Russia Increases Airstrikes on Terrorists in Syria

TEHRAN The Russian Air Force has increased its airstrikes against the terrorists in Idlib province in Northwestern Syria, media reports said.

The Russian Air Force carried out dozens of airstrikes over terrorists' centers in Hama and Idlib provinces this week after a relatively quiet end to the month of June, the Arabic-language al-Masdar News quoted Russian Army source as saying.

The source said the recent rise in Russia's military activities comes just days after collapsed ceasefire talks with the Turkish Armed Forces with regard to the situation in Northwestern Syria.

The Russian Air Force pounded several military positions of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) and Jeish al-Izza South-West of Idlib province.

The Russian Air Force pounded the terrorists' supply line from the town of Khan Sheikhoun to the Sahl al-Ghab.

In a relevant development on Wednesday, at least 25 terrorists were killed and wounded in air raids by the Russian fighter jets on the military centers of the special forces of the National Liberation Front (NLF) in Idlib.

The London-based pro-militant Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the Russian warplanes pounded the NFL's headquarters in Medya town in Southern Idlib.

It noted that 15 terrorists were killed and 10 others were injured in the air raids.

In a relevant development on Monday, the Syrian Army's ground and air forces conducted a series of operations against the military positions and movements of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib, destroying several of their key centers and military positions.

The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper reported that the Syrian Army's artillery and missile units pounded the terrorists' military positions and movements in the towns of al-Arbaeen, al-Sayyad and al-Latamineh in Northern Hama.

The Syrian Air Force also pounded the military positions and movements of Tahrir al-Sham and other terrorist groups in the towns of al-Jabin, Kafar Sajneh, al-Naqir, Kafar Nubl, Ariha, Jbal al-Arbaeen, Sarjeh, Taftnaz, Madaya, Khan Sheikhoun, al-Hobait and al-Amerieh in Northern Hama and Southern Idlib.

Several centers and military positions of the terrorists were destroyed in the Syrian Army attacks on safe zones in Northern Syria and their military equipment was also destroyed.

A large number of terrorists, including several of their commanders, were also killed in the Syrian airstrikes.

Meantime, Tahrir al-Sham in rocket attacks pounded the residential areas in in the city of Mahradeh, towns of al-Aziziyeh, Bardij and al-Karkat in Northwestern Hama.
