Russian, Syrian aviation bombs terrorist headquarters in Idlib

Damascus Oct 1 (Prensa Latina) Russian and Syrian fighter planes carried out dozens of raids against barracks and positions of radical groups in the south and west of the northern province of Idlib.

Images released by local media showed dozens of bombed targets in the vicinity of al-Bara village in Jabal al-Zawiya plateau in southern Idlib and in the vicinity of al-Ziyarah village in al-Ghab plain in northwestern Hama province, where dozens of extremists were reportedly eliminated.

Separately, Syrian Army units fired hundreds of missiles at radical positions in the Jesser al-Shughur municipality in western Idlib; and in the towns of Kansafra, Fatirah, Ariha, Batna and Qalb Loza.

The bombings take place two days after the summit in the Russian city of Sochi between Turkish President Recep Tayyib Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which they agreed to clear Idlib from illegal armed groups.

Likewise, press reports talk about the dispatch of military reinforcements in preparation for an operation aimed at expelling the terrorists from the areas south of the M-4 road, which links the provinces of Latakia and Aleppo; and reopening this strategic route. In its operations during 2020, the Syrian Army managed to liberate 56 percent of Idlib, but the radicals control less than half of it, where they are holding hundreds of thousands of civilians as human shields.
