The airstrikes were launched concurrent with the army’s continued operations to establish security in Aleppo’s Western fronts.
“The Syrian warplanes bombed the terrorists’ positions in Jisr al-Shaqour, Ma’arat al-Nu’aman, Saraqib, Jonoudiyeh, Khan Sheikhoun and Afis in Idlib,” a military source said on Thursday.
According to the source, the air force continues reconnaissance flights in the region to monitor the terrorists’ supply routes which link Idlib to Aleppo.
Reports said on Tuesday that the Syrian and Russian fighter jets targeted terrorist groups’ positions badly in Southern Idlib to prevent them from dispatching arms, ammunition and fresh forces for their comrades in Aleppo battlefields.
Simultaneous with the start of the Syrian army operation to reinvigorate the security situation in the Western parts of Aleppo city, the Syrian and Russian warplanes carried out tens of combat flights over terrorists’ centers in the towns and villages of Khan Sheikhoun, Saraqib, surroundings of Banish, Taftnaz and Ma’arat al-Nu’aman to prevent militants to transfer arms, ammunition and fresh forces to Aleppo battlefields.
Russian fighter jets targeted terrorists’ positions near the city of Idlib closed to an arms and ammunition depot, leaving several terrorists dead.
A military source disclosed that Russian and Syrian fighter jets are continuously flying over militant-held regions to monitor supply lines of terrorists from Idlib to Aleppo.
