Over 180 Syrian & Russian Airstrikes Targeted Greater Idlib In Last 48 Hours (Videos)
Syrian and Russian warplanes carried out more than 180 airstrikes on Greater Idlib over the last 48 hours, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.
According to the London-based monitoring group, the airstrikes on July 5 and 6 covered several towns and villages in the northern, northwestern Hama countryside as well as in the southern countryside of Idlib.
Step News, an Idlib-based outlet, released several videos of the airstrikes showing a Mi-8\17 helicopter and an Ababil-3 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and a Su-24M2 of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
In the late hours of July 5, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its allies launched a ground attack on positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama. However, the army repelled the attack. The intense Syrian and Russian airstrikes on Greater Idlib were likely a response to this failed attack.
