“De-escalation zone” | Russian jets strike positions a few metres away from Turkish military post in Jabal al-Zawiyah

Regime bombardment on southern Idlib kills and injures five fighters

SOHR activists in the “de-escalation zone” have reported renewed airstrikes by Russian jets, after suspension of  aerial operations for a week. The Russian fighter jets executed three airstrikes on the perimeter of the Turkish military post in al-Barah in Jabal al-Zawiyah in the southern countryside of Idlib, as the Russian missiles hit positions a few metres away from the Turkish post. However, no casualties have been reported.


On the other hand, regime forces bombarded positions in Sarjeh, Quqfin in the southern countryside of Idlin and Kafr Ta’al in the western countryside of Aleppo with Russian-made shells “Krasinball”, killing an opposition fighter and injuring four others in Quqfin.


On October 12, SOHR activists reported that the Russian fighters bombarded four air strikes on Tilal al-Khoder in north countryside of Latikkia province, but no casualties were reported.


It is worth noting that the new Russian bombardments were resumed after five days of halt on Putin-Erodoghan area.


While on October 7, SOHR activists documented air raids by Russian aircrafts in the morning on the vicinity of Basanqoul village in west Idlib that hit al-Aasaeb al-Hamara headquarters that is affiliated to HTS which led to the murder of a member of the HTS and wounded other seven in the air attack.
