Under Russian supervision | 25th Division conduct military exercises in eastern Aleppo countryside

Explosions were heard in Al-Juboul area in south eastern Aleppo countryside, coinciding with Russian warplanes doing manoeuvres during exercises by the Russian-backed 25th Division under supervision of Russian forces, in the area used for military exercises in Al-Joboul (mountains).

The forces were trained on using artillery and missiles targeting fake targets and on carrying out airdrop operations.

This comes in light of the ongoing cooperation between regime and Russian forces in regime areas in Syria.

On November 9, Russian-backed 25th Division conducted joint military exercises with aerial support by Russian warplanes in the region near Jabal Kafra’a in northwestern Hama countryside.
The exercises included parachuting operations for soldiers and hitting fake targets with artillery shells and missiles, alongside military maneuvers in the region’s airspace.
On November 5, SOHR sources reported that Russian-backed 25th Division conducted military exercises, with the participation and supervision of Russian forces, near Kuwaires in the eastern countryside of Aleppo, in parallel with the flight of Russian warplanes over the area.
The exercises included parachuting operations for soldiers and hitting fake targets with artillery guided missiles.
