BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 A.M.) – The Russian military unleashed their wrath over the Idlib Governorate, tonight, targeting several areas controlled by the jihadist rebels in the western part of the province.

According to a Syrian military source in Latakia, the Russian military began their attack by launching several airstrikes over Idlib city, Idlib Central Prison, Al-Mastouma, Ariha, and Sheikh ‘Ali.  

Following the airstrikes, the source stated that the Russian Navy fired a number of cruise missiles towards these same areas in Idlib, resulting in several explosions.

The Russian assault was conducted in retaliation for militant attempt to attack the Hmaymim Airport with a drone earlier tonight.

Prior to this large-scale attack, the Russian Aerospace Forces had not launched any airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate in the last 72 hours.
