Russian Air Force pounds Nusra in Idlib, 4 Nusra turbans mysteriously toes up
[AlMasdar] The Russian Air Force has unleashed a new series of airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate this evening, targeting several sites under the control of the jihadist rebels.

According to a military source in northwestern Syria, the Russian Air Force primarily targeted Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions around Idlib city tonight.

In particular, the source said the Russian Air Force heavily bombarded the Idlib Central Prison and several small towns near the provincial capital.

No further details have been released at this time.

Meanwhile, in eastern Syria, the Syrian Air Force is currently bombarding the terrain around the key desert city of Al-Sukhnah; this is the area the Islamic State attacked last week.

The Syrian Army is looking to retake the territories they lost near the small desert town of Al-Kawm.

Four jihadists mysteriously gunned down in southern Idlib

[AlMasdar] Four jihadist rebels were gunned down mysteriously on Sunday after a group of unknown assailants opened fire on them in the southern countryside of the Idlib governorate.

According to pro-militant media, four memebrs of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham were killed while they were traveling near the town of Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

In the past, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) sleeper cells have carried out similar attacks like this, prompting Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham to launch a security operation to crack down on these strikes.

Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham is currently the most powerful rebel group in northwestern Syria; they control most of the Idlib Governorate and much of western Aleppo.
