On September 26, a new wave of Russian airstrikes targeted the Turkish-occupied area of Afrin in Syria’s northern region. 

Three of the airstrikes destroyed a headquarters of the Turkish-backed Hamzah Division located near the historical town of Barad in southern Afrin. At least 11 militants were killed and 13 others were wounded as a result of the airstrikes. Many of the wounded are reportedly in a critical condition.

At around the same time, a series of Russian airstrikes hit the northwestern region of Greater Idlib. The airstrikes targeted the outskirts of the town of al-Bara in the southern countryside of Idlib, where a Turkish post is located.

A day earlier, Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on Afrin in response to an attack by Turkish-backed militants on a post of the Syrian Arab Army situated to the south of the occupied area. Several militants of the Turkish-backed al-Shamiya Front were reportedly killed in the airstrikes.

The situation in northern and northwestern Syria appears to be spinning out of control. Russia is unsatisfied with Turkey’s strategy there.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on September 25 at a press conference devoted to the outcome of his visit to New York for the 76th session of the UN General Assembly that Greater Idlib is the last “terrorist outpost” in Syria.

“Our positions and the positions of the Syrian military in the de-escalation zone [Greater Idlib] are being attacked, and we will not allow that,” Lavrov said.

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to discuss the unstable situation in Greater Idlib with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on September 29.

This is a great time to get in there and start that long awaited ruthless slaughter…..just like gutting pigs for fun. These jihadists must be killed before they are used as cannon fodder by turdogan

Chris Gr

Let Syria have a Stalinist dictator if moderates cannot do a thing.

Ahson

What moderates? The one who cuts off your testicles and lets you go? instead of cutting off your head? That moderate?……lol

Chris Gr

I mean secularists and moderate Islamics.

Ahson

Chris Gr

Assad is very extreme secularist

Ahson

Ok….extreme secularist now? Nothing to do with religion no? So what’s the problem then? You should rub that mangina of yours on Assad and cum all over his Semitic face then no?…..come on no?…..lol

Kurds are Turcophiles except for YPG/PKK.

Chris Gr

Unfortunately, HTS is stronger than FSA just like Taliban are stronger than Northern Alliance. The more radical you are the crazier you are.

Ahson

Whats the difference between FSA and Al-Qaeda? or Al-Qaeda and Al-Nusra? or Daesh and ISIS? or Al-Qaeda and Wahabbi? or Wahabbi and Salafi? or Takfiri and Jihadi?……..lol

Chris Gr

FSA is more moderate.

Ahson

Is that all what you’ve learnt watching BBC/ CNN?

Chris Gr

CNN calls Biden moderate while the people that resist are “extremist” to them.

A clueless clown. As you mentioned before youthfulness is often equated to ignorance.

Right junior. Keep trying. You have already been exposed as an imbecile of limited intelligence here on SF.

Chris Gr

Grandpa you don’t even show who you are.

They are not Syrian militants, they are Turkish proxies. Victory to Russia!
