On July 28, a new wave of Russian airstrikes targeted militants’ positions in the northwestern Syrian region of Greater Idlib.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a total of seven airstrikes hit the outskirts of the town of Duwayr al-Akrad in the northwestern Hama countryside as well as hills surrounding the town of Kabani in the northern Lattakia countryside.

A day earlier, at least 18 Russian airstrikes targeted Greater Idlib. Ten airstrikes hit the town of Kansafra and al-Bara in the southern countryside of Idlib and eight others targeted positions in Duwayr al-Akrad and the town of Sirmaniyah in the northwestern Hama countryside.

Recently, the Russian Aerospace Forces have stepped up its combat operations against militants in Greater Idlib. The measure came in response to the militants’ repeated violations of the ceasefire in the region, which was brokered by Russia and Turkey last year.

Led by the de-facto ruler of Greater Idlib, al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, the militants shell government-held towns and are targeting Syrian military posts and personnel on a daily basis.

Turkey, a guarantor of the ceasefire agreement in Greater Idlib, is doing nothing whatsoever to stop these violations. As a result, the ceasefire may collapse soon.

Bombing alone won't win wars

The simple military fact is that bombing is a strategic and operational tool and not intended to regain territory. The SAA needs to push further into the Idlib terrorist enclave and then an effective combined arms operation needs to be coordinated with Russian airpower. It is quite baffling that not an inch of ground has been reclaimed since Aleppo was liberated. It is time to squeeze the terrorist areas and then escalate bombing and artillery strikes. The whole area occupied by the US sponsored terrorists and Turkeys is barely 5000 sq kms and would make an excellent kill zone.


They need to solve the Daara situation first

Yes, but it would deplete wahhabis and other terrorist from money and logistics. Say one million worth logistics goes into flames from one single kab bomb. Yes, they can get another one, but it is hard to keep up with demolition and destruction of theirs fortifications and equipment.


russia is so poor and corrupt that they cant afford to use guided munitions. they only use old free falling bombs because the economy is so terrible
