Aerospace Forces bombers destroy militants on the border with Turkey under the cover of Su-35


Russian aviation in Syria has stepped up its activities, destroying units of pro-Turkish Islamists on the border with Turkey, in the settlements of Kafr Aruk and Kharanbush in the north of the Idlib province.


Air reconnaissance tracked down the places of hidden deployment and movement of terrorists of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham group (the former Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda - both organizations are banned in Russia). In particular, in the course of tracking the jihadists sitting in a pickup truck with a large-caliber machine gun, an underground tunnel was discovered that served to shelter a military equipment from Russian videoconferencing.


Front-line Su-24 bombers, under the cover of multipurpose super-maneuverable Su-35 fighters, inflicted a series of attacks on the militants, bombing underground communications and destroying enemy equipment.


Observing the terrorists in a wooded area also revealed the location of their field headquarters in one of the structures, which was later destroyed during an attack by the Russian aerospace forces.

The operation against the jihadists became a natural reaction of the SAR troops and Russian military personnel to Ankara's inability to control the units subordinate to it, attacking areas under the control of the Syrian government army in the conflict de-escalation zone in Idlib.

    Well, it finally came to light that the strike vehicles needed to provide fighter cover. That’s why they would start covering the Mi-8 with attack helicopters.

    Oh, how, and that the militants got Raptors, or did they get the hang of the SU-24 with stones, that it took cover fighters, or are these the ones that left the airfield last year?

    It's useless. Among the 11 million refugees from Assad, there will always be those who want revenge. For one killed jihadist two will come. It has long been necessary to understand that while Assad is at the helm there, neither Turkey nor the United States will leave Syria. This rotten stuff for years and extra expenses for the Russian Federation.

      Assad is the legitimate president, let it be better for the United States and Turkey to die and the refugees return!

        Half of the Syrian population voted against Assad with their feet. But someone else's grief obviously doesn't matter to you. There are only two countries on the Ball who really support him. The rest have a conscience.

          They voted against the war, which our foreign "partners" brought to Syria on the wings of democracy. Not against Assad.

            For those who are not very literate. There has been a Civil War in Syria since 2011.

            If you had at least a gram of logic, you would ask yourself the question - "Why do people run from Assad, and not to him.?"

            You are deeply mistaken. Feelings are different. And your feelings for the United States are not needed for the whole world. This is a sign of ignorance.
            The same Japanese in their bulk love the United States and even copy their way of life. They do not remember the evil for Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

              Throw away this infectious mattress propaganda. Otherwise, we will restore the NKVD, they will quickly explain everything.
