Russia launches new airstrikes on Wahhabi terrorists in Idlib, Syria

The Russian Defence Ministry said its fighter jets have carried out a series of airstrikes on the positions of the members of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorist outfit in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib, killing dozens of terrorists in the process.

The Deputy head of the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria, Major General Oleg Yegorov said the air attacks destroyed three camps of the terrorists in Sheikh Yousef village, which lies in the Armanaz sub-district of the province.

He added that weapons depots and warehouses of the militants were destroyed as a result. More than 45 militants, including field commanders Bilal Saeed and Abu Dujan al-Diri, were also killed.

Yegorov noted that the slain takfiri terrorists were involved in attacks on Syrian troops and civilians in the Idlib de-escalation zone. They also took part in organised terrorist attacks on government-controlled territories across Syria.
