Syria’s Nation Defense Forces (NDF), backed up by the country’s Air Force, warded off a heavy offensive by the Al-Nusra front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) in the besieged towns of Fua’a and Kafraya in the Northeastern countryside of Idlib city on Saturday.

The NDF in Fua’a and Kafraya, North-East of Idlib city, that are under the terrorist groups’ siege exchanged heavy fire with the Al-Nusra in al-Sawaqiyeh farms, and managed to fend off the Al-Nusra offensive after killing or wounding a number of militants.

Also, the army aircraft pounded the strongholds and movements of the Al-Nusra in al-Sawaqiyeh farms and other areas near the town of Taftnaz in Northeastern Idlib and in Ram Hamdan settlement North of Hamdan region.

In the meantime, other air force warplanes launched a heavy bombing on terrorists’ positions in the village of al-Arba’een in Northern Hama and in Tal (hill) al-Waset in Northwestern Hama, inflicting major casualties on the militants.

In a similar development on Friday, the Russian Air Force carried out a fresh round of combat flights over terrorist-held regions in Idlib province, inflicting major losses on the militants.

The Russian warplanes bombed terrorists’ positions heavily, specifically the positions of Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) near the towns of Naqir and Ma’ar Zita in Southern Idlib.

According to pro-opposition accounts, the fighter jets were using bunker buster high explosive bombs to target Tahrir Al-Sham’s bases.
