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.
