BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force carried out a powerful attack on the jihadist-held Taftanaz Airbase Saturday, targeting several sites in and around this installation in the Idlib Governorate.

Following this attack, a military source from the Syrian Army told Al-Masdar that more than 30 militants from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and their allied factions were kiled as a result of the bombing.

Among those allegedly killed were two field commanders from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham; they were not identified in name.

The Russian Air Force launched their largest attack of the month on Saturday, as their military choppers and jets unleashed dozens of airstrikes over Idlib, Hama, and Latakia.

Esta noticia ya no es relevante para el mundo, en los medios mas se habla de la invasión Turca sobre territorio Sirio y la pasividad de Rusia frente a Erdogan.

These clowns hear the jets/choppers and whip out their phone cameras. They film everything. Happens all the time. Not familiar with this base. Are you saying this is an isolated area or person filming is the mole who provided Russia the intell?

Not sure if they would hear the jet on a bombing run until it was too late so I was thinking more likely someone who perhaps knew the building was going to be targeted or just pure luck to be filming at that time. No matter as long as those inside ended up mixed with the dust.
