BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The Russian Air Force resumed their surveillance flights over the Idlib province on Thursday as several of their spy planes were seen flying over the jihadist positions along the demilitarized zone.

According to a military source in Latakia, the Russian Air Force’s IL-20 spy planes conducted several flights across the Idlib province, concentrating heavily on the movements of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

The Russian IL-20 spy planes were reportedly monitoring closely the jihadist movements inside the Al-Ghaab Plain and the Jisr Al-Shughour District.

These aforementioned areas are filled with jihadist rebels from both Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

For months, the Russian military has tried to get Turkey to force these groups to back away from the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) front-lines in northwest Syria; however, they have failed to do so.

In turn, the Russian Air Force has zeroed in on the jihadist positions and made their presence known above the skies in the Idlib province.
