BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:15 A.M.) – The Russian and Syrian air forces took no prisoners on Wednesday night, carrying out dozens of airstrikes across the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

Russian and Syrian air battalions flying out of the Hmaymim Airfields in Latakia and Shay’rat Airbase in east Homs led the way last night, targeting the jihadist defenses inside the towns of Taybat Al-Imam, Latamneh, Halfaya, and Kafr Zita.

According to a military source in Hama, the purpose of these nonstop airstirkes was to weaken the jihadist resolve in the area before the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) storms the aforementioned towns.

The Syrian Arab Army’s next target is expected to be Taybat Al-Imam; however, their previous assault on the town was foiled by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.
