The Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) resumed on December 15 its combat operations against terrorists’ positions in the so-called Greater Idlib region in northwest Syria.
According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), Syrian attack helicopters carried out in the early morning a series of airstrikes on the towns of Alteh and Ma’ar Shoreen in the southern Idlib countryside.
Terrorists’ fortifications around the town of Kabani in the northern Lattakia countryside were also targeted with several airstrikes.
Earlier this week, the SyAAF halted its combat and even reconnaissance operations over Greater Idlib as a result of bad weather conditions. This allowed terrorist groups in the region to launch more attacks than usual.
This new wave of airstrikes comes amid claims by several pro-government activists that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is preparing to launch a large-scale military operation in Greater Idlib in the upcoming few days.
