  • 'Syrian, Russian airstrikes inflict heavy losses on terrorists in Idlib'

Russian and Syrian fighter jets have reportedly targeted positions belonging to foreign-backed Takfiri terrorists in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib near the Turkish border.

Sources close to terrorists said on Sunday that Russian warplanes hit a gas facility used by the militants near Sarmada city.

Reuters cited militant sources and witnesses as saying that the airstrikes left dozens of trailers carrying goods in a parking lot near the border crossing of Bab al-Hawa aflame.

A Twitter account dubbed “Syriawatan News” reported that the Russia aerial attack targeted a gas facility used by terrorists on the outskirts of Sarmada, without elaborating.

Moscow has yet to comment on the news.

Syriawatan News also said Syrian airstrikes hit terrorist positions between Sarmada and the border crossing of Bab al-Hawa on Sunday.
