Syrian Air Force unleashes more airstrikes over Idlib

For the second time on Friday, February 28, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) launched several airstrikes over the Idlib countryside, Al-Masdar News says.

Using their L-39 Albatross, the Syrian Air Force heavily bombarded Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions outside of the large towns of Ma’arat Al-Nu’Man and Khan Sheikhoun.

According to a military source in the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Air Force carried out the airstrikes in retaliation for Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s attack on the government-held areas.

Furthermore, the Syrian Air Force also targeted the Turkish-backed National Liberation Front’s positions in the Ma’arat Al-Nu’man countryside.

The latest round of airstrikes comes just hours after the Syrian Air Force bombed a military convoy belonging to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham along the Saraqib Highway in northeast Idlib.
