20 Terrorist Commanders Killed in Russian Airstrikes in Idlib

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian fighter jets pounded the venue of a meeting held between Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham terrorist groups in Idlib province to discuss overcoming their differences, killing nearly two dozen militant commanders.

At least 20 militants from Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham were killed in the Russian airstrike hitting their meeting in Salqin region of Idlib province, the Arabic-language service of Russia Today reported on Monday.

The Faliq al-Sham terrorist group had organized the meeting between the Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham in a bid to mediate between them and urge them to put aside their differences.

In a relevant development on Friday, Scores of terrorists, including two senior field commanders of Jeish al-Fatah and Ahrar al-Sham, were killed in the Syrian Army attacks in the Southern part of Idlib province.

“Over 20 terrorists of Jeish al-Fatah, including their commander al-Sheikh Ghali, were killed as a result of the Syria arm’s offensive near the village of Hzano in the Northwestern province of Idlib,” military sources said Friday.

“In the meantime, Hassan Barabo, an Emir within Ahrar al-Sham military ranks, was killed by the Syrian soldiers near the village of Kafr Oweid in the Western side of Maarat al-Mu’man,” the sources further added.

Also on Wednesday, 15 members of the terrorist groups were killed in two special operations carried out by the Syrian commandoes in the Southern part of Idlib province.

“The Syrian commandoes, in a special operation, targeted the terrorists’ gathering near Saraqib, killed eight militants and wounded several more,” an army officer said.

“At least seven members of Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group were killed by another unit of the Syrian commandoes in the village of al-Hamidiyeh, while some other were wounded and their military grid sustained major damage,” the source further added.

    Reminds me of the U-boat campaign of ww2.

    The smart commanders realized quickly that the boats that used their radios, were the ones that got sunk.

    I recon satellite phone signals probably make targeting of command posts a lot easier.

    Taking out twenty terrorist commanders at one spot, that must be human intelligence at work! Well done!
