MOSCOW, (BM) – The press service of the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation announced that aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS), at the request of the Turkish side, had carried out four air missile strikes against positions of the rebels in Idlib province, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
The Turkey’s request for help is caused by the fact that, in violation of the terms of the “regime of silence” in Idlib’s de-escalation zone, on the night of June 13, one of the terrorist groups near Jabhat al-Nusra has committed an artillery strike against Turkish military post.
According to the coordinates that have been given by the Turkish army, the Russian Aerospace Forces have hit and destroyed concentrations of enemy manpower and artillery positions along with their cannons and personnel in the areas of the Dokmak settlement and the height of Cebel-Taverta.
The emerged situation showed with complete clarity that the Turks could not deal with the problem in Idlib on their own, as they insisted earlier. Therefore, regardless of whether Ankara would like it, it will have to accept the fact that the Syrian army will purge terrorist groups in Idlib province.
The Russian Aerospace Forces are actively attacking the terrorists in the northern part of Hamas province, where military operations are taking place in the area of the military base Tal Salba.
