Syrian, Russian Warplanes Stage Joint Raid on Terrorists’ Most Important Positions in Hama
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian and Russian fighter jets launched massive air raids on hideouts, tunnels and arms depots of Al-Nusra Front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) in a key town in Northwestern Hama, destroying several command posts, a well-informed military source said Sunday.
The source said that the Russian and Syrian fighter jets bombed the caves and tunnels of Al-Nusra in the town of Latamina, destroying the caves and tunnels that were used by the terrorists to depot weapons, ammunition and US-made anti-tank TOW missiles.
The source further added that several command posts with a number of commanders inside and several underground hideouts of Al-Nusra were targeted and destroyed by powerful missiles of the warplanes in Latamina.
Relevant reports said on Saturday that the Russian warplanes, simultaneous with the army troops’ operation South of the town of Halfaya, carried out ten combat sorties and bombed heavily the positions of Jeish al-Izzah and Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board) in Halfaya, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.
Field sources reported that the army used hundreds of soldiers and attacked terrorists’ positions South of Halfaya but a large number of militants in the battlefield slowed down the government forces’ advances in the region.
In the meantime, the army men launched fresh attacks on terrorists’ strongholds in various regions in Northern Hama and managed to advance in regions stretching to the towns of Souran and Taybat al-Imam.
