The Syrian Arab Army and the Russian Army continue their coordinated bombing campaign for the 6th day against the fortifications and quarters of the NATO-sponsored Al Qaeda terrorists in Idlib in retaliation to the escalated terrorist attacks against the civilians carried out by these NATO proxy forces on the 22nd of this month.
Following is a timeline of the main Syrian Arab Army’s artillery shelling and the Russian Aerospace Forces’ bombing of Al Qaeda posts in Idlib in the past 6 days:

The bank of targets was precisely identified after the reconnaissance planes monitored the locations from which modified and armed drones launched their attacks on the homes and neighborhoods of civilians in the countryside of Latakia and Hama over the past two days.

One of the air raids today also targeted a farm that the terrorists use as a headquarters, west of the Corniche, on the outskirts of the city of Idlib, which led to the death of a number of them and the burning of one of their vehicles.
Al-Jazeera Mubasher’s correspondent filmed the results of the targeting from afar and did not approach the place, not even zooming, so as not to show the losses of the militants.
NATO and Al Qaeda propagandists claimed that the attack was against a children’s school, as usual.
Local sources confirm deaths and injuries among the terrorists as a result of the air raids of the Russian warplanes on the axes of the western countryside of Idlib and the northern countryside of Latakia.
The Syrian Ministry of Defense issued the following statement:
“In response to the attacks carried out by armed terrorist groups during the past few days on the countryside of Hama and Lattakia, which claimed the lives of a number of civilians and caused great material damage to the property of the people, our valiant armed forces, in cooperation with the Russian Air Force, carried out several qualitative operations targeting the headquarters and warehouses of terrorists in the countryside of Idlib and locations Launching drones.”
The statement carries on naming the terrorists killed during the raids: “The qualitative military operations led to the destruction of the terrorists’ quarters and warehouses for weapons, ammunition, and drones, killing dozens of terrorists and injuring others, and a number of the leaders of terrorist groups were known, including:
- Abdul Karim Abu Dawood al-Turkistani

9 pm: The Syrian Arab Army bombed with rocket launchers the positions of the Al-Nusra Front in the vicinity of the city of Jisr Al-Shughour in Idlib countryside.
Reports of over 50 terrorists killed by the SAA bombing, details revealed the next day.
28 June 2023:
11:00 am: Russian and Syrian aviation launched a complex attack on the command post and underground shelter of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terrorists near Sarjah in the Idlib de-escalation zone.
As reported the earlier day, more than 50 HTS fighters were killed and wounded as a result of the strike.
The targeted site in the village of Sarjah in the countryside of Idlib was a large compound for HTS (al Qaeda Levant) that includes a command headquarters, a weapons depot, and a garage for heavy weapons, and it was targeted by 5 raids from air bombers, followed by a series of strikes from the army’s artillery. The terrorists admitted that 8 of their members have been killed and that ‘the death toll is likely to rise.’
Some of the terrorists who were identified:
- Commander Abu Karmo Morek
- Dawood Muhammad
- Abu Seif Mustafa Al-Sahili
- Haidara Mahmoud Al-Ghab
- Abu Al-Baraa Abyan
- Abu Sayfo al-Hamawi
- Abu Mujahid Rabi` al-Ghab
- Abu Al-Zubair Serji
- Radwan Rihan
- Abdul Hamid Akl
- Abu Ahmad Sheikh Sindyan
Infighting erupted between the US-sponsored plethora of al Qaeda terrorist groups in the targeted areas with each group accusing the other of leaking information used by the Syrian intelligence to identify the targets destroyed by the Syrian artillery and the Russian air force bombing.
The latest escalation by the NATO Turkey-sponsored Al Qaeda Levant (HTS – Nusra Front) comes as talks were ongoing in Moscow within the Astana Framework to end the war on Syria with the participation of Syria, Russia, Iran, and Turkey, the member state of the NATO ‘defensive’ alliance.
Despite news that the Turks agreed to stop supporting their terrorists in these talks, their terrorists escalated their attacks on the Syrian towns and villages within the reach of their missiles and drones in the countryside of Latakia, Hama, and Idlib.
If the Turks were sincere, and they have never been, they could easily withdraw their troops illegally occupying Syrian territories and providing military cover to the terrorists’ main quarters, they can stop the flow of money and weapons coming from NATO and the Gulfies, Qatar and Kuwait in particular, and limit the freedom of movement of the terrorists and close their propaganda outlets in Turkey.
The above was supposed to be concluded within three months after the Idlib Agreement was agreed upon between the above-mentioned parties in September 2018, in which Russia and Iran would play the role of guarantors for the Turks, obviously, the Russians and Iranians failed in their tasks to guarantee the implementation of the Idlib Agreement by the Turks who instead of withdrawing their troops from Syria and dismantle the terrorist groups, have beefed the numbers of their terrorists and increased the supplies of their weapons.
