Khan Sheikhun under a hail of blows

The Syrian Arab Army continues to strike at terrorist positions in southern Idlib and northern Hama. The largest part of air and artillery attacks falls on the city of Khan Sheikhun, taking control of which will completely free the northern part of the province of Hama from terrorists.

Aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces is also actively involved in air strikes, and this is not about uncontrolled bombing of the city and its environs. And about the suppression of the militants' shelters, the destruction of weapons depots and ammunition, which will greatly simplify the control of Khan Sheikhun.

At the moment, the Syrian army has managed to approach the city of Khan Sheikhun at a distance of 1-1,5 kilometers, which allows direct bombardment of the positions of terrorists, who, according to some reports, have lost about 350 militants in the last three days.

Erdogan allowed to bomb the Syrian army

Against the backdrop of the ongoing attack on Khan Sheikhun, the Turkish Ministry of Defense allowed its military aircraft to attack the positions of the Syrian government forces if the latter attempt to occupy Khan Sheikhun.

There are no official comments on this subject yet, however, experts draw attention to the fact that in this case, the SAA will also attack the positions of the Turkish military on its territory, where, the latter, are absolutely illegal. Moreover, in the upcoming operation in northern Syria, Turkey may begin to suffer serious losses, as the Syrian military can begin to attack Turkish military aircraft with its air defense systems.
