Russian Warplanes Target Turkish Weapons Convoy in Syria

(FNA) ~ The Russian fighter jets bombed a Turkish convoy of trucks carrying weapons to terrorist groups in Syria.
The airstrikes hit the trucks which were carrying weapons from Turkey to the Takfiri terrorists fighting in Syria near Azaz town in Aleppo
on Wednesday.

Also on Wednesday, the Syrian and Russian warplanes intensified their air raids on positions of the Takfiri terrorists across Aleppo province.

The Russian and Syrian airstrikes hit the Takfiri militants’ positions in the Southern countryside of Aleppo, the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television said.

There were no immediate reports of possible casualties among the terrorists.

Earlier on Wednesday, sources said the Syrian Army and its allies have significantly advanced against the ISIL militants in the Eastern part of Aleppo province and have won back the important Humaymah hilltop.

The sources said that the Syria army, the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF) and the Lebanese Hezbollah fighters continued their joint anti-terrorism operation near the town of Humaymah al-Kabeera, and seized control over the strategic Tal Humaymah after fierce clashes with the Takfiri terrorists.

The sources further added that after recapturing of Tal Humaymah, the pro-government forces are now in a good position to strike the Western sector of the town that is currently under the control of the ISIL.

Humaymah al-Kabeera is strategically located to the East of the Kuweires Military Airport and to the West of the ISIL stronghold of Deir Hafer.

The Aleppo-Raqqa highway is passing through the middle of Humaymah al-Kabeera town.

Earlier reports said on Wednesday that the Syrian army launched an attack on ISIL defensive positions along the strategic Aleppo-Raqqa highway, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorists.

The Syrian forces launched a powerful assault on ISIL defensive positions along the highway, targeting the Siyasko Chemical Factory’s Western perimeter.

Following a series of fierce clashes with militants at the Eastern perimeter of the Siyasko Chemical Factory, the Syrian forces and its allies regained full control over the Aleppo-Raqqa Highway entrance to this facility.

Russian Defense Ministry refutes reports on destruction of relief convoy by Russian jets

(TASS) ~ Reports that Russian warplanes have allegedly hit a Syrian relief convoy, which was on its way from Turkey, is speculation, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesperson Major General Igor Konashenkov told journalists on Thursday.

“Foreign media reports that Russian warplanes have allegedly destroyed a column of trucks from an ‘aid convoy’, which was on its way from Turkey, near the Bab el Salam border crossing are speculation,” the major general said.

Konashenkov drew the journalists’ attention to the fact that the photos and video materials from the scene did not show any craters from explosions and no splinters which were supposed to have cut all the trucks subject to the shelling and bombardment.

“Finally, nothing was left of those ammunitions. Therefore, we would recommend you not to try to pass off a burning truck convoy with munitions meant for the militants operating to the north of Aleppo as relief aid next time,” the Russian general said.

“The Turkish side never notified anybody that it was planning to send a relief convoy. Let alone, that any aid convoy should have special identification marks,” he added.
