TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The Su-34 precision airstrike also destroyed Tahrir al-Sham’s “largest underground ammunition depot” near the town of Abu ad-Duhur, which contained “over 1,000 tons of artillery shells and multiple launch rockets,” RT quoted the military as saying on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Russia’s Defense Ministry said Abu Mohammad al-Julani, the leader of Tahrir al-Sham, who was critically injured in another Russian airstrike in Idlib on Tuesday, has gone into coma.
Tahrir al-Sham was formed in January as a merger between Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly al-Nusra Front) and several other Takfiri groups in Syria. Jabhat Fateh al-Sham is currently considered as the leader of the coalition.
Since 2015, Russia has been conducting aerial attacks against terrorist positions in Syria at a request from the Syrian government.
Backed by Russian air power, Syrian ground forces have managed to make numerous gains against terrorists on various fronts.
As part of their latest achievements, Syrian army forces have flushed Daesh Takfiri militants out of their last positions in the western-central province of Hama and seized full control over several more positions and outposts near the country's border with Jordan.
On Monday, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said the main battles in Syria have almost reached the end and Damascus is writing the “final chapter” of the crisis.
