The Russian Air Force carried out another series of airstrikes over the southern Aleppo countryside on Sunday night, targeting the jihadist controlled villages of Khan Touman, Al-Zorba, Tal Al-‘Eiss, and Khan Al-‘Assal.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate town of Al-Safira, the Russian Air Force specifically targeted the village of Khan Touman in order to alleviate the pressure on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers at Al-Qarassi and Khalsah.

Some pro-government social media pages reported that the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have launched an offensive to recapture Khan Touman from the jihadist rebels; however, these claims have not been confirmed.

Over the weekend, Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda group), Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and Faylaq Al-Sham launched a large-scale offensive near Khan Touman, capturing several sites from the Syrian Armed Forces in the process.
