The mobilization of Syrian warplanes for the strikes is huge and being conducted out of a number of bases across northwest Syria.

Air strikes – involving the use of rockets, bombs and cannon fire – by Syrian warplanes are currently targeting militant fire-support positions, gathering points, convoy movements, supply bases and lines of communication.

The main areas where terrorists are being struck so far include the stronghold cities of Khan Sheykoun, Kafr Zita and Al-Latamaneh as well as the militant-controlled frontier towns of Al-Hobait, Arbaeen and Az-Zakah.
