MOSCOW, November 17. /TASS/. Militants from Jebhat al-Nusra have sustained serious losses as a a result of a massive fire strike last Tuesday, Russian Defense Ministry's official spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Thursday.
"As a result of strikes delivered by Su-33 carrier-based fighter jets and air group of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, a large gang of the Jebhat al-Nusra group was destroyed in the province of Idlib," Konashenkov said.
Different intelligence sources confirmed that at least 30 terrorists were killed, including well-known field commanders Muhammad Helala, Abu Jaber Harmuja and Abul Baha Al-Asfari. Abul Baha al-Asfari was responsible for uniting the remaining groups of Jebhat al-Nusra in the provinces of Aleppo and Hama, as well as for planning and leading another offensive at Aleppo by militants, Konashenkov said.
