Syrian jet fighters have launched a series of aerial strikes against the strongholds of foreign-sponsored militants in the northwestern province of Idlib, killing and injuring a number of Takfiris and injuring many more, Press TV reports.
A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Syrian military aircraft pounded a terrorist hideout in the village of Kafr Eweid in Idlib, located roughly 300 kilometers (186 miles) north of the capital, Damascus, on Friday. An unspecified number of militants were killed in the attacks.
Similar aerial attacks were also carried out in the town of Abu al-Duhur, located about 45 kilometers (27 miles) southeast of Aleppo, as well as the villages of al-Majas, Hmeimat al-Daer, Sahm al-Dabshi and al-Habeit in Idlib Province. Syrian military aircraft also conducted a number of sorties over the strategic al-Jisel oil fields in the central province of Homs and near the ancient city of Palmyra, which was overran by ISIL militants last month.

Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force Brigadier General Esmayeel Qa’ani said ISIL has been created by the US and Israel to divide and destroy Muslim states.
The attack was ordered by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu working with King Abdullah II of Jordan during meetings in Amman, Jordan in March 2015. There a secret protocol was agreed upon between Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Israel to systematically target ethnic groups across Lebanon and Syria. The Druze are at the top of the list.
The Druze had been given an ultimatum, rise against the Damascus government or pay the consequences. The “cleansing” of al Louz is the result. From an ARA news story:
