As a result of the strikes, there were strong fires, there are dead among the representatives of the so-called Syrian armed opposition.

Explosions were also heard in the al-Eraser in the countryside of Aleppo.

The Tarkhin refinery is located south of the city of Jarablus in the northern part of Aleppo province, which is dominated by the militants of the "Syrian National Army", created with the support of Turkey.

According to other sources, the operation was carried out jointly by the Russian group of troops in the Arab Republic and the Syrian army. It is alleged that first the SAR Armed Forces launched Tochka-U missiles to defeat the enemy, after which the Russian military hit several Iskanders from the Khmeimim air base.
