The Russian fighter jets, deployed to Humeimim Airbase in Lattakia, have launched reconnaissance flights over terrorists' positions in four provinces to collect fresh information about militants' movements, military sources said Sunday.
"The air traffic at the nearby Humeimim Military Airbase has exponentially increased, as a large number of the planes take off throughout the day," the sources said, adding, "The Russian Air Force has already begun reconnaissance flights over several terrorist-controlled territories in rural Lattakia, Idlib, Aleppo and Hama.

"The Russian Air Force is expected to resume their large-scale aerial campaign over Syria on May 25th," the sources said.
