In Assad’s heartland, villagers see Russians as saviours — The village of Jebleh is a good place for plane-spotters. Last week dozens of Russian fighter-bombers - Sukhoi Su-24s, 25s and 35s - took off from the Bassel al-Assad airbase less than a mile away, roaring through the cloudy autumn skies towards their targets in Syria's north and east.
