Russia conducted massive airstrike in Syria?

Russian Air Force made this night sleepless for militants of the so-called “Islamic State” (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS) in eastern Hama countryside launching intensive airstrikes on their positions in the region.

Among the targets of heavy bombardment are villages of Suha, Al-Barghouthiyah, Abu Hananyah, Abu Habibat and Hamad Omar. All of them are situated east of Salamiyah city.

Airstrikes come as a preparation for the upcoming assault Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is planning to begin at dawn on Thursday morning.
Ok this is weird.  I've read elsewhere that the Kurds were trying to cut off the terrorist supply lines and now this?

Are we seeing enhanced cooperation in Syria between the US, Russia/Iran/Syria and the Kurds in the drive to kill ISIS?

If so then that's the first bit of good news to come out of that conflict in the last few months.  I don't get the hatred for Russia, do understand the hatred for Iran-but in this case the enemy of my enemy is still my enemy....but we can prioritize , the most puzzling piece would be the Kurdish angle.

IF this is true then Turkey is really marginalizing themselves.  They plotted and planned but its all falling down around them.  I wonder what the Turkish President is thinking right now.
