DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:30 A.M.) – At least 57 Syrians were killed after an American airstrike struck a mosque in the rebel-held village of Al-Jinah on the provincial border between Idlib and Aleppo on Thursday evening. 90 more were injured and the death toll is expected to rise overnight, local activists said. Another report puts the death toll at around 75 already.

Although early reports blamed the Russian Air Force, photos from the site revealed that the missile was manufactured in the US, suggesting Washington was to blame for the massacre.

Some 300 people, mostly civilians, were present inside the Al-Jinah mosque as it was abruptly hit during prayer time by an airstrike, burying many beneath the rubble.

It was not immediately clear why the United States Airforce carried out the massacre; however, another report said dozens of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) fighters were present. HTS was recently labeled a terrorist organization by the US.

Recently, 17 adolescents were killed by US airstrike at a desert village south of Raqqa, according to a local monitor and Syrian state media.

UPDATE: The United States (CENTCOM) has taken responsbility for the airstrike, stating it killed a gathering of Al-Qaeda militants on March 16 in the village of Al-Jinah.

Seems that the same style of “activists” that called Obama to launch a WW3 against Russia will soon call Russia or China to launch a WW3 against USA 😉 Now any time US will hit Qaeda, they will whine US kill civilians… Thus, if Soros puts money in to make big noise, I bet he’ll likely find himself in much more troubles than his campaigns against Syria. Personally, was I the leader of any country Soros does one of his campaigns against, he’d really be in biggest troubles than he think he may find himself. I have serious principles but… Read more »
