BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:55 P.M.) – Not long after the first transportation convoy reached Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, a group of jihadist rebels opened fire on the second batch of buses attempting to reach these besieged Shi’i towns in the Idlib Governorate.

According to activists in besieged Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya, the second batch of buses was targeted by jihadist rebels as they were driving down the road to the towns – the fate of the bus drivers is still unknown.

As a result of this attack by jihadist rebels, the buses in Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya were told to remain in the towns until further notice due to security concerns posed by the militant groups in the Idlib Governorate.

The random attack by jihadists in the Idlib Governorate today will likely delay the transport of civilians and militants in the eastern pocket of Aleppo.

More details to come….

Neither would I!
In fact, I’m surprised that thy didn’t let the bus arrive only to attack when these go out of the town, filled with alleged Shias…

The US does not want the terrorists and their families in East Aleppo to be removed. They are far more use for the US Empire building as pawns in Aleppo.

Daeshbag.
Talking about frogs (no pun intended 🙂 , )do you recall when Sec of State Madeline Albright said ” its not fair that Russia has so many resources “?
The goal of the US Empire has always been to steal them. They took a lot via their proxy Oligarchs in the 90’s but they want more now to bail out the US debt interest.

How long will it be though until the US Empire collapses under its own hubris ?
