DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:10 P.M.) – An outpost for the Syrian forces near Afrin was hit by an airstrike conducted by a Turkish jet killing six fighters – including a colonel – and injuring two others.

According to sources, the aerial bombardment struck a gathering for the pro-government fighters stationed along the road linking Afrin to Nubl an al-Zahraa towns.

The road is extensively used by thousands of civilians who fled the battles in Afrin, particularly after the Turkish-backed militants managed to entirely seize the city.

Last week, a Turkish airstrike killed 8 fighters from the Syrian Popular Forces at al-Ziyarah crossing.

As I told in the previous days: Putin SOLD Northern Syria to wannabe sultan erdogan (lower case intended), and what is Assad doing? N-O-T-H-I-N-G. One question arises: who REALLY rules Syria?

Abdullah ibn saba (a so-called jewish revert) was the first person to show reverence to Ali. He is considered a ghulat by Shianists but by supporting Ghulat Bashar dog, Iran has proved that Abdullah ibn sabah was ultimately a shia.
