Damascus, Syria – The bodies of 94 fallen soldiers were retrieved from the infamous Minnigh Airbase in the northern countryside of Aleppo and were transported to Tishreen Military Hospital in Damascus thanks to the local efforts of the populace of Nubbol and Zahraa and the coordination between the YPG and the Syrian government.
Mohammad Abu Moteem, one of those who worked on the affair, informed Syrian newspaper Khat Tammas, “After coordinating with the Kurds, we headed to the area of Minnigh Airbase with Alaa, a surviving veteran of the airport and began our searching and digging operations as directed by Alaa finding three graves.”
“The first grave was by the main entrant to the airport, the second was between the water storage and the electricity storage, and the third was adjacent to the runway.”
Mohammad adds, “After hours of painstaking work that lasted several days, we were able to retrieve the bodies of 94 martyrs from the Syrian Army who were killed protecting the airport and buried inside it due to the militant siege of Minnigh.” The men came from all Syrian provinces as their papers and ID cards suggest. Some corpses were unidentified die to the lack of any personal documentation.
The airport is located 35 km north of Aleppo city adjacent to the town of Minnigh. It was subjected to a brutal siege that lasted over 250 days in which militants launched dozens of attacks against the airbase. Hundreds of jihadists were killed attempting to breach the airport’s gates.
Six VBIEDs struck the tiny airport with the last one being a BMP loaded with six tons of explosives followed by a violent assault that lasted 70 hours. The leader of the mentioned attack was the infamous Islamic State commander and Minister of War Abu Omar Al-Shishani. Alongside ISIS fought the moderate western-backed rebels of Liwa’ Al-Fateh, Liwa’ Al-Tawhid, Liwa’ Asifat Al-Shamal, Liwa’ Suyouf Al-Sham, Barraq Brigades and dozens of other FSA-affiliated brigades.

Syrians must never forget what USA did to Syrians, never. After the war, Syrians must sue USA.

USA has a secondary role, the main ones to be sued are KSA, Qatar and especially Turkey. The USA action about training shithadists was NEVER endorsed by the House. Kerry himself, although he didn’t knew s.o. was recording, said that what they were doing was illegal [according to US laws!]. Using the JASTA law, both the Syrian state and the families of victims can HIGHLY consider suing the crooked politicians who promoted these “black ops” not only at the ICC but also in front of US courts! But well, if Clinton gets elected, things are also very likely to get… Read more »

Trump should hand over the corrupt elite to Syria, so the Syrians can decide what to do with those war criminals.

You’re a goyim too, so am I! And for you I’m also a kuffar.
In case you wouldn’t know, the term goyim means “non-Jew”. LOL.
Proud to be either “goyim” AND “kuffar”
