On Friday afternoon, the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) attempted to retaliate against the Russian Air Force after the latter destroyed their hideouts inside the town of Deir Hanna in the Latakia Governorate’s northeastern countryside.

However, the four grad rockets they fired towards the Bassel Al-Assad International Airport in the Jableh District fell short of their target; this prompted the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to launch a flurry of mortar shells and rockets into Deir Hanna before the Syrian Air Force topped off the Al-Qaeda militants with a powerful series of airstrikes in the aforementioned town.

Jabhat Al-Nusra, Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, and the Free Syrian Army have recently found themselves as the target of the Russian Air Force’s recent airstrikes in the Hama and Idlib Governorates; this aggression has infuriated their financial and military backers from the Gulf countries, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

The Russian Federation has not concerned itself with the opinions of the Arab League countries that spoke-out against the their airstrikes in Syria.

Among those countries protesting Russia’s participation in Syria is the Saudi government – the same government that is currently bombing Yemen daily, killing over 5,000 civilians in three months.

Praise be to God for each pro-Assad government victory. Thank you, God, for helping them to liberate Syria from this horrific seige by terrorists from so many countries – and especially by the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey. God loves Syria and will continue to answer our prayers for its deliverance from this attack!
