The Jordanian based “New Syrian Army” alleged on Thursday that the Russian Air Force attacked their positions near the Tanf Border-Crossing in the Homs Governorate.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent, this accusation by the New Syrian Army comes as a surprise to the Russians because they have not conducted any airstrikes near the Iraqi border in over four months.

The New Syrian Army and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have not engaged one another nor are they threatening one another in southeast Homs, despite the fact both forces have a presence in the Syrian Desert.

Russia has yet to issue a response to these allegations; however, U.S. officials expressed their ‘concern’ over the latest airstrikes.

So his queen will be welcomed as a refugee at my place. It may not be a palace, I may not be rich, but I’ve got other qualities more than a woman would like to pay for 🙂

Basicly, guys from the New Syrian Army sign an agreement to not engage in fights again SAA, they’re only supposed to fight Daesh… If it wasn’t a russian strike, SyAAF may have done it but as long as Daesh and al-Nusra+affiliates aren’t eliminated, it would be totally counterproductive to strike any group which fights the terrorists without messing with SAA : it wouldn’t make any sense… It is more likely to be a false flag by a third party… At high altitude, a F-15 can be confused with a Mig-29 or a Flanker or… USA have managed to lay their… Read more »

This was just a warning. Next time they’ll wipe them out with cluster and incendiary bombs…

I’m concerned how very little the US actually know that is real.

Now I’m becoming VERY dubious about this announcement : “4 #RuAF airstrikes w/ cluster bombs killed 2 fighters & wounded 10 from US backed New Syrian Army”… It stinks pure disinformation!!!! And by someone who doesn’t know a s**t about aircrafts and their weapons… So… This armed group is reputed to be small… They lost a lot of guys when a VBIED exploded at their gates in may, their base is in the desert, OK, let’s say that at full, they were about 100, walls of the camp probably made of tires filled with sand as they’e in the desert,… Read more »

Remains of the bomb used : Now look at the a*s of an US Mk8x family retarded tail iron bomb : http://www.hill.af.mil/shared/media/photodb/web/601010-F-0000H-060.jpg Well, the Mk8x serie is modular, you can switch different models of tails : classic, retarded, parachute… It may be something else anyway. For reference : KAB500 guided bomb, tipically used by Su-34: http://militaryedge.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/kab-500l_3.jpg The OFAB series, which are the main russian iron bombs don’t look like having the remaining part too: http://cdn2.img.mundo.sputniknews.com/images/105223/63/1052236389.jpg So doesn’t the more old school RKB series : Well, it may be long to gather enough intel to identify from which model of bomb… Read more »
