BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:25 P.M.) – An entire armored regiment of the Free Syrian Army officially graduated in northern Aleppo today following months of training and equipment acquisition by the aid of outside powers.

The armored regiment in question belongs to the Hamza Division, a powerful sub-faction of the Free Syrian Army, which – trained and equipped by both Turkey and the United States – continues to expand its ranks.

According to opposition sources, some fifteen hundred (1,500) Free Syrian Army fighters graduated following the completion of their training and the arrival of new military equipment – including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and gun-trucks – to outfit their formation.

The ceremony, which started several days ago, took place in the north Aleppo town of al-Bab, a major stronghold for Turkey-led militant groups which occupy the region.

The Hamza Division is part of the newly-raised so-called ‘Syrian National Army’ – the opposition government’s attempt to create a face-value legitimate fighting force in Syria.

The Syrian people don’t care what Mr. Putin has to say in that matter, because the Syrian people will have to take the damage and not just the Syrian people as well the people of Iraq, Turkey and the Lebanon, at least.
So keep your nukes Mr. Igor and if you really want to use those drop those somewhere in Russia. Thank you and have a good day.

Putin said “I hope we won’t have to use nuclear bombs” and made a typical Russian smile meaning he was joking.

As I have nuclear credentials, believe me, anyone taking it lightly is good for sanatorium!

“use 1 times tactical nuke and will be peace immedieately. nuke fsa!”
=> And there’ll be fallouts on Syrian population and total isolation from Russia which will lose any of the huge support they gained worldwide, especially in the west. Nukes shall only be used if you’re back to the wall, these are not just bombs but bigger!

It’s just a theater for Western media. Real fighters do not show their strength or weapons, because they would prepare for a moment of surprise.

They don’t destroy then because that zone is under the protection of turkey with Russia’s understanding. Not a de-escalation zone but a Turkish controled zone.
