Again these are not ISIS but US/Zionist Rapid Intervention forces masqueraded as ISIS.

Probably they were airlifted to that point. It coincides with the so called conference organized by the US for the so called anti-terror coalition which includes everybodybexcept, Syria, Russia and Iran. It also coincides with the Geneva talks where Stefan de Mistura is absent which means a lot.

You should use the Russian word for truth : “Pravda” : they were saying great truth during the Soviet era, i.e. “no, there is no danger in Chernobyl, look, all children are parading, the explosion had no consequences”.

RIP. Murdering 4 middle aged guards is the only “heroism” IS can still do.

Major General Mohammad Sultan, the commander of the Second Battalion in Baath Brigades Fifth Corps was also murdered there together with four comrades of his battalion.
Yes, it seems that the empire currently strikes back at all fronts according to the new “trumped” plan to defeat not only Daesh, which is not so new but an old Mossad manual now tabled by the DoD as a magical wand.
However, nobody will really miss Steffan de Basura at any occasion as he never had any capacity to negociate anything.
