BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:40 A.M.) – Russia has accused Turkestani and Uzbek jihadists in northwestern Syria of carrying out the drone attack on the Hmaymim Military Airbase recently.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, Turkestani and Uzbek members of a jihadist group in the southwestern Idlib city of Jisr Al-Shughour were responsible for carrying out this drone attack on the Hmaymim Airport.

Jisr Al-Shughour currently has a large presence of foreign fighters from the Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP), which is a jihadist group loyal to Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

According to a Syrian military source in Damascus, the Russian Aerospace Forces will likely launch retaliatory airstrikes over the Jisr Al-Shughour District of Idlib soon.

Despite Turkey’s presence in the Jisr Al-Shughour District, the jihadist rebels in the area have repeatedly violated the ceasefire deal that was established at the Astana Peace Conference.

Furthermore, the jihadist rebels have used an illegal Turkish observation post in the northeastern countryside of Latakia to carry out attacks against the Syrian government forces in the area.

While Russia and Turkey do have a non-aggression agreement in Syria, the Russian Aerospace Forces will not hesitate to target jihadist groups that are active near the Turkish military’s front-lines, as the safety of their troops is paramount.

TIP = Turkestan ISLAMIC Party.
I think that if these were “Zio” for Zionist, Russia would be pretty furious at Israel, wouldn’t they?

I agree with you here on Turkmenistan being a Turkish Merdogan proxy. Putin. deeply must know how vile and treacherous the two-faced Turks are, but he needs to secure the Bosphorous Straits for now…..then, after the Syrian crisis, we’ll see how far Merdogan wants to push his Ottoman Empire 2.0 thing.
