BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – In its ongoing bombardment campaign against militant forces in northern Hama and southern Idlib Governorates, The Russian Aerospace Forces have targeted a command base belonging to Turkish-backed rebels, killing and wounding nearly 100 fighters as a result.

Today, Russian airpower engaged a Faylaq al-Sham headquarters base in the area of Tal Mardiqh in southern Idlib with a number of precision strikes.

In addition to completely destroying the command base, the airstrike also killed fourteen fighters belonging to the militant group and wounded another 50.

With the knowledge that the Russian Aersopace Forces are now also attacking non-Al-Qaeda affiliated militant groups throughout northern Hama and southern Idlib, it can be said that Russian airpower is expanding the parameters of its bombing campaign to completely suppress the offensive capabilities of all rebel factions in northwest Syria.

This is fully expected and justified after the events of the past weeks.
the de-confliction zones are to prepare the paths to peace.
They are not meant as an opportunity for the US/NATO proxy terror gangs to rearm and plan for more terror.

Russia has said NO and means it.

Turkey stop finance to some of thesr former back groups. So its likely that Russia wants to show to all groups in Iblid that they REALY mean biznis there.

No good idea if Turkey really still backs these rebels. The Kurds and so-called-Kurds in East Syria are the bigger problem now, and Turkey’s support is needed.

But I guess it should mean Ex-Turkey-backed rebels or not backed by the State of Turkey?! I thought Russia, Turkey and Iran have a deal to finally clean up the mess in Idlib.

Why seeing Kurds as a problem? They don’t reclaim secession as Iraqi Kurds and their claims are more than justified.
Now, as SDF isn’t YPG, an arrangement with PYD is more than feasible, YPG can slam the SDF’s door, case closed with US interference!

Turkey, Israel, America and the great w***e, NATO, hope to occupy Syria forever and rape it of her resources.
Russia, finally and hopefully, will not let this dangerous pipe dream happen.

Mongolia in fact… Well, Mongolia is near twice as big as Turkey and really underpopulated (3.1M) thus I don’t think they’d like, being 50% Buddhist and 39% Atheist that they’d like to invite 80M Turks, 82% of ’em being Muslim…
The fact is we don’t want Turkey in the EU too. Was it the case, they’d be in for a while. I don’t get why they still knock the door : this is culturally not feasible, this is obvious…
Russia could fit, so could Québec, maybe even Israel but Turkey, no, h**l NO! Turkey would need serious de-islamisation first.
