Aleppo, Syria (4:00 A.M.) – The Russian Air Force recently increased their presence over Aleppo City after the jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) launched a massive offensive inside the southern districts of the provincial capital.

This latest jihadist offensive attempted to lift the three-week long siege that was imposed on the eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo City by the Syrian Armed Forces; it is still ongoing.

In response to this massive offensive, the Russian Air Force has intensified their airstrikes over Aleppo City, targeting the southern districts and villages, as the jihadist rebels mobilize more men to complete their assault.

On Tuesday night, the Russian Air Force continued their aerial campaign, striking the jihadist controlled districts of Al-Ramouseh, Al-‘Amariyah, and Rashiddeen, while the Syrian Army fired several missiles towards the 1070 Al-Hamdaniyah Housing Project.

Russian airstrikes are still ongoing this morning, despite the recent exchange of gunfire near the 1070 Housing Project.

Bigger bombs are required. Much bigger. A large one on Raqqa and Idlib and the war is done.

The comments show that while the terrorists´ supporters whine about the Russians allegedly bombing civilians, the supporters of humanity demand more action. The warped picture these comments draw should be corrected: While The Russian and the Syrian airforces do their best to annihilate the Obamination, they also take care to not to produce “collateral damage”.

Okay…this civil war has been going on for how long? If you haven’t figured out that if you want to live, you should GTFO of Syria? Indiscriminate? Bombs kill, if you want to live – run. No discrimination – just war. Bomb away so Syrians can come back and play another day 😉

Terms like “hammer” and “pound” are overused and appear sensationalist. Aside from sounding impressive, what do they mean? Five sorties? Ten? “Bomb” or “target” are at least as descriptive. “Massive” also depends upon perspective. Several million men attacking the Eastern Front in WWII could be considered massive. A few hundred or thousand men attacking Aleppo might be significant.

this isn’t an accurate weapon, Russia is killing Syrian people with this. Live in Syria then decide if this kills or not
