This evening, a Russian warship in the Mediterranean launched a long-range cruise missile which landed on the rebel-held town of Al-Qassimyah in the western Aleppo countryside.

According to an Al-Masdar source embedded with the Tiger Forces in northern Aleppo, the coordinates for the target were a large storage building holding U.S. supplied TOW anti-tank missiles.

The Russian military relies heavily on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Tiger Forces to carry out long-range missile attacks and airstrikes – in fact, Major General Suheil al-Hassan himself was said to have instructed tonight’s pinpoint attack, according to the military source.

Meanwhile, the SAA’s Tiger Forces are preparing a ground offensive to capture the southern part of the Al-Mallah farms which are still held by Islamist insurgents, despite some reports to the contrary.

Thats the most important thing for the airforce: To destroy the weapon storages! Then can Turkey deliver so much weapons, they can, but with no efffect in the battles.

KSA has bought 15,000 TOWs in 2014 for 1.1bln$ (gosh! +73k$/missile! Raytheon a*s-raped the saudis! They were sold for 8k5£ in 1984, even with inflation…) Nevertheless, there may be still a lot around… Well, it may be useful to spy on both Turkey and Jordan and have a serious coverage of saudi harbours and airports and maybe jordan or isaeli facilities too. If a stockpile is sent by boat, a board and search could be interesting and if done by aircrafts, the more likely to happen would be flying over Iraq or Egypt/Israel. I bet iraqis would like to intercept… Read more »

So sad the asinine U.S. govt. has to spend large amounts of money to kill innocent Syrians when there are many 1000’s of people living in the streets in Los Angeles alone. Hopefully the American public will get unsheepled and demand its govt. stop becoming by far the world’s greatest terrorist organization.

The number one terrorist victim of the U.S. government is the American public. But the government also uses the tactic of making those who do not rebel somewhat comfortable – for the present. Works for them so far but more people are getting antsy every day.
