BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 A.M.) - The Russian Air Force carried out its first airstrikes over the key city of Al-Bab on Sunday, marking the first time during this war that their aircraft have directly aided the Turkish Army.

According to a military source at the Kuweires Airport, a group of Russian Su-24 and Su-34 fighters jets carried out airstrikes over Al-Bab in east Aleppo, resulting in the destruction of several mechanisms that belonged to the so-called "Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham" (ISIS).

Despite Russian air assistance on Sunday, the Turkish Army was unable to maintain control over the Al-Farouq Hospital and Jabal Al-Aqil after the Islamic State terrorists scored a direct hit with their VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device).

The Russian and Turkish governments are currently on good terms for the first time in nearly a year, putting an end to the differences they had over the downing of the Su-24 fighter jet in northern Latakia last year.

It is always good to see good coexistence between states fighting together against a common good. I hope it lasts and improves for the sake of Syria and all its allies without further stabbing in the back of part of Turkey.

Yes. But even if Ru MFA called Gollum about it saying they couldn’t tolerate, Gollum recently said Euphrates Shit was here to overthrow Syrian govt… AKP is nothing else than a MB offshoot and well, it’s more than dubious, except than for some computing, that VKS has to act on the Turkish behalf : THK has more than what they need if they want to do anti-Daesh strikes… Now, you also have : “Turkish Army was unable to maintain control over the Al-Farouq Hospital” => Pretty ineffective if it was dedicated to support Turkish forces, isn’t it?

You could say that EU countries will not be happy or you could say that just now, given that the Syrian project failed, coupled with Killary Clinton losing the US election, coupled with The final and secure burial of Nabucco Pipeline project, the F.UK.US clan is starting to realize their money was on the wrong horse, and are now trying to retrieve their money to bet it to another horse, all the while trying to save face.

Interesting but with the goal of having Gollum cutting the supplies to Idlib, it may not be the best moment to do so… Taking vehicles out doesn’t really influences urban warfare while, if SAA moves south of al-Bab, they may be bigger trouble makers…
