BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – A Russian soldier was killed a few days ago in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate after the Turkish-backed rebels fired an anti-tank guided missile from the demilitarized zone.

According to reports, the Russian soldier Maxim Pletnev was killed by a Jaysh Al-Izza ATGM team near the small town of Massasneh in northern Hama.

Pletnev was reportedly killed on January 31st while on duty near the demilitarized zone along the Hama-Idlib axis.

The demilitarized zone is supposed to be absent of any violence; however, since its inception on September 17th, this area has witnessed an increase in hostilities between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Turkish-backed rebels.

Rest in peace, Maxim. God bless you and Russia for helping protect Syria, especially its religious and ethnic minorities, from jihadi terrorists.
