It is impossible to tolerate the situation in Syria’s Idlib province indefinitely, it is necessary to separate the armed opposition from terrorists, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

The Russian Foreign Minister stressed during his speech at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO) that “there is no place for terrorists in Syria, and the Syrian government has every right to seek their liquidation on its territory.”

“We are now taking the most active effort, together with our Turkish colleagues, together with the Syrian government, and with the Iranians as participants in the Astana format, to split the armed normal opposition forces from the terrorists ‘on the ground,'” Lavrov said.

On August 25, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said that terrorists of the Tahrir al-Sham group (affiliated with the Jabhat Nusra* terror organization, banned in Russia) were preparing a provocation in Syria’s western Idlib province to accuse Syrian government forces of using chemical weapons against civilians.

Earlier in August, the UK, the US and France said that they “will respond appropriately to any further use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime.”

They are your Muslim brothers, they’re even all Muslim-Brotherhood offshoot. Don’t you know that when rabid jihadists can’t invade the civilised Dar al-Kuffar, they cannibalise the miserable House of Islam? Hey, your Muhammad created these brainwashed mass murderers. Stop blaming your own responsibilities! Jihad comes from YOU, not from the zios, not from the crusaders. And we don’t use human-shields like YOUR Hezbollah did in 2006, shooting rockets towards Israel from UN-protected facilities or YOUR Hamas does, storing explosives in schools or having their HQ in a bunker under Gaza’s hospital. What despicable hypocrite you are! Your taqiyya and kitman… Read more »
