Russian Foreign Ministry said the Russian embassy in Damascus was shelled, today, from a nearby districts controlled by militant groups.

The Embassy’s residential complex was partially damaged in the attack. No casualties reported.

Two other mortar shells landed near the embassy building.

“According to reports, the shelling came from the Jobar neighborhood of Damascus, which is under control of the terrorist groups Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and Failak ar-Rahman,” the ministry said.

Moscow said the shelling is “result of the actions of those who, like the US and some of its allies, provoke the continued bloodshed in Syria and flirt with militants and extremists of all flavors”, vowing to take “all necessary measures” to restore peace and security to Syria.

Tensions between Russia and the US have escalated recently, with each accusing the other of derailing the ceasefire.

Please use Syrian rebels or terrorists and NOT Islamists. They have nothing to do with Islam. Don’t do as western media does to our noble religion. Please.

They ARE ISLAMISTS… I don’t see any nobility in this religion since I red koran and haddiths : it simply calls to either slaughter or racket all those who don’t believe in it!
All the s**t they are doing is in your books!

. Now just look how it is inconsistent and violent :
S.2.v.62
Believers, those who follow the Jewish Faith, Sabaeans, and Christians – whoever believes in God and the Last Day and does what is right – shall have nothing to fear or regret
S.3.85 :
He that follows a religion other than Islam, it will not (be accepted from)/save him and in the world to come he will surely be among the lost
S9:29
Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax
Bukhari 84.57
“He who leaves the religion of Islam, kill him.”

Islamism = Islam that has gone politics. These mofos are acting to enforce their belief in their fairy tales to anyone, it’s the perfect definition of islamism. Now, dude, for me you can believe in whatever you want as long as you don’t try to enforce it to anyone and you don’t brainwash children into it.

Kirby is a retired rear admiral and as a military, was dedicated to DoD public affairs. Since he retired from the Navy, he became the spokesperson for the DoS. He simply tells what he’s told to say by Kerry, you know…

“Peace and security” is quote from 1 Thessalonians Ch.V… And it’s not a good sin at all when a powerful country says it : you can expect serious destructions… Those who decided to shell Russian embassy can expect a very very violent reaction and will curse the day they they committed this folly.

The punishment for attacking the Russian embassy will be ‘measured ‘ , I am sure.
