BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The Turkish authorities arrested three people for paying tribute to the late Syrian military officer, Major General Issam Zahreddine, in the Hatay Province, the ABC Gazetsi reported yesterday.

According to the report, the three people responsible for the memorial service commemorating General Zahreddine in the Turkish town of Defne were arrested and charged with “making propaganda.”

The Turkish authorities have stated that this case is confidential and will not release details.

General Issam Zahreddine was killed on October 18th while fighting the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) in the Deir Ezzor Governorate – he was 56 years old.

In fact, Assad did trust Erdogan once, when they signed a free-trade/free border-crossing agreement between Turkey and Syria.
This greatly helped to smuggle jihadists, mercenaries and shitload of weaponst to start the proxy-war against Syria.

Since about 1453, the Turks were heroically fighting against children, elderly, and dead people, so nothing new here at all.
