BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:15 P.M.) – The US-backed rebels accused the Russian military on Thursday of carrying out airstrikes on their positions in the southeastern countryside of the Rif Dimashq Governorate.

Video footage posted by the pro-opposition Qasioun News Agency was used as “proof” that the Russian military was targeting the rebel forces with cannon-fire in the Badiya Al-Sham area near the Iraqi border-crossing.

In the video footage posted above, a Russian Su-35 fighter jet is seen using cannon fire as a way to scare away the Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces from the area.

Please note: Al-Masdar News cannot confirm the authenticity of this video posted by the pro-opposition news site.
