That was foreseeable. I was expecting the moment when SAA will be in contact with the turkish backed terrorists.
In the same time russian warplanes killed 3 turkish soldiers and hurted 11.
An error they said.
Coincidence?

Do the Turk mercenaries think their masters own the streets in northern Syria? Or do they want to drag Turkey into a war with Syria?

“Or do they want to drag Turkey into a war with Syria?”
=> That’s what they want. They think their master is Allah. Thus, Allah meaning ‘God’, which God is it? According to their behaviour, I’d say either Ubal (Baal as Moon-God. Ubal is the god of the Ka’aba during pre-Islamic era) or Moloch as the God of Abraham is not into sacrificing humans, especially children, as al-Zinki does…
IS is visibly more into Moloch as they have burnt people alive.

You know me and it is a just to know: The word “Allah” itself not only had been used by Jesus Christ himself but also now you can find it in the New Testament, not the translated ones you have access to but in the original versions which are still available. “Aramaic Bible”.

Allah in Arabic = الله Allah in Aramaic = ܐܠܗܗ Just… Read more »

El ejercito Sirio está en todo su derecho de expulsar a terroristas y mercenarios extranjeros de su territorio,… Estos mercenarios han cubierto la retirada de ISIS de Dair-Qaq hacia Al-Bab ya que el ejercito Sirio avanzaba persiguiendo a terroristas de ISIS… Vean el mapa y la carretera.

ISIS ya le llega su fin, los mas peligrosos son los mercenarios que reciben financiamiento directo del gobierno Turco, no les importa la vida de sus compatriotas, son traidores a su nación.
