Russia's Air Power Bombing Al-Nusra Terrorists North of Aleppo City

Today, the Russian Aerospace Forces have reportedly delivered some 30 air stikes on the targets belonging to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) ad the group’s allies near the Handarat refugee camp, located north of Aleppo city.

The air strikes were made in supprot of operations of the Syrian Army and Liwa al-Quds (a Palestinian pro-government militia) against the terrorists in the area. Pro-government sources report that at least 20 terrorists, 3 vehicles equipped with machine guns were destroyed by the Russian air power.

Meanwhile, pro-militant sources argue that the “regime forces” have lost over 20 soldiers in attempts to advance on the “oppositon” positions inside and outside the camp.

The Syrian government forces took control of the Handarat refugee camp on Sunday and were pushed to retreat from it on Sunday under the pressure of joint terrorist forces. Last night, the Syrian army and Liwa al-Quds received reinforcements from other areas of Aleppo and now they are preparing for a new push to take control of this strategic cite.

30 air strikes for killing 20 terrorists and destroying 3 vehicles equipped with machine guns…
It seems highly disadvantageous.

WE’ll try hard to hit more with less ordinance.

haven’t you really anything more pertinent to say? all you people sound like broken records since months, and you don’t seem to be able to state anything but “whatever Russia does is wrong”.

This back and forth might actually be good so as to deplete the ISIS resources. In fact, why not let them believe that they can do some easy gains and let the terrorists throw a lot of people into the fight and when they are out in the open, call in the Russian Air force and bomb them into dust.

To contain ISIS and eradicate them will take more than X number of airstrkes. To deal with Syria will need three sessions with Dr. Phil. The chaos of the “Muddled East ” is beyond any political or military solution that has plagued armies since Alexander the Great. Feudal rift mixed with religious zelots has been the curse of any attempt to bring any form of peace ,so to the Victor remains the spoils and Excedrin Headache # 24 .
