Turkish-backed terrorists get Russian-barbecued
Russian warplanes bombed Ahrar al-Sham positions near the border with Turkey on Saturday, according to multiple reports.
Ahrar al-Sham enjoys backing from Saudi Arabia and Turkey, and is one of the largest rebel factions in Syria. The group is considered a terrorist organization by Russia, Syria, Iran, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates.
And unlike other members of the U.N. Security Council (we won’t name names), Russia has a very low tolerance for terrorists.
Earlier this week, Ahrar al-Sham took a few shots at a Russian helicopter — and then awarded themselves medals for their heroic deed.
Russia has now returned the favor.
According to reports, the jihadist group claims that Russia entered Turkish airspace during the raid:
Will a participation trophy make them feel better?
It’s possible that these airstrikes were also targeting “convoys” heading to Latakia, where Russia’s air base is located.
