The al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group, Hurras al-Din, has released a video showing the moment of an attack on a Russian position near the town of Ain Issa in the northern Syrian province of Raqqa. The attack took place on December 31-January 1 and involved a suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device. The attack was repelled by Russian troops deployed in the area and did not cause any casualties among the Russina side.
The interesting fact is that the involved terrorist group, Hurras al-Din, is headquartered in the militant-held part of Greater Idlib, under a direct protection of the Turkish military. The usage of Idlib-based terrorists against Russian troops based in the north of the country may become a new trend in the Turkish strategy in the region.
