Over the past week [November 26- December 4], Russian aviation has carried out 431 sorties from the Hmeymim airbase and conducted strikes on 1,458 terrorist targets including command centers, training camps, ammunition depots, and strongholds. 12-fuel transfer stations ad 8 terrorist controlled oil fields were also destroyed.

Only in the past 48 hours, the Russian warplanes hit two truck convoys near Aleppo and Raqqa, destroying up to 40 terrorist vehicles modified to transport oil products.

The US is reportedly establishing an airbase in northeastern Syria. The forces deployed there should assist to the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF)”, de facto Syrian Kurds, to make gains in Syria. The airbase is located southeast of the town of Rimelan – one of the YPG’s main strongholds and largest arms and ammunition depots. That US unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) had already flown from the facility to test it. The report also said that two helicopter landed eight US military specialists at the airport on November 24.

At the end of October, the U.S. was sending about 50 special operators to Northern Syria. Then, in December, President Obama ordered the deployment of additional special operations forces to both Iraq and Syria.

The Turkish army reportedly invaded the Syrian territory and took control of the hill Tal Ziyab. Troops crossed the border accompanied by bulldozers to build fortifications. Also, 3 battle tanks, 2 armored infantry fighting vehicles and several SUVs were deployed there.

Considering the location of Tal Ziyab, Turkey wants to cover the smuggling route of the Syrian oil which is taken out of the ISIS-controlled Raqqa. It seems that Ankara has decided to escalate the situation further after the Ministry of Defense of Russia were released pictures and videos of oil delivery convoys at the border between Syria and Turkey.

    Any indication if Russia will bomb Turkish forces inside Syrian territory?

    Who rapes little girls, kills their mothers and dads? Who forces their personal beliefs on others, then saws their heads off anyway? Who considers Jews, Alawites, Druze,Yazidis, Christians, and Shiite infidels and apostates? Come on now, tell us who you really are. You came out of your god’s vagina, you holy and pure ones. You need to be reminded to pray 5 times a day. Allah doesn’t live inside you 24/7, does he? While you rape, how do you feel? Love or hate. You nomad demons of the sand, who only plunder, kill, rape, and call it earning a living. You are afraid of a womans face, because you see it as a half. It’s ugly to you in your eyes. You can’t hold an intelligent conversation unless there’s a weapon in your hand. How is that king Saud working out for you? Salafistic Wahabbism steeped in sharia worship of beheadings, stonings, chopping other human body parts, then showing yourself as the work of Allah. You, who recruit then force little children to prepare themselves for suicidal sacrafice for your personal gains. Giddy up Jihadist, giddy up.
