Su-34s of the Russian Aerospace Forces struck an oil refinery, situated on ISIS-controlled territory near the village of Ras al-Ain, in the al-Hasakah province. The strikes caused a large fire to break out in the factory. Russian warplanes have reportedly destroyed a military camp of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham near the village of Horsh Tal Touna in rural Idlib and ISIS’ training camp in the Al-‘Arfi District of the Deir Ezzor city.

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Tuesday that the timeline of not delivering airstrikes against armed groups that have not joined the cessation of hostilities in Syria will run out this week. Then those who have not joined the ceasefire will become a legitimate target regardless of the fact if they are in a terrorist list or not.

According to Russia’s Foreign Minister, the Russian military force remaining in Syria after a partial withdrawal is sufficient to counter terrorist threats remaining in the Arab country. Earlier this month, Russia proposed to the US to conduct joint air operations against al-Nusra, ISIS and other groups ignoring ceasefire in Syria. The US has rejected the proposal.

On June 1, a large convoy of the Syrian Arab Army reinforcements arrived to the city of Aleppo. The convoy reportedly included units of the SAA’s 4th Mechanized Division, the National Defense Forces and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath. These units strengthened the government forces that concentrated in order to conduct a military operation in the ‘Anadan Plain, northwest to Aleppo City.

      You realize that Tom is either desperate for a check – remember the comments on the lost Malaysian jet and the Ukrainian shoot-down – or he is certifiable nuts. He is a Fox whore so he is fed what to say and hopes that whatever is left of his pedigree will sell. All of Hannity’s “guests” have to know less then him or he is challenged which implies right off that McInerney is or is playing dumber than dirt. Tom was once a hell of a fighter pilot but now its impossible to understand what happened – yea people change.

      • OKAY EXPLAIN THESE THEN. March 22nd, 2016 The US Gov’t Finally Admits That The People They Armed In Syria Have Committed Genocide

        State Department is legally mandated by Congress to determine whether Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) persecution of minorities in Iraq and Syria – Christians, Yazidis, Sunni Kurds and Shiite Muslims – constitutes genocide.“What is happening in Iraq and Syria is a deliberate, systematic targeting of religious and ethnic minorities. Today, the House unanimously voted to call ISIS’s atrocities what they are: a genocide. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin)

          That’s fine Lincoln and I am sure there are numerous Genocides when taken over the timeline of the past 20 years that we have missed and who did them would be a matrix of confusion as we now know it anyway. Point is when you scream Genocide to gain political backing so you can go and bomb indiscriminately creating a new Genocide to someone else I see no progress. The Donald finally said something useful today and I am sure he does not know what it means but he was keen enough to drop it – that is set up collection points “over-there” not here and what he implied (I think) is that these camps need to be of the scale that can take on and sustain the millions. This is a good idea and with today’s tech and off the shelf it could be workable but would require people / governments to host, build, collect support, and sustain large cities of refugees.

          • I screamed nothing, and only posted a read! Wow, snowflake! This explains allot right here.
