Russia: Weapon Supplies for al-Nusra Front Arrive from Turkey Daily

Head of the Russian General Staff, Lt. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy, said Friday that trucks carrying weapons for al-Nusra militants arrive in Syria from Turkey on a daily basis. The supplies allow al-Nusra to operate actively and continue local attacks.

Rudskoy added in Friday’s press briefing that al-Nusra’s activity hinders the fight against ISIS in Syria.

“The never-ending flow of large trucks from Turkey carrying weapons and ammunition crosses the Turkish-Syrian border. This constant feed of live forces and weapons allows terrorists from the Nusra Front to continue their provocative shelling and make advances on Syrian government forces, which diminishes [government military] activity against Islamic State terrorists in other areas,” the Russian media cites Rudskoy’s statement.

According to Rudskoy, heaviest clashes are centered around areas where the al-Qaeda affiliated al-Nusra Front is active and the US knows this.

“Everyone knows, and our US partners admit that the biggest hot spots of active military operations are those parts of the Syrian Republic where the al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorists from the al-Nusra Front run rampant.”

However, the US has refused the Russian idea to conduct joint operations against terrorist in Syria.

The Russian general emphasized that al-Nusra hampers the ceasefire efforts in Northern Syria.

    How long does Russia want to ask or suggest the U.S to cooperate in Syria. Cooperation is possible only if the parties share some common objectives. In Syria, the U.S wants to force a regime change by all means and Russia apparently wants the opposite. Is that so difficult for the Russian deciders to figure it out ??? The U.S made it clear: Align under US Command and nothing else. Therefore it is now time for Russia to stop asking the U.S for cooperation to fight ISIS and others U.S Terror assets . It is starting to be humiliating for Russia supporters.

      Its getting worse then that. Russia just keeps helping them out with more cease fires more talking that they think they can some how co-operate? Russian should end this RIGHT NOW. putin and his dream of being with the zionist club should be stopped NOW. putin should be replaced by a man who will fight and make a commitment to no ceasefires until alnusra and all cia scum are DEAD. Russia COULD certainly do it. Maybe try a little harder to bankrupt them too. putin should be replaced by a man who will sanction usa into bankrupcy. Can it be done? Absolutely. Will it be done? Probably not with mister nice guy putin useless running the show.

        WHoa! Ever heard of maskyrovka.? Rusia needs to perfect its defenses to fend off the first stirke from mad USA Miltary, this is why it play snice guy and offers the olive branch all the time. Russia hates war, but will engage in it if attacked, so let’s brace ourselves for the coming Armageddon..

      Would you not agree that a diplomatic solution is cheaper and less time consuming than a military solution? Thanks to the Russian intervention the Assad regime is as stable as practical given the situation. There are still ongoing operations in Syria so warfare is still an option but given the condition of the Syrian forces, a far riskier and more expensive in both $$$, lives and widening of conflict than a diplomatic solution. Why not try for the cheap easy diplomatic option instead of going straight to the war option and risk losing everything?

      • Boris Kazlov

        That would be nice if diplomacy were a possibility.

    • Boris Kazlov

      mY thoughts exactly.

    So why don’t the Russians bomb those trucks? Need to ask US for permission?

    • james willy

      Absolutely. That is putin for ya. USELESS.

      • Boris Kazlov

        Stop that,please. I am Russian and it enrages me madly, but I have to look past my rage to the ultimate good for Russia and mankind.

        • james willy

          Boris it enrages me too. I just want to see Putin fight back and stop trying to suck up to the monkey. These trucks described here should be bombed as soon as they cross the border. Putin is allowing them into Syria. That is why I insulted Putin. He needs to take off the gloves and finish the job he decided to start last september.
