The missile strike reportedly prevented the terrorists from regrouping and boosting their positions near Deir Ezzor.
Wonderful news to show the headchoppers that the reach of the good is long!
Uh huh….. are you just showing off or is this a gentle reminder to those folk in the SCC who are trying so desperately to make another war?
I think they are just killing terrorists…and thwarting Zionist plots.
Seriously? They’ve got airplanes on the spot. So don’t give me that.
“Dozens of terrorists were killed and ISIS command posts, a communications center, a facility repairing terrorists’ armored vehicles, arms and ammunition depots were destroyed, the ministry said.” —————– I wonder, is Tillerson going to do a Kerry and weep his crocodile tears in the UN for the poor Syria mothers who just wanted some democracy for their children?
Or perhaps Dear Nikki will give us her outrage?
Syria has virtually vanished from MSM news, they have new targets now DPRK & Myanmar, the CIA really are drumming up support for a war on Myanmar.
You have it ! All of these “protesters” in London , Moscow , Indonesia etc protesting ” Stop killing Muslims ” in Myanmar , are much too organized , some real money backing this new propaganda attack on an innocent nation .
Yep.Exactly…Syria fades away and new Boogy Men are brought into play.
Is it just me, or do they seem to miss less than the USN? Actually I just remembered that the USN wrecked two of their frigates by sailing into cargo ships, so I think I’ve answered my own question.
