Bashar Suleiman was an Alawite from the Hama countryside. He was conscripted at the start of the war & served for more than 8 years. After being released he couldn’t feed his family, so a few days ago he reenlisted.

Following the ISIS attack, Russian warplanes launched more than 20 air raids on of the ISIS hideouts in the Syrian al-Rusafa.
SAA soldiers, supported by helicopters of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS), are repeatedly targeting ISIS cells in the Syrian desert.
Fight against ISIS spread in Central Syria is not likely nearing its end, as deadly terrorist attacks are carried out on a regular basis in this region. However, joint efforts led to the significant containment of the terrorist group’s activity.
