Default Syrian Conflict

Quote:
The terrorist groups said on their social media pages that Kafi Fahd and Abu Libia from the so-called "Asifet al-Hazm Battalion" and the leader of "Sayyed al-Shuhadaa Hamzeh Battalion", nicknamed as Abu Hamza, were killed during clashes in the Northern countryside of Lattakia.

Earlier reports said the Russian fighter jets' air raids on the terrorist positions across the coastal province of Lattakia left at least 40 militants dead, including Basel Zimmo (Abu Hamza) a senior commander known as the King of US TOW antitank missiles.

Syrian army advance


Anyway, nice to see the air force doing good over there

No offense to my American friends here, I know your government likes those "rebels", on the off chance our ground forces have to go to battle there, the less "Kings of TOWs" are alive there, the better. I hope, after this, all the "rebels" understand that picking up the munitions dropped by USA means Russian pilots will then be dropping you a present too, only a much less pleasant one
