US weapons used to target Russians in Syria: Report

from Press TV:

New evidence strongly suggests that US-backed militants in Syria are using American weapons to target senior Russian military officials in the country, a new report says.

The so-called Free Syrian Army has recently released video footage showing a laser-guided BGM-71 TOWs anti-tank missile being fired at a rooftop where unidentified military personnel had gathered, according to the Daily Beast.

The video identified the targets as Russian officers but did not disclose the exact location of the attack apart from noting that it was somewhere near Syria’s coast.

The building is believed to be located in the Syrian coastal city of Latakia, where Russia has constructed forward operating bases and airfields to carry out airstrikes and artillery shelling against Daesh (ISIL) at the request of President Bashar al-Assad’s government.

The report cited open-source intelligence and reporting from Syrian opposition, Turkish, and Russian sources as evidence that at least one high-ranking Russian military official has been killed since the beginning of Moscow’s aerial campaign in the Arab country in late September, last year.

About an hour after the video was first released, TASS news agency reported that a Russian officer who had been advising the Syrian army had indeed been killed in Syria as a result of a Daesh mortar attack on a military garrison.

A couple of hours later, an opposition group known as the Revolutionary Forces of Syria pinpointed the rooftop attack to the Jabal al-Akrad mountain region of Salma in northern Latakia, where recently the Syrian army scored a major victory against terrorists.

    Russia answered that with more than 900 airstrikes in just 3 days.

    The US airbags called it “Carpet Bombing”.

    I call it a “measured response”.

    Properly measured and liberally applied to the sore spot.

    Stick the elephant in the toe-nail with a pin prick, and get stomped on like crazy.

    Someday, the world will put an end to “Islam” with all the nukes that are needed to put an end to it once and for all.

      “Someday, the world will put an end to “Islam” with all the nukes that are needed to put an end to it once and for all.”

      Maybe that is why so many of them are bugging out to the US and the EU? Problem is, why are they being let in? It sure as hell is not for the benefit of any of the countries taking them in. Add to that, why are the Turks allowing them to pass through their country? Turks despise Arabs and have for centuries. Now, all of a sudden, they allow them into their country? Something smells to high heaven on this and the MSM silence is thunderous.

    Wonder where they are getting their intelligence on the location of the Russian officers?
    Langley perhaps?
