In late January, jihadists, particularly al-Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, reinforced their positions in Aleppo, which is close to the Syria-Turkey border.

Last week, the Syrian army managed to cut off terrorists’ supply routes from Turkey in northern Aleppo. The troops, with support from the local militias, broke through the sieges in the towns of Nubl and Zahraa. Now the government army aims to gain control of the Syria-Turkey border.

Earlier in the day, the governor of the Latakia province said that the Syrian army’s latest successes in the counterterrorism fight are a testament to the effectiveness of its cooperation with the Russian Aerospace Forces.

On September 30, 2015, Russia launched an aerial campaign against terrorist groups in Syria at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Syria has been engulfed in an armed conflict since 2011, with forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting against opposition factions and terrorist groups, including Daesh and al-Nusra Front.

    All I can say is God Bless Russia, Syria, Iran and Hezbollah, ‘Keep on on Keeping’ on or ‘Keep on Kicking Ass’! Don’t be fooled in peace talks, all the west wants is a cease fire so they can give time for the terrorist to reorganize and the US and its flunkies time to send in more weapons and ammo.
