      For them, then, we will condemn all alleged attacks by terrorists.

  2. Why Russia needs to calle the international community to condemn the alleged attack? – Are they the victims in Syria?

          You know how it goes, a dead Arab is only a martyr if killed by Amrikans or zionnists. The million others killed by Arabs, Iranians, Turks, Afghans… are just rubbish.
          Logic no?

  3. Ho hum. No surprise.

    Syrian State TV (ABC, NBC, CBS) dares to show heroic Opposition caches of small mortars and ammo clips as somehow proving anything. No one said no one was firing at the SAA, Hezbollah or Russian troops.
    Imagine the fools somehow thinking the “rebels” were responsible for the ruins of Aleppo, not the bloody RuAF and Russian Navy.

    1. Clown idiot…think.. you call ISIS “rebels”?
