Russian troops have been targeted and paid a considerable price combating international terrorism sponsored by powers of evil in Syria alongside the Syrian armed forces.
Since September 2015, the Russian military intervention in Syria was helpful in curbing the expanding powers of different terrorist groups in Syria, most notable of them were ISIS and Nusra Front, the two offsprings of Al Qaeda. These terrorist groups received enormous funding and supplied with state of the art weapons by the United States of America and its stooges. The USA went as far as forming a ‘Coalition’ of NATO member states and its regional allies to assist ISIS in affecting the regime change in Syria, the coalition created by the USA was outside of the international law, against the charter of the United Nations, which it and its partners are supposed to uphold.Russian General Killed by Roadside Bomb in Deir Ezzor, Northeast Syria
