Russia names Syrian rebel groups it says it is supporting with air strikes

by Reuters  |  published on December 16, 2015

Russia’s defense ministry said on Tuesday its planes had carried out air strikes to support four rebel groups in Syria, saying it was working to try to unite the efforts of the Free Syrian Army and government troops against Islamic State.

The General Staff of the Russian army issued the statement as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry held closed-door talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow, with Syria topping the agenda.

It said over 5,000 Syrian opposition rebels were fighting against Islamic State in concert with the government forces of President Bashar al-Assad and that some rebels were supplying Russia’s air force with targets for air strikes.

    Putin has turned out to be the Worlds Mightiest Leader since the USA was stupid enough to elect an UnVetted Homosexual Muslim Kenyan Queen that has all his records SEALED Tight! I was a Democrat in 2008, had been all my life, but all I heard from the Kenyan’s mouth was outright LIES and BS and there was no way I was going to vote for someone no one knew one thing about except what his lapdogs feeds us about him. So I voted Republican for McCain, whom I cannot stand but at least I knew he was an “American”, unlike the Queer Kenyan boy, Hussein. Then the Democrats showed that they were truly the Party of Treason, one of whom I will never vote for again, totally unrecognizable as being anything close to “American” today! So, the World’s Strongest Leader today is Russia’s Putin, and the most respected! There is nothing to respect about a Cowardly Homosexual Muslim Queer named B. Hussein Obama!
