Arab states’ military support needed to avoid defeat, says Syrian opposition

‘The Russians will kill us all,’ say civilians forced to flee airstrikes in Aleppo but faced with gunfire at border with Turkey

Opposition fighters in Aleppo’s besieged east have said they are counting on the military support of Arab states, which announced they will send ground forces to Syria to save them from defeat at the hands of Russian bombers and pro-Assad militias.

With the war now in a decisive phase, rebel groups said they cannot hold ground without similar weapons and manpower to those of the Assad loyalists who continue to narrow a gap around the north of the city, while thousands more refugees made their way to the Turkish border.

        Do it for God’s sake dear Vlad, exterminate the jihadists and their supporters in Syria.

        • For Jesus’ sake.

          • African

            Yes, seriously for Jesus’ sake, do it dear Vlad. We know the muslim jihadists and their backers are the Anti-Christ.

    Well there are worse things which could happen…And once the anti-Assad forces are killed then onto ISIS. The shit in the yogurt is that that still leaves Hezbollah. Perhaps the Sunnis will direct their attacks in that direction.

      The anti-Assad forces (al-Nusra etc.) just keep melding into ISIS. Really they are just branches of the same thing. And the other anti-Assad forces, Russia and Saudi Arabia, are the chief funders and suppliers if ISIS. And Hezbollah is on the same side as Assad.

        America and Nato are on the side of genocidal ISIS, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Al-nusra etc. Let the other side win. Let Assad and his side win this or else two million Christians and millions of other minorities in Syria who are now safe under Assad will be exterminated by ISIS and other jihadists there.

    Anyone seen my violin? It’s about an inch long, and the perfect sorrowful accompaniment to this news.

    Check by your feet before you stand up, please.

    …arschloches going to start WW3 without ANY popular support…let the sand chimps clean up their own outhouse..

    So now western prog politicians are going to fully realize they have been played for patsies in a religous war between sunnis and shi’ites? Will they recognize that taking in sunni muslim rapefugees is like sending planes to Berlin in 1945 to rescue members of the Nazi party from advancing Soviet forces?
