Moscow’s Embassy Rocketed After U.S. Armed Al-Nusra Calls for Killing Russians
After the U.S. provided “insurgents” in Syria with tons for ammunition and weapons, the Russian embassy in Damascus was struck by two rockets.
AFP reports claim the rockets were fired by “Islamist rebels” from the eastern edge of the capital.
Around 300 people were outside the embassy demonstrating in support of Russia’s effort to bolster the al-Assad government and target jihadi and other U.S. and Saudi proxies.
No deaths or injuries were reported.
The attack followed a call by al-Nusra to kill Russians. The jihadi terrorist organization collaborates with and receives arms from U.S. “vetted” groups in Syria.
“If the Russian army kills the people of Syria, then kill their people. And if they kill our soldiers, then kill their soldiers. An eye for an eye,” declared Abu Mohamed al-Jolani, the head of al-Nusra in Syria.
Jolani called on the “heroic Mujahideen” in the Caucuses to attack Russians.
He also offered a bounty for “whoever kills Bashar al-Assad and ends his story, even if he is of his own people and family.”
In addition, he offered a reward for the assassination of Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Meanwhile, Israel has continued to target Syrian targets in the Golan.
“In response to the rocket fire, IDF artillery targeted two military posts of the Syrian Armed Forces in the central Syrian Golan Heights,” an Israeli army statement said on Tuesday.
