Shells hit the ground outside the Russian embassy in Damascus on Tuesday, October 10, 2015. It was clearly an attempt to terrorize the Syrian people who had gathered in a rally to express their support for the coordination between Russia and Syria against terrorists fighting in Syria.
The terrorists on the ground in Syria represent a global threat and Syrians recognize that the military coordination with Russia is the only solution to that threat.
Let me again be clear – Syrians welcome Moscow’s airstrikes on terrorists in Syria.
This includes the so-called “moderate rebels.”
The foreign-backed “moderate rebels” are incapable of allowing others the freedom to choose their own way to live. Instead, they bomb Syrians to get their message across. This is the only language the “moderate rebels” understand.
For instance, during the elections, Syrians went to the ballot box under missiles rained down upon them by “moderate rebels” who are peaceful seekers of democracy, at least as they are presented on mainstream media outlets in the West.
In this latest “moderate” attack, we are thankful that no member of the diplomatic mission was hurt.
Sergei Lavrov, the Russian Foreign Minister stated, “It’s a blatant act of terror meant to scare those who support the battle against terrorism,” according to RT.
But, while no diplomats were injured, there were injuries amongst the Syrians demonstrating in support of the Syria-Russia coalition.
A day before their shipment of weapons to terrorists (that Western media refers to as “moderates”), the U.S. coalition dropped bombs on Syrian infrastructure in Aleppo, bombing two power plants and causing greater misery for the people already suffering their under siege by America’s terrorists.
Syrians are tired of Western-backed terrorists, “moderate rebels,” and other “fighters” seeking to destroy our way of life and overthrow our government. Syrians support the Russian-Syrian coalition against ISIS and all other terrorists.
The United States does not speak for the Syrian people and it is doing nothing to help us. All “opposition” fighters are terrorists. We wish Russia and our government the best of luck in destroying them.
