US conducts rare cruise missile attack against jihadists in Idlib



[ALMASDARNEWS] The U.S. Navy conducted a rare attack against the jihadist forces inside the Idlib Governorate on Sunday, a new report alleged.

According to the report, the U.S. fired cruise missiles at a jihadist command meeting in the western countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

The report said the U.S. Coalition targeted the command meeting of the Hurras al-Deen Group, killing two Algerians, one Tunisian, and one Egyptian.

The U.S. often concentrates their attacks on the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) terrorist group in eastern and northern Syria; however, the northwestern part of the country has a large presence of jihadist organizations like Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
and the Turkestan Islamic Party.

#4  #Russia has effectively banned #America from the airspace for 2+ yrs.

Guess not. Betting Putzin is rather put off at spending 100 grand to put Trump in office. Snark off.
