Syrian Rebels Retaliate Against Russian Airstrikes by Shelling Pro-Government Civilians

  • Improvised "elephant" missiles agains a tiny, surrounded Shia enclave in Idlib
  • We know it's true because jihadi rebels have themselves advertised the fact they're terror shelling civilians

The jihadist rebels of Jaysh Al-Fateh (Army of Conquest) responded to the Russian airstrikes over the Idlib Governorate on Tuesday by firing several indiscriminate rockets and mortar shells at the villages of Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya.

As a result of these indiscriminate mortar shells and rockets, a total of 8 civilians in Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya were taken to a local field hospital in order to have their wounds treated.

This is the not the first time that the jihadist rebels have targeted Al-Fou’aa and Kafraya; nearly every week, Jaysh Al-Fateh finds a way to harass the civilians inside these two government controlled villages.
