Syrian rebels combat pro-government forces in Aleppo, March 2014 (Source: AFP/ Tamer al-Halabi)

BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:20 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels launched a heavy attack on the Christian town of Mhardeh this evening, a source in the area told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the jihadist rebels fired several artillery shells and rockets towards the northern sector of Mhardeh, causing several explosions that could be heard throughout the town.

In response to the attack on Mhardeh, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) fired several missiles towards the militant-held areas in the Hama and Idlib governorates.

The Syrian military and jihadist rebels have been trading hostilities for several days now, with neither party making any gains on the ground.

Wait : S-400 is about to be delivered to Turkey => Turkey will get US sanctions.
Moreover, my 2 cents it’ll be ‘monkey models’.
Moreover, Erdolf is seriously provoking the EU too… Making the Sultan believe he has Russia’s support helps having him digging his own grave. This is very clever!
