They have been there for months, they did not just show up. Stop embellishing the story, this news agency is like SANA, mostly untruths.

I am willing to bet Russia knew all along as Israel sent representatives to Russia, US and UK just a day or 2 before the bombing.

That's true, Israel could use more land, they have done a great job developing Gaza and West Bank, we can all buy some condos by the sea.

Syrian, is this true?:

Israeli F-16s Fired 8 Missiles, Bunker-Buster at Syria Chemical Site Where 3,000 Iranian Soldiers Were Stationed. Many Iranians Died In Attack!!!
The site allegedly attacked by Israel in Syria manufactured chemical and biological weapons, according to a report in Iraqi newspaper a-Zaman that appears in London.

The newspaper quoted Western diplomats who are close to the regime of Bashar al-Assad. It says that the classified installation, which is located just 12 kilometers (7 miles) from the presidential palace, was guarded by a large contingent of Iranian Revolutionary Guards, many of whom died in the attack.

A diplomatic source interviewed by the newspaper said that the attack took place 48 hours before it was first reported. He said that initial reports regarding a convoy that was attacked were meant to disguise the true target of the attack. However, the newspaper reported, some trucks were also destroyed in the attack.

The diplomatic source said that Israeli F-16 jets carried out two sorties over the installation, firing at least eight guided missiles at it as well as at least one bunker busting bomb. The installation was badly damaged and there were numerous casualties. He said that about 3,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guards were stationed at the installation, as well as several Russian experts.

Correct me if I'm wrong....but Russia has given the Syrian government POWERFUL Isklander missiles that are a game changer in the Syrian conflict.

SO why doesn't Russia/Syria USE these powerful Russian weapons on the rebels attacking the Pro-Russia Syrian government??? WHAT are they waiting for???

If the Pro-Russia Syrian government does not ONCE and for all use its POWERFUL Russian weapons against the rebels.....then the Syrian government and Russian forces there....should just LEAVE Syria.

There is no need to use those weapons at this time, just as there is no need for Syria to use chemical or biological WMDs. They are just there as an insurance policy.

The Iskander is good for taking out large concentrations of men and armour those Rats in Syria are in small marauding Rodent groups,i believe the Russians destroyed a full Georgian armoured HQ with an Iskander in the Georgian War when that tie eating Clown Sakashvilli got out of his cage.
