    Looks like a SVBIED. But It doesn't make any sense because it looks like a daisy chain.

    Sad news tonight:

    http://tass.ru/mezhdunarodnaya-panorama/2524475

    "In Syria was killed another commander of the IRGC, - stated in the message. - Brigadier General Hossein Fadai, who served under the pseudonym Zolfaqar", was one of the commanders of the brigades of the IRGC "Vitamin". The fadai was an Iranian military adviser and was killed during clashes with the Syrian army to terrorist group "Islamic state" (banned in Russia organization), describes details of the Agency.
    Noting that this is not the first time that Iran loses in Syria of its military personnel, the Agency cited a recent example: in November near Aleppo in the North of the country killed three soldiers Sunita, natives of the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan and Baluchestan. In this regard, the Farce draws attention to the fact that in the ranks of Iranian military advisers in Syria are Shiites and the Sunnis, who do not divide each other based on religious affiliation, but assist Damascus in fighting the common enemy - terrorism.



    and good news:
    In the Syrian district of Aleppo were spotted Russian T-90 from 1992
    http://gurkhan.blogspot.ru/2015/12/90-1992.html


    In the area of Aleppo were spotted the T-90 the first series, which is still referred to as the T-90 of 1992. These cars differ from the newer T-90A Russian army because they are welded instead of cast turret, other track, same as T-72B. If the T-90A has an engine IN-S to 1000 HP, the early model - IN-MS 840 HP

    On the T-90 the first series is not installed the infrared camera and infrared sight "Buran PA", which has a more reduced performance than thermal imaging system "ESSA" T-90A.

    This machine is early 90-ies is a complex optical-electronic suppression of tshu-1 "Blind-1", designed to deflect attacks managed anti-tank missiles, as well as equipment of the "Locales" of remote detonation of high-explosive projectile.

    Despite their age, these tanks are significantly higher than the T-72B, not to mention available to Syrians of old T-72M1, in the right hands they can be a very dangerous weapon.

    I'm almost certain that it's a VBIED loaded with ANFO, not an ammo dump/truck. The target's shaping is odd, the color resembles rusted steel plate, typical of ISIS' bomb trucks. Ammo burns when hit and produces numerous secondaries, ANFO goes up with a large, dark explosion like you see in this video.

    Here's some actual ammo trucks getting hit.

    Strange move, it has to be diversionary. They should be focusing their troops to defend Idlib and Saraqib. Any territory they take in North Hama wont mean shit if the SAA are at their backside.

    https://www.rt.com/news/325821-syria-terror-security-council/

    The UN Security Council has failed to condemn a terrorist attack in the city of Homs on Saturday that took the lives of 22 civilians, rejecting a Russian draft statement. Syria criticized the international community’s double standards.

    Following a deadly attack in Homs, the Syrian Foreign Ministry sent two identical letters to the UNSC and the office of the Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemning the series of terror attacks which took place in the country last week, urging the international community not to turn a blind eye to terrorism.

    Following the plea, the Russian UN mission drafted a statement that condemned the Homs attack in particular, which the UNSC was quick to reject.

    “Russia has prepared a draft statement for the UN Security Council in connection with the attack in Homs. The proposal was rejected,” the diplomatic source told RIA, adding that some of the members of the council disagreed with certain provisions in the document.

    The exact content of the draft has not been shared, but on Saturday, Syrian Foreign ministry in its address to the UN stressed that Syria is suffering “a series of ongoing crimes against humanity,” urging the international community and members of the UNSC to cease financing terrorist groups in Syria.

    On Saturday, a group of terrorists detonated a car bomb near a hospital in the center of Homs. At least 22 people were killed and more than 70 injured, hospital staff told RIA.

    The Syrian army, backed by local militia forces, has regained control over the Mardj-al-Sultan military airbase outside Damascus, a source in the militia told RIA Novosti Monday.

    “Marj al-Sultan Airbase has been freed. Terrorists from the al-Nusra Front and the Jaish al-Islam have retreated toward Hush al-Salehi. Dozens of militants have been killed,” the source told RIA Novosti. The Mardj-al-Sultan airbase is located in Douma, a town 18 kilometers from Damascus. It served as a major stronghold for the Jaish al-Islam terrorist group.

    According to the source, the Syrian army and militia have managed to establish a security zone around the airbase. Army engineers are demining the area.

    On November 10, the Syrian army with Russia's air support managed to break the blockade of the Kweiris airbase in eastern Aleppo province. Kweiris airbase has been besieged by terrorist groups for more than three years. The airport's garrison of about 1,000 officers and soldiers repelled over 400 attacks by militants, killing about 1,500 terrorists.

    Some of the Turkish troops deployed in a camp in northern Iraq have left and are heading toward the border of Turkey, NTV news channel reported citing military sources on Monday.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) – According to the news station, 10 military vehicles left the Bashik camp not far from the city of Mosul.

    Iraqi authorities said Turkish servicemen and armored vehicles entered Iraqi territory on December 4. Iraq has called the presence of Turkish military on its territory illegal and has demanded Ankara immediately withdraw the troops.


    However, Iraqi authorities so far do not have any information that would confirm that Turkey has withdrawn some of its military troops from the country’s northern region, an Iraqi government source told Sputnik on Monday.

    “We currently don’t have any information confirming the withdrawal of Turkish troops from Iraq,” the source said.

    Major scandal.. Turkey Erdogan helped ISIS to get Sarin Gas to attack
    Syria.



    http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/12/14/turkey-supplied-sarin-gas-to-isis/

    And you have there nothing less than a Turkey parliament  politician that says that.
    For sure he will be arrested or killed for "treason" for telling the Truth of ERdogan
    connection with international terrorism and genocide of civilians.

    The more time pass the more embarrassing will be for Obama to claim is "fighting ISIS"
    when its closest allies is helping them and its own government too..

    So pathetic mustafa the troll attempt to justify its government criminal actions in Syria.
    i really hope that Syria lawsuit against Turkey will be so big ,that Turkey generations will have
    to pay trillions dollar to Syria for its alliance and support of terrorism and the nation disbanded
    in many parts.

    Kremlin confirms Russia supports Free Syrian Army forces in their offensive against IS

    Earlier on Monday the chief of Russia’s General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, said more than 5,000 troops of the Free Syrian Army were pushing ahead with offensive operations in four provinces

    MOSCOW, December 14. /TASS/. The Russian military supports some forces of the Free Syrian Army in their offensive against the Islamic State (outlawed in Russia as a terrorist organization), Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Monday.

    "It is true that some forces of the Free Syrian Army are involved in offensive operations against the Islamic State and other extremist groups," he said. "These offensive operations have support from the Russian armed forces."

    Peskov advised the media to address all questions regarding that cooperation, including the tactics, to Russian military officials.

    Earlier on Monday the chief of Russia’s General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, said more than 5,000 troops of the Free Syrian Army were pushing ahead with offensive operations in four provinces: Homs, Hama, Aleppo and Raqqah.

    "The number of such Free Syrian Army groups keeps growing. To support these groups alone Russian planes carry out 30-40 strikes a day. The groups also get weapons, ammunition and other material supplies," Gerasimov said at a meeting with foreign military attaches.

    "I have nothing to add to what the chief of the General Staff said," Peskov said, when asked about weapons supplies.

    I think this is just the Moscow's way of making a very salient point.
    The game that's been played on Moscow ever since they joined the fray has been that anyone they bombed (who isn't ISIS) is somehow "FSA". So, this is Moscow's way of saying: well then, I've got my very own "FSA". Since "FSA" has become a label you can stick on group whenever it suits you.
    So yea, they are "FSA" alright.
