'Don't make it worse for yourselves': Helicopters drop leaflets on ISIS and rebel fighters warning them to give up now ahead of huge Russian-backed ground offensive

A graphic showing who is fighting who in the Middle East and why. The conflict has become so complex that arch enemies are finding their interests have aligned, presenting  diplomatic and military conundrums
Syrian army helicopters have dropped tens of thousands of leaflets on ISIS and rebel fighters, warning them to get out now and 'don't make it even worse for yourselves'.

The flyers were let go over the embattled cities of Rastan and Talbiseh, which have been pounded by Moscow's warplanes this week and where Russia claims 5,000 ISIS and al-Nusra Front terrorists are stationed. 
It came as Russian media said there would soon be a large ground operation in the area driven by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's troops - with Russia's military backing from the air and possibly on the ground, involving Spetsnatz special forces.

Iranian troops are said to have crossed the border from Iraq last week to help prop up Assad's ailing regime.

  1. While our president fiddles and goes on another campaign trip. Pathetic. How is it that the Russians can wipe out the terrorists in a couple of weeks and we can't do it in years? Because the terrorists are our friends but shhhhhh we aren't supposed to know that.

  2. Lovely for the Europeans cause that's where ISIS will run. Wonder if Putin will come to their aid as well? You know Obarny Fief won't.
