According to reports, both Russia and Syria have ramped up their attacks against the Islamic State by targeting their financial infrastructure which is comprised mostly of oil distribution to nearby nations such as Turkey.
As reported by SouthFront:
“The Russian warplanes destroyed two long convoys of ISIL’s oil tankers in the Homs province. The first convoy with at least 8 oil tankers and some other military vehicles was targeted by the Russian Air Force near the city of Palmyra. Militants accompanying the convoy were also killed in the air raid. The joint squadron of the Russian and Syrian frontline bombers also destroyed 14 oil tankers and their guards near Sukhnah.”
According to reports, both the Russian and Syrian air-force have been focusing the bulk of their attention in the Homs province in an attempt to support the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) while orchestrating coordinated joint-military operations aimed at cutting off the oil-smuggling routes in the area.
However some believe that it is not a coincidence that Russia ramped up it’s aggression not long after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter-jet that it claimed was breaching it’s airspace. Something Russian President (Vladimir Putin) called a “Stab in the Back”
As reported by CNN:
“Russian President Vladimir Putin said the downing of the plane would have “serious consequences for Russia’s relationship with Turkey. The shooting of the plane, Putin said, “represents a stab in the back by the terrorists’ accomplices. I can’t describe what has happened today in any other way. Our plane was downed over Syrian territory by an air-to-air missile from a Turkish F-16 jet.
“The plane fell on Syrian territory 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) away from the Turkish border. It was flying 1 kilometer away from the Turkish border when it was attacked. In any case, neither our pilots nor our jet posed any threat to Turkey. That is obvious. They were carrying out an operation fighting against ISIL in Northern Latakia.” (ISIL is another acronym for ISIS.)”
Could we be witnessing the beginning of the Next World War?
