BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 P.M.) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday that he believed that the Russian military was behind the killing of dozens of Turkish soldiers during an attack in Idlib earlier this month.

According to statement from Pompeo, he said he believes Russia was likely behind the killing of the Turkish soldiers, which was later blamed on the Syrian Armed Forces.

This attack later resulted in a large-scale retaliatory assault that was carried out by the Turkish military against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Idlib, Aleppo, and Latakia governorates.

Furthermore, Pompeo vowed to provide aid to Turkey after the killing of its soldiers.

“We are looking to provide aid to Turkey after the killing of dozens of its soldiers in Syria,” he added after the announcement of new sanctions against the Syrian Defense Minister Ali Abdullah Ayoub.

It’s totally irrelevant what some obese psychopath from the American cesspit thinks. America is bankrupt and going down. They’ll soon hold as much sway in world affairs as Pompeo has in a slimming class. The Corvid-19 virus that they, in conjunction with Israel, engineered is going to backfire spectacularly and crush them both…..finally !

I love it when someone, almost verbatim, spews out the propaganda fed to them by their lying psychopathic “government”…..It makes me wonder about the mindset of someone who’s so easily manipulated and fooled. I know the Americans are not noted for their intelligence….but you still have reasoning !

F-16 pod Der ez zor zabijały syryjskich żołnierzy w obronie ucinaczy głów i swobody islamistów w całej Syrii!!
W Raqqa zaś USA armia wprowadzała za pomocą bomb równość wszystkich mieszkańców w stosunku do gleby.
