    The Al Qaeda linked faction Jabhat al Nusra has attacked some western backed rebels, capturing their bases and equipment.

    The FSA affiliated 13th Division was attacked and has now been pushed out of the town of Marrat al Numan in Idlib province, as well as some other smaller villages. There are reports saying Nusra captured US supplied TOW missiles, but the 13th Division has denied this, so probably best to wait for more confirmation on that.


    Another thing not mentioned in the articles is that this also comes a few days after an anti government and pro-FSA protest in the area was interrupted in the area by Nusra supporters and fighters.

    Destabilization of Middle East was planned by neo-cons like Robert Kagan, who by the way is supporting Hillary and hates Donald Trump.

    Make America Great again! we can't allow these psychopaths to control America.
