The Saudi-Israeli-American-backed takfiris have caused a lot of suffering in Syria. Until the middle of last year, they were making gains, because of the weapons and support they received from their foreign backers. Enter Russia on September 30, 2015, and all this changed. Russia decided it was not going to allow another government to be overthrown through Western conspiracy. After four months of Russian bombing raids, the terrorists have been put to flight.
The Syrian army has made steady progress since October and has retaken many positions in the north, northwest, and northeast of Syria. This is welcome news because the takfiris had indulged in gruesome killings and beheadings. They have not given up these barbaric practices but are on the run now. Unlike Western media reports, fair-minded reporters in Syria, not linked to the corporate Western media have revealed that people have welcomed the Syrian army as liberators exposing the lies being churned out in Western capitals. The conspiracy against Syria is being dismantled.
