State sponsors of terror bombed Latakia, Tartous, and the Hama cities of Syria, at approximately 10 p.m., Syrian time. SANA reported that many of the missiles directed at Lattakia were intercepted and that the bombs were “coming from the sea.” State sponsors of terror targeted the Technical Industries building. At this writing, electricity is out in Latakia city.
Other sources report bombings of Tartous and Hama. One area of Hama was described as “the sky is totally in red.” Another source reported that Russia had launched its air defense system over Hmeimim base (in Tartous).
One Syrian stated: Syria should fire back even if it was the US, and this is not emotional. This madness will stop once a few hundred American uniforms are sent back in body bags.
Here is a video of one of the bombings by the state sponsors of terror against the SAR. Imagine this atrocity in your city.

It was America & its dogs the UK & France add to the Zionist entity who launched their missiles across the sea from the warships on Lattakia, Tartous, Jableh Homs! For those countries it’s ok to bomb our country directly & to spread death, destruction & horror! It’s ok to make our air polluted by their fire & missiles & to have many critical cases after inhaling this polluted air & getting wounded! Stop your crimes, enough is enough. ~Afraa Dagher

Russia just sacrificed 14 of its soldiers to please
#Israel and prevent #Syria from getting a newer version of air defense systems. Russian plane shot by an outdated S200, keep in mind S300 is already 4 decades old & Putin still pleases Netanyahu on Syria’s account.

Russian Ministry of Defense blames Israel for putting the Russian doomed plane in the line of danger between the Israeli attacking jets and the outdated Syrian air-defense missiles. Israel informed the Russians about their intention to attack Syria one minute before the attack, Russian MoD added.
