Fighting in Syria Claims 69 more Lives
It’s still not over in Syria despite the impression some media outlets are presenting. Over the weekend, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, armed groups such as the al-Qa’ida Syrian franchise waged battle against troops of the Bashar al-Assad regime in the northwest province of Idlib leaving 69 dead. As has happened over and over, after ground forces get bogged down they bring in the Russian-led air force to keep at it. As is usual, ground forces will remain where they are through.
