FSA claims it killed Russian general in Syria who had been aiding Assad regime


english.alarabiya.net

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) announced in a statement to Al Arabiya on Wednesday that it has killed a Russian general in Syria who was working as a consultant to the Syrian defense minister and head of general staff of military affairs.

FSA said the killing of the general, Vladmir Petrovic Kojaiv, along his private translator, Ahmed Aiq, evidence that Russia was embroiled in the Syrian crisis. The rebel army said a number of documents and maps about the opposition and FSA were also seized.

The operation was conducted by its Ghota Western Brigades from Damascus along with FSA countryside

Wow, this is pretty big news and I'm sure it will bring some repercussions. I'm sure Russia didn't want things to worsen but with this bit of news things look pretty bleak. Maybe a major conflict isn't as far off as some thought.

Hopefully things can be handled in a diplomatic way and they don't resort to more violence. God knows we've already seen enough.

Wow it has really begun. I feel so sorry for Syrians who have to put up with this terrorism from the western world. I hope we get a good dose of chemical warfare for our trouble.

Put a russian general in a civil war


But it's not a Civil War.

It's America/UN/Israel vs Russia/China

Syria is just the backdrop.

This could be the straw that breaks the camels back.

What will Putin do?

He knows the FSA that killed one of his generals is American backed.

Warn all the snakes to go back to where they came from whether its Russia,Iran,Iraq or Lebanon.

Yep that was a warning and seems they can back up their words since a Russian general has been dispatched from Syria.

And after Syria is overthrown, and the Muslim brotherhood take charge in Syria after their 'elections', and the Al-Qaida flag flies high in Syria, what say you then to all this madness?

As it was mentioned yesterday, Putin is already in Cyprus some 72hrs ago, so yes, this explains the russian special forces on the ground within syria this explains putin's visit to cyprus under the pretense of an intended loan to cyprus for 2bn to aid its financial problems.

Smoke screen anyone ?

Yeah, he could do that, but that kind of response for the material in this article? Not likely. Not likely at all.

Think it just depends on how much involvement Russia wants to have in Syria and if it worth it. They have their naval base and the arms deal with Assad.

If they get too involved that can have the potential to put a bigger target on their backs if the spin machine is to be true that the FSA are "terrorists/al queda/muslim brotherhood could result in a major boondoogle.

The metric for "Terrorists" was for the last decade was the fought for dictatorial regimes like Saddam now all of the sudden they are fighting agianst them.

Nothing makes sense.

They already have trouble with NATO heroin pouring into Central Asia .What they can easily do is arm the Kurds to an extreme via Armenia/Azerbaijan and cause the terrorist turks a lot of trouble and destabilise Saudi Arabia .

As for Al qaeda ,the simplest solution for Russia is to turn the wahabbis into a radioactive dust or subject their nations to genetic weapons.That will solve the wahabbi problem.

I believe Russia will keep enough distance to create Plausible deniability so the finger cannot be put on them, the same as the west is doing, losing a general may be a blow, and you can expect a few senior members of the resistance with possible western accents be taken care of with very little media coverage.

The west will pressure the UN, China and Russia will resist and the rebels will continue to fight, the idea is to put in a puppet government and if the west cant get one in.
if it takes too long or looks like Assad stays in power you may see heavier fighting with controversial weapons.

Why would they?
Was he active duty?
It shows him in civilian clothes and states he was "Hired as a consultant"


Another source....

The FSA said several documents and maps were found in the possession of the General, who was employed by Syrian government as a consultant.


Still another...

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) claimed responsibility on Wednesday for the killing of a Russian general in Syria who was working as a consultant to the Syrian defense minister and head of general staff of military affairs, it said in an announcement aired by Al Arabiya.

This is just to keep the morals of the FSA fighters up, most likely it is B.S.

I believe the morals of FSA fighters have been tarnished after their leader in Aleppo was killed by Syrian Security Forces. In that sense, they need a counter story to boost the moral of their fighters, and at the same time keep the focus away from the fact that their leader was killed in Aleppo.
