Russia's Most Syrian Adventure #12

The pace of Russian airstrikes has dropped significantly.  They hit 32 targets in the last 24 hours.

The Russo-Assad offensive seems to have slowed down.  Homs is still contested according to some sources.  The Assadites claim they are now attacking north of Homs.  Its unclear if this is because they have taken Homs (seems doubtful) or if they are attempting to encircle it (more likely).

The Russians have met with the Israelis and Turks.  The intent is to keep them placated so as to prevent any further interference with their plans to help Assad.

The Russians are claiming a Siberian Mosque was attacked by Islamic State in 2014.  Its possible, but Vlad, the timing...geesh.

The West and Russians have not made an agreement over Syrian airspace.
