Russia's Most Syrian Adventure #44

A Russian Airstrike in Lataminah

Over the past two months, 1,500 people have been killed by Russian airstrikes.

Russia's Su-34 strike fighters, the rough equivalent of the American F-15E, has started carrying air to air missiles.

France has warned Russia that Russia's airstrikes must only hit Daesh/IS.
Coalition forces conducted 15 airstrikes against IS/Daesh on Sunday.

Negotiations have started for the rebels to retreat from Homs, according to the Assadite government.

Assadites have denied they ever used chemicals weapons.

Putin and Obama are to hold talks on Syria and Ukraine while at the climate summit in Paris.  Putin is refusing to meet with Erdogan.

Here are some of the ways the sanctions imposed by Russia on Turkey will bite.  Even with the sanctions, Turkey will not apologize for the downed aircraft.  The Su-24 Fencer pilot's body has been shipped back to Russia.

There was a weird report that Turkey was blockading Russian ships crossing the Dardanelles.  I have significant doubts there.
