Insurgents in Syria

The terrorist Free Syrian Army has threatened to attack the airports of the capital, Damascus, and the northwestern city of Aleppo. The group recently said in a statement that the airports “will be considered legitimate military targets as of September 10.” The news comes as France is considering arming the insurgents in Syria with anti-aircraft guns, arguing that the military assistance will help end the turmoil in Syria. The foreign-sponsored insurgents claim the government is using airports to transfer weapons and troops by Syrian and Russian airliners. Since March 2011, Syria has been experiencing unrest, which President Bashar al-Assad’s government says is being orchestrated from outside the country. The anti-Syria Western regimes have been calling for Assad to step down, but Russia and China oppose the Western drive to oust the Syrian president. On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the Western governments to “reassess” their position on Syria, criticizing them for relying on terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda to overthrow the Syrian government.
