Dozens of Russian generals at a military base near the eastern Syrian city of Latakia were killed Sunday afternoon in a deadly car bomb attack committed by two opposition factions, Ahrar al-Sham and Bayan movement, Syrian opposition groups reported on Wednesday.

According to the media office of Ahrar al-Sham, the two factions, in coordination with local jihadists who were located at the Russian military base, decided to bomb the car after they observed a gathering of senior Russian generals at the military base.

Ahrar al-Sham claims that dozens of Russian generals were killed and injured in the explosion. According to the movement, the announcement of the terror attack was delayed until Wednesday to ensure that the jihadists who committed the attack returned safely to opposition territories.

The military base that was hit by the car bomb is considered one of the most important military centers of the Russian forces on the Syrian coast, located some 15 kilometers from Latakia.

The belated announcement of the car bombing came shortly before the Syrian truce was scheduled to start on Saturday. Russia and the US have already announced that the ceasefire will not apply to ISIS and al-Nusra Front, but in light of this terror attack, Russia might demand the exclusion of Ahrar al-Sham as well.

    No such bombing took place. Our family lives in Latakia and some work in Jableh. You are lying. When you quote Zionists you expose yourself. We know who you are.

    • Don’t you get tired of being so angry all the time? Relax and accept the inevitable. The terrorists in Iran (Khamenei regime), Syria (Assad regime and ISIS), Iraq (Iranian-funded militias and ISIS), and Lebanon (Hezbollah) will lose. It is a simple math problem. Once Obama leaves, you are on your own again. This time around, we will finish them all off.
