RUSSIAN special forces airlifted besieged Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to safety from the roof of the Presidential Palace in Damascus while under heavy fire.
Parading the visibly uncomfortable president taking tea with Vladimir Putin on Russian state television, the president insisted the failing Syrian regime was still in control of the state, which underwent fresh attacks from ISIS yesterday as party of a new terror-contagion strategy being acted out across the region.
Thought to be responsible for escalating the bloody civil war in the region, Western forces from Spain, the UK, and Uruguay missed their opportunity to capture the president while he flew out of Syrian airspace, instead bombing the besieged town of Aleppo 276 miles to the North. Rebel snipers are reported to have taken pot shots at the president during his escape, which involved no reported casualties.
One Pentagon adviser told the Brute that Russia’s audacious rescue plan was “reckless”, lacking “international coordination and endangering an already fragile situation.” It is thought that without a dominant figure at its head, the regime will quickly crumble and leave Syria open to that barbaric Islamic State.
A spokesperson for the Kremlin claimed the West should be “applauding instead of condemning the braveness of Russian troops for rescuing the Syrian head of state”.
“When his life was endangered by terrorist groups that have their origins in Western meddling in the Middle East anyway, Russia rose to her responsibilities as a world power.”
The UN Security Council, NATO, and the Arab League have continued their crisis talks on the Syrian conflict today, but a resolution now appears doubtful.
