Syrian warplanes and attack helicopters have pounded a pair of ISIS towns near Aleppo over the past 48 hours, killing around 50 people, mostly civilians according to rebels familiar with the situation.
The attacks included barrel bombs, which have been a tactic common to both Syrian and Iraqi military, and criticized harshly for their inaccuracy. Basically oil barrels filled with explosives, they often careen far off course.
Locals complained that one of the strikes hit a marketplace, which isn’t uncommon to barrel bomb strikes, or similar rebel strikes with their own inaccurate weaponry.
The Syrian military has aimed to expand its territory into Aleppo Province recently though fighting along the main highway connecting Aleppo to Damascus has slowed that progress. ISIS is similarly trying to expand in Aleppo, pressing the Kurdish city of Kobani along the Turkish border.

War criminal Obama, NATO and Saudis did hire, pay and arm these terrorist killers – they are the responsible mass-murderers.

Everyone has their devotions — Don’t they?
Syria, pro-Western and anti-religious secular Syria, surely it is doing far greater harm to the Middle-East then the Islamic State.
For most religious is the Islamic State, meaning that it enforces a moral code that greatly reduces capitalist greed, crime, drug and cigarette addiction, the corrupting influence of the Western dollar and Western loans, Western fiction which makes it almost impossible for Western kids to ever learn the difference between truth and fiction, Western entertainment that makes self-absorbed zombies out of Western people and Western divorce court, which allows the upper half of society to get all the free sex their heart desires from the enslaved and impoverished lower half.
And just think, if the Islamic State were to win over all of Syria, Iraq and Israel, there would not be a single Western Empire builder who would dare to show his face in all of the Middle-East.
