Russia has been touted as the aggressor, and it appears that Vladimir Putin and his crew are not fazed by it. Reports from Syria said that Russia witnessed more deaths under its belt, while some claim that Moscow continues to look for more ways to progress military power. Can Russia be gunning for world domination?
Russia Blamed for Syrian Deaths
Russia may be trying to work with the United States to cease violence and war in Syria, but recent reports beg to disagree with its expressed goodwill. According to recent statistics, Russia and the government could be blamed for more deaths incurred in the region. Specifically, at least 90 people were killed during the overnight air strikes by the Syrian government and Russian forces across Syria. Information came from monitors and opposition activists.
According to the figures, most fatalities came from Aleppo province. Al Jazeera reported that more than 300,000 civilians continue to be trapped in the rebel-held regions. The air strikes hit a number of regions including town of Kafr Hamra and market in the nearby town of Urem al-Kubra.
“This is one of the highest death tolls we have seen in the recent days,” explained Al Jazeera’s Reza Sayah from the Gaziantep, found on the Turkish side of the Syria-Turkey border.
“The grim statistics came on a week in which the UN, international community renewed its call about the pause in fighting in order to get some aid to the people who desperately need it,” the correspondent added.
“These statistics, this death toll, is an indication that no one is hearing these calls.”
Russia Pairs with Israel
Despite calls for cessation, Russia does not appear to be in the mood to stop all its military efforts and progression. Moscow has been linked to reports of more advanced weapons.
National Interest reported that Russia may even have its sights on Israel because of the range of weapons the country has. Among these include missile defense, Israeli SPIKE family of missiles, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and conscription. There has also been heightened military cooperation between Moscow and Jerusalem in recent years.
