AMMAN: Russia began its second day of airstrikes on Thursday, but 
instead of hitting the Islamic State, a rebel commander along with 
activists and fighters on the ground say Moscow is in fact targeting FSA 
affiliates, some of which are direct recipients of American TOW missiles 
and other military aid.

Russia’s intervention in Syria “is intended to exterminate the Free 
Syrian Army—no, the Syrian people,” Captain Jameel a-Salih of the 
FSA-affiliated Tajammua al-Izza brigade in north Hama told Syria Direct 
Thursday, expressing a sentiment shared by pro-opposition activists and 
fighters present in the Syrian north.
