Putin Leading the Fight Against ISIS

While Obama and Kerry do nothing, Russian leader Putin is hunting down ISIS is Syria.

Putin reduced air raids in the northern city last week. The Syrian army said it was partly to allow civilians to leave opposition-held eastern neighborhoods.

The Syrian government said rebels holed up in Aleppo can leave with their families if they lay down their arms.

Now Putin is blasting the ISIS stronghold of Aleppo.

Russia’s intervention a year ago has helped the government side gain the upper hand against ISIS on many frontlines in the Syrian conflict, including Aleppo where the ISIS sector has been completely encircled for weeks.

ISIS had advanced elsewhere against government forces and their allies, including in Hama province further south where they captured a series of towns and villages last month. Government forces have regained some of those areas in recent days, however.

In the southern city of Deraa, which is split between government and terrorist control, ISIS shelling of a school killed at least five people including children on Tuesday, the Observatory and state media reported.

Residents reported the same death toll.
