The Russian airforce allegedly conducted over 55 sorties in the last 24 hours over Syria striking IS and Jabhat al Nusrah. It also described ‘illegally armed groups’ which may mean IS and Jabhat al Nusrah or other groups that are backed by the US, Gulf and Arab states.

It is strange that the US and coalition forces have all but ignored Jabhat al Nusrah considering it is al Qaeda in Syria. It has made notable gains in Syria and operates with many other Islamist factions and rebel groups deemed moderate by the West.
The same al Qaeda that the US and coalition forces invaded a whole country for, that being Afghanistan.
