WW4/Middle East Files: Russia’s air campaign against Syrian rebels continues into 4th day, “decimating” 50 ISIS positions, including stronghold in Raqqa, Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, Sukhoi combat aircraft fly 60 sorties from base in Latakia since Sept. 30, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman boasts: “Our intelligence shows that militants are leaving areas under their control. Panic and desertion have started in their ranks. We will not only continue attacks by our airplanes but will increase their intensity”; US-backed rebels appeal to Washington for SAMs to shoot down Russian warplanes attacking their positions: “We need one of two things. Either a clear policy from the United States to prevent Russia and the regime from bombing Syrians, or otherwise they should send us anti-aircraft missiles so that we can confront the Russian planes”; Inherent Resolve spokesman: No change in coalition ops in spite of Russia’s intervention; WSJ re. Iran’s invasion/infiltration of Syria in defense of Assad: “Experts believe Iran has some 7,000 IRGC members and Iranian paramilitary volunteers operating in Syria already”
