Al-Nusra Front carried out attack on Sarmada displaced camp — the real Syrian Free Press
Russia’s Defense Ministry has accused the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front terror group of carrying out a recent deadly attack on a camp for internally displaced persons in northwestern Syria. “Judging by the damage shown in photographs and video, the camp may have been shelled either on purpose or by mistake by multiple rocket launchers, which are currently being used very actively in this area by terrorists from al-Nusra,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said. Konashenkov also said that no Russian or other warplanes were flying over the Kamuna camp near the Syrian town of Sarmada in Idlib province at the time of the Thursday attack. “We have attentively studied the information from the air space monitoring data in this area for May 4 and 5, 2016. There were no flights by Russian or any other aircraft over Sarmada,” Konashenkov noted.
