In Aleppo, US and Saudi-Backed Rebels Targeted ‘Every Syrian’

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister said that CIA Director John Brennan promised during his February visit to Moscow to facilitate the separation of Syria's 'moderate opposition' from the terrorists as soon as possible, but he has failed to honor his promise.
