NEW YORK CITY, The United States of America – It appears in a Tweet that was meant to be edgy and funny, the New York Times had just acknowledges and admitted that the same terrorist responsible for killing a Russian pilot two days ago are fighting alongside the Turkish military in Syria.

“A Qaeda affiliate in Syria, H.T.S., shot down a Russian jet in Idlib. The Russian Air Force let the Turkish Air Force bomb Afrin. H.T.S. is among the fighters in a Turkish offensive in Afrin. Is the ally of their ally their enemy?” the Tweet said.

HTS is the abbreviation of Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham, or more commonly known as the Al-Nusra Front, who are Al-Qaeda affiliated. 

The New York Times attempted to highlight a flaw in the Turkish-Russian relationship, but perhaps the Times should reflect on their own government and acknowledge that Turkey and the US are both NATO members. That is to say, the Turkish-US relationship is so intimate that if Turkey was to be attacked by a foreign aggression, the US are legally bound to defend Turkey while Russia has not obligation to do so.

This demonstrates another weak effort by US mainstream media to again portray Russia in a negative way.

The tweet came as a Russian hero was killed by terrorist forces in Syria. Further details of his death can be found here.
