Syrian rebel says Russia air raids mean longer war, seeks anti-aircraft missiles
"These air strikes will extend the life of the war as a first step," said Zoubi, whose Yarmouk Army fights under the banner of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). "As a second step, they will spread extremism, because when the war becomes a global one against the Syrian people, it will not retreat from its goals, and there will be fertile ground to attract foreign fighters to fight the Russians," Zoubi said. "As Russia lost in Afghanistan, it will not win in Syria. There will be more killing and more bloodshed."
