Palestinian rapper Don Mo released a new song in support of the actions of the Russian Air Force in Syria.

Mohamed Khazaal, also known by his nickname Don Mo, who currently lives in Moscow, believes that Russia will succeed in the fight against Daesh (Islamic State) militants.

The rapper released the new song "Damask," named after the Syrian capital Damascus.

The lyrics of Khazaal's song praise Russian soldiers, who "hit their targets right from the Caspian Sea," and Sukhoi planes, which are "destroying Daesh from the sky."

"We in Palestine live with pain and protest, and try to express our feelings and experiences through classical poetry in Arabic, but who would listen to poetry? That's why I use rap, which is a proven way to express your thoughts and draw people's attention to a particular problem, especially young people," Khazaal told Sputnik.

The rapper is convinced that after the fall of the Soviet Union, Arabic nations lost their main ally. However, now Russia is back and it's helping Syria to battle terrorism.

Russia doesn't bomb civilians, as its planes hit their targets precisely, the rapper told Sputnik, adding that it was the reason why he decided to record the song.

Russia has been carrying out an aerial campaign against terrorist groups in Syria since late September at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Since the start of the Russian aerial campaign, Russian combat aircraft have conducted over 6,000 sorties hitting terrorist targets, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

    IF Russia wants to end this , without U.S BULL HORN, Russia MUST get rougher and all with west. And worst, call OFF Geneva because U.S threats.
    What U.S BIG MOUTH KERRY is doing si trying to IMPRESS Russia, and force it to accept west terms. To later claim LEADERSHIP and that all was solves thanks to U.S.
    IRAN was solved thanks to Russia.
    The Turkish gassing of civilians in Syria using terrorists, is already out. Whether west media liars accept it or not.
    And Russia SHOULD push that ISSUE and present testimonies at UNGA. Don't let them thread on the BEAR.
    Send Russia's carrier with PAK FA in.. Time west know what they will be messing with..
    The NATO build up at Russia's step is for WAR. they WILL use military solution in Crimea and Kurill's.. and way more.
    Begin by removing ALL corporations OFF Russia. UNITE CIS EEU and get OFF E.U . Their treasonous ways are the shame of the world.

    Russia is cool and calculated and makes wise but not rash decisions, look at the west running around like headless chickens making rash decisions all the time. Russia has been ordained to execute judgement, whom the gods want to destroy they first make mad.
