In a video posted on the Internet on October 13, 2015, foreign Jihadi fighters are shown standing with weapons and threatening Russia that "Syria will be the graveyard of the Russians."


Following are excerpts:


Saudi cleric Abdallah Al-Muhaysini: Oh Russians, you are welcome to come here, in order to enter your graveyard, here in the land of Syria. You are welcome to come here, so that mujahideen in Syria can replace their worn-out tanks, send them to museums, and take your tanks instead. You are welcome to come, but before you decide to come to the land of Syria, you should gather your carpenters so that they can prepare your coffins. You should also enlarge your planes so that they can take your coffins. You should erect tents of mourning and lamentation for your dead.

Oh people of Syria, even if the Russians come from Russia to fight you, the Iranians come from Iran to fight you, and people from all over the world come to fight you, know that the Sunnis – the vanguard of whom are standing here – have come to you from all countries of the world. They want to sacrifice their blood and their souls for you, and to turn Syria into a graveyard for the Russians, just as they turned Afghanistan into the graveyard of the USSR, with the help of Allah.


[…]


Finally, oh Russians, listen to [this message] in various languages: Syria will be the graveyard of the Russians, Allah willing.
