SYRIAN ARMY DESTROYS ALL TUNNELS IN BARZA AS IT ADVANCES INTO AL-QAABOON! WHAT’S GOING ON NOW?

تدمير أوكار ودشم رشاشات للارهابيين والقضاء على اعداد منهم في درعا وريف حمص

The terrorists of Jaysh Al-Islam are in a most precarious position today.  This is evinced by their frenzied theft of medical and pharmaceutical items as they prepare for the impending clean-up that is coming.  The SAA is advancing in every location.  Yesterday, the Syrian Army reached the Tishreen Thermal Station killing 12 rodents and wounding scores.  Today, the SAA liberated the area between Al-Barza Farms and  Al-Qaaboon all the way to Western Harastaa and Dhaahiyat Al-Assad.  All main tunnels have been destroyed leaving the rodents with few options to transport their instruments of murder.  We can also say with confidence that Al-Barza has been separated completely from Al-Qaaboon.  The Saudis in Jordan are reporting to their cockroaches in Riyaadh that the campaign is dying.

This is also happening in the south where Americans hoped to stage some coup establishing a new enclave linked to both Jordan and the Zionist Abomination.  That is not going well, at all.  Yesterday, the SAA pounced on a grouping of rodents on the Dam Road and the Naaziheen Camp destroying a fixed anti-aircraft cannon, a pile of machine gun magazines and a mobile satellite communications truck.  The same occurred south of Al-Karak at the water reservoir.

Nusra/Alqaeda, now commanded directly by the Zionist Obscenity, found itself surrounded after it attacked several SAA outposts.  I have been informed that the terrorists took heavy casualties.

At Al-‘Abbaasiyya, Haarat Al-Badw, Haarat Al-Hammaadeen, 3 pickups with 23mm cannons were destroyed along with one rocket launcher and 19 rodents killed.

At Nasb, the SAAF killed the spokesman for Ahraar Al-Shaam, one Usaamaa Nasrullaah Al-Shareef (a/k/a “Abu Zayd”). 

And at Dayr El-Zor, ISIS has begun to fight itself over territory.  At Al-Maqaabir (Cemeteries), the SAA killed 21 rodents.  At Khashshaan, ISIS has begun a campaign of kidnapping women and children as punishment for not supporting their cause.  It’s becoming a real mess as the U.S. continues to slaughter innocent civilians in Al-Raqqa with barbaric aerial assaults.

So what is going on?  The Russians seem most phlegmatic these days. Imperturbable probably because the war is going their way.  In Afghanistan, it appears that Russia has decided to up the ante on Trump by making the American presence there even more untenable.  Some U.S. Army commander has “suggested” that Russia is now supplying the Taliban with arms, both medium and heavy, to use against the so-called “coalition”.  Is it possible the Cold War is back?  I’m afraid it looks that way.  Donald Trump, even more inept than Obama, is igniting a conflict which is starting to resemble those decades of old when the CIA and KGB were trying to do the other in in novels written by John LeCarre, Len Deighton, Graham Green and Ian Fleming.

Trump’s attack on the airbase at Al-Shu’ayraat will be his last.  Oh, there will be more false flags set up by the French (unless Marine wins) or the British, yet, we don’t suspect Trump will test the upgraded air defenses once more in the airspace over Syria.  Somebody must have told him that the Russians won’t tolerate this again.  Somebody must have told him that his Tomahawks didn’t work terribly well when they hit a backwater airbase used to store bombers in disrepair.  Trump is flirting with disaster as he ramps up the rhetoric over North Korea and Syria and uses meaningless super-bombs over the heads of a few ISIS apes.  This president is as mercurial as we thought, only, he is shifting his policies to such an extent that we can now comfortably call him a liar.

As the war in Syria wears on, so does the landscape change.  The Syrian Army is on its way to Khaan Shaykhoon, that same town where the most recent false flag event was waved.  Despite the balanced opinions of true experts, the U.S. continues with its shenanigans and lies with the unqualified support of the Deep State and the prostituted corporate media.  It is obvious that a lesson must be sent to Mr. Trump who treats his failures like water rolling off a duck’s back.  If he learns a lesson, then, so be it.  If he doesn’t, maybe his lieutenants will have the intestinal fortitude to tell him that he must back off policies which could lead to his own immolation.

The army in Syria has concluded many agreements with former rodents thus releasing tens of thousands of new troops for new fronts which need the full attention of the Ministry of Defense.  With Hizbollah now leaving border posts to the Lebanese Army, expect the fronts in Idlib, Der’ah and East Homs to heat up to critical mass.  And Iran is boosting its presence with new proxies arriving to aid the SAA.  It looks like the war is going to slow down appreciably over the next 4 months as the murderous rodents start to realize that the afterlife may not be worth all this hurly-burly.

أكراد سورية أمام المفترق

أكراد سورية أمام المفترق

ناصر قنديل

– يواجه حزب الاتحاد الديمقراطي الكردي أصعب لحظات سياسية منذ حضوره في الحرب السورية، وبعدما نجح في حجز مقعد قوة حاضرة ولاعب رئيسي، بمعزل عن قبول أو رفض أو الاعتراض على السياسات التي انتهجها، لكن هذا الحزب المتأثر بأفكار وتوجّهات حزب العمال الكردستاني الذي يقاتل في تركيا دفاعاً عن حقوق الأكراد، التقط المزاج العام لأكراد سورية بالنظر لتركيا كعدو وقوة احتلال، ورفض الدخول في صفقة تضمن له دور اللاعب الثانوي في الميليشيات التي تديرها تركيا والسعودية، وتحمّل بسبب ذلك إقصاءه عن صيغ التفاوض في جنيف، من دون أن يخسر مكانه في الميدان وينجح باستدراج عروض الدول الكبرى، في موسكو وواشنطن خصوصاً، وصولاً للتحوّل إلى الذراع الرئيسية للأميركيين في الحرب السورية، ومنحهم امتيازات أمنية وعسكرية استراتيجية في مناطق سيطرته.

– إذا كان بعض قيادات أكراد سورية قد اشترى الوهم ذاته الذي اشترته قيادات أكراد العراق من الأميركيين بدعم نشوء كيان كردي مستقل، فإنّ مرور أربعة عشر عاماً على الاحتلال الأميركي للعراق دون تنفيذ هذا الوعد تقول لهؤلاء السوريين المراهنين على الموقف الأميركي لقيام كيان كردي ماذا ينتظرهم، لكن بعض القيادات الكردية الأخرى، وهي الأغلبية باتت على يقين، بعد تجاربها مع الأميركيين، بأنّ وعود قيام كيان مستقلّ أو فدرالية، لا يمكن صرفها في الواقع مع وجود معادلات سورية داخلية وإقليمية ودولية معقدة لا تتيح استسهال التفكير بهذه الخيارات بمجرد الحصول على كلام أميركي أثبتت الأيام أنه عرضة للتبدّل مراراً. وتكتفي هذه القيادات باعتبار العائد المجزي لهذه العلاقة مع واشنطن هو منع الاستفراد التركي بأكراد سورية، وجعلهم هدفاً لحربهم في سورية، بعد فشلهم في تحقيق الهدف الأصلي وهو السيطرة على سورية، وتسليمهم بخطوط حمراء يرسمها الدور الروسي، ليصير النزاع التركي الكردي قائماً على كيف سترسم واشنطن خطها الأحمر، وهل سيكون الأكراد من ضمنه؟

– قدّم الأكراد للأميركيين كلّ ما يريدونه، فمنحوهم الجغرافيا التي يسيطرون عليها، ومعها شرعية شعبية لتدخّلهم، وتتيح لهم الادّعاء بأنهم ليسوا قوة احتلال، وفقاً للخطاب السوري الرسمي الذي يرفع عنهم غطاء الشرعية القانونية، وقاتلت الميليشيات الكردية ضدّ الجيش السوري بطلب أميركي، لإبعاده عن منطقة الحسكة، واشترى الأكراد غضب شرائح سورية تتشارك معهم وستتشارك على مرّ الأزمنة المقبلة مستقبل عيش واحد، فاضطروا لتبلية مقتضيات توسع الجغرافيا العسكرية الأميركية أن يوسّعوا جغرافيتهم السياسية عنوة، بضمّ مناطق ليس فيها أكراد لنطاق ما أسموه بالإدارة الذاتية، وحربهم على الإرهاب التي كانت ضدّ داعش والنصرة في مناطق حضورهم عدّلوا وجهتها لتنسجم مع الأجندة الأميركية، فحصرت بداعش، وصارت تشمل كلّ الحرب على داعش بما في ذلك في المناطق التي سيدخلونها كقوة غريبة وربما قوة احتلال كتصدّرهم عنوان الحرب في الرقة. ووصل قادة الأكراد لقبول تنازلات طلبها الأميركيون عن علاقتهم بحزب العمال الكردستاني تقرّباً للأتراك فجاءهم الجواب بفتح الحرب التركية عليهم تحت العيون الأميركية.

– يقف الأكراد في سورية اليوم أمام نموذجين مختلفين في معاملتهم، النموذج الأميركي الذي لا يقدّم لهم الحماية عندما تدقّ ساعة المواجهة كما حدث في منبج وقبلها جرابلس ويحدث اليوم، مقابل أنهم أعطوه كلّ شيء، ونموذج الدولة السورية التي نكّلوا بها وأساؤوا إليها فتسامحهم، وتمدّ اليد إليهم، كما حدث في منبج ويحدث اليوم بفتح طريق القامشلي إلى دمشق. ومع توسّع المعارك التركية ضدّ الأكراد ينطرح عليهم الوقوف على مفصل طرق، قبول التحوّل مجرد أداة أميركية لتقرّر لعبة المصالح الدولية والإقليمية مصيرهم، أو التطلع لدور وطني جوهره ومحوره التمسك بالهوية السورية والاحتماء بخطاب وطني سوري، ينطلق من اعتبار الدولة السورية حضناً لجميع أبنائها، ومرجعاً لهم، واعتبار دور الجيش السوري سقفاً لكلّ معادلة أمنية وعسكرية، ولا أحد يطلب اليوم من حزب الاتحاد الديمقراطي حرباً هوائية على الأميركيين، بل الاقتناع بخطورة التحوّل أداة أميركية، والاكتفاء بالعودة خطوة إلى الوراء تقول: لا حرب في الرقة بلا ردع شامل للعدوان التركي.

Lavrov: Hezbollah Just as Russia’s Aerospace Force Present in Syria at Government’s Request

April 26, 2017

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov

Iranian forces and Hezbollah, just as Russia’s aerospace group are in Syria at the invitation of the country’s government, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said after talks with his visiting Saudi counterpart Adel al-Jubeir in Moscow on Wednesday.

“As far as the presence of Iran and Hezbollah in Syria is concerned, you know well we do not consider Hezbollah a terrorist organization,” Lavrov said. “We proceed from the understanding that both, just as Russia’s aerospace group, are in Syria at the invitation of the country’s legitimate government.

“We know Saudi Arabia’s stance and it is clear that our approaches to this are not identical, to put it mildly,” Lavrov said. “But we are unanimous that a settlement of the Syrian crisis requires the involvement of all Syrian parties without any exceptions, and of all foreign actors that can exercise influence on the internal parties. Except for the terrorist organizations declared as such by the UN Security Council, of course.”

Lavrov recalled that Iran, just as Russia and Saudi Arabia, was a member of the International Syria Support Group. Besides, Iran had declared its commitment to the UN Security Council’s Resolution 2254.

“Besides, within the framework of the Astana process Iran, alongside Turkey and Russia, is one of the three guarantors of ceasefire, which is of crucial importance at this stage,” Lavrov said.

Syrian War Report – April 25 & 24, 2017: Syrian Army Advancing On Militant Stronghold Of Lataminah

Voiceover by Harold Hoover

Syrian government forces have regained more areas from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham-led forces in northern Hama. Government troops have captured Massanah, Zawr Mahruqah, and reached Markabah. Clashes were also reported in Buwaida and Zailaqiat. Current developments show that government forces will likely attempt to secure Buwaida and Markabah and then storm Lataminah.

Fresh speculation has been circulating in the media that Russia is preparing to deploy its ground forces to Syria following an expected official request by the Syrian government. The reports refer to some unknown military sources and argue that a plan for the deployment already exists. However, this looks like another attempt to warm things up on the diplomatic front amid the collapse of “opposition” forces in northern Hama.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have continued their steady advance against ISIS in the northern countryside of Raqqah and inside the town of Tabqah.

The SDF seized the district of Wahhab in southern Tabqa and an industrial facility in the western part of the town, allegedly killing over 10 ISIS terrorists.

While the SDF is successfully advancing inside the town, reports that the US-backed force is in control of over more than half of Tabqah are not confirmed by evidence.

In the northern countryside of the ISIS self-proclaimed capital, SDF fighters achieved full control over a number of recently encircled villages north of Al-Hazimah and Mazraat Tishrin.

On Monday, the US Treasury Department Office of Foreign Assets Control issued sanctions against 271 employees of Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center, alleging that the agency is responsible for producing chemical weapons.

“We take Syria’s disregard for innocent human life very seriously, and will relentlessly pursue and shut down the financial networks of all individuals involved with the production of chemical weapons used to commit these atrocities”, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.

There are no doubts that the words “all individuals” don’t include members of al-Qaeda-style “opposition organizations” operating across Syria, specially if these “opposition organizations” fight against the Assad government.

On April 7th, the US launched 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at the Ash Sha’irat military airfield operated by the Syrian Air Force following an alleged chemical attack supposedly conducted by the Syrian government in the province of Idlib. This move was described by Washington as a legal way to send a “signal” to the Syrian government.

Syrian War Report – April 24, 2017: Government Forces Liberate Large Areas In Northern Hama

Last weekend, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) continued loosing ground in the province of Hama. Government forces, led by the Tiger Forces and the 5th Assault Corps, liberated Halfaya, Al-Batish, Tall Batish, Zilaqiat, Al-Tarabiaa and Hisa, and secured the Mahardeh Power Plant. Government forces advanced in the villages of Buwaida, Masasinah where they were engaged in clashes with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS)-led forces.

Pro-militant sources argue that the “opposition” defenses collapsed in northern Hama as a result of a long artillery and air bombing campaign conducted by the Syrian Arab Army and the Russian Aerospace Forces.

The militant-held towns of Lataminah and Morek will likely become the next mid-term targets of the ongoing government offensive in northern Hama.

Latamihan is an important logistical hub of HTS and its allies used to resupply militant units operating in the area. In 2004, the town had population over 16,000 people. According to available information, militant military HQs and operation rooms as well as a high number of weapon depots are located in tunnels under the town.

If the Syrian Arab Army and its allies retake Lataminah, they will be shorten frontline and secure their recent gains in northern Hama. The problem is that Lataminah was a constant target of airstrikes in April and in late March. Thus, a notable part of the infrastructure of the town is already damaged. Its infrastructure will be further damaged if clashes erupt in the area.

In turn, Morek is strategically located along the Hama-Aleppo highway. In 2004, the town had population over 14,000 people.

The advance along this highway will allow government troops to outflank militant forces deployed in Lataminah and Kafrzita. If government forces are able to retake Morek, militants in Lataminah will be in a very complicated situation and will likely withdraw from the town like they already did in Halfaya.

The problem is that this operation will draw more resources than the direct advance on Lataminah. So, it will not be possible if ISIS launches some “unexpected” large-scale advance in the countryside of Palmyra or at the Ithriyah-Aleppo highway. The terrorist group has repeatedly did this de-facto assisting “moderate opposition” forces led by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.

If government forces don’t face an additional military pressure on the other frontlines from some tactical allies of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, they will likely continue to develop the advance in order to secure the whole northern countryside of Hama.

Hezbollah assassinates notorious Al-Qaeda booby trap chief near Lebanese border

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:45 P.M.) – According to Hezbollah’s media wing, an infamous jihadist commander of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS), identified Abu Qassem Al-Talleh, was killed by a roadside bomb planted by the Lebanese paramilitary group outside his base Kharbet Youneen area in Juroud Arsal.

Ironically, Abu Qassem Al-Talleh himself was known to be a mass producer of IED’s (improvised explosive devices) in the mountainous eastern Lebanese border region, frequently targeting government troops and Hezbollah during their patrols.

Although the jihadist car was virtually blown apart, the HTS chief’s assistant Abou Dujanah Al-Lebnani somehow managed to survive the IED attack although he was said to be in critical condition. Both held Lebanese passports but were wanted by the Lebanese government.

India, Pakistan to Become Full Fledged SCO Members

India, Pakistan to Become Full Fledged SCO Members

PETER KORZUN | 26.04.2017 | WORLD

India, Pakistan to Become Full Fledged SCO Members

The meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) member states wrapped up in Astana on April 21. The participants confirmed the unanimous decision to grant full-fledged membership to India and Pakistan at the SCO Astana summit on June 8-9, 2017.

The SCO was established in 2001 as a multi-purpose regional organization active in three main fields: economic, military-political and humanitarian. The SCO members now are Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Iran, Mongolia and Belarus are the SCO observer-countries, while Azerbaijan, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Armenia, Cambodia and Nepal are dialogue partners. Although Russia and China are the most important SCO members, the organization operates by consensus.

Since its formation, it annually brings together heads of states to discuss regional security issues and inter-regional cooperation. The SCO is gradually moving to the establishment of an economic integration union, including the creation of a free trade zone, bank and fund for development and strengthening of transport cooperation. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, Silk Road Fund and Silk Road Economic Belt projects have been launched to this end. Since its establishment, the SCO has concluded several wide-ranging agreements on security, trade and investment, connectivity, energy, the SCO Bank, culture, etc.

Meanwhile, Iran looks to be the next candidate in line for the full SCO membership. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov called for Iran’s speedy accession to the organization. He expressed hope that the upcoming summit would launch the procedure to admit Iran into the organization as a full member. If Iran joins the group, the SCO would control around a fifth of the world’s oil and represent nearly a half of the global population.

With the Iran nuclear deal in place and international sanctions lifted, there is no hurdle on the way to membership. The move would make Iran a partner of Russia and China, the two leading powers in the organization. The move is opposed by Tajikistan. Russia-mediated talks are on the way to remove the reasons for the objections.

Membership of India will add significant heft and muscle to the SCO, particularly in the backdrop of the global economic slowdown. India is the fastest expanding global economy today with an annual GDP growth of 7.5 percent. It represents the third largest economy ($8 trillion dollars) in PPP terms and 7th largest ($2.3 trillion dollars) in nominal dollar terms.

The Pakistani economy is the 24th-largest in the world in terms of purchasing power and the 41st-largest in terms of nominal GDP (World Bank). It is ranked among the emerging and growth-leading economies, and is backed by one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing middle classes.

Granting New Delhi and Islamabad the status of full SCO member states in the near future will make the organization a global (Trans-Asian) political structure. It will boost the group’s potential and provide a fresh impetus to further securing its role on the regional and international arena. The accession will bring together three largest and most powerful Eurasian states and four nuclear powers. With the integration of new members, the group will unite 50 percent of Eurasian territory, 43 percent of the population on the planet and 24 percent of global GDP. Just think about it! The SCO will become a regional organization covering the widest land area with the biggest population in the world.

True, India and Pakistan have a history of conflict and are at loggerheads over security issues. The membership will help build bridges. The territorial disputes and nuclear arms will remain, but the very fact of being united in the same organization pursuing common goals will help them start a dialogue. For instance, all SCO members are interested in addressing the problem of Afghanistan. India and Pakistan can make a big contribution to finding proper solutions.

The fantasy of Indian and Pakistani military participating together in a joint SCO military exercise would become reality and a landmark event. Having joined, both countries will enjoy greater access to resources and energy import projects within the grouping’s framework. They will play their cards strongly with other multilateral donors including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Asian Development Bank.

The two nations are seeking greater engagement in the Eurasian region. Central Asian countries are rich in hydrocarbons to make them attractive for energy-starved India and Pakistan. Both New Delhi and Islamabad are pushing ahead with infrastructure projects aimed at deepening their connectivity to the region. India is developing the Chabahar port in Iran that would grant it land access to Afghanistan and Eurasia. Islamabad is resting its hopes on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) – a plan to develop Pakistani infrastructure and broaden economic links with the help of China.

The new members’ accession could be a prelude to the formation of large Eurasian partnership. Over the 16 years of its existence, the SCO has become a consolidated, full-fledged, and very influential international association fully independent from the influence of the West, offering an alternative to the outdated vision of a unipolar world dominated by the US.

Warning from Russia over May & Fallon’s “first strike” threat

British Government Declares Willingness To Launch Nuclear War

Her Majesty’s UK Government is prepared to launch a first strike with nuclear weapons under undeclared circumstances, Defense Minister Sir Michael Fallon stated emphatically today on BBC Radio 4’s “Today” program.
After Its Nuclear Attack, the UK Would be `Wiped Off the Face of the Earth`

British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon recently confirmed that his Prime Minister Theresa May is prepared to use nuclear weapons in a first strike attack in “the most extreme circumstances.” Commenting on the remark, Russian parliamentarian Frants Klintsevich warned of the devastating consequences of such an action.

On Monday, British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon confirmed that his Prime Minister Theresa May “is prepared to launch Trident in the most extreme circumstances”, as a first strike attack, even if Britain itself was not under nuclear attack.The comments came during an interview with Britain’s “Today” program on BBC Radio Four.

“In the most extreme circumstances we have made it very clear that you can’t rule out the use of nuclear weapons as a first strike,” the UK’s defense chief said.

When asked in what circumstances, he replied: “They are better not specified or described, which would only give comfort to our enemies and make the deterrent less credible.”

“The whole point about the deterrent is that you have got to leave uncertainty in the mind of anyone who might be thinking of using weapons against this country,” Michael Fallon added.

The comments apparently come in response to the remarks of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who signaled he would not launch attacks and could scrap the Trident deterrent.

Trident is the UK’s nuclear missile system designed as a deterrent to stop foreign powers attacking Britain and its allies.The name refers to the missiles which are carried by four Vanguard class submarines, which have up to eight nuclear warheads each.

Commenting on the remarks, Russian parliamentarian Frants Klintsevich, first deputy chairman of the defense committee in Russia’s upper house of parliament, the Federation Council, said that it “deserves a tough answer”, and that he is not afraid to “overdo it.”

“At best, Fallon’s threat should be viewed as a type of ‘psychological warfare,’ which in this context is an especially disgusting menace. Otherwise, this looks particularly bad as the question naturally arises: who is it that the UK is ready to preemptively use nuclear weapons against?” reads Klintsevich’s comment on his Facebook page.

“If Britain attacks a nuclear power, it will be “literally wiped off the face of the earth by a responsive strike given its not-too-vast territory,” the post further reads.

“However, if it is against a non-nuclear power, the UK seems to be after the US’ ‘laurels’ which dropped down nuclear bombs on the defenseless [Japanese cities] of Hiroshima and Nagasaki [in 1945],” he added.

In a separate comment on the issue, Alexei Leonkov, a military expert and commercial director of “Arsenal of the Fatherland” magazine also suggested that the UK is following Washington’s example.

Earlier in April, the NBC News channel reported, citing “multiple senior US intelligence officials” that “the US is prepared to launch a preemptive strike with conventional weapons against North Korea should officials become convinced that North Korea is about to follow through with a nuclear weapons test.”

“Every country has its “list of threats” after which nuclear weapons should be applied irrevocably. With regards to a preemptive strike, only two countries have recently claimed that they are ready to use it for such a purpose, it is the US and North Korea,” Leonkov told Radio Sputnik.

He further explained that now the UK has joined the two. London might soon voice its “list of threats” on which it will use its nuclear weapons, but before voicing it to the world, it should be agreed upon in parliament as the country’s nuclear doctrine
