Syria UN Envoy: US Uses Chemical Attack Claims to Protect Terrorists

Local Editor

Syria's UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari

Damascus said the accusations leveled by the US and its allies against the Syrian government regarding the use of chemical weapons in the Eastern Ghouta region are meant to protect the terrorist groups and block the army’s advance against foreign-backed militants.

In an interview with Russia’s Sputnik news agency released on Friday, Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari said the parties supporting terrorism in Syria have “consistently” used the “false” allegations of chemical weapons use as a pretext to increase political pressure on the Syrian government.

In over 140 letters addressed to the UN Security Council and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Damascus has documented information on the possession of chemical materials by the countries that support terrorists, but the data was deliberately ignored, he pointed out.

Recently, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claimed a suspected chlorine attack had taken place in the militant-occupied al-Shifuniyah village of Eastern Ghouta on February 25.

Prior to the report, the Russian Defense Ministry had warned that militant groups in Eastern Ghouta were preparing a false flag attack in a bid to blame the Syrian government for using chemical weapons against civilians.

Russia rejected the allegations against the Syrian government as “unfounded,” stressing that only an international body can rule on the issue based on an “impartial” probe.

On March 5, The Washington Post quoted US officials as saying that the government was considering new military action against the Syrian government in response to reports of suspected chemical weapons use.

Britain and France have also said they would attack Syria if such claims are proven.

This is while Syria turned over its entire chemical stockpile under a deal negotiated by Russia and the US back in 2013.

Elsewhere in his interview, Jaafari accused Saudi Arabia and Qatar as well as a number of Gulf regimes of having worked to finance terrorist organizations in Syria and fuel the crisis in the Arab country.

He also said that the Turkish government has facilitated the entry of tens of thousands of terrorists via its border to Syria and armed and financed them.

Turkey also set up training camps on its territory for terrorists and facilitated their access to toxic chemicals, he added.

Referring to Turkey’s military campaign on the Syrian district of Afrin, Jaafari said, “Syria will not hesitate in defending every inch of its territory, whether against armed terrorist groups or the invading Turkish, US or Israeli forces.”

Ankara launched the Afrin operation on January 20 to eliminate Kurdish militants. Syria condemned the Turkish campaign as an act of aggression, which is meant to support terror outfits operating inside the conflict-plagued country.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is making their final preparations for what is expected to be their largest offensive of 2018.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces have arrived in the eastern part of Damascus after making the long journey from the southeastern countryside of the Idlib Governorate.

 The Tiger Forces joined the Syrian Army’s elite 4th Division, which has already deployed to the East Ghouta’s Al-Nashabiyah and Harasta fronts.

While the Syrian Army’s Central Command has yet to announce which front the Tiger Forces will deploy to, it is expected that they will lead the charge to clear the Harasta suburb.

In particular, the Tiger Forces will likely deploy to the vehicle management base, where they will help reopen supply lines to the installation and push back the jihadist rebels of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham.

This battle for east Damascus is expected to commence in the coming days, as the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) concludes their aerial campaign over the East Ghouta region.

Syria’s greatest military hero: The killer of Adnan Aqlea

Brigadier General Mostafa Kamel Hammad of the Syrian Arab Army (1942 – 1988)

BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:10 P.M.) – War is an art, especially wars conducted at the intelligence level. Such wars require different methods to the ordinary conflicts between armed forces.

The Syrian war against groups of the Muslim Brotherhood started in the early 1980s and one of the Syrian generals who had a crucial role in obliterating the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria was Brigadier General Mostafa Kamel Hammad.

Early life

Mostafa Kamel Hammad was born in 1942 in the town of Oghiq in the province of Aleppo to a Sunni family. In 1960 he joined the Syrian Military Academy in Homs. Brigadier General Mostafa Kamel Hammad was married to a lady from Al-Yassen in Latakia, and had 4 kids; 3 daughters and a son.

Role in obliterating the Muslim Brotherhood

Hammad was approached by a captain who was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood Cpt. Fawzi al-Ghazawi in 1982 to help the movement arm itself for what they called “Zero Hour” but Brigadier General, bound by his military code, informed the high command of a plot that was being put into place. In turn, he was order to bring the traitors into a trap that was set to them in the officer’s club in Tartous; he set about this task.

Hammad invited Muslim Brotherhood conspirators to the officer’s club – ostensibly for further planning and coordination. Here, Syrian military intelligence arrested the conspirators and sent them to an infamous desert prison in Palmyra where they confessed to the charges of their relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood and of plotting against the Syrian state.

After their confession, and their guilt of high treason they were executed by Brigadier General Hammad in accordance with military law; their names were added to the so-called ‘List of Shame.’

Afterwards, the brigadier general resumed his task in discovering and eliminating traitors within the ranks of the Syrian military; he was to discovered hundreds of them. In this pursuit he managed to capture and later executed around 400 ranks who were found guilty of high treason – among them Adnan Aqlea, who was captured in an intelligence operation that will be shared later.


After graduating the Syrian Military Academy, Hammad worked as an instructor in the armed forces school. A number of highly-ranked and placed Syrian officers were trained by him such as the Director of the Syrian Military Intelligence General Mohammad Mahla, the Commander of the Syrian 3rd Corps General Mohammad Khaddour and the Syrian Minister of Interior General Mohammad al-Sha’ar.

Generally, intelligence operations are different and more complex and the Muslim Brotherhood group had indeed infiltrated into the ranks of the Syrian military.

But perhaps one of the Brotherhood’s biggest mistakes was attempting to recruit Brigadier General Hammad after assuming that since he is a Sunni and not a member of al-Ba’ath political party he will unquestionably join their ranks. When they approached him, they gave him a financial bribe and a promise of a higher more powerfully placed rank in the Syrian military after their success.

However, Hammad rushed to inform the commander of the Syrian Military Intelligence at the time General Ghazi Kan’aan; who in turn sent him to meet with General Ali Duba and then he met with late Commander in Chief President Hafiz al-Assad.

Commander in Chief issued his orders to transfer Hammad from the Syrian military to the Syrian intelligence where he was appointed deputy director of the Syrian Military Intelligence in Latakia in 1983.


On day in 1988 during duty, Brigadier General Mostafa Kamel Hammad was heading to the National Hospital in Homs and a bus driver collided with his car killing him instantly, later Syrian intelligence detained the bus driver and during the investigation he admitted to  belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood movement.


Brigadier General Mostafa Kamel Hammad managed a lot of military operations and he was well known for his heroic stands, he treated his soldiers as brothers and stood up with them during the worst situations, using his skills, strength and experience Brigadier General Mostafa Kamel Hammad had a major role in eliminating the Muslim Brotherhood militia in Syria inside and outside the Syrian Arab Army, he left a big influence to everyone who knew him, and until today Brigadier General Mostafa Kamel Hammad is an icon to follow in the Syrian Arab Army.

[Graphic 18+] Saudi Coalition suffers heavy losses after seizing strategic Yemeni city


BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 P.M.) – The Saudi Coalition attempted to advance past the strategic city of Hays on Tuesday, targeting the mountains overlooking this important area of western Yemen.

Led by the UAE-backed Southern Resistance forces, the Coalition troops attempted to capture the Hays Mountain from the Houthi fighters protecting this imperative area.

However, the assault would be short-lived, as the Houthi troops proved too strong at the Hays Mountain.

According to the official media wing of the Houthi forces, their fighters killed several Coalition fighters, while also seizing the latter’s weapons before they retreated to Hays city.

Below are the photos that the Houthi forces released from the battle:

South Front

Ground forces backed by the Saudi-led coalition operating in Yemen have faced a major internal crisis over the control for the strategic coastal city of Aden. In January, the UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) and Shabwan Elite Forces (SEF) launched a series of operations against forces loyal to Saudi-backed President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi.

Since then, the SEF and the STC have captured a major part of Aden, including the nearby military facilities, as well as the city of Ataq, the capital of the province of Shabwah. Pro-Hadi forces were not able to put up a significant resistance to their opponents even with air support from the Saudi Arabia’s air force.

Thus, the UAE and its allies on the ground further expanded its influence in southern Yemen while the Saudi-backed Yemen government was put on the verge of the collapse. The Yemeni capital, Sanaa, is controlled by the Houthis. So, President Hadi and the Saudi-backed government used Aden as own capital.

In early February, the sides formally reached the ceasefire in Aden. Nonetheless, sporadic clashes continued in the city and across the southern part of the country.

Some source say that the main reason of tensions is an ill-advised policy of Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr and his cabinet. However, it is clear that the real reason behind the tensions is ongoing competition for the spheres of the influence between various factions of the so-called Saudi-led coalition.

Furthermore, Aden lies at the cross-section of multiple trade routes and has a high economic importance serving as a key logistical hub in the area.

The STC was formed by the Southern Movement, a political movement and paramilitary organization active in the former territory of the state known as South Yemen. The political goal of the movement is to secede from the Republic of Yemen and to establish an independent state.

On February 5, the London-based newspaper al-Araby al-Jadeed reported that STC Head, Aidarus al-Zubaidi, departed Aden to visit the UAE capital Abu Dhabi and the Saudi capital Riyadh. The visits show the growing influence of the STC amid the developing conflict in Yemen.

On the same day, the Saudi military claimed that it had intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Houthis from the Yemen province of Sa’adah at the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait. The Houthis continue using ballistic missiles to pound facilities of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen as well as targets inside Saudi Arabia. This shows that efforts of the Saudi-led coalition to destroy stockpiles and arms depots of the Houthis across the country resulted in little effect, most likely because of a lack of the reconnaissance on the ground.

Another important threat is cross-borders attacks by the Houthis. For example, on February 3, seven Saudi military service members were killed in cross-border attacks in the Saudi province of Jizan and Najran. On February 2, the Houthis attacks Saudi-led forces in the village of al-Khadra in the province of Jizan and destroyed at least three vehicles. Such attacks reveal a poor security situation at the Saudi-Yemeni border.

On the other hand, the Saudi-led coalition and its local allies were able to develop momentum against the Houthis in the area of Taiz and south of the port city of Hudaydah. Right now, the most intense fighting is ongoing west of Taiz.

ماالذي تغير أم .. ماالذي لم يتغير؟؟

بقلم نارام سرجون

اذا كنت ممن عاصروا كل تفاصيل الربيع العربي – وأزعم اننا جميعا عاصرنا كل يوم مشؤوم فيه – فانك عندما تستمع الى هذه القطعة من خطاب للزعيم الراحل جمال عبد الناصر تحس أنك مشوش جدا ولاتدري هل جرفتك آلة الزمن وخطفتك الى الخلف ستين عاما أم ان ماتعيشه اليوم هو معركة في سلسلة معارك لها هدف واحد طوال ستين عاما هو الاستيلاء على سورية وتقاسمها بين تركيا وأميريكا .. فتركيا العثمانية أو العلمانية تنظر الى سورية على انها الابن الضال الذي تجب استعادته أو أنها رض الأجداد التي يجب ان تستعاد ..

وكما لم يتغير الهدف والمستهدف (أو الصيدة وفق لغة صاحب نظرية نحن نعاج) فان أدوات التنفيذ لم تتغير اطلاقا .. فتركيا طرف متحمس جدا وفعال .. والبوابة العراقية نحو سورية كانت دوما مفضلة للولوج الى سورية سواء كان ذلك الولوج عن طريق حكم نوري السعيد أو حكم ابي بكر البغدادي خليفة داعش .. وطبعا لابد من دور سعودي في اي مؤامرة في المنطقة .. فالمؤامرات من غير النكهة والدسم والسمن والسم السعودي ليس لها مذاق ولاتعتبر كاملة الاوصاف ..

واليوم نفس المتآمرين مهما غيروا من الثياب والألقاب وربطات العنق والعباءات سواء قصروا اللحى أم أطلقوها .. ومهما غيروا الاقنعة الجمهورية والديمقراطية والاسلامية والعلمانية .. الثلاثي الشرير تركيا وأميريكا وعرب اميريكا هم أنفسهم يعيدون الكرة للسطو على سورية فيما تنتظر اسرائيل حصتها من جهد هذا الثلاثي .. وهذه المرة ليس عن طريق حلف بغداد أو ربيع بغداد بل عن طريق الربيع العربي ..

ولك ان تلاحظ أيها المشدوه والذي اصابك التشوش واختلطت عليك الايام وتداخلت فيها المؤتمرات الاسلامية .. لاحظ أن اميريكا وفق هذا الخطاب للزعيم المصري عبد الناصر كانت تصرح بأشياء وتنكر أشياء ليتبين لاحقا أن ماأنكرته هو ماكانت تعمل عليه وأن ما ادعته هو مالم تلتزم به بل وانها هي صاحبة فكرة المؤتمرات الاسلامية وهي التي تتلاعب بها وبالاسلام والمسلمين ولاتكاد فتوى تصدر الا وتمر على مدير السي آي ايه .. ولايعقد مؤتمر اسلامي الا وتكتب توصياته في وزارة الخارجية الأمريكية .. تماما كما يحدث اليوم فهي تتفرج ببراءة على ثرثرات اتحاد علماء المسلمين القطري ودعوات لمؤتمرات اسلامية لاتعد ولاتحصى لنصرة الاسلام ونصرة أهل السنة .. وتتصنع موقف المدهوش الذي يهز رأسه تعجبا من كثرة المؤتمرات الدينية المليئة بلغة العنف والتطرف لنكتشف لاحقا أن كل هذا الاسلام الورع والنشط والقلق على أهل السنة مصنوع ومطبوخ في اميريكا وفي مطبخ هيلاري كلينتون وربما شاركت مونيكا لوينسكي في اعداده وتقشيره وسلقه وتقديمه مع الخضار الديمقراطية ..

وأميريكا أيضا تقول انها تحارب داعش ولكنها هي التي أحيتها وبعثتها .. وتحييها وتبعثها كلما ضربتها سيوف روسية وسورية .. وهي التي تعلن حرصها على سلامة ووحدة الاراضي السورية لكنها في الحقيقة تريد باصرار تمزيق الجغرافيا وتريد أن تغوص سكينها في قلب الأرض السورية لتغرف من الأرض كما يغرف لص بمغرفة من وعاء طعام مسروق ..

ومع ذلك فاسمح لي عزيزي القارئ بأن اقول بان المشروع الذي بدأ عام 57 وبقي ينتظر قد تم اطلاقه في أحدث نماذجه وأخطرها وأقساها وأشرسها في الربيع العربي .. ولكنه تلقى ضربة قاسية جدا .. ولكن المشروع سيبقى يكرر محاولاته للاستيلاء على سورية .. ولن يتوقف الى أن نكسر أحد أضلاعه الثلاثة الشريرة .. اميريكا أو اسرائيل .. تركيا .. السعودية وعرب اميريكا .. وقد صار بمقدورنا اليوم مع حلفائنا أن نكسر أحد أضلاع هذا الثالوث الشيطاني .. ثقتي بذلك لايداخلها شك .. فالاضلاع صارت هشة بعد أن نخرتها الهزائم والانتكاسات والخيبات .. على الارض السورية ..
