Biden is prepared to cut Assad some slack where there are obvious benefits to U.S. interests in the region

Ten years after protesters in an obscure Syrian town demonstrated for change, a direct challenge to the rule of President Bashar al-Assad, half a million Syrians dead and a 100,000 missing, finally the West is accepting the legitimacy of the regime and its leader.

It started with the Gulf Arabs, who have decided that Assad is worth more as an ally – both as a useful expert on defying the odds and suppressing an entire uprising but also for his Midas touch with the Russians who GCC leaders might have to turn to one day, if a new Arab Spring sweeps across the Peninsular.

But then inevitably Joe Biden, whose approach to the Middle East is to have as little to do with it as possible in preference for a foreign policy agenda focussing on China, is following through with this initiative to bring Assad in from the cold once and for all. Intense lobbying in recent month by, in particular the UAE and Saudi Arabia in Washington have paid off and we are witnessing the first tentative steps towards a normalisation of relations with the Syrian leader.

You might have missed the signs as they were not seized upon by western media. The lifting of sanctions against a businessman associated with Assad, followed just recently by allowing Syria to facilitate a gas and electricity to Lebanon – from Egypt, via Jordan and Syria – in what has been called “energy diplomacy” – are clear indications that Biden is prepared to cut Assad some slack where there are obvious benefits to U.S. interests in the region.

It would be hard to imagine that two key decisions in the regime’s favour – Interpol allowing Syria arrest warrant rights and for the WHO to give Syria a seat on its executive board – were not given the tacit approval of the Biden administration. Given that Interpol now is obliged to arrest anyone of the thousands of Syrian dissidents living around the world, or that Assad’s Syria today is a country of people starving while billions of dollars of drugs are being manufactured there, the shift is significant.

Pragmatism seems to be kicking in. The West has lost its own proxy war against the Syrian dictator and there is a general feeling now of working more with Assad and cutting our losses. The war is over, except for Idlib province where Russia fights Turkey-backed extremists and perhaps ten years later the general public who vote in western leaders have educated themselves and learnt a few of the nuances of the ten year battle to overthrow Assad, dressed up as a war against terror; these days, there are pockets of online pundits in both America and the UK who understand that Assad’s forces were allies in fact with the West, in their war against Al Qaeda and its affiliates – a nuanced detail regularly over looked or not even understood by MSM in America.

But what could Biden gain by signalling this shift and stopping short of going the full nine yards himself and lifting all sanctions? Or rather, is it more what he won’t lose?

Lebanon’s meltdown, which saw just this week a total blackout of electricity, is part of it. As Iran wasted no time sending fuel to this tiny country which in recent months has undergone massive shortages and long lines at the pumps, Biden does not want to be the U.S. president whose tenure in office is tarnished by letting Lebanon fall into the abyss and become a full-on Iranian colony, to join Syria, Iraq and Yemen as a fully signed up member of the axis of resistance to U.S. hegemony.

Yet it was a perceived threat to America’s hegemony which assisted the Muslim Brotherhood attempted overthrow of Assad in the first place, which is where this all started. Assad himself must be delighted with how history has done a full circle on him. Despite a country with a destroyed economy and people on the brink of starvation, politically perhaps at his lowest point, he has to only look to the future to see where all this is heading. In recent days, King Abdullah of Jordan made some headlines for having a secret overseas stash of a mere hundred million dollars (small change compared to his Gulf neighbours). He also telephoned President Assad, a man who he had defamed quite spectacularly before and wooed him, talking of the “brotherly” countries and signalling to the Syrian leader that he was ready to welcome him back as a friend and a neighbour. And so, with Syria almost certainly destined to be reinstated at the mother of all talk-lunch-sleep shops, otherwise known as the Arab League, it is probably only a matter of time before Biden moves up a notch the sanctions relief, hoping that this new Syria strategy will give him leverage with the Iranians at the negotiating table in Vienna over the so-called Iran Deal. This is the real story, in reality. Biden badly needs to stop sinking in the Iranian quagmire and showing some peripheral support for Syria is expected to earn him some points. It’s as though we’ve gone back to 2007 with Nancy Pelosi and her “let’s use Assad to control people we don’t normally talk to” approach which almost got the Syrian president “buddy” status in Washington. Almost.

Sayyed Nasrallah to ’Israel’: We’ll Act Appropriately if Our Oil is in Danger, Palestine Muslims’ Main Cause

Sayyed Nasrallah to ’Israel’: We’ll Act Appropriately if Our Oil is in Danger, Palestine Muslims’ Main Cause

By Al-Ahed news

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Friday night a speech in which he tackled various regional and internal topics.

Addressing thousands of people in Dahyieh [Southern Suburb of Beirut], Sayyed Nasrallah congratulated the Muslim world on the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH], and his grandson Imam Jaafar al-Sadiq [AS], and the Muslim Unity Week.

The Prophet of Mercy&Unity

On the event of celebration, His Eminence explained that “Among the blessings of Imam Khomeini and the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran is the point that appears to be creating disputes, which he turned to a point of unity when he called to labelling the period between the 12th and 17th of Rabiul Awwal as a Muslim Unity Week [between Sunni & Shia Muslims].”

“We must get to know Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] to be our model in life; and we cannot get to know Islam or the Muslim Sharia law without getting to know this prophet, his behavior, words and biography,” he added.

In parallel, the Resistance Leader underscored that “There is an Ummah [nation] which Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] has brought from the darkness of ignorance, dispersion, illiteracy, and getting lost through building a state for Islam, and conveying the divine religion and the eternal message.”

Sayyed Nasrallah further highlighted that “Among Prophet Mohammad [PBUH]’s achievements was that he altered the view towards humanity, in which he annulled all values of ignorance and applied the Islamic system; the Quran confronted looking to women as inferiors and praised them instead.”

“No inner peace was present during the Age of Ignorance. People were killed or attacked for any reason,” he stated, noting that “The Messenger of Allah achieved an inner peace that can’t be even imposed by police or army. It was a peace from within minds, hearts, and souls made by culture and piety.”

Meanwhile, His Eminence clarified that “The humankind is responsible for their countries, people, lands, honors and dignities of people once attacked. This is the religion of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH].”

“Those who are mostly praised by Allah are the ones who know the rights of their brothers and try their best to satisfy such rights,” Hezbollah Secretary General confirmed.

Palestine Main Cause

Moving to the regional front, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated that “The top priority and responsibility among Muslims is Palestine with its opressed people, detainees , refugees and violated sanctities that every human being must be concerned about.”

“Among the most important battles any person can engage in against normalization is to boycott ‘Israel’,” he emphaized, pointing out that “Funding the Palestinian Resistance is a great responsibility that Arabs, Muslims and humans must shoulder.”
Normalization with “Israel”

On the same level, His Eminence hailed the “Bahraini youth- who protested normalization with ‘Israel’- given the fact that they faced the police crackdown and are fully aware of the repercussions of their support of Palestine.”

“The position of the Bahraini scholars as well as Yemen and its people in denouncing normalization and supporting Palestine is an expression of commitment to the Islamic duty and responsibility,” he stressed, noting that “The US and some Arab regimes want our Arab and Muslim people to eliminate even this hatred through cementing normalization. They want us to love and praise ‘Israel’.”

Sayyed Nasrallah also underlined that “The conference of normalization in Erbil was a trial that if not blasted, it would have been followed by similar conspiracies.”

In addition, the Resistance Leader viewed that “Announcing a cease-fire in Yemen while the siege in place means the continuation of the war,” denouncing the fact that “Instead of condemning the victim in Yemen, the international community must listen to the popular will of the millions of Yemenis.”

Brutal Daesh

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah said that “It is strange and surprising that some sides remain silent regarding Daesh’s [Arabic Acronym for the terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL group] brutal crimes.”

“Islamic unity means cooperation, rapprochement and integration among Muslims and avoiding fighting among them,” he reminded, lamenting the fact that “It is unfortunate what Daesh has achieved in the name of the Prophet Muhammad [PBUH], while the Americans say that they’ve created Daesh, and there are those who do not want to listen.”

Clarifying that “Muslims have triumphed in all arenas where they cooperated and united with each other,” His Eminence mentioned that “The greatest responsibility on Muslim scholars and elites is to prevent any action that could lead to sedition.”

In response, Sayyed Nasrallah urged the “continued political, popular, and media condemnation of all those who were about to push Lebanon towards strife,” pointing out that “The resistance in Lebanon emerged victorious by cooperation and collaboration, and the resistance in Palestine wins when it is united on the internal and external fronts  with the axis of resistance.”

A Sounding Message to “Israel”

Regarding the bloody massacre in Tayouneh, His Eminence underlined that “Hezbollah is following up with the investigation, which is good and brave.”

On the issue of border demarcation, Hezbollah Secretary General declared that his party  “won’t say anything related to the land and maritime border demarcation, which is left to the Lebanese state.” 

“The ‘Israeli’ enemy is illusional if it thinks that it can act freely in the disputed maritinme area before reaching a firm conclusion,” Sayyed Nasrallah announced, noting that “At the appropriate time, when the resistance sees that Lebanon’s oil is in danger, it will act on this basis.”

On another level, His Eminence stated We don’t have any problem in the issue of the Hezbollah has no problem with “negotiating with the International Monetary Fund and we hope that Lebanon would send one united and real delegation.”
“The wealthy have responsibilities towards those who are under the line of poverty, and tradesmen shouldn’t monopolize the goods or raise the prices,” he concluded.

Terrorist Attack Targets a Bus in Damascus Kills 14 and Injures 3 Others

 ARABI SOURI 

Terrorist attack targets a bus in Damascus - Syria

A terrorist attack shook the city center of Damascus targeting a bus at the busiest President’s Bridge intersection on the Shoukry Al-Qouwatly Road at the morning peak time.

The explosion was caused by detonating 2 IEDs (improvised explosive devices) plastered on the bus, the bomb squad managed to defuse a 3rd IED.

A Syrian military spokesperson detailed in a statement:

At approximately 6:45 this morning, during the passage of a military overnight bus in the city of #Damascus near the President’s bridge, the bus was targeted by a terrorist attack with two explosive devices that were previously attached to the bus, which led to the death of fourteen martyrs and a number of wounded, the engineering personnel dismantled a 3rd device that fell off from the bus after the explosion.

The video is also on BitChute.

US-sponsored terrorists prefer to target buses carrying soldiers on their way home when they’re mostly unarmed or in relaxed attention and disregarding the area where they carry out their explosions, they prefer to cause casualties among the civilians as well to spread panic and fear as well, rarely would the US-sponsored Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists attack Syrian Army soldiers face to face, only when one of their anti-Islamic Wahhabi suicide bombers would blow himself up in an armored vehicle.

The Minister of Interior in Syria vowed to ‘pursue the terrorists who committed this heinous crime wherever they are’ hinting that not only the Syrian state will defeat the terrorists inside the country, it will also go after their sponsors around the world by all means allowed by international law.

Terrorist attack targets a bus in Damascus - Syria

The escalation of terrorist attacks against the Syrian state and the Syrian people is expected after the US and its evil camp of ‘democracy and freedoms exporters’ failed to win in Syria despite the hundreds of billions of dollars they wasted and the tens of thousands of terrorists they used, even their own bombing of the country throughout the past 10.5 years in order to ‘bring up a democracy they approve’ instead of the popular president who overwhelmingly won the 2014 and 2021 elections.

All the sacrifices by the Syrian people throughout the decade of blood and fire waged against them will not go in vain now after managing to change the world’s power balance for the first time since the same US-led camp managed to dismantle the USSR 3 decades ago, these terrorist attacks will only prove how desperate and weak the empire has reached in pushing its goals and ‘the price is worth it’ for knocking off the USA as the only superpower in the global arena, it’s becoming closer now.

Marib Liberation ‘A Milestone’ In Battle to Expel Occupiers, Free Oil Wealth – Ansarullah

October 12, 2021

Marib Liberation ‘A Milestone’ In Battle to Expel Occupiers, Free Oil Wealth - Ansarullah

By Staff, Agencies

A senior member of the political bureau of Yemen’s Ansarullah resistance movement said the liberation of the strategic central province of Marib will mark an important “milestone” in the battle to expel the occupiers and retake the country’s energy resources seized by the Saudi-led military coalition and its allied militants.

“The liberation of Marib will have significant impacts on [efforts to] expel occupation forces and return oil wealth” to the country, Mohammed al-Bukhaiti told Beirut-based al-Mayadeen television news network on Tuesday night.

Al-Bukhaiti said the Saudi-led coalition of aggressors runs a key command center in Marib, which is tasked with directing the operations against the Yemeni armed forces and “that is why the liberation of the rest of Marib constitutes a major objective for Yemen and will mark a milestone and the start of a new phase” in the Yemeni army’s liberation struggles.

He added that Yemeni army troops and fighters from Popular Committees will soon mount a major operation against Saudi-led coalition forces and their mercenaries.

Al-Bukhaiti said the Saudi-led coalition’s air power will not last long, and the Yemeni armed forces continue to strengthen their military capabilities.

“We tell those involved in the fighting with the coalition that we do not want to target them,” said al-Bukhaiti, apparently addressing the militants serving the Saudi-led coalition on the battle ground. Besides foreign mercenaries, many Yemeni militants loyal to the former Riyadh-friendly government Sanaa have been serving the Saudi-led campaign.

The balance of power is tilting in favor of Yemen and the country will enter a new phase once enemy forces are defeated, he said.

“The Sanaa initiative is still on the table” Bukhaiti said, calling on Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to “quickly seize the opportunity and embrace peace.”

“Yemen’s goals are defensive at present, but the objectives of the battles may change as time passes,” he said.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Spokesman for Yemeni Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yehya Saree, said in a press conference that Yemeni armed forces had made significant territorial gains in Marib Province, seizing control over large swaths of territory from Saudi-backed mercenaries.

Saree said the latest military operation dubbed Fajr al-Intisaar [Dawn of Victory], which came in the wake of a series of attacks by Saudi-backed aggressors in recent days, was launched after the success of the previous operation dubbed al-Bass al-Shadid to liberate Marib strategic province from the grip of Saudi-sponsored Takfiris.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched the war on Yemen in March 2015, with the goal of bringing the government of former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi back to power and crushing popular Ansarullah resistance movement.

The war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. It has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases.

Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees, however, have grown steadily in strength against the Saudi-led invaders, and left Riyadh and its allies bogged down in the country.

Yemeni Resistance Makes Rapid Advances in Marib, Inflicts Heavy Losses Upon Saudi Mercenaries

Yemeni Resistance Makes Rapid Advances in Marib, Inflicts Heavy Losses Upon Saudi Mercenaries

By Staff, Agencies

The Yemeni Armed Forces and allied popular committees have made significant territorial gains in the strategic Marib province, seizing control over large swaths of territory from the Saudi-backed mercenaries.

In a press conference on Tuesday, Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman, Brigadier General Yehya Saree revealed details of the military operation dubbed ‘Fajr Al-Intisaar’ [Dawn of Victory], which came in the wake of a series of attacks by Saudi-backed aggressors in recent days.

The official said the latest military operation was launched after the success of the previous operation to liberate the strategic province from the Saudi-backed mercenaries.

“With the participation of various military units, the Mujahideen began to carry out the plan that necessitated the attack on the enemy from several sides, before the main sides branched out into several other sub-sides,” Saree posted on his Twitter later.

“Every mercenary, agent, traitor can save his life and leave his position as our forces advance, our forces will allow him to escape and leave even if he is carrying his personal weapon,” he added.

Saree also noted that the Yemeni army in the latest offensive had liberated an area spanning 600 sq km from the enemy forces, and that it was inching closer to the provincial capital, 75 miles east of the capital Sanaa.

The forces loyal to Yemen’s national salvation government in the early hours of Tuesday made inroads into several areas in the city of al-Juba, while continuing advances toward the cities of al-Jadid, al-Rawda and other adjoining areas in the oil-rich Marib province.

The fresh offensive launched by the Yemeni government forces inflicted heavy casualties and collateral damage on the Saudi-backed camp, which includes the al-Qaeda fighters, reports said.

In al-Abdiyah, Yemeni government forces took control of the areas of Kharafan and al-Hijla, while pushing back the demoralized enemy forces after killing their top-rung leaders.

In a humanitarian gesture, the government forces also announced that the wounded mercenaries besieged in al-Abdiyah would be allowed to leave the area to receive medical treatment in Sanaa.

“Any mercenary who leaves the battlefield will be given a chance to survive,” Saree told reporters, stressing that strict instructions were given to government forces not to kill the wounded.

The spokesman also noted that the operations to fully liberate areas currently under enemy control in the central Yemeni province will continue, hailing the resilience shown by people in the face of draconian sanctions and a crippling blockade.

“Freedom is possible only by rejecting foreign occupying forces and cleansing our land from the filth of the aggressors and their allies,” Saree remarked, adding that the Saudi-led coalition forces had carried out 948 airstrikes, targeting civilian homes and roads, during the latest operation.

The “most notable” result of the operation, Saree stressed, was the liberation of the geographical area in the previous operation dubbed “Al Bass Al Shadeed,” looking down upon Marib city, and shooting down 6 US-made spy fighter planes and 11 spy planes.

He said the shooting down of enemy planes “created fear in the ranks of aggressors”, preventing more strikes.

Giving further details about the operation, the military spokesman said the missile unit had carried out 68 offensives, targeting enemy bases, barracks and headquarters, out of which 49 offensives were carried out in the occupied territories of Yemen and 19 deep inside the Saudi territory.

The offensive from the Yemeni government forces came after relentless attacks in recent days by the Saudi-backed aggressors in the province, which damaged residential properties and farms and rendered hundreds of people homeless.

Ever since some regions in the strategic province of Marib, which sits at a crossroads between the southern and northern regions, were liberated by the Yemeni forces recently, Saudi Arabia and its allies have significantly stepped up their military aggression.

The six-year foreign-imposed war has killed tens of thousands of people in Yemen, according to global relief agencies.

The UN children’s agency UNICEF describes the war as “a living hell” for children, with 1.8 million under-fives suffering severe malnutrition.

While Saudi-led allies have lost much of the territory they had occupied following the 2015 invasion, Yemeni armed forces and the allied popular committees have grown in strength.

Saudi Arabia Involved in Providing Weapons to Al-Qaeda, Daesh in Yemen – International Reports

Saudi Arabia Involved in Providing Weapons to Al-Qaeda, Daesh in Yemen - International Reports

By Staff, Agencies

International reports revealed a resounding scandal involving Saudi princes, through private companies affiliated with them, in arms deals that reached from Serbia to the takfiri organization of Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group] in Yemen.

The report indicated that on September 1, 2020, Salman bin Abdulaziz issued a royal order relieving Fahd bin Turki bin Abdulaziz from his position as commander of the coalition forces in Yemen, in an attempt to evade the international scandal and blame Fahd bin Turki and a number of officers.

Among the names in the royal order were four Saudis who work at the Ministry of Defense, including Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Hassan and Youssef bin Rakan bin Hindi Al-Otaibi.

The names of Al-Hassan and Al-Otaibi appeared with an American contractor named William Michael Somerendyke, and another Canadian, born in Tripoli in Lebanon, named Shadi Shaarani in leaked documents obtained by the International Center for Investigative Journalists [ICIJ], and shared in a project called “Pandora Papers.”

The documents indicate that Al-Hassan was registered as a manager of Larkmont Holdings Limited in the “British Virgin Islands” on December 13, 2016, less than one year after the coalition of aggression launched the war on Yemen.

One of the company’s activities was the purchase of weapons from the Serbian “GIM” company, owned by the father of the Serbian Defense Minister, Nebojsa Stefanovic, but a group of these weapons reached the hands of “Daesh” in Yemen.

The documents also indicate that Al-Hassan, when he registered as a director of Larkmont Holdings Limited, registered an address for him, which, upon verification, turned out to be the address of a Saudi military company called “Rinad Al Jazeera LLC”, headquartered in Riyadh. The company’s website was suspended during the investigation period.

A document from Larkmont Holdings Limited issued on March 1, 2017, stated that Al-Hassan was “authorized to represent the company in all ways with the Ministry of Defense of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.”

Through intermediary companies and American contractors, Saudi Arabia bought Serbian weapons, which later showed that they had reached the hands of Daesh terrorists in Yemen from the Saudi side.

Al-Hassan was not the only Saudi individual who was included in the Saudi King’s decision to investigate suspicions of corruption, and we found that he had established “offshore” companies linked to arms contracts in the Yemen war.

Another name is Yousef bin Rakan bin Hindi Al-Otaibi, who runs Milvards, which is co-managed by Larkmont Holdings Limited, and was incorporated on June 23, 2017, six months after Larkmont was founded. The company’s registration data does not show the identity of its owner.

The purchase of weapons was through intermediary companies and American contractors, and on the Saudi side was the “Larkemont” company and “Renad Al-Jazeera” company, and on the Serbian side was the GIM Company.

Pictures taken from video files published by Daesh from Al-Bayda province showed pictures of Serbian weapons that were among the deals purchased by the Saudi Ministry of Defense from the Serbian “Krusik” factory.

The images showed mortar shells, whose identification marks are clear, through the part number, compared to the purchase contracts signed by Saudi Arabia through the GIM intermediary company with the Serbian “Krusik” factory, where the letters KV indicate that these mortars were manufactured in the Serbian arms factory [K stands for Krusik]. The V stands for Valjevo, the city where the factory is located, and the numbers [04/18] indicate that the mortar is batch 4 produced in 2018.

The documents also revealed that the Saudi Ministry of Defense assigned contractors, whose addresses are in the United Arab Emirates, but whose nationalities were distributed among Romania, America, Saudi Arabia and Bulgaria, to purchase and transport Serbian weapons that it had purchased.

The reports indicated that the United States was the one who supplied Saudi Arabia with white phosphorous, while some of those reports stated that Saudi Arabia had used Serbia to supply it with phosphorous, in anticipation of media criticism aimed at stopping the United States’ supply of internationally prohibited weapons to Saudi Arabia.

The following is the video released by the Syrian Presidency with the full transcript in English:

The video is also on BitChute and YouTube.

The video transcript:

Thank you, Mr. President. I am glad that we meet today in Moscow. The joint anti-terrorist operation has been going on for nearly 6 years, during which the Syrian and Russian armies achieved great achievements, not only by liberating lands or by returning refugees to their villages and cities, but also by protecting many innocent citizens in this world because terrorism knows no political borders and does not stop at political borders.

Of course, in addition to the important results in the liberation of lands and the retreat of terrorists was the launch of the political process, whether in Sochi, Astana, or recently in Geneva. This process has been going on for about two years now, but as you know there are obstacles because there are countries that support terrorists and have no interest in continuing this process in the direction that achieves stability in Syria.

Some countries have imposed a siege on the Syrian people, which we describe as inhuman, immoral and illegal, nevertheless, we are determined in Syria, as a government, and as state institutions, to go in parallel in the process of liberating the territories and in the process of political dialogue.

Today’s visit is an important opportunity to discuss these two points in addition to the bilateral relations that a team of specialists in the two governments will follow up in parallel with our meeting.

I want to take advantage of this meeting in order to thank the Russian state and the Russian people for the humanitarian aid provided to the Syrian people, whether with regard to the Corona pandemic recently or with regard to securing all the basic necessities that the Syrian citizen requires in his daily life.

I would like to thank you and the Russian political establishment, especially the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, for the efforts they made in international forums to defend international law, which at the outset states the sovereignty of states and the right of peoples to determine their future and destiny which managed effectively and strongly to prevent the exploitation of the process of combating terrorism in the world for political goals that serve the agendas of some countries.

Once again, thank you, Mr. President.

Honorable President, I am pleased to welcome you again to Moscow,

First, I would like to congratulate you on your birthday, and I also congratulate you personally on your well-deserved victory with an excellent result in the presidential elections, these results prove that people trust you, despite the difficulties and complications that Syria has gone through in the previous period, people associate your name with restoring normal life to Syria, which you are working hard to achieve including arranging the course of dialogue between you and your political opponents, and we hope that this process will continue.

Achieving this kind of synergy between all Syrian political forces will enable us to move forward in order to achieve a better future for the Syrians, many steps have been taken to achieve this, and thanks to our joint efforts, the largest part of the Syrian territory has been liberated despite all the difficulties and tragedies, and thanks to these efforts, the Syrian government today controls more than 90% of the territory.

The problem was the presence of some foreign armed forces on Syrian territory, in contradiction to all international references, and without permission from the Syrian government, which of course contradicts all international laws.

This gives you the possibility to make the maximum possible efforts to unite all the forces of the country to control the entire Syrian territory, as well as the possibility to reconstruct Syria as much as you can, in the absence of any armed forces in the Syrian territory.

But at the same time, unfortunately, we are still witnessing some actions by terrorists who not only control some lands, but also spread terror among the people.

The liberated areas are also witnessing the return of refugees, and I visited Syria with your kind invitation and witnessed with my own eyes how people return to their homes and rebuild their homes and work actively and energetically to return to normal life.

Our joint efforts are not limited to humanitarian assistance only, but also contribute to the development of economic and trade relations. During the past year, the volume of trade exchange increased by three and a half times.

At the same time, we are working together to get rid of the basic problem facing humanity, and I mean combating the Corona pandemic, we witnessed the supply of the first shipments of the Sputnik (7) and Sputnik Lite vaccines to Syria, we hope that, with our joint efforts, we will succeed in helping the Syrian people get back on their feet in the face of all these problems, including the reconstruction of the Syrian economy, social life and the health field.

Once again, I am pleased to welcome you, Mr. President. Welcome.

‘Israelis’ May Want To Commit Suicide For Fear Of Death – Iranian Army Chief

‘Israelis’ May Want To Commit Suicide For Fear Of Death - Iranian Army Chief

By Staff, Agencies

Iranian Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said the ‘Israeli’ military’s claims that it had sped up alleged Iran strike plans are serving as a death march for the Zionist regime’s rulers.

“It looks like the heads of the Zionist regime have sensed the speed with which their lives are waning,” Major General Mousavi said on Wednesday.

“Maybe, they want to commit suicide for fear of death,” he added.

The comments came a day after Zionist official Aviv Kochavi alleged in an interview that the regime had “greatly accelerated” preparations for action against Iran’s nuclear energy program. He also purported that the regime had “greatly diminished Iran’s presence” to the north of the occupied territories.

Mousavi continued, “They [the Zionists] have many areas of vulnerability,” adding, “They have so far experienced many heavy defeats.”

By suggesting suicidal tendencies on the part of the regime’s officials, the commander was echoing repeated remarks by the Iranian military top brass and other senior figures that the regime must be contemplating its own demise if it entertained even the thought of attacking the Islamic Republic.

Tel Aviv’s claim of being able to reduce the Iranian presence in the region also comes while the Islamic Republic has been maintaining a robust military advisory campaign throughout the region, especially in Iraq and Syria.

The campaign has been successfully seeking to invigorate the Arab countries and others against Takfiri terrorists. Iranian officials have not only dismissed downsizing the campaign as a result of constant military strikes by the Zionist regime and its allies, but also they have been reporting a constant increase in the Islamic Republic’s regional influence and activities.

Who profits from the Kabul suicide bombing?

Who profits from the Kabul suicide bombing?

ISIS-Khorasan aims to prove to Afghans and to the outside world that the Taliban cannot secure the capital

By Pepe Escobar posted with permission and first posted at Asia Times

The horrific Kabul suicide bombing introduces an extra vector in an already incandescent situation: It aims to prove, to Afghans and to the outside world, that the nascent Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is incapable of securing the capital.

As it stands, at least 103 people – 90 Afghans (including at least 28 Taliban) and 13 American servicemen – were killed and at least 1,300 injured, according to the Afghan Health Ministry.

Responsibility for the bombing came via a statement on the Telegram channel of Amaq Media, the official Islamic State (ISIS) news agency. This means it came from centralized ISIS command, even as the perpetrators were members of ISIS-Khorasan, or ISIS-K.

Presuming to inherit the historical and cultural weight of ancient Central Asian lands that from the time of imperial Persia stretched all the way to the western Himalayas, that spin-off defiles the name of Khorasan.

The suicide bomber who carried out “the martyrdom operation near Kabul airport” was identified as one Abdul Rahman al-Logari. That would suggest he’s an Afghan, from nearby Logar province. And that would also suggest that the bombing may have been organized by an ISIS-Khorasan sleeper cell. Sophisticated electronic analysis of their communications would be able to prove it – tools that the Taliban don’t have.

The way social media-savvy ISIS chose to spin the carnage deserves careful scrutiny. The statement on Amaq Media blasts the Taliban for being “in a partnership” with the US military in the evacuation of “spies.”

It mocks the “security measures imposed by the American forces and the Taliban militia in the capital Kabul,” as its “martyr” was able to reach “a distance of no less than five meters from the American forces, who were supervising the procedures.”

So it’s clear that the newly reborn Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the former occupying power are facing the same enemy. ISIS-Khorasan comprises a bunch of fanatics, termed takfiris because they define fellow Muslims – in this case the Taliban – as “apostates.”

Founded in 2015 by emigré jihadis dispatched to southwest Pakistan, ISIS-K is a dodgy beast. Its current head is one Shahab al-Mujahir, who was a mid-level commander of the Haqqani network headquartered in North Waziristan in the Pakistani tribal areas, itself a collection of disparate mujahideen and would-be jihadis under the family umbrella.

Washington branded the Haqqani network as a terrorist organization way back in 2010, and treats several members as global terrorists, including Sirajuddin Haqqani, the head of the family after the death of the founder Jalaluddin.

Up to now, Sirajuddin was the Taliban deputy leader for the eastern provinces – on the same level with Mullah Baradar, the head of the political office in Doha, who was actually released from Guantanamo in 2014.

Crucially, Sirajuddin’s uncle, Khalil Haqqani, formerly in charge of the network’s foreign financing, is now in charge of Kabul security and working as a diplomat 24/7.

The previous ISIS-K leaders were snuffed out by US airstrikes in 2015 and 2016. ISIS-K started to become a real destabilizing force in 2020 when the regrouped band attacked Kabul University, a Doctor Without Borders maternity ward, the Presidential palace and the airport.

NATO intel picked up by a UN report attributes a maximum of 2,200 jihadis to ISIS-K, split into small cells. Significantly, the absolute majority are non-Afghans: Iraqis, Saudis, Kuwaitis, Pakistanis, Uzbeks, Chechens and Uighurs.

The real danger is that ISIS-K works as a sort of magnet for all manners of disgruntled former Taliban or discombobulated regional warlords with nowhere to go.

The perfect soft target

The civilian commotion these past few days around Kabul airport was the perfect soft target for trademark ISIS carnage.

Zabihullah Mujahid – the new Taliban minister of information in Kabul, who in that capacity talks to global media every day – is the one who actually warned NATO members about an imminent ISIS-K suicide bombing. Brussels diplomats confirmed it.

In parallel, it’s no secret among intel circles in Eurasia that ISIS-K has become disproportionally more powerful since 2020 because of a transportation ratline from Idlib, in Syria, to eastern Afghanistan, informally known in spook talk as Daesh Airlines.

Moscow and Tehran, even at very high diplomatic levels, have squarely blamed the US-UK axis as the key facilitators. Even the BBC reported in late 2017 on hundreds of ISIS jihadis given safe passage out of Raqqa, and out of Syria, right in front of the Americans.

The Kabul bombing took place after two very significant events.

The first one was Mujahid’s claim during an American NBC News interview earlier this week that there is “no proof” Osama bin Laden was behind 9/11 – an argument that I had already hinted was coming in this podcast the previous week.

This means the Taliban have already started a campaign to disconnect themselves from the “terrorist” label associated with 9/11. The next step may involve arguing that the execution of 9/11 was set up in Hamburg, the operational details coordinated from two apartments in New Jersey.

Nothing to do with Afghans. And everything staying within the parameters of the official narrative – but that’s another immensely complicated story.

The Taliban will need to show that “terrorism” has been all about their lethal enemy, ISIS, and way beyond old school al-Qaeda, which they harbored up to 2001. But why should they be shy about making such claims? After all, the United States rehabilitated Jabhat Al-Nusra – or al-Qaeda in Syria – as “moderate rebels.”

The origin of ISIS is incandescent material. ISIS was spawned in Iraq prison camps, its core made of Iraqis, their military skills derived from ex-officers in Saddam’s army, a wild bunch fired way back in 2003 by Paul Bremmer, the head of the Coalition Provisional Authority.

ISIS-K duly carries the work of ISIS from Southwest Asia to the crossroads of Central and South Asia in Afghanistan. There’s no credible evidence that ISIS-K has ties with Pakistani military intel.

On the contrary: ISIS-K is loosely aligned with the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP), also known as the Pakistani Taliban, Islamabad’s mortal enemy. TTP’s agenda has nothing to do with the moderate Mullah Baradar-led Afghan Taliban who participated in the Doha process.

SCO to the rescue

The other significant event tied to the Kabul bombing was that it took place only one day after yet another phone call between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping.

Visual search query image

The Kremlin stressed the pair’s “readiness to step up efforts to combat threats of terrorism and drug trafficking coming from the territory of Afghanistan”; the “importance of establishing peace”; and “preventing the spread of instability to adjacent regions.”

And that led to the clincher: They jointly committed to “make the most of the potential” of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which was founded 20 years ago as the “Shanghai Five”, even before 9/11, to fight “terrorism, separatism and extremism.”

The SCO summit is next month in Dushanbe – when Iran, most certainly, will be admitted as a full member. The Kabul bombing offers the SCO the opportunity to forcefully step up.

Whichever complex tribal coalition is formed to govern the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, it will be intertwined with the full apparatus of regional economic and security cooperation, led by the three main actors of Eurasia integration: Russia, China and Iran.

The record shows Moscow has all that it takes to help the Islamic Emirate against ISIS-K in Afghanistan. After all, the Russians flushed ISIS out of all significant parts of Syria and confined them to the Idlib cauldron.

In the end, no one aside from ISIS wants a terrorized Afghanistan, just as no one wants a civil war in Afghanistan. So the order of business indicates not only an SCO-led frontal fight against existing ISIS-K terror cells in Afghanistan but also an integrated campaign to drain any potential social base for the takfiris in Central and South Asia.

Imperial NATO Chaos: Taliban Are Terrorists while al Qaeda in Syria Supported

MIRI WOOD 

USA good terrorists in Syria - bad terrorists in Afghanistan

The Taliban immediately moved into the Afghanistan presidential palace upon the exit of Ashaf Ghani, with his five million in cash, and possibly his wife, upon the US leaving the tattered country on a jet plane, not knowing when it will be back again. The ensuing hysteria among various factions of NATO imperialist hypocrites — politicians, diplomats, NGO’s, fake charities, media stenographers, underpaid mercenaries — has been so on the same page as to appear to almost be a form of coordinated chaos.

This relatively short piece will mostly involve the double standards of hatred of the Taliban and adoration of the al Qaeda terrorists in Syria, by the finely coiffed and overpaid unindicted war criminals.

Syria News reminds our readers of a few salient points: [1] The US has not officially declared war since 11 December 1941. Such a declaration can create all kinds of extraneous logistical problems, while engaging in invasion, occupation, slow or fast genocide without an official declaration can allow for res inter alios acta and other forms of plausible deniability. [2] Ronald Reagan did not call the Taliban “freedom fighters,” as they did not yet exist in their military formations; he invited the progenitor of the Taliban, the mujahedeen, to visit the White House, where he praised them as similar to the US founding fathers. [3] Ashraf Ghani was considered the president of Afghanistan since 2014, though he functioned more like the chief warlord of Kabul, possibly given his remarkable background that included being a high school exchange student in Oregon, getting a bachelor’s degree at the evangelical American University of Beirut, making the rounds through John Hopkins, the UN, World Bank, the Fulbright scholarship folk — which might explain that impressive net worth of between five and nine million USD in a least developed country that comes in the second to the last in poverty, with an average annual income of $500.

Reagan invited ”freedom fighters” mujahedeen to White House; “Mommy” stayed away.

The author has just been made aware that Ghani’s background is even more malevolent. He has been involved with the Atlantic Council (which recently came into partnership with Big Brother, Facebook), the UN Democracy Fund, and the World Economic Forum Global Agenda.

In 2021, he co-authored a twenty-four page paper demanding that President Bashar al Assad be removed from office, employing the standard NATO lying propaganda as the cover story for supremacist regime change.

Had the corrupt US warlord not fled the Taliban with five million, one might suggest he also fell prey to that Assad Curse.

institute for state effectiveness

The UAE Foreign Ministry has announced that the Syria-hating, globalist, Taliban-fleeing Ghani and his family have been welcomed with opened arms, despite being almost as “dead broke” as were the impoverished Clintons when they left the White House.” The Ministry claims the five million USD report is “completely baseless,” “lies” (everyone who believes that may cast a vote in the comment sections).

We shall now take a look at a cross-section of the NATO hypocrites, outraged over the Taliban having taken control of the ‘abandoned’ Afghanistan, and compare their rage and wrath to their adoration and full support of terrorists in the Syrian Arab Republic. As these humanitarian bastards are cut from the same cloth of that colonial savior complex, the order of their listing is of no consequence.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), willfully joined the army in 2005, four years after 9/11, which was plenty of time for even the most naive to grasp that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, time to know there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, that the con involved idiot Bush citing Tony Blair’s lies in his State of the Union Address, time enough to grasp that the destruction of the secular country was to enrich Dick Cheney’s Halliburton war machine. With flagrant amorality, he invaded Iraq, and did his part to destroy the country.

Cotton has ignored all requests by this author to investigate the Arkansas-based charity without charitable status, in its financial support of a chilling organization run by al Qaeda in Idlib, involving little girls garishly made up to look as though degenerates are pimping them on the dark net for pedophiles who should be locked up.

The same Cotton who recently called on Biden to bomb “every Taliban fighter in the vicinity of Kabul,” supported Trump’s war criminal bombing of Syria for al Qaeda terrorists in Idlib, cheered the US/UK/French bombing of Syria for al Qaeda in Douma, supported Trump’s criminal assassination of Major General Qasem Soleimani, gave full support to terrorists in Hong Kong murdering police and torching innocents, and approved of Trump appointing Langley boy Guaido as president of Venezuela — as though the former president were King George, appointing governorships.

He also called for deployment of US military on the streets to such down demonstrations after the George Floyd suffocation killing.

UNSG Antonio Guterres also went the round of fake teeth-gnashing, being “deeply concerned by accounts of human rights violations against the women and girls of Afghanistan” because of the takeover by the Taliban. Guterres was not Secretary-General in August 2013, when al Qaeda and Qattar’s al Jazeera raided villages in Latakia, slaughtering men and kidnapping women and their children.

He was, however, in office for one month at the time the remaining 57 women and their children were released from captivity in February 2017, in an exchange for arrested terrorists, in a moment long awaited. Guterres was utterly, silent when al Qaeda terrorists massacred upwards of 130 mostly women and children in al Rashidin during another terrorist-abductees exchange, 17 April 2017.

Why has Guterres never been deeply concerned by kidnapped Syrian women being driven around in caged trucks before being murdered for war porn? Why was he not revulsed by the sight of a near full-term baby surgically carved out of his mother’s womb, by terrorists?

Were an award to be given for the most arrogant, two-faced, hypocritical, unindicted war criminal on Capitol Hill, it would surely go to Congressman Adam Kinzinger, likely jockeying for a presidential nomination. Previously seen on the Hill trying to squeeze out a couple of tears over 6 January, Kinzinger’s double standards are unprecedented.

He was a bomber pilot, which means that he used to fly over other people’s countries and drop bombs on them.

Now, he is devastated over the Taliban taking over Afghanistan and has shared a suicide hotline for veterans who invaded and occupied Afghanistan who might be depressed over this news.

In 2014, he held a meeting with terrorists — including an armed insurrectionist who supported ISIS terrorists and called them ‘brothers’ — in Turkey. Three years later, he tweeted an attack on Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who visited Syria and had a meeting with President Assad. He sadistically reminded her of Omran, neglecting to mention the child was kidnapped, painted in moulage trauma, and had his iconic photograph taken by the savage who was friends with the deranged psychotics who kidnapped 12 year old Abdullah Issa from a hospital, and cut off his head with a kitchen knife, and videoed the horrific atrocity (Kinzinger has never mentioned Abdullah’s name).

Omran’s sister was a distraction from the “iconic” intention of the photograph.

Around the same time, he launched an anti-Syria congressional caucus, to support the armed insurrectionists, the criminally insane who slaughtered Syrian soldiers, and mutilated their corpses.

In late 2019, Kinzinger was so offended by Trump’s anemic tweet that gave a whisper of inference that maybe there might be a withdrawal, that he was giving apoplectic interviews condemning the possible ‘abandonment’ by Trump regime troops war criminally in Syria, of the terrorist, Obama-created SDF-NATO-armed-insurrectionists.

Kinzinger whined that they would be slaughtered by the “Turks” — secure in his arrogant knowledge that stenographer media would not point out that he held his meetings with terrorists in Turkey.

Peculiarly poetic, immediately after a Category 5 hurricane passed, the author found her notes on Kinzinger in a dirty puddle on the floor, among other, undefinable detritus.

As our hypocritical, lying, warmongering ilk on the Hill flaunt their phony attacks of amnesia, and their deadly double-standards, we remind their constituents of the war crimes our taxes fund, the support that these politicians give to the criminally insane, and that our tax dollars arm these savages so that they are able to destroy other people’s countries.

NATO stenographer journalists have treated the world to the imperialist double standards of weeping for the fallen soldiers who invaded Afghanistan, and died there, allegedly fighting terrorists. These are the same supremacists who have supported terrorists in Syria, and who have defamed Syrian Arab Army soldiers who were killed defending their homeland from foreign invaders, within their sovereign borders — including the 83 SAA soldiers that Obama ‘accidentally’ massacred to protect al Qaeda terrorists in al Thardeh, Deir Ezzor. The same western supremacy media wailing over the western soldiers who died in Afghanistan — fighting the Taliban — were silent when Syria released the news of a mass grave containing the remains of 57 Syrian soldiers slaughtered by unknown sects of al Qaeda, discovered in al Raqqa.


soldiers
Unindicted war criminal Blair shows his respect for Brit soldier killed fighting Taliban.
Mass funderal for 83 Syrian soldiers massacred when Obama accidentally bombed them to assist al Qaeda terrorists.

It is a war crime to set up military bases in other people’s homelands without their permission. While Obama merely did the sneaky special operative forces invasion of the SAR, the Trump regime actually invaded with armed soldiers, to steal the oil, and to further arm terrorists and to increase armed insurrection — which are politician crybabies continue to wail about regarding 6 January — against the Levantine republic. The Biden regime, now partially under attack for the abrupt withdrawal from Afghanistan, leaving that ‘vacuum’ for the Taliban to fill (when not playing in the gym, or in the amusement park bumper cars).

The first two screenshots are self-evident. The third shows the degenerate necrophiliac tendencies of the al Qaeda terrorists the US taxpayer arms and funds. These not Taliban psychotics have decapitated a Syrian Arab Army soldier, and are having a fun time pretending to feed the severed head.

The schmuck with the cigar and the rifle is American terrorist in Syria, Brace Belden. A self-described juvenile delinquent, druggie, and young alcoholic who spent much of his time engaged in self-ejaculatory efforts, this criminal somehow found the means to leave his mommy’s home, travel to and illegally enter Syria, and bomb the sh*t out of everything, including helping to turn the city of al Raqqa, population pre-takfiri invasion, 800,00, into rubble.

American terrorist Sotloff is seen practicing with a ground-to-ground military weapon. Sotloff — absurd backstory and other American illegals’ fantastic backstories, here — was reputedly sold by his FSA terrorist friends to ISIS terrorists. Armed American terrorist Eric Harroun had an alleged non-combat vehicular closed head injury which gave him an honorable, medical military discharge. Despite not having put enough money into Social Security, he managed on a paltry disability income to find his way into Syria, where he embedded with the FSA and al Nusra, helping to engage in such freedom-ish things as bombing a military helicopter from the sky, and then stealing salvageable parts (upon returning home, he was arrested, then charges were immediately dropped and he subsequently and conveniently killed himself with a heroin overdose.).

In May 2017, armed insurrectionist terrorists thank the United States for sending them trucks loaded with military weapons, which they planned to use to slaughter SAA soldiers in the battle to destroy Deir Ezzor. The full video of gratitude, here. Please note that these chunks of human garbage succeeded in murdering Gen. Issam Zahreddine, not long after the gifts from Donald Trump.

Matthew VanDyke was reared by a single mother, yet after graduation, he had beaucoup funds to acquire a motorcycle and expensive camera equipment and then enjoyed the good life of traveling to various hot spots in the world, stopping in Libya where he helped al Qaeda destroy the country, before illegally settling in Syria.

From there, he proclaimed that there was no ‘Syrian revolution,’ that the fraud would collapse without the savagery of the “foreign” terrorists, that Jabhat al Nusra — comprised of mostly ‘foreign fighters’ — should be removed from the US, UN, EU terror lists. In between time spent sodomizing goats, he wrote to British intelligence operative Elliot Higgins that the ‘foreign fighters’ had chemical weapons and was prepared to use them and blame on President Assad, who was winning the war.

His recent concern over women under the Taliban rang a bit hallow, given his seduction of a naive, Syrian traitor, the star in his award-winning fraudumentary. Emails he exchanged with her suggests he instructed her in the art of fellatio, and then turned her out, and subsequently sexually harassed her (his hacked emails with her, and with Higgins, here).

A thinking mind might wonder that the NATO stenographers that went into a swoon over his 15 minute docudrama all missed the fact that these armed terrorists supported with US tax dollars had invaded, occupied, and destroyed countless homes of Syrians, though we have no evidence the indigenous habitants were slaughtered in the making of the movie.

The supremacist double-standards involving condemnation of Taliban terrorists and financial support of the various factions of al Qaeda deployed into Syria, are not limited to the rabid dogs of war on the Hill, but are equally shared by other NATO terrorist scum around the world — powerful mobsters who dumped their human garbage into the Levantine republic, to butcher its population, destroy its homeland, and then be killed off, so that they could not return to their filthy homes of birth. The U went so far as to write a paper on how various European countries could protect themselves from ”foreign fighters” come home to roost — though the 149-page report significantly lied about the numbers of human detritus dumped into the SAR.

In addition to providing glowing news stories on the criminally insane foreigners, Germany, France, Italy, and the UK were among the countries with the biggest pockets for arming the beasts with two legs.

These unindicted war criminals now so concerned about the Taliban in Afghanistan dumped in its pathogens, armed them, funded them, cheered their every crime. Italy went so far as to use its odalisques opératives phony kidnapping to launder $12 million to al Qaeda savages, under cover of a ransom story (the pretty Italian agents’ backstory also included in The Final Days of Armageddon missive.

Perhaps the most sanctimonious post Taliban power grab came from the great enucleator of the Gilets Jaunes activists, the criminal who arms and funds al Qaeda and bombs Syria for al Qaeda atrocities, the criminal who gasses his people and then projects his crime onto the beloved Syrian president. The little man throw a hissy fit claim that his words were “twisted,” and so his peeps added English captions: France and other U countries must “protect against large irregular migratory flows that endanger those who are part of them and fuel trafficking of every kind” (the French is not any more intelligible).

For the rabid dogs of war — in political office, or in media stenography work — there is never enough chaos, never enough Pavlovian tricks to set one group against another, along comes a warmonger to attack a war pimp, and the Business Insider immediately reported that a man politician had launched ‘out of context’ accusations against a woman reporter.

As the old Aretha Franklin hit goes, Who’s Zoomin’ Who? Both Cruz and Ward are indictable under Nuremberg Principle VI, Crimes against Peace (i) and (ii):

Crimes against peace applicable to the Taliban and the urchins who lie about Syria.

Cruz supported Trump’s war criminal bombings of the SAR for al Qaeda terrorists there. Ward — who only wears niqab when embedded with terrorists, be they Taliban or various sects of al Qaeda occupying Syria — has an extensive history of criminal propaganda lies, and multiple criminal entries into the Levantine republic to embed herself with (male) terrorists who have destroyed the country, who have kidnapped, raped, and butchered Syrian women, so the scam of sisterhood and or gender victimization were better shoveled elsewhere.

Ward was the first to whitewash al Qaeda — including foreign terrorists — when the savages changed their names and pretended to have gone through an amicable divorce. She subsequently spoke at the UN (seated next to SAMS liar and no longer in niqab), \essentially functioning as mouthpiece for al Qaeda terrorists with who she had criminally embedded herself, winning awards for interviewing foreign savages also illegally in the SAR. On 6 September 2016, she blew kisses to American illegal Bilal Kareem, former stand-up comic from NYC, who is embedded with foreign terrorists in the SDN list, who interviewed the degenerate head of the al Zinki terror gang who kidnapped 12 year old Abdullah Issa from a hospital, and hacked off his head with a kitchen knife. The degenerate lied that the child was a man, and that the poor terrorists had been under a great deal of stress.

The gruesome video of the child being tormented while asking to be shot in the head, instead, has been expunged from the internet — not because of its heinousness, but because: The psychopaths are funded by the US taxpayer; one of the savages was involved with bombing a bakery (while Channel 4 was criminally embedded with him. This video was also expunged, but a screengrab from it found here); and one of the deranged killers was a friend of the fake physician married to the woman whose fraudumentary was nominated for an Oscar early this year.

To be completely explicit, Clarissa Ward has been a proponent of regime change against Syria since the onset of the NATO Spring. She has consistently embedded with terrorists, and spoken as their mouth piece. She has never concerned herself with the horrors that Syrian women have endured. Anyone who claims that the warmongering Cruz has attacked her because she is a woman — spending time in her element, with terrorists, the recently the Taliban ones — is a low-level propagandist for a variation on war propaganda.

The western audience, trained over many decades of Operation Mockingbird, to eat the lies of warmongers, then beg, Please, Sir, may I have another, whose previously closeted sadoerotic fantasies pour out whenever it can feign sadness over countless atrocities, and slobber over outright lies, such as the incubator hoax funded by American taxpayers to dupe American taxpayers — is now being deluged with scary photographs of armed Taliban terrorists, some of whom drive around in trucks, reportedly terrifying Afghans, and threatening to kill, or outright killing of civilians, with alleged focus on women and girls.

The media manipulators now feign astonishment that the Taliban has come into possession of NATO weaponsSyria News has published countless reports on hundreds of millions of dollars worth of such weapons, abandoned by fleeing al Qaeda terrorists in the SAR — completely ignored by the double standard bearers of the MSM and corrupt political circles.

Similarly deranged-looking al Qaeda terrorists throughout Syria, armed with RPG’s and MANPAD‘s, have consistently been censored by the media stenographers, now in a frenzied outpouring of fear, regarding the Taliban takeover.

Journalistic integrity requires us to make note of the very curious terror warning ejaculated by the US Department of Homeland Security, on 13 August 2021 and in effect through 11 November. Though the Biden regime officially announced the beginning of withdrawal from Afghanistan on May Day, 2021, the squirrely declaration of the DHS was shoe-horned between the Taliban taking control of Kunduz on 6 August, and entering Kabul on the 15th.

DHS issued strangely inclusive terror warning prior to the Taliban taking control of Kabul.

The warning was unprecedented in an eerie form of inclusivity, a “diverse and challenging threat” from malign foreign influences, foreign terrorists, domestic terrorists, possible grievance based violence during the ongoing global pandemic in which perceived government restrictions over public health safety measures require all to dutifully say something upon seeing something.

Less than one week later, the obviously disturbed Floyd Ray Roseberry — with a history of financial difficulties — live-streamed threats to detonate his truck near to the Congressional Library, as he told the world his mother recently died of cancer, his wife cannot get treated for her skin cancer, and he cannot get treatment for his bad knees. He live streamed from his Facebook account until it was shut down.

It took almost 15 hours after his uneventful surrender, before US law enforcement official announced no bomb was found in his truck, “but possible bomb making materials were collected from the truck” (emphases added).

Not a Taliban supporter, but a domestic terrorist.
Domestic terrorist under financial distress Floyd Ray Roseberry fit most of the inclusivity in the DHS warning.

The author again reminds our readers that the NATO junta which controls the UNSC has repeatedly supported terrorists in and against the Syrian Arab Republic, has repeatedly lied in support of them, since the launch of the NATO Spring against the Levantine republic, in 2011.

These klan members — and NATO — have begun to issue warnings against the Taliban, not to engage in terrorist activities against their entitled countries.

Gosh, it is almost as though they have decided wave the proverbial red flag in front of the bull in the China shop (mixed metaphors are currently of some use).

Brit ambassador to UN warns Taliban.
Frog ambassador to UN says no money for terrorists…
…except, of course, al Qaeda in Syria.
US supremacist ambassador to UN warns Taliban.
Et voilà! NATO warns the Taliban.

The Taliban – related imperial chaos unleashed by NATO politicians and diplomats has only just begun, and will persist even as the criminal liars continue to arrogantly flaunt their support of terrorists in Syria.

Sayyed Nasrallah Announces 1st Ship Sailing from Iran, Warns US & “Israel”: Beware It’s A Lebanese Land

19-08-2020

Translated by Zeinab Essa, Compiled by Fatima Haydar

Sayyed Nasrallah Announces 1st Ship Sailing from Iran, Warns US & “Israel”: Beware It’s A Lebanese Land

Beirut – Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah gave a televised speech on the 10th of Muharram to commemorate Ashura.

During his speech on Thursday, Sayyed Nasrallah tackled various local and regional issues, notably the fuel crisis in Lebanon and the US defeat in Afghanistan.

His Eminence began his speech by offering his heartfelt condolences to the Islamic nation as well as its Leader His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei on the martyrdom of Imam Hussein [AS].

First and foremost, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed, “The top of our priorities is facing the Zionist entity occupying Palestine and some lands in Syria and Lebanon,” and asserted that “Our firm and endless position is to support Palestinians in their right to return their land from the sea to the river despite all pressures and normalization attempts”.

“We are looking forward to the day when the Zionist invaders will leave Palestine, because this is the end of all invaders,” His Eminence said.

The SG called on the protection of the religious sites and said, “To confront the threats that Al-Quds and its holy sites are facing, we urge the establishment and afforming a regional equation that protects these holy sites”.

“We call for making the protection of the holy sites the task of the entire Resistance Axis, not just the Palestinian sites,” Sayyed Nasrallah said.

Moving to Iraq, Sayyed Nasrallah renewed Hezbollah’s thanks to the Iraqi factions for expressing their readiness to protect the holy sites in Palestine.

The SG hailed the cooperation among the Resistance forces in the region alongside the resistance in Palestine and stated that this cooperation “will increase the hope in liberating Palestine”.

Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted what the United States represents to the world and explained, “The successive US administrations represent the head of tyranny and injustice in the world”.

His Eminence assured that the “Sovereignty in our region over its resources, water, oil and land must be to its peoples and countries”.

Sayyed Nasrallah also noted that, “After the American defeat in Afghanistan, eyes are focused on the US occupation in Iraq and Syria”.

His Eminence further said, “The Zionists fear any Iraqi role in any grand war,” highlighting that, “Iraq has decided that the US combat forces should leave its soil at the end of the year, and this is an important issue on the way of achieving Iraqi sovereignty”.

“The Iraqis should take into consideration the issue of American advisors by looking at the experience of Afghanistan,” the SG added.

Sayyed Nasrallah also explained, “What constitutes a real guarantee for Iraq in the face of Daesh [Arabic acronym for ‘ISIS’ / ‘ISIL’] and the Takfiris is the Hashd Shaabi [PMU]”.

“The Hashd Shaabi resembles one of the greatest manifestations and embodiments of the response to the fatwa [a ruling on a point of Islamic law given] of the religious authority in Holy Najaf    ,” His Eminence stated.

The Resistance leader has a firm stance regarding the American presence in the Middle East, vying for their withdrawal, “The US forces must leave the Tanaf area [in Syria], because there are no Daesh forces there”.

In a parallel notion, “The Hashd Shaabi must be strengthened, because it is a great guarantee for Iraq,” Sayyed Nasrallah asserted, warning that “US forces facilitate the development of Daesh and help it move from one region to another”.

“The American forces must leave east of the Euphrates, and the goal of their presence is to steal the Syrian oil,” the SG said, adding that “the fate of the American occupiers in Syria is to leave so that the land and its oil will return to Syria”.  

Tackling the war on Yemen, Sayyed Nasrallah said, “The US-Saudi aggressive war on Yemen must stop, and this aggression will not be able to achieve its goals”.

“We stand with the oppressed people of Bahrain, who are prevented from expressing their opinion and expressed their readiness to support Palestine,” His Eminence said regarding Bahrain.

“Let no one make wrong calculations,” the Resistance leader warned, saying that “‘Israel’ is the anxious party these days”.

On the Lebanese arena, Sayyed Nasrallah said, “We reiterate to friends and foes that the Resistance in Lebanon is strong”.

On the issue of the Lebanese government formation, His Eminence called for “the formation of a government in Lebanon and we reject vacuum”.

Sayyed Nasrallah added, “We wait for the results of the meetings between President of the Republic and the Prime Minister-designate over the government’s formation”.

 “We believe more than ever in the correctness of our decision, in the resistance, and that we’re close to victory,” the SG announced.

However, His Eminence cautioned, “There are those inside and outside who are trying to hold us responsible for the failure to form the government, and this is not true,” adding, “Some accuse us of not exerting enough pressures on our allies and friends, but this is meaningless”.

Regarding the fuel crisis Lebanon is facing, Sayyed Nasrallah said, “Our first ship will sail from Iran within hours, carrying the needed material, and we give priority to the fuel”.

His Eminence assured, “More ships will also come from Iran, not only this ship”.

On this issue, Sayyed Nasrallah issued a firm warning to the Americans and “Israelis”, “The ship that will sail in a few hours will be from the first moment a Lebanese territory”.

Sayyed Nasrallah also said, “Whoever imposed this decision on us is the one who imposed the economic war on us”.

How Russia-China are stage-managing the Taliban

August 18, 2021

By Pepe Escobar: The Saker Blog and cross-posted at the Unz Review.

The first Taliban press conference after this weekend’s Saigon moment geopolitical earthquake, conducted by spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, was in itself a game-changer.

The contrast could not be starker with those rambling pressers at the Taliban embassy in Islamabad after 9/11 and before the start of the American bombing – proving this is an entirely new political animal.

Yet some things never change. English translations remain atrocious.

Here is a good summary of the key Taliban statements, and

here (in Russian) is a very detailed roundup.

These are the key takeaways.

– No problem for women to get education all the way to college, and to continue to work. They just need to wear the hijab (like in Qatar or Iran). No need to wear a burqa. The Taliban insists, “all women’s rights will be guaranteed within the limits of Islamic law.”

– The Islamic Emirate “does not threaten anyone” and will not treat anyone as enemies. Crucially, revenge – an essential plank of the Pashtunwali code – will be abandoned, and that’s unprecedented. There will be a general amnesty – including people who worked for the former NATO-aligned system. Translators, for instance, won’t be harassed, and don’t need to leave the country.

– Security of foreign embassies and international organizations “is a priority.” Taliban special security forces will protect both those leaving Afghanistan and those who remain.

– A strong inclusive Islamic government will be formed. “Inclusive” is code for the participation of women and Shi’ites.

– Foreign media will continue to work undisturbed. The Taliban government will allow public criticism and debate. But “freedom of speech in Afghanistan must be in line with Islamic values.”

– The Islamic Emirate of Taliban wants recognition from the “international community” – code for NATO. The overwhelming majority of Eurasia and the Global South will recognize it anyway. It’s essential to note, for example, the closer integration of the expanding SCO – Iran is about to become a full member, Afghanistan is an observer – with ASEAN: the absolute majority of Asia will not shun the Taliban.

For the record, they also stated that the Taliban took all of Afghanistan in only 11 days: that’s pretty accurate. They stressed “very good relations with Pakistan, Russia and China.” Yet the Taliban don’t have formal allies and are not part of any military-political bloc. They definitely “won’t allow Afghanistan to become a safe haven for international terrorists”. That’s code for ISIS/Daesh.

On the key issue of opium/heroin: the Taliban will ban their production. So, for all practical purposes, the CIA heroin rat line is dead.

As eyebrow raising as these statements may be, the Taliban did not even get into detail on economic/infrastructure development deals – as they will need a lot of new industries, new jobs and improved Eurasian-wide trade relations. That will be announced later.

The go-to Russian guy

Sharp US observers are remarking, half in jest, that the Taliban in only one sitting answered more real questions from US media than POTUS since January.

What this first press conference reveals is how the Taliban are fast absorbing essential P.R. and media lessons from Moscow and Beijing, emphasizing ethnic harmony, the role of women, the role of diplomacy, and deftly defusing in a single move all the hysteria raging across NATOstan.

The next bombshell step in the P.R. wars will be to cut off the lethal, evidence-free Taliban-9/11 connection; afterwards the “terrorist organization” label will disappear, and the Taliban as a political movement will be fully legitimized.

Moscow and Beijing are meticulously stage-managing the Taliban reinsertion in regional and global geopolitics. This means that ultimately the SCO is stage-managing the whole process, applying a consensus reached after a series of ministerial and leaders meetings, leading to a very important summit next month in Dushanbe.

The key player the Taliban are talking to is Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s special presidential envoy for Afghanistan. In yet another debunking of NATOstan narrative, Kabulov confirmed, for instance, “we see no direct threat to our allies in Central Asia. There are no facts proving otherwise.”

The Beltway will be stunned to learn that Zabulov has also revealed, “we have long been in talks with the Taliban on the prospects for development after their capture of power and they have repeatedly confirmed that they have no extraterritorial ambition, they learned the lessons of 2000.” These contacts were established “over the past 7 years.”

Zabulov reveals plenty of nuggets when it comes to Taliban diplomacy: “If we compare the negotiability of colleagues and partners, the Taliban have long seemed to me much more negotiable than the puppet Kabul government. We proceed from the premise that the agreements must be implemented. So far, with regard to the security of the embassy and the security of our allies in Central Asia, the Taliban have respected the agreements.”

Faithful to its adherence to international law, and not the “rules-based international order”, Moscow is always keen to emphasize the responsibility of the UN Security Council: “We must make sure that the new government is ready to behave conditionally, as we say, in a civilized manner. That’s when this point of view becomes common to all, then the procedure [of removing the qualification of the Taliban as a terrorist organization] will begin.”

So while the US/EU/NATO flee Kabul in spasms of self-inflicted panic, Moscow practices – what else – diplomacy. Zabulov: “That we have prepared the ground for a conversation with the new government in Afghanistan in advance is an asset of Russian foreign policy.”

Dmitry Zhirnov, Russia’s ambassador to Afghanistan, is working overtime with the Taliban. He met a senior Taliban security official yesterday. The meeting was “positive, constructive…The Taliban movement has the most friendly; the best policy towards Russia… He arrived alone in one vehicle, with no guards.”

Both Moscow and Beijing have no illusions that the West is already deploying Hybrid War tactics to discredit and destabilize a government that isn’t even formed and hasn’t even started working. No wonder Chinese media is describing Washington as a “strategic rogue.”

What matters is that Russia-China are way ahead of the curve, cultivating parallel inside tracks of diplomatic dialogue with the Taliban. It’s always crucial to remember that Russia harbors 20 million Muslims, and China at least 35 million. These will be called to support the immense project of Afghan reconstruction – and full Eurasia reintegration.

The Chinese saw it coming

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi saw it coming weeks ago. And that explains the meeting in Tianjin in late July, when he hosted a high-level Taliban delegation, led by Mullah Baradar, de facto conferring them total political legitimacy. Beijing already knew the Saigon moment was inevitable. Thus the statement stressing China expected to “play an important role in the process of peaceful reconciliation and reconstruction in Afghanistan”.

What this means in practice is China will be a partner of Afghanistan on infrastructure investment, via Pakistan, incorporating it into an expanded China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) bound to diversify connectivity channels with Central Asia. The New Silk Road corridor from Xinjiang to the port of Gwadar in the Arabian Sea will branch out: the first graphic illustration is Chinese construction of the ultra-strategic Peshawar-Kabul highway.

The Chinese are also building a major road across the geologically spectacular, deserted Wakhan corridor from western Xinjiang all the way to Badakhshan province, which incidentally, is now under total Taliban control.

The trade off is quite straightforward: the Taliban should allow no safe haven for the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), and no interference in Xinjiang.

The overall trade/security combo looks like a certified win-win. And we’re not even talking about future deals allowing China to exploit Afghanistan’s immense mineral wealth.

Once again, the Big Picture reads like the Russia-China double helix, connected to all the “stans” as well as Pakistan, drawing a comprehensive game plan/road map for Afghanistan. In their multiple contacts with both Russians and Chinese, the Taliban seem to have totally understood how to profit from their role in the New Great Game.

The extended New Axis of Evil

Imperial Hybrid War tactics to counteract the scenario are inevitable. Take the first proclamation of a Northern Alliance “resistance”, in theory led by Ahmad Masoud, the son of the legendary Lion of the Panjshir killed by al-Qaeda two days before 9/11.

I met Masoud father – an icon. Afghan insider info on Masoud son is not exactly flattering. Yet he’s already a darling of woke Europeans, complete with a glamour pose for AFP, an impromptu visit in the Panjshir by professional philosopher swindler Bernard-Henri Levy, and the release of a manifesto of sorts published in several European newspapers, exhibiting all the catchphrases: “tyranny”, “slavery”, “vendetta”, “martyred nation”, “Kabul screams”, “nation in chains”, etc.

The whole set up smells like a “son of Shah” [of Iran] gambit. Masoud son and his mini-militia are completely surrounded in the Panjshir mountains and can’t be de facto effective even when it comes to regimenting the under 25s, two-thirds of the Afghan population, whose main worry is to find real jobs in a nascent real economy.

Woke NATOstan “analyses” of Taliban Afghanistan don’t even qualify as irrelevant, insisting that Afghanistan is not strategic and even lost its tactical importance for NATO. It’s a sorry spectacle illustrating how Europe is hopelessly behind the curve, drenched in trademark neo-colonialism of the White Man’s Burden variety as it dismisses a land dominated by clans and tribes.

Expect China to be one of the first powers to formally recognize the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, alongside Turkey and, later on, Russia. I have already alluded to the coming of a New Axis of Evil: Pakistan-Taliban-China. The axis will inevitably be extended to Russia-Iran. So what? Ask Mullah Baradar: he couldn’t care less.

The Long Overdue Cleaning of Daraa is Imminent, It’s About Time

 ARABI SOURI 

NATO sponsored ISIS and Al Qaeda Terrorists in Daraa southern Syria - archive

Daraa Balad, the old center of the city of Daraa in the southern region of Syria, will finally be cleaned from NATO-sponsored terrorists, this time there will be no more truce, for sure.

In a previous post on July 29, we’ve said that the cleaning of Daraa Balad and eliminating the terrorists would be completed within hours or a couple of days, we had all the information and indications from the mobilization of the unstoppable Syrian Arab Army all confirming that happy ending, however, and in the same report we did mention our fear that the Russian allies would feel sympathetic to these terrorists and would ask for a new delay of the SAA military operation, which is exactly what happened.

The following is a short report by the Syrian state media aired yesterday, 08 August, affirming that the delay in the SAA military operation was due to a request by the terrorists who, naturally, did not commit to it, and it’s now in the hands of the Syrian Arab Army to finish the job and clean the last area in southern Syrian in which the terrorists control:

Transcript of the video report:

It would have been possible to bet on the lessons of the war to push the militants in Daraa to deviate towards calm, if these were not governed by foreign agendas and their organic connection with them.

It would have been possible to bet on arousing patriotic feelings and recalling the beautiful Syrian era had these gunmen been free and masters of their decisions, but as the events and the results of the negotiations indicate, it seems that the foolishness and stubbornness of these people threaten to ignite some areas of Daraa again.

For the Syrian state, the oscillating reality is no longer acceptable, and if, as a result of the entry of some guarantors as mediators at an earlier time made the (Syrian) state accept the presence of some weapons in the hands of these groups, today, while Syria is regaining its health, it is no longer acceptable for these weapons to remain outside the framework of the state, while these groups remain armed disturbing the stability in the province, and sponsoring several assassinations, bullying, evasion, and activities outside the framework of the law.

Will the current negotiations succeed in sparing Daraa the fire that may extend wide, or will the folly of the militants make this fire imminent, as the Syrian Arab Army says that it did not mobilize all these troops to accept anything less than the return of all the lands of Hauran to the authority of the Syrian state and the return of Al-Sabah to it.

Morning Daraa, isn’t it about time?

The American project moved from the city of Daraa after the first disturbances in mid-March 2011.

Armed groups emerged and the Military Operation Center (MOC) was established in Jordan, which is still led by American, British, Israeli, Jordanian, and Gulf officers.

The Zionist security interests required the creation of a buffer zone, similar to the experience of Antoine Lahd’s army in southern Lebanon.

The complexities of the southern region imposed themselves on the reconciliation agreement in Daraa in 2018, as a result of the Israeli concern.

Reconciliation was affirmed after Putin and Trump met in Helsinki in 2018.

There has become a region subject to the intertwined interests between Moscow, Washington, and “Tel Aviv”.

Retaining a large part of the armed groups’ elements under the so-called “Eighth Brigade in the Fifth Corps”.

The terrorist groups in Daraa continued to turn against the manifestations of the state. Military reinforcements of the Syrian army have arrived in the city of Daraa, stressing the handover of light and medium weapons to restore the Syrian state in all its manifestations. There is no alternative.

End of the video transcript

Our informed source in the Syrian leadership told us that during the past years of the conflict since the Russian military joined the Syrian armed forces in fighting NATO-sponsored terrorist groups of ISIS and other Al Qaeda affiliates in the country, the Russians would put forward a plan that might contradict with the plan put in place by the Syrian leadership, in most of the times the Russians would accept to follow with the Syrian plan, in some of the times the Russians would insist, based on promises they got from NATO member states, to alter the Syrian plan and extend truce offers to allow the terrorists to doublethink and drop their weapons, the Russians sincerely think that the terrorists are capable of thinking and of making their own decisions, the Russians, also, sincerely believe that NATO member states have any dignity and would abide by their commitments and obligations, Turkey and the USA as examples, the Russians, as well, come from a region of colder climate unlike the Syrians who are more hotheaded; after the Russians realize that neither the terrorists nor their sponsors do commit to their obligations the Syrian plan is back in place, this is exactly what happened again in Daraa back in July 2018 and now again.

Let’s again hope that this would be a swift military operation and the Syrian Arab Army will clean the whole southern region from NATO terrorists of ISIS and Al Qaeda and focus on cleaning the northeast of Syria.

بحيرة أسماك القرش .. من درعا بدأت .. ويجب ان تنتهي في درعا

 2021/08/04

  naram.serjoonn

لم استفد او اتعلم شيئا من رجب طيب اردوغان سوى انه اعطاني عبارة (لقد نفذ صبري) .. وفي الحقيقة ان صبري على مسلحي درعا قد نفذ .. وللأسف فانني فشلت كلما حاولت ان انسى ان مسلحي درعا وبعض الفعاليات التي عاشت هيجانا وهستيريا لاثارة الناس هم الذين تسببوا في كل معاناتنا حتى هذه اللحظة .. فانا لااستطيع ان انسى ان كل مادفعته سورية من ثمن باهظ حتى هذه اللحظة تسببت به  عنتريات وانفعالات بعض الشخصيات المهووسة في درعا .. ولا أذكر من تلك الأيام من حواراتنا معهم سوى انهم كانوا مهووسين بالعنف والانتقام وكان أحدهم كالثور الهائج لايقبل أي شيء الا ان تسقط كل الدولة .. ويهدم فيها كل شيء .. ولايقبل بشكل أرعن بأي طريقة للصلح والتسامح والهدوء واللجوء لصوت العقل مهما قدمت الدولة من تنازلات ولبت المطالب .. وكانوا قد أصموا آذانهم وباتوا على يقين غريب ان الدولة انتهت وانهم يصنعون الدولة الجديدة في درعا رغم اننا تعبنا ونحن نشرح لهم انهم يدخلون بأرجلهم الى فخ كبير وانهم يعيشون خدعة كبيرة .. وكنت أستغرب أي نوع من الأخلاق تعلم فيه هؤلاء عندما كانوا يأتون الى القصر الرئاسي ويضعون مطالب في منتهى الوقاحة فيستجاب لهم ويقولون امام وسائل الاعلام بصفاقة ان الرئاسة استجابت لمطالبهم دون أي تلكؤ وهي تستحق الشكر .. وماان كانوا يصلون الى درعا حتى يجتمعوا في الساحات ويحتفلوا بشكل هستيري وسوقي باطلاق الشتائم المقذعة والقبيحة على الرئاسة وشخص الرئيس وتحدي الدولة وتقيؤ نفس الشعارات التي ذهبوا بها الى دمشق وأجيبوا عليها دون اعتراض ..

كنت أتساءل فعلا عن مستوى الوطنية والعقل والأخلاق في هذه الجموع والشخصيات التي لاتملك أي تقدير للخطر الذي تدفع البلاد اليه رغم توسلنا اليهم وتوسل الشعب السوري لهم ان يتم الاصغاء لصوت العقل .. وصرت اتساءل ان كان من اللائق والمناسب ان تستقبل هذه الشخصيات الموتورة في القصر الرئاسي بعد اليوم طالما انها على هذه السوية من الرعونة والوقاحة والهستيريا والجنون والتهور .. رغم اننا كنا نحذرهم انهم يأخذون البلاد الى الدمار .. ولكن ماكان يفاجئني انهم كانوا مثل اسماك القرش التي تشم رائحة الدم فتهتاج وتزداد شراسة .. فكلما كان أحدنا يشير الى خطر نزيف الدم كانوا يستثارون ويصابون بالجنون وكأنهم يسعون الى الدم ويتوقون الى السباحة فيه .. ولم تكن هناك طريقة لايقاف هذا الاندفاع الفاقد للعقل .. فلاعقل ولا منطق ولا حرص على السلم الأهلي ولا تفكير لأمتار قليلة ان العنف سيأتي بالعنف وان من الأفضل ان نجنب البلاد الفوضى .. بل كان بعضهم يقول انهم يتمنون تدمير كل شيء من اجل ماسموه (الحرية والكرامة) دون الاخذ بعين الاعتبار ان لاكرامة ولا حرية مع هذا الكم الهائل من العنف والحقد الاسود .. ووصلت منذ الأسابيع الأولى الى نتيجة قاطعة وهي ان النقاش مع هذه الأسماك الهائجة عبثي وبلا جدوى .. وانهم غالبا كانوا فعلا كما قال الراحل القذافي يتعاطون نوعا خاصا من المهلوسات والحشيش .. ولذلك ان النقاش لن يفيد وتمنيت ان توفر الرئاسة الوقت والجهد وان ينفذ صبرها وترسل الوحدات الخاصة وتعالج الامر بطريقة تليق بهذا النوع من الشراسة والرعونة والعناد والغباء الذي سيجر البلاد الى كارثة ..

ولكن صبر الدولة السورية كان كبيرا الى حد مثير للدهشة وبقيت تتعامل مع هؤلاء الضالين على انهم أبناء الوطن رغم انهم كانوا ألد أعداء الوطن .. وفي المعلومات الدقيقة كانوا يستقبلون ضباط استخبارات عربا وغربيين وإسرائيليين .. وكان من الواضح ان إسرائيل تريد ان تتحول درعا الى مدينة للعملاء الذين ارسلوا السلاح الكيماوي الى معارك تل الحارة ضد الجيش السوري والذي تسبب بمجزرة كيماوية بحق الجنود وبغطاء غربي أصر على ان يدير العين العمياء على تلك الحادثة رغم كل الرسائل السورية الى بان كيمون الذي أرسلت له الصور والوثائق ولكنها اختفت ولم تظهر الى أي علن .. الا ان الموتورين في درعا في نفس الوقت الذي كانوا يرتكبون المجازر الكيماوية بحق الجيش السوري كانوا يشكلون فرقة مستعربة للاسرائيلييين .. قامت بتدمير شبكات الرادارات وشبكات التشويش الالكتروني التي تؤذي الجيش الإسرائيلي .. وهي التي تسببت في اول خروقات الطيران الإسرائيلي عندما حدثت البقع العمياء في الشبكة نتيجة التدمير الواسع الذي ارتكبه مسلحو درعا ..

بالفعل نفذ صبري منذ زمن طويل .. وعندما كانت دبابات الجيش السوري تقترب من درعا كنت أحس ان ناري تبرد لأن العدالة تتحقق ومحاكمة الخونة يجب ان تكون في قلب المدينة .. محاكمات ميدانية للعملاء .. ولكن فوجئت ان المسلحين لجؤوا الى التمسكن ولعب دور الضحايا المغرر بهم وانهم يحتاجون الى بعض الوقت لانهاء هذا التمرد والتخلص من الشخصيات الاجرامية بينهم وهي التي تهددهم .. وطلبت اميريكا من الرئيس بوتين ان يتوسط كي يهدئ الأمور لأن المتمردين يائسون ..

ثم تبين ان هذه الفصائل تشم اليوم رائحة الدم ويزداد هياجها .. وهي جائعة للعنف .. ومتعطشة للدمار .. ولكن يجب ان أرفع صوتي الآن وأقول ان صبري وصبر السوريين قد نفذ .. وان هؤلاء القتلة والمهووسين المتمرسين بين الناس وتديرهم المخابرات الإسرائيلية يجب ان تتم معاملتهم بمنتهى القسوة ومنتهى العنف .. والا تأخذنا بهم رحمة ولاشفقة .. وايقاف عملية ارتهان اهالي درعا بقوة البلطجة لهؤلاء المسلحين جزاء نكالا بما جرّوه على جميع السوريين من عذابات بدأت مع جنونهم عام 2011 ولانزال ندفع ثمنه حتى هذه اللحظة في انقطاع الخبز والكهرباء والوقود وتراجع الليرة .. كل مانشهده اليوم من تراجع وحصار اقتصادي سببه هو تلك المجموعات العنيفة المتهورة التي عملت ولاتزال تعمل بإدارة إسرائيلية في مدينة درعا ..

لقد نفذ صبرنا جميعا .. وأتمنى ان لانعود الى أي مفاوضات مع هذه المجموعات لأنه مضيعة للوقت .. وانه آن الأوان أن تثأر كل سورية من ذلك المستنقع الذي تتجمع فيها أسماك القرش منذ عام 2011 .. وان تغلق هذه الصفحة الى الابد مهما كلفنا الثمن .. وانا على يقين بان الدرس الذي ستتلقاه هذه المجموعات سيتردد صداه في ادلب وبين القسديين .. لأن إسرائيل ترعاها مباشرة في درعا .. واقتلاع هذا الوضع الشاذ سيعني ان العقاب سينال كل الآثمين بحق الوطن وكل الخونة مهما كان الداعم والغطاء.. حتى لو كانوا تحت رعاية قوة إقليمية .. إسرائيلية او تركية او أمريكية .. وانا على قناعة أن الذي بدأ في درعا لايمكن ان ينتهي الا من درعا .. وأن البحيرة لايجب ان تترك فيها التماسيح او اسماك القرش .. كي يعود الهدوء الى كل البحيرة .. وتعود قطعان الظباء والغزلان والطيور لتشرب الماء دون ان تنهش .. فلقد زاد الظمأ .. وآن أن نشرب الماء دون ان نرى ظلال التماسيح وأسماك القرش تتجول تحت سطح الماء ونحن لانكاد نرتوي من وطننا ..

UNCOVERING REASON PREVENTING DARAA AL-BALAD AGREEMENT

Uncovering Reason Preventing Daraa Al-Balad Agreement
Illustrative Image

Written by Khaled Iskef.

ISIS armed group, holed up in the outskirts of Daraa al-Balad, refused to implement the agreement concluded between the Central Committee with the Syrian state.

The sources indicated that the deployed armed groups in Daraa Al-Balad had agreed to implement the terms of the agreement, which stipulated to temporarily stop the Syrian army operations in the region, and return to negotiation in exchange for the release of two wanted men, one of them is called Hafu and another Moa’ed Harfouche, who are both leaders of an ISIS group.

The Syrian Security and Military Committee gave the central committee of Daraa a deadline till August 2nd to release the wanted, otherwise they’ll return to the military option, while the residents of Daraa Al-Balad demanded to release them and avoid new clashes.

The sources described the situation in Daraa as unstable, in light of the militants’ delay to agree on the settlement that includes the handling over arms to the Syrian state, setting the situation of the wanted, deportation of those who reject the settlement to the north of Syria, and deploying security and military points in Daraa al-Balad to restore stability there.

It was pointed out that the governorate was currently living in a state of cautious calm, as people fear the confrontations similar to those happened last Thursday, while the time limit for implementing the agreement was not clear.

The Syrian army has recently sent its reinforcements to Daraa in order to extend full control over Daraa Al-Balad and all areas in the countryside, noting that Daraa Al-Balad was the main area where the militants gather. Ending the escalation there is an essential step in restoring stability to the governorate, which has not reached calm since the implementation of the reconciliation and settlement agreements in 2018, amid continuous demands from civilians to restore security and safety in their governorate.

DARAA’S REBELS REFUSE SETTLEMENT AND CLASHES CONTINUE WITH SUPPORT FROM GREATER IDLIB

Daraa's Rebels Refuse Settlement And Clashes Continue With Support From Greater  Idlib
Video here

Daraa has been in the spotlight in Syria, leaving both Greater Idlib and the ISIS terrorists in Deir Ezzor in the background.

The situation is in a state of escalation, following several weeks of siege warfare by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and a subsequent settlement agreement.

The settlement agreement was concluded on July 25th and came into effect on July 28th. This attempt at peace, however, failed in its entirety. Instead of the situation subsiding and calm returning to Daraa, clashes took place all around.

Early on July 29, the SAA launched a military operation to enter and secure Daraa al-Balad, the southern part of Daraa city.

In the very first hours of the attacks, SAA troops managed to secure the outskirts of Daraa al-Balad.

The decision to storm the area has yet to be taken. Currently, the army is shelling posts occupied by local gunmen.

The SAA operation went on for one day before reports of another negotiation for a ceasefire began.

Former rebels captured around 30 posts, camps and checkpoints of the SAA in the eastern and western countryside of Daraa.

Syrian authorities and the former rebels reportedly agreed on a temporary ceasefire on July 30. However, clashes kept happening in different parts of Daraa, mainly in the south. More than 40 service members of the SAA were captured on July 29 in response to an army operation in Daraa al-Balad. The former rebels released some of the captives on July 31st, amid reports of yet another agreement nearing.

In an attempt to throw a wrench into any potential resolution, Greater Idlib’s ruler – Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) voiced its support for the former rebels and their “cause”.

Led by HTS, the Idlib factions stepped up their artillery and rocket strikes on government-held areas in response to SAA shelling on the al-Zaway Mountian in southern Idlib and in support of Daraa’s former rebels.

It all led to Syrian authorities giving local leaders in Daraa al-Balad time until August 1 to accept a new reconciliation agreement.

Under the agreement, 132 local gunmen will be expelled to opposition-held areas in northern Syria.

Tight security measures would also be implemented in Daraa al-Balad.

Instead of an end to hostilities, the Greater Idlib factions renewed their attacks on August 1st in support of the Daraa rebels, and little was achieved.

August 2nd saw a meeting between officers of the Russian military police, the Syrian Minister of Defense and representatives of the former rebels that took place in the stadium in the center of Daraa.

On the same day, the rebels central committee in Daraa rejected the demands of the SAA to hand over their weapons and allow Syrian troops to enter the military checkpoints in Daraa al-Balad.

Clashes are continuing all around Daraa, and especially in the south of the city, it appears that no form of resolution is anywhere near.

Yemeni Resistance Liberates Two Areas in Al-Bayda Province2″

By Staff, Agencies

Yemeni forces liberated two districts in al-Bayda Province from the control of Takfiri militants backed by a Saudi-led coalition waging war on Yemen.

Spokesman for Yemen’s Armed Forces, Brigadier General Yehya Saree, said in a statement on Friday that the Yemeni forces had completed the second stage of a military operation dubbed al-Nasr al-Mobin [Manifest Victory] in al-Bayda, liberating the districts of Numan and Natee and defeating Takfiri militants associated with the Saudi-led coalition.

Saree said the military operation had left hundreds of Saudi-backed mercenaries and Takfiri militants killed and injured, adding that the Yemeni forces had also captured a number of the militants and confiscated their weapons.

According to the spokesman, the Yemeni troops are about to purge the remaining areas in al-Bayda of the militants and most of the province’s districts are now under the Yemeni forces’ control.

“The Yemeni forces would continue with their operations unhampered until the end of the Saudi-led war and the liberation of all Yemeni territories,” Saree stressed.

On July 13, Saree announced that the Yemeni forces had launched the first stage of Operation al-Nasr al-Mobin to push members of al-Qaeda and Daesh [Arabic for ‘ISIS/ISIL’] out of their strongholds in al-Bayda.

Saudi Arabia, backed by the US and regional allies, launched the devastating war on Yemen in March 2015 with the goal of suppressing a popular uprising that had toppled a Riyadh-friendly regime.

Yemeni armed forces and allied Popular Committees have been defending the country since, and, over six years into the invasion, the Saudi-led forces remain bogged down in what has become Saudi Arabia’s Vietnam War.

The Saudi war has left hundreds of thousands of Yemenis dead, and displaced millions more. The war has also destroyed Yemen’s infrastructure and spread famine and infectious diseases across the Arab country.

بين أسباب ذعر الغرب من انتصار المقاومة في تموز… وأهداف حربه الاقتصاديّة ضدّ لبنان

July 26, 2021

حسن حردان

 في مثل هذه الأيام سطّر رجال المقاومة البطولات في ميادين مواجهة قوات الاحتلال الغازية خلال عدوانها على لبنان في تموز من عام 2006  وحطّموا خلالها جبروت جيش الاحتلال الصهيونيّ وأذلوا ضباطه وجنوده ولقنوهم دروساً في القتال وجهاً لوجه في بنت جبيل ومارون الراس وعيتا الشعب وعيترون وسهل الخيام ووادي الحجير والغندوريّة إلخ… وقد تجسّد ذلك في حالة الانهيار في معنويات جنود النخبة الصهاينة الذين وجدوا أنفسهم أمام قتال حقيقي أصبحوا فيه شخوصاً يصطادهم رجال المقاومة في الليل والنهار، فيما دبابات الميركافا التي كان يحتمي فيها جنود العدو تحوّلت إلى توابيت لهم بعد أن أحرقها المقاومون بصواريخ الكورنيت…

بفضل هذه البطولات التي جسّدها المقاومون كان يُصنع النصر في كل ساحات المواجهة في البر والبحر وفي تحويل مدن ومستعمرات الكيان في فلسطين المحتلة إلى ساحة حرب افتقد فيها الصهاينة الأمن والأمان، مما هزّ وخلخل مرتكزات وجود كيانهم الغاصب، وقلب المعادلة رأسا على عقب، فبدل أن تُسحَق المقاومة وتحطّم قوتها وتنهار شعبيتها ويقوّض نموذجها الناجح في إلحاق الهزيمة بجيش الاحتلال، وتحرير الأرض من دنسه بلا قيد ولا شرط، وجدنا انّ المقاومة هي مَن سحق ودمّر جيش العدو الذي حاول دون جدوى أن يمحو آثار ونتائج وتداعيات هزيمته عام 2000… فإذا به يُمنى بهزيمة أشدّ وأقسى…

لقد أدّت هذه الهزيمة الجديدة لجيش العدو الصهيونيّ إلى نتيجتين:

النتيجة الأولى، ازدياد شعبية المقاومة التي أثبتت مجدّداً أنها قادرة على تحقيق آمال وتطلعات جماهير الأمة العربيّة، حيث أخفقت الجيوش العربيّة، وذلك بتأكيدها أنها قادرة على إلحاق الهزيمة تلو الهزيمة بجيش العدو وتحطيم أسطورته، واستعادة الحقوق المغتَصبة.. ولهذا نجحت المقاومة الشعبيّة المسلّحة في إدخال كيان العدو في مسار الهزيمة والتراجع والعجز عن تحقيق النصر في مواجهة المقاومين.. وبالتالي فإنّ هذا الكيان كما حقق النصر على العرب تلو النصر واحتلّ الأرض قطعة إثر قطعة، فإنّ المقاومة ستلحق به الهزيمة تلو الهزيمة وصولاً إلى إنهاء وجوده غير الشرعيّ على أرض فلسطين المحتلة…

النتيجة الثانية، قرع جرس الإنذار في العواصم الغربية الاستعمارية، التي خيّم عليها الذعر وأدركت انّ الكيان، الذي زرعته في فلسطين المحتلة ودعمته وزوّدته بكلّ عناصر القوة لحراسة مصالحها الاستعمارية ومنع توحّد الأمة العربية، وضرب حركات التحرّر وتقويض الأنظمة التقدمية، أدركت انّ هذا الكيان بات عاجزاً عن الاستمرار في تحقيق هذه المهمة، ويحتاج إلى مَن يحميه، لا بل انّ وجوده أصبح بخطر حقيقي، ولهذا فإنّ درء هذا الخطر والحفاظ على وجود واستقرار هذا الكيان أصبح مرتبطاً بتقويض المقاومة التي تجرّأت على إلحاق الهزيمة به، خاصة أنّ استمرار هذه المقاومة وتزايد قوّتها لم يعُد يهدّد فقط وجود الكيان الصهيوني، وإنما بات يهدّد أيضاً النفوذ الاستعماريّ الغربيّ في الوطن العربي، وبالتالي تحرير ثروات الأمة من نهب الشركات الغربية…

انطلاقاً مما تقدّم، يمكن تفسير لماذا كلّ هذه الحروب الإرهابية والاقتصادية التي تستهدف هذه المقاومة والدول الداعمة لها، لا سيما سورية وإيران… ولماذا شدّدت واشنطن وحلفاؤها في الغرب، الحرب الاقتصادية على لبنان، وعمدت إلى دعم أحزاب ومجموعات من الـ NGOZ، وأغدقت عليها الأموال الطائلة باعتراف المسؤول في الخارجية الأميركية ديفيد هيل الذي قال إن واشنطن أنفقت 10 مليارات دولار في لبنان ضمن استراتيجية مواجهة حزب الله..

ولهذا فإنّ ما يعاني منه لبنان واللبنانيون هذه الأيام من أزمات مالية واقتصادية واجتماعية خانقة إنما يعود في جزء أساسي إلى هذه الاستراتيجية الأميركية، القائمة على إثارة الاضطرابات في لبنان ودعم قوى سياسية وأهلية، بالتزامن مع تشديد الحصار الاقتصادي ومنع الحلول المتاحة لهذه الأزمات، وذلك بهدف تحميل حزب الله المقاوم وحلفائه المسؤولية عن الأزمات ومحاولة تأليب اللبنانيين ضدّهم في سياق خطة لإخضاع لبنان للشروط الأميركية، مقابل رفع الحصار الاقتصادي…

لكن المقاومة التي عرفت كيف تلحق الهزيمة بقوى الإرهاب في الجرود اللبنانية وتنجز التحرير الثاني، وتسهم إلى جانب حلف المقاومة في إلحاق الهزائم بجيوش الإرهاب الأميركية الصهيونية الغربية في سورية، والعراق، قادرة على إحباط أهداف الحرب الاقتصادية الأميركية الجديدة.. وهو ما كان قد وعد به قائد المقاومة سماحة السيد حسن نصرالله، في بداية تفجّر الاحتجاجات الشعبية في 17 تشرين 2019، عندما قال، لن نركع ولن نجوع وسوف نقتلك، مخاطباً الأميركيّ بطريقة غير مباشرة…

ولهذا بعد نحو سنة وثمانية أشهر، نجد اليوم أن العواصم الغربية تعبّر عن قلقها من أن يؤدي اندفاع الأوضاع في لبنان إلى الانهيار الشامل وتحلل الدولة اللبنانية نتيجة الحصار الاقتصادي الخانق الذي تفرضه على لبنان، الى هجرة اللبنانيين والنازحين السوريين نحو الدول الأوروبية، وتعزيز موقف حزب الله وتمكينه من القيام بدور الدولة في حلّ أزمات اللبنانيين من خلال تأمين الدعم من إيران وسورية والعراق إلخ… وتحقيق التكامل الاقتصاديّ المشرقيّ… مما يشكل ضربة قاصمة للنفوذ الأميركي الغربي في لبنان.. لهذا بدأت العواصم الغربية تتحدّث عن ضرورة تقديم المساعدات للبنان لمنع انهيار الدولة، لدرء النتائج السلبيّة على نفوذها في لبنان، وتجنّب هجرة جماعيّة باتجاه الدول الأوروبيّة.. وفي كلتا الحالتين يمكن القول إنّ خطة إحداث الانقلاب السياسي في لبنان بوساطة الحصار الاقتصادي واستغلال أزمات اللبنانيين الناتجة عن الحصار، لتطويق المقاومة ونزع سلاحها وفرض اتفاق لتحديد الحدود البحريّة يخدم الأطماع الصهيونية، انّ هذه الخطة الانقلابية أخفقت، ولهذا لجأت العواصم الغربية إلى استبدالها بنسخة أخرى تقضي بالعمل على محاولة تحقيق هذا الانقلاب في الانتخابات النيابية المقبلة عبر استغلال الأزمات وانفجار المرفأ وتقديم الدعم المالي للقوى والمجموعات التابعة للغرب، للفوز بأغلبية المقاعد في البرلمان بما يمكنها من إعادة إنتاج السلطة والسيطرة على مفاصل القرار التشريعيّ والتنفيذيّ للعمل على تنفيذ الأهداف الأميركية الغربية المذكورة آنفاً…

لهذا على اللبنانيين أن يدركوا جيداً مَن يقف وراء أزماتهم ومعاناتهم، وأن يعوا انّ مقاومتهم كانت ولا تزال وستبقى هي درعهم الواقي وضمانة أمنهم واستقرارهم، وحمايتهم من العدوانية والأطماع الصهيونية، وطريق خلاصهم من براثن الهيمنة الاستعمارية الغربية التي تسعى الى إخضاع لبنان وإعادته إلى زمن قوّته في ضعفه، حيث كان مستباحاً من قبل العدو الصهيونيّ…

Israel Bombs in Homs Province, the Second Aggression in 48 Hours

 ARABI SOURI  

Israel bombs Al Qussayr Homs Syria 22 July 2021

Israel carried out its second bombing within two days during the Islamic holiest Eid holiday, this time it targeted some posts in the Qussayr region in the southwest of Homs province.

A Syrian military spokesperson in a statement conveyed by SANA said: “At about 1:13 in the morning today, the Israeli enemy carried out air aggression from northeast Beirut, targeting some points in the Al-Qusayr area in the Homs countryside. Our air defense media confronted the aggression’s missiles and shot down most of them, while the damage was limited to material.”

Ever since the Syrian air defense units shot down an advanced Israeli F16 fighter jet and caused severe damage to an even more advanced Israeli F35 in February 2018, Israeli fighter jets have completely avoided entering the Syrian air space to carry out their bombings, a flagrant violation of International Law, the UN Charter, the 1974 disengagement agreement and the related United Nations Security Council Resolution 350 of the same year.

The video is also on BitChute.

This latest aggression comes from northeast of the Lebanese capital Beirut; Lebanon is known to have a US-owned army with no air or air defense capabilities, furthermore, the Saudi-loyalist Lebanese officials have been trying hard to use the Lebanese army against their opponents in their country with the blessings of the USA and prevent allowing their country’s army to procure military gears from sources not approved by the United States of America. The Lebanese Army is in such bad shape that the Army commander had to go on a tour abroad literally begging for food for his troops.

The Syrian army can enforce an air shield over the Lebanese air space against Israeli intruding fighter jets and missiles but avoiding to do so in order to prevent a renewal of the Lebanese civil war as Saudi-sponsored militia will consider the Syrian air defense cover over their country as a violation of their independence and sovereignty, unlike the Israeli fighter jets which are welcomed by them! The Syrian army might, however, take the step sooner than thought before as the Israelis are repeatedly taking advantage of this particular situation to attack Syria. The Anti-Lebanon Mountains form a large, high, and tough terrain which Israel uses to fire its missiles against Syria from behind these mountains and instantly flee back to their bases.

After removing the war criminal Netanyahu who is accused of corruption, even by Israel’s standard, the current Israeli regime is trying its best to export its internal problems by instigating a regional war taking advantage of the presence of US troops in the region before their withdrawal as planned by the Biden Junta. Israel needs these US troops to be sacrificed in the war it’s trying to start to drag the United States into its war in order to protect the Israeli settlers.

The humiliating failure of the Israeli army in its latest aggression against Gaza at times of its top readiness when it was preparing for its largest military drill delivered a severe blow to the morale of the Israeli soldiers and settlers, and after its repeated humiliating failures in the face of the Lebanese Hezb Allah resistance, the Israeli leadership needs any aggression to regain some of that lost morale before its settlers start packing and return to their home countries en masses.https://syrianews.cc/israel-bombs-masyaf-in-central-syria-on-christmas-eve-as-expected/embed/#?secret=1SWGyH1kMyIsrael chooses religious anniversaries to carry out its aggression

Furthermore, the losses of the NATO-sponsored terrorists in Syria and the imminent Syrian army’s military operation to clean the regions still infested by these terrorists in parts of the north of Syria is another reason the Israelis are carrying out these attacks, to give the terrorists an illusion that they’re not alone fighting the Syrian army when needed. The Syrian leadership has vowed to liberate the last inch of Syria from these terrorists and said that these Israeli attacks will not help save those terrorists.

These latest Israeli escalations can only be seen in this context. Readers must keep in mind that any Israeli aggression is always sanctioned by the US regime and is always covered by the sitting US regime especially after the latest US-Israeli understanding dubbed ‘zero surprises’. Israel by itself is incapable of existing without such US support let alone attack its neighbors.
