TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE: U.S. PATRIOT MISSILES LEAVE SAUDI ARABIA FOR SYRIA?

South Front

The United States has deployed a Patriot defense battery to Syria’s northeast, at least according to the fairy tales told by Kurdish media. This deployment reportedly took place on February 24th in an entirely different reality, since the reports claiming so are entirely fake. Several Kurdish and opposition outlets claimed that the deployment of Patriot batteries is taking place in Alomar and Al-Shaddadi. There could even be more batteries. Reports also claim that the US is improving its capabilities in al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor as well.

The claims of Patriot batteries in northeastern Syria are currently merely fake news, as any review of the photographs, even to casual observers on Twitter, reveals that they show an entirely different location. What is fact is that Washington is truly attempting to increase its presence and capability in Syria.

In another and more realistic report from state outlet SANA, the US sent “shoulder-launched missiles” to northeastern Syria. Two American military helicopters allegedly landed in al-Shaddadi and unloaded artillery shells and shoulder-launched missiles. Prior to this, the coalition built a new airstrip in the al-Omar oil fields in southeastern Deir Ezzor. And the base in al-Hasakah is really being built. These developments, however, aren’t as major as reports make them out to be.

Saudi Arabia, a staunch US ally, one which Washington has vowed to defend and assist, is losing two of its Patriot defense batteries.

The two units in Saudi Arabia were helping to protect the Kingdom’s oil fields, but will likely be replaced by Saudi Patriot batteries. Their effectiveness – or lack thereof – was proven back in 2019, when they failed to protect Aramco’s facilities. As such, even if they were to be relocated in Syria, their usefulness remains in doubt.

Still, the Kurds as US allies are hopeful that the patriot battery remains mighty and capable of protecting its positions as they are likely hoping that it would help protect them against the Turkish Armed Forces.

Washington, though, is focused on Iran, which, especially so far in 2021, it has largely failed to contain. Iran continues expanding its influence in key areas such as Syria, Iraq and Yemen. In Syria, after being subject to ISIS attacks, Tehran’s forces are building new positions in the southern Homs countryside to protect phosphate mines in the region from the ISIS cells responsible.

Empty claims may go around the world quickly, their effectiveness, however, is dubious at this point. The United States is attempting to increase its presence and capabilities in Syria, but so far it appears to be too little too late. Iran’s presence in Syria and influence in the entire region continue to grow despite containment efforts by Washington and its allies.

Biden Forces Vacate a ‘Wheat Silos Army Base’ in Hasakah after Looting it

ARABI SOURI 

Biden Forces US Military Syria Trump Obama Wheat Oil

Biden forces positioned in a wheat silos facility in Hasakah province vacated their base at dawn and moved their troops and military gear into Iraq.

The occupation forces of the US Army’s Oil Thieves Regiment previously illegally occupying the Tal Allo Silos facility in the Yarubiya region, in the northeast of Hasakah vacated the post and moved its troops, vehicles, weapons, and equipment into Iraq through the illegal border crossing in the same region at dawn today, Sana reports.

After stealing the wheat and grains for months and burning farmlands they couldn’t steal, directly by uniformed army troops and indirectly through proxy terrorist and separatist armed groups working for them; the Biden oil thieves move appears more like a redeployment especially that it comes merely a few days after Jospeph Biden illegally smuggled soldiers and military equipment from Iraq into Syria in its illegal military base in Ash-Shaddadi in the southern countryside of Hasakah.

The Biden forces coming in 4 helicopters brought with them containers loaded with missiles and different weapons to the base they occupy.

There isn’t any change in the Biden’s regime policy toward Syria which started during his term under Obama and continued through the disgraced Trump 4 years term of war criminal at the White House, maybe only in selecting the wording of their foreign policy lies in less vulgar language, unlike his predecessor who stated that the US troops in Syria are deployed to steal the Syrian oil not the lies they maintained for years of fighting ISIS and other terrorist groups created by their own CIA and sponsored by their own allies and proxies in the region.https://videopress.com/embed/T16GfYmB?preloadContent=metadata&hd=1

The US troops in Syria whether working for Obama, Trump, or now Biden have plundered hundreds of millions of barrels of Syrian oil, tens of thousands of metric tonnes of wheat, and other grains, and are systematically turning Syria’s food basket into a wasteland.

Despite the hardship after a full decade of fighting terrorist groups sponsored by the world’s superpowers and super-rich countries in Syria, the Syrian people are suffering from the unprecedented draconian sanctions dubbed Caesar Act and the EU inhumane sanctions renewed in last June 2020, with both the USA and the EU arrogantly refusing to lift their sanctions to allow the Syrian people to breathe, a policy that doesn’t serve the interest of any of the EU member countries, the USA or any of their citizens, it does only serve Israel, the separatists Kurds, and ISIS.

War on Syria: Israel and the Kurdish Card

South Front

 01.02.2021 

The conflict in Syria does not seem to be nearing its end despite the diplomatic efforts to find a solution for it. Every participant in the standoff is undertaking actions to pursue their interests, and many of them evidently are in conflict with one another.

Israel and its never-ending fight against the ‘Iranian threat’, as usual, appears to be in the middle of it.

On January 31st, along the separation line of the Golan Heights, a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) post was attacked by unknown gunmen. They came from the Israeli-occupied side, and a loud explosion followed. No casualties were reported, and it is possible that Israel was behind it, since the IDF has done raids such as these in the past, including twice in 2020. According to pro-militant sources, the IDF operation was carried out to deter purported Iranian forces in the area.

Israeli media reported that several months ago that in Damascus itself, an unnamed “Western Intelligence Agency” carried out a raid the headquarters of Iran’s Quds Force Unit 840. While the report remains questionable, at minimum, it can be considered as a direct threat to Tehran and Damascus.

In Northeast Syria, a severe conflict appears to be in the making, as US President Joe Biden seems to want an extremely negative outward scenario in order to reverse the limited involvement approach of Donald Trump.  Soon, MSM may get a new ‘war for democracy’ to cover, so, the population can focus less on what is transpiring inside the US.

The US-supported Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) appear to be the prime candidates to lead the situation towards critical mass. Hillary Clinton, and her daughter Chelsea are already moving with propaganda preparations: a Kurdish soap opera, focused on the lives and struggle of Kurdish women who fought not only against ISIS, but also fought for their liberty and their rights.

The Kurdish “freedom fighters” also fight against Turkey and reject a political settlement with Damascus.

Still, the SDF is now emboldened, it has support from the US, and little else in the region, except the poison hand of “friendship” from Israel. If all hell breaks loose, however, it is dubious whether or not Tel Aviv would come running to help.

This, however, does not stop the Kurdish leadership from employing harsh approaches to suppress local discontent with its anti-Syrian approaches. Just recently in Al-Hasakah, a pro-government protest was democratically put down by live fire and killings by the SDF’s “freedom fighters”.

It is an open secret the SDF-controlled area is in fact run by the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) “shadow government” and the SDF itself is full of PKK members, including the SDF commander in chief himself. This creates conditions for a continuous fight against the Turkish forces, and provides additional motivation for the SDF rejection of a political settlement with the Damascus government.

The Kurdish leaders are happy to receive weapons and funds from the US in exchange for loyalty to the project of the dismantling of the Syrian state.

Emboldened by the supposed support from the US, and the recent large deployments that have been carried out, the SDF and co. have recently become more active in their attempts to hinder the interests of Damascus, Russia and Iran.

The SDF’s mismanagement of the situation is further evidenced by the permanent tensions with Arab locals in the controlled areas and the deep humanitarian problems in SDF-run camps for displaced persons, including those affiliated with ISIS members. There are about 27,000 children in the SDF-run Al-Hol camp, where families of ISIS members and supporters are held. ISIS activity has seen an incredible increase in 2021, and the terrorist group would be more than content with “adopting” these young recruits.

With the new administration in Washington, the wind is blowing towards an incredibly violent scenario. The resumption of the ‘active’ policies to ‘deter’ Russia, Iran and the ‘Assad regime’ by playing the Kurdish card creates conditions for a further destabilization of Syria’s northeast. In some scenarios, the situation could swiftly descend into complete chaos.

To avoid this scenario, Kurdish leadership needs to remember that they are short on allies in the region and adapt a more constructive approach towards a political settlement with Damascus. Otherwise it is “highly likely” that dark clouds are soon to come on the horizon and the SDF card will once again become a small coin in the Big Middle Eastern Game.

US-backed DAESH terrorism returns to Iraq, Dr Marwa Osman

A twin suicide bombing on a bustling commercial street in the heart of Baghdad on Thursday killed at least 32 people and wounded more than 100, in an attack that ruptured months of relative calm. Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack which bears the hallmarks of the terrorist group who has carried out numerous similar attacks in Iraq. To discuss this issue with us from Beirut is Laith Marouf political commentator. As the US continues to occupy parts of Syria in a clear violation of the territorial integrity of the Arab country, an Apache attack helicopter belonging to the US military has reportedly crashed in Syria’s northeastern Province of Hasakah, with no information available about the fate of those onboard. The initial deployment of US occupation soldiers to that specific area was meant to plunder the country’s crude oil resources, however now it seems someone is making sure the U.S. abandons their theft efforts.

NATO Supremacists New Round of Frenzied War Crimes in Syria

MIRI WOOD 

Hasakah people protesting cutting off alouk water

NATO supremacists illegally in Syria have gone into a frenzy of increased war crimes against the Levantine republic, on 17 January: The lame duck Trump forces continue to empty silos in the al Jazeera region of grain; Madman Erdogan forces have again turned off water to one million Syrians living in al Hasakah; Trump cannon fodder SDF terrorists have kidnapped more young Syrian men from al Susa and Hajin, Deir Ezzor countryside.

Featured image above, shows thousands of Syrians demanding their water rights, again turned off by Madman Erdogan’s illegal troops occupying the Allouk water station. Video below is a glimpse of the demonstration.

While the transatlantic stenographers do their belly-bumping phony piety in lamentations over the 6 January invasion of the US Capitol by Trump supporters and various undercovers, and fake rend their clothing over 25,000 National Guard soldiers (to protect 1,435 senators and congress members) they remain arrogantly mute over the ongoing kidnappings, murders, bombings, water deprivation and destruction of essential infrastructure in the Arabic, Muslim-majority country of Syria.

The twenty convoy trucks that smuggled more stolen Syrian grain into Iraq were protected by illegal, armored, US vehicles. NATO supremacy means stealing other people’s foods. This massive theft was a follow up to the massive Syrian barley theft of 10 January, which also had the NATO stenographer supremacists on mute.

Trump forces smuggle stolen Syrian grains to Iraq
Trump forces loot and smuggle Syrian grains to Iraq

Depriving a civilian population of their water is also a war crime. In October 2019, NATO Madman Erdogan bombed the electrical grid at the Alouk station. The Syrian electricity army repairs it, after which Erdogan bombed it again, after which it was again repaired, after which Erdogan’s forces invaded and occupied the water plant. NATO supremacy also means trying to crush other people’s countries by stealing their water.

The demonic SDF separatists were originally created under the NATO supremacist Obama regime, which collected international wetworkers to teach the subsequent cannon fodder how to terrorize the Syrian population. During the Obama years, atrocities against Syria were perpetrated ‘by accident,’ as when he meant to war criminally bomb ISIS but accidentally slaughtered 83 Syrian soldiers defending their homeland.

 

The Trump regime expanded on Obama’s war crimes, intentionally bombed Syrian soldiers for al Qaeda, and set up criminal military bases in Syria (whereas Obama only sent in ‘spec operatives.’ See “Cue the Illegal Orangettes,” here.).

Today, a “weapons shop” run under Madman Erdogan’s al Qaeda forces in Idlib, blew up. It was located in a crowded market, near to a school. Western propagandists have remained silent on this atrocity, also. Imagine such a scene in Paris, London, Berlin, Philly, or Los Angeles being normalized:

Idlib explosion in weapons shop kills one person

Since the “deadly siege” on the US Capitol, 6 January, western supremacists have been aghast, horrified by a small fraction of what those western supremacists do to non-western countries, with impunity, on daily basis. Our unindicted war criminals that drop NATO weapons into the hands of savage beasts in Syria, call the psychopaths “freedom fighters” and cheer the horrors they perpetrate on the Syrian people, in the name of the imperial paraphilia, “democracy.”

Here are some examples of our glorious freedom and democracy, in DC, today, as inauguration day approaches; it does give the appearance of a military occupation, the type of which our terrified politicians in the Capitol on the first Wednesday of the first month of the new year, have imposed on mostly brown-skinned and/or Muslim majority countries for decades.

 

Some of the detritus, hysteria, and shame/lessness of DC may eventually be put into a box labeled “Trump,” and we shall probably return to our collective criminal work as imperial NATO supremacists, entitled to tying up those tedious loose ends of uppity countries refusing to be crushed by western humanitarian democracy.

When that time comes, may we watch Syria’s President Bashar al Assad, walking freely and safely among his fellow countrymen and women, and may we honestly denounce the supremacists among us.

Scores of US-backed SDF militants injured in separate attacks by unidentified persons in Raqqa, Deir Ezzor and Hasaka

ST

Created on Saturday, 19 December 2020 09:14 

A number of US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Militia were injured on Friday in separate attacks by unidentified persons on their positions and axes of movement in Deir Ezzor,  Raqqa and Hasaka.

 Local sources told SANA reporter in Raqqa that an explosive device, planted by unidentified persons near Bteiman junction, exploded when a military car affiliated to the SDF militia was driving along the Al-Mankhar road. Another explosive device also targeted an SDF military car on the road between the village of Hazima and Tal al-Samen to the north of Raqqa. The two attacks resulted in the injury of several SDF militants.

In Deir Ezzor, local sources said that several SDF militants were injured in an explosive device attack in the vicinity of Al-Hisan town, while another SDF militant was injured when an unidentified person opened fire at him in Al-Howl camp, to the north of Hasaka.

 In a relevant context, a civilian was injured when SDF militants opened fire at citizens directly during their raids on several villages in the vicinity of Qamishli city in Hasaka. The militants also kidnapped a number of civilians during theses raids which targeted the villages of Al-Raheyyeh, Al-Abou Al-Shamali, Al-Abou Al-Janoubi, Hajeyeh Al-Kabireh, Al-Matashir, Al-Khalil and Sharmoukh which are part of Tal Hamis area in the southeast on Hasaka, according to local sources.

The sources added that the SDF militia also besieged Abu Fara’ village in the northeast of Hasaka and kidnapped a number of locals on the backdrop of expelling SDF militants who earlier came in a military car and tried to forcibly take young men from the village with the aim of recruiting them within the SDF ranks.

US Illegal Military Base Bombed with Mortars in an Oil Field in Deir Ezzor

A US illegal military base in the Al Omar oil field was targeted with mortar shelling by an unknown group in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside, east of Syria.

The US and their Kurdish separatist SDF armed groups combed the area with their medium and heavy weapons looking for the attackers, they did not report casualties among them at the time of this report.

Trump forces have increased their illegal military presence in Syria, especially in the northeastern provinces of Raqqa, Deir Ezzor, and Hasakah, since Trump ordered, said he is withdrawing his troops from the country, which later he added that he’s keeping ‘some’ of his troops there to ‘protect the oil’ because ‘he likes oil’, which meant depriving millions of ordinary Syrian families of their heat, transportation fuel, and fuel to bake their bread.

The ‘Oil Thieves Regiment’ of the US Army last February expanded its military base in the Omar Oil field making it the largest in the country in the largest oil field in the country.

Last October, the US Army’s ‘Oil Thieves Regiment’ operating in Syria started building a new illegal military base in the Baguz town in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, this would be their 4th illegal military base in the province and the 9th in Syria.

US proxies of the Kurdish separatist SDF armed groups protect the Oil Thieves Regiment while the other US proxy of ISIS engages the Syrian Arab constantly in order to keep them busy from reaching the oil thieves in the northeast of their country.

CENTCOM: US Backed Troops in Syria With Armor to ‘Show Teeth’ to Russians

Posted by INTERNATIONALIST 360° on

Sputnik-Middle East
The US military augmented its contingent in Syria with a platoon of armored fighting vehicles to show strength and intimidate Russian troops, Central Command (CENTCOM) chief Frank McKenzie said on Thursday.

McKenzie explained in an interview with the Defense One media outlet that the decision was made a couple of months ago in response to a Russian patrol that was not coordinated with the Americans.

“We thought it is appropriate to show them a little more teeth up there. So we brought an M2 Bradley platoon, which is armored fighting vehicle,” he said.

The general added that he decided to keep the armor in Syria to ensure that US servicemen on the ground have the protection they need to carry out tasks assigned to them.

McKenzie said that around 900 US troops are stationed in Syria in two clusters – near the country’s southern border with Jordan and in the northeast area where they assist Kurdish militias from the Syrian Democratic Forces.

He denied rumors attributed to former envoy James Jeffrey that the military and diplomats played “shell games” to hide actual numbers from President Donald Trump to keep as many forces in the country as possible, contrary to the president’s desire.

McKenzie also said that it is the SDF fighters who defend oil fields in Syria and US troops just enable them to do it. Control over reserves is necessary to prevent them from falling into the hands of the Islamic State terrorist group (outlawed in Russia), and allowing them to regenerate a nascent economy in eastern Syria.

Since 2015, the US has established nine military bases in northeastern Syria. Five of them are located in Hasek, and four more are in the vicinity of the oil fields in Deir ez-Zor. At the end of last year, US President Donald Trump approved a plan according to which several hundred American troops will remain in Syria with the task of controlling the oil fields in the northeast of the country.

Erdogan Terrorists Looted and Burned Several Houses in Northern Syria

  ARABI SOURI

Hamza Division - Erdogan Hamzat Muslim Brotherhood terrorists

Terrorists loyal to the Turkish madman Erdogan burned several houses of local Syrians in the village of Bab Al Faraj, in the northern Hasakah countryside.

The anti-Islamic Muslim Brotherhood terrorists in their continuous crimes to Israelize the northern regions of Syria under their control looted the houses of the locals in Bab Al Faraj village in Abu Rassin area, southwest of Qamishli in the northern Hasakah countryside.

https://goo.gl/maps/4TXftsZYniwsp1e28

After looting the valuables, furniture, and electronic devices from the houses the terrorists burned it down to hide their crime and prevent the locals from returning to their properties. Erdogan promised the terrorists he’s bringing from other areas in Syria and from other countries to give them the houses of the locals in areas the Turkish army and its proxy Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda armed groups take control of.

Two days ago, Turkey-sponsored terrorists desecrated and looted the Church of Mar Touma in the city of Ras Al Ain in the northern Hasakah countryside in order to expel the Christian communities still living in their city.

The Turkish regime of Erdogan is carrying out a demographic change within northern Syrian province where members of the radical Muslim Brotherhood organization are housed with their families and in turn, they operate as a buffer zone between secular Syria and Turkey being radicalized by Erdogan’s ruling Muslim Brotherhood AK Party. Secularism is contagious and the Turkish madman is afraid this would loosen his grip on the Turkish state in the future as if he’s living forever or his neo-Ottoman has a future in the region.

A terror attack against a civilians bus killed three civilians and injured 12 others in the vicinity of Ras Al Ain, in the northwestern province of Hasakah, at the borders with Turkey.

A booby-trapped parked car was detonated in a road in the village of Tal Halaf next to a moving civilian passenger bus which immediately killed three of the passengers, injured 12 others, some of who sustained severe and life-threatening injuries.

The explosion of the parked vehicle left the passengers’ bus completely torched and large material damage in the area.

Terror attack Tal Halaf Ras Al Ayn - Hasakah Syria

Terrorist groups loyal to the Turkish madman Erdogan infested the northern regions of Syria under the protection of the US forces and under false claims of ‘fighting terror’ referring to the other US and Israel-sponsored Kurdish separatists in the area. Turkey never fought ISIS or Nusra Front (al-Qaeda Levant) terrorist groups throughout the past 9.5 years, on the contrary, terrorists of these groups in their tens of thousands were hosted, trained, armed, and funded by and through the Turkish regime of Erdogan on Turkish territories then smuggled into Syria to kill and maim the Syrian people.

Neither Trump nor Erdogan, the two heads of criminality with forces operating in the northern regions of Syria, hide their ill intentions towards the Syrian people, Trump declares publicly he wants to steal the Syrian oil and Erdogan declares publicly he wants to be a leader in the ‘Greater Israel Project’ where he will steal more land and is dreaming of reviving the most-hated anti-Islamic Ottoman sultanate on the account of the people of the region of all religions. Both unindicted war criminals are depriving the Syrian people of their own riches in their country, especially the Syrian oil and Syrian wheat mainly coming from the Syrian northeastern provinces of Hasakah and Deir Ezzor.

The terrorist attacks as this one are meant to intimidate the local population to flee their homes after which Erdogan can Israelize the region with terrorists following his anti-Islamic Muslim Brotherhood doctrine.

US SENDS M2A2 BRADLEY IFVS TO CHALLENGE RUSSIAN FORCES IN NORTHERN SYRIA

South Front

US Sends M2A2 Bradley IFVs To Challenge Russian Forces In Northern Syria
Videos

The US military has reinforced its troops, supposedly mostly withdrawn from Syria, with a new batch of military equipment, this time M2A2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles.

In an official comment released on September 18, the US-led coalition said that mechanized infantry assets, including Bradley IFVs, were positioned to Syria in order to “ensure the enduring defeat of ISIS”, “ensure the protection of Coalition forces” and “provide the rapid flexibility needed to protect critical petroleum resources”.

The M2A2 Bradley is armed with a 25 mm chain gun, a 7.62 mm coaxial machine gun and a dual TOW anti-tank guided missile launcher. This makes the IFV the heaviest weapon deployed by the US on the ground in Syria.

As of September 21, the newly deployed armoured vehicles were already spotted during a coalition patrol in al-Hasakah province, where the US has a network of fortified positions and military bases. US forces regularly conduct patrols in the area. Another area of US interest in Syria’s northeast are the Omar oil fields on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. Washington reinforced its troops deployed there with M2A2 Bradley IFVs in October 2019.

The main difference is that, according to local sources, the vehicles deployed in al-Hasakah province will most likely be involved in patrols in the area and thus regular confrontations with the Russian Military Police and the Syrian Army.

Just a few days ago, Russian attack helicopters chased US Apaches after they had tried to harass a Russian Military Police patrol. Earlier, the US military claimed that US troops sustained “mild injures”, when a Russian vehicle rammed a US MRAP in the al-Hasakah countryside.

The US-led coalition regularly tries to limit the freedom of movement of Russian and Syrian forces in the northeast of the country and faces an asymmetric response. Now, US forces will have an additional argument in securing what they see as their sphere of influence.

Syrian government forces have suffered even more casualties from ISIS attacks in the provinces of Homs and Deir Ezzor. On September 19, at least five members of Liwa al-Quds, a pro-government Palestinian militia, died in an explosion of an improvised explosive device near the town of al-Shumaytiyah. On September 20, an explosion hit a vehicle of the Syrian Army near al-Mayadin reportedly injuring several soldiers. Also, a field commander of the National Defense Forces was killed in clashes with ISIS terrorists west of Deir Ezzor.

As of September 21, the Syrian Army, Liwa al-Quds and their allies continue a combing operation to clear the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert from ISIS cells. However, the strong ISIS presence is still a notable threat for the security situation in the central Syrian desert.

In Greater Idlib, the Russian Aerospace Forces continue their air campaign targeting training camps, weapon depots, HQs and fortified positions of Turkish-backed terrorist groups. The interesting fact is that with the resumption of active Russian strikes on targets across Idlib, terrorists have decreased the number of attacks on the Syrian Army and civilian targets along the contact line. It would appear that the airstrike diplomacy has all chances to become an integral part of the Idlib ceasefire.

Terrorist Attack against a Gas Pipeline Takes out Electricity in all Syria

Gas pipeline explosion - Syria Damascus countryside - terror

August 24, 2020 Arabi Souri

A terrorist attack targeted a main Gas pipeline that resulted in taking out the electricity in all over Syria, the Syrian Minister of Oil and Rich Minerals said.

The massive explosion which targeted the Arabian Gas Pipeline feeding the Der Ali thermal power station disrupted the gas supplies to the station and subsequently all connected substations were off. The towns in northern Damascus countryside, the explosion rocked the region, especially the towns between Adra and Dumair.

“It’s like daytime light throughout the night”, one local said on social media describing the fire that erupted from the explosion that occurred shortly after 1 am local time, as per local sources.

The targeted gas pipeline, a 36 inch wide and with the capacity of 7 million cubic meters of gas, in addition to supplying gas to the thermal station of Der Ali, also supplies gas to the thermal stations of Tishreen and Nassiyria in the southern region of the country which all went out of service.


Extinguishing the fire took all night long and immediate assessment of damages and restoration operations of the pipeline were initiated, electricity is coming back gradually, though slowly to different provinces.

The US embattled war criminal and irresponsible president Trump needs any useful achievement to win his coming elections in foreign policy after failing miserably at all fronts in domestic policies have increased his ‘Maximum Pressure’ attempts against the countries not under the US hegemony, notably Syria and Iran, thus terrorist attacks and Israeli bombing and sabotage against infrastructure in these countries have increased in the past few months. No low limits defined as Trump’s terrorists as well as Trump’s forces operating as US Army illegally in Syria even burned Syrian wheat fields as it neared harvesting.

Some pictures from the site of the explosion

Targeting gas and oil pipelines in the country reminds us with the terrorist attack against the gas pipeline in Baba Amro, Homs, at the beginning of the US-led War of Terror against Syria, the terrorist act was carried out by a CNN crew who falsely accused the Syrian Army with their own evil act but were caught by their own cameras they forgot streaming online throughout the night.

The whole world is running on the very fragile gas and oil pipeline, just like the mercantile ships in the open seas, using these in the US-led War of Terror and intimidation would engulf the entire world in tit for tat attacks that would have unimaginable ramifications on all of humanity, with an unpredictable axis of evil spearheaded by the likes of the regimes of Donald Trump, Erdogan of Turkey who cut off the water supplies for over a million Syrian human being in Hasakah province northeast of Syria for the 3rd week now, and the Israeli Netanyahu, the world is at danger, and every single human being is facing massive dangers of the policies and acts of these lunatic warlords.

Though the Syrian people managed to win against the world’s largest army of terrorists, and their sponsors of the super powerful and super-rich countries, the battle is not over and the Syrian people will definitely not give the likes of Trump and Erdogan in their terrorist attacks what they failed to take in their direct military interventions and investing in their terrorist groups.

Raqqa – Deir Ezzor – Hasaka, (ST) – A number of “Qasad” militia, supported by the American occupation forces, were killed and wounded when their vehicles were targeted by unknown persons in the countryside of Raqqa, Deir Ezzor and Hasaka.

Local sources reported to SANA that unknown persons targeted, with weapons and machine guns, the headquarters and locations of armed men from the “Qasad militia” near al-Til factories in the al-Jazra neighborhood and the National Hospital in the city of Tabqa and in the village of Abu Qubei`, west of the city of Raqqa, killing four armed militants from “Qasad” militia.

In the northeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, civil sources indicated that a gunman from the “Qasad militia” was shot dead by unknown persons in the village of Al-Ezbet, which witnessed demonstrations calling for the expulsion of this militia from the area as it is daily stealing Syrian oil and property and attacking civilians.

Yesterday, the checkpoints of the “Qasad militia” were attacked by unknown persons in the towns of Al-Hawayj and Jadid Akidat in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, which resulted in the injury of a number of its gunmen.

In the same context, a number of “Qasad militia” militants were killed and wounded when their vehicles was targeted with an explosive device at Jalal village, east of Al-Shaddadi city in the southern countryside of Hasaka, according to local sources in the region.

Most of the areas of the countryside of Deir Ezzor, Hasaka, and Raqqa, which are under the control of the “Qasad” militia, are witnessing a state of anger and popular rejection of that militia, which is depicted through widespread popular protests calling for its expulsion from their villages and towns as a result of the practices it carried out against the civilian population and the theft of oil and the region’s goods under the cover and support of the American occupation forces. The shooting at demonstrations by that militia caused the death of a number of civilians and the injury of others.

The Turkish-occupied town of Ras al-Ain and its countryside in northern al-Hasakah had been witnessing a series of protests, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on August 22.

Tribal leaders and prominent figures are reportedly participating in the protests against Turkish-backed militants, who have been wreaking havoc in the town since occupying in October of last year.

The locals are supporting Ras al-Ain’s local council, which suspended its work to protest against the new management of the town’s border cursing with Turkey.

Turkish authorities appointed Ahmad Bulat, brother of Saif Abu Baker leader of the Hamza Division, as the manager of the border crossing a few day ago. The appointment was seen as an insult to the locals, since Bulat is just a militant from northern Aleppo.

Heavy clashes broke out in Ras al-Ain on August 20 between local fighters supporting the local council and tribesmen allied to the Hamza Division.

Turkey is trying to state its dominance over Ras al-Ain by installing loyal militants in key posts, while ignoring the town’s locals.

The situation will likely escalate further if Turkey refuse to fulfill the demands of Ras al-Ain’s local council which wants a local civilian to be appointed as the manager of the border crossing. The protesters are also demanding the removal of the Hamza Division from their town.

Al-Jaafari Calls on Guterres to Intervene and Stop Turkish Crimes Depriving Hasaka of Drinking Water

Syria’s Permanent Representative at the UN, Ambassador Bashar al-Jaafari, called on the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to intervene immediately and to exert all his efforts to stop the Turkish regime’s crime of cutting off drinking water for nearly one million Syrian citizens in Hasaka and its suburbs.

Al-Jaafari’s request came during a phone call with the UN Secretary- General on Friday to inform him about the catastrophic conditions in Hasaka city and its suburbs due to drinking water being cut off, stressing that the Turkish aggressive practice constitutes a war crime and a crime against the humanity.

Al-Jaafari pointed out to the Turkish occupation forces’ use of water as a weapon against civilians by depriving more than a million civilians in Hasaka city and its suburbs of potable water, as the Turkish occupation deliberately and repeatedly cut off water from Allouk station and the wells that feed them more than 15 times for several days, using this tactic to punish the people of Hasaka for their support of the Syrian government and their rejection of Turkish occupation.

He said that the situation caused by this crime is unbearable, particularly due to the hot weather and the threat of the Coronavirus pandemic, reminding Guterres of the official letters directed to him and to the Security Council in this regard, including the complaint dated 31/05/2020, as well as Syria’s statements at the Security Council on this matter, the most recent being made on August 19th, with al-Jaafari saying that Syria is hoping that the General Secretariat will react to these letters urgently.

For his part, Guterres said that he is aware of the situation in Hasaka and that he has tasked the UN team in Syria and his Special Envoy Geir Pedersen with taking the necessary steps to address this matter, resolve it urgently, and deliver humanitarian aid to affected people until Allouk station is operational again.

He said that he could imagine the situation in light of the intense heat and absence of potable water, adding that this situation must be resolved urgently, and that he will exert his best efforts by contacting the Turkish government and other sides to put pressure and resolve this matter as soon as possible.

Guterres also said he will task Pedersen with addressing this matter by meeting the representatives of the US, Russia, and Turkey in Geneva on Monday on the sideline of the meetings of the committee for discussing the constitution.

Illegal Trump Military Base in Syria Comes under Attack

On this occasion, the bombing was on a Trump regime criminal base in the town of Ash Shaddadi. A previous one left two American illegals missing. Details are also missing because these areas of Syria — which is not part of the US, nor a NATO member state, nor a NATO lapdog — are under foreign military occupation…and also, perhaps, because Trump does not want to tell Americans that their illegals in Syria are being killed or wounded while engaged in criminal activities.

It is unlikely that those attacking the imperial US bases are members of any faction of al Qaeda, including but not limited to ISIS; were bonafide ISIS terrorists engaged in military attacks on illegal, occupying forces, it is likely that Trump would take a page from Obama’s book of war crimes. Let us never forget that ”44″ was thwarted in his plans to do to Syria what he did to Libya, when the Syrian Arab Republic joined the OPCW in September 2013.

Obama was forced to wait another year before launching his war criminal “coalition” of 66 countries which bombed Syria from the sky, using the excuse of ISIS murdering western illegals as the cover story. Please keep in mind that none of those killed had any visible means of support, which gives some plausibility to various claims all were engaged in special operations to destroy Syria, from the ground.

Other recent attacks on American criminals in Syria, arrogant enough to set up military bases, have been scattered through other areas of al Hasakah and also Deir Ezzor, where the Trump regime is focused on stealing the oil that belongs to the indigenous people of Syria. Contrary to the NATO peak colonialists, Syria oil does not belong to America, nor to the Saudis, nor to the Israelis.

Syria News reminds western fraud liberal colonialists that Syrian oil also does not belong to the non-indigenous, murderous, treasonous, separatist Kurdish militia, to whom Obama gave the Orwellian name, SDF — even while much of its leadership consisted of foreign, NATO wetworkers — whose members Trump now uses as cannon fodder in the attempted ethnic cleansing of the Syrian people and their homeland.

The author humbly suggests that Americans take a moment from their partisan infighting to reflect on not only Trump’s double standards regarding illegals, but on the silence of the Trump haters, regarding the spate of attacks on those highly revered military troops, those illegals in the S.A.R.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 P.M.) – On Tuesday, the U.S. Coalition forces in Syria announced the death of a member of the joint task force from “Operation Inherent Resolve” in the northern countryside of the Al-Hasakah Governorate.

The statement first confirmed that the U.S. soldier’s death was not due to any enemy contact.

“A service member with Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve died in Syria, 21 July. Initial reports indicate the incident was not due to enemy contact. The incident is under investigation.”

However, later in the day, RT Arabic cited the Operation Inherent Resolve’s media wing as saying that the soldier’s death was due to an armored vehicle overturning during a military patrol in northern Al-Hasakah.

“The incident occurred when an armored vehicle overturned while it was conducting a military patrol in the northern countryside of Al-Hasakah.”

They would add: “The death occurred in a non-combat accident,” pointing out that they are currently conducting an investigation into the matter.

New Explosion at Kurds SDF Weapons Depot in Hasakah, Northeast Syria

A strong explosion shook the city of Hasakah northeast of Syria at around 8 pm local time yesterday and smoke columns were seen rising high from the western side of the city near warehouses of the separatist Kurdish SDF militia.

Local sources stated that the explosion was at a weapons depot of the US-sponsored Kurdish separatist SDF militia, known to work closely with Israel. The local sources added that the explosion took place not far from the Musheirfa residential district at the outskirts of Al Hasakah city.

More consecutive explosions at the weapons depots occurred at the site throughout the late evening yesterday causing a state of panic among the residents of the area. The Kurdish militia members rushed to the site unable to contain the explosions and the fire were more panicked than the residents pushing them to evacuate their houses in the region.

Trump forces intervened from the air with low-altitude flights all over the city as the SDF militia were setting their no access perimeters around the site.


On the 21st of June, last month, an explosion took place in the Kurdish SDF weapons depots in the city of Rmelan east of Qamishli near the borders with Turkey in the province of Hasakah. These explosions come at times of high tensions between Trump forces and their Kurdish militia on one side and the residents, the Syrian Army, and the Russian military police on the other side throughout the areas where Trump ordered his forces to withdraw from the country but to keep presence enough to loot the oil and burn the Syrian wheat fields.

The US occupation-backed Qasad groups kidnapped again a number of the people of Al-Shaddadi city in Hasaka countryside

Hasaka,(ST)- The US occupation-backed Qasad groups kidnapped a number of young men in the city of Shaddadi in the southern countryside of Hasaka, to plunge them into the ranks of those groups under the name of “the duty of self-defense.”

Civil sources told a SANA reporter that Qasad groups stormed the city of Shaddadi and erected barriers at the city’s entrances and between its neighborhoods in synchronization with the armed forces storming a number of citizens’ homes and arresting a number of young men to force them to perform what these groups call “the duty of self-defense” within its ranks.

The sources indicated that the kidnappings take place from time to time with the aim of placing youths in training camps for certain periods and then forcing them to join in the ranks of the Qasad groups to implement anti-Syrian agendas and to protect the illegal bases of the American occupation forces and secure convoys of stealing oil and wheat from the Syrian island and smuggling them out of the country.

Al-Shadadi and a number of villages and towns in Hasaka witnessed during the previous period national gatherings and demonstrations denouncing the practices of repressive Qasad groups against them, demanding their exit from the region and the release of those kidnapped from its prisons.

The Trump regime continues to lead the attempt to impose a NATO Sykes-Picot on the Syrian Arab Republic. As part of its efforts to carve up the Levantine country, Trump has accelerated Obama‘s unindicted war crimes. Trump illegals — American troops — continue to illegally bring in weapons — a criminal enterprise began in August 2019 — and logistical equipment for criminal bases and stealing Syrian oil. Trump regime forces fire-bombed wheat fields in May; Trump signed the updated unconstitutional, 3,488 page NDAA bill which included the criminal, fake Caesar legislation the vermin on Capitol Warmonger Hill had been unable to get passed, since 2016.

On the 4th of July — while many Americans were deprived of celebrating their Declaration of Independence from British tyranny because of COVID-19 restrictions, and while small businesses are being crushed by them — US tax dollars were busy at work kidnapping Syrians from their homes in Tal Hamis.

From SANA:

Hasaka, SANA – Qasad (SDF) groups, which are backed by US occupation forces, kidnapped a number of locals in Tal Hamis district in Hasaka countryside, amid a state of wide-scale rejection by locals of these groups and their oppressive practices.

Civil sources told SANA reporter that members of Qasad stormed people’s houses in Tal Hamis township on the background of protests against Qasad that had taken place there recently, and kidnaped a number of locals.

During the past few days, Tal Hamis district witnessed protests against Qasad practices, calling for the groups to leave the area.

Syria News reminds our readers that the criminal SDF was launched as a foreign mercenary militia under the Obama regime, after US General Raymond Thomas convinced the cannon fodder armed separatist YPG to change its name for new marketing, as the YPG just happened to be on the US terror list.

During these times of domestic unrest in the US of A, we especially remind our American readers of the horrors their tax dollars have funded against Syrians, specifically by the SDF:

Let US also remember that while the fascist coalition created by Obama and continued by Trump obliterated al Raqqa, Syria, from the sky, the peon SDF demolished the remnants from the ground.

CNN cheers destruction as far as the eye can see. This is al Raqqa, courtesy of the US-led war criminal coalition.

As Americans demonstrate the success of Operation Mockingbird, bickering over the domestic mobs acts of arson and other destruction, with some laying the blame only at Trump’s feet, may the more reasonable minds recognize that our country has bipartisanly normalized violent chaos around the non-western world, throughout our lifetime.
