Erdogan’s Terrorists infighting Kills Several of them in Northern Aleppo

Aleppo Ahrar Sham Muhajireen terrorist commander Mahmoud Banyan Musaab Shehadah killed

ARABI SOURI

Erdogan’s terrorists in the so-called ‘Ahrar Al-Sham Movement’ had a busy day celebrating the new year by shooting from their machine guns funded by western taxpayers, except they were not shooting in the air, as the custom in this region, they were shooting each other.

Reports from the town of Jindires in the northern Aleppo countryside confirmed the clashes and stated that dozens were killed and injured, a state of tension and unrest ensued. It all started when a terrorist commander and his escorts went through a checkpoint of their same group in the Tal Sallour village near Jindires ignoring the guards who opened fire at them and clashes erupted which has spread fast.

The local sources reporting the incident confirmed the killing of the so-called Mahmoud Banyan (محمود بنيان), the commander of the so-called ‘Muhajireen Brigade’ (لواء المهاجرين) of the Ahrar Al-Sham movement (حركة أحرار الشام), and his colleague Musaab Shehadah (مصعب شحادة), while 4 others were injured in the initial fire exchange. The Turkish army and its embedded terrorists have imposed a blackout on the information, there’s no news yet on the fate of the members of the checkpoint or other terrorists who were in the same area and among those occupying Jinderis.

This dead terrorist Mahmoud banyan is one of the ‘celebrated’ terrorists among the armies of terrorists the Turkish madman Erdogan personally praised and sponsored, the Syrian army has already injured him in previous clashes leaving him without one eye and without one of his legs, Erdogan stitched him up like a Frankenstein as long as he can use him to ‘raise the morale’ among the losing terrorists.

Erdogan, the Turkish madman caliph wannabe is not having his best days, on one hand, the satellite regimes he sprung in the NATO Spring dubbed ‘Arab Spring’ is collapsing and the anti-Islamic Muslim Brotherhood radicals have lost power in a number of countries they overtook during the past decade, he already lost Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, and to a large extent southern Yemen, losing Libya, and he never won Syria and will never do, especially with the assorted suicidal terrorists he recruited from Syria and the majority of others he managed to bring into Syria from around the world keep fighting over bounties and spoils of war, and whenever facing the Syrian Arab Army their gatherings collapse and lose, the only thing keeping them in considerable areas in northern Syria is the Russian guarantee of the madman’s promises he will withdraw them from Syria but still cannot figure out where to, he’s overwhelmed with those coming from the regions he lost.

Syrian and Russian Air forces Destroy 12 Quarters of the Uighur Terrorists

Syrian and Russian air force bombing of Uighur Turkestan Islamist Party terrorists in Idlib

ARABI SOURI 

The Syrian and Russian air forces continued the war on terror, the real war on terror against the NATO-sponsored terrorists, not freedom fighters, in the northwestern province of Idlib, destroying 12 quarters of the terrorists in their last targeting campaign.

Terrorists from the Chinese Uighur, so-called Turkestan Islamist Party, operating from the village of Kansafra in the southern Idlib countryside and the town of Al Jidaydeh (Jdayde) in the western countryside, and terrorists in the outskirts of Idlib received the new year’s bombing today, this follows yesterday’s bombing of a terrorists’ quarter in the outskirts of the village of Kafr Dariyan in the northern Idlib countryside yesterday.

Syrian intelligence spotted the movement of the terrorists on new year’s eve with attempts to transfer terrorists, weapons, and munition toward the Syrian army posts, the command was notified and the coordinates of the terrorists’ gatherings provided were targeted and included in addition to the afore-mentioned, a gathering in the outskirts of the Jisr Shoghour city, a main hub for the terrorists, 3 of their posts were destroyed. The Uzbek so-called Bukhara Battalion in the Kansafra, Sufuhin, and Benin in Al Zawya Mountain were targeted while the terrorists were preparing an attack against the Syrian army’s posts on these axes.

A bombing eliminated 35 terrorists of foreign nationalities, killed and wounded beyond repair, and 12 of their quarters in the western outskirts of the city of Aleppo, mainly targeting the so-called Hurras Al-Din terrorist group.

The above details are collected from multiple sources including officers of the SAA, Sputnik News, activists from within Idlib, the sources of the terrorists themselves when calling for help from their commanders inside Turkey, and other sources we cannot provide.

Idlib province is described by NATO commanders and the US officials as the ‘last stronghold of Al Qaeda’ in Syria, yet, the Turkish army has no issues deploying their troops alongside those Al Qaeda terrorists even though Turkey is the 2nd main member of NATO itself.

The Turkish regime of the madman Erdogan and the terrorist sources have not stated the total number of their casualties from all the bombings among their members in these latest targetings, propaganda outlets supporting the terrorists claimed that only civilians were killed and injured including children, and the bombing only targeted hospitals, as usual, and the new trend is that it targeted shelters of displaced civilians.

Most of the Western followers of the news would believe such claims, each time, unfortunately, despite that they’ve been told that over 2000 hospitals were destroyed completely, and about 3000 other hospitals and medical centers in Idlib were destroyed partially by the Syrian and Russian bombing.

Some useful facts for our western readers: As a comparison, the total number of hospitals in the entire United States of America is 6090 hospitals as of 2021, and the entire area of Syria is 185,400 square kilometers (71,583 square miles), all of Syria is about the size of North Dakota, the area of Idlib including the liberated regions is 6097 sq. kilometers (2354 square miles), that much lies the western mainstream media is capable of and that much the western citizens are accepting to believe. The total population of Syria was around 23 million in 2011, if we to believe the western figures, 6 million are refugees in other countries, 2 million living under the occupation of Al Qaeda and their Turkish army protectors, 1 million in areas where the Kurdish SDF terrorists and their US army protectors, leaving around 16 million living in areas controlled by the Syrian government (including newborns, displaced Palestinians, Iraqis, and Lebanese).

No Terrorists in Idlib Only Hospitals – Syria – News – White Helmets – Nusra Front – ISIS – Al Qaeda – لا يوجد شيء في ادلب إلا المستشفيات

Our western readers can use the above information when they’re bombarded with the mainstream propaganda from the same outlets that sold the Iraqi WMDs lie, the Libyan invasion justification lie, the war on terror lie, the cover-up of the lost 2.3 trillion US dollars (2300 billion US dollars or 2300 thousand x million US dollars), and the same mainstream media that spent 4 years attacking their president based on allegations of collusion with Russia then were never held accountable!

The escalation in the bombing of the terrorists in Idlib comes after recent systematic attacks by the Turkey-backed Al Qaeda terrorists against the liberated villages in the southern Idlib countryside and the northern Hama countryside, and to remind the Turkish madman Erdogan that the Idlib agreements he failed to implement are going to be implemented by force. All the agreements in which Turkey signed and all the statements issued by Turkey, especially at the United Nations, oblige it to combat terrorism and to respect Syria’s sovereignty, which it continues to do the opposite.

هل سترد سورية أم تصعد روسيا بوجه «إسرائيل»؟

الخميس 30 كانون أول 2021

 ناصر قنديل

ينشط خصوم سورية واللاعبون على حبال الخلاف بينها وبين حلفائها وخصوصاً روسيا وإيران لبث الشكوك، وتقدم الغارات “الإسرائيلية” على سورية، ساحة نموذجية لتحقيق هذا الهدف، فالغارات تتواصل ولا تكاد تتوقف عن معدل غارة في الأسبوع، وسورية تكتفي بصد الصواريخ بصواريخ مضادة، وتحقق غالباً نتائج جيدة، لكن الأثر المعنوي للغارات يبقى جارحاً على مستوى الرأي العام السوري خصوصاً، والعربي عموماً، وتظهر المطالبة بالرد وقد تجاوزت مع الغارة الأخيرة على مرفأ اللاذقية كل المرات السابقة، ومثلها الانتقادات التي تطال الموقف الروسي، وتحمله مسؤولية التمادي “الإسرائيلي”، ويصل البعض إلى حد اتهام روسيا بالتواطؤ والشراكة، وليس فقط اغماض العين عن هذه الاعتداءات.

في مثل هذه القضايا تلعب الحرب على المعنويات دوراً هاماً، ولا يكفي فقط قراءة أبعاد العمل العسكري ميدانياً واستراتيجياً ووضعه في سياق الإطار العام للقيادة العسكرية المعنية في أولويات المواجهات وتخصيص الموارد لها، ويكفي النظر إلى أهداف الغارات “الإسرائيلية” نفسها لمعرفة أنها غالباً بمفعول ضئيل من الوجهتين الاستراتيجية، أي تغيير موازين القوى ووجهة الأحداث، والتكتيكية أي الحاق الأذى الجسيم بالبنى والهياكل العسكرية والمدنية، لكن الغارات تستمر للبعد المعنوي سواء في تأكيد التفوق “الإسرائيلي” تجاه الرأي العام المشكك بقدرة قيادته على خوض حروب جديدة، وتتخذ القيادة “الإسرائيلية” من عدم الرد علامة على موازين القوى التي تحكم علاقتها، ليس في سورية فحسب، بل بمحور المقاومة المستهدف عبر هذه الغارات، تحت عنوان منع تدفق الأسلحة الإيرانية لقوى المقاومة، ومنع تموضع القوات الإيرانية وقوى المقاومة في المناطق القريبة من حدود الجولان السوري المحتل، ولو كان هذا الشعار إعلامياً فحسب، هذا إضافة إلى زرع الشكوك بما تقوله قيادة المحور عن تفوقها الاستراتيجي على كيان الاحتلال، وتصريحات قادة المقاومة عن القدرة على محو “إسرائيل” من الوجود، وصولاً إلى زرع الشكوك بين قوى المحور وروسيا، أو على الأقل زعزعة ثقة جمهور المحور وفي قلبه سورية تجاه مضمون التحالف مع روسيا.

في العقل البارد لقيادة محور المقاومة وعلى رأسه إيران وفي قلبه سورية، والقيادة الروسية، ثقة متينة بالتحالف الذي نجح بتحقيق انتصارات أحبطت المشروع الأميركي الذي كانت “إسرائيل” في قلبه، وكان يرمي لاسقاط سورية وتفتيتها وتحويلها إلى إمارات ومشيخات ودويلات ومناطق نفوذ، وثقة بحجم التضحيات التي بذلها أطراف هذا التحالف وبالنتائج التي ترتبت عليه لكل منهم، وتسليم بخصوصية إدارة العلاقة بالغارات الإسرائيلية، بين كل من أطرافه، حيث روسيا ملتزمة بإعادة بناء الدفاعات الجوية لسورية وقد فعلت الكثير في هذا السياق، وهو ما تظهره عمليات التصدي للصواريخ بالصواريخ واسقاط الكثير الكثير منها، وهو ما تكفل بإسقاط أول طائرة “إسرائيلية” في الأجواء السورية قبل أربعة أعوام، وهو ما يمنع “إسرائيل” من دخول الأجواء السورية مجدداً منذ ذلك التاريخ، لكن روسيا التي رسمت دورها في سورية دولياً تحت سقف دعم الدولة الشرعية في مواجهة الجماعات الارهابية، ليست مستعدة لتوسيع نطاق التزامها ليطال التحول إلى طرف في صراع تاريخي قائم ومستمر بين سورية و”إسرائيل”.

بالنسبة إلى محور المقاومة بلا استثناء وفي طليعته إيران وفي قلبه حزب الله، يبقى سقف الموقف هو ما ترسمه القيادة السورية، واحترام جدول أولوياتها، وفي سورية تبقى الأولوية لمواصلة تحرير الأرض السورية الواقعة خارج نطاق سيطرة الدولة، بفعل سيطرة الاحتلالين الأميركي والتركي والجماعات التقسيمية أو الارهابية العاملة في ظلالهما، وطالما أن الغارات “الإسرائيلية” ذات طابع إعلامي، فالدولة السورية ماضية في أولوياتها، خصوصاً أن ذلك يريح العلاقة بينها وبين موسكو التي تشاركها هذا الالتزام ضمن إطار المهمة الأصلية التي جاءت القوات الروسية على أساسها إلى سورية، وطالما كان ذلك ممكناً ترغب الدولة السورية بعدم الاستجابة لمحاولات استدراجها إلى طرق جانبية تربط هذه الخطة.

الغارة الأخيرة على اللاذقية تختلف عن سابقاتها، فهي تأتي في ذروة الأزمة الأوكرانية التي تعيشها روسيا في محاولة لتغيير قواعد الاشتباك، والقول لموسكو إن مدى الحركة “الإسرائيلية” لن يراعي الخطوط الحمر الروسية، وإلا فإن “إسرائيل” تملك قدرة التأثير في مسار المواجهة في أوكرانيا عبر جاليات يهودية فاعلة في روسيا وأوكرانيا، وتستهدف “إسرائيل” من هذا التوسيع لنطاق الحركة، التأثير على مسار التفاوض الدائر في فيينا حول الملف النووي الإيراني، عبر السعي لفرض تصعيد عسكري في المنطقة يعقّد مسار التفاوض ويضغط على الموقف الأميركي، ويضعه في زاوية صعبة، ولذلك كان ذا مغزى ما تضمنه البيان الروسي من اتهام “إسرائيل” بالاحتماء بطائرات روسية كان تحلق في أجواء اللاذقية، وتم اختيار التوقيت “الإسرائيلي” بعناية ليتزامن مع هذا التحليق، وما يرافقه من تعليق عمل الدفاعات الجوية السورية تفادياً لوقوع كارثة شبيهة بالتي حدثت قبل سنوات، وأسفرت عن اسقاط طائرة روسية بصاروخ سوري.

الأكيد الآن هو أن  التعامل مع هذه الغارة ليس كما قبلها، وأن الكل ينتظر روسيا لمعرفة طبيعة الاجراءات التي ستتخذها في ضوء البيان الصادر عن وزارة الدفاع الروسية، خصوصاً أن المرة الماضية شهدت موقفاً روسياً قاسياً أوقفت خلاله موسكو العلاقات السياسية مع حكومة الاحتلال، وزودت الجيش السوري بشبكات دفاع جوية حديثة، وأقفلت الأجواء السورية بوجه الطائرات “الإسرائيلية” في  كل مناطق الانتشار الروسي، ومنها اللاذقية ودمشق وحمص، لكن الأكيد أن الموقف الروسي يبقى روسيا، وأن رداً سورياً منتظراً لن يكون بعيداً، ومن خلفه كل محور المقاومة، وأن معادلة الصواريخ مقابل الغارات ستكون على الطاولة لترسم قواعد اشتباك جديدة، خصوصاً أن واشنطن التي أيدت في عهد الرئيس ونالد ترامب ضم الجولان، لم تنسحب بعد رسمياً من هذا التأييد في زمن إدارة الرئيس جو بايدن، والقرارات الاستيطانية الأخيرة لم يجف حبرها بعد.

إن غداً لناظره قريب.

Syria: Why the US massacre at Al-Baghouz?

Net 28 Dec 2021

Source: Al Mayadeen

Tim Anderson

Under media pressure, the US military admitted to its March 2019 massacre of dozens of civilians in the Syrian border town of al Baghouz.

Syria: Why the US massacre at Al-Baghouz?

Under media pressure, the US military admitted to its March 2019 massacre of dozens of civilians in the Syrian border town of Al-Baghouz. But that same media also promoted the Pentagon’s false cover story: That this happened as a result of the US military ‘fighting ISIS’. 

The fog of war is used to muddy all evils.

The New York Times prided itself on uncovering the fact of the massacre of dozens of Syrian civilians and exposing the coverup. However, it then simply adopted the Pentagon’s claim that this bombing occurred “in the last days of the battle against the Islamic State in Syria when members of the once-fierce caliphate were cornered in a dirt field next to a town called Baghouz”. This context was pure fiction. 

Syrian sources show that the US Air Force was attempting to bomb Syrian Arab Army (SAA) placements on the outskirts of Al-Baghouz, in an attempt to remove the SAA presence from that part of the border and so hand full control of the zone to its Kurdish-led SDF proxy, deployed all across eastern Syria since 2018.

Syrian General ‘A’, with experience in the Deir Ezzor region, told this writer that there were no ISIS terrorists in Al-Baghouz in March 2019. It was then and still is a town dominated by the US-backed SDF, but with SAA posts on the outskirts of the town. This hybrid remains the pattern across much of eastern Syria.

The Syrian, Iranian, and Iraqi alliance has controlled the Al-Bukamal-Baghouz border crossing area since late 2017 after they destroyed the major ISIS (DAESH) centers in the Deir Ezzor region. The late Iranian General Qassem Soleimani, the hero of the regional anti-ISIS war, led the October 2017 push, down the Euphrates from Deir Ezzor city through Al Mayadeen to the border area at Al-Bukamal.

While the US military positioned itself all along the Syria-Iraqi border, from Hasakeh in the north to Al-Tanf in the south – so as to divide regional resistance forces – the Al-Bukamal-Baghouz area was and remains the only crossing they failed to control.

As a result, there have been many US and Israeli missile and drone attacks on that strategic border area, both before and after the Al-Baghouz massacre, all aimed at Iranian, Iraqi PMU, and Syrian forces. Those attacks were ongoing in November 2021.

General A pointed out that the Al-Baghouz villages have been brutalized by both ISIS and the SDF, and that drives them to seek refuge with the SAA.

Properly understood, ISIS is a sectarian proxy created by the Saudis in Iraq and Syria, under US directions, to use sectarian violence to divide and weaken both states. There have been multiple admissions by US officials (including Joe Biden, when he was Vice President) that their major allies funded and armed ISIS, and all the other ‘jihadist’ gangs in Syria.

Despite the admissions, Washington has tried to maintain the myth of its own ‘arms-length’ from this notorious terrorism. The war media follows suit.

The March 2019 massacre of civilians at al Baghouz, in an attempt to deliver that area more fully to the SDF, is reminiscent of the September 2016 US-led bombing attack on Syrian soldiers posted on Thardeh mountain behind Deir Ezzor Airport, which did in fact help ISIS take over that strategic position.

There, a carefully planned bombing raid by the US and Australian air forces, which lasted for an hour and killed over 120 soldiers, was simply labeled a ‘mistake’. The western media did not question this absurd explanation. They did not even ask how such a ‘mistake’, which enabled an ISIS takeover of the mountain, was not corrected.

Western sources now pretend that the massacre at Al-Baghouz actually killed ISIS terrorists and that this massacre of Syrian civilians marked a ‘humanitarian disaster’ in sort of endpoint for the US-led ‘battle against ISIS’ in Syria. 

Thurda Mount

In fact, as many Syrian Army sources (routinely ignored by the western war media) have long pointed out, ISIS remains a tool of the US and, after 2017, is still used in small attacks, helped by the SDF, to harass Syrian forces in the eastern desert. 

The SDF holds many former ISIS fighters in its prisons and releases groups from time to time, for just such missions.

Why would the NYT simply adopt the Pentagon’s ‘good intentions’ defense over Al-Baghouz massacre, having uncovered the shocking crime and its coverup?

Simply put, the western war media imposes clear limits to ‘respectable’ criticism of NATO’s bloodthirsty wars of aggression. 

The opinions mentioned in this article do not necessarily reflect the opinion of Al mayadeen, but rather express the opinion of its writer exclusively.

الغارات على مرفأ اللاذقية وماذا بعد؟

إسرائيل تقصف ميناء اللاذقية للمرة الثانية في ديسمبر 2021

لا تأتي خطورة الغارات الإسرائيلية التي استهدفت مرفأ اللاذقية من كونها- كما يزعم الإسرائيليون- استهدفت حاويات تحمل معدات عسكرية، فتلك لا يتم تركها في أرض المرفأ، فكيف في ساحة الحاويات، إلا أن الخطورة تأتي من أن الاستهداف المتكرر للمرفأ عبر غارات جوية من جهة البحر، يفتح الباب لتساؤلات حول العلاقة السورية- الروسية، ما تتهم به موسكو أمام الرأي العام، السوري خصوصاً والعربي عموماً بأنها راضية عن هذه الغارات، أو لا تمانع بها، بدليل أن استهداف يتم في حضن موسكو العسكري، حيث بطاريات صواريخ الأس أس 400 التي تربض في حميميم، التي قيل إنها تستطيع كشف الطائرات الإسرائيلية، وهي على مدرجات الإقلاع من الأراضي الفلسطينية المحتلة.

حسناً فعلت القيادة العسكرية الروسية في حميميم باصدار بيان يشرح كيفية حدوث الغارات، وإشارته إلى أن الدفاعات الجوية السورية التي تتعامل عادة مع هذه الغارات لم يتم تفعيلها من قبل الجيش السوري لتزامن الغارات مع عبور  طائرة نقل جوي عسكري روسية في ذات الأجواء بذات التوقيت، تفادياً لتكرار الحادثة التي تسببت بسقوط طائرة روسية مشابهة في أيلول عام 2018، ومن البديهي أيضاً ألا تكون شبكات الصواريخ الروسية مفعلة للاعتبار ذاته، والبيان الروسية يأتي تأكيداً لاتهام سابق سوري- روسي للإسرائيليين بالاحتماء بالطائرات المدنية أثناء تنفيذ الغارات الجوية على سورية، وهذا يعني أن “إسرائيل” تتحدى سورية وروسيا معاً، ولا تترك مجالاً لردعها مع تعطيل فرص اسقاط الصواريخ، إلا بجعلها تدفع ثمن الغارات بما يردعها عن التفكير بتكرارها.

لا سورية تستطيع تحمل أن يمر الأمر من دون رد، ولا روسيا تستطيع المطالبة بضبط النفس، وتحمل التمادي الإسرائيلي من دون خطوة رادعة، وقد آن الأوان لضربة موجعة تقول إنه من الآن وصاعداً، العين بالعين والسن بالسن، والمرفأ بالمرفأ، والمطار بالمطار، وما لا تطاله الطائرات تطاله الصواريخ.

More Weapons, Munition, and a Drone for NATO Terrorists Seized in Daraa

ARABI SOURI 

NATO Terrorsits Weapons munition communication devices drone seized in Daraa

More weapons were seized in the province of Daraa, in the southern region, some of the weapons were handed over by former terrorists, and the rest were unearthed after a series of raids on houses and farmlands.

It’s been 3 months since the Syrian Arab Army and its allies concluded the liberation of the southern Syrian province of Daraa from NATO-sponsored Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists and their affiliates, however, some few attacks and assassinations occurred since last September that led the Syrian law enforcement agencies in the province to intensify their work searching for dens used by the terrorists within the province to store their weapons and use it as hideouts when coming from the US-illegally-controlled Al Tanf area to carry out their terrorism against the people of Daraa and against their former colleagues who joined the reconciliations.

NATO Terrorsits Weapons munition communication devices drone seized in Daraa

Some of those former terrorists seem to have dropped completely the idea of working as pawns for NATO, Gulfies, and Israel and decided to surrender the weapons they hid after formally signing in the reconciliation which includes an amnesty and restoring their normal lives if they stop being terrorists.

In addition to the weapons handed over by its owners, family members of the terrorists, getting tired of the terrorism inflicted upon them by NATO and co, and after the terrorists targeted some of the notables in the province and have prevented them from planting their own fields and resuming the work in their businesses, have helped the law enforcement in unearthing a number of dens where assorted weapons were discovered, some of which were packed to be smuggled into other Syrian provinces and destroy the lives of more families in those provinces.

In total, a reporter for the Syrian news agency SANA concluded that among the confiscated weapons are PKC machine guns, a large number of automatic rifles, RPGs with their charges, snipers, DShK shots, 14.5 mm machine guns, 122 mm mortars with grenades, grenades, communication devices, a small reconnaissance drone, IEDs, anti-armor mines.

As analysts, and especially as Syrians, we fail to understand the generosity of western taxpayers in pouring their hard-earned cash money to finance these terrorists with all sorts of weapons which are not cheap, and advanced and expensive open satellite communication devices and connections, prioritizing the killing and maiming of Syrian people, destroying their properties and public infrastructure over the wellbeing and welfare of their own children in the western world. From our observation, we don’t see they’re doing that well in general in all the countries that are sponsoring the ‘freedom fighters’ in Syria to set aside tens of billions of dollars, sterling pounds, and Euros for these criminals to commit their crimes.

And yeah, Merry Christmas.

ISIS-affiliated Terrorists Assassinate a Mayor in Daraa Countryside

 

ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorists assassinate mayor in Daraa southern Syria

ARABI SOURI 

Remnants of ISIS and Al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists assassinated the mayor of Al Nuaymah (Elnaymah) town in the eastern countryside of Daraa earlier in the morning today, Thursday, other members of his family were injured in the attack.

Local sources and the reporter of the Syrian news agency Sana confirmed the killing of Alaa Abboud (38 years old) by a bomb planted in his vehicle near the Al-Khirbeh roundabout in the city of Daraa, the center of the province of Daraa.

Family members of the slain mayor were rushed to the National Hospital in Daraa for treatment from injuries they sustained in the heinous attack.

Biden forces illegally deployed in the Al Tanf area in the depth of the Syrian desert at the joint borders with Iraq and Jordan, in addition to holding hundreds of Syrian families in the infamous Rukban concentration camp, continue to sponsor the remnants of ISIS terrorists, especially the so-called Maghawir Thawra, and other Al Qaeda terrorists, the locals who refused to join the reconciliation and foreigners brought into Syria by the CIA through Jordan and Turkey.

The same Biden forces impose a 50 kilometers no-fly zone around their illegal base in which these ISIS terrorists take refuge and launch their terrorist operations against the Syrian people, state officials, and Syrian army soldiers in the southern and central region of the country.

The terrorist group and the US army bragged about carrying out a joint military drill in early December last year!

Today’s assassination of Alaa Al Abboud is the 21st assassination targeting mayors and members of the local city and town councils in the Syrian southern province of Daraa since 2018 when the Russian Reconciliation Center oversaw a reconciliation process that allowed the liberation of most of the province from terrorists without shedding blood in major military operations, however, the rest of the province was liberated by military pressure in September this year.

كيف تحاسَب أميركا على جرائمها بحق المدنيين؟

الثلاثاء 21 12 2021

العميد د. أمين محمد حطيط*

في كلّ مرة كانت أميركا تطلق بها أكذوبة أو تلفق فيها مسرحية تتهم بها جيشاً من جيوش الخصوم والأعداء بأنه خرج في الميدان عن قواعد القانون الدولي الإنساني، أو تتهم فيها مكوناً مسلحاً يقاوم احتلالها المباشر أو غير المباشر تتهمه بأنه فصيل إرهابي، في كلّ مرة تطلق فيها أميركا ذلك نجدها تخفي جريمة ارتكبتها، أو تحضر المسرح لجريمة سترتكبها منتهكة قواعد الحرب وقواعد القانون الدولي. فأميركا خلافاً لجيوش المعمورة تمارس في الميدان القتل للإرهاب وأحياناً القتال للتدمير، بينما وظيفة الجيوش عادة هي القتال دفاعاً أو هجوماً من أجل تحقيق هدف وطني أو قومي ما.

وفي احتلالها لمناطق في الشرق الأوسط بخاصة في كلّ من أفغانستان والعراق وسورية، لم تخرج أميركا عن هذا السلوك النمطي الاجرامي في أدائها الميداني، ففي الوقت الذي كانت تدّعي فيه مثلاً أن الجيش العربي السوري استعمل الأسلحة الكيماوية ضدّ «المواطنين السوريين الأبرياء» وقتل منهم الكثير، كانت طائراتها النفاثة أو المسيّرة ترتكب المجازر غير المبرّرة بحق المدنيين السوريين، على حدّ ما أوردت صحيفة «نيويورك تايمز» الأميركية، التي ذكرت أنّ هناك أكثر من 1300 تقرير سرّبت من البنتاغون تتضمّن إحصاء لحجم الخسائر الهائل في صفوف المدنيين التي أوقعتها الطائرات الأميركية، التي تدّعي أنها تملك أرقى تقنية في العالم لتحديد الأهداف وضبط النار ومنع الخطأ.

والسؤال المركزي الذي يُطرح هنا هل أن الجيش الأميركي يقتل المدنيين عن طريق الخطأ؟ أم أن القتل مسألة تدخل في صلب قواعد العمل العسكري الأميركي في الميدان؟ سؤال يفتح على سؤال آخر فيه القول كيف يمكن منع أميركا من ارتكاب هذه الجرائم؟

من يعرف ما تملكه أميركا من وسائل المراقبة والاستطلاع وتحديد الأهداف، يصل إلى نتيجة يستبعد فيها إمكان حصول الخطأ في قتل المدنيين بهذا الحجم. فأميركا وفقاً للوثائق المسرّبة نفذت خلال 5 سنوات في البلدان الثلاثة التي احتلتها كلياً أو جزئياً أكثر من 50 ضربة جوية ارتكبت فيها مئات المجازر بحق المدنيين، تنوّعت بين استهداف الجماعات والمناطق الآهلة وقوافل السير والمدارس والأعراس والتجمعات والبنى التحتية إلخ… وكلها أهداف يمنع القانون الدولي العام قصفها. وفي المقابل لم يسجل البنتاغون حادثة واحدة لوحق بها مسؤول عسكري بجريمته أو حتى اتخذ بحقه تدبير تأديبي مسلكي.

إنّ إمعان أميركا باستهداف المدنيين دونما اكتراث أو حذر يعود برأينا إلى سببين… الأول عائد إلى أنها تدرج قتل المدنيين في صلب استراتيجية ممارستها للقوة القمعية بحق الشعب في الدولة المحتلة من أجل ترهيبه ودفعه للاستسلام للاحتلال، والسبب الثاني عائد إلى شعور أميركي بالاستعلاء والممارسة فوق القانون وعدم قدرة أحد على محاسبتها أو معاقبتها، فالشعور الأميركي بالقدرة التامة على الإفلات من العقاب والتصرف بأنها فوق القانون، يدفع العسكري الأميركي للعمل باستخفاف حيال أمن الآخرين وسلامتهم، ويحول دون إلزامه باتخاذ تدابير الحيطة والحذر المفروضة في الميدان، فضلاً عن التقيد الصارم بقاعدة «التناسب والضرورة» الحاكمة في العمليات العسكرية.

والمثير للاستهجان أن أميركا التي هذا هو حال ممارستها ضدّ المدنيين، تدّعي أو تنصّب نفسها مدافعاً عنهم في وجه دولهم وجيوش دولهم، وتجيز لنفسها العدوان على تلك الجيوش بذريعة حماية المدنيين، كما فعلت أكثر من مرة في سورية، حيث زعمت أن الدولة استهدفت الشعب بالسلاح الكيماوي وقامت هي بالعدوان علي الجيش العربي السوري انتقاماً للشعب كما زعمت! ومن المفارقات المضحكة المبكية هنا أن أميركا في الوقت الذي ادّعت أن ضحايا السلاح الكيماوي في أحد المواقع كانوا32 مدنياً، تبيّن أن طيرانها كان، قبل 5 أيام فقط، قد أجهز على تجمع اجتماعي عام وقتل 120 شخصاً في سورية.

أمام هذا الواقع المثير للإدانة والاستنكار الشديدين يطرح السؤال الأساس كيف يمكن أن تعاقَب أميركا على جرائمها بحق المدنيين؟

مع تأكيدنا لرفض الاحتلال الأميركي لأيّ دولة أو منطقة واعتباره عدواناً مداناً وغير مشروع، فإنّ قتل المدنيين وفي الشكل الذي يحصل على يد القوات الأميركية يفرض البحث عن وسائل الدفاع المناسبة، خاصة أن أميركا ترى نفسها فوق القانون وبمنأى عن المحاسبة الدولية من أيّ نوع كانت. لذلك ومع عدم الجدوى من اللجوء إلى المؤسسات والقضاء الدولي لمحاسبتها لن يكون مناص من أن يتولى الشعب المعتدى عليه والمستهدف بالجرائم الأميركية، أن يمارس حق الدفاع المشروع عن النفس عبر مقاومة ضدّ قوات الاحتلال لا بدّ منها من أجل وقف الجرائم وإنهاء الاحتلال، وهذا ما أكدت عليه وقائع التاريخ الحديث التي سجلت ضدّ أميركا بدءاً بفيتنام حيث طرد الأميركي مهزوماً، وفي أفغانستان حيث هرب الأميركي مكسوراً أو في العراق حيث ألزمت المقاومة العراقية أميركا بوضع حدّ لوجودها القتالي، وتستمر المقاومة لأنهاء هذا الوجود كلياً.

أما في سورية فإنّ المقاومة الشعبية الوطنية السورية الواعدة التي تشكلت شرقي الفرات، باتت في مستوى يجعل المتابع يتفاءل خيراً بنتائجها، حيث أن تكرار التصدي للجيش الأميركي المحتلّ أثناء تنقلاته ومنعه من إكمال المسير أكثر من مرة أو استهداف مراكز عسكرية أميركية أو لأدوات أميركا من قسد وغيرها، كلها أمور تنبئ بأمر هامّ مفاده أن على أميركا أن تنهي احتلالها لشرقي الفرات السوري قبل أن تدفع الثمن الكبير الذي يجبرها على الرحيل عنه، كما طردت من سواه من مناطق احتلالها.

Zionist Regime Attacks Latakia Port Area in Syria

By Staff, Agencies

‘Israeli’ warplanes targeted areas near the Syrian port city of Latakia on Tuesday morning.

State-run TV reported that the Zionist regime launched an airstrike on the Latakia Port area in Syria, adding that several explosions were heard.

According to a military source, several missiles came from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea targeting a site with containers in the commercial port.

As a result of the airstrike, several containers caught fire.

However, no human casualties have been reported so far.

In late November, an ‘Israeli’ F-16 fired 12 missiles in the Syrian province of Homs. The Syrian military destroyed 10 of them using air defense systems Buk-M2E and Pantsir-S, the Russian military said.

Breaking: Israel Escalates its Aggression on Syria, Bombs Latakia Seaport

Israel bombs containers yard in Latakia seaport – عدوان اسرائيلي على ميناء اللاذقية

Israel escalates its aggression on Syria by bombing the commercial port of Lattakia, the largest in Syria, the Syrian Army’s air defense addressed the incoming missiles, the bombing caused material damage on the site.

A military spokesperson said in a statement carried by the Syrian news agency SANA:

At about 1:23 am today, the Israeli enemy carried out air aggression with several missiles from the direction of the Mediterranean, southwest of Latakia, targeting the container yard in the commercial port of Latakia. The aggression led to the burning of a number of commercial containers in the mentioned place.

The video is also available on VideoPress and BitChute.

The governor of Latakia headed to inspect the site and oversee the firefighting efforts, he confirmed that all fires were extinguished and that the firefighters are cooling the containers.

Locals in the city reported hearing strong explosions, firefighters were seen heading to the commercial port which is not far from residential areas as can be seen from the pictures shared by the residents there:

Targeting the commercial port is a serious escalation in Israel’s aggression, Israel’s very existence is aggression against humanity, the world’s peace and stability, and to humankind. This particular escalation will have serious consequences and a response is inevitable, the timing of it and its severity should worry the European settlers occupying Palestine.

It’s also of no coincidence that Israel is carrying this aggression hours after the Yemeni armed forces showered a number of Saudi cities with missiles in retaliation to the mad escalation in bombings and massacres carried out by the Saudis in the past 5 days after receiving the latest cache of missiles from the Biden’s junta.

Is Israel cementing the bond established between the open fronts in the region: one front led by the USA and includes Israel, Turkey, other NATO member states, the Gulfies, Al Qaeda, HTS, ISIS, and a host of hundreds of NGOs financed by the US taxpayers, against an axis led by Syria and includes Iran, Yemen, the Iraqi PMU, the Lebanese Hezb Allah, and some of the Palestinian liberation factions? Or is Israel still trying to provoke a regional war to drag the US forces deployed in the region into it to prevent their withdrawal scheduled by this year’s end?

The Syrian response to the Israeli repeated aggression is the constant work on reducing Israel’s power by eliminating the terrorist groups and weakening the US presence in Syria and in Iraq, and by strengthening the Resistance factions led by Hezb Allah in Lebanon and the Islamic Jihad in Gaza, simultaneously, working on countering NATO troops of Turkey, the USA, UK, France, Germany, and Belgium in the country. However, the near future will tell whether Syria will retaliate against today’s escalation before the US withdrawal from the region or will wait until Biden removes his oil thieves and cannon fodder troops deployed in Syria to die for Israel.

Video: Stormy Winter Comes to Syria

By South Front

Global Research,

South Front 2 December 2021

The winter came to Syria with a hurricane and a new wave of hostilities. On December 1, a storm hit refugee camps in the north of the country. The hurricane damaged and destroyed a large number of settlements in Idlib and in the north of Aleppo.

The hurricane is not the only reason of a headache for Syrian militants in Greater Idlib, where a military storm is going really strong. Several recent reports talked about a near ground operation by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies to reinforce the ceasefire in the region.

On November 30, three militants were killed when the SAA shelled a position they were manning in the al-Ghab Plains in the western part of the Greater Idlib region. The army reportedly used its Russian-made 2K25 Krasnopol laser-guided 155 mm artillery round.

Video Player

The slain militants were Syrian members of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP). They were fighting in the terrorist group’s Ansar [Supporters] unit which is dedicated for Syrians only.

The SAA shelling was likely a response to the ceasefire violations which led to casualties in Syrian ranks. In the last few days, two soldiers were allegedly killed in the al-Ghab Plains by sniper fire.

Meanwhile, the SAA, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS), continues fighting terrorists in Syria’s central regions, and the last month was busy enough for the allies.

In November, the VKS carried out more than 610 airstrikes on ISIS cells and their hideouts in Syria’s central region, while the Syrian army conducted several combing operations in different parts of the region.

The most recently, a new wave of airstrikes targeted hideouts of ISIS cells located near the strategic Ithriyah-Khanasir highway, which links Hama with Aleppo.

While the SAA and Russian forces are doing their job, members of the US-led international coalition are busy revealing their activities in Syria.

The UK has officially claimed responsibility for the October 25 drone strike on northeastern Syria. The remotely piloted [MQ-9] Reaper, armed with Hellfire missiles, reportedly killed Sabahi Ibrahim al-Muslih, also known as “Abu Hamzah al- Shheell”, a cochairman of ISIS Shura Council.

The US also did not stay aside. However, it had no successful operation to reveal. Thus, Washington launched investigation into the murder of dozens of civilians.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has ordered an investigation into an airstrike in Syria in 2019. According to The New York Times, an American F-15 fighter jet, by order of Task Force 9, dropped a bomb on a crowd of civilians gathering in a field near the settlement of El-Baguz on March 18, 2019. The US military leadership downplayed the strike, which reportedly killed about 80 people.

Despite the growing discontent among the locals, the US-led international coalition continues its reinforcement in northeastern Syria. Over the last few days, dozens of trucks loaded with supplies and military equipment for the US-led coalition entered the country from Iraq.

While civilians are preventing some US convoys from passing through their villages, throwing stones to the vehicles, other US convoys suffer more severe damage. On December 1, a convoy moving logistic supplies to US-led coalition bases came under an IED attack, when it was passing near the town of al-Malikiyah in the northeastern countryside of al-Hasakah. Two trucks reportedly burnt out as a result of the explosion.

Inside Syrian Idlib

30 Nov 2021

Source: Al Mayadeen Net

Tim Anderson

For NATO, dismembering a country [Syria] is a second-best war aim, after the failure of complete ‘regime change’.

Idlib; where NATO-embedded media is exposed

The NATO-embedded media often speaks as though the HTS/Nusra/al-Qaeda held enclave in two-thirds of Idlib Province represents Syria and is a haven of ‘moderate rebels’. They also claim the enclave holds 4 million people, while the Syrian government says 1.3 million.

War propaganda themes have become dutifully reported ‘facts’: this is a ‘Syrian Civil War’ (even as Syria is occupied by NATO’s two largest armies plus Israel, plus thousands of foreign terrorists), the Syrian Government has repeatedly used ‘chemical weapons’ (i.e. WMDs, meriting NATO retaliation) and (for some unexplained reason: pure evil?) bombs its own schools and hospitals.

But there is another Idlib: that part liberated, at great cost, by Syria’s national army.

From August 2019 through to early 2020, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated the south-eastern third of Idlib province, including the towns of Khan Shaykhoun, Maarat al-Numan, and Saraqeb. That opened the M5 highway for all traffic from the south to Aleppo, through Hama and SE Idlib.

The SAA looked for further advances, but the NATO powers demanded an end to Syrian operations, in defense of the al-Qaeda enclave. That real threat of intervention led Russia to engage in further talks with Turkey and to stall further advances. 

Yet this development demonstrated that Syria, with its allies, could have freed the country from all terrorism were it not for repeated interventions from the NATO-led war coalition, which prefers to dismember and maintain occupied enclaves: NW Idlib, the NE ‘autonomous’ zone, the US occupied al Tanf zone and the Israeli occupied Golan.

In November 2021, I visited Syrian Idlib, authorized by the Syrian Army, just as most western journalists are authorized by US troops when they enter its various war zones. In one day, we traveled to Khan Sheykhoun in the south through Maarat al-Numan, the second-largest provincial city, to the strategic crossroads town of Saraqeb.

Khan Sheykhoun is the only Idlib town I saw with a significant civilian population. Mayor Mohammad Iskandar told us that 600 to 700 families have returned, about 10% of the pre-war population. Now far from the frontline, the town is peaceful with some rebuilding and small markets.

Most of those displaced moved to Turkey or north Idlib and some to other parts of Syria. The mayor is in touch with many and says most want to return, but the armed groups (HTS/Nusra) demand large sums of money for them to leave.

We also spoke with Mr. Iyad Sukheta, who runs a small grocery store, a small farm, and used to drive a bus. Like the Mayor, Iyad has also remained in Khan Sheykhoun throughout the conflict. 

He says the ‘musalaheen’ (armed groups) took many prisoners and killed many local people, including his 17-year-old son. They wanted him to use his bus to drive people north, but he refused. 

Asked about the chemical weapons incident of April 2017, Iyad said that the prisoners were not sacrificed (as they had been in East Ghouta in 2013) but rather, after a Syrian airstrike, the armed groups attacked the local people directly with chemicals. Many were killed. 

Back in 2017, the armed groups blamed the SAA, using their own false flag massacre to incite President Trump (who had campaigned against the war) to make his first missile strike on Syria.

Maarat al-Numan is a much bigger town, with an ancient history and sitting on the frontline between Syrian forces and the Turkish-backed Nusra/HTS gangs. Even though the SAA has pushed its effective frontline forward three times in the past two years, there are no civilians here. The frontline, about 4km north, is constantly tested by the armed groups.

I visited Maarat’s museum with its famous Roman and Byzantine mosaics, which have been protected for several years with sandbags. As with many mosques, schools, and hospitals throughout Syria, the HTS/Nusra terrorists had used it as a military headquarters, digging tunnels under the Museum.

Jabal Zeitoun (Olive Mountain) is now at the center of the frontline, as it occupies the high ground from which the SAA’s 9th Division has placed a substantial vanguard of soldiers, tanks, arms, and surveillance equipment. Yet the actual Maarat frontline extends over many kilometers.

Nusra/HTS had built barricades around the town’s hospital and placed a small mosque inside. We saw evidence of supplies (medicines and cars) from Qatar, Germany, Sweden, and France. The typical pattern of the armed groups’ takeover of Syrian hospitals (for example in Aleppo) has been that they first rob all existing supplies.

Despite nominal support at the UN for the ‘territorial integrity’ of Syria, the NATO states had backed a breakaway Idlib enclave called ‘North Syria’. In much the same way, and contrary to international law, they still support an ‘Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria’. Dismembering a country is a second-best war aim, after the failure of complete ‘regime change’.

Further on up the road, the crossroads town of Saraqeb is also at the frontline, with Nusra/HTS making daily small arms attacks on, and occasional shelling of, SAA positions. They hide behind, and sometimes in front of, the many Turkish bases which are all across northern and central Idlib. The aim of these attacks, according to General J, has been to provoke retaliation which might spark direct conflict between Syrian and Turkish forces. 

Captain Y took us to the frontline, looking out on the road to Ariha, and with a Turkish base 1.7 kilometers ahead. They know these distances quite precisely and are ready to liberate their country from foreign occupation and NATO-backed terrorism when the time is right.

Syria could have eliminated terrorism and restored its territorial integrity long ago, were it not for the NATO-led war coalition which prefers to fragment and occupy segments of the country, all along its land borders. In this way, they provide safe haven for internationally-proscribed terrorist groups.

Strategic Insight Into The Russian-Israeli-Syrian Triangle

21 NOVEMBER 2021

Strategic Insight Into The Russian-Israeli-Syrian Triangle

OneWorld is publishing the full text of the interview that Andrew Korybko gave to Giorgio Cafiero on this topic, some excerpts of which the latter included in his recent article for Inside Arabia titled “Israel’s Working Relationship with Russia Inside Syria”.

1. What does Russia believe it can get for itself through cooperation with Israel in relation to Syria?

Russia and Israel agreed to a deconfliction mechanism in September 2015 shortly before the onset of the former’s intervention in Syria. The two sides hoped to mitigate the risk of midair incidents since Moscow bombs forces that it and Damascus regard as terrorists while Israel does the same, albeit the latter strikes Syria’s IRGC and Hezbollah allies that were invited into the country but which Tel Aviv regards as latent national security threats. Neither wants to clash with the other since that could dramatically escalate regional tensions. Moreover, Russia and Israel have excellent relations, particularly proven by the fact that Tel Aviv declined to sanction Moscow in solidarity with its Western allies all these years.

Russia officially condemns Israel’s strikes from time to time but hasn’t ever taken any action to stop them, whether directly or indirectly. The second-mentioned observation gained extra credence in recent years after Syria has thus far failed to use the S-300s that it belatedly received from Russia in late 2018 after the incident near Latakia that President Putin described as a tragic chain of circumstances. Even though Russia also officially acknowledges the legality and anti-terrorist purposes of the IRGC and Hezbollah’s presence in Syria, some argue that the Kremlin might discretely be hoping for Damascus to request their dignified but phased withdrawal (in this context, under the duress of Israeli airstrikes) as part of a compromise solution for ending the war.

2. To what extent is Russian-Israel cooperation vis-à-vis Syria problematic for Moscow’s relationship with Tehran?

Russia and Iran both fight against ISIS/ISIL/Daesh and other terrorist groups in Syria, but the first-mentioned mostly does so through the air and via the sharing of tactical intelligence to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) while the second joins the SAA and their shared Hezbollah allies in on-the-ground battles. Moscow and Tehran therefore have the same interest in supporting Damascus, but they seemingly differ over their post-war vision for the country. The Kremlin believes that a series of mutual compromises is needed by all parties of the conflict while the Islamic Republic’s implied stance is that its Arab ally doesn’t necessarily have to concede anything to those whom it doesn’t regard as its political equals.

Even though Russia isn’t directly involved in Israel’s strikes, Iran and Hezbollah might not be happy that Moscow doesn’t ever tip them off when it’s informed of these attacks ahead of time per the reported protocol connected with their deconfliction mechanism. There might also be some questions about why Syria hasn’t yet used its Russian-supplied S-300s that were belatedly shipped to the country after the September 2018 incident for the reported purpose of deterring what was described at the time as further irresponsible Israeli behavior. Since then, Israel has continued to strike Syria, with Damascus only targeting its incoming missiles and not using the S-300s or other anti-air defense systems to strike the attacking jets themselves like many earlier expected.

3. Does Bashar al-Assad’s government believe that Russia can pressure Israel in ways which suit the interests of Damascus?

It’s unlikely that Syria seriously has those expectations, and in the off chance that it did, they’re unrealistic. The power dynamic actually seems to be the inverse: Israel believes that Russia can pressure Syria when it comes to requesting Iran and Hezbollah’s withdrawal. Moscow doesn’t want to take sides since it has great relations with both, albeit of a different nature and strategic impact with respect to advancing its interests, hence why it’s hitherto sat back and passively let everything unfold between them as it has.

Nevertheless, it’s precisely this passivity in spite of occasional condemnations of Israeli strikes that can be interpreted as tacitly advancing Tel Aviv’s interests since Moscow doesn’t do anything to stop its attacks against the IRGC and Hezbollah, not directly nor indirectly as was earlier explained. This leads some to wonder whether Russia discretely prefers for Israeli strikes to function as a form of pressure for getting Syria to request Iran and Hezbollah’s withdrawal as part of a larger regional compromise that the Kremlin might hope to broker.

4. What are Israel’s incentives to work with Russia? Is there any good reason for Israelis to believe that Russia will act against Iranian influence/power in Syria?

There’s a massive Russian diaspora living in Israel that has gradually come to command sizeable influence in society and some parts of the permanent bureaucracy, including the formulation of foreign policy. President Putin is also very well respected in Israel for his resolute opposition to anti-Semitism, fascism, and historical revisionism connected to World War II. Furthermore, as an influential Great Power that’s returned to West Asia with its Syrian intervention and is nowadays considered the kingmaker for resolving that country’s crisis, Israel has every reason to pragmatically expand its relations with Russia, especially since this could give it some leverage to better balance its historical relationship with the US.

Nevertheless, Israelis shouldn’t have any unrealistic expectations about Russia directly acting against Iranian influence in Syria. Doing so would risk undermining Moscow’s anti-terrorist campaign there as well as its bilateral relations with the Islamic Republic which are important for maintaining stability in the South Caucasus, Caspian Sea, and Afghanistan. The most that Russia is seemingly willing to do is “passively facilitate” regular Israeli strikes against the IRGC and Hezbollah by not interfering with them per the reported conditions of the September 2015 deconfliction agreement and speculatively not authorizing Syria to use the S-300s and other anti-air defense systems for targeting attacking Israeli jets (which could escalate tensions), which is still a lot.

Saudi Arabia Started Its Aggression against Lebanon; Twisting Hezbollah’s Arm is Impossible – Deputy SG

Nov 4, 2021

Saudi Arabia Started Its Aggression against Lebanon; Twisting Hezbollah’s Arm is Impossible - Deputy SG

By Staff

Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General His Eminence Sheikh Naim Qassem asserted that Saudi Arabia is disturbed because it couldn’t dominate the political decision in Lebanon despite the cash it had spent on its allies in Lebanon, pointing out that Saudi Arabia couldn’t put up with its casualties in the region, so its aggression on Lebanon was just a reaction, and that is one of the reasons behind the current crisis in Lebanon.

Sheikh Qassem asserted that the timing of the Saudi aggression on Lebanon is linked to Marib and Riyadh’s terrible loss in Yemen, so that it’s trying to divert attention from the battles there by exercising pressure on Lebanon.

The Hezbollah Deputy Secretary General said that Riyadh should apologize for its unjustified aggression on Lebanon, noting that the kingdom is not doing the right thing because nobody can twist the arm of Hezbollah and the Lebanese people.

“Lebanon is not a scapegoat and it’s challenging Saudi Arabia as an independent country. We won’t accept Saudi Arabia’s interference in the government after all the achievements it has accomplished,” Sheikh Qassem added.

His Eminence also said, “We will not surrender or give up on our dignity to please Saudi Arabia, even if it had practiced aggression on us, and we don’t hold responsibility for anything that happened”, pointing out that “Saudi Arabia might continue its aggression against Lebanon, as it doesn’t have any disciplines. It wants to take revenge, and it has to apologize. If it wants to continue its aggression, it will have more casualties.”

Regarding the Tayouneh Massacre, Sheikh Qassem said that “the US couldn’t achieve its goals in Lebanon despite all its attempts, and it had tried with all the possible means to turn the Lebanese public on Hezbollah but it couldn’t make it.”

He asserted that the discord that was sought in Tayyouneh massacre is an American-Saudi act executed by the Lebanese Forces party, but Hezbollah and Amal Movement have aborted it for the sake of Lebanon, pointing out that the Lebanese Forces is the sole party that receives allocations from Saudi Arabia, and the Americans have tried to integrate the Lebanese Forces members into the “NGO” groups to enhance their image.

Sheikh Qassem also talked about the maritime borders, saying that the Lebanese government is the one who says where our borders are, and Hezbollah doesn’t interfere in that, adding that “we are waiting for the government to finish the demarcation process and the disputed areas.”

He also stressed that “If the government says that the “Israeli” enemy is assaulting a disputed area, we, as a resistance, will do our duty.”

Regarding the relationship with Syria, Sheikh Qassem noted that the relationship between Hezbollah and Syria is very good, especially with Bashar al-Assad as a president, and the relations with the Syrian Arab Army is very good as well, adding that such relations are unshakable, and that there is a high level of coordination on the mutual ties.

He said that the Hezbollah-Syrian relationship is one that became deep by blood, resistance, and liberation, and that such relationship was never this good in any past period.

His Eminence also said that “many of our Resistance fighters have come back to Lebanon, and the number of fighters that stayed there is related to the situation on the ground”, asserting that “we are ready for any larger or lower presence there depending on the developments.”

Israel Bombs Several Posts in Damascus Countryside from Over Palestine

 ARABI SOURI 

Israel bombs sites in Damascus countryside- Syria

Israel bombed a number of posts before noon today, unprovoked, and only to add to the pressure on the Syrian people exerted by the NATO Turkish madman Erdogan in the north with his Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist groups, and the escalation in plundering and oppression by the US-sponsored Kurdish SDF separatist terrorists in the northeast of Syria.

A Syrian military spokesperson state to Sana:

“At around eleven and 17 minutes this morning, the Israeli enemy fired a burst of surface-to-surface missiles from the direction of northern occupied Palestine, targeting some points in the Damascus countryside. Our air defenses confronted the aggression’s missiles and shot down some of them.”

The Syrian military spokesperson added, “the aggression resulted in two soldiers wounded and some material losses.”

British prominent investigative journalist Vanessa Beeley was within a 100 meters proximity from one of the targeted sites in Damascus countryside, she explains her experience in this thread:

Vanessa Beeley tweeting (thread) from Damascus Countryside near a site that was targeted.

This is the first time in a very long while the US-protectorate known as Israeli carry out aggression in the day time, Israel usually committed its war crimes in the dense of the night and from behind civilian airplanes, or like the last aggression when it bombed a Syrian Army base near Tadmor (Palmyra) tasked to combat ISIS from over the US soldiers illegally deployed in the Al Tanf illegal military base earlier this on the 13th of this month October, which also resulted in a strong response by the resistance axis from both Syria and Iraq against those soldiers who facilitated the aggression.

Mark these Israeli aggressions and its continuous war crimes against the whole region, it will become handy when the Syrians and others retaliate, the Israelis will start crying they’re the victims.

Erdogan Beefing Up Turkish Army in Idlib to Protect al Qaeda Terrorists

ARABI SOURI 

Erdogan beefs up Turkish forces to protect Al Qaeda in Idlib

Erdogan, the Turkish madman is up to nothing good, as usual, NATO’s top leader is beefing up his forces in ‘Al Qaeda last stronghold’ in the Syrian Idlib province anticipating an imminent military operation by the Syrian Arab Army and its allies to clean the province from Al Qaeda and its affiliates, the madman and sultan wannabe continues to place conscript Turkish troops as human shields to protect the terrorists he considers more loyal to him.

Multiple sources confirmed the entry of large columns of military vehicles and tanks into the Idlib province in the northwest of Syria through the Kafr Lucin border crossing over the past two days, previous columns entered through the same crossing on the 21st of the month.

The video is also on BitChute.

These new units are added to the already beefed up Turkish army units in the observation posts especially the ones in the Zawya Mountain region of Idlib province, which have been only grown in numbers instead of reducing them as Erdogan’s own commitments before the Russian President Putin and in line with the multiple agreements within the framework of the Astana de-escalation zones, Idlib Agreement, Moscow Agreement, and even the Adana Accord signed when Erdogan was still the mayor of Istanbul and months only before he was jailed for inciting radicalism against the secular state of Turkey.

Under the initial agreements to establish the de-escalation zones and within its points, the Turkish army would establish 11 military points to serve as observation posts to monitor the radical terrorist groups under Turkey’s control and to work on disarming them from medium and heavy weapons. Instead, Erdogan increased the number of those zones with dozen new ones and instead of disarming the radical terrorists, most of who are from Al Qaeda Levant which keeps changing its name (Nusra Front, ISIS, HTS, FSAHamzat, Sultan Murad..), Erdogan beefed up their numbers with new recruits, supplied them with more heavy weapons and high-tech drones and pushed many of them into suicide missions to bomb the Russian base in Hmeimim!

The latest augmentation in the number of Turkish troops in the Idlib province is yet another proof that Turkey is not to be trusted in any agreement, Erdogan, the NATO leader is a flipflop on the personal and political levels, the Turkish Army is still hoping to drag its NATO brethren into a confrontation with the Syrian Army and its Russian allies in Syria, and hoping that a large number of the Turkish soldiers get killed in such confrontation to shore up his dwindling support base in his country due to the devastating economic crises created by his military adventures abroad by gaining more support for those ‘fallen soliders’ in order for the people to forget their pressing economic issues, this cheap policy works well in the USA and other western countries, why shouldn’t it work for Turkey? Believes the up to no good flipflop Erdogan.

NATO Liquidating their Terrorists in Syria: One Al Qaeda Commander, Two SDF Commanders Droned

 ARABI SOURI 

NATO Turkish drone bomb NATO Kurdish SDF terrorists in northern Syria

NATO, the evil camp that invades countries under the pretext of ‘spreading democracy’ and upholding ‘human rights’ is now resorting to arbitrary killings of their own staff on a third country’s soil, in this case, Syria. The White House junta killed a commander of Al Qaeda, a US-created and sponsored terrorist organization, and Turkey killed two commanders of the US-sponsored Kurdish SDF separatist terrorist armed group, the two killings were carried out by drones in northern Syria within 24 hours.

Abdul Hamid Al Matar, said to be a leading commander of Al Qaeda was killed by a bombing by a US-operated MQ-9 drone in the town of Suluk in Raqqa countryside, northern Syria.

The US Central Command ‘CENTCOM’ admitted to committing the cross-border arbitrary assassination on its website quoting its own spokesperson:

A U.S. airstrike today in northwest Syria killed senior al-Qaeda leader Abdul Hamid al-Matar. We have no indications of civilian casualties as a result of the strike, which was conducted using an MQ-9 aircraft.

They have no indication of civilian casualties as the result of their strike, a similar statement they said when they massacred 7 Afghani civilians including 3 children in a similar drone bombing last month, September. Even the Pentagon’s own propagandists at the New York Times slammed their military war criminals and habitual liars saying:

Almost everything senior defense officials asserted in the hours, and then days, and then weeks after the Aug. 29 drone strike turned out to be false. The explosives the military claimed were loaded in the trunk of a white Toyota sedan struck by the drone’s Hellfire missile were probably water bottles, and a secondary explosion in the courtyard in a densely populated Kabul neighborhood where the attack took place was probably a propane or gas tank, officials said.
In short, the car posed no threat at all, investigators concluded.
~The New York Times.

Killing this alleged Al Qaeda commander in Syria was carried out without Syria’s knowledge and without the approval of the country where this crime was committed. The Syrian authorities do not know what this Al Qaeda commander was doing in Syria, who he was working for, and how he was based, and most likely operating not far from the US troops and their Kurdish SDF terrorists, both illegally occupying parts of northern Syria? Capturing the alleged terrorist alive would have revealed many secrets, someone considered them to be uncomfortable to discuss and decided their usual convenient way.

NATO top leader Erdogan killing NATO-sponsored Kurdish SDF terrorists:

In another direct drone bombing, NATO member state Turkey eliminated two NATO-sponsored Kurdish SDF separatist terrorist commanders in the northeastern Aleppo countryside.

The two SDF commanders were killed with one of their bodyguards in their vehicle while moving from the Syrian city of Ain Issa in the northern Raqqa countryside to the Syrian city of Ain Arab in the northeastern countryside of Aleppo near the borders with Turkey.

The video is also on BitChute.

The Turkish regime of Erdogan is using the Kurdish SDF terrorists as a justification for his illegal incursion into Syria in a blatant breach of international law, the UN Charter, the Adana Accord, and all UNSC resolutions in which almost all of them his regime has endorsed, it’s also a breach of the agreements of Sochi and Moscow signed by himself before the Russian and Iranian leaders.

However, the same Turkish regime of Erdogan does not see in Al Qaeda and all its derivatives as the so-called HTS, Nusra Front (Al Qaeda Levant), ISIS, the Turkestan Islamist Party (mainly Chinese Uighur and Chechen terrorists), Faylaq Sham (Muslim Brotherhood head-choppers), and the FSA as terrorists, on the contrary, the Turkish madman Erdogan pushes the Turkish Army, the second-largest army in NATO, in front of these Al Qaeda terrorists to act as human shields for them in the face of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies.

NATO eliminating its proxies is a usual tactic by this alliance which its very existence should have ceased after the collapse of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact, decades ago, instead, its officials continue to create new enemies around the world and invade, bomb, and loot countries under different pretexts: humanitarian interventions, spreading democracies, attacking terrorist groups they only created, toppling governments that don’t allow their corporations to loot their countries while protecting regimes that do, rendering the United Nations Security Council into a complete useless farce, if they can issue a resolution from the UNSC to justify their war crimes they’ll praise the international body and commit their crimes claiming it’s in accordance with international law, and when they fail to obtain such resolution they attack the UNSC and still commit their crimes claiming it’s in accordance with international law!

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah on Monday lashed out at the Lebanese Forces militia, advising its chief to abandon attempts to ignite a civil war in Lebanon.

In a speech that basically tackled the latest massacre by the notorious militia in Tayouneh last Thursday, Sayyed Nasrallah warned the head of Lebanese Forces party (LF), even without mentioning his name, against any miscalculation regarding the civil war in Lebanon.

Sayyed Nasrallah in this context, revealed the number of Hezbollah fighters who are ready to defend their country.

“Don’t miscalculate and behave,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed LF, adding: “Hezbollah has 100,000 fighters who are fully ready to act in case we just point to them to do so.”

The Hezbollah S.G. said the Lebanese security apparatus confirmed that LF militants and snipers were responsible for Tayouneh massacre which killed seven Lebanese civilians during a protest against the politicization of an investigation into Beirut Port.

Sayyed Nasrallah said that the LF has been for long time instigating the Christians in the country, especially residents of Ain Al-Rimaneh and Al-Hadat, against Hezbollah through creating fake enemy of residents in Dahiyeh.

His eminence stressed that Hezbollah, Amal Movement, the entire Shiite sect and Muslims don’t pose a threat to the Christians in Lebanon, but rather the LF poses an existential threat to them.

Sayyed Nasrallah called on state institutions to hold a serious probe into the massacre in Tayouneh, stressing importance of staging another investigation by the Lebanese Army in order to look into the videos circulated by social media showing Lebanese soldier firing at a peaceful protester during October 14 massacre.

On the issue of Beirut Port blast investigation, his eminence stressed that Hezbollah has been keen to reveal the truth in this issue, slamming judges who gave permission to the ship carrying ammonium nitrate to enter Beirut Port several years ago.

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah praised families of the martyrs who fell in Tayouneh massacre, hailing their patience and wisdom. In this context, his eminence vowed that Hezbollah won’t abandon the martyrs and will go ahead with legal course in a bid to hold the perpetrators accountable.

Lebanese Forces Trying to Ignite Civil War

Sayyed Nasrallah started his speech by congratulating Muslims on the birthday anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), announcing that despite pain and grief, Hezbollah will hold a ceremony to mark the occasion next Friday in Dahiyeh.

His eminence praised celebrations held by the Yemeni people on the occasion, as well as stances announced by Ansarullah leader Sayyed Abdul Malek Al-Houthi.

Sayyed Nasrallah, meanwhile, offered condolences over martyrdom of a number of Afghan people in a terrorist attack staged by ISIL terrorists on a mosque in the city of Kandahar.

He also offered condolences over martyrdom of freed prisoner Medhat Saleh, who was killed by Israeli occupation forces few days ago.

The Hezbollah S.G. then get into the main issue of his speech, the massacre committed by Lebanese Forces militants in Tayouneh last Thursday.

Sayyed Nasrallah said that the LF has been instigating against Hezbollah for long time, trying to create a fake enemy to the Christians in Lebanon.

“The Lebanese Forces party wanted to make our people in Ain Al-Rimaneh, Forn Al-Chebbak and Al-Hadat feel concerned and afraid of people of other regions especially in Dahiyeh.”

“This party and its leader (Samir Geagea) aim at presenting themselves as defenders of Christians in Lebanon in order to serve their goals related to political leadership,” he said, noting that the LF leader has been convicted by the Lebanese judiciary over war crimes.

“In the latest years, the Lebanese Forces, and with the support of regional and international powers, has been working to create an enemy to the Christians in Lebanon and to present himself as the defender of this community against this so-called enemy, which is Hezbollah,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, citing schemes to target Hezbollah by the US, ‘Israel’ and some Gulf states.

And to confirm that Hezbollah is being targeted by the LF along with regional and international powers, Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Lebanese Forces chief focused in his remarks following the massacre in Tayouneh on Hezbollah, despite that fact that three of the seven martyrs are supporters of Amal Movement.

“The real program of the LF is to the civil war, for this scheme leads to the displacement of the Christians and then creating a Christian canton which LF chief aims to rule.”

Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the massacre in Tayouneh opens a new chapter of Hezbollah’s way to deal with the local issue.

He said that both Hezbollah and Amal Movement were reassured by the Lebanese Army a night before the massacre over the security situation in the region of the protest near Justice Palace, where the shooting took place.

Commenting on LF leader’s remarks that the Tayouneh massacre was a “mini May 7 events” Sayyed Nasrallah said that such remarks is a clear claim of responsibility of the shooting.

Hezbollah Defended Christians, LF Existential Threat

Sayyed Nasrallah then elaborated on the idea that Hezbollah is not an enemy to the Christians in Lebanon and Syria. He stressed that Hezbollah’s behavior with Christian in Lebanon and Syria throughout years confirm that the Lebanese Resistance party look at the Christians in the country as political partners and not enemies.

“For those who say that Hezbollah is the enemy of Christians, you can ask the churches which Hezbollah defended in Syria against Takfiri terrorists.”

“When Hezbollah defended its people of the Christians in Syria and the Lebanese border towns against ISIL and Nusra terrorists, the Lebanese Forces party was offering all forms of support to the Takfiris.”

He addressed the Christians in Lebanon by saying: “All those who tell you that Shia and Muslims are an enemy they are fabricating such accusations. The greatest existential threat for you is the Lebanese Forces since this party had allied with the terrorists in Syria.”

Sayyed Nasrallah then pointed to Hezbollah’s behavior towards Christians following the Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000.

“Hezbollah prevented any of its fighters or fighters belonging to Amal Movement from entering the Christian towns in south Lebanon upon the Liberation in 2000. We even did not harm collaborators with Israeli enemy in that towns, rather we handed them over to the Lebanese Army. This was in a bid to avoid any Muslim-Christian sedition.”

Sayyed Nasrallah then said that Hezbollah, throughout years adopted a policy of openness with political parties, including the Christian powers.

“In February 6, 2006 we held a MoU with the largest Christian party, which is the Free Patriotic Movement (FPM),” Sayyed Nasralah said, noting that the LF was the first side who stand against the MoU between Hezbollah and the FPM.

S. Nasrallah Advises LF Not to Miscalculate

Sayyed Nasrallah then advised the LF and its leader to abandon the idea of suing discord in a bid to ignite a civil war in Lebanon.

“If you want to prepare for a civil war then have not to miscalculate. Take a note that Hezbollah is made up of at least 100,00 well-trained and experienced fighters whom can act in case Hezbollah’s leadership points to do so,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the LF and its chief.

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the Resistance is not weak, but rather is keen to preserve security and avoid sedition.

“Hence, I say to LF and its leader: Don’t miscalculate, behave and take lesson from the wars you had been engaged in.”

Sayyed Nasrallah said that the Lebanese state institution along with religious figures, especially the Christians, “must bear responsibility and stand against this criminal butcher in a bid to avoid civil war and preserve national peace.”

He then stressed importance of launching a serious investigation into the massacre in Tayouneh, noting that the Lebanese Army must also do so regarding a video circulated on social media and shows a Lebanese soldier firing at a peaceful protester during Tayouneh shooting.

In this context, Sayyed Nasrallah warned against any dispute between Hezbollah and the Lebanese Army, stressing that the national army is part of the golden formula aimed at defending Lebanon: Army-People-Resistance.

Beirut Port Blast Probe

On the issue of Beirut Port blast probe, Sayyed Nasrallah affirmed that Hezbollah is keen to know the truth behind the tragedy which killed more than 200 Lebanese people and injured thousands on August 4, 2020.

“We won’t take back on this case. It’s a political responsibility to know those who were responsible for this tragedy.”

Several sides contacted Hezbollah and reassured the party that it would not be accused, Sayyed Nasrallah said, noting that those sides also acknowledged that the probe is discretionary.

“The way the probe is going on won’t lead to reveal truth. The judges who gave permission to the ship carrying the ammonium nitrate to enter Beirut Port bears responsibility of the tragedy in the port.”

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah hailed patience and wisdom of Tayouneh massacre’s martyrs, vowing that the blood of those martyrs won’t go in vain.

His eminence also equated Tayouneh martyrs to those of the Resistance who were martyred in defending Lebanon.

“We have to preserve goals achieved by the Resistance and its martyrs, on top of which are security and national peace,” Sayyed Nasrallah addressed martyrs’ families as saying.

Addressing the Resistance supporters, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that this stage prompts more patience and insight in a bid to avoid any form of infighting in the country. In this context, his eminence noted that igniting a civil war is the “last card played by our enemies.”

What Business Does America Have on Syrian Lands!

What Business Does America Have on Syrian Lands!

By Mohammad Sleem

Beirut – As the Syrian crisis reached the end of a devastating war, Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad called for the withdrawal of US and Turkish troops from Syria in a speech to the UN General Assembly in New York lately, asking what the American troops have to do on the Syrian territories.

Mekdad stated that Syria will reassert the government’s control over the entirety of the country again, insisting that “This is a non-negotiable national and constitutional right”.

Moreover, the Syrian foreign minister stressed that foreign presence on Syrian soil without Syria’s approval is both illegitimate and a violation of international law and the UN Charter.

So how is the American presence shaped and formed in Syria in all?

The deployment of American troops and its international allied forces has focused in recent months on the Syrian-Jordanian-Iraqi border triangle at the Tanf border crossing near the deployment of the Syrian Army and its allied forces. The Tanf border crossing is of great importance to all local, regional and international parties involved in the Syrian conflict, in addition to Albukamal in Deir ez-Zor province.

Rmelan Airport:

It is one of the most important locations for US forces. The Ramlan base area has oil wells under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces [SDF]. The base has been constructed by the US in November 2016 after measures to build new facilities and to expand runways. It was originally an airstrip for agricultural pesticide spraying aircraft and helicopters.

The airport, known as Abu Hajar Airport, is located southeast of the town of Rmelan, northeast of Qamishli city in al-Hasaka governorate, close to the Syrian-Turkish-Iraqi border triangle, an area known for its heavy oil production and subject to the People’s Defense Units [YPG]’s self-administration system. The airport is the first established US military presence since the beginning of the war on Syria.

 

Ayn al-Arab Base:

This base is located south of the city of Ayn al-Arab [Kobane] near the village of Kharab Ashiq, about 33 kilometers south of the Turkish border. It is the largest of US base and it provides support to the international coalition forces and its allies. Western newspapers published information from the analysis of satellite images showing housing units for hundreds of soldiers and a fleet of vehicles of different types as well as facilities for military transport aircraft and the defense of al-Qaeda, such as control towers.

Al-Mabrouka Base:

It is a small camp in the village of Al-Mabrouka, where small-scale US forces are located west of Qamishli city in al-Hasaka governorate within the control of the YPG.

 

Rubaria Airport:

Located near the northeastern city of al-Hasakah, near the border with both Iraq and Turkey, the airport was originally a small airstrip for small agricultural aircrafts before the US turned it into a helicopter runway under the supervision of its troops to provide logistics to Kurdish forces and support other international coalition forces fighting the Wahhabi Daesh [Arabic acronym for “ISIS” / “ISIL”].

 

Tell Beydar:

The base is located 30 kilometers northwest of al-Hasaka and is close to the Turkish border. It includes helicopter airstrips and a training camp for non-combat forces such as police, civil defense and others to meet the needs of Kurdish forces in managing the areas they control.

 

White Hill [Tell Abyad]:

A large number of US soldiers are deployed at the base. Some reports indicate more than 200 troops are deployed in the city, and the US flag is raised on some government buildings in the city center.

US forces are present alongside forces from the international coalition and armed opposition states at the Syrian al-Tanf base on the Syrian-Iraqi-Jordanian border triangle. The US requires the establishment of a “no-clash” zone under which no coalition forces of the government allow them to approach or enter.

Furthermore, US forces are also present in several camps in Raqqa province to support the SDF’s operations, which have been fighting to retake Raqqa from Daesh. US forces use artillery of various kinds like rocket launchers and other heavy combat equipment, in addition to various types of intelligence and armored vehicles to conduct joint patrols with the SDF.

US forces are also deployed as training advisers in at least three training camps in al-Hasaka governorate to train Kurdish fighters as well as near the city of Manbij, north of Aleppo, which has been controlled by the SDF since August 2016.

Based on the aforementioned, it’s crystal clear that the US does not have any business in Syria except what it has been doing for decades: draining Syria’s natural resources! Wherever natural resources and oil exist, American troops arrive in a jiffy and settle down.

Assad is Back: Western MSM Admit the Regime Change Failure in Syria

ARABI SOURI 

Assad Must Leave, His Days Are Nunbered
Assad is back, Newsweek Admitting Syria and President Assad victory over the USA and its Camp

Assad is back, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad returns to the world stage in defeat for US, win for its foes, is the title of Newsweek’s latest front-page post on Syria and the US’s 10.5 years of war of terror and war of attrition against the Syrian people.

Let’s not discuss the mainstream media article, to be honest, I didn’t even bother to read it, if it’s positive it means they came to their senses, highly unlikely, if it’s not it means they’re still in their same propaganda, highly likely, so let’s talk about why Assad is back and why the US and its cronies lost in Syria, aside from them telling their followers for more than a decade it was the Syrian people vs. Assad and not the US vs. Assad.

Yes, President Assad is back and you all failed, the more than 100 countries that combined their evil efforts to topple him and hand Syria over to Al Qaeda and other anti-Islamic Muslim Brotherhood radicals the likes of the Turkish madman Erdogan who serves Israel.

He’s back because the Syrians weren’t fooled with your plot and lies, they fought back for more than 10.5 years to defend their country at a very hefty price but they didn’t surrender and they’ll fight back for another decade if needed, except this time not anymore on their land only.

Assad is back because he stood up, stood tall, and earned his people’s respect and the respect of the free people in the world, not the Sheeple of the west who think they’re free just because they can talk bad about their politicians who continue to suck their lives dry.

He’s back because the Syrian people never believed the mainstream media lies; only fools and Sheeple would believe again those who lied before several times to justify the Pentagon wars, only fools would believe that over 350,000 Al Qaeda terrorists armed by the USA and its cronies, financed by all of NATO taxpayers’ money, and the Gulfies, are in Syria to protect the Syrian families from their own brothers, sons, fathers, and sisters of the Syrian Arab Army, only fools would believe that the Syrian Arab Army would drop chemical weapons and bombs on their own family members to protect the president while Al Qaeda with all its derivatives are sent to Syria to protect those families, I’m not sure what drugs those Sheeple of the west are on, what I’m certain of it’s whoever their dealers are they didn’t cheat them and provided them with some real mind-absenting stuff.

President Assad was offered tens of billions of dollars just to retire in a place of his choice, he was offered to rule the region unchallenged just to accept the US policies, which is against the interests of his own people, then they went to threaten him and his family, they managed to kill his brother-in-law and his top aides and some of Syria’s top officials including the Syrian defense minister, he didn’t flee, he kept showing up in his office, on the frontlines, and among his people, driving alone, yes, something none of those NATO leaders dares to do in their ‘democratic’ societies, and above all, while they were plotting Syria’s destruction he was planning for victory, and victory he achieved.

Yes, Assad is back and you have to deal with it.
