Israel fighter jets destroyed a Syrian S-200 air defense battery because the Syrian air defense corps targetted an aggressive Israeli fighter jet earlier in this morning.

Monday October 16, 2017 : ”An anti-craft missile was launched from Syria towards IDF air plane during a ‘routine‘ flying over Lebanon! The IDF spokesperson declared. Moreover, the Israeli source pretended that this warplane was a ‘reconnaissance’ plane. The source added, that the Israeli plane was not hit, however the Israeli Defence forces decided to hit the battery of the Syrian anti-aircraft.

The Israeli army targetted the battery with four bombs, according to the IDF, to the level it was no longer operational. The Israeli army said that this anti-aircraft battery was active against the Israeli aggression in March.

Ironically, these are great lies of the Zionist Israel, which reportedly uses the Lebanese airspace to bomb sites inside Syria, like for example, the Israeli attack against Massyaf in the countryside of Hama province on September 7/2017 which killed two Syrians and destroyed the site.
No Syrian statement yet. Moreover Israel declared that they informed Russia about it some hours after the visit of

Israel claimed that they informed Russia about it some hours after the visit of Russian President Putin to the defense ministry according to the Israeli media.

It is exactly like when Trump bombed Al Shuayrat air base on 6th of April 2017, also after informing Russia.

Funnily, according to the Zionist entity of the Occupiers of Palestine aka Israel, they have the right to bomb the military and the science locations inside Syria and demands no counter-attack be made.

As Israel is swimming in a sea of nuclear bombs, only them have the right of this military power in the region; Therefore Israel also wants to send a message to Iran and Hezbollah, which are also under the strikes of them. The message is ‘it is not allowed for Iran to have more influence in the region than Israel does, which is worried after the Collapse of the Islamist State militants in Syria’. Israel is the original enemy of Syria and its regional allies, Iran and Hezbollah. That’s the reason its backed rebels, started the war against Syria, also by bombing the Syrian important facilities.

Russia is doing great in Syria by eliminating the foreign-backed terrorists. However, we need more reaction towards this Israeli aggression, but at the same time we can say, fighting ISIS is like fighting Israel.

The Syrian authorities seized weapons from terrorists (Made in Israel) in the area between Hama and Homs.

Lately, the Syrian General Command of the Army and Armed forces issued a statement about the Israeli attack and the real story, here is a part of it: ‘Earlier today at 8:51 this morning, Israeli enemy aircraft’s penetrated our airspace on the Lebanese border in Baalbak area. Our air defenses countered the attack hit one of the Israeli planes directly and enforced them to retreat.’ The statement added that our leadership in the Army and the armed forces are determined to continue its war against the armed terrorist groups who are the arm of Israel in the region.

Pentagon allows 1,000 Daesh fighters to enter Syria

During a press conference on 13 October 2017, the Russian Chief of Staff, General Sergey Rudskoy, indicated that the US Coalition’s bombings in Iraq are very infrequent. Because of this, a thousand Daesh fighters have been able to leave the country for Syria.

These fighters, together with another 2000 fighters, participated in an attack against the Syrian Arab Army. However the Syrian Arab Army had been able to ward it off.

Trump’s hypocritical policy in Syria possibly work of rogue CIA agents

    

Does anybody believe the U.S. is acting honorably in Syria? Well? The Russians don’t and they’ve been accusing the U.S. of duplicity in the fight against ISIS and pure indifference in the fight against Alqaeda which is now called Jabhat Fath Al-Shaam. American two-facedness has reasons which need some analysis.

It is hard for this writer to tell if Donald Trump really has his finger on the foreign policy button. It is even more debatable whether Rex Tillerson has any influence on foreign policy. The entire Trump administration has the appearance of a failing amateur circus existing only for some kind of tax deduction. Nowhere in the world is this more obvious than in Syria.

We all agree that if the U.S. wanted the war in Syria to end, it could contribute mightily to that conclusion by stopping all forms of assistance to ISIS and pressuring its allies in Saudi Arabia to turn off the financial spigot which is the first form of enticement these terrorist organizations can deploy to gain and keep recruits. In interview after interview in Iraq and Syria, captured ISIS rodents continue to repeat the same mantra: that they joined ISIS because it paid them $100.00 per month as a salary when nobody else in the country could deliver such generous sums. In recently liberated Hawija, an ISIS recruit from the Muhaymin family told interviewers exactly that. Other factors such as fear of Shi’i expansion, of course, are notable, but, in the final analysis, it’s money that talks in the world of recruitment.

The U.S. has been filmed, recorded and seen by witnesses who claim that the U.S. Air Force and Army would transport ISIS terrorists by helicopter from areas about to be overtaken by the legitimate Syrian Army. Russia’s observers at Humaymeem have received very credible reports confirming America’s hypocritical policies toward Syria. If it is true that Donald Trump is opposed to ISIS and has ordered his DoD to destroy it, then, in that case, it appears that another agency of government is working to sabotage the president’s policies. That agency is, obviously, the CIA.

During the Obama years, the CIA was geared to overthrowing the legitimate government in Damascus, a war crime and a violation of international law. CIA was committed to giving logistical support, training and financial help to organizations already listed as “terrorist” by the State Department. Many of those terrorist groups were being supported by Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the Emirates who tended to favor groups fighting under the banner of Wahhabism. Thus, with American allies complicit in the plot to oust Dr. Assad, it became even easier for the CIA to infiltrate and control many of the actions of the criminal enterprises lumped into the generic “opposition” label. Those same CIA agents who were deeply involved in the failed operation to remove Assad from power are still in the CIA and have not joined the Trump bandwagon.

That’s one theory. Another theory holds that Trump’s own sordid association with Prime Minister Benny Mileikowski, (a/k/a Netanyahu) pushes the president into the twilight world of Janus where he says one thing while doing something other. Trump appears to be under the Mileikowski thumb as he plods his way from one disaster to another. In fact, his decision to “decertify” the Iranian Nuclear Accord might be proof positive of the Rasputin-like influence Mileikowski enjoys over this new kook in the White House.

Iran’s growing influence in the region and its deeply-rooted intellectual heritage terrifies the Saudis and their rag-head allies in the Gulf. While Iran has lived with crushing sanctions for years before the nuclear accord, it was still able to erect a formidable technological edifice that is now growing exponentially. In the meanwhile, the Saudis, who practice a pre-Cambrian form of devil-worship, cannot export anything but oil and dates. And the oil is pumped, refined and shipped out by foreigners. God only knows who picks the dates and packages them. It’s certainly not the Saudis.

It is clear to this writer that the Americans are not worried about Dr. Assad who seems, if anything, to be a slick operator who can marshall resources and alliances with his father’s cunning. I sincerely believe that the move to oust the good doctor is viewed, even in the CIA, as a massive blunder, and, that he is viewed today in McLean, Virginia, as a better option than either Alqaeda or ISIS. However, the Iranian bogeyman’s shadow is not dispelled by the continuity of the Ba’athist government in Damascus. Iran’s power seems to be growing alarmingly. It is quite possible that the CIA has come to the final conclusion that, like it or not, Assad has to go in order for the project in Syria to bear fruit. The hypocrisy is playing out with this kind of thinking.

The CIA appears to be focused today on the possibility of manipulating the Iraqi government into an agreement to permit U.S. forces to remain in Iraq long after ISIS has been vanquished. With the U.S. policy in Syria aimed at creating a buffer along the border to block Iranian natural gas pipelines in tatters after Damascus (with Iran’s help) neutralized the base at Al-Tanf, the U.S. has the other option of playing the Iraqi card. If only Baghdad would permit such an agreement.

It is our opinion that Baghdad is more influenced by Iran than by the U.S. It is a sorry conclusion for the CIA that it has participated in fighting ISIS in Mesopotamia, seemingly, once again, at the behest of Tehran. Just as Iran watched gleefully as the U.S. destroyed Saddam’s Iraq only to be asked politely to leave by the Al-Maaliki government, it will watch even more gleefully as the U.S. struggles to extirpate ISIS from Iraq only to find out that P.M. Al-‘Abbaadi will also ask the Americans politely to head home after the present task is finished. This might be why the Kurdish card is being played now despite the protests from Ankara.

Note that the U.S. is willing to sacrifice its relationship with Turkey over this issue. Absolutely unwilling to accept a Rabelaisian failure of its entire Syrian project, the CIA continues to pursue one delusion after another. Maybe ousting Dr. Assad and his Ba’athist government is not as much a priority any longer – maybe it’s a secondary goal which will come about when all the CIA ducks are finally in a row. This de-prioritization of overthrowing the government in Damascus is only a ploy to permit the U.S. to play a duplicitous game in Syia – to pretend to be fighting ISIS whilst providing it with all it needs to remain a thorn in the sides of the two governments in Syria and Iraq. With this scenario in play, the U.S. can expect the Iraqi government to continue “needing” the U.S. And if ISIS is miraculously destroyed, then, there is the U.S.-created crisis with the Kurds. (Even now Iraqi forces appear poised to strike the Kurds at Kirkuk.)

Donald Trump does not read anything but articles that praise him. In only 8 months, he has taken the U.S. out of the Paris Accord on Climate Change, but, with the hope that the “Master Negotiator” can get a “better deal” for the American people. He is threatening to leave NAFTA unless he gets a better deal for the American people. He has withdrawn from UNESCO because it is too mean to the Zionist Apartheid State. He withdrew American support for the Pacific Rim nations’ pact and left it high and dry. He just signed an executive order to denigrate the Affordable Care Act since Congress has been unwilling to abandon millions of Americans who finally have medical coverage. He has concluded a deal with the Saudis, the world’s biggest supporters of terrorism, providing billions in weapons and ordnance while the people of Yemen are suffering under the barbaric heel of Wahhabist-inspired mayhem. He has clumsily dealt with the aftermath of the devastation caused by a category 5 hurricane in Puerto Rico. He has “decertified” the Iranian Nuclear Accord claiming Iran is violating the “spirit” of the agreement. He has brought shame and disgrace to the U.S. and sullied its reputation as an honorable nation.


Comment: Strange how the author recognizes that the US is widely seen as a rogue state and supporter of terrorism yet somehow it’s Trump that ‘sullied its honorable reputation’.

Is American policy in Syria two-faced? Yes. With Trump claiming to be fighting ISIS, his own CIA has been ordered to maintain a “second track” to block Iran’s growth in the region. We would like to warn the Prime Minister of Iraq that his head might be on the chopping block as the U.S. entrenches itself in his country. Trump will not leave as easily as Obama because Mileikowski will order him to stay.

Russia’s Air Force Kill Over 30 U.S. Israeli Terrorist-ISIS Ringleaders In Syria

Russian Air Force

MOSCOW, October 13. /TASS/. Russia’s Aerospace Forces have killed more than 30 terrorist ringleaders since the beginning of October, the chief of the Main Operations Department of Russia’s General Staff, Sergey Rudskoy, said.

“Special attention was paid to destroying the heads of armed groups. Since early October, ~ 31 of them have been killed,” the general said.

According to the general, on October 3, the leader of Jabhat al-Nusra, Abu Mohammad al-Julani, was seriously wounded, and its security chief Ahmad al-Gizai and several field commanders were killed.

Rudskoi also said that Russian Aerospace Force had made 383 sorties near Deir ez-Zor over the past week and destroyed 993 targets of so-called Islamic State (a terrorist group banned in Russia).

“Over the past week, only near Deir ez-Zor warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Force have made 383 combat sorties and destroyed 993 targets of ISIS terrorists [former name of Islamic State – TASS],” he said.

Rudskoy added that three intensive missile and air strikes had hit terrorists’ vital facilities with air-to-surface cruise missiles Kh-101 launched from a TU-95 strategic bomber and Kalibr cruise missiles launched from submarines.

“Long-range precision weapons destroyed 37 targets, namely munitions depots, areas with a high concentration of militants and vehicles along with terrorists’ communication units and command centers,” he added.

According to Rudskoi, less than eight percent of Syria’s territory are still controlled by Islamic State.

“As of today, an area of 14,800 square kilometers, or less than eight percent of the Syrian territory, is under control of Islamic State,” he said.

The Russia air force will continue its operation against militants of Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist groups until they are completely eliminated, the general said.

The Russian General Staff does not rule out repeated attacks by Jabhat al-Nusra (a terror organization outlawed in Russia) militants over the city of Hama, and appropriate measures are being taken.

He noted that after a September 19 attack by Jabhat al-Nusra militants over positions of the government forces near Hama, the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone was stabilized. “Today, deployment of ceasefire control forces has started directly in the zone,” Rudskoy said.

However, the general noted, “Jabhat al-Nusra groups and gangs beholden to it are being deployed from the northern districts of the Idlib Governorate to the south and the southeast.” “Repeated attacks by militants over the city of Hama are possible,” Rudskoy said.

“Syria’s forces and aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces are taking all measures to prevent spread of armed groups from the given de-escalation zone,” the general stressed.

He reiterated that on September 19 Jabhat al-Nusra attacked positions of the Syrian forces north and northeast of Hama. The offensive was brought to a halt and terrorists pushed back to their release points. Terrorists incurred substantial damages: the government forces killed 2,400 militants and destroyed 27 tanks, 21 multiple rocket launchers, 14 infantry fighting vehicles, 160 pickup trucks and 25 mortars.

Syrian Forces take positions at the top of Mount Annan overlooking the Tishrin dam, after they captured it on Saturday from US Israeli Islamic State terrorists, south of Kobani, Syria December 27, 2015.

Syrian army’s success

The Syrian government troops were able to repel the attacks by 3,000 terrorists in late September and break the blockade of the road to Es Sukhne, according to Rudskoi.

“In late September, the chieftains of the ISIS made the attempt of a large-scale counter-offensive into the depth of the Syrian territory, which involved about 3,000 militants. This grouping was created also through the re-deployment of detachments from Iraq,” Rudskoi said.

“Currently, the operation to liberate the city and free the road has been completed and all the terrorist formations have been eliminated,” the Russian general said.

According to Rudskoi, “over a thousand terrorists with tanks, multiple launch rocket systems and artillery crossed the Syrian border near the town of Abu Kamal from the Iraqi provinces of Anbar and Nineveh where the operation of the US-led coalition is under way” while another 450 IS militants attacked the government troops’ positions from the area near the community of Al Tanf.

Separate terrorist groups were still able to blockade the Es Sukhne – Deir ez-Zor road and also advance towards the town of al-Karatain, the general said.

“As a result of decisive operations by the government troops with the support of the Russian air task force, the terrorists failed to achieve their goals and the ISIL counter-offensive was thwarted while the terrorists’ main forces were eliminated,” the head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operations Department said.

The general also said that Syria’s government forces had entered Mayadin, the largest city under control of the Islamic State.

“Over the past 10 days, the units of General Hassan Sukhel have entered Mayadin, which remains the major settlement that is under control of ISIL (former name of IS),” Rudskoy said.

In Mayadin, in eastern Syria’s Deir ez-Zor Governorate, the terrorists planned to set up a powerful fortified region and pulled in their most combat-effective forces. “Currently, the city is fully seized and the operation to liberate its central quarters is about to be completed,” he said.

Syrian government troops have also completely eliminated Islamic State units near the city of Akerbat. In all, militants have been driven out of 57 populated localities over the past month, Rudskoi said.

“In central Syria, government troops have completely eliminated Islamic State units besieged near the city of Akerbat. Over the past month, Islamic State terrorists have been driven out of 57 populated localities,” he said, adding that government control has been established over an area of 236 square kilometers.

Apart from that, de-escalation zones continue to function in southern Syria, in Eastern Ghouta and ion the north of the province of Homs, and near Tell Rifaat. “Russian military police officers are ensuring the observance of the ceasefire in these zones,” Rudskoi said.

The US-Led Coalition is Destroying Everything in Syria, Except ISIS

US-Led Coalition Crimes in Syria

The US-led coalition in Syria uses its illegal base al-Tanaf to train and transfer terrorists from the ISIS terrorist organization into Syrian cities.

Major-General Igor Konashenkov, the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense, said on Wednesday:

Moscow wanted to know how around 300 Daesh terrorists in pickup trucks had passed through the U.S.-controlled area and tried to block the highway between Damascus and Deir al-Zor used to supply Syrian forces?

He said the United States had not yet given an explanation.

“We suggest the American side also explain about another incidence of their ‘selective blindness’ towards terrorists operating under their nose,” Konashenkov said in a statement.

He said about 600 terrorists based in a refugee camp in the U.S. controlled area had driven en masse to a former customs post called Tafas on the Syrian-Jordanian border earlier this month and seized food and medical supplies meant for locals! Not very long time ago, the US-backed Kurdish militants, the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces ‘HSD‘, who are nothing to do with being Syrian, But Militants for controlling the Syrian oil resources under the support of the US-led coalition, moved towards the Euphrates banks by the support of ISIS militants, SDF (HSD) move freely with ISIS militants presence!

The US-led coalition in this Syrian territory established its illegal base al-Tanaf, and it is always warning the Syrian Arab Army and its allies from advancing towards this site, once by dropping leaflets warning the Syrian Arab Army to stay 55 km away from Al Tanaf Area, another time by striking the Syrian soldiers and their allies.

However, for the ISIS terrorists, they are well armed and with their machine-guns and other medium guns mounted pick-up trucks can move freely in this al-Tanaf area and to any part they want.Ironically, the US always find the lies, but who would believe them, with the Russian satellites, which revealed the US special forces operate at ISIS positions in Deir Al Zour, moreover the movement of those ISIS

The United States always find lies, but who would believe them with the Russian satellite images which revealed the US special forces operate at ISIS positions in Deir Al Zour? Moreover, the movement of those ISIS alongside the SDF ‘HSD’. Here how the US used to justify its illegal presence in AlTanaf Base:

The United States says al-Tanaf facility is a temporary base used to train partner forces to fight against Daesh ‘ISIS’. Pentagon spokesman Colonel Robert Manning on Tuesday said Washington remained committed to killing off Daesh and denying it safe havens and the ability to carry out strikes.

Are you going to believe?!

Walid Al Moallem, Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Minister said it all:

Syrian authorities seized, again, another shipment of weapons on 9 October 2017 which was on its way to the terrorist groups in the south of Idlib, al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda Levant aka HTS) and its affiliated terrorist groups.

The head of operations department in the Syrian Arab Army General Ali al-Ali said that the United States is arming the terrorists in Syria, not the ‘moderate rebels’. The weapons were coming from the west to the terrorist groups, most of it was American, French and Belgian made weapons.

A spokesman for the Pentagon, the War Ministry of the United States, alleged in last May that the United States is sending weapons to the ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (HSD) to help liberate Raqqa from ISIS terrorist organization.

SAA General al-Ali said: we know about the US arming terrorist groups, the United States has supplied those terrorist groups by weapons in the period between 5th of June through 15 September 2017 with 1421 trucks filled with weapons and military equipment.

The US has maintained a narrative that these weapons were to fight terrorist groups, however, these weapons ended up in the hands of terrorists in al-Nusra Front and ISIS! The west is transferring these weapons to the radicals in the

The West is transferring these weapons to the radicals in the Middle East across the sea, and it reaches those radical terrorists in Syria across the border which are not under the Syrian government control.

Lavrov calls on US to explain coalition’s behavior in Syria

Moscow expects Washington to give a definite answer on the US-led coalition’s actions near Syria’s al-Tanf and the Iraqi-Syrian border, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday. “We often ask about these issues via the channels between the military, this is the main channel to clarify any doubts and suspicions,” TASS quoted Lavrov as saying. “I expect that the military, as people who are precise and business-minded, will get definite answers to their questions from the American partners.” On Wednesday, Russian military cited cases when Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists freely infiltrated the US-controlled zone and seized humanitarian aid intended for local people.

Re: The next war will be waged against Lebanon, Syria and Gaza, says Lieberman

Israel’s Defence Minister has said that the next war waged on Israel’s northern front will not only be against Hezbollah in Lebanon, but also Syria, and hostilities will also include the Gaza Strip. Avigdor Lieberman made his comments in a speech to army officers at the Defence Ministry in Tel Aviv on Monday on the eve of the Yom Kippur holiday.

“The next war in the north will not only be the Lebanese front, but rather a united front made up of Syria and Lebanon,” Lieberman explained. “The Lebanese army has lost its independence and has become an integral part of Hezbollah.” He added that Israel will not have a war on a single front. “The next war will be fought on both fronts [north and south].” This, obviously, implies that Gaza will again be a target for an Israeli military offensive.

“We are trying our best to prevent the next war,” claimed the extreme right-wing minister, “but in this ‘new’ Middle East, it is no longer predicted that war is unlikely, like in the past.” Such predictions, he suggested, do not reflect the sensitive reality in the region; war may occur from one moment to the next, or overnight.

Read: This is the last chance to help Gaza

“Everything suggests that we must plan for a serious ground invasion, and there is no invasion without strong fire. Our tanks must provide such strong fire, just as the air defence must prevent great losses for Israel.”

The minister concluded that Israel must prepare for any potential scenario, as the new reality holds challenges for everyone.

At terrorists’ door: RT crew caught in fierce fight against ISIS in Syria (VIDEO)

Syrian government troops, backed by Russian airstrikes, are waging a daily struggle to retake every inch of territory from the Islamic State terrorists in the province of Deir-ez Zor.

Over the past week, Russian jets have intensified their sorties, conducting up to 150 surgical strikes against terrorist convoys coming into Syria from Iraq, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense.

RT’s Murad Gazdiev managed to get first-hand experience of the fighting as he accompanied the Syrian military across the only bridge over the Euphrates river in the area – straight to the frontline in Hatla village in Deir-ez Zor province.

Gazdiev was standing just 500 meters from IS positions when the terrorists launched their assault, which started with an engine roar leading to fire from guns and heavier weapons.

IS terrorists use a harassing tactic against the troops – opening fire as they hide behind houses, driving around in circles at high speed, firing and quickly retreating before the military can respond, Gazdiev said with salvos audible nearby.

French ‘Jihadi Granny’ who followed son to Syria sentenced to 10yrs in jail









 






A radicalized Frenchwoman dubbed ‘Jihadi Granny’ has been jailed for 10 years after following her son to Syria, where he was fighting for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

Christine Rivière, 51, was sentenced following a trial in which she was charged with criminal conspiracy with a view to preparing terrorist acts.

The ‘Jihadi Granny’ said she followed her eldest son to Syria in order to support him and spend time with him, in case he faced an early death.

Rivière’s son, Tylor Vilus, converted to Islam in 2011 at the age of 21. He quickly became radicalized, moving to Tunisia to engage with jihadist groups there.

She followed him to Tunisia, also converted, and began following her son’s radicalized views.

Vilus left for Syria in 2013, backed by the support of his mother who sent him money and encouragement.

When her son left for Syria in 2013 and told her he as moving up the ranks of IS, Rivière reportedly replied: “I knew you’d do well, you’re made for that.” She also allegedly put him in touch with potential brides who were interesting in joining IS.

Rivière visited her son in Syria three times in 2013 and 2014, and was arrested in July 2014 as she was allegedly trying to move there permanently. A husband was reportedly waiting for her upon arrival in the country.

She said during the trial that she enjoyed Syria and preferred it over France, “despite the bombings and shootings,” according to court papers published by Le Monde.

“I wanted to make the most of [time with] my son before he dies… I know that will happen, of course, and if it does I’ll be happy for him because I know what that means for him. I know he will have a place in paradise… I want what he wants, like every good mother,” Rivière reportedly told investigators, the Guardian reported.

She denied claims that she financially supported IS, telling investigators it was “normal” to send her son money. She also denied personally fighting for the terrorist group.

“It was my son who took care of everything. I paid for the plane ticket,” Rivière said, as quoted by Libération newspaper. “I love my son. Since he became a Muslim, he has better behavior. But he has done things for which I do not agree too much.”

When asked about photos showing her heavily armed in Syria, she said she merely carried a weapon in the war-torn country “like everybody else.”

However, court papers state that violent propaganda pictures were found on her computer.

Rivière’s son was arrested in Turkey in July 2015 while traveling on a Swedish passport. He is currently awaiting trial in prison while an investigation is underway into his role in IS.
