Russian media quoted Zakharova as saying “That was the extent of their commitment to the international law and the victory of democracy; supplying poisonous materials to the terrorists with presenting photos of pictures for killed children as a coverage,” adding “this is beyond mind understanding.”

Syrian Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad affirmed on Wednesday that the United States, Britain and their allies in the region breach the Chemical Weapons convention by supporting terrorist organizations in Syria and supplying them with toxic materials and weapons of all forms.

Mikdad, in a meeting held with a number of journalists at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry HQ, called on the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW)to investigate into the US, Britain and Turkey’s supply to terrorist organizations, which are present in Syria, with internationally-banned poisonous  materials.

He said that since the beginning of the crisis in the country, reports about the use of chemical weapons in different areas have been frequently occurring in the media and usually Western countries, relying on the allegations of terrorist groups, were accusing the Syrian state without any evidence.

“Syria has received the fact-finding committee of the OPCW and opened all doors in front of them for investigation, but they refused,” said Mikdad, adding that Syria has carried out all its obligations, but when this doesn’t serve the US, it will be rejected.

In a relevant context, Mikdad pointed out that a number of western states push terrorists to carry out war crimes by supplying them with large quantities of special materials which include Turkish-made chemical materials, and according to experts, these materials are used to manufacture chemical weapons.

Syrian Army Defeats ISIS in El-Qder

Tags

, , ,

“For the first time since the beginning of hostilities against the ISIS terrorist group in Syria, the government forces managed to organize and conduct a virtuosic operation to land a tactical landing in the rear of the militants, followed by the defeat and capture of the settlement. El-Qder (about 120 km west of the city of Deir ez-Zor).

The operation was conducted under the direction of one of the most famous Syrian commanders – General Suhel Hassan. The Russian military advisors directly participated in the preparation and management of the operation.

Departure of the landing group took place from the Jerah airfield, previously liberated from igilov in the eastern part of the province of Aleppo.

The beginning of the landing operation was preceded by an effective fire damage to the positions and techniques of the IGSIL ​​grouping in the area, carried out by the Syrian Army’s reactive artillery and Ka-52 helicopters from the Russian army aviation. With the help of night vision systems, the glorified “Alligators” not only effectively directed and corrected the MLRS fire, but also themselves destroyed armored vehicles and armed motor vehicles of terrorists.

The landing party landed near the settlements of Khirbet Mikman and El-Khad in the province of Rakka, located 20 km from the front line.

After powerful fire strikes, the paratroopers landed, passing along the dried bed of the river to the settlement El-Qder, captured the dominant height and began to storm the settlement.
In a brief battle, the Syrian paratroopers, under the personal leadership of General Suhel Hassan, destroyed the headquarters and warehouses of the militants, knocked down two tanks and three armored vehicles.

The landing party held the captured positions until the main forces arrived on the morning of August 12. The actions of the tactical landing force and the effectiveness of the fire damage inflicted on the IGIL fighters allowed the government troops to seize El-Keder without losses.

Demoralized and battle-worthy terrorists retreated from the area. Under the control of the Syrian army passed a total complexity of about 60 square kilometers, three settlements, as well as two oil fields.” – Defense Ministry of Russia

Syrian War Report – August 11, 2017: Syrian Government Forces liberate thousands km2 on Syrian-Jordanian border line

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) military wing and other pro-government factions have liberated from U.S.-backed militant groups thousands km2 in southeastern Syria, including 30 km of the border with Jordan. The recently liberated area includes Tal al-Tabaqah, Tal al-Riahi, Tal Asda, Tal al-Ezami, Bir al-Sout and the Abu Sharshouh crossing other posts and points near the border.

US-backed militants withdrew to the al-Rushd refugee camp where they could hide from government forces attacks and airstrikes. According to pro-government sources, the Russian Aerospace Forces participated the SAA-led advance. This confirms that Moscow supports the Damascus willingness to regain control over its borders and to drive US-led coalition troops out from the occupied garrisons near At Tanf.

The control over the border will also decrease significantly arms and goods trafficking in which so-called US partner forces are deeply involved.

Daesh (ISIS) has been evacuating its members from the key town of Maadan in the southern Raqqah countryside, according to pro-government sources. 

In the eastern Hama countryside, the SAA recaptured Khara’eb al-Katna area, Mount Doyleb and Tal al-Mazrou from Daesh...(…Read More…)

The chairman of the Supreme Security Council of Iran, Ali Shamkhani, said that the airstrikes of the US-led coalition in Syrian Raqqa reduce security in the region and strengthen terrorism.

On Saturday, the Syrian news agency SANA reported with reference to the deputy head of the local Red Crescent branch that an international coalition led by the United States carried out an airstrike using phosphorous bombs on a hospital in Raqqa.

At a meeting with Syrian Prime Minister Imad Khamis in Tehran, Shamkhani accused Washington of violating human rights and stressed that the coalition operates in the country without the consent of the Syrian government or the UN mandate.

“Instead of fighting terrorist elements, Western countries and the US take suspicious measures in line with strengthening terrorism and worsening insecurity in the region”, the chairman of the Supreme Security Council of Iran, Ali Shamkhani, said, warning that the harmful effects of such moves “will lead to the spread of terrorism in the world”………………..

Russia’s SU-35 fighter jet demoralises U.S. pilots: Moscow is not intimidated by sanctions

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

In the USA, pilots are not allowed to watch videos of Su-35 demonstration flights at MAKS-2017 international air show. Allegedly, the videos of the Russian Su-35 aircraft in action may demoralise US pilots.

Russia has already received orders for Su-35 fighter jets from China, India, Indonesia, and other countries. The Russian Defence Ministry plans to buy about 90 of such planes. Russia currently takes the lead in the segment of heavy multipurpose fighters, and the launch of the Su-35 will only strengthen her position.

The flight and combat performance of the Su-35 makes this aircraft superior to all existing fourth generation fighters. What is more, the Su-35 is on par with fifth-generation aircraft. This is a state-of-the-art multipurpose fighter that ensures superiority in the air and effectively strikes ground and above-water targets.

In 2008, a simulated air combat involving Su-35 and US fighters F-22, F/A-18 Super Hornet and F-35 was conducted at US Air Force in Hikam (Hawaii Islands). The result was disappointing: in 20 air battles against the Su-35, the Americans scored just one victory.

The unsurpassed maneuverability, electronic and weapon systems of the Su-35 make this fighter the best among other comparable Western analogues, such as the F-15 Eagle.

Russia’s Military Is Not Stopped By US Sanctions.

Russian MoD: “Agreement reached on third Syrian de-escalation zone north of Homs” [Eng. subtitles]

(TURN ON ENG SUBS) ~ Representatives of the Russian Defense Ministry and the moderate Syrian opposition have reached an agreement on the third de-escalation zone north of the city of Homs, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said on Thursday.
“On July 31, a new round of talks between representatives of the Russian Defense Ministry and the moderate Syrian opposition was held in Cairo,” he said. “The meeting’s participants reached an agreement concerning the functioning of the third de-escalation zone north of the city of Homs, which will include 84 settlements with a population of more than 147,000,” Konashenkov added.
The general pointed out that in early July, during the fifth round of talks in Kazakhstan’s capital of Astana, a decision had been made to establish four de-escalation zones in Syria. Two of them – in southwest Syria and on the outskirts of Damascus (in Eastern Ghouta) – have already been set up.
A ceasefire in the third de-escalation zone will enter into force on August 3 starting from 12:00 p.m. local time, Konashenkov said.
“According to the reached agreement, today, on August 3, starting from 12:00 p.m. local time, armed units of the moderate opposition and government troops will cease fire from all weapons,” he said.
“I would like to emphasize that, just like in the two previously set up de-escalation zones, the ceasefire in the Homs de-escalation zone will not apply to members of the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra terror groups [both outlawed in Russia – TASS],” Konashenkov added. “Moreover, in accordance with the agreement, the moderate opposition has pledged to drive all the units joining the Islamic State and Jabhat al-Nusra out of the areas of the Homs Governorate that it controls,” the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman said.
According to him, starting from August 4, Russian military police will establish two check points along the line of contact north of Homs, as well as three observation posts. Konashenkov said that military police were entrusted with the tasks of separating the opposing sides, monitoring the implementation of the ceasefire and ensuring the unhindered delivery of humanitarian aid, as well as medical and casualty evacuation. “All the sick and wounded will be provided with an opportunity to undergo medical treatment either at the Russian military hospital or Syrian hospitals,” Konashenkov noted.

“The opposition, in turn, will unblock the section of the Homs-Hama highway passing through the de-escalation zone,” he added. According to the Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman, local councils will address the issues of everyday life in the de-escalation zone. Besides, a National Justice Committee is planned to be set up which will comprise “representatives of the opposition and all major ethnic, political and religious groups residing in the region,” the Russian general added.
“Russia will continue its efforts aimed at restoring peace in Syria,” Konashenkov said. He pointed out that in the past ten days, as many as 52 settlements had joined the ceasefire agreement, while Russia had carried out 41 humanitarian missions, providing more than 55 tonnes of food to Syrian civilians.

Close All U.S. Military Bases On Foreign Soil

This gallery contains 10 photos.

While the US sought to be an imperial force beginning just after the US Civil War and then escalated those efforts at the turn of the 20th Century, it became the dominant empire globally after World War II.

This was during the time of de-colonization, when many traditional empires were forced to let their colonies become independent nations.

So, while the US is the largest empire in world history, it is not a traditional empire in which nations are described as colonies of the US empire.

Nations remain independent, at least in name, while allowing US bases on their soil and serving as a client state of the United States.

They are controlled through the economic power of the US, World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

The US has used regime change tactics, including assassination and military force, to keep its empire intact.

U.S. foreign military bases are NOT in defense of U.S. national, or global security.

They are the military expression of U.S. intrusion in the lives of sovereign countries on behalf of the dominant financial, political, and military interests of the ruling elite.

Whether invited in or not by domestic interests that have agreed to be junior partners, no country, no peoples, no government, can claim to be able to make decisions totally in the interest of their people, with foreign troops on their soil representing interests antagonistic to the national purpose.

The United States is intentionally setting up bases in order block progress by the Syrian Army in the North and Southeast of the country.

The Syrian Army, assisted by Hezbollah units, has driven out Al-Nusra terrorists (recently renamed to Fatah al-Sham Front) from the eastern slopes of Mt. Kalamun near the Lebanese border and from parts of Jurud-Ersal district, a Syrian Army commander said.

The Syrian government troops and their allies owe their victory to the quick pace of the operation, excellent maneuverability and the terrorists’ poorly organized defense.

“It took us a mere 24 hours to crush the terrorists’ defense and flush them out,” the officer told Sputnik.

He added that the enemy had suffered heavy losses and could no longer control strategic routes of arms supplies from neighboring Lebanon.

Since the start of the antiterrorist operation in the area, the Syrian Army has recaptured 36 square kilometers (over 22 square miles) killing more than 70 militants.

The Syrian Army is conducting a five-pronged offensive in the Syrian desert in an effort to encircle the terrorists holed up in eastern Homs and liberate Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor……………………………….
