A Syrian official at the country’s oil industry announced that the Syrian Army troops have liberated over 40 oil wells in their anti-ISIL (Daesh, ISIS, IS) operations in Raqqa province in the last 30 days.

Ali Ibrahim said that the army men have since early June freed over 40 fixed oil pumps that had been destroyed by the ISIL before started retreat in Raqqa province.

He further added that after defusing landmines planted by the ISIL and reconstruction of the damaged oil pumps, most of the oil wells will start working normally and oil extraction will start soon.

The army men, deployed in Western Raqqa, launched a fresh round of operation a couple of das ago to move towards the last stronghold of ISIL in Eastern Homs that resulted in the liberation of 40 oil wells.

The army troops’ recent advances towards al-Sukhnah region have narrowed down the terrorist group’s oil exports.

According to a source, as the Syrian army’s Tiger Forces alongside other pro-government fighters started anti-terrorism operation to take back the strategic town of al-Sukhnah in Eastern Homs, the army soldiers managed to liberate half a dozen oil fields from ISIL militants which resulted in another major loss for the Takfiri terrorist group…………………………..

Russian Foreign Ministry warned of the political and military consequences of the US “manipulation” of the “militants” in Syria to achieve special geopolitical interests.

“Our position on the US overtures with the Syrian militants has been voiced repeatedly. This can lead to unpredictable military and political consequences,” the Russian Foreign Ministry’s deputy director of the Information and Press Department Artyom Kozhin said in a statement.

He underscored that Moscow had repeatedly pointed to Washington’s “indiscrimination over whom they are dealing with in Syria while pursuing their own geopolitical interests.”

Kozhin added that Moscow has not been officially informed of the United States government’s reported decision to end the CIA program to arm and train Syrian “opposition”.

“We also do not know anything about the state of similar programs that could be carried out by other US agencies. US intelligence does not report to us,” Kozhin said……………………………..

Turkish News reveals location of ten U.S. bases, troops in Syria

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Ever since the United States began openly arming and working with Kurdish fanatics in Syria under the guise of “fighting ISIS,” Turkey has shown signs of irritation, concern, and outright anger towards America. This is because the Turks fear any support given to Kurds from outside forces will embolden them to renew their fight for a Kurdistan entity carved out of Turkish territory. Indeed, Turkey is also concerned that any arming of the YPG/PYD forces in Syria will necessarily act as a conduit for weapons making their way to the PKK in Turkey. 

Indeed, in a meeting of the Turkish National Security Council on Monday, a statement was released alleging that weapons given by the U.S. to the YPG had found their way to PKK fighters. “This shows that both are the same organization,” the statement said. It also added that other countries were using a “double standard” for how the treat terror groups, a rather obvious reference to the United States and its position on Kurdish fighters. 

Thus, after a series of diplomatic spats, the relationship between Turkey and the United States has become more and more tense and less reliable than at other time during the course of the Syrian crisis with Turkey warming up to Russia on top of an icier relationship with the U.S. 

On Monday, however, Turkish papers released a bombshell article revealing the number and location of U.S. bases inside Syria, even listing the number of troops housed in each base. Only last week, I reported that a number of sources had put the number of U.S. bases in Syria as up to nine. The Turkish report raises the count of American bases to ten. 

The Turkish report also revealed the presence of French Special Forces…………………

Read on and we’ll tell you.
The media is abuzz with news that the Caliph of Cockadoodledoo is not dead, but alive, somewhere in Syria.  It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that that area in Syria will be where American forces and allies are operating.  After all, what could possibly be more dramatic than Donald Trump’s victory over the modern world’s eidos of evil, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdaadi.  His triumph will be greater than Obama’s when the former president basked onanistically in his own self-made glory after assassinating the malevolent, Usaamaa Bin Laadin.

I reported that Al-Baghdaadi was killed 1 year ago by the Syrian Air Force at Al-Mayaadeen.  I hold to my report and consider the issue closed.  It is my argument that the Saddamist Iraqi officers running ISIS are deliberately concealing his death the way the Taliban concealed the death of their leader, Mullah Umar.  If I am wrong, then, I will own up to it.  Yet, I can sense the vibrations of falsehood and deceit all around me.  Is it possible that the Caliph is the ultimate “one hit wonder”?  He has only been seen one time since his sleep-inducing speech at the Al-Noori Mosque in Mosul.

Isn’t it interesting how “sources” emanating from the Kurds in Iraq are trumpeting his rebirth.  Why, it would seem the Americans are planning to bomb Al-Raqqa and conveniently find that one of their bombs landed right on the cringing Caliph turning him into thousands of unidentifiable particles.  Pieces of his body will be flown to England or Germany where unnamed, anonymous, forensic specialists will be able to “confirm” the identity of this blackguard……………………………………….

The U.S. of America regime, in theory, have no international ‘title or mandate’ to sneak into Syria’s internal affairs, as in any other country in the area, but in practice they ‘do and disassemble’ as they like.

The game moves to the province of Deir ez-Zour and close to the Israeli border.

Men in power at the Pentagon have traced another line in the sand, an oblique line departing from the border with Turkey, which includes Raqqa, Deir ez-Zour and much of its province.

Washington now wants that the control of the territories of the dying Caliphate [east of that line] moves into the hands of their Kurdish allies……….

Meanwhile, 12 Syrian soldiers have been allegedly killed in Hamima village in the eastern Homs countryside as a result of an ISIS attack started with VBIED. ISIS also claimed that it destroyed two SAA tanks with ATGMs and captured a T-62 tank, a bulldozer, 23mm and 12.7mm guns and two Konkurs missiles. A fighting is ongoing in the area.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday said that he opposes the ceasefire deal in southern Syria brokered by the United States and Russia. The reason is that the agreement does not serve so-called Israeli interests. According to Netanyahu, the agreement perpetuates Iranian plans to set up a long-term presence on Israel’s northern border.

Russian Terminators Arrive In Syria

This gallery contains 1 photo.

Early July 2017 saw the release of photos showing a single BMPT-72 “Terminator” tank support combat vehicle in service with the Liva al-Quds Palestinian brigade serving with Syrian government forces.

So far there have been no indications the vehicle has seen combat use, and it also appears that the vehicle was sent to Syria mainly for combat evaluation rather than in response to any urgent tactical requirement.

The BMPT concept represents an answer to the need to provide a high volume of suppressive fire against enemy anti-tank guided weapons and static weapon emplacements such as machine-gun nests.

While modern infantry fighting vehicles are usually armed with automatic cannon which can fill that function, their inferior level of protection means they are hard-pressed to truly accompany tanks and are instead forced to provide overwatch fire with anti-tank guided missiles which limits their ability to use their cannon.

A senior Iranian official [the Iranian Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani] has warned that the Zionist lobby is carrying out widespread activities to steer the political and security equations in the region toward undermining the legal Syrian government.

In a meeting with Russia’s special envoy on Syria, Alexander Lavrentiev, in Tehran on Saturday, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani said all sides involved in the Syrian crisis must respect the country’s national sovereignty.

“Any agreement must not undermine this unchangeable principle or prepare the ground for Syria’s breakup,” he added.

“The Zionist regime [of Israel] forms deep and extensive bonds with terrorist groups and their sponsors and seeks to make use of these groups as an instrument to allegedly secure Israel’s borders and to continue with the suppression of the oppressed Palestinian people,” he said.

The SNSC secretary described as “unacceptable and worrisome” moves by certain terrorist elements to take advantage of political talks and ceasefire to recover.

“These elements are not committed to any agreement or deal and will use any opportunity to kill innocent people and pursue their own inhumane objectives,” Shamkhani said………………………….

I said the main consideration, the immediate consideration is humane”. Halevy also says he would not support the treatment of wounded Hezbollah fighters because Israel had been targeted by Hezbollah, but “not specifically targeted by al-Qaeda”…

After his recovery he went straight back to the place where he almost lost his life and resumed his work as a war reporter. He says his job is like an addiction, but his main purpose is to convey the truth of what is happening on the frontlines.
  • Yara Saleh and her TV crew were abducted and held for ransom. One of Yara’s colleagues was executed. Kept in a basement, beaten and threatened, the remaining three crew members barely escaped with their lives when their captors were confronted by the Syrian Army. Despite this horrific experience, Yara continues working as a TV reporter.

She is acutely aware of the perilous nature of her work, but says her job is her way of helping the country she loves.
  • Every day Syrian war reporters witness the deaths of soldiers, civilians and their own colleagues. Yet, every day they go to work to cover suicide bombings, conflict and military operations. They rely on luck or God to keep them safe, but what really keeps them going is the belief that they are assisting their beloved Motherland at a very difficult time.

In letters to the UN Secretary General and the Head of the Security Council, the Ministry said that the Israeli entity has recently issued new resolutions related to holding elections of the so-called local councils in the villages of the occupied Syrian Golan according to Israeli law.

The Ministry pointed out that these Israeli actions come as no surprise because Israel has been investing in the crisis in Syria through its support to the armed terrorist groups which was clear since the beginning of the events in Syria.

Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad affirmed that the accusations, claims and lies about the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government aim at defaming the Syrian Arab Republic in front of the international public opinion and finding justifications that serve the Zionist entity and its interests in the region, in addition to prolonging the crisis especially after the achievements made by the Syrian Arab Army and its allies in the war on terrorism.

“I affirm in the name of the Syrian Arab Republic that Syria disposed of its chemical program completely. There are no longer any chemical weapons in Syria, or any toxic chemical materials or gases that could be used in military operations,” said Mikdad.

Mikdad affirmed that the second purpose of the US immoral, aggressive, and bloody act was to prevent Syria from achieving any victory over terrorism because the US and its agents in the region have invested in terrorism as any merchant who invests his money in building facilities to increase his income.

“We formed a Syrian investigation committee and the report of the committee is there in colored pictures which were submitted to us by our citizens in Khan Sheikhoun who saw and knew this game and that there was no use of any Sarin gas by the Syrian government and that it was the terrorist groups who used this gas to justify their low logic which comes in the framework of the campaign against Syria,” Mikdad said…………………..

The U.S.- led coalition committed a new massacre against the Syrian people in which nine civilians were killed by an airstrike in the village of Kishkish Ziyanat in the southern countryside of Hasakah.

According to local media sources, the aircraft of the U.S.-led “International Alliance”, alleged on the pretext of fighting the “Da’ash” terrorist, attacked the village of Khashkash Zyanat (15 km south of the city of Shaddadi) in the southern countryside of Hasaka, causing the deaths of 9 civilians and damage to homes and properties.

The U.S. coalition last week committed 3 massacres against the Syrians by attacking the village of Dablan, the town of Al-Mayadeen and the town of Deir el-Zour, in which were killed more than 90 civilians, mostly children and women.

The International Alliance also used internationally banned white phosphorus bombs during previous attacks killing dozens of civilians.

Washington, which has formed the “international coalition” outside international law and without the Security Council’s approval since 2014, claims to be fighting international terrorism in Syria, while the facts confirm that Washington is attacking and destroys Syrian infrastructures and committing massacres against civilians………………….

Representatives from Iran, Russia, and Turkey have started Syria ceasefire talks in the Kazakh capital, Astana. Both the Syrian government and the opposition have sent delegations to Astana. U.S. and Jordanian representatives will be monitoring the process. The United Nations Security Council has already voiced support for a Syrian-led, Syrian-owned political process. Syria’s warring factions have held four rounds of negotiations in Kazakhstan since January in parallel to the UN-mediated peace talks in Switzerland. During last month’s talks in Astana, Iran, Russia, and Turkey agreed on establishing de-escalation zones in Syria’s mainly militant-held areas. The deal, which came into force on May the fifth, called for the cessation of hostilities between Syria’s warring factions.

Earlier this week, the White House claimed that the Syrian government was conducting “potential preparations” for a chemical weapons attack. The statement warned that if Damascus conducted a chemical attack Syrian President Bashar Assad and his military “will pay a heavy price.”
In addition, US President Donald Trump had a phone call with French leader Emmanuel Macron, in which the two leaders agreed to work together to find s response in case of a new chemical incident in Syria.
The French president said that Paris could launch unilateral air strikes against targets in Syria if a new chemical attack is carried out.
Moreover, British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon stated that London will support any retaliation by the United States for the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
In response, Damascus dismissed the allegations, calling them “misleading, false and baseless.”
“In terms of international law, this is political pressure over Damascus. It is in response to Syrian Army’s advances in eastern Syria. Washington’s accusations are a lie,” al Akkam told Sputnik Arabic.
“If the coalition continues to push with the issue of chemical weapons to justify its aggression against Syria, Damascus in coordination with Russia and Iran will deliver an unexpected response to this aggression,” al Akkam concluded………………………….

Did you know that on July 3rd 1988, a US warship downed an Iranian plane and killed 290 passengers onboard?

Iran is commemorating the 29th anniversary of the downing of its passenger plane by a US Navy guided-missile cruiser in the Persian Gulf waters in 1988.

The civilian aircraft, an Airbus A300B2, was flying in Iranian airspace over the Strait of Hormuz from the port city of Bandar Abbas to Dubai, carrying 274 passengers and 16 crew members on July 3, 1988, when USS Vincennes fired two SM-2MR surface-to-air missiles at it.

One of the missiles hit the plane, killing all the 290 onboard.

On Monday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement to commemorate the victims and once again censure the US Navy’s “horrific crime.”
