Russian intelligence has information on secret contacts between Turkey and the leadership of the Islamic State, according to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. During an interview with Russia’s Moskovsky Komsomolets daily Lavrov said:

“There’s information that the leadership of Daesh is continuing secret contacts with the Turkish leadership”.

“The Turkish leadership has completely lost its touch with the real world”.

“… indicators show that ISIS leaders are maintaining covert communication with Turkish officials to find alternatives for smuggling, particularly since Russian airstrikes have seriously limited their ability to use traditional smuggling methods”.

The Russian Minister noted that Saudi Arabia said it might send forces from the “alliance for combating Islamic terrorism” it created.

(Submitted by ‘The Old Sniper’) ~ TV Channel France 2 showed footage of Russian airstrikes in Syria as the work of the US-led international coalition in a fight against Daesh (ISIS).

While covering news from Syria and reporting about airstrikes against Daesh militants, France 2 showed footage first released by the Russian Defense Ministry.

Unlike the US-led airstrikes campaign, which doesn’t provide footage from their operations, the Russian Defense Ministry is always prompt to release video evidence showing what exactly happened to terrorists and how their operations unfolded.

Propaganda Alert: Losing the War, Blame Russia

(Finian Cunningham, SputnikNews) ~ Western politicians, media and the Turkish regime are full of it. The latest wave of refugees on the Syrian-Turkish border are, we are told, terrified civilians fleeing Russian air strikes.

No doubt civilians are caught up in this war. But many of those portrayed as refugees fleeing now from the northern city of Aleppo are actually retreating militants, who are capitulating because of Russian and Syrian military success in terminating their insurgency.

As ever distorting reality, the Western news media are transmitting a classic psychological operation in their coverage of the latest stage in what is actually the foreign-backed war of aggression on Syria.

Incredibly, Russia and the Syrian Arab Army are painted as the “bad guys”, and in turn this narrative is used to build a pretext for “responsibility to protect” – the faux humanitarian cover to allow for unwarranted foreign intervention.

It should be emphasized that these groups, which can be objectively defined as “terrorists”, have been trying to overthrow the elected government of Syria on behalf of foreign powers, including the US, Britain, France and their regional client regimes in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.

According to Syrian sources, most of those on the move out of Aleppo are fighters, who have taken their families with them. Those militants belong to the al-Qaeda-linked brigades of Jabhat al Nusra, Ahrar al Sham, Jaish al Fateh and even the notorious Daesh terror group.

A recent US intelligence report said that Daesh (also known as ISIL/Islamic State) is degrading.

Two coalitions – one led by the US and the other by Russia – have been involved in fighting the terrorists. It is high time to figure out some differences between the two approaches.

The Russian task force has supported the Syrian Arab Army, which numbers between 150,000 to 200,000 personnel.

According to military analysts, government forces have over 4,000 tanks (the Russian-made T-55, T-72 and the newest T-90A) and nearly 400 warplanes.

Russia began airstrikes in Syria on September 31, at the request of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

In the first 100 days of the operation, Russian jets carried out 5,600 combat sorties, with a daily average of 50-60.

During the same period, the US Air Force carried out nearly 3,500 sorties.

During the operation, US warplanes carried out a total of more than 65,000 sorties, with an average of 120 a day.

Saudi invasion of Syria: The bluff that could ignite World War III

By Finian Cunningham.

The Saudi plan to send ground troops into Syria appears to be just a ruse. But this is precisely the kind of reckless saber-rattling that could ignite an all-out war, one that could embroil the United States and Russia.

Saudi rulers have reportedly amassed a 150,000-strong army to invade Syria on the alleged pretext “to fight against terrorism” and to defeat the so-called Islamic State (also known as ISIS/ISIL). Saudi officials told CNN that in addition to Saudi troops there are ground forces from Egypt, Turkey, Sudan, Morocco, Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

Syria’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem gave a categorical response, saying the move would be seen as an act of aggression and that any invasion force regardless of its stated reasons for entering Syria will be sent back in “wooden coffins”… … …

… … …no Saudi soldier in his right mind truly supports the Saudi monarchy. Everyone in Saudi Arabia knows that the House of Saud has no legitimacy, is based solely on force and manipulation, propped up by the US and the UK, and – if it did not have so much money – is a joke, run by fools.”

Citizens of the world are being asked to dig deep for humanitarian aid to Syria. After five years of war and millions displaced there is an urgent need for the world to lend a hand, we are told.

At a so-called “donor conference” in London this week, British prime minister David Cameron appealed to the rest of the world to stump up $8 billion to help war-torn Syria.

Among the 60 nations attending the confab were the US, France, Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Cameron, Kerry and the rest of these charlatans should spare us the emotional blackmail. Most of the governments represented at the London conference are the very instigators and perpetrators of Syria’s destruction.

Those governments and individual politicians who oversaw regime change in Syria should be paying for their violations, either through massive financial reparations or in jail time. And why not both.

“The US government has conveyed the message to the Iraqi government through its diplomats that there is no need to Hashd al-Shaabi forces and their role should come to an end,” a senior Iraqi source said.

Meantime, the Iraqi volunteer forces have reacted to the leaked intel by warning against any regional and international attempts to put an end to their life and operation.

Both countries are committed to the removal of Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, and have grave doubts about the prospects for a political settlement of the crisis without further military pressure on Damascus. Saudi Arabia and Turkey set up a military coordination body a few weeks ago.

Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Saudi Arabia doesn’t have the guts to send its armed forces to Syria.

“They claim they will send troops (to Syria) but I don’t think they will dare do so. They have a classic army and history tells us such armies stand no chance in fighting irregular resistance forces,” Jafari told reporters in Tehran on Saturday.
“This will be like a coup de grâce for them. Apparently, they see no other way but this, and if this is the case, then their fate is sealed,” he added.

The siege, which was imposed by the two terrorist organizations of Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham among others, lasted for three and a half years, during which the locals showed “an unrelenting resilience and unshakable confidence in victory over the terrorists,” according to the source.

~~~ ~~~ ~~~
(Finian Cunningham) ~ Syrian state forces have every right to extirpate all illegally armed groups on the sovereign territory of Syria. While the Geneva negotiations were in process, the main foreign conduits of military supply to the mercenaries –Turkey and Saudi Arabia –had not desisted from their illegal interference in Syria. That was in flagrant violation of the United Nations Security Council resolutions in November and December calling for a global clampdown on terrorist organizations.

Not only were Turkey and Saudi Arabia continuing to supply illegally armed groups inside Syria, these two Western allies had included terrorist organizations into the so-called “opposition”at the Geneva talks. The grandly named High Negotiating Committee demanded it would only continue participating on the condition that the Assad government eventually stands down. That’s the real, proximate reason for breakdown, no matter what John Kerry might say.

Can you believe it? A bunch of foreign-backed and exiled-based terrorists dictating terms to the elected government of Syria. Their foot-soldiers are getting wiped out on the ground –after five years of inflicting destruction on Syria –and yet these impostors are attempting to write the “peace terms”… … …

The Syrian army broke the terrorists’ four-year-long siege of the Shiite-populated towns of Nubl and Al-Zahra in Northern Aleppo province a few minutes ago.

The siege of the strategic towns was removed after four years in an army offensive from the Eastern side of the two towns, while other units of the Syrian army also managed to purge terrorists from 80 percent of the village of Ma’arasa al-Khan.

Reports from Syria said on Wednesday evening that the Shiite residents of Seyede Zeinab region in Damascus, who have been under the terrorists’ continued missile and rocket attacks in the last several years, have poured to the streets to celebrate the army’s groundbreaking victory in Nubl and Al-Zahra. The last rocket attack on Seyede Zeinab region claimed tens of civilian lives only last week.

In addition to the significant advances of the Syrian government forces in the Eastern territories of Aleppo, the Syrian army and its allies were engaged in a heavy battle in the Northern and Northwestern parts of the province to remove the militants’ siege on the two towns.

Obviously, they’re trying to turn the tide in their favor on the battlefield,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said during a briefing in Moscow.

Zakharova said that Russia is concerned over Ankara’s increased military incursions into Syria, adding that “it cannot be ruled out that… fortifications [built by Turkey] along the Syrian-Turkish border may be used by militant groups as strongholds.

“While all parties involved pin their hopes on the start of a meaningful and… inclusive dialogue between the Syrian government and the opposition, external forces continue to help militants in Syria, including terrorist groups, providing them with arms and ammunition,” she stressed.

A series of blasts have struck the outskirts of Syria’s capital, Damascus.
At least 45 people (50, updated a few minutes ago), were killed in the mainly Shiite neighbourhood, Syria’s Interior Ministry reported. The Islamic State terrorist group has taken responsibility for the attacks.

Death toll from three terrorist bombings that rocked l-Sayyeda Zainab town in Damascus Countryside earlier on Sunday has climbed to 45 (50, updated a few minutes ago), a source at the Interior Ministry said.

The source earlier put the number of people killed in the attacks at 30, in addition to 110 injured, some of them were reported to be in critical condition.

The attacks, which hit in Koua Soudan area, were caused by a car bomb and two explosive belts, according to the source.

Terrorists detonated the car bomb at the bus station in Koua Soudan area, and after people gathered to help the injured, two suicide bombers with explosive belts blew themselves up at the site.

The aim of such terrorist and “cowardly” crimes is to raise the morale of the defeated terrorist organizations in light of the great victories made by the Syrian Arab Army in different areas.

Such terrorist crimes will not deter the Syrians from continuing the process of national reconciliation in different areas, particularly in Damascus countryside.

Terrorism-supporting states (Saudi, Turkey, Qatar, USA, UK, NATO countries) are responsible for these terrorist crimes.

Major Takfiri groups fighting in Syria are fractured more than anytime as they are struggling to close ranks in the face of army advances on various fronts, a report says.

Representatives of al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham, a Salafist movement with close ties to Turkey, met with fellow militant groups recently but failed to forge a united front, Reuters reported.

According to the report, Abu Mohamad al-Golani, the head of al-Nusra Front, tried to convince other Takfiri groups to join forces with the al-Qaeda wing in Syria but the effort fell flat.

The militant leader even said he would change his group’s name if Ahrar al-Sham agreed to reunite with them, but stressed that he would not renounce ties with the al-Qaeda terror organization.

The two extremist groups had briefly formed an alliance against the Syrian government along with a number of other militants last year, but they later split.

During the tense atmosphere of the meeting, which was held around 10 days ago, Golani accused Ahrar of spearheading “the agenda of Ankara in order to be part of a future political deal to rule Syria,” the report said… … …

Russian and Syrian Defense Ministers Expand Cooperation in War Against Terrorism

(By Ziad Fadel, SyrianPerspective) ~ When defense ministers meet face to face in Moscow, you know the subject is critical.

General Sergei Shoigu, the Russian Defense Minister, could have easily called his Syrian counterpart, Lt. General Fahd Jaasim Al-Furayj, and talked over the telephone or even on secure lines.

But, this subject demanded the highest level of secrecy in a world in which all conversations are vulnerable to eavesdropping.

General Shoigu is pushing the Syrian High Command to finish off Kinsibba as soon as possible despite weather delays and the grotesque geography of the area.

The third area of concern is a rapid deployment of new weapons systems the Syrians have not seen before and which, the Russians believe, will bring the battle more quickly to an end.

The SAA, however, has to be trained to use the new ground equipment and the 2 generals discussed the logistics of absorption and training.

We are looking at the start of a bigger war and the Russians wanted to make their position clear to the Syrian Army’s high command.

“The town of Sheikh Miskin is just one hour’s drive from Damascus,” correspondent Mikhail Alaeddin writes. “In every direction, one can enjoy the view of the snow-capped peaks of the Golan Heights…If not for the war, one could imagine this place as an option for a nice, quiet family holiday”.

“But today’s trip was not a tourist excursion. Sheikh Miskin is completely destroyed. Apart from the army, there is not a living soul here. Even animals seem to have abandoned this place.”

“Fierce battles for the city raged for 28 days. Twelve terrorist groups, including the famous al-Nusra Front and Daesh, forgot about their differences and united to try to keep control of the town at all costs.”

“It’s easy to understand the militants’ motivation,” Alaeddin explains. “The city sits at the intersection of government roads connecting Damascus, Daraa and Qunaitra. It is also the shortest and most convenient way to get supplies on the southern front. These same roads were used by terrorists, who shipped reinforcements and ammunition into the area from Jordanian territory.”

L’Armée Arabe Syrienne et ses Alliés poursuivent leur inexorable progression sur les champs de bataille

A quelques jours des négociations de Genève pour trouver une issue politique à la crise en Syrie -dont la tenue reste tributaire de la composition d’une délégation représentative des diverses oppositions-, l’Armée arabe syrienne et ses alliés poursuivent leur inexorable progression sur le terrain. Dimanche, ils ont reconquis Rabiha, dernier bastion terroriste à Lattaquié, et poursuivent leur avancée vers al-Bab, à l’est d’Alep, ainsi qu’à Cheikh Meskin, à Daraa, au Sud.

A la faveur d’une offensive fulgurante menée à partir de deux fronts, l’Armée arabe syrienne (AAS) et les Forces de défensenationale (FDN) ont reconquis, dimanche, Rabiha, dernier bastion des groupes terroristes dans la province de Lattaquié. La ville était défendue par des extrémistes islamistes turkmènes et des combattants du «Front al-Nosra», la branche syrienne d’«Al-Qaïda», qui se sont rapidement effondrés devant les coups de l’armée syrienne, appuyée par des frappes de l’aviation russe. Les survivants se sont enfuis vers la Turquie voisine, avant qu’Ankara ne décide de fermer sa frontière.

The delegation of the Syrian Arab Republic arrived in Geneva on Friday to participate in the Syrian-Syrian talks under the auspices of the United Nations. The delegation is scheduled to meet the UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura at 6:00 pm Damascus time.

The delegation which is headed by Syria’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari includes: Syria’s representative at the UN in Geneva Hussameddin Ala, Syrian Adviser to Foreign and Expatriates Minister Ahmad Arnous, Ahmad Kizbari, Mohamed Khair al-Akkam, Amal Yazigi, Hasan al-Bahri, Omar Ossi, Amjad Issa, Ammar Ersan, Jamila Shurbaji, Rafah Breidi, Elias Shahin, Samir Breidi, Osama Ali and Rouaa Shurbaji.

Russian President’s Special Representative for the Middle East and Africa, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov met a delegation of the Syrian national opposition in Moscow. The delegation included Elian Masaad, Secretary of the National Conference Party/A Secular Syria/ and official spokesman for the Syrian National Work Committee, Barwin Ibrahim, leader of the Syrian Youth for Development Party, sheikh Nawaf al-Milhem, General Secretary of the People’s Party and representative of the Syrian tribes and Tareq al-Ahmad, member of the leadership of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party.

HNC (High Negotiations Committee) represents a coalition of 15 “moderate” opposition (moderate cannibal terrorists) factions that were put together in Saudi Arabia last month. The group said earlier that it would not join the negotiations unless 1) Bashar Assad’s government abandoned sieges of settlements, 2) put a stop to air strikes, 3) release numerous captives (terrorists).

Despite the positive statements of De Mistura, if these are the premises, we do not believe that these meetings will produce anything good, while the only fields on which it is possible to solve the Syrian crisis are the battlefields and the direct reconciliations amongst people on Syrian soil.

Yemeni army forces backed by fighters from allied Popular Committees have wrested control of three military bases in Saudi Arabia’s southwestern region of Jizan as Riyadh presses ahead with its military campaign against its southern neighbor.

Yemeni forces established control over the strategic Jabal al-Doud, al-Aril and Madba’ bases in the border region.

The development came only hours after at least one Saudi and three Qatari troopers were killed in a retaliatory shelling attack by Yemeni army soldiers and allied forces against the al-Makhrouq military base in the kingdom’s southern region of Najran.

Yemen’s army forces, backed by Houthi Ansarullah fighters, also downed a Saudi fighter jet and destroyed a number of its gunboats.

Tracking War Criminals ~ Jeffrey Feltman and Volker Perthes, two significant puppets and actors in the shade, with German support have used and manipulated the U.N. in order to destroy Syria

(By Thierry Meyssan, Voltairenet ~ Submitted by ‘The Old Sniper’ )

The neo-conservatives and liberal hawks who have been preparing the war against Syria since 2001 have been relying on several states from the UNO and the Gulf Co-operation Council.

While we know about the role played by General David Petraeus in launching and pursuing the war until today, two personalities – Jeffrey Feltman (number 2 at the UNO) and Volker Perthes (Director of the main German think tank) – have remained in the shadows.

Together, with the support of Berlin, they have been using and are still manipulating the United Nations in order to destroy Syria.

In 2005, when Jeffrey Feltman – then the US ambassador in Beirut – supervised the assassination of Rafic Hariri, he relied on support from Germany, both for the assassination itself (Berlin supplied the weapon) [1], and for the UNO Commission charged with accusing Presidents el-Assad and Lahoud (prosecutor Detlev Mehlis, police commissioner Gerhard Lehmann and their team).

The international campaign against the two Presidents was notably led by the German political analyst Volker Perthes [2]… … …

During the annual meeting of the Bilderberg Group, between the 5th and the 8th June 2008 – five years before the war – Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice gave a presentation which underlined the necessity of overthrowing the Syrian government.

She was accompanied in this task by the Director of the Arab Reform Initiative [3], Bassma Kodmani (future founder of the Syrian National Council), and the Director of the SWP, Volker Perthes.

The Bilderberg Group is a NATO initiative, and NATO directly handles security for these meetings [4]… … …

Naked Truth: Geneva Talks Delay Exposes U.S. Terror Links

This article, written by Finian Cunningham, journalist for international affairs, editor and writer in the major news-media organisations for over 20 years, originally is appeared the first time the 25 of January 2016 on the ‘American Herald Tribune’.
We would like to propose it because is extremely truthfully and forthright: definitely not politically correct.
(SFP-WP)
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
(Finnian Cunnigham) ~ The main problem resides with the United States and Saudi Arabia both insisting that two militant groups should be part of the opposition to the Syrian government.

Those groups are Jaish al-Islam (Army of Islam) and Ahrar al-Shams (Nation of Syria).

Both are connected logistically and ideologically with Al Qaeda terror groups, including the so-called Islamic State.

The delay in the Geneva talks getting underway is because the Syrian government and its foreign ally, Russia, stipulate that neither Jaish al-Islam nor Ahrar al-Islam are allowed at the negotiating table.

Because they are terrorist organizations.

The purpose for their inclusion is to expedite Washington’s agenda of regime change in Syria, and has nothing to do with finding a genuinely peaceful settlement.

What the media should be saying is that the political talks on Syria are being held to ransom by the insistence of including terrorist groups in the negotiations.

And the people insisting on the terror groups partaking are Washington and its regional Arab allies.

That truth is far too grim to admit to public knowledge and discussion.

For such truth would indict Washington as a terror sponsor, answerable to international law.
