First time US-coalition planes hit Syrian troops

THE ONLY MODERATE FIGHTERS ON THE GROUND IN SYRIA ARE THE SOLDIERS OF THE SYRIAN ARAB ARMY WHO ARE LEGITIMATELY FIGHTING FOR THE FREEDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY OF THEIR COUNTRY. (SFP-WP Editor)

This act of war means only one thing: that the alliance led by the US does not fight against the Daesh terrorists, but it supports and defends them, in a time when the terrorist gangs are undergoing tough losses on the ground, at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army and of the Russian and Syrian Air Forces.

Foreign Ministry condemns U.S.-led coalition’s airstrike against Syrian Arab army post in Deir Ezzor Province

(Damascus) ~ Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said that four U.S.- led coalition warplanes targeted with 9 rockets one of the Syrian army’s posts in Deir Ezzor province, claiming the lives of 3 soldiers and injuring 13 others in addition to destroying three armored vehicles, four military vehicles, 23 mm machinegun, 14.5 machinegun and a depot of arms and ammunition.



In two identical letters addressed to the UN Secretary General and Chairman of the UN Security Council on Monday, the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry stressed that the Syrian Arab Republic strongly condemns this heinous aggression by the coalition and affirms that it contradicts with the goals and wills of the UN Charter.

Syria called on the Security Council to immediately take the urgent measures to prevent such aggression from occurring again, adding that the aggression on the military post hinders the efforts aiming to fight terrorism and reiterates that the U.S.- led coalition lacks seriousness and credibility in the fight against terrorism.

Syria slams US-led coalition deadly strike against troops as ‘act of aggression’

Damascus has labelled as an “act of aggression” the US-led coalition’s missile strike which killed three Syrian soldiers at an army base in the Deir ez Zor province.

On top of the fatalities, 13 personnel were injured and a number of military vehicles were destroyed when warplanes fired nine missiles at the Saeqa military camp.

The incident is the first of its kind since the coalition started to bomb Syrian territory more than a year ago, though the US-led alliance continues to deny it carried out the airstrike.

“Syria strongly condemns the act of aggression by the US-led coalition that contradicts the UN Charter on goals and principles. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has sent letters to the UN Secretary General and the UN Security Council,” Syria’s SANA news agency quoted the country’s foreign ministry as saying.

Coalition spokesman Colonel Steve Warren has insisted, however, that the only airstrikes in the area were delivered some 55km away.

“We’ve seen those Syrian reports but we did not conduct any strikes in that part of Deir ez Zor yesterday. So we see no evidence,” he said.

The Deir ez Zor province is situated in eastern Syria, and is largely controlled by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). The region is of significant strategic importance to the terrorist group, as it contains a number of oilfields, which are a major source of revenue for IS.

On November 24 a Turkish Air Force F-16 jet shot down a Russian Su-24 bomber over Syria. Ankara claims the Russian plane briefly crossed into Turkish airspace. One of the Russian pilots was killed by Syrian rebels as he ejected from the stricken plane, while the other was rescued in a swift operation during which one Russian serviceman was killed.

The downing of the bomber by Turkey came after a successful Russian bombing campaign against ISIS oil infrastructure on the Syria-Turkish border, and was seen as revenge. Putin described the act as “a stab in the back” and accused Erdogan of benefiting from the illegal oil trade with IS and financing the terrorists.

Russia has been conducting airstrikes targeting IS and other terrorist groups in Syria since September 30. The strikes were launched after a formal request from Damascus. Russian jets have been carrying out sorties from Moscow’s Khmeimim Air Base in Latakia.

The US-led coalition’s airstrikes in Syria are in fact illegal, as it has never received permission from Syrian President Bashar Assad to enter the country’s airspace. In response to the UK’s decision to join the bombing campaign in Syria, Assad reiterated in an interview with the Sunday Times that the presence of Britain in Syria is unlawful as neither Damascus nor the United Nations have given London the green light to bomb Syrian territory.

“It will be harmful and illegal and it will support terrorism, as happened after the coalition started its operation a year or so [ago], because this is like a cancer,” Assad said.

Exclusive: Cameron Orders Attack on Syrian Army, Retaliation for Assad Statements

By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor on December 7, 2015

UK-harrier

Veterans Today has just learned that today’s air attack on the Syrian Army base near Der Ezzor, was ordered by British Prime Minister Cameron in retaliation for criticism of British efforts by Syrian President Assad in an interview published in the London Times Yesterday.

The US has denied all knowledge of the attack though American AWAC aircraft supervise and plan all “coalition” air strikes.

The full text of the interview that Cameron told his defense officials was an “act of war on Britain.”  Reports from sources in the MOD in Britain say that the attack was planned to look like a “medium friendly fire” accident with orders “make it look like an accident but don’t try too hard, Syria can’t do anything about it anyway.”

If only we were making this up.
