>Erdogan’s chief adviser calls for Turkey’s NATO membership to be reconsidered – local media

>It is time to reconsider the issue of Turkey’s membership in NATO, Erdogan’s chief adviser, Yalcın Topcu, has stated, according to local media. Turkey has the second largest army in the alliance after the United States.

>“The presence of the great Turkish nation in this institution [NATO] has become questionable,” Topcu said, branding the alliance’s behavior towards Ankara as “brutal and dishonorable,” Haberturk daily reported.

Spoke about this many times. For now they're just signaling that leaving NATO is under serious consideration. If Erdogan himself comes out publicly to say the same thing it will be pretty serious. Given all the retarded PR coming out of the State Dept. and the Pentagon (muh F-35), who knows how the US will react.

Not sure if i would say they are seriously considering it but Erdogan is certainly taunting NATO and openly pushing for his own initiatives even against NATO's wishes, the issue is that Turkey due to its geographic location and control of the Bosporus strait(only way in/out of the black sea) makes Turkey far more valuable to NATO than NATO is valuable to Turkey regarding internal politics.

However Turkey letting Russia use its airspace is a pretty big development and unexpected, obviously there is some significant back room negotiations happening between Russia and Turkey.

>How exactly does the desert territory work?

By being a vast area of barren territory

>Is it full of bases and camps?

Opposite, urban areas are full of bases and camps

There might be a few militant held locations or fortified areas but the vast majority of desert territory is simply empty desert that is hard to fully clear due to the vast amount of size and sparse rural outposts, it takes a large number of personnel to occupy the territory and fully remove all insurgents so it isn't a priority when there are more urban held areas that are more of a threat

The "moderate rebels" in the green part have a base at the border with US support and a refugee camp. They get their food and munition through Jordan. They don't really have anything else of value.

They have some outposts and some people always driving from one outpost to another to give them supplies. When some attack happens, they just call for help and hold it long enough until support arrives. Or they back up slowly, till they reach some point where the attacker can't go forward without major effort (like if it takes too long and they have to stay overnight in some open field or something) and just wait until the attacker is going back again, because it's hard or just not very useful for them to hold the area they took (holding some open desert is just a waste of supplies and manpower).

And the ISIS area is just like that because ISIS is holding some villages at the Euphrates and they are still holding 2 bases near T3. Hoholmap just connected those points with the area. It doesn't have anything to do with reality it is just an empty area with no military presence, because it would be just a stupid waste of resources.

You can see it better on the wikipedia map. Bases and outposts are marked with points and you see that there really is nobody in the area you marked.

On the map it looks like those 2 points are just some small oil pumping stations.

One or two pumpjacks and a small hut on its side. Maybe there isn't even any ISIS fighter there.

How would they even survive there without water? ISIS won't be that stupid and drive through the whole desert a few times a week just to to deliver supplies to hold a pumpjack that is pumping oil right into Assad controlled area.

If they do this, then it is the right thing not to attack them. Because they are wasting their resources for a hut in the desert while their whole area at the Euphrates is falling apart.

Most likely ISIS destroyed parts of the small oil wells and left. The SAA can't start to repair them yet, because it would be some nice target for a suicide jihadi. So they don't care about them.

And as long as there is no "official" report about taking them, the isis loving fags from hoholmap will assume that it is under ISIS control and will paint it in ISIS colors.

>How wishful thinking am I to hope the SAA to go full berserker on the SDF one day?

It may happen, but it would have to be after the US pulls most of its troops out, also the PMUs could possibly try and push them back and there would be less political fallout due to the PMUs being an Iraqi group and more of less begrudgingly supported by the US

I have to say though that Trump announcing he will stop providing arms to the YPG in Syria and related Kurdish groups at the behest of Erdogan is surprising and shows that US support for the Syrian K*rds isn't guaranteed and things can certainly change with the right political pressure.

https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/11/24/566377916/turkey-says-trump-promises-to-stop-arming-K*rds-in-syria

Also the US announcing there are closer to 2000 troops in Syria instead of the around 500 previously reported likely means the vehicles recently transferred to Kurdish areas were not meant to be operated by the K*rds.

Yeah I saw that earlier - got my attention. Erdogan did put considerable pressure in the last few months and there's certainly other factors at play. Given the track record of western intelligence agencies in the region, I'll do what I usually do and take the "wait and see" approach on this. Also look forward to Israel reacting negatively if they haven't already.

Speaking of Israel, this might surprise some people (or not) but it would seem they're still using the "Trump isn't pro-Israel enough" narrative (it's never enough with them). The latest "story" on this narrative is how Trump (supposedly) revealed details of an Israeli operation in Raqqa to Lavrov. Fits in with the Russia narrative as well. Given the location, I thought I'd mention it here.

Western/Turk-backed terror group back in the (real) news and Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is really unhappy about it.

>Swiss Press Club gives floor to White Helmets’ critics, despite Reporters Without Borders pressure

>The Western media can’t admit they were wrong in their portrayal of the White Helmets, Guy Mettan, head of the Swiss Press Club, told RT, explaining why Reporters Without Borders demanded to cancel the club’s press conference featuring critics of the controversial Syrian group.

Ali Abdullah Saleh, the former pro-Houthi president of Yemen has apparently switched sides which is concerning, however it looks like the Houthis have taken total power and killed/disarmed most militias loyal to him in the last 8-12 hours. Not the normal expected development by any means and smells of Saudi money/influence, Saleh was always largely moderate and open to negotiations when president, which is also why the Saudis wanting him deposed and attacking Yemen was incredibly stupid when he was not opposed to the Saudis and not attacking them but simply friendly to the Houthis.

This stuff going on with Saleh reminds me of what happened with the lebanese ex-PM. Im wondering how the Saudis exert so much control over these important figures. It can't be just money, nobody would switch sides in a city surrounded by people who would kill him if he did for any amount of money.

https://twitter.com/ejmalrai/status/938142025765064704

Yemen isn't strategically valuable or important to Russia so i wouldn't see Putin being too concerned about them but they certainly aren't friends of the Saudis either, there's always a chance they tipped off Iran about the Saudi plans as well which would explain why the Houthis chose that time to demonstrate. I wouldn't call it a failure/setback for Russia either, more like an unexpected if Putin wasn't just leading on the Saudis bonus

>“Germany can no longer simply react to US policy but must establish its own position… even after Trump leaves the White House, relations with the US will never be the same,” Gabriel is cited as saying.

>Gabriel accused the US of “no longer see(ing) the world as a global community, but as a fighting arena where everyone has to seek their own advantage. He noted that Europe has to step up to the plate and more strictly define its interests in order to be a major global player.

>“We have to describe our own positions and, if necessary, draw red lines” which would be “based on our own interests,” he said, according to the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

>Gabriel said that although the US will remain Europe’s closest ally, differences with Washington need to be addressed and dealt with in strict terms, AP reported. He cited controversial moves by Washington, including sanctions on Russia which threaten European energy companies, and the increased risk of war if the Iran nuclear deal – dubbed the “worst deal ever negotiated” by Trump – collapses. He also noted the possibility of conflict in the Middle East if Trump recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

I don't see how him recognizing Jerusalem changes things all that much. Sure it's gonna throw more fuel onto the fire but even if he didn't do it, the same sort of conflicts would still be happening. Unless for some reason there is a hidden group somewhere that will start a war just for that recognition of Jerusalem.

>Sure it's gonna throw more fuel onto the fire but even if he didn't do it, the same sort of conflicts would still be happening.

I don't see it causing any kind of immediate large war/conflict but mainly the issue is that its getting the US deeper involved in Israeli politics and more likely to enter in a conflict if Israel does. Also the r/the_zognald cucks are on overdrive trying to shill it as 4d chess and acting as if the US wont follow Israel into a war if there is one, which is naive at best.

> Unless for some reason there is a hidden group somewhere that will start a war just for that recognition of Jerusalem.

Not really, Iraq, Iran, Syria and Lebanon predictably denounced the US moving its embassy and rejected any decision about Jerusalem being the Israeli capital, the only surprising political move is Erdogan/Turkey saying they will cut ties with Israel. Turkey cutting ties with Israel if true might be significant because there is a long range radar station that Israel relies on for early warning systems over Iranian airspace in Turkey, Turkey has recently said they will shut it down and deny Israel access which would blind Israeli early warning missile defenses, Israel would likely have to strike a deal with Saudi Arabia or Qatar if it wants coverage of Iran

Some interesting Russian paintings about the Syrian civil war

https://rus77-79.livejournal.com/4076773.html

Pic related (2nd pic) is a modern remake of the painting "Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks" (first pic), pretty symbolic politically as well

>Reply of the Zaporozhian Cossacks to Sultan Mehmed IV of the Ottoman Empire, also known as Cossacks of Saporog Are Drafting a Manifesto, is a painting by Russian[1] artist Ilya Repin. The 2.03 m (6 foot 7 inch) by 3.58 m (11 foot 9 inch) canvas was started in 1880 and finished in 1891.

>According to the story, the Zaporozhian Cossacks (from 'beyond the rapids', Ukrainian: za porohamy), inhabiting the lands around the lower Dnieper River in Ukraine, had defeated Ottoman Empire forces in battle. However, Mehmed demanded that the Cossacks submit to Turkish rule. The Cossacks, led by Ivan Sirko, replied in an uncharacteristic manner: they wrote a letter, replete with insults and profanities. The painting exhibits the Cossacks' pleasure at striving to come up with ever more base vulgarities. During Repin's time, the Cossacks enjoyed great popular sympathy.

>Zaporozhian Cossacks to the Turkish Sultan!

>O sultan, Turkish devil and damned devil's kith and kin, secretary to Lucifer himself. What the devil kind of knight are thou, that canst not slay a hedgehog with your naked arse? The devil shits, and your army eats. Thou shalt not, thou son of a whore, make subjects of Christian sons; we have no fear of your army, by land and by sea we will battle with thee, fuck thy mother. Thou Babylonian scullion, Macedonian wheelwright, brewer of Jerusalem, goat-fucker of Alexandria, swineherd of Greater and Lesser Egypt, pig of Armenia, Podolian thief, catamite of Tartary, hangman of Kamyanets, and fool of all the world and underworld, an idiot before God, grandson of the Serpent, and the crick in our dick. Pig's snout, mare's arse, slaughterhouse cur, unchristened brow, screw thine own mother! So the Zaporozhians declare, you lowlife. You won't even be herding pigs for the Christians. Now we'll conclude, for we don't know the date and don't own a calendar; the moon's in the sky, the year with the Lord, the day's the same over here as it is over there; for this kiss our arse!

>25 injured in Israeli strike on Gaza after rocket attacks (more to come)

>At least 25 Palestinians, including six children, have been wounded after the Israeli Air Force bombed alleged Hamas targets inside Gaza. The IDF says the airstrikes were in retaliation for 3 rocket attacks launched from the enclave into Israeli territory.

The Israel-first white house policy is on display for the world to see yet again. Most Americans didn't want this but since it was a (((bipartisan effort))), no one has the right to complain. Now let's talk about some of the potential positive aspects.

1- Any peace process will not have significant US involvement (total lack of credibility).

2- Thanks to the incompetence and total arrogance of certain countries, Iran has gained a ton of credibility over the last few years. This latest zionist "chess move" will also make Iran stronger.

3- It will expose once more the pro-Israeli position taken by the governments of Jordan, Egypt and other countries.

>Putin to visit Turkey on Monday for talks with Erdogan on Mid-East, Syria

>Russian President Vladimir Putin will make a working visit to Turkey on December 11, the Kremlin’s press service said Friday. Bilateral issues and international problems will be discussed at the talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, including the situation in the Middle East and the Syrian settlement, TASS said. On Thursday, Putin and Erdogan spoke by phone and expressed serious concern in connection with the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

This was entirely predictable given the Afghanistan speech by Trump. Pakistan has a very good relationship with China so expect them to cooperate even more on defense projects, energy and trade. I know some will probably laugh about the space program part, but competing with India is pretty serious business over there. They'll have the Chinese and possibly Russians help so years from now, they could end up with a decent program.

>1- Any peace process will not have significant US involvement (total lack of credibility).

Nobody will look at the US as credible (except Israel/Saudis) but the US will surely try and insert itself into Israeli/Palestinian politics anyway due to world police syndrome, US-Israeli involvement is certainly becoming more disdained though

> Pakistan has a very good relationship with China so expect them to cooperate even more on defense projects, energy and trade.

Pakistan certainly has a good relationship to China, until recently China and the US were their source for nearly all weapons/equipment since Russia had a weapons embargo due to close relations with India

We'll see how far they act out against the US or strike any drones, but i suspect its just rhetoric for their nationalist fan base and they aren't willing to seriously damage ties with the US, which have been historically close

https://archive.fo/XZurX

>SOT, Vladimir Putin, Russian President (Russian): “Syria has been saved as a sovereign and independent state. Refugees are returning to their homes. The conditions for the political settlement [of the conflict] have been created under the auspices of the United Nations. In accordance with the international agreements, the Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties continues to operate in Syria. Two [military] bases will be operating on a permanent basis in Tartus and Khmeimim. If terrorists raise their heads again, we will carry out such strikes on them which they have never seen. In just over two years, the Russian armed forces, together with the Syrian army, defeated one of the most capable groups of international terrorists. Therefore, I have made a decision - a significant part of the Russian troop contingent located in Syria is returning home to Russia. You are returning to your homes, families, parents, wives, children and friends, with victory. I order the defence minister and the chief of general staff to start withdrawing the Russian troops to their permanent bases. Your homeland is awaiting you. Farewell, my friends. Thank you for your service.”

You could say that. I don't even get involved in any Syria-related discussions over there unless something major happens and (((anons))) spread (((think-tanks))) talking points.

I could use TOR but I've had enough of all the bullshit. If I was a few years younger, I'd see things differently but I have less patience now. Going back to 2014 moderation would require a change in ownership of 8ch and 4chan is not an option. So better get /comfy/ on this board while it's still relatively unknown.

Let me just clarify: I'm not trying to discourage anyone. If /sg/ wants to keep triggering the current mods on /pol/ I'm fine with that. I was there in the last thread when it all went to shit and got banned a few times. I still don't think it was a mistake to use a modified Houthi slogan in the OP.

>Kurdish offensive against Syrian Army produces embarrassing results

>BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has driven back an assault by Coalition-backed Kurdish-led militias that was unleashed against its forces at a key town in the east Syrian province of Deir Ezzor.

>According to pro-government sources, Thursday morning witnessed pro-Coalition militias operating under the Syrian Democratic Forces alliance attack units of the Syrian Arab Army on the east Euphrates shore.

>The Kurdish-led assault was delivered against the government-held town Khasham.

>After hours of firefights, the Syrian Army managed to repel the attack, killing and capturing at least 12 pro-Coalition militants.

>Many questions arise from this event. At the present time no information exists on what inspired Coalition-led fighters to so suddenly attack Syrian pro-government forces.

>Several days ago, Al-Masdar News reported that Syrian army-led forces were withdrawing from Khasham in order to surrender it to pro-Coalition militias. In the event, it has become apparent that Syrian troops did not retreat from the town.

>Based on this, it is possible that the contested nature of Khasham itself served as the pretext for the escalation that has been witnessed today.

These claims are not yet confirmed by any official sources.

>One day earlier, units of the SDF’s Deir Ezzor Military Council (DMC) attacked SAA oppositions in the village Khasham north of al-Busayrah, acceding to Syrian local sources. The sources revealed on December 21 that twelve fighters of the SDF were killed during the failed attack.

Russia is enlarging the Tartous naval base to be able to hold and service nuclear powered ships, also Syria signed a 49 year rent-free lease with Russia for Russian use of the Syrian naval base and air bases

https://www.rt.com/news/414261-russia-permament-bases-syria-nuclear/

>The bases in Tartus and Khmeimim are among a handful of military installations Russia has in foreign nations. Earlier this year, Russia and Syria finalized an agreement regulating the presence of Russian troops in Syria. Khmeimim Airbase, located near Latakia, and the naval site in the port city of Tartus have both been handed over to Russia for 49 years lease-free, and with a condition of automatic extension unless either country chooses to terminate the deal. The Russian parliament ratified the Khmeimim deal in July and the Tartus deal on Tuesday.

>The Russian Navy, however, reportedly intends to expand the facility significantly. Under the agreement with Syria, the future base would be allowed to host up to 11 Russian warships, including those with a nuclear power plant. At the moment there is only one Russian nuclear-propelled military surface ship, the 24,000-ton battlecruiser ‘Pyotr Velikiy’, although Russia will soon have a nuclear icebreaker – albeit which is unlikely to be given a mission in the Mediterranean – while a brand new Lider-class destroyer project is at the design stage.

> Fighters from US-backed SDF describe unimpeded ISIS exodus from Raqqa on their watch

https://www.rt.com/news/414446-isis-raqqa-exodus-details/

>RT’s Ruptly video news agency has spoken with SDF fighters in Syria, who confirmed for the first time that Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) militants freely left Raqqa in what was previously described by a BBC investigative report as an IS “exodus.” The SDF fighters were on watch when they witnessed and filmed heavy trucks, buses and cars carrying IS militants from the liberated city.

>“We saw them with our own eyes. I was on shift at the grain containers turnabout when IS were leaving. There were many of them, we were not afraid of them,” one SDF fighter told Ruptly in late November. He showed the footage featuring the convoy on his mobile phone, saying that he had recorded it and kept it.

>“I saw IS, they left with locomotives and buses, they took their luggage and headed towards Rumelan,” another SDF fighter said. “They carried on till Deir [ez-Zor]. I don’t know where they headed to after that, whether to Abu-Kamal or to Mayadeen, they took that road."

>He added there were about 1,000 injured IS fighters and about 2,000 who seemed unhurt.

>In November, the BBC reported that a “secret deal” between the US and British-led coalition and the Kurdish forces allowed hundreds of IS terrorists to leave Raqqa peacefully in a long convoy comprised of up to 50 trucks, more than a dozen buses and around 100 other vehicles. Initially neither the coalition nor the Kurdish forces admitted their part in giving free passage to the terrorists. However, Col Ryan Dillon, spokesman for Operation Inherent Resolve, later said the deal was never a secret, confirming Washington accepted the agreement.

>On Thursday, Israeli Channel 10 reported that Washington and Tel Aviv signed a strategy and policy document on Tehran, following discussions between Israeli and US intelligence and defense agencies on December 12. The talks were said to have been headed by the US national security adviser, H. R. McMaster and his Israeli counterpart Meir Ben-Shabbat.

>Specifically, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and president Trump agreed behind closed doors to set up joint teams to handle what they both believe amounts to an ‘Iranian threat.’

>Four separate teams would be reportedly be set up to curtail Iranian power. The first would deal with “Iranian activity in Syria and Tehran’s support for the Hezbollah terror organization.” Another division will oversee “diplomatic and intelligence activities” aimed to confront Iran’s nuclear weapon “ambitions.”

>A third group would monitor Iran’s ballistic missile program and its purported efforts to build “accurate missile systems” in Syria and Lebanon. Finally, a fourth unit would keep tabs on groundwork for any escalation by Iran and/or Hezbollah.

>US abusing UN Security Council to interfere in Iran's internal affairs – Russia

https://www.rt.com/news/415116-un-security-council-iran-abuse/

https://archive.fo/RPfJR

This meeting was completely unnecessary. Zogbot Haley had to leave the room because of how triggered she got. The Russian ambassador completely destroyed her and the attempt by the UK envoy* to use a jewish interpretation of article 34 to argue the meeting was in compliance with the UN chapter. China, Sweden and others voiced similar positions on the need for the meeting. France insisted this is something only Iranians can solve.

Russia:

>“You are dispersing the energy of the Security Council, instead of focusing it on dealing with key crisis situations in Afghanistan, Syria Libya, Iraq, Yemen, DPRK, the African continent. Instead of that, you are proposing that we interfere in the internal affairs of a state.”

>"We don't want to get involved in destabilizing Iran or any other country."

>This meeting undermines the credibility/authority of the UNSC.

>Do you have any other diplomatic means besides sanctions at your disposal?

Iran:

>“The real reason for convening today's meaning is not an attempt to protect human rights or promote the interests of the Iranian people, but rather a veiled attempt to seize the current moment to continue to undermine the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). We consider it unacceptable to intentionally undermine the support of the international community JCPOA which is the main achievement of the nuclear nonproliferation in the last few years… Especially in the situation where the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed full compliance by Iran with its obligations.”

>This move by the US is an abuse of its power and an abuse of the UNSC itself.

>The UNSC has allowed itself to be abused the US.

>Putting on display the failures of the council…

>It is a discredit to the council…

>This is nothing but another desperate attempt by the US…

>Brings up Syria, Saddam, US Navy attack on Iran Air Airbus flight number 655 in 1988.

>Brings up several civil unrest, civil rights abuses in the US, cites LA, Chicago, Waco, TX

>2005 France - Sarkozy: zero tolerance for protests

>I do not recall any UNSC meetings concerning (all the cases cited).

>Elements from outside Iran published content on telegram: incitement to violence, training on how to make/use Molotov cocktails, seize ammunition depots, guidelines on how to raid government buildings

>If anything it should be Iran demanding a UNSC meeting on external interference.

*Matthew Rycroft (UK UN Envoy) - Ex private secretary on foreign affairs for Blair. See - Report_Of_The_Iraq_Inquiry - Section 4.2 page 118 (Downing Street memo). In short, a good little Zogbot as well. No issues at all with sitting at the UNSC and giving false information/statements.

On my recent ID changes (no big surprise):

It has to do with the fake board known as /pol/ & exposing the inaction of 8ch when it comes to CP. Why shut down 8ch and put the owner behind bars when you can use it for intel gathering and psychological warfare? The PR/damage control on sudo reminds me of what happened before leaving 4chan forever in 2014.

I recall the Afrin "YPG" being on somewhat friendly terms with the Syrian gov. earlier though. Hopefully this attack makes them reconsider any independence plans.

Lots of activity in Yemen, Hadi the Saudi-backed "president" in the South was overthrown in a coup by pro-UAE forces, the Houthis are friendly to neither group and also made large advances in the past few days

This points to an unforeseen internal divide between UAE and Saudi politics, what the UAEs political goals are and what they intend to do in Yemen remains to be seen but it certainly a break from the expected and usual politics.

Russian Su-25 jet downed in Syria, pilot killed

https://www.rt.com/news/417798-russian-jet-crashes-syria/

>A Russian Su-25 jet has crashed in Idlib province in north-western Syria, the Russian Defence Ministry confirmed, adding that it was probably shot down by MANPAD. The pilot ejected but was killed by militants on the ground.

>Preliminary data showed the Su-25 plane was downed by a man-portable air-defense system (MANPAD), the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

>The attack took place when the jet was flying over the Idlib de-escalation zone on Saturday. The pilot parachuted down into the area controlled by Al-Nusra terrorist group, the statement said. He was killed during a confrontation with the militants from an unspecified group.

>Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria together with Turkey which is also responsible for the Idlib de-escalation zone is now trying to retrieve the body of the Russian pilot, the Defense Ministry confirmed.

>Published time: 8 Feb, 2018 13:37

>Tajikistan has granted amnesty to more than 100 of its nationals following their return home from Syria and Iraq, where they had joined radical Islamist groups, the interior minister said Thursday. Speaking in the capital Dushanbe, Ramazon Rahimzoda said the returnees had been pardoned in line with a 2015 government pledge, AFP reports. Most of the returnees in question had spent time in Syria. Rahimzoda also said that 250 citizens of Tajikistan, a majority-Muslim country, had died fighting for radical groups in Iraq and Syria, mostly Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

>Might this whole operation have been a trap? The U.S. military clearly knew that something was going to happen in the area. Local deals were made between the Syrian government side and locals Arabs holding the oil fields. The U.S. told the SDF to move out of the way. When the government aligned groups started to take over the field, as presumably agreed upon, the U.S. bombed them.

>The "attack on coalition forces" the U.S. claimed as justification for its bombing seems not to have taken place at all. How else does one explain that sole casualty of the claimed battalion size attack with strong artillery support is "one wounded SDF" fighter?

It's really kind of meaningless to say this now, but I had feeling with the Olympics starting that something like this would happen. It wouldn't be the first time (2008 Georgia).

Syrian air defenses hit multiple Israeli aircraft responding to 'aggression' – Syrian official


6ad429 No.457

>SANA - Media of the Israeli enemy admits the fall of F-16 jet over Galilee and that its pilots were injured

Seems like there's one aircraft that crashed and at least one helicopter also (different sources). Anyhow, one thing interesting about this is how the IDF and Israeli media are covering this. Basically, I'm saying there's bullshit from both sides and this time it's harder for Israel to hide what happened. Instead of praising the arrow defense system, Israeli media will just go full shoah about it and beg the US to get even more involved.

Many people are reporting intense IDF activity in Lebanese airspace at the moment. I'd post more content but honestly I'm not even sure there's more than 3-4 anons here. I'll just keep checking what's taking place and if anything major happens I'll post about it.

People are negative about the lack of action from Russia in such situations, but there's another side to this story. The SAA doesn't have any real electronic warfare capacity (jamming incoming missiles/drones) but someone else does. Just keep that in mind.

Official admission from the State Dept. today:

>Tillerson: The US & coalition forces today control 30% of the Syrian territory, and control a large amount of the population, and control a large amount of Syria's oil fields. So I think in terms of this observation that the US has little leverage or role to play is simply false.

So the US helped SDF take control of oil fields to gain leverage for regime change. The US escorted/transported (((IS))) out of Raqqa and once redeployed, they forced the SAA to retreat. SDF moved in shortly after without a single shot fired between SDF and (((IS))).

I'm somewhat critical of the role of Russia at that specific moment but I understand it was a difficult position. Basically, they had intel US special forces were with (((IS))) (i.e. they were all US military). Fearing the US reaction, they did very little (if anything) to prevent the "transfer from Raqqa". At least that's my take on it. Knowing how trigger happy the ZOG army is, they probably made the correct decision I guess? They don't care about sending their soldiers back home in boxes for Israel but if you kill one of their special zogbots in (((IS))) they'll act like they did after 9/11.

Pics for some context at the time.

>2018-02-14 - Syrian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari voiced severe criticism of the US and its coalition partners, addressing the United Nations Security Council meeting in New York City on Wednesday.

>SOT, Bashar Jaafari, Syrian Permanent Representative to the United Nations (Arabic): "The attack on 8th of February in northern-eastern Deir Ezzor, that the alliance illegally undertook against the Syrian national forces that were standing against ISIS terrorists, I emphasize this, the region where the Syrian national forces attacked ISIS was under the US protection, north-east of Deir Elzor. It's a strip with 30 km in width and 65 km in length. IS, which we fought and destroyed, left this Deir Ez-Zor and Abu Kamal, with the US protection and positioned itself at Iraq-Syrian borders. When IS was attacked by Syrian popular forces, the Syrian forces were attacked by the American Air Force, which proves again and without doubt, the real mission of this coalition and the role that Washington plays in supporting ISIS. Like it did earlier by targeting Syrian national forces in air force attacks at northern Jabal Al-tharda near Deir Elzor, on the 17/09/2016, allowing IS to occupy these regions. Not to mention the deliberate destruction of 90 percent of the city of Raqqa. This coalition has not felt to uphold its commitment to neutralize tens of thousands of mines left behind by Daesh after they left the region to continue their terroristic services under two banners: American in east of Euphrates and Turkish in northern Afrin."

>SOT, Bashar Jaafari, Syrian Permanent Representative to the United Nations (Arabic): "These [coalition] countries have abused the principles of the [UN] charter and they have defied its rules when they assisted terrorist groups and facilitated their acquiring of poisonous chemical weapons, to be used against innocent civilians, after which, manipulating the places and dates of the incidents, and setting up false and misleading testimonies to an investigative mechanism whose integrity and objectivity are a subject of doubt, with the aim of framing the Syrian government. Here, this is a large collection, Mr. President, containing 136 messages that had been sent by the Syrian government to you. 136 messages with very important information about the importing and use of chemical weapons by the terrorists, from outside of Syria into Syria. And they [chemical weapons] were used. 136 messages addressing nothing but the chemical [weapons] issue were distributed as official documents. And they are all in your procession. But no one cares."

>SOT, Bashar Jaafari, Syrian Permanent Representative to the United Nations (Arabic): "I was very sad to hear the statement by the Special Envoy, which I have listened to carefully, has not remotely touched upon the fact that there exists a US occupation in parts of my country, or the fact that there is a Turkish occupation in parts of my country. The Special Envoy said that there is a cross-border conflict in Afrin, not an unlawful Turkish occupation in my country, and the attack on a Syrian city called Afrin."

>Netanyahu claimed at the Munich Security Conference on Sunday that his regime could “act” directly against Iran, showing off what he called a piece of an Iranian drone which the Israeli military claims to have downed more than a week ago.

>Rezayee lambasted the Israeli premier's comments in an interview with Arabic-language al-Manar news channel on Monday, adding, “About Netanyahu's unwise words, I should say that if they carry out the slightest unwise move against Iran, we will level Tel Aviv to the ground and will not give any opportunity to Netanyahu to flee. The US and Israeli leaders don’t know Iran and don’t understand the power of resistance and therefore, they continuously face defeat.”

Expect the usual suspects to talk about the last hospital/bakery in Eastern Ghouta with chemical weapons stories and exclusive footage recorded by AFP's "jihadists reporters". Yesterday, it was the first story on state-run France2 and many other western channels. Same old bullshit.

French media is some of the most manipulative out there. It's not just me saying it, but also a well-known reporter (Richard Labévière) who got fired because he interviewed Assad in 2008. Watch TV5, France24 or listen to RFI for a full month, you'll understand. (((They))) are currently freaking out about the new RT France channel. So much so, they intend to make a new international channel or revamp France24 with a focus on fighting "fake news" (for Macron's next election).

>TEHRAN (FNA) - The Syrian and Russian fighter jets bombed a convoy of terrorists and their military equipment heading from Eastern Qalamoun region towards army positions in Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, inflicting heavy tolls and damages on them.

>Field sources reported on Tuesday that the Russian and Syrian warplanes targeted the positions of Ahmad Abdu terrorist group and other militants who were preparing to launch an offensive against the Syrian army positions near al-Zamir airbase in North of Eastern Ghouta. They added that during the airstrikes against the terrorists in regions near al-Rahibeh and Petra in Eastern Qalamoun a number of terrorists were killed and several of their vehicles and military equipment were smashed. Members of Ahmad Abdu terrorist group were preparing to attack the Syrian army positions in the region.

>In a relevant development earlier today, the Syrian army's air and ground units smashed the military base and arm caches of the terrorists in the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus, as government forces are preparing for extensive operations in the region. Field sources reported that the Syrian fighter jets and artillery units have pounded the terrorists' positions and moves in the towns of al-Shifouniyeh, al-Nashabiyeh, Saqaba, Hamouriyeh, Mesraba, al-Mohammadiyeh, Hazeh, Beit Sowa, Jisrin, Kafr Batna, Duma and Arabayn.

>Meantime, during the operations, several positions of the terrorists, including one of their training bases and a number of arms and ammunition caches in the farms between Harasta and Duma were destroyed. The sources also confirmed that the Syrian army has sent more forces and equipment from Central Syria towards Eastern Ghouta in Damascus, adding that there is an imminent possibility for the army's extensive operations in the region.

Okay this is a bit random but I think it's worth posting. State-run CBC Radio (SRC in French) in Canada invited a reporter who met Assad two times in 2014 for the French magazine Paris Match. At the time (((IS))) was on a major offensive. Assad didn't have any reason to be friendly or generous with his time but he not only did the interview, he met a second time with the reporter just to talk.

(CBC Radio is a bit like NPR in the US. It's basically SJW shows or MSM news stories. They have never been honest about Syria since 2011 so there was no reason to expect anything interesting would happen.)

Background info on the reporter:

>Name: Régis Le Sommier

>First pic: His recently published book about Assad

https://twitter.com/lesommierrgis (to my surprise he seems to retweet /sg/-approved sources)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A9gis_Le_Sommier

So the tl;dr version is: The CBC SJW cunt did her best to control the interview but at one point had to let the guest talk. He gave a good background story about Assad (minus the CIA killing his father), talked about his experiences on the ground in Damascus/Aleppo and most importantly, corrected the MSM bullshit on the poor innocent rebels. He interrupted the cunt and made the point that it wasn't poor innocent civilians getting attacked in Eastern Ghouta but an army of jihadists who use civilians as hostages for protection.

https://archive.fo/Ankmd

At first, I wasn't going to post this for multiple reasons but I changed my mind. It's a very long article and very detailed. I shouldn't have to say this but this is 8ch - let it be known that I don't agree with everything in the article nor do I agree with the views of the author. He's not exactly pro-assad (that's one way to put it).

tl;dr summary: There's a few cement factories in Syria but one in particular is north of Raqqa and owned by LafargeHolcim. They spent a lot of money to buy it and dealt with (((IS))) to protect their investment. From 2015, the factory has been used by the US, British, French special forces as a base of operation and training facility.

Note: This is not included in the above article but an indicted Lafarge executive has claimed French diplomats knew but urged them to stay in Syria. Of course, the French government denies any such claims. A lot of damage control happening over this and if that doesn't work, anyone still talking will be the victim of a freak accident.

I wish I could give you a clear & definitive answer but no one can at the moment. Apparently, there is an unofficial deal on the ground right now involving pro-Assad militias (NDF) but officially speaking, there's no deal that I'm aware of. If you've been following Syria closely, you will understand nothing is simple about this conflict and this month in particular has been one of the most difficult in that regard. It's nearly impossible to stay on top of all the developments unless you only focus on one region or only major events.

Conflicting info. We'll have to see what actually happens in the next 24 hours.

According to a field commander this is what the Tiger (Brigadier General Suheil al-Hassan) told his troops:

>"We won’t allow anyone to interfere in the battle, & regarding the opening of safe passages from the western side, this is totally unacceptable, hit with your fire & don’t show mercy, hit & let the wind scream"

Together with the "White Helmets" al-Qaeda support gang it created the "boy in the ambulance" picture that many "western" newspaper printed on their front pages. The AMC was financed by the French government. The same organization that ran the AMC is now running the Ghouta Media Center GMC. The English language twitter account of the AMC sent its last tweet on July 5 2017. The first tweet of the new GMC was sent on July 9 2017. Both use a similar logo design.

http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13961208001274

https://archive.fo/SE8Kr

>TEHRAN (FNA) - A top official at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force said the US has failed in its frequent attempts to assassinate Quds Force Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq and Syria. "The Americans would assassinate General Soleimani in the Syria and Iraq wars if they could in a bid to prevent the Islamic Republic from meeting its objectives, but they couldn’t," Iranian Supreme Leader's representative at the IRGC Quds Force Ali Shirazi said on Tuesday.

>(((CIA))) Director Mike Pompeo acknowledged early in December that he had written a letter to General Soleimani to warn him about the US interests in Iraq, but the general refused to read it. “I sent a note. I sent it because he had indicated that forces under his control might in fact threaten the US interests in Iraq,” Pompeo made the announcement at a defense forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute in Simi Valley, California. "He refused to open the letter-didn’t break my heart to be honest with you," Pompeo added. Battered by foreign-backed terrorist groups such as the ISIL, Iraq's central government has sought the assistance of its Muslim neighbor, Iran, to defend its borders and bring security back to the country. "What we were communicating to him (General Soleimani) in that letter was that we will hold him and Iran accountable … and we wanted to make sure that he and the leadership of Iran understood that in a way that was crystal clear.”

>US established up to 20 military bases in Syria's Kurdistan - Russian Security Council

https://www.rt.com/news/420092-syria-kurdistan-military-base/

https://archive.fo/3ToaQ

>The establishment of peace in war-torn Syria is impeded by external – in particular, American – interference in the crisis, Assistant to the Secretary of the Russian Security Council Alexander Venediktov told Ria Novosti. “The return of peace and stability to Syria is hampered by continued external interference in the Syrian crisis. For example, in the territory controlled by the people’s self-defense units of Kurdistan, some 20 US military bases have been created,” the official said.

Currently, I have the total at about 15 ZOG bases in that part of Syria alone but I don't have military satellites at my disposal. I already spend too much time as it is trying to stay on top of updates. In other words, if anyone has been keeping track of the US military build up, post your intel in this thread. tl;dr I have no reason to doubt this Russian intel. The actual number is probably higher.

MSM plebs are reacting as if this is all new information. It's not unless you've been spending all your time since 2016 making up stories about Russia. You don't have to be pro-Russia or a fan of Putin to admit this is a good move by the Kremlin considering the timing (election).

>Iraqi Parliament Tells Washington: Stop Garrisoning Our Country

http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13961211000991

https://archive.fo/PeH2e

>The Iraqi Parliament has passed a resolution this week demanding that the Abadi government set a strict timeline for the withdrawal of all US and other foreign occupying troops from the country.

>Just like in Iraq, the US has approximately 20 illegal military bases inside Syria at this point, almost all of them in Kurdish-controlled territory. This is a plausible figure. Since the US has no plan to ever leave Syria, it is safe to conclude that it plans to surely use its bases in Iraq to continue the dangerous regime-change campaign against Damascus, which will create diplomatic spat between Iraqi and Syrian governments – a regional disaster Israel will be more than happy to see for its dubious benefit. And the Iraqis are preparing to stand up to this plan.

>The real crux of the problem is that the US also continues to build up its military because it sparks higher spending on defense and arms from the countries in the region, leads to further sectarian conflicts and discord, diverts money to military spending, and reduces what a nation is going to spend on many other programs, including, in the case of Iraq and Syria, to rebuild themselves after the (((IS war))). This alone can be destabilizing in these countries.

>The Turkish-language Star daily claimed on Monday that representatives of the US, Britain, France, Jordan and Saudi Arabia have had a secret meeting on Syria in Washington. The paper argued that during the meeting the representatives of these countries planned to split Syria, adding that the US representatives pressured for forming an autonomous government in Eastern and Northern Syria.

>The six-step plan according to Star includes:

>1- Forming a "terror state" in Eastern and Northern Syria (alluding to K*rds).

>2- Helping the "terror state" reach the Mediterranean Sea.

>3- Getting United Nations involved in forming and recognizing the new nation.

>4- Disregarding Astana and Sochi peace talks.

>5- The US will find an office for the "terror state" at the UN.

>6- Persuading Turkey to accept the new plan and end military operations in Northern Syria.

>Pentagon pays monthly allowance to rebels, seeks to establish large force in Syria

>Following the virtual defeat of IS terrorists in Syria, the US appears to be trying to restructure its military presence in the war-torn country. In February, a fiscal year 2019 budget document mulled creating a new army out of elements of the so-called Vetted Syrian Opposition (VSO). The forces are “projected to total approximately 60,000 to 65,000” by October 2018, according to a report titled 'Justification for FY 2019 Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO)'.

>The document explains that some 30,000 fighters will conduct “ongoing combat missions” against remaining pockets of IS in the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV), while another 35,000-strong contingent will form Internal Security Forces in liberated areas.

Updates - Replace a "moderate" Zogbot with an extreme Zogbot Edition

Syria

>Damascus: (((IS))) launched a fierce attack today in al Yarmuk Camp (district populated by Palestinians but under IS control) & Al Qadam targeting the "rebels" who want to exit to Idlib. SyAAF reportedly helped the rebels by targeting (((IS))) areas.

>SAA is sending reinforcements to al Yarmuk Camp where a military operation will soon start.

>Evacuation of militants to Idlib from Al-Qadam in S.E Damascus is complete, entire area now under SAA control.

>Damascus: Sporadic strikes targeting Al Hajar Al Aswad the (((IS))) stronghold in South Damascus.

>ICRC President Peter Maurer met with Syrian FM in Damascus. Thanked government for cooperation.

>Russian MoD: We'll respond if our military is endangered by strikes on Damascus.

>Lavrov: "If a new strike of this kind takes place, the consequences will be very serious.

>Hama Province: SAA exchanged fire with terrorists in Hawsh Qabibat and Qabibat al-Asi and repelled the attack, inflicting major losses. The army's artillery units pounded terrorists movements in Satahiyat region West of the town of al-Salamiyah, preventing them from breaking through the army's defense lines. SyAAF carried out several rounds of combat flights over the positions of the Al-Nusra Front near Kafr Zita region and close to the village of al-Arbaeen in Northern Hama

>SANA: The Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources announced that two gas wells in Damascus Countryside and Homs have been put into production with a capacity of 500,000 cubic meters per day.

>The head of the Russian General Staff, First Deputy Defense Minister Valery Gerasimov, has discussed the situation in Syria as well as the recent developments in the Damascus suburb of eastern Ghouta with the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Joseph Dunford, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement. The two generals held a phone conversation on the issue and agreed to maintain bilateral contacts, it added.

Syria (Afrin)

>Turkey’s military and its jihadists allies have encircled the northern Syrian town of Afrin, the Turkish armed forces said on Tuesday.

Syria (Eastern Ghouta)

>Breaking: SAA found an underground chemical facility in al-Shifonyah. Terrorists used it to develop chemical weapons. They found manuals, documentation from a Saudi chemical industrial company and various other items. (Should dig further on this)

>SAA led by 4th Mechanized Division & Syrian Republican Guard continue advance in east Jisrin town, liberating 10 more residential blocks amid significant militants collapse.

Syria (Idlib & Western Aleppo)

>A new jihadi faction emerged in northwestern Syria in recent days, 'Ansar al Tawhid'. Reportedly, it is made up of former Jund al Aqsa fighters and led by a Abu Diab who helped found Jund al Aqsa.

>In its first actions, the Ansar al-Tawhid group has been striking al-Foua and Kefraya with heavy artillery, mortar & shooting at the towns with machine guns.

Elsewhere

>US: Tillerson fired and replaced by CIA director Mike Pompeo (Pompeo is a hard-core Russia hawk, extremely hostile toward Assad).

I think it's fair to say this is very much related to North Korea and the upcoming meeting, the Iran nuclear deal & less importantly, trade negotiations with various countries. One of the only thing Tillerson will be remembered for is when he saved Qatar from a Saudi military invasion. In the media he was doing all the usual hostile rethoric but I think he was seen as too soft on Russia by the likes of Pompeo and many others in (((DC))). The impact on Syria for now isn't important but on the long term it just can't be good. Expect plenty more made up claims to justify US actions in Syria.

>Tillerson: Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave his farewell address at the State Department Tuesday having been unceremoniously fired from the Trump administration. In his remarks, he spoke of the need for detente with Russia. Calling Russia's behaviour troubling, he said that Moscow "must assess carefully as to how its actions are in the best interests of the Russian people and of the world more broadly." "Continuing on their current trajectory is likely to lead to great isolation on their part. A situation which is not in anyone's interest," he said.

The above statement reads like a warning about Pompeo but that's just my take on it.

>US: CIA deputy director Gina Haspel (well-known Bush-era torturer), nomimated to replace Pompeo as director.

>Gaza: Palestinian PM unharmed after convoy hit by explosion.

>China-Russia: China becomes first foreign country allowed to invest in Russian uranium mining.

Take your guess what the next target will be after E.Ghouta. At the moment, the priority seems to be making Damascus safe so I'll go with East Qalamoun. After that who knows. Possibly Dara or the IS pocket in the east. Others say Yarmouk district but it will probably stay a jihadist prison for now. Russia should keep monitoring al-Tanf closely given the latest reports on US activity. There's also Abu-Kamal to keep a close eye on because apparently, the US wants it back.

>There's also Abu-Kamal to keep a close eye on because apparently, the US wants it back.

>Breaking (Unconfirmed): Multiple reports that the situation around T2 pumping station is very bad. (((IS))) took advantage from SDF redeployment and attacked the SAA positions south of Abu-Kamal. SAA sources deny the reports or at least seem to be claiming the government forces have successfully repelled the attacks.
