Russian Defence Ministry:
“American cruise missile strike had been planned long before”

Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation.

(Fort-Russ, 7 April 2017) ~ On April 7, from 3.42 to 3.56 (MSK), two destroyers of the US Navy (USS Ross and USS Porter) made a massive strike with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from the area near Crete Island (Mediterranean Sea) against the Syrian Shayrat Air Base (Homs province).

According to the objective monitoring data, 23 missiles reached the Syrian Air Base.

As a result, an equipment depot, a training building, a mess, six MiG-23 aircraft in repairing hangars as well as a radar station were destroyed.

The runway, taxiways and aircraft of the Syrian Air Force at parking places were not damaged.

According to the information received from the Air Base Command, two Syrian servicemen are missing, 4 were killed and 6 got burning wounds during firefighting.

Therefore, the combat effectiveness of the American massive missile strike on the Syrian Air Base is extremely low.

These actions of the American party are considered as a serious violation of the Memorandum on prevention of incidents and providing security during operations in the air space of Syria signed in 2015.

The Russian Defence Ministry suspends the cooperation with the Pentagon within this Memorandum.

All the accusations against Damascus that it had violated the Chemical Weapons Convention of 2013 given by the USA as reasons for the strike are groundless.

The Russian Defence Ministry has repeatedly explained that the Syrian troops had not used chemical weapons. The Russian military department is looking forward to receiving explanations from the USA concerning the existence of irrefutable proof that the Syrian army had used chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun.

It is to be stressed that in the years 2013-2016 the Syrian government undertook all measures to eliminate chemical weapons, its delivery systems, production facilities. All chemical weapons stocks have been eliminated. The components for their production have been transported from the Syrian Arab Republic to the enterprises of the United States, Finland, Great Britain, and Germany where they have been destroyed.

The US administrations have changed but the methods for unleashing wars have remained the same since bombardments of Yugoslavia, Iraq, and Libya. Allegations, falsifications, grandstand playing with photos and test-tubes with pseudo results in international organizations became the reason for aggression initiation instead of an objective investigation.

It is to be stressed that a large-scale offensive of the ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra armed formations has been launched right after the massive missile strike against the Syrian Air Base.

The Russian Defence Ministry hopes that the activities of the insurgents had not been coordinated with the American party.

Today it is obvious that the American cruise missile strike had been planned long before this event.

It is necessary to conduct reconnaissance operations, to plan and prepare the missile flight paths, and put them on full combat alert.

It is clear for any specialist that the decision for the missile strike on Syria had been made well in advance of the events in Khan Sheikhoun, which have become just a formal reason for the attack, while the demonstration of military power has been dictated only by reasons of internal policy.

In the near future, the effectiveness of the Syrian Armed Forces air defence system will be improved in order to cover the most important objects of the Syrian infrastructure.

Russian General:
“U.S. Trying to Destroy Syria’s Critical Infrastructure”

A top Russian general claims that the U.S. is trying to “completely destroy critical infrastructure in Syria and complicate post-war reconstruction as much as possible”

(Russia Insider, 29 March 2017) ~ Lieutenant General Sergei Rudskoi of the Russian military’s General Staff said on Tuesday that U.S.-led coalition airstrikes were intentionally targeting critical infrastructure in Syria — which could lead to major ecological and humanitarian catastrophes. 

According to General Rudskoi,

 [The U.S.-led coalition is] trying to “completely destroy critical infrastructure in Syria and complicate post-war reconstruction as much as possible.”

He added that US-led military aircraft had destroyed four bridges over the Euphrates River in Syria and hit the Tabqa Dam that lies 40 kilometers west of Daesh’s main stronghold of Raqqah.

Rudskoi further warned that the collapse of the dam, most commonly known as the Euphrates Dam, would create an “ecological catastrophe” and lead to “numerous” civilian deaths.

The United States denies that it targeted the dam, but evidence suggests that the control rooms as well as other parts of the dam have been completely destroyed or damaged.

To make matters worse, fighting near the dam could further exacerbate any structural damages to the site:

On Tuesday, coalition forces could be seen standing near military vehicles less than 2 km (1 mile) from the dam, their mortar rounds casually stacked nearby.

After a brief pause in fighting on Monday to allow technicians to enter the dam complex, SDF fighters resumed their operations around the structure, said spokeswoman Jihan Sheikh Ahmed.

“IS amassed its fighters and attacked our forces in the area, which forced us to respond and resume the operations to liberate the dam,” she said.

Earlier this year, the United Nations raised concern about the prospect of damage to the dam in fighting, warning that water levels — which put pressure on the structure — were already high.

On Tuesday, technicians accompanied by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent could be seen examining the dam to assess whether water levels had risen in recent days.

“The explosions and the clashes are threatening the dam, and we ask for all sides to distance themselves from it,” said Ismail Jassem, an engineer from the SDF-controlled Tishreen Dam in neighboring Aleppo province.

On top of all this, yesterday it was confirmed that the director of the dam was killed by a coalition airstrike:

On 28 March it was reported and later confirmed that Director of the Tabqa dam Ahmed Al Hussein was killed in coalition strike while trying to inspect the dam. He was filmed in ISIS video just day before.

Sounds like a recipe for disaster — or managed chaos.

The Syrian army has managed to take control of a key area in Jobar which lies on the outskirts of the capital Damascus. The achievement follows several days of intense fighting with al-Nusra terrorists. As Press TV’s Zahraa al-Derzi reports, securing Jobar is significant because it enhances the security of the capital.

Deir Ezzor 

The Syrian army air force carried out airstrikes targeting Daesh positions and movement axes in al-Maqaber and Jounid Battalion areas and in the surrounding of the airport, the Electricity Company, Liwa al-Taamin, blocks factories and al-Jafra village, in Deir Ezzor.

The army airstrikes left a number of Daesh terrorists dead or injured and destroyed a number of their hideouts and amounts of equipment.

ISIS STRUGGLES IN DAYR EL-ZOR AS SAA RACKS UP MORE AND MORE VICTORIES – By Ziad Fadel

WARNING TO READERS:  SERVER IS UNDER ATTACK WHICH IS WHY THIS ARTICLE HAS BEEN DELAYED.  WE ARE WORKING ON IT AND WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM SOON. FORGIVE US FOR THIS INTERRUPTION CAUSED BY FANATICAL DEGENERATES.

 

DAYR EL-ZOR:

Al-Maqaabir (The Cemeteries): The SAA’s crack Republican Guard artillery corps scored direct hits on a grouping of ISIS cannibals destroying 2 weaponized drones and a 57mm cannon.

Al-Tharda Mountain: More artillery and rocket fire from our SAA destroyed a Toyota 4-wheel drive equipped with a Croation manufactured anti-aircraft cannon and a 57mm cannon.

Taabiyyat Jazeera Village: This hamlet is just north of the city of DZ and contains mostly Iraqi and Kuwaiti savages. Yesterday and today the SAA engaged these rodents in extremely violent hand-to-hand combat killing 10 of them:

Abu Jarraah Al-Kuwayti (Despite his name, he is an Iraqi parasite)

Majd Khaleel Al-Jad’an (Iraqi dung beetle)

‘Abdullah Jamaal Al-‘Afr (Iraqi roach)

Mujood Hammaad Al-Quraysh (Kuwaiti child molester)

Maajid Qays Al-Jalaal (Kuwayti horse dropping)

Hajeen Village: Near Al-Bukamaal Crossing. 3 rodents killed there by a militia-planted mine; 1 Iraqi and 2 others who remain unidentified.

Panorama: Heavy hand-to-hand fighting resulting in the SAA and militia capturing 5 ISIS foreign rodents who were immediately executed by members of the Shu’aytaat Tribe. Many weapons and boxes of ammo were seized and distributed to the militiamen.

In general, the ISIS terrorists have been unable to disconnect the airbase from the city despite pouring as many rodents as they can spare from Al-Raqqa and Mosul. The sudden appearance of hundreds of Iraqi nationals fighting for ISIS proves that the terrorist organization is planning on losing Mosul to the Iraqi Army such that it will need a new capital to protect its holdings in the East. That strategy, in light of Trump’s accession to power in the USA, is doomed to fail. As of now, SAA and PDC are fighting effectively and have repulsed every attack on the base. However, the presence of over 100 suicide bombers is disconcerting. The SAA is using every asset to keep track of trucks laden with TNT and C-4 driven by crackpot devil-worshipers. Weapon resupply continues unabated.

ISIS STRUGGLES IN DAYR EL-ZOR AS SAA RACKS UP MORE AND MORE VICTORIES by Ziad Fadel

ISIS, al-Qaeda, U.S. Air Force waging coordinated war on Syria’s public infrastructure – By Bernhard

The idea of the Islamic State was “born” in the U.S. military prison camp Bucca in Iraq. Many of its future leader were interned there and had time and space to develop their philosophy and to plan their future operations.

In 2012 the Defense Intelligence Agency warned of the rise of an Islamic State entity in Syria and Iraq:

THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA (HASAKA AND DER ZOR), AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE SUPPORTING POWERS TO THE OPPOSITION WANT, IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME…”.

In an August 2014 NYT interview with Thomas Friedman, President Obama said that the U.S. knew about the dangers of ISIS but did nothing to stop its expansion in Iraq because it could be used to oust then Prime Minister Maliki:

The reason, the president added, “that we did not just start taking a bunch of airstrikes all across Iraq as soon as ISIL came in was because that would have taken the pressure off of [Prime Minister Nuri Kamal] al-Maliki.

In a recent talk with some U.S. paid members of the Syrian opposition Secretary of State Kerry (video – 25:50) made a similar point but with regard to Syria:

“And we know that this was growing, we were watching, we saw that DAESH was growing in strength, and we thought Assad was threatened” Kerry told the Syrians. “(We) thought, however,” he continued. “we could probably manage that Assad might then negotiate. But instead of negotiating he got Putin to support him.”

There are doubts that the U.S. was only watching from afar. The beginning and growth of ISIS was financed by U.S. Gulf “allies” which are subordinated to U.S. wishes. When the Obama administration had to start bombing ISIS after it killed a U.S. journalist the few bombs its airforce dropped were hitting an “ISIS fighting position” or an “ISIS excavator”. That wasn’t a serious campaign. Meanwhile thousands of Turkish tanker trucks were waiting in the deserts to load oil from ISIS-controlled wells to sell it to Turkey. Only after the Russian President Putin showed satellite pictures of those huge truck columns to his colleagues at a G20 meeting did the U.S. start to attack this major source of ISIS finances.

At the end of last year the U.S. military bombed a Syrian government position in Deir Ezzor where some 100,000 Syrians are besieged by ISIS. It killed more than Syrian 100 troops and enabled ISIS to take important hill positions that may eventually help it to conquer the city. This was an intentional strike.

Currently a campaign is waged by the Takfiri forces opposing the Syrian government and by the U.S. to deprive the people under its protection of all public utilities – water, gas and electricity. After the start of the current blocking of the water supplies to Damascus and its 5-6 million inhabitants we noted:

This shut-down is part of a wider, seemingly coordinated strategy to deprive all government-held areas of utility supplies. Two days ago the Islamic State shut down a major water intake for Aleppo from the Euphrates. High voltage electricity masts on lines feeding Damascus have been destroyed and repair teams, unlike before, denied access. Gas supplies to parts of Damascus are also cut.

This campaign against basic infrastructure has since continued. U.S.-supported “rebel” groups take part in it. Al-Qaeda in Syria, aka Jabhat al Nusra, does its share in Wadi Barada. The U.S. military just bombed another Syrian power station. In 2015 it had already waged a campaign against such installations creating huge material damages. Since three days Deir Ezzor and surroundings have no electricity at all. Yesterday ISIS again joined the campaign and blew up a huge gas processing facility in Hayyan in east Homs. Hayyan is the largest such station in Syria and provided electricity, heating gas and cooking gas for all of south Syria including the capital Damascus.

This is a systematic, wide ranging campaign against Syrian infrastructure designed to deprive the people living under government protection of the basic necessities.

If you would ask the U.S. government it would of course say that such a campaign does not exist and is totally not coordinated by the U.S. and its Gulf proxies. It is just coincidence that U.S.-supported “rebels”, al-Qaeda, ISIS and the U.S. airforce all hit the same category of targets in Syria at the very same moment of their war against the Syrian people.

In knowledge of the top U.S. sources quoted above I would be inclined to doubt such an assertion.
