    Anna news new excellent report... over syrian army advances
    shows how deadly the syrian army artillery strikes are and how much terror inflict
    in US ,Turkey backed militants..


    use [cc] auto translation -->english.



    however the power of the artillery strikes seems at bit too powerful for artillery..
    can anyone confirm ? the translation claims it was artillery strikes but the explosion
    looks more like what you will see from a high precision laser guided missile strike from a bomber .
    any case it is a good report.. the obama fighters are showing major weakness in holding positions
    they had no chance with russia airforce and drones help on syrian army .

    Lets hope they do not advance too far, because Turkey will not put up with it. Turkey is already hosting millions of Syrian refugees.

    Millions of additional refugees pouring across the border into Turkey would cause serious problems, plus the Alawites already rule over more than they should.

    I hope the FSA actually expands its zone in Syria. That would ease the refugee crisis.

    The EU said it would give Turkey billions of euros to cope with the refugees... from what Erdogan has said they have not given them the money... so let them all go to the EU where they will be safe and live a life of luxury... I hear they get paid to do nothing and each get a free house... might go myself.... Twisted Evil

    Fuck Turkey. Turkey is sending their Syrian proxies to Libya, so it most likely means that Turkey has given up Syria for the most part(they will stay in the areas around the border area.) FSA are not getting shit, the US and Russia has Erdogan by the balls(the US can put on sanctions and support the Kurds if Erdogan steps out of line and Russia can also do the same. The only thing Erdogan has is he has he EU by the balls but as we know the EU has no balls.

    Idlib will be cleaned up, after that, who knows? I think after they got for North East Syria.

    Interesting claim on Gur Khan article link

    “The largest tank battle”: T-90 in Syrian Idlib praised in Vietnam

    According to a report by Syria, cited by Vietnamese reporters, after the militants were urged to launch a powerful counterattack on the advancing troops of Damascus within 48 hours, the Syrian leadership immediately took active measures to destroy the enemy group.

    In addition to conventional forces, 10 T-90S units were used, which operated under the cover of Mi-35 attack helicopters. They managed to destroy 30 rebel tanks, mainly T-55 and T-62. As a result of the defeat of the militants, government forces established control over the Sinjar settlement from December 21 and held it, despite repeated rebel attacks.

    This is considered the largest tank battle in the Syrian civil war in the last 8 years.

    cheers

    Anyone have any other sources on this battle?

    Unlikely. There was never picture of t-90s togather. They are mostly spread in syria to get advantage of their optics.

    The mi-35 would have destroyed those tank well before they could bring them into battle.

    Anyone got any comments on this take?

    Monetary values seem a bit high to me and the Nov 20th strike seems to have been pretty effective if correct.


    Robert Inlakesh, …via Press TV, TehranDecember 23, 2019 –

    Israel has repeatedly claimed throughout 2019, that it’s airstrikes inside of Syrian territory have targeted Iranian facilities and forces, but according to source and material evidence this claim can be proven to be false. The real target was the assets of the Syrian military itself, a flagrant aggression and violation of Syria’s sovereignty.

    Since the 20th of January in 2019, Israel has been launching attacks inside of Syrian territory. The attacks were, according to Israel, carried out against Iranian forces that were supposedly building up in order to launch attacks against the Israelis. Israel has claimed that it has destroyed tens of Iranian bases and killed countless Iranians, a claim repeated throughout Western Mainstream Media and even sometimes Russian media.

    But despite such bravado from Israel regarding its alleged attacks on Iranians in Syria, there is no evidence to support such claims. On the contrary, the evidence points to the strikes fulfilling the primary goal of destroying the Syrian Arab Army’s Air Defense Systems. Evidently, attacks on Iranians in Syria have occurred. However, they are small in scope when compared to the primary targets struck.

    Below will follow a chronology of Israeli strikes this year against Syrian Air Defense targets, proving categorically that the attacks have primarily destroyed assets belonging to the Syrian military and not Iran.

    On the 20th of January, Israel launched an attack striking areas around the Damascus International Airport. In the attack, two Pantsir units, both of them TELAR’s (Transporter Erector Launcher and Radar) were struck and destroyed.

    Long-range S-200 (SA-5) sites near Dumayr Air Base and Khalkhala Air Base were also struck as part of the strikes. This was, in response to these assets [S-200 units]’s firing on Israeli warplanes during the attack on Damascus International Airport. An unspecified number of single-missile launchers and battalion-level fire control radar sites were destroyed by the airstrikes.

    Below is satellite evidence showing the two Pantsir units destruction, as well as a Chinese-made JY-27 Early Warning Radar, which was destroyed at the Damascus International Airport.

    During the May 27th attacks, a single ZSU-23-4 Shilka (can prove both via secondary sources) was destroyed at Tal al-Shaar in the Quneitra Governorate. Two SAA members were injured and a lieutenant, from Al-Qaryatayn (Homs Province), was killed in the strike.

    On June the 1st, a modernized S-75 unit belonging to the 781st Air Defense Battalion near Khan al-Shieh was destroyed by Israeli airstrikes. Israel admitted they targeted the Syrian military as part of the June 1st strikes in supposed retaliation for allowing Iranians to operate inside the country.

    On the 11th of June, an Early Warning Radar System was struck and destroyed on the Tal al-Hara mountain in the Dara’a Governance of Southern Syria. This took away Syria’s vision of Israeli strikes coming in from the occupied Golan, which left them open to further attacks.

    On July 1st, five key Early Warning Radars were destroyed during Israel’s large-scale assault on Syria’s air defense system, in which the Israelis fired around 150 cruise missiles. The locations struck were EWR sites at Ad-Dimas, Jamraya, Mezzeh Air Base (Damascus) and near Al-Kisweh in the Damascus region. An Early Warning Radar system (comprised of three sites linked to one overall network) south of Homs city was additionally targeted and destroyed. For further information on how the June 11th and July the 1st attack were pulled off by Israel, refer to this previous Mint Press article written on the subject.

    On November 20th, significant damage was again inflicted upon Syrian Air Defence. Five Buk-M2E equipment units (including 2 TELAR’s, 1 TEL (Transporter Erector Launcher), one battalion-level command post vehicle, and a battalion-level search radar) located to the south of Damascus, near the Brigade 68 base (Beit Saber area) were destroyed.

    A radar-equipped ZSU-23-4 Shilka in south of Damascus city was also destroyed in the area. Primary and secondary command-and-control sites in the Beit Saber area, as well as at Mezzeh Airbase, and Damascus International Airport were additionally destroyed. Four officers, Maj. Manhal Dib, Capt. Osama As’ad, 1st Lt. Omran Suliamn, and Lt. Jafar Nouraldin were killed in these strikes.

    According to Syrian military source, the November 20th Israeli strikes on Syria resulted in the annihilation of approximately $1 billion worth of military equipment. The strikes on the command-and-control sites not only obliterated the coordination mechanism for Syria’s air defense operations in the south of the country, but also disrupted the coordination means for the National Defense Forces (which are under the control of Syrian Air Force Intelligence).

    This year, Israel has been targeting Syria’s military assets, not Iranian forces inside of Syria. If they were targeting Iranian sites, the proof of damage to Iranian forces would be evident. Yet there is no significant evidence of this and only Israeli allegations. More specifically, Israel has gone after Syria’s Air Defense systems with its countless missions against Syria, which has, according to Syrian military sources, cost the Syrian government roughly $2 billion worth of equipment throughout the course of this year.

    Unfortunately, this information has not been reported upon by Mainstream Media and has not been disseminated by Israeli or even Russian media; this is due to the facts being against their national interests.

    The Israelis evidently don’t have any interest in distributing this information in full, because the Israeli government maintains that they have been combating Iran in Syria and they know that their targeting of the Syrian military constitutes a flagrant violation of international law and would warrant the justification for a Syrian response to their illegal strikes. Israel seeks an agenda of projecting power over Iran to its general public, and admitting to the true results of its missions would be strategically unwise.

    The Russian state media also does not seek to release this information as Russia values Israel as an ally. The dissemination of the facts proving the extent to which Syria has been struck, would also prompt calls for a Russian response, in some form, against the Israeli aggression.

    Russia is seen by many as being a part of a type of anti-Western hegemony axis of Resistance. However, its relationship with Syria is based on mutual interests and not purely on ideologically-driven resistance. Even Russian officials have upheld the official story, manufactured by Israel, claiming that the Israeli strikes have been targeting Iran. Claims that do not hold up when examined after each Israeli bombardment.

    20th november attack is fake they fired a couple of missile with little success. There was no report of destroyed buk. Only the guy named babak thagvee said so and no one else. He must be the source for this article.

    2 billions dollars..worth of equipment.. lol that guy in presstv is full of shit .

    russia have not given syria 2 billions dollars worth of equipment , not even 1 billion..

    many of those radars that israel "Destroy" are repaired again withing 2 hours..
    we already saw that during trump first 100 cruise missile strikes on syrian bases..
    that they claimed "DEStroyed" but were operating again all of them in 2 hours"

    and there have been no reports from any side of buks defenses defeated either.. this is first time..
    such claims are being told.. the 2 pantsirs destroyed and one s-200 are the major assets they have lots..
    the pantsirs one was without msisiles and the other was overwhelmed with too many missiles..  

    and to claim israel fired 150 cruise missiles on syria in one day this is bullshit..  they will not waste such
    ammount of missiles for so little results..  iranian presstv is full of shit.. not even nato lunched such large
    number in one day in syria even after having 5 destroyers and submarines and planes near.., neither there is any videos showing  10x t-90 tanks fighting rebels..


    serious claims , requires serious evidence ..videos with pictures.. and not "anonymous sources"
    israel had no problems in the past releasing videos of the 2 pantsirs being hit.. if they did anything more they will have released it..   it seems iran is just spreading bullshit ,trying to incite russia to start a war against israel..
    for their benefits.. since they will love to use russia to fight israel ,so that they don't have to do it..
    but they are a bunch of puzzy cowards that use syria and now want to use russia as a shield to fight israel..
    they need to stop hiding behind syria and grow some balls and fight israel on their own , they have plenty of missiles to do it.. and not depend on russia for it.

    Fuck the Turks. They can watch while the SAA digs Erdies rats out of their holes and twists their scrawny necks.

    plus the Alawites already rule over more than they should.

    dafuq? You think the (elected, recognised and legitimate) Syrian government (where 80% of the MPs are Sunni) are somehow "Alawites"? Wow, someone has been reading HTS and AaS press releases too often...

    I hope the FSA actually expands its zone in Syria. That would ease the refugee crisis.

    LOL!! You must be the only one on the planet who thinks that terrorists taking over territory will cause people to return to their homes. Most people on the planet hope that the so-called FSA get turned into Takfiri Jam. Once its processed and the bone and sinew removed, it can be canned and exported as low-grade dogfood. Twisted Evil

    not sure if this video have been posted..
    but you never get tired of seeing nato backed suicide bombers.. sent to their
    goats heaven... by russian airstrikes.


    choose in substitles auto translation ----> english  



    if i was a russian pilot ,i could do that forever every day
    and for free.   lol1   the only disappointing thing is how few killed with such powerful bombs..
    doesn't look efficiency is the best one..  Probably Russian airforce will do better with much smaller guide bombs
    ,and with their cargo of missiles capacity increased 5x times.

    the elephant in the room ,what no media talks about , not even Russian media.. dares to do it..
    is that what we witness in Syria ,is an introduction of world war 3 ,done by proxy.. Where basically ,
    in general terms , western anglo -jewionist forces , have been weaponizing Islam , and managed to revive
    the old times religious conflicts of the crusades.. between islam against christianity. in that order..
    the crusades contrary to western media of lies .were not wars for greed ,of europe against middle east.
    but wars to kick the muslims from invading europe ,as more effectively ottoman empire did.. and their armies intended to capture rome. and had there be no crusades and no russian empire ,europe will have been today
    a colony of turkey.  

    from The syrian from the point of view of the terrorist ,is a war against christianity. they could not stand assad real secular politics ,of full freedom of religion
    in syria and womens with equal rights and freedoms as men . what assad allows is a major crime in other muslim nations.. in "moderate" iran for example there is death penalty for any muslim that converts to christianity..
    and most muslim nations ,vast majority of them , either have death penalty or jail senteces for muslim that converts to christianity..  and this is why so many sectarian muslim ,specially sunnies that accept nato weapons and create terror organizations turns against syria and russia.
    this is what is all about ,syria is a religious war agaisnt christianity ..what drives so many  muslim idiots from all over the world travel to syria to fight against assad.. and after syria ,iraq ,iran and russia will have been next.
    they also hate shias too .as much as christians.. so this is why iranians helps syria ."not because they love" christians culture and christian religion...it actually represent a threat to their religion..it is. .because they know if syria falls ,they will be next. and so helping syria is on iran interest too..even if they reject strongly the christian religion too.. but the war from the west point of view is war against russia.. nothing more and nothing else..
    iran and hezbolah are only bonuses for israel.. but destroying russia is their ultimate goal.

    Yeah, keep in mind that what you see in hollywood movies is not what happens in reality.

    You can look at these videos and see two cars with bad guys in them and a fairly large bomb appears to hit about 10 metres away and the cars appear untouched.... in actual fact if this was a high speed camera and you could see the blast wave and the fragments coming from the bomb and from objects where the bomb hit then you would realise the people in the car are probably dead or seriously injured.

    When the enemy is being attacked when they are just driving around the place and they have no way to respond or defend themselves then ultimately it is a question of time before they are dead meat... even if they only get killed every three or four attacks, they are still getting killed.

    I would suggest they are getting maimed and injured in every attack and most attacks will be getting kills too... they are not wearing body armour so bomb fragments will pass straight through a light ute (ie Toyota light vehicle) like a white hot knife through warmed up butter... car doors wont even stop pistol bullets...

    the elephant in the room ,what no media talks about , not even Russian media.. dares to do it..
    is that what we witness in Syria ,is an introduction of world war 3 ,done by proxy..

    Proxy wars were a normal part of the cold war and they will continue to be normal, don't read too much in to them.

    The syrian from the point of view of the terrorist ,is a war against christianity. they could not stand assad real secular politics ,of full freedom of religion
    in syria and womens with equal rights and freedoms as men . what assad allows is a major crime in other muslim nations.. in "moderate" iran for example there is death penalty for any muslim that converts to christianity..

    Not really because the terrorist knows they get a lot of their support and funding from the Christian west, and whether Syria is muslim or christian or secular does not really mean much globally... the christian empire wont suddenly collapse if they lose syria just as the muslim world wont collapse if it is christian or secular.

    Iran allows women to vote and be educated and get jobs, I tutored an Iranian woman in IT about 20 years ago, she was a trained doctor but her qualifications were not recognised here so she could spend enormous amounts of money and 7 more years of her life training to be a doctor again or she could go for 3 years and become an IT specialist so she went for the latter... she had children to support.

    The point is that a woman doctor in Iran is not unusual and is socially acceptable there...

    "The U.S. forces evacuated 16 bases and military posts during Operation Peace Spring and returned to six bases as the operation was paused.

    The U.S. army strengthened its military presence in Syria’s northeastern border and oil fields.

    With five bases and military posts in Hasakah province, the U.S. forces are conducting efforts to set up two other military posts in Qahtaniyah town and Himo village in Qamishli city.

    The U.S. aims to both secure oil fields in Hasakah and strengthen its presence on the Turkish border with the military posts.

    The U.S. forces are currently deployed at 11 bases and military posts, including five in Hasakah, four in Deir ez-Zor and two in Raqqa.

    They also carry out efforts to set up two new bases in Deir ez-Zor."  Yebi Safak

    Yes, this newspaper is pro-Erdo but this looks like a useful map to lay out where everyone is at present.  The map does not extend far enough south to include the US roadblocking position at Al Tanf on the Syrian/Iraqi border but other than that- pretty complete.  pl

    Documents Reveal Dutch Government Sent Military Supplies to Terrorists in Syria

    @johnin

    That map may be wrong. US isn't close to Deir Ezzor from my understanding.

    the attack on iraqui pro iran militia  by US drones recently.. in the border of syria and iraq..
    shows that US is seeking to expand their control over iraq -syrian border.. to block /encircle
    syria from all sides.. to block their commerce.. with iraq .. and lebanon protest seek to
    place a puppet government pro israel in power and block syria trade with lebanon too..

    they want to completely starve syria economy and isolate syria from any cross border trade  ,
    and force russia to spend more money backing them..

    wondering if putin the polite will still keep his invitation to Trump  to the victory parade.. Rolling Eyes
    after they attack and murder a general that russia worked closely to fight all NATO backed
    terrors groups..
