    The Syrian oil stolen by the US exits the country by tanker then enters the pipeline system in Kurdistan on its way to its final destination in Israel.

    Destroy the tankers in Syria and target the pipes in Iraq and Turkey. When they complain tell them to stop shipping stolen Syrian oil and the attacks will stop.

    Destroy the oil fields in Syria... Syria can buy all new drilling and storage and transport equipment from Russia when they get their land back... as long as the US keeps getting free oil they wont give up the land.

    US Troops Flee Syria After Attacks on Bases, 01.16.2024.

    TEGERAN (Sputnik) - The US is evacuating its Hemo military base near the airport in the northeastern Syrian city of Kamishli (al-Qamishli) after repeated attacks by "Iraqi resistance" forces, Iran's Tasnim news agency reports.
    "Tasnim's sources in Syria report the evacuation of the US military base Hemo... in the northern Syrian province of al-Hasakeh due to repeated attacks by Iraqi Islamic resistance groups," the report said. The agency specifies that the Hemo base, located 4 kilometres west of the Kamishla airport, is considered one of the most important US bases in the Arab republic with at least 350 US military personnel. According to the agency, the base is a training center where the US military trains fighters of the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF).

    Last week, Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei called on Shiite "resistance fronts" in various Arab countries to "strike the enemy" wherever it is. Shiite movements within the so-called "Islamic resistance in Iraq" announced the first attack on the US military base Hemo near Kamishla airport.
    Earlier, Iraqi armed groups said they attacked another US base near the Conico gas field in Deir ez-Zor province in eastern Syria. Additionally, several drones were shot down near Erbil International Airport in northern Iraq, where a base of international counter-terrorism forces is located.

    Looks like 4 drone strikes today.

    Note how the US carefully avoids saying they were hit in Syria. Shame that Jordan then said that it wasn't their side of the border.

    That made it Rukban, inside the area generally known as al-Tanf or Area 55 if you are the US wishing to confuse people.

    BUT we know from the Jordanians that it is not Tower 22 so maybe al-Tank itself.

    Josh Rogin
    @joshrogin

    "Tower 22", the U.S. base in NE Jordan where three American troops were just killed, overlooks a Syrian refugee camp called Rukban, where 15,000 people have been living for years. It is also near the Al-Tanf Garrison, where a couple hundred U.S. troops are based.

    Currently 3 dead and 34 injured, some seriously.

    The Washington Post, according to an American military official:

    📌The drone struck living quarters on the base, causing injuries ranging from cuts, bruises, and brain injuries, some of which required medical evacuation.

    📌 It is expected that the number of infections among our forces will increase

    In Syria not Jordan. Get your news right. The base is illegal on borders of Jordan but it is in SYRIA. Funding Hamas. The base  is illegal and has no legislative right to be there under either international community or Syrian government. Hence, the reason they say “Jordan”

    Islamic Resistance in Iraq has claimed the responsibility of attack on 3 three US bases including al-shadadi, Al-tanf in Syria and Al-Rukban on border between Syria and Jordan. They also claimed attack on Israeli regime naval base inside occupied territories in Haifa

    Al-Mayadeen:

    Background. The US use the area as a terrorist, ISIS, training ground.

    Cuarto Nacido
    @CuartoNacido

    US forcefully declared a 55km zone of Syrian territory around a Syrian border crossing with Iraq off limits to Syria! To cut off the trade & travel between Syria & Iraq, & Jordan, KSA, down Kuwait & the Persian Gulf. Don't casually discuss this area as if it is US territory!

    Josh Rogin
    @joshrogin
    This is a crucial node between Iraq and Syria that Iranian militias have long sought to control. There have been several drone attacks on Tanf since Oct. 7. This is a brazen escalation.

    The group that will claim responsibility calls themselves the "Islamic Resistance of Iraq," but that's really a post Oct 7 umbrella group of IRGC sponsored militias. The actual attackers were likely Kateeb Hizballah with support of Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujab and Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq

    I spoke w Syrian partner forces about the Islamic Resistance of Iraq. They told me that the IRGC Quds Force has consolidated various militias under the new moniker to focus efforts and resources on one shared mission: targeting Americans.

    I wonder if the brain injury they talk about that American forces suffer so often when put under Iranian attack is not a physical injury at all, but the fog of American superiority and invincibility has been lifted and they realise how unpopular America is and how vulnerable they are as a representative of the colonial white rich American state they are.

    Yet when they go home they don't live the life of the 1% who they are there fighting to enrich...

    All the risks and none of the perks.

    OPCW
    @OPCW
    🔴 OPCW identifies ISIL as perpetrators of 2015 chemical attack in Marea, #Syria.

    KEY FINDINGS
    1. Sulfur mustard attack by ISIL:
    🔹 The IIT concludes that there are reasonable grounds to believe that on 1 September 2015, between 09:00 and 12:00 (UTC+3), during sustained attacks aimed at capturing the town of Marea, units of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) deployed sulfur mustard.
    🔹The chemical agent was delivered using one or more artillery guns.

    2. Impact locations and remnants:
    🔹 The IIT identified several impact locations across Marea, with no discernible targeting pattern.
    🔹 All remnants and munitions observed at these sites were conventional artillery projectiles, specifically of a 122-mm calibre, modified to disperse a liquid payload.
    🔹 Upon impact, at least six projectiles leaked a black, viscous substance with a distinct “pungent” and “garlic-like” smell.
    🔹 Eleven named individuals who came into contact with the liquid substance experienced symptoms consistent with exposure to sulfur mustard.

    3. ISIL’s exclusive and dedicated capability in this incident:
    🔹 The IIT established that the chemical payload was deployed by artillery from areas under ISIL control.
    🔹 No other entity possessed the means, motives, and capabilities to deploy sulfur mustard as part of an attack in Marea on 1 September, 2015.
    🔹 The IIT was able to reconstruct the organisational structure and chain of command that led to the use of #ChemicalWeapons by the Islamic State in Marea on 1 September 2015.
    🔹 Strategic military operations such as the attack carried out in Marea, involving the large-scale deployment of chemical weapons, would only have occurred pursuant to direct orders from ISIL’s Executive Branch, i.e., Delegated Committee, operating directly under ISIL’s so-called “Caliph”, according to IIT conclusions.
    🔹 In the course of its investigation, the IIT was able to link additional organisational structures and individuals to the use and deployment of chemical weapons by the Islamic State, including ISIL’s Diwan Al-Jund (Department of Soldiery) and the Committee for Military Development and Manufacturing, identifying a total of four named individuals as perpetrators. Two further ISIL members were identified as the primary drivers of ISIL’s chemical weapons programme.

    4. Degree of certainty:
    🔹 The IIT reached its conclusions based on the standard of proof known as “reasonable grounds”, consistently adopted by international fact-finding bodies and commissions of inquiry.
    🔹 The assessment included information from the Fact-Finding Mission (FFM), States Parties, interviews conducted by the IIT, and analyses of samples, computer modelling, satellite imagery, front-line maps, authenticated videos and photos, and other relevant data.

    So, why now? Here comes the cynic Smile

    Aaron Maté
    @aaronjmate
    Douma cover-up apologists might point to this and say: "Look, the OPCW blamed ISIS for a chemical attack! This proves they're not biased against the Syrian government!"

    First, tell that to the veteran OPCW inspectors who challenged the cover-up of their Douma probe, where the OPCW doctored and erased its own findings to baselessly blame Syria. See my reporting on the topic which a grand total of zero people have refuted.

    Second, it's safe for OPCW to blame ISIS. By this point in Sept. 2015, the Obama admin had begun striking ISIS -- after previously "watching" and encouraging its spread in Syria as a tool to overthrow Assad, as John Kerry helpfully admitted. (https://twitter.com/aaronjmate/status/1402415124208623616
    )

    Third, in this specific incident, ISIS was fighting for control of Marea against the Syrian "opposition", aka sectarian death squads backed by the US and its allies.

    So blaming ISIS allows the OPCW to help clear the good name of the "moderate rebels", who were accused of staging the attack in Douma.

    Indeed, this OPCW report goes out of its way to exonerate al-Nusra, aka al Qaeda, aka the group that Jake Sullivan said is "on our side in Syria." (https://aaronmate.net/p/al-qaeda-is-on-our-side-how-obama)

    This is probably the best time for Iranian and Iraqi militants to attack USA bases and finally finishing them off, not is USA too busy supplying arms to Ukraine and Israel leaving very little to none for Syrian conflict but the USA being wiped out in Iraq and Syria would be a nice boost to USA failures around the globe. And with Israel too busy in Gaza it wont be targeting Syria as it has done in the past. If USA is ousted in Syria and Iraq this would only leave ISIS and other terror groups. In the east they would most likely strike a deal with the Kurds who having lost their USA buddies and protection have no other option. Assad should stipulate that part of the agreement is the Kurds track down and eradicate ISIS in eastern Syria. Back in the west of the country is where the biggest issue will remain, and the success may lay with Turkey is they are willing to stop support for the extremists or it they will continue. Either way Syria will be able to channel all it's forces in this direction. Iran, China, and with Russian experience in Ukraine could set up drone production workshops in Syria and saturate Idilib with fpv drones strikes, along with Geran/shahed on fixed targets, and any large concentrations of terrorists FAB1500 used by russian aircraft. I doubt it would take long to clear this last remaining area. Or course the other agreement they could do is state to the terror scumbags that if they don't want to face total eradication they instead could be transported to Israel border and start a jihad against Israel if they do passionate about islam lol! this would cause Israel a massive headache and Syria would get better in a win win win position, not only is the rest Syria liberated, they also get rid terrorists, most likely get the Golan heights back, and as a bonus Israel faces a big issue on its borders, and who cares if the terrorists die in the process, although I must admit the latter scenario is highly unlikely lol!

    The problem for Iran and Iraq is that they are established countries with cities and resources and assets that can be targeted... unlike say the Houthies.

    The west has been shown to be a paper tiger but even a paper tiger can give you a paper cut...

    If you look at what has been happening in Europe the last, the US and EU have been visiting the zoo, but they have been looking out for teenagers like Georgia and Ukraine and Finland and Armenia, and they have been throwing shit at the bear and those kids think this is a fun game because they have always been a bit afraid of the bear but with the EU and US with them they feel real safe and the EU and US threw the first things but after that they stopped throwing things and just encouraged these kids to throw things... more and more things till the bear has had enough... for a bear the scratch it gave Georgia was tiny and sadly was a lesson everyone ignored.

    Now the Ukraine is missing arms and a leg and it still using its remaining hand to jab the bear with a stick with the EU and HATO saying... it is OK... we have money and technology... you are going to be robocop, as its companies take ownership of everything Kiev has and gives them more loans meaning they will owe everything they ever earn too.

    It is not just trying to torture the zoo bear... it is a type of grooming where the very richest in the west get slightly richer and the west has another war.

    Well the shoe is shifting to the other foot... restricting oil and international trade as well as dropping the US dollar and Euro in international trade is going to further damage the west, but is it not something anyone set out to do... the west used their money as a weapon and now the cost is being paid... without being the international currency of choice printing more money will actually make things much worse much faster.

    I would say kick them off your territory but don't make yourself a target in doing so because I am sure they want to blame someone and bomb them and they can't do that with Russia or China... and their attacks seem ineffective against the Houthies and someone is going to get it.

    Assad should stipulate that part of the agreement is the Kurds track down and eradicate ISIS in eastern Syria.

    And if they say no then he can go to Ergodan and say if they drop ISIS then they can work together in dealing with this shared Kurdish problem in Syria and Turkey... which I am sure the Kurds wont think is the better option.

    Of course Iran and Iraq won't openly attack with their military. But through the use of proxies, militias etc who effectively don't own any Infrastructure to bomb lol! but is USA isn't kicked out of the region I wouldn't be surprised once Ukraine conflict is over USA will have spare time on its hands and rekindle a bigger conflict in Syria as the only way to try to get back at Russia and although most likely create nothing but a thorn in its side it's a thorn Syria and Russia could do without. And as I previously mentioned with the defeat of USA in Iraq and Syria it would only further to tarnish their image, and policies in the region and appearing weaker still. And it would also allow Russia to tone down it's presence and arms in the region (although it will of course keep a military presence for it's specific needs in the area). With victories in Ukraine and Syria this will show the world that Russia isn't a push over, and they will be ready for whatever the tries next, (most likely Africa)
