27 Aircraft, 1,140 Personnel Withdrawn From Syria Over Past Days: Putin

Marina Lystseva/TASS

Over the past few days 24 aircraft and 1,140 personnel have been withdrawn from Syria, Russian President Vladimir Putin told the alumni of military academies at a reception on June 28.

“This withdrawal is continuing now. Only over the past several days, 13 planes, 14 helicopters and 1,140 personnel have been pulled out,” Putin said adding that the pullout of Russian forces from Syria began in December 2017. “You and your fellow servicemen together with them will fully use this experience of the personnel’s combat training here in Russia to perform the most difficult and outstanding tasks during snap checks, strategic and tactical exercises, and learn how to use the unique new generation equipment, which the forces start receiving.”

The president said that the expirience gained in Syria must be used in training Russian military personnel.

“The Russian army clearly demonstrated its growing potential and better coordination among military units in the struggle with terrorists in Syria,” he said. “All of you and your fellow servicemen are now to use the experience of that operation in combat training.”

The Russian military kicked off its anti-terrorist operation in Syria in late September 2015. Since then, the Russian military involvement has changed the crouse of the war and has allowed the Damascus government to retake large areas from terrorist groups.

        • Concrete Mike

          Your planes havent been touched because
          #1 its what you morrons want to start your war to save your debt ridden economy.
          #2 russia does not want to activate there s400 unless russian troops are in danger.
          #3 we arent fucking animals like you guys.

          Whatever your working for the enemy of the people how do you sleep at night you peice of shit.

        • LaRata

          Only 2 to 3 mission a day to bring support to isis and al Qaeda. This is the only thing the powerful US planes are doing in their illegal present in Syria skies…

        • frankly

          The financial damage maintaining such a huge military presence will be the death of your empire. If you had a patriotic bone in your body you would call for a revolt over the role Israel plays in running the USA.

          As to the utter failure of the US to do to Syria what it planned, well that is truly funny. Worlds most expensive military can not put enough boots on the ground to stop Bashar. Too bad all that money spent on ISIS, al Nusra and FSA is nonrefundable.

          You know what’s really really funny, The US fighting ISIS. So as a true patriot how does funding evil ISIS head choppers make you feel?

    • 1691

      It’s nothing compared to america losing its army of mercs and the war. The SAA can easily handle the remains of the usis on it’s own.

        The only mercs that were lost were the 200 Russians slaughtered in Deir Ez-Zor by US forces 😁

      Oh please, how many thousands of US soldiers will never be returning from Iraq and Afghanistan alive?

      To quote from wikipedia: “129 helicopters and 24 fixed-wing aircraft have been lost in Iraq since the 2003 invasion”.

      “375 U.S. helicopters lost in Iraq and Afghanistan up to 2009”.

      Compared to how the US went bumbling / looting around in Iraq and Afghanistan for decades the Russian operation in Syria was a case study in achieving objectives within a reasonable time-frame and budget.

      Your DOD will be studying their performance for decades to come.

      • Patriotic_White_American

        😂😂😂 Russia has lost more planes in months than the US has lost in two wars in over 20 years

        Remember when Israel turned that Pantsir S1 to scrap metal?

        Fake Russian weapons make me laugh

        • ابوعبدالله العراقي

          Yes and we took recently two of their combat helicopters (one exploded after direct hit from TOW missile and second was only damaged in the tail). Russians are very silent about their losses in land of al-Sham.

  • Trovak

    Not a good sign. Now the zionist-apartheid regime will have a free range.

    • Fred Dozer

      Why are they telling the terrorist (NATO) this information. Maybe, a load of crap, to get them in the open ?

      • ابوعبدالله العراقي

        Russians are naive and stupid even if their current leadership looks smart and sane they are not. I knew them and their failures in Afghan and Chechen wars.

        • World_Eye

          Wait you now talk about their CURRENT leadership that looks smart and sane and then you are saying that they are not because of failures in Afghan war. What does this today leadership has with the Afghan war 30 years ago under Soviet communism, kinda of balance though.

          • ابوعبدالله العراقي

            I talked about the Russians first then about their leadership. But the connection was made to Russians not their current leadership.

          • World_Eye

            Hmm yes Russians in general are naive.

          • ابوعبدالله العراقي

            When i looked at the videos from first Chechen war they sent their 21-25 yars old guys (young unexperienced soldiers) in long convoys against the well armed mujahedeen and they all died without giving any resistance after quick ambush. I never understood why they are doing that to their young generations they slaughtered own people in pointless Chechen wars. Convoys were hit by RPGs and machineguns but hundreads died after giving up they were shot by the mujahedeen into foreheads as response for their shelling of civilian towns which is usual for them. They don’t fight their enemies but instead the people who support their enemies which is very bad tactics in the long run. Russia claimed that only 6 000 of their young soldiers were killed and another 4000 missing and 25 000 wounded but the numbers are way higher. On YT graphic videos are censored but there are still many videos from the wars: https://youtu.be/uqNfk5Lh8xA?t=19s

            Russians have weak religion, weak motivation – money, and no determination. But the same applies for Americans and any other non islamic armies.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Don’t worry his kind are being played as eliminate the leaders is being played by both sides except Erdogan’s side as he is afraid ,so he sends Turkish troops to fill the gaps of his proxies.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        They have always done this as they rotate equipment and manpower for rest and refitting common practice in today’s Military’s. One thing is Russia have never wavered in their support for Syria and the fight against common enemies as Al Qaeda/Nusra/HTS and ISIS terrorists.

    • r0b1n

      There is new short speech on the internet by the Caliph Baghdadi, he talked about Russian withdrawal from land of Shaam, American defeat in Iraq and promised us the victory in the upcoming years, asked his soldiers for patience.

      We are waiting for reupload sadly it was took down also with few Twitter accounts and also from YouTube.

          • ابوعبدالله العراقي

            If you pay taxes, you support the disbelievers in their fight against Muslims.

            My friends are living in Indonesia, Tunisia, Qatar and Jemen and they say that every country is better than al-Sham under the rule of the tyrant Assad backed by the worst evil on this planet.

          • ابوعبدالله العراقي

            Good night and take care of yourself too, dont let the kuffar fool you. In Europe they watch you, they spy on you. Always connect only from public networks and dont worget to wear your hijab in public.

          • Hamletka 😍

            That’s not true the police is very friendly here as far I know, it is not like in Iraq that they will put you in jail for just saying that you lived in Mosul without further asking you anything else 😂 Of course I don’t support terrorism and want to live peacefully without breaking the laws of the country where I do live as written in the manual of Islamic law in war and peace time.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            You Takfiri are so few and dwindling you will be easily hunted down as was this whole exercise is all about eliminating radical extremists.

          • Me? Leave me alone im peaceful. What is wrong on being takfiri? When Muslim see clear shirk takfeer is obligatory, you know?

          • Hamletka 😍

            Hello Muja I also live in Europe, I’m now on vacation in Turkey but soon I will be back so i will be able to access my google account again (stupid google blocks my access now with message: This device isn’t recognized. For your security, Google wants to make sure it’s really you.). So if you want some help write me on my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV27exhiZ2bbx8fIRWtX04Q) and I will give you mine Skype. And be careful in Germany, there is a generous dose of idiotic anti-Islamic and extremist left neo Stalinists, but the same phenomenon is probably anywhere in the Europe. I live near Germany in Slovakia and there are definitely not as many Islamic organizations as in the Czech Republic (Same language country but located between Slovakia and Germany). Anyway, I never regretted that I live there and once you know the non-Islamic alphabet (English text) you can learn any language except the Russian languages which use the different (Russian alphabet).

          • Hi, and thank you for your kind support its nice to have an extra friends from the Muslim community. I will install skype later, however it is great spying tool of our enemies, be careful :) I will be soon on YT, now i have few problems that i need to solve have a good day and thanks you for info. I don’t trust the non-muslims here :)

          • I saw you YT channel nice we will be good friends :)

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            It’s because of the IP it needs to be registered with device again would rather use local to be temporary only.

          • Hamletka 😍

            Also if you learn the local language and you will be able to communicate with people does not mean you are fine. The reality is that you will never feel at home, you won’t get to feel part of a country in the same ways that locals will. They may be warm and tolerate you but you won’t ever be one of them and they will never tolerate your religion (Islam).

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            You are the real kuffars keep your takfiri nonsense to yourself before you become targets of the new EII forces.

          • Explain, i believe im good Muslim my family teached me well and my friends are good people, unlike you :) We did nothing wrong :)

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Simple act like an outsider always be treated as one there are no religions in countries just people.

          • You dont know me, im not interested in conflicts but i dislike shirk. There is nothing worse than Shias who call themselves Muslims but they are openly practicing shirk. Thankfully in Germany there are no Shias but real, helpful Muslims. I can tell you for now: I like Christians far more than the Shias or other pegans.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            I don’t like fundamentalists of any religion because all they follow are the teachings of men of which have always obscured messages for their own selfish reasons.

          • It is easy to say that, but if you whole family are “fundamentalists” and all of your friends too you have no choice trust me. Now in Europe everything is different and on every corner there is somebody who will try to pull you away from your faith. But iam still proud to be a Muslim and i believe that mine religion is the only true religion because the prophet said that Islam is both Christianity and Judaism united as final message to mankind it makes perfect sense. People should seek peace and the goal of Islam is to unite all people under one religion.

          • Outsider? No people loved me in the school and i loved them, im friendly to every Muslim even those who dislike lSlS or other rebel groups not backed by our enemies.

      • People don’t post links to this web they will track you down and hunt you ;) Just saying.. Be righteous don’t let your enemies to use your weakness against you :) Don’t do injustice to other people even the disbelievers deserve to live.

        • ابوعبدالله العراقي

          Hey Muja, they will be nice to you, they will try to use their influence over you to take you away from the religion of Islam, they will insult your Prophet (PBUH), they will offer you drugs and pork. Be strong in your faith otherwise they will misguide you from the straight path. It is the punishment of the kafir, munafiq and sinful is injustice. And Allah is High Exalted above that; then we are obliged to change the meaning to something other than practice, which is the creation of guidance from nothing and aiding man towards it. Thus the one who practices guidance and misguidance is the servant, and therefore he is accounted for it.

          • Don’t worry i know my religion :) My brother was martyred in lSlS and all of my family is are muslims :) Check this:
            It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:
            “Religion is easy, and no one overburdens himself in his religion but he will be unable to continue in that way. So do not be extremists, but try to be near perfection and receive the good tidings that you will be rewarded. Gain strength by worshipping in the mornings and afternoons and during the last hours of the night.” Source: https://islamqa.info/en/124611

          • ابوعبدالله العراقي

            You don’t understand it, it virtually says don’t pray more than five times and don’t do more than Allah and His messenger has commanded you. This does not mean that you should stop your jihad or that you should stop fighting the disbelievers. It means do exactly what Allah and His messenger commanded you in the book nothing more and nothing less because both are extremes. If you take out the jihad, fighting the disbelievers then you are leaving part of your religion as it never existed and you are stepping down from the straight path. If you pray more six or ten times a day this is another extreme don’t do it. Fear Allah and listen to his book. And Allah knows best.

          • ابوعبدالله العراقي

            The Prophet said, “Nobody who dies and finds good from Allah (in the
            hereafter) would wish to come back to this world even if he were given
            the whole world and whatever is in it, except the martyr who, on seeing
            the superiority of martyrdom, would like to come back to the world and
            get killed again (in Allah’s cause). The Prophet said, “A single
            endeavor (of fighting) in Allah’s cause in the afternoon or in the
            forenoon is better than all the world and whatever is in it. A place in
            Paradise as small as the bow or lash of one of you is better than all
            the world and whatever is in it. And if a houri from Paradise appeared
            to the people of the earth, she would fill the space between Heaven and
            the Earth with light and pleasant scent and her head cover is better
            than the world and whatever is in it.”

          • Hamletka 😍

            Yes, people here eat pork and drink alcohol all day, but you can say that you are vegan and you are safe (nobody will ask you stupid questions about your prophet or religion). There are oriental restaurants and other restaurants with vegan menu so you can eat pork-free meal every day.

            They will try and use their influence over you to take you away from the religion of Islam

            How about this:

            We will use our influence in the form of a butcher knife over you or a barrel of a gun to deliver you into the religion of Islam (or you die)

            Do you think Allah is impressed by your new ‘converts’ that pretend to pray in mosques? Clearly there is a problem with the strength of your religious convictions and faith in Islam if only by threat you have confidence in gaining converts.

            I find your lack of faith disturbing…

          • ابوعبدالله العراقي

            What about the option to pay jyzia? We always gave this option to the people of the book. And yeah there is fourth option you can leave our land without being killed or hunted down. Even if the first generation of converts are not true muslims their children will go to mosques and children of their children will also go to mosques and learn their religion so one day they will become true muslims.

      • World_Eye

    • frankly

      Aggressive Russians at it again, confounding the experts by withdrawing.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    ok now all is left is to know how many of them also been replaced with fresh troops in need of war training. Because that kind of training you get only one way and that is to participate in war. War games are only good for one thing to impress the politicians and the ignorant brass.

    War expiriense only is gained in war where they shoot you to kill you and is not a joke you get to relive another day. I think war games are an excellent rehearsal for hollywood movies, but never apply as many found out the very hard way in war. Especially in the most important part where you actually need to use your brain to save one self rather than follow an idiot who dont know where his ass from second base is.

    And I say this from personal expiriense not because of something I think, in order to argue.

  • Boris Kazlov

    I am sick of watching Putin declare mission accomplished just like Bush, no fanboys will explain that the chessmaster can bring forces back anytime, then what is the purpose of withdrawing them in the first place? No combat readiness. ISIS and murikans still there, so is Nusra, Israel and Turkey, where is the mission accomplished?. Come on fanboys/girls/LGBTQs

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      Is time for Syrians to stand on their two feet, not Russia’s. Syrians have the best army now around the globe, in the kind of war they fight and are winning. And Russia’s support she will always have. On the other hand if you stop to think this war if it ever get out of hand then it will not be fought only in Syria or ME. No need for the russians to be in Syria since they not occupying it, but helping it and not the UK/Usrael way.

    This is why Russia has been shoving through the Constitutional Committee.
    The slow withdraw of Russians and the gradual overstretch of the SAA mean that we can expect a decrease in the size and number of SAA offensives. Meaning that Daraa will be taken and the slow eradication of ISIS cells and the slow pacification of the myriad street gangs will be effected but an offensive across the Euphrates or into Idlib or Afrin is highly unlikely.

    Putin is in a hurry to finish the betrayal of Syria before his summit with Trump.

    • Sinbad2

      Putin, actually Russia, it’s more than one man, has defeated the mighty USA in Syria, it will never be spoken of, because it would hurt Americas pride, but that’s the result, Russia won, America lost.

      • XRGRSF

        Sinbad, I wish I could agree with you, but the fact is that Russia has pulled out while the U$ still occupies nearly half of Syria, and the U$ isn’t going anywhere. I remember when Nixon told the North Vietnamese that the U$ would come back if they attacked South Vietnam, but the U$ didn’t do a thing when the attack came. It will be the same with Putin.

        • RamboDave

          Good points. You can see my comment above that elaborates on this. Putin already has a deal with Israel, and it will be put in writing next month at the Trump-Putin summit. Why else would neocon John Bolton even agree to this summit? Neocons are now in total control of Trump.The US Zionists controlled media will now do an about face and totally stop it’s demonization of Russia. It has already started.

          • XRGRSF

            Roger on Israel, and the evil they are working throughout the world with the U$ as their bully. I completely agree with your position on the Neo-cons, Bolton, the Jews, and their control over Trump. I’ve also noticed that the U$ media is backing off of Russia. The question remaining is what will Putin do. If Putin tells Trump, politely of course, to piss up a wet rope it will all be over for the Neo-cons. Russia’s future is in the East, and in 20 years the U$ is going to be a side show. I think Putin understands this.

            I have friends in Russia, and they don’t think the Russia electorate will take kindly to Putin if he sells out to the U$. Of course, if he does he’s saved his treachery for his last term, and doesn’t need to worry about reelection. The U$ raped Russia 20 years ago, and that’s like yesterday to the Russians. As we both know, the Russians may forgive, but they never forget.

            We do indeed live in interesting times.

        • Sinbad2

          By the time Nixon came to power, the US had already lost the Vietnam war.

          Ignore the words of politicians, they lie for a living, it’s the actions that count.
          The US/Israel(same thing) have been funneling supplies to ISIS etc through Jordan for years, but with the Syrian army taking control of the border crossings, it’s game over for the US in western Syria.

          • XRGRSF

            Agreed: The U$ entered the VN war to make money, and it was lost militarily from the day it started. When Iraq 2 was cranking up my wife asked if I thought we would really do it. We were watching the news, and the talking head had just said, “The Federal Reserve rate has not been this low for this long since 1965.” I explained to her (she’s a Brit) that 1965 was when the Gulf of Tonkin incident occurred, and we cranked up the war in S.E. Asia.

            Politicians lie, and the Israelis are the children of Satan. However, I’m not convinced that the U$ will bail from Syria. Syria is too good a position from which to spread our fertilizer, and poison. Besides, the U$ can’t allow peace to break out in the Middle East; it’s bad for business.

          • Sinbad2

            Yes, all wars are about money.
            LBJ sold most of Americas gold reserves, to support the dollar, when Nixon came to power, the cupboard was bare.
            Nixon had to default on the gold for dollars pledge, at the time he said it was temporary, but since that time the US has printed money at a staggering rate, and that debasement of the currency is about to bring the US undone.
            War is staggeringly expensive, and the US can’t afford to be continuously at war.
            Notice how most of the carrier task groups are in port?
            The same thing happened just before the collapse of the Soviet Union.

        • Nixon was gone by the time the 1975 NVA Spring Offensive began. Watergate was tiddly winks compared to the Obama Hillzebub corruption of the government and weaponizing of the Alphabet Soup agencies.

  • Drogba

    They are just rotating their forces,just like any Army would do,.What’s the big deal?Russia is not going to leave it’s forces in SYRIA weak and incapable of defending itself.This is organised well in advance by the Russian military.

  • Empire’s Frontiers

    This seems likely to be another troop rotation.

    The mission has been evolving and the needs changing. From the requirements for sappers and MPs to the need for pilots and mechanics, things have changed as success has been logged.

    With criminal violence perpetrated by the jihadist factions subsiding, tense diplomacy and civilian construction will flow.

    The Russians ability and need for rotating and recomposing their forces in the region indicates the worst and most hopeless situation for the vanquished jihadis; that is another victory of the Syrian people.

    • ابوعبدالله العراقي

      Wrong, all of that cost them enormous money and they simply don’t have that big budget to continue all of this at such scale. The propaganda effect of this involvement is wearing off and so is their motivation.

  • RamboDave

    Why would Russia announce this withdrawal? It sounds to me like they have already made a deal, apparently with Israel. The removal of the aircraft is just a good faith move on Russia’s part.

    The goal of Israel is to isolate Iran, and get Iran and their proxies out of Syria, and partition Syria along the Euphrates. The goal of Russia is to reduce US sanctions on it and normalize it’s takeover of Crimea and Eastern Ukraine.

    Since Israel and it’s fifth column neocons, like John Bolton, control the US, the deal will be worked out at the Trump-Putin summit next month.

    The deal also includes the following: …. Russia will make sure Iran and it’s proxies stay well away from the Golan, the SAA will not get an upgrade on their air defenses, and Russia will become a neutral observer East of the Euphrates. In exchange, Israel will call off it’s anti Russian neocon dog pack within the US, Russia will rejoin the G-8, Crimea will be downplayed or forgotten about in the Zionists controlled Western media.
    Trump, just last week, has already called for Russia to be re-admitted into the G-8.

    Here below is the President speaking to Americans, who must obey him at all times.

    • Sinbad2

      The deal will have been made with the US, it’s the US that has deserted its terrorists in southern Syria.

      • RamboDave

        True … the US has deserted it’s rebels in Southern Syria. But, you seem to be forgetting that it is Israel and it’s Gulf State allies that have been funding the Jihadist since before 2011. Israel is running the show. Israel’s Project for New American Century set forth the regime change plan in 1998 for 7 ME Countries. The Iraq war in 2003 was stage one – totally created and directed by Israel.

        The US only got into the Syria game in 2012, and only then because it was Israel’s plan already being implemented and Obama could not resist the neocons.

        Israel has run the show through it’s neocon fifth column in the US from the beginning.

    Wouldn’t withdraw anything until Southern Syria is cleared & E Euphrates settled w/ America.

    • Sinbad2

      If the US once again breaks its agreement to leave Syria, the Russians will come back.
      But this time I think the US is done, their economy is collapsing, and they can’t even afford new bombs or missiles.

  • Tudor Miron

    I would advise to not buy into this too much. It happened before but head choppers were way too quick to selebrate. Better whatch what happens on the ground – Syrian map turning red on daily basis.

    Once again I ask SF moderators to clear that terrorist scum that is infesting this comments section.

    • BMWA1

      Rotation.

    • Much more fun to laugh at the hasbara, globalist and neo-con trolls!

    • frankly

      Here, here, what now we give the forum to ISIS chicks to propagate their pro EU nonsense? We all know if you don’t pledge anti Assad you may as well go home, rule #1!

      Purge all the guest responses it makes for a non read.

      Interesting long game. Head choppers to Europe, rational folks keep Syria.

      So as the finals of cup wind down, then we get another NATO sponsored chemical false flag?

      Oh as for withdrawal, practiced logistical exercise. Think of it as a leave to take in the cup games.

  • Why?

    • Sinbad2

      Because they have won, America has surrendered.

      • And east of the Euphrates?

        • Sinbad2

          In time, it’s all about appearences, they will set up others, then move out. The others, French Kurds etc will surrender, and America, at least in the eyes of the American people, will remain undefeated.
          BS is a very powerful weapon in the hands of Governments.

    “27 Aircraft, 1,140 Personnel Withdrawn From Syria Over Past Days: Putin”
    Well… Putin means he won the war.. Only ASSAD didn’t, but who cares about such small details, if Israel is pleased?

  • Harvey Swinestein

    Brilliant move by Putin. It looks good to the Russian public and also reconfirms Russia’s motives in Syria for the EU. Makes it look like Russia only wanted to stabilize the situation, as opposed to the US agenda, which appears to have no constructive or altruistic purpose. Meanwhile, there will be a whole new batch of troops and military equipment quietly sent into Syria to replace the ones that are currently leaving..lol

  • RichardD

    Shoygu and crew are clearly highly competent. Putin doesn’t have time to run a war. But he put the right people in place to do it. Up to this point it’s been an outstanding success. The rest of the Syrian government coalition also deserve a lot of success.

  • SurfaceBook

    It is hilarious when hasbara trolls pretend to be arabic and islamist , but they forgot to change account and these ‘arabic’ or ‘islamist’ hasbaras upvote the resident hasbara ‘smaug’ posts..

    talk about exposing your scam right away

    • Joe Dirt

      Don’t forget me! Proud hasbara! I hope Russia will take in the 6.5 million Syrians displaced since 2015.

      • SurfaceBook

        these hasbara trolls are manned by people who have no other job options due to their low education / low intelligence or disreputable / criminal record. They are paid per post , not by their post quality but by their post number. It is safe to assume these people who make a living by lying and insulting people , are mentally unstable..

        we see the result when these people unleashed on unarmed protester in gaza , they shot unarmed people with laughter and joy..

        it is different case when the opponents are armed like the hezbollah , these cowards would disobey order and mutinied rather than face enemy fire.

        • Joe Dirt

          Poor assumption…

    remember folks , the goal of hasbara group tasked here in SF is to disrupt the comment section and injecting their usual narrative lies , such as :

    – assad evil
    – russia scared of israel
    – putin bow before bibi
    – russia/putin allow israeli to bomb syria with impunity
    – russia abandon it’s allies (syria/iran)
    – IDF is the ‘bestest’ miltary in middle east
    – ISIS is better than Assad

    • ابوعبدالله العراقي

      I don’t know what is hasbara but at least you said the truth below. You twisted it like it is different from that but it does not. Assad is evil – proven. Russia scared of Israel – proven. Russia abandon it’s allies – proven in history, IDF is the bestest military in the middle east – what?, ISIS is better than Assad – much better taking into consideration pure Islamic form of government and the lack of targeted civilian warfare.

    • Joe Dirt

      People who insist upon deceiving themselves disgust me. Anyone who blocks out the key relevant facts and persists in believing the lies they were raised with, or became fooled into believing, doesn’t harm only themselves by the lies they believe.

      • SurfaceBook

        Look at how the ‘arabic’ poster upvoted this hasbara .. in fact the so called ‘arabic’ poster is just another hasbara pretending to be islamist. The basic SOP of hasbara always pretend to be anti israel , anti zionist , anti west , all to establish credentiality.

        after his credential gone , all he do now is post insults and nonsense , to inflate his post count as it is tied to his KPI and payroll..

    • Joe Dirt

      1. Assad is Evil
      2.Russia is scared of Israel (Russia has never gone on a major offensive war(alone) outside of Russia.
      3. Russia/Putin allow Israel to bomb Syria…this is true
      4. Russia abandon it’s allies (syria/iran) YES YES YES
      5. IDF is the BEST military in the M.E…YES YES YES
      6.ISIS is better than Assad, well depends on which muzzy you ask, I am not a Muslim, so I don’t care. I don’t like any Muslims

      • ابوعبدالله العراقي

        I think even if people don’t like ISIS or islam they can agree that Assad is worse than anything out of there, there is clear proof of bombing his towns with grads, killing civilians by barrel bombs and clearly targeting civilian districts and hospitals. http://i.imgur.com/01KQyAd.jpg

        • ابوعبدالله العراقي

          Small proof of how the Assad fights his own people who are “terrorists” https://youtu.be/oNLJZgS1baU Yet the apologists say that the missiles are designed to avoid civilians, that there are not civilians only terrorists etc…

        look at this hasbara post , the only thing left after being exposed is to endlessly insult and continue his ignorant / nonsense post.. Why he do that ? because all who worked in israeli IO (information Ops) are paid by post number , not by the quality of the post.

        and one can deduce how stable their mental state , having to lie and insult people day by day as their day job.. see the result when these people shot unarmed civilian protesters in gaza with glee and laughter..

    • Sinbad2

      Yep, but the one thing they can’t hide is,

  • Didn’t Putin announce that Russia was leaving Syria in 2017? This is just routine rotation of forces. It does entertain the “Hate Putin/Hate Russia” trolls though who will make posts telling us Putin is in league with Netanyahu, Trump, Satan, Sauron, Emperor Palpatine and the Klingon Empire.

  • World_Eye

    Why all saying not good sign blah blah, if Russia leaves it’s troops home that’s a good sign LOL, that means the Government of Assad if in power, and can handle most of the situation. The ISIS threat is not present anymore as it was and Russia can go home, Russia was there to fight Daesh, not to get along in Syria’s internal problems with the opposition and others. Syria is much capable now to fight anyone it’s country including Al-Qaeda/HTS, so what you want more from Russia, Russia came finished Daesh together with SAA and now it’s not needed directly in the conflict. They said that they will have permanent base there, now they can influence indirectly who they want from home or from the permanent base there.
    As far the Zionists I don’t hear or see anything they did last time, they are so quiet so of course there was some deal between Putin and Netanyahu for that matter, you can hear the US saying to South Syria HTS and FSA, that you don’t count on us. So now on July 16th Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump will have their summit, so the things are going on better. For more better news inside in Syria I guess will have to wait after the summit of RU and US next month. Al-Qaeda in Syria is not good for no one.
