30 Foreign Intelligence Officers (Israeli, US, Turkish) Killed in Missile Attack in Aleppo - Unconfirmed

Reports have been appearing in various pro-government media outlets since September 20 that some Russian warships, deployed in Syria’s coastal waters, hit with missiles a foreign-led military operations room near Aleppo city, killing 30 Israeli, US, Turkish, Saudi, Qatari and British officers.

The military operations room was allegedly located in the western part of Aleppo province in the middle of Sam’an mountain. It was set up by foreign intelligence services in order to coordinate operations of various militant group against the Syrian government forces in the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib.

Most of the pro-government media outlets cites the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency as a main source of the information.

According to AlMasdarNews:

“Russian warships fired caliber rockets onto the command posts of the terrorists in western Aleppo, where Turkish, Saudi, Israeli, UK, and US officers are deployed to aid their operations,” Sputnik News Agency reported on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Iranian Fars News Agency believes that it was on Wednesday:

“The Russian warships fired three Caliber missiles at the foreign officers’ coordination operations room in Dar Ezza region in the Western part of Aleppo near Sam’an mountain, killing 30 Israeli and western officers,” the Arabic-language service of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted battlefield source in Aleppo as saying on Wednesday.

While there are no doubts that various ‘opposition’ and terrorist groups in Syria are trained, supplied and managed by foreign intelligence services (mostly US, Turkish and Saudi), the pro-government sources have not provided video or photo evidences in order to confirm this report. The Russian Ministry of Defense has not commented on the issue.

    I find it hard to believe that Israelis or U.S. officers would be located anywhere near Aleppo since neither military is directing air strikes in that area against R+6. Farsnews is on a par with the Jerusalem Post in terms of sensationalistic stories.

    This feels like a story geared towards boosting morale after the Deir Ezzor massacre. It’s possible that Turkish troops could have been in the area. If the Russians had intelligence that such a location existed, I’d put it at 50 / 50 that they’d orchestrate an attack of this nature. They could claim plausible deniability since no U.S. personnel are not supposed to be in the area and we in the U.S. have been building up some real bad Karma for a while now. However, this story seems off to me.

    • chris chuba

      When I say that we in the U.S. have been building some bad Karma, let me clarify. We have been almost happy to see Russians killed by proxy. However, Putin is not the petty sort, he would not do this unless it served an actual purpose.
      1. Georgia 2008.
      2. The Turkish downing of the Russian Jet by a U.S. made F15 and our diplomatic support for Turkey.
      3. About a dozen Russians have been killed in Syria, at least one confirmed kill by a U.S. made TOW anti-tank missile on a helicopter. How many more kills by U.S. made weapons? Don’t know. Morell’s comments don’t help and seem to echo a wider sentiment in U.S. intelligence and military circles.

      We have a bunch of loons in the U.S. that don’t take war seriously.

      • John Whitehot

        2. it was a F-16
        3. Jihadists have had plenty of TOW missiles since years. But there is no “confirmed kill” from an helicopter, state your source otherwise it’s a falsity. Also, in all likeness, at least three US servicemen have been killed by the Turkish army in clashes with the kurds. The news was over some medias last week, and it’s confirmed their coffins reached the US city of Chicago some day of that week. Erdogan was later commenting that the 3 US soldiers were terrorists and that the US should not honor them.

        • chris chuba

          2. Okay, F-16 but still a U.S. made plane. We go ballistic at the mere thought of U.S. serviceman being killed in Iraq with any material support by Iran. Perhaps the Russians have similar feelings.

          3. When the Su-24 was shot down, another Russian was killed trying to rescue one of the pilots piloting a helicopter after being shot by a TOW missile. I thought that this was well established. Also, I thought that it was highly suspected that the helicopter shot down in Idlib this year was also downed by a TOW. All TOW’s are manufactured in the U.S. so even if they get there through an intermediary like Turkey or the Saudis it might tick off the Russians.

          If we were upset by this usage of TOWs we would stop the Saudis and Turks from supplying them much like we were able to get them to not supply MANPADs to the rebels. However, it seems like the rebels do have MANPADs.

        • Jacek Wolski

          They where not full time US servicemen, but US volunteers. Just like Russian volunteers in Ukraine fighting in that theatre of war.

          • Sinbad2

            Most US forces that see combat are mercenaries these days.
            They do their time in the military, and then go private for one of the many mercenary companies that operate out of the US and UK.
            They don’t get any Government benefits, or medals, but they still work for Uncle Sham, as contractors.

            Colombia has been complaining that the US Government has been poaching so many Columbian soldiers to fight in Yemen that the Columbian army is being diminished.

      • tom

        This Kalibr strike, if true, looks like a good start towards making them take war seriously. “You kill our people, we kill your people. But we kill YOUR people”.

    • John Whitehot

      foreign officers are not deployed only to direct airstrikes. Actually, they could be involved in the planning phase of the jihadist operations, which is very likely as the headchoppers lack any significant capability in producing high level commanders. All the evidence points to a sort of unified command structure that comprises ISIS, Al-Nusra and Al-Sham, alongside those who’re called FSA and others. It’s pretty clear that the jihadist forces have always coordinating their efforts at operational level, and for that to happen, it’s mandatory that some competent people direct them. It could be Turkish and Saudis, but excluding Israeli and western being in the same war rooms wouold be extremely naive.

  • Marco

    If true, this action could be seen as a revenge for the bombing in Deir ez-Zor, where probably also some russian special forces have been eliminated. In this case the Kremlin preferred not to make public the loss of these men, opting instead for a strike into the operation room. An eye for an eye, as said below…

    • jj

      It is not enough revenge, as it is only 30 foreigners/invaders in Syria. Having 100 soldiers killed in your own country by outsiders calls for a much larger revenge than 30.

      • Ronald

        Has the mountain overlooking the airport of Deir ez-Zor been retaken by the SAA ? Have heard reports ISIS still holds it , meaning supplies can not be brought into the city. This does sound like a bit of propaganda , although you can get lucky .

      • sagbotgamot

        if true, russia just hit high value target…

      • Marco

        Well, these are all assumptions, but in this case what makes the difference are the value of the target and the political meaning, not the sheer numbers.

      If true, it’s justice for the 62 who died for a “mistake.”

    All of you are speculating. Even if it happened the degenerates in the West would never admit the loss. From my perspective it would be good for the arrogants goons to take a loss.

    • trid2bnrml

      They would not want to admit they were there plotting against Assad in the first place.

    WHY DOES RUSSIA USE CRUISE MISSILES IN SYRIA?

    I learnt something new today! Evidently Kalibr missiles are used to target NATO assets. The deconfliction rules agreed with the US mean that Russian airplanes cannot strike any target where they even suspect Americans are present. If they did, the U.S. would be forced to start shooting down Russian planes. The same applies to U.S. planes, they are not allowed to target Russians or Syrians, not even by mistake.

    The deconfliction rules do not prevent Russia from striking US assets with cruise missiles that are launched fro outside Syria. Shooting down Russian planes “in revenge” would be an escalation and forbidden. It would serve no purpose of self-defense, as the Russian planes are not threatening the Americans.

    One can naturally ask why do Americans not use cruise missiles to hit Russians and Syrians? They already did on August 31, 2013, but were stopped at the last moment by the Russian Navy. Today Russia has even firmer control over the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea. The Persian Gulf is also excluded as a launch site, as U.S. ships attacking Syria would be targeted by Iranian land-based anti-ship missiles.

    ***

    At first I thought the story and the reference to Sputnik was a hoax, but here is the story in Arabic: (I cannot find this anywhere in English)

    صواريخ “كاليبر” استهدفت قيادات عسكرية أجنبية في ديرة عزة بمحافظة حلب

    “According to the source field of the province of Aleppo, that the three rockets from Caliber kind launched by the Russian ships that recently targeted operations room for terrorists in Dera Izzat west of Aleppo in the Mount Simon, which is famous for the harsh nature of the mountainous and contains ancient caves area.

    The source for “Sputnik”, the operations room with 30 leading officers of the Turkish and the US and Saudi Arabia and Qatar and the British army and the Mossad, running terrorist operations in Aleppo and Idlib.” (via Google translate)

    • Jens Holm

      Some godd guesses, but also a lot of something else.

      Its a Nato operation in Syria, so why should both hangarships go close to Basra or what.

      Brits has a base at Cypres and all west of that is Nato. Then You have outside Israel as well. This is no russians syrian territory if it comes to firing some tomahaws or worse.

      You also forget US and Nato has a relativly heavy build up in Iraq and at Incirlik.

      They were not stopped by russian navy at all and also could reduce the russian airforce back to Mig 23`s any time. There are other reasons.

      • phreezerburn

        What? Even the US military boards talk about Russia having deployed weapons systems the US would very much like to see confirmed as in play. The Russians are far from being out gunned.

    • jj

      U.S. should not be in Syria at all. It is violating Syria’s sovereignty and helping terrorists and invaders.

    • janarddan

      If US targets Russia in Syria the next step will be to target US in US, Turkey in Turkey and Israel in Israel. In that Russia will not be alone, China will have joined by that time. RATO will have its swan song even before its terrorist offspring will have.

    • 888mladen .

      Firs of all it was not a cruise missile. It was a ballistic missile launched from NATO base in Spain. Go to WT website and check it.

    • solipsist

      >One can naturally ask why do Americans not use cruise missiles to hit Russians and Syrians?

      Stopped by the Russian Navy, land based anti ship missiles, and S-300 SAM batteries. The US militaries outdated cruise missiles are simply incapable of striking targets in Syria.

    President Putin and FM Lavrov have tried repeatedly to enlist Obama and Kerrry in the war against ISIS.
    Obama and Kerry refuse and sabotage every effort to defeat radical Islam.
    Why?
    Because Obama and Kerry want radical Islam to conquer Syria.
    It is time for Russia to take off the gloves and declare that ALL foreign forces in Syria without the permission of the Damascus government are legitimate targets and will be attacked.
    If America wants to escalate the war Russia can always destroy Riyadh and Ankara.

    • Jens Holm

      1) As long as You – rapport be rapport – cant even see US/Nata has reduced ISIS during 4 years – its very well documented at these and many other sites – its pure shit You are comming with.
      ¨
      2) They have figting ISIS by kurds. They are much more sekular than Assads. So much for being blind to the knees even its also true,there are some support to radikals.

      And NO. Can only see Assad during many years has done very dirty things to thise, which also should be an equal prat of Syria and has done it as a despotic tribe leader – not a president of Syria.

      Russia to take the hat off ??? Ha-ha. Better with sunglasses and Hijab.

      And remember bombing Damaskus and Ankara wiill make other places to stoneage too.

      If Your beloved Assads had resigned in stead of getting the leadership as a tribeleader, there would be a very big diffrence and those extremist wasnt there – at least only few of them. When You attack incl. gas and artillery strikes at Your own peple the ones, who are not afraid to die, will be in the fronline – Thats the extremist. You grow them and Turks too.

    • trid2bnrml

      That would serve Riyadh and Ankara right!

    • Rob

      The US is already bombing ISIS, wake up dummy.

      • Doctor Who?

        Then how come ISIS was almost ready to take over Damascus last year until the Russians intervened?
        If America is so dead set against terrorists, why is it aiding Al Nusra Front
        Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate?

        • Rob

          Just because the US is bimbing ISIS does not mean ISIS cannot make progress. Are you really that stupid?

          There are literally dozens of anti government forces in Syria and not all of them have ties to ISIS. The US was supporting moderate groups, not ISIS.

          • Doctor Who?

            There are no moderate rebels in Syria.
            They are all Islamic terrorists backed by the evil Obama regime.
            The only true moderate in Syria is President Bashir al Assad who never attacked America, tolerates Christians and was elected in a free and fair election with 80% of the vote.

            The terrorists can call themselves ISIS, Al Qaeda, Al Nusra Front, Free Syria Army or any name they choose this week, they are all proxy armies for the Muslim terrorist who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

            If Obama’s military interferes with Russia in the purging of Islamic terrorists from Syria, then Obama’s soldiers deserve to be wiped out to the last man and Obama’s capitol deserves to be vaporized.

            I have no doubt you don’t even know or understand how the war in Syria started. I’m sure you have absolutely zero knowledge of the history either.

            You don’t know the difference between the Free Syrian Army and the Free Idlib Army.

            In other words, you are an ignorant simpleton.

          • Doctor Who?

            I know Syria never attacked America and any effort by Obama to overthrow the Syrian government is a war crime.

          • Rob

            It’s not a war crime to supply weapons to any group.

            Not only do you not understand the war in Syria but you don’t understand internatiinal law either.

          • Doctor Who?

            Hillary Clinton supplied Sarin Gas — a nerve gas — to the Syrian rebels according to journalist Seymour Hersh.
            That is a war crime and Hillary Clinton should be tried and hanged.

          • Doctor Who?

            According to Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh,
            Hillary Clinton approved sending Sarin gas — Nerve Gas — from Libya to the Syrian Rebels.

            Moreover, launching an unprovoked war of aggression, even through a proxy army of terrorists, is a war crime meriting a Nuremberg style trial and Nuremberg style punishments.

            Providing weapons is not a war crime and neither is a proxy war. Your article addresses preemptive or preventative war and it is not at all relevant to the Syrian war.

            In addition, many legal scholars believe that preventative/preemptive war can be legal under Article 51 when supported by the Caroline incident, Sofaer’s four elements, and Walzer’s 3 elements.

            Furthermore, the actions by the US in Syria does not even qualify as a war of aggression.

            Not one thing you have said is remotely correct.

          • Rob

            Regarding Seymour Hersh: he has repeatedly been accused of providing stories with zero sources to support his claims.

            A quote about Hersh:

            “Bryan G. Whitman said, “This reporter has a solid and well-earned reputation for making dramatic assertions based on thinly sourced, unverifiable anonymous sources.”

            His sources are not reliable in many cases.

          • Doctor Who?

            Hersh’s narratives are more trustworthy than Obama’s narratives.

          • Rob

            Neither one has any credibility.

          • Doctor Who?

            Then why follow Obama, Hillary and Kerry into World War 3 over Syria?

          • Rob

            That’s an overreaction.

          • Rob

            Btw, a state of war does not even exist between the US and Syria.

            No international laws have been violated, zero.

            The only laws violated have been violated by the Assad regime.

          • Doctor Who?

            If no state of war exists between the US and Syria, then the US has no business interfering in Syria’s internal affairs.

    Get the genocidal secret services out of Syria including Israeli agents. According to news sources and government propagandists no Jews were left in Aleppo. So these secret service red flag event causing secret agents are only armed mainly with the insane foreign policy of Israel, and the United states and NATO. They are up to no good and calling for the total destruction of Syria a form of perverse insanity by their leaders who say they want to help the moderate terrorists overthrow Assafd. . WTF are you all insane ? There is no such thing as a moderate terrorist and what your doing is supporting the cause of ISIS in the region by alleging you are fighting ISIS and Assad at the same time . Your freaking crazy Nazi like sadists, with that mentality locked up, validated only in the back rooms of those profiting on misery and warfare. America has become an oppressor nation a predator only interested in blowing nations up not walking away from all these terrible plans, and insane strategies to destroy entire nations. Than charge your victims to rebuild them.No good sane general on earth wound ever take credit for Americas failed Mideast foreign policy or the lies, the persistent red flag events by Western intelligence agencies, that started all these terrible wars where their leaders and propagandized mainstream news refuses to question their mad men leading them to implode much like Germany, and Rome before them . Stop the insanity . . . .
