IRGC Denies Any Iranian Position In Damascus Were Hit In Recent Israeli Attack

No Iranian positions around Damascus were struck in the recent Israeli attack on the Syrian capital, Maj. Gen. Mohsen Rezaee, a senior Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander, told the Iranian Labour News Agency (ILNA) on August 25.

“This is a lie and not true … Israel and the United States do not have the power to attack Iran’s various centers, and our (military) advisory centers have not been harmed,” the semi-official news agency quoted the IRGC commander as saying.

Late on August 24, Israeli warplanes struck several military positions in the vicinity of the town of Aqraba south of Damascus.

The Israeli military said that it had targeted positions of the IRGC’s Quds Force and affiliated units, who were preparing to launch several armed drones at its positions.

According to initial reports, fighters of Hezbollah were killed in the Israeli airstrikes. However, it remains unclear if any IRGC service members were also killed or injured. Both Iran and Hezbollah vowed to respond to any attack on their troops in Syria.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    This is for domestic mullah audience to save face. The FACT is that Zionist scum with impunity have been killing Iranians for years in Syria and Iran itself, where many nuclear scientists were blown up by limpet bombs and Iran did fuckall. Such cowardice will only invite a major attack.

    For two years now, Israel has been the only country in the world killing Iranians,” the Likud minister said. “We have hit the Iranians hundreds of times and they have shown to resolve to challenge our might”.

    • Rhodium 10

      Lies stupid troll!…Israel only have killed 7 Iranians during an attack to T4 airbase…then Iran retaliate launching 55 rockets vs israeli military assets…of course israel military ban every image posted where show damage in his military!

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Don’t take in out on me kiddo :) for stating FACTS, the fucking mullahs are disgraceful big mouth and no balls cowards.

        Exclusive: Why Iran’s Intervention in Syria Proved so Costly
        From January 2013 to March 2017, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps lost 2,100 soldiers in Syria and 9,000 wounded, according to Iran’s veterans’ affairs office.
        Location: Syria and Lebanon

          these shia have won the Syrian war and the Iraq war defeated ISIS and Al qaeda!..SAA and Iraqi army are useless.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Son, Iraq is occupied by Americunts since 2003 and Syria is carved up by the Turkeys, Americunts and Zionists. All this hollow talk is no substitute for a real fight back. I am sure it is embarrassing for all you kids to watch the Arabs and Iranians humiliated every day. There is old saying, it is better to die as a lion in one day than live as jackal for a thousand.

          • Rhodium 10

            the only humiliate everyday are saudis…Patriot missile failed to stop continous drones and ballistic missile attacks..also they dont use Abrams tanks because ATGM destroy them!

  • verner

    iran should prepare a final assault on the squatters and finish them off – they have every right to do so. so cross your fingers and hope the final demise of the squatters is in the near future. guess however that the syrian war, instigated by the squatters through their obedient servants, the dysfunctional states of america, will have to be over before the squatters future will be on the table. meanwhile support the bds-movement and voice any anti-zionist agenda permissible.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The fucking squatters as you call them are weaker than a spiders web and are strutting on Americunt weaponry and the cowardice of their enemies. The Zionist child killers simply do have the strategic mass to fight an indefinite asymmetrical war, especially on the ground that is a meat grinder as Syria has recently shown. But the real issue is that the Syrians, Iranians, Iraqis and even Hezbollah have refused to fight back that has only emboldened the Zionists. These attacks will get worse if there is no retaliation. It is simply mind boggling why the Syrians and even Hezbollah won’t fight back.

      • Rhodium 10

        thats a nonsese…Israel only do what USA want…it is to attack SAA to provoke a war between them to distract Idlib offensive because each terrorist defeat is also a defeat for their Godparents ( Israel,USA,Turkey,Saudi Arabia)…

        • Zionism = EVIL

          It is the other way around kiddo :) the Zionists are the rabid dog that wags the Americunt tail. Only because the Arabs and Persians are cowards and don’t hit back. 6 million so-called Jews daily humiliate 500 million Arabs, Turks and Persians. Mostly because the corrupt dumb fuckers fight each other all the time as the Zionists and the Americunts use good time tested imperialist formula of DIVIDE & RULE.

          • Rhodium 10

            Iran coward?..ask to US&Britain…2 petrol vessels captured and one Global hawk shot down…Hezbollah have retaliate 3 times…4 IDF soldiers death in ATGN attack, 2 IDF soldiers wounded IED attack…55 rockets launched…wait because coming soon will be a response!

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I hope you are right for your own sake and high hopes. I am not certain. Iranians have been hit repeatedly by Zionists at home and in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon and done fuckall so far. Hezbollah has a better record but is hamstrung by the Saudi puppet Hariri who is an agent of CIA and MOSSAD. The Sunni goat fuckers in Lebanon along with the corrupt Maronites are both with the Zionists, so Hezbollah without Syrian and Iranian full support can not do much.

          • Rhodium 10

            Hezbollah will respond coming soon….

          • Zionism = EVIL

            I will take my hat off then, because believe me if they don’t the Zionists will attack harder next time. It is Lebanon’s sovereign right to defend itself. The armed Zionist drone attack is outright aggression and the Russian fucks will not even let the UNSC debate this attack.

          • verner

            zionism=evil is most likely an israeli troll in disguise always belittling russia, iran and syria. thus ignore!!

  • Peter Jennings

    The isreali regime is certainly pushing their luck. They are also pushing just about every country around them into retaliation, or risk losing their land. Let’s hope that one day these countries do not get together and deal with the problem of the every increasing isreal. On second thoughts, maybe that is the only way to prevent the isreali regime causing trouble throughout the region.

    The isreali regime hasn’t stopped its warmongering and land theft since they arrived in Palestine, courtesy of the British, and it now hides behind american totalitarian protection. What happens when one day america can no longer help their favourite regime?
    That day is surely coming.

    The isreali people will only have themselves to blame by allowing their paranoid right-wing nutjobs to roam free, hover up gov’t titles, much like many wannabe dictators of banana republics do, and continually attack their neighbours calling it the defence of isreal.

    Lots of luck for the future.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The problem is that the Zionists have very low opinion of Arabs as irrational, emotional, uneducated primitive cowards as subsequent Arab defeats have shown, but were not sure about Persians as the Shah had given Iran a fake aura of strength with vast western weapons purchases, the fucking dimwit mullahs are even worse than the Arabs in cowardice and got Iran involved in the Syrian mess and then failed to retaliate as the Zionists keep on killing the Iranians with impunity and this will get much worse.

      • Peter Jennings

        So what went wrong with the fight against Hezbollah?

        • Jens Holm

          Nothing has gone wrong fighting Hesbollah. They has upgraded themelves well. But I dont see them attack Israel.

          • Free man

            The Cowardly Iranians may order Hezbollah to respond and thus give Netanyahu the war he wants.

            Iranian do not order Hezbollah. Iran supports Hezbollah. That is big difference. Do not spread misinformation. If Iran or Hezbollah wanted escalation it would be started just after 2006.

          • Peter Jennings

            The isreali regime had to run to america to save them from their last mistake of sending IDF into Lebanon? that’s after they car bombed the main american base there and blamed it on just about everyone else.

      • Jens Holm

        Thats not correct at all. “Some of You araps are like that bad rap music and has continiued even being more or less indeopendent since WW1.

        You were not even able to liberate Yourself. You schould wonder about that. Well, You should not wonder – All is very well described by the whole world and its NO CHANGE.

        You hardky has rhetorics for peace, but war and all has to make respeckt and honor as in fx Syria is true. Iraq = same thing. Yemen, Sudan, Afghanistan, Pakistan a.s.o.

        You dont recognize human rights as any option. Most women not even get the rights by Sharia.

        The worst is, You cant even take any good parts from the rest of the world because Your structures are infected by NO TRUST amiong each other and the upper class such as Baathists are ollowed to steal and destroy in corruption.

        I have been writing here for a while. Everything like that is TABU, TABU, TABU and everybody else, which You are only alowed toknow in a dirty biased way showing our worst parts, by definion, are Haram or worse.

    • Jens Holm

      They are not pushing their luck. They systematicly has done like that since 1948. Its a usual routine like cutting gras in the park.

      So they should do as the enemies like You prefare ? Hahhahahahah.

    • Saso Mange

      For years i was actively saying that Israel has to make concessions and deals with it’s neighbors because aggression is not working, obviously. They could take over Palestine because Palestine was disarmed and Zionist corporate, terrorist and mafia groups had easy job to steal the land. Every other nation – Israel could not do anything to their territory except Golan and Sheeba farms but that area is still under possible change. When faced with stronger armies they always lose, just like they lost in Lebanon (check Winograd commission).
      For years i also expected that sane minds will prevail and that even Israeli officials want to make final peace and make security for their people. But i was a fool. Israel doesn’t want peace and when hell breaks loose and Zionist Israel gets destroyed i won’t really cry, i might throw a party instead!
      They had time to change but they have chosen their path, path of terror, long time ago.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      I feel sorry for them, they are untrained religious peasants from rural Iran and the stupid mullahs have sent them to die in Syria without any air defence systems, modern weapons or training. Iranian military was devastated after the revolution and the illiterate pot bellied thieving mullahs sent kids with made in Taiwan plastic keys with images of the goat fucker Khomeni in human waves against modern Iraqi armor and air power in the 1980’s and are now doing the same in Syria. You are right, its is worse than an embarrassment. They should send the devious geriatric retard Khamenei and the pot bellied pimp Rouhani to the Golan.

      • shayan

        friend if you believe the story about keys in war against iraq based on error in translating name of a preying book called ((keys of heaven)) its obvious about the other true and lie stories better to update a little about that war…..iran today can destroy the most advanced UAVs bu iranian maid air defense system and US wont dare to retaliate . can make its own weapons can win war in syria against almost entire world just like what it did in war against sadam and stopped and even pushed back strongest arab army etc…..hezbollah the who did amazing job in the region or during 2006 is just one of their proxies.

      • Swift Laggard II

        i think you are right. without even taking sides just from basic strategy, failure to retaliate emboldens your opponent, as they realize they can kill your men at no cost. i think the persians got in way over their heads here. What i also fail to understand is what is the purpose of their n00k programe? they already said they will not produce n00ks so why is the iranian nation suffering horrible sanctions for a useless programme? if they do not need the stuff they should just sit down with the us one on one in a bilateral arrangement and hammer out a deal – f*ck the rest. why should iran people suffer to attain unattainable goals?

    Bloodbath coming soon for the american imbeciles in iraq!!!!

    TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iraqi legislator and member of Asa’eb al-Haq Movement affiliated to Hashd al-Shaabi called on the American forces to withdraw from the country as soon as possible, warning of attacks against them.
    Hossein Salem in a statement quoted by the Arabic-language website of Russia Today asked the Iraqi government to pressure the US forces to leave Iraq soon.
    He also warned of the imminent adoption of the military option against the US troops if they remain adamant to a pullout from Iraq.
    “If the Americans do not leave, they will be within the range of the Islamic Resistance’s weapons and their embassy, consulate and centers will be targeted first and we do not accept any pretext from them. We neither want training, nor support and military advisors,” Salem said.
    His remarks came after a leading Shiite Muslim cleric followed by a large number of Iraqi people issued a public religious fatwa forbidding the presence of US troops in Iraq.
    The fatwa issued Friday by Grand Ayatollah Kazem al-Haeri came after Hashd al-Shaabi in Iraq accused the US of being behind recent attacks on their bases and weapons depots in Iraq.
    Two US officials have confirmed that Israel was responsible for the bombing of a weapons depot in Iraq on July 19.
    Ayatollah Haeri called on the Iraqi armed forces to “resist and confront the enemy”.

    Israeli warplanes carry out mock bombing raids over Lebanon’s Sidon – reports
    Published time: 25 Aug, 2019 08:16

    Follow RT on
    Israeli warplanes reportedly carried out mock bombing raids over the Lebanese city of Sidon following Israeli Defense Forces attacks on “Iranian targets” in neighboring Syria.
    Lebanon’s National News Agency is reporting that Israeli jets flew at a low altitude over the country’s third largest city, which is approximately 40km south of the capital Beirut.
    The reported raids follow a flurry of Israeli activity in Lebanon and neighboring Syria. In the early hours of Sunday morning, an explosion hit a southern suburb of Beirut in what Hezbollah labeled an “Israeli drone attack.”

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Zionists if there is no retaliation are now so bold that they will attack Lebanon and also Iran. Weakness begets aggression as I have posted from day one. The dumbass mullahs and their empty boasts have now put Iran in a bind, Hezbollah is not look that good either.

    Talking of Iran, it is interesting how events are turning out, with regards the G7 summit. Guess lessons were learnt from last year, when to say it was a disaster, would be an understatement.

    Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif Unexpectedly Arrives in Biarritz, France Amid G7 Summit… https://sputniknews.com/world/201908251076636028-iranian-government-plane-lands-in-biarritz-france-hosting-g7-summit—reports/

    There is an article over on the Daily Mail, with regards Trump laughing at the animation of the conversation, when they spoke about Russia being invited back. Not that Russia would wish to join up with the G7 horros. Funny how somebody has spent a lot of money. paying ‘Integrity Initiative’ trolls, to man the DM comments section. I wonder why?

    • Jens Holm

      You seemes not to see, that EU are much more mioderate according to Iran and well as Russia.

      It makes me laugh that You tell G7 is a horror for Russia. They need fair prices for import and export and fair trade as well. We all do. Thats why organisations like that are important for all.

      The main problem for Russians are, they dint follow the rules, which also demand respect for other nations. So Russia are on own turf done by itself even telling, they not even want G7 joining.
      An Trump. How can You even use him as source…next day east is west or not even there :)

      • AM Hants

        The G7 nations, are the declining nations, unlike the other 13 members, which make up the G20. So why would Russia wish to join the bores? When more business and trade can be done with the G13 members of the G20? Without even including trade between the BRICS and SCO members?

          The usual stupidisme argumantations. I see no declining, but things do change among nations inthe world. China make the cake bigger to share and take nothing.

          As usual most people here dont understand debts because Your econimies are a level under ours. The same goes for tax.

          Very clever by people like You not to compare with Yourselfl.

          You dont understand debt. As long as debts are loans for incresed production makingprofit paying back debts as asked for making prifit as well, its very healthy.

          But of course You will come with the same I deny to understand more as usual since Muhammed in 650 or something. You only are correct in that in primitive economies as well as producing for own use only – like farms.

          • AM Hants

            You might not see any decline, however, going by the figures from the world debt clock, they seriously are not emerging economies, but, riddled by high debt.

            What happens, courtesy of Trump insulting all and sundry, resulting in many nations turning their backs on the $US, to the US economy? Many see it coming, but, sadly the citizens of the US, whose media focuses on just two stories, have no idea. US Media, China and the tariffs, or blame President Putin for everything. There again, do believe Iran is making a breakthrough, in the media, controlled by just 6 corporatations.

            Darling, I might not have a PhD in Economics, unlike Dr Vladimir Putin, who understands the subject so well. However, I do understand ‘incoming expenses’ and ‘outgoing expenses’. Being so thick, how on earth would I understand if you have earn $100, but, your bills make up $114, then you still owe $14, once paid. However, if you earn $100, but, your bills make up $20, then you still have another $80 to spend or save as you please. As you state, it is seriously too difficult for me to comprehend, the meaning behind ‘outgoings’ and ‘incomings’.

            With regards your attempt to explain the agricultural industry, how you have made me laugh. The primitive nations, who rely on agriculture, can actually feed their people, without the need to import grain and agricultural products. Unlike the so classed civilised/progressive nations, who are purely reliant on agricultural imports.

            Take the nuclear, triad, super-power, Russia, for an example. After the fall of the Soviet Union, they had so much to do and the agricultural industry suffered, owing to not having a higher priority. Then along came the sanctions and Russia, realised what treasures she held. As she turned her back on the agricultural products, of those sanctioning her, and focused on investing in her own domestic, agricultural market. She now finds herself the world’s primary exporter in grain and GM free come to that. Bonus or what? Where the EU nations, have lost $billions, thanks to the sanctions, specifically the EU agricultural industry.

            Over in the US, China has turned away from their GM loaded, agricultural products, owing to Trump and his tariff war. How are the US farmers coping, with not just the loss of the Chinese market, but, also how the climate has worked against them, this year?

            So who benefits from the interest applied to debt? Does the average tax payer, reap the rewards or do those that own make up just 1% of the planet, benefit from the interest that goes with the debt/loan?

            Which so reminds me of Ukraine. There again, not having any understanding of economics, it is so obvious as to why I would not understand why the people of Ukraine freeze and starve, whilst the IMF and various loans, end up in the off shore bank accounts of the oligarchs? Yep, I can really see how that benefits the people of Ukraine.

    These militarily useless pinpricks from Israel are starting to sound more like fake psy-ops, i.e. fake air strikes, like the one that supposedly happened in Iraq a couple of days ago. Shows how contained Israel is getting, now that they are having to resort to fake air strikes.

    Israel owns media’s. We can simply go back to time of WW1 and the same people who were spreading propaganda against Germans have continued to do so. Those same people were behind making of the state of Israel. Nothing has changed in 100+ years which followed except that after WW1 they had to apologize for their lies (it was official and well known) but after WW2 they did not apologize and have profited greatly from their lies. I am talking about bankers, corporate thugs like JP Morgan etc.
    That is a reason why it is hard for Iran to fight these crazy allegations and lies which came form Zionist kitchen because this world of today is still the world which was made after WW2. Never forget that people, victorious side writes history and takes goodies until new powers take over.
    I trust Iran on this, Israel simply keeps to disrespect sovereignty of every single one of it’s neighbors and they can do it without fear because they are made by victors of last great war. I believe that arrogance will be the end of them.
