New Footage Confirms French Troops Are Still Operating In Northeastern Syria

File image.

On December 29, activists shared footage showing a French Airbus H225M military helicopter flying over Syria’s northeastern region.

The helicopter was spotted near the town of al-Shheell in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor. At the time, Syrian Democratic Forces units in the town were placed on high alert, possibly in preparation for a joint counter-terrorism operation with the US-led coalition. France is a key member of the coalition.

At least 18 H225M helicopters are in service with both the French Air Force and Army, which are apparently still active in northeastern Syria.

The H225M is a long-range tactical transport military helicopter capable of undertaking various mission roles including combat search and rescue, aeromedical transport, logistic support and shipboard maritime operations.

The French military had several posts in northeastern Syria, mainly in northeastern Aleppo and northern Raqqa. However, in October of 2019 a Turkish-led invasion of the region forced French and American troops to leave these areas. The Russian Military Police and the Syrian Arab Army took over.

Earlier this year, a French H225M helicopter was spotted while transporting special forces personnel or intelligence officers from Iraq to northeastern Syria.

Fog of War

You’ve been here long enough to know that that will never happen. Syria is done.

Cromwell

There is no Syria and hasnt been for years.

Your version for which are the good ones is highly overrated. Whats next. Do Assads have a colony in Turkey or what.

I take it again. Its a country if it unite its people.

It amaze me, You can be amazed. Your version for who is who there is very biased. Assads has made those contrasts possible by making them. The only change is they now are helped to shoot back.

Was that really needed? I dont think so.

To many men are raised as shouting rooster chickens, which never has left their eggs. They never has learned what honor and respect is and know no other possibilities or are forced not to.

The worst anytime are the Baarthists, because they has had the Governess for decades making Jihadists as well as marxists.

Chris Gr

Maybe there is not Syria but Aramea. And Aramea needs to take Hatay, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine.

jens holm

Arameans are too few. You only can get influence by making Syria into many local parlaments deciding for local matters just as the SDF prefare it.

Many countries are like that. In Denmark the locals use 50% of the local tax taken in by the local parlaments.

Arameans just as several others are replaced. You could say Jews, Khaldeans, Persians, assyrians shoukd run it too. Thats not possible.

You have to join or we see as we see now remain as everlasting often deadly disputes.

I dont see Arameans need to take over. Today they as anyone else decide almost nothing. By that almost nothing can be devellloped by any.

Right are 1 vote for one person and equal right for gender. Rights are to go to sober schools and not religios and Damaskus infected ones. Right are to own land as one person and not that old tribe crap to often with incomptent fathers rule.

It makes no sense to propose up in the air as You do. You and the rest has to join using all well educated brains and hands. You has to have a program for those needed changes, which even are forbidden to think in Syria and decided by the wrong men.

EWe have changed a lot from semilar things because they were backstabbing and worse. Not only the arabs are there. I have seen and heard about schoolboks by Christian teachers in the SDF too. They work hard to keep old outdated traditions as if Jesus died yesterday. Other in the arab parts work as Assad is the the last Prophet.

And infact its a non rule. Its a keep in power rule added oilmoney and the rest of the very few incomming money are drowning in Baathist Corruption.

In local decidings, You can find those bad attitudes and choose new ones by insight and election. Its also easier Damaskus only is 50% and if one local area has problems, the rest still work as they do.

Chris Gr

Jens, I am traditionalist. Aramean tradition should fit in Syria and Assyrian in Iraq. Ba’athism and radical islam have failed.

jens holm

You dont understand Our systems. Danes own more in USA then they have here. The kapitalistic system is based by stockholders and often best to the price. Our program mainly is to take well care of Our own citicens. That also say we help others as well as we when needed are helped by the others.

Thats “Western economics”. My public poension as well as the private part is not gold under my pillow. It working for me being loans at the stockmarket. By that I get extra and also eben almost retired pay extra tax.

But Im open for something better. Danes are well known for taking in foreign productions and services, implement them well, improve them AND re-export them.

We dont think that make us to vassals but to be equal partners. You are in the oneeyed level, where You think that state control the whole country and even its new for non parle reasons. Its not like that.

The upper state is the equalizer sometimes telling enough is enough and a part of Our system. By that we has consensus and by that we can run a country by a Goverment havinbg only 25% of the votes. SO THEY HAS TO ASK TO GET 50 or more. We also has a female premiere Minister which were and are the best.

Im sure You can improve Your livingstandards being inpsired by other systems then the one, You are living in. Im sure we have parts You need and can calibrate to Your own progesses and needs.

Chris Gr

You are confusing traditionalism with authoritarianism.

ATTILA

Too much ouzo again.re yorgo ?

Chris Gr

Too much shisha raghead?

ATTILA

re kalamara never heard a raghead 🙃. Take it easy with ouzo

Chris Gr

I don’t drink

blahblah

there has been no Denmark since 1940. and probably since 1864. nothing but a pathetic little buttlicking vassal of various evil empires….

Chris Gr

There was Denmark for many centuries.

jens holm

We were in the parts of the no more war world, which was created after WW1. By that we as Norway, Sweden, Holland, GB by Chamberlain hardly had military forces.

The Germand took Poland and we saw its destiny, so we choosed to keep alive. After that Our part of Europe woke up well supported by the USA Marshall plan. Here its true the old Denmark, which wasnt feeling fine 1864 to 1920 was gone.

We had very good relations with germany because we voted for a new border in 1920. We could have taken much more and fx France would be happy about it.

We had free elections during WW2. Even the nazis had the upper hand Our 2 local parties got less then 2% of the votes.

You dont understand, that mot countries always has lived in alliances. Our best partner when Denmark was a small empire themself was Russia and against Swedes and Germans. The las Tzarin that Empire was danish.

When Norway wanted to themself from DEnamrk(and Sweden), they choose a DANISH PRINCE. Thats what good relations are.

Sure we are vassals of EU which is same seize as USA. We also are vassals of Nato and by that even are partly united with people we dont like. Thats how the worlds are.

We are no plundred by USA as well. We export more tho them, then they do to us. Its mainly hightech. The biggest insulin factory inthe world is Danish and is in USA named NOVO.

Even smal we has well known world companies and we fx has 4 tools at the American Marslander.

Our “vassal” women makes more GDP then the arabic men even they have no oil under their behinds.

Chris Gr

Can I ask you what party do you support? Personally, I would support Danish People’s Party.

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

Lay off the speed Jen, its bad for you…

jens holm

Finally Im fine being runned by Jews and rich Americans if that was true. I look at most of the rest of the world ad too often see too many dark clouds. But between them I also see a little gold and some diamons. You have to improve from there if You allow Yourself to it.

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

You spelled the U.S. wrong tho Epstein boy.

Fog of War

I’ve supported Syria since the beginning but the truth needs to be said. If Syria cant shoot down foreign aircraft over its skis then its effectively done as a state.

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

Syria is alive and fine.
The Isisraeli chair farce is fireing duds.
90% of their strikes are ineffective.
Syria can shoot them down.
They already did, twice.
But a few Iranian Hezbollah assets aint worth a war with Isisrael.

Fog of War

” But a few Iranian Hezbollah assets aint worth a war with Isisrael. ”

What about US, French, British, and other planes ? At what point does the shooting start ? In 20 years ? 50 years ?

jens holm

No realisme.

hmm

No brain – jens holm.

jens holm

Maybee You should try another God or none:(

Chris Gr

In my opinion, the French are needed though. And Alawites decades ago wanted the French to remain in order to protect them from radical Sunnis.

Cromwell

The French are needed like a hole in the head.

Chris Gr

Says the Cromwell…

Sylvain

What a spoil of my working money. Please leave and tax less my work !

jens holm

I dont understand, what You write about. You could try again.

Sylvain

I don’t want to pay for French armies staying in other countries.

jens holm

Ahhh. Thank You very. Its about the French and the Parlament by Makron.

I only partly agree and would change methods if I was French. Im Danish and support more peacefull methods. We are too close to the Americans here and there and mainly should only use economic and political influence.

I

Sylvain

Ok. Actually I prefer to have a defensive army inside our borders. I don’t see the point to go everywhere and to force our things to other countries. Fuck the minerals.

jens holm

Its still the same alliance between USA, France and GB. They take care of different jobs around the world and by that only USA is in Syria for real.

I looked up. The helicopter has a one way range of 857 km. By that they can arrive from Jordan, Cyprus, Turkey and Iraq( and Saudi and Israel).

Each one can have 28 soldiers.

Barry

Stop spamming idiotic nonsense you braindead cretin

Sylvain

Actually, France is the US whore since people vote for former French American Foundation young leaders students.

Cromwell

I always admired the French for their independent minds,thats changed now,thats why the Americans hated De Gaulle he wouldn’t be bullied by the Americans.

Sylvain

We have to take in account that many Frenchs are ignorant actually: many think that the USA are a good and nice country and that Iran/Russia are bad countries.

Cromwell

Just who gave these self appointed guardians of world peace and wellbeing authority to jackboot all over the World other than through the barrel of a gun? problem for them is other people have guns these days just as big as theirs.

Corrupt Shithole of Ukropisstan

Froggy go home.
