Pentagon Claims It Informed Russia Ahead Of Its Attack On Syrian Army. More Details About Incident Appear

On February 8, US Department of Defense spokesperson Dana White claimed that the US-led coalition had informed the Russian side of its plans to attack the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Deir Ezzor in advance, according to the Russian state-run news agency Sputnik.

“The coalition officials alerted Russian officials of the SDF presence via the de-confliction line in advance of the attack,” White said during a press briefing, according to Sputnik.

White added that the US-led coalition had even contacted Russia after its attack on the SAA and stressed that the coalition was not looking to start a conflict with the SAA and the Damascus government.

From its side, Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia described the US-led coalition attack on the SAA as “regrettable” and said that Russia will raise the incident during a UN Security Council closed-door briefing on the Syria’s humanitarian situation on February 8, according to Reuters.

“That’s very regrettable, we will raise that issue, we will ask them what happened,” Nebenzia told reporters, according to Reuters.

Meanwhile more information about the US-led coalition attack on the SAA apppeared. Lucas Tomlinson, a journalist of Fox News TV, revealed that Apache attack helicopters, AC-130 gunship, F-22 and F-15 warplanes and US Marine Corps artillery units participated in the attack on the SAA positions in the town of Khasham in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside on February 7.

Furthermore, the Arab al-Bakara tribe announced in an official statement that dozens of its sons were killed in the US-led coalition airstrikes on the SAA. Earlier, Syrian opposition sources claimed that the US-led coalition target “Iranian and Russian forces” in Khasham. However, it appears that these claims were nothing more than a propaganda stunt to justify the airstrikes.

Al-Bakara also vowed in its official statement to continue its fight against ISIS, the US-led coalition and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and described the three forces as “occupiers” and “terrorists”.

Local sources believe that the Euphrates Valley region may witness more similar incidents in the future, as the tension in the region is higher than ever.

    Russia warned by the Americans before the Americans massacred Russian allies?
    Will it be an American lie of the many more to tarnish the dignity and honor of my beloved Russia or a shameful and sad truth?

    • MikeH

      And Russians according to the opposition media as well. It is as believable as the Steele dossier and senior US officials.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Opposition media = dolls of the dirty and American liars.
        You have to look at the facts and only in the facts and in their possible reasons to be and while being objective and as close to logic as possible.
        Doing that you will see how the obvious and the truth will come out like the sun in a clear summer sky, my friend

      • Shylo Duffy

        Right but thank God no one believes a single word they utter.Msm has to be laughing that the American people through they’re tax bucks pay for their propaganda lies.

    • Shylo Duffy

      I think when all is said and done Russia will come out of this on top because they are a good people with strong leadeship, I do worry though about what becomes of Russia when Putin’s not running the Govt? In all my yrs I’ve never seen such a honorable man not to mentions a Just President as he, he’s unique ….unshakable, and above all a God fearing man…I honestly believe he walks with God and is a pleasure to the Lord, Hence why he’s successful in all he does.To be honest I’m envious that my Country has never known such a leader.I respect him greatly.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Ooh my friend, you never imagined the satisfaction do you gave me when I reading your comment and seeing you expressing yourself in that so gentle and nice way about my beloved Russia and Putin.
        May God continue to bless this great and good man regardless of its shortcomings and failures, because who is exempt from them, dares to throw the first stone and I fear that no one would dare to do so, being all us simple humans with faults and defects, ones with more than others, I fear.

        • Antikapitalista

          Calm down, that was just compensatory wanking; Russia and Putin is none of that, whoever is not blind, can see it with every attack.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Curiously I think exactly the same about you, but as I said before, you have the same right as everyone here to comment what you think is right, my friend. Good luck in your way of thinking.

      • You can call me Al

        I do agree, but if you are like me, for 3 decades, we have witnessed absolute scum run many European Countries and definitely the US. Whilst I agree that Putin is an exceptional being, has all of the positive attributes you state and has made Russia the greatest success in fighting the bully boys (in centuries); a dead rancid fish would be better than the Globalists we have today (not taking anything from him at all).

        • Shylo Duffy

          Well said Al..

          • Antikapitalista

            Just think of it… are you not tired of the fact that the Russian leadershit is just wasting not only our effort and our resources, but also the lives of its own people?!
            Then think again!
            We are all rooting for Russia… are you not sick of it that the Russian leadershit is just piling up one blunder after another in such a childish way that it is disgusting, even offensive!

            To tell you the truth honestly, I always keep in mind the following quote by Ólorin (known to Men as Gandalf and to Elves as Mithrandir…):

            “Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay.”

            And I am trying to follow his advice. But all too often that great power betrays us like Curumo (Saruman) and all of our everyday small deeds are simply wasted…
            just because the morons cannot even perform their basic duties!!!
            And not even speaking up when they ought to and when it costs them nothing!
            Through their stupidity and incompetence, it costs us, the ordinary folk, our lives!

            Just think of it!

        • Antikapitalista

          Not really.

          Look at what the morons have done. The current Russian leadershit has brought Russia under sanctions and into a kind of isolation. And simply because they are inept morons who, due to their own shocking incompetence, expend the lives of thousands of their people.

          They have fucked up just about everything.

          E.g. consider Libya. They let the evil West destroy the country. Syria, their ally, was next. And why? Because they were fucking stupid and failed to do what was obvious even to a child. A simple vote, which would not have cost a single life, could have prevented 2 bloody wars.
          If the West had been stopped in Libya, the Syrian civil war could have been prevented.

          Of course, it did not stop there, Ukraine was next. And Russians, their folk, was already being killed this time.
          Did the Russians came at least with words which (again), cost nothing? A couple of words could have prevented it. A proper propaganda effort could have averted it and make the West’s deeds backfire on it.

          Just think of it… are you not tired of the fact that the Russian leadershit is just wasting not only our effort and our resources, but also the lives of its own people?!
          Then think again!
          We are all rooting for Russia… are you not sick of it that the Russian leadershit is just piling up one blunder after another in such a childish way that it is disgusting, even offensive!

          To tell you the truth honestly, I always keep in mind the following quote by Ólorin (known to Men as Gandalf and to Elves as Mithrandir…):

      • Antikapitalista

        No, the Russian leadershit is a bunch of cowardly scumbags, despised and derided by the rest of the world, first by Russia’s enemies, then by Russia’s allies.
        The only thing they come on top is a pile of dead bodies, first of their allies, then of their own.
        There is most likely a good reason why Russia, despite being supposedly so brilliant, has such a low standing in international relations… approaching North Korea, actually.

    • You can call me Al

      Hello Terrence; in my view, the only thing that it tarnishing is the dignity and honour (if they had any) of the Yankers; it is embarrassing to watch their predictable behaviour and lies showing their imminent collapse.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Hi my friend, and that is, that’s the right and logical of all facts, about what you comment here.
        To this day I am still wondering about how those American political worms manage to live with themselves and achieve a peaceful sleep in the night after so many injustices, evils and deceptions that day after day they do not stop to accumulate in their dark and malevolent consciousness, if they have one at all, I’m asking me too.

        • You can call me Al

          I ask myself as well. I know I couldn’t. Cheers for now.

          • Antikapitalista

            The explanation is quite straightforward: the incompetent Russians wish them a good night and sweet dreams.
            At the expense of their allies, of course, whom the brown-nosing Russians let die by the hundreds without hardly batting an eye lid…

        • Antikapitalista

          It so easy: the incompetent Russians wish them a good night and sweet dreams.
          At the expense of their allies, of course, whom the brown-nosing Russians let die by the hundreds without hardly batting an eye lid…

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Okey my friend, although I’m not very inspired by your comment, I’ll have to respect it, because it’s your right to say what you think. Good for you.

      • Antikapitalista

        Are you still living in your delusions?!
        There is no “imminent collapse” of the Yankies, far from that!

        They are rock-solid in their positions because the Russians are such incompetent morons who do not dare to even speak up where they ought to!

        You know, my mother told me that the Russians value human life above everything else.
        Well, maybe ordinary Russians do, but the Russian leaders value a hundred lives below a single public utterance.

        • You can call me Al

          I said imminent collapse – I was talking about the economic situation and the likes of 40 million on food stamps, the true unemployment being 20% ish and so on and so on.

    • Nightcrawler136

      Just US psy-ops trying to cause trouble, I’m sure we’ll hear it was 2mins before the attack so no action could be taken, or they lied and said they were bombing Daesh!

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        You are right my friend, because everything, yes, everything is possible while dealing with these crazy Americans, as long as it is about evils, betrayals, traps and robbing others resources..ect, everything is always and will be always possible to do by those very bad guys, calling americans.

  • Vince Dhimos

    They lie, and that is ALL they do. This is a propaganda effort to make Assad mistrust the Russians. It will not work. It was also cold-blooded murder by an illegal invader. The underlying purpose is to embarrass Putin prior to the elections.

    • Terence Silvestre Jr.

      I also think the same thing, my friend, because, since when do Americans care about Russia’s opinion about what they will do or do not do at their whim and whenever they want?
      Apart from cowardly stabbing in the back, being so sickly and impulsive liars, I pity those American worms.

      • Merijn

        Everything coming out of the mouth of a Western Politician is a Lie ( can’t judge the others)……..So when they talk, you know what to skip from the list………I learned that Donkeys can talk….

        • Terence Silvestre Jr.

          More accurate impossible.
          I totally agree with your comment, my friend.

        • Eric Holt

          Yep…yer doing that now lol :P

        • Joe

          That’s an understatement . They are not only lies but childish lies that assumes the rest of the world are kids .

          .. .and these guys are powered to drop nukes now even mini nukes for fun.

      • Eric Holt

        Fool born every day. You were no exception. Does not matter what country or government…when interests conflict… all will stab the other in the back. But just so you know why American´s are like that…. Rusia “liberated 55 thousand prisoners after ww2 from east German camps. They told allies they would send them home when the allies gave them the half of Europe they wanted. Allies refused and those men…. nearly 30,000 of them American, were trained back to russian camps and were never seen again. That´s why the cold war originated in miss trust. Makes you wonder why you ruskies have such ill feelings for Americans lol.

        • Antikapitalista

          This is what Harry Truman, the future Murrican president, actually said:
          “If we see that Germany is winning we ought to help Russia, and if Russia is winning we ought to help Germany, and that way let them kill as many as possible.”
          So much for the trust in the Murricans, lol.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Are you inventing or do you have a genuine and credible literary source about what you are citing, my friend?

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            I did the observation because it is very common to hear quotes falsely linked to historical figures to give them some weight and value.
            It is a very common type of fraud carried out by several failed historians and journalists to attract attention.
            And this website that you mention (goodreads.com) can be one of those cases, I’m afraid, my friend.

          • You can call me Al

            I am not sure I meant to send you that link, sorry.

          • Terence Silvestre Jr.

            Do not worry, my friend, do not worry.
            Because I know very well that you have always tried and managed to be very objective and wise in each of your comments and your previous one will not be the exception.
            Have a nice day and good luck in everything.

          • You can call me Al

            Thank you very much, much appreciated. Until next time.

          You will excuse me, my friend, but I assure you that at least in my case I enjoy excellent mental and psychiatric health, just like Putin and many others giving their opinion here.
          And if for some reason you doubt of your own mental health I recommend that you go as soon as possible with an expert in the subject for your own good.
          Because I fear that I can see a slight signal of alerts in your extreme way of thinking here my friend. I hope you accept my humble advice.

        • Jens Holm

          Very one eyed version.

    • Shylo Duffy

      Yes of course it is, but both Putin and Assad expect this and there’s not a single thing that the US can do to try and convince the other that they can’t be trusted. The thing the west doesn’t seem to ubnderstand is that just bc they lie cheat and steal, doesn’t mean the rest of us do..The west is failing on every level…The American people are NOT the problem it’s they’re Govts.

      • Ariel Cohen

        The American people blindly elect the people they choose, so they have to take responsibility also. However, the visible governing body is merely a convenient distraction for the shadow rulers, who have no humanitarian conscience at all and are ruthless in every way. They threw us all into two world wars already, killing millions of innocents and they are quite willing to kill and foment death and destruction if it suits their purposes or furthers their globalist agenda. It will all culminate in the revelation of their “Supreme Lord”, who will make some sort of international agreement, followed by the installation of a one world credit system. “..a mark in their right hand or in their forehead . .”

        • John Mason

          Not many to choose from, 2 candidates thrown at the people, Clinton and Trump. Seems more like a dictatorship, here choose; A or B. If no one voted then that would make it interesting and will also show that the US citizens have some intelligence.

          • Eric Holt

            Even if no one voted, you would still get 65 million votes counted? And maybe not for the one you choose?

          • Antikapitalista

            Maybe it is a bit off-topic here… but a couple of Murricans conceded that if a terrorist bomb attack happened in a city, most of the people killed by the bomb would actually be guilty (of voting for a criminal government perpetrating war crimes all over the world), not innocent.

          • Ariel Cohen

            lol

          • Southern

            That’s the problem with electronic voting – it’s just too easy to rig.

            That and legal bribery i.e. campaign contributions.

        • Eric Holt

          DOES THAT MEAN ALL SYRIANS ARE COMPLICIT OF INTERNATIONAL WAR CRIMES AND HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES BECAUSE THEY ELECTED ASSAIDS??. BY YOUR RECONNING IT DOES. EQUALITY IS A WONDEROUS THING. AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE NO MORE TO BLAME THAN SYRIANS ARE.

          • Antikapitalista

            IT MERELY MEANS THAT IF THE MURRICANS HAVE A HISTORY OF VOTING FOR WAR CRIMINALS WHO THEN GO UNPUNISHED AND BASK IN EVERYDAY FAVOUR, THEN THEY, TOO, DESERVE TO BE KILLED BY THE HUNDREDS, AS PER YOUR WONDERFUL EQUALITY.
            IS THAT CLEAR?!

          • Tudor Miron

            Eric, stop spreading BS here. international war crimes and human rights abuses – are you talking about Israel, US? If you’re talking about elected president of sovereign Syria, Assad than thare only a couplle ignorant americans left that still believe MSM lies about Syria.

            That’s my business Matt.

            I knew it, NONE

            how many “real”refugees did you meet???

            Silly question really. One gets real news not your fall news .

            Lol
            Evidence already proven beyond any doubt.

            fall news?
            REAL news?????

          • as

          • matt

            Good idea!
            trow out the Americans, Russians, Iranians, Iraqi, Hezbollah, Turkey, foreign jihadis, foreign apoists. ALL foreigners OUT!!!

          • Rüdiger Preiss

            Refugees are not a good source as I’ve explained in another post. Especially not Syrians who are known to blow their stories out of proportion when they sense that this would earn them more attention and probably also reward them in a material way. If you want a good source of information, look for someone who is in Syria for years and certainly not for profit, such as Pierre Le Corf. Since Pierre’s “we are superheroes” charity is not limited to Syria but he has been to many other countries as well, this certainly should give him more credibility than anyone else. https://www.facebook.com/pierrelecorf

          • matt

            That is your opinion, it is not mine. You can explain me untill you drop dead, i keep to my own opinion.
            The man i met yesterday is not earning anything with what he told me. He lost ALL his money, but fortunatly, he and his his children are safe!
            I rather talk to syrians then some foreigner that has a limited view on the truth, Mostly because he won’t understand arabic perfectly (with al the local slang) and he won’t understand the culture, as he is a westerner. In many cases, the person will travel under escort, and is not able to talk freely with assad opponents.
            Your point does not make sense at all!!

          • Rüdiger Preiss

            You obviously haven’t looked at Pierre Le Corf’s footage, otherwise you wouldn’t claim that he couldn’t walk freely. Also, you obviously have never been to Syria yourself. You claim you know Syria because you are talking to some refugees, oh well. Have you spoken to any Syrian Christians or Druze? These are the best people to speak to, because they are looking at the events from a more neutral perspective. Druze are exempt from military duty. I have travelled Syria extensively and lived with Syrians, from simple farmers, shepherds, to university graduates and with all ethnicities, incl. Sunnis. It doesn’t take me long to recognise whether a Syrian is dodgy or honest and I also have heard a lot of stories badly blown out of proportion, from a river that supposedly flows upstream in As Suweidah to a snake that eats babies in Deir Ezzor. You also should know that many Syrians will tell you stories they claim have involved themselves, then you hear the same from a neighbour a few doors further down the road and next day a few villages further someone else will tell you the same story leaving you thinking “hmmm … I’ve heard that somewhere before”. It is your point that doesn’t make sense. A Pierre le Corf has no reason whatsoever to spread lies – the fact that he does the same type of aid in various countries proves that his ambitions are the human being and the suffering and not at all political motives. You claim you are talking to Syrians, but you don’t understand that refugees (who represent no more than 10% of the Syrian population) very likely are biased, whereas if you speak to Syrians in Syria, you will hear very different stories.

          • Rüdiger Preiss

            Do you really think that refugees make good “witnesses”? Think about it. Who would be the first to leave their country? How many Americans hate their country to the core and would leave it as refugees as soon as there was a similar uprising (if not joining the uprising)? MILLIONS. Apart from that, refugees are easily subjected to a lot of propaganda and even easier to buy – I know one from Damascus who had a travel company and he was given a HOUSE for him and his 3 kids, twice the size of mine here in the UK, for free. The rent for the house he was given would be above £1500 / month. Also, you need to know that Syrians as all Arabs are very good at blowing their stories out of proportion. If someone has been held at a police station over night and been slapped, they will tell you they were in prison for a week and been heavily tortured. I have seen stories unfold in Syria, you wouldn’t believe them, had you not known the truth yourself.

          • matt

            Why do you refer to americans?? Are you american? I am not.
            I don’t know how the refugee system works in the UK, but on the mainland EU, the refugees do not get big appartements at all. Most live in camps for one or two years to start with. They share a 30 square room with 4 people. After that they get a house, wich is always social housing, never bigger then neccessary.
            The amount of torture won’t give you more square meters, i cannot imagine it works like that in the UK!?!?!

          • Rüdiger Preiss

            That depends on the refugees’s influence :). Main land Europe is a bit different from the UK in that their imperialist ambitions are insignificant (except for France maybe). The MSM in the UK are some of the main sources of propaganda, mostly fed by the specifically for this purpose created White Helmets and the pathological Assad hater Rami Abdulrahman who – nobody should be surprised -has seen a few Syrian prison walls. I guess he has successfully infected you :D

            i am just a divorced father and architect, that is all..oh yeah and i volunteer on helping syrian refugees, the educated ones that had enough money to travel to europe, i can assure you that you learn much more about syria talking to real syrians instead of reading all this websites, both the MSM and alt media are FULL of SHIT

          • Merijn

            Then add something meaningful….everyone got his own reasons to be here…..

          • matt

            I did, once again: Assad is one of the mayor problems in this war, with him in power the war will not end

          • Merijn

            For now: the real enemy is another one, and first things first! He has done a great job defending Syrians…..otherwise they would all live in ISISrael…..free elections only when the war is over……That is up to the Syrian People… not up to us

          • matt

            He killed way more syrians then he defended, you are seeing things from a kremlin/teheran point of view, wich is not the true story.

          • Merijn

            There is no true story….. that’s the sad thing……Deceit & mistrust is what makes the world go round these days….. Humanity has made nice progress

          • matt

            I agree there is no ONE true story, if that is what you meant.
            But the many syrians i talked with told me that the protests against assad where real protests from educated middle class people that know the west and they were fed up with the mafia regime, later assad released salafi madmen from prison to turn the protests into a civil war. In the meantime, the USA, togeheter with Qatar and SA were training foreign salafis to increase the conflict. Qatar wanted the pipeline, backed by the usa, the russians did not want that, the saudis want a salafi government in syria, the usa wants chaos in syria to help israel and to sell weapons, erdogan dreams about the osman erra, the kurds want their own state, so many dirty powergames
            One truth is certain, the assad regime killed too many people to have any credibility left to rule the country. The only road to peace is a government without the assad clan. The sad truth is that in the end the new rulers will have blood on their hands as well, probably. One example: Cambodia, who is still in power? Hun Sen, wich was responsible for most killings during the Khmer rouge!! This fact was put under the carpet and is still taboo in Cambodia

          • Merijn

            The common Syrians are the ones that suffer…. they are caught in the middle of all this… every player in this war has got his own reasons to be there…..The US Zionazis want to commit Global Suicide….. I think everyone should be opposed against that first……or maybe it’s best when Humanity leaves this earth……when they continue on this track it will be over within the next 100 years anyway….

          • matt

            Non of the players want to commit global suicide as planned, all sides have very stupid short term policies, they are humans. Mayebe we could be ruled by A.I. within a few decades, or they exterminate us as a plague :)

          • Shylo Duffy

            I just wanted you to understand that here my friend you won’t find anyone who believes that story..Most if not all of us here understand perfectly what and why and how this happened…If you don’t know by now that the Syrian crisis was and is a US
            (As usual) a full blown regime change that has obviously failed but the US (as usual) refuse to do the right thing but of course everyone knows that they don’t understand right from wrong up from down.Just didn’t want you wasting youre time trying to convince us of the tired propaganda bs.

          • Eric Holt

            Bull shiite. No Sunni ever voted for Assaids and assaids was elected by his 11% shiite minority…combined with a 4% Christian if reality is true…. dont be a fool all your life.

          • Antikapitalista

            Of course, you fool, they voted for him.

            You peddle bullshit that you cannot even prove. Like I said, even Western opinion polls, not to mention the actual results of the presidential election, have always indicated that Bashar Hafez al-Assad enjoys the support of a majority of Syrians.

          • Anti_Globalista

            You don’t know shite (or shiite if you prefer). Assad would win landslide in any elections. If not why so called “opposition” is so afraid that they want to ban him from running. If they are so popular why they are scared to face him on internationally monitored elections?

          • FlorianGeyer

            Can you say why 60% of the SAA soldiers are Sunnis Eric.

            They chose to support and fight for President Assad.
            Those that did not fled abroad or joined the US Proxy Terrorists.

            If you reply, please refrain from bad language, it is a rather standard Zionist Jew trait in my experience on forums such as these.

          • matt

            You need to talk with some people that were in the protests!

          • Antikapitalista

            Then shut up!
            You talked to “many” Syrians, yet only a small minority of Syrians, who were most likely heavily biased on top of that!

            That is really like asking the Nazis about the Jews…
            By the way, the West wanted Assad to release the “political prisoners”, so he did it…

            One truth is certain: the United States of Aggression is complicit in too many bloody wars to tell anyone how to run their country, much less in the case of Syria, which the United States of Aggression has been attacking for almost 70 years.

            Your “logic” is like saying that the Jews should not have a country of their own because they brought about the Holocaust (pardon my capitalization) on themselves.

            The Syrians voted for Assad and only the Syrians have the right to decide it, not some Western puppets named “Syrian government in exile”, whose members have not been to Syria for decades and who have been voted for by no one but themselves and who refuse to take part in peace talks, unless they are supplied with weapons…

            Speaking of Cambodia, the United States of Aggression was propping up Pol Pot for many years after his fall and ousting.

          • matt

            You shut up, fucking braindead imbecil!

          • Anti_Globalista

            It is painful to read your “logic”. He released salafi, but he killed to many to have credibility, and he released salafi to turn protests into civil war???? He would be the first “evil dictator” who instead of eliminating his enemies, released them from prison, because he preferred civil war to protests???? If you are as smart of an architect as you are political analyst, I would not even allow you to draw house on a peace of paper with pencil, not to mention designing the real one.

          • matt

            Its painfull to see all your stupid comments. You just refuse to see how evil these people work

          • Antikapitalista

            Really??? You are failing in basic math, you stupid troll! :-D
            There is an estimate of about a 1/2 million deaths, yet over 10 million Syrians voted for Bashar Hafez Assad. Then how do you explain that they voted for him and that he has had the support of about 2/3 of Syrians all the time by any measure, even in Western polls?
            Which is your story, then? :-P

          • Anti_Globalista

            And CNN/US/Israel/Saudi story you are pushing is the true story?

          • matt

            sure, CNN is telling that the USA trained ISIS

          • Shylo Duffy

            Have u not noticed you’re the only one going out of its way to share lies..You spend alot of time to try and convince us about Assad, it’s an insult to many of us here who have spent many yrs researching the truth…Go elsewhere to peddle you’re lies.

          • matt

            you dumb asses are an insult to the syrian victims

          • Eric Holt

            You know nothing about syria, Assaids or his father and their 40 years* reign of terror over the people. Thats why this has happened now. If every country…. stayed out of syria and let the syrian people do their own thing, Assaids would be dead… a new government in power and syrians safely rebuilding their own future. However, taking this that or another sifde simply because you dislike another does not make anything you said right. The only thing that matters now is for Assaids to be outsted anyways possible, all other countries to leave and then let the syrian people choose. But no…those you support, will be there after the end and take all.

          • Antikapitalista

            I guess you know nothing about the United States of Aggression, where every president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a war criminal, who terrorized the whole planet Earth, including Syria, and tens of other nations as well, precisely because the nations and their people wanted to do their own thing.
            The Syrian people have already chosen, but the United States of Aggression — the cuntry based on ethnic cleansing and genocide — does not accept their choice and keeps terrorizing and murdering them in gross violation of Chapter 2 of the Charter of the United Nations.

          • Anti_Globalista

            Without Assad Syria would be like Libya without Gaddafi troll. Do you know any Libyans troll? You probably don’t because they are dying in Mediterranean see trying to escape from their newly acquired freedom from “evil dictator” troll.

            Ok Matt, seeing that you are an ‘expert’ on Syrian affairs, who do you think has the stature and ability and support to lead all the factions within Syria if President Assad was to retire ?

          • matt

            That is a good question Florian, to be honest i would not know. Do you?
            One day he will retire if not imprisoned or killed

          • FlorianGeyer

            I do not know of anyone who could replace President Assad , who I believe to be a good and honourable man.

            However, what I am certain of is that a descent into the chaos we witness today in Libya and the chaos we witnessed in Iraq after the fall of Saddam, is a salutary lesson that US/NATO intervention has only bought misery and death to millions of civilians in those countries.

            The appalling thing is that the US and others knew very well the chaos that would result and it seems that only the rulers who ‘ chop of heads ‘ in Saudi Arabia etc who kneel to the US are acceptable.

          • matt

            The USA wil hopefully fall apart. I am not a fan AT ALL!!

It’s all good to remain pragmatic and try to find a solution but everyone understands when it comes to the west there us no honor.How I hate to watch as Syria continues to be broken …I’m not one for war but when one side starts killing the other side time for that SIDE to FIGHT back with everything that they have…Honestly my heart breaks for those people in the M E.I can barley stand it.

      Do you think anyone would attack with 500 men and no air support then many have a lot to learn.

Seems the US really doesn’t want the SDF making it’s own deals, but fine for ISIS turned DMC to smuggle ISIS members across the Euphrates.

    It looks like the SDF bought itself a whole lot of trouble.

    If you have ever thought that the Russians cannot not possibly stoop lower in their spectacular show of scumbaggery, you have just been proven wrong.

    It is actually far worse than I have ever thought!

    So, their enemy kills about a hundred soldiers deep in their territory and the Russian scumbag at the United Nations calls that merely “regrettable” and meekly talks about “raising the incident during a UN Security Council closed-door briefing on the Syria’s humanitarian situation”?!

    Well, the Russians are simply worthless suicidal scumbags. Not the ordinary people—far from that—but their inept leadershit are a bunch of despicable scumbags.

    They behave like aliens from another planet. Indeed, like from “another universe”.

    And we have already seen the results. Do you remember the General Assembly vote on Crimea (A/RES/68/262)?

    Basically, 100 voted in condemnation of Russia, while only 11 voted in support of Russia.

    That shows the pathetic level of Russia’s standing.
    Because Russia is losing all respect.
    And it will be worse.
    Russia will eventually lose all its allies
    No, there will be no WW3. There will more likely be a concerted attack against Russia after Russia has been expelled from the United Nations.

    The writing is on the wall: the Russians are worthless scumbags, their alliance is not worth the paper on which it is written. They are not like us, they are not like humans.

    And it does not matter if it is just some propaganda, or not. and it will eventually bring war on Russia.
    That is what the warmongers want—selling the idea of a nice little war to the public.

    Seriously, no other nation could possibly call such a thing “regrettable”. Words can be regrettable. Not such heinous crimes! They are outrageous, not regrettable!

      “There will more likely be a concerted attack against Russia after Russia has been expelled from the United Nations.”
      Wow, that’s quite a tirade. LOL
      By the way, Russia is in Syria to defeat the Jihadist, not to start a wider conflict.

      • RichardD

        There wouldn’t be a war if the planet was dejudified. Your evil cult manufactures these tragedies and should be outlawed for the betterment of humanity.

        • PZIVJ

          RichardD;
          Are you asking again for the GENOCIDE of the Jewish people on the whole planet. I can not fathom your hatred. :((((

          • Antikapitalista

            I am sure that he must have meant dezionization.

            But, actually, for only 3 boys abducted on occupied Palestinian land, the Jews unleashed a war in which they killed almost 3000 people.

            Thus, according to this calculation, the Holocaust (pardon my capitalization) (~ 6 000 000 victims) could also be explained like a humanitarian operation to save mankind (6 000 000 000 people)…

          • PZIVJ

            Copy and paste here. :DDD

          • Antikapitalista

            Next time try reading before blindly copying and pasting!

            That was a cold calculation. But if so are so hell-bent on seeing hearing a call for GENOCIDE and hatred in a SIMPLE CALCULATION, then… so, be it.

            I just really cannot account for your delusions.

            You’re crazy as fuck.

          • RichardD

            You’re trying to divert attention from Jew crime and evil with your false accusations. What does outlawing your evil cult have to do with genocide?

            The Zionists are the ones who wanted genocide so that they’d have the body count to get your scofflaw crime state admitted to the UN when it never should have been. Which is another reason that Judaism should be outlawed.

            Are you now going to embarrass yourself in front of the readers with a display of infantile idiocy, ignorance and stupidity.

      • Antikapitalista

        But the U.S.A. is in Syria to start a wider conflict. As always… Syria is a trifle matter in this regard.
        And the attack on Russia will start as a dismembering civil war. Heed my words!

    • Ricky Miller

      I do not share your description of Russia or Russians and I reject your dire view of the situation. this armed group loosely allied with the SAA did not coordinate their actions with Damascus or Russia’s armed force in Syria. They reacted to an incursion on their own and got hurt. One could hardly blame Russia for that. Secondly, I remember the despair I felt in 2015 when Syria was all but done, likely to become a chaotic colony of Washington and Sunni oil states. Aleppo was under siege, the government was closed out of the Eastern desert and Deir Ezzor was a write off. Let’s not miss seeing the forest for the trees, here. Russia, Iran, Syria’s SAA and allied tribes and Hezbollah worked together and fought together and produced a large scale comeback the likes of which I could not have imagined. And they are not done here. But people need to work together, work according to plan and communicate. It’s all an injustice but all involved need to fight smart.

      Lastly, please know your facts. The Crimea resolution was 24 votes in favor of Russia’s position and and mid seventies tally against and another mid seventy bloc abstained, meaning they refused to take a position. Hardly the defeat you described. Things are bad enough in the late Imperial era without giving in to our nightmares and imagining things to be worse than they actually are.

  • Ricky Miller

    The truth is that these were mostly tribal fighters who rejected joining up with the SDF. The “coalition” managed to get ISIS units to switch sides and fly the SDF flag and open conflict started last night flowing from a long running blood feud between this Eastern Euphrates tribe and ISIS units now flying the SDF flag. Then the U.S. stepped in and used multi-hundred million dollar weapons systems to flatten a tribal militia all in support of their new flag flying ISIS insurgent pets. The American forces have graduated from attacking and invading small countries one fortieth their size with one tenth their population and one seventieth the size of the U.S. economy to destroying most of a large extended family caught in the middle of all this and trying to defend their community. More brave superpower deeds, Hollywood should make another propaganda movie about how U.S. forces are really the underdogs here. Bring lots of blood for the set…

    COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLSHIT – PENTAGON – WE DON’T BELIEVE YOU!!!!

  • Lazy Gamer

    Its that fast to muster varied units for a counter? Travel time? Communication? Reconaissance? lol. If there was deconfliction, then the saa should have been given a chance to pull back. What is the sdf doing there anyway? I think they want Deir ezzor too

  • Nigel Maund

    Once again the Deep State undertakes a highly provocative act to try and get a military response and create an opportunity to stoke up a major war with Russia, Iran, Syria and Hezbollah. However, the latter are smart enough to know what the game is and how to counter the US – Israeli moves. Equipping the SAA and its partners with copious MANPAD’s may suitably deter this sort of premeditated provocative action in future. However, if the US or Israel lost three of four of their precious jets in a day they’d be a little upset!

  • Icarus Tanović

    I am hearing War drums, just like in “The Terminator main theme”.

  • ColinNZ

    It’s fake news folks. See below from a reliable analyst on Syrian Perspective with contacts in the SAA and Syrian Ministry of Defense …

    “Confirmed, the whole thing in Deir ez Zour was a false flag/fake news, no casualties reported from any [Syrian] allied forces. Local tribe dispute and the US spinned out to be 500 SAA attacking SDF. Major desperation on going to boost US morale.

      Bingo. Noice.

    I thought the Russians decided not to share intelligence after the US attacked Syria using 59 tomahawk missiles in April last year.

    On top of that – why bother trusting that particular source after all those fact free accusations that have been made over the years !

  • CyricRenner

    I don’t know, but I am disappointed. Where is Russia when the US dumps all over the SAA? What attack number is this now? I have lost count. Why would the SAA be undertaking a ground assault with no Air Cover? Where was the AA?

    I understand the standard response, Russia is not there to defend Syria’s airspace or the SAA apparently, but what is the point then? I guarantee if the Russian Air Force is involved, then this US attack never happens. We are talking about 100 dead here. This is in no minor pin prick.

    I wish Putin was not running for yet another term. He seems to be get weaker by the day. Please don’t give me the 3d chess either. Any state wonders what an alliance with Russia is worth. How can you form an Eurasian Union if the participating states know that Russia can not be be counted on to defend them?

    As far as Crimea is concerned, I hope people understand that Putin only acted because he had no choice. If he did nothing, The Nato flag would be flying over Sevastopol by now and Russia would have lost her port. Putin would have been toppled as a result. Guaranteed. He understood this, which is why he acted.

    i believe they did inform Russia…

  • MasterBlaster7

    American warmonger here to all the anti-American posters in here. HA HA HA…you fools just got curb stomped. You were warned that American advisers were in the area yet you tried to snatch some oil out from underneath the Kurds. Doom on you. Now go cry about it some more in these posts…but you all know who runs the show.

    So, this is “just” an ethnic purge… something like an US final solution. I find this very … eugenic… let’s duckly trumpet on.

    Kind of patheric fun, that You take a well known russian propaganda site as the oppinion of the americans about it.

  • Bob

    The US has created it own dilemma in east Dier Ezzore – they have YPG dominated SDF occupying Arab lands – this is politically and culturally unsustainable in medium to long term. The US is forcibly occupying these lands as political blackmail tool – in last ditch effort of their regime change policy against Syria. By forcibly holding the territory east of Euphrates US seeks to try and force political power concessions from Damascus leadership.
    But in meantime, the actual localized Arab population of east Dier Ezzore province is likely to resent YPG domination, and at some point start active opposition and actions. At which point US has two choices – engage in direct Arab majority repression and or localized Arab ethnic cleansing – either of which they may well actually attempt under the standard rubric of an anti-ISIS/ terrorism campaign. The US has created this dilemma for itself via short term and desperate actions to salvage their regime change project, that failed once the Russian’s started rolled back the advances of sponsored militant hordes.

    • John Whitehot

      “this is politically and culturally unsustainable in medium to long term”

      Somebody should explain the americans that “long term” doesn’t mean “next week”.

    I think Syria should sue the United States in the International Court for its role in the revolution, providing material aid to terrorists, invasion, occupation, and murder.

  • gustavo

    Of course they are lying, as usual (WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION). However, there is a detail that I want to point out…..For sure, Russia detected on time this attack (radar, satellites, drons, planes), and it looks like they did nothing to stop this attack, or to retaliate. This is interesting.

  • 888mladen .

    SF why there there has been no reporting on this incident.
