Pro-Opposition Sources Report Fresh 'Russian Casualties' Citing Fake FB Page Of Hmeimim Airbase

FILE IMAGE: Russian Special Operations Forces troops are in Syria

Several pro-opposition sources reported on January 17 that four Russian service members were “killed” during clashes in the southeastern countryside of Syria’s Idlib.

These claims, which were quickly adopted by many outlets such as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), were first made by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and a fake Facebook page claiming to represent the Russian Hmeimim Air Base.

The so-called “Central Channel for Hmeimim Air Base” Facebook page was exposed more than a year ago as a fake news source.

A new Facebook feature launched late in 2018 revealed that the fake news page was being run by three admins, two of them live in Turkey while the third lives in Canada.

Despite being exposed as a fake news source and falsely claiming to be an official page of the Russian state [Ministry of Defense of Russia had denied this], Facebook is yet to shut the malicious page down.

The page has been whitewashing claims made by HTS for more than two years now. This indicates that it could be linked to the terrorist group.

Many pro-opposition sources are still relying on the fake news page as a “credible source” to this day. This has turned the page into a hub for hopeless opposition supporters looking for empty words to make up for their repeated losses.

    Central Channel for Hmeimim Air Base Facebook page”
    With “three admins, two of them live in Turkey while the third lives in Canada

    ————-
    So we have 2 Turks from Turkey + 1 Turk from Canada
    getting savvy in killing Russians withe their big mouth
    heroically showing how easy that can be.
    You just need some free time and minimal resources….
    That 3 Turks is still much less anti – Russians than what we have here on “SouthFront”…

    Perhaps all of them should declare all Russians dead (together with Assad) and declare their victory altogether….
    Since that is the only way left for them to win….

      An internecine NATO shooting war would be a joy so see :)

      • Issam

        I was shocked when NATO’s troops were asking for an immediate psychological treatment after the Iranians ballistic missiles attack. If they can’t even handle that situation, how can they handle a full-scale war with Russia ???

        • FlorianGeyer

          NATO are experts in virtual reality.
          It’s a world where NATO always wins :)

        • Assad must stay

          they cant and never will

          • Zionism = EVIL

            That is 5GW (5th generation warfare) or asymmetrical resistance, at which Iran and Hezbollah excel is the only solution to getting of the Americunt arseholes and their NATO arselickers.

          • Jens Holm

            Thats not correct. Danes are against ISIS as well as helping the Bagdad Governess by making good military forces.

            We are not in any dispute between USA and Iran.

            Our troops are nopt spendables as Yours. Therefore we right away send debriefers to them and also retreat away from ballistic attacks. Thats not our war.

            We should not be among dirtbags like here, which after many years cant even see we spend money at You for nothing.

            Last year Your crap cost the Danosh Goverment 40 million dollars. What a waste. We should have given our pigs extra food and made money on that in China.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          They are pussies and child killers, never seen real weapons fired at them. NATO and Americunts and their Zionist masters only attack unarmed women and children but need psychological treatment when someone can hit back. Iran should never have given them a warning. These are occupation criminals who have killed, maimed and displaced millions of Iraqis, Syrians and Lebanese, not to mention Palestinians.

          • Jens Holm

            If that was true, none of You would be there.

        • Jens Holm

          Those never are meant and educated as troops against Russia.

          You not even know who they are and why they are there. You probatly only know watches are for car bombs only.

        it is obvious that you ” study playboy”and too much of masturbation affects your brain so you talk nonsense

  • Prince Teutonic

    It’s a war… Casualties happen on both sides…

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Not if you are only used to killing unarmed women and children and stealing their lands, oil and natural resources,

      • Jens Holm

        We – not Denmark – BUYs OIL. We dont steal.

        I know nothing about women and children with no arms. I see many Hisbollahs having only one leg or half a leg.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    For 5 years now, the dumbass Americunts are hoping that Russia would suffer casualties and get bogged down in Syria and that sure ain’t happening so the miserable terrorist supporting cowards are stooping to childish Jew owned Facebook fakery. Russia, SAA, Iran and their allies need to get on with reclaiming every inch of Syria, including the Golan and kick the Americunt arseholes out of the region. Only resistance will work.

    • Jens Holm

      So for what reason is Allah make You suffer that much?

    Nice someone try to make some cleaning + + +.

    I had never seen the U.S so scared since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the U.S is in a race against time. They have to eliminate any trace of possibles competitors otherwise their economic bubbles will explode without any way to control it, without any opposition the U.S will cover all their dirty rags from it’s fake economy again as they did in 2008.

    Right now the U.S has an advantage in conventional warfare (but not in the nuclear field), that’s why they are so eager to butcher their own numbers, but the thing goes dry as the time goes on.

    My point is this, as long as you can delay the U.S from a war… they are gonna be weakened by the time, you need to hold you ground, economic bubbles will do what they best do, explode.

    • Z.P.

      “Right now the U.S has an advantage in conventional warfare (but not in the nuclear field)”
      *”Not in the nuclear field” only but in hyper-sonic weapons also.
      I think that it is very important to underline hyper-sonic weapons since they are game changing weapons.

      Zircon ( range 1000Km speed Mach 9) and Kinzhal range 3000Km speed Mach 12.
      With airplanes, ships, subs armed with those missiles aircraft carrier battle groups will have denial of access measured in thousands of kilometers which will practically make them useless. Since their targets will be out of the range of their naval aviation (specially F-35)

      “…….Fmr CIA Officer Suggests US Hacked Ukrainian Plane Transponder To Provoke Iran Shootdown…….”

      Now that is fake news!

      • Z.P.

        why?
        not possible to hack?

        • TomWonacott

          Sure it’s possible. Where is the evidence? Maybe Russia hacked the transponder!

          • Z.P.

            Yeah sure and why would Russia do that?
            Evidence is in the motive.
            I don’t claim anything. I don’t know what exact explanation is…
