Russia Deployed 600 Paratroopers At Key Northeastern Syria Airport (Photos)

The Russian military had deployed 600 paratroopers at al-Qamishli Airport in northeastern Syria, Russian sources revealed on July 3.

The first batch of 300 paratroops arrived at the airport, which is the main base of the Russian military in the northeastern Syria, on July 1. Two days later, a second batch of 300 paratroopers arrive at the airport. The paratroops were moved into the airport aboard several Russian Il-76 airlifters.

The deployment came amid ongoing preparations by Turkish military and its proxies to launch a new large-scale operation against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in northern and northeastern Syria.

The Russia military has been bolstering its presence in al-Qamishli airport to deal with this new Turkish threat. In May, Su-34 fighter bombers and Ka-52 attack helicopters were deployed at the airport. Later in June, the airport’s defenses were straightened with several additional Pantsir-S1 air-defense systems.

While Russia is not a backer of the SDF, it is the guarantor of several de-escalation agreements with Turkey on northern and northeastern Syria.

Moscow believes that a new Turkish military operation in northern and northeastern Syria could hurt the humanitarian situation in these regions, push Kurds towards separatism and even risk a full-blown confrontation between Ankara and Damascus.

Russia has been engaging diplomatically with Turkey to prevent a new operation, so does Iran. Yet, recent statements by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan indicate that Ankara is determined to go on with military plans.

Erdogan is Ikhwan not Wahhabi.

Everyone who helped ISIS in Syria is a Wahhabi or worse yet a Wahhabi puppet.

Chris Gr

ISIS was helped by US and Saudis. Turkey supported Muslim Brotherhood, Israel supported nobody.

I am reposting this important announcement.

Iran, Russia, China and 10 other countries to run war drills in Latin America mid-August 2022. I’m sure the Yankistanis won’t mind. It is just an exercise. Monroe who?

The Resistance Alliance is too powerful for the Satan loving Zionist controlled West and affiliated trash. The Almighty Creator stands on the side of the righteous which the US, GB, Israhell are far from. It’s only a matter of time until they are reduced to meaningless nothingness.

Chris Gr

Do you think that BRICS support Iran? As far as I know, Russia, India and Brazil are in favour if Israel.

Ioan

Who is going to sanction Turkey and Israel when they blatantly invade and occupy other countries?

Its a case of “comply with Russian Law or leave ” – they are collecting data on Russian nationals and using propaganda against Russia. 600,000 Jews live in Russia – the chief rabbi of Moscow has fled along with several 1000 Jews- France has the most Jews. This other “news ” about “war drills ” is publicised by the usual western suspects – lying propaganda – remove DDG as it now directs you to anti-Russia propaganda as bad as Google.

Did you notice that they took another Jew in Moscow under the white hands? Those. got to a VERY influential liberal elite, in fact, residency in our territory. To those who handed out certain blessings in order to harm us. Without the permission of these people, as without the permission of Soros in the West. Not a step. They “pardoned and executed.” Appointed to and removed from them. To very high positions. The threads penetrated in many directions. These people allowed or did not allow singers, actors, writers, artists, directors, composers, journalists, heads of laboratories, rectors and deans, scientists and pseudoscientists, haute cuisine cooks and effective managers. Their power was great. It permeated the whole country through and through. most of the criminal world was also supervised. They carefully developed and supported corruption, because the positions and favor of higher officials were bought with printed overseas papers. This is their slogan: “If you don’t steal with us, then you’ll turn it in tomorrow. Either steal or leave.” And it is with them that we have to fight on all fronts. It was these people who staged Bolotnaya and longed for a coup. It was they who needed the prediction that our “President will leave this year.” They tried many times to organize his elimination. There are still many of them in the banking and bureaucratic sphere. Their way of life seduced many of our nouveau riches and they sought to serve him in order to become “their own” there. They wanted to starve us out. But here, well, it just doesn’t work out. Everything is against them.

Thanks for the link but I dont speak Russian nor do I use Google translation but I reckon I know what you are getting at-its all about subtle control to direct a countries actions . George Soros used NGO,s linked to his organisation which wasn’t subtle enough as he was easily found out.

Jnoub

What’s wrong with google translation? It’s not always accurate but at least you’ll get an idea of what’s being talked about

Donnchadh

It tracks you round the Web – I dont like that , I have nothing Google on my Linux PC ,its the biggest public tracker in the world Amazon AWS is just as bad – both contracted to supply the NSA/CIA with your info.Servers in the USA -have you read the small print US government requests info from them all the time. Cloudflare is just as bad thats why US military spending $billions on a SECURE version.

I assume Iran now has ‘airport security’ duties in the south of Syria.

Turkey is still a member of nato. The same nato who are attacking Ukraine and Syria. The same nato who attacked Afghanistan and Libya and Iraq. The same nato now attacking Russia and China.

I don’t suppose that creating a diversion for their nato boss fella isn’t beyond the realms of possibility. The US and its nato poodles want to create as many diversions as possible.

Make Constantinople Great Again. Erdogan is a snake. Turkey is broke and has no money to waste on military adventurism. Russia needs to push Turkey and its’ zionist master right out of Syria for good. I am sure General Kadyrov would be happy to show these devils some Chechen hospitality. Assad is a good man and a capable leader and Syria has been abused enough by the corrupt war mongering zionist West.

Qamishli airbase needs medium range air defense like BUK-M2 or BUK-M3. Those mi-24 and su-34 need protection. At least deploy several more Pantsir-S2 or Tor and extra anti-stealth radars. RUAF needs to turn Qamishli AFB into a air defense fortress just like Hmeimim AFB is.
