Members of the Russian military police have started patrolling the districts of Beit Sahm, Babbila, Sidi Miqdad and Yelda in southern Damascus, which have been recently liberated from militants, the Russian news agency TASS reported on May 13 citing own correspondent.

According to the report, patrols, both dismounted and motorized, were deployed for a round-the-clock duty at all major streets of the liberated districts as well as stationary posts were set up.

Earlier, 8,467 people, including 3,283 members of opposition armed groups and 5,184 members of the their families, were moved from the aforementioned districts to the militant-held parts of the provinces of Aleppo and Idlib in the framework of a reconciliation agreement reached between militants and the government.

A part of the southern Damascus countryside still remains under control of ISIS. Syrian government forces are currently combating the terrorist group in the areas of Yarmouk, Taqaddom and al-Hajar al-Aswad.

    Russia is a guarantee to peace and security, hope that one day all nations will know that.

      Easy to patrol. Not that easy to intercept missiles to save soldiers who fight on the ground to liberate lands so that Russia can patrol.

      • Rob

        Well done. Good intelligent point.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Totally agree.

      • Hole

        Without russian help a black flag would fly over Damascus.

        • Serious

          And without the soldiers that are dying on the ground, what would happen ???

          • Feudalism Victory

      Israeli-made weapons among arms handed over by militants in Damascus.
      Israeli-made landmines were found in a large trove of medium and heavy weapons handed over by rebels in southern Damascus, Syria’s state media reported. Damascus has repeatedly accused Tel Aviv of aiding militants.

      This is far from the first report of Israeli-made weapons being stockpiled by militants. In February, it was reported that the Syrian army stumbled onto warehouses that were stacked with weapons, some of which were Israeli-made, as they were inspecting the Al Boukamal and Al Mayadin areas in Deir ez-Zor, which was liberated by the Syrian forces from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the fall of last year.

      Since the onset of hostilities in Syria, the Syrian military has repeatedly seized armaments and munitions with inscriptions in Hebrew. In April 2016, Syrian forces pulled over a vehicle packed with Israeli-made mines, mortars, rockets and hand grenades that were bound for an area controlled by ISIS in eastern Syria. This is a proof that ISIS and Al-Qaeda are fake Muslims.

        It won’t be long before Ole bibi asks for his weapons back..

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          Send them air freight in the same weapons supplied.

    It’s nice to see the police doing something other than hand out parking or speeding tickets.

    • Tudor Miron

      Off topic. Jerry, have you seen Kondrashov’s “Putin” documentary (available with English subtitles)? Some interesting facts about presidend but also some notable moments of fighting in Syria and Chechnia.

      • jerry hamilton

        I have started downloading it, may take a couple of days as I have small bandwidth.
        From bits I have seen I am looking forward to it very much. Thanks.
        Anything like that I will like.

        • Tudor Miron

          I told it to Floryan and I want to tell it to you. Would you ponder visiting Russia and participating in Immortal Regiment march next May (2019)? This is one very special experience – walking along with a million of people honoring their ancestors. Very special energy to it.

          • jerry hamilton

            Yes. I would.

      • jerry hamilton

        Just watched it. What a fantastic documentary.
        He is everything I thought him to be.
        I am very much looking forward to the second part.

    America and Israel both are notorious terrorist states. I don’t know how the world communities let them to produce and keep Nuclear, biological and chemical weapons and its delivery systems for the killing of world humanity. I think the world community is totally powerless. This is not democracy….

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      and Uk/France are not? Along with the rest of NATO countries that participate in the bombings of innocent people, in weddings and funerals, or while they are at their homes?

      • Rob

        America, UK, France and Israel all are notorious terrorists states but US and Israel both are migrant states and both are worst terrorists states.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          and the ones they created the colonies and control them to this day, why are they out of your equation? That be UK. If you learn a bit of real history, you may realize also who the real terrorist are and who controls them all.

          • Shylo Duffy

            The UK taught the US in their day the UK was as evil as Satan himself along with their Popes.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            was?? and now is what a benevolent Uk? seriously.

    Looking for information on an independent journalist – Abdul Kareem, from “Face the Truth” youtube.com series of interviews with Syrian and Arab rebel factions.
    Hello everybody,

    I am curious if there is a residing place or more public information available on Bilal Abdul Kareem. On the Internet, it says that he is American, worked as a journalist for NY Times (I think…) and developed an appreciation for Islam and the civil conflict in Syria.He appears very often in a series of interviews, presumably in Syria’s Idlib province and other places, sometimes with rebel commanders and sometimes with sunni clerics.But, lately, he seems off the radar screen. How can he be tracked, because at his contact data from his youtube channel there is no response.What is known about him? (Thanks).

    I am a student in journalism.

    • neil barron

      No your not, it’s all Goebbels Propaganda.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      and I am the pope come over so I can bless you. Is the first time a journalist ask for help from a discussion forum you must be not very bright maybe you should look another area to study. Janitor may suit you best. Does not require any heavy thinking.

    • jerry hamilton

      I know of this man Abdul Kareem.
      He was last seen working as a male stripper in Istanbul.
