On July 1, a warplane of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) conducted a reconnaissance mission over the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf where the US-led coalition maintains a large garrison, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Al-Tanf garrison is located right on Syria’s border with Iraq and Jordan. Around 200 US troops and some 300 militants of the Revolutionary Commando Army (MaT), a local proxy of the coalition, are usually present at the garrison.
The US-led coalition maintains a 55 kilometers no-fly zone around the garrison. Despite this, VKS warplanes conduct reconnaissance sorties over the area on a regular basis.
The new Russian reconnaissance sortie came just a few days after a visit by Brigadier Karl Harris, Deputy Commanding General of the US-led coalition’s Operation Inherent Resolve, to al-Tanf garrison. Duing the visit, the senior US officer met with Brigadier General Muhannad Al Tala’, the commander of the MaT, supposedly to discuss the war on ISIS.
Russia has been growing frustrated with the actions of the US-led coalition’s proxies in al-Tanf garrison. On June 16, a series of Russian airstrikes hit positions of the MaT near the garrison. The airstrikes were reportedly a response to a recent attack by MaT militants that resulted in Russian military casualties. The US-led coalition was alerted ahead of the airstrikes, which caused material losses only.
Less than ten days after the airstrikes, the Russian Ministry of Defense accused the US-led coalition and its proxies in al-Tanf garrison of training and supporting ISIS cells in Syria’s central region.
The US claims that its troops are present in al-Tanf to combat ISIS. However, the garrison was in fact established to block a strategic highway that links the Syrian capital, Damascus, with the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
The recent movements of the US-led coalition and its proxies in al-Tanf could soon lead to a military escalation in southeastern Syria.
“The airstrikes were reportedly a response to a recent attack by MaT militants that resulted in Russian military casualties.”… How many?… And why doesn’t the Russian Federation wipe this fucking American base off the map as the U.S. never officially declared war on Syria EVER yet like Libya, Yemen they are still “parked there”?…
And as for this – “The US-led coalition was alerted ahead of the airstrikes, which caused material losses only.”… Did Russia have to request “permission” from the U.$. before defending their own???
Russia is too inferior and has to get approval for every action from its US masters.
I guess that’s why Putin is in love with them by virtue of the BOE/Federal Re$erve setting the “low”… low… bargain basement price for physical precious metal. Lets face facts now…
The Russian Government especially their anointed bitch aka “pootie-poot” ostrich legs, is in bed with the Anglo-Zi0ni$ta’s… And has no intention of allowing their own markets and their own oil and gas to set the price for commodities!…
Russia is just another absentee Landlord like the rest that will control their own taxpayers the same way Western Europe does -because they “kike it” that way!…
Dream on gimp!
gringos are feminized morons
after you sodomized by Taliban they say say your loose rectum superior diarreaha
Exactly, this base needs to be gone asap
It won’t because AIPAC controls politicians from both parties, the military top brass and the MSM. The US has spent tens of trillions and had tens of thousands of its citizens killed because of a few thousand Orthodox leeches illegally occupying tiny enclaves in the West Bank therefore enraging over one billion Muslims for many decades. Those settlements have got to be the most expensive real estate in the world and the costliest in terms of bloodshed of both Christians and Muslims. For Israelis not so much. USA first.
The fascist capitalist feudalist paedophilic and genocidal anglo khazarians will be soon deleted from the face of Earth. Their fascist capitalist criminal nest “countries ” will be nuked heavily in order the 2 SCUM pedophile races not to rise up satanism again ! Amen! Love for the rest of Humanity, DEATH for the fascist capitalist genocidal maggots! Amen! Lord is with US THE PEOPLE!
There´s another American proxy garrison at al-Zuqf, about 60kms ENE of al-Tanf. The Americans said they withdrew from al-Zuqf in 2017. What´s the situation in al-Zuqf now?
Russian admin, bomb the place and send a message. If personnel are killed so be it. They shouldn’t even be there. The US constructing a base and housing terrorists there, is already an act of war against Syria and its allies.
The kitchen will never be good to cook unless all the cockroaches are gone.
Why not allow Syria to bomb up all of the invading forces and terrorists who have not been invited? Make that turkey and the US plus all of their terrorists and all of their bases. Russia, why appease them when they are SO HOSTILE anyway? It is time that russia became the top man of the world and that other nations cower and fear , comply with Russias demands and are too afraid to cross her. The decent nations need not have any fear though.
I don’t even recognize my country anymore, our founding fathers warned of this, and they were right
We’re run by Jews. The founders were not Jews.
If I had a buck for each and every poof posting all anti orthodoxy sendiments here,i’d have enough money to buy me as much wire needeed to strangle these low life coward scumbags indeed,the bottom line lie once,twice,3 ,4 times no escaping punishment,enjoy your vaccines,hyperinflation and come winter time freeze,either way your doomed to failure,lest only brave men deal with the truth but if it offends you mr fix nothing ever,oh im sorry I offended you,heres my apology and one more thing, FUK YOU ASSWHOLE!
God Bless Mother Russia: Woe unto degenerate sodomites of this centurys for their resolve is null+void!
USA TODAY IS THE NEW GENERATION AIDS OF PLANET EARTH,WOE UNTO THE FED RESERVE FILTH!
TELL AMERUCUNT CORPORATO PARASITE UNDERWRITER TO FUKOFF HANDS OFF OUR WEALTH, STICK TO LOCAL PRODUCT SAVE 350 BUCKS WHILST VALUE INCREASES 15K,THATS HOW YOU DO IT, USA ARE PARASITES,NO ONE NEEDS TO PAY EXTRA FEES JUST TO KEEP AMERICANO POOFTER RICH! Get my drift? Like it or lump it,to destroy the fed you must reject all their burnt offerings or try harder.
Syria should load up a commercial jet with high explosives and a suicidal pilot and fly it directly down into that camp. There is no reason for Americans to be there, except to prove to their Jewish masters that Israel is the boss.
Bomb it to rubble
Good way to punish the Americans for what they are doing in Ukraine would be to wipe tanf off the map.
Has the US ever carried out a single attack against ISIS from that base in all those years?
Fácil sería destruir esa base si los rusos quisieran, no tendría ninguna respuesta del régimen decrépito LGTB de s-o-r-o-s biden, ahora bien para dar a entender poder se tiene que demostrar con poderosa tecnología, un bombardeo ruso a esa base podría ser con bombas de cobalto que prácticamente convertiría en polvo todo lo que ahí vive, se irían derechitos al averno mientras que el régimen LGTB globalista y su brazo armado OTANero tomarían nota del sucedió !!! Se tiene que demostrar poder y no estar empantanados cómo en Ucrania!!!
I’m surprised the western media didn’t twist this event into a propaganda piece and call it a “illegal Russian Provocation”? Like they have done so many times in the past. Oh maybe because they don’t want to draw too much attention to the fact that the USA was never officially invited into Syria by the Syrian government but Russia was. And they don’t want to draw attention to the hypocrisy of the USA complaining about “Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine”? should the dumbed down USA population start questioning the validity of their governments statement on this?
EXTERMINATE THE USA FORCES NOW = Z =
many impatient idiots at SF think like amerikans—the long term view taken byRussians encourages amerikants to lose focus, spend trillions on proxy wars, their 1000 + military bases, their incompetent military etc—this while their obese population can only pay for a Big Mac or discounted CIA crack….now that abortion is illegal every US crack whore will pop out 3 brain cell mutants every 10 months
This is criminality. Clearly shows how Russia break all international human rights rules, threatening innocent Americans who get mood swings and cant sleep at night because of the constant noise and aggressive attitude from the Russian warplanes at Al Tanf. International criminality!
MaT are Magaweer al-Thawra — TERRORISTS. al-Tanf is a CONCENTRATION CAMP where Syrian civilians are imprisoned and STARVED.
