Syria: Ten People Killed, Injured In New Ras Al-Ain Blast (Video)

Support SouthFront

On August 27 morning, a booby-trapped motorcycle exploded in the northeastern Syrian town of Ras al-Ain, which is occupied by Turkish forces.

The booby-trapped motorcycle was reportedly parked near a shop in the al-Bared roundabout in Ras al-Ain’s town center.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the explosion killed two people. At least eight others were injured, some of them are reportedly in a critical condition.

In the last two weeks, Ras al-Ain witnessed a series of protests and clashes. A Turkish decision to appoint a militant of the al-Hamza Division as the director of the town’s border crossing provoked the locals.

Kurdish forces are usually accused of orchestrating such attacks in Turkish-occupied areas in northern and northeastern Syria. Nevertheless, the recent crisis in Ras al-Ain suggests that the al-Hamza Division may be responsible.

Turkish-backed militants have been wreaking havoc in Ras al-Ain since capturing it from Kurdish forces in October of 2019.

The new explosion in Ras al-Ain will likely lead to a backlash against Turkey and its proxies, who are doing nothing to secure the town and its people.

Yes, Kurds try to avoid civile casualties. The tempting explanation most likely seemes to be to make terror against the civilians, so they leave. Turks and affiliates seemes to have no support there.


Americans and the Turks have brought nothing but misery to Syria, in a spiteful terror campaign they can not win.

johnny rotten

When your enemy makes a mistake do not disturb him, encourage him to continue, he will do his work for your benefit, even if very sorry for the innocent Syrian civilian casualties this is the reality of the war.

350 diplomatic flights carry weapons for terrorists


By Dilyana Gaytandzhieva – April 29, 20182216233

Azerbaijan’s Silk Way Airlines transports weapons with diplomatic clearance for Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Congo.

At least 350 diplomatic Silk Way Airlines (an Azerbaijani state-run company) flights transported weapons for war conflicts across the world over the last 3 years. The state aircraft of Azerbaijan carried on-board tens of tons of heavy weapons and ammunition headed to terrorists under the cover of diplomatic flights. Documents implicating Silk Way Airlines in arms supplies were sent to me by an anonymous twitter account – Anonymous Bulgaria.

The leaked files include correspondence between the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Azerbaijan to Bulgaria with attached documents for weapons deals and diplomatic clearance for overflight and/or landing in Bulgaria and many other European countries, USA, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Turkey, to name a few.

According to these documents, Silk Way Airlines offered diplomatic flights to private companies and arms manufacturers from the US, Balkans, and Israel, as well as to the militaries of Saudi Arabia, UAE, and US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), and the military forces of Germany and Denmark in Afghanistan and of Sweden in Iraq. Diplomatic flights are exempt of checks, air bills, and taxes, meaning that Silk Way airplanes freely transported hundreds of tons of weapons to different locations around the world without regulation. They made technical landings with stays varying from a few hours to up to a day in intermediary locations without any logical reasons such as needing to refuel the planes.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations, operators, transporting dangerous goods forbidden for transportation by air by civil aircrafts, must apply for exemption for transportation of dangerous goods by air.

According to the documents, Azerbaijan’s Foreign Ministry has sent instructions to its embassies in Bulgaria and many other European countries to request diplomatic clearance for Silk Way Airlines flights. The embassies sent diplomatic notes to the Foreign Ministry of the relevant country to request such exemption. The Foreign Ministry sent back a note signed by the local civil aviation authorities giving exemption for the transportation of dangerous goods
