Syrian Pantsir-S1 Systems Intercept Rockets Over Al-Dumayr Airbase

Illustrative image

On February 24, several Pantsir-S1 air defense systems of the Syrian Air Defense Forces (SADF) intercepted five rockets over the al-Dumayr airbase located 25km northeast of the Eastern Ghouta pocket, according to Syrian pro-government activists.

The Russian-made air defense system Pantsir-S1 has proven itself as an effective countermeasure against medium size projectiles. Similar systems have been able to intercept several rockets over the Russian Hmeimim airbase on many occasions. On December 27, 2017 the system successfully intercepted two Grad rockets over the Russian airbase.

Few minutes after the interception, several Syrian opposition news outlets reported that Jaysh al-Islam fighters had shelled the al-Dumayr airbase with several rockets and artillery rounds from their positions in the East Qalamun pocket, only 8km north of the airbase.

The Al-Dumayr airbase is currently hosting a joint operations room of the Tiger Forces and the Syrian Arab army as well as several heavy rocket launchers, according to Syrian opposition activists.

In a related development, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported that militants operating in East Ghouta had shelled the districts of the Syrian capital, Damascus with more than 55 mortars and rockets over the last 24 hours.

A source of the Syrian Police in Damascus city told SANA that seven civilians were injured in the random shelling of the opposition militiamen. The source added that the shelling had resulted in massive material loses.

Jaysh al-Islam had the Rukn al-Din district in the northern part of Damascus with a heavy unguided artillery rocket on February 23. One civilian was killed and fifteen others were injured in the attack.

    The next few weeks will be pivotal and the US Coalition of Terror will be doing all it can to disrupt operations in Ghouta.

    I am confident though that the SAA and allies will have prepared for diversionary attacks, especially in the Deir Ezzor /Palmyra axis .

    It is an ideal area for Iranian armed Drones to police and harass the US ISIS gangs in the deserts..

      The disruption just started, by the UN resolution.

For Americans and the western is not abut people, but about presrving the terrorist

        Betrayed Syria, are you serious? its a certainty that before any UN resolution on Syria are voted on the Russians will have consulted with Assad. You make it sound like they are not talking with each other! Besides the resolution does not cover military operations against Daesh, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra Front etc. The SAA can continue with the East Ghouta liberation

        • PZIVJ

          Jihadist are shelling Damascus on a daily basis, so I think the ceasefire plan is a non starter. SAA attack to start from the south into more open terrain I think.

          • FlorianGeyer

            That is what I surmised with my limited tactical experience. It can be justified easily as well due to the terrorist ballistic missile storage in a quarry there and the strikes on Damascus. .

            After that begin to chop up the pocked into smaller chunks as in Aleppo.

            I would think the Russian 5th generation wing is a silent warning to the US and Israel. Any attacks of Russian bases by those two can be replied in kind :)

        BUT they also said in the same article “… and pointedly mentioned that the ceasefire does not preclude forces inside Syria from targeting “Islamic State, Al Nusrah and other extremist organizations”, because of this we will probably see the continuation of Damascus Steel because all the factions targeted by the operation ARE TERRORISTS. If that is the case, then it was all pointless wordplay and waste of breath to hold that vote and discussion, which.
        Fuck the terrorists!! NO CEASEFIRES! ONLY DEATH FOR TERRORISTS!

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          agree but if is a way to get the civilians out of the way then that way must be seek and found. SAA is there to protect the Syrians, not bomb them to smithereens.

          If they start behaving like the terrorist then they no better than them, are they?

          • FlorianGeyer

            The SAA has always sought to protect civilians ,unlike the US Military and Israel.

            Remember Raqqa and Mosul. Both devastated and large cities still have the stench of many thousands of rotting civilian corpses, months after the 90% destruction by the US forces ans ISIS.

          Jihadists and Foreign Officers arrested at East Aleppo

          VOLTAIRE NETWORK | 19 DECEMBER 2016

          Voltaire Network— Jihadists at East Aleppo have been authorized to choose between heading towards Idleb (Al-Qaïda) or Rakka (Daesh), or being taken as prisoners. They were taken to [their preferred destination] by bus under the protection of Syria and Russia and in the presence of UN representatives.

          Some of them tried to flee by mingling among the civilian population. When 120,000 inhabitants were being registered, the Intelligence Services managed to identify them and to arrest more than 1,500 of them.

          Farès Shehabi, an MP and the Chairman of Aleppo’s Chamber of Commerce, has published a preliminary, non-exhaustive list of 14 foreign officers that were taken prisoners in the Nato bunker. They are:

          Mutaz Kanoğlu — Turkey

          David Scott Winer — United States

          David Shlomo Aram — Israel

          Muhamad Tamimi — Qatar

          Muhamad Ahmad Assabian — Saudi Arabia

          Abd-el-Menham Fahd al Harij — Saudi Arabia

          Islam Salam Ezzahran Al Hajlan — Saudi Arabia

          Ahmed Ben Naoufel Al Darij — Saudi Arabia

          Muhamad Hassan Al Sabihi — Saudi Arabia

          Hamad Fahad Al Dousri — Saudi Arabia

          Amjad Qassem Al Tiraoui — Jordan

          Qassem Saad Al Shamry — Saudi Arabia

          Ayman Qassem Al Thahalbi — Saudi Arabia

          Mohamed Ech-Chafihi El Idrissi — Morocco

          This list does not include the names of officers who did not want to be identified. Clearly, there are other prisoners representing other states involved in this war against the Syrian Arab Republic. Under the Geneva Convention, photos may not be published.

          In February 2012, around forty Turkish officers and twenty French officers were returned to their army of origin, through either the conduit of Mikhail Fradkov (the director of the Russian intelligence services) or through the direct intervention of the Admiral Edouard Guillaud (French Military Chief of Staff) at the border with Lebanon.

          • 1691

            I don’t have a problem with diversity as long as the ‘diversity ‘ is playing the tune:” When in Rome do like the Romans”. As for religion… it is something personal however it is now turned into a powerful weapon serving the “divide& conquer” agenda. Both diversity and religion have been used for globalization purposes.

            Aggression disguised as civil wars

            by Thierry Meyssan

            If we accept to take a step back, we notice that the different conflicts which have bloodied the Greater Middle East for the last sixteen years, from Afghanistan to Libya, have not been a succession of civil wars, but the application of regional strategies. Thierry Meyssan reminds us of the objectives and the tactics of these wars since the « Arab Springs » and observes the preparation of those to come.

            VOLTAIRE NETWORK | DAMASCUS (SYRIA) | 27 FEBRUARY 2018

            ESPAÑOL FRANÇAIS ITALIANO ROMÂNĂ РУССКИЙ PORTUGUÊS

            At the end of 2010, a series of wars began, initially presented as popular uprisings. Successively, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen were swept under by the « Arab Spring », a reprise of the « Great Arab Revolt » of 1915, initiated by Lawrence of Arabia – with the difference that this time they would not be relying on the support of the Wahhabites, but the Muslim Brotherhood.

            All these events had been carefully planned by the United Kingdom from 2004, as revealed by the internal documents of the Foreign Office leaked by the British whistle-blower Derek Pasquill [1]. With the exception of the bombing of Tripoli (Libya), in August 2011, they were born not only of the non-violent destabilisation techniques of Gene Sharp [2], but also of William S. Lind’s « 4th Generation War » [3].

            Implemented by the US armies, the British project of the « Arab Spring » overlapped with that of the United States military – the destruction of societies and states at the regional level, as formulated by Admiral Arthur Cebrowski, popularised by Thomas Barnett [4], and illustrated by Ralph Peters [5].

            The events seemed to calm down in the second quarter of 2012, so that on 30 June in Geneva, the United States and Russia agreed to a new distribution of the Middle East.

            However, the United States did not honour their signature. A second war began in July 2012, in Syria, then in Iraq. Small groups and commandos were succeeded by vast land armies composed of jihadists. This was no longer a 4th Generation War, but a classic war of position, adapted from the techniques of Abou Bakr Naji [6].

            This time, in accordance with the work of Robin Wright [7], the intention to prevent the re-opening of the « Silk Road » was superimposed on the two previous objectives when China revealed its ambition.

            The events seemed to calm down during the last quarter of 2017, after the defeat of Daesh, but the investments in the conflicts were such that it seemed impossible for the partisans of war to give up without attaining their goals.

            We then watched a second attempt to relaunch hostilities with the Kurdish question. After a first failure in Iraq, there was a second failure in Syria. In both cases, the violence of the aggression forced Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria to unite against their exterior enemy.

            Finally, the United Kingdom decided to pursue its initial objective of domination via the Muslim Brotherhood, and for that purpose, created the « Little Group », as revealed by Richard Labeviere [8]. This secret structure includes Saudi Arabia, the United States, France and Jordan.

            From their side, the United States, applying Kurt Campbell’s « Pivot to Asia » [9], have just decided to concentrate their forces against China. For that purpose, they are reforming the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue with Australia, India and Japan.

            Meanwhile, Western public opinion believes that the single conflict which has already devastated all of the Greater Middle East, from Afghanistan to Libya, is a succession of civil wars for democracy.

            answer sooooo simple: the terrorists will shoot rockets and mortars like hell……SAA will have to shoot back to protect damascus civilians…..consequence..the usa + eu dog slaves will have the excuse to bomb the SAA because the “credibility of the UN security counsel is at stake…
            HAHAHA ty putin for playing doublecross…said it for weeks and weeks and weeks…..ps….its pathetic how the russian planes “protect” their “allies” at deir e zor since beginning of war…….and nobody give that bs…. hey but SAA is winning….the SAA has won a lot of battles..because .1. their an army(the takfiris aint)2.

    Assad must join Erdogan and fight Russia and USA now. No more BS.

      stop saying stupid suggestions and conclude like a moron or change your avatar name to unthinking.

      • Serious

        Keep making ceasefires and collaborate with USA. XD.

        Don’t trust Russia no more.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          yes because they want the civilians to be able leave the area. Something it can not be done, while a full scale war is going on. Using your brain before you post and stop wishing the death of thousands, from the comfort of your couch playing strategist.

          Now what you trust or not is not relevant to what is happening and the reasoning of them. On the other hand if you feel so strongly about what you post is an easy way to prove it go in the front lines and see how real war taste and feel like.

          • Serious

            Keep doing ceasefire and civilians will absolutely not leave the area. Of course, these terrorists know that if they keep civilians, it’s working.

            The better way is always to not negotiate with terrorists and to kill them wherever they are. Bomb them. Period.

          • PZIVJ

            Exit zones will be set up like the Aleppo battle.
            There is no need to stop the SAA operation.

          • Bru

            They were even already set up, but the terrorists block access to them, the more they feel supported by our Western regimes.

  • Douglas Houck

    A lot of commenters have stated that the Russian have sold out Syria, etc.. Everyone take a deep breath and read the resolution or go to Sputnik and read the article:
    https://sputniknews.com/world/201802241061964273-unsc-resolution-adopts-ceasefire-syria/

    “The ceasefire regime does not cover military operations against Daesh, al-Qaeda, and Jabhat Fatah al Sham (formerly known as al-Nusra Front) terrorist groups.”

    This is the best of both worlds, hopefully a way to move civilians out of the area of conflict and the Syrians can still go after the terrorists.

    • Serious

      So, what is the resolution for since SAA is targeting these terrorist groups ? XD.

      We all know that these terrorists are hiding behind civilians.

      • BMWA1

        Danger I think is that terrorists at last moment change uniform to Syrian unicorn forces etc.

        • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

          lmao unicorn forces so accurate HAHAHA

        • Orcbuu

          Rainbow revolution shirts.
          Then the west will say they kill gay`s in open daylight and demand that the gay army has to step in.
          You can guess 3 times who that would be.

      • Sinbad2

        Well the Americans would claim that Russia is condoning attacks on civilians if Russia had vetoed the resolution.

        Russia has hooked a Great White Shark(USA), on a 10 pound fishing line, it has to be very careful about how it gets the shark to the side of the boat, so it can stick a harpoon in its head.

        • Serious

          No one care about what US says.

          • Sinbad2

            Of course, but the whole world will cheer when it is dead.
            The whole world will be wearing Viva Putin T shirts.

      • Douglas Houck

        The resolution as written is to provide a basis for the Syria/SAA to continue fighting those who openly attack them while trying to get as many civilians as possible out of the line of fire, while stopping the US and others from using the cry of “killing the children” as a basis to create more chaos in Syria.

        • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

          They already had that as this is just so the US can gt a breather as they admitted over a month ago they can’t stop Syria from reclaiming all of Syria. They know their nonsense is all bluff that’s going to cause lot of deaths and they care for no one but themselves. Posted a Photo of the Boys of East Ghouta on Pinterest all of them are poster boys for Al Qaeda.

    • FlorianGeyer

      It will be a re-run of the successful Aleppo campaign I hope but without so many interruptions. :)

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        interesting how that was a roughly year ago and similar campaigns, like weve come full circle or something almost lol :)))

      • Douglas Houck

        Yes, most likely. I doubt the cease fire will last more than 7-10 days but who knows?

        • FlorianGeyer

          It is possible that the conflict in Northern Idlib between the Al Nusra gang and the Moderate gang is all theatre and that Al Nusra thugs will just pick up a Moderate flag and spend 30 days regrouping during the ceasefire.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Only in Idlib as mission is a go, nothing stopping Syria and remember you can’t rebrand stupid.

          • FlorianGeyer

            There is even an advantage to the Turkish aggression in Afrin for the SAA.
            Turkey relies greatly on terrorist gang as infantry and many of these will be needed to hold the front lines on the Afrin borders.

            This will de-facto ,dilute the terrorists opposing the SAA in Idlib.

          • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

            Would hope so as am not sure if the Turks like having their proxies close to them like that.

          • FlorianGeyer

            Flirting with criminals is never a wise move in any part of life. Particularly when they are armed with military grade weapons.

      • Justin

        Correct! Its an opportunity to get their intel assets out and to re-arm and re-group! Cant happen! More civilians die when u create a cease fire! UN should be convincing the rebels to SURRENDER rather than a cease fire!

        • FlorianGeyer

          I expect ever increasing hysteria from the US Coalition of Terror in the coming days and weeks.

    • Attrition47

      Thought so, a sensible tactic to agree to something that is what you wanted all along.

    • the same commenters who constantly push this ‘russia sold out’ crap ever since ukraine crisis.. i cannot remember the list of comments who constantly push the ‘russia abandon eastern ukraine’ narative constantly..

      this is the mark of lies and divisive comment by hasbara operative who posted from Tel Aviv , they are the only one that constantly do this in every issue.. Their motto is to win by shaping the news , even if they lost in battle..

      nothing new about these hasbaras , they just acting like their great father , who is the father of lies, Satan

      • HighLord Gaz

        (hasba)rats are sewer dwelling creatures… loathsome disease carriers… best to kill on sight and burn their bodies.

        • and it is no wonder these israeli hasbara astroturfers love spreading lies , because their father is the father of lies , Satan..

        • TheLulzWarrior

          Hasbarats are also incels.

    • Ma_Laoshi

      Optimistic interpretation. If that is the actual wording, then Jaysh al-Islam, Ahrar al-Sham, and the Rahman Rascals would seem to be covered by the ceasefire. It’s still the same old “Russia had to play along, otherwise it would be blamed” while in fact Russia is getting blamed more and more for literally anything, because the evidence is bullying works. Yes Aleppo was eventually liberated; it’s also true that the West got its beloved “terrorist safe zones” in Idlib and Aleppo countryside, while everything east of the Euprates is now a US colony for as long as the hegemon chooses to stay.

      The renewed pussyfooting in the Security Council seems to show that this is not a bug; a balkanized Syria is Russia’s intended outcome, towards which it is steering developments. How hard would it have been for Russia to say “You get nothing from us in the UNSC until you stop killing our people”?

      • Douglas Houck

        Hmmmm. Not sure where the basis for your positions/comments comes from. We’re not even close to being from the same planet. But here goes.

        “If that is the actual wording, then Jaysh al-Islam, Ahrar al-Sham, and the Rahman Rascals would seem to be covered by the ceasefire.”

        You may want to do some more reading so you have a better understanding of what the resolution means. May I suggest:
        https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/latest-30-day-ceasefire-east-ghouta-mean/

        “According to a military source in Damascus, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham currently has a presence inside the following suburbs: Jobar, ‘Ayn Tarma, Harasta, and Arbeen.

        These aforementioned suburbs have the largest concentration of Faylaq Al-Rahman fighters and were already targeted by the Syrian Army prior to the ceasefire.

        Almost all areas controlled by Faylaq Al-Rahman have a Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham presence, which leaves their territory out of the ceasefire deal.”

        Not sure the meaning/significance of your Aleppo and safe zones. As for that area east of the Euphrates being a US colony, let them have it. The Kurds will tire of not getting any support from the US in making that area economically viable. The longer the US stays the more it is going to cost them, with almost no possible return for their investment, and they know it.

        Russia is the last country that wants a balkanized Syria. I think you have an unrealistic view of how geopolitics between different strength countries works. I would suggest you read the latest draft constitution that Russia produced for the Sochi/Astonia peace process to better understand what Russia is steering developments towards.

        Thanks for the comments.

        • Joe

          As for your comment on US colony , well it will never happen once the terrorist have been taken care of after which diplomatically to get US out. If not , then the next big show begins as you can see , Russia is even deploying their latest su57 plus new batch of Su35 and Su25 that may have been configured to work with the Su57 to make it a F22 killer. Su57 plus S400 can see the F22 , F22 cannot see the Su57…. so who wins?

          That means when the time comes, the Russian will just ensure there is no fly zone in East Euphrates and let the Kurds fight with Assad’s massive allies while US forces being so tiny will not have an effect.

          Let’s watch ….

        • Ma_Laoshi

          You might be ten times right about the precise wording of this resolution, and still it won’t matter. The West will interpret it in any way that suits them, the media will go along with it, and the chorus on SouthFront will sqeak “But… that’s cheating!” It has now been legitimized once again that Syria’s enemies have a say in how the country fights terrorists on its own soil. I hear these assurances that a ceasefire resolution won’t interfere with the E Ghouta operation–i.e., that it is meaningless. Somehow I doubt that that’s why the West pushed so hard to get it.

          With the UNSC resolution on the Libyan no-fly zone, supporters of wise Kremlin policies likewise pointed to the minutiae of the text to explain that it was only about protecting civilians. Then of course the Libyan state got bulldozered over, and the Kremlin itself realized that it’d made a mistake so huge that it disqualified Medvedev from returning to the presidency. Isn’t the present situation very similar?

          Let’s face it, it’s the West that has “taken the gloves off” in this conflict, and where it counts: by expressing a willingness to go after the stolen loot which many of the Russian leadership class have stashed in that same West. Regardless of whether this affects Putin personally or more the people around him, Moscow is now on the defensive and the West knows it.

          • HighLord Gaz

            “stolen loot which many of the Russian leadership class have stashed in that same West”

            GFY idiot… I’m just really over this horse shit… which officials are “corrupt”? BS allegations are easy to back, but evidence? Now that’s where your narrative flat on its fucking face…

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      Aggression disguised as civil wars

      by Thierry Meyssan

      If we accept to take a step back, we notice that the different conflicts which have bloodied the Greater Middle East for the last sixteen years, from Afghanistan to Libya, have not been a succession of civil wars, but the application of regional strategies. Thierry Meyssan reminds us of the objectives and the tactics of these wars since the « Arab Springs » and observes the preparation of those to come.

      VOLTAIRE NETWORK | DAMASCUS (SYRIA) | 27 FEBRUARY 2018

      ESPAÑOL FRANÇAIS ITALIANO ROMÂNĂ РУССКИЙ PORTUGUÊS

      At the end of 2010, a series of wars began, initially presented as popular uprisings. Successively, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen were swept under by the « Arab Spring », a reprise of the « Great Arab Revolt » of 1915, initiated by Lawrence of Arabia – with the difference that this time they would not be relying on the support of the Wahhabites, but the Muslim Brotherhood.

      All these events had been carefully planned by the United Kingdom from 2004, as revealed by the internal documents of the Foreign Office leaked by the British whistle-blower Derek Pasquill [1]. With the exception of the bombing of Tripoli (Libya), in August 2011, they were born not only of the non-violent destabilisation techniques of Gene Sharp [2], but also of William S. Lind’s « 4th Generation War » [3].

      Implemented by the US armies, the British project of the « Arab Spring » overlapped with that of the United States military – the destruction of societies and states at the regional level, as formulated by Admiral Arthur Cebrowski, popularised by Thomas Barnett [4], and illustrated by Ralph Peters [5].

      The events seemed to calm down in the second quarter of 2012, so that on 30 June in Geneva, the United States and Russia agreed to a new distribution of the Middle East.

      However, the United States did not honour their signature. A second war began in July 2012, in Syria, then in Iraq. Small groups and commandos were succeeded by vast land armies composed of jihadists. This was no longer a 4th Generation War, but a classic war of position, adapted from the techniques of Abou Bakr Naji [6].

      This time, in accordance with the work of Robin Wright [7], the intention to prevent the re-opening of the « Silk Road » was superimposed on the two previous objectives when China revealed its ambition.

      The events seemed to calm down during the last quarter of 2017, after the defeat of Daesh, but the investments in the conflicts were such that it seemed impossible for the partisans of war to give up without attaining their goals.

      We then watched a second attempt to relaunch hostilities with the Kurdish question. After a first failure in Iraq, there was a second failure in Syria. In both cases, the violence of the aggression forced Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria to unite against their exterior enemy.

      Finally, the United Kingdom decided to pursue its initial objective of domination via the Muslim Brotherhood, and for that purpose, created the « Little Group », as revealed by Richard Labeviere [8]. This secret structure includes Saudi Arabia, the United States, France and Jordan.

      From their side, the United States, applying Kurt Campbell’s « Pivot to Asia » [9], have just decided to concentrate their forces against China. For that purpose, they are reforming the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue with Australia, India and Japan.

      Meanwhile, Western public opinion believes that the single conflict which has already devastated all of the Greater Middle East, from Afghanistan to Libya, is a succession of civil wars for democracy.

    Meanwhile Putin has, ONCE AGAIN, voted for another Deep State resolution condemning Assad and the legal government of syria at the UNSC. Putin, on his knees, obeys his jewish ‘advisors’ for the umpteenth time.

    If Syria government forces do ANYTHING in East Ghouta in the next 30 days, the USA has a legal excuse to attack the Syrian government anywhere in Syria- thanks to Putin. Your ‘hero’ Putin who cannot stop voting in favour of the West’s anti-human resolutions at the United Nations.

    Of course Putin has stated that he will “never allow” anti-Israeli resolutions at the UN to pass under any circumstances, and that the jews are free to develop and deploy nuclear and plague weapons designed to murder billions of ‘goyim’.

    You are told Putin isn’t racist, May isn’t racist, Merkel isn’t racist, Obama isn’t racist. Yet each of these four states jews are above the law and must never be punished as N Korea and Iran are punished for researching, designing and building nukes (which in Iran’s case isn’t even true). A RACIST by definition looks to the ‘race’ of the criminal before dispensing ‘justice’. Putin personally ensured Russia voted against both Iran and N Korea at the UNSC over actions he has promised never to hold the jews of Israel accountable for. Putin is a proud zionist racist.

  • hvaiallverden

    This, if implemented under the acts regarding civilians, witch I assume this is about, then what Russia say is OK, understandable and wise, what must be then monitored is the traffic, etc, but this corridor that have been given by air to the people witch lives in that place, paths to follow, anyone can go that way, everybody knows that by now.
    And so on.

    Hasbaratnjiks, hehe, yeah, like an itch in the ass, but never the less, become an new normal.
    They are really good at some things, and thats diverting the debate, any track will do, and harass if you dont bother to participate into throwing shit, etc, etc, know this, and when you see it, you know how it works, that is done everywhere, all the time, in all arenas, others they may try to drool some nonsense about history, religion, etc but knows, we know, so they are in/on sites where Facebook rules, you know, the Troika, MSM, Goolag and Facebook, the Ministry of Truths Guardian angels, hehe.
    Interesting indeed, and do notice how our MSM uses, uh…… “infiltrators” or something like that, in their own articles, where the MSM them self fuse in Comments witch basically is backing whatever nonsense the MSM article is about, Vaccine is one really good arena for finding fake Facebook accounts, I my self have non, just click on some of them and see, nothing but name, etc.
    And they whine about “Russians”.
    Jesus how pathetic.

    Because, when the civilian are more or less cleaned out, the rest knows the shit is going to hit everything, incl the fan, must hunker down, blessed by their souls in this time.
    It gives the SAA more free range.
    Watch the Wankees.
    ISISrael got its balls chopped off, so forget them, let the jump and shout, give em something to do to take away the pain of been castrated.

    The UN, well, Instead of writing and mile long list of profanity’s, I just give up, are there anyone that still bothers, when the Imperial Banana Republic uses it as their own public toilet, spewing manure in every direction possible, and threats them whom isnt drooling along.
    Yeah, it should be burned down, the only viable solution is just that, before is destroys our world, burn that shit hole down.

    no wonder the IDF are totally freaked out , because their next target of land grab (syria) have better anti air defense and thus will nullify IDF’s only advantage , which is air power..

    as long as IAF can safely bomb targets from far away without casualties , they will do so arrogantly .. thats until they got shot by ‘mere syrian’ , as the downing of their ultra modern F16I showed.

        american wont last forever. and by the sign of it , already in a rather fast decline economically and cannot sustain its lust for military adventures all over the world.. America with its gigantic military spending , was called the “hammer of the Earth” by the bible , and the fate of this hammer was to be torn asunder by an enemy from the far north.

        sadly american so called christians never even open their bible and read the real fate and incoming judgement to their nation… as if the constant warning delivered via endless natural disaster go unheeded..

    Boris Johnson resumes subsidizing Al Qaeda through the CSSF

    VOLTAIRE NETWORK | 20 FEBRUARY 2018

    FRANÇAIS ESPAÑOL DEUTSCH ITALIANO عربي PORTUGUÊS فارسى NORSK

    Without making a big deal about it, Boris Johnson, British Minister of Foreign Affairs is now resuming subsidizing Adam Smith International (ASI) following a two-month break.

    In December 2017, the BBC programme Panorama had shown that the ASI, supported by Her Majesty’s government to train police in the “liberated areas” (sic) of Syria, was actually funding Al-Qaeda.

    Other investigations have shown that this NGO had also funded lobbying in the UN to convince diplomats that Bahrain is respecting human rights.

    Put under pressure by the Labour Party, the Conservative Government had then cut the funding of the most important “humanitarian” NGO in the country.

    Several scandals – from the sky-high salaries of its several of leaders to stealing confidential state documents, had then arisen, challenging several people holding key positions within the NGO. Several directors of the Adam Smith International had then resigned.

    Her Majesty’s government has created a fund for security and stabilization (Conflict Stability and Security Fund— CSSF) which is funding Al-Qaeda in Syria via three humanitarian NGOs: Adam Smith International, Integrity Global and Tamkeen. The funds have been paid to the so-called “Mayor” of Aleppo (in actual fact a mouth piece for the Saudi jihadists who occupy the East of the city) and to the White Helmets (which claims to be a local organization, led by an MI6 officer which has organized both military operations and propaganda operations). Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon confirmed before the Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons that CSSF had pledged £66 million to Syria in 2015-16, £64 million in 2016-17, and had given £69 million for tax year 2017-18 [1].

    It ain’t rocket science, its imperialism for globalism.

    “”We’re going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran” –General Wesley Clark. Retired 4-star U.S. Army general, Supreme Allied Commander of NATO

    “That is the phenomenon of the US. Since 1945 they’ve destroyed 73 countries and were directly involved in the deaths of 26 million people. It is a horror show. It just must stop!”
    John Shipton, journalist and executive officer of Wiki Leaks.

    And for more credit based slavery?

    “Some even believe we [Rockefeller family] are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – One World, if you will.If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it ”
    | David Rockefeller |

    And then I ask you, what does a globalist do when those they want to be part of this grand idea, refuse to join it? When they challenge the petro dollar, refuse the usury, refuse the politics and refuse the consumerism based culture that creates a slave based society.

    oh wait, it has already been spoken to by the point on experts above. Those who speak to the facts.
