On April 25, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies established a full control of Eastern Qalamoun following a withdrawal of the last batch of militants from the area. However, the Syrian Defense Ministry still has confirm the control of the region in an official statement.

It is important to note that a large number of militants remained in the area in the framework of a reconciliation deal reached between Damascus and them. These militants have chosen to settle their legal status in the area. Some of them will joint the pro-government National Defense Forces.

In southern Damascus, government troops continued pressuring ISIS in the Yarmouk area. The main clashes have taken place in the Madaniyah area. ISIS claims 3 SAA battle tanks have been recently damaged by its members.

The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) announced that its members had killed 12 Turkish Army soldiers and Free Syrian Army members in hit and run attacks during the last week.

According to pro-Kurdish sources, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), that mostly consist of YPG members, will soon resume anti-ISIS operations in eastern Syria. However, according to some Syrian experts, this will not be a major effort because Washington is interested in remaining weak ISIS cells in the border area because they justify the US military presence in the country.

On April 25, the Russian Defense Ministry held a press briefing revealing additional details about the April 14 cruise missile strike carried out by the US, the UK and France on Syria.

The defense ministry revealed wreckage of the allegedly intercepted missiles and said that two unexploded missiles (a Tomahawk and a high-accuracy air-launched missile) had been delivered to Russia from Syria.

According to the April 25 press briefing by the Russian military:

  • only 22 US, French, British missiles hit their targets;
  • 46 missiles were intercepted by Syrian air defense systems covering the capital of Syria and Duvali, Dumayr, Blai, and Mazzeh nearby airfields;
  • 20 missiles were intercepted in three areas of the responsibility zone of air defense of Homs;
  • a part of the missiles failed to reach their targets by different, apparently technical, reasons.

According to the Pentagon’s version of the events, the UK, the US and France launched 105 missiles and all they hit their targets. Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon described the April 25 briefing by the Russian military as “another example of the Russian disinformation campaign”.

Why are you repeating what we have just read?

rudy

Village retards must often be explained !

rudy

A lot soldiers and corporal troll’s online ?

rudy

One has to know that every US cruise missile contains 87,5 kg. of Depleted Uranium (DU) that will stay in Syria for a 1.000 years before degraded and will provoke quantity of malformations in childbirth and Cancer and others ! 87;5 X 105 = 9.187,5 kg. That’s the disaster Trump, May and Macron is RESPONSABLE FOR, a WARCRIME !

Nuremberg was a “show trial” that has now been exposed as a total farce and nothing more than a lynching of the German people… It was run by Jews who only wanted blood..

rudy

That whas my point !

ilme

Please provide evidence for this. There is no reason to use DU in a cruise missile and if there had been Russia and Syria for sure had published it.

You are also wrong with the time, DU would stay there for tens of thousands of years.

A10 Canon ammunition and anti tank rounds contain DU, but you know that perfectly well and just want to troll here.

Sorry, but that page cannot be found.

The text you copied isn’t logical, depleted uranium had zero use in these weapons it only is needed for kinetic tank piercing rounds it doesn’t add any value to breaching bunkers or other structures. TOW missiles have HEAT warheads, DU would only decrease their effectiveness.

these links deny your theory

rudy

learn first reading

rudy

Go back to school !

ilme

Well, mind explaining how you think that DU works and what it is used for? Nice collection of links they either say exactly what I said or make claims that they have no prove for. So explain the physics behind the usage of DU please. Russia btw is having DU rounds as well but they would only be used in case Russia gets attacked by NATO.

rudy

It gives the piercing force to breach the target !

ilme

And how does that work? What effect is making it more suitable for this task than tungsten? You know in what kind of ammunition tungsten is used? If yes why do you claim DU is used in cruise missiles? Go on you don’t even need to google this it is all written on wikipedia but you of course can google if you don’t trust wikipedia which in this case is right for once.

rudy

Loock often at science for stupid and perhaps you will learn, but i doubt ! Hasta luego !

ilme

You’re welcome. Was a pleasure making you realise you got it wrong. Don’t worry too much about not being able to admit it, it’s one of the hardest things in life and only few people are strong enough to do so.

rudy

Play with your own ball’s !

Approved

please do not feed the troll called “rudy” which is another account by the same hasbara called “velociraptor”

his task is to distract the topic discussion by posting nonsensical and insults , he never want to learn the truth and any attempt by you or anyone to correct his mistakes will be for naught.

it is classic hasbara 101 MO , they distract discussion by dropping a totally stupid post and then people trying to correct them get embroiled in endless pointless discussion.

remember he is paid per post by his boss in tel aviv , not by the quality of his post.

ilme

thanks, I have both of these usernames blocked already. The Reason why I replied to this specific post was that I know many people who fall for such troll conspiracy which in this case was well opened up for a troll. Now everybody who is not that experienced with trolling has all the info and can judge for himself.

Alberto Campos

Rudy, you lost this one.

rudy

You imagine yourself a judge ?

go back to your mud hut.

I’ve seeing you often in front asking for old bread !

en je neukt jezelf

northerntruthseeker .

You sir are an idiot.. .The US itself declared decades ago that DU was the largest part of the explosives used in their arsenal, and they have refused since that time to remove it…

DU was put into massive use by the Americans for their future “fight” against the now non-existent Soviet Union….

We see the result of that folly in Iraq where the US used a massive amount of DU warheads and explosives and that radioactive material will be there for hundreds of thousands of years poisoning the Iraqi people.

ilme

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium#Ammunition

As I said: DU is used only in kinetic rounds it only ignites because of the massive energy transformation at impact, it cannot be used as an explosive.

Yes it should be banned and seen as a war crime but you two guys imply that it is harmless because no Syrian people of that attack will be affected from it. So when you convince people it was used everybody will think it has no effect on the people at all.
Things that can’t be said of Iraq or the Kosovo and Serbia where it was used making even their own soldiers sick, not because of the radiation but because it is highly poisoning. On the plus side once the dust is washed away people are not effected that strong anymore but it’s still there in the soil dangerous and harmful.

MasterBlaster7

It is useless to argue with a mud dweller…you cant fix stupid. DU is heavier than lead and that is why it is used in high velocity rounds for penetration. There is NO reason to us it in cruise missiles. And this guy is bitching about contamination…where VX and Sarin were blown up…hahahahaha….depleted uranium should be the last of your worries…depleted uranium is less dangerous than my smoke detector about 10 ft from my head.

rudy

You urgently need a shrink or just walking on your hands and loosing screws !

velociraptor

bullshit

rudy

GO with MB7, the shrink could made a better price, in 2 heads is more than in one( a saying from US mounted police, 1 head for the cowboy the other from the horse )

Just report Velociraptor every post as Spam and if more ppl reported him ,disqus will filter him out

MasterBlaster7

Sounds like an improvement to Syria.

rudy

See a shrink !

Yeah Russia, “Keep the disinformation coming” please!!!

Rob

If every country in the world has their own nuclear weapons and ICBM then the I’d*ots Trump, May and Macron will think twice before starting proxy war and attacking a peaceful country.

Oscar Silva Martinez

That’s precisely what the U.S., England, France and Israel want to prevent, letting other countries to have enough power to defend themselves. Look at North Korea!!!

Rob

How to end all wars in the world, because its spreading very fast to other countries in the world?

Approved

lawl , losing many humans ? as long as they are not american or european or caucasian white , no one in the west cares

Hide Behind

While the Teresa May, Macron and Trump three some glory in orgasmic pleasure of F’n over Syria once more, their people’s care not if 22, 52, or 102 missles did or did not stain the earth with their leavings, care not of illegal or legal, moral or immoral, life in their la la lands goes on undisturbed.
The armchair warriors pay attention, it’s a numbers game and a digital war game, the peace movements within their lands means peace and quiet for their pursuits, free condoms and the free education on how to use them is most important, as they grow old and are supplanted by foreign borns.
Propaganda that may disturb their placid existence goes unheard, as if they cared to listen, so truth which can only come from outside remains outside.
All’s well for them, and to he’ll with what goes on outside their immediate lives.

Approved

The only way people will care is if their skin in the game as in they got drafted and fight for the saudi princes and the israelis..

but the current generation is gucci generation who expect air power to flatten everything and then drive around acting like victors..

see how Houti fighter walk and live among the harsh desert and rocky environment of yemen ? these are the core of tough fighters , not the effeminate and petulant western youths.

cortisol

So “all missiles hit their target”. I doubt it that not one slow Tomahawk would have been shot down or confused with EW, when all Syrian SAM defenses were put to extremely active use countering this strike. The truth is probably somewhere in between the middle of all 105 hitting and only 22 hitting, tilting towards the lower end.

Approved

The russian info is more accurate , tomahawk never achieve 100 percent in any theatre of war. Especiallu in syria where the AD/A2 central complex and the numerous air defense network still up and running.

the way to make cruise missile attack successfull is to degrade the air defense facilities first , and since FUKUS do not have the courage to attack syrian / russian AD sites , the subsonic slow tomahawks are easy targets

Approved

That the pentagon said every missile hit target is an indicator itself of the propaganda effort to prop up the failed missile attack. Tomahawk assault are never 100% even wihtout good air defence. many malfunctioned or plain shot down by ordinary AAA past wars , and back then pentagon admitted theres no 100% result.

the russian information is more accurate , and the western actions are predictable as they do not care about ground truth anymore except trying to win on the narrative / media front. It is classic Israeli invented “shaping the media narrative” tactics that worked so well for them
