The Syrian Air Force and the Russian Aerospace Forces have continued intense airstrikes on militant targets in the provinces of Idlib and Latakia. According to local sources, a major part of the SAF strikes were delivered on militant positions near Khan Shaykhun, Kafr Zita, al-Latamih and the nearby areas. Syrian Army artillery guns and rocket launchers have also engaged militant targets along the contact line.

The situation remains tense. However, government forces have kicked off no ground offensive yet despite claims by some pro-government media outlets that it’s already ongoing.

The US-led coalition used phosphorous bombs to deliver a strike on the settlement of the ISIS-held village of Hajin in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor on September 8, chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Opposing Parties Vladimir Savchenko said on September 10. According to the statement, the strike were delivered by two F-15 warplanes of the US Air Force.

In a separate statement, Pentagon spokesman Sean Robertson denied this adding that “none of the military units in the area are even equipped with white phosphorous munitions of any kind”.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported citing unnamed US officials that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had approved the use of chlorine gas in an offensive against the militant-held part of Idlib province and the nearby areas.

The newspaper also claimed once again citing anonymous sources that US President Donald Trump had threatened to order a massive attack on facilities of the Damascus government if Syrian forces carry out “massacre in Idlib”.

It further added that the US military is now considering military options in Syria, but President Trump has made no final decision so far.
This report as well as multiple previous allegations by the mainstream media and Western diplomats are a part of the ongoing propaganda campaign designed to justify attempts of the US-led bloc to defend the last major terrorist stronghold in Syria. It’s interesting but most of commentators and media accidentally forget to point out that the main opposition force in Idlib is Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, an internationally recognized terrorist group and the former official branch of al-Qaeda in Syria.

At the same time, YouTube banned a number of Syrian state-run and pro-government channels, including ones belonging to the Syrian Presidency, the Syrian Defense Ministry and the state-run news agency SANA. The reason provided was that these accounts allegedly violate YouTube’s Terms of Service.

This move can be considered as another attempt to suppress non-mainstream reporting on the ongoing conflict. Some Syrian experts even claimed that these were another sign of preparations for a staged chemical attack in Idlib and then a US-led military strike on Syrian government forces.

    Another portion of MSM lies.Also today is the 53th birthday of President Assad.

    • Rüdiger Preiss

      Happy Birthday to the President Bashar Al Assad!

    • Rob

      UK and US have kept white Helmits and SHRW illegally in Syria to do fake chemical attacks and make Hollywood fake videos in war torn country. If Russia have done this then UK and US would order them to leave the areas for up coming operation. Your stay here is now illegal due to operation starwars. We cannot guaranty your safety.

    • First Lastname

      Is 9/11 his birthday or 9/10?

    • northerntruthseeker .

      Happy birthday to the bravest leader on the planet who actually wants what is best for his people!

  • Rüdiger Preiss

    Is it only on my computer or is the sound really faint on this video?

      Mines good.

    I have been watching the ramp up of mainline and quite a few dubious nationalist christian zionist and rightwing internet sites in US all parroting exactly the same anti Syrian talking points.
    Google, an Intelligence financed originally an startup and is now a fully integrated mass media outlet of US Intelligence Services(At latest) on cell phone news is saying Assad has ordered the use of gas.
    This message is being subliminally entering into all foreign news wire services and all of the financial mediums and strongly by Bloomburg Financials worldwide TV broadcast.
    Little to no mention on local outlets is made of US bases in Syria, while we are told US is fighting terror and aiding down trodden Syrians, and most Americans think Kurds are but some pastoral sheep raisers and farmers who are living in pro Islamic apartheied states just trying to stay alive.
    Congress launched its military cyber networks for propaganda a few years ago by granting each military Branch, 4, 100 millions a year funding.
    They and Israel troll the internet trying to disrupt any and all anti war or truth sites of real Syrian and US aggressions abroad.
    Add in the fully brainwashed ex and retired military over 100 million strong who wave flags and just follow as gospel what their superiors say, should help to explain why majority of Americans aid all war making.
    Propaganda today is a very hi-tech and intensive indoctrination process that in truth acts as a much improved “religious” cult immersion, and yes subtle forms of physical cohersion, that hold religious orgs together, “Take Everything on Faith” Do not question your Rabbi, Priest, Bishops and Imams utterances.
    Our National holidays celebrations, museums, educational history universities, Flags everywhere, with thousand given away free yearly, church sevices praying for our military angels, and even the Nut that is President of US.
    Take US and Europe’s propaganda machine very very seriously, it is world wide, and subtle, but effective. In a dumb and dumber US where understanding their language is low on totem poles most do not note the Nuances of words and phrases, and while seemingly educated, they are no more than trained and untrained by their systems owners.
    PS rumors of a few thousand military to Germany and a few hundreds to Israel Jordan and Iraq , Italy,Greece and Africa, ,all those movers are but setting up the infrastructure, an infrastructure that has capabilities to move at an instant against Syria.
    Germany, Don’t believe MSM bull about thinking, has already agreed to use their Air forces in Syria when US says to.
    One way Germany is trying to avoid the US tariff and trade war Trump has launched.

    ” US President Donald Trump had threatened to order a massive attack on facilities of the Damascus government if Syrian forces carry out “massacre in Idlib”…TRANSLATION…US DEEP STATE IS ORDERING PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP TO PROTECT THEIR INTERNATIONAL MERCENARY TERRORIST IN IDLIB.

    • LOUCAS PARTASSIDES

      TRUMP to POUTIN ,,,do it …I don’t care ….as long as you don’t use ‘chemicals’

  • leon mc pilibin

    By hook or by crook,the Zionists want war,its as simple as that,,they just can’t accept that their Isis terrorists Failed miserably.

    • Allan Greedspoon

      They are not as secure as they would like to think. With Hezbollah’s arsenal of 100,000 plus GTG missiles, Israel’s sense of normalcy could come crashing to the ground very quickly . .

    • gustavo

      Non exactly, one can say that ISrael-USA-NATO plan of putting terrorists in Syria and to create the Islamic State was 35% of success because they were be able to almost destroy Syria. Of course, the plan was to continue with Iran and Russia. They still have a couple of tricks that they can make (Turkey and Kurds). Clearly, Russia made the whole difference, and with Syria-Hezbolah-Iran armies are destroying their terrorists there. For the benefit of humanity, it is very good to know that the Bear finally has waken up.

  • MADE MAKER

    ..IS WHITE PHOSPHOROUS NOT A CHEMICAL WEAPON THAT THE US USED TO BOMB SYRIA ?

  • JustPassingThrough

    In a separate statement, Pentagon Liar Sean Robertson denied….

    fixed it for you.

  • Luis Sidorenko

    Virginia state senator Richard Black said Britain’s MI6 intelligence service was planning a chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people, which it would then blame on Mr Assad.

    • FlorianGeyer

      State senator Richard Black must now expect an IRS tax investigation very soon and the Truth is NO defence :)

      • zman

        Florian, you must keep up. Today the IRS is old hat…now they find kiddie porn and solicitous emails to minors…or your plane just falls out of the air.

        • FlorianGeyer

          I stand corrected Zman. Thank you :)

          I also had a vision of Nancy Pelosi sending “solicitous emails” to miners.
          That was a disturbing thought :)

  • Chuma Anierobi

    KARMA will take action on all these evil people.

  • Drogba

    There is no word in the dictionary to properly describe the depravity of the lies churned out by the zionist fake news media.In a normal world these warmongers would be put on trial and given a sentence that fits their crimes.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Religions around the globe have been peddling lies ever since man evolved to live in groups.
      The Zionist Cult has just taken this to another more deadly level in the age of nuclear weapons.

    Jootube is doing it’s part in the campaign .Osem.

  • Maurizio Pucci

    I share a couple of articles about US and GB troops in Idlib an I got a month long block in facebook. The casus belli was a pic against ISIS – lol :-D

    • Maurizio Pucci

      I let know facebook staff that the post was satiric and against isis. I also asked them if the true reason of the block maybe the sharing an article about us & gb troops trapped in idlib …
      The block was canceled quickly

      • FlorianGeyer

        Satire is not understood by the ‘dumb’ and by extension, most poorly educated Americans.

  • The MSM lives under the impression it’s employed by Hollywood.
