On September 4, Israel carried out a strike on targets in the provinces of Tartus and Hama, according to the Syrian state media. The Syrian Air Defense Forces intercepted at least five missiles. However, the rest of them hit a target in the area of Masyaf in the Hama countryside.

Pro-Israeli sources described the target as an Iranian weapons depot. However, no visual confirmation to confirm this claim was provided. According to the news agency SANA, at least one person was killed and 12 others were injured as a result of the attack. No further details were revealed.

Meanwhile, the Israeli military announced that it has carried out over 200 strikes on Iranian targets in Syria over the past year.

The September 4 Israeli strike came on the same day when the Syrian Air Fore increased number of airstrikes on terrorist targets – mostly Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra) and the Turkistan Islamic Party – in southern and southwestern Idlib. According to different sources, about 30-60 strikes were carried out. Pro-militant sources also claimed that the Russian Aerospace Forces were involved.

Earlier, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem said that US threats to strike the war-torn country will not halt the liberation of Idlib.

“The intended aggression won’t affect our people’s morale nor will it sway our military plans to liberate Idlib,” Muallem told the Russian state media. “This is not the first time that the United States, Great Britain and France have cooked up a scheme for a chemical weapons incident,” he added.

Separately, the Syrian Foreign Ministry accused the US and its allies of supplying terrorists with weapons through Eastern European countries and the Balkan countries.

“It is obvious that the United States and its allies are supplying a huge amount of ammunition and weapons, using third countries such as the Eastern European countries, Ukraine, and the Balkan states, to fuel the Nusra Front [also known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham] and Daesh [ISIS],” Alaa Saeed Din Hamdan, the first secretary of the Syrian Foreign Ministry’s international relations department, said.

On September 7, Iranian, Turkey and Russian presidents will meet for new high level talks in Teheran. According to the Kremlin, the situation in Idlib will be among the key topics of the Syrian agenda.

The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) released a statement claiming that it had captured a key ISIS member responsible for the terrorist group’s intelligence activities in Raqqa, Aleppo, Hama and other areas.

Abu Kerem (real name Adil Musa Abdouljezar) was allegedly captured by the YPG’s Anti-Terror Units on August 11. The YPG also claimed that the captured terrorist had “provided a lot of important information about ISIS and how it has been strengthened and bolstered by the Turkish state.”

The YPG and its political wing, the Democratic Union Party (PYD), often accuse Turkey of war crimes and supporting terrorists. In turn, Ankara describes the YPG and the PYD as terrorist organizations, local affiliates of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

      President Putin is always measured so as to leave the ability to escalate in the future.
      I feel that if there is a large intervention by FUKUS and partners that the Syrians will get S300’s or even 400’s. It would be logical that Syrian missile troops are already being trained in Russia for such an eventuality Tommy.

      • Val Shadowhawk

        Oh and how!!

    • hope springs eternal.

      Have been hearing/reading of Chinese troops coming to Syria for long. Not an iota of proof so far! Do you have any?

    • You can call me Al

      Thank God I found you. I am so sorry Merijn, but I will not be able to meet tomorrow. At the moment I some sort of infection caused by an insect bite / sting and need to stay in the little room, for bad reasons. I know that it is my second strike, but crap like this, happens lot to me. 1 more chance please. Me true apology, as I also was looking forward to it.

      • Merijn

        Sure no problem just let me know….:)

        • You can call me Al

          Infections in my ears + a virus in my stomach and chest -> all since Sunday that seems a little odd, oh yes insect bite + swollen hand.

          Give it a week or so, I’ll be running on all 4 cylinders again.

          • mullengirls4

            Better get to a doctor ASAP to determine if you got bitten by a tick. The infection spreads fast within the first 2 weeks after being bitten and a strong round of antibiotics is the only way to prevent the little bugs from spreading throughout your entire system. It’s commonly referred to as LYME disease. If the area of the bite looks like a bulls-eye then you know it is from a tick bite. If you decide not to go to a doctor this parasite will invade virtually every part of your body and the symptoms will get progressively worse. Good luck and sure hope it isn’t LYME disease.

          • You can call me Al

            Thanks for the information (I think !!!) -? you’ve scared the hell out of me now. I have antibiotic ear drops, the doctor states the rest will clear itself – it certainly doesnt feel like it at the moment.

    Israeli air attacks against Iranian installations and weapon depots is a faint attempt to try to dislodge Iran from Syria, at present Iran does not have enough point defenses to defend all its positions in Syria, however, the situation will improve as time goes on.

    Iran’s presence in Syria cannot be negotiated away, or defeated on the battlefield, this is a mistake the zionists have to live with, as a result of their bonehead decisions and hubris. Iran’s presence in Syria is like a dagger pointed for the jugular.

    • 1691

      Somehow I am convinced that if Iran was out of Syria the israhellies would find another “justification” for bombing Syria.

      • Jesus

        You are right, nothing is enough for idiot psychopaths.

      • FlorianGeyer

        That is very very cynical 1691 but after a seconds deliberation I wholeheartedly agree with you :)

        • You can call me Al

          Blimey Florian, you are slow today – a whole second !!!.

          • FlorianGeyer

            I am 68 on saturday Al . Have a bit of sympathy :)

          • Val Shadowhawk

            Ahh, well Happy Birthday to when it comes!

          • You can call me Al

            Have a great Birthday.

    • frankly

      Yeah like the big quiet guy coming in to rescue a little fella in a school yard full of yappy bullies. My son did that for a pair of twins, they were so little, God they love him. He’s not really a fighter just strong as an ox and very tall. Would he turn tale and abandon them, not on your life. There is something about fighting together against a common enemy that forms indissoluble bounds, you forced them together, now demand they separate. Good luck with that.

  • frankly

    When the carnage in Syria first started we heard repeatedly, civil war, civil war. The people are rising up against their government. Now here is Israel bragging about 200 strikes on Syria in the last year. Were any of those strikes against the ISIS safely snuggled right up next to Jordan and Israel?

    So here is Syria fighting ISIS, al Qaeda and Israel and winning. Amazing, no wonder F.uk.us and fiends are panicking, their grip is slipping, no matter how much money they throw at ISIS and al Qaeda.

      Law of brute force, only that.
