U.S. Hopes That Russia Will Allow Israel To Strike Further Iranian Forces In Syria

On November 7, U.S. envoy to Syria James Jeffrey said that Washington hopes that Russia will continue to allow Israel to strike Iranian forces in Syria, despite the recent tension over the downing of the Il-20 plane.

“Russia has been permissive, in consultation with the Israelis, about Israeli strikes against Iranian targets inside Syria. We certainly hope that that permissive approach will continue,” Jeffrey said in a conference call with reporters, according to the Reuters news agency.

Jeffery went on to stress that the U.S. understands and respects Israel’s efforts to prevent Iran from deploying advanced weapons in Syria or supplying them to Hezbollah through the war torn country.

“Israel has an existential interest in blocking Iran from deploying long-range power projection systems … inside Syria to be used against Israel. We understand the existential interest and we support Israel,” said Jeffery.

Earlier, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov revealed that Israeli actions have put lives of Russian troops in Syria in a danger “in a number of cases.” The minister also said that the use of force wouldn’t resolve Israeli security concerns and could only foment regional tensions.

Following the downing of the Russian plane, on September 17, Russia supplied Syria with the advanced S-300 air defense system. Since then, Israel has ceased its operations in the war-torn country.

    ““Russia has been permissive, in consultation with the Israelis, about Israeli strikes against Iranian targets inside Syria.”
    Unless this policy is immediately changed MORE brave Russians will die in Syria at the hands of the Israelis. Is RF ready for this? Will the RF military put up with this nonsense???

    • John Brown

      It has been changed. No strikes since the S-300 given to Syria.

      • Jens Holm

        Thats right. But it dont say Israel has stopped forever. If Israel has counterstrike, they hardly would show them as well. Would they ?

        • John Brown

          Syria’s sir defences will only get stronger as the racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship rapidly weakens in all areas, technological, economic, military, societal collapse as racist supremacist Nazi Jews always destroy every host nation they conquer which inevitably leads to their own destruction. China was supposed to be the next host but it appears that plan has failed. There will be no EU in 5 years or less and probably no USSA slave nation of racist supremacist Nazi Jews either.

  • RichardD

    Russia made a decision to stop Israel from attacking anyone in Syria. That’s unlikely to change. Russia is more interested in winning the war than helping the Jews who have a long history of causing the Russians huge problems.

    Such as these vampire Jews engaged in vulture capitalism, that in conjunction with Jews in the west impoverished a generation of Russians, and would do the same or worse again as their activity in the US clearly illustrate.

    “of the seven oligarchs who controlled 50% of Russia’s economy during the 1990s, six were Jewish: Berezovsky, Vladimir Guzinsky, Alexander Smolensky, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Mikhail Friedman and Valery Malkin. That fact is incontestable”

    The envoy might as well said submissive to Israel demands and isn’t Iran in Syria to fend off militias supported by the same governments to toppled the Asad regime and cause the destruction of the country and slaughter of millions of people.

    What a wet dreams,the sky is lock and ready to shut down.

    I thought crack pipe smoking was illegal in the US. I guess not for James. American Exceptionalism for war criminals.

    • Jens Holm

      It is allowed to ask. After all, they have free speech.

      • Luke Hemmming

        I recognise the sarcasm in your comment because a person of your intellect would not believe for one moment that free speech exists in the USA…am I right?

  • H Eccles

    “On November 7, U.S. envoy to Syria James Jeffrey said that Washington hopes that Russia will continue to allow Israel to strike Iranian forces in Syria…”

    WTF!!… is this James Jeffrey’s idea of diplomacy skills..?? Does the clown even realise he’s asking the Russians to let that little shithole of the universe bomb their ally the Iranians who btw have been invited to be there by the Syrians.

    • Jens Holm

      Be a clown Yourself no realisme.

      In Iraq both Iran and USA by the coalition help Bagdad againsr ISIS.

      No reason to Fuc. people showing only, You hardly know nothing.

      • J Ramirez

        USA is ISIS, check your facts.

  • Bigaess Wangmane

    What a sick fucking psychopath, no wonder the Iranians keep chanting death to Israhell and the Yankee Doodles.

    • Jens Holm

      So how much do You pay ?

  • Jim Prendergast

    Live from Comedy Central, it’s: James Jeffrey!!!

    • Jens Holm

      He probatly has more influence then You.

      • Luke Hemmming

        And you too for that fact. No need to make such a comment was there?

        • Jens Holm

          Its no comedy people like him telling that, and some no one after that tell things totally out of context.

          Making cars like that is a wheel = car.

          • Luke Hemmming

            I actually get what he meant. It is a comedy act the way these politicians talk. That goes for most politicians. In my country for example they broadcast every day for one hour question time of our parliament. For most Australians who watch it we sit and eat our lunch and laugh at the stupid comments these people that are in charge of running our country make to each other. We make observations about how childish they are. It really is a comedy act I kid you not.

          • Jim Prendergast

            Is Jens trying to speak English?

          • H Eccles

            No… it’s just a groan.. he does it every time Isreal gets criticised.

      • Jim Prendergast

        I assume you meant ” more influence than”. What do you mean by “Fx It”? Is that some kind of slang expression?

  • alejandro casalegno

    Israel is the same, Iran is the same……………….Russia and Syria are not the same.

  • Shylo Duffy

    Ok now I’ve heard it all..

  • Jens Holm

    Russians still dont like Iranians and Hesbollah.

  • jade villaceran

    So this statement made s300 is really feared by yankees and jew, no wonder why they stop flying the f35

    • jorge

      Good remark.

  • Fred Dozer

    Not going to happen, if Syria has true control over S-300 systems and are trained. That should be Russia answer to Israel. Syrian military needs to answer that question. Period.
    Yet the US has no problem, giving there military equipment to terrorist and starting wars around the globe.More war criminals in the US than any other country. Any they do-not acknowledge any world court. CIA & FBI have mass murders working for them within US borders and they are good assets. US has highest percentage of there population behind bars. Yes, for just about any crime.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    On November 7, U.S. envoy to Syria James Jeffrey said that Washington hopes the masses will continue to believe the false narrative “the Israelis are really scared if those nasty S-300’s” and not that they’re really scared of the Iranian SRBMs, and even worse, pooing their panties over the possibly already built MRBMs the Iranians possibly have pointed at them right now, with or without nuclear weapons on board.
    The Israelis have been threatening to strike at Iranian assets in Iraq for a few months now, can anybody guess what those targets might be, I can, it would have to be something pretty serious for the Israelis to actually make threats against the Iraqis. The Iranians only have to move those SRBM’s 500 km into Iraqi territory and they can hit any target they like in Israel with impunity, but if they really do have the MRBMs, they don’t even have to move them.
    Japan made a big song and dance about the North Korean nuclear capable MRBN that could potentially hit them, but so far the Israelis have only complained about the Russian S-300 system. The system that stops their jets from hitting the Iranian targets that could possibly launch those SRB/MRB missiles from Syria, just by coincidence.
    At the present time the Iranians aren’t supposed to have nuclear weapons to attach to them, but that may not be accurate for all we know, there’s lots of stories and articles about North Korean nukes being made available to the Iranians, and for all we know, it could be the truth. A few years ago they were both totally isolated in the world political arena, and both desperate for an ally, would it surprise anyone if they actually did make a mutual defence pact back then, that did involve the swap of nuclear weapons, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they actually did.
    Those Iranian SRBM’s are nuke capable, have Multi Re-entry Vehicles, stealthy in flight, have precision targeting, and been battle proven not just once, but twice now. And for the last 15 years, I’ve been told the Israelis have nightmares about exactly this type of weapon, they were telling us themselves they were going to sleep every night worrying about it. And now the Iranians [possibly] have exactly the thing the Israeli nightmares were made of, the Israelis suddenly stop having nightmares about Iranian missiles, and instead now only have nightmares about Russian S-300 systems, even though the Russians already have S-400 systems there already. God help me. Doesn’t anybody wonder why the Israelis are so desperate to stop the Iranians lately, it only takes 3 or 4 functioning brain cells to work it out, I think I must have 5.

It is worth noting that Dinel was caught spying in Russia during the 90s and was subsequently declared persona non grata. So tarnished was Dinel’s reputation that Turkmenistan refused to grant diplomatic status to this enemy of Russia.

    It is well established Israel is a firm ally of the U.S.. Similarly, the actions of Israel (having an adversarial/hostile intent) are incompatible with (disingenuous) conciliatory rhetoric by various officials (conforming to deception). The move by Russia to compromise Israeli strikes against targets in Syria is arguably necessary to prevent a serious escalation while sending a clear message that the death of Russian servicemen due to offensive Israeli military operations will see appropriate responses. Any potential easing of restriction of Israeli aggression would be incompatible with these factors.

    “…Washington hopes that Russia will continue to allow Israel to strike Iranian forces in Syria,”
    “Continue” I did not know that Russia had approved Israeli airstrikes on Iranian hardware in Syria to begin with.

    “Jeffery went on to stress that the U.S. understands and respects Israel’s efforts to prevent Iran from deploying advanced weapons in Syria or supplying them to Hezbollah through the war torn country.”

    Keep hoping

  • gustavo

    Before Il-20 Russia was allowing Israel to do (to bomb) Syria as she wanted wherever she wanted and whenever she wanted (she because Israel is a women),, but now, that Russia has realized that Israel planned carefully this plot against its army, I do not know. That depends on how strong is the jews influence with Putin.

    • RichardD

      You don’t build an integrated air defense system overnight. Syria’s air defense is the first thing that the terrorists took down. Now it’s been rebuilt and upgraded. Making it much more difficult for the baby rapers to violate Syrian airspace. Russia’s mission was to roll back the terrorist advances, not keep the Jews at bay. It didn’t and still doesn’t have the equipment in theater to police all of Syria’s airspace all of the time and run combat operations against the terrorists. Russia can and is enforcing a partial no fly zone over part of Syria and has been for a few years. That doesn’t include east of the river, Lebanon, Israel, or the sea.

      Syria has over 1,000 air defense systems that are now being integrated together and with the Russian satcom network. There’s no need for Russia to secure Syria’s skys when the Syrian’s can do it themselves with their own equipment.

  • Kelli Hernandez

    Did Russia tell them to take their troops and Wahhabi extremist mercenaries, OUT of Syria and OFF Syrian oil fields, STEALING Syrian WEALTH so they cant rebuild their country?
    Did the Russians tell the kazharian squatters to get OFF the stolen Golan?

    I hope the S-300 brings down every Israhelli jet that DARES to try to bomb Syria again
