US-led Coalition Destroys Hajin’s Hospital Amid SDF Advance

At the late hours of December 7, US-led coalition warplanes carried out intense airstrikes on the main hospital in the ISIS-held town of Hajin in the middle Euphrates River Valley, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA). The number of casualties is yet to be known.

“US-led coalition warplanes targeted the hospital of Hajin in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, which resulted in the complete destruction of the hospital,” local sources to the SANA.

Earlier, the ISIS-linked news agency, Amaq, reported that US-led coalition warplanes conducted more than 100 airstrikes on residential areas within Hajin. According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), eleven civilians were killed in the airstrikes.

These intense airstrikes came amid a major advance of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) inside Hajin. More than 70% of the strategic town is reportedly under the control of the US-backed group, as for now.

According to several sources, the SDF is working to evacuate the civilians from Hajin. However, it appears that the US-led coalition is looking to clear the town from ISIS as fast as possible without taking the civilian population into account.

    Bombing hospitals, schools, power stations sewerage plants etc seems to be the primary targets of the USAF. They would rather commit war crimes and kill civilians than actually target the enemy.
    It’s hard to understand that kind of evil.

      ‘According to US grand strategy, as defined by Admiral Cebrowski in 2001, and published in 2004 by his assistant Thomas Barnett, all of the Greater Middle East must be destroyed except for Israël, Jordan and Lebanon.’

      ‘As from 9/11, Admiral Cebrowski’s assistant, Thomas P. M. Barnett, has given numerous conferences at the Pentagon and in military academies in order to announce the shape of the new map of the world according to the Pentagon [5]. This project was made possible by the structural reforms of US armies –these reforms are the source of this new vision of the world. At first, it seemed so crazy that foreign observers too quickly considered it as one more piece of rhetoric aimed at striking fear into the people they wanted to dominate.
      Barnett declared that in order to maintain their hegemony over the world, the United States would have to « settle for less », in other words, to divide the world in two. On one side, the stable states (the members of the G8 and their allies), on the other, the rest of the world, considered only as a simple reservoir of natural resources. Contrary to his predecessors, Barnett no longer considered access to these resources as vital for Washington, but claimed that they would only be accessible to the stable states by transit via the services of the US army. From now on, it was necessary to systematically destroy all state structures in the reservoir of resources, so that one day, no-one would be able to oppose the will of Washington, nor deal directly with the stable states.’

      For me it’s hard to understand what kind of evil intentions the thinker of this strategie had, since ist originated within the brain of one polisch decendent Vice Admiral Arthur K.Cebrowski, and another openly jewish wack job – his assistant Thomas P.M.Barnett. What were those two
      thinking, what this imoral strategie would do to the US soldiers on the ground – and with that, long-term to the moral fiber of Amerca? Stuff like this will destroy anbody who comes into contact with it, the conquered people physically and the conquerors morally and spiritually.

      Was it / is it (because it destroys everyone) – all part of the thinking ‘Redemption through Sin’ of the mad polish/german hasidic sect around Jakob Frank, from whose first wife Hannah Frank, Zbigniew Brzezinski directly descended, and where also the family line of Angela Merkel (and many other, including the Rothschilds) comes from? Is this not a strong indication that it’s all a part of the long term plan of the eschatolic messianic movement, which is at the heart of WW1 with the Balfour Declaration, and of WW2 with the Haavara Agreement of the God-Chancellor of the “thousand-year Reich” and his adviser Rabbi Leo Baeck?

      Anyway, may their ashes rot – these actions of bombing hospitals and civil infrastructure is part of the Cebrowski Strategy and shows what America will do to any other nation -regardless- by peaceful or military means – which obviously has to lead to global war, and this global war may be the fulfillment of wack-job religious prophecy…

      Water supply networks as they did outside Damascus, whilst a better example maybe would be Libya.

  • PZIVJ

    SDF now getting serious ?
    Hajin is the last “town” controlled by Daesh rats in the area, except for villages, etc.
    Will be good to take the pocket out, also will help out the SAA on other side of the river.
    Now bracing to hear a lot of FLAK. :D

  • Tommy Jensen

    Hajiin Hospital was in the way.
    Assad and Syria will need new usury loans from Western banks to build it up again…………..LOL. You are gonna be a slave Neo…………..LOL.

    • PZIVJ

      Your post is in very bad taste about the civilians.
      Starting to wonder if you are just joking around on this site or just a troll.
      Because it is not even funny. :(

      • Tommy Jensen

        Agree. But the reality here is very bad taste and not funny. Thats why.

        • PZIVJ

          Do not try to patronize me with bull shit Tommy Jensen.
          My question: Are you a paid for troll?

          • Gregory Casey

            Tommy isn’t a paid troll. Rather, he’s a wholly brainwashed NATO airhead who simply can’t help himself propagandizing whenever he has a keyboard within striking distance.

      • You can call me Al

        Well, I thought he was such a troll over the time on here, I have blocked him.

    • Barba_Papa

      Except Western banks aren’t going to loan Assad anything. As the West won’t pay shit until he’s gone, remember? So you should have said Chinese banks instead.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    I’m shocked, but I’m shocked it didn’t happen sooner.
    100 US airstrikes resulting in 11 civilian deaths. Two things here,
    1. out of 100 airstrikes there were only [I feel horrible saying only] 11 civilian deaths, does that mean the US killed hundreds of Isis fighters at the same time, Isis is supposed to be the target afterall.
    2. Why does the US need 100 airstrikes, I keep saying it’s because the Kurds are on strike and not fighting now, can anybody explain why the US needs this many airstrikes here in this tiny little location, isn’t this exactly what they did to Raqqa city when they were trying to kick Isis out there, and Isis had tens of thousands of fighters there, but they’re only supposed to have had 1,500 here, and that was 5 months ago, but they still have 1,500 now, even with hundreds of airstrikes every few days, something’s not adding up.
    Throw a Kurdish strike into the equation and then add the 4600 Isis fighters that escaped and hid from the SDF during the victorious Ar Raqqah/Al Hasakah campaign 5 months ago, everything makes sense, it all adds up then.

    • Barba_Papa

      Could be a case of not so much 100 air strikes being carried out (as in 1 air strike = 1 aircraft sortie), but 100 bombs being dropped individually. And since aircraft can carry up to two to four bombs, depending on the loadout, aircraft and distance to target the number of actual air strikes being carried can be anything between half and only a quarter of that number.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        True but it’s still 100 bombing strikes even if only by 25 aircraft, that’s still a hell of a lot, and over proportional to anything else we’ve seen in Syria so far, even the Russians aren’t launching as many sorties, and they have 15 to 20000 HTS they’re bombing, not the paltry 1500 the US is.

        • You can call me Al

          Genocide or just stoking up the orders for the military supply corporations ?.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            I think it’s a simple case of blackmail, the Kurds are using their refusal to fight Isis as leverage over Trump, and Trumps calling their bluff and bringing in the strikebreakers [Arabs and Christians] to take their place. The replacements are nowhere as good as the Kurds were though, hence the massive amount of US airstrikes, which says to me, if it wasn’t for those airstrikes, the replacement SDF at Hajin would have already been overrun.
            The US has also just said it wants to train another 40,000 military personnel to provide security for the US controlled north, but they already have about 30,000 well trained Kurdish SDF that were doing the job very well. The US’s only seems to be training the other ethnic groups atm, the Arabs,Turkmen, the Christians and other minorities, the US seems to be focusing on them now instead of the Kurds, I wonder why.
            Is it to replace some of the Kurds who are refusing to fight, or is just a way of enticing more of the Arab population over to the US aligned side and making them feel more included.
            It’s still a bit of a mystery, I think we might have to wait a little longer to find out what the real story here is.
            About 2 weeks ago, more than 30 Kurdish politicians switched from the pro Assad camp back to the US camp. They’d were aligned to the US at the start, but after Erdogan’s second incursion a lot of Kurds, these 30 included, joined the pro Assad camp for a few months, but with this 30 switching back to the US’s side just recently, I’m worried it might set a precedent for the other Kurds, who might start flooding back to Trump as well. I wonder if they’re sucking up to Trump now because their strike failed, and they’re now worrying the Arabs and others will become just as important to the US as they were/are themselves.

    • You can call me Al

      Remember, due to the large families / cultural structures in the ME, 11 civilian deaths = hundreds of new rebels / terrorists, full of hate.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        You’re right, Isis grew strong on this sort of justifiable hatred, indiscriminate US bombing is probably Isis’s strongest recruitment factor.
