US coalition air strike on pro-Iranian units in Syria

27

Aviation the US coalition struck a blow on the territory of Syria.


At least 12 fighters from Iranian-backed units were killed as a US-led coalition launched an airstrike against pro-Iranian units in eastern Syria. Military aircraft attacked a militia convoy near the Iraqi border in Deir ez-Zor province.

This, citing its own sources related to the armed conflict in Syria, was reported today by the Yeni Safak newspaper, which is published in Turkey.

Trade routes and pipelines linking Syria with Iraq and Jordan run through the area where pro-American forces attacked. Irregular armed formations formed from Syrian citizens are operating here, focused on Iran and controlled by the command of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

The day before, on February 11, Sky News Arabia reported an air raid on a convoy with an Iranian weapons, which just before that crossed the Syrian border, arriving from the Iraqi side. The attack was carried out by planes of the Israeli armed forces.

And on January 13, IDF aircraft bombed in this part of Eastern Syria near the cities of Deir ez-Zor and Abu Kemal, weapons depots, as well as positions of government troops and pro-Iranian Shiite detachments.

      The game is difficult and while they are on our side, which means that their defeat is not beneficial to us. Apparently for this, the transport aircraft of the Iranian Air Force have already been seen at our airbase in Khmeimim. They didn't fly there empty

      It’s strange to hear this from a supporter of a person who does not support this military operation there.

        Even if Iran is not a tiger, but a rather sharp-toothed force, and at one point the sga and the Jews pull it by the tail. And then they will shout -And what is it for us, it's all Iran ... wow, what scoundrels

          In fact, Iran in those parts is in its own right, but the United States is not. Again, no matter how much the States do not talk about Iran, it still does not give up, but only gets stronger politically and increases its influence and becomes an ever greater obstacle to the United States, but the States cannot boast of strengthening their influence in the region - and at home they are already so not the owner, that it is time to turn off foreign expeditions, so as not to get in the political sense something like the "Vietnamese syndrome", which for 15-20 years curled up the head of the hawks.
          Something like that.

          Of course, I understand that sympathies are on the Iranian side here, but on the whole this is already a routine game, Israel is doing a little regular bloodletting to the Iranian forces in Syria, all within the framework of open and non-public agreements.

            ... Israel is doing some regular bloodletting to Iranian forces in Syria, all within ...

            Are you really crazy or something? That is, an attack on citizens of another country, on the territory of a third, is normal for you, quite commonplace and correct. And Israel's actions are justified?
            Then why do Jews complain about Hizbala and others like them? After all, these are just ordinary actions of the same as the Jews, the terrorists.

        The Jews can be understood: the more Tehran becomes stronger, the more Tel Aviv will stagger, and the stagger will go from below: it is not by chance that all Israel was ready to rush to the airport as soon as Crimea happened ...

            And rightly so, a part will remain - so there will be those who want to sit on the vacated land. And those that are more adventurous would gladly get out of there - it would be where with the Soviet pension ...

      That's right, this is the ancient "Shiite arc", once formed by the Persians, where the Jews are now located at the western end.

        The ancient Shiite arc never existed.
        Iran has been trying to form it in the last 10-20 years.
        The Arab population of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq has always been Sunnis
        (except for the south of Iraq). And the Arabs of Lebanon were generally Christians.
        Iran with abundant financial aid in poor neighborhoods
        of these countries is successfully promoting the transition of the population from Sunni Islam
        in Shiite. Even in Gaza, Shiite neighborhoods have sprung up.

          On Thursday, February 11, in the afternoon, an unidentified flying object was struck near the Al-Qaim checkpoint.
          This was rare as it took place in the daytime, a sign that the attack was of great importance and needed to be stopped despite the risk of operating in Syria in daylight. In broad daylight, a UAV attacked a shipment of Iranian weapons.
          The convoy was heading for eastern Syria to bring weapons from Iran through Iraq to the Lebanese Hizbala.

            According to reports of a recent attack attributed to Israel in northeastern Syria, the target was a crossing through which trucks loaded with weapons enter, as well as a command center owned by Haj Mahdi, who monitors the movement. He did not die in this attack. Iranian actions on the border between Syria and Iraq and especially at the Al-Bukamal checkpoint are under the control of Haj Mahdi and his assistant Haj Kamil, who is in charge of logistic and administrative matters. Both work under the leadership of Hajj Rafari in Revolutionary Guards, who was responsible for attempting to attack Israel with a UAV in the Golan in August 2019. The Israeli foreign intelligence apparatus has identified smuggling in the area and in remote areas outside the control of the Iraqi government and the Syrian government. Hajj Mahdi is responsible for the main smuggling crossing at El Bukamal. Lorries with supplies, food and cargo containing heavy and light weapons and ammunition are imported through the crossing. Dozens of these trucks pass through the crossing every month.

              Wow, what vigilance! And that the Americans are not bombed by Israel - they are also illegally located in Syria? And the weapons are smuggled there.

    How disgusting is this predatory and not just war. It is unbearable to watch rich countries plunder Syria for more than ten years. And all this is done under hypocritical howls, about the fight against terrorism, the protection of "national interests" and other noodles, which are abundantly hung by the corrupt mass media of the whole world on the ears of the inexperienced inhabitants of their countries. There are no "national interests, but there are the interests of a handful of rich world ghouls, there is no" geopolitics ", but there is an attempt with beautiful words to justify aggression, intervention and robbery by the strong, the weak. And real terrorists do not ride in carts in the deserts, but on private planes purchased on stolen money from the peoples, they sit in Davos.

    The lack of response from the CAP is surprising. Even if the strike is delivered from the territory of another country, it is necessary to respond, because it will never end. Or are they just accumulating strength? The position of the ostrich and excuses like a blow from abroad are pretty fed up! Until a couple of planes are overwhelmed, they will receive it. And what does "US coalition" mean? Either the USA, or the US proxy, or a coalition of NATO countries, I think.
