The war in Syria flares up again

Agree, the calm in Syria looks somehow strange. Against the backdrop of a mutual aggravation of rhetoric around foreign policy issues, Russia-US, Russia-NATO relations, and even personal contradictions between heads of government and senior officials of countries.

It is strange already because it is in Syria that Russians and Americans, together with allies from the alliance, are waging a real fight against terrorism, defending democracy, a legally elected government, and so on.

The media (regardless of the country) report on military patrols that ply the routes and ensure peace in some areas, on humanitarian convoys, on medical assistance to the Syrians ... It seems that we are in the informational USSR of the early 80s.

Once upon a time, newspapers reported daily about Soviet soldiers helping to build orphanages, roads, hospitals, etc. And at this time, active hostilities had already begun and the first 200s had already been sent to the USSR.

Meanwhile, according to reports from our military, the activity of illegal armed formations has sharply increased. Mining roads, killing civilians, attacks on the posts of the Syrian army and other attributes of an active guerrilla war are now common again.

The militants began to act especially actively in the provinces of Homs and Deir ez-Zor. It is there that we see the most insolent and undisguised actions of terrorists. At the same time (with the exception of cover groups) the militants disappear somewhere at the slightest danger. In most cases, the losses of gangs are calculated by the piece.

Left for Africa, but didn't make it


After the successes of the Syrian army in 2019 and the capture of the "capital" of IS (banned in the Russian Federation) Raqqa, the pseudo-state has become quiet.

It was not clear how the Turks, Americans and Europeans would behave. But most importantly, the future plans of Syria and Russia were not clear. Either the continuation of hostilities in the already almost cleared areas, or pick out terrorists in Idlib.

If we consider the map of hostilities, then the decision to transfer the main attack to Idldib was obvious. Moreover, the American military command guaranteed the fulfillment of the tasks of the fight against terrorism in the controlled territories, and the militants controlled by Turkey did indeed intensify.

However, further events for the militants became a gift. The province of Homs has become an excellent refuge for terrorists. As soon as you change the name of the organization, and not really caring about ideology and other "little things", as you move into the category of moderate opposition. And it seems like they are not the enemies of Damascus, but people with a different political position.

The Al-Tanf military base, located northwest of the US border crossing of the same name in the province of Homs, has become a permanent place of work for American intelligence, British secret intelligence service (SIS / MI-6), and Jordanian intelligence. In addition, instructors from special forces for guerrilla warfare, sniper and sabotage work work on this base on a permanent basis.

Today, it is no secret to anyone that it is there that the militants are being trained to fight the Syrian army. It is there that the places where the militants leave after the raids and sabotage are located. And there they receive the necessary medical care in case of injury and contusion.

Information about the militant camp near the American base has been confirmed many times.

Syrian intelligence knows enough about the locations. But the Syrians are afraid to carry out operations to neutralize the militants in this area. Direct confrontation with terrorists is fraught with a meeting with American troops. And, therefore, the beginning of the DB is already against the United States.

The air attack remains.

However, even here the Syrians have problems. Let me remind you that the Al-Tanf base is the brainchild of American intelligence. When it was opened in the spring of 2017, the task was to protect this base from attacks from all directions. Today a rather complex air defense system is organized there.

The sky and the nearest approaches to the base are controlled by American UAVs. All dangerous areas are protected not only by checkpoints, but also by positions of heavy equipment, including HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems. It is quite difficult to open such a defense system without the participation of heavy equipment and missile strikes.

Now, it seems to me, it becomes clear why the "African tour" of many militants ended so quickly in the province of Homs. It remains to be seen why this is happening.

Who needs this world


Exactly. Who needs peace?

Besides the Syrian people, of course. And that's not all.

The current situation is beneficial to the Americans. It is partly beneficial to the Turks. And the militants. Let's leave the issue of Turkish interests aside. This is a big and serious conversation. But about Americans and others like them it is worth recalling.

Here it is necessary to recall the former American President Donald Trump. More precisely, his statement from November 2019 in a special speech on the situation in northern Syria:

“We have taken the oil under protection, so a small American contingent will remain in the region where the oil is located. We will protect it and decide what to do with it in the future. "

Clearly and without any politeness.

The oil is ours, and we will dispose of it of our own free will. War is just a way of doing business, nothing more.

However, Trump also made another important statement there even today:

“We will come up with something with the Kurds so that they have some money, some kind of inflow of funds.

Maybe we can get one of our big oil companies to start working there and do it properly.

But they will have an inflow of funds. And now it, in fact, is not.

There is a fight going on.

It's a small oil region, but everyone is fighting over what is there. "

The version of the desire of the United States to preserve instability in Syria, and therefore to retain control over hydrocarbon deposits, is also confirmed by the recent statement of the Russian ambassador Alexander Efimov:

"The American occupation not only impedes the development of Damascus's natural resources, but also prevents the restoration of the sovereignty of the legitimate authorities throughout Syrian territory, in particular, pandering to separatist aspirations."

“I believe that it is too early to talk about the plans of the American administration regarding Syria.

Another thing is that one should hardly expect, in principle, a revision of the US line in Syrian affairs.

The pressure on Damascus is likely to continue, and the American troops on Syrian soil in this sense are one of Washington's main instruments, as the Americans themselves have repeatedly spoken about. "

Brief conclusions


The Russian military has more than once declared about the activation of terrorists and the strengthening of their support from the Americans. Especially in the already mentioned provinces of Homs and Deir ez-Zor. Today, the Russian Aerospace Forces are again actively helping the Syrian army during operations against militants.

The role of MTR units has grown again. Serious intelligence is needed to conduct successful operations against militants. It is necessary to identify not only the accumulation of terrorists, but also the location of the bases of bandit formations, the infrastructure of terrorists, caches and depots with weapons and ammunition.

Only high-class specialists can do this.

Here is one of the latest messages from the RF Ministry of Defense:

“In a desert area in the east of the province of Homs, a large cache was found used by ISIS militants (banned in the Russian Federation) to conduct terrorist activities in the provinces of Homs and Deir ez-Zor.

In the course of the operation, four militants were killed in two pickup trucks with heavy machine guns, who apparently performed the function of security. "

“The cache contained 36 assault rifles and light machine guns, seven large-caliber machine guns, a heavy-duty grenade launcher with 28 grenades, an ATGM installation, 87 mines and grenades, about 40 kilograms of explosives and over 22 thousand ammunition, including those produced by NATO countries.

The militants also hid about 45 kilograms of medicines, some of which are also from abroad, and almost half a ton of food. ”

Also, according to our intelligence, so-called "white helmets" have appeared in the provinces.

So, you should know expect a provocation about the next

"Application of chemical weapons».

From this we can conclude that the war in Syria is far from over.

Terrorism in the Middle East has not been eradicated, but only suffered heavy losses.

And now, with the help of our "partners", it is being reborn.

The deterioration of our relations with the US and NATO contributes to this.

      As long as there is oil, the war will not end not only in Syria. Always someone (I will not point a finger, firstly, this is not cultural, and secondly, everyone already knows who it is) who will want to get their hands on this oil.

        I think that wars will not end when there is no oil. If there is territory, there is always something for the strong to take away from the weak, for example, fresh water. This is, unfortunately, human nature. One of the basic human needs is the desire to dominate. It is unlikely that in the foreseeable future we are threatened with peace and prosperity. Moreover, human civilization as a whole today is experiencing more regression than progress.

      The globalists, disguised as the old man Bidon, have come to prolong their rotten world domination.
      To do this, they need to exacerbate those hotbeds of tension that were under Barack.
      In fact, everything that is being done now is a continuation of the policy that was under the black president. And strange! Where did the BLM protests go? Where is Antifa and other freaks with Trump, objectionable to Democrats?

    Biden came to the White House and the movement began in Syria, I would instruct to deal with the petty terror of Wagner's PMC, this structure works great where the state has no reason to interfere.
    Why were the oil-bearing regions of Syria not immediately liberated earlier? The Americans turned out to be smarter in this regard, being there before everyone else ... squeezing them out of there is now a big problem, now they will shit from there all of Syria for many years.

        There is no need to justify our command, which at first behaved very modestly in Syria, in a word - they were afraid to act tough. Remember how long our people hesitated to bomb or not to bomb the columns of tankers with oil from Syria to Turkey. They "chewed" for a long time, but in Russian they chewed snot.

              Syrian militias, acting on the side of the government army of Bashar al-Assad, carried out an operation on February 7 in the area of ​​the former Al-Isba oil refinery in Deir ez-Zor province. There they tried to identify the militants of the activated "sleeping" cell of the Islamic State ..

              The militias did not coordinate their actions with the command of the Russian task force and, as a result, came under attack from the American coalition, the military department said in a statement. Only after the shelling, as a result of which 25 people were injured, the Russian group at the Khmeimim base learned the position of the American side. Military officials from the US-led international coalition said the former Al Isba plant was under the control of the Syrian Democratic Forces and members of the United States Army.

              "This incident has once again demonstrated that the true goal of continuing the illegal presence of US forces in Syria is no longer the fight against the international terrorist group ISIS, but the seizure and control of economic assets belonging only to the Syrian Arab Republic," the Ministry of Defense said.



              The Russian Foreign Ministry first confirmed the deaths of Russians as a result of a strike by a US-led international coalition on pro-government Syrian forces in Deir ez-Zor province last week. According to preliminary data, we are talking about five Russians.


              From this official information, it follows that a clash between pro-government Syrian forces (including citizens of the Russian Federation - mercenaries) and American forces took place. Then, even at the UN, this topic was raised ... that is. this is not a fake and not cartoons, further, as for your comment about a hundred killed Russians, this is not confirmed information with reference to the fighters of the Wagner PMC, who wrote ... that there was a meat grinder in that place and many victims (including the Wagnerites), and Believe it or not, it's up to you. Personally, I admit it to myself ... war is war, and you can't do without losses. True, not 100 dead PMCs, but a couple of dozen, say + militias and fighters from the Syrian armies and other support groups. those. there, the loss figures vary from 55-220 dead. For instance

              Moskovsky Komsomolets reported 40 dead and 72 wounded, specifying that this number includes both Russians and Syrians.


              but again, you can decide for yourself whether to believe in these data or not. And the collision took place, it is a fact.

Maybe they were standing next to each other across the river about seven kilometers, watching - and they were hooked? Or it was another blow.

                      what confirms that they participated - attacked?!? the fact that they died !? Foreign Ministry confirms only five deaths "as a result of the US strike on the province" ... Maybe they were standing next to each other across the river about seven kilometers, watching - and they were hooked? Or it was another blow. What are you doing? you inflate - with "parentheses", "known incident" and so on, like that said 200 people, that 500.


                      Have you followed this story at all? At the beginning, when a wave in the media arose, our Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs seemed to have taken water in their mouths, there was silence ... then, as new details and details appeared + the official reaction of the US authorities, movements began ... American forces attacked the pro-government Syrian forces, the Foreign Ministry further noted:

                      The Russian Foreign Ministry first confirmed the deaths of Russians as a result of a strike by a US-led international coalition on pro-government Syrian forces in Deir ez-Zor province last week. According to preliminary data, we are talking about five Russians.


                      what were they doing there? Have you admired the views of nature? You are not a stupid person and you should understand that they will not (officially) tell about their affairs. In our country, mercenarism is a criminal offense, and PMC Wagner does not officially exist. And unofficially, there is a lot of information about their activities .... and it is natural that in the war, losses occur. Even according to the official statistics of the Ministry of Defense, there are plenty of casualties among servicemen (in Syria), and no one (at least officially) counts mercenaries.

                      Further, regarding the fact that I "inflate" about a couple of hundred Russians, these are your words, I just commented on them and said that this is unofficial data and what I think about this. But the incident / collision itself was directly, the question is only in the number of participants and data on the killed, i.e. they differ.

                      This concludes our discussion, I said everything that I wanted, and I am not going to prove anything to you.

The authorities acknowledged their weakness, the Turks, taking this opportunity, began actively, together with the militants of the igil (destroyed in the Kremlin), to squeeze the territory of Syria for themselves!

I think thus the US strategy is to weaken Russia, in Syria, of course, not so many forces and means are involved, but very it is clearly seen that the United States is taking control of all the means and forces in Ukraine and sooner or later they will send non-brothers to Russia.

    At the same time (with the exception of cover groups) the militants disappear somewhere at the slightest danger.

    It's elementary, Watson! The militants instantly become peaceful farmers. In the 20s in Turkestan, Budyonny very simply figured out such "peaceful" ones - if the persecuted Basmachi hid in the village and disappeared in it, then Semyon Mikhailovich simply took the male population out and took off his pants - who has a red ass (which means he just rode on a horse), was expended.

    If the Syrian people are not promised, but prescribed in the law that they will own land, enterprises, natural resources, then this war will last no more than two years. But this will not.

    Syrian intelligence knows enough about the locations. But the Syrians are afraid to carry out operations to neutralize the militants in this area. Direct confrontation with terrorists is fraught with a meeting with American troops. And, therefore, the beginning of the DB is already against the United States.

    Well, if they are afraid, then they will live like this. It's not ours to start a war against the United States. To defend its country and territory is not only a right, but also a duty of Syria itself. Now, if they started, we would undoubtedly support. And if this situation suits them, then who will forbid them. But a couple of splashes from the CAA would have flown to that base, I would have gone home from a dozen two hundredths under striped flags, the question would have immediately arisen there: what are the US troops doing there in general?

    The territory of Syria is valuable not only for the presence of oil, but also for its favorable geographical position in the Middle East. Turkey seeks to establish control in the northern regions in order to create a sanitary zone against the Kurds. Israel seeks to expand its buffer zone against Iran. Russia wants to maintain at least a minimal military presence, for which it supports Bashar al-Assad. The Americans are stupidly seeking to destabilize any configuration of military-political forces in the region that does not suit them. In other words - a complete mess that can last indefinitely!
