Terrorist attack in the heart of Damascus

34



The name of the Saba Bahrat Square, located in the heart of Damascus, is translated as “Seven Rivers”. And, although there are no rivers, but seven busy streets emanate from this square. This is one of the most populous districts of the capital.

On the square is a huge white Central Bank building with a beautiful fountain near it. Right behind the Central Bank is another building in which several economic departments of the country are located. And in front of this building are residential buildings, the Salim Bukhari school for girls, the 15 old mosque of the century - one of the oldest in Damascus.

And in the 8 area of ​​April, a powerful explosion rocked the 25 minutes later in the afternoon.



At the Central Bank, the windows were shaken, but the main blow fell on the building located near it. And also - in residential buildings across the street. As usual, numerous cars drove along the street and there were many passersby. Now, after the barbaric atrocities committed by Western-backed terrorists, some of these ordinary people will never again pass through the familiar streets of the southern city.

The attack was carried out using a car bomb driven by a suicide bomber. The usual tactics of al-Qaidovtsev ...



The death toll immediately - 10 people, but then the number of victims increased to 25. Hundreds of wounded. They are employees of economic institutions, passers-by, and residents of houses. Among the victims and victims are schoolgirl girls.

In the wall of the mosque - a monument of antiquity representing historical value - an explosion made a huge hole, distorted furniture and interior. A lot of damaged cars.



I went up to the site of the explosion - the first thing I see is a yellow taxi, covered in blood ... His driver and passengers are no longer alive. Some of the cars are no longer recoverable and will no longer pass through the city. Eyewitnesses said that after the explosion and the fire that broke out as a result of it, the fuel tanks of those cars that were parked nearby or simply passed by, detonated, and their owners did not have time to escape.



Strongly inherited and residential buildings. Two houses were badly damaged, a few more were damaged. Glass pobybiliv in houses located half a kilometer.



On the steps of a dwelling house - fragments of broken glass and blood.



In the affected apartments - the ruined life of people who lived peacefully.



It is terrible to see among the wreckage - shoes that perhaps no one else will wear. Pink women's slipper ... what happened to her owner after this hell?



Suffered and many shops. Their owners, sighing, collected the surviving goods. The pharmacy, torn apart by the explosion, is as if puzzled too: “For what?”



The bus stop is destroyed and completely broken. What happened to those who waited on her bus or a minibus to go about their business?



Rescuers work quickly. The builders immediately began to clean up the area.



The head of government, Vail Al Khalki, and several ministers of the Syrian government arrived at the scene of the explosion. Volunteers of youth organizations came next to clear the site of the terrorist attack and heal the wounds of the city ...

I stand among the ruins, and one and the same thought arises: here would be those who speak of "peaceful rebels" fighting for "freedom." This would be those who supply weapon terrorists and their support inspire them to carry out more and more explosions. These would be those who mourn Margaret Thatcher, but who does not shed a single tear about people killed and wounded in their homes, about those who survived, but lost loved ones, about those left without shelter, because his apartment, together with all property acquired over the years, turned into a pile of ruins.

The barbaric terrorist attack committed in the very heart of the Syrian capital was condemned by many political parties and movements of the UAR. The Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the UN Security Council, which tells about the circumstances of the incident and contains the requirement to bring to justice the parties that support the terrorists.

At the official level, the crime was condemned by Russia and Iran. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said that the main blame for the incident lies with the countries supporting and financing gangs in Syria. He stressed that the Syrian people resolutely reject interference in their affairs, and this attack is a confirmation of the failure of plans to carry out such intervention in order to destroy the country.

It remains to add that on the eve of the explosion, the Syrian army achieved major successes in the province of Damascus. She managed to surround the East Guta area, where counterterrorism operations continue. In response to the successes of the Army, terrorists commit crimes against innocent civilians. Who else to take revenge if the Army is stronger than them? But their impotent rage speaks only about one thing - the defeat of terrorists is inevitable!

For several decades now, some countries have been doing everything possible to advance their interests ... of course, it is wrong to follow them. but to fight back is the right thing. while Russia is still chewing snot and repeating everything about diplomacy ... utopia ...

      New video from Syria

      A brief summary of the situation in Syria for April 9th


      A brief summary of the situation in Syria for April 10th


      The tank hits the militants hiding in the mosque


      Militant operator destroyed


      ITAR-TASS reports on the transfer of army units to the southern regions of Syria to free them from militants. It is about regaining control of the highways leading to Jordan. In parallel with this, there are reports of the interception of large consignments of illegal arms supplies in Lebanon:

      Al-Mayadin TV channel reported yesterday that Lebanese border guards had intercepted a consignment of military-technical equipment intended for the so-called "Syrian Free Army" in the seaport of Beirut. Three days ago, in the mountainous region of Ain Zhalta, Lebanese gendarmes seized a large shipment of smuggled weapons and ammunition, which was also supposed to be ferried to the rebels.

      It is clear that the Syrian command is serious about reports of the concentration of militant groups in two directions - Lebanese and Jordanian - and is trying to seize the initiative and transport routes that lead from the borders to Damascus located close to them.

      In general, after a very unsuccessful summer for the government in the year 12, it seems that very serious attention was paid to intelligence work. Increasingly, the army acts ahead of the curve and on the opposite courses. This happened at the end of November near Damascus, in mid-March there and on the southeastern approaches to Aleppo. Intelligence is not always successful — the capture of Raqqa was clearly a surprise to the command, but current events in the south of the country fit into the pattern — thorough reconnaissance — information assessment — a preemptive strike.

      Noteworthy is the coordinated work of the Syrians with the Lebanese secret services. It seems that while organizationally, the Syrians continue to outplay the militants, even despite very serious help from the West and the Gulf.

      were there no souls of innocent children in Libya or Iraq? and no one was able to do anything ... to resist such an onslaught only by defense is unlikely to succeed ... these lumps, the Islamists - they filled up 50, 100 still arrived, and the Muslim woman gave birth to another 20 ...

        Everything has its time. Against us in the 41st and 91st, the whole Western world waged war and survived nothing. And the fact that they give birth to people, so this is bad !? What to invest in these people from childhood will grow. In Syria, Muslims also fight against terrorists. And no one bothers you to give birth and raise children. So your comment is not the topic.
        This chaos was sown intentionally, in order to reduce the world's population to 2 billion, by the Rothschild and Rockefeller families. And accordingly, the fascist Zionists.
        There is World War 4, and Syria is the last frontier before the attack on Russia. These people’s plans do not include the existence of the European Union either. So the same terrorists after Syria can head to Europe. The same thing awaits them, but they don’t have a leader like Assad!

            Of course, I do not know all the information about what kind of help our government still provides to the people of Syria, but I think not only moral and diplomatic!

        About a week ago, an article appeared in the Syrian press under the strange title “The commander of the Al-Faruk battalion in the city of Til Abyad declared himself a supporter of President Assad and an enemy of Jabhat Al-Nusra
        Suddenly, the "Jabhat An-Nusra" terrorist group stopped accepting new members, the leader of which said: "The doors of" Jabhat An-Nusra are closed for new jihadists "
        Terrorists from Jabhat An-Nusra, Al-Farouk and other groups are zealously killing and arresting each other, at the same time blaming the Jordanian, American intelligence agencies and their scammers for their problems. Killed one of the most famous terrorists, nicknamed "Syrian Bin-Laden." Islamists fear SSA, non-Islamists fear Jabhat An-Nusra, many Islamist leaders suddenly felt trapped, media spread the word that a special militant group was created to destroy Jabhat An-Nusra
        The anti-Syrian press published a correspondence between the heads of the aerial intelligence service and the national security of Syria. It contained data on agents deployed in coalition ranks and surveillance of coalition members in their countries of residence, as well as European meetings and gatherings that discussed the formation of a provisional government and a new constitution for post-war Syria.
        They all fail to take Damascus, in this case it remains only to show their true nature: to blow up children and gnaw their throats to each other.

        something like that.

    Constantly defending is the worst option. Anyway over time, chocks will crush them ... fanaticism + money = result. it is necessary to do sabotage on the territory of Qatar, Turkey, the United States and other zatsat ... denying any involvement, of course. for example, to blow up an oil pipeline in Qatar or an oil refinery, so that it wouldn’t be to foreign countries — so that they would * seldom disentangle themselves. and Russia in general is stupid-fucking play diplomacy? Everyone cares about it, but Russia alone pretends that there is any result ... utopia ... the guys are bending their line without any hesitation. about Russia already and Qatar wipes his legs, and Turkey. Turkmenistan also wants ... there are not enough radicals in the Foreign Ministry.

In general, in addition to our country, there are very few states in the world that are not afraid to tell the truth from the UN rostrum. If you read articles of this kind in your own country, this absolutely does not mean that people from the rest of the world have such an opportunity! You can personally help the Syrians too
          food or money, if you wish. Just go to any Orthodox church in your city and ask your father who you can give medicines or food for those in need in Syria. You can do the same in mosques if you are Muslim! And it’s not necessary to pick up machine.

Uncles from the Kremlin intentionally do not create a full-fledged counterweight to the West. Otherwise there would be no such hot spot as Syria. Yes, of course, Russia’s tepericha power is not what it was before, but even under these conditions, with great desire and political will, you can dictate your will. All the conditions for this are, there is not only one - a normal ruler.

    An idea came to me here, of course very controversial and lacking any special data, but curious. At the first stage of the uprising in Syria, the United States was very aggressive against Assad, the Russian Federation, on the contrary, was strongly in favor. Today, both of these countries are limited to declarative statements without sudden gestures. It seems to me that these countries are relatively beneficial to this war. The Syrian army, consisting of religious minorities and secular Sunnis, has been actively grinding the elite of international terror for the second year. To consider that the number of professional militants is infinite is hardly true. Their 50-70 thousand in the world of Sunni Islam and they are more likely a lighter than the fire itself. So, have the USA and the Russian Federation agreed to grind all this international elite of the Islamists on the territory of Syria? Your thoughts mrs?

    To the North Korean leader, what a fool to do. He would send military aid to Syria by people of tens of thousands. He blocked the border with Jordan and Turkey. Then he really could have raced before Amers and Qatari. Syrians would save North Korea from hunger. Well, they threw oil. wish.

    Here you can draw a parallel with Iraq, al-Qaeda doesn’t care where to explode the money you need to learn from Arab democracies.
    The leader of one of the largest Syrian militant Islamist groups "Front al-Nusra" Abu Muhammad Golani has sworn allegiance to the leader of "Al-Qaeda" Ayman al-Zawahiri.

    The leader of one of the largest Syrian militant Islamist groups "Front al-Nusra" Abu Muhammad Golani has sworn allegiance to the leader of "Al-Qaeda" Ayman al-Zawahiri.

    According to him, this will not affect the struggle waged by his troops against troops loyal to the Syrian leadership.

    “The sons of al-Nusra Front take an oath of allegiance to Ayman al-Zawahiri,” Golani said in an audio address released on Wednesday.

    Al-Nusra Front claims to have resorted to multiple suicide attacks as well as armed attacks on government facilities.

    The Free Syrian Army, the largest armed rebel organization in the Syrian conflict, hastened to distance itself from al-Nusra Front, although it admitted that it interacts with it from time to time.

    On the eve of the Iraqi branch of al-Qaeda for the first time confirmed that this network includes the al-Nusra Front, which is fighting in the Syrian conflict on the side of the rebels.

    These statements further confirm widespread rumors about al-Qaeda's involvement in the civil war in Syria for two years now.
