Barbarians and marauders. As passed correspondent ITAR-TASS Dmitry Zelenin With reference to SANA, extremist oppositionists attacked the ancient Orthodox monastery of Elijah the Prophet in the vicinity of El Quseir. As the abbot of the monastery, Gadir Ibrahim, reported, the militants carried out church utensils, blew up the bell tower, destroyed the altar and the font. They demolished the statue of the Old Testament prophet, revered in Syria by both Christians and Muslims.

The hegumen recalled that the monastery, which is already one and a half thousand years old, is under state protection.

War in Syria? The war for Syria! Michael Stürmer («Die Welt»; source abbr. translation - "Inopressa") talked about the fact that the war in Syria is becoming a war for Syria.

The German journalist notes that Iran and Russia at any cost want to maintain the power of Assad: "... the Russians are the base on the Mediterranean Sea, the Iranians are the Arab ally."

“Qatar and Saudi Arabia, on the contrary, are looking for an opportunity to limit the influence of Iran and support the Sunnis in an armed confrontation with the Shiites,” the article says further. - Israelis want stability: push aside Islamic fanatics, keep chemical control weapon and at all costs to prevent medium-range Iranian missiles from falling into the hands of Lebanese Hezbollah.

Then the journalist writes about C-300 from Russia.

"Russia in three months is going to supply the C-300 air defense system to Syria, which fears the West," the German says. In this case, Stürmer continues, “there is a great danger that the civil war in Syria and the war between the Sunnis and the Shiites will develop into an opposition of the world nuclear powers ...”

“Israel, primarily using air force for the defense of the nearest zone and possessing a limited number of anti-missile defenses, is exposed to a new danger. Once Assad and his armed forces are under the protection of C-300 systems, Syria will be able to supply missiles to the Hezbollah movement that threatens the whole of Israel. Three months remain: too little for peace, enough war for the spread of war, ”the publication says.

Sturmer summarizes: “The C-300 system with service personnel from Russia, which the Russians, at the insistence of the United States, refrained from transferring to Iran, is changing all the strategic schemes. The war in Syria has long become a war for Syria, and now a new round is beginning. ”

Kerry's smile and Putin's victory. Michael Weiss ("Foreign Policy"; source abbr. translation - "Inopressa") in the article “Well, you fool!” writes: “Many Syrians who oppose the Bashar Assad regime give each other a visual obituary to their work - photographs in which US Secretary of State John Kerry smiles and makes friendly gestures with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. Shouldn't these people be on opposite sides of the Syrian conflict? And why does Lavrov look happier than his American colleague? ”

Perhaps the atmosphere of Kerry’s recent visit to Moscow should have shown that the host country has no illusions about who is more desperate here, the author of the article believes. He mentions the delay of the Kerry motorcade due to the parade rehearsal and his three-hour wait for an audience with Putin.

In the end, Kerry gave Putin exactly what he wanted: Washington’s consent to the resumption of negotiations, which should put an end to the geopolitical catastrophe in Syria. It is assumed that Russia will be able to ensure the presence of Assad or his deputies in the negotiations, and the United States - the presence of the political and military wing of the Syrian opposition, namely the Syrian national coalition and the highest military command of the Free Syrian Army, led by General Salim Idris, the author writes. “Idris now has to do what Russia's clients in this conflict have never had to do — ask for,” outraged Mr. Weiss.

Putin’s ideas are clearer, but the United States — and even some members of the Syrian opposition — are under the illusion that the Russian leader may change. “But why does he need it when the position of the West on Syria is constantly changing?” Asks the author of the material.

Weiss writes: “From the very beginning, the Russian strategy coincided with the strategy of the Assad regime: to tighten the conflict to such an extent that jihadists will play the most important role from the opposite side, and then fit it into the context of the global fight against terrorism.”

The author concludes: “In the light of the incessant flow of arms supplies and military advisers to the Assad regime, Putin believes that his expectations of restoring Russia's great-power status have been fulfilled and exceeded. Happy Victory Day! ”

Meeting in Sochi. 10 May, the President of Russia and the British Prime Minister held talks in Sochi, reports Interfax. At the initiative of Cameron were discussed options for a positive development of the situation in Syria. “We have a common interest in an early end to violence and the start of the peace process, the preservation of Syria as a territorially integral sovereign state,” Putin said.

The British prime minister said that Moscow and London still have differences in their positions on resolving the Syrian conflict, but the parties are striving towards a common goal. “It’s no secret that our views on this topic are different, but we share one common goal - to end the conflict, to give the Syrian people the opportunity to choose their government and prevent the growth and export of terrorism,” he said.

Cameron also said that the UK, Russia and the United States as permanent members of the UN Security Council should actively contribute to the peaceful settlement of the situation in Syria.

The British prime minister said: “I fully support the consultations that Lavrov and Kerry held this week to provide a political solution to the Syrian problem aimed at creating a transitional government based on the consent of the Syrian people as a whole.” “I agreed with President Putin that we, as permanent members of the Security Council, are obliged to lead this process together with our partners in the region and beyond,” Mr. Cameron added.

He stressed that "we must not only bring the Syrian regime and opposition politicians to the negotiating table, but also assist in the creation and development of a transitional government in Syria."

Cameron said he fully supports holding an international conference on Syria, which was agreed this week by the Russian foreign minister and the US secretary of state.

Iran has not received an invitation yet. Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said that the Islamic Republic is ready to take part in an international conference on Syria, which is convened by the Russian Federation and the United States. He made this statement in an interview with the German weekly "Der Spiegel", reports MIGnews.com.

Salehi noted that his country can serve as a mediator between the Syrian opposition and the Assad government. Iranian Foreign Minister stressed that Iran has not yet received an invitation to the conference.

On the terrorist attacks in Turkey: the official Syrian view. As transmits SANASAR Information Minister Omran Az-Zoubi said that the Turkish government had turned the border areas with SAR into centers of international terrorism, facilitating the transfer of mercenaries and terrorists to Syria, supplying them with weapons and ammunition. That is why the government of Erdogan bears political and moral responsibility for what is happening before the Syrian and Turkish peoples, as well as the peoples of the entire region.

The minister criticized some Turkish officials who accused Syria of terrorist attacks in the Reykhanly, and noted that Erdogan, who is building a career on the blood of Syrian and Turkish civilians, has no right to be in power.

"Lenta.ru", citing the Associated Press, quotes the words of Al-Zoubi, who said that the Turkish Prime Minister should “resign as a murderer and executioner”.

12 May, reminds "Lenta", the Turkish authorities announced the detention of nine people on suspicion of organizing and conducting terrorist attacks in Reyhanlı. All of them are Turkish citizens. According to authorities, several people involved in the organization of the terrorist attack are at large, writes the agency "Bloomberg".

According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey, Ahmet Davutoglu, the suspects are associated with the Syrian intelligence service "Mukhabarat" and not the first time carried out operations in the country.

The version that Damascus is behind the attacks, appeared shortly after the bombings in Reyhanlı. She was voiced by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Turkey, Muammer Guler. According to him, the reason for the attack could be the fact that in the Reykhanly, located near the Turkish-Syrian border, a large number of refugees from Syria live.

Erdogan also suggested that Syria was behind the attacks, but he also put forward another version that they could be carried out by those who were dissatisfied with Ankara’s attempt to resolve the conflict with Kurdish separatists.

Two explosions in the Reyhanlis occurred on May 11. The bombs were planted in cars parked on a busy business street, and were powered at intervals of 15 minutes. In addition to the 46 killed, another 50 people were injured.

"... do not stand in the way of Russia." Soner Cagaptay ("The Atlantic"; source of translation - Mixednews.ru) writes:

“Ankara fears that if Turkey invades Syria, Russia may do the same, inciting irreconcilable PKK elements in the country to lead an uprising against Turkish troops. <…>

In addition, these fears prompted Turkey to turn even more strongly to the United States in the next attempt to find protection under the NATO umbrella from the dim threat coming from the Russian giant. Taking into account the Turkish fear of Russia, any military actions by Turkey against the Assad regime will have to be due to the full support and participation of NATO.

For the Turks, when it comes to Moscow, история repeats every day - do not stand in the way of Russia so that it does not torture you again. ”


Bed for Bibi. At the time of the Israeli Prime Minister’s flight from Tel Aviv to London, a double bed was installed in his plane worth 138 thousand dollars. This was reported by the Daily Telegraph, reports correspondent ITAR-TASS Grigory Zimenkov.

The bed was set for a five-hour flight to the UK, where Netanyahu attended the funeral of Margaret Thatcher on April 17.

After news appeared in the Israeli media, 10 thousands of Israelis took to the streets across the country to demonstrate against the austerity measures taken by the government of the Jewish state.

A source from the entourage of the cabinet minister said that Netanyahu was not informed about the cost of the bed. “As soon as this became known, the Prime Minister immediately ordered to cancel the installation of such equipment on all his future European flights,” an anonymous source added.

"Land of Jihad." Love Lyulko (Pravda.ru) writes that the Tunisian army conducted an operation to destroy a group of terrorists, hiding in a wooded area on Mount Shaambi. Arab analysts rate Tunisia’s jihadist threat as very high.

According to the Tunisian Ministry of Defense, the group consisted of 15-20 people. According to the spokesman for the Ministry of the Interior Mohamed Ali Arui, Algeria also took part in the operation, but support was limited to information sharing. The group clashed with security forces on Thursday.

Tunisian authorities are concerned about whether activization of the militants would not be a reason capable of undermining the development of the tourism sector - the main source of foreign exchange. Tunisia’s president, Monsef Marzouki, declared that jihadist terrorist groups are “a serious threat that we must firmly stop.” After the “Arab spring” in Tunisia, forces descending the situation in the Middle East and in the countries of the Sahel began to leak.

Tunisian jihadists are represented by sworn allegiance to Al-Qaeda by Ansar Esharia Abu Iyad, who has always opposed the realization of Western interests in the Sahel, against the secular and left-wing parties.

Is the government able to cope with the looming threat? Obviously, this is problematic, according to analysts polled by the newspaper La Tribune. The security forces do not control the country, in the mosques there is an agitation uncontrolled by the state. The radicalization of youth is fostered by difficult social conditions and unemployment.

Jihadists in Tunisia have unprecedented freedom of movement, the media to spread their ideas, they are well funded and easily gaining influence, said Basile Torjeman, an Algerian expert on terrorism. He estimated that Tunisia "matured to become the land of jihad."

Burma: Buddhists against Muslims. In the article "The next murder of Muslims against the backdrop of silence" ("IRNA", Iran; source of translation - "InoSMI") Mohammad Musa Kazemi writes that the Muslims of Myanmar, who are already living in unbearable conditions, are victims of genocide and religious and tribal violence.

During the events in the town of Mektilla, Rakhine State, which began on March 19, more than 40 Muslims have become victims of rampant atrocities by extreme nationalists and Buddhists. According to the BBC, security forces and police, who were at the scene of the clashes, only at the end of the second day began to take some measures and put an end to the violence due to the fact that thousands of Muslim women and children were forced to leave their homes in Mectille. Muslims of Mectills were subjected to cruel violence by fundamentalist-minded Buddhists.

During the new wave of genocide, 20 Muslim boys were abducted from school, who were subsequently dismembered and burned.

Currently, thousands of Muslims of Mectills, who make up 30% of the total population of the city, are forced to leave their homes and live in tents near the city, the author writes.

In late March in Yangon, the former capital of the country, Muslim houses and mosques also became the target of attacks by extreme Buddhist groups.

Another shocking event was the death of thirteen teenagers in early April during a fire at a Muslim school in Yangon. The fire in Yangon and the March events in Mectill testify that extreme nationalists and Buddhists, with complete indifference and indirect support from the authorities of Myanmar, are carrying out a process of targeted genocide of Muslims.

Earlier, the UN recognized Rakhine Muslims as the most oppressed people in the world. However, despite all these statements and reports, the UN has in practice not taken any effective measures to curb violence against several hundred thousand Muslims of Rakhine and other areas of Myanmar by Buddhist fundamentalists.

In the extensive material entitled “Buddhists burn neighbors”, Anastasia Berseneva (Gazeta.ru) spoke about the ethnic riots in Burma. The pogroms are led by Buddhist monks: they survive from the country the Muslim people of Rohingya. People are burned alive here, their houses are set on fire. According to human rights activists from Human Rights Watch, the authorities and police in Burma encourage genocide.

The Russian, who turned out to be in the center of the pogroms, told the Gazeta.ru correspondent what he saw in the set fire to Mectill.

Moskvich Roman Korzh, traveling in Southeast Asia, was in this city in one of the first days of pogroms.

“It was really scary, real war,” he said. - Houses on fire. Buddhists poured gasoline on Muslims and set them on fire. Finding a place to sleep was a matter of life and death for me, because because of my beard I looked like a Muslim and no one would ask me to show my passport before killing me. ”


He continues:

“... I asked for 10 dollars to let me sleep on the floor at the reception desk, said that there was an emergency in the city, but there was no persuasion on the owners. In the end, the Buddhist taxi driver who drove me said that I could spend the night at his home for free. I was fed dinner, got a bottle of local rum. When the rum was over, the owner declared that it would be advisable for me not to depart far from home, since I look like a Muslim with a beard.

Then he took an ax and went outside. From time to time, he returned and described that they were burning houses, and Muslims were doused with gasoline and set on fire alive.

When I asked about the police and the army, he said that they were the first to flee the city, absolute anarchy and insecurity were felt. ”


The Russians had the impression that the conflict was organized from the outside. Locals say that Muslims and Buddhists in Burma have lived together for many years. Mixed marriages are common.

Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudoiono appealed to the government of Burma. He urged to resolve the conflict.

Blood was shed in Pakistan. Four terrorist attacks in Pakistan claimed the lives of 14 people, more than 40 residents were injured. The situation by telephone from Karachi was commented on by a Pakistani journalist and political scientist Zahida Hin, reports Ilona Yarosh ("Voice of Russia").

Three explosions thundered in Karachi, one in Peshawar. The first two explosions in the south were carried out by suicide bombers a few hours after the start of voting in elections. The targets were candidates and their supporters. 14 people died, several dozen civilians suffered.

In Peshawar, an explosion struck at a polling station for women. One person was killed, about a dozen were injured.

The fourth explosion thundered near a polling station in one of the marginal areas of Karachi. According to local media, several people were injured.

According to preliminary data, during the pre-election campaign as a result of terrorist attacks and attacks of militants killed about 130 people.

Zahida Hina, a well-known Pakistani journalist and political scientist, columnist for the Daily Express, said.

“Early in the morning in Karachi, when I went to vote at my place of residence — in the Gulistan-e-Johar area — it was calm. Although the polling station opened with some delay. However, according to media reports, not everywhere safely. Several explosions thundered in different parts of the country. The strongest - in the morning in Karachi, near the polling station, as a result of the explosion, people died. The explosion occurred near the “Urdu University” in Karachi and in some other places. In some polling stations, voting began late due to the fact that the ballots did not arrive in time. Radicals poured oil on the fire, trying to disrupt the vote. For example, the Islamist party “Jamaat-e-Islam” called for a boycott of elections in Karachi and Hyderabad, and the main one in Balochistan is “Jamhuri Vatan Party” - and all over the country. In Lahore, clashes took place between supporters of the influential Tehrik-e-Insaf and representatives of other parties and movements. Given the situation, it cannot be excluded that the head of the Electoral Commission will appoint a repeat vote in certain areas. But, on the whole, the elections, undoubtedly, were held, and the people of Pakistan took an active part in them. ”

Praised Bandera - go to jail. Andrei Rezchikov ("Sight") told that a bill on criminal liability for the glorification of the Bandera movement had been submitted to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. However, according to experts, the bill will not be: because of the resistance of deputies from Western Ukraine.

Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine from the ruling Party of Regions Vadim Kolesnichenko on Wednesday last week introduced a draft law “On the prohibition of the rehabilitation and glorification of individuals and organizations who fought against the anti-Hitler coalition”. As the deputy recalled in his blog, over the past five years, the UN has annually adopted a resolution on the inadmissibility of glorification of members of the Nazi movement and opponents of the anti-Hitler coalition. The resolution confirms the inadmissibility of heroization including the OUN-UPA (Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists - Ukrainian Insurgent Army), who "were sincere ideological supporters of Nazism and put the horrors of fascism into practice."

Kolesnichenko specifies that “the bill will establish criminal responsibility for the glorification and rehabilitation of individuals and organizations who fought against the anti-Hitler coalition.” “According to the world community, this practice contributes to the escalation of modern forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance,” said the deputy.

As for responsibility, then, as Kolesnichenko explained to “Look”, he, even in the last convocation of the Rada, proposed a bill that provided for imprisonment as a punishment - from two years to a life sentence.

This time, the deputy took as a basis the article of the Criminal Code on inciting ethnic hatred. “There are two criteria - from one to four and from four to five, depending on the severity of the consequences and the nature of this crime. This allows us to avoid accusations of increased cruelty, and at the same time we equate this with inciting conflict situations, ”said the deputy.

Kolesnichenko added that the law was drafted for several months and 8 was introduced on May - on the eve of Victory Day.

The American Crisis: The Pentagon is planning layoffs and is turning away from the Middle East. The Pentagon is going to massively reduce civil servants. This was stated by First Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, writes Pavel Tarasenko (Kommersant). According to the deputy minister, over the next five financial years of work, 5-6% of 780 thousand Pentagon civil servants will be deprived.

“These reductions are proportional to those carried out in the armed forces,” Mr. Carter emphasized. By 2017, the size of the American army should be reduced from 565 thousand to 490 thousand. The number of marines will be reduced from 201 thousand to 182 thousand.

The leadership of the US Department of Defense intends to save budget funds and other expenditure items. This fiscal year, it is planned to cut $ 20 billion in spending on military operations and maintenance of military equipment. According to Carter, the Pentagon plans to continue optimizing the network of US military bases and other facilities of this kind. For this, the military asked the US Congress to authorize the holding of a new, sixth round of the work of the relevant commission in 2015, which was previously able to achieve annual savings of 12 billion.

In the future, according to Carter, the Pentagon’s priorities will change: the US military will pay more and more attention not to the Middle East, but to the APR.

Now investigators interrogate eyewitnesses and withdraw records from surveillance cameras.

The motives of the criminals are not installed. But the FBI said they did not consider this incident a terrorist attack. “This is a common act of street violence in New Orleans,” said Mary Beth Romig, a local office spokeswoman for the Bureau.

According to the latest data, ten men, seven women, a ten-year-old boy and a ten-year-old girl were injured as a result of the shooting.

"Russians are coming ... They will tear us ..." Richard Milne (Financial Times; source abbr. translation - "Inopressa") writes that Sweden is very concerned about the mockery of Russia over its super-soldiers.

“To the music of“ ABBA ”, against the background of pumped-up men and girls in mini-skirts an officer of the Swedish army sings:“ Mamma mia! The Russians are coming ... They will tear us, seven or three, like a year ago in hockey. ”


This video, which appeared on Russian television, the author notes, is a parody. But the problems that he makes fun of, no longer amuse the Swedes.

On Good Friday, two Russian bomber, accompanied by four fighters, flew close to the Swedish border - during the training bombardment. Not a single Swedish fighter rose to the air in alarm ... But the military believes that the Russians were staging the bombing of Stockholm.

    “From the very beginning, the Russian strategy coincided with the strategy of the Assad regime: to tighten the conflict to such an extent that the jihadists will play the most important role on the opposite side, and then fit it into the context of the global fight against terrorism.”

    That is, at first the dandelion boys walked there, and now the jihadists have pulled themselves up?

      Quote: Vladimirets
      “From the very beginning, the Russian strategy coincided with the strategy of the Assad regime:
      And they could not really oppose it, now they are thinking, what to do next? And the famous Kremlin pragmatism, backed by a multimillion-dollar contract for the supply of Russian weapons to Syria, hovers over all this. The roles in this trio have been distributed long ago and, it seems, firmly. But the pattern of this foreign policy dance has become more and more confusing lately. over the year, since Moscow in the early XNUMXs concluded an agreement with Damascus for the supply of strategic weapons. As soon as the Kremlin feels a threat to its status as a superpower in the Middle East, a document is being developed, the world has the impression that Russian missiles and fighters are about to flood Syria. And this time everything repeated exactly. The Wall Street Journal claims to have called Washington urgently from Jerusalem late last week. Assad is either getting ready, or has already begun to transfer money to Russia as part of the implementation of the same contract! The White House said it was disappointed, the British prime minister arrived in Sochi to convince the Russian president personally, Benjamin Netanyahu flies to talk with Putin in the coming days, as soon as the parties agree on a protocol. It is not known for certain whether Bashar al-Assad has already managed to call Vladimir Putin, however, according to the laws of the genre, they have clearly talked. According to political analysts, Vladimir Putin is extremely pragmatic: he considers all the proposals and chooses the best. So far, the Kremlin’s position is still saving for Bashar al-Assad: Moscow will not allow a repeat of the Libyan scenario. As long as Assad rules in Damascus, Russia's position as a superpower in the Middle East is stable. And the Syrian president still guarantees Russia the preservation of its high status in the Middle East region - as long as he, Assad, remains in his chair. Bashar al-Assad cannot offer more to Vladimir Putin. Says Nakhman Shay, Knesset deputy, member of the parliamentary commission on foreign affairs and defense: “Assad’s regime will fall, sooner or later. I think Putin is looking to the future and is thinking which step he should take now. Is Assad right to make such an expensive present. Putin understands that Israel has a strong position in the Middle East, Israel is a significant player in the region, Moscow does not want to bring the matter to a conflict with Israel - neither armed nor diplomatic. ”Political scientist Zeev Khanin suggests that this time Benjamin Netanyahu is taking to Sochi something more than just another request to postpone the delivery of aircraft and missiles to Assad. And even more than the old formula “we are for you - tourism, gas and nanotechnology, and you are hiding the Syrian contract in the farthest box of the presidential table”. This time, Netanyahu offers Putin a new role: not an antagonist to the West in the Middle East, but a leading partner in a regional settlement. Moreover, not only on the Syrian front, but also in the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. The outcome of Netanyahu’s hasty visit to Sochi could be this: Russian weapons will again miraculously linger on their way to Syria for several months. And the mysterious bombing of Syrian targets from the air, if they do not stop, will never develop into something more serious. The main question is whether Vladimir Putin will accept the tempting offer of the West to become an opponent - the partner remains unanswered. The Kremlin will choose one partner out of two in this tango, or strange dances will continue - time will tell. Http://www.zman.com/news/2013/05/12/150806.html

      Syrian army freed eight settlements in the province of Hama



      The command of the Syrian army announced the release on Saturday of eight settlements in the province of Hama. The operations to liquidate the militants' shelters were prepared for two weeks, the last of them were destroyed on May 11.

      During the fighting, many vehicles with machine guns mounted on them were destroyed, improvised explosive devices were neutralized, dozens of members of bandit formations were eliminated, a large number of weapons and ammunition were confiscated, SANA reports.

      Security has been fully restored in the villages of Khattab, al-Qassabiya, Tal-Hassan, Zur-Jaydid, Zur al-Masalek, Zur al-Nasiriya, Zur Abu-Zeid and Zur al-Assi. On the road between the cities of Helfaya and Taibet al-Imam, 27 IEDs were discovered and neutralized at once. Jabhat al-Nusra militants suffered significant losses in the city of Helfaya.

      Official sources in the command of the Syrian armed forces have denied information spread by the Arab media that the militants took control of the village of Abel in the province of Homs. According to the Syrian military, Abel was released from gangs on April 18. On May 11, militants tried to enter the village, but all their attacks were repelled.

      The Syrian army completely took control of the Damascus-Deraa highway



      On Saturday, May 11, units of the Syrian army destroyed several militant groups at once along the international highway Damascus - Amman (Jordan) and took control of this strategic route from Damascus to Deraa.

      In April of this year, government forces launched an offensive against the gangs of the SSA and the Islamists in the province of Deraa. The main hostilities took place in the city of Khirbet Ghazale, directly adjacent to the Damascus - Amman highway. Militants periodically made sorties and attacked military transports along the road.

      By May 10, a significant part of the Islamist group in Khirbet Ghazal was defeated. The gangs are thrown from the western parts of the city to the east and now can not fire at the highway. Militants suffered heavy losses to the west of the highway - in the cities of Sheikh Miskin, Ibta, Dail.

      On May 11, Guard units liberated settlements along the Damascus-Amman highway in the southern suburbs of the Syrian capital. Car traffic between Damascus and Deraa is now fully restored. According to the SANA agency, during the military operations two leaders of the gangs were destroyed: a citizen of Saudi Arabia, Omar al-Shammari, and a citizen of Kuwait, Mahmoud al-Mteyri.

      Islamist gangs from Jabhat al-Nusra still remain in the suburbs of Deraa Naima and Sayda, located on both sides of the international highway. Mopping-up operations are currently underway, after which the militant group controlling the border checkpoint between Syria and Jordan will be blocked.

      The Syrian army destroyed the Islamist group near the city of Baniyas



      Units of the Syrian army, after four days of stubborn armed resistance from the militants, completely eliminated the Islamist group near the city of Baniyas in the north of the province of Tartus. Lebanese TV channel "Al-Mayadin" reported on the eve of the restoration of security in the suburbs of the port city.

      Islamist gangs from Jabhat al-Nusra and other "brigades" tried to seize the suburbs of Baniyas Ras al-Naba and Al-Bayda about a week ago. The militants set up strongholds in these settlements, began to conduct raids on the homes of local residents in search of "shabih" and other supporters of the Syrian authorities.

      On May 6, an operation of government troops began to eliminate Islamist bandit groups in the suburbs of Baniyas. First, Al-Bayda was cleared. The so-called Syrian opposition has announced the "massacre" in Baida, allegedly by the Syrian military. The information turned out to be false and was not confirmed by any of the world's media.

      In fact, on the outskirts of the villages of Al-Bayda and Ras al-Naba, fierce battles were fought with the use of heavy weapons from both sides. The militants of the Islamist "brigades" used artillery, missiles and armored vehicles. The villagers fled to Baniyas. The leaders of the gangs said that the government forces staged a "massacre of the Sunnis" and therefore the residents were forced to flee "under the protection of the soldiers of Allah."

      On May 9, when the main part of the Islamist bandit groups was defeated, the leaders of the "At-Tawhid brigade", "Jabhat al-Nusra", "Ahrar al-Sham" and others announced "an invasion of retribution for the death of the Sunnis." However, the "invasion" did not take place. The next day, May 10, the remnants of the defeated bandit formations were driven out of the province.

      Iraqi Authorities Support Tribes That Will Fight Al Qaeda



      In connection with the attempts of extremists to drag Iraq into a civil war, the country's authorities and the military command of the armed forces decided to resort to the help of the people themselves. This is logical, since most extremists are Sunnis, and more than half of the country's population are Shiites.

      The Iraqi Defense Ministry announced on May 11 that those tribes that will fight back the militants of Jabhat al-Nusra and other groups associated with al-Qaeda will definitely receive support.

      Government officials also announced their intention to support the tribes in Ramadi and the upper Euphrates, who have already decided to repulse al-Qaeda militants trying to organize armed provocations here. Resource al-shorfa notes that the help will be "both moral and material", but what exactly it will be does not say.

      Armed provocations in Iraq continue. On Saturday, May 11, a suicide bomber blew up a fuel tank in the city of Tikrit. Three people were killed, about 20 were injured.

      On the same day, there was a clash between al-Qaeda militants and the Iraqi military. In Baji, north of Tikrit, militants attacked military barracks. During the battle, three attackers were killed, two soldiers were killed.

      Iraqi intelligence services arrest 25 al-Qaeda members

      Syrian TV channel Al-Ikhbariya reported that Iraqi intelligence services arrested today 25 members of the local branch of the terrorist organization Al-Qaeda.

      According to the TV channel, two of the detainees are accused of smuggling weapons and ammunition to militants into Syria. Two other members of the organization ran a network of agents recruiting terrorists to participate in Syrian events on the side of al-Qaeda armed groups.

      The defeat of the "Tatar Brigade". Summary of recent events from Syria

      According to a correspondent from Syria, Rinat Akhmetzyanov: the Syrian army continues to clean the streets of the city of Khirbet Gazalah from militants ...



      Earlier, army units managed to squeeze Wahhabis out of this strategically important settlement in the south of the country. As a senior Syrian army officer told our correspondent, the occupation of the city by government forces was preceded by a bloody shootout between two gangs - the reason for the conflict was that the Wahhabis-expropriators didn’t trivially divide the loot. As a result of the shootout in the city, several militants died, several dozen bandits were injured. Most of the militants remained neutral during this armed conflict, but the very fact of civil strife caused discontent among many field commanders. After that, about a thousand militants of the so-called "democratic opposition" left Khirbet Ghazalah. The liberation of the city was preceded by rocket and artillery attacks on barricades arranged by militants. The Wahhabis who remained to defend the city suffered heavy losses - the streets of the village were literally dotted with the corpses of militants. Islamists are almost completely driven out of this city in the province of Daraa.

      A highway leads to Jordan through this city. Thanks to the liberation of the city, ways are open for both delivering food to civilians and military units. Currently, the army is carrying out the destruction of gangs along the Sheikh-Miskin-Daraa-Umm al-Miyadin line in the Syrian-Jordanian border.

      Since the beginning of this week, government troops have been successful in other areas. Prevented an attempt by militants to penetrate the previously liberated Darayu. In the province of Homs near the border with Lebanon, a large gang group was surrounded and destroyed, several gangs were squeezed into Lebanon. In the province of Damascus in the village of Harasta, the army unit liquidated the gangs that had previously split from the so-called “Tatar brigade” of the Islamists and penetrated into this settlement from the south.

      In the province of Hama, residents of the village of Al-Sheh Hadid detained the Wahhabis, who entered the village and took food and clothing from the residents. Despite the fact that the militants were armed, the inhabitants of the village themselves detained five bandits and held them until the arrival of the army unit.

      The army carried out a number of successful operations to liberate several rural settlements in different provinces.

      On May 6 and 7, in the Aleppo province, large-scale gangs Kataib Mukhajirin, which the Syrian military called the Tatar Brigade or the Chechen Brigade, suffered heavy losses. The Kataib Mukhadzhirin brigade consists mainly of radical Islamists (Wahhabis and members of the Hizb-ut-Tahrir party) who arrived in Syria from the territories of the North Caucasus, Tatarstan and Central Asian countries. The released hostages held by members of the gang reported that the Tatar Brigade had lost more than 60% of its personnel these days.

        I’ve read comments from ordinary people from the USA and other countries on YouTube to videos about Russian weapons. So, the vast majority of comments, for example on Borea, or touching, such as what a good technique, class, etc. Or they write about US imperialism and about everything you wrote too. The conclusions from everything are simple - ordinary people in all countries perceive almost the same way. And in the West, often these people are even less aggressive towards us than we can (GENERALLY IF) towards them. This is where it is necessary to share, understanding that very many in the West are in solidarity with us, just as against past and current wars. As they once fought against the war in Vietnam, now they are first of all hoped that they would be able to massively pressure elites in their countries. I do not mean about you if that, but I wanted to say for everyone that somewhere in their critical rhetoric all this must be borne in mind and emphasized to share the criticism of any country as a whole and its establishment. After all, in Europe, for ordinary citizens, there has not been such unemployment and decline in history, and the pro-Atlantic elites set by the United States are living on themselves and are pursuing a policy that is against the citizens of these countries, against the interests of the whole world. It is not in vain that under the USSR, the stake was made precisely on the class struggle, and not on the basis of any other ideologies. This made it possible to find masses of supporters in other countries and thereby act from within. Now, it seems to me that the situation for this is favorable both in Europe and in the USA ...

      Near the border with Syria, a Turkish fighter fell



      Not far from the Syrian border, in an inaccessible wooded area, a Turkish F-16 fighter fell. Earlier communication with the plane was lost.

      The pilot managed to eject. The reasons for the incident are not yet known. According to local media reports, the crash could have occurred as a result of technical problems, Interfax notes.

      F-16 performed a service flight over the Amanos mountain range, where the disaster occurred. The immediate place of the fall can be located about 20-25 kilometers from the nearest line of the Turkish-Syrian border and not far from the borders of Hatay and Gaziantep provinces. Search and rescue operations are already underway in the area.

Putin also presented Cameron with a souvenir: 42-year-old Armenian cognac. At the same time, the Russian president noted that a similar cognac Joseph Stalin presented to Winston Churchill in 1945 at the Yalta conference of the leaders of the Allied Powers. According to the BBC, Cameron replied that he would keep the bottle as a keepsake.

        Greetings to the wise Kaa hi ! I’ll fix it a little bit on cognac (because you are an amateur and appreciate this wonderful drink) No one created special cognacs for Sir Churchill from all Armenian cognacs; he especially appreciated the fifty-degree “Dvin” cognac, which was created specifically for Yalta Conference by order of comrade Stalin. After Stalin offered Winston Churchill a glass of Armenian cognac, the British Prime Minister became a fan of this drink. The supplies of this cognac to Sir Churchill were also personally controlled by Stalin. In 1949, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of Winston Churchill, Stalin sent 75 bottles of Dvin brandy. Churchill liked the gift, as evidenced by the response phrase he said: “What a pity that I was not 100 years old.” It is known that Churchill drank a bottle of Dvin 50-degree cognac daily. Once, the prime minister discovered that Dvin had lost its former taste. He expressed his displeasure with Stalin. It turned out that the master Margar Sedrakyan, who was engaged in blending “Dvina”, was exiled to Siberia. He was returned, restored to the party. Churchill began to receive his beloved Dvin again, and Sedrakyan was awarded the title Hero of Socialist Labor. So cognac saved a person’s life. The Dvin brandy has an endurance of 10 years. This is a kind of brandy cognac, the approximate cost of 2000 per bottle of 0,7 liters. It is made from selected cognac spirits on average 10 year old, with a strength of 50 degrees and a sugar content of 0,7%. Despite the high strength, cognac is drunk easily, because it harmoniously combines a delicate aroma, a rich bouquet and a pleasant taste. The name is a patriotic tribute to the medieval capital of Armenia - Dvina. Dvin is a large craft and trading city built in 335.

          Good afternoon! I will not argue, the British and the Americans, they assure that this did not happen at all, the Georgians boast, they say the cognac was Georgian - but the fact is the fact, Cameron received a gift with a hint, like after the creation of the atomic bomb in the USSR, Stalin still did not forget Churchill , although he already spoke from an anti-Soviet position: “In 1949, on the occasion of Winston Churchill’s 75th birthday, Stalin sent 75 bottles of Dvin cognac. Churchill liked the gift, as evidenced by his reply phrase:“ What a pity that I was not 100 years "http://cognacguide.ru/forum/topic104.html Then a question for connoisseurs, what kind of cognac did Churchill like during his visit to Moscow in 1942? His secretary writes in his memoirs that he got drunk as a lord and disappeared into in the most pleasing mood, after which he began to receive "parcels" from the USSR ... in response he again (after a pause with PQ -17) began escorting the northern convoys. ”What does life-giving cognac do! drinks

                Ararat Brandy Factory in Belarus has opened a production line. This is reported by TVR and recalls that two years ago during a visit to Yerevan, during a visit to the cognac factory, the President of Belarus suggested starting production of cognac in Minsk.
                The joint venture, which has been operating since July 10, 2012, was created by agreement between the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko and the owner of the plant is Gagik Tsarukyan-the second Brandy Factory in Armenia, the quality is the same high

            Alas ... there is one trick that distinguishes real cognac from crafts. And before using this trick, the Belarusians are still 70 years old to do very mediocre garbage, not to say more rudely. I also deeply doubt that Tsarukyan has this irreplaceable thing. Alas, since the Soviet "winemakers" made a truly great discovery - that oak barrels for cognac are an excess and a relic, it is enough to throw a package of oak veneer into a stainless barrel ... In general, from this moment cognacs became a rarity, and shmurdyak a beautiful label is the norm ...

        He was certainly our one of the most fierce enemies, but he was an interesting person. He said: “In my youth, I made it a rule not to drink a drop of alcohol until dinner. Now that I'm not young, I keep the rule not to drink a drop of alcohol until breakfast "and" I always followed the rule: don't run if you can stand; don't stand if you can sit; don't sit if you can lie.

        My wife and I tried to have breakfast together two or three times in 40 years of our life together, but it turned out to be so unpleasant that I had to stop it. ”
        I drank beer at lunch, instead of tea - whiskey with soda (though very diluted). However, he had a special relationship with coffee. He said: “Coffee is a very personal drink. It, like cognac, cannot be drunk in circles! ”
        In 1915, he wrote to his brother from Ho Jack's farm, where he spent the summer that he had everything he needed for life: “A hot bath, cold champagne, fresh peas and old cognac.”

    On Good Friday, two Russian bomber, accompanied by four fighters, flew close to the Swedish border - during the training bombardment. Not a single Swedish fighter rose to the air in alarm ... But the military believes that the Russians were staging the bombing of Stockholm.

    The pilots seemed to be on Friday prayers.

      And they are fatalists. We received a report on the approach of planes, remembered that the Russians had Good Friday, the most mournful day of the year, that they wandered around - it is unknown, waved their hands - and went to Allah to ask for help, now they are probably glad that everything worked out, so that we are waiting for an increase in the number of Muslims in Scandinavia - such a miracle, as an example ... laughing

        the fact is that they don’t fly up, and if they fly up, or our interceptor takes off, then the c300 division takes them in the sight (not to mention the fact that our radars still see them over Sweden).

    The T-34 ran into an Opel. This is probably from old memory, once and as the popular wisdom says "watch out for a military driver from all sides", two. And Syria has to sell / donate the S-300 for a long time, and bring them on a ship to a gift box with bows so that everyone can see, otherwise I have not heard something for a long time and have not seen epileptic fits among liberals about the "revival of the evil empire."

          And you don't have to be ill. Normal Buddhists have already condemned this fact, and not for the first time. "The spiritual leader of Tibet in exile, the Dalai Lama, condemned the attacks by Buddhist monks on Muslims in Myanmar on Tuesday, calling murders in the name of religion" unthinkable. " The roots of this seemingly inter-religious conflict are actually political, not spiritual, the head of all Buddhists in the world said when speaking at the University of Maryland at the beginning of his tour of the United States, WordYou reports.
          “Indeed, killing people in the name of religion is unthinkable, but even Buddhists are participating in Burma these days,” said the former Myanmar Dalai Lama after giving his lecture “Towards Peace through Compassion: Uniting a Multiconfessional World” as part of a series of annual university lectures in honor of Anwar Sadat.
          “I think it’s very sad,” Reuters quoted the religious leader as saying.
          The attacks on the Muslim minority of Myanmar, which began after the semi-civilian government replaced the ruling half-century military junta in March 2011, became noticeably more frequent last summer.
          Since then, hundreds of Muslims have died, thousands have become refugees. Radical Buddhist monks took an active part in the killings, arson of houses, mosques, and Muslim-owned stores.
          In addition, Buddhist worshipers organized demonstrations and distributed propaganda materials inciting hatred for Islamic followers in the country. Http://sunnapress.com/news/worldnews/4431-dalaj-lama-osudil-napaden

    And what kind of authority is this - "Freedom House" ???? And who appointed her to evaluate anything in general and Russia in particular ???? If we consider the propaganda of fagots and the removal of children from families on the basis of denunciations of adolescents as freedom - why do we need such freedom. Actually, our people have a proverb: "Do not go with your charter to a foreign monastery," and so, you are fucking yourself in Europe ..., that is, evaluate, and we ourselves will figure it out anyway. tongue

      Putin continues to hunt for civil society organizations

      In recent weeks, one of the most destructive repressive measures taken by Putin in the past 10 years has been implemented, The Washington Post claims in an editorial. "At Putin's orders, hundreds of civil society organizations across the country, whether they protect migrants, the environment or human rights, have become the target of 'inspections' under the new law," the newspaper explains.

      If this "witch hunt" continues, many organizations will be forced to close, warns the publication.

      The NGO law, which came into force on November 21, provides a "broad and vague" definition of "political activity." This is a loophole that can be used to arbitrarily attack almost any organization, the newspaper said.

      For their part, NPOs refuse to register as "foreign agents", since under Stalin the term was used to discredit people.

      "The purpose of inspections is to intimidate NGOs and disrupt their programs. Putin, in a fit of anti-Americanism, expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that these organizations receive money from abroad, but ignored the good they do with these funds: they help people whom Putin's government leaves without attention, protect those who are not protected by the state, "the article says. In the opinion of the newspaper, the point is that "Putin's authoritarian rule", like the former Soviet regime, does not allow civil society to play any role in life.

      Elena Panfilova of Transparency International recently wrote that NPOs have no choice: punishment or self-destruction. She fears that by the end of autumn in Russia there will not be a single public organization.

    On Good Friday, two Russian bombers, accompanied by four fighters, flew close to the Swedish border - during a training bombardment. Not a single Swedish fighter took off on alert ...

    Oh no no no. Israel is afraid to the extent that it arranges air strikes, and Damascus is to blame for this. And Turkey is there too. Or maybe it's not Damascus that is to blame, but just a provocation on the part of Ankara and the Jews. Gentlemen of Turkish politics, and all the "friends" of Syria, as if the T-34 did not run over you, as on ёpel.

    Sweden is afraid of Russian laughter over Swedish soldiers. Laughter, laughter, what do the Swedes want? You will officially declare neutrality in any situation of relations between NATO and Russia, express a friendly attitude and reduce the army - and now we will stop laughing.

      Interestingly, and not ashamed of the Swedes after this video, that their army (and not only it) is rightfully ridiculed in an unconventional orientation, while they consider it advanced relations.

    And the news that warmed my soul most of all: "Figures from the Russian art group Voina hung a banner on Tower Bridge in London ... The action lasted a few seconds and was interrupted by the London police ...".
    All the same justice, though little by little, but triumphs: the shit mo, which the British have cultivated for centuries in all corners of the planet, is beginning to return to its ideological homeland. I hope that this happy moment will come when England chokes on this shit.
    Well, the everyday comment: the fact that in Russia there are repressions against freedom-loving individuals, in England this is the rule of law.

    Bed for Bibi. At the time of the Israeli Prime Minister’s flight from Tel Aviv to London, a double bed was installed on his plane at a cost of 138 thousand dollars.
    After the news appeared in the Israeli media, 10 of thousands of Israelis took to the streets across the country to demonstrate against the harsh austerity measures taken by the government of the Jewish state.
    I liked it very much, only by such actions can the government be respected by its people.

    this is how they relate to VV Putin in Syria.
    in my opinion, comments are unnecessary, he is more than anyone revered and this is an eloquent fact !!!

    iliq, a normal but mistaken person would have already burned out of shame or at least thought about his views, but you, like a stubborn ram, are oppressing your line. Well, who are you after that? Do a lot of masters bow for your pearls? You are a traitor. And it doesn’t matter where you live in Russia or in Western Europe, you are a traitor to human values ​​and people like you have always lost and will lose disputes, battles, wars. You are already defeated just do not understand this. I no longer appeal to you iliq personally, but to people like you. You have already LOSED this future war!

    An interesting version of the recent Israeli raid on Syria.

    Israel, Iran and Hezbollah Rescue Assad
    Abdul Kader Saleh, the commander of the Tawhid division, the rebel Syrian militia, claims that Israeli air strikes in Damascus were aimed at preventing Assad’s weapons from being captured by rebels, Turkish newspaper Zaman reported.

    He said that Bashar al-Assad and his regime "have essentially already been defeated and that Iran and Hezbollah, with the support of Israel, are preventing its fall."

    "The Syrian opposition was on the verge of seizing Assad's arms depots, and that is why Israel attacked facilities in Syria," Saleh said.

    "There were senior officers among the Syrian army who planned to defect and transfer weapons to the opposition, in particular air defense systems and heavy artillery. Israel bombed targets for fear that weapons would fall into the hands of the opposition. This assault was in support of Assad."

    Saleh added that Israel is working with Hezbollah and Iran to prevent the overthrow of Assad "who has defended Israel's borders for over 40 years." He hinted that Israel is turning a blind eye to Hezbollah's activities.

    The rebel commander denied claims that the rebels used chemical weapons in Syria and said that it was Assad's forces that used chemical weapons on the outskirts of Damascus, in Homs and Aleppo. “These attacks prove that the regime is living out its last days,” he said.

    Saleh suggested that Assad wants to create an Alawite state in the coastal zone of Syria after losing control of most of Syria.

    "We will not allow this. Sunni society will not allow this. This is why Assad's forces began to carry out ethnic cleansing in the area. The massacre in Banias is one of the proofs of these efforts."

    Barbarians and looters. As the correspondent reported. ITAR-TASS Dmitry Zelenin, citing SANA, opposition extremists attacked the ancient Orthodox monastery of Elijah the Prophet in the vicinity of El Quseir. According to the rector of the monastery, Gadir Ibrahim, the militants took out church utensils, blew up the bell tower, destroyed the altar and font. They demolished the statue of the Old Testament prophet, revered in Syria by both Christians and Muslims.

    The hegumen recalled that the monastery, which is already one and a half thousand years old, is under state protection.

    hmm, Muslims cannot tolerate such sacrilege. Oh and get the lyuli separatists bully
