Opponents of Bashar al-Assad will have to strengthen. The US blames it on Russia

61

In the capital of Qatar, Doha, there was a meeting of the group "Friends of Syria" - a coalition of states that support the overthrow of the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Its participants decided to strengthen the assistance of the opposition in order to quickly achieve a breakthrough in the confrontation with Damascus. And US Secretary of State John Do Kerry, who visited Doha, made the most drastic statement about the Russian Federation during the entire conflict. He first publicly doubted Moscow’s commitment to a Syrian settlement and blamed her for coming to Syria to help Bashar Assad of Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah group.


The illusions that Russia and its G8 partners are able, at least in general terms, to coordinate their position on Syria, existed only a few days after the G-8 summit. US Secretary of State John Kerry, who participated in the Doha meeting, who, together with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, initiated a new peace conference on Syria (Geneva-2), actually placed the main blame on Moscow for the continuation of the confrontation in Syria. “Russia is arming Syria. Therefore, although Russia seeks, ostensibly, seeks a political solution, it provides Assad with the opportunity to join forces with both Iranians and Hezbollah to wage a more intense war against their own people,” said Kerry. Parrying the traditional reproach of Moscow that the Friends of Syria, for their part, are arming the opposition, the US Secretary of State did not deny this, but called such actions to be in the interests of the Syrian people. "The opposition has made it clear that it is ready to take protection of the entire population of Syria, while Assad is waging war against the majority of the inhabitants of Syria," he explained.

The main task of the "Friends of Syria" was formulated by the Premier and Foreign Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad Bin Jasim Al-Thani: "Only moral support is not enough, to achieve justice, strength is needed." According to the Friends, the settlement in Syria should look like this: at the first stage, it is necessary to achieve a radical change in the military confrontation in favor of the opposition as soon as possible, and then hold a Geneva-2 conference. With such a scenario, the conditions at a peace conference would be dictated by the opposition and the Geneva-2 would be reduced to a discussion of the conditions for the surrender of the regime. The final communiqué adopted in Doha emphasizes that the Bashar Asad will not play any role in the transitional body to be created in Syria as a result of the peace talks.

Terms and volumes of deliveries weapons Syrian opposition has not been disclosed. At the Doha meeting, they did not accept a single plan, agreeing that each of the 11 countries would act on their own. According to the communiqué, henceforth, weapons of the opposition will be delivered centrally through the command of the Free Syrian Army led by General Salim Idris.

According to information from the ranks of the Syrian opposition, 5 from 11 "Syria's friends" are immediately ready to begin supplying weapons, the rest are ready to provide military-technical assistance at a later stage. Among the weapons that can get rebels, experts called anti-tank missiles and MANPADS.

The Doha conference finally divorced Russia and the United States together with other "friends of Syria" on opposite sides of the barricades in the Syrian conflict. Nevertheless, in Doha, Secretary of State Kerry made another ritual statement about the readiness to “work closely with Russia” to achieve peace in Syria. Tomorrow in Geneva, the tripartite consultations of the United States — Russia — UN should pass. Wendy Sherman, Deputy Secretary of State for Political Affairs, and Robert Ford, former ambassador to Syria, will represent the American side, the Russian deputy head of the Foreign Ministry, and the special envoy of the Russian president for the Middle East, Mikhail Bogdanov. As expected, they will hold talks with the UN special representative and the Arab League on Syria Lakhdar Brahimi, the results of which can be called the date of the "Geneva-2".

        "The opposition has made it clear that it is ready to take under the protection of the entire population of Syria, while Assad is waging a war against the majority of Syrian people," he explained.


        The best way to counter the fight should be the documents of the destroyed "most of the inhabitants of Syria", which must be reproduced on the international Internet. Especially on the websites of those countries from where these zalantsy got hold of. The scenes of "care" for the population of Syria by the aforementioned "defenders", together with their documents, will nullify any information provocations by the "friends of Syria".

      Syrian Kurdish forces try to break the blockade of Afrin



      The day before, on June 20, fighting intensified for the Kurdish Afrin (Ifrin) valley to the northwest of the city of Aleppo. In response to the shelling of Kurdish villages by militants, detachments of the "People's Defense Committees" (the armed wing of the Kurdish "Democratic Union Party") attacked the checkpoints set up by the Islamists near the city of Jindirez.

      As a result, the checkpoints were destroyed, the militants from "Jabhat al-Nusra" retreated to the south-west, losing four people killed and about ten wounded. On the same day, there were several local shootings in the area of ​​the city of Afrin.

      In late May, Islamists blocked roads from Afrin to Aleppo and to the Turkish border, thus cutting off supplies to the Kurdish region. The prices of food and other basic necessities began to rise rapidly. During this time, the detachments of the "People's Defense Committees" tried several times to break the blockade. With the start of the Syrian army's operation to liberate Aleppo, such attempts have become more frequent.

      The Kurds tried to negotiate with the FSA command to lift the blockade and exchange prisoners. On June 17, a truce was even concluded between the leadership of the Kurdish "Committees" and the FSA. However, the militants of the Islamist "brigades" associated with al-Qaeda do not obey the FSA and act at their own discretion.

      At their discretion, the Islamists have already taken several dozen residents of Kurdish villages hostage. Kurds are forced to do the same.

      Initially, the city of Afrin supported the "revolution" and temporarily became a transit base for the militants of the "free army". But when the Kurds realized what kind of "freedom" the militants were carrying to Syrian soil, most of them opposed the extremists.

      Islamists accuse Afrin of supporting the northwestern suburbs of Aleppo Nubbol and Zahra, controlled by government forces. Trucks with help for residents of these cities drive through the Kurdish region. In turn, the Kurds say that the militants are corrupt and pass food trucks through their checkpoints for a fee.

      In the Syrian province of Aleppo, the blockade of the Ming air base has been broken



      Early in the morning of June 21, the blockade of the Alawite militia broke through the blockade of the Ming airbase (Mineg) 30 kilometers north of Aleppo. Militiamen, with battles and under cover of the fire of army units, broke into the building of the command center of the airfield.

      After that, massive artillery strikes were inflicted on the militants chasing the militias. The Syrian Air Force inflicted several attacks on the positions of the gangs. Fierce battles continued for several hours along the perimeter of the military facility, as a result of which the airdrome blockade was partially broken.

      Only the Lebanese Al-Mayadin TV channel reported on the breakthrough of the blockade. Most likely, there was a temporary unblocking of the facility, since official Syrian sources have not yet said anything about this. However, even in this case, the airfield garrison received significant reinforcements, and the Jabhat al-Nusra and Jaysh Muhajirin bandits suffered losses.

      This month, the situation in the area of ​​the Ming airbase (Mineg) has changed several times. From June 5 to 11, militants made several attempts to storm the command center of the airfield. The fighting took place directly on the territory of the base, bandit pickups with machine guns and anti-aircraft guns moved along the runways. To shell the buildings of the command center, a tank was seized earlier by the Islamists.

      On the night of June 11 and the next day, the gangs were subjected to airstrikes and were driven back from the airfield, but the deblockade did not occur.

      Recall that the Ming airfield was surrounded by militants more than a year ago, but it was possible to block it only in 2013, when the so-called "Chechen brigade" ("Jaysh Mukhajirin wal-Ansar") of natives of the Russian North Caucasus took over the siege. Over the past three months, only 10 major assault attempts have been made. After the Syrian army launched an operation to liberate Aleppo, the situation at Ming airfield improved somewhat.

      Gangs are besieging several military bases throughout Syria. A similar situation has developed in the area of ​​the Queres aerodrome to the south-east of Aleppo. On June 18, Syrian army units unblocked the Abu al-Duhur airdrome in Idleb province.

      USA to leave about 700 Marines in Jordan


      US Marines on Exercise Eager Lion in Jordan

      The United States has decided on the size of its military presence on the Syrian-Jordanian border. President Barack Obama in a letter to Congress said that about 700 military personnel, f-16 fighters and Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems will remain in Jordan.

      Obama said the deployment of US infantry units was made "at the request of the Jordanian government, which fears the spread of the war into its territory," and also to "protect refugees," Reuters reports. The troops will remain in Jordan until "until the security situation is such that they (the military) are not needed there." "The deployment of these forces is dictated by the interests of the US national security," the American president said.

      US troops arrived in Jordan in June to take part in the Impatient Lion exercise, which has been held since the outbreak of the war in Syria. At the beginning of the exercise, the American administration said that it would leave the fighters and the Patritot air defense system "if the Jordanian authorities asked." Later it became known that the United States Marine Corps Special Forces units would remain in the country.

      The formal reason for the deployment of American troops and military equipment in Jordan is the use of chemical weapons in Syria (which the West blames exclusively on the Syrian government troops). In fact, the military contingent is left in case of a further deterioration in the situation of the "rebels" (if the United States decides that the bandit formations cannot win without the introduction of a "no-fly zone").

      The "no-fly zone" is viewed in the USA as the most undesirable development of the situation. At the moment, the stake is made on massive military assistance to militants in the provinces of Aleppo, Deraa and Damascus. Direct arms deliveries are already going from Turkey to Aleppo and from Jordan - near Damascus.

      Yes, 2013, the US military trained militants in Jordan. Since the spring of this year, they took over the partial operational leadership of gangs in Syria - in Jordan there is a group of military experts in the field of planning and organization of military operations, as well as representatives of the CIA.

      France delivered 16 tons of medicines to Syrian militants



      France made the largest supply of medicines to Syria for all the time supporting the armed opposition. 16 tons of medicines, medicines and equipment arrived on June 21 from Turkey to the Syrian province of Aleppo. Among the medicines are anti-inflammatory drugs, antibiotics, painkillers, bandages, antidotes against nerve gases.

      The delivery was carried out by the so-called "Syrian Medical Union" headquartered in Paris. According to official figures, the medicines were delivered to "one of the hospitals" from where they "will be distributed to those in need," Reuters reports.

      French officials say the aid is intended for civilians suffering from the fighting. In fact, the main recipient is the "Syrian Free Army" (FSA) bandit groups. "These drugs will cure several thousand people in about 20 medical centers throughout Syria, and especially in the north," said the French Foreign Ministry spokesman Philippe Laglio.

      Paris, following Washington, claims that government forces used chemical weapons against militants and civilians in the provinces of Damascus and Aleppo. That is why the presence of atropine and valium antidotes is declared in the supply of medicines.

      Italy will not supply weapons to Syrian militants


      Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino

      Italy will not supply weapons to Syrian militants. This was stated by Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino following the meeting of the “Friends of Syria” that ended in Doha. At the same time, Italians are ready to provide any other assistance to the “Syrian opposition”.

      The Italian Foreign Minister said that a clear understanding of exactly who will be given assistance is needed. “You need to understand who is in the opposition groups, how much they can be trusted and what influence these groups have on a particular territory,” Bonino noted.

      At the same time, the position of Italy remains the same - the Syrian conflict cannot be resolved by military means. “The only solution to the crisis is an international conference,” the Italian minister said.

      Recall that on June 22 during a meeting of “Friends of Syria,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said that Paris intends to supply the Syrian rebels with medicines to treat victims of the use of sarin gas.

      In reality, delivery has already been made on July 21st. 16 tons of medicines were delivered from Turkey to the Syrian province of Aleppo. The delivery was carried out on behalf of the so-called "Syrian Medical Union", which is headquartered in Paris.

      Theme of the use of chemical. weapons are now becoming an indulgence for Western countries, which themselves have convinced themselves that the Syrian army used chemical weapons. Now, any action is accompanied by ritual phrases about helping victims of the use of gases.

      Meanwhile, no evidence has been provided of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian army. The head of the UN Commission on the investigation of possible human rights violations in Syria, Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, said that the organization does not have the necessary evidence in order to blame one of the parties to the Syrian conflict.

      Friends of Syria agreed to provide military assistance to the opposition



      During the meeting in Doha, the foreign ministers of the countries-members of the Friends of Syria group agreed to take the necessary measures in a short time to increase assistance to the Syrian opposition, including the military. Thus, Friends of Syria intend to "change the balance of power in favor of the opposition" in this country.

      Following the meeting in Doha, in which, in particular, US Secretary of State John Kerry took part, it was decided to supply the opposition with equipment and materials "at their own discretion." The supplies will be carried out through the high command of the SSA, RIA Novosti reports.

      The military solution to the Syrian conflict is supported by the organizer of the meeting, Prime Minister of Qatar Hamad bin Jasem Al Thani. According to him, although it was decided to hold a conference on the political settlement of the Geneva-2 conflict, it is necessary to achieve a balance of power. Therefore, "Friends of Syria" and agreed to provide assistance to the opposition, especially its armed wing, said the Prime Minister of Qatar.

      Sheikh Hamad believes that strengthening the military potential of the Syrian opposition will force the government to negotiate, the result of which will be the resignation of Bashar al-Assad and his associates.

      In turn, US Secretary of State John Kerry is confident that the Syrian conflict has no military solution, the problem must be resolved by a political settlement.

      According to the sky news arabia TV channel, which cites diplomatic sources, even before the conference in Doha, information appeared about the disagreements in the Friends of Syria group. Some Arab countries offered to supply the opposition with heavy military equipment, which was not supported by the foreign ministries of Western states. Two of the 11 countries of the group have ruled out the supply of weapons to the Syrian opposition altogether, the channel said.

      Meanwhile, without waiting for the outcome of the conference, the Syrian opposition said it had already received the first batch of weapons, and this, they said, would help turn the tide in the conflict. Oppositionists did not report information about the weapon and its suppliers.

      Earlier, militants claimed that they needed shells for portable anti-aircraft systems, armor-piercing shells, armored vehicles, grenade launchers, body armor, gas masks and communications equipment. Suppliers of weapons are allegedly Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

      According to Reuters, Saudi Arabia, which began delivering anti-aircraft missiles to militants two months ago, has accelerated the supply of modern weapons. Agency sources say that over the past week, shipments have increased dramatically.

      The Friends of Syria Group was created by a number of Arab and Western countries supporting the resignation of Bashar al-Assad. Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and France play the leading roles in this group. The coalition was formed on November 11, 2012 in Doha.

      Representatives of Britain, Italy, Germany, France, USA, UAE, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan participated in the conference of "Friends of Syria".

      Three attacks occurred in Damascus in one day


      Wounded in Mezze-86

      Three major terrorist attacks took place in Syrian Damascus in one day. In the morning at 08:45 local time, three suicide bombers blew themselves up at the entrance to a police station in the Rukn al-Din district near the Ibn al-Amid bakeries.

      As a result of the explosions, 5 people died, another 9 were injured, the agency SANA reports. Then at 09:30 in the area of ​​Bab Al-Musalla, three more suicide bombers tried to enter the criminal security center, but were killed by security. Their suicide belts were neutralized.

      According to Western news agencies, at least two explosions thundered in the area of ​​Bab Al-Musalla. Militants of Islamist gangs announced mortar shelling of the police building. Official sources report several injured and substantial material damage.

      On the same day, a car bomb exploded in the Mezze-86 area. As a result, 3 people died, including a three-year-old child. Seven people (including two children) were injured of varying severity and were taken to the Al-Muasat hospital.

      This is not the first terrorist attack in the Mezze-86 area. The largest terrorist attacks occurred here on November 5, 2012 and December 6, 2012.

      The Syrian security forces reported that, according to operational data, Islamists from the Jabhat al-Nusra group are behind the attacks. On the resources under their control, the extremists said that in Damascus "two Shabiha bases were attacked," as a result of which "a large number of Shabiha and Hezbollah militants were killed."

      Syrian army repels an attempt by militants to seize the western regions of Aleppo



      On June 22-23, Islamist and FSA gangs tried to organize a series of counterattacks against the positions of the Syrian army in Aleppo. The beginning of the "battle of al-Qadesiya" was announced for the western areas of the city, which until now were under the confident control of government forces.

      On the morning of June 22, bandits armed with anti-aircraft guns, large-caliber machine guns and other heavy weapons attacked army checkpoints and buildings that, according to the bandits, are "command centers of regime forces" in the western regions of Al-Rashidin and Khaleb al-Jadid (New Aleppo).

      During fierce exchanges of fire, the militants were driven back, but they managed to gain a foothold on the outskirts of the Al-Rashidin area, which is essentially a "private sector" in the west and south-west of Aleppo. The militants failed to capture the urban area of ​​al-Jadid, although it was the main target of the attacks.

      Actions in the western regions of Aleppo were supported by Islamists in the city center and in the northwestern suburbs. The next day, June 23, fighting intensified in all areas occupied by militants - al-Rashidin, al-Leramun, al-Kallasa, Bustan al-Qasr, Sahur, Masaken Hanano.

      The army reinforcements brought into the city with the attached armored vehicles localized combat activity in the "old" conflict zones, preventing the militants from spreading hostilities throughout the city. The bandits' "offensive" into the western regions was also unsuccessful.

      By Sunday evening, the gangs remained virtually in the same positions as before the start of the "battle of al-Qadesiya". Islamists have clandestine strongholds in Al-Rashidin, Khan al-Assal, Al-Mansur. During the day, an attempt by bandit groups to break through to the Al-Wafaa and al-Zahraa areas from the al-Leramun area was repulsed.

      In the relatively calm western regions of Aleppo, under the cover of the Syrian army, a large number of refugees from the central and eastern regions of the city, captured by militants, were concentrated. Wanting to divert the attention of government forces from the north-western suburbs, gangs are going to aggravate the confrontation in Aleppo itself.

Its participants decided to increase assistance to the opposition in order to achieve a turning point in the confrontation with Damascus as soon as possible.

    The United States, Western countries and Gulf puppets decided to aggravate the situation in Syria. Without a U.S. command, their puppets did not dare to openly arm the opposition in Syria. I think that the Russian leadership has calculated this option and will find an adequate answer.

      But look at China. I have been saying for a long time that China and the States are more on the way than with us, and all this "confrontation" with China is nothing more than PR. Cheap production in China, but the problem with resources. Where are our resources? Look at the map. Correctly north of China and there are few people. So the seizure of Siberia by China will begin with an approving nod from the US (God forbid). But you need to prepare for the worst.

    There is a positive side to this, which you need to take advantage of, and not play in public like with the S-300. If we take advantage of the moment correctly, then the "quarrel" on many issues, not only over Syria, can turn out to be in our hands and become a reason for solving many issues (drugs, radical Islam, as well as traitors who from time to time go to suck the American ambassador etc.), which in a given period of time do not lend themselves to our so-called partners.

    I wonder what our actions will be if the United States decides to send troops into Syria? keep silent? - lose face. Condemn and make angry statements? they wanted to sneeze. Help with weapons? Assad alone does not. Send in your troops? This is the third world. My opinion is that troops (peacekeepers) should be introduced first - let them think what to do. Worse is not to wait and catch up. It’s time to seize the initiative, otherwise we are only responding. Although Putin is a cunning peasant, I think there is more than one ace hidden in his sleeve.

      They will definitely not enter the troops. Iraq, Afghanistan is still remembered. In any case, there will be losses, and this will further fuel the situation with the states themselves. The maximum that they are capable of is to be popular with tomahawks. And then with an eye to the crisis. Each tomahawk is nearly $ 1,5 million. Now the minke whales do not shuffle as before. Especially in Syria you will not rob like in Iraq. Yes, they would not have entered Iraq. They would have armed the opponents of Saddam (and there were plenty of them) according to the Libyan scenario. It’s just that Bush didn’t have enough brains.

    The Doha conference finally separated Russia and the United States along with other "friends of Syria" on opposite sides of the barricades in the Syrian conflict. Nevertheless, in Doha, Secretary of State Kerry made another ritual statement about his readiness to "work closely with Russia" to achieve peace in Syria.

    This divorce pleases, with the crafty, to negotiate that the bough is cut under him. Glory to God is God above us, and as the scripture says, “And the sons of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord ... and He delivered them into the hands of the king of Mesopotamia” (Judges 3, 7-9)
    “And the Lord left these nations and did not expel them soon, and did not deliver them into the hands of Jesus. They were left to tempt the Israelites with them and find out if they obey the commandments of the Lord ”(Judges 2, 23; 3, 4). - It seems that not very.
    We once have no reason to fear these evil ones - God is with us!
    “When you go to war against your enemy and see horses and chariots and people more than yours, don’t be afraid of them, for the Lord your God is with you” (Deut. 20, 1).

    we laugh at Amer’s attempts:

    Militants on the border of Syria and Lebanon destroyed trucks that brought them weapons from the Hamas military group. This was reported on Monday by Al-Hubbath Neshs.
    Weapons and ammunition were blown up along with the trucks. According to eyewitnesses, using this weapon will not work. The situation occurred due to a mistake by the commander of the battle group, who mixed up the Hamas and Hezbollah flags. After the destruction of the convoy, the second al-Nusra Front terrorist group arrived in time and explained the error to the first group. At the same time, the commander of the militants was shot.

    In addition, the Israeli television channel 9TV reported that it was an American weapon delivered by the Americans under the Hamas flags.

    "Russia is arming Syria. Therefore, although Russia is seeking, ostensibly seeking a political solution, it provides Assad with an opportunity to join forces with both the Iranians and Hezbollah to wage a more intense war against its own people," said Mr Kerry

    The key phrase is "against one's own people." On the good side, Mr. Kerry could not bother himself with any comments at all ... The Yankees have long been accustomed to disregarding everyone whose opinion differs from the only correct one, that is, the American one ... And calling white black, he himself risks becoming black ... ... But let's get down to business. Assad, it turns out, is fighting against his own people ?! Mr. Kerry must have had an orgasm from his ingenious definition of the Syrian people. Who do you call a people, poor fellow. These monsters whom you are going to help, during the entire period of hostilities put forward at least one slightly intelligible political demand, except that Assad must leave ??? What happened to those countries where you changed power? Are you not enough of humanitarian disasters? Or are you hoping to keep control of the chaos forever? I also like the following thought of Mr. Kerry - "The opposition has made it clear that it is ready to take the entire population of Syria under protection, while Assad is waging a war against the majority of Syrian people," he explained. Tell me, can you find real living people (civilians) whom the so-called "opposition" has defended or has defended at least once? It feels like someone is deliberately digging a hole for themselves ...

They lie and don't blush. It is with such American politicians that our Foreign Ministry should have. All recent events indicate that this confrontation will not end with peace. Therefore, you need to seriously prepare for deployed hostilities. According to some reports, a Russian reconnaissance ship has already arrived there. The measure is timely and very necessary.
