In Damascus, terrorists again fired at the Russian embassy, ​​in Idleb the University was shelled



On November 28, the building of the Russian embassy in Damascus was again subjected to mortar fire from terrorists. One shell hit the territory of the embassy, ​​another exploded close to the fence. One citizen of Syria was killed, nine were wounded, including Syrian security officers.

“The mortar attacks that have recently become more frequent by the militants of the central part of Damascus, including the territory of the Russian embassy, ​​are perceived with indignation and strong condemnation. We regard them as acts of terrorism, the perpetrators of which, and those who encourage and direct them, must be punished”, said in a statement on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

This is not the first attack on the Russian embassy by terrorists. 4 of June of this year caused several passers-by to die by terrorists in the Al-Mazraah quarter, including the embassy building, and on September 22 three employees of the diplomatic mission were injured as a result of a similar crime.

This time, the UN Security Council promptly condemned the shelling, qualifying it as a terrorist act, and called for bringing the perpetrators to justice. The UN Security Council stated that "terrorism is one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and terrorist acts are crimes that cannot be justified regardless of their motives, place, time or perpetrator."

What is surprising - even the United States verbally condemned the attack. Jennifer Psaki, the head of the US State Department press service, said: "The United States condemns the shelling that affected the Russian Embassy complex in Damascus and expressed concern that there were dead and wounded as a result of this incident."

It turns out that the number of crimes by militants already passes a certain “red line”, beyond which even their owners and sponsors are sometimes forced to make statements condemning these atrocities. But only sometimes.

Unfortunately, most of the killings and violence of the so-called “Syrian opposition” remain unjustified.

On the same day, a number of residential districts of Damascus - Al-Adawi, Al-Amar, as well as Abed Street and the Abbassiin Square area - were subjected to similar mortar shelling. Eight Syrians were injured, property damage was caused to apartments, cars, shops.

At the other end of Syria - in the town of Idleb, gangsters also carried out shelling of the University. One student and a passing citizen were killed, 17 young people were injured.

Against this background, the condemnation of the shelling of the Russian Embassy by the United States looks even hypocritical. Moreover, the American media continues to wage an information war against both Damascus and Moscow.

The most striking example of this was censorship by CNN, which, in a very convenient way for the US authorities, “cut” an interview with Russia's special representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin. The management of the American TV channel explained this step with the alleged need to meet the allotted timeframe. But in fact, it turned out that the most acute interview fragments concerning Syria turned out to be “discarded”.

In particular, Churkin said: "The reality is that many Syrians - most of the population of Syria - support the president of Syria, and this must be taken into account." But for the US, this idea is unacceptable, they do not want to reckon with this reality, going contrary to their projects.
In addition, the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN said that the preliminary conditions put forward by the Syrian "opposition" before the beginning of the conference in Geneva are unacceptable.

While the opponents of Syria, led by the United States, are trying to use for their political purposes the difficult humanitarian situation that has developed as a result of what is happening, Churkin in his interview pointed out that it is the terrorists who specifically create obstacles to the evacuation of residents from dangerous areas. He recalled that the Syrian government is trying to evacuate people, but the “opposition” groups did not allow it. “It is interesting to note that when people leave the combat zone, they leave for the territory controlled by the Syrian government. It says a lot about who the population expects to receive humanitarian aid from, ”the Russian diplomat said. These words also turned out to be “seditious” and were cut out.

Then, after a diplomatic scandal associated with this episode, CNN TV channel published the full version of the interview on the site. But it is clear that the site has a significantly smaller audience than viewers watching the broadcast.

In Syria itself, despite mortar attacks, life goes on. On November 27, President Bashar Al-Assad held telephone talks with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani. The conversation was initiated by the Syrian side.

The head of Syria congratulated Rouhani and the entire fraternal people of Iran with diplomatic success - an agreement reached with a group of six countries on Tehran’s nuclear program, which recognizes the right of the Iranian people to use atomic energy for peaceful purposes.

He noted that the success of Iranian diplomacy was the result of the steadfastness of the leadership and people of Iran and its firm position in upholding the country's sovereignty. The agreement confirms the right of developing countries to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. It also strengthens Tehran’s position in the regional and international arena. The president added that this will also have a positive effect on Syria, since the countries closely interact with each other.

In turn, Rouhani reaffirmed that Iran supports Syria, stands on its side in the fight against terrorism. He expressed confidence that in the near future the world will return to the Syrian land.

As if to confirm this, in the morning of November 28 came good news - the Syrian army freed the city of Deir-Atya from Damascus and Homs from terrorists. At the same time a large number of bandits, including mercenaries from other countries, were destroyed. The servicemen continue counter-terrorist operations, crowding terrorists in the adjacent territories, in order to restore traffic along the Damascus-Homs highway.

In a statement on the matter, the High Command of the Army and the SAR Armed Forces emphasized: “The crimes of terrorists and their accomplices will not affect the army’s determination to pursue gangs until they are completely eliminated throughout the country.”

It is a pity that they did not return the civilians and soldiers who defended the city who were already killed by the bandits with incredible cruelty. Including - doctors and nurses of the hospital, which "oppositionists" coolly cut the throat. It is a pity that the atrocities against the innocent citizens of this small town remained unconvicted by the UN Security Council.

      The most interesting thing is when all chemical weapons will be removed from Syria, what will the states come up with against this country, will they provoke a chemical weapon? And then will Damascus be accused of not surrendering, hiding and getting caught? Again, it will be necessary to overthrow Assad and introduce a no-fly zone? OR WHAT ELSE ???

      Israel and Saud against the "Axis of Resistance"
      The official media of Iran, Syria and Hezbollah have launched a propaganda campaign centered on the claim that Israel and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are jointly opposing Iran in the region.

      Iranian agency fars, citing "a source close to Saudi intelligence," reports that the head of Saudi intelligence, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and the head of Mossad, Tamir Pardo, sent their representatives to Vienna on November 24.

      The task of the representatives is to develop a joint program to counter and sabotage the Iranian nuclear program.

      The fars news agency reported: "The meeting discussed a proposal to create a computer virus much more powerful than Stuxnet and, with its help, destroy all software in the Iranian nuclear program."

      Iranian PressTV, citing Lebanese publications close to Hezbollah, reports that Prince Bandar visited Tel Aviv during an official visit to Israel by French President Francois Hollande.

      Netanyahu, Hollande and Bandar allegedly discussed the possibility of cooperation to counter the spread of Iranian influence in the Middle East - after the Obama administration left its allies in the region to their fate.

      Among other things, the possibilities of closer cooperation in the field of intelligence, joint maneuvers in Jordan and the Syrian conflict were discussed.

      Syrian media, meanwhile, in an attempt to explain the success of the sudden jihadist counter-attack in the Kalamoun area and the loss of newly reclaimed towns and villages, claim that the operations in Kalamoun and Eastern Ghouta were designed and carried out by a "joint KSA-Israel operational headquarters"

    There was such a structure in the USSR, its name was the KGB, which included a special unit responsible for external operations - Cascade (Vympel). So, this unit, if there was an attack on our diplomatic missions (and not only), tore eggs to everyone, without exception. In a strange way, the terrorists died. And right now, it is necessary to revive glorious traditions, but somehow it is not good at all to remain unpunished.

      -Ahmed Osmanov: In a strange way, the terrorists died.
      And you need to start with Qatar.
      On September 30, 1985, the Hezbollah group abducted four Soviet diplomats in Beirut. They killed one of them at once. The rest were held captive. Assistant (!!!) Yasser Arafat Imad Lugnie-Hyena was in charge of the Palestinian bandits.
      In response, the State Security Committee captured a relative of the Hezbollah leader. As one of the anti-terrorist measures, the KGB officers castrated him, stuffed the severed genitals into his mouth, shot him in the head and sent the body to the Hezbollah terrorist organization. An accompanying text was attached to the corpse, explaining that other members of the "Party of God" would end their lives in the same way if three Soviet diplomats were not released.
      The principles of the Vympel group (10 people) were in full compliance with the principles of action of the MOSSAD special groups. "WHO TO" suddenly began to kill the closest associates of Yasser Arafat and Hyena. More than ten commanders were destroyed one by one. And then a written ultimatum was sent to Hyena, (a boy brought him a letter) that is, they made it clear that they knew where he was. In this letter it was written that Hyena himself would choose the next victim, if he did not release the Soviet hostages. And Hyena realized that, most likely, he would become a victim.
      IMMEDIATELY thereafter, Hezbollah released the remaining three Soviet hostages.
      PS Lebanese president Amin Gemayel then said: we would not have any hostages if the search was conducted in the way the Russians did ...

    Bandits firing at the Russian embassy arming and invoking the West. And in the forefront of such provocateurs are the Yankees, French and British. Like puppeteers backstage, they pull the invisible strings of thugs from around the world. Tso that the main organizers and perpetrators of these attacks are the Anglo-Saxons.

      Organizers and performers need to be identified and destroyed without the statute of limitations of the crime. And do it on the sly, but based on relevant laws. And then there will be sense and respect for the state. And until, with impunity, they dirty us and rub our hands at the same time, no one will respect us. Yes, and respect is strongly and not necessary. Must be afraid.

    "More frequent recently mortar attacks militants in the central part of Damascus, including the territory of the Russian embassy, ​​we perceive with indignation and resolute condemnation. We regard them as acts of terrorism, the perpetrators of which and those who encourage and direct them must be punished as they deserve, "the statement on the website of the Russian Foreign Ministry said.


    for all the flow of this information, all forum users lost sight of one detail. Mortar shelling. If you take the average mortar range into account, it’s an average of 6-8 km (as for the caliber, we don’t know anything yet, at least I think we used either 120mm or 82mm). so that the militants are only 5 km from the Russian embassy, ​​moreover, they control the zone so confidently that they fire at the embassy without any difficulties.
    and this at a time when everywhere they trumpet Assad’s victories on the Syrian fronts. what

      Omar, you don’t need a lot of intelligence to drive a pickup truck, unload a mortar, and hammer in the direction of Damascus (for everything, everything’s about 10 minutes).

        Denis, hi! So the fact is that Damascus is a very big city! and to get to the pickup truck, unload the mortar, you need to go into the inner city. and if the city is under full control, it’s impossible. forces in the city itself. The location of the embassy excludes its shelling from the suburbs. In principle, it can be fired from 160mm or 240 mm mortars, but then most likely the building would have received substantial damage and there would have been more victims. hi

        P.S. it is clear that everyone wants ASAD to deal with this riffraff sooner. but the facts say that if he wins, it will not be soon.
