Killers try to take over chemical weapons

21
Terrorists in Syria continue crimes against civilians. 23 December: A mortar shell fell on Faisal Street in the center of Damascus. Four citizens were injured, one of them is in critical condition. Damaged cars, shops ... Another shell exploded on Abu Rumman Street, which resulted in the injury of three people.


In Hasaka province, terrorists have damaged the power grid. When the repair team worked to restore the electricity supply, the militants attacked the workers in a dastardly manner. One person was killed, three suffered.

In the city of Adra gangsters blew up a reservoir of oil. And this is in the winter, when people are already short of fuel. A great fire broke out, the smoke from which has been visible for two days on the northeastern outskirts of Damascus.

In the metropolitan area of ​​Midan there was a sabotage at an electrical substation. Residents of the city and suburbs, and so recently suffering from constant power outages, again almost a day lost their light.

December 24 in the Christian area Zablatani was released several mortar shells that exploded near the market. Four civilians died, 20 suffered.

But even more sinister are the crimes of the militants against the objects on which the chemicals to be destroyed in accordance with international agreements are stored. At the same time, some countries openly violate all contracts and transfer data on these objects to bandits.

December 21 Syrian side and experts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical weapons decided to move the chemicals stored at two sites. And soon after that, both of these objects were subjected to terrorist attacks. One of them is in the center of Syria, the other is in the province of Damascus.

Fortunately, the military successfully repelled the militants' attempts to bring these objects under control. Against the object located near Damascus, the rebels tried to use the "al-Qaeda method" - a mined car driven by a suicide bomber, as was already done with the Al-Kindi hospital near the city of Aleppo.

The military managed to blow this car up before it reached its intended goal. Unfortunately, while killing four defenders, 28 were injured. But the chemicals in the hands of bandits did not fall.

In this regard, the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement in which it indicated that the gangs could receive information about these objects only in one case - if some influential countries gave them intelligence information.

The Foreign Ministry strongly condemned such actions, stressing that they could lead to very dangerous consequences, and then responsibility for them would fall on those who support the militants.

The question arises - who benefits from chemical weapons in the hands of criminals? Thus, the forces that try to thwart all steps towards a peaceful settlement of the Syrian crisis. Those who are trying to disrupt the conference "Geneva-2", who are preventing Iran from participating in it, who want only one thing - the continuation of bloodshed in Syria. As it follows from informing terrorists about the objects where chemical substances are stored, they are trying to organize a new chemical provocation in order to completely disrupt the peace process and start what was intended in September - direct aggression against Syria.

Meanwhile, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad received a friendly delegation from Australia, which included scientists, political scientists, representatives of intellectuals and public organizations.

As the head of state stressed at the meeting, events in the region, particularly in Syria, affect the whole world. Syria opposed the ideology of radical extremists and terror that has no boundaries. This is a global problem.

"Some Western politicians do not understand the whole essence of the Syrian conflict and are guided by double standards," the president said.

He thanked the Australians for this visit. According to him, such gestures help build bridges of friendship between nations, as well as help Syria in confronting informational and psychological warfare.

    It is impossible to allow the "bearded" ones to use chemical weapons on a cannon shot. I think here the interests of all players from both the West and the East converge. Islamists can use it anywhere and against Israel and against Iran and against Turkey. The only ones who are interested in this are Saudi Arabia. Well, this country in general will soon run the risk of being subjected to democratization. I don’t mind that ...

      If the Saudis are interested, then the United States is interested (but this is so, an axiom), and there is still a long way to democratization, it is not profitable for the Americans to "merge" them now.

    Properly apply chemical weapons is not as easy as it may seem. Yes, and insurgents cannot have large volumes of it, all this speculation. The criminal cases of the use of guerrilla agents by Sarin Zarin were a provocation, the purpose of which was to accuse government forces of this and, as a result, to cause NATO air strikes. Because of the position of Russia, the provocation failed, there is no longer any sense to bother with the weapons of the militants.

        Every event has a cause and effect. Do not confuse "Sour with Prestigious".
        In the ranks of the "Syrian opposition" there are a lot of both outright "thugs" and extremely cynical and pragmatic characters. Will you undertake to assert that whatever happens in Syria is the work of the same hands?
        The use of combat agents requires, in contrast to the capture of unarmed hostages, a certain amount of training and knowledge.

          The fact of the matter is that everyone is not too lazy to command the parade, I mean that information about the movement of the convoy can also get to thugs, respectively, provided that someone from the west really merges the information.
          You will not argue that if the OV gets to the "scumbags" then they will not use it, since they did not undergo special training.

            99% Syrian chemical weapons were stored in unloaded condition. Those. in special tanks, separately from ammunition. Capturing such repositories does not provide any military benefits. Equipment requires specific knowledge, skills, protective equipment and equipment. Even containers with sarin, not speaking of mustard or lewisite, cannot be used without it. In the extreme case, a container with a non-paralytic OB can be stupidly blown up, but again it is not known which way the wind will blow, conventional explosives in this case are much more efficient and predictable. Any expert in the field of rocket-artillery or aircraft armament will confirm that for effective use of CWA, it is necessary to use masses in as short a time as possible. The MLRS and cluster ammunition are best suited for this.

          Of course, these villains lack knowledge, but in the West they may again raise the question of Syria's inability to ensure the safety of the chemical. weapons. And if these weapons are stolen, then the West will not look back at the Security Council. may risk a military operation, or strike at military infrastructure. Thank you Elena for the article, take care.

    On December 23, a mortar shell fell on Faisal Street in the center of Damascus. Four citizens were injured, one of them is in critical condition. Cars, shops were damaged ... Another shell exploded on Abu Rumman Street, which injured three people.


    what request And this is called Damascus under control? How can militants bombard the center of Damascus with a mortar? I assume that the mortar is of medium caliber up to 82 mm. With a long-range charge, the maximum range is 2B14. The tray shoots at 4 km, the battalion model of the 37th year at 3 km. 4,2 km.

    Elena Gromova, I respect you and your work, but if you please explain to me what distance separates the militants from the center of Damascus?

      The distance from the militants to the center of Damascus is different everywhere. These groups are mobile. The fighters closest to the center are most likely in Jobar, Gut, Kabun. The army now has the initiative. Half a year ago, Damascus was under siege around the ring, but all the same, the militants were overcome.

        I don’t know. But Gromova claimed that Damascus is under full control. You know, Damascus is not a town. It is a multi-million city with a huge territory. Outskirts there live 2,5 million inhabitants, taking into account the war, probably + a couple million refugees. And the area is proud 118 square kilometers. Only one thing is interesting. 90% of the inhabitants of the city are Sunnis. And Damascus, in principle, was not in the ring. This is not a large-scale war, where the opponents are attacking all along the front. The war goes on in proud and along highways. This is a characteristic feature of the Syrian war.

        You know the 120mm mortar shell is equal in power to the 152mm artillery shell. 13000km? Probably all the same meters. Just a typo came out. I do not rule out the possibility. although it’s also an assumption. and the mortar could be 160mm, 240mm, which were in the arsenal of the Syrian army and could well fall into the hands of the militants. but with large calibers and destruction there are large victims, respectively. For example, the power of 120 mm is identical to 152mm-m artillery shell.

          I won’t say anything about it, I don’t know, a 120mm mine to 13km is a half-missile, so the warhead should be less.

    "South of Damascus, in Modamia, a ceasefire agreement has entered into force with the FSA militants. The national flag is raised over the tallest building in Modamiya. The militants are transferring heavy weapons to the Syrian army. The FSA is going to form 'public committees' in Modamiya to protect the city from radical Islamists. It is reported that a bakery will open soon in Modamia and some food will be delivered to returning residents. "

      it would be nice if this example was followed in other cities where there are SSA units. Nevertheless, it is possible to agree with the SSA than with the jihadists. If they do, then we can say that the Islamists will end.
