"Gifts" for the Independence Day of Syria

7



17 April Syria celebrated Independence Day. It was on this day in 1946 that the last French soldier left the country.

Huge demonstrations took place in the city and province of Damascus, as well as in Latakia, Suweida and even in the Golan occupied by Israel. This patriotic holiday was also widely celebrated in the Armed Forces of the country.

But the terrorists have prepared their black "gifts" to the Syrians for the holiday.

In the city of Aleppo, residential areas of Al-Sulaymaniyah, Midan and Meisalun were shelled with rockets. As a result of this barbaric crime, an 21 civilian died, including two children. 80 people were injured, among them there are those who are in critical condition.
In the province of Damascus in the city of Harasta, an “oppositionist” sniper shot at a passing car on the highway, as a result of which one person was killed and three were injured.

8 mortar shells released bandits around the city of Dzharamana province of Damascus. 20 people were injured, caused enormous material damage to residents.

In Damascus itself, Bab Sharqi quarter in the Old City was shelled. One person died, another wounded. A mortar shell also hit a cafe in the Mezze-86 quarter, injuring five people. Among the victims are children.

In Homs, 7 citizens were injured in a terrorist attack on a gas station.

Meanwhile, in the province of Damascus, one of the most dangerous criminals was liquidated, who committed a barbaric crime at the beginning of the crisis, in 2011 year. Then 27 December, Syria was shocked by the tragedy: at the medical faculty of Damascus University in the assembly hall one of the students, Omar Ballyush, opened fire on fellow students. Two young men were killed and several others were injured. The murderer fled the scene. Then he quite naturally showed up in the ranks of the so-called "rebels". Recently destroyed near the village Rankus.

And such “freedom fighters” have been patronized by the United States for several years. So, they contributed to the supply of American anti-tank complexes for gangs in Syria.

This act strongly condemned the Russian Foreign Ministry, stating that these complexes, in any case, could not be delivered to the militants without US consent. This is contrary to the spirit of the peaceful settlement of the Syrian conflict.

For his part, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a congratulatory telegram to the head of the Syrian state, Bashar Al-Assad, in which he stressed that "strengthening traditional friendly relations and constructive cooperation between Russia and Syria will play an important role in ensuring stability in the Middle East." He wished success to both the president and the people of Syria. In addition, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov congratulated Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Al-Muallem on Independence Day.

    Syria’s victories over internal enemies, and their inflexibility, can be seen as a contribution to the struggle against US and EU policies in the Middle East and this is an example for the whole world!

      But it all started with Syria .. Remember the men, what was the tension when our small group of the Navy stood between the armies of the USAG and Syria? They checked us! and we survived then! Now it’s also hard hit almost in the heart (in Kiev, the Nazis rule ..) they took Crimea and then a wave will go .. Oh Slavs keep it up! (I'm afraid to jinx it ..) And they will answer for Syria in full .. Hold on Assad!

            The source of supply is known. Now you can send "gifts" to the supplier, for example from supporters of the murdered Muammar Gaddafi or Saddam Hussein, to please the US population with the words "from our table, to your". laughing

      By the way, there are other gifts for Independence Day.

      More than 300 "Takfiri militants" have been killed by the Syrian army and militia in the past week during operations in the Kalamoun area and the city of Mleha. Lebanese TV channel Al-Manar reports this with reference to military sources in Syria.

      Airstrike on positions of fighters in Mlekh


      Let me remind you that since April 9, 2014, the Syrian government troops, with the support of the national militia and Hezbollah units, made a breakthrough in the Kalamoun area and liberated a significant territory from the militants.

      The city of Rankus was taken on April 9, by April 14 a key area with the cities of Ma'alul, Sarkh and Jebba was liberated, and the very next day, April 15, Khosh al-Arab, Asal al-Ward and Jabbadin were taken.

      In the western suburbs of Damascus, Mleha, government forces cleared most of the village and partially blocked a large group of bandits in a well-fortified area on the eastern outskirts of Mleha and in the neighboring village of Zebdin. In the fortified area of ​​the Islamists in Mlekh, artillery and air strikes are constantly being applied.

    Citizens - choosing the new president of the country (and Ukraine too), it is necessary to take the Head of the Syrian state, Bashir Al-Assad, as an example of serving his people.
    Ukraine overshadowed the events in Syria. But she continues to fight.
    And they have a holiday today. True, a holiday with tears in his eyes.
    Best wishes to the courageous people and their President!

      Do you think that Syria went to destroy its chemical weapons proposed by Russia, without receiving something more significant or equal in stopping power from us?
      I think this issue has already been resolved, but how, "it's always a military secret"... Remember the downed Turkish plane. And these are not all "surprises". I'm just sure. The enemies of Syria are still waiting "Russian surprises". laughing

    And what kind of pa.d.a.l.L., such as American-Saudi lice, was ANNOUNCED, so it’s for this plague: Russia and Iran have enormous potential for building ties not only through the MTC. Advances in the construction of Rosatom's new nuclear power plants in this country have become noticeable. There are also first developments to return domestic corporations to the Iranian oil and gas market. But special hopes are associated with the development of ties through the military-technical cooperation: they can bring Russian-Iranian relations to a fundamentally new level in almost all directions.- and here everything is interconnected. hi

    The phrase is noteworthy -
    and even on occupied Israel Golan.

    Well, these "for cheap" will not be returned. Therefore, as long as Syria declares that these territories should belong to them, their war will continue.
    Hold on to the Syrians! You are lucky with Assad, take care of him! No Bashar - there will be no Syria ...
    Patience to you and indispensable victories !!!

    Here it is the truth, here they are the real occupiers - France, Britain, Spain, and all EU members. About Germany is a separate song. A patient on the head of Vost.Europa and Ukraine all suffer from Russophobia.

    Southeast eagles are now in cages.
    They will have to be released, not voluntarily, so by force the eagles will be released.
    And most importantly, the eagles find mutual understanding among themselves.
    It's time to think about the common position of the Southeast.
