US Department of State: Washington is concerned about the possible supply of Russian weapons to Syria

50
State Department spokesman Mark Toner said that Washington could not confirm reports of Russian shipments. weapons to Syria, but still expresses concern about this.




Journalists asked Toner a question whether the United States discussed this issue with the Russian Federation.

"We conveyed our concern," - quotes the response of the representative of the State Department RIA "News".

“We have seen various press reports that Russia may be sending military or airplanes to Syria. I can only say that we are closely monitoring the situation. We study it. We are in contact with our partners in the region, trying to get more information, ”Toner added.

The representative of the State Department stressed that Washington has no confirmation of the supply of Russian weapons.

“We are not sure for what purpose it is being done and whether it is being done at all. But, of course, we are concerned about any attempt to support the Assad regime with military, airplanes, any supplies or financing, since we believe that this is a destabilizing and counterproductive step, ”he concluded.

      we’ll be worried about any attempt to support Assad’s regime with military, aircraft, any supplies or financing, because we believe that this is a destabilizing and counterproductive step, ”he concluded.

      What are you saying!? Oh really?! and funding ISIS is absolutely not a destabilizing step.

        It’s hard now in the Washington region, the Russians, the Chinese, they don’t give rest to the poor Yankees, then they will conduct exercises in their own country, then they will parade, then they will sell non-American weapons with anyone they want, sheer worry. The bastards rebalanced the whole world, now they are worried, would be sitting in their own States, because there are no warships around the world shastayu, they spread democracy, and then they worry.

        Not only finance, but also "by mistake" and supplied with weapons. What then did the State Department not express “concern? Or, as is customary for them, ISIS is a bastard, but this is an American bastard.”

        Russia is preparing to become the first world power to send ground troops to Syria



        In recent weeks, Russians have taken four military actions in Syria:

        1. On August 18, six advanced Russian MIG-31 interceptor aircraft landed at the Syrian Air Force Base Mezze, which is located in the military unit of Damascus International Airport. After the fighters landed, the giant An-124 Condor cargo plane immediately carrying them was carrying 1000 Russian 9M133 Cornet anti-tank missiles.

        Advanced aircraft are designed to be used as air support for Russian units arriving in Syria.

        2. Before Russian planes landed in Damascus, Moscow reached an agreement with Washington to remove NATO Patriot missile batteries from Turkey. The removal was carried out gradually during the month of August, thus preventing the possibility that these NATO missile systems could hit Russian fighters conducting operations in Syrian airspace.

        3. During the last week of August, a large number of Russian troops, mainly logistics teams, whose job is to lay the foundation for the arrival of combat units, arrived in Syria. Troops were spotted in Damascus and in the Jablah region of Latakia province, where Russian troops are building a military base.

        4. Our intelligence sources also report that Moscow has begun providing Damascus with satellite imagery of the earth’s surface on various fronts.

        DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that all of Moscow’s preparatory steps for the introduction of ground forces are coordinated with Washington and Tehran.

        While the three capitals are drawn into coordination of efforts in support of Assad, the faster the Russian intervention is expected to occur.

          Russia is preparing to become the first world power to send ground troops to Syria

          Blog by admin

          Despite Moscow’s categorical assurances to the contrary, Russian airborne troops are preparing to be sent to Syria to fight the forces of the Islamic state. The suddenness of the attack on Monday, August 31, of the ISIS forces on Qadam, a district in southern Damascus, during which they captured parts of the district and advanced to the center of the capital as close as no anti-Assad group had advanced, was expected to accelerate Russian military intervention.

          Moscow, of course, is not ready to jeopardize the position of President Bashar al-Assad or his rule in Damascus, and sees this as a red line that cannot be advocated. If Russia intervenes militarily, it will become the first country outside the Middle East to send ground troops to the Syrian civil war.

          DEBKAfile military sources report that discussions of the Russian-Syrian military commission, which was created last month in Moscow to coordinate the intervention, have become more intense in the past few days.

          Our intelligence sources note that the commission’s agreed activities are taking place against the backdrop of the almost complete paralysis of the US Central Command-Forward-Jordan (CCFJ), where operations against rebels in southern Syria, including those occupying positions opposite Israel, are coordinated in the Golan heights. Officers from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Israel are attached to the CCFJ.

          Most CCFJ operations were suspended due to a conflict that erupted between Syrian rebels and the US Central Command, CENTCOM. The US military opposes rebels collaborating with al Qaeda-affiliated groups such as Al Nusra, while rebels argue that this cannot be avoided if they want to defeat the forces of Bashar al-Assad and Hezbollah.

          The paralysis of CCFJ encourages the Russians to show that their “Central Command” for Syria works without any difficulties.

          This garbage is printed on an English-language site unknown to anyone, you should not believe it. I do not exclude such a development of the situation - everything is possible nowadays, but sending our troops, the best aircraft to the real swamp and a hotbed of world terrorism will be seen as a victory for the United States. Say, I was able to impose on us - a country beaten by the crisis, another problem. So we once entered friendly Afghanistan, then “left” then for a long 10 years. Climbing into Syria may be a noble idea, but an extremely dangerous adventure. Dangerous for our economy. Now is not the best time.

      “We are not sure for what purpose it is being done and whether it is being done at all. But, of course, we are concerned about any attempt to support the Assad regime with military, airplanes, any supplies or financing, since we believe that this is a destabilizing and counterproductive step, ”he concluded.
      And we are worried:
      0). The support of the United States and its ISIS satellites.
      1). Concerned about the dropping of ammunition directly to ISIS positions, the Iraqi, Syrian military and Kurdish militias have repeatedly witnessed this.
      2). Concerned about the training and combat coordination of ISIS units by American instructors at bases in Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia.
      3). Concerned that through Turkey and Jordan under the US protectorate, ISIS sells its oil and saturates its budget.
      4). Concerned that the coalition aviation did not inflict a single air strike on oil wells and related infrastructure in the territory controlled by ISIS.
      five). Concerned about the delay in US supplies to its "Ally" Iraq of combat aircraft and other equipment to deter ISIS offensive in the Iraqi provinces.
      6). Concerned about the agreement between Ankara and Washington, according to which, under the guise of fighting ISIS, Turkey launched the bombing of Kurdish militias (which the US and EU used to take care of), the militias who threatened the capital of ISIS during the offensive, of course, after such bombing, the Kurds retreated to abandon the offensive .
      7). Concerned about the meetings of Senator McCain with the first persons of the state of ISIS, which is not one photo fact in confirmation ...
      8). Concerned that the US Congress has not yet discussed the ground operation of the Coalition forces against ISIS, and this despite public beheadings of US and British citizens (Hussein and Gaddafi paid with their lives and existences of their states for much smaller misconducts) ...

      Here we have 8 CONCERNS ...

      P.S. Yes, and about the presence of the Russian military in Syria, the United States can not be worried if they were, Israel would have spoken out about this and the "Promised Land" is still silent, which means they are not there. bully

    Where did the old "Syrian opposition" go, couldn't the Islamists kill all of them so quickly?
    No, they could not, but they realized that the matter was very bad and made friends with Assad. Now the united forces of the Syrian army and the "moderate opposition" on the one hand are fighting against the quasi-Islamic state. The Iranian militia and the Kurds on the other hand ... and all of them are sorely lacking in heavy equipment. And Russia could help in this matter. Fortunately, several thousand T-34s are in long-term storage warehouses.

    I won’t be surprised if their “concern” tomorrow turns out to be a prelude to the State Department’s loud statement that Russia thwarted the peaceful process of democratization of Syria through arms deliveries through negotiations between the moderate opposition and the bloody dictator Assad, under the strict guidance of the American regional committee. Is there evidence of supplies? There is. (Concern was not without reason). Is war going on? Is coming. (due to the supply of Russian weapons). Do you need to oppose the Russians? It is necessary. (arm the opposition). Armed began before Russia began deliveries? Earlier. (brilliant foresight). State Department worthy of respect? Worthy. You can be proud of him.

    What does "possible" mean? And what about the Syrian Express that goes empty to Syria? As they delivered weapons there, we will supply them! Everything is legal!

    I wonder how much Russia is concerned about the "US-monkey" concern.
