Military Review

Syria. Operation Bearded Baker

Over the past couple of weeks, a notorious organization Human Rights Watch noted at once several reports of "war crimes" allegedly committed by Russian military aviation groups of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria.

Publication from 9 October:

Syria: Presumably Russian air strikes caused civilian casualties.

The publication says that two certain "local activists" together with two "specialists of the emergency response service" reported to HRW that Russian planes launched strikes near the settlement of Tell-Bis (north of Homs), which allegedly caused the death of 17 "civilians". The declared activists (and they, well, of course, were at the right time in the right place, they just got a battery on the phone ...) stated that, you know, there were no terrorists north of Homs, and that it was necessary to start an investigation of the "crimes against humanity. " To heighten the impression, it is reported that a certain Mustafa Vakil, too, of course, an activist was the victim of blows ... According to statements by other "activists", Vakil was not at all ... wasn’t listed ... he wasn’t ... He turned out to be just baking bread. A sort of activist baker, through whom the Western funding of the “moderate” could pass - the very ones who cut off their heads much more moderately than the unlimited…

Nadim Auri (deputy head of the Middle East branch) HRW):

Now, civilians in Syria may have to fear Russian aviation, even if they have no clear military targets nearby.

If we are talking about a “civilian population”, which even goes to the toilet with a grenade launcher, and which is excitedly rejoicing at the regular mass execution of Syrian military personnel previously captured, then it’s really worth being wary of ...

Publication from 10 October:

Syria: It is reported on the use of a new type of cluster munitions produced in Russia.

The message that Russia either “itself uses cluster munitions”, or such munitions from Russia are received by the Syrian military. And still the same Nadim Auri states that this kind of ammunition, of course, is a threat to the civilian population of Syria.

The use of another type of cluster munition in Syria is extremely worrying, as it inevitably has long-term dangerous consequences for the civilian population. Cluster munitions should not be used by either Russia or Syria; Both states should immediately accede to the relevant international convention.

“Both states should” ... But more, Russia and Syria shouldn’t give Mr. Auri anything? At the same time, Auri, so worried about the use of a certain type of ammunition in Syria, for some reason still has not expressed concern about the use, for example, of incendiary (phosphorus) ammunition by the American army in Iraq. Interestingly, Washington has already promised Mr. Auri from Human Rights Watch, what will strictly observe the convention? ..

Accusations of war crimes, information about the commission of which allegedly by Russian pilots appeared on the official website of the international "human rights" organization, were rejected in the Kremlin. A spokesman for the head of state, Dmitry Peskov, called such accusations a newspaper "duck."

Dmitry Peskov quotes Interfax:
In the past few days, we have recorded a great number of messages, newspaper "ducks", deliberate discharges regarding the consequences of the military air operation that the Russian armed forces are carrying out in Syria. I think that this (HRW publications) is probably one of them. When choosing targets, when using the necessary data that the Russian military, the Syrian colleagues, and colleagues at the Baghdad Information and Coordination Center receive, priority attention is paid not to harm the civilian population.

At the same time, the head of the Kremlin’s press service noted that Russian aviation does not strike at populated areas, but destroys infrastructure facilities and militant positions located outside their borders, including the outskirts.

Against this background, representatives of the Syrian armed forces report that in a number of locations under the control of militants from various terrorist groups, including ISIS and Dzhebkhat al-Nusra, terrorists carry out executions of the local population to intimidate those who are going to take participation in resistance to militants, and those who are awaiting the release of cities by the Syrian military. By the way, Peskov also declares that, according to pilots (already Russian) based on intelligence, the militants are trying to hide in residential areas, in the case of force majeure posing as civilians. For the purpose of provocations, the militants themselves also beat urban neighborhoods, in which truly civilians remain, often uploading videos of their “exploits” to the network.

And here is the video, filmed in the same area north of Homs, which was hit a few days ago by the airborne forces of the Russian Federation.

The shots clearly show how “activists” - “bakers” “peacefully” load guns and firing from mortars, as well as from automatic weaponshiding in littered shelters (video posted on Dogs of War on YouTube). Judging by the lack of reaction of HRW, these “human rights activists” do not violate ... They, after all, do not use cluster munitions ... They just launch American mines, but is this a violation of rights and freedoms? .. Mina- then moderate and democratic!

But did HRW have any questions for these “bakers” who are hitting from a recoilless weapon with direct fire on residential areas?

Apparently, it did not arise, because they smell only fresh pastry ... And noses, apparently, "in flour" ...

And as the completion of the material is a small reference information.

International organization Human Rights Watch so “concerned” with the problems of Syria, that in this country HRW does not even have its own representative office.

Apparently, the data on the violation of the rights and freedoms of Syrian citizens come to HRW exclusively through the two “activists” mentioned above, who for some reason are always there, where the strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces airplanes are sent, and, unfortunately, the activists have a problem - constantly discharged telephone batteries, allowing them to be based solely on "truthful information" presented by bearded "bakers". All in the best "human rights" traditions ...

PS On the "killed bakers and patients of Syrian hospitals" on the eve of the briefing spokesman said the spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry, Major-General Igor Konashenkov. According to him, all these materials referring to unnamed sources are deliberately impersonal. According to Konashenkov, all this is nothing more than stuffing, aimed at ensuring that some media can refer to them and multiply misinformation.

Press service of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation:

The Russian Ministry of Defense comments on publications in a number of English-language media with reference to certain “doctors” of the Syrian-American Medical Society about the alleged death of peaceful Syrians as a result of an air strike of Russian 20 aircraft of October at the “hospital” in the Sarmin village:

“Such injections are closely monitored and analyzed.

First of all, it is necessary to clarify the Syrian-American Medical Society itself: this organization, registered in the US state of Illinois, is no more relevant to medicine than ISIS to the international scout movement. Since its inception in 2012, this organization has been used primarily to publish "evidence" of alleged use of chemical weapons against the Syrian opposition. But when it turned out that all these “testimonies,” lies, this office quietly lay to the bottom.

The true purpose of such structures is to make impersonal information stuffing for later pick-up by the designated media.

Other similar offices, which are famous for accusing the Russian Aerospace Force of the Russian Federation in bombing the civilian population a week before the start of flights of the Russian air group in the sky of Syria, work in the same way.

Before destroying any object of terrorists, information is checked for several days through several channels, and only after receiving one hundred percent confidence in the target, does the aviation deliver an appropriate high-precision munition to the ISIS infrastructure. ”

HRW “activists” should have familiarized themselves with this statement of the official of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, although the owners set completely different tasks for such “activists” ...

    Nadim Auri (Deputy Head of HRW Middle East) Where is he sitting? Use in Syria one more type "-that is, one of the types can be used, I will even try to guess who ..." cluster munitions cause extreme concern "again, guess whose", because this inevitably entails long-term dangerous consequences for "again guessing for - who needs to shave off the beards" population. Cluster munitions should not be used by either Russia or Syria "they can only be used by the Western coalition, but you can't"; both states must accede without delay to the relevant international convention
