Is a drone attack possible on Football World Cup?

1397/3/1 | 08:21
Russia will reportedly deploy jamming devices used in Syria and the war in Ukraine to defend World Cup stadiums against a drone attack. The threat of terror has been a prime concern for organisers of the June 14 to July 15 football showpiece. Russia has been hit by a string of suicide bombings since winning the right to host the world's most watched event in 2010. Some have been blamed on militants from the north Caucasus with ties to the Islamic State group in Syria. Russia's military bases in the war-ravaged Middle East nation have also ...

Syria will not hesitate to retaliate against Israeli attacks: Envoy

1397/2/23 | 08:21
  The Syrian ambassador to China says Damascus will not "hesitate" to avenge Israeli attacks, stressing the nation's right to self-defense against any act of aggression. Imad Moustapha told Russia's Sputnik news agency on Friday that Syria would shoot down missiles fired by Tel Aviv and target the regime's warplanes that violate the Syrian airspace. "Syria will continue to strengthen its air defenses, attempt to interject and down every missile fired by Israel, and target any Israeli air force asset that infringes on Syrian national airspace," ...

Israel Strikes Iranian Targets in Syria After Golan Heights Attack

1397/2/20 | 08:21
  The Israeli military on Thursday said it attacked “dozens” of Iranian targets in neighboring Syria in response to an Iranian rocket barrage on Israeli positions in the Golan Heights, in the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date. Israel said the targets included weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centers used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. It also said it destroyed several Syrian air-defense systems after coming under heavy fire. It said none of its warplanes was hit. The blistering ...

Tel Aviv will assassinate Syria’s Assad if Iran attacks Israel: Israeli minister

1397/2/18 | 08:21
  An Israeli minister says Tel Aviv could topple the government of Syrian President of Bashar al-Assad in response to any attack by Iran against the occupying regime, hinting that the Syrian leader himself might be targeted for assassination. “If Assad allows Iran to turn Syria into a military vanguard against us, to attack us from Syrian territory, he should know that would be the end of him, the end of his regime,” said Yuval Steinitz, the minister of national infrastructure, energy and water resources, in an interview with the Hebrew ...

The Syrian airbase at the heart of a potential Israel-Iran war

1397/2/12 | 08:21
  Isolated in the barren sands of central Syria and measuring five miles across in some areas is the country’s largest airbase. A fortress surrounded by hundreds of miles of desert, T-4 consists of dozens of hardened aircraft shelters, hiding Russian fighter jets and supersonic Sukhoi bombers. Over seven years of conflict its runway has been blackened by the rubber tyres of jets returning from sorties in the devastating war between the forces of Bashar al-Assad and the rebels who have failed to overthrow him. T-4’s remote location ...

President Assad is well-liked in his country for the stability he brings

1397/2/7 | 08:21
  Many anti-war activists, even those who are against bombing Syria, have described President Assad’s rule as a “dictatorship” and his government as a “regime”. Many are simply aping the mainstream media. The truth is that the president is well-liked by his people. During the Syrian Presidential election in 2014, Assad won 88.7 percent of the votes with a turnout of 73.42 percent. “This is a significant amount of voter turnout considering the last time the US had a higher percentage per capita was in 1896. This would suggest ...

Syria shot down 46 US missiles: Russia

1397/2/6 | 08:21
  The Syrian air defense was able to successfully shot down 46 cruise missiles that the US, France and the UK fired at it on April 14, a senior Russian military commander says, rejecting American claims that all of the missiles hit their targets. On April 14, US President Donald Trump along with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, and British Prime Minister Theresa May authorized a joint missile attack against alleged chemical weapons manufacturing sites inside Syria. The attack, carried out without a UN mandate in response to what ...

Pay for US military presence in Syria or lose Washington support: Saudi to Qatar

1397/2/5 | 08:21
  Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir says Qatar must pay for the US military presence in Syria if it wants to sustain Washington’s support. “Qatar has to pay for US military presence in Syria and send its military forces there, before the US president cancels US protection of Qatar," Jubeir said in a statement carried by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) on Tuesday. He made the remarks hours after US President Donald Trump urged wealthy Middle Eastern countries to increase their spending in Syria in a bid to contain Iran ...

Report on Syria, embarrasses the French Ministry of Defense

1397/2/5 | 08:21
  French newspaper Le Parisien published a report on the technical incidents that caused the disruption of the launching of several missiles on Saturday on targets in Syria as part of the Hamilton operation. This information seems to have embarrassed the French Ministry of Defense, which is headed by Florence Barley. The report said that while the French authorities were keeping quiet about these military failures, they made us think that the Hamilton operation (ie, the Western raids against the chemical installations of the Syrian regime) ...

Israel threatens to destroy Russian S-300 missiles in Syria

1397/2/5 | 08:21
  Israel's minister of military affairs says it will destroy Russian S-300 air defense systems in Syria if they down Tel Aviv regime planes over the war-torn nation. "What's important is that defense systems being supplied by Russia to Syria aren't used against us," said Avigdor Liberman during interview with the Ynet news site on Tuesday. "One thing needs to be clear: If someone shoots at our planes, we will destroy them. It doesn't matter if it's an S-300 or an S-700," he added. He added that relations with Russia were still good and ...

1397/2/3 | 08:21

Iranian officials have promised unspecified reprisals. Israeli media ran satellite images ...

Daesh in Afghanistan: West's failure in 'war on terror'?

1397/2/3 | 08:21
  Daesh Takfiri terrorist group is growing in Afghanistan as thousands of foreign troops have apparently failed to restore security 17 years after the United States and its allies invaded the country under the guise of the so-called war on terror.

Russia: German chlorine, UK grenades found in Syria

1397/1/31 | 08:21
  Russia says Syrian government forces have found containers filled with toxic chlorine gas from Germany and smoke grenades manufactured in Britain in Syria's recently-liberated Eastern Ghouta region. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday that the seizure of the Western-made chemicals and weapons undermined "the faith in humaneness” of some countries’ leadership. “In the liberated areas of Eastern Ghouta, Syrian government troops have found containers with chlorine – the most horrible kind of chemical ...

Theresa May earns cold reception in U.K. Parliament over Syria attacks

1397/1/28 | 08:21
After ordering British forces into action in Syria, Prime Minister Theresa May faced criticism from lawmakers on Monday, with many of them seeming to resent being bypassed over the decision, more than the strikes themselves. Speaking in Parliament, Mrs. May argued that the “limited, targeted and effective” attack had sent a vital signal that the use of chemical weapons would not be tolerated by the international community. But the leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, a lifelong critic of Western military intervention, questioned ...

Endgame In Syria: Why US has conceded defeat?

1397/1/28 | 08:21
The best argument that one can put forward in favour of US-led strikes in Syria will be bringing in the principle of the responsibility to protect (R2P).   However, so far, it seems that neither the United Nations Charter nor the principle mentioned before is of any use to protect the Syrian people from the scourge of the war Syrian masses are witnessing since 2011. A preliminary analysis of the latest US-led strikes on sites of chemical weapons in Syria shows that the demonstration of power will not generate the desired results, i.e., ...

Assad's aide: Syrian defenses smarter than US missiles

1397/1/28 | 08:21
  The political adviser to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has praised Syria’s air defenses for intercepting most of the missiles fired by the US and its allies at the Arab country on Saturday.

"The breaking of their evil aggression is the beginning of the vanishing of their empire, which will be replaced by new forces which respects the humanity, sovereignty and safety of peoples,” ...

'World War 3' Google Searches Spike After Syria Strike

1397/1/27 | 08:21

China voices support for Russia on Syria, holds naval drills against USA

1397/1/27 | 08:21
Following a massive missile attack launched by the US and its allies against Syria, it appears that Beijing is moving to make its opinion on the matter known via a show of strength in the Pacific. One of the key goals of the upcoming Chinese naval drills scheduled to be held in the Taiwan Strait is a show of support for Russia over the latter’s standoff against the United States in Syria, the South China Morning Post reported citing a source “close to the PLA.” “[US President] Donald Trump’s warning of military attacks on Syrian forces ...

Syria Missile attack: Why UN has become a useless object?

1397/1/27 | 08:21
  US has once again breached the limit and attacked Syria unilaterally. Bashar al-Assad has slammed the attack while Vladimir Putin has termed it “an act of aggression”. While so far Russia has not retaliated like it said it would, perhaps because none of its personnel were targeted, the US-led move will certainly aggravate the situation in Syria, especially where external players are concerned — and such type of military adventurism always carries the risk of countermeasures by the other side. It is clear that a chemical attack ...

Why the West hates Syria?

Qatar’s allowing missiles to be fired from airbase shameful: Syrian official

1397/1/26 | 08:21

Burning Syria

1397/1/20 | 08:21
