Israel suffers major setback in Syria

1396/12/4 | 06:31
  The military confrontation between Israeli and Syrian/Iranian forces on 10 February set off widespread analysis and speculation on the probability of a major regional war. The severity of the latest clash – with reports that Israel may have destroyed up to 50 per cent of Syrian air defence systems – underscores the depth of tension in the area. But the most important aspect of the clash was the shooting down of an Israeli F-16 fighter jet by Syrian air defences. This marked the first time in 36 years that an Israeli fighter jet has ...

1396/12/3 | 06:31
  According to the Arabic-language news channel al-Manar, citing al-Ikhbariyah, the White Helmets group has been preparing for another provocation against the Syrian government. The White Helmets group, which claims to be an impartial humanitarian NGO saving lives in Syria, has reportedly distributed masks in Eastern Ghouta to protect civilians from a chemical gas attack. The group, also known as Syrian Civil Defense, has allegedly been creating a new plot to blame another chemical attack on the Syrian government, al-Manar reported. Last ...

At least 38 people died on Wednesday. At least 310 people have been killed in the district since Sunday night and more than 1,550 injured, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said. The eastern Ghouta, a densely populated agricultural district on the Damascus outskirts, is the last ...

Turkey Struggles with Rising Death Toll in Afrin Invasion

1396/11/24 | 06:31
Several weeks into Turkey’s invasion of northern Syria’s Afrin District, the push into the Kurdish-held territory is struggling, with heavy resistance and mounting casualties among not just Turkey’s FSA allies, but Turkey’s own military.   Saturday was the deadliest day for Turkish forces in Afrin, with 11 Turkish troops killed. Another soldier was killed on Sunday, bringing the total toll for the operation since January 20 to 31 killed.   Turkey appeared to expect a quick overrun of Afrin and Manbij before pushing into ...

Report: ISIS’s Baghdadi Alive, but Trapped on ‘Island’

1396/11/24 | 06:31
  The elusive head of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) has survived an airstrike and is believed to be hiding out in a shrinking bastion of jihadi control in a mostly desert stretch of eastern Syria known as Al-Jazeera, or "the Island," according to U.S. and Iraq officials. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the hardline Sunni Muslim cleric who expanded his Al-Qaeda offshoot from Iraq across Syria, has only made one known public appearance and, as his group suffered widespread losses in recent years, unconfirmed reports of his whereabouts and ...

France has no absolute evidence on Syria chemical attack: Defense minister

1396/11/22 | 06:31
  The French defense minister has cast doubt on the veracity of accusations that the Syrian government has used the chemical agent chlorine in the country. “We have some indications of possible chlorine use [in Syria], but we have no absolute confirmation,” Florence Parly told France Inter radio on Friday. “So we, alongside the others, are working on trying to confirm this, as we clearly have to get the facts straight,” she added, without elaborating on who else was engaged in the confirmation effort. Parly pointed to French ...

Syria downs Israeli F-16 warplane: Start of new strategic phase says Hezbollah

1396/11/22 | 06:31
  The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement has strongly condemned the Israeli regime’s continued acts of aggression against Syria’s military and civilian structures, saying the downing of an Israeli F-16 jet by the Syrian air defense systems marks the “start of a new strategic phase” which would limit Israeli violations of the Syrian airspace. Hezbollah, in a statement released on Saturday evening, praised “the vigilance of the Syrian army and its valiant response to shoot down the hostile Israeli aircraft.” “Today's developments ...

US in Syria to plunder country's economic assets: Russia

1396/11/20 | 06:31
  Russia says a recent US attack on pro-Damascus forces proves that Washington is not fighting Daesh but rather it is seeking to plunder Syria's economic assets. The Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement released on Thursday that the US raid once "again showed that the US is maintaining its illegal presence in Syria not to fight the Daesh group, but to seize and hold Syrian economic assets." The US military said on Wednesday it had killed at least 100 pro-Damascus fighters to allegedly fend off an attack on the so-called Syrian ...

Chemical attack claims: US handy pretext for pressing Syria

1396/11/19 | 06:31
The use of chemical weapons has been one of the most controversial issues during several years of crisis in Syria.     These deadly weapons have been used several times so far, especially in attacks in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus outskirts on August 21, 2013, and also in Khan Shaykhun village in Idlib outskirts on April 4, 2017. But the relevant sides of the conflict have never reached a consensus on who really used these weapons. However, in recent days the Western media have quoted the American officials as saying that the Syrian ...

1396/11/19 | 06:31

1396/11/17 | 06:31

1396/11/16 | 06:31

UN calls on Iran, Russia, Turkey to allow aid into Syria

1396/11/14 | 06:31
The UN has appealed to the major international players in the Syrian conflict to allow aid through to territories still under attack, according to Reuters.   Humanitarian adviser Jan Egeland yesterday called on Russia, Turkey and Iran to de-escalate the fighting, particularly in the Idlib governorate, which he said was “screaming for a ceasefire.”   A UN humanitarian taskforce has been unable to make deliveries to besieged areas across the country for over two months, as Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad’s government has withheld ...

Trump prepared for military action in Syria to deter chemical attacks: Officials

1396/11/13 | 06:31
  Senior US officials have claimed President Donald Trump is prepared to launch a military action if necessary against the Syrian government which they say is possibly developing new types of chemical weapons. The officials on Thursday said the government of Syrian Bashar al-Assad saved a part of chemical weapons stockpile despite a US-Russian deal under which Damascus had agreed to hand over all such weapons for destruction.

Peace proposal by US, Saudi Arabia ‘not even worth the ink’: Syria

1396/11/7 | 06:31
The Syrian ambassador to the United Nations and head of the government delegation to intra-Syrian peace talks has strongly rejected a proposal offered by some countries, including the US and Saudi Arabia, for the resolution of the Syrian crisis, saying the so-called peace plan is “not even worth the ink.” Bashar al-Ja’afari made the remarks at a press conference held at the end of UN-brokered indirect peace negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups in the Austrian capital city of Vienna on Friday, referring to what ...

Erdogan: Syria offensive could expand as far as Iraq border

1396/11/7 | 06:31
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey may extend its operation against the Afrin region in Syria to other cities as far east as the Iraqi border. Addressing provincial leaders from his ruling Justice and Development Party on Friday, the Turkish leader vowed to "clean up" the city of Manbij, east of Afrin, also held by US-backed YPG militants. “We will continue our fight until there is no terrorist on our border leading to Iraq,” Erdogan said.

Why US and Company are at each other’s throats in Syria?

1396/11/6 | 06:31
  Well, it comes with the situation. For some time they were all happy with helping the United States to destroy Syria and impose mercenary regime change in Damascus.   Now they are fighting each other because the War Party, its regional allies and terror proxy forces failed in the mercenary regime change campaign. As a consequence, two major US allies are in open conflict and the War Party can’t do a damn thing about it:   US warnings and calls for restraint have failed, and Turkey has invaded Syria’s Afrin District, ...

Pentagon calls Turkey's military action in Syria a 'distraction'

1396/11/6 | 06:31
  The US military has called on Turkey to halt its military action in Syria’s northwestern region of Afrin against Kurdish fighters and focus on combating Daesh terrorists. “Turkey is an ally and we’re going to work with them, but this current issue offensive is a distraction and we have to focus as allies on the mission at hand and that’s defeating ISIS [Daesh],” chief Defense Department spokeswoman Dana White told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday. NATO member Turkey last week launched "Operation Olive Branch," a new air ...

Syrian conflict: The new US game plan to down Assad

1396/11/4 | 06:31
  United States’ plan for 30,000-strong border force in Syria has caused tremendous outrage.     The aim of establishing a Border Security Force (BSF), which was announced on Sunday, is to protect territory held by the Kurds in Syria’s northeast.     Of the various militias which have received US support, the most prominent have been forces dominated by Kurdish groups. This, unsurprisingly, has greatly angered Turkey, which has sent troops of its own into northern Syria to target Kurdish militia groups.   The ...

Hidden Israeli-Iranian war in Syria

1396/10/28 | 06:31
Israeli raids and air strikes have recently increased deep into the Syrian territories. According to Israeli media and research centres reports, these attacks target Iranian weapons before parts of them are transferred to Hezbollah in Lebanon.   The reports state that the missiles are particularly advanced and accurate and could potentially undermine Israel’s strategic domiance and enable Iranian proxies to target anywhere in Israel.   On Wednesday, military analyst in Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper, Alex Fishman, said that in the ...

1396/10/26 | 06:31

  The so-called military coalition led by the United States in Syria is reportedly planning to set up a new large border force of up to 30,000 personnel with the aid of its militia allies in war-torn country, a move that will further infuriate Turkey, a NATO ally that is already angry over Washington’s strong support for Kurdish-dominated forces in the Arab country.

Israeli regime can’t help terrorists in Syria with attacks: Damascus

1396/10/20 | 06:31
Syria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates has censured the recent Israeli attacks near the war-torn nation's capital, stressing such acts of aggression and the dangerous and hostile course that the Tel Aviv is pursuing to destabilize the Middle East region are meant to lift the morale of foreign-backed Takfiri terrorist groups. In two separate letters addressed to United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the rotating president of the UN Security Council, Kairat Umarov, on Tuesday, the ministry stated that Israeli jets ...

1396/10/16 | 06:31

Israel sole winner of Saudi Arabia’s ME destabilizing game

1396/10/5 | 06:31
Being a region full of complexities, the Middle East has been facing a string of crises. The rise of Daesh in Iraq and Syria followed by the Qatar blockade, fueling sectarian tensions, the invasion of Yemen, the flood of US arms to the Middle East and the recent Lebanese crisis are only a few instances in which Saudi Arabia’s involvement is discernible.   Apparently, Saudi Arabia is now facing the consequences of its insanity and the conspiracies it has been fomenting in the Middle East as the crisis has spilled over to its own territory, ...

Why is Russia withdrawing from Syria?

1396/9/26 | 06:31
  I order the Defense Ministry and the chief of the General Staff to begin the pullout of the Russian military group from the Syrian Arab Republic to permanent locations.   After the announcement of the defeat of ISIS terrorist group in Syria last month, the most important news about the crisis-hit country was perhaps the surprise visit of the Russian president Vladimir Putin to Syria and ordering a major part of his country’s forces to withdraw from the Syrian soil. Putin, furthermore, said that the mission that was given to the ...
