The Syrian government forces are gaining more ground by the day surrounding Aleppo and cutting off supply lines to Turkey. They have liberated the village of al-Tamoura which is located on high ground giving them the advantage over three towns below occupied by terrorists. The democratically elected President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, has said it would be possible to “put an end to this problem in less than a year” if all terrorists supply lines were cut. President Assad also said “The main battle is about cutting the road between Aleppo and Turkey, for Turkey is the main conduit of supplies for the terrorists”.
The Prime Minister of Turkey, Ahmet Davutoglu obviously doesn’t want Aleppo to be liberated as he has said in regards to WW1, “We will return our historic debt. At one time, our brothers from Aleppo defended our cities of Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kahramanmaras, now we will defend the heroic Aleppo. All of Turkey stands behind its defenders”.
The Saudi Arabian regime is sending their jets to Turkey’s Incirlik air base which is currently used by the US to fly their missions into Syria. The regime is also considering sending ground troops in as well.
The US backed Syrian Kurds who US state department spokesperson John Kirby describes as “some of the most successful” fighters against the terrorists are being bombed and attacked by Turkish forces. Turkey started attacking the Kurds again in July 2015 with Amnesty International suggesting that ‘at least 150 civilians, including women and children, were killed in the Turkish military operation’. The Turkish forces are also attacking the Syrian governments forces after they had retaken an airbase from terrorist control located near Azaz in northwest Syria.
What Turkey is basically doing is taking away the gains that the US and the Kurds have recently made. This is interesting because Turkey and Saudi Arabia are the biggest financiers of the terrorists yet they say they are fighting terrorists. Saudi Arabia and ISIS’ ideology of wahhabism are one and the same. Given this one would think the US would be concerned about fighting side by side with these two countries.
Meanwhile the Russian air forces between February 4-11 have performed 510 sorties engaging some 1,888 terrorist objects in Aleppo, Latakia, Hama, Deir ez-Zor, Daraa, Homs, Hasakah, and Raqqah. These sorties have taken out some prominent high ranking terrorists as well as vital equipment. This was all within a week. What has the US and its allies done in four years? SFA. Russia seems to be the only country interested in liberating Syria and ridding the world of terrorists. Russia is also the only country legally allowed to conduct bombings in Syria. All the western media can do is spit out groundless accusations and propaganda. The Pentagon has once again been instigating some Russia bashing with pathetically attempted lies.
This from Russia’s ministry of defence on US lies;
‘A recent example. Yesterday official spokesman of the Pentagon Colonel Steve Warren being in Iraq stated that allegedly Russian bombers had bombed two hospitals in Aleppo in the daytime. According to him, as a result, allegedly about 50 thousand Syrians were deprived from vital services. This official spokesman failed to give anything else. No information on the time, coordinates and sources of this data. Just nothing. The Russian party had a night for examination of this information.
Nonsense of the rights activists from London is one thing. But if it is declared by the Pentagon representative posing as a military professional – that is another thing.
The Russian Ministry of Defence has thoroughly analysed all the data concerning the targets engaged yesterday in the Aleppo province. First of all, Colonel Warren is likely to be disappointed – he did not guess.
Russian aircraft did not work near the Aleppo city yesterday. The nearest target to the city was more than 20 km far from it. Only aviation of the anti-ISIS coalition flew over the city yesterday: warplanes and strike UAVs.
As it has been promised previously to the American partners, this information will not be hidden any more.
Yesterday at 13:55 (MSK), two A-10 attack aircraft of the U.S. Air Force entered the Syrian air space from the territory of Turkey and reaching Aleppo by the shortest path made strikes against objects in the city so that one wouldn't wish for more. Colonel Warren, for some reason, did not make this mission public in the literal and even figurative sense.
The Russian party will not become similar to the American Colonel and it is to be said frankly: there had not been enough time to identify precisely those 9 objects engaged yesterday in Aleppo. Perhaps, there had been two hospitals among them. The Russian Defence Ministry will find it out. The attention is to be paid to the fact that the situation is similar to the one where the Americans bombed a hospital in the city of Kunduz (Afghanistan) or positions of the Iraqi Army in Fallujah. The first steps are unsubstantiated statements against the Russian party – to divert all suspicion from themselves’.
It makes wonder what will happen to the countries that are illegally bombing in Syria once the country is liberated? Will they be subject to International law or war crimes? Only time will tell.
