Turkey Will Launch New Military Operation in Syria Within Days: Erdoğan

  • Turkey Will Launch New Military Operation in Syria Within Days: Erdoğan
    by http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/ , 12 Dec 2018
    Turkey will start a military operation east of the Euphrates river in northern Syria in a “few days,” President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said. “It is time to realize our decision to wipe out terror groups east of the Euphrates,” Erdoğan said in a speech at the Turkish Defense Industry Summit held at the presidential complex in Ankara on Dec. 12.

    “We will start the operation in east of the Euphrates in a few days to save it from the separatist terrorist organization,” Erdoğan added, referring to the YPG. “Turkey‘s target is never the U.S. soldiers, but rather the members of the terror group.”

    The Pentagon had announced on Dec. 11 that American observation posts in northern Syria, meant to prevent altercations between the Turkish army and US-supported YPG, have been erected, despite Ankara’s request to scrap the move.

    The Turkish army since 2016 has already launched two military operations in Syria, the last of which saw Ankara-backed Syrian rebels take the border city of Afrin from the YPG in March.

    The United States has long been complained that tensions between Turkey and the SDF, of which the YPG is the backbone, have at times slowed down progress on fighting the ISIL.

    Erdoğan slams new US plan for ‘protecting terrorists, not Turkey
    “There is no Daesh threat in Syria any longer,” Erdoğan said Dec. 12, accusing the U.S. of “delaying tactics” regarding its promise to clear the northeastern Syrian town of Manbij from YPG members.

    “It is clear that the purpose of U.S. observation points in Syria is not to protect our country from terrorists but protect terrorists from Turkey,” he noted. Ankara deems the YPG as an offshoot of the PKK, which is listed a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the European Union. Turkey is also skeptical about a U.S. plan to train around 40,000 locals in northeastern Syria.

    “We do not see them as well-intentioned approaches,” the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) spokesman Ömer Çelik said Dec. 11, referring to the reported U.S. plan. He added that the move will be seen by Turkey as “lending fresh support to terror elements in Syria.”

Syrian Kurds Vow to Fight ‘to Death’ in Event of New Turkish Op in Syria – SDF

  • Syrian Kurds Vow to Fight ‘to Death’ in Event of New Turkish Op in Syria – SDF
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and its component, the People’s Protection Units (YPG), have promised to fight “to the death” in the event of a new Turkish operation in northeastern Syria, SDF spokeswoman Jihan Sheikh Ahmed told Sputnik on Friday.

    “We will defend the north and the east of Syria to the death,” Ahmed said commenting on the SDF response on a possible operation. The spokeswoman added that the SDF would not like to see a situation similar to what happened earlier this year in Afrin, where Ankara conducted a military operation.

    Later in the day, Syria’s main Kurdish parties and other allied groups issued a joint statement on the issue, calling Turkish plans a “declaration of war” and calling on world powers to prevent an assault on the region. “All the forces in the north and east Syria…are asked to agree on strategies to confront this aggression,” the statement read.

    The statements followed Thursday’s media reports, saying that the Turkish military was reinforcing troops stationed in the province of Kilis on the Syrian border with armoured vehicles. These reports emerged after a statement made by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday that Ankara would launch a new military operation in Syria within days to free the east of the Euphrates from the US-backed Kurdish militia.

Erdogan: Turkey to Start Military Operation East of Euphrates in Couple Days

  • Erdogan: Turkey to Start Military Operation East of Euphrates in Couple Days
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    “We are determined to make that area livable and peaceful,” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Wednesday.

    Turkey intends to launch a military operation in the north-east of Syria in coming days, the Turkish president said, adding that this step will facilitate political solution for the region.

    “The time has come to carry out our intention to neutralize terrorists in the east of the Euphrates. In the coming days, an operation will be launched there. The United States has been informed. We decisively want to bring peace and tranquility to civilians in the east of the Euphrates, as we have already done in other regions of Syria,” the president said.

    Earlier, the Turkish Security Council stated that the main threat to the political settlement in Syria is coming from the Kurdish-held territories in the country’s northeast.

    “During the meeting [its participants] pointed out that the main threat to the political settlement in Syria is coming from the [Kurdish] terrorist structure east of the Euphrates River. The fact that some countries do not recognize YPG [People’s Protection Units] as a terror organization is damaging the global fight against terrorism,” the Security Council said in a statement.

“Stronghold Of Evil” – Russia Slams America’s Illegal Syrian Occupation

  • “Stronghold Of Evil” – Russia Slams America’s Illegal Syrian Occupation
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    On Tuesday a top Russian military official slammed the United States for “illegally occupying” a massive zone in southwest Syria surrounding the American garrison of al-Tanf, effectively protecting some 6,000 armed militants that Russia has designated terrorists.

    The Head of Russia’s National Defense Control Center, Colonel-General Mikhail Mizintsev, called the US-occupied area “the last stronghold of evil” which continues to fester with militants “on the territory of the independent state”. He identified a 55 km zone surrounding the base in a desert region along the Syrian-Iraq border, which American special forces and US-backed FSA groups have held since 2016 after taking the key crossing from ISIS. 

    “Perhaps, only our American partners do not want to see up to date how much has been done to revive peaceful life in Syria. They are holding with incomprehensible stubbornness the occupied 55 km area around al-Tanf where 6,000 armed militants are on the loose and are preventing the disbanding of the Rukban refugee camp,” the general said at a Syrian-Russian inter-departmental coordination headquarters, according to TASS.

206 Civilians Killed by U.S. Led Airstrikes in Eastern Syria in November

  • 206 Civilians Killed by U.S. Led Airstrikes in Eastern Syria in November
    by http://www.xinhuanet.com/
    DAMASCUS, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) — At least 206 civilians were killed in November this year by U.S.-led airstrikes on areas controlled by the Islamic State (IS) in eastern Syria, a war monitor reported Saturday.

    As many as 77 children and 57 women were among those killed by the strikes on the last IS-held pocket in the eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

    The U.S.-led coalition has intensified its airstrikes in recent weeks in support of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is pushing to dislodge IS from its last stronghold on the eastern bank of Euphrates River. The SDF has been trying to defeat IS in that part of the country near the Iraqi border since Sept. 10.

    However, the IS counter-offensives and suicide bombing have rendered all efforts flat as the SDF are preparing for another round of battles against IS in eastern Deir al-Zour. The U.S.-backed SDF has also been trying to achieve progress on the political level.

    A day earlier, the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), which is the political wing of the SDF, concluded a conference in the city of Ayn Issa in northern Syria with the participation of opposition figures.

    The conference ended with a final statement that stressed the political solution is the right approach that guarantees the participation of all Syrians in the political process.

Israel Doesn’t Rule Out Simultaneous War on Gaza, Lebanon

  • Israel Doesn’t Rule Out Simultaneous War on Gaza, Lebanon
    by Tel Aviv – Nazir Magally, https://aawsat.com/english
    The head of the Israeli army homefront command, Tamir Yadai, said that the next war would be conducted on two fronts at once, in the North (Lebanon) and the South (the Gaza Strip).

    In parallel, extensive consultations are held between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and current and former officials, amid reports of continued Iranian arms shipments to Lebanon.

    During a meeting with the new head of municipalities in Israel, Yadai said: “The people of Tel Aviv must know that the next war will involve fundamental changes… they will not be able to sit in coffee shops and drink coffee during the fighting; because Israel will go to war on two fronts at the same time… and rockets may fall on Tel Aviv and disrupt the lives of people there.”

    He continued: “The next war will be very complex. It will be on two fronts: in the north (with Lebanon and Syria or with both) and in the south (with the Gaza Strip). It will not be limited to rockets, but will include cyber-attacks and attempts to sneak into Israel to kidnap soldiers or citizens or occupy a town.”

    “In 2019, Israel will face new challenges. The Middle East is changing a lot. Our enemies are building new forces. In the north, they (Hezbollah) are coordinating with the enemies in the south (Hamas and Islamic Jihad). We may have to evacuate a quarter of a million people from their homes because of the war,” the commander warned.

  • When the U.S. Want to Sanction States, They Call Them « Terrorists »
    by Thierry Meyssan, http://www.voltairenet.org/en
    The new unilateral sanctions by the United States against Iran, Russia and Syria add to the previous actions concerning the same three targets. They now form the most unforgiving embargo in History. The way in which they have been organised is illegal according to the definition of the Charter of the United Nations – these are weapons of war, designed for killing.

    For his visit to Moscow on 8 November, ambassador James Jeffrey was tasked with explaining the current US obsession with the expansion of Persian influence in the Arab world (Saudi Arabia, Bahrein, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Yemen). Washington now wishes to formulate this question in geo-strategic rather than religious terms (Chiites/Sunni), while Teheran is organising its national defence around forward posts composed of Chiite Arabs.

    Moscow then considered the possibility of negotiating on Teheran’s behalf for the easing of unilateral US sanctions, in exchange for its military withdrawal from Syria. President Vladimir Putin confirmed his proposition, not only for his US opposite number, but also for the Israëli Prime Minister, during their meeting in Paris on 11 November for the celebrations marking the centenary of the end of the First World War .

    He attempted to convince the Westerners that Russia alone in Syria was preferable to the Irano-Russian tandem. However, he could not guarantee that Iran would have sufficient authority over Hezbollah – as both Washington and Tel-Aviv pretend – to be able to order it to withdraw also.

    Washington’s only answer, nine days later, was to announce the eleventh series of unilateral sanctions against Russia since the beginning of August. This was accompanied by a ridiculous speech according to which Russia and Iran had together organised a vast plot aimed at maintaining President Assad in power and expanding Persian control in the Arab world.

    This rhetoric, which we believed had been abandoned, assimilates three states (the Russian Federation, the Syrian Arab Republic and the Islamic Republic of Iran) as machines in the service of three men (Bachar el-Assad, Ali Khamenei and Vladimir Putin) who are united by the same hatred of their respective peoples. It ignores the massive popular support they enjoy, while the United States are profoundly torn apart.

Within the Past 48 hrs the British Empire Have Attempted to Derail the Prospect of President Trump’s Collaboration with Russia and China to Rebuild the World

    LaRouchePAC Fireside Chat – Robert Mueller and the Queen Join Hands in Hissy Fit

    Within the past 48 hours the British have attempted to derail the prospect of President Trump’s collaboration with Russia and China to rebuild the world through a series of provocations against the American President, flooding him with staged crises in Ukraine, Syria, and elsewhere. All of these provocations are designed to halt any prospect of the Four Power arrangement now put squarely on the table by our forces. At the same time, they have escalated Robert Mueller’s attacks on the President to crazed proportions as the would be Grand Inquisitor pulls out all stops to prove the lie that Trump and Putin collaborated to elect the new American President. Mueller and his British consorts have also undertaken to prove that the rage of the British people and other members of the EU toward the British Empire, expressed in Brexit, was somehow all a fantastic creation of the Russians. The immediate aim of all these panicked operations is to derail scheduled meetings between Trump, Putin, and Xi Jinping at the G20 summit tomorrow which could set in motion further collaboration between these nations in righting this world.

    The British offensive is backfiring, hugely. The President, for example, retweeted a picture of all of the coup participants in jail and putting declassification of critical documents in the coup back on the agenda, a hack has exposed major British information warfare operations, and the MI6 mouthpiece, the Guardian, was forced to partially retract the unhinged allegation that Paul Manafort collaborated with Julian Assange in the Wikileaks release of the DNC and Podesta emails. We are finding that the population is in a Pearl Harbor type of moment, stunned at the ferocity of the present attack on the nation, but absolutely politically engaged and looking for direction. Join us for tonight’s discussion about this opportunity to change the course of human history.

US Switching to Ukraine as Location to Start World War III Against Russia

  • US Switching to Ukraine as Location to Start World War III Against Russia
    by ERIC ZUESSE | 02 Oct 2018, https://www.strategic-culture.org/
    The United States Government is now treating Ukraine as if it were a NATO member, and on September 27th donated to Ukraine two warships for use against Russia. This is the latest indication that the US is switching to Ukraine as the locale to start World War III, and from which the nuclear war is to be sparked against Russia, which borders Ukraine.

    Here is why Syria is no longer the US alliance’s preferred choice as a place to start WW III:

    On September 4th, US President Donald Trump publicly threatened Syria, Iran and Russia that if they exterminated the jihadists in Syria’s only remaining jihadist-controlled province, Idlib, then the US might launch a full-scale invasion against Syria, Iran and Russia in Syria. Either the US or Russia would then quickly escalate to nuclear war so as not to lose in Syria — that would be the conventional-war start to World War III.

    The leaders of Russia, Iran, Turkey, and Syria (Putin, Rouhani, Erdogan, and Assad), agreed in two meetings, one on September 7th and the other on September 17th, to (as I had recommended on September 10th) transfer control of Syria’s only remaining jihadist-controlled province, Idlib, to NATO-member Turkey. This action effectively prevents the US alliance from going to war against Russia if Russia’s alliance (which includes Syria) obliterates all the jihadist groups in the Al-Qaeda-led Syrian province Idlib. For the US to war against Russia there would also be war against fellow-NATO-member Turkey — out of the question.

    The US has been using Al Qaeda in Syria to train and lead the jihadist groups which have been trying to overthrow Syria’s Government and to replace it with a government that has been selected by the Saud family who own Saudi Arabia. Ever since 1949 the US Government has been trying to do this (to place the Saud family in charge of Syria). That plan is now being placed on-hold if not blocked altogether, because of the Russia, Turkey, Iran, Syria, agreement. As I reported on September 25th, “Turkey Now Controls Syria’s Jihadists”. The US would no longer be able to save them, but Turkey would, if Erdogan wants to. “Turkey is thus now balanced on a knife’s edge, between the US and its allies (representing the Saud family) on the one side, versus Russia and its allies (representing the anti-Saud alliance) on the other.”

    During the same period in which the US Government was setting Syria up as the place to start WW III, it was also setting up Ukraine as an alternative possibility to do that. US President Obama, in a very bloody February 2014 coup which he had started planning by no later than 2011, overthrew Ukraine’s democratically elected President, and replaced him by a rabidly anti-Russian racist-fascist regime whose Ukrainian tradition went back to ideologically nazi Ukrainian organizations that had supported Hitler during World War II. Though communism is gone from Russia ever since 1991, the US aristocracy never ended its goal of conquering Russia; the Cold War was secretly continued on the US-NATO side. Ukraine’s nazis (meaning its racist-fascists) are now the US and UK aristocracies’ chief hope to achieve this ambition of a US-and-allied global conquest. Here are the recent steps toward WW III regarding the US alliance’s new (since 2014) prize, Ukraine:

AP: Yemen War Binds U.S., Allies, Al Qaeda. U.S. Supporting Al Qaeda

  • CBS News Published on Aug 9, 2018
    A new round of deadly Saudi-coalition airstrikes have been pounding Yemen. This comes after the Associated Press revealed the U.S.-backed coalition paid some al Qaeda fighters to leave key battle areas in the war-torn nation. The investigation also found militants sometimes joined the coalition, putting them on the same side as the U.S in the war. The Pentagon denies there’s any evidence of these situations. Associated Press Middle East Enterprise Editor Lee Keath, who worked on the report, joins CBSN to discuss it.
  • Are we the baddies? Al Qaeda team plays on the same side as the US in Yemen
    by https://www.rt.com/
    US media obfuscation of the truth about the Yemen war has effectively shielded the American public from learning that their country is in league with Al Qaeda forces there, Rania Khalek reports.

    Al Qaeda in the Arab Peninsula (AQAP) is supposed to be the branch most dangerous to Americans because it is actively plotting attacks on the US. Yet, the US-backed coalition of Arab nations, led by Saudi Arabia, has cozied up with the group amid the stalled military intervention against the Houthis. AQAP not only fights coalition members, but even serves as a source of recruits for it.

    The US has a long history of using radical religious extremists to do their dirty work, from propping the Muslim Brotherhood against socialist movements, and arming and training the mujahideen against the USSR in Afghanistan, to turning a blind eye to the predominance of various jihadist groups among anti-government ‘rebels’ in Syria.

    But the American public is mostly oblivious to the fact that the terrorists, which their country has been supposedly fighting to eradicate since the 9/11 attacks, are de facto US allies in Yemen.

    The US mainstream media does not give such details their deserved coverage. The entire Yemeni debacle has been flying under the radar for years, as the Saudi-led coalition bombs weddings and marketplaces and blocks food supplies to the starving nation, Khalek says.

Russia Says US Uses ISIS-Daesh to Maintain Presence in Syria

  • PressTV Published on Nov 24, 2018
    Russia has accused the US of using the Daesh terror group to justify its military presence in Syria. Lavrov said the main remaining stronghold of Daesh in Syria is now located on the territory controlled by the US. He added that Washington apparently has a covert agenda in Syria. Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin also warned that Daesh was expanding its presence in the Syrian regions controlled by the US. Russia has been fighting Daesh terrorists in Syria at the request of the country’s government. Damascus, however, considers the US presence on its soil as illegal and an act of aggression.

Washington Sees Daesh as Ally to Be Used for Regime Change in Syria – Lavrov

  • Washington Sees Daesh as Ally to Be Used for Regime Change in Syria – Lavrov
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    Earlier, US special representative for Syria engagement James Jeffrey claimed that the Syrian government was responsible for creating Daesh (ISIS),* which he said was trying to “protect people…from the depradations of the Assad regime.”

    The United States is using Daesh as a pretext for continuing its illegal presence in Syria, and regards the terrorist group almost like an ally for carrying out regime change in the Arab Republic, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Saturday.

    “The US State Department has declared that Daesh has not been completely defeated, and that the main condition for its defeat is regime change in Syria and the withdrawal of any Iranian or pro-Iranian units from the country. This confirms my theory that the Americans view Daesh as an excuse for their presence in Syria and almost as an ally in the fight against the Syrian regime. In other words, the main task now is regime change, not defeating Daesh,” Lavrov said, speaking in Lisbon after meeting with his Portuguese counterpart Augusto Santos Silva.

    Backing up this assessment, Lavrov pointed out that the main remaining hotbed of Daesh activity in Syria is now situated in territories “controlled by the United States — on the East Bank of the Euphrates River.”

    This also includes the area around the settlement of At-Tanf in southern Syria, “where the United States has illegally created a zone which they control with a radius of 55 km,” he said. “Inside this zone are several thousands bandits, whom the US regards as off-limits, allowing the Americans to make excuses for their presence, including in this particular territory.”

    Commenting on the recent statement by UK Chief of General Staff Mark Carleton-Smith that Russia posed a “far greater threat” to British national security than Daesh or al-Qaeda, Lavrov said that Russia couldn’t “forbid anyone” from “demonstrating their intellectual and political capabilities.”

    “I heard about this statement, and have heard many statements of this kind from Britain’s minister of defence,” Lavrov added, noting Russia couldn’t influence the decisions of the British government “regarding whom they trust to lead their armed forces.”

Syria Urges UNSC to Condemn Aleppo Gas Assault

  • PressTV Published on Nov 25, 2018
    Syria has called on the United Nations to condemn a chemical attack by terrorists that left scores of people injured in the northern city of Aleppo. The Syrian Foreign Ministry described the chemical assault as a scenario aimed at implicating the Syrian government. Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also blamed western countries for refusing to condemn the gas attack in Aleppo. Zarif said the west only denounces such attacks when they are allegedly committed by their enemies and not their allies. Damascus says shells fired at an Aleppo neighborhood caused breathing difficulties and blurred vision in more than 100 residents. Health officials say the symptoms suggest that chlorine gas was used in the attack, but terrorists have denied using poisonous substances. The Russian Defense Ministry has also confirmed that the shells contained chlorine. Russia also said that they were fired from the de-escalation zone in the neighboring Idlib province. The area is controlled by the Nusrah Front terrorists.
