President al-Assad: Israeli Aggression Unveils Involvement of Israeli Occupation, Countries supporting it in Event in Syria

President Bashar al-Assad on Tuesday said that the latest Israeli aggression on Syria unveils the volume of involvement of the Israeli occupation, regional and western countries which support it in the current events in Syria.

"The Syrian people and their brave army which gain important achievements in combating terrorism and the Takfiri groups are able to confront the Israeli risks which constitute one face of this terrorism which targets Syria daily," President al-Assad who received Iranian foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said.

Talks during the meeting dealt with the latest developments in the region and the dangers threatening it after the Israeli aggression on Syria.

The Iranian Foreign Minister expressed his country's strong condemnation of the Israeli flagrant aggression on Syrian territories, affirming Iran's standing by Syria in the face of the Israeli attempts to destabilize the region and weaken the resistance axis.

He added that time has come for deterring the Israeli occupation from carrying out such aggressions against peoples of the region.

The talks also tackled cooperation between Syria and Iran and the commitment of both countries to boost them in all domains.

The delegation accompanying Salehi, Deputy Prime Minister, Foreign and Expatriates Minister Walid al-Moallem, Presidential Political and Media Advisor Buthaina Shaaban, Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minster Fayssal Mikdad attended the meeting.

In statements to journalists after the meeting, Salehi said his meeting with President al-Assad was good, and that they discussed bilateral relations, regional developments and the crisis in Syria, adding "we discovered that things are going well in Syria, and that the valiant Syrian Army reclaimed many areas… Syria will recover in the near future."

Salehi affirmed that bilateral relations between Syria and Iran are continuing in all fields, voicing readiness to increase aid to Syrians and provide the basic necessities of the Syrian people.

"We are fully confident that Syria will emerge victorious from the crisis because the Syrian people have right on their side as does the Syrian government because it emerged from the will of the people and there's considerable harmony between them," he said, adding that without the steadfastness of the Syrian people for two years and their support for the Army and the government, no government could have withstood such a vicious attack.

Salehi asserted optimism over the future of Syria which he said is moving in the right direction towards victory, stressing that Iran will not accept any external interference and that the Syrian people are the only ones who may decide upon their own future.

He said that the Israeli aggression on sites in Syria revealed to the world the truth of the false allegations of the mercenaries fighting the Syrian Army and how this aggression was timed with their murdering of innocents.

"Now matters are clear… how Israel shows solidarity with mercenaries and how mercenaries put their hands in the hands of Zionists… we said since the beginning of the crisis that Syria is a main ring in the chain of resistance, which is the cause of these pressures," Salehi said, noting that despite how clear matters have become, some sides refuse to acknowledge them.

In turn, Minister al-Moallem said that Salehi conducted a productive meeting with President al-Assad, with the two sides' viewpoints being in agreement due to the ongoing coordination and consultation between the two leaderships in the current circumstances.

In response to a question on concerns over a war on Syria, al-Moallem pointed out that Syria has been facing an internal war for two years which is also a regional and international war targeting the Syria people, adding "we're used to this… we're not concerned but we're prepared to defend ourselves and our people and we will not abide by aggression."

On the possibility of activating the mutual shield agreement with Iran, al-Moallem said that everyone must know that before the crisis in Syria and during it, Iran's leadership and people stood alongside Syria to a degree that surpassed the mutual defense agreement, adding that the two countries are cooperating in all economic and political fields and have identical positions.

All NATO Patriot batteries in Turkey operational

The final of six Patriot missile batteries deployed to Turkey was declared operational under NATO command and control on Friday, 15 February 2013.

The battery, provided by the United States, is located outside the city of Gaziantep.

Germany, the Netherlands and the United States provide two batteries each to augment Turkey’s air defences. The systems are deployed in Kahramanmaras, Adana, and Gaziantep. The first battery came online on 26 January.

In response to Turkey’s request, NATO Foreign Ministers decided on 4 December 2012 that NATO would “augment Turkey’s air defence capabilities…along the Alliance’s border.”

"There is a move to re-Sovietise the region"...

As reported by the Financial Times, on Thursday, hours before meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a news conference that the US is to prevent Russia from integrating more closely with its neighbors in Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

"There is a move to re-Sovietise the region," said the US Secretary of State. "It’s not going to be called that. It’s going to be called a customs union, it will be called Eurasian Union and all of that. But let's make no mistake about it. We know what the goal is and we are trying to figure out effective ways to slow down or prevent it."

On October 6, 2012, the Spanish government has agreed to participate in NATO's anti-missile shield that will see specialized United States warships based at a Spanish base already used by the U.S. Navy.

Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria said Spain and the U.S. had sealed the deal Friday to use the base in southwestern Spain as part of the shield, enabling four U.S. Navy destroyers and some 1,400 operators to be deployed at the base.
Moscow has long opposed the shield and called for binding guarantees from the U.S. and NATO that it will not target Russia.
The Pentagon also has units at Moron air base in southwest Spain, with a presence of some 4,250 military personnel and 1,000 civilians in the country.

20121128-US.backed.terrorist.bombing.jpg

November 29, 2012

DAMASCUS COUNTRYSIDE, (SANA) - Terrorists on Wednesday blew up two car bombs loaded with large amounts of explosives in the Main Square in Jaramana city in Damascus Countryside, killing a number of citizens and injuring others and causing huge material damage to the residential buildings and shops.

A source at the Interior Ministry told SANA reporter that the death toll of the two car bomb blasts reached 34 martyrs and remnants in 10 medical covers.

The source added that the bombings also resulted in injuring 83 people and caused heavy damage to 6 residential buildings and tens of cars parking in the explosion site.

Meanwhile, a source at al-Muwasat Hospital that the bodies of 33 martyrs were received, in addition to 20 injured people, including women, some in critical situation.

A source at Damascus Hospital pointed out that 41 injured people, including women, were admitted to the hospital to be treated.

SANA reporter in al-Radi and Jaramana hospitals said tens of wounded people were received and given first aid, while serious injuries were transferred to al-Muwasat and Damascus hospitals.

SANA reporter said the two terrorist bombings coincided with the detonation of two explosive devices by terrorists in al-Nahda and al-Qerayyat neighborhoods in the city.

The explosive device blasts resulted in minor material damage.

Visiting the injured in al-Muwasat Hospital, Minister of Higher Education, Mohammad Yehya Moalla, stressed that the timing of the terrorist bombings was intended to cause harm to the largest number of citizens, describing them as "heinous and inhuman".

He indicated the readiness of all educational hospitals, particularly al-Muwasat, to receive all citizens and provide them with necessary medical services, hailing the efforts of its nursing, medical and administrative staffs in shouldering their responsibilities to ensure the best healthcare services.

On the other hand, Governor of Damascus Countryside, Hussein Makhlouf, described Jaramana terrorist bombings as "the most horrible crimes" against innocent citizens while they were heading to their workplaces, schools and universities.

He added that those who are behind the bombings made use of the Syrian's good will who rushed to help the injured to carry out the second bombing and cause more victims.

Touring Jaramana and al-Muwasat hospitals, Makhlouf said that targeting Jaramana by the armed terrorist groups for many times reflect these terrorist groups' hatred and grudge on its residents who rejected extremism and the involvement on the conspiracy against their country.

Alleppo: Syrian army has retaken full control

 

Armed Forces Continue Chasing Terrorist Groups .jpg

The Syrian army has retaken full control of a barracks in the flashpoint city of Aleppo after days of fierce clashes with armed groups fighting against the government.


A Syrian military official said on Monday that the army is now in full control of the Hanano barracks in east Aleppo, which serves as a weapons storage depot, conscript recruitment center and the headquarters of the local branch of the military police and riot police. 

On Friday, anti-Damascus insurgents claimed to have taken control of parts of the base. 

"The Syrian army is in total control of the Hanano barracks after fighting which came to a complete halt during the night," the source said from inside the barracks.

 


Meanwhile, there are reports of clashes between government troops and foreign-backed insurgents in other parts of Aleppo, including Mysar and Qadi Askar. 

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. 

Damascus blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists for the unrest while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the violence. 

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside and accuses certain Arab and Western countries, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, of arming and funding insurgent fighting against the government.

Gatilov: Ban Ki-moon Acknowledges that Armed Opposition Shoulder Responsibility of Escalating Violence in Syria

Aug 12, 2012

MOSCOW, (SANA) – Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Gennady Gatilov, stressed that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has acknowledged in a letter to the chairman of the Security Council concerning the implementation of the international resolution on settling the situation in Syria that the armed opposition shoulder the responsibility of escalating violence in Syria in general, and in Aleppo in particular.

Russia Today website reported Gatilov as saying on his Twitter account that the UN Secretary-General has offered objective assessment of the situation in Syria and acknowledged that the escalation of the crisis in Aleppo is because of the attacks of gunmen, pointing out that it is important that the UN Secretary-General calls for maintaining  the UN presence in Syria to provide objective information about the situation in the country and to remain in contact with all parties.

Earlier, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in a letter sent to France’s Representative to the UN Gérard Araud, who is chairing the UN Security Council currently,  that members of the armed opposition had launched attacks in Damascus and Aleppo.

Syria: Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili

Aug 12, 2012

TEHRAN, (SANA) – Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Saeed Jalili affirmed that democracy in Syria cannot be achieved by sending armed terrorists into it, calling for giving the Syrian people a chance to decide their own destiny and stressing that resolving the crisis in Syria cannot be done through foreign interference.

In an interview with Al-Alam TV, Jalili said that he pointed out to UN Envoy Kofi Annan during a visit to Tehran that the solution in Syria can be only achieved through democracy and allowing the Syrians to decide their own future and destiny, but this cannot be achieved through armed assaults and sending militants and terrorists; rather it’s achieved through the public willpower, not the desires of the centers of power and wealth.

He reiterated that the solution in Syria is internal, and not through national interference, noting that his country underlined articles for ending the crisis which are ending violence and bloodshed, entering national dialogue, and then holding free and fair elections.

Jalili pointed out that some of the countries that claim to be part of the solution in Syria are actually part of the problem as they are want to destabilize Syria, calling for exerting efforts to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people.

He also noted that Syria and its people are paying the price of their firm and principled positions in support of the resistance, adding that the US has clearly declared that it has specific goals and interests regarding what is happening in Syria.

Jalili said that President Bashar al-Assad is still in power despite all pressure and conspiracies because he has popular support, with the popular willpower in general on his side and the side of the resistance.

He also denied that the Iranian Revolution Guard has any involvement in Syria’s internal affairs, saying that such rumors aim to harm the Syrian-Iranian relations.

Breaking News Syria: Users of chemical weapons warn for 'chemical weapons'...

chemical.weapons.victims.IRAQ_falluja1.jpg

As was the case in the war against Iraq and Libya, the U.S. and its allies which were the first to use chemical weapons against civilians during their colonial wars, talk now about a  'threat of chemical weapons' to justify their war against Syria...

U.S. used napalm in Falluja

By David Hoskins

Nov 17, 2005 - New evidence came to light earlier this month that confirmed reports in Workers World newspaper and elsewhere that the U.S. military had used internationally banned chemical weapons, including white phosphorus and napalm, during its November 2004 attack on Falluja.

The U.S. government adamantly denied these reports at the time. Reports of the alleged U.S. war crimes were notably absent from the pages of most Western newspapers and there was virtually no discussion of the issue on cable news stations or talk radio. Al Jazeera’s facility in Iraq was forcibly shut down in an attempt to stifle journalistic inquiry into these reports.

Now, almost a year later, Italian state television RAI has produced a documentary confirming that U.S. forces in fact used white phosphorus and MK77 Mod 5—a napalm derivative—in Falluja. And the Guardian of London has called Falluja an atrocity on the scale of Mylai and Guernica, estimating 7,000 civilian dead.

While MK77 Mod 5 uses a formula consisting of a smaller concentration of benzene, the effects are exactly the same as napalm. The use of these incendiary wea pons is a violation of the 1980 UN Conven tion on Certain Conventional Weapons.

Workers World newspaper had published an article in its Dec. 2, 2004, issue based on a talk by Workers World Party Secre tariat member Sara Flounders in which she described how the use of illicit chemical weapons, poison gas and bunker busters had virtually destroyed the city of Falluja.

Jeff Englehart, a former soldier in the U.S. 1st Infantry Division in Iraq, says in the Italian documentary that he saw “burned bodies, burned children and burned women.” Entitled “Falluja: The Hidden Massacre,” the film contains video footage showing the bodies of civilian women and children following the U.S. air and artillery bombardment.

The innocent victims appear to have been burned to the bone. Others have partially melted flesh hanging from their bodies. These chemical weapons primarily affect the flesh of their targets. The evidence leaves no doubt that the victims were unarmed and in civilian clothing at the time of their deaths.

Orders to shoot children

Describing the United States’ intention to target civilians in Falluja, Englehart states that he was told by military superiors going into Falluja that “every single person that was walking, talking, breathing was [an] enemy combatant. As such every single person that was walking down the street or in a house was a target.” Englehart confirms that soldiers had orders to shoot children as young as 10 years old.

The use of white phosphorus and napalm in Falluja is just another example of criminal action and conspiracy to hide the truth. It fits into a domestic and international agenda to reshape world politics in favor of the extreme right wing of the U.S. ruling class. The breakup of the Soviet Union emboldened the most conservative sector of U.S. imperialism and its allies to try to assume for themselves absolute control of the world.

Recent news reports have provided myriad instances of criminality, corruption and conspiracy. Since 2004 alone, troops directed by the Bush administration have been caught committing torture at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq, desecrating the Koran in the concentration camp in Guantanamo in occupied Cuba and now using internationally banned chemical weapons in Falluja.

The U.S. government first lied in 2002-2003, claiming the existence of massive amounts of chemical weapons in Iraqi hands, to justify the invasion of Iraq. The same U.S. government then turned its own arsenal of chemical weapons against innocent civilians in Falluja and has now been caught lying in an attempt to cover up its criminal actions.

They laid wreaths at the site of the former Chinese embassy in New Belgrade, which at 11:45 p.m. on May 7, 1999, suffered a blast that left three Chinese journalists dead.

In 2009, then Chinese Ambassador to Belgrade Wei Jinghua and Belgrade Mayor Dragan Djilas unveiled a plaque in memory of the Chinese journalists: Xu Xinghu and Zhu Ying, correspondents of the Guang Ming Daily, and Shao Yunhuan, a correspondent of the Xinhua news agency.

Syria: CIA and British MI6 responsible for killing Syrian Defence Minister ?

Are the CIA and British MI6 (Military Intelligence) responsible for the suicide bombing of July 18, 2012 that was called the 'final battle for the capital' and that killed three men at the heart of President Assad's defence team ?

Syria.Britain.Secretly.Equipping.Syrian.gangs.jpg

Some days ago President Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for the armed gangs seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government (but probably there were already secret missions without the U.S. Senate was informed about).

And yesterday the British Daily Mail reported that Britain is secretly providing the armed groups in Syria with the latest satellite phones...

Daily Mail: Britain Is Secretly Equipping Armed Groups in Syria with Latest Satellite Phones

August 5, 2012 - LONDON, (SANA) - Britain is secretly providing the armed groups in Syria with the latest satellite phones that are designed to resist water, dust and shock, the British Daily Mail reported.

"The supply of the latest generation of handsets is part of the Foreign Office’s mission to mould militias into a coalition capable of governing the country," said an article published on Sunday.

It highlighted that the phones that are being supplied to the terrorist groups are used by the Ministry of Defense as they are "designed for rugged environments and are shock, dust and water resistant."

The newspaper cited British government sources as confirming that the "Foreign Office is teaching negotiation and ‘stabilisation’ skills to opposition leaders, and advising on how to address the Syrian people and international audiences," a mission that "is complicated by the expansion of the conflict to all Syria’s major cities."

The Daily Mail reported, according to military experts, that "the presence of Foreign Office officials and the provision of training and equipment to the opposition means that British Special Forces are likely to be operating in Syria."

It indicated that teams from those units are believed to be infiltrating into Syria from their bases in Jordan.

The British newspaper quoted a former British Army commander, Richard Kemp, a former member of the Government’s Joint Intelligence Committee, as saying "The UK Government cannot give practical support to the rebels without a presence inside Syria, and any Foreign Office officials seeking to liaise with the opposition leaders would require close protection from Special Forces."

British Foreign Secretary, William Hague, announced last week that Britain is stepping up what he called 'practical help' to the armed terrorist groups in Syria in the coming weeks.

Hague did not reveal the nature of this help, but said that more details on this additional support to the Syrian opposition will be provided soon.

'Three men at the heart of President Assad's defence team have died in a suicide bombing, Syrian state TV says'

BBC News, 18 July 2012 - The president's defence minister, brother-in-law and head of his crisis team were at a meeting at national security headquarters in Damascus.

No footage has yet emerged of the attack in which the national security chief and interior minister were also said to have been wounded.

It comes as rebels claim to have launched an offensive on the capital.

For the past three days, rebels have fought with troops in several parts of the city, declaring their operation, entitled Damascus Volcano, a final battle for the capital.

The rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) and a jihadist group calling itself Lord of the Martyrs Brigade both said they were behind the security headquarters bombing.
