Syrian War Report – June 6, 2019: Syrian, Russian Forces Pound Militants In Greater Idlib

ISIS cells have used an IED to blow up a Syrian Army vehicle on the road between Naamer and al-Khirbet in northern Daraa, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq said on June 4. According to the report, 3 soldiers were killed in the attack. However, these claims have not yet been confirmed by pro-government sources.

This became the first official ISIS announcement of an attack in the province of Daraa since last year when the army and former rebels that had reconciled with the government eliminated ISIS’ local branch, the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army.

The resumption of ISIS attacks in southern Syria may be a sign that the terrorist group’s core hiding in the Syrian and Iraqi deserts has had enough time to restore contacts with its cells in this part of the country. If this is the case, further attacks in the area can be expected.

Just recently, the army discovered a large ammo depot during a recent search operation in the country’s south. The ammo depot contained loads of weapons, including: 3 US-made TOW anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launchers along with 4 missiles, 3 Russian-made Metis-M ATGM launchers along with 6 missiles and two 1PBN86-VI thermal sights, a Soviet-made Malyutka ATGM along with its launcher, 7 Bulgarian-made AT-4 Spigot ATGMs, a Bulgarian-made Konkurs ATGM and several rounds for the Yugoslav-made M79 Osa anti-tank weapon.

A swarm of armed drones attacked residential areas in the town of Jubb Ramlah in western Hama in the early hours of June 5. According to

Local sources, the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces intercepted all the drones before they managed to cause any losses.

Opposition sources confirmed the attack attempt saying that it was a response to strikes on the Greater Idlib area.

According to pro-militant sources, Syrian and Russian forces carried out hundreds of strikes on various targets in northwestern Hama, southern Idlib and northern Lattakia over the last 24 hours. Clashes also continued in the area north of Kafr Nabudah.

At the same time, so-called moderate rebels from Jaysh al-Izza, the group that had received large quantities of weapons from the US, appeared in a new video with a badge of the Islamic Black Standard with the Seal of Muhammad. This is a well-known symbol of al-Qaeda and the official flag of ISIS.

Despite all the attempts by Idlib militant groups and their Western backers to present these “rebels” as “moderate democrats”, it’s not so easy to hide the truth.

    Whatever, the US, Turkey and Saudi Arabia will go on pumping ten or hundred of thousand terrorists into Syria, if needed to topple the secular Assad-government. They have millions of young poor, un- educated and frustrated young men to recruit from the failed middle East states. And they will go on until they exhaust the Russian economy like they exhausted the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Russia can not go on spending billions of dollar to defend Syria against terrorism, so before long, Syria may unfortunately end up like Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

      Russia is defending themselves against terrorism.They can afford the expenditures. They can go on spending billions.

      Saudi Arabia is already teetering on the brink of financial collapse while it has blown almost the entire of its stocks of Missiles together with the tubes that fire them on seeking to eradicate the Houthi People of Yemen from the face of the earth. Now that Congress has stepped in to try and stop the flow of further Missiles and equipment to the Saudis, it appears that psycho-Bolton together with Pimpeo have arranged a scam whereby Missiles are being “sold” to Jordan on a “pick-up” basis by the Saudis once they are landed in Jeddah for onward transmission to House of Saud Forces together with their African mercenaries and their Arab brothers of the UAE so they can continue their indiscriminate bombing of men, women and children all across Yemen. Meanwhile, Sultan-Pasha Erdogan continues to bleed support amongst the Turks, specifically, amongst the youth who are expected to sign-up with the Army for purposes of continuing to blow Syrians to smithereens and Turkey’s youth are having no more of it …….. nor indeed are Turkey’s Bankers nor the Officer-class in the Military. Whatever about young people in America who may yearn to fight and die for the Stars & Stripes in return for access to 3rd level education and healthcare, I doubt very much that either the Emperor of Ankara or the House of Saud have enough in reserve to enable them to fragment Syria in the face of 8 years of hard-won Syrian skill on the battlefield: they have failed and will continue to fail. Meanwhile, back in Washington and ever so slowly, Members of Congress and figures in media are beginning to realize that America’s reputation lies in tatters all across Europe, North Africa and Mesopotamia while drip by drip, they also realize that America is blowing the Taxpayers’ largesse on never-ending and unwinnable wars.at the same time as American roads, bridges, water supplies, sewage treatment and public housing are crumbling beneath peoples’ feet. While Senators and Members of the House may be slow to realize how the world is shifting beneath their feet, they will learn very soon that the blowing of Trillions of $$$$ that could and should be spent on Americans but is, instead being spent on unwinnable and unjust wars is the one surefire means by which they will lose their sinecures on Capitol Hill.

      They have a lot of oil to sell. They can afford it. Unlike the US, 21 TRILLION in debt. No hope of ever paying that off anytime soon. The Rothschilds loves the US debt.

      The reason why there are terrorists at Idlib is because Russia wanted to please Erdogan (due to their economical and commercial ties). We will see on teh continuation of this SAA fight wheter or not Russia has stopped pleasing Turkey (NATO member), if this is so, the days of all terrorists anad Turkey in Syria are counted.

      I don’t think Russia is actually spending all that much. There aren’t all that many personnel involved at a time. And the way they’re playing it, they could be taking the money from the training budget. Syria is like a great big, very slightly dangerous, training exercise which leaves significant bits of their forces with valuable real-world experience without actually grinding them down much. I bet they rotate people in and out a lot.

    Julian Assange is a true angel. He is a Messiah of peace and stability. He is a wall against brutality. He is a voice for victims worldwide.

    Julian Assange has exposed war crimes of America and of their buddies in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine etc.

    Stop torturing Julian Assange and free him. This is a total shame on worldwide journalism. Where is the union of journalists. Call for a worldwide protests until freedom of Assange to save the truth and let the world moving towards light.

    • Luke Hemmming

      Unfortunately Assange is a Mossad controlled mouthpiece. Never has he published anything about Israel’s war crimes, Israel’s involvement in 911, Netanyahu’s scandals or anything that Israel is responsible for. That alone should raise red flags and shows just who he works for.

      • purplelibraryguy

        As a general rule, Israel’s war crimes are committed out in public. Wikileaks publishes leaks of stuff not available to the public, so stuff about Israeli war crimes would generally not be relevant. Wikileaks is also dependent on leakers (duh) to have stuff to publish, so if no Israelis happened to leak relevant documents, they wouldn’t be able to publish them. Israel is pretty cohesive about their crimes against Palestinians, so they wouldn’t be likely to leak stuff. On the other hand, stuff about Netanyahu there’s no need to send to Wikileaks because plenty of Israeli mainstream news sources would gleefully publish stuff about political corruption. So it wouldn’t be surprising if it never came up.

        Also, in general when I hear someone say “Wikileaks never publishes stuff about X” (the most common X being Russia) what they mean is “I’ve never checked to see whether Wikileaks has published stuff about X” and in real life they totally have, it’s just few are aware of it because the Western mainstream media never said anything about it. And I’m quite certain plenty of the American diplomatic cables Wikileaks has published had dirt about Israel–I remember hearing about some.

        Anyway, if Assange worked for Israel he wouldn’t have been stuck in nearly solitary confinement for eight years and looking at the prospect of life in a US gulag. It’s a dumb idea.

        The wikileaks
        The group has released a number of prominent document dumps. Early releases included documentation of equipment expenditures and holdings in the Afghanistan war,[12] a report informing a corruption investigation in Kenya,[13][14] and a manual for operations at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.[15][16] In April 2010, WikiLeaks released the Collateral Murder footage from the 12 July 2007 Baghdad airstrike in which Iraqi journalists were among those killed. Other releases in 2010 included the Afghan War Diary and the “Iraq War Logs”. The latter allowed the mapping of 109,032 deaths in “significant” attacks by insurgents in Iraq that had been reported to Multi-National Force – Iraq, including about 15,000 that had not been previously published.[17][18] In 2010, WikiLeaks also released the US State Department diplomatic “cables”, classified cables that had been sent to the US State Department. In April 2011, WikiLeaks began publishing 779 secret files relating to prisoners detained in the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.[19] In 2012, WikiLeaks released the “Syria Files,” over two million emails sent by Syrian politicians, corporations and government ministries.[20][21] In 2015, WikiLeaks published Saudi Arabian diplomatic cables,[22][23] documents detailing spying by the U.S. National Security Agency on successive French Presidents,[24][25] and the intellectual property chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a controversial international trade agreement which had been negotiated in secret.
