No doubt Lebanon is a better place than Syria nowadays after 11 years cosmic war against it.

People in Bashir’s Lebanon are all united today, 24 hours electricity, plenty of food, medication and gas at the gas stations.

You’re in luck! No minimum IQ required to post on this forum while Bashir is rolling in his grave watching a stupid LF embarrassing him and himself posting such videos and his son Nadim still waiting for his mom to change his dippers.

Russian-made air defense systems shot down ALL Israeli missiles targeting Syria’s Homs – military​

1626985818855.png


All four missiles fired by Israeli warplanes at Syria’s Homs province early on Thursday were shot down by the Syrian Army using Russian-made ‘Buk’ air defense systems, the Russian military has revealed.
Two Israeli F-16 jets fired the guided missiles from Lebanese airspace, around 01:11 local time on Thursday.
“All four missiles were destroyed by on-duty Syrian air defense units, using Russian-made Buk-M2E systems,” the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria said in a statement.


Videos and photos of the intercepts have been making rounds on social media.



It was the second Israeli strike against Syria this week, coinciding with the Muslim high holiday of Eid al-Adha that began Monday.


On Tuesday, four Israeli jets fired eight missiles into Aleppo province, striking a scientific research facility in the town of Safira. Seven out of the eight were shot down, however, by Syrian air defense units using Buk-M2 and Pantsir-S weapons systems, the head of the Reconciliation Center, Rear Admiral Vadim Kulit, said.
For Tuesday’s strike, the Israeli jets had penetrated Syrian airspace through the area of At-Tanf on the Jordanian border, controlled by the US military, the Reconciliation Center said.
ALSO ON RT.COMSyrian air defenses thwart ‘Israeli aggression’ in Aleppo countryside – state media
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have launched airstrikes into Syrian territory for years, with Tel Aviv saying they were a self-defense measure aimed at “Iranian” targets in the country.
Damascus has protested the attacks, calling them acts of aggression. Earlier this month, Russia, Turkey and Iran jointly condemned the “continuous” Israeli attacks as violations of “international law, international humanitarian law, the sovereignty of Syria, and neighboring countries.”

Will China rebuild war-ravaged Syria? Here’s why Beijing is doubling down on its newly minted partnership with Assad



1626987802058.png


The recent visit of China’s foreign minister to Damascus as the first foreign guest since President Bashar Assad was sworn in for a second seven-year term is significant – and signals a shift that will annoy Washington and London.
Over the weekend the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited Syria during a trip to the Middle East and met with President Bashar Assad. Yang is known for his highly proactive diplomacy, often dashing across multiple regions of the world to meet his counterparts, but this particular visit was particularly notable for a number of reasons.
ALSO ON RT.COMThe West has no right to preach to Muslim countries about human rights in China
First of all, it was the first high-level Chinese visit to Syria since the civil war began. The chaos tearing the country apart and efforts towards regime change by the West made it untenable for many years. On the back of this, what made it on the second note more notable was that Wang attended on the day Assad was sworn in for a new term as president, following May’s elections.
That’s a big endorsement, to put it mildly. The timing and symbolism of the visit was designed to confer legitimacy upon him as Syria’s president, which Beijing has not done before. After the visit, China then came out with an almost manifesto-like spree of pledges concerning Beijing and Damascus, again, something it had not done before.
China pledged support for Syria’s territorial integrity and national sovereignty, affirmed its opposition to regime change and foreign intervention, set out opposition to sanctions and also pledged itself as an economic partner by inviting the Arab country to join the Belt and Road Initiative. In exchange, Assad gave his “unconditionalsupport to China on Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Taiwan.
What happened in Damascus is arguably rhetorical; one can see it doesn’t pledge anything up-front, not even a penny of investment. But it is significant and has substance in that it marks a dramatic escalation of Beijing’s relationship with Syria in the midst of the controversy and assaults that Assad has experienced from the West over the past decade.
While this is not actually a change in China’s position or diplomatic principles, it is a shift from being a backyard player on the Syria issue to being a frontline one, tilting away from a previous approach of being careful not to aggravate the West as the war there waged on.
Now, China is placing itself in the driving seat and is expanding its diplomatic foothold right across the Middle East. This includes China’s recent strengthening of its relationship with Iran, including an investment pledge of an estimated £400 billion. Assad, so far, has received no such promise. Yet for Damascus and the Ba'athist Party, this is still a political endorsement which strengthens their hand after facing the brunt of sanctions and political isolation by the US and its allies.

Why is this happening now? Of all the countries for China to strengthen its relationship with, the rewards of embracing Syria seem low and the risks are high. It’s a move that is reflective of a changing geopolitical context, demonstrating how Beijing’s own strategic attitude to the West is both changing and hardening. China is less willing to continue to “appease” these countries.
Whilst Beijing has always quietly supported states despised by the West on the premise of non-interference, it has, in the past, nonetheless also been quick to throw them under the bus to keep its ties with Western powers.
But today’s world is different, and the US is increasingly pushing its allies to target China on a strategic level. As a result, Beijing is now less willing to “appease” these countries and is prepared to “hedge” against their agenda by actively empowering the countries the Western powers don’t like, and doubling down on ties to them. China was never anti-Assad, but for most of the civil war Beijing followed a “lay low” approach and quietly followed Moscow’s lead, never staking out its own agenda on the matter largely in contemplation of America’s priorities.
But now China owes no such respect to the US; Washington’s growing efforts to try and isolate Beijing through a variety of means and pursue geopolitical competition has ultimately drawn this epoch to an end.
Yet this shift isn’t all about the West; there’s a regional element to it, too, concerning the Middle East. China’s move to strengthen ties with Assad gives it strategic leverage, giving it teeth in how it deals with other powers in the region.
For example, neighbouring Israel has recently expressed more keenness to join the US camp against Beijing. China does not aim to make an enemy out of Tel Aviv, so how does it negotiate with them? The answer: by having more of a stake on the ground and using Assad as a bargaining chip. Beijing continues above all to have a “talk-to-all-sides” attitude in the region, even as it bigs up Assad. China also has healthy relationships with Saudi Arabia and the UAE. It supersedes regional rivalries to try to be a “friend of all” – but it will be more successful in getting these states to follow its will if it is itself a stakeholder, and that it is what it is doing here.

But besides strengthening ties, will China actually help rebuild Syria, a nation decimated by war? This is uncertain and, for the time being, not likely. As noted above, this is so far a penniless embracement.
Syria remains an extremely high-risk destination. Its war is not over in the conventional sense. Whilst Assad has won back the core of the country, he still faces pockets of rebels in the North, tensions with Turkey and Israel, and has half of his country illegally occupied by hundreds of US troops backing thousands of Kurdish forces. It’s volatile.
This means the scope for building infrastructure in the country is limited and China isn’t going to pour billions into a de facto war zone. The volcano may have long erupted, but it’s still boiling hot. In this case, Wang Yi’s visit was high on diplomatic symbolism but low on real substance.
China might be prepared to offer Damascus some tokens of aid, but for the most part this is about a diplomatic message which causes ripples in Middle Eastern and Western capitals. It’s a trip which is enough to annoy the West and frustrate its agenda, and demonstrates China’s expanding footprint, but don't expect Beijing to launch another China–Pakistan Economic Corridor-style project for Syria just yet.

..............

I have different information:

I wonder is Syrians would tell the truth all of a sudden. Nah! Whom and I kidding.
 
Should we really care about what is happening in Syria?

I personally feel more supportive to the American people after the events of 9/11 or to the French people after the Charlie Hebdo massacre than to countries I dislike such as Syria, Iran, etc.

It is not because we share frontiers with this country that we have to feel closer or more compassionate to it.

Syria is Lebanon's eternal enemy. And I support 100% Israel against any full blown war against Iran and Syria.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad decreed a new government Tuesday. The government is again headed by Prime Minister Hussein Arnous, the official SANA news outlet reported.
Assad first appointed Arnous prime minister in June 2020 after sacking his predecessor, Imad Khamis, amid protests about the country’s poor economic situation. Arnous previously served as water resources minister and governor of the eastern province of Deir ez-Zor.
Assad asked Arnous to form a cabinet earlier this month. The president was reelected in May to serve a fourth term in office in an election many countries called fraudulent. Assad is the dominant political force in the country irrespective of the governmental Cabinet.
Most important government posts were unchanged by Tuesday’s decree, according to The Associated Press. Lt. Gen. Ali Abdullah Ayoub remains defense minister, for example.

Syrian air defenses downed 22 Israeli missiles fired from Lebanese airspace – Russian Defense Ministry


1629515600206.png

Syria’s air defenses shot down 22 of 24 Israeli missiles fired during recent air raids near Damascus, the Russian military said. Launched from Lebanese airspace, the strikes have prompted vocal objections from officials in Beirut.
“On August 19, 2021, six Israeli Air Force tactical fighters launched 24 guided missiles from Lebanese airspace at targets in the Syrian Arab Republic,” Rear Admiral Vadim Kulit, deputy head of Russia’s Reconciliation Center for Syria, said in a statement on Friday.

The Syrian air defense destroyed 22 missiles using Russian-made Buk-M2E and Pantsir-S systems... There were no casualties among the Syrian military personnel or destruction of infrastructure.
ALSO ON RT.COMLebanon complains to UN after Israel allegedly uses country’s airspace to strike Syria again
The Israeli strikes originated from around Beirut, Lebanon’s capital, and targeted areas in Syria’s Damascus and Homs provinces, SANA reported. Four civilians in the town of Qara were killed in the strikes, according to local reports cited by the Jerusalem Post.
Lebanese Defense Minister Zeina Akar condemned the air raid on Friday, saying it “blatantly violated Lebanon’s airspace” and triggered “a state of panic among citizens.” Beirut has also filed a formal complaint with the United Nations, saying the strikes ran afoul of UN Resolution 1701, which ended a major round of fighting between Israel and Lebanon in 2006.
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have launched hundreds of similar air strikes on Syrian territory over the past decade, including several in just the last few weeks. Though Tel Aviv rarely confirms such attacks, it has repeatedly voiced concern about Iran’s presence in Syria, as well as fighters linked with Hezbollah, a political party and militia faction based in southern Lebanon. Both have assisted the government in Damascus in its fight against an ongoing Islamist insurgency, as has Moscow, Syria’s closest military ally.
ALSO ON RT.COMSyrian air defense units intercept Israeli missiles near Damascus, thwarting THIRD raid in a week – Russian Defense Ministry
During a meeting in Kazakhstan last month, Russia, Iran and Turkey issued a joint statement condemning Israel’s “continuous” assault on Syria, insisting they not only violate “international humanitarian law” and “the sovereignty of Syria and neighboring countries,” but also destabilize the broader region. However, having already ignored a previous statement from the three countries last year, which also urged Israel to halt its bombing campaign, Tel Aviv appears unlikely to scale back the attacks.

"Syrian air defenses downed 22 Israeli missiles"

Very nice.
However, I personally count Hamas rockets that go through, not those that got intercepted or were intercept-ignored for being misses.

الجيش السوري يدخل درعا البلد لأول مرة منذ 2011

09-09-2021

1631152569499.png

لأول مرة منذ منتصف عام 2011، دخلت قوات الحكومة السورية، أمس، معقل المقاتلين المعارضين بدرعا البلد في جنوب سورية، بموجب اتفاق رعته موسكو عقب تصعيد عسكري، وفق ما أفاد الإعلام الرسمي والمرصد السوري لحقوق الإنسان المعارض.

ومنذ نهاية يوليو، شهدت مدينة درعا تصعيداً عسكرياً بين قوات النظام ومجموعات مسلحة محلية، بعد ثلاث سنوات من تسوية استثنائية رعتها روسيا أبقت على وجود مقاتلين معارضين في مناطق عدة من المحافظة الجنوبية، بينها الأحياء الجنوبية لمدينة درعا والتي تعرف بدرعا البلد.

وقادت روسيا، طوال الشهر الماضي، مفاوضات للتوصل إلى اتفاق بين الطرفين، تم خلالها إجلاء نحو 70 مقاتلاً معارضاً من المدينة إلى مناطق سيطرة فصائل معارضة في شمال البلاد.

وأفادت وكالة الأنباء السورية الرسمية (سانا)، أمس، بدخول وحدات من الجيش إلى منطقة درعا البلد، و«رفع العلم الوطني، والبدء بتثبيت بعض النقاط وتمشيط المنطقة إيذاناً بإعلانها خالية من الإرهاب».

وجاء ذلك بعد بدء تطبيق بنود الاتفاق النهائي منذ الأسبوع الماضي، وبينها دخول الشرطة العسكرية إلى درعا البلد وانتشار حواجز عسكرية لقوات النظام، وبدء المئات من الراغبين بالبقاء في درعا من مقاتلين أو شبان متخلفين عن الخدمة العسكرية، بتقديم طلبات لتسوية أوضاعهم. وقدرت إذاعة شام إف إم المحلية المقربة من دمشق عددهم بنحو 900 شخص.

وسيتمّ لاحقاً إجلاء رافضي التسوية إلى شمال البلاد.

وأورد المرصد السوري أن قوات النظام ستنتشر تباعاً في تسع نقاط عسكرية في درعا البلد، كما ستقوم بحملات تفتيش للمنازل، مع استمرار إجراءات عمليات تسوية الأوضاع.

ولا يزال العشرات من المقاتلين المحليين يتحصنون في أحد أحياء المدينة وفي مخيم على أطرافها، بانتظار نتيجة مفاوضات جارية لبتّ مصيرهم، وفق المرصد وناشطين.

وينهي الاتفاق استثناء تمتعت به درعا البلد خلال السنوات الثلاثة الماضية، ويتوقع ناشطون أن تتجه قوات النظام إلى مناطق في ريف درعا يتواجد فيها مقاتلون معارضون، بهدف التوصل إلى النتيجة ذاتها.

ومحافظة درعا، التي كانت مهد الاحتجاجات الشعبية عام 2011، هي المنطقة الوحيدة التي لم يخرج منها كل مقاتلي الفصائل، بعد استعادة قوات النظام السيطرة عليها في يوليو 2018، إذ وضع اتفاق تسوية رعته موسكو حدا للعمليات العسكرية وأبقى وجود مقاتلين معارضين احتفظوا بأسلحة خفيفة، في حين لم تنتشر قوات النظام في كل أنحاء المحافظة. ولم تحل اتفاقية التسوية دون اعتقال قوات النظام معارضين وافقوا عليها. وخلال السنوات الثلاث الأخيرة، طغت الفوضى الأمنية وتفلت السلاح على المشهد في درعا، مع وقوع تفجيرات وعمليات إطلاق نار ضد قوات النظام أو اغتيالات طالت موالين أو معارضين سابقين وحتى مدنيين عملوا لدى مؤسسات حكومية.

بوتين يلتقي الأسد في موسكو: القوات الأجنبية عائق أمام توحيد سوريا

  • الثلاثاء 14 أيلول 2021​

1631640720269.png

أكد الرئيس الروسي، فلاديمير بوتين، للرئيس السوري بشار الأسد، أمس، أن القوات الأجنبية «التي يجري نشرها في سوريا من دون قرار من الأمم المتحدة، عائق أمام توحيد البلاد».


كما نقل الكرملين عن الرئيس الروسي قوله، إن «الإرهابيين تكبّدوا أضراراً بالغة، فيما باتت الحكومة السورية، برئاسة الأسد تسيطر على 90% من الأراضي».

من جهته، شكر الأسد، الذي كان آخر اجتماع له في موسكو مع بوتين في العام 2015، الرئيس الروسي على المساعدات الإنسانية لسوريا، وعلى جهوده لوقف «انتشار الإرهاب».

وأشاد بما وصفه «نجاح الجيشين الروسي والسوري، في تحرير الأراضي المحتلة في سوريا». ووصف العقوبات التي فرضتها بعض الدول على سوريا بأنها «غير إنسانية وغير شرعية».

جاء ذلك خلال قمة سوريّة-روسيّة في موسكو بين الرئيسين، جرى خلالها التباحث في ملفّات التعاون الثنائي بين البلدين، والإجراءات المتخذة لتوسيعه وتطويره تحقيقاً للمصالح المشتركة، بحسب وكالة «سانا».

وقد استُهلّت القمة باجتماع ثنائيّ مطوّل بين الرئيسين، انضم إليه لاحقاً وزير الخارجية، فيصل المقداد، ووزير الدفاع الروسي، سيرغي شويغو. وبحثت التعاون المشترك بين جيشي البلدين في عملية مكافحة الإرهاب واستكمال تحرير الأراضي، التي ما زالت تخضع لسيطرة التنظيمات الإرهابية.

كذلك، تم التباحث بشأن الخطوات المتخذة على المسار السياسي، حيث أكد الجانبان أهمية استكمال العمل في هذا المسار من أجل التوصل إلى توافقات بين السوريين، ودون أي تدخّل خارجي، وصولاً إلى تطوير التعاون الاقتصادي بين الطرفين.
