US military columns invade Syria after massive Israeli air strikes


On the eve of another large military convoy of the US army invaded northeast Syria. Over the past week, this is the second such case when a convoy of American troops is sent to Syrian soil from neighboring Iraq to strengthen the contingent operating there, the Middle East Internet publication AMN reported on January 14, 2021.


This time, dozens of military trucks, armored vehicles and other vehicles of Americans with personnel, various property, supplies and supplies for their bases entered the Al-Hasakah province through the Alwaleed checkpoint on the border with the Iraqi region of Ninewa, which is not recognized by Damascus. US military facilities are deployed along the entire eastern border of Syria, as well as in the provinces of Deir ez-Zor, Homs, Raqqa and Rif Damascus.

The build-up of the US grouping coincided with a series massed strikes by the Israeli Air Force on Syrian territory, which, according to the American Associated Press, were allegedly aimed at destroying "warehouses used to store and prepare Iranian weapons." According to AP, the Israelis received information about these objects from the Americans. The interlocutor of the agency confirmed that before that, on January 11, the head of the US Department of State Mike Pompeo "discussed the airstrikes with the head of Mossad, Yossi Cohen, at the Milano cafe in Washington."

Israel's attack was the largest in recent years. At the same time, the NGO Syrian Observatory for Human Rights drew attention from London that the territories subjected to air strikes are under the control of the Russian and Syrian military. SOHR suggested that Israel's increased activity may be associated with the termination of Donald Trump's powers. Tel Aviv could get full carte blanche for its actions before Joe Biden's inauguration from the outgoing US administration.

In turn, a source of the "Al-Arabiya" agency in the Israel Defense Forces said that his country intends to continue striking targets in Syria. He clarified that it is planned to carry out about three attacks "on Iranian targets" every ten days.

    - But what else is there a "complete carte blanche" ... - And why is Israel given this decrepit Syria ???
    - Iran must be hit ... - Iran !!!
    - Yes ... it can be seen that Israel has a gut for a long time ... - And under Biden (as well as under Trump), everything will go down on the brakes ...
    - Yes, and what to expect from the elderly Biden ... -all the same sanctions ... - Someone here does not believe in the "decline of America". ...
    - And what's that ??? - Two elderly old men started a fuss ... - Israel cannot wait for the FAS command from these senile people ... - and, most likely - it will never wait ... - and he himself is very afraid to start bombing Iran ...
    - In short ... another American remake of the old American film Groundhog Day ...

    territories affected by air strikes are under the control of the Russian and Syrian military.

    Who are the victims then? Russia is silent about its losses from the bombing (most likely it was not touched), Syria states the fact of the bombing and reports on casualties among the Iranian personnel.
    And the editorial board writes in the article:

    allegedly aimed at destroying "warehouses used to store and prepare Iranian weapons"

    The editors, to hell with "supposedly"! Write in plain text that the strikes were and will be made by Israel against Iranian installations and personnel! It is very important for both Russia and Israel not to allow the strengthening of Iran in this area.

      Israelis attacking Iranian targets in the former. Syria is acting solely in its own interests - not to allow the Persians to create an extensive military-terrorist infrastructure near the Israeli borders, which the Ayatollah regime can use against Israel. The Russians in the region have their own tasks, which are aimed at observing the interests of the Russian Federation in the BV, as the Russian leadership understands them.

              Yes, you, it turns out, are a stern woman! Taking and stripping 80 million Iranians is impressive. Only our traditions do not allow us to destroy the innocent, therefore, targeted liquidations are carried out, and in the course of their implementation they seek to minimize casualties among non-combatants.

      the strike killed at least 57 people and injured many. Among the dead are about a dozen Syrians, the rest are fighters of pro-Iranian groups of non-Syrian nationality - in particular, Afghans and Iraqis.

      Russia and Israel have opposite goals in this region:
      Without Iran, the Russian group would not even have been able to settle in Syria, much less oppose the Syrian opposition.
      For Israel, the strengthening of Iran in Syria is like a bone in the throat.
      Putin has always stated that Israel's interests are his priority.

        This is your personal opinion completely wrong!

        Without Iran, the Russian group would not even have been able to settle in Syria, much less oppose the Syrian opposition.

        Also a misconception!
        Here is the opinion of the Russian general:
        (2020)

        ... General Chvarkov notes: “In August 2018, Damascus and Tehran signed an agreement on military cooperation, which provides for Iran's assistance in rebuilding the Syrian military industry and the country's infrastructure. The implementation of the agreement can, on the one hand, lead to a strengthening of Iran's positions in Syria and further increase the dependence of the well-being of the Assad regime on Tehran, and on the other hand, Iran's financing of Shiite groups and attempts to spread Shiism in the original Sunni territories can lead to aggravation of relations with the Sunnis and Kurds inside Syria. Further large-scale penetration of Iran into Syria will create a number of rather serious obstacles to the promotion of reforms and the development of the political process in Syria and will lead to complications in relations with Israel, the United States, Turkey and the Sunni Arab countries. This will further exacerbate the task of finding alternative foreign sources for the reconstruction of the country, since the efforts of Iran and Russia will clearly not be enough "
        General Chvarkov continues: “And the lack of funds will not make it possible to achieve visible success in restoring the infrastructure of the state, progress in the political process, the return of refugees, and reforms in the army and special services. In addition, the expansion of Iran's influence in Syria will lead to the impossibility of lifting the sanctions imposed by the United States, which makes it impossible to supply modern technologies and equipment to restore the economy and practically all spheres of state activity in Syria "

          The main work "on the ground" in Syria is performed by the IRGC, mostly by mercenaries. Russia is not in a position to conduct military operations against the Syrian opposition with only aviation and special forces. And there are practically no Syrian regular troops left.

    Um.
    Let's sum up.
    After another cowardly strikes by the Israeli air force from the Lebanese airspace on the Shiite formations of Iran, the American troops heroically invaded the territory of the Kurdish formations under their control.
    (from where they merged just as heroically in October 2019 from Erdogan's troops approaching far beyond the two horizons.)

    Here already some of the caps were thrown around for joy.

                      The Israeli casualties were 119 soldiers and 44 civilians. 45 Merkava tanks and 14 infantry fighting vehicles based on tanks were knocked out of ATGM and RPG, six more and one, respectively, were blown up by land mines. 30 tankers were killed.

                      On the whole, Israel's actions in this war were unsuccessful. If in all previous Arab-Israeli wars (except, perhaps, the war in the same Lebanon in 1982) Israel acted in the role of David, then in 2006 he first appeared as Goliath.

        As long as there is a loyal friend of Israel in the Kremlin, Israeli planes will fly and bomb wherever they want. But that's it, bonus. The main thing is that there is the American Kaganate, and until he leaves Israel (as was the case in Germany in the 30s), the Israelis can safely enjoy life.
