US planes hit pro-Iranian forces in Syria


The US-led military coalition launched a series of strikes against pro-Iranian forces in eastern Syria in the areas bordering Iraq, attacking Tehran-backed militias fighting on the side of Bashar al-Assad. The Turkish newspaper Yeni Şafak writes about the actions of the Americans and their allied forces on Friday, February 12.


United States military aircraft hit the positions of pro-Iranian militants in the province of Deir el Zor near the Syrian-Iraqi border, where pipelines and trade routes from Iraq and Jordan to the SAR pass. The detachments operating in this territory are subordinate to the command of the IRGC.

On January 13, the Israeli Air Force launched a massive attack on eastern Syria in the Deir el Zor region, killing 40 fighters and injuring several dozen. Among the dead were those fighting in the ranks of the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Shiite militia of Afghanistan, the Fatimiyun Brigade.

The Israeli air strikes were carried out using intelligence received from the United States and were aimed at destroying weapons depots in Al-Bukamal near the Iraqi border and the city of Mayadin used by pro-Iranian militias.

According to the Associated Press, on January 11, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed with the head of Israel's Mossad secret service Yossi Cohen about an upcoming military operation at Cafe Milano in Washington.

          Why not? Need to repeat? winked
          Will the Estonian iron division go to Damascus, or do you prefer to invite Americans to Crimea as the Sumerians? wink

            I mean Lviv. In Syria, there are enough of their own people to manage on their own.
            And Ukraine has now become the entire US base.

      Israelis and Americans do not bomb residential areas or turn cities into rubble. So let Damascus stand for itself, but the objects of the Iranians and their proxies must be ruthlessly destroyed - they have no place in Syrian territory and the dreams of the Ayatollahs to turn the neighboring territory into an outpost against Israel will not come true, the Persians should have understood this long ago ...

        But then Assad will remain there for a long time. And millions of Syrians want to go home. A normal army can clean it out quickly. A lot of problems will go away immediately and Iran, Russia, Turkey and the United States will go home.

          So let these millions, instead of looking for a well-fed life in Europe, return home and take up arms to overthrow the bloody dictator and expel the invaders from the country.

          Do you want blood? For the sake of overthrowing Assad, can the civilians be slightly bombed? Isn't that a big price?
          Can hit Tallinn, what would be in the dust, what's the difference how many will die, but we will surely cover all the Nazis sad

            There has been a civil war since the 11th year and Assad is guilty of it. And he shed his first blood there. No one has canceled the Criminal Code. For 10 years on it hundreds of thousands of lives and the destruction of the country.
            He is not the master of Syria, although after Putin, for you a dictator or a Tsar is the best thing that can be. And it is you who do not care about PEOPLE. You'd better take a look at your bombings in Syria, and then make a hypocrite about "BLOOD".
            The Russian Federation still has not recognized a single killed peaceful Syrian.

        Do noble elven bombs fall exclusively on barmaley and dictatorial minions? smile



        101 civilians in the building were killed, and four more died in a nearby building. According to him, 36 civilians remain missing.

          Raqqa seems to have been the capital of IS .. Are you for IS? During the war, it so happens that civilians become hostages ..
          The Russian Federation also bombed cities, but for some reason they do not show about it.
          Although the Americans even more admit they are killing civilians (this is) and even pay compensation. RF NEVER EVER. This is the main difference between the US and the Russian Federation. RF is silent or lying to itself. The US is open, they recognize, they investigate, and they pay.

            I am for those who are fighting against IS, by the way Assad is among them. So you are calling for help from IS and to overthrow Assad?

            During the war, it so happens that civilians become hostages ..

            Hostages? Read the link above .... they mixed up ... they wanted to kill snipers with almost the entire block turned into dust. Is it customary to free hostages? A land mine on the top of the head?

            The Russian Federation also bombed cities, but for some reason they do not show about it.

            Of course it bombed, and I wouldn't even be surprised if I find out about accidental victims, anything can happen in a war, but just like that, indiscriminately equalize the quarters ... Don't insult the Russian pilots. I doubt you can give a real example. Just don't poke me with propaganda like white helmets. Is there a real case investigated?

            Although the Americans even more admit they are killing civilians (this is) and even pay compensation. RF NEVER EVER.

            And what should they pay for? They don't kill them.

            RF is silent or lying to itself. The US is open, they recognize, they investigate, and they pay.

            Are they openly admitted? And where should they go? laughing Remind you for what Manning was convicted? (I am at a loss with the correct spelling, he does not know it now or she what ). They have something to pay and repent for. And so everywhere. Here's an example of how Australians work in Afghanistan. And what are your guys doing there not interested?

    The position of Russia is apparently not to interfere with either Israel or the United States. If this is not a half-betrayal, then what?

      It is not a desire to drag chestnuts out of the fire for others. It is not our task to ensure an Iranian presence in Syrian territory.
