Lavrov spoke about Washington's warning about a strike on Syria


February 25, United States Air Force inflicted air strikes on the Syrian regions bordering Iraq. The action by the American military was a response to pro-Iranian groups for armed provocations in Iraq. According to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, Washington warned the Russian side of the strikes only a few minutes before they started.


Our military was warned four or five minutes before the air strikes

- noted the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The Pentagon statement indicated that the order for the strikes by the US Air Force came personally from Joseph Biden. The attacked objects belonged to pro-Iranian forces operating in the area of ​​the Syrian border town of Al-Bukamal, which occupies an important military-strategic position. The attack was directed at fighters of the Tehran-backed groups Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid al-Shuhada. The Americans attacked three trucks with ammunition arriving from Iraqi territory.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights NGO, 17 militias who fought on the side of the Syrian government were killed in the American strikes.

    Well, now it became clear why the Israeli attack on the pro-Iranian militants, announced by me yesterday night, did not take place. The bank of goals had already been approved, preparations were underway, but the attack, for unknown reasons, did not take place. The answer lies in the events of this night. And as a result, all the same pro-Iranian militants of the "peaceful" Hezbollah organization.


    One of the murdered members of Hezbollah - "Salam Zayed"

    However, it is already possible to publish the place of the attack itself. The destroyed sheds where the militants were located are no longer of any interest to anyone.


    However, immediately after the attacks, the commander of the 9th Air Force, part of the US Central Air Force (CENTCOM), arrived in Israel, Lieutenant General Greg Guyot visited Israel amid reports of an American airstrike against Iranian targets in Syria. According to the press service of the IDF, he arrived in the afternoon, February 26.
    Guyot was met by the commander of the Israeli Air Force, Major General Amikam Norkin. According to an IDF official, the purpose of the visit of the commander of the US 9th Air Force was to advance operational interests, develop channels of cooperation, and maintain and deepen relations between the military.

      For amateurs who “see everything from above”, I suggest looking at the picture of the incident from above too.

      Imam Ali's base was also attacked.

      In general, after watching a heap of videos, I got a strong feeling that in all this mess only the fence stood with honor. Although it is covered with holes the size of an arm in diameter, it resisted.


      And this is not a festive event for the opening of a new school, but a funeral. The colors of the flag of the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades militia, which is located near Iran, are noticeable at the yellow-green event.

        And this is Israel's gay pride parade. The presence of the rainbow color at this colorful event is noticeable, by modern standards, not far from Iran.

        What year was the picture taken and how many terrorists are there? I don’t know myself. laughing

          And how does this relate to the discussion of this article? I provided materials that directly related to the data on the impact and confirmations. You, in the absence of any information, and no idea what the whole speech is about, as in previous posts, the desire to at least seem to be well versed in something. By the way, the photo you just attached is from an article about homophobia against the background of the murder of an LGBT teenager. I see that I was still right in my assumptions that the less you understand something, the more you want to show that you at least understand something in the realities of Israel ... Although, your associations are clear at the level of colors pictures, no more. Well, at least you have succeeded in something, and noticed something similar in the photo about the funeral of the Hezbollah militant and the gay parade.

    Until recently, Israeli newspapers wrote about Biden's attempts to establish a dialogue with Iran and return to the nuclear deal.

    It does not seem to grow together. Iran does not agree with the terms and is generally going to the EAEU.

    What do these Iranians think of themselves? Do they want nuclear technology? What a cheek am
    Meanwhile, an interesting pool with balls was built at the nuclear reactor in Dimona, apparently to reduce evaporation. This reactor does not bother anyone. This is different winked


    And the Middle East is still raging. The explosion on an Israeli cargo ship (auto transporter) in the Gulf of Oman, the reasons are not reported, as always under the suspicion of the Iranians.


    https://www.mako.co.il/news-world/2021_q1/Article-432613f7abed771026.htm

    Whether these events are related or not, one can only guess.

      The information is not entirely correct. If tomorrow there is an explosion on the yacht of some Russian oligarch, can this be called an attack on a Russian ship? And this is a cargo ship owned by an Israeli, but not an Israeli.



      Israeli businessman Rami Unger (pictured), the owner of a ship damaged by an explosion in the Gulf of Oman last night, told Israeli Channel 11:
      The explosion occurred last night south of the Strait of Hormuz off the coast of Oman. The damage is two holes with a diameter of about one and a half meters, but it is not yet clear to us whether it was caused by rocket attacks or mines attached to the ship. According to Unger, there is no damage to the engine or injuries among the crew members. The ship will return north and arrive tomorrow morning at a port in the UAE to check its condition. We do not know if this incident was part of tensions between Iran and the United States, or if it is related to the fact that the ship is owned by an Israeli.
      Helios Ray Ltd flew under the flag of the Bahamas. This is reported by the portal of the company Dryad Global, engaged in maritime security, with reference to information received from the British Navy.

      Helios Ray Ltd is registered on the Isle of Man, considered the crown domain of the British Crown. Israel's Transport Ministry said it had no information on any Israeli vessel that was damaged in any way in the Gulf of Oman. At the same time, the Fifth Fleet of the US Navy, based in Bahrain, confirmed that it is aware of the incident and is monitoring the situation.

        There is a link under the comment. If you think the information is incorrect, write to the editor hi This they write - the ship belongs to an Israeli company. In this case, what flag is it under? Besides, I am not claiming that this is an attack. The explosion on the ship ... the Iranians are suspected ...
        And I, like Rami Unger, do not know whether these events are connected or not.
        The photo is good. good It looks like the source of the explosion was outside the vessel and above the waterline. Reminds of shelling, don't you think? It doesn't look like a torpedo. It is not comfortable to place mines on the move, I put them on rockets.

          Sorry, simple question: do you read Hebrew? Never rely on auto-translators. I have provided you with information from the Israeli channel Kan11, provided in Hebrew in translation, which I myself checked and edited. If you used someone's message with their translation, then it is on their conscience and the direction of the message.

          As for the source of the explosion, I think it is worth providing another photograph, where it is clearly seen that the hole is clearly above the waterline. Therefore, I am more inclined to believe that the attack was carried out with a rocket.

              Hopefully, a little more photos will be able to dispel your doubts that this was only a mock attack. Although, judging by your previous messages, Israel is to blame everywhere. I already know this hi


              According to preliminary estimates in Israel, the explosion that damaged the ship of an Israeli businessman in the Gulf of Oman was an attempted terrorist attack initiated by Iran.

            Sorry, simple question: do you read Hebrew?

            What are you, of course not request Somehow I was trying to get into Arabic, a real breakdown of the brain. belay From right to left, the absence of vowels, instead of vowels, metamorphoses of letters at the beginning and end of a word, different positions in height in lines, etc. Now it is enough for me to see the test from right to left, the desire to delve into it automatically disappears.

            And what is the inaccuracy? The ship is a vessel and the owner of the company is Israeli, an explosion in the Gulf of Oman.

            Thanks for the photo. As I understand it, the top photo is an outside view? Is the second "hole" identical?

              The owner is an Israeli, the ship does not belong to Israel and does not receive tax revenues from this possession.
              As for auto-translators, as I said, you should never rely on them. I come across many articles that say that this is an Israeli ship. And I can say with full confidence that their messages were originally translated incorrectly. A simple example of an incorrect translation done by me with the help of a translator.




              As you can see, the ship changes ownership from an Israeli to an Israeli ship. By the way, the same thing happens with the English translation))) With full respect) hi

                Is it that important in this case? If the citizens were planning to drill holes in an Israeli ship, do you think it was not enough for them that the owner is an Israeli citizen and the company is Israeli? Do you think they studied accounting, looked at tax receipts?
                Or are you leaning towards the version that the attackers against the Boghama Islands are sharpening their teeth?
                The automatic translator, of course, messes up, that's why I attach links, you can see, check. But in my opinion in this case it is not important. hi

Infrastructures, Avraham Hirshzon, Minister of Finance. So you are fundamentally wrong when you write:

                    The eighth president ... Should I add Churbanov to the list? smile
                    In Russia, crime penetrates less into the upper echelons of power. up to the ministerial levelwinked Minister Ulyukaev, governors Khoroshavin, Belov, ex-governors of the Ivanovo region Konkov and Men, ex-governor of the Jewish Autonomous Region Vinnikov, Khabarovsk Furgal, ex-head of the Republic of Mari El Markelov, Udmurtia Soloviev, Chelyabinsk region Yuryev, Republic of Komi Gaizer and Torlopov, Bryansk region Denin, Novosibirsk region Yurchenko, Tula Dudka. Senator Arashukov and so on little things ..

                    More than 5,7 thousand high-ranking officials have responded in court for corruption crimes since 2011
