muraselon

Sources in Tartus report that the Russian Navy has begun to attack terrorist targets somewhere in Damascus Governorate with cruise missiles.

Sources claim to hear the sound of the missiles passing over the Syrian port city – the passing noise appears to be going southwards to the Damascus area.

At the same time the Russian and Syrian air forces are also attacking militants and their positions and equipment in East Ghouta.

One source has said that it is possible that the missiles are targeting terrorists in the Eastern Qalamoun mountains.

Because YPG and PKK are marxist, therefore godless according to jihadis.

YPG fought and died defending their land and people. Isnt it nice of roosrakshaksto take potshots at them after the roosis themselves ran away from Afrin? Did they fear the same ass whipping that Russian pilot of Su-24 got in 2015?
Jab picchwaade mein dum nahi hai , why act like a boss and send your troops to Afrin, only to run away from fight later?!

in similar terrain the hezbollah was able to fight the idf to a stalemate

Israel never intended to occupy any territory. And after the war Nasrallah was crying anyway. Not to mention the regular pleadings to UN for a ceasefire, which were ignore by Israel.

>>YPG fought and died defending their land and people

token resistance only, aupcharikta ke liye. where the vaunted 1500 or 3000 reinforcements from manbij side vanished and what they achieved is unknown atleast from pro rojava twitterers.
a few potshots with ATGMs were achieved, for sure...but hardly any concerted attack on the turks

without any form of artillery, they never had a chance. all this was known to YPG, they have combat experience and ability to call on seasoned PKK fighters....i guess they played a high stakes baiting game vs assad and lost when he did not blink but let the situation slide. perhaps they expected their sufferings to goad the americans sitting in manbij to act, to atleast enforce a no-fly zone over afrin, but americans are in love with Incirlik....

now with Sultan having the bone in his teeth he is unlikely to withdraw from there easily, and his on-field bandits will ethnically cleanse the area and resettle themselves, uighurs etc just as they did in al-bab and jarablous belt.

Root for the Jews if you like. I’m cheering for the team that’s killing jihadists, not backing them.

The Israelis made the tactical decision, years ago, to join team Saudi along with the US. That’s why the Jews back Sunni/Takfiri/Wahhabi types in Syria and Lebanon. The Saudi agenda affects us, as Pakistan is solidly on their team. In the great game of Sunni expansion worldwide, Pakistan is the key pawn in their S. Asian theatre. In the big picture, Israel is not on our side. Instinctively, I want to back them but in reality, the Israelis are working against our interests.

An amazing post. Jews are behind all evil. Well, the pakis say the same thing.
Instinctively I also want to back Roos, China, Iran but end up backing Pakistan instead because in the south Asian context Pakistanis are connected to Roos via China.

Yeah Yeah, its all YPGs fault that the Kurds live next to a jihadi state supported by Russia and America. It was also Yazidis` fault that they were enslaved, murdered, raped.
Bang on you are. Their feeble resistance deserves mocking. Well done.

The poor Turds, Yezdis et al have time and again been shafted by external powers.They should've instead increased their territorial control by incremental means and played their newfound external " friends" the Paki/ ISI way in Afghanistan.

Turkey's foray into Syrian territory in the long run will be its albatross. It will invite continuous sniping attacks once its enemies regroup and use guerilla tactics.The have the example of " Orenz of Araby" as to how to singe the beard of the Ottoman!

Doubt this. Erdogan will be using jihadis against the Kurds. The battle of Kobane being fought all over again.
This time the new version of ISIS will have overt turkish support with tacit understanding of Russia and US.
Yes, the turks will suffer, mostly economic and social problems, like the Pakis, in the long run. But since when has that mattered to jihadis like Erdogan. As long as the wimmen there can produce sufficient yahoos, all can live like rats, for all that matters.

The Syrian army has discovered a secret workshop in Eastern Ghouta that was used to produce various military-grade chemicals, according to the SANA news agency.

The footage showing a plant full of high-tech equipment located in the town of al-Shefounieh t in Eastern Ghouta has been released by the state-run news agency. The clandestine workshop was used by terrorists, presumably Jaysh al-Islam militant group, papers of which were also discovered at site, to manufacture chemical munitions with equipment allegedly of Saudi origin and materials ostensibly made in Western countries. Chlorine was among the other toxic chemicals found at the building.

Kalin also said Turkey expected Turkish forces and its rebel allies to clear Syria’s Afrin town of militants “very soon” and added that Ankara had no intention of handing over the town to the Syrian government following the completion of its military offensive in the region.

His two most memorable moments occurred when an unidentified aircraft parachuted food and water supplies, and when the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) rescued the Yazidis at Sinjar, exchanging gunfire with Daesh fighters and opening a path for Yazidis to escape.
“Without the PKK, we might have died at Sinjar,” Jalal says. The majority of interviewees at Sharya Camp echoed his sentiment.

https://www.fairobserver.com/region/mid ... sis-42300/

The only ones who fought to save the Yazidis, now being sold down the river by Russia and Amreeka.
And Roos-rakshaks here are`supporting` their persecution by appropriately timed reminders of how Kurds had been complicit in genocides themselves centuries ago, right after Russia made a deal with jihadi Erdogan.
And by mocking their resistance to fight off the jihadi hordes supported by Putin to defend their women and children.
Amazing!!! :roll:

If A=B it does not immediately follow that C=D. Some conspiracies are true; some aren’t. It just requires a bit of critical thought. Too complicated for you?
