During the past three days, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies entered up to 40 villages and settlements in the southern provinces of Quneitra and Daraa after militants, mostly members of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) had surrendered in the area.
A few batches of radical militants and their families, consisting of dozens of buses, already left southern Syria towards the militant-held part of Idlib province. Militants also handed over more than 10 battle tanks to the SAA. On July 23, militants continued surrendering weapons to government forces and leaving towards Idlib.
Israel transported several hundred of the White Helmets and their families from the southwestern part of Syria to Jordan overnight July 21, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) reported saying this move was “a humanitarian effort” at the request of the US and European countries.
According to Jordan’s official Petra state media outlet, the number of evacuated persons included 800 White Helmets members and their families.
The IDF claimed Israel engaged in the “out of the ordinary” move due to the “immediate risk” to the lives of the civilians from the ongoing military operation in the area.
The White Helmets is an infamous Western-backed organization, which according to Syrian, Russian and Iranian governments as well as to independent researchers, has been involved in staging chemical attacks and other propaganda operations in order to assist the US-led block in its attempts to overthrow the Assad government. The organization operates only within the militant-held area, in a close cooperation with Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.
One of the most prominent cases of the White Helmets operations is the Douma chemical incident on April 7, 2018, which was used by the US, France and the UK to justify a massive missile strike on Syria on April 14.
According to Syrian experts, the key goal of the evacuation of the White Helmets members is to not allow forces of the Syrian-Russian-Iranian alliance to question members of the organization over its activities coordinated with Western intelligences.
The repeatedly declared Israeli “noninvolvement” in the conflict continued on July 22 when four senior FSA commanders in southern Syria run away to Israel. Syrian opposition activists identified them as “Moaz Nassar,” the leader of the Golan Knights Brigade, “Ahmed al-Nahs,” a commander in the Saif al-Sham Brigades, “Alaa al-Halaki,” the leader of the al-Ababil Army and “Abu Rateb Nassar,” a commander in the Golan Knights Brigade.
Over the past few years, these armed groups have been repeatedly accused by the Damascus government of cooperating with the Israeli military and intelligence. Their evacuation is another sign that Israel and its allies are attempting to hide some of their operations in the war-torn country.
Russian forces intercepted at least two armed UAVs over the Khmeimim Air Base on July 20 and 21. Drones were launched by militants from the so-called de-escalation zone area, which includes Idlib and northern Latakia.
The continued attacks by militants on the Russian facilities in Syria are only nearing the Russian-backed SAA advance to put an end to this attacks and the presence of terrorists excluded from the ceasefire, like Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, in the area.
I am pleased to see that the propaganda-intelligence show known as the White Helmets are being sent out of Syria. Their sole job was spying and promulgating propaganda lies. When Aleppo was liberated, the civilians stated they did not see a single White Helmet.So much for their “humanitarian”work.
Yes, because the IDF is well known for its humanitarian work amongst arab civilians. They just can’t help themselves being such great guys.
The new civilian Israeli laws that confirm, officially subscribe and formalize the apartheid state are a giant proof of their humanitarian objectives vis-a-vis the palestines and nearby arab dwellers.
By the way did any journalist, news service or other source SINCE 2012 revealed or broadcasted any, pifious single attack of ISIS, THS and ‘rebels’ AGAINST any Israeli position or interests in the Syrian and nearby areas?
They did once, but it was purely in error, so the head-choppers quickly apoligized.
It just goes to prove the spurious nature of their “revolution”.
ISIS operatives were Zionist foot-soldiers all along. Which should come as no surprise to anyone.
If God was perspicuous, he would have called them “God’s chosen moral retards”.
He did exactly that through the mouth of Jesus Christ. Alway good at this time to have a clear understanding of exactly why Jesus came down so hard on the pharisaic cult. Moral retards who have no authentic Jewish honor, egoists who place their own minds above God. God as a source of their own social power. It’s all in there. No need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to discerning this particular organization of evil.
“who have no authentic Jewish honor”
In your opinion, did that only ever exist before the birth of Christ?
National Public Radio (NPR) USA:
White Helmets evacuated to Jordan; 800, but only 400 made it, source doesn’t know what has happened to the 400 not successful in crossing into Jordan, very concerned about their safety; very difficult trip around the “front lines,” have to avoid ISIS (or terrorists?) and also “regime” forces; Question:why regime forces? because W.H. often “films” their rescue activities and shows films of regime destruction and gas attacks; there are thousands more W.H.s in Syria and a lot of concern for their safety. They will be resettled in Britain, ???, and Canada. Not in US, because Donald Trump’s immigration policies. [I wrote this, a summary of the piece on All Things Considered, from memory shortly after it was on my radio. Their source, who they were interviewing, was some guy who claimed to know.]
I can’t swear to this, but I don’t think that Israel was mentioned once in the entire piece. I also did not hear WHO is doing the evacuating of the White Helmets. Over the weekend NPR did a similar piece, quite long with lots of bragging on the W.H. and mention of their Oscar for the short documentary film. NPR seems very heavy into White Helmets.
That’s National Propaganda Radio for you.
Very informative SF report. Excellent job.
White Helmets rescue op clearly showed who pay-rolled them – Russian Foreign Ministry
“The rescue operation, which emerged Sunday, “speaks for itself” and clearly shows who exactly the group serves, the ministry said in a statement on Monday, calling its members “pseudo-humanitarians.” Some 422 of them were picked by the Israeli military and transferred to Jordan after the evacuation was requested by the US, Canada and some European countries. It has emerged that a total of 800 people were expected to be pulled out initially.
“It’s well known, that the White Helmets had their hand in the most notorious false flag operations during the Syrian conflict. They acted exclusively on territories under the control of Islamic radicals, staged blatant falsifications, which were used then as a pretext to raise accusations against the Syrian authorities,” the ministry stated.
The evacuated White Helmets are now expected to be resettled in a number of Western countries, namely Canada, Germany, France and some others. The US, while welcoming the evacuation of White Helmets in a statement penned by the State Department, didn’t seem to be in a rush to welcome its members on its soil.
“It’s symbolic that the White Helmets preferred to flee Syria with foreign assistance, showing their true colors and hypocrisy to the world,” the ministry said, adding that the “evacuation” of the White Helmets “clearly showed whose orders they were carrying out, and who pay-rolled them.”
This is the same Israel that shot dead close to 200 unarmed Palestinian protestors and wounded almost 20,000 recently.
Steeped in the blood of the innocents, they now try to float this humanitarian BS about rescuing trapped “civillians”.
The White Helmet operatives facilitated terrorism across the length and breadth of Syria and did so with the backing of Israel and the US et al.
And the zionist-controlled MSM laps up this drivel and spew it onto the rest of us.
Who would have thought that those consumate murders would have a “bleeding heart”?
How will we know for sure when the whi helmets comence operations in the USA?
There are some good news embedded in the bad ones. As Leonard Cohen said in Anthem:
There is a crack,a crack in everything,that’s how the light gets in!
Russia’s embassy in the Netherlands welcomed the White Helmets’ departure. “Definitely there will be less chances of new so-called #CW (chemical weapon) attacks in Syria after forced evacuation by the collective West of the notorious #WhiteHelmets,” it tweeted.
True, moving the white helmets mercs to israel’s colonies will make it rather difficult for the white helmets to stage false flag terrorism in Syria. On the other hand, they could provide an additional pool of willing agents for zionazi false flag incidents in the israeli colonies.
These white helmets going to the colonies are likely just low level foot soldiers and slaves (“families”), the more useful mercs, along with their israeli, nato special forces leaders will be going to new jobs.
Maybe some will be reinserted into the northern Syrian regions still occupied by israel’s minions. They then creating a new front group, perhaps to be called the white codpieces or white top hats?
“There is a crack,a crack in everything,that’s how the light gets in!”
Leonard Cohen should have known. He was a high-level Jewish Mafia asset. He even might have assisted fellow Jewish Mafia assent Bob Dylan with some of his more memorable lyrics.
Pi = 4 by Miles Mathis
He definitely knew that the ‘dice were loaded’, like ‘everybody’ else.
“Russia’s embassy in the Netherlands welcomed the White Helmets’ departure”
It’s a generic embassy message – here’s the equivalent on the Russian embassy website in Israel
“Yesterday 442 #White_Helmets militants and their family members were evaquated from South-West #Syria. At least there is one positive consequence. A chance that White Helmets will use chlorine in order to stage a chemical provocation in South-West Syria has decreased.”
Problem is, on Saturday 21st July they also provided this message https://twitter.com/israel_mid_ru/status/1020669041374089217
“On July 20,#Shoigu,Russian Minister of Defence,held 📞conversation w/ @AvigdorLiberman,Defence Minister of #Israel. The sides discussed 🇷🇺🇮🇱coop b/w defence departments+exchanged views on situation in southwest #Syria &other topical issues of regional security in #MiddleEast”
On the previous day they provided this https://twitter.com/israel_mid_ru/status/1020297330166325249
“Amb.#Viktorov to Rossiya 24 TV Channel: #Russia and #Israel reached understanding of how #Syria territories, adjacent to Israel, will look like for Israel. There are specific agreements. Such negotiations are held to mutual satisfaction of parties”
and on 20th Nov 2017 this https://twitter.com/israel_mid_ru/status/932560891203252224
“Russia’s Ambassador to Israel Alexander #Shein on #Amman Memorandum and #Iran presence in #Syria http://bit.ly/2zXxJln
Regarding the Memorandum signed in Amman on November 8, 2017, it should be mentioned, first and foremost, this document is confidential and, secondly, is of a technical and operational nature defining measures needed to establish the Southern de-escalation zone. I would like to note that there is no reason to overestimate the significance of the Memorandum to national security interests of Israel. Russia respects the Israeli concerns in the field of national security“
I wonder how much oil is under the Golan.
Syrian army forces find Israeli-made medicine in militant field hospital in Quneitra
“Syrian government forces have uncovered a considerable amount of Israeli-made medicine and medical supplies in a field hospital belonging to foreign-sponsored Takfiri militants in the country’s strategic southwestern province of Quneitra.
Local sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, told Syria’s official news agency, SANA, that army soldiers made the discovery in the town of Naba al-Sakher on Monday as they were conducting a clean-up operation in the area to beef up security and stability and prepare repatriation of local residents.
The sources added that the field hospital had several operating rooms, laboratory equipment and medical supplies in addition to a warehouse, where large quantities of Israeli- and Jordanian-made medicine were being kept.
Takfiri militants in Naba al-Sakher had turned one of the town’s schools into a field hospital to treat their wounded comrades.”
that field hospital could also been used to harvest organs
from dead or near-dead ISIS headchoppers.
I have no info about this nor have I read about it anywhere else (for now)
but if you extrapolate from past behavior – the Ukrainian conscripts’ mass graves,
the Yellow house in Kosovo, etc…. it wouldnt surprise me a bit.
The Syrian authorities should take a closer look into this.
The Extermination of Israel’s ISIS in the Yarmouk Basin.
“Nice piece of detail on the evacuation of the al Qaeda terrorists and the many operatives from GCC, Israel, US, UK, France, Canada and Turkey. As a wise fellow recently said:
“No country spends money to evacuate assets that are not useful or trained. The funds are unlimited, though, to evacuate trained assets (operatives), since it is very expensive to train them during the long military cycle”.
For Syrpers following the events in the south, the battle for Yarmouk basin is on and it is hot. A mix of Russian Navy cruise missiles and Syrian ballistic missiles were fired toward Yarmouk basin to hit ISIS bases and gathering points, Israel freaked out and activated its air defense systems but could not intercept the missiles that were aimed at ISIS all the time.
A large chunk of the northern part of the Yarmouk pocket was liberated overnight and during Monday, it borders the UNDOF line and the key village was Ghadir al Bustan, see map below.” (Cantham)
