LATEST : The suspicion that Russian troops are already fighting on the ground in Syria is corroborated by The Times of London 3 Sept. 2015 , Deutsche Wirtschaftsnachrichten 4 Sept. 2015, and The Telegraph 3 Sept. 2015 which adds: The White House said, however, that it would welcome Russia’s involvement in the international coalition established to counter Islamic State and in diplomatic efforts to end the brutal civil war.
The following is from an Israeli Mossad outlet – disinformation can therefore not be excluded.
But the much quoted Oryx Blog on 29 Aug. 2015 brought strong indications that Russian troops are already fighting on the ground on Asssad´s side. A former US officer said to “The Daily Beast”1 Sept. 2015: “I’m being told things like, ‘We really can’t talk about this.’ That indicates to me that there’s some truth to these allegations.”
The article from Ynet was brought by The Pentagon Earlybird News acc. to Veterans Today 1 Sept. 2015. VT calls the story a fake – without any reason given. BUT VT also writes:”We have confirmed, the Pentagon actually believes this”.
But if it is a fake Mossad must have some probably sinister reason to disqualify its own outlets for ever.
DEBKAfile 1 Sept. 2015: Despite strong denials from Moscow, Russian airborne troops are preparing to land in Syria to fight Islamic State forces. The surprise attack on Monday, Aug. 31, by ISIS forces on the Qadam district of southern Damascus, in which they took over parts of the district – and brought ISIS forces the closest that any Syrian anti-Assad group has ever been to the center of the Syrian capital – is expected to accelerate the Russian military intervention.
Moscow is certainly not ready to endanger the position of President Bashar Assad or his rule in Damascus, and views it as a red line that cannot be crossed.
Debkafile’s military sources report that discussions by the Russo-Syrian Military Commission, which was established last month in Moscow to coordinate the intervention, accelerated during the last few days.
Our intelligence sources point out that the concerted activities of the commission are taking place amid the nearly complete paralysis of the US Central Command-Forward-Jordan (CCFJ) to coordinate operations against the rebels in southern Syria. Officers from Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel are attached to the CCFJ.
Most of the operations of the CCFJ have been halted due to a conflict that erupted between the Syrian rebels and the U.S. Central Command, CENTCOM. The US military is opposed to the rebels cooperating with Al-Qaeda-linked groups, such as the Al-Nusra front, while the rebels claim that this cannot be avoided for they are to defeat the forces of Bashar Assad and Hizballah.
In recent weeks, the Russians have taken four military steps related to Syria:
1. On Aug. 18, six of Russia’s advanced MIG-31 Foxhound interceptor aircraft landed at the Syrian Air Force’s Mezze Airbase. They were immediately followed by giant Russian Antonov AN-124 Condor cargo planes carrying 1,000 of Russia’s 9M133 Kornet anti-tank missiles.
The advanced jets are intended to serve as air support for the Russian units that arrive in Syria.
2. Before the Russian planes landed in Damascus, Moscow reached an agreement with Washington for the removal of NATO’s Patriot missile batteries from Turkey. The removal was carried out gradually during the month of August, thus preventing the possibility that NATO Patriot missiles could hit Russian fighters carrying out operations in Syrian airspace.
3. During the last week of August, a large number of Russian troops, mostly logistical teams whose job is to lay the groundwork for the arrival of the combat units, arrived in Syria.
4. Our intelligence sources also report that Moscow has started to supply Damascus with satellite imagery of the ground situation on the different fronts.
Debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report that all of these preparatory steps by Moscow for the introduction of ground forces are being carried out in coordination with Washington and Tehran.
The more that the three capitals tighten their coordination in support of Assad, the sooner the Russian intervention is expected to take place.
This turns everything upside down in the Middle East:
Obama has turned 180 degrees from his policy so far – if this is true.
The big loser seems to be Israel who can no longer bomb Syria at will without colliding with Russia. This may be Obama´s revenge for Netanyahu´s fiddling with US inner policy.
The Times of Israel 1. Sept. 2015 gave a hint: Iran has bolstered defenses at its nuclear facilities, introduced new radar systems, and “raised its alert” for fear of an Israeli attack, an Israeli television report said Tuesday evening.
Or it may be part of the NWO plan to isolate Israel to trigger the final war – see the Albert Pike/William Carr plan.
Will the US Israel-Lobby and its Republican stooges let Obama get away alive with this “treachery”?
