Assad in Tehran: Soleimani’s goons snatched him to swear allegiance to Khamenei. Putin retaliates

Al Qods Brigades, the Iranian Rev Guards’ external wing, “brought” Syrian ruler Bashar Assad to Tehran on Feb. 27, for an audience with supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. This was revealed on Wednesday, March 6, by Al Qods deputy chief Brig.-Gen Esmaeil Qaani in an interview with Iranian media. Assad arrived alone without aides – a sign that he did not come voluntarily. And, indeed, Qaani also admitted that “his men accompanied Assad” all the way to Tehran, another sign that he was virtually snatched for the trip.   DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources, who followed this revelation, discovered that Assad was bundled onto an Iranian plane and flown directly to a Revolutionary Guards air base in western Tehran. The only official on hand to receive the Syrian president was Al Qods chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who never left his side throughout the visit.

The only Iranian advised of his arrival was supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Assad later met President Hassan Rouhani, who was surprised to find the Syrian ruler in Tehran. All the photos and videos of the visit showed Assad on his own without the usual Syrian aides.
Our sources report that the entire purpose of this virtual abduction was to force the Syrian ruler to bend the knee and kiss the hand of Ayatollah Khamenei, a gesture tantamount to an oath of allegiance to Iran’s supreme leader. Assad became the only Arab ruler to swear allegiance to the Shiite revolutionary ruler of Iran. He was not given much choice.
Having discovered how Tehran forced Bashar Assad to its will, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who two days later, on Feb. 27, sat down in Moscow with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and IDF Military chief Maj. Gen. Tamir Hayman, granted Israel a free hand to attack Iranian targets in Syria. Putin also invited Israel to accept its first role in the military and political processes ongoing in Syria.
According to our sources, Iran is not taking the Russian concessions to Israel lying down. Assad is being subjected to brutal pressure from Tehran to declare Israel’s attacks on Iranian sites in his country tantamount to attacks on Syrian targets, and to issue a strong warning that Damascus and Tehran will initiate payback.

    Comments containing incitement, libel or offensive language are barred under DEBKAfile’s regulations, and DEBKAfile’s itself is using word “goons” which is itself offensive. This is what sold out media people do at the hand of world’s no. 1 PROVEN TERRORIST and CRIMINAL who never use this word for its masters who have been doing GANGSTERISM from Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Palestine, Vietnam, Haiti, Elsalvador, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and now in Venezuela and getting ready to do GANGSTERISM in Nicaragua.

      All of those places you mentioned: Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Palestine, Vietnam, Haiti, Elsalvador, Afghanistan, Iraq, . . . needed a good dose of present day, . . . military spanking. One day, . . . in the not too distant future, . . . what was done in Bresden will look like an afternoon picnic to what Tehran will be then, . . . and if there is any argument, . . . Mecca and Medina could easily be next on the bucket list.

        Once the antisemite squatter colony manages to murder all the unarmed (semitic) Palestinian children protesting, it will take on Russia and China and Iran and … El Salvador (?)! This despite having no means to deliver a “military spanking” against anyone tougher than AhedTamimi!

        you disgusting lowlife vermin are on a one way trip. When the Lord haShem is finished with you there won’t be a potsherd large enough to scoop some water from a ditch

        And He hath broken it As the breaking of the potters’ bottle, Beaten down — He doth not spare, Nor is there found, in its beating down, A potsherd to take fire from the burning, And to draw out waters from a ditch.

      The “G” word is now the latest on P.C banned words list? See the definitions for ‘goon’ and you tell us Mr. smart Anis Sayani if the word fits kidnapping thugs. Is “thugs” OK?

      And don’t forget the American Railroad CB & Q had #4000 “Aeolous”. A 100mph 4-6-4 steam locomotive nicknamed “Sweet Alice the Goon…. The people with the best sense of humor always prevail.

      Where is “Palestine”? No such Nation. There is a “Palestinian Authority”, an Arab Autonomous set of areas in the Nation-State of Israel, but no, there is no Nation-State of “Palestine. That is a Latin name for the south Levant, used as a regional area name, just as “Mesopotamia” is used. A name you cannot even pronoounce in Arabic. Why would any real nationality call itself a name that cannot even be pronounced in their native language?

        Text of the Balfour Declaration:

        “His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object.”

        “Israel” only exists because the UN said it did. The antisemitic land-grabbers should be on their knees thanking the UN for their fake state’s existence.

          Palestine was named on top of Judea by the Roman Empire following insurrection by the tribute Judeans. anyone with a library can determine this fact. It is also known that Judeans were once rulers of the people of Canaan who preceded the “Israelite” conquest. These same people existed in the same region from Canaan to Judea to Palestine. Judeans once ruled under Roman law were expelled by Rome and were returned by other powerful nations to rule again their Judean province. It is Judean will to be in their historic land following the holocaust. The rest is our modern drama to unfold.

            As I wrote: The whiteboy welfare state of NON-SEMITIC squatters sent from Europe is 100% the product of the United Nations in 1947.

            They were sent to steal the land of SEMITES.

            Meanwhile, Palestine has a presence on world maps for millennia.

    This development is pregnant with consequences, both positive and/or negative for the Jewish state – depending on whether the present leadership, with all its foibles will remain in place,
    or the blabbermouth quartet of former “sorry-generals” would be instated after the elections…

    Ah, I’m so worked up again, just at the sight of these scary men who can pound our faces in! Just like mommy and daddy told me long ago, find yourself a piggy and let him take you from behind. It’s a great relief. I don’t think for a second about medics or children in their teens to murder. All I think about is the sweet, sweet lovin of a piggie inside me.

      The problem with you people injecting Botox in your testicles to have a more masculine look is this side effect of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, where afflicted persons repeat words like “BooKosher” and often perform intimate erotic acts with one of the parent’ shoes while masturbating vigorously for hours and hours.

    the jews and ameerican are just stupid
    they started 2003 the iraq war, they destroyed iraqi state , iraq fall to iran
    they started 2011 the war against syria and destroyed the syrian state, the syria fall to iran.

    without war in syria and iraq , the qos forces would be stay home

        Ah, 911: NuttyYahoo’s proudest moment, when all his dreams came true.

        With one false flag, he helped compel Uncle Sam into fighting losing wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria!

        Without the NuttyYahoo false flag, there’s probably no resistance axis of Russia, China and Iran lined up against a bankrupt, dying empire…

    The Iranians are under great pressure from the sanctions. The Iranian leadership pretends to be tough and in charge when really they are in dire condition. The current 1979 Iranian regime will be toppled soon and the Iranian People will be set free to achieve their true potential.

    Wow, who would have thought that Persia and Babylon would be this prominent 30 years ago? Golan heights towers above Armageddon, or megiddo, Syria is the focal point, and Russia will eventually guarantee Israel’s safety. All the pieces are in place. Read your Bible, a real war is about to happen.

  • Mar 11, 2019 @ 19:49 at 19:49

    Apparently the trip took place on February 25th. The article is a typo. Since the talks of Putin and Netanyahu were in two days, that is, on February 27.
