Moscow: “US attack on Damascus is imminent”

Russia is claiming for the past ten days that the Trump administration is about to attack Syria because of the Assad army’s use of chemical poisons in East Ghouta. Washington has not addressed this claim one way or the other.
Tthe Russian General Staff  first warned “about an imminent attack in Syria” on Tuesday, March 13. The Chief of Russia’s General Staff, Gen. Valery Gerasimov, was quoted as saying that Russia has “reliable information about militants preparing to falsify a government chemical attack against civilians,” and warning that Russia would “respond to a US strike on Syria, if the lives of Russian servicemen were threatened, targeting any missiles and launchers involved.”
Underlying the Russian general’s warning was a suggestion that Syrian rebels fighting in Al Ghouta would, or had, faked a Syrian chemical attack on civilians as the pretext for an American attack. Then, on March 17, Gen. Sergei Rudskoi, head of the main operations for Russia’s General Staff, amplified the claim by charging that the US had sent “a fleet of strike carriers to the Mediterranean and Red Sea carrying cruise missiles.” He added details: “This force is comprised of 7,500 army personnel, an aircraft carrier, at least one cruiser, destroyers and 65 to 70 aircraft.” Actual US military movements are confirmed by DEBKAfile’s military sources.  But Russian military sources go on to state that this armada “is ready to launch roughly 400 long-range Tomahawks against a target in the Middle East on any given day.”
To meet the US war threat articulated by Moscow, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report that, last week, the Russian air force landed at its Khmeimim air base in Syria a Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopter carrying a Rychag-AV active jamming station. This electronic package is capable of detecting and suppressing the electronic command-and-control systems and radars of surface-to-air and air-to-air missiles carried by aircraft, drones, land vehicles and surface ships within a 400km radius. The Rychag-AV station can moreover suppress diverse targets simultaneously, and function on board ships, aircraft and land vehicles, as well as helicopters.

The arrival of this advanced jamming station certainly beefs up Syrian defenses against sophisticated US and Israeli attacks. There is no word on how many of these stations were shipped to Syria. If properly spaced out on Syrian soil, they would be capable of disabling US military operations right across the country, from northern Iraq to the Mediterranean, and also interfere with Israeli military activity inside its northern border.

There has been no comment from American or Israel sources either to confirm or deny the Russian claims of the past ten days of an imminent US attack in Syria. Perhaps they are waiting to see what is behind them.

      Me hope not. Me think Israel must learn to live with thy neighbour. Make Peace not wAr. No one must use a very old book for claiming thy land. If thy WWIII breaks out no promised land for u.

        Good joke!Who attacked Israel again and again?If the Arab armys dindt start a war in 1948 all Arabs from this time where still in Israel.
        But the Arabs say to their “Brothers” that they should go for some weeks so the Arab bombs cnat kill them.After that they can came back and take the Jewish goods.

        And dont forget:ALL Arab Countries where made by Brits and French…

        the Lord G-d demands it.

        When the Lord accepts a person’s ways, He will cause even his enemies to make peace with him.

        זבִּרְצ֣וֹת יְ֖הוָה דַּרְכֵי־אִ֑ישׁ גַּם־א֜וֹיְבָ֗יו יַשְׁלִ֥ם אִתּֽוֹ:

        When the Lord accepts a person’s ways, He will cause even his enemies to make peace with him:

        He will appease [them] for him that they should make peace with him.

        Better a little with righteousness than great revenues with injustice.

        חטוֹב־מְ֖עַט בִּצְדָקָ֑ה מֵרֹ֥ב תְּ֜בוּא֗וֹת בְּלֹ֣א מִשְׁפָּֽט:

        How did you arrive at that strange conclusion? If you hadn’t noticed, Israel is under siege and has been for years. It can live with ANY neighbor as long as they don’t want to destroy it.

      • Mar 25, 2018 @ 11:14 at 11:14

        “Me think Israel must learn to live with thy neighbour. Make Peace not wAr.”


        Just out of curiosity, have you tried communicating that concept to any of Israel’s neighbors such as Syria, Lebanon or Gaza or even to such “neighborly organizations” like Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, ISSIS or the Al-Aksa Maurters Brigade before you singled out Israel?

        Isn’t it nice, Kriss, to live so far away from all of this and still be able to make a comment like that?

          Russia won’t fight you in Syria, you’re right, but you have no strategic depth and no forces for occupation. Your strength is only to sit still. Also, your ability to do the strike is being eroded day by day. Soon Lebanon’s airspace will be denied to you.

    Russia is fanning war hysteria mostly for the home usage, and to cover her own and Iran’s trucks. In regard to super jamming station on MI-8. Somebody with very approximate understanding of the matter, understands that jamming equipment is emitting electromagnetic waves easily detectable by SIGNIT, like say radio and radar installations. What could be detected easily could be eliminated by any radar seeking missile.

  • Mar 24, 2018 @ 22:34 at 22:34

    What makes Putin think that he can predict when the attack comes pure arrogance and the usual stupidity,The US has made it clear over the last month twice attacking Kremlin controlled forces and wiping them out that they are not at all intimidated by Russia or listening ,The Kremlin should pack its bags and leave while it still can,otherwise its dozen aircraft and scrap navel fleet will bot be there to evacuate them when they run away with there tails between there legs

    What Russia also said is that it would hit the source of where those missiles were fired from.

      Reality is: Russia will TRY to hit the source of where those missiles were fired from (assuming they have anything left to hit back with).

The reality inside Russia is so much different then it seems from outside. Russia and specially Putin and his crew, will never risk all the money and assets in the US and Western Banks:) This is just the Russian propaganda and internet trolls, to suggest all the Russian military might.

  • Mar 30, 2018 @ 15:08 at 15:08

    It is unfortunate in Syria that the U.S. through its inaction and action in some areas especially starting with the Obama administration has resulted in the Syrian opposition losing to Russia, Iran and its so called Resistance Axis. What the U.S. does and does not do in Syria affects what happens there just as much or even more than the combined Russian, Iranian and Shiite militant forces there as follows:

    1) The release of billions of dollars to Iran for the nuclear deal by the U.S. has resulted in Iran better financing, supplying and increasing the numbers of IRGC, AQ, Hezbollah, Iraqi, Afghan and Pakistani Shiite terrorist militias and militants in Syria. This money has also helped Iran pay Russia as well for their air force in Syria. Iran observed that when the ground Shiite militants were having trouble taking Ramadi in Iraq from ISIS, the U.S. air force made a difference in turning the tide there. This led to Iran getting the Russian air force later involved in Syria. After Saddam Hussein used scuds in 1991 somewhat effectively against Israel, Iran started a missile program and started to add them to Hezbollah’s arsenal against Israel as their main weapon.

    2) The sole focus for several years of the U.S. on only directly fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq has resulted in the decimation of ISIS and the strengthening of Iran and its allies in Syria and Iraq since instead of focusing on ISIS, which the U.S. was already doing, Iran and its allies were free to focus on the Syrian opposition instead. If Iran and its allies were left without any U.S. help to deal with ISIS, ISIS would have been a very formidable adversary against them. Since Obama decided to go after ISIS at all costs, the Iranians were handed an advantage that they have been exploiting ever since. It is only recently after ISIS has been greatly weakened that Iran and its allies have moved against ISIS in order to get as much territory as possible that ISIS had. Even after the Obama administration was implored at the end of last year to just bomb the Ithriya-Khanasser road to make it impassible since it was the only Assad regime link to the city of Aleppo, this was ignored which resulted in all of Aleppo falling to them.

    3) The U.S. refusal to arm the Syrian opposition with the heavy weapons that they need to offset the advantages that Assad and his Russia and Iranian allies have of being able to obtain almost any and every kind of weapon which they have already used against the Syrian opposition. The advantage that Assad and his allies have is air power which means that the Syrian opposition needs game changing weapons like MANPADS to deal with helicopters that keep dropping barrel bombs and other weapons which have been banned by the U.N. Iran keeps nothing from Hezbollah so why should anyone else keep anything from those fighting against Hezbollah?

    4) The U.S. arming of the Lebanese Army which throughout all of this has been Hezbollah’s steadfast ally in Lebanon. The Lebanese army has been making sure that no armed groups opposed to Hezbollah get to attack it in Lebanon. Thus, since most of Hezbollah is away fighting in Syria for Assad which is against the Taif Agreement that the Lebanese government signed of not getting involved in wars in other countries, the Lebanese army is protecting Hezbollah’s back and turning a blind eye to its excursions in Syria which go against this agreement. Nasrallah maintains that using the Lebanese army helps to maintain Hezbollah’s interests in a neutral non-sectarian appearing mask that helps to cover up its real pro-Hezbollah sectarian agenda in Lebanon.

    5) The U.S. has been paying for a lot of food and medical aid that is airlifted and dropped into Deir Ezzor which is mostly used by the Syrian army garrison that is surrounded by ISIS there. This has allowed the Syrian army to control parts of Deir Ezzor and has also made it possible for Assad and his allies to focus on this city as their primary objective currently to link up with this garrison that has survived thanks to U.S. help. This is in contrast to Assad and his Iranian and Russian allies who have prevented food and medicines from reaching opposition areas by their siege and starve methods that they have been using.

    Given all of the above, if nothing changes in these areas to the advantage of the Syrian opposition, as mostly through changes in U.S. policy, the Iranian enemy is going to take more advantage.

  • Apr 9, 2018 @ 7:22 at 7:22

    It is understandable now that this was all part of the preparation for Assad to begin WMD attacks. If he uses WMD he can kill the population with less damage to his country’s infrastructure. What a fool.
