Russian bombers now transit Iran’s airspace to Syria – rejoinder for US-Israeli air force cooperation

Long-range, heavy Russian bombers are flying from their home bases via Iranian airspace for combat operations in Syria, thereby cutting short flying time. Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran‘s Supreme National Security Council, said on Sunday, Dec. 15, that Iranian and Russian coordination “is comprehensive, embracing different aspects.” He also told the Mehr news agency that, although a number of Russian bombers had recently transited Iran’s airspace, they “had not conducted refueling operations.”

Shamkhani was responding to recent reports that Russian Tupolev-22M “Backfire” long-range bombers had flown through Iran’s skies and used a military base during recent missions in Syria. He appeared to rule out Russian bombers again being permitted to land at an Iranian air base. Three years ago, Moscow was granted the use of the Noje Airbase in the northern Hamadan province for operations in Syria. Nevertheless, his reference to “comprehensive” coordination with Russia on “different aspects” has aroused concern in Washington and Jerusalem. They assume, say DEBKAfile’s military sources, that Moscow almost certainly granted Tehran a comparable quid pro quo for its operations in Syria. For instance, certain Russian air facilities in Syria, hitherto out of bounds to Iranian flights, may now be made available.

In November, Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan asserted hat Tehran could again allow Russia to use this airbase “for the aerial campaign against terrorists again if such a need arises.” He confirmed, “If the situation and conditions [in Syria] demand to provide this support, we will do this job.”  

Our military sources interpret this new step in Iranian-Russian cooperation as stemming from the advancing partnership between the US and Israel in targeting Iran’s expanding foothold in Syria. At least three combined air strikes have taken place this month, although none of the parties concerned, including Tehran, has disclosed that they took place.

      Not yet an airbase, admittedly, but definately complicates targetting Iranians. How many Russian servicemen will the fck eu’s be permitted to kill? Time will tell. Time is the adversary. Days are numbered.

      Putin has no natural affinity for the fanatical ugly ragheads in Tehran. He’ll use them until he no longer needs them. They have to do Putin’s bidding . He owes them very little compared to what they already owe him.

      You right that the Zionist Ashkenazi influence in America is toxic and that its driving the antisemitic trope to cover this up. Israel needs to stand on its own two feet and not leach of American money, military or diplomacy. So America first and Israel last.

      You may enjoy reading the Kolbrin Bible Robert if you have not already. Its description of events pre-noah are remarkably similar to what is expected should Nibiru turn at to be true. Its explains the Hopi Indian legend of the blue/red star and the devastation that is unleashed when the red star appears.

      Chinese 2 Aircraft Carriers do not really challenge the US Navy or Japan’s Coast Guard both known for far sophisticated sea & air capabilities than China’s Carriers. Since the Chinese Carriers are Extremely Vulnerable to Submarine Attacks, particularly the US Navy Subs that Rule the Western Pacific!

    Trump will do nothing against Russia. Russia will allow Iranians to use Russian air bases to unload their troops, weapons, and technology for use against Israel and others. Israel will refrain from attacking lest it angers the Kremlin. Slowly, Iranian presence will grow. Iran and Saudis might make peace so that neither the US nor Israel can count on Saudi support. After all, the Houthis might strike Saudi Arabia again.
    Russia could retaliate against newly operational Israeli natural gas rigs in the Mediterranean.

      @ Stephen,

      The Saudis cannot ever be counted on for support regardless.
      As for all of those other predictions, remember…………………….the Oprah is not over ’till the “fat lady” sings (sorry for my political incorrectness).
