As Israel Bombed Syria, US Airstrikes Killed Dozens Of Russian Mercenary Soldiers And Took Out Soviet T-72 Battle Tank

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A US jet operating in Syria destroyed a Russian-made T-72 battle tank near Al Tabiyeh, Syria on Saturday, a Pentagon spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This past weekend, as we have been reporting to you, Israel inflicted a series a devastating airstrikes on Iranian positions deep within Syria. But news coming over the wire this morning shows the events of the past few days are eminently more complex than originally thought. At the same time Israel was destroying Iranian military strongholds, the United States sent two F-22 Raptors to wipe out a nest of Russian mercenaries that had fired upon US coalition forces. Isn’t it so great to now have a president that actually sides with Israel and backs them up, instead of a president who stabbed Israel in the back every chance he got while empowering their enemies? Truly President Trump was placed in this position by God for such a time as this. 

“The tank had been maneuvering with coordinated indirect fire on a defensive position occupied by Syrian Democratic Forces and Coalition advisors,” US Marine Corps Major Adrian J.T. Rankine-Galloway said, adding that the SDF’s “position was within effective range of the hostile weapons systems.”

The US has been training, equipping and backing the SDF rebels in Syria’s civil war for years as Russia has provided similar assistance to pro-regime forces in close proximity.

Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson first reported the news of the tank’s destruction and said that it had fired on US special operations troops in the same location as an attack last week, wherein 500 pro-regime forces fired on a US and SDF headquarters.

The US responded to that attack on February 7 with a furious barrage of air and artillery strikes and reported killing 100 pro-regime forces, but sources told Bloomberg on Saturday that as many as 200 or 300 Russian mercenaries were killed in the attack.

U.S. forces killed scores of Russian mercenaries in Syria last week in what may be the deadliest clash between citizens of the former foes since the Cold War, according to one U.S. official and three Russians familiar with the matter.

More than 200 contract soldiers, mostly Russians fighting on behalf of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, died in a failed attack on a base held by U.S. and mainly Kurdish forces in the oil-rich Deir Ezzor region, two of the Russians said. The U.S. official put the death toll at about 100, with 200 to 300 injured.

The Russian assault may have been a rogue operation, underscoring the complexity of a conflict that started as a domestic crackdown only to morph into a proxy war involving Islamic extremists, stateless Kurds and regional powers Iran, Turkey and now Israel. Russia’s military said it had nothing to do with the attack and the U.S. accepted the claim. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis called the whole thing “perplexing,” but provided no further details.

President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, declined to comment on reports of Russian casualties, saying the Kremlin only tracks data on the country’s armed forces. Putin talked with U.S. President Donald Trump by phone Monday, but the military action in Syria wasn’t discussed, he said. source

      ZIONISM = TERRORISM; THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING; AMERICAN TROOPS IN A CIA DEATH WISH; PANDEMONIUM IN TERRORIST RANKS

      Everyone has read about the ILLEGAL ASSAULT on FIGHTERS with the Popular Defense Forces WHO WERE TARGETED BY AMERICAN AIRCRAFTand ARTILLERY :idea: as they were lawfully moving north between the villages of Khushaam and Al-Taabiyya in northeast Dayr El-Zor. Some reports in the Western Media claim that over 100 “pro-Assad regime troops” were killed by the noble and democracy-loving yanks. That is not true.

      The actual NUMBER OF FIGHTERS KILLED in the convoy heading north is around 22 with CIVILIANS BEING THE LARGEST CASUALTY. THE CIVILIANS WERE ACCOMPANYING the PDC, FOR SAFETY’S SAKE, as THEY WERE HEADING BACK TO THEIR HOMES. :idea: THE U.$. BOMBED CIVILIANS, MURDERING OVER 100 MEN, WOMEN and CHILDREN. :twisted: GOOD $HOW Uncle $am. :twisted: This is THE GRATEest MILITARY in the WORLD – a military that HA$ KILLED MORE AFGHAN CIVILIANS THAN ANY CONQUEROR in HI$$tory; :evil: A MILITARY THAT BOMBED TO DEATH OVER ONE MILLION VIETNAMESE CIVILIANS; :evil: A MILITARY “WITCH” PROVIDE$ the $AUDI CHIMP$ with ALL the ORDNANCE THEY NEED to EXTERMINATE the POOREST NATION IN the ARAB WORLD. :idea:

      :evil: The ZIONI$T$ are BACK AT IT AGAIN. :idea:
      Flying over Lebanon, they unleashed a volley of rockets at the town of Jamraayaa where the Syrian military maintains a military research and development facility. This time, most of the missiles were intercepted and destroyed by the Pantsir Air Defense System defending the Damascus area. We can also confirm that a two-seater F-16 fighter jet was destroyed and crashed in the northern Galilee. The pilots are believed to have ejected successfully seconds before the S-300 missile exploded their aircraft. In truth, the pilots had only seconds to live and made the right decision to abandon the aircraft. One of the pilots is in serious critical condition.

      There are some questions about why the attack on Jamraayaa took place. It is not the first. NO EVIDENCE OF ANY MILITARY DELIVERIES FROM IRAN to HZB. And there was little or nothing going on with the SAA that would provoke such an attack. The Syrian MoD claims that THE ATTACK WAS CONTRIVED t….GIVE the TERRORI$T$…a “$EN$E” of support !

      BUT……HERE IS WHAT MY SOURCES ARE TELLING ME: :idea:

      Over the last 5 days, the SYRIAN ARMY under command of Maj. General Suhayl “Tiger” Al-Hassan, was able to liberate 1,500 square kms of territory in the formerly besieged pocket extending from southeast Khanaassir in Aleppo Prov. to West Sinjaar in Idlib down to Al-Sa’an in Hama. This used to be Nusra territory. Much of the weaponry used by the SAA at these battles were weaponized drones flying out of central airbases like the one at Shu’ayraat. In addition to this, the SAA also liberated Qasr bin Wardaan and Al-Musaytiba on February 8, 2018 from ISIS. Yesterday, the SAA swept over both Nusra and ISIS…LIBERATING 30 VILLAGES and TOWNS in HAMA.
      THIS of MOMENTUM CAUGHT …..THE ZIONIST TERRORIST PLANNERS…..UNAWARE$ unawares with radio traffic screaming out bloody murder from the terrorist rodents in the northwest of Syria.

      The ZIONI$T$ HAD TO DO SOMETHING.

      THEY CONCOCTED A PATENTLY FALSE TALE :idea: of an “Iranian” drone which violated ZIONI$T airspace :idea: and declared it an “abnormal kind of aggression”. In order to blunt the effectiveness of the weaponized drones, the ZIONI$T Air Force flew several missions designed to destroy areas where the drones were stored, manufactured and positioned. According to my sources, the ZIONI$T$ thought they had a free corridor in Lebanon and could fire their missiles at airbases in Syria with impunity. Some ZIONI$T bombers even flew over Southern Syria where their pilots, if need be, could eject into friendly terrorist territory.

      The Syrian High Command had already been given the okay by President Michel Aoun of Lebanon to fire at ZIONI$T aircraft flying in Lebanese airspace. When one F-16-S flew over South Lebanon and was detected by SAA radar, an S-300 was fired right at it and struck the jet dead on almost killing the TWO-RODENT CREW. The aircraft, due to its attitude and altitude, crashed into Occupied Palestine in the Galilee near the Arab town of Umm Al-Fahm. In addition to this, ZIONI$T aircraft flying over the Hawraan in Syria, fired missiles at SAA bases but almost all the projectiles were intercepted and destroyed before they could reach their intended targets. Another bomber flew over Lebanon in an attack on Jamraayaa northwest of Damascus, but, the aircraft were only successful in delivering their bombs to areas surrounding the town. My source, Monzer, writes that another ZIONI$T jet was struck by air defense missiles fired from Brigade 22 which is 3 kms north of Lake ‘Utayba. The news of that strike is still being investigated.

      It should be obvious that the game has changed. Tony Gratrex has sent me several articles about how the ZIONI$T Apartheid $TATE and the U.$. ARE NOW EMBARKING ON A “NEW” STRATEGY WITH THE SAME OUTWORN END LOGIC.
      The plan now, according to one article from Tony, is to PREVENT SYRIA FROM BEING ABLE TO REBUILD ITSELF by denying it access to oil and gas facilities.
      This is one reason why the U.S. struck the PDC units at Dayr El-Zor on February 8, 2018 after midnight killing all those civilians. Evidently, the American allies in the SDF agreed to permit the Syrian government to take over oil fields in Dayr El-Zor. The U.S. would have none of it. This is where the UNITED STATES now finds itself: TILTING at WINDMILLS.

      Now I know that president Trump is just another Zionist stooge doing the bidding of his satanic Zionist masters. The US has made a mockery of international law when it comes to its policy in the Middle East and in particular Syria. How the world can sit back and allow the totally illegitimate state of Israel terrorise it neighbors with impunity? The false Zionist state of Israel has done nothing but committed atrocities against the people of this region ever since its regretful inception. The British and American administrations should have lost all credibility in the eyes of the international community by supporting Israels expansionist policy in the Middle East. The state of Israel needs to be dispanded and all stolen land be given back to the Palestinians who originally owned it. The Golan heights needs to be returned to Syria, netenyahu needs to be put on trial for crimes against humanity as well as all those who have supported his administration and illegal expansionist policies, compensation also needs to be paid to the Palestinian people who suffered loss as a result of Israeli, US and UK belligerence. It may be a cold day in hell before we see this happen but a cold eternity in hell is a sure guarantee for the perpetrators and supporters of this diabolical situation.
