Russia Releases Photos Showing US Special Ops At ISIS Positions In Syria

 

 

The Russian Defense Ministry has released aerial images allegedly showing ISIS, the SDF, and US special forces working side-by-side on the battlefield against Syrian and Russian forces in Dier ez-Zor, Syria.

As Adam Garrie reports, via The Duran, it has long been thought that the US proxy militia SDF is operating in collusion with ISIS in various parts of Syria. This has especially been the case in respect of Deir ez-Zor. In Deir ez-Zor, the Russian Defense Ministry has previously stated that the Syrian Arab Army and their allies are fired on most intensely from positions known to be held by the SDF.

Furthermore, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov recently stated,

“SDF militants work to the same objectives as Daesh terrorists. Russian drones and intelligence have not recorded any confrontations between Daesh and the ‘third force’, SDF”.

He added that Russia will not hesitate to target SDF forces that threaten the battle field progress and personal safety of Russia’s allies, namely the Syrian Arab Army. Continue reading

(Source: Rt.com)

 

Russia has deployed Iskander-M tactical missile systems in the Kaliningrad region. The move sparked tension in the Baltic States. On October 8, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said: “By the way, nobody made a big secret out of the transportation of the system onboard the freighter Ambal. I’ll say more – one Iskander system was deliberately exposed prior to the shipment to an American intelligence satellite, which was on its trajectory above [the region] – that was made in order to clarify [i.e.check out] certain parameters of this satellite.” He also added that the Russian side did not have long to wait since the US partners in their “exposure impulse” have confirmed everything that the Russians needed.

Russia has stationed Iskander missiles in western region: reports

What likely transpired here is both a ‘signal’ that the EU will not swipe Ukraine away from the Kremlin, and that it can intimidate Europe because it can. The fight for Ukraine has also been going on for years (i.e. Orange Revolution) and is not just a recent event. The Russians, as they were in the past, are masters at turning their provocations around and making it like they’re the injured party. In this case, it’s also NATO fault because of the missile shield. If you want to get deeper in context, it could also be argued that this is a hidden war between Moscow and Berlin, two countries who have always fought over eastern Europe and the Balkans because both realize this is the key to entering the opposition’s territory.

One might scoff at the idea, and that’s fine, but history always repeats itself. Moscow hasn’t changed since the introduction of Leninism, Marxism and Communism — and as Margaret Thatcher had once said: Instead of anchoring Germany to Europe, Europe has been anchored to Germany. Germany is in full control of Europe again and one only has to compare its history to what’s going on today.

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia has deployed Iskander missiles with a range of hundreds of kilometers in its Baltic Sea enclave of Kaliningrad, which borders NATO members Poland and Lithuania, the newspaper Izvestia reported on Monday.

The Izvestia report came after the German newspaper Bild reported on Saturday that secret satellite imagery showed Iskander-M missiles stationed near the Polish border. Continue reading
