Syrian War Report – April 10, 2017: US Deploys Forces At Syrian-Jordanian Border


…from SouthFront

The US military is reportedly concentrating troops and military equipment at the Syrian-Jordanian border. Local sources said that about 20 US Army armoured vehicles (including battle tanks and artillery pieces) carried on trucks were spotted in Al-Mafraq. US troops were allegedly accompanied with the Jordanian Army’s 3rd Division.

The US Special Operation Forces, the UK Special Operation Forces and units from some other countries -have been conducting operations across the Syrian-Jordanian border for a long time. They even had a secret military facility inside Syria where members the so-called New Syrian Army militant group were deployed. However, it was the first time when a notable number of US armoured vehicles was reported there. The US Ro-Ro ship Liberty Passion, loaded with vehicles, had arrived to the Jordanian port of Al-Aqapa few days ago. These moves followed a meeting between the Jordanian King and the US president.

Thus, the US-led coalition could prepare a large-scale military operation in southern Syria. The goal of the operation will likely be to get control over the Syrian-Iraqi border and to reach Deir Ezzor. It will involve militants trained in camps in Jordan and the US-led coalition’s forces. SF forecasted a possibility of this move in the video entitled “New US Strategy Against ISIS And War In Syria. What To Expect?” in March, 2017.

The US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, has announced that the regime change in Syria is one of the top priorities of the US foreign policy and a political solution of the crisis is not going to happen “with Assad at the head of the regime.”

Meanwhile, the alleged command center of Russia, Iran, Syria and their allied forces (Hezbollah and other pro-government factions) allegedly issued a statement condemning the US military strike on Syrian forces.

The statement described the attack that targeted an airbase belonging to the Syrian Arab Army as a flagrant breach of all “red lines.” According to the statement, the allies will respond to any new agression and will increase support to the Syrian people and the country’s armed forces on all levels.

“What America waged in an aggression on Syria is a crossing of red lines. From now on we will respond with force to any aggressor or any breach of red lines from whoever it is and America knows our ability to respond well,” the text of the statement reads.

The statement also condemned the incident in Khan Sheikhoun and added that the Syrian military was not responsible for the alleged chemical attack.

It’s important to note that the statement was released via “non-official” media channels linked to the Iranian-Syrian-Russian alliance’s forces operating in Syria. So, this is an unofficial warning to the United States and their allies. The Russian Defense Ministry and the Iranian Defense Ministry have not commented on the issue yet.

Many sources suggest that the Iranian-Syrian-Russian alliance could launch a fresh military operation in order to reach Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib’s southern countryside. The control over this village will allow opening a real investigation of the alleged chemical attack in the village.

Intense clashes are ongoing in the Hama countryside where the joint militant forces led by Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) oppose the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. Clashes were reported in the areas of Maardes, Helfaya, Mahardeh and Qamhana. Meanwhile, more and more reinforcements from the Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces and the Republican Guard arrive northern Hama ahead of the expected large-scale offensive to retake this area from militants.

The security institutions controlled by Turkey in Jarablus issued an order to close all roads linking the Turkish-controlled part of northern Syria with the Manbij and its countryside controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Manbij Military Council. The decision is aimed at preventing an economic cooperation with the SDF-controlled territory. The Turkish-controlled forces will also attempt to cut smuggling routes between the Turkish-controlled and Kurdish-controlled areas in northern Syria.

  1. Everyone remember that this is not America. The US government has been infiltrated more and more since 1913 and earlier. These actions are fake Hebrews/Southern Russians/Ashkenazi Jews/Rothchild Khazarian Mafia. They are the Bolsheviks that killed 40-60 million Christians and 80,000 priests in one day, all during the Bolshevik reign of Russia. They are even still controlling much of Russia as Jewish oligarchs. Time to eliminate Israel and rid the USA of dual citizen Zionists.

  2. Nikki Haley once again, proves she is a whore for israel and nothing else.A political slut with dirty knees or just a slut period. Sorta like kellyAnne.
    America is going to pay and pay dearly for its continued military adventurism. I will not weep for the dead and wounded American soldiers. I do not support the troops. America no longer exists, therefore to support its military is a violation of all morality and justice.
    This administration has sealed the fate of America. Trump has proven to be just another corrupted liar and ignorant fool. His administration, made up of the corrupted and zionist ideologues, will set the entire middle east on fire and take down israel with it. Soon after that Washington itself will be burning.

  3. The Americans are getting ready on the Jordan border and the Ameri-Isis battalion is on the Donbass/ Crimea border so it looks like its going to be a Hot summer since the Jews have to have Russia this year. Tel Aviv will be history by the end of the year if things continue and the rest of the world – what’s left of it will at least have that satisfaction. I wouldn’t let that US Armour make it 2 klicks into my country if I was Assad. If the West doesn’t use some diplomacy { which is Nikki Haley and Tillerson shuttin up} then the game is on. It may be interesting to see what , if any , weapons fly from Antarctica. LOL

  4. Anyone who believes Assad gassed his own people need to grow a brain...Pigheaded warmongers in Washington and their allies so called Mighty NATO has been waging wars in other regions and we should recognize that US hes been waging unjust wars for more than 150 years now on so many parts of the world,and particular in the world of Islam..this is nothing new for us ,we are custom to a warmongering of US regardless who is the President of US..In 2013 there was Chemical attack in Syria conducted by so called moderate rebels or those who wanted to provoke to US to do precisely what Trump has done ..At least It was the credit of Obama didnt accept the claim that Syrian regime used chemical weapons..Obama refused to respond with a military attack on Syria..At that time Russia helped Obama because Russia persuaded the Syrian Government to accept that they did have Chemical weapons and to agree to destruction of all Chemical weapons and an international organization was accredited to do the job of ensuring that all the Chemical weapons will destroy then they were destroyed that is why Obama administration did not respond with any military attack to the Syria ..This time false flag of Chemical attack and Trump did military respond in Syria shows that he is not a statesman ,he is not a leader and he is following the orders which come from the main establishment of US..who want US keep getting involved in useless wars..

    • Funny, now it looks though Obama had bigger nads than the ‘ladies man’. Trump just rolled over so fast that the attack was on before it could be stopped. Trump has the constitution (pun) of a cardboard box…a wet cardboard box.

  5. Trump has a new “red line”. It is use of barrel bombs, which are common. So I guess he doesn’t believe Russia and et al are serious, when they say they will hit back. The arrogance of a dying empire.

  6. Not being military, I wonder what countermeasures can be taken by Assad & allies to stop these incursions/invasion from coming in from Jordan. I suppose it all depends on resources and the risk the defenders of Assad and Syrian sovereignty are willing to take. But if nothing is done…? Deir Ezzor, the eastern region of Syria are lost.

    • Yes, it looks like the plan is to keep the Syrians busy with the western half of the country, while the US et al go for Deir Ezzor and do as you say. They could be stopped by air if necessary, but the US will have some sort of air defense umbrella. It also depends on whether Syria itself has upgraded defenses to use, as the Russians are not obligated to protect Syria such an event. But since Russian reputation and goals in the area depend on what they do, they might surreptitiously involve themselves. If Russia can effectively neutralize their radar/laser acquisition or possibly disrupt it, then the US will be in deep shit. If not, then all bets are off as to where this could go. This could turn into a real can of worms real quick.

    Well this is a puzzle. Trump and the deep state and the lying American Press, hmmmm. Do they really think that surrounding Damascus and killing Assad and putting headchoppers in to run Syria can be done with out paying a horrific price? What goddam idiots. These people deserve a hard slap in the face and even though I live in Canada, which for my American friends is North of you stupid people, like you know across the Northern Border so if North America is hit by what ever because of your belligerent stance so be it. I am just very tired of even thinking of you and what you may cause. Long Live Russia
