Trump Humiliated: Russia Threatens to destroy any US equipment or facility attacking Syria

“There are many Russian advisers, representatives of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and servicemen in Damascus and at Syrian defense facilities,” he said adding that Russian forces will take retaliatory actions against any “missiles” or “launchers” posing a threat to Russian service members.

On March 13, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) entered the area of al-Qadam in southern Damascus after local militants had been evacuated from it.

Militants had been forced to sign an evacuation agreement with Damascus after ISIS units operating in the Yarmouk Camp had mostly overrun their defenses.

ISIS launched an attack on al-Qadam seeking to capture the area before it could be fully secured by the SAA. Clashes continued on March 14.

On March 13, Head of the Russian General Staff Valery Gerasimov commented on the US threat to strike Syrian government forces if the military operation in Eastern Ghouta continues.

“There are many Russian advisers, representatives of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Opposing Sides and servicemen in Damascus and at Syrian defense facilities,” he said adding that Russian forces will take retaliatory actions against any “missiles” or “launchers” posing a threat to Russian service members.

Earlier, both Syrian and Russian officials warned that militants had been preparing to stage a chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta and to blame it on Damascus.

On the same day, the SAA continued its military operation advancing on militant positions in Harasta and entering the town of Jirsin where fighting erupted. Syrian and Russian forces also intensified efforts to evacuate civilians from the besieged areas. Around 150 people were evacuated from Douma.

On March 13 and March 14, the Turkish Army and the Free Syrian Army advanced further in the Afrin area capturing Dermamise, Qarah Bash and other points from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG). Turkish forces still keep a corridor southeast of Afrin to allow civilians and some YPG members to flee the city in order to ease the battle for it.

  1. “Russian forces will take retaliatory actions against any “missiles” or “launchers” posing a threat to Russian service members”.
    Does that mean this time the Russian forces will really, really retaliate against Israel too or are they “over the rainbow” and still can’t be touched? Not quite sure about this one!

    • They’re mostly people from former Soviet states in Israel, according to the demographic data.

      It makes it harder for Russia to bomb them — It’s like Britain bombing New Zealand.

  2. Russia needs a show of force to convince the Israelis they are in mortal danger. The Israelis are always pumping themselves up as a superior race, superior army among the cattle, this energizes them, until they realize they are not, this is when you dictate your terms to them. If Israel convinced to say stop, Dumpty will, also follows the neutered bulldog and the perfumed poodle. A real WTF show of force, preferably a couple of F35s crashing in Hellaviv, then a couple of cruisers with mini nukes into the airbase the birds flew from. Followed with a warning to release the 911 file from Russia if they make a sound. Is this too much to ask? Fight a small engagement today Mr. Puttin, instead of a full war tomorrow.

  3. Putin should give the U.S. 24 hours notice to remove all persons and what equipment they can from Syria. After that everything remaining will be demolished as is where is. Any attempt to retaliate will be met with the maximum lethal nuclear force no matter the consequences. This is the only kind of language these fools understand. If necessary UN permission could also be requested first from the Security Council. The U.S. is in Syria totally illegally as an illegal invader. Congress has not provided any legal authority to be there either.
