Southfront: Syria Continues to Slam Terrorists, Retaliate Against Turkey While Trump Cowers

Editors note:  There are two  key issues in this short video for  news hungry readers/viewers.   First of all, Nikki Haley’s threats to attack Syria several days ago if  the march on US backed terrorists who  have been shelling Damascus for years doesn’t end has now become a humiliation for the US.
Russia has made it clear.  It will hit any base that launches  an attack on Syria over  phony gas attacks now proven to have been staged by US backed terrorists.
 VT cites the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations, what we believe to be a CIA based group in  Maryland, for their part in gas attacks on the Syrian people.  We believe their propagandizing has made them fully complicit, nearly as much as George Clooney’s White Helmets and other terrorist supporters.
We are similarly suspicious of the part of Israel and the UK in staged killings such as that of a former Russian spy in the UK.  Those who “cry wolf” are often the wolves themselves.
Wild claims without evidence is typical for the Western nations that increasingly are taking on the appearance of police state dictatorships.
Last,  note that the Syrian National Defense Forces, when attacked by Turkey, retaliated.  Expect Russia to step in.g

On March 14, ten so-called “moderate opposition” groups launched a large-scale attack on positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Hama and captured the villages of al-Hamamiyat and Karnaz.

According to a released statement, the attack was dubbed “Wrath of Ghouta” and aimed at assisting militants suffering setbacks in battle against the SAA in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta. Later, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham also announced via its Iba’a news agency that its members had supported the groups involved in the advance.

However, by the evening, Wrath of Ghouta had turned to be a failure for the so-called moderate opposition. The SAA retook Karnaz and al-Hamamiyat, captured a battle tank and, according to pro-government sources, killed up to 50 militants.

Meanwhile, in Eastern Ghouta itself, the SAA, the Tiger Forces and other pro-government factions liberated a half of Jisreen, reached the vicinity of Hamouriyah and entered the industrial area south of Douma. On March 15, the SAA continued its advance aiming to liberate and secure Jisreen and to tighten the siege on Douma.

The Turkish Army and the Free Syrian Army captured the villages of Al-Nira and Kafr Shil from the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in the Afrin area. However, Turkish forces did not advance on the road linking the city of Afrin and the government-held part of Aleppo province.

The Turkish media has released a series of videos showing YPG members preventing civilians from leaving the city of Afrin. Ankara says that this is a clear evidence that the YPG uses locals as human shields. Pro-YPG sources deny these claims.

Separately, on March 14, the Turkish military struck a checkpoint of the government’s National Defense Forces (NDF) in Nubl-Zahraa. 8 NDF members were killed.

  1. What’s going on in Al Tanf? In addition too the usual US reinforcement, we have rumors of significant British activity- tanks and troops! How does this connect to the poisoning in the UK?

  2. If Trump is stupid enough to start WWIII, just think of the many powerful enemies the U.S. now has all over the planet. All are waiting for the chance for pay back time. America won’t escape damage again as it has so many times. This time won’t be pretty and will not only destroy cities and kill people it will destroy the economy for decades to come. In fact if Trump and his four star thugs continue to foolishly provoke Putin, they might wake up to no DC or NY or Israel anymore on the face of the earth.

    • Here is a partial list of enemies: North Korea, China, Russia, Syria, Iran, Turkey, Mexico, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen. Why even California might join the fray.

    • Perhaps that is exactlky what they want: a diminished population and chance to recreate without any pesky opposition. The survivors will have a margibnal existence as scavengers & too bust ducking predatory groups to bother them.
