New Massive Russian Base to Dominate Air Space Over Syria, Iraq, Turkey with S44

From SouthFront:

The Russian military is planning to deploy an S-400 long-range air-defense system in Syria’s northeastern region which is mostly controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), several Syrian and Russian sources reported on November 3.

The advanced air-defense system will allegedly be deployed at al-Qamishli Airport which is located right on the border with Turkey.

The S-400 system can detect airborne targets more than 600 kilometers away and fire a variety of anti-aircraft missiles with ranges from 40 up to 400 km.

A number of Syrian and Russian Pantsir-S short-range air-defense systems and radars are known to be deployed at al-Qamishli Airport.

Around a week ago, the Russian Aerospace Forces deployed several warplanes in the airport. The warplanes took part in a series of joint drills with the Syrian Arab Army in northern and northeastern Syria.

Russia already has two S-400 systems deployed in Syria, one at Hmeimim Air Base in Southern Lattakia and another at a large air defense base in western Hama.

If true, the Russian plan to deploy an S-400 system in northeastern Syria is clearly a message to Turkey who has been preparing to launch a new operation in the region against the SDF. Moscow and Damascus oppose such an operation as it would further destabilize the region.

From Syria:

A prospective alliance… and SDF require work to liberate “Ras al-Ain, Tal Abyad and Afrin” to participate

The Syrian situation has witnessed important developments, most notably Russia’s intensification of its military presence in the regions of north and east Syria, especially Qamishli Airport, which, according to sources, Russia is preparing to turn into a large military base that will be the most important in Syria.

In addition to this presence by bringing Sukhoi planes to Qamishli Airport, the Russian forces began conducting military maneuvers on the contact lines with the Turkish forces and their mercenaries in the areas of Tal Tamr, Ain Issa and Kobani, at a time when Turkey threatens to launch attacks on these areas.

Observers believe that this Russian military presence in the region, in coordination with the Syrian Democratic Forces, coincides with talk of a positive atmosphere between the Damascus government and the Autonomous Administration, and talk of upcoming talks between the two parties indicating the possibility of an alliance between Russia and Damascus on the one hand, and the Autonomous Administration on the other.

This was confirmed by several sources, including Mr. Omar Ossi, who spoke to Al-Watan newspaper about a joint document he submitted to the Damascus government and the Autonomous Administration aimed at forming a joint operations room to confront any possible Turkish aggression.

Some also spoke that, starting from the Qamishli base, Russia will work in coordination with the Syrian Democratic Forces to launch a military operation aimed at eliminating ISIS in the Syrian Badia.

In this context, sources confirmed that Russia plans to include this cooperation between the Russian forces and the Damascus forces on the one hand and the Syrian Democratic Forces to launch a military operation against the groups affiliated with the Turkish occupation in Idlib.

According to these sources, the Syrian Democratic Forces stipulated working to liberate the areas recently occupied by Turkey, such as Ras al-Ain, Tal Abyad and Afrin, to agree to joint cooperation.

Afghanistan

– Black agents of some US intelligence services stationed in Syria confirmed on November 1 that the bodies of about 10 Syrians believed to have been “executed” were found in a rocky area 20 km south of Kabul.

– They are mostly men in their 20s and 30s, all holding Syrian passports or ID cards, and they are believed to have participated in ISIL.

– In particular, Amir Harjawi, the leader of the two, is said to be being pursued in eastern Syria for the 2019 terrorist attacks on the US military, and the US is presuming that most of the people from eastern Syria have died.

– The US assumes that they were killed after being arrested by the Taliban, and that the Taliban measures are expected to be members of IS-K.

– In addition, the US estimates that at least 100 Syrians are fighting as members of ISIS in Afghanistan.

  1. On November 5, the Syrian Arab News Agency announced that President Bashar al-Assad had called President Xi Jinping of China.
    “President al-Assad stressed Syria’s keenness to develop ties between the government institutions in both countries, particularly with the improvement of security situation in most regions, and at the same time, accessing the Belt and Road Initiative, which constitutes a road for economy and development,” the press release reads.
    plus this with Russia…WOW!

  2. The Russians are fighting from the moral high-ground.
    That’s always the best place.
    America has lost every war it’s been in since WW2, by fighting from the moral swamp.
    If you want to say we won some; what did we really win?

  3. IS-K, “K” as in: The Israeli’s in your face joke for the Kosher regiment???

    Would/did the Israeli’s hit Kabul airport?…..Of course they would/did…Without hesitation…They’ll even point to someone who didn’t do it…..Israel did do 9/11….Well beyond any shadow of doubt…

  4. The base would seem to be in range of the Turkish long range artillery. Russian combat helicopters could take them but an artillery barage on the base with its air defense missiles and planes would be a juicy first strike target for the Turks, although that would escalate tensions more.

    The other reason could be that Russia wants a large airbase further from the Idlib battle field. The short term goal in NE Syria would be to push the Turks our of their 10km security zone back into Turkey with shoot to kill orders if they came south again. But the same would need to go agains the Kurds doing attacks in Turkey.

  5. This is more proof that something really big is up. The Russians know it, Syrians know it, and Israel for sure knows it. It’s only the United States of Amnesia that refuse to know it until it hits them in the head like a brick. Americans are the most brain-washed population on the planet by far.

    • Sadly you are quite right. At least for 70% of the population. Nietzsche wrote that the best control measure to keep a slave a slave would be to get the slave to believe that being a slave is a great thing. “Slave morality.” In the USA, the population is programmed to believe that we are free, even as our government grows more and more despotic.

  6. The kurds are traitors and so unreliable as zionists. Russia should let Erdogan crush them first or that US forces protect them in any case in order to promote the clash of turkish and US forces on the ground or leave them deal alone with Erdogan.

    • “The Kurds have no friends but the mountains.” An old Kurdish saying. As a people surrounded by larger hostile tribes, peoples and groups, the Kurds have been mass murdered by Turks and Iraqis alike. They are not unreliable, if they think that you are really a friend. But they have been conditioned by history to be wary. So have the Jews, though the animosity against them is largely of their own making, as a group.

    • Kurds in northern Syria they are there because Hafez Al-Asad given them asylum in 80’s when they ran away from Turkey thus saving them from end beheaded by the turks. When the Syrian war started ten years ago, they forgot from those times, make their choice and becoming in traitors allying with Damascus enemies. They make their bet and now they lost. The only thing deserve a traitor is a hole six feet under.
