A Syrian national who was arrested by the country's security forces confessed during interrogations that Saudi Arabia is collaborating with Israel in launching terrorist attacks against the Hezbollah resistance group. Ibrahim M., nom de guerre Abu al-Nour, confessed that Saudi Arabia is cooperating with Mossad, the Israeli spy agency, to launch military and terrorist attacks against Hezbollah inside the Lebanese territories, Arabic-language al-Safir daily reported. Ibrahim, who is a defected officer of the Syrian army, added that the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA) terrorist group, supported by certain regional states, has played a role in several explosions in Lebanon merely aimed at Hezbollah.
An Israeli air raid hit a Syrian military post and a Hezbollah position early Wednesday near Beirut-Damascus highway, a security source told The Daily Star.

Video Shows Tears, Hugs and Smiles, the Relief of Escaping East Aleppo

These images and videos will never see the light of day in the corporate media editing rooms because they expose the most criminal propaganda projects ever deployed against a sovereign nation.
“We want to go to our schools without fears of a car bomb, we want to play without a surprise of shells or explosive devices,” the children wrote in the letters which were handed over to Hanaa Sinjer, UNICEF resident representative in Damascus. The children called for ending terrorism and halting the financing of terrorists who target the schools and cities. The terrorist organizations targeted al-Furkan school, on Nov.20, with a rocket shell, killing 8 pupils and injuring 20 others.
The battle for one of the most contested Syrian cities in the nation's long-running civil war, Aleppo, is approaching its climax. According to Reuters, the Syrian army and its allies announced the capture of a large swath of eastern Aleppo from rebels on Monday - by some estimates as much as 40% of the militant held part - in an accelerating attack that threatens to crush the opposition in its most important urban stronghold.
In a major breakthrough in the government's push to retake the whole city, regime forces captured six rebel-held districts of eastern Aleppo over the weekend, including Masaken Hanano, the biggest of those. On Sunday, the 13th day of the operation, they also took control of the adjacent neighborhoods of Jabal Badra and Baadeeen and captured three others.
Syrian Army troops and popular forces inflicted major casualties on Jeish al-Fatah in the Eastern battlefields of Aleppo city, capturing two more districts and two key positions.
GOD BLESS AND PROTECT THE SYRIAN ARMY- BRAVE SOULS who have a LOVE FOR THEIR ancient NATION. May Allah help them liberate ALL THEIR COUNTRY, INSHUA'ALLAH and to HELL with the USSRAELI Terrorists and their Saudi/Qatari funders and Turkish/Jordanian ZIONISTTrainers

Kerry making 'unbelievable effort' to save Syrian rebels from Trump, Russia confirms:
The Kremlin has confirmed, substantiating a report that Kerry wants to seal a deal with Moscow before Donald Trump assumes the US presidency in January.
More than 3000 civilians have left the eastern part of the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo in the last 24 hours, the Russian Center for Reconciliation said.

The United Nations Security Council will hold an emergency meeting Wednesday on the dire humanitarian situation in the Syrian city of Aleppo, which a UN official described as a "descent into hell."
The Russian military said on Tuesday that in the past 24 hours 507 terrorists have left Aleppo and laid down their arms. The Syrian army and its allies seized full control of al-Sheikh Khezr, Bustan al-Pasha, Baeedin, Soleiman al-Halabi, al-Hallak, al-Anzarat, Sheikh Fares and Ayn al-Tal after they recaptured housing complexes in Hanano, Jabal Badrou, Arz al-Hamra and also driving a wedge along the Northern section of the Eastern districts of Aleppo city. The army units have taken back 20 square kilometers of the total 45 square kilometers of Eastern Aleppo after recapturing increasing number of regions.
How a Syrian White Helmets Leader Played Western Media
By Gareth Porter
Reporters who rely on the White Helmets' leader in Aleppo ignore his record of deception and risk manipulation. - http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45943.htm
By Tony Cartalucci
CNN, among many other establishment media platforms, has long promoted the US-European funded “Syrian Civil Defence” also known as the “White Helmets.”
Yet on November 25, they published an article titled, “Syria’s White Helmets apologize for Mannequin Challenge video,” in which they admit:
"It’s a familiar scene: Syria Civil Defence, also known as the “White Helmets,” rushing to rescue a man covered in rubble, but unlike thousands of other videos from Aleppo, this one is staged." ...
It never ceases to amaze me how Julian Assange NEVER exposes ISRAEL in the creation of all these phony ‘Muslim Terrorist Groups- it seems the Israelis are more than happy to let America’s CIA take the fall for Mossad. Why doesn’t Assange ever IMPLICATE ISRAEL? Perhaps he is their TOOL, given just enough intel info to make him look credible!!
We certainly don't need Assange to inform us that the CIA created ISIS- not gave rise to but CREATED this PHONY 'Muslim' terrorist group and their JEWISH ZIONIST 'CALIPHATE'
The founder of the transparency organization WikiLeaks released a statement Monday upon the release of over 500,000 diplomatic cables dating back to 1979, which succinctly reveals how the CIA was essentially responsible for creating the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.
The timing of the release coincided with the sixth anniversary of WikiLeaks “Cablegate” release, which exposed the machinations of the underbelly of the U.S. empire. The latest release, known as the “Carter Cables,” adds 531,525 new diplomatic cables to the WikiLeaks’ already voluminous Public Library of U.S. Diplomacy (PLUSD).
In a statement released in concert with the release of the “Carter Cables,” Julian Assange mapped out how the events of 1979 began a series of events that have ultimately culminated in the rise of ISIS.
ISIS takes 250 police personnel to Syria, execute slacking members;
ISIS kidnapped 250 police agents from the towns of Annah, Qaem and Rawa and transported them to Syria in vehicles run by the group, according to Nazem al-Jugheifi, intelligence commander
May the Donmeh Zionist Erdogan GO TO HELL and May God damn him for all the Crimes he has committed against the Syrian People, as he dutifully continues to take his orders from Israel whilst wishing to bring back the tyrannical Ottoman Empire with himself as the new Sultan/Pasha- ensuring he achieves this with his treacherous collaboration with Israeli/American Jews, having removed all his opposition by staging the coup that he conveniently blamed on someone else.
I pray one day the righteous Muslims of Turkey will rise up and remove ALL these Donmeh crypto Jews posing as Muslims who are at present ruling Zionist Turkey
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has just announced that the only reason Turkish military forces have entered northern Syria is to “end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad”.

The US may be drawn into war as NATO ally Turkey announces Military forces are on the ground in Syria to fight Russia and overthrow the Assad
On Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared that his country’s armed forces were not just in Syria to battle ISIS and al-Qaeda terrorists (and, uncomfortably for U.S. policymakers, America’s Kurdish allies) but were on a mission to overthrow the Syrian regime.
Turkey has been illegally running soldiers, artillery and infantry in and out of Syria for much of the duration of the present conflict. Now, however, the proxy and shadow war, which Turkey has been waging against the Syrian Arab Republic, has just become official.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has just announced that Turkish troops have entered Syria with the intention of removing President Assad from power. It is a formal declaration of war.
Western countries are urging to impose sanctions against Russia after 80,000 civilians were liberated in Syria’s Aleppo, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, said on Tuesday.
He recalled that, over the past 24 hours, the Syrian army had been able to liberate from militants almost half of eastern Aleppo where 80,000 civilians reside.
"Now it turned out that the release of over 80,000 Aleppo residents held hostage by gunmen was not part of the plans of the UK and French Foreign Ministries, the US Department of State and the German Bundestag. They even urged to impose new sanctions for that," the spokesman said.
The US Defense Department says mid-September airstrikes that killed dozens of Syrian soldiers in the country’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr was an “unintentional error” and did not violate international law.
MAY GOD DAMN AND CURSE THE LEADERSHIP of THE EMIRATIS AND SAUDIS- corrupt to the core- ZIONIST puppets
“We are hoping for this, yes, indeed. We need to force these terrorists out the same way as they need to be forced out of Mosul and Raqqa. It’s a common task,” Bogdanov said on Wednesday, as quoted by RIA news agency.
The Russian Peace Coordination Center in Syria announced on Sunday that militants in eight more towns in the two provinces of Damascus and Lattakia have laid down arms and signed peace agreement with Damascus in last 24 hours.
In the Syrian city of Aleppo, over a third of rebel-held areas have been recaptured by the country’s military.
Over 18 militants, including commanders, from three main terrorist groups have been killed in a fresh wave of attacks by unknown assailants in the Northwestern city of Idlib in the last four days.

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's statement that his forces in Syria were there to topple President Bashar al-Assad had come as a surprise to Moscow and that it expected an explanation from Ankara.
In a speech on Tuesday, Erdogan condemned what he said was the failure of the United Nations in Syria and cast Turkey's incursion in August, when it sent tanks, fighter jets and special forces over the border, as an act of exasperation.
"We are there to bring justice. We are there to end the rule of the cruel Assad, who has been spreading state terror," Erdogan said.
Erdogan may have just been mouthing off. He has to know that any promised support by the US against Russia might well vanish when Trump takes office.
Last night, the Syrian Air Force delivered air strikes on the Turkish Armed Forces near the ISIS controlled town of al-Bab in northern Syria, according to local sources in the Aleppo province.
The Turkish military confirmed that three Turkish soldiers and 10 others wounded (one of them seriously)were as result of an air strikes thought to be carried by the Syrian military. The wounded soldiers were taken to the hospital in the Turkish province of Gaziantep, bordering Syria.
Ankara added that the attack occurred at around 3:30 am (0030 GMT) in the course of the Turkish-led military operation (code-named Operation Euphrates Shield) in the area of al-Bab.
At the same, non-official Turkish and Syrian sources said that the attack resulted in killing over 5 Turkish soldiers and wounding of 16 others.
Meanwhile, intense fighting is ongoing between Turkey-led forces and Kurdish YPG forces in the province of Aleppo.
I have to wonder as to what the odds are of direct Turkish/Russian military confrontation in Syria, should things get very nasty very quickly here.
And at that point, what will the US government and military do?!?
While European officials expressed a lot of uncertainty over reports that Russia may have shipped jet fuel to their own air force in Syria, docking in an EU port along the way, and potentially violating EU sanctions in doing so, the US State Department responded with a statement of condemnation against Russia.
Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov responded angrily, insisting that in the US doesn’t intend to fight terrorists in Syria they should at least get out of the way and let Russia do it.
Konashenkov went on to say that the US policy is to repeatedly hamper Russia’s ability to fight terrorism, as an effort to conceal their own failures. The US has repeatedly condemned Russia for carrying out airstrikes against al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front and its territory.
Washington had impeded negotiations and now openly called on other countries to hamper Moscow's anti-terrorism fight. - http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article45926.htm
One of the most classic definitions of insanity is continuing to do the same thing over and over, yet expecting a different outcome; this is precisely what the US military is doing with it's Syrian "policy" of arming alleged "moderate rebels", (of whom there are none), and expecting that they will somehow overcome both Russian and Syrian military, destabilizing the country to the point of regime change in Damascus.
Such a policy has to be the "love child" of completely magical thinking, and the pathological inability to logically develop any scenario through to its logical conclusion.
Unfortunately, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov is absolutely correct when he talks about US governmental hypocrisy, in attempting to prevent Russia from doing what it promised the Syrian government it would do, which is to get rid of all the jihadists in Syria (including those the US has trained, armed, and funded.)
What is extremely dangerous here is the possibility that, now with US troops on the ground in Syria (we lost one the other day, to an IED), is that US and Russian forces may find themselves in a military confrontation, which would escalate the tensions in Syria exponentially; and please be assured, there are elements within the current government which would love nothing more than to get a hot war going - anywhere - and saddle Trump with it, even before he takes the Oath of Office.
After months of the US assisting weapons smuggling to rebels in Syria but also trying to keep anti-aircraft missiles out of the country, the US-backed rebels in the south, including Ansar al-Islam forces have issued a video of their fighters parading around with anti-aircraft weapons.
The weapons shown in the video were 9k32 Strela-2 missiles, a Soviet design from the late 1960s which remains a popular shoulder-mounted anti-aircraft missile across the world. It is unclear where the rebels got them, but they claimed to have a “good number” of them.
Saudi Arabia has been keen to get anti-aircraft missiles into the hands of rebels for years, but had so far been blocked by the US. It is possible they were finally able to do so, and while the Saudis aren’t themselves users of that particular design of missiles, they are common enough on the export market.
One has to wonder if President Obama "greenlit" this in the closing days of his administration, to keep the war in Syria continuing against the Al-Assad government
The small, if not always totally certain number of US ground troops in Syria has meant they’ve mostly remained off the front lines, embedded with the Kurdish YPG. The first death among US soldiers in the country was reported today near Kurdish-held Ayn Issa, north of Raqqa.
The soldier was wounded in an IED blast near Ayn Issa, and did not survive. Centcom confirmed the incident but did not offer any particular details on what the soldier was doing at the time. Kurdish forces are advancing southward from Ayn Issa toward Raqqa, however.
While the first US military death in Syria, it’s also the second death in as many months in anti-ISIS offensives, with another soldier killed near northern Iraq’s city of Mosul. In similar fashion, that soldier was killed in a roadside bomb while embedded with Kurdish troops.
What the hell is the US government doing, sending ground troops into Syria?!?
It is a blatant violation of Syrian national sovereignty, not to mention that the duly elected Al-Assad government has not invited the US government for help to get rid of the jihadists, battling his regime.
And of course, the reality that the US government has trained and funded many of these jihadists (the "moderate" guys, right?!?) is not helping the situation.
I have to wonder if our troops are in Syria to assassinate the heads of those units the US supported and trained, in order to regime-change Damascus, before they can blab to the world about who they really work for?!?
