A powerful attack was carried out last night against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Hama countryside that killed more than 30 soldiers.
The attack completely destroyed the Brigade 47 Base, causing a massive explosion that could be heard throughout much of the country.
According to a Syrian military source, the attack was carried out by the Israeli Air Force; however, the latter has yet to comment on the allegations.
The military source added that the attack was believed to have been carried out by an Israeli F-35 fighter jet, as the remnants of glide bombs were found at the site.

Scott Ritter – A Shocking Lack of “Intelligence” in Our Missile Strike on Syria

The truth is out there, waiting on the ground in Douma. There is no doubt that the OPCW fact-finding mission has the forensic investigatory capability to detect the presence of chemical agents at the scene of the alleged chemical attack of April 7. The amount of chlorine necessary to have produced the number of casualties claimed is significant, and as such the chemical residue unique to such an event would be present in large quantities, and easily detected; no amount of “sanitation” by Russia or any other party could eliminate these traces.
This is the truth of the Douma chemical allegations—they can be readily proved or disproved almost immediately upon arrival at the scene by qualified inspectors from the OPCW. The fact that the United States, the United Kingdom and France opted to attack Syria without allowing the OPCW inspectors to first accomplish their mission provides the clearest indication possible that all three nations knew they possessed a shocking lack of intelligence to sustain their allegations surrounding the use of chemical agents by the Syrian government, and that the missile attack of April 13, was little more than a propaganda exercise designed to promote larger policy objectives regarding U.S., U.K. and French policy in Syria. This conclusion holds regardless of what the ultimate finding is by the OPCW inspectors as to what transpired on the ground in Douma the evening of April 7, 2018.

almasdarnews.com – Syrian state media reports 9 Israeli missiles intercepted

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported tonight that the Syrian Air Defense managed to shoot down at least nine Israeli missiles in the eastern countryside of Homs.
According to the SANA report, the Israeli missiles targeted the Syrian military’s positions Shay’rat Airbase, which was the target for the U.S. strike last year.
However, a source from the Syrian Army told Al-Masdar News that the likely target was actually the T-4 Military Airport, as several explosions were heard in that area.

zerohedge.com – Famed War Reporter Robert Fisk Reaches Syrian ‘Chemical Attack’ Site, Concludes ”They Were Not Gassed”

It was a short walk to Dr Rahaibani. From the door of his subterranean clinic – “Point 200”, it is called, in the weird geology of this partly-underground city – is a corridor leading downhill where he showed me his lowly hospital and the few beds where a small girl was crying as nurses treated a cut above her eye. “I was with my family in the basement of my home three hundred metres from here on the night but all the doctors know what happened. There was a lot of shelling [by government forces] and aircraft were always over Douma at night – but on this night, there was wind and huge dust clouds began to come into the basements and cellars where people lived. People began to arrive here suffering from hypoxia, oxygen loss. Then someone at the door, a “White Helmet”, shouted “Gas!”, and a panic began. People started throwing water over each other. Yes, the video was filmed here, it is genuine, but what you see are people suffering from hypoxia – not gas poisoning.”

proletaren.se – Får syrierna inte längre tillverka mediciner?

Natotrions folkrättsvidriga angrepp på Syrien hade inget med kemiska vapen att göra. Sådana vore livsfarliga att bomba bort. Det var snarare en desperat maktdemonstration i ett krig som väst och dess extremistvänner är på väg att förlora.

Retoriken inför attacken och genomförandet av den avslöjar ihåligheten i kemvapenanklagelserna mot Syrien.
Om Natoländerna på allvar trodde att den syriska armén utfört en kemisk attack i Douma, och hade bevis för det, då borde de ha inväntat undersökningen från Organisationen för förbud mot kemiska vapen (OPCW). Dess inspektörer kom till Damaskus samma dag som attacken.
Om Trump, May och Macron hade trott på sina egna bevis hade de lugnt kunnat luta sig tillbaka och snart kunnat visa hela världen att de hade rätt.
Men det är inte mycket till bevis som västmakterna har. Det tydliggjordes när Frankrikes regering under lördagen offentliggjorde en underrättelserapport om den påstådda gasattacken i Douma.
I rapporten framgår att slutsatsen om Assadregeringens skuld främst baseras på granskning av bilder och filmer på sociala medier samt på vittnesmål från västfinansierade organisationer i Douma som verkat under extremistgruppen Jaish al-Islams överinseende.
Det är inte bevis utan partsinlagor från röster som under hela kriget argumenterat för att västvärlden ska bomba bort Assad.

rt.com – ‘US knew there were no toxins & risked nothing’ – chemical experts on Syria strike

The US must have been well aware that there were no chemical stockpiles at Syrian facilities the coalition destroyed in their ‘retaliatory’ strike, Russian chemical weapons experts told RT, noting the absence of toxic emissions.
Announcing the early Saturday morning missile strikes, the American-British-French coalition asserted that their forces were targeting compounds associated with Syria’s alleged chemical weapons stockpiles. Now, after the dust settled, serious questions arise about the actual presence of any hazardous substances at these sites, including the bombed-out scientific facility in the Barzeh district in northern Damascus.
”This scientific research center has been inspected for several times by experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons [OPCW], moreover, a decision was taken to carry out such inspections twice a year,” Anton Utkin, a Russian chemical weapons expert and former UN inspector in Iraq, told RT.
The chemical weapons watchdog’s representatives found no traces of poisonous substances inside the center, even though it was inspected ”upside down, in and out.” The only reason why the Barzeh compound was put on the radar is that ”residues of amines were found there,” Utkin said, explaining further that amines are not chemical weapons or nerve agents themselves, but just substances that may potentially be used as ”stabilizers” in chemical weapons production.
However, since the facility in question was subject to a detailed inspection, ”the Americans knew there were no chemical weapons,” Utkin emphasized. Therefore, the expert suggested, by targeting the Barzeh facility, the US-led coalition were apparently trying ”to destroy Syria’s scientific capabilities as the center was pursuing various civilian-use [research] objectives.”
