english.ruvr.ru – Syrian intelligence service thwarts assassination attempt against Syrian President – Lebanese newspaper
The Jordanian special services have revealed an assassination attempt against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, the Lebanese Addiyar Newspaper reported today. Relevant information was given to the Syrian intelligence service in due time, which enabled the latter to destroy the plotters’ plans.
Militants planned to use the mobile anti-aircraft systems they had received from Qatar for hitting Assad’s plane with the help of a surface –to- air missile on its way to Latakia Airport, the Addiyar Newspaper says.
It turned out that 2 technical workers from the Mezza military airfield near Damascus from where the airliner of the Syrian President was due to take off were involved in the above-mentioned plot. According to the Lebanese newspaper, among the master minders of an attack on the airliner of the Syrian President were the militants of the radical Islamist group Jebhat al-Nusra and the Syrian anti-aircraft gunners who deserted from the Syrian army and whom radical Islamists attracted to their side. The firing should have started after Assad’s plane’s going down to the height of 50 metres.
Dmitry Minin – The Geopolitics of Gas and the Syrian Crisis: Syrian «Opposition» Armed to Thwart Construction of Iran-Iraq-Syria Gas Pipeline
A battle is raging over whether pipelines will go toward Europe from east to west, from Iran and Iraq to the Mediterranean coast of Syria, or take a more northbound route from Qatar and Saudi Arabia via Syria and Turkey. Having realized that the stalled Nabucco pipeline, and indeed the entire Southern Corridor, are backed up only by Azerbaijan’s reserves and can never equal Russian supplies to Europe or thwart the construction of the South Stream, the West is in a hurry to replace them with resources from the Persian Gulf. Syria ends up being a key link in this chain, and it leans in favor of Iran and Russia; thus it was decided in the Western capitals that its regime needs to change. The fight for «democracy» is a false flag thrown out to cover up totally different aims.
