BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Syrian air defenses have been placed on highest alert across the country, pro-government reporters claimed this afternoon.

These reports seem to have some truth behind them because a source at the Mezzeh Airbase said that they have been ordered to make preparations for a possible attack on Damascus.

The reason for placing the air defenses on the highest alert was not revealed; however, it is believed to be due to the potential threat of a U.S. strike on the capital or its surrounding area.

Earlier this week, the Russian Ministry of Defense accused the U.S. and its allies of making preparations to attack Syria.

The Russian Ministry of Defense said that the rebels in Idlib are preparing to launch a chemical weapons attack and blame it on the government.

They said the U.S. will use this chemical weapons attack to launch strikes against the government.

Keep the S400’s off the open runways. The Israelis will ‘be there’ too.

Russians have never prevented Israelis from striking Hebollah or IRGC, in fact, they even voted Hezb disarmament at UNSC.
Moreover, you don’t know that S-400 missiles fly 10km in 4 seconds so you can keep’em off ‘open runways’

I’m not sure how will they do it this time. Maybe by reports of some “neutral” eye witnesses on the location of alleged chemical attack or they already have their reporters from CNN, NBC, Fox news, etc. on standby somewhere in Idlibstan…

Will they? I’m a bit tempted to think nothing will happen or… Not the way many here think, e.g. serious Russian footage of White Helmets+HTS preparing a chemical attack with so many drones and sat a 3D footage will soon be released, then the militants being at the final receiving-end of strikes and even USAF allowed to operate over Idlib… Look, Turkey is at odds with the US, aren’t they?

Social networks. Facebook and Twitter are on standby. Expect “syrian girl” to post some “heart braking” revelations.

If Syrian Forces are not going to defend their Country now,then neither Iran nor Russia will ensure their survival as an independent nation.
This forseeable attack will be a great opportunity if Syrian forces instead of intercepting missiles, will respond by firing thousands of missiles towards all adversaries to neutralize them all in single shot.

All this would never be happening if Russia had b***s and a tad of honour to show its teeth and defend its faithful Syrian ally as a true ally should.

Abu : where is the steel wall between 2 mountains allah built to blockade Gog and Magog until allah blows his horn at the end of times and let Gog+Magog rush by opening the wall, the same way Sauron troops are unleashed at the end of the ‘Return of the King’.
Referring to Surat 3.54, he’s the best of all deceivers… And in othes’ culture, the ‘Great Deceiver’ is a metaphor for… the devil…
