Helicopters land at the Palmyra Military Airport after the Russian military successfully demined the area around it

Sattar al-Qanem quoted sources in the Iraqi army intelligence and the country’s popular forces of Hashd al-Sha’abi as saying that an American Chinook helicopter on Saturday landed in al-Jazeereh region near Salahuddin that is controlled by the ISIL terrorists, Fars News reported.

In the meantime, another American aircraft landed in an ISIS-held region near the village of Mak’houl North of Salahuddin, the report continued.

Hassan Salem, Member of Security Commission of the Iraqi Parliament, claimed that the US aircraft delivered food and aid for ISIS in al-Jazeereh region near the village of al-Salam and was on a mission to take some of the ISIL commanders and members away from the region.

The US and Israel are always guilty – for some confirmed Arab conspiratorialists. The only source and the ones picking it up are politically related.

The Iraqis have been saying this for a few years now. No news organisation in the west will pick it up. It is becoming the worst kept secret.

Yes one group and people politically related. That smells like MSM quality news – only made up from the other side this time.

Acabou a Farsa. Foram capturados dezenas de militares da Nato a apoiar o estado Islâmico.
Forças especiais Sírias capturaram 14 oficiais da Nato em Aleppo num bunker dos terroristas da Al nusra – estado Islâmico.
Segundo várias fontes internacionais para além dos 14 nomes já conhecidos divulgados pelo governo sírio (sabendo-se tratarem-se de nomes de guerra, técnica vulgarmente utilizada em operações secretas)
para além desses 14 nomes a Veteran today refer tambem quase 128 militares pertencentes à NATO.

Stangely, NONE of these 14 officers were presented publicly. As they surely have families, it’d make SERIOUS noise in the west… Unless this is pure bullshit and in this case, you may gain something for your domestic politics by some vague blah blah but if you really have captured them, it would fuel serious protests in the west. As long as it’s not done, and this alleged capture took place about + 1 month ago, sincerely, this is more than dubious. You can be sure James Bond comes with a MI6 card telling he’s 007 for sure!

What struck me most was the name of the alleged “Israeli NATO” officer. It is a Muslim terrorist style war name – using an older Christian aka, in the style of a surname, pointing out that he hails from Damascus. SIC! You need to know Your biblical maps or google it to notice. Plus one Christian or Jewish and one Israeli/Jewish fist name. p.s. I agree with You: And definitely no active NATO personnel. Like many terrorists some people hailing from NATO countries or maybe not. Real officers or better ex-officers as military advisers via Blackwater or other military contractors… Read more »

Yeah, but frankly, I even doubt about Contractors like the merge of ex-Blackwater+ex-Triple Canopy sending operatives in such an idiotic operation : they’re usually supplementing regular armies. I smell the serious bullshitting… Now we have the habitual naive persons that are believing this fake news was true. Gosh, had this been real, Assad would NEVER had missed to do a big show parading them even in a ceremony where they are transferred to the UN custody, then gather the UNGA, pfoouuuhhh, even MSM couldn’t hide something as big!

You seem to forget that ALL your source come from a single Syrian govt communiqué that was presented in december, thus, why those prisoners still haven’t been presented to the public? Such thing would be a real bomb in the west!… If they exist… Some of the sites you point are patented conspirationists. The guy from Réseau Voltaire hasn’t left France without reasons : if I remember well, he was sued for so many cases he couldn’t prove that without leaving, he’d have ended as a tramp… With his new friends, I doubt him to do his coming out with… Read more »

Arab customs. Like the English with the Germans after WW II. They need them economically but German bashing is custom. The Iraq government needs US help and money but there is the anti American sentiment in parts of the population/electorate.

You seem to forget about the little greys that landed in Roswell in 1947! They also built a secret base under Antarctica and on the dark side of the Moon! Thus, when a conspiracy turns to be true, seems no one is daring to talk about! Never heard about Hajj Amin al-Husseini? Or his nephew Mohammed Abdel-Raouf Arafat As Qudwa al-Hussaeini? You may surely better know the nephew as Yasser Arafat. He inherited his organisation from his uncle who once was Grand Mufti of al-Aqsa and the most known person in the post-WW2 Arab World… Uncle Amin had really nice… Read more »

13th Waffen SS Mountain Division called Handscharcomment image Mohammed Amin al-Husseini was not a German officer like You once claimed but Great Mufti of Jerusalem, an Arab anti Zionist nationalist. And he made a pact with the devil to fight what he saw as British and Zionist colonialism.

He wasn’t German, but neither was the Hansar division!
Grüppenführer = GENERAL! Amin was the general of this divison made of Bosnian muslim and had been ousted from being the grand mufti of Jerusalem by the brits as he was just a crazy bloodlusted motherfucker doing s**t for years! Actually, he was even worst than the devil you point as initially, Adolf considered to deport the Jews in their land and the Aktion Rheinhardt took place strangely after Adolf met the mufti. He also pushed to have the mobile gas-chambers to follow the Afrikakorps. In Tunis only, 1200 Jews were gassed…

You can keep saying that, but it isn’t going to make it true. No reputable historian thinks that Husseini inspired the Nazis to start committing genocide. In fact you’re actually spouting Neo-Nazi talking points: “Hitler just wanted to kick the Jews out of Germany, not kill them”.

SVP read the English or German Wikipedia articles about Mohammed Amin al-Husseini. NO. The commanders of 13th Mountain Division SS Handschar (short Balkan scimitar) were ethnic Germans. Quote: 2. Juli bis 9. August 1943: SS-Standartenführer Herbert von Obwurzer // 9. August 1943 bis Juni 1944: SS-Brigadeführer und Generalmajor der Waffen-SS Karl-Gustav Sauberzweig // Juni 1944 bis 8. Mai 1945: SS-Brigadeführer und Generalmajor der Waffen-SS Desiderius Hampel // The enlisted men were mostly Bosniacs (Muslim Bosnians) plus some ethnic Germans from the Kingdom of Serbia. Note. Before the Allied ethnic cleansings and genocides of WW II almost all countries on the… Read more »

I know all this about Palestinians liberation movement. But I also know that the Allies committed genocide and ethnic cleansings after WW II. So they are not the nights on the white horse. So did the Jews in Palestine during the fight for the holy land. All are bigots IMHO starting with UK that sold Palestine to the Zionists. And the Zionists that floated the bonds for Entente’s victory in WW I to get the Balfour declaration. That is why I thing the spiral of violence and revenge must be stopped. BTW. DaeshbagSX thinks Amin al-Hussein was a General in… Read more »

Trump is one not only a huge supporter of the the israeli criminals but is a zionist as well. Open your eyes and try to wake up. He and his neo-con advisors support also the turds, kurdIShIS thugs, who ethnically cleanse captured Syrian and Iraqi territories to the end of establishing Israel 2.0. Ever wonder why the takfiris do not attack the israelis or the kurds. You are quite delusional man. Mr. T is a fraud. How does it feel to be a chump for trump?

If You google the news. Sattar al-Qanem is the only source. And the words are always the same. Picked up by pro Iranian and allied news.

Hassan Salem is also known as being in the core leading team of an organisation that led hundreds if not thousands of anti-US attacks, mostly using EFPs. His gang, which is a split-off from al-Badr organisation, in much more violent, is very likely to fuel another sectarian war in Iraq when Daesh will be finished… I smell the serious bias behind this claim… Seems to be as true as Colin Powell about WMD. He says Iraq doesn’t need the muricans, well, just remember how his militia behaved after the US totally left the country on his friend’s al-Maliki demands… ISIL… Read more »

Seems a little dubious for me : Hassan Salem is a leader of Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq (AAH), an Iranian-backed Shi’a militant group that split from Moqtada al-Sadr’s Jaish al-Mahdi (JAM) in 2006. Since that time, AAH has conducted thousands of lethal explosively formed penetrator (EFP) attacks against U.S. and Iraqi forces, targeted kidnappings of Westerners, rocket and mortar attacks on the U.S. Embassy, the murder of American soldiers, and the assassination of Iraqi officials. In other terms, we can trust what he’s saying about the US as much as Collin Powell telling about Saddam’s WMDs… The guy has, according to… Read more »

Well, actually, it’s the Republik that boosted the fascists into the s**t they did… Now in some way history repeats, especially with Erdogan and some others as it always ends the same when you support extremists in order to not be tainted doing dirty job : with backfiring rivers of blood.

No – update Your history. It was the economic decline of the world, at its height on Black Friday, caused by the Versailles reparations, used by bankers to get rich that boosted Fascism not only in Germany but also e.g. France and the US. SIC! The Fascists claimed Jewish plutocrats were guilty because the were assumed to lead worlds banking. Only exception is: that in Germany at that time they had a gambler with battle trauma that succeeded in a selfcoup, committed genocide on those he felt were chiefly guilty of the situation and started a war of revenge on… Read more »
