It does not matter where the West stand from the Syrian legitimate government, what matters is where the people do.

There is only one legitimate government in Syria, and only one legitimate army, and both are lead by Commander in Chief Bashar al-Assad, president of the Syrian Arab Republic.

The Syrian Arab Armed Forces and the majority of the Syrian People are in support Commander in Chief Bashar Hafiz al-Assad.

We did not start this war, but we will end it on our terms.

Israel Strikes Syrian Army Positions after Allied Terrorists Lose Strategic Village in Quneitra

TEHRAN (FNA)- The fall of a strategic village in the province of Quneitra, Southern Syria, that was controlled by the terrorists forced Israel’s direct intervention to compensate for the loss.

The Israeli attack came after the Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance forces took control of a strategic village in Quneitra on Sunday.

The army and resistance forces launched heavy attacks on terrorists’ positions in Taranja region of Quneitra and after several hours of clashes won control over Taranja region.

Taranja was of highly strategic importance for the terrorists because of its vicinity to the Israeli border.

The Israeli fighter jets severely hit the Mahyress artillery battalion of the Syrian army just hours after the army and Hezbollah forces took control of Taranja.

Mahyress artillery battalion has played a very important role in the Syrian army’s victory in Taranja.

The Israeli forces also targeted Syrian army’s Brigade 90, al-Bavandi hilltops and Naba al-Favar region in the center of Quneitra.

Ealier today, local sources in Khan Arnabeh said that the Israeli Forces fired 6 missiles into the village of Mahyress located near the besieged hills of Tal Al-Ahmar and Tal Al-Qaba’a inside the predominately Druze town of Hadar in the Golan Heights.

The missiles did minimal damage to the Syrian Armed Forces’ defensive positions; however, the soldiers protecting the strategic hilltops of Tal Al-Ahmar and Tal Al-Qaba’a believe that these missile strikes were an attempt to help the militants of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and al-Nusra Front to infiltrate into the Syrian army troops’ fortifications.

This is not the first time that the Israeli Armed Forces have attacked the Syrian army inside the Golan Heights: in early August, the Israeli Air Force repeatedly struck the Syrian army in the towns of Hadar and Khan Al-Sheih after the Israeli forces’ Spokesperson reported that a missile entered Upper Galilee from the Syrian border.

Last year, the Israeli forces struck the Syrian army at the UN Ceasefire Border-Crossing after they alleged a rocket entered Israel from Al-Quneitra; this paved the way for the al-Qaeda- affiliate al-Nusra Front to take full-control over this border-crossing.

ISIL Withdraws from Eastern Hasaka

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Kurdish popular forces pushed the ISIL Takfiri terrorists back from their positions near the city of Hasaka.

The ISIL terrorists have started sporadic attacks on the Kurdish forces after they were forced out of the city.

The Kurdish forces’ operations came as they have gained full control over the town of Ain Issa in Raqqa province.

On Friday, the Kurdish forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) launched an attack on headquarters of the ISIL in Jarabulus city North of Aleppo, near the border with Turkey, local sources said.

The YPG forces have targeted several ISIL positions in Jarabulus with mortars and heavy artillery.

YPG fighter Nuraddin Gaban told the agency on the phone that the Kurdish forces launched the attack from their bases in the villages of Zor Maghar, Nasiriya and Atto East of Jarabulus.

“Our shelling hit at least five ISIL targets in Jarabulus city on Friday, killing and injuring dozens of terrorists,” he said.

The YPG leadership has deployed hundreds of fighters alongside the Euphrates River in the Eastern countryside of Jarabulus in preparation for storming the ISIL strongholds in the area.

“Our forces have made a remarkable advance towards Jarabulus city after liberating the Western countryside of Kobani. The anti-ISIL operations will continue until reassuring our people’s safety from this terrorist group,” Gaban added.

Russian Air Forces to Use Hmamiyat Airfields to Bomb ISIL in Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Local sources said that the Chinese military will soon send its aircraft and aerial equipment to the Hmamiyat Airfields inside the Syrian Bassel Al-Assad International Airport to join the Russian and Syrian air fleet.

The recent news of the Chinese Navy’s imminent arrival in the Syrian port-city of Tartous has renewed the optimism that was once lost among the Syrian people living under the government-controlled parts of Syria, an Arab media outlet quoted informed sources as saying.

When the Chinese Navy finally arrives in Tartous, they will be welcomed by their Russian counterparts that are already stationed in Syria’s Western countryside; however, unlike their Russian allies, the Chinese will not likely send infantry units to deploy around the country, the sources said according to Massdar news website.

The Hmamiyat Airfields are located inside a section of the Bassel Al-Assad International Airport that has been used by the Syrian Air Force as an airbase to conduct flights along the vast coast – the airport itself is located in the Jableh district of Lattakia.

According to a senior officer in the Syrian army, the Hmamiyat Airfields are primarily used by the Russian Air Force at the moment, adding the Syrian Air Force moved most of their aerial equipment from the Bashar Al-Assad International Airport to the Homs Governorate in preparation for the Chinese Air Force’s arrival, the report added.

Russian Jets Use Iraqi Airspace to Monitor ISIL in East Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian Air Force has conducted over 20 reconnaissance flights above the Deir Ezzur governorate in Eastern Syria, capturing footage of the ISIL terrorists’ movements through their strategic supply route between Deir Ezzur and Anbar governorate in Western Iraq, military sources said.

A military source from the Syrian Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard told Massdar news website that the Russian Air Force has notified the Syrian army’s officers stationed at the Deir Ezzur airbase of their flights above the province, adding that these were merely for reconnaissance purposes and that they are coordinating with the Syrian Air Force to monitor the ISIL terrorist group’s movements.

While conducting these flights above the Deir Ezzur governorate’s cities of Al-Mayadeen, Abukamaal, and Mohassan, the Russian air force repeatedly crossed the Iraqi border and entered the Anbar governorate, where they flew as far East as the city of Al-Heel to capture footage of the ISIL terrorist group, the Massdar report said.

This is the second time in two weeks that the Russian air force has entered Iraq’s airspace; however, the Syrian military source asserted that they were granted approval by the Iraqi Armed Forces before crossing their border.
