Isis caliphate defeated: Victory declared as Islamic State loses last of its territory
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/isis-caliphate-over-islamic-state-territory-lose-syria-iraq-terrorists-jihadis-a8781896.html


'The self-styled Isis caliphate, which once stretched for thousands of miles and ruled over millions of people, has been declared defeated.

The end for the terrorist state came in the village of Baghouz, in Syria’s eastern Deir ez-Zor province, following a months-long final battle.

“Syrian Democratic Forces declare total elimination of so-called caliphate and 100 per cent territorial defeat of Isis,” said Mustafa Bali, spokesman of the US-backed group. Mr Bali added: “On this unique day, we commemorate thousands of martyrs whose efforts made the victory possible.”

Theresa May praised the “immense courage of the UK military and our allies” following the announcement. “We will continue to do what is necessary to protect the British people, our Allies and partners from the threat Daesh poses,” the prime minister said.

French President Emmanuel Macron said that “a major danger to our country is now eliminated, yet the threat remains and the fight against terrorist groups must continue.”

Britain and France were junior partners in the US-led coalition that helped turn the tide against Isis when it joined the fight in 2014.

In a later statement, Donald Trump said Washington would “remain vigilant” until the group “is finally defeated wherever it operates”. To “all of the young people on the internet” who felt attracted by Isis’ propaganda, he said: “Think instead about having a great life.”

The last fight was one of the toughest yet. After years of steadily clawing back territory from Isis across northeast Syria, in September the SDF surrounded the last pocket of Isis control in an isolated string of villages along the eastern banks of the Euphrates river.

These hamlets became the last holdout for the group’s most hardened fighters and leaders. With nowhere else to run, many decided to fight to the bitter end, leading to massive casualties on both sides. The SDF said Saturday that it had lost 11,000 fighters over the course of the campaign.'

US blocks Syrian-Russian delegation from occupied Al Tanf zone, rejects talks on trapped refugees
http://www.rt.com/news/454820-us-block-access-rukban-camp/





'The US troops occupying a 55-km zone in southern Syria have blocked Russian and Syrian diplomatic and military officials from entering. The delegation said they wanted to assess the state of the ill-famed Rukban refugee camp.

The delegation was denied access to the Al Tanf zone, where it planned to monitor and conduct detailed assessments of refugees living at the remote and overpopulated Rukban camp.

They had also invited US officials for a meeting to “develop step-by-step activities” aimed at dismantling the camp, however, both offers were rebuffed by the US command.

The American side, which is directly responsible for what is happening in the Al Tanf zone illegally occupied by them, ignored the initiative aimed at saving the residents of Rukban and refused to participate in the coordination meeting,” said the joint statement by Russia-Syria coordination center on refugee repatriation.

Noting that the US command’s position was “puzzling,” the center added that the refusal of access to the zone was under the “false pretenses” of humanitarianism. Instead, it accused the Americans of “trying to hide crimes” against Syrians living in the US-occupied zone.

“Despite assurances from our American partners about joint cooperation, their goal is clearly not to save people dying from unsanitary, hunger, cold and diseases of the Syrian citizens,” the statement added.'

US Media Pretend ISIS Defeated






Establishment US (and other Western) media operate as press agents for wealth, power and privileged interests - notably supporting their wars of aggression on nations threatening no one.

Substituting rubbish for truth and full disclosure on major issues, they’re a collective lying machine, a laughing stock - anti-journalism, not the real thing.

On what’s been going on in Syria since March 2011, they consistently lie and deceive, calling US aggression “civil war.” There’s nothing remotely “civil” about it - the plot hatched by the Obama regime in cahoots with NATO, Israel and other regional rogue states.

Russia’s intervention in September 2015 to combat US-supported terrorists in Syria foiled its best laid plans. War continues with no end of it in prospect because bipartisan US hardliners reject resolution.

Major US-led Western media also pretend the Pentagon and so-called “coalition” partners (largely Britain, France, Israel, the Saudis, UAE and Jordan) are combatting the scourge of ISIS they support.

The same goes for other jihadists, used as imperial foot soldiers - heavily armed by the West, Israel, and their imperial partners to topple Assad, partition the country, and eliminate Syrian sovereignty.

All wars are based on Big Lies and deception, supported by major media. They wouldn’t get out of the starting gate without them serving as imperial press agents.

Following phony official claims about the non-defeat/defeat of ISIS, the NYT headlined “ISIS Caliphate Crumbles as Last Village in Syria Falls.”

No such “caliphate” existed earlier or now. US-supported terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere are replicas of each other, their names irrelevant, their missions all that matters - serving US imperial interests.

According to Times disinformation, reporting the official narrative exclusively, “(a)  four-year military operation to flush the Islamic State from its territory in Iraq and Syria ended on Saturday as the last village held by the terrorist group was retaken, erasing a militant theocracy that once spanned two countries.”

Fact: ISIS and likeminded groups continue to threaten nations where the US deploys them - in Syria and Iraq, operating from US bases, given safe haven cross-border in Turkey, Jordan, and Israeli occupied Golan.

Claiming ISIS is defeated in Syria and Iraq is state-sponsored propaganda, repeated by establishment media, ignoring reality on the ground.

The Times embarrassed itself, saying “a grueling campaign, the last speck of land was finally wrested from the Islamic State.”

At the same time, the self-styled newspaper of record said it “remains a serious threat (because) (m)any of its top leaders are still alive” - failing to explain they’re given safe haven on US bases and by its imperial allies.

Nor explaining that the Pentagon, CIA, and their counterparts in allied regimes continue to replenish their ranks. The Times saying ISIS “is now a diminished force compared to its zenith four years ago” is meaningless.

Terrorist proxies by their various names serve as US ground troops, countless thousands deployed in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya and elsewhere.

Their ranks can be increased to whatever levels US military planners intend. It’s irrelevant whether they’re called ISIS, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, or anything else. They’re virtual replicas of each other - what the Times and other Western media never explain, nor that they serve US imperial interests. According to the neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post,”(t)he (nonexistent) ‘caliphate’ is no more, (b)ut the Islamic State isn’t finished yet,” adding:

“US-backed forces declared the final defeat of the Islamic State’s self-declared caliphate Saturday, bringing to an end the brutal experiment in state building that had lured foot soldiers from around the world and inflicted unimaginable suffering on those caught up in the militants’ rampage through Iraq and Syria.”

Reality is far different from the above remarks. The US and its imperial partners continue supporting the scourge of terrorism wherever its fighters are deployed.

There’s no shortage of crazies to fill their ranks. Like crabgrass, they’re everywhere in unlimited numbers.

The Wall Street Journal joined the ISIS is defeated chorus, saying “(t)he demise (sic) of the group’s self-proclaimed caliphate (sic) comes as President Trump prepares to pull US troops from Syria (sic).”

ISIS and likeminded jihadist groups are far from defeated. Reports claiming it are greatly exaggerated.

The US plans permanent occupation of northern and southern Syria, along with strategic parts of Iraq, and elsewhere in the Middle East, Central Asia, and Africa.

The struggle to end ongoing US wars of aggression continues because bipartisan hardliners in Washington reject resolution.

US Training ISIS Militants At Al-Tanf To Attack Syrian Oil Fields

US Training ISIS Militants At Al-Tanf To Attack Syrian Oil Fields
http://www.fort-russ.com/2019/03/revealed-us-training-isis-militants-at-al-tanf-to-attack-syrian-oil-fields/





'According to sources in the Syrian government army, several thousand militants of the Islamic State (outlawed in Russia), who previously surrendered outside the settlement of al-Baguz on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, were transported to the At-Tanf zone through the territories of Iraq and Jordan under the American escort. Those were mostly people from local tribes dwelling in the Syrian and Iraqi territories. Their families and relatives were sent as hostages to Al-Hol camp in Al-Hasakah province.

Most militants were sent to training camps that account for at as many as ten in the American-occupied territory. There are representatives of the group known as “Majmuat Abu Husam” actively working with them. This is sort of “Bedouin special forces” created by Arab employees of American private military companies in Iraq who later joined ISIS. In exchange for the possibility of amnesty and the well-being of their relatives, the militants are demanded to take part in an operation aimed to establish control over the territory of the so-called White Desert. What is primarily meant here is the attack against the infrastructure of crude oil extracting and processing in the Homs province, namely the districts of Jisal, Ash-Shair, Mahrur and Tvenan north of Palmyra, as well as the Khneifis phosphate mines. These territories have fallen under control of government troops with the support of Russian aviation in 2017 and remain an extremely attractive target to ISIS terrorists and their patrons.

Apart from that, the Americans are interested in the elimination of government posts along the strategic Deir ez-Zor – Damascus route. Currently, militant groups of the Islamic State that came here through the At-Tanf zone are already demonstrating their aggressive behavior in the White Desert. Over the past ten days, at least twenty Syrian soldiers have been killed in such attacks.'

Civilian airport hit as Israel strikes area around Aleppo – reports






Syrian air defense forces have repelled an attack by Israel which rained down missiles on the area to the north-east of Aleppo, SANA said. There have been reports of a blackout in the city and a civilian airport being targeted.

A military source cited by the SANA news agency reported that the attack unfolded around 11pm local time (9pm GMT), forcing Damascus to activate its missile shield to shoot down a number of incoming rockets.

The Israeli missiles reportedly targeted the Sheikh Najjar industrial area to the northeast of Aleppo and the settlement of Jibrin, a local militia source told Sputnik. The source said that the rockets also targeted a civilian airport in the city, which has been under the Syrian government's control since December 2016. According to multiple reports, Aleppo plunged into darkness in the wake of the raid due to a massive power outage.

Israel, having targeted what it claimed were Iranian positions within Syria in the past, has not commented on the goals of the latest alleged strikes.

Reports on social media suggested that one of the targets might have been an ammunition depot near Al-Nayrab military airbase, to the southeast of Aleppo.

Syria’s Rukban Now Little More Than a US-Controlled Concentration Camp – and the Pentagon Won’t Let Refugees Leave
http://www.mintpressnews.com/syrias-rukban-little-more-than-a-u-s-controlled-concentration-camp-and-the-pentagon-wont-let-refugees-leave/256689/





DAMASCUS, SYRIA — The United States military has rejected offers to resolve the growing humanitarian crisis in the Rukban refugee camp in Syria, which sits inside a 55 km zone occupied by the U.S. along the Syria-Jordan border. The U.S. has also refused to let any of the estimated 40,000 refugees — the majority of which are women and children — leave the camp voluntarily, even though children are dying in droves from lack of food, adequate shelter and medical care. The U.S. has also not provided humanitarian aid to the camp even though a U.S. military base is located just 20 km (12.4 miles) away.

The growing desperation inside the Rukban camp has received sparse media coverage, likely because of the U.S.’ control over the area in which the camp is located. The U.S. has been accused of refusing to let civilians leave the area — even though nearly all have expressed a desire to either return to Syrian government-held territory or seek refuge in neighboring countries such as Turkey — because the camp’s presence helps to justify the U.S.’ illegal occupation of the area. Though the U.S. has long justified its presence in al-Tanf as necessary to defeat Daesh (ISIS), the U.S. government has also acknowledged that al-Tanf’s true strategic importance lies in U.S. efforts to “contain” Iran by blocking a connection from Iran to Syria through Iraq. Al-Tanf lies near the area where the borders of Syria, Iraq and Jordan meet. Thus, in the U.S.’ game of brinkmanship with Iran, Rukban’s estimated 40,000 inhabitants have become pawns whose basic needs are ignored by their occupiers.

On Tuesday, delegations from Russia, Syria, the UN, and the Rukban refugee camp met to discuss the fate of the camp’s inhabitants after a UN survey found that 95 percent of the camp’s inhabitants wanted to leave the camp, while 83 percent wanted to return to their hometowns in areas of Syria now under Syrian government control.

However, the U.S. military and State Department officials in nearby Jordan rejected an invitation to Tuesday’s meeting. The U.S. military also prohibited a Syrian-Russian delegation from entering the Rukban camp on Tuesday. The delegation had sought to assess conditions in the camp, which have become increasingly desperate according to reports from a variety of outlets, including U.S. government-funded outlets like Voice of America.'

Saudi Arabia ‘absolutely rejects’ any steps impacting Syrian sovereignty over Golan heights
http://www.rt.com/news/455190-saudi-king-golan-syria-sovereignty/





'Saudi King Salman said he “absolutely rejects” any steps that would undermine Syrian sovereignty over the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, after US President Donald Trump recognized the area as Israeli territory.

Speaking at an Arab League event in Tunisia on Sunday, Salman also reiterated his support for a ‘two-state solution’ for Israel and Palestine, with East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.

His remarks came as a strong rebuff to US President Donald Trump, who signed a declaration last week officially recognizing the Golan Heights as part of Israel. The strategic area was captured from Syria during the Six-Day War in 1967, and has since remained under Israeli control. In 1981, the UN Security Council unanimously voted to declare the Israeli annexation of the Golan Heights illegal and demanded that Tel Aviv “rescind” it.

Trump's move, not surprisingly, was praised by the Israeli government and drew fierce criticism from Syria, which blasted the annexation of its territory as “null and void.”

The issue also caused a rift with some of the US’ NATO allies. French leader Emmanuel Macron said that the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights “violates international law and creates tension in the region.”

On Sunday, the EU’s foreign affairs chief, Federica Mogherini, stressed that ignoring the UN’s position on the Golan Heights is “not a solution.”

The Saudi king’s affirmation of East Jerusalem as Palestinian is another clear rebuke of Washington’s policy, since Trump recognized the whole of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and moved the US embassy there from Tel Aviv. That also did not go down well with Washington’s allies as some cautioned saying it put the whole perspective of the peace process in jeopardy.'

Any resolution of Syria conflict must guarantee its territorial integrity: UN
http://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/03/31/592279/Arab-League-Tunis-Guterres-Mogherini-Golan-Heights-Beji-Caid-Essebsi-Palestine





'Secretary General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres has stressed the importance of guaranteeing Syria's sovereignty and territorial integrity in any resolution on the conflict in the Arab country.

Quote
“Any resolution of the Syrian conflict must guarantee the unity, [and] the territorial integrity of Syria, including the occupied Golan,” he said in an address to an Arab League summit in the Tunisian capital of Tunis on Sunday.


As “millions of Syrians remain displaced and in need, and tens of thousands are arbitrarily detained…we must keep working to forge a political path to a sustainable peace in which all Syrians are heard, grievances are addressed, and needs are met,” he added. Guterres' remarks came days after US President Donald Trump broke decades of international consensus and formally recognized Israeli "sovereignty" over the occupied Golan Heights, a border area the Tel Aviv regime seized from Syria in 1967.

“This was a long time in the making. Should have taken place decades ago,” Trump said while signing the proclamation in the presence of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump's Jewish son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, in the White House in Washington, DC.

However, a Wednesday meeting of the UN Security Council turned into another stage for the isolation of the US, as other countries on the council opposed Trump’s move on Golan.

Addressing the meeting, Syria's Ambassador to the United Nations Bashar Jaafari lashed out at President Trump's recognition, describing the move as part of a “criminal project” aimed at prolonging chaos and destruction in the region.'
