Military Expert: US Seeking to Form ISIL Gov't in Syrian Borders
TEHRAN (FNA)- A prominent Syrian military expert warned that Washington seeks to establish an ISIL state at Syria's bordering regions, stressing that the army will fight against the Americans in al-Tanf region, if necessary.

Brigadier General Mohammad Issa said that the plot to overthrow Bashar al-Assad's government does not work at all, specially with the army's current situation and upper hand.

"Sending the US missiles to al-Tanf is a US theatre to create a small ISIL state along the Syrian, Iraqi and Jordanian borders to separate Syria from Iraq and Iran and turn it into a marginalized country which doesn’t play any role in the region," he added.

Issa explained that the small state is also meant to facilitate building the Qatar-Saudi Arabia gas pipeline to Turkey and then to Europe.

He added that the Syrian army will foil the US plot by advancing towards the Iraqi borders and linking itself to Hashd al-Shaabi forces, insisting on liberation of al-Tanf.

Noting that direct military conflict with the US forces deployed in al-Tanf- who are permanently showing off their military power - is unlikely, Issa said the Syrian army is ready to fight against the Americans on Syrian territories, if necessary.

The Russian Defense Ministry said on Thursday that the United States has redeployed HIMARS rocket artillery from Jordan to Syria.

"The US has redeployed two High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems from Jordan to a US special operations forces base near the Syrian town of al-Tanf [18 kilometers from the Jordanian border]. Deployment of any foreign weaponry to Syria, especially multiple artillery rocket systems, has to be coordinated with the sovereign state's government", the ministry's statement read.

It noted that "the range of HIMARS cannot allow for providing support for US-controlled Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) operating against Daesh in Raqqa".

"The US-led anti-Daesh coalition has several times already attacked Syrian government forces fighting Daesh near the Jordanian border. It is possible to assume that similar strikes could be continued in the future, involving HIMARS from now on. So what objectives is the US pursuing in Syria and whom are the US servicemen fighting there?", the statement said.

On May 18, the US-led coalition struck pro-Bashar Assad forces near al-Tanf in the area of an established de-confliction zone. The coalition air raids occurred near al-Tanf, where US' and British special operations forces have been training militants near the border with Iraq and Jordan.

On June 6, the Pentagon announced the coalition conducted a new strike on pro-Syrian government forces as they entered the de-confliction zone with Russia and posed threat to its personnel. The force comprised of a tank, artillery, anti-aircraft weapons, armed technical vehicles and more than 60 soldiers. At least two Syrian servicemen were killed and more than 15 injured as a result of the coalition attack.

On June 8, the US-led coalition bombed pro-Damascus forces near al-Tanf in the area of a de-confliction zone following an alleged attack by a combat drone resulting in no coalition forces' casualties. This was the third attack by the coalition on Damascus' allies in the area. The coalition targeted a drone and trucks with weapons.

シリアの次はフィリッピンか 米国のテロ退治を口実とした介入





Philippines Claims Control of 90 Percent of Marawi
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Philippine government announced that its troops have taken control of 90 percent of Marawi city, after fighters who swore allegiance to ISIL seized it three weeks ago.
The latest news comes just a day after a politician said that residents fleeing the city had seen scores of bodies, as intense fighting between security forces and ISIL continued, Al Jazeera reported.
"Dead bodies, at least 100, scattered around the encounter area," Zia Alonto Adiong, a politician in the area who is helping in rescue and relief efforts, said, referring to accounts he had received from fleeing residents.
The military said it could not confirm the report.
Thousands have been forced to leave their homes, as about 150 fighters are still putting up a fight in Marawi.
Rescuers fear that hundreds of people may still be trapped as fighting continues, and that many of them face starvation or have been killed in the crossfire.
Many of the displaced are currently living in evacuation centres across Lanao province.
The army has said 290 people have been killed in the fighting, including 206 fighters, 58 soldiers and 26 civilians.
Lieutenant-Colonel Jo-Ar Herrera, a military spokesman, said troops were advancing towards the commercial centre of Marawi, which is held by the fighters.
"We intend to finish the fight as soon as possible. Our tactical commanders are doing their best," Herrera added.
But many of the remaining ISIL-linked fighters had taken up sniper positions, he stressed, complicating the advance.
"The battlefield is very fluid," he underlined.

‘Dirty’ Duterte on the ropes as ISIS, US Special Forces crash the Philippines

Jihadist fighters may have escaped besieged city – Philippines official
The Philippines military has said that the Islamic State-linked militants occupying the city of Marawi are “too degraded” to launch further attacks, however there are fears that some jihadists may have escaped the besieged city.

Speaking at a press briefing Friday, a spokesman for the armed forces conceded that some of the jihadists who occupied the city in the southern province of Mindanao may have escaped the city by posing as evacuees.

Brigadier General Restituto Padilla said security has been tightened in nearby cities Iligan and Cagayan de Oro, and authorities are on the lookout for anyone who might "attempt to sow some confusion or sow terror,” Reuters report.
Padilla stressed that the jihadists are “significantly degraded,” adding they do not have the ability to stage Marawi-like occupations in other cities.

He also said that the militants in the city are weakening: “Enemy resistance continues to dwindle and enemy-held areas continues to get smaller as troops advance."

However, the military has failed to hit previous deadlines to defeat the occupation, which has now gone on for nearly four weeks.

Padilla’s comments come amid reports that some militants have slipped out of the besieged city and are now in the surrounding areas. He said talk of the escaped fighters launching attacks in neighboring towns was based on “misinformation that's being spread by the enemies.”

Earlier this week, Mohammad Noaim Maute, whose brothers Omarkhayam and Abdullah lead the Maute group of militants, was arrested at a checkpoint near Cagayan de Oro. It’s believed he is a bomb maker for the group.

The Maute and Abu Sayyaf terrorist groups, both of which have pledged allegiance to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), have occupied Marawi since May 23. Much of the city has been destroyed by the intense fighting which has displaced more than 320,000 residents, Philippine news outlet ABS-CBN reports.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte placed the entire island of Mindanao under martial law after the militants laid siege to the city.

Official estimates say that more than 300 people have been killed during nearly four weeks of fighting. The figure includes 225 militants, 59 soldiers and 26 civilians.

Residents fleeing the city reported seeing at least 100 dead bodies in an area which had seen heavy fighting.

Duterte claims ‘never approached’ US for help in battle against Islamist militants (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has denied media reports claiming he requested US Special Forces assistance in the battle for Marawi City, saying on Sunday that he “never approached America” for help.

“I am not aware of that until they arrived,” Duterte said when discussing the latest developments in Marawi City.

Duterte’s comments follow a 14-hour battle Friday that killed 13 Philippines military personnel and left 40 wounded, the heaviest losses sustained so far in operations to retake the city occupied by ISIS-affiliated militants.

Since May 23 when fighting began, 58 Philippines soldiers have died.

The mother of the mastermind brothers that founded the Islamic State-affiliated Maute group was arrested on Friday by the Philippines National Police. Ominta Romato Maute was arrested in the town of Masiu, Lanao del Sur.

Her sons, Omar Romato Maute and Abdullah Romato Maute, are suspected of conspiring with Isnilon Hapilon, leader of the Islamist group Abu Sayyaf, in masterminding the attack on Marawi City.

During the arrest, police seized high-powered firearms and multiple improvised explosive devices and rocket-propelled grenades.

Local Philippines journalist Chiara Zambrano, who has been closely monitoring the situation on the ground near Marawi City, tweeted police claims that the convoy escorting the Maute mother was fired upon, with several casualties.

The brothers’ father, Cayamora Maute, was apprehended Tuesday morning at a military checkpoint in Sirawan, Davao City, ABS-CBN reports.

Philippine President Not Aware of US Support in Marawi
TEHRAN (FNA)- Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte announced that he did not seek support from Washington to end the siege of a Southern Philippines city by the so-called Maute group.

Duterte told a news conference in Cagayan de Oro City, about 100 km from the besieged Marawi, that he had "never approached America" for help, TRT reported.

When asked about US support to fight the Maute group in Marawi City on the island of Mindanao, Duterte said he was "not aware of that until they arrived."

As the Philippine Army is struggling to defeat the terrorists who are attempting to hold the city of Marawi, reports revealed that US special forces joined an ongoing battle against ISIL militants in the Southern Philippines town of Marawi, following months of tension between Washington and Manila.

According to a statement by the US embassy, US special forces are helping the Philippines Army as they attempt to get rid of militants in South of the country. According to US embassy, Washington offered support at the request of the Philippines government; it has however refused to provide further details.

"At the request of the government of the Philippines, US special operations forces are assisting the [Philippine Army] with ongoing operations in Marawi," a US embassy spokesperson stated.

A spokesperson for the US Army detailed that US forces were not involved in combat, but were "providing technical support."

According to the statement from the US embassy, Washington will "continue to work with the Philippines to address shared threats to the peace and security of our countries, including on counterterrorism issues."

The Philippines military also announced in a statement that US forces are not fighting, but providing technical assistance to end the siege of Marawi City.

Philippine troops are struggling to dislodge at least 200 militants, who are holed up in the city of Marawi since last month. An estimated of 500 to 1,000 civilians are trapped in the town, some of them are being used as human shields.The US so-called technical support to the Philippines military is now happening despite strained ties between Washington and Manila and former calls by President Rodrigo Duterte that he wanted US troops out of his country. Some 200,000 have been displaced and 250 killed in the ongoing armed conflict in Marawi.

Duterte repeatedly clashed with Washington over his anti-drug campaign, which was criticized by the US and rights groups.

US President Donald Trump, however, invited Duterte to the White House in April saying, “The Philippines is very important to me strategically and militarily.”

Russia: Airstrike may have killed Daesh leader
Russia's Defense Ministry says its airstrike may have killed Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the Syrian city of Raqqah.

In a statement released on Friday, the ministry said it was seeking confirmation that the Takfiri leader was killed in its airstrike in the Syrian city of Raqqah in May.

The airstrike, carried out on May 28, targeted a meeting of Daesh leaders including Baghdadi whose real name is Ibrahim al-Samarrai.

"According to the information which is now being checked via various channels, Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who was eliminated by the airstrike, was also present at the meeting," it said.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the airstrike killed 330 Daesh members, including 30 top leaders, who had gathered to discuss withdrawal from Raqqah, the terrorist group's de facto capital.

It said the military began planning the attack after getting information that Daesh leaders were going to gather for a meeting, sending drones to monitor the area. It then dispatched a group of Su-34 bombers and Su-35 fighter jets which hit the gathering.

The ministry said that among other Takfiri militants killed in the raid were Daesh leaders Abu al-Khadji al-Mysri, Ibrahim al-Naef al-Khadj and Suleiman al-Shauah.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Russia does not have 100% confirmation that Baghdadi was killed in the airstrike.

Baghdadi has not been seen in public since proclaiming himself "caliph" in the Iraqi city of Mosul three years ago. His group has earned global notoriety for the most horrible crimes, including beheadings.

The Iraqi-born most-wanted man has been rumored wounded or killed a number of times in the past.

The Russian military said the US was informed in advance about the place and time of the strike. The US said it could not confirm the Russian report that Baghdadi may have been killed.

It's news in RT-quoting the Dept of Defense; usually the Russians don't issue cheap statements.

TEHRAN (FNA)- ISIL terrorist group's Chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has likely been killed in an airstrike conducted by the Russian Air Force, well-informed sources reported according to regional media outlets.

The Russian Defense Ministry has said an investigation is underway to ascertain whether al-Baghdadi was killed in an airstrike conducted late last month, Khaama press reported.

According to a statement by the Russian defense ministry carried in reports by the local media outlets, al-Baghdadi was targeted along with at least 300 other insurgents and 30 top leaders of the terror group.

The statement further added that the airstrike was carried out on 28th May in Raqqa city.

The ISIL terrorist group has not commented regarding the reports so far.

This is not the first time reports have emerged regarding the death of the terror group’s leader which have proven as false.

This comes as earlier reports emerged suggesting that al-Baghdadi was critically injured in an airstrike.


Syria: Russia Monitoring Situation in Raqqa as ISIL Militants Leaving Northeastern City
TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Russian military forces in Syria Col. Gen. Sergei Surovikin said that his soldiers are closely monitoring the situation in Raqqa.

"The command of the Russian military group in the Syria is closely monitoring the situation in the area of Raqqa, where we observe the militants freely leaving the city and its suburbs," Surovikin added.

Local sources reported on Tuesday that ISIL was planning to announce Deir Ezzur city as its new capital in Syria after the US-backed Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) inked an agreement with the ISIL that allows militants' exit from Raqqa city without a battle.

The sources said that while the US and the SDF permitted ISIL terrorists to leave their capital city of Raqqa without clashes, the Takfiri terrorists were moving towards Deir Ezzur in groups.

In the meantime, the Russian-language Izvestia daily reported that the agreement between the SDF and ISIL on evacuation of terrorists from Raqqa caused intensified ISIL attacks on pro-government forces' positions in Deir Ezzur.
