シリア政府軍とクルド主体のSDFが初の衝突

FARSNEWS2017/6/19
TEHRAN (FNA)- The first clash between the Syrian army troops and the predominantly Kurdish-led Syrian democratic Forces (SDF) occurred North of the city of Rasafeh after a Syrian air force fighter jet was shot down by the US-led coalition warplanes West of Raqqa.

The Syrian army and SDF forces reportedly engaged in fierce clashes North of al-Rasafeh city and in areas surrounding Shavihayan and Jaydeen villages.

The Syrian troops tried to rescue the pilot of the Syrian air force's fighter jet, Ali Fahd, after his plane was shot down by the US-led forces, but they faced the US-backed forces.

In a relevant development on Sunday, the Syrian army backed by the country's air force continued its military operations in the Western part of Raqqa, after capturing ISIL's last bastion in Eastern Aleppo and has recaptured several districts in recent days.

The predominately SDF also intensified attacks on ISIL's defense lines in Raqqa from three directions to oust Takfiri terrorists out of the group's self-proclaimed capital.

Damascus announced in a statement on Sunday that the US-led coalition has shot down one of its fighter jets during a mission in Raqqa countryside.

According to the statement, the warplane was carrying out operations against ISIL in the countryside of Raqqa when it was targeted, leading to a crash and the loss of the pilot, who is currently missing.

“This attack comes at a time when the Syrian Arab army and its allies are advancing in the fight against ISIS (ISIL or Daesh) terrorists who are being defeated in the Syrian desert in more ways than one,” the statement read.

The statement stressed that although such attacks seek to undermine the Syrian armed forces’ struggle against terrorism, they will not be deterred in fighting for stability and security in the Syrian Arab Republic.

FARSNEWS2017/6/19
TEHRAN (FNA)- A Kurdish political analyst disclosed that Syria's fighter jet downed by the US-led coalition warplanes in Raqqa had not targeted any position of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Raqqa.

"The phrase used by the US shows that the Syrian warplane had not tried to hit the SDF positions and therefore the Damascus government's version of the story about the attacks on ISIL's positions is correct," Member of the Syrian Democratic Council Rizan Hadu said.

He said it is at this point that the US cannot make any lame excuses as it is trying to deteriorate the relations between the Syrian army and the SDF. "This issue will have negative effects on the conditions of Qamishli, Aleppo and Afrin and it will cause the Syrian army and the SDF to enter a marginal war which will be harmful to the war on terrorism.

Hadu also reiterated that Syria has the right to tell all sides that its strategy in fighting terrorism would never allow it to be a Troy horse to allow the US or any other side to use it in order to enter Syria.

Damascus announced in a statement on Sunday that the US-led coalition has shot down one of its fighter jets during a mission in Raqqa countryside.

Russian military halts Syria sky incident prevention interactions with US as of June 19 – Moscow

The Russian Defense Ministry announced it is halting cooperation with its US counterparts in the framework of the Memorandum on the Prevention of Incidents and Ensuring Air Safety in Syria following the coalition’s downing of a Syrian warplane.

事前航行通報が撃墜のために使われかねないわけですから当然です。

上の記事の続き
The ministry has demanded a thorough investigation by the US military command into the incident with the Syrian government military jet, with the results to be shared with the Russian side.

In the areas of combat missions of Russian air fleet in Syrian skies, any airborne objects, including aircraft and unmanned vehicles of the [US-led] international coalition, located to the west of the Euphrates River, will be tracked by Russian ground and air defense forces as air targets,” the Russian Ministry of Defense stated.

Downing the military jet within Syrian airspace “cynically” violates the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic, Russian military said.

The actions of the US Air Force are in fact “military aggression” against Syria, the statement adds.

The ministry emphasized that Russian warplanes were on a mission in Syrian airspace during the US-led coalition’s attack on the Syrian Su-22, while the coalition failed to use the communication line to prevent an incident.

“The command of the coalition forces did not use the existing communication channel between the air commands of Al Udeid Airbase (in Qatar) and the Khmeimim Airbase to prevent incidents in Syrian airspace.”

The ministry considers the move “a conscious failure to comply with the obligations under the Memorandum on the Prevention of Incidents and Ensuring Air Safety in Syria,” and is thus halting cooperation with the US within the memorandum framework as of June 19, the statement concluded.

Israel secretly aiding Syria militants: Wall Street Journal

Israel has been providing Takfiri terrorists in Syria’s Golan Heights with a steady flow of funds and medical supplies as part of Tel Aviv’s involvement in the bloody conflict, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The paper, citing half a dozen militant commanders and three persons familiar with Israel’s thinking, said Israel's “secret engagement” in the war aims to install a buffer zone on the Syrian border with elements friendly to Tel Aviv.

The report quoted prominent Israeli journalist and analyst Ehud Ya’ari as saying that Israel’s operation in the occupied Golan Heights started under former minister of military affairs Moshe Ya’alon.

Israel, the Journal said, established a special military unit in 2016 to oversee and coordinate the transfer of aid to militants. According to the report, the aid helps pay salaries of the terrorists and buy weapons and ammunition.

“Israel stood by our side in a heroic way,” a spokesman for the militant group Fursan al-Joulan, Moatasem al-Golani, said, adding “We wouldn’t have survived without Israel’s assistance.”

The commander identified by the nom de guerre Abu Suhayb who leads the terrorist group told the Journal that he receives about $5,000 a month from Israel.

Fursan al-Joulan which has approximately 400 militants in Quneitra province situated in the Golan Heights said at least four allied militant groups also receive Israeli aid.

Israel seized the Golan Heights from Syria after the 1967 Six-Day War and later occupied it in a move that has never been recognized by the international community.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Tel Aviv regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups wreaking havoc in Syria.

Last April, Syrian officials and locals confiscated a vehicle loaded with Israeli-manufactured weapons bound for Daesh terrorists in the Arab country’s southern province of Suwayda. The vehicle was heading to the eastern Badiya desert from eastern Dara’a Province.

Israel has been treating the wounded militants from Syria in its medical centers and hospitals since the outbreak of the conflict in March 2011. Syrian sources have frequently reported that after receiving treatment at the Israeli hospitals, the militants return to Syria to continue their acts of sabotage and terror.

Israel has spent millions of dollars for the treatment of militants injured in fighting with Syrian government forces, documents from Israeli hospitals have shown.

The regime has also carried out multiple attacks on Syrian government positions since the militancy erupted in 2011. Damascus says the raids aim to help Takfiri militants fighting against government forces.

イラク軍が南部のシリア国境の支配を回復

ISISがラッカからデリゾール、さらにはパルミラ、南部ヨルダン国境近くに兵士を移動しています。米軍の采配によるもので米軍はアルタンフに進軍してきた政府軍同盟勢力の車列を爆撃しました。
アルタンフの近くには、米国が設置した兵士訓練施設があります。シリアがこの地域に軍基地を設置する動きを始めており米軍との衝突が懸念されることからラブロフが牽制発言をしています。
アルタンフとアルワリードの国境通過点は、ダマスカスとバクダッドを結ぶ最重要な道路で民生物資を運ぶトラックが通過するほか、テロリストにとっても主要な補給経路ですからこの国境通過点がそれぞれシリア、イラク政府軍の支配下になったことはテロリストには大きな障害ができたことになります。これより北の国境通過点はユーフラテス川沿いのアブカマルになります。
2017/6/18、米国同盟がラッカの南でシリア軍戦闘機を撃墜しました。クルド主体のSDFとシリア政府軍が衝突したためその援護だとしています。米国は、シア情勢がテロリスト側に急速に悪化しており、焦りを強めているはずです。

Iraq seizes key crossing near Syria from Daesh
Iraqi forces have seized from Daesh one of the official border crossings between the country and Syria, thus choking a key supply line feeding the Takfiri terrorist group.

Al-Waleed, which together with two other passageways links Iraq and Syria, came under government control on Saturday, Reuters reported.

The advance took place as the Syrian government and its allies too are hemming the terrorists in on the other side of the border.

Al-Waleed is close to the al-Tanf crossing on the common border, which is the key to the Baghdad-Damascus Highway and also links up to the main Baghdad-Amman route.

Daesh seized al-Waleed in May 2015, almost a year into its deadly terror campaign in Syria and Iraq. It used the bridgehead to expand its grip there to the entirety of the common border.

Syrian forces are, meanwhile, advancing toward al-Tanf, where the US forces have been based since last year on a mission to train anti-Damascus militants.

Russian Commander: US Preventing End of War in Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- Colonel Sergei Surovikin, the commander of Russian forces in Syria, confirmed the Syrian army's intensified military operations in several regions in the country, and said Washington is blocking termination of war in Syria.

Surovikin stressed that the Syrian army forces and their allies have advanced in several strategic regions, and said the speed of the Syrian soldiers' advances has increased to 8km per day.

He voiced regret that as the Syrian troops are retaking control of all bordering areas with Iraq and Jordan, they are facing the obstacle of the US-led coalition's warplanes.

Surovikin said that the US justifies its acts by absurd reasons such as the Syrian army forces' danger to the US bases and the training bases for the opposition groups in Southern Syria, and added that they pretend to forget that the army units are supporting their own country and no foreign side is entitled to decide for or stand against their anti-terrorism operations.

Meantime, analysts believe hat the US targeting of the Syrian army is an evidence showing that Washington has hatched plots to interfere in Syria's internal affairs and proves this fact that the US strategy is based on overthrowing the Syrian government by supporting the terrorist groups.

Also, earlier this month, the Russian military had accused the US-led coalition in Syria of providing safe corridors for the ISIL to leave the area around its stronghold of Raqqa.

Surovikin said ISIL has made a deal earlier this month with the Kurdish forces to leave two villages Southwest of Raqqa and move toward Palmyra.

Surovikin said the US-led coalition along with the allied Kurds "collude with the leaders of the IS, who surrender the areas under their control and head to provinces where Syrian government forces operate".

"There is an impression that under the slogan of fighting international terrorism in Syria the Americans are using IS to offer resistance to government forces' advances," he said at a briefing.

Surovikin said Russian forces had struck several IS convoys as they were leaving Raqqa.

Russian warplanes struck an ISIL convoy heading toward Palmyra on May 25 and another on May 30, killing 80 militants and destroying many of their vehicles, he said.

Surovikin also criticized the US for trying to block Syrian government forces from taking control of the country's Southern border.

He said that Syrian government troops had secured territorial gains in the southern Sweida province near the Jordanian border, but encountered resistance from the US-led coalition.

The US has dealt the Syrian government and its allied troops several blows near Tanf close to the border with Jordan, where the US trains opposition forces.

Surovikin dismissed the US argument that Syrian government forces there posed a threat to the training camp as "absurd" and criticized Washington's action as a violation of Syria's sovereign right to protect its border.

米国同盟軍がラッカ南部でシリア軍戦闘機を撃墜

US-led coalition downs Syrian army plane in southern Raqqa

The US-led coalition has downed a government warplane in southern Syria, the Syrian army and coalition have announced in separate statements. The Syrian military added that the plane’s pilot is now missing.

According to the Syrian statement, the plane was carrying out operations against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the countryside around Raqqa when it was targeted, leading to a crash and the loss of the pilot, who is currently missing.

“This attack comes at a time when the Syrian Arab army and its allies are advancing in the fight against ISIS terrorists who are being defeated in the Syrian desert in more ways than one,” the statement read.

The statement added that although such attacks seek to undermine the Syrian armed forces’ struggle against terrorism, they will not be deterred in fighting for stability and security in the Syrian Arab Republic.

The downing of the Syrian warplane, an Su-22, was confirmed by an official press statement from Operation Inherent Resolve, the US-led international task force against IS, which accused the Syrian government of targeting fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led militia.

“At 6:43pm, a Syrian regime SU-22 dropped bombs near SDF fighters south of Tabqah and, in accordance with rules of engagement and collective self-defense of Coalition partnered forces, was immediately shot down by a US F/A-18E Super Hornet,” the statement read.

The statement added that its mission is to defeat ISIS in Iraq and Syria and that the Coalition does not seek to “fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend Coalition or partner forces from any threat.”

This is not the first time that the US-led intervention in Syria has led to standoffs and violence against pro-government forces. In September 2016, a coalition airstrike on Deir ez-Zor killed over 60 Syrian soldiers while in April 2017, US President Donald Trump ordered a Tomahawk missile strike on the Shayrat airbase, ostensibly in retaliation for the use of chemical weapons by the Syria government, though no concrete evidence of this has emerged.

Earlier in June, the US deployed several High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS) in southern Syria, close to the border with Jordan. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the presence of the rocket launchers cannot be justified by a need to fight Islamic State terrorists, as IS forces are not active in the area. Instead, their presence threatens the cooperation between the Syrian government and their partners in Iraq.

US downs Syrian fighter jet engaged in anti-Daesh operations
A Syrian fighter plane engaged in operations against Daesh in Raqqah has been downed by the US-led coalition.

The plane crashed and the pilot’s whereabouts were still unknown, the Syrian army said in a Sunday statement.

The Syrian army’s general command stressed that the “flagrant aggression” highlights the US’s true stance against terrorism.

“The attack stresses coordination between the US and Daesh, and it reveals the evil intentions of the US in administrating terrorism and investing it to pass the US-Zionist project in the region,” it added. "This comes at a time when the Syrian army and its allies were making clear advances in fighting the Daesh terrorist group."

US army confirms downing Syrian jet

Following Syria’s announcement, the US military released a statement claiming that it had shot down the Syrian fighter plane "in collective self-defense of coalition-partnered forces" in Syria’s Tabqa.

"The Coalition does not seek to fight Syrian regime, Russian, or pro-regime forces partnered with them, but will not hesitate to defend coalition or partner forces from any threat," it said.

"The demonstrated hostile intent and actions of pro-regime forces toward Coalition and partner forces in Syria conducting legitimate counter-Daesh operations will not be tolerated," it added.

Earlier, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that clashes had erupted between Syrian government troops and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in two villages located some 40 kilometers to the south of Raqqah.

Different foreign-backed terrorist groups have been wreaking havoc in Syria since 2011. Over the past few months, Syrian forces have made sweeping gains against Takfiri elements, who have lately increased their acts of violence across the country following a series of defeats on the ground.

Daesh seized Raqqah in 2014, the same year when it started its campaign of terror in Syria. It then proceeded to capture large swathes of Syrian territory.

Earlier in the month, the SDF announced that it has entered the western regions of Daesh’s last stronghold in Syria, Raqqah.

アルファ線源の多いところで人がフツーに長年暮すとどうなるか

2017/6/18の現地調査結果については、松戸市高塚十字路付近 α、β、γ計149cpmにポイントを書きましたが、実際にはほとんど100mおきに測定しています。

天候の都合で高塚十字路より北東部にあるより濃厚な汚染地帯には入りませんでしたが、いわば入り口に当たるこの十字路に近いところでは、すでに頻繁に警告音が鳴りました。警告音は0.4μSv/hを越えると鳴るようにセットしています。134cpmです。



管理人はまだごく狭い範囲しか測っていませんが、他県、例えば福島県ではどんな状況なのでしょう。

福島県北部での2014/8の測定結果を得ることができました。MAZURの同じ機種を使用しています。
道路脇裸地
α+β+γ計972cpm、β+γ計845cpm、α127cpm
マンホール蓋上
α+β+γ計86cpm、β+γ計75cpm、α11cpm
天然石の上部
α+β+γ計158cpm、β+γ計108cpm、α50cpm

マンホールの蓋上は関東の濃厚汚染地帯と比べて少し高いでしょうか。注目されるのは、上の三つの測定例でアルファ線量割合が高くなっています。道路脇裸地とマンホール蓋上でα+β+γ計の約13%。天然石の上部では約32%です。

上に引用した記事の測定箇所Aのアルファ線量の割合は約11%ですから13%は少し高く、天然石の上部の32%は突出しています。この天然石が固有の放射能を持っていたとしても高すぎます。

(管理人の現地調査結果で測定箇所Cは、レンガの上です。α+βの割合が高くなっていますが、これはウランレンガの可能性もあります。)

上の福島県の測定例は、2011/3/20のプルームによりアルファ線源、ベータ線源が相対的に多く降下したと見られている地域に属します。マンホールの蓋のような雨水が流出するところではそれほど高くありませんが、道路脇裸地ではα、β、γともに異様な高さになっています。福島第一原発事故から3年余経過した後の時点です。

関東のセシウム濃厚汚染地帯では、福島県下とあまり変わらないアルファ線源、ベータ線源汚染の地域があることが分かります。

福島県の上の測定例の地域に住む方が、放射性物質汚染をどれほど意識して生活しておられるかは分かりません。確かなのは、関東の濃厚汚染地帯に住む人は、多くがアルファ線源、ベータ線源汚染をほとんど意識せずに暮していることです。

管理人の測定例のような状況が東葛などの濃厚汚染地帯では一般的だとしたら、そのような地域に200万人、300万人にも上る人口が暮すわけで、統計を取る母集団の数としては十分な規模になります。

その健康状態の変化を捉えることができれば、これまで人類がまず経験したことのない被曝環境で暮し続けたらどんな影響が出るのか、が明らかになる、少なくともその一助にはなります。

このような環境に長年暮したらどんな影響が出るかは、率直に言って分かりません。言えるのは、がんの発生率が上がるだろうということですが、どのくらいの期間の経過でどんながんがどのくらいの割合にまで増えるのかはまったく分かりません。

そして、がん以外の疾病がいつ頃どれくらい増えるのかも、まったく分かりません。

それを推定するに資する情報は、セルビアやイラクでの疾患や奇形児発生の状況ですが、イラクはISISとの戦いでそのような情報は整備できていないでしょうし、セルビアもまだ確たるデータは示されていないようです。
