ISIL Attacks Syrian Army Positions in Southern Damascus after US-Led Missile Strikes
TEHRAN (FNA)- The ISIL terrorists, emboldened by the US-led airstrikes against the Syrian army positions on Saturday morning, attacked the military bases of the army in Southern Damascus.

Field sources reported on Saturday that the ISIL terrorists attacked the army positions West of al-Qadam district in Southern Damascus.

They noted that the offensive was launched immediately after the US-led coalition's missile strikes against the Syrian army positions, adding that the Syrian army units repulsed the terrorists' attack after clashes.

The Syrian army has sent a large number of forces and military equipment to Southern Damascus to launch imminent operations in the region to purge the ISIL terrorists from occupied areas.

US, British and French forces launched over 100 missiles on Syria early Saturday morning, and Russia says Damascus has managed to dodge 71.

In a televised address to the nation, US President Donald Trump said the three nations partnered in the missile launch.

The strikes were the biggest overt attack by the three Western powers against Syria in the country's seven-year-old civil war, which has pitted the US and its allies against Russia.

Other NATO members refrained from partnership in the attack, although NATO secretary general voiced his support for the move.

Israel was also absent from today's strike, fearing Iran's response. After a recent missile strike on Syria's T4 base that killed 12, including 7 Iranian military advisors, Tel Aviv has been on guard in anticipation of Iran's tough reprisal.

Reports coming out of a national security meeting in the White House two days ago said Defense Secretary James Mattis opposed striking targets that would provoke Tehran and Moscow's response, urging Trump and National Security Advisor John Bolton to think wisely and narrow down the scope of the attack.

The Pentagon claimed the strikes targeted a research center in greater Damascus and a chemical weapons storage facility and a command post west of Homs, while the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has officially stated complete disarmament of Syria since two years ago.

The missile strikes took place as a team of OPCW is in Damascus to probe the alleged chemical incident in Douma last week, but the trio western allies didn't wait for the result of their work for somehow unknown reasons.

The Iranian foreign ministry in a statement on Saturday morning strongly condemned the attack, warning that the aggression would entail dire repercussions in the region and beyond.

Deputy Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Yadollah Javani also warned the US to "wait for the repercussions of its attack on Syria", saying that the Saturday offensive "gave the Resistance Front a more open hand for showing reaction to such moves by the US and its allies".

Russia's Ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said in a statement that Russia had warned that "such actions will not be left without consequences".

Syrian state TV said Syrian air defenses shot down 15 missiles on Saturday morning. Syria's state run news agency said the missiles fired at Homs were intercepted or deviated from the targets and wounded three.

But the Russian Defense Ministry declared in a statement later on Saturday that the Syrian air defense units have intercepted 71 of the 103 missiles fired at the country.

US acting as ‘ISIS air force’ in Syria, spreads ‘conscious, transparent lie’ – analysts to RT
The massive missile strikes the US and allies conducted against Syria actually benefit terrorist groups, and prevented inspectors from proving if chemical weapons were used in Douma, international analysts told RT.

Washington, London, and Paris used last week’s alleged chemical attack in Douma, near Damascus, as the pretext for an early morning missile attack on civilian and military targets in Syria.

The air invasion came just hours before a group of inspectors dispatched by the UN’s Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was scheduled to visit Douma in order to find out if any chemical weapons were used there. This made the timing even more suspicious, experts say.

To Jim Jatras, a former US foreign service officer, “preventing a real investigation in Douma was one of the reasons for [the strike].”

“So, the big hurry here is, in my opinion, is that you’ve got [OPCW] inspectors on the ground in Damascus now, ready to go now and confirm… there wasn’t any attack.”

He called the alleged chemical incident in Douma “a false flag” operation, saying he expected US President Donald Trump to respond almost immediately in the way he acted last year after the alleged gas attack in Khan Sheikhoun. He said that “if you’re Al-Qaeda or its offshoot [in Syria], you’re going to be very happy tonight.” The problem with false flag operations “is that they work, especially when you have compliant media,” he stated.

“I don’t think that Syria has chemical weapons. I think that the Russian effort to get them out of there after what happened in Ghouta in 2013 was genuine and was certified as genuine by the OPCW.” Commenting on the justification for the strikes, he said “it’s a conscious transparent lie.”

The US is “acting as air force of all these jihadist terrorist [groups] – Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Jaysh al-Islam and Ahrar al-Sham, and it’s really morally reprehensible,” Jatras said.

Richard Becker of the US-based anti-war ANSWER Coalition told RT he believes Britain and France are becoming “old colonizers of the Middle East back again, and the United States is more of a new colonizer.” He accused Washington of issuing “falsification after falsification” and fanning “war propaganda” to influence the American people when “it doesn’t want to go to war.”

Meanwhile, he said, radical terrorist groups fighting the Syrian government have “the material interest in having this happen.” What is happening at this stage in the Middle East “is the continuation of what we saw in Yugoslavia where we had a re-Balkanization of the Balkans,” adding that “now we’re seeing the Balkanization of Iraq.”
