ロシア、シリア 関係各種情報収録

【ワシントン共同】米国のヘイリー国連大使は15日、米メディアのインタビューで、シリアのアサド政権による化学兵器使用を阻止しなかった責任があるとして、後ろ盾のロシアに対する米独自の制裁を16日に発表する方針を明らかにした。対象には、アサド政権に関係したり化学兵器に関連したりする装備を取引するロシア企業が含まれる見通し。
 トランプ政権は制裁発動によってロシアへの圧力を強める方針。だが、ロシア側はアサド政権が化学兵器を使ったという米英仏の主張を「でっち上げだ」と反発しており、米ロ間の対立が一層先鋭化するのは必至だ。

Lebanese Media: Damascus Rejects US Proposal for Talks
TEHRAN (FNA)- Washington has demanded Damascus to sit to the negotiating table for the fourth time but the latter has dismissed the proposal, a Lebanese paper reported.

The Arabic-language al-Akhbar newspaper quoted an informed source privy to US-Syria talks as claiming on Monday that three meetings were held last year between the two sides upon a direct demand from the US.

The source added that the US administration, through different channels, had also last month called for holding the fourth round of such talks but Damascus firmly opposed it.

"Talks with the US is waste of time and we will not hold talks with them until they review their policies," the source quoted the Syrian government as saying.

Arab Media: Popular Forces Lay Siege on US Military Base in Northwestern Baghdad to Prevent Attacks on Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Iraqi popular forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) have encircled a US military base in al-Zahra region in Northwestern Baghdad and warned the American commanders to avoid using the base for any future airstrikes on Syria, Lebanese media outlet claimed on Monday.

The Arabic-language al-Diyar newspaper claimed that the Iraqi popular forces, equipped with tanks, ground-to-ground missiles and anti-aircraft weapons have surrounded the al-Zahra military base.

No official source has yet confirmed the report.

Al-Zahra is home to an important US base in Iraq, and the Lebanese paper said that one of the popular forces' commanders has warned the US commander in charge of the base that his military center would come under attack if used for flying fighter jets to attack Syria.

The paper further said that the US general has rushed to contact the Iraqi government to send army forces to break the siege.

Al-Diyar says the airbase in al-Zahra has been smartly chosen by the Iraqi popular forces to pressure the US as its control has been delivered to the Pentagon without the approval of the Iraqi parliament.

The paper underlined that the Iraqi popular forces' threats to attack the American occupiers has stirred concerns in the US.

Relevant reports in February said that Washington has heightened security at its military bases across Iraq because of what an official claimed to be concerns about threats by Hashd al-Shaabi against the US continued deployment in the Arab country.

"The US army has intensified security measures around its bases in Iraq and prevents presence of forces affiliated to Hashd al-Shaabi in a radius of, at least, 20km," Iraqi officials were quoted as saying by the Arabic-language al-Arabi al-Jadid newspaper.

The officials added that the responsibility to protect the US bases, including Ain al-Assad in al-Anbar province and Balad in Salahuddin province, has been rendered to the Iraqi army and police forces as well as the US forces themselves.

An official at the Secretariat of the Iraqi Government was quoted by the daily as saying that the US army has taken the threats by Hashd al-Shaabi against the presence of its forces in Iraq much seriously.

The report came after spokesman and a senior commander of Iraq's Kata'ib Hezbollah (Hezbollah Battalions) popular forces Jafar al-Hosseini warned that the chances are more than ever that clashes break out between them and the US military men deployed in the Arab country.

"Clashes may break out with the Americans at any time, and this time no mediation will help the Americans and it is not like the past," al-Hosseini was quoted by the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel as saying in February.

He described the US military deployment as occupation of Iraq, and said, "It was the Americans who brought the ISIL to Iraq to have a pretext to return."

Al-Hosseini said that the weapons and equipment seized from the ISIL terrorists in the town of Tikrit in Iraq were the ones used merely by the American forces.

Russia, US Backed Fighters Preparing for Colossal Showdown in Eastern Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- The US and Russian backed forces in Syria are preparing for a major battle for the strategic oilfields in the Eastern countryside of Deir Ezzur, a military source said.

The Syrian Army troops and their allies have been amassing their forces along the Western bank of the Euphrates River for nearly two weeks now, massdar quoted the source.

The source added that the government forces are planning on crossing the bridge that was recently constructed by the Russian military near the key town of Khasham in Eastern Deir Ezzur.

If the Syrian military does in fact cross the bridge, they will be within the striking distance of the Al-Umar Oilfields.

The region hosts Deir Ezzur’s largest oilfields, making its capture all the more important for the Syrian government.

However, the US-backed forces are not likely to give it up without a fight, despite the fact they are greatly outnumbered by the Syrian military.

While Russia and the US will provide their respective sides with military support, it will be the latter that might have to militarily intervene.

The US Coalition has bombed the Syrian military before and given their latest attack, they may choose to do so again.

Western journalists now on the ground in Douma can find no evidence or witnesses of chemical attack. Senior British military figures already cast doubt on chemical attack claims. Doctors seen in video say it was staged. Updated links:

Moscow slams western media ‘disinformation campaign’ about OPCW experts being denied entry to Douma
Western media are waging an “unscrupulous disinformation campaign” by claiming Moscow and Damascus are “blocking” OPCW inspectors from accessing the site of an alleged chemical attack in Douma, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

“It was Russia that supported the request of the Syrian government to the Director General of the Technical Secretariat of the [Organization for the Prohibition of the Chemical Weapons] to send … experts to Douma,” the ministry’s spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova said, dismissing the media allegations.

“We will not indulge the authors of these fake reports,” Zakharova added, explaining that the Russian side “does its part of the work in a very responsible, professional and reliable manner.” She stressed that it is Russia and Syria that bear the responsibility for the security of the OPCW experts.

Those who still want to accuse the Syrian and Russian authorities of neglecting their duties, by “blocking” the experts from accessing the site of the alleged chemical attack, apparently are willing to risk the OPCW investigators’ lives to promote their “dirty fake news,” Zakharova said.

It was after the strikes launched by the US, the UK and France against Syria, when the most radical militant groups renewed active hostilities against the Syrian Army in the Douma region.

The coalition attack also forced the Syrian authorities and the Russian military to change route plans and once again negotiate with some local groups in Douma to facilitate the safe access of the OPCW investigators to the site of the alleged chemical attack.

Earlier, Moscow said that the strikes were aimed at thwarting the UN chemical watchdog’s investigation. Washington and its allies launched a massive missile strike against Syria on the same day that the team of OPCW experts was expected to arrive in Syria.

On Monday, an array of western mainstream media came out with strikingly similar headlines as they all accused Moscow of “blocking” the OPCW experts from entering Douma. CNN, the Guardian and the New York Times all said that the OPCW experts were either “blocked” or “barred” from the alleged chemical attack site. CBS News came out with a headline reading: “Russia accused of blocking access to alleged chemical attack site” while the Sun wrote that “US accuses Russia of tampering with Syrian poison gas site and [of] blocking inspectors” altogether.
