The first true test of the Kerry/Lavrov deal is this Turkish humanitarian aid convoy of 33 trucks driving now straight for eastern Aleppo....will it be bombed by the Russians which they have previously done to all previous Turkish aid convoys OR will it pass through to Aleppo OR will it be shelled by Assad regime troops....???

Reports now of first convoy of aid trucks crossing #Turkey border into #Syria following start of #Syriaceasefire on Monday evening

Q: What happens if Assad bombs civilians?

@Statedeptspox: goal is to prevent it

Q: But what if? Shoot down?

Spox: Won't ans hypothetical

Reference the Kerry/Lavrov Eid "deal"....there are clear indications as stated by Kerry that there are at least 4 possibly 5 side agreements that they will not release for public viewing nor do the Syrian opposition even know about them...NOR has the US and or Russia answered the info requests of the HNC and armed group.....telling actually....

The State Dept - just the State Dept - changed its guidance 3 times in the course of 90 minutes.

Kerry's comments & @StateDept correction means Assad can bomb Nusra outside agreed safe zone as part of new CF (without US OK)

Spokesperson:
You're asking technical q's about a confidential deal that everyone seems to be saying something different about

SO exactly just what is Kerry trying to cover up and what has he committed the US to and has he "sold out"....the Syrian opposition after five years of rebellion????

Just maybe.......

The State Department clarification yesterday said the U.S. aim was to stop #Assad bombing areas containing the opposition or #JFS.

Kyle W. Orton ‏@KyleWOrton
So either #Assad:
- can bomb JFS outside JIC-designated areas
- can bomb JFS in coordination w/ JIC
- cannot bomb JFS at all
Important which

This letter was sent from #US to #Syria armed groups shows #Kerry approving regime's air strikes IS CORRECT

BTW I am now calling this the Kerry/Lavrov ceasefire chaos plan because;
1. we have had four different DoS statements as to what Kerry said and or did not say about the US supporting Assad airstrikes
2. humanitarian aid which was to immediately start if the chaos plan held...has not started and is as usual being blocked by Assad as he needs to starve the Sunni's into submission
3. airstrikes have been largely replaced by Assad artillery strikes AND nothing is being said
4. apparently we now have Russian sanctions being pulled by the Obama/Rhodes/Kerry WH as a "bribe payment" to Russia....BUT WAIT we have had over 33.3B USDs in cash and gold already paid to Iran as a "bribe" as part of the Iran Deal which also had "secret agreements"......

5. AND worst of all we have five separate agreements that have been deemed "secret" and no one knows what they are...smacks of the "Iran Deal"....

AND...... simply put Assad is back to barrel bombing and air strikes hours into the so called Kerry/Lavrov chaos plan....AN open, clear and concise violation of the chaos plan.

MAYBE both Kerry and Lavrov need to urgently use Google and read what is defined for the word "ceasefire".....

1. An order to stop firing.
2. Suspension of active hostilities, cessation of hostilities; a truce

In Kerry's comments at the Geneva press conference he started that the ceasefire means not a single bomb or artillery shell being fired....AT that is what he implied it meant.....

BUT if one reads their chaos ceasefire plan there really is no definition of what is really considered to be a successful ceasefire......

WHAT we are now getting from their comments in MSM is ..."the ceasefire is largely holding".....

EXACTLY what we have heard every single day of Minsk 2 and the UAF is being killed and wounded by daily aggressive Russian shelling's and ground attacks......BUT "the ceasefire is largely holding there to"......

With such high casualties, rising number in attacks & use of heavy artillery we can certainly say ceasefire is dead.

Syria's government said on Tuesday it will reject any aid deliveries to Aleppo that are not coordinated through itself and the United Nations, particularly aid from Turkey, state media reported.
"The Syrian Arab Republic announces its rejection of humanitarian aid entering Aleppo which is not coordinated through the Syrian government and the United Nations, in particular from the Turkish regime," state news agency SANA said, citing a foreign ministry official.

Ah.......the truth always wins out...finally US MSM is thoroughly understanding the slight of hand trick the Obama/Rhodes/Kerry WH pulled with their latest Kerry/Lavrov ceasefire chaos plan......

The #US-#Russia deal on #Syria is a face saving manoeuvre for #Obama and #Kerry, nothing else.
http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/09/14/


WASHINGTON — The agreement that Secretary of State John Kerry announced with Russia to reduce the killing in Syria has widened an increasingly public divide between Mr. Kerry and Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter, who has deep reservations about the plan for American and Russian forces to jointly target terrorist groups.
Mr. Carter was among the administration officials who pushed against the agreement on a conference call with the White House last week as Mr. Kerry, joining the argument from a secure facility in Geneva, grew increasingly frustrated. Although President Obama ultimately approved the effort after hours of debate, Pentagon officials remain unconvinced.
On Tuesday at the Pentagon, officials would not even agree that if a cessation of violence in Syria held for seven days — the initial part of the deal — the Defense Department would put in place its part of the agreement on the eighth day: an extraordinary collaboration between the United States and Russia that calls for the American military to share information with Moscow on Islamic State targets in Syria.

“I’m not saying yes or no,” Lt. Gen. Jeffrey L. Harrigian, commander of the United States Air Forces Central Command, told reporters on a video conference call. “It would be premature to say that we’re going to jump right into it.”
White House officials were also dubious. “I think we’d have some reasons to be skeptical that the Russians are able or are willing to implement the arrangement consistent with the way it’s been described,” Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, said Monday at a briefing. He added, darkly, “But we’ll see.”

In Mr. Kerry’s view, the administration has needed to do everything it can to restrain the forces of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria from continuing to bomb civilians. Once the Russians entered the war, that meant making the deal with President Vladimir V. Putin — one in which the Russians would pressure Mr. Assad to stay out of the skies.

For Mr. Kerry, the search for a reduction in violence in Syria, and ultimately a political agreement that will ease Mr. Assad out of office, is a matter of legacy and reputation. His first major project as secretary of state, reviving Middle East peace talks, collapsed before his first year in office was complete. His next major effort, the Iran nuclear deal, was far more successful, and he ultimately found a way to persuade the Iranians to ship most of their nuclear material out of the country and dismantle key facilities.

Video Idlib Province in Syria was hit by deadly airstrikes ahead of the Eid al-Adha holiday, which began on Monday, the same day as a cease-fire. An area resident, Muhammed Najdat Kaddour, filmed the scene.

But the Syria deal, as Mr. Kerry himself conceded at the State Department on Monday, is far more complex, in part because there are so many other players, beyond Washington and Moscow, with stakes in the outcome. In private, he has conceded to aides and friends that he believes it will not work. But he has said he is determined to try, so that he and Mr. Obama do not leave office having failed to alleviate a civil war that has taken roughly half a million lives.

The first full day of the cease-fire passed on Tuesday with no notable violations, but an atmosphere of deep mistrust prevailed in Syria’s war-ravaged areas, residents and monitoring groups reported. The skepticism was fed partly by what appeared to be delays in expediting United Nations aid deliveries to the northern city of Aleppo and other combat zones where civilians have long been deprived of food and medicine. Relief for these areas is an important component of the cease-fire agreement.

The United Nations mediator in the conflict, Staffan de Mistura, told reporters in Geneva that there had been a “significant drop in violence” since the cease-fire plan took effect at sundown on Monday. But he said United Nations relief trucks bound for Aleppo, lined up at southern Turkey’s border with Syria, had not received assurances of safe travel. Mr. de Mistura also said the Syrian government had still not provided required authorizations for deliveries to other locations, “but we are eagerly hoping and expecting the government to issue them very soon.”

The divide between Mr. Kerry and Mr. Carter reflects the inherent conflict in Mr. Obama’s Syria policy. The president has come under increased fire politically for his refusal to intervene more forcefully in the five-year civil war, which the United Nations says has killed more than 400,000 people, displaced more than six million and led to a refugee crisis in Europe. But keeping large numbers of American ground forces out of Syria has also created space for Russia to assume a greater role there, both on the battlefield and at the negotiating table.

The result is that at a time when the United States and Russia are at their most combative posture since the end of the Cold War, the American military is suddenly being told that it may, in a week, have to start sharing intelligence with one of its biggest adversaries to jointly target Islamic State and Nusra Front forces in Syria.

“I remain skeptical about anything to do with the Russians,” Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, who recently stepped down as NATO’s supreme allied commander, said Monday in an interview. “There are a lot of concerns about putting out there where our folks are.”
In an email, Peter Cook, the Pentagon press secretary, said: “As Secretary Carter has said, Secretary Kerry has worked tirelessly to try and ease the suffering of the Syrian people and bring about a diplomatic resolution to the Syrian civil war. If fully implemented, this arrangement could advance those important goals.

The Defense Department, he added, “will carry out its responsibilities, but it’s really up to Russia and the regime to comply with the terms and finally start doing the right thing in Syria.”

SOUNDS like the Kerry/Lavrov ceasefire chaos plan is really really working well.......

1. massive Russian and Assad air strikes three hours into the ceasefire with a large loss of civilian lives
2. continued Assad barrel bombing and air strikes today ALONG with heavy artillery shelling's
3. AND absolutely not a single aid convoy from ANYONE being allowed by Assad to be delivered.....

AND this is DAY TWO going into DAY THREE of a SEVEN DAY ceasefire...

NOW that sounds like the beginnings of a highly successful ceasefire to me.......????

SO was this the reason for that sudden "Rose Garden walk" then backing down from his own "red line"...

THERE is also some talk that the Iranians also threatened Obama if he attacked Assad right up to the signing of the agreement and it goes IMHO to the comments in the Obama 20,000 word interview "that Syria is in the Iranian sphere of influence" WHICH is strange when one knows that 78% of the Syrian population is Sunni.......

Nuance - #Syria’s opposition has *not* rejected the US-#Russia deal altogether.

- The CoH (+ aid) is accepted
- JFS targeting is rejected

It’s certainly hedging at its purest - covering all poss bases.

Private responses also differ to public statements.

Bear in mind, opposition factions don’t expect JIC phase of the deal to succeed, hence why we’ve not seen an explicit rejection [yet].

For JFS, all that matters is the JIC phase - hence their public messaging of the opposition having totally rejected the deal in full.

The ceasefire the US and Russia brokered in Syria is 'an Assad regime victory in disguise'
http://read.bi/2c8MtjM


The Syrian ceasefire brokered by the US and Russia has temporarily put a stop to fighting in some parts of the war-torn country, but it could have unintended consequences that end up working in favor of the leader that US-backed rebels are trying to oust.
The ceasefire which went into effect on Monday will, in theory, allow humanitarian aid to get through to besieged areas like Aleppo, a Syrian city where civilians have lived with daily bombardments and a dire lack of food and medical supplies. The ceasefire is also meant to facilitate joint efforts between the US and Russia to target terrorists in Syria.

But, the week-long truce has raised red flags for local actors who 'see it as an Assad regime victory in disguise,' according to a report published this week by The Soufan Group, a strategic security firm.

The concerns are derived from skepticism about Russia’s true aim in the region. The country inserted itself into the Syrian civil war last year under the pretense of fighting terrorists, but Russian President Vladimir Putin seems to be more focused on bolstering the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, a longtime ally.

For instance, the last time a ceasefire was put into place, Russia and the Syrian regime used it to regroup and eventually target moderate rebels who oppose Assad, senior Pentagon officials recently told Foreign Policy. Some anti-Assad rebel groups receive support from the US.
Fred Hof, a former special adviser for transition in Syria under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, told Business Insider in an email that while it's "too early to tell who the winners and losers are" in the ceasefire, it could end up benefitting Assad at the expense of other interests.

"The agreement would be an unadulterated triumph for the Assad regime if the result is one ultimately reflecting the Russian-American neutralization of the anti-Assad Nusra Front, but with no corresponding strengthening of the non-extremist Syrian armed opposition," said Hof, who is now the director of the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East at the Atlantic Council.

Basically, if the moderate rebels fighting to oust Assad don't benefit enough from the ceasefire, then the Syrian regime, which is no friend to the US or to the Syrian people, will be the clear winner of the deal.

There are many players on the Syrian battlefield, and rebels encompass extremist elements — like ISIS and the Al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, which recently rebranded as Jabhat Fateh al-Sham — as well as moderate groups that want to oust Assad but don't share the Islamist goals of the extremist groups.

US officials have called on Assad to step down, but the military has so far declined to get involved directly in removing him from power, leaving that job for the moderate rebels that have received US support.

And once the extremist groups are gone, Assad is likely to focus on destroying whatever moderate elements of the opposition are left.
"[The] ceasefire will benefit the Syrian government if it is able to concentrate forces and attack against the former Nusra Front (now Fateh al-Sham), seizing strategic positions from it and setting itself up later to pivot against more moderate elements of the armed opposition," Robert Ford, a senior fellow with the Middle East Institute and US ambassador to Syria between 2010 and 2014, told Business Insider in an email.
What is further complicating the situation is the fact that moderate rebels have become increasingly enmeshed with Islamist groups, namely Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, which is not a party in the ceasefire. Because the Islamist groups tend to have more arms and money than other rebel groups, partnering with them on the battlefield became a matter of survival for the moderate rebels.

As of right now, the moderate rebels would have to trust the US and Russia if they were to separate completely from Jabhat Fateh al-Sham.
"Separating from Nusra is something the non-extremist opposition would like to do, but under current conditions it would not be easy," Hof said. "But if it somehow happens and Nusra is subsequently neutralized, what would stop Assad and his allies from pouncing on the non-extremist armed Syrian opposition?"

To earn the trust of the Syrian opposition, the Americans would have to persuade Russia that if the Assad continues to massacre civilians, the US would take action. "Nothing good will happen in Syria until civilians come off the bullseye," Hof said. "But the country's worst actors — the Assad regime, Russia, Iran and ISIS — have used mass murder and terror to great advantage thus far."

And Russia isn't exactly a reliable partner in Syria.
"The Russians have consistently shielded the Syrian government from the repercussions of its renewed use of chemical weapons, war crimes such as indiscriminate bombing of civilian areas and blocking humanitarian aid access," Ford said. "They have repeatedly lied to try to absolve the Syrian government if its crimes."

Therefore, Russia isn't likely to help serve the ultimate interests of the Syrian people, which is deposing the despot whose regime has killed more Syrians than any terrorist group.

"The Americans should be very wary of any thought that the possibility of new US-Russian military coordination in Syria will lead to any change in Russian goals or behavior," Ford said. "There is certainly no sign that Russia is prepared to push really hard on the Syrian government to make some big compromises at a political negotiation the Obama administration hopes might solve the Syrian crisis."
Even US officials admit that Russia might be less than trustworthy in this deal.

"I think we'd have some reasons to be skeptical that the Russians are able or are willing to implement the arrangement consistent with the way it's been described," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said during a Monday briefing. "But we'll see."#

Reports: BUT not confirmed as the FSA has seen no moves by Assad and Putin to start delivery of humanitarian aid and by pulling back and then no aid arriving it would give Assad forces greater Aleppo territorial gains...meaning they pulled back from hard fought gains and then nothing arrived except more Assad mercenary forces moving into their former positions.....

Assad regime & FSA forces will begin withdrawing personnel & weaponry from Castello Rd area, from tomorrow.

This Reuters report confirms today the non movement....highly suspect that the anti Assad opposition NOW fully feels that absolutely no humanitarian aid will flow as Kerry/Lavrov CLEARLY indicated it would is the ceasefire largely held....WELL it has "larely held " and Assad is fully blocking the UN and the Red Crescent from delivering aid to Aleppo and other besieged areas.

Rebels now firmly believe Assad and the Russians are simply using the ceasefire to reposition and rearm for another round of heavy major attacks...


Syrian government forces and rebels had yet to withdraw from a road to be used to deliver aid to Aleppo on Thursday morning, a war monitor and a senior rebel official said, a step that must happen for the delivery to take place under a U.S.-Russian deal.
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Director Rami Abdulrahman said each side wanted the withdrawal from the Castello Road to happen simultaneously. The Britain-based Observatory follows the war using a network of contacts in Syria.
Russia said on Wednesday it was preparing for the Syrian army and rebel fighters to begin a staged withdrawal from the road.
"The regime is ready ... to withdraw but will not move unless the opposition begins to withdraw," Abdulrahman said.
A senior Syrian rebel official in Aleppo said a withdrawal by rebel factions was under debate "because the agreement stipulates that the regime must respect the truce but that did not happen."
"Even yesterday it targeted the area surrounding the Castello," the official told Reuters.
There was no comment from state media or the army about the proposed withdrawal. A Syrian military source said on Wednesday that armed groups had violated the ceasefire 15 times in the Aleppo area in a 24-hour period.

NOTICE Russia and the US say absolutely not a single word ABOUT the total lack of the flow of humanitarian aid.....telling......

So if this article is anywhere close to be accurate then SF does have some serious "new issues" especially if one SF soldier refers to the FSA Southern Front as JaN (AQ) now rebranded as JFS.

If SF soldiers do not fully and inherently understand the mission set and the ground players and have no earthly idea of the NCA strategic strategy when WHY not stand up and simply their own command what the hell is ongoing?

US Special Forces sabotage White House policy gone disastrously wrong with covert ops in Syria
By Jack Murphy 09.14.2016


“Nobody believes in it. You’re like, ‘#### this,’” a former Green Beret says of America’s covert and clandestine programs to train and arm Syrian militias. “Everyone on the ground knows they are jihadis. No one on the ground believes in this mission or this effort, and they#know they#are just training the next generation of jihadis, so they are sabotaging it by saying, ‘#### it, who cares?’”
“I don’t want to be responsible for Nusra guys saying they were trained by Americans,” the Green Beret added. A second Special Forces soldier commented that one Syrian militia they had trained recently crossed the border from Jordan on what had been pitched as a large-scale shaping operation that#would change the course of the war. Watching the battle on a monitor while a drone flew overhead, “We literally watched them, with 30 guys in their force, run away from three or four ISIS guys.”


Something is very wrong inside SF if this is an accurate picture and report....

This does not include the CENTCOM support via SF for the YPG...just a fig leaf for the US named terrorist group PKK....

For those SWJ readers who honestly think Assad and Putin and Kerry will hold to this latest so called ceasefire......

From another war front where Russia unilaterally declared also a SEVEN day ceasefire...which really is just a new ceasefire inside an already existing three ceasefires INSIDE the core ceasefire Minsk 2.

Yesterday the German and French FMs finally after two years visited the Minsk 2 frontlines and saw the destruction for the first time BUT stated this ceasefire has to be extended in order to achieve a lasting peace....

WELL a full 24 hours later into this so called new ceasefire we get this......

ATO HQ reports 30 pro Russian attacks yesterday. A high number for a ceasefire. 30 attacks,incl. mortars&RPGs.


BUT WAIT........
Seems #Steinmeier was misinformed,claiming in @heutejournal the ceasefire in E #Ukraine was "widely holding". Attacks down from 50 to 30 does not make a true "largely holding ceasefire...just a reduction in attacks...BUT not a ceasefire

NOTICE anything?? Even in Syria where there is an average of over 20-30 a day
NOTICE anything?????

Even in Syria in a Russian so called ceasefire we are averaging in DAY FOUR an average of 20-30 Assad/Russian attacks.....

AND there both Lavrov and Kerry state....."the ceasefire is largely holding"....A true ceasefire means exactly what the English word states....no fire whatsoever by any side....

Obama gathers advisers amid unease over Syria deal

Laurent Barthelemy, Andrew Beatty•September 16, 2016



Washington (AFP) - US President Barack Obama will huddle with top national security aides -- including his secretaries of state and defense -- Friday, amid deep unease over a tenuous Syria ceasefire deal.
Barely a week since the United States and Russia agreed to halt bombing and let humanitarian aid into Aleppo, shaky implementation looks set to dominate a meeting ostensibly about countering the Islamic State group.
The deal has somewhat quieted the bombs over Syria's second city, but aid convoys have not been allowed to reach the roughly 250,000 civilians besieged by government forces.
Washington and Moscow are already trading blame over who is responsible.
"Right now, the trucks that could bring them lifesaving assistance are idling on the wrong side of the border," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Thursday.
"That's the direct responsibility of the Assad regime and their benefactors in Moscow."
A Russian military spokesman earlier slammed the United States for what he called "rhetorical fog" intended "to hide the fact that it is not fulfilling its part of the obligations."
Only the Syrian army is observing the ceasefire, he said, pointing the finger at US-backed rebel groups.
Since US Secretary of State John Kerry agreed the deal with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov after marathon talks in Geneva, Obama has increasingly been forced to referee disputes within his own administration about the agreement.
Some within the Pentagon have expressed deep skepticism that Russia will live up to its side of the bargain and believe Kerry is being led down an alley.
Russia, critics say, has repeatedly used talks to blunt criticism of its support of Assad, sow doubt among US allies on the ground and buy time for Syrian forces to improve their position.
But White House and State Department officials have argued any ceasefire, even if imperfect and even if fleeting, offers desperately needed respite from a brutal five-year civil war that has killed 300,000 people.
Privately they express concern that Russia may be stalling for time, but say ultimately talks are the only way the Syrian war will come to an end.
The White House has warned that deeper military cooperation with Russia -- a tacit vindication of the Kremlin's war in Syria -- will not come until Moscow fulfills its obligations.
"What really matters here is that the president of the United States supports this agreement, and our system of government works in such a way that everyone follows what the president says," said State Department spokesman Mark Toner.
While debates within the administration continue, the White House is also coming under fire from outside for refusing to make details of the agreement public.
Even allies like France have gone as far as publicly stating they want more details.
"The United States has certainly been in touch with our other allies and partners to help them understand exactly what we are trying to achieve," said Earnest.
"I think that we've been quite clear about the details in terms of what the arrangement requires on both sides."

As of now, the 7-day initial cessation of hostilities will end on 19th Sept; then the anti-#ISIS/AQ “JIG” will form.

This fits opposition strategy so far, which was to accept the ceasefire component of the deal, but [in theory] oppose strikes vs. JFS.

By July 2016:

- 1,005,257 people (UN says 590,000) were living under siege in 40+ communities (UN says 18).

NOTICE ANYTHING?????....after it has become widely known that the UN lives in a 5Star Damascus hotel, and has paid millions of USDs for Assad corruption AND has not delivered virtually any aid unless to Assad regime towns.....

IT continues to hedge the actual numbers of those besieged and the actual number of besieged towns/villages.....WHY is that???

UN is definitely not in Syria ....."neutral".......

LARGELY never mentioned by western MSM and especially the BBC reporting out of Syria by proAssad BBC reporters.....

Responsibility for besieging #Syria’s people:

88% - #Assad regime (BTW includes Hezbollah and Kurdish YPG/SDF/PKK troops)
10% - #Assad regime & #ISIS
2% - Opposition

One of the major Russian ceasefire demands that evidently Kerry had agreed to but not released was the naming of Ahrar al Sham and Jaish al-IslamI to the terrorist list.....

NOW the so called ceasefire is truly dead in the water......

Al-Mudin citing a source at the MOM: the US has added Ahrar al-Sham and Jaish al-Islam to the no-bomb friendly groups.

Russia had complained bitterly over the last few days that the US was not fulfilling all the agreements especially the naming of AAS.....

They have been silent about this demands the last 24 hours...

Ahrar al-Sharqiya also claim to have been the victim of a recent "U.S airstrike" that “targeted" their leaders in southern #Aleppo.

#Breaking Russian army says US-led coalition has killed 62 Syrian soldiers and wounded 100 in strikes
http://ara.tv/5f4xm

Saturday, 17 September 2016


More than 60 Syrian government soldiers were killed and dozens of others injured Saturday in US-led coalition air strikes on an air base in the east of the war-torn country, the Russian army said.
“Warplanes from the international anti-militant coalition carried out four air strikes today against Syrian forces surrounded by ISIS in the Deir Ezzor air base,” the army said in a statement.
“Sixty-two Syrian soldiers were killed and a hundred others were injured in these strikes.”
Meanwhile, the London-based monitoring group, the Observatory for Human Rights, said the air raids killed 30 Syrian soldiers.
Earlier, Russia’s defense ministry on Saturday said US would be blamed if truce in Syria collapses, describing Washington as not ready to force Syrian rebels under its control to implement the ceasefire.
“The United States and so-called moderate (rebel) groups under their control did not implement any of the obligations taken under the Geneva agreements,” Russian news agencies quoted Lieutenant-General Viktor Poznikhir as saying.

“If the United States does not take steps needed to fulfil its obligations under the Sept. 9 agreement, then all the responsibility for any collapse of the ceasefire in Syria would lie with the United States,” he added.
The defense ministry said there have been 199 times violations since ceasefire came into force on Monday, dubbing the situation in the conflict-torn country as worsening especially in Aleppo and Hama provinces.
It also said that Syrian town of Muaddami near the capital Damascus was ready to receive humanitarian convoy on Sunday.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also told US Secretary of State John Kerry that military officials from the United States should be fully involved in monitoring a ceasefire in Syria, Russia’s foreign ministry said on Saturday.

In a phone call with Kerry, Lavrov also proposed that documents related to the Syria ceasefire agreement should be published to avoid “any double meaning” over how the deal should be implemented, the ministry said in a statement.

Meanwhile, a senior rebel official in Aleppo warned on Saturday that the ceasefire “will not hold out as air strikes and shelling continued in some places and promised aid deliveries failed to come through.
The ceasefire is the result of an agreement between Russia, which backs Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with air power, and the United States, which supports some rebel groups, and has cooled fighting since coming into effect last Monday.
On Friday, Washington and Moscow agreed to extend the ceasefire.
“The truce, as we have warned, and we told the (US) State Department - will not hold out,” the rebel official said, pointing to the continued presence of a UN aid convoy at the Turkish border awaiting permission to travel to Aleppo.
“It is not possible for the party (Russia) that wages war against a people to strive to achieve a truce, as it is also not possible for it to be a sponsor of this agreement while it bombs night and day, while on the other side, the other party - America - has the role of spectator,” he said.
Aid is then meant to reach battered Aleppo, where an estimated 250,000 people in the rebel-held half of the city are living under government siege.
But forty trucks carrying desperately-needed food aid were still stuck on the border with Turkey on Saturday.
“Still no progress, but the UN is ready to move once we get the go ahead,” said David Swanson, a spokesman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
The UN has said it cannot deliver aid until “all guarantees are in place for safe delivery.”
AFP’s correspondent in Aleppo’s eastern districts said the city was calm on Saturday after a few rocket attacks overnight

Jolani says U.S strikes vs. JFS are because JFS is a powerful faction, despite its new “lack of” ties to Al-Qaeda.

Jolani paints recent offensives in #Hama as being aimed towards “liberating” #Homs city from #Assad regime control.

Jolani accused the US-#Russia deal of being only focused on “security issues”, aiming for the opposition’s surrender

Jolani accuses the UN (& De Mistura) of pursuing a methodical policy for #Aleppo’s defeat to the #Assad regime.

Jolani talks about “advanced” unity talks in #Syria, but acknowledges there are differences between some groups.

Jolani says Syrians’ chief concern is rejecting “humiliation”, not seeking food aid from the world’s powers. #Syria

Jolani's talking about the need for governance structures that are separate from military activities in #Syria.

Jolani "De Mistura only appears when Opposition is losing, to demand withdrawal from cities to be handed to Assad Regime".

What is happening in Syria now is “ the transfer of populations to create new demographics.” under the close watch of the UN

Jolani UN is playing the worst role in Aleppo, they agree with Assad Regime on besieging the city and control all roads".

SO did Russian allow for the FF in order to pressure CENTCOM into working jointly with them AND was there Russian troops in the position that was struck???????

Russia just confirmed my assumption.........

Russia says/imply: if US-led coalition attacks were a mistake, its because US refusing to coordinate strikes with us

US coalition officials in Qatar operations center informed Russian military ahead of today's strike(s) in Deir ez-Zor.

Obama apologizing to Assad for air support gone awry, while UN confirms Assad still using CWs, is really the only way this could have ended.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Obama administration official expresses #US regret for 'unintentional loss of life' after airstrike on #Syria forces.

BUT has Assad and Putin "apologized" for the "unintentional" killing of over 470-500,00 Syrians, genocide, war crimes, torture and disappearances.....????

Since 2012 the Obama WH knew of the genocide, war crimes, torture and starvation being driven as Assad's anti Sunni agenda....BUT decided that doing "nothing stupid"...was the way forward in 2012 which then then there were only 7000 dead....now four years later it is over 470-500,000 and it is still climbing.......

SO this now appears to be a "fig leaf" to cover the Obama WH failure to respond......

Samantha Power saying Russia complicit in Syria's "systematic atrocities." She's right, but it's too little too late.

Samantha Power at UN: "we regret the loss of life" but "since 2011 Assad's regime have been striking Syrian civilians relentlessly"

Power accuses Russia of cynicism because Russia "never called for investigations or emergency UNSC consultations" into Assad's atrocities

Power at UN: "This meeting tonight is a diversion - The Syrian government allowed ISIS to grow and prospered right beside the Assad regime"

Churkin sarcastically: “Out of nothing, the US chose to help the Syrian army in Deir Ezzor.“ ...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EMq31SVciqM#…
He has a point.

USA give close air support to #Syria's #Assad-regime that gassed, tortured & killed tens of thousands people- for a non existing #ceasefire

Who give #US airforce the wrong coordinates for airstrikes near #DeirEzzor airbase which killed 80-100 #Assad-forces?
Intention?

IF confirmed...this is a sad statement on the Obama/Kerry FP....provide CAS for a genocidal military and deny CAs to those fighting against that genocidal dictator.....MIGTH in fact explain just why Kerry does not want to fully release all the secret agreements around his somewhat chaotic ceasefire that has basically failed due to no humanitarian aid being delivered as Assad/Putin still block all shipments....

Seems this was part of "ceasefire" deal with #Russia: help #Assad-regime with airstrikes against #IS

Obama FAILED

Question: Is it normal for CENTCOM to carry out strikes vs #ISIS *so* close to #Assad regime troop positions?
(i.e. Was this air support?)

ACTUALLY a very fair question in light of the secrecy Kerry has had in place on the ceasefire agreement...

WHAT is strange about this whole incident is that there have been a number of reports that US led coalition AFs have previously hit Assad forces in their air strikes around DeirEzzor and not much was made of it by Russia and Assad .....

AND Russia has had a number of FF strikes on Assad regime forces killing far more than in this strike....

IMHO the following happened....IS had a major attack yesterday on the hill where the US hit...which eventually actually did over run Assad regime forces....and where in control of the hill WHEN the US hit it...actually IS confirmed that they had been struck by the US BUT it went under in the initial Russian reporting that Assad troops had been hit.. WHAT also net under during that Russian deliberate "fog of war" was the fact that there had been a number of reports stating that the proAssad regimes forces had broken and run from their position....WAS this the result of the IS success or from the US air strikes.....suspect out of fear of being captured by IS.....

IF we then look at the US reporting that they had been tracking IS in this exact region position then it does not surprise me about the "fog of war"

So were the high loses that the Russians and Assad are claiming actually results of the IS attacks and or the US air strikes?

On how Jabhat Fateh al-Sham's notable change of tone and how it's gaining from Washington's latest blunders

September 18, 2016 Updated: September 18, 2016 05:52 PM

Syrian war enters a new phase as factions realign

Syria’s peace plan is flawed and Jabhat Al Nusra knows it


A week ago, the United States was on track to launch a campaign against Jabhat Fateh Al Sham, formerly Jabhat Al Nusra, in collaboration with Russia. But the deal has so far led to further division between the two countries and deeper solidarity with JFS from a diverse range of Syrian rebel forces and individuals.

Diplomatic tension between Washington and Moscow escalated on the weekend due to Russia’s failure to help aid convoys enter Aleppo. The US gave Russia until Monday to ensure the delivery of aid. Tension peaked after the US-led anti-ISIL coalition killed "by mistake" dozens of Syrian military forces in Deir Ezzor on Saturday.

Meanwhile, JFS – the focus of the latest US effort in Syria – appears to be gaining in some quarters. On the day that the US-Russian diplomatic spat reached a high point, the group’s leader, Abu Muhammad Al Jolani, appeared on Al Jazeera to talk about the international plan to fight his group.
For the first time since its rebranding on July 28, JFS’s tone and conduct seem to be changing amid a noticeable increase in solidarity among various forces in Syria, even as many doubt the group’s true disengagement from Al Qaeda.

Al Jolani highlighted issues to which many in rebel-held areas relate and which jihadist groups often neglect. One was the lack of education for thousands of children in rebel areas, which he said would cause those children to engage in crimes as they grow up. He also suggested an armed struggle would continue "until the toppling of the regime".
Another interesting aspect of his remarks was his favourable tone towards the regional order. He referred to the resistance in Syria as a cornerstone for Arab Sunnis’ opposition to Iranian hegemony in the region, referring to certain countries by their official name, in contrast to the pejorative way his former "emir", Al Qaeda leader Ayman Al Zawahiri, refers to them.

Recent messaging by JFS echoes that tone. The group released a letter of gratitude to rebel organisations that opposed the US-Russian plan to target it. The statement contradicted a fatwa issued only days before by Abu Muhammad Al Maqdisi, a notorious Al Qaeda ideologue who said rebels who co-operated with Turkey against ISIL in northern Syria were apostates. The way the statement was worded specifically targeted the takfiri attitude within Syria.

Whether JFS has truly split from Al Qaeda is still in question, but many in Syria now view it differently. More importantly, the American plan to target the group is pushing more people to support it, since the US-Russian deal is seen as aiding the regime of Bashar Al Assad.
Even as Washington doubts the group’s disengagement from Al Qaeda – as do many, including this author – the US cannot pretend that nothing has happened since July 28, when the group recast itself as a Syrian group committed to a Syrian cause. In this sense, JFS outplayed the US by its rebranding, and the change in perception requires a new way of dealing with it, regardless of whether American officials believe the group has truly changed its ideology and allegiance.

For many ordinary Syrians, fairly or not, the US targets JFS not because of its ideology but because it is emerging as a powerful rebel force in Syria. The group, they say, has demonstrated time and again that it is committed to the fight against the regime and not to the forceful implementation of sharia, as ISIL did. It then announced publicly, through its leader in May last year, that the group was forbidden by Al Qaeda to use Syria to launch attacks in the West. Finally, it abandoned the name of Al Qaeda in its public discourse.

Russia violates the deal, the US clings to it JFS gains

Comment of the so called US friendly fire incident.........

IS is still standing by their first statement that they were in fact hit by US coalition aircraft...which actually supports the US....interesting that a high ranking Assad General, Commander of a Palestinian mercenary militia and "rumored" that a senor Russian SF Commander "happened to be killed" by the so called air strike WHEN IS claims that they were at the same time were being attacked by the US......

ONE thing is for sure....Russian response was way over the top even for them WHICH indicates something serious did happen ie the potential killing of a senior Russia Spetsnaz field commander.....

We have the Australians and Danish claiming they were the strike aircraft and we have CENTCOM stating they fully informed the Russians of the strike coordinates AND the Russians did not respond to not strike the coordinates.

So was the FF incident a CENTCOM OR Russia/Assad air strike in the wrong place as the Russians have already had over eight FF incidents in the last six months....

OR did actually IS hit a command post when they launched their attack on the airfield AND the Russians are simply taking a cheap shot at the US to cover up that command post hit....

SINCE Russia has arrived in Syria the Russian MoD has not been quite the totally "truthful organization" these days......actually they lie about 98% of the time in their PRs and with their videos......just as they do in eastern Ukraine.

BTW...the Russian "fog of war" was interesting to watch develop vs now what CENTCOM is saying.....

Initial Russian and Assad comments were that two F16s and 2 A10s hit their position then later Assad commenters stated and largely unchallenged by Russia ....Apache's were also used........AND all Russia comments never came off this air strike mix of aircraft..

BUT WAIT only the Danes and the Australians were actually flying the strike...and there were no A10s and no Apache's.....

THE US stated they will pay damages to those families affected by the strike BUT Russia/Assad have not supplied a list of troops killed and the only group claiming any loses was the Palestinian militia who fully named SEVEN...but will not be paid as the US considers them "terrorists".....

http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/197727/the-ambassador-from-hell

By Lee Smith


Even die-hard supporters of President Barack Obama’s “realist” approach to foreign affairs are nauseated by the White House’s Syria policy. New York Times columnist Roger Cohen, a vocal supporter of the nuclear weapons agreement with Iran, is fed up with nearly five years of the “fecklessness and purposelessness” of a Syria policy that “has become hard to distinguish” from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s. “Syria is now the Obama administration’s shame,” Cohen wrote last week, “a debacle of such dimensions that it may overshadow the president’s domestic achievements.” Ambassador Dennis Ross and New York Times military correspondent David Sanger also published articles excoriating Obama’s policies in Syria.

There is a military solution, it’s “just not our military solution,” a senior U.S. security official admitted to Sanger. It’s Putin’s.
Perhaps most damning of the stink-bouquets was a Washington Post op-ed from former New Republic literary editor Leon Wieseltier and Harvard professor Michael Ignatieff. “It is time for those who care about the moral standing of the United States to say that this policy is shameful,” they wrote. “If the United States and its NATO allies allow [Putin and his allies] to encircle and starve the people of Aleppo, they will be complicit in crimes of war.”

What made the Post op-ed particularly striking is that Wieseltier and Ignatieff are both friends and former colleagues of Obama’s U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power. Ignatieff taught with her at Harvard, and Wieseltier published early parts of her book on genocide, A Problem From Hell: America and the Age of Genocide, which described in searing detail the strategies by which American officials typically deflect responsibility for the massacre of innocents.

Power’s 600-page book consists largely of case studies of how the United States responded to 20th-century genocides, like the Turkish genocide of the Armenians, the Nazi Holocaust, Cambodia, Saddam Hussein’s genocidal campaigns against the Kurds, Bosnia, Rwanda, Srebrenica, and Kosovo. As Power notes in the book’s conclusion, “What is most shocking about America’s reaction … is not that the United States refused to deploy U.S. ground forces to combat the atrocities. For much of the century, even the most ardent interventionists did not lobby for U.S. ground invasions. What is most shocking is that U.S. policymakers did almost nothing to deter the crime.”

There can be no doubt that the murderous campaign of sectarian cleansing that Assad and his allies Russia and Iran have been waging against the Sunni Arab population of Syria is a crime of historic proportions—the first genocide of the still-young 21st century, or, if you prefer the language of a recent U.N. report, state-sponsored mass extermination. Power herself has documented it all on Twitter:

Eastern Aleppo aid stuck in Turkey as Syria truce ends


Two 20-truck aid convoys destined for eastern Aleppo with enough supplies to feed 185,000 people for a month are still stuck in Turkey, a U.N. spokesman said on Monday, hours after a ceasefire in Syria expired.

The U.N. has said it does not have sufficient security guarantees from all sides in the conflict, now in its sixth year, to be able to deliver to eastern Aleppo, which is held by rebels battling to topple President Bashar al-Assad.

The aid has been sitting at the border for around a week.

The U.N. also wants to deliver to other hard-to-reach areas in Syria, but says it has not received necessary permissions from the Syrian government to proceed.

The seven-day ceasefire declared by the Syrian army expired at midnight with no announcement of its extension. A Syrian rebel official said the truce had ended, and there was no hope the eastern Aleppo aid would be delivered.

Up to 275,000 people remain trapped in that part of Syria's most populous city without food, water, proper shelter or medical care, said U.N. Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Stephen O'Brien.

"I am pained and disappointed that a United Nations convoy has yet to cross into Syria from Turkey, and safely reach eastern Aleppo," O'Brien said in a statement.

He referred to a 20-truck convoy, the first of two that would have carried flour and other food supplies, enough to feed some 185,000 people for one month, he said.

Both convoys are still sitting at the Turkey-Syria border, where they have been for almost a week, U.N. spokesman Jens Laerke said.
Humanitarian access to Aleppo hinges on control of the main road into the besieged rebel-held part of the divided city.

The road needs to become a demilitarised zone in order for aid to proceed. Russia has said the Syrian army had begun to withdraw from the road, but insurgent groups in Aleppo have said they have seen no such move and would not pull back from their own positions around the road until it did so.

"I hope that all parties to the conflict, and those with influence over them, would see the convoy as an opportunity to move forward," O'Brien said.

"Humanitarian aid must remain neutral, impartial and free of political and military agendas."

SO now was actually the air strike an intentional strike ...we have now UK, Danes, Australians and US having flown this mission....WHAT the heck were they striking that needed aircraft from FOUR countries?

AND in the end only IS seems to be telling the truth...At least they admitted being hit by aircraft......

So was it Kerry's PLAN B hard at work...and that was why the Russians were extremely T-'d off.....???

Especially when the position hit was evidently a Russian Assad command position.....MAYBE a clear and concise shot across the Russian/Assad "actions" in violating the Russian supported ceasefire????

Perhaps a rather dry academic article, but very timely. The author concludes:
In conclusion, the current ceasefire is unlikely to last. But it is not the ‘last chance’ for peace in Syria. The difficulties with the current ceasefire are a reflection of the recurring problems of terminating civil wars. Further initiatives will occur; some of these also will fail. If a political settlement is arrived at, it is likely to emerge only in the longer term and only, sadly, after continued prolongation of the war.

Damascus: that's how the @UN aid arrived in besieged Moadamiyeh after 4th Division "controls". Unfit 4 consumption.

THIS was suppose to be a legitimate UN aid delivery as agreed to by Russia.....

Assad troops deliberately desteroyed the food as starvation is their goal.....

NOTICE neither Obama or Kerry said a single word about Russian/Assad violations concerning the delivery of aid to the beseiged areas.....

Damascus: #UN aid convoy for besieged #Maadamiyeh southwest of #Damascus was looted by pro-#Assad forces today.

THIS point is critical and it concerns the supposedly neutral role of the UN in Syria...IT IS NOT NEUTRAL...

Assad's 4th Division forces destroyed most of the aid for besieged #Maadamiyeh while the #UN employees were present..

Aleppo: In 6 days of the "ceasefire" the #UN was not able to deliver 1 biscuit to Eastern #Aleppo, because #Assad blocking the aid convoys.

AND Russia/US signed off on the deliveries so Russia defintely is supporting now the Assad starvation tactics.....

US says it's prepared to extend Syria truce despite violations and Syrian announcement it is over" ...'let's pretend' ...

Why even bother making/extending it if Assad/Russia violate it at will AND NO AID WAS DELIVERED?

Now the Obama/Rhodes/Kerry WH is an embarassment to US FP.......

A THREE YEAR OLD could do better by simply throwing darts against a list of options pinned to a wall......

SO Assad/Putin conducts air strikes, starves thousands, adheres to no ceasefire, conducts artillery strikes and ground offensives non stop AND DELIVERS NO HUMANITARIAN AID as agreed to........

BUT WE THE US will look the other way...come on...this is really bad policy that is coming out of this WH.....this is not diplomacy...this is simply surrendering US FP to Assad, Putin and Iran......

THIS will fully now convince the armed opposition to Assad that in fact there has been a "golden handshake" between Obama and Putin for their destruction......

NOW this explains the Erdogan statement stating the US told him to go no further south....AND his response was "kiss me on the cheek"...I will go where I want to as it is my TAF and the armed Syrian opposition FSA that determines where we go...NOT the US.....
