“Le fait de signer le traité sur l’interdiction de l’usage d’armes chimiques ne veut pas dire que notre pays est dépourvu d’autres capacités stratégiques. Au contraire, la Syrie dispose d’autres potentialités qui l’exemptent d’un recours à l’arme chimique. ”

Wael al-Haqi qui s’exprimait au cours d’un entretien avec Al-Ahed a poursuivi : ” Quand il existe des armes stratégiques qui sont parfaitement opérationnelles le cas échéant, pourquoi utiliser l’arme chimique qui ne peut dans ce cas-ci changer le rapport des forces” ! ”

Ce qui peut établir un vrai équilibre dans les rapports des forces en présence ce sont des systèmes de défense anti missiles et le système de défense anti aérienne” Interrogé sur l’initiative russe, Al-Halqi l’a salué à titre de démarche qui a écarté le danger d’une action militaire d’envergure qui aurait pu détruire entrièrement les infrastructures économiques et les services publics de la Syrie”.

La Syrie a fini par accepter de renoncer à son arsenal chimique après que la Russie l’eut assuré sur son intention de lui livrrer des armes stratégiques dont les S300. Outre le système de défense anti-missile ultraperformant de S300; les Russes envisageraient de livrer à Damas la DCA et le système radar, façon d”éviter que le pays fasse l’objet des raids et de la Turquie et d’Israël”

All personnel withdrawn from Russian navy base in Syria – diplomat

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister says all personnel had been evacuated from the navy resupply base in Tartus, Syria, adding that not a single Russian military serviceman remained in the country.

Mikhail Bogdanov made the announcement in an interview with the Al-Hayat newspaper. “Presently, the Russian Defense Ministry has not a single person stationed in Syria. The base does not have any strategic military importance,” the newspaper quoted the Russian official as saying.

Russian media have verified the statement and the business daily Vedomosti quoted an unnamed source in the Defense Ministry as saying that this was true as all military and civilian personnel had been evacuated from the Tartus base and there were no Russian military instructors working with the Syrian military forces. The source added that the withdrawal was prompted not only by the increased risks caused by the ongoing military conflict, but also by the fact that in the current conditions any incident involving Russian servicemen would likely have some unfavorable reaction from the international community.

Russia currently has a 16-ship flotilla in the Mediterranean Sea but none of them has called at the port of Tartus in recent months and there were no reports of such plans.

Mikhail Bogdanov is also Russian President’s plenipotentiary for Middle East issues and he headed the Russian delegation at this week’s talks between Russia, US and UN on preparations of the major international conference on Syria, dubbed Geneva-2.

Following the Tuesday round of talks another Russian diplomat – Deputy Foreign Minister Gennadiy Gatilov – told reporters that the sides failed to agree on a number of questions and the terms of the future conference were not yet agreed. In particular, the participants of the talks varied on Iran’s possible role in the future conference.

Moscow supports Tehran’s participation in talks as it would make a positive contribution to the possible political settlement in Syria, the Russian official noted.

Besides, the participation of some of the Syrian opposition groups remains under question though the US side said they were working on this, Gatilov added.

The Russian diplomat said that the supplies of weapons to the Syrian opposition were not discussed at Tuesday’s talks, though he noted that this issue “was not creating positive political environment for the start of the political process.”

Gatilov said that Russia still hoped the plan to call the international conference would end in success. In particular, the issue will be discussed at the forthcoming meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US State Secretary John Kerry, due soon within the framework of the ASEAN conference in Brunei.

During his recent visit to London and meeting with British Prime Minister Cameron, President Putin passed on a message to the US and France in response to their recent announcement that they will arm the [Al Nusrah] fighters in Syria.

As Russia is a sovereign nation dealing with the sovereign, legitimate government of Syria, some new arms which have never left Russia before [never previously deployed in Syria] will be delivered to the Syrian military.

The Patriot Missiles will be hit and repealed with S 300 SAM [already installed in Syria]. Putin also threatened to deliver the more advanced S400 anti-aircraft missiles (see image below) far superior to the Patriot missiles and ranked as the World’s most advanced air defense system.

kind.(see video below)

He added that Russia will supply 400 of these launchers which will be able to destroy all targets around Syria’s borders.

A British intelligence report stated that Putin went to London bringing his own Russian cooked food and did not consume anything from Britain including water as he even brought his own water with him reportedly because he had concerns of being poisoned.

The British intelligence site stated that Putin threatened to send other secret Russian made weapons to Syria which would tip the balance of power even further in favour of Syria and re-iterated that these weapons will not be used against Israel on condition that Israel will not participate in the war within Syria and neighbouring countries. {Lebanon, Jordan]

S-300 pour l’Iran: la Russie souhaite un accord à l’amiable

La Russie a peu de chances de gagner le procès sur le non-respect du contrat portant sur la vente de missiles sol-air S-300 à l’Iran, elle aspire à un accord à l’amiable, a annoncé jeudi à Amman le président du holding russe de hautes technologies Rostec Sergueï Tchemezov.

“Un procès est en cours auprès d’un tribunal arbitral suisse. Malheureusement, nous avons peu de chances de le gagner. A présent, nous cherchons à régler l’affaire à l’amiable avec l’Iran, mais en vain”, a indiqué M.Tchemezov lors d’une cérémonie d’inauguration de l’usine d’assemblage de lance-roquettes RPG-32 en Jordanie.

La Russie a signé un contrat d’environ 800 millions de dollars sur la livraison de cinq unités complètes de missiles sol-air S-300 à l’Iran en 2007. En septembre 2010, Moscou a suspendu l’exécution du contrat avant de rompre le contrat en octobre de la même année en application de la résolution 1929 du Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU interdisant la livraison d’armes conventionnelles à Téhéran. Le ministère iranien de la Défense a porté plainte auprès de la Cour internationale d’arbitrage de Genève contre l’exportateur d’armes russe Rosoboronexport. La République islamique cherche à obtenir 4 milliards USD de réparations.

Après l’annulation du contrat, les Etats-Unis, qui critiquaient la Russie pour ses livraisons d’armes à l’Iran, ont changé de rhétorique. “A présent, les Américains disent que la Russie doit assumer la responsabilité de sa décision de rompre le contrat, la résolution 1929 du Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU ne concernant pas les missiles S-300 qui sont une arme défensive”, a ajouté M.Tchemezov.

Russia Confirms S-300 Missiles to Syria

Russia has criticized the end of the European Union’s end of the arms embargo on armed groups and added that the S-300 missile defence system is a “stabalising factor” in Syria.

Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov was referring to the results of Monday’s meeting in Brussels between EU member state representatives.

Russia insists that its own sale of arms to the Syrian government helps the international effort to end the two-year-long conflict. “Those systems by definition cannot be used by militant groups on the battlefield,” Ryabkov said. “We consider this delivery a factor of stabilization. We believe that moves like this one to a great degree restrain some hotheads from escalating the conflict to the international scale, from involving external forces.”

israel: S-300 Missiles Moving to Syria

Israel’s Air Force Commander Major General Amir Eshel said today that S-300 advanced missile defense system will soon arrive in Syria.

The S-300 systems have been modernised repeatedly to maintain it’s reputation as the ultimate rocket and aircraft destroying machines. The S-300PMU2 Favorit can launch six missiles at once, each capable of destroying aircraft flying at several times the maximum speed of the F-16 and F-22 fighter jets – the flaunted possessions of the Israeli and US air forces, as well as intercepting ballistic targets.

Speaking at a convention in Herzliya, Eshel added “there is a clear understanding that such capabilities will produce confidence and aggressive behavior.”

“Aerial superiority is a condition to win and win quickly, and is of great strategic importance. The other side understands that well, which is why Assad, with his low budget, has invested billions into purchasing antiaircraft missiles.”

“It’s not just our problem. The challenge that is developing in the north did not start yesterday and there isn’t a challenge that has no solution,” the air force chief noted, adding that Syria could collapse soon and different forces could get hold of Assad’s armory.

“This does not mean we will act, but it means we must be ready with our planes and missile defense systems. No one is going to tell us ‘take two weeks to prepare for the war.’ We will have to be ready for confrontations in Gaza and Lebanon, including long-range ones. Failure to prepare for this would mean a failure to learn the lessons of the Yom Kippur War.”

IDF Chief of Staff Brig. Gen. Benny Gantz added: “In light of the region’s instability, the military faces a real scenario of a confrontation on multiple fronts, and is in a new resource reality which could change it completely.”

The revelations come after an IDF vehicle was destroyed by Syrian forces in the Golan Heights.
