Syrian rebels desecrate churches in Syria

Churches being destroyed by rebels in Syria

Christian churches are being desecrated and looted in the Syrian city of Homs. The raids are being carried out by the Free Syrian Army, which is backed by a large number of international players, the US, Britain, France, Turkey, al-Qaida, and the Muslim Brotherhood among them.

That (nominally) Christian Europe lets this go on without even condemning it is a disgrace. The Russian TV channel reports:

Thousands of Christians have fled certain areas of Homs that fell into rebel hands in February.

Meanwhile, US intelligence operatives and diplomats continue to step up their contacts with Syrian rebels to help organize their growing military operations against President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.

According to senior US officials, the CIA and the State Department are helping the Free Syrian Army develop logistical routes for moving supplies into Syria and providing training in communications.

Reportedly, Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been paying salaries to the Syrian rebels for several months now. Meanwhile, Turkey, which hosts some units of the Free Syrian Army, ensures material and technical support, according to sources.

And many believe that as long as the US and its allies continue to blindly support the radical rebels, stability in Syria will remain unattainable.

It’s time that Germany steps up and in the strongest terms condemn the US and its Islamist allies!


Iranian sources report on future Iran-China-Russian exercise in Syria

According to Israeli news outlet DEBKAfile, which is known to be close to Israeli secret services, a joint military exercise is to be held in less than a months time by Iran, China, Russia and Syria on Syrian soil. The exercise would be one of the biggest ever held in the Middle East with over 90,000 personnel. According to the report, Beijing have already asked Egyptian authorities to permit the passage through the Suez Canal in late June of 12 naval ships heading for the Syrian port of Tartus, where Moscow maintains a naval and marine base.

The news has not yet been confirmed by official sources and could, of course, be a case of deception. What has been confirmed though is that Russia is deploying two warships to the Syrian port of Tartus, both ships are said to carry large number of marine soldiers.
