The US-led, so-called anti-terrorist, coalition has reportedly shot down a Syrian government forces aircraft. Reuters reports the Syrian Arab Army announced that the aircraft was brought down in the southern Raqqa countryside, while it was engaging a fleeing ISIS convoy. The pilot remains missing.

Statement issued by the Syrian General Command of the Army and Armed Forces

 

Quote

The International Alliance (IAAF) this afternoon called for the targeting of one of our fighter jets in the Rusafa area in the southern Rifqa district while carrying out a combat mission against an organization calling on the terrorist in the area, which led to the plane crash and the loss of the pilot.

 

This blatant attack confirms beyond doubt the reality of the US position supporting terrorism, which aims to try to influence the ability of the Syrian Arab army the only effective force with its allies that exercise their legitimate right to fight terrorism throughout the territory of the homeland, especially as this attack comes at a time that achieves In which the Syrian Arab Army and its allies made clear progress in fighting the organization calling on the terrorist who is being defeated in the Syrian desert on more than one direction.

 

It also affirms the existing coordination between the United States of America and the organization of the terrorist advocate, and exposes the malicious intentions of the United States of America in the management and investment of terrorism to achieve its objectives in passing the American Zionist project in the region.

 

The General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces, warning of the serious consequences of this blatant attack on counterterrorism efforts, affirms that such attacks will not discourage them from their determination and determination to continue the war against the terrorist organizations and groups associated with them and restore security and stability to all the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic.

So, the video they used for the source ... and supposedly "obtained by Al-Masdar" in this June 14, 2017 ZeroHedge "article" is from at least 2014  (about 1:45 into this video you'll see the above screen grab).

Was talking about the .jpg in the ZH article.  The video in the ZH article is 1:42 - thru the rest of the 2014 YouTube video.  Just found it funny ... because I knew I had seen that video some where before.

This is middle east today in The New York Times:

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/18/world/middleeast/iran-syria-missile-launch-islamic-state.html?rref=collection%2Fsectioncollection%2Fmiddleeast

 

The Guards Corp said it “targeted the headquarters and meeting place and suicide car assembly line” of “ISIS terrorists” in the province of Deir al-Zour, where Islamic State forces surround an estimated 200,000 people in a government-held section of the provincial capital of the same name.

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/18/world/middleeast/iraq-mosul-islamic-state.html

 

ERBIL, Iraq — Iraqi forces on Sunday began penetrating the narrow streets and warrens of Mosul’s heavily populated old city, in the last phase of a months long battle against the Islamic State militants that American commanders have described as one of the toughest in urban warfare since World War II.

The general command called the action a "flagrant aggression" that affirmed the United States' "real stance in support of terrorism," according to Syrian Armed Forces.

"The attack stresses coordination between the US and ISIS, and it reveals the evil intentions of the US in administrating terrorism and investing it to pass the US-Zionist project in the region".

And this is why the world is laughing at Donald Trump and co.

That's odd - CNN (not the Syrian military) quotes a spokesperson for the USAF that the PIQ (plane in question) was fingered attacking US-backed rebel forces - not ISIS (despite the whole furball being in the vicinity of Raqqa - the caliphate's claimed western capital city; the eastern capital was Mosul).  Still, hasn't the Syrian military's position (not the Russian position, curiously) claimed that ISIS has no forces in Syria - let alone the vicinity of Raqqa?

As I understand it:

 

The majority of ISIS forces have been leaving Raqqa and moving to Dier ez-Zor where presumably they will make a last stand in an area more geographically to their advantage.

 

So the mysterious part is with the bulk of ISIS now in Dier ez-Zor, the media attention is still on Raqqa.

To scare away the adversary forces, American warplanes buzzed the pro-Assad troops in what the Pentagon called a “show of force.” That appeared to put an end to the fighting, and the Americans sought to defuse the situation by calling their Russian counterparts from Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar.

 

But the Syrians were not finished. At 6:43 p.m., a Syrian SU-22 warplane dropped several bombs near the American-backed fighters. Attempts to warn the Syrian plane away from the area using an emergency radio frequency failed, said Col. John J. Thomas, the spokesman for the United States Central Command, which oversees American military operations in the Middle East.

 

An F/A-18 “Super Hornet,” which was patrolling the area after launching from the George H. W. Bush aircraft carrier, quickly shot down the Syrian plane. American advisers were not in the immediate vicinity of the bombing by the Syrian SU-22.

 

A statement by the American-led task force that is fighting the Islamic State stressed that it was taken under rules of engagement permitting the “collective self-defense” of its Syrian partners.

There's more going on besides the 'gotcha' after the Sukhoi dropped its bombs.  

 

 Aviation Week has an article about how F-22 Raptors are "de-conflicting" the area by being the unseen junkyard dog, directing and warning off "non-coalition" aircraft. It's also doing CAS (close air support) using precision munitions.

But"U.S. and noncoalition aircraft were still communicating directly, over an internationally recognized, unsecure frequency often used for emergencies known as Guard," says Shell. His F-22s acted as a kind of quarterback, using high-fidelity sensors to determine the positions of all the actors on the battlefield, directing noncoalition aircraft where to fly and asking them over the Guard frequency to move out of the way. 

"The Raptors were able to fly in contested areas, in range of surface-to-air missile systems and fighters, without the noncoalition players knowing their exact positions," Shell says. This allowed them to establish air superiority giving noncoalition forces freedom of movement in the air and on the ground and a credible deterrent. 

"If we need to let them know that we are there for any reason, then we will let them know that we are there - usually to deter something that they are trying to do that we don't want them to do," he explains.

If you have been remaining ignorant as to why the U.S. foreign policy is being hated all around the world, this is why.

 

1) The U.S. is fighting on the side of ISIS.

2) The Western audience is regularly being sold, on zombie TV, various conflicts jump-started by western coalitions of the willing under the pretext of promoting democracy or responsibility to protect.

3) Evidently, the controlled chaos theory is being unfolded right in front of our eyes for the enrichment of the mil-indu complex and sustainment of the dying U.S. Empire of the Dollar as the world's sole reserve currency.

Russia Halts Cooperation With US Within Deconfliction Channel in Syrian Airspace

 

"Russian Aerospace Forces' jets were conducting operations in Syrian airspace that time. However, the command of the coalition forces didn't use the existing channel between the air command of the Qatari airbase al Udeid and the [Russian] Hmeymim airbase to avoid incidents over Syria," the ministry said.

Russian military halts Syria sky incident prevention interactions with US as of June 19 – Moscow

 

Downing the military jet within Syrian airspace “cynically” violates the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic, Russian military said.

 

The actions of the US Air Force are in fact “military aggression” against Syria, the statement adds.

 

Quote

"Any aircraft, including planes and drones belonging to the international coalition operating west of the Euphrates river, will be tracked by Russian anti-aircraft forces in the sky and on the ground and treated as targets," the Russian defence ministry said.

Unfortunately it is only going to intensify now. Pretty good opinion on the matter:

What's likely happening is Qatar has had to come to an agreement with Iran to supply their shared offshore gas reserve (North Dome/South Pars) to Indian and Chinese markets, and abandon the Syrian gas pipeline extension to Europe via Syria.  Qatar and Iran are essentially producing out of the same massive offshore reserve in the Persian Gulf, and are competing on getting this gas to market.

 

Back in 2016, Qatar had purchased a 20% stake in Rosneft along with Glencore, so Qatar will get a piece of the profits from the Russian gas dominance in Europe.  Qatar cutting a deal would allow Qatar access to Iranian terrestrial pipeline networks into Asia, although likely not at the profit levels they would like if they had full control of the pipeline networks.

 

Initially Qatar had planned a gas pipeline via Saudi and Syria en route to Europe, which was blocked by Syria back in 2012, and then Russia had officially entered the fray to defend their literal monopoly of the European gas market.  Enter ISIS, a Saudi-Qatari-US-Israeli backed private military contractors to overthrow Assad, get a puppet President in who would grant construction rights for the Qatari pipeline.  This brute force strategy using foreign backed PMC's have utterly failed with Russian support.

 

From the other end, the United Slaves of Israel have blocked Iran from building a gas pipeline through the military campaigns in Iraq, thus closing the Meditteranean corridor for Iran.  This has forced Iran to focus their attention on supplying the Asian market, most noteably China, who have been purchasing an increasing amount of oil and gas from Iran and Russia, and less and less from Saudi and the other gulf countries.  China is doing this to try to force Saudi, Qatar, and the gulf monarchies to accept the Yuan for oil/gas payments instead of USD, and is putting the Gulf monarchies on a collision course with the United Slaves of Israel and threatening the Petrodollar mercantilism racket.  Whenever the United Slaves of Israel dollar is threatened, a false flag ensues, and a major military campaign is executed.  Iraq and Libya are perfect examples.

 

As a matter of financial survival, Qatar had to make a deal with Iran since Qatar has been boxed out of the European market directly, and Iran was the biggest obstacle in getting Qatar's and other gulf monarchies oil and liquified natural gas to the two biggest markets in the region -- India, and China.

 

China and Iran are now holding military naval drills in the strait of Hormuz whilst the US is holding military drills with Qatar. Part of it is to deescalate the situation with the Saudis. I guess Qatar was used as a warning shot to set an example of what is to be expected if the petrodollar agenda isn't followed.

 

With the recent move by the US to block Russian gas entering the EU market via Bulgaria, then the attempt of turning Turkey against Russia via the shot down jet incident ultimately leading to a coup and renewed relations between Russia and Turkey for Turkstream, and now via Nord Stream 2, Germany and Austria have called the US out. 

 

"That Must Not Happen": Germany Threatens US With Retaliation Over New Russia Sanctions

Quote

One day after the Senate almost unanimously passed a bill to impose new sanctions on Russia, an unexpected outcry against the US decision emerged from two of America's closest allies, Germany and Austria, who yesterday slammed the new sanctions and accused the U.S. of having ulterior motives in seeking to enforce the energy blockade, which they said is trying to help American natural gas suppliers at the expense of their Russian rivals. And they warned the threat of fining European companies participating in the Nord Stream 2 project "introduces a completely new, very negative dimension into European-American relations."

...

It is a mix of posturing with a flavour of reality since Germany in effect is powerless by design.

 

Things will heat up now since Iran knows that it will be next.

ZH was accurate in saying the US shot down a Syrian plane.  Just loaded with bias, inaccurate info, and crap reporting.   Not sure why the OP has not been edited as it was pointed out that their info was inaccurate and taken from what happened years ago.

You are being too kind to ZH.

 

I just visited ZH and Infowars for the first time to see what the fuss was all about and good grief, it should take a normal human adult about 30 seconds to realize that these sites are utter trash. Infowars looks like it belongs on a LCD monitor at the supermarket check-out line.

 

I had always thought the reason these sites get mentioned every so often was because they used some clever trickery to perform subtle persuasion on rational human beings but in reality they don't even bother to hide how insanely stupid they are.

 

In order for the ZH argument that the Kelly interview will cause millions of people to follow Infowars to make any sense, one needs to build a Venn Diagram of the number of humans with an IQ high enough to read and comprehend the English language intersecting the number of humans with an IQ low enough to believe anything they see there. I think if millions of new viewers check out Infowars based on the Kelly interview, the Venn Diagram suggests he will be lucky to get 1 new follower.
