  • Iran: 'We felt proud’ - Tehran residents respond to Iran’s strike on militant positions in Syria

    Residents of Tehran responded to Iran's reported launch of a missile attack against militant positions in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, in the Iranian capital on Monday morning. Iran launched the attack, Sunday, in retaliation for recent twin attacks on the Iranian parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini's mausoleum that killed 18 people. SOT, Alireza Mihandoust, Tehran citizen (Farsi): "I actually see this as our right to give terrorists a slap and conduct an anti-terrorist operation in Iran with all audacity and we should change our position that buries our heads in the sand. Besides, Iran is full of fire and if we have no action it will encourage our enemies to think incorrectly."

Various of US soldiers and children STORYLINE The Korengal valley in eastern Afghanistan has seen some of the most intense fighting of the eight year-old US-led campaign to counter Taliban militants and al-Qaida affiliates. Fighting rages here daily. Taliban harassing fire on an isolated US outpost, with shots aimed from high mountains surrounding Firebase Restrepo, was countered with airstrikes on Sunday. The incident was filmed by an AP television crew embedded with the US forces. First to be called in to help defend the US infantry troops from 1st Battalion, 26th Regiment, were two Apache gunship helicopters. Soldiers on the ground directed the helicopters' rocket and machinegun fire towards the Taliban positions, hidden in dense woods high in the mountains flanking the Korengal valley. The hardy Taliban fighters endured the threat of the helicopters, responding with heavy machine gun. A10 'Warthog' aircraft took over from the Apaches, their howling scream ripping the air as their powerful main cannons fired. The A10s also dropped several bombs into the tree line, both white phosphorus and high explosive. The Korengal has earned the moniker "The Valley of Death".

The Russian military intervention in the Syrian Civil War began in September 2015 after an official request by the Syrian government for military help against rebel and jihadist groups.[85][86] The intervention initially consisted of air strikes fired by Russian aircraft stationed in the Khmeimim base at targets primarily in north-western Syria, against militant groups opposed to the Syrian government, including Syrian National Coalition, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), al-Nusra Front (al-Qaeda in the Levant) and the Army of Conquest.[87][88][89] Besides, Russian military advisors and special operations forces were stationed in Syria.[90] Prior to the intervention, Russian involvement in the Syrian Civil War had mainly consisted of supplying the Syrian Army.[91] Shortly after the operation began, Russian officials were cited as saying that, apart from fighting terrorist organisations such as ISIL, Russia′s goals included helping the Syrian government retake territory from various anti-government groups that are labelled by the U.S. and its coalition as ″moderate opposition″, a broader geopolitical objective being to roll back U.S. influence.[92] In his televised interview broadcast on 11 October 2015, Russian president Vladimir Putin said the military operation had been thoroughly prepared in advance; he defined Russia′s goal in Syria as "stabilising the legitimate power in Syria and creating the conditions for political compromise"[93] According to the U.S. State Department, the Russian government has also been concerned that "if the government fell, that there would be chaos and that would allow terrorist groups to consolidate",[94] a claim which the Russian government has been using to justify their intervention. The intervention has produced significant gains for the Syrian government,[95][96] including the recapture of Palmyra from ISIL in March 2016[97] and according to the U.S. State Department, one year after the start of their intervention the Russians "have succeeded in bolstering the [Syrian] regime."[94] The pro-opposition[98][99] Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has stated that between the initiation of the intervention in September 2015 and end of February 2016, Russian air strikes have killed at least 1,700 civilians, including more than 200 children. The Syrian Network for Human Rights puts the number even higher, and in its report stated that Russian attacks have killed more civilians than either ISIS or Assad's army.[100][101][102][103] Used weapons included unguided bombs, cluster bombs, incendiaries similar to white phosphorus and thermobaric weapons.[104][105][106] By end of September 2016, the pro-rebel Syrian Observatory for Human Rights stated that Russian airstrikes have killed around 3800 civilians, about a quarter of them children, along with 2,746 ISIS fighters, and 2,814 rebels.
