Syrian troops seize militant arms depot containing latest weapons made in NATO countries

Weapons manufactured in NATO member states make up the bulk of the terrorists’ arsenal. In particular, a UK-made 155 mm howitzer, manufactured in 2011, was discovered in the arms depot in Mayadin. "We have seized the latest weapons made in the US, Belgium and the UK, that are also used by NATO states," General al-Hassan stressed. The city of Mayadin is located 40 kilometers southeast of the provincial capital of Deir ez-Zor, on a key highway connecting Aleppo and the Abu Kamal city on Iraq’s border. Until recently, Mayadin was the most important terrorist stronghold in eastern Syria, considered to be "the IS capital."

IS terrorists control less than 5% of Syria’s territory — Russian defense minister

"Today, ISIL (former name of IS terror group) controls less than 5%, before the operation of the Russian Aerospace Forces, ISIL controlled more than 70% of Syria’s territory," Shoigu told the fourth meeting of defense ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member states and dialogue partners. "Some 998 towns and settlements have been liberated, and the liberated territory reaches 503,223 square kilometers. Many militants have been killed. The process of restoring peaceful life in the country has started," Shoigu said. About 2,500 settlements across Syria have signed reconciliation deals thanks to the focused efforts of the Russian center for reconciliation of warring parties. Since 2015, 1.126 mln people have returned home, including 660,000 this year.

CNN Caught Creating Fake News Again: Adding Words To Syrian Witness’ Statement To Fit Western Narrative

The CNN reporter predictably attributes the horrors facing the civilians as a result of the eastern part of Aleppo “being under siege by the Syrian military,” not the fact that terrorists had seized east Aleppo and were fighting to the death to keep it. Still he quotes an older man who paints a less than typical CNN-style portrayal of the “rebels.” The man says, “I wanted to leave with my kids fifteen days ago but the rebels shot at me and said ‘Hey you bastard! Do you want to join the regime?’”

The only thing surprising about the man’s statement was that it was actually aired on CNN.

However, the most interesting aspect of the report is what was attributed to the young boy whom CNN quotes as saying, “We were afraid that we would starve to death. We were also scared because heavy bombs were falling.”

John Brennan’s Police State USA – Mike Whitney

So it all started with Brennan, the resentful Intel chief who got his nose bloodied by Putin in Syria and decided to seek his revenge.

And, keep in mind, Washington’s Sunni proxies were not a division of the Pentagon; they were entirely a CIA confection: CIA recruited, CIA-armed, CIA-funded and CIA-trained. The defeat is not a loss for the US Military, but a blot on the record of CIA Director John Brennan, the architect and main proponent of the failed project to remove Assad. Brennan’s whole scheme has gone down in flames.

US NOW ADMITS SYRIAN "REBELS" HAVE USED CHEMICAL WEAPONS

rom the first moment chemical weapons were used on the Syrian battlefield, the American public was led to believe that only one side could possibly be responsible. The constant refrain in the echo chamber of US government officials and the mainstream media was that only the Assad government possessed chemical stockpiles and the technological capability of deploying such heinous weapons, therefore blame for each and every chemical attack from Ghouta to Khan Sheikhoun was laid at the feet of Assad and the Syrian military.

And yet last Wednesday, for the first time, the US State Department casually dropped an important admission into its official Syria travel warning for American citizens: that the core rebel group currently operating in northwest Syria not only possesses but has used chemical weapons - to the point that the State Department considers it a major enough threat to publicly warn citizens about.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that the only thing at which the Occupied Unhinged Surveilled States of Amerika excel is lying to the American public; or attempting to lie, as demonstrated by this article.

Narratives are always driven by agendas, and this issue of rebels using poison gas, was utter kryptonite to this government; so it lied, saying it was Bashar Al Assad's military which did this, when in fact, it was not.

SYRIA WAR REPORT – OCTOBER 23, 2017: ISIS MAY SURRENDER EASTERN BANK OF EUPHRATES TO US-BACKED FORCES

On October 22, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that they took control over the Omar oil fields in eastern Deir Ezzor, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. Lilwa al-Abdallah, one of the SDF spokespersons, said in a statement that the SDF “managed to liberate the fields without notable damages”.

Pro-SDF sources also claimed that the SDF established control over a large area north of the fields, including Tayyib al-Fal, al-Qusayriyah, al-Khurayzah, Shuhayl and other points.

On October 23, spokesman for the US-led coalition Army Colonel Ryan Dillon said in Twitter that the SDF caught ISIS off guard and the terrorist group had no time to destroy the infrastructure.

On Returning From Syria: More Convinced Than Ever Western Media Narrative Is Bullshit

By Brandon Turbeville

In early October, 2017, I had the pleasure of visiting Syria on a mission to get a sense of the toll of the war, the mindset of the people, and the general situation on the ground. The goal was to see the country in person, get a sense of what life is like in Syria today, talk to the Syrian people and hear their side of things; i.e. their opinions on the government and the “rebels/terrorists,” their living conditions, Syria before the war versus Syria now, and whatever else they wanted to share. We wanted to see the areas formerly under control of the terrorists and talk to the residents there. We also wanted to visit the areas firmly under government control and speak to the residents living in these areas as well.

US has wiped Raqqah off the face of earth: Russia

Russia says the US has wiped the Syrian city of Raqqah "off the face of the earth" with carpet bombing in the same way the United States and Britain bombed Germany's Dresden in 1945.

In a statement released on Sunday, the Russian Defense Ministry accused the West of having rushed to provide aid to Raqqah to cover up its own crimes.

"Raqqah has inherited the fate of Dresden in 1945, wiped off the face of the earth by Anglo-American bombardments," said Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenko.

Coalition wants Raqqa to be a Syrian center beyond Assad’s control — Russian senator

By allocating money for humanitarian assistance to Raqqa’s residents, the US-led coalition tries to organize a new Syrian center, which would be beyond control of President Bashar Assad, first deputy head of the Federation Council (parliament’s upper house) committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich told reporters on Sunday.

The immediate allocation of millions of dollars and euros for Raqqa, he said, is another example of how the US-led coalition uses double standards in Syria, and example of differentiating between "friendly" and "unfriendly."

US-allied force takes Syria's largest oil field from Daesh

The U.S.-led coalition said allied fighters captured Syria's largest oil field from Daesh (ISIS) Sunday, marking a major advance against the extremists in an area coveted by pro-government forces.

With Daesh in retreat, the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces and the Syrian government have been in a race to secure parts of the oil-rich Deir al-Zor province along the border with Iraq.

Why Vladimir Putin Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize (Seriously)

For many years, and despite all evidence to the contrary, the Western media has forwarded the inane idea that Vladimir Putin ranks in the same club with some of history's most loathsome creatures, up to and including Hitler.

The reality is that the Russian leader has done more to promote the cause of global peace and security than any other Western leader in recent times. That explains why he is the object of such intense scorn.

Israeli Merkava Hit by Hezbollah in 2006

This is what Hezbollah fighters did to Merkava MBT's in 2006 with Kornet ATGM's. The Israelis advanced up valleys without clearing the ridges. The Kornet outranged the Israeli's tank guns by over 1,000 meters and the Israelis couldn't elevate their tank cannons enough to shoot back anyway. They were out thought and out fought.
The IDF has been fighting unarmed people in the main since 1973. Hezbollah,the Iranians and Syrians are experienced blooded fighters with good weapons and tactics as well as strategy and they are backed up by The Bear. All the Israelis have left are nukes and the weakened US.
A very dangerous situation for the Planet and the People indeed..

Israel attacks on Golan sign of collusion with terrorists, Syria tells UN

Syria has criticized the UN Security Council for its inaction towards Israel’s fresh acts of aggression against its territory in the Golan Heights, denouncing the attacks as an example of Tel Aviv’s collaboration with terrorist groups.

In two letters sent to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the president of the UN Security Council on Saturday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry condemned Israel’s recent attacks as Tel Aviv’s “desperate attempt” to support terrorist groups in the area.

The letters warned about the serious repercussions of Israel’s repeated acts of aggression which they said constituted a flagrant violation of the principles of the UN Charter and the rule of international law, and expressed shock over the Security Council’s failure to condemn such Israeli attacks.

US-Backed Syrian Kurds Transfer Key Gas Field To Russians After Secret Talks

***
The gas field, which had the largest capacity of any in Syria prior to the conflict, is capable of producing 450 million cubic feet (13 million cubic meters) of natural gas per day. It is named for the American company which first discovered gas reserves and built a processing plant at the location, however, ConocoPhillips turned the facility over to the state-run Syrian Gas Company in 2005 and has no current association with it.

Beirut-based al-Masdar News broke the story based on Syrian military sources:

Nonetheless the unexpected transfer of the Conoco Gas Field by the SDF to the Syrian government does now raise questions as to whether or not the hitherto competition the Syrian Arab Army and Kurdish-led militias to seize control of the much larger Al-Omar Oil Field from ISIS further south is still on .>>>

Syrian forces recover Israeli, NATO-made arms from Daesh hideouts

Syrian military forces have discovered a large cache of Israeli-made weapons in the strategic city of Mayadin in Dayr al-Zawr province, days after retaking the eastern city from Daesh terrorists.

The weapons included several types of heavy, medium and light firearms that beside Israel, came from some European countries as well as members of the NATO military alliance, Syria's state news agency SANA reported Thursday, citing a field commander.

The commander said they had also found mortars, artillery equipment, large quantities of anti-armor munitions and a NATO- made 155mm cannon with a range of up to 40km (about 25 miles).

This was not the first time that the Syrian government forces made such discoveries from terrorist hideouts across the country.

CHEMICAL WEAPONS USE IN SYRIA AND DECLINE OF INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

When it comes to the two verifiable uses of sarin or sarin-like substances in Syria, namely the 2013 Ghouta attack and the 2017 Khan Sheykhoun attack, nearly all the available evidence points to them being used by the rebels. An MIT study of the Ghouta attack that examined the ballistics of the rockets used to deliver chemical agents concluded that they came from areas at the time held by the rebels. When it comes to Khan Sheykhoun, even the photos and videos made available by the rebels put into doubt the claim the munitions were delivered by Syrian aircraft, as there is no evidence of air-delivered munitions and moreover the symptoms displayed by the victims and the behavior of the first responders suggests exposure to a toxic industrial chemical rather than a highly lethal agent like Sarin.

More than 1,800 civilians killed overall in defeat of ISIS at Raqqa, say monitors

US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have announced the capture of Raqqa from so called Islamic State (ISIS) fighters — and while Coalition officials say small pockets of resistance remain, it is now possible to assess the significant civilian toll of the four month battle.

Some 200,000 civilians by some estimates were in the city when operations to dislodge ISIS began on June 6th. Though the SDF and Coalition appeared at times to give conflicting instructions to civilians, most were able to flee – including several thousand during the last week of fighting, following an agreement that also saw the surrender and evacuation of around 275 ISIS fighters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Trump campaigned on not only killing ISIS, but their families as well; we can see that demonstrated these huge numbers of casualties in Racca, where the US was absolutely not invited by the Syrian government to fight ISIS, but became, instead, an enabler for proxy jihadists.

TRUMP HAS KILLED MORE CIVILIANS WITH ILLEGAL DRONE STRIKES IN 9 MONTHS THAN OBAMA DID IN 8 YEARS

While the mainstream media focuses on anything but the current state of U.S. intervention in the Middle East, the Trump Administration is breaking records by accumulating a horrific number of civilian deaths.

Former President Obama earned the nickname of “Drone King” when he dramatically escalated the use of drone strikes, while also downplaying the number of innocent civilians who became “collateral damage.” In the two years that his administration devoted to publicly spending millions of taxpayer dollars to fight the Islamic State group, the estimated civilian death toll ranged from 2,300 to 3,400, according to Airwars, an organization tracking deaths in the war against ISIS.

President Trump has been in office for just 9 months, and he has already surpassed Obama’s murderous record with estimated numbers as high as 4,500 civilian deaths.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that this alleged "War on Terror" is simply an excuse to commit genocide wherever American troops are stationed, which cause those who survive to become radicalized, and repeat the cycle all over again, to insure the US's perpetual waging of war on societies who have the extremely bad taste to be living over resources those in the Bowels of power in DC have decided the Occupied, Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika, need, and to expropriate them in such a way that their value never trickles down to indigenous peoples.

No 16 year old American kid has ever seen this country not at a permanent state of war.

And the US military has assured us, very publicly, that these wars are going to get worse, and soon

US Military is Preparing for Decades of Hybrid Wars

Note the plural.

I would predict that at some point, during the Trump Administration, the draft will be introduced, and this time, the military will be coming for both your sons, and your daughters.

IS WASHINGTON TRYING TO STARVE 60,000 SYRIANS WASHINGTON HAS TRAPPED IN A REFUGEE CAMP?

Russia is the key source of vitally needed humanitarian aid – virtually nothing from the UN, nothing from America and other Western countries, Iran the only regional one supplying it.

“The Rukban refugee camp located on the Syrian-Jordanian border in the so-called [phony] ‘deconfliction zone’ arbitrarily established by the United States around Tanf is facing humanitarian disaster,” Zakharova explained.

“The Americans are using aviation, rocket and artillery systems to prevent Syrian Government forces from entering this zone.”

“According to the UN, the number of refugees in this camp exceeds 60,000. They are threatened with starvation and have no access to fresh water. The risk of epidemics is growing.”

State Department admits Al-Nusra affiliate using chemical weapons in Syria

The US Department of State admitted that militants linked to Al-Nusra Front are carrying out terrorist attacks using chemical weapons in Syria. Russia’s defense ministry says it’s the first admission of its kind.

Anti-Russia 'propaganda' group urges reporter to drop story on CIA arming Syrian rebels

A group that claims to be fighting against Russian propaganda and “fake news” is asking a reporter not to pursue information on the CIA arming Syrian rebels. PropOrNot, famous for being an ex-source for the Washington Post, says the story may fall into the wrong hands.

On Thursday, Jason Leopold, a senior investigative reporter at Buzzfeed, tweeted that he had filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the CIA for documents related to the US arming Syrian rebels.

PropOrNot beseeched him to drop its case in a tweet.

IDF attacks Syrian army post in retaliation for errant rocket

The IDF attacked a Syrian army post on the outskirts of Quneitra on Thursday afternoon in retaliation for an errant rocket that landed in Israel.

According to reports in Sham FM radio, which is affiliated with the Syrian regime, and the Lebanese news site Elnashra, no one was hurt in the IDF attack.

The rocket, which is believed to be "spillover" from the fighting raging across the border, landed in an open area in the northern Golan Heights. No one was hurt and no damage was reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: Israel will do anything in its power to generate a reaction from Bashar Al Assad's military; President Al Assad, please do not give Israel the satisfaction of doing this, and creating a justification for war.

And Russia's President Putin; please try to talk some horse sense into Netanyahu, and remind him that Russia is in Syria at the behest of the Syrian government.

SYRIA WAR REPORT – OCTOBER 19, 2017: U.S. BLAMES ASSAD FOR ‘HINDERING’ ITS ANTI-ISIS EFFORTS

On October 18, the Republican Guard’s Gen Issam Zahreddine was killed in an IED explosion during the operation against ISIS in Saqr Island northeast of Deir Ezzor city. Zahreddine was one of the most prominent Syrian generals and a hero of the battle for Deir Ezzor. He had been leading government troops defending the city from ISIS terrorists over the past years. Under his command, local government troops kept control over the military airbase and a part of the urban area until the unblocking force reached the city and broke the ISIS siege in September 2017.

On the same day, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee accused the Syrian-Iranian-Russian alliance of hindering efforts of the US-led coalition against ISIS during the battle for Raqqa city.

U.S. Pushes For Quick UN Vote On Syrian Gas-Attack Inspections, Defying Russia

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on October 18 that she was circulating a resolution that would extend by another year the work of the Joint Investigative Mechanism (JIM), and she called for a vote on the extension before a scheduled October 26 report by the group on who is responsible for an April 4 sarin-gas attack on Khan Sheikhun that killed nearly 90 people.

Haley said that "there's overwhelming support" on the council for her proposed extension of the JIM's inspection mandate, which expires in mid-November, but she expects Russia to object to any rushed vote.

Russian Ambassador Mikhail Ulyanov, who heads the country's delegation to the UN General Assembly's disarmament committee, said last week that Russia wanted to wait to see the report on the Khan Sheikhun attack before deciding whether to extend the inspectors' mandate.

How Netanyahu Pulls Trump’s Strings

Over the summer, Trump listened to advice about a possible major overhaul of U.S. foreign policy that would have checked Israeli/Saudi regional ambitions, opened diplomatic doors to Iran, and addressed the Korean crisis by brokering negotiations between the North and the South over some form of loose confederation.

There was even the possibility of a Nixon-goes-to-China moment with tough-guy Trump meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the two countries restoring diplomatic ties, a process that could have given U.S. companies a better chance to compete in the Iranian market.

Those proposed moves had the advantage of reducing international tensions, saving the U.S. government money on future military adventures, and freeing U.S. corporations from the tangle of economic sanctions – exactly the “America First” strategy that Trump had promised his working-class base.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The level of absolute betrayal that I, and much of his base, felt at President Trump's martial rantings at the UN, threatening both North Korea and Iran with war and extinction, is so intense as to be absolutely unconveyable.

So I am hoping that some folks in the White House, Pentagon, State Department and Congress are asking themselves, quite seriously: is the US government actually prepared to go to war with both Iran and Russia, egged on by the Israeli cheerleaded in chief Netanyahu, when it is a dead moral certainty that the costs will be borne only in American blood, and with American money?!?

I would hope that a measured, collective answer to that question is, HELL, NO!!

But then again, I do not know what kind of Svengali hold Netanyahu has over President Trump, in terms of intel or background to which the American public is not privy.

Unfortunately, just because an action on the part of the US government could be the most ham-fistely, pig-headedly stupid thing it could do, is no guarantee that it will not do it.

And do take note; there have been absolutely no missile tests by North Korea over this last week of intense military exercises between South Korea and the US military off the Korean peninsula. Even though North Korea's Ambassador to the UN made the following statement on 16 October "Nuclear War May Break Out at Any Moment, these exercises are due to end tomorrow, and yet North Korea has not carried out its threats.

38north.org, an organisation under the auspices of John Hopins University, which studies North Korean actions by analyzing satellite imagery, has made no mentions of any movements of missiles to their testing site as of yesterday, 18 October, and this is my "canary in the coal mine" resource when it comes to North Korean military activity.

I doubt that this will ever happen in my lifetime, but what this country desperately needs right now, is a Department of Peace, to counter the warmongers in our government, and create options for resolving this country's geopolitical issues through intelligent, moral, hard-won negotiations, rather than through war.

Benjamin Netanyahu: 'Israel will not allow' Iranian bases in Syria

Israel says it "will not allow" Iran to build up a long-term military position on its borders, according to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu delivered the warning to Russia, which has been Iran's partner in backing Syrian President Bashar Assad, during a meeting in Tel Aviv on Tuesday. The talks occurred as coalition forces are nearly finished liberating the Islamic State's capital of Raqqa as key world powers try to secure long-term strategic gains out of the Syrian civil war.

"Iran is attempting to establish itself militarily in Syria," Netanyahu tweeted Tuesday after a meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. "I told [Shoigu]: Iran needs to understand that Israel will not allow this."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel will do anything it can to start an all out war against Syria and Iran, with the US government sleepwalking into such a war before it realizes what has happened, and that is precisely what Netanyahu wants to engineer, with these moves.

Such a war could well see the US military fighting the Russian military in Syria; and if Israel and the US go into Iran, you will most probably see Russia fighting against US forces here as well.

I have felt that we are on the keening edge of either a total financial breakdown, or world war for quite some time; I don't know which will be first, but the current geopolitical and financial situations cannot stand as they are for much longer.

SYRIA WAR REPORT – OCTOBER 18, 2017: GOVERNMENT FORCES CROSS EUPHRATES, PUSH TOWARD OMAR OIL FIELDS

The Kurdish-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), supported by the US-led coalition’s airpower, artillery and special operations forces, established a full control over the city of Raqqah following a series of successful advances in al-Naim and al-Dallah roundabouts, the national hospital, the municipal stadium as well as other points in the city center.

According to pro-SDF sources, up to 40 ISIS members were killed and 37 terrorists surrendered to the SDF in the final day of the operation.
Following the final push in Raqqah, a US Department of State spokesperson announced that the US “will assist and take, essentially, the lead in bringing back the water, electricity and all of that.”

“The United States and our allies have prepared for next steps and will continue to work with partners to provide humanitarian assistance to those in need and support the stabilization efforts in Raqqa and other liberated areas,” Heather Nauert told journalists.

ISRAEL IS HIDING THAT ITS STATE-OF-ART F-35 WARPLANE WAS HIT BY SYRIAN S-200 MISSILE – REPORTS

According to the available information, the Syrian Defense Forces used a S-200 missile against the Israeli warplane. This Soviet-made missile is the most advanced long range anti-aircraft system opearated by the Syrian military. Even in this case, it’s old-fashioned in terms of the modern warfare.

Despite this, the Syrian Defense Ministry said in its statement that government forces responded to the violation of the airspace and “directly hit one of the jets, forcing [Israeli aircraft] to retreat.” This statement contradicts to the Israeli claim that “no hit” was confirmed.

Few hours after the missile incident with Syria, the Israeli media reported that the Israeli Air Force’s F-35 stealth multirole fighter went unserviceable as a result of an alleged bird collision during a training flight.

ISRAELI FIGHTER JETS LAUNCH AIR STRIKE ON SYRIAN AIR DEFENSE BATTERY NEAR DAMASCUS

After years of undermining the regime of Syrian leader Bashar al Assad, an effort that has seen Israel countenance ISIS training camps near its borders and launch recurring missile strikes on Syrian territory and its army bases while threatening to bomb Assad's palace, the simmering conflict between the two nations broke out into the open once again overnight.

The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed that Israeli Air Force fighters conducted a missile strike against a Syrian base after a missile was fired at Israeli jets on a routine aerial reconnaissance mission in Lebanese airspace, Russia's news agency Sputnik reports. No people were in injured, and the Israeli jets returned safely, but not before attacking an anti-aircraft battery east of the Syrian capital of Damascus. As usual, The IDF blamed the Syrian government for the incident, however, presenting no proof to support the claim. Damascus has yet to comment on the situation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The IDF most probably cannot present "proof" because there is none.

And remember that the attack happened over Lebanese air space; not Syrian air space.

Turkey’s latest intervention in the Syria conflict appears to reflect a 180-degree shift in its policy of backing Al Qaeda-linked takfiris and a range of largely fundamentalist insurgents, as well as the Saudi-sponsored Syrian opposition with the aim of bringing down President Bashar Assad.

Last weekend, Turkish tanks, armoured vehicles and troops gathered in the western sector of the border between Turkey and Syria and exchanged fire with Al Qaeda’s Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham, a coalition headed by Jabhat Fatah Al Sham (formerly Jabhat Al Nusra).

Ankara is deploying Syrian insurgents belonging to the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA), allegedly, to defeat Jabhat and its allies who refused to sign onto the plan, agreed by Russia, Iran and Turkey, to impose a ceasefire or establish a “de-escalation zone” in Syria’s northwestern Idlib province, dominated by Jabhat.

The House of Saud bows to the House of Putin – Pepe Escobar

Saudi Arabia pivots to Russia, the new sheriff in town.

What a difference a year – an eternity in geopolitics – makes. No one could see this coming; the ideological matrix of all strands of Salafi-jihadi terror – which Russia fights no holds barred, from ISIS/Daesh to the Caucasus Emirate – beating a path to the Kremlin and about to embrace Russia as a strategic ally.

The House of Saud was horrified by Russia’s successful campaign to prevent regime change in Syria. Moscow was solidifying its alliance with Tehran. Hawks in the Obama administration were imposing on Saudi Arabia a strategy of keeping oil prices down to hurt the Russian economy.
