Terrorists in Syria's Idleb province complain about "mysterious assassinations" within their ranks

Social networking sites, associated with the Erdogan-regime backed terrorist groups operating in the northwestern Syrian province of Idleb, have reported on continuation of a series of “mysterious assassinations” taking place in the countryside of Idleb province. Most recently, bodies of two members of Jaysh Al Izza, a FSA-linked terrorist group, were discovered in the vicinity of the town of Khan Sheikhoun. The sites also pointed to the sharp increase of killings and acts of robbery in the countryside of Idleb province, noting that gunmen from other groups frequently target FSA and its allies, as well as civilians, often with the purpose of theft, killing or intimidation. So far, no action seems to have been taken as regards the matter. On the 12th of August, 7 assets of the notorious “White Helmets” group were found dead in the town of Sarmin in Idleb province. Shortly afterwards, the worldwide web became surrounded with photos of their dead bodies lying in a pool of blood.

Defense Ministry rejects claims of war games threat to western neighbors

The Russian deputy defense minister has described the upcoming Zapad-2017 military exercises as purely defensive and blasted as a “myth” any allegations that they could be used as a basis to invade neighboring countries.

“I would like to emphasize that apart from its anti-terrorist components, the Zapad-2017 (West-2017) exercise is of a purely defensive character,” Lieutenant-General Aleksandr Fomin told reporters on Tuesday.

“For several months major mass media outlets around the world have been disturbing the public with myths about the Russian military threat. Politicians followed suit. They invent the most unbelievable ways for the events to develop, some even allege that Zapad-2017 could become a launchpad for a future attack with subsequent occupation of Lithuania, Poland or Ukraine. None of these paradoxical theories has anything to do with reality, as has been repeatedly stated by Russian and Belarusian officials,” Fomin said.

Ron Paul: Will Congress and Trump Declare War on WikiLeaks?

The Senate Intelligence Committee recently passed its Intelligence Authorization Act for 2018 that contains a chilling attack on the First Amendment. Section 623 of the act expresses the “sense of Congress” that WikiLeaks resembles a “non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such.” This language is designed to delegitimize WikiLeaks, encourage the federal government to spy on individuals working with WikiLeaks, and block access to WikiLeaks’ website. This provision could even justify sending US forces abroad to arrest WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange or other WikiLeaks personnel.

Russian military vehicles sighted in Kurdish-held city in northern Syria, assumed to prevent Turkish attack

Russian military vehicles have been sighted in the Kurdish-held city of Tal Rifaat in the northern Aleppo countryside yesterday. It was reported by local sources on the ground that a Russian MP was also sighted, but this could not be verified by Fort Russ News at this time. With Turkey's threat to storm the city and root out the Kurdish YPG, the Syrian branch of the Kurdistan Workers Party that Ankara recognizes as a terrorist group, it is assumed that the deployment of the Russian Military Police is to prevent such an event from occuring. Fort Russ will continue to report on any breaking developments.

US ‘should & will’ get along with Russia – Trump

President Donald Trump has expressed confidence that the world's two nuclear superpowers would “get along” and that US relations with Russia will eventually improve from their record low, to if not “great,” then at the very least, “good.”

“I hope that we do have good relations with Russia. I say it loud and clear, I’ve been saying it for years: I think it’s a good thing if we have great relationships, or at least good relationships with Russia,” the US president said during a joint news conference with his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto.

“It’s a big country, it’s a nuclear country, it’s a country that we should get along with, and I think we will eventually get along with Russia,” Trump added.

US holds 2nd test of B61-12 nuclear bombs

The US National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has announced the successful flight test of B61-12 gravity nuclear bombs in Nevada. It comes as US lawmakers reportedly push for a withdrawal from a landmark nuclear treaty with Russia.

The second qualification flight test for the nuclear weapon was carried out by the NNSA and the US Air Force, with the first one having been successfully conducted in March.

The first test drew criticism, including from Brian Becker, director of the anti-war ANSWER coalition, who told RT: "In order to placate his critics, in the media and in politics, Trump has given a blank check to his generals. So they are having a grand time right now, and they are testing all the weapons they've been wanting to test, but not been able to."

"We highly appreciate the efforts of Russia and Egypt on convincing the delegations that it is important to be present there in a positive way. But coordination between the opposition groups will take certain time." Al Nahyan also noted the importance of efforts made by UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura to achieve the opposition’s unity. "We believe this should be part of ensuring success at talks in Geneva and Astana," he said.

Nezavisimaya Gazeta: US threatens Russia with total isolation

Washington is seriously considering plans of changing Russia's position on Ukraine and delivering lethal arms to Kiev, United States Special Representative on Ukraine Kurt Volker has told the Financial Times, also warning that Moscow would face full isolation. US-Russian relations will be "crippled" unless a solution is found on Ukraine, he cautioned... President of the Institute for Strategic Assessments Alexander Konovalov told the newspaper that the US is ready to provide Ukraine with efficient weapons for anti-tank defense. "If Kiev receives Javelin portable systems, this may significantly change the balance of power on the battlefield." As for Russia’s isolation that Volker predicts, Konovalov believes that it is inevitable. "We find ourselves in a strange group along with North Korea, Iran and Venezuela, and this is not a situation that should be welcomed," the expert said, warning that new sanctions would roll back years of Russia’s development gains.
