Activists: More Than 200 Syrians Massacred

Es increíble, pero la mortandad en Siria no tiene final y cada día se descubren nuevos hechos de violencia de las Fuerzas Armadas gubernamentales contra su pueblo. Según informa la Agencia Reuters, más de 200 sirios, la mayoría civiles, fueron asesinados en una aldea en la región rebelde de Hama, cuando fue bombardeado por helicópteros artillados y tanques, y luego asaltado por milicianos que llevaron a cabo los asesinatos al estilo ejecución, según reportaron activistas de la oposición.


Si se confirma esta noticia, que ya ha sido difundida por varios medios, sería el peor incidente de violencia en los 16 meses de conflicto en el que los rebeldes están luchando para derrocar al presidente Bashar al-Assad, y la diplomacia haciendo esfuerzos para detener el derramamiento de sangre, que ha sido bloqueado a empujones por varias potencias mundiales.

Israel recomienda a prepararse para un ataque con misiles desde Siria

A medida que el ritmo de la masacre ya impensable en Siria se acelera aún más, fuentes militares occidentales advirtieron hoy sábado 14 de julio, que no sólo Israel, sino otros objetivos estratégicos en Oriente Medio considerados enemigos de Bashar al- Assad, deben prepararse para un posible ataque de misiles Tierra-Aire.

 Los ataques comenzarían con ojivas convencionales, pero a medida que el régimen sirio sea golpeado y el gobernante asediado podría armar a la siguiente ronda de misiles de su enorme reserva de gas mostaza, por no hablar de veneno sarín y de cianuro.

Syria Chemical Weapons Arsenal: Stockpile of Chemical Weapons Reportedly Moved Out Of Storage

Siria tiene armas de destrucción masivaconfirmado el 13 de julio de 2012 vía La Radio Israel

Como parte de su maniobra de guerra en curso, Siria el día jueves, 12 de julio, realizo el lanzamiento de avanzados misiles Scud D balísticos capaces de transportar armas químicas y gas nervioso – un claro mensaje de Bashar al Assad, que las armas de destrucción masiva están en juego para salvar su régimen.

Los funcionarios estadounidenses, alarmados por el movimiento y almacenamiento del inmenso arsenal de agente nervioso sarín, gas mostaza y el cianuro, advirtió que podría escalar el conflicto sirio y ampliarlo a otras partes de la región.

“Esto podría sentar el precedente de armas de destrucción masiva el mayor de la zona en Medio Oriente y que pueda ser utilizado sin Nuestra supervisión”, dijo un funcionario de EE.UU “Esto es muy peligroso para nuestra seguridad nacional”. La administración Obama ha comenzado a celebrar reuniones de información clasificada acerca de la nueva inteligencia, según informes militares llegados al despacho de La Radio Israel11

New Annan proposal puts the Syrian crisis in Iranian and Russian hands

Iran thwarts Syrian “contact group” plan over US conditions for nuclear talks

Including: Chemical warfare feared raising its head in the Syrian civil war

Por: Franco D´Orazio P.

Tal y como lo expresara el presidente sirio Bashar, hijo de Hafez al-Assad, durante su intervención en el Parlamento nacional1 en la sesión realizada el pasado domingo 3 de junio en la ciudad capital, Damasco, donde afirmó: “…que él se ve a sí mismo como un cirujano que amputa una parte del cuerpo del país para preservar la otra”… pues por lo visto a la fecha, en Siria no quedarán extremidades sanas.

Esta semana fueron denunciadas nuevas masacres por pobladores de Hama, específicamente en la villa Mazraat al-Qubeir, con más de una centena de personas fallecidas incluidas un par de docenas de mujeres y otras tanto de niños 2… Y mas grave aún, hace tres días fuentes rebeldes denunciaron que los aviones de la fuerza aérea siria habían diseminado sustancias tóxicas en las poblaciones de Deraa, Hama e Idlib; después de lo cual la gente allí quedó inconsciente.

La Secretaria de Estado de los EE.UU, señora Hillary Clinton, declaró en relación a ese evento que “esa nueva matanza era inadmisible”. Inclusive, el Vice ministro israelí para el Desarrollo del Neguev y la Galilea, señor Ayoub Kara 3, dijo a Radio Israel ayer sábado que ha visto las fotos que “no dejan dudas” de que durante la represión de la oposición, las fuerzas de Assad utilizaron Armas Químicas contra “los hombres de Siria, mujeres y niños”. Kara también dijo que los médicos israelíes están tratando a los heridos en la frontera entre Siria y Turquía y están listos para enviar más asistencia médica o incluso, evacuar algunas víctimas a Israel.

No hubo confirmaciones de las declaraciones del vice ministro por parte de cualquier otro funcionario; sin embargo, al respecto la prensa rusa de hoy 4,5 culpa a los rebeldes sirios de poseer armas químicas pues según ellos, tal armamento no convencional de destrucción masiva procede de Libia… es decir, insinúan que miembros de Al Qaeda se apoderaron de esas armas junto con el parque que poseía el coronel Gadafi y lo trasladaron a Siria para aderezar allí la primavera árabe en pleno desarrollo… todo ello para lavarle la cara al señor al-Assad y con él, distanciar de cualquier responsabilidad al Kremlin y a su nuevo inquilino de estos lamentables hechos.

Como inciso, el padre del actual presidente, el señor Hafez, también fue criticado amargamente en su tiempo por la comunidad internacional dadas las grandes represiones ensayadas contra su propio pueblo, en particular, por haber ordenado la masacre de 1982 en la misma región de Hama, que fue descrita entonces como “el acto más mortífero ejecutado por gobierno árabe alguno en contra de personas del Medio Oriente en la era moderna”, así como fue responsabilizado de otras masacres como la primera en la misma Hama en abril de 1981, la de la prisión de Tadmor, el sitio de Alepo, y la masacre de Tel al-Zaatar, entre otras. A ese primer gobierno de la familia al-Assad, de casi treinta años de duración, se le endosan unas veinte mil muertes violentas… y según parece, pues ¡de tal palo, tal astilla!

Y ahora resulta que el señor Kofi Annan, enviado especial de las Naciones Unidas y la Liga árabe en ese convulsionado país, reconoció públicamente en ese podio lo que el mundo entero sabe desde hace semanas… que ha fracasado el plan de paz propuesto para esa sufrida nación de frágiles instituciones políticas y/o públicas. Y en función de ese fracaso, Annan sugiere un nuevo plan variando ligeramente su diseño anterior, y colocando ahora el problema de Siria, exclusivamente, en manos rusas e iraníes… El meollo de la nueva propuesta, según fuentes de inteligencia, es la creación de un “grupo de contacto” para el manejo de lo que denominan la papa caliente siria, que estará compuesto por los cinco miembros permanentes del Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU: EE.UU, el Reino Unido, Francia, Rusia y China… además de Irán, Turquía, Arabia Saudita y Qatar.

Y para variar, el nuevo plan ignora por completo la existencia de su vecino más afectado… Israel.

Washington esperaba, de acuerdo a nuestras fuentes, que ése gesto hacia Moscú le daría un fuerte incentivo a las negociaciones de la próxima ronda del Grupo P5+1 con Irán, pactadas para el próximo 13 de junio. Sin embargo, a pesar de la propuesta de Annan, Teherán se negó a unirse al grupo por interpretar que ello significaría condicionar su programa nuclear… eso ocurrió después que la Secretaria de Estado de los  EE.UU, la señora Clinton, dijo en Estambul que Irán debería llegar a las conversaciones nucleares en Moscú “lista para dar pasos concretos” para frenar el enriquecimiento de uranio al 20 por ciento de pureza… De tal manera que la nueva iniciativa de reflotar la paz en Siria fracaso antes de zarpar.

:

Un reporte de última hora10 indica que Teherán también acusó, hoy domingo 10 de junio, a los rebeldes sirios de armarse con armas químicas procedentes de Libia… Al igual que lo hizo Rusia más temprano. Ese informe alarmó a las capitales Occidentales e Israel ante los temores de que Teherán y Damasco estaban preparando el terreno para que el régimen de al-Assad recurra a la Guerra Química para aplastar definitivamente a sus enemigos.

Fuentes militares Occidentales que miran ese punto de inflamación Siria con cautela, advierten que el hecho de que ambas partes del conflicto hablen abiertamente de una Guerra Química da fe de seriamente este ocurriendo. Según fuentes de Washington, si esto realmente se está llevando a cabo, pues Europa, Riad y Jerusalén propondrán la intervención militar inmediata en Siria, a lo cual el presidente de los EE.UU, Barack Obama, ya no podrá oponerse.

Así que mientras los Diplomáticos divagan con sus propuestas teóricas, los acontecimientos reales en Siria se siguen desarrollando en dos frentes: Primero, la lucha interna, encarnizada, sigue el rumbo del genocidio masivo por la utilización de armas no convencionales de destrucción masiva, de naturaleza química, que ya superó los estándares de una guerra civil… si es que existe alguno. Y en segundo lugar los ejecutivos de las Naciones Unidas siguen sin entender, aparentemente, que la gran conflagración pendiente en el oriente medio pasa por esa solución primaveral.

8. New Annan proposal puts the Syrian crisis in Iranian and Russian hands

Israel remains dormant despite the serious consequences to its strategic and security situation threatened by the new proposal the UN-Arab League envoy for Syria Kofi Annan is to present to the UN Thursday, June 7, for saving his peace plan. The nub of his proposal, Intelligencesources disclose, is the creation of a “contact group” for handling the hot Syrian potato. It is to be composed of the five permanent Security Council members (US, UK, France, Russia and China) plus Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

The proposal has won the blessing of the Obama administration, meaning its consent to letting the two powers that will dominate the contact group, Russia and Iran, determine the course and outcome of the Syrian crisis.

Washington believes that only they have the clout in the Syrian army for bringing about Bashar Assad’s removal and his replacement in Damascus by a provisional military regime.

Washington also hopes, according to our sources, that this gesture will give Moscow a strong incentive to lean hard on Tehran for concessions at the next round of its talk with the six world powers on June 13. Neither Iran nor Moscow have promised the US anything of the sort, but the administration hopes Iran will start being forthcoming on its nuclear program after being permitted to assume a central role in Damascus.

There is less optimism outside administration circles and in Israel. They expect from Tehran nothing more at the next round of talks than token nuclear concessions, and none at all toward curtailing its work on a nuclear weapon.

However the Obama administration appears to have opted for this course, even though it is the first time since the outbreak of the Arab Revolt in December 2010 that the United States is willing to let go of a major Middle East crisis and allow its foremost Middle East rivals, Moscow and Tehran, to take charge. Correspondent reported exclusively on May 31, that President Barack Obama had proposed to President Vladimir Putin the creation of a large force of 5,000 international monitors for Syria, most of them Russians, to safeguard Assad’s stock of biological and chemical weapons against falling into the hands of al Qaeda or Syrian rebels. This team consisting of thousands of Russian troops would be the operational arm of the future “contact group.”

As far as Israel is concerned, the plan has disastrous connotations. Instead of containing the spread of hostile Iranian influence in the region, as Obama promised Israel, he is opening for the door for Iran to extend its influence squarely in the countries neighboring on – and still at war with – Israel, while at the same time moving back from a focused effort to draw the sting of Iran’s nuclear bomb program.

Israel’s political and security tacticians never took into account that a consequence of the Syrian revolt would be the establishment of full-blown Iranian sway over.

9. Iran thwarts Syrian “contact group” plan over US conditions for nuclear talks

Iran stalled the US Secretary and UN-Arab League Envoy Kofi Annan’s plan to present the world body’s special session Thursday, June 7, with a plan for a contract group based on five permanent Security Council members and Iran to handle the Syrian impasse. Tehran refused to join the group as long as it faces nuclear conditions, after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in Istanbul that Iran must come to the nuclear talks in Moscow “ready to take concrete steps” to curb its enrichment of uranium to 20 percent purity.

Discussion of the plan was therefore abandoned in the hall and confined to UN corridors. By forcing the pace at the special general assembly crisis session, Tehran once again demonstrated its refusal to play ball with the international community until its major power status in the Middle East is recognized.

Iranian sources have insisted in recent days that the six power talks with Iran were not just about its nuclear program but affected a wider spectrum, because the nuclear issue could be settled at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. Tehran has made it clear that the continuation of nuclear diplomacy is contingent on the general recognition of Iran’s major power status.

The situation in Syria meanwhile continues to deteriorate disastrously amid conflicting claims about another massacre at the Hama village of Mazraat al-Qubeir: Opposition activists have disseminated video footage illustrating the slaughter of up to 70 people, including women and children, by Assad’s security forces and militiamen less than two weeks after the Houla massacre. This is denied by official sources in Damascus who say no more than nine people died at the hands of “terrorists.”

No independent testimony was available on the episode from the UN monitors, who set out for the Hama village. The UN Secretary said they turned back after they were fired on by small arms and would set out again Friday.

Kofi Annan warned that if nothing changes in Syria, the future holds all-out civil war. His words attested to the helplessness of the world body to put a stop of the bloodshed in Syria, combined with the Obama administration’s refusal to intervene in the crisis in the expectation that Russia and Iran would step up. That expectation has faded.

Sources reported Wednesday, June 6: Israel remains dormant despite the serious consequences to its strategic and security situation threatened by the new proposal the UN-Arab League envoy for Syria Kofi Annan is to present to the UN Thursday, June 7, for saving his peace plan. The nub of his proposal, intelligence sources disclose, is the creation of a “contact group” for handling the hot Syrian potato.

Israel’s political and security tacticians never took into account that a consequence of the Syrian revolt would be the establishment of full-blown Iranian sway over Damascus in partnership with Russia. Indeed, for 15 months, they insisted that the Syrian uprising was proof of America’s success in breaking up the dangerous Tehran-Damascus-Hizballah axis.

10. Chemical warfare feared raising its head in the Syrian civil war… Special Report June 10, 2012, 7:50 AM (GMT+02:00)

Tehran pumped out a report Early Sunday June 10 accusing Syrian rebels of arming themselves with chemical weapons originating in Libya and acquiring training in their use from an unknown source in their use. The report sent shudders of alarm through Western capitals and Israel and fears that Tehran and Damascus were preparing the ground for the Assad regime to resort to chemical warfare to finally crush its foes.

Iran claimed, “Any report released on the Syrian Army’s alleged use of the chemical weapons is meant to pave the ground for the terrorists to use these weapons against the people and accuse the Syrian army and government of that crime.”

Three days earlier, on June 7, Syrian rebel sources charged that the Syrian air force planes had dropped poisonous substances over Deraa, Hama and Idlib which knocked people unconscious. This later proved unfounded.

Western military sources watching Syria’s flashpoint areas warn that the fact that both sides of the conflict are now talking openly about chemical warfare attests to their seriously getting ready for this deadly escalation – and the ultimate game-changer. If they indeed go through with it, say sources Washington, European capitals, Riyadh and Jerusalem, US President Barack Obama cannot possibly stick to his refusal to take military steps in Syria and will have to step in with limited force to stop the escalating horror.

In that case, the US would almost certainly be joined by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and possibly other Arab nations.

Official spokesmen in the West, Moscow and the UN are still warning that Syria is on the verge of civil war, refusing to admit thata sectarian war which they failed to avert is already fully fledged – certainly between Sunni Muslims and Assad’s Allawite minority.

The Christians are also involved because some members of that community occupy high-ranking positions in the military command. Defense minister Dawoud Rajiha, who manages government action against the revolt, is a Christian.

The conflict is no longer clear-cut between the Syrian army and the various armed rebel groups. The al Houla massacre in the last week of May was a tragic turning-point:  Armed groups of Alawites and Sunnis living in the same neighborhoods are now turning on each other. Their battles go largely unreported. One of the most disastrous episodes of this kind erupted last week between Sunni and Alawite neighbors in Latakia. Many parts of southern, eastern and northern Syria had consequently spiraled out of control of military and security forces. Western and Israeli military sources report that regional commanders and the general staff in Damascus have lost track of the violence plaguing those regions and more massacres on the scale of al-Houla and Al Qubeir are feared.

The rebel Syrian National Council’s choice of a Kurdish exile Abdel Basset Sayda Saturday as its new head is a bad omen: More than a step toward resolving the differences among the various factions and unifying ranks, the appointment brings the Kurdish community, one-fifth of the Syrian population, squarely into the revolt. Syrian Kurds have stayed out of it until now.

A major concern for Jerusalem was sparked by recent comments in Iranian Revolutionary Guards publications. Friday and Saturday, the official IRGC mouthpiece Mashregh quoted a warning by Brig. Gen. Massoud Jazaeri that in the event of any Western or Arab force interfering in Syria, Assad’s allies in the resistance “would ensure that aggressors do not survive the conflict. The Zionist regime and the interests of the enemies of Syria are all within range of resistance fire.”

Saturday night, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov underlined Moscow’s hard line on Syria: “Moscow would support the departure of President Bashar al-Assad, but only if Syrians agreed to it,” he stressed. He ruled out outside force and sanctions against the regime and proposed another international conference.

Moscow has now ranged itself solidly behind Assad and the pyramid that keeps him in power – family, Alawites and the top military echelon. Even if the ruler was himself ousted in a coup by his own army, the general who seized power could count on Russian backing.

Syria endured another day of slaughter Saturday with the numbers of dead in double digits and the Red Cross warning that more than a million Syrians are in dire need of aid. The Syrian tragedy is more intractable than ever.
