Syria. The war in Syria, the operation of the Russian Air Force. News of the confrontation between Igil (Dasha) and the Syrian conflict.

Residents of Idlib reported on the upcoming provocation of militants against Russia.

Residents of the province of Idlib reported that militants are preparing a provocation using production videos, the Center for Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Syria (CPAP) said.

The initiator, according to the CPAF, was the “Jebhat an Nusra” grouping *, the relevant information was relayed to the Russian military by phone.

According to local residents, last Friday the operators of one Middle East news agency came to the province.

“This group together with the terrorists “Djebhat an Nusra” conducted shooting shootings about the evacuation of civilians to the Alhelal al-Ahmar hospital by militants and the active “restoration” of terrorists of civilian infrastructure allegedly destroyed as a result of Russian and Syrian air strikes, – specified in the message.

It is planned to show houses demolished by extremists during clashes with other terrorist groups as “confirmatory personnel”.

According to the addressees, the production shots are promulgated in Arabic and Western information resources. They will be the reason for “regular accusations against Russia,” the report says.

Thanks to the media resonance, the militants also hope to finance the armed formations through Western non-governmental organizations operating in Idlib province, the CPAF noted.

Europe and the United States will not participate in the restoration of Syria, said the country’s President Bashar Assad in an interview with the program.

The head of state called the words of some politicians that Damascus will not be helped while the current government is in power, “the best statements of the West during the entire war in Syria”.

He stressed that he does not intend to involve Europe and the United States in the reconstruction projects.

“We just will not let them do it. Will they come with money or not? They offer a loan, a donation or grants, anything – we do not need the West. The West is far from the concept of “honesty”: they do not give, they only take “, – explained the president.

According to the Syrian leader, the country will rely only on its own forces, in difficult situations – to help friends. “Perhaps the restoration of Syria will take more time, but nevertheless there is no cause for concern,” he said in an interview.

At the same time, he noted that many European companies are trying to establish activities in the SAR, but they are guided solely by the desire to earn. Such expansion is supported by the governments of the EU countries, but so far it has not been advertised, Asad added.

“When it comes to rebuilding the country after the war – you say, 400 billion plus or minus it’s about – it’s a whole market, it’s an entire economy, it’s an investment,” he said.

In April, it was reported that the Syrian government will give preferences to Russian companies that will participate in the restoration of infrastructure. According to experts, the reconstruction of the country’s economic complex can take up to 15 years.

11 settlements in the south of Syria voluntarily passed under the control of the Syrian authorities after repelling the offensive of the terrorist group “An-Nusra”, the press service of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Syria reports.

“In the course of the past 24 hours, after the massive offensive of the Jebhat an-Nusra units in the southern zone of de-escalation of the formation of the Syrian Free Army (SSA), which controlled the settlements of Khabab, Khirbat al-Msap, Jerfi, Assem, Sheikh-Garbiy, Sheikh- Sharkey, El Shumariy, Hirbat-az-Zababir Deir-Dama, Al-Shiyah and Jadal, voluntarily went over to the side of government troops,” the report said.

It is noted that by the evening of Saturday 11 settlements of the Southern zone of de-escalation, which were under the control of the SSA, were completely controlled by Damascus. The SSA units that were operating there joined the units of government troops to conduct joint operations against the terrorists of the ISIS and “Dzhibhat an Nusra” groups.

The report adds that the Russian Center for Reconciliation of Warring Parties organized the delivery of humanitarian aid and essentials to civilians in the liberated areas in southern Syria.

Syrian President Bashar Assad believes that the militants of the terrorist groups “Islamic State” and “Djebhat An Nusra” will return to the creation of the caliphate thanks to the support of Western countries.

“This is a religious threat with political support. This does not happen spontaneously. They will return, because the Western forces use them again and again, but under different names, “Assad said in an interview with the program” Results of the Week with Irada Zeynalova “on NTV.

As Assad noted, the militants were in Afghanistan thirty years ago, and former US President Ronald Reagan called them “a sacred warrior “rather than terrorists:” Now they are called terrorists, but they are used by them. Maybe in ten years they will be used elsewhere, under a different name, it’s just a rebranding. It is a tool of the West. You feel the threat – that’s right, “he added. The president of the SAR added that Russia, while protecting the Syrians from terrorists, also protects the Russians on its territory. Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Major-General Igor Konashenkov, stated that the expansion of the terrorist group Islamic state “in Syria became possible due to the criminal inaction of the United States and the so-called” international coalition “
