British Special Forces Inside Syria Attacking Assad Compound!
British special forces have crossed into Syria from Turkey some 10 km. These elite forces are fighting the Republican Guards compound guarding Assad's palace on Mount Qaisoun overlooking Damascus. Ironically, the NATO intervention began just as President Putin ended his trip to Israel and he stressed non-intervention in Syria. Arab TV stations have been interviewing Assad's forces that seem to confirm this latest turn of events. As talked awhile ago by Turkey, the British forces are establishing the first safe zone along the Syrian-Turkish border. Once this is accomplished, NATO will wait for whatever response occurs from Syria, Iran, or Hezbollah. Will rockets start flying into Israel? Highly likely.
Russia's response will be certainly on the side of Syria. Iran will no doubt help Syria even more. It is highly likely Israel knew about this planning. Some may wonder if this IS the response to the downing of the two Turkish aircraft recently, or, did Syria's belligerence simply quicken the plan. Meanwhile, Turkey has withdrawn its diplomats from Damascus.
The question also begs, what happens should the British fail to oust Assad? This is a very real possibility. Are they trying to assassinate him? Create more desertions (another 33 Syrian soldiers defected today)?
The war in Syria just took a drastic turn into more chaos.
