The Syria dictator Bashar al-Assad has escaped to a bunker at Khmeimim base, as the US has escalated its threats to carry out military strikes against his regime forces' posts and positions throughout the country.

This was revealed when Assad received Khamenei's aide Ali Akbar Velayatiroom in Khmeimim air base in a room that has neither windows nor drapes with no Syrian officials all are Iranians, according to footage obtained by The Baghdad Post.


Analysts asserted that Syrian affairs are currently run by Russian and Iranians, as Assad is prohibited to make any communications to prevent revealing his location.

Earlier, The Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad was spotted departing the presidential palace in Damascus, according to well informed sources.


The sources asserted that he was accompanied by Russian military units to protect him.

Hezbollah terrorists have also evacuated their positions nearby Tiyas Military Airbase in Homs, Syria, anticipating an imminent  US attack.

This comes amid reports that the US has mobilized its forces in preparation to strike Assad forces in Syria.

The US Navy confirmed that about 6,500 sailors assigned to the Harry S. Truman Carrier Strike Group that will depart Norfolk on Wednesday.

The statement said the carrier departed for a regularly scheduled deployment to Europe and the Middle East, according to the Navy.

The aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman is the lead ship of the strike group, which also includes the guided-missile cruiser USS Normandy and the guided-missile destroyers of Destroyer Squadron 28: USS Arleigh Burke, USS Bulkeley, USS Forrest Sherman and USS Farragut, according to the Military website.

The German frigate FGS Heschen also will accompany the strike group for the first part of its deployment.

The deployment raises the questions about a possible US-European joint attack against the regime of Bashar al-Assad over the latest gas attack on civilians in Douma, Syria.

The gas attack killed about 70 civilians, mostly women and children. More than 1000 others were injured.

The World Health Organisation condemned the chemical weapons attack in Douma, Syria last weekend, in which it said an estimated 500 patients went to health facilities with “signs and symptoms consistent with exposure to toxic chemicals”.

 “WHO demands immediate unhindered access to the area to provide care to those affected, to assess the health impacts, and to deliver a comprehensive public health response,” Peter Salama, WHO deputy director-general for emergency preparedness and response, said in a statement issued in Geneva.

UN aid agencies do not have access to most of the enclave of eastern Ghouta, including Douma, where the alleged attack occurred. The Syrian government has denied responsibility.

France's President Emmanuel Macron says he has "proof" that the Syrian government attacked the town of Douma with chemical weapons last weekend.

He said he would decide "in due course" whether to respond with air strikes.
President Donald Trump vowed "Animal Assad" would pay "a big price" for the attack.
