💥Russian general who oversaw atrocities in Syria led cluster bomb attacks on civilians in Ukraine. CNN identified 11 Smerch rocket strikes on residential #Kharkiv🇺🇦 launched by rocket artillery brigade led by Col.Gen Alexander ZHURAVLYOV in Belgorod🇷🇺—war crimes under int'l law.
CNN traced 11 Smerch rocket attacks on #Kharkiv on Feb. 27-28 to #Russia's 79th Rocket Artillery Brigade. Based in Belgorod, the brigade reports to Western Military District led by Zhuravlyov—the only officer with the authority to order Smerch launches in his district. #WarCrimes
After Zhuravlyov took command in eastern Aleppo in 2016, Russia's military rapidly ramped up its attacks on rebel-held territory using brutal tactics & munitions that defined Russia's intervention in Syria & now Ukraine: besiege, starve, bombard, grind into submission.

#Hitler wurde nicht mit Sanktionen, Drohungen oder Verhandlungen gestoppt. Dass #Putin & Co. ähnlich skrupellos agieren, wissen wir seit 1999, als in Moskau hunderte Zivilisten mit fingierten Anschlägen ermordet wurden. Mit unserer Geschichtsvergessenheit, Selbstbezogenheit, …2

Die ermordeten Zivilisten in #Bucha sind nur eine Spitze des Eisbergs. Die massenhafte Ermordung von Zivilisten, … 3
3 … um Migrationsdruck im Westen zu erzeugen, ist seit 2000 eine Strategie von Putin. #Grosny, #Aleppo, russische Waffenexporte in alle Krisengebiete Afrikas, sind weitere Beispiele, in denen zahllose Zivilisten abgeschlachtet wurden, wir haben dort nur nicht hingesehen … 4

Very concerning news. Marianna, the pregnant girl from #Mariupol, turns out to be one of the refugees that has been taken to #Russia in violation of the evacuation agreement.

There they put her in front of a camera and have her say there was no aerial attack on the hospital.
She is able to admit there was an explosion om the maternity hospital, but remains very vague on what it could have been, leaving room for the interpretation the Ukrainians bombed it themselves, a lie pro-Kremlin actors have pushed from the very start.
They also have her criticizing the AP photographer for taking these pictures of her that went around the world.

I keep seeing heartbreaking comparisons between #Mariupol and #Aleppo. I asked by friend, @ShaarH, who was born and raised in Aleppo, whether it gets better with time. Here's what he said👇🏼💔
"I can’t tell you for sure it gets better, because it really depends on the outcome. In much of Syria, including eastern Aleppo (which was under constant bombing for 4.5 years, first by the Syrian regime, later by Russia AND the Syrian regime), the fighting eventually stopped...
...but only at the cost of virtually all residents being evicted from their homes. For those of us who don’t feel safe to go back to our homes under this regime - the majority of the residents - the end of the fighting was the end of a battle. A battle that we lost.

1. This week’s issue of al-Naba’, which was published last night, took #IS's campaign to legitimise its new leader in a new, quite surprising direction.
2. It was very defensive in tone.

Directly comparing the legacy of #IS's 'caliphs' with that of the Rashidun caliphs, it pushed back on criticism—seemingly from within #IS's own circles—of Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi and played down the strategic significance of his loss.
3. #IS also pushed back on criticism about how long it had taken it to confirm that Abu Ibrahim had been killed and replaced by Abul Hasan.

Per al-Naba’, everyone who needed to had pledged allegiance within less than 48 hours of the #Atmeh raid.

On this day 11 years ago (15/03/2011) the Syrian people rose up against one of the most brutal regimes of modern history & launched a revolution for freedom & democracy.

Today, across the liberated areas of #Syria, people are coming together like here in #Raqqa to mark this day.
#Syria: thousands have come together in #Idlib to mark the 11th anniversary of the Syrian revolution.

Some Syrians have also come to voice their solidarity with the people living under occupation in 🇵🇸🇺🇦.
#Syria: video of the moment the #FreeSyria flag was raised over #Idlib, in celebration of the 11th anniversary of the Syrian Revolution.

During the flag raising the Arab anthem Mawtini was played on speakers, a song many hope to see as the national anthem of a post-#Assad Syria.

1. Yesterday #IS confirmed that Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi was killed in February. He has been succeeded by Abul Hasan al-Hashimi al-Qurashi.

It also revealed that Abu Hamza al-Qurashi, his spox, has been killed.

#IS has warned of revenge attacks in weeks to come. Image
2. ExTrac data suggests that this warning of revenge attacks is not likely to be ‘just’ rhetoric.

Just over two weeks after Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Abul Hasan al-Muhajir were killed in November 2019, #IS launched a global revenge campaign. Image
3. This saw it surging attacks globally.

L: #Syria operations more than doubled in the course of a single week.

R: #Nigeria operations also more than doubled. ImageImage

Update #Ukraine .
Im Überblick:
- ukr. und russ. Außenminister treffen sich erstmals;
- #Nuland sorgt mit Aussagen über US-Biolabore in Ukraine für Furore;
- #Mariopol rüstet sich für den Sturm;
- Einkesselung von #Mykolaiv schreitet voran.
Neuer Thread👇
Erstmals seit Beginn der russischen Invasion in der #Ukraine haben sich heute die Außenminister Lawrow und Kuleba in der Türkei getroffen.
Der türk. Außenminister Çavuşoğlu agierte als Vermittler.
Ankara unterhält gute Beziehungen sowohl nach Moskau als auch nach Kiew...
In diesem Sinne könnte sich die Türkei tatsächlich als ein internationaler Vermittler in diesem Konflikt positionieren.
Konkrete Ergebnisse wurden vom heutigen Treffen nicht erwartet, es könnte aber die Grundlage für weitere Verhandlungen legen.

Thread: #Putin’s Worldview:

1. He doesn’t accept defeat. Putin has never “lost” a conflict of scale. Sometimes that comes at high cost to #Russia, certainly the present econ sanctions are an example of that, plus high casualties. This leads to…
2. Win at all costs. See video from #Mariupol to see what Russian mass fires look like in 2022. Eastern and central #Ukraine are beginning to resemble #Aleppo Syria. He intends to hollow out Ukrainian state via mass distraction of infrastructure and economy. This achieves his…
3. Core goal: end Ukraine’s modernization. Putin said he wants to “demilitarize” the country, and many analysts thought that meant defeating Ukrainian military/occupation. So did I once. But lately my opinion has been that demilitarisation equates to destroying capacity to live…

🔴 Can #Ukraine defeat #Russia?

"We know that Russia cannot accomplish the objectives it set out to accomplish, which is to completely occupy and subjugate Ukraine", General H.R.McMaster @LTGHRMcMaster told @mperelman in an exclusive interview:

Mindestens genau so krass: etwa 40 mobile Radiostationen in Woronesch.
Wie zahlreiche Experten sagen: „Ich weiß nicht, ob Russland einen großen Krieg vorbereitet, aber sollte Russland einen großen Krieg vorbereiten wollen, dann sähe es genauso aus.“

Wer dachte, Putins Truppenaufmarsch sei bereits abgeschlossen … 500 Kilometer östlich von Moskau gefilmte Züge voller Panzer und Raketenwerfer.
Russland bewegt 9 von 10 Einheiten aus dem östlichen Militärbezirk an die Grenze der Ukraine.

A number of TV channels and websites close to #Iran published a statement attributed to the so-called "Syria's Allies Operations Room" confirming that the #IDF targeted two of their sites in the vicinity of the Syrian city of #Palmyra.1/6
#Syria #Israel #IRGC #USA #Russia
The statement indicated that the attack was carried out from over the Al-Tanf area and confirmed the deaths and injuries among the fighters of these militias. It also explicitly referred to an American role in this attack, and vowed to respond "very strong".2/6

Do you know the story of #coffee?

Sure you get it from Starbucks or grind it at home but its story was not as simple as farm to pot

The story involves dancing goats, Fatwa, babtization, kings, revolutions, patriotism, Beethoven

Coffee has a rich & troubling history

☕️ Thread
1/ 1st, the legend:

Legend has it that an #Ethiopian goat herder named Kaldi witnessed his goats gamboling after eating coffee shrub’s red fruit. Perplexed, Kaldi tried the fruit himself and realized the same effect on him. A monk witnessed it & took some of the fruit with him.
2/ Now, the history:

The coffee plant and fruit has been used for 1000s of years but it wasn’t until the 13 century when the beans were roasted, which sky rocketed its popularity. Coffee originated in Ethiopia but it was across the Red Sea, in #Yemen, it was first cultivated.

#August21201, the day Western leaders, mostly @BarackObama, decided to abandon their eminent responsibilities and historical consciousness.
Everything that followed logically stems from this assumed will not to act—yes, a deliberate will.
Intervening would not only have saved hundreds of thousands of lives, but would have also stopped the victories of the revisionist powers.
We decided, yes decided, to lose, which means that we decided to let the #crimesagainsthumanity continue until today—they are—, ...
but also to allow the revisionist powers to set the agenda.
There's a continuity in #Syria between the #Ghouta, #Aleppo, #Homs, #Idlib..., but also with the failure of our intelligence and will in #Georgia, #Ukraine, #Belarus, #HongKong & #Afghanistan.

S. #Syria: this morning this huge convoy reached town of #Daraa. It has 100s of 4th Division soldiers with heavy artillery & many armor incl. Adra tanks equipped for urban warfare. Way to get concessions but any offensive has to been greenlighted by #Russia (not the case so far).
S. #Syria: among the equipment 4th Division brought in #Daraa this morning, there's also the IRAM heavy "Golan" launcher, with 12 x 360 mm caliber's rockets (each one with a warhead of 180 kg). Highly imprecise, use for carpet bombardment. ImageImage
S. #Syria: today 4th Division entered the S. part of #Daraa, breaching deal to set up few checkpoints. It triggered clashes with local insurgents. After sporadic shelling, tensions remain tonight amidst negotiations. Outcome: one killed, several wounded.

The hero who saved #Aleppo.

"This is the story of Bassel Karful one of the thousands of the brave martyrs who fought and died for #Syria. Bassel was from Tartous. Everyone who knew him said that he was a joyful always smiling young man whose love for his family has no equal
except his love for his homeland. His ardent patriotism was the key in making this rather humble guy a hero of legendary status. He destroyed three explosive laden trucks and stood his ground against a fourth that the terror groups have used to attack the army's post.
Those heroic acts earned him his spot amongst the greatest in heaven.

It was by mere coincidence that Bassel manned the " Metis "atgm platform instead of his comrade Ahmad Abbas who was on leave in Tartous due to his uncle's death.

In response to the @BBC defamation campaign in which @chloehadj is suggesting that I am a "Russian agent", a claim now amplified by #Syria "regime change" promoter, Michael Weiss - photo below, embedded with extremist armed groups #Aleppo.

.@bbclysedoucet @BBCMonitoring
2. @chloehadj took information from Paul McKeigue emails given to her by CIJA sting op managers. This alone suggests some collusion on part of @BBC to entrap McKeigue. In the emails McKeigue made a claim that I can be contacted through a Russian diplomat in Geneva.
3. This claim was repeated by @chloehadj in a @BBC front page article & in Mayday audio episode. CH claimed I had not responded to claim. This is a lie. CH never contacted me to verify claim. See emails below dated back in March 2021.

McKeigue also emailed CH to retract claim.
