Tens of thousands of civilians are currently on the streets and in cars, most of them women, children, and elderly people, with snowfall and sub-zero temperatures. Children shiver, women cry and elderly people pray.
#syria #Idlib #Aleppo
Some of them kindle a stove, and some of them ignite a fire, to warm themselves a little on the street.

There are no mosques, no houses, not even a tent.
These civilians left with the clothes they were wearing only, and they do not even have blankets.
#syria #Aleppo #Idlib
Some cover themselves with pieces of cloth and some of them with cardboard.
People were displaced on a bicycle and people walk on foot.
People whose veins are frozen and especially in children.
There is no shelter and no empty houses.

This is the case of our people in #Syria.

#Aleppo
Here the world has stood silent

Russian warplanes turned #Syria into a living hell.

More than 35 civilians were killed in the past 48 hours in #Aleppo and #Idlib while bombing continues.

What do you know about a country whose inhabitants visit death from time to time
What do you know about a child who went to school and never came back
What do you know about feeling fear
What do you know about the sounds of bullets and hitting rockets?
What do you know about killing innocent people?
What do you know about bereaved screams
What do you know about hunger; about deprivation; about not having a family; do you not have a home, to lose a home

Revolutions are about daring.

Revolutions begin when you dare to dream of what you’ve been told is impossible.

This is what the Arabic on Waad Al-Kateab, the #Syrian director of Oscar-nominated film "For Sama," says:

“We dared to dream and we will not regret dignity.”

#Syrian designer and events planner Reem Masri is behind Oscar-nominated Waad Al-Kateab’s For Sama Oscar dress.

Masri, a refugee based in the southeastern Turkish city of Gaziantep, has known Kateab since 2013. en.vogue.me/awards/waad-al…

[THREAD] On weapons captured by Tavhid Ja Jihod a couple of days ago in #Khalsa #Aleppo, likely from Iranian militias, which have suffered high casualties.

Quantites of small arms including T56, AKM-pattern rifles, & PKM-pattern MG. Customisation is typical of Shia militias.
1/
3x RPG launchers including a DIO-produced model from Iran, a Chinese Type 69, and another RPG-7 pattern launcher- possibly Russian or Bulgarian
2/
Here's where things get interesting- multiple Iranian produced RPG warheads, including PG-7-AT "Nader", PG-7-AT-1 "Fath",plus PG-7VL & PG-7VM rounds from Russia. This isn't a huge capture but is a good indication of how regime forces (In particular Iranian-aligned) are armed.

There's a lot of chance most of you interested in the Middle East saw this 5-pointed 5-colored star at some time during your (real-life/online) travels. There's also a lot of chance most of you don't exactly know what is symbolizes or represents. A thread on this #Druze symbol.
The #Druze (#Arabic sg. darzī - pl. durūz) are an esoteric ethno-religious community concentrated in #Syria's al-Suwaydāʾ, the Golan Heights and #Lebanon's al-Shūf Mountains. They count around a million adherents, forming a substantial minority in the Levant.
The Druze religion is as syncretic as it is esoteric, mixing elements of Isma'ilism, #Hinduism, Neoplatonism and Gnosticism together in a monotheistic setting. Without going too much into detail, we'll explore some key elements of their creed in order to understand their symbol.

Everyone is a partner in the bloodshed in #Syria, those who are bombing, killing, funding, sending sectarian militias, providing the killers with coordinates, denying the Syrian people the means to defend themselves, and who are keeping silent.
The Russian occupation forces, Iranian militias, and Assad's gangs are committing all types of crimes against civilians in Maaret al-Numan and rural #Aleppo

#Idlib #Aleppo

SO IT SEEMS IT HAS BEGUN

From #MaaratalNuman to the north of #Aleppo the Russian/Assad militias have opened at least 6 fronts. Till mow only deir sharki has fallen and rebels are showing a mythological steadfastness
#Aleppo

Rebels targeted New Aleppo, with dozens of elephant rockets and achieved direct hits.
The Regime is still heavily reliant on nightvision and flir scopes to advance. This is a clear disadvantage for rebels as they lack nightvision equipment

LONG BUT WELL WORTH READING!

#Aleppo the downfall for the Assad regime?

Some reasons why the Assad regime, supported by Russia is now focusing on western rural Aleppo and why this could be its downfall

Why did the Assad occupation choose to target the land of Aleppo?
Since the fighting began in mid-2019, in the northern Hama countryside and in the southern Idlib countryside, the regime's military has deliberately chosen areas that have less fortified and level ground, so they can use the so-called scorched earth policy.
Then the Russian occupation and the Assad militia managed to storm areas controlled by the Rebels.

This tactic allowed The Russian/Assad militias to conquer several areas from the hands of the Rebels after being forced to withdraw.

#BREAKING: An #USAF's MQ-9 Reaper drone used its Hellfire R9X to slice a top JIhadist commander in pieces in al-Bassuta, #Afrin, #Syria. First footage of the aftermath of the airstrike which left a commander of #AlQaeda affiliated #HTS (Hayat Tahrir al-Sham) & two others dead 👇
This Operation was jointly carried-out by the #CIA & #USAF. The Hellfire R9X managed to turn targets into mince meat without causing any harm to any individual outside the car. It is reported that the dead #HTS commander was cooperating with #Turkey backed #SNA terrorists.
Video shows that the car which was targeted had high speed in the #Azaz-#Afrin road in the northern countryside of #Aleppo outskirt, North of #Syria. Not any other car or individual which was in the road at that time was hit. The missile precisely killed the targets.

NEW | #Russia's Dead-End Diplomacy in #Syria

My latest @TheStudyofWar w/ Jason Zhou covers:

-A complex power balance b/t #Assad & his backers
-Evolution of Russia's integrated military & diplomatic efforts
-Russian limits in Syria
-A way forward

bit.ly/37X4xLH

1/
@TheStudyofWar A meaningful diplomatic settlement in #Syria remains distant despite consistent US efforts to support one

America's core mistake is repeatedly expecting that #Russia can & will solve our #Assad problem(s)

It is a mental block we must overcome to have a more effective policy

2/
@TheStudyofWar Since 2015, #Russia has failed to achieve 5 major diplomatic goals on the heels of military success. Most often, #Assad has spoiled

1. 2017 Astana
2. 2018 Sochi
3. 2018 reconciliation deals
4. Reconstruction $ for refugee returns
5. Reconstruction $ for Idlib de-escalation

<thread> Four years ago, I went to #Greece to work on a short documentary on the #refugee crisis. I was prepared for many things physically, but I wasn’t prepared to gain a family. Today I want to tell you their story, and why countries should open their doors to refugees 1/x
I first met 6 yr old Menwar when I joined filmmaker & friend Ida Theresa Myklebost to work on her film “Unwelcome” & we found ourselves in a makeshift refugee camp near the Greece-Macedonia border. My laptop was locked; he banged on some keys, unlocked it & stole my heart 2/x
When I took this photo of Menwar, he & his family had been in Greece for over a year after their house in #Aleppo was destroyed in the war and they made the treacherous journey by sea to #Europe. By that time, in mid-2016, Europe was closing its doors. They were in limbo. 3/x

Still unclear to me the logic of using such weapon since now Russia cannot share its well-known fake news about White Helmets staging the attacks.

Death toll in Qah refugee camp due to a #SyAF-#Russia|n airstrike rised to +20. +15 wounded.

Never has the self-suicide of #Syria's mainstream opposition been more clear than in recent days.

#Afrin was really bad, but this NE incursion (its manner; its consequences etc.) is truly beyond the pale -- in truth, what we've witnessed is a #Turkish campaign through-&-through.
It's clear now that the Dec 2016 loss of #Aleppo - in large part due to #Turkey selling it out to #Russia - was *the* turning point.

Opposition factions lost any sense of autonomy of action & over the years that followed, everyone but #JFS-#HTS & #AlQaeda existed *for* #Ankara.
An #American presence in NE #Syria kept at least some of this #Turkish ambition under wraps (just ), but #Trump's naive (or malicious?) "green light" decision after speaking with #Erdogan let everything loose.

Only now are we seeing the consequences -- and they're not yet clear.

I repeat it once again as repetition can be useful:

Opposing the Turkish invasion for several reasons:
The opposition, which is fighting alongside Turkey, left the Assad regime and Iran, and turned to carry out the agenda of some countries under the name of fighting YPG, PKK etc
This matter is between Turkey and these factions, and must not be at the expense of civilians in Syria, especially in our regions.
The issue of the repatriation and settlement of refugees through military battles and by force is not a guarantee and cannot be achieved.

The #Assad regime is gradually regaining a legitimacy, that it has been looking for for years,
