#Assad regime closed schools, universities, cafes, restaurants, clubs, mosques, churchs and all social, religious & sport facilities and stopped the citizens services, compulsory recruitment, prisoners' visits & public transportation.

But officially "still NO #COVID19"
The real danger of spreading #COVID19 in #Syria is via visitors/ fighters from #Iran, the lines at bakeries & gas cylinder suppliers and Bazaars.

To talk about the #COVID19 could lead to be kidnapped by the Mukhabarat and accused of spreading false news or supporting terrorism.
The #Assad regime has many secret places as quarantines. The positive tested persons will be kidnapped and send to a quarantine after taking their cell phone.

The families of positive tested persons can't talk to any due fears of killing the patients in the quarantine.

President Bashar al-#Assad interview, he affirmed that Head of the #Turkish regime, #Erdogan, fights beside terrorists out of his brotherhood ideology, so even Erdogan himself is unable to tell the Turks why he is sending his army to fight in #Syria.

#Saudis used their wealth in combination with their destructive brand of Islam #Wahhabism, to serve Western interests, through its support of the #MuslimBrotherhood. A masonically inspired organization started by Jamal ud Din al Afghani.…

The Assad regime was responsible for 60% of all attacks on churches and other Christian places of worship in the period of 2011-2019.…
In the thread below I will outline all the different cases of regime attacks on churches in #Syria as recorded by the @snhr. This is to counter the belief still existing out there that #Assad actively tried to protect Christians during the war.

1. Syriac Orthodox church of Lady of the Holy Belt, Hamidiyah neighborhood - #Homs city.

Shelled several times by the regime in 2012, most notably on 01/09 when it was hit by a helicopter barrel bomb raid, which caused severe damage.

A lot has changed in #Idlib/NW #Syria in recent days & much of the focus has been on hour-by-hour developments & less has been said on what it all means going forward.

Here's a lengthy thread laying out some of my thinking.
2 weeks ago, pro-#Assad forces were rampaging through #Idlib, overwhelming opposition defenses & swallowing up #Turkey's military observation posts almost at will.

The world stood virtually silent - or indifferent - as 1 million people were methodically & brutally displaced.
#pt: Amid the pro-#Assad advances, #Turkey ramped up arms supplies & intel sharing with #NLF/#SNA opposition proxies - in an attempt to bolster their offensive & defensive capabilities.

Then #TSK artillery support was added, along with a low-tempo campaign of covert UAV strikes.

Short THREAD on my take on #Russia's [in]action to #Turkey's onslaught on #Syria/n army within last 48 hours
[Caveat - this is just my specualtion based on how I read RUS foreign policy, #Putin-#Erdogan relations, and I may be totally wrong]
1. Following killing of TUR servicemen, #Putin, #Erodgan had phone talk where #Turkey's president asked #Russia/n counterpart to "to stand aside in #Syria" and "do what is necessary”, i.e. let Turkey fight Syrian government forces alone"…
2. In this piece for @AlMonitor I discuss the kind of debates in #Moscow over the crisis with #Turkey and what's at stake for #Russia in #Idlib (and, actually, beyond that). No doubt #Kremlin considers all of this when chosing options on #Syria…

#Syrie De multiples sources évoquent une frappe aérienne #russe qui aurait fait un bilan extrêmement lourd du côté de l'armée turque (30 à 50 morts). Difficile d'en vérifier l'ampleur mais beaucoup d'indices semblent confirmer l’occurrence d'un incident extrêmement grave.
#Syrie Des médias turcs proches du pouvoir confirment la tenue d'une réunion d'urgence entre #Erdogan et l'ensemble de l'Etat-Major de l'armée #turque, signe du sérieux de la situation.
#Syrie Jusqu'à là, les #turcs ont décidé de subir les pertes dans leurs rangs à #Idlib sans trop réagir, envoyant plutôt leurs alliés syriens au front et usant de l'argument "c'est le régime d'#Assad, pas les #russes qui nous frappent" pour éviter l'escalade avec #Moscou.

In 85 days, ~1 million people have fled their homes in #Idlib, #Syria.

60% are kids & 20% women.

They're now homeless, hemmed onto a shut #Turkey border. There are no tents left & little food. Kids are freezing to death.

Where the Hell is the world's attention? WAKE UP.
#pt: The #Idlib crisis is unprecedented, BUT not just for #Syria - this is the biggest humanitarian crisis in modern history AND it happened rapidly, in 2-3 months.

This isn't just "someone else's problem," it's a global one. If left untouched, the consequences WILL be global.
#pt: 1 million people, including 600,000 kids, with the clothes on their back & some blankets, if they're lucky. In the winter.

The @UN has run out of cross-border funds & #Syria is blocking supplies from elsewhere.

Meanwhile, #Russia is flattening hospitals, schools & markets.

1. #NES #Syria: I see what appear to be propaganda based reports amplifying a perceived conflict developing between #Russia and #Turkey. There are reports citing Pentagon source but I can find no Pentagon statement to confirm it. Absent that, I'm considering it propaganda.
2. ENKS appearing with Turkey and appearing to have rejected reconciliation in Syria is a serious development. Because I conclude Turkey is a fully corrupted society I suspect #ENKS has been co-opted. The point of this is it appears that ground is being prepared for another
3. Turkish attack on US force areas. Yesterday's strident propaganda piece in @kommersant that I read as an official statement that includes more propaganda to alienate Syrians and create a more dangerous situation for US forces supports Turkey's goal to advance ISIS restart

#Assad regime used always the international & @UN aids as a weapon against the people to humiliate, subjugation & even for military aims.

In this picture the @UNICEF's schoolbag is used as ammunition bag.
@UN @UNICEF it was not a single case of using @UNICEF's schoolbags. Here are two of them to see
@UN @UNICEF Car of @WFP used as wedding car in #Lattakia. I think it was in 2015.

The journalist @shellykittleson writes a short but really effective and punctual portrait of #Idlib, the Syrian Revolution, the #Assad's airstrikes targeting schools since that time she was there, in Sarmeen, and much more, posting a 2012 photo of her on #FB Shelly Kittleson<br />

"Cluster munitions were however already being used by the Syrian government, schools and hospitals were being clearly targeted, and massive, nightly airstrikes shook the ground.

Over 7 and a half years later of constant violence, I wonder what has become of the kids especially Hundreds of thousands have been displaced in these weeks and are freezing with nowhere left to go. An estimated 3 million people are in the province under near-constant attack.<br />

Most of the displaced are women and children

Great to be @MiddleEastInst for an event on #EU-#MiddleEast relations with @AlexVatanka, Przemyslaw Osiewicz and @KianpourWorld. What do changes in EU personnel and the new @EU_Commission mean for EU-MENA relations?

Mr. Guterres .@antonioguterres
Please read these tweets.
I am in #Idlib. I have been displaced nine times.

I hope that you watch the attachments listed in this text.
If your stand was resolute in order to stop the war and compel Bashar Al-#Assad and #Putin to stop their military actions, and the destruction of cities, and the displacement of civilians, then we would not need humanitarian aid.
But, for 9 years, your statements have been spoken without any action. I wish that the United Nations and the Security Council use force against #Assad.
The situation in #Syria would have be different from this dangerous situation.

This picture was taken in December 2019.
A normal pic of kids with a father , talks about a family with two words in it “my daughters, My life”.
By an #Assad airstrike on idlib cs, only the father survived.
The strike killed the 3 girls and the mother.

Let’s have some straight talk on #Soleimani, shall we?
1. Suleimani took command of the Quds Force over 20 years ago and his job is to reshape the Middle East in Iran’s favor: thru military force, by assassinating rivals and arming allies.
2. His twenty year focus is directing
a network of militant groups that has killed hundreds of U.S in #Iraq and others.
3. I know of only ONE American who has ever met him, John Maguire, describing him as soft-spoken yet the most powerful man in the MidEast. Thoughtful, strategic, smart, charismatic - 100% dedicated
4. He personally runs #Iran’s war in #Syria and brought in thousands of #Quds Force when #Assad’s army began to fail.
5. Suleimani and #Nasrallah of #Hezbollah #Lebanon are old friends and cooperate globally where Hezbollah has performed terrorist acts at Iran’s behest.

"Why I'm here today is because #Russia is perpetrating the most enormous war crimes in #Syria, in order to help the #Assad régime crush and torture the Syrian people."

"My message is that Russia can be beaten. Russia lost in Afghanistan, and in Syria they are in such a mess they don't know how to get out of it. Assad's economy is collapsing, he doesn't have an army that wants to fight for him.

"There are new laws, the #Caesar [Civilian] Protection Act in the #UnitedStates is introducing new sanctions against the régime. His ally #Iran faces protests at home and protests in #Iraq. And Russia will lose."

Ecco cos’è che il mainstream non vuole farvi sapere e per questo ha censurato l’intervista al Presidente #Assad:
“Europe was the main player in creating chaos in Syria” (L'Europa è stata il principale attore nella creazione del caos in Siria)
#Assad : “the EU supported the terrorists in Syria from day one, week one or from the very beginning” (l'UE ha sostenuto i terroristi in Siria dal primo giorno, dalla prima settimana o fin dall'inizio)
#Assad : “They blamed the Syrian government, and some regimes like the French regime sent armaments” (Hanno incolpato il governo siriano e alcuni regimi come il regime francese hanno inviato armamenti)

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

@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

@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

Wreckages of the missile used by #SyAF-#Russia|n warplanes on a refugee camp in Qah.
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.
