Watch my video on the #CaesarAct, the latest package of sanctions on #Syria and those who try to help Damascus circumvent the unilateral coercive measures.
#Syria's FM Walid al-Moallem delivers Syria's speech at the 75th session of UN general Assembly:
Moallem: Caesar’s law came to suffocate civilians in Syria and prevent them from receiving treatment.
Al-Moallem: So-called “Caesar Act” targets Syrians in their livelihood… Syria will spare no effort to end US and Turkish occupation.

USA meddelar att ytterligare namn har påförts sanktionslistan i enlighet med #CaesarAct:

- Hafez Bashar Assad, Assads äldsta son (uppkallad efter farfadern, den förra diktatorn av Syrien), född 2001.
- Wazssim Qattan, affärsman.

Nu har jag gått igenom listan som omfattas av de senaste sanktionerna. Utöver de två ovan handlar det om kusin till Assad samt tillgångar till Wassim Qattan. En märklig egendom är Hotel Al-Jalaa (främst syriska försvarsmakten bor där) som revs redan 2018. Häng med lite, USA;) Image
Ok, efter lite mer grävande visade sig att affärsmannen Qattan hade vunnit uppdraget att bygga ett nytt hotell istället för den skabbiga som revs 2018. Image

Russian-Chinese Veto is Political Terrorism & Major Crime against Syrian Civilians
#Syria #Russia
#Russia and #China’s use of their veto power on the #UNSC to block a joint #German-#Belgian draft resolution on extending the delivery of #UN relief aid to #Syria through border crossings outside the Assad regime's control constitutes a major crime against millions of Syrian
The Russian-Chinese stance represents organized political terrorism that has been ongoing at the UNSC for several years. Active Council members and major permanent members are overseeing and participating in committing crimes against humanity and war crimes and covering them up.

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.

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.
