Iranian militias in #Syria
By the beginning of 2012, with the increasing peaceful demonstrations the #IRGC began to feel the danger to the regime of its ally Assad and the major schisms within the #Assad army. Opposition sources estimate the number of dissidents at 150,000.1/12
Because of Assad's field losses, Tehran gave orders to #Hezbollah terrorist militia to conduct military intervention to save #Assad. It was the first direct military presence of the militia in southern #Damascus and the vicinity of Damascus International Airport.2/12
#Iran #USA
Over time, the #IRGC has established a number of trained, financially and militarily supported militias from #Tehran that are spread over a number of Syrian provinces from #Aleppo to #Daraa.3/12

Al-Qaeda must be trilled knowing 800 #WhiteHelmets are taken under #Israel's protection, following a #USA request to evacuate them, "crossing Israel to #Jordan" as reported by @ronzheimer on the ground.

As predicted, no more "chemical attacks" expected in jihadists stronghold #Idlib when the ops will take off in few months, after ending #ISIS in south #Syria.

#WhiteHelmets (supposedly) turned out to be a valuable intelligence asset gathering info on al-Qaeda, Khorasan, and all the militants as they were praised by every single jihadists and non-jihadists.

If that is the case, it was a successful intel ops.

This young man is Muhammad Sharif Badwan. He was killed East of #Gaza City at the Karni crossing after being shot in the chest by #IDF gunfire on Friday afternoon. #Israel
2/5
Many news sites refer to Badwan as either a protestor or a demonstrator who was shot and killed by the #IDF. The photo on the left, from the DailyMail, states Badwan is a protestor. The photo on the right from CGTN states Badwan is a protestor as well.
3/5
The problem is Badwan wasn’t there to protest in the way most people think. This video was taken Friday afternoon at the Karni crossing where Palestinians were clashing w/ #IDF soldiers. At the end, you can see Badwan being evacuated after getting shot by the #IDF.

1/7 #Report
According to Palestinian reports, at approximately 18:00 hours, an #IDF airstrike struck downtown Gaza City. Two teens were killed as a result of the strike. Reports claimed an empty structure, a children’s park and a mosque were damaged. #Gaza #Israel #Hamas #IDF
2/7
The children’s park in reality is #Qassam Brigade’s “Battalions Square” and the teens who died were inside the structure circled in red. Beside it is the mosque circled in blue which was damaged by the strike.
3/7
Why did the #IDF target this site with air strikes? How does the #IDF know this site is used by #Qassam Brigades? Can we just take their word for it? Here is video of the actual strike.

If the #USA is worried about south #Syria ops it means the establishment is afraid of #SAA's success. Obviously, #SAA took eastern Ghouta with 35K jihadists and the south today has with 20k-25k jihadists & FSA and the geography is much easier.
Actually, the #USA has nothing to do in the south of #Syria. the area is not part of US national security nor it affects #US citizens or interest. It is #Israel that is extremely worried about #SAA regaining demarcation line with #IDF.

#Israel is aware #SAA and its #NDF have gained enough experience and is afraid the long 30-40 years of "peace on the borders" is over: #Damascus next step after the war will be the #GolanHeights, an area rich of oil and exploited by #US companies.

Thread: One should ask, "Why are Palestinians protesting?" before cheering for their death in Gaza.

Most Americans don't understand how every day life of an average Palestinian is constantly and violently disrupted by Israel

I will try to give about 10 examples
Palestinians are forced to live in two areas -- West Bank & Gaza. It's almost impossible to go from one to another. Israelis control the borders

Gaza is the largest open prison in the world. It's surrounded by giant fence/wall
Life in #WestBank is miserable because the Israeli police are right there.

Every day, Palestinian children and adults have to go through all kinds of checkpoints and searches and harassment

They are literally under a military occupation

#Israel will never recognize #Palestine,illegal segregated settlements in the #WestBank keep growing & #Gaza is a #ConcentrationCamp.
THE 2-STATE SOLUTION FACADE ENABLES #ISRAEL TO CLAIM THEY'RE A DEMOCRACY,allowing settlers in the occupied territories to vote & #Palestinians not
#Netanyahu:"I Deceived the #US to Destroy Oslo Accords"
#Israel never wanted peace,they already occupy #Palestine, only maintain the 2-state solution topic alive so they don't have to let Palestinians vote while claiming to be a Democracy.

Thread: Observations on the MarchForReturn protest in #Gaza on Friday.
#Israel was aware that thousands were likely to attend the protest. The #IDF warned people to not breach the fence, and brought many soldiers to cover the border in case hundreds of people broke through.
The event cannot be simply characterised as either a "riot" or "peaceful protest". Apparently instigated by civilians, it was manipulated by #Hamas to enter the no-go zone adjacent to the border with Israel. Attending were peaceful civilians, violent rioters, and armed terrorists
