In #Syria, the ancient city of #Tadmur was liberated from #ISIS. #Russia celebrated a classical music concert in the ancient amphitheatre in #Palmyra. Then ISIS retook the city for a few weeks before it was defeated again. These are tactical victories.
Experienced armies understand that holding the ground is unimportant when a battle is lost. When there is a need to withdraw, there is no hesitation, regroup, and attack again at a later stage.

#NATO is guiding the battle and identifying the weakness in #Russia's line.+
However, Ukrainian army is no longer in a position to win back the lost territories. Tactical victories are used for temporarily propaganda purposes. We have seen the same tactics in other wars. Giving a false sense of victory to #Ukraine is cruel. #Russia will retaliate harder.

#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
This is not the first time that the so-called "Syria's Allies Operations Room" makes a statement. It has issued a number of previous statements, including the attacks of the #IDF on #Syria, and the battles of the city of #Aleppo against the Syrian rebels.3/6

#Syria—Palmyria—During the past few days, #Iranian militias have forced a number of families to leave their homes, with the aim of seizing them.
@OIRSpox @IDF Image
Iranian #terrorist militias forced nearly 30 families from the northern neighborhoods of #Palmyra to leave their homes to accommodate the families of the Afghan, Iranian and Iraqi #militia members. The move is to be the beginning of the demographic change process.
Forcing the families to leave came in conjunction with the #Russian forces' evacuation of their headquarters from the northern neighborhood in Palmyra, for the benefit of #Iranian militias.

In 2015, #Isil took and started destroying #Palmyra in Syria. That was when the so-called world leaders and their same conservative cheerleaders woke up, cried wolf and commissioned more wars. Prior to that, Syrians was slaughtered but none of those people showed as much horror.
SAD that we show more care & protection to objects than we show other humans. An evidence of the absence of humanity. In the current debate, statues have once again proven to matter more than the lives of black people of UK. Shame on our country and its leaders. SHAME!
Today, the same conservative so-called patriotic sects are outraged at statues being destroyed than they have ever been about institutional racism. Because of course, statues matter more than black lives. And that buttresses the point of #blacklivesmatter

#PalmyraSimilarities
A short (?) thread with my not necessarily very logical associations about #Palmyra and the wreaths.
The examples of wreaths from priests' modiuses #Palmyra Syria. All three wreaths have a flower in the centre. The exact meaning of different central medallions is not known, they are probably associated with different cults in Palmyra. Palmyra Museum, part of a sarcophagus from a gardenMedallion with a bust of a priest, Christie's auctionHead of a priest, Hermitage Museum
Different time (4th-3rd C BCE), different place, but this Etruscan wreath reminds me of Palmyra
I'm happy to read the technical description: The leaves and the rosettes are sewn with wires to a ribbon of thin gold sheet
Note the Gorgoneia heads at the ends

Harun Farockis’s film “War at a Distance” in @MoMAPS1’s #TheaterOfOperations Gulf War exhibit gave me even more to think about the ethics of digital recreations of cultural heritage destroyed in war, eg, #Palmyra: vdb.org/titles/war-dis…
Farocki points out that the guidance technology used for self-driving cars, manufacturing equipment, etc, was developed primarily to guide missiles. ImageImageImage
The laser scanning technology that can measure a cultural monument is the technology developed to scan an enemy landscape and lock on to targets. ImageImageImage

1. Ongoing thread covering #IS’s response to and comms around recent developments in northern #Syria. Focus will be on camps, prisons and tactics.
2. 9 Oct: Something weird going on in #Raqqa, which was, per #SDF reports last night, subject to a “large-scale assault” by #IS. Meanwhile, total radio silence from #IS.
3. This is strange. When #IS has mounted flash urban assaults in years gone by, it has intensively reported on them, often as the attacks were ongoing. Think #Palmyra, Dec 16; Kirkuk, Oct 16, #Rutbah, May 16, #Kobane, Jun 15.

Why the #US illegal recognition of the occupied Golan Heights as part of #Israel is dangerous:
1. Arabs will talk & express indignation but will do nothing
2. Syria as a state can't declare war on Israel coz it needs to rebuild itself and can't afford to see the country destroyed
#Israel Air Force, with the unlimited US military support, is capable of destroying the Syrian infrastructure in days & cripple the country for decades in case of war.

Only local resistance, detached but adopted the state - Lebanon trio equation "Army, People, Resistance" - can.
A "National Syrian Resistance" is already born is #Syria with years of all war types experience. This Syrian resistance, under different titles - enjoyed Hezbollah's experience in fighting #Israel and Takfiri.

THREAD: The full story of Syria's #Raqqa 'The Capital of Liberation' from the uprising until the devastation:
1-History:
Raqqa is the Syrian city, situated northern eastern Syria. 1970s the Euphrates dam was built and turned the poor small town of Raqqa into a city.
During the evolution process of Syria, Raqqa's share of development projects was small & most of the resources were stolen by Regime's officials and the state budget was being stolen by Hafiz Assad and his loyal elite. Therefore Raqqa city remained one of the poor cities of Syria
