Interesting that Kurdish outlets are publishing these details. The YPG has an interest in showing there's an alternative to the "safe zone" Ankara and Washington are discussing #Syria
The current configuration suggests there will be two rival negotiating tracks, one US-sponsored track focused on creating a safe zone along the #Syria-#Turkey border, and another Russia-backed track meant to integrate the SDF back into the regime
Those two tracks can complete each other, but they also most likely will be in competition. If the SDF feels Washington is siding with Turkey, it will be more willing to make compromises with the regime for instance #Syria

#Qatar Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad bin Khalifa now descending to Rafic Hariri Airport in #Beirut #Lebanon for the Arab economic summit. Looking at the flight path and the huge detour avoiding #Iraq and #Syria I believe there is a bit of anxiety in the air. @kaisos1987
The "Qatar-Iran-Turkey" Axis....in the sky
The Airbus A320 Prestige is for the delegation.
This is the Emir's prestigious 747-800 now landing in #Beirut. Same bird given by the Emir to #Erdogan.

Although Shia Islam is widely associated with #Iran , it’s important to note that Shia’s origin is very much Arabian than Persian. #Cairo itself was built by the Fatimits (Shias whose name is linked to the Prophet’s daughter Fatima)
Fatimid caliphate Al-Mu'izz is credited with commissioning the invention of the fountain pen after having grown tired of getting ink on his fingers & cloths and In 974 the first fountain pen was born
Fatimids were very tolerant of other religions & sects. The Caliphate al-Aziz appointed a Christian as one of his main viziers, a Jewish governor for #Syria / #Palestine . He was also married to Christian Russian woman. #Cairo prospered during such religious tolerance

Those blaming Syrian Govt for bread & petroleum products not only need to understand the role of the US Eco sanctions on maritime shipping & insurance but also the role of Govt subsidies that drain the limited financial resources & allow for profiteers to use the system ==>
According to recent accounts, Syrian Govt subsidizes bread & petroleum products to the tune of SYP 8 Billion a day. This is around US$ 8 Million per day at current exchange rate. The subsidy on bread is US$ 2 Million and that on Petroleum is US$ 6 Million day on and day out ==>
Bread subsidies are intertwined with subsidies on energy products. Bakeries receive both wheat & fuel from Syrian Govt at below market prices and commit to specific amount of bread production and weight per pack of bread. Many cheat on both and sell the wheat & fuel to black mkt

Get the popcorn, Friday & Saturday will deliver on the MAGA promise. POTUS knows he must clean house (gov't) in order to 'free up' and demonstrate who has authority in order to pass important legislation. This was always the priority.

1. And now I'm going to tell a story. Another false flag. This time is to force @POTUS not to take the US army out of #Syria.
They already have a lot of experience (8 years) to make chemical attacks to accuse the Syrian government.
OH, and they even have a manual.🧐😲🤨
@RandPaul
2. ISIS terrorist? 😲Seriously?🤨 Have they investigated? 🤓And they already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

Preliminary reports say at least six people were killed & 19 injured by the explosion. US official: 4 US army Killed & 3 US army wounded.

3. ISIS took responsability?😲Seriously?🤨Have they investigated?🤓They already know who it was? 🧐Super efficient 🙃.

The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) took responsibility for the attack that reportedly targeted the US-led coalition’s patrol.

Having survived war, the average citizen of #Syria now faces devastating economic conditions following recent tightening of sanctions on most petroleum imports into the country. Shockingly (perhaps not), most of those in opposition outside seem to be enjoying such scenes
When #Syria observers & pundits talk about their concern for the "Syrian people", they are lying. They only care about their side wining. Note how not a single media outlet has bothered to report on crippling shortages of all petroleum products since this treasury.gov/resource-cente…
#Syria 's leadership has recently been receiving increased criticism by citizens & loyalists who are suffering tremendous Eco hardship. After years of war, the country is broken. Its finances are in ruin. It faces debilitating sanctions. What should the leadership do? =>

BREAKING: 5 US soldiers die in attack designed to convince Trump to keep troops in #Syria. They say it was #ISIS, but who benefits? Israel, Bolton, the Kurds. In 2014 the Kurdish YPG were exposed for assassinating Christian leader David Jindo, they tried to claim it was ISIS.
If you would like to learn more about how the Kurdish YPG botched the assassination of a Christian leader which they had tried to pin on #ISIS, Watch this video. For anyone that thinks Kurdish groups aren't capable of #FalseFlags #Syria.
Recall: Kurdish Groups threatened the US with releasing 3,000 ISIS militants if they pull out of #Syria. Just as the US was pulling out of Manbij, an #ISIS attack happens in Manbij, even though it has been peaceful for two years. Coincidence? nytimes.com/2018/12/20/wor…

“In most instances the regime would have the resources to crush a Sunni opposition movement but we believe widespread violence among populace could stimulate large numbers of Sunni officers & conscripts to desert or mutiny, setting the stage for civil war”cia.gov/library/readin…
CIA Memo 1986:

"We judge that U.S. interests in #Syria probably would be best served by a Sunni regime as it may well include relative moderates interested in securing western aid and investment. Such a regime would probably be less inclined to escalate tensions with #Israel"
CIA Memo 1986:

"The economy is #Syria 's most pressing internal problem, and hopes for near-term improvement are dim. The US Embassy reports that the vast majority of Syrians are finding it increasingly difficult to afford basic necessities"

Ratney in 2018 on U.S. policy in #Syria

“Resolve the core regime-opposition conflict by pressuring the Assad regime via international ostracism of his government and support for the insurgency against it”

Let me translate this in more plain English ==> cco.ndu.edu/News/Article/1…
2-“International ostracism” was an attempt to banish the Syrian State & isolate #Syria through the use of media, diplomatic pressure and threat of economic sanction. Idea was weaken Assad/State by impoverishing the country through isolation. Now, let’s throw more arms inside too
3-“Support for the insurgency against the regime”

is a fancy way for saying we will fund, arm and train every and any Syrian man willing to fight against his government. It’s a policy of taking on the role of evil while wearing a suit & holding fancy degrees from Ivey schools

Did you know #Turkey has a #BorderWall of 764-kilometer or (475-mile) among its border with #Syria? The project was finished in June 2018. It is made from Concrete and barb wire @charliekirk11 Build bridges not walls....
Some more pictures of the #BorderWall from #Turkey with #Syria.
This is the 3.1 billion euros of money what Europe gave to #Turkey back in the summer of 2015, to help and keep the #Refugees in Turkey. Meanwhile they keep living in plastic tents and mobile homes instead of building real homes with that money Europe gave them.

IDF Chief Gadi Eisenkot said to @nytimes

“Israel has complete intelligence superiority in #Syria . We enjoy complete aerial superiority. We have strong deterrence and we have the justification to act against Iranian interests there”
“We noticed a significant change in Iran’s strategy. Their vision was to have significant influence in Syria by building a force of up to 100,000 Shi'ite fighters from Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. They built intelligence bases and an air force base within each Syrian air base”
“I can say with confidence that as we speak Hezbollah does not possess accurate [missile] capabilities except for small and negligible ones. They were hoping to have hundreds of missiles in the mid- and long-range.”

#Syrian air defense, Good job. But this can’t continue like this. It has to be: an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. If the Israeli regime attacked Damascus airport, you should respond by launching several missiles to the Tel Aviv airport. 💣💥🔥

Thread challenging the seemingly overwhelming consensus that the death & destruction that accompanied the crisis in #Syria is the direct result of the Syrian State's decision to refuse to transition out of power but to instead fight against its own people till the bitter end =>
2-The reason the Syrian State receives the overwhelming share of the blame is because the world had just seen what happened in #Tunisia , and to a lesser extent in #Egypt, and thought/hoped that #Syria would most likely follow the same path.
3-Using the #Tunisia #Egypt examples to extrapolate to #Syria ignored the profound differences in the sectarian mix of these countries, made all too real by an earlier uprising (Muslim Brotherhood) that swept Syrian cities some four decades earlier. Wounds since then never died

No one from #Syria invited the US to invade their country, created & funded ISIS, Al-Qaeda, "moderate rebels", White Helmets, kill thousands of civilians, destroy infrastructures & provoke refugee crisis.
@RandPaul @POTUS @UsCongressnews1 @EU_Commission @AmbJohnBolton @SecPompeo
Are you Syrian? No! @SecPompeo you have no right to decide about Syria's politics. #Syria has a legitimate government whether you like it or not. Who decides on Syria's alliances is President Assad. 🇮🇷will only come out of 🇸🇾when the two presidents decide.

Ex-Nusra (#AQ rebranded HTS) walked into its own death by taking a large territory in #Idlib and its surrounding. The defeat of large groups like Ahrar and Souqourv al-Sham (who showed little resistance) and the elimination of Zinki group will have deadly consequences on AQ.+
No doubt #Turkey asked Ahrar et al to stand down & avoid fighting (for now). It means #Ankara would be happy to see the end of its presence in #Idlib on the long term. For this, Erdogan needs to see a very large battle taking place first in the north between these groups and #AQ
Erdogan & Putin will have a meeting soon to discuss the #Kurds and #AQ in #Idlib. I expect hot spring in Idlib and a large offensive against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. Abu Mohammad al Joulani's ambition (from ex-ISIS emir to AQ Emir to ruler of Idlib) is helping to end this phenomena.
