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.

#EyesOnIdlib
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?
Listen to our own MENA episode on Europe and #Iran here: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/eur…
What are the main issues in MENA region for EU?
1) #MiddleEast Peace Plan
2) Iran

Mr. Guterres .@antonioguterres
Please.
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.

#IdlibUnderFire
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.
#IdlibUnderFire
#Idlib
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.

UNSCR 2449-on cross border aid in #Syria-was extended six months and the new version severely limits to border access-particularly to the NE. It passed with numerous abstentions, including #US. #Aid via @OCHA_Syria continues, but through fewer borders.
This inevitably is a win for #Russia and the #Assad regime who are a few steps closer to reconsolidating political power over Syria’s border. In a sense it’s about sovereignty and legitimacy. #Syria lacks both at present because UN doesn’t require Syrian consent...
This issue emerged in 2014 due to egregious government attacks on civilian populations and sieges on urban areas where the state employed #humanitarian access to systematically keep food and aid from targeted areas. 2165/2554 was passed to bypass state consent and open up aid...

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.

As a former @StateDept official who worked on Iraq and Syria for a decade, two decisions taken by the Obama Administration greatly empowered #QassimSolimani. The first was allowing his #Qudsforce to successfully support #Assad. The second to play a leadership role in the #PMF
We watched him ferry supplies to Assad as early as 2012 over Iraqi airspace and eventually send Iraqi and Afghan militias, and Quds Force personnel. We watched them lay siege to, and starve countless Syrian towns from Homs to Mouadmaya to Aleppo.
Then we allowed his proxies a leadership role in the US-backer PMF that we provided indispensable air cover to and the support of a 70-nation counter-ISIS coalition. The Iraqi government begged us at the time to bail them out when Mosul fell. We could have kept Soleimani out.

"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)

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

bit.ly/37X4xLH

1/
@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

2/
@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

Jüngst machte ein Tweet des #AfD-MdB Frank Pasemann die Runde, der der Öffentlichkeit das auf die Inszenierung einer perfekten Reise ausgerichtete Video eines Reise-Bloggers als authentischen Beleg für die aktuelle Situation in #Syrien verkaufen will. Der fragliche Blogger...
...der sämtliche Länder der Welt bereist und mit solchen Videos inzwischen sein Geld verdient, hat bereits 2017 ein ähnlich naives Video zu #Nordkorea veröffentlicht. Dort zeigt er seinen Fans, "wie normal" das Leben in dieser totalitären Diktatur ist.

Tatsächlich hofiert das #Assad-Regime ganz gezielt ausländ. Touristen, um das Bild #Syrien's in der westl. Welt positiv zu beeinflussen. Aus demselben Grund werden auch #AfD-Delegationen von Regime-Bücklingen in sicheren Gebieten von Sehenswürdigkeit...

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.

BREAKING - reports of a (US?) helicopter-borne raid on a convoy of Huras al-Din (#AlQaeda in #Syria) leaders traveling near Barisha in #Idlib.

Locals say as many as 6 choppers involved - gave chase to convoy, 2 landed & assaulted vehicles. Possibly took bodies or evidence away.
#pt: Barisha is ~3-4km from the #Turkey border. It's in long-time #AlQaeda territory, spanning between Al-Dana-Sarmada-Salqin.

As I recall, a helicopter-borne raid on AQ in NW #Syria has never happened - this would suggest a very high-level target.
#pt: In more recent years, the Turkistan Islamic Party (#TIP) has probably been the most significant authority in the Barisha region (stretching NE to Jisr al-Shughour).

Unverified reports have claimed 1 #TIP fatality, in what looks like a series of successive clashes. #Idlib

Forse, non tutti sanno che:

La famiglia #Assad appartiene agli alawiti. La parte più tollerante dell'Islam.
Le donne siriane hanno gli stessi diritti degli uomini nella sanità e nell'istruzione.
In Siria le donne non sono obbligate a indossare il burqa. (1)
La Sharia (la legge islamica) è incostituzionale.
La Siria è l'unico paese arabo con una costituzione laica e non tollera movimenti estremisti islamici.
Circa il 10% della popolazione siriana appartiene ad una delle molte denominazioni cristiane (2)
cristiane presenti sia nella vita politica che sociale. Questa tolleranza religiosa è unica nella zona.
In altri paesi arabi la popolazione cristiana è inferiore all'1% a causa dell'ostilità sostenuta.

1. #QAnon #PanicInDC: @SidneyPowell1 says #Durham investigation will reveal the #Russian-style #SpyGate political take out of individuals as a "remarkable revelation that'll shake all of us who love this country to the core", ineluctably outing the #DeepStateCoup, the #CoupCabal
2. #QAnon #PanicInDC: Christopher Steele was recently interviewed by John Durham. The #DeepState #CoupCabal has #PanicInDC over whether #Steele will "hold firm" as the #Clown cutout, or tell the truth.
3. #QAnon #PanicInDC: John Durham is curious to know why Peter #Strzok would've opened a case on Donald Trump July 31, 2016 on a Sunday. On a Sunday? With no solid evidence? Strzok approves himself? Lisa Page explains (more than she intended).
