"Yet for all the lives we have saved, death is beating us. For every Syrian that we’ve saved, there are five that we’ve lost" .From @RaedAlSaleh3, Head of Syria's White Helmets speak to a US Senate Committee on 'Nine Years of Brutality: Assad's Campaign Against the Syrian People'
"Since Russia’s intervention in 2015, the number of internally displaced people has doubled to 8 million; the relentless aerial bombardment and use of siege to retake areas like #Aleppo and #EasternGhouta has forced millions to “evacuate” to #Idlib. Now there isnt another Idlib."
"Raising funds to alleviate the suffering does not work any better than giving painkillers to a cancer patient. How much longer will the international community pursue this strategy before concluding it doesn’t work?"

U.K Govt bombed #Syria based on "alleged" chemical attack in #Douma - now #OPCW has almost ruled out presence of "chemicals" (except traces of "chlorine" elements) at scene of alleged attack in #EasternGhouta. Does May stand trial for violation of intl law? Media - tumbleweed?

How to select the media we use to be informed?
Be very careful about Fake News, which is nothing more than propaganda & give preference to independent media, so that you can analyze important issues based on facts and evidence.

U.S. National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster:

- If we are to follow our promise, ‘Never Again,’ we must not just remember, we must act…

Unfortunately today, in #Syria, we are faced with some of the worst atrocities known to man committed by the #Assad regime… and #ISIS.
H.R. McMaster, talking #Syria at @HolocaustMuseum:

The U.S. is declassifying intelligence that exposes #Assad’s terrible crimes… including last year, when we released satellite imagery that appeared to show a crematorium, located in a regime prison outside #Damascus.
H.R. McMaster, talking #Syria at @HolocaustMuseum:

Unfortunately, many of our attempts to protect civilians… were impeded by #Assad, #Iran & #Russia.

Since 2012, #Tehran has provided more than $16bn to the regime… and transported foreign Shia militias & weapons to Syria.

In case you forgot - the #Assad regime continues to use chemical munitions on civilian areas.

This morning, a chemical gas attack hit the besieged #Douma suburb of #Damascus - mostly women & children affected.

A similar attack hit Douma 9 days ago. #Syria
Civilian vehicles, packed with furniture & personal belongings, were targeted by regime strikes today, as civilians fled bombing in SE #Idlib.

This is #Assad’s “war on terrorism.” See for yourself. #Syria
#Russia & #Assad launched a huge escalation in bombing in #Idlib over the weekend - 150+ airstrikes reported yesterday alone.

Multiple hospitals destroyed and this Neo-natal unit evacuated.

Heartless, criminal violence.
