#SRO - Interesting how some find themselves estonished about #KSA Khashoggi affair... Remember #KSA was one of last #Assad regime supporters in 2011. The kingdom was supporting regime (its supporters forgeting it, strangely) when all others arab states declared it criminal (1).
#SRO - During the 2011 first months of brutal killings of thousands of protesters by regime soldiers and shabihas, #KSA took the stance to be "neutral", watching the massacre without any problem : and for sure, most of those killed could vote, a day, for Muslim Brotherhood (2).
#SRO - When #Turkey and #Qatar began to act in june - july 2011, #KSA refused to follow. But when armed struggle began with army defector and some MB linked groups about to fight #KSA was seeing its enemies (Muslim Brotherhood) about to take another country (after #Egypt) (3).

ADD. : Duma was taken by #FSA between January 21 and February 3, 2012 before entering shadow for months and coming back in mid-march 2012. During months, they made so many skrimishes on regime troops and tanks (more than 23 tnaks destroyed between April and September) (1).
ADD.: #FSA mostly controlling #Duma in september 2012 but not important points and buildings. After an horrible regime strike that killed nearly 40 civilians (including 7 children), #FSA announced offensive to take city. After weeks of battles, it ended in November 2, 2012 (2).

This is a thread revisiting the horrific false flag chemical attack on Ghouta in August 2013

Leaked documents have shown that Obama's administration supported a plan for "rebels" in Syria to launch a chemical attack which would be blamed on the Assad govt

May 2013
Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder containing sarin gas after searching the homes of Syrian Nusra Front "rebels" in Turkey

#Ghouta #FalseFlag #Syria
Two months before the 2013 Ghouta chemical attack an FSA general blackmails "the international community", saying that unless "rebels" are provided with weapons/ammo within one month, FSA will reveal all they know about the use of chemical weapons in Syria

Fascinating & damning deep-dive into the mess that followed #Assad’s Sarin attack in E. #Ghouta in August '13.

@BarackObama’s “cold feet” & distance, #Putin’s political “games” & @Ed_Miliband being “actively unhelpful.”

= Delays guaranteed no action.

thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/s…
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: Exasperated at how distant #Obama had seemed & how difficult it was to connect with him by phone, the UK’s PM #Cameron said:

- "The next time I ask to talk to the president about chemical weapons attacks, tell me to turn over on my sun lounger and go to sleep.” #Syria
@BarackObama @Ed_Miliband #pt: After briefly expressing support for UK military action in #Syria, @Ed_Miliband's turn to party politics to slow/prevent action left PM #Cameron’s office furious, to say the least:

- “No 10 & the Foreign Office think Ed Miliband is a f****** c*** & a copper-bottomed s***.”

Preparations appear to be underway for a pro-#Assad offensive on #Idlib.

12hrs of on/off air & artillery strikes vs. southeastern & western #Idlib & northern #Hama - see marks on map (original by @ETANA_Syria + my additions).

+ multiple large pro-regime convoys moving north.
@ETANA_Syria #pt: If/when any major military campaign gets underway, expect the #Assad regime (+ #Russia & #Iran-backed militias) to focus on these 2 fronts:

1) West #Idlib (Jisr al-Shughour)
2) N. #Hama/#SE #Idlib (Latamineh, Khan Sheikhoun, Kafrazita)

-> a gradual push ‘inland’ & north.
@ETANA_Syria Very good by @theIRC’s @DMiliband:

- The West must “re-assert” itself & protect civilians in NW #Syria & as a backstop, safe-routes should be opened for civilians to flee into #Turkey.

- UNSC must demand full access to S #Syria; for aid, monitoring etc.

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.

Le problème de @LeMediaTV et @Reporterre n'est pas un problème de journalisme mais un problème de racisme. Le fait qu'ils aient relayé une fausse rumeur émanant des victimes de la répression policière est plutôt sain pour la vie militante
Et il faut pas se leurrer le mort en manif a priori il est parfaitement crédible. Le problème encore une fois n'est pas que @LeMediaTV ou @Reporterre soient des organes militants et refusent de se soumettre aux logiques et au fonctionnement des journalistes
Le problème est d'abord que cette dimension n'est jamais admise. "Nous on est un média alternatif qui va faire différent de ce que font les médias en étant engagé pour des idées au lieu d'être dans des logiques marchandes" ouais t'es un machin militant quoi où est le prob?

In few moments will share some information about the forthcoming war in #Syria.
1+/ The US/EU war on Syria is expected in the next 10 hours according to sources in #Syria close to decision makers.

All Syrian troops were ordered to empty their barracks and keep 5% presence only.
2+/ #USA and #EU may target - as expected - the Syrian Air Force (many dislocated and other spread but not flying), the central for command and control, all radars and known anti-air missiles, Ministry of Defence, Presidential Palace and other sensitive Syrian bases.

BREAKING: The White House has said that US President #Trump is canceling his upcoming South America trip to remain in the US "to oversee the American response to Syria." - @NBCNews
This sounds like the US is planning to strike #Syria and Trump will remain in the US to closely monitor responses by #Russia. This is terrible.
BREAKING - British forces are now mobilizing at their bases in #Cyprus for strikes against #Syria. It appears very likely that the US, France and U.K. will strike Syria in the next 24 hours. This is dreadful.

#Russia imposed on #Israel to notify its Air movement over #Syria and the course of its jets if ever willing to enter the Syrian airspace. Israel believed Russia is informing Damascus to be prepared when knowledgeable about an Israeli violation.+

BREAKING: rebels in #Douma have used chemical weapons on some of the hostages they kidnapped from in Adra. #Ghota #Syria
The victim of the chemical attacks in #Ghouta #Douma are the same civilians hostages the rebels kidnapped from the nearby town of Adra. Recall how they were paraded around town in cages. Video here:
Kidnapping Civilians, using them as human shields, then gassing them is a rebel tactic. Civilians kidnapped in Latakia, may have been gassed in the Khan Shaikyoun Idlib. Today's attack is exactly one year to the day of #Trumps strike on Syria.

Important: Here's how the Russian brokered deal to evacuate #Douma involving #SAA & Jaysh al Islam (JAI) went sour, paving the way for a widespread military operation today in the last trapped rebel enclave in East #Ghouta
31. Within 48 hours the deal should be completed, which draws to a close the Russian backed #SAA operation to retake the whole of Eastern #Ghouta
32. Buses enter #Douma just now to start process of taking JAI to #Jarablus under terms of agreement

#BreakingNews:
The first busses carrying hundreds of "Jaish al-Islam" and members of their families are leaving NOW #Duma. The beginning of clearing #Damascus. #Syria.
626 "Jaish al-Islam" militants/families have left #Ghouta towards #Aleppo - #Jarablus . The evacuation is slow because the Syrian Army wants to make sure the 100s of millions (JAL requested to take away $900 m but the request was rejected) r not taken away
Jaish al-Islam is expected to join the fight against #AQ & other Jihadists under #Turkey flag in the city and rural #Idlib where #Ankara is planning to eliminate those who don't obey its agenda. #Russia threatened #Idlib if #AQ remain in it, strong.

There has been increased chatter both inside Opp circles and in Damascus about the possibility of an imminent strike by the U.S on #Syria. It seems that this chatter has been building on the back of private and even public warnings by Russian officials ==>
2-Rather curiously, such expectations of a U.S strike seem more pronounced in “Syrian” circles than in Washington or in US chatter. At first glance, it appears that if a strike were to occur it would be in retaliation to the Syrian Army move in #Ghouta . But this is unlikely =>
3-While Washington May indeed be unhappy about the #Ghouta military operations and now that civilians are leaving, it would make a Ghouta-related US military strike rather unlikely. Instead of Ghouta, any rationale for US strike has to come from those dreaded “Iranian Corridors”

Note/Thread on civilians evacuating from #Ghouta - It’s remarkable how the “International Community” goes missing once citizens are able to leave areas such as Ghouta or Aleppo before it. Cries about their well-being suddenly stop once they exit those horrible scenes ==>
2- In the period before evacuations commence, the world attention is rightly fixated on the fate & conditions of these civilians. One would think that once they leave, international organizations would rush to do all they can to reach the very people they have been worried about
3-Just this morning, one International agency made it to Adra. In a private conversation, the head of this group reported seeing nearly 7,000 people who made it there from Ghouta. SARC, Syrian Army/Govt and handful of Russians are the only ones there trying to offer assistance

IMPORTANT: Following A Meeting at Humeimim Air Base, A potential Comprehensive Agreement is Near Involving Russian Officers & Representatives of The Armed Groups from Douma In East #Ghouta . Here The Early Details ==>

3-The access roads to Douma will open to allow all the injured to leave. SARC will be the exclusive party in charge.

.@StateDeptSpox: Brutal airstrikes by Russia and the regime continue, especially in Eastern #Ghouta, despite the unanimous UN Security Council vote on February 24th to demand an immediate cessation of hostilities throughout #Syria.
.@StateDeptSpox: Strikes on Eastern #Ghouta in recent days have demonstrated the farcical nature of Russia’s proposed humanitarian corridor. Russia is clearly attempting to feign implementation of UNSCR2401 while showing complete disregard for the ongoing humanitarian disaster.
.@StateDeptSpox: Russia’s unwillingness to adhere to its numerous commitments was fully demonstrated again by the fact that trucks carrying much needed aid were forced to withdraw from the area due to pro-regime attacks which killed dozens of innocent civilians. #Syria #Ghouta

THREAD on #Russia's stance in Eastern #Ghouta:
1.#Putin convened a National Security Council meeting today to discuss the situatiion,;directed all RUS agencies involved in #Syria abide by the 2401 #UNSC Resolution, emphasized "terrorists [in the area] continue their provocations"
2. Despite the UN vote #Moscow stands firm in its position:Western media campaign around East #Ghouta is "crocodile tears","they been silent on militants shelling of #Damascus for 2 years now that #SAA,RU go after militants (yes,not only HTS)everyone suddenly cares for civilians"
3.Yet the scale of humanitarian tragedy demanded urgent action.The decision to let civilians out seen as temporary fix since many radicals will flee along w/ them, amass in other parts of town,thus humanitarian tragedies where radical shild w/ civilians doomed to repeat
