IDLIB AXIS THREAD: Russian and Syrian war planes are smashing jihadists positions in #Hama province in preparation for a wider offensive against #Idlib province and adjacent areas. Lots of rumors flying around about the extent of the operation. Time will tell.
Syrian helicopter has smashed jihadist positions in Al-Latamenah city in northern #Hama province with barrel bombs.
Syrian Army artillery shelling are targeting jihadist positions on agricultural lands around Al-Lataminah town in northern #Hama countryside.
What happened in #Syria/n Air Force in #Hama
Nearby locals were burning the arid grass near the base
The fire spread to ammunitions which were deployed out side of depots
Minor explosions occurred then massive ones.
After the first explosion all the soldiers went to shelters.
4 ammo depots were completely destroyed.
Heavy equipment losses.
No martyrs only injures, because everyone took cover. #Hama AB contains no #Iran/ian forces, they left the base before the #Israel/i attack on the 47th brigade.
I reported previously that the incident occurred due to a malfunction while welding an aerial bomb, but it was false.
This is the correct and accurate story told by my source in the AB.
Thread: Here’s how the U.S led strikes on #Syria developed from here in the Capital #Damascus in the early hours of this morning
1. At around 4.30 Damascus time I awoke to initial large sounds of over 10 rocket attacks, it immediately was clear from the types of missile being heard that it was a Western Attack conducted by the #U.S #France & #U.K
2. The strikes were heard clearly in all parts of the Capital and continued on and off for a duration of 50 minutes, Syrian state media reported the strikes but didn’t provide information as to the locations
"A Bulgarian man has been charged in the United States with exporting aircraft parts to #Syria in violation of a U.S. embargo, the U.S. Justice Department said on Wednesday." reuters.com/article/us-usa…
Syrian state TV airs Wednesday's meeting between #Syria's Bashar Assad & Ali Akbar Velayati, int'l affairs advisor to #Iran's Ali Khamenei, claiming the meeting took place today.
Arab news agencies reported this meeting yesterday, saying Velayati returned to Iran.
I thought this would be a good reminder...
A Syrian child breaking down in tears saying Assad is killing us...
What did we do to him? #AnimalAssad
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.
Video from #Douma in #EasternGhouta, near Damascus in #Syria, shows three small children suffering after what is being described as a deadly chemical attack by Assad's forces.
Support from #Iran & #Russia, with Obama turning his back, has led to this horrible situation.
Orient TV, associated to the #Syria'n opposition, reports the number of casualties in the latest #Douma chemical attack has climbed over 190 deaths. #EastGhouta #Iran & #Russia must be stopped from supporting Assad.

We started a new year (I hope the last) of the Syrian civil war. But 2017 has been the most important year & the result of inflection point of the war in 2016 with many political & military developments : (1)
The first military operation of #SAA was Wadi Bara (23/12/2016 - 29/1/2017) which finished with the evacuation of rebels from Wadi Barada & the North montainous area in the border with Lebanon. At the same time other forces advanced in E.Ghouta reaching some parts of Hazrama (2)
