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.

Video of IED detonation at #Gaza fence after it was placed by Islamic Jihad members awaiting IDF troops to come near it. #Israel
Wire cutters were left there to attract IDF soldiers to come near the IED so it would be detonated near them. #Gaza #Israel
A few more photos of the two dead. Seems the second PIJ member is too disfigured to be photographed.

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.
Losses:
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.

I hope you understand.

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."

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...

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.

NEW - #Ahrar al-Sham & Nour al-Din al-Zinki have merged, creating Jabhat Tahrir Souriya, branded with “green” revolutionary flag.

- Ahrar leader Hassan Soufan = leader
- #Zinki leader Tawfiq Shahbuddin = deputy

“JTS” calls on other groups to join for greater unity.
#pt: What does “JTS’s” formation mean?

- Unlikely to be a full merger, but closer Ahrar-Zinki coordinating ties have been clear for months.

- Northern #Syria’s two biggest non-#HTS factions are compiling (with Syrian Islamic Council backing) pressure on #Jolani & HTS.
I’m told that x4 sub-factions of #HTS have agreed to join the newly formed Jabhat Tahrir Souriya (#JTS) and at least x5 others are negotiating possible terms.
