2/ Zoals u kunt zien is de tv-reportage in het Arabisch, maar draadje van @jenanmoussa met alle details in het Engels. Dus makkelijk te volgen.
3/ We vonden op 1 plek in Tabaqa zoveel #IS-documenten, dat we niet alles meer konden dragen. Tassen vol, ik had gelukkig rugzak bij. Heeft ons maanden gekost om alles te kopieren, vertalen, ordenen, organiseren etc.
#Breaking:An Israeli F-16 fighter has been shot down by #Syrian anti-aircraft fire on a raid to destroy Iranian facilities.
The Israeli military claims it shot down the drone and struck Iranian targets in #Syria after what it called a “severe violation of Israeli sovereignty.”
#Idlib: #ISIS has entered rebels held area in southern #Idlib after heavy clashes with #SAA forces. Simultaneously #IS tries to advance to the north, towards #SAA held Abu Dali & towards Rebels held positions in southern #Idlib.
Amaq media department which belongs to the Islamic State is & was always reporting neutral about enemy forces. They call SAA troops = Syrian Army, Iraqi forces = Iraqi army etc. But when it comes to Israel they call them "Jewish army"
#pt: The reason for this is easy. #ISIS wont recognize #Israel as state in using the term "Israeli army". They also wont use the word "Zionist army" because amaq is known for its neutral views towards enemy forces. So they called them the Jewish army.
#SRO - If we compare Day 1 to Day 16, the onlyreal and interesting advances by #Turkey suppletives and tanks are Bersaya and Bulbul town. It took three weeks for that. The maximum advance "deep" is 5.5 km (1).
#SRO - In the same time, to compare, #Turkey, in three weeks of Euphrates Shield, took control of a city, #Jarablus, a town, #Rai and maximum extent deep of 11 km. #Turkey clearly believed #YPG were weak as #IS... What a mistake... (2).
#SRO - Pro or anti, we must see facts : the Olive Branch operation is turning into a little Viet Nam situation for #Turkey. Just remember #Turkey lost... 0 soldiers in three weeks of Euphrates Shield. It lost already 21 in three weeks of Olive Branch and only for hills... (3).
