Excellent write-up by J. Flores at FRN on Russia going along with western narrative over the IL-20 jet downed on Monday.
That French frigate Auvergne shot down the plane is a long shot, but #NATO wanting to sever #Russia#France ties is nothing new. fort-russ.com/2018/09/full-a…
Summing up the facts that led to, and followed, the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane.

1/ #NATO has strongly opposed the #Idlib campaign from #Syria & #Russia, warning a response to a chemical attack and then – to secure an escalation – on any attack. maps.southfront.org/now-u-s-threat…
2/ One #NATO member also strongly opposed to the #Idlib campaign, but for all different reasons: #Turkey reinforced its backed rebels in Idlib with support (after striking out the #HTS on its books) and weapons.

Shame on @marakeshfilms… whose excuses are just that.

Taking someone’s personal tragedies, framing them as fiction, and seeking fame & profit is predatory & vile.

Be ethical - boycott the movie ("Viper Club”) and donate to @JamesFoleyFund instead.

hollywoodreporter.com/news/viper-clu…
@marakeshfilms @JamesFoleyFund Disgusting, senseless & sadly ignorant behavior from @SusanSarandon - feeding false narratives & endangering those who pursue the truth.

Not to mention profiting off of journalists killed by #ISIS w/o a care in the world for their families.

What is the world coming to… #Syria
@marakeshfilms @JamesFoleyFund @SusanSarandon Former @washingtonpost correspondent in #Beirut, who spent years working on and reporting from #Syria.

Versus a Hollywood actress who called mainstream journalists who’ve worked on #Syria “traitors,” while acting in a movie exploiting the death of Western journalists by #ISIS.

1) Back in 2015 #Idlib was Syrian Governement stronghold.
On 24 of March of 2015 a Jiahdist Alliance started their offensive on the city
They called themselves Army of Conquest ( جيش الفتح/Jaish al-Fatah)

- Runs multiple CVE programs
Niet Buitenlandse Zaken maar het OM blunderde inzake al-Jabha al-Shaamiya - @RenaNetjes

- "Te suggereren dat al-Jabha al-Shaamiya hetzelfde is als AQ of IS is volslagen belachelijk. Wie tot die conclusie kwam, lijkt helaas niets te weten over de groep”

jalta.nl/?p=26648
@RenaNetjes Amid controversy in the Netherlands’ over the nature of #FSA umbrella group al-Jabhat al-Shamiya, its former Special Envoy, @nikolaosvandam insists on the record he never met with the group.

I know for a fact that’s not true - I was in the same room, on multiple occasions.

Tonight, the 1st of my 2-part series on #ISIS’s resurgence in Iraq airs on @PBS @NewsHour Weekend. In cooperation w/ @theIFUND, I spent 3 weeks traveling across 3 provinces to investigate the extent to which ISIS has regrouped after its official defeat last year.
In August, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi released a new audio recording in which he pointed to #Iraq as the epicenter of #ISIS's resurgence. The facts on the ground suggest that this is not just an ambition the group aspires to in the future - it’s already a reality.
ISIS attacks in the rural areas around Tuz Khurmatu, Kirkuk and Hawija aren’t an exception - they’ve become an almost daily occurrence for the civilians who live there. What’s more - #Iraq’s security forces appear ill-equipped to face #ISIS in its insurgent form.

#Lavrov now: De-confliction b/n #Russia & #US in #Syria wotking wrll, when there's a need Americans turn to us for explanations of certain things and we do the same
#Lavrov now: When we intervened in #Syria in Sep'15 #ISIS wad at the gates of #Damascus. Not a single power that are today raising voices about humanity, rights, etc moved their finger to prevent #Daesh from almost capturing the city & making it the capital of their caliphate
#Lavrov on @realDonaldTrump tweet on #Idlib: #Trump's right-we need to avoid a humanitarian crisis there. That's what we always try to do w/ humanitarian corridors & other coverups for civilians unlike Americans,say,in #Raqqa who just ironed the city. Now they want to cover Nusra

Those asking me on DM why and if #Iran is interfering in the formation of an #Iraqi government, have a glance at this tweet, said by the same #USA Sec of State:

"#USA forming a strong Iraqi government".
And in his tweet, Pompeo meant:
"Forming a strong Iraqi government on a national basis is essential to the enduring defeat of #Iran" rather than #ISIS.

And most probably the #USA will succeed. It has "convincing tools" superior to the one with Iran.

#BreakingNews:
#Iraq First parliament session started: President Maasoum arrived at the Parliament.

Ha ha ! Mr. Jamal openly defending and supporting #terror designated #MuslimBrotherhood who are nothing but a bunch of rapists & thugs !
In his this OpEd, he continues to show this empathy towards #MuslimBrotherhood leader #Morsi and glorifies #Politicalislam and says it has to be part of a government ! #Bullshit
The #Islamist- loving @JKhashoggi forgets that #ISIS is a direct offspring of #politicalislam and #MuslimBrotherhood offshoots !!
Yet he is happy to glorify them ...

Not going to translate Abu Bakr alBaghdadi #ISIS group leader because it is not worth it.

He tried to show how good he is in pronouncing the Quran Aya and how good he is in memorising the Quran and the Hadith.

In a few words: he is a loser trying to say he is in good health.
One thing worth mentioning: his voice is no longer pretentious as he was in 2014 and in September 2017.

He is just quoting many storied how in Islam defeat was also happened as a test to Mujahideen.

I hope this "test" continues until the end of ISIS.

Interesting day with three speeches:
1. HTS Abu Mohammad al-Joulani
2. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
3. John Bolton al-Amriki

Fascinating work by @HaidHaid22 - looking at initiatives (or a lack, thereof) by the #SDF & the #FSA to reconcile/rehabilitate/reintegrate #ISIS detainees in northern #Syria.

Really important backgrounder:

icsr.info/2018/08/20/rei…
@HaidHaid22 #pt: According to @HaidHaid22’s work for @ICSR_Centre, one’s decision to join #ISIS in #Syria was driven primarily by x4 factors:

1. Financial benefits
2. Protection
3. Military capacity
4. Ideology

Less than 20% of recruits joined for ideological reasons.
@HaidHaid22 @ICSR_Centre #pt: @HaidHaid22 raises a number of important questions for @CJTFOIR & its #SDF partner:

- Surging strains on the #SDF's makeshift prison network holding 1,000s of #ISIS prisoners, raises risks of eventual #ISIS attacks, aimed at replicating #Iraq’s 2012-3 “Breaking the Walls.”

Excellent appointment by @SecPompeo, hoisting up @WashInstitute's Amb. Jim Jeffrey as the new Special Representative for #Syria Engagement.

Key times ahead, vis-a-vis #Turkey, #Idlib, #Manbij, and potentially a renewed political process.
@SecPompeo @WashInstitute #pt: As #JimJeffrey is sworn in today, the U.S. is 48-72hrs away from initiating training of #Turkey’s armed forces in order to begin joint patrols around #Manbij.

American weapons & equipment already in #Turkey.

voanews.com/a/us-turkish-f…
@SecPompeo @WashInstitute BIG - The U.S. looks to be staying in #Syria - thanks to $300m of funding from other @coalition partners, including #Saudi, which will offset #Trump’s $200m cut from stabilization.

Recent DIA/DOD estimates on #ISIS also indicate a military intent to sustain a necessary mission.

La #Turchia bombarda #Sinjar ed uccide Mam Zaki, uno degli eroi che salvò decine di migliaia di #ezidi dal genocidio dell'#ISIS.

#thread
1) Una notizia terribile, l'ennesimo crimine atroce e disumano della #Turchia contro il popolo curdo.
Ieri intorno alle 16 un raid turco ha colpito alcuni veicoli (pare 3) delle forze di autodifesa ezide #YBS che stavano tornando dalla commemorazione del massacro di #Kocho.
2) Tra il 3 ed il 15 Agosto 2014 il villaggio di #Kocho nei pressi di #Sinjar rimane sotto assedio da parte dell'ISIS.
Tra il 15 Agosto e le prime ore del 16 Agosto i miliziani dell'#ISIS entrarono nel villaggio. Radunarono tutta la popolazione, circa 1700 persone, nella scuola.

Just now getting around to reading the @UN’s report on AQ & #ISIS.

Some “analysis” of its content on the AQ in #Syria issue has been skewed, to say the least - with some aspects aggrandized & others underplayed.

Report: undocs.org/S/2018/705
@UN #pt: What clearly emerges from the UN report is an AQ *movement* weakened by internal inefficiencies, the consequence of which => a clear AQC undermining of #Nusra/#HTS & empowerment of alternative, loyalists within groups like Nusrat al-Islam (Huras al-Din+) & Ansar al-Tawhid.
@UN #pt: One strange thing came up… the UN report says Sami al-Oraydi & Abu Julaybib’s defection from ‘#Nusra’ resulted in the creation of a “new group under the name of Ansar al-Din.”

Not to my knowledge.

Ansar al-Furqan? Yes.
Also Ansar al-Tawhid.

Ansar al-Din is old/unrelated.

DEVELOPING: #ISIS force strength now may be close to its peak in 2015.
As of June 2018, estimated 28,600 to 31,600 #Daesh fighters in #Iraq #Syria per IG report

US intelligence estimates had 33,000 #ISIS fighters at group's peak in 2015

h/t @nickglavin
The same report says there are about 200 #ISIS fighters in #Philippines

#ISIS caliphate gone but it's foot soldiers remain-as many as 32,000 #Daesh in #Iraq #Syria per latest @DeptofDefense intel

He’s traded with #ISIS; acquired land expropriated from displaced civilians; and become super rich out of #Syria’s conflict & destruction.

- Meet #Assad’s latest moneyman & likely route around international sanctions - Samer Foz.

wsj.com/articles/out-o…
Make no mistake, Samer Foz is an asset of #Assad's regime; empowered & facilitated by current & ‘retired’ security officials to get around tight foreign sanctions.

Foz has bankrolled militias in #Latakia & he stands accused of ordering the assassination of a rival in #Turkey.
#pts: Samer Foz also - allegedly - runs a quiet PR effort, both in the #EU & the U.S., which plays up one line over & over:

- 'Sanctions only hit innocent civilians & create terrorism… International investment is the key to saving #Syria, recreating jobs & bring back refugees.’

#Liberals accusing #Iranian govt of"oppressing women" who must wear a lose scarf,but do not protest against the #Saudi #Wahhabi reactionary dogma,while it's creeping as political #Islam to combat western #civilisation at the end.If it's sounds like fiction,think Saudi investments

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.

1/ Today is 4th anniversary of Yazidi genocide by #ISIS. Thousands of Yazidis killed &enslaved.

In Syria I found #ISISfiles, some on treatment of women by ISIS.

Here my story for @akhbar

It's in Arabic but in thread I'll explain in English
2/ The #ISISfiles about women can be divided into 2 categories.

a. Restrictive laws mainly meant to control local female population in ISIS parts of Syria.

b. Rulings regarding behavior of ISIS-female members. What work can ISIS-women do? Can ISIS-women fight? Etc.

@akhbar
3/ ISIS files show court cases whereby (male) ISIS “spies” accuse Syrian females of having attended "mixed" weddings (males and females attended wedding). Also women were accused of wearing make-up.
