Thread :

Let's agree on one important thing which is:
al-Hol camp which houses civilians is not the same camp that includes Daesh families. There is a section dedicated to Daesh families and a section for the civilians who fled hostility and Daesh,
Since the fighting against Daesh began in Deir Ezzor, tens of thousands of civilians were forced to flee their homes and cities due to heavy fighting in the west and east of the Euphrates. Most civilians fled to the areas controlled by the international coalition and the SDF.
Civilians fled because they categorically reject Assad, Daesh, Iran and Russia, but later their presence in al-Hol became a complex and bureaucratic issue that has strained all parties.
After fleeing to areas far from bombing and death, civilians sought refuge in an area near al-Hol and stayed there. The autonomous administration set up a camp for those thousands of people to house them in it as a temporary solution.
As for Daesh families, they are certainly in detention. Those are the families who surrendered after the liberation of Al-Baghuz, the last strongholds of the organization. Unfortunately many do not know or deliberately ignore this fact,
which has negatively affected the civilians living in the camp.
What I do not understand is that the autonomous administration in north-eastern Syria has established this camp as a temporary situation, but later the families living in the camp needed mediation from tribal elders and other figures to leave the camp.
When all the inhabitants are civilians, so why to keep them as long as they are not under investigation or arrest? This was a sticking point, and more than once,
I personally worked to get many of the civilian families whom I know from Al-Bukamal countryside out of the camp; "families from Ash-Shafah and areas near Al-Bukamal."
Today the decision to release these civilians is a positive one, but all have to know that some of these civilians will clash with reality as they were living in the west of the Euphrates but cannot return to their homes because of the presence of Assad, Russia, and Iran,
so where shall they go? Has any one thought about their fate?

Other families, who were living in Al-Bukamal villages and other areas of the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside will find out that their homes have already been ruined, and there is nothing left for them except the air,
so It is very necessary and urgent to work on:
Providing assistance and relief for these families, who will be released, through cooperation with local organizations involved in making urgent assessments.
Working to reintegrate these families with the community because they have been separated from their relatives for years and have been living in the limited area of al-Hol camp.
It would be an act of madness and irresponsibility to release Daesh families and mix the civilians issue with that of Daesh families as if they were one issue while they are completely different issues.

The fragile security situation in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside and the scandalous farce
A clear and explicit question..
Have the Kurdish leaders, the decision-making authority in the region, had a serious intention to establish security and stability in Deir Ezzor for two years until now?
Actually, none of this is tangible on the ground, all that is going on is just military campaigns by the SDF but at the same time, Daesh, Assad and Iran cells are intensively active in the region.

The position of Deir Ezzor's people regarding al-Baghdadi's death:

First, let us agree that the blood of those killed by #Daesh has not been wasted, regardless of the circumstances and who killed al-#Baghdadi, people have been satisfied, especially in #Syria.
In my hometown in the eastern #DeirEzzor countryside, Daesh killed more than 270 people during the fighting between the people of Deir Ezzor and #Daesh in 2013.
Young people in their prime, some of the best of Deir Ezzor's youths, were killed and tortured by Daesh before the international coalition was formed and before any international party intervene to stop this organization.

Many important files came all in one tweet.. please have patience and read to the end:

The most important:

Saudi file in Syria:

The recent visit of the Saudi Minister al-Sabahan to Syria was supposed to make a significant change to the Syrian reality,
especially regarding the reconstruction file, but until the Turkish invasion, nothing happened.

especially in #DeirEzzor in June 2019, everything was changed and KSA decided, because of its war against the Houthis, not to engage in new experiences,
especially in an area full of adversaries, this happened after they were greatly enthusiastic that the region should be ruled by its people's decision in partnership with the Americans,

I repeat it once again as repetition can be useful:

Opposing the Turkish invasion for several reasons:
The opposition, which is fighting alongside Turkey, left the Assad regime and Iran, and turned to carry out the agenda of some countries under the name of fighting YPG, PKK etc
This matter is between Turkey and these factions, and must not be at the expense of civilians in Syria, especially in our regions.
The issue of the repatriation and settlement of refugees through military battles and by force is not a guarantee and cannot be achieved.

The #Assad regime is gradually regaining a legitimacy, that it has been looking for for years,

Read to the end, please:

- "The Kurds will hand over our areas to the Syrian regime" a message that was circulated by Turkey, but it has been proved to Syrians that Turkey is the one who has been contributing to the handover of the territories to the Assad regime, not "the SDF"
,, whether by failing to maintain its "understandings" with #Russia or because of its acceptance of the repeated campaigns.

-The Syrian who wants #Turkey to expel the #SDF from the eastern regions should have second thoughts.
- Turkey has also prevented the Syrian opposition from coordinating with the Kurds against #Daesh, prevented it from many opportunities.

- Turkey is Russia's biggest gain in #Syria after ensuring Assad's survival and his regime and securing it militarily after 2015.

Qasem Soleimani's recent visit to Al-#Bukamal city and his inspection of the Iranian militias carries several messages, mainly:
- To reaffirm the promises he made to the elements and leaders of the Iranian militias when he visited #DeirEzzor in 2017-2018 during fighting against #Daesh, where he still repeatedly gives those promises of victory and the achieving of the goals set by the #Iranians.
- a message to the Syrian Democratic Forces (#SDF) "you cannot stand against us, no matter how powerful militarily you are."
- A message to the #USA that #Soleimani can move whenever and however he likes without being targeted "a kind of provocative act".
