#Syria 🧵:10 years into the Syrian conflict, the Syrian regime is still trying to twist the facts. Social media and mobile messaging apps have also made it easier for #disinformation to spread. If you spot any of the 👇myths in your feeds, call them out. europa.eu/!yXWTYB
Syrian officials blame the #sanctions to say that they prevent refugees from returning to a "safe" #Syria. In reality, the regime's security forces arrested many of those who returned to the areas under its control and forced many to enlist in the army. 👉 europa.eu/!yXWTYB
The Syrian regime claims that the sanctions are an economic siege imposed on the Syrian people, while Bashar al-Assad himself admitted that the crisis began years after the so-called "siege". Our sanctions target the Syrian regime and its allies.👉europa.eu/!yXWTYB
Reopening of embassies in #Damascus by Member States is not new. Any diplomatic presence does not mean the #normalisation of relations with the regime. Chargés d’affaires to Syria operate in a reduced capacity to carry out humanitarian and aid projects.👉europa.eu/!yXWTYB
The Syrian regime and its allies want the world to believe that the #chemical_attacks were orchestrated. In April 2021, #Syria lost its voting right at the #OPCW, in response to the regime’s use of poison gas against its own people. Know the facts 👉europa.eu/!yXWTYB
“The West supports terrorism” the Syrian regime says; While we are actively combating #Daesh threat through sanctioning its members and by participating in the @coalition against Daesh as a non-military member. We debunk this misleading info here👉europa.eu/!yXWTYB
Since day one, the regime presented inconsistent narratives about the killing of peaceful protestors. One day protestors in #Daraa were an "armed gang", another time they were “victims of individual mistakes”. The ultimate fact? Protestors were killed. 👉europa.eu/!yXWTYB

في محاولة لكسب الرأي العام والتأثير فيه يكرّر #النظام_السوري وحلفاؤه معلومات مضللة بشأن #الاتحاد_الأوروبي من أجل تحميله مسؤولية معاناة الشعب السوري. نفنّد في سلسلة التغريدات👇 بعض هذه الأضاليل. عند رصدها على مواقع التواصل أو التطبيقات الالكترونية، لا تترددوا في دحضها!
يتحجج مسؤولو النظام السوري بالعقوبات للقول بأنها تمنع اللاجئين من العودة إلى #سورية "الآمنة". ولكن في الواقع، اعتقلت قوات أمن النظام عدداً من العائدين إلى مناطق سيطرته وأجبروا الكثيرين على التجنيد. ندحض هذه المعلومة المضللة بالتفصيل هنا👈 europa.eu/!mvb7Pv
يدّعي #النظام_السوري وحلفاؤه بأن العقوبات هي حصار اقتصادي لمعاقبة الشعب السوري، بينما اعترف #بشار_الأسد نفسه بأن الأزمة بدأت بعد "الحصار" بسنوات. والعقوبات أصلاً مصممة لتستهدف النظام السوري وحلفاءه. ندحض هذه المعلومة المضللة بالتفصيل هنا👈 europa.eu/!mvb7Pv
