The statement indicated that the attack was carried out from over the Al-Tanf area and confirmed the deaths and injuries among the fighters of these militias. It also explicitly referred to an American role in this attack, and vowed to respond "very strong".2/6
This is not the first time that the so-called "Syria's Allies Operations Room" makes a statement. It has issued a number of previous statements, including the attacks of the #IDF on #Syria, and the battles of the city of #Aleppo against the Syrian rebels.3/6
Α source confirmed to me that yesterday's attack targeted two Iranian Quds Force bases in the vicinity of Palmyra, which included Iranian-made unmanned aircraft and advanced equipment for the manufacture of these aircraft.4/6

In fact, there is no actual presence of a gathering of fighters under the name "Syria's Allies Operations Room", but it is a name used by the Iranian Failaq al-Quds to direct regional messages without having an official status.5/6
The "Syria's Allies Operations Room" vowed to respond in the past, but nothing happened. However, the regional and American atmosphere today is different, and the idea of deterrence, which succeeded in #Lebanon and in the file of ships, might be applied in #Syria as well.6/6

Based on the complications and the Turkish officials high tone statements, the main question will be what are #Turkey's options in responding to what happened in southern Mari'? 1/6
#Russia #USA #Syria #Biden #Erdogan #Putin #Iran Image
The first option, #Turkey may move towards exploiting what happened to carry out a media attack on the #YPG militia preparing for a military operation in another area less sensitive to #Russia (Ein al-Arab - Kobane city for example).2/6 Image
This operation more likely will be coordinated with #Moscow in order to push the Kurdish militias in eastern #Syria to get closer to the #Assad regime and #Russia, as they are able to protect them from #Turkey.3/6 Image

In the United Nations upcoming vote on the decision of the of flow humanitarian aid, whether food or medical, through the liberated northern Syrian crossings, if #Moscow places its veto again, the scene will become horrific.1/10
#Syria #USA #EU #المعابر_شريان_الحياة
At the outset, it must be clarified that this ban will mean, in one way or another, the cessation of the flow of aid from most of international organizations, whether governmental or non-governmental, which work under the cover of the United Nations in general.2/10
Consequently, the population and displaced persons in the liberated north of #Syria, estimated at 4.5 million, will be deprived of about 90% of the volume of food and medical aid without the possibility to replace it from any organization or country.3/10
