Daraa Cleaning Update: 45 Additional Terrorists Shipped Out to the North

 ARABI SOURI 

Daraa Balad green buses to evict ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorists to northern Syria

Daraa witnessed series of developments in the past 24 hours with the terrorists holed in its southern neighborhoods known as Daraa Balad stalling the implementation of the ceasefire and their buddies out of the area are escalating their terrorist attacks against the Syrian army and the civilians.

The second batch to be shipped out of Daraa Balad which was supposed to take place yesterday were evicted today, 45 terrorists and their families were loaded to the green buses and shipped to NATO pariah Erdogan of Turkey in the north.

These terrorists and those of the first batch are mainly not from the southern Syrian region at all, the first batch which was evicted the day before yesterday entered Turkey and some reports indicate they’re already on their way to Europe, the Europeans must rejoice now with the people they funded now coming to them, most of the terrorists removed already from Daraa in both batches are from the ISIS terrorist group which was serving as a buffer to protect Israeli settlers in the occupied Syrian Golan.

  • A Syrian Army soldier was murdered and 8 others injured in a terrorist attack that targeted a truck carrying food to the Syrian troops. The attack, a roadside bomb explosion, took place on the road connecting Nawa and Sheikh Miskeen towns in the western Daraa countryside.
  • Judge Faisal Khalil Al-Awadh was killed in front of his house in the town of Nawa in Daraa northwestern countryside, the terrorists on their motorbikes shot the judge yesterday evening, the judge specialized in real estate disputes succumbed to his wounds upon arrival to the hospital.
  • Several civilians were injured at the Al-Saraya barrier that separates the Daraa Balad district infested by the terrorists and the liberated area when the terrorists opened fire at them from their barricades behind the barrier. The civilians were gathered at the Al-Saraya barrier anxiously awaiting the terrorists’ eviction to return to their homes occupied by the terrorists.

Whatever the attempts by the terrorists are to impede the implementation of the ceasefire agreement to remove them from the southern region, the Syrian Army had made the final decision to clean it and restore peace to this strategically sensitive region and to allow more than 50 thousand Syrians to finally return to their homes after a whole decade being displaced in other Syrian cities.

Imperial NATO Chaos: Taliban Are Terrorists while al Qaeda in Syria Supported

MIRI WOOD 

USA good terrorists in Syria - bad terrorists in Afghanistan

The Taliban immediately moved into the Afghanistan presidential palace upon the exit of Ashaf Ghani, with his five million in cash, and possibly his wife, upon the US leaving the tattered country on a jet plane, not knowing when it will be back again. The ensuing hysteria among various factions of NATO imperialist hypocrites — politicians, diplomats, NGO’s, fake charities, media stenographers, underpaid mercenaries — has been so on the same page as to appear to almost be a form of coordinated chaos.

This relatively short piece will mostly involve the double standards of hatred of the Taliban and adoration of the al Qaeda terrorists in Syria, by the finely coiffed and overpaid unindicted war criminals.

Syria News reminds our readers of a few salient points: [1] The US has not officially declared war since 11 December 1941. Such a declaration can create all kinds of extraneous logistical problems, while engaging in invasion, occupation, slow or fast genocide without an official declaration can allow for res inter alios acta and other forms of plausible deniability. [2] Ronald Reagan did not call the Taliban “freedom fighters,” as they did not yet exist in their military formations; he invited the progenitor of the Taliban, the mujahedeen, to visit the White House, where he praised them as similar to the US founding fathers. [3] Ashraf Ghani was considered the president of Afghanistan since 2014, though he functioned more like the chief warlord of Kabul, possibly given his remarkable background that included being a high school exchange student in Oregon, getting a bachelor’s degree at the evangelical American University of Beirut, making the rounds through John Hopkins, the UN, World Bank, the Fulbright scholarship folk — which might explain that impressive net worth of between five and nine million USD in a least developed country that comes in the second to the last in poverty, with an average annual income of $500.

Reagan invited ”freedom fighters” mujahedeen to White House; “Mommy” stayed away.
Synopsis of 40 years of undeclared war in Afghanistan.
Ashraf Ghani has a spook-y history.

The author has just been made aware that Ghani’s background is even more malevolent. He has been involved with the Atlantic Council (which recently came into partnership with Big Brother, Facebook), the UN Democracy Fund, and the World Economic Forum Global Agenda.

In 2021, he co-authored a twenty-four page paper demanding that President Bashar al Assad be removed from office, employing the standard NATO lying propaganda as the cover story for supremacist regime change.

Had the corrupt US warlord not fled the Taliban with five million, one might suggest he also fell prey to that Assad Curse.

institute for state effectiveness

The UAE Foreign Ministry has announced that the Syria-hating, globalist, Taliban-fleeing Ghani and his family have been welcomed with opened arms, despite being almost as “dead broke” as were the impoverished Clintons when they left the White House.” The Ministry claims the five million USD report is “completely baseless,” “lies” (everyone who believes that may cast a vote in the comment sections).

We shall now take a look at a cross-section of the NATO hypocrites, outraged over the Taliban having taken control of the ‘abandoned’ Afghanistan, and compare their rage and wrath to their adoration and full support of terrorists in the Syrian Arab Republic. As these humanitarian bastards are cut from the same cloth of that colonial savior complex, the order of their listing is of no consequence.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), willfully joined the army in 2005, four years after 9/11, which was plenty of time for even the most naive to grasp that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11, time to know there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, that the con involved idiot Bush citing Tony Blair’s lies in his State of the Union Address, time enough to grasp that the destruction of the secular country was to enrich Dick Cheney’s Halliburton war machine. With flagrant amorality, he invaded Iraq, and did his part to destroy the country.

Cotton has ignored all requests by this author to investigate the Arkansas-based charity without charitable status, in its financial support of a chilling organization run by al Qaeda in Idlib, involving little girls garishly made up to look as though degenerates are pimping them on the dark net for pedophiles who should be locked up.

The same Cotton who recently called on Biden to bomb “every Taliban fighter in the vicinity of Kabul,” supported Trump’s war criminal bombing of Syria for al Qaeda terrorists in Idlib, cheered the US/UK/French bombing of Syria for al Qaeda in Douma, supported Trump’s criminal assassination of Major General Qasem Soleimani, gave full support to terrorists in Hong Kong murdering police and torching innocents, and approved of Trump appointing Langley boy Guaido as president of Venezuela — as though the former president were King George, appointing governorships.

He also called for deployment of US military on the streets to such down demonstrations after the George Floyd suffocation killing.

UNSG Antonio Guterres also went the round of fake teeth-gnashing, being “deeply concerned by accounts of human rights violations against the women and girls of Afghanistan” because of the takeover by the Taliban. Guterres was not Secretary-General in August 2013, when al Qaeda and Qattar’s al Jazeera raided villages in Latakia, slaughtering men and kidnapping women and their children.

He was, however, in office for one month at the time the remaining 57 women and their children were released from captivity in February 2017, in an exchange for arrested terrorists, in a moment long awaited. Guterres was utterly, silent when al Qaeda terrorists massacred upwards of 130 mostly women and children in al Rashidin during another terrorist-abductees exchange, 17 April 2017.

Why has Guterres never been deeply concerned by kidnapped Syrian women being driven around in caged trucks before being murdered for war porn? Why was he not revulsed by the sight of a near full-term baby surgically carved out of his mother’s womb, by terrorists?

atrocity

Were an award to be given for the most arrogant, two-faced, hypocritical, unindicted war criminal on Capitol Hill, it would surely go to Congressman Adam Kinzinger, likely jockeying for a presidential nomination. Previously seen on the Hill trying to squeeze out a couple of tears over 6 January, Kinzinger’s double standards are unprecedented.

He was a bomber pilot, which means that he used to fly over other people’s countries and drop bombs on them.

Now, he is devastated over the Taliban taking over Afghanistan and has shared a suicide hotline for veterans who invaded and occupied Afghanistan who might be depressed over this news.

In 2014, he held a meeting with terrorists — including an armed insurrectionist who supported ISIS terrorists and called them ‘brothers’ — in Turkey. Three years later, he tweeted an attack on Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who visited Syria and had a meeting with President Assad. He sadistically reminded her of Omran, neglecting to mention the child was kidnapped, painted in moulage trauma, and had his iconic photograph taken by the savage who was friends with the deranged psychotics who kidnapped 12 year old Abdullah Issa from a hospital, and cut off his head with a kitchen knife, and videoed the horrific atrocity (Kinzinger has never mentioned Abdullah’s name).

Omran’s sister was a distraction from the “iconic” intention of the photograph.

Original “iconic” photo included gray-painted siblings. Sis was cropped out. AMC is US-funded, with same initials as a

Al Qaeda FSA/Zinki branch kidnapped a child & proudly videoed themselves carving off his head.

Around the same time, he launched an anti-Syria congressional caucus, to support the armed insurrectionists, the criminally insane who slaughtered Syrian soldiers, and mutilated their corpses.

In late 2019, Kinzinger was so offended by Trump’s anemic tweet that gave a whisper of inference that maybe there might be a withdrawal, that he was giving apoplectic interviews condemning the possible ‘abandonment’ by Trump regime troops war criminally in Syria, of the terrorist, Obama-created SDF-NATO-armed-insurrectionists.

Kinzinger whined that they would be slaughtered by the “Turks” — secure in his arrogant knowledge that stenographer media would not point out that he held his meetings with terrorists in Turkey.

Peculiarly poetic, immediately after a Category 5 hurricane passed, the author found her notes on Kinzinger in a dirty puddle on the floor, among other, undefinable detritus.

Kinzinger on floor c rest of detritus

As our hypocritical, lying, warmongering ilk on the Hill flaunt their phony attacks of amnesia, and their deadly double-standards, we remind their constituents of the war crimes our taxes fund, the support that these politicians give to the criminally insane, and that our tax dollars arm these savages so that they are able to destroy other people’s countries.

NATO stenographer journalists have treated the world to the imperialist double standards of weeping for the fallen soldiers who invaded Afghanistan, and died there, allegedly fighting terrorists. These are the same supremacists who have supported terrorists in Syria, and who have defamed Syrian Arab Army soldiers who were killed defending their homeland from foreign invaders, within their sovereign borders — including the 83 SAA soldiers that Obama ‘accidentally’ massacred to protect al Qaeda terrorists in al Thardeh, Deir Ezzor. The same western supremacy media wailing over the western soldiers who died in Afghanistan — fighting the Taliban — were silent when Syria released the news of a mass grave containing the remains of 57 Syrian soldiers slaughtered by unknown sects of al Qaeda, discovered in al Raqqa.


soldiers
Unindicted war criminal Blair shows his respect for Brit soldier killed fighting Taliban.
Mass funderal for 83 Syrian soldiers massacred when Obama accidentally bombed them to assist al Qaeda terrorists.

It is a war crime to set up military bases in other people’s homelands without their permission. While Obama merely did the sneaky special operative forces invasion of the SAR, the Trump regime actually invaded with armed soldiers, to steal the oil, and to further arm terrorists and to increase armed insurrection — which are politician crybabies continue to wail about regarding 6 January — against the Levantine republic. The Biden regime, now partially under attack for the abrupt withdrawal from Afghanistan, leaving that ‘vacuum’ for the Taliban to fill (when not playing in the gym, or in the amusement park bumper cars).

The first two screenshots are self-evident. The third shows the degenerate necrophiliac tendencies of the al Qaeda terrorists the US taxpayer arms and funds. These not Taliban psychotics have decapitated a Syrian Arab Army soldier, and are having a fun time pretending to feed the severed head.

The schmuck with the cigar and the rifle is American terrorist in Syria, Brace Belden. A self-described juvenile delinquent, druggie, and young alcoholic who spent much of his time engaged in self-ejaculatory efforts, this criminal somehow found the means to leave his mommy’s home, travel to and illegally enter Syria, and bomb the sh*t out of everything, including helping to turn the city of al Raqqa, population pre-takfiri invasion, 800,00, into rubble.

American terrorist Sotloff is seen practicing with a ground-to-ground military weapon. Sotloff — absurd backstory and other American illegals’ fantastic backstories, here — was reputedly sold by his FSA terrorist friends to ISIS terrorists. Armed American terrorist Eric Harroun had an alleged non-combat vehicular closed head injury which gave him an honorable, medical military discharge. Despite not having put enough money into Social Security, he managed on a paltry disability income to find his way into Syria, where he embedded with the FSA and al Nusra, helping to engage in such freedom-ish things as bombing a military helicopter from the sky, and then stealing salvageable parts (upon returning home, he was arrested, then charges were immediately dropped and he subsequently and conveniently killed himself with a heroin overdose.).

In May 2017, armed insurrectionist terrorists thank the United States for sending them trucks loaded with military weapons, which they planned to use to slaughter SAA soldiers in the battle to destroy Deir Ezzor. The full video of gratitude, here. Please note that these chunks of human garbage succeeded in murdering Gen. Issam Zahreddine, not long after the gifts from Donald Trump.

Matthew VanDyke was reared by a single mother, yet after graduation, he had beaucoup funds to acquire a motorcycle and expensive camera equipment and then enjoyed the good life of traveling to various hot spots in the world, stopping in Libya where he helped al Qaeda destroy the country, before illegally settling in Syria.

From there, he proclaimed that there was no ‘Syrian revolution,’ that the fraud would collapse without the savagery of the “foreign” terrorists, that Jabhat al Nusra — comprised of mostly ‘foreign fighters’ — should be removed from the US, UN, EU terror lists. In between time spent sodomizing goats, he wrote to British intelligence operative Elliot Higgins that the ‘foreign fighters’ had chemical weapons and was prepared to use them and blame on President Assad, who was winning the war.

His recent concern over women under the Taliban rang a bit hallow, given his seduction of a naive, Syrian traitor, the star in his award-winning fraudumentary. Emails he exchanged with her suggests he instructed her in the art of fellatio, and then turned her out, and subsequently sexually harassed her (his hacked emails with her, and with Higgins, here).

A thinking mind might wonder that the NATO stenographers that went into a swoon over his 15 minute docudrama all missed the fact that these armed terrorists supported with US tax dollars had invaded, occupied, and destroyed countless homes of Syrians, though we have no evidence the indigenous habitants were slaughtered in the making of the movie.

The supremacist double-standards involving condemnation of Taliban terrorists and financial support of the various factions of al Qaeda deployed into Syria, are not limited to the rabid dogs of war on the Hill, but are equally shared by other NATO terrorist scum around the world — powerful mobsters who dumped their human garbage into the Levantine republic, to butcher its population, destroy its homeland, and then be killed off, so that they could not return to their filthy homes of birth. The U went so far as to write a paper on how various European countries could protect themselves from ”foreign fighters” come home to roost — though the 149-page report significantly lied about the numbers of human detritus dumped into the SAR.

In addition to providing glowing news stories on the criminally insane foreigners, Germany, France, Italy, and the UK were among the countries with the biggest pockets for arming the beasts with two legs.

These unindicted war criminals now so concerned about the Taliban in Afghanistan dumped in its pathogens, armed them, funded them, cheered their every crime. Italy went so far as to use its odalisques opératives phony kidnapping to launder $12 million to al Qaeda savages, under cover of a ransom story (the pretty Italian agents’ backstory also included in The Final Days of Armageddon missive.

Perhaps the most sanctimonious post Taliban power grab came from the great enucleator of the Gilets Jaunes activists, the criminal who arms and funds al Qaeda and bombs Syria for al Qaeda atrocities, the criminal who gasses his people and then projects his crime onto the beloved Syrian president. The little man throw a hissy fit claim that his words were “twisted,” and so his peeps added English captions: France and other U countries must “protect against large irregular migratory flows that endanger those who are part of them and fuel trafficking of every kind” (the French is not any more intelligible).

For the rabid dogs of war — in political office, or in media stenography work — there is never enough chaos, never enough Pavlovian tricks to set one group against another, along comes a warmonger to attack a war pimp, and the Business Insider immediately reported that a man politician had launched ‘out of context’ accusations against a woman reporter.

As the old Aretha Franklin hit goes, Who’s Zoomin’ Who? Both Cruz and Ward are indictable under Nuremberg Principle VI, Crimes against Peace (i) and (ii):

Crimes against peace applicable to the Taliban and the urchins who lie about Syria.

Cruz supported Trump’s war criminal bombings of the SAR for al Qaeda terrorists there. Ward — who only wears niqab when embedded with terrorists, be they Taliban or various sects of al Qaeda occupying Syria — has an extensive history of criminal propaganda lies, and multiple criminal entries into the Levantine republic to embed herself with (male) terrorists who have destroyed the country, who have kidnapped, raped, and butchered Syrian women, so the scam of sisterhood and or gender victimization were better shoveled elsewhere.

Ward was the first to whitewash al Qaeda — including foreign terrorists — when the savages changed their names and pretended to have gone through an amicable divorce. She subsequently spoke at the UN (seated next to SAMS liar and no longer in niqab), \essentially functioning as mouthpiece for al Qaeda terrorists with who she had criminally embedded herself, winning awards for interviewing foreign savages also illegally in the SAR. On 6 September 2016, she blew kisses to American illegal Bilal Kareem, former stand-up comic from NYC, who is embedded with foreign terrorists in the SDN list, who interviewed the degenerate head of the al Zinki terror gang who kidnapped 12 year old Abdullah Issa from a hospital, and hacked off his head with a kitchen knife. The degenerate lied that the child was a man, and that the poor terrorists had been under a great deal of stress.

UNSC never held a special meeting to condemn the kidnapping and beheading of 12 yr old Abdullah Issa
Abdullah Issa, 12 year old Syrian-Palestinian, kidnapped from hospital, moments before his heinous beheading with a kitchen knife.

The gruesome video of the child being tormented while asking to be shot in the head, instead, has been expunged from the internet — not because of its heinousness, but because: The psychopaths are funded by the US taxpayer; one of the savages was involved with bombing a bakery (while Channel 4 was criminally embedded with him. This video was also expunged, but a screengrab from it found here); and one of the deranged killers was a friend of the fake physician married to the woman whose fraudumentary was nominated for an Oscar early this year.

ward kisses to kareem

To be completely explicit, Clarissa Ward has been a proponent of regime change against Syria since the onset of the NATO Spring. She has consistently embedded with terrorists, and spoken as their mouth piece. She has never concerned herself with the horrors that Syrian women have endured. Anyone who claims that the warmongering Cruz has attacked her because she is a woman — spending time in her element, with terrorists, the recently the Taliban ones — is a low-level propagandist for a variation on war propaganda.

The western audience, trained over many decades of Operation Mockingbird, to eat the lies of warmongers, then beg, Please, Sir, may I have another, whose previously closeted sadoerotic fantasies pour out whenever it can feign sadness over countless atrocities, and slobber over outright lies, such as the incubator hoax funded by American taxpayers to dupe American taxpayers — is now being deluged with scary photographs of armed Taliban terrorists, some of whom drive around in trucks, reportedly terrifying Afghans, and threatening to kill, or outright killing of civilians, with alleged focus on women and girls.

The media manipulators now feign astonishment that the Taliban has come into possession of NATO weaponsSyria News has published countless reports on hundreds of millions of dollars worth of such weapons, abandoned by fleeing al Qaeda terrorists in the SAR — completely ignored by the double standard bearers of the MSM and corrupt political circles.

Similarly deranged-looking al Qaeda terrorists throughout Syria, armed with RPG’s and MANPAD‘s, have consistently been censored by the media stenographers, now in a frenzied outpouring of fear, regarding the Taliban takeover.

Were some of these last terrorists of Douma culled from the 1,239 death row inmates the Saudis dumped into Syria?


Journalistic integrity requires us to make note of the very curious terror warning ejaculated by the US Department of Homeland Security, on 13 August 2021 and in effect through 11 November. Though the Biden regime officially announced the beginning of withdrawal from Afghanistan on May Day, 2021, the squirrely declaration of the DHS was shoe-horned between the Taliban taking control of Kunduz on 6 August, and entering Kabul on the 15th.

DHS issued strangely inclusive terror warning prior to the Taliban taking control of Kabul.

The warning was unprecedented in an eerie form of inclusivity, a “diverse and challenging threat” from malign foreign influences, foreign terrorists, domestic terrorists, possible grievance based violence during the ongoing global pandemic in which perceived government restrictions over public health safety measures require all to dutifully say something upon seeing something.

Less than one week later, the obviously disturbed Floyd Ray Roseberry — with a history of financial difficulties — live-streamed threats to detonate his truck near to the Congressional Library, as he told the world his mother recently died of cancer, his wife cannot get treated for her skin cancer, and he cannot get treatment for his bad knees. He live streamed from his Facebook account until it was shut down.

It took almost 15 hours after his uneventful surrender, before US law enforcement official announced no bomb was found in his truck, “but possible bomb making materials were collected from the truck” (emphases added).

Not a Taliban supporter, but a domestic terrorist.
Domestic terrorist under financial distress Floyd Ray Roseberry fit most of the inclusivity in the DHS warning.

The author again reminds our readers that the NATO junta which controls the UNSC has repeatedly supported terrorists in and against the Syrian Arab Republic, has repeatedly lied in support of them, since the launch of the NATO Spring against the Levantine republic, in 2011.

These klan members — and NATO — have begun to issue warnings against the Taliban, not to engage in terrorist activities against their entitled countries.

Gosh, it is almost as though they have decided wave the proverbial red flag in front of the bull in the China shop (mixed metaphors are currently of some use).

Brit ambassador to UN warns Taliban.
Frog ambassador to UN says no money for terrorists…
…except, of course, al Qaeda in Syria.
US supremacist ambassador to UN warns Taliban.
Et voilà! NATO warns the Taliban.

The Taliban – related imperial chaos unleashed by NATO politicians and diplomats has only just begun, and will persist even as the criminal liars continue to arrogantly flaunt their support of terrorists in Syria.

***

The US-led war in Afghanistan looks to be ending, and not a day too soon. America’s father, Benjamin Franklin, wisely wrote: ‘No good war; no bad peace.’

Yet for 20 years, the United States waged all-out war against this small, remote, impoverished state whose only weapons were old AK47 rifles and the boundless courage of its fierce people.

In my first book about Afghanistan, ‘War at the Top of the World,’ written after being in the field with the anti-Soviet ‘mujahidin’ warriors, I called them ‘the bravest men on earth.’ Now, some 21 years later, I repeat this title.

For the past two decades, the Afghan nationalist mujahidin have faced the full might of the US empire: waves of B-1 and B-52 heavy bombers; fleets of killer drones, constant air strikes from US airbases in Afghanistan, Central Asia and the Gulf; 300,000 US-financed Afghan mercenary troops; up to 120,000 US and NATO troops and other US-paid mercenaries; the brutal Communist-run Afghan secret police, regular government police, Tajik, Hazara and Uzbek militias, hit squads sent by the US and Britain, plus famine and disease. Use of torture by western forces was rampant.

All this to defend the US-installed Afghan puppet governments whose main business was protecting the nation’s growing opium trade which made Afghanistan the world’s largest exporter of opium/morphine that was processed into heroin. Another proud moment for Washington which, in the 1970’s had been up to its ears in Indochina’s opium trade, and later in Central America’s cocaine business.

Afghanistan was a war of lies, sustained by the powerful US and British media. President George W. Bush, a man of deep ignorance, launched this war to cover being caught sleeping by the 9/11 attacks. Bush blamed Osama bin Laden, former US ally, and Afghanistan’s Taliban government for 9/11, though the Afghans were likely not involved with it.

The only proof of bin Laden’s involvement was a number of fake videos that I believe were made by Afghanistan’s Communist-run intelligence service or its former KGB bosses. When I pointed out these videos were fakes, CNN blacklisted me from further broadcasting. So too did Canada’s CBC TV and the Sun chain after I warned Canadian troops were being sent to Afghanistan under false pretenses.

Officially, the US lost 31,376 dead and seriously wounded in Afghanistan; Canada lost 158 dead; Britain 456 dead; the Afghans god knows how many. Estimates range from, 100,000 to one million. Two million Afghans reportedly died during the decade-long Soviet occupation. Almost anything that moved was bombed.

The known cost for this useless war was 2 trillion US dollars, plus hundreds of millions in secret payments to hire ‘volunteers’ from US allies to fight in Afghanistan. This was almost all borrowed money hidden in the US federal debt.

What next? The US is trying to find a way to stay engaged in Afghanistan via air attacks from its bases in the Gulf and possibly new ones in Central Asia. The world’s premier military power simply cannot endure the humiliation of defeat in Afghanistan, particularly so by a bunch of Muslim mountain warriors. All those US and British ‘experts’ who championed the Afghan war are now hiding their faces, as they did after the Iraq debacle.

America’s war party is trying to find ways to keep the conflict going by raising phony alarms about girl’s schooling, translators and woman’s rights. But we hear nothing at all from these pro-war hypocrites about the murder, rape and dowry killing of thousands of women in India each year. How many misinformed Americans know that Taliban was a religious movement formed to stop the rape of Afghan women and brigandage during the bitter 1990’s civil war? I was there and saw it.

What next? As US power wanes, CIA will try to bolster separatist movements among Afghanistan’s Tajik and Uzbek minorities. Iran will arm and finance the Shia Hazara minority. Still Communist dominated Tajikistan and Uzbekistan will support their ethnic brethren in Afghanistan. Most important, India will intensify intrigues in Afghanistan where its powerful intelligence agency, RAW, is increasingly active.

Meanwhile Pakistan quietly supports Taliban which, like a quarter of Pakistanis, is of Pashtun ethnicity. China for once does not know what to do in Afghanistan: it wants to block expansion of Indian influence in the subcontinent but deeply fears militant Islam and its rising influence in Chinese-ruled Xinjiang, formerly Turkistan.

So, Americans may have not seen the last of Afghanistan, one of the greatest follies of US foreign policy. To paraphrase the great Talleyrand, the US war in Afghanistan ‘was worse than a crime, it was a mistake.’

President Bashar Assad Takes the Oath for a New Presidential Term

 ARABI SOURI 

Syrian President Bashar Assad taking the oath

President Bashar Assad took the constitutional oath for a new presidential term yesterday, 17 July 2021, at the Syrian People’s Palace – the Presidential Palace in a highly ceremonial style and delivered one of his most direct speeches yet leaving no room for ambiguity in regards to the complete liberation of the country from NATO powers, Israel, and their proxies of Al Qaeda and the Kurdish SDF terrorists.

Syrian President Bashar Assad took the oath in attendance of dignitaries of the Syrian people, top state officials, army officers, members of the parliament, tribal notables, prominent artists of all arts, and intellectuals.

The ceremony started with the arrival of the president’s humble motorcade to the Presidential Palace to be received by the Guards of Honor walking him to the gates of the palace where he was received by the Syrian orchestra and then into the large hall with attendees jumping on their feet cheering their leader of victory over the most vicious and longest war of terror and war of attrition spearheaded by the world’s superpowers and super-rich countries resorting to all sorts of unthinkable massacres, genocide, displacement, and terrorism carried out directly by tens of thousands of terrorists on the ground and both directly and indirectly by the sponsors of the terror, the NATO member states.

For the full speech in Arabic visit SANA page.

Syrian President Bashar Assad taking the oath

President Assad was received at the podium by the Speaker of the Parliament who invited him to take the oath and declared the beginning of the new presidential term, the Syrian presidential term is for 7 years, after which, President Assad delivered his inaugural speech.

In his one hour speech, which was interrupted several times by the enthusiastic audiences delivering short poems, praises, and blessings to their leader, President Bashar Assad outlined his new term’s strategy in all fields starting with continuing to liberate all of Syria and maintain its unity, sovereignty, and territorial integrity, the liberation of all of the recognized Syrian territories including Idlib province, the last stronghold of Al Qaeda in Syria, Hasakah, Deir Ezzor, and Raqqa provinces where US troops and their Kurdish SDF separatist terrorists occupy parts of those provinces, and of course, the Golan.

President Assad emphasized on the unity of the Syrian people of their rich ethnicities, religions, sects, and cultures, he stated that Arabism does not eliminate other cultures rather unites them under the leading culture on the one united land of Syria, in the oath itself, the President swore to work for the unity of all the Arab nation, that means all the Arab world who share the same language, lifestyle, culture, tradition, history, and have shared aspirations and future.

The Syrian President stressed on economic challenges due to the regions that remain under occupation especially in the northeast of the country where Syria’s main food and oil comes from, the western blockade against the country, and the inaccessibility of the foreign currencies held by the Lebanese banks with an estimate of 40 to 60 billion dollars owned by Syrian businessmen who moved most of it into the neighboring country during the early days of the war on Syria for protection and to facilitate trade with the world.

President Assad highlighted the achievements of the Syrian industrialists who remained in the country during the difficult years of the war and continued to work, those who resumed working after their cities were liberated from the terrorists, and those who founded new businesses with thousands of new factories and tens of thousands of workshops all over the country. The need to solve the electrical power shortages was also mentioned by the Syrian president where he called on more investments in alternative energy sources even when the main Syrian oil and gas fields are liberated and restored, he mentioned a recent solar power project that was started in the past week in the Industrial City of Adra as a PPP (public-private partnership) with the initiative from the state and with the contribution of several private investors, the project will be generating 100 Megawatts enough to cover the industrial city’s needs which will allow the now used electrical power to be available back to the grid in order to lessen the hours of the power rationing.

The Syrian president called on those who chose to fight against their own state to drop their weapons and join the reconciliation and return to their normal lives and help rebuild their country offering amnesty and reminding that the most generous were the families of the martyrs who forgave the killers of their loved ones in order to turn a page on this ruthless war, there’s no future for those fighting the state except more bloodshed and inevitable victory of the people over terrorism and the international sponsors of terrorism. He called on the displaced abroad to return to their country which needs them and they need it.

President Bashar Assad thanked Russia, China, Iran, and other countries and parties who stood beside Syria politically, militarily, and economically which helped the Syrian people in their fight and victory.

Negative impact of NATO on Serbia & Montenegro and on the world

July 12, 2021

Negative impact of NATO on Serbia & Montenegro and on the world

by Batko Milacic – Independent analyst – for The Saker Blog

After Yugoslavia’s (Serbia) President Slobodan Milosevic refused to accept the so-called Rambouillet Agreement in 1999, which in reality was NATO ultimatum that demanded from Serbia and Montenegro to allow NATO troops to occupy the province of Kosovo as well as that NATO can build bases in Serbia, and that all NATO personnel have diplomatic immunity, which means that they could not be held criminally responsible in Serbia and Montenegro, NATO aggression was launched without any authorization from the United Nations. The intervention was called humanitarian under the pretext of stopping the persecution of Albanians. Western media machine led against Serbs constantly negative media campaign. In media presentations by CNN and the BBC, the Serbs were the modern Nazis and Albanians the Jews. After they successfully presented the Serbs as the bad guys, NATO had a free hand to open aggression and excessive force. Western claims about tens of thousands of killed Albanians later turned out to be completely false. The real death toll in Kosovo before NATO aggression was revealed after the war and it was around 2,000 with the majority of the killings committed by the armed terrorist-separatist group, the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA). The KLA, previously classified by Washington as a terrorist organization, was elevated in the run-up to the war as the sole legitimate representative of Kosovo’s Albanian population. The KLA, working in close collaboration with US sponsors, sought to create as much violence and death as possible in order to pave the way to Western intervention.

The war against Serbia and Montenego lasted for 78 days. Hospitals, factories and schools were destroyed, along with bridges, roads and military infrastructure. The airstrikes killed around 2,500 people and wounded another 12,500. The bombing destroyed and damaged 25,000 housing units, 470 km of roads and 595 kilometers of railroad were disabled. 14 airports, 19 hospitals, 20 health centers, 18 kindergartens, 69 schools, 176 cultural monuments and 44 bridges were damaged while 38 were destroyed, according to Serbian estimates.(1) During the bombing, 2, 300 air strikes were carried out on the 995 facilities across the country. NATO launched 1,300 cruise missiles, bombed Serbia and Montenegro with 37,000 “cluster bombs”, using prohibited ammunition with depleted uranium. The decision to bomb Serbia and Montenegro was made for the first time in history, without the approval of the UN Security Council. One of the NATO airstrikes used laser-guided bombs to take out railway bridge in southern Serbia, killing at least 10 people on a passenger train. A deliberate attack on the Serbian TV broadcaster RTS in Belgrade took lives of 16 civilian workers. This was the first case that the media house was declared a legitimate military goal. In one of the most provocative acts of the war, NATO carried out a strike on the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, killing three men. Washington claimed that the bombing was an “accident”.(2) The “humanitarian” intervention to halt “ethnic cleansing” has resulted in massive ethnic cleansing. After NATO arrived, 250,000 Serbs were expelled from Kosovo. (3)

Also, the 2004 unrest in Kosovo is the worst ethnic violence case in Kosovo since the end of the 1998–99 conflict. The violence erupted in the partitioned town of Mitrovica, leaving hundreds wounded and at least 14 people dead. The unrest was precipitated by misleading reports in the Kosovo Albanian media which falsely claimed that three Kosovo Albanian boys had drowned after being chased into the Ibar River by a group of Kosovo Serbs. That is why Albanians are embarking on a coordinated action against Serbs, in which they have committed numerous crimes. Given the magnitude of the action, it is clear that this ethnic cleansing was planned and not spontaneous. Here, too, the question must be asked whether it is possible that NATO intelligence services did not have operational information that Albanians were preparing attacks on Serbs, with the aim of ethnic cleansing of Kosovo. The answer is obvious, especially if we keep in mind that NATO forces have peacefully observed the ethnic cleansing of Serbs, even if their primary task in Kosovo is to maintain peace and order.

Years later, International courts in Pristina have prosecuted several people who attacked several Serbian Orthodox churches, handing down jail sentences ranging from 21 months to 16 years. However, these are extremely small numbers of people and with small penalties. The absolute majority of criminals were not punished. A part of the destroyed churches have since been rebuilt by the Government of Serbia and in cooperation with the Serbian Orthodox Church and the UN mission in Kosovo. However, almost none of the exiled Serbs returned to Kosovo. It is important to note that NATO forces have peacefully observed the ethnic cleansing of Serbs, even if their primary task in Kosovo is to maintain peace and order.

It is clear to every objective analyst that NATO carried out aggression in 1999 against Serbia and Montenegro. Everything that happened after 1999 proved that NATO’s primary goal was not the protection of human rights, but the abuse of this idea for classical geopolitical possession of strategic space, in this case, the southern Serbian province of Kosovo. The Serbian army fought heroically in Kosovo and it was not defeated on the battlefield. The withdrawal of the Serbian army from Kosovo was caused by an open threat from the West that it will exert over Serbia humanitarian destruction of the whole country. When the destruction of infrastructure did not gave results, NATO began hitting hospitals, trains full of passengers and throwing away so-called graphite bombs that destroyed the electrical network and left entire cities without electricity. Cluster bombs were thrown in the cities, and bombardment of depleted uranium kills Serbs even today.

NATO forces continued aggression on the rest of Serbia, by other means. Immediately after the bombing the regime change operation was supported, after which embassies of Western countries and international organizations that the West controlled began to “reform Serbia”. Shortly after the arrival of pro-Western authorities in Serbia, in October 2000, “the reform of the Serbian army” began. The majority of proven war officers were retired, while the number of soldiers was so low, to the level, at which the security of the country was seriously threatened. Through its agents of influence, the West played a major role in separating Montenegro from Serbia. High and primary education were, and still are literally destroyed, media has been dominated by foreign corporations. Yet again, two decades later, despite its propaganda and corruption of the elite, NATO is still undesirable among the ordinary people. Montenegro became a member of NATO by political violence, against the will of the citizens. Serbia and Republic of Srpska continue to resist.

Gaza Fails to Get UNSC Humanitarian Corridors Reserved for al Qaeda in Idlib

 MIRI WOOD 

Israel Jewish terrorist settlers lynch Palestinians in Palestine

Gaza was at the center of the special United Nations Security Council VTC meeting on Sunday, 16 May, to debate the “senseless cycle of bloodshed” [in a vacuum] and other forms of “destruction between Israel, Palestinians in Gaza.” The NATO junta controlling that bastion of peace and security engaged in collective shedding of its infamous crocodile tears, expectedly reaffirmed support for Israel’s ‘right to self defense,’ and made a few sotto voce sounds about humanitarian access. This junta has again shown that its double standards are part of its imperial geopolitical goals, as the klan has never been reserved in its demands for al Qaeda to have such corridors in Idlib.

The arrogant false equivalency of a country with a full army, air force, and navy, and an occupied peoples struggling against what Professor Francis Boyle once described as “slow genocide,” was not unexpected; nor was the mealy-mouthed humanitarian concerns voiced at the UN Forum on the Question of Palestine, two days later.

UNSC held special meeting on false equivalency of Israel and Palestinians.

As is the tendency of the NATO junta to use asymmetrical language to cover obvious bias, virtually all members of the debate team called for an immediate ceasefire, in lieu of the accurate cessation of hostilities.

His Excellency, UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres addressed the “open debate” quite somberly, found the both sides “senseless cycle of bloodshed, destruction between Israel and Palestinians in Gaza” “utterly appalling,” and demanded — with somber face –they immediately stop, lest there be a humanitarian crisis and destabilization of the region, and an end to the [non-existent] negotiation for a two-state solution.

Tor Wennesland is the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process. He stated that: Unnamed “military operations” (IDF bombing of civilian areas) had caused the “humanitarian and security situation in the densely populated Gaza Strip” to become increasingly dire every day; that 34,000 have been internally displaced; that forty UNRWA supported schools have been turned into shelters for the displaced (who have been bombed out of their homes); that “As a result of the [Israeli] military [bombing] operations, seven factories40 schools, and at least four hospitals sustained complete or partial damage;” that “At least 18 buildings including 4 high rise towers [apartment homes?] including one housing international media outlets, have been destroyed, and over 350 buildings damaged [by Israeli bombings] [emphases added].” As part of the NATO junta, Wennesland dutifully reported that “[a]ccording to the IDF, these buildings contained Hamas military installations.”

He did not mention that forced displacement, including bombing people’s homes, that destroying schools, and that destroying hospitals are war crimes. Wennesland’s blase census of bombed schools, forced displacement, and the obliteration of actual hospitals in Gaza, might be compared to the countless, war criminally lying, anti-Syria NATO klan-led meetings before the Security Council, particularly those involving fake hospitals, unhospitals, staged hospitals where kidnapped Syrian children have been painted by moulage trauma artists, alleged hospitals where the unlicensed Mengele’s brag about performing surgeries without anesthesia.

Truly utterly appalling was SG Gutteres’ ongoing false equivalency as he shed his hypocritical and crocodile tears over the phony “both sides” narrative, utilizing his western supremacy to ignore Israel’s blatant war crimes, and also his acute amnesia over his obsessive demand for various borders to be opened against Syria’s will, in order to ensure humanitarian corridors for al Qaeda in Idlib, a convenient amnesia that caused him to negligently state that such corridors be opened for the suffering, newly homeless, internally displaced, and hospital-less civilians of Gaza.

Only al Qaeda counts, not homeless and hungry and displaced people of Gaza.

Border crossings for al Qaeda in Idlib a frequent demand by Gutteres — via UNSCR 2165 (2014) — who did not mention humanitarian corridors should be opened for people in Gaza.

Utterly appalled, but not enough to demand humanitarian corridors be opened for Gaza, as the SG has many times demanded they be opened for al Qaeda in Idlib.
“Utterly appalling” “[F]ighting must stop.”
Though he did not use the words, SG Guterres appeared ‘utterly appalled’ when he arrived at the impoverished Caribbean island to lecture St. Lucians about cyclical sargassum and climate.
His Excellency SG Guterres has never mentioned being ‘utterly appalled’ that Tony Blair has never been indicted for war crimes.
Appalment likely assuaged when ‘former’ Portuguese colony with Portuguese name, East Timor, separated from Indonesia.
Bat Yam, not Gaza, but Guterres didn't speak of being utterly appalled by the rabid mob
SG Guterres did not voice being utterly appalled by the brutalization by rabid mob of Palestinian man in Bat Yam.

Syria News will also take a short look at other NATO klan members and their various House Servants, but given that the ridiculous collective script that the new round of war crimes perpetrated by Israel against Palestinians, with special focus on death, forced displacement, destruction of schools and hospitals in Gaza, and that — somehow — deadly hostilities magically erupted, from a vacuum, possibly related to an emotion called hate, we shall first share a few videos to demonstrate actual causation.

On 2 May, Eastern Orthodox Palestinian Christians attempting to celebrate Easter at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, were not only turned away by IDF, mishtara, and assorted other Israeli police, but were brutally beaten, knocked to the ground, hit with batons.

Such an immoral and brutal attack — missed by the NATO junta at the UN — was followed by a series of home evictions with phony religious, true psychopaths in blasphemous breach of the mitzvot of Torah seen throwing Palestinians out of their homes in Sheikh Jarrah (with the help of Israeli police, in many cases), and bragging about stealing these homes, then followed by Netanyahu unleashing rabid savages to invade more homes, beat and murder the people living there, mobs of psychotics beating a Palestinian man nearly to death — all of which Antonio Gutteres and his gang completely missed.

Then there was the inconsequential incident of the attempt to torch Al Aqsa Mosque, while Israeli men watched and danced and cheered in the nearby Kotel. Israeli media actually claimed that it was a tree that somehow caught fire, and that the degenerates looking in the direction of the flames did so by pure coincidence, as they were actually there honestly celebrating Shavuot.

Let us not omit the following video — that SG Gutteres should have found “utterly appalling,” were he not part of the NATO klan of the UN. It contains the Israeli killer wannabe who sped up his car to run over Palestinians, jumping the concrete Jersey barrier to hit them, and who was then protected by the IDF or militarized police; the zaftig gentleman with the NYC accent who graciously explains to the Palestinian woman why he has the right to have stolen her home; a Palestinian George Floyd dragged from his home; a group of women being battered by the Israeli cops who learned the wrong things from the Nazis (slight paraphrase from a comment in a petition of Jews to the then Mayor of Jerusalem, condemning the massive demolition of Palestinian homes. One signatory commented he was a child of the shoa, then added: “Natzi schmatzi! You learned the wrong thing!”); IDF’ers shooting tear gas, shock grenades, and other deadly projectiles into al Aqsa mosque, filled with worshippers.

Civilized human beings are horrified at the brutality, the home invasions and thefts, the military storming of a house of worship, and the firing of weapons by an armed military inside such a sacred place (who, in his or her right mind would consider sending the military to fire shock grenades and other weapons into St. Peter’s Basilica because of large numbers of worshippers on Christmas Eve?)

Along with the other NATO junta members who have taken over the United Nations, Wennesland ignored all of the above videos of various forms of atrocity, ethnic cleansing, indecency, and prattled on about phony equivalency. He gave perfunctory lip service regarding the deaths of generic “Palestinian families stuck inside their homes,” while bringing us emotionally closer to “a five-year-old Israeli boy in Sderot, and a father and daughter in Lod.” He normalized IDF wounding and murdering of flag-waving demonstrators in Lebanon as somehow a legitimate response to rockets allegedly fired from Lebanon into the sea.

UN NATO klansman normalized atrocities as “clashes,” normalized Israeli military storming a house of worship because of Ramadan.
Spec. UN NATO klansman Wennesland normalized IDF wounding and killing flag wavers in Lebanon.
Not Gaza, nor the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Imagine a military firing weapons into St. Peter’s Basilica because of extra worshippers revering Christmas Eve services.

One after the other, the ruling tripartite aggressors of the P3 ruling junta of the United Nations, feigned concern over Gaza again being bombed to rubble, ignored all of the evidence seen in the above videos, and demonstrated their double-standards which condemn Syria for defending its citizenry, laud Israel’s right to self-defense (which every country inherently and per Geneva Agreement of 1949, has), and inferred that persons living under brutal occupation have the same military ability as the occupier.

In addition to France’s overflowing crocodile tears, French media subsequently made an absurd claim that the US ”vetoed” its draft resolution, kept hidden from all, despite the fact that UNSC resolutions must be submitted to the Security Council, and afforded a vote, before any resolution can be vetoed (this author has no idea what kind of geopolitical shade France may attempt to throw).

None demanded that a humanitarian corridor be opened by Israel, to bring in medical supplies, and foodstuffs to the besieged people of Gaza, though the unsubstantiated claim was made that Israel was ‘forced’ to close such a corridor because of ‘sniper fire.’

The US Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield — who practically brought in MGM casts of thousands to lie about fraudulent hospitals in Syria and wail about humanitarian corridors to feed al Qaeda in Idlib, while ignoring America’s criminal sanctions, including the phony Caesar Psyop Act, finally passed by stuffing it into the renewal of the fascist NDAA, in March and in April — showed her concern over bombed hospitals and hungry people in Gaza, via her singular tweet on the UN “debate.”

The UN NATO klansmen “open debate” was followed two days later by the imperialist-named UN Forum on the Question of Palestine, led by former US ambassador to the UN, Rosemary DiCarlo, and the diplomat notorious for “hearing voices” and being caught in outright lies at anti-Syria meetings, Mark Lowcock (those interested in knowing exactly what Lowcock said may follow the hyperlink, below. Those interested in his war propaganda history against Syria can follow the tag in the Syria News search engine.).

DiCarlo has addressed the UN during previous anti-Syria meetings, and has always been forceful in her demands for foreign entities to forcefully open humanitarian corridors for al Qaeda in Idlib, forceful in her support of hospitals that do not exist in terrorist-controlled areas of the SAR, forceful in her demands for the imposition of a new Constitution on Syria. In her imperial address on 18 May, she burped up some useless words such as “regrettably,” “both sides,” “tragic reminder,” “unprecedented,” and barely found the energy to cluck that “humanitarian needs are bound to rise considerably, particularly in Gaza, where the situation was already desperate…”.

Not surprisingly, she did not mention the cause of the desperation, nor did she demand Israel open ”humanitarian corridors,” nor did she demand a constitution (despite the creation of Israel being contingent upon a constitution — among other trivialities — 70 years later, it still does not have one).

Macron’s unsuccessful attempt to censor protesters against the attacks on Gaza , the theft of homes in Sheikh Jarrah, and criminal invasion of al Aqsa.
Thomas-Greenfield tweets undisturbed by Israel’s bombing of Gaza.
Rosemary DeCarlo’s 18 May statement of concern was a bit rote.
Touching symbol of UN hypocrisy

After intentionally failing Gaza, will the UNSC klan dare again to demand humanitarian corridors to al Qaeda, in Idlib?

APPENDIX

The tripartite aggressors ruling the UN — France, US, UK, the world’s leaders in war crimes and genocide — along with their House Servants, have a very long history of ignoring the crimes of their welfare queen whose job is to destabilize the Levant, and surrounding areas of the African continent. They have ignored every atrocity perpetrated by their apartheid regime.

Baseem Abu Rahme was a pro two-state Palestinian living in the other open air prison, Bilin. He was at every weekly demonstration against the encroaching apartheid wall. On 17 April 2009, the IDF shot him in the chest with a tear gas cannister used as a projectile, and he died immediately from the physiological shock.

Chava Keller lost all of her family to the Nazi camps. At the age of 14, she spent a night in frigid water, hiding from the Nazis, before making her way to then-Palestine, where she subsequently lost her “Zionist dream.” At the age of 77, the IDF shot her in the arm while she attended a demonstration against the occupation. The photograph taken in June 2006 was outside the Defense Ministry, in Tel Aviv, where hundreds gathered to condemn the massive bombing campaign against the people of Gaza.

Roni Bornat had attended a demonstration in Ramallah, where the IDF shot him in the neck with a live bullet, which made him a permanent quadriplegic. He also attended the weekly Bilin demonstrations, joined by various Israeli activists. In the third photo, Israelis Michaela and Limor Goldstein walk with him to fence ‘protected’ by the IDF and mishtara.

These two Israelis assisted this writer who was protected from physical injury of a shock grenade, by the huge boulder seen in the fifth photograph; assistance was mostly in helping to reorient temporarily scrambled brains from the shock.

Less than two months later, the IDF entered deep into Bilin, threatening both Palestinians and their Israeli supporters, and shooting into the crowd of unarmed demonstrators. The IDF shot Limor in the head with a rubber ball, on 8 August 2006. Video included, here. Michaela is seen pouring water on Limor’s head, and is heard screaming for an ambulance.

The UN klan also ignore various rabbis opposed to the Israeli occupation of Palestinians, and to the very apartheid wall.

Russian Forces Blow-up NATO’s Terrorists Massive Fortified Tunnel in Idlib

 ARABI SOURI 

Russian forces destroy a tunnel in Idlib

Russian forces used 5 tonnes of explosives to destroy a massive network of heavily fortified tunnels in the liberated parts of Idlib last Tuesday 23 March 2021.

Roman Bessmertni, the head of the Engineering unit in the Russian force group in Syria explained how sophisticated the tunnel network was with chambers of specially designated purposes built over an extended period of time.

US-sponsored Al Qaeda assorted groups in Syria have relied heavily on tunnels for their hideouts and movement to carry out their terrorist attacks and targeting of infrastructure including large hospitals without being detected by the Syrian forces. The Al Qaeda terrorists used advanced technologies and even state-of-the-art drilling and boring machinery provided to them by the very generous NATO member states whose own countries suffer serious issues with their infrastructure.

The blowing up of the tunnel caused a minor tremor that was felt over an area of 1 square kilometer, this tunnel was built deep in a mountain and is connected to a network of tunnels extending for more than a kilometer and included weapons and munition depots, fortified observation and firing points, and warehouses where the terrorists hid the food and medicine supplied to the people of Idlib but were ‘entrusted’ to Al Qaeda terrorists for its distribution, naturally, such trust ended up, as in every other town the terrorists infested in Syria, with famished populations under their control.

TV Zvezda mentioned that the tunnel sustained a bomb of half a ton in a previous attack, the bomb couldn’t even penetrate the ceiling of the tunnel.

The Syrian army and its allied forces cleaned large parts of northwestern Hama and southern Idlib provinces before the Turkish Madman Erdogan begged Russian President Putin to halt the advance of the Syrian forces and promised to dismantle Al Qaeda and its affiliated terrorist groups in the provinces crying that his country will not be able to cope up with an influx of heavily armed and highly trained suicide terrorists as a result of the liberation of Idlib. Since then, the hypocrite and unindicted, yet, war criminal Erdogan only beefed up the terrorist groups with more terrorists and weapons and even sent thousands of the Turkish Army, NATO’s second-largest army, to stand as cannon fodders and human shields in front of the terrorists and in the face of the Syrian Army which he was hoping that would drag his NATO partners when Turkish soldiers get killed while defending Al Qaeda terrorists.

SDF Wetworkers Engage in Mass Kidnappings of Young Syrian Men

MIRI WOOD  

Bomb detonated in front of Virgin Mary Church - Qamishli - Hasakah Syria

SDF armed terrorists, secessionists, unindicted Nuremberg criminals have engaged in mass abductions of young Syrian men from al Raqqa and al Hasakah governates. Over the recent two days, these savages kidnapped over 200 young men, taking them to concentration camps for purposes of turning them “into killing machines by the CIA and its contractors,” all criminals.

These US armed terrorist secessionists continue to breach all forms of International Law, including vicious attempts to ethnically cleanse indigenous Syrians from their homeland.

The US created killers ambushed mosques — grabbing young men after prayer — in several towns of al Raqqa, to “forcibly recruit” young Syrian men into their depleting ranks between Friday and Sunday.

https://goo.gl/maps/q56yV6fq5L55t61S6

From SANA:

In Hasakah southern countryside, local sources indicated that the militia launched a campaign of raids in the town of Arisha and the village of Twaimin in Hasaka southern countryside, and kidnapped a number of civilians and took them to their camps and positions in the same countryside.

https://goo.gl/maps/SPyQ8oiw85ACiQQc7

“In the framework of its continued crimes which aim to tighten the noose on the locals, QSD (SDF) militia on Saturday kidnapped a number of civilians in separate campaigns of raids that targeted the locals’ homes in al-Yarubiya area and Tal Hamis town in Hasaka, and al-Mahmoudla village in Raqqa western countryside.

There were no reports of the lawless SDF murdering anyone trying to escape or prevent the mass kidnappings, as has happened in the past.

As unindicted war criminal Hillary Clinton (Iraq, Libya, Syria) and Council on Foreign Relations member daughter are prepping to launch a propaganda drama series on ‘female Kurdish militias’ to help Americans cheer more war crimes, we offer a short refresher on the origins of the separatist, murderous, blood-lusting, wetworking SDF.

Upcoming propaganda tv show to keep Americans cheering destruction of other people’s countries.

US Americans have become the best at being hypnotized by mass media propaganda in all forms; the porn freaks among them devour war propaganda, especially involving women. This show will be a pathetic hit.

The Kurdish people are not indigenous to Syria. Many Syrian Kurds are descendants of those who first fled genocide in Turkey, and were graciously taken in by Syria; the martyred Sheikh Saeed Ramadan al Bouti — killed in mosque, during prayer, after having called the FSA terrorists “scum” — was born of Kurdish origins, born in Turkey.

The YPG is/was an armed faction of separatist Kurds in Syria, who believed they had the right to steal a chunk of land in a country that took them in, and protected them from being slaughtered. The YPG was on the US terror list. The Obama regime did not want to remove the YPG from this terror list, and so convinced the rag-tag terror gang to change its name, for remarketing purposes which were to include fake heroism.

The US demanded the separatist armed Kurds change their name.

Obama oversaw the bringing together wetworkers from around the world, to fight ISIS in Syria, which is not in the US, to fight the same ISIS that the US created. This was, and remains, the imperialist cover for the ancient military strategy to divide, and conquer — Syria, not DAESH.

Here is a sampling of phony SDF leaders — and the bogus of the altruistic — foreign NATO wetworkers:

syrian-democratic-forces
Brit operative ‘joined’ the US wetworkers called Syrian Democratic Forces.
“Then we just bombarded the shit out of it [Raqqa].” “I’ve literally done nothing in my life but jack off before I came here.” — American terrorist & human garbage.
No mention of him being armed in a foreign country.
An illegal Swede in Syria: SDF ‘leader.’
Imagine the US being illegally entered and occupied by a foreign military force. Would msm normalize such a criminal aggression?

Obama brought in human garbage from around the world to create the SDF; Trump brought in the military. Both presidents are indictable under Nuremberg statutes for crimes against humanity.

The Trump regime outdid Obama’s war crimes; where Obama dumped scattered riff-raff into Syria, unobtrusively slipped in a couple thousand “special operatives” on that down-low, and named the killers for hire — that is what wetworkers are — Trump set up military bases, bragged about stealing Syria’s oil, and used the stupid separatist Kurds as cannon fodder, to divide, conquer, balkanize Syria.

The giddy goose in the photo, below, is Virginia Gamba. She is the Special Representative of the Secretary General (SRSG) for Children and Armed Conflict — a topic so significant that the UN forced it into an Arria Formula meeting, 29 January, a meeting not addressed by SG Guterres, who merely listened in. Gamba was quite somber for that occasion.

Gamba’s excitement, below, involves the signing of the “so-called June 19 Action Plan” — another attempt by the klansmen who have usurped the United Nations and shredded its noble Charter — to legitimize armed separatists against Syria. Abdi signed a treaty in agreement that the [US created, owned, armed] SDF would halt forcing children to become soldiers — such a stunning breakthrough given that the Geneva Agreement declared ”recruitment” of children under 15 a war crime, decades ago (IHL database, Rule 136. Alas, there is that annoying loophole, that armed terrorist/secessionists against a de jure government are not signatories to statutes on International Law and war crimes.).

un-goosy SDF terrorist commander Mazloum Abdi
Another UN breach of its own charter: Signing an agreement with an agent of the US in Syria. There exists no such place as “Syrian Kurdistan.”

Please pay particular attention to this paragraph from the Declaration on Principles of International Law concerning Friendly Relations and Co-operation among States in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations (html, here; pdf, here.), October 1970:

The principle concerning the duty not to intervene in matters within the domestic jurisdiction of any State, in accordance with the Charter. No State or group of States has the right to intervene directly or indirectly, for any reason whatever, in the internal or external affairs of any other State. Consequently, armed intervention and all other forms of interference or attempted threats against the personality of the State or against its political, economic and cultural elements, are in violation of international law.

According to United Nations documentation, the meeting between an armed insurrectionist against the de jure government of the Syrian Arab Republic and Gamba et al. — which includes SG Guterres — is in breach of International Law. According to the UN, all breaches of International Law are war crimes.

war crimes
UN leaders who meet with armed insurrectionists are in breach of International Law, and therefore engage in war crimes according to the UN.

Though loopholes appear to be the function of the NATO supremacists that have hijacked the United Nations, utilizing the ancient divide and conquer strategy to crush sovereign nations not affiliated with NATO, the US-created, armed, and protected SDF fulfills the criteria of IHL definition of war crimes.

The SDF engages in war crimes in Syria.

The SDF war crime of kidnapping has been constant, though the past weekend’s numbers are among the highest, and part of this criminal gang’s plot to fulfill the larger war crime of ethnic cleansing of indigenous Arabs from their Syrian homeland. Other kidnappings have included a Baath Party leader from his doctor’s office, another large group of young men from Deir Ezzor and Hasakah villages, early last month, kidnappings in January.

In August 2018, the US-run SDF fake police shut down Christian schools in Qamishli (this was during the time that the State Department started wailing about religious freedom), and shortly thereafter a vehicle was blown up outside the Church of the Virgin Mary. The following month these fake police massacred 13 Syrian security personnel.

Throughout much of January and February, the US-owned SDF terrorists utilized the war crime of cutting off food to the locals in Hasaka, a siege which was temporarily halted after 20 days of empty bakeries and water deprivation, and protesting Syrian Arabs being shot at. This was a follow-up to the malignant criminals’ rampages of stealing Syrian farmlands last summer, and torching farmlands of wheat they were unable to purloin.

Al Hol was originally a camp for IDPs, internally displaced persons forced to leave their homes and neighborhoods because of the terrorism of FSA and other al Qaeda moderates fighting to destroy Syria. It has been renamed al Hol Hell, since it was taken over by the SDF terrorists — as usual, under the protection of the now Biden regime criminal troops, American illegals militarily occupying parts of the SAR. The separatist, secessionist war criminal SDF subsequently used it as a dumping ground for some captured members of ISIS, their concubines, and unfortunate offspring, mixing them in with vulnerable refugees.

Since November, the western supremacy adored SDF have taken to shooting al Hol inhabitants, in cold blood — shootings that were lamented by the NATO klan at the 25 February anti-Syria UNSC meeting. It is worth of a reminder that the usual suspects spoke of the shootings as though nobody were responsible; they just were magically happening — despite the obvious fact that the SDF is the gang with the weapons. Also please keep in mind that the celeb white savior Khush — the DC-based American illegal who spent time in al Hol, which is in Syria, not in the US — revered the SDF terrorists as “authorities” in her address.

Let us be mindful that as the US (military-industrial-complexcreated al Qaeda, as the US created ISIS, the US has also created the terrorist, war criminal, ethnic cleansing, SDF.

European Countries Abandon Tens of Thousands of their Children in Syria

ARABI SOURI 

abandoned European children in Al Hol (Hawl) Concentration Camp Hasakah Syria - Kurdish SDF

European countries have invaded and destroyed an endless list of other countries claiming they’re spreading ‘democracy’ and promoting ‘human rights’ in the targeted countries, the practice of these western countries, in reality, is everything but related to human rights or democracy, it’s pure evil.

Tens of thousands of women and children members of families of European terrorists who practiced the ‘Western values’ in the killing, maiming, uprooting, and displacing hundreds of thousands of Syrians, are now abandoned by their countries. These are women who were married to European terrorists and bred tens of thousands of children while their husbands were demonstrating western values in Syria.

The Kurdish SDF terrorists are holding tens of thousands of those family members in addition to thousands of Syrians in concentration camps in regions under their control in the worst inhumane conditions ever imaginable. The captives in the Kurdish-run concentration camps under the US forces’ supervision hail from 57 countries, 24 of those countries are western countries.

Moussa Assi has more in this report for the Lebanese-based Al Mayadeen news channel, followed by the transcript of the English translation:

Their number is 64 thousand, they are members of the families of terrorists who came from 57 countries to fight in Syria, 80% of them are women and children whose countries, most of which are Western countries, refuse to take them back in contradiction to the stipulations of human rights laws that require states to bear the responsibility of their citizens outside their lands, just as it is the case of the other citizens and regardless of any consideration.

The result is tens of thousands of children and women who are held in very harsh conditions in the camps controlled by the Qasd militia in northern Syria.

Fionnuala D. Ni Aolain – Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism: Thousands of children have been convicted on charges that classify them as adults because of their belonging to the families of which they were born. We see countries that have taken an arbitrary line towards them, saying that they are not actual children because they were born into similar families, and this is clear to Western governments.

Western countries present various arguments for not taking their citizens back, including that they must stay close to the place where the crimes were committed in order for them to receive a fair trial.

Fionnuala D. Ni Aolain – Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism: The idea of holding tens of thousands awaiting trial is unrealistic and intended to keep these people away from their home countries. As for saying that they pose a threat to societies, let me say that the long-term risks are of leaving these children there.

Out of more than 250 French children born from marriages of ISIS terrorists in Syria, France agreed to take back only 35 children, and these are either orphans or their mothers agreed on the condition that they abandon them and remain in the Syrian camp.

Western human rights countries [sic] refuse to take back the children of their terrorists who fought in Syria. They issued a final judgment on these children that they are terrorists from birth and represent a later danger to Western societies.

Time is Not on Our Side in Libya

JULY 22, 2020

Ahmed, who lives in Tripoli, Libya, texts me that the city is quieter than before. The army of General Khalifa Haftar—who controls large parts of eastern Libya—has withdrawn from the southern part of the capital and is now holding fast in the city of Sirte and at the airbase of Jufra. Most of Libya’s population lives along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea, which is where the cities of Tripoli, Sirte, Benghazi, and Tobruk are located.

Haftar, who was once an intimate of the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), is now prosecuting a seemingly endless and brutal war against the United Nation’s recognized Government of National Accord (GNA) based in Tripoli and led by President Fayez al-Sarraj. To make matters more confusing, Haftar takes his legitimacy from another government, which is based in Tobruk, and is formed out of the House of Representatives (HOR).

Ahmed says that the quiet is deceitful. Militias continue to patrol the streets along the Salah al-Din Road near where he lives; the rattle of gunfire is anticipated.

On July 8, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres made a statement that could have been delivered at any point over the last decade. “Time is not on our side in Libya,” he announced. He laid out a range of problems facing the country, including the military conflict, the political stalemate between the GNA and the HOR, the numbers of internally-displaced people (400,000 out of 7 million), the continued attempts of migrants to cross the Mediterranean Sea, the threat from COVID-19, and the “unprecedented levels” of “foreign interference.”

The UN Human Rights Council passed a resolution to send a Fact-Finding Mission to Libya to investigate human rights violations in this war, including the mass graves found in Tarhouna. The credibility of the Council is in doubt. An earlier Commission of Inquiry on Libya set up in 2012 to study war crimes in 2011-2012 was shut down largely because the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) refused to cooperate with the investigation. A second inquiry, set up in March 2015, closed its work in January 2016 with the political deal that created the Government of National Accord.

Guterres did not mention the NATO war in 2011. I am told that he wants to appoint a joint Special Representative with the African Union and he would like a full review of the UN mission. All that is well and good; but it is short of what is necessary: an honest look at the NATO war that broke the country, fomenting a conflict that seems without end.

Foreign Interference

Statements about Libya drip with evasion. These terms—“foreign interference” and “foreign-backed efforts”—are dropped into conversations and official statements without any clarification. But everyone knows what is going on.

I ask Rida, who lives in Benghazi (now under the control of General Haftar), what she makes of these phrases. “We all know what is going on,” she tells me via text. “The government in Tripoli is backed by Turkey and others; while Haftar is backed by Egypt and others,” she writes.

At the core, she says, this is a dispute between two regional powers (Turkey and Egypt) as well as a contest between the Muslim Brotherhood (Turkey) and its adversaries (Egypt and the United Arab Emirates). Wrapped up in all this are contracts for offshore drilling in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, which additionally involved Cyprus and Greece.

It is not enough that this is a regional conflict. There is accumulating evidence that General Haftar is being supported by armed mercenaries (from Russia and Sudan) and by arms shipments from France, while the United States seems to have hedged its bets with support to both sides in the conflict.

Last year, General Haftar’s forces moved swiftly toward Tripoli, but were eventually rebuffed by the intervention of Turkey (which provided the Tripoli government with military aid as well as Syrian and Turkish mercenaries).

In late December, Turkey formally signed a military and security agreement with the Tripoli-based GNA, which enabled Turkey to transfer military hardware. This agreement broke the terms of the UN resolution 2292 (2016), recently reaffirmed in UN resolution 2526 (2020). Egypt and the United Arab Emirates have openly been supplying Haftar.

Now, the forces of the Tripoli government have moved to the central coastline city of Sirte, which has emerged as the key hotspot in this contest.

The Tobruk government, which backs General Haftar, and a pro-Haftar tribes council urged Egypt’s General Abdul Fatah El Sisi to intervene with the full force of the Egyptian armed forces if Sirte falls to the Turkish-backed government. Egypt’s military drill—called Hasm 2020—came alongside the Turkish navy’s announcement of maneuvers off the Libyan coast—called Navtex.

This is a most dangerous situation, a war of words escalating between Turkey and Egypt; Egypt has now moved military hardware to its border with Libya.

Oil

Of course, oil is a major part of the equation. Libya has at least 46 billion barrels of sweet crude oil; this oil is highly valued for Europe because of the low costs to extract and transport it. Countries like the UAE, which are pushing the embargo of Libyan oil, benefit from the withdrawal of Libya, Iranian, and Venezuelan oil from already suppressed world oil markets. Libya’s National Oil Corporation (NOC) has stopped oil exports since January; from about 1.10 million barrels per day, Libyan oil production fell to nearly 70,000 barrels per day.

Neither Haftar nor the Government of National Accord in Tripoli can agree on the export of oil from the country. Oil has not left the country for the better part of the past six months, with a loss—according to the NOC—of about US$6.74 billion. General Haftar controls major oil ports in the east, including Es Sider, and several key oil fields, including Sharara.

Neither side wants the other to profit from oil sales. The United Nations has intervened to try and resolve the differences, but so far there has been limited progress. The entire conflict rests on the belief that either side has that it could win a military victory and therefore take the entire spoils; no one is willing to compromise, since any such agreement would mean a de jure partition of the country into its eastern and western halves with the oil crescent divided between the two.

Demilitarized Zone

UN Secretary-General Guterres has surrendered to reality. In his recent statement on Libya, he listed a series of “de-escalation efforts, including the creation of a possible demilitarized zone”; this “demilitarization zone” would likely be drawn somewhere near Sirte. It would effectively divide Libya into two parts.

Neither Ahmed nor Rida would like their country to be partitioned, its oil then siphoned off to Europe, and its wealth stolen by oligarchs on either side. They had misgivings about Muammar Qaddafi’s government in early 2011; but now both regret the war that has ripped their country to shreds.Join the debate on FacebookMore articles by:VIJAY PRASHAD

Ambassador Jaafari Addresses the NATO Klan Occupying the UN

July 7, 2020 Miri Wood

His Excellency, Dr. Bashar al Jaafari addressed the UNSC via webcam, 29 June.

The NATO colonial racist Klan occupying the UN held its second June anti-Syria Security Council meeting on the 29th. The unindicted war criminal humanitarian bastards responsible for the horrors in Syria again shed their crocodile tears. The same vermin who have ignored Trump’s arson of Syrian wheat fields, of Madman Erdogan’s theft of Syrian wheat, that were mute over all terrorist bombings of hospitals — with NATO weapons — keened over Syrian hunger, over Syrian medical facilities.

NATO
NATO Klan running the UN created this alleged “breaking point.”
No matter to the arrogant, who try to figure out how to impose a new Sykes-Picot on Syria.

The capi di tutti capi of the UN again fixated on their demands to extend and expand UNSCR 2504 (2020), which expires 10 July to facilitate the carving up of Syria, under a Turkification plot by terrorist-controller, Madman Erdogan, and a Trumpian aspect to facilitate the stealing of Syria‘s oil and to ethnically cleanse regions of the country from native, indigenous, Syrians.

In previous, recent, reports concerning the UN anti-Syria meetings, the author found it sufficient to simply note that little man Mark Lowcock had shown himself to be a liar, when caught falsifying stats.

Addressing Mark Lowcock’s “falsified” stats at UNSC, Ambassador Jaafari shows documentation for SARC convoys in 2018. [Archive]

On the 29th, Lowcock whined that the COVID-19 cases in Syria remained low, and could barely contain the fantasy that the coronavirus might suddenly spread rapidly in the SAR:  “We can see from what has recently been happening elsewhere in the region […] the scale of the risks ahead,” sadistically chirping about the collapse of health care in Yemen (though not mentioning it is the result of the Obama- and Trump-approved genocidal bombing campaign of al Saud.). Still hearing voices (“Across the country, people who have struggled through nine years of conflict are now telling us they are at a breaking point”) — and claiming them to be Syrian, though he has not been in Syria since January 2018 — the Humanitarian Relief Coordinator demanded the right to usurp Syria’s sovereignty.

Lowcock renames NATO voices as Syrian ones. In early March, NATO country members Craft, Lowcock, Jeffrey, & Raab met in NATO Turkey to further conspire against Syria. Some met the CIA/State Department-funded organ-trafficking White Helmetstoo. Around the same time, terrorists were plotting a new chemical attack in Idlib.

In addition to demanding the colonial right of the United Nations’ NATO Klan to destroy Syria’s national sovereignty, Lowcock “noted public assurances by the United States and the European Union that their Syria sanctions programmes neither ban the flow of humanitarian supplies, nor target medicines and medical devices” though he neglected to note that per the UN Charter, no member state is permitted to launch sanctions against another member state without the passage of a Security Council resolution.

Belgium UN tagged other Syria haters in tweet.

The French pro tempore Security Council president also breached the UN Charter — again — bringing in the non-physician Susannah Sirkin to engage in criminal propaganda against Syria. Sirkin is Director of Policy and Senior Advisor of the Syria-hating, US 501(c) tax-supported charity, Physicians for Human Rights.

Bringing in the false witnesses is a deliberate misuse of the Council’s mechanism. — H.E. Bashar al Jaafari

PHR is just one of many NGOs which by mere coincidence happens to be aligned with the lies of NATO imperialism.

NATO

During the 16 June meeting, the same French ambassador brought gave the podium to the alleged widow of dark net operative, Bassel Khartabil.

NATO
The NATO Klan of the UN has a long history of inviting warmongers to the UN.

Co-penholders Belgium and Germany continued in their role of favored teacher’s pets among the UN’s House Servants, regurgitating the imperial warmongering against Syria, despite both countries’ part in dumping their human garbage into the SAR.

After each Security Council anti-Syria meeting, the UN NATO ambassadors generally throw an echolalia party on Twitter. This time, though, they were overcome with titillation over the annual anti-Syria meeting in Brussels, home of NATO headquarters. Hashtagged #SyriaConf2020, Syria was excluded from this fourth conference.

Unidicted war criminals against Syria flaunt their arrogance.

His Excellency Dr. Jaafari began his statement with a quotation of Socrates. He [rhetorically?] asked why the Council did not move on SG Guterres’ 23 March call for waving coercive measures during the COVID pandemic. He stated that the true crime against humanity was against 24 million Syrians, by member states of the Assembly. He reminded the NATO Klan that Turkish occupiers in his country have prevented the OCHA humanitarian convoy from delivering goods to the Atari area since 14 April. He asked the imperialists if they support International Law, and the UN Charter, or if they supported the Turkish-US-Israeli occupation of “parts of my country.”

Diplomat Jaafari also reminded the NATO Klan that Syria does not recognize meetings about Syria which exclude Syria’s participation, and that the United Nations has no business participating in them.

The noble diplomat also reminded the NATO Klansmen occupying the UN that Syria has two crossings and two airports — in Aleppo and in Qamishli — available for the delivery of humanitarian goods.https://www.youtube.com/embed/OBW-Pa567vs?feature=oembed

بيــــــان السفير د. بشار الجعفري المندوب الدائم للجمهورية العربية السورية أماممجلس الأمن حول تنفيذ القرارات المتعلقة بالشأن الإنساني في سوريا نيويورك في

29/6/2020السيد الرئيس، لقد صدق سقراط عندما قال: “إن الإنسانية ليست ديناً، إنما رتبة يصل إليها بعض البشر”. ومن المؤكد، في هذا السياق، أن حكومات بعض الدول الغربية التي تحاول التسويق لنفسها كنموذج للإنسانية والأخلاق قد فشلت في الارتقاء لهذه الرتبة. وهذا ما أكدته هي ذاتها مجدداً عندما صمت آذانها عن دعوة الأمين العام للأمم المتحدة بتاريخ 25/3/2020 إلى تخفيف التدابير القسرية أحادية الجانب وسارعت للإعلان عن تمديدها لا بل وتشديدها، فسقطت في امتحان المصداقية والإنسانية.​ألا يستحق وضع حد لمعاناة ملياري إنسان من التدابير القسرية الأحادية الجانب عقد جلسات طارئة لمجلسكم ووضع حد لهذه الجريمة بحق الإنسانية والمساءلة عنها؟

ألا يستدعي رفع التدابير القسرية عن /24/ مليون سوري تحركاً فورياً ممن يُسّمون بـ”حملة القلم الإنساني” وداعميهم في هذا المجلس بدلاً مما شهدناه اليوم وفي الجلسات الأخيرة للمجلس ذات الصلة من مساعٍ محمومة للترويج لادعاءات كاذبة وكيل الاتهامات ومحاولات فاشلة للتنصل من مسؤوليتهم عن الإرهاب الاقتصادي والعقاب الجماعي الذي يمارسونه بحق ملايين المدنيين السوريين؟!​كيف تتوقعون أن يصدق أي عاقل أن ألمانيا وبلجيكا، بصفتهما حاملي القلم الإنساني في هذا المجلس، ومن ورائهما الولايات المتحدة وبريطانيا وفرنسا يضمرون أي حسن نية أو حرص إنساني على أمن ورفاه السوريين وهم يحاربون كل سوري في غذائه ودوائه وقوت أطفاله وأمن ومقدرات بلاده ويدعمون الاحتلال الأمريكي – التركي – الإسرائيلي لإجزاء من بلادي وجرائمه التي يرتكبها بشكلٍ مباشر أو عبر أدواته من الميليشيات الانفصالية والتنظيمات الإرهابية؟!

إن من نكد الدنيا على الأحرار في هذا العالم أن تكون هذه الدول هي الخصم والحكم في هذا المجلس.السيد الرئيس،​لقد أمعنت حكومات بعض الدول الأعضاءْ في هذا المجلس في عدائها لبلادي، وأدمنت سياسات الاستعداء حتى باتت عاجزةً تماماً عن القيام بأي دور إيجابي وبنّاء إزاء الوضع في بلادي والمنطقة. وما الصمت المطبق المفروض على مجلس الأمن بضغط من الدول التي تسعى لتحويله إلى منصة لحلف الناتو إلا دليل على ذلك. ويبدو أن حكومات هذه الدول مستسلمةٌ لأهواء الإدارة الأمريكية ومطامعها ومغرمةٌ بسياسات الاحتلال والتتريك ودعم الإرهاب التي يمارسها نظام أردوغان على أراضي بلادي، وتدعم طموحات أردوغان التوسعية وجرائمه بحق سوريا والعراق ومصر وليبيا وتونس وأرمينيا واليونان وقبرص وكذلك انتهاكاته لحقوق كل من يعارضه من أبناء الشعب التركي الصديق وهو ما رأيناه في أعقاب محاولة الانقلاب المزعومة والتي تعرفون تماماً ما تبعها من انتهاكات جسيمة لحقوق عشرات الآلاف من المدنيين وموظفي الدولة الأتراك.

ونقول لكم صراحة: إذا كان البعض يحلم بتكرار تجربة الاحتلال التركي لأجزاء من قبرص منذ العام 1974 في بلادي فإننا لن نسمح بحدوث ذلك حتى ولو وقف الناتو كله خلف أردوغان.​إنني ادعو زملائي من ممثلي دول الناتو في هذا المجلس للرد على أسئلتنا بشكل صريح ودون مواربة: هل تدعمون القانون الدولي وميثاق الأمم المتحدة أم تدعمون الاحتلال الأمريكي – التركي – الإسرائيلي لأجزاء من بلادي؟ هل تحترمون ما نصت عليه قرارات مجلسكم حول سيادة بلادي ووحدة وسلامة أراضيها أم تدعمون المساعي الرامية للتتريك أو التقسيم ومواصلة زعزعة الأمن والاستقرار في منطقتنا؟

هل تؤمنون بجدوى مكافحة الإرهاب وتخليص المدنيين من سيطرة التنظيمات الإرهابية أم أن الإرهاب والاستثمار فيه حلال ومستحب عندما يخدم أجنداتكم؟ هل تؤمنون بمبادئ العمل الإنساني أم أن محاصرة السوريين وترهيبهم ومحاربتهم في لقمتهم ودوائهم هي أمر هين عليكم مادام يخدم مصالح وأجندات البعض؟ وكيف تفسرون صمتكم عن منع أردوغان لوصول قوافل المساعدات الإنسانية من داخل سوريا إلى المناطق التي يحتلها كما هو عليه الحال بالنسبة للقافلة التي كان من المفترض أن تتوجه إلى منطقة الأتارب ومحيطها والتي وافقت عليها الحكومة السورية بتاريخ 14 نيسان 202، ولم تنفذها أوتشا حتى الآن؟ واذا منعتم هذا المجلس من القيام بمسؤولياته الأساسية في الحفاظ على السلم والأمن الدوليين فمن هي المرجعية الدولية البديلة التي يمكن ائتمانُها على مبادئ ومقاصد الأمم المتحدة؟السيد الرئيس، ​مجدداً، يقوم حملة القلم بإعداد مشروع قرار لتمديد مفاعيل القرار 2165 الخاص بالعمل عبر الحدود. ولن استفيض هنا في شرح موقف بلادي المعروف لديكم والرافض لمثل هذه القرارات التي تبتعد كل البعد عن الأهداف الإنسانية المفترضة فيها وعن أحكام قرار الجمعية العامة رقم 46/182، وتهدف لخدمة أجندات الحكومات المعادية لبلادي والمساس بسيادة الجمهورية العربية السورية ووحدة وسلامة أراضيها استناداً لادعاءات أوتشا المسيسة وتقاريرها المشوهة، وتتجاهل الجهود الجبّارة التي تبذلها مؤسسات الدولة السورية وشركاؤها في العمل الإنساني بالتعاون مع الدول الحليفة والصديقة.​إن القرار 2165 كان تدبيراً استثنائياً مؤقتاً اتخذه مجلس الأمن في ظروفٍ معينة لم تعد قائمة، ولا يمكن السماح باستدامته أو تعزيزه بتضمين القرار معابر إضافية تخدم الاحتلال وتهدد سلامة ووحدة الأراضي السورية.

إن أوتشا قادرة على العمل من داخل سوريا واستخدام المعابر الرسمية المعتمدة لإدخال المساعدات بما فيها معبري البوكمال ونصيب ومطاري حلب والقامشلي. وعوضاً عن إضاعة الوقت في تقارير أوتشا المضللة وما تتضمنه من تفاصيل لا طائل منها، فإن على مجلسكم التصدي للأسباب الجذرية للأزمة والتي من شأن معالجتها إعادة الأمن والاستقرار والارتقاء بالوضع الإنساني ألا وهي إنهاء الاحتلال الأمريكي – التركي، ووضع حد لجرائمه بما فيها تدمير البنى التحتية ونهب ثروات سوريا المتنوعة وحرق المحاصيل الزراعية، ودعم جهود الدولة السورية وحلفائها لمكافحة الإرهاب، والرفع الفوري للتدابير القسرية الأحادية الجانب التي لا تقتصر آثارها على معيشة ملايين السوريين فحسب وإنما تهدف من ضمن جملة أمور لتجزئة بلادي وهذا ما يؤكده قانون قيصر سيء الذكر الذي استثنى مناطق شمالي شرق سوريا من أحكامه بهدف تشجيع النزعات الانفصالية لدى الميليشيات العميلة للاحتلال ومحاولة خلق وقائع جديدة على الأرض.السيد الرئيس،يجدد وفد بلادي مطالبته الدول التي تعهدت والتزمت باحترام القانون الدولي وصون السلم والأمن الدوليين بوضع حد لتسييس الشأن الإنساني في بلادي، ودعم جهود الدولة السورية في المجالين الإنساني والتنموي، ورفض الشروط السياسية والإملاءات المرفوضة التي تضعها بعض الحكومات، بهدف عرقلة جهود الإعمار والتعافي وإعادة المهجرين.​

وتجدد حكومة بلادي التأكيد على موقفها من مؤتمرات بروكسل للمانحين باعتبارها مجرد فعاليات استعراضية دعائية تهدف لخدمة أجندات حكومات بعض الدول المنظمة لها والمشاركة فيها في تسييس العمل الإنساني ومحاولة فرض شروطها المسيسة ولاءاتها العقيمة. وتؤكد حكومة بلادي أنها لا تعترف بأي اجتماعات أو مبادرات تعقد حول سوريا دون مشاركتها والتنسيق الكامل معها، وتجدد مطالبتها الأمم المتحدة بعدم المشاركة في مثل هذه المؤتمرات حفاظاً على نزاهة دورها واحتراماً لمعايير العمل الإنساني وفقاً للقرار 46/182.

ختاماً، السيد الرئيس،

إن دعوة الرئاسة لشهود الزور لتقديم إحاطة أمام مجلس الأمن لا يخدم المسألة النبيلة التي انكبّ مجلس الأمن على التعامل معها على مدى أكثر من 100 جلسة حتى الآن. وهي سوء استخدام متعمّد لآليات المجلس بهدف تشويه الحقائق وتضليل السادة أعضاء المجلس.​لقد تكرر مشهد استحضار وكلاء أجهزة “الكذب” في جلسات المجلس سواء تعلّق الأمر بالوضع الإنساني أو السياسي أو الملف الكيماوي. وهذا بحدّ ذاته يؤكد مدى تحامل أعداء سوريا في هذا المجلس على بلادي، ومدى إحباطهم من فشل رهانهم على الإرهاب والعقوبات طوال سنوات الأزمة.​إن الدور المناط بالضيوف الذين تدعوهم الرئاسة للحديث أمام المجلس حول مسألة إنسانية يجب أن يكون دوراً مسؤولاً وإنسانياً حصراً وليس دوراً ناقداً، متحاملاً، مسمماً ومحرّضاً ضد بلادي حكومةً وشعباً. إن من يتحدّث عن الوضع الإنساني في أي مكان يجب أن يكون بمستوى الأمانة وأن يتم تثقيفه بأحكام الميثاق وضوابط الحديث وأصول التخاطب.

شكراً السيد الرئيس

The US Lost in Syria – So Now They’re After Their Business and Military Affiliates

Beirut – After 9 years of a war which had torn, killed and exiled millions from their homeland, Syria has fought hawkish NATO powers and diabolic militias which devastated the country. However, unlike Libya and Iraq whose land has been destroyed and economically annexed by US, their allies and proxies, Syria approaches the finish line as Gulf and other foreign investors set foot on Syrian land to discuss post-war reconstruction efforts.

With that being said, it would be naive to assume that Syria will be able to reconstruct without a fight. As US foreign policy fails miserably before the entire planet, they’re betting on their last chips – an optimistic venture – that they still have a chance at crushing the Syrian government. The Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, which does anything but protect civilians, came into effect on June 17. According to the US State Department, the sanction bill is to hold the Syrian government accountable for the ‘widespread death of civilians’ and to seek ‘justice for those suffering under the [Syrian President Bashar] Assad regime’s brutality’ – baseless allegations deflated by renowned journalists around the world, such as Vanessa Beeley and Eva Bartlett, who have visited and explored Syria throughout the war as opposed to “experts” who haven’t read a shred of its history.

Independent Journalists Vanessa Beeley & Eva Bartlett Puncture the ...

As Syria’s UN Representative Bashar al-Jaafari puts it, the Caesar bill isn’t much different than the previous sanctions, but instead serves as a form of psychological warfare to frustrate the Syrian population further. The major difference is that this time, any individual or business who wish to deal with the government are condemned and sanctioned.

Although Pompeo reinforced that the sanctions are to hold the regime accountable on their own terms, this is fraudulent on many counts. The sanctions do not aim to punish President Assad himself, but rather worsen the humanitarian hell in which people have been living under in the past 9 years (and, crushing the Lebanese Resistance on their way). As Pompeo smugly articulates in his press statement, “the United States remains committed to working with the UN and international partners to bring life-saving assistance to the Syrian people.” What would muddle with logic here is that, if the US were so concerned with the welfare of the Syrian people, why have US forces burnt down over 200 dunums of wheat, barley and other crop fields in Hasaka before the sanctions came into effect?  If the United Nations is a credible humanitarian organization that assists those in need, why hasn’t it condemned the US burning of crop fields?

Sanctions don’t ‘change political behavior’ of regimes and enforce ‘accountability for human rights abuses;’ this theory has proven nil statistical significance. Sanctions starve people, deprive them of basic necessities like oil and gas and hold essential medication from them under the sunshade of ‘dual use’. Morality, morbidity and trauma rates go higher, and under maximum pressure, their effects last for generations. Given the reality that sanctions have almost never resulted in ‘regime change,’ then they are just a sadistic pursuit by the Global North to punish people for resisting imperialism. It is sufficient to take a good look at Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea, whose governance have become nearly immune to international pressure.

Once again, the US is dictating the world who to normalize relations with and who not to. They coerce the world who to be friends with and who not to. On its way, it hacks its way into the scene, tells Lebanon, an economic and military ally to Syria, that they will be punished if they were to trade with their own neighbor. As if Sykes-Picot wasn’t enough to divide West Asia, this is a clear reattempt at destroying any form of unison between the two countries and thus instantiating divide through economic restrictions and punishment.

Syria, an already war-torn country, is flattened by an economic crisis and shortages as a result of 9 years of war trauma. While Lebanon, minus the sanctions, today suffers from the depreciation of the Lira and one of the worst economic crises in its history since the 1975 Civil War. With the rise of the dollar crisis in Lebanon, the IMF, the Lebanese Central Bank and other institutions hold back dollar injections into the country, fueling a high demand and short supply. Knowing that goods are largely imported in Lebanon, the currency of transaction is naturally by the dollar, which has recently started to smother entire households making ends meet on low incomes. Syria, a country which has criminalized the use of dollar on land, enjoys strong economic ties with Lebanon, through which they deal by the Lira. This entails that the function of the sanctions isn’t only to affect Syria alone, but it is also to cut Lebanon’s main trade partner which only exacerbates the dollar crisis in the country. Wishful thinking-ly, America’s proxy, “Israel”, through such a tactic, thinks they could coerce Hezbollah into trading its weapons for food.

From infrastructure and basic necessities comes security, and America’s parasite – “Israel” – cannot allow for a strong, stable Syria to heal, and a Lebanon which continually threatens their existence. As Lebanon has recently transitioned into a new government, with a new prime minister and cabinet, MSM has turned to paint it as ‘Hezbollah-led government’ in attempt to delegitimize and punish it on the short run. Under such premise, “Israel” pushes America into a cost-effective war to crush Hezbollah – not militarily – but through sanctioning the Lebanese government, which has a high possibility given the terms and conditions of the Caesar Act. Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah reassured the Lebanese that the government will not end trade with Syria, and neither will the community starve. Deviating the economic hues of the country to the East seemed like a plausible solution, proposing more ties with China and Iran. The world awaits the repercussions of economic terrorism, which will eventually end up in defeat as it always has.

Victoria Nuland Alert

The foreign interventionists really hate Russia

PHILIP GIRALDI • JUNE 23, 2020 

It is difficult to find anything good to say about Donald Trump, but the reality is that he has not started any new wars, though he has come dangerously close in the cases of Venezuela and Iran and there would be considerable incentive in the next four months to begin something to bolster his “strong president” credentials and to serve as a distraction from coronavirus and black lives matter.

Be that as it may, Trump will have to run hard to catch up to the record set by his three predecessors Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Bush was an out-and-out neoconservative, or at least someone who was easily led, including in his administration Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen, Reuel Gerecht, Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, Eliot Abrams, Dan Senor and Scooter Libby. He also had the misfortune of having to endure Vice President Dick Cheney, who thought he was actually the man in charge. All were hawks who believed that the United States had the right to do whatever it considered necessary to enhance its own security, to include invading other countries, which led to Afghanistan and Iraq, where the U.S. still has forces stationed nearly twenty years later.

Clinton and Obama were so-called liberal interventionists who sought to export something called democracy to other countries in an attempt to make them more like Peoria. Clinton bombed Afghanistan and Sudan as a diversion when the press somehow caught wind of his arrangement with Monica Lewinsky and Obama, aided by Mrs. Clinton, chose to destroy Libya. Obama was also the first president to set up a regular Tuesday morning session to review a list of American citizens who would benefit from being killed by drone.

So the difference between neocons and liberal interventionists is one of style rather than substance. And, by either yardstick all-in-all, Trump looks pretty good, but there has nevertheless been a resurgence of neocon-think in his administration. The America the exceptional mindset is best exemplified currently by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who personifies the belief that the United States is empowered by God to play only by its own rules when dealing with other nations. That would include following the advice that has been attributed to leading neocon Michael Ledeen, “Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business.

One of the first families within the neocon/liberal interventionist firmament is the Kagans, Robert and Frederick. Frederick is a Senior Fellow at the neocon American Enterprise Institute and his wife Kimberly heads the bizarrely named Institute for the Study of War. Victoria Nuland, wife of Robert, is currently the Senior Counselor at the Albright Stonebridge Group and a Nonresident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. That means that Victoria aligns primarily as a liberal interventionist, as does her husband, who is also at Brookings. She is regarded as a protégé of Hillary Clinton and currently works with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who once declared that killing 500,000 Iraqi children using sanctions was “worth it.” Nuland also has significant neocon connections through her having been a member of the staff assembled by Dick Cheney.

Nuland, many will recall, was the driving force behind efforts to destabilize the Ukrainian government of President Viktor Yanukovych in 2013-2014. Yanukovych, an admittedly corrupt autocrat, nevertheless became Prime Minister after a free election. Nuland, who was the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the State Department, provided open support to the Maidan Square demonstrators opposed to Yanukovych’s government, to include media friendly appearances passing out cookies on the square to encourage the protesters.

Nuland openly sought regime change for Ukraine by brazenly supporting government opponents in spite of the fact that Washington and Kiev had ostensibly friendly relations. It is hard to imagine that any U.S. administration would tolerate a similar attempt by a foreign nation to interfere in U.S. domestic politics, particularly if it were backed by a $5 billion budget, but Washington has long believed in a global double standard for evaluating its own behavior.

Nuland is most famous for her foul language when referring to the potential European role in managing the unrest that she and the National Endowment for Democracy had helped create in Ukraine. For Nuland, the replacement of the government in Kiev was only the prelude to a sharp break and escalating conflict with the real enemy, Moscow, over Russia’s attempts to protect its own interests in Ukraine, most particularly in Crimea.

And make no mistake about Nuland’s broader intention at that time to expand the conflict and directly confront Russia. In Senate testimony she cited how the administration was “providing support to other frontline states like Moldova and Georgia.” Her use of the word “frontline” is suggestive.

Victoria Nuland was playing with fire. Russia, as the only nation with the military capability to destroy the U.S., was and is not a sideshow like Saddam Hussein’s Iraq or the Taliban’s Afghanistan. Backing Moscow into a corner with no way out by using threats and sanctions is not good policy. Washington has many excellent reasons to maintain a stable relationship with Moscow, including counter-terrorism efforts, and little to gain from moving in the opposite direction. Russia is not about to reconstitute the Warsaw Pact and there is no compelling reason to return to a Cold War footing by either arming Ukraine or permitting it to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Victoria Nuland has just written a long article for July/August issue of Foreign Affairsmagazine on the proper way for the United States manage what she sees as the Russian “threat.” It is entitled “How a Confident America Should Deal With Russia.” Foreign Affairs, it should be observed, is an establishment house organ produced by the Council on Foreign Relations which provides a comfortable perch for both neocons and liberal interventionists.

Nuland’s view is that the United States lost confidence in its own “ability to change the game” against Vladimir Putin, who has been able to play “a weak hand well because the United States and its allies have let him, allowing Russia to violate arms control treaties, international law, the sovereignty of its neighbors, and the integrity of elections in the United States and Europe… Washington and its allies have forgotten the statecraft that won the Cold War and continued to yield results for many years after. That strategy required consistent U.S. leadership at the presidential level, unity with democratic allies and partners, and a shared resolve to deter and roll back dangerous behavior by the Kremlin. It also included incentives for Moscow to cooperate and, at times, direct appeals to the Russian people about the benefits of a better relationship. Yet that approach has fallen into disuse, even as Russia’s threat to the liberal world has grown.”

What Nuland writes would make perfect sense if one were to share her perception of Russia as a rogue state threatening the “liberal world.” She sees Russian rearmament under Putin as a threat even though it was dwarfed by the spending of NATO and the U.S. She shares her fear that Putin might seek “…reestablishing a Russian sphere of influence in eastern Europe and from vetoing the security arrangements of his neighbors. Here, a chasm soon opened between liberal democracies and the still very Soviet man leading Russia, especially on the subject of NATO enlargement. No matter how hard Washington and its allies tried to persuade Moscow that NATO was a purely defensive alliance that posed no threat to Russia, it continued to serve Putin’s agenda to see Europe in zero-sum terms.”

Nuland’s view of NATO enlargement is so wide of the mark that it borders on being a fantasy. Of course, Russia would consider a military alliance on its doorstep to be a threat, particularly as a U.S. Administration had provided assurances that expansion would not take place. She goes on to suggest utter nonsense, that Putin’s great fear over the NATO expansion derives from his having “…always understood that a belt of increasingly democratic, prosperous states around Russia would pose a direct challenge to his leadership model and risk re-infecting his own people with democratic aspirations.”

Nuland goes on and on in a similar vein, but her central theme is that Russia must be confronted to deter Vladimir Putin, a man that she clearly hates and depicts as if he were a comic book version of evil. Some of her analysis is ridiculous, as “Russian troops regularly test the few U.S. forces left in Syria to try to gain access to the country’s oil fields and smuggling routes. If these U.S. troops left, nothing would prevent Moscow and Tehran from financing their operations with Syrian oil or smuggled drugs and weapons.”

Like most zealots, Nuland is notably lacking in any sense of self-criticism. She conspired to overthrow a legitimately elected democratic government in Ukraine because it was considered too friendly to Russia. She accuses the Kremlin of having “seized” Crimea, but fails to see the heavy footprint of the U.S. military in Afghanistan and Iraq and as a regional enabler of Israeli and Saudi war crimes. One wonders if she is aware that Russia, which she sees as expansionistic, has only one overseas military base while the United States has more than a thousand.

Nuland clearly chooses not to notice the White House’s threats against countries that do not toe the American line, most recently Iran and Venezuela, but increasingly also China on top of perennial enemy Russia. None of those nations threaten the United States and all the kinetic activity and warnings are forthcoming from a gentleman named Mike Pompeo, speaking from Washington, not from “undemocratic” leaders in the Kremlin, Tehran, Caracas or Beijing.

Victoria Nuland recommends that “The challenge for the United States in 2021 will be to lead the democracies of the world in crafting a more effective approach to Russia—one that builds on their strengths and puts stress on Putin where he is vulnerable, including among his own citizens.” Interestingly, that might be regarded as seeking to interfere in the workings of a foreign government, reminiscent of the phony case made against Russia in 2016. And it is precisely what Nuland did in fact do in Ukraine.

Nuland has a lot more to say in her article and those who are interested in the current state of interventionism in Washington should not ignore her. Confronting Russia as some kind of ideological enemy is a never-ending process that leaves both sides poorer and less free. It is appropriate for Moscow to have an interest in what goes on right on top of its border while the United States five thousand miles away and possessing both a vastly larger economy and armed forces can, one would think, relax a bit and unload the burden of being the world’s self-appointed policeman.

Exclusive Interview with SYRIA TIMES Newspaper

Wednesday, 17 June 2020 09:52

Ambassador Ja’fari: “Main Victim of Caesar Act is The Syrian Citizen.”

The Caesar Act comes at a time when the whole world is suffering not only in the health arena (Covid-19) but also in the financial one.

 Syria specifically is suffering from great duress. Coming out of a ten year long war which has exhausted the country in all its sectors, Syria now faces more hardship.

Sanctions have long plagued Syria, European and American ones. Since the war started on Syria, the USA and the West have sanctioned Syria, starting with Syrian companies and Syrian individuals and ending with non Syrians that trade with Syria.

The transport of oil and gas to Syria’s ports was forbidden. This had adverse living conditions on the ordinary Syrian citizen. Many Syrians suffered from the cold due to lack of heating fuel and gas. Unable to even guarantee that they had enough gas to cook a simple meal, Syrians resorted to other alternatives like using wood or electricity when and if available.

Today Wednesday 17/6/2020 the Caesar Act comes into effect, punishing the Syrian civilian population in obtaining its most basic needs.

Syriatimes was lucky enough to exclusively interview Syria’s permanent representative to the UN and one of its most vociferous defenders Dr. Bashar Al-Ja’fari.

 Exclusive Interview with SYRIA TIMES Newspaper

June 17, 2020

SyriatimesWhat does the implementation of the Caesar Act mean to the ordinary Syrian?”

–        Ambassador Ja’afari: The unilateral coercive economic measures, mistakenly called sanctions, are based on a shared unethical principle by governments that impose such blockades, based on belief that whoever possesses economic, military and political influence is capable of imposing his own will, decisions and policies on any country in the world by just trapping them commercially, economically and impeding their banking system, while totally ignoring and condoning the fact that these measures are illegal according to international law and the Charter of the United Nations. With regard to the so-called “Caesar’s Act”, let me say that Syria has been subject to US sanctions for decades since 1979 under the pretext of supporting terrorism and threatening the security of Israel, but since the terrorist war on Syria began, the US government has issued eight executive orders to impose or tighten economic, commercial and banking unilateral measures on Syria. These punitive measures, which were accompanied by similar European ones, had and still have clear impact on the Syrian economy and on the Syrian citizen. The main idea behind drafting “Caesar’s Act” is to exercise political pressure and psychological warfare on Syria, because measures contained in this act are already imposed on the Syrian Arab Republic. The main new factor in the act is the practice of economic and financial terrorism on any government or foreign party that might consider doing business with Syria or to contribute to the process of reconstruction. On the other hand, this act focuses more on the status of the Syrian Central Bank, as it is responsible for controlling the exchange rate of foreign currencies, by trying to accuse it of practicing money laundry. Allow me to point out here an important fact, which is that the Western ambassadors in the Security Council have always said publicly in all meetings of the Council regarding the political and humanitarian situation in Syria, that their governments will not contribute and will not allow the reconstruction process to be launched in Syria unless the Syrian government and its allies accept political concessions that these Western governments want. Meaning, they are taking Syria and its people hostages of their own schizophrenic policies. Needless to say, that the required concessions from Syria and its allies are totally incompatible with the national and security interests of Syria, and that they target Syria’s political independent choices and ultimately aim at achieving the mere interests of Westerners and Israel. In conclusion, the practical application of the US economic blockade imposed on Syria and other countries is to prevent any country that is subject to Unilateral Coercive Economic Measures from free and sustainable access to the global banking system and free trade without restrictions or obstacles. This is exactly what the US government and the European Union are doing against the Syrian Arab Republic. When the Syrian government and private banks are prevented from accessing the global banking system and benefiting from its facilities and transfers, this inevitably means that the ability of Syrian commercial institutions and entities is very limited in concluding deals and commercial partnerships and in carrying out import and export operations in a free and stable manner. Consequently, the main victim is the Syrian citizen, because restricting the free movement of trade and import means higher prices, less materials, and weakening the purchasing power of the Syrian citizen.

Syriatimes“Will this act not hurt the very citizen it claims it wants to protect?”

–        Ambassador Ja’afari: It is well known that successive American administrations rely in their foreign policy on specific tools, foremost of which are military power and aggression, economic blockade, and destabilization in order to change legitimate governments. The claims of Americans and Europeans that they impose Unilateral Sanctions in order to protect citizens in some countries are false, and facts on the ground expose that. The Americans and Europeans claim that the sanctions target Syrian government institutions exclusively! Any sane man will ask a question about the role of the government in any country of the world, and the answer is that the government is responsible for providing services to citizens in various fields starting with medicine and food to providing water, electric power and basic services and needs for citizens. Therefore, if the State institutions have been targeted with punitive measures that subsequently means that their capability to perform their primary services role is targeted.

On the other hand, the unilateral measures that target countries such as Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Syria, have been and will always be targeting citizens. These countries, among others such as Russia and China, are a target of these measures because of their political stances against the American and Western hegemony over the world. One of the biggest Western governments lies is that they are seeking to “protect democracy and human rights” in the world by imposing unilateral coercive measures. Everyone knows that the American government and the European Union are the allies of the most brutal dictatorial religious regimes in this world, just as they are the true allies of Israel, which occupies Arab lands to this day.

The Western political mindset knows well that economic embargoes are primarily harmful to citizens, but its political institutions continue to press ahead with punitive measures against people in order to create stifling social crises and push people to stand against their national governments and hold these governments accountable for their suffering.

Syriatimes“The USA claims that the Caesar Act will not affect daily necessities like medicine-How true is that claim?”

–        Ambassador Ja’afari: Most of the illegal measures in the so-called “Caesar Act” are not new, and Syria has been subject to the last wave of unilateral US and European coercive measures since ten years ago until today, and they amount to war crimes and constitute economic and financial crimes of terrorism. These punitive measures cause great economic and social damages, and their profound impact is no less than the impact of the crimes committed by terrorist armed groups against Syria and its people during these years.

 American and Western governments are so brazen. They openly declare that they will continue to impose an economic blockade on Syria until the Syrian state succumbs to their political, economic and military blackmail. They already know that this blockade directly affects health, banking and education sectors, as well as communications, transportation, electricity and basic services sectors, and every sector that relates directly to the daily details of the life of the Syrian citizen.

It is one of the ugliest forms of political hypocrisy embodiment in our world. The United Nations is subject to the pressure of these powers in order to limit the organization’s contribution in Syria to only providing humanitarian relief and refrains from launching projects to rehabilitate infrastructure and reconstruction. These Westerner governments do not find anything wrong with saying that they only allow the flow of humanitarian aid to Syria, but they will not allow the early recovery process that will directly affect the lives of Syrian citizens at home, and will provide the appropriate economic and social conditions for the return of Syrian refugees.

Syriatimes“American and European sanctions have been implemented in Syria for some time now. How is this different?”

–        Ambassador Ja’afari: This new US Act seeks to impose a kind of territorial division on the Syrian state, by excluding the area controlled by the unpatriotic Kurdish separatist factions from the consequences of Caesar Act. The US administration wants to undermine the reconstruction efforts and seeks to deprive the Syrians of their natural resources, paralyze production mechanisms, close production gates, and stop import and export operations, in addition to impeding the normalization of relations with Syria and undermining the contribution of Syrian expatriates to reconstruction efforts.

The so-called “Caesar Act” seeks to stifle Syria politically and economically after Washington was unable to strangle it with terrorist war. What is new in this Act is that it extends to include Damascus’ main allies, such as Russia and Iran, which the Act mentions by name.

In order not to repeat myself, I would say that more than 95% of the punitive measures mentioned in this Act are already imposed on Syria, and what the Americans, along with the Europeans and the Turks want is to target public opinion in Syria, to create a state of uncertainty and weak confidence in the local currency and the ability to promote self-sufficiency and in the capability and credibility of Syria’s allies that fought terrorism with it over the past years and will not abandon it in the face of this economic blockade.

The most important element in this battle is to know the goals of your enemy. Today, we are fully aware that Americans and Europeans want to compensate for their defeat when they supported terrorism, by exerting economic and social pressure on the Syrian state and its allies and preventing them from proving their capability to recover damages caused to the Syrian economy and launch the reconstruction process. In sum, our battle with them is a battle of existence, settling old and new accounts, and targeting the Syrian nation and national identity. We have no option to retreat after we succeeded in our war on terrorism that was and still supported by same governments.

Syriatimes“What can be done politically (in the UN arena) to alleviate the suffering of the Syrian people?’

–        Ambassador Ja’afari: We used to say within the diplomatic community of the United Nations, that this Organization is not a charity, and that what ultimately prevails in it is the logic of political and financial polarization. Needless to say that this does not lead us to despair, as much as, it pushes us to be realistic and to strive with our allies to confront as much as possible the attempt of Western domination of the frameworks of the United Nations by adhering to the provisions of the Charter and international law.

The main dilemma while addressing Unilateral Coercive Measures is that the United Nations periodically rejects and condemns them, but due to Western domination of the United Nations, this Organization has not been able, to date, to adopt clear legal and practical mechanisms or instruments to end these punitive measures or to mitigate their impact on the peoples of the targeted countries. Nevertheless, during the last period, especially with the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, we were able to push the Secretary-General and relevant international organizations and bodies to issue statements and adopt positions that speak candidly about the profound inhumane impacts of this economic blockade on the peoples of the targeted countries and the ability of the United Nations to achieve global collective solidarity in confronting this health pandemic.

In recent years, the Syrian government has sent many letters and appeals to the Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council regarding the impact of Unilateral Coercive Economic Measures imposed on the Syrian people. We have succeeded during the past months in creating sufficient lobbying power within the United Nations that embarrassed and provoked the American and European representatives and their governments.

However, the final evaluation is that these Western governments will not abandon the policy of military intervention or the imposition of Unilateral Economic Measures on every country that politically disagrees with them, including friendly countries such as Russia, China and Iran.

Therefore, options and methods of addressing this challenge are mostly national, and should focus on developing economic and industrial strategies that deal with these punitive measures and provide local alternatives to meet basic needs, and build strong and sustainable economic, industrial and banking relationships with our real friends, especially in light of the fact that governments imposing the economic blockade also control international financial institutions such as the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank Group, in order to define the course of the global economy.

Once again, our battle requires complete awareness of the goals of our enemies in the region and the world, and a clear definition of the limits of their capabilities and wills, so that we can address the main goals for which these Unilateral Coercive Measures were imposed, namely economic and social pressure on citizens and limit the state’s ability to secure the basic requirements for life.

Syria’s Jaafari to UNSC NATO Klan: Let My People Breathe

The UNSC held its anti-Syria meeting via webcam, 16 June, and, despite the massive anti-racism demonstrations in western countries, the NATO clique had not a single moral scruple when it came to flouting its klansmanship in its ongoing imperial plot to recolonize the Levantine republic.

The UN Speck Envoy Geir O.

In short, the unindicted war criminals of the UNSC demand the racist right to run Syria like a NATO colony.

The rabid hyenas’ humanitarian bastards concern for coronavirus in Syria remains one of the most hypocritically anemic cover stories in the history of NATO humanitarian destruction of sovereign nations, given the comparison of death totals from COVID in the SAR versus this virus in the US, UK, and France.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – Several Syrians participated on Thursday in a large demonstration against the U.S.-applied “Caesar Act”, which is a new set of sanctions that are meant to force regime change in the Arab Republic.

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the demonstration took place at Martyrs Square in the administrative capital of the Homs Governorate.

The demonstrators waived the Syrian national flag, along with photos of President Bashar Al-Assad and signs against the U.S.-imposed sanctions.

“They also expressed anger and condemnation of the U.S. hostility towards the free peoples, affirming that the fake humanity of the U.S. and its allies has been exposed,” SANA reported.

The Caesar Act was applied on Wednesday, June 17th, as part of the U.S.’ continued pressure against the Syrian government.

This new set of sanctions particularly targets the Syrian government and all entities and individuals that do business with them.

أولاً، الطورانية، والمقصود هو الإيديولوجيا العنصرية التوسّعية التي تُذكِّرنا بالإيديولوجيا الصهيونية، وتعود إلى العقود الأخيرة من القرن الـ19، وتداعيات الحرب العالمية الأولى، ومحاولات أتاتورك، وقبله حزب الاتحاد والترقّي، فقد ظلَّت الأوهام العُثمانية القديمة حاضِرة لديهم، على الرغم من هزيمة تركيا في الحرب التي أدَّت إلى اتفاقية “سيفر” قبل تعديلها في لوزان، بعد الدعم الروسي لأتاتورك في أيام لينين.

ظلَّت سوريا مُستَهْدَفة طِوال الوقت بدعمٍ فرنسي، ثم أميركي، للأتراك، من اقتطاع مرعش وديار بكر بعد معركة ميسلون، إلى اقتطاع الإسكندرون بعد الحرب العالمية الثانية، إلى محاولة عدنان مندريس في الخمسينات حتى يومنا هذا، بل إنَّ إردوغان، وتحضيراً لإلغاء اتفاقية لوزان 1923 وقيودها، بحسب المنطق التركيّ، يسعى إلى إعادة احتلال شمال سوريا وشمال العراق، والعودة إلى حدود الاحتلال العُثماني القديم.

 كما ترتبط بالإيديولوجيا الطورانية اعتبارات تركية أخرى، من بينها استحقاقات الانتخابات المقبلة بعد خسارة البلديات الكُبرى، ومصالح برجوازية الأناضول التي تسيطر على الاقتصاد التركي، وتُعدُّ المطبخ الحقيقي لإردوغان وحزبه.

فبعد أن فشلت هذه البرجوازية في الانضمام إلى الاتحاد الأوروبي، اخترعت الإسلام السياسيّ كغطاءِ للضَحك على شعوب الشرق الإسلامي، بدءاً من حكومات عدنان مندريس، إلى أوزال، إلى إردوغان وحزبه (في الحقيقة، الطورانية عنصريّة مُغلَّفة بالدين للمُغفّلين العرب). وتزداد أهميّة العامِل السابق مع ازدياد المُنافَسة من الاقتصاد الصيني والفييتنامي على أسواق مُتشابِهة.

يُشار هنا إلى أنَّ الطورانية نفسها مزعومة إلى حدٍ كبير، سواء في عناوينها أو جذورها، فأبطالها السياسيون منذ نهاية القرن التاسع عشر، مروراً بالثُلاثي “طلعت” و”أنور” و”جمال باشا”، وانتهاء بـ”أتاتورك”، ليسوا أتراكاً، بل تعود أصولهم جميعاً إلى منابِت شتَّى، تؤكِّد أنَّ الطورانية من جذورها إلى إردوغان هي صناعة قوَّة إقليمية، فهم من أصولٍ يهوديةٍ أو كرديةٍ أو غجريةٍ أو مجريةٍ أو ألبانية.

أما الجذور التاريخية لمُجْمَلِ العنصر التركي (السلجوقي ثم العُثماني)، فهي لا تقلّ تزويراً عن تزوير التاريخ اليهودي، فالأتراك في أصولهم قبائل بدوية رَعوية لم تعرف تركيا أبداً قبل القرن الثاني عشر، ويشبهون اليهود في ظروف استيطانهم الكولونيالي بتوظيفٍ من قوَّةٍ خارجيةٍ استدعتهم لأغراضٍ عسكريةٍ، فإذا كانت الدولة العباسية قد استدعت الموجة التركية البدوية المُقاتِلة الأولى، وهي الموجة السلجوقية، لمواجهة البويهيين الشيعة، فإن ملك بيزنطة الأرثوذكسي استدعى الموجة العُثمانية (عُثمان بن أرطغرل من قبيلة القايي) لمواجهة فُرسان الصليب المُقدَّس الكاثوليك بعد السقوط الأول لبيزنطة (القسطنطينية) على يد هؤلاء الفُرسان، وتحريرها على يد المسلمين وإعادة الأرثوذكس.

ومن مُفارَقات التاريخ أنَّ السقوط الثاني للقسطنطينية الأرثوذكسية جاء على يد الأتراك أنفسهم وتحويلها إلى إسطنبول بدعم الكاثوليك من تجَّار جنوى والبندقية.

ثانياً، البُعد الأطلسي للدور التركي في مواجهة روسيا الأوراسية واقترابها من المياه الدافِئة عبر سوريا، فالانبعاث العُثماني الأول عبر مندريس المُتأَسْلِم، ثم عبر إردوغان، هو انبعاث أميركي، كما صاغه اليهودي برنار لويس وبريجنسكي لتطويق الاتحاد السوفياتي، ثم الصّحوة الأوراسية.

ثالثاً، البُعد الصهيوني كشريكٍ أساسيّ في الأطلسي الجنوبي، وفي سيناريو الشرق الأوسط الكبير (تمزيق البُلدان العربية، وخصوصاً سوريا والعراق)، وتقاسمها بين كونفدرالية ولايات عُثمانية وكونفدرالية كانتونات إسرائيلية.

يُشار هنا إلى أن الطورانية التركية تشمل غالبيّة يهود “إسرائيل” الذين يتحدَّرون من قبيلة الخزر التركية.

الآفاق

إنَّ التمعّن في مجْمَل المُعطيات المُحيطة بالعدوان التركي يدلّ على أنه عدوان خاسِر بأهدافه القريبة والبعيدة، وسيدفع إردوغان ثمنه،عاجلاً أو آجلاً، في ضوء الاعتبارات التالية:

أولاً، سوريا الدولة المقاوِمة، وكذلك حلب، فإذا كانت تجارب الجيش العربي السوري والمقاومة الرديفة طيلة سنوات العدوان الإمبريالي، الرجعي، التكفيري، الصهيوني، والعُثماني عليها، قد أنتجت قوَّة مُجرَّبة وقيادة صُلبة، فثمّة عنصر مهم آخر قد يغيب عن الذِهن، هو مركز المقاومة الشمالية حلب.

وإضافةً إلى تقاليدها الوطنية، ثمّة “ثأر” خاصّ مع الأتراك الذين حرموها من الميناء التاريخي في الإسكندرون، كما أغرقوا الأسواق السورية بالبضائع المُنافِسة لصناعة حلب. ولا ننسى أيضاً أنَّ الأتراك قصفوها سابقاً بالمدافع في نهاية القرن التاسع عشر لتدمير مصانعها.

ثانياً، الموقف الروسي، وسيكون أصلب ممّا يتوقَّع كثيرون لأسبابٍ عديدة، على رأسها أنَّ إدلب معركة روسيّة بقَدْرِ ما هي معركة تحرير سوريا، فالجسم الأكبر من الإرهاب التكفيري هو جسم خلقته المخابرات الأميركية ودرَّبته لاستخدامه في ما بعد كجزءٍ من الطَوْق الأطلسي حول روسيا نفسها.

ومن الاعتبارات الأخرى لروسيا:

– تداعيات تجربة يوغسلافيا وتفكيكها وتداعيات التجربة الليبية، بعد أن برهنت الأحداث أنها سقطت جميعاً من خلال الإرهاب الأصولي في يد المخابرات الأميركية.

– تداعيات التجربة العراقية.

– سوريا حليف مهمّ لروسيا في ما يخصّ المياه الدافِئة والأمن البحري للأسطول الروسي.

– تداعيات حرب الغاز وخطوطه، وموقع ذلك بالنسبة إلى الغاز الروسي.

إلى ذلك، فإن للموقف الروسي تأثيرات حاسِمة في تركيا، إذا ما طغت عليها العنصرية الطورانية، وتجاهَلت حقائق التاريخ والجغرافيا، ومن ذلك:

– ارتهان الاقتصاد التركيّ لعناصر روسية ضاغِطة، بدءاً من السَيْلِ التركي أو الجنوبي لخطوط الغاز الروسية، وانتهاء بالقطاع السياحيّ، سواء من حيث النسبة (أكبر كتلة سيّاح من الروس) أو من حيث الاستثمار في هذا القطاع، وخصوصاً المناطق التي توصَف بـ”مدن الجنّة”، حيث تحتل الاستثمارات الروسية والإيرانية نسبة عالية جداً.

– القوَّة العسكرية الروسية والموقف المُجرَّب في نزاعٍ كهذا، فالإنذار الروسي في العام 1956 ساهم في وقف العدوان التركي على سوريا آنذاك.

– تذكر تركيا أنه بُعيد الحرب العالمية الأولى، ولولا الدعم الروسي الذي قدَّمته ثورة أكتوبر بقيادة لينين، وتضمَّن مُشارَكة عسكرية برية وبحرية، لانهارت تركيا وتكرَّست اتفاقية “سيفر” التي أعادتها إلى خارِطة صغيرة مُمزَّقة.

ثالثاً، إيران التي تشكِّل جزءاً أساسياً من معسكر المقاومة والمُمانَعة، وتتذكَّر أنّ تمدّد الغزو العُثماني في القرن السادس عشر للمنطقة، ارتبط بمعركتين بينهما وقت قصير، هما معركة مرج دابق التي احتل فيها العُثمانيون الشرق العربي كله، ومعركة كالديران التي أوقفت الصعود الإمبراطوري الإيراني.

رابعاً، تركيا الداخل، فالفُسيفساء التركية تنطوي على عناصر مُعوّقة بالنسبة إلى إردوغان، وقادِرة على مُفاقَمة أزمته، مثل الكرد (20 مليوناً) والكتلة العلوية (20 مليوناً أيضاً)، إضافةً إلى نفوذ منظمة الخدمة، بقيادة فتح الله غولن، ونسبة كبيرة من قوميات غير تركية فاعِلة في الوسط البرجوازي وغير معنية بالانبعاث الطوراني.

كما أنَّ حزب الشعب العِلماني، بقَدْرِ ما يشترك مع إردوغان في الأوهام الطورانية، فإنه ينتظر سقوطه. أيضاً، وفي ما يخصّ تركيا الداخل، فإن كلّ محاولات تجديد العَثْمَنة في القرن التاسع عشر، وكذلك محاولات الانبعاث العُثماني في القرن العشرين، هي محاولات فاشِلة، فبعد مدّ وجَزْر في حروب القرم والبلقان مع روسيا، خسر الأتراك هذه الحروب، كما خسروا الحرب العالمية الأولى، وانحسرت دولتهم عن مساحاتٍ شاسِعة، وفشلوا في إنتاج دور خارجيّ كجزءٍ من حروب الإمبريالية في الحرب الكورية، كما ضد سوريا أيام مندريس الذي أُعْدِمَ شنقاً.

وعلى الأغلب، إنَّ برجوازية الأناضول التي ابتدعت مع المخابرات الأميركية الانبعاث العُثماني للضّحك على مسلمي الشرق، وصنعت أحزاب هذا الانبعاث، من مندريس، إلى أوزال، إلى فتح الله غولن، وتخلَّصت منهم كلَّما أخفق أحدهم، ستبحث في ضوء نيران إدلب عن بديلٍ لإردوغان، إزاحةً أو قتْلاً، فتجمَّع البريكس الذي يضمّ روسيا والصين والهند وأسواقهم ومواردهم الضخمة، أهم بكثير من الحنين إلى القبيلة البدوية القادمة من آسيا بقيادة أرطغرل.

Erdogan Continues Barking and Whining, SAA Cleans 11 More Towns

February 26, 2020 Arabi Souri

The Syrian Arab Army cleaned eleven more towns today in Idlib southern countryside from NATO terrorists while the Turkish madman Erdogan continues his barking, less intensified though as he still begs Mr. Putin for a meeting with his NATO backup buddies.

The towns cleaned by the Syrian Arab Army in the past 24 hours are Shanshrah, Tarmila, Der Sunbul, Maarat Mukhs, Breij, Khirbet Wubeida, Hassanah, Futaira, Kursaa, Fugaih, and Malaja in Maarat Noman.

Just as I’m concluding this post four additional villages were cleaned from terrorists as per the SAA sources, these villages are Safohin, Kafr Musa, Flaifil, and Kawkaba, making the total 15 towns and villages in the past 24 hours.

These advances come immediately after the SAA cleaned the town of Kafr Nobl, one of the main centers of the NATO-sponsored Nusra Front (HTS – Al Qaeda Levant) and its affiliates in the last Al-Qaeda stronghold in Syria, this how the US itself calls the Idlib province, the same province where Baghdadi was allegedly killed by Trump last October 2019.

Meanwhile, the Turkish madman Erdogan is feeling heartbroken and helpless while watching the Syrian Arab Army and their Russian allies decimate the terrorists he collected from all sides of the world, nourished, pampered, armed, trained them and sent them to kill the Syrian people.

Erdogan was hoping to bring the Russian President Putin to Istanbul for a summit along with Erdogan’s NATO backers Germany’s Merkel and France’s Macron.

Mr. Putin so far, frustrated from Erdogan’s lies, procrastination, and the last flip flop of Erdogan was in Libya pushed by Pompeo and in Ukraine, turning against previous agreements with Putin and in exchange with only promises.

Today, Erdogan declared that the Americans failed him and that he will try to beg Trump once again for help in Idlib, good luck with that Ottoman daydreamer, even the Pentagon’s own Esper said that Trump mercenary forces (aka US Army) in Syria will not be sent to the Syrian – Turkish borders and they will be focused on fighting ISIS, as he claimed.

The SAA is fulfilling their ‘sacred duty in cleaning the country from the terrorists and their sponsors’ as per the latest statement today by the Syrian Military General Command, until the last inch.

SAA Continues to Liberate ‘Every Inch;’ Helmets to Release Fake Chemical Video; Terrorists’ Sabotage, Abandoned Weapons

February 4, 2020 Miri Wood

The al Nusra White Helmets have finished a new chemical hoax video so that Trump will bomb Syria for alQaeda, again.

Syrian Arab Army units continue to fulfill President Assad’s promise to liberate every inch of Syrian soil, from NATO-sponsored pathogens. On 4 February, the SAA announced that the villages of Tal al Aghar, Tweil al Halib, Barissa, Hammadat, Um al Sharshouh and Tal Sultan, east of Saraqib, had been cleansed of what has rightfully been called the filthiest of the filth.

Also newly liberated is the al Nairab village north of the Aleppo-Lattakia International Highway. At this writing, the SAA is engaged in ground-to-ground battle with the savage terrorist gangs, near Kaddour and Rwaiha, southwest of Saraqib.

In the newly liberated area of Kafr Laha in the al Houla area of northern Homs countryside, the SAA discovered — surprise! — another huge cache of abandoned weapons and ammunition. The mostly NATO weapons found — and some found “inside a hole at one of the schools in Kafri Laha” — automatics rifles, sniper specialty rifles, mortars (bombs), rockets (bombs), and explosive devices (also bombs).

Unfortunately, terrorist savages do not like to go willingly and dislike the loss of their weapons of slaughter, that cost the NATO taxpayer — especially the American NATO taxpayer, which Trump insists is overburdened — a heavy price, the cannon fodder of the NATO Empire showed its collective Captagon rage in new acts of bombing and sabotage.

At dawn on 4 February, the criminally insane terrorists used drone bombs and mortars to inflame the al Rayyan Gas Station, the South Central Region Gas Factory, the Ebla Gas Factory, and the Homs Refinery. These malignant actions meant to sever Syrians from essential energy needs, comes within days of unknown, highly trained spec operatives/mercenaries cutting the undersea pipelines in Baniyas.

Minister of Oil & Mineral Resources Engineer Ali Ghanem told the media that the terrorists continue to target the oil sector, and that these fires were quickly contained and extinguished. He noted that some damaged units are being assessed, but that technical cadres are mitigating the “damage to ensure the continuity of gas flow to the generation plants” and that “there will not be a large effect on the issue of the local market’s supplies.”

We have always noticed that terrorists launch attacks as a means to exert direct pressure, but we can get over that through using alternative plans, and they will not succeed in their schemes and we are able to overcome this crisis soon.

Oil Minister Ali Ghanem

THE RUSSIAN DEFENSE MINISTRY HAS ANNOUNCED THAT THE TERRORISTS OF THE SO-CALLED THE WHITE HELMETS ARE PREPARING TO PUBLISH A FABRICATED VIDEO ON A CHEMICAL ATTACK IN IDLIB.

On Monday 27 January, Syria’s Foreign and Expatriates Ministry dispatched a diplomatic letter to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres and to the head of the Security Council, reporting that another fabricated chemical attack is planned in the Idlib-Aleppo areaunder the direction of Turkey.

The NATO P3 dominated UN and the NATO stenographer journalists have all ignored that diplomatic letter, as they earlier ignored OPCW Inspector Ian Henderson’s statement to the Arria Formula process on 20 January.

Mr. Henderson stated there was no chemical attack in Douma.

Human Shields: Turkish Forces Suffer Casualties In Syrian Army Attack On Idlib

Soiuth Front

Turkey and the United States are employing active diplomatic, media and even limited military measures to contain the Syrian Army offensive against terrorists in Greater Idlib.

On January 31, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened the Damascus government with a military action if the Syrian Army does not stop its anti-terrorism operation in Idlib. The official Turkish rhetoric says that the operation against rebels (i.e. al-Qaeda—linked radicals) put the region on the brink of the humanitarian crisis and displaced hundreds of thousands people that started fleeing to Turkey. This stance corresponds with the position of the US State Department that also accused the Assad government and its allies of violating the ceasefire regime and causing civilian casualties. Both Ankara and Washington did not address the fact that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and other groups linked to al-Qaeda were excluded from all ceasefire deals that have ever been reached on the situation in Idlib. Turkey and the US are not interested in the defeat of terrorists by the Syrian Army because this would strengthen the positions of the Damascus government. At the same time, they contributed no efforts to defeat al-Qaeda by themselves.

On February 1 and 2, the Turkish military established several positions near the militant-held town of Saraqib, located on the crossroad of the M4 and M5 highway. On February 2, Turkish troops and equipment arrived in Idlib city. Local sources say that a Turkish observation post will soon be established there. These observation posts are intended to shield these key areas from the Syrian Army offensive into the region. The irony of the move is that both these towns, as well as most of Idlib province, are controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham that Aknara officially considers a terrorist group. This may appear to be not enough taking into account the scale of clashes between al-Qaeda and pro-Damascus forces.

On January 31 and February 1, government forces liberated over 8 villages, including Ain al-Ban, Muqah and Amiriyah,‏ in southeastern Idlib. However, the army did not attacked Saraqib and the main hot point moved to Aleppo.

On January 31, the army cleared the town of Rajm Judran, Khirbat Kharas and Tulul al-Hazmr, al-Khalidya from Hayat Tahrir al-Sham forces in western Aleppo. At least 17 militants were captured and a dozen of others were killed in the clashes. Hayat Tahrir al-Sham responded to this advance with a fierce counter-attack involving suicide bombers. The first suicide bombing took place in al-Sahafyeen. Then, the area was recaptured by militants.

On February 1 and 2, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham continued attacking  army positions reportedly recapturing the area of al-Zahraa. At least 3 suicide bombers were employed to break the army defense. Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham leader Abu Mohamad al-Julani personally arrived on the frontline in order to motivate the so-called moderate opposition. Despite these efforts, the army backed up by Russian air power and special forces contained the militant attack, and even liberated Humayra‏ and Halisah. Pro-militant sources reported that 4 Russian service members were killed during the February 1 clashes. If these claims are confirmed, the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham leadership will likely try to exploit this to draw attention of militants’ supporters from the recent military setbacks.

An escalation also took place near al-Bab, where Turkish-backed forces attacked positions of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces and the Syrian Army on February 1. The main clashes took place at Kharabishah, Tell Rahhal and the Sha’alah RADAR Base. Early on February 2, five airstrikes by unknown warplanes hit positions of Turkish proxies in al-Bab. After this no clashes erupted in the area.

Pro-militant sources release multiple contradictory reports on the supposed army casualties in Aleppo and Idlib clashes. Summing up them, militants claim that over 150 soldiers were killed and at least 15 units of military equipment were destroyed. The Syrian side provides no official reports on militant casualties. Photos and videos from the ground show tens of vehicles belonging to militants that had been captured or destroyed by the army.

If the situation continues escalating and further, the ongoing battle may become Aleppo 2.0 for foreign-backed radical groups. The arrival of al-Julani to the frontline is a rare development showing the importance of the ongoing clashes. If militants fail to break the army defense in Aleppo and continue losing ground west and southwest of the city, government forces could develop advance along the M5 highway and reach Saraqib from the northern direction. In this case, Turkish observation posts will not help them to keep control of this town. The liberation of Saraqib will mark the total collapse of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham’s defense. The road on Idlib city will be opened.

On February 3, the Turkish Defense Ministry reported that at least 6 Turkish personnel were killed and 7 others were injured in a Syrian Army shelling in the Idlib zone. According to the defense ministry, Turkish forces responded with attacks on Syrian positions. President Erdogan said that between 30 and 35 Syrian soldiers were killed. Ankara calls the incident a ‘treacherous attack’, forgetting to note that it itself put own troops in a grave danger by using them as human shields to protect al-Qaeda.
