Tal av Syriens FN-ambassadör –

Idlib and the War of Terror Against the Syrian People. Ambassador Jaafari’s Statement at UN Security Council

Thank you, Mr. President,
This meeting comes in a timely manner, in order to allow us and a number of other countries to put the Security Council in the picture of terrorist attacks by armed terrorist groups from Idlib against the neighboring towns and villages of Aleppo, Northern Hama, and the northern Latakia countrysides.
When I talk about the attacks, I would like to point out that the last of these attacks was the massacre carried out by these groups two days ago in the village of al-Wadihi in the southern countryside of Aleppo, a crime that resulted in the killing of 12 civilians and injuring more than 16 others while participating in a wedding in the village.
The lives of the inhabitants of this village, which was safe and lead a normal life, were transformed into a state of terror that can hardly be described by the fall of missiles launched by the terrorists of Nusra Front, who are supported by Erdogan’s Turkish regime… The bodies of the martyrs and the wounded, mostly women and children, were scattered in the alleys of the village. They also caused extensive damage to homes, private and public property, including the health center and the village mosque.
This barbaric crime comes as part of a series of crimes committed by these terrorist groups led by the HTS terrorist organization, which is Nusra Front organization, which is on the Security Council’s list of terrorist organizations and entities, being Al-Qaeda Organization in Syria, these crimes must be clearly and inexplicably condemned by the Security Council.

steigan.no – Beinharde sanksjoner fra USA. Mål: gjøre livet til syrere uutholdelig

Det er første Påske i Damaskus etter at terroristen i omkringliggende områder endelig er bekjempet. Det skulle vært ekstra glade feiringer. Men både i Damaskus og resten av landet må folk holde seg hjemme, eller i nærmeste nabolag, for USA innførte ved månedsskifte enda hardere sanksjoner mot det syriske folket. Og det har alvorlige konsekvenser. USA okkuperer de oljerike områdene i landet og nekter samtidig andre å selge olje og gass til landet. De truer med harde konsekvenser mot enhver som vil gi eller selge olje til landet.

almasdarnews.com – Syria says Iranian oil tankers blocked at Suez Canal if shipment is destined for Syrian port

Under the sanctions imposed by the U.S. and Great Britain, no Iranian oil tankers are allowed to transit the Suez Canal if they are destined for a Syrian port, a Syrian military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.
The source said Iranian oil tankers are allowed to enter Mediterranean waters if the ship is destined for Turkey; however, due to U.S. and U.K. sanctions, the vessels cannot transit again if they dock at a Syrian port.

proletaren.se – Det är fler än IS-resenärerna som spelar ovetande

Den gångna helgen kom glädjebeskedet att IS förlorat sitt sista fäste i Syrien. Kurdiska SDF hyllas för sina insatser, och de har utan tvekan spelat en viktig roll i att knäcka IS.
Men tystnad råder om de uppoffringar som den syriska armén gjort i kampen mot IS. Och tystnad råder om att den syriska armén hade kunnat göra mycket mer, om den hade sluppit bekämpa alla andra extremistgrupper som omvärlden stödde med vapen, pengar och krigare.
Visst måste IS-resenärerna ha förstått vad de gjorde. Frågan är hur det är med den svenska medie- och politikereliten. Jag ställer frågan direkt till er: Visst måste ni ha fattat vad ni gjorde när ni stödde det väpnade upproret i Syrien? Inte kan ni väl ha varit lika ovetande om terrorns verklighet som IS-resenärerna påstår sig vara?

globalpolitics.se – Om tortyr och krigsförbrytelser i Syrien

I Agenda 24/3 fanns ett inslag om tortyr och krigsförbrytelser i Syrien. Påminner om det alltför osakliga programmet i Aktuell 2/1.
Där fanns ett inslag om detta 2/1 kl. 21.11-21.21. Jag tycker att inslaget var alltför okritiskt och förde ett resonemang om detta som är lika aktuellt idag.
Först intervjuades en man som uppgav att han utsatts för tortyr i Syrien. Det är förstås fullt möjligt, men det finns andra aspekter.
Tydligen diskuteras inte tortyren av IS och andra terroristorganisationer. Inte heller av USA, Frankrike, Storbritannien, Saudiarabien, Turkiet och andra länder som angripit Syrien och har baser där (USA, Frankrike åtminstone) i strid med FN-stadga och internationell rätt.
Han påstod att Syriens regering dödat mångdubbelt fler syrier än IS. Inga som helst stöd för detta har rapporterats.
I programmet nämndes, liksom 2/1 att rättegångar förbereddes i Tyskland mot krigsförbrytelser begångna av “den syriska regimen”, under ledning av European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) ECCHR.
Men som vanligt är det inte aktuellt att utreda den främste angriparen och misstänkta krigsförbrytaren USA och inte heller terroristorganisationen al-Qaida som stöds av USA.

almasdarnews.com – Russian FM says militants preparing chemical provocation in Syria

Militants are establishing arms caches in several Syrian provinces to stage chemical weapons provocations, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Friday.
“There are alarming reports, which say that members of the Hayat Tahrir al-Sham terror group (also known as Jabhat al-Nusra, outlawed in Russia), together with the White Helmets, are getting ready to stage chemical agent attacks, planning to accuse the Syrian government of using chemical weapons,” she said.

21stcenturywire.com – Journalist taken hostage by Farouk Brigade 2013 – ‘Syrian government didnt use chemical weapons in Ghouta’

In its zealous pursuit to misinform western public opinion about Syria, MSM has canceled dozens of scheduled interviews with a war reporter after he has declared to Belgian RTL radio: “It wasn’t the government of Bashar al-Assad that used Sarin gas or any other gas in Ghouta”.
Pierre Piccinin da Prata, the Belgian War reporter and Editor-in-Chief of The Maghreb and Orient Courier, held hostage with Italian war reporter Domenico Quirico by Syrian ‘rebels’ for five months, eavesdropped a conversation through a closed door- between their jailers about the chemical weapon attack and saying that President al-Assad was not responsible for Ghouta Sarin gas attack.

presstv.com – Syria lashes out at US, UK, France over statement

Syria has strongly dismissed a joint statement by the United States, France, and Britain that declares they will not be participating in the war-torn Arab country’s reconstruction as long as it is led by President Bashar al-Assad.
An anonymous source at the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates told Syria’s official news agency SANA on Sunday that the joint statement was “a historical document of lie, hypocrisy, deception, and falsification.”

The statement by the three countries also came in spite of the fact that Assad has already ruled out the prospect of allowing hostile Western regimes to help reconstruct Syria.
The source at the Syrian Foreign Ministry said the governments in Washington, Paris, and London were “fully responsible” for the bloodshed in Syria.
The source called the joint statement “blatant interference” in Syria’s internal affairs and said those countries that had “killed and destroyed” were not invited to contribute to the reconstruction of Syria in the first place.

Ghassan and Intibah Kadi – How Syria Won The Revolution; The Jihadi Factor

The “War on Syria” has had many unintended twists and turns that were unforeseeable at the time it began. The plotters had no reason to believe they were going to lose, and the defenders had no option other than doing all they could and risk and sacrifice all that was dear and precious.
However, as frontlines are now being redrawn in Syria in preparation for the final showdown, a recapitulation of the events of the last eight years reveals that Syria did in fact end up having a revolution, but the group that embarked on the initial alleged revolution, the Free Syria Army (FSA) is nowhere to be seen.

Syria has gone the full circle against her enemies and against archaic and brutal dogmas. It seems that Syria has truly ended up having a revolution after all, a real revolution, and that real revolution has won. There is a great opportunity now to rebuild the nation, to rebuild it on wholesome, principled, virtuous and sound foundations.

Om den amerikanska journalist som dödades i Syrien 2012 –

Rick Sterling – Marie Colvin, Homs and Media Falsehoods about Syria

When we visited Homs I was struck by how normal it looked. The streets were full of people and the city looked fine. It was dramatically different than the images portrayed in western media. It was only when we were driving out of Homs that we passed an area where there was widespread destruction and battle damage. There was a sharp contrast between most of the city and the few neighborhoods where battle had raged.
The American journalist Marie Colvin died in February 2012 in one of those neighborhoods. It was called Baba Amr. Ten days after her death, the militants and remaining civilians had all departed Baba Amr. It’s unfortunate that Marie Colvin did not talk with Lilly Martin or visit the majority of Homs where the war was not raging. It could have provided much needed balance to her perspective.

USA’s president Trump har sagt att han vill ta hem landets trupper från Syrien. Vi får se hur det går, många har uttalat missnöje med det.

En bra sammanfattning av läget –
proletaren.se – Hoppfullt när Damaskus firade jul i fred – men stora hinder kvarstår

För första gången sedan kriget bröt ut kunde invånarna i Damaskus fira jul i en befriad och fredlig stad. Inga stadsdelar eller kringliggande områden är längre i händerna på väpnade grupper. Därmed riskerade inte heller julfirandet att störas av attacker från dessa.
Bilder från julaftonskvällen i Damaskus visade tomteparader och folk på gatorna.
Men det finns de som inte är nöjda med utvecklingen i Syrien, vilket Damaskusborna blev påminda om på natten mot juldagen. Israeliskt flyg bombade – ännu en gång – militära anläggningar i utkanten av huvudstaden. De syrier som i sociala medier skildrat ett glatt firande under julaftonen övergick till att visa hur natthimlen lystes upp av explosioner.
Julhelgen i Damaskus speglar situationen i Syrien i stort. Landet har kommit en bra bit på vägen mot stabilitet och fred. Men ett fåtal destruktiva krafter, bland dem Israel, försöker bromsa utvecklingen.

Ännu en av många rapporter om vapen som de väpnade grupperna lämnat efter sej –
