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 –

Och ännu en gång kommer påståenden om förberedelser för iscensatta kemvapen-attacker som ska skyllas på Syriens ledning –

Någon kemvapenhändelse som den de varnades för i förra inlägget har ännu inte inträffat. Kanske var det så att Ryssland och Syrien insåg att väst, och deras legokrigare på marken, inte tänkte backa från planerna, USA ökade sin militära närvaro i Medelhavet. Att de var helt inställda på att iscensätta en situation där de gavs en tillstymmelse till ursäkt för en större attack. Så Syrien med allierade ställde in den planerade offensiven för att återta Idlib. De tyckte kanske att de inte ville riskera att situationen blev ännu värre, efter all framgång de haft. Ryssland och Turkiet kom överens om ett avtal om en buffertzon runt Idlib, tung militär utrustning skulle dras tillbaka av båda sidor. Detta skulle i så fall ha fått väst med sina planer ur balans.

Avmilitariseringen har vad jag förstått genomförts delvis men inte helt. Istället kommer nu förnyade varningar från Ryssland och Syrien. De har fått information om nya tecken på att en ny föreställning kan vara på gång. Några utfall från väst om att de minsann tänker agera om en kemvapenattack inträffar har jag dock inte sett ännu.

According to the spokesman, on October 27, the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria received information from locals that terrorists from the Islamic Party of Turkestan* had transferred twenty 10 liter containers of chlorine for use in false flag attacks in Maarrat al-Nu’man, a city in Idlib province, northwest Syria.
These weapons were unloaded at Kafr Nabl and Al-Hawash, two nearby towns, according to eyewitnesses. Locals told the Center for Reconciliation that White Helmets had conducted a search for ”residents ready to participate in staged video shoots in exchange for food,” the spokesman said.

sputniknews.com – Staged Filming of Mock ‘Chemical Attacks’ Has Begun in Idlib – Russian MoD

”According to the information received from inhabitants of Idlib province, militants are now filming a staged provocation in the city of Jisr al-Shugur, where ”chemical weapons” are depicted as being used by the Syrian army against civilians. The film crews of several Middle Eastern TV channels arrived in Jisr al-Shugur in the morning, as well as the regional affiliate of one of the main American television news networks,” the Reconciliation Center said.
The Russian military added that the militants had brought two containers loaded with a chlorine-based toxic substance to Jisr al-Shughur to make the provocation seem ”natural.”
”The plot envisages staged scenes showing ‘activists’ from the Civil Defense (”White Helmets”) ‘helping’ the residents of Jisr al-Shughur after the Syrian army allegedly used the so-called barrel bombs with poisonous substances,” the center said.
According to the center, all videos of provocations shot in Jisr al-Shughur will be handed to broadcasters by the end of the day after being released via social media.

almasdarnews.com – Syrian, Russian forces launch nonstop attack on Idlib

According to a military communique from the Hama Governorate, the Russian and Syrian air forces launched over 100 airstrikes in the last 24 hours, hitting jihadist trenches, bases, and hideouts in the process.

steigan.no – Frigjøringa av Idlib er i gang – YouTube stenger alle offisielle syriske kanaler

Natt til 9. september 2018 begynte Syrias og Russlands flyvåpen sine kraftigste angrep på terroristenes posisjoner til nå. Observatører regner med at flyangrepene er forberedelser for en bakkeoffensiv som kan komme når som helst.
USA har prøvd å forpurre offensiven med å true med angrep på Syria «dersom det blir brukt kjemiske våpen». Dette er en ren invitasjon til en provokasjon fra jihadistene, slik de har gjort før. Også Frankrike og Storbritannia har meldt seg på som kommende angripere.

Brandon Turbeville – Journalist Exposes Western, Gulf Arming Terrorists in Syria

In August of 2017, Bulgarian reporter Dilyana Gaytandzhieva published a report in mainstream outlet Trud in her home country exposing the paper trail documenting the US, NATO, and Gulf countries were shipping weapons to terrorists in Syria. Gaytandzhieva’s reporting was the result of her own travels to Syria where she saw these documents firsthand and her subsequent follow-up investigation after her return home.
That article, “350 Diplomatic Flights Carry Weapons For Terrorists,” is still available and I highly recommend reading it now before going any further in this article.
Now, nearly a year to the day after Gaytandzhieva’s article was released (for which she was summarily fired), journalist Robert Fisk has conducted a similar investigation and come to similar conclusions. In his article for The Independent, “A Bosnian signs off weapons he says are going to Saudi Arabia – but how did his signature turn up in Aleppo?” Fisk traces back the numbers found on shell casings, mortars, and other weapons used by terrorists to their manufacturers in Bosnia and the United States.
