30 dec – Russia hopes UN Security Council endorses Syria truce deal

The draft resolution endorses the agreement that also commits the Syrian government and the opposition to enter into direct talks at the end of January in the Kazakh capital, Astana. – Syria War Report: Nation-Wide Ceasefire, Kurdish YPG Forces Withdrawing from Aleppo City? – Russian Air Force hammers ISIS positions in Palmyra – ISIS cuts off water supply from Aleppo

Earlier today, state-run SANA reported that the Islamic State terror group had cut off the water supply from its main processing plants on the Euphrates.
Up to this point, there had been an agreement to leave the water unaffected by the war. The residents of Aleppo will now be forced to depend upon local water wells and water bottles until the situation is resolved. – Egypt to send peacekeeping forces to Syria: report

Egypt will send peacekeeping forces to Syria in the coming days, as they attempt to administer the nationwide ceasefire among their Russian, Iranian, and Turkish diplomatic partners.

27 dec – Zakharova describes US decision to supply armed groups in Syria with arms as hostile move

Moscow considers the US decision to supply the armed groups in Syria with arms to be a hostile move, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, said on Tuesday.
Zakharova was quoted by TASS News Agency as saying “The transferred weapons would quickly end up in the hands of jihadists, and Washington must realize this… Perhaps, they even expect this to happen, since they actually sponsor Jabhat al-Nusra, which is a unit of Al Qaeda. This can hardly be called otherwise than aiding and abetting terrorists.” – CIA innrømmer for første gang et ansvar for Syria-krigen – Liberated Aleppo Presents Horrific Surprises

The Russian military has found in the districts of Aleppo liberated from militants mass graves with mutilated and disfigured bodies. As the official representative of the Ministry of Defence Major General Igor Konashenkov declared on Monday, the results of an inspection of districts of the city “are capable of shocking many”. “Large-scale burials of many dozens of Syrians, who were subjected to barbaric tortures and punishment have been found. Many have missing body parts, the majority were shot in the head,” said
He suggested that it’s “only the beginning”. Konashenkov emphasized that all facts are carefully documented as the heaviest war crimes of terrorists and will be made maximally public, “so that the European patrons of so-called oppositionists in London and Paris are made to realize who actually are their fosterlings, and realize their responsibility for their atrocities”.

The Russian Air Force is working overtime today, carrying out dozens of airstrikes across Syria’s eastern countryside amid a massive assault by the so-called ”Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) in the Deir Ezzor and Homs governorates.

Det verkar som att tidigare uppgifter om utländsk militär personal bland de väpnade grupperna i Aleppo i Syrien stämmer. Syriens FN-ambassadör räknade vid en presskonferens upp samma namn som angivits tidigare, bl.a. en amerikan, en israel och flera saudier. I motsats till vad som påstods i artikeln säger FN-ambassadören inte att de är tillfångatagna, ännu, men att de syriska trupperna planerar att arrestera dem.
Detta kan ju förklara västmediernas hysteriska beteende i samband med Aleppos befrielse från de väpnade grupperna. FN-ambassadören verkar ganska belåten över att äntligen kunna visa upp bevis på det den syriska regeringen har sagt hela tiden, att det handlar om ett krig mot Syrien lett från utlandet. Jag tycker dock att det är lite konstigt att han inte väntar att säga detta tills de verkligen är arresterade, tänk om de lyckas fly.

FN-resolutionen som Frankrike lade fram nu om bevakning av Aleppo-situationen har säkert med de här utändska militärerna att göra. Hade västländerna menat något med sitt prat om att de bryr sig om civilbefolkningen i Aleppo hade de varit i full gång med leveranser av förnödenheter till befolkningen av Aleppo vid det här laget, nu när de kan nås utan problem.
Undrar om Cecilia Uddén hade något uppdrag som hade att göra med försök att få ut de här personerna, eftersom hon skickades ut ur Syrien. Låter inte osannolikt tycker jag.
