    Syrian Alawites distance themselves from Assad - BBC News http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-35941679 …

    When RFS Admiral Kuznetsov deploys to Med this fall, air wing will comprise Su-33, Su-25UTG and MiG-29K aircraft.

    Syria: people continue to starve in #Madaya due to regime's siege despite the fact the media doesn't care anymore

    US-Turkish strategy seems to be to remove ISIS once and for ever from the Turkish border. After the cut of resupplies, push further S can be made.

    Taken were Khirbat Tel Sha‘īr, Mazr'at Shahin and Karajik.
    Advance happens as a stream of foreign-trained fighters, heavy arms enters Syria.

    FSA troops are quickly advancing along the Syrian-Turkish border, took 3 more villages last night.

    A very interesting video taken by a Russian TV-team:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEyiOFJDnVc

    It starts at Shayrat AB (former major base of SyAAF Su-7/Su-20 units, now 'Russians only' place), and is showing a row of abandoned Su-20, Su-7UM, at least three Su-7BMKs...

    ...then the helo passes over as-Safira (one of major Syrian defence-industry areas)...seems the helo landed at Nayrab AB (Aleppo IAP) to refuel, before turning back south...

    ...a literal 'pearl'-sequence of this video starts at about 00.45, where one can see a L-39ZO serial number 2062 in the process of having its tyres replaced... certainly 'shocking' for any decent Western observer is a pair of mechanicians doing that job in between a 'pile' of DYI FAB-100s... seems that five years of war only made them more reckless instead of teaching them anything about security standards... (no surprise any more, there are repeated reports about 'mysterious detonations' at various Assadist air bases, almost every month).

    ...at about 01.45 the Russian helo is landing at T.4 AB, with camera taking a look towards west.

    ...at about 01.05, another L-39ZO with serial number 2092 appears on the tarmac next to one of MiG-25s (all of which were withdrawn from service back in 2009).

    Important development: Syrian Alawites distance themselves from #Assad crimes & say we're not members of Shia Islam.

    BUT WAIT AFTER five years of supporting Assad it is now to late to distance themselves from the Assad and Putin war crimes......

    The "#Azaz pocket" is now 50% bigger than it was when the #SyriaCeasefire started on February 27.
    Turkish/US orders to not attack YPG/Assad.


    The #ISIS front between #Doudyan and #AlRai collapsed.
    #FSA troops took 6 villages in 48 hours.


    Footage
    #FSA "Regiment 99" with lots of new toys vs. #ISIS.

    Liberation of another previously pro-#ISIS-held barrier in S-W #Daraa province by the #FSA.

    Also in S-W #Syria, rebels keep fighting (and now also pushing back) #ISIS and its proxies.

    Syrian (mostly islamist) rebels in #AlEis, still 100% depopulated after the pro-regime push.

    Russia needs to deliver 100s of tons of aid not 6.5

    Минобороны России
    ✔ ‎@mod_russia #SYRIA Specialists of Russian Centre with administration of #Daraa province delivered 2.5 tons of humanitarian aid to citizens of #Karfa

    EVEN more Russian lies.........

    Минобороны России
    ✔ ‎@mod_russia Rus ASF and AF of #SYRIA didn't make strikes on opposition units, which joined ceasefire and informed Rus or US Centres about their location

    Assad to Russian TV: "The West is dishonest, western countries are insincere, can't rely on them to solve problems"
    Yes, let's take a talking-to from the man whose regime has tortured and killed thousands.

    Russian TV: Assad "feels the pain of the ordinary person, turns own pain into boundless energy for his country."

    Vesti: #Assad is ready for the elections. He draws his strength from families of the dead. #Putin trusts him.
