Likely "not important enough" for your media:
6 civilians, among them 3 babies, murdered by #Assad's jets in #Idlib city today.

BreakingNews
Burning fighter jet seen over fighting in #Jobar , #Damascus.
Unclear if it crashed later or not.


No news on a crash.
So possibly only damaged or the afterburner.

E. #Damascus: Faylaq Al-Rahman targeting Regime positions on Abbasid front with SPG-9.

E. #Damascus: Faylaq Al-Rahman contribution to #Jobar Battle.

T-72 & BMP burning yesterday after hit by #ISIS #ATGM|s. Also today #ISIS launching raids on/near Regime road towards #Aleppo, closed again.

E. #Damascus: intense clashes raging in #Qabun Industrial Zone as result of Regime-Hezbollah counter-attack. 10s airstrikes on #Jobar-#Qabun

News of recapture of #Qabun Industrial Zone are incorrect but Rebels withdrew from Abbasid Garages & interchange areas.

Rebel mergers ongoing in N. #Syria (N. #Hama/S. #Idlib). Ajnad Al-Sham joined Faylaq Al-Sham & Jaish Al-Fatiheen joined Ahrar Al-Sham.

Erdogan thought, he could de-escalate the #YPG threat along the Turkish border w/the deal with #Putin.

The opposite happened of course.

Russia denies they had ever any plans for permanent military base in Syrian NE in YPG tribal area.

They said nothing about a temporary one though......it always starts as temporary....

Some pro-Regime sources desperately try to show a Regime victory on Rebels (#Jobar) with fake photos. Propaganda.

Hama: #ISIS ATGM strikes against #Assad tanks northeast of #Salamiyah on the regime supply road towards #Aleppo.
One hit on heavy transport carrier on the move and one stationary....

E. #Qalamoun: Jaish Al-Islam announces major advances with takeover of Jebal Al-Naqab & Jebal Al-Sharqi from #ISIS.

NW #Daraa: Rebel artillery intensively pounding Jaish Khalid positions in Yarmouk Basin. firing 3 D30s

E. #Damascus: intense clashes raging near Abbasid Garages, Syronics Complex and International road. Rough positions on map.

Say hello to #Israel's newest missile Defense system: David's Sling. Behind it is the #Arrow which intercepted a #Syrian SA-5 Friday morning fired in Syria at the IAF.....during a Palmyra air strike...which killed a high Level Hezbollah leader.....

Russian MoD refuted information published by foreign media about deployment of 'a new Russian military base'

http://s.mil.ru/2nKxWSt

BUT WAIT...it was the Kurds that released the Information not foreign media...

Can't help but conclude: certainly nowhere near as 'dangerous' as exaggerated here.

Foremost: the Russian AD system in Syria is the Russian AD system in Syria - and not the battered remnants of whatever the Assadists like to call their AD system. And, Hezbollah is much too important for Israelis but to make them care about Russians.

BTW, the IASF air strike from Sunday actually targeted Almazza AB: nothing in Palmyra area. Almazza AB used to be outside the city, but that was 50 years ago: due to the explosive growth of Damascus, meanwhile it's de-facto in the downtown - and just 3-4km away from Bashar's palace.

Whoever drew that map - has forgotten to add plenty of different 'IRGC and cohorts' flags.
