Binnish city this morning.
#AssadPutin kills the population.
It's actually quite easy.

Brutal #AssadPutin air strikes on Da'el in southern #Syria's #Daraa province.
"Liberation" coming soon, I guess.

Idlib city this morning.
#AssadPutin prepare the "liberation", just as they did in #Aleppo.

Aleppo: Rebels with a captured #Iran|ian officer in Eastern #Aleppo today.

Like one Russian said: thus far combat value of Adm. #Kuznetsov hasn't been zero, but negative. Nice video, though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3b-XR1V6f0

Aleppo: Rebels destroying #Assad regime ammunition transporter with TOW in Western #Aleppo today.

How a seven-year-old Aleppo girl on Twitter became our era’s Anne Frank

Confirmed that her twitter account has been deleted and her last tweet indicated they might have been on the verge of being captured/arrested/killed by advancing Shia militias not the Syrian Arab Army...as the SAA no longer exists...

To be very clear
Russia not only rejects the opposition request for a 5-day truce for #Aleppo
It also rejects,evacuating 500 heavily injured




TASS Verified account 
‏@tassagency_en
Moscow hopes those to blame for strike on #Aleppo hospital will be punished

No no, not THOSE Aleppo hospitals

SEEMS Russians forget that they have destroyed over 45 hospitals and clinics and other medical facilities....YET they demand no one be punished for that!!!!


NOTICE the Iranian position also in Iraq...no different from Aleppo.....

Mosul: "#Iran didn't agree with a humanitarian corridor & camps west of #Mosul & wanted the whole region west of #Mosul to be a kill box."


AND we are not suppose to be seeing a true "sectarian war against Sunni's"?

Charles Lister ‏@Charles_Lister

The debate over the relations (or lack of) between #Assad & #ISIS is too often skewed by exaggeration on both sides; proponents & opponents.


Of course #Assad didn’t “create” #ISIS.

What is worthy of investigation is whether #Assad acted in ways that allowed jihadis to grow.

There *is* a huge amount of solid evidence documenting #Assad’s role in empowering AQI/ISI in #Iraq between 2003-2010. No question.

There *is* a lot of evidence of #Assad regime-linked officials interacting with #ISIS, especially in gas industry & arms black market.

But for 2011-present, most accusations are [inevitably] affected by political motivations. Things too raw to draw conclusive findings.

WHAT is missing from Lister's comments is the evidence that Assad forces...together with YPG have never attacked IS positions and or IS would give up positions and inform Assad forces they were pulling out......

COUPLED with the distinct lack of air strikes by both Assad and Putin on IS positions....

Extraordinary hearing some suggest that #Aleppo reveals that #Syria’s war is ending. Dangerously naive - it’s entering a new, brutal phase.

Wow.

@MSF_Syria has ended its operations in Zaatari, #Jordan due to full closure of #Syria border.

And @sams_usa ended all ops in #Aleppo.

Binnish, like Kafranbel & other places bombed this week by Russia, are symbols of the anti-Assad movement, among the first towns to protest
