Damascus: #Russia|n TV shows #Assad regime & #Hezbollah attacks on #Wadi_Barada. #Hezbollah fighter is laughing.

Fighting is still ongoing as of 31 DEC and still no real ceasefire in place...just like the Ukraine Minsk 2 ceasefire is working with ongoing attacks there today and actually everyday...

UNSC set to applaud the so called ceasefire agreement which really is not a ceasefire agreement as long as Assad and Iran keep right on attacking.....

AND that so called Turkish Russian ceasefire...just like Minsk 2 ceasefire..constantly violated by both Russia and her allies.....

Local activists reported at least 10 airstrikes targeted west Aleppo countryside today in day two of #Ceasefire

MORE deliberate air strikes on schools AGAIN....

SCHOOLS=AIR STRIKES=CEASEFIRE....makes sense to anyone other than Assad...Iran...Turkey and Putin????????

Syria #Russia'n Special Forces are now in northern #Hama's Ghab plain

Damascus: New #Assad airstrikes and heavy artillery shelling on #Wadi_Barada.
There are no #JFS fighters in #Wadi_Barada. They have left the valley in 2015.

Russia’s #Hmeimem military operations centre: "#JFS is excluded from the #ceasefire. We can attack them everywhere."

Russia’s #Hmeimem military operations centre: "#Assad regime attacks against #Wadi_Barada don't violate the #ceasefire." #Damascus

What about Ghouta? JaI signed the agreement, regime still attacking.

Russian ceasefires are always "fragile". But why does the media play along and pretend they exist?

Six airstrikes on #WadiBarada right now, seems they stopped the attacks yesterday only bcz of the storm and weather

And the West was once again naive enough to praise #Russia's mock @UN resolution.
Some people never learn, it seems ...


Ceasefire, Russian way.
1 day after @UN PR stunt, #Russian jets resume air strikes on schools&civilians across #Syria.
"You cease, we fire."
