BBC Busts US, ISIS Commanders “Resettled” for More War

NOVANEWS

[ Editor’s note:  The video above is BBC and proves beyond a doubt that the US helped found ISIS along with Israel and Saudi Arabia.  Turkey made billions trading with ISIS, channeling the wealth of industrialized Syria to factory owners and business partners who represent Erdogan’s inner circle.

Iraq’s oil as well, moved through Barzani Kurdish lines, in an ISIS, KRG, Erdogan partership that included top Sunni families in Iraq and Saudi partners and banking.

First to leave Raqqa were the foreign commanders, regular military from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey including chemical weapons officers that ran the Raqqa based facility that the US is now hiding much like Germany was accused of doing with its gas chambers in the closing days of World War II.  America had to be first to Raqqa, it was from there that the US helped run the war… Gordon Duff ]

BBC News, London: Lorry driver Abu Fawzi thought it was going to be just another job.

– First published …  November 13, 2017 –

He drives an 18-wheeler across some of the most dangerous territory in northern Syria. Bombed-out bridges, deep desert sand, even government forces and so-called Islamic State fighters don’t stand in the way of a delivery.

But this time, his load was to be human cargo. The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters opposed to IS, wanted him to lead a convoy that would take hundreds of families displaced by fighting from the town of Tabqa on the Euphrates river to a camp further north.

The job would take six hours, maximum – or at least that’s what he was told. But when he and his fellow drivers assembled their convoy early on 12 October, they realised they had been lied to.

Instead, it would take three days of hard driving, carrying a deadly cargo – hundreds of IS fighters, their families and tonnes of weapons and ammunition.

Abu Fawzi and dozens of other drivers were promised thousands of dollars for the task but it had to remain secret.

The deal to let IS fighters escape from Raqqa – de facto capital of their self-declared caliphate – had been arranged by local officials. It came after four months of fighting that left the city obliterated and almost devoid of people. It would spare lives and bring fighting to an end. The lives of the Arab, Kurdish and other fighters opposing IS would be spared.

Satanist Naziyahu is mad, sad, and still wants to be bad

Satanist Netanyahu is mad, sad, and still wants to be bad

People like Netanyahu are Satanists not because they are drinking blood or calling up spirits, as in the case of Aleister Crowley, Rosaleen Norton, L. Ron Hubbard, and Antorn Lavey.[3] No, these people are Satanists because they want to destroy the moral and political order by any means necessary.

by Jonas E. Alexis

Netanyahu is obviously surprised that Assad is still in power. He has never faced such a challenge before. He helped destroy countries like Iraq, and he thought that he could still go around with his pants down continuing to rap Israeli songs like “Destroy this or that country.”

Netanyahu is mad and sad. He wants to continue to step out of his political bound and upset a ceasefire that has already been taking place in Syria. He is hopelessly and desperately trying to find a way to attack Syria, so has come up with a new lie and hoax. He has recently declared:

“I have also informed our friends, firstly in Washington and also our friends in Moscow, that Israel will act in Syria, including in southern Syria, according to our understanding and according to our security needs.”[1]

Pay close attention to what this joker is saying here. Israel will attack Syria according to their needs, not according to international law. How again can this man universalize this principle? What if Syria or Iran or any country in the Middle says the same thing? What if they say that they will act in Israel according to their needs? Would Israel like this? Would the West like this? And why is this man not being challenged by either Russia or the United States for saying crazy things like this?

Here is the issue here. The United States and Russia have finally come up with a somewhat reasonable and temporary solution in Syria, and one would assume that Netanyahu would join in. The Associated Press reported:

“U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday affirmed joint efforts to stabilize Syria as its civil war wanes, including with the expansion of a July 7 truce in the southwestern triangle bordering Israel and Jordan.”[2]

But how does Netanyahu respond again? Well, he wants to attack Syria, which means that he wants to support more terrorist cells in the region, which means that he wants more bloodshed, which means that he wants to destroy the Syrian population. Whether Netanyahu or the Israeli regime likes it or not, this is essentially Satanism.

People like Netanyahu are Satanists not because they are drinking blood or calling up spirits, as in the case of Aleister Crowley, Rosaleen Norton, L. Ron Hubbard, and Antorn Lavey.[3] No, these people are Satanists because they want to destroy the moral and political order by any means necessary. They ultimately want to attack Logos, and by doing that, they have inexorably become the enemies of all mankind.

Sadly, these people are using America to do their dirty work. One of the first persons to have noticed this diabolical activity was the Ayatollah Khomeini way back in 1979. His words bear repeating because they are still true even to this very day. He said:

“International Zionism is using the United States to plunder the oppressed people of the world. There is no crime America will not commit in order to maintain its political, economic, cultural, and military domination of those parts of the world where it predominates.

“By means of its hidden and treacherous agents [i.e., the Neoconservatives and other warmongers], it sucks the blood of the defenseless people as if it alone, together with its satellites, had the right to live in this world. Iran has tried to sever all its relations with this Great Satan and it is for this reason that it now finds wars imposed upon it.”[4]

Tell me, what have you seen in Syria over the past five years or so? Hasn’t the Israeli regime been using the United States to essentially suck the blood of defenseless Syrians? And when those defenseless Syrians start migrating to places in Europe, haven’t marionettes like Alex Jones started blaming “the Muslims”? Just do the simple math and see if the numbers actually add up. The answer may surprise you.

Part of the solution? Unplug Satanist Benjamin Netanyahu out of the political system. Don’t allow him to influence much of the West with his colossal lies and fabrications. As Mark Dankof has pointed out during an interview with Press TV,

The Unites States that can essentially pull the rug out of the extremist groups and stopping the supporting for them logistically, militarily and financially supporting stable governments in the Middle East, getting out of the regime change business, getting out of the arms-selling business and first and foremost insisting that Netanyahu has to come to a legitimate agreement with the Palestinians as a prelude to any significant peace.”

Lost in reverie: Mattis claims UN let US intervene in Syria, although it never did

NOVANEWS

US Defense Secretary James Mattis has recently claimed that Washington received a mandate to operate in Syria from no less than the UN itself. The problem is the UN never did any such thing as it does not even have any legal capacity to do so.

The UN cannot sanction a foreign invasion of Syria or any other country because it is absolutely impossible under international law, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said, commenting on the issue. “The UN cannot do such things,” he told the Russian media.

He went on to say that “Syria is a sovereign independent state,” adding that “only the Syrian government can invite armed forces of the third countries onto its territory” while “the UN has no such right,” as reported by Rossiyskaya Gazeta daily. The diplomat also said that “the fight against terrorism does not give any states or coalitions a free hand to establish their presence on Syrian territory.”

International law indeed envisages no way for the UN or any other international body to sanction an invasion of one state’s armed forces on the territory of another state. In fact, such actions are regarded as aggression under international law and are strictly prohibited.

UN General Assembly Resolution 3314 on the definition of aggression explicitly states that an “invasion or attack by the armed forces of a State of the territory of another State” as well as “any military occupation, however temporary” or “bombardment by the armed forces of a State against the territory of another State” is what particularly constitutes aggression.

However, all these facts did not prevent Mattis from claiming that it was the UN that sanctified the presence of the US troops on the Syrian territory without the consent of the Syrian government. “You know, the UN said that … basically we can go after ISIS. And we’re there to take them out,” the US defense secretary said, referring to the US actions in Syria as he answered a journalist’s question on Monday.

Apparently, he implied that a call by UN on the international community and the US in particular to take action was more than enough to justify the US military’s presence in Syria. Actually, the UN did issue such a call – in Resolution 2249 adopted by the Un Security Council in November 2015.

Resolution 2249 called on UN member states “that have the capacity to do so to take all necessary measures” and “to redouble and coordinate their efforts to prevent and suppress terrorist acts committed specifically by ISIL [Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL)]” as well as other terrorist groups.

However, it urged the states to do so “in compliance with international law” – something that the US officials often neglect when they assess the actions of the US military abroad.

The statements of the US defense secretary also provoked an angry reaction in Damascus. The Syrian government once again stated that the US troops are operating on Syrian territory without its consent and in violation of international law.

“The presence of the US forces or any foreign military presence in Syria without the consent of the Syrian government constitutes an act of aggression and an attack on the sovereignty of the Syrian Arab Republic as well as a gross violation of the Charter and principles of the United Nations,” Syria’s Foreign Ministry said, as cited by the SANA news agency.

It further said that the US presence “only leads to prolonging the crisis and further complicating it,” adding that the real goal of the US in Syria apparently lies in obstructing the peace process. The ministry then once again called for the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of US forces from Syrian territory.

The statements made by Mattis are “absolutely baseless” and “irresponsible,” Vyacheslav Matuzov, a political scientist and the head of the Russian-Arab Friendship and Business Cooperation Society, told RT, commenting on the issue. He went on to say that any foreign military presence on the territory of any state can be authorized solely by the legitimate government of that state.

“There is a clear position of the Syrian authorities, according to which the US troops are stationed on the Syrian territory illegally,” he said, adding that there can be “no argument”about the legal status of US forces in Syria.

Syria: Media Disinformation Campaign

NOVANEWS

Syria: Media Disinformation Campaign, Blaming Assad for Alleged Famine in Terrorist-Held East Ghouta, Fake Accounts, Photos

   

Needs your Attention!

Inside Syria Media Center tried to analyze what is now going on in Eastern Ghouta.

Our military correspondents investigated the issue. The results raise a number of questions.

The mainstream media are trying to convince everyone that an appalling famine in East Ghouta was caused by Assad’s blockade.

 

Meanwhile, humanitarian aid is regularly delivered there, but the terrorists do their best to prevent civilians and their children from obtaining it.

The East Ghouta’s terrorists are exploiting a sense of empathy of the international community. They don’t want to get UN and Assad’s humanitarian aid. Instead, they prevent any aid to be delivered into the Damascus district.

To arouse the storm of indignation from all over the world with the aim to break the siege they draw the pictures of starving and exhausted children.

So, the Western real goal is to force the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) to stop the siege so that the terrorists could regroup. How they are going to achieve it?

Fake accounts and photos are practiced to inflame a catastrophe.

It seems that one should be careful so that not to get to the fakes of fraudsters! The brainwashing is all the rage right now!

Take a look at this photo uploaded by ‘mostafa.mohamadi’ on November 3, 2017.

You should remember this crook’s account. The photo is a typical example of fake and here you are the proof:
A boy in the picture looks extremely unnatural. His surprisingly clean face does not match the color of the dirty hands holding the poster. It is unclear what is he doing in the crowd on the street with a poster in his hands in the place where there is no any rally or protest. The contours around the child’s shoulders are very explicit and clear, suggesting the image of the boy was superimposed. This can be judged if you download an image from the original, set a 1000% zoom and consider carefully the place of photomontage.

When modificating set the brightness, contrast and gamma

Photo-forensics method

Some discrepancy could be revealed by using Image Metadata Viewer and also ELA-analysis. If you change the brightness and work with such a tool as photo-forensics, you will see the banner drawn at the boy least of all.

Somebody should #StopLyingAboutGhouta, stop lying about the alleged crimes of the SAA and Assad and objectively cover the events.

Unfortunately, somebody went even further. The Official account of the Syrian Opposition, AMC news portal and “the Irish Solidarity with the struggle of the Syrian people for freedom, dignity, and justice, and horror and outrage at the slaughter they are enduring” (that is @SyriaIrl) scream that Assad bombs aid convoy. Wasn’t it a convoy hit by the militants in Aleppo in 2016?

Screenshot_24

Nur and Alaa: “The Bana al-Abed” script from Aleppo is used.

The terrorists continue to use children as an effective method to achieve their goals. First, the jihadists used defenseless boys and girls as suicide bombers, then as human shields hiding behind them from air strikes, and now the terrorists use children in the information war to weaken the siege of Assad’s troops and to run away, to slip as soon as possible if their plan to de-blockade East Ghouta does come true.

One of the striking examples of well-organized campaign imposed on the international community was ‘Bana al-Abed’ show launched when Aleppo had being recaptured in late 2016. At that time the phenomenon of Bana couldn’t become an obstacle on the way to clear Aleppo from the militants encircled.

And now it won’t work with the fake Nur and Alaa’s account which not only uses Bana’s experience but also is connected with the Iran Arab Spring movement.

This kind of opposition was the first Nur and Alaa follower on Twitter and the movement in the story was organized and followed practically the same pattern as with the other one information campaign to support the terrorists named #AssadBesiegesGhouta.

A website is formed first at GoogleSites’ platform

https://sites.google.com/site/hezbollahisaterrorist/ and https://sites.google.com/site/assadbesiegesghouta/).

Second, social networks’ accounts are created and well-known persons call for supporting the relevant hashtag (like #HezbollahIsTerrorism, #Assad_Besieges_Ghouta).

What is the Real life in East Ghouta?

Here you are the photos from the East Ghouta made on November 1, 2017. The daily life of local residents in the terrorists’-rule areas continued. It is hard, dangerous, but far from the monstrous hunger dictated by the Western media.

Thanks to many people in this situation that are doing their best to help Syrian children and locals from Eastern Ghouta.

Syria’s Eastern Ghouta: Catastrophic Situation or Heinous Disinformation Campaign?

NOVANEWS

More than 400,000 civilians of Syria’s Eastern Ghouta are still besieged and face the worsening humanitarian situation, said Stephane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, during a regular briefing at the UN Headquarters in New York on November 7.

The cease-fire regime has been established there since July 2017, as this area is one of four de-escalation zones. At the same time, Eastern Ghouta is occupied by various militant groups as Jaysh Al-Islam, Faylaq Al-Rahman, and Jabhat Al Nusra.

The humanitarian aid from the Syrian government, Syrian Arab Red Crescent (SARC), UN and Russia on a regular basis is delivered to Eastern Ghouta despite regular provocations and mortar shillings of the militants.

Not so long ago, on November 12, joint UN and SARC humanitarian convoy of 24 trucks arrived in Duma, Eastern Ghouta. Two weeks earlier, on October 30, 49 trucks loaded with vaccines, food, drinking water, and necessities made it to the areas of Kafr Batna and Sacqba to help more than 40,000 people.

Earlier, on September 24, another humanitarian convoy with the assistance of Russia entered Eastern Ghouta. The convoy delivered food, medicine and warm clothes for the locals. Later, it became known that most of the supplies had not reached civilians and fell into the hand of Faylaq Al-Rahman and al-Nusra militants, who took all the goods to their warehouses.

Consequently, it is exactly the militants who aggravate the humanitarian situation in Eastern Ghouta, what has been exactly mentioned by Dujarric. In fact, the militants deprived seriously ill women and children of the opportunity to get daily necessities and medicine. It seemed that the United States works hard to achieve exactly this goal: the White House administration has made every effort to deliver humanitarian aid to the starving militants.

By the way, without going into too much detail, the Western Mass Media has supported the disinformation campaign of the opposition militants on Facebook and Twitter going by the name #AssadBesiegesGhota.

The authors of the campaign created a series of short messages, tweets, photos, and videos, which mainly depict sick and malnourished children with only one purpose – to evoke feelings of pity and compassion among users of social networks around the world.

This action was initiated to show the world community that the people of Eastern Ghouta suffer from hunger. The West tries to make Bashar Assad and the Syrian Arab Army guilty instead of the militants who control the region.

However, the disinformation campaign is gaining further momentum. On November 13, the second phase of the campaign with the hashtag #BreakGhoutaSiege.

Most likely, the aim of the campaign is to make the Syrian government lift the siege on Eastern Ghouta. For its part, Assad’s government believes that the siege on Eastern Ghouta is a necessary measure since if withdrawn, militants will be able to obtain weapons and ammunition from their Western sponsors, regroup or leave the area under the guise of civilians.

Despite the scale of the disinformation campaign, it won’t affect the conduct of a successful counter-terrorism operation in Eastern Ghouta. The residents of the Damascus countryside are tired of living next door to militants and hope for the assistance of the Syrian government.

WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THE KOOKS OF ARABIA? SYRIAN ARMY ABOUT TO LIBERATE AL-BU-KAMAAL

NOVANEWS

The usual suspects have been put under house arrest.  These criminals include Prince Al-Waleed bin Talaal, one of the richest men in the world and the most visible of all the ersatz “nobles” of Arabia along with a gaggle of other princes and entrepreneurs, not to mention a son of a former king.  But, get this, the Saudis also have arrested the Prime Minister of Lebanon, Saad Al-Hareeri.  But, get this and remember this:  Both Ahmad Jarbaa and Riyaadh Hijaab are also in the old slammer.  The last two are “leaders” of the gentrified opposition to Dr. Assad’s presidency in Syria.  Hmmmmm.  What could be going on here?

Benny Mileikowski (a/k/a Netanyahu)  has serious troubles in the brothel which is the Zionist Apartheid State.  He is facing 4 separate investigations into his malfeasance as PM.  As the article below correctly points out, he is in need of a diversion.  With public trust eroding and accusations of betrayal appearing more frequently, he must pull something out of his yarmulka to reunite his disgruntled constituency.  He needs a new war.

King Muhammad bin Salmaan, unlovingly referred to as MBS, has similar problems.  While not being accused of corruption himself for the simple reason that he’s the king’s son, he has accused others of the same thing.  He has watched his country’s failures in Yemen and Syria burgeon into serious migrainous headaches which the Iranian government continues to exploit to the detriment of Sunni hegemony in the region.  He, too, needs a diversion.

The alliance of KSA and the ZE is no secret any longer.  Heck, Mileikowski keeps announcing it in every speech like a commercial during the Super Bowl.  The relationship is so tight now that neither party to the alliance can imagine survival without the other.  And the threat?  Why, it’s that old bogeyman,  Iran.  While the Zionists don’t need to declare war with Lebanon or Hizbollah, (their track record is sufficient to establish that relationship), the Saudis have just made it so by declaring a missile fired from Yemen at the Riyaadh airport an “act of war” since,according to the Saudis, the missile was fired by agents of Hizbollah.  So, war it is.

MBS met with Vladimir Putin and discussed the issue of HZB in Lebanon.  I was told by people who are in the know that the Russian president was noncommittal when asked by the imbecile heir apparent what he would do if the KSA had to defend itself against Iranian aggression.  Because Vlad would not give him a straight answer, the princeps principiiflew back to Arabia with the impression that Russia might do nothing to interfere as long as petroleum pricing was stabilized.  That’s what the miserable child molesting parasite actually thinks.

The Zionists in Tel Aviv do not share that view.  Mileikowski himself raised the issue with Vlad the last time they met and, I am told, the Zionist leader was shocked by Vlad’s candor.  He was told that Iran was a “strategic” ally of Russia and that Moscow would not stand still if any party attacked it.  We, at SyrPer, are certain that the Zionists are planning to invade Lebanon to destroy Hizbollah (again!) but are hesitating out of fear that Russia might use its formidable naval and aviation assets to defend Hizbollah.  Another problem might also lead to a stoppage in the Jewish emigration from Russia to the Zionist Settler State, in effect, reducing the amount of Slavic/Khazar DNA in Palestine.

Yet, the Zionist plan is by no means shelved.  We believe that the Zionist invasion will be of a type not necessarily sufficient to incur the wrath of the Kremlin.  It might be a limited assault whose purpose would be to diminish the reputation of HZB as a fighting power and, thus, encourage the Lebanese Army to finish the job.  This will not work.  Instead, we think cooler heads will prevail by using KSA’s broad economic power to debilitate the Lebanese state and its institutions.  We envision massive attacks on the Lebanese Central Bank through withdrawals of accounts from KSA depositors which will discourage investment, tourism and borrowing power.  This too will not work.  It will simply open up Lebanon for a major Iranian incursion designed to supplant the miserable Saudis on every level.

The Arabians and their Ashkenazi Zionist confederates are watching in horror as Donald Trump continually showcases his obesession with North Korea.  Like children seeking attention they don’t deserve, they jump up and down for recognition only to be predictably ignored.

The reason must be that the Pentagon (which has the Prez’s ear) sees no benefit in riling the Persian peacock and its ursine ally in Moscow.  With the entire American  5th fleet docked in Bahrain one has only to imagine the level of destruction the fleet will sustain when Iran unleashes a barrage of ground-to-sea Yakhont-like missiles at the sitting target only a few miles away from its coastline.  Moreover, the brass at the MoD knows full well the power of Iran’s ground forces and the natural tendency to congeal as a fighting force whenever the country is invaded by alien forces.  Unlike North Korea, Iran has no military nuclear program any more and is certified by the U.N.as being in compliance with a treaty signed by all major powers including Germany.  It will be a fool’s errand for any spokesperson to defend an invasion of Iran under such circumstances and a disastrous result could also lead to Trump’s impeachment.

Such rational analyses don’t impress the stupefyingly ignorant apes of Arabia.  Today, MBS hurled new accusations against Iran for the attempted bombing of the Riyaadh airport – conflating HZB and Teheran as though they were one and the same serpent.  Thinking he has the backing of the U.S.A., he might be gearing up for some provocative action against the Islamic State – a provocation certain to energize the American armed forces.  He’s barking at the moon.

Iran has now reacted to the crazy rhetoric from Arabia by warning its Wahhabist enemy about its military power.  With his forces bogged down in Yemen, his proxies in Syria in a shambles and his fate tied to Russia’s whims, MBS is hankering for some real tough love, American style.  MBS is leading his country into a game of Russian Roulette with all the chambers loaded.  So sad.  Sigh.

I have a new source of information here in the U.S. concerning the “Deep State”.  I will be shifting gears to explain how this Deep State impacts Syria and the Greater Middle East. I am absorbing new information and will digest it soon enough.  My source is named Chris.

The Syrian Army and its allies have captured the last major stronghold of Islamic State (IS, former ISIS/ISIL), according to RT Arabic. Iraqi mobilization units also reportedly took part in the operation, local media reports.

Syrian government forces have captured the town of Abu Kamal located in the Euphrates valley on the border with Iraq, according to an RT Arabic correspondent and local TV.  The town was one of the last major settlements held by Islamic State terrorists.

A video published on a YouTube account affliated with the pro-government forces shows Syrian Army soldiers and allied forces from various militia groups as well as Hezbollah fighters celebrating their victory in Abu Kamal. The footage shows Hezbollah fighters posing with the group’s flag as well as Syrian soldiers and allied militia posing with the national Syrian flag.

The city of Deir ez-Zor, which endured years of IS blockade, was breached by the Syrian army with the support of Russian airstrikes early in September.

On November 3, the Russian Defense Ministry said IS-controlled areas in Syria had shrunk to less than 5 percent of the country’s land area. Earlier, the Russian Defense Minister, Sergey Shoigu, said Islamic State controlled “more than 70 percent of Syrian territory” before Russian Air Forces started its operation in the Middle Eastern country.

The liberation of Abu Kamal marks the ultimate end of the territorial ambitions of Islamic State, Joshua Landis, head of the Middle East Studies Department at the University of Oklahoma, told RT. He added that Islamic State has now lost all the major settlements it controlled while being pinned down by the Syrian and Iraqi armies in the border region between the two countries.

“The two armies met up and liberated this last major town [held by Islamic State],” Landis, adding that “this is the end of ISIS as a ‘state’.” He also pointed out that the terrorists are now being prevented from freely moving between Syrian and Iraqi territory, making the fight against them much easier.

Syria War Report – November 7, 2017: Syrian Army Pulverizes Al-Qaeda Positions In Northern Hama

…from SouthFront

While the Syrian Tiger Forces and their allies are preparing for a final push towards the ISIS-held town of al-Bukamal, important developments are also taking place in the area west of the Ithriyah-Khanaser road.

Since October, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) have been conducting a military operation in the area against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda) in order to expand the buffer zone near the Ithriyah-Khanaser part of the Ithriyah-Aleppo highway and to shorten the frontline in northeastern Hama.

Some pro-government sources even speculate that the SAA and the NDF may seek to reach the Abu Duhur Military Airbase, but this would take a large-scale advance, which would require deployment of additional reinforcements.

Recently, government forces have liberated the villages of Abu Ghar, Sarha Janubi, Mushayrifah, Husaywat, Jundya and Rasm Kahal and the hill of Sawan. The SAA and the NDF also entered Sarha Shamali where intense fighting was reported between government troops and terrorists.

Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) terrorists responded by attacking SAA positions north of al-Maqarayh and capturing Umm Turaykiyah and Al-Balil after repelling a government attack on Musharifah.

According to pro-opposition sources, the fighting is ongoing amid constant Russian airstrikes on terrorist weapons depots and convoys. However, the intensity of the strikes is relatively low.

As long as the town of al-Bukamal in eastern Syria is not liberated, the Syrian military cannot deploy the manpower and military equipment to the northeastern Hama frontline, which would allow them to crush the HTS defenses there and to reach the Abu Duhur Military Airbase. However, this moment may be closer than some HTS supporters would like to believe.
