According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the strikes which began late on Thursday and continued through early Friday, targeted a series of residential buildings in the town of Mayadin.

“The toll includes 42 children. They were families seeking refuge in the town’s municipal building,” it said in a Friday statement.

Why the hell is Norway’s Military in Syria?

“The ridiculous Norwegian army”?????

I do not believe that Norway’s special forces can be labeled ridiculous by any standard.

Their Norwegian Marinejegerkommandoen (MJK) and Forsvarets Spesialkommando (FSK) cooperate and cross train with Special Air Services (SAS) and Special Boat Service (SBS), Delta Force and the Navy SEALs among others.

And although I like your work, Partisangirl, they will kick your ass any time.

US-led coalition strike against Syrian pro-govt forces ‘unlawful’ – Russia

US-led coalition strike against Syrian pro-govt forces ‘unlawful’ – Russia:

The US-led coalition strike on a pro-government convoy in Syria is illegitimate and represents yet another violation of Syria’s sovereignty, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

“The American command explained the strike on pro-government Syrian forces, saying that these forces represented a threat to opposition which cooperates with the US-led coalition,” Lavrov said on Friday. “Whatever the reason for the US command to make this decision, this strike is illegitimate and unlawful. It’s yet another harsh violation of Syria’s sovereignty.”

U.S. Attacks Syrian Government Forces – It Now Has To Make Its Choice

U.S. Attacks Syrian Government Forces – It Now Has To Make Its Choice:

Addendum added below

The Syrian army is on the way to liberate the ISIS besieged city of some 100,000 and garrison of Deir Ezzor in the east of the country. The U.S. has trained a few thousand “New Syrian Army” insurgents in Jordan and is reportedly prepared to march these and its own forces from Jordan through the east-Syrian desert all the way up to Raqqa and Deir Ezzor. About a year ago it occupied the al-Tanf (al-Tanaf) border station which consists of only a few buildings in the mid of the desert. The station between Syria and Iraq near the Jordan border triangle was previously held by a small ISIS group.

A U.S. move from the south up towards the Euphrates would cut off the Syrian government from the whole south-east of the country and from its people in Deir Ezzor. While that area is sparsely populated it also has medium size oil and gas fields and is the land connection to the Syrian allies in Iraq.

US Coalition Jets Strike Assad Convoy In Southern Syria – #WW3

US Coalition Jets Strike Assad Convoy In Southern Syria:

With most expecting Trump to strike North Korea as part of his next foreign military adventure-cum-distraction from the chaos in D.C., the president once again surprised everyone by pulling a lighting bolt, striking twice in one month in the same place.

According to Reuters coalition jets have struck an Assad convoy in Southern Syria; near Tanf where US and British special operations forces have been training Syrian rebel fighters near the border with Iraq and Jordan. A US-led coalition spokesperson has confirmed that coalition strikes in southern Syria struck Syrian government militia “after it moved against US-backed forces in Syria.”

According to a BuzzFeed News reporter, Syrian rebels based with the US Special Forces in the area said that militia supporting the Syrian army has been nearby as well.

State Department Accuses Assad Of Covering Up Mass Killings In Syria

State Department Accuses Assad Of Covering Up Mass Killings In Syria:

Just over a month after the US launched a cruise missile attack at Syria, US relations with Syria are deteriorating rapidly once more after the State Department accused the Syrian government of carrying out mass killings of thousands of prisoners and burning the bodies in a large crematorium outside the capital.

According to Reuters, Stuart Jones, the acting assistant secretary of near eastern affairs, told reporters on Monday that the State Department believes that about 50 detainees a day are being hanged at Saydnaya military prison, about 45 minutes from Damascus. Many of the bodies, it said, are then being burned in the prison’s crematorium in order to hide evidence of mass murder.

Report: U.S., British Forces Enter Southern Syria Alongside Terrorists; Is A Bigger Battle Shaping Up? – #WW3


Report: U.S., British Forces Enter Southern Syria Alongside Terrorists; Is A Bigger Battle Shaping Up?:

Days after reports that Damascus was on high alert due to increased U.S. troop levels on the Jordanian border and an apparent preparation for an invasion from the south and southeast, the United States and Britain have indeed pushed into Syria from the very location earlier reports suggested would be used.

Fighting alongside jihadist terrorist organization, Jaysh Mughawr al-Thurah, a subsidiary of the Free Syrian Army, U.S. and British forces were filmed traveling through the Tanf border crossing in Homs governate. The troops were apparently heading towards the Hamimah area.

The reports were released first from the SMART News Agency, which writes that approximately 150 U.S. and British military personnel have entered Syria from Jordan.

The U.S. Trying to Make War — Not Peace — In Syria

The U.S. Trying to Make War — Not Peace — In Syria:

The U.S. has long asserted itself as a peacemaker in the ongoing war in Syria, attempting to paint the country’s president, Bashar al-Assad, as the root cause of the conflict. At the same time, the United States government maintains that peace would be impossible without American interference, which, of course, comes with the added aim of ousting Assad.

However, anyone who has been following the conflict closely should know this is not the case – at all. Never mind that the U.S. openly destroyed Vietnam, Korea, Iraq, Libya, and Yemen, to name a few; America’s conduct in Syria has been far from peaceful.

Russia’s Syria De-Escalation Zones Deal Is Very, Very Clever

Hmmh.


Russia’s Syria De-Escalation Zones Deal Is Very, Very Clever:

It makes it possible for the Syrian army to start recapturing the east from ISIS without giving up on defeat of al-Qaeda in the long term

IMO the “de-escalation zones” are a clever trick. Thank God.

IMO Putin and Lavrov are even more clever than I had thought. The Astana process proposal for “de-escalation zones” in Syria has something for everyone:
