Yury Veselov, military observer, Inforos

The Defense Ministry of Turkey officially confirmed on June 16, 2019 that Turkish artillery was involved in shelling Syrian governmental army positions near Tell Bazam in the “de-escalation zone” in the northwest of the Idlib province. This was allegedly “made in agreement with the Russian side as response to accurate data indicating from where two Turkish observer posts were attacked.”

11 June 2019 — Syrian Perspective

Don’t you just love hypocrisy?  Don’t you love it when Evangelicals like Mike Pompeo and Mike Pence pontificate about Christianity and their ideological love for all things Zionist?  Isn’t it just beautiful when Syrian security services come upon 4 tons of C-4 all manufactured in the United States?  On June 1, 2019, that’s exactly what happened.

Explaining Russia’s Position on Idlib

4 June 2019 — The Saker

by Ollie Richardson for The Saker Blog

Over the past five years my work in the information space has been consciously aimed at explaining why the Russian military does and doesn’t do certain things, whether it be in relation to Ukraine, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Venezuela, etc, and why demanding that Putin bombs everything in sight is exactly what the CIA wants so-called “pro-Russians” to say. Yet I haven’t exhausted (maybe I never will exhaust it?) this topic because it is so vast and, ultimately, complex. And it is because of this seemingly insurmountable complexity that questions like “Why doesn’t Russia liberate all of Ukraine”, “Why doesn’t Russia save Donetsk and Lugansk in the same way it saved Crimea?”, “Why doesn’t Russia boot America out of Syria?”, etc are asked on social media.

25 May 2019 — Revolution Dispatch

The fiction that the “humanitarian” regime change complex has constructed around Syria is now so thoroughly debunked that the war machine is being forced to shift into a frantic mode of damage control. When they first made their absurd claims, they should have anticipated that they’d eventually have to face the scrutiny of journalists, forensic researchers, and the public at large.

Washington revives Syria chemical weapons propaganda as pretext for war

23 May 2019 — WSWS

Washington is once again threatening a military attack against Syria over the alleged use of chemical weapons by the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

If executed, this attack would be the third in as many years by the Trump administration, which rained missiles down upon the war-ravaged country in April 2017 and April 2018 using unsubstantiated allegations of chemical weapons use as a pretext.

22 May 2019 — WSWS

Just days after President Donald Trump threatened to put an “official end” to Iran, Washington has threatened renewed military aggression against Syria based on unsubstantiated charges of the use of chemical weapons in the military campaign being waged by Damascus against Al Qaeda-linked militias in the northwestern province of Idlib.

Idlib -Reportage from the Last Front in Syria By Andre Vltchek

5 March 2019 — New Eastern Outlook

SY1

For a while, all the guns have fallen silent.

I am near Idlib, the last stronghold of the terrorists in Syria. The area where the deadliest anti-government fighters, most of them injected into Syria from Turkey, with Saudi, Qatari and Western ‘help’, are literally holed up, ready for the final showdown.
