  The Syrian forces, backed by an array of allies, keep fast advancing in Deir ez-Zor fronts against ISIS terrorist group, raising hackles of the Americans who decided to deploy the Washington-backed militias to the strategic city in a bid to not fall behind the other actors in competition in eastern Syria.   The Deir ez-Zor city is located in Syria’s east and is considered a gate to the neighboring Iraq. Major part of the city, except for some small neighborhoods, fell to the terrorists in the initial stages of the Syrian conflict ...

Fatima’s husband and two of her brothers were killed by fighters in Syria. Fearing for her children’s lives, she escaped her homeland and embarked on an arduous journey to Morocco where the family posed as Moroccans and were able to cross into Europe. “Arriving in France was like the end of a bad dream, it was a new start for us.” Less than six months later, Fatima and her children are now begging on the streets.

Daesh is not dead and buried; it is another tool in the war on terror

1396/6/14 | 18:59
  As the pick-up trucks and black-clad soldiers of Daesh overran the city of Raqqa in northern Syria and declared the establishment of a new ‘Caliphate’ in 2014, the world watched in astonishment.    Some were taken in by the emergence of this shadowy group, seeing it as the new saviour of the Muslim world, daring to do what the monarchies and regimes in the Middle East had been too afraid, apathetic or sold out to do. They declared that the regional countries were “Zionist puppets” and so the task had passed to this new ...

US siege on civilians in Syria aimed to overshadow resistance’s achievements: Iran

1396/6/13 | 18:59
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has slammed the United States’ move to impose an aerial blockade on buses carrying women and children as part of a deal between the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement and the Daesh Takfiri terrorists. “The US move to lay a siege to women and children seems to be illogical given the country’s history of cooperation with Daesh [terrorist group],” Qassemi said on Sunday.

The Syrian rebellion enters its endgame

1396/6/1 | 18:59
  Credible reports centred on the collapse of Ahrar Al-Sham in north-west Syria point toward an important shift in the six-year Syrian rebellion. The group was widely regarded as the largest and most potent non-jihadi element of the Syrian rebellion. By definition, therefore, its collapse is a key indicator of jihadist domination in that part of Syria.     The term “jihadi” in this context refers to groups whose outlook is either internationalist or whose activities are not purely focused on changing the ruling system ...

Syria: a testament to international moral bankruptcy

1396/6/1 | 18:59
  Much has been written about Syria’s civil war which has engulfed the country for the past six years, but sadly the mounting death and destruction in Syria has long since become mere statistics. The international community grew comfortably numb to the horror, the likes of which we haven’t seen since World War II.   Both internal and external players have been nurturing their vested interests by prolonging the deadly conflict, hoping to improve their position to serve their long-term objectives. The irony is that none of the ...

The U.S. is stealing Syria’s ancient artifacts

1396/5/27 | 18:59
  The Lebanese Al-Hadith news agency believes that the construction of numerous military bases in Syria by the United States is a meaningless task from the security and military perspectives. These bases are far from each other and in some cases, not more than a dozen soldiers are stationed in them.     The Lebanese agency poses the question of the secrets behind the plurality of US military bases in Syria?   Local sources near a US military base between the “Georud” area and the “Al-Zamir” airport in Damascus, ...

Lack of Investigation into US Strikes in Syria Proves Idlib Attack Was Staged

1396/5/26 | 18:59

However, ...

Why Syria partition not possible?

1396/5/14 | 18:59
Syria was one of the most stable West Asian countries.   Except for some short periods of times like the military coup of General Hafez al-Assad in 1970, since its independence in1946 from the French mandate, Syria was one of the most stable West Asian countries.    But after the Arab uprisings of 2011, it fell victim to a plot developed by the opponent regional countries and Western powers and the resultant military interventions that transformed the country to the world’s safest havens for terrorist groups. The war in Syria after ...

Why Iran did not get involved in the US-led coalition in Syria

1396/5/12 | 18:59
  An enemy whose goal is to make governments and nations follow him tries different methods. It is not the case that he always speaks with the language of threats.    Sometimes, he flatters you and sometimes he writes a letter saying that we should go and cooperate with the Americans so that together we can “resolve global matters”. He speaks to you like this. You might be tempted to go and cooperate with a superpower so that you can resolve an international matter.     This is how they speak in the discourse of ...

Fear and Trepidation in Tel Aviv: Is Israel Losing the Syria War?

1396/5/4 | 18:59
  Israel, which has played a precarious role in the Syrian war since 2011, is furious to learn that the future of the conflict is not to its liking. The six-year-old Syria war is moving to a new stage, perhaps its final. The Syrian regime is consolidating its control over most of the populated centers, while Daesh is losing ground fast – and everywhere.     Areas evacuated by the rapidly disintegrated militant group are up for grabs. There are many hotly contested regions sought over by the government of Bashar al-Assad ...
