Predictably, the US, most of its allies and the compliant UN are shrieking for a cease fire in Idlib. This is incredibly hypocritical, but that too was predictable. The US did carpet bombing in the Syrian city of Raqqa, killing almost everyone, just as it had done in Dresden in 1945. Now it wants us to believe it is a humanitarian?
The Turks are also crying for a cease-fire. They want to prevent the Russians and Syrians from firing on them as they blend in with their terrorist pals and help them shell the Syrians. Gullible Westerners are easy targets for Turkish propaganda.
The US goal is to protect the terrorists and their sponsor Turkey. After all, the goal of the so-called “War on Terror” has always been to expel Bashir al-Assad from power while pretending to fight terrorists, and that will never change as long as the US is allied with Israel (as we explained here and here, which in turn will never change until the US church turns back to Christ and stops worshipping the idol that is Israel).
Residents who left the Idlib zone tell of the atrocities by militants
ALEPPO, Feb 29 - RIA Novosti. Civilians leaving the Idlib de-escalation zone on the territory controlled by the Syrian government told of the outrages committed by the militants.
Several dozen people were able to leave the settlements controlled by the militants of the Idlib de-escalation zone through a humanitarian corridor in the province of Aleppo. The refugees were men only. With almost nothing but light items and documents. The terrorists did not allow them to take their belongings with them.
“It’s really bad there – they don’t let us live in peace, they take away the money, they take away the houses, the furniture. They can throw us in jail at any time if we try to object,” one of the refugees, Fawzi Elhaj Jamal, told reporters.
These people were able to send their families earlier – before the escalation in the Idlib de-escalation zone. As a rule, civilians tend to move to Aleppo, because there you can find housing and work, enrol their children in school. But militants, as a rule, did not let out the adult men, trying to force them to join their ranks.
“They treat us like animals there. It’s very dangerous there. I hope our troops will soon return all these lands to Syria,” said another refugee, Mahmoud Nashif.
This release was preceded by the joint work of officers of the Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of the Opposing Sides in Syria, provincial authorities, spiritual leaders and influential sheikhs. At the exit from the de-escalation zone, civilians were met by specially prepared buses, and Russian military police escorted them to Aleppo.
In Aleppo, many were met by their children and grandchildren, whom they had not seen because of the war for several years. The authorities promised to resolve issues with re-issuance of documents and find a job in the specialty for anyone who wants one. In the city today, experts in all areas are very in demand. Primarily in construction and industry.
Meanwhile, the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone is still alarming. According to the head of the Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in the SAR, Rear Admiral Oleg Zhuravlev, violations of the cessation of hostilities by illegal armed groups continue as before. Over the past day, 25 shellings were recorded.
