#Syria|Regime and RU extend the fight to all South Damascus

The Syrian regime extended its military campaign on the areas of the South of Damascus to include some sectors controlled by the armed opposition this morning, after  fighting in the previous two days was confined to areas controlled by Daesh control and HTS.

The regime militias bombed the rebel positions of the armed opposition factions in Daboul Street in Silikha district at Tadamon neighborhood, amid attempts by the regime’s militias to advance at the expense of the opposition in that front.

The Syrian regime also targeted the town of “Beit Samh” under the control of the armed opposition yesterday, Thursday, April 19, an air strike targeted the area behind the municipality building and caused material damage.

Regime forces shelled the outskirt of Yalda with surface to surface missiles, in addition Yarmouk refugee camp with mortars.

The regime also broke into HTS positions in the west of Yarmouk refugee camp amid heavy shelling over the positions under their control, despite ongoing negotiations of their departure to Idlib.

Sources close to the liberation of the Sham said the fighters responded to that attack and killed a number the regime militias, and Iba news agency (HTS news agency) published pictures of the regime militias killed.

The regime and the Russians are shuffling the cards  in the South of Damascus in order to end it simultaneously and get rid of the HTS and Daesh and to move the opposition factions towards northern Syria so that Damascus and its countryside can be declared completely safe and free of any presence of the opposition or the extremist organizations.

Iran’s Real Enemy in #Syria

“What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women, and children?” President Trump asked Russia and Iran Friday night after launching air strikes against the Syrian regime. “The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep.”

Despite his speechwriters’ best efforts, if there is one thing Donald Trump and Iran share it is an inability to be shamed. Over the last seven years no country has done more, financially and militarily, to back the Bashar al-Assad regime’s mass murder of Syrians than the Islamic Republic of Iran, a theocracy that claims to rule from a moral high ground. Within hours of joint American, French, and British targeted military strikes in Syria, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani called Assad to pledge his solidarity.

At a time of great economic hardship in Iran, Tehran has provided billions of dollars to arm, train, and pay tens of thousands of Arab, Afghan, and Pakistani Shia militants help Assad crush Sunni Islamist rebels. Tehran, the victim of heinous chemical weapons attacks by Saddam Hussein three decades ago, has provided Assad the means to deliver these same weapons, while simultaneously denying that he uses them. The question is why?
