Good news for Syria
Syria's army and allied forces seized a new neighbourhood from rebels in east Aleppo overnight, a monitor said Monday, and now hold around two-thirds of the former rebel bastion.The army seized the Qadi Askar neighbourhood after earlier capturing the Karm al-Myessar, Karm al-Qatarji and Karm al-Tahan neighbourhoods, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The Britain-based group said the advances left the large Shaar neighbourhood effectively encircled by government forces and in danger of falling from rebel control.
With the capture of Shaar, the army would hold 70 percent of east Aleppo, four years after rebels first seized it.Reporting on that news must be tough for the one man show that is SOHR!
UN Security Council Vote Today on Aleppo Ceasefire Plan
According to so many Egypt was Syria's new buddy..... Recall my wondering where the heck this jibber jabber about Egypt was coming from? Egyptian Troops in Syria? " These Allegations Exist Only In the Imagination Of Those Who Promote Them"
The United Nations Security Council is due to vote Monday on a resolution calling for a seven-day cease-fire in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo and unimpeded access for the delivery of humanitarian aid.
The resolution drafted by Egypt, Spain and New Zealand says the council would consider seven-day extensions to the halt in fighting. The text bans attacks "with any weapons," including airstrikes and mortars that have been used to devastate large areas in both rebel-held and government-controlled parts of Aleppo.
A ceasefire at this time. Who would benefit from that?
The new resolution also demands the implementation of a political process outlined in a December 2015 resolution
During a news conference Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov described the resolution as a "provocative step."Psyops are us?
Of course western media is very 'concerned' about the alleged JK Rowling fan who, it is claimed, tweets out of Aleppo... Nice psyop. Saw a whole handful of stories about this PR operation this morning! The Twitter account was deleted yesterday! Wonder who really deleted it??
