Neo-Ottomanism and Erdogan’s Illusory Sense of Power!

Turkey has placed itself in a strategic dilemma on all sides since it has become at odds with its neighbours in the Middle East, the Balkans, the Caucasus and its allies, in addition to a potential conflict with Russia and Iran over conflicts of interests. 

After 2011, Turkey turned its back on the "Zero Problems" policy, and its actions brought about panic and discontent among its allies, who sought to expel the NATO-country from the military alliance, describing Turkey as an “unreliable ally that pursues its interests selfishly.”

Is it a trap!

We didn’t use chemical weapons; we cannot use it, it’s impossible to be used in our situation for many reasons….when you’re advancing, why would you use chemical weapons?!, underscored President Bashar Al-Assad on December 9, 2019.

In his interview with RAI News 24, His Excellency added that this is a weapon of mass destruction, you talk about thousands of dead or at least hundreds.  That never happened, never – you only have these videos of staged chemical weapons attacks.

 In the recent report that you’ve mentioned, there’s a mismatch between what we saw in the video and what they saw as technicians or as experts.  The amount of chlorine that they’ve been talking about: first of all, chlorine is not a mass destruction material, second, the amount that they found is the same amount that you can have in your house, it exists in many households and used maybe for cleaning and whatever.

That’s what the OPCW organization did – they faked and falsified the report, just because the Americans wanted them to do so.  So, fortunately, this report proved that everything we said during the last few years, since 2013, is correct.  We were right, they were wrong. This is proof; this is concrete proof regarding this issue.

OPCW recently stated about Ltamenah incident that chemical weapons have been used or likely used in Syria according to an investigation by the organization: there are reasonable grounds to believe a chemical was used in the attacks, based on a personal opinion by unidentified member of a military experience of the team!

Syria, on April 9, officially condemned in the strongest terms, what has come in the report of the illegitimate so-called Investigation and Identification Team, and rejects what has been included in it, in form and content.

Syria categorically denies using toxic gases in Ltamenah town or in any city or village, and affirms that the Syrian Army has never used such weapons in the most difficult battles carried out against armed terrorist organizations.

In the meantime, Russia stated that the authors of the report, and consequently the leaders of the OPCW Technical Secretariat, have thus become accomplices in the consistent violation of the basic principles and procedures of objective and unbiased investigations.

The information propagated-for in the said report were gathered mostly from anti-government armed and terrorist groups and pseudo-humanitarian NGOs affiliated with them, including the notorious White Helmets.

With such a tsunami of lies and fabrications, Ian Henderson's recent conclusions after investigating  Douma site, that there was a ‘higher probability that both cylinders were manually placed … rather than being delivered from aircraft' should be revisited.

Mr. Henderson, , a veteran OPCW inspector and specialist chemical engineer with military experience,  stored a copy of his research findings when it became apparent his work would be excluded from the final report. Is this OPCW more than a means of exploitation and a trap by supporters of terrorism as to prolong the ongoing war?!

A humanitarian Urgency

Syria's Minister of Health, Dr. Nizar Yazigi, stated yesterday in statements to media outlets that the sanctions imposed on Syria do hinder the urgent need for ventilators in case of COVID-19 spread.

One cannot but to wonder how come! Is it possible in the global village of today to impose and even tighten sanctions against human beings? It is indeed a crime against humanity to deny humans their basic needs, particularly medicine, health care and human life safety and medical needs!

What have the Syrians, Iranian, Russian, or others, done against others, other than fighting terrorism and safeguarding their rights, sovereignty, territory and independence?

Despite the outbreaks of one million Coronavirus cases worldwide, Washington is blocking international efforts to combat it

 Despite the wide spread of the Corona epidemic and the mobilization of the whole world to support international efforts to confront this virus, the United States, continues to politicize crises to achieve its ambitions.

The US still insists on imposing coercive economic measures against sovereign states that reject US dictates, despite their awareness of the impact of these dangerous measures in fighting this anti-virus .

After exceeding one million and 200,000 Corona infections and more than 65,000 deaths in the world, according to news agencies, Washington continues to hinder the untiring efforts of various countries to combat it.

Lift Unjust Sanctions

COVID-19 is borderless threat against all everywhere. The need is dire for a united coordinated effort as to face and defeat this pandemic.

The case in Syria is even more humanitarian given the unjust imposed sanctions and more than 9 years of terrorism against the Syrians and their country.

Many calls and demands were made by different countries and bodies as to lift the unjust sanctions imposed as to help in the fight against such a pandemic.

"We call for complete and immediate lifting of unilateral coercive measures," Zhang Jun, China's permanent representative to the United Nations, also president of the Security Council for the month of March, told the council's video-teleconferencing meeting on the situation in Syria,''

"We are seriously concerned about the negative impact of unilateral sanctions on countries' capacity to respond to the pandemic, especially for vulnerable countries like Syria," he said. "Civilians and innocent people are suffering severely from those sanctions.''
