Firil center asserts outcome of Hama countryside battle will tip scales

Undoubtedly, Syrian Arab army will achieve a major victory against foreign -backed terrorist originations in Jobar, Barzeh, Qaboun, Harasta districts in Damascus and in the Eastern Ghouta of Damascus.

This victory will be enhanced with another victory in the northern countryside of Hama and will tip the scales, according to Firil Center for Studies in Berlin.

The center recently published two reports on attacks on east of Damascus and on the northern countryside of Hama province where important details were unveiled. 

Zionist apartheid

The Israeli occupation authorities have been pursuing a racial discrimination policy against the Palestinian people since the very beginning of the Israeli occupation in 1948. Moreover, the International community, especially the UN Security Council have been turning a blind eye and a deaf ear tothe Zionist racist and  repressive measures against the Palestinians.

A new UN report says Israel has been imposing an apartheid regime of racial discrimination against the Palestinian people.The report, commissioned by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), said  that Israel has established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.

Turkey and the Double Game

It seems clearly that the Turkish government seeks to play with two papers of a high degree of contradiction, namely the investment in terrorism on the one hand and  the claim to fight it on the other.

But to take a  close look at the regional scene characterized with violence especially after the emergence of  the terrorist organization (Daesh ), any one discovers  the discrepancy in the Turkish attitude towards what is going on in Syria during  the last six years.

Needless to say, the Turkish government was the main supportive and investor of terrorism where it has used all its territories , airports and security services  to bring terrorists from all the  world to practice all kinds of killing and destruction in Syria.

Moreover, the Turkish authorities have  practiced  in Syria everything that is  contrary to the  international law and the UN Charter and the rules of  good neighborhood where it  violates  the Syrian airspace in addition to the  direct aggression on Syrian territory by  full partnership with the terrorist  groups.

Turkey can’t play both roles of supporting terrorism& fighting it simultaneously

Despite the keenness of the Syrian government delegation to make Astana and Geneva talks a successin a way that would serve Syria’s higher national interests, it is very difficult to achieve success in these talks, because one of the states that claims to be among the guarantors of the talks is hindering the achievement of any tangible progress. Turkey can’t play both roles of causing a fire and fighting it at the same time. Turkey is now playing the role of causing fire and must withdraw its invasive forces from Syria and respect the statement of Astana 1 meeting that stressed the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria.
