Global Research: US sanctions have denied the Syrian people medication

Ottawa,(ST)-The Canadian Global Research website confirmed that unilateral coercive economic measures deprive the Syrian people of medicine and medical equipment that could enhance their ability to confront the Corona epidemic that is sweeping the world.

The website, in the context of an article written by Andrew Korybko, an analyst specializing in American strategy in the Asian-African region, said that the failure of the United States to achieve its goals in Syria through the terrorist war prompted it to use other types of wars, especially by targeting the health sector in an attempt to achieve its plans

Revelations on UK Media Misinformation Campaign Against Syria- Since War Began

British Canard news website had earlier in 2016 revealed the role of the UK government and mainstream media in ‘polishing’ the image of terrorists in Syria, presenting them to public opinion as a "moderate opposition". This is only a drop of the flood of colonial Western methods, led by the United States and Britain in their running of the terrorist war on Syria, creating publicity material of media misinformation against it.

New documents were revealed by British writer Mark Curtis, published on Middle East Eye website, confirming that the UK began covert operations against Syria in early 2012, that is, since the beginning of the terrorist war on it. UK was closely involved in smuggling arms shipments to terrorists, training and organizing them under the name "Moderate Opposition” in a years-long operation, in cooperation with US and Saudi regime.

'The end of an era': oil price collapse may force Saudis to rein in arms spending

The world’s fifth largest weapons buyer is eating up its reserves - and its political clout.

Saudi Arabia may be forced to forego new weapons contracts and delay already-agreed weapons purchases as a financial crisis grips the kingdom, experts predict.

The expected delay of new weapons deals could have long-term political repercussions for the country under the rule of Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince and de facto ruler who has waged a bloody war with neighbouring Yemen.

Saudi Arabia is facing an unprecedented budget crunch because of the collapse of the oil markets and the global economic turmoil caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has reduced oil demand for the foreseeable future.

“I have no doubt, this is the end of an era. The era of the Gulf having all this money is over,” said Bruce Riedel, a senior fellow at Brookings in Washington and 30-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency, who has served as an adviser on Middle East issues to several US administrations.

China tells U.S. to stop 'unreasonable suppression' of Huawei

Beijing has urged the United States to stop the "unreasonable suppression of Huawei and Chinese enterprises" after Washington announced new export controls to restrict the tech giant's access to semiconductor technology.

The latest restrictions on the world's second-largest smartphone manufacturer, which is at the centre of US spying allegations, are a new escalation in the US-China battle for global technological dominance.

"The Chinese government will firmly uphold Chinese firms' legitimate and legal rights and interests," the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement on Saturday.

German website: Erdogan's involvement in the Libyan crisis worsens Turkey's position within NATO

Berlin,(ST)-A German press report confirmed that the involvement of Recep Tayyip Erdogan's regime in the Libyan crisis and its support for armed militias in this country worsens Turkey's position within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), pointing to the continued violation by this system of the UN Security Council's decision to ban the export of arms to Libya.

"Turkey's support for the Fayez al-Sarraj militia has exacerbated Ankara's isolation in NATO and has contributed to the deterioration of Turkey's relationship with the alliance," according to the German news website Telepolis, noting that "Turkey stands alone ... and the gap with the rest of the alliance members increases."

Several media reports revealed earlier that a large number of mercenaries from the Turkish regime had arrived from Syria to Libya through flights on Libyan Airlines and an airline owned by Abdel Hakim Belhadj, a terrorist al-Qaeda leader based in Turkey.

The German website confirmed that there is increasing evidence of the presence of al-Qaeda elements within the Fayez al-Sarraj militia, noting that the latter's relationship with extremist organizations, foremost of which is the Brotherhood, is clear, and therefore placing weapons in the hands of these organizations is very dangerous.
