Sheikha Asia al-Mashi to ST: There must be Syrian tribal Elders Council to serve national interests


The rejection of the Turkish-American plot in the north of Syria by Syrian tribes and clans is important and it is enough to prevent the implementation of the plot because the occupier always seeks to get support and loyalty for its presence in the Syrian territories in order to guarantee the safety of its forces from any possible resistance.

This is what Sheikha Asia al-Mashi said during an interview with the Syria Times e-newspaper about the recent meeting of Syrian clans and tribes held in Aleppo countryside and the role of rural woman in defending homeland.

“Over the past years, there have been many attempts to attract Syrian tribes and clans by gulf regimes that have tribal background but they failed as Syrian clans and tribes are aware of the plot and conspiracy being hatched against Syria,” the Deputy Director of the Popular Committee Office of Counter- Terrorism in Syria Sheikha al-Mashi clarified.

She indicated that there are hundreds of clans and tribes in Aleppo and Raqqa provinces and they are united due to the fact that most of them descend from the same ancestor.

“All Syrian tribes and clans are patriots and they stand by the Syrian state,” Sheikha al-Mashi asserted, referring to the fact that some of the members of the tribes were misled at the beginning of the war on Syria but they settled their situations in accordance with amnesty decrees issued by president Bashar al-Assad.

Asked about the importance of the meeting held recently in Athriya town in Aleppo countryside, Sheikha al-Mashi replied: “The venue, timing and the huge number of participants reflected the importance of the meeting…The venue itself [Athriya town] was very important because it was a battlefield before liberating it by Syrian soldiers and tribesmen. It is not only the venue but also the huge number of participants, who asserted their adherence to unity in defending homeland.. The participants addressed a strong message to Syrian people’s enemies, who are trying to revive the conspiracy that is now in its final stage.”

Former U.S. Congresswoman to ST: regional disunity allows the US policy of destruction

Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has underscored that the Israel-first forces inside the U.S. will do everything to maintain U.S. troops in Syria or else Israel and Rothschild, Cheney, Richardson, and others of Genie Energy will have to forgo the profits from Israel's theft of the Golan.

She has told the Syria Times e-newspaper that US President Donald Trump has been overruled by the Swamp Monsters he has appointed to his White House.

“This is a crisis of his own making for which I have little political sympathy.  However, with each victory of the Israel-First US Deep State, it will be harder for President Trump to recover if he is truly interested in bringing U.S. troops home from Syria, Afghanistan, and withdrawing from NATO.  These are all very positive pronouncements from the president, but he has not been able to accomplish a single one of them,” the US politician added.

EU member to ST: Syrians great and proud people

The EU and U.S. unjustified sanctions of recent years are likely to have negative effects on Washington and the west for decades as they have lost their credibility and moral leadership all over the world, according to the member of the European Parliament from Germany Udo Voigt, who has affirmed that the EU states are doing what the U.S wants.

Voigt’s remarks came during an interview with the Syria Times e-newspaper on the European Union’s sanctions against Syria and the union’s future policy towards it.

Systematic behavior to support terrorism

The repeated Israeli attacks against Syrian territories have become systematic behavior with the aim of protecting Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIS terrorists.  Any attack against the Syrian Arab army forms a direct support to terrorism, taking into account that the Syrian Arab army is fighting terrorism on behalf of the entire world. Israel threatens security and peace not only in the region but also in the world which will have serious repercussions on the international situation.

Last night, Israeli forces of occupation launched waves of missile strikes against several Syrian positions.  As was the case of its predecessors,  this aggression comes in the framework of the constant Israeli attempts to prolong the crisis in Syria and the war of terrorism and to raise the morale of the remnants of terrorists.

British analyst: US defeat in Syria poses a challenge to Washington’s hold over the Middle East

The unofficial alliance of Russia, Syria and Iran, which has emerged on the back of the US defeat in Syria, poses a challenge to Washington’s hold over the Middle East, according to the British political analyst Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos, who clarified to the Syria Times e-newspaper why Washington seeks to separate Iraq and Iran from each other and what are the outcomes of the US defeat in Syria.

“Mindful of, and furious at, their defeat in Syria, the Americans are determined to reassert their dominance over the Middle East and, in doing so, reassure their allies in the region - Israel, Saudi Arabia and the other Gulf countries - that America will resist any attempts by other countries to challenge its influence there. And what better way of demonstrating that resolve than by Washington attempting to exert further pressure on Iran,” said Dr. Papadopoulos, the founder and editor of Politics First magazine.
