Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos to ST: Liberation of Eastern Ghouta Will Destroy US, UK Aspirations of Conquering Damascus

The liberation of East Ghouta from the Wahhabist terrorist organizations by Syrian army will destroy the aspirations of Washington and London of conquering Damascus and it will be an act of deliverance for the people of both East Ghouta and Damascus, according to Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos, British publisher and editor of Politics First, who asserted that every advance that the Syrian army makes, weakens the Wahhabist terrorist threat to UK national security.

In an interview with the Syriatimes e-newspaper, Dr. Papadopoulos made it clear that the American and British governments are falsely portraying the liberation of East Ghouta as the Syrian Government "slaughtering its own civilians" because Washington and London know that their aspirations of conquering Damascus, through the use of Wahhabist terrorist groups, are soon to be destroyed by the men and women of the Syrian army.

German MP Christian Blex to ST: Our Trip to Syria Caused Quite a Stir in German Media

German politician, Dr. Christian Blex, who recently led a parliamentary delegation to Syria, has underscored that reactions to Syria events on social media show that many people in Germany no longer believe in their country’s state-owned media reports about Syria.

Syrian MP: Washington to Use Its Influence over Some Kurdish Forces to Save Erdogan’s Face

The US Administration will use its influence over some Kurdish forces in order to find exit to Erdogan from his aggression on Afrin region without humiliation, according to the Syrian Member of Parliament Dr. Ahmad Mer’ei, who asserted that there must be a Syrian-Iranian-Russian agreement to foil the Turkish regime’s plot in the region.

“The US President Donald Trump won’t allow Erdogan to achieve military triumph over Kurds in Afrin and -at the same time- the US troops won’t attack the ‘People’s Protection Units’ as well as Turkey won’t dare attack the ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ in Menbej area where the US troops are deployed,” The MP said.

Mer'ei expects a joint Turkish-US action in Menbej and Senjar areas.

“The Turkish regime’s failure to make advance in Afrin in two months embarrasses the Turkish army, which is the second-largest military force in NATO… If Turkey makes any advance in Afrin region, it will be subject to endings,” Dr. Mer’ei added.

Military Expert to ST: Syrian Army Carried out Quick Military Operation against ISIS Terrorists South of Damascus

Military and strategic expert, retired Brigadier-General Haitham Hassoun has stressed that Syrian army has carried out a quick military operation against ISIS terrorists in south of Damascus amid the continuity of operations against foreign-backed-terrorist groups in East Ghouta.

He told the Syriatimes e-newspaper that the operations, carried out yesterday and today, prevented the expansion of ISIS terrorists and led to the departure of terrorists from al-Qadam neighborhood.

“What happened over the past hours in the south of Damascus was an attempt by terrorist organizations positioned in al-Hajar al-Aswad and Yarmouk camp areas, which reject the old deal, that provides for the departure of terrorists from al-Qadam neighborhood, to relieve the pressure on terrorists in the East Ghouta of Damascus,” the expert said.

Government Spares No Effort to Eliminate all Forms of Violence against Women

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated in all countries around the world on March 8th. People everywhere are called on to highlight the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and to be inspired to take action to promote equality and inclusivity.

Women in Syria are key players not only in everyday life, but also in the socio-political fields. They assumed high positions in the state including, presidential advisor, speaker of parliament, minister, directors general, not to mention their participation in all walks of life shoulder to shoulder with men to build modern Syria.

However, the ongoing terrorist war on the country put new obstacles in front of Syrian women and forced them to face increasing level of violence under terrorism in a bid to bring them back to the ages of backwardness and ignorance.

Marking IWD, the ‘’Assawari’’ Civil Society Association in Lattakia province held a symposium on violence against women and ways to empower women to face this destructive and humiliating phenomenon. The association hosted Mr. Ghayath Zaybok, the Executive Director of the Family Planning Association in Lattakia province to deliver a lecture on Gender Based Violence (GBV) against women which constitutes a form of discrimination and violation of women fundamental freedoms and rights.
