– Breaking news: 13 civilians were killed by Russian & Assad regime airstrikes on #Idlib and #Hama Provinces today, including 5 children and 4 women. More than 100 airstrikes were reported. No rebel fighters were killed by airstrikes, all victims are civilians. White Helmets rescued many.

Serious escalation as it that seems that 2 Turkish soldiers were injured by Assad bombing of #Turkish posts in #Idlib. Turkish Helicopters headed to the area to rescue them. Let us also not forget that more than 200 #Syrians have been killed in the same campaign.

#RussianForces killed Mohammad al Shawwa, a member of #SCD, in a bombing near and an ambulance while he was driving it near al Rakaya village in #Idlib suburbs, as he arrived the site where Russian forces bombed before, May 4. #Syria …

– Idlib par @firasabdullah_

2 – Idlib :

– « Assad et la Russie bombardent les hôpitaux d’Idlib, dernier bastion des rebelles”. Why Russia is destroying hospitals in Syria (again)

#SyrianRegime forces killed Mustafa al Masri, medical personnel, in #QalatAlMadiq town in #Hama suburbs, May 3. #Syria

– While Syria Direct was interviewing al-Judi he noted that\ warplanes were actively conducting airstrikes in the areas where his team worked, and that his team had been nearly hit several times while evacuating injured civilians.

– Hundreds of thousands of civilians in Idlib and Hama have nowhere to run – and the risk of major casualties remains severe should these governorates again turn into battlegrounds.  Divisions in the regime between competing military commanders and the rivalry between Russia and Iran might stave off large-scale military action on Idlib for now

– UN says barrel bombs raining down on civilians as part of attacks launched by Syria and Russia are ‘worst in 15 months’

#Syrie: des hôpitaux hors-service après des bombardements dans le nord-ouest

#RussianForces bombed al Latamena Surgical #Hospital in al Latamena town in #Hama suburbs, for the second day in a row. The hospital went out of service, Apr 28. #Syria

3 – Aide humanitaire :

– “For years the #Assad regime has used the withholding of aid as a weapon of war, and the international community continues to allow this to happen,” said Dr. Zaki Lababidi, president of @sa_council.

@SenatorRisch The humanitarian toll of the Syrian war, at the hands of brutal dictator Bashar al-Assad and his supporters in Russia and Iran, has been devastating. I convened a hearing on this issue & heard compelling testimony on the real crisis in Syria. My remarks:

– Ben Stiller lends voice to #Syria n refugees as White Helmets warn of Russian escalation – CNNPolitics

4 – Refugees:

– In-depth – ‘The SAMS mission in Lebanon is helping Syrian parents cope with the hardships of affording the right healthcare for their children as their struggles continue‘ writes Nicholas Frakes

– Les fermes turques de noisettes exploiteraient les réfugiés syriens

7 – Deir Ezzor, @TheNewTurkey about the demonstrations in Deir Ezzor against the YPG, the reasons behind them and the ongoing ISIS insurgency in the region. Deir Ezzor would become an opposition stronghold again:

8 – Raqqa :

– In part 3, exploration of elements along which independent media organisations in Rojava construct their identity and the complex ways they position themselves in relation to the Kurdish issue, the Syrian conflict and the future of Rojava.

– In part 4 more attention to Raqqa which came under the control of Rojava after it was conquered from #ISIS in 2017. Details of  the embryonic efforts at re-establishing normality in the city after ISIS and the chaotic media environment emerging.

9 – Le régime et la société :

Horrific news from Sednaya prison where 95 captives were reportedly executed on Tuesday. Of those executed, 81 reportedly Syrians (incl 3 Christians, 1 Druze, 16 Syrian-Palestinians) & remainder Saudi, Jordanian, Lebanese, Egyptian. Sources say up to 1,100 could be killed over the coming days. It follows a Washington Post report that the regime is executing detainees en masse to clear its prisons

– Allawi al-Bashasha was held in cell, which is barely over a meter squared in size, with five other detainees.

10 – Reconciliation:  -In recent months, 4,303 IDPs have left #Rukban Camp. All had to transfer thru #Assad security facilities in #Homs, where the only way out was for a « sponsor » to pay a release fee. So « reconciliation » of victimized civilians = a money-making venture.

11 – Daech :  Explanations by @hxhassan
