Dessin de Marc Nelson
Civils en fuite dans le Grand Idleb, Décembre 2019


1– Rapports et Etudes:

-« I realized that my brother was shot in the head and neck. I witnessed how his soul left his body » – Boy, al Houla, witness to the execution of his entire family, 2012.  Syrian conflict has ‘erased’ children’s dreams: new UN report

– Syrie : des enfants de 12 ans torturés et des filles de 9 ans victimes de viol, selon des enquêteurs onusiens

-Local Cross-line Coordination in Syria Detailed studies of cross-boundary trade in Homs, Daraa, Manbij & northern Hama



#Syrie : le cessez-le-feu à Idlib a échoué car des civils sont tués quotidiennement, selon l’ONU$

#Syrie : un déluge de feu continue de s’abattre sur #Idleb

-As bombing escalated, Syrian photojournalist Muhummad Al Hosse travelled through Idlib, documenting the impact on civilians’ access to healthcare. Story by @MEdwardsJO « Al Hosse’s photographs, taken at the height of recent bombing and mass displacement, offer a rare intimate glimpse at the struggle Syrian civilians face in finding basic care in the midst of a long war. »

-Assad said he wants a “more homogeneous society“. That always meant bombing ‘undesirable’ men, women & children out of their homes and forcing them into a life of exile.

-Syrian government defies ceasefire with ground offensive on Idlib…

-Syria’s war: More than 20 killed in air raids on rebel-held Idlib

3-Solidarité avec Idlib :

4-Aide humanitaire:

-Int’l response to Syrian humanitarian disaster meets only 5% of needed aid, NGO says – Daily Sabah

-Lack of humanitarian aid to Idlib made worse by diplomatic wrangling. The situation is “basically just another failure of the international community.”

“Combine [it] with the cutting of the already extremely small amount of aid entering Syria and the blocking of aid by Jordan the flow of [internally displaced persons and] refugees from Syria into Turkey, Jordan and other countries; and the devaluation of the currency; plus all sorts of other things — like quickly collapsing environment of Syria. There is a huge collapse of something coming in the near future,”

 – UN cash assistance to Syrian refugees in Lebanon is fixed at $27/month. As dollars vanish, UN gives LBP sum based on official rate. So $27=40,000 LBP. On black market, 40,000 LBP is now worth about $16. A deepening crisis

6- Le régime et la société :

#Assad‘s mass slaughter in #Idlib is directed against all forms of life. Seems he aims at ruling over ruins and stones because these cannot oppose his tyranny. What  Assad calls a victory – a completely destroyed town from which everyone escaped in order to avoid being « liberated » by the Assad regime.

Rankos Qalamoun  ‘The Regime forces raided the house & started shooting directly, killing all those inside…the majority of those young people were not wanted by the #Syrian regime forces’ To arrest ONE young man #Assad kills Nine ALL under 20 yrs

-Depuis le début du mois de janvier, c’est une vraie raffle qui a eu lieu à Yalda, sud de Damas, où se trouve plus de 4000 familles de réfugiés palestiniens déplacées… #Syrian #Syria

Damascus : #Assad‘s forces have arrested more than forty « reconciled » men at mobile checkpoints in Douma and Mesraba in the last 72 hours. They were sent to the security branch where some will be forcibly recruited and others are destined to be punished.

-Second dreadful #massacre of shepherds in Deir Ezzor desert. Unsure whether it was pro AssadRegime militia or ISIS but in both cases it was death by firing squad. #Syria



– U.K. Treasury today designated the entire #Hezbollah org. as a terrorist group under its Terrorism & Terrorist Financing rules, & its assets will be frozen. Last year, U.K. listed #Hezbollah in its entirety as a proscribed terrorist org. #Iran

– Iran’s post-Soleimani strategy in #Syria


-One of the lesser known aspects of the Syrian war is the use of young Afghans by Iranian militias fighting for Assad. @alibomaye reports from Kabul.


8- Russie:

-These airstrikes reflect Putin’s basic desire to help Assad crush the rebel remnants against his rule. Putin has zero interest in mitigating civilian suffering.

-General Sergey Chvarkov stole millions of dollars.


9-Turquie :

-Libye 2 000 dollars par mois et nationalité turque pour les mercenaires #syrie ns[twitter]-… via @franceinfo

– ‘The Assad regime is determined to capture the #Idlib province, Ali Mamlouk told his Turkish counterpart, an event that will have huge consequences for Ankara and millions of Syrians‘

« At the moment, Turkey has allegedly propped up weapon supplies to armed rebels in Idlib but these supplies won’t change much, except for increasing the cost for the regime and slowing down the assault. Therefore, a new approach for Idlib is needed. »

Such conditions mean that Idlib is increasingly a national security issue for Turkey, which could have dire consequences for relations between Ankara and Moscow if Russia fails to respect its ally’s concerns.

« Turkey and Russia have learned to continue their relationship despite disagreements, but at a certain point when the refugee flow towards Turkey might look imminent, Turkish-Russian relations might reach a point similar to the downing of the Russian jet by Turkey in 2015, »



– Syrian base said used by Iranian militias targeted in airstrike



– ISIS carried out ten attacks in Syria since start of 2020

#Caesar demonstrated extraordinary courage by patiently collecting evidence of #Assad’s war crimes. He saw friends and neighbors among the dead, but could say nothing. Had his superiors discovered his plans, his corpse would have been next in a photograph:
