-Empêcher un bain de sang aux conséquences incalculables à Idlib…

-« But Western interests in Syria did not cease to exist…If Syria’s trajectory continues along its present course, Americans are going to be hearing a lot more about it. And soon. » #Syria

– Appel à sauver les civils d’Idlib. @BelgiumUN

-We don’t need more calls for a ceasefire. We need enforcement. From the 2012 UN ceasefire on, Assad used every ceasefire as cover for more killing. Enforce UNSCR 2139. Deter. Retaliate. Ground Assad.

-Idlib’s doctors and medical staff are calling on @antonioguterres, the UN secretary general, to intervene personally. He should go there – see for himself the wreck of humanity, the ruin of a nation & the shame of a once-proud international system of laws.

-Les Casques blancs donnent tout. Donnez ce que vous pouvez pour soutenir leur mission vitale. #Syrie

4-Aide humanitaire:

-What is happening in Syria now is beyond words and understanding. Maternity and neonatal hospitals repeatedly targeted by bombs. Hundreds of thousands of people trapped in a war zone. This. must. stop. Silence is complicity.

Les distributions de nourriture du PAM dans le nord-ouest du pays : « Nous sommes profondément préoccupés par le sort de milliers de familles qui ont dû quitter leur maison par des températures hivernales glaciales en quête de sécurité dans des camps déjà surpeuplés ».

5-Education: –When discussing Moscow’s role in the Syrian conflict, much of the public and scholarly attention is squarely focused on the multiple dimensions of Russian “hard power” and exercise of brute force and rightfully so. But there are other tools also.


– Easing Syrian Refugees’ Plight in Lebanon. Most Syrian refugees in Lebanon have thought many times about going home but, in the end, deemed the risks too great.

-The Assad regime and its « devouring of corpses » policy, as one basis of its violence strategy against the Syrians.

13-US : -As they consider how many Syrian civilians they will slaughter and how many they will stampede in the direction of Turkey, should Messrs. Putin and Assad be spared all worry that Washington would come to the aid of Ankara with decisive military support?
