The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has denounced the assassination of former Syrian legislator Midhat Saleh al-Saleh in the occupied Golan Heights, emphasizing that his death will not dissuade residents’ resistance and unequivocal rejection of the Israeli regime’s policies.
According to a Russian general, Israel has once again utilized civilian aircraft as a cover against Syrian air defense systems during its strikes on the Arab country. “On October 13, from 23:35 to 23:39, four Israeli Air Force F-16 tactical fighters entered Syrian airspace in the US-occupied al-Tanf zone in Homs Province and struck a phosphate ore processing plant in the Palmyra region,” Rear Admiral Vadim Kulit, deputy head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of Warring Parties in Syria, said at a press conference.
According to a bombshell report by The Grayzone, an investigative news website, the so-called self-styled open-source investigations organization Bellingcat, which has repeatedly accused the Syrian government of using chemical weapons against civilians, is financially dependent on anti-Damascus Western governments and heavily funded by the US and UK intelligence contractors who assist terrorist groups in Syria.
Syria and Russia have criticized some nations’ ongoing politicization of the Arab country’s chemical file, claiming that the Damascus administration, contrary to accusations made by Western governments and their allies, has kept its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention. Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Bassam Sabbagh, spoke at a UN Security Council meeting on Monday, rejecting a series of allegations made at the session by some participating countries, including the United States, France, and the United Kingdom, that the Damascus government was violating the Chemical Weapons Convention and failing to cooperate with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).
The Takfiri terrorist group Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, has allegedly transported a cargo of rockets with poisonous warheads to Syria’s provinces of Idlib and Hama in what is anticipated to be a scheme for another false-flag chemical operation to accuse Damascus’ government. The state-run SANA news agency claimed on Saturday, citing local sources in Idlib, that the terrorist group, along with international specialists, had supplied rockets with a payload of gas to frontline regions in the southern countryside of Idlib and Hama.
