Turkey Sends More Troops Into North-East Syria

Turkey Troops Syria Erdogan

Washington’s escalatory steps force Ankara to react – with potentially positive consequences for the stalled Russian-Turkish Sochi agreement. 

The news came Wednesday noon and were as brief as precise: Turkish president Erdoğan announced, that he plans to launch a military operation in North-East Syria in the coming days. Two weeks earlier, the US army was reported by a CIA-backed publication to have set up military installations, three in Tal Abyad and two in Kobane. Preparations show, that Erdoğan plans to move quickly:

  • – in previous days, Turkish army has brought army personnel of the 3rd Brigade as well as supplies to the Syrian border.
  • – on Wednesday, Turkish troops took down walls of the city of Ras al-Ain
  • – at the same time, US forces set up an observation post near the town of...

The Hushed-Up Summit Success

Seven year-old Syria conflict gets a shiny new peace building format – while western propaganda media look the other way.

That’s certainly unprecedented but interesting and symptomatic: The biggest German daily „Süddeutsche“ squeezes a few lines on its front page governed by regional elections in  the state of Hesse and the umpteenth article on the truly terrible and deplorable synagogue killing spree in Pittsburgh, USA. Leading opinion shapers such as „Spiegel online“ and New York Times enumerate a few dry facts – and that’s it: Russian president Putin, his Turkish colleague Erdoğan, German chancellor Merkel and French president Macron met on a sunny Saturday afternoon in Istanbul overlooking the Bosporus...

Syria: Erdogan’s Tough Choices

Sochi agreement on the demilitarized Idlib belt offers risks – and opportunities.

The chain of events is now allowing prognoses: After the fall of IS/Daesh strongholds in Duma/Damascus and Daraa the Syrian government and its allies Russia and Iran took quite a while to pick up the thrust and start attacking the HTS stronghold Idlib and the sounding areas close to Aleppo in the east and Hama in the south, where many other militia groups from a variety of political backgrounds are operating. Already in these weeks it became clear, that partner Turkey slowed down the momentum of Syria’s liberation of terror militias...

Storm on Idlib halted

Syria with Russia and Iran give peace a chance, Turkey crammed in reinforcements and remains constructively engaged.

Russian diplomacy is – yet again – at its best: The final battle for peace and stability in Syria is overdue, but partnership with newcomer Turkey is being rated so high in Moscow, Tehran and Damascus, that it’s obviously worth further postponement of the next and probably last big battle. That is the basic outcome of Monday’s very important Russian-Turkish Sochi summit.

A quick look back: Though Turkey hat vented doubts against the wisdom of an all-out attack in Idlib province, even after the September 7 summit of the successful Middle East policy triangle of Russia, Turkey and Iran, had been viewed as go-ahead for the bombing campaign...

ZENSUR: Facebook sperrt DREI Seiten für je 30 Tage!

Sehr geehrter Herr Zuckerberg,

Ihre Beauftragten haben hier soeben die Mitwirkung an DREI Seiten eines international gefragten Politik-Analysten für 30 Tage blockiert:

Christoph Hörstel  –  Neue Mitte  –  Deutsch-Türkische Liga

Unzweifelhaft auch gemäß westlicher Berichterstattung in Großmedien ist:

– Am Wochenende hatte Israel mit den Weißhelmen eine Organisation unterstützt, die in Syrien direkt an der Seite von IS arbeitet – und deren Mitglieder gemeinsam mit IS den Damaskus-Vorort Duma in Richtung Idlib verlassen haben.

– Schon zuvor hatte Israel gemäß gleicher Quellen IS-Kämpfer in israelischen Krankenhäusern betreut.

– Israel hat wiederholt rechtswidrig Syrien mit Bomben und Raketen sowie Artillerie angegriffen.

– Israel terrorisiert laufend und unverhältnismäßig di...

Israel’s Support to IS

Final battle in Idlib: How far will Israel go?

It happened very quickly – and it happened at night during the last weekend: Israel suddenly opened its tightly sealed border with Syria and allowed 400-800 members of the “White Helmets” inside its territory, alongside their family members. They came with buses looking new and well-climatized and were kept inside a military camp directly behind the border. (“White Helmets” is a pure propaganda name for these supporters of terror and all sorts of crime, aspiring public relations gains by a designation proximity to the UN “Blue Helmets”. As if the questions involved were about colors.) Only very few media were allowed to cover the sensational story, which dwarfs every conspiracy theory.

But what do we call this story as compared t...

Syrien: nach Giftgasangriff Kriegshetze in allen Medien

Faszinierend: Gerade noch hatte US-Präsident Trump erklären lassen, er könne mit einer syrischen Assad-Regierung leben, da kommt, auch noch zeitgerecht zu einer internationalen Syrienkonferenz auf Einladung der EU-Außenpolitikerin Mogherini in Brüssel, dieser furchtbare Giftgasangriff von Idlib, der alle Markenzeichen einer false flag operation trägt. Und prompt sagt Trump, er habe seine Meinung zu Assad geändert, lässt drohen, dass die USA auch einseitige Schritte ergreifen könnten. Nach einem fatal ähnlichen Betrugsmanöver dieser Art hatte 2013 noch Russland eingegriffen und ein Abkommen unter Mitwirkung des Trump-Vorgängers Obama erreicht, das sämtliche Gaswaffen Syriens in Regierungshand außer Landes brachte.

Für die Propagandamedien des Medialpolitischen Kartells (MPK)...
