Assad visits embattled Idlib province

Defeating jihadists in Idlib is the key to ending Syria’s eight-year-old civil war, President Bashar Assad said Tuesday on his first visit since 2011 to the northwestern region, the last rebel bastion to hold out against government forces. “The battle of Idlib is the basis for resolving chaos and terrorism in all other areas of Syria,” he told troops in the front-line town of Al-Hbeit. Syrian troops meanwhile continued to deploy in the Kurdish areas of the region to contain a Turkish invasion.

    What about the invasion of the West Bank?
    Including the Old City, it was invaded and later annexed by Jordan.
    During Jordanian rule, 34 out of the Old City’s 35 synagogues were dynamited.
    38,000 Jewish graves in the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives were destroyed.
    Arab Legions proceeded to expulsion of the Jewish residents of the Old City and in the vacated Jewish Quarter installed the people they call themselves today “Palestinians”.
    Draconian restrictions, also made many Christians leave West Bank, and in the vacated homes Jordanians installed the people they call themselves today “Palestinians”.

    Fake “Palestinians” have no right to keep occupying the West Bank!
