The Syrian regime storms Saraqib and withdraws after a counter-attack.


The last, the fourth conviction of this kind, took place last July 22, in Hamburg: Omaima A., affiliated with Daesh and repatriated, had four years for aiding and abetting crimes against humanity on two Yazidi women. A court already sentenced her and her husband in October 2020. While her friend Sarah O., the wife of another jihadist, had already ended up in the dock. The husband “bought” those two women in Raqqa, in Syria.

The story of a 5-year-old girl left to die of thirst, chained to a window under the sun by Jennifer W. and her husband Taha A.J., is also in April last year in Falluja, Iraq, bought at the slave market with her mother. Both are still on trial. Germany is the country that first responded to the request for justice that the Yazidi minority has been demanding since August 3, 2014, the day of the attack by Islamist militiamen on Sinjar, the massacre of 5,000 men unbelievers, and the kidnapping of 6,700 women and children.

On the seventh anniversary of what the United Nations officially refers to as “genocide,” the only thing that matters is to hold the perpetrators of murders, kidnappings, rape, torture, and enslavement to their responsibilities. About 3,000 people are still missing. But death, despite the mass graves stilly added, “The clashes resulted in the deaths of at least 19 members of the regime forces and 7 armed factions.”

The Syrian regime stormed on Wednesday evening, Saraqeb, which is strategically located, as it is the meeting point between two international routes linking several Syrian governorates, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The Syrian regime television said in an urgent tape that the army units are now "burning fire at the meeting point" of the two roads.
The director of the observatory, Rami Abdel Rahman, told "Agence France Presse" that "the regime forces entered the city and began combing its neighborhoods after the withdrawal of hundreds of fighters for the Headquarters for the Liberation of Al-Sham (formerly the" Al-Nusra Front ") and allied factions to the village north of it.
The withdrawal of the opposition factions' fighters came after the regime forces cordoned off the city, which had emptied its residents in recent weeks, from three sides, according to the Syrian regime's media.
After the regime stormed Saraqib, Turkey bombed the sites of the Syrian regime east of Saraqib to prevent its progress. The Kurdish channel "Ronahi" confirmed on Twitter that "the Turkish army bombarded with heavy artillery several villages in the countryside of Zarkan and Tal Tamr in Hasaka."
The Syrian Observatory also confirmed that "armed factions" entered the city of Saraqib after storming it by the regime "amid violent clashes in the neighborhoods of the western and southeastern city."
As it entered Saraqeb, the regime forces were almost in control of the entire international road known as “Umm Fife,” linking Aleppo Governorate to the north, and the capital to the south.
Saraqib’s importance lies in the fact that it forms the meeting point between this road and another road known as “Um Fur”, which links the coastal province of Lattakia to Idlib.
