A French journalist who actually visited Syria and lived there for quite a while working for an NGO in different cities from Daraa in the south to Aleppo in the north describes his experience in a short informative post.

I just came back from Syria 3 months ago. I was working there with a French NGO as a communication manager. This allowed me to travel around many parts of the country, from Daraa to Aleppo.

Conditions of life:

They vary from place to place, so I will describe daily facts about some of the cities I have had the opportunity to stay in.

Legendary defender of Deir Ezzor, General Issam Zahreddine was martyred on 18 October.  He was born in Tarba, al Sweida governate, in 1961.  This intrepid and formidable hero spent the last five years defending 120,000 Syrians from ISIS, al Nusra, and variously named terrorist savages funded by the West and its Gulfies underling savages in Deir Ezzor.  The Martyr-General was killed by a land mine (another gift from NATO to the moderate terrorists?) while scouting for the tunnel in which terrorists were hiding.

Patriot martyr Issam Zahreddine was known for leading his troops in battle against the world’s human garbage dumped into the Syrian Arab Republic; unlike US generals, he did not… Continue reading: Legendary Defender of Deir Ezzor Issam Zahreddine Steps Down | Syria News
