The Syrian Ministry of Health stated that the total number of COVID 19 positive cases discovered in the country reached 1255 as on 10 August 2020, with an addition of 67 new cases in the past 24 hours.
The number of deaths so far in the country of patients who tested positive with COVID 19 reached 52 so far.
Syria is facing unimaginable difficulties in catering to its once self-sufficient and highly advanced healthcare system due to the US-led War of Terror waged against the country for 9.5 years now and the increasing US and EU sanctions added to the already strained economy due to the preventive measures carried out by the government in attempts to contain the pandemic – or call it seasonal flu, if you feel the whole thing is a hoax.
The killing is chasing the Syrians in the Levant, their enemies are hell-bent to punish them for not submitting to the United States’ hegemony and standing up to live free and determine their own future by themselves. The latest horrific explosion in Beirut’s Port took the lives of forty-three Syrians, so far, as if they were on a hit list.
43 were Syrians out of the current toll that stands at 158, there are about 20 or so casualties among the French, maybe more, there are Palestinians, even the wife of the Dutch ambassador succumbed to her wounds a day after the explosion, which means the Syrian victims were either the majority of the total or second.
The Syrian embassy in Lebanon issued a list containing the names of the victims reported to it and confirmed dead, some of them are women and some are children.
I call on the Syrian government to dispatch a team of investigators to observe the investigations carried out by the Lebanese authorities and conduct their own, with many Lebanese on the Saudi/ Qatari payroll with their loyalty to the USA, Turkey, and Israel, it’s impossible for us to trust their investigations to be pure professional; after all, they did accept French and other international investigators.
After 9 years of suspension, the first train arrives in Damascus coming from Tartous Port on the Syrian coast and carrying 1,000 tonnes of grains.
The Syrian railways were directly ‘democratized’ by the ‘freedom fighters’ and ‘peaceful protesters’ who derailed trains, stole carriages and took it to Erdogan, blew up warehouses and workers kidnapped, tortured, and many killed for being workers of the public sector which means they were against the ‘peaceful protesters’ the USA sponsored in Syria.
Due to the regime of Donald Trump being able to threaten and hold back western and other countries with his sanctions stick, Syrian engineers and workers had to build the railways from the ground up without any foreign aid or imported material.
Madman and absolute dictator Recep Tayybe Erdogan, the fake caliph wannabe, the enemy of Islam, and the war criminal has a lot to hide, that’s why he seized control of over 90% of Turkish mainstream media: audio, visual, and written, imprisoned dozens of journalists, hundreds of former officials, thousands of opposition members and tens of thousands of the public so far. Turkey is the largest prison in the world for journalists.
Syria News is no exception. Yes, we are tough in criticizing Erdogan on our site, but isn’t this exactly what he’s doing against my government and my people? Didn’t he bring tens of thousands of terrorists from all sides of the planet to help us ‘get our freedoms’?
Islam’s Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) described the hypocrite in one of his hadith – sayings: “Four characteristics constitute anyone who possesses them a sheer hypocrite (munafiq), and anyone who possesses one of them possesses a characteristic of hypocrisy till he abandons it:
When he talks he lies,
When he makes a promise he violates it,
When he makes a covenant he acts treacherously, and
When he quarrels, he deviates from the Truth.”
Now look at each one of those and you’ll find Erdogan does it repeatedly, Erdogan calls it smartness and political pragmatism to be a hypocrite, Muslims call that hypocrisy based on the definition given by their prophet.
In 2003 I was notified by friends in Turkey that they can’t access my site, I looked up the issue with the host company and my IT friends who were helping me that time and they confirmed there’s no issue with the site, it’s rather an issue in Turkey itself. They advised to try a VPN and that worked, and a couple of other tests proved that Syria News is blocked in Turkey.
That was followed later by an email I received from Automattic, the company that runs the most popular WordPress blogging platform, advising that they’re obliged to block my WordPress blog in Turkey, they did confirm it’s against their policy and against their belief, but they added that they were threatened by Erdogan to block their entire platform if they don’t block my blog, and a couple of others, from access in Turkey.
Yesterday, I was notified by some friends that the blocking is still in effect and they can’t access the site, that was followed by a post on Reddit by some Turks saying the same.
The increase of the COVID 19 cases in Syria is relatively small compared with all the neighboring countries, the figures could be much more as the Syrian Ministry of Health is unable to carry out wide scale testing campaigns due to lack of testing devices and other equipment because of the US and EU sanctions.
In the past 24 hours, twenty-one new cases were discovered and one case died, as per the ministry of health.
The country is fighting al Qaeda terrorists and their sponsors in NATO on behalf of the whole humanity, the Syrian people are also suffering from the western imposed sanctions which the Trump regime says it’s to force them to accept the US hegemony over Syria, like all other countries where the USA controls in western Europe, in the region, and beyond.
Two criminals were arrested in Lebanon were forging COVID 19 PCR test results for persons traveling to Syria and did not undergo the test.
The Lebanese law enforcement was tipped about unknown individuals forging the documents in exchange for money and set up a search and arrest operation that led to the criminals in a suburb of the Lebanese capital Beirut.
Over a dozen fake reports and a cellphone with up to 100 images of similar reports were found with the criminals at the time of the arrest.
As if Syria needs any further burden in addition to fighting the world’s filthiest terrorist groups which are sponsored by the world’s most evil regimes in NATO member states, the Gulfies, and Israel, in addition to the US and EU illegal unilateral draconian sanctions preventing the country from buying the essentials it needs for the 18 million human beings living in the government-controlled provinces.
