BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels disrupted the gas flow to millions of civilians in Damascus on Thursday in protest of the Syrian government’s demand that they surrender the Wadi Barada area.

Based on footage posted by rebel activists, the militants closed the gas pipelines that flow through the eastern Qalamoun town of Jayroud in rural Damascus.

The Syrian government recently demanded that the jihadist rebels surrender the Wadi Barada area in western Damascus after they poisoned the water supply to millions of people in the Syrian capital.

Without much military leverage, the jihadist rebels have turned to punishing the people living in government-held areas as a form of retribution against the government for their military success in the East Ghouta and Aleppo.

Civilians in Damascus are currently without fuel and water, making the humanitarian situation dire in this historical city that is now home to an estimated 5 million people.

Western leaders show their hypocrisy for silence over the suffering of civilians who have no heating this winter. This affects ordinary people. If the roles were reversed and rebels were being denied, we would hear howls of protest, see lots of heart tugging videos of little six year old girls shivering in the cold.

Millions of Syrians are struggling with cold & starvation. The US air coalition did nothing to prevent ISIS attacks towards Palmyra. Meanwhile the stalled attack on Mosul is just a staged theatrical event for main stream media

I t is still possible that western prost1tute media will show lots of heart tugging videos of little six year old girls shivering in the cold and blame Assad for it.

Undoubtedly. Yesterday Al Jazeera News falsely alleged that the Syrian Army deliberately destroyed the water plant for Aleppo to cause suffering. Everything they report is twisted 180 degrees. The people writing these scripts are seriously psychotic.

Its more than likely that Western military advisers have instructed the terrorists to do this. Destruction of civilian infrastructure is the Western way of war.

Yes that is what the underground bunker in Aleppo was there for. NATO was providing satellite & signals intelligence to Rebels in real time. US Special forces embedded with both ISIS and other rebel groups are feeding all sorts of intelligence. This is a proxy war with Wahibbist mercenaries directed from Washington & Whitehall

Look out… genius is back. It was US & Israeli special forces that trained Saddam’s Fedayeen in Turkish training camps into the fighters who later became ISIS. It was France USA & Britain who seduced Qatar & Saudi Arabia with the prospect of a gas pipeline across Syria to Europe to exclude Russia from selling gas to Europe. It was USA who airdropped TOW missiles to rebel groups inside Syria. It was the British SAS who supplied arms to rebel groups in southern Syria across the border from Jordan. It was the CIA who organized bulk purchase of former Soviet… Read more »

Yep!!! As I posted, previously: […] The Saudi kingdom, just like the Zionist state (among others), is nothing but an Anglo/Euro-Zionist/post-Eisenhower (the last true American president) US colony. And any ACTION they take is at the behest of their colonial masters. Only the bought and paid (sellouts, as you have observed) or the ignorant will either deny or dispute this. Anyone whose capacity for analysis is so limited as to suffer the “Wizard Of Oz” dilemma -paying no attention to the man behind the curtain- really shouldn’t pretend to accomplish analytical depth, or to presume to accuse others of lacking… Read more »

You seem not to have understood the double agenda they have in the GCC… The 3 oil crisis PROVE it! Their history is tremendous of such conspiracies. Bakshish ain’t a western word. They don’t need the west for plotting global jihad!

The tragedy of Syria is that many families inside Government controlled areas still have family trapped inside rebel held areas and ordinary people dare not speak out because they know their relatives will suffer retribution from terrorists.

An interesting fact about Syria is that a whole nation is being held hostage by a mere 63,000 rebel terrorists (official estimates).

Now 63,000 people with a few guns are not going to prevail against the might of the Syrian army & air force for 5 years without massive intervention & help from outside forces. That is basic reality.

63k are the groups that signed the Turkey-Iran-Russia protocol.
Consider there are more likely around 100-130k, including Daesh
