Local and Political News:

Dozens protested in al-Bab and Azaz, Aleppo, Northern Syria, against Turkey for preventing the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) of Douma from entering al-Bab.

The Turkish Army prevented the convoy of IDPs from entering, claiming the lack of space to accommodate all of them.

The protesters in Azaz raised signs saying “ Syria is not divided yet and every inch of it, is the property of the Syrians." "The guarantor states are tasked with monitoring the fighting and not setting up barriers to the entry of displaced people." The people of Ghouta, are our people, you can not stop them from entering into their families’ region"

In Southern Syria, Russia set Thursday as the date of sending their military police to Douma (14 kilometers east of Damascus).

Russian media quoted statements of the head of the Operational Department at the Russian General Staff, Victor Boznekhef, saying that the goal of sending the military police is to “ensure security, to maintain law and order and to provide help for the residents of Douma.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 500 people from Douma, Eastern Ghouta, went to medical facilities and they were diagnosed with “signs and symptoms of poisonous chemicals.”

The Deputy Director of Emergency Response of WHO, Peter Salama, condemned the chemical attack on Douma, Eastern Ghouta, in a statement from Geneva. He called upon reaching the area “immediately without any impediment, to evaluate the medical situation and to provide the needed health requirements.”

In Daraa, Southern Syria, an explosion on the main road of the city killed a civilian, who was passing the street.

The head of al Hirak hospital, Ahmad al Hariri, said that an explosive device on the road between the villages of al Rakhm and al Kark, Eastern Daraa, killed a civilian.

In Central Syria, suspected government airstrikes killed and injured seven civilians in the Northwestern Suburbs of Hama.

Local activists reported that suspected government warplanes launched missiles on the village of Qastoun (70 kilometers northwest of Hama). The rockets killed four civilians, including a woman, and injured three others, who were transferred to nearby medical centers.

In Northeastern Syria, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) announced that 12 of their fighters were killed during clashes with the Free Syrian Army and the Turkish Forces of the Olive Branch operation in Afrin, 43 kilometers north of Aleppo, Northern Syria.

The YPG media office issued a statement reporting the deaths records. The records included female fighters from the Women Protection Units. The fighters all come from Afrin, and they killed there a month ago.

Political and International News:

The U.S. President, Donald Trump warned Russia to be ready because the U.S. will use new and smart missiles as a response to the chemical massacre in Douma, Eastern Ghouta. The warning took place after Russian statements saying that they will shoot down every rocket fired at Syria.

Alexander Zasypkin, the Russian Ambassador to Lebanon, said that his country will shoot down any U.S. missiles fired at Syria and will target the launching sites. This coincides with media anticipating for an American attack against the Syrian government.

The Russian Ambassador said in an interview with al Manar Channel of the Hezbollah militia that he based his information on the statements of the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Russian Chief of Staff.

Donald Trump considered that the relations between Russia and the U.S. have never been worse, including the cold war. Trump also called to stop the arming race between the two countries.

Trump tweeted on his Twitter account that the relations with Russia have never been worse, even worse than the tension of the cold war.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned that the smart missiles Trump have threatened to launch may destroy all the evidence of chemical weapons use.

The U.S. Stock market indices have declined notably after Trump’s threats of attacking the Syrian government.

Associated Press reported that the Dow Jones Industrial index fell by seven per 1,000 which is equivalent to 158 points, to reach 24247 points. The NASDAQ index dropped by 18 points as well (three per 1,000). The S&P 500 index fell by 11 points ( five per 1,000).

International airlines changed their air routes over Syria and areas close to their airspace, after calls for caution over possible military strikes in the next 72 hours, coinciding with the escalation of the U.S. threats.

The Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mevlut Cavusoglu, urged to overthrow Bashar al Assad “rapidly.”

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish President, proclaimed neutralizing 4108 YPG fighters in the Olive Branch operation in Afrin, Northern Aleppo, Northern Syria.
