Former US Diplomat Jim Jatras joins In Question to share his thoughts on the news as well as recent reports which allege the US and Israel sent a secret delegation to Ukraine recently, to consult the Ukrainian military on how to best evade the Russian S-300 missile defense system, which was delivered to Syria last month.

"... to consult the Ukrainian military on how to best evade the Russian S-300 missile defense system"

That consultation went wrong.

Saudi stops funding terror in Syria as the Arab League prepares to resume ties with Damascus: the time is not yet ripe for retaking Idlib

Quote:Meanwhile, Syria’s allies prepared three lines of defence: the first facing Tal el-Eiss, the second at “the apartment 3000” and the third at the entrance of the city of Aleppo. They had received solid intelligence that al-Qaeda and other jihadists had gathered around 10,000 men and were preparing to launch an attack against Aleppo. The Russian-Turkish deal stopped the imminent attack.

Quote:Daesh Attacks Refugee Camp in Syria, Take Hundreds Hostage - Russian Military

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Militants from Daesh* have attacked a refugee camp in Syria's town of Al-Bahra and captured 130 families totaling 700 people, Lt. Gen. Vladimir Savchenko, head of the Russian Center for Syrian reconciliation, said Monday.

"Taking advantage of complete impunity, Daesh militants attacked a refugee camp in the Al-Bahra area on October 13, capturing 130 families of about 700 people, and transporting them to Hajin," Savchenko said at a news briefing.

The general stressed that the abducted civilians were de-facto taken hostage and could be used by terrorists as a “human shield” to protect the militants from the possible attack by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) advancing towards the last Daesh-occupied areas on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

Where there is imbalance I am the counterweight. Beware, for if you are a cause of imbalance you may not enjoy my presence.
