  • “We have proof that last week, now 10 days ago, that chemical weapons were used, at least with chlorine, and that they were used by the regime of (President) Bashar al-Assad. (…) Our teams have been working on this all week and we will need to take decisions in due course, when we judge it most useful and effective.”

  • However, it should be stressed that these are unofficial reports. The official press release by the Elysée makes no mention of the sending of ground forces. Le Parisien writes that:

    “In the aftermath of these announcements, Paris on Friday denied military reinforcements” and assures that there will be no new ground operation in Northern Syria, outside of the international anti-Daesh coalition.”

  • The people of Syria have a huge task ahead, and they may need our help in achieving it. However, it is a task that has been completed before, and can be completed again. The worst thing for Europe to do is take away the young and energetic, the bright and vibrant, the intellectuals and determined; for it is those people that Syria requires in this hour of need.

  • Johnson describes the problems: two central banks, two rival parliaments, three prime ministers and up to four governments. But what makes the situation in Libya worse from that in Belgium, is the fact that there are three guns for every human being, “but no single source of law or authority, let alone power.”

There are hardly any NGO’s in this Kurdish SDF-area in Syria. They are totally blocked by Turkey and by Iraqi Kurds. The borders are closed off. Nothing will enter via Turkey due to the wall, nothing via Erbil due to the closed border and nothing via the Syrian governmental zone, due to the war. It’s bizarre.”

  • “I can almost cry. I’ve just met a frightened 8-year-old Yazidi girl who has been abused as a slave by foreign ISIS-fighters. She has been liberated by Kurdish fighters in Raqqa, just three days ago. The girl was so frightened (…) it’s so horrible. Her brother still works as an ISIS-slave in Raqqa. Her mother was also sold as a slave. Her father is in Iraq. The foreign fighters are animals, so many of them here in Syria have slaves. It is completely institutionalised. Children and women are sold via WhatsApp.”
