(QUETTA) JUST IN: A powerful bomb exploded in the parking area of a luxury hotel in the south-western Pakistani city capital of the province of Balochistan, late on Wednesday night (local time), killing at least four people and wounding at least 11 others, police said #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.22: The Chinese ambassador Nong Rong was staying at the hotel but wasn’t there when the bomb went off:

‘Pakistan bombing narrowly misses Chinese ambassador: Pakistan’s Interior Minister told local TV channel ARY News this was a big blast and the Chinese ambassador was also staying at this hotel, but he wasn’t there at the time; he was out at a function’

Posted 10h ago

Key points:

  • China’s ambassador to Pakistan had been staying at the hotel, but it’s not clear if he was the target
  • The Pakistan Taliban claimed responsibility hours afterward, but authorities are still investigating who is behind it
  • Balochistan is home to Gwadar Port, considered the flagship project of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor under the Belt and Road Initiative

Mr Rong had earlier in the day met provincial Chief Minister Jam Kamal in the city, according to a tweet from the provincial government spokesman.

Provincial Home Minister Ziaullah Lango told reporters he’d spoken with Mr Rong since the explosion.

“I just met him. He is in high spirits,” adding the envoy would complete his visit to Quetta on Thursday.

The province of Balochistan, of which Quetta is the capital, hosts the newly expanded Gwadar deepwater port that is key to a planned $65 billion investment in China’s Belt and Road Initiative economic corridor.

It was not clear whether the envoy or members of his delegation were a target of the attack, but Chinese nationals and their interests in the region have been attacked before by Taliban militants and nationalist insurgents.

Hours after the attack, the Pakistani Taliban in a statement claimed responsibility, saying it was a suicide attack.

The Pakistani Taliban is a separate insurgent group from the Afghan Taliban.

Authorities are investigating to determine whether it was a suicide attack.

It was unclear who was behind the attack since no-one immediately claimed responsibility.

South-western Balochistan province is the scene of a long-running insurgency by secessionist groups like the Balochistan Liberation Front and the Balochistan Liberation Army.

They have for decades staged attacks to press their demands for independence. The Pakistani Taliban and Islamic State group also have a presence there. 

Pakistan’s Interior Minister Mr Ahmed quickly blamed neighbouring India for the hotel bombing, although he provided no evidence to back up the allegation.

He told a Pakistani Geo news channel that Pakistan had only one enemy and it was neighbouring India, which he alleged was behind the bombing.

The hotel is frequented by foreigners as it is the city’s only luxury hotel and is considered safe.

(DAMASCUS) #Syria War Report: As legacy media again bleat the unsubstantiated “Syria is bombing hospitals” chorus of its war propaganda songbook, let’s pause to review the relatively unknown (but verifiable) reality of terrorists bombing hospitals in Syria #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.26: Following recent allegations of a hospital being targeted Al Atarib, western Aleppo, the US State Department repeated the claim, in spite of any clear evidence to back it up:

Western media quick to accuse Syria of ‘bombing hospitals’ – but when TERRORISTS really destroy Syrian hospitals, they are silent: after but instead, reports rely on highly questionable sources like the White Helmets, the USAID-funded Syrian American Medical Society and theusual unnamed “witnesses” and (clearly impartial!) “rebel sources,” as per a Reuters’ report on the recent claims:

Western media quick to accuse Syria of 'bombing hospitals' - but when TERRORISTS really destroy Syrian hospitals, they are silent

US sanctions are part of a multi-front war on Syria, and its long-suffering civilians are the main target

In fact, Reuters even acknowledges being unable to verify the authenticity of videos purporting to show “a ward damaged and civil defence rescuers carrying bloodstained patients outside.”

Let’s recall that Idlib is occupied by Al-Qaeda in Syria – a fact emphasized (as I wrote) by the US’ own former special envoy, Brett McGurk, who deemed the northwestern Syrian province the “largest Al-Qaeda safe-haven since 9/11.” ….Syrian Army says Israeli jets targeted Damascus countryside after Iran warned of repercussions

The presence of Al-Qaeda and affiliated terrorist groups makes it impossible for independent, neutral bodies to assess what is going on.

Facts matter, they say. But really, not so much when it comes to war propaganda.

In Sarmada, Idlib countryside, one of the targets was a Tahrir al-Sham (Al-Qaeda in Syria) fuel market, the smuggled fuel tankers obliterated.

A White Helmets video supposedly filmed in Al-Atarib alleges a hospital was bombed there. It indeed shows what looks like a medical facility covered in dust, and a lot of bulky men of fighting age. Glaringly absent are women or normal looking civilians.

Given the White Helmets’ penchant for working only in areas controlled by terrorist factions, working with them and even numbering among them, dabbling in organ trade, and having lied many times in the past, the video proves nothing.

There is, on the other hand, a precedent for “hospitals” or medical centres being weaponized by terrorists. And not just once or twice, but repeatedly in terrorist-occupied areas throughout Syria.

I’ve seen them in Aleppo and eastern Ghouta.

The Eye and Childrens’ Hospitals, a large complex in eastern Aleppo, was militarized and occupied by terrorists including the Tawhid Brigade, Al-Qaeda and even IS (Islamic State, formerly ISIS). Prisoners were held, and tortured, in nightmarish prisons and solitary confinement cells deep below. 

As journalist Vanessa Beeley noted, in eastern Ghouta, medical centres, “provided treatment almost exclusively to extremist armed factions.” They were also built underground, “linked by a vast maze of tunnels that snaked below most of the districts controlled by the armed groups, providing cover for the fighters during SAA [Syrian Arab Army] military campaigns.” (An aside, see one of these massive tunnels in Douma, at the location of the underground “hospital.”)

In Idlib, a “hospital” that the New York Times claimed Russian warplanes bombed in May 2019 was a cave used as a terrorist headquarters. Another fortified cave in Khan Sheikhoun was well-stocked with weapons, medical supplies and gas masks, and a prison with solitary confinement cells.

In areas liberated from terrorists, the Syrian Army routinely finds such caves, with tunnels connecting terrorist bases so they can avoid moving above ground.

In the past, Russia has provided satellite imagery when the question of a building allegedly being bombed arose. Until we have conclusive evidence either way, it is a question of he said, she said, although common sense (and the history of such lies) points to more media fabrications.Also on rt.com Israel violates international law anew, again bombing Syria…to further indifference of Western media

Hospitals bombed, media yawns

Since the media and pundits clearly care so much about Syrian hospitals being bombed, and even destroyed, it’s worth reviewing some of the major hospitals damaged or destroyed by terrorist factions.

However, unsurprisingly, not a lot of information is available. The following is a partial list, with me filling in details from attacked hospitals that I have gone to.

  • The September 2012 Free Syrian Army (FSA) bombing of and complete destruction of Al-Watani Hospital in Qusayr, Homs province. 
  • The September 2012 FSA bombing and complete destruction of two hospitals in Aleppo.
  • The December 2013 FSA & Al-Qaeda bombing and complete destruction of Aleppo’s Al-Kindi hospital, one of the largest and best cancer hospitals in the Middle East.
  • The April 2015 FSA bombing and siege of the National Hospital in Jisr al-Shughour, Idlib.
  • The May 2016 IS horrific multiple suicide bombings in Jableh (andalso in Tartous the same day), including inside Jableh’s National Hospital.
  • The May 2016 attack outside Aleppo’s Dabeet maternity hospital, a missile hit a car parked outside, which then exploded, killing three women at the hospital and injuring many more. 

I went to Aleppo in July 2016 and spoke with the director, who confirmed his hospital was gutted in the blast, and noted that a week later terrorists’ mortars hit the roof of the hospital, destroying the roof and injuring construction workers.

In May 2018, before Daraa was fully liberated, I went to areas which were under fire from terrorists (including the day I went), and took a perilous high speed ride in the taxi I had hired in Damascus to the state hospital, down a road exposed to terrorist sniping from less than 100 metres away.

The hospital was battered and partially destroyed from terrorists’ mortars, and mostly empty of patients. The director showed me destroyed wards (dialysis and laboratory), and off-limits areas due to high risk of sniping (gynecology, operations, blood bank, nursing school, children’s hospital).

When I returned to Daraa in September, after the region was liberated, the hospital was full of patients, since it was finally possible to access without risk.

Behind the hospital, roughly 50 metres away, I saw a building when I was told had been occupied by terrorists. Hence the extreme risk of being sniped while inside the hospital.

I never saw any Western outlet speak of this hospital, although it serviced civilians and was quite visibly partially destroyed.

In November 2016, I met Dr. Ibrahim Hadid, former Director of Kindi Hospital, who said that he wanted medical colleagues and institutions to exert some of the concern they have for “hospitals” allegedly bombed in terrorist areas.

They, and Western corporate media, have done the opposite, of course.

Another chemical song and dance routine?

Meanwhile, Russia is warning of a possible new staged chemical provocation by Tahrir al-Sham in Idlib.

The Russian Center for Reconciliation says, “militants are plotting to stage a fake chemical attack near the settlement of Qitian,” to again accuse the Syrian government of using chemicals on the people.

As anyone following the war on Syria knows, although the West desperately wants to prove Syria committed one or more chemical attacks, it has failed, to the point where even OPCW experts spoke out, contradicting the claims.

As I wrote last week, in spite of incessantly lying about Syria for ten years, Western (and Gulf) media, pundits and politicians steam ahead with more lies – recycled accusations and war propaganda.

So, it is likely the “hospitals bombed” theme will surge anew, and then the “chemical attacks” theme. And then maybe we’ll have another new Bana al-Abed to ask Biden to bomb Syria or “holocaust” Idlib…

On and on it goes, ceaseless war propaganda in its 10 years since the war in Syria began, and Western media & pundits are still eager to keep it going

The irony is of course, as I feel the need to make clear nearly every time I write, those script-readers claiming that Syria (and Russia) are bombing hospitals, or using chemicals, or whatever lie is next recycled, don’t actually care about the lives of Syrians. 

If they did, they would stop whitewashing terrorism in Syria, aid the country and its allies in liberating Idlib and the Aleppo countryside, stop pillaging its oil, leave Syria, and lift the sanctions.

(SYRIA) JUST IN: At least seven civilians, including a child, were killed Sunday in an attack by the Bashar Assad regime on a hospital in northwestern province of Idlib #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.21: The Assad regime once again has carried out a brutal attack on innocent civilians,” the Turkish Defense Ministry said in a written statement:

Assad regime attack on hospital kills 7 civilians in Syria’s Idlib: ‘Five innocent civilians, one of whom is a child, were killed by the regime’s artillery bombardment on a hospital in Idlib’s Atareb,” the ministry said in its initial reaction.

by DAILY SABAH:

Last Update: Mar 21, 2021 3:39 pm:

“The regime, which again carried out crimes against humanity, also injured 10 civilians,” the statement added.

Later, it was reported that seven civilians were killed and at least 14 medics were injured.

According to the White Helmets Syria civil defense group, the attack also caused serious infrastructural damage, putting the hospital out-of-service. Teams from the civil defense group took the injured to the nearest hospital.

The Idlib de-escalation zone was forged under an agreement between Turkey and Russia. The area has been the subject of multiple cease-fire agreements, which have been frequently violated by the Assad regime and its allies.

Most recently, a fragile truce was brokered between Moscow and Ankara in March 2020, in response to months of fighting by the Russia-backed regime. Almost a million people have fled the Assad regime’s offensive, yet the regime still frequently carries out attacks on civilians, hindering most from returning to their homes and forcing them to stay in makeshift camps.

Syria’s war has killed more than 387,000 people and displaced millions since beginning in 2011 with the regime’s brutal repression of anti-government protests.

First Turkish air strikes on Kurdish zone in Syria in 17 months: monitor

March 21, 2021 02:52

BEIRUT: The Turkish airforce conducted its first strikes in 17 months against a zone in north Syria held by Kurdish militia on Saturday night, a monitor said.
“A Turkish fighter jet has struck military positions of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Saida village in Ain Issa countryside… which caused loud explosions,” the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said.
This was the first aerial raid since “Operation Peace Spring,” it added — an October 2019 military campaign launched by Ankara and its Syrian allies against the SDF in northern Syria.
That operation, interrupted after two accords negotiated by Ankara with first Washington, and then Moscow, allowed Turkey to seize control of a “safe zone” inside Syria around 120 kilometers long and 32 kilometers deep.
The village of Ain Issa, however, remained in the hands of Kurdish forces.
The air strikes come the same day as “violent clashes” and “intensive rocket fire” on the frontlines of Ain Issa district between SDF forces and Turkish-backed factions, the SOHR said, adding there had been confirmed casualties.
“Clashes between the two sides have been going on for the last 24 hours… Turkish forces have had difficulty advancing since the SDF destroyed a Turkish tank,” the director of the SOHR, Rami Abdul Rahman, told AFP.
The Syrian Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units, which form a vital component of the SDF, are considered by Turkey to be a “terrorist offshoot” of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party.
But they have also been a key ally to the United States and others in the battle against the Daesh group in Syria.

It’s understood that the bomb went off in a parked vehicle near a used car dealership in the southern part of the Iraqi capital.

The terrorist group Islamic State claimed responsibility for the bombing through its news agency Amaq.

It’s the third explosion to hit Baghdad this week after a suicide bomber in a truck detonated a device in a northern Shiite neighbourhood of the city, reported Al Jazeera. At least nine people were killed and scores injured in that incident.

As part of the deadly spate of attacks on the city, explosives hidden inside a vehicle in an industrial part of southern Baghdad claimed the lives of four people on Tuesday, according to AFP.

Syria says U.S.-led jets hit its troops, dozens killed

U.S.-led coalition forces bombed Syrian troops near Deir al-Zor airport, the Syrian army said, allowing Islamic State fighters to briefly overrun their position and putting new strains on a ceasefire in effect elsewhere in the country.

The United States military said it had ceased air strikes against what it had believed to be Islamic State positions after Russia informed it that Syrian military personnel and vehicles may have been hit.

A Pakistani court on Friday freed on bail a man accused of plotting a 2008 militant assault on India’s financial capital that killed 166 people, Reuters said.

Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi “has been released and he is out of the jail now,” according to his lawyer, Malik Nasir Abbas.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had condemned the prospect of bail for Lakhvi, who was arrested in Pakistan in 2009.

The release comes months after India and Pakistan were engaged in their worst cross-border violence in more than a decade in the disputed Kashmir region.

#AceWorldNews – BOSTON:Jan.05: The people who lost loved ones or were injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings are clamouring for justice as jury selection gets under-way in one of the nation’s most closely watched federal death penalty cases in two decades AP reported.

Seating jurors in the case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was set to begin Monday under tight security at the federal courthouse in Boston and could take several weeks.

Jurors will be chosen from a pool of about 1,200.

They will decide whether Tsarnaev planned and carried out the twin bombings that killed three people and injured more than 260 near the finish line of the race on April 15, 2013.

If they find him guilty, they also will decide whether he should be put to death.

Survivors and first responders are among those expected to testify. 

Here are a list of judges and lawyers involved in the case:

The SOHR has condemned in the strongest terms the silence of the international community on these massacres committed by al-Assad forces in the right of the Syrian people, women and children.

Their spokesperson said: We consider The failure of the UN Security Council to refer the war crimes against the humanity in Syria, was a basic factor of turning Syrian into a terrorism land and a target for thousands of foreign fighters to Implement their own agenda in Syria, after killing hundreds of civilians in Syria under the name of their ” Shariaa “.

The failure of security council let dozens of thousands of Shia fighters who are allied to regime forces from Arabic and Asian countries, to travel to Syria and kills its people side by side with Bashar al-Assad, under the pretext of defending the Shia shrines.

We in SOHR make a promise to the people of Syria that we will continue to observe, document, and publish all the human rights violations, and crimes in the right of the Syrian people, in order to stop it and judge the perpetrators, and give it the hope that the Freedom, democracy, justice and equality are coming despite the darkness and injustice, who now lives in it.
