This article is so sparse as to be practically non-existent. Can we have some in depth news and analysis?

Willing Conscience (The Truths

You can but not if you just rely on SF, occasionally they do republish articles from the Saker which are always in depth and honest too, but it’s only once in a blue moon you get a treat like that on SF.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

“On December 1, Russia reported that Idlib militants violated the ceasefire regime in Greater Idlib 33 times: 15 – in Idlib province, 3 – in Aleppo province, 11 – in Latakia province, 4 – in Hama province.”
……….

The Turkish army is shelling the villages of, Beluniye and Minakh,
Shelling and clashes around Maranaz this evening, reports that the SAA involved itself in some shelling are unconfirmed.
……….

That’s 11 days during November that the Turks and their proxies attacked SAA held territory resulting in many dozens of separate incidents, and although some of those attacks are attributed to responses to ALF attacks, none of them are justifiable and should all be considered ceasefire violations.
So according to the Russians only 3 incidents in Aleppo are considered to be ceasefire violations, which means all the other incidents I have listed must be considered not to be ceasefire violations, maybe I need to research to proper definition of the term ceasefire violation, because either I don’t understand it correctly or the Russians don’t.

The only good news for Aleppo is the Turks vacated another OB post at Al Jabal Qebt.

So, what do you want to say is that Syria is in a stalemate, no more offensive actions, but Wahhabi Turks can do whatever they want.
If it is ever right time to do something it is now, while America is in chaos.
