Up to now, the situation in Syria seems to be like a careful observation of the Ukrainian crisis. It is exactly the same to the rest of the countries that have direct ties, whether politically, economically, or militarily with any of the involved parties. According to the given facts, many countries will be badly affected in one way or another if the rate of imposing sanctions between Moscow and the West escalates.
The situation in Syria indicates that the USA by its tools will take a kind of action that would put pressure on Russia. On the one hand, Israel escalates the bombing operations on locations it claims to be Iranian military posts in Syria, the last of which was this morning resulting in civilian victims in the south of Damascus. This attack was preceded by an attack carried out by ISIS on positions for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Palmyra in the countryside of Homs resulting in 13 martyrs and 18 injuries by targeting an overnight stay bus.
The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounced the Israeli attacks pointing out that it had happened coincidentally to ISIS attack which reflects the extent of coordination between these two attacks.
These attacks were also preceded by a post on Twitter for the US embassy in Damascus denoting that March would be the month of settling accounts telling the Syrians to share that hashtag.
Moreover, that came in coincidence to moving members of ISIS organization and other groups trained by the USA from “Al-Tanf” base to Idlib and to Ukraine. There are pieces of information saying that 242 ISIS militants have arrived in Ukraine amid news about the Turkish-backed factions establishing centers to register names of militants in Syria’s north to fight the Russian Army.
It seems that the situation is heading towards more escalation according to the given facts; the increasing activity of ISIS organization in the Syrian desert, Al-Badieh, following the incidents of Gwairan prison, which is under the US-backed SDF control, and the increase of the number of Israeli aggressions at the same time.
