This is the result of #Iran's role in #Syria.
These three beautiful children on the right are now dead after being bombed in #EastGhouta.
This is #EastGhouta, under siege for 5 years by #Assad in #Syria, held in power by #Iran's regime.
These innocent people are being ruthlessly bombed. Hundreds dead in the past few days alone.
Be the voice of #Ghouta.
Innocent children, like this little angel, are paying the price of #Iran's belligerence in #Syria to maintain #Assad in power for their own interests, and unfortunately, the world's silence in the face of such atrocities of defenseless civilians being viciously bombed.
More disturbing images of #Assad's crimes in #EastGhouta, enjoying endless support from #Iran's regime.
Be the voice of #EasternGhouta.
#EastGhouta becoming "Hell on Earth" is the result of #Iran's support for #Assad in #Syria.
At least 420 are dead & hundreds injured after 6 days of bombings.
Nearly 100 children have been killed.
Be the voice of #EasternGhouta.
#Syria - Over 400 civilians have been killed & more than 2,100 injured in the past six days of bombings in #EastGhouta, according to the @hrw.
Be the voice of #Eastern_Ghouta.
#BREAKING #HappeningNow
Feb 24 - #Eastern_Ghouta, #Syria
Reports indicate 21 civilians killed in today's bombing of #EastGhouta.
Rise against the silence. Be their voice.
Over 500 killed in #Syria's #Eastern_Ghouta in the past 7 days, reports indicate.
This is the result of #Iran propping the Assad regime.
The UN Security Council has adopted a 30-day ceasefire bill for #Syria following the horrific bombing campaign targeting #EastGhouta.
Over 500 civilians have died after seven days of bombings in #Syria's #EastGhouta, reports indicate. This includes at least 121 children and 30 people who were killed on Saturday alone.
Despite the UN Security Council adopting a 30-day ceasefire for #Syria, today's bombings by #Assad in #EastGhouta have left over 20 dead, reports indicate.
Don't be silent. #Iran & #Russia cannot be trusted. Action is needed.
Thanks to #Iran sending billions to Assad in #Syria, a 3-year-old children died Sunday & 13 others suffered breathing difficulties in #EasternGhouta following a suspected chemical attack.
#SaveSyria #SaveGhouta
Reports indicate #Iran-backed Assad forces are staging yet another ground assault on #Eastern_Ghouta.
107 civilians, including 34 children & 18 women, have been killed by regime forces 72 hours into the UNSC #Syia "ceasefire," reports add.
#SaveGhouta #SaveSyria
Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, meeting with a number of officials from Damascus, described #Assad as a "great fighter," adding "it is our duty to support #Syria."
Over 500,000 are dead & 11 million displaced due to this #Iran-backed war.
And thanks to #Obama.
I believe this is an important cause for #Syria, to help save the terrorised civilians of #EasternGhouta from the Assad regime & its allies, especially #Iran's regime.
Please help out by signing this petition & spread the word.
#SaveSyria #SaveGhouta
In a recent meeting with senior #Syria officials, #Iran Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei makes new threats:
"The day when you hold mass prayers in Quds (Jerusalem) will come soon."
More reason for #IranProtests & #RegimeChange.

This child was found by the UNHCR in the middle of the desert fleeing alone from #Syria to #Jordan. He has lost his entire family & the clothes of his mother & sister are in his bag...
This is thanks to #Obama that further enabled #Iran's meddling & #Russia's bombings in Syria...
We are in a world where condemnations no longer bear weight. Meaningful actions are necessary against #Iran, being #Assad's main sponsor in #Syria. Such measures will also send the necessary message to #Russia.
#SaveSyrianChildren #SaveGhouta #SaveSyria
Senator Lindsey Graham:
“…if we don't push #Iran out & come up with an agreement in Geneva that gives #Syria back to the Syrians. This war never ends... If you leave Syria in the hands of #Russia & the Iranians this war never ends.”
#EasternGhouta, #Syria
Reports indicate Assad's bombing campaign in the past 24 hours has left over 100 civilians dead. There is also news of a new chlorine attack in this region, leaving 32 injured, including 28 women & children.
US Ambassador to the UN @nikkihaley threatens military action against #Syria:
"When the international community consistently fails to act, there are times when states are compelled to take their own action."
Couldn't have come at a worse timing for #Iran‌.
#Syria's dictator Bashar #Assad claims to have liberated #EasternGhouta near Damascus & inspected the area himself.
This, however, is the statement issued by the main Russian military base on the Syrian coast announcing the Russian air force has established security.
Reports indicate Assad's forces dropped barrel bombs containing chemical agents, possibly even Sarin, on #Douma in #EasternGhouta, located east of Damascus in #Syria, leaving more than 150 people killed & 1,000 others injured.
#Iran's regime supports Assad
Video from #Douma in #EasternGhouta, near Damascus in #Syria, shows three small children suffering after what is being described as a deadly chemical attack by Assad's forces.
Support from #Iran & #Russia, with Obama turning his back, has led to this horrible situation.
Orient TV, associated to the #Syria'n opposition, reports the number of casualties in the latest #Douma chemical attack has climbed over 190 deaths.
#Iran & #Russia must be stopped from supporting Assad.
Video shows dozens of children, most likely killed, after last night's chemical attack in #Douma in #EastGhouta near Damascus, #Syria.
#Iran & #Russia supporting Assad in #DoumaMassacre.
Video shows the result of a monster (Assad) supported by #Iran & #Russia, gassing innocent civilians in #Douma of #EastGhouta near Damascus, #Syria with sarin gas.
For the love of God, until when is the world going to allow Assad, supported by #Iran & #Russia, to gas innocent civilians, this time in #Douma of #EastGhouta near Damascus, #Syria with sarin gas?
#Iran has published the names of four IRGC Quds Force officers killed in last night's attack in Homs, #Syria.

#BreakingNews - THREAD

This has his main supporters in Tehran, and Moscow, extremely concerned.
If you ask me "Gas Killing Animal" is the best title one can give the dictator of #Syria, Bashar Assad, and a spot on message to his masters in Tehran, #Iran.

I'm sorry, but this is what I call ridiculous... losing one's mind before the inevitable:

U.S. President Donald Trump has accepted the resignation of Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador.

My gut tells me an even bigger story will develop.

Rest assured #Iran's regime is terrified about who Trump/Pompeo will appoint as their new envoy.
Amb. Nikki Haley spoke six months ago with President Donald Trump about the subject of resigning.
Will be staying at this post until the end of the year.

Add this to the long list linking #Iran's regime with international terrorism.

This time, the al Qaeda-affiliated al Shabaab militant group of Somalia.

More reason why a firm policy is needed against Tehran.
"Criminal networks are using Iran as a transit point for illicit Somali charcoal exports that earn Islamist militants al Shabaab millions of dollars annually in tax, U.N. sanctions monitors said in a report seen by Reuters."
"... domestic revenue generation by al Qaeda-affiliated al Shabaab 'is more geographically diversified and systematic' than that of Somalia’s federal government."

Reports indicate atmosphere in #Iran's parliament (the Majlis) is very tense as members review the anti-money laundering Financial Action Task Force (FATF) signing bill.
Sources say "hardliners" are voicing threats about the signing of this bill.

Short Thread:

#Iran's #FakeNews machine at work:

"It did not say where Zahedifar was arrested. In a video carried by state broadcaster IRIB, a blindfolded man who identified himself as Zahedifar denied he had fled Iran."
Here's the video.

What a coincidence (!), all of this developing just "a week after Tehran sentenced three people to death in a drive against economic crimes."
