Intense Missile Attacks on Northern Syria

 More missiles have rained down on northern Syria intensifying the attacks on important buildings for civilians. At least 10 hospitals have been bombed and 2 schools destroyed in the past 5 days alone (Sept 21 -7).  More destruction atop devastation. With no major news coverage of the brutal attacks on the White Helmet volunteers and the civilians. (Source: OGN Live updates)


Bloodshed and wreckage among the latest Russian missile strikes on northern Syria, particularly Idlib.

One bone chilling comment from a Syrian resident, “The Russians are emboldened by the fact that the world did nothing to save the Rohingya.” How precise is this statement! When the enemy savagely attacks the helpless without any fear from repercussion, of course its appetite increases becoming more bloodthirsty and daring. We saw complete inaction from the Muslim neighboring countries to ferociously end the genocide and massacre of the Myanmar Muslims in the Arakan, sending a loud and clear message to the international community…the price of Muslim blood is worthless. However the pounding of missiles and bombs on Syria did not stop since the start of the Ash-Sham revolution almost seven years ago. The Assad regime and Russia uses a scorched earth policy to deeply pierce the remaining population. Hundreds of accounts of how parents weep in agony over their children and whatever may remain of their limbs. Infrastructure is no longer a feature in Syria from the warfare. Targets are specific and random, from maternal hospitals to schools to bakeries to fuel stations to apartment buildings, none were left unscathed.

The Muslims call out to the people of power day and night, weep in agony for the commanders of the powerful Muslim armies to do right by their duty to the Ummah in need. Horribly falling upon deaf ears. Utter disgrace will their badge in this world and the Day of Account.  Yet our brothers and sisters in Syria have shown the most honorable resoluteness in the face of the pelting of iron and fire.  A picture of a little girl found alive underneath rubble with a smile of joy that she survived the bombing. Surely, they are promised relief as they have only tawakul on Allah Alone.

وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ وَمَن يَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّـهِ فَهُوَ حَسْبُهُ إِنَّ اللَّـهَ بَالِغُ أَمْرِهِ قَدْ جَعَلَ اللَّـهُ لِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدْرًا

“And will provide for him from where he does not expect. And whoever relies upon Allah – then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent.”

(at-Talaaq: 65)

Indeed it is not too late for repentance and courage for the Muslim armies to step forward with their elite technology and top brass skills to save whoever is left in Syria from the Hell on Earth and then moving east and west of Syria to rescue the remaining Ummah in need.
