At least 50 people were killed and 100 others sustained injuries in twin bomb attacks targeting a residential neighborhood in Syria’s western city of Homs on Feb.21.

In an interview to the German Spiegel Online, the Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that Saudis would provide the so-called “moderate opposition” in Syria surface-to-air missiles. Al-Jubeir said that, ground-to-air missiles would “allow the moderate opposition to neutralize the helicopters and aircraft of the regime” – and thus “change the balance of power just like these missiles have changed the balance in Afghanistan.”

Hundreds of anarchists rioted in the French city of Nantes on Saturday, showering the city with smoke barrels and paint bombs in defiance of the state of emergency, which was extended by the French parliament for another three months. The state of emergency was invoked in France following terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and US State Secretary John Kerry in a telephone conversation continued to discuss the cessation of hostilities in Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement Sunday. We remember the ceasefire won’t extend on the terrorist groups such as ISIS, Al Nusra and others.

SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence is a public analytical umbrella project maintained by an independent team of experts from the four corners of the Earth focusing on international relations issues and crises and working through a number of media platforms with a special emphasis on social networks. We focus on analysis and intelligence of the ongoing crises and the biggest stories from around the world. The project provides military operations analysis, the military posture of major world powers, and other important data influencing the growth of tensions between countries and nations. We try to dig out the truth on issues which are barely covered by the states concerned and the mainstream media.

Our team is a living proof that experts and volunteers seeking to analyse objectively the ongoing events and equipped with the newest ideas and technologies, can do what only government- and corporate-linked organizations were able to do in the past.

The SouthFront Team believes that not only “professional journalists” and well-paid “experts”, but common people with an inquisitive mind, whom are highly interested in some field of public life, are able to produce balanced content in a modern information-oriented society.

Wikileaks proved that anyone concerned could make a great contribution to the triumph of the truth. SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence has shown that anyone can create and disseminate accurate and timely world-changing content.
