The “Anti-Israeli Resistance” was never born out of a just cause or a lack of justice. Its members will applaud Bashar al-Assad wherever he goes, starting with his sending volunteers to Russia and ending with his visit to Abu Dhabi.

Lebanon’s economic crisis and the pandemic deeply affected schooling of refugees and Lebanese children. The economic crisis has had a direct impact on education, with 45 to 55% of refugee children out of school, with an identified 30,000 students dropping out of school in the past academic year without re-registering for the 2020-2021 year.

Since the liberation of Raqqa in 2017, the city’s residents are still on a journey to search for the bodies of their relatives after they buried them under suspicious circumstances.They had to transport the remains in primitive ways from mass graves and parks out of the city. During the transfers, many of the bodies were lost and the remains were scattered, and they may have disappeared forever.
