Syria's new emerging wars

ABU DHABI (SYNDICATION BUREAU) - The idea that the Syrian conflict was "winding down" was so widely believed that even sober-thinking analysts found it difficult to challenge. But what a difference a week can make. The war, instead, has reached a new peak. Within the space of a mere few days, Syrian rebels shot down a Russian jet, Kurdish fighters downed a Turkish helicopter and pro-government groups attacked United States-backed forces. Meanwhile, the US killed tens of pro-Assad fighters and over a dozen Russian citizens, the Syrian army shot down an Israeli F-16 and Israel downed an Iranian drone and launched its largest air strikes on Syria in decades. All that happened against the background of intensive regime attacks on opposition pockets in Ghouta and Idlib, which led to the death of an estimated 1,000 civilians in one week alone. No, war in Syria is far from winding down; instead, the last week has demonstrated how it has become a lot more complicated.

Twitter announced Wednesday a crackdown on accounts powered by software "bots" which can artificially amplify a person or cause and which have been accused of manipulating the social network during the 2016 US election. The San Francisco messaging platform said the move was intended to rid the service of spam-spewing automated accounts, and not aimed at people using the service according to the rules. "These changes are an important step in ensuring we stay ahead of malicious activity targeting the crucial conversations taking place on Twitter -- including elections in the United States and around the world," Twitter developer policy lead Yoel Roth said in a blog post.
