It was reported that as a result of the airstrike, 1 Syrian soldier died and 2 were injured. The newspaper ‘Al-Watan’ noted that one of the wounded is an officer. A bit later, the Syrian Defense Ministry added that the airstrike was made by 2 American helicopters. The Pentagon has denied the information about an air strike at a checkpoint in Syria.

2 The USA — Syria

‘The Wall Street Journal’ reported that the USA intend to impose sanctions against a number of companies that interact with the Syrian authorities. The sanctions may affect companies in the European countries and individuals in Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. ‘The Wall Street Journal’ reported while citing their sources that the USA are investigating «the international companies, associated with the regime». Washington expects to cut off the financial ties between the Syrian authorities and other states. ‘The Wall Street Journal’ did not specify which companies are in question. Earlier, ‘The New York Times’ reported that Washington intends to tighten the sanctions against Syria in order to achieve a change of power in the country, despite the fact that many experts doubt the effectiveness of such approach.

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Belarus did not confirm that information. The interior Ministry spokeswoman, Olga Chemodanova, called that allegations to be fake. She underlined that the lists of the detainees were posted at the entrances to the pre-trial detention centers. On Monday, the ex-presidential candidate in Belarus, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, posted a video on YouTube where she stated that she is ready to become a national leader. «I am ready to take the responsibility and act as a national leader in order to calm down the country, and let it return to a normal life» — she explained.
