Yesterday in Istanbul a disabled Syrian girl swapped out her tin can legs for prosthetics. Fleeing Syria's civil war Maya, from Aleppo, has been living in a camp in Idlib.  What a brave and beautiful little girl - her life now transformed by a doctors act of kindness. @Reuters

Quoted @fahrettinaltun

The Netherlands told Turkey that the reporter, who was deported today, had links to Jabhat al-Nusra. We acted on intelligence from the Netherlands and took a precautionary measure.

The first statement from Turkey re. deported Dutch journalist @AnsBoersma mentioned ISIS and PKK. This tweet mentions Jabhat al-Nusra

Bravo! About time. I remember spending months working for free at radio stations while waitressing at night, it was exhausting. That was 10 years ago - this shouldn't still be a thing.

Erdogan’s party faces potential loss in Ankara and tight race in Istanbul in March local elections - ‘weak showing by the AKP would be a symbolic blow and illustrate how frustration over the economy has hurt a politician long seen as unbeatable.’

Just heard this Turkish proverb on the radio during a discussion on Brexit: "An Englishman will burn his bed to catch a flea".

Trump has gone after Turkey's economy again - threatening to unleash 'economic devastation' if they attack the Kurdish fighters backed by the U.S. in Syria. Turkey called the remarks a 'fatal mistake' adding it was best not to communicate policy over social media // @ReutersTV

'Saudi men use a gov. website to manage the women they have guardianship over, granting or denying them the right to travel, for example, and even setting up notifications so that they receive a text message when their wife or daughter boards a plane.'

The sister of one of the Saudi women rights campaigners currently in jail - "She said she had been held in solitary confinement, beaten, waterboarded, given electric shocks, sexually harassed and threatened with rape and murder."

Reporting is not a crime. Deeply disappointing that Myanmar’s courts do that believe that simple truth.

"I am not surprised if we see more girls doing what Rahaf has done. Taking the lead after #Rahaf and not wanting to live in this male #guardianship system." @SAbudayyeh @equalitynow #Saudi guardianship @TRF_Stories. @cooglea @hrw @monaeltahawy @musawah

Since Riyadh launched an anti-corruption crackdown dozens of private jets are stranded at airports across the kingdom. Some have been handed over by the state others belong to Saudis reluctant to flaunt their wealth. @reuters exclusive via @alexjcornwell

These are the conditions Syrian refugees in Lebanon (Arsal) have to deal with. Desperate cold that seems to surprise UN aid agencies every winter. And they still don’t want to go back to live under Assad. Imagine their fear of being forced to return.

Turkey cannot accept Trump adviser's comments on Kurdish fighters, Erdogan says

The Asad regime lost its legitimacy due to its atrocities against the Syrian people. We therefore closed the British Embassy in Damascus in 2012. We have no plans to reopen it. End of story.
