So, that’s three major things in Syria at once: Official Syria, Syrian rebels and ISIL.

Syrian Orthodox (Christian) Patriarch visits ISIL ravaged Deir ez-Zor, Syria, on Feb 3, 2018, a few days before US forces kill 200+ Russians in Deir ez-Zor, Syria.
 
Trying (again) to piece Syria story together. Some have hope.
Nobody wants ISIL.
 
Nobody wants the terrorists there. USA doesn’t want them. Europe doesn’t want them. Syrian Muslims don’t want them. Syrian Christians don’t want them. Russians don’t want them.
 
Nobody wants them.
 
Russians have been giving Syria (official Syria) the most help in fighting ISIL.
 
But, USA/Europe wants the SDF (Kurdish army) to overthrow the current Syrian govt to install a democratic govt. A new Syria. Maybe we should, maybe we shouldn’t, I don’t know.
 
So, that’s three major things in Syria at once: Official Syria, Syrian rebels and ISIL.
 
Nobody wants ISIL.
 
So that video is showing a victory where ISIL was driven out by a combination of Syrian Army (official) and Russia. It was a happy moment to visit a church ruined by ISIL and giving a blessing.
 
But those 200+ Russians killed by the USA a few months ago?
 
That was a few days after this visit. In this city of Deir ez-Zor, Syria, confirmed around Feb 12, 2018. This video was taken on Feb 3, 2018.
 
So, it’s a mess. Too many groups fighting about too many things in the same few cities. [DeirEzzor Damascus ,and Aleppo]. Still, I think a resolution is possible. Just not today. But for a moment, a small gap in early Feb, 2018, there was time to do a blessing.
