US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May have blamed Russia and the Syrian regime for the ongoing “humanitarian catastrophe” in the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta. In a phone call on Sunday, Trump and May discussed Syria and “the appalling humanitarian situation in Eastern Ghouta.” The two leaders blamed Russia and the Syrian regime for what they consider a “humanitarian catastrophe.”
Meanwhile, an unknown gunman has opened fire on a senior police officer from Kirkuk who currently lives in Sulaimani, severely injuring him. The incident took place on Saholaka Street, a popular area in Sulaimani where people gather to eat and drink tea. The officer’s name is Khalid Hassan Hussein.
Lastly, Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” has placed him in the Oscar history books. Peele was crowned the winner in the best original screenplay race at Sunday’s Academy Awards, making him the first black screenwriter to receive the honor. In his speech, Peele thanked the people “who raised my voice and let me make this movie.”
