#BREAKING: #Turkish media (#Erdogan's Anadolu Agency) released video of the first S-400 SAM battery of #Turkey which were delivered by two #Russia Air Force's An-124-100 transport airplanes, RA-82038 and RA-82013 from 224th Flight Unit at #Akinci AB, #Ankara few hours ago.
Based on these videos, the #Russia Air Force's An-124-100s transported the first #Turkey's S-400 SAM battery to #Akinci AB, #Ankara without its missiles. The missiles will be probably delivered by sea.
What we can see in these videos are the 5P85TE3 launcher carries and their BAZ-6909 artillery tractors but without any missile. Due to safety reasons & also inability of #Turkey to operate its first S-400 SAM battery, the missiles will be delivered by means of ship in two months.

1) Yıllarca Adıyaman menzil ilçesinden adını duyuran, nakşibendiciliğin en güçlü koludur.
38 cemaatten oluşan akepede nurcu fetoştan sonra en güçlü yapıya sahip menzilciler, bu gün fetoşun geri plana çekilmesi ile devlet kurumlarında istediği gibi cirit atıyor..
2) Menzil Tarikatı Raşit Erol zamanında duyulmaya başlamış Nakşibendiliğin kollarından birisidir. Raşit Erola suikast yapıldıktan 2 yıl sonra öldüğünde yerine kardeşi Abdulbaki Erol geçer..
3) Dergah dediğimiz yerler 5-10 yıl öncesine kadar müridlerin bulunduğu yerlerde bodrum katı ya da evlerde toplandıkları yerlerdi. Bugün buralar genelde lüks mekanlar ve ana merkezler olan “Semerkand Kültür Merkez”lerine bağlıdırlar.

#Istanbul #Reelection Today- ~6 hrs left to polls closing. High stakes. Hoping for a smooth, Democratic & peaceful process. It will be an intense evening count. I’ll report updates periodically. Reporting on the ground from #Turkey @sibeledmonds
#IstanbulReelection- 39 Districts, 10,560,963 Votes. That’s a lot of votes to count! Down to 2 Mayoral candidates: Ruling Party #AKP candidate Yıldırım vs Main Opposition Party #CHP Candidate İmamoğlu. Polls will close at 5:00 pm here (in ~6 hours).
Over 1/3 of #Turkey’s population lives in #Istanbul. A good chunk of national GDP & many many billion dollars District budget for the elected #Mayor. #AKP lost in mayoral elections of biggest cities: #Ankara, #Izmir & #Antalya, with #Istanbul as the “hottest tamale” TBD today.

Seçim sonucu Analizi:

Erdoğan 25 yıldır hizmet verdiği #İstanbul'u kaybetti.

Melih Gökçek'in 25 yıldır hizmet verdiği #Ankara Kaybedildi.

Çeyrek asırdır aralıksız seçilen ve binlerce büyük projelere imza atan bir parti neden kaybetti?

Bazı Nedenleri sıralayalım...
* Ak Partinin Kadın politikalarındaki rezaleti.

Kadın için çıkarılan yasalar Batı yaşam tarzı baz alınarak yapıldı. "Kadının beyanı esastır" diyen aile bakanı zina edenlerin yanında yer aldı.

Ak Partinin kadın politikası aileyi dağıttı, Ak parti ise aile üzerine kurulmuştu.
*Damadın Hazineye atanması

Başkanlık seçimlerinden sonraki en büyük hayal kırıklığı Damadın hazinenin başına atanmasıydı.Bu atama ne etik nede ahlakiydi

Bırakın karşı mahalleyi Erdoğanı yıllarca iktidara taşıyan kendi kesimi bile bu atamayı hazmedemedi. Alınmalıydı ama alınmadı

Preliminary observations on #TurkeyElections:
1) The opposition (#Nation bloc) making major gains, including the capital Ankara & Antalya.
2) HDP proved to be kingmakers - swayed votes to the #Nation bloc.
3) AKP losing significant votes & mayors to its #Peoples bloc partner MHP.
Preliminary prediction on #TurkeyElections: AKP cadres have seen that #Erdoğan's strategy of framing the elections around the theme "existential threat" has backfired, and will start complaining of losing votes, municipalities, & spoils to their ultranationalist partner #MHP.
Of #Turkey's 12 largest cities, the opposition is winning at least 7: #Ankara, #İzmir, #Adana, #Antalya, #Mersin, #Eskişehir, & #Diyarbakır. The largest city #Istanbul is a toss-up! #Bursa, too, is too close to call. AKP is losing Turkey's economic power houses. #TurkeyElections

🇹🇷 Elections locales en #Turquie dans un climat économique très dégradé par rapport aux présidentielles et aux législatives de juin 2018. economist.com/europe/2019/01…
🇹🇷 Dans ce contexte, l'opposition espère faire basculer plusieurs villes majeures :

➡️#Ankara, où @mansuryavas06 du #CHP (centre-gauche laïque) semble bien placé pour l'emporter
➡️#Istanbul, où @ekrem_imamoglu (CHP) est au coude-à-coude dans les sondages avec @BA_Yildirim (AKP)
🇹🇷 La troisième ville du pays, #Izmir, est un bastion du CHP et devrait le rester, mais l'opposition CHP+İYİ (nationaliste laïque) espère aussi gagner les grandes métropoles d'#Adana, #Bursa ou #Antalya et de nombreuses villes moyennes.

Living through first local elections in #Turkey After 32 years!!! The dynamics & methods are so different than US- In some ways cute & funny. Every 15 min Painted vans blasting music for each different party passing by my house!!! My dog’s been going nuts for the past 14 days!!!
The District Head showed up at my door this morning (at 8!)- gave me all the documentations and location for info for the voting boots. I am so Not used to this. Very interesting. Very different!!!
When compared with USA the cost of running for office is sooooo much lower. TV spots not in the equation. Volunteers, a few painted-postered vans making rounds, and yes: music, music, music.

#Turkey is sadly teetering on major economic problems. My heart breaks for them. It seems so strange to me that they’re considering purchasing an S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft SAM system from #Russia, when US support at the @WorldBank & @IMF is what they’re probably going to need.
#WashingtonDC has been working closely w/ its @NATO allies in #Ankara on the #Syria situation. The momentum of these positive, constructive relations should be seized upon to further broaden & deepen bilateral engagement. Conciliatory & deferential words/deeds are important.
… one possible path forward is special financing for a MIM-104 Patriot SAM system, w/ rush delivery to #Turkey… a priority for @ActingSecDef that’ll keep them in the F-35 program. #WashingtonDC values #Ankara as a #NATO ally. I don’t see why we can’t beat #Russia’s offer.

Thread , Very interesting report:
#ISIS Ambassador in #Ankara !!!
by @AnneSpeckhard
1/ Abu Mansour, an electrical engineer from #Morocco, came to #Syria in 2013. He traveled from Casablanca, Morocco, to Istanbul, Turkey, and through the southern border of Turkey into Syria. His first stop was Idlib, Syria, just as hostilities between al Nusra and ISIS had begun.
2/ Abu Mansour ended up on the ISIS side of that rift and was assigned by ISIS the job of an intake official on the Syrian side of the Turkish border. His job was to receive the steady flow of foreign fighters streaming into ISIS via #Turkey.

I like to think little fazes me in this business. But the stories of the four 4 #Iraq-i boys from #Telafar got me.
latimes.com/world/la-fg-ir…
The three you see in the pictures here are the Aoun brothers: Ali, 11; Khalil, 9; and Ahmad, 7. They were kidnapped by #ISIS in 2014, when the group overran northwest #Iraq. (2)
The fourth one, 11-year old Mahdi Ghazi Mohammad, who, like the others, is a Shiite Turkmen from Telafar, you can see here. (3) latimes.com/world/la-fg-ir…

Gut wrenching.

This young girl was killed today in #Assad regime shelling of Khan Sheikhoun, #Idlib. Her father could only hold her feet as she was carried away.

#Idlib might as well be Mars for 99.9% of the world these days.

The world is a cruel place. #Syria
Very important data from @ACLEDINFO, detailing the "disproportionate" scale of pro-#Assad violations of the demilitarized/de-escalation zone in #Syria's #Idlib/NW.

Moreover, regime shelling in Feb 2019 was x4 the previous monthly average.
@ACLEDINFO In a meeting with opposition fighters, #Turkey ordered #NLF factions to retaliate to #Assad regime shelling in #Idlib.

#Ankara also warned #Moscow & #Tehran that it'd withdraw from #Astana if attacks continued.

(cw: rape, murder) Thank you @Azuth for headsup about the start of this trial in #Turkey. This is the only news report I have found so far in English. Şule Çet rape, murder suspects ordered detained after first court hearing. ahvalnews-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/ahvalnews.…
The defence team have “stressed that Şule Çet was not a virgin and that she drank alcohol,” and claimed that a “woman's agreement to drink alcohol with a man in a secluded place counted as sexual consent.” #suleicinadalet #Turkey
Two men have been charged with raping and killing Şule Çet, a university student, whose body “was found to have fallen from an office on the 20th storey of a skyscraper in #Ankara in the early hours of May 24, 2018.” #suleicinadalet #Turkey

The map of Syria
Turkish President #Erdogan will meet with his Russian counterpart on January 23 to discuss the future of the Syrian east and the city of Manbij. This comes after a telephone conversation between Erdogan and #Trump before yesterday.1/12
#Syria #Turkey #USA #Russia
With the scrutiny of the Turkish, American, Kurdish and Russian military movements in the Syrian east and its surroundings, it is now possible to develop a scenario that will be closest to what will be the map of the Syrian East.2/12
#Syria #Turkey #USA #Russia #Iran #Israel
In a secret visit to #Ankara a few days ago, a Syrian delegation led by Ahmed al-#Jarba, a leader of a military group of Arabs supported by the International Coalition and #Washington, arrived from the areas of #SDF.3/12

Ex-Nusra (#AQ rebranded HTS) walked into its own death by taking a large territory in #Idlib and its surrounding. The defeat of large groups like Ahrar and Souqourv al-Sham (who showed little resistance) and the elimination of Zinki group will have deadly consequences on AQ.+
No doubt #Turkey asked Ahrar et al to stand down & avoid fighting (for now). It means #Ankara would be happy to see the end of its presence in #Idlib on the long term. For this, Erdogan needs to see a very large battle taking place first in the north between these groups and #AQ
Erdogan & Putin will have a meeting soon to discuss the #Kurds and #AQ in #Idlib. I expect hot spring in Idlib and a large offensive against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. Abu Mohammad al Joulani's ambition (from ex-ISIS emir to AQ Emir to ruler of Idlib) is helping to end this phenomena.

THREAD on @RT_Erdogan's @nytimes op-ed, #Ankara's relations with @realDonaldTrump, #Putin
1.#Erdogan's op-ed - masterpiece of communication effort in hostile info-environment,the lobbysts who worked on it deserve credit for understanding psychology of Western reader&current political discourse in #US which helps them pick arguments urbi et orbi
nyti.ms/2REWFsY
2. Endorsment: #Erdogan basically argues #Trump is right in his decision to depart #Syria but it should be done in a smat way to meet "interests of US, international cummunity & Syrians" => shout out to both Trump's conservative constituency & liberals: "TUR cares about YOU"

Hay'yan, Anadan & Haritan under Jihadists of Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham Led by Abu Mohammad al-Joulani, the ex #ISIS officer, the ex-al Qaeda in the Levant and the actual leader of a large number of foreign fighters.

Joulani is taking position opposite #SAA.

google.com/maps/place/Hra…
Rural and the city of #Idlib, the rural area of #idlib, #Aleppo & #Hama are under Jihadists control. Is it time for the Syrian army, supported by #Russia to stop the jihadists advance if #Turkey is incapable of doing the job it has promised at #Astana?

#Turkey is embarrassed by Jihadists overwhelming control of most of the #Astana area of control. Joulani is forcing his place on #Ankara unless the Turkish army moves in to defeat him, or to steps aside and allows the #Syrian army to do the job.

Details on #Khashoggi affair:
News coming out from #Turkey that President @RT_Erdogan is still hot on the affair, presenting a large list of demands to #SaudiArabia and the #USA, including compensation for the devaluation of the Turkish lira and support to #Qatar and #Egypt MB +
#Turkey has received Khaled al-Faysal 4 times and was agreed to invest $30 bn in the country. In addition, there are tens of Fethullah Gülen in #SaudiArabia that #Riyadh will have to "deal with" to please #Ankara.

#CIA Director didn't listen to the Saudi conversation between the consulate & MBS head office but it seems MBS was also present and his voice seems clear in the taped conversation. Saoud al-Kahtani denied MBS's presence during #Khashoggi's interrogation

Crown prince Mohammad Bin Salman lied when he said Khashoggi left the consulate.

He also lied when he said Khashoggi died from a kind of "Karaté fight" with 15 men.

It all depends on #Turkey and only #Ankara : will Erdogan bring out the truth or plays along the Saudi lie?
I believe #Turkey President Erdogan won't sell out his own reputation and will have to unravel the truth with solid proof in #KhashoggiMurder . Not an easy choice.

Nothing and nobody can remove MBS from his throne except the #USA .... or a coup d'etat.

#BreakingNews:

#Syria #Idlib postponed until 15 of #Decembre to start with, with a 15km buffer zone and an engagement of #Turkey to disarm Nusra ( or merge it) and neutralise all other jihadists.
#Moscow has accepted to give #Ankara more time (for after the US sanctions really) to sort out #Idlib and the jihadists in the city, defusing the #US intention to bomb #Syria.

So: no job for warmongers for the next couple of months. Find another war.
#turkey wants the #idlib case to be postponed until the constitutional changes and the peace process to kickoff in #Geneva: more time for Idlib and Turkey to sort out its affairs with Syrian proxies.

All here in details:

Short THREAD on #Russia - #Turkey divergences over #Idlib as seen from #Moscow:
1. In early August I described rationale behind RU positon & that "certain level of understanding reached w/ TUR that there should be no [large-scale] offensive on Idlib [then]"almon.co/338t
2.I recently reached out to the same senior RUS diplomat who reiterated #Moscow's bottom-line desire to settle the issue peacefully except for terrorists organization who he argued #Turkey too agreed to fight as part of AStana agreements.Yesterday,RU #Syria envoy Lavrentyev..
