NEW: US facing "diverse, geographically dispersed & highly unpredictable threat environment" Nat'l Counterterrorism Center Dir. Christine Abizaid tells @WashInstitute
Attack/threat "most likely to occur in the #UnitedStates from lone actors...motivated by a range of ideologies" from #ISIS #alQaida to racism & white supremacy, sometimes a combination, per NCTC's Abizaid

"The threat is unpredictable" both in US & the Western world, she says
As far as non-US based groups/actors, #alQaida & #ISIS continue to pose top threats to the US homeland, per NCTC's Abizaid

1/10 Sur la révolution #Iran l'engrenage qui se met en place rappelle les débuts de la révolution #Syrie. J'ai fait ce fil il y a quelques temps sur l'enchaînement des événements en 2011.
Sur les similarités d'abord il y a l'étincelle:
2/10 en Iran sept 2022 Mahsa Amini est tué après avoir été arrêtée par la police des moeurs pour le non port du voile, en Syrie c'est l'arrestation et la torture d’enfants par le cousin d'Assad. Ces actes déclenchent les 1ere manifestations, manifestations qui sont immédiatement
3/10 réprimées dans le sang et via des tirs à balles réelles. Iran après 2 mois de contestation 400 manifestants morts tués. Syrie fin mai 2011, 2 mois après les premières manifestations environ 1000 manifestants tués.
Ce qui est très similaire c'est que les premiers morts

🧵 🇮🇱 🇱🇧 THREAD : L’élection de #Netanyahu va-t-elle remettre en cause l'accord historique entre #Israël et le #Liban sur la délimitation des frontières maritimes ? ImageImage
Le traité, signé jeudi dernier, a pour but de résoudre un différend de longue date entre #Israël et le #Liban au sujet de gisements de gaz situés sur la côte méditerranéenne au large de leurs côtes.

lepoint.fr/monde/le-liban…
Binyamin #Netanyahou, ancien PM et chef du bloc victorieux du Likoud, a exprimé à plusieurs reprises son désir de se retirer du traité.

Il estime que l'accord n'est pas dans l'intérêt d'#Israël et accorde trop de concessions au #Liban.

#American and #Saudi officials warned of an imminent #Iranian attack on Saudi Arabia and possibly #Erbil, according to the @WSJ. Here’s what else you need to know today from CTP and @TheStudyofWar’s daily Iran Crisis Update: criticalthreats.org/analysis/iran-…
At least 30 protests took place in 15 cities across 11 provinces on November 1. #IranProtests #مهسا_امینی
Unsubstantiated reports circulated that the regime flew around 150 personnel from Kataib #Hezbollah and other Iraqi proxies from Baghdad to Mashhad to support the protest crackdown.

1- The Maritime Agreement between Israel and Lebanon deserves support for 2 main reasons: First, No matter how you look at it, this is an agreement between #Lebanon and #Israel, and an actual recognition of Israel by #Hezbollah. #ترسيم_الحدود_البحرية
2- The rhetoric of “Israel does not exist and this is an occupied land etc…” will become irrelevant under the new reality. Hezbollah cannot say they will never negotiate with an enemy/occupier, because they just did.
3- Second, an agreement that focuses on the econ. interests of the 2 countries will elevate stability. Hezbollah’s war rhetoric will eventually fade out. On the long run, the resistance narrative will be outdated – the group itself chose the benefits of negotiations with Israel.

#Israel's Defence Minister is asking the army to be ready for a potential war: rubbish.
1. Israel has mobilised the forces for a month now
2. No official answers have been delivered to the Lebanese government
3. #Lebanon didn't respond to the Israeli not-yet-delivered reply.
4. #Israel's current government has decided from day one to postpone the negotiation and throw it in the arms of the forthcoming government, after the Knesset elections.
5. @yairlapid shall not agree on maritime demarcation in the last 20 days of his ruling
6. It will be up to the gov of #Lebanon or the President to announce the death of the indirect negotiation with #Israel. If that takes place, the #US & Israel will uphold the responsibility of war to the Lebanese government that insinuated to #Hezbollah to bomb the gas platforms.

Uncorroborated reports suggest that #Iran is mobilizing its proxies to suppress ongoing #MahsaAmini protests. If true, #proxy participation may indicate that Iran fears disloyalty among security personnel and requires additional manpower to quell unrest. 1/4 #IranProtests
Social media users reported that #Iranian leadership is seeking to mobilize 4,000 #Hezbollah members to participate in Iranian domestic protest suppression. CTP cannot independently corroborate these reports. 2/4
This isn't the first time we're hearing these reports: #Iranian leadership has long been suspected of deploying proxies to support security forces' crackdowns in prior protest waves, like the 2009 Green Movement. 3/4 voanews.com/a/iran-hints-a…

1/6 Je n'ai pas l'habitude de répondre aux haineux, je bloque mais là exception. 2015 a été l'année du départ massif des syriens pourquoi? Après 4 années de massacre et l'abandon total de la rébellion par les forces occidentales surtout après le massacre chimique aout 2013
2/6 et le renoncement #Obama synonyme de l'impunité passée et future d'#Assad. Il n'y avait plus d'espoir pour les syriens, et rien ne pouvait empêcher les bombes barils d'Assad de massacrer les civils, Obama avait mis son VETO sur la livraison d'armes anti aérienne aux rebelles.
3/6 Le soutien occidental aux rebelles est incomparable au soutien à l'Ukraine, les #USA ont voté un budget de 43 milliards de $ en soutien à l'Ukraine là ou le budget pour l'opposition syrienne était de 500 millions $ même pas totalement dépensé.

Es un buen momento para echar un poco de luz al tema #terrorismo y #crimen en america latina. Separar informes de #inteligencia de las causas judiciales y ayudar a comprender que estamos frente a dos caras de la misma moneda. Foto: Infobae
En la lucha contra el #terrorismo los informes de inteligencia orientan las pruebas que después las causas judiciales comprueban o descartan. La Triple Frontera, unión entre #argentina #paraguay #brasil es un paso de ilícitos.
La colaboración entre ARG, PAR, BRA es poca. En el 2002 se firmó un Acuerdo 3+1 con EEUU para gestionar la seguridad. No se cumplió en los gobiernos de #Lula y #Kirchner en Argentina. Fue retomado por #Macri y abandonado nuevamente por Alberto Fernández.

The people who assaulted press photographer Hassan Shaaban reiterated their threat to him with a bullet stuck to his car window, after he was attacked on Wednesday night by #Hezbollah supporters.

The assault happened after Shaaban filmed residents of the town of Beit Yahoun in #BintJbeil protesting the water shortage in their homes for several consecutive days.

With his camera, Shaaban conveyed the suffering of southerners, notably among the Shiite duo's supporters who complained that "we have money and weapons, but we have no water." The two parties' thugs threatened to kill Shaaban if he did not leave town.

1/5 Ce qui est dramatique pour les syriens cest le manque total de perspective de fin de conflit. Aujourd'hui demain et tous les jours #Poutine peut décider de jeter ses bombes sur les 4 millions de déportés syriens dans le nord du pays. Les 12 millions d'exilés refugiés de force

Estos serían los cinco iraníes que iban en el "misterioso" avión...
Algunos de ellos, según la información de inteligencia enviada a la Argentina, tendrían vínculos con la Fuerzas Quds, una división de los Cuerpos de la Guardia Revolucionaria Islámica especializada en operaciones de inteligencia militar.
Un dato no menor, este tipo de vuelos tienen una frecuencia muy alta entre Teherán y Damasco (Siria) para enviar armas con destino a Hezbolláh.

Israel realiza ataques preventivos constantemente contra los depósitos de estas armas en suelo sirio.
