All big cities were lost or heavily contested. The enemy was as close as two kilometers to the center of #Damascus.

Then #Russians came. Slowly but methodically, they started to bombard insurgents, which we can call a conglomerate of various ideological and interest groups, including designated terrorists such as Jabhat Al Nusra and #ISIS.

The regime of #Iran, like virtually all in the #MiddleEast, is vile and we hope one day it’s citizens will be free. But what the international #msm is doing right now with its coverage is essentially trying to aid the US government in another regime change attempt.
🧵<thread>
1/ #Iran was a democracy in 1953, but unfortunately its Socialist-leaning government nationalized its oil industry which was a no-no for the Imperialist #USA and #UK so the #CIA & #MI6 collaborated as they often do to overthrow its government and install a bloody dictator. #Shah
2/ the US plays lip-service to wanting democracy in the #MiddleEast, but what it demands is FIELTY to the US Empire. Egyptian people bravely and at great cost overthrew a bloody dictator and established the Arab World’s biggest democracy. The new govt wasn’t pro-US and in 2013…

BREAKING: #ISIS Furqan releases speech from spokesman Abu Umar al-Muhajir, contrary to reports of his death in May 2022.

Speech is titled, “And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah (i.e. this Qur’an), and be not divided among yourselves."
Last Furqan speech was issued in Apr. 2022, which also featured Muhajir. There has not been a speech from an ISIS leader since the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in October 2019.
Muhajir focuses on the group's recent surge of operations targeting Christians in Africa, as well as its continued emphasis on prison breaks/raids as a top operational priority across its active territories.

#Kharkov #Ukraine
In #Syria, the ancient city of #Tadmur was liberated from #ISIS. #Russia celebrated a classical music concert in the ancient amphitheatre in #Palmyra. Then ISIS retook the city for a few weeks before it was defeated again. These are tactical victories.
Experienced armies understand that holding the ground is unimportant when a battle is lost. When there is a need to withdraw, there is no hesitation, regroup, and attack again at a later stage.

#NATO is guiding the battle and identifying the weakness in #Russia's line.+
However, Ukrainian army is no longer in a position to win back the lost territories. Tactical victories are used for temporarily propaganda purposes. We have seen the same tactics in other wars. Giving a false sense of victory to #Ukraine is cruel. #Russia will retaliate harder.

This "breaking" news was revealed 7 yrs ago. What's "new" is MI5 would've known all this before her #ShamimaBegum's nationality was revoked. In other words, they tacitly knowingly approved. During my time in HMP Belmarsh I met a young British man who told me a shocking story. 1 Image
He'd been recruited & paid large sums by #MI5 to infiltrate #ISIS & report back. But after suspecting he was working both sides they arrested & prosecuted him under terror laws. His case was so sensitive much was heard in secret with unprecedented media reporting restrictions. 2
Despite being found not guilty of the main charge he was placed under TPIMs (house arrest). When that order expired he was rearrested. He remained in prison while the government sought to deport him to the land of his parents' origin - even though he was British and had 3

30 killed & 700 wounded n #Iraq following inter-Shia clashes btwn @Mu_Alsadr supporters on one side & other Shia groups, including the security forces, on the other side. This battle is not expected to last for very long but the sequence of events leads to Al-Sadr responsibility.
It is the responsibility of @Mu_AlSadr to come out and ask his supporters, including the well-armed Saraya al-Salam, to leave the streets and provinces and end this useless battle.
The Sadrist supporters closed Um al-Kasr harbour in #Basrah, disturbing the oil export.
In such a chaotic situation, many other groups, including #ISIS terrorists, can take advantage and fire on all sides. The immaturity of @Mu-AlSadr in the political did not foresee such a strong possibility.

1-The killing of #al_Qaeda leader #Al_Zawahiri AZ has prompted valuable debates among analysts and experts of Jihadism regarding the implications of his death, AQ's current state of affairs and its future moves.
2-The divisive issue so far has been whether AZ was a successful leader and whether AQ is still relevant. I will add most of the pieces that have been written so far.
3-@Charles_Lister looks at how the killing of AZ in the Taliban-rule Kabul may create tension within the group's ranks. He raises the question regarding the group's commitment to #Doha agreement.

Well, this is quite the development in #Afghanistan: the #Taliban spokesman has stated that the explosion in Kabul yesterday was the result of a US drone strike against #ISIS-K targets👇
I'm surprised the US would do this (& esp in Kabul) now, given ongoing discussions w/the #Taliban on a host of other issues. Suggests the US calculated the benefit of target removal to outweigh the costs w/the TB (eg in ongoing talks) for conducting the strike. 2/n
One has to wonder if the #Taliban gave tacit approval for the strike, which would present the US with a lower cost to factor into its calculation, as the benefit of the target's removal doesn't immediately appear to be resoundingly high (though more info could emerge on that).3/n

#TTP's desires for appearing as a mainstream entity are clearly visible.

A shift from the typical orthodox specific Clan or Ethnicity centric press releases to a general approach towards all Ethnicities centric press releases has been witnessed.
