No mention was made of the facts that a Saudi invasion, not Iranian meddling, began this war, which has led to what has been assessed as the world's worst humanitarian crisis, in 2015;that the Saudi occupiers, who receive at least 70% of their weapons
from their chief strategic partner, the #US, have killed thousands of #Yemeni civilians; that while #Houthi missile strikes have mainly targeted Saudi military installations and oil infrastructure, the #Saudis and their invasion partners have indiscriminately attacked
civilians, partially or completely destroying over 500 healthcare facilities and bombing over 100 ambulances, even as the Covid-19 pandemic has ravaged the country.

But the #Houthi moves also point to the simpler, more-sinister reason why this war has turned so violent:

در لحظات حساسی از بازار هستیم که #تحلیل_تکنیکال در تشخیص روند بازار نیاز به چشم دوم دارد. اما از دریچه بررسی رفتار شبکه #onchain، به دنبال پاسخی برای سوال #کجای_چرخه_هستیم، بر مبنای #نظر_شخصی خواهیم گشت.
۱- ابتدا نمودار #CoinYearsDestroyed را مرور کنیم. این نمودار تخمینی است از حجم فروش کوین‌های پیرتر (در مالکیت 🐳و⛏) در ۳۶۵ روز اخیر است. به صورت واضح، روند نزولی 🟢 نشان از #Accumulation یا کاهش فروش بزرگان بازار و روند صعودی 🔴 نشان از سرعت‌ بالای فروش کوین‌های پیر است. Image
۴- با قیاس چرخه حال با چرخه پیشین، واضح است که با سقف فروش دوره قبل فاصله قابل توجهی داریم. این سقف همیشه در هر چرخه جدید پشت سر گذاشته شده است. دلیل آن پیرتر شدن طبیعی شبکه/کوین‌ها با گذر‌زمان است.

None of #Plato dialogues were fully translated into Arabic or Persian in the classical period - and on that we have ‘Abd al-Rahman Badawi’s classic study - a short thread on #Persian translation 1/
The lives of the two modern #Persian translators of #Plato can be rather instructive on the nature of modern #iranian intellectual history 2/

The numbers of #Zeynabiyoun brigade fighters in #Syria has substantially decreased after #Pakistan crackdown on covert #IRGC recruitment since 2016. Almost a cat & mouse game of busting recruitment cells, chasing new ones & methods of recruitment. /1

#Pakistan probably has been more effective in curbing #IRGC recruitment of fighters for #Syria than #Afghanistan, where officials and lawmakers were more vocal in criticizing #Iranian covert recruitment but not matched by a robust crackdown. /2…
#Israel+#Turkey indirectly helped #Pakistan's crackdown on #IRGC recruitment for #Syria through dozens (possibly hundreds) of strikes on #Zeynabiyoun positions. Pres #Erdogan reportedly informed Pak officials about targeting #Iran's Pak recruits. /3

The secret #war on oil smuggling to fund Hezbollah
Part 2 - (11 Tweets)
And back to the oil tankers - if indeed #Israel hit these tankers, then it is likely that the marine force & the special units, above and below the surface of the water, worked overtime. 1/11
But no #Iranian ship sank or caught fire among the damaged ships, acc to @WSJ. The Iranians said nothing, nor did they admit that their ship had been hit. Neither Israel nor the Americans until yesterday.

The secret war on oil smuggling to fund Hezbollah
The #smuggling axis and the money laundering- hundreds of millions of dollars that pass through 🇸🇾Syria to the #terrorist organization (#Hezbollah) in 🇱🇧Lebanon. This is how the "oil war" is conducted.
1/25–Part 1
#Iran's oil smuggling into Syria is not a new issue. They have been in place for several years, even before the #Trump administration imposed sanctions on Iran and on Syria.
The question facing Western intelligence was how #Syria pays Iran for the oil it receives. 2/25
As of May2018, when the #Iranians were barred from transferring funds in the international financial system, they had trouble getting the proceeds or payments for the oil they smuggled to China, North Korea, Syria & other countries like Turkey where oil was smuggled inland. 3/25

🇮🇱Israeli Strikes Target #Iranian Oil Bound for Syria
Campaign against ships, using mines, shows an expansion of hostilities in the Mideast.…
#Israel has targeted at least a dozen vessels bound for Syria and mostly carrying #Iranian oil out of concern that petroleum profits are funding extremism in the Middle East, 🇺🇸U.S. and regional officials say, in a new front in the conflict between Israel and Iran.
Since late 2019, Israel has used weaponry including water mines to #strike Iranian #vessels or those carrying Iranian cargo as they navigate toward Syria in the Red Sea and in other areas of the region.

How the 🇮🇱Israeli defense deals with the threat of #Hezbollah's precision missiles.
PART 4— (last part, 18 tweets)
In contrast, determining a red line when it comes to #accuracy is more elusive. 1
Certainly when that "existential threat" does not exist in its classical form. For comparison, #Israel did not launch a pre-emptive strike against the threat of tunnels from #Gaza (until it saw terrorists exiting a tunnel near Kibbutz Sufa and launched Operation Eitan),
nor a pre-emptive war on Palestinian terror, despite hundreds of deaths (until Seder attack). Protective wall).#Israel refrained from launching a similar counterattack on another strategic threat - the enormous amount of #chemical weapons that #Syria held until the Civil War. 3
