#BREAKING: A reminder to those keeping track, the Red Alerts usually come from rockets from #Gaza, not from #Syria or #Lebanon as this would suggest. #Netanyahu is in #Moscow meeting with #Putin about #Iran’s presence in #Syria. Hoping this is a false alarm.

A researcher at the #Palestinian Return Centre in #London-@PietroStefanini, attends a conference where he sees a video by a young Palestinian man-Ahmed Shehadeh speaks passionately about the 70-year ordeal his family has faced living stateless in #Lebanon
Inspired by "I challenge anyone to stay in a refugee camp-not for 70 years-because we were forced out of #Palestine 70 years ago-but for just 7 days" @PietroStefanini travels to the Burj al-Barajneh refugee camp where 50,000 #Palestinian refugees live
Pietro met #Palestinian women whom all still hope they'll be returning to #Palestine: "Our homes were demolished-lives destroyed-We still have our keys because we hope we'll go back 1 day"
Pietro says "What strikes me most is that everyone I meet here is trying to find hope"

If the #USA is worried about south #Syria ops it means the establishment is afraid of #SAA's success. Obviously, #SAA took eastern Ghouta with 35K jihadists and the south today has with 20k-25k jihadists & FSA and the geography is much easier.
Actually, the #USA has nothing to do in the south of #Syria. the area is not part of US national security nor it affects #US citizens or interest. It is #Israel that is extremely worried about #SAA regaining demarcation line with #IDF.

#Israel is aware #SAA and its #NDF have gained enough experience and is afraid the long 30-40 years of "peace on the borders" is over: #Damascus next step after the war will be the #GolanHeights, an area rich of oil and exploited by #US companies.

#Iran has obviously not fully considered #Russia. Russia does not want a war between #Israel and #Iran in #Syria. So the Russians are now trying to mediate between the two nations. Russia has too much at stake in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
#War between #Iran and #Syria would draw the #UnitedStatesOfAmerica into the fight and that would be a disaster for #Russia. Believe it or not, Russia does not want to tangle militarily with the US or Israel in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
Scenario 1:
#Iran will launch another strike but it may come from #Hezbollah in #Lebanon or #Hamas in #Gaza. Or it could be another attack from #Syria into #Israel. My guess is that it will be a #terrorattack. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot #airstrike

#Syria launched 10s of missiles against 4 #Israel/I military objectives in the occupied #GolanHeight in response to continuous Israeli provocation of war (hitting Syrian & allies' targets in various locations).

#Israel/I jets violated #Lebanon airspace last night to bomb #Syria
#Israel continuous provocation to trigger another war in #Syria w/ #Iran has been met with Iranian refraining from retaliating coz it is due to the hosting country to respond.

#Russia is constantly asking #Damascus to avoid falling into Israel's trap

#Israel intercepted 4 out of 20 missiles launched by #Syria air defence system into occupied #GolanHeight. 16 missiles reached their targets according to Damascus.

#Israel, before the Syrian retaliation, bombed several targets in #Syria for the fourth time in less than a month.

#Lebanon: The final analysis of the #LebaneseElection2018 shows (a.) the electoral triumph of Hezbollah,Amal&allies (b.) division of Sunnis, with weakness of PM Hariri, & (c) a lesser division of the Christians. (1)
The Sunni vote was distributed among PM Hariri, Miqati, Karami & few others. Hariri, being not objectionable by Hezbollah, can still get another term. But this will depend on orientation of his program’s regional relations. (2)
President Aoun will be challenged by the new gains of the Lebanese Forces, but not a challenge strong enough to undermine his current position. (3)

Wow! I am watching @almanarnews discussing the parliamentary elections and they have shown videos in some voting locations of #Hariri men distributing money to voters waiting to vote. #lebanonelections2018
However, preliminary indications are that the candidate challenging #Hariri in his home turf #Saida, Ousama Saad, will be elected.
Polls will close in 4' in #Lebanon, the access to vote has been slow, news anchors are calling on voters to enter voting locations, even if it means they will be packed to earn the right to vote after 7 p.m. local because there will be no extension. #lebanonelections2018

Geolocation shows that this picture () of a Ferrari with licence plate "UNP" was indeed taken in #Lebanon. That licence plate was or is used by UN personnel in #Israel. Can @UN confirm or deny this car belongs to their staff?
I've reached out to @UN_Lebanon to clarify this issue.
It's not the first time a sports car with "UNP" licence plates is spotted in #Lebanon. @THE_47th noticed this Porsche "UNP 1900" in Beirut in September 2015.

US warships in the Mediterranean sea are launching missiles against the Syrian Army at the T4 Airbase, not far from #ISIS-held areas of #Homs desert.
Syrian air defense have intercepted some missiles
UPDATE: Pentagon and White House both claim the US is NOT attacking #Syria. If true, this would mean #Israel conducted the attacks.

The title & first paragraph of this article indicates the main concern of this writer: #RegimeChange.
Q: Why would someone be worried about regime change in #Iran, unless they have interests in such a regime remaining in power. Interesting

The term “anti-Iran” is interesting. Has #Iran’s regime left anything to be supportive of? Butchering innocent people across the #MiddleEast, gross #HumanRights violations back home, wasting billions on an unnecessary nuclear program, ballistic missiles & terrorism.
(2/21)
And talking about #NorthKorea being “disinclined” shows how #Iran is terrified of losing Pyongyang in its trek to obtain nuclear weapons & the ballistic missiles. Now Tehran is all alone. But why is this writer so worried about it? Again, a matter of common interest?

#Breakingnews:
#Hezbollah Nasrallah said: "If the Lebanese authority decides the #Israeli oil platform should stop working, in few hours these will be neutralised" (by Hezbollah anti-ship missiles).
The reason why #Hezbollah launched his menace to #Israel is due to #USA Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs, David Satterfield (visiting #Lebanon) who threatened the Lebanese authority about preventing #Lebanon from exploring their oil
#USA Assistant Secretary David Satterfield said in closed doors to the Lebanese authorities:"If you don't give up of 860 sqkm of your territorial water to #Israel we won't allow you to exploit your oil in block 9"
#Hezbollah answered the #USA and #Israel today, through Nasrallah.

BIG NEWS overnight

- #Israel struck x12 military targets across #Syria (4+ directly controlled by #Iran).

- #Syria dispatched drone to #Golan (from T4 AB); downed by #Israel.

- In subsequent “ambush,” one Israeli F-16 was shot down by Syrian air defenses; landed in Galilee.
#pt: After that wave of escalator incidents, #Israel has launched a second mass wave of airstrikes in #Damascus - 6+ allegedly located near #Assad’s presidential palace.

*All* #Syria Army & pro-regime facilities have reportedly been placed on red alert.
#pts: It’s no secret that #Israel has been increasingly exasperated at #Iran’s growing capabilities & infrastructure in #Syria - escalation in strikes makes sense.

BUT an F-16 shoot-down raises big questions. Some reports say S-125 was responsible (missile wreckage in picture).
