CIA Memo 1986:

"We judge that U.S. interests in #Syria probably would be best served by a Sunni regime as it may well include relative moderates interested in securing western aid and investment. Such a regime would probably be less inclined to escalate tensions with #Israel"
CIA Memo 1986:

"The economy is #Syria 's most pressing internal problem, and hopes for near-term improvement are dim. The US Embassy reports that the vast majority of Syrians are finding it increasingly difficult to afford basic necessities"

Born & raised in #Fanar #Lebanon, a tiny country in the middle east with a lot to offer. I always had a positive outlook on life maybe because of the culture or values🤷‍♀️.
If you don't know #Lebanon or a #lebanese then you should start mingling 🤣
@IWS_Network #VoicesIWS
I grew up surrounded by a loving, joking & tough type of family that always support each other even amidst fighting. You can imaging being 4 kids in different age groups can cause a lot of fights growing up 😂 #siblingsfight #family #VoicesIWS
@IWS_Network
I have my issues🤷‍♀️! I always wanted to prove myself & make my family proud(2nd child). A pressure that was just in my head; they were always proud of us. I wanted to grow up to be a doctor or an army officer like my dad. Let's just say I changed my mind! #VoicesIWS @IWS_Network

Netanyahu can do that only until US withdraws (not sure Russia would wait to respond until the full withdrawal). #Israel is weaker than ever: Arab relshp doesn't equal power.

#Syria will not abandon #Iran & #Hezbollah won't abandon the Palestinian cause.

There is no doubt #Israel was afraid of the Syrian air defence system, hiding behind two civilian aircraft and endangering the lives of hundreds of civilians, for fear of the new air-defence system delivered by #Russia to #Syria./+
Syria didn't have so many anti-air defence system before the war or even until 2017. It is thanks to #Israel continuous violation of the Syrian airspace and the anger of #Russia that a certain balance has been created, to the benefit of #Syria./+

When the Syrian missile reached al-Khdeyra in #Palestine, #Israel stopped bombing military objectives south #Damascus.

Israel is trying to push toward a confrontation with #Russia in the Levant to stop @realDonaldTrump from withdrawing.

Have a go @netanyahu for 100 more days.
#Damascus responded to #Israel/i violation of its sovereignty when 3 Jets violated #Lebanon airspace & launched its missiles from above the Mediterranean.

There r no "#Hezbollah boarding any plane" among casualties since the target was not the airport.

#Syria air defence shot down 12 out of 14 missiles launched against warehouses (the airport was not the target). The #Israel/i jets, violating Syrian and Lebanese airspaces, endangered #Lebanon civilian aircraft flying above #Syria during the attack

Israel’s Operation #NorthernShield, which recently exposed #Hezbollah’s cross-border attack tunnels, has prompted the perennial question: Are #Israel and #Hezbollah about to go to war in #Lebanon? I explore it in this @AlArabiya_Eng⁩ article & below 👇🏼 english.alarabiya.net/en/features/20…
The tunnels #Hezbollah burrowed are meant to facilitate the movement and infiltration into northern #Israel of hundreds of its fighters as part of its well-established military doctrine that calls for “the conquest of the Galilee.” jcpa.org/article/hizbul…
Tunnels aren't the main threat #Israel faces from #Lebanon. Before making #NorthernShield public @netanyahu met @SecPompeo to pass a msg to the Lebanese authorities: Stop #Hezbollah’s efforts to acquire to precision-guided missiles or Israel will act. jpost.com/Israel-News/Ne…

#Breakingnews:

#Hezbollah on full alert in #Lebanon and #Syria, calling its forces to be ready for war if #Israel initiate an aggression on Lebanon.

This measure came following Israel launching “Operation Northern Shield” to "destroy Hezbollah tunnels on the Israeli border."
#Hezbollah believes war is not imminent but mobilised its Special Forces already present in the south of #Lebanon.

#Israel said its ops is expected to last weeks, declared Northern Israel a military zone and sent its Israeli special forces.

I don't think @netanyahu, unwilling to continue a war with #Hamas, will engage in a foolish adventure against #Hezbollah in #Lebnon.

#Israel real message behind it? Could be to divert the attention since its PM is facing legal procedures.

We wait & see

Following the suspected Israeli strikes in #Syria, Hezbollah released a rare video threatening to retaliate against any Israeli attack in #Lebanon
The video depicts a series of targets, including several air bases, the Kirya (Israeli Military HQ in Tel Aviv) refineries in Haifa. #Israel #Lebanon
This is nothing new, and it's clear that Hezbollah's effort to build up its precision-guided missile arsenal is meant to try and overwhelm #Israel's air defense systems, and hit key infrastructure

One failed #IDF covert ops in #Gaza caused:
- The return of the "Axis of the resistance" stronger than ever, recovering losses caused by the war in #Syria
- The embarrassment to Arab states rushing towards #Israel
- A positive push to the Arab population
- the fall of Lieberman
The #US and #SaudiArabia plan to "sell the Palestinians" failed by a failed #IDF covert ops in #Gaza. @realDonaldTrump is tasting his first defeat in #Palestine.

The performance of #Gaza showed that #Israel is not ready for war against #Lebanon too.
#Israel should have limited itself to talk about its power rather than use it and fail.

Now we hear: #israel Iron Dome is not hermetic.

400 rockets launched and only 120 intercepted. How about 150,000 rockets and missiles launched by #Hezbollah?

#Lebanon can be tranquil.

#Moscow: S-300 to #Syria in 2 weeks. #Israel will be limited to bombing #Syria from afar, coordinate any flight above #Lebanon and #Syria with #Russia hours before and #Damascus won't hesitate to bring down an #Israeli jet over #Lebanon and Syria.

This is a major blow to #Israel and #USA.

#Syria can also, potentially, bring down any hostile force in the air occupying #Syrian territory.

#Riussia, by delivering the S-300 to #Syria, needs to deliver protection system around it.

#Russia is hitting 2 birds (Israel & US) in 1 stone (S-300 to #Syria).

I don't think this is the only price #Israel will pay for the 15 Russian servicemen killed. More to come.

Adding: #Iran Bavar to #Syria

Israel omnipotence is coming to an end.

#Israel has nothing to offer to #Russia and #Moscow has nothing to ask from #TelAviv. Airspace is closed, period.

So Israel will go and cry on Uncle Sam's shoulder: the magnificent @realDonaldTrump #USA

It is up to @PutinRF_Eng to rebuff #USA and #Israel and hold his ground firmly. I am aware of US lobby within #Russia but it is time to show the world that hegemony is over

#Moscow can ask for itself, for #Syria & substantial compensation for Russian families.

BREAKING - Likely #Israel airstrikes just hit a scientific research center - reportedly linked to the SSRC - in #Latakia.

#Assad regime air defenses were allegedly activated in multiple provinces: #Latakia, #Tartus, #Homs & #Hama.
Mabrouk #Assad - your invincible air defenses shot down an aircraft!

... a #Russia IL-20 reconnaissance plane was shot down over #Syria tonight - amid #Israel airstrikes in #Latakia.

#OwnGoal

Tonight’s developments vis-a-vis #Israel & Russia are a pretty big deal.

It would seem #Israel may have acted without giving #Moscow prior warning = big challenge to their prior arrangement.

Or, #Russia did know, but got attacked by their errant ally in #Damascus = humiliating.

I was present & was the 1st journalist who entered the camp. I saw the massacre of Palestinians & Lebanese. Will be in my book in details.

36 years ago, #Israel protected its proxy, Falangists "Lebanese Forces", to commit the massacre of Sabra and Chatila.

Goodnight world...
In the memory of the 16th of September 1982, I share with you a small part of my forthcoming book about #Palestinian camps #SabraAndShatila and the massacre #Beirut #Lebanon.

Many descriptive parts are missing. It was a sad and shocking day that details never left my menory.

How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

Extraordinary.

Acc. to @BarakRavid sources, #Russia has told #Israel that it'll seek to force #Iran 100km away from #Israeli-held 1974 #Golan line.

That means all territory west of the red line on map (L).

= A truly wild fantasy.

Look where #Iran is now (R); per @ETANA_Syria:
@BarakRavid @ETANA_Syria #Israel has shot down an #Assad regime Sukhoi fighter jet, which took off from T4 Airbase & flew 2km into Israeli airspace.

x2 Patriot SAM missiles were used & multiple messages sent in multiple languages prior to shoot-down.

Another example of #Russia’s value in de-escalation.
@BarakRavid @ETANA_Syria #pt: Just 36hrs ago was #Israel's first operational use of the "David’s Sling" SAM system, used to down #Assad ballistic missiles.

Yesterday, #Russia’s MFA & MOD visited #Jerusalem to firm-up their security arrangements with #Israel.

I wrote that #Moscow is incapable - clearly.

From the beginning, Zionists advocated a "Jewish State" not just in #Palestine, but also in #Jordan, southern #Lebanon, and the #GolanHeights as well.
As it will be proved from the quotes below:

#Palestinians are not indigenous to #Palestine👈This propaganda has no other purpose than 2 further dehumanize Palestinians & justify #Israel’s ongoing ethnic cleansing & murder
In #BenGurion own words👇😡you'll see how that outrageous claim is far removed from historical reality

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.
