Russian MoD released graphic showing how the Il-20 was shot down.Israeli AF F-16s masked themselves behind a Russian Il-20 during their airstrike against Syrian industrial facilities in #Tartus & #Latakia. Israel also used French Navy’s frigate Auvergne in area as cover.
4 Israeli F-16 jets attacked targets in Syria on Monday evening, approaching from Mediterranean at a low altitude. The Il-20 was on patrol in the same area.The warning came just a minute before the attack started,which did not leave time to move the Il-20 plane to a safe area.
Israelis have known that the Russian plane was present in the area, but this did not stop them from executing the provocation. As a consequence, the Il-20 was shot down by Syrian AD S-200 in response to the Israeli missiles attack.

.@nikkihaley called today's urgent UN Security Council meeting on North Korea. She slammed #Russia for helping #NorthKorea violate sanctions AND for pressuring UN experts to alter an independent report implicating Russian actors in NK sanctions violations. nbcnews.com/news/world/u-s…
TASS reports UN Ambassador Nikki Haley also accused Russia of facilitating the assassination of Kim Jong-Nam by supplying North Korea with the nerve agent ("biological substances")
Mistranslation or disinformation from TASS?? Even Sputnik isn't reporting @NikkiHaley accusing Russia of 'facilitating' Kim Jong-nam assassination. Sputnik quotes her slamming Russia for blocking stronger North Korea sanctions on chemical & biological substances after the murder.
This is not unexpected, as Manafort funded money from offshore bank accounts to pay for Craig’s hit piece on Tymoshenko, who was JAILED illegally in #Ukraine by pro-#Russia🇷🇺 Yanukovich (Manafort’s client). 2/
#Manafort charging document for today's guilty plea includes details of his planting disinformation in US press to smear political rivals of his pro-Russia clients in Ukraine. Eg "Plant some stink on Tymo"—painting a female rival as a criminal who paid for murder. Sound familiar?
Manafort had used the same propaganda smear tactics in Ukraine that Trump rolled out in his campaign for president in 2016. Manafort not only had Tymo soliciting murder. He pushed tribal divisions, using "Obama Jews" & anti-Semitism to tarnish her. assets.documentcloud.org/documents/4883…
#Manafort manipulated the media with disinformation and then used those planted news stories to manipulate US govt: "I have someone pushing it on the NY Post. Bada bing bada boom…The Jewish community will take this out on Obama on election day if he does nothing.”
OMG Pussy Riot member Pyotr Verzilov has been hospitalized in grave condition for suspected poisoning. Ekho Moskvy & Meduza report he’s been in emergency care since Tuesday. He’s lost his eyesight and ability to speak. #Russia apne.ws/LvfLzd5
THIS is #Russia: Artist/activist Pyotr Verzilov is in critical condition in suspected poisoning. He became ill after a court hearing over protests on Sunday. He recently served jailtime for running onto the World Cup field along w/ other Pussy Riot members.meduza.io/en/feature/201…
Not sure Verzilov made it to the pension protests. Police arrested him leaving his home after he gathered docs to help 2 other arrested PussyRiot members. He managed to get off a sarcastic tweet, that the cops would help him get to the jail quicker. He's now fighting for his life
Well, if you're part of the evil fucking Republican Party cabal that has been playing footsie with #Russia and accepting money laundered donations via the @NRA you would want to draw some heat away from your guy. Right?
Two words: Hillary Clinton.
No one has more reliably distracted the media from the real story for Republicans more than @HillaryClinton.
She is literally the goose who lays the golden egg for Republicans.
What are the best ways Republicans have found to get themselves out of the hot seat?
(2) "If Assad, Russia and Iran continue down the path they are on, the consequences will be dire," she said.
(3) "I also want to reiterate what I said last week to the Assad regime and anyone else contemplating the use of chemical weapons in Syria," Haley added. "The U.S. followed through when we said that we would respond to the use of chemical weapons. We stand by this warning."
As I feared and tracked, #RIAH [#Russia-#Iran-#Assad-#Hezbollah] is going to kill a lot of #Syrian people in #Idlib with CW and without CW then falsely claim that RIAH is innocent, its CW as well as all its killing is fabricated.
Why I am saying this?
I clarify in this thread
1/ #RIAH [#Russia-#Iran-#Assad-#Hezbollah] prepared #Idlib Ops almost to perfection. But every criminal commits a mistake which exposes his crime. And RIAH committed a huge mistake. But first let me dive into RIAH's criminal mind.
2/ I grew up in war in #Lebanon and witnessed it, it took me time in retrospect to understand what happened. The disinformation campaign by Assad was huge I'll explain few things so that you understand RIAH's modus operandi and psychological warfare, its raison d'etre and effect.
So it seems #Idlib ops (divided into 3 stages) has been moved for a further date, giving me enough time to close the Iraqi news and return to #Syria, soon.
#Turkey failed to integrate al-Nusra, aka Hayyat Tahrir al-Sham, within rebels army (it might succeed at a certain point); failed to isolate al-Qaeda (Hurras el-Deen) & foreign fighters, incl Chinese Uyghur jihadists. So Erdogan turned against the #EU
Short THREAD on #Russia - #Turkey divergences over #Idlib as seen from #Moscow: 1. In early August I described rationale behind RU positon & that "certain level of understanding reached w/ TUR that there should be no [large-scale] offensive on Idlib [then]"almon.co/338t
2.I recently reached out to the same senior RUS diplomat who reiterated #Moscow's bottom-line desire to settle the issue peacefully except for terrorists organization who he argued #Turkey too agreed to fight as part of AStana agreements.Yesterday,RU #Syria envoy Lavrentyev..
3. .alluded to #Russia's growing displease w/ #Ankara's inability to deliver upon its committments in the area that, as Lavrentyev said"is kind of their zone of responsibility."Instead,#Erdogan writing op-eds,trying to enlist support from #West/ern partners over #Idlib which is..
Iranian militias in #Syria
By the beginning of 2012, with the increasing peaceful demonstrations the #IRGC began to feel the danger to the regime of its ally Assad and the major schisms within the #Assad army. Opposition sources estimate the number of dissidents at 150,000.1/12
Because of Assad's field losses, Tehran gave orders to #Hezbollah terrorist militia to conduct military intervention to save #Assad. It was the first direct military presence of the militia in southern #Damascus and the vicinity of Damascus International Airport.2/12 #Iran#USA
Terrifying read on 9/11. US now calls Cuba embassy mystery that caused brain damage to 26 US personnel intentional “attacks”—likely by #Russia. If so, more stunning Russian aggression to add to the recent use of military-grade #Novichok nerve agent on #Skripal in #Salisbury UK.
“Moderate rebels played a key role in Turkey’s fight against terrorists in Northern #Syria; their assistance and guidance will be crucial in Idlib as well”
2-Erdogan: “Preventing the assault on #Idlib need not set back counter-terrorism efforts. Turkey has succeeded in fighting terrorist groups, including ISIS and the PKK, without harming or displacing civilians”
Notice how he doesn’t include Nusra /al-Qaeda in above group
3- Erdogan: “Turkey’s ability to maintain order in Northern #Syria is proof that a responsible approach to counter-terrorism can win hearts and minds”
Russia arrests at least 839 peaceful protesters including young children for opposing Putin's pension overhaul which raises the age of retirement and increases the wealth gap between the working class and corrupt Russian oligarchs. cnn.it/2QhJ2wf
Scenes from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Kazan and other cities as Putin's security forces attack and arrest peaceful protesters at Pension Reform Protests.
‘They are beating everyone up,’ shocked @novaya_gazeta reporter tweets from the ongoing crackdown on a peaceful Moscow rally against Putin’s unjust pension reform in #Russia.
Russian hitmen are literally killing people who threaten criminal Kremlin networks. Yet Trump and GOP are bent on bringing down people whose life's work is protecting Americans from Russian organized crime. Bruce Ohr witch hunt sure looks like somebody's protecting the criminals
Illicit financial dealings—money laundering—between Trump’s business and Russia is the scandal that explains targeting of obscure bureaucrats like Ohr. Just coincidence Trump is purging DOJ experts on Russia, organized crime and money laundering?? nytimes.com/2018/09/09/opi…#maddow
Muhammed Najem was in Ghouta saying the exact same things before Assad liberated that part of Syria from Jihadist "rebels". This teenager is taking selfies for propaganda purposes and shame on Al Jazeera for participating in this. #Idlib#IdlibDawn#IdlibOffensive #HandsOffSyria
Strange how the elite likes to promote conservation among us ‘cattle.’ In the late 1800’s, the Illuminati began to reconfigure its outward face. The higher levels started creating innocent sounding cover organizations to hide their meetings 1/38
behind. In 1901, the Astors contributed toward the creation of the Pilgrim Society, which was the cover organization for Amer. & Brit. 6° Princes of the Illuminati. I believe at least five Astors are now members of the Pilgrim Society. The Pilgrims had recently included 2/38
David Astor, John Jacob Astor 8th, and William Waldorf Astor 3rd. And during the 1970s, Baron Astor of Hever was the President of the #London branch of the #Pilgrims. This implies that Astor of Hever was at least the next level up in the chain of command.
