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./+

University bus accident in #Tehran (9 killed, 30 injured)
The regime said it was the cause of the stroke of the driver, but sources say, the bus was out of date.
Cable cars were supposed to be replacing old buses, but plan was not completed.
Video of the scene where the #Tehran Science & Research University bus accident leaves at least 9 dead & nearly 30 injured.

The toll is widely blamed on poor safety, the presence of older vehicles & the inadequacy of emergency services.
Where is all the money going?

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 👇🏼…
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.”…

Character Assassination…

“Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, believed that the bigger the lie, the more convincing. Machiavelli taught that the ends justify the means. Both “principles” are applied in character assassination.”
100’s of ad hominem attacks on MEK by Iran’s regime & its propagandists proven futile, as evidenced by the movement’s growing popularity & wherewithal in Iran, its standing on world stage, which leads us to conclude that Pillar’s diatribe doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell.
Desperate to survive, #Tehran has stepped up its war against the #MEK on three fronts: targeting its network in Iran, waging terrorism abroad, and demonizing it in the media. #Iran #FakeNews #YellowJoirnalism

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

My take-away from #TehranSummit this far is #Russia, #Turkey, #Iran each, by & large, can be satisfied w/ its outcomes. #Moscow & #Tehran realized #Erdogan has bigger assets & higher stakes in #Idlib than, say, in southern #Syria where he let #Assad get the opposition, thus..
..the idea for the summit was to get a deal where all the 3 can secure their bottom-line interests.They didn't fully achieve it since there will be another round of trilateral talks (some time in the future in #Russia) and the parties hope to settle #Idlib issue in #Tehran but..
..(a) #Turkey maintained credibility of the oppoaition (by that good cop-bad cop thing #Erdogan & #Putun played), (b) #Russia got his promise to deal w/ those attacking #Hmeymim (c) #Ankara received time to settle the major task of assorting militants (d)..

#Iran has given ballistic missiles to Shi’ite proxies in #Iraq and is developing the capacity to build more there to deter attacks on its interests in the Middle East and to give it the means to hit regional foes, Iranian, Iraqi and Western sources said.
Reuters: "According to three #Iranian officials, two Iraqi intelligence sources and two Western intelligence sources, Iran has transferred short-range ballistic missiles to allies in Iraq over the last few months."
The Zelzal, Fateh-110 and Zolfaqar missiles in question have ranges of about 200 km to 700 km, putting Saudi Arabia’s capital Riyadh or the #Israeli city of Tel Aviv within striking distance if the weapons were deployed in southern or western #Iraq.

. @AmbJohnBolton sat down with #Russia's NSC Sec in Geneva for about 5 hours talking international security issues, #Ukraine, #Syria, #Iran. Earlier this year Patrushev was placed on #US sanctions list but said "it was no impediment for him to be meeting [American officials]"
Patrushev came to meeting w/ @AmbJohnBolton w/ a set of proposals #Moscow been elaborating for over a month. One of them allegedly included pull-back of #Iran/ian forces in #Syria in exchange for softening #sanctions on #Tehran. #US rejected the proposal.
Patrushev says himself & #Bolton failed to sign a joint communique cuz "#US wanted to include the point on "#Russia/n interference" which we didn't find acceptable.We,in turn,asked them to state that US own interference into other states' affairs is unacceptable - they refused"

IRAN'S regime has vowed to ramp up its military power and share its defence capabilities with "friendly and brotherly countries".
#Tehran's Defence Minister Amir Hatami boasted that the new version of the missile was "100 percent domestically made"."We will certainly increase our missile power every day.
Iran's missile capabilities have been a major source of tensions between the regime and the West, particularly the US.

Preparations appear to be underway for a pro-#Assad offensive on #Idlib.

12hrs of on/off air & artillery strikes vs. southeastern & western #Idlib & northern #Hama - see marks on map (original by @ETANA_Syria + my additions).

+ multiple large pro-regime convoys moving north.
@ETANA_Syria #pt: If/when any major military campaign gets underway, expect the #Assad regime (+ #Russia & #Iran-backed militias) to focus on these 2 fronts:

1) West #Idlib (Jisr al-Shughour)
2) N. #Hama/#SE #Idlib (Latamineh, Khan Sheikhoun, Kafrazita)

-> a gradual push ‘inland’ & north.
@ETANA_Syria Very good by @theIRC’s @DMiliband:

- The West must “re-assert” itself & protect civilians in NW #Syria & as a backstop, safe-routes should be opened for civilians to flee into #Turkey.

- UNSC must demand full access to S #Syria; for aid, monitoring etc.…
