After loose control of the villages & towns militants will increase their presence as sleeper cells around the country as we see in #Irak. Nowadays many areas still have #ISIS presence: (3)

44 பேரின் உயிரை குடித்த ஒரு சம்பவத்துக்கு இந்தியா பதிலடி குடுத்திருக்குது.

ஒரு இந்தியனா #IAF ன் சாதுரியத்தை, துல்லிய தாக்குதலை நினைத்து எனக்கு பெருமையே.

ஆனா தனிப்பட்ட மனுஷனா இதை பெருமையா நினைக்கல. என் குடும்பத்தில் ஒருத்தரை அநியாயமா கொலை செஞ்சவங்கள பழிதீர்த்த வெறிதான் கொஞ்சம்
அடங்கிருக்கு. அந்த மசூத் அசார் இறந்துட்டான்னு வரும் செய்தி தான் எனக்கு இன்னும் கொஞ்சம் சந்தோசத்தை தரும்.

ஆனா அதைவிட வேதனை ரொம்ப அதிகமாயிருக்கு. மோடி எனக்கு புடிக்கும், ஒரு அரசியல்வாதியா.

ஆனா அதே நேரம் இந்த தாக்குதல் மன்மோகன் சிங் ஆட்சியில நடந்திருந்தாலும் நான் இதே கௌரவம்
இதே பெருமை, இதே சந்தோசம் அடைஞ்சிருப்பேன். ஏன்னா நான் முதல்ல இந்தியன், அப்புறம் தான் ஹிந்து, தமிழன், இந்த மாவட்டதுக்காரன், இந்த ஜாதிக்காரன், இந்த அரசியல்கட்சி சார்பாளன் எல்லாம்.

இப்படி ஒரு தாக்குதல் நடக்கவே இல்லே, போற போக்குல ரெண்டு குண்டு கீழே விழுந்திருச்சுன்னு பாகிஸ்தான்

Note on possible #IAF #airstrike today. There is NO SUCH THING as "terror camps". These aren't concentrated like schools or colleges. These are disaggregated and dispersed AT ALL TIMES. If targets were struck they would be military targets
.2n this IAF Embraer 145 AWACS was patrolling since the early hours. Watchers know this is an unusual pattern, although it did come close to the area of the alleged strike, it patrolled South as well. The plane has since returned to base. Source: @zone5aviation #IAF #airstrike

#BREAKING: It is expected that the #Israel takes advantage of the chaos in #Syria to carry-out an airstrike against #Syrian military infrastructures probably tonight or tomorrow night. (Archive image)
#BREAKING: Following to the plans, #Israel Air Force launched an airstrike against a military facility near #Damascus minutes ago. #Syrian Pantsir-S2 and S-200 SAM sites at Mazzeh, Al-Dimas, Al-Kiswah & #GolanHeights have launched missiles at cruise missiles. Here is first video:

Absolutely extraordinary.

#Syria’s air defense systems have no way to determine “friend” from “foe.” #Russia doesn’t export that tech.

Within a complex & unpredictable environment, that raises the risk to civilian aircraft
#Israel says #Syria’s air defense fired “dozens” of anti-aircraft missiles from several batteries across the country over the space of 40-mins… *after* #IAF planes had returned to #Israel.

One took down #Russia’s IL-20.…
To me, this looks like messaging more than a truly dramatic change in reality/dynamics:

- S-300s already deployed in #Syria.

- #Israel (& US) uses encrypted radar/GPS; less vulnerable to counter-measures

- #Russia has been “jamming” for 2+ yrs.

- #Israel fires most from Med.
