As @azelin just posted, a previously unknown jihâdist group - Humât al-Tawhîd - has claimed killing King Salmân b. 'Abd al-'Azîz's bodyguard 'Abd al-'Azîz al-Fagham. #KSA
@azelin The group first appeared in early September, their first statement "Fight the Allies of Satan" is dated 02 Muharram 1441. The group has since released two short video clips and a number of short infographics detailing its belief system.
@azelin The group is clearly salafî-jihâdî, rather certainly not linked to #IS, and probably also independent of #AQ. The guidelines for terrorist operations announced by the group look stricter than those of either before mentioned movements.

A #Tehran insider says the strategy is to revive #Iran nuclear program until the West returns to #JCPOA or creates a new deal. Until that happens, the Islamic Republic is simultaneously using a few other ingredients to its strategy. /1
Threat of retaliation against immediate neighbors | #Gulf states like #KSA #UAE #Kuwait #Bahrain have received ample warnings they will be hit through missiles or sabotage if #Iran is attacked directly or if sanctions are prolonged.
#Iran is appeasing #Turkey through concessions in #Syria #Iraq & on #Kurds. #Pakistan has received signals #Balochistan/#Karachi are targets if #Islamabad sides with #USA or with #Gulf states. (Apr attack, 14 soldiers hit, deep attack; sea-borne hit on #Gwadar)

In #Pakistan, Govt & pundits shouldn't make too much of #Trump appearance at #HowdyModi. It's a circus for #Indian PM, endorsing @realDonaldTrump for a 2nd term while the pro-#India lobby in DC works with anti-#Trump base, & hoping to keep him away from #Kashmir if possible @AQpk
PM #Modi has this in mind while trying to appease #Trump at #HowdyModi: #American restrictions on I.T. visa abuse by #Indian immigrants (aka 'Skilled Immig'), ending #India oil imports from #Iran, jeopardizing #Indian interests in #Afghanistan, & Trump rehabilitating #Pakistan
#Trump turning the screws on #India on trade tariffs, forcing end to oil import from #Iran & forcing India to buy from #USA/#KSA/#GCC, talking to #Pakistan on #Afghanistan, & restricting immigration from India, are things that worry #NewDelhi deeply. Watching #ImranKhan in....

JUST IN: “The #Iran|ian regime is waging a deliberate campaign to destabilize the #MiddleEast” per @EsperDoD, w/@thejointstaff Chairman Gen Joseph Dunford

“All indications are #Iran was responsible for the attack” on #Saudi oil facilities
“The weapon used in the attack were Iranian produced and were not launched from #Yemen as initially claimed” per @EsperDoD
“To prevent further escalation, #SaudiArabia requested int’l support“ Per @EsperDoD “The president has approved deployment of US Forces...primarily focused on air and missile defense. We will also work to accelerate the delivery of military equipment”

17 points of impact. No Drones or missiles were detected/intercepted. Saudis & Americans still at loss as to where the attack was launched from.
#KSA seriously needs to shop elsewhere & replace the Patriot or reinforce it with a web of radar operated AA guns like the Oerlikon.
A source familiar with #Aramco situation told us earlier today that it was a “swarm attack”, a mix of > 20 drones and missiles, at least half of which were "suicide" drones.
#USA & #KSA, he said, are 'certain' that attack was launched from #Iraq but 'smoking gun still missing'
They are also 'fairly certain' that #IRGC was behind the operation because, even though the missiles used were identical to those of the #Houthis, an inspection of the debris found in the desert revealed a 'couple of new updates' and a 'distinctly better craftsmanship'

Houthi fighters in Yemen have claimed two drone attacks on Saudi #Aramco factories in Abqaiq and Khurais provinces which sparked large fires. Saudi interior ministry spokesman says the fires in the state oil company have been brought under control
Abqaiq plays a pivotal role in Aramco's day-to-day operations. #Saudi Aramco says #Abqaiq is the company's largest oil processing facility and the largest crude oil stabilization plant in the world saudiaramco.com/en/creating-va…
#SaudiArabia is shutting down about half of its #oil output after apparently coordinated drone strikes hit facilities in what #Yemen’s Houthi rebels described as one of their largest-ever attacks inside the kingdom according to @WSJ & @Reuters wsj.com/articles/drone…

#ArabieSaoudite Les installations d'#Aramco sont en feu. L'incendie s'est déclenché à Abqaïq, un des principaux gisements pétroliers dans la province orientale d'ach-Charqiya
La cause est, pour l'instant, inconnue

The #UAE diplomacy with #NewDelhi is a step forward in helping end #India-#Iran strategic partnership. If successful, this will help #Pakistan interests that suffered due to Indian-Iranian partnership in #Afghanistan & #Balochistan. /1

@AQpk
The #UAE is likely hoping to permanently end #India's reliance on #Iran oil imports, and shift its oil contracts to Arab Gulf suppliers. #AbuDhabi is likely also interested in seeing India end its role in #Chabahar port, which has also created problems for #Pakistan and #China.
While helping #Pakistan economically & diplomatically (quiet diplomacy to bring the #US & #Islamabad closer), the #UAE has walked a fine balance to court #India in the hope of encouraging an #Indian shift away from #Iran.

1. While many foreign observers praised @Rob_Malley's op-ed in @nytimes, anyone who KNOWS Yemen will find it one-sided. The op-ed does a gross disservice to #Yemen despite good intentions.

At times I thought the op-ed was either naive or deliberately misleading. Here's why:
2. @Rob_Malley gives a narrow view of #Yemen's conflict and re-hashes #Houthis' narrative when he limits the conflict as "#KSA vs. Houthi". He is not inaccurate per se but deliberately selective, ignoring Houthis' overthrow of UN-backed government as a root cause of conflict.
3. For a Conflict group to overlook the root cause of the conflict is to ignore the ABC of policy analysis. #Houthis wanted a monopoly of power in #Yemen and chose violence to do it, committing war crimes during the five past years. Mr.Malley doesn't show opposition against them.

Been Analyzing #Turkey #Geopolitical MSM news daily-hourly. Four countries have been leading the news with this same line on #Turkey: #USA #Israel #Saudis #Egypt. Now that brings me to #EastMedDrill escalations- involving the same quatro.
Another Simplified Question to Ask: How’s it that #USA media expresses so much “alarm” on #Turkey’s “Democratic” Status, While, gives complete consent & support 2 #SaudiArabia kingdom’s Sharia Gov System?Answer this simple question & you’ll be on the right path in political truth

Robust ties with #Qatar are part of #Pakistan's overall close strategic relationship with #Gulf/#GCC states. The internal Gulf crisis had little impact on #Islamabad's relations with Gulf states, and there's no juggling act, unlike the common perception. Ties are not zero-sum.
#Qatar's pledge to invest up to $22B in #Pakistan in coming years, on the heels of multibillion-dollar #KSA/#UAE/#Kuwait investments confirms #Gulf is of paramount economic/political/security importance for Pak, and #Islamabad is rightly involved in Gulf security arrangements.

I have been warning you about the impact of a Trump presidency for Iran, Saudi Arabia, and...ALL OF US...since waaaaaaaay before the election.
.@7awliet makes an excellent point here.

The Saudi Arabia - Iran proxy war transcends US presidential administrations, and has increasingly escalated post-2011 (case in point: Bahrain’s protests and the KSA response).

Been searching all MSM for any meaningful analysis on #Turkey #Erdogan initiated recent #Aid call to #KSA #SaudiArabia. Still zilch. With Turkey complying with #US #Iran sanctions, econ crises & being left out cold on #Khashoggi game: Was it a first attempt for reconciliation??!
As some of you may remember I covered the “Real” #Khashoggi #Turkey Case (concoction) for 2 months via the following Pinned Thread (See Screenshot Below).
One of the things experience has taught me in geopolitics: Pay little to no attention to what #MSM making big headline noise about. Instead, go after “things” they cover little (Via page B8 ;-) or do not cover.

*Thread* ( 5 part) on “Canadian Genocide” declaration by Trudeau

1. Every Canadian 🇨🇦 has been diminished by this false accusation
(Golfing partner said his dad served WW2 as a 17 yr - nearly lost his life w’d be devastated to know Canada been wrongfully labelled GENOCIDAL)
2. China 🇨🇳
Has already won the upper hand on Trudeau’s #ObstructionOfJustice TWICE #SNCLavalin #MarkNorman

Now China will treat us worse as we are a genocidal nation and China never declared so.
#FakeFeminist has worsened lives of Canadians in jail and trade.
3. Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦
Trudeau snidely tweeted about “human rights” related to a domestic criminal manner for a Saudi citizen.

Diplomatic war. No ambassador
World ignored Canada.
Now KSA will have upper hand due to our admitted Genocide

We have no moral authority on #KSA

1. #Houthis of #Yemen raised funds for #Hezbollah during the month of #Ramadan

It's not the first time. Yet many found the news surprising.

#Houthis' ties to #Hezbollah & #Iran are undeniable. This thread will clarify some misconceptions about this clandestine alliance.
2. First, let's begin with Houthi's recent fundraiser in #Yemen to support #Hezbollah.

Source for this? #Houthis OFFICIAL news agency.

The fundraiser started this month of Ramadan & is ongoing. Millions of Yemeni Riyals were collected for Hezbollah & Houthis' war in Yemen;
3.#Houthis used their Radio station to mobilize this multi-phase initiative to support the war. They managed to raise over 120 000 in one month. But they deemed the Hezbollah fundraiser "the most important stage of the fundraiser & a token of gratitude for #Hezbollah's help"
