The Continuing Regional Rapprochement of #Syria and #Assad

A thread 🪡

1/25 Image
In January I wrote about how, after over 10 years of brutal war pushed and funded by outside powers, the #MiddleEast was accepting that the #Syrian Arab Republic, led by #Assad would stay in power.…

The #USA and #NATO countries have been unhappy about things turning out this way, especially as #Syria is a close ally of #Russia. However, the Muslim states of the region are seeing that the future is cooperation, and that the SAR has won the war.

Long Thread:

China's “Pearl of Strings" Vs Bharat's “Diamond Necklace"!

Modern day wars are not to conquer Land Parcels, but to control Trade & Economies!

#China was lucky to be given a Free Hand by #UPA govt of CONgress which literally slept over Strategic Issues.

#China increased it's presence in Indian Ocean rampantly till 2014 through its Debt Trap Diplomacy to suit it's #StringsOfPearls strategy to contain Bharat's hold in Indian Ocean.

It created a ring around Bharat through strategically placed Nations.

How was it being done?

Via debt-trap policy! China lured strategically located nations around #Bharat to borrow Infra Loans. Once indebted, #China pressurized them to support its Geostrategic interests. This way, China got Control over Chittagong
(Bangladesh),Karachi &Gwadar Port(Pakistan) and...

The #King of #Oman must know that the life of the IslamicRepublic has come to an end
Any cooperation that benefits the #Ayatollah & his mercenaries will be costly for him & his country on the day after the 2023 revolution
The #IslamicRepublic doesn’t represent the people of #Iran
#پادشاه #عمان باید بداند که عمر جمهوری اسلامی به پایان رسیده است
هر گونه همکاری که به نفع #آیت_الله و مزدورانش باشد در فردای #انقلاب۱۴۰۱ برای ایشان و کشورش گران تمام خواهد شد.

Sayyida Salma bint Saeed bin Sultan (Sultan of Oman and Zanzibar) was A daughter of Al-Busaid family, who ruled the Sultanate of Oman and Zanzibar in the late eighteenth century until after the sixties of the twentieth century.
#History #oman #Zanzibar #culture #Sayyida_Salma Image
She converted from Islam to Christianity and changed her name to Amelie Roti.
Upon dividing and distributing her father's estate Sayyida Salma got the Kizimbani district and, like her other brothers, had a private house where she lived with her brother and their female servants.
However, after the death of their mother in 1859, she remained at home alone. Salma's house was in a town in Zanzibar, where there was also a young German merchant house named Rudolf Heinrich Rutte. A friendly relationship arose between them, which later developed into love,

A recent development in the saga of the Marwan 1, an IUU fishing vessel that once was part of the "Somali 7" slave-fishing operation detailed by @ian_urbina.

A few days ago, it was caught smuggling weapons and ammunition. (thread)…
On 1 Dec 22, the Marwan 1 was interdicted by the USS Lewis B. Puller in the Gulf of #Oman. Onboard were >1 million rounds of 7.62mm ammo; 25,000 rounds of 12.7mm ammo; nearly 7,000 proximity fuses for rockets; and over 2,100 kg of RPG propellant. ImageImageImage
The Marwan 1 had been docked in Bandar Abbas, #Iran (27°08'49.3"N // 56°12'11.8"E) on 25 Nov 22 (sat imagery analysis courtesy of @IJM). Bandar Abbas has emerged as the preeminent loading point for weapons consignments destined for the #Houthis. Image

🚩A month ago, the truce expired in #Yemen due to inacceptable last-minute Houthi demands to have the salaries of members of their “government” and even “armed forces” be paid through oil revenues.

A thread 🧵
The truce lasted six-months and helped ease the humanitarian crisis in the country. Shipments of fuel increased, regular flights to and from Sana’a reopened Image
The Houthi on the other hand did not uphold their end of the bargain, failing to reopen roads to the city of #Taiz. A recent deadly road accident in the dangerous mountain roads near the city shows the price of such failure. ImageImageImage

#PallonjiMistry, the elusive but powerful phantom of Bombay House…

By @KatyaNaidu Image
Very little is known about #PallonjiMistry who was the chairman emeritus of the Shapoorji Pallonji group – but has been crowned one of the Moghuls of real estate. The unlisted company had built every iconic building of South Mumbai – be it the Taj Colaba or the Oberoi Hotel. Image
Abroad, the company built the places of #Oman’s king and the President of Ghana. In fact, their ability to build seems to be how they ended up as one of the biggest shareholders of the #TataGroup.

കഴിഞ്ഞ ദിവസം ലോക ചരക്ക് ഗതാഗതം മാറ്റി മറിക്കുന്ന ഒരു സംഭവം ഉണ്ടായിട്ടുണ്ട്.

INSTC എന്ന ഇന്റർനാഷണൽ നോർത്ത് സൗത്ത് ട്രാൻസ്‌പോർട്ട് കോറിഡോറിൽ ആദ്യമായി ഒരു ട്രയൽ ചരക്ക് നീക്കം തുടങ്ങി.

റഷ്യയിലെ സെയിന്റ് പീറ്റേഴ്‌സിൽ നിന്നും 40 ടണ് ചരക്കുമായി ഒരു കപ്പൽ കാസ്പിയൻ 1
കടലിലിലെ astrakhan തുറമുഖം ലക്ഷ്യമാക്കി നീങ്ങി തുടങ്ങി.
അവിടെ നിന്നും ആ ചരക്ക് കാസ്പിയൻ കടലിലെ ഇറാനിയൻ തുറമുഖം ആയ Anzali യിൽ എത്തും.

പിന്നിട്ട് ആ ചരക്കുകൾ റോഡ് മാർഗ്ഗം ഇറാനിലൂടെ, ഇറാന്റെ തന്നെ, പേർഷ്യൻ ഗൾഫിലെ തുറമുഖം ആയ ബന്ദർ അബ്ബാസ്സിൽ വന്നു ചേരും.

ബന്ദർ അബ്ബാസ് തുറമുഖത് 2
നിന്നും കപ്പലിൽ കയറുന്ന ചരക്ക് ഇന്ത്യൻ തുറമുഖം ആയ നവസേവ എന്ന ലക്ഷ്യ സ്ഥാനത്ത് എത്തും.
ഈ റൂട്ടിൽ വരുമ്പോൾ പരമ്പരാഗത സൂയസ് കനാൽ റൂട്ടിൽ എടുക്കുന്ന 40 ദിവസം എന്നത് 20 ദിവസം ആയി ചുരുങ്ങും.
അതിന് അനുസരിച്ച് ചരക്കു നീക്ക ചിലവും കുറയും.
