Some important facts when reporting on #TurkishArmy operations in #Syria:
•The #YPG has ethnically cleansed several cities of their Arab inhabitants as documented by @amnesty & others
•ISIS has carried out many terroris attacks inside #Turkey including 2016 Airport, 2017 NYE
•As with every war, each side pushes its own propaganda. The #PYD/#YPG have previously used images that were proven to be either doctored or from other countries
#Turkey says main aim is to create safe zone &go after “terrorists” but #OperationPeaceSpring has other motives too
•These include economic benefits from construction projects + others in post-conflict #Syria
•The issue of refugees has become a toxic electioneering one domestically in #Turkey. There’s a belief that by reducing their number Gov popularity will increase.

[#Thread] 1/ Ok, in today's Twitter weirdness we have some big news. I have found around 2,000 Twitter bots tweeting pro-Saudi and, erm, pro Aramco propaganda. but using the #JamalKhashoggi and the #خاشقجي hashtag. Read on for more details...
2/ The weirdness began when I started seeing these strange videos promoting Saudi companies, mostly interviews with white men called 'Carl' and 'Rick' who had worked in Saudi for years, and generally found it amazing... #JamalKhashoggi
3/ Also let's not forget Noel, who presumably had no idea his interview about his experience in Saudi would be spammed around along with the name of a murdered Saudi journalist. That's some dark shit...Of course there's more.

I can now confirm the death of personal guard of #Saudi @KingSalman General Abdulaziz AlFaghem by gunfire. He is seen here with the king. He was dismissed from his post just days ago which makes his death extremely suspicious. Working on details. @nytimesworld @bbcarabicalerts
AlFegham was seen few days ago walking alone #Jeddah corniche which is not constant with his job. He doesn’t ever leave the side of the king & sleeps at the palace after the king goes to bed.
I can with high certainty say that AlFegham was dismissed this month by #MBS. Details will be coming when sources are able to find info & transmit.

Today marks 500 days since the #Saudi regime detained Loujain al-Hathloul for fighting the ban on women driving and to end male guardianship. She has been waterboarded, subjected to electric shocks and threatened with rape. We remember you, Loujain. #FreeLoujain

Here is a thread with background that I have been posting since Nov 2018 when reports first surfaced of the torture that Loujain and other detained women’s rights activists have been subjected to

[Thread] 1/ Apparently on Friday, the Twitter account of Kjetil Jansrud, a famous Norwegian skiier, was hacked. Bizarrely, the account was hacked and taken over by one Reem bint Waleed. The profile image is of Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. Ironically, Al-Waleed was reportedly
2/ the second largest individual shareholder in Twitter (see link). The account of @Kjansrud has now been restored. However, during its brief tenure, the account was nationalist in tone, and celebrated Saudi and its leadership. bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/artic…
@Kjansrud 3/ As you can see from the below tweet, the account calls to protect Saudi from its enemies. What is perhaps more bizarre, is that the biography of the account is that of Reema bint al Bandar, the relatively new Saudi Ambassador the USA....However, the name is different.

Why aren't Americans taking about the foreign influence in the US government that continues to send our men and woman to fight immoral wars?

#Trump when he campaigned for president, before he decided to let Adelson fund his campain!

Adelson was one of the biggest donors to Trumps presidential campain. Adelsons company saved 670 million dollars from the massive republican tax break. Adelson did not support the Iran deal & wanted the US embassy moved to Jerusalem.

Adelson has a direct line to #potus!

Adelson has private in-person meetings & phone conversations about once a month with #Trump!

Adelson used his access to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and cut aid to Palestinians.

Protests start again in #Egypt.

The trigger this time is a strange figure of M. Ali, an actor and owner of a construction company.

He worked for the army & started sharing stories of Sisi's corruption. 👇🏿

The Arab Spring is alive.

middleeasteye.net/news/mohamed-a…
For weeks, Mohamed Ali shared stories about the mansions he built for President Sisi and explained how the army's corruption works.

#Egypt's army controls much of the country's economy including businesses in construction farming, fishing, bakeries, livestock ...!

#ارحل_يا_سيسي
Mohamed Ali's message resonated with the public because of the of the corruption and terrible state of the economy.

For at least a week the interior ministry was on high alert.

Mohamed Ali called for protest Friday to break the fear barrier.

This comes few hours after #Hezbollah leader #Nasrallah adressed #Saudi and #UAE leaders saying that the minimal cost to defend their countries is to stop the war on #Yemen

1/ This is big news. Twitter have finally suspended the Twitter account of Saud al Qahtani @saudq1978 , and 267 accounts originating in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt primarily targeting Qatar. They also suspended six Saudi Accounts linked to Saudi-state run media
@saudq1978 2/ I say finally because Saud Al Qahtani has long been accused of manipulating Twitter, and putting people's lives in danger using Twitter. I wrote a little about how he did that here > ijoc.org/index.php/ijoc… and here marcowenjones.wordpress.com/2017/08/23/sau…
3/ The 267 accounts may be bigger players, but bear in mind thousands of accounts are routinely suspended for disseminating propaganda without any public announcement. #Qatar #Saudi #Bahrain blog.twitter.com/en_us/topics/c…

THE MIDDLE EAST | WHO’S FIGHTING WHO?

Confused the USA has been training, financing, supplying & assisting people w/ exactly the same beliefs as those who flew planes into the Twin Towers on 9/11 2001?

It is also seeking with Saudi Arabia to destroy those who are fighting them.
THE MIDDLE EAST | WHO’S FIGHTING WHO?

Opposing terrorism:

The Houthi fighters in Yemen are Shi’ite Muslims.

Their opponents in Yemen are Sunni Muslim jihadists, devotees of the Salafi movement which arose in response to Western European imperialism in the late 19th century.
THE MIDDLE EAST | WHO’S FIGHTING WHO?

The Salafi movement has its roots in the 18th century Wahhabi movement which originated in Saudi Arabia as did those who attacked the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11 2001.

Therefore you might think the USA would side w/ the Houthis.

Wrong.

The latest from @SkyNews in 🇸🇦 Saudi Arabia after attack on 2 huge oil facilities:
📍@SecPompeo arrives later
📍It’s expected he‘ll present new evidence implicating Iran
📍🇸🇦 Defence Ministry preparing to release evidence implicating Iran - significant shift in strategy [Thread]
🔴 Breaking:
📍We’re told @modgovksa will present material evidence including weapons, proving Iranian involvement
📍If 🇸🇦 does explicitly name Iran, it would would represent shift by Gulf Arab states who’ve been reluctant to name #Iran for any attacks like those on tankers /2
📍Gulf states naturally anxious that they would be on frontline of any military escalation
📍France to send investigators to help determine who was responsible
📍@EmmanuelMacron was key in trying to bring the Iranians & US to the negotiating table. /3

The #Trump admin has totally skewered #Iran policy. Maximum pressure has lacked *any* substantive strategy or realistic end-game.

Now we lack allies & credibility.

#Iran's hardliners are laughing - they calculated they could hit #Saudi with a high probability of impunity.
Following #Iran's attack on @Saudi_Aramco, @stevenacook writes:

- "Events in the Persian Gulf have demonstrated to #Iran’s leaders that they can escalate with impunity... If #Trump does not respond militarily, the U.S. should just pack up and go home."

foreignpolicy.com/2019/09/17/thi…
@Saudi_Aramco @stevenacook Few if any people like the prospect of *any* military action, but just take stock of what took place the other day in #Saudi.

If the U.S. fails to respond here, we invite more malign acts.

As one colleague just said to me: it'd be *THE* inflection point for U.S in #MiddleEast.

Thread on the attack at Abqaiq in #Saudi:
1) The attack fits the pattern of Iran signaling to the Gulf states that if it can't get its oil out, it will cause their oil exports to become collateral damage. Iran aims to force KSA to dial back support for the max pressure campaign
2) The timing and targeting of these latest attacks can't be divorced from the ongoing preparations for an Aramco IPO. Iran is trying to derail the IPO with these attacks. Its intent is to give interested investors pause, as they begin to price in Aramco's geopolitical risks
3) Anything the Iranians can do to deter the IPO would be a huge win for them on many levels. Given that the IPO is MBS' flagship idea, any damage they do here would directly threaten his legacy. At minimum, their actions will make it harder for MBS to get the valuation he wants

I'll post updates on the pending US-Saudi-Israeli strike against Iranian targets in this thread.
Yemeni Armed Forces Spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Sari has issued a warning to foreigners & company employees to leave certain areas in anticipation of potential strikes.
In other words, Donald Trump is waiting for the Khashoggi-murdering, Yemeni baby-genociding Crown Prince MBS (who is also the Saudi Defense Minister) to tell the American Commander in Chief what to do? Trump knows all this is BS. But if fits perfectly into Israel's Iran plans.
