Qasem Soleimani's recent visit to Al-#Bukamal city and his inspection of the Iranian militias carries several messages, mainly:
- To reaffirm the promises he made to the elements and leaders of the Iranian militias when he visited #DeirEzzor in 2017-2018 during fighting against #Daesh, where he still repeatedly gives those promises of victory and the achieving of the goals set by the #Iranians.
- a message to the Syrian Democratic Forces (#SDF) "you cannot stand against us, no matter how powerful militarily you are."
- A message to the #USA that #Soleimani can move whenever and however he likes without being targeted "a kind of provocative act".

Sobhe_no newspapers publishes some details about #Syria Pres. #Assad trip to Tehran February 25. According to report, Assad and #Soleimani left Damascus on same day with a small plane. Neither FM al-Muallem nor Syrian ambassador in #Iran were aware of the visit.
In #Iran the number of people that knew about #Assad’s visit was less than fingers of 2 hands. #Rouhani was told a day before, but he preferred not to inform anyone. His chief of staff @Dr_Vaezi even didn’t know who he is going to welcome at the door of president office. #Syria
#Assad and Soleimani left Mehrabad airport at 9 am, with a small but very strong escort directly drove to SL #Khamenei’s office in downtown Tehran, then met #Rouhani who didn’t put #Syria’s flag in meeting room to avoid raising suspicions. #Iran

New @nytimes piece captures recent wave of #Iran|ian nationalism, particularly among non-principlists (-conservatives), that seasoned analysts have been noting for some time. But there are some important caveats to consider. nytimes.com/2017/11/26/wor… 1/
Article starts w/ beheading of Mohsen Hojaji by #ISIL. Then, bizarrely, article attributes cause of nationalist wave to #Trump & #Saudi. ISIL carried out terrorist attack on #Tehran!!! It is arguably larger structural factor that triggered wave since 2014, but largely ignored! 2/
One piece of evidence given to prove #Trump & #Saudi have caused #Iran nationalist wave is popularity of #Soleimani & #Zarif. Only one problem: High favourability numbers for both predate Trump election & significantly heightened Iran-Saudi tensions iranpoll.com/publications/j… 3/
