The discussions and the maps offered by #Israel delegation to #Russia about the downing of the IL-20 was considered unacceptable & offensive by #Moscow. Moreover, the Israeli delegation complained about" #Iran's influence in #Syri, an argument the Russian have rejected.
#Russia also rejected the #Israeli claim that President Putin refused to talk to the Syrian president Assad. Israel propaganda aim to cover the deterioration of the relationship between #Moscow and #TelAviv
Remember what I said: The downing of the Russian IL-20 is all in #Israel disadvantage.
Now Israel is confused and no longer confident in what it is doing in #Syria and how to run its relationship with #Russia and #Turkey (following the Idlib deal).
Look at the photo: No burning on the white container south of the destroyed factory indicating this is not a warehouse and no ammunition in it.
No whole on the ground and only 4 traces of missiles in the destroyed factory.
Also, look at the building north of the 155m factory destoryed. This indicates that #Israel didn't want to kill workers living in the building (still standing) and targeted the place at night when the factory was closed.
The white container souyth of the destoryed factory indicates that the last of the 4 missiles hit the target at least 70m away from the still standing white container.
This is a spare part gathering factory with no explosives or ammunitions in it.
By removing Abadi, the US has lost a candidate that was not ready to balance the relationship between Tehran & Washington. That was the US biggest mistake in the last months, trying to impose Abadi (despite US denial). 3/+
Even Jihadists who became " Turkish proxies moderate rebels" are criticising the showing off of al-Nusra, aka HTS, of its flags and jihadists during yesterday's manifestation in the Turkish controlled area of northern #Syria.
Foreign Fighter the Emir Abu Abdallah al-Iraqi (from #Iraq), Emir of Sheikh Ali and western rural #Aleppo#Syria, has arrested several people who refused to rise al-Nusra (HTS) flag in #Idlib manifestation.
Mohammad al-Halbusi, with 169 votes, is the new Speaker of #Iraq. Halbusi was al-Anbar governor.
Hasan Karim and Rashid Jalil are expected to be selected in the next hour as the two vice Speakers.
A first official victory to the anti-#USA camp (pro-#Iran): Halbusi was presented and supported by al-Bina' coalition, the Maliki-Ameri (et al) group, even if the vice Speaker will be from the Sadrist (in the next hour).
So it seems #Idlib ops (divided into 3 stages) has been moved for a further date, giving me enough time to close the Iraqi news and return to #Syria, soon.
#Turkey failed to integrate al-Nusra, aka Hayyat Tahrir al-Sham, within rebels army (it might succeed at a certain point); failed to isolate al-Qaeda (Hurras el-Deen) & foreign fighters, incl Chinese Uyghur jihadists. So Erdogan turned against the #EU
Expect my article in few hours on #Iraq, #Basra and the role of #Moqtada. Also, an interview with one of the top leaders of the "Resistance" that seems to spread from the White House :-) to #Iraq via @AlraiMediaGroup and my blog.
Although any unrest between Shia in #Iraq or civil disobedience is in favour of the #USA, Shia leaders won't allow this to happen and you, dear followers, don't listen to so much rubbish around in this regard. My article will give a bit more light on ongoing events.
Just know that I know Moqtada so well, even better than himself (with all due modesty).
He rides the horse of Basra but can't control it at a certain point and doesn't have any strategic objective. More in my article.
No election of a large coalition today in #Iraq. The parliamentary session is postponed.
#USA doesn't have many allies in #Iraq. US envoy - I was told by many Kurds, Sunni and even Shia MPs - is threatening those unwilling to vote for Abadi despite any American denial of using this kind of approach.
Let's see what the Kurds will decide in a couple of weeks #Iraq
#Kurds Al-Fateh and Dawlat al-qanoon pulled out of the parliamentary session to sabotage the election.
FYI: Out of Abadi's 42 MPs, only 12 are left in his coalition. #Iraq.
#Iraq parliament may fail to decide today the largest coalition. The difference is significant: 1. Abadi and Moqtada will present a list including heads of groups and the total of MPs included 2. Ameri & Maliki will present a list with the signature of every MP supporting them/+
Abadi & Moqtada list includes tens of MPs who split and moved to Ameri/Maliki. They insist on representing the total of MPs on their list even if 30-40 left their coalition to the other side. /+
The oldest MP will head the Parliament and will decide what to do: either accept one of the two lists or send it to the court to decide.
The Kurds haven't decided, to this instant, which side to support. They are caught between their demands and the #USA pressure/+
In the next hour, the largest coalition, even if below 165, may be formed and will be resgistered tomorrow at the parliament. It all depend on one party (40 to 42) expected rto join Dawlat al-QWanoon and al-Fath (so far they have gathred 110).
I'll explain: #Kurds are not going to join any coalition tomorrow, waiting for the biggest coalition to register its name. Kurds have requests that won't be met this night. So their voices and seats won't be included.+
1 “Shi’a” means political party or group of people?
2 Shi’a ulema tended to shy away from politics or for fear of persecution?
3 Imam Hussein (not Mohammad & alter Ali) shaped the Shi’a concept of jihad or Martyrdom?
4 Is marja’ taqlid obligatory?
5 Did Welayat alFaqih an Ijtihad of Khomeini or Mohammad?
6 Al-Sistani "limiting the legal declaration of jihad only to the infallible Imam or his special deputy", although he declared Jihad in 2014
7 Greater Jihad is towards oneself in Islam, lesser jihad exists @robertgrabil
Your conclusion is somehow not solid enough and lacks further explanation to support your idea of "fighting extremism" (that seems to be also called " defensive Jihad" in Shia and Sunni doctrines). This theory has been around for ages. What are you trying to say if I may ask?
Ladies/Gent: don't bother. #USA killed many top AQ in #Idlib; is aware it is the biggest concentration & gathering of AQ; the US establishment is not fooled but fully aware of the situation. Thus, it will stand against any attack on Idlib, period.
Did you realise that if #USA bomb #Syria, the #idlib operation won't stop? The bombing would give a little boost to al-Qaeda that is on #Turkey#Russia#USA terrorist list but won't stop the end of #AQ and Jihadists control of #Idlib.
#USA officers arrived at #Damascus airport onboard an Emirates plane, met with Brdg. General Ali Mamlouk, head of Syria's National Intelligence Bureau, proposed to pull out of #Syria (incl al-Tanf) in exchange of 3 demands
Meeting took place in Mazeh last month. The 3 points: 1. Total withdrawal of #Iran from (only) south #Syria 2. #USA companies have a share in exploiting oil in northeast Syria 3. All data related to terrorists killed & arrested during the 7 years of war
"The head of #Australia/n Intel services visited #Damascus" a year ago, with #USA knowledge, asking about terrorist data but the answer is always the same: we shall not release any info unless relationship evolves", said the report.
Hezbollah, like Israel, has constructed mock Israeli villages on the Lebanese-Syrian borders for combat training to prepare for war. Sayyed Nasrallah has promised to move the battle beyond the Lebanese borders if war is imposed on Hezbollah.
If you don't support those censored because you don't know them it means censorship is winning. Your silence or lack of support means we have no chance to stand against it. I don't know @JihadiColin but, seeing his work, he deserves to be supported.
