1/+ #Israel showed its limitation in comparison to what #Palestinians can do: 1. No logo on al-Alam IED flag indication a unification of Palestinian groups against #Israel 2. Revealed possession of Guided anti-tank missile Kornet: Israel's nightmare in Lebanon 2006
3. #Palestinians fired 400 rockets knowing how difficult is to smuggle these into #Gaza. A #Hezbollah exchange of experience, using a small part of its capability and wait for development 4. Palestinians used a new rocket revealing more capability
#Palestine#Israel: new Rule of Engagement
Palestinian attack with a Kornet anti-tank guided missile will be shown shortly.
"Joint Ops Room: Mujahideen targetted an Israeli bus carrying soldiers in Arash Mughlasim, east of #Jabalia, that killed/ wounded those inside".
#Qassam#Hamas waited for 30 soldiers to leave the Israeli bus, fired its Kornet when only 1 soldier was in. The Message is clear. Palestinians (& Hezbollah) have learned to hit #Israel without driving it out of control, limiting the hit at the beginning
#Turkey has received Khaled al-Faysal 4 times and was agreed to invest $30 bn in the country. In addition, there are tens of Fethullah Gülen in #SaudiArabia that #Riyadh will have to "deal with" to please #Ankara.
#CIA Director didn't listen to the Saudi conversation between the consulate & MBS head office but it seems MBS was also present and his voice seems clear in the taped conversation. Saoud al-Kahtani denied MBS's presence during #Khashoggi's interrogation
.@RT_Erdogan played his strategy brilliantly by releasing for weeks & on a daily basis fresh info related to #Khashoggi, attracting offers from #USA (panicking of the idea of losing a golden blackmailed resource/MBS) & from #SaudiArabia King Salman eager 2protect his criminal son
#Turkish President can always return to revive the #Khashoggi affair by releasing new evidence, filmed or taped, if he doesn't get what he was promised.
And what he was promised?
@RT_Erdogan ended, in his speech today, MBS responsibility and joined the "official Saudi version".
President @RT_Erdogan secured his demands, to my mind, when talking to @realDonaldTrump over the phone yesterday and with King Salman twice in a week.
The only hope for justice remains the Washpost & other media if these are willing to continue putting pressure on #SaudiArabia.
President @RT_Erdogan said in his speech (NOW) said that #SaudiArabia sent 15 men to the consulate, the consulate removed the videos from the cameras (closed circuit), #Khashoggi went into the consulate and didn't come out./+
"Just after the crime, said @RT_Erdogan, a person who looks like #Khashoggi left the permisses. We'v gathered evidence & proof of the crime.We have waited for the end of the knvestigation. On the 14th of Octobre I spoke to King Salman & informed him about the available evidence".
Who will lead the Islamic World in the future? #Turkey has no choice but to tell the truth about #Khashoggi tomorrow and take the lead of the Islamic World from #SaudiArabia.
No World leader is willing to save Mohammad Bin Salman. Even if honesty and dignity have left the Whitehouse since Trump is ruling, still @realDonaldTrump is not able to save the #SaudiArabia, Crown Prince.

Faleh al-Fayyad, the head of National Security and commander of PMU met with #USA Brett McGurk and informed him that “the US list of terrorists applies outside Iraq and certainly not against an Iraqi citizen (Sheikh Kawtharani holds dual citizenship)”. ejmagnier.com/2018/10/14/for… …
Moqtada dropped Abadi and closed his ears to Sayyed Ammar al-Hakim who promoted a US ally, the head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service, as PM. Moqtada is angry with Iran but not to the point of serving Iran’s enemies. He dropped Abadi. ejmagnier.com/2018/10/14/for… …
Russian Deputy FM Mikhail Bogdanov has invited many Lebanese leaders to Moscow. This practice hasn’t been carried out by Russia for decades and indicates today its plans to stay in the Middle East, maybe replacing the US-EU role".... ejmagnier.com/2018/10/09/isr… via @ejmalrai
Although Russia possesses high-frequency VHF, tracking systems & radar capable of detecting the F-35, it is another matter to shoot it down with the S-300. Russia’s answer to this? “Let the Israelis test our system and we shall see the results”. ejmagnier.com/2018/10/09/isr…@ejmalrai
#Iraq: @AdilAbdAlMahdi was given total freedom to select his team in the future government, free from non-qualified individuals and non-corrupted candidates.
Of course, the new PM will have to take into consideration all political parties. These can present names of candidates +
If names are inadequate or considered unsuitable by @AdilAbdAlMahdi, he will ask for more names and again more names until he is satisfied. That was the deal.
The new PM @AdilAbdAlMahdi has reconciled with Nuri al-Maliki a couple of days ago. Al-Maliki was unhappy for his party (Da'wa) to lose the position of PM due to the #USA support to Haidar Abadi following his overt manifestation to "abide by US unilateral sanctions on Iran".
Listen 👂 please: #Israel can't renounce on violating #Lebanon and #Syria airspace. #Russia can't just wipe away the murder of 15 servicemen and its own reputation as a superpower @PutinRF_Eng experience similar situation with #Turkey in 2015
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
