December 2, 2019

Iraq’s Hashd Shaabi paramilitary force said that Isil Takfiri group is exploiting the unrest taking place in the country to carry out attacks in several areas.

In a statement, Hashd Shaabi, also known as Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), said that 6 fighters of its fighters were martyred and 17 others were injured as they confronted ISIL attacks.

“Several areas which were cleansed earlier have been subjected to repeated attacks by ISIL terrorists who have been trying to exploit the unrest and deteriorated security situation in the country,” the Hashd said in a statement.

“Fierce battle took place yesterday in Diyala province, leading to the martyrdom of six of our heroes and the injury of 17 others including the Brigade 20 commander,” the statement added.

Terrorists have been trying to infiltrate into Imam Weis in Diyala during the previous days, the statement noted.

It warned, meanwhile, that several movements of ISIL operatives have been spotted in Salahuddine, Anbar, Kirkuk and Baghdad surroundings in a bid to take control of these areas.

الغربُ المسعور يطبّقُ وصية عبد العزيز!

د. وفيق إبراهيم

تتجاهل الدول الغربية أن العدوان السعودي الاماراتي المغطى اميركياً على اليمن، هو سبب القصف الذي تتعرّض له الاهداف العسكرية والاقتصادية في السعودية.

فترهنُ الاحداث المتتابعة في الخليج لمصلحة توجيه الاتهام وحصره بإيران لأنها دولة محورية تعادي النفوذ الاميركي والكيان الإسرائيلي ولها شبكة تحالفات في معظم دول المنطقة، لذلك يتغاضى الأميركيون عن اعلان دولة صنعاء مسؤوليتها عن قصف مصفاتي بقيق وخريص مركزين المسؤولية الحصرية لإيران، وهذه تتمة لمزاعم غربية وسعودية تعتبر منذ عقد تقريباً ان انصار الله اليمنيين والحشد الشعبي العراقي وحزب الله اللبناني هم ميليشيات إيرانية وسط تجاهل عالمي للحرب اليمنية حرصاً من الدول الكبرى على مصالحها مع السعودية اكبر مصدر نفطي في العالم.

هناك اذاً محاولات غربية أميركية لاستثمار قصف المصفاتين السعوديتين بخطة تقضي بحماية المراكز المحلية للنفوذ الغربي في منطقة الخليج وجوارها.

لكن المدهش أن الخطة الغربية تبدو وكأنها تطبيق لنصيحة عبد العزيز آل سعود لأولاده التي دعاهم فيها لإضعاف دائم لليمن والعراق.

Image result for ‫وصية عبد العزيز اليمن‬‎

هذا الغرب الاميركي الاوروبي المتجاهل مأساة اليمن يركز على ثلاث نقاط: تفتيت العراق الى دول مستقلة أو كانتونات، شرذمة اليمن الى دول او كانتونات متصارعة، اما النقطة الثالثة التي تبدأ بتطبيقها فتركز على منع أي تقارب سوري عراقي يؤدي الى فتح الحدود بينهما، وهذه من المحرمات الكبرى.

لكن تطبيق هذه الآليات يحتاج الى شعار كبير، هو الخطر الإيراني ومعادلة جامعة هي أمن الملاحة في الخليج والبحر الاحمر، فهذا كافٍ لتجميع المهتمين بثروات النفط والغاز على المستوى العالمي ومعهم انظمة دول النفط وبعض تحالفاتها العربية، لذلك سارعت كل من السعودية والإمارات الى اعلان انضمامها الى تحالف أمن الملاحة في الخليج في حركة تحشيد سياسية هدفها إضفاء شرعية خليجية على حلف غربي لا يزال يعمل لإعادة ترسيخ نتائج الحرب العالمية الثانية للاستحواذ الدائم على ما وفرت له من مغانم اقتصادية واستراتيجية.

ضمن هذه المعطيات تبدو الحرب السعودية على اليمن مرشحة للاستمرار بالوتيرة نفسها لأسباب تتعلق بتبرير العودة الغربية الى المنطقة، كما ان استعداء إيران على مستوى حوربة لا تؤدي الى حرب مطلوب ايضاً لاستمرار تمرير الذريعة الغربية التي تزعم انها تدافع عن المنطقة من هذا الخطر.

أين الخطر اذاً؟ فمنطقة الخليج مزروعة بالقواعد الاميركية وتخضع لسياسات البيت الابيض على نظام السمع والطاعة من دون أي تذمر؟ هذا الجديد يذهب نحو إيلاء العراق أهمية قصوى على اساس منعه من تعزيز وحدته الداخلية، ما يبقيه ضعيفاً واهناً تتحارب مناطقه الداخلية فتعطل حركته الخارجية، وهذه من نصائح المؤسس عبد العزيز.

العراق اذاً هو محور الحركة الغربية الحالية التي تنفذها أربع جهات: الاميركيون الذين يمتلكون عشر قواعد عسكرية فيه، وبعض القوى الداخلية المستفيدة من إضعاف العراق في كردستان والوسط وبعض المناطق الأخرى في الجنوب، و إسرائيل التي بدأت بتنظيم قصف متدرج بطائرات مسيرة على خط حدوده مع سورية.

لجهة الطرف الرابع فهو السعودية التي تعمل على تطوير تدخلها السياسي في العراق الى استهدافات نوعية عسكرية بتغطية أميركية إسرائيلية. وهذا مؤكد من خلال قصف جوي استهدف منذ يومين بعض انحاء محافظة الأنبار وتبين انه سعودي بذريعة استئصال ارهاب موجود في هذه النواحي، علماً ان العراق كان أعلن منذ يومين ايضاً عن فتح نقطة عبور مع السعودية عبر حدوده في الأنبار.

ان التبرير السعودي لهذا القصف غير منطقي. ويقول إن جهات إرهابية إيرانية تسللت الى الأنبار وقصفت المصفاتين السعوديتين من اراضيه.

هذه واحدة من الروايات السعودية الى جانب مزاعم ثانية تدّعي ان الرياض بصدد تحديد دقيق لمواقع القصف في الشمال، بما يشمل إيران ايضاً وربما الكويت.

العراق اذاً في جهاته الحدودية معرض لاستهدافات سعودية وإسرائيلية بأشكال مختلفة، لكن ردود فعله ممنوعة بسبب العرقلة الأميركية التي تسيطر على جزء من قواه الداخلية السياسية وتستعملها لمنع انتاج عراق قويّ، لذلك يعتبر الاميركيون ان منع التنسيق بين سورية والعراق مهمة استراتيجية يؤدي تحقيقها الى استمرار النفوذ الأميركي الكامل على المشرق العربي. وهذا ما يفسّر القصف المجهول تارة والأميركي طوراً والاسرائيلي في معظم الاحيان والسعودي المستجد على مناطق الحدود السورية العراقية، فخطورة هذا التنسيق استراتيجية وليست سياسية آنية، لأن ولادة معادلة من البحر المتوسط حتى مياه الخليج تجاور تركيا وإيران والخليج لهي من الكبائر التي لا يتحمّلها الجيوبوليتيك الاميركي، هذا بالاضافة الى انها تشكل بديلاً للانهيار المصري وبوسعها إعادة انتاج نظام عربي وازن يعيد للمنطقة شيئاً كبيراً من توازنها المسحوق اميركياً واسرائيلياً، ألم يعلن الرئيس المصري السيسي في مؤتمر علني منذ اسبوع فقط، ان الشرق لا يساوي شيئاً من دون سورية متهماً جهات عربية ودولية بمحاولة تفجيرها.

إن هذه المعطيات تكشف أن الحروب على اليمن والعراق وسورية وتحريم التنسيق بينهما، هي الاهداف الاساسية للعودة الغربية الى منطقة الشرق الاوسط وبحارها، فتحقيق هذه الأهداف يكفي لتحديد نتائج الحرب العالمية الثانية التي أخضعت الشرق بكامله لهيمنة غربية سجنته في كهوف التخلف.

فهل هذا ممكن وقابل للتجدد؟

صمود سورية وإصرار العراق على الخروج من بقايا السجن الاميركي وإدراك صواريخ اليمن لعمق معادلة الغرب في السعودية وانتقال إيران الى مستوى دول القرار، هي عوامل تؤكد ان الحرب العالمية الثانية ولت الى غير رجعة، مقابل تشكل منطقة جديدة يعمل اهلها على تحريرها من بقايا المستعمرين ومعهم الكيان الاسرائيلي وحلفاؤهم من عرب الانحطاط.

Iraq’s Hashd announces formation of Air Force

The Iraqi Hashd, Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), said it is now forming its own ‘Air Force’ in order to respond to hostile air strikes.

The group’s deputy chief, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandes, said he had ordered to establish the air force directorate for the Hashd; naming Salah Mahdi Hantoush as its caretaker.

This comes a few weeks after suspicious airstrikes targeted the group’s positions in Baghdad and other provinces of Iraq.

A senior  US official said that Israel conducted “several strikes in recent days” in Iraq, including the July 19 attack north of Baghdad which targeted a base allegedly used by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps “to transfer weapons to Syria”.

The claims come after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted at his country’s involvement in the latest attacks on ammunition depots in Iraq belonging to the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) composed of mostly Shia Muslim groups.

The Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council (EC) Mohsen Rezaei said on Sunday that both Iraq and Syria would respond to the latest Israeli attacks on their soil.

“Measures that Israel and America are jointly implementing in Syria and Iraq are against the international rules. And Syrian and Iraqi defenders will soon respond to them,” Rezaie told ILNA on Sunday on the sideline of an event in Qazvin province.

Syria, Iraq To Reopen Strategic Border Crossing Within Few Days

The strategic al-Qa’im border crossing between Syria and Iraq will be reopened on September 7 after being closed for more than five years.

According to Sputnik, the security committee in Deir Ezzor and the governorate’s governor had inspected the crossing to make sure that all the preparations are completed ahead of the reopening.

“The [al-Qa’im] is fully ready to receive travelers,” a Syrian official told Sputnik, confirming that the crossing will be reopened on September 7.

The al-Qa’im crossing was set to be reopened on September 1. However, the ongoing renovation on the Iraqi side of the crossing delayed the reopening.

Iraqi government forces liberated the eastern part of Qa’im in November 2017. Within a few days, the Syrian military liberated the western part of the crossing, near the city of al-Bukamal.

The reopening of the al-Qa’im crossing is expected to boost the trade between Syria and Iraq, which would have a positive impact on the economic situation in both countries.

Hezbollah Retaliates Netanyahu’s Aggression Killing and Injuring a Number of IDF Terrorists

from Al Mayadeen: Hezbollah Retaliates Netanyahu Aggression

‘The Group of the Martyrs Zbieb and Dhaher managed to destroy a military vehicle at the road of Ivivim colony killing and injuring who’s inside it.’ This was the statement by Hezbollah minutes ago.

Hezbollah has vowed to retaliate the unprovoked cowardly multiple aggressions by Israel against an apartment used by Hezbollah members in the village of Aqraba in Damascus countrysidekilling two members of the Hezb in their dorms.

At the same time, Netanyahu forces sent two suicide drones to the Southern Beirut residential neighborhood, the main base for Hezbollah supporters in the Lebanese capital.

This operation Hezbollah stated was carried out by the ‘Group of the martyrs Hassan Zbieb and Yassir Dhaher’ referring to the two martyrs killed in the attack on Aqraba, the Hezb’s reference means this is the retaliation against the aggression against Aqraba only.

Chief of Hezbollah Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah vowed to retaliate to both attacks separately, the two drones made Hezb bypass a previous understanding with the Lebanese government not to target Israeli drones over Lebanon, now the resistance movement will be targeting any intruding drones to set the rules of engagement in this regards.

Netanyahu forces are now retaliating against the plants on the Lebanese borders firing flaming bombs which are causing sporadic fires in the area.

Netanyahu carried out the multiple attacks against Syria, Lebanon and also against Iraqi PMUs, all of them engaged in fighting Al-Qaeda and its affiliates Nusra Front and ISIS in both Syria and Iraq, his motives were to gain more votes among the radical foreign imported settlers in occupied Palestine in the coming elections on 17th of current September. Netanyahu, who likes to call himself ‘Mr. Security’ promising his imported foreign settlers security, has instead brought them complete insecurity on the borders and deep inside occupied Palestine.

Al-Mayadeen further added from its exclusive sources: The target was a troop transporting vehicle, Hezb fighters allowed the ambulance to evacuate the killed and injured IDF members, and the operation was carried at the height of the Israeli ‘intelligence’ observation.

Will Bibi’s War Become America’s War?

Image result for Will Bibi’s War Become America’s War?
August 29, 2019

Patrick J. BUCHANAN

President Donald Trump, who canceled a missile strike on Iran, after the shoot-down of a U.S. Predator drone, to avoid killing Iranians, may not want a U.S. war with Iran. But the same cannot be said of Bibi Netanyahu.

Saturday, Israel launched a night attack on a village south of Damascus to abort what Israel claims was a plot by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force to fly “killer drones” into Israel, an act of war.

Sunday, two Israeli drones crashed outside the media offices of Hezbollah in Beirut. Israel then attacked a base camp of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command in north Lebanon.

Monday, Israel admitted to a strike on Iranian-backed militias of the Popular Mobilization Forces in Iraq. And Israel does not deny responsibility for last month’s attacks on munitions dumps and bases of pro-Iran militias in Iraq.

Israel has also confirmed that, during Syria’s civil war, it conducted hundreds of strikes against pro-Iranian militias and ammunition depots to prevent the transfer of missiles to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Understandably, Israel’s weekend actions have brought threats of retaliation. Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has warned of vengeance for the death of his people in the Syria strike.

Quds Force General Qassem Soleimani reportedly tweeted from Tehran, “These insane operations will be the last struggles of the Zionist regime.” Lebanese President Michel Aoun called the alleged Israeli drone attack on Beirut a “declaration of war.”

Last Friday, in the 71st week of the “Great March of Return” protests on Gaza’s border, 50 Palestinians were wounded by Israeli live fire. In 16 months, 200 have died from gunshots, with thousands wounded.

America’s reaction to Israel’s weekend attacks? Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called Netanyahu to assure him of U.S. support of Israel’s actions. Some Iraqi leaders are now calling for the expulsion of Americans.

Why is Netanyahu now admitting to Israel’s role in the strikes in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq? Why has he begun threatening Iran itself and even the Houthi rebels in Yemen?

Because this longest-serving prime minister in Israeli history, having surpassed David Ben-Gurion, is in the battle of his life, with elections just three weeks off. And if Netanyahu falls short — or fails to put together a coalition after winning, as he failed earlier this year — his career would be over, and he could be facing prosecution for corruption.

Netanyahu has a compelling motive for widening the war against Israel’s main enemy, its allies and its proxies and taking credit for military strikes.

But America has a stake in what Israel is doing as well.

We are not simply observers. For if Hezbollah retaliates against Israel or Iranian-backed militias in Syria retaliate against Israel — or against us for enabling Israel — a new war could erupt, and there would be a clamor for deeper American intervention.

Yet, Americans have no desire for a new war, which could cost Trump the presidency, as the war in Iraq cost the Republican Party the Congress in 2006 and the White House in 2008.

The United States has taken pains to avoid a military clash with Iran for compelling reasons. With only 5,000 troops left in Iraq, U.S. forces are massively outmanned by an estimated 150,000 fighters of the pro-Iran Popular Mobilization Forces, which played a critical role in preventing ISIS from reaching Baghdad during the days of the caliphate.

And, for good reason, the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, with its crew of 5,600, which Trump sent to deter Iran, has yet to enter the Strait of Hormuz or the Persian Gulf but remains in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Oman, and, at times, some 600 nautical miles away from Iran.

Why is this mighty warship keeping its distance?

We don’t want a confrontation in the Gulf, and, as ex-Admiral James Stavridis, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, says:

“Anytime a carrier moves close to shore, and especially into confined waters, the danger to the ship goes up significantly. … It becomes vulnerable to diesel submarines, shore-launched cruise missiles and swarming attacks by small boats armed with missiles.”

Which is a pretty good description of the coastal defenses and naval forces of Iran.

Netanyahu’s widening of Israel’s war with Iran and its proxies into Lebanon and Iraq — and perhaps beyond — and his acknowledgement of that wider war raise questions for both of us.

Israel today has on and near her borders hostile populations in Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, Iran and Iraq. Tens of millions of Muslims see her as an enemy to be expelled from the region.

While there is a cold peace with Egypt and Jordan, the Saudis and Gulf Arabs are temporary allies as long as the foe is Iran.

Is this pervasive enmity sustainable?

As for America, have we ceded to Netanyahu something no nation should ever cede to another, even an ally: the right to take our country into a war of their choosing but not of ours?

Israel launched the last five attacks on the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) from bases in the US-occupied areas in northwestern Syria, an Iraqi intelligence source told the Middle East Eye on August 27.

The intelligence source added that Israeli drones were used in the attacks, claiming that Saudi Arabia is financing such operations.

“The drone attacks were launched from SDF [US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces] areas with the financing and backing of the Saudis,” the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told the Middle East Eye.

Saudi Minister of State for Gulf Affairs Thamer al-Sabhan offered the SDF funds in return for their bases being used as a launchpad for the strikes, according to the source. Al-Sabhan visitied the SDF-held areas last June.

In the most recent attack, a commander of the PMU was assassinated in a drone strike near the al-Qa’im crossing on the border with Syria.

هل اقتربت الحربُ في الخليج؟

أغسطس 27, 2019

د. وفيق إبراهيم

هناك معادلتان يعمل عليهما الأميركيون في الخليج.

الاولى حصار إيران اقتصادياً الى حدود خنقها وتفجير الدولة فيها، والثانية توتير الأوضاع في بحار الخليج وميادينه وصولاً الى العراق وسورية ولبنان انما من دون إدراك الحرب المباشرة.

في المقابل تجاهد إيران وبكبرياء لتحقيق صمود اقتصادي على قاعدة الاستناد على تماسك اجتماعي إيراني عالي المستوى يفاجئ أخصامها، بالاضافة الى امكاناتها على مساحة الدولة التي تزيد عن مليون وسبعمئة الف كيلومتر مربع وتحالفاتها الاقليمية الوازنة.

هذه هي الشروط التي يتجابه فيها الإيرانيون والأميركيون، لكن الجديد هو اختراق أميركي جديد لشروط هذا الصراع ويتعلق باستخدام «إسرائيل» آلية جديدة جرى تكليفها بإرباك تحالفات إيران في العراق وسورية ولبنان.

وبشكل تلقائي اتخذ أنصار الله اليمنيون قراراً موازياً بتشديد دورهم في إرباك السعودية داخلياً من جهة وعلاقتها بالنظام الاقتصادي الغربي من جهة ثانية، مرسلين صواريخهم وطائراتهم المسيّرة الى أهداف اقتصادية وعسكرية نفطية على نقاط استراتيجية منتقاة بعناية من المساحة السعودية، بشكل يصيب إطلالتي السعودية على الخليج من ناحية والبحر الأحمر من ناحية ثانية.

لذلك يخدم هذا الدور اليمني المتصاعد اليمن اولاً الذي يتعرّض لأعنف عدوان خليجي غربي إسرائيلي منذ خمس سنوات، معلناً في الوقت نفسه انه جزء من حلف المقاومة على مستوى الإقليم.

ضمن هذه المعادلات تخترق أميركا مدى الصراع بإقحام «إسرائيل» الأمر الذي ينقل الكباش الإيراني الأميركي الى مستوى جديد، دافعاً قوى المقاومة في البلدان المستهدفة الى تبني قرارات معادلة لهذا الخرق الخطير.

لجهة الحشد الشعبي العراقي المستهدَف منذ أسبوعين تقريباً بهجمات من طائرات مسيرة على مخازنه ومواقعه في أنحاء مختلفة من العراق، فيعتبر ان الهجمات عليه ما كان يمكن أن تتم لولاً التنسيق الأميركي الإسرائيلي وهذا يجعله يفرّق بين صاحب القرار بمهاجمته وهو الأميركي والمُنفذ الإسرائيلي، فهما متعاونان لإرباك الحشد وتأزيم وضعه الداخلي في العراق على قاعدة أنه لا تجوز له المشاركة في حروب إقليمية. والقصد هنا هو دعم إيران في حربها مع الأميركيين وتجاهل الاحتلال الأميركي للعراق المستمر منذ 2003 والذي ينشر عشرة آلاف جندي أميركي في عشر قواعد في العراق متلاعباً بوحدته الداخلية وثرواته وأدواره.

على المستوى نفسه يرتفع معدل الغارات الجوية الإسرائيلية على سورية في محاولة واضحة تبدو وكأن هدفها سحب اهتمام الجيش العربي السوري من منطقة إدلب وشرقي الفرات نحو التحسب من الخطر الإسرائيلي المباغت.

وهذا يشمل ايضاً دور حزب الله في سورية الذي يصرّ الأميركيون والإسرائيليون على سحبه من سورية مع ما يزعمون انه قوات إيرانية.

لذلك يضغط الأميركيون لإعادة نصب الدور التركي على عداء كبير مع سورية وحزب الله وإيران.

وللمزيد من تقليص الدور الاقليمي لحزب الله اخترقت طائرات مسيّرة إسرائيلية الضاحية الجنوبية للعاصمة اللبنانية بيروت على علو منخفض ولم تتمكّن من تنفيذ مهامها لأسباب تقنية فسقطت منها اثنتان احداهما سليمة.

وهذا اختراق إسرائيلي لتوازن القوى العسكري المرسوم مع حزب الله منذ 2006 تاريخ الهزيمة الإسرائيلية لآخر عدوان بري إسرائيلي على لبنان.

هنا يكتشف المراقبون ان «إسرائيل» تضع حزب الله امام احتمالين: ان يرد على الاختراق بصليات صاروخية على أهداف استراتيجية إسرائيلية في فلسطين المحتلة، وهذا خيار له بعدان: داخلي يؤدي الى إعادة تجميع القوى اللبنانية المحسوبة على السعودية والأميركيين في اطار المطالبة بحصرية السلاح مع الدولة اللبنانية والحياد عن معارك الإقليم، والثاني معنوي وهو ان لا يرد حزب الله فيستجلب المزيد من الاعتداءات الإسرائيلية المشابهة، فيخسر صدقيته مع جمهوره دافعاً الإسرائيليين انفسهم الى عدم تصديق تهديدات حزب الله التي تثير عادة رعب الإسرائيليين المدنيين والعسكريين ولا تزال.

هذا السياق، يؤكد الخطة الأميركية التي تريد عزل إيران عن تحالفاتها للمزيد من الخنق الأميركي لها، الامر الذي يدفع نحو رفع مرتبة الصراع من درجة «شديد التوتر الى بداية الحرب الفعلية بأشكال متنوّعة. فليس معقولاً ان يكتفي بلد ما بمراقبة بلد يحاول قتله بقطع أنفاسه، وليس مقبولاً صمت العراق ولبنان الرسميين عن نشر الأميركيين للارهاب الإسرائيلي الجوي على مدنهما ودساكرهما.

لكن لحزب الله توجهات أخرى ارسلها بخطاب «مستعجل»، اكد فيه امين عام حزب الله السيد حسن نصرالله أن الرد على «إسرائيل» لن يتأخر وبشكل حربي أوسع، وكذلك الحشد الشعبي الذي اعلن بدوره عن استعداده لإسقاط المسيرات الإسرائيلية، اما سورية فهي في حرب فعلية مع الأميركيين والأتراك والإسرائيليين وانواع الارهاب، وبذلك يجري نسف مشروع الأميركيين الذي يريد عرقلة حلفاء إيران داخل بلدانهم، الأمر الذي يمنحهم حرية حركة في الإقليم بدعم إيران القوة الإقليمية الوحيدة التي نجحت في مجابهة النفوز الأميركي الهائج الذي يرى فيها سبباً في تراجعه في العالم الاسلامي وبالتالي العالم.

فهل تذهب المنطقة الى حرب؟ الأميركيون لا يريدونها ويرغبون في السيطرة بالاقتصاد والحلفاء، اما إيران وتحالفاتها فإنهم ذاهبون للدفاع عن منطقتهم بكل الوسائل المتاحة بما فيها الجانب العسكري والضغوط الشعبية وإفساح المجال لتحالفات عميقة مع روسيا والصين.

Sayyed Nasrallah to the “Israelis”: Wait Our Response, Your Drones will Be Downed in Our Skies

Zeinab Essa

Hezbollah Secretary General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah delivered on Sunday a speech in which he tackled various topics on top of which was the latest “Israeli” aggression on Lebanon.

Addressing tens of thousands of resistance supporters who gathered in Baalbek to celebrate the 2nd anniversary for liberating the Lebanese outskirts from the terrorist groups, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that the “the great gathering in Baalbek forms a primary response to the “Israeli” aggression last night.”

His Eminence further congratulated the people in the Bekaa particularly as well as the Lebanese and Syrian people on the 2nd liberation.

Before proceeding, the Resistance Leader shed light on  the painful memory of the disappearance of Imam Moussa al Sadr and his two dear companions. “We still remember Imam Moussa and his humanity. We are all his children and we are pursuing the search of what happened to him,” he added, noting that “what we are enjoying today from resistance and victories is due largely to the blessing of the presence of Imam Musa al-Sadr in Lebanon.”

Meanwhile, Sayyed Nasrallah apologized for excluding the flags of some Lebanese parties from a logo marking the end of the 2006 aggression.

Back to the title of the event, His Eminence stated: “What has happened in recent years and ended the war in the Jaroud [outskirts] was not a normal event and it should not become so.”

“The Jaroud victory has ended partition scheme,” he stressed, confirming that “Al-Nusra and Daesh terrorists far than ever from threatening Lebanon.”

In parallel, His Eminence said: “After the end of the Jaroud battle, we announced evacuating our positions at the Lebanese border. We still maintain our presence along the border as a combat structure and when needed, thousands can join the front.”

He further recalled that “the US had asked the Lebanese state to prevent Hezbollah from starting the border outskirts war and the Lebanese decision to involve the Lebanese Army was brave.”

He went on to hail the victory on the Syrian arena, stressing that “Syria is moving firmly towards the complete victory.”

On another level, Sayyed Nasrallah warned that “the Americans are trying to revive and support Daesh in Iraq.”

“The Americans want an excuse to keep their presence in Iraq,” he said, pointing out that “The US helicopters are rescuing Daesh leaders in Afghanistan.”

On those raiding doubts, Sayyed Nasrallah wondered: “Was the liberation off the South achieved without sacrifices and blood?”

“The responsibility for the security in the Bekaa region is the responsibility of the state,” he said.

On the recent “Israeli” aggression against Lebanon, Sayyed Nasrallah emphasized that “what happened from an “Israeli” aggression is very dangerous and our stance will be on the level of the threats.”

His Eminence also unveiled that “the 1st drone is that of surveillance and wasn’t equipped with bombs while after 1 or 2 minutes the 2nd drone hit a certain target in the Dahyieh.”

“This suicide aggression via a drone  is the 1st of its kind since 14 August 2006,” the Resistance Leader said, noting that “what happened was an attack and direct targeting to Dahyieh.” He said it was the first clear dangerous breach of rules of engagement.

He also announced that Hezbollah “will show the drones to verify that they are not commercial ones. They are official and well-manufactured.”

Warning that “there is a scenario similar to what is happening in Iraq from attacking the Hash Shaabi [Popular Mobilization Forces],”

Sayyed Nasrallah made it clear that:

“In Lebanon, we won’t allow this path to take place and will do everything to prevent it from taking place. Everything that prevents such an approach, we will do.”

To the “Israeli” settlers, His Eminence said:

“[Benjamin] Netanyahu would be mistaken if he thinks that this issue can go unnoticed. We in the Islamic Resistance will not allow such a course at any cost.”

“The era for an “Israeli” aircraft to strike in Lebanon and the entity remains secure has ended. Long gone is the time when “Israeli” jets strike Lebanon and we do not respond. I tell the settlers in the North and everywhere across the Occupied territories: do not think you can live in peace, do not think you can stay calm,” he added.

Sayyed Nasrallah went on to threaten:

“Today from Al-Bekaa, I say to the settlers of the occupied Palestine, do not feel assured, Hezbollah will not allow such an attack to pass without response .”

According to the Resistance Leader,

““Israeli” drones violating Lebanon are no longer of that of violation to sovereignty and information gathering but that of aggression and murder. Let the ”Israeli” know that from now on, we will face the “Israeli” drones in the Lebanese skies and we will work to bring them down.”

To the Lebanese and international community, he said:

“Let anyone who wants to talk to the American do that to make the “Israeli” calm down.”

Regarding the recent “Israeli” strike on Syria,  Sayyed Nasrallah denied Netanyahu’s claims that Al-Quds Iranian forces was targeted. In this context, His Eminence clarified:

 

““Israel” did not attack Al-Quds Force position in Syria but rather a house containing Hezbollah fighters.”

“Netanyahu and the enemy’s army announced that an Al-Quds Force center was attacked and those attacked were Iranians. He did all that and presented himself as national and brave hero… He is lying to his people. He is selling them nonsense and is going against the facts on the ground,” he confirmed.

In response, His Eminence sent a sounding message to the apartheid entity by saying:

“We aren’t joking and told the Zionists , we have a clear commitment that if “Israel” kills any of our brothers in Syria, we will respond to this killing in Lebanon and not in Shebaa Farms. “

“I advise the “Israeli” on the border from today to stand on a foot and a half and wait our response,” he said.

Hoping that there will be a unified Lebanese position to face the recent “Israeli” aggressions, Sayyed Nasrallah once again repeated:

“We won’t pass yesterday’s aggression and Netanyahu today is holding the elections with the blood of “Israelis”.”

“We will defend our country at all borders and at the sea and our skies .We are the people of the battle imposed by the enemy,” he said, concluding that “We-in Hezbollah- might sell our homes, starve and fight, but we do not sell our dignity and pride.”

 

IDENTITY OF TWO HEZBOLLAH FIGHTERS KILLED IN RECENT DAMASCUS AIRSTRIKES REVEALED

25.08.2019

A Lebanese source affiliated with Hezbollah identified on August 25 two fighters of the Lebanese group, who were killed in the recent Israeli airstrikes on the Syrian capital, Damascus.

The fighters were identified as Hassan Yusuf al-Zabib from the town of Nmairiyeh in southern Lebanon and Yasser Ahmad Dahir from the town of Blida in the same region.

Hassan is reportedly the son of Yusuf al-Zabib, a key administrator in the Hezbollah-affiliated news channel al-Manar.

The Israeli military said that its warplanes struck on August 24 Iranian forces, which were preparing to launch armed drones at its positions. The airstrikes targeted positions in the vicinity of the town of Aqraba, south of Damascus.

Hezbollah has not released any official statement on the incident, so far. However, the group’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah is expected to reveal details on the incident in the upcoming speech.

WAR REPORT: ISRAEL CARRIES OUT STRIKES ON SYRIA, LEBANON AND IRAQ

South Front

The situation in the Middle East is once again escalating.

On August 24, Israeli warplanes bombed what the Israeli military described as ‘Iranian targets’ near the town of Aqraba south of the Syrian capital, Damascus. The Syrian air-defense forces intercepted several hostile missiles. However, the rest of them hit the target.

According to claims by the Israeli side, the targeted positions were used by the Qods Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps and affiliated units to prepare an attack on Israel with several armed drones. The Israeli military also released a satellite image of the positions its warplanes struck claiming that the image shows Qods Force Operatives’ building and a weapons warehouse.

IRGC commander Mohsen Rezaee denied that any Iranian position was hit. However, Lebanese sources reported that two Hezbolalh members were killed by the airstrikes. They were identified as Hassan Yusuf al-Zabib from the town of Nmairiyeh in southern Lebanon and Yasser Ahmad Dahir from the town of Blida in the same region. Hassan Yusuf al-Zabib is reportedly the son of Yusuf al-Zabib, a key administrator in the Hezbollah-affiliated news channel al-Manar.

Early on August 25, an explosion rocked Beirut’s Southern Suburb, known as the stronghold of Hezbollah. According to initial reports, two Israeli drones crashed in the area. Later, Hezbollah clarified that the drones were rigged with explosives and attacked the group’s media center.

“The first drone fell without causing damage while the second one was laden with explosives and exploded causing huge damage to the media center,” Mohamed Afif, the group’s spokesman said adding that the inactive drone is in the Hezbollah hands now.

Later on the same day, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah made an official statement on the situation vowing to shoot down Israeli drones flying over Lebanon. Nasrallah also promised that Hezbollah will respond to recent Israeli airstrikes on Damascus, which killed two fighters of the Lebanese group.

These developments were followed by a mysterious airstrike on a convoy of the Iraqi Armed Forces’ Popular Mobilization Units (the part of the military often describe as Iranian proxies by US-Israeli media) near the Syrian border. The strike destroyed at least 3 vehicles and reportedly killed a PMU officer.

The recent increase of Israel military actions across the region accidentally came ahead of the election into Israel’s Knesset in September 2019. It seems that once again the current Israeli leadership is escalating the situation in the region to secure a local political victory.

Sayyed Nasrallah: Hezbollah Will Strike Israeli Drones over Lebanon, Zionist Soldiers on Border Must Stand on a Leg and a Half and Await Us

August 25, 2019

Mohammad Salami

Capture

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah confirmed on Sunday that the Islamic Resistance will confront all the Israeli drones which violate the Lebanese airspace, and endeavor to down them, adding that the party will prevent ‘Israel’ from repeating in Lebanon the same aggression path it followed against the Hashd Shaabi sites in Iraq at any price.

“The time at which Israeli war jets used to strike targets in Lebanon while the usurping entity in Palestine kept safe has ended.” “If any Lebanese party opposes our decision, let it ask the Americans to rein in ‘Israel’.”

Delivering a speech during Hezbollah ceremony which marks the second anniversary of the Second Liberation, Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that party will do anything possible to prevent ‘Israel’ from pursuing this new aggression path, calling on the Zionists across the entity to keep worried and expect the Resistance attacks at any time.

Hezbollah Secretary General described the Israeli drone attack on Dahiyeh as very dangerous, clarifying that the Israeli drone has a military nature and devised by the Zionist army to carry out a suicide attack on a target in the southern suburb of Beirut.

“Hezbollah possesses the drone and may show it publicly in coordination with the state security apparatuses in Lebanon.”

The above mentioned drone was flying at a low attitude when a group of young men in the targeted area of Moawad stoned it, so it fell down, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that after one minute another drone carried out a suicide attack as it had been booby-trapped.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that although the attack did not claim martyrs, it indicates a very dangerous development which may be repeated on a daily basis if it keeps unanswered, highlighting that “this was the first Israeli attack on Lebanon since 2006 war”.

If we do not respond to the Zionist attack on Dahiyeh, ‘Israel’ will repeat the same model used to attack the Hashd Shaabi sites in Iraq.”

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah will not the enemy to turn back the clock on the new formulas which have protected Lebanon, calling on all the Lebanese to support the national right in face of the Israeli aggression.

“If the Zionist enemy thinks that the financial pressure on Hezbollah will push it to surrender, we reiterate that we are ready to sell our houses in order to fight and defend our dignity, sovereignty and presence.”

Commenting on the Israeli air raids on Syria on Saturday night, Sayyed Nasrallah clarified that they targeted a Hezbollah site there and claimed two martyrs, stressing that they may never remain unanswered.

Sayyed Nasrallah recalled his threat that if the Israeli attacks on Syria claim any of Hezbollah members, the Resistance will respond in Lebanon, adding that Hezbollah will respond to the Zionist airstrikes overnight on Syria in Lebanon.

Sayyed Nasrallah addressed the Israeli troops on Lebanon’s border,

“Stand on a leg and a half and wait for our response which may take place at any time on the borders and beyond the borders.”

(“Stand on a leg and a half” means that the Zionist soldiers must keep trembling with fear and wait for Hezbollah response.)

The Israelis must know that their prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu aims at winning the parliamentary elections at the expense of their blood,  according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that the Zionist leader lies to the settlers by alleging that the overnight air strikes targeted Iranian troops in Syria.

“Netnayahu is pulling the Lebanese, Syrian, Palestinian and Iraqi fire to the entity and pushing you into the abyss,” his eminence told the Zionist settlers.

Hezbollah leader had started his speech by hailing the “great” attendance of the resistance supporters at the ceremony titled “The Nation’s Safeguard”, stressing that it represents the first response to the Israeli attacks.

Sayyed Nasrallah congratulated the Bekaa locals and the rest of the Lebanese on the Second Liberation Day which marks defeating the terrorist groups on the northeastern border with Syria, felicitating also the Syrians on the Second Liberation Day because Syria benefited greatly from the victory.

Hezbollah Chief recalled the anniversary of kidnapping Imam Sayyed Mousa Al-Sadr and his two companions (August 31), stressing that resistance path has prospered thanks to his eminence.

Sayyed Nasrallah explained that the terrorist threat in the Lebaonon-Syria border area was existential and the victory of the militant groups of Nusra Front and ISIL has never been a secondary event.

The terrorist scheme which was launched in Syria in 2011 aimed at fragmenting the region on sectarian and racial basis after destroying it, according to Sayyed Nasrallah who added that axis of resistance frustrated all that plot.

“We have to recall the terrorists’ control of the Lebanon-Syria borders. We also have to recall the Lebanese political stances which supported the militant groups.”

Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that the US administration asked the Lebanese authorities not only to refrain from launching a campaign to liberate the northeastern outskirts from the terrorist groups but also to prevent Hezbollah from doing that, adding that the Americans are even now refreshing ISIL terrorist group in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas in the region.

“US helicopters save ISIL leaders in Afghanistan and plotting to incite a civil war in the country.”

Sayyed Nasrallah highlighted the Syrian army achievements, stressing that it will certainly regain control Idlib and Eastern Euphrates.

Sayyed Nasrallah maintained that the victory over Nusra Front and ISIL on Lebanon-Syria border pushed away the terrorist danger for an area of more than 50 square kilometers, adding that Hezbollah is still deploying troops on Lebanon-Syria border to repel any possible terrorist infiltration into the Lebanese territories.

Sayyed Nasrallah also called on the Lebanese government to take the needs of the Lebanese who live in Syria’s Qusair into the consideration of its socioeconomic projects, hailing their role in achieving the victory over the terrorist groups.

Domestically, Sayyed Nasrallah reiterated Hezbollah support to the socioeconomic demands of Al-Bekaa locals, blaming the sectarian considerations which frustrate the development projects and urging the Lebanese authorities to assume their responsibilities in this regard.

Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that Hezbollah will exert all the needed efforts to pass the law pertaining establishing Baalbeck-Hermel Development Council, adding that “we may resort to demonstrations and sit-ins if the other ways were blocked”.

His emeince also called on Bekaa locals to cooperate with the state authorities to restore peace in the area, urging them to reject all those who disrepute the families and their honorable history.

The ceremony, held in Al-Ain town in Bekaa, was started with a recital of a number of Holy Quranic verses before a group of of Hezbollah fighters recalled allegiance to the General Commander of the Islamic Resistance troops Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah.

Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades Spokesman Talks to Al-Ahed about the Final Warning to the US

By Zeinab Daher

This will finally lead to fulfilling Allah’s promise and the words of Imam Khamenei that this is the final battle which will end up in eliminating ‘Israel.’

Beirut – In the wake of indications that the United States and the Zionist ‘Israeli’ regime were involved in recent attacks on Iraqi positions of pro-government Popular Mobilization Units, Spokesman of Kata’ib Hezbollah or Hezbollah Brigades resistance group in Iraq Mohammad Mohie talked to al-Ahed News about the party’s stances regarding the field situation, warning the US of a tough response had it committed any future attack against the country.

Targeting Iraq’s Sovereignty

In an exclusive interview with al-Ahed news website, Mr. Mohie made clear that there is no doubt that the latest attacks that targeted Iraq weren’t accidental. “They were rather guided and preplanned after observation and continued monitoring by spy drones whether they are American or as the ‘Israeli’ entity claims that they belong to it,” he stressed.

In all, there are targets the US is standing behind and wants to achieve, which are represented by weakening the Popular Mobilization Units [Hashd al-Shaabi] and the resistance factions, end their role in running the security issue as part of the Iraqi security system, and empty their weapons stock perhaps for a future phase through which the US is planning to bring Daesh [the Arabic acronym for terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL’ group], as it always hints to the possibility of Daesh’s return with the presence of thousands of militants on the Iraqi-Syrian border, he further elaborated.

According to the Iraqi resistance official, all of the previous goals make the US aim unachievable without such practices. Additionally, the US is trying to fulfill its goal through the ‘Israeli’ entity so that it evades responsibility not to be dragged to reactions by Iraqi resistance factions. This is why ‘Israel’ always suggests being behind such strikes.

“What do we care for is not who carried out those strikes, whether it is ‘Israel’ or the United States, we hold the US the full responsibility of those strikes because it has the goals, the will and predetermination to confront the Hashd and exclude it from the Iraqi security equation.”

Conflicting Stances at Home

Responding to a question about the conflicting stances inside the Iraqi milieu, Mr. Mohie was confident to explain that there are many pressures exerted against the Iraqi political forces, the government and some Iraqi sides to prevent them from making decisive stances against the US presence on the first hand, and against those standing behind those strikes, which will consequently lead to condemning the US and demanding to oust it from Iraq.

“This would be difficult to be made due to the lack of will and courage to confront the US. Those pressures are banning the leaderships from taking a decisive stance that would clear things up,” he concluded on this matter.

Regarding the communication issue of the Anbar Operations Commander “Mahmoud al-Falahi”, the man stressed that the Iraqi government won’t be able to make a decision on the matter for clear reasons, because the decision will denounce the US and will consequently lead to heading to the Parliament for making a law that ousts the US, in addition to heading to the United Nations Security Council to denounce it.

“All of this won’t happen due to the lack of will among the political forces and the Iraqi government to reach this apparently difficult level of direct confrontation with the US and impose the Iraqi government and people’s will on it minding the necessity of ending its presence in Iraq.”

The Final Warning

By observing the conflicting reactions, which the man considers don’t suit the situation on the ground, the Hezbollah Brigades found them very weak and improper given the level of threat Iraq is being subjected to.

“There is an open war waged by the US and ‘Israel’ against Iraq, its security forces and the Hashd as well as other factions. There must have been strong stances against this open war.”

Perhaps the only strong and decisive statement was made by the PMU’s second-in-command Haj Abu Mahdi al-Muhandiss, Mr. Mohie explained, adding that the Hezbollah Brigades made their final warning to the US to make everything clear.

“To make the US face the reality, we should have issued this direct accusation since it bears responsibility, it controls the Iraqi bases, the Iraqi airspace, it directly cooperates with the ‘Israeli entity and stresses every time that its presence is to defend the security and existence of the ‘Israeli’ entity against the axis of resistance.”

He further added that it was the reason the resistance movement made this statement to test the US and all other parties that are trying to make use of the Iraqi situation to denounce the strikes against the Iraqi resistance factions and the Hashd.

“There might be future plots to target leaderships, national forces and symbols, and even the holy shrines to create sectarian strife and involve Iraq in new civil wars,” he warned.

The Hezbollah Brigades spokesman stressed that the final warning was meant to deter the US: “But today, we could not expect what would happen had all the Iraqi political forces and resistance factions and the Hashd remained silent in front of this terrible deterioration in confronting such challenges and continued aggression against Iraq’s sovereignty, security forces and the Hashd.”

We believe that the message has been clear to the US. The Americans understand the nature of Hezbollah Brigades and its response, and they have experienced it during the 2003 occupation. They have to take this statement seriously because there will consequently be a tough and true response to any future attack against any target of our security forces whether under an ‘Israeli’, American or other cover. At the end of the day, the US is responsible and will bear the brunt of any repercussions, the man stressed.

Iraq’s Official Stance

Regarding any possible official Iraqi response to the continued aggressions targeting Iraq’s sovereignty, Mr. Mohie was frank to say that the Hezbollah Brigades don’t believe that there is a possibility for it on the security forces level.

“Perhaps they would show that they will respond to any foreign strike whether ‘Israeli’ or not. However, confronting the US forces or responding to the ‘Israeli’ warplanes, I think it is unlikely in the time being as a result of the US pressure and fear of the American arrogance.”

He went on to say that “in fact, the Iraqi parties today are at a crossroad. Actually, they didn’t take advantage of the great achievement of confronting Daesh to be able to impose the equation of deterrence and strength and force the US to deal with Iraq as a similar state that has its own capabilities. The US attempted to return and control Iraq considering it a weak state. It brought its forces to control its security and airspace.”

Meanwhile, there isn’t any official Iraqi power capable of confronting the US military, and not even make a decision because they are willing to get involved in a confrontation amid the complicated circumstances in Iraq, Mr. Mohie concluded on this issue.

The Battle of New Front?

Whether we are facing the battle of new front, which is being talked about by the leaders of the axis of resistance, Mr. Mohie stressed that the battle is still ongoing and didn’t stop over years. “The conspiracy of Daesh was a clear front composed of the US, the ‘Israeli’ entity, Saudi Arabia and all other related forces that presented Daesh as a front in the face of the axis of resistance to divide the region. We faced this plot and foiled it. But this war is still ongoing and won’t stop.”

Perhaps it became clearer nowadays, he said, with the direct US hostility to the Islamic Republic of Iran, the axis of resistance, the Iraqi factions and the Hashd, in addition to the ‘Israeli’ entity’s involvement as a direct player whether in Syria strikes or its further expansion in targeting Iraq and declaring directly and indirectly that all fields are open to its strikes and aggression.

Hereby, the Iraqi Hezbollah Brigades announced that “we are at a continued war with two poles: the first is represented by the global arrogance led by the US and ‘Israel’ and the second is led by the Islamic Republic of Iran, of which we are a part.”

The battle will continue until it reaches the final stage of pushing them to get involved in more foolishness with perhaps wider space of confrontation, Mr. Mohie said.

This will finally lead to fulfilling Allah’s promise and the words of our leaders and Imam Ali Khamenei that this is the final battle which will end up in eliminating ‘Israel,’ the resistance official concluded.

أهمّ دروس تحرير خان شيخون

 

أغسطس 24, 2019

ناصر قنديل

– أما وقد حسم الأمر فقد صار وقت التقييم واستخلاص العبر، فلا ينكرنّ أحد أن الرهانات على تعثّر الدولة السورية توزعت على مشارق الأرض ومغاربها، وأنه حيث لا رهانات كانت هناك تساؤلات وانتظارات. فالكل يُجمع على أن إدلب ليست كسواها، وان تجمع عشرات آلاف المسلحين الذين رفضوا التسويات في مناطقهم التي تحرّرت، يجعل الحرب لتحريرها شديدة الضراوة والقسوة محفوفة بالمخاطر والتضحيات والتساؤلات، وأن وجود آلاف الإرهابيين المقطوعي الجذور اليائسين من أي أفق بعد إدلب يمنح كل هذا المشهد القاتم مزيداً من السواد، وأن الحلف المناوئ للدولة السورية مهما ابتعد أو اقترب عن التشكيلات الإرهابية التي تقاتل في إدلب قد اجتاز الخط الأحمر للتعاون معها سابقاً وما عادت لديه مشكلة بإمدادها بكل أسباب الصمود، وأن تركيا التي لانت وتموضعت بعد معارك حلب إنما فعلت ذلك ليس فقط لأنها حسمت أمرها بالعجز عن المضي في المواجهة الكاملة، بل لأنها أرادت الحفاظ على دورها وحضورها في إدلب، وعندما يصبح مصير إدلب في الميزان يجب التريث في إصدار الأحكام حول كيفية تصرف أنقرة، ولا أيضاً في كيفية تصرف موسكو الحريصة على علاقة مميّزة مع أنقرة تبدّلت بين التصادم والتفاهم، واستقرت على سياق إيجابي رغم الخلاف لزمن غير قصير، لذلك كان الانتظار سيد الموقف.

– في كل معارك المنطقة حيث التكامل بين الجبهات واضح، وحيث التداخل بين تأثيرها على بعضها وموازينها أشد وضوحاً، كانت المواجهات ساخنة في الخليج مياهاً ويابسة، وفي اليمن، وفلسطين، ودخل على الخط تسخين العراق من دون مقدّمات، وتمّ بصورة مفاجئة تسخين لبنان، لكن المكان الوحيد الذي بدا أنه سيقول الكلمة الفصل هو خان شيخون، حيث مفتاح الجغرافيا في مصير إدلب،، حيث يمكن تحقيق تغيير في خطوط الجغرافيا من دون سائر جبهات المنطقة. وأما وقد وقع الأمر وانتهى، فمعادل التأثر والتأثير والأوعية المتصلة سيحضر بقوة. وهذا هو التفسير لحركة الرئيس الفرنسي للمسارعة للقاء الرئيس الروسي ومن بعده وزير الخارجية الإيرانية، وزيارة الرئيس التركي القريبة المرتقبة إلى روسيا، والتراجعات الأميركية عن تهديدات الويل والثبور وعظائم الأمور بحقّ لبنان، والجواب بكلمتين، إنه خان شيخون.

– السياق الجديد بات واضحاً بعد الذي جرى وحسم التساؤلات حول الإمكان، ودليل الإمكان هو الوقوع. وما وقع في خان شيخون قابل للتكرار، ولا حاجة لتجارب أخرى للإثبات، فإن عُرض على الطاولة ما يفي بالغرض من التسليم بمكانة روسيا إلى التعامل مع إيران وملفها النووي والعقوبات والملاحة النفطية، إلى الحل السياسي في سورية ومشاريع الحل وإعادة الإعمار، إلى اليمن، إلى العراق، إلى لبنان، إلى فلسطين، ولا أوهام لدى أحد بحلول جذرية بل اعتراف بحقائق القوة التي يتم على أساسها التفاوض، وإلا فالكلمة للميدان كما قالت خان شيخون.

– سيكون صعباً على البعض الاعتراف لكنها الحقيقة المرة عليهم، إنه الجيش السوري الذي لا يُقهر، ومحور المقاومة الذي لا يهزم، وروسيا التي لا تبيع ولا تشتري في المبادئ.

No, Israel Did Not Attack Iranian Targets In Iraq

 

By Moon Of Alabama

August 01, 2019 “Information Clearing House” – Israeli newspaper repeat a report which claims that Israeli planes hit Iranian targets in Iraq.

From the last one:

The IAF used its F-35i stealth fighter jets to hit two Iraqi bases that were used by Iranian forces and proxies and for storing ballistic missiles, the London-based Saudi daily Asharq Al-Awsat reported on Tuesday.

Asharq Al-Awsat is owned by Faisal bin Salman, a member of the Saudi ruling clan. It is – like other Arab papers – often used to launder Israeli disinformation and propaganda that is then repeated in the Israeli press.

The original Asharq Al-Aswat report reads:

Israel has expanded the scope of its Iranian targets in Iraq and Syria, western diplomatic sources told Asharq Al-Awsat amid reports that Tel Aviv carried out an airstrike earlier this month against an Iranian rockets depot northeast of Baghdad.

The July 19 attack was carried out by an Israeli F-35 fighter jet, they added.

On Sunday, the Ashraf base in Iraq, a former base used by the Iranian opposition People’s Mujahedin of Iran, was targeted by an air raid, said sources.

The base lies 80 kilometers from the border with Iran and 40 kilometers northeast of Baghdad.

The sources revealed that the strikes targeted Iranian “advisors” and a ballistic missile shipment that had recently arrived from Iran to Iraq.

Last week, Syria’s Tal al-Hara was struck by Israeli jets.

The diplomatic sources said the attack targeted Iran’s attempt to seize control of the strategic hill, located in Daraa countryside in southern Syria.

The above F-35 promotion then goes on to laud the Israeli Arrows-3 air defense missile the U.S. paid for.

Of the three incidents Asharq Al-Awsat mentions only one, in Syria, really happened.

On July 19 a fire broke out at a camp of the 16th Brigade of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF). It set off some ammunition. The 16th is a light infantry brigade. It does not have ballistic missiles. While the incident was first reported as a missile attack, an investigation later said (Arabic) that the fire was caused by a defect of some equipment (machine translation)

The Central Commission of Inquiry sent by the People’s Assembly on Sunday announced the results of the investigation into the bombing of the Martyrs’ Camp of the Commission, which is located near the city of Ameri.

The report of the specialized committee confirmed that the investigations conducted have proved that the explosion was not a military target as a result of a plane or a guided missile, but was a fire of solid fuel due to an internal defect.

No one was killed in the incident.

The alleged attack on Sunday never happened:

TØM CΛT @TomtheBasedCat – 17:29 UTC · Jul 30, 2019

The Camp Ashraf incident was nothing more than a rumor that started on Facebook. It’s not even called Ashraf anymore, the base is named after the Brigade 27 commander who was Martyred in Diyala battles.

Saudis hard at work creating Fake News.

It is not the Saudis that created this fake news but the “western diplomatic sources”, aka the Israeli ambassador in London, who briefed the Asharq Al-Awsat writer.

The third incident, in Syria, did happen:

Syria’s state media said on Wednesday an Israeli missile attack had targeted the country’s southern province of Daraa, but did not report any casualties.

State news agency SANA and state TV added that the “Israeli aggression” struck Tal al-Hara hill that is home to Syrian army posts adding that it only caused material damage.

The Tal al-Hara hill, a strategic area overlooking the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, was for many years a major Russian military radar outpost until rebels took it over in 2014 before it was again recaptured by the Syrian army last year.

Israel did not hit any Iranian targets or anything else in Iraq. The Asharq Al-Awsat story is pure propaganda.

If the Israeli air force were stupid enough to bomb targets in Iraq, it would likely see consequences that it would not like:

TØM CΛT @TomtheBasedCat – 18:08 UTC · Jul 30, 2019

And besides

If Israel really wants to waste their time and resources striking sites in Iraq, by all means.

They’ll only accelerate the decision as to whether or not to purchase the S-400 system.

There are plenty of Air Defense Officers who are already fluent in Russian.

Syrian War Report – July 31, 2019: Syrian Army Advancing In Northern Hama

South Front

On the evening of July 28 the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Tiger Forces and their allies renewed their advance on militant positions in northern Hama. In the ensuing series of clashes, government troops eliminated at least 5 units of military equipment belonging to militants and up to 10 members of militant groups.

By the evening of July 29, the SAA and its allies had established full control of the villages of Jibeen and Tell Meleh, and the nearby hilltop. The advance was supported by several dozens of Syrian and Russian airstrikes.

On July 30, government forces made a new attempt to capture the town of Kbanah which is jointly controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and the Turkistan Islamic Party. Pro-government sources claim that this advance was launched in the framework of a larger effort to pressure militants along the contact line creating a wider buffer zone, wide enough to prevent them from shelling civilian areas. Nonetheless, this attempt was as unsuccessful  as the several previous ones made over the last few months.

The start of the SAA advance took place as a report by the Russian military appeared that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham is deploying reinforcements to the southern part of the Idlib de-escalation zone.

The head of the Russian General Staff’s Main Operational Department Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi said on July 29 that around 300 fighters, 10 battle tanks and 20 vehicles armed with guns were employed by militants in the recent clashes in northern Hama. He added that Hayat Tahrir al-Sham had redeployed 500 of its fighters from the northern part of the de-escalation zone to the frontline.

At the same time, the Russian military noted that U.S. forces are looting oil fields and farmlands in northeastern Syria.

“Syrian oil is extracted and sold from the fields of Conico, al-Omar and al-Tanak located on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River. There is a criminal scheme to transport Syrian oil across the border,” Col. Gen. Rudskoi said adding that the number of U.S. private military contractors deployed to secure this effort exceeded 3,500.

The US is also preparing militant sabotage groups that would be tasked with attacks on infrastructure to destabilize the situation in the government-held areas. These groups are being formed from around 2,700 members of Jaysh Maghawir al-Thawra and other militant groups trained by the US.

Israel has expanded its operations against ‘Iranian targets’ to Iraq employing F-35 jets, Asharq Al-Awsat, an Arabic-language newspaper published in London, reported on July 30 citing Western diplomatic sources.

According to the report, an Israeli F-35 warplane was behind a July 19 strike on a supposed rocket depot at the ‘Camp Ashraf’ military base of the Popular Mobilization Units. At the time  the Saudi-based al-Arabiya network claimed that members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps and Hezbollah had been killed in the strike. However, this claim was subsequently denied by Iraqi sources.

Iran’s Qods Force And Modern Proxy Wars

South Front

25.07.2019

Iran’s Qods Force And Modern Proxy Wars

Based on the analysis prepared by Dennis M. Nilsen, PhD exclusively for SouthFront

The Qods Force is the irregular warfare unit of Iran’s Corps of Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (Sepah-e Pasdaran-e Enghelab-e Eslami).  Created during the Holy Defense to augment the capabilities of the Sepah to include irregular warfare, it has since become one of the chief means of expanding Iranian ‘soft power’ within the Middle East and throughout the world.  Carrying the Persian name for Jerusalem, it is emblematic of the eschatological significance of the Islamic Republic’s regional military strategy.  More has come to light about this secretive organization since its inception, but precious little of its organization, personnel, weaponry and operations is known, and comes to light only in the wake of its suspected activities.

The close of the Holy Defense in 1988 saw the completion of the first chapter of the history of the Islamic Republic – conventional war.  The peace which followed left the new government intact but the population war-weary; the government needed to turn its attention to rebuilding the infrastructure and bringing orderliness to the disrupted lives of its people. The armed forces – both the Artesh and the Sepah – though rich with battle experience, had been worn down and desperately need this peace.

If this war taught the Iranian leadership anything, the lesson was: prevent another conventional attack by pushing the frontier for possible conflict as far as possible from the border.  To safeguard the home of the Revolution – which Khomeini and his followers viewed, and still view, as the only legitimate Islamic government, and the one which is meant to prepare the way for the return of the Mahdi – a sizeable buffer had to be constructed to allow for its endurance.  While Iran had not been defeated in the Holy Defense, it had been severely wounded by Saddam’s army with Western backing. At end of the war, Iran was in shortage in key resources and finance. The war clearly exposed the weaknesses of both the Iranian economy and the armed forces. The mujtahid rulers needed to create and perfect a national defense based upon self-reliance in order to turn Iran into a fortress for Islam from which calls for Islamic unity in the face of Zionist and Western imperialist influence could issue.  Having survived this baptism of fire intact, and with geopolitics still centered around the bipolar contest between the United States and the Soviet Union, the time for such a reconstruction appeared optimal.

The Sepah was created immediately after the Revolution in order to counter threats from armed opposition groups inside Iran such as the MKO (the Mojahedin-e Khalq or People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran) and to protect the ideological integrity of the new political system. Originally a paramilitary formation, during the Holy Defense it necessarily took on a military character while shouldering with the Artesh the burden of fighting.  During the war, in addition to the many conventional battles fought against the Iraqis, the Iranians also deployed special forces to the front line in the mountainous terrain of the north, and behind the lines to support the Kurdish struggle in northern Iraq against Saddam Hussein regime. To mirror this unit within the Artesh, the Sepah created the Qods Force to engage in all aspects of irregular warfare. Thus, the role of Quds force in the establishment of Hezbollah’s Islamic Resistance (al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya) in 1982 during the Lebanese Civil War was inevitable; following this it was used to support the operations of the Hezbe Wahdat Shia mujahedin in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation.

By supporting Hezbollah and the Hezbe Wahdat, Iran was able to counter, respectively, the American/Zionist coalition and the Soviets, thereby keeping these two groups from threatening the territorial integrity of the Islamic Republic.  When Khomeini died in 1989 and was succeeded by Ali Khamenei, who oversaw the transition from a war to a peace economy, Qods was able, along with its parent Sepah, to maintain its level of funding and even to increase its relative importance within the military strategy of Iran.

Having discussed the ideological and strategic origins and purposes of the Qods Force, let us look at its structure and methods of warfare.  Apart from its three senior commanders, no names can be attributed to either its leadership or the remainder of the force.  Major General Pasdar Qassem Soleimani, presently the most well-known Iranian soldier, has commanded the Qods Force since 1997, and his two deputies are Brigadier General Pasdar Ismail Qaani and Brigadier General Pasdar Ahmad Sabouri.  Because all members of Qods are taken from the larger Sepah, one can presume that it retains the same rank structure as its parent, although it is impossible to verify or deny this.  Similarly, although the size of the Qods Force can be approximated, its small-level tactical organization can only be guessed at based upon the arrangement of other comparable military units.  As indicated previously, Qods has two missions: advising and training of foreign military and police, and clandestine operations.  Teams of men for either type of mission may be formed ad hoc out of the service pools of each of the eight directorates suspected to exist.  According to the United States Joint Chiefs of Staff, Qods is divided into the following eight directorates:

  • Iraq
  • Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Yemen (Persian Gulf)
  • Israel, Lebanon, Jordan (Middle East)
  • Afghanistan, Pakistan, India
  • Turkey
  • Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldovia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia (former-Soviet Union)
  • Central and Western Europe and the United States and Canada
  • North Africa

Further, US military intelligence suggests that Qods is divided into several branches of specialization:

  • Intelligence
  • Finance
  • Politics
  • Sabotage
  • Special operations

Because however its operations are unconventional, there is no reason to think that the Qods Force has an organization remarkably different from other secret services.  For its clandestine operations, something approaching a commando team of varying size (anywhere from 5 to 15 men led by one or two officers) seems reasonable.  Also, there could be organic, permanent units of Qods assigned to each directorate, each with a different operational specialty, and these would invariably be combined-arms units but with the component men varying depending upon what needs to be accomplished.  For the advisory and training missions, arguably what constitutes the greatest percentage of Qods assignments, one can imagine an officer/NCO structure corresponding to the level of the ranks needing training; e.g. so many officers of such a rank to train their peers or lower ranking officers, and likewise so many NCOs to train their peers or enlisted men.  As a side note, it has been suggested that Qods trains most of its clients in either the Sudan or in Iran itself.

For all of these missions, the officer/NCO ratio is necessarily higher than in the rest of the Sepah.  For this reason, it can be argued that officers and NCOs comprise a large majority of the Qods Force personnel, seeing that enlisted men would not be used to train or advise their superiors.

Where does the Qods Force carry out its clandestine operations?  From reasonable conjecture regarding the structure, the reach of Qods is world-wide.  It has been suspected of involvement in South America (e.g. in supporting the government of Venezuela), of continuing to intervene in Afghanistan against the American presence, of constituting a permanent training and advisory role to the Islamic Resistance of Hezbollah, of supporting the Syrian government since the conflict of 2011, and most of all of involvement in Iraq since 2003. Since 2008, the Qods Force has been given control of all military operations in Iraq, and it formed and currently oversees the three primary Shi’ite paramilitary organizations which work in conjunction with the Iraqi military: Asa’ib Ahl al-Haq (“League of the Righteous”) with 10,000 members, Kata’ib Hizb Allah (“Brigades of the Party of God”) with 30,000+ members, and the Saraya al-Salam (“Peace Companies”) with anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 members.  This theatre of operations, provided indirectly to Qods by the Americans, gives the most continual experience to its members through the training and directing of these militias.  In the theatre of the Persian Gulf, the recent attacks against oil tankers bear the mark of what Qods is capable of, but the Iranian Government has consistently denied responsibility.  Conversely, American and Israeli special forces possess the capability to carry out such false-flag attacks and their histories give plenty of examples.  Currently, the most important missions which Qods directly or in which it participates are:

  • Missile shipments to Hezbollah
  • Arming and directing of Shi’ite militias in Iraq
  • Support of Syrian Government
  • Support of Houthis

As to types of weapons, the Qods Force probably uses the same species as other special forces (e.g. United States Green Berets, Russian Spetsnaz, British SAS), that is:

  • Handguns (e.g. PC-9 ZOAF)
  • submachine guns (e.g. MPT-9, KL-7.62mm)
  • heavy machine guns (e.g. MGA3)
  • portable MANPADs (e.g. Soheil)
  • rocket-propelled grenade launcher (e.g. Raad, RPG-29)
  • anti-tank weapons (e.g. Saeghe 1/2)
  • portable mortars (e.g. 37mm Marsh mortar)
  • plastic explosives (e.g. C4, Semtex)

The use of heavy equipment does not correspond to its missions.

In terms of size, the active personnel of Qods has been estimated to be anywhere from 5,000 to 20,000, although the most common number given is 15,000.  Globalsecurity.org asserts that in 2008, the Iranian Supreme National Security Council authorized an increase in the size of the group to 15,000, but this cannot be presently confirmed.  By comparison, the Russian Spetsnaz has a strength of roughly 5,000, the United States Green Berets 7,000, the British SAS 400 to 600.

Moving to consider its place in the Iranian political ideology of Twelve Shiism, Qods Force bears great eschatological significance.  A fact which receives barely any coverage in the Western press, the founding of the Islamic Republic was clearly stated by Ayatollah Khomeini to coincide with the approach of the end of the world.  As Twelver Shias, Khomeini and his successors are convinced that the maintenance of velayat-e faqih is critical to the return of the Twelfth Imam, Mohammad al-Mahdi.  The eschatology of the Jafari School of Jurisprudence (the official legal teaching in Iran, named after the Sixth Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq) names Jerusalem as central to the return of the Mahdi and to the establishment of Islamic government throughout the world; i.e. the golden age of Islamic rule as promised by the Prophet Mohammed. According to Sunni and Shia prophecies, the army foreordained to conquer Jerusalem is to be comprised of mostly people from the region of Iran with Iranians having a great and important role in the event. Thus, the naming of the special operations subset of the Sepah after the Persian name for the Holy City of Jerusalem should show the rest of the world just how important to the Iranians is the maintenance of their system of government by all means possible.  Currently, the use of Qods to engage in asymmetrical warfare against the American-Israeli alliance is the best means to ensure this end.  Presently, Qods can be seen as forming a ‘shield-forward’ for the Islamic Republic from a strategic point of view; this gives eschatological importance to their continued support of Hezbollah in Lebanon and to their great commitment in men and material to ensure the continuance of the Syrian government. They believe that when Imam Mahdi returns, Zionism, which Shia regard as one of the main tools in the struggle between Good and Evil, will be defeated in the final great battle for Jerusalem. Therefore they are approaching as close as possible to Israel, serving at the front line. They have succeeded in giving Iran a reasonable amount of protection, if at the expense of their allies who are physically closer to Israel.  The American Navy remains a threat in the Persian Gulf, but the wider Sepah, to whose vigilance this theatre is committed, are confident they can close the Strait of Hormuz if necessary.  The strategic balance is currently in favor of Iran and they have thus fulfilled what they believe to be their role in preparing for the Mahdi’s return.

Of those who believe in the eschatological purpose of the Islamic Republic, the Qods Force is unquestionably the vanguard of the coming march on Jerusalem, and the Western press ignores this to their own peril and the continued ignorance of their audiences.

From military and political standpoints, Qods has been very effective.  Iranian strategy has, since the 1979 Revolution, been to keep the American-Israeli alliance and its proxies at bay.  As stated previously, due to Iran’s inability to wage a full-scale war against both countries, the use of unconventional warfare has made the Qods Force come into prominence within Iran’s national defensive strategy.  Through both its advisory/training roles and its clandestine operations, Qods is used to prevent Iran’s two chief enemies from realizing strategic objectives in the Middle East and Persian Gulf and to make their continued presence within Iran’s immediate zone of security as costly and unpleasant as possible.

أوروبا الاستراتيجية مع إيران والحالية في السجن الأميركي؟

يوليو 17, 2019

د. وفيق إبراهيم

مشروع الوساطة الأوروبية بين إيران والأميركيين يهدف في الظاهر لوقف تدحرج الطرفين نحو حرب مدمرة، لكنه يعكس ايضاً حاجة أوروبا لإعادة تأسيس دور استراتيجي يفتح لها مجدداً ابواب الشرق الاوسط الاقتصادية بالغاز والنفط والاستهلاك وإعادة الإعمار.

فالدول الاساسية في الاتحاد الأوروبي على معرفة عميقة بأن انتصار الأميركيين لا يعني إلا تمديد الاعتقال الأميركي لأوروبا لنصف قرن وأكثر، كما أن فوز إيران وسط تأييد صيني روسي و»ضبابية أوروبية متأمركة» يعني استبعاد أوروبا عن أي دور اقتصادي في الشرق الأوسط ما يؤدي أيضاً إلى المزيد من تراجعها.

هذا ما يدفع بالاتحاد الأوروبي لتأسيس وساطة تلبي ما يطلبه الأميركيون وتبني آفاقاً مستقبلية مع إيران البلد الواعد بإمكاناته الاقتصادية وعلاقاته الإقليمية والدولية.

لذلك بدت الوساطة الأوروبية كعجوز حدباء تحاول الانتصاب ولا تقدر، فتتحايل على الزمن بشدّ ظهرها الى الوراء لتبدو قوية.

للتعمق أكثر، تحتوي الوساطة الأوروبية على ثلاثة مستويات: إعادة السماح الأميركية لثماني دول بالتعامل الاقتصادي مع إيران. وكانت هذه الدول تتمتع باستثناء أميركي من الالتزام بالعقوبات الأميركية لكن واشنطن ألغتها مؤخراً.

ويتعلّق المستوى الثاني بتخفيف الدور الإيراني في اليمن والعراق وسورية. وهذا يفتح الباب في المستوى الثالث لمفاوضات جديدة بين الأميركيين والإيرانيين والأوروبيين والروس والصينيين حول إعادة تمتين الاتفاق النووي موضوع الخلاف، على أن تفصل بينهما لقاءات تجمع الرئيسين الإيراني روحاني والأميركي ترامب، فهذا الأخير بحاجة اليها للزوم معركته الرئاسية في 2020، لأنها تتيح له الظهور كالمنتصرين.

يتبين أن القسم الأول من المبادرة الأوروبية يشبه حبة اسبرين فيما المطلوب طرح علاج كامل لأزمة عميقة. فالخنق الاقتصادي الأميركي لإيران بعشرة اصابع لا يتراخى بمجرد توقف اصبع واحد عن الخنق ولمدة محدودة. وهذا يكشف عن المراوغات الأوروبية بسبب الضعف «أمام الأميركي» فقط وليس اي شيء آخر.

لمزيد من الإيضاح، فهناك أربع دول من هذه الدول الثماني لا تزال تتعامل مع إيران اقتصادياً، وهي الصين وروسيا وتركيا بالإضافة الى دولتين أخريين تقيم علاقات سرية.

أما لجهة آلية التعامل «الانستكس». فهي لا تشمل النفط والغاز اللذين يعتبران أهم موارد الاقتصاد الإيراني وتشمل مستويات اقتصادية بوسع الصين وروسيا تلبيتها.

أين الجديد اذاً؟ هناك شعور بأن هذا الجانب قابل للتطوير السريع بمجرد قبول الطرفين المتنازعين بالمبادرة الأوروبية. وهناك من يقول إن أوروبا تحمل موافقة أميركية تريد من إيران إعلان موافقتها المسبقة على المبادرة، حتى يصبح بوسعها القبول بمسلسل تنازلات متدحرجة. وهذا احتمال قابل لعدم التحقق.

على مستوى الطلب من إيران تخفيف دورها السياسي في اليمن والعراق وسورية وإعلان ذلك بوضوح. فهذا غاية في العجب.

لأن أنصار الله في اليمن هم قوة يمنية عربية تشكل جزءاً من الزيود الذين يحكمون اليمن منذ أكثر من ألف عام.

هؤلاء قبلوا باتفاق استوكهولم السويدي الذي يبتدئ بالساحل الغربي والحديدة دافعاً اليمن بكامله الى مفاوضات الحل النهائي، ومراقبو الامم المتحدة هم الذين اعترفوا أن تعطيل الاتفاق من مسؤولية السعودية وقوات رجلها هادي.

ودور إيران هو التحالف السياسي مع قوات أنصار الله في يمنٍ محاصرٍ بحراً وبراً وجواً منذ 2016، فحتى الذبابة لا تستطيع العبور إلا بعد موافقة الحصار السعودي الأميركي.

أما لجهة العراق فلإيران علاقة بالحشد الشعبي الذي يجسّد التطلعات الشعبية العراقية منذ مرحلة ما قبل الفتوحات الاسلامية لأنهم عرب العراق المقيمون فيها منذ أكثر من 1500 عام وأكثر.

فهل يطلب الإيرانيون من عراقيين مغادرة العراق والى أين؟ أم يطلبون منهم إلقاء سلاحهم والتعامل مع القوات الأميركية التي تحتل العراق منذ 2003 مواصلين الطلب من الحوثيين في اليمن الاستسلام لقوات سعودية إماراتية مدعومة أميركياً واسرائيلياً تحتل اليمن منذ 2016؟

يتبقى لسورية التي تجمع إيران بها علاقات صداقات وبضع مئات من مستشارين يعملون الى جانب الجيش السوري، هذا بالإضافة الى قوات حزب الله التي تعتبر معركتها في سورية جزءاً من معركتها ضد الكيان الإسرائيلي الغاصب.

لذلك فإن التحالفات تعمل تحت قيادة الجيش العربي السوري وليس لديها مشروع منفرد، أما السؤال هنا فكيف نطلب من حزب الله والمستشارين الإيرانيين العاملين مع الدولة الشرعية الانكفاء عن سورية ونترك الاحتلال الأميركي الأوروبي لشرق سورية وشمالها والاحتلال التركي لعفرين وإدلب وأرياف حماه وحلب مع شريط حدودي طويل؟

فهل هي مبادرة سويةُ تلك التي تتضمن طرداً لسكان محليين مثل الحوثيين والحشد الشعبي، وتخفيفاً لقدرات الجيش السوري وعقوبات على حزب الله ولا تمسُ شعرة واحدة من الاحتلالات الأميركية للمنطقة والعدوانية الإسرائيلية الدائمة والاحتلال السعودي لليمن الداعم لمنظمة «قسد» الكردية التي بدأت ببيع نفط سورية في شرقي الفرات للإسرائيليين.

تدل هذه المعطيات على مدى الضعف الأوروبي امام رئيس أميركي أهوج قابل للاستثارة بسرعة. وهذا ما يخشاه حكام أوروبا المذعورون.

بالمقابل إيران وسورية واليمن والحشد الشعبي وحزب الله ليسوا من فئة الذين يصابون بذعر من المحتلين والدليل أنهم يحاربونهم في كل مكان، بقي على الأوروبيين أن يخرجوا من خوفهم لأن مصالحهم الاستراتيجية هي مع إيران وحلفائها الوحيدين القادرين على إخراج أوروبا من السجن الأميركي.

Mahmoud al-Falahi: Leaking the coordinates of the army and the resistance to America and “Israel

Hezbollah Releases Audio Files of Iraqi Officer’s Phone Coordination with CIA against Hashd Al-Shaabi

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iraq’s Hezbollah popular group released a series of audio files revealing phone talks and Whatsapp chats between a senior Iraqi officer in al-Anbar province and the US spy agency, CIA, against Iraq’s Hashd al-Shaabi (popular forces).
The audio files disclosed contacts between Mahmoud al-Falahi, the commander of al-Anbar operations in the Iraqi army, with a CIA agent who is an Iraqi national.
The CIA agent asked al-Falahi to provide him with the geographical coordinates of the existing military bases at the borders between Iraq and Syria “to be attacked by the US and Israeli air forces”.
He also told al-Falahi to meet with “the US army and intelligence service commanders in Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan region or at the US forces’ base in al-Habaniyeh” in Western Iraq.
During the conversations, al-Falahi provided the detailed coordinates of military bases in al-Anbar to the agent.

Hezbollah described the audio files as documents showing al-Falahi’s “plot against the Iraqi army, security, Hashd al-Shaabi and resistance forces “, warning that his spying for the CIA and Israeli Mossad spy agencies has endangered Iran’s national security.

Iraqi security sources disclosed in 2016 that Washington was exerting pressure on the Baghdad government to end Hashd al-Shaabi’s partnership in war against ISIL and dissolve the militia army that has the lion share in the war on terrorism in the country.

“The US government has conveyed the message to the Iraqi government through its diplomats that there is no need to Hashd al-Shaabi forces and their role should come to an end,” a senior Iraqi source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told FNA at the time.

A senior member of the Iraqi parliament revealed last month the US plots and attempts to dissolve Hashd al-Shaabi with pressures on Iraq’s government after the popular forces regained control over Iraq’s borders with Syria.

The Arabic-language al-Ma’aloumeh news website quoted Odai Awad as saying that the US was pressuring Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to force him act against Hashd al-Shaabi.

He referred to the US embassy’s contacts with the ISIL commanders, and said certain regions in Iraq are showing allegiance to the ISIL again in a way that a number of Iraqi security commanders have compared the situation to the situation in 2014.

Awad said that the US pressures started after Hashd al-Shaabi forces retook control over the Iraqi-Syrian borders, adding that at present, some measures are being adopted against Hashd al-Shaabi on the political and international scene in a bid to disturb the public opinion in freed areas.
