>Russian air force planes land in Venezuela carrying troops: report
CARACAS (Reuters) - Two Russian air force planes landed in Venezuela’s main airport on Saturday carrying a Russian defense official and nearly 100 troops, according to a local journalist, amid strengthening ties between Caracas and Moscow.
A flight-tracking website showed that two planes left from a Russian military airport bound for Caracas on Friday, and another flight-tracking site showed that one plane left Caracas on Sunday.
The report comes three months after the two nations held military exercises on Venezuelan soil that President Nicolas Maduro called a sign of strengthening relations, but which Washington criticized as Russian encroachment in the region.
Reporter Javier Mayorca wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the first plane carried Vasily Tonkoshkurov, chief of staff of the ground forces, adding that the second was a cargo plane carrying 35 tonnes of material.
An Ilyushin IL-62 passenger jet and an Antonov AN-124 military cargo plane left for Caracas on Friday from Russian military airport Chkalovsky, stopping along the way in Syria, according to flight-tracking website Flightradar24.
The cargo plane left Caracas on Sunday afternoon, according to Adsbexchange, another flight-tracking site.
A Reuters witness saw what appeared to be the passenger jet at the Maiquetia airport on Sunday.
It was not immediately evident why the planes had come to Venezuela.
Venezuela’s Information Ministry did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
Russia’s Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry did not reply to messages seeking a comment. The Kremlin spokesman also did not reply to a request for comment.
The Trump administration has levied crippling sanctions on the OPEC nation’s oil industry in efforts to push Maduro from power and has called on Venezuelan military leaders to abandon him. Maduro has denounced the sanctions as U.S. interventionism and has won diplomatic backing from Russia and China.
In December, two Russian strategic bomber aircraft capable of carrying nuclear weapons landed Venezuela in a show of support for Maduro’s socialist government that infuriated Washington.
Maduro on Wednesday said Russia would send medicine “next week” to Venezuela, without describing how it would arrive, adding that Moscow in February had sent some 300 tonnes of humanitarian aid.
Venezuela in February had blocked a convoy carrying humanitarian aid for the crisis-stricken country that was coordinated with the team of opposition leader Juan Guaido, including supplies provided by the United States, from entering via the border with Colombia.https://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-politics/russian-air-force-planes-land-in-venezuela-carrying-troops-report-idUSKCN1R50NB?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=twitter

During the 1990s, large numbers of residents began to receive permission to cross the ceasefire line to conduct religious pilgrimages or attend university. A small number of women also applied to cross the ceasefire line and marry Syrian men. This crossing program was the subject of the film The Syrian Bride.
The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) carried out a new ambush against a group of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers in the eastern desert of the Homs Governorate.
According to a military communique from the Homs Governorate, the Islamic State carried out the ambush along the strategic Palmyra-Deir Ezzor Highway.
This ambush by the Islamic State on Sunday afternoon resulted in the death of at least five Syrian Arab Army soldiers, including one officer with the rank of colonel.

Spring offensive has definitely begun.
Does Daesh really control that territory in the Homs badya though? I mean do they really still control those two oil wells? I fucking doubt it because everybody's been saying that they have no more territory. They may have an insurgent presence, but is it really accurate to show them still in control of land, of those two oil fields?

They don't control shit, SAA has combed the desert many times, they just have an effective insurgent presence in the desert.
The oil fields (actually a gas field) are definitely SAA controlled.
so why is it still shown as under Daesh control on the map then? Should be removed
You mean the Hoholmap?
Mostly because they are lazy, stupid and anti government. Having blobs around until the end of time makes them look incompetent I would think.
I agree, the wikipedia crowd are autistic because the Syrian MoD never announced the capture of the gas field.
In reality though all the deserts in Iraq and Syria shouldn't be colored at all besides the roads and points of interest in them because nobody really controls the deserts.
No I mean the shitmap

Meh, imo you shouldn't bother inventing a new rule for only this area when it could be applied on so many other places.
Yeah a good chunk of the map would have those strips then I'd have to figure out boundaries and correct for boundaries and shit. Too much work.
Syria Shitmupdates - ISIS is no more edition.
Do the Toubou militias really control the southeast of the country though? If I remember correctly Haftar took back everything from them, and I don't really see any landmarks or anything in your map (even the grid that signifies a rural presence). Is it really accurate to show them still in control of that area?

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency in Aleppo, a number of “enemy airstrikes” struck the Shiekh Najjar District of Aleppo city, causing many explosions in this industrial area.
According to most local sources, the explosions occurred between the Shiekh Najar industrial area and Aleppo's airport, south of the city.

What's interesting is the claim that theyre launched from the east…
>>214297>What's interesting is the claim that theyre launched from the east…
Which can only mean they came from SDF areas, which can only mean one of two things:
1. They flew through Jordan, up through Iraq, and came into SDF areas.
2. They flew Turkey, and down into SDF areas.

Now the question is how the Kurds managed to make a tank that looks shittier than a WWII New Zealander tank made out of corrugated metal
If it's IAF, option 1 definitely.
It's a long ass flight though, which is why i'm leaning towards not IAF.>>214304>how the Kurds managed to make a tank that looks shittier than a WWII New Zealander tank

Depends what route you take, flying along the Syrian border in Jordan, Iraq and SDFistan is just as long.
You know what this means? It potentially means all the roads to Maymana are cut.
That's Operation Opera.
yeah and i pointed out that israelis weren't afraid of big hauls, since you said that it was too long of a flight to suggest israeli involvement>>214306>It's a long ass flight though, which is why i'm leaning towards not IAF.
never meant to show that they can refuel since that wasn't part of your statement
God help me, I lost too hard to this>>214349>Tanf
Unless they went flying through Iraq. Even then, It's much simpler to just take off from SDF areas, they've got airbases for it there.
>>214346>you said that it was too long of a flight to suggest israeli involvement
Does "leaning towards" mean "absolutely convinced" in your dictionary?>>214348
Maybe i am maybe i'm not, there's one i'm not though, and that's wrong.
I'm sorry, but did the IAF already lose? Oh, that's right. The Civil War isn't even over yet. In fact, it's only 2019. Does not having the Iranian withdrawal at 2019 count as a loss? Is that what you're saying? Because if you're saying that I can assure you that you're wrong. Why would you make this general when the war is still on? The Israels are still playing right now and they have been the best airforce in the Middle East for how many years now? They're playing one of the worst armies in the Middle East who just happen to have a lead because they're feeding off the energy of Putin and Iran. But you know what? They still fucking suck. The Israel are one of the best fucking airforces in the world, they destroyed 500 Warehouses last year and would of kicked out Iran if Putin didn't cuck us from Greater Israel. Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you make retarded generals like this. You know why? Because you're going to be embarrassed when the IAF wins and someone bumps this generals. Oh look at that, the Israelis just blew up another ammo storage north of Damascus, just like we did last year. Are you a fucking drunk? Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never make a general on this board again and I'm fucking serious. I almost have a feeling you're the only guy making all these anti-Israeli topics because you're a faggot hater who doesn't like the IDF because they're good. Fuck you, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll these fucking generals on the board, like I give a fuck. It's so easy to spot out your threads now, you're a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don't you try to be a good poster? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make a topic like this. That's just you, you're always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.
Tonight’s attack was planned to be bigger
The AD units in east Aleppo CS downed 7 missiles/bombs
Can we consider it as a successful interception No
Can Israel keep using east Syria yes, as long as the US stays there.

Using their Sukhoi jets, the Russian Air Force reportedly bombarded Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions in the Jaba Al-Zawiya region, which has long been under the control of the jihadist rebels.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-russian-air-force-launches-heavy-airstrikes-over-western-idlib/

That's too ambiguous. Regions could refer to villages, or areas of villages, or groupings of villages, or even districts.
And with no names other than Lower Shabelle, I can't work with this.

thx. Also b0ss can I habe a Libyan shitmap pls? Haftar started an offensive to end it once and for allhttps://www.reuters.com/article/us-libya-security/eastern-libya-forces-move-west-triggering-alert-in-tripoli-idUSKCN1RF1LQ?il=0https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/04/libyan-strongman-khalifa-haftar-orders-forces-advance-west-190403155045917.html
Also with regards to Libya are you sure the Touhou militias still control the extreme south of the country? There's not even any markers on the map for them anymore, IIRC Haftar ended up capturing all their lands
suriyak showed them controlling the Chadian border and he's pretty reliable.
Russia may offer China and Turkey the new Su-57 stealth jet
Last week, Rostec director of international cooperation and regional policy Viktor Kladov was quoted by Jane’s Defense Weekly as saying that in the coming weeks, Russian President Vladimir Putin may sign off on sales of the Su-57E, an export variant of Sukhoi’s new Su-57 stealth fighter.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/russia-may-offer-china-and-turkey-the-new-su-57-stealth-jet/

Hey Doc, what are your thoughts on Bouteflika resigning and how it bodes for Algeria's future?
Yes, I'm aware he was old as fuck and probably wasn't gonna live to the 2020s, but the military seems to have been the party that instigated his resignation so could we see Algeria come under official military rule?
I remember you saying that Algerians look down upon Islamists due to the civil war of the 90s, but is it completely out of the question for them to try something to appear relevant? Or has Algerian security thoroughly shredded them?
And what do you think the West will do about his resignation? What would be the course of action you would expect them to take in Algeria, if any?
>>215310>fat Evangelical retard thinks Turkey is going to invade still
lmao they can just infiltrate a bunch of moderate beheaders that are already sympathized by people in the region thanks to Kurdish dumbassery and the region will go to hell
>>215311>Hey Doc, what are your thoughts on Bouteflika resigning and how it bodes for Algeria's future?
honestly i didn't expect so from the establishment, i thought they'd push him till he's dead then replace him with an interim president until they can figure out another placeholder puppet>but the military seems to have been the party that instigated his resignation
duh, they're the one who put him in charge after the coup in the 90's, they've always been in charge
so could we see Algeria come under official military rule?
officially? no they're smart enough to avoid such unnecessary direct rule when they can get a civilian puppet to do their bidding>I remember you saying that Algerians look down upon Islamists due to the civil war of the 90s, but is it completely out of the question for them to try something to appear relevant? Or has Algerian security thoroughly shredded them?
they always try, lately during the protest they tried to ride the wave to get some popularity but all in all they've been neutered and the only reason they're still allowed is to better control them (as in it's easier to anticipate their moves when they're in the open with official political parties than if they were working underground). All of their members are under close surveillance so the only type of islamist that there is is the morsi type (ie soft version)>And what do you think the West will do about his resignation?
don't know, after what we've seen in libya i thought they'd put more pressure on Algeria, but since Algeria is more open to the west than libya i think they don't see it as a priority for regime change™ and would rather focus on softer influence through trade and diplomacy>What would be the course of action you would expect them to take in Algeria, if any?
my best guess would be another puppet set in place by the military establishment in order to continue as it was with bouteflika (ie the military leadership calling the shots on important issues and letting smaller politicians be independent in their decision making for less important issues) thus making the west continue it's non interventionist approach and leaving Algeria alone
MOTHER-FUCKING LIBYA GAINZ ALREADY!

The fuck is this civil war?
Can the do similar in other areas as well?
Depends on the resistance, but I guess people are mostly tired of militias and wish for a kind of "normality".
>all those Libya gainz
Holy hell, we might see those elections sooner than expected.
But why not going for Misrata and the oil half-moon?
how is this relevant? or is this a trick to get us distracted from finding out it's photoshoped?
or did you mean something else?
the point is>why the fuck would they point out that specific barrier
so being thorough i also come up with the only thing that could make sense in this case, there could other explanations but i don't see any rn
never said that "israeli can never bomb syria, SAA AA stronk", but that's a weird thing to point out
ok, sorry i misunderstood ya.>>why the fuck would they point out that specific barrier
your'e right, I don't know, probably just beefing up their press release so it sounds more serious and "thorough" I guess.
don't forget ISI are israeli company, so I bet they receive intel from the IDF despite them being a civilian company - in order to create good PR. it's "strange" how they always pinpoint the specific locations hit to a building level so quickly everytime.
btw i thought it would be a good idea to have al irani set a paypal account in order to send him some money to help him during these hard times
does he post on the other place? if so, could you tell him about this idea if you catch him there

pretty much, but even more neutered than hamas, thay can't even sneeze without the intelligence services knowing it
the real threat (read AQMI/ISIS) don't operate in the civilian life (as in mixed with the regular population/sleeper cells), they're in a semi nomad style working far from civilization in order to not be under such hard surveillance>So more status quo.
The conflicting reports of Brigade 27 base under GNA and LNA control were because the LNA briefly captured it but then the GNA immediately recaptured it.

btw i just saw a video of israel and realized that a lot of israelis (maybe mainly mizrahi) look like arabs and i couldn't tell them apart, so how do you people deal with this issue?
well Mizrahi (and to an extent many Sepharadi too) are basically Arab Jews. they became Arabized over a long time living under Arab rule, so it makes sense the genetic makeup is pretty much the same. in fact they like to play the race card when it suits them. ironically enough they are usually right-wing/anti arab themselves (68% of Likud voters are Mizrahim).
especially Moroccans, which is quite funny since they always like to brag about Morocco.
I dunno, some sort of weird denial of their self-identity. https://www.haaretz.com/science-and-health/palestinians-and-jews-share-genetic-roots-1.5411201
>>215587>in fact they like to play the race card when it suits them
der ewige mizrahi, jewing his fellow jews
also i remember you telling me that in terms of social behaviour it was something along the lines of ashkenazi>sepharadi/ethiopian>power gap>mizrahi
is that right?
btw how does an israeli knows if he's dealing with an arab or a mizrahi from the looks? or does it not matter because mizrahi are so bad that they're treated like arabs?
is more like it. skin color is still the thing that matters the most and all above groups aren't fond of the darker ones.
>btw how does an israeli knows if he's dealing with an arab or a mizrahi from the looks?
there's subtle differences that you pick up, Arabs have slightly different looks, and they dress differently.
>or does it not matter because mizrahi are so bad that they're treated like arabs?
kek, nah, you gotta remember they make around half the population. they feel comfortable, the discrimination is mostly in lucrative positions aka tv/police/unis/docs/artists etc. in day to day life there isn't much bias. society has also become quite intertwined due to the idf where everyone serve together anyway.

Breaking: Syrian Army launches new ground attack to advance in west Aleppo
BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a new ground assault in the western part of Aleppo this evening, a military source in the provincial capital told Al-Masdar.
According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Division and Republican Guard stormed the jihadist positions at the eastern axis of the Aleppo Research Center.
The military source said the Syrian Arab Army is attempting to advance to the Aleppo Research Center in a bit to retake the entire provincial capital from the militant groups.
The source in Aleppo said the Syrian military hit several militant targets in the towns of Khan Al-Assal, Kafr Hamra, and Ma’arat Aghrek.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/breaking-syrian-army-launches-new-ground-attack-to-advance-in-west-aleppo/

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a surprise assault against the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham in the western part of Aleppo city last night.
Led by the 4th Division and Republican Guard, the Syrian military began the assault by attempting to bypass Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s positions at the eastern axis of the strategic Aleppo Scientific Research Center.
A fierce battle would ensue between the two warring parties at the Scientific Research Center; this would result in some casualties for the Syrian Arab Army and the militant forces.
However, the Syrian Arab Army was unable to make any progress at this front as the militants managed to foil the main assault on the Scientific Research Center.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/syrian-armys-first-attempted-advance-in-western-aleppo-fails-to-yield-any-gains/

Iran’s top military commander says the country and its neighbor Iraq have agreed to cooperate in the area of air defense to fend off the challenges facing their respective air spaces.
Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri made the announcement to reporters following a meeting in Tehran with his visiting Iraqi counterpart, Lieutenant General Othman al-Ghanimi, Tasnim News Agency reported on Sunday.
The cooperation, Baqeri said, will be aimed at confronting aerial threats.
The meeting addressed “the integrated defense of Iran and Iraq’s skies, because we might sense threats coming from the direction of [our] western borders,” he added.
“Accordingly, it was agreed that the countries’ air defense sectors work together and more coordination be made in this regard,” the Iranian commander said.
Baqeri said the two sides also agreed on potential training cooperation, the transferring of Iran’s defensive experiences to Iraq, and joint military exercises. Agreements on these, he added, will be finalized during a future visit by the Iraqi military chief.
Ghanimi was in the Iranian capital as part of a delegation accompanying Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi. On Saturday, the delegation met with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani.
Baqeri cited the Iraqi commander as saying that Baghdad would be exercising stricter control on the United States’ military presence on its soil.
The American forces are only there to train Iraqis and their activities are under the Iraqi Army’s oversight, Baqeri added, citing al-Ghanimi.
In his meeting with Ghanimi, Ayatollah Khamenei had stressed that the Iraqi government should make sure that US forces leave Iraq as soon as possible.https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2019/04/07/592803/Iran-Iraq-air-defense-cooperation-aerial-defense

Might ask JJ for details.
HoR, LNA GNA GNC ABC This shit isn’t so bad once I installed a word replacer for the fucking acronyms to something less incomprehensible.
i was operating under the assumption that the westernization/bad translation of the various factions names, coupled with the alphabet soup acronyms are there to ''make'' it incomprehensible jibberish. if its hard to follow along at a glance, thats often more than enough to ensure that the majority doesnt even bother to look into it.
I go with "FLA" - "Free Libyan Army" for the greens in this war (anyone other than Hafter). Just because it's easier to remember.
I’m split on giving any of the sides green, which is tied to the big man up stairs.
Hafter obviously doesn’t deserve it and shouldn’t be allowed to have green because of his treachery and CIA stoogery. The rabble are even further from Ghadaffi and can’t have it either.
Personally I use blue for the collective retards, and red for LNA/HoR>>216082
I unironically don’t ‘now why they would bother covering anything up, I support HoR but Hafter is a shitbag and spent 30 years as an American stooge only to destroy his nation. Neither side is against America or pro Russia and I don’t get it. (LNA is pro Egypt through)
>it's a bibi wins again episode
sorry to disappoint, and I'd love to be proven wrong in the future, but it pretty much turned out to be nonsesne. arab media is still quoting the original 2015 PR from Genie when they said they found shitload of oil, but the sixth (and last) drill made by Genie last year failed and they stopped all works there. it was basically a PR stunt to get more investor money (they have other drilling projects across the country). there's probably *some* oil reserves there but it's shit quality (shale) and not economical to extract and process.
also all the ecofags started protesting it as it involves fracking.http://www.adamteva.org.il/?categoryid=1113&articleid=2068
So I doubt Trump's decision had anything to do with it.
p.s. the Golan plateau extends to Syria, if there's anything in the Israeli controlled part it's quite likely there's some in the Syrian part as well.
<Isn't Golan quite a potent thermal springs site?
Yes, mainly https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamat_Gader
don't think it has far-reaching
If you wanna know the real reason, pic related makes it easy to understand:
"Strategic importance of Golan Heights
Control of Golan Heights is critical to both Israel and Syria and the reason lies in its topography. The area borders Israel, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. The Heights gives a view deep into Syrian territory, including Damascus, which lies just 60 km to the north. From the heights, one can also look deep into Israel.
This is why Syria was able to bombard Israel using artillery and the reason why it wants to retain control over the Golan Heights. From the top, Israeli military can keep an eye on any defense movement emanating from the Syrian side, to prevent an encore of the 1967 surprise attack.
Another reason is Mount Hernon. The tallest mountain in the area rises to a height of 2,743.2 meters and is home to the Israeli winter ski resort. More importantly, it remains a source of fresh water collected in the natural catchment area that feeds into the Jordan River. The river in turn caters to around 30% of Israel’s water needs.
The land in the lower regions is very fertile, unlike other parts of the region, and Israel has been developing the area for crop cultivation and vineyards. The Sea of Galilee has been an important source of fresh water for Israel and so it was reluctant to hand back the eastern shores to Syrian control."

Nope, there's still 3 Indictments against him waiting for a hearing. he said he won't resign regardless thus further infuriating the leftist base. since they can't seem to beat him in election that's pretty much their only remaining hope. otherwise he will be PM until he dies.

I mean, if they did it coz they are fed up with their folks dying in Yemen, and being general lackeys for the bigger players then good luck Sudaniggers.
I mean if Sisi&co. are at the helm of "smooth handover of power" don't epxect a positive outcome. Not in a long run, that is.
So I guess, they will still die for KSA in Yemen.
come on now you know full on well that aint no know thing such as democracy (atleast as understood by Europeans and the US standards) going to take charge here.>Sisi&co. are at the helm of "smooth handover of power" don't epxect a positive outcome.
Well the article does say that the Sudanese generals didnt even bother contacting the Egyptians rather they were talking to KSA and Qatar regarding the whole situation.
Also what do you think about Russian PMCs reportedly deployed to Sudan, and how does it correlate to whole Russia-US power struggle in Africa?https://www.reuters.com/article/us-russia-sudan-contractors/russian-contractors-are-training-the-army-in-sudan-says-moscow-idUSKCN1PH23Thttps://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20190114-sudan-denies-russian-mercenaries-involvement-in-quashing-protests/https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/russian-private-contractors-active-sudan-during-protest-crackdown
Interesting, didn't knew about it.
mutts&ivans is a one thing, chinks on the other hand are rather quiet on African topic.
And yeah Pingu, I know that the whole may-mays of change is for another group to seize the power, question remains who will it be.
by fed up i meant that the role of the army in the local politics could be seen as challenged by the increasing influence of mercenaries
they wouldn't want any politician to use private armies to oust the army's tight grip over the country
Damn, they're done for a while now.
In other news>Egypt suspends Suez Canal crossing for Iranian oil vessels sailing to Syria.
Sisi being a hoe of the Great Babylon, but of course..
here are some few
ibn auf (vice president) announces that bashar has been arrested and thousands of protestors continue their sit-in
The forces of the Declaration of Freedom and Change reject the statement of the army and hold the sit-in
millions celebrate the rescue (as in intervention of the military to oust bashir) with military music
The army is uprooting the regime and arresting al-Bashir
btw, wouldn't it be in the interest of egypt to get sudan in it's sphere of influence in order to have a better leverage against ethiopia in their nile dam conflict?
watch out for that plot twist in the future, sisi may try something
oh sorry i didn't see you marked me in the post
in my opinion it seems that the army is trying to seize power or at least capitalize on the protest to get a better influence over the country while the people wanted to get rid of the old establishment
are they (the army) doing in on their own or are they doing it with the help of foreign powers (who help spark the protest) who will seek to get certain privileges granted for them in exchange of their help? maybe, especially when you consider this isn't the first time the west took a particular interest in sudan, they already did so by heavily shilling for the separation of south sudan
also good to note that russian mercs had a certain presence in the country before (siding with bashir and helping him to deal with protests https://www.unian.info/world/10404057-russian-mercenaries-help-put-down-sudan-protests-media.html
) so maybe they're trying to cock block russian expansion in sudan with the help of corrupt sudanese generals

Yeah well, when I was in Rome last October it was infested with niggers, so that's that.
I visited Europe with my family when I was about 11.
In Rome there was a nigger dressed up as a gladiator. He asked if we'd like a photo and we said "yes." Thinking it was very nice of him.
But then after we took it, he demanded money from us.
We refused but it got very ugly.
His actions, that fateful day, made me racist.
Based niggers keeping the right opinion about themselves.
If the nigger had even just two brain cells to rub together, he would have asked for money beforehand and likely would have gotten some. But, this is
a nigger we're talking about. The odds of that happening are slim to none.
Anyways, back to lurking.

Absolutely disgusting. Israel trading memory of human death to straight money.

You've probably heard, but Notre-Dame of Ile-de-France and al-Aqsa mosque burned at the same time. I'm not saying some Hugo guy knew it will happen, but it's highly symbolic.
Maybe it's not interesting from the perspective of following the Syrian conflict, nevertheless if French prosecution announces it's got nothing to do with Muslim fags in France, the consequences for France/it's foreign policies might be quite wild. Libya too.
I said Saleh not Suheil, I remember when he tried to coup the Houthis he got fucking shot and there was a pic of him after he got shot and someone made a thonk meme off of it, do you have that?
also there was this other meme I saw a while back, it was memeing on the Hudaydah battle and how the UAE kept saying they captured the airport when they didn't
It was basically a satellite image of Hudaydah but it had the airport shopped all around the outskirts and shit, anyone have it?

Russia to Lease Syria's Tartus Port For Economic Purposes - Russian Vice PM

Syrian Arab Army units on Friday destroyed hideouts and vehicles for Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists in retaliation for their breaches of the de-escalation zone agreement in Idleb.
New’s reporter said that following careful recon operations, army units targeted hideouts and fortified positions of Jabhat al-Nusra with concentrated artillery and rocket strikes in the towns of Jarjanaz, Talmens, Tahtaya, and Oum Jalal in the southeastern countryside of Idleb.
The reporter said the strikes resulted in destroying hideouts and vehicles for the terrorists and inflicted losses upon them.

>Trump Endorses an Aspiring Libyan Strongman, Reversing Policy
President Trump on Friday abruptly reversed American policy toward Libya, issuing a statement publicly endorsing an aspiring strongman in his battle to depose the United Nations-backed government.
The would-be strongman, Khalifa Hifter, launched a surprise attack on the Libyan capital, Tripoli, more than two weeks ago. Relief agencies said Thursday that more than 200 people had been killed in the battle, and in recent days Mr. Hifter’s forces have started shelling civilian neighborhoods.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement a few days after Mr. Hifter’s militia began its attack that “the administration at the highest levels” had made clear that “we oppose the military offensive” and “urge the immediate halt to these military operations.” Most Western governments and the United Nations have also condemned the attack and demanded a retreat.
Mr. Trump, however, told Mr. Hifter almost the opposite, the White House said Friday.
A militia leader who has given himself the title of Field Marshal, Mr. Hifter, 75, has long sought to portray his fight for power over Libya — including his advance on Tripoli — as a battle against “terrorism.” In the statement on Friday the White House said Mr. Trump had called Mr. Hifter on Monday to endorse that campaign.
Mr. Trump called “to discuss ongoing counterterrorism efforts and the need to achieve peace and stability in Libya,” the White House said in the statement. “The President recognized Field Marshal Hifter’s significant role in fighting terrorism and securing Libya’s oil resources, and the two discussed a shared vision for Libya’s transition to a stable, democratic political system.”
Analysts said Mr. Trump’s endorsement would embolden Mr. Hifter and hamper United Nations efforts to call for a cease-fire. It could also increase the likelihood that his regional sponsors like Egypt or the United Arab Emirates might intervene on his behalf, as each has in the past in Libya.
The policy reversal came as a surprise in part because Mr. Hifter’s forces also appear to be losing ground. His promises of a quick victory have proved false, and his forces appear outmaneuvered by those aligned against them. Most analysts say that he has little hope of exerting his authority over all of Libya any time soon, so his continued campaign may only prolong the country’s instability.
In the meantime, the battle for Tripoli has now diverted the attention of most of the Libyan militias that had been engaged in combating the fighters of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, said Frederic Wehrey, an expert on Libya at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
“It is nuts,” Mr. Wehrey said of Mr. Trump’s statement. “Even judging by the hard-nosed American goals of stabilizing the flow of oil and combating terrorism, this is completely shocking.”
Mr. Trump’s endorsement is the clearest evidence yet of his preference for authoritarianism as the best response to the problems of the Middle East, a sharp departure from the professions of support for democracy by previous American presidents of both parties.
Although this is not the first time Mr. Trump has praised an Arab strongman, his expression of support for Mr. Hifter appears to be the first time that Mr. Trump has embraced an aspiring authoritarian who is not yet in power and may never get there.
A former general under Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi and also a former C.I.A. client, Mr. Hifter had been living in exile in the United States but returned to Libya during the Arab Spring uprisings in 2011. He first declared his intention to seize power in 2014, when Libya’s nascent transitional government was struggling to establish its authority over freewheeling militias around the country.
Mr. Hifter vowed to rid Libya of Islamists of all kinds, and he quickly attracted support from Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. All three had aligned themselves in a regionwide campaign to crush the Muslim Brotherhood-style political movements that had appeared poised to ride Arab Spring elections to power.
Mr. Hifter has never shown a willingness to accept any civilian authority. But “he fits to a T the kind of leader Trump likes to support,” said Andrew Miller, deputy director for policy at the Project on Middle East Democracy.
Even with the extensive backing of his foreign supporters, though, Mr. Hifter has often struggled for military gains, taking three years to control the city of Benghazi. Although he now controls most of eastern Libya, his surprise advance on Tripoli has united the powerful militias from the western cities of Misrata and Zintan against him.
“I don’t think Hifter can do it,” said Lisa Anderson, a political scientist who has studied Libya and who was the president of the American University in Cairo during the uprisings of 2011. Although he may present himself as a strongman, she said, “he can’t actually control that part of the country and he will continue to face existential challenges there for the foreseeable future.”https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/19/world/middleeast/trump-libya-khalifa-hifter.html

Would be funny if the Russians start backing GNA now. Wonder how niggas would spin that if it were to happen.

I haven't checked any msm, do they know who did this and why? I would honestly be disappointed if it was solely mudshits REEing and not some Sri Lanka island ethnic civil war rising again.
Reports are too early. I'd guess either Muslims or Tamals.
and yeah, by support, I just meant that that's now the main side he hopes will win, but you're right, no confirmation of any real physical support as of yet (but one can only hope)
>>218669>I just meant that that's now the main side he hopes will win
Why care about what backtracking, Israel-Cuck Trump says, he will get played in the end by the machinations of the US State in the end, and they (CIA, CENTCOM, w/e) are playing both sides of this war seemingly, to ensure they win no matter the outcome.

>Saudi Arabia, UAE grant $3 billion of support to Sudan
DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) said on Sunday they had agreed to send Sudan $3 billion (2.3 billion pounds) worth of aid, throwing a lifeline to its new military leaders after protests led to the ouster of President Omar al-Bashir.
The two countries will deposit $500 million with the Sudanese central bank and send the rest in the form of food, medicine and petroleum products, their state news agencies said in parallel statements.
“This is to strengthen its financial position, ease the pressure on the Sudanese pound and increase stability in the exchange rate,” the Saudi Press Agency said.
It is the first major publicly announced assistance to Sudan from Gulf states in several years.
The two Gulf states have ties with the head of Sudan’s Transitional Military Council, Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo, through their participation in the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen.
Sudan has been suffering from a deepening economic crisis that has caused cash shortages and long queues at bakeries and petrol stations.
Over the last few years, Sudan’s cash-short government expanded money supply to cover the cost of expensive subsidies on fuel, wheat and pharmaceuticals, causing annual inflation of 73 percent and the Sudanese pound to plunge against the dollar.https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-sudan-protests/saudi-arabia-uae-grant-3-billion-of-support-to-sudan-idUKKCN1RX0EV

>Libya PM Says Foreigners Are Arming Strongman’s Tripoli Push
The leader of Libya’s internationally recognized government said foreign backers have been arming strongman Khalifa Haftar since he launched an offensive to take the capital, Tripoli, and warned of a proxy war.
Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj declined to identify the countries. But states including Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Russia have provided weapons in the past to the leader of the self-styled Libyan National Army, the country’s largest and most organized force.
The offensive, launched about two weeks ago, has stalled on Tripoli’s outskirts, and efforts to mediate a truce have been unsuccessful. Sarraj says he won’t negotiate until Haftar withdraws his forces, and that he’s disappointed by the muted international reaction to the assault.
U.S. President Donald Trump spoke to Haftar last week, recognizing his role in combating terrorism, as Washington and Russia stymied a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire.
Analysts said the language suggested a reversal by Washington, which had initially demanded the withdrawal of Haftar’s forces. But Sarraj said in an interview on Monday that the U.S. administration informed him it remains opposed to the assault.
“We deal with statements from the State Department and direct contacts with the American administration and the message is very clear: They are not pleased with the attack on Tripoli," he said.
Without a quick resolution, the conflict threatens to turn into a proxy war pitting Haftar’s backers against countries such as Qatar and Turkey that have supported Sarraj and allied militias in Misrata, about 120 miles (190 kilometers) east of Tripoli.
"Weapons and equipment have not stopped reaching Haftar, before and after the offensive," Sarraj said. Asked about the possibility of a proxy war in the North African OPEC state, he replied, “Of course there are fears.”
Libya, which is split between his Tripoli-based Government of National Accord and the rival administration in the east that backs Haftar, is under a United Nations arms embargo, and Sarraj voiced frustration with the militia commander’s alleged advantage.
"The aggressor party has open channels to import weapons and equipment and all types of technology while the Government of National Accord cannot defend itself," Sarraj said, referring to his own administration. "How do you expect the Government of National Accord to commit to this and not think of alternative options to defend itself?"
Sarraj did not say whether he and his allies were receiving support. The LNA accuses Turkey and Qatar of backing his forces.
Haftar’s offensive came as a complete surprise, the prime minister said. The two men had been preparing to meet in Libya on the week of the offensive ahead of a planned UN-sponsored conference on April 14. The campaign -- which Haftar has cast as a fight against terrorist groups -- began while UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was visiting Tripoli.
Sarraj cast doubt that Haftar could be a partner for future talks, noting that the two had held an amiable conversation about negotiations just days before the offensive began. "He wants the whole cake," he said.https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-04-22/libya-s-sarraj-says-haftar-s-foreign-backers-arming-offensive
From the US side, as we see it is just Trump talking without even checking with his administration to see how he should think, something we have seen numerous times in the past, most notably when he differed from Tillerson on North Korea. On the Russian side we see the typical "let's be nice to both sides and see who ends up with the upper hand" strategy, which makes a muddy but manageable situation at times as we have seen in Syria when they seemingly play with all parties, Syrians, Turks, Iranians, and most importantly Israelis. I don't care much for that strategy, it has its benefits but I think being lukewarm in between individual entities creates confusion for all involved. For sure the Russians will always have a preferred party to default to like they bow to the Israelis in Syria-related issues. I guess the biggest question on who the Russians will side with most on the Libya issue is who do the Israelis like most, and since that method is America's position as well, how do you paint a picture that you are still opposed to the Americans even though your preferred country in all mid-east matters is the same one? And to go further than that, they will string Hafter along as long as they can before it becomes a problem for them. We see their typical "lets send the Wagner boys in to help the LNA" this isn't surprising, Wagner troops are expendable mercs, and if they get killed or do something out of line the Russians will claim ignorance and confirm that they have nothing to do with the Russian government, which technically speaking is true, but in reality everyone knows the truth.
Of course the Russians may eventually attempt to set up a dialogue in Libya between the LNA and GNC, mirroring the Sochi talks, although I don't see them having the sway to accomplish much in the same way they did by using this strategy in Syria. Of course the UN will be able to factor more heavily in any future dialogue, being that they directly and openly back the GNC, and the Russians will abstain votes and attempt to pass resolutions "in favor" of the LNA without going so far as to totally alienate the GNC at the same time. Maybe the real method to Russia's goals in any of these situations is just to sow as much confusion and doubt as to who they really side with without having to answer to the consequences, without having to be totally committed to one entity or another, and then when one of those parties ends up victorious the Russians slide in and demonstrate that they were acting in the best interests of whoever wins the conflict had their backing the whole time. Me saying this critically of the Russians isn't to say what the US does in these situations is any better, honestly I think if either America or Russia gave a shit about any of these countries in any humanitarian sense they would back off and let the stronger party be the victor without any help, either way you look at it people are going to die and someone is going to have to suffer. We both should stop using these countries and people like so many melanin enriched chess pieces, but that will never happen because there is no gain that can be controlled by either country, we both seek to have a guiding hand in any future economic benefits, so we can dictate the terms without needing to rely on the chess pieces to make up their own minds.>>218811

Damn…. that's deep.
Islam isn't even a very good form of fascism. Look at the """rebel""" muslim groups for proof of that. Every Muslim is a child-fucking dishonest and untrustworthy savage who'll stab your back and rape your daughter as soon as you let him, unless he's too pants-wettingly terrified of what you'll do to him and everyone he actually loves to even consider fucking with you.
Every Muslim dreams of being on top and/or getting away with working against the collective and top dogs for their own benefit.
No mind touched by Islam's vile tendrils can be saved. Deus vult, purge the wicked, turn the land into cheap housing, solar panels, and factories.

>The new proxy war in Syria: Iran and Turkey vs. Saudi Arabia and Russia
BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – As if the Syrian Conflict couldn’t get any more complicated, a new proxy war is brewing between several foreign powers in the northern part of the country.
Speaking from Damascus on the condition of anonymity, a government source told Al-Masdar that two new alliances have emerged in northern Syria, with one led by Iran and Turkey and the other Saudi Arabia and Russia.
According to the source, Turkey and Iran have forged a pact to not only carry out a joint operation in northern Iraq, but also, potentially, in northern Syria.
Meanwhile, Russia and Saudi Arabia are attempting to work out a deal that would see the Syrian government and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces reach a peaceful settlement.
Saudi Arabia maintains close ties with several Arab tribes allied to the SDF, including the Shammar Tribe, who arguably the most powerful tribe in northern Syria.
Syrian Oil Crisis
Iran is the biggest foreign supplier of oil to the Syrian Arab Republic; however, due to the ongoing sanctions against both countries, Tehran has been unable to send their oil tankers to the ports in Latakia and Tartous.
Enter Turkey, who, depsite being opposed to the Syrian government, is working with Tehran to possibly find an alternative way to ship oil to Syria.
According to the source, one way to get Iranian oil to Syria is through Turkey’s western ports.
Iran is allowed to ship oil to Turkey as long as their tankers do not deliver anything to Syria.
In turn, the Syrian government would pay money to transport the oil from Turkey through the rebel-held areas.
The source pointed out that following the Iranian Foreign Minister’s visit to Damascus last week, he immediately flew to Ankara where he met with his Turkish counterparts to deliver messages from the Syrian government.
Saudi Arabia is aruably one of the most powerful countries in the Middle East and one of the key peace brokers in nearly every conflict in the region.
Russia, who maintains a strong relationship with the Gulf kingdom, has often relied on the Saudi government to facilitate peace talks between the countries in the Middle East.
The Saudi government is also at odds with Turkey and Qatar, especially after the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi last October.
Seeing an opportunity to possibly end the hostilities between the Syrian and Saudi governments, the Russians are facilitating a potential rapproachment between Damascus and Riyadh.
The Syrian government needs reconstruction funds and they need Saudi Arabia’s influence to possibly broker a deal with the U.S.
While Syria is a close ally to Iran, they have faced incredible opposition from Turkey and Qatar, who are arguably the two biggest supporters of the Syrian government’s enemies.
Turkey, Iran, and Qatar have their own alliance in the Middle East, which is mostly focused on the Palestinian cause.
However, Syria has benefited little from this alliance, and with the ongoing fuel crisis and lack of reconstruction funds, they may choose the path set forth by the Russians.
Russia and Turkey
The armed forces of Russia and Turkey are currently working together to maintain peace in northwestern Syria.
However, the Russian military is reaching its breaking point, especially with the ongoing presence of rebel groups inside the demilitarized zone.
The rebel groups were supposed to withdraw from the demilitarized zone last October, per the September 17th Sochi Agreement – they have refused to do so.
Turkey contends that the Syrian military is to blame for the violence because they attack the rebel groups that refused to adhere to the Sochi Agreement.
Both the Syrian and Russian armed forces hold the rebel forces in violation of the agreement and consider any jihadist presence in the demilitarized zone as a clear breach of any deal.
With Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham’s latest attacks in northwestern Hama and western Aleppo, it is very likely that the Syrian government, with help from Russia, will carry out an operation to clear these areas.
The Syrian government has a difficult decision to make, one of which could alter the course of the war.
According to the source in Damascus, the government sees the prospects of rapproachment with Saudi Arabia as more alluring than joining Iran in a coalition of countries sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood was at war with the Syrian government for several years until they were forced into exile following the Siege of Hama in 1982.
Both Qatar and Turkey have lended their support to the Muslim Brotherhood during the Arab Spring and to the Syrian opposition.
Saudi Arabia and their Gulf allies view the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization; this is also the case with Egypt, who the Syrian government has relied on for third party talks.
The Syrian government’s potential decision may not sit well with Iran, but at this juncture in the war, the sanctions and lack of funding are taking a toll on Damascus.https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/the-new-proxy-war-in-syria-iran-and-turkey-vs-saudi-arabia-and-russia/
>Iran Guard ship spotted off Libyan coast
A ship with ties to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards has been monitored off Libya’s western city of Misrata, the self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA) has said.
“The vessel is involved in suspicious activities,” Ahmad Al Mesmari, the LNA spokesman said in televised remarks.
This month, the US designated the Iranian Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist group, imposing massive-ranging economic and travel sanctions on the powerful military arm of Tehran. The sanctions also cover companies and individuals dealing with the corps.
Misrata is under the control of a Tripoli-based government, supported by Qatar and Turkey, which are allies of Iran.
The ship is owned by an Iranian company, which is also under US sanctions, according to media reports.
The vessel, whose cargo is unclear yet, arrived at Misrata five days after it left a port in Bulgaria.
The LNA forces, commanded by Libya’s military strongman Khalifa Haftar, have been fighting for three weeks against militias linked to the Tripoli government in order to seize the capital and expel terrorist groups there.
Iran is increasingly under international pressure to stop its destabilising acts in the Arab region.
On Monday, the US declared ending sanctions waivers for Iranian oil imports as part of Washington’s stepped-up campaign against the Tehran regime.
Last year, US President Donald Trump re-imposed sanctions on Iran after he pulled out his country of a 2015 international nuclear deal with Tehran.https://gulfnews.com/world/mena/iran-guard-ship-spotted-off-libyan-coast-1.63525149

The policy remains the same. Neutrality between Iran and Saudia. Working with both but not taking sides or supporting just enough to not piss off the other. The prime ministers is currently trying to improve relations with neighboring countries to get business going. What he wanted to say was that both of our countries land has been used against one another by non state actors, in an effort to reduce tensions(feb 13 attack in Iran which they blamed on Pakistan while from our side this was the statement* released by the Foreign ministry just before the Prime Ministers visit to Iran) and improve relations considering this was the statement released by the Foreign ministry just before his visit to Iran.
But there seems to be an interlocutor missing between his brain and mouth hence the only one sided statement. Check out his statement regarding japan and Germany. Now that shit was embarrassing.
thanks for the insights

>China, Russia, U.S. reach consensuses on Afghanistan issue
At the second trilateral consultation on Afghanistan held in Moscow, Chinese Special Envoy Deng Xijun, Russian Presidential Representative Zamir Kabulov, and U.S. Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad discussed the current situation in Afghanistan and its ongoing peace process.
The three parties emphasized that they respect the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of Afghanistan and the country's right to choose its own path of development, and called on foreign militaries to withdraw from the country in an orderly and responsible way as part of the peace process.
They said they recognized the strong desire of the Afghan people for a comprehensive ceasefire and urged all to take immediate and effective measures to reduce violence.
The three representatives also called on the Taliban to prevent recruitment, training and fund-raising by terrorist groups and to expel all terrorists, and encouraged peace talks between the Taliban and a representative Afghan delegation involving the government.
They suggested the Afghan government and the Taliban should take all necessary measures to wipe out the threat of drugs in the country.
The three parties also agreed to continue their consultations, and to decide via diplomatic channels the time and participating countries for the next meeting in the Chinese capital of Beijing, in a bid to further promote the Afghan peace process, for which they will stay in contact.
The first trilateral consultation was held a month ago in Washington, during which the representatives discussed ways to promote peace, prosperity, and security in Afghanistan.http://chinaplus.cri.cn/news/china/9/20190426/281121.html

>>219440>Joint Statement on Trilateral Meeting on Afghan Peace Process
The text of the following statement was released by the Governments of the United States of America, Russia, and China on the occasion of the Trilateral Meeting on the Afghan Peace Process.
Representatives of the United States, China, and Russia met in Moscow on April 25, 2019, and exchanged views on the current status of the Afghan peace process. The three sides reached consensus on the following:
-The three sides respect the sovereignty, independence, and territorial integrity of Afghanistan as well as its right to choose its development path. The three sides prioritize the interests of the Afghan people in promoting a peace process.
-The three sides support an inclusive Afghan-led, Afghan-owned peace process and are ready to provide necessary assistance. The three sides encourage the Afghan Taliban to participate in peace talks with a broad, representative Afghan delegation that includes the government as soon as possible. Toward this end, and as agreed in Moscow in February 2019, we support a second round of intra-Afghan dialogue in Doha (Qatar).
-The three sides support the Afghan government efforts to combat international terrorism and extremist organizations in Afghanistan. They take note of the Afghan Taliban’s commitment to: fight ISIS and cut ties with Al-Qaeda, ETIM, and other international terrorist groups; ensure the areas they control will not be used to threaten any other country; and call on them to prevent terrorist recruiting, training, and fundraising, and expel any known terrorists.
-The three sides recognize the Afghan people's strong desire for a comprehensive ceasefire. As a first step, we call on all parties to agree on immediate and concrete steps to reduce violence.
-The three sides stress the importance of fighting illegal drug production and trafficking, and call on the Afghan government and the Taliban to take all the necessary steps to eliminate the drug threat in Afghanistan.
The three sides call for an orderly and responsible withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan as part of the overall peace process.
-The three sides call for regional countries to support this trilateral consensus and are ready to build a more extensive regional and international consensus on Afghanistan.
-The three sides agreed on a phased expansion of their consultations before the next trilateral meeting in Beijing. The date and composition of the meeting will be agreed upon through diplomatic channels.
