(Cell: 0431 138 537) Sources: Hayakal Bafna East Yemen update : Seizure of 4 trucks containing heavy arms "bound for Houthis" in Sawm, eastern inland Hadhramaut. Islah media makes a disgustingly baseless claim that much loved Hadhrami cleric Habib Umar Bin Hafidz of Dar Al Mustafa has made a deal for Houthi militia to move in force into Tarim. Oman-Yemen border : A place to watch in coming days. Things are being stirred up there, especially in Al Mahra province. Islah media claims that Oman & Iran armed forces in "civilian attire" landed tonight on Al Mahra coast, with Houthi militia. Local sources in Al Mahra told me a few days back small groups of AQAP were deploying along the Oman-Yemen border area from Hadhramaut. There was one media claim that IS militants were on the way to Al Mukalla city from the west. AQAP checkpoints are out in full force in Al Mukalla, city Hadhramaut today, pestering locals. Saleh media say AQAP just received a batch of armoured vehicles from Saudi Arabia. Statement issued by Hadhramaut tribal, civil society, local leaders give Hadi regime till end of October to remove AQAP. Or else. Shabwah governor warns that province may fall to AQAP soon. Houthis still in control of 3 districts. He has also ordered all oil production shut down : Complains that Shabwah produces 35K barrels of crude oil daily sent to Marib refinery, but no fuel gets sent back to the province in return. Saudi war on Yemen? Forget that... Tonight's Ali Abdullah Saleh speech is a brand new Yemeni declaration of war on Saudi Arabia. =============================== Source: Adnan Darwash The 60,000 Toyota 4-wheel drive pickup trucks were not dropped by US C-130 but were driven across the Syrian borders from Jordan and Turkey.

It is better for an unified Iraq and for the Kurds if USraeli agent, autocratic and corrupt Barzani, is toppled and goes to live in the USA. USraeli agents in Syria and Kurdistan are losing ground after being exposed as cheap and corrupt traitors. Iraq is the only country that recognises the Kurdish Language and Culture and considers them as an essential component of the population. Advised by the USraelis, Barzani believed that dividing and weakening Iraq is in the Kurds best interests. The complete opposite is true. The US Policy of Using and Dumping Allies included Kurdish Barzani who was abandoned despite offering MOSSAD and CIA bases in North Iraq. US-appointed Corrupt Al-Maliki and Corrupt Warlord Barzani must face trial for looting Iraq and filling their pockets from shady deals. Long-awaited rebellion against pro-USraeli corrupt autocratic warlord Barzani. Barzani profited from US occupation by selling oil to Israel. The US policy of Using and Dumping allies extends to include the discredited Syrian Mercenaries left at the mercy of Putin's war planes. Autocratic Barzani pockets oil proceeds, central government contributions while Kurdish school teachers haven't been paid for three months. The useless US-led West, the effective Putin's actions and the dramatic drop in the price of oil are having significant impacts inside Iraq. يا جميع أيش الافضل ترجيم انجليزي ل "الدنبوع"؟ By Spraying President Putin of Russia with his winner's Champaign, Lewis Hamilton increased the prestige of Putin and decreased his.

Iraqi Mobilisation force gets bombed by 'friendly' fires. 2. Unmarked planes dropping supplies to besieged ISIS forces. The short-sighted US foreign policy that undermined if not humiliated the Russians in Libya and Iraq pushed Putin to move swiftly in Syria. Saddam was indirectly encouraged by US to invade Kuwait. With tacit US approval, Saudi Arabia went into Yemen. Follow US advice and lose! In order to punish Iran and Russia, the US asked Saudi Arabia to help crashing the oil price. Now the Saudis are in an economic deep hole. Instead of keeping quiet and enjoying their wealth, the Saudis are being pushed to Take Steps Longer than their Legs in Yemen and in Syria! --- It will help US image in the M.E. if pressure is put on Israel to abide by International Law and to stop the killing of Palestinians. Despite being in an Economic Dire Strait, the Saudis can't stop supporting USraeli designs in Syria and Yemen while oil is at $50 a barrel. Ethnic divide of US-Russian attacks on ISIS. Unlike the Sunnis, Shiites of Iraq support Putin and believe US & Saudi allies created ISIS. Double Standards and Selective Morality of the US-led West have been fuelling discontent and causing violence. Question V: Why the UN doesn't interfere to stop the Saudis and their USraeli mentors from attacking Yemen and massacring Civilians? Question IV: Why the UN allows Israel to continue occupying territories from Jordan, Palestine, Syria and Lebanon which causes violence? Question III: Why IAEA doesn't put pressure on Israel to dismantle its massive arsenal of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Weapons? Question II: Why no sanctions were imposed on Israel despite being in breach of 39 UN Security Council Resolutions? Question I: Why only Jews were compensated for losses sustained during the Holocaust and not the majority of inmates who were at Auschwitz? Obama may not be a Black President But Putin is a Muslim for opening the largest mosque in Europe and for supporting Iran, Iraq and Syria. Unbelievable Palestinian Courage: Palestinian youths try to disarm Israeli SS troops braving death and disregarding their homes blown up. Nazi practices: 1. German Ueber all.

Killing with impunity Brave anti-establishment campaigner Corbyn misses meeting the Queen because he was on HOLIDAY dailym.ai/1L1xIMD via @MailOnline Putin missiles are forcing the US to cancel USraeli-Saudi plan to establishing a Sunni province in Iraq on areas currently occupied by ISIS. The US and its allies tried in vain to tie the hands of Putin in the Ukraine. But the Russian Lion's Warplanes came out roaring over Syria. It is unbelievable that the USA and Israel violate International Laws, Human Right Convention and Sovereignty of Countries, with impunity. It is Unbelievable seeing Israeli Children of Nazi atrocities abuse Palestinians in 'modern' concentration camps! Unbelievable Jewish Cowardice: Jews were led like sheep by German SS to Gas chambers. Unbelievable Palestinian Courage: Arab Youths try to disarm Israeli SS troops braving death and disregarding their homes being blown up. Who will punish the Americans? The US governmental and private agencies have been violating the privacy of every human being on earth. =============================== Tue Oct 13, 2015 | 1:28 PM EDT Iraq using info from new intelligence center to bomb Islamic State: official Militant Islamist fighters hold the flag of Islamic State (IS) while taking part in a military parade along the streets of northern Raqqa province in this June 30, 2014 file photo. Reuters/Stringer Iraq using info from new intelligence center to...X By Babak Dehghanpisheh BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq has begun bombing Islamic State insurgents with help from a new intelligence center with staff from Russia, Iran and Syria, a senior parliamentary figure said on Tuesday about cooperation seen as a threat to U.S. interests in the region. The center has been operational for about a week, and it provided intelligence for air strikes on a gathering of middle-level Islamic State figures, Hakim al Zamili, the head of parliament's defense and security committee, told Reuters. The new security apparatus based in Baghdad suggests the United States is losing clout in a strategic oil-producing Middle East, where it has been heavily invested for years. Two weeks ago Russia started bombing anti-government rebels in neighboring Syria, including the ultra hardline Islamic State, to support its ally, President Bashar al-Assad, to the consternation of the West. Iraqi officials, frustrated with the pace and depth of the U.S. military campaign against Islamic State, have said they will lean heavily on Washington's former Cold War rival Russia in the battle against the Sunni Muslim jihadists. Two Russian one-star generals are stationed at the intelligence center in Baghdad, according to an Iraqi official who asked not to be named. Zamili, a leading Shi'ite Muslim politician, said each of the four member countries has six members in the intelligence sharing and security cooperation cell, which holds meetings in Baghdad's fortified "Green Zone" that once housed the headquarters of the U.S. occupation. “We find it extremely useful," the Iraqi official said. “The idea is to formalize the relationship with Iran, Russia and Syria. We wanted a full-blown military alliance.” Iran, a longtime Middle East adversary of the United States, already boasts deep influence in Iraq. Iranian military advisers help direct Baghdad's campaign against Islamic State, which aims to expand its self-proclaimed caliphate in the Middle East. It is Russia's participation in the intelligence hub that is causing the most Western anxiety. Washington, with a history of close security links with Baghdad, now worries the intelligence center may foster closer Russian-Iraqi ties, particularly with respect to operations against Islamist militants, a U.S. security official said. The United States believes the main point of the intelligence pact, which also covers operations in Syria, is to show that Russia is taking a greater role in the conflict in the neighboring country, said the official. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has said he would welcome Russian air strikes against Islamic State on Iraqi soil. The Baghdad government, and allied Iranian-backed Shi'ite militias who are leading the fight against Islamic State in Iraq, say the United States lacks the decisiveness and the readiness to supply weapons needed to eliminate militancy in the region. Washington denies such accusations. U.S.-led air strikes on Islamic State militants who control a third of Iraq, have failed to turn the tide in Iraq's conflict, which has sapped the OPEC oil producer's finances and fueled sectarian bloodletting. Iraqi warplanes bombed a convoy this week that was thought to be carrying Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, based on information from the center, said Zamili. Security officials later said Baghdadi had not been in the convoy. "We can get a lot of use from Russian intelligence, even if they don't do air strikes," Zamili said. Sami al-Askari, a former member of the Iraqi parliament and one-time senior adviser to ex-prime minister Nuri al-Maliki, said Iraq was aware of the sensitivities of the new arrangement. “The Iraqi government wants to do this in a way that doesn’t look like they’re pushing the Americans away,” he said.

Posters of Putin are popping up on cars and billboards elsewhere in parts of Syria and Iraq, praising the Russian military intervention in Syria as one that will redress the balance of power in the region. The Russian leader is winning accolades from many in Iraq and Syria, who see Russian airstrikes in Syria as a turning point after more than a year of largely ineffectual efforts by the U.S.-led coalition to dislodge the Islamic State militants who have occupied significant parts of the two countries. The reactions underscore that while the West may criticize Putin for supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, there is some relief in the region at the emergence of a player with a coherent — if controversial — strategy. "Putin does more than just speak," said Sohban Elewi of Damascus, summing up the views of Syrians on opposing camps who regard U.S. policy in Syria and Iraq as fumbled and confused. Russia began its air campaign in Syria on Sept. 30, joining the fray of those bombing Syria at a critical time for Assad and his embattled troops. The Syrian army's loss of the northern province of Idlib opened the way for rebels to come dangerously close to the coastal Alawite heartland, leaving his soldiers there vulnerable and dejected. Russia insists it is targeting the Islamic State group and other "terrorists." But Syrian rebels and opposition activists say Moscow's warplanes in recent days have focused on Idlib and the central province of Hama, hitting U.S.-backed rebels in areas with no IS militants. The planes also have provided air cover for Syrian ground troops who launched an offensive in central Syria, reinforcing the belief that Russia's main aim is to shore up Assad's forces. In addition to the warplanes taking off from a base in Latakia, Russian ships in the Caspian Sea have fired cruise missiles that fly nearly 1,500 kilometers (930 miles) over Iran and Iraq to strike Raqqa and Aleppo provinces, in what many see as a show of force meant to portray muscle more than serve a specific military goal. Among Assad's war-weary and frustrated supporters, such elaborate displays of support provide a much-needed psychological boost, and have injected new hope that their flailing battle against rebel factions and the Islamic State group can still be won. "The (Russian) intervention has raised the morale of the Syrian army and the Syrian people alike," said Dr. Samir Haddad from the central city of Homs. "President Putin has a distinguished personality and charisma, and it has become clear that world leaders have gradually started approving, openly or secretly, of this intervention," he said. In Iraq, where the U.S.-led war against IS has stalled, many say they want Russian airstrikes against IS to extend to their country. Buried between paintings of Baghdad architecture, mosques and landscapes, some art shops in Baghdad have begun selling portraits of Putin, a tribute to his intervention in what Iraqis see as the new military front against IS. "Russia does not play games. They are problem solvers, and they do it quietly and efficiently, not like the Americans who prefer to do everything in front of the cameras," said Hussein Karim, a 21-year-old medical student from Baghdad. In one cartoon widely distributed among Iraqis on Facebook and Twitter, U.S. President Barack Obama is dressed as a Sunni sheikh, while Putin as a Shiite imam, suggesting the two are taking sides. Another cartoon shows a bare-chested Putin holding IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by the collar of his jalabaya, looking very intimidating. He says to al-Baghdadi: "Where do you think you're going? I'll flatten you like flour," a popular Iraqi expression. Al-Baghdadi, holding a cellphone, shouts: "Obama, save me!" Most of the cartoons portray Putin as muscular — a perception that echoes the one at home in Russia, where he has cultivated an image as a man of action. In addition to conducting his official duties, he often is shown on Russian TV doing such activities as playing ice hockey — as he did last week on his 63rd birthday — or climbing into a submersible to explore the sea. T-shirts with his image are sold at shopping malls, souvenir stores and even from vending machines in Moscow airports. Some depict him looking tough in dark sunglasses, while others show him riding a horse to the words from a pop song: "They are not going to get us." The military intervention in Syria is viewed by many as a sign of shifting alliances in the region as Russia takes a greater role in the fight against IS. Russia has had strong ties with the Mideast for years. The fascination with Putin is driven largely by a longstanding suspicion of the West and anger about decades of U.S. intervention in the region that many say has led to more wars and sectarianism. Many hope a stronger Russia would lead to a more balanced approach. Iraq's prime minister said last month that his government also entered a joint intelligence sharing agreement with Russia, Iran and Syria, opening an operations center in the heart of Baghdad. In Egypt, Russian flags and posters of Putin's face hung across Cairo during his visit in February. At the time, the state-run Al Ahram newspaper profiled him, with photos showing Putin shirtless and holding various weapons, headlined, "A hero of our times." His appeal has extended to Lebanon, where some demonstrators — Christian allies of the Iranian-backed Hezbollah group — wore T-shirts bearing Putin's face at a protest Sunday calling for Lebanese presidential elections. "Putin considers the Syrian crisis an excellent opportunity to erode America's standing in the region," said Ghassan Charbel, editor of the London-based Arabic daily newspaper Al Hayat. In a front-page editorial Monday, he warned that while Syria presents Moscow with an opportunity to exact revenge from the West, it may transform quickly into an Afghanistan-like quagmire that threatens to erode Putin's image as a "czar." But the Russian airstrikes also have drawn the ire of rebels in Syria who have formed a joint operations room to fight the new foe. At a recent demonstration in the northern city of Idlib, armed rebels set fire to a Russian flag. "We will trample on your heads," read one banner, addressing the Russians. ___ Salama reported from Baghdad.
