‘Military pressure’ may be needed to oust Syrian President – John Kerry
0

US Secretary of State John Kerry has declared that military pressure may be needed to oust Syria’s President Bashar Assad. It comes as knowledge has emerged that the US, along with Turkey, has started training Syrian rebels. “Ultimately a combination of diplomacy and pressure will be needed to bring about a political transition. Military pressure particularly may be necessary given President Assad's reluctance to negotiate seriously,” Kerry said at a Thursday meeting of Gulf foreign ministers at Riyadh Air Base, according to AFP.

“He’s lost any semblance of legitimacy, but we have no higher priority than disrupting and defeating Daesh and other terror networks,” he added, using “Daesh” – an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State group (formerly known as ISIS/ISIL) that has seized large territories in Syria and Iraq.

Kerry calls for military pressure in Syria, while U.S. general calls for lethal aid in Ukraine, and Israel keeps on bombing Gaza. Rush for war?

Syria: Militants Seize Large Cache of US Weapons In Aleppo
0
0
Two days after the disbandment of the second U.S. backed “moderate” rebel militia in six months, the Syrian Al-Qaeda branch “Jabhat Al-Nusra” (Al-Nusra Front) seized a large cache of TOW (wire-guided anti-tank) missiles inside Regiment 46 Base in southwestern Aleppo after defeating Harakat Hazzm (Movement of Steadfastness) in a short battle. Images of Jabhat Al-Nusra fighters with the U.S. supplied TOW missiles surfaced on Monday morning, as they paraded around the captured Regiment 46 Base, posing for pictures in front of boxes with the U.S.’ insignia.

The growing fear of hardline Islamist groups getting ahold of these potent weapons has now become a reality for the hesitant western politicians, who questioned the distribution of these arms to militias affiliated with the likes of Al-Qaeda in Syria. For Jabhat Al-Nusra, the confiscation of these powerful weapons will pay dividends for their fighters entrenched in rural areas that are swarmed with Syrian Arab Army (SAA) armored divisions; however, at what cost.

Syria: Civilians pay heavy price amid fierce fighting for Aleppo
0
0
The battle for Aleppo is raging and civilians are paying the price. Reports say at least 22 have been killed in a government barrel bomb attack as the tug of war for control of Syria’s second city intensifies. Images on social media purportedly show the aftermath. It looks like revenge for Wednesday’s blast at the regime’s Air Force Intelligence headquarters in the city. Rebels are said to have detonated explosives from a tunnel underneath the building.

The blast and subsequent fighting have reportedly killed 34 people on both sides. Away from the frontline, French President Francois Hollande hosted leaders of Syria’s Western-backed political opposition. And for the first time its leader announced that the departure of President al-Assad is no longer a pre-condition for peace talks.

Joint Chiefs Chairman: US Ground Troops ‘Eventually’ Needed in Syria
0
0
Testifying today at the House Appropriations Committee, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said it was likely that US ground troops would “eventually” be needed in the ISIS war inside Syria. Gen. Dempsey, who has been talking up the idea of US combat forces on the ground in Iraq, insisted that “moderate” Syrian rebels might need direct US military backing, with special forces as well as close-air support, to challenge ISIS.

Shin Bet Secretly Arrests IDF Druze Soldier Suspected of Exposing Secret Meeting

UPDATE: Israel’s secret police are so freaked out by Israeli media even noting in their reporting that foreign media outlets (like this blog and two Arab media sources) have reported information about this scandal, that they today issued a sweeping new version of the gag order. By the way, this is the handiwork of Judge Hanna Sabbagh of the Nazareth Magistrate Court, one of the apparently infinitely pliable Israeli jurists (he is Israeli-Palestinian, by the way) when it comes to security matters:
