Now Trump is making his first foreign tour. And again a surprise. The first foreign visit is this time not to Mexico and the countries of Latin America, which is the custom of American presidents, and not to Russia, for example, but to Saudi Arabia, the country that is the main sponsor of ISIS (banned in Russia) and Islamic terrorism. What logic we are dealing with here? Neither Trump number 1, nor Trump number 2. Who are You Mr. Trump?
Preston told Press TV that while the US has been helping terror groups to wreak havoc in the region over the years, it is now getting increasingly concerned about the consequences of the trend for its own allies, specially Israel.
In Northern Hama the front has stabilized. The militants went after the failures of mid-April, fell back to the area of Lataminah and Morek, which is reflected in the rate of advance of the SAA, which is now bogged down in battles for the towns South of Lataminah and South-East of Morek. If in these fights, SAA will be able to grind the main forces of the militants, before the Syrians will open good prospects associated with access to the Central regions of Idlib.
Russian scientist and philosopher, which in Israel is called the “Rasputin of Putin,” has told about Russia’s attitude to Israel, Iran, Turkey and the Palestinians
The Syrian army stated on March 17 that during a RAID on a convoy “Hezbollah” shot down an Israeli aircraft. The IDF then officially denied any losses, but today admitted that during the RAID was lost one drone. At the same time, Israel claims that the drone fell itself, and was not shot down by Syrian air defense.
4 Israeli aircraft crossed the airspace border of Syria to attack targets in Syrian territory (presumably, bases and areas of concentration of “Hezbollah”, against which Israel is in a hybrid war).
At the retreat, after the attacks, on them fire was opened from Syrian air defense systems. Further data disagree – Israel claims that the planes were not damaged and they all returned to base. Syria says that one of the planes was shot down.
In the aftermath of Israel’s early Friday morning airstrikes against Hezbollah targets in Syria, the country’s Arrow anti-ballistic missile scored its first operational intercept — but against what, experts here are asking?
Israeli media are reporting that the Arrow intercepted an SA-5 surface-to-air missile, or SAM, and indeed it is logical that Syria’s air defense system launched against the intruding Israeli fighters in an attempt to down the planes. But given that the Israeli attack was hundreds of kilometers away from Israeli territory, why would Israel launch Arrow, which is intended to defend the homeland?
