Erdogan made all the conclusions after the failed coup d’état. He perfectly understands that behind the Gülen sect, who are responsible for this coup, is the US, and there is not the slightest doubt. Accordingly, during this year Erdogan very carefully restructured his policy towards strengthening the sovereignty of Turkey, but under new conditions.
One of the key shopping areas of Mosul. Before and after the capture of Mosul by the Caliphate and American “precision” bombing. And remember, about a year ago, the Western media screaming about “the crimes of Assad in Aleppo.”

Officials at an Army chemical and biological storage and testing facility did not follow protocols while tracking inventories of sarin, a dangerous nerve agent, according to a recent inspector general report.
The U.S. Army Dugway Proving Ground also at times failed to provide disqualifying information about employees such as drug use and an incident involving alcohol, the report found.
It is difficult to say what is expected of the new US plenipotentiary representative for Ukraine, it is obviously a transfer-communicative link in the relations between Washington and Moscow. Previously, this role played Nuland, now it was replaced by Volcker. Nuland and Volker are not sympathizers of the Russian Federation and are, in fact, representatives of those circles who stood for organizing a coup d’état in Ukraine. It is extremely unlikely that the replacement of personalities here will affect something, because the contradictions here are of a strategic and ideological nature.
The truce is of course will not stop the war, and will be another temporary backup as long as there are no long-term agreements on the future of Syria. Real negotiations on the future of Syria between the major coalitions and their fellow travelers will start after the Caliphate is defeated and the boundaries of the spheres of influence of the parties are determined, which will become a platform for talks on the Syrian settlement and the interests of the major participants in the war, or serve as starting positions for the next phase of the war, without the Caliphate.
As a result of the meeting between Putin and Trump, some progress has been made in Syria, so that the meeting can not be called completely empty exclusively for the handshake, which in many ways was overly discussed, precisely because the majority did not understand what Trump could expect. After a two-hour discussion of various issues, the parties agreed to expand the armistice in Syria by including areas in the Southeast – Deraa and Quneitra, where the United States will commit itself to cease fire by local factions, and the Russian Federation, with the help of the military police, will ensure the ceasefire of Damascus. Anonymous sources report that the United States will help to ensure that Israel and Jordan fulfill the ceasefire. The truce enters into force on 9 July. Regarding the situation in the province of Raqqa and in the south-western regions of Syria, there is as yet no concrete solution.
The USA, because of the launch of a rocket hypothetically able to hit targets in Alaska, wanted to push through the UN Security Council a statement condemning North Korea for “aggressive challenge to the world community”, which was supposed to open the way to discussion on the practice of a new package of sanctions against the DPRK and most importantly, to create the ground for pressure on China, which the US demanded to have a stronger economic pressure on North Korea, that Kim ceased to launch rockets without any preconditions.
The DPRK has successfully tested a new version of its Intercontinental ballistic missiles Hwaong-14.
The rocket has successfully overcome a height of 2 000 km and flew a total of 930 kilometers in the direction of Japan.
Pyongyang has traditionally stated that it will continue to develop its missile and nuclear program to put an end to American threats of nuclear war.
Grinning broadly, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un delighted in the global furor created by his nation’s first launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, vowing Wednesday to never abandon nuclear weapons and to keep sending Washington more “gift packages” of missile and atomic tests.
“The July 15 coup was a U.S. scenario. It was prepared also in advance and the information was given to the PKK. FETO and the PKK and will attack and Turkey was to crumble”
Among the main customers of the “diplomatic flights for weapons” service provided by Silk Way Airlines are American companies, which supply weapons to the US army and US Special Operations Command. The common element in these cases is that they all supply non-US standard weapons; hence, the weapons are not used by the US forces.

Formally, deliveries were carried out on civil aircraft with special diplomatic status that enabled it to avoid the checks of the goods transported on the merits, which was necessary to maintain secrecy. In Bulgaria, one of the main suppliers of weapons was VMZ Sopot.

During the fighting near the town Hamdia (Golan heights) affiliated with “al-Qaeda” group “Hayat Tahrir al-sham” the militants were found with Israeli medical packages, which once again confirms the obvious fact that Israel also supports radical Islamist terrorist groups in Syria that are used to weaken the Syrian government. Earlier the network already got footage of Israel providing aid to militants on the border with the Golan heights, not to mention the strikes that the vast majority of case are carried out in the interests of jihadists.
On the one hand it is a common phenomenon, but in the current environment, when Turkey constantly spins the flywheel charges the Kurds of terrorism, this shooting and shelling on the border can be a handy excuse that would allow Turkey to finally justify the invasion of Afrin. Social.networks already walking called “the Sword of the Euphrates”, as a possible name of the operation the Turkish army by analogy with the operations of Dzharablus and al-Baba, who was called “the Shield of the Euphrates”. Various sources note the high concentration of Turkish troops and Turkish-controlled fighters vs Afrin.
