7 Oct 2017 – Der Hisbollah-Vorsitzende Hassan Nasrallah hat vor wenigen Tagen vor der Aufspaltung des Mittleren Ostens gewarnt. In einer Rede anlässlich des Aschura-Festes, das von schiitischen Muslimen gefeiert wird, sagte Nasrallah, dass der Angriff durch den selbst ernannten „Islamischen Staat“ („IS), seine Verbündeten und Sponsoren gescheitert sei. Das Ziel sei gewesen, so Nasrallah, die Region zu spalten, dies sei jedoch nicht gelungen. Doch nun soll die Region entlang ethnischer und religiöser Zugehörigkeiten gespalten werden. Als Beispiel nannte Nasrallah das Unabhängigkeitsreferendum der nordirakischen Kurden. Aufteilung und Abspaltung werde zu mehr und endlosen Kriegen führen. Die einzigen, die davon profitieren würden seien „Israel und die USA, die mit ihrer Rüstungsindustrie ein Vermögen verdienen.“
MESOP NEWS SYRIA : THE FOLLOW UP !
Marianna Belenkaya October 5, 2017 – Carnegie Center Moscow – Russia and the United States are curious about each other’s long-term goals in Syria, and each believes the other has something up its sleeve.
Two years have passed since Russia began its military campaign in Syria. The Russian military has reached this milestone as victors, with reports of liberating almost 90% of the country’s territory from Islamic State (IS) militants. Average Russians do not care much that this accomplishment was achieved through the joint effort of many countries. What they do care about is feeling assured that a final victory is not far off. However, military reports and statements by diplomats imply that the main battle for Syria’s future is still to come.
