Is Syrian Intelligence involved in Soleimani's assassination
The Monday's visit of Ali Mamlouk, Head of the National Security Bureau to convey Bashar al-Assad’s deepest condolences to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has recalled an Arabic proverb about the man who kills and then attends his victim's funeral.
The plane in which the Head of Quds Force arrived in Baghdad belongs to Cham Wings Airlines, owned by Assad’s cousin Rami Makhlouf. A lot of people are wondering about how the US knew of his arrival in Baghdad from Damascus, and more specifically whether the regime had any role in leaking the information.
According to security sources, mamlouk was able to build a strong network of relations with all global intelligence, including with Israel, US, France, Britain, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and others. In fact, despite the tense political relations between the two countries, Mamlouk, unsurprisingly, did not cut his contact with Turkish intelligence during the past years.
The sources said that, “He was and is still working with the CIA, since the US invasion of Iraq. He had sent dozens of Mujahideen from Syrian, and other Arab and Muslim countries to Iraq through Syria, but he then informed the CIA about their movements.”
Whether it is assassination, killing or arrest of a prominent leader in the Arab world, Assad’s regime is always in the middle of the fray, working as a double agent for the benefit of most parties with an international weight, even if the target is one of its supporters. This is a list of name that the regime is suspected of being behind their assassination or arrest:
Abdullah Öcalan: leader of the PKK, who has been taken in by Hafiz al-Assad for many years, caused a great tension with Turkey that almost led to a war, forcing Assad, with Egyptian mediation, to sign the Adana Agreement. Öcalan was deported in 1999, and that was when Turkish intelligence and Mossad caught him, in Kenina, and brought him to Ankara.
Imad Mughniyah: was an important Hezbollah figue. Israel used to call him the “untraceable ghost”. He was assassinated in a car bombing, in February 2008, in Damascus, following an elaborately planned CIA/Mossad operation.
Jihad Imad Mughniyah: entered military action with Hezbollah after the assassination of his father. He has a strong relationship with Hassan Nasrallah and Qasem Soleimani. Israel eliminated in January 2015, by targeting the car carrying him with 6 other leaders in south Damascus.
Mostafa Badr Eddin: was assigned Imad Mughniyah’s deputy as his successor, and he was killed in May 2016 in mysterious circumstances in Damascus International Airport. Some accuse Qasem Soleimani of killing him.
Fawzi Ayoub: a famous Hezbollah figure, was detained in Israel after trying to enter it with a forged American passport. He was freed two years later in a prisoner exchange deal with Hezbollah.
After entering Syria he was assassinated near Aleppo, in May 2014.
Sameer Al-Kuntar: spent 30 years in captivity in Israel, and was liberated in an exchange deal with Hezbollah. He was assassinated by Israel in December 2015, by several missiles fired from a drone on his house on the outskirts of Jaramana east of Damascus.
Tunisian Engineer Mohamed Al-Zawry: one of the prominent engineers of Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigade was assassinated in 2016 in Tunisia. He was adopted by the Syrian intelligence service and started working in manufacturing drones at the Syrian Scientific Research Center.
"Early estimates indicate heavy US casualties in Iran's missile attack," an informed IRGC Intelligence Department told FNA Wednesday morning.
"According to the reports sent by our sources in the region to this moment, at least 80 US arm personnel have been killed and around 200 others wounded," he said, adding that the wounded have been evacuated from Ein Al-Assad on choppers.
"Some 20 sensitive points of this base were struck by 15 missiles, resulting in the destruction of a considerable number of drones and helicopters," the source added, explaining that some of the targets have been destroyed in a single strike resulted from the high-explosive power of the warheads and serial explosions.
He reiterated that the US army was on high alert, but failed to show proper reaction.
The IRGC source further cautioned that "a sum of 104 sensitive US positions in the region have been identified to immediately come under raid as soon as the Americans make the first mistake".
Ein Al-Assad is an airbase with a 4km runway at 188m altitude from sea levels, which is the main and the largest US airbase in Iraq. Early reports said the radar systems and missile defense shields in Ein Al-Assad have failed to operate and intercept the Iranian missiles. Unofficial reports said the US army's central radar systems at Ein Al-Assad had been jammed by electronic warfare.
The second IRGC reprisal attack targeted a US military base near Erbil airport in Iraqi Kurdistan Region in the second leg of "Martyr Soleimani" reprisal operation.
All flights have been cancelled at Erbil airport.
hmmm.... eikä irakilaisia kuollut iskussa niinkuin USA väitti...
Iraq said the attacks have not taken any toll from its army men stationed at these two bases. The US army had blocked entrance into Ein Al-Assad to everyone, including the Iraqi army.
Muistakaa, että tämä on ensimmäinen suora hyökkäys Jenkkien armeijaa vastaan toisen maailmansodan jälkeen. Ensimmäinen!
This is the first direct attack on the US army ever since world war two.
IRGC officials said none of the missiles had been intercepted.
Following the attack, the IRGC issued a statement immediately after the attacks, declaring that it has fired tens of ground-to-ground missiles at "the airbase occupied by the terrorist and aggressive army of the United States known as Ein Al-Assad" in reprisal for the martyrdom of IRGC Qods Force Commaner Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani.
Iran on varoittanut Jenkkejä vastaamasta eilisiin iskuihin:
The IRGC warned the US to avoid retaliating the Wednesday attack or else "it will face a more painful and crushing response".
The IRGC Statement also warned "all the US allied states where the terrorist army has a base, any territory that becomes the origin of any hostile and aggressive action against the Islamic Republic of Iran in any way will be targeted".
"We believe that the Zionist regime by no means stands aside from the criminal US regime in these crimes."
The IRGC also called on the American nation to pressure the White House to pull their troops out of the region to avoid further damage and not allow the US rulers to endager the lives of their military men through increasing hatred.
All Iranian underground missile towns are on alert.
The missile attack came hours before the body of General Soleimani was laid to rest.
Lieutenant General Soleimani was martyred in a targeted assassination attack by the US drones at Baghdad International Airport early on Friday morning.
The airstrike also martyred Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF), or Hashad al-Shaabi. The two were martyred in an American airstrike that targeted their vehicle on the road to the airport.
Five Iranian and five Iraqi militaries were martyred by missiles fired by the US drone at Baghdad International Airport.
The attack came amid tensions that started by the US attack on PMF units that killed 28 Iraqi popular forces. A day later, Iraqi people attacked the US embassy in Baghdad.
The targeted assassination attack represents a dramatic escalation by the US toward Iran after months of tensions. The tensions take root in Trump’s decision in May 2018 to withdraw the US from Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers, struck under his predecessor.
Jukkis kirjoitti: Niin, minen tiiä onko Iranvetoista terroristijärjestöä oikeastaan koskaan ollutkaan muu kuin Hizbollah, ja sekin on nähnyt parhaat päivänsä joskus 1980-luvulla. Silloin Khomeinin aikaan.
Tässä on tietty, nyt kun luki mitä Trump sanoi, sitä tuttua trumpilaista logiikkaa. Ensin kuolettava uho jonkun radikaalimman vedon kanssa ja sitten rauhantarjous perään. Sitten se kuulu trumpilainen "diili" ja lopputulos yleensä epäonnistuu. Se epäonnistui Pohjoiskorean kanssa ja epäonnistui aiemmin Iranin kanssa. Syynä varmaan että Trump aloittaa neuvottelut yleensä näin radikaalisti ja jotka myöhemmin ajautuu umpikujaan, ajaa muuten vaan karille tai jäävät oman onnensa nojaan.
Tilanne on kumminkin ratkennut itsestään. Yhdysvallat on saanut pelistä pois haluamansa tyypin ja kasvojaan suojellakseen Iran on saanut ampua ohjuksensa - joka on YKn 51. artiklan hyväksymä toimenpide - amerikkalaiseen tukikohtaan. Ilmeisesti varoittivat etukäteen tai jättivät ohjukset tieten suutareiksi kun kukaan ei kuulemma kuollut.
CIA sentään ehti yhden ukranalaiskoneen tiputtaan pommilla mutta kun kyseessä oli ukrainalainen lentokone, ei siitä kukaan piittaa koska se kuuluu sen maan ilmailurakenteisiin.
Hart kirjoitti: Taa ei varmaan irakilaisia naurata etta trump hakee korvauksia taikka etta usa jaadyttaa irakin oljytulot jos usan maastapoistumista viedaan eteenpain.
Eika tietenkaan Soleimanin- + irakin komentajan laiton murha tai mielenosoittajien murhat jonka olin jo miettinyt IRGCn vastuulle.
Toi Soleimanin syyttaminen jostain usan konsulaatin hyokkayksen suunnittelusta onkuin syytais Stolbergia r-kioskin rajayttamis suunitelmista. Onhan nailla miehilla hyokkays ja puolustussuunnitelmia kun se kuuluu niiden tyohon. Skaala on vain erilainen.
Se etta kaveri selvisi olleen rauhan lahettilaana iranin ja saudien valissa on ihan mielenkiintoista siina mielessa mita tapahtui kun japanin paaministeri yritti hieroa rauhaa.
Taa saudien oljytornien hyokkays ja vastaavasti 1 miljardin suojelusrahat usalle ei sinallansakkaan ole viela ihmeellista kunnes lisataan etta saudeissa on 2 murhayritysta tehty naita kuninkaallisia vastaan aivan viimeaikoina.
Niin vain ponkaistiin anti-Iran protesti pystyyn Iranissa - jopa tökerö video siitä kuinka mukamas hallituksen joukot ampuivat mielenosoittajia. Ja kuka protestin järjesti? Brittien diplomaatti Iranissa. Ja Trump vuodatti krokotiilinkyyneleitä Twitterissä.
For example, the politician reportedly said that the US refused to complete the infrastructure and electricity grid projects unless it is promised 50% of oil revenues. The Prime Minister refused to make the concession.
Then, when the Prime Minister visited China and reached an important agreement to undertake construction of the projects instead of the US, President Donald Trump allegedly called him, telling him to rescind the agreement with China, otherwise there would be massive demonstrations against him, that would force him out of his seat.
HINT: A 50-person Iraqi delegation visited China in 2019 and that protests began on October 1st, observed a religious holiday, and then ramped up once again on October 25th. The flames of the protests were further fanned by mainstream media outlets.
Then, when massive demonstrations materialized against Adel Abdul-Mahdi, Trump once again allegedly called him. The US President allegedly threatened to position US marine snipers “atop the highest buildings,” who will target and kill protesters and security forces alike in an attempt to pressure the Prime Minister.
Instead of complying, Adel Abdul-Mahdi refused and handed in his resignation and the US still attempt to pressure him in cancelling the supposed deal with China.
Later on, when the Iraqi Minister of Defense publicly said that a third side was targeting both protesters and security forces alike, Abdul-Mahdi allegedly received a new call from Trump who threatened to kill both him and the Minister of Defense if they kept talking about this “third side”.
Furthermore, the Iraqi Pirme Minister revealed that Iranian General Qassem Soleimani was invited to Iraq to take part in reconciliation negotiations with Saudi Arabia when he was assassinated by the US.
Koko Lähi-idässä protestoidaan Jenkkejä vastaan:
The US Embassy in New Delhi in India is closed due to mass protests. Protesters burn flags of the USA and Israel.
The Prime Minister of Malaysia called on Muslim countries to unite to protect themselves from foreign attacks and killings.

Iran nayttaa tosiaan tunnustavan kun on jostain vastuussa.
Historian valossa se ei ole mikaan maailman laajuinen hyve.
En kylla jaksa vielakaan uskoa tarinaan limpetti miinoista japanilaiseen tankkeriin samaan aikaan kun japanin lahettilas on hieromassa sopua usan ja iranin valille. enka saudi torneihin kohdistunutta drone iskua jota 6 patriootti pataljoonaa ei huomannut pysayttaa.
Ensimmainen oli selva munaus. 2 viimeista olisi vaatinut suunnittelua eika niista ollut minkaan nakoista strategista hyotya iranille. pain vastoin.
Lisataan nyt viela etta jos Irakin WMD valhetta ei olisi viety lansilehdistossa lapi ei sotaan olisi ikina saatu kannatusta. Irakista ei olisi kuollut miljoonaa ihmista, isista ei olisi syntynyt, pakolaiskriisia ei olisi, 17 vuoden ja miljoonien dollareiden jalkeen Irakin ei tarvis miettia miten se saa valloittajat lahtemaan takaisin omiin maihinsa. Mutta sitahan ei kannata miettia.
