Remember When Israel Was Ebullient About Killing Iranian and Hezbollah Forces Fighting ISIS: “Allahdadi was killed with a Hezbollah commander and the son of the group’s late military leader, Imad Moughniyeh, in Sunday’s attack on a convoy near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights”



Attacks on Egyptian checkpoints signal escalation in Isis capabilities 

Jihadi group claims to have ‘total control of many sites’ in northern Sinai after wave of attacks in which up to 40 Egyptian soldiers were killed 

Patrick Kingsley in Cairo Wednesday 1 July 2015 10.18 EDT Last modified on Wednesday 1 July 2015 19.50 EDT GUARDIAN

Islamic State appears to have made small but unprecedented advances in Egypt, killing dozens of soldiers as it attacked multiple military checkpoints and attempted for the first time to control a small pocket of territory in the Sinai desert. Last night, Egypt’s army said more than 100 militants and 17 soldiers were killed in the deadliest fighting in years in the restive province. 

 Wilayat Sinai, a jihadi group that declared allegiance to Isis last autumn, attacked the town of Sheikh Zuwaid, a few miles from Egypt’s border with Gaza and Israel, on Wednesday morning. It overran several army checkpoints and by local accounts had taken control of several buildings. By midday the group said it had surrounded Sheikh Zuwaid’s police station, a move reportedly confirmed by the station’s commander in a phonecall with a local newspaper. 

 Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the wave of attacks in Sinai: ‘We see ISIS at the gates’ Late yesterday, an army spokesman said the situation in North Sinai was “100 percent under control”. 

Security sources and witnesses later said aerial bombardments on militant targets had resumed. Officials tried to downplay the number of military casualties, admitting only that 10 soldiers had died. But several local newspapers quoted far higher numbers, with the main state news website, al-Ahram, reporting at least 20 dead, and news agencies placing the total at nearly 40. 

 Isis also claimed it had seized other parts of the town, releasing a statement that read: “We have total control of many sites, and have seized what was in them.” If true, even for a brief period, the move marks an escalation in the group’s strategy and capabilities in Sinai. 

 Isis has previously launched several bloody attacks on the Egyptian army in the north-eastern part of the peninsula – most notably this January and last October. But after those assaults, Isis quickly retreated – whereas after Wednesday’s attack the group appeared to try to advance. Asked by the Guardian about the situation in Sheikh Zuwaid, an army spokesman would not comment. A health official at a local hospital said his colleagues had treated at least 30 civilian casualties. He added that survivors had described the scene as a full-scale battle. Militants were “firing weapons from the rooftops,” the source said. “We’re hearing that it’s street warfare.” 

 To what extent Isis had succeeded in holding territory is unclear, said Zack Gold, a Sinai-focused analyst, particularly as reporters have long been prevented from entering this area of Sinai, which lies far from the peninsula’s southern tourist resorts. But any control of physical space would be significant, said Gold, a visiting fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv. “The invading of a city, taking over buildings – that is a new development, and it’s similar to the over-running of cities that we’ve seen in Iraq and Syria,” said Gold. “It would be different to the January events when there were multiple simultaneous attacks – but then [the militants] disappeared.”

 Jihadis in north-eastern Sinai have attacked Egyptian forces for years, but the scale and frequency of the violence rose markedly after the army ousted Egypt’s first elected president, the Islamist Mohamed Morsi, in July 2013. An extremist group that had been active before Morsi’s overthrow, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, began claiming responsibility for more attacks – and just over a year later it declared allegiance to Isis, and changed its name to Wilayat Sinai. 

 Apart from a string of major attacks in the winter of 2013-14 on the Egyptian mainland, the group’s activity has been largely limited to north-eastern Sinai. But on Monday unknown militants assassinated Egypt’s chief prosecutor in Cairo, and no one has yet claimed responsibility for his death. Additional reporting: Manu Abdo

WHAT DID HEZBOLLAH SAY ABOUT ISIS IN FEBRUARY 2015?




134 comments:

  1. On Wednesday, the Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said the Islamic State was an “unauthorized organization” in Israel, a statement that links the country more directly to the international fight against ISIS, a group that has taken over large swaths of land in both Iraq and Syria. But aside from that statement, the Israeli government has remained largely silent on ISIS, while its U.S. ally works to assemble an international coalition against the extremist group whose atrocities have horrified the world.

    The statement arrives just one day after a video surfaced showing ISIS beheading U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff. The Israeli foreign ministry confirmed Wednesday that Sotloff was an Israeli citizen, as well as American. But despite Sotloff’s affiliation with Israel, senior politicians there have yet to publicly condemn the Sunni militant group for its violence.

    Israel has avoided getting involved in the fight against ISIS for two reasons, experts say: because it does not see the group as a direct threat and because it is wary of involving itself in a battle that aligns with the objectives of the Syrian regime, a longtime political rival.

    “Part of the Israeli security doctrine is not picking fights that it doesn’t want to engage in,” Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense and Democracies, a nonprofit policy research group, said. “We are not going to see blistering rhetoric out of Jerusalem in the way that we saw with Hamas during Operation Protective Edge.” For the past two months, the Israeli Defense Force has been battling Hamas militants in Gaza in a conflict, called Operation Protective Edge by the IDF, that killed more than 2,200 people.

    During the conflict, Israel consistently used rhetoric attempting to undermine Hamas' legitimacy, and denounced its militants as “terrorists.” It has yet to use similar words against ISIS. The difference, analysts say, is that unlike Hamas, ISIS has not attempted to attack Israel.

    During Operation Protective Edge, ISIS released a statement that said it was focused on fighting Muslims who “have become infidels.” “The greatest answer to this question is the Qur’an, where Allah speaks about the nearby enemy -- those Muslims who have become infidels–as they are more dangerous than those which were already infidels,” an ISIS spokesman on Twitter said.

    “There is no reason to challenge ISIS if there is no direct threat,” Schanzer said. “Israel has seen the wisdom to stay above the fray as long as humanly possible.”

  2. Asked about the death of Allahdadi Yaakov ( the Iranian General assisting Hezbollah in the fight against ISIS) Amidror, former head of Israel’s National Security Council said: “The fact that a senior Iranian is involved, who was involved in planning actions against Israel, is on the benefit side. The presence of a senior Iranian must also come up on the price side. And if his presence was known to the decision-makers, this should have been on the table as part of the problem.”

  4. ISIS has been in action for one year. John McCain was having his photo taken with them. The Turks and Saudis and the CIA were arming them.

    From the Washington Post, By Ernesto Londoño and Greg Miller September 11, 2013:

    The CIA has begun delivering weapons to rebels in Syria, ending months of delay in lethal aid that had been promised by the Obama administration, according to U.S. officials and Syrian figures. The shipments began streaming into the country over the past two weeks, along with separate deliveries by the State Department of vehicles and other gear — a flow of material that marks a major escalation of the U.S. role in Syria’s civil war.

    The arms shipments, which are limited to light weapons and other munitions that can be tracked, began arriving in Syria at a moment of heightened tensions over threats by President Obama to order missile strikes to punish the regime of Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons in a deadly attack near Damascus last month.

    The arms are being delivered as the United States is also shipping new types of nonlethal gear to rebels. That aid includes vehicles, sophisticated communications equipment and advanced combat medical kits.

      Same article - Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), who has pressed the Obama administration to do more to help the rebels, said he felt embarrassed when he met with Syrians along the Turkish border three weeks ago.

      “It was humiliating,” he said in an interview Wednesday night. “The president had announced that we would be providing lethal aid, and not a drop of it had begun. They were very short on ammunition, and the weapons had not begun to flow.”

  5. SAME SOURCE:

    While the State Department is coordinating nonlethal aid, the CIA is overseeing the delivery of weaponry and other lethal equipment to the rebels. An opposition official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss covert arms transfers, said U.S. intelligence personnel have begun delivering long-promised light weapons and ammunition to rebel groups in the past couple of weeks.

    The weaponry “doesn’t solve all the needs the guys have, but it’s better than nothing,” the opposition official said. He added that Washington remains reluctant to give the rebels what they most desire: antitank and antiaircraft weapons.

    The CIA shipments are to flow through a network of clandestine bases in Turkey and Jordan that were expanded over the past year as the agency sought to help Middle Eastern allies, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, direct weapons to moderate Syrian rebel forces.

    The CIA declined to comment.

    The distribution of vehicles and communications equipment is part of an effort to direct U.S. aid to Syrian rebels in a more assertive, targeted manner. Before Ward established a team of about two dozen diplomats and aid workers in southern Turkey, Washington was doing little more than paying for truckloads of food and medicine for Syrian rebels. U.S. officials concede that the shipments often went to the most accessible, and not necessarily the neediest, places.

  7. DON”T YOU LOVE THE SMELL OF STUPIDITY IN THE MORNING? - SAME ARTICLE

    Ward’s team — working primarily out of hotel lobbies — has spent the past few months studying the demographics and dynamics of communities where extremists are making inroads. Targeted U.S. aid, he said, can be used to empower emerging local leaders who are moderate and to jump-start basic services while dimming the appeal of extremists.

    “We feel we’re able to get these local councils off to a good start,” said Ward, a veteran U.S. Agency for International Development official who has worked in Libya, Afghanistan and Pakistan. “We vet individuals who are getting our assistance to make sure they are not affiliated with terror organizations.”

    The assistance to local communities includes training in municipal management as well as basic infrastructure such as garbage trucks, ambulances and firetrucks. The areas receiving this aid are carefully selected, U.S. officials said, noting that extremist groups, including Jabhat al-Nusra, are delivering services to communities newly under rebel control.

    “If you see new firetrucks and ambulances in places where al-Nusra is trying to win hearts and minds, this might not be a coincidence,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to explain details of a sensitive strategy.

    The initiatives are part of a $250 million effort to support moderate factions of the Syrian opposition. Of that, the United States has earmarked $26.6 million in aid for the Supreme Military Council. The delivery that began this week does not include items that the rebels have long identified as priorities: night-
    vision goggles and body armor.

    ReplyDelete
  8. ...Ghanem said the effect of U.S. assistance is limited by the number of proxies that Washington must use to deliver it. U.S. officials in Turkey rely on a network of contractors and subcontractors to deliver the aid.

    Ward said he hopes the assistance efforts will position the United States to have strong relationships in a postwar Syria.

    “When you finally have a free Syrian government, you will know them and they will know us,” Ward said. “We will have been working with them week after week, month after month. These won’t be strangers.”

  10. Where did all this insanity come from? Rewind the clock to 14 September 2013 Huffington Post

    WASHINGTON -- As Jews all over the world marked the start of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, on Friday, uncertainty loomed over both the U.S. and Israel as to what role the United States, Russia, and the international community would play in resolving the brutal civil war in Syria.

    On Tuesday night, President Obama made the case to the American public that Congress should authorize airstrikes against Syrian President Bashar Assad's military, in response to Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons. But as Obama was honing his argument Monday, Russia came forward with a surprise proposal whereby Assad would surrender his vast stockpile of non-conventional weapons, and by doing so, avert a U.S.-led military intervention.

    The outlines of the plan were welcomed by the international community, and on Friday night Secretary of State John Kerry remained in Geneva, where he and his Russian counterpart were working to hammer out the specifics of a plan to secure, and destroy, Assad's chemical arsenal.

    On Capitol Hill, however, America's leading pro-Israel lobbying group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), was making a different set of calculations.

    Beginning Monday, the advocacy group had dispatched more than 200 activists to Washington, where they urged members of Congress to pass resolutions in both the House and the Senate authorizing the airstrikes on Syria. According to an AIPAC official who spoke to The Times of Israel, the group's representatives secured more than 300 meetings, which the official described as "cordial" and "challenging." A spokesman for AIPAC declined to comment for this story.

    But practically as soon as it began, AIPAC's widely publicized push for the authorization vote in Congress drew criticism from the same country it aims to support -- Israel. "In case you were wondering, AIPAC is not Israel" blared the headline of an editorial Monday in the prominent Israeli newspaper Haaretz. AIPAC "is not authorized to express Israeli policy," the editorial said. "Israelis and Israeli decision-makers should give up any pretense of intervening" in American military decisions.

  12. AIPAC

    By MANU RAJU | 9/5/13 5:46 PM EDT

    The powerful pro-Israel lobby AIPAC is planning to launch a major lobbying campaign to push wayward lawmakers to back the resolution authorizing U.S. strikes against Syria, sources said Thursday.

    Officials say that some 250 Jewish leaders and AIPAC activists will storm the halls on Capitol Hill beginning next week to persuade lawmakers that Congress must adopt the resolution or risk emboldening Iran’s efforts to build a nuclear weapon. They are expected to lobby virtually every member of Congress, arguing that “barbarism” by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated, and that failing to act would “send a message” to Tehran that the U.S. won’t stand up to hostile countries’ efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction, according to a source with the group.


    “History tells us that ambiguity [in U.S. actions] invites aggression,” said the AIPAC source who asked not to be named. The source added the group will now be engaged in a “major mobilization” over the issue.

      AIPAC certainly isn't helpful but I doubt we need any in further screwing up the situation in Iraq/Syria.

      The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq, The Telegraph has learnt.

      Some of America’s closest allies say President Barack Obama and other Western leaders, including David Cameron, are failing to show strategic leadership over the world’s gravest security crisis for decades.

      They now say they are willing to “go it alone” in supplying heavy weapons to the Kurds, even if means defying the Iraqi authorities and their American backers, who demand all weapons be channelled through Baghdad.

      High level officials from Gulf and other states have told this newspaper that all attempts to persuade Mr Obama of the need to arm the Kurds directly as part of more vigorous plans to take on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have failed. The Senate voted down one attempt by supporters of the Kurdish cause last month.

      The officials say they are looking at new ways to take the fight to Isil without seeking US approval...

      Its been 10 months and Obama says we are still developing our strategy. That must be true. I certainly can't discern one in the the actions we take or don't take there.

      If there is an actually strategy in play in the ME it is worthy of the most paranoid conspiracy theorist.

  38. Iranian officials say they have armed Hamas for fight with Israel

    http://www.latimes.com/world/middleeast/la-fg-israel-gaza-hamas-iran-20140804-story.html

    Two senior Iranian officials told an Arabic-language television channel Monday that Tehran has supplied missile technology to Hamas for its fight against Israel.

    Revolutionary Guard commander Mohammad Ali Jafari warned in an interview with the Arabic channel of Iran's state Al-Alam television that Palestinian resistance to Israeli aggression is "endless and growing."

    Iran is prepared to support the Palestinian resistance with weapons and technology transfers, Jafari said, and makes no distinction between Shiite and Sunni factions of the embattled populations under Israeli blockade.

    "The Zionist regime [of Israel] will collapse soon as a result of the unity among Shia and Sunni Muslims and we are ready for that day," Jafari said.

    Mohsen Rezaei, another former guard commander who is now a senior advisor to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Tehran had already provided Hamas with missile-building technology being used in fighting against Israel Defense Forces in the Gaza Strip.

    "Palestinian resistance missiles are the blessings of Iran's transfer of technology," Rezaei was quoted as telling the broadcaster.

    More than 3,000 rockets have been launched by Hamas in recent weeks from the blockaded seaside Palestinian enclave, spurring an Israeli air offensive July 8 and a ground operation nine days later aimed at ridding Gaza of its tunnels and missile-firing sites.

    Palestinian resistance missiles are the blessings of Iran's transfer of technology.
    - Mohsen Rezaei, advisor to Iran's supreme religious leader
    Rezaei said he had asked Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to provide air defense systems to Gaza to protect Palestinians from Israeli war planes, which have carried out more than 4,600 air strikes on the tiny coastal strip since the latest Hamas-Israel battle began four weeks ago.

      Hamas aiding ISIS?

      Got a link?

      The reason I ask.

      Fight against IS draws Hamas, Egypt closer

      Relations between Hamas and Egypt have taken an unexpected gradual turn for the better, with Cairo expressing satisfaction with Hamas’ security approach toward Egypt, especially in the border areas. On June 25, Egyptian military officials praised Hamas for its role in Gaza, its policing of the smuggling tunnels at the border and preventing Salafi jihadists from infiltrating from and into Sinai.
      .
      Relations between Hamas and Egypt, strained since the 2013 ouster of President Mohammed Morsi, appear to be improving with Saudi mediation.
      .
      This unexpected expression of gratitude followed a June 6 ruling by Egypt's Court of Urgent Matters overturning the Feb. 28 ruling designating Hamas a terrorist organization, a move that had exacerbated already heightened tensions between the two sides. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zahri welcomed the court’s decision, calling it the rectification of a mistake and confirmation of Cairo's regional role in the Palestinian issue. He said the ruling will have positive repercussions for relations between the two parties.

      Hamas' foreign relations chief, Osama Hamdan, told Al-Monitor, “This decision is a step in the right direction toward the Palestinians and the beginning of a new relationship with Hamas. This is about strategic relations with regard to Egypt’s role in the Palestinian cause in light of Hamas’ nonintervention policy in Cairo’s affairs...”

  40. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant moved ominously close to Israel’s borders Wednesday, July 1 – not as predicted in the north, but in the south, from the Sinai Peninsula. There, ISIS followed up on its Ramadan terror outrages in France, Tunisia, Kuwait and Kobani, with a massive assault on Egyptian forces and reportedly capturing the northern Sinai town of Sheikh Zuwaid close to the Israeli and Gaza Strip borders. Confirmation of this would mean that the MFO facility at Gora is under ISIS siege. It would also mean that the Islamists had captured their first Egyptian town, a victory comparable to seizure of the Iraqi city of Ramadi. In the fierce 10-hour battle for the town, at least 200 Egyptian soldiers, terrorists and civilians were killed.
    Not just a terrorist attack, ISIS launched a full-scale military offensive, starting with mortar fire and suicide bombings against five Egyptian military checkpoints.
    Using a tactic similar to that employed in the capture of the Iraqi town of Ramadi last month, ISIS gunmen followed this initial assault by riding in on minivans, backed by heavy mortar fire, to storm the positions held by stunned Egyptian troops. Altogether some 20 Egyptian army positions were attacked in and around Sheikh Zuwaid.
    Egyptian troop reinforcements setting out from El Arish to the northeast to aid the beleaguered force, went up on mine and bomb traps secretly planted around their camps and police stations. Egyptian Apache assault helicopters striking the ISIS force themselves faced ground fire from shoulder-borne anti-air missiles.
    The Islamists are additionally said to have taken Egyptian prisoners as hostages.
    As the fighting grew fierce during Wednesday, Israel shut its border crossings with Egypt and the Gaza Strip, and sent reinforcements south in case the jihadis launched an attack on Israel from northern Sinai.
    Miilitary sources also report that US Middle East forces located in Jordan and at Sharm el-Sheikh are on the ready in case the Islamic State decides to attack the US officers and men at the Multinational Force (MFO) facility in Sinai, which is located near the Sheikh Zuwaid battlefield.
    The ISIS Sinai offensive is part and parcel of the reign of terror launched last Friday by Yassin Sahli when he beheaded his French boss, and Seifeddine Rezgui, who murdered 39 holidaymakers on a Tunisian beach. Standing ready for the Islamist offensive in Sinai were the jihadis of the Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, which recently declared Sinai a province of the Islamic State and took an oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
    ISIS draws on two additional major sources for its fighting manpower: the infrastructure it established in turbulent Libya for training and arming jihadis to cross the Egyptian border into Sinai; and the fatal attraction its radicalizing ideology holds for young Muslims who are taught that the brutal murder of Islam’s foes is a cleansing and purifying act.

    Report: U.S. blocking shipments of heavy arms to the Kurds fighting ISIS
    By Thomas Lifson

    Does President Obama even want to defeat ISIS? If so, why is the United States blocking shipments of heavy armaments to the Kurds? They should be our best friends in the Muslim world and have demonstrated their capacity as excellent fighters with boots on the ground in fighting ISIS. Which, not so incidentally, wants to kill their men and make sex slaves of their women.

    Con Coughlin of the U.K. Telegraph reports:

    The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq, The Telegraph has learnt.

    Some of America’s closest allies say President Barack Obama and other Western leaders, including David Cameron, are failing to show strategic leadership over the world’s gravest security crisis for decades.

    They now say they are willing to “go it alone” in supplying heavy weapons to the Kurds, even if means defying the Iraqi authorities and their American backers, who demand all weapons be channelled through Baghdad.

    High level officials from Gulf and other states have told this newspaper that all attempts to persuade Mr Obama of the need to arm the Kurds directly as part of more vigorous plans to take on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have failed. The Senate voted down one attempt by supporters of the Kurdish cause last month.

    The officials say they are looking at new ways to take the fight to Isil without seeking US approval.

    I am expecting that Hillary will have nothing to say about this, and in fact won't even be asked. But it is insane, unless Obama's plan is something other than what he claims.

    http://forward.com/articles/201764/how-politics-and-lies-triggered-an-unintended-war/?p=all#ixzz3UnjENhVf

    but I can get you more detail as I anticipated this coming up again and bookmarked it.

    No, determined to torpedo the reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah, Bibi took the tragic death of three kids and milked them for three weeks which allowed him time to round up hundreds of Hamas members in the West Bank along with their leaders and whip the Israeli public into a frenzy of hate through anti-Palestinian agitprop.

    The resulting death on both sides was tragic but perhaps the most pitiful aspect of the whole affair was the hell he put the families of the three Jewish boys though needlessly. After the first day, the authorities knew that the boys were dead and where to look for them; yet Bibi kept the families on tenterhooks for three weeks, wondering whether they were alive or dead, while he played his games.

    Sick.

  51. One of their most beautiful young maidens ran the early morning Hello Show.

    She met and married a Native American from another tribe in the Astronaut program, so she is gone from here now.

    I finally was able to fulfull and old long of mine, just before she left.

    It happened at Albertsons.

    Ahead of me in line I said in booming voice 'I have always wanted to tell you you run the best early show on the tube !!

    After a good chat, well, that was that.....

  52. She married one of these, Quartmire -

    I do not know which one. She was extremely happy when she left the area, promising to come back and see us all as soon as she could.

    He grandmothers used to dig camus roots with paleolithic digging sticks on the high Camus Prairie.

    You should not morn the inevitable Quirkmire, and try to call it a disaster.

    With the coming of the farmers, the cities, the universities, the law, now we have Native American flying to the moon, and beyond, based simply on their skill level in the tests given to all.

    The changeover from the Paleolithic to settled life has been a blessing to billions.....

    It has actually created something of a need for your 'skill' Quirt, that of bilking the unwary out of their money.

    So, kindly, take your perpetual moaning and groaning and the "they are all dicks" craparooo into you own mythology, but leave it out of here.

    You got a mentally, with slim pickings there, and are as boring as hell.

    You are an oaf, an eastern big city dumb shit oaf, ill read, ill mannered, no thought, just as I originally thought, a Detroit fraud, a doofus.....

  53. When Quirk first presented his noble self here, he said how he loved to drive around Detroit, Michigan, with a 16er between his legs.

    "I drive better drunk than sober" he claimed.

    He liked to drive round and round and round Detroit with the suace on.

    It's fun, I see things, he says.

    Over the years I've gotten to know Quart.

    He has zero knowledge of history, nor of philosophy, nor of mythology, nor of politics.

    He is a blank, whose constant refrain is:

    'They are all dicks'

    He used to display some decent humor but that has evaporated, and at this point, since he has zero to say, a far a way pasture is needed, where he can munch grass, fart, and whinny "They are all dicks"

    All right, I will say it:


    Quirk has outlived his usefulness.

    A compassionate plan to deal with him is now needed.
