RUMORS OF WAR: Russia promises retaliation on Israel for ‘shot down’ plane in Syria, Middle East on “Brink”

RUMORS OF WAR: Russia promises retaliation on Israel for ‘shot down’ plane in Syria, Middle East on “Brink”
Russia has promised retaliation after Israeli airstrikes created a “dangerous situation” by performing unannounced attacks in Syria, resulting in a Soviet reconnaissance plane being accidentally shot down by Syrian Air Defence systems, the Kremlin has announced. The aircraft, which was used for electronic surveillance, disappeared from radar screens over Syria at about 8 PM BST (11 pm local time) on Monday.
It happened around the same time Israeli and French forces were launching targeted strikes in Syria. According to the Russian defense ministry, 15 people were on board the I1-29 turboprop plane at the time of its disappearance. But on Tuesday morning, following the French military denying involvement in the plane’s disappearance, RIA news agency reported the Kremlin has accused Israeli aircraft of deliberately creating a “dangerous” situation.

Russia’s biggest war games include sub hunt in Pacific…
Russian naval forces have conducted a submarine search using an anti-submarine ship and a helicopter in the Sea of Okhotsk as part of Russia’s largest-ever military exercises. About 3,200 troops from China have joined about 300,000 Russian troops for a week of war games in Siberia and the Far East, and over the Arctic and Pacific oceans. The maneuvers continue through Monday.
The naval exercise in the arm of the Pacific between Russia and Japan’s Hokkaido island featured the Russian destroyer Vice-Admiral Kulakov and a Ka-27 helicopter equipped to search for submarines. The Defense Ministry said Saturday’s also included MiG-31 and Su-35 fighter jets intercepting planes appearing to approach their zone without responding to ground control, and Tu-22 long-range bombers hitting targets resembling parked aircraft and warehouses.

RUMORS OF WAR: Germany could join a military alliance with the US, UK, and France if Syria tries another chemical attack

RUMORS OF WAR: Germany could join a military alliance with the US, UK, and France if Syria tries another chemical attack
Against the backdrop of potential chemical attacks by the Syrian regime in the province of Idlib, German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen is exploring how Germany can engage in military retaliatory actions against the army of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. BILD has learned the German Ministry of Defense is considering participating in the alliance of the USA, Great Britain and France in the future,
but only if Assad troops were to use chemical weapons against their own population again. In April 2018, the three powers flew air attacks against selected targets of the regime after the Syrian army attacked the city of Duma, near the capital Damascus, with chemical weapons. At the time, German Chancellor Angela Merkel had ruled out Germany’s participation in “military actions.”

Russia launches largest EVER war games alongside China
Russia launched Tuesday what it called its largest-ever military drills, with hundreds of thousands of troops taking part along with Chinese soldiers in a show of force NATO condemned as a rehearsal for “large-scale conflict.” President Vladimir Putin is expected to attend the games after hosting an economic forum in Russia’s far eastern city Vladivostok where his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping is one of the prominent guests.
The week-long war games dubbed “Vostok-2018″(East-2018) “have kicked off” in far eastern Russia, the defense ministry said. Taking part in the drills are around 300,000 soldiers, 36,000 military vehicles, 80 ships and 1,000 aircraft, helicopters and drones. Some 3,500 Chinese troops will take part in the games. The defense ministry released video footage of military vehicles, planes, helicopters and ships getting into position for the initial stage of the drills.

RUMORS OF WAR: Pentagon ‘routinely’ briefs Trump on ‘military options’ in case of chemical attack in Syria

RUMORS OF WAR: Pentagon ‘routinely’ briefs Trump on ‘military options’ in case of chemical attack in Syria
While no final decision has yet been made, a top US general says he’s involved in “routine dialogue” with Donald Trump to keep him informed about “military options” for retaliation in case “chemical weapons are used” in Syria. “We are in a dialogue, a routine dialogue, with the president to make sure he knows where we are with regard to planning in the event that chemical weapons are used,” Marine General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said on Saturday.
“He expects us to have military options and we have provided updates to him on the development of those military options.” Fears of a looming ‘chemical incident’ in Syria have intensified recently, as the Syrian government closes in on Islamist militants’ last major stronghold in Idlib province. Russia, for over a month, has been warning that the terrorists, cornered and desperate, are preparing a false-flag attack to frame Damascus and trigger a US-coalition intervention.

US Marines launch live-fire air assault into Syria desert in ‘strong message’ to Russia
More than 100 U.S. Marines launched an air assault in the southern Syrian desert backed by artillery fire to send a “strong message” to Russia not to send their forces inside a restricted area near an American military outpost, two U.S. defense officials have told Fox News. The show of forces comes as the leaders of Iran, Russia and Turkey are meeting Friday in Tehran to hammer out their next steps in the seven-
year Syrian civil war ahead of an expected offensive led by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces into the country’s northwest Idlib Province. On two separate occasions this month (Sept. 1 and Sept. 6), the Russian military warned its American counterparts of its intention to conduct a military operation in southern Syria near the At Tanf garrison where U.S. special operations forces are located.

WW3 WARNING: China UNLEASHES helicopters and warship at British Navy in South China Sea
THE Royal Navy was confronted by China's military might after a British warship passed close by Beijing-claimed Paracel Islands, in a move the Asian superpower has dubbed "provocation", with tensions escalating in the region.
By LATIFA YEDROUDJ

Chinese military warn US Navy not to fly over SECRET ISLAND
HMS Albion sailed passed Paracel Islands in a bid to assert the "freedom of navigation rights" and challenge China's "excessive claims" over the South China Sea.
Upon reaching the Islands, the warship was met by two Chinese helicopters and a frigate, but both sides reportedly remained calm during the stand off.
China's navy warned the British vessel to leave Chinese territorial waters.
China's Foreign Ministry added: "The relevant actions by the British ship violated Chinese law and relevant international law, and infringed on China's sovereignty.

China strongly opposes this and has lodged stern representations with the British side to express strong dissatisfaction.

"China strongly urges the British side to immediately stop such provocative actions, to avoid harming the broader picture of bilateral relations and regional peace and stability.

"China will continue to take all necessary measures to defend its sovereignty and security."

The 22,000 ton warship was packed with Royal Marines as it made its route to Hanoi where it docked on Monday after a deployment in and around Japan.

However, the Royal Navy insisted they did not enter the territorial disputed region but travelled twelve nautical miles away from the area, in accordance to the internationally recognised territorial limit.
In a statement, a Royal Navy spokesperson said: "HMS Albion exercised her rights of freedom of navigation in full compliance with international law and norms."
The Paracel Islands are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan, as countries in the region compete over territorial claims within the South China Sea.

Dr Euan Graham, a Senior Fellow at the Lowy Institute in Australia, told the Daily Telegraph: "The UK has impressively deployed three Royal Navy surface ships to Asian waters this year, after a long gap between ship visits, to this part of the world."

He added: "Also, the fact that Albion was coming from Japan and on her way to Vietnam gives the signal a sharper edge to China."
In June, UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson announced plans to send three warship to the South China Sea "to send the strongest of signals" to countries that "don't play by the rules".
This follows US Secretary of Defence, James Mattis warning to China, declaring the country would suffer "consequences" if it continued to militarise the South China Sea.
The US has previously announced hopes for more international initiative towards challenging Chinese claimed territories in the South China Sea, after Beijing claimed reefs, islands and built missile systems in the disputed region.

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel threatens attack on Iranian assets installed in Iraq
Israel has threatened to attack any Iranian military assets in Iraq as it has done in Syria, following reports Tehran has moved ballistic missiles closer to the Jewish state. Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s defense minister, signaled on Monday it would “contend” with Iranian provocations wherever they are found. “We are certainly monitoring everything that is happening in Syria, and regarding Iranian
threats, we are not limiting ourselves just to Syrian territory. This also needs to be clear,” Mr Lieberman told a conference in Jerusalem. Asked if this included Iraq, he responded: “I am saying that we will contend with any Iranian threat, and it doesn’t matter from where it comes … Israel’s freed.” Tehran has transferred dozens of short-range ballistic missiles to Shia proxies in Iraq over the last few months, according to a Reuters report published over the weekend.

RUMORS OF WAR: With Ships and Missiles, China Ready to Challenge U.S. Navy in Pacific…
In April, on the 69th anniversary of the founding of China’s navy, the country’s first domestically built aircraft carrier stirred from its berth in the port city of Dalian on the Bohai Sea, tethered to tugboats for a test of its seaworthiness. “China’s first homegrown aircraft carrier just moved a bit, and the United States, Japan and India squirmed,” a military news website crowed, referring to the three nations China
views as its main rivals. Not long ago, such boasts would have been dismissed as the bravado of a second-string military. No longer. A modernization program focused on naval and missile forces has shifted the balance of power in the Pacific in ways the United States and its allies are only beginning to digest. While China lags in projecting firepower on a global scale, it can now challenge U.S. military supremacy in the places that matter most to it: the waters around Taiwan and in the disputed South China Sea.

RUMORS OF WAR: Damascus air defenses reportedly placed on “high alert” for fear of US attack
Syrian air defenses were placed on high alert Monday, according to a report in the pro-regime news site Al Masdar. A source told the newspaper that the Mazzeh airbase was preparing to defend against a possible US missile attack on Damascus. Earlier in the day a top Russian official said the US was
bolstering its military forces in the Middle East in preparation for a strike against Syrian government forces, according to the Russian news agency TASS.Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters, “the US is making preparations for a missile attack on Syria, which will follow after a staged chemical weapons attack in the province of Idlib, blamed on the Syrian government.”

The US and its allies are preparing new airstrikes on Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said, adding that militants are poised to stage a chemical weapons attack in order to frame Damascus and provide a pretext for the strikes.
The attack would be used as a pretext for US, UK and French airstrikes on Syrian targets, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov said. USS ‘The Sullivans,’ an Arleigh Burke-class Aegis guided missile destroyer, was already deployed to the Persian Gulf a couple of days ago, he added.

The destroyer has 56 cruise missiles on board, according to data from the Russian Defence Ministry. A US Rockwell B-1 Lancer, a supersonic bomber equipped with 24 cruise missiles, has also been deployed at the Qatari Al Udeid Airbase.

National Security Advisor John Bolton ©️ Global Look PressBolton calls on Al-Qaeda to stage more chemical attacks in Syria
The provocations are being prepared by militants from Al-Nusra Front (now known as Tahrir al-Sham) in Idlib province, northwestern Syria,

In order to stage the attack, some eight canisters of chlorine were delivered in to village near Jisr al-Shughur city for the terrorists’ use, he added. A separate group of militants, prepped by private British security company Olive, have also arrived in the area. The group will be disguised as volunteers from the White Helmets group and will simulate a rescue operation involving locals purportedly injured in the attack, according to the military official.

According to the Defense Ministry spokesman, recent statements by US National Security Advisor John Bolton – in which he threatened to bomb Syria – could be interpreted as an implicit confirmation of such airstrikes. On August 22, Bolton stated that “... if the Syrian regime uses chemical weapons, we will respond very strongly and they really ought to think about this a long time.”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov warned Washington against new reckless moves in Syria, RIA Novosti reported. “We hear ultimatums from Washington, including those made in public,” the top official said, apparently referring to Bolton’s recent remarks.

According to Ryabkov, the US is aiming to destabilize Syria and create new pretexts for regime change in Damascus. “Again, we are witnessing serious escalation of the situation [in Syria],” he added.

In April, the US, UK and France unleashed a bombing campaign on Syria. The airstrikes were carried out in response to an alleged gas attack in Douma on April 7, which the West blamed on Bashar Assad’s government. The operation started hours before a team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) was due to reach the city.

Back then, Syrian defenses were scrambled to repel some 103 cruise missiles and air-to-surface missiles launched at civilian and military targets by the Western trio. It managed to intercept at least 71 of them, the Russian Defense Ministry said at the time.

China to join Russian nuclear war games for first time…
Russia and China will hold a large-scale military exercise next month that will include simulated nuclear weapons attacks, according to American defense officials. The People’s Liberation Army will send more than 3,200 troops, 900 pieces of military equipment, and 30 aircraft to Russia for the exercise known as Vostok-18, or East-18, the Chinese Defense Ministry said, noting the exercises will involve practicing
maneuver defense, live firing of weapons, and counterattack. “We urge Russia to take steps to share information regarding its exercises and operations in Europe to clearly convey its intentions and minimize and potential misunderstanding,” Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon said when asked about Vostok-18. Additionally, the joint Russian-Chinese exercises scheduled for Sept. 11 through 15 will include military forces from Mongolia for the first time.

RUMORS OF WAR: Hezbollah Chief Claims Terrorist Group Stronger than IDF, Ready for War With Israel!

RUMORS OF WAR: Hezbollah Chief Claims Terrorist Group Stronger than IDF, Ready for War With Israel!
In a televised address marking the 12th anniversary of the end of the 34-day Second Lebanon War with Israel in 2006, Hezbollah general secretary Hassan Nasrallah boasted that his forces were stronger than the Israeli army and prepared for a fresh war with Israel. Nasrallah claimed that the Trump administration was “mistaken” in thinking sanctions would lead to riots in Iran that would topple the regime, or even force Iran to reduce support for activity abroad.
Last week the US began restoring sanctions that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, which President Donald Trump withdrew from in May. The administration says the renewed sanctions are meant to pressure Tehran to halt its support for international terrorism, its military activity in the Middle East and its ballistic missile programs.

China Folds to Trump’s Pressure, Quietly Removes Oil Tariff
BY CILLIAN ZEAL
AUGUST 11, 2018 AT 8:12AM
Share on Facebook Tweet Email Print
China has removed crude oil from its list of items being slapped with a 25 percent tariff, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.
It seems unusual for those used to America being an energy importer to hear about energy exports, particularly to a country as big as China. However, America’s role in petroleum production has steadily increased for quite some time now, meaning industry in China was about to feel a serious pinch.
“Over the past two years China has become the biggest buyer of U.S. crude-oil exports, last year taking a fifth of the total,” Chuin-Wei Yap wrote in the Journal.
Advertisement - story continues below
Beijing had originally announced that oil was going to be on the list of items slapped with a 25 percent tariff issued in response to the Trump administration’s tariffs.
However, when the final list of $16 billion in tariffed goods was issued on Wednesday, oil was conspicuously absent.

“China’s Ministry of Commerce didn’t explain the omission and didn’t immediately respond to questions,” Yap reported.
China still called the measures “unreasonable” and said they had taken the measures “to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests and the multilateral trading system.” However, the measure seemed to be more about safeguarding the interests of Sinopec Group, the state-owned Beijing-based energy giant.
“Sinopec did a lot of lobbying work with the government,” an individual with knowledge of the situation told Reuters. They said the petroleum manufacturer used its clout to move the decision of the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Commerce.
“The U.S. will be the single largest source of new oil supplies outside OPEC. It’s in China’s interest to diversify supplies,” another source told Reuters.

“Removing crude imports, worth roughly $8 billion annually based on Sinopec’s earlier forecast of 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) for 2018, also gives Beijing room to maneuver in future negotiations with Washington, especially as it may soon lose some Iranian oil shipments due to reimposed U.S. sanctions,” Reuters noted.
And that could mean big things in the trade war.
“The issue for the Chinese is that any tariff on U.S. exports, (including) oil, will likely hurt their economy disproportionately because they have to import,” Kenneth Medlock, senior director of the Center for Energy Studies at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy, told Reuters.
“U.S. exports will find a home regardless of how the global supply deck is reshuffled.”
Even though oil won’t be on the list when the new tariffs go into effect on August 23, diesel, kerosene, lubricants and propane will be included.

However, this is a pretty major blink from China — and a huge win from the Trump administration.
If Beijing’s need for oil brings them to the table, that’s yet another bargaining chip the United States can use to get a more sane trade policy

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel And Hamas Are On The Verge Of War As More Than 150 Rockets Rain Down On The Holy Land Overnight

RUMORS OF WAR: Israel And Hamas Are On The Verge Of War As More Than 150 Rockets Rain Down On The Holy Land Overnight
(By Michael Snyder) This is the closest that Israel and Hamas have been to war since the last major conflict in 2014. There had been ongoing negotiations regarding a long-term ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, but those plans appear to be on hold after a huge escalation of the violence in the last 24 hours. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gathered with his defense minister and other top military officials late last night, and at this hour it is unclear what will happen next.
If Hamas stops firing rockets, perhaps ceasefire negotiations can resume. But if they keep firing rockets, it could lead to all-out war and all hell could break loose in the Middle East. From Wednesday night through Thursday morning, more than 150 “projectiles” were fired into Israel by members of Hamas. The following comes from the Jerusalem Post… Red Alert sirens continued to sound in the South throughout the night, with the latest salvo fired at 05:45 am Thursday morning.

Iran’s plan that puts the entire West in danger
By Leah Rosenberg - August 7, 2018 7955 0
VIDEO
The Iranian regime wants to destroy Israel. But will they stop there? Their future plans put the entire West in danger, and they must be stopped!

Iranian Regime Calls to Destroy Israel
Iran has been seeking Israel’s destruction for decades. They constantly threaten Israel. Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) said, “We have 100,000 missiles in Lebanon ready to hit Israel.” The Iranian regime spends billions of dollars on war and nuclear weapons. Their entire being represents destruction. Will the UN do anything about that? The international world needs to speak out.

Israel wants peace. Iran wants to destroy. It’s that clear.

Iran Blames Israel for Everything
Not only does the Iranian regime seek to destroy Israel, but they also blame Israel for anything they can, even if it is ridiculous. For example, they blamed Israel for their drought. Apparently, Israel has control over the weather in Iran. That is beyond absurd! But for the Iranian regime, nothing, or rather everything, is absurd. Furthermore, Iranian leaders don’t take control over their own country and the needs of their people. They just blame others. They also spend money that could be used toward helping their people and instead use it for terrorism.

Who Will be Next?
The frightening reality is that Iran is not only threatening Israel. They want to destroy the West. Anyone who is against their terrorist regime is a target. Hossein Salami said, “If Europe wants to turn into a threat, we will increase the range of our missiles.” Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said, “Iran’s 2,000-kilometer missile range could cover most of American interest.”

It is clear that the Iranian regime’s goal of destruction extends far beyond just Israel. Iran is certainly not hiding what their future plans are.

And they must be stopped!

The so-called snapback sanctions target Iran's purchases of U.S. dollars, metals trading and other dealings, coal, industrial-related software and its auto sector.

The officials added that Trump was ready to meet with Iran's leaders at any time in an effort to forge a new agreement with Tehran after President Donald Trump withdrew from a 2015 nuclear deal in May.
"There is no question that these financial sanctions are going to continue to bring significant financial pressure," one official told reporters on a conference call.

Washington brought back some of the measures against Iran that it suspended under the 2015 deal between world powers and Tehran under which international sanctions were lifted in return for curbs on Iran's nuclear program.

Some of the sanctions came back on Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. EDT (0401 GMT). The United States also plans to re-introduce potentially more damaging sanctions on Iranian oil in November.

The renewed sanctions are part of the broader strategy under Trump aimed at cutting off the Iranian leadership's access to resources.

They are aimed at modifying Iran's behavior not bring about a "regime change" targeting President Hassan Rouhani, the officials added.

The officials said the Iranian government's handling of current social and labor protests in were concerning.

"We are deeply concerned about reports of Iranian regime’s violence against unarmed citizens," one official said. "The United States supports the Iranian people’s right to peacefully protest against corruption and oppression without fear of reprisal," the official added.

Trump "will meet with the Iranian leadership at any time to discuss a real comprehensive deal that will contain their regional ambitions, will end their malign behavior and deny them any path to a nuclear weapon," one official said.

Asked about any possible exemptions to the renewed sanctions, officials said they would examine any requests on a case-by-case basis.

U.S. official: Trump's peace plan will cause discomfort to both Israel and Palestinians


The U.S. is bracing for cyberattacks Iran could launch in retaliation for the re-imposition of sanctions this week by U.S. President Donald Trump, cybersecurity and intelligence experts say.

Concern over that cyber threat has been rising since May, when Trump pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal, under which the U.S. and other world powers eased economic sanctions in exchange for curbs on Iran’s nuclear program. The experts say the threat would intensify following Washington’s move Tuesday to re-impose economic restrictions on Tehran.

“While we have no specific threats, we have seen an increase in chatter related to Iranian threat activity over the past several weeks,” said Priscilla Moriuchi, director of strategic threat development at Recorded Future, a global real-time cyber threat intelligence company. The Massachusetts-based company predicted back in May that the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear agreement would provoke a cyber response from the Iranian government within two to four months.


U.S. intelligence agencies have singled out Iran as one of the main foreign cyber threats facing America, along with Russia, China and North Korea. A wave of attacks that U.S. authorities blamed on Iran between 2012 and 2014 targeted banks and caused tens of millions of dollars in damage. They also targeted but failed to penetrate critical infrastructure.

Iran denies using its cyber capabilities for offensive purposes, and accuses the U.S. of targeting Iran. Several years ago, the top-secret Stuxnet computer virus destroyed centrifuges involved in Iran’s contested nuclear program. Stuxnet, which is widely believed to be an American and Israeli creation, caused thousands of centrifuges at Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility to spin themselves to destruction at the height of the West’s fears over Iran’s program.

“The United States has been the most aggressive country in the world in offensive cyber activity and publicly boasted about attacking targets across the world,” said Alireza Miryousefi, spokesman for Iran’s diplomatic mission at the United Nations, contending that Iran’s cyber capabilities are “exclusively for defensive purposes.”

Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who heads the elite Quds Force of Iran’s hard-line paramilitary Revolutionary Guard, has sounded more ominous, warning late last month about Iran’s capabilities in “asymmetric war,” a veiled reference to nontraditional warfare that could include cyber attacks.


The Trump administration says it re-imposed sanctions on Iran to prevent its aggression — denying it the funds it needs to finance terrorism, its missile program and forces in conflicts in Yemen and Syria.



The sanctions restarted Tuesday target U.S. dollar financial transactions, Iran’s automotive sector and the purchase of commercial planes and metals, including gold. Even stronger sanctions targeting Iran’s oil sector and central bank are to be re-imposed in early November. European leaders have expressed deep regret about the U.S. actions. They hit Iran at a time when its unemployment is rising, the country’s currency has collapsed and demonstrators are taking to the streets to protest social issues and labor unrest.

Norm Roule, former Iran manager for the office of the Director of National Intelligence, said he thinks Tehran will muster its cyber forces in response.

“I think there is a good chance Iran will use cyber, probably not an attack that is so destructive that it would fragment its remaining relationship with Europe, but I just don’t think the Iranians will think there is much cost to doing this,” Roule said. “And it’s a good way to show their capacity to inflict economic cost against the United States.”


“Iran’s cyber activities against the world have been the most consequential, costly and aggressive in the history of the internet, more so than Russia. ... The Iranians are destructive cyber operators,” Roule said, adding that Iranian hackers have, at times, impersonated Israeli and Western cyber security firm websites to harvest log-in information.

The office of Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats declined to comment Tuesday on the likelihood that Iran will answer the sanctions with cyber operations against the U.S. When the U.S. pulled out of the nuclear deal, the FBI issued a warning saying that hackers in Iran “could potentially use a range of computer network operations — from scanning networks for potential vulnerabilities to data-deletion attacks — against U.S.-based networks in response to the U.S. government’s withdrawal” from the nuclear pact.

Accenture Security, a global consulting, managing and technology company, also warned Tuesday that the new sanctions would “likely to push that country to intensify state-sponsored cyber threat activities,” particularly if Iran fails to keep its European counterparts committed to the nuclear pact.

Josh Ray, the firm’s managing director for cyber defense, said it hasn’t seen any evidence that Iran has launched any new cyber operations, but he said Iran has the capability to do it and has historically operated in a retaliatory manner.

“This still remains a highly capable, espionage-related type threat,” Ray said. “Organizations need to take this threat seriously. They need to understand how their business could potentially be impacted.”

Recorded Future’s Moriuchi anticipated that businesses most at risk were those victimized in Iranian cyberattacks between 2012 and 2014 — they include banks and financial services, government departments, critical infrastructure providers, and oil and energy.



Those cyberattacks cost nearly 50 financial institutions tens of millions of dollars. The repeated attacks disabled bank websites and kept hundreds of thousands of customers from accessing their online accounts. U.S. prosecutors indicted several Iranians, alleging they worked at the behest of the Iranian government.

One defendant allegedly targeted the computer systems of the Bowman Dam in Rye, New York.

RUMORS OF WAR: Netanyahu threatens Iran with ‘all Israel’s arms’ if Tehran blocks key waterway off Yemen

RUMORS OF WAR: Netanyahu threatens Iran with ‘all Israel’s arms’ if Tehran blocks key waterway off Yemen
Benjamin Netanyahu has lashed out at Israel’s arch-foe Iran, vowing that any attempt by Tehran to block the key waterway off Yemen’s coast would be met by force from the “international coalition” and Israel in particular. The harsh statements by the Israeli PM, who was speaking at a graduation ceremony for naval officers on Wednesday, were referring to the recent Houthi attack on a Saudi oil tanker off Yemen’s western coast.
The Saudi-led coalition has repeatedly said the Houthis are armed and supported by Iran, but both the group and Tehran deny the claims. Yet, Netanyahu branded the incident “a sharp clash with Iran’s satellites who tried to sabotage international shipping” at the mouth of the Red Sea. The Saudi-led coalition insists that its oil tanker was attacked by the Houthis in the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait located between Yemen and Eritrea and Djibouti on the Arabian Peninsula.

New report suggests that Syria, Iraq and Turkey may soon enter “Water Wars”

New report suggests that Syria, Iraq and Turkey may soon enter “Water Wars”
The next war in the Middle East could be fought over water as Iraq, Syria and Turkey scramble to assert claims to two vital rivers that run through the region, according to a new report. Nabil al-Samman, a Syrian expert on international waters, made the case for an upcoming “water war” in an article published Friday by Saudi newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat. The article defines the term as being used to
refer in the Mediterranean to “the use of water as a weapon in order to control its sources, or the diversion of water as a commercial commodity controlled by powerful upstream states for political ends.” The piece outlines a decades-long history of difficult relations and devastating conflicts that have set the stage for a potential upcoming crisis between Syria, Iraq and Turkey. “When the sounds of guns and war drums fade in Syria and Iraq, new tensions may arise because of water, especially in their conflict with Turkey, from which the Euphrates and Tigris rivers flow,” the report read.

North Korea working on new missiles according to officials
North Korea appears to be building new ballistic missiles despite recent warming ties with the Trump administration and pledges to denuclearise, reports say. Unnamed US officials told the Washington Post that spy satellites had spotted continuing activity at a site that has produced ballistic missiles. Reuters quotes an official as saying it is unclear how far the work has gone.
Donald Trump met North Korea’s Kim Jong-un in Singapore in June. After the first meeting between sitting leaders from the two countries, the two men pledged to work towards denuclearisation. Mr Trump later said North Korea was “no longer a nuclear threat”. But Mr Trump was criticised at home for making concessions without securing any firm commitment from Mr Kim to end the nuclear and missile programmes.

RUMORS OF WAR: Iranian general warns Trump: ‘War will destroy everything you own’…
Iran’s Quds force chief Qassem Soleimani warned U.S. President Donald Trump against war on Thursday, saying it would “destroy all that you possess”, the website of Iran’s Arabic language Al Alam TV reported.
“You know that this war will destroy all that you possess. You will start this war but we will be the ones to impose its end. Therefore you have to be careful about insulting the Iranian people and the president of our Republic,” Soleimani said in a speech, as reported by Al Alam in Arabic.

RUMORS OF WAR: Syria Threatens to Respond after Israel Shoots Down Fighter Jet over Israeli Airspace

RUMORS OF WAR: Syria Threatens to Respond after Israel Shoots Down Fighter Jet over Israeli Airspace
A Syrian official said his country will respond “at the appropriate time,” after Israel shot down a Syrian fighter jet over Israeli airspace Tuesday. Air raid sirens sounded in northern Israel for a second straight day, and Israeli forces on the Golan Heights remain on high alert as the war inside Syria rages. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made sure that Russian President Vladimir Putin knows where Israel’s red lines are in Syria.

And one of them is the Golan Heights, where Syrian jets are moving way too close for Israel’s comfort. “Our air defense systems identified a Syrian Air Force jet that took off from the T-4 Syrian Air Force Base and penetrated Israeli airspace. This is a gross violation of the 1974 Separation of Forces agreement with Syria. I have reiterated and made clear that we will not accept any such violation,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.

US President Donald Trump has said that he is willing to meet with his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani with no preconditions. “Anytime they want,” he told reporters, “if they want to meet, I’ll meet.”
Trump made his comments while speaking to reporters after a White House meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conti on Monday. “I would certainly meet with Iran, if they were ready to meet,” he said.
A self-described negotiating genius, Trump added that he would “meet with anybody.”

While Trump and his cabinet have taken a hardline approach to Iran, Trump has threatened foreign adversaries with war before, and then softened his tone and welcomed them to the negotiating table, as was the case with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un.
Trump pulled the United States out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or Iran deal this year – which offered Iran sanctions relief in exchange for halting nuclear expansion – but hinted on Monday that he would be open to negotiating a new agreement with Tehran “If we could work something out that’s meaningful, not the waste of paper like the other deal was.”
In the meantime, the US looks set to continue its pressure campaign of sanctions and threats against the Islamic Republic.
Last week, Trump threatened Rouhani with “CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE,” in a bizarre all-caps warning via Twitter.
Trump was responding to an earlier statement from Rouhani who urged Washington to refrain from provoking Iran unless it wants “the mother of all wars” to break out.

RUMORS OF WAR: Major Israeli strikes on Gaza amid talk of war…
The Israel Air Force launched a major wave of strikes at Hamas targets across the Gaza Strip on Friday evening as a cabinet minister said Israel was preparing a massive response to Hamas’s failure to heed repeated Israeli warnings to end the violence along the Gaza border. “At this time our aircraft are carrying out widespread attacks against terror targets belonging to Hamas in the Gaza Strip,” the IDF
said, adding that this came after the “serious shooting incident against our forces,” referring to sniper fire at IDF troops during a riot on the border earlier in the day. The army said 15 targets were hit, including the “Hamas brigade headquarters in Zeitoun.” The army said the headquarters were completely destroyed along with “weapons and ammunition stores, training grounds, observation posts, control centers and the offices of the brigade commander.” READ MORE https://www.timesofisrael.com/idf-strikes-deep-into-gaza-as-troops-come-under-fire-amid-talk-of-4th-gaza-war/

RUMORS OF WAR: Israeli Army told to prepare for large-scale military operation in Gaza
Israel’s political leadership has reportedly instructed the army to prepare for a military offensive in the Gaza Strip, to be initiated if the launching of incendiary devices from the Hamas-run coastal enclave into Israeli territory continues. According to a Channel 10 news report Tuesday, Israel has set Friday as a deadline for the flaming kite and balloon launches to cease.
If this does not happen, Israel may decide it has no choice but to embark on a military campaign in the Strip, the report said. Israel sent a similar message to Hamas through Egyptian intelligence, Channel 10 reported, with the Palestinian terror group, in turn, indicating its forces will work to stop the launching of burning materials by Friday.
