Libyan Army attacks Mitiga airport, Turkish soldiers killed
Again? It’s a wonder the rubble hasn’t just all crumbled to dust and blown away.
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Libyan National Army has hit the Mitiga Airport in Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
, Libya, killing Ottoman Turkish servicemen stationed there, the LNA spokesperson said on Sunday.

According to spokesperson Ahmad al-Mismari, for the past several days, the LNA has struck Ottoman Turkish military targets, including radars and air defences, located at the Mitiga air field. He noted that the LNA had also destroyed everything in the Misrata region that is viewed as having a "Ottoman Turkish presence", including military depots.

Al-Mismari underlined that the LNA is adhering to the truce, and carries out operations only as a response to provocations by the GNA.

He added that the LNA forces had entered several districts of Tripoli but they are not advancing in compliance with the ceasefire.

Last week, the LNA, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar
...Self-proclaimed Field Marshal, served in the Libyan army under Muammar Qadaffy, and took part in the coup that brought Qadaffy to power in 1969. He became a prisoner of war in Chad in 1987. While held prisoner, he and his fellow officers formed a group hoping to overthrow Qadaffy, so it's kind of hard to describe him as a Qadaffy holdover. He was released around 1990 in a deal with the United States government and spent nearly two decades in the United States, gaining US citizenship. In 1993, while living in the United States, he was convicted in absentia of crimes against the Jamahiriya and sentenced to death. Haftar held a senior position in the anti-Qadaffy forces in the 2011 Libyan Civil War. In 2014 he was commander of the Libyan Army when the General National Congress (GNC) refused to give up power in accordance with its term of office. Haftar launched a campaign against the GNC and its Islamic fundamentalist allies. His campaign allowed elections to take place to replace the GNC, but then developed into a civil war. Guess you can't win them all. Actually, he is, but slowly...
, hit Ottoman Turkish air defence systems at a military base at the airport, prompting the suspension of all flights and evacuation of passengers and personnel.

The airport has previously come under attack multiple times due to the ongoing fighting between the two rival forces in the country ‐ the Libyan National Army and the UN-backed Government of National Accord.

Saudi Arabia detains 298 officials in new corruption cases amid royal power struggle
[PRESSTV] Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
has detained 298 public officials in a new alleged anti-corruption push amid reports that the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
...Crown Prince and modernizer of Saudi Arabia as of 2016. The Turks hate him, so he must be all right, despite the occasional brutal murder of Qatar-owned journalists...
is seeking to get rid of potential rivals to the Saudi throne.

A Saudi anti-corruption body known as Nazaha announced on Sunday that it had arrested 298 government officials for crimes such as bribery, embezzlement and abuse of power involving a total of 379 million riyals ($101 million).

Among the detained officials, eight defense minister officers are suspected of money laundering in relation to government contracts during the years 2005-2015.

Two judges are also amongst the list for allegedly receiving bribes.

Another 29 interior ministry officials in the Eastern Province have also been detained, including three colonels, a major general and a brigadier general.

UN Chief voices serious concern over repeated attack in Iraq
...an organization originally established to war on dictatorships which was promptly infiltrated by dictatorships and is now held in thrall to dictatorships...
Secretary General António Guterres has expressed his "serious" concerns over the recent repeated attacks in Iraq, a spokesperson said.

The statement comes after a series of rocket attacks allegedly by Iran-backed militias on the military facilities of the US-led Coalition on Taji base.

The US, in response, heavily pounded the ammunition caches and other facilities belonging to pro-Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...

"The Secretary-General calls on all sides to take immediate steps towards de-escalating the situation to prevent additional loss of life, injury and destruction," reads a statement attributed to Stephane Dujarric.

Shin Bet says it nabbed Arab Israeli Hamas agent who posed as aid worker
[IsraelTimes] Aya Khatib allegedly diverted hundreds of thousands of shekels in funds earmarked for Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect.

needy to terror group to aid in tunnel building.

The Shin Bet security service announced on Saturday that it had arrested an Arab Israeli woman who allegedly used her position as a humanitarian worker on behalf of the needy in Gaza to funnel money, supplies and intelligence to the Hamas, a regional Iranian catspaw, terror group.

Aya Khatib, 31, from the northern town of Ar’ara, was recruited by a pair of fighters from Hamas’s military wing, the agency said in a statement, though it did not specify the date of her recruitment.

Khatib was arrested last month, but her identity and details of her case had been held until Sunday.

As part of her relationship with the two Hamas agents ‐ Muhammad Falafel and Muhammad Khalawa ‐ Khatib transferred hundreds of thousands of shekels to the terror group "while scamming aid organizations and innocent civilians who donated funds with the aim of reaching patients and the needy" in the Gaza Strip, according to the Shin Bet, which said part of the money went directly toward financing terror activity, such as attack tunnel construction.

In addition, Khatib transferred equipment for use by Hamas’s military wing, the Shin Bet said, without providing further detail.

"The investigation findings indicate that Khatib also provided intelligence to Hamas, including details on the movement of [IDF] troops during one of the fighting rounds with the Gaza Strip," the Shin Bet added.

Last week, dozens of Arab Israelis demonstrated outside the Haifa Magistrate’s Court in solidarity with Khatib, Ynet reported.

The protesters waved photos of the defendant with her two children and asserted her innocence. A similar demonstration in support of the woman two weeks earlier was attended by Joint List MK Yusef Jabareen.

Jihadist rebels refuse to withdraw from M-4 Highway, Idlib offensive looms
[ALMASDARNEWS] As of Sunday, March 15th, the jihadist rebels near the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway) have refused to withdraw from the area, despite an agreement between The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
and Russia last week.

According to a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) source in the Hama Governorate, the jihadist rebels have not left any of their military posts south of the M-4 Highway; thus, leaving it open for the Syrian Armed Forces to resume their offensive in this region.

Per the March 5th Moscow Agreement, all krazed killer groups were supposed to withdraw from the villages and towns south of the M-4 Highway.

some people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them...
despite the agreement, the jihadist rebels have refused to do so, which has resulted in the Russian military putting pressure on their Ottoman Turkish allies to step in.

The chances are now high that the Syrian Armed Forces will resume their Idlib offensive, which is something that the Ottoman Turkish regime has opposed and hoped to avoid.

Large US military convoy enters Syria from neighboring Iraq
[ALMASDARNEWS] A large U.S. military convoy has entered Syria from neighboring Iraq this week, the state-owned Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Sunday.

Citing local sources, SANA reported that a U.S. military convoy, consisting of 62 trucks loaded with military and logistical supplies and accompanied by 11 military vehicles, entered the al-Hasakah Governorate from the al-Walid crossing.

The U.S. convoy was said to have made its way to a military base in the al-Hasakah Governorate, as they they look to strengthen their presence in Syria.

This move by the U.S. Armed Forces comes just a few days after the so-called Islamic State

Angry jihadist puts bounty on Russian journalists after battlefield woes
[ALMASDARNEWS] A well-known jihadist propagandist posted a bounty on his Telegram channel this past weekend, calling for the killing of two Russian field journalists who have extensively covered the Syrian war from the front-lines.

Tahir al-’Umar of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
(HTS) posted on his Telegram channel that he would give any hard boy $25,000 (USD) to kill Russian journalists Evgeny Poddubnyy or Oleg Blokhin.

Al-’Umar offered $50,000 (USD) if either Russian journalist is killed by a sniper and $100,000 if they kidnap the journalists or a Russian soldier.

Turkish military pelted with stones in Idlib
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Ottoman Turkish military was not safe from the discontent of opposition activists and protesters in the Idlib Governorate on Sunday, as their vehicles and personnel were pelted with stones along the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia).

In a video that has circulated around social media, Ottoman Turkish military vehicles can be seen traveling down a road in Idlib Governorate when their convoy is pelted with several stones.

The Ottoman Turkish military, which has been assisting opposition factions for most of the Syrian conflict, has attempted to initiate a ceasefire in the Idlib Governorate so that the violence between the warring factions dissipates; however, their agreement with Russia was viewed negatively by jihadist groups like Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
