#NATO Turks continued to slice #Syria .
Terrorist Turkish Military Patrol Entered #Syria ’s #Manbij Area Under Deal With #US . (Photos, Video) dlvr.it/QXh3LJ
On June 18, photos and a video appeared online showing a Turkish military patrol entering the area of Manbij, which is held by the so-called #Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). HINT: The SDF is a brand created by the US-led coalition to hide military aid provided to the YPG and its affilates, which are described by Turkey as terrorist groups.
The photos showed in the post are made at the al-#Daadat check point, en route leading to Manbij. The town is currently controlled by the Manbij Military Council (MMC), a group originally established by the SDF. In early June, the YPG already announced that it had withdrawn its “military advisers” from Manbij. However, this is not enough to stop Turkey.
Ankara has repeatedly stated that Kurdish armed groups have to be disarmed and PKK-linked individuals have to be presecuted in northern Syria.
HINT: The PKK – the Kurdistan Workers’ Party – is a Kurdish separatist armed group invovled in a long-standing rebellion against the Turkish government. The YPG and the PKK are directly linked through their ideology, structure as well as members and commanders. The key difference is that the YPG has so far operated only in northern Syria.
This video is filmed north of Manbij:
Earlier this year, Turkey and the US officially announced that they had endorsed a roadmap for Manbij. Ankara describes it as a plan to force YPG and PKK-linked individuals and units to withdraw from the Manbij area and to establish a local governance not linked to the YPG/YPD there.
Turkish officials also stated that this is plan only a part of the wider efforts to disarm Kurdish militias in northern Syria. Earlier, the Turkish military defeated the YPG in a large-scale operation in the northwestern Syrian area of #Afrin .
Shall we call the #moderate forces of #ISIS#AMERICAN EYES IN THE SKY?
'#Tiger Forces' and commanders #Suheil Al-#Hassan and Saleh Al-#Abdallah arrived at #Quneitra yesterday- #Daraa area. .
🔴 BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:50 A.M.) – The commander of the Tiger Forces, Major General Suheil Al-Hassan, was filmed this past weekend entering the Dara’a Governorate with a large number of #Russian bodyguards.
The veteran commander was escorted by a large arsenal of Russian ground and air bodyguards.
As shown in the video (previous post), Russian military choppers could be seen following the Tiger Forces commander in order to ensure his safety.
Since his military promotion from Colonel, Major General Hassan’s safety has become a high priority for the Russian forces in Syria.

Depicted Here In Today's Picture Is A Dutch Soldier Sometime During The 1960s (Cold War).The Soldier Appears To Be Posing For a Picture Due To a White Background Being Present Behind Him. Some Interesting Things To Note Here Is That Most Of His Gear Is Of American Origin. Some Of Which Being The M1 Steel Pot And a American Style Canteen Both Of Which Were Locally Produced In The Netherlands. The Firearm That He Is Holding Is A Israeli Manufactured UZI Which Was A Weapon Used By Most European NATO Members Including Germany. The Soldiers Is Also Wearing Some Type Of Camouflage Netting On His Helmet And His Back As Well As Face Paint Which Gives The Soldier a Awesome Look In My Opinion. Definitely A Very Interesting Picture Considering That Pictures Of Dutch Soldiers During The Cold War Are Not Easy To Come By. --------------------------------------------KGB (Kampfgruppe Bausch)

Today the NATO Force Integration Unit (NFIU) in Estonia celebrated the 3rd Anniversary of its inauguration which took place in June 2015. In spite of the Unit’s short history much has been achieved as this Multinational NATO entity adjusted and adapted to the every changing security landscape in Estonia and the Baltic Region.
Germany, Indonesia, South Africa, Dominican Republic, Belgium, elected to Security Council
Germany, Indonesia, South Africa, the Dominican Republic and Belgium, will take up their seats from 1 January 2019.
They will fill the seats being vacated by Bolivia, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Netherlands and Sweden at the end of this year, having each served two-year terms on the 15-member Security Council.
Under the UN Charter, the Security Council has the primary responsibility for international peace and security, with all UN Member States required to comply with Council decisions.
The Council’s ten non-permanent seats, are allocated according to a rotation pattern set by the Assembly in 1963, to ensure fair regional representation on the Council: five from African and Asian and Pacific States; one from Eastern Europe; two from Latin American States; and two from Western European and Other States (WEOG). Belgium and Germany; the Dominican Republic, and South Africa, ran unopposed from their respective regional groups, while Indonesia secured its place following a run-off with the Maldives for the Asia-Pacific Group seat. . .
UN seeks $80 million to support refugees in Ethiopia
Two United Nations humanitarian agencies are jointly seeking $80 million to provide food assistance to refugees in Ethiopia, which hosts the second largest number of those in Africa.
In a news release issued Wednesday, the World Food Programme (WFP) and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said that food ration was cut by 20 per cent last year to below the 2,100 kilocalories per day required to sustain an average person.
The agencies are warning of deeper cuts from April unless new funding is received in March. “After fleeing conflict and deprivation in their home countries, refugees deserve to be protected and supported,” said Samir Wanmali, WFP’s Acting Country Director in Ethiopia.
Ethiopia hosts more than 900,000 refugees, including those from Eritrea, Kenya, Sudan, South Sudan and Somalia.
Without new contributions, 650,000 refugees living in camps could soon become even more hungry and may eventually face severe hunger that could put lives at risk.
Particularly at risk are young children who risk becoming stunted if they do not receive the right nutrients during the first 1,000 days of life. “The malnutrition rates in the camps are already high – further ration cuts could have a devastating effect,” said UNHCR Deputy Representative Matthew Crentsil.
Recent assessments show that malnutrition rates among children under the age of five are above the emergency threshold of 15 per cent in nearly half of the 26 refugee camps.
Conflict and drought in neighbouring countries continues to force people to seek refuge in Ethiopia, which has a long tradition of hosting refugees. In 2017, nearly 110,000 refugees arrived in Ethiopia. . .
