HOUTHIS LAUNCHED BALLISTIC MISSILE ON UAE CAPITAL – RUMORS

On Wednesday, Houthis launched a ballistic missile on the UAE capital of Abu Dhabi, Yemeni sources claimed. The Houthis media wing and the UAE government have not denied or confirm these claims so far. A local source from Abu Dhabi denied that any missile hit the city or any area near it.It’s unlikely that these reports are true as the most advance ballistic missile the Houthis got is only 400km in range while Abu Dhabi is more than 600km away from Yemen. If Houthis indeed were able to target the UAE with a ballistic missile that got a range of over 600km it would be a big technological breakthrough for the Houthis missile force. However, even in this case this would mean that the missile had technical problems or was intercepted by the UAE Air Defense Force as it didn’t hit its target for sure. On Tuesday, Houthi fighters repelled a large attack of Saudi-led forces in al-Aulib mountains in Najran near the Saudi-Yemeni border. The Houthis killed several pro-Hadi fighters and destroyed…

PHILIPPINE ARMY STARTS ITS FINAL PUSH TO LIBERATE MARAWI CITY

FILE IMAGE On August 30, Brigadier General Rolando Joselito Bautista, commander of the 1st Infantry Division of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), announced that the AFP stepped up its bombing on the remaining ISIS-held area in Marawi city to open the way for the final push against terrorists. “One of the lessons we learned is that we really have to support the advance of troops by pouring all the firepower in,” Gen. Bautista said. Moreover, the AFP successfully captured the Mapandi bridge after weeks of clashes with ISIS fighters. The bridge was the last suppling route for ISIS in Marawi city. ISIS now controls only a 500-square-meter pocket inside Marawi city surrounded by the AFP from all sides. So far 617 ISIS fighters have been killed in the Marawi battle, while the AFP has lost 133 soldiers. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte announced that the battle to liberate Marawi entered its final phase. “We are in the final stages. So let us send immediately, even air-lift, th…

By this we are moving these defeated militiamen – ISIS fighters – from a front we fight on, to another front that we fight on,” Nasrallah said. Nasra…

Beirut, Aug 29, IRNA – Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah said that the Daesh (ISIS) terrorists had no choice but to accept Hezbollah proposed conditions and left the region. He made the remarks while addressing a ceremony marking liberation of Lebanese and Syrian border areas from Takfiri terrorist groups. His address was aired live on Al-Menar TV.

Syria and Lebanon Defeating The ISIS Terrorists

By Andre Vltchek
Whatever the West may think, and no matter what the Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri may say publicly, the Lebanese army, in clear coordination with Hezbollah (which is outlawed in many Western countries) as well as with the Syrian army, is now pounding the positions of deadly ISIS/Daesh, right at the border region. The army began the operation on August 19, 2017, at 5 in the morning, by firing at the terrorists’ positions in Jaroud, Raas Ba’albak and al-Qaa’ using rockets and heavy artillery. It all has an emotional twist: the army commanders declared that the operation was launched in honor of the country’s kidnapped military men and martyrs. Apparently, Lebanon has finally decided: that, enough is enough! First Al-Nusra Front and now ISIS have to go. Ignore the fact the Lebanese government went out of its way to say that the Lebanese army is actually not coordinating with Syrian forces, or with Hezbollah. After all, Mr. Hariri just recently returned from Washington,…

SOCIAL MEDIA IS A TOOL OF THE CIA: “FACEBOOK, GOOGLE AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA USED TO SPY ON PEOPLE”

Written by Prof Michel Chossudovsky; Originally appeared at Global Research A CBS news article published in 2011 entitled “Social Media Is a Tool of the CIA. Seriously”  reveals the “unspoken truth” which the mainstream media including CBS have failed to address. The CIA is  “using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people.” This article published by CBS refutes the lies of the MSM (and CBS). It confirms the insidious relationship between the CIA, the Search Engines,  Social Media and major advertising conglomerates: “You don’t need to wear a tinfoil hat to believe that the CIA is using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people. That’s because the CIA publishes a helpful list of press releases [link inactive] on all the social media ventures it sponsors, via its technology investment arm In-Q-Tel. … “ The report acknowledges that “privacy” is threatened by the advertisers, yet at the same time these advertisers are “in bed …
