At this point there is so much that is unclear, and much of this has to do with Russian EW efforts in the theater of operations (which encompasses most of the territory of Ukraine). There is also quite a bit of distraction/disinformation being utilized by both the Kiev regime and the Russian Armed Forces for varying reasons. Coupled with other elements of its attack, Russia will use the fog of war to its advantage, while Ukraine will attempt to paint as positive a picture as possible to mislead the public and its potential allies. I’ll start by stating that despite the varying media commentary to the contrary, the official recognition of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples Republic and the Luhansk

Another Former Rebel Commander Assassinated In Syria’s Daraa

Illustrative image On February 25 morning, another former rebel commander was assassinated in the southern Syrian governorate of Daraa. The commander, Khaled Sultan al-Mahamid, was shot and killed by two unidentified gunmen in the town of al-Yadudah in the western Daraa countryside. The perpetrators managed to flee the town. Al-Mahamid was a field commander of a former Free Syrian Army group that was known as the Revolution Army. After joining the 2018 Daraa reconciliation process, al-Mahamid returned to civilian life and didn’t join any pro-government formation. The hit on al-Mahamid was a part of an assassination campaign targeting former rebel and radicals in Daraa. The previous target was Kamal Hamid al-Jaouni, a former commander of ISIS’s Khalid ibn al-Walid Army. On February 23, al-Jaouni was shot and killed by unidentified gunmen while he was traveling on Aabdyn-Baiyt Irah road in the western countryside of Daraa. Many Syrian opposition activists claim that the Syrian intelligence is behind the assassination campaign. However, there is no evince to back these accusations.

On February 22, the US Africa Command (AFRICOM) conducted an airstrike on terrorists of al-Qaeda-affiliated Harakat al-Shabaab al-Mujahideen in Somalia. The airstrike, which was carried by General Atomics MQ-9 Reaper combat drone, followed an attack by al-Shabab terrorists on allied Somali forces in Duduble, about 40 miles northwest of the capital, Mogadishu. In a statement released a day after the airstrikes, the AFRICOM said that a battle-damage assessment is still pending. However, the command noted that no civilians were believed to have been harmed. “The Federal Government of Somalia and the US remain committed to fighting al-Shabaab to prevent the deaths of innocent civilians. Violent extremist organizations like al-Shabaab present long-term threats to the US and regional interests,” the statement reads. The airstrike was the first such military action by the US against al-Qaeda affiliates in East Africa since August of last year. Back then, the target was also terrorists of al-Shabab in Somalia.

US To Left Sanctions Off Syria’s Northeastern, Northwestern Regions – Report

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE. The US will exclude Syria’s northeastern and northwestern regions from sanctions imposed on the country, the North Press Agency (NPA) reported on February 25. US sources told the agency that sanctions imposed under the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act of 2019 will continue to target government-held parts of the country. “Caesar’s sanctions will continue to target areas under Assad’s control, as the law prohibits foreign entities from dealing with Assad or participating in construction and reconstruction activities in this part of Syrian territory,” one of the sources told NPA. Syria’s northeastern region is split between the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces and Turkish-backed rebel forces. The northwestern region, however, is controlled by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, which is designated as a terrorist group by the US. According to the NPA, Syria’s northeastern and northwestern regions will be able to trade and deal with foreign entities. However, sanctions will be kept on the country’s oil sector, including the production fields and facilities held by US allies in the northeastern region. “Sanctions will be lifted on all financial transactions in areas outside Assad’s authority, enabling foreign entities to operate in the region, while Syrian oil, including the oil of

If on the first day of the operation, Russian forces avoided attacks on civilian infrastructure by entering cities without firing a single shot, almost not engaging in battles with Ukrainian military, the second day of the operation will likely be more bloody. The UAF are resisting in the residential areas in the cities and in their suburbs.

The CIA is Pushing a False Flag Operation in Ukraine to Save Joe Biden and the Democrats

Illustrative Image Written by John Smith In a prior article, I described the pragmatism of Vladimir Putin in regards to his not wanting a war in Ukraine, but seeing the recent events unfold in the breakaway republics in Ukraine; it’s fully obvious the CIA is back to its old tricks again of “waging the dog”, which means trying to create a situation that appears to be a valid military intervention but is a ruse. To understand this, one must understand the dynamics of what is occurring in the US. The Democrat Party controls the three branches of the US government: House, Senate, and Presidency. However, they are barely holding them and because of an increasingly unpopular Joe Biden as President, the public opinion polls are putting the Democrat Party into potential losing ground in the House and Senate in the 2022 midterm elections, with Republicans possibly able to take the majority and prepare for a contentious Presidential campaign and possible victory in 2024. Basically, Biden is weak and unpopular and bringing down his party with him; Republicans smell blood in the water and are circling for the political kill. This above narrative is what is pushing the current activities in
