カタールを巡る湾岸諸国の対立はトランプの武器購入要求が主因

中東は謎が多いに2017/6/15次のように書きましたが、どうも当たりのようです。

D カタールが米国から戦闘機を120億ドルで購入、カタール問題は終わり?
US sells $12bn worth of fighter jets to ‘terrorist funder’ Qatar

Elsewhere in his remarks, Jubeir said, “Enough is enough, and our Qatari brothers cannot continue to fund extremism and terrorize and incite and use hostile media and interfere with the affairs of other countries and still remain in good standing.”

He also noted that Riyadh, Manama, Cairo and Abu Dhabi were drawing up “a list of grievances that need to be addressed and that the Qataris need to fix,” stressing that the list did not include “demands.”

“We are working on those with our Bahraini, Emirati and Egyptian partners in order to compile this list and present it to the Qataris, and I think it will be done fairly soon,” he said.

The top Saudi diplomat further emphasized that he expected a positive response from Doha that would make the region a “better place.”

The softened tone came after Qatar announced the signing of a $12-billion deal to buy F-15 fighter jets from the United States.

The Pentagon said the sale would give Qatar “a state of the art capability and increase security cooperation and interoperability” between Doha and Washington.

Earlier this week, the Qatari and US naval forces also concluded a three-day joint military exercise in the Persian Gulf.

Arab Analyst: S. Arabia May Give Up Demands from Doha after US Affection for Qatar
TEHRAN (FNA)- Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief of Rai al-Youm newspaper, referred to Qatar's contract to purchase $20bln of military equipment from the US, and wrote that Saudi Arabia may give up its demands from Doha after the development.

"Given the fact that the US has changed its position against Qatar, there is a possibility that Saudi Arabia and its allies withdraw from some of their demands," Atwan wrote on Sunday.

He also pointed to the UAE envoy to Saudi Arabia's remarks that Washington will be informed of demands of Riyadh and its allies from Qatar, and said this shows that the US wants to play a mediatory role and take Kuwait's position.

Saudi Arabia has set ten conditions to agree on a reconciliation with Qatar, including cutting off diplomatic ties with Iran and expelling all members of Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood, media outlets reported.

The conditions were reportedly revealed during a meeting between Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz and Sheikh Sheikh Sabah Ahmad al-Sabah of Kuwait.

The ten conditions stipulate the following:

1- Cutting off diplomatic ties with Iran immediately

2- Stopping the broadcast of Al Jazeera channel

3- Halting any interference in the internal affairs of Egypt or the (Persian) Gulf states

4- Offering an official apology to the (Persian) Gulf states for the offenses committed by Al-Jazeera channel

5- Expelling all the members of Hamas group

6- Freezing the bank accounts of Hamas leaders

7- A commitment from Doha to refrain from practicing any political role that contradicts with the unified policies of the (Persian) Gulf States

8- A commitment from Doha to the charter signed in 2014 (which included stopping the interference in the affairs of other countries and deporting legally wanted residents in Qatar)

9- Expelling Muslim Brotherhood members and all anti-(Persian) Gulf elements

10- Stopping the support of terrorist organizations

There has not been any official statement from Saudi Arabia or Kuwait concerning the above conditions.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties and all land sea and air contacts with Qatar earlier this month, accusing the Persian Gulf country of supporting terrorism and interfering in their internal affairs.

Qatar also in a statement expressed regret over the attempt by four Arab countries to cut relations with Doha, and said, "Their measure is unjustifiable and based on groundless allegations."

10の条件の中で重いものは、1-イランとの断交、5、6-ハマスメンバーの追放・銀行口座凍結、です。7-湾岸諸国統一政策に反することをしない、は米国の武器購入のような話が念頭にあるのでしょう。10-テロリスト支援を止めるは冗談に聞こえますがこれが表向きの理由にされて来ました。

まるでイスラエルの立場に従うことをカタールに迫っている。湾岸諸国がイスラエルにひれ伏していることを見せ付けるものになっています。

雨の降り始めはこんなふうに線量率が上がります

2017/6/18は怪しげな雲模様。肥満解消のため出かけました。

天気が良ければ現地調査の行程をもっと先まで伸ばすつもりでしたが、ポツポツ当たりそうな感じに調査を切り上げ、駅に向いました。

傘は用意してありましたので大きく濡れることは避けられました。

駅のホームで。線路の砕石はほとんど濡れて色が黒くなっています。


62cpm、その辺の地面を測るとき、少し低めかと感じる水準です。MAZURは、アルファ線もベータ線も検出します。

雨が降り出したときは、こんなふうに線量率が大きく上がっているのです。自宅内ではおおむね25cpmです。

シリア内ISISの作戦行動が単純化か? ロシア軍が180人掃討 シリア軍の攻勢とバクダーディ死亡情報で動揺

ロシア軍が2017/5/28のラッカでのISISの拠点爆撃に続き、ISISの兵士の集団をドローンで見つけ先制攻撃を加えています。イラク、シリア国境地帯のドローンでの偵察強化はすでに行われていましたが、次の事例ではラッカからユーフラテス川を隔てたデリゾールで180名を先制攻撃で殺害しています。
ドローンでテロリストの集合を発見しやすくなっているようです。ISISの作戦行動が単純化し、空から見分けやすくなっている可能性があります。

Russian airstrikes kill 2 ISIS commanders, thwart major attack on Deir ez-Zor – military
Russian military intelligence has exposed an Islamic State plan to mount a major attack on the city of Deir ez-Zor in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said. It added that preemptive strikes to prevent the attack resulted in some 180 terrorists killed, including two commanders.

The concentration of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) forces near the besieged Syrian city was noticed by Russian surveillance drones in early June, the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The military command decided to conduct preemptive airstrikes to prevent their ensuing attack.

Two airstrikes delivered on June 6 and 8 by the Russian Air Force in Syria killed two prominent IS field commanders, Belgian Abu Umar al-Beljiki and Egyptian Abu Yasin al-Masri, the statement said.

In addition, 180 jihadist fighters were killed and 18 vehicles of their vehicles were destroyed. IS also lost an artillery piece and an ammunition stockpile, according to the statement.

TEHRAN (FNA)- ISIL members live in fear and anxiety after they heard news about the Syrian army's intensified operations in Deir Ezzur, Hama, Homs and Raqqa as well as reports that the terrorist group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been killed in an airstrike in Raqqa.

Local sources in Deir Ezzur reported that a number of ISIL commanders have fled their bases in the province after hearing reports about the Syrian army's advances and the death of their ringleader.

Meantime, an analyst said that the ISIL project to transfer its capital from Raqqa to Deir Ezzur has failed given the terrorist group's heavy defeats in Raqqa, Hama, Homs and Deir Ezzur.

He added that the report on the death of al-Baghdadi - correct or incorrect - is a very heavy blow to the terrorist group and will leave negative impacts on ISIL militants.

Noting that after killing of a leader, the command structure of a formation will collapse too, the analyst predicted that the trend of ISIL's annihilation will be accelerated given the pressure that the terrorist group is bearing in Syria and Iraq.

Meantime, reports said that a number of ISIL commanders who sought to defect the terrorist group were arrested and executed by the ISIL security forces, while the operations to assassinate senior ISIL commanders have also increased.
