Turkey Transfers Foreign Terrorist Commanders from Idlib
TEHRAN (FNA)- The non-Syrian commanders of the terrorist groups have been relocated to Turkey from Idlib province by Ankara as other militants are preparing for a battle against the Syrian army.

The Arabic-language website of Sputnik news agency quoted local sources in Idlib as saying on Thursday that Ankara has transferred a number of the most notorious foreign commanders of the terrorists along with their family members from Jisr al-Shoqour in Idlib and Northern Lattakia to Turkey.

Meantime, a number of commanders and local members of Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) have also been able to flee to Turkey from the towns of Sarmada and Atmeh by paying a Turkish businessman $10,000 for a commander and $5,000 for low-ranking militants.

The sources said that the foreign terrorists are still stationed in the villages, towns and occupied positions, adding that the foreign terrorist groups, including Turkistanti party, Ajnad al-Qoqaz and Horas al-Din, have strengthened their military preparedness to fight against the Syrian army.

Also, sources close to the terrorists' commanders in Idlib have said that Tahrir al-Sham commander Mohammed al-Julani is due to declare his position on the Sochi agreement between Turkey and Russia on a demilitarized zone in Idlib soon.

Relevant reports said on Monday that Tahrir al-Sham was preparing for an imminent offensive against the Syrian Army in Idlib province to sabotage implementation of Sochi agreement, an Arab media outlet reported.

Syria's al-Watan daily quoted well-informed sources as reporting that Tahrir al-Sham has been preparing its gunmen in the last two days to kick off a heavy attack on the army in Idlib.

It further said that Tahrir al-Sham has kept fighters on alert along the entire roads to Idlib, specially along the road between Ban al-Hawa passageway at border with Syria and the town of Saraqib in Southeastern Idlib, adding that the terrorist group has also dispatched a large volume of military hardware to its positions in Southeastern Idlib, the town of Kobani in Jabal al-Turkmen in Northeastern Lattakia.

It went on to say that the terrorists of Horas al-Deen have opposed strongly the Sochi agreement and called on the other terrorist groups to join attacks on the army rapidly to push the Sochi agreement into failure.

The daily further said that a fresh wave of differences have erupted among terrorists over the Sochi agreement and demilitarized zone in Idlib.

Terrorists of the National Liberation Front on Sunday opposed an agreement endorsed by Russia and Turkey over the Northwestern province of Idlib following a similar opposition by Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at and several other terrorist groups.

Syrian Army denies Turkish report of jihadists leaving
Idlib buffer zone
BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – An officer from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) deployed near the Idlib front-lines has denied the Turkish reports of jihadists leaving the Idlib buffer zone.

According to the Syrian Arab Army officer, the jihadist rebels heavily shelled their positions from the Idlib front-lines, despite the fact that this new demilitarized zone was supposed to dissipate the violence.

The source added that the Syrian Army has seen no jihadist rebels withdraw from the front-lines around the Idlib Governorate.

On Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he received reports that the jihadist rebels had begun withdrawing from the demilitarization zone.

Erdogan said that the withdrawal of jihadist rebels from the demilitarization zone was a good sign that the Sochi agreement was off to a good start.

Russia’s latest hypersonic anti-ship cruise missile successfully hits target in Arctic


A hypersonic anti-aircraft missile with a range of over 300km will be part of the arsenal of the Su-57, Russia’s most-advanced multipurpose fighter jet. The weapon is meant to take out high-value targets with impunity.

The Su-57 is Russia’s first 5th-generation aircraft, designed to be a formidable threat to major air powers such as the US. It is normally expected to carry weapons in its internal bays, to reduce radar cross-section and avoid compromising its stealth capabilities. But larger missiles may be carried externally at a hardpoint, and one of those will be the R-37M, a missile with a greater range than anything the US aircraft would have at their disposal.

Japanese magazine to close after Abe ally's 'homophobic' article

The Guardian 2018/9/26
Controversy began in July with article in which MP Mio Sugita described LGBT people as ‘unproductive’
A prominent magazine in Japan is to close after an outcry over an allegedly homophobic article written by a rightwing MP from the ruling Liberal Democratic party.

The Shincho 45 said it would halt publication amid the continuing controversy over the views expressed by Mio Sugita. In the article the MP described LGBT people as “unproductive” and questioned the use of tax money to support them.

Sugita wrote that same-sex couples did not “produce children. In other words, they lack productivity and, therefore, do not contribute to the prosperity of the nation.”

The monthly magazine was plunged deeper into crisis after it ran a series of pieces in its latest edition under the headline: “Is Sugita’s article that outrageous”?

Its publisher, Shinchosha, apologised for the articles. “We can’t deny that we failed to scrutinise the feature package and check the articles fully because we are under-resourced for the editing process due to decreased magazine sales. We are so sorry for allowing this to happen,” it said a statement reported by the Asahi Shimbun.

The magazine’s demise follows an unusual intervention from the publisher’s president, Takanobu Sato, who said the latest edition contained expressions that were “full of prejudice and lacked understanding”.

Sugita’s article, which appeared in July, led to condemnation from politicians and LGBT rights campaigners, who demanded that she apologise. Her party initially refused to reprimand Sugita, but later said she had been reminded that her views contradicted its support for the rights of “sexual minorities”.

Sugita, an ally of the prime minister, Shinzo Abe, has not publicly apologised for the article. Abe said last week he had not pressured her to resign because “she is still young”. Sugita is 51.

Shincho 45, which first appeared in 1982, describes itself as a “bit dangerous” and has reportedly attempted to attract new readers by providing a forum for rightwing views and criticism of what it deems to be political correctness.

As campaigners for LGBT rights demanded that Sugita apologise, the magazine sought to defend the MP, who has claimed that the use of sex slaves by Japanese soldiers before and during the second world war was a Korean fabrication.

One of the articles in its latest edition, by the literary critic Eitaro Ogawa, said guaranteeing rights for sexual minorities led him to wonder whether society should also recognise the rights of men who grope women on trains.

Shinchosha’s director of public relations, Yukihito Ito, said the magazine’s editorial team “apparently failed to conduct strict checks on its articles, going overboard in a bid to increase circulation”, according to the Mainichi Shimbun.

S-300s in, Patriots out: US to withdraw missiles from 3 Middle East countries – report

S-300s in, Patriots out: US to withdraw missiles from 3 Middle East countries – report
The Pentagon will remove four batteries of PAC-3 Patriot missiles from three Middle-Eastern countries, according to the Wall Street Journal. The report said the missiles are needed elsewhere to counter China and Russia.

The US newspaper said Jordan and Bahrain will lose one battery of US long-range anti-aircraft missiles next month, while Kuwait will part with two. The systems are not meant to be replaced, so the withdrawal would permanently reduce the defensive capabilities of the three nations. The systems are already offline and are being prepared to be moved, a military source told the WSJ.

The report would not disclose where the Patriot missiles would be redeployed, but said it was part of the Pentagon’s strategy of changing focus from the Middle East towards China and Russia, which were named as the main threats to US global interests in the Trump administration’s defense strategy review.

The MIM-104 Patriot is the US counterpart to the Russian S-300 and S-400 systems. Currently in its PAC-3 version, the long-range air-defense system is used to defend strategic locations from enemy aircraft and missiles. Ironically, the US move was announced just as Russia decided to supply the S-300 system to the Syrian government, after the downing of a Russian Il-20 plane by outdated Syrian air-defense forces during an Israeli air raid.

Responding to the report, the Kuwaiti military downplayed the Pentagon’s decision, saying their own long-range air-defense systems – the same Patriot missiles bought from the US – would be enough to protect the nation.

Washington regularly uses the deployment of advanced weapon systems to allied nations as a bargaining chip, where those countries wish to boost their defenses. For instance, in early 2013, the US, Germany and the Netherlands deployed their Patriot batteries to Turkey, as Ankara complained about a threat posed by the war in neighboring Syria.

Turkey didn’t have a developed national air-defense system at the time and was selecting which long-range SAMs to buy, with American, European and Chinese producers competing for the contract.

As Turkey’s relations with its American and European allies soured over the years, the initial arms providers pulled out their assets, with Spain and Italy stepping in. The falling-out was also reflected in Turkey’s decision to purchase the Russian S-400 system rather than one produced by a NATO member, despite objections from Washington.

Rouhani Reveals US Made 8 Requests for Bilateral Meeting

Rouhani Reveals US Made 8 Requests for Bilateral Meeting
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told an American news outlet that, contrary to Trump's claims, the US has sent eight requests for meeting him since last year.

The Iranian chief executive made the remarks on Tuesday in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, reassuring that Iran sees it useless to hold talks with Trump's administration.

In a bid to show a pose of nonchalance, the US president posted a tweet on Tuesday morning, saying that "Despite requests, I have no plans to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Maybe someday in the future. I am sure he is an absolutely lovely man!"

While Trump has been wearing a tough face against Iran nuclear agreement and even he pulled the US out of the agreement in a unilateral move in early May, he has been sporadically trying to schedule a bilateral meeting with his Iranian counterpart.

To his dismay, Iran has been rejecting flat his numerous requests, saying that any new rounds of Iran-US talks are hinged upon the US government's behavior in regard with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as Iran nuclear accord.

Since the conclusion of the Iran deal on July 14, 2015, Iran has implemented the articles of the agreement and observed the undertakings it had made in the accord, according to more than a dozen reports issued by UN atomic energy watchdog (IAEA) but, in violation of the agreement, the US has refused to allow Iran to benefit from the economic reliefs promised in the deal.

In a relevant development earlier on Tuesday, an Iranian envoy at the UN also rejected media speculations that Rouhani has requested a meeting with Trump in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

“Iran has not requested a meeting,” Alireza Miryousefi, a spokesman for Iran’s UN mission, told Reuters on Tuesday.

Trump's claim may seem to look more unbelievable to politically savvy people as President Rouhani voiced surprise, earlier in this month, at the US repeated calls for negotiations with Tehran amid severe hostilities.

"On one hand, they pressure the Iranian nation, and on the other hand, they send us messages through different channels every day calling for negotiations," President Rouhani said, addressing a festival in Tehran.

Addressing the White House officials, he said, "Should we believe your softness in messages or your brutal acts? If you are sincere and like the Iranian nation, why do you want to exert pressure on people's lives?"

President Rouhani underscored that Washington and its allies are making a mistake if they think that they can force the Iranian nation to bow to pressures and surrender to the US after several months.

In relevant comments in August, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that Iran would not sit to the negotiating table with Washington, and declared a strong ban on talks with the US.

"Recently, the US officials have been talking blatantly about us. Beside sanctions, they talk about war and negotiations. They talk about a spirit of war to frighten the cowards," Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large number of Iranian people from all walks of life in Tehran.

"In the matter of negotiations, they play a poor game. One of them says, negotiations with preconditions, another one says, negotiations without preconditions. Let me address the people on the matter in a few words: There will be no war, nor will we negotiate with the US. This is the gist of the word that all the Iranian people should know. The US has now suggested negotiations; this is not new. This has existed since the beginning of the revolution," he underlined.

Ayatollah Khamenei explained to the audience why Iran has decided not to negotiate with the United States, and asserted, "Why won’t we negotiate? The US negotiations formula is this; because the Americans rely on money and power, they consider negotiations as a commercial exchange; when the US wants to negotiate with a party, they determine their main goals, and then they won’t retreat even a step away from these goals; they demand the other party to pay a privilege immediately; and if the other party refuses to comply with them, they start to make a fuss, so the other party would surrender; the US itself does not pay anything in exchange for what it takes from the other party; the US only makes strong promises in order to enchant the other party with mere promises; in the final stage, after receiving all the immediate advantages, the US breach their own promises."

"This is the method of the American negotiations. Now should we negotiate with such a fraudulent government? The JCPOA was a clear example of this," Ayatollah Khamenei said, and added, "Even if we ever - impossible as it is - negotiated with the US, it would never ever be with the current US administration."

Ayatollah Khamenei banned any negotiations with the US, saying, "The Islamic Republic can negotiate with the US only when it reaches the power and sovereignty that would nullify US’s pressures and domineering efforts; when those efforts have no effect on Iran. Today this is not the case. Thus, I will ban negotiations with the US just as Imam (Khomeini) did."

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution slammed US rhetoric towards Iran, and stated, "The US has become more blatant and ruder in their rhetoric over the past few months. Previously they were not so observant of diplomatic etiquette in their speech either; however, they have become ruder towards all nations."

Ayatollah Khamenei drew an example of US’s blatancy in actions and rhetoric, and said, "The example of it is that during the last week, the Saudis committed two crimes: attacking a hospital and attacking a school bus with 40 or 50 innocent children on board. Do you have 8 or 9 year-olds at home? This is a dramatic tragedy. It truly breaks one’s heart. The news shook the global conscience. But how did the US react? Instead of condemning the crime, the US said, “We have strategic relations with Saudi Arabia.” Is this not shamelessness? What the US president did to two or three thousand children by separating them from their parents, putting them in cages because they were immigrants is an unprecedented crime in history."
