Iranian oil tanker held by UK to be released Thursday - reports
The tanker with Iranian oil that has been held by British naval forces in Gibraltar for over a month will be released on Thursday, sources close to Gibraltar’s chief minister Fabian Picardo told a British tabloid.

Picardo won’t apply to renew the detention order for the tanker Grace 1 in a court hearing on Thursday, sources told the Sun, as he has been convinced the vessel is not heading toward Syria after receiving a written note from the tanker’s captain.

The Panamanian-flagged tanker allegedly loaded with Iranian oil was seized by the Royal Marines in early July, after both the UK and Gibraltar accused it of violating EU sanctions against Syria.

Iran denied the charge and accused the British of acting on US orders, slamming the seizure as “maritime piracy.”

The Iranian navy has since seized the British tanker Stena Impero as it was traveling through the Strait of Hormuz, accusing the ship of violating maritime law.

London has signed on to a US-led “freedom of navigation” coalition that Washington claims is defensive even as it packs the Gulf with military assets including a carrier strike group, bomber task force, missile batteries, and thousands of troops. While the initiative is largely in the planning stages, having been panned by Washington’s European allies, Israel has also volunteered unspecified services after reaching an “agreement” with the UAE to counter Iranian “aggression.”

Iranian FM Javad Zarif has accused Washington and its allies of turning the region into a “matchbox ready to ignite” by “flooding it with weapons,” while Tehran has warned that Israel’s involvement could “spark a war.”

US tries to stop Gibraltar’s planned release of seized Iranian supertanker
The US made a last-minute effort to seize the Iranian oil tanker arrested in Gibraltar, a diplomatic torpedo fired at efforts by the UK to defuse mounting tensions with Tehran by letting the vessel set sail.

The US Justice Department made itself part of the high-profile case on Thursday, when it requested that a Gibraltar court seize the supertanker Grace 1, a government spokesman confirmed to local media. The tiny British overseas territory in southern Spain was set to release the vessel this morning, but the US move effectively postponed the release until Thursday evening.

The Panamanian-flagged tanker was seized by the UK Royal Marines in early July, on suspicion of carrying oil to war-torn Syria in breach of EU sanctions. Iran denied the allegations, slammed the seizure as “maritime piracy” and responded by capturing British tanker Stena Impero off its own coastline.

As animosity mounted between the UK and Tehran, the Gibraltar government decided not to renew the detention order as it became convinced that Grace 1 wasn’t heading toward Syria, having received a written assurance from her captain.

Consequently, the captain of the Grace 1 and three of his officers were released from arrest in Gibraltar.

Now, the American intervention risks thwarting the reconciliation effort. Later in the day, Chief Justice Anthony Dudley made it clear that “the ship would have sailed” from Gibraltar were it not for the US request.

While the Justice Department itself has yet to comment, London has already distanced itself from the issue. The Foreign Office said the “investigations conducted around the Grace 1 are a matter for the government of Gibraltar.”

Sources: US Launches Coup against Kurds in Collaboration with Turkey

Sources: US Launches Coup against Kurds in Collaboration with Turkey
TEHRAN (FNA)- Kurdish sources in Syria say that the US has initiated a rigid move in collaboration with Turkey to undermine the Kurdish militants and force them to leave parts of Northern Syria.

The sources were quoted by the Arabic-language website of Sputnik as saying on Wednesday that the Kurds have sent three separate delegations to Damascus, Moscow and Cairo to find a way out of the quagmire created by Washington for them.

They added that the US has worked out a scheme to aggravate enmities between Turkey and the Kurds and launched a coup against them, moving in line with Turkey in common plans in Eastern Euphrates region.

The sources said that the US used the Syrian tribes that are supported by certain Persian Gulf Arab states as a replacement for the Kurds as they could better advance Washington's goals without threatening Turkey's interests.

They also revealed that the US is attempting to revive the ISIL in Eastern Euphrates to be used against the Syrian army.

In relevant remarks on Saturday, a prominent Lebanese political expert said that the US had turned its back on the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) after an agreement with Ankara to create a safe zone in Northern Syria, adding that Washington was using the Kurds as a tool to attain its goals.

Hassan Hardan told the Arabic-language al-Alam news channel that the US had struck an agreement with Turkey against the SDF after using them as an instrument in Syria.

He added that the SDF implemented the US policies in a move to establish an autonomous region in Northern Syria but now the possibility for the formation of such a canton has faded away, noting that now the Kurdish forces should decide if they want to continue their ties with the US despite its disloyalties.

Hardan said that the agreement between the US and Turkey was predictable since the very first day because the US never backtracks from supporting its strategic ally, adding that relations between Washington and the SDF were just directed towards meeting the US demands in the Syria crisis.

Turkish and US officials clinched a deal last Wednesday to establish a “joint operations center” aimed at creating a safe zone in Northern Syria to grapple with tensions between Ankara and a Washington-backed Kurdish militia.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, for his part, welcomed the agreement, saying that “it was important that a step be taken east of the Euphrates (River) and this is being taken together with the Americans”.

“With the creation of the operations center, the process will begin”, he pointed out, in an apparent reference to the creation of a safe zone in Northern Syria.

But Damascus lashed out at the US-Turkish deal.

“Syria categorically and blatantly rejects the agreement […] on the establishment of a so-called safe zone”, the state-run SANA news agency cited an unnamed Syrian foreign ministry source as saying last Thursday.

The source also argued that “Syria's Kurds who have accepted to become a tool in this aggressive US-Turkish project bear a historical responsibility in this regard”.

The Syrian foreign ministry also slammed the deal as “a gross violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria”, which violates the principles of international law and the UN charter.

According to Damascus, the deal represents "a dangerous escalation and a threat to peace and stability" in the area.

Report: Trump Asked Japan to Buy 'Huge Amount' of US Farm Goods
TEHRAN (FNA)- President Donald Trump has reportedly asked Japan to buy a "huge amount" of US farm products, according to a report.

He requested that Japan buy specific goods including soybeans and wheat, Kyodo news agency reported on Tuesday, citing sources in the Japanese and US governments.

Japan's government was reportedly considering is response and the buy would reportedly be worth hundreds of millions of dollars including the cost of transportation.

The requested purchase would be separate from current trade negotiations between the two countries. The US and Japan are hoping to reach a bilateral trade agreement by September, according to the Nikkei business daily.

The news comes as the US is engaged in a trade war with China, which has particularly affected farmers. The Trump administration has imposed a 25 percent tariff on a separate $250 billion in Chinese products. Beijing has responded by refusing to buy US agricultural goods.

Idlib: Syrian Army Close to Khan Sheikhoun Gates
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army kept up the momentum of its offensive advances in the Northern province of Idlib on Wednesday, and and expanded its rule to the regions only 3 kilometers away from the strategic city of Khan Sheikhoun.

The Syrian Army troops, backed by artillery and missile fire, continued their clashes with Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay'at (the Levant Liberation Front or the Al-Nusra Front) terrorists on al-Hobait Road to the West of Khan Sheikhoun in Southern Idlib and captured the towns of Um Zeitouneh, Kharbeh Morshed and al-Mantar.

Army officers said government troops have expanded their presence to areas only three kilometers to Khan Sheikhoun from the West, and said are advancing towards al-Salam Station at the gates of the strategic city.

They pointed to the strategic importance of Khan Sheikhoun, and reminded that the city that links Eastern Idlib to the Western and Northern parts of the province is seen as the gate to the capture of Idlib city.

"Once, Khan Sheikhoun is captured, the grounds will be paved for the Syrian army to reopen the crucial Aleppo-Damascus road and further advance towards other strategic regions, including al-Tah, Kafar Sajneh and Ma'aret al-Numan," they stated.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Syrian Army troops engaged in fierce clashes with terrorists from al-Hobait in Southern Idlib and took control of Tal A’as heights and the town of Kafar Ain to West of Khan Sheikhoun.

Meantime, the Arabic-language website of the Russian Sputnik news agency reported that the Syrian and Russian air forces conducted several airstrikes on the terrorists’ centers in Khan Sheikhoun as well as the terrorists' movements near Khan Sheikhoun.

A battlefield source also said that the Syrian Army troops are presently seven kilometers to the West of Khan Sheikhoun on al-Hobait road and six kilometers to the East of Khan Sheikhoun on al-Sakik road.

"Once the Syrian Army units shake hands along these two roads, they could win control over the regions in Northern Hama after eight years of war," he added.

In a relevant development on Tuesday, the Syrian Army continued its advances towards the city of Khan Sheikhoun, the main bastion of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at terrorist group and took control of a region as government forces dispatched new military convoy to Southern Idlib.

The Syrian Army troops, backed by artillery and missile units, engaged in fierce clashes with Tahrir al-Sham terrorists in the town of Sakik in Southern Idlib and took control of the town of Tal Ra’i.

A military source, meantime, pointed to the Syrian Army advances towards the town of al-Tamaneh in Southern Idlib from Tal Ra’i, and said that the Syrian Army troops attacked defense lines of Tahrir al-Sham in al-Tamaneh.

The source noted that al-Tamaneh is the gate to Khan Sheikhoun, and said that other Syrian troops are also advancing towards West of Khan Sheikhoun from al-Hobait.

Meantime, the Syrian Army plans to lay siege on areas under the control of terrorists in Northern Hama from two directions after reaching Khan Sheikhoun.

The Syrian Army has dispatched a massive military convoy comprising tens of trucks carrying military equipment and elite forces to Sakik in Southern Idlib.

In a relevant development on Saturday, the Syrian Army regained control of a strategic region and the nearby hills in Southern Idlib.

The army forces, backed by artillery and missile fire, engaged in heavy clashes with Tahrir al-Sham terrorists in the town of al-Tamaneh in the Eastern parts of Khan Sheikhoun on Saturday, taking back control of the strategic town of Sakik and adjacent hills.

Meantime, a field source said that other Syrian army troops also clashed with militants in al-Latamineh and al-Habit in Western Khan Sheikhoun in Southern Idlib, adding that the army intends to surround the terrorists in Southern Idlib and facilitate the operations in Idlib and Hama by launching concurrent operations in several fronts, driving wedges to separate the region into several parts and cutting the militants' supply lines.

He added that the Syrian army has also dispatched a large number of forces and military equipment to Atshan, Abuda Ali and Abu Omar in Eastern Hama and Southern Idlib.

The Syrian army kicked off an offensive to impose full control over the terrorists’ strategic base in the town of al-Hobait in Southern Idlib on Saturday.

The Syrian Army units conducted artillery and missile attacks on terrorists’ military positions in al-Hobait in Southern Idlib, inflicting heavy losses and casualties on the militants.

Meantime, the Syrian Army troops engaged in heavy clashes with the terrorists in Um al-Khalakhil and al-Zarzour region in the Southeastern outskirts of Idlib.

A battlefield source pointed to the Syrian Army’s efforts to liberate al-Hobait town in Southern Idlib, and said once the Syrian army completes control over this region which is the gate to Idlib, it will be able to take control of the city of Khan Sheikhoun in Idlib and the international Damascus-Aleppo road.

He also referred to the Syrian Army plan to lay siege to the remaining areas controlled by terrorists in Northern Hama, and said that the Syrian army troops will manage to take full control of Sahl al-Ghab region in Northwestern Hama once they liberate the town of al-Hobait.

‘US Pressure on Turkey in Syria Could Have Grave Consequences for Washington’ – Ex-Military Staffer
Turkey’s Ministry of National Defence has confirmed the arrival of six American military personnel in the province of Sanliurfa in the southeast of the country, who will be involved in the work of the coordination centre for joint operations and the planned security zone in northern Syria.

Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar also said that the joint coordination centre for the US and Turkey is expected to start working in the coming days. At the same time, the Turkish minister stressed that Ankara would not tolerate delay in this matter and called on the United States to stop supporting the Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG) in Syria. According to Akar, if the United States does not comply, then Ankara has alternative plans for Syria.

Abdullah Ağar, a former military agent of the Special Forces Command of the Turkish Armed Forces, an expert in the field of security and counter-terrorism, a participant in military operations in Syria, has spoken about what alternative plans Turkey has.

“Turkey’s main concern is the threat of creating a terrorist quasi-state entity in the region, which could lead to the dismemberment of Syria and, in the medium and long-term, of Iraq and Turkey itself”, the expert noted.

“We see that America is exploiting this concern. Meanwhile, Ankara, as it were, warns Washington: if the agreements reached are not implemented, we have alternative options that involve a set of instruments of a geopolitical, strategic, tactical, and operational nature. Today, you are putting pressure on Turkey to achieve your goals, but subsequently this double play will result in grave consequences for you, as it will lead to a change in Turkish geopolitical preferences”, he said.

“The main US strategy in Syria is, on the one hand, to use the Kurdish forces of the YPG and PKK for their purposes, and, on the other, to develop cooperation with Turkey that is beneficial to Washington. Meanwhile, such a two-faced policy will have serious consequences. Currently, the problem for Turkey is not only being face to face with America in Syria; the issue now lies in the plane of geopolitical preferences and priorities. How long can such a two-track situation in relations with the USA continue? This question is now very often raised in Turkey. Today the 70-year-old alliance between Turkey and the United States is transforming and acquiring new dimensions, and it carries several contradictions. In the current period, we are witnessing the collapse of a multidimensional US policy, and the phenomena we are experiencing today are painful echoes of this process”, Ağar concluded.

Aleppo: Turkish Army Conducts Heavy Attacks on Kurdish Positions After Agreement with US
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Turkish Army and its allied militants carried out heavy attacks on the Kurdish militias’ military positions in Northern Aleppo after Ankara reached an agreement with the US to establish a safe zone in Northern Syria, the Kurdish-language media outlets said.

The Turkish Army and the terrorist groups backed by Ankara carried out over 127 mortar attacks on areas under the control of the Kurdish militias in several towns in Shirawa region and in the surrounding areas of Afrin in Northwestern Aleppo as the Turkish reconnaissance aircraft flew over the region, the Kurdish-language Hawar News website reported.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) also pointed to the Turkish Army attacks on the Kurds in the town of al-Malekieh in Northern Aleppo, and said that the two sides sustained several casualties.

Meantime, Manbij Military Council affiliated to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) also announced that the Ankara-backed Free Syrian Army has pounded the council’s military positions in the town of Kourhovik in the Western part of Manbij city in Northeastern Aleppo.

Meantime, battlefield sources said that the Turkish Army has dispatched forces and military equipment to the border region in Sorouj near Ain al-Arab (Kobani) region in Syria’s Northern Aleppo and Shanli Urfeh province near the city of Tal Abyaz in Northern Raqqa.

Ankara and Washington agreed last Wednesday to create a safe zone in Northeastern Syria.

In a relevant development on Wednesday, the Arabic-language media outlets reported that the Turkish Army has prepared thousands of militants for an upcoming military operation against the Kurdish militia is Eastern Euphrates.

The pro-militant Arabic-language Qassiyoun news website quoted commander of the so-called National Army affiliated to the Turkish Army Yousef Hamoud as saying that a sum of 14,000 Ankara-backed terrorists are ready for imminent military operations in Eastern Syria.

Hamoud noted that the military offensive against the Kurdish militia will take place in line with political agreements reached between the US and Turkey.

The Arabic-language website of the Russian Sputnik news agency quoted a Turkish military source as saying that Ankara’s military operations against Kurds will probably be conducted in coming days.

Meantime, several militants were killed in a recent attack by the Turkish army and its affiliated militants on Kurdish militia positions in Northern Aleppo.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has recent announced the start of a new round of military operations against Kurds in Eastern Syria in the near future, which he described as an extension of the Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch operations.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A prominent Lebanese political expert said that the US has turned its back on the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) after an agreement with Ankara to create a safe zone in Northern Syria, adding that Washington is using the Kurds as a tool to attain its goals.

Hassan Hardan told the Arabic-language al-Alam news channel that the US has struck an agreement with Turkey against the SDF after using them as an instrument in Syria.

He added that the SDF implemented the US policies in a move to establish an autonomous region in Northern Syria but now the possibility for the formation of such a canton has faded away, noting that now the Kurdish forces should decide if they want to continue their ties with the US despite its disloyalties.

Hardan said that the agreement between the US and Turkey was predictable since the very first day because the US never backtracks from supporting its strategic ally, adding that relations between Washington and the SDF were just directed towards meeting the US demands in the Syria crisis.

But Damascus lashed out at the US-Turkish deal.

“Syria categorically and blatantly rejects the agreement […] on the establishment of a so-called safe zone”, the state-run SANA news agency cited an unnamed Syrian foreign ministry source as saying on Thursday.

The source also argued that “Syria's Kurds who have accepted to become a tool in this aggressive US-Turkish project bear a historical responsibility in this regard”.

According to Damascus, the deal represents "a dangerous escalation and a threat to peace and stability" in the area.

Damascus Slams US-Turkey Safe Zone Deal as 'Blatant Attack' on Syria's Sovereignty - State Media
Earlier, the Turkish Defence Ministry said in a statement that Ankara and Washington had agreed to create a centre to coordinate joint operations and the formation of a 'safe zone' in northern Syria.

Damascus has lashed out at a US-Turkish deal to establish a safe zone in northern Syria, which the Syrian government said rides roughshod over the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

“Syria categorically and blatantly rejects the agreement […] on the establishment of a so-called safe zone,” state-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) cited an unnamed Syrian Foreign Ministry source as saying on Thursday.

The source also argued that “Syria's Kurds, who have accepted to become a tool in this aggressive US-Turkish project, bear a historical responsibility in this regard.”

The Syrian Foreign Ministry also slammed the deal as “a gross violation of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria”, which violates the principles of international law and the UN charter. According to the Ministry, the deal represents "a dangerous escalation and a threat to peace and stability" in the area.

The statement comes after Turkish and US officials clinched a deal on Wednesday to establish a “joint operations centre” aimed at creating a safe zone in northern Syria to grapple with tensions between Turkey and a US-backed Kurdish militia.

“The talks that took place in the Turkish Defence Ministry on 5-7 August with US military representatives regarding the planned safe zone in the north of Syria in coordination with the United States have been completed. During the talks, the sides agreed to take measures as soon as possible to eliminate Turkey’s concerns about its national security,” the Turkish Defence Ministry said in a statement.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, for his part, welcomed the agreement, saying that “it was important that a step be taken east of the Euphrates [River] and this is being taken together with the Americans”.

“With the creation of the operations centre, the process will begin”, he pointed out, in an apparent reference to the creation of a safe zone in northern Syria.

Earlier, Erdogan said that he had notified Russia and the US about his plans to launch an operation in Syria in the east of the Euphrates River. He, however, did not reveal any other details about the upcoming operations, including the date of its start.

The territory in the east of the Euphrates is currently controlled by the self-defence forces, which mainly include Kurdish-led militants.

For years, Turkey has launched operations against the Kurds in the south-east of the country as well as in the northern parts of Iraq and Syria. The major crackdown on the Kurdish militias started in Turkey in 2015 and resulted in massive casualties, including the death of civilians.

In 2018, Turkey led Operation Olive Branch to take over the predominantly-Kurdish district of Afrin in northern Syria. In March this year, Ankara announced an operation against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), designated by Ankara as a terrorist organisation, in northern Iraq.

US to Withdraw Troops From Area of Turkish Operation in Syria - Ankara
Earlier, the Syrian Foreign Ministry "categorically and blatantly" rejected efforts by Washington and Ankara to create a "safe zone" in northern Syria, saying US and Turkish interference rides roughshods over the Syrian Arab Republic's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

US President Donald Trump has promised to withdraw US troops from areas of Kurdish-controlled northern Syria where a Turkish operation will be taking place, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has announced.

"In a telephone call with our president, the US president informed us that the US would be vacating the area. We will discuss the question of coordination after the withdrawal takes place. The agreement with the US on the creation of a safe zone is a very important first step," Cavusoglu said, speaking at a press briefing on Thursday.

The foreign minister added that Turkey would not allow the US to delay the implementation of a safe zone under any circumstances, and has shown Washington that it is prepared to back its words by deeds. "Either we do it together, or we will be able to do it ourselves," he said.

"Our decision is to create a safe zone so that there are no terrorists there from the Syrian Kurdish self-defence forces and the Kurdistan Workers Party. But we will not allow this agreement to be turned into the [US] Roadmap for Manbij," Cavusoglu noted, referring to the Turkish-US security agreement negotiated on last year.

Earlier, the Turkish Defence Ministry announced that Ankara and Washington had agreed to establish a coordination centre for joint operations, and to a security 'safe zone' in northern Syria in which an area of Syrian territory between 30 and 40 km wide would be controlled by Turkey in coordination with the United States, with Syrian Kurdish forces in the area forced to leave the area and surrender their heavy weapons.

Syrian authorities rejected the agreement, calling it a "dangerous" violation of Syria's sovereignty, and lamenting that "Syria's Kurds, who have accepted to become a tool in this aggressive US-Turkish project, bear a historical responsibility in this regard."

Damascus called on the international community to condemn this example of "flagrant aggression" by Turkey and the United States.

The US military established a presence in northern and northeastern Syria during the war with the Daesh (ISIS)* terrorist group, joining local, predominantly Kurdish militias in driving the terrorists out of these territories and helping them to establish self-governance autonomously from Damascus.

Turkey has launched several military operations against Kurdish militia units in Syria along the Turkish border, classifying them as 'terrorists' and accusing them of maintaining ties to the Kurdistan Workers Party, a Turkey-based Kurdish organisation which Ankara also considers as 'terrorists', and with whom Turkish security forces have clashed repeatedly in Turkey itself in recent years.

Earlier this year, a senior commander from the Syrian Democratic Forces alliance governing northern and eastern Syria said he felt a deal between Damascus and Syria's Kurds on autonomy for the country's north was "inevitable." However, in February, Bouthaina Shaaban, an advisor to Syrian President Bashar Assad, said the kind of autonomy the Kurds were asking for was impossible, since the country is a multiethnic and multireligious "melting pot," with all citizens "equal before Syrian law and the Syrian constitution."

US President Donald Trump began talking about the idea of withdrawing the estimated US 2,000 troops in Syria late last year, citing the defeat of Daesh and his lack of interest in remaining entangled in "endless" Middle Eastern wars, but has since waffled on the idea.

Arab Paper: Bin Salman Quietly Retreating against Iran


Arab Paper: Bin Salman Quietly Retreating against Iran
TEHRAN (FNA)- A leading Arab newspaper wrote that Saudi Arabia's failure in Syria and Yemen and its disappointment at a US war against Iran have forced Riyadh to soften tone and policies towards Tehran.

"Saudi Arabia has started the policy of a quiet retreat given the Yemenis' advances and the world's recognition of Iran as a regional power in the Persian Gulf after its confrontation against the US and Britain," the Arabic-language al-Quds al-Arabi wrote on Tuesday.

"Riyadh has now come to realize that neither Washington nor Tel Aviv is interested in war against Iran," it added.

The paper underlined that Saudi Arabia has now come to repeat the same choice that it was forced to make after years of proxy war against Syria and Assad in the case of Iran: "retreat".

That's part of the reason why it has decreased its attacks against the Yemenis, it continued.

Al-Quds al-Arabia wrote that the Saudi media no more pursue the policy of free insult and attack against Iran and are now acting cautiously, noting that the UAE which has also come to develop the same notion has started withdrawing its forces from Yemen which, the paper said, paves the ground for Riyadh's military pullout from the war-ravaged country.

Iran has long called for dialogue in the format of a regional forum to resolve differences with Saudi Arabia and the UAE through talks.

"Iran welcomes resolving issues with Emirates and Saudi Arabia peacefully because that will be in favor of all regional countries," Iranian President's Chief of Staff Mahmoud Vaezi said in July.

"Saudi Arabia’s policies have left them alone in the Muslim world and the region,” he added.

"The Saudis started a war that they thought would be ended in a few weeks,” Vaezi said, adding that “Yemen war was harmful to Saudi’s economy and distorted the country's face”.

“Saudi ambassador to UN admitted what Iran has repeated many times i.e. regional issues must be resolved through negotiations and by regional countries,” he underlined.

To Avoid US Big Tech's Wiretapping Users Should Shift to Chinese Software & Devices – Cyber Expert

Forbes has reported alleged plans by Facebook to "wiretap" WhatsApp and other messaging services thereby rendering their end-to-end encryption useless. While the tech giant rubbished the claim, concerns continue to mount over Facebook's use of surveillance techniques to track users.

In late July, Kalev Leetaru, a Forbes contributor, raised concerns over Facebook's alleged plan to insert a backdoor content-scanner or "wiretapping algorithm" into its popular messaging apps.

"In Facebook’s vision, the actual end-to-end encryption client itself such as WhatsApp will include embedded content moderation and blacklist filtering algorithms," Leetaru claimed, suggesting that the tech giant would be able to scan messages before they are sent, allowing it to report suspicious activity.

Will Cathcart, WhatsApp’s vice president of product management, vehemently rejected Leetaru's assumption.

"We haven’t added a backdoor to WhatsApp," Cathcart told tech and science publication OneZero. "To be crystal clear, we have not done this, have zero plans to do so, and if we ever did, it would be quite obvious and detectable that we had done it. We understand the serious concerns this type of approach would raise, which is why we are opposed to it."

A Facebook spokesperson told OneZero that any research specialist would be capable of examining the WhatApps code to find out if anything had been changed, adding that the application is one of the most "scrutinised" in the world.

Earlier, US Attorney General William Barr criticised tech companies for not providing access to their "warrant-proof" encryption thereby thwarting law enforcement efforts to track criminal activities.

In September 2018 that the US Department of Justice reportedly tried but failed to force Facebook to break the end-to-end encryption of its Messenger chat app to provide law enforcement with a backdoor to spy on the voice conversations of gang suspects.

Facebook's Surveillance Practices

"Facebook wants to provide users with end-to-end encrypted communication. This is very good for privacy and 'democracy promotion,'" said Petri Krohn, a Finnish cybersecurity analyst. "Kalev Leetaru is saying that totally secret communication would not be in the interests of internet companies, as they need to access and read the messages to target their advertising. Reading the messages in the end devices would solve the problem. This seems to be what Facebook is planning to do. The end result would be cryptography that could be breached by US technology companies and the US government, but not other governments."

The cyber-security analyst draws attention to a whole set of Facebook's surveillance techniques aside from the disputed "wiretapping algorithm" story.

Krohn does not rule out the possibility that Facebook is already using "edge AI" to listen in on conversations referring to Leetaru's May claim that the tech giant could use users' microphones "to scan the surrounding background environment 24/7, creating a globally distributed network of billions of always-on microphones transcribing global private conversations."

Earlier, in July, cyber-security experts raised concerns about the Silicon Valley giant's "automatic alternative text" that uses "object recognition technology to create a description of a photo for the blind and vision-loss community." Experts suggested that it could be used to track users and warned that it could be abused either by law enforcement and intelligence agencies or by hackers.

In February, CNBC revealed that Facebook maintains a list of individuals issuing threats against the company and tracks their whereabouts using the location data these users provide through Facebook apps and websites. Several of the tech giant's former employees called the tactics "very Big Brother-esque."

In June 2018, Siva Vaidhyanathan, a US cultural historian and media scholar, said in a Slate article that Facebook was conducting commercial surveillance on billions of users on behalf of its advertising clients, "using biographical data, records of interactions with others, the text of their posts, location (through Facebook apps on mobile phones equipped with GPS features), and the 'social graph'−a map of the relationships between items on Facebook (photos, videos, news stories, advertisements, groups, pages, and the profiles of its 2.2 billion users)."

"The chief danger from the Facebook commercial surveillance system lies in the concentration of power," Vaidhyanathan wrote, adding that the tech firm's huge set of personalised dossiers could be abused by both "peers and states."

The only way to avoid the US-based tech giants' surveillance is to use alternative devices and software, Krohn believes.

"To escape wiretapping by the US or the Five Eyes one must use Chinese phones with purely Chinese software and services. Or use a PC with only open source software, preferably a PC with a processor at least 10 years old, without the embedded spyware in the Intel Management Engine", the cybersecurity expert suggests, referring to an autonomous subsystem that has been incorporated in all of Intel's processor chipsets since 2008.

‘World is watching’: US reaction points to Hong Kong as a ‘color revolution’
If the iconography and tone of Hong Kong protests and the support from US diplomats weren’t enough, Washington’s words of concern sure seem to suggest that the months-long demonstrations amount to a ‘color revolution.’

On Monday, the Trump administration urged “all sides to refrain from violence.” While carefully paying lip service to Hong Kong being an internal Chinese matter, the unnamed White House official who spoke to the press said the US supported those “looking for democracy.”

The president’s top legislative ally, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), was far more direct: “Any violent crackdown would be completely unacceptable... The world is watching.”

One cannot help but recall that the same phrasing was used for Ukraine, during the Maidan protests of 2013 that culminated in a violent coup in February 2014 – and plunged that country into secession of Crimea and civil war in the Donbass.

The impression is only reinforced by the images reminiscent of Kiev coming out of Hong Kong, showing helmeted protesters in black masks firing grenades and throwing firebombs at police – none of which has stopped the chorus of US media from calling the protesters “pro-democracy.”

There is even nationalism, albeit of a xeno variety: some protesters have brandished flags of Hong Kong’s former colonial master, the UK. Others have embraced the US flag, telling reporters it stands for “freedom, human rights and democracy.”

All of this has been seen before, most recently in Kiev but also in other places. There was even the requisite meddling by the State Department: US diplomat Julie Eadeh was photographed meeting with protest leaders. It wasn’t quite Victoria Nuland passing out cookies to the Maidan demonstrators, but it was enough to raise alarm.

The State Department did not deny the meeting, arguing that it was something “American diplomats do every single day around the world.”

“Our diplomat was doing her job and we commend her for her work,” State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said at a news briefing last week. Ortagus then denounced what she said was publication of Eadeh’s personal details, including the names of her children, in Chinese media as the action of a “thuggish regime.”

It is worth noting that the protests have already accomplished their original purpose, as the bill that would have allowed the extradition of criminal suspects to mainland China has been suspended. So now the demonstrators are calling for city officials to resign and broader political reforms, open-ended demands that will likely only grow with time.

Even though US President Donald Trump has steered clear of Hong Kong and made sure to describe is as an internal Chinese matter, focusing his diatribes entirely on trade, the Chinese public is becoming increasingly convinced that Washington is instigating turmoil in Hong Kong along the lines of “color revolutions” elsewhere.

If this charge is in fact true, that is very bad news for the already strained Sino-American relations – but also for Hong Kong itself.

Color evolutions are a type of regime change technique developed by US strategists and executed by diplomats and non-governmental organizations. They rely on exploiting legitimate grievances of the local population, amplifying with money and marketing small groups of activists they either create or co-opt. The goal is to provoke the government into a violent crackdown, so as to destroy its legitimacy – whereupon it can be replaced in the name of “democracy and human rights.”

The prototype for this approach was the October 2000 coup in Serbia, which US diplomats and the cheerleader media then invoked in subsequent cases.

In the “best case” scenario, such as Serbia, the immediate body count is low but the country’s democratic institutions are irreparably damaged and corrupted by this sort of fraud and manipulation. Ukraine, Syria, or Libya are what the worst-case scenario looks like: civil war or anarchy, with tens of thousands of deaths.

Neither of which matters to the US diplomats, media or politicians, though. They declare it a “victory for democracy” and move on to the next target, to replay the scenario all over again.

Huawei to re-organize within three to five years

Huawei Mulls Building 'Invincible Iron Army' to Fight US Sanctions Amid Trade War – Reports
The announcement comes after Huawei was hit by a wave of US sanctions and tariffs, with Qualcomm, Intel, Broadcom and others denying access to key components for its smartphones and Matebook computers.

According to Bloomberg, citing an unconfirmed memo, Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei said that the company needs to create an "invincible iron army" capable of weathering the US trade war on China and planned to implement changes over the next three to five years.

The Chinese telecoms giant also planned to restructure its operations after the Trump administration imposed sanctions on the Chinese telecoms giant, with the company facing a “painful long march”, Bloomberg reported on Monday.

Mr Ren's 'Long March' refers to the Chinese People's Liberation Army's tactical retreat from the nationalist Guomintang, eventually leading to the latter's defeat and the rise of Mao Zedong to power.

Google also temporarily halted Android updates for Huawei phones and Microsoft pulled Huawei products from its store before reversing the decision as US companies waited for US officials to provide licences allowing transactions with Beijing.

“We have to complete an overhaul in harsh and difficult conditions, creating an invincible iron army that can help us achieve victory,” Ren Zhengfei said in the memo dated 2 August. “We absolutely have to complete this re-organization within three to five years.”

“Two bullets fired at our consumer business group unfortunately hit the oil tanks,” Mr Ren reportedly wrote.

Mr Ren later spoke about Huawei’s edge over US telecoms technologies, stating that Huawei’s meteoric rise prompted Washington to attack the company and limit emerging markets from accessing the company’s next-generation products.

“The U.S. doesn’t use the most advanced 5G technology,” Ren wrote. “That may leave it lagging behind in the artificial intelligence sector.”

The news comes as Huawei launched plans for a research and development centre in Shanghai’s Qingpu district, SCMP reported on 7 August, where the company will invest 10bn yuan (£1.2bn) and house 30,000 to 40,000 workers to help the tech multinational make its own components for its consumer products as well as IT and Internet of Things devices to reduce dependency on US tech firms.

Huawei also unveiled its Harmony operating system on Friday, an open-source OS which aims to replace Android if Google refuses to provide updates for Huawei devices. Following the announcement, US officials halted issuing licences to Huawei on Saturday, as promised by US president Donald Trump in June, after Beijing refused to buy US agricultural goods, with the former slapping 10 percent tariffs on $300bn in Chinese goods and stating it would not conduct business with the latter unless a new US-China trade deal was reached.

サウジの名前が出てきません。イランはサウジの軍事力は米国が握っているとみている? あるいはイスラエルの属国だと?





'We're Here to Deter Iran, But Ready to Strike if Ordered' - US Military on Aircraft Carrier in Gulf
The United States deployed the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Persian Gulf in May, in what National Security Adviser John Bolton described as a "clear and unmistakable" message to Iran that any attack on American interests or those of its allies would be met with "unrelenting force".

US officers on the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier, deployed at an American naval base in Bahrain along with some smaller vessels, claimed in an interview with Sky News that their mission is to deter Iran from striking US targets, but added that they were also ready to launch offensive strikes if ordered.

"A large part of deterrence is the readiness that backs that deterrence up. We are ready to defend the US and the US interests if called upon... My job is to be here, to be ready, to deter and to defend if required", Rear Admiral Michael Boyle, commander of Carrier Strike Group 12, said.

The USS Abraham Lincoln was sent to the Middle East in May due to what Washington claimed was a "number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings" from Iran. Despite the highly publicised deployment, the aircraft carrier has not passed through the Strait of Hormuz, a strategic waterway linking Mideast crude producers to crucial world markets.

"For our mission here, which is deterrence, we are in the place we need to be. The people in the know in Iran know that we are more of a deterrent here than we are in the Arabian Gulf because from this position we can reach them and they can't reach us. In a boxer's analogy we have got overreach from the spot where we are right now", Boyle added.

According to Sky News, aircraft on the carrier were supposed to strike several Iranian targets in June when Tehran brought down a US spy drone, which it claimed had violated its airspace and ignored multiple warnings to leave the area. At the time, President Donald Trump called off the retaliatory strikes just 10 minutes before it was set to be launched, explaining that the death of an estimated 150 Iranians was disproportionate to the loss of an unmanned aerial vehicle.

The drone incident was one of the many episodes contributing to the spike in US-Iran tensions: Washington has as well accused Tehran of being behind "sabotage attacks" on oil tankers off the UAE coast in mid-May and in the Gulf of Oman in early June, while Iran denied the allegations and urged the US to cease "warmongering" and "false flag" ops.

As a result, the United States has proposed to form an international maritime coaliton and invited several European countries, including Germany, France, and the UK, along with other nations, such as Japan, South Korea, and Australia, to join. While some of them have expressed unwillingness to take part in the initiative, the UK has signed up for the mission.

Iranian Foreign Minister: US, Allies Turning Gulf Region Into 'Matchbox Ready to Ignite'
The comments by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stem from a United States' plan to build an international maritime coalition to patrol the Persian Gulf against a professed threat from Tehran.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has accused the United States and its allies of turning the Persian Gulf region into a "matchbox ready to ignite", according to Reuters, citing the diplomat's interview with Al Jazeera television.

The Gulf waterway "is narrow, it will become less safe as foreign (navy) vessels increase their presence in it", the Qatar-based TV channel cited him as saying.

"The region has become a matchbox ready to ignite because America and its allies are flooding it with weapons", Zarif said.

Iran's top diplomat, who has recently been sanctioned by the US, previoulsy said that Washington had failed to create an allied naval mission because "countries that are its friends are too ashamed of being in a coalition with them".

His interview follows a similar remark by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, who insisted that the security of the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz was the elite unit's responsibility, and that they did not need the presence of foreigners in the region.

Tangsiri has, likewise, addressed Israel's reported intention to join a US-proposed naval initiative in the Gulf to ensure security of navigation routes there, saying that it would result in war and confrontation in the region.

Meanwhile, IRGC Commander-in-Chief Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami has dismissed the US-led anti-Iran mission as the "coalition of demons", warning that Israel's potential involvement would jeopardise the Jewish state's very existence.

The United States has proposed to set up an international maritime coalition, dubbed Operation Sentinel, to police the Persian Gulf and nearby straits in the aftermath of several "sabotage attacks" on oil tankers there that were immediately blamed on Tehran despite its consistent denials.

Washington has already invited a number of European states, as well as Japan, Australia, and South Korea, among other nations, to join its mission, which it claims is aimed at securing navigation routes for vessels.

Already existing tensions in the Gulf were further exacerbated in May when four oil tankers − two Saudi, one Norwegian, and one Emirati − were allegedly attacked near the UAE port of Fujairah. The following month, two other vessels − Japanese and Norwegian − were targeted in a similar incident in the Gulf of Oman, near the Strait of Hormuz.

In July, the IRGC seized a UK-flagged oil tanker, Stena Impero, in the Strait of Hormuz over alleged violations of martime rules. The vessel's detention came a few weeks after Gibraltar's authorities seized an Iranian supertanker with the assistance of UK Royal Marines, accusing it of delivering oil to Syria in violation of EU sanctions. Tehran, which denied the allegations, later stressed that the Stena Impero seizure was not a retaliatory move.

Israel may ‘spark a war’ if it joins US-led flotilla in the Persian Gulf, Iran’s navy chief warns
Tehran has advised Israel to stay clear of the Persian Gulf, where the US has been struggling to amass an anti-Iran armada, noting that every vessel illegally present in the region increases the risk of an all-out conflict.

“Any illegitimate presence by the Zionists in the waters of the Persian Gulf could spark a war,” commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Navy, Alireza Tangsiri, warned Sunday.

Israel reportedly volunteered to provide intelligence and assistance to the US-led coalition against Iran, as the pressure in the Persian Gulf mounts, after a series of mysterious tanker attacks and reciprocal vessel seizures by Iran and the UK. Israel warned last month that it is ready to strike Iran in the case of any “mistaken calculations,” piling on the pressure after an Iran said a US attack would mean “only half an hour will remain of Israel’s lifespan.”

The Islamic Republic has vowed to protect its sovereignty in the Strait of Hormuz and beyond, accusing the US of trying to enforce its unilateral oil sanctions though military pressure after failing to do it via political extortion. Washington insists its intentions are peaceful and that it is rallying foreign warships to the region with the noble goal of protecting shipping lanes and vessels from Tehran.

So far, the US has had trouble drumming up support for its “maritime policing” initiative in, as among European countries, only the UK has been eager to send two of its vessels into the midst of the tensions.

‘They were thrown into sea as it blew up’: Rosatom gives details of deadly nuke-powered engine blast
The explosion of a secretive isotope-powered missile engine was so powerful that it blew the device into pieces and threw workers off a sea platform, Russian nuclear agency Rosatom said. Searches for the missing went on all day.

Dramatic details of the tragedy that rocked the Arkhangelsk region this week, and that fueled western tabloids with rumors of a new Chernobyl-like disaster, were shared by the state atomic energy corporation on Saturday.

It revealed that the blast, which killed five employees and seriously injured three others, took place on a sea platform and followed a series of trials.

The test of the classified “liquid-propellant engine” went smoothly at first, but then the device caught fire and blew up, Rosatom said.

The blast threw several employees into the sea, giving some hope of finding them alive.

Water in high latitudes is ice-cold even in summertime, but search attempts lasted the whole day, until hopes faded. Only then were the five operatives declared dead.

Three more workers have been hospitalized with various traumas and burns. The agency lauded the work of the employees, who, it said, were well aware of the dangerous nature of experimental engine tests.

The five who perished had been working on an “isotope power source” for a propulsion system. An increase in background radiation was registered on the test site, but the measurements are said to have soon returned to normal.

The city of Severodvinsk, located some 30km east of the test range and hosting a key shipyard of Russia’s Northern Fleet, added fuel to rumors after authorities posted –and then deleted– news of a brief radiation spike to 0.11 microsieverts per hour, with the norm standing at 0.6. The report said that it lasted for half an hour only, and the daily average wasn’t seriously affected.

The secrecy surrounding the ill-fated test inevitably gave rise to conspiracy theories.

Pictures of hazmat teams taking measurements and specially-prepared ambulances transporting the injured were used to support some panic-inducing media headlines, while tabloids speculated over the type of weapon involved in the test.

However, rumors of a serious radioactive cover-up have not been supported on the ground, and neighboring Finland has not registered any deviations from normal levels. The Russian military has, meanwhile, refuted a report that a Rosatom vessel, capable of collecting radioactive waste, was dispatched to Severodvinsk, saying it had actually been undergoing scheduled trials.

with the norm standing at 0.6 とは 0.6μSv/hが「平常値」という意味ではないですね。高すぎます。

Experimental ‘isotope & liquid-propellant’ engine blast kills 5 Russian nuclear experts – Rosatom
Five staff of Russia’s nuclear corporation Rosatom were killed and three suffered serious burns in the blast during a test of a liquid-propellant engine that resulted in a brief spike of radiation around the military testing site.

The Rosatom engineering and technical team was working on the ”isotope power source" for a propulsion system on Thursday, when the accident happened. The blast caused a background radiation spike, which quickly returned back to normal.

“As a result of the accident at the military firing range in Arkhangelsk region during liquid reactive propulsion system tests, five employees of the state corporation Rosatom were killed,” the company said. Three military and civilian specialists remain in serious condition, but their injuries are “not life-threatening.”

It remains unclear what type of ‘experimental’ missile or jet engine was being tested. The secrecy around the failed military test and initial tight-lipped statements by the Defense Ministry immediately triggered conspiracy theories about authorities trying to conceal nothing less than a Chernobyl-scale incident.

A video of hazmat-suited specialists taking measurements on the helicopter that airlifted the burn victims only added fuel to rumors, even though the medical personnel was clearly visible unloading the injured without any additional precautions.

Adding to the confusion, social media were flooded with chilling photos and videos of a massive blast and a mushroom-like plume of black smoke – which came from a totally different incident in Siberia. On Monday, a depot of high-caliber tank and artillery shells in Russia’s Krasnoyarsk region was devastated by powerful explosions, resulting in one death and nearly two dozen injuries.

The Arkhangelsk region site is one of the main research and development facilities for the Russian Navy, where sea-based ballistic, intercontinental, cruise and anti-aircraft missiles are being developed and tested. It is located some 30km west of the city of Severodvinsk, which is home to a major base of the Northern Fleet.

Severodvinsk authorities placed rescue services on high alert as measurements immediately after the incident showed background radiation levels three times above the safe limit of 0.6 microsieverts. In less than half an hour, however, they dropped back to normal – and the daily average remained within the norms, thus posing little risk for the population, city authorities said.

“We are monitoring [the radiation levels] around the clock. Over the last 24 hours, no change was witnessed,” Severodvinsk's city administration said Friday. Soil, air and water samples examined by a team of scientists lead by the federal Consumer Protection agency also found no abnormal radiation readings.

"measurements immediately after the incident showed background radiation levels three times above the safe limit of 0.6 microsieverts. " 安全基準値が0.6μSv/h、その3倍は1.8μSv/hということですね。
