Israel warns of attacks on Russian air defence systems in Syria if used against its warplanes

Israel's Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Tuesday (April 24) that his country would attack Russian S-300 air defence systems in Syria if they were used against Israeli targets.

His remarks came a day after the Russian newspaper Kommersant reported that Moscow could soon start to deliver S-300 systems to its ally Damascus, and cited a source as warning of "catastrophic" consequences if they were attacked.

"What's important to us is that the defensive weapons the Russians are giving Syria won't be used against us," Mr Lieberman told the news website Ynet.

"If they're used against us, we'll act against them."

EU encourages migration by offering large social benefits, why would the flow stop? – Putin

The flow of migrants arriving in European countries is unlikely to stop until the EU itself addresses the issue and reviews its policies, which effectively “encourage” immigration, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said.

The European Union should address immigration and should not expect the problem to somehow fix itself, Putin said on Tuesday, following talks with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban in Moscow.

“If one encourages migration with large social benefits and other bonuses, why should this flow ever stop?” the Russian president said. “Yet it’s up to our colleagues in Europe to decide for themselves what is better for Europe and Europeans.”

Trump mulls idea of permanent US military base in Poland, says Warsaw ‘likes it very much’

US President Donald Trump is eyeing a permanent military presence in Poland, saying the country “likes the idea very much.” Warsaw had stated earlier it was ready to pay up to $2 billion to have a US military base on its soil.

“Poland is willing to make a very major contribution to the United States to come in and have a presence in Poland, and certainly it's something we'll discuss,” Trump said on Tuesday while speaking at the White House before meeting his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda.

Poland “likes the idea very much,” according to Trump, who has been looking at the prospect of putting a permanent military base in Poland “very seriously.” Duda’s statements at the Tuesday briefing indicate Warsaw is indeed more than eager to have a permanent US base on their soil.

Russia will take all necessary measures to protect its servicemen, who “support the Syrian people in their fight against terrorism,” the ministry stressed.

‘Rockets falling, explosions over sea’: Witnesses recall moment of Israeli raid in Latakia (VIDEO)

Speaking to RT’s agency Ruptly, residents recalled rockets raining down and huge blasts.

Local man Ammar Altounji said the incident unfolded when he was walking with his friends on Monday.

"Suddenly we heard a sound, but we didn’t recognize what it was. Then we saw explosions...the explosions were very big. After that, we saw explosions in the middle of the sea...but we also didn't know what it was. [Then] we saw anti-aircraft guns firing, and we saw a missile launched to intercept the rockets that were falling."

He said that Israel has "targeted us more than once in the past few days" and urged the international community to "intervene to put an end to the Israeli incursions in Syrian airspace."

The Israeli raid injured 10 people, two of whom were taken to hospital, according to the state-run Al-Ikhbariya TV.

Feinstein on Christine Ford Sexual Assault Allegations Against Kavanaugh “I Can’t Say That Everything is Truthful”

Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) admitted Tuesday that she “can’t say that everything is truthful” about the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh brought forth by far-left activist Christine Ford.

Last Thursday, Senator Dianne Feinstein referred a mysterious letter about Kavanaugh to the FBI after holding onto it for months.

She started a firestorm by holding onto this letter about Kavanaugh then releasing it at the 11th hour in a “me too” ambush in an effort to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

By the time Lehman Brothers filed for the largest bankruptcy in American history on Sept. 15, 2008, the country had been navigating stormy global financial waters for more than a year.

Exclusive: US police 'using Tiger Text app to conceal evidence'

Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit has discovered that a self-deleting messaging app called Tiger Text has been adopted by at least one US police department, which may have used it to share sensitive and potentially incriminating information that they wouldn't want to be disclosed to a court.

Current and former officers from the Long Beach Police Department in Southern California have told Al Jazeera that their police-issued phones had Tiger Text installed on them.

The Tiger Text app is designed to erase text messages after a set time period. Once the messages have been deleted, they cannot be retrieved - even through forensic analysis of the phone.

The Major Attack On Syria Followed Putin-Erdogan Agreement For Demilitarized Zone In Idlib

The world once again was taken to the brink of World War 3 Monday night, and the situation is still extremely dangerous. A massive wide-ranging assault on multiple Syrian provinces, including the coastal cities of Latakia and Tartus, occurred Monday evening reportedly by Israel and possibly with the help of France or the US, though the Pentagon is denying any US assistance during the assault.

With Syrian and Russian air defenses responding during the over hour-long attack which targeted among other things an alleged chemical weapons research center, and in the confusion of missiles cross the sky, a Russian maritime patrol plane was shot down with 14 personnel on board. The Pentagon is claiming it was Syrian defense which "accidentally" downed the plane, while Russia is pointing out its radar observed a French frigate firing in the area just before the plane went down.

Congress Members Demand Trump Seek Approval Before Military Action In Syria

A group of over 40 Congress members have sent President Trump a bipartisan letter reminding him that the US Constitution requires that the president seek Congressional approval before taking military action in Syria or elsewhere. Congressman Justin Amash (R-Mich.) announced via Twitter on Monday that the letter had been sent to the White House.

Ironically Rep. Amash made the announcement just as Monday's evening's massive Israeli strike on Syria was underway, which resulted in a downed Russian surveillance plane carrying 14 troops amidst the confusion of missiles flying over the Mediterranean as it was hit by Syrian defense attempting to stave off the attack by Israel.

Sep 18 12:17


After the Syrians accidentally targeted a Russian surveillance aircraft over the Mediterranean and the Russians pinned the blame on Israel, the corporate propaganda media scrambled to spin the story.

The Pentagon and State Department directed media insinuate the tragedy was the fault of the Russians, who got in the way of yet another—there are hundreds—illegal Israeli attack on Syria. The illegality of these persistent attacks on Syrian sovereignty is rarely if ever pointed out by the national security state’s scribes and teleprompter readers.

Here is what these lackluster careerists in service to the state ignore: the Israelis used the Russian aircraft as cover.

“The Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as cover and set it up to be targeted by the Syrian air defense forces. As a consequence, the Il-20, which has radar cross-section much larger than the F-16, was shot down by an S-200 system missile,” a spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

There are few countries or international accords that are not targeted by the malevolence of a president who declared at his inauguration that “it’s going to be only America first, America first” and whose disciples applaud his erratic lurches from truculent insults to maudlin self-pity.

Two People Who Recently Got Ill in Salisbury Not Exposed to Nerve Agent - Police

Earlier, local police cordoned off streets in Salisbury and an Italian restaurant as a "precautionary measure" after a man and woman fell ill amid reports of "possible nerve agent poisoning." At least one of the patients was thought to be Russian.

Following medical tests, UK police announced that the two people who recently became ill in Salisbury had not been poisoned by a nerve agent, despite initial reports suggesting that the couple’s symptoms were “consistent with Novichok poisoning.”

"Tests have confirmed that the two patients who fell ill in Prezzo restaurant in Salisbury on Sunday evening were not exposed to any kind of nerve agent. Following test results, at this stage, this is not being treated as suspicious," the Salisbury police said in its Twitter blog.

New Mexico Suing Google & Twitter for Knowingly and Illegally Exploiting Children Online

As YouTube, Google, and Twitter crack down on peaceful channels, censor alternative media, and allow child exploitation videos to flourish, New Mexico has filed a lawsuit against them and several app developers for illegally collecting data from children under the age of 13 without parental consent.

According to UPI, New Mexico Attorney General Balderas said the companies are violating the 1998 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), a federal law, by collecting and selling the data on children.

“These apps can track where children live, play, and go to school with incredible precision,” Balderas said of the insidious practice. “These multi-million-dollar tech companies partnering with app developers are taking advantage of New Mexican children, and the unacceptable risk of data breach and access from third parties who seek to exploit and harm our children will not be tolerated in New Mexico.”

Indian pilot saves 370 lives by manually landing plane after all flight systems fail

Flight AI-101 Captain Rustom Palia went on to described how there was only one radioaltimeter functioning and the Traffic Collision and Avoidance System had failed.

In a stomach-twisting account of the technical faults they were facing, Palia added that there was “no Auto-land, no wind-shear systems, [no] Auto Speed Brake, and the Auxiliary Power Unit is unserviceable as well.”

Prospects became even bleaker when the pilots discovered they couldn't even rely on the automatic landing system, namely the Instrument Landing System (ILS) receivers.

These are crucial for a plane landing on the right path in bad weather, which the Boeing 777-300 was in the process of doing that day.

“Basically, we've got a single source radio altimeter, we have a Traffic Collision and Avoidance System failure,” the commander of Air India 777-300 reported to Air Traffic Control in New York via radio.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is a massive system failure on that 777!

Senator Dianne Feinstein Pushes Back on Hearing for Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Ford

Senate Republicans gave into the Democrats by agreeing to hear Ford’s case, which was first leveled in July in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein but was only recently brought up. By entertaining her curiously-timed claims, Republicans rewarded Sen. Feinstein for deliberately withholding evidence until a politically opportune time. Now, Republicans have set up a committee hearing to actually hear Ford out.

This plays right into the Democrats’ hands. And it just became obvious with the statement Feinstein’s office just released, which gives the entire game away.

This isn’t Feinstein’s first act of trickery. Earlier this week, she refused to attend a phone call with Kavanaugh that was held by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. That was the first sign that Democrats aren’t actually serious about hearing from Ford.

Russia reveals the MH17 ‘smoking gun’

The “breakthrough” seems to have come from a JIT briefing last May, which produced fragments of the engine and nozzle of the 9M38 missile, launched by a Buk missile system, which downed MH17. According to Parshin: “Once we had the nozzle and engine numbers, we were able to find out the missile’s number.”

So now we know, via declassified files, that the engine of the missile 9D131 allegedly had the serial number 8869032. And a “passport” for the nozzle cluster 9D13105000 carried the number 8-30-113. The actual missile number was 886847349, they said.

The Defense Ministry established that numbers for the components of the 9M38 missile and the number of units noted in the technical documentation stored at the Dolgoprudny Research and Production Enterprise, outside Moscow, are the same.

Civil War II Is Hot But For The Surface-To-Surface Missiles

I have been following the latest outrage of the last three days. Apparently, Brett Kavanaugh pulled a girls ponytail at the playground when he was 9 or something to that effect, and everyone on the left is losing their minds. I’m not going to analyze the myriad of ways that this accusation makes no sense (notably timing, inconsistencies, age of people involved, and other things that came up).

My point is different in nature and the observation is more general.

The United States is in a civil war in every way short of using arms. The institutions won’t save us any more because they no longer mean anything. There are two sides which are equally unchangeable in their minds. Both sides are not driven by the same principles (you can call it a fight between “idealism” vs “realism” to give them both credit but that is giving the one side a little too much credit I guess) but in principle both sides are largely unmoved in their beliefs and direction.

US-China trade war heats up as Beijing hits back at US President Donald Trump’s new tariffs

China has hit back at fresh US tariffs on Chinese goods, announcing its own additional duties on US$60 billion worth of American imports as the trade war escalates between the world’s two biggest economies.

The new tariffs – of 5 per cent and 10 per cent – will come into effect on September 24, the same day as the US’ new duties, the Chinese Ministry of Finance said in a statement on Tuesday.

Beijing’s retaliation came after US President Donald Trump announced that the US will start to charge 10 per cent tariffs on US$200 billion worth of Chinese products from next Monday, significantly widening the scope of a trade war. These tariffs will then rise to 25 per cent on January 1.

‘NYT’ story on Seth Klarman abandoning GOP leaves out his prominent role in Israel lobby

Weiss identifies Klarman as “hawkish, socially liberal, fiscally conservative.” His and his wife’s family foundation focuses on “pro-democracy initiatives, including supporting organizations that protect journalists, combat bigotry and defend L.G.B.T. rights.”

That’s not the whole story. Israel is never mentioned in the article, but Israel is clearly at the heart of Klarman’s giving. Klarman started a newspaper in Israel, the Times of Israel, and has given to a host of neoconservative Israel lobby organizations, including Trump’s favorite thinktank, the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, the Israel Project, Middle East Forum, WINEP and the David Project, which tried to block construction of mosques in Klarman’s city, Boston.

Klarman is plainly ideological. He also funds CAMERA, a rightwing media outfit that puts out regular critiques of the New York Times. Klarman gave more than $1.5 million to CAMERA through that foundation that works to “protect journalists.”

The Israel-Palestine mask is off. It may never be reworn with the same naivety

The mask is off. The US as an extremely biased arbiter in the Israel-Palestinian conflict has fully revealed itself.

In the ignoble Deal of the Century, Palestinians are told – your national aspirations are nothing. Right of return, refugee status, East Jerusalem as a capital and UNWRA aid from the US are gone. So is your mission in Washington. If you complain of our, or Israel’s, behavior to the International Criminal Court, the court itself will be sanctioned and its members prosecuted should they enter the United States.

When this ‘peacemaker’ strips Palestinians of negotiating bargaining chips, it’s no surprise that Palestinian National Authority President Mahmoud Abbas refuses to sit at the table. The table is rigged to protect the bicycle thief; the victim cannot allude to getting their bike back nor even to the fact that it was stolen.

Ehud Barak inciting to kill Netanyahu, Likud claims

Former Israeli prime minister and defence minister, Ehud Barak was accused by the Israeli Likud of inciting to kill current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported on Sunday.

Barak accused Netanyahu of leading Israel “to destruction through an extreme, messianic and racist minority,” calling for the Israelis to defend their country.

He compared Netanyahu’s government, Haaretz said, “to the era of the rule of Romanian Communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, who was executed along with his wife in 1989.”

During a meeting in Tel Aviv, Barak added: “The moral collapse of Netanyahu has begotten laws whose only purpose is to help the government escape the corruption, bribery and breach of trust affairs it is suspected in.”

Evidence Is No Longer A Western Value

Russia Provides Conclusive Proof That Ukraine Downed Malaysia Airlines MH17

Of course, proof, facts, evidence are no longer of any consequence in the Western World. Transparently false accusations can be leveled without any evidence provided, and the lie becomes a fact. “Russiagate” is a perfect example.

Feminist students in Western universities, who find themselves “offended” by scientific fact, denounce scientists for speaking truth that contradicts feminist ideology, and the university administrations, obedient to feminish ideology, haul the scientists before hearings ideologically prepared to declare the scientist, if male, a misogynist. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/09/17/feminist-ideology-is-incon...

Inside Israel’s new Iran strategy

In a rare admission, Israel has broken its “no-comment” policy on air strikes to confirm that it has carried out over 200 attacks against Iranian targets in Syria over the last two years. In addition to those attacks, a new report claims that Israel has secretly armed and funded at least 12 Syrian rebel groups in southern Syria since 2013. Israel reportedly stopped its transfer of weapons and money in July, after the Bashar al-Assad regime regained control of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

The major purpose of Israel’s “Operation Good Neighbor,” which reportedly included humanitarian aid to Syrian rebels, was to prevent Iran-affiliated forces from entrenching their position near Israeli borders. More important, however, is the fact that Israel has intensified and broadened its air campaign inside Syria in recent months to target Iranian positions.

All of these anti-Semitism allegations continue to sideline Palestinian suffering

As the row over what constitutes anti-Semitism rages in Britain, the very real fear that freedom of speech is being threatened has already been realised in America, according to one Jewish campaign group. At the heart of the argument is a decision by the Trump administration to change how the Education Department investigates allegations that Jewish students face discrimination; not surprisingly, the Trump team has backed an approach that is endorsed by pro-Israel groups.

The policy change has already prompted the reinvestigation of an event held seven years ago, involving Holocaust and Nakba survivors, which was deemed to be anti-Semitic because it included criticism of the Israeli government. The reopening of the 2011 case, dismissed under the Obama administration, means that anyone who supports Palestinian human rights is potentially going to be regarded as an anti-Semite, says Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP).

Downed Il-20 Was on Recon Mission Over Idlib De-Escalation Zone – Russian MoD

The Russian Hmeymim airbase had lost contact with the crew of the Russian Il-20 military aircraft late on Monday during the attack of four Israeli F-16 aircraft on Syrian targets in the province of Latakia.

"Our reconnaissance Il-20 aircraft with a crew of 15 on board was carrying out a reconnaissance mission over the Idlib de-escalation zone to determine the locations of storage and collection of unmanned aerial vehicles that fly out of the zone and strike different areas of Syria," Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated at a meeting with senior military commanders.

Israeli F-16 jets attacked Syria under the cover of the Russian Il-20, assuming that the Syrian air defense forces would not act in this direction, Shoigu said.

Ex-Israeli PM Ehud Barak Compares Netanyahu to Romanian Dictator Ceausescu

Former Israeli prime minister Ehud Barak has censured his successor Benjamin Netanyahu for passing corrupt legislation, comparing him to Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, who was overthrown and killed in 1989.

“The moral collapse of Netanyahu has begotten laws whose only purpose is to help the government escape the corruption, bribery and breach of trust affairs it is suspected in,” Barak said at a speech in Tel Aviv, Sunday.

Barak hinted that Netanyahu would face the same fate of Ceausescu, who ruled over Romania with an iron grip, from 1965 until he was overthrown after mass protests against him. He was executed in the same year, along with his wife Elena.

German domestic spy chief removed, set to take up Interior Ministry post amid migrant row

Hans-Georg Maassen has been removed as the head of Germany's domestic intelligence agency and will become a senior official in the interior ministry. That's after he questioned videos of far-right violence in Chemnitz.

The move is being seen as a compromise between the Social Democrats, who had demanded Maasen's removal, and conservative Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.

It comes after he cast doubt on the authenticity of a video showing far-right protesters chasing migrants after the fatal stabbing of a German man by migrants in the city of Chemnitz.

The Anne Frank Test

Given the title of the article, Goldberg inevitably turns to the holocaust with McCain: “He said that, in the post holocaust world, all civilized people, and the governments of all civilized nations, should be intolerant of leaders who commit verified acts of genocide… I told him then that he would most definitely pass the Anne Frank test…[which] is actually a single question: ‘Which non-Jewish friends would risk their lives to hide us should the Nazis ever return?’”

After some additional blather Goldberg enthuses that he was “…pretty sure [McCain would] kill Nazis to defend Anne Frank.” McCain smiled and responded “It would be an honor and a privilege.”

Disobedient Hungary: From the Soviet to the European Union

CNN recently discovered a paradox. How was it possible, they asked, that in 1989, Viktor Orban, at the time a Western-acclaimed liberal opposition leader, was calling for Soviet troops to leave Hungary, and now that he is Prime Minister, he is cozying up to Vladimir Putin?

For the same reason, dummy.

Orban wanted his country to be independent then, and he wants it to be independent now.

In 1989, Hungary was a satellite of the Soviet Union. Whatever Hungarians wanted, they had to follow directives from Moscow and adhere to Soviet communist ideology.

Today, Hungary is ordered to follow directives from Brussels and adhere to the EU ideology, a k a “our common values”.

Leaked Clips from Censored Documentary on Israel Lobby Reveal Attacks on US Activists

Sep 18 09:12


North and West Africa have seen intense U.S. military engagement over the last decade. America has, as The Intercept reported earlier this year, conducted approximately 550 drone strikes in Libya since 2011 — more than in Somalia, Yemen, or Pakistan. In July, Politico disclosed that for at least five years, Green Berets, Navy SEALs, and other commandos — operating under a little-understood budgetary authority known as Section 127e — have been involved in reconnaissance and “direct action” combat raids with local forces in Cameroon, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, and Tunisia. Between 2015 and 2017, there were also at least 10 previously unreported attacks on American troops in West Africa, the New York Times revealed in March. Last October, four U.S. troops were killed in an ISIS ambush in Niger. Two months later, Green Berets fighting alongside local forces in that same country reportedly killed 11 ISIS militants.

Rubio asks Justice Department to investigate John Kerry's meeting with Iran

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has asked the Department of Justice to investigate whether former Secretary of State John Kerry broke the law by meeting with the Iranian foreign minister after President Trump took office.

Rubio said in a Tuesday letter to the department that the “American people deserve to know what U.S. laws are enforced regardless of any individual’s past position.”

The Florida senator said the Justice Department should decide whether the former Obama official violated the Logan Act, a more than 200-year-old law that prohibits private citizens from acting on behalf of the U.S. in negotiations with foreign governments without authorization, or the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a law requiring people or companies acting on behalf of a foreign entity to disclose their work to the U.S. government.

Grassley suggests last-minute Kavanaugh hearing could be canceled if accuser doesn’t accept invite

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Tuesday raised the possibility that next week’s high-stakes open hearing to examine the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh could be canceled if the accuser doesn’t accept the committee’s invitation.

Grassley, R-Iowa, scheduled a hearing for Monday for Kavanaugh and accuser Christine Blasey Ford to answer questions from senators about the allegation. But Grassley said during a Tuesday radio interview that his office has reached out several times to Ford and her attorneys to discuss her allegation, but has heard nothing back.

First-grade textbook reads like ‘propaganda’ for pro-gay gubernatorial candidate: conservative group

A California conservative group said a first-grade textbook still in its pilot stage reads like political “propaganda” for a Democratic gubernatorial candidate over his support for gay rights.

“My World Interactive” includes a section about Gavin Newsom — formerly San Francisco’s mayor and now the state’s lieutenant governor — calling him a “champion for people’s rights” and noting he said “people could marry who they choose. Sometimes, Gavin helped marry people. Some marriages were not between a man and a woman. He made sure that people’s rights were respected,” KOVR-TV reported.

Russia Threatens "Adequate Response" Against Israel For Downed Plane

Update 4: The Russian Ministry of Defense cleared up the confusion surrounding the overnight downing of a Russian Ilyushin-20 reconnaissance plane on Tuesday when a spokesman revealed that Israel was indeed responsible for the attack, which resulted in the deaths of 15 Russian servicemen.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the plane was accidentally brought down by an aging Syrian S-200 defense system after Russia had scrambled its jets to respond to an attack by four Israeli F-16s on Syrian government targets. Israeli notified Russia of its attack over a shared hotline less than a minute before beginning the strike, giving the Kremlin little time to respond.

"As a result of the Israeli military’s irresponsible actions 15 Russian servicemen died," said Defense Ministry Spokesman Gen. Igor Konashenkov.

Israel has carried out roughly 200 strikes in Syria over the past year and a half as it pushes back against Tehran's growing presence in the war-torn battle zone.

UK PM vows to defend Jews and Israel, in dig at Labour's Corbyn

UK Prime Minister Theresa May pledged on Monday to protect British Jewish identity and Israel's right to defend itself, in an attack on opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn in the run-up to his Labour Party conference next weekend.

May told a United Jewish Israel Appeal dinner she was "sickened" by the idea that some Jews questioned whether Britain was a safe place to raise their children.

Labour has been angrily divided this year over pockets of anti-Semitism which Corbyn himself has acknowledged. Critics suggest he should step down for failing to tackle the issue.

Russia ‘reserves right to respond’ after saying Israel’s actions led to downing of Il-20 by Syria

The Israeli Air Force launched their surprise night attack on Latakia in a way that put the Russian plane in harm’s way, the Russian Ministry of Defense said in a statement. The ministry said Israel must have known that they were setting up the Russian plane to be hit by a Syrian counterattack, but failed to either change their approach to targets in Syria or give Moscow enough time to move the Il-20 to safety.

‘You are to blame for downing of Il-20 and death of its crew,’ Russia tells Israel

Russia has formally complained to Israel about its air raid on Monday, which led to the downing of a Russian Il-20 plane off the Syrian coast. Moscow has laid the blame for the crew’s deaths “squarely on the Israeli side.”

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu spoke to his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman on the phone about the downing of the Russian Il-20 plane on Monday night. He relayed Moscow’s position on the incident, blaming the Israeli military for setting up the Russian plane to be shot down by Syrian air defenses, which were responding to an Israeli air raid, an official statement from the Russian military said.

Shoigu reiterated that Israel failed to notify Russia of the impending attack in a way that would have given its military an opportunity to move the Il-20 out of harm’s way. Instead, the warning came just one minute before the Israeli F-16 fighter jets launched their attack.

Suspect shoots cop, but good Samaritan with concealed carry license is in right place at right time

An unidentified good Samaritan may very well have saved a police officer’s life by being in the right place at the right time with a concealed carry permit and a firearm.
What are the details?
According to WBBM-TV, the incident occurred Thursday when a suspect fired three shots on a Cicero, Illinois, police officer.
A good Samaritan — who wished to remain anonymous — stepped in and was able to return fire at the suspect. According to the Chicago Tribune, the good Samaritan did not hit the suspect. Despite not making contact, the man likely saved the officer’s life by simply distracting the suspect.
The 42-year-old man spoke with WBBM’s Mai Martinez, to whom he told the harrowing story.
The man said that he was stopped at a red light when he noticed that a police officer was attempting to stop a black Mercedes-Benz sedan. It all unfolded very fast — and the next thing he saw was the suspect exiting the car and firing off several rounds at Cicero Police Officer Luis Duarte.

Syria downed Russia's plane because Israeli F-16s used it as cover — Russian top brass

A Russian military Ilyushin-20 aircraft was shot down by Syria’s air defense over the Mediterranean Sea because Israel’s F-16 fighters used it as cover, Russian Defense Ministry Spokesman Igor Konashenkov told the media on Tuesday.

"By using the Russian plane as cover the Israeli air pilots made it vulnerable to Syrian air defense fire. As a result, the Ilyushin-20, its reflective surface being far greater than that of the F-16, was downed by a missile launched with the S-200 system," Konashenkov said.

Konashenkov said four F-16s from the Israeli Air Force carried out a strike with guided air missles against Syrian facilities in the area of Latakia at about 22:00 on September 17. The fighters approached the target from the Mediterranean at a low altitude.

The Israeli planes deliberately created a dangerous situation for surface ships and aircraft in that area, he stated.

Man waves pro-police flag outside Arkansas Nike store. They respond by calling law enforcement.

Arkansas resident Jimmie Cavin is an ardent supporter of law enforcement and first responders. But he unfortunately found himself on the wrong side of police last week after he had law enforcement called on him for protesting in support of police.
What happened?
Last Thursday, Cavin posted up outside a Nike store at a mall in west Little Rock. He sat on the tailgate of his truck and waved a black flag adorned with a blue strip, a universal pro-police symbol.
“My priority is supporting law enforcement, firefighters and paramedics,” Cavin told KLRT-TV.
He explained that about 15 minutes into his protest, a Little Rock police officer approached him. The officer was reportedly called in response to a “disturbance,” despite the fact that he didn’t approach or talk to a single shopper.
