Jihadists reclaim some lost ground in west Aleppo after downing Syrian chopper

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels have retaken a number of points in western Aleppo this afternoon, following the downing of a Syrian military chopper near the town of Uram Al-Kubri. According to reports from west Aleppo, the jihadist rebels have retaken Talat Qurtaba and Abu Salim after a swift counter-offensive near the the strategic Regiment 46 Base. The reports said the Syrian Army never fully secured these areas prior to the jihadist counter-offensive, which ultimately led to their withdraw from these points earlier this afternoon. Similar to their attack on Nayrab this week, the jihadists and their Turkish-backed allies shot down a Syrian military chopper in western Aleppo before launching this new operation. It is not clear where the militants got their anti-aircraft missile from, but according to some Syrian activists, they were likely supplied by the Turkish Armed Forces.

Nevada volunteers have reportedly received 'few details' about the new 'caucus calculator'

Will the Nevada Democratic caucuses be able to avoid the catastrophe of Iowa? That's the question on everyone's mind eight days out, with early voting set to begin on Saturday. Although Nevada Democrats were originally set to use apps by the same company behind the disastrous Iowa one, CNN reports they'll now use a new tool that they've been "scrambling to promote": a "caucus calculator." Precinct chairs are to use this tool on iPads to "work out viability and delegate results during the caucuses by adding together caucus results and early vote data," CNN writes, although Nevada Democrats said Thursday "caucuses can operate without this calculator." But on Friday, CNN reported that caucus workers and 2020 campaigns are getting "worried" that Nevada Democrats haven't provided many details about how the reporting process will work. "Caucus volunteers have yet to get their hands on the calculator even though they're the ones expected to use it on caucus day, and they have been given few details about it," according…

Trump has already tweeted about Barr's interview complaining about his tweets

President Trump has a message for Attorney General William Barr: I will never log off. Barr in a rare rebuke of Trump on Thursday criticized the president's tweets about Department of Justice cases in an interview with ABC News, begging him to knock them off because they're making his job difficult.

This came amid an ongoing controversy over the Department of Justice reversing its sentencing recommendation for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone after Trump angrily tweeted about it. So what was Trump's response to Barr begging him to stop it with the DOJ-related tweets? Another DOJ-related tweet, of course.

AP Explains: Why Syria's M5 is Assad's highway to victory

BEIRUT (AP) — It is arguably one of the most coveted prizes in Syria’s civil war, and after eight years of fighting, Syrian President Bashar Assad has got it back.The Damascus-Aleppo highway, or the M5, is known to Syrians simply as the “International Road.” Cutting through Syria's major cities, the motorway is key to who controls the country.Assad gradually lost control over the M5 from 2012, when various rebel groups fighting to topple him began seizing parts of the country.Protests against his family's rule had erupted the year before amid a wave of uprisings in the Arab world. This soon turned into a civil war, following a brutal government crackdown on dissent and the intervention of foreign powers in th

Erdogan’s visit to Islamabad. Economic cooperation will intensify

By Seymur Mammadov The official visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Pakistan will be another milestone in further strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries in all areas. The two countries have always maintained and continue to maintain fraternal relations and in difficult times stand shoulder to shoulder with each other both in the fight against terrorism and at the international level, especially with regard to Ankara’s principled, unchanging position on the Kashmir issue. At the same time, Pakistan has always supported Turkey’s position on the Cyprus issue. Today, Turkey and Pakistan pursue an independent foreign policy and bear a heavy burden, which do not want to notice in the West. Both countries have similar experience in conducting a migration policy, have a tolerant policy towards their neighbors, and in Europe the concept of “multiculturalism” has become problematic and causes more and more irritation. From the 1980s to today, Pakistan has accepted up to 3.5 million Afghan…

BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The situation in northwestern Syria is getting worse by the day for the militant forces, as they now find themselves on the verge of losing their last supply line between Idlib and Aleppo. READ ALSO: Russian Military Announces Aleppo-Damascus Highway is Fully Under Syrian Army Control According to a Syrian military source in the provincial capital of Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army is approaching the strategic town of Al-Atareb, which is located along the main road between Aleppo and Reyhanli (Turkish city). This approach is imperative because Al-Atareb is one of the last towns along the roadway leading to the Kafr Lousen Crossing at the Turkish border. Should the Syrian Army capture Al-Atareb and push Sarmada, the entire militant-held pocket in northwestern Syria will be split in two, with Aleppo and Idlib only being accessible from Turkish territories.

At one stage, the original 30-plus room Brancepeth station was the largest in the district. Beetham lives on a nearby farm and runs a beef and sheep business over the two properties. This is hilly land - baked dry and brown in the summer, but cold and wet in the winter. It is sandstone country, with easily eroded hillsides stretching down to a river - the Wainuiora - that runs along the valley. The family has been planting trees for years to keep the land from slipping.

House Republicans say stealing polling data through open blinds is kosher. Democrats say it's creepy.

The campaign organizations for House Democrats and Republicans — the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) — agree on the facts of what happened Wednesday night, Politico reported Friday morning: NRCC staffers walked across the street to the DCCC's headquarters to stake out some Democratic candidates, saw the blinds open on a DCCC polling meeting, and snapped some photos, nabbing pricy and potentially useful proprietary polling data on races Democrats are focusing on in November. Republicans think they hit the jackpot, Democrats found the tactics "totally out of bounds, and downright creepy," Politico reports. "The NRCC and DCCC have disagreed on where to draw the line when it comes to opposition research. The Republican committee, for example, has declined to sign an agreement to not use hacked information in its campaigns." Still, the DCCC didn't exactly take the high road. "When you have no ideas or accomplishments to run on, you creep in…

Iran holds commemoration ceremony on 40th day since Qassem Soleimani’s death

Hundreds of people attended a commemoration ceremony for the 40th day since the death of Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani in Tehran on Thursday. Footage shows people chanting against the US, the UK and Israel as Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commander Hossein Salami gave a speech. Salami warned Israel and the US that Iran would “strike” them if they made a “wrong step” in the region. “The final slap is on the way. This path continues until the day that the Islamic nation expels the last American soldier from the Islamic land and puts the Zionist regime on the path of the definite decline.” “The US’s policies have gradually been revealed nowadays and these policies do not work anymore,” said Tehran resident Mohamad Abedian. “The US should also know that, by the assassination of Gen. Soleimani, it was proven again that the martyrdom of the Soleimani will strengthen the power which brings the US to its knees.” Tensions between the United States and Iran have risen amid the killing of Soleimani, who was…

Biden, the former vice president, said on ABC's “The View” that “I don't think you can buy an election," while Warren took Bloomberg to task for his 2008 comments that ending redlining, a discriminatory housing practice, helped trigger the economic meltdown.

Giuliani claims he can 'prove' a 'Democratic scam' in Ukraine with iPad full of 'reports' he never actually shares

Rudy Giuliani has a fresh crop of claims about Democrats' dealings in Ukraine — an iPad full of "proof" he won't let anyone else see. The former New York City mayor made a Fox Business appearance on Thursday night to push any corruption in Ukraine on Democrats' shoulders. "They're going to be very surprised when they see the report that I have" apparently revealing an "unaccounted for" $5.3 billion in Ukraine aid during the Obama administration, Giuliani said, not exactly specifying who "they" are. That aid gap apparently explains "how all those oligarchs become oligarchs," Giuliani said, making some chomping noises and motions to imitate his interpretation of how money is laundered. Giuliani goes on to mention this mysterious report over and over, which apparently shows how "not just" the Bidens engaged in a "huge Democratic scam" in Ukraine. "That's why they're so crazy on the subject of Ukraine, and why they want to literally kill me," Giuliani said of Democrats, without any proof of this murderous plot. "I…
