His wife, VDL News reported, received a call asking her to pay $2 million for his release.

The site pointed out that “Akhras was kidnapped last Thursday on the high road – Chtoura, his car was found parked in Aley, while he was on his way from Damascus.”

Murhaf is the son of Syrian businessman Tarif Akhras, Asma Al-Assad’s uncle.

Saudi jets helping Israel strike pro-Iran militias on Syria-Iraq border

September 19, 2019 - Saudi fighter jets joined Israeli ones in a recent campaign to strike pro-Iran Shia militias on the Syria-Iraq border, an unnamed western source told the Independent newspaper’s Arabic site.

“Saudi fighter jets have been spotted along with other fighter jets that have attacked facilities and positions belonging to Iranian militias,” the source told Independent Arabia, referring to the airstrikes on the Iranian-backed militias in the Albukamal area of eastern Syria on Monday night. There were reportedly four airstrikes that night, in which five to 16 Iraqi militants were killed.

It is believed that the attacks conducted by Saudi and Israeli jets targeted positions belonging to the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and according to the source, Iran was set to use the sites to hit other targets following the attack on the Saudi Aramco oil facilities on Saturday.

The source added that the Global Coalition Against Daesh had begun targeting other groups including the Quds Force and others which have ties with Iran in the Levant. Saudi sources later denied the claims made by the Western source.

US spy plane operated drones that attacked Hmeymim Base in Syria: Russia

2019-09-20 - The drones that attacked Russia’s Hmeymim airbase in Syria were operated from the US Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Colonel General Alexander Fomin said at a plenary session of the Beijing Xiangshan Forum on security on Thursday.

“Thirteen drones moved according to common combat battle deployment, operated by a single crew. During all this time the American Poseidon-8 reconnaissance plane patrolled the Mediterranean Sea area for eight hours,” he noted.

When the drones met with the electronic countermeasures of the Russian systems, they switched to a manual guidance mode, he said. “Manual guidance is carried out not by some villagers, but by the Poseidon-8, which has modern equipment. It undertook manual control,” the deputy defense minister noted.

“When these 13 drones faced our electronic warfare screen, they moved away to some distance, received the corresponding orders and began to be operated out of space and receiving help in finding the so-called holes through which they started penetrating. Then they were destroyed,” Fomin reported.

“This should be stopped as well: in order to avoid fighting with the high-technology weapons of terrorists and highly-equipped terrorists it is necessary to stop supplying them with equipment,” the deputy defense minister concluded.

The Russian Defense Ministry earlier said that on January 6 militants in Syria first massively used drones in the attack on the Russian Hmeymim airbase and the Russian naval base in Tartus.

The attack was successfully repelled: seven drones were downed, and control over six drones was gained through electronic warfare systems. The Russian Defense Ministry stressed that the solutions used by the militants could be received only from a technologically advanced country and warned about the danger of repeating such attacks in any country of the world.

Turkey continues to drift out of NATO's orbit...
That was an interesting exchange between the leaders and their delegations. Putin highlights fixing war torn infrastructures (hospital, schools, water and sewage systems etc.) Personalty, I would send the bill to Israel, and they can hit up the UK and the US for assistance.

Putin also mentioned returning Syrian refuges (350,000 +/-) and in-country returning citizens to their towns. Think he said 1.2 million or so displaced were returning.

Thanks for keeping up with all those links, sToRmR1dR.
