(AUSTRIA) Terror Alert Report: Because when the authorities stopped a smuggler on a bus that was on its way to to their country with 17 immigrants, the Serbian-Austrian driver stated that a Syrian was traveling with a submachine gun in his luggage #AceNewsDesk report

#AceDailyNews says a Syrian refugee migrant had machine gun in his luggage, he is now on the run and could be planning an attack after being found with a submachine gun in his luggage,” translated from “The entry of illegals to Austria continues unchecked despite allegedly improved border protection” Plante er ein Attentat? ‘Geflüchteter’ Syrer hat Maschinenpistole im Gepäck,” Unzensuriert, July 31, 2021 (thanks to Medforth):

Terror alert on the eastern border: However, there was no trace of the “refugee.” When the van was stopped by the Hungarian police, the strangers hiding in the hold jumped out and fled in all directions. Whether the man with the gun is trying to cross a green border into Austria can only be speculated. Everything is possible because the smuggler bus was stopped just a few kilometers from the eastern border in the Hungarian district of Vas….

Above all in the west of the Mödling district in Lower Austria, there have been numerous attacks by smugglers and immigrants in recent months – mostly along the A21, as the Mödling FPÖ district party chairman Christoph Luisser told Unzensuriert: The reason for his statement at the time was an accident in a smuggler car in Achau, Mödling district, which hit another car. Then the Hungarian driver ran away. Six Syrians who were on board the car immediately applied for asylum.

Trafficker flees into the forest

Last Thursday, another case in Lower Austria became known. According to the Kronen Zeitung newspaper, there was an attack by the police in Eichkogel after a smuggler dropped off 16 “refugees.” The trafficker jumped out of the vehicle and ran away – nor did he stop when the police fired warning shots. The man was hiding in the forest and is still on the run.

KOBANI: ‘ ISLAMIC STATE MILITANTS TAKE CONTROL OF AIR-DROP ZONE ‘

#AceNewsServices – KOBANI – October 23 – Islamic State militants battling for control of the Syrian border city of Kobani ramped up their offensive Thursday, re-taking ground west of the city where the U.S. made a crucial supply drop to Kurdish forces on Monday.

ISIS takes control of air-drop zone outside Kobani

A Fox News crew in the area has been told that ISIS has advanced on three different fronts in the center of Kobani against Kurdish defenders. There is now little open land around the city that the Kurds control, making future airdrops difficult.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday that a unit of 200 Kurdish Peshmerga forces from Iraq will be coming to Kobani to help in the fight against ISIS, but there is no word on when the troops will arrive.

They are reported to bring heavy weaponry and artillery that is sorely needed to push back the militant advances.

An Associated Press journalist on the Turkish side of the border said heavy machine gunfire could be heard from Kobani, which is also known as Ayn Arab, on Thursday.

“The fighting has been ongoing since last night on the eastern and southern fronts. It is some of the longest clashes in Kobani,” said Kurdish activist Farhad Shami by telephone from the town.

“The fighting usually only takes place at night.”

UNITED STATES: ‘ STATE DEPARTMENT MET WITH SYRIAN KURDISH GROUP LAST WEEK OVER AIR-STRIKES ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – October 17 – The US State Department met directly with a Syrian Kurdish group last week in France, in conversations that led to increased American air-strikes against Islamic State militants in Kobani, Reuters reports.

A spokesman for the Kurds said their troops on the ground fed the US military the coordinates of militants in the town, where intense fighting has broken out.

“We have for some time had conversations through intermediaries with the PYD [the Kurdish Democratic Union Party].

We have engaged over the course of just last weekend with the PYD,” said State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

TURKEY: ‘ Denial by Ankara Allowing Washington to Use its Bases Leads to Speculation ‘

#AceWorldNews – TURKEY (Ankara) – October 13 – Ankara has denied allowing Washington to use its bases against Islamic State militants, AFP said.

There is no new agreement with the US about Incirlik, a Turkish government official said of an air base in southern Turkey that the US wants to use to launch air strikes.

“Negotiations are continuing” based on Turkish conditions previously laid out, the source added.

US officials had earlier said Turkey would also host training for “moderate” Syrian rebels.

KOBANI: ‘ Islamic Forces Control Forty Percent of Syrian Town’

#AceWorldNews – KOBANI – October 10 – Islamic State forces have made new gains in Kobani, now controlling about 40 percent of the Syrian town of Kobani on the Turkish border and might well capture it, Deputy US National Security Adviser Tony Blinken has said.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen because again in the absence of any ground force there, it is going to be difficult just through air power to prevent ISIL (IS) from potentially taking over the town,”Blinken told reporters at a briefing in London on Friday.

This information is also confirmed by the the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

“They have taken at least 40 percent (of the town),” the head of the monitoring group, Rami Abdulrahman, said by telephone as reported by Reuters.

Islamic State fighters were now in almost complete control of the “security quarter,” which is home to the administrative buildings used by the local government, he said.

The IS militants have seized control over some of the eastern areas of the town and smaller areas in the south of Kobani, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

They have seized the Kurd headquarters also, a monitoring group said.

“They are trying to advance on the crossing from the east … but the YPG [fighters] are resisting them,”Ocalan Iso, the deputy head of the Kurdish forces defending Kobani, told Reuters.

SYRIA: ‘ Franciscan Priest and 20 Christians Kidnapped by Al-Qaeda Near Turkish Border ‘

#AceNewsServices – SYRIA – October 08 – A Franciscan priest and 20 other Christians have been kidnapped by Al-Qaeda-linked militants in a Syrian village near the border with Turkey, the Franciscan mission to the Holy Land said Tuesday.

The Custody of the Holy Land said it was not able to say where Fr Hanna and his parishioners were now

The Custody of the Holy Land said it was not able to say where Fr Hanna and his parishioners were now

“On the night of Oct. 5, Father Hanna Jallouf of the Custody of the Holy Land, parish priest at Qunyeh, Syria, was taken by some brigades linked to the Nusra Front,” AFP quoted a statement from the Custody of the Holy Land as saying.

Following their capture, an unspecified number of Franciscan nuns had taken refuge with the villagers, the statement said.

Catholic news agency Fides, quoting Bishop Georges Abou Khazen, the Apostolic Vicar of Aleppo in Syria, said around 20 Christians were taken along with the priest, Reuters reported. 

“Among the kidnapped are young people, both boys and girls,” he was quoted as saying.

Qunyeh is a village of several 100 people in the Syrian province of Idlib and lies some 8 kilometers from the Turkish border.

Franciscan official Father Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Custody of the Holy Land, confirmed the kidnapping of the 62-year-old priest and 20 villagers to AFP.

“They are accusing them of being collaborators” with the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Pizzaballa told AFP in Jerusalem, expressing deep concern over the fate of the priest, a Syrian who has worked in Qunyeh for 12 years after a posting in the Jordanian capital, Amman.

“We don’t know what to do.

We don’t know with whom to talk, we’re totally unable to get in touch with anyone,” added Pizzaballa, the guardian of the Catholic Church’s sites in the Holy Land.

AFP quoted a source linked to the Franciscan Order in Aleppo as saying that Nusra Front rebels had forced their way into the convent and “looted everything.”

The source said Nusra Front rebels were “angry with Father Hanna because he refused to give them some of the olives harvested from trees on the convent’s land.”

UNITED STATES: ‘ GITMO Videos Must be Released to Public Judge Rules Over Ruling Obama Administration ‘

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES – October 04 – Video footage of American officials force feeding inmates at the Guantanamo Bay prison complex in Cuba cannot be kept secret and must be released to the public, a federal judge ruled on Friday.

READ MORE: US wants Guantanamo force-feeding hearing to stay secret

Specifically, US District Court Judge Gladys Kessler said the US government must release 28 videos that show hunger-striking inmate Abu Wa’el Dhiab – a Syrian man who has been in custody since 2002 – being removed from his cell against his will and fed via a tube that goes through his nose and into his stomach.

The tapes will need to undergo some changes before they are released, however, in order to protect the identities of those carrying out the procedure. Faces and names on uniforms, for example, will be blurred, and other modifications may be applied to obscure voices or block out writing.

The ruling comes just one day after the same judge rejected the Obama administration’s request to keep the public from having access to an upcoming hearing related to the force feeding of an inmate on a hunger strike.

“We are very gratified by this decision, which will enable the American people to see with their own eyes the sorts of abuses that are being heaped on these peacefully hunger-striking detainees,”Dhiab’s lawyer, Jon Eisenberg, told AP.

“Once the truth is fully brought to light, we believe these terrible practices will come to an end,” he added.

‘ ISIS Threatens Vladimir Putin in Video ‘

#AceNewsServices (Opinion) – September 21 – Russia, which has criticized U.S. plans to launch strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Syria, could soon become a victim of the militant group, whose members include extremists from Chechnya.

The Soufan Group, a New York-based intelligence firm, estimated in June that some 200 Chechen fighters were involved in the Syrian conflict.

Earlier this month, ISIS jihadists released a video threatening Russia shortly after they captured an air base in Raqqa, eastern Syria, and seized Russian-made fighter jets. 

In the video, a militant said: “This message is addressed to you, oh Vladimir Putin. These are your aircraft which you sent to [Syrian President] Bashar [al-Assad], and with the help of Allah we’ll send them back to you. Remember this. And with the permission of Allah, we’ll liberate Chechnya and all the Caucasus.”

Marvin Kalb, a senior adviser to the Washington-based Pulitzer Center, told Al Arabiya News: “Putin worries constantly about local insurgents getting field training in Syria, or now in ISIS, and then returning to Russia to implement their new skills.

“Putin doesn’t want them back in Russia, and this is a chronic nightmare for him.”

Alex Melikishvili, a senior analyst at U.S.-based research giant IHS, said it is “entirely conceivable” that returning ISIS fighters would wage war against Russia, just as Chechen insurgents have done over the last two decades.

The longer it takes to destroy ISIS, the higher the likelihood that some of its battle-hardened militants will make their way  to the North Caucasus,” Melikishvili told Al Arabiya News.

WASHINGTON: ‘ Congress Backs Obama Training, Arming and Equipping Syrian Rebels ‘

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – September 19 – Legislation requested by President Barack Obama authorizing the military to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels fighting Islamic State militants in the Middle East is headed for his signature after a sweeping Senate vote.

The bipartisan 78-22 tally Thursday blended support from Obama’s close Democratic allies and some of his fiercest GOP critics, including top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

It put leading contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination on opposite sides. Some of Obama’s liberal allies defected.

#AceWorldNews – SYRIA (Hama) – September 12 – Syrian government troops have captured the town of Halfaya in central Hama province that has changed hands several times during the war, AP said, citing the military and activists.

WASHINGTON: ‘ House Republicans Split Over Authority to Arm and Train Syrian Rebels ‘

WASHINGTON: ‘ President Obama Seeks to Expand Title 10 Authority Governing Military Powers ‘

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – September 11 – Legislation to prevent a government shut-down hit a wall Wednesday, as lawmakers splintered over whether to include a White House request for new authority to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels the Hill reported. 

The White House is pushing Congress for authority to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels as part of a stopgap spending bill lawmakers hope to pass this week.

The president is seeking an expansion of the administration’s Title 10 authority — part of the U.S. code that governs military powers. The additional Title 10 authority would authorize the White House to train and advise the Syrian rebels — not merely equip them, as has been happening already. The legislation could also enable the U.S. to accept funding from foreign governments to bolster the Syrian opposition.

The official declined to say whether the president believed he could move ahead on those fronts without explicit congressional authorization.

Even though President Obama told congressional leaders on Tuesday he won’t need their authorization to expand his military campaign against Islamic State terrorists.

Obama offered the assurance at a private White House meeting one day before a prime-time address he’s scheduled to give to the nation.

` Moscow Concerned Over US Administration Intention to Increase Military to Right Gunmen in Syrian Army ‘

#AceWorldNews – MOSCOW – May 30 – (Itar-Tass) – Moscow is concerned over the reports suggesting that the US administration intends to increase the provision of military aid to the “right” gunmen in the Syrian armed opposition, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

“The media reports that the US administration intends to increase the provision of military aid to the “right” gunmen in the ranks of the Syrian armed opposition cause serious concern,” the ministry said.

“At the same time, there are many publications about the recognition of the facts of supplies of military products to the opposition members, although not that long ago,

Washington referred only to the provision of non-lethal means to the opponents of Bashar Assad in aid.”

“We are certain that the implementation of such plans would result in the further escalation of the murderous conflict in Syria,” the ministry stressed.
