Julian, stop being a child. How silly. Blindly repeating either sides claims then only afterwards working out if they are true is not real Journalism, it's irresponsibility.

So far Russian forces captured a T-64BV, a BMP-2, and an MT-LB from Zolote. Feel free to explain how that is commensurate to 1000 troops, or is this once again deliberate doom posting for the clicks

We should all be glad that Zalmay Khalilzad doesn't have the opportunity to lie and fritter away Ukraine like he did the people of Afghanistan. 🤮

NEW: Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov had lunch on Thursday at Cafe Milano in Georgetown with former U.S. envoy for Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad. I was at a nearby table and overheard much of the conversation. What they said, via @playbookdc :

Not going to go super deep into messaging but tl;dlr: We are still here, we still have power, we salute our brothers in Africa, emphasise the Global brand (Unsurprising given the African frontier for IS, but MENA is still v important), etc. [END]

Next we have more fighters, which could be in NES, NW, etc. Very hard to tell. More AKM/S variants, AMD-65, etc. Not much to say here.

And finally 2x quite co-ordinated urban cells; perhaps Daraa or closer to Damascus area. First image shows Type 56-1, Type 3 AKS, and unclear handgun. Interesting "Gorka" suits. And the other, with cut down AKM pattern rifle, AK-74M w/ RPK-74 mag, AKS-74U, T56/AKM. Better kitted.

Next, we see fighters most definitely from Assad regime "controlled" badia (desert) territories; they have common AKM variants but also most interestingly a ZU-23-2 23mm autocannon technical, which are rarely seen. Oh, and M16A4 with Fortuna One 3S/63 TWS/external battery pack.

#Syria #Africa : ISIS released a video showing fighters across Syria congratulating other fighters in Africa, most notably Nigeria. A quick breakdown of the weapons we see: Firstly, we see a Zastava M92 Carbine with the main speak; somewhat similar to the AKS-74U, quite symbolic.

Anyone not noticing the sudden spate of deep strikes against targets inside occupied Ukraine and even Russia itself is missing something, I'll just say that 🥸

Why does the #Ukranian suicide drone strike on a Russian refinery this morning matter? a short🧵
