Updates From The Middle East: ISIS Retreat Reveals Terror Plots Against Europe, Syrian Troops Capture Aleppo Stronghold From Rebels,

Islamic State retreat 'reveals terror plots against Europe'

Intelligence of attack plots across Europe is being uncovered as Islamic State’s caliphate is beaten back, the top British officer in the military coalition fighting the extremists has disclosed.
A trove of information has already been found and the capture of the Iraqi city of Mosul is expected to deliver more on the plans, finances and members of Islamic State in Iraq and Levant (Isil).
The volume of intelligence being found is so large the coalition has set up a lab in the Gulf to plunder militants’ laptops, phones and drives for their secrets and then pass them to intelligence agencies.

The capture of the Syrian town of Manbij, which acted as a gateway for jihadists travelling into Turkey and on to Europe, was an intelligence breakthrough, he said. But he warned the militants would still be able to direct plots while they remained in their capital, Raqqa.

“For as long as Raqqa is sitting there, they can orchestrate external operations. So the sooner it’s liberated or the sooner Daesh are liberated from there, the better.”

Maj Gen Jones said: “I am absolutely certain that an extraordinary amount of intelligence will come out of Mosul. We have ramped up as a coalition our ability to gather and process all that intelligence, because it will be a labyrinth of intelligence and we need to get that into the hands of intelligence agencies.”

Syrian government forces have retaken “full control” of the rebel-held district of Masaken Hanano in northern battlefield city Aleppo, state media said on Saturday.

State television said “the armed forces retook full control” of the largest rebel district in the east of the city, and official news agency SANA said operations were now under way to clear it of mines and bombs.

"The armed forces retook full control of Masaken Hanano after having put an end to the presence of terrorists there,” the state broadcaster said, referring to the rebels fighting the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
SANA said government forces, backed by its allies, also recaptured the area around the district and “army engineers are clearing it of bombs and explosives planted by the terrorists in the streets and squares.”
The capture of Masaken Hanano in the northeast of Aleppo could give the army line-of-fire control over several other parts of the city’s rebel-held east.

Police on Sunday said that one-third of the fires raging across the country are suspected to have been set deliberately.

In a statement, the police said that they suspect between 30-40 of the 90 fires they have investigated thus far were started by arsonists.

Police also said that although much of the evidence was destroyed by the fires, they are using forensic samples to determine whether the fires were ignited intentionally.

However, police have not yet found any evidence that the arson was coordinated nationally or planned in advance. Their assessment is that the arson was local and opportunistic, the statement said.
“Many of the incidents were caused by normal reasons, like weather or an electrical short circuit. But a serious number were caused by arson,” a spokesperson said. Many fires starting over a small area is an indicator of possible arson, he added.
“We are setting up a nationwide team to centralize the local details and are trying to find a connection,” the spokesperson said. “We are trying to understand who is behind the arson, and we are trying to reach them.”

A volcano in Mexico erupted, sending ash three miles into the air and prompting warnings from government officials for tourists and residents to stay away.
The Popocat├ępetl volcano, located in Pueblo state, erupted with a billowing cloud of dark ash billowing into the morning sky Friday. In the 24 hours since the eruption started, Mexican officials said there have been 129 exaltations of ash, three explosions and one measurable earthquake, a magnitude-1.8 tremor.

There have been at least 19 eruptions last week.

Are there still any people around saying that the seismic activity isn’t high around the world?

Scott, did you see that ufo footage from Turkey last night? Oh boy here it comes.....and on the joke ha ha side " they will do anything to keep Obama in office" lol I do feel this exposure sure has quite the coincidence in timing. Pray....

Scott said...

No but these stories are popping up several times a week now it seems

ally said...

Scott, I will try to give you some links. It was crazy last night, twitter, you tube etc shut down everything associated with it. Thousands yes, thousands of people hit Twitter and the videos I saw last night were unbelievable. These werent just twinkling lights....for them to be showing themselves this blatantly, we are at the brink of it. Beam me up Scotty! ;) wooop, we are going home, but not with those guys!!!! Giggle!

I dunno Ally (concerning the "ufos." If the "powers that be" want us to believe in ufos, why would they suppress something like this? On the other hand, we had some inexplicable ufo sightings in the Chicago area.I

Scott said...

I think many of these are military craft either under development or in use.I can recall the repeated sightings of the "black triangles" which descriptions looked almost identical to the stealth aircrafts which were later unleashed and the "sightings" then dropped dramatically....I also believe we have under development things that we can't even comprehend at this point,using technology that we are unfamiliar with...Its also of interest that this whole phenomena really began in the late 40's right around the time Israel was formed as a nation. Those dots aren't quick or easy it connect, but with some thought it will crystallize. There are some excellent videos on the whole UFO thing from a Christian perspective. Of course I can't help but consider my dream as well, which, IMO was clearly prophetic in nature

Geesh, I forgot that I read and commented on it before! I'm getting old(er). Still appreciated reading it again. Many prophecy experts believe that the great delusion to come may be tied to an "alien encounter." Does explain much.
