China is aiming advanced medium-range ballistic missiles at Taiwan as part of a growing military threat towards the island, Taipei's defence minister said Monday.
The announcement came after Taiwan said for the first time last week that it is capable of launching missiles at China as it warned of an increased invasion risk.
China still sees Taiwan as part of its territory to be brought back into its fold, by force if necessary, even though the island has been self-governing since the two sides split after a civil war in 1949.
Ties have worsened since Beijing-sceptic President Tsai Ing-wen took power last year, ending an eight-year rapprochement.
The DF-16 (Dongfeng 16) is capable of precise strikes against Taiwan and has been deployed by the Rocket Force of the People's Liberation Army, defence minister Feng Shih-kuan said.
Feng told lawmakers the development comes as China "strengthens its weaponry modernisation and military hard power".
He did not say how many missiles had been deployed or where.
Taiwan has said China is targeting the island with around 1,500 missiles -- this is the first time the defence ministry identified the DF-16 as among them.
Syrian rebel groups launched a surprise attack on regime forces on the eastern outskirts of Damascus on Sunday, according to opposition groups, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Syrian state media.
Clashes broke out in the Syrian capital, which has not seen such attacks in months, if not years, said SOHR Director Rami Abdel Rahman.
The rebel fighters began the attack from the district of Jobar in northeastern Damascus, an area split between rebel and government control. The rebel factions seem to have prepared for this offensive, Rahman said.
Since the start of the conflict, the Syrian regime and allied militias have held a very tight grip on the capital. The opposition only has a few pockets of control around Damascus, including a part of Jobar.
The assault was led by Islamist groups including Ahrar al-Sham and the recently formed umbrella jihadist group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham that includes Jabhat Fatah al-Sham.
Syrian state media reported that Syrian forces had repelled an attack by jihadist fighters, who also used tunnels to attack government positions.
Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to Infowars.com.
Infowars.com have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years.
The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reportspublished in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.
Sheriff Arpaio and Chief Investigator Zullo have identified dozens of entries at various addresses, including both Trump Tower in New York City and Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida, under which Donald Trump was apparently under NSA electronic surveillance from 2004, during President George W. Bush’s term of office, through 2009, the first year of President Obama’s presidency.
While attempts have been made to deny such domestic surveillance, reports from the New York Times in 2014 showed the Central Intelligence Agency had done just that by spying on a senate panel investigating the agency’s use of “enhanced interrogation.”
In a 2016 article from The Guardian entitled, “‘A constitutional crisis’: the CIA turns on the Senate,” it is likewise noted just how drastic and widespread the CIA’s domestic surveillance operation was.
If anyone hasn't , I hugely suggest reading a book on kindle called the rise of the new world order by Michael Thomas hays , I know it's hard for people to take on board that both the world wars were started by the illuminati, but they were ( Albert pike planned 3 world wars ) ! In chapter 9 of the rise of the new world order , you will see that the assassination of franz Ferdinand was a false flag event , that was an illuminati false flag , same as ww2 / twin towers etc etc etc , and we are very close to another huge false flag to trigger ww3 ! It's ALL PLANNED FOLKS , hard to take on board ! But it is
Mark, many of us here are extremely aware of Confederate General Albert Pike, his visions, writings, predictions, convictions of serious crimes and still having statues erected in his honor in DC. This is not new information to many here on this board.
Brother Mark, What does the "new world order" matter, as we are NOT going to go through the Tribulation. LOL! Little men in tall buildings can plot & plan all they want (I wont even get into your conspiracy stuff), but compared to GODS PLAN they are but mere annoying insects. Do you trust God or not? Do you trust His Word, or not? Do you know His Word or not? Silly, silly men who THINK they can take Him on, and His Plans that have been set from the beginning of time...lol :)
97 The Lord reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.
2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.
4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.
5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
6 The heavens declare his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
The comical thing is. And truly God works in mysterious ways , my dad who I love ❤️ with all my hear is a Freemason , and my brother is a catholic priest , if you google the GENUINE BLOOD LINES OF THE Illuminati, you will see they are both The same , they don't know it , AND GOD FORGIVES THEM, he does ! It's ironic ,that two of my family members belong to an organisation that are going to kill me ! Wings of prophecy ( persecution) ! I'm not trying to highlight myself , I'm not , I love it , goes to show that god chooses who he chooses , and there is NOTHING ANYBODY CAN DO ABOUT IT ! AND IF YOU CAN LOVE YOUR PERSECUTER ! Then you have reached CHRIST ! I'm still working on it ! 👍But it's ALL ABOUT LOVE GUYS , it really is , and I still struggle with it , BUT GOD IS LOVE ❤️
Brother Mark, I see you managed to once again, slip in and promote that same website (wings bla bla) that promotes that the FALSE teaching that Church will go through the Tribulation. smh Pretty slick of you.smh The Church is NOT going to go through the Tribulation, period.
Gary - I agree - not the same.....
Stephen is fine - I hear from him frequently on the stocks as relating to the harpazo. I like hearing from him (Stephen if you are reading this , I would be worried if I didn't hear from you) -- When the market tanks, I'll start posting his comments again, for now simply too redundant
