I have once again fallen out of keeping pace with Syria/Libya, but it seems to me that all the non-Syrian players in that country's war have decided Libya is the place to play now (much more Turkey than Russia and other powers.)

Here are the reasons.   1) It might make Americans sympathetic to Philippines President Duterte. That's because Duterte = Trump > Hitler.   2) Because we have our own news story

Because sometimes you have to act even though you know this is what your adversary wants. This has been a lose-lose situation for Israel from the very beginning. There was no possible way to turn

Some guy took a selfie with the hijacker:

If 2020 wasn't bad enough... another fight between Armenia and Azerbaijan broke out. Azeri side so far admitted at least 2 dead and 5 injured. 


Since Turkey stands behind Azeris and Russia behind Armenia it may become another proxy front after Syria and Lybia...

   Well, that "proxy-war" thing is already happened in 2016, so nothing new. In fact, this is a very old conflict, older than me, so nothing new at all, except of weapon systems used.

Sure, it's old but basically frozen aside of few skirmishes from time to time. What I meant is that it may become hotter at some point. With one skirmish per years as it is now it's hardly a front of a proxy war.

Allegedly 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate seized from a broken ship (of a bankrupted owner) six years ago and just left stored in an empty building the port. Now the place, though which most of Lebanese and Syrian foreign trade goes through, is destroyed and most of the Lebanese grain supplies are destroyed too. Likely hundreds are of dead and many thousands injured. Many ships destroyed too. 


This photo seems to be legit based on the pre-explosion footage. 


From isi an image of a capsized passenger ship Orient Queen (roughly 7500 tonns). 


Our USAR team of 36 specialists and 5 dogs joined the rescued effort as well.

The 128th brigade of the Libyan National Army (LNA) has acquired a new transport for the top leadership - Toyota Tundra with a armor kit from the Emirati company MSPV.

   When they start to get more serious toys so we can look how both sides lose them in stupid ways? Also, Yemeni, Libyan and Syrian conflict are slow recently, heh.
