PANAGYURISHTE, (BM) – Your briefly report on September 10 in last twelve hours from BulgarianMilitary.com:
Israeli planes struck east Syria, says Hezbollah military media unit
Israeli planes hit a Syrian army camp under construction in eastern Syria early on Monday without casualties, said a military media unit run by Lebanon’s Hezbollah, a Syrian government ally. (Reuters)
War monitor the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had earlier reported that strikes by unidentified planes had killed pro-Iran fighters and attacked positions and arms depots belonging to them in Albu Kamal, a town near the Iraqi border.
“The enemy targeted a camp under construction for the Syrian army and its allies to house soldiers away from civilian homes… The building was empty at the time of targeting and there were no casualties,” the media unit said, quoting a security source in Syria.
It said the incident happened in the Albu Kamal area.
The Israeli military said it does not comment on foreign reports.
Al-Qaeda seizes control of southern Yemen district
Al-Qaeda forces in southern Yemen yesterday managed to wrestle control of a district in the Abyan province which is the hometown of Saudi-backed Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. (MEMO)
Al-Wadea district was overrun with Al-Qaeda fighters, who sources say began to emerge not long after the reported arrival of dozens of Islah aligned militia last week from Marib to the oil producing province of Shabwa, which shares a border with Abyan.
The Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Islah could be taking heed of a fatwa, religious edict, issued by the Board of Yemeni Ulema (religious scholars), which called for the southern separatist “insurgency” headed by the Southern Transitional Council (STC) to be eliminated.
The UAE, although partners with Saudi Arabia in the coalition against the Houthi-dominated north, also backs the STC, causing a rift between the two Gulf states, especially since the STC assumed control over the strategic port city of Aden, which served as the de-facto capital of the Hadi government.
Japan says no immediate threat to national security from North Korea launches
A Japanese defence ministry official said on Tuesday there was no confirmation of any ballistic missile entering the country’s territory or EEZ, adding there was no immediate threat to its national security. (Reuters)
South Korea’s military said earlier North Korea fired two unidentified projectiles from South Pyongan province towards the east.
