Footage released on Saturday shows the ancient city of Hatra, three days after the UNESCO World Heritage Site was liberated from the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) by the Iraqi Popular Mobilisation Forces. Hatra, situated some 290 kilometres (180 miles) northwest of Baghdad and 110 kilometres (68.3 miles) southwest of Mosul, was one of the country’s best-preserved ancient sites before it was captured by IS in 2014. In April 2015, IS issued a video showing militants decimating Hatra's statues with sledgehammers and assault rifles. The militant organisation used the temple area as a training ground and explosives factory, according to the Iraqi army. SOT, Soldier (Arabic): "Looks at those statues above on the wall. IS made targets out of them and destroyed the heads of the statues. I dont think that this can be fixed anymore.

Press TV Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan says the United States is under an illusion if it assumes that it can influence the outcome of the forthcoming presidential election in Iran, stressing that the Islamic Republic pursues a firmly-established and principled approach toward the US. “If the Americans think that they can influence Iran’s election, they are completely deluded because the Iranian nation is a wise nation and knows its enemies and acts contrary to the enemy’s demand,” Dehqan said in an interview with RT Arabic published on Friday. He added that the US and Britain as well as the various media outlets affiliated to them seek to support one political camp against the other in Iran's election. We are telling them that that is not how things are and our nation makes decisions based on the conditions specific to that time , the minister said, adding, That's why they do not look to the US or UK in elections.

Pope Francis is set to lead a mass for Egypt's small Catholic community on Saturday as he visits the country in support of its Christians following a series of deadly church bombings. The spiritual leader of the world's 1.3 billion Christians will lead mass for some 30,000 believers in a stadium on the outskirts of Cairo. The event will bring together members of all Catholic rites in the country -- Coptic, Armenian, Maronite and Melkite. Egypt's Catholic community is estimated at about 272,000. The Argentine pontiff will give a homily during the mass, which is to be held in Arabic and Latin. After lunching with Egyptian bishops, the pope will meet seminarians before wrapping up his 27-hour visit in the afternoon. Earlier this week, 23-year-old student Karim Saber said he was impatient to see the pope in his country. "By coming to Egypt, the pope is showing us that nothing can prevent us from praying, including terrorism," he said, referring to recent church bombings.

TeleSur | The man knew no Arabic and is of German heritage, but successfully posed as a Syrian asylum-seeker. German authorities have uncovered the case of a man who posed as a Syrian refugee and who was planning on carrying out a terror attack. The man, whose identity has not yet been released, was an officer in the German Army who held deeply xenophobic views and was planning on carrying out a “false flagterror attack that he would blame on refugees. Although he knew no Arabic and is of German heritage, the man was successfully able to pose as a Syrian asylum-seeker. He had even lived in an official refugee shelter and was paid benefits as an asylum-seeker. “This is quite an unusual story,” a spokesman for prosecutors in Frankfurt said, as reported by The Telegraph. “It’s more than strange. We will have to wait for the investigation to uncover his motives.

German police have announced the arrest of a 28-year-old lieutenant in the German military, along with a 24-year-old co-conspirator, who planned to carry out an attack while disguised as refugees , assuming that it would be blamed on the refugees . The exact details of what sort of attack was planned aren't totally clear, but the men were detained with explosives, and were both described as being hostile to foreigners and interested in bolstering public resentment against the refugees who have sought asylum within Germany. The lieutenant was not only planning to disguise himself as a refugee but had also falsely registered himself as a refugee to bolster the story that the attacker was a refugee. The same soldier had been detained in Austria earlier this year for having an illegal gun. Officials did not identify either of the men, but said they were still trying to figure out how the soldier managed to register as a Syrian refugee, since he spoke no Arabic and was not from an ethnic background that would make him even conceivably from Syria.

He gave false information to authorities in Giessen, Hesse, on 30 December 2015 – as Germany was overwhelmed by the arrival of almost a million asylum seekers. Posing as a Syrian refugee but reportedly speaking in French, rather than Arabic, the man submitted an asylum application at Zirndorf in Bavaria in January last year. “As a result, he was given shelter in a refugee home and has received monthly financial benefits under this false identity,” the Frankfurt prosecutor’s office said. “These findings, as well as other evidence, point towards a xenophobic motive for the soldier’s suspected plan to commit an attack using a weapon deposited at Vienna airport.” Read more: German soldier posing as a refugee arrested for planning false flag' attack A German soldier found posing as a Syrian refugee has been arrested for allegedly planning a false flag shooting attack that would be blamed on asylum seekers.

Aarab Marwan Barghouti, the son of jailed Palestinian official Marwan Barghouti who is leading a hunger strike of more than 1,500 Palestinians detained in Israeli prisons, gave a boost to prisoner solidarity campaigns by releasing a video of him drinking a bitter mixture of salt and water. The clip closes by asking others to participate in his salt water challenge in solidarity with the Palestinian hunger strikers. Aarab Barghouti challenged Arab Idol winner Mohammed Assaf to post a video of himself also drinking salt water. Assaf responded within hours with a recording, as did many others. Most of the videos are posted in Arabic, but a few have come been published over the last few hours in English or some combination of the two. Saltwater is symbolic of prisoner hunger strikes as in these protests the detainees generally abstain from food but consume saltwater as a means of steadying their health.

Netanyahu blatantly claimed that the occupied Golan is part of Israel and we will stay there for the world to acknowledge it as so. The US allies on both the southern and northern part of Syria have been busy lately, especially after the liberation of Aleppo from Nusra terrorists, preparing for a pre-planned balkanization of the Syrian sovereign state. Last month I wrote about it for RT concerning the northern part of Syria where the US have been facilitating and empowering the bigoted ideologies and groups for the soul purpose of partitioning the country. Since the beginning of this year reports have been emerging about the possibility of applying a similar strategy on the southern borderline shared between Syria and Jordan. The Arabic Al-Hayat newspaper reported on February 9 th 2017 that Jordan wants to follow Turkey’s example and conduct its own military operation in south Syria to allegedly rout the ISIS-affiliated Jaysh Khalid bin Walid.
