Al-Sharq al-Awsat: Intensive raids after targeting a Russian-Turkish patrol

The Arab newspapers published this morning on the Syrian issue covered several issues, the most prominent of which was the escalation in Idlib, and in this context Al-Sharq Al-Awsat newspaper said: "Russia launched intensive raids on the countryside of Latakia and Idlib, after wounding three of the Russian army during their patrol with the Turkish side on a road Aleppo - Lattakia, northwestern Syria.

The Russian Ministry of Defense stated that the patrol took place in an ambush prepared by gunmen, as an explosive device planted on its way exploded, resulting in the injury of "three" soldiers.

According to the data provided by the ministry, a number of Turkish soldiers were also wounded in the bombing, but Russian sources did not specify the number of injuries on the Turkish side or the degree of their seriousness, but it is interesting in the reconciliation center statement that it indicated a freeze in the conduct of joint patrols on this path, and encircling the region to withdraw the vehicles that were damaged.

Al-Arab: Turkey's intransigence paves the way for Egyptian military intervention in Libya

On the Libyan issue, Al-Arab newspaper said: "The intransigence of Turkey and its increasing ambitions to control Sirte and the oil fields, ignoring domestic and international calls for a ceasefire, prompted the Libyan parliament to request an Egyptian military intervention that puts an end to these ambitions.

In a statement issued late on Monday evening, the parliament, which operates from the coastal city of Tobruk in the east, said that Egyptian support was needed to repel what he described as the Turkish occupation.

"The Egyptian armed forces intervene to protect the Libyan and Egyptian national security if they see that there is an imminent threat to the security of our two countries," the statement said.

The statement called for "concerted efforts between the two countries, Libya and Egypt, to ensure the defeat of the invading occupier and preserve our common national security and achieve security and stability in our country and the region."

The Syrian mercenaries and militia attempted to launch an attack from the city of Misrata, but the entry of air on the line was likely to be an Egyptian who thwarted the attack, and the militias inflicted heavy losses in equipment and lives.

Despite Egypt's direct declaration of its intention to interfere in Libya, the Turks and Islamists in Libya and abroad are now avoiding attacking it through statements by Turkish officials, or Turkish and Qatari media, regarding an unprecedented calm that aims to win the Egyptian position.

Observers noted that the majority of the statements of officials in Ankara did not directly in the name of Egypt regarding the issue of unknown flights that recently bombed al-Wattiya base, and did not dare to hold it responsible of any kind, as if it avoids slipping towards a military confrontation, and Ankara realizes that its forces on the ground are not sufficient, which requires send more if you want war at a time when fighting is on the fronts of Syria and Iraq.

And the followers attributed, in statements to "Al-Arab," the relative calm that followed the destruction of al-Wattiya base, to political confusion in Ankara, and moves by various forces to put pressure it to stop the persistence of interference and open the way for a political solution, but it does not currently tend to do so, nor mercenaries are still being mobilized in Libya.

Turkey wants to obtain a victory that sets the balance in its favor, because the result is not in its favor and in favor of the Islamists, despite its success in thwarting the army's control of Tripoli, because oil, the source of wealth, is still out of its control.

Al-Arab: The Iranian-backed forces are moving to bring down al-Kazemi in the street and parliament

In its turn, Al-Arab newspaper said: "Iraqi political and popular forces opposed to Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi are preparing a campaign to put pressure the government in Parliament and the street, with the aim of bringing it down, amid expectations that the confrontation will be raging this summer.

Informed sources say that the leaders of the Al-Fateh Coalition, the second largest parliamentary bloc in the Iraqi parliament, have contacted with the leader of the State of Law Nuri al-Maliki to discuss the future of the al-Kazemi government and the possibility of its dismissal in parliament, before signing binding long-term agreements with the United States, in the context of the dialogue that He set off between the two countries weeks ago.

The anti-al-Kazemi political forces belong to Iran’s close allies.

These forces realize that they do not have the political ability to overthrow al-Kazimi, in light of the presence of two Shiite forces supporting him, the first led by Muqtada al-Sadr and the second led by Ammar al-Hakim.
