US Poseidon-8 Orchestrated Drone Attack on Hmeymim Air Base - Russian MoD - Sputnik International

“The Syrian Armed Forces, supported by Russian Aerospace Forces, have managed to purge terrorists from virtually the entire territory of the Middle Eastern country, Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin said on Thursday.

‘Over the past years, the Syrian government's forces supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces managed to liberate virtually the entire territory of the country from the terrorists of the Daesh* terrorist group and the groups that have joined them,’ Fomin said at the Xiangshan Forum on security in Beijing.

Normalcy is being restored in Syria as the country's citizens are returning to their homes, the official pointed out.”

[Venezuela's Foreign Minister Samuel] Moncada told a news conference in Caracas that a man hijacked a helicopter and flew over the Interior Ministry during an event with reporters for the National Day of the Journalist of some 80 people. The pilot then targeted the Supreme Court offices throwing four grenades at the building, one of which did not detonate.

Moncada called the assailant identified as Oscar Alberto Perez, a "psychopath" who declared himself a "Warrior of God" in an Instagram message recorded before the attacks.

In the video, Perez, a pilot from the Venezuela's Scientific, Penal and Criminal Investigations police agency, claims to represent a group of military and other officials committed to toppling the government of President Nicolas Maduro.

The new foreign minister said that international press agencies have called the attacker a "Rambo-type figure who escaped in a helicopter to fight for freedom," adding that in any other part of the world the act would have been labeled terrorism.

"This warrior of God in any country would be a terrorist, he is a murderer, he had the intention to kill, he doesn't defend the innocent people in Venezuela."

[...]

Moncada also criticized what he called the "double standards" of countries and institutions — specifically naming the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Argentina, as well as the Organization of American States — for issuing statements claiming to be worried about human rights in the country, but not condemning a terrorist attack.

"This is shameful, painful," Moncada said. "Is it that the lives of innocent civilians in the center of Caracas don't matter to them? They don't care about Venezuelans."
Venezuela Slams OAS, Opposition Silence After Helicopter 'Terror' Attack (teleSUR English, Jun. 28 2017)

    “Earlier on Tuesday, Maduro warned that he and supporters would take up arms if his socialist government was violently overthrown by opponents who have been on the streets protesting for three months.

    ‘I'm telling the world, and I hope the world listens after 90 days of protest, destruction and death,’ Maduro said in reference to anti-government unrest that has led to at least 75 deaths in the OPEC nation since April.

    ‘If Venezuela was plunged into chaos and violence and the Bolivarian Revolution destroyed, we would go to combat. We would never give up, and what couldn't be done with votes, we would do with weapons, we would liberate the fatherland with weapons.’

    Maduro, 54, was speaking at a rally to promote a July 30 vote for a special super-body called a Constituent Assembly, which could rewrite the national charter and supersede other institutions such as the opposition-controlled congress.

    He has touted the assembly as the only way to bring peace to Venezuela. But opponents, who want to bring forward the next presidential election scheduled for late 2018, say it is a sham poll designed purely to keep the socialists in power.

    They are boycotting the vote and protesting daily on the streets to try and have it stopped.

    Opposition leaders call Maduro a dictator who has wrecked a once-prosperous economy, while he calls them violent coup leaders.

    Maduro, who accuses Washington of backing his opponents and seeking to control the nation's oil wealth, said the ‘destruction’ of Venezuela would lead to a huge refugee wave dwarfing the migrant crisis in the Mediterranean.

    Opposition to the July 30 vote has come not just from Venezuelan opposition parties, but also from the chief state prosecutor Luisa Ortega and onetime government heavyweights like former intelligence service boss Miguel Rodriguez.

    At a news conference on Tuesday, Rodriguez criticised Maduro for not holding a referendum prior to the Constituent Assembly election, as his predecessor Chavez had done in 1999.

    ‘This is a country without government, this is chaos,’ he said.”

    “Branding the raids as ‘terrorist’ attacks, Maduro said on Wednesday that the incidents were part of an ‘escalation’ by right-wing ‘coup’ plotters against the ruling Socialist party.

    The Venezuelan president also ordered security stepped up by putting the army on alert following the attacks in Caracas, where shots were fired from a helicopter at the Interior Ministry building and grenades were dropped on the Supreme Court building on Tuesday.

    ‘I have activated the entire armed forces to defend the peace,’ Maduro said in remarks broadcast from the presidential palace.

    No casualties were reported in the Tuesday incidents.

    The Venezuelan government blamed the attack on Oscar Perez, a 36-year-old police pilot, who had called for the resignation of Maduro and early elections in a video published on social media.

    ‘We are a coalition of military, police, and civilian public servants... opposed to this transitional, criminal government,’ Perez had said in the video footage.

    Some opposition leaders in Venezuela, however, suspect the raid might have been a government set-up to justify repression amid a worsening economic and political crisis. Venezuela has seen three attempted military coups since 1992.’

for now... but given the recent ISIS attacks on Tehran, I’m not sure what happens in the future.

イラン軍関係者、「テロリストに忘れられない教訓を与えるだろう」 - Pars Today

“…〔イラン統合参謀本部のバーゲリー議長は〕「覇権主義体制とシオニズムが、地域の反動勢力、部族政権の首脳と協調し、サウジアラビアのオイルマネーによって、諜報機関が育成したテロリストをイラン国民への敵対のために送り込んだことに疑いの余地はない」と強調しました。

バーゲリー議長は、最近のサウジアラビアの剣舞に参加した人々、イランの安全保障を乱すためのシナリオを計画しようとしている者たちへの警告として、「今月7日にテヘランを攻撃したテロリストらの結末から教訓を得、過ちを繰り返したり、それを考えることすらやめるべきだ」と語りました。

イランのアミールアブドッラーヒヤーン国会議長国際担当特別顧問も、「サウジアラビアのサルマン国防大臣は、サウジアラビアは情勢不安をイラン国内に持ち込むと脅迫していた。現在、サウジアラビアはテヘランのテロに対して回答すべきだ」と述べました”

@darksideofthemoon’s reaction to: verschwoerer: Don’t forget that what they want us to be afraid of is the least…

Well, you can't compare 'natural' or unavoidable deaths to others. But nevertheless terrorism is in europe something not to be worried about.
