Moderate and Islamist rebel groups in a Damascus suburb in Syria signed a “non-aggression” agreement with the Islamic State (ISIS), a Syrian monitoring group said. Some of the brigades are part of the U.S.-backed Syrian Revolutionary Front but have now agreed to a truce in Hajar al-Assad with ISIS

Meanwhile Muslim Brotherhood moves to Turkey. For the already bad blood with Egypt to be even bigger.

I wouldn't put money on that agreement, the claim that the sides to it represent IS and/or any "moderate" side to the conflict (The claim that IS would bother to "sign" non-aggression agreements does not seem to reflect what has been going on so far). I would put money, OTOH that this so called "agreement" will serve as an argument against coalition involvement in Syria, which happens to be the weakest spot in this shaky coalition, while the same news item in Arabic will be translated to a "co-operation agreement".
IS have been managing a carefully planned media campaign.. You wouldn't think they'd stop because Sec. Kerry is wandering in circles all over the ME attempting to establish a minimal common grounds for such coalition's real action.

U.N. Golan peacekeepers pull back from Syrian positions amid clashes

 

 

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.N. peacekeepers in the Golan Heights are pulling out from four positions and a camp on the Syrian side of the Syrian-Israeli border due to a severe deterioration of security in the region, the United Nations said on Monday.

The decision to pull blue-helmeted observers back to the Israeli side of...

 

That's what I don't get, retreating to the Israeli side? But aren't they the murderers, the child killers? The ones who shoot Iron Dome missiles into Gaza schools and hospitals? And the UN retreat to their side! I don't understand anything any longer!

And see how no one talks about the supposed blunder that Israel did by not making an agreement with the Assads in Syria and withdrawing from the Golan, where there would be peacekeepers to guarantee the peace.....

200k flee Syria, mostly into Turkey

 

Also, US airstrikes have begun

 

This leaves room for disaster:

 

 

The strikes in Syria were not invited by the government of Bashar Assad who is waging a brutal civil war against opponents of his regime, including IS militants. It's unclear how Assad will react to the U.S-led attacks. His military possesses sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles, although most of them are near the capital of Damascus and near the border with Israel.

Assad won't do a damn thing. Why would he? We're striking at militants that are against him. With the US and NATO after ISIS, he can concentrate on wiping out the moderate rebels.

Aircraft from several Arab states took part in the attack. They were: Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, according to a senior Defense Department official who was not authorized to speak publicly about their participation.

Conflict of interest.    :lol:

I guess those old Patriots are still in good working order. I wonder what is the shelf life of those PAC-1 missiles.

As manufactured in their launch containers they were supposed to have a 10 year shelf life, sealed (the whole 'wood round' thing from the 80's). No idea about the date of manufacture or if they have been refurbished; I'm sure the IDF wouldn't keep them lying around unless they had a high confidence of them being in working order.
