Lebanese Minister of Information Resigns Amid Growing National Anger

Manal Abdel-Samad submitted her resignation on Sunday in the wake of national protests targeted towards a corrupt government.

Following the national protests that took place over the weekend in Beirut, Lebanon’s Minister of Information Manal Abdel-Samad resigned on Sunday. This comes in the aftermath of the unprecedented explosion that took place last week, killing over 160 people. Without question, the frustration of the Lebanese people has reached its peak when it comes to government corruption.

Supposedly, at least one other minister close to the prime minister is expected to resign soon as well. Several other lawmakers have also resigned.

Within her letter of resignation, Samad portrayed her disappointment when it comes to failing the Lebanese people. She added, “Given the magnitude of the catastrophe caused by the Beirut earthquake that shook the nation and hurt our hearts and minds, and in respect for the martyrs, and the pains of the wounded, missing and displaced, and in response to the public will for change, I resign from the government.”

The Lebanese people have carried out protests several times in the last year, primarily targeting their corrupt government, which has resulted in a devastated economy. It’s estimated that nearly three-quarters of the country needs some sort of humanitarian aid. And now, post-explosion, over 300,000 additional people have been left homeless.August 9th, 2020|News http://www.BeholdIsrael.com

Underground Pastor Reveals: Turkey Becoming Another Iran

In exclusive interview, Turkish Christian leader says, “We have learned that democracy is not our savior”AUGUST 7, 2020  TOPICS: CHRISTIANSISLAMTURKEYREAD by David Lazarus

Turkey is tilting towards the East, and its growing relationship with China and Russia bode a major increase in the minefield of enemy warmongers along Israel’s northern border. In the meantime, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s strong-arm president, has undermined NATO by installing Russian S-400 anti-aircraft batteries pointed towards Israel and Europe, and is ramping up his support for terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah while allowing other jihadist groups like ISIS to launch terror attacks unhindered in the region.

To get an insider’s look at these disturbing developments, Israel Today spoke with Mustafa, a pastor and leader of Turkey’s underground church just barely surviving under the growing Islamization of the newly radicalized Turkish regime.

“Most people have no idea what is really happening in this country,” said Mustafa, who cannot reveal his real name for fear of violent retribution against his wife and three children. He explained that just having contact with someone from Israel is now considered an act of treason as Erdogan continues to push the once secular democracy towards a regional Islamic power.

Israel Attacks Syria Following Attempted Border Bombing

JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli fighter jets, helicopters, and aircraft carried out airstrikes against the Syrian military Monday evening in response to an attempt by four men to plant explosives near the security fence between Israel and Syria Sunday night.

The Israel Defense Forces struck numerous positions held by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces, including observation posts, intelligence collections systems, anti-aircraft artillery, and command and control systems.

“The IDF sees the Syrian regime as responsible for all operations carried out in its territory and will continue to act with determination against all attacks on the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” said the IDF in a statement.

Syria’s official news agency, SANA, said that the Syrian military engaged “hostile targets” near Damascus, and the enemy airstrikes inflicted “material damage” in the city of Quneitra.  Al-Arabiya reports that some injuries were sustained during the strikes.

Shortly before the airstrikes, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that an air raid by unidentified aircraft had killed at least 15 Iranian-backed militiamen in al-Bukamal.

Citing “reliable sources,” the group said the attack targeted “positions of Iranian forces and Iranian-backed militias in Imam Ali Base, areas near Al-Sekka, and in Al-Bokamal desert in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.”

SOHR sources said that military vehicles transported dead and injured militiamen to Iraq.

On Sunday, Israeli troops killed four men who entered Israeli territory and attempted to plant explosives near an unmanned IDF post along the security fence.
