  10. Satellite failure and alleged attacks ... What is happening in Iran? February 09, 2020 Internet services were partially blocked on Sunday in Iran due to a cyber attack - a picture of an Iranian using a smartphone An Iranian missile carrying a satellite failed to put it into orbit, in the latest failure of a program the United States believes is helping to advance Tehran's ballistic missile program. The authorities at the Imam Khomeini space port in Samnan province failed to launch the missile after two failed attempts last year and a missile exploded at a launch pad at the facility. Meanwhile, the Iranian authorities claim that Internet services were partially cut off from the country by an electronic attack that disrupted internet service providers Sunday, due to cyber attacks (DDoS). The NetBlocks organization monitored the partial shutdown of Internet services in the country at 25 percent, while services remained available for 75 percent of subscriptions.✔@netblocks Confirmed: Internet partially shut down #Iran from 11:45 a.m. local time (08:15 UTC); real-time network data show national connectivity fall to 75% after authorities reportedly activated "Digital Fortress" isolation mechanism; incident ongoing A report released by Forbes website indicated that it is not uncommon for DDoS countries to be used for cyberattack, hinting that there is a long series of "alleged" cyberattacks against Iranian infrastructure. The report stated that the "alleged" attack comes in the wake of the delay in launching an Iranian observation satellite that should have been launched on Sunday, according to a report by Radio Farda, which raised questions in light of Morteza Barari, head of the Iranian Space Organization, that the launch will take place at the first opportunity when all Thing. On Sunday, the attempt to launch the Iranian satellite again failed, May Sher, to Tehran's inability to successfully launch it. The Internet outage in the country raised questions, most notably whether the delay in launching the satellite was related to the cyberattack or not? Sajid Punabi, an official at the Iranian Ministry of Communications, said on Twitter, "An attack at 08:14 GMT to disrupt the digital servers is causing disruption to the internet services provided by some fixed and cellular providers." The official did not specify the source of the attack, which was intended to order unnecessary requests from servers in order to disable them, which are known as DDoS attacks. He added that "the connection to the Internet returned to normal after the intervention of the electronic security shield - the digital castle.

This company owns all the communication infrastructure in the country. NetBlocks noted that although no technical errors appeared on the Internet in Iran, the problems occurred "coinciding with targeted targeting." And Tehran announced in December that it would repel a "well-organized cyber attack" targeting "public service infrastructure on the Internet." Communications Minister Muhammad Javad Azari Jahrami said that what happened was "very intense" and "with state support." Last September, Tehran denied that hundreds of oil platforms were exposed to turmoil after being subjected to an electronic attack. In the wake of blocking Internet services during the recent demonstrations in Iran, Washington announced last November to impose sanctions on Iranian Communications Minister Muhammad Javad Azri Jahrami, because of his responsibility to block the web and impose restrictions on many text messaging applications to prevent communication between protesters, in line with what it is witnessing The country from a wave of widespread protests. US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin stressed at the time that "Iranian officials are aware that the presence of a free and open internet in the country reveals their illegitimacy, and therefore they seek to impose restrictions on them, in order to stifle anti-regime demonstrations." He explained that this minister was subject to sanctions because of his responsibility to impose restrictions on the ability to "access the Internet, including restrictions on many popular messaging applications that help keep Iranians in contact with each other and with the outside world." Under the new sanctions, all of the Secretary's financial assets are frozen, and the benefits of real estate he owns in the United States, if any. This decision also prevents US citizens or companies from dealing with the minister.فشل-القمر-الصناعي-وهجمات-مزعومة-ماذا-يحدث-في-إيران-/533047.html

  12. Revealing the scenes of the secret Davos meetings to establish a permanent American base in northern Iraq 16:49 - 09/02/2020 0 Information / translation ... An analytical report for the iCord Daily website revealed that the behind-the-scenes meetings between US President Donald Trump and Iraqi President Barham Saleh and Kurdish Negervan Barzani at the Davos conference in Switzerland were particularly focused on the Trump administration's attempt to refrain from any additional investment in Iraq and instead multiply it The American military presence in Kurdistan. The report, which was translated by the information agency, stated that "Between the days of January 9 and 10, 2020, Assistant Secretary of State David Schenker traveled to Arbil, but he went beyond Baghdad, and according to the report related to his visit only, he met with Kurdish and Sunni leaders." He continued, "And as Barzani did by inserting Saddam's forces to weaken his rival, Talabani, the Barzani government helped to arm ISIS to weaken Maliki, when they betrayed the Yezidis in Sinjar to weaken the Kurdish opposition." He continued that "Kurdish leaders and Kurdish pressure groups have apparently convinced some in the Trump administration that Baghdad is not reformable and that the United States should weigh heavily with the Kurds." And the report stated that “Kurdish officials are currently seeking to establish a permanent American base in their area so that American forces can continue to support its mission and monitor Iran . On the surface, this seems like a plan like Senator Joe Biden's plan to divide Iraq into three ethnic and sectarian divisions, but in reality, it will not work and will not make the region safe and reassuring. ”Ended / 25d
  13. Analysis .. The world is approaching the fourth wave of debt February 09, 2020 03:07 PM Mubasher - Ahmed Shawky : Amidst the World Bank warning of a massive wave of debt escalating all over the world, it is not clear who will be affected the most. But if the countries most vulnerable to the brunt of the debt wave, from the UK to India, do not act soon, they may face severe economic damage, according to Kyushik Paseo, a former World Bank economist, through an analysis published by Project Syndicate. Over the past decade, the global economy has seen a steady accumulation of debt, now reaching 230 percent of global GDP, with the fact that the last three debt waves have caused a major economic recession around the world. The catastrophic past of debt The first debt wave was in the early 1980s, after 10 years of low borrowing costs that enabled governments to expand their balance sheets considerably, interest rates began to rise, making debt service increasingly unsustainable. Mexico was the first victim, as the US government and the International Monetary Fund were informed in 1982 that they could no longer pay their debts. This had a domino effect, as 16 Latin American countries and 11 least developed countries outside the region eventually rescheduled their debt. In the 1990s, interest rates were again low, raising global debt again. The crash came in 1997, when the fast-growing but financially vulnerable East Asian economies - including Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea and Thailand - experienced a sharp slowdown in growth and their currency rates plunged, thus extending effects to all parts of the world. But emerging economies are not alone vulnerable to such meltdowns, as demonstrated by the 2008 US mortgage crisis. By the time everyone discovered what the mortgage crisis meant, American investment bank Lehman Brothers had collapsed, causing the worst crises and recessions since the Great Depression. The fourth wave of debt The World Bank recently warned that the fourth debt wave may exceed in its first three waves, as emerging economies whose debt-to-GDP ratio reached a record low of 170 percent are particularly vulnerable. As in previous cases, the debt crisis increases due to lower interest rates, while anxiety will start as soon as interest starts to rise. The reality is that the mechanisms of such crises are not well understood, but research conducted by "Stephen Morris" and "Mortar Song Shin" in 1998 about the mysterious origins of currency crises, and how they are transmitted to other economies, shows that a "financial tsunami" can make the situation go beyond a source the crisis. How the source of the financial crisis could fade has been illustrated in the delightful short story "Ranam Kurtva" by the famous Indian writer, Shibram Chakraborti. In this story, the desperate Chipram asks an old school friend, Harsha, to lend him 500 rupees ($ 7) on Wednesday with a promise to pay the deposit the following Saturday. But Chibram is wasting money, so when he comes on Saturday, he has no choice but to ask another school friend, Jopar, for a loan of 500 rupees, to pay it back next Wednesday. Chipram uses the money to pay off his debts to Harsha, but when he comes on Wednesday he has no way to pay off Jopar’s debt, so he reminds Harsha that he paid off his debts on time and therefore borrowed from him again. This becomes customary as Shibram repeatedly borrows from a friend to pay off his debts to the other, and Shibram then clashes with Harsha and Jobar one day. After a moment of anxiety, Chipram proposes an idea that every Wednesday Harsha should give “Jopar” 500 rupees, and every Saturday the latter must give the same amount to the first. Shepram assures his former friends at school that this will save him a lot of time and change nothing for them, and he will disappear in the crowds of the city "Kolkata" in India. The UK and India are a model of the crisis So who are the potential "Harsha" and "Jobar" in today's debt spree? According to the World Bank, they could be any country with domestic vulnerabilities, a large fiscal balance sheet, and a heavily indebted population. There are many countries that fit this description and run the risk of becoming the channel that carries the fourth debt wave of the global economy. Among the advanced economies, the UK is a clear candidate, and in 2019 Britain barely avoided recession, recording the weakest pace of growth in any period not seen since the 1945 recession. Britain's conservatives have also promised big increases in commercial investment, and this is unlikely, but instead it will be a debt wave. Among emerging economies, India is particularly vulnerable, as in the 1980s the Indian economy was somewhat protected, and consequently the debt wave had little impact at that time. At the time of the East Asia crisis in 1997, India had just begun to open up and thus experienced some slowdown in growth. By the time of the debt wave in 2008, the country had become globally integrated and severely affected, but its economy was strong and growing at almost 10 percent annually, and recovered within a year. But India’s economy today faces one of the deepest crises of the past 30 years, with growth slowing sharply and unemployment at the highest level in 45 years, almost no export growth over the past six years, and per capita consumption in the agricultural sector over the past five years. Add to this a highly polarized political environment, and therefore it is no wonder that investor confidence is rapidly declining. It is not too late for countries to build "walls" to protect against the debt tsunami, while while India's political problems will take time to resolve, the new budget may be an opportunity to take precautionary action. The fiscal deficit must be controlled in the medium term, but the government will be prudent in adopting an expansionary fiscal policy now, with funds directed to support infrastructure and investment, and if managed properly, could boost demand without increasing inflationary pressures and strengthening the economy in order to cope with the debt wave.تحليل-العالم-يقترب-من-الموجة-الرابعة-للديون/

He also revealed that the 2020 budget that the value of the operational budget takes 110 percent of the value of oil deliveries. As for what was monitored for the investment budget, it does not exceed credit or new loans, stressing in a lecture he gave at the Baghdad College of Economic Sciences that (employing more than 300,000 new employees and returning a number that may exceed that to the armed forces drains the operational budget as well as not reviewing the privileges and double salaries Under political headings (proposing that) the Parliament will conduct a legislative revolution that will reconsider all of these laws and set the ceiling for the use of oil in spending on the operational budget, stressing that the Law of the Council of Reconstruction without such a financial allocation will not present anything new ... indicating that the Council for Reconstruction in the Covenant The So was allocated 70 percent of the proceeds of oil .. then equally in the era of Abdul Karim Qassem, even ended up to the war economy model). Refund Saleh stressed that (the best solutions start with the abolition of concessions and double salaries and legislation to return money to the people instead of these ongoing protests because the government job is costly and does not provide any product added to the public budget while the signing of the partnership law with the private sector presented to the House of Representatives is one of the primary keys to restoring A comprehensive look at the Money Management Governance of Iraq). In a symposium of the Iraqi Society for Public Policy and Human Development and the Baghdad College of Economic Sciences, the first forum was held to host Saleh and after a welcoming speech favored by Professor Dr. Al-Shami to guests ... stressing the importance of these meetings between elites and academic and cultural competencies to discuss topical issues, including the subject of the Iraqi agreement with China. Saleh urged the importance of signing the partnership law with the private sector that is presented to the House of Representatives ... and we came to the fact that it represents one of the main keys to a comprehensive review of the governance of Iraqi money management. He promised what is going on about economic memoranda of understanding signed between the Ministry of Finance and one of the Chinese investment credit banks ... that included a renewed model in economic transactions. . It is known as a diving investment fund by depositing the value of the rent of 100 thousand barrels, which Iraq exports to China daily. These oil exports to China amount to about 22 percent of the total value of Iraq’s exports and the value of one hundred thousand barrels does not represent more than 1 percent of Iraq's total oil exports. And believes that (this investment model gives Iraq the equation of both parties win. Not profit and loss ... and is subject to mathematical control and also the feasibility of European companies to ensure competition between prominent Chinese companies in the international market for important Iraqi projects in sectors that provide direct financial abundance to the state treasury as an added profit value for the budget In general, such as petrochemical projects, oil refineries and electric power production, and others that offer a direct non-profit service such as building dams. On media confusion about the agreement, he sees that (the issue is still in its first steps and does not rise to a sovereign agreement between two countries, but rather a model of credit financing in the implementation phase). After discussions of the elite attendance of the vocabulary of the lecture, it was agreed on the importance of investment with a broad title that bridges the knowledge gap on the one hand and plays the role of the private sector in providing employment opportunities.

Harb added, “If the month ends without the success of the designated president, to present his government, then the president of the republic is obligated to assign another person after the first failure and it is not permissible to reassign the same person. The taxpayer can submit part of his booth to Parliament during the specified period, as the constitution did not specify the upper or lower limits for the cabinet cabinet, which gives room in this part to the prime minister-designate to present what he has and complete the rest at another time.سياسة/334018/خبير-قانوني-رئيس-الجمهورية-سيكلف-بديلا-عن-علاوي-في

  20. A month after the Ukrainian plane disaster ... Iran celebrates a new missile February 09, 2020 The new Thunder 500 missile Despite the crises that Iran suffers from due to its arms race, the Revolutionary Guards announced the launch of a new missile called "Raad 500", about a month after the disaster of bringing down the Ukrainian plane in a disaster that killed 176 people. The Revolutionary Guards said that the missile carries a new generation of propulsion engines bearing the name "Zuhair", as it can withstand pressure (Bar100) and a temperature of three thousand degrees Celsius, according to the Israeli newspaper " Jerusalem Post ". The missile has a length of about 13 meters, which is equivalent to the height of eight people, and it can reach beyond 200 kilometers from the range of the "light" missile, especially since it is light in weight and uses fiber fibers. Despite the US sanctions and the difficult economic conditions the population is living in, the authorities are making efforts and money to develop missiles and weapons, which have been proven more than once to use them against targets in the region, not to mention smuggling them to the Lebanese Hezbollah. Tehran has launched cruise missiles at oil facilities belonging to Saudi Arabia, and has launched ballistic missiles at an Iraqi military base hosting American forces. And local media published video clips of the new missile that can carry light satellites and surface-to-surface missiles, as well as pictures of the Commander-in-Chief of the Revolutionary Guard Hussein Salami, accompanied by the head of the Iranian Space Agency Ali Haji, in what appeared to be an announcement of the new missile. Reports say that Tehran wants to manufacture more solid fuel missiles for the battles, as it will depend on reducing costs in order to increase production, as it has found it lost in carbon fibers. In addition to the Raad missile, the Revolutionary Guards announced the "Salman" engines, which are made of lighter steel materials but equipped with a "moving nozzle" to send satellites into space. Iran has a group of missiles in its military arsenal, which includes Shahab 3, which has a range of 2000 kilometers, and Fateh and Fajr with a range of 50 meters, and the Raad 500 missile, which has a range of 500 kilometers. Iran's satellite and missile programs raise Western fears, while Tehran insists it does not violate any UN resolutions.بعد-شهر-من-كارثة-الطائرة-الأوكرانية-إيران-تحفي-بصاروخ-جديد/533056.html
  21. After unsuccessful attempts ... Iran begins a "countdown" to launch a satellite February 09, 2020 Another Iranian attempt to launch a satellite Send via media Print the article The Iranian Minister of Communications announced that his country started the "countdown" on Sunday to launch a new scientific observation satellite within hours. The United States has expressed concern about Iran's satellite program, calling the carrier rocket launch in January 2019 a "provocation." "The countdown to the launch of the moon + Zafar + started in the next few hours," Communications Minister Muhammad Javad Azari Jahromi wrote in a tweet. On the first of February, the head of the Iranian National Space Agency said that the moon, which weighs 113 kg and can rotate 15 times around the Earth a day, will be placed on orbit some 530 km from Earth by the Simorgh launcher. Mortada Berari told AFP that the "main mission" of the moon would be to "collect scenes", stressing Iran's need for this, especially to study earthquakes, prevent them, "prevent natural disasters" and develop agriculture. And in January 2019, Tehran announced that the Payam satellite, which was dedicated to collecting data on environmental change in Iran, had failed to orbit. The United States considered the launch of the carrier missile in violation of International Resolution 2231. This resolution calls on Iran to "not carry out any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be able to transport nuclear charges, including launches that use ballistic missile technology." Tehran asserts that it has no intention of acquiring a nuclear weapon and that its ballistic and space programs are legitimate and do not violate Resolution 2231. Iran confirmed in September that an explosion occurred in one of its platforms for launching satellites due to a technical failure. In response to a tweet in which he was asked what would happen if the moon failed "a nail" similar to the previous moon, Jahromi said, "We will try again." Internet services in Iran have faced cyberattacks in the past two days, according to the ministry. The authorities did not specify the source of the attack or its possible motives. The Iranian economy is suffering from a deterioration due to the sanctions imposed by Washington on the Iranian regime, which leads nuclear activities, and others destabilizing the region. Corruption has caused citizens to take to the streets more than once to demand a change in the system and the achievement of public freedoms in the country.بعد-محاولات-فاشلة-إيران-تبدأ-العد-العكسي-لإطلاق-قمر-صناعي/533035.html
  22. A threat to Allawi .. "Al-Sadr will turn Iraq into hell and fall for it in 3 days." February 09, 2020 Anti-government demonstrators in Baghdad Send via media Print the article A leader in the Sadrist movement threatened Iraqi Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Allawi to "overthrow" him within three days and turn Iraq "hell" over him if he undertook to include people belonging to political parties, especially from the Shiite factions. Kazem al-Issawi, security advisor to the Sadrist movement leader, Muqtada al-Sadr, in a meeting with media personnel, on Sunday evening, "If Mr. Muqtada heard that he (Allawi) gave to a party, particularly the (Shiite) factions, a ministry, then Iraq would turn him into hell and fall in three days." He stressed that the Sadrist movement will not be part of the future government in any way. Simultaneously, the Sadr militia practiced repression and intimidation against the demonstrators in the sit-in, VIP Street, where the religious leader's supporters attacked civilians, resulting in deaths in recent days. Al-Sadr supported Allawi's assignment despite the protesters refusing to name him, as he is close to the ruling elite. His stance caused a rift in the protest movement that had been supporting it since its inception. Al-Issawi warned against obstructing the birth of Allawi's government, explaining that "if pressure occurs and his government is not approved, we will surround the green (region)" where major government and diplomatic headquarters are located. "They will accept them," they said. It is assumed that Allawi, who was named prime minister after a difficult consensus reached by the political blocs, will present his formation to Parliament before the second of next March to vote on it, according to the constitution. There is political competition between Sadr and the popular crowd, which includes armed groups that were part of the Shiite leader’s movement before, before they separated from him. Allawi, 65, a former communications minister, was named on February 1, amid a consensus among political rivals after arduous negotiations on influential positions. Although al-Sadr announced his support for the appointment of the former minister, Al-Issawi stressed that the current "is not adopted by Allawi, but what happened is that we were given no objection." Since October 1, 2019, Baghdad and the Shiite-dominated cities of the south have witnessed demonstrations calling for early elections and fighting corruption, which prompted former Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to resign. Al-Sadr faced criticism from the demonstrators after he changed his position more than once, starting with supporting the protests, to moving to the other camp and supporting Iran, until his supporters confronted the protesters in Najaf and Hilla, south of Baghdad, killing eight demonstrators. Al-Issawi stressed that the Sadrist movement is not opposed to the demonstrations in which around 550 people have been killed since its inception, but with "cleaning up" of it. "We are against the idea of breaking up (the protests). We are with their continuation but with cleaning and (inspection)," he said, after he said that there are those who "enter drugs" to their participants, stressing that the only red line is "the symbolism of Mr. Muqtada."تهديد-لعلاوي-الصدر-سيقلب-عليه-العراق-جحيما-ويسقطه-في-3-أيام-/533065.html

On Sunday, the deputy of the Al-Fath Alliance Fadel Al-Fatlawi confirmed that Prime Minister Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi has not yet decided the position of any minister within his new cabinet, while Allawi presented some names to the political blocs and rejected them for political reasons. Al-Fatlawi said in a statement to the "information", that "the political blocs rejected a number of names that Allawi gave within his cabinet to preserve them," noting that "Allawi has not decided any ministry until now and the debate is still ongoing in forming the new government." He added that "Allawi will present his ministerial cabinet before the end of the constitutional period for the House of Representatives to give him confidence," noting that "the House of Representatives will vote on a large part of the cabinet and it is unlikely that it will provide a full cabinet and pass quickly." Today, Sunday, the MP from the Al-Hikma Movement, Asaad Al-Murshidi, confirmed that Prime Minister-designate Muhammad Tawfiq Allawi assigned MP Al-Khalidi, his close associate, who supported his candidacy to take over as prime minister, to form a committee of deputies and advisers to conduct interviews with the new ministers.

  24. A parliamentary committee launches a decision to suspend all investment projects 11:28 - 09/02/2020 0 The information / Baghdad .. The Parliamentary Finance Committee warned, on Sunday, against the suspension of all investment projects during the coming months due to the delay in sending the budget, confirming the sending of the federal general budget for the year 2020, subject to the formation of a new government with a quorum. The committee’s rapporteur, Ahmed Al-Saffar, said in a statement to “Information”, that “there is no legal basis authorizing the caretaker government to send the budget bill to the parliament,” warning that “all investment projects are threatened to stop as a result.” Al-Saffar added, "The budget is a language of operational and investment numbers, and sending it requires a vote in the cabinet," stressing that "the repetition of the 2014 scenario will enter the country with a real disaster." The economic expert, Saleh Al-Hammash, ruled out earlier, voting on the budget during the first half of this year, indicating that the deficit rate will be lower than what was decided due to the lack of funding for some projects, but this will harm the Iraqi economy.

  25. American site: Iraq is on the verge of severe energy crisis Economie 2020-02-09 | 12:32 1,923 views With the deadline for the US renewal of the exemption allowing Iraq to import gas and electricity from Iran later this month, the three main players in this ongoing geopolitical saga have been preparing for all possible outcomes, and in fact, every country is seeking to achieve results that go beyond mere gas sales. The author, Simon Watkins, said in a report published by the American "Oil Price", that "the determination of the positions began in earnest last week through the confirmation of the head of the Iraqi Trade Bank, Faisal Al-Heims, that the bank will stop processing payments if the United States does not renew the exemption at the end of this month." . "This matter will affect the electricity payments of 1400 megawatts and 28 million cubic meters of gas coming from Iran, which Iraq needs to maintain the work of its main infrastructure," Watkins added . In this context, the energy demand in Iraq during the summer exceeds the local generation capabilities, and worse still, this is capable of causing major popular unrest in the country, and it seems that the continuous power outages were one of the motives of the widespread protests that erupted recently throughout Iraq. .اقتصاد/334032/موقع-أمريكي-العراق-مقبل-على-أزمة-طاقة-حادة
