Ray McGovern : Mossad in the Pentagon? MikeRivero

In a significant escalation of accusations, Russian officials blamed the United States for providing the missiles used in a deadly Ukrainian strike on Sevastopol in Crimea, resulting in six fatalities and over 100 injuries.

The Ukrainian military launched several US-made ATACMS long-range missiles armed with highly controversial cluster munitions on Russia’s Crimea on Sunday, resulting in numerous civilian casualties, the Defense Ministry in Moscow has said.

The strike was first reported by Sevastopol Governor Mikhail Razvozhaev. He said that the attack killed at least three people, including two children. The death toll later rose to four. According to Russia’s Health Ministry, 124 people were injured, including 27 children.

Brigadier General Kioumars Heydari discussed the potential for a widespread war with the Resistance Front, as suggested by some Israeli officials. 

He reaffirmed the strong capabilities of the Resistance Front. "Should the Zionist regime launch an attack on Lebanon and initiate a broad conflict with Hezbollah, the Axis of Resistance will not remain passive. A harsh and decisive response will be delivered to counter the Zionists' malice," he declared.

Heydari emphasized that the dynamics in the West Asia region have significantly shifted following Operation True Promise.

The military media of Hezbollah has published a new video showing vital Israeli targets “known only to the Israeli security system”.

This was released as Israeli officials are making threats to launch a full-fledged war on Lebanon although military experts say the Israeli occupation regime does not have the capability or manpower of doing so against a formidable Lebanese force. 

The Pentagon has refused to comment on the deadly Ukrainian cluster munition attack on a crowded beach in Sevastopol, Russia on Sunday, RIA Novosti has reported. The Ukrainian attack carried out with US-supplied ATACMS missiles killed at least four people, among them two children, and injured 151, according to local officials.

Four missiles were intercepted by air defenses, while a fifth deviated from its trajectory and detonated its cluster warhead over the busy Black Sea beach, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement on Sunday.

The series of leaks and statements in the past few days reflect the steady escalation on the Israeli-Lebanese front. To a great extent, the reciprocal threats are intended to deter the opposing side from launching a full-scale war, but it is not certain that they will achieve their goal. What is achieved are intensifying acts and warnings that are liable to deteriorate into a major escalation.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee where he tried, and failed, to sell the Biden administration’s spin that it is delivering for the American people by being tough on China.
