Lebanese Army Intelligence currently surrounding @ALJADEEDNEWS building to arrest journalist Radwan Mortada.
Mortada is accused of insulting the army after a televised appearance where he criticized army chiefs’ handling of the ammonium nitrate, wondering if it was “stupidity.”

I am told the health minister didn’t host the gathering, wore a mask and didn’t stay long. But the message not to hold large gatherings stands. It’s dangerous. I wish the health minister a full recovery.

On January 6, Lebanese media reported that Health Minister Hamad Hassan hosted this large lunch, in defiance of his own government’s orders to avoid gatherings. Tonight he was hospitalized for covid.

The FBI did issue a warning that the assault on the Capitol would be violent, based on an online thread. "Get violent...Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die," it said. Raises new ?? about preparedness.

All change. The US Syria & acting ISIS coalition envoy @joel_rayburn is quitting with the end of the Trump admin. His predecessor @brett_mcgurk who resigned under Trump will be back in charge of the whole Middle East at the White House. By @joyce_karam

The clip, which some may find disturbing, shows the moment where a protester wearing a black, red and white cap climbs over the railing near the door, appears to pull an officer towards him, then drags him down onto the ground then down the steps by the back of his helmet.

Replying to @Josiensor: With every new video that emerges it becomes ever clear just how violent the rioters were.

My message to my fellow Americans and friends around the world following this week's attack on the Capitol.

Wow, this is wow. Arnie (an Austrian) talks about Kristallnacht and the "Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys" in video address about the storming of the US Capitol. "Not all of them were rabid anti-Semites or Nazis, many just went along, step-by-step"

Yet another #Israeli mock raid over #Lebanon, scaring everyone on this Sunday morning.
Consistent with all the mock raid they’ve conducted over the past weeks, these jets are extremely loud, low and sometimes visible to the naked eye.

3 million jobs have been lost since Trump took office in 2017, the worst job record under any presidency since 1939. (But the stock market is at record highs 🤔)
