U24 News | The Russian bombing in Idlib was a message to Turkey

Russia has many cross-business interests with Turkey and also many geopolitical differences. Therefore, no direct confrontation corresponds. But there are subtleties: for example, a massive bombardment of Turkish-supported militias in Syria.

Burial of the 80 Proturkish Syrian rebels who died after Russia’s attack on their training camp in Idlib.

Russia and Turkey are heavily involved in some of the biggest ongoing conflicts, including Libya, the Caucasus, and Syria. In none of these territories do their interests coincide, but rather they support sides facing each other.

Neither in the Middle East nor in the Mediterranean do they come face to face. You have to take care of the forms.

But Russia was tasked with laying waste to Turkish-backed rebel fighters in northwestern Syria.

Idlib

Idlib is a head city of a homonymous governorate.

Idlib is located 60 km from Aleppo.

Idlib contains the ancient city of Ebla, and was a supplier of soaps made with oil and cotton fabrics to Istanbul, when it was a colony of the Ottoman Empire (Turks).

Since 2017, the Tahrir Al-Sham (Al Qaeda) militia, with Turkish support, has remained in control of Idlib, defeating Ahrar al-Sham.

Tahrir Al-Sham means Organization for the Liberation of the Levant, often called the Nusra Front.

But in the region, since 2014 there is Faylaq Al-Sham (Legion of Sham), as opposed to the government of Bashar al-Asad as it is to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis).

The Legion of Sham was formed from 19 different groups, 3 some of which had been affiliated with the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood.

In 2015, along with other large Aleppo-based rebel groups, the Sham Legion established the joint Fatah Halab group, which received US BGM-71 TOW anti-tank missiles.

But then he got closer to Turkey.

In May 2018, together with 10 other rebel groups in northwestern Syria, the Legion organized the National Liberation Front. Then the Brigade of the Martyrs of Islam was also added.

In September 2018, Russia began bombing Idlib.

The attack

On 10/26/2020, Russian fighter jets attacked a Legion training ground near Kafr Takharim in Idlib governorate.

No fewer than 78 pro-Turkey combatants were killed in the attack, and no fewer than 100 wounded.

The director of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdel Rahman, called the attack the strongest attack since the beginning of the ceasefire.

With so much activity in the region, the Russians targeted the area of ​​Jabal al-Dweila, a military training ground for Faylaq Al-Sham.

This “was not a Russian attack on the Syrian opposition, but a direct hit against Turkey and a message for Ankara,” Charles Lister, director of the US-based Middle East Institute, told Al Jazeera.

Turkish columnist Semih Idiz agreed that the timing of the Russian airstrike is “significant” because it coincides with days when Ankara is “showing its muscles” in the Middle East and the Caucasus.

“The Armenian-Azeri dispute is a particularly sensitive issue because it is happening in what Moscow believes is its backyard and sphere of influence,” Idiz told Al Jazeera.

But Idiz acknowledged Ankara’s inability to solve the problem of groups in Idlib that Moscow perceives as “radicals.”

Russia, a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and Turkey had negotiated a fragile ceasefire in Idlib, which has been in place since March, but the Russians identified several skirmishes involving Turkey, just as it does in favor of Azerbaijan against Armenia, Russia’s military ally.

And something worse happened to watch out for: Moscow has expressed dismay at reports that Turkey has sent Syrian mercenaries to fight alongside Azerbaijani forces in Nagorno-Karabakh.

It is the same procedure that Turkey used in Libya, sending thousands of Syrian fighters to fight for the Government of National Accord recognized by the United Nations, against Russian-backed forces.

The radiography

The Turkish-backed National Liberation Front alliance includes 11 factions of the Free Syrian Army (SLA), all supported by Ankara.

But it excludes Hay’et Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a former al-Qaeda affiliate who currently controls large swaths of the province.

When Russia and Turkey signed the agreement in 2017, one of the main conditions set by Moscow was that Ankara should dissolve HTS.

This has not happened. Turkey has not eliminated the armed group because it cannot or does not want to.

Russia has used the presence of Tahrir al-Sham to attack Idlib.

“This latest attack is Russia’s way of saying that time is running out,” said Turkish columnist Semih Idiz, referring to the agreement between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Dareen Khalifa, a senior analyst at the International Crisis Group, agreed: “The deal is flawed as it is based on the premise that Turkey would hunt down some of the strongest rebel formations in the area.”

Until now, Russia attacked to keep adversaries away from the key M4 road in northern Syria, used by Turkish and Russian forces for joint patrols.

However, in recent months, joint patrols have stopped.

“Stopping these patrols is a clear indication that the ceasefire agreement … is gradually eroding, leaving only the military option on the table again,” Khalifa said.

Will Ankara let what happened without retaliation?

Idiz said Turkey may want to “retaliate” by attacking the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, a Russian ally.

Following the Russian attack, Syrian opposition fighters fired hundreds of missiles and artillery shells at government posts in northwestern Syria.

The truth is that Russia has already sent a message. Another may occur shortly.

U24 News | 007 is a temptation for Netflix and Apple but it depends on the covid-19

Both Netflix and Apple believe that “No Time to Die” could raise hundreds of millions of dollars by streaming it, but MGM declined to comment on the comments, adding that the film “is not for sale.” How much longer will it take to reopen movie theaters around the world? And will the public return en masse to the rooms when they reopen? So far the only major release case was “Tenet” but the box office result was meager. All this will undoubtedly be on the table of the James Bond franchise as the days go by and the financial issue may become more complicated.

James Bond and a challenge to American cinematography.

“No Time to Die” is the 25th. James Bond film, produced by Eon Productions, with Daniel Craig in its 5th. and last performance in the role of the British spy that Ian Fleming invented.

The story is by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, regular writers of the franchise since the Fleming stories ended: Bond enjoys a quiet life in Jamaica but his old friend Felix Leiter of the CIA arrives to the rescue of a scientist kidnaped.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., owned by Sony, received offers – from both Netflix and Apple – to modify the marketing system for the feature film.

Is pay-per-view a possibility?

MGM still resists that possibility and will continue betting on theaters. But now a different analysis begins: time, financial costs, the term of the pandemic, the arrival of the post-pandemic, the vaccine against covid-19 …

Both Netflix and Apple believe that “No Time to Die” could raise hundreds of millions of dollars by streaming it, but MGM declined to comment on the comments, adding that the film “is not for sale.”

The truth is that the film is finished and you have to pay those who financed the film.

Then, the film industry is intensely debating what the collection model for premieres should be in case the pandemic is more extensive than imaginable.

“The release of the film has been postponed until April 2021 to preserve the theatrical experience for viewers,” said a representative from MGM.

Here’s a possible date, but will there be standard cinemas in April 2021?

Netflix and Apple declined to comment on the rumor.

Amazon Studios said it is not in talks to acquire the film.

The ‘cans’ of the film were prepared for their premiere in April 2020. Then it was passed to November, and it is already known that it is necessary to postpone it again.

Although theaters have begun to reopen, consumers are slow to return.

Simultaneously, studios have been reluctant to release their biggest films.

Getting the rights to “No Time to Die” would have been a huge blow to a streaming service.

Now, the film had a production budget of $ 250 million. Here are several questions:

** Does the funding structure of the Bond movie hold up?

** How much could be speculated to earn for the streaming movie?

The horror movie “Antebellum” was released on premium home video in September.

“Mulan” debuted on Disney + for a $ 30 fee.

Apple got the movie “Greyhound,” with Tom Hanks. It debuted in July.

More than half of SMEs fear for their survival, according to a survey

LONDON, Oct 22 (Reuters) – More than half of the small and medium-sized companies that together employ two-thirds of Europe’s workers fear for their survival in the next 12 months, according to a survey released Thursday by the consultancy. McKinsey.

The survey was conducted in August, ahead of the current acceleration of new coronavirus cases across Europe that is forcing governments to impose new restrictions on activity and sparking speculation about new national lockdowns.

The results come at a time when warnings about an impending wave of corporate bankruptcies are multiplying and when the International Monetary Fund and other bodies urge the governments of the continent to redouble state support to help companies weather the pandemic. of coronavirus.

The McKinsey study, based on surveys of more than 2,200 companies in five countries – France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom – found that 55% expected to close by September next year if their income remained at the levels current.

With the current trend, one in 10 small and medium-sized companies is expected to declare a default in six months.

“This is a substantial burden on the financial sector,” the report’s co-author Zdravko Mladenov said of one of the impacts of such an eventuality, which would also raise unemployment and block further investment in the economy.

Economists polled last month by Reuters forecast the euro zone economy to grow just 5.5% next year, after a drop of around 8% this year, but warned that even that uneven recovery was vulnerable to a shock. further spread of the virus.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are defined as those with 250 or fewer employees.

In Europe, SMEs employ more than 90 million people, but their small size makes them vulnerable to liquidity crises. In Spain, for example, 83% of the 85,000 companies that have collapsed since February had fewer than five workers on their staff.

Public aid measures across the continent, such as credit guarantees or moratoriums on loan payments, have so far kept thousands of struggling companies afloat. But as those measures have in some cases been terminated, the German Bundesbank and the Bank of England are among those warning of mounting insolvencies.

“Policy makers must do whatever it takes to contain the pandemic and its economic damage, and not withdraw support prematurely to avoid a repeat of the mistake of the global financial crisis,” the IMF said on its blog this week. (here)

“For companies, policies must now go beyond supporting liquidity and ensure that insolvent but viable companies can continue to operate,” he added, citing measures to facilitate debt restructuring or to inject capital in the case of companies. viable.

The return of China and the ships of India take the port of Valencia to historical figures

21/10/2020 05:00

Ahead of

He port of Valencia in the last two months it has become a positive anomaly within the Spanish pandemic economy. In an environment of generalized decline in productive and commercial activity, the maritime enclave accumulates two consecutive months of historical records in freight traffic and container movement (TEU) thanks to the recovery of its two main customers, United States and China, but, above all, to the strong increases in trade by sea with the markets of India, Turkey or Canada.

The Valencian terminal, the one with the highest volume of traffic in Spain, combines ‘import-export’ exchanges with what is known as transit movements, large container ships that use the port as a stopover for other smaller ships to reload and Redistribute merchandise to other European docks. In September, according to data released by the Port Authority of Valencia (Valenciaport), 477,194 containers were stowed, the highest figure in that month since there are records. It is the second consecutive record, after more than half a million TEU last August.

So far in 2020, the total figures are still lower than those of 2019. The halt in international trade at the start of the pandemic, in February and March, was noticed in all global ports and in maritime traffic. But the recovery of China, whose locomotive has been reactivated and whose sales to Spain already exceed those of Germany, and the growth of other issuers or recipients of goods such as Algeria (+ 14.13%), India (+ 10.11%) , Canada (+ 36.83%) or Italy (+ 26.84%) explain the strong rebound in the last two months. United States and ChinaIn that order, they continue to be the main clients, although not yet with the same figures of 2019. They are followed by Algeria and Turkey, without counting on the movement that occurs between the Spanish ports themselves.

Victor Romero. Valencia

The Chinese stoppage and the increase in traffic with the United States explain the change in the ranking in the first four months. The PAV delays the award of the expansion and cuts the budget

“In the accumulated of the year [enero-septiembre], the total merchandise handled by Valenciaport amounts to more than 58.4 million tons, which represents a decrease of 5.21% compared to the same period of the previous year, although the gap is narrowing, since it is two points less than the accumulated data for August, when the decrease was 7.41%, and more than three points lower than the negative 8.85 points in July. A circumstance that is also repeated in TEU traffic, which in the first nine months of the year reached 3,929,306, 5.35% less than the accumulated in 2019, but two points better than the accumulated in August and almost the half of the accumulated fall of 9.94 points that was registered at the end of July. These are percentages that are already half of those registered before the summer, so if the trend continues, the year could end in positive figures both in containers and in tons managed “, they point out from the port authority, which presides Aurelio Martínez.

The good figures contrast with the stagnation of Spanish foreign trade. While the port of Valencia It grew in August at a rate of 7%, Spanish exports plummeted in the same month by 9% and imports even more by 17%. In the case of the autonomy that the port hosts, sales of products abroad experienced a better performance, with a slight growth of 1.7%, thanks to the agricultural sector and the partial reactivation of production at the Ford factory in Almussafes (Valencia).

That the port of Valencia is able to grow in a national environment of slack in foreign trade gives clues about its leadership position in the Western Mediterranean. The site is in the process of awarding the concession for its northern macro-extension, with an estimated investment of 1,000 million euros and which the shipping giant aspires MSC through its subsidiary Terminal Investment (TIL), with which it operates and develops container terminals. However, the new infrastructure project has yet to receive approval from Puertos del Estado, the state company that presides Francisco Toledo, after the changes introduced in the initial planning in February of this year.

ITP Aero agrees with the unions the departure of up to 163 workers from Zamudio

Related news

The aeronautical company ITP Aero and the unions CCOO and UGT have reached a pre-agreement for job adjustment which includes the departure of 121 employees from the Biscayan factory in Zamudio with a temporary contract. In addition, 42 early retirements have been agreed, according to union sources.

These early retirements They will be mandatory for those over 58 years old, with a supplement of 85% for salaries below 50,000 euros gross, and 75% for those that exceed that figure.

In total, they will leave the Biscayan factory, the main of the group, 163 employees, compared to management’s initial plans to lay off 194 workers.

The third agreed measure is that a temporary employment regulation file (ERTE) will be applied that will affect the entire workforce for the next 14 months, until December 31 of next year, with a maximum of 45 days of unemployment for each employee.

This ERTE will be applied from November 2, provided that the staff ratifies the preliminary agreement in a vote that will take place next Tuesday.

The ELA union, which has a majority on the committee at the Zamudio plant, has rejected this pre-agreement because it considers that the company has achieved “more than it wanted at the beginning of the negotiation: it has managed to lighten the workforce and has obtained a hidden hourly pocket with ERTE, which will make the workday more flexible”.

For this union, after announcing the largest shareholder, Rolls Royce, its intention to sell ITP SAU, the company seeks to reduce the workforce and reduce labor costs to facilitate its sale.
