Singapore Army - Commissioning of SAFARI Weapon Locating Radar (WLR)

The SAFARI Weapon Locating Radar (WLR) was commissioned this evening. Highly mobile and responsive, the SAFARI WLR enhances Army’s force protection against indirect fires.

Its commissioning today, held in conjunction with the turn-ops parade of the SAFARI WLR Detachment from 24 SA, marks a milestone in the Singapore Artillery’s 3rd Generation Transformation!

Chief of Army, MG Melvyn Ong, emphasised that the successful operationalisation of the SAFARI enables the Army to “leverage on technological advancements to enhance our capabilities while right sizing manpower demands”.

With the introduction of the SAFARI WLR, the battery size will be reduced from the usual 18 men crew to 11 men. The newest early warning technology of the SAFARI will also“strengthen our networked sense and strike capabilities” and ensure that our troops “will be better protected, more efficient and deadlier in the battlefield”.

Three Sharp Eye Radar Installed in Malaysia

Doppler processing of the radar returns provides coherent information concerning target velocity and enables the detection of very small and slow moving objects with a low Radar Cross Section (RCS). Through a series of electronic filters, the system is able to distinguish between targets of interest and sea, rain and land clutter.

In addition, with no magnetron required for the system, maintenance costs are significantly reduced.

Hamzah Akhbar, Regional Sales Manager for Kelvin Hughes, commented:
 “The success of our VTS radar in these three important Malaysian ports has clearly demonstrated the superior detection and tracking performance of SharpEye™ technology, particularly in adverse weather conditions where safety can’t be compromised. In response to the demand, we’re looking forward to the opportunity to enhance maritime safety and port security at other sites throughout the region.”

Philippines Interested in Indonesian Medical Support Ship

After purchasing two Strategic Sealift Vessel (SSV) warships from PT PAL Indonesia, the Philippine government is considering putting in another order for a medical support vessel from Indonesia’s state-owned shipbuilder.

During the 2016 Asian Defense & Security (ADAS) exhibition in Manila, Philippine Secretary of National Defense Delfin Lorenzana held a discussion with Brig. Gen. Jan Pieter Ate from the Indonesian ADAS delegation on Indonesian defense products.

“The Secretary of National Defense and the Philippines Navy chief of staff are impressed with the medical support vessel that will be fit for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) operations,” Jan Pieter, the Defense Ministry’s director of the defense industry and technology, told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.

According to Jan Pieter, the Philippine secretary of defense had shown a deep interest in the 123-meter vessel and spent a lot of time looking at the vessel’s mock-up.

It was reported that the Philippines had also put in an order for the CN235-200 and N212i aircraft from state-owned airplane maker PT Dirgantara Indonesia in 2015.

The three-day ADAS 2016 exhibition ends on Friday.

According to its official website, ADAS 2016 attracts exhibitors from around the world and works closely with the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) and the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG).

Wait for escalation. Pakis will not tell how many of their GOOD TERRORISTs were killed.

The denial by Denialstan that terrorists were killed is in itself a confirmation that there have been terror casualties among Paki's good terrorists. 

6 terror camps destroyed, at a short distance of 3 km from LoC.

At least two Pakistan Army soldiers were killed as Indian and Pakistani troops exchanged fire over the Line of Control in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Thursday.

The exchange of fire began at 2:30am, ISPR said, and continued till 8:00am.

"Pakistani troops befittingly responded to Indian unprovoked firing on the LoC in Bhimber, Hotspring Kel and Lipa sectors," the statement said.

Three Turkish soldiers wounded in ISIL drone attack in Syria

Three Turkish soldiers were slightly wounded in a drone attack by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) jihadist group on Sept. 27, on the 35th day of Euphrates Shield operation in Syria.

Military sources said ISIL militants detonated a bomb-laden mini drone in the Wukuf region targeting Turkish soldiers. Three were slightly wounded in the attack and transferred to the border province of Kilis for treatment.

Meanwhile, Turkish warplanes also destroyed four buildings used by the jihadist group in the Tal-ar, Amiriyah and al-Eyyubiyah areas with Turkish-made HGK-1 bombs.

In addition, Turkish artillery units deployed on the border also fired 57 artillery rounds at 30 ISIL targets, according to the military.

The advance of Ankara-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters to the south is continuing in the Azaz and al-Rai regions.

The Turkish General Staff said in a statement that a total of 1,337 targets have been hit since the beginning of the operation on Aug. 24.    

The Euphrates Shield Operation in Syria aims at bolstering border security, supporting U.S.-led coalition forces and eliminating the threat posed by terror elements in the region, especially ISIL.

Saudi Arabia not paying foreign workers their dues

Foreign doctors and nurses not being paid in Saudi hospitals

Foreign workers block roads in Saudi Arabia

Scores of foreign staff at Saudi Arabian company the Saad Group blocked a road in the Eastern Province on Tuesday as part of a protest over not being paid in more than seven months.

Footage sent to MEE showed a large group of mainly Indian and Pakistani workers stopping traffic on the road that links the town of al-Hasa to the Eastern Province’s capital Dammam

Saudi billionaire Maan al-Sanea owns the Saad Group, which made headlines last week when staff at one of its hospitals began an open-ended strike over not being paid since May.

On its website the Saad Group says it runs “diversified businesses” in the Gulf and has investments around the world.

The foreign workers striking on Monday have not been paid since February amid rumours that the company’s owner has been siphoning off money for himself rather than paying wages.

An American doctor at the Saad Specialist Hospital who is on strike said on condition of anonymity: “We think the owner is taking 600,000 riyals ($160,000) a day in cash out of the hospital."

Saad employees told MEE they do not understand where company revenues are being spent, as last month private healthcare firm Bupa paid the firm 13 million riyals ($3.7 million) in dues.

None of that money has been paid out in wages, workers told MEE.

“The cash just kind of disappears,” the American doctor said. “Nobody is really sure why there is an issue.”

The company's billionaire owner has drawn the ire of staff because of his continued lavish parties, for which he regularly flies in famous singers from around the world. The American doctor said the owner has planned another party for Tuesday evening.

"The owner is having parties while staff at his company can't feed their children or send them to school," the doctor said. "It is disgusting."

An official source told MEE last week that King Salman is eager to resolve the hospital's situation, and that local authorities in the Eastern Province have given the owner three options: he either fixes the problem, partners with another Saudi billionaire, or the government takes over the hospital.

Saudi Arabia is in the midst of a financial crisis because of a collapse in oil revenues that account for 80 percent of government income. On Tuesday the government announced that it was cutting ministerial and public sector salaries and slashing bonuses and perks in order to cut the budget deficit.

In 2015 the government posted a record $98bn budget deficit, causing many of the kingdom’s construction projects to be suspended or cancelled.

On Monday a second hospital in the Eastern Province went on strike as staff have not been paid since May. Doctors and nurses at the Dr Fakhry & Alrajhi Hospital in Khobar City blocked their clinic's corridors while holding signs calling for the owners to pay up.

Striking staff were unwilling to go on the record about their protest due to fears of being punished by authorities. However, one staff member on Tuesday told MEE on condition of anonymity that everyone at the hospital was paid after yesterday's strike action.

The employee said staff believe the delay in paying wages was down to the Ministry of Health not paying the owner for completed government work.

The hospital's owner is Saudi businessman Abdul Rehman Saleh Al-Rajhi. He also owns another private hospital in Khobar called Procare. No one from the either hospital responded to repeated requests for comment.

Staff at the Saad Specialist Hospital remain unpaid and told MEE they have continued with their strike action.

Public protests and strikes are banned in Saudi Arabia but unpaid workers across the kingdom have increasingly risked arrest by holding demonstrations and strikes amid desperate attempts to get their wages.

One Pakistani employee at the Riyadh-based construction firm United Seemac told MEE on Monday it has become a “do or die” situation for workers in the kingdom.

Kamran Bhatti, a designer from Islamabad who has worked in Saudi Arabia for five years, said he was moving from the south-east city of Khamis Mushait to the capital Riyadh to unite with other unpaid colleagues.

Despite the risk of arrest, Bhatti said workers are determined to get their money.

“There is no other option left and I really don’t know what will happen there [in Riyadh],” he said. “But I feel more of us will be in Riyadh and this will make us more united and more effective.”
