Headline: Iran leader calls Israel “rabid dog”, urges arms for Palestinians

Khamenei Repeats Israel ‘Rabid Dog’ Insult in Eid al-Fitr Speech. Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday called Israel a “rabid dog” for its attacks on Gaza, and urged Muslims to arm Palestinians to enable them to counter what he termed genocide.  Of Israel, he said: “This rabid dog, this rapacious wolf, has attacked innocent people and humanity must show a reaction. This is genocide, a catastrophe of historical scale.”

Headline: IDF hits over 70 Gaza targets in overnight strikes Headline:Heavy airstrikes pound Gaza after soldiers’ deaths

The IDF struck over 70 targets in Gaza overnight between Monday and Tuesday, including the home and offices of Ismail Heniyeh, head of Hamas’s political wing. Both buildings were used as a command center to manage terrorism, the IDF said.  Four mosques used to store weapons, a terrorism tunnel, and an underground rocket launcher located near a mosque were also attacked, the IDF added. Early on Tuesday morning, the air force hit a complex used by Hamas’s finance ministry that is used to manage and finance terrorism. The IDF also hit Hamas’s Al-Aqsa television and radio stations, used to incite against Israel, pass along messages to Hamas members, and to instruct civilians to ignore IDF warnings about the need to vacate areas in Gaza, the army said. Ten terrorists were killed in targeted strikes, the army added. Paratroopers came under fire from a Hamas cell inside Gaza, and returned fire, striking the gunmen. Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed concern about the reports of Israeli forces dropping leaflets over northern Gaza Monday evening warning tens of thousands of residents to leave their homes and evacuate to Gaza City, according to a statement released by his spokesman. “If true, this would have a further devastating humanitarian impact on the beleaguered civilians of those areas of the Gaza Strip, who have already undergone immense suffering in recent days,” it said. “The United Nations agencies present in Gaza do not have the resources on the ground to cope with, or provide assistance to, an enormous extra influx of desperate people.”

Headline: Hamas denies agreeing to 72-hour cease-fire

PLO official Yasser Abd Rabbo on Tuesday said all Palestinian factions were prepared to announce a unilateral 72-hour cease-fire in fighting between Israeli and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. According to Rabbo, the announcement was made with the consent of Hamas. However, Hamas spokespersons have denied these reports and said they do not agree with this announcement and that a cease-fire cannot exist when Israeli forces are inside Gaza. Israel did not immediately respond to the remarks. Earlier on Tuesday, Al-Arabia reported that a delegation comprised of various Palestinian factions reportedly arrived Tuesday in Cairo for talks on an Egyptian cease-fire initiative proposed two weeks ago to quell the fighting between Hamas and Israel. The delegation – including representatives from the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad – was slated to meet with Egyptian officials to discuss the draft truce, which Hamas and Islamic Jihad previous rejected and Israel accepted.

The titular head of Hamas’s military wing sent out a fiery missive Tuesday night, claiming his forces are “eager for death” and saying the terror group would not cease fighting until Israel lifted its blockade on Gaza. “Israeli soldiers are up against soldiers who are eager for death and united forces,” Mohammed Deif said in a recorded message broadcast on Hamas’s al-Aqsa TV. “The steadfastness of the Palestinian people is what will bring victory on the battlefield. The enemy is sending its soldiers to certain disaster.” Deif became commander of the Al-Qassam Brigades in July 2002

Headline: Son of Hamas Founder is a Christian Convert, Says Militants Target Civilians

The son of one of founding members of Hamas has spoken out against the militant organization and the way the group targets civilians.  Mosab Hassan Yousef is a Christian convert and author of Son of Hamas. In an interview with CNN, he said Hamas militants seek to take over the Middle East, and do not care how many lives are lost in order to do so.  “Hamas does not care about the lives of Palestinians, does not care about the lives of Israelis or Americans. They don’t care about their own lives. They consider dying for the sake of their ideology a way of worship,” Yousef said.  Though groomed from a young age to become a Hamas militant, Yousef became disenchanted with the mission of the group and adopted Christianity, losing everything he had in the process.  “In the mosques, Hamas taught us that without shedding innocent blood for the sake of the ideology, we wouldn’t be able to build an Islamic state. They were preparing us from the age as young as five years old. This is the ideology that Hamas was feeding us. And honestly it’s impossible almost for anybody to break through and see the truth and real face of Hamas and be able to leave at some point. As you see in my case, I had to lose everything just to say no to Hamas. And today when I look at the children of Gaza and I know what they’re fed, I know that they have no choice,” Yousef said.

The Palestinians launched their first rocket attack by night on metropolitan Tel Aviv. One rocket exploded in Rishon Lezion. Israel retaliated by bombing the empty residence of Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniya. Tuesday morning began with another massive Hamas barrage on Tel Aviv, Holon, Bat Yam, Yavne, Ness Ziona, Ashdod, Kiryat Malachi, Gedera, Rosh Ha’ayin and Rishon Lezion. One former general after another with vast experience in warfare against Palestinian terrorists, including the former defense minister and chief of staff, Shaul Mofaz, continue to warn Israel’s war leaders that leaving Israeli troops in stationary positions exposes them to attack. “An army must advance,” said ex-Gen. Israeli Sieff, former commander of the Gaza Division. “Treading in place puts them in danger.”

The spokesman, Sheikh Ali Dhere, blamed all the “nations of unbelief” who participated in the “aggression against Gaza,” such as “the Americans who stood by the Jews in their aggression against the Muslims in Gaza.” Dhere also blamed the United Nations for “protecting global unbelief” and for making do with “standing by as witnesses and condemning the crimes committed by the Jews in Gaza.” “The Jews are spread out throughout the world, and the Jews’ properties are spread everywhere. In light of this, the Muslims must attack the Jews and their properties in every place, and they must pray for their brothers in Gaza,” he said, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute

Democratic and Republican members of Congress scrambled Tuesday to seal a $225 million boost to Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system before they break this week for a month-long recess. As the Gaza war escalates, Israel is proving to be among the few subjects uniting lawmakers. Members of both parties have introduced legislation backing the Jewish state, condemning the Palestinian militant group Hamas and seeking a tougher Iran policy. Iron Dome is the priority, but the House and Senate are at odds over process.

Headline: Bennett: The world needs to step aside and let us finish the job

A top Israeli official wants President Barack Obama to stop meddling with the Jewish state during its conflict with Hamas in Gaza. Speaking to Israel’s Army Radio, Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel criticized Obama telling Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that there should be an immediate ceasefire in Gaza. “Leave us alone,” Ariel told Army Radio, directing his words at Obama. “Go focus on Syria.” Ariel told Army Radio that Israel’s offensive should be more aggressive. “It was obvious that international pressure would mount eventually,” Ariel stated. “We should have acted faster, harder and with more determination. The rocket threat needs to be tackled. The tunnel threat is being addressed, but it is not enough.” Ariel claimed that the pressure from the White House for an immediate ceasefire was “outrageous” and would “help Hamas,” according to Breitbart News. “We never thought it would be the Americans who would lead the pressure,” Ariel told Army Radio.

Damning evidence has emerged of US President Barack Obama’s dismissal of Israel’s position in favor of supporting the position of Hamas and its allies during ceasefire talks. A “senior US official” leaked an audio recording of a telephone conversation between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to Channel One. In it the 35-minute conversation, which took place on Sunday, the US President appears downright hostile at points, and even cuts off Netanyahu in the middle of his protestations over a one-sided truce proposal which would have seen Hamas receive all its key demands, but that Israel ultimately rejected. The following is an excerpt of the conversation, published in Hebrew by Channel One.

Syrian rebels pressed their advance Tuesday in the central province of Hama, as they tried to take out its military airport, a rebel commander and a monitor said. “The rebels are now nine kilometres (six miles) away from Hama military airport, which they want to put out of action,” said Rami Abdel Rahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. A rebel leader in the area, Yusef al-Hassan, said the airport was important because “that is where the regime makes its barrel bombs, and warplanes take off from there to carry out air strikes”. Barrel bombs have killed hundreds of civilians, especially in rebel areas of the divided northern city of Aleppo, in recent months.

The UK is to send a “full battle group” of 1,350 military personnel for exercises in Poland, amid rising tension with Russia over Ukraine. They will take part in Nato manoeuvres in October to support allies in Eastern Europe, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said during a trip to Warsaw. It is the UK’s largest such commitment to the region since 2008. Mr Fallon said Britain was playing a “central role” in responding to Russian actions in Ukraine. Some 350 armoured and other vehicles will be involved in the October exercises, known as Black Eagle. The UK has already sent RAF Typhoon jets to support Nato in the region following Russia’s annexation of Crimea and British personnel have taken part in small-scale Army exercises. The Black Eagle exercises will take place in addition to an already announced Nato exercise in Poland, Sabre Junction, in which UK troops will take part in August.

At least 22 civilians were killed Tuesday by shelling in two conflict-stricken cities in eastern Ukraine, local authorities said. The use of unguided rockets in fighting between government forces and pro-Russian separatist rebels has been taking a noticeably heavier toll in recent weeks and been criticized by rights groups. With turmoil raging across a wide swathe of the region, international investigators were again prevented Tuesday from visiting the site of the Malaysia Airlines jet shot down earlier this month. City hall in Luhansk, which is controlled by separatist rebels, said Tuesday that five people were killed when an old people’s home was struck by artillery fire. Russian television showed images of bodies in wheelchairs covered with blankets. Ukraine security spokesman Andriy Lysenko said that rebels had blocked the railroad out of Luhansk, barring residents from leaving the city.

Athil Al Najafi said. In a statement on July 26, Al Najafi said the brigades were comprised of tribes and other constituents in and around Mosul. The governor said authorities were trying to gain local support to sustain recruitment. “The people are determined to kick ISIL out,” Al Najafi said.

Headline: Iraq insurgents destroy key bridge

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria destroyed on Tuesday a key bridge on the highway leading north from Baghdad, a move that could further hamper Iraqi government efforts to battle jihadists. The destruction of the bridge, just south of the city of Samarra, cuts a vital supply line for the Iraqi army and will further dampen its hopes of retaking the city of Tikrit, further north. “Daash militants detonated a suicide truck bomb on the bridge over the Tharthar canal, destroying two spans,” a police colonel told AFP, using the Arabic acronym for the former name of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). An army source also said the bridge, guarded by army checkpoints at both ends, was destroyed.
The attack leaves the army and allied Shiite militias with only a secondary road that passes over Samarra dam bridge and is not suitable for the heaviest military vehicles.

Libyan forces on Tuesday battled Islamist militants with rockets and warplanes for control of an army base in the eastern city of Benghazi after at least 30 people were killed in overnight fighting. Intense fighting in Benghazi, Libya’s second city, and battles between rival militias in the capital Tripoli have pushed Libya deeper into chaos after two weeks of the fiercest violence since the 2011 civil war ousted Muammar Gaddafi.

The two soldiers and a national guardsman received treatment but their wounds were not serious enough to be admitted for more medical care, said a source in the hospital in Kasserine where the men were taken. A security source said the three men were in a helicopter fired on by an armed “terrorist” group as they flew over Mount Semmama.
The area is near the Mount Chaambi region, where for more than a year and a half Tunisian security forces have been hunting Al-Qaeda-linked jihadists who have launched bloody attacks on the army.

Morocco’s central bank governor said last month his country was working with the IMF on a new line of credit to replace a $6.2 billion two-year precautionary liquidity line, or PLL, that expires in August. The IMF liquidity line is aimed at countries with relatively good economic policies that still face balance of payments needs because of issues beyond their control. So far, only Morocco has used this type of program.

Headline: Turkey PM Erdogan returns US Jewish award in Israel row

urkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is returning an award he received in 2004 from the American Jewish Congress, which has accused him of “dangerous rhetoric” against Israel. Last week the New York-based lobby group said Mr Erdogan was “inciting the Turkish population to violence against the Jewish people”. It asked him to hand back the award, granted for Middle East peace efforts. Turkey’s ambassador to the US said Mr Erdogan would be “glad” to do so. Ambassador Serdar Kilic said Mr Erdogan should not be expected to turn a blind eye to Israel’s actions in Gaza and the West Bank. “Attempts to depict Prime Minister Erdogan’s legitimate criticisms of the Israeli government’s attacks on civilians as expressions of anti-Semitism is an obvious distortion and an effort to cover up the historical wrongdoings of the Israeli government,” Mr Kilic said in a letter quoted by the Turkish news website Hurriyet.

A “terror attack” in China’s western region of Xinjiang resulted in “dozens of casualties”, the official Xinhua news agency said on Tuesday, citing local police. It gave no further details about the attack in Shache County, Kashgar Prefecture, or why it was only being reported on Tuesday.

Headline:  Nigeria Quarantines Hospital as Ebola Spreads to Most Populous City

Nigeria has evacuated and quarantined a hospital in the city of Lagos after a patient died from Ebola, the first reported case to reach one of Africa’s most densely-populated countries. The number of Ebola cases continues to climb in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, where the virus has infected 1,201 people and claimed 672 lives since it was first reported in West Africa in February, according to the World Health Organization. But the emergence of the disease in Lagos, a city of 21 million people, has officials fearing a greater challenge to containment. Nigerian officials said that they were monitoring 59 people who came into contact with Sawyer, including doctors, nurses and people at the airport. However, the airline on which he arrived in Lagos had not yet released the names of passengers. Meanwhile, Obama administration officials said that U.S. President Obama was being updated regularly about the outbreak. Calling it a “very worrying epidemic,” National Security Advisor Susan Rice said the U.S. would continue to assist local and international efforts to combat the spread of the virus.

Headline: Flesh-Eating Disease Warning in Florida

Florida health officials are warning beachgoers about a seawater bacterium that can invade cuts and scrapes to cause flesh-eating disease. Vibrio vulnificus –- a cousin of the bacterium that causes Cholera –- thrives in warm saltwater, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. If ingested, it can cause stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea. But it can also infect open wounds and lead to “skin breakdown and ulceration,” according to the CDC. “Since it is naturally found in warm marine waters, people with open wounds can be exposed to Vibrio vulnificus through direct contact with seawater,” the Florida Department of Health said in a statement. At least 11 Floridians have contracted Vibrio vulnificus so far this year and two have died, according to the most recent state data. In 2013, 41 people were infected and 11 died. The proportion of skin and gastrointestinal infections in Florida is unclear, but a CDC spokesman said the ratio tends to be about 1-to-1. Florida isn’t the only state to report Vibrio vulnificus infections. Alabama, Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi have also recorded cases, and a 2013 outbreak linked to contaminated shellfish sickened at least 104 people in 13 states, according to the CDC.

A cholera epidemic has hit northern Cameroon, killing more than 200 people in less than a month.  The government of the central African nation and aid agencies say some of the affected persons are refugees fleeing the Nigerian militant group Boko Haram. Cameroon’s Far North regional delegate for public health, Dr. Rebecca Djao, says the death toll from cholera in hospitals has surged to more than 100 and deaths out of hospital are also estimated at more than a hundred. The epidemic follows heavy rains that triggered flooding. Cameroon’s Minister of Public Health Andre Mama Fouda  told VOA a majority of people infected with the disease are children under the age of five and women.

Virginia’s same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, one of more than 20 legal decisions around the country favouring gay marriage proponents since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the Defence of Marriage Act last year. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond is the second federal appellate court to overturn gay marriage bans, after the Denver circuit, and is the first to affect the South, where states’ rights have held particular sway for generations. More than 70 cases have been filed in all 31 states that prohibit same-sex marriage. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia allow such marriages.

All mobile phones logged into the Wi-Fi network at Helsinki Airport will be monitored by an in-house tracking system that identifies passengers’ real-time movements. The technology has been criticised by privacy advocate groups, but is said to be aimed at monitoring crowds and preventing bottlenecking at the airport, which sees around 15 million passengers a year, Bloomberg reports. About 150 white boxes, each the size of a wireless internet router, have been placed at various points around the airport. Equipped with tracking technology from the Finland-based retail analytics company Walkbase, each device is designed to collect the “unique identifier numbers” of all mobile phones which have Wi-Fi access switched on. Users wanting access to the WiFi network will be notified of the monitoring system before they log in to the network.

Headline: Third Massive Hole appears in Earth sparking Fears

It’s a little disconcerting to see massive holes opening up in the Earth, no matter the reason. A trio of large craters have formed in Siberia just days apart, and scientists are trying to figure out why it’s happening. According to the Moscow Times, the first two holes were found about 18 miles apart. Hole No. 1 was more than 160 feet wide and about 230 feet deep. The report adds that the second hole was much smaller. Now, a third hole has been discovered, east of the first two holes, in the Taymyr Peninsula, the Daily Mail reports. This hole is just 13 feet wide, the smallest of the three. Although the Yamal Peninsula is Russia’s biggest production area for the country’s gas supply to Europe, experts don’t believe any of the three holes were created by oil-production practices, the report also states. So what’s causing gigantic these holes to form? Sub-Arctic Scientific Research Center scientist Anna Kurchatova told the Siberian Times. As the globe has warmed, she said, the ice is melting and the gas is being released, causing an effect like a champagne cork popping off a bottle. These underground explosions are causing the holes, Kurchatova believes.

The National Weather Service has confirmed that a tornado touched down in the town of Limington, Maine. Meteorologist Tom Hawley said a team is in the field Tuesday to make measurements and to track the tornado’s path. Trees were uprooted, power lines were knocked down and a teenage boy was struck by lightning in Naples as the thunderstorm roared through the area Monday. Tornadoes are supposed to be a rarity in Maine but there have been several recent reports of twisters.  Earlier this month, a tornado touched down in St. Albans. Hawley said there also were reports Sunday of a waterspout over Sebago Lake but it caused no damage and couldn’t be confirmed.

An Al-Shabab Al-Mujahideen spokesman delivered a sermon in a Barawa mosque in Somalia on Sunday calling upon Muslims to attack Jewish targets everywhere, according to a report provided exclusively to The Jerusalem Post by the Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor of MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute). Speaking about the conflict in Gaza, Al-Shabab spokesman Ali Dhere said all of the “nations of unbelief” participated in the “aggression against Gaza,” mentioning specifically “the Americans who stood by the Jews in their aggression against the Muslims in Gaza.” Al-Shabab’s news agency Al-Shahada reported the sermon in which Dhere blamed Egypt for locking its borders with Gaza. He also blamed the United Nations for “protecting global unbelief” and for making do with “standing by as witnesses and condemning the crimes committed by the Jews in Gaza.” Dhere called upon Muslims to stand up and take revenge for their Muslim brothers in Gaza, saying: “The Jews are spread out throughout the world, and the Jews’ properties are spread everywhere. In light of this, the Muslims must attack the Jews and their properties in every place, and they must pray for their brothers in Gaza.”

Israel sees no need for another Gaza ceasefire, an Israeli official was quoted as saying on Monday, as tensions between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government and Washington flared over U.S. mediation to end the almost three-week-old war. U.S. President Barack Obama, phoning Netanyahu on Sunday, put pressure on Israel to hold fire unconditionally and appeared to link its core demand for Hamas to be stripped of cross-border rockets and infiltration tunnels to a peace accord with the Palestinians that is nowhere on the diplomatic horizon. Israel did not immediately respond nor publish what, if anything, was decided at the overnight security cabinet session. But Israel Radio quoted an unidentified government official as saying: “There is no need for any more ceasefires. Let Hamas stop firing first.”

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon reinforced the Security Council’s call for “an immediate and unconditional humanitarian cease-fire” in the Gaza war on Monday and demanded that Israel and Hamas end the violence “in the name of humanity.” The U.N. chief accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal of being irresponsible and “morally wrong” for letting their people get killed in the conflict. He urged them to demonstrate “political will” and “compassionate leadership” to end the suffering of war-weary citizens. The secretary-general said he had a long talk with Netanyahu on Monday morning and urged the Israeli leader to accept a cease-fire, and then address the root causes of the conflict. He said he has been in indirect contact with Mashaal through Qatar and Turkey which have good relations with Hamas, the Palestinian faction that controls Gaza. Israeli forces said they were firing only when fired upon while army engineers hunted infiltrator tunnels from the Gaza Strip’s eastern frontier. They accused Palestinians of firing 17 rockets across the border, causing no casualties.

Several Western journalists currently working in Gaza have been harassed and threatened by Hamas for documenting cases of the terrorist group’s involvement of civilians in warfare against Israel, Israeli officials said, expressing outrage that some in the international media apparently allow themselves to be intimidated and do not report on such incidents. The Times of Israel confirmed several incidents in which journalists were questioned and threatened. These included cases involving photographers who had taken pictures of Hamas operatives in compromising circumstances — gunmen preparing to shoot rockets from within civilian structures, and/or fighting in civilian clothing — and who were then approached by Hamas men, bullied and had their equipment taken away. Another case involving a French reporter was initially reported by the journalist involved, but the account was subsequently removed from the Internet.

As Hamas continued firing rockets at Israel, there were numerous incidents of rock throwing by Arabs throughout the country. Arabs threw rocks at Israeli drivers on several of the country’s main roads, including Road 2, the coastal highway. Arabs from the village of Jizr a-Zarka, located next to the highway, threw stones from a bridge over the highway at passing vehicles. No one was injured in the attacks. Two residents of the village were arrested. On Sunday night, Jerusalem police arrested 22 rioters from the village of Azariya who threw rocks at police, as forces attempted to quell a melee in which dozens of Arab residents faced off against them. The rioters were held overnight Sunday for questioning. According to a spokesperson for an Azariya community group, 375 Arab rioters have been arrested so far in July, with 135 of them indicted on various charges. A riot in Yatta, in the southern Hevron Hills, left three Arab rioters injured when they attacked IDF troops. Three other rioters were arrested. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of Arabs demonstrated on the Temple Mount Monday against the IDF’s operation in Gaza. The crowd, estimated at 45,000, shouted anti-Israel slogans, demanding that Hamas kidnap more soldiers, and swearing that they would “shed their blood for Gaza.”

Police put the number of worshippers at 45,000 people, with an AFP correspondent saying many were dressed in black t-shirts emblazoned with slogans reading “Gaza, supporting you is our Eid” and “We are all Gaza.” Others wore T-shirts proclaiming support for Hamas’s armed wing, the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, which has been locked in a 21-day confrontation with Israeli troops in Gaza. The conflict has so far claimed 1,036 lives in Gaza and 46 in Israel. Among the crowds was a young child on someone’s shoulders holding up a plastic gun. “Kidnap more soldiers!” they chanted. “Our blood for Gaza.” Police distanced themselves from the crowd which soon dispersed without incident, the correspondent said.

The meeting, chaired by MK Yoel Razvozov, saw representatives of Jewish communities and diplomats from countries including France, Greece, Hungary, Belgium, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Denmark, Austria, Germany and Italy speaking at a session which went well overtime but ended inconclusively. Vladimir Sloutzker, head of the Israeli-Jewish Congress, said starkly, “Never before since the Holocaust have we seen such a situation as today. We are potentially looking at the beginning of another Holocaust now.” “These events will only grow in scale across Europe,” he warned. Hebrew University Prof. Robert Wistrich said “There is no longer a facade of anti-Zionist expressions not being anti-Semitic. You just need to hear the rhetoric to believe. We need a much deeper discussion; we’re just at the outer layer of the problem.”

ISLAMIC State jihadists, building on vast land grabs in Iraq, have seized an army position in the Syrian city of ­ Hasakeh , a monitoring group says. On another front in Syria’s complex civil war, rebels seeking President Bashar al-Assad’s ouster captured a weapons depot in Hama province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. In the central city of Homs, a car-bombing killed seven people, the Observatory and state media said. In Hasakeh in the northeast, “IS jihadists took over the army’s (base) at Maylabiyeh” after a three-day battle, said the Britain-based Observatory. On Twitter, supporters of Islamic State, which first emerged in Syria’s war last year, celebrated the army position’s “liberation” at the hands of the jihadists. The latest advance came a day after the Islamic State took over another army position, in Raqa province, killing at least 85 regime troops there, including 50 who were executed after their capture. Over the weekend the ­regime recaptured the Shaar gas field in Homs province in central Syria, where Islamic State killed 270 people while taking the site.

Moscow has threatened to end security arrangements it has with the United States and the European Union should they impose additional sanctions as a result of what they claims is Russian “complicity” in aiding the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 by pro-Russian fighters in eastern Ukraine. In a strong statement, the Russian foreign ministry referred to the “slander” by White House press secretary Josh Ernest when he characterized as “Russian complicity” the downing of MH-17. “Judging by the relentless slander campaign against Russia organized by the American administration, they are being more and more guided by blatant lies when pursuing their foreign policy,” the foreign ministry said. The ministry said that intentions to extend the list of Russian officials and organizations affected by travel bans and the freezing of assets could bring an end to cooperation on such security issues as terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and organized crime.

Ukrainian armed forces mounted a major onslaught against pro-Russian separatist fighters Sunday in an attempt to gain control over the area where a Malaysia Airlines plane was downed earlier this month. Reports of the intensifying unrest in eastern Ukraine prompted a postponement of a trip to the site by a team of Dutch and Australian police officers who had planned to start searching for evidence and the remaining bodies. In the Netherlands, Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his government has rejected the idea of deploying armed troops to secure the crash site because there is no way they could achieve “military superiority” in a region where heavily armed pro-Russian rebels are battling Ukrainian government forces.

Iraqi police on Monday found the corpses of 15 people, including three women shot in the head in militia-style killings, a bloody start to the holiday marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, security sources said. Fears have been growing of a relapse to the dark days of sectarian civil war which peaked in 2006-2007 since Sunni militants seized large swathes of the north last month, building on gains by comrades made in the west of Iraq. Iraq’s US-trained and funded army unraveled in the face of the lighting advance, and Shiite militias now rival government forces in their ability to confront the group formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

An Iraqi government raid on jihadist targets in a flashpoint town southwest of Baghdad killed 17 people on Monday, including at least three civilians, medical and tribal sources said. “Bombardment targeted the Fadhiyya district at 1:00 am,” Sheikh Mohammad al-Janabi, a tribal chief from Jurf al-Sakhr, a town 60 kilometres (40 miles) from Baghdad, told AFP. The army and allied Shiite militia, such as Asaib Ahl al-Haq, take up positions in the town during the day but often pull back at night, which allows insurgents to plant roadside bombs. The loss of Jurf al-Sakhr would threaten government control over one of only two main roads linking Baghdad to the southern Shiite heartland, including the holy cities of Karbala and Najaf. While ISIS fighters have so far been repulsed in their efforts to move closer to Baghdad, the kind of violence that plagued the capital long before the onslaught has continued. Car bombings, mostly targeting police checkpoints but also restaurants and shops, roadside bombs, “sticky bombs” concealed on parked vehicles and remotely detonated, assassinations and kidnappings occur almost daily.

Militants from the Islamic State group blew up a mosque and shrine dating back to the 14th century in Mosul on Sunday, local residents said, the latest casualty in a week that has seen a half dozen of the Iraqi city’s most revered holy places destroyed. Mosul residents said the Prophet Jirjis Mosque and Shrine was bombed and destroyed by the radical jihadist group. They spoke anonymously to The Associated Press for fear of reprisal. The complex was built over the Quraysh cemetery in Mosul in the late 14th century, and included a small shrine dedicated to Nabi Jerjis, the Prophet George. Among the mosques destroyed in Mosul last week were the Mosque of the Prophet Sheeth (Seth) and the Mosque of the Prophet Younis, or Jonah, said to be the burial place of the Prophet Jonah, who in stories from both the Bible and Quran is swallowed by a whale. The militants claim that such mosques have become places for apostasy, not prayer.

Muslim extremists from China’s far western region of Xinjiang have gone to the Middle East for training and some may have crossed into Iraq to participate in the upsurge of violence there, China’s special envoy for the Middle East said on Monday. China has repeatedly expressed concern about the upsurge in violence in Iraq and the march of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which has seized much of the north of the country as Baghdad’s forces there collapsed. ISIL has renamed itself the Islamic State and proclaimed the establishment of a caliphate on land it has captured in Syria and Iraq. “These extremists come from Islamic countries, Europe, North America and China. After being immersed in extremist ideas, when they return home they will pose a severe challenge and security risk to those countries,” added Wu, who has 40 years of diplomatic experience in the Middle East and speaks Arabic.

Taliban fighters are scoring early gains in several strategic areas near the capital this summer, inflicting heavy casualties and casting new doubt on the ability of Afghan forces to contain the insurgency as the United States moves to complete its withdrawal of combat troops, according to Afghan officials and local elders. The Taliban have found success beyond their traditional strongholds in the rural south and are now dominating territory near crucial highways and cities that surround Kabul, the capital, in strategic provinces like Kapisa and Nangarhar. Their advance has gone unreported because most American forces have left the field and officials in Kabul have largely refused to talk about it. The Afghan ministries have not released casualty statistics since an alarming rise in army and police deaths last year.

Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama’s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed the proposals on condition of anonymity.

Unlike in previous confrontations between the police and parishioners that have unfolded in recent months, the congregants did not offer resistance. “We didn’t want to get in a fight with them, but obviously what they did was illegal,” said the Rev. Qu Linuo, a pastor from a nearby church, who was among the crowd of believers who held an overnight vigil before the police arrived. On Friday, congregants at the Wenling Church in the city of Taizhou faced off with as many as 4,000 police officers but ultimately failed to prevent the removal of two crosses from atop their building. One congregant said as many as 40 people were detained during the standoff.

Headline:  Rare tornado touches down outside Boston

A sprawling set of storms tore across the country Sunday, flattening homes in Tennessee, dumping softball-sized hail in Michigan, and triggering tornado warnings from Kentucky to Connecticut. By Sunday night, one injury was reported in Tennessee and one tornado was confirmed — it touched down briefly in Wolcott, Conn., at 12:50 pm said Kevin Roth, a meteorologist with The Weather Channel. Tornadoes were also reported in Tennessee and West Virginia Sunday afternoon and evening. Just north of Knoxville, Tenn., near the Kentucky border, the Claiborne County emergency manager reported that 10 homes had been “completely destroyed.” It was unclear if the damage was from a tornado or wind, Roth said. Roth said the storms were unusual for this time of year.

  • At least 43 rockets hit Israel.

  • The IDF struck over 90 terror targets in the Gaza Strip.
  • 31 terror tunnels were uncovered by IDF forces since July 17

Headline: Analysis: Stage three of Operation Protective Edge looms

Following the entry of ground forces, next up in the IDF’s campaign in Gaza, if the military should launch it, will be the systematic destruction of Hamas’s military assets across the Strip. From the moment it was launched, Operation Protective Edge has been a gradual effort, designed to extinguish Palestinian mass rocket attacks through a carefully planned deterioration of Hamas’s strategic position. The first phase – intensive air strikes on rocket launchers, weapons-production centers and command-and-control centers – was followed by the second stage, the entry of ground forces and their highly complex and challenging task of destroying Hamas’s tunnel network. Should Israel launch its third phase, deterrence will become a secondary goal, and the IDF will be instructed to attack and destroy Hamas’s military assets all over Gaza.

Headline: Fresh West Bank clashes break out as Israel girds for ‘day of rage’

Headline: Israel’s US Ambassador Smashes Biased Coverage on CNN

Angry clashes erupted Friday in the West Bank, as Palestinian leaders called for a “day of rage” in response to the shelling of a United Nations shelter that killed 16 people. At least four Palestinians have been killed in outbreaks of violence in several parts of the West Bank, according to medical sources. The call for a massive follow-up to what were already some of the largest West Bank protests in years comes as diplomats scrambled to find a cease-fire proposal that would satisfy mortal enemies Israel and Hamas and end more than two weeks of violence that has claimed more than 800 lives, most of them civilians. Israeli police posted additional officers in Jerusalem ahead of Friday’s protests, spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Twitter. Police had deployed between 3,000 and 4,000 officers to prepare for expected violence, The Jerusalem Post newspaper reported.

Hamas’ spokesperson in Gaza spoke on Thursday night’s riots in East Jerusalem saying, “This is an important development. The West Bank is fighting. It’s important for these protests to expand and spread to the entire West Bank.” Hamas leaders, both in Gaza and abroad, have called for the start of the third intifada – or Palestinian uprising – after violent riots with live fire erupted throughout Jerusalem and the West Bank last night. Violence flared up as thousands of Palestinians took to the streets, rioting and protesting Israel’s actions in Gaza. Approximately 10,000 people marched from Ramallah to Jerusalem, where they clashed with Israeli police.

Headline: Heavy barrage fired at Israel on Friday night

Headline: Hamas says it fired three rockets at Israel airport

A heavy barrage was fired from the Gaza Strip at Israel on Friday night, with rocket alert sirens sounded in various cities and communities in central Israel, the Sharon plains, Samaria and southern Israel. The Iron Dome intercepted two rockets fired at Ashdod. Earlier, the Iron Dome intercepted one rocket fired at Ashkelon, while another landed in an open area. Three rockets hit outside communities in the Eshkol Regional Councils, one near Netivot and three in open areas in Sdot Negev. The Iron Dome also intercepted three rockets fired at Ashdod, while two hit open areas in Sha’ar HaNegev and Sdot Negev. In a massive rocket barrage fired at Israel in the afternoon, Iron Dome missile shot down at least five rockets over Ashkelon, Hof Ashkelon Regional Council and the Be’er Tuvia regional council; some six rockets exploded in open area. In two seperate attacks between 11:30am to noon, Hamas claimed responsibility for firing 5 rockets at Tel Aviv. It was confirmed that 2 of the rockets were shot down in the second of these attacks. Iron Dome also intercepted one rocket over the Sharon region while one fell in an open area. Meanwhile, Hamas said Friday it fired three rockets at Tel Aviv airport, a day after U.S. and some European airlines had resumed flights after a two-day suspension. “At 11:45 am, the Qassam Brigades bombarded Ben Gurion airport with three M75 rockets,” a statement from Hamas’ armed wing said. An Israeli military spokeswoman confirmed rocket fire from Gaza, though she declined to specify how close it had come to Ben Gurion. “We can confirm two rockets were shot down over metropolitan Tel Aviv,” she told AFP.

Headline:  Hamas Prepared Attack That Would Bring Israel to Its Knees, Israeli Defense Officials Say

Israel’s Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu revealed on Thursday that Hamas was intending to attack Israel from dozens of tunnels in a coordinated simultaneous attack. At the beginning of Thursday’s special cabinet meeting the prime minister said, “These tunnels enable the enemy to open a multi-pronged offensive and carry out a massive terror attack inside Israel.” According to security officials cited by Israeli news website NRG, the political echelon needs to give the military more time to eliminate the tunnels since “we are now not even halfway through.” The attack Hamas was planning, the officials say, “would have made Israel drop to its knees.” They added that even the tunnels destroyed until now takes away from Hamas a strategic asset the terror group has been working on for years. The IDF’s Southern Command assessment is also that more time is needed, and in fact it was on the Southern Command’s recommendation that the government on Wednesday decided to reject a proposal for a humanitarian ceasefire. Intelligence officials assessed that such a truce would allow Hamas time to reorganize and what Israel needed to do now is push the terror group with its back against the wall so the leaders there will ask themselves whether it was wise to continue the large-scale fighting they initiated.

Headline:  Gaza officials accuse Israel of war crimes, filing complaint at the Hague

Top Palestinian officials have filed a complaint to the International Criminal Court, accusing Israel of war crimes in Gaza. Palestinian Justice Minister Saleem Al-Saqqa and Ismail Jabr, the Gaza court public prosecutor, started legal proceedings Friday via a Paris-based lawyer over the 18 days of fighting between Hamas and Israel that’s left 800 Palestinians and 35 Israelis dead. They accuse Israel of war crimes, including apartheid, attacks against civilians, excessive loss of human life and colonization. To process the complaint, the Hague-based court must first rule if it has jurisdiction in the Palestinian Authority. The territory isn’t a U.N. member but became an observer in 2012, a status the ICC chief prosecutor said was required for Palestinians to sign up to the court.

Israel on Thursday called out a United Nations aid agency for falsely claiming that the Israeli Defense Forces did not permit civilians to evacuate a Gaza school where 15 people were killed in an Israeli attack, reports the Washington Free Beacon. Multiple IDF sources rejected UNRWA’s claims and characterized them as outright falsehoods when reached by the Washington Free Beacon. “For two days we were trying to move people out of that school in particular and the Beit Hanoun area in general,” said an IDF official who was involved in the interactions between the IDF, UNRWA, and International Red Cross (ICRC) leading up to the incident. The official continued, “This morning we sought a ceasefire in the area and a humanitarian evacuation of civilians, but Hamas refused—because they wanted to keep civilians in the area to protect their fighters who were firing on the IDF.” The claim by Gunness and UNRWA that the IDF did not respond to their request to evacuate civilians, the source said, is “a flat-out complete and total lie,” the official told the Free Beacon.

Chairman of the Bnei Akiva Yeshivas and head of Yeshivat Or Etzion, Rabbi Haim Druckman, gave a special blessing to troops serving in Operation Protective Edge in an interview with Arutz Sheva on Friday. Rabbi Druckman referred to the concept of milchemet mitzvah, whereby certain wars are Torah-mandated for men to serve – such as to defend the Jewish people from attack. “Our soldiers are fighting God’s War,” he said. “This war determines out very existence in this country.” “This war is for real peace, as told about in Isaiah: ‘And your peers shall have swords … and no nation shall lift up a sword against your nation, which is not knowing another war.’,” he added. ”Israel does not strive for another war, for deaths; each Iron Dome cost a fortune – who needs it?” he continued. “But there is evil in the world and we must fight that evil.” Rabbi Druckman had no doubt who will win this war, as Operation Protective Edge enters its eighteenth day. “Our ancestors fought, Abraham fought, Moses fought,” he reassured. “Our aspirations are indeed that ‘the wolf will live with the lamb’ [citing the verse in Isaiah about the Messianic era - ed.] but if the sheep does not deal with the wolf, nothing will be left of the sheep.” “This is a holy war by all accounts, a war of salvation and for the existence of Israel in its homeland,” he said.

His Majesty King Abdullah on Thursday reaffirmed Jordan’s stand with the Palestinian people, with all its capabilities, in facing the fallout of the Israeli aggression on Gaza and called on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities to secure protection for the Palestinians and stop the Israeli assault.He warned against the consequences of continued Israeli unilateral measures, especially in the city of Jerusalem, where sustained acts of aggression have been directed at Al Aqsa Mosque and the surrounding areas. Abbas briefed King Abdullah on the latest developments in Gaza, voicing his appreciation for Jordan’s continued efforts to reach a ceasefire and for providing humanitarian assistance and medical care to the people in Gaza. In statements to the press following the meeting, Abbas said his meeting with the King was necessary, adding that contact between the two sides has been continuous during the recent conflict. Abbas said the two sides agree on the need for a ceasefire as a first step, to be followed by negotiations, and added that the Egyptian initiative is the one that should be adopted. On the possibility of a ceasefire, he said: “So far, there is hope for a ceasefire.” Also on Thursday, while chairing part of the Cabinet session convened to discuss the repercussions of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, the King reiterated that the Israeli aggression must stop as soon as possible, stressing Jordan’s rejection of Israel’s policy of collective punishment and targeting civilians. “We are working in coordination with our Arab brothers and the international community through the UN Security Council to stop the bloodshed and end the violence and any further escalation.” He stressed Jordan’s continuous support in providing all forms of humanitarian assistance to alleviate the suffering of “our people in Gaza”.

Lebanese Foreign Affairs Minister Gebran Bassil Friday condemned Israel’s actions in Gaza, and ISIS’ against Iraq’s Christians, as “war crimes,” saying that the government has approved the ministry’s request to the ICC to launch probes into the recent events. For the first time in its diplomatic history, Lebanon sent requests to the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor to investigate crimes committed by Israel in its offensive on the Palestinian enclave and those committed by ISIS in Mosul, Bassil said, noting that the violations fall within the court’s jurisdiction. Bassil equated ISIS with Israel, saying both sides refrain from recognizing international law and that the Jewish state sought to “replace the Palestinian, Arab, Levant identity in the east — where diverse groups have lived together and recognized each other’s freedoms — with the Jewish identity of elimination.”

Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz ordered on Friday 100 million riyals ($26.6 million) in medical aid to the Gaza Strip, the Saudi Health Ministry said. Health Minister Adel Faqih said the aid would address the emergency needs of the growing number of injured civilians in the Israeli offensive, which has so far killed more than 800 Palestinians. The move came a week after the king ordered 200 million riyals ($53.3 million) in humanitarian aid. Those funds were directed to paying for medicine and medical equipment to treat “victims of the brutal Israeli aggression and bombing of the Gaza Strip,” said Finance Minister Ibrahim al-Assaf.

Headline:  Gunmen kill Egypt security commander in Sinai

Gunmen shot dead two senior police and army officers on Friday in Egypt’s restive Sinai Peninsula where the military is battling an Islamist insurgency, security officials said. Militants have stepped up their attacks, mostly against security forces, since the army ousted Islamist president Mohammad Mursi last July and the government launched a deadly crackdown on his supporters. The assailants opened fire on the police and army brigadiers as they were driving home in the Sheikh Zuwaid region. Attacks by militants have killed almost 500 police and soldiers since Mursi’s overthrow, the government says. Last week, 22 soldiers were killed by gunmen at a checkpoint in Egypt’s western desert, in the deadliest single assault since Mursi’s ouster.

A Syrian Air Force strike on the border with Lebanon killed around 20 Syrian rebel fighters on Friday, security sources said, in the latest spillover of violence into the area. The strike hit just inside Lebanese territory in a barren area east of the town of Arsal, the sources said. Earlier this month at least four people were killed and seven wounded in overnight air raids by Syrian forces on mountains and valleys near Arsal. Syrian rebel fighters have frequently crossed into Arsal, a Sunni Muslim town where residents have often been sympathetic to fighters trying to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is from Syria’s Alawite minority.

Jihadists from the Islamic State group killed at least 50 Syrian soldiers in an ambush on Friday, summarily executing most of them after their capture, a monitoring group said. The assault in Raqa province, the jihadists’ Euphrates valley stronghold, came amid their fiercest assault yet on Damascus-held territory. The deaths added to 74 already killed in the offensive across the north and northeast, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. “At least 50 soldiers were ambushed, some of them were killed in fighting but most of them were beheaded,” Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP. IS militants claimed the toll was as high as 75.

Russia has begun supplying military helicopters and fighters jets to Iraq, a report said Thursday, as Iraq’s defence minister visited Moscow to press for equipment to thwart a jihadist offensive. “A number of contracts with Iraq have entered into force and are being fulfilled,” the Interfax news agency quoted a source in Russia’s defence export establishment as saying. Deliveries of Mi-35 helicopter gunships and Su-25 fighters that provide close air support for ground troops have begun, added the source. Iraq also has contracts for Mi-28 attack helicopters and mobile Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air and anti-aircraft artillery systems. Russia’s ambassador to Baghdad, Ilya Mogunov, had previously said he believed up to 10 Sukhoi fighter jets would be delivered by the end of the summer.

The U.S. Department of State unveiled new intelligence Thursday that Russia plans to provide “heavier and more powerful, multiple rocket launchers to the separatist forces in Ukraine,” and that Russia is firing from across the border at Ukrainian military positions. Deputy spokesperson Marie Harf described the new information as adding to the “preponderance of evidence” that Russia is continuing to provide the separatists with advanced surface-to-air weaponry. On Wednesday, declassified intelligence analysis and imagery was made public regarding Russia’s role in providing the weaponry that shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 on July 17 over restive eastern Ukraine.

Headline:  Ukrainian Troops Recapture Rebel Stronghold of Lysychansk

The Ukrainian government said Friday it regained control of the separatist stronghold of Lysychansk after several days of fierce fighting, a move it said would pave the way to take back a string of other important rebel-held positions. Kiev has reported steady progress in its fight against the separatists. But its efforts have been hampered by what it says is a flow of weapons and artillery fire from across the border that hasn’t stopped even after last week’s downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17—an allegation the U.S. backed on Thursday but that Russia has repeatedly denied. The Ukrainian military has made several key gains in the past week, taking back 10 towns and nearly surrounding the vital rebel-held cities of Luhansk and Donetsk, Ukraine’s National Security and Defense council said. On Friday, soldiers raised the country’s flag above Lysychansk after pushing out a powerful militia headed by a top rebel commander, it said. “The armed forces of Ukraine have been able to deal the rebels powerful blows on several fronts,” council spokesman Col. Andriy Lysenko said.

Iraq’s senior cleric on Friday urged political leaders to refrain from clinging to their posts – an apparent reference to Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, who has defied demands that he step aside. Speaking through an aide who delivered a sermon after Friday prayers in the holy city of Kerbala, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani said leaders should show flexibility so that political deadlocks could be broken and Iraq could confront militants. Last month, Sunni militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant swept through northern and western Iraq, posing the biggest challenge to Maliki’s Shi’ite-led government since the departure of U.S. forces in 2011. Critics say Maliki is a divisive figure whose alienation of Sunnis has fueled sectarian hatred and played into the hands of the insurgents, who have threatened to march on Baghdad.

The call for a caliphate, which ISIS paves the way for, will not cease. When the infidels and the apostates realized what ISIS had paved for them, they attempted to stop ISIS with all their power, particularly with their evil scholars, who began to give their religious edicts against ISIS for the advantage of the Sahwa in order to increase people’s hate against ISIS. Despite the attempts of deception, Mujahideen from Yemen, Somalia, Egypt, Tunisia, and Palestine came to champion the cause of ISIS led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. A media representative of Tehrik-i-Taliban, was asked about their stance on ISIS. They answered “our stance on ISIS and the groups fighting the group is abundantly clear. We support those Mujahideen who fight for the sake of the survival of the caliphate. We do not support groups fighting with the support of the intelligence services, even if they are from our country”. Taliban militants in Afghanistan have warned ISIS insurgents fighting in Iraq to ‘avoid extremism’ in a plea for unity among jihadists.

Headline:  Afghan Taliban Leader condemned Israeli airstrikes that have killed hundreds of Palestinians

Gunmen in central Afghanistan executed 15 civilians belonging to the Shia Muslim minority, a rare sectarian attack in a country struggling with intense political violence. Shortly after 12 a.m. Friday, a group of armed men stopped three minibuses carrying civilians through Ghor province and ordered all 32 passengers to disembark, Afghan officials said. After checking their ID cards, the assailants separated the ethnic Hazaras from the group and executed them on the side of the road. “The Hazaras were killed and the rest were released,” said Anwar Rahmati, the governor of Ghor. “This is a crime against humanity and it’s horrific.” It is common for Afghans to travel overnight, especially during Ramadan. Hazaras, Afghanistan’s third-largest ethnic group, are overwhelmingly Shiite Muslim and have long faced discrimination in this Sunni-majority country. But—unlike in neighboring Pakistan—ethnic and religious divisions, while deep, have rarely turn violent in Afghanistan. Meanwhile , Mullah Omar also condemned Israeli airstrikes that have killed hundreds of Palestinians as Israel fights Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip. Hundreds of Afghan protesters took to the streets in Kabul on Friday to show solidarity with the Palestinians. They chanted slogans against Israel, the U.S. and the U.N., saying the world needs to do more to protect the innocent men and women of Gaza.

With Tunisia reeling from the worst attack on its soldiers in more than 50 years, Algeria this week offered military equipment, troop reinforcements along the shared border and other counter-terrorism resources to its neighbour. But the biggest threat may lie elsewhere. A one-eyed Algerian former cigarette smuggler and al-Qaeda ally now running his terror fiefdom from Libya may have instigated the slaughter of Tunisian troops last Wednesday. In early July, reports emerged that Mokhtar Belmokhtar (aka Laaouar) met with the leader of the terrorist group hiding out in Jebel Chaambi. Laaouar gave new instructions to Uqba Ibn Nafi Brigade chief Khaled Chaieb (aka Abu Sakhr) to plan attacks and assassinations inside Tunisia, Algeria’s El Khabar reported, citing security sources. During iftar on July 16th, some 60 assailants opened fire with machine guns and rocket launchers on two army checkpoints. The al-Qaeda-affiliated brigade claimed responsibility for the attack, the deadliest for Tunisian military forces since 1961. The assailants came to Jebel Chaambi two months ago from Libya, bringing heavy weapons to Tunisia aboard 4×4 vehicles, Mosaique FM reported Sunday. Algeria also warned Tunisian authorities that a major operation to smuggle weapons from Libya was prepared two months ago, African Manager reported on Tuesday (July 22nd), citing Elbilad.

Two groups of protesters – one rallying against what they call the Israeli occupation of Jerusalem and the other looking to put an end to what they regard as an anti-Israeli march – will stand opposite each other and yell slogans across the police barrier in Berlin on Friday (25.07.2014). That is a likely scenario for the start of Quds Day, an annual event calling for protest of Israel’s occupation of Jerusalem. Berlin police announced their intention to strictly enforce restrictions among the protesters, including forbidding slogans that incite violence or the burning of flags or effigies. In past years, Qud Day was a peaceful rally. But since 2000, every year’s protest has seen clashes and aggression. Recently, however, demonstrations against Israel’s offensive in Gaza have included anti-Semitic slurs, and even attacks against Jews.

The International Monetary Fund has trimmed its global economic growth projection for 2014, projecting a slower advance in the United States and a less optimistic outlook for several emerging markets. The Washington-based IMF cut its world forecast Thursday to a 3.4 percent advance this year, down three-tenths of a percentage point from its earlier projection. But with somewhat stronger growth expected in advanced economies in the coming months, the IMF maintained its 4 percent growth projection for 2015. In the update of its world economic outlook, the IMF said “downside risks” remain a worry for the world economy, including the possibility that geopolitical turmoil could lead to sharply higher oil prices. It said the global economic advance could be weaker for a longer period of time “given the lack of robust momentum” in advanced economies, even though policy-makers have been keeping interest rates for borrowers at very low levels for an extended period.

Headline:     Drought drains critical US water supply

A huge volume of fresh water has disappeared from the drought-struck south west of the US in the past decade in what researchers say is a startling sign of the fragility of one of the country’s most important water supplies. Almost 65 cubic kilometres of water has been lost since late 2004 from the Colorado River Basin, an area roughly the size of France that is a vital but heavily used source of water for more than 30m people and 4m acres of farmland. The amount lost was nearly double the volume of the Colorado River’s Lake Mead, the largest man-made reservoir in the US, according to a study by scientists using data from Nasa satellites that can measure changes in water levels. “This is a lot of water to lose. We thought that the picture could be pretty bad, but this was shocking,” said the study’s lead author, Stephanie Castle, a water resources specialist at the University of California, Irvine. More than 75 per cent of the loss was due to the rapid depletion of groundwater from underground aquifers that many farmers depend on for irrigation, especially during droughts like the one that has afflicted parts of the south west for the last 14 years.

Residents also said a strange smell wafted through the air. “The really weird thing is that we have been able to catch fish because the water is normally so clear,” one local villager commented on China’s microblogging site Weibo. Inspectors from the Wenzhou Environmental Protection Bureau said they have not found the cause of the incident, although water samples seem to indicate the suspicious color was a result of illegal dumping in the river. “We suspect that somebody dumped artificial coloring in the water because he thought the typhoon yesterday would cause heavy rain, and nobody would notice [the color],” Jianfeng Xiao, Chief of the bureau told China News.

Headline:  STRANGE SITUATION

In the middle of Solar Max, the sun has slipped into a state that resembles Solar Minimum. Sunspot numbers are low; the sun’s X-ray and radio output are depressed; and NOAA forecasters estimate a scant 1% chance of solar flares during the next 24 hours. The quiet could be disturbed during the weekend, however, by the expected return of two old sunspots currently transiting the farside of the sun.

Israeli Islamist Leader: Gaza Will Rub Israel’s Nose in the Mud

Headline: Israel Swears in New President Amid Gaza War

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shimon Peres ended his term as president of Israel on Thursday — a man who symbolizes hopes for peace capping a seven-decade public career amid the brutal reality of war. Peres handed the ceremonial but high-profile presidency over to Reuven Rivlin, a legislator from the hawkish Likud Party. Although the globe-trotting elder statesman has made clear he has no intention to retire, few expect him to hold public office again, after a career that dates back to the 1940s and has seen him occupy almost every major government position in the land. “I did not imagine that in the last days of my presidency I would be called upon, once more, to comfort bereaved families,” Peres, 90, said in his speech at the handover ceremony. He blamed the Islamic militant group Hamas for starting the current war by firing barrages of rockets at Israel, but also emphasized that “Israel is not the enemy of the people of Gaza.” Rivlin’s theme was similar: “We are not fighting against the Palestinian people, and we are not at war with Islam,” he said. “We are fighting against terrorism.” In sharp contrast to Peres, however, Rivlin has long been an opponent of efforts to establish a Palestinian state.

Headline: Israel surprised by number, sophistication of Gaza tunnels

While rockets and mortar fly through the sky in Gaza and southern Israel, the focus of the Jewish state’s military is underground, on the warren of tunnels they say allow Hamas operatives to move freely in and out of the Palestinian territory committing acts of terror. Pictures released by the Israel Defense Forces show tunnels, some primitive and others sophisticated enough to include walls and ladders, running under the border from the Hamas-controlled district before they were intentionally destroyed. More than 60 access shafts leading to 28 tunnels have been uncovered since Israel’s ground operation — dubbed Operation Protective Edge — began on July 8.

Headline:   Source of deadly attack on Gaza UNRWA school remains unclear

Headline:  US defends aid to UNRWA despite rocket caches

The source of a deadly attack on a United Nations-run school in Gaza on Thursday remain unclear, with the Palestinians blaming Israel for the deaths, and the Israeli army saying it does not know whether Israeli shelling or a Hamas rocket hit the facility, killing a reported 15 people. The Israeli army says the army fired mortars in the area of the UNRWA school in Gaza after Israeli troops were shot at from the area of the school. Palestinian sources said 15 people were killed when the school in Beit Hanoun was hit Thursday afternoon. However, army spokesperson Moti Almoz told Israel’s Channel 2 on Thursday evening that the military does not know whether it was Israel Defense Forces fire that hit the school. An IDF source said that army representatives made contact with UNRWA and the Red Cross over the past few days to inform them that troops were shot at from near the school, and that the IDF would return fire toward the source of the shooting, which was located near the school. The IDF stated that Hamas rockets had landed in the Beit Hanoun area during fighting with its forces, and that those rockets may be responsible for the deaths. The IDF Spokesman later issued a statement that it is investigating the matter of the hit on the school. Terrorists opened fire at IDF personnel from the area of the school, according to the spokesman, and soldiers returned fire toward the source of the shooting. Likewise, stated the spokesman, Hamas fired at the school, and despite repeated warnings and appeals to international authorities to remove civilians from these areas of fighting, they were not evacuated.

It was expressed clearly in Khaled Mashal speech,” he said. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu opened a special cabinet meeting at the Knesset in Jerusalem Thursday by vowing that the IDF’s defensive operation in Gaza would continue “at full strength”. “The IDF has struck a significant blow to Hamas,” the prime minister said, adding that “we will continue at full strength in both the air campaign and land campaign.” Netanyahu said that the main emphasis of the IDF operation was to locate and destroy the vast network of “terror tunnels” dug by Hamas from Gaza into Israel in order to facilitate attacks against Israeli security forces and civilians.

Gaza Arab terrorists continued firing rockets at Israel Thursday night, with a rocket fired at Eilat. The Iron Dome system intercepted the rocket. No one was injured and there was no damage from the resulting shrapnel. It’s possible the terrorists ware aiming not for Eilat, but for the Ovda Airport outside the city, where some international flights had been rerouted after the US Federal Aviation Administration banned US airlines from flying to Ben Gurion Airport. Hundreds of flights were canceled as European airlines followed the FAA’s lead. In response, the Transport Ministry opened Ovda to accommodate planes, especially those that had been flown out to destinations in Europe to allow Israelis to return home. On Thursday, the FAA rescinded the ban.

US Secretary of State John Kerry spoke Thursday to his counterparts in Qatar and Turkey, which support the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, as he pressed for a Gaza ceasefire. A day after he flew to Israel and cited signs of progress, Kerry was hunkered down in Egypt – which drafted a truce proposal to end the Israel-Hamas conflict that was rejected by Hamas – as he reached out to regional officials by telephone, aides said. The top US diplomat spoke to the foreign ministers of Qatar and Turkey in the hope that the two countries would use their influence to encourage Hamas to accept a ceasefire plan, which the terrorist group has so far rejected, a US official said. Kerry also spoke again with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, after meeting him for two hours late Wednesday in Tel Aviv. Unlike previous days, Kerry did not make any public appearances as new violence raged in the Gaza Strip. Overnight IDF forces struck 90 terrorist targets and discovered several “terror tunnels” into Israel.

Headline:   Pakistan Calls to End Gaza Blockade

Pakistan on Thursday called for an immediate end to the blockade of Gaza to allow humanitarian relief to reach Palestinians as the death toll in the besieged territory rose to more than 740. The appeal came a day after Pakistan voted along with other UN Human Rights Council members to launch a probe into Israel’s offensive in the territory, with rights chief Navi Pillay saying the Jewish state’s military actions could amount to war crimes. The 47-member council backed a Palestinian-drafted resolution by 29 votes, with Arab and fellow Muslim countries joined by China and Russia, plus Latin American and African nations. “The blockade of Gaza must be ended in order to allow access of any humanitarian assistance,” Pakistan’s most senior foreign office bureaucrat Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry told a press briefing. “And that is why even in the UN Security Council and later in UN Human Rights Council we called for humanitarian pauses,” Chaudhry said. “Unless this blockade is lifted we cannot send any relief assistance,” he continued.

In an emergency session of the UN’s Human Rights Council Wednesday, Israel came under attack from UNHRC head Navi Pillay for possible “war crimes,” and from dictatorial regimes including Iran (which denounced Israel for alleged “state terror”), Syria (which said Israel harbored “a racist and criminal mentality”), Venezuela (which spoke of “attempts to exterminate the Palestinian people”) Algeria and Sudan (both of which said Israel was engaged in “massacres and genocide”). UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer, a staunch defender of Israel against UN bias, told those assembled that all of Israel is under “brutal and relentless” attack. “Never before in the history of Israel’s seven decades of existence have its men women and children come under such a massive aerial assault,” said Neuer, “and never before in the history of nations has a free society come under such a sustaimned bombardment from a terrorist organization.” He was interrupted by the representatives of Iran, Syria, Egypt, “Palestine,” Cuba and Venezuela, who tried to silence him, but was defended by the U.S., Canada and Israel.

His Majesty King Abdullah on Wednesday called for an immediate ceasefire of the Israeli aggression in Gaza, cautioning against the consequences of the catastrophic campaign in the region, according to a Royal Court statement. Meanwhile, at the UN Security Council, Jordan on Tuesday submitted a draft resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire, protection for civilians and the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza. The draft text, seen by AFP, calls for lifting the Israeli blockade of Gaza and renewed efforts to achieve a two-state peace deal for Israel and Palestine. During a meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who is visiting Jordan as part of a regional trip in an attempt to push for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, King Abdullah highlighted Jordan’s contacts with various Arab, regional and concerned international parties and through its membership in the UN Security Council to push for passing the draft resolution. At the meeting, King Abdullah asserted Jordan’s support for the Egyptian initiative to arrive at a ceasefire as soon as possible, underlining the need to rally international support for it. King Abdullah strongly condemned the Israeli aggression and urged the international community to shoulder its responsibility to secure protection for the Palestinian people, provide them with medical and humanitarian aid, and support Jordan’s efforts by facilitating aid delivery and the treatment of the wounded people of Gaza.

A local Jordanian Salafi group pledged allegiance to the Islamic State on Wednesday, while denouncing al-Qaida leaders as illegitimate. The Jordan Times reported that the Sons of the Call for Tawhid and Jihad, a youth movement, criticized Salafi leader Sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi – who has come out against ISIS but supports al-Qaida – and Abu Qatada, a radical cleric who was extradited from Britain last year, for refusing to recognize the Islamic caliphate of the Islamic State. The group demanded that Maqdisi “return to righteousness.” The influential Jordanian cleric warned earlier this month that the Islamic State’s declaration of a caliphate in Iraq and Syria would deepen already bloody infighting among jihadists.

Headline:    Jihadists launch broad assault on Syria army
The jihadist Islamic State group launched multiple attacks on government-held territory across northern and northeastern Syria on Thursday, a monitoring group said.  The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said it was the first time that IS, accused by rival rebel groups of focusing its formidable firepower more on them than on the Damascus regime, had launched such coordinated assaults on army positions.  The jihadists went on the offensive near the main northern city of Aleppo, in Hasakeh province in the northeast and in Raqa province around their Euphrates valley stronghold, the Observatory said.  IS has been buoyed by sweeping victories north and west of Baghdad last month that prompted it to declare a pan-Islamic state straddling Iraq and Syria.  In Hasakeh province, the jihadists killed 11 soldiers in an attack on an army base, the Observatory said.  They also launched a brazen assault on the ruling Baath party provincial headquarters in Hasakeh city, over which witnesses said they saw the IS flag flying.  The mainly Kurdish city has remained under government control, although much of the surrounding countryside is under the control of Kurdish militia who have also been battling the jihadists.

During the last major conflict in and around Gaza in November 2012, Larijani said Iran was “proud” to have provided “both financial and military support” to Hamas.

Headline: ISIS attacks besieged army base in Raqqa

Fighters from ISIS stormed parts of a besieged army base in Raqqa province Thursday, setting off clashes that left dozens killed or wounded on both sides. The assault, which began shortly after midnight, came a week after ISIS fighters captured a gas field in the central province of Homs, an attack that left more than 200 people dead. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an anti-regime group, said the assault began with two suicide car bomb attacks. It added that Syrian army helicopters attacked ISIS positions around the base, known as Division 17. By the end of the day, a total of 14 airstrikes had targeted the vicinity of Raqqa, and a Syrian general had been killed in the clashes, the Observatory said. The Local Coordination Committees, another activist group, reported 12 raids around Division 17 and the nearby provincial capital of Raqqa, which has been controlled by ISIS since last year. It said army helicopters were dropping barrel bombs around the base.

Headline: Rival Libyan militias clash in Tripoli, Benghazi

Heavy black smoke rose over southern Tripoli on Thursday after rival militias exchanged artillery and rocket fire in a battle over the Libyan capital’s airport that has killed more than 50 people in nearly a fortnight of fighting. Sporadic blasts echoed across the city from the morning in clashes that have deepened fears of post-war Libya becoming a failed state, with a fragile government unable to control heavily armed brigades battling for power. Fighting in the capital and the eastern city of Benghazi is the heaviest since the 2011 war that ousted Muammar Gaddafi. It has closed most international flights to Libya and has prompted the United States to pull out embassy staff. A health ministry official in Tripoli was unable to provide details of Thursday’s casualties because he could not contact hospital staff in the area. One local doctor said at least 30 injured people were at his Tripoli hospital on Wednesday.

Headline: Erdogan says Israel should face trial over Gaza assault

A growing number of Turkish universities have decided to cut off relations with Israeli universities, with the number rising to 111 in three days. Originally, the rectors of 87 Turkish universities announced in a joint statement on Sunday that they would cut off all academic, cultural, and social ties with their Israeli counterparts, if they do not condemn Israeli actions in Gaza, the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak reported on Wednesday. “In Gaza, there has been a great tragedy of humanity. The whole world is not reacting to it as if they were all deaf and blind. The Israeli government has lost its discernment and attack cruelly by putting the children in front of guns,” read the public announcement. “In Ramadan, the holy month of Islamic world, people are having their iftar meal through the bombs with tears, grief and sorrow. Unfortunately, everyone, who closes their eyes to these cruel people and this kind of cruelty, is a sharer of that violence,” it said.

Headline: Turkey sends reinforcements to Syrian border in fight with Kurdish fighters

Turkey has expanded operations to the Kurdish enclave in neighboring Syria.  The Turkish Army has deployed reinforcements along the border of the Kurdish enclave in northern Syria.  Officials said the reinforcements were meant to stop the flow of Kurdish fighters from Iraq to reach the Syrian enclave.  “The Kurdish Workers Party has sent in hundreds of fighters to help the Syrian Kurds battle the Islamists,” an official said.  On July 22, the Army reported a battle with Kurdish militias in the southeastern Turkish province of Sanliurfa. The Army said three soldiers and six Kurdish fighters, including those from the Kurdish Workers Party, or PKK, were killed on July 21 as the latter sought to cross the Syrian border.  “At least six members of People’s Defense Forces and PKK were considered to be killed during the clashes,” the army said.  The government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has opposed the Kurdish enclave along the Syrian border with Turkey. Officials said the government as well as military feared that the enclave could become another insurgency haven for the PKK war.

Headline: German Gaza protests turn violent, raising anti-Semitism fears

Violence, hate speech, self-immolation: the Middle East conflict has reached Germany, with observers worrying that riots during recent Gaza demonstrations are an expression of deeply rooted anti-Semitism. EurActiv Germany reports.  In several German cities, thousands of people have taken to the streets to demonstrate against Israel’s military action on the Gaza Strip.  In Hannover, Göttingen and Essen, protestors attacked pro-Israeli counter demonstrators and anti-Semitic slogans were chanted at rallies.  The Central Council of Jews in Germany was “shocked” at the “explosion of angry and potentially violent anti-Semitism”.  One would “never have considered it possible that anti-Semitic shouts would be heard on German streets and chanted in a most primitive way”, said the Central Council’s president Dieter Graumann.  Particularly in the capital city, such occurrences are quite frequent these days.

Headline: Armenia to become full member of EEU in January: Armenian PM

Armenia will become a full member of the the Eurasian Economic Union on January 1, 2015, Tengrinews reports citing NEWS.am.  Prime Minister of Armenia Hovik Abrahamyan announced this on Tuesday, July 22. He added that the agreement on Armenia’s accession into the EEU would be signed in October this year.  The Prime Minister emphasized that the delay in signing of the documents on Armenia’s accession had nothing to do with the demand to set up customs checkpoints on the border between Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, an ethnically dominated Armenian enclave within the Azerbaijani territory. He assured that this delay was due to organizational reasons only, not geopolitical or political ones. The same view was expressed earlier by Sergey Minasyan, Deputy Director of the Caucasus Institute.  Hovik Abrahamyan also highlighted that his visit to Sochi, Russia last week and his meeting with Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev had nothing to do with Armenia’s accession process. The main goal of his visit was to meet with the Russian-Armenian businessmen and discuss investments opportunities offered by Armenia.  Kazakhstan’s Foreign Minister Yerlan Idrissov also said that the agreement on Armenia’s accession into the EEU would most likely be signed in October 2014 at the meeting of the EEU member-countries’ presidents in Minsk, Belarus.

Headline:  Atlantic City’s Credit Rating Cut 2 Steps to Junk by Moody’s

Atlantic City, New Jersey, the gambling hub that’s been pummeled by regional competition in the U.S. Northeast, had its credit rating cut two levels to speculative grade by Moody’s Investors Service. The reduction to Ba1 from Baa2 on the city’s $245 million of general-obligation debt reflects a weakened tax base resulting from anticipated casino closings, the New York-based ratings company said today in a statement. The outlook remains negative. “The downgrade to Ba1 reflects the city’s significantly weakened tax base, revenue-raising ability and broader economic outlook,” analysts Vito Galluccio and Julie Beglin said in the statement. “These result from ongoing casino revenue declines, expected near-term casino closures, and the impact of sizable casino tax appeals, all of which has stemmed from increased competition from casinos in neighboring states.”

Japan registered a 7,598.4 billion yen deficit in goods trade for the six months through June, the biggest on record for any six-month period, due partly to a surge in imports amid the prolonged halt of nuclear power plants, the government said Thursday. During the first half of 2014, the value of imports rose 10.0 percent on year to 42,648.2 billion yen, with those of liquefied natural gas jumping 11.6 percent and of crude oil increasing 5.1 percent, the Finance Ministry said in a preliminary report.

Headline: Christians face ‘growing harassment’ in post-breakup Sudan

Church properties have been bulldozed and seized in a climate of growing harassment of minority Christians in Islamist-run Sudan since the south’s 2011 independence, its council of churches said. Kori Elramla Kori Kuku, general secretary of the Sudan Council of Churches, told AFP that harassment has been on the rise ever since the separation three years ago of South Sudan, whose population follow mainly Christian and traditional beliefs. He said the Council is concerned after a Sudanese newspaper report that the religious affairs ministry will no longer allow the building of new churches, since most Christians were Southerners who had left. But a senior ruling party official, Rabbie Abdelatti Ebaid, told AFP he was unaware of any such decision. In practice, churches have already faced obstacles, according to Kuku. The Sudan Church of Christ in North Khartoum was “bulldozed” because, according to officials, it lacked legal title to the land, he said. Authorities have also confiscated a building housing the Sudan Interior Church in the central Khartoum Two district, Kuku said at his office. And state security agents last week halted a workshop organised by ALARM, the African Leadership and Reconciliation Ministries, Kuku said.

Headline: Earthquakes are increasing in the UK: highest level in a decade

New figures show the number of earthquakes recorded in the UK is increasing. The highest level of detections in the last decade is set to be registered for 2014, with 100 earthquakes already recorded in the first three months of the year and 149 in total up until July. This compares to 154 throughout 2013, 64 in 2006 and 111 reported in 2005, 2007 and 2011 – one small tremor, which centered on Jersey and Guernsey in the Channel Islands earlier this month. The quake had a magnitude measuring 4.2, making it the largest in the region for almost 90 years and the tremors were felt all along the south coast of England. The tremor was reported to have registered on British Geological Survey monitoring station equipment in Exeter, Devon. Environmental activists fear the Government’s desire to exploit shale gas reserves in rocks beneath the UK will cause small earthquakes. But ministers believe the technique used to tap into the potential supplies – known as fracking – will bring down energy bills and create thousands of jobs.

Headline:  Earthquakes Are Rising in Oklahoma, and Insurance Is Booming

Earthquakes used to be rare in Oklahoma, a handful per year or so. Not anymore. So far this year, the state has experienced some 2,300 earthquakes, according to the Oklahoma Geological Survey, an average of more than 11 per day. Accordingly, the number of Oklahomans with earthquake insurance has jumped a startling 500 percent in less than three years, reports the Oklahoma Department of Insurance. While the cause of increased tremors in the Plains States remains under contention, residents, at the least, are preparing for the worst. The state agency doesn’t typically track the data and insurance companies don’t report it, but “we were getting calls from around the country,” says communications director Kerry Collins. So Collins called the state’s top five homeowners insurance companies—accounting for more than 70 percent of the market—and estimated an average: In 2011, only 3 percent of the state’s homeowners had an earthquake rider on their homeowners insurance policies; this year, 15 percent did.

*****I wanted to take a moment and explain the increase in news I have been posting lately and why. As our Lord said in Matthew 24:6-8 ”And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the BEGINNING of sorrows.”

As the birth pains speed up, the prophecy news I bring you increases. The other reason for the increase is the war between Gaza and Israel. Since the beginning of the the Gaza conflict, I have increased my updates as each thing happening is very important to prophecy. The wonderful news is that the Lord is touching more and more people bringing them to salvation- Amen.

However, I know that seeing ALL this information can be very overwhelming and difficult. Even I must step back from time to time and seek time alone with the Lord in prayer, that He may return peace to my heart. If you feel anxiety, consider taking a break for a day or two. The posts will still be here when you return :)

I would like to leave you with the words of our Lord found in John 16:21-22: ” A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. THEREFORE NOW YOU HAVE SORROW; BUT…I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN AND YOUR HEART WILL REJOICE, AND YOUR JOY NO ONE WILL TAKE FROM YOU”

I pray for you all every day. May God bless and keep each of you in His peace. Frank

As Operation Protective Edge enters its fifteenth day, a military official told Arutz Sheva Tuesday that one hundred and eighty (180) terrorists have been eliminated so far, including twenty (20) who were killed overnight Monday alone. Overnight, roughly 100 targets were attacked in the Sheijaya neighborhood, where 13 soldiers were killed Sunday. Twenty eight terrorists have been arrested since the launch of the ground offensive on Thursday and have since been interrogated by the Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet). In total, he added, 3,200 terror targets have been eliminated in Gaza over a two-week period – including a total of 59 terror tunnels and entry shafts. Hamas fired a heavy volley of rockets at Israel overnight, mostly in the south. Of a volley fired at the Be’er Sheva region, three rockets fell in open areas; one was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.

Headline:  Palestinians: Ceasefire talks failing because of prisoners released in Shalit deal

The Palestinians Ma’an News Agency reported Tuesday that the reason for failure in attempts to reach a ceasefire agreement is Israel’s refusal to release prisoners who were previously pardoned as part of a the deal to secure the release of Gilad Shalit. According to the report, the Palestinian director of intelligence asked US Secretary of State John Kerry to secure the release of the prisoners along with the fourth wave of prisoners that Israel had originally agreed to let go before the collapse of the last round of peace talks.

Headline: Israel’s Offensive Could Lead To A Head-On Collision With The Syrian War

Although rocket fire from Lebanon and Syria remains sporadic for now, Israel and other parties need to be aware of the potential for serious miscalculation and escalation. As Israel’s Operation Protective Edge continues in Gaza, the conflict is affecting almost all major cities in Israel, including communities near the northern borders. Since Protective Edge began on July 8, at least four rockets have been launched from Lebanon into Israel, while other attempts were stopped before launch by the Lebanese army. In the past two weeks, Israel has come under fire from Syrian territory twice: a mortar attack on July 13, and a rocket strike a day later. And prior to the latest Gaza clash, there were several border incidents targeting Israeli forces, including a June 22 attack in which an antitank missile launched from a Syrian regime military post killed an Israeli boy.

Wednesday’s gathering is to be allowed because the pro-Palestinian organisers are considered “serious and responsible” by the authorities, reports French daily Le Parisien. The Paris-based Federation International of Human Rights (FIDH) as well as a handful of left wing groups is behind the demonstration, set to kick off in the early evening from the city’s centre. The move comes on the heels of a controversial French government ban on demonstrations in the capital after several protesters targeted two Paris synagogues the week before.

The spokesman of Egypt’s military says 20 “terrorists” carried out a deadly border post attack that killed 22 soldiers, the deadliest assault on Egypt’s military in years. A statement posted Tuesday on the official Facebook page of military spokesman Brig. Gen. Mohammed Samir said attackers driving four pickup trucks loaded with explosives first exchanged gunfire with soldiers at a border post in el-Wadi el-Gadid, Egypt’s largest province bordering Libya and Sudan. The statement said the gunfire prevented the attackers from storming the post. However, it said attackers fired rocket-propelled grenades at a gas cylinder, blowing it up and causing a fire in an ammunition warehouse that exploded and killed the soldiers Saturday. The statement did not say who the military suspects of carrying out the attack.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is now in control of 35 percent of the Syrian territory following a string of victories, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Friday. ISIS holdings include nearly all of Syria’s oil and gas fields, the monitoring group said in a statement. One of the latest gains of the self-proclaimed “caliphate” was the seizure of the country’s biggest oil fields, in Deir el-Zour in eastern Syria, earlier in the week. Deir Ezzor borders Homs province as well as Iraq, where the jihadist group has spearheaded a major Sunni militant offensive that has seen large swathes of territory fall out of the Baghdad government’s control. Meanwhile, jihadists have killed 270 Syrian regime fighters, civilian security guards and employees since seizing a gas field in Homs province, the Observatory added, according to Agence France-Presse.

Headline: Iraqi militants crush resistance and continue towards Baghdad

Using its own version of “soft” and “hard” power, the Islamic State is crushing resistance across northern Iraq so successfully that its promise to march on Baghdad may no longer be unrealistic bravado. While conventional states try to win hearts and minds abroad before necessarily resorting to military force, the jihadist group is also achieving its aims by psychological means – backed up by a reputation for extreme violence. The Islamic State, which in June captured a vast stretch of territory in the north including the largest city Mosul, used this strategy when its fighters met armed resistance from the town of al-Alam for 13 days running. They kidnapped 30 local families and rang up the town’s most influential citizens with a simple message about the hostages: “You know their destiny if you don’t let us take over the town.”

Headline: Iraq PM seeks Sunni tribal help in battling ISIS insurgency

Baghdad is under a real and impending threat from forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), and it would be wise to expect an assault on the capital city before the end of Ramadan, said Jessica Lewis, a former American military intelligence officer with several years of service in Iraq. She also predicted the continued aggression of ISIS both within Iraq and externally, arguing that ISIS poses a real threat to Jordan, Lebanon and other states in the region and is not limited to Iraq and Syria. ISIS has been on the offensive since its takeover of Mosul on June 10th, claiming a number of other cities such as Tikrit since then. The US has countered these offensive gestures by sending 700 military advisers, several Apache attack helicopters, and drones to Iraq. The Iraqi army has recently embarked on a counter-offensive in Tikrit and Samarra. With regard to Baghdad, Lewis said, “I think ISIS is going to go for bases. There are 3 bases that I think are vulnerable…On the northern side of Baghdad we have Balad and Taji, on the immediate southwest of Baghdad we have the international airport.” The US has thus far used the Baghdad Airport as a main lifeline to supply the Iraqi government with military equipment.

Ahmed al-Shami, spokesman for the Falluja health office – the local arm of the health ministry – said the 19 dead included women and children and that Falluja hospital had also received 38 wounded people since Monday evening.

Headline:  MERS Virus may have Airborne Potential

Scientists have found that the deadly Middle East Respiratory syndrome (MERS) virus could be passed through gene fragments found in the air. Since the health issue first emerged, close to 850 people had contracted the virus, of which 327 were killed, according to estimates from the European Center for Disease Prevention Control (ECDC). Though the vast majority of cases have been in Saudi Arabia, some isolated versions have also been linked to parts of Europe, Asia and the United States from those who recently traveled in the Middle East. For the study, researchers collected air samples every day for three days, all from the camel barn that belonged to a MERS patient. The 43-year-old man, who was living south of the town of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, had died from the virus. Researchers tested the air samples for signs of the virus, and found genetic fragments of the coronavirus that matched those found in the camel and the deceased owner. “The clear message here is that detection of airborne MERS-CoV molecules, which were 100 percent identical with the viral genomic sequence detected from a camel actively shedding the virus in the same barn on the same day, warrants further investigations and measures to prevent possible airborne transmission of this deadly virus,” said lead study author Esam Azhar, an associate professor of medical virology at King Abdulaziz University in Jeddah, via Reuters.

Headline:  IAF struck Sudan weapons stockpile headed for Hamas

Israel recently blew up a weapons cache in Sudan that was destined for Hamas in Gaza, the London-based Arabic-language newspaper Al-Arab reported Monday. According to the report, Sudanese officials believe that Israel did carry out a recent bombardment in its territory, and have imposed a total blackout on the incident. The newspaper also reported that the bombing of a warehouse of weapons occurred just hours after Israel accused Sudan of providing long-range rockets to Hamas. A source in the Sudanese security and intelligence establishment is quoted in the report as saying that a loud explosion occurred last Friday in a weapons and equipment warehouse at a military base north of Khartoum. He said the explosion was caused by a fire at the site, and was not due to an attack by Israel Air Force jets.  A spokesman for the Sudanese army also denied that there had been deliberate attack from internal or external agents. While Al-Arab reported six casualties in the incident, the Sudanese defense establishment said that it had managed to bring under control a fire that had broken out in a warehouse, and there were no casualties. According to the Sudanese official, the warehouse contained training equipment.

Casualties were reported among Israel Defense Forces troops. Roads were closed and residents ordered to remain indoors until just after 10 A.M., when the incident was declared over. Meanwhile, the Israel Defense Forces advanced into the Strip overnight, and clashes were reported in a number of areas. Two apparent tunnel sites were located by forces.

The United Nations Security Council called for an immediate halt to fighting in the Gaza Strip at an emergency session Sunday evening, but stopped short considering a draft resolution that would have called for Israeli forces to withdraw from the territory. The draft resolution had been proposed by Jordan, which had requested the meeting of the Security Council as the Arab League’s representative on the panel. A copy of the draft resolution obtained by the Associated Press expressed also expressed “grave concern” at the high numbers of Palestinian civilians reported killed in Gaza, including children. However, the Jordanian proposal was not discussed.

Headline: Hamas: We fired four M75 rockets at Tel Aviv

Among the demands Hamas has demanded that Israel fulfill in exchange for a cease-fire is the continued unlimited supply of free electricity by Israel to terrorists-run Gaza. The electricity demand was one of “ten commands” Hamas has put forth, the terror group said. Hamas owes the Israel Electric Company (IEC) hundreds of millions of shekels, part of the 1.4 billion shekel electricity bill that the Palestinian Authority owes. Neither the PA nor Gaza have paid for electricity for at least a decade. On Monday, Hamas top terrorist Ismail Haniyeh again reiterated that the terror group would fight “until the last drop of blood” in its attempts to destroy Israel. “We will continue the struggle until we liberate the land, Jerusalem, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and return the ‘refugees’ to their homes,” he said.

Israel’s U.N. Ambassador Ron Prosor said on Sunday there was no kidnapped Israeli soldier, dismissing a televised announcement in the Gaza Strip from Hamas’s armed wing that it had captured an Israeli soldier during the fighting in Shejaia. “There’s no kidnapped Israeli soldier and those rumors are untrue,” Prosor told reporters at the United Nations as the Security Council held an emergency meeting on the escalating crisis between Israel and Palestinians. Hamas’ armed wing had claimed itkidnapped an Israeli soldier on Sunday. In the offensive, Hamas troops made an ambush on Israeli militants in the city’s outskirts in Eastern Gaza. The announcement of the abduction allegations of Israeli soldier Shaul Aaron soon went viral. Representative Abu Ubaida stated “we have captured a Zionist soldier and the occupation has not admitted that.” “The Israeli soldier Shaul Aaron is in the hands of the Qassam Brigades,” he added. AFP correspondents said there were celebrations in the streets of West Bank cities Ramallah and Hebron following Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades’ announcement, with Palestinians shooting guns in the air and praising Hamas.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman urged Israelis to boycott the businesses of Arab citizens who are taking part in a general strike in protest of the Israel Defense Forces operation in the Gaza Strip and the deaths of Palestinian civilians. In a Facebook post published Monday afternoon, Lieberman wrote, “I call upon everyone not to shop anymore at the stores and businesses of those among the Arab sector who are participating today in the general strike that was declared by the Higher Arab Monitoring Committee as a sign of empathy for Gaza residents and against Operation Protective Edge.” The committee explained that the troubling pictures emerging from Gaza – particularly those that came out of Shujaiyeh on Sunday – have shaken up the Israeli-Arab population, and in the face of those pictures they can’t remain indifferent. Furthermore, it said, the Ramadan atmosphere has contributed to the strike.

Headline: Unrest returns to Lebanon’s Tripoli

Clashes broke out between the Lebanese Armed Forces and an armed group in the northern city of Tripoli on Sunday morning, after a man was injured in violent overnight protests against the arrest of a militant Sunni sheikh.  The clashes took place near the Al-Ahram Cinema on central Tripoli’s Syria Street, with initial reports suggesting an unspecified number of injuries, according to Lebanon’s official National News Agency.  In the early hours of Sunday morning, a hand grenade thrown near the city’s Mankoubin junction led to the injury of a Palestinian man, identified by his initials as R.Sh.  Sh’s injury was the result of violent protests in a number of the city’s neighborhoods against the arrest of Hussam al-Sabbagh, a militant sheikh from Bab al-Tabbanah who is said to have fought in Afghanistan and Chechnya.

Headline:  Gaza unrest fuels Qatar, UAE dispute

Abu Dhabi has accused the Al-Jazeera TV channel and websites close to Qatar of “fabricating” information suggesting UAE supported Israel’s attack in Gaza, in the latest tensions between both countries. Relations between Qatar and its Gulf neighbors Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Bahrain sank to a new low in March when the three governments withdrew their ambassadors from Doha, accusing it of meddling in their affairs and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood. Islamist movement Hamas, the main power in Gaza – where two weeks of deadly violence has left more than 500 Palestinians, most of them civilians, and 18 Israeli soldiers killed – is linked to the Muslim Brotherhood. UAE State Minister for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash demanded an “official apology” from Doha-based Al-Jazeera for publishing news stating that a meeting had taken place between foreign ministers of the UAE and Israel, local media said Monday.

Headline: Syria rebels battle ISIS jihadists near Damascus

Syrian rebels battled jihadists from the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) near Damascus Monday, pressing their bid to expel them from their strongholds, an activist group said. Rebels holding positions in southern Damascus and the outskirts of the capital and seeking President Bashar Assad’s ouster, launched an offensive some three weeks ago to expel ISIS. ISIS was initially welcomed by some rebels as a potential ally in the armed revolt, but the opposition, including Islamists, has turned against it. ISIS fighters have in recent days been expelled from the towns of Mesraba and Maydaa, in the Eastern Ghouta area east of Damascus. They have also been forced out of Yalda and Beit Sahem, in the capital, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The expelled jihadists fled to Al-Hajar al-Aswad, Tadamon and Qadam in southern Damascus, “where they have a strong presence,” said Observatory director Rami Abdel-Rahman.

Headline: U.N. Security Council to vote Monday on Ukraine resolution

Fighting flared in the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk on Monday as investigators began to inspect the bodies of victims of the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 last week. The fighting in Donetsk served as a reminder of the dangers the experts face working in a war zone. International inspectors got access to the remains of hundreds of victims stored in refrigerated railway wagons near the crash site but governments expressed concern over broader access to the rebel-held area. The government in Kiev denied sending the regular army into the center of Donetsk, which pro-Russian separatists captured in April, but said small “self-organized” pro-Ukrainian groups were fighting the rebels in the city. Three people were killed in clashes near the railway station and close to the airport outside Donetsk, health officials said. Artillery fire sent plumes of smoke skywards near the Donetsk railway station, around 60 km (40 miles) from the crash site, in what the separatists said was an attempt by government forces to enter the city they seized in April. The clashes quickly subsided.

Headline: Iranian Reactions To The War In Gaza: Israel’s Destruction Imminent; Israel Attacks Due To Arab World’s Silence, We Have Supplied Gaza Resistance With Drones And Fajr 5 Missiles

Headline: Iran boosts Hamas rocket capacity

Influenced by the Iranian regime’s predicament vis-à-vis the Sunni world due to the Iraqi and Syrian crises,[1] senior Iranian officials have assailed the Arab countries for keeping silent about the Israeli attack in Gaza. The officials argued that the Arab states were thus effectively collaborating with Israel and urged them to come to their senses and assist Hamas and the resistance. Alongside calls for Israel’s destruction by senior regime officials and their mouth pieces, Tehran backed the Hamas decision to reject the Egyptian cease-fire initiative. Hossein Al-Islam, the secretary-general of the Iranian Association for Supporting the Palestinian Intifada and an advisor to Iranian Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, defended Hamas’ refusal saying that the Egyptian proposal sought to destroy the capabilities of the resistance organizations in Gaza. He explained that the only available option was for Israeli residents to return to the countries from which they came, claiming that the Iron Dome system, along with Israel’s security concepts, had collapsed thanks to the resistance’s missile capability in Gaza. Other Iranian officials repeated the directives of Ayatollah Khomeini and his successor, Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei, and claimed that Israel’s destruction was imminent.

Headline: Overnight attacks in Iraq kill at least 16 people

Attacks overnight in two Iraqi cities killed at least 16 people, officials said Monday as authorities struggle to stop the Sunni militants’ offensive that has left huge areas in northern and western Iraq outside of government control. In one of the attacks, mortar rounds rained down on Shiite neighborhoods in the town of Mahmoudiya Sunday night, killing 11 civilians and wounding 31, a police official said. The mixed Shiite- Sunni town is about 30 kilometers south of Baghdad. And in Baghdad’s western suburb of Abu Ghraib, a roadside bomb struck an army patrol, killing two soldiers and three volunteers who took up arms following the Sunni militant push across Iraq in recent weeks. Eight people were wounded in that attack, said the police official.

Heavy shooting continued for a second day with fighting continuing in the northern town and rebel forces apparently in “firm control” of the center, U.N. spokesman Joe Contreras said. The United Nations warned Sunday that the fresh rebel offensive “represents the most serious resumption of hostilities” since President Salva Kiir and his former deputy, rebel leader Riek Machar, met in May promising again to stick to a January cease-fire. More than seven months of war has left thousands dead and displaced 1.5 million people, and aid agencies are warning of famine if fighting continues.

Libya’s Health Ministry says clashes between rival militias fighting for control of the international airport in the capital, Tripoli, have killed 47 people over the past 24 hours. The ministry said on its website late Sunday that the fighting also left 120 people wounded. It also says it hasn’t yet received all casualty reports. The weeklong battle over the airport is being waged by a powerful militia from the western city of Zintan, which controls the facility, and Islamist-led militias, including fighters from Misrata, east of Tripoli. The clashes resumed Sunday after cease-fire efforts failed. Libya is going through one of its worst spasms of violence since the 2011 ouster of longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi. Rival militias have forced a weeklong closure of gas stations and government offices.

North Korea says its latest missile tests are a legitimate exercise in self-defense, criticizing South Korea and the United States for calling the exercises provocative. The National Defense Commission (NDC), the North’s top military body, on Monday called the charges absurd and hypocritical. “The real provocations and threats made to the Korean Peninsula are the whole gamut of political and military moves being pushed forward by the US,” an NDC spokesman said, referring to the annual joint drills by the US and South Korea. The North has conducted a series of rocket and missile tests over the past month in response to large-scale military drills South Korean and US forces conduct every year. North Korea has repeatedly renounced the exercises as “rehearsals for invasion.”

Headline: Typhoon kills 11 in Vietnam; China deaths up to 26

A typhoon that barreled into northern Vietnam killed at least 11 people and left several missing, state media said Monday, while in China the death toll from the strongest storm to strike the country’s south in four decades rose to 26. Typhoon Rammasun made landfall in Vietnam over the weekend, triggering heavy floods, destroying homes and crops, and blocking roads with landslides, said the Vietnam News, an English-language daily published by the official Vietnam News Agency. The paper’s website carried photos that showed streets and local markets in the city of Lang Son and elsewhere submerged in water, with residents floating on rubber tires or rafts or huddling under makeshift tents. Rammasun had earlier battered southern China, killing 26 people and destroying tens of thousands of homes, according to China’s official Xinhua News Agency. It was the strongest typhoon to hit China’s southern region in 41 years, damaging roads and ports, cutting electricity and water supplies, and hampering rescue efforts as it swept through dozens of coastal cities.
