Headline: Nasrallah: Israel will be defeated

Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah on Sunday gave a speech marking the 11th anniversary of the Second Lebanon War and warned Israel against further military action in Lebanon. “Any Israeli force that enters Lebanon will be met with a great defeat and humiliation compared to the last war,” Nasrallah said. “Israel’s goal in that war was to crush Hezbollah, but since then our power has only grown and the Israelis know it.” “Israel will suffer the same defeat that it suffered in 2006 but with greater force” if it attacks Lebanon again, he warned in the televised speech. “Every time an Israeli official talks about Hezbollah’s buildup, he admits in effect Israel’s defeat against Hezbollah,” Nasrallah claimed. “The closure of the ammonia tank in Haifa shows that Israel respects the power of its enemies. Israel will consider a war in Lebanon only as a last resort,” he stated. Nasrallah, however, has been forced to live in an underground bunker since the 2006 Second Lebanon War – a fact which he denies. From there, he has continuously threatened Israel.

Headline: Bomb kills 13 in southern Yemen

A bomb went off on Monday at a busy district in a southern Yemeni city, killing 13 people and wounding an unspecified number, according to security officials. They said the explosion struck a market in Qataba, in the southern Dhale province, but provided no further details. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but al-Qaida and Islamic State militants are active in southern Yemen. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak to the press. Dhale is controlled by forces loyal to the internationally recognized government, which is at war with Shiite rebels known as the Houthis and their allies. A Saudi-led coalition has been fighting alongside the government since 2015.

Headline: Syrian army comes closer to encircling ISIS in central Syria desert

The Syrian army and its allies advanced in the central Syrian desert on Monday and could soon encircle an Islamic State pocket, part of a multi-pronged thrust into eastern areas held by the jihadist  group. A Syrian military source said the Syrian army and its allies had taken a number of villages around the town of al-Koum in northeastern Homs province. This leaves a gap held by Islamic State of around only 25 km (15 miles) between al-Koum and the town of al-Sukhna to its south, which was taken by the Syrian government on Saturday. If the army, supported by Russian air power and Iran-backed militias, closes this gap they will encircle Islamic State fighters to their west in an area of land around 8,000 km square, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Headline: Islamic State claims attack on US forces west of Mosul

Islamic State on Sunday claimed an attack on US forces assisting Iraqi troops in the war on the jihadist militants in northern Iraq. Islamic State fighters fired Grad rockets on American troops east of Tal Afar, a town still under control of the militants west of Mosul, according to an online statement from the group. The American military had said earlier that two US service members had been killed and five injured during combat operations in northern Iraq on Sunday. Islamic State’s self-proclaimed “caliphate” effectively collapsed last month, when US-backed Iraqi forces completed the recapture of Mosul, the militants’ capital in Iraq, after a nine-month campaign.

Headline: “ISIS out: Iran in” doesn’t apply to Syria

Headline: US Navy reports another tense encounter with an Iran drone

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the Mossad Director Yossie Cohen asserted separately on Sunday, Aug. 13, that wherever the Islamic State is thrown out, Iran moves in. This assessment was borrowed from American evaluations of the situation in Afghanistan and Yemen. It does not work as a guiding principle for Israeli security in its immediate neighborhood – certainly not for Syria.
Cohen was correct in stating in his briefing that Iran presents Israel with its greatest peril, and that the Islamic Republic has used its 2015 nuclear accord with the six world powers as an accelerant for developing nuclear weapons. But that does not make the situation in Syria analogous to Afghanistan, as an examination of the facts show. ISIS was pushed out of parts of northern Syria by the Syrian army, Turkish troops, Syrian rebel groups and Kurdish militias. But neither Iranian forces, nor Hizballah or the Shiite militias, imported from Afghanistan and Pakistan to fight under Iranian officers, have moved in to take their place. Neither have they been allowed a role in the ongoing offensive for the capture of Raqqa.  And no Iranian or Shiite presence is to be found in Tabqa, northwest of this former ISIS capital in Syria, or Al-Bab north of Aleppo. Both towns were wrested form the jihadists by other forces. Had Netanyahu and Cohen noted that Iranian and Hizballah took part in some of the battles fought by Russian and Syrian army forces, they would have been correct.  However, it must be said that the pro-Iranian forces’ participation in battles against ISIS was never more than a by-product of their overriding objective, which was to preserve Bashar Assad in the presidential palace in Damascus. Today, they are closer than ever to achieving their goal in view of the crumbling resistance: the US, Saudi Arabia and Turkey this month signaled they were pulling their support from the Syrian anti-Assad insurgency.

Headline: Taliban overruns district in Afghan northwest

The Afghan Taliban has again retaken control of the district of Ghormach in Faryab province. The remote district has changed hands twice in less than two years.

The district chief of police is denying Ghormach fell to the Taliban, but that is likely because Afghan forces made a “tactical retreat” to a base outside the district center. From TOLONews:Ghormach district of Faryab province fallen to the Taliban on Sunday, a source told TOLOnews. Faryab’s police chief Dilwar Shah Dilawar denied the development but said security forces had made a tactical  retreat from the district.

Headline: 24 killed in post-election violence in Kenya, rights group says

Headline: Kenya’s Opposition Leader Calls for People to Continue Election Protest

Violence erupted after the re-election of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta this week, leaving at least 24 people dead nationwide, a rights group said. The victims included a 9-year-old girl, according to the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights. Relatives said the victims were shot dead in various parts of the nation, including 17 in the capital of Nairobi, the group said. Kenyatta, the 55-year-old son of the country’s founding President, was declared the winner Friday, defeating veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga for a second five-year term. Protests and violence broke out after he was declared the winner. Most of the demonstrators were supporters of Odinga, who has rejected the results of the presidential election, calling the vote rigged. National election officials have decried the accusations, saying the vote was free and credible. Protests erupted in and around Kisumu, a stronghold of Odinga. One person was killed overnight in Kisumu, police said. Violence also broke out in Nairobi’s slum of Mathare, where tear gas and gunshots rang out all night, witnesses said.

Headline: Burkina Faso forces end restaurant attack; 18 killed

Burkina Faso’s government spokesman says that the country’s special forces have ended an attack by suspected Islamic extremists on an upscale Turkish restaurant in this West African country’s capital, Ouagadougou. “At this moment our forces have neutralized two terrorists and the number of casualties, still provisional, is 18 dead and several wounded,” Communications Minister and government spokesman Remy Danguinou told journalists Monday morning. He said the dead are “mainly children and women” and the toll could rise because several people were wounded by the gunfire.At least three members of Burkina Faso’s security forces were wounded during the assault, which lasted for nearly seven hours, said Capt. Guy Ye, spokesman of the security forces. The assailants arrived at the restaurant on motorcycles and then began shooting randomly at the crowds dining Sunday evening, he said. Security forces arrived at the scene with armored vehicles after reports of shots fired near Aziz Istanbul.

Headline: Battles Between Philippine Extremists, Government-backed Separatists Kill 25

Fighting between government-backed separatist rebels and pro-Islamic State militants have killed at least 25 people in the southern Philippines, the army said on Monday, as the military battles to restore order on the troubled island of Mindanao. Soldiers provided artillery support for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), a Muslim rebel group with which the government has signed a peace agreement, to try to tackle Islamist extremists, spokesman Colonel Gerry Besana said. The MILF and the government have agreed to work together to thwart several militant groups in Mindanao that have pledged allegiance to Islamic State. “Based on reports from cease-fire monitors, the two sides suffered 25 casualties, including 20 from the ISIS-inspired group,” Besana said, referring to Islamic State by another acronym. He said 10 MILF were wounded and were being treated at a military hospital. The conflict started on Aug 7 when extremists from Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) attacked two villages in Maguindanao and their homemade bombs killed five MILF fighters. The MILF responded and clashes lasted six days, with the military firing howitzer cannons in support, Besana said.

Headline: The Plague Has Once Again Been Found In The U.S.

As much as we’ve been taught to believe that the plague was a thing of ancient European history, it’s unfortunately still going around — and has once again been found in the U.S. As ABC News reports, officials in two Arizona counties are warning the public after fleas in the area tested positive for the plague. Public health officials in Navajo County and Coconino County have issued warnings that the rare disease could be spread to humans by the bite of an infected flea. “Navajo County Health Department is urging the public to take precautions to reduce their risk of exposure to this serious disease, which can be present in fleas, rodents, rabbits, and predators that feed upon these animals,” the warning states, according to ABC. “The disease can be transmitted to humans and other animals by the bite of an infected flea or by direct contact with an infected animal.” Symptoms of the plague can depend on how the person was infected, but an infection by flea bite may cause fever, headache, chills, and weakness and one or more swollen, tender and painful lymph nodes, according to the CDC.

Headline: Space agencies track trajectory of approaching asteroid

Asteroid 2012 TC4 hasn’t been seen since its last brush with our planet five years ago, but calculations of its trajectory told astronomers that it would return in October 2017. Right on cue, the building-sized rock has now emerged from the darkness of space as it hurtles towards the Earth. NASA and the ESA plan to use it as a test run for the international Planetary Defense network, and have now been able to calculate its trajectory. With asteroids grazing past Earth with worrying regularity, it would definitely pay to have some forewarning if any were on a collision course. The Chelyabinsk meteor is a perfect example of a hazardous space rock sneaking up on us, causing widespread damage and injury when it exploded over Russia in 2013. To help prevent a disaster like that (or worse) from occurring again, NASA has established the Planetary Defense Coordination Office to detect and track near-Earth objects.

Headline: More than 200 dead in Sierra Leone mudslides

At least 200 people died in a mudslide in Sierra Leone early Monday, local authorities said. The local Red Cross put the death toll at 18, but Sierra Leone Vice President Victor Foh said, “hundreds have probably died.” A night of heavy rain in the mountain town of Regent, near Freetown, caused widespread flooding and mudslides, and survivors could be seen walking through muddy, waist-deep water in the Freetown vicinity, the BBC reported. Many houses in the town were completely covered in mud. Although officials said it was too early for an exact casualty count, The Telegraph reported that more than 200 bodies were taken to mortuaries.
