Headline: Rabbis call on Jews to visit Temple Mount ‘to strengthen our claim to this holy place’

Several dozen prominent national-religious rabbis issued a statement on Thursday encouraging Jews to visit the Temple Mount, a call which comes against the background of severe tensions that have surrounded the site since two Israeli policemen were murdered there by three Arab-Israeli men two weeks ago. The rabbis declared that it is of religious merit to visit the Temple Mount and that such visits bolster the Jewish people’s claim to it. The rabbis insisted however that anyone who goes up to the Temple Mount comply with religious strictures at the site, including immersing in a ritual bath before ascending, not wearing leather shoes, and refraining from entering areas forbidden by Jewish law, specifically close proximity to the Dome of the Rock Islamic shrine, where it is believed the Temple’s Holy of Holies was located.

Headline: Muslim authorities approve Temple Mount prayers after cameras removed

The Muslim Wakf along with the Mufti of Jerusalem announced Thursday morning that Muslims would once again be encouraged to worship at the al-Aksa compound after Israel removed newly installed security measures at the holy site. The announcement raised hopes of an end to two weeks of heightened tensions in the city that is holy to the three monotheistic religions.  Security cameras and barricades at Temple Mount were dismantled Thursday morning as a result of the Israeli Security Cabinet’s decision to remove the heightened security measures implemented at the site after the July 14 attack where two Israeli policemen were killed. Amateur video shot overnight showed Israeli contractors dismantling gantries put up to hold security cameras and using forklift trucks to take away metal barriers from the marbled Lion’s Gate entrance to the mosque compound. “The technical report showed that all obstacles the ‘occupation’ (Israel) put outside Al-Aksa mosque were removed,” the head of the Wakf, Abdel-Azeem Salhab, said.

Headline: Lebanese army ‘strengthening positions’ against Daesh

The Lebanese army says it is currently strengthening its positions against Daesh following skirmishes with militants close to the Syrian border. A military source stated that the army had exchanged fire on Thursday with fighters attached to Daesh, which controls a barren mountainous area in northeastern Lebanon. The official Lebanese National News Agency (NNA) reported that “Daesh militants fired at the Lebanese army which in turn responded.” “No negotiations with Daesh are currently taking place. We are strengthening our positions in preparation for any possible incident. According to the given data and conditions on the ground, we will determine if we will wage a battle against Daesh.” Meanwhile, areas close to those controlled by Daesh were calm at 6 a.m. on Thursday, following the announcement of a cease-fire by Hezbollah, after its battle against Jabhat Fateh Al-Sham (JFS), formerly known as the Al-Nusra Front, in the Jaroud Arsal area.

Headline: Putin signs Syria base deal, cementing Russia’s presence there for half a century

President Vladimir Putin has signed a law ratifying a deal with the Syrian government allowing Russia to keep its air base in Syria for almost half a century, official documents show. The original deal, signed in Damascus in January, sets out the terms under which Russia can use its Hmeymim air base in Latakia Province which it has used to carry out air strikes against forces opposing President Bashar Assad. Putin approved the agreement on Wednesday, after the two chambers of the Russian parliament backed it earlier this month, according to the government’s official information portal. The document says Russian forces will be deployed at the Hmeymim base for 49 years with the option of extending that arrangement for 25-year periods.

Headline: US imposes new ballistic missile sanctions on Iran after latest launch

The United States on Friday imposed new ballistic missile sanctions on Iran, a day after the Islamic Republic launched a rocket towards space. Though the flight ultimately wasn’t successful, officials told Fox News, Iran’s rocket is thought to be a step toward developing an intercontinental ballistic missile that could one day carry a nuclear weapon. The sanctions announced on Friday target six Iranian subsidiaries of the Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group. The Treasury Department said that group is “central” to Iran’s ballistic missiles program. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the sanctions illustrate deep U.S. concerns about Iran’s missile testing and other actions. He said the U.S. would continue countering Iran’s ballistic missile program — including Thursday’s “provocative space launch.” The U.S. has said the launch flouted a United Nations Security Council resolution because the technology is inherently designed to be able to carry a nuclear payload.

Headline: Islamic State Threatens Iran in New Video

The Islamic State group has issued a short new video in which it threatens the Islamic Republic of Iran and vows to destabilize the country with terrorist attacks. The video, released Tuesday, depicts a teenage boy in military uniform who directly looks at the camera and speaks Persian with a bold voice, threatening the regime. The teenager is introduced as the “Persian Qattadah” in the video, which is the name of a close disciple of Prophet Muhammad. “We will destroy your land and your home, we will disrupt your security and we will shed your blood into rivers,” the teenager is heard saying in the video. Iran has not yet reacted to the video. “Islamic State’s propaganda is falling on fertile ground as Sunnis in Iran are deeply underprivileged and deprived of many of their rights,” Ali Alfoneh, a nonresident senior fellow at Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East at The Atlantic Council, told VOA.

Headline: Venezuela imposes ban on demonstrations as election nears

Headline: Venezuela opposition leader urges public, army, on strike

Headline: Venezuelans Stockpile Food and Water Ahead of Maduro Power Grab

The Venezuelan government on Friday ordered a ban on demonstrations, amid a two-day strike against proposed constitutional reforms. The government announced the ban on all protests that “might disturb the electoral process” of Sunday’s election. Nestor Reverol, the interior and justice minister, warned that violators face prison sentences of five to 10 years if they violate the ban. This weekend, voters will elect a 545-member special assembly that will be charged with rewriting the Venezuelan constitution — and will have the power to eliminate state agencies. Opponents see the Constituent Assembly as a step toward dictatorship by the party of President Nicolas Maduro. A mass protest in Caracas remained scheduled for Friday, in the midst of the 48-hour general strike that started Thursday. Anti-government protests, which began in April, increased this week. Incidents linked to protests on Wednesday and Thursday led to the deaths of seven demonstrators, the nation’s attorney general’s office said. Hundreds of Maduro’s supporters marched in the streets Thursday on the final day of the election campaign.

At least five members of an oil exploration team were killed and soldiers also died. Army chiefs have now been ordered to relocate to the affected area.

But now the university has said at least five members of staff, including two academics and a driver, were killed when the heavily armed convoy made its way back to Maiduguri, in north-east Nigeria.

The statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the United States Embassy was asked to reduce its diplomatic and technical staff members in Russia to 455 by Sept. 1, matching the number of Russian diplomats in the United States.

Headline: Al-Qaida Announces Establishment of Group in Indian Kashmir

Indian police say they are investigating a claim by al-Qaida that it has established a new group in Indian Kashmir. It is the first time a global terror outfit has claimed a presence in Kashmir, where local Islamic militant groups have led a violent, separatist insurgency. Al-Qaida announced the establishment of the Ansar Ghawzat-Ul-Hind, to be led by a local commander, Zakir Musa, on its online information network, the Global Islamic Media Front. Musa represents a new generation of young militants who Indian experts say are radicalizing young Kashmiris to revitalize an insurgency that had become dormant, but has flared in the past year.
