Headline: Nasrallah tells Jews who moved to Israel to get out before next war begins

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government on Sunday of pushing the region to war in Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip and said nowhere in Israel would be safe if such a conflict were to erupt. With Hezbollah actively fighting in Syria and Israel concerned that it, along with its patron Iran, will try to establish a permanent presence there, tensions between Israel and the terrorist organization have risen this year. In a speech to followers, Nasrallah said the Israeli government did not have “a correct assessment of where this war will lead if they ignite it,” and did not know how it would end. “They do not have a correct picture about what is awaiting them if they go to the idiocy of this war,” Nasrallah said. Israel does not know where such a conflict would be fought, or who would take part, he added. In his speech Sunday, he called on Jews who immigrated to Israel to “leave and return to the countries from which they came so they are not fuel for any war that the idiotic Netanyahu government takes them to.” Were war to erupt, he said, they might not have long to leave. “They will have no secure place in occupied Palestine,” he said. Nasrallah also said that the Shi’ite Lebanese terrorist group wouldn’t remain silent on the continued Israeli “threats to Lebanon” and its “continued aggression in Syria under the banner of preventing the resistance from obtaining military capabilities.”

Headline: Rebel spokesman: Houthi missiles can hit covert Israeli bases in Eritrea

A spokesperson for Yemeni rebels has accused Israel of taking part in the Saudi Arabia led-coalition against Yemen and warned that Israeli military bases in Africa are within range of Houthi missiles. Col. Aziz Rashid, military spokesman for the Houthis was quoted by Al Masirah, a news outlet tied to the armed group, also warned that his forces would soon have missiles capable of reaching bases in Israel itself. “In the event that the military situation develops, all possibilities will be considered,” he said. While Israel is not recognized by Saudi Arabia, Riyadh and Jerusalem have shared interests in curbing the expanding role of their mutual enemy, Iran, across the region. Relations between Iran and Saudi Arabia are at their worst in years with both accusing the other of subverting regional security. Israel for its part has continued to warn of the growing presence of Iranian forces on its northern border. Israel established diplomatic relations with Eritrea in early 1993 and assisted in the Eritrean war of independence. A 2012 report by intelligence group Stratfor uncovered Israeli naval bases in Eritrea’s Dahlak Archipelago and Massawa along with a listening post on Amba Soira. It was previously reported that the Israeli bases were used by submarines and ships taking part in the ongoing covert war against Iranian networks smuggling weapons to Hamas and Hezbollah through the Red Sea and then to Sudan and Egypt.

Headline: North Korean ship seized off Egypt with huge weapons cache

The Washington Post reports that Egypt clandestinely ordered more than 30,000 rocket-propelled grenades from North Korea in contravention of sanctions last year and that the deal was halted at the last minute by the United States. The discovery was later described in a UN report as the “largest seizure of ammunition in the history of sanctions against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.” A series of secret deals between the two countries prompted the US to complain to Egypt and the Trump administration to decide over the summer to freeze or delay nearly $300 million in military aid to Cairo.  US intelligence tracked the weapons ship to Egypt in the summer of 2016 as it left North Korea with a North Korean crew and sailed westward toward the Gulf of Aden and the Suez Canal. The US sent a secret message to Egyptian authorities to alert them. The vessel flew Cambodian colors with a heavy tarpaulin covering its unknown cargo. Once the ship entered Egypt’s waters outside of the Suez Canal, Egyptian customs agents searched and discovered more than 24,000 rocket-propelled grenades and components for 6,000 more, hidden under chunks of iron ore. The weapons were North Korean copies of a rocket known as the PG-7, a variant of a Soviet warhead introduced in the 1960s.

Headline: Deadly twin suicide attack hits Damascus police station

A double suicide bomb attack hit a police station in Syria’s capital Damascus on Monday, state media said, with a monitor saying at least 11 people were killed. Damascus has been largely insulated from the worst of the violence during the country’s brutal six-year war, but several bomb attacks have shaken the city. Syria’s interior ministry said two suicide bombers had blown themselves up at the police station in the southern district of Midan, leading to the “deaths of a number of civilians and a number of policemen.” The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights , a Britain-based monitor of the war, said at least 11 people were killed in the attack, among them six police officers. The monitor also reported that a car bomb had been detonated during the attack, but state media made no mention of a third blast. Interior Minister Mohammed Shaar told reporters that one of the attackers had managed to enter the police station and reach the first floor of the building.

Headline: Monitor: IS Retakes Town in Homs Province

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Sunday that Islamic State fighters had seized control of the town of al-Qaryatayn in Homs province, part of a wider counterattack by the jihadists as they resist a fierce offensive in eastern Syria. There was no comment from the Syrian army on the report that Qaryatayn, 120 kilometers (70 miles) northeast of Damascus, had fallen. Syrian government forces recovered Qaryatayn from Islamic State some six months ago. The Observatory said Islamic State fighters had seized control of Qaryatayn in a surprise attack launched after its fighters had infiltrated the town.

Headline: Islamic State Torches Oil Wells in Northern Iraq

Islamic State militants set fire to three oil wells near Hawija, west of the oil city of Kirkuk, one of two areas of Iraq still under their control, military and oil officials said on Monday. Iraqi security forces were using bulldozers to control the fires started by the militants in the early hours of Saturday to slow the advance of U.S.-backed Iraqi forces and Shi’ite militia groups toward Hawija town, military officials said.  The Allas oilfield, 35 km (20 miles) south of Hawija, was one of the main sources of revenue for Islamic State, which in 2014 declared a caliphate in parts of Syria and Iraq. “Terrorists are trying to use the rising smoke to avert air strikes while retreating from the area towards Hawija,” said army Colonel Mohammed al-Jabouri. Military officials said the fire had been brought under control at one of the wells, while the other two were still burning. They said it would take about three days to put out the fires.

Headline: Iraqi forces seize airbase from ISIS near Hawija – army

Iraqi forces and Shiite paramilitaries captured an airbase from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) on Monday, the army said. The seizure gives Iraq a strategic foothold in the north of the country as the military pushes towards the town of Hawija. The Rashad airbase, which is around 30km south of Hawija, was used by the militants as a training camp and logistic base, according to Iraqi army commanders. Militants took control of the base in 2014. The facility “will play a key role for Iraqi forces by allowing helicopters to transport soldiers and arms in any future operation to maintain security in thenorth,” Reuters quoted army Lieutenant Colonel Salih Yaseen as saying.

Headline: ‘We don’t need EU anymore’ Erdogan hints Turkey will PULL Brussels membership application

TURKISH President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that he feels his country no longer needs European Union membership after relations between Ankara and Brussels broke down. Turkey has been in talks with the European Union for 12 years, debating whether the country can become a member of the bloc. Both parties agreed a deal in 2015 that would see Ankara take back failed asylum seekers in exchange for millions in cash. The deal was seen as a step closer to Turkey’s EU membership, however relations soured after Brussels condemned the country’s human rights laws following Ankara’s reaction to a failed coup. And Erdogan told his parliament on Sunday: “We don’t need EU membership anymore.” Still, the Turkish leader has not completely ruled out the idea of membership. He went on to say: “We will not be the side which gives up.” He also said Turkey is willing to become an EU member but only as a proper constitution of the union. Talks first started in 2005 regarding Turkey’s membership but negotiations have continuously stalled.

Headline: Iran sends tanks to border with Iraq’s Kurdish region, Kurdish official says

Iran deployed a dozen tanks supported by artillery at its border with Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region on Monday, a Kurdish official said, adding that the move was a dangerous escalation in the crisis triggered by Iraqi Kurdistan’s independence vote. “The tanks can be seen from the Kurdish side,” an official from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) security council told Reuters, adding that the move was a “dangerous escalation.” Iraq’s Kurds overwhelmingly voted for independence in a referendum held one week ago, defying the central government in Baghdad as well as neighboring Turkey and Iran, which fear Kurdish separatism within their own borders. The deployment at the Parviz Khan border point on Monday was part of joint military drills conducted by the Iranian and the Iraqi armed forces in response to the referendum, state media in Tehran said. The exercises began last Sunday, according to Iran’s Mehr news agency.

Headline: Kenyan Police Fire Tear Gas at Demonstrators

Kenyan police have fired tear gas at protesters who are calling for the ouster of election officials the demonstrators blame for the recent botched presidential election. Protests were held Monday in Nairobi, the capital, and the western city of Kisumu. A presidential spokesman has said the government will not replace the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, a decision that has angered the opposition, which has said the panel committed “criminal” acts and that most belong in jail. Last month, Kenya’s Supreme Court annulled the presidential election victory of incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta and called for new polls.

Headline: Catalonia to hold general strike in protest at police violence

More than 40 unions and Catalonian associations are calling for a general strike across the embattled region following widespread violence during the national police crackdown on the independence referendum Sunday. More than 840 people were injured in clashes with police after the Guardia Civil tried to close polling stations across Catalonia, violently removing people who were attempting to vote. In response, the Catalonian government has approved a ‘go-slow’ of public transport services, which will operate at 25 percent capacity during the morning and evening rush hours. Inter-regional transport services will reportedly operate at 33 percent capacity. The workers groups called for a ‘nationwide’ work stoppage across Catalonia on Tuesday October 3 in protest at the abuse of power by the Spanish National Police, the Guardia Civil, reports La Vanguardia. a 24-hour period of minimal service and advised those travelling to and from Catalonia on Tuesday to contact their airline and make all necessary preparations ahead of expected delays, according to a press release. The two most powerful national unions have called on workers to show solidarity in the face of “disproportionate” violence employed by the police and Guardia Civil but have not called for a Spanish general strike as the situation does not relate to a labor conflict but a political one.

Headline: Germany gay marriage: Couple are first to marry under new law

Two men have become the first gay couple to marry in Germany, on the day gay marriage became legal there. Karl Kreile and Bodo Mende, a couple for 38 years, exchanged their vows at the town hall in Schöneberg, Berlin. Registry offices in several German cities were opening, unusually, on Sunday to allow couples to wed on the first day it was legally possible. Getting married will give gay couples the same tax advantages and adoption rights as heterosexual couples. Germany has allowed same-sex partners to enter into registered partnerships since 2001, but these did not give couples exactly the same status in German law as marriage. The German parliament voted to introduce marriage equality in June, after Chancellor Angela Merkel unexpectedly dropped her longstanding opposition to parliament holding a vote on the issue.

Headline: Deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history

A gunman in a high-rise hotel overlooking the Las Vegas Strip opened fire on a country music festival late Sunday, killing at least 58 people and injuring hundreds of others in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. The gunman, identified by police as Stephen Paddock, was later found dead by officers on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said during a news briefing Monday. The massacre marked the nation’s latest outbreak of gunfire and bloodshed to erupt in a public place, again spreading terror in an American city transformed into a war zone. Lombardo said the death toll in Las Vegas had reached at least 58 by Monday morning, a number that could rise, as police are still investigating the scene. Lombardo also said an additional 515 people were injured, though he did not specify how many of the people were wounded by gunfire or injured in the chaos that followed. Paddock, 64, was found dead in his hotel room by Las Vegas SWAT officers, police said. They believe Paddock, who had checked in on Thursday, took his own life. Under the neon glow and glitz of the Vegas Strip, thousands of concertgoers who had gathered for a three-day music festival dove for cover or raced toward shelter when the gunfire began about 10 p.m. Sunday. Police said more than 22,000 people were at the concert when Paddock began firing round after round, shooting from an elevated position that left those on the ground effectively helpless. Police believe Paddock, a local resident, was a “lone wolf” attacker. Lombardo did not give further details on Paddock’s background and possible motivation, saying that police “have no idea what his belief system was.”

At a press conference, police said they were treating the two incidents as “acts of terror” and said that while they believed the attacker “acted alone” they were not ruling out that others may have been involved. Police have also confirmed an ISIS flag was seen in the suspect’s vehicle. Pictures from the scene of the first incident show a white Chevrolet Malibu smashed into the front of an Edmonton Police Service SUV outside the city’s Commonwealth Stadium, where more than 30,000 fans enjoyed the game. At about 8.15pm local time last night (3.15am UK time), the man got out of the vehicle and stabbed the officer, fled on foot and remained at large, police reportedly said.
