Headline: For first time in over two years, PA to hold cabinet meeting in Gaza

Headline: 67% of PA, Gaza Arabs Want Abbas to Resign, Replaced by Barghouti or Haniyeh

For the first time in more than two years, the Palestinian Authority will hold a cabinet meeting in the Gaza Strip next Tuesday, official PA media reported on Monday morning. “[PA] Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah, in consultation with President Mahmoud Abbas, issued a decision to hold the government’s weekly cabinet meeting in the Gaza Strip,” PA government spokesman Yousif Mahmoud said in a statement. The decision came just over a week after Hamas announced the dissolution of its governing body in the Gaza Strip, also known as the administrative committee, and invited the PA to take its place. Hamas has controlled Gaza since it ousted the Fatah-dominated PA in 2007 from the territory. Hamdallah and other members of the government are scheduled to arrive in Gaza on Monday “to begin assuming responsibility” for the territory, according to Mahmoud.

Headline: Report: Israel fires missile at Syrian aircraft over Golan

Arab media outlets have reported that a Syrian aircraft flying over the Syrian-controlled side of the Golan Heights near the border with Israel was targeted by an Israeli missile. According to the report, the incident took place over the town of Kuneitra on the Syrian-controlled side of the Golan. The Syrian aircraft reportedly evaded the missile and was unharmed in the incident. Subsequent reports in Arab media outlets claim an explosion was heard in the Kuneitra area following the missile launch. No Israeli sources have confirmed the reports.

Saudi Arabia

Headline: Saudis threaten fallout if Yemen probe passes

Saudi Arabia has threatened other countries over a proposed resolution at the U.N.’s main human rights body, saying if they send international, independent investigators to war-torn Yemen that could “negatively affect” trade and diplomatic ties with the wealthy kingdom, a Saudi letter obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press shows. Two competing resolutions — one by Saudi Arabia and other Arab states and another by Canada and the Netherlands — have been proposed on how to best document the human rights violations in Yemen. The resolutions are shaping up as the main diplomatic showdown at the Human Rights Council session that ends Friday. Saudi Arabia has sent a letter to at least two foreign countries warning that the Arab states “will not accept” the Dutch-Canadian resolution, which seeks an “international, independent investigation.” U.N. human rights chief Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein has repeatedly called for such an investigation.

Headline: US-backed Forces in Syria Say Russians Attacked Their Position

U.S.-backed forces in Syria’s eastern Deir el-Zour province say Russian forces struck their position in a field recently captured from Islamic State militants. Fighters with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said a Russian attack killed one of their fighters and wounded two others Monday in the Conoco natural gas field, which was taken from Islamic State fighters over the weekend. Russia has denied the report. Counter-Islamic State coalition spokesman U.S. Army Col. Ryan Dillon told VOA that initial reports could not confirm whether there were any casualties. The indirect surface-to-surface fire, he said, was believed to have come from either Syrian or Russian forces.

Headline: Erdogan warns of ‘ethnic war’ risk over Iraqi Kurdish independence

Headline: Iran vows to stand with Baghdad, Ankara against Iraqi Kurds’ independence push

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday warned the Iraqi Kurdish leader against pushing for independence after holding a non-binding referendum, saying such a move risked sparking an “ethnic war” in the region. “If (Massud) Barzani and the Kurdish Regional Government do not go back on this mistake as soon as possible, they will go down in history with the shame of having dragged the region into an ethnic and sectarian war,” Erdogan said in a televised speech. Iraq’s Kurds on Monday voted in a historic independence referendum despite fierce opposition from Baghdad and neighboring countries Iran and Turkey. Turnout was 72 percent, with 3.3 million of the 4.58 million registered voters taking part, election commission spokesman Shirwan Zirar said late Monday.
Results were expected within 24 hours, with an overwhelming ‘yes’ vote not in doubt.

Headline: US sees ‘no indication’ Iran launched a ballistic missile, despite Trump tweet

US intelligence radars and sensors “picked up no indication” of an Iranian ballistic missile launch in the days surrounding a reported test, according to a Trump administration official familiar with the latest US assessment. Iranian reports that the nation tested a new ballistic missile so far does not appear to be true, the official said, adding: “As far as we can see, it did not happen.” State-run broadcaster Press TV reported the launch on Saturday, according to footage broadcast on Iranian state television. “Iran has released footage of the successful test-launch of its new ballistic missile, Khorramshahr, a few hours after it was unveiled during a military parade in the capital city of Tehran,” Press TV said. But the telemetry, or electronic signals, of a ballistic missile launch would have been picked up by a variety of US assets in the region who keep an around the clock eye on Iran’s weapons activities, the official said. President Donald Trump tweeted about the apparent launch on Saturday: “Iran just test fired a ballistic missile capable of reaching Israel. They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!” The footage shown on Iranian television appears most likely to be a re-run of a previous test launch, the official said.

Headline: ISIS in Libya: Trump Orders First Airstrikes Near Sirte

The U.S. military said it killed 17 ISIS militants with six precision airstrikes in Libya, the first publicly announced American bombing in the country since President Donald Trump took office. The attacks targeted a desert camp around 150 miles southeast of Sirte, a city held by ISIS until December. “The camp was used by ISIS to move fighters in and out of the country, stockpile weapons and equipment, and to plot and conduct attacks,” the U.S. military said in a statement. The airstrikes occurred Friday but weren’t announced until Sunday. America’s last known strike on Libya was Jan. 19, one day before Trump’s inauguration. That attack was sanctioned by President Barack Obama. It also targeted ISIS camps southwest of Sirte and killed “several dozen” militants.

Headline: Sex diseases in US surge to record high

Sexually transmitted diseases surged to a record high in the United States last year, with more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea and syphilis nationwide, officials said Tuesday. This was “the highest number ever,” said the annual Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report released today by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most of the new cases — 1.6 million in 2016 — involved chlamydia, a bacterial infection that affects both men and women. Gonorrhea also increased among men and women last year, but the steepest rise was among men (22 percent), said the report. Nationwide, gonorrhea cases reached 470,000, with a large share of new gonorrhea cases among men who have sex with men. These trends are “particularly alarming” because of the growing threat of gonorrhea becoming resistant to the last recommended treatment, according to the CDC report.

Headline: Canada Passes Law Allowing Gov’t to Seize Children From Parents Who Oppose Gender Transition

Canada’s Ontario province has passed legislation that allows the government to seize children from families that refuse to accept their child’s chosen “gender identity” or “gender expression.” The so-called Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act of 2017, or Bill 89, was approved by a vote of 63 to 23, according to The Christian Times. It requires child protection, foster, adoption service providers, and judges to take into account and respect a child’s “race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, family diversity, disability, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.” “I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau, who introduced the bill, was quoted as saying. “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.” The bill replaces the Child and Family Services Act, or Bill 28, which governs child protection, foster care and adoption services. Bill 28 stated that the parent of a child in care retains the right “to direct the child’s education and religious upbringing.” However, the new law amends it thus: “to direct the child or young person’s education and upbringing, in accordance with the child’s or young person’s creed, community identity and cultural identity.”

Headline: Violent Crime in U.S. Rises for Second Consecutive Year

Violent crime, including homicides, rose for the second consecutive year in 2016, driven by increases in a few urban centers including Baltimore, Chicago and Las Vegas, according to F.B.I. data released Monday. Violent crimes increased nationally last year by 4.1 percent and homicides rose by 8.6 percent, one year after violence increased by 3.9 percent and homicides jumped by 10.8 percent. A total of 17,250 people were murdered in 2016, the F.B.I. said. While crime over all and violent crime remain well below their levels of the 1980s and 1990s, last year was the first time violent crime increased in consecutive years since 2005 and 2006, according to the F.B.I. data, which is collected from local police departments around the nation and released annually. Police officials and criminologists continue to express puzzlement about the upsurge. There is disagreement not only about the reasons for the increases, but also about how law enforcement should respond and whether the figures represent a blip or the start of a long-term trend.

The Red Cross says more than 42,000 people have been evacuated from their homes near an active volcano in Bali, as authorities warn it could erupt.
