Over 2,000 Syrians have died by drowning in an attempt to reach safety in Europe since the end of 2011, according to a new report. “From Death to Death,” a report by the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR), finds that 2,157 Syrian nationals have drowned off the coast of Libya en route to Europe since the outbreak of an uprising against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad. According to SNHR, over 75 percent of those who drowned have been women and children. The report finds that the number of refugees from Syria has now reached 5.8 million, equal to more than a third of the country’s population according to 2011 figures. The vast majority of Syrian refugees are hosted by neighbouring countries including Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon, which this year became host to the world’s second-largest population of refugees. More»

Shi'ite Muslim militiamen and Iraqi army forces launched a counter-offensive against Islamic State insurgents near Ramadi on Saturday, a militia spokesman said, aiming to reverse potentially devastating gains by the jihadi militants. The fall of Ramadi, the Anbar provincial capital, to Islamic State on May 17 could be a shattering blow to Baghdad's weak central government. The Sunni Muslim jihadis now control most of Anbar and could threaten the western approaches to Baghdad, or even surge south into Iraq's Shi’ite heartland. Anbar provincial council member Azzal Obaid said hundreds of Shi'ite fighters, who had assembled last week at the Habbaniya air base, moved into Khalidiya on Saturday and were nearing Siddiqiya and Madiq, towns in contested territory near Ramadi.

Saudi forces and Yemen's Houthi militia traded heavy artillery fire which blew up part of the main border crossing between the two countries overnight, residents said on Sunday, an escalation of the two-month war. The Haradh border crossing, the largest for passengers and goods between the world's top oil exporter, Saudi Arabia, and its impoverished neighbor, was evacuated amid shelling which razed its departure lounge and passport section, witnesses said. Residents of several Yemeni villages in the area left their homes and fled from the frontier, which has turned into a front line between the kingdom and the Iran-allied rebels. More»

Saudi Arabia on Saturday confirmed the suicide bomber who killed 21 worshippers at a Shiite mosque had links with the Islamic State group, in what the interior ministry called an attempt to promote sectarian strife. It was the deadliest attack in years to strike the Sunni-dominated kingdom, and marked the first time the jihadist IS group officially claimed an attack in Saudi Arabia. "His name was Salih bin Abdulrahman Salih al-Ghishaami, a Saudi national," the interior ministry said in a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency. "He was wanted by security services for belonging to a terrorist cell receiving directions from Daesh abroad," it said, using the Arabic acronym for IS. The militant group had already claimed the attack on Friday in Eastern Province, but it identified the bomber as Abu Amer al-Najdi. More»

UN members have failed to agree on an atomic weapons ban for the Middle East. A month-long review conference on the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty ended in failure on Friday after its members were unable to overcome disagreements on an atomic weapons ban for the Middle East, which the United States blamed on Egypt. After four weeks of negotiations at the United Nations on ways to improve compliance with the pact, there was no consensus among its 191 signatories. U.S. Under Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller announced there was "no agreement" and accused some countries of undermining the negotiations. More»

The World Bank has said that Gaza's economy is on the verge of collapse, with the highest unemployment rate in the world, with threat of disease very high. Gaza's economy is in a worse state than any other in the world, with unemployment at a global high, output contracting sharply and the long-term prospects worrying, the World Bank said on Friday. Repeated rounds of conflict, internal divisions and the embargo Israel and Egypt impose have left the territory "on the verge of collapse", the report sad, with its 1.8 million population facing poverty and destitution despite vast aid. "Blockades, the Israeli attacks and poor governance have strangled Gaza's economy and the unemployment rate is now the highest in the world," said the report, drafted by Steen Lau Jorgensen, the World Bank's director for Gaza and theWest Bank.

Egypt’s government and highest religious authority extended their deep condolences to the victims of the 'terrorist incident' in which the Shia Ali Ibn Abi Taleb Mosque in eastern Saudi Arabia was attacked by a suicide bomber on Friday. The attack resulted in the death of at least 21 and left more than 50 being treated for injuries, according to Reuters. A statement by the Egyptian Foreign ministry and Al-Azhar's Grand Imam Ahmed El-Tayeb strongly condemned the attack. "Egypt stands in solidarity with the Saudi government and the people in the face off the brutal terrorism," spokesperson for the Egyptian FM Badr Abdel Ati said in the statement. More»

A suicide bomber killed 21 worshippers during Friday prayers in a packed Shia mosque in eastern Saudi Arabia, residents and the health minister said, in an attack claimed by the Islamic State militant group. It was one of the deadliest assaults in recent years in the kingdom, where sectarian tensions have been frayed by nearly two months of Saudi-led air strikes on Shia Houthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen. More than 150 people were praying when the huge explosion ripped through the Imam Ali mosque in the village of al-Qadeeh, witnesses said. A video posted online showed a hall filled with smoke and dust, with bloodied people moaning with pain as they lay on the floor littered with concrete and glass. More than 90 people were wounded, the Saudi health minister told state television. "We were doing the first part of the prayers when we heard the blast," worshipper Kamal Jaafar Hassan told Reuters by phone from the scene. More»

Islamic State’s capture of the Iraqi city of Ramadi and the ancient Syrian town of Palmyra are no ordinary conquests. After weeks of fighting, Ramadi’s fall on Sunday delivered the jihadist group control over a strategic highway linking Iraq and Syria, and a haul of weapons abandoned by Iraqi forces. Three days later, the al-Qaeda breakaway group overran Syrian government troops to seize Palmyra, home to the ruins of a 2,000-year-old city that was one of the most important cultural centers of the ancient world. With the first anniversary of the declaration of its caliphate a month away, the victories put the militants on the front foot at a time when their leaders are seeking to dispel any sense of weakness after recent defeats. In Syria, it now controls half of the country’s territory and most of its oil and gas fields, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a U.K.-based group that monitors the conflict.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini that he is committed to a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, during a meeting in Jerusalem on Wednesday. "My position hasn’t changed. I don’t support a one-state solution. I don’t believe this is a solution at all. I support the vision of two-states for two peoples – a demilitarised Palestinian state that recognises the Jewish state," Haaretz quoted Netanyahu as saying. Netanyahu had used a quote from public speech he delivered in 2009 at Bar Ilan voicing his support for a two-state solution. This is the first time that Netanyahu has publicly declared a commitment to a Palestinian state since his new government was established last week. More»
