Islamic State group militants clashed on Saturday with US-backed fighters in the Syrian town of Manbij, pursuing their fierce defence of the jihadist stronghold and ignoring a deadline to leave. There are growing fears for the fate of civilians trapped in Manbij, formerly a key stop along IS's supply route from neighbouring Turkey into its self-styled Islamic "caliphate" in Syria. The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) penetrated the town one month ago but have since been hindered by a bloody IS counter-offensive amid concerns about civilians. On Saturday, IS jihadists appeared to ignore a 48-hour ultimatum to leave issued by the Manbij Military Council, a key SDF member. "The 48-hour period is over, and there will be no more opportunities like this one for Daesh (IS)," a commander from the council told AFP on condition of anonymity. IS has "not responded" to the SDF's offer and instead "attacked our positions", he said. The ultimatum came after at least 56 civilians, including children, were reportedly killed Tuesday in US-led coalition air strikes near Manbij. The commander pledged that his forces would "intensify our attacks on their remaining positions". The council's spokesman, Sherfan Darwish, stressed in an online statement Saturday that SDF forces in Manbij "are committed to securing safe passage to the best of their ability for any civilian able to flee Daesh (IS)'s brutality". Thousands of civilians have already fled Manbij, which is in Syria's northern Aleppo province. More than half of Syria's population has been displaced since the conflict erupted in 2011, and at least 280,000 people have been killed. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said SDF forces were advancing in Manbij, moving steadily north from districts they already control in the west and south. An SDF field commander inside Manbij told AFP on Saturday that the main clashes were "near the security quarter in the centre of the town". The civilian deaths in Tuesday's raids sparked an intense backlash from activists and rights groups, and a call from a prominent Syrian opposition body for the coalition to halt its air campaign until a thorough investigation is completed. The coalition has said it is investigating the reports of civilian fatalities in the town of Al-Tukhar, 14 kilometres (nine miles) from Manbij. Bombing raids have meanwhile continued unabated, with the Pentagon reporting nine strikes near Manbij on Friday. Coalition spokesman Colonel Chris Garver said Friday that IS was mounting an exceptionally tough fightback. The battle has intensified as SDF units move deeper into the town, he said, "which is sort of different than what we saw in Ramadi and what we saw in Fallujah", two Iraqi cities from which jihadists were ousted this year. "It's a fight like we haven't seen before." Garver estimated that the SDF had seized roughly half the town, an area still housing at least 2,000 civilians. IS was using residents "as human shields and as bait" in order to draw SDF fire towards civilians, Garver added. More»

Israel's Foreign Ministry says a senior official has met with a visiting former military general from Saudi Arabia. The meeting marks a rare public engagement between countries that have no official relations. Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon says Sunday that Director General Dore Gold met with Anwar Eshki at a Jerusalem hotel. Eshki currently heads a Saudi think tank in Jeddah but is believed to have close ties with the kingdom's rulers. Official government permission was likely necessary for him to make such an overt visit. More»

France will supply weapons to Iraq to support its fight against the Islamic State group, President Francois Hollande said Friday, but ruled out any troop deployment in the country. "This morning at the defence council, I took the decision as part of the anti-Daesh coalition to make weapons available to Iraqi forces," Hollande said, using another name for IS. "They will be there next month," he said following the meeting with a handful of ministers and the heads of the security forces. An aide to the president said the weaponry would include artillery batteries and that France would also send military advisors to train Iraqi forces in using them. More»

The battlefield momentum in Iraq and Syria has shifted against Islamic State, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday, but the international community must now also confront the challenge of stabilizing newly liberated areas. "The momentum has shifted," Kerry told an international conference to raise funds for Iraq at a critical juncture in the military campaign. "The new challenge that we face is securing and aiding for the recovery of a liberated area." Lise Grande, the United Nations' humanitarian coordinator for Iraq, warned that military victories will prove transient if the needs of Iraqis displaced by the conflict are not addressed. "The military campaign will have achieved a great short-term success, but perhaps little else of enduring impact," she said. The officials spoke as defense and foreign ministers gathered to also agree on next steps in the two-year-long fight against Islamic State, in particular the militant group's bastion in Mosul. The Iraq donor conference raised more than $2.1 billion in aid, State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement. The United Nations has said that, under a worst-case scenario, it could take $2 billion in relief and stabilization funds to deal just with the civilian impact of the Mosul battle and its aftermath.

Saudi Arabia's energy minister said on Sunday the kingdom always reacts to oil market supply and demand and it would continue to monitor crude markets for any developments. Khalid al-Falih also said that final agreements with foreign investors taking part in state oil giant Saudi Aramco's IPO-ARMO.SE huge ship repair and shipbuilding complex that it is developing at Ras al-Khair would be signed "over the next few weeks and months". The complex, on the kingdom's east coast, is due to be fully operational by 2021. Lamprell (LAM.L), Aramco, National Shipping Company of Saudi Arabia 4030.SE (Bahri) and Hyundai Heavy Industries (009540.KS) signed a potential partnership agreement relating to the yard earlier this year. Falih added that the world's largest oil exporter should own the largest oil shipping company, with a fleet that matches the kingdom's oil reserves and sales. He was speaking on the sidelines of an event marking the signing of an agreement between Bahri and Arab Petroleum Investments Corp. [APICO.UL] (APICORP) to launch a $1.5 billion investment fund that could buy up to 15 very large crude carriers (VLCCs). More»

Bahrain's highest court dissolved the country's main Shi'ite Muslim opposition group al-Wefaq, and liquidated the group's funds, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television reported on Sunday. The funds would be claimed by the state treasury, the report said. The decision advances a crackdown on the Gulf kingdom's opposition after the authorities closed down Wefaq and revoked the citizenship of a top Shi'ite cleric in June. More»

Saudi Arabia welcomed on Friday the release of classified pages of the official report on the Sept. 11 attacks, and hoped their release would clear up suspicions about Riyadh's actions, intentions or long-term friendship with the United States. "Since 2002, the 9/11 Commission and several government agencies, including the CIA and the FBI, have investigated the contents of the ‘28 Pages’ and have confirmed that neither the Saudi government, nor senior Saudi officials, nor any person acting on behalf of the Saudi government provided any support or encouragement for these attacks," Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, Abdullah al-Saud, said in a statement. "We hope the release of these pages will clear up, once and for all, any lingering questions or suspicions about Saudi Arabia's actions, intentions, or long-term friendship with the United States."
