Supporters of the Islamic militant Hamas have won student council elections at the West Bank's flagship university, Bir Zeit, defeating rivals from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement. The last Palestinian general election was held in 2006, and student council elections offer a rare gauge of the mood among future elites. Hamas and Fatah remain bitter opponents, despite repeated reconciliation attempts since Hamas seized the Gaza Strip from Abbas in 2007. Since the takeover, Abbas' security forces have been clamping down on Hamas in the West Bank. Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said Thursday that the Bir Zeit vote was "a referendum on the movement's strength" in the West Bank. The university says Hamas won 26 of 51 seats in Wednesday's vote, while Fatah was the largest faction last year. Source: Associated Press (AP) More»

Several hard-line rebel groups have launched a new offensive in northwestern Syria, less than a month after seizing control of the provincial capital. The conservative Islamic opposition factions, including the al-Qaida-affiliated Nusra Front, are coordinating the multi-pronged campaign whose primary target appears to be Jisr al-Shughour in Idlib province. Opposition fighters are also attacking government checkpoints in a plain south of the town and nearby military facilities. The Islamic rebel groups taking part in the operation posted a statement online late Wednesday announcing the start of the offensive, which they call "Battle of Victory." The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Thursday the rebels have taken five checkpoints since the offensive began, including two near Jisr al-Shugour. The new offensive comes some three weeks after rebels captured Idlib city. Source: Associated Press (AP) More»

Shia rebels in Yemen on Wednesday demanded a complete end to attacks by a Saudi-led coalition as a condition for UN-sponsored talks, a day after the alliance declared an end to the first phase of its operations. "We demand, after a complete end to the aggression against Yemen and the lifting of the blockade, to resume political dialogue... under the sponsorship of the United Nations," Mohammed Abdulsalam, the spokesman for the Houthi rebels, said in a statement. Saudi-led warplanes launched new strikes Wednesday on rebel positions in Yemen's third city Taez after the coalition had warned it stood ready to counter any advance by the rebels and their allies. The Houthi rebels' spokesman praised the United Nations' "positive efforts and its declared support for national dialogue". More»

Arab League military chiefs decided Wednesday to form a panel to examine all aspects of building a region-wide military force aimed at combatting jihadists, including the Islamic State (IS) group. The bloc agreed in March to set up the force, with members given four months to decide on its composition, precise rules of engagement and budget. Top brass gathered at League headquarters in Cairo decided "to set up a high-ranking committee under the supervision of army chiefs to examine all aspects of this issue," said a statement at the end of their meeting. "The panel will examine the mechanisms and budget needed to set up the joint Arab military force, and also the legal framework." More»

Saudi-led warplanes launched new strikes in Yemen Wednesday, hours after Riyadh announced a halt to the four-week air campaign, as rebels seized a key loyalist base in the third city Taez. The Saudi-led coalition had warned it stood ready to counter against any advance by the rebels and their allies even after it ended Operation Decisive Storm from midnight (2100 GMT Tuesday). Ground fighting between the rebels and forces loyal to exiled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi raged on in a string of battleground towns, including the second city of Aden as well as Taez, in a blow to US-led calls for renewed peace talks. In Taez, the rebels took advantage of the lull in air strikes to overrun the headquarters of the 35th Armoured Brigade, loyal to Hadi, which they had besieged for nearly a week, an army officer said.

Iraqi officials say a car bomb explosion near a car repair store in the capital, Baghdad, has killed seven people. Police officials say the bomb went off at noon Wednesday in the eastern district of Talibiyah. They say the blast also wounded 14 people and damaged several shops and cars. Security forces sealed off the area. A medical official confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the media. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Iraq sees near-daily attacks often claimed by the Islamic State group that captured large swaths of land in the country's north and west during a stunning blitz last year.

Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday it was ending a month-long campaign of air strikes against the Houthi rebels who seized large areas of Yemen and said it would back a political solution to bring peace to its war-ravaged neighbor. Iran, which has supported the fellow Shi'ite Houthis, welcomed the ceasefire, which followed months of factional fighting between the militant group and forces loyal to the government, which was driven out of the capital Sanaa. "Operation Decisive Storm has achieved its goals ...(including) removing the threat to Saudi Arabia and neighboring countries, especially in terms of heavy weapons," said a statement carried by Saudi state news agency SPA.
