Russia said Sunday its latest Syria strikes hit infrastructure used by rebel fighters and claimed it has information of growing strife between rebel groups opposing President Bashar al-Assad. The defence ministry said its pilots flew 39 sorties and carried out 60 strikes in Hama, Latakia, Aleppo and Damascus provinces, slightly up on the previous day. Russian forces hit a "command point of one of the detachments of the Jaish al-Fatah (or Army of Conquest) terrorist organisation" in Kafr Zeita 40 km north west of Hama, the defence ministry said. "As a result of the airstrike, the running of the detachments of the Jaish al-Fatah terrorist organisation in this area, after which the fighters abandoned this combat area." More»

The head of Lebanon's Shia movement Hezbollah said on Sunday his group was fighting a "critical and definitive battle" in Syria with a greater presence than ever before. Hassan Nasrallah spoke during an event commemorating the death of leading Hezbollah figure Hassan Hussein al-Hajj, known as Abu Muhammad. According to Al-Manar television, which aired the speech, al-Hajj died on October 10 fighting in Sahl al-Ghab, a strategic plain in northwest Syria where Hezbollah has dispatched fighters in support of the embattled regime of Bashar al-Assad. Nasrallah said Hezbollah members fought "for 30 years on the border with Palestine and have now gone to Sahl al-Ghab, where Abu Mohammad died, to the borders with (Syrian provinces) Hama, Idlib, Latakia, and Aleppo."

A battalion of Sudanese troops arrived in Yemen's southern port city of Aden on Saturday, military officials said, bolstering Saudi-led Arab forces trying to keep out the Iran-backed Houthis and curb the growing presence of Islamist militants. Aden, a strategic port and shipping hub, became the seat of the Yemeni government earlier this year after the Houthis, a clan from northern Yemen which follows the Zaydi branch of Shia Islam, seized the capital Sanaa and forced President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi to flee to the south. A military source in Aden said that 300 Sudanese soldiers and officers arrived by sea on Saturday. Their purpose was to "help maintain security for the city against the Houthis and Saleh," the source said, referring to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh, whose supporters have sided with the Houthis. Hadi escaped to Saudi Arabia as the Houthis advanced towards Aden in March and has since been back only for a brief visit. But Prime Minister Khaled Bahah returned after anti-Houthi fighters, backed by the Arab coalition, drove the Houthis and their allies out of the city in July. However, they have not managed to restore security there. Islamist militant suicide bombers killed 15 people in attacks on the Yemeni government's headquarters and Arab coalition outposts in Aden on Oct. 6. "Our troops in Yemen are ready to do their military task under the command of the alliance military leadership," Sudanese army spokesman Brigadier General Ahmed Khalifa Alshami said. "Sudan is committed to restore legitimacy in Yemen." The Arab coalition says its aim is to restore Hadi's government to power in Yemen. At least 5,400 people have died since it began an air offensive in March. The Arab coalition spokesman, Brigadier General Ahmed al-Assiri confirmed the arrival of the Sudanese troops to Arab television channels. More»

Algeria, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Morocco, Qatar, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey, UAE, US and UK call upon all parties to the Libyan Political Dialogue to approve the political agreement brokered by UN Special Representative Leon before October 21st, the foreign ministers of the 13 countries released a joint statement Sunday. The parties to the dialogue face a stark choice. They can delay approval of the text and annexes or attempt to make further amendments, seeking a perfect solution which is probably unattainable, but putting at risk the stability of the country. Alternatively they can accept that the agreement is imperfect, but recognise that it will provide a period of stability to the country, in which time a new constitution can be agreed. New elections can then be held which will finally give Libya a fully representative, inclusive and democratic parliament whose legitimacy is acknowledged across the country and the world. The Libyan people have made it clear that want an end to instability in their country, instability which has led to the loss of lives, allowed terrorism to grow, and severely damaged the economy of the country. The international community looks forward to working with the Government of National Accord, at their request, in supporting the fight against terrorism, particularly ISIL and AAS. We urge all participants in the dialogue to seize the opportunity to end this instability by signing, and faithfully implementing, the political agreement and annexes, with no further amendments.

The aim of Russia's military operation in Syria is not to keep President Bashar al-Assad in power but to defeat Islamic State militants, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Saturday. Russia began air strikes in Syria in late September, in a move which Moscow says is weakening Islamic State militants but which Western powers say aims to support Assad. Some of Russia's air strikes have hit groups which are not affiliated to Islamic State but are trying to unseat Assad, and are backed by the United States and its allies. More»

Turkish fighter jets shot down an unidentified drone which entered its air space near the Syrian border, with the US military saying "all indications" showed that the unmanned vehicle was Russian. If confirmed, the presence of a Russian craft in the air space of the key NATO member would further ratchet up tensions over Moscow's behaviour in Syria. Russia denied it was to blame, despite repeated previous violations. The Turkish army said that the craft had been warned three times by Turkish planes but had maintained course. It was then "downed by fire from our aircraft on patrol, according to the rules of engagement." The statement did not say if the downed aircraft was manned or a drone. But a Turkish official told AFP in Ankara it was an "unmanned aircraft". More»

Palestinians set fire to a Jewish shrine in the occupied West Bank, and an attacker disguised as a journalist stabbed an Israeli soldier on Friday as tensions ran high after more than two weeks of violence. Shortly after the arson attack on the tomb of biblical patriarch Joseph, Palestinian protesters threw stones over the border of the Gaza Strip at Israeli forces who fired back, killing two and wounding scores of others in the crowd, Palestinian medical officials said. The worst outbreak in bloodshed in months has killed at least 37 Palestinians, including attackers and children in assaults and confrontations, and seven Israelis in stabbings and other attacks on buses and in the streets. The latest round of violence has been partly fueled by Palestinian anger at what they see as increased Jewish encroachment on the Al-Aqsa mosque compound in Jerusalem, holy to both Muslims and Jews. Many Israelis fear it is building into a full Palestinian intifada or uprising while Palestinian leaders have said a Israeli security crackdown amounts to collective punishment that will provoke more violence. Israel's military said about 100 people converged on Joseph's tomb in the Palestinian city of Nablus and set parts of it ablaze before Palestinian security forces arrived and pushed them back. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the attack on the shrine, venerated for centuries by Jews, Samaritans, Christians and Muslims, and ordered repairs and an investigation. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said he is ready to meet Abbas to help restore calm. GLOBAL CONCERN Underlining international concern, the U.N. Security Council said it would hold a special meeting to discuss the situation and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was due to meet Netanyahu in Germany next week, the Israeli ambassador to Washington said. Hours after the shrine attack, a Palestinian posing as a journalist wounded an Israeli soldier with a knife before being shot dead near the West Bank town of Hebron, the Israeli military said. Reuters television footage showed the Palestinian rolling on the ground and surrounded by Israeli troops after the attack. He was holding a knife and wearing a fluorescent yellow vest over a t-shirt marked "PRESS". The foreign press association in Israel and the Palestinian territories said it deplored the attack and called on Palestinian media organizations to verify all staff credentials. The Palestinian journalists union said the knife attacker had no links to any media outlets and urged Israel not to use the event as an excuse to attack its press members. In Gaza, the Israeli military said hundreds of people gathered along the border, some hurling rocks and burning tyres at the fence. A military spokeswoman said troops "are operating to prevent further escalation of violence using riot dispersal means and firing towards main instigators." Hamas, the militant Palestinian group which controls the Gaza Strip, had called for "rallies of anger and confrontations" on Friday in all West Bank cities. "Our decision is to pursue the intifada (uprising) and continue the resistance against the Israeli occupation," said Ismail Haniyeh, the group's leader in Gaza. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state, together with Gaza and the West Bank. Israel sees all of Jerusalem as its undivided capital. The last attempt at negotiations stalled in 2014. More»

The ISIS group is paying supporters up to $10,000 for each person that they recruit to wage jihad in Syria and Iraq, UN experts said Friday after a visit to Belgium, one of the main countries of origin for so-called foreign fighters. Elzbieta Karska, who chairs a UN group studying the issue, said IS is using social media and informal networks of friends and family, with many of them in Syria, to recruit new jihadists in Belgium. The UN experts learned from Belgian contacts that 500 foreign fighters in Iraq and Syria originated in Belgium, the highest per capita of any EU country, she added. "We have heard... about situations where recruiters were paid from two, three thousand to 10,000 dollars depending on... who was recruited," Karska told a press conference in Brussels, adding the findings were preliminary. "If somebody was well educated like computer specialists or doctors, they were paid more," the Polish human rights lawyer added. More»

Russia has hit more than 380 "ISIS targets" since launching its bombing campaign in Syria on September 30, a senior military official said on Friday. "Since the start of the operation we conducted more than 600 sorties and bombed more than 380 ISIS targets," Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov, a senior Russian General Staff official, told Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda. Russia launched a bombing campaign in Syria late last month in support of forces loyal to its longstanding ally President Bashar al-Assad. Moscow's military has almost uniformly claimed its strikes have hit "ISIS" targets despite the fact that many of the sites struck seem to fall outside territory held by the group. More»
