BreakingNews @en di

The Palestinian political forces at Ain el-Hilweh held an emergency meeting today at the headquarters of the Democratic Front for the Political Leadership of the National and Islamic Forces, following the dispute that took place yesterday evening at the entrance of the camp and developed into shooting which resulted in the death of Mahmoud al-Sayyed and Mohammed al-Jandawi.  The meeting condemned what happened “because of its negative repercussions on our people in the camp and the neighborhood” and agreed to “withdraw all militants, especially from the market area”.

Washington seeking to tighten anti-Tehran sanctions.

BreakingNews @en di

A bipartisan group of US senators in Congress on Thursday introduced a bill that would impose tighter sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile tests and other non-nuclear activities. The legislation would set mandatory sanctions for anyone involved with Iran’s missile program and those who trade with them. It would also apply sanctions to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC). Iran, however, maintains that none of its missiles have been designed to be capable of carrying nuclear warheads, because nuclear weapons have basically no place in the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine. Iranian officials have underlined that the country will continue with its missile activity and that Tehran needs no permission from any country for enhancing its defense capabilities.

Iran steps up support for Houthis in Yemen's war.

BreakingNews @en di

Sources with knowledge of military movements declared Iran is sending advanced weapons and military adviser’s to Yemen’s Houthis and is taking a greater role in the civil war in Yemen. A senior Iranian official Major General Qassem Soleimani, commander of the Qods Forces, met top IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) offcials last month to look at ways to empower the Houthis through trainings, arms and financial support. Even if Iran rejects the accusations from Saudi Arabia, there are informations and evidence that the Iranians are smuggling weapons into the area and it is known that winning the battle in Yemen will help define the balance of power in the Middle East. Iran’s plan is to create a Hezbollah-like militia in Yemen and encircle the Saudis, reason why some Sunni Muslim countries in the Middle East were alarmed by Iran’s activities. A source also said Iran is sending weapons in Yemen using ships directly or via Somalia, bypassing coalition’s efforts to intercepts shipsment and once the ships arrive in the region, the cargoes are transferred to small fishing boats, very hard to spot.

Donald Trump Jr. criticizes London Mayor after deadly attack.

BreakingNews @en di

It has become something of an online custom in the social media age to react to tragic news stories — like Wednesday’s attack in London — with well-meaning if sometimes rote messages like “thoughts and prayers”. But that does not appear to be Donald Trump Jr.’s style. “You have to be kidding me?!” Mr. Trump said Wednesday afternoon on Twitter, as details of the episode — which left at least five dead, including the assailant, and 40 injured — continued to unfold. The message continued, “Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan”. Mr. Trump, the oldest son of President Trump, was calling attention to an article from September in The Independent, a British newspaper, that described Mr. Khan’s reaction to a bombing then in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City.

A Jewish teenager in Israel made a wave of threats to Jewish institutions in the United States and other countries in recent months, contributing to widespread fears of a spike in anti-Semitism, law enforcement officials said, after an international investigation culminated on Thursday in the arrest of the man, whose lawyer said he suffered from a brain tumor that affects his behavior. The 18-year-old suspect, who holds dual Israeli and American citizenship and lives in the Ashkelon area of southern Israel, had made threats to Jewish community centers and other sites in the United States, Australia and New Zealand, and to at least one commercial airline flight, forcing an emergency landing. His motives were not immediately clear.

US Senate confirms Trump nominee to be Israel envoy.

BreakingNews @en di

The U.S. Senate on Thursday narrowly confirmed President Donald Trump’s nominee to be ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, an outspoken bankruptcy lawyer aligned with the Israeli right. The vote was 52 to 46. That amount of opposition is highly unusual for a nominee for U.S. ambassador to Israel, a close ally of the United States. For decades, nominees from both Democratic and Republican presidents have been approved without objection, via unanimous consent or voice votes. Friedman, who has no diplomatic experience, is a longtime friend of Trump who worked for the Republican former New York businessman as a bankruptcy lawyer.

Erdoğan blasts ‘delusional’ one-man regime accusation ahead of referendum.

BreakingNews @en di

Claims that the constitutional change shifting Turkey to an executive presidential system will introduce one-man rule are “delusional”, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said. “This accusation is a fallacy, a delusion that arises from having nothing to say to the public”, Erdoğan said in a speech in the capital Ankara on March 23, addressing words from main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu. “Let’s assume that the president goes astray and tries [to establish] one-man rule.
