Iraq PM Abadi retires two top generals after Islamic State conquests

BAGHDAD (Reuters) Iraqi Prime Minister Haider alAbadi retired two senior generals on Tuesday as part of an overhaul of the country's armed forces, which collapsed this summer in the face of Islamic State insurgents who seized wide areas of northern and western Iraq. The two commanders had been close allies of Abadi's predecessor, Nuri alMaliki, a Shi'ite Muslim widely blamed for sectarian rule that alienated Iraqi Sunni Muslims and abetted the rise of the ultraradical Sunni Islamic State insurgency. Sunni militants have overrun about a third of northern and western Iraq as well as neighbouring eastern Syria, massacring nonSunni prisoners and proclaiming a caliphate that erases national borders and is run on medieval Islamic precepts. #facebook #Politics #United States #China #Business #Japan #France #Middle East #Russia #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion

U.S. and Arab allies launch first strikes on fighters in Syria

WASHINGTON/BEIRUT (Reuters) The United States and its Arab allies bombed Syria for the first time on Tuesday, killing scores of Islamic State fighters and members of a separate al Qaedalinked group, opening a new front against militants by joining Syria's threeyearold civil war. In a remarkable sign of shifting Middle East alliances, the attacks encountered no objection and even signs of tacit approval from President Bashar alAssad's Syrian government, which said Washington had notified it in advance.
