Iraqi forces make gains against Islamic State east of Ramadi | Reuters

BAGHDAD Iraqi forces recaptured territory east of Ramadi from Islamic State militants on Tuesday, linking the Anbar provincial capital to a major army base nearby, and officials appealed for international funding to help clear the city of explosives. Iraq's army declared victory in December over Islamic State (IS) in Ramadi after elite counter-terrorism forces seized the main government building, but it has taken weeks for the commandos to clear insurgents from the rural eastern outskirts. The recapture of Ramadi was the first major gain for the U.S.-trained force since it collapsed in the face of an assault by the ultra-hardline Sunni militants in 2014. #India #Islam #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #crisis

U.N. fears for hundreds of thousands if Syria troops encircle Aleppo | Reuters

GENEVA/ONCUPINAR, Turkey Hundreds of thousands of civilians could be cut off from food if Syrian government forces encircle rebel-held parts of Aleppo, the United Nations said on Tuesday, warning of a massive new exodus of refugees fleeing a Russian-backed assault. Syrian government forces, backed by Russian air strikes and Iranian and Lebanese Hezbollah fighters, have launched a major offensive in the countryside around Aleppo, which has been divided between government and rebel control for years. It amounts to one of the most important shifts of momentum in the five year civil war that has killed 250,000 people and already driven 11 million from their homes. #United States #Business #Syria #Latin America #crisis #opinion #graphics

Syria signals no ceasefire before borders with Turkey, Jordan shut | Reuters

BEIRUT Syria's foreign minister signalled on Saturday a ceasefire would be difficult or impossible before the borders with Turkey and Jordan were sealed, and before a list of terrorist groups operating in Syria is agreed. Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem, speaking in a televised news conference, said he was citing his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, who had said "a ceasefire would not be possible before the borders with Turkey and Jordan are controlled, and before agreement on lists of terrorist organisations, it is difficult to achieve that".
