Syria opposition accuses Russia of using incendiary bombs in Syria | Reuters

UNITED NATIONS The Syrian opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC) called on United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday to launch an investigation into its accusations that Russia has repeatedly used air-delivered incendiary weapons in Syria. Russia deployed warplanes to Syria last year to support President Bashar al-Assad against rebels seeking to end his rule. A crackdown by Assad on pro-democracy protesters five years ago sparked a civil war and Islamic State militants have used the chaos to seize territory in Syria and Iraq. #Syria #Europe #markets #Crime #Iraq #crisis

FALLUJA, Iraq U.S.-backed Iraqi forces fighting Islamic State militants in Falluja are advancing towards jihadist strongholds in western districts where they expect the final push to recapture the city will take place, the Iraqi commander said on Monday. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi declared victory on Friday after troops reached the centre of the city, an hour's drive west of Baghdad, but an official in the U.S.-led coalition said on Sunday Iraqi forces had so far taken only half of Falluja. The operation to recapture the Iraqi city longest held by Islamic State entered its fifth week on Monday, and fighting has forced more than 85,000 residents to flee to overwhelmed government-run camps #science #Apple #markets #Iraq #article
