A year after Gaza war: ruins, small joys and much to fear| Reuters

GAZA As the sun sets over Gaza, there isn't a table to be found on the terrace of the Roots hotel, with views overlooking the port and the gently crashing waves of the Mediterranean. Crowds have gathered for Iftar - the nightly breaking of the Ramadan fast - and the atmosphere is excited: young men and women taking photos on their iPhones, puffing apple-scented nargile pipes and watching a dance troupe as they dine on hummus, pita, chicken and sweet pistachio cakes. It is a far cry from the death and destruction that consumed Gaza a year ago, when Israel launched an air and ground assault to put an end to constant rocket fire by Hamas militants from Gaza. #Business #India #Environment #Egypt #science #Europe #Israel

Islamic State threatens to topple Hamas in Gaza| Reuters

CAIRO Islamic State insurgents threatened on Tuesday to turn the Gaza Strip into another of their Middle East fiefdoms, accusing Hamas, the organisation that rules the Palestinian territory, of being insufficiently stringent about religious enforcement. The video statement, issued from an Islamic State stronghold in Syria, was a rare public challenge to Hamas, which has been cracking down on jihadis in Gaza who oppose its truces with Israel and reconciliation with the U.S.-backed rival Palestinian faction Fatah. #Business #Israel #Latin America #Iraq #Entertainment #opinion

WASHINGTON U.S. President Barack Obama acknowledged on Tuesday that Iranian negotiators have talked about backtracking from a framework agreement on its nuclear programme, endangering ongoing negotiations to finalise the deal.
