BAGHDAD Iraqi forces regained ground from Islamic State militants in western Iraq on Sunday, advancing towards the city of Ramadi one week after it fell to the insurgents. A police major and a pro-government Sunni tribal fighter in the area said they had retaken the town of Husaiba al-Sharqiya, about 10 km east of Ramadi, with the help of Shi'ite paramilitaries. Shi'ite militias, Iraqi security forces and pro-government Sunni tribal fighters launched a counter-offensive on Saturday against the insurgents, who have pushed east towards a key military base after overruning Ramadi. #Economy #India #Syria #France #Africa #United Kingdom #Latin America #Iraq

Insight - Unable to halt Europe-bound migrants, Tripoli demands help| Reuters

TRIPOLI Europe cannot halt the deadly traffic of African migrants across the Mediterranean unless it ends a boycott of forces that have seized power in the Libyan capital and helps authorities there cope, the de facto government in Tripoli said. Chaos and civil war since NATO warplanes helped topple dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 have turned the North African country into the launching point for human traffickers smuggling tens of thousands of people across the Mediterranean. Libya's rulers have rounded up thousands of Europe-bound African migrants in makeshift detention centres #Business #Sports #United States #Syria #Technology #France #science #Argentina #Copyright #Entertainment #opinion

Life in Israel Caught amidst hostile neighbours, bad options

Without going into the compelling but competing narratives of why and how Israel landed in what seems a perpetually hostile dynamic, it is easy to see that it is surrounded by hostile neighbors and there is no strategic depth of geography. #HowThisWorks #Syria #Al-Qaeda #Israel #Golan Heights
