Islamic State scores up gains and losses in Syrian fighting| Reuters

AMMAN Islamic State fighters stormed the Syrian town of Tel Abyad on the Turkish border on Tuesday and captured a neighbourhood from the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, but suffered setbacks in the northeastern city of Hasaka, a monitor and the army said. Islamic State has launched simultaneous attacks against Syrian government and Kurdish militia this past week in the multi-sided Syrian civil war after losing ground to Kurdish-led forces near the capital of its "caliphate". #Syria #markets #United Kingdom #crisis #Entertainment

Kuwait says in state of war with militants, warns of other cells| Reuters

KUWAIT Kuwait's interior minister said on Tuesday the Gulf Arab country was at war with Islamist militants and would strike out at cells believed to be on its soil. The ultra-radical Islamic State group claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing on Friday on a Shi'ite Muslim mosque in Kuwait City which killed 27 worshippers, the worst attack of its kind in the major oil-exporting state. Kuwaiti authorities have detained 60 people in connection with the bombing and closed a charity for alleged militant ties in raising funds for Syrians, local newspapers said on Tuesday. #Syria #Technology #Middle East #Crime #Latin America

US program to train Syrian rebels loses momentum: Less than 100 volunteers sign up

The U.S. military's program to train and equip thousands of moderate Syrian rebels is faltering, with fewer than 100 volunteers, raising questions about whether the effort can produce enough capable fighters quickly enough to make a difference in the war against the Islamic State. #World #US #Syria #NewsTracker #Syria rebels #Military training #islamic-state

U.S. says no evidence Jordan, Turkey considering Syria buffer zones| Reuters

WASHINGTON The United States has no "solid evidence" that Jordan and Turkey are considering seeking a buffer zone in Syria, the State Department said on Monday. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said there were "serious logistical challenges" in creating such buffer zones but he had not seen any concrete evidence either Jordan or Turkey, which both share borders with war-torn Syria, were considering such a zone.

French attack suspect: lone wolf Islamist or guy who flipped? | Reuters

PARIS Even as French investigators piece together a clearer picture of events that led on Friday to the beheading of a transport firm manager and attempted destruction of a chemicals plant, the real motivation of the chief suspect remains elusive. Yassin Salhi, the 35-year-old delivery man suspected of killing his boss, was a father of three with a permanent job and an apartment in a modest but peaceful suburb of the southeastern city of Lyon, and a clean criminal record. But Salhi had in the past frequented Islamic radicals and was one of thousands of hardliners who caught French authorities' attention among an overwhelmingly moderate Muslim population of five million. #Syria #Technology #France #Argentina #opinion

KUWAIT Kuwait on Sunday identified a suicide bomber who carried out the country's worst militant attack as a Saudi citizen and said it had detained the driver of the vehicle that took him to a Shi'ite Muslim mosque where he killed 27 people.
