Syrian rebel groups in Aleppo enter alliance - monitoring group

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Rebel groups fighting in Syria's northern Aleppo province have agreed to form an alliance, a group monitoring the country's civil war said on Thursday. A lack of unity among Syria's opposition groups has undermined the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad and made foreign powers wary of intervening in a conflict now in its fourth year. Many of the strongest factions are hardline Islamists such as Islamic State and the Nusra Front, al Qaeda's affiliate in Syria, who have clashed with one another and with more secular rebel groups #United States #India #Japan #Syria #Brazil #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #author

Corrected - Without help, Libya could become next Syria, foreign minister says

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - (Corrects name to al-Thinni in paragraphs 10, 11) Libya, torn by a growing political divide that threatens to engulf its oilfields, could become the next Syria if it does not patch its divided government and get help battling Islamic militants, the country's foreign minister said on Tuesday. "If we dont do the right thing now, in two years time we could have hopefully not a repeat of what happened in Syria in 2014 because the international community didnt react adequately," Foreign Minister Mohamed Dayri told Reuters in an interview #Business #Japan #Syria #Brazil #Government #markets #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #author

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
