Two Months Of Violence Have Brought Iraq To The Brink Of Breakup, And World Powers Relieved By The Exit Of Long-time Premier Nuri Al-Maliki Were Sending Aid To The Displaced And Arms To The Kurds. Kurdish Forces Attacked The Islamic State (IS) Fighters Who Wrested The Mosul Dam From Them A Week Earlier, A General Told AFP. "Kurdish Peshmerga, With US Air Support, Have Seized Control Of The Eastern Side Of The Dam" Complex, Major General Abdulrahman Korini Told AFP, Saying Several Jihadists Had Been Killed. Buoyed By The Air Strikes US President Barack Obama Ordered Last Week, The Peshmerga Fighters Have Tried To Claw Back The Ground They Lost Since The Start Of August. The Dam On The Tigris Provides Electricity To Much Of The Region And Is Crucial To Irrigation In Vast Farming Areas In Nineveh Province. The Recapture Of Mosul Dam Would Be One Of The Most Significant Achievements In A Fightback That Is Also Getting International Material Support. A Day After The European Union Foreign Ministers Encouraged The Bloc's Member Countries To Send Arms To The Kurds, German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier Visited Iraq. Steinmeier, Whose Country Hosts The Largest Diaspora Of The Yazidi Religious Group In The West, Visited The Autonomous Region To Assess The Needs Of The Displaced, Many Of Whom Are Yazidis, And The Peshmerga. - Jihadists 'took Their Revenge' - Fear Of An Impending Genocide Against Members Of Iraq's Yazidi Minority, Whose Faith Is Anathema To The Sunni Muslim Extremists, Was One Reason Washington Cited For Air Strikes It Began On August 8. Senior Kurdish Official Hoshyar Zebari Said That In The Village Of Kocho, Jihadists On Friday "took Their Revenge On Its Inhabitants, Who Happened To Be Mostly Yazidis Who Did Not Flee Their Homes". Human Rights Groups And Residents Say IS Fighters Have Demanded That Members Of Religious Minorities In Iraq's Nineveh Province, Where Kocho Is Located, Either Convert Or Leave, Unleashing Violent Reprisals On Any Who Refused. Zebari Put The Toll At Around 80 People Killed In Kocho, While A Senior Official Of One Of Iraq's Main Kurdish Parties Said 81 People Had Lost Their Lives, And A Yazidi Activist Said The Death Toll Could Be Even Higher. The Village Lies Near The Northwestern Town Of Sinjar, Which The Jihadists Stormed On August 3, Sending Tens Of Thousands Of Civilians, Many Of Them Yazidi Kurds, Fleeing Onto Mount Sinjar To The North. They Hid There For Days With Little Food Or Water. Mohsen Tawwal, A Yazidi Fighter, Said He Saw A Large Number Of Bodies In Kocho On Friday. "We Made It Into A Part Of Kocho Village, Where Residents Were Under Siege, But We Were Too Late," He Told AFP By Telephone. "There Were Corpses Everywhere. We Only Managed To Get Two People Out Alive. The Rest Had All Been Killed." The Pentagon Announced That US Drones Had Struck An IS Convoy Leaving The Village On Friday After Receiving Reports That Residents Were Under Attack. The Outcome Of The Strike Was Not Immediately Clear. - Thousands Kidnapped, Says Amnesty - Amnesty International, Which Has Been Documenting Mass Abductions In The Sinjar Area, Says IS Has Kidnapped Thousands Of Yazidis Since It Launched Its Offensive In The Region On August 3. Members Of The Christian, Turkmen And Other Minorities Have Also Been Affected By The Violence. In New York, The UN Security Council Unanimously Adopted A Resolution Aimed At Weakening The Jihadists, Who Control Large Areas Of Neighbouring Syria As Well As Of Iraq. The Resolution "calls On All Member States To Take National Measures To Suppress The Flow Of Foreign Terrorist Fighters", And Threatens Sanctions Against Anyone Involved In Their Recruitment. When Jihadist Forces Began Their Iraq Offensive On June 9, Peshmerga Forces Initially Fared Better Than Retreating Federal Soldiers, But The US-made Weaponry Abandoned By Government Troops Turned IS Into An Even More Formidable Foe. The Militants Were Able To Sweep Through The Sunni Arab Heartland North And West Of Baghdad In June, Encountering Little Effective Resistance, And Iraqi Federal Security Forces Have Yet To Make Significant Headway In Regaining Ground. In Another Setback, A Roadside Bomb On Saturday Killed The Engineer Tasked With Repairing A Key Bridge North Of Baghdad, The Loss Of Which Has Hampered Operations Farther North. Many In And Outside Iraq Say The Shiite-led Government Was Partly To Blame By Pushing Sectarian Policies That Have Marginalised And Radicalised The Sunni Minority. Maliki Was Seen As An Obstacle To Any Progress, And His Announcement On Thursday That He Was Abandoning His Efforts To Cling To Power Was Welcomed With A Sigh Of Relief At Home And Abroad.

Speaking The Day After U.S. Warplanes Hit Militants In Iraq, Obama Said It Would Take More Than Bombs To Restore Stability, And Criticised Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki's Shi'ite-led Government For Failing To Empower Sunnis. "I Don't Think We're Going To Solve This Problem In Weeks. This Is Going To Take Some Time," Obama Told A News Conference In Washington. Islamic State Has Captured Wide Swathes Of Northern Iraq Since June, Executing Non-Sunni Muslim Captives, Displacing Tens Of Thousands Of People And Drawing The First U.S. Air Strikes In The Region Since Washington Withdrew Troops In 2011. After Routing Kurdish Forces This Week, The Militants Are Just 30 Minutes' Drive From Arbil, The Iraqi Kurdish Capital, Which Up To Now Has Been Spared The Sectarian Bloodshed That Has Scarred Other Parts Of Iraq For A Decade. The U.S. President Said Washington Would Continue To Provide Military Assistance And Advice To Baghdad And Kurdish Forces, But Stressed Repeatedly The Importance Of Iraq, Which Is A Major Oil Exporter, Forming Its Own Inclusive Government. Maliki Has Been Widely Criticised For Authoritarian And Sectarian Policies That Have Alienated Sunnis And Prompted Some To Support The Insurgency. "I Think This A Wake-up Call For A Lot Of Iraqis Inside Of Baghdad Recognising That We're Going To Have To Rethink How We Do Business If We're Going To Hold Our Country Together," Obama Said, Before Departing On A Two-week Vacation. Employees Of Foreign Oil Firms Have Been Leaving Arbil, And Kurds Have Snapped Up AK-47 Assault Rifles In Arms Markets For Fear Of Imminent Attack, Although These Have Proved Ineffective Against The Superior Firepower Of The Islamic State Fighters. Given The Islamic State Threat, A Source In The Kurdistan Regional Government Said It Had Received Extra Supplies Of Heavy Weaponry From The Baghdad Federal Government "and Other Governments" In The Past Few Days, But Declined To Elaborate. In Their Latest Advance Through Northern Iraq, The Islamic State Seized A Fifth Oil Field, Several Towns And Iraq's Biggest Dam, Sending Tens Of Thousands Fleeing For Their Lives. An Engineer At The Mosul Dam Told Reuters That Islamic State Fighters Had Brought In Engineers To Repair An Emergency Power Line To The City, Iraq's Biggest In The North, That Had Been Cut Off Four Days Ago, Causing Power Outages And Water Shortages. "They Are Gathering People To Work At The Dam," He Said. A Dam Administrator Said Militants Were Putting Up The Trademark Islamic State Black Flags And Patrolling With Flatbed Trucks Mounted With Machineguns To Protect The Facility They Seized From Kurdish Forces Earlier This Week. RELIEF SUPPLIES The Islamic State, Comprised Mainly Of Arabs And Foreign Fighters Who Want To Reshape The Map Of The Middle East, Pose The Biggest Threat To Iraq Since Saddam Hussein Was Toppled By A U.S.-led Invasion In 2003. The Sunni Militants, Who Have Beheaded And Crucified Captives In Their Drive To Eradicate Unbelievers, First Arrived In Northern Iraq In June From Syria Where They Have Captured Wide Tracts Of Territory In That Country's Civil War. Almost Unopposed By U.S.-trained Iraqi Government Forces Who Fled By The Thousands, The Insurgents Swept Through The Region And Have Threatened To March On Baghdad With Iraqi Military Tanks, Armoured Personnel Carriers And Machineguns They Seized. The U.S. Defense Department Said Two F/A-18 Warplanes From An Aircraft Carrier In The Gulf Had Dropped Laser-guided 500-pound Bombs On Islamic State Artillery Batteries. Other Air Strikes Targeted Mortar Positions And An Islamic State Convoy. Obama Has Said This Was Needed To Halt The Islamist Advance, Protect Americans In The Region As Well As Hundreds Of Thousands Of Christians And Members Of Other Religious Minorities At Risk. U.S. Military Aircraft Dropped Relief Supplies To Members Of The Ancient Yazidi Sect, Tens Of Thousands Of Whom Have Collected On A Desert Mountaintop Seeking Shelter From Insurgents Who Had Ordered Them To Convert To Islam Or Die. Highlighting Their Predicament, More Than 300 Yazidi Families In The Villages Of Koja, Hatimiya And Qaboshi Have Been Threatened By Death Unless They Change Religion, Witnesses And A Yazidi Lawmaker Told Reuters On Saturday. Following The U.S. Example, Britain And France Also Pledged On Saturday To Deliver Humanitarian Supplies To People Trapped By The Militant Advance. British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond Said London Was Especially Concerned By The Fate Of Yazidis Who Are Cornered In Their Ancient Homeland Of Sinjar In Mountainous Northern Iraq. "We Are More Widely Looking At How To Support This Group Of People And Get Them Off That Mountain," He Told The BBC. The Islamic State's Campaign Has Returned Iraq To Levels Of Violence Not Seen Since A Civil War Peaked In 2006-2007 During The U.S. Occupation. The Territorial Gains Of Islamic State, Who Also Control A Third Of Syria And Have Fought This Past Week Inside Lebanon, Has Unnerved The Middle East And Threatens To Shatter Iraq, A Country Split Between Mostly Shi'ites, Sunnis And Kurds. The Semi-autonomous Kurdish Region Has Until Now Been The Only Part Of Iraq To Survive The Past Decade Of Civil War Without A Serious Security Threat. Its Vaunted "peshmerga" Fighters – Those Who "confront Death" – Also Controlled Wide Stretches Of Territory Outside The Autonomous Zone, Which Served As Sanctuary For Fleeing Christians And Other Minorities When Islamic State Fighters Stormed Into The Region Last Month. But The Past Week Saw The Peshmerga Crumble In The Face Of Islamic State Fighters, Who Have Heavy Weapons Seized From Fleeing Iraqi Troops And Are Flush With Cash Looted From Banks.

REUTERS/Omar Ibrahim By Patrick Markey And Aziz El Yaakoubi TRIPOLI (Reuters) – A U.N. Delegation Held Talks In Tripoli On Friday To Try To Broker A Ceasefire Between Armed Factions That Have Turned The Libyan Capital And Benghazi Into Battlegrounds. The Violence Has Sharpened Libya's Political Divisions, And On Friday Several Thousand People Marched In Tripoli, Benghazi And Misrata, To Protest Against The Newly Elected Parliament That Western Countries Hope Will Facilitate Reconciliation. The U.N. Delegation, Led By A Representative Of The United Nations Mission In Libya, UNSMIL, Aims To End The Violence, Help Displaced Libyans And Alleviate Shortages Of Food And Basic Services, It Said In A Statement. "UNSMIL Is Working Closely With The International Community In A Joint Effort To Achieve A Durable And Sustainable Ceasefire," It Said, Giving No Details On Whom U.N. Officials Were Meeting In Tripoli. The United Nations And Most Western Countries Have Pulled All Of Their Diplomats Stationed In Libya To Escape The Worst Fighting Since Muammar Gaddafi's Fall Three Years Ago. There Was Sporadic Shelling On Friday In The Capital, One Of The Quietest Days Since The Clashes Erupted Between Islamist-allied Misrata Brigades And Fighters From The Western Town Of Zintan Who Control The International Airport. Benghazi Was Also Quieter A Week After An Alliance Of Islamist Fighters And Former Rebels Took A Special Forces Army Base And A Police Headquarters. Since The Fall Of Gaddafi, Libya's Fragile Government Is Unable To Impose Authority On Groups Of Former Rebels Who Refuse To Disband And Are Allied With Competing Political Factions Battling For Post-war Dominance. Even If A Ceasefire Is Reached, A Broader Political Agreement Between The Two Factions May Prove Elusive. Political Fighting Between Libya's Islamist Forces And A More Nationalist-leaning Alliance Paralysed The Last Parliament, In Which The Islamist Justice And Construction Party, Seen As Close To The Muslim Brotherhood, Was More Influential. The Newly Elected House Of Representatives Which Replaced The General National Congress, Has Been Holding Sessions In The Eastern City Of Tobruk, Far From The Clashes In Libya's Two Main Cities, And Has Called For A Unity Government. Islamist Factions Have Rejected The Sessions Held In Tobruk As Unconstitutional. STREET PROTESTS Several Thousand People Rallied In Tripoli, Benghazi And Misrata Against The Congress, And Tripoli's Police Fired Into The Air To Disperse The Crowd When Other, Pro-parliament Protesters, Charged Their Rivals. Armoured Police Trucks Closed Off Streets In Central Tripoli When Rival Protesters Opened Fire Or Tossed Bricks At Each Other. Fighting Since Last Month Over Tripoli Airport Involves Two Loose Factions Of Ex-rebels. On One Side Are Zintanis, Including Some Former Gaddafi Forces, Who Present Themselves As A Bastion Against Islamist Fundamentalists And The Muslim Brotherhood. Against Them Are Brigades From The Western Port Of Misrata, Allied With Islamist Political Forces And Other Militias, Who Say They Are Fighting To Clear Out Remnants Of Gaddafi's Army. Zintan Forces, Who Control The Airport, Have Said They Are Ready For A Ceasefire, But Misrata Forces Say They Will Not Accept Any Agreement Until The Zintan Forces Leave Tripoli. Acting Prime Minister Abdullah Al-Thinni Said Libya Was At A "crossroads", And Called On Western Countries To Help The Country Build Its Army And State Institutions. "To Be Honest, Western Countries Do Not Want Any Military Intervention Because Of What Happened In The Other Countries Such As Syria And Iraq," He Told Al-Hurra Television In An Interview Conducted In Washington Where He Was Meeting U.S. Officials. "But We Asked For More Involvement In The Libyan Issue, As The International Community Already Moved To Help The Libyan Revolution. So They Should Complete The Process Of Building The Libyan State And Its Institutions."

The Fate Of The Civilians, Many Of Them From The Yazidi Minority Who Fled To The Sinjar Mountains After An Attack By The Islamic State (IS) Group At The Weekend, Has Sparked International Concern. In Raids West And North Of Their Main Iraqi Hub Of Mosul In Recent Days, IS Fighters Took Over The Towns Of Sinjar And Zumar, Further Secured The Border With Syria By Seizing Rabia, And Bagged Several Oilfields In The Process. As Part Of The Fightback, An Iraqi Government Airstrike Smashed A Hole In A Mosul Building The Jihadists Had Been Using As A Sharia (Islamic Law) Court, Military Spokesman Qassem Atta Said. Sinjar He Claimed 60 Islamic State Militants Had Been Killed And 300 Prisoners, Serving Sentences For Such Violations As Smoking Or Wearing "Western" Clothes, Set Free By The Strike. Witnesses In Mosul Confirmed The IS Tribunal Had Been Hit But More Details Were Not Immediately Available. A Senior Official From Iraq's Patriotic Union Of Kurdistan (PUK) Party Said Kurdish Fighting Units From The Homegrown Peshmerga, The Syrian-based PYD And The Turkish PKK Had Agreed To Share Responsibility For The Ongoing Counter-offensive. "The Fighters Of West Kurdistan And The PKK Are Responsible For Confronting Daash (IS's Former Arabic Acronym) In Rabia And The Sinjar Area," Said Hallo Penjweny, The PUK's Top Official For The Mosul Region. "On Our Side, We Are Taking Care Of Zumar And The Rest Of The Area North And East Of Mosul," He Told Reporters. Sinjar Is West Of Mosul, Iraq's Second City. West Kurdistan Refers To The Syrian Democratic Union Party (PYD), Which Claims It Has Already Retaken Rabia But It Remains Unclear How Much Progress It Has Made In The Sinjar Area. Another PUK Official Warned It Could Be Some Time Before All The Civilians Can Be Rescued. "The PKK Is Working To Open A Safe Passage For The Displaced; It Is Not Easy And It Will Require Days," Harem Kamal Agha Told AFP. - Hunting Animals - Abu Abbas, A 50-year-old Irrigation Ministry Employee Who Fled Sinjar To Kurdistan, Told AFP About The Plight Of His Children And Other Relatives Trapped In The Barren Sinjar Range. "The Biggest Problem Now Is That They Have No Food. They Have Started Hunting Small Animals In The Mountains And They Eat Anything They Can Find," He Said. "Several Children Have Died Already And Been Buried In The Mountain. All The Women Are Giving Their Milk To The Children, Regardless Of Whether They Are Yazidi, Muslim Or Christian." "The Elders Who Know Some Old Natural Springs Are Searching The Mountain But It's Dangerous. On The Other Side, Daash Is Waiting For Them. I Think It Will Be Difficult For Any Of Them To Survive Longer Than Two Or Three More Days," He Said. Abu Abbas Said He Had Received Scant Information On Wednesday Because His Relatives' Phone Batteries Had Run Out. Iraqi Government Officials Said 77 Tonnes Of Food And Water Had Been Air-dropped Since Tuesday. The Peshmerga Are Considered The Most Able Military Force In Iraq, But Their Regional Government Has Been Cash-strapped And They Have Struggled To Hold The Territory They Grabbed When Federal Soldiers Retreated In The Face Of An Initial IS Onslaught Two Months Ago. Their Withdrawal From Sinjar After Hours Battling IS Militants, Left Civilians Running For Their Lives. Notable Among Them Are Yazidis, Who Are Stigmatised As "devil-worshippers" By The Jihadists Because Of Their Unique Blend Of Beliefs And Practices. - Kurdish Unity - A Yazidi Lawmaker Broke Down In Tears During A Parliamentary Session Tuesday As She Urged The Government And The International Community To Save Her People From Being Massacred Or Starved Into Extinction. "We Are Being Slaughtered; Our Entire Religion Is Being Wiped Off The Face Of The Earth. I Am Begging You, In The Name Of Humanity," Said Vian Dakhil. The Peshmerga Are Grappling With IS Attacks Hundreds Of Kilometres (miles) Further Down The Front But Also East Of Mosul, Only A Few Dozen Kilometres From The Kurdish Capital Arbil. The Iraq's Army Sluggish Fightback And Mounting Concern That The IS Would Seek To Consolidate And Expand Its Self-proclaimed "caliphate" Straddling Syria And Iraq Have Led To The Unprecedented Kurdish Coordination. The Military Leader Of The PKK, Who Is Hosted In Iraq's Kandil Mountains By The Autonomous Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), Called Tuesday For A Coordinated Effort. "Let's Form A Joint Command. Let's Make Preparations And Take IS Out Of The Areas It Occupied, Including Sinjar. This Is Possible," Murat Karayilan Said. In Further Violence Across Iraq On Wednesday, At Least 48 People Were Killed In A String Of Incidents, Including Four Car Bombs In Baghdad, According To Security And Medical Sources.

But The Conflict Did Not End, It Only Changed. Israel Kept Expanding Settlements In The West Bank Where The Palestinians Also Seek A State. Hardline Islamists Seized Control Of Gaza In 2007 And Periodic U.S. Efforts To Broker A Permanent Peace Between Israel And The Palestinian Authority Under Secular President Mahmoud Abbas Have Proved Fruitless. In The Diplomatic Vacuum, Confrontation Has Festered. Israel Sealed Gaza In An Economically Choking Blockade And The Territory's Ruling Hamas Movement And Other Militant Factions Fired Rockets With Increasing Frequency And Range, Though Not Accuracy, Into The Jewish State. Israel In Turn Has Bombarded Gaza Countless Times From The Air And Sent In Armoured Columns On Occasion To Ferret Out And Destroy Rocket Batteries And Tunnels Used To Smuggle In Arms From Egypt Or Infiltrate Israel For Guerrilla Ambushes. Mediated Ceasefires Under Which Israel Pulled Out Forces And Rocket Fire Abated Brought Periods Of Relative Calm, Only For The Two Sides To Relapse Into Bouts Of Bloodshed. Conflict Management Has Won Out Over Peacemaking. Israel's Current Gaza Incursion, In Which It Aims To Cripple The Hamas Rocket And Tunnel Threat Before Western Opprobrium Over A Soaring Palestinian Civilian Death Toll Boils Over And Forces It To Pull Back, Echoes Past Offensives Since 2007. At Least 1,410 Palestinians Had Been Killed In Three Weeks, Mostly Civilians In Packed Urban Areas Hammered By Israeli Air Strikes And Shelling. The Scale Of Destruction Of Palestinian Housing And Infrastructure Is Greater Than In Past Offensives. Israel Has Lost 56 Soldiers And Three Civilians Who Were Hit By Crashing Rockets Launched Over The Gaza Border. As In Previous Gaza Wars, The Toll Of Death And Destruction Has Been Lopsided Because Of Israel's Huge Superiority In State-of-the-art Firepower And Its Iron Dome Missile Defence Shield, Which Has Shot Down Most Rockets Streaking Towards Its Cities. But The Broader Strategic Environment Has Changed, Making It Harder To Prod Israel And Hamas Into Downing Their Weaponry. Hamas Feels Cornered By Its Rift With Syria, Cooler Ties With Iran And The Toppling Of Its Muslim Brotherhood Patrons In Egypt. Israel, Having Spurned U.S. Peacemaking Efforts As Ties With Washington Turned Frostier Than For Many Years, Has Vowed A Long Battle If Necessary To Neutralise Its Gaza Adversary. Unlike In The 2008-09 Gaza War, There Has Been No Serious World Pressure – Beyond Mild Rebukes And U.N. Remonstrations – To End The Hostilities. The United States And The Main European Countries Have Underlined "Israel's Right To Defend Itself". Major Powers Are Distracted And Divided By Other Crises Over Russia's Role In Ukraine, Reawakening Old Cold War Antagonisms, And The Stunning Advance Of Jihadi Insurgents In Iraq And Syria. Middle East Power Brokers Are Polarised Over How To Stop The Region's Descent Into Disorder After "Arab Spring" Revolts That Overthrew Long Stable Autocratic Regimes. [ID:nL6N0Q54LT] Gaza Truce Talks Are Further Complicated By The Fact That Israel And The United States Ostracise Hamas As A Designated Terrorist Group That Refuses To Recognise Israel's Right To Exist, While The Intermediaries – Egypt, Qatar And Turkey – Disagree Over How Much Leeway To Grant To Islamists. Following Is A Comparison Of The Current Gaza Conflict With Two Previous Major Outbreaks Of War Since 2007. DECEMBER 2008-JANUARY 2009 In What Became The Most Deadly And Destructive Conflict Over Gaza Since Israel Captured The Wedge Of Territory In The 1967 Middle East War, The Israelis Launched Air Strikes And Artillery Barrages On Dec. 27 And Invaded With Tanks And Troops On Jan. 3. The Stated Goal Was To Stop Islamist Rocket Fire Into Israel And Destroy Cross-border Tunnels Used By Militants To Smuggle In Arms From Egypt And Stage Ambushes Inside The Jewish State. The Palestinian Death Toll Was 1,417, More Than Half Of Them Civilians. Thirteen Israelis, 10 Of Them Soldiers, Were Killed. Israeli Forces Targeted Hamas Bases, Training Camps And Security Premises. Civilian Infrastructure Including Mosques, Houses, Medical Centres And Schools Were Also Hit As Alleged Militant Hideouts. Hamas Rocket Salvoes Reached Farther Than Before, Hitting Cities Like Beersheba And Ashdod. Israel Declared A Unilateral Truce On Jan. 17 And Hamas, Islamic Jihad And Other Smaller Militant Factions Followed Suit A Day Later. The Last Israeli Forces Left Gaza On Jan. 21. Both Sides Claimed Victory. Rocket Fire From Gaza Was Reduced, Though Not Eliminated. Israel's Reputation, However, Took A Heavy Hit With Widespread Criticism Of The Large Number Of Civilian Casualties And Severe Damage To Gaza Infrastructure. A U.N. Fact-finding Mission Led By South African Judge Richard Goldstone Accused Both Israel And Gaza Militants Of War Crimes And Possible Crimes Against Humanity Over Alleged Targeting Of Civilians And Using Them As Human Shields. Israel Refused To Cooperate With The Inquiry And Denounced Its Conclusions As Biased And Flawed. NOVEMBER 2012 Israeli Forces Stormed Into Gaza On Nov. 14 After Tit-for-tat Clashes Including An Ambush Of An Israeli Border Patrol And The Killing Of Hamas's Military Commander In An Air Strike. A U.N. Human Rights Council Report Said 174 Palestinians Were Killed In Three Weeks Of Fighting, 107 Of Them Civilians. Six Israelis Were Killed, Four Of Them Civilians In Rocket Fire On Towns Near The Gaza Frontier. The Israeli Military Said It Hit More Than 1,500 Rocket Launchpads, Weapons Depots, Hamas Government Premises And Other Targets In Gaza. Hamas And Its Allies Fired Rockets At Tel Aviv, Putting Israel's Main City Under Air Attack For The First Time Since 1991, When Saddam Hussein's Iraq Fired Scud Missiles. Israel Said Over 400 Rockets Were Intercepted By Its Iron Dome Shield. Many Others Landed In Uninhabited Areas. A Ceasefire Was Struck On Nov. 21, Brokered By Egypt And The United States. Both Sides, Again, Claimed Victory. Israel Said It Had Crippled Hamas's Rocket-launching Ability While Hamas Said Israel's Option Of Invading Gaza Had Ended. JULY 2014 This Year's War Was Triggered By Events Outside Gaza. Three Jewish Seminary Students Kidnapped While Hitch-hiking In The Occupied West Bank Were Found Murdered. Israel Blamed Hamas And Rounded Up Hundreds Of Suspects. In Revenge, Israelis Abducted A Palestinian Youth, Killed Him And Burnt His Body. Palestinian Protesters Battled Israeli Security Police In Jerusalem And The West Bank, Gaza Militants Intensified Rocket Fire Into Israel – And The War Was On. Israel Began By Bombarding Gaza Targets, Launching A Ground Offensive A Week Later When Hamas Refused To Stop Firing. Ground Assaults On Residential Areas, Preceded By Warnings To Evacuate, Displaced More Than 200,000 Of Gaza's 1.8 Million Palestinians. Power And Water Supplies Were Crippled. As Before, Controversy Erupted Over Alleged Indiscriminate Israeli Barrages That Killed Entire Families In Their Homes And Hit Two Schools Run By The U.N. Refugee Agency UNRWA, Killing Dozens Of Palestinians In Designated Shelters. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Condemned The Carnage At The Schools. U.N. Officials In Gaza Reported Finding Caches Of Rockets Inside Three Other UNRWA Schools. As In The Past, Israel Said Its Forces Did Their Utmost To Avoid Civilian Casualties And Accused Hamas Of Putting Its People In Harm's Way By Waging Combat In Their Midst. The United States And The U.N. Security Council Have Urged An Immediate, Unconditional Ceasefire To Allow Humanitarian Relief And Talks On A Durable Cessation Of Hostilities. The Shelling Of A U.N. Facility In Gaza This Week By The Israeli Military Is "totally Unacceptable And Totally Indefensible" And Israel Needs To Do More To Protect Innocent Civilians, A White House Spokesman Said On Thursday. [ID:nL2N0Q61XE] The Obama Administration, However, Has Allowed Israel To Tap A Local U.S. Arms Stockpile To Replenish Grenade And Mortar Stocks Depleted During Its Offensive, U.S. Officials Said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Said On Thursday He Would Accept No Truce That Stopped Israel Completing The Destruction Of Militants' Infiltration Tunnels. [ID:nL6N0Q613W] Both Sides Are Setting Truce Terms Harder To Reconcile Than In The Past. Israel Wants Gaza "demilitarized", Although That Would Be Hard To Enforce Barring An Indefinite Re-occupation Of The Territory. Hamas Is Demanding An End To The Gaza Blockade And The Release Of Prisoners Seized In The West Bank.

Yacoub, Associated Press | Associated Press – 3 Hours Ago Share 0Tweet0 Share0 Print View Photo FILE – In This Dec. 28, 2005 File Photo, An Iraqi Airways Plane Sits On The Tarmac … BAGHDAD (AP) — European Airlines And A Dubai-based Carrier Are Rerouting Flights Over Iraqi Airspace As A Security Precaution Amid Fears That Militants With The Islamic State Group Have Weapons Capable Of Shooting Down Planes, Despite Iraq Saying Its Skies Are Safe. A Number Of European Carriers, Including Virgin Atlantic, KLM And Air France, Say They Have Devised Alternate Flight Plans For Their Planes. Air France Specifically Said It Detected A “potential Threat” On July 24 Which Triggered The Airline’s Decision, Said Eric Prevot, A Spokesman For The Air France’s Flight Operations Center. The Decisions Come After A Malaysia Airlines Flight Crashed Over Rebel-held Territory In Eastern Ukraine On July 17, Killing All 298 People On Board. U.S. And Ukrainian Officials Say It Was Shot Down By A Missile From Rebel Territory, Most Likely By Mistake. The Ukraine Crash Has Many In The Aviation Industry Reconsidering Flight Paths As Hot Spots From West Africa To Central Asia Could Potentially Put Passengers At Risk. Though Experts Say The Skies Are Largely Safe, There Is A Danger Of Militants Using Sophisticated Weapons. Iraq Is Facing Its Worst Crisis Since The 2011 Withdrawal Of U.S. Troops Amid The Blitz Offensive Launched Last Month By Al-Qaida Breakaway Islamic State Group, Which Captured Large Swaths Of Land In The Country’s West And North, Including Iraq’s Second-largest City, Mosul. When The Group Overran The Cities Of Mosul And Tikrit In June, Iraqi Security Forces Virtually Collapsed. In Most Cases, Police And Soldiers Simply Ran, Abandoning Arsenals Of Heavy Weapons. Some Fear The Militants May Have Captured Some Sophisticated Weapons, Such As Ground-to-air Missiles Capable Of Shooting Down Airplanes. Many International Commercial Flights Said They Were Continuing To Fly Normally Over Militant-held Areas In Western And Northern Iraq Until Recent Days, When Dubai-based Emirates Publicly Announced It Would Avoid The Regions. Air France Said It Is Currently Avoiding Numerous Routes Over Iraq, Syria And Libya, As Well As Eastern Ukraine And Crimea. Amsterdam-based KLM Said It Stopped Flying Over Iraq Last Week, Adding That It Has Suspend Some Flights To Israel In Recent Days As A Conflict Between Israelis And Hamas In The Gaza Strip Enters Its Fourth Week. U.S. Carrier Delta Air Lines Has No-fly Zones Over Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, North Korea And Ukraine. Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways Said In A Statement That It Maintains “a Set Of Contingencies Relative To Iraq” But Added That It Sees “no Evidence That Either The Capability Or The Intent Exists To Target Aircraft Overflying Iraq, By Either Side Of The Current Conflict.” The Iraqi Government Also Dismissed The Fears, Saying That Iraqi Skies And Airports Are Safe. “The Baghdad Airport Is Highly Secured,” Said Nassir Bandar, Head Of The Iraqi Civil Aviation Authority. “There Is No Threat To Airplanes Passing Over The Iraqi Skies.” However, An Airplane Landing At Baghdad’s Airport Has Been Targeted Before. In November 2003, A Missile Struck A DHL Cargo Plane On Its Approach To Baghdad’s Airport, Forcing It To Make An Emergency Landing With Its Wing Aflame. A U.S. Military Investigation Later Indicated The Plane Was Hit By A Surface-to-air Missile. ___ Associated Press Writers Aya Batrawy And Fay Abuelgasim In Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Elaine Ganley In Paris; David Rising And Kirsten Grieshaber In Berlin; Toby Sterling In Amsterdam; Scott Mayerowitz In New York And Greg Katz In London Contributed To This Report.

Russia, A Close Ally Of Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, Presented The Statement In Late June, Seeking To Clamp Down On Middle-men Who Are Selling The Oil From Islamist-controlled Areas. Moscow's Ambassador Vitaly Churkin Said He Was Pleased With The Stance, Saying It Was A "reminder" From The Top World Body That "this Amounts To A Very Serious Transgression" Of UN Resolutions. Islamic Groups Such As ISIL, Which Rebranded Itself As The Islamic State, And Al-Nusra Have Seized Oilfields And Pipelines To Bankroll Their Offensives. The Council Said Control Of Oil Facilities "could Generate Material Income For Terrorists, Which Would Support Their Recruitment Efforts, Including Of Foreign Terrorist Fighters, And Strengthen Their Operational Capability To Organize And Carry Out Terrorist Attacks." Trade Of Oil With The Islamists Is In Violation Of UN Resolutions And "all States Are Required To Ensure That Their Nationals And Any Persons Within Their Territory Do Not Trade In Oil With These Entities," It Said. The Syrian Observatory Of Human Rights Said Last Week That Islamic State (IS) Fighters In Syria Were Selling Oil And Gas To Iraqi Businessmen. IS Insurgents Took Control Of Large Parts Of Iraq's North And West In A Sweeping Offensive That Began On June 9, Preventing Baghdad From Exporting Oil Via A Pipeline To Turkey And By Road To Jordan.

"UN Agencies Have Supplies Ready To Go To All Of Those Hard To Reach Areas. They Had Those In Place For Some Time," Amanda Pitt, Spokeswoman For The UN's Humanitarian Aid Coordination Arm, Told Reporters. The United Nations Estimates That 10.8 Million People — Or Half The Pre-war Population — Need Aid In Syria, Many In Areas Cut Off By Fighting. It Was "too Early To Say" When The First Aid Convoys Might Be Able To Leave Turkey, Iraq And Jordan, Pitt Said. "If We Are Able To Use All Those Crossings And If Insecurity Is Not A Problem On The Other Side — Which It Could Be — Then We Could Potentially Reach Another 2.9 Million People That We Have Not Been Able To Reach So Far," She Added. "That's Key For Us — Reaching People Who Desperately Need Help." Since The Syrian Conflict Erupted In March 2011, The International Community Has Been Split Over How To Help The Embattled Population. The Issue Has Been Caught Up In Wrangling Over Syrian Sovereignty. The Regime Has Balked At The Idea Of Aid Coming Across Borders In Zones Controlled By Rebels — Notably In The North, Near Turkey — Seeing It As Tantamount To UN Recognition And As A Means To Supply Its Opponents. As A Result, Agencies Have Had To First Bring Aid To Warehouses In Syria, Before Convoys Fan Out Across The Country. The UN Security Council Had Long Been Deadlocked Over Syria, With The West Facing Off Against Damascus's Key International Ally Russia. Under The Terms Of The Cross-border Aid Resolution, Which Is Valid For Six Months And Expected To Be Renewed, Trucks Will Be Subject To UN Controls To Ensure That They Are Carrying Only Humanitarian Supplies. The Resolution Also Calls On The Warring Sides To Allow Unhindered Access And Guarantee Security. Both Sides Have Been Accused Of Using Aid As A Weapon And Of Trying To Starve Out Areas Held By Their Adversaries. Fighting Has Also Made It Too Dangerous For Convoys To Reach Some Areas Regularly, With Some Aid Workers Paying With Their Lives. "Insecurity Is One Of The Biggest Issue That We Face. Syria Is Essentially A War Zone. And We Continue To Face Very Difficult Administrative Procedures With The Government. Funding Is Also An Issue," Said Pitt. Elisabeth Byrs, Spokeswoman For The World Food Programme, Said Her Agency Was Ready To Go. "It Is Estimated That Nearly Half The People In Syria Are Food Insecure And Don't Know Where Their Next Meal Will Come From," Byrs Said.

In A New Report, The UN Agency For Refugees UNHCR Highlighted The Plight Of Some 145,000 Syrian Refugee Women Who Are Fending For Themselves And Their Families In Dire Circumstances Across The Middle East. "Forced To Take Sole Responsibility For Their Families After Their Men Were Killed, Captured Or Otherwise Separated, They Are Caught In A Spiral Of Hardship, Isolation And Anxiety," Said The Report, Unveiled By UNHCR Chief Antonio Guterres At A Amman News Conference. Guterres Said Syrian Refugee Women "are Suffering Enormously" And Appealed For More Funds To Help Them. "We Need To Enhance Our Direct Cash Support To Vulnerable Families And That Is A Very Important Instrument… Unfortunately This Is A Very Expensive Protection And Assistance Instrument," He Said. "We Are Still Lacking $200 Million (147 Million Euros) Until The End Of The Year To Be Able To Extend This Programme Of Cash Assistance To Families In The Way That Covers The Needs Of The Most Vulnerable Ones." The Primary Difficulty Facing Refugees Women Is Lack Of Resources, With Most Struggling To Pay Rent And Buy Food, Resorting To Selling Possessions, Including Wedding Rings, And Sending Children Out To Work. Most Are Unable To Work Because They Are The Sole Caregivers For Their Children, And A Third Of The 135 Women Surveyed By UNHCR In Jordan, Lebanon And Egypt Said They Do Not Have Enough To Eat. - Tough Choices - One Woman Interviewed In Cairo Said She Would Not Eat Until Her Granddaughters Were Full. "I'm Happy To Eat A Toasted Piece Of Bread To Make Sure They Get Enough To Eat," She Said. Many Of Those Interviewed Said They Were Receiving Food Vouchers From The World Food Programme, But Some Said They Were Selling The Vouchers To Pay For Rent Or Other Expenses. Living Without Men Contributed To Many Women Being Harassed, The Report Said. One Woman Living In An Apartment In Lebanon Described "frequent Verbal Harassment" From Local Men. Another Woman Living In A Tent Outside Of Lebanon's Northern City Of Tripoli Said A Man Came Into The Tent And "tried To Persuade Her To Be With Him." She Fought Him Off And Moved To Another Tent, But Was Caught In The Crossfire Of Clashes In Tripoli That Terrified Her Children. An Aid Group Eventually Moved Her Into A House And Paid Three Months Of Her Rent. Lack Of Money Also Forces The Women To Make Tough Choices On Issues Of Education And Healthcare, With Many Unable To Afford To Educate All Their Children Or To Pay For Medications. The Report Urges Host Governments To Keep Borders Open And Limit Entry Restrictions, Noting That One In Five Women Were Separated From Their Husbands Because Of Visa Or Similar Issues. It Calls On Aid Groups To Take Into Account The Particular Challenges Of Lone Female Refugees And Make Sure Women Are Protected, As Well As To Make Support Available For Host Communities. And It Urges Donors And Citizens To Increase Funding To Agencies Supporting Syrian Refugees, Nothing That Syria Is The Largest Forced Displacement Crisis In The World. At Least 2.8 Million Syrians Have Fled The Conflict That Began In Their Country In March 2011, With More Than A Million Taking Refuge In Tiny Neighbouring Lebanon. Others Are In Jordan, Egypt, Turkey And Iraq, Which Have All Struggled With The Influx Of Arrivals. The UN Has Regularly Appealed For More Funding To Help Those Fleeing The Conflict, Which Is Estimated To Have Killed More Than 162,000 People.
