Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said he had yet to see anything concrete from U.S. President Donald Trump over his vow to defeat Islamic State (IS) and called U.S. forces in Syria "invaders" because they were there without government permission. Assad, in an interview with Chinese TV station Phoenix, said in theory he still saw scope for cooperation with Trump though practically nothing had happened in this regard. Assad said Trump's campaign pledge to prioritise the defeat of IS had been a promising approach. "We haven't seen anything concrete yet regarding this rhetoric," he noted. More»

U.S. President Donald Trump invited on Friday Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the White House, in a first phone call between the two leaders since Trump took office. "President Trump has extended an official invitation to President Abbas to visit the White House soon to discuss ways to resume the political process, stressing his commitment to a peace process that will lead to a real peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis," said Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rdainah. White House spokesman Sean Spicer in Washington later confirmed Trump had invited Abbas to a meeting at the White House very soon. Palestinians are concerned at the more favourable approach shown by Washington towards Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since Trump came to power. Netanyahu and Trump have spoken on the phone at least twice since the Jan. 20 inauguration, and Netanyahu visited Washington last month. Palestinian officials indicated Abbas would emphasise his concern about Israeli settlement-building on occupied land and the need for a two-state solution to the conflict. "President Abbas stressed the commitment to peace as a strategic choice to establish a Palestinian State alongside the state of Israel," Abu Rdainah said, according to the official Palestinian WAFA news agency. Trump told Abbas that a peace deal must be negotiated directly between Israel and the Palestinians and that the United States would work closely with both sides toward that goal, the White House said in a statement. At a Feb. 15 news conference during Netanyahu's visit, Trump was ambivalent about a two-state solution, the mainstay of U.S. policy in the region for the past two decades. "I'm looking at two-state and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like ... I can live with either one," Trump said, causing consternation across the Arab world and in many European capitals. SETTLEMENTS The White House has since been more cautious on the issue, and there has been less talk of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a promise Trump made during the campaign but a move that would provoke anger across the Muslim world. David Friedman, Trump's nominee for ambassador to Israel, who was approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday, has said he wants to see the embassy move to Jerusalem and expects to work from the city at least some of the time. While one of the first calls to a foreign leader made by Trump's Democratic predecessor Barack Obama was to Abbas, Trump has been cautious in his contacts with the Arab world. He has spoken to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and met Jordan's King Abdullah, who took the initiative and flew to Washington for an impromptu visit. One of the most heated issues between Israel and the Palestinians is Israel's building of settlements in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem, territory the Palestinians want for their own state along with Gaza. During the campaign, Trump said he did not necessarily see settlements as an obstacle to peace. Since his inauguration, Israel has announced plans to build at least 6,000 more settler homes, a substantial increase and an indication that Israel took Trump's softer language as a green light. But during Netanyahu's visit, Trump said he wanted the Israeli prime minister to "hold back on settlements for a little bit," a position that took Netanyahu by surprise. Israeli and U.S. officials are now discussing what the parameters are on settlements. More»

Air strikes killed 14 civilians, including six children, on Thursday in countryside around Raqqa city in northern Syria, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The warplanes were believed to belong to the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State (ISIS), the Britain-based war monitoring group said. The jets pounded a village southeast of Raqqa city, near the Euphrates River and along the road to Deir al-Zor province, the Observatory said. Most of those killed were from the same family, it said.

Lebanon's Cabinet Wednesday appointed a new army chief, General Joseph Aoun, ending a deadlock that twice forced an extension of the term of the military's sitting head. The appointment of the successor to General Jean Kahwaji is the first by Lebanon's cabinet since it was formed after President Michel Aoun's election in October. A ministerial source told AFP the appointment had the consensus of all the political forces, adding that the new chief was well-known and removed from any political conflicts. More»

U.S. and Iraqi officials believe the leader of Islamic State (ISIS) group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has left operational commanders behind with diehard followers to fight the battle of Mosul, and is now hiding out in the desert, focusing mainly on his own survival. It is impossible to confirm the whereabouts of the ISIS caliph, who declared himself the ruler of all Muslims from Mosul's Great Mosque after his forces swept through northern Iraq in 2014. But U.S. and Iraqi intelligence sources say an absence of official communication from the group's leadership and the loss of territory in Mosul suggest he has abandoned the city, by far the largest population centre his group has ever held. He has proved to be an elusive target, rarely using communication that can be monitored, and moving constantly, often multiple times in one 24-hour cycle, the sources said. More»

Britain's foreign minister said his country remains firmly in favor of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Boris Johnson told reporters in the West Bank on Wednesday that his government is committed to that vision, saying: "we must not abandon that prospect." He says there are obstacles to establishing an independent Palestinian state, including Israeli settlement construction. He also says peace must be reached between the parties, and not be imposed from the outside. More»

Israel's parliament gave preliminary approval Wednesday to two controversial measures that would limit calls to prayers from mosques, including one prohibiting the use of loudspeakers at all hours, after shouting matches between lawmakers. The bills-the second of which would ban loudspeakers in urban areas between 11:00 pm and 7:00 am- will eventually have to be reconciled, with three more readings required before they can become law. They were approved after a heated discussion that turned into shouting matches between ruling coalition members and Arab lawmakers, some of whom tore copies of the legislation and were ejected from the chamber.

Iraqi forces worked to clear bombs and flush out any remaining Islamist militants in retaken areas of west Mosul Wednesday to set the stage for an offensive against the Old City. Supported by US-led air strikes, the forces have made steady progress in their battle to seize Iraq's second city from the Islamic State (IS) militants, announcing the recapture of three more areas on Wednesday. Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi vowed he would not hesitate to strike Islamist militants in neighbouring countries as well if they posed a threat, after Iraq carried out air raids in Syria last month.

Russian-backed Syrian government forces on Tuesday retook from the Islamic State (ISIS) militant group a pumping station that supplies water to second city Aleppo, a monitoring group said. "Regime forces took over the area of Al-Khafsa and seized the water-pumping station after the withdrawal of the ISIS," said Rami Abdel Rahman of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The Islamist militants fled in the face of a Syrian government offensive backed by Russian air strikes, he said. More»
