• Saudi Offer to Put Troops in Syria Not Realistic, Experts Say

    It was a startling announcement that prompted a flurry of urgent headlines and seemed to answer the prayers of the Obama administration and presidential candidates alike: Saudi Arabia said it would be willing to send ground troops into Syria to combat the Islamic State. “That kind of news is very welcome,” said U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter. The Saudi statement, made February 4 by its Defense Ministry spokesman, also seemed tailored to meet the strategy formulations of Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in regard to countering the Islamic militants, who have established a “caliphate” over large swaths of Iraq and Syria.

  • Russian firepower helps Syrian forces edge toward Turkey border

    By Suleiman Al-Khalidi and Humeyra Pamuk BEIRUT/ONCUPINAR, Turkey (Reuters) - The Syrian army advanced toward the Turkish border on Monday in a major offensive backed by Russia and Iran that rebels say now threatens the future of their nearly five-year-old insurrection against President Bashar al-Assad. "They are advancing and we are pulling back because in the face of such heavy aerial bombing we must minimize our losses." The Russian-backed Syrian government advance over recent days amounts to one of the biggest shifts in momentum of the war, helping to torpedo the first peace talks for two years, which collapsed last week before they had begun in earnest. The Syrian military and its allies were almost five km (3 miles) from the rebel-held town of Tal Rafaat, which has brought them to around 25 km (16 miles) from the Turkish border, the rebels, residents and a conflict monitor said.

  • Egypt flooded Gaza tunnels at Israel's request: minister

    An Israeli minister said Egypt flooded tunnels on its border with the besieged Gaza Strip at the Jewish state's request, before a spokeswoman on Sunday said the remarks were misinterpreted. Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, a member of the ruling Likud party, said on Saturday that Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi "did flood a large part of the tunnels between Gaza and Sinai", calling it a "good solution". The Palestinian coastal enclave's southern border with Egypt's Sinai Peninsula is significantly shorter than its eastern border with Israel.

  • Air strikes help force ISIS to halve fighters' pay: Glaser

    U.S.-led air strikes have had a substantial impact on the money Islamic State (IS) makes from oil, and have helped force the militant group to cut its fighters' pay by up to 50 percent, a senior U.S official said on Monday. Daniel Glaser, assistant secretary for terrorist financing at the U.S. Treasury Department, said the strikes had hit the group's ability to extract, refine and transport oil from territory it controlled in Iraq and Syria. "When you look at difficulties that we know that they are having with respect to the transport, with respect to the extraction, I think it's fair to say they are no longer able to make money the way they used to be able to," Glaser told a London conference.
