Turkish soldier killed in Syria operation 23.1.2018 General News
A Turkish soldier was killed as the country pressed its offensive against Kurdish militia targets in northern Syria, the army said, confirming the operation's first Turkish fatality on its third day. "One of our heroic soldiers was martyred during clashes" with Kurdish militants from the People's Protection Units (YPG) militia southeast of the Turkish border town of Gulbaba in Kilis on Monday, the Turkish army said in a statement.

US will 'never allow' Iran to have a nuclear weapon: Pence 22.1.2018 General News
US Vice President Mike Pence vowed today in an address to the Israeli parliament that Washington will never allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. "I have a solemn promise to Israel, to all the Middle East and to the world - the United States of America will never allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon," Pence said to applause from Israeli MPs. The 2015 deal that was meant to curb Iran's nuclear capabilities was fiercely opposed by Israel, but backed by then US president Barack Obama. His successor Donald Trump has fiercely criticised the agreement, accusing Tehran of not sticking to it and saying it still allows the Islamic republic to support terrorist organisations across the globe - including Israel's longstanding enemies. Earlier this month Trump again waived nuclear-related sanctions - as required every few months to stay in the agreement - but demanded European partners work with Washington to improve the terms of the deal. "The Iran nuclear deal is a disaster ...
