    snip Last week, at the urging of Russia, the Americans finally called off aerial surveillance. “The deal has been completed,” said a “commander in the [pro-Assad] military alliance” — probably a Hezbollah source — to Reuters. The commanders said that, along the new route, ISIS freed a Hezbollah prisoner. Earlier this week, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah — highlighting the role of his forces in propping up the Assad regime and downplaying that of the regime’s military — declared “victory” in the 79-month Syrian conflict.

    The US-led coalition says it will keep blocking a convoy of evacuated Islamic State militants in Syria from reaching IS-held territory on the Iraq border. The hundreds of fighters recently surrendered an enclave on Syria's border with Lebanon. They agreed with Hezbollah and the Syrian government that they would leave with their families and head eastwards. But the coalition says it and Iraq were not part of the deal and on Tuesday bombed the road ahead of the convoy. The buses are now stranded in an area of desert under Syrian government control between the towns of Humayma and al-Sukhnah....

She also said it wasn’t immediately clear if those involved were SEALs or support staff. .... The paper reported Thursday that a Kentucky-based anti-Trump group was one of the first to post video of the incident on its website, calling it “a fascist tactic” that “is not acceptable.

Several Arab bloggers circulated the article last week. Today, these blogs are the only evidence that the article ever existed. Soon after it was published, Sudanese authorities shut down the...

    U.S. military officials are concerned that Iran's support for Houthi rebels in Yemen could spark a confrontation with Saudi Arabia and plunge the region into sectarian war.

Officials fear the move could lead to a showdown with the U.S. or other members of a Saudi-led coalition, which is enforcing a naval blockade of Yemen and is conducting its fourth week of airstrikes against the Houthis.
