More than 50,000 flee twin offensives in Syria as crisis deepens

More than 50,000 flee twin offensives in Syria as crisis deepensMore than 50,000 people have fled twin offensives in Syria in recent days, as escalating violence is displacing large numbers of civilians across the country. Around 30,000 left the northern majority Kurdish city of Afrin as Turkish and allied forces stepped up a siege. In the Damascus suburb of Eastern Ghouta, some 20,000 have left rebel areas targeted by Syrian government forces. They continued streaming out in their thousands on Friday as the enclave was pummelled relentlessly. Aid agencies said they were expecting at least double that number to leave in the coming days and weeks. Pictures from the Kafr Baytna neighbourhood showed the still-smouldering bodies of civilians in the street after the area was hit by what residents said was napalm-like incendiary weapons dropped from a Russian jet. Some 46 people were killed in the attack. Moscow and Damascus accuse the rebels of forcing people to stay in harm's way to use them as human shields. The rebels deny this and say the aim of the government assault is to depopulate opposition areas as they have done in Aleppo and Homs. Further north in Syria, the Kurdish People’s Protection Unit (YPG) militia, defending Afrin, said it was battling the Turkish forces and their Syrian militia allies who tried to storm the town from the north. On Friday alone, Turkish artillery fire killed 18 civilians in the city centre, where remaining residents were stocking up on food in preparation for a fully fledged siege.

They just bombed the civilian hospital,” Mr Smith, from London, said in a text message. “We’ve treated men, women and children, mostly with air strike and artillery injuries." Turkey's military dropped flyers in Arabic and Kurdish on the northern Syrian town of Afrin yesterday morning, asking residents to stay away from "terrorist positions" and urging YPG militiamen to surrender.

They urged Kurdish fighters to "trust the hand we extend to you," saying: "Come surrender! A calm and peaceful future awaits you in Afrin." The seven-year war has displaced more than half of Syria’s 21 million population – six million inside Syria and another six million are seeking refuge outside the country. The two offensives, one backed by Russia and the other led by Turkey, have shown how Syrian factions and their foreign allies are aggressively reshaping the map of control of the country as the UN looks on helplessly. Turkey began its operation, codenamed Olive Branch, in January with the aim of clearing the YPG, which it sees as terrorists, from the border.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s president, has previously claimed that Afrin was part of the Ottoman Empire and that the land should be returned to Arabs. The foreign ministers of Turkey, Iran and Russia convened a meeting in the Kazakh capital Astana yesterday to discuss the situation in Syria. The three states last year agreed to contain the conflict on several fronts with "de-escalation zones", while simultaneously pursuing own military objectives in Syria.

Trump campaign paid lawyer now representing son $50,000 before emails released 

Trump campaign paid lawyer now representing son $  50,000 before emails released Donald Trump's presidential re-election campaign made a $ 50,000 payment in June to the law office now representing Donald Trump Jr. more than a week before revelations that the president's son had met with a Russian lawyer during the campaign. The payment to the Law Offices of Alan S. Futerfas, dated June 27, was disclosed in a filing with the Federal Election Commission on Saturday. It was described as covering "legal consulting" fees. Separately, the campaign also paid Jones Day, the law firm that represented Trump's campaign during the election. Spokesmen for Trump's re-election campaign and Futerfas could not be immediately reached for comment. Donald Trump and Russian espionage Futerfas was announced as Trump Jr.'s lawyer on Monday after a New York Times report detailed meetings between the president's eldest son and a Russian lawyer. A federal special counsel and several congressional panels are investigating allegations by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and potential connections between Russian officials and the Trump campaign. Moscow has denied any interference and the president and Trump Jr. have denied any collusion. Donald Trump Jnr emails related content The campaign also paid $ 89,561 to The Trump Corporation for "legal consulting." The company, owned by the president, is not a law firm. They payment was dated June 30th. In the second quarter of 2017, Trump's re-election campaign raised about $ 8 million and spent $ 4.4 million. Trump filed for re-election the day after taking office – allowing his campaign to continue to raise and spend money while he is in office. The Federal Election Commission has previously ruled that candidates and federal office holders may spend campaign funds on legal fees that are part of legal actions that would not have been necessary if they were not a candidate. Trump has also hired outside counsel being led Marc Kasowitz. His campaign finance disclosure did not list any payments to Kasowitz.
