Threat or chance? Israel eyes Lebanon protests closely

Threat or chance? Israel eyes Lebanon protests closelyLooking down on Lebanon from the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, soldiers wonder whether the political turmoil in the neighbouring country will weaken arch-enemy Hezbollah or make it more dangerous. “There, Hezbollah is very, very strong,” said Samuel Boujenah of the Israeli military, gazing at a valley where calm was recently shattered by clashes with the Iran-backed Shiite group.

Report: Dubai plane that crashed followed others too closely

Report: Dubai plane that crashed followed others too closelyA plane involved in a fatal crash that killed four people working on improvements at Dubai International Airport had followed other larger aircraft landing there too closely as air traffic controllers offered inconsistent warnings about the hazard, a preliminary investigative report released Sunday found. The May 16 crash of the Diamond DA62 saw the aircraft roll upside-down in air and smash into a park near the airport at high speed, killing the three Britons and one South African on board, according to the report by the United Arab Emirates’ General Civil Aviation Authority. The twin propeller-engine light aircraft first lost control in the wake of a Thai Airways Airbus A350 landing at Dubai’s airport, the world’s busiest for international travel.

UK PM May would have to look closely at customs union if parliament votes for it: minister

UK PM May would have to look closely at customs union if parliament votes for it: ministerBritish Prime Minister Theresa May would have to look closely at pursuing a customs union with the European Union if parliament votes for it, justice minister David Gauke said on Sunday. In a first round, the idea of seeking a customs union with the European Union was one of the most popular options, although it fell just short of a majority. Asked by BBC TV whether May would have to go back to the EU and negotiate for a customs union if parliament voted for it, Gauke said: “I think she would need to look very closely at that.” “If parliament is voting overwhelmingly against leaving the European Union without a deal but is voting in favor of a softer Brexit, then I don’t think it is sustainable to say we will ignore parliament’s position and leave without a deal.” Gauke also said May’s three-times defeated deal was not dead, and was still one of the options open to lawmakers.

Trump, Putin shake hands ahead of closely watched G20 meeting

Trump, Putin shake hands ahead of closely watched G20 meetingBy Roberta Rampton and Jeff Mason HAMBURG (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, a veteran businessman and a former spy, shook hands on Friday ahead of the most highly anticipated face-to-face meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit. Trump has said he wants to find ways to work with Putin, a goal made more difficult by sharp differences over Russia’s actions in Syria and Ukraine, and allegations Moscow meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In a video of the encounter, Trump was later shown patting Putin on the back.

On Russia, Trump administration hews closely to Obama playbookBefore moving to the White House, Donald Trump expressed his admiration for Russian leader Vladimir Putin and predicted that “President Trump would be so much better for US-Russia relations”. The “bromance” between Putin and Trump was abruptly adjourned amidst a political storm that continues to rage in Washington over alleged collusion between Trump’s inner circle and the Kremlin during the 2016 election campaign. Ongoing Russian operations in Ukraine have also forced Trump, who famously touted Putin as being a “stronger leader” than Obama, to moderate his stance.
