Israel hints it could hit Iran's 'air force' in Syria

Israel hints it could hit Iran's 'air force' in SyriaBy Dan Williams JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel released details on Tuesday about what it described as an Iranian “air force” deployed in neighboring Syria, including civilian planes suspected of transferring arms, a signal that these could be attacked should tensions with Tehran escalate. Iran, along with Damascus and its big-power backer Russia, blamed Israel for an April 9 air strike on a Syrian air base, T-4, that killed seven Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) members. Israeli media ran satellite images and a map of five Syrian air bases allegedly used to field Iranian drones or cargo aircraft, as well as the names of three senior IRGC officers suspected of commanding related projects, such as missile units.

Russia lawmakers draft list of U.S. imports that could be banned

Russia lawmakers draft list of U.S. imports that could be bannedBy Darya Korsunskaya and Christian Lowe MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s lower house of parliament is to consider draft legislation that would give the Kremlin powers to ban or restrict a list of U.S. imports, reacting to new U.S. sanctions on a group of Russian tycoons and officials. Senior lawmakers in the State Duma, which is dominated by Kremlin loyalists, said they had prepared the list ranging from food and alcohol to medicine and consulting services in response to Washington’s move last week. It was not immediately clear if the draft legislation – which would allow the government to impose the measures should the need arise – would become law in its current form, or if it had the backing of the Kremlin.
