"As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," said Dr. Azzacove. "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of hell!"Dr. Azzacove continued, ". . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.""We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment.""But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!"The following is a recording that claims to be the actual sounds of hell from the above article.

Last year PRA Group acquired Aktiv Kapital AS, a Norwegian-based debt collector with operations in Europe and Canada, for $880 million.Litigation is actually positive for the future-PRA Group was forced to pay $19 million in consumer refunds and an $8 million penalty and to stop collecting on $3 million in debts by Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) to settle allegations arising from its practices in the last few years. Again, this is just a cost of doing business, similar to insurance companies having to pay claims. The company was ordered to stop reselling debts. PRA Group is prohibited from reselling the debts it buys to other debt collectors.

Ministers back bill slashing PA funding over terror payouts-Legislation would allow Defense Ministry to deduct sum of Ramallah's welfare payments to Palestinian prisoners and their families from tax revenues transferred to PA-By Marissa Newman and Dov Lieber-TOI-FEB 19,18

The Ministerial Committee for Legislation on Sunday approved a bill that would slash funds to the Palestinian Authority over salaries paid out by Ramallah to convicted terrorists and their families.If passed by the Knesset, the legislation would deduct welfare payments paid out by the Palestinian Authority to Palestinian prisoners and their relatives from the tax revenues Israel transfers annually to the PA.Under an economic agreement signed in 1994, Israel transfers to the PA tens of millions of dollars each year in customs duties levied on goods destined for Palestinian markets that transit through Israeli ports.The bill will have to pass three readings in the Knesset plenum before it becomes law. The ministerial panel’s backing on Sunday lends it coalition support, making it all but guaranteed to advance.The legislation is a softened version of a bill privately proposed by Yesh Atid MK Elazar Stern that would have seen the funds automatically deducted from the PA. Stern, on Sunday, hailed the ministers’ approval of the proposal and called on the government to swiftly pass it into law.The Defense Ministry’s version of the bill will allow the government to either deduct the funds, which would be irreversible, or “freeze” the payments, leaving the security cabinet with the final say.After the ministers cleared the bill, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman hailed the move and said the withheld tax revenues would go toward compensating Israeli terror victims who cannot sue their attackers.“Soon, this theater of the absurd will come to an end, and the salaries of the terrorists that we will withhold from [Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud] Abbas will be used to prevent terrorism and compensate victims,” he said.Critics of the bill have warned it could bankrupt the PA, leading to its collapse.Last week, Avi Dichter, a Likud MK and former Shin Bet security agency chief, railed against the government proposal, saying the amended version would be ineffective, as the final decision will always be left to the security cabinet, based on diplomatic or national security considerations.The Palestine Liberation Organization gives monthly payments to all Palestinian prisoners jailed in Israel, no matter the reason for their incarceration, and also to families of so-called “martyrs” — a term used by the PLO to refer to anyone killed by an Israeli, whether the person was killed attacking Israelis or not.A recent report published by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the Israeli Defense Ministry agency responsible for administering civilian affairs in the West Bank and the crossings with Gaza, said that around one-third of the Palestinian prisoners are “directly responsible for the murder of Israelis.”According to the Defense Ministry, the Palestinian Authority in 2017 paid NIS 687 million ($198 million) to the so-called “martyrs’ families fund” and NIS 550 million ($160 million) to the Palestinian Prisoners’ Club — some 7 percent of its overall budget.Palestinian prisoners serving 20-30 year sentences for carrying out terror attacks are eligible for a lifetime NIS 10,000 ($1,900) monthly stipend, the Defense Ministry said, citing PA figures. Those prisoners who receive a 3-5 year sentence get a monthly wage of NIS 2,000 ($580). Palestinian prisoners who are married, have children, live in Jerusalem, or hold Israeli citizenship receive additional payments.US President Donald Trump in January threatened aid cuts to the PA, asking why Washington should make “any of these massive future payments” when the Palestinians were “no longer willing to talk peace.” The United States recently froze some $100 million in aid to the UN agency that deals with Palestinian refugees, calling for reforms to the international body.US lawmakers have also been advancing the Taylor Force Act — named for a US national killed in a Tel Aviv stabbing terror attack — which would cut US funding to the PA unless it discontinued its practice of paying monthly stipends to the families of terrorists who kill Israelis.The PA has refused to cease the payments to Palestinian prisoners.In June, Abbas, in a speech read by his foreign affairs adviser Nabil Shaath, argued that “payments to support the families are a social responsibility to look after innocent people affected by the incarceration or killing of their loved ones.“It’s quite frankly racist rhetoric to call all our political prisoners terrorists. They are, in effect, the victims of the occupation, not the creators of the occupation,” Abbas said.

PM credits Israeli counter-strikes for years of quiet in Gaza-After an IED attack on IDF troops, Netanyahu says relative calm maintained thus far by 'putting pressure on Hamas'-By Judah Ari Gross-TOI-FEB 19,18

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday credited Israel’s policy of targeting Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip in response to any aggression coming the territory with preventing additional attacks.He was speaking a day after an improvised explosive device injured four IDF soldiers and a rocket fired from the Strip hit an Israeli house in the nearby Sha’ar Hanegev region.“If we weren’t putting pressure on Hamas the way we do, we’d have what happened [yesterday] every day,” Netanyahu told reporters following a speech at the Munich Security Conference earlier in the day.The prime minister would not confirm comments made by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, to the effect that the Popular Resistance Committees terrorist group was responsible for the IED attack.“It doesn’t matter who did it. It matters who didn’t stop it,” Netanyahu said, referring to Gaza’s Hamas rulers.Since the 2014 Gaza war, Hamas has prevented other terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip from carrying out attacks, leading to one of the quietest periods between Israel and the coastal enclave since the 1967 Six Day War, according to Israeli statistics on terror attacks.“This isn’t about [Hamas] loving us, but about loving itself,” Netanyahu said.Saturday’s attack represented the most significant strike from an armed group in the territory since the 2014 war.In response to the initial IED attack and the rocket launch, Israel conducted a series of airstrikes in the Strip, targeting 18 sites connected to terrorist activities, according to the Israeli army.The military said that those included an offensive tunnel dug toward Israeli territory from the Zeitun neighborhood of Gaza City.In a separate incident on Saturday night, an IDF tank fired at a group of Palestinians who had approached the security fence “in a suspicious manner.” The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry reported that two of the Palestinians were killed and two more were seriously injured.Despite the extensive strikes, the prime minister maintained that Israel “definitely doesn’t have an interest in escalating the situation.”As of Sunday afternoon, two of the soldiers injured in the IED blast remained in serious condition, while the other three were said to be in moderate condition, according to Beersheba’s Soroka Medical Center, where the servicemen were initially taken.One of the soldiers, whose father is a doctor at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, was transferred there at the request of his family. His condition continues to be serious, the Jerusalem hospital said, and he is being treated in the hospital’s trauma center.Doctors said the condition of all four soldiers has stabilized and there is no immediate danger to their lives.

Netanyahu: Iran speech meant to sway US to renew sanctions-PM reiterates criticism of 2015 nuclear deal; diplomatic official says the Islamic Republic 'not immune' from Israeli attack-By Judah Ari Gross-TOI-FEB 19,18

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dramatic speech Sunday about Iranian aggression in the Middle East seemed intended, above all, for the ears of US President Donald Trump, who in approximately two months will decide whether to renew sanctions against the Islamic Republic.“[The speech] was meant to address the current aggressiveness of Iran on the ground and to influence what will happen in Washington in a few months,” he told reporters after the address at the Munich Security Conference, in which he displayed the wing flap of an Iranian drone that was recently shot down in Israeli airspace.Netanyahu added that he will speak with Trump about the issue at the beginning of next month, when he will be in Washington as part of the annual AIPAC Policy Conference.His central argument is that if the US were to restore some sanctions against Iran, countries throughout the world would be forced to choose between access to the Iranian economy, with its GDP of approximately $500 billion, and the American economy — with its GDP of nearly $20 trillion.The prime minister has been a constant critic of the 2015 Iran deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, in part over its “sunset clause,” which eventually removes restrictions against nuclear development, as well as over the limitations it places on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s ability to inspect Iranian military sites.Netanyahu and other Israeli officials have maintained that these issues are serious flaws in the agreement. They also protest the fact that Iran has been able to develop ballistic missiles, with which it could launch a future nuclear weapon, despite a UN resolution calling for it to stop.The prime minister said those problems need to be addressed, though he stressed that this “did not necessarily mean altering the JCPOA, but changing the situation,” a reference to his call on world powers to contain Iranian aggression beyond the confines of the deal.A senior diplomatic official acknowledged that not everyone in attendance at the conference — notably including two of its main architects, former US secretary of state John Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif — were likely to appreciate his harsh words.(Kerry, for his part, later called Netanyahu’s comments on the Iran deal “fundamentally false.”)-Netanyahu said the rest of the world should consider how Iran will act if it acquires an atomic arsenal, in light of its current destabilizing actions in the region.“This is what they do today, when they don’t have nuclear weapons,” he said, referring to Tehran’s involvement in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.The decision to bring a piece of the Iranian drone as tangible “proof” of Iranian aggression came from the prime minister’s communications adviser David Keyes, who stashed the drone piece under the podium before the speech.Zarif responded to Netanyahu’s prop by calling it a “cartoonish circus” that did “not warrant a response.”Netanyahu, for his part, called Zarif’s dismissal a public relations win. “The fact that [Zarif] had to respond to it was the whole point,” he told reporters.Netanyahu kept his focus on the Iranians at the conference, and away from the burgeoning corruption investigations surrounding his affairs back in Israel. He refused to answer journalists’ repeated questions over news of the arrest of former senior officials from his office and from the Bezeq communications company in the context of one investigation.-Striking Iran-In his speech, Netanyahu issued a dramatic, explicit threat to act against Iran itself, and not limit Israeli responses to Tehran’s proxies in Syria, Lebanon, the Gaza Strip and Yemen.The prime minister told the conference that Israel “will not allow Iran’s regime to put a noose of terror around our neck. We will act without hesitation to defend ourselves. And we will act if necessary not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself.”Speaking to reporters after the speech, a senior diplomatic official would not comment on whether that meant targeting sites inside Iran or — as happened last week following the Iranian drone’s incursion into Israeli airspace — striking Iranian targets inside Syria.The Iranian drone, which entered northern Israel from Syria near the Jordan border last Saturday, was shot down by an Israeli attack helicopter. In response to the drone incursion, Israeli jets attacked the mobile command center from which it was operated, the army said at the time.During the reprisal raid, one of the eight Israeli F-16 fighter jets that took part in the operation was apparently hit by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile and crashed. The Israeli Air Force then conducted a second round of airstrikes, destroying between a third and half of Syria’s air defenses, according to IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.A senior diplomatic official said Sunday that Israel would have no problem justifying an attack against Iranian targets if it decided to do so.“Iran attacks Israel. That’s clear. From Lebanon, from Gaza, from Syria. This is coming from Iran. Period,” the official told reporters after the speech, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Iran has no immunity.”

Iranian FM derides Netanyahu speech as ‘cartoonish circus’-Mohammad Javad Zarif takes stage in Munich after PM brandishes part of downed drone, says stunt 'doesn't deserve the dignity of a response'-By Agencies and TOI staff-FEB 19,18

Iran’s foreign minister on Sunday derided Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for staging a “cartoonish circus” at the Munich Security Conference, after the Israeli leader in his address to the summit brandished a fragment of an Iranian drone shot down by Israel a week ago.“You were the audience for a cartoonish circus just this morning which does not even deserve the dignity of a response,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said, as he took the stage shortly after Netanyahu’s fiery speech.Zarif, in his speech, repeatedly called Netanyahu “obsessive” in his focus on the Iranian regime as a threat to Israel’s security, and branded his assertion that Tehran would “do nothing” if the US pulled out of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal as “delusional.”“I can assure that if Iran’s interests are not secured, Iran will respond, will respond seriously and I believe it would be a response that means people would be sorry for taking the erroneous action they did,” said Zarif of the nuclear deal, adding that “we will not be the first ones to violate” the agreement.Iran’s top diplomat also alleged that the recent escalation of tensions on Israel’s borders with Syria and Gaza were an attempt to divert public attention from Netanyahu’s woes at home, namely the corruption probes against him and the police recommendations that the prime minister be indicted for bribery, fraud and breach of trust.He denounced what he said were Israel’s “almost daily illegal incursions into Syrian airspace,” and said Israel was trying “to create these cartoonish images to blame others for its own strategic blunders, or maybe to evade the domestic crisis they’re facing.”“What has happened in the past several days is the so-called invincibility [of Israel] has crumbled,” said Zarif, referring to the downing of an Israeli F-16 over northern Israel last Saturday, according to Reuters.Netanyahu had singled out Zarif in his speech, as he lifted up the wreckage of the UAV.“Mr. Zarif, do you recognize this? You should, it’s yours. You can take back with you a message to the tyrants of Tehran — do not test Israel’s resolve!” proclaimed Netanyahu earlier to the audience, which included Zarif.The Iranian drone, which entered northern Israel from Syria near the Jordan border last Saturday, was shot down by an Israeli attack helicopter. In response to the drone incursion, Israeli jets attacked the mobile command center from which it was operated, the army said last week.During the reprisal raid, one of the eight Israeli F-16 fighter jets that took part in the operation was apparently hit by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile and crashed. The Israeli Air Force then conducted a second round of airstrikes, destroying between a third and half of Syria’s air defenses, according to IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.The flareup on the northern border marked the first direct confrontation between the Israeli air force and the Iranian regime on Israeli territory. Israel has warned of growing Iranian entrenchment in neighboring Syria and has said it will not abide an Iranian military presence on its borders.“Through its proxies — Shiite militias in Iraq, the Houthis in Yemen, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza — Iran is devouring huge swaths of the Middle East,” said Netanyahu.“Israel will not allow Iran’s regime to put a noose of terror around our neck,” he added. “We will act without hesitation to defend ourselves. And we will act if necessary not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself.”In his remarks on Sunday, the prime minister also railed against the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, lambasted the Iranian regime, and branded Zarif the “smooth-talking mouthpiece of Iran.”“I’ll say this, he lies eloquently,” Netanyahu said. “Zarif said it was wrong to say Iran is radical. If that’s true, why do they hang gays from cranes in city squares?”Former US Secretary of State John Kerry, who was also in the audience, criticized Netanyahu’s speech later on Sunday, saying he was “fundamentally incorrect” on the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.US President Donald Trump is deeply skeptical about the nuclear deal. He extended sanctions waivers in January but said he would not do so again when they come up for renewal in May unless his concerns are addressed.Kerry, one of the leading negotiators on the deal, told the conference that “this is untenable. It is not good diplomacy.” He added that it is “absolutely critical” to make sure that the deal survives.“I believe it is absolutely critical for Europe, for the world, to make sure we hold on to this agreement,” said Kerry. “Because to go backward — we know what the world looks like without the Iran nuclear agreement.

Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz met Sunday with a senior United States official seeking to defuse an escalating oil and gas dispute with Lebanon, his office said.A statement from his spokesman said Steinitz held talks with Acting Assistant Secretary of State David Satterfield about conflicting claims to energy reserves off the coasts of Lebanon and Israel.The leader of Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah terror group said on Friday that Lebanon was strong enough to withstand US and Israeli pressure and to put Israeli gas rigs out of action.Last week Lebanon signed its first contract to drill for oil and gas in a pair of offshore zones, including one that its southern neighbor Israel says belongs to it.Lebanese officials have said the whole zone belongs to Beirut while Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has insisted it is solidly in Israeli territory.Sunday’s Israeli statement quoted Steinitz as telling Satterfield that “a diplomatic solution is preferable for both sides.”It added that the two agreed to meet again during the coming week.Satterfield also held talks on the issue with top officials in Lebanon.Meanwhile work began on February 7 in Germany on four advanced corvettes for the Israeli navy “that will protect gas rigs and economic enterprises in Israeli waters,” the Israeli military said.It said that the “Saar 6” warships, to enter service between 2020 and 2022, would be equipped with helipads and advanced missiles.“Protecting strategic economic assets in Israeli waters is a priority for the state of Israel,” the Israeli navy’s website announced last week.In November, Israel installed a battery of its Iron Dome anti-missile system on a warship for the first time, calling it a valuable asset in protecting its offshore natural gas fields.Israel has major gas fields off its northern coast and is building valuable infrastructure to get the fuel out of the ground and onto land, all within range of Hezbollah rockets.Tamar, which began production in 2013, has estimated reserves of up to 238 billion cubic meters (8.4 trillion cubic feet).Leviathan, discovered in 2010 and set to begin production in 2019, is estimated to hold 18.9 trillion cubic feet (535 billion cubic meters) of natural gas, along with 34.1 million barrels of condensate.

Hamas may wish to emulate Hezbollah, but Gaza is no Lebanon-Palestinian terror group acknowledges its weak position by avoiding escalation of violence over IDF airstrikes, trying to earn points by saying it 'banished' IAF jets-By Avi Issacharoff-TOI-FEB 19,18

A few minutes after Israeli warplanes struck a series of targets, mostly belonging to Hamas, in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, the terrorist group’s military wing published a statement saying its air defense teams had banished the “cowardly enemy’s” planes, implying there had been anti-aircraft fire toward them.It wouldn’t be the first — or last — time anti-aircraft fire has been directed at Israeli fighter jets in Gaza. The Israeli air force has for years operated under the understanding that Hamas has relatively simple shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles.It is also not the first time Hamas has boasted of anti-aircraft abilities it probably doesn’t possess.But this time around, the remarks have added significance in light of the downing of an Israeli F-16 jet a week ago by the Syrian army in the north.In other words, Hamas is striving to be — or  to be perceived as — militarily comparable to the Syrian army, or Hezbollah at the least.Quite apart from the sometimes pathetic attempts by Hamas to liken itself to Hezbollah, which has become one of the world’s most well-armed armies, the Gaza-ruling Palestinian Sunni group that threatens Israel from the south and the Lebanese-Iranian Shiite group that threatens Israel from the north have become remarkably close over the past few months.Things have changed since the overt conflict in 2011 between the Hamas leadership then in Damascus headed by Khaled Mashaal and the “axis of evil” headed by Iran, despite the natural enmity between the two organizations due to their contrasting religious affiliation.Hamas’s leaders abroad, such as its deputy political chief Saleh al-Arouri and foreign relations chief Osama Hamdan, have been staying in Lebanon under Hezbollah’s protection.Arouri lives in Dahieh, the Hezbollah-ruled Shiite quarter in Beirut. Hamdan is active throughout the Arab world but mainly in Lebanon. He has been posting near-daily photos of his meetings in and out of Lebanon, including with Hezbollah members and associates. Several months ago, Hamdan’s brother was injured in a mysterious explosion in southern Lebanon, in what was alleged to be an assassination attempt by the Israeli Mossad spy agency.This warming of ties re-raises the possibility of cooperation between Hamas and Hezbollah in the event of a war with Israel, paving the way for a multi-front conflict.Declarations along these lines have recently been voiced by several Palestinian figures, not only from Hamas but also from the Islamic Jihad, in the form of noncommittal statements suggesting that in the event of a war between Hezbollah and Israel in the north, the Palestinians in Gaza would join in.Such a scenario obviously cannot be taken lightly, and indeed Israel’s security establishment is troubled by it. But still, Gaza  isn’t Lebanon and Hamas is no Hezbollah.The military damage caused to Hamas and Gaza in that event would be much more severe than the damage dealt to Hezbollah and Lebanon. Hamas’s military capabilities are far weaker than Hezbollah’s, and more importantly, Gaza’s economy doesn’t have the tools to deal with another war resembling that of the summer of 2014. Hamas chiefs in Gaza know this too; hence, the likelihood of a multi-fronted war against Israel remains low.On Saturday we witnessed a demonstration of Hamas’s understanding of the weakness of its position. A bomb planted ahead of time by Palestinian “protesters” near the border fence, under a Palestinian flag, wounded four IDF soldiers.The attack was probably committed by those groups described as “rogue” in the Strip, meaning not Hamas or the Islamic Jihad. Still, since it was committed during Hamas-organized demonstrations at the border, the terror group is also partly to blame for the incident. Such a scenario wouldn’t have been possible in Lebanon, where no group could carry out an attack against IDF soldiers without the knowledge of Hezbollah.The Israeli reaction to the attack was swift, with several Hamas sites being targeted throughout the Strip. Hamas, having understood its weakness and the danger of escalating tensions with Israel, opted for restraint — restraint cloaked by a grandiose statement of its anti-aircraft “banishing” the Israeli jets.

Lebanon says it can fend off Israeli attacks-After Netanyahu's fiery speech on Iran, Defense Minister Sarraf says Beirut 'will not accept any aggression'-By TOI staff-FEB 19,18

Lebanese Defense Minister Yaacoub Sarraf said Sunday that his country was prepared to defend itself if Israel launched strikes on its territory.The comments came after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel had shot down an Iranian drone in its airspace, and would “act if necessary” against Iran and its proxies, including the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah.Sarraf told participants at the Munich Security Conference that he had lived with “an Israeli drone above my head for the past 15 years” but that his country has “no belligerent intent” against anyone.But, Sarraf said, “we will defend ourselves” and “we are for peace, yet we will not stand for any threat and we will not accept any aggression.”During his own speech at the Munich conference, Netanyahu slammed the Iran nuclear deal, saying it has emboldened the regime in Tehran to become increasingly aggressive in the region.Brandishing a fragment of an Iranian drone downed over northern Israel a week ago, Netanyahu warned the Iranian foreign minister, who was in the audience, to “not test Israel’s resolve.”He told world leaders, defense officials and diplomats that the 2015 nuclear agreement has “unleashed a dangerous Iranian tiger in our region and beyond.”“Through its proxies — Shiite militias in Iraq, the Houthis in Yemen, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza — Iran is devouring huge swaths of the Middle East,” the prime minister said.Israel said Iran piloted the drone into its territory last week from a base it has established in Syria.The Iranian drone, which entered northern Israel near the Jordan border, was shot down by an attack helicopter. In response, Israeli jets attacked the mobile command center from which it was operated, the army said.During the reprisal raid, one of the eight Israeli F-16 fighter jets that took part in the operation was apparently hit by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile and crashed. The IAF then conducted a second round of airstrikes, destroying between a third and half of Syria’s air defenses, according to IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.The hostilities marked the first direct clash in Syria between Israel and Iran, after repeated warnings by Israeli leaders that Iran is working to establish a new front on the northern border.AP contributed to this report.

Waving piece of downed drone, PM threatens direct military action against Iran-'Do you recognize this, Mr. Zarif?' PM asks security confab attended by Iran FM, warns Tehran to 'not test Israel's resolve'-By Judah Ari Gross and Michael Bachner-TOI-FEB 19,18

Brandishing a fragment of an Iranian drone downed over northern Israel a week ago, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday warned that Israel could strike the Islamic Republic directly and cautioned Tehran not to “test Israel’s resolve.”“Mr. Zarif, do you recognize this? You should, it’s yours. You can take back with you a message to the tyrants of Tehran — do not test Israel’s resolve!” proclaimed Netanyahu at the Munich Security Conference, which was also attended by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.The Iranian drone, which entered northern Israel from Syria near the Jordan border last Saturday, was shot down by an Israeli attack helicopter. In response to the drone incursion, Israeli jets attacked the mobile command center from which it was operated, the army said last week.During the reprisal raid, one of the eight Israeli F-16 fighter jets that took part in the operation was apparently hit by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile and crashed. The Israeli Air Force then conducted a second round of airstrikes, destroying between a third and half of Syria’s air defenses, according to IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.The flareup on the northern border marked the first direct confrontation between the Israeli air force and the Iranian regime on Israeli territory. Israel has warned of growing Iranian entrenchment in neighboring Syria and has said it will not abide an Iranian military presence on its borders.“Through its proxies — Shiite militias in Iraq, the Houthis in Yemen, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza — Iran is devouring huge swaths of the Middle East,” said Netanyahu.“Israel will not allow Iran’s regime to put a noose of terror around our neck,” he added. “We will act without hesitation to defend ourselves. And we will act if necessary not just against Iran’s proxies that are attacking us, but against Iran itself.”In his remarks on Sunday, the prime minister also railed against the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, lambasted the Iranian regime, and branded Zarif the “smooth-talking mouthpiece of Iran.”“I’ll say this, he lies eloquently,” Netanyahu said. “Zarif said it was wrong to say Iran is radical. If that’s true, why do they hang gays from cranes in city squares?”Displaying a map of the Middle East, Netanyahu noted that while the Islamic State terrorist group is in retreat, Iran has been steadily making gains. Israeli military intelligence has helped prevent dozens of terror attacks in dozens of countries by Islamic State, said Netanyahu.Iran is trying to take over large swaths of the Middle East, including setting up naval bases in the Mediterranean, Netanyahu charged.“Can you imagine Iranian submarines next to the US Sixth Fleet? Next to the port of Haifa?” he asked.The prime minister called for scrapping the 2015 nuclear deal between world powers and Tehran, saying, “Let’s not repeat the mistakes of the past. Appeasement never works.”He likened modern Iran to Nazi Germany on the eve of World War II, saying that agreements between both regimes and world powers had emboldened them.“Concessions to Hitler only emboldened the Nazis. Well-intentioned leaders only made war more difficult and costly,” he said.“Iran is not Nazi Germany. One championed a master race, the other champions a master faith,” said Netanyahu. “Iran looks to destroy Israel and is developing ballistic missiles that can also reach Europe and the US. Once nuclear-armed, Iran will be unchecked.”The Iran deal has “not made them more moderate internally, it has not made them more moderate externally. It released an Iranian tiger in our region. We must speak clearly; we must act boldly. We can stop this dangerous regime,” said Netanyahu.“I don’t care about the agreement, fixing it or nixing it. I care about preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon,” Netanyahu said, calling for “the toughest, crippling sanctions” against Iran’s development of ballistic missiles.The prime minister also hinted at a diplomatic row with Poland over a law outlawing blaming the Polish state or nation for crimes of the Holocaust, though he did not address it directly.Addressing the Munich Security Conference on Saturday, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki was rejecting criticism of a new law that criminalizes mentions of Polish state complicity in the Holocaust, when he was asked by an Israeli journalist if sharing his family’s history of persecution in Poland would be outlawed under the new legislation.“Of course it’s not going to be punishable, [it’s] not going to be seen as criminal to say that there were Polish perpetrators, as there were Jewish perpetrators, as there were Russian perpetrators, as there were Ukrainian; not only German perpetrators,” Morawiecki told Yedioth Ahronoth’s Ronen Bergman. In his initial response on Saturday night, Netanyahu responded that “the Polish prime minister’s remarks here in Munich are outrageous. There is a problem here of an inability to understand history and a lack of sensitivity to the tragedy of our people. I intend to speak with him forthwith.”Speaking about Nazi crimes in World War II, the prime minister said on Sunday that “60 million were killed, including a third of my own people. Six million Jews killed by the Nazis and their collaborators,” he said, emphasizing the last word.“We will not forget, we will not forgive, we will always fight for the truth,” Netanyahu said in Hebrew and English.Agencies contributed to this report.

Shin Bet says it thwarted plot to assassinate defense minister-Agency says Palestinian Islamic Jihad-linked cell members sought to kill Avigdor Liberman with roadside IED, were motivated by PA benefits to terrorists-By Tamar Pileggi-TOI-FEB 19,18

The Shin Bet security service said Sunday it had arrested members of a Palestinian terrorist cell who were plotting to assassinate Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman with a roadside bomb.The Shin Bet also announced it busted a second Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist cell planning shooting attacks against IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians in the Etzion Bloc of the West Bank.A statement from the internal security service said six suspects linked to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group were involved in the plot to detonate an explosive device underneath Liberman’s car while it was traveling in the West Bank.According to the Shin Bet investigation, the group sought assistance in carrying out the attack from terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip. But the agency said the Palestinian would-be terrorists were “deterred” by Liberman’s extensive security detail and the plot was foiled “in the very early stages” of planning.The ringleaders of the cell were identified as Bethlehem-area natives Awad Mahmoud al-Asakra, 25, and Muhammad Ali Ibrahim al-Askara, 32.Awad Asakra in 2015 served two years in an Israeli prison for plotting a terrorist attack.Ali Ibrahim Askara, a known Islamic Jihad activist, was also previously jailed for terrorist-related activities, serving two separate sentences in Israel for planning attacks against IDF soldiers.The suspects told Shin Bet interrogators they sought assistance from terrorist groups in the Gaza Strip to buy the materials for the bomb. When they were unable to purchase the materials or secure assistance from Gaza, the group built a dummy device in an effort to prove their intent to their peers in the Strip.The dummy bomb was confiscated during their arrest.The agency only briefly referred to the second Palestinian Islamic Jihad cell that is said had planned shooting attacks, but did not elaborate.The Shin Bet investigation also revealed that members of both cells were motivated by the Palestinian Authority’s benefits package awarded to the families of terrorists killed or jailed for carrying out attacks against Israeli targets.The statement did not specify when the arrests took place, but indicated it was in recent months.The announcement comes on the heels of a flareup in tensions along the Gaza border. Early Sunday morning, two Palestinians were killed by IDF tank fire in Gaza, Palestinian medical sources said, after four Israeli soldiers were wounded by an explosive device along the Strip’s border and as a rocket hit an Israeli border town.Israeli fighter jets also launched a series of airstrikes over the weekend targeting 18 “Hamas targets” in the Gaza Strip, after four Israeli soldiers were injured, two of them seriously, by explosives planted on the border.Liberman told the Ynet news site later on Sunday that an umbrella group of Palestinian terrorists, the Popular Resistance Committee, was responsible for planting the device along the border.

Firearms debate rages as Florida rally coincides with gun show-[Reuters]-By Katanga Johnson and Zachary Fagenson-YAHOONEWS-February 18, 2018

MIAMI (Reuters) - Student survivors of a mass shooting that killed 17 people at a Florida high school called for gun restrictions on Saturday during an angry and somber rally, but attendees at a nearby gun show said firearms could not be blamed for the massacre.Wednesday's shooting in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Parkland fueled the long-running U.S. debate between supporters of tougher controls on firearms and advocates for gun rights, which are protected by the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.Both sides of the dispute were on display on Saturday.Many at a rally in Fort Lauderdale that was organized to demand tougher gun laws rejected comments by U.S. President Donald Trump and others that mental illness was the main factor behind the slaughter at Margory Stoneman Douglas High School."We need to pay attention to the fact that this isn't just a mental health issue," Emma Gonzalez, an 18-year-old student at the school, told hundreds demonstrators gathered on the steps of a federal building. The shooter "wouldn't have harmed that many students with a knife!" she yelled, shedding tears as the crowd cheered her on.Gonzalez criticized Trump for overturning a measure implemented by former President Barack Obama that required extra scrutiny of some gun buyers with a history of mental illness. She also condemned the National Rifle Association, which opposes laws that it says violate gun owners' rights."Politicians who sit in their gilded House and Senate seats funded by the NRA telling us nothing could have ever been done to prevent this, we call B.S." Gonzalez said.Nikolas Cruz, 19, a former student who was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, has been charged with 17 counts of murder. Police said he was armed with an AR-15-style rifle and had multiple magazines of ammunition.Cruz legally purchased the murder weapon from a licensed dealer in Coral Springs, Florida, the Broward County sheriff said.Representatives for the White House and the NRA did not immediately respond to requests for comment. On Friday, Trump visited a Florida hospital and met with people wounded in the shooting as well as first responders.Ryan Deitsch, 18, was among those locked in a classroom closet as the shooter stalked the school's corridors."The least lawmakers can do is vote on something," Deitsch said in an interview at the rally, referring to tighter gun controls. "What's the worst that can happen?"The rally coincided with a gun show attended by hundreds of people about 40 miles (64 km) away at the Dade County fairgrounds. Despite calls for the show to be canceled, there were more than $5 million worth of guns and accessories on display, organizers said, including dozens of assault-style rifles.Jorge Fernandez, a former police officer and show manager, said Florida Gun Shows, which runs more than 40 shows across the state, decided against canceling due to financial concerns.Joe Arrington, 29, a former law enforcement officer, was there with his infant daughter in his arms and a rifle over his shoulder. He said more background checks are needed on gun buyers, but that more regulation would not have stopped the Parkland massacre."I don't believe that any law that they would have added would have deterred what happened," Arrington said. "I think a lot of agencies didn't do their job necessarily like they were supposed to."The FBI has come under intense criticism after it said on Friday that it failed to act on a warning about Cruz that was called in to a tip line on Jan. 5. The caller provided information about Cruz's "desire to kill people ... as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting," the FBI said.Adolfo David Ginarte, 30, a hotel conference service manager, was checking out some of the more than 140 vendors at the gun show. He called it "un-American" for anyone to call for the show to be canceled in the wake of the shooting."Facts don't care about your feelings," he said. "Things are going to happen. Life is going to go forward. What happens if I'm offended by a movie? Are they going to cancel the movie? This isn't the first time and unfortunately it's not going to be the last time."(Writing by Alex Dobuzinskis; Editing by Daniel Wallis and Leslie Adler)

FBI admits failure to act on Florida school gunman, drawing anger-[Reuters]-By Bernie Woodall and Zachary Fagenson-YAHOONEWS-February 17, 2018

PARKLAND, Fla. (Reuters) - The Federal Bureau of Investigation said on Friday it had failed to act on a tip warning that the man now accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school possessed a gun, the desire to kill and the potential to commit a school shooting.The disclosure sparked angry disbelief from residents of the Miami suburb of Parkland still reeling from Wednesday's massacre, the deadliest shooting ever at a U.S. high school, and led Florida's governor to call for the FBI chief to resign.A person described as someone close to accused gunman Nikolas Cruz, 19, called an FBI tip line on Jan. 5, weeks before the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, to report concerns about him, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement."The caller provided information about Cruz's gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting," it said.That information should have been forwarded to the FBI's Miami field office for further investigation, but "we have determined that these protocols were not followed," the agency said.U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he has ordered a review of FBI procedures following the shooting, carried out by a gunman armed with an AR-15-style assault rifle and numerous ammunition cartridges."We have spoken with victims and families, and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy," FBI Director Christopher Wray said in a statement.The mishandled information followed a tip to the FBI in September about a YouTube comment in which a person named Nikolas Cruz said, "I'm going to be a professional school shooter." The FBI said it investigated that comment but was unable to trace its origins, closing the inquiry until Cruz surfaced in connection with Wednesday's mass shooting.The FBI's lapse regarding the Jan. 5 tip was met with anger in Florida after U.S. President Donald Trump made remarks seeming to chastise local residents for failing to alert authorities to Cruz's sometimes erratic and violent behavior prior to Wednesday's shooting rampage.Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.Florida Governor Rick Scott said Wray, appointed to head the FBI by Trump last year after the president fired James Comey, should step down over the agency's blunder."The FBI's failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable," Scott, a Republican, said in a statement. "We constantly promote 'See something, say something,' and a courageous person did just that to the FBI. And the FBI failed to act."The FBI separately has been criticized by some Republicans over its investigation of issues relating to Russia and the 2016 presidential election.At the funeral on Friday for massacre victim Meadow Pollack, an 18-year-old senior, family friend Jeff Richman expressed dismay at the FBI's failure."The FBI apologized? Tell that to families," said Richman, 53, an advertising executive who lives in Parkland.Broward County's chief public defender, Howard Finkelstein, was quoted by the South Florida Sun Sentinel newspaper as saying that Cruz's legal team planned to meet with prosecutors to offer a guilty plea in exchange for a life prison term."There is only one question: 'Should this young man live or die by execution?'" Finkelstein told the Sun Sentinel. "We believe it's in nobody's best interest to go through a circus of a trial."The public defender's office could not immediately be reached by Reuters for comment.-"KIDS DON'T NEED GUNS"-The massacre has raised concerns about potential lapses in school security and stirred the ongoing U.S. debate pitting proponents of tougher restrictions on firearms against advocates for gun rights, which are protected by the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.Authorities acknowledged that the tips to the FBI were not the only indications that Cruz was troubled.Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told a news conference his office had received about 20 "calls for service" in the last few years regarding Cruz and would scrutinize all of them to see if they were handled properly.Israel indicated law enforcement should not be held responsible for Wednesday's tragedy. "The only one to blame for this killing is the killer himself," he said.Some political leaders including Trump have said mental illness prompted the shooting. Cruz had been expelled for undisclosed disciplinary reasons from the school where the attack occurred. Former classmates have described him as a social outcast trouble-maker with a fascination for weaponry.Some relatives and friends of shooting victims blamed Florida's lenient gun laws, which allow an 18-year-old to buy an assault rifle. Outside a vigil on Friday, a sign read: "Kids don't need guns. No guns under 21."The outpouring of grief was reflected in a multitude of prayer services and vigils on Friday - a total of six at various places of worship in and around Parkland. Funerals for at least two victims were also held.Late in the day, the Republican president and first lady Melania Trump visited a hospital where survivors from the shooting were treated, meeting privately with victims and medical staff.“The job they’ve done is incredible and I want to congratulate you,” the president said as he shook one doctor's hand in front of reporters afterward. Trump did not respond when asked if the nation's gun laws needed to be changed, then walked into another room.He later appeared at the Broward County Sheriff's Office, along with the governor and other politicians, offering praise to first responders for the "great job you've done."The vice mayor of Broward County, a strongly Democratic area, earlier blasted any visit by Trump, saying Republicans had failed to back common-sense gun laws and rolled back measures restricting severely mentally ill people from buying weapons.(Additional reporting by Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee and Mark Hosenball, Steve Holland, Roberta Rampton and Susan Heavey in Washington, Steve Gorman in Los Angeles; Writing by Andrew Hay; Editing by Tom Brown, Will Dunham and Leslie Adler)

Florida school massacre suspect on authorities' radar in 2016: media-[Reuters]-By Katanga Johnson and Zachary Fagenson-YAHOONEWS-February 18, 2018

PARKLAND, Fla. (Reuters) - A teenager accused of fatally shooting 17 people at a Florida high school was investigated by police and state officials as far back as 2016 after slashing his arm in a social media video, and saying he wanted to buy a gun, but authorities determined he was receiving sufficient support, newspapers said on Saturday.Nikolas Cruz, 19, is charged with committing multiple murders on Wednesday at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. More than a dozen people also were wounded in the deadliest shooting at a U.S. high school.The charges can bring the death penalty, but prosecutors have not yet said if they will seek capital punishment. Days after the killings, a somber series of vigils and funerals were being held in and around Parkland, a Fort Lauderdale suburb of about 32,000 people.The South Florida Sun Sentinel first reported that a video of Cruz cutting his arm posted to the social media network Snapchat in September 2016 raised concerns among law enforcement and at the Florida Department of Children and Families."Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for," said a report written by department officials after investigators interviewed the teenager, the Sun Sentinel said.The newspaper reported investigators ultimately decided that Cruz, then 18, was receiving enough support from mental health professionals and from his school, and any risk in his case was low.The Department of Children and Families (DCF) has asked a court to release the records for transparency, adding it has reviewed the circumstances surrounding the 2016 case."Mental health services and supports were in place when this investigation closed," DCF Secretary Mike Carroll said in a statement.The long-simmering U.S. debate about gun rights played out on Saturday at events in the area.Hundreds of people attended a rally in Fort Lauderdale where students from the school demanded new gun control measures to tighten what they saw as easy access to firearms in the state. They also accused some politicians of being more concerned about protecting the firearms lobby than children."Because of these (current) gun laws, people that I know, people that I love, have died," Delaney Tarr, a senior at the school, told the rally.At a nearby gunshow, attendees said new laws would not have prevented the massacre, adding gun rights are protected by the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.-TRUMP CRITICIZES FBI-In a tweet on Saturday night President Donald Trump criticized the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for its handling of the case."Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable," Trump wrote on Twitter.He accused the FBI of "spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the (2016) Trump campaign."The FBI admitted on Friday that it failed to investigate a warning that Cruz possessed a gun and the desire to kill.A person described as close to Cruz called an FBI tip line on Jan. 5 to report concerns about him, according to the FBI. That information was not forwarded to the FBI's Miami office, in what agency officials called a breakdown in protocol.The disclosure spread angry disbelief among Parkland residents and prompted Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott to call for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign.U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered a review of FBI procedures following the shooting, in which 14 students and three school staff members died.Trump called local politicians and the school's principal from his Mar-a-Lago, Florida, resort on Saturday to express condolences, offer support and receive updates, a White House spokeswoman said. On Friday, he visited shooting survivors and first responders.He and some other Republican political leaders have said mental illness prompted the massacre. Cruz had been expelled from the high school for undisclosed disciplinary reasons and former classmates described him as an outcast and troublemaker with a fascination for weaponry.As more details emerged on the suspect, CNN reported that Cruz posted disparaging comments about Jews, African Americans and gays in a private chat group on the social media network Instagram."I think I am going to kill people," Cruz wrote in the group, according to CNN, which also quoted an unnamed law enforcement source as saying the suspect bought at least five guns in the past year.Cruz's attorneys at the Broward County Public Defender's Office did not return requests for comment on that or the 2016 report by Florida's Department of Children and Families."This kid exhibited every single known red flag, from killing animals to having a cache of weapons to disruptive behavior to saying he wanted to be a school shooter," the county's public defender, Howard Finkelstein, told the New York Times. The paper said it also received a copy of the report.Speaking on Saturday at an event in Dallas, Texas, Vice President Mike Pence said Trump was making the safety of the nation's schools a top priority."We will get to the bottom of what happened," Pence said, adding the administration would take "a renewed look at giving law enforcement and local authorities the tools they need to deal with individuals struggling with dangerous mental illness."(Additional reporting by Bernie Woodall in Parkland, Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee, Jeff Mason in West Palm Beach, Rich McKay in Atlanta and Lesley Wroughton in Washington; Writing by Alex Dobuzinskis and Jon Herskovitz; Editing by Bill Trott, Daniel Wallis and Keith Weir)

Four soldiers wounded, two seriously by bomb targeting Gaza border patrol-Troops were removing a flag from border fence when blast occurred; IDF tank hits observation post; Netanyahu promises 'we will respond appropriately'-By TOI staff-FEB 18,18

Four IDF soldiers were wounded when an explosive device was detonated on an IDF patrol along the Gaza Strip border on Saturday. Two of the soldiers were in a serious condition and two were moderately hurt, the army said.An Israeli tank fired a shell at an observation post in response to the attack, the army said.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is in Germany, called the incident “serious” and vowed Israel will respond.“The incident on the Gaza border is very serious. We will respond appropriately,” Netanayhu said, sending his wishes for a rapid recovery to the injured soldiers.President Reuven Rivlin said Israel would not be cowed by terror.“We will not be quiet in the face of any type of terror against our soldiers who are protecting the lives of the citizens of Israel,” he said.The incident occurred in the southern Gaza area near the city of Khan Younis, the IDF said. Information regarding the condition of the soldiers had been censored until their families were notified.The soldiers were evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital in Beersheeba for treatment, where three of them were rushed into surgery.An IDF spokesperson called the attack “a serious incident that aimed at destabilizing the region.”The spokesperson told reporters that the patrol stopped along the border to remove a flag that had been placed at the fence a day earlier during a protest, and that a device planted below the flag then detonated.The spokesperson said that the patrol — made up of Golani infantry soldiers and members of a combat engineering unit — was operating with standard procedures to remove any foreign object from the border fence, but that these would now be reviewed.Hadashot news TV reported said that further IDF retaliatory fire was likely.Israel Radio’s military correspondent called the incident “serious” and “irregular,” and Hebrew media reports said large IDF forces had been moved into the region.Palestinian media said the observation post targeted by the IDF in response belonged to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. There were no immediate claims of responsibility from the Palestinians.Islamic Jihad has been vowing to avenge an incident where Israel destroyed one of the terrorist group’s attack tunnels that crossed from Gaza into Israel, killing many of the groups members.On October 30, the IDF blew up the tunnel, which originated in the Gazan city of Khan Younis and crossed into Israeli territory, near Kibbutz Kissufim.According to the army, the tunnel had been under surveillance the entire time that it was inside Israeli territory and did not pose a threat to civilians.Some 14 terrorists, mostly from the Iran-backed group, including two senior officers, were killed in the blast and its aftermath. The army said later that this was not the primary objective of the tunnel demolition.The incident comes amid mounting warnings that tensions in Gaza could lead to a new conflict between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers. Israel holds Hamas responsible for any violence emanating from the Strip.Last week IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot warned ministers during a cabinet meeting that Israel could soon face another war with Gaza-based terror group Hamas, as a result of the deteriorating humanitarian and economic conditions in the coastal enclave.In a security assessment handed recently to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the defense establishment reiterated its belief that Hamas is not interested in another conflict with Israel. However, an economic collapse would make such a scenario inevitable.Hamas, which seized control of the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian Authority in 2007, has been under increasing pressure as the coastal enclave teeters on the verge of an economic and infrastructure collapse that UN Middle East peace envoy Nickolay Mladenov last week said was already “well beyond” a humanitarian crisis.Last month, the US froze over $100 million in contributions to UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, after the Palestinians announced they would no longer accept the US as a mediator in peace talks with Israel. The Palestinians were angered after US President Donald Trump on December 6 recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Palestinians threaten protests over new Damascus Gate watchposts-First of three security structures constructed at entrance to Old City to protect against stabbing attacks, sparking outrage over 'plan to Judaize Jerusalem'-By Khaled Abu Toameh-TOI-18 February 2018

A security watchpost installed at an entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem on Wednesday night has angered the Palestinians, who are accusing Israel of “changing the Arab and Islamic character” of the city.Palestinians said Thursday they were planning a series of protests to demand the removal of the two-story structure at the Damascus Gate, the main entrance into the walled city’s Muslim Quarter.The structure is part of an Israeli plan to improve security measures in the area, following a spate of stabbing and shooting attacks in the past two years.Two more concrete watchposts are being built at the entrance to Damascus Gate as part of the plan.The Palestinians also appealed to Arab and Islamic countries to intervene to force Israel to halt the implementation of the new security measures, several months after the installation of metal detectors, after a terror attack in which two Israeli policemen were shot dead outside the ultra-sensitive Temple Mount, sparked days of violent protests.Any new police or military structure in the flashpoint city has the potential to spark unrest, though, with Palestinians seeing them as an attempt by Israel to solidify its hold on the city.“This is another Israeli assault on Jerusalem and its Arab population,” charged a senior Fatah official living in the city. “Israel is mistaken if it thinks we will allow it to pursue with its plan to Judaize Jerusalem and empty it of its Arab residents.”#Israel forces establishes a control room on the Damascus Gate in the old city of #Jerusalem. #HandsOffJerusalem #BDS pic.twitter.com/msWZoWQE2N— Dr. Basem Naim (@basemn63) February 15, 2018-Palestinian residents of Jerusalem who were surprised to see the structure on Thursday morning expressed outrage over the move.“Damascus Gate has become a military fortress,” complained Ahmad Bukhari, a Palestinian activist and journalist. “Such measures distort the beautiful face of Jerusalem. It’s an ugly scene that’s harmful to the history and heritage of the city.”Izzat Al Husseini, another resident of East Jerusalem, said he too was “shocked” to see the post.“This is very sad,” he said. “We’re witnessing an attempt by Israel to alter the city’s Arab and Islamic character. We can’t let this pass quietly.”Yousef Natsheh, a senior official with the Islamic Waqf Department, denounced the installation of the watchpost as an “assault on Islamic heritage and an attempt to change our history.”He accused Israel of using security as an excuse to “distort” Damascus Gate and alter the Arab and Islamic character of Jerusalem.“What’s happening at Damascus Gate,” he added, “is morally, scientifically, and ethically unacceptable.”Some residents warned that the Israeli security measures could spark another wave of protests similar to those that took place after the installation of security cameras and metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount last year.That decision, which was later rescinded, came after two policemen were shot dead in a terror attack there.“Everyone here is shocked by the new Israeli security measures,” said shopkeeper Ahmed Abdeen.“I doubt if this new watch tower will pass without an Arab and Islamic response. I’m sure there will be strong protests like the ones we had in Jerusalem after Israel put metal detectors at the entrance to al-Haram al-Sharif,” he added, using the Muslim term for the Temple Mount.He and other merchants predicted that the strict security measures would deter many Palestinians and tourists from visiting the city.“Business has anyway been very bad for the past few years and the number of visitors has dropped significantly,” said Amjad Abu Khalaf, who works in a souvenir shop in the Christian Quarter. “Hundreds of [Arab-owned] shops in the Old City have closed down because the owners could no longer afford to pay taxes and other expenses,” he said. “If the tensions continue, we will see more businesses shut in the near future.”

Turkey denies using chemical weapons against Kurds in Syria-On Friday, hospital officials in northern Syria reported treating 6 with symptoms in line with exposure to toxic agents-By AFP-TOI-FEB 18,18

ANKARA, Turkey — Turkey has “never used” chemical weapons in Syria and accusations that it had done so during its offensive against a Syrian Kurdish militia are “baseless,” a Turkish diplomatic source said on Saturday.Turkey last month launched military operations dubbed “Olive Branch,” supporting Syrian rebels with ground troops and air strikes against the US-backed Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia viewed as “terrorists” by Ankara.The Turkish source was reacting to claims by the head of Afrin hospital in northern Syria that six men were treated late Friday after shelling during the offensive and had symptoms that were in line with exposure to toxic agents.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said shelling from either Turkey or allied factions hit Al-Sheikh Hadid, west of the town of Afrin, and left six people with “enlarged pupils” and “breathing difficulties.”Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP he could not confirm whether toxic gases were used.But the Turkish source said Ankara took the “utmost care” regarding civilian safety and that the claims Turkey was responsible for an alleged gas attack were “baseless.”“Turkey never used chemical weapons,” the source added. “[These are] lies… this is black propaganda.”Turkey says the YPG is linked to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has been waging an insurgency against the Turkish state since 1984.The PKK is blacklisted as a terror group by the United States and the European Union.But the YPG has been working closely with Washington to oust the Islamic State extremist group from Syria, which has strained relations between the two NATO allies.The Observatory says at least 78 civilians have died during Turkey’s operation but Ankara repeatedly insists it is taking all the necessary measures to protect civilians.

Time is now’ for action against Iran, McMaster urges-US national security adviser warns that Iranian proxies are 'becoming more and more capable,' as Tehran works to provide them with advanced weapons-By TOI staff and Agencies-FEB 18,18

US National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster warned Saturday against increased Iranian efforts to support its proxies in the Middle East, saying the “time is now” to act against Tehran.“What’s particularly concerning is that this network of proxies is becoming more and more capable, as Iran seeds more and more …destructive weapons into these networks,” McMaster said at the Munich Security Conference, according to Reuters.“So the time is now, we think, to act against Iran” he said.Hi warning comes on the heels of Iran’s piloting a drone into Israel last week from a base it has established in Syria.The Iranian drone, which entered northern Israel from Syria near the Jordan border, was shot down by an attack helicopter. In response, Israeli jets attacked the mobile command center from which it was operated, the army said.During the reprisal raid, one of the eight Israeli F-16 fighter jets that took part in the operation was apparently hit by a Syrian anti-aircraft missile and crashed. The Israeli Air Force then conducted a second round of airstrikes, destroying between a third and half of Syria’s air defenses, according to IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus.US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Wednesday the drone incident was a “wake-up call” to the world regarding Iranian efforts to cement its presence in Syria.“The drone flight this week is a wake-up call for all of us. Iran and Hezbollah are making plans to stay in Syria,” she said during a meeting of the UN Security Council.“Iran was once again doing what it does – risking conflict and testing the will of its neighbors and opponents to resist its aggression. Israel rightly took action to defend itself,” said Haley.The hostilities marked the first direct clash in Syria between Israel and Iran, after repeated warnings by Israeli leaders that Iran is working to establish a new front on the northern border.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned Israel would take military action to prevent Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria, as well against its Lebanese-proxy Hezbollah.Foreign media reports have attributed dozens of airstrikes in recent years against weapons convoys destined to Hezbollah and other strategic targets in Syria to Israel.At the UN, Haley said the Syrian government is acting as a “front” for Iran to sow instability in the region.“The Assad regime has become a front for Iran, Hezbollah, and their allies to advance the irresponsible and dangerous agenda for the Middle East,” said Haley.“When we look out across the Middle East, we know one thing for certain. When Iran and Hezbollah move in, instability always follows,” she added.McMaster’s also singled out Iran’s growing support for the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah.In Lebanon, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Thursday accused Hezbollah of threatening Lebanon and the region, and called for it to end its activities in Syria, where it is fighting on behalf of the Syrian government.Tillerson’s visit to Beirut came at time of tension between Lebanon and Israel, notably over the role of the Shiite Hezbollah — which controls a militia of tens of thousands of men and has already fought one war with Israel in 2006 and threatens to wage another — that dominated much of the conversation.A powerful force in Lebanon’s political sphere through its presence in Hariri’s government, Hezbollah is an arch-foe of Israel and considered a terrorist organization by the United States.It is a key ally of Lebanon’s President, Michel Aoun, and of Syrian President Bashar Assad. It has fighters on the ground in Syria supporting Assad’s regime.Aoun asked Tillerson, during a meeting at the presidential palace, for US help in preventing what he said were ongoing Israeli violations of Lebanon’s sovereignty on the ground, at sea, and in the air.His call coincides with heightened tensions between Lebanon and Israel over contested rights to offshore natural gas exploration in the Mediterranean, and Israel’s construction of a border wall that Lebanon says encroaches on its territory. Lebanon is also protesting Israeli violations of its airspace, often to bomb Iranian or Syrian targets inside neighboring Syria.

Fear of Syrian war expanding may paradoxically trigger peace deal-As unrest risks flaring into a global conflict, diplomats warn of possibility for direct confrontation between the US and Russia-By Philippe RATER-TOI-FEB 18,18

UNITED NATIONS (AFP) — Syria’s civil war is in danger of flaring into a regional or even global conflict, but some diplomats hope the high stakes could, paradoxically, pave the way for a peace accord.Last week, five Russians were likely killed in a US-led coalition bombing on pro-regime Syrian fighters, the Russian government said.A few days later Israel lost an F-16 warplane in reprisal attacks against Syrian and Iranian military targets after intercepting an alleged Iranian drone.These serious and unprecedented events were discussed in an urgent mid-week UN Security Council meeting.“The ingredients for a regional or potentially major global confrontation have come together now, and the risk must be taken seriously,” France’s UN ambassador Francois Delattre told AFP.Since the destruction of the Iranian drone “there has been no escalation,” said a colleague of Delattre’s on the UN Security Council, speaking on condition of anonymity.But there is now a risk of direct confrontation between the United States and Russia, possibly with new deaths, another diplomat countered.-Russia cooling on Syria? On Wednesday, a Security Council meeting on Syria that was initially slated to be public but was ultimately held behind closed doors, suggested a turning point had been reached.The language that emerged was a mix of tension and caution that converged on one point: the need for unity to calm things down.UN ambassador Nikki Haley said peace “is urgent” in Syria, then blamed Iran for its role in the violence.“On every front of this conflict, we find fighters imported by Iran from Lebanon, Iraq, and Afghanistan,” she said.Haley described it as “a dangerous game of pushing boundaries, instead of behaving responsibly and committing to peace.”Russian ambassador Vassily Nebenzia told reporters that his country is “doing everything to prevent any major international confrontation in Syria. We are working on that hard.”According to Nebenzia, no country has “delivered more than us on the political process in Syria.”He cited Moscow’s ties with the Damascus regime and the opposition, its support for so-called “de-escalation zones,” and peace talks in Astana and Sochi which Russia says are aimed at facilitating other talks in Geneva.A diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that Russia is losing ground even after all it has invested militarily in Syria.Moscow’s influence over Damascus remains tentative, as seen in a recent warning from the Syrian regime on the results of talks in Sochi aimed at forming a committee to amend the Syrian constitution.Syria does not want its make-up to be dictated by the United Nations, nor does Moscow seem keen on seeing Iran making inroads in Syria and risk regular clashes with Israel.-‘Dark hours’-In closed door meetings, Russia, which may be at the end of its military and financial commitment in Syria, speaks of its will to get out of the conflict, insists it has no hidden agenda, and even goes so far as seeking Western help to persuade Damascus, according to this diplomat.This is a new position after the series of Russian vetoes in late 2017 of Western resolutions that went against Syria.“The road to peace will come when all of the parties stop provoking each other, and choose the responsible path,” Haley said.In that sense the risk of a major international clash in Syria might open the doors for a breakthrough.This can serve as “leverage to obtain a peace accord in Syria at a time when lines are beginning to move,” said Delattre.After seven years of a complex and devastating war that has brought in many regional and international actors, “we are back to the darkest hours,” diplomats say.They point out a list of besieged areas such as eastern Ghouta, Idlib and Afrin, the target of a Turkish military operation against Kurdish militia forces allied with the United States.The operation has created tension between the United States and Turkey, two key members of NATO, a military alliance dominated by Washington.Due to this tension, NATO strategic interests are now affected by how the balance of power in the Syrian war evolves.

Russian mercenaries, a secretive weapon in Syria-Moscow on Thursday finally recognized that five of its citizens were likely killed in the strikes in the Deir Ezzor province-By Maria Antonova, kremlin and Deir Ezzor-TOI-FEB 18,18

MOSCOW, Russia (AFP) — The death of Russian citizens in Syria from a US coalition strike last week, which has been played down by both Moscow and Washington, has exposed the role of Russian mercenaries in the multi-front conflict.The incident followed a steady trickle of reports about Russians dying in battle in Syria while employed as guns for hire in a privately-owned outfit whose role may be securing oilfields for President Bashar Assad.Russia on Thursday has finally recognized that five Russian citizens, not officially affiliated with the Russian military, were likely killed in the strikes in eastern Syria, in the first admission of non-military combat casualties.The US had said the coalition acted in self-defense when an enemy unit of 300-500 people launched an attack on an established SDF position east of the Euphrates river in Deir Ezzor province.The coalition warned the Russian military and proceeded to strike the formation, killing up to 100 people. The Russian military said it had no troops in the area.While US officials have refused to disclose the nationality of the attackers, various reports indicated a death toll of up to several hundred Russians from the strike.Russia can legally prosecute mercenaries under an existing law which has been applied against several citizens fighting in Ukraine and Syria in recent years.In 2014, two Russian men, Vadim Gusev and Yevgeny Sidorov, were sentenced to three years in prison after they recruited over 200 former military soldiers to an outfit called the Slavonic Corps for a trip to Syria’s Deir Ezzor.According to Fontanka website, which has chronicled the involvement of private military contractors in Syria, the Slavonic Corps later became the core of a new mercenary group recruited by former member Dmitry Utkin, nicknamed Wagner.The Wagner group has no website or social networking page, instead attracting men with military experience through word of mouth.Utkin and the Wagner group was blacklisted by the US Treasury in 2016 for having “recruited and sent soldiers to fight alongside separatists in eastern Ukraine”.It is known to train at a military base in a village called Molkino outside Krasnodar in southern Russia. According to Fontanka, the Wagner group has fought in Syria since late 2015.Unlike Gusev and Sidorov, Wagner has not been prosecuted. Instead, he was honoured in the Kremlin in December 2016. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said at the time that Utkin was invited as a decorated military veteran.According to Fontanka, Wagner is associated with a Russian company Yevro Polis, which has signed a deal with the Syrian government.Under the deal, the company would capture and secure oil and gas infrastructure in Syria in exchange for a 25 percent share in future resource production.Fontanka has tied Yevro Polis to the empire of Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Saint-Petersburg businessman running the company Concord Catering which controls several restaurant businesses and has won many contracts from the Russian defence ministry.Prigozhin, and Concord Catering, were blacklisted by the US Treasury for “having materially assisted” Russian officials and being tied to a company building a military base near Ukraine’s border. Yevro Polis is also on the blacklist.The US special prosecutor investigating Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election indicted Prigozhin Friday for running an influence campaign on the Internet through a “troll farm” company in Saint-Petersburg.Prigozhin has denied ties both to the Internet company and to Wagner group.Mercenaries not directly affiliated with the Russian military may be convenient for Moscow’s business interests in Syria while assuring deniability of government involvement.But after numerous reports of casualties in Syria and capture of two Russians, reportedly from the Wagner group, by IS jihadists last year, Russian officials have called for legalising mercenaries.Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in January said legislation was needed to “protect these people,” referring to Russians in private military companies.“Everybody understands the need for a law,” said Mikhail Yemelyanov, an MP in the Just Russia party, who is one of the authors of a bill on private military companies currently being reviewed by government.Asked if the need was due to Russians fighting in Syria, Yemelyanov told AFP that it’s “because it’s not just Russians fighting there” and because private military companies are legal in many countries.Some reports have said that the Russian defence ministry did not know about Russian citizens fighting in the area at the time of the US coalition strike. This would be impossible under the new bill, Yemelyanov said.“We wrote in the bill that the defence ministry would coordinate and that participation in armed conflicts would only be with their permission,” he said.“If our bill would be passed, everyone would know who is fighting where.”

Lavrov calls US election meddling claims ‘blabber’-US special counsel alleges that in 2016, campaign led by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a close ally of Putin, became focused on boosting Trump, demeaning Clinton-By AFP-TOI-FEB 18,18

MUNICH, Germany (AFP) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Saturday dismissed as “blabber” accusations that Moscow had interfered in the US election that brought President Donald Trump to power.“So as long as we don’t see facts, everything else is blabber,” Lavrov said at the Munich Security Conference, a day after the US indicted 13 Russians for running a secret campaign to sway the American vote.The indictments — which include the first charges laid by US special counsel Robert Mueller for election interference — detailed a stunning operation launched in 2014 in a bid to sow social division in the United States and influence American politics “including the presidential election of 2016.”Mueller alleges that by mid-2016, the campaign — under the direction of Yevgeny Prigozhin, a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin — became focused on boosting Trump and demeaning his rivals including Democrat Hillary Clinton.It allegedly involved “hundreds” of people working in shifts and with a budget of millions of dollars. Three companies were also indicted.Mueller charges that members of the group posed as US citizens on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, posting content that reached “significant numbers” of Americans.The content was retweeted by the president’s two eldest sons Don Jr and Eric, as well as other top campaign officials and members of Trump’s inner circle.The indictments made no judgement however on whether the Russian efforts had altered the outcome of the election.When asked to comment on the charges at the top security gathering in Germany, Lavrov said: “I don’t have a reaction because anything and everything can be published. We see how accusations, statements, are multiplying.”But he stressed that US officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, had in the past “denied that any country influenced results of the election”.Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova had earlier rubbished Mueller’s allegations as “absurd”.Trump meanwhile has seized on the indictments as proof that his campaign team did not conspire with Moscow.“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for president,” he tweeted Friday.“The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!”None of the 13 Russian suspects are in US custody.

Risk of nuclear war at ‘highest point since Cuban missile crisis’-Ex-US energy secretary Ernest Moniz, who help negotiate Iran deal, says poor diplomacy and better technology increase the risk of an accidental weapons launch-By TOI staff    -FEB 18,18

The global risk of a nuclear weapon being launched accidentally is at the highest level since the Cuban Missile Crisis, the former US energy secretary has warned.Ernest Moniz, the Obama-era nuclear physics who was instrumental in securing the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, told the Guardian newspaper this week the margin of error in avoiding a catastrophe was steadily diminishing.He said better technology, ramped up threats and poor communication between world powers has made the chance of detonating a nuclear weapon “higher than it’s been since the Cuban missile crisis.”Moniz noted the false alert that was sent out last month in Hawaii warning residents the Pacific island state was the target of an imminent ballistic missile.The emergency alert sent that to all Hawaii mobile phones and was transmitted by television and radio stations sparked widespread panic.A retraction wasn’t issued until nearly 40 minutes later.“Thirty-eight minutes is substantially longer than the decision time that President Trump or President Putin or other leaders with nuclear weapon states would have for a response to a warning about significant incoming missiles,” Moniz told the paper.“We know we’ve had those warnings many times in history and we’ve managed so far to dodge the bullet,” he said. “But dodging the bullets is more difficult when there’s not significant communications going on and a lot of tensions between the countries.”Monitz also said the administration of US President Donald Trump was heightening the global risk of using nuclear weapons, noting the recently released Nuclear Posture Review that included plans to invest $10 billion on upgrading the B61 gravity bomb.“The use of a new class of submarine-launched smaller weapons seems to us to just add to the issues of miscalculation,” he explained.The former secretary also warned that the risk of a large scale cyber attack could trigger a nuclear war between world powers.“A major infrastructure cyberattack could not be a nationally endorsed attack at all,” Moniz said. “It could be from some third-party hackers who might enjoy a nuclear exchange between the two major powers.”Moniz also urged the international community to step up efforts “quietly and systematically” to replace medical sources of radioactive materials that are stored in unsecured locations to prevent their theft by terrorist groups.“I would say it’s kind of remarkable that we have not had a significant incident to date in that realm,” he said.

Netanyahu vows Israel will respond to Gaza border bombing-Four soldiers wounded, two seriously, as bomb goes off next to patrol removing a flag from the border fence-By TOI staff-FEB 18,18

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday vowed Israel will respond after four IDF soldiers were wounded by a bomb planted along the Gaza Strip border fence.An Israeli tank fired a shell at an observation post in response to the attack, but Netanyahu said there would be further reaction from Israel.“The incident on the Gaza border is very serious. We will respond appropriately,” said Netanyahu, who is in Germany attending a security conference. He also sent his wishes for a rapid recovery to the soldiers, two of whom were in a serious condition.President Reuven Rivlin also said Israel would not be cowed by terror.“We will not be quiet in the face of any type of terror against our soldiers who are protecting the lives of the citizens of Israel,” he said.An IDF spokesperson called the attack “a serious incident that aimed at destabilizing the region.”The army said the soldiers were hit when a patrol stopped along the border to remove a flag that had been placed at the fence a day earlier during a protest, and that a device planted below the flag then detonated.The spokesperson said that the patrol — made up of Golani infantry soldiers and members of a combat engineering unit — was operating with standard procedures to remove any foreign object from the border fence, but that these would now be reviewed.The soldiers were evacuated by helicopter to Soroka hospital in Beersheeba for treatment, where three of them were rushed into surgery.Palestinian media said the observation post targeted by the IDF in response belonged to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. There were no immediate claims of responsibility from the Palestinians.Islamic Jihad has been vowing to avenge an incident where Israel destroyed one of the terrorist group’s attack tunnels that crossed from Gaza into Israel, killing many of the groups members.On October 30, the IDF blew up the tunnel, which originated in the Gazan city of Khan Younis and crossed into Israeli territory, near Kibbutz Kissufim.According to the army, the tunnel had been under surveillance the entire time that it was inside Israeli territory and did not pose a threat to civilians.Some 14 terrorists, mostly from the Iran-backed group, including two senior officers, were killed in the blast and its aftermath. The army said later that this was not the primary objective of the tunnel demolition.The incident comes amid mounting warnings that tensions in Gaza could lead to a new conflict between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers. Israel holds Hamas responsible for any violence emanating from the Strip.Last week IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot warned ministers during a cabinet meeting that Israel could soon face another war with Gaza-based terror group Hamas, as a result of the deteriorating humanitarian and economic conditions in the coastal enclave.In a security assessment handed recently to Netanyahu, the defense establishment reiterated its belief that Hamas is not interested in another conflict with Israel. However, an economic collapse would make such a scenario inevitable.Hamas, which seized control of the Gaza Strip from the Palestinian Authority in 2007, has been under increasing pressure as the coastal enclave teeters on the verge of an economic and infrastructure collapse that UN Middle East peace envoy Nickolay Mladenov last week said was already “well beyond” a humanitarian crisis.Last month, the US froze over $100 million in contributions to UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, after the Palestinians announced they would no longer accept the US as a mediator in peace talks with Israel. The Palestinians were angered after US President Donald Trump on December 6 recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Deadly Parkland shooting: What we know-Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student at the school, has confessed to the deadly attack in Florida which killed 17 people-By AFP-TOI-FEB 18,18

PARKLAND, United States — Seventeen people were shot dead Wednesday by a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.Here’s what we know:Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student at the school, has confessed to the shooting.Cruz has been described as a troubled teenager whose behavior led him to be kicked out of the school last year for unspecified “disciplinary reasons.”The FBI admitted Friday it received a detailed warning last month about Cruz’s gun ownership, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting.The information was not handled appropriately, the top US law enforcement agency said, and no action was taken.According to local newspaper reports, Cruz had been accused of threatening fellow students and bringing knives to school.Even before he was expelled, Cruz’s pattern of disturbing behavior had attracted the attention of fellow students, teachers and neighbors.“He was in my class at the beginning of the year and when I first met him I knew that something was off about him and he was kind of weird,” Manolo Alvarez, 17, told AFP.Broward County Mayor Beam Furr said Cruz had been treated for a time at a mental health clinic, though he had not been back for over a year.Among the posts on Cruz’s social media accounts were pictures of dead animals and his gun collection.Cruz was given up for adoption at birth in September 1998, along with a brother. The adoptive parents were a couple in their 50s, according to the Sun Sentinel, the local newspaper.His father died when he was young, while his mother passed away last November, leaving the boys in the care of a family friend, according to the Sentinel.A mugshot of Cruz shows a young man with chestnut hair, hazel eyes and freckles.Cruz arrived at the high school in an Uber at 2:19 pm, shortly before classes were scheduled to end for the day, according to the authorities.He was dressed in a maroon T-shirt and was carrying a semi-automatic AR-15 rifle in a black soft case. He had “multiple” magazines of bullets in a backpack.Less than three minutes after arriving at the school Cruz began roaming the hallways firing into multiple classrooms.Terrified students barricaded the doors and hid in closets and under desks texting for help while others fled the school.Cruz reportedly fired a total of more than 100 rounds.At some point, a fire alarm was pulled, sending students streaming out of the buildings on the sprawling high school campus.It is not clear whether Cruz pulled the alarm himself or if it was done by someone else.Cruz told police that he discarded his AR-15 rifle and fled the school by blending in with other students.After the shooting, Cruz stopped at a Wal-Mart, where he bought a drink at the Subway restaurant there.He was in a McDonald’s at 3:01 pm and was detained 40 minutes later in Coral Springs after police identified him using school security camera footage.-The weapon-Cruz carried out the shooting using a semi-automatic AR-15-style rifle that had been legally purchased, according to the authorities.The AR-15 is a relatively lightweight civilian version of the military M-16.The AR-15 is different than the M-16 in that the military version allows for automatic bursts of fire while the AR-15 requires single pulls of the trigger.Magazines for the rifle generally hold 10 to 30 rounds and Broward County Sheriff Bobby Israel said Cruz had “countless magazines, multiple magazines.”AR stands for ArmaLite Rifle, the company that originally made the weapon, which costs as little as $500.The AR-15 and other guns defined as assault rifles were banned by Congress in 1994, but the prohibition expired in 2004.AR-15-style rifles have been used in a number of recent mass shootings including the massacre of concert-goers in Las Vegas last year, the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, and the mass murders at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.-The victims-The victims of the shooting ranged in age from 14 to 49. Fourteen students, one teacher and two sports coaches were among the dead.Chris Hixon, 49, wrestling coach and athletic director at the school-Aaron Feis, 37, assistant football coach and security guard-Scott Beigel, 35, geography teacher and cross-country coach-Alyssa Alhadeff, 14-Martin Duque Anguiano, 14-Jamie Guttenberg, 14-Cara Loughran, 14-Gina Montalto, 14-Alaina Petty, 14-Alex Schachter, 14-Peter Wang, 15-Luke Hoyer, 15-Carmen Schentrup, 16-Nicholas Dworet, 17-Joaquin Oliver, 17-Helena Ramsay, 17-Meadow Pollack, 18.

Calls for FBI director to resign following missed tips on Florida shooter-Florida governor says Christopher Wray should quit, as lawmakers demand answers as to what went wrong-By SADIE GURMAN-TOI-FEB 18,18

WASHINGTON (AP) — The revelation that the FBI botched a potentially life-saving tip on the Florida school shooting suspect is a devastating blow to America’s top law enforcement agency at a time when it is already under extraordinary political pressure.Even before the startling disclosure that the FBI failed to investigate a warning that the suspect, Nikolas Cruz, could be plotting an attack, the bureau was facing unprecedented criticism from US President Donald Trump and other Republicans, who have accused it of partisan bias.The agency and its supporters had been able to dismiss past criticism as just politics, but this time it had no option but to admit it made a disastrous mistake.The FBI’s acknowledgment that it mishandled the tip prompted a sharp rebuke from its boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a call from Florida’s Republican Gov. Rick Scott, a Trump ally, for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign.Wray, on the job for just six months, had already been in a precarious position defending the bureau from relentless attacks by Trump and other Republicans. They are still dissatisfied with its decision not to charge Hillary Clinton with crimes related to her use of a private email server, and they see signs of bias in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of possible Trump campaign ties to Russia.As evidence, they’ve cited the former deputy director’s connection to Clinton allies, and they’ve publicized anti-Trump text messages exchanged between an FBI agent and a bureau lawyer. Democrats have said the accusations are aimed at damaging Mueller’s investigation and protecting Trump.Through it all, Wray has repeatedly stood up to Trump, defending the bureau’s independence and publicly praising its agents in implicit rebuttals to the president’s criticism. Wray unsuccessfully fought to block the release of a classified Republican memo accusing the FBI of abusing its surveillance powers in the Russia probe — a document Trump wanted aired. Wray also publicly contradicted White House accounts of how it handled recent domestic abuse allegations involving an aide.The shooting provides fresh grounds to criticize the FBI. First it was revealed that the FBI failed to delve into a YouTube comment posted by a “Nikolas Cruz” that said, “Im going to be a professional school shooter.” The FBI said it could not determine who made it.On Friday, the bureau said it had failed to act on a tip that Cruz had a “desire to kill people,” disturbing social media posts and access to a gun. Cruz is charged with killing 17 people in the school he once attended.Sessions, a Trump loyalist who has at times seemed to welcome criticism of the FBI, called the massacre a “tragic consequence” of the FBI’s failure. He ordered a review of the Justice Department procedures.The House Judiciary and Oversight committees, whose Republican leaders have been some of the strongest FBI critics, demanded Wray brief them on what went wrong.Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican, said it was “inexcusable” the FBI did not follow protocols and urged Congress to launch its own investigation. Democratic Rep. Ted Deutch of Florida promised to be in “close communication with the FBI so we can get to the bottom of this.”Wray apologized in a rare statement admitting the FBI’s missteps. But Scott, the governor, said that “isn’t going to cut it.”“People must have confidence in the follow-through from law enforcement,” he said, calling for Wray to step down.This isn’t the first time the FBI has been seen as missing an opportunity to prevent a major violent attack. The white supremacist who killed nine people at a historically black church in South Carolina in 2015 was able to purchase his weapon only because of breakdowns in the FBI’s background check system. The background check examiner who evaluated the shooter’s request to buy a gun never saw an arrest report in which he admitted to possessing illegal drugs. Under federal rules, that should have been enough to disqualify him from a gun purchase.Congress in 2009 criticized the FBI for missteps ahead of a shooting that left 13 people dead at Fort Hood, Texas, after finding that agents failed to act on emails between the gunman and terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki.In the Florida school shooting, “somebody made a mistake, somebody did not do their job,” said Jeffrey Ringel, a former FBI agent and Joint Terrorism Task force member who now works for the Soufan Group, a private security firm.“The FBI will be criticized for a failing that they have basically owned up to,” he said. “It’s a learning lesson. Unfortunately, a very expensive learning lesson.”

Florida school massacre suspect on authorities' radar in 2016: report-[Reuters]-By Katanga Johnson and Zachary Fagenson-YAHOONEWS-February 17, 2018

PARKLAND, Fla. (Reuters) - A teenager accused of shooting to death 17 people at a Florida high school was investigated by police and state officials as far back as 2016 after slashing his arm in a social media video, and saying he wanted to buy a gun, but authorities determined he was receiving sufficient support, a newspaper said on Saturday.Nikolas Cruz, 19, is charged with committing multiple murders on Wednesday at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, a Miami suburb. More than a dozen people also were wounded in the deadliest shooting at a U.S. high school.More vigils and funerals were scheduled for this weekend in and around Parkland. Two gun shows and a rally calling for the firearm safety legislation also were due to be held nearby.According to a report by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, a video of Cruz cutting his arm posted to the social media network Snapchat in September 2016 raised concerns among law enforcement and at the Florida Department of Children and Family Services."Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for," said a report written by department officials after investigators interviewed the teenager, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.The newspaper reported that the investigators ultimately decided that Cruz, then 18, was receiving enough support from mental health professionals and from his school, and that any risk in his case was low.Representatives for the Department of Children and Family Services did not respond to requests from comment.On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation admitted it failed to investigate a warning this year that Cruz possessed a gun and the desire to kill.A person described as close to Cruz called an FBI tip line on Jan. 5 to report concerns about him, according to the FBI. That information was not forwarded to the FBI's Miami office, in what agency officials called a breakdown in protocol.The disclosure spread angry disbelief among Parkland residents and led Florida's Republican Governor Rick Scott to call for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign."We have spoken with victims and families and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy," Wray said in a statement on Friday.FBI PROCEDURE UNDER REVIEW-U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered a review of FBI procedures following the shooting, in which 14 students and three school staff members died.The latest U.S. mass shooting has raised concerns about potential lapses in school security and stirred the continuing U.S. debate pitting proponents of tougher restrictions on firearms against advocates for gun rights, which are protected by the U.S. Constitution's Second Amendment.U.S. President Donald Trump and some other political leaders have said mental illness prompted the massacre. Cruz had been expelled from the high school for undisclosed disciplinary reasons and former classmates described him as an outcast and troublemaker with a fascination for weaponry.According to CNN, Cruz posted disparaging comments about Jews, African Americans and gays in a private chat group on the social media network Instagram."I think I am going to kill people," Cruz wrote in the group, according to CNN, which also quoted an unnamed law enforcement source as saying the suspect bought at least five guns in the past year.Cruz's attorneys at the Broward County Public Defender's Office could not immediately be reached for comment.Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel has said that his office had received about 20 "calls for service" in the past few years regarding Cruz and would scrutinize all of them to see if they were handled properly.In Coral Springs, a neighboring suburb, Life Fellowship Church Pastor Harold Altamirano and about three dozen worshipers gathered on Saturday to walk around the community and pray for healing."We just want to tell Parkland that you are not alone. We are hurting with you," Altamirano said. "Let's not allow fear to win. Love has to have the last say."(Additional reporting by Bernie Woodall in Parkland and Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee; Writing by Alex Dobuzinskis; Editing by Alison Williams and Bill Trott)

Cyberattacks are costly — over $57b in US in 2016 — and things could get worse-White House notes particular concern over targeting of so-called critical infrastructure, such as highways, power grids, communications systems, and dams-By AFP-TOI-FEB 18,18

WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) — Cyberattacks cost the United States between $57 billion and $109 billion in 2016, a White House report said Friday, warning of a “spillover” effect for the broader economy if the situation worsens.A report by the White House Council of Economic Advisers sought to quantify what it called “malicious cyber activity directed at private and public entities” including denial of service attacks, data breaches and theft of intellectual property, and sensitive financial and strategic information.It warned of malicious activity by “nation-states” and specifically cited Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea.The report noted particular concern over attacks on so-called critical infrastructure, such as highways, power grids, communications systems, dams, and food production facilities which could lead to important spillover impacts beyond the target victims.“If a firm owns a critical infrastructure asset, an attack against this firm could cause major disruption throughout the economy,” the report said.It added that concerns were high around cyberattacks against the financial and energy sectors.“These sectors are internally interconnected and interdependent with other sectors as well as robustly connected to the internet, and are thus at a highest risk for a devastating cyberattack that would ripple through the entire economy,” it said.The report offered little in the way of new recommendations on improving cybersecurity, but noted that the situation is hurt by “insufficient data” as well as “underinvestment” in defensive systems by the private sector.The document was issued a day after US officials blamed Russia for last year’s devastating “NotPetya” ransomware attack, calling it a Kremlin effort to destabilize Ukraine which then spun out of control, hitting companies in the US, Europe and elsewhere.It said Russia, China, North Korea and other nation-states “often engage in sophisticated, targeted attacks,” with a specific emphasis on industrial espionage.“If they have funding needs, they may conduct ransom attacks and electronic thefts of funds,” the report said.But threats were also seen from “hacktivists,” or politically motivated groups, as well as criminal organizations, corporate competitors, company insiders and “opportunists.”In an oft-repeated recommendation, the White House report said more data sharing could help thwart some attacks.“The field of cybersecurity is plagued by insufficient data, largely because firms face a strong disincentive to report negative news,” the report said.“Cyber protection could be greatly improved if data on past data breaches and cyberattacks were more readily shared across firms.”
