Hamas members in East Jerusalem could lose residency under new law-Interior minister now permitted to cancel permits over 'breach of trust' to the State of Israel-By Marissa Newman-TOI-MAR 7,18

The Knesset on Wednesday enacted a law permitting the interior minister to revoke the permanent residency status of East Jerusalem residents who are found to have committed actions constituting a “breach of trust” to the State of Israel.A government bill, and a similar proposal by Likud MK Amir Ohana, sailed through the plenum in second and third readings with 48 in favor, 16 opposed, and six abstentions.The new law will give Interior Minister Aryeh Deri the authority to strip the residency of Palestinians with ties to terrorist groups, convicted terrorists, would-be attackers, or those convicted of treason, according to the proposed legal definition of “breach of trust.”It would also likely apply to East Jerusalem Palestinians who have attacked IDF soldiers, which Israeli law defines as a terror offense.The proposal came after the High Court of Justice in September ruled the Interior Ministry did not have the right to revoke the permanent residency status of four Palestinian parliamentarians with ties to the Hamas terror group, which it had done 10 years earlier for “breach of trust.” In its decision, the court also stalled the implementation of its ruling for six months, in order to give the Knesset the opportunity to pass legislation that would grant the ministry the authority to revoke residency status.The Knesset law appears to apply only to longstanding East Jerusalem residents, namely those who, upon their birth, had a parent with permanent residency, or residents who have held permanent residency for over 15 years. An interior minister decision to strip residency may be appealed, the law says.Israel annexed what had been the Jordanian-controlled East Jerusalem and Old City after 1967’s Six Day War and offered permanent residency status to the area’s inhabitants. East Jerusalem residents generally have Israeli papers that enable them to travel freely about the city and enjoy the social benefits awarded to Israeli citizens.The law would also apply to Golan Heights residents who hold permanent residency rather than citizenship.In his opening remarks upon presenting his bill, Ohana said it was meant to target Hamas members living in East Jerusalem who are eligible for Israeli welfare benefits.Interior ministers have for several years been taking action to revoke the residency of terror accomplices and suspects involved in terror activities, as well as their relatives.In January 2017, Deri said he had ordered his office to revoke the residency of 10 relatives of a Palestinian terrorist who had killed four soldiers in a truck-ramming attack in Jerusalem. A year earlier, Deri revoked the residency rights of four Palestinians charged with taking part in deadly attacks in Jerusalem.In 2011, the Knesset passed a law proposed by Yisrael Beytenu MK David Rotem that allows for revoking the citizenship of Israelis convicted of terrorism or espionage.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

Gazans plan ‘peaceful resistance’ tent protest near Israel border-Organizers hope six-week action to urge 'right of return' for Palestinian refugees will attract hundreds of thousands-By Sue Surkes-TOI-MAR 7,18

A group of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip announced plans Wednesday to erect a tent city near the enclave’s border with Israel to protest Israel’s refusal to grant Palestinian refugees and their descendants a full “right of return” — permission to live in Israel.The group wants hundreds of thousands of Gazans, including families, to come join the tent city “at the nearest, safe point from the border” with Israel, the Reuters news agency reported Wednesday.That border is the site of frequent violent flare-ups between Palestinian protesters and Israeli troops.The protest organizers said their demonstration would be non-violent and “endorse peaceful resistance as a new way to win our rights, foremost the right of return” of refugees to what is now Israel.The six-week protest is scheduled to start on March 30, marked by Palestinians each year as Land Day to commemorate six Arab Israelis who were shot dead by Israeli police and troops during mass demonstrations in 1976 against plans to confiscate Arab land in Galilee.It will end on May 15 — the day after Israeli Independence Day, which the Palestinians call the Nakba, or Catastrophe, marking the displacement of thousands of Palestinians as the result of Israel’s creation in 1948.Organizers said the project was supported by several Palestinian factions, including Gaza’s ruling Hamas, a terrorist group which is dedicated to Israel’s destruction, but that none would be present at the protest. The United Nations would be notified, they said.Of the hundreds of thousands of refugees who left or were forced out of Israel when the country was established, a figure estimated in the low tens of thousands are still believed to be alive. But their descendants, considered refugees under the unique designation afforded by the UN to Palestinians, number in the millions.Israel has for years demanded that the UN change its designation of Palestinian refugees, and that it use the same criteria it applies for other refugee populations worldwide among which descendants of original refugees are not counted as refugees.In previous rounds of peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians, the latter have sought a “right of return” to Israel for these millions. No Israeli government would ever be likely to accept this demand, since it would spell the end of Israel as a Jewish-majority state. Israel’s general position is that Palestinian refugees and their descendants would become citizens of a Palestinian state at the culmination of the peace process, just as Jews who fled or were forced out of Middle Eastern countries by hostile governments became citizens of Israel.

Palestinian leadership to meet amid Abbas health worries-Expected selection of new members to PLO's top decision-making body next month is further fueling speculation on PA chief's future-By Agencies-TOI-MAR 7,18

RAMALLAH, West Bank — The chief Palestinian legislative body will hold its first meeting in nearly a decade next month to elect a new leadership, officials said Wednesday, a step that could pave the way for a future successor to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.According to Ahmad Majdalani, a top Palestinian official, the nearly 700-member Palestine National Council will meet on April 30 in Ramallah.The purpose of the meeting would be to discuss political issues and to fill positions on the powerful Executive Committee, officials said.The 18-member committee is the top Palestinian decision-making body. But it is dominated by an aging leadership and it has struggled to function properly in recent years. One member recently died, while at least two others have been weakened by health issues.Abbas, who turns 83 this month, has never designated a successor, despite suffering from a number of health issues.Although the meeting is not meant to choose a successor, the composition of the new executive committee could give a strong indication of who the front-runners will be.During a trip to the United States last month, Abbas was briefly hospitalized for what officials downplayed as routine tests. Nonetheless, it drew attention to the looming leadership gap and what is expected to be a fierce power struggle in the future.Usually, the No. 2 in the executive committee succeeds the president when he leaves for any reason. That spot is currently held by Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat. But Erekat recently underwent a lung transplant, which raised questions on whether he would remain on the job.The two front-runners are believed to be Jibril Rajoub, a former security chief and current head of the Palestinian football association, and Mahmoud al-Aloul, a former terror chief in the Palestine Liberation Organization in Lebanon. Both men are on the executive committee.The April meeting will come at a difficult time for the Palestinians, who remain — 25 years after interim peace accords were signed with Israel — nowhere closer to their dream of establishing an independent state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem. Israel captured those territories in 1967, though it withdrew from Gaza in 2005.The last round of peace talks collapsed four years ago, and relations with Israel are poor.Abbas has also clashed with President Donald Trump since the US leader recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December and announced plans to relocate the American Embassy to the city.The Palestinians accused Trump of siding with Israel in the most sensitive issue in the conflict and say that the US can no longer be the sole broker in the negotiations. Trump’s Mideast team, led by his embattled son-in-law Jared Kushner, has been working on a peace proposal for over a year, but has not said when it will be completed or presented.The Palestinians are also grappling with an 11-year-old rift between Abbas’ Fatah party and the rival Islamic terror group Hamas. Hamas seized control of Gaza from Abbas’ forces in 2007, and repeated attempts at reconciliation have failed or stalled.While Hamas lawmakers are eligible to participate in the upcoming Palestinian National Council meeting, the group said it would not do so.Ismail Radwan, a Hamas official, said the group objected to the council meeting “in its current formula.”“Convening it this way violates the national agreements and it boosts the Palestinian split,” he said. He said a new national council should be selected first.The council is a body of the Palestine Liberation Organization, an umbrella group meant to represent Palestinians world-wide. Like the Palestinian Authority, Abbas’ self-rule government in the West Bank, it is dominated by his Fatah movement.The council met in 1998 in Gaza, where in the presence of then-president Bill Clinton, it voted to void parts of the Palestinian national charter that denied Israel’s right to exist. Despite the vote, the covenant has never been formally changed.It also met in 2009 to choose replacements for members who had died or were unable to serve.

Netanyahu issues election threat, muses over his legacy-Asked at DC event how he'd like to be remembered, PM cites his focus on security, liberating the economy; will go to polls if coalition partners don't pledge to see out full term-By Eric Cortellessa-TOI-MAR 7,18

WASHINGTON —  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday he wanted to be remembered for unfettering Israel’s economy during his decade-plus as the country’s leader, and also said he would call early elections if his coalition partners don’t pledge to see out the full term of this parliament through to late 2019.Speaking at the Economic Club in Washington, the prime minister also said he has had no disagreements with US President Donald Trump, and downplayed his famously prickly relationship with former president Barack Obama.Asked what he wanted his legacy to be, Netanyahu said he wished to be remembered as a “Defender of Israel. Liberator of its economy.”The comments came as Netanyahu has become embroiled in a number of corruption scandals that have threatened to topple him from power after four terms and over 12 years. During his time as premier he has pushed free-market policies and overseen a flowering of Israel’s economy, mostly thanks to a burgeoning tech sector.Asked what he liked best about being prime minister, he quipped dryly, “Investigations.”While he has been in Washington for the past several days, a coalition crisis has also threatened to fell his government and necessitate early elections. Though polls have shown him cruising to another term, many analysts predict Netanyahu would face a bruising campaign that would become a referendum on graft suspicions against him.“What I want is to be able to complete the term of this government, which is about November ’19,” he said at the event. “If the coalition agrees, that’s what we’ll do. If not, we’ll go to elections.”Netanyahu said he and Trump always saw eye to eye, though he said he had managed to have positive relationships with Bill Clinton and Obama as well.“Contrary to the general press buzz feed, I actually had very good personal relationships with all of them, but I had disagreements with them,” he said.  “The important thing is we were quite clear about that, we didn’t hide that.”“With President Trump we have fewer disagreements. In fact, we haven’t had any disagreements,” he added, answering questions from David Rubenstein, the American financier and philanthropist best known as the co-founder and co-executive chairman of The Carlyle Group.Netanyahu had a famously volatile relationship with Obama over almost eight years, with the two clashing, sometimes publicly, over how to deal with Iran’s nuclear ambitions and Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.Speaking at the capital’s Renaissance Hotel, just blocks away from the White House where he met with Trump on Monday, the prime minister said his American counterpart asked him for advice before making his controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy there.“He did ask me one time what did I think, whether there would be outbreaks of violence or massive collapse,” Netanyahu explained. “I said, ‘I can’t tell you with 100 percent certainty, but I don’t see it happening. And if it does, we’ll shoulder the risk.’ But it didn’t happen.”The December decision to move the embassy, coming after warnings of serious violence, was met with several weekends of unrest as well as riots outside American missions throughout the Muslim world, though the protests quickly faded.Rubinstein asked Netanyahu whether he now favored a one-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as he has wavered over the last year from his previous position, first voiced in 2009, for the emergence of a Palestinian state.“I want the Palestinians to have all of the power to govern themselves, but not the power to threaten us,” he said. “Israel must have the overriding security responsibility for the area west of the Jordan River. Does that comport with full sovereignty? I don’t know, but that’s what we need to live.”He also touted ties with the Arab world, saying the dynamics of the Middle East were changing in a way that would allow countries to forge ties with Israel even before a peace deal was struck with the Palestinians.“Because of the growing danger of Iran, more and more, I would say virtually all of the Arab countries no longer see Israel as their enemy but their vital ally in confronting militant Islam,” he said. “They used to say that if we make peace with Palestinians, we will break out and normalize relations with the Arab world. I think it’s now the other way around.”He then warned against the risk of relinquishing territory in the modern Middle East, where vacuums risk being filled by extremist forces. If Israel evacuated the West Bank, he said, “either you’ll have Hamas coming in — that’s Iran — or ISIS coming in. That’s a catastrophe.”The longtime Israeli leader said most Israelis would support a theoretical deal with the Palestinians “if they thought it would get them peace.” But then he posed the question of under what conditions that deal would transpire.“A real deal for a real peace? Yes,” he said. “A fake deal for a state that would seek to drive us into the sea, which is not very far away? No.”

EU offers only free trade deal to post-Brexit UK By Eszter Zalan-MAR 7,18-EUOBSERVER

BRUSSELS, Today, 17:56-The EU offered a classic free trade agreement covering limited services and with zero tariffs and no quotas on goods to the UK for the post-Brexit period, in draft guidelines published on Wednesday (7 March), prepared for the next phase of negotiations.The EU's starting position on how the future relationship should look like dismisses British prime minister Theresa May's approach that the bloc should allow access to parts of the single market, and membership in its specialist agencies after Brexit.At its core, the EU is offering an "ambitious" free trade agreement to the UK as the UK wants to pull out of the single market and the customs union as it leaves the EU."It should come as no surprise that the only remaining possible model is a free trade agreement. I hope that it will be ambitious and advanced – and we will do our best, as we did with other partners, such as Canada recently," EU Council chief Donald Tusk said, adding, "but anyway it will only be a trade agreement".The EU-Canada trade deal took seven years.Tusk said the EU and UK should also maintain close cooperation on fighting terrorism and international crime, defence and foreign affairs, research and education.EU officials are arguing that the bloc cannot offer what seems to be the request from London, i.e. a "single market light" or a "customs union light", as one senior official described it."The EU cannot grant the rights of Norway, with the obligations of Canada," Tusk said, who described May's approach as "pick and mix".Norway has access to the single market, and takes most of EU regulation over as part of the European Economic Area. Canada and the EU has singed a free trade agreement that entered into force last year.EU officials however concede that May's speech last Friday on Brexit was "more realistic", but "important contradictions" remain."I fully understand, and of course I respect, Theresa May's political objective to demonstrate at any price that Brexit could be a success and was the right choice," Tusk told reporters in Luxembourg Wednesday. "Sorry, it's not our objective," he added.Officials in Brussels argue that the single market only functions with one set of rules, and with one court overseeing those rules, which the UK ruled out as a post-Brexit scenario.A free trade agreement can align two countries economically tightly close together, but it goes with the two retaining their own rules and regulations.Officials warn that because of diverging rules between the EU and the UK, frictionless trade will not be possible, border checks will have to be installed.The six-page guidelines published Wednesday will be subject to change as member states start debating them ahead of the summit of EU leaders at the end of March when they are expected to be adopted.Based on the guidelines, UK and EU officials are expected to negotiate a political framework agreement on the future relationship that will be attached to the Brexit withdrawal agreement, but actual trade talks will only start once the UK is not an EU member.Unlike the withdrawal agreement, the future trade deal or deals will have to be ratified by all the regional and national parliaments of the EU.The devil in the details -The guidelines say that as in other free trade agreements, rules of origin will have to apply, aims for a continued reciprocal access to fisheries resources, and an agreement on aviation is needed to continue smooth air travel.The EU also wants the UK to respect the 'level playing field', making sure that the UK will not undercut the EU in taxes, or massive state subsidies."The UK is big and is closer to us [EU], it is a competitive economy, therefore we believe this should be required in this particular case," one senior EU official said about demanding a level playing filed between the EU and the UK.The EU would be able to use "remedies" if the UK attempts to unfairly undercut the bloc on competition or taxes.On services, a key issue for the UK with London being a world financial centre, the EU says "host state rules" should apply. May last week proposed a "comprehensive system of mutual recognition" for financial services, which an EU official described as an unclear concept.The draft guidelines also touch on dispute settlement, arguing that if EU legal concepts are used then the European Court of Justice (ECJ) needs to have a role, which is usually a red line for the UK.EU ambassadors had their first discussion of the draft guidelines on Wednesday.To set the mood, the former Polish prime minister did not skip the opportunity to put Brexit into historical context."[…] Because of Brexit we will be drifting apart. In fact, this will be the first FTA in history that loosens economic ties, instead of strengthening them," Tusk said on Wednesday."Our agreement will not make trade between the UK and the EU frictionless or smoother. It will make it more complicated and costly than today, for all of us. This is the essence of Brexit," the EU council head said.

Tax on medical marijuana 'unfortunate,' says P.E.I. grower-[CBC]-YAHOONEWS-March 6, 2018

Some members of the cannabis industry on P.E.I. are concerned with the federal government's plan to charge an excise tax on medical marijuana.The proposal to charge $1 per gram on products sold in Canada was released in the federal budget last week.It includes an exemption for cannabis that contains lower than 0.3 per cent THC, the psychoactive compound in the drug.Tommy Biggar, a co-owner at Island ReLeaf Glass in Summerside, and a medical marijuana user himself, says the plan is disappointing."The thing that bothers me is, nobody else's medication is taxed. So medical patients are going to be taxed the same as recreational [users]."He uses strains of marijuana low in THC so he won't face the excise tax, but he said most medical cannabis contains more than 0.3 per cent THC.Edwin Jewell, president of Canada's Island Garden — the province's only licensed grower — agrees with Biggar."I think it's unfortunate because if you buy any other prescription drug on Prince Edward Island … you're not paying HST on it and you're not paying an excise tax on it either," he said."I think it's unfortunate for Islanders and Canadians as a whole that they'll be well-taxed on any cannabis they buy for sure."

Another snowstorm hits the Northeast, threatens more outages-[The Canadian Press]-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2018

PHILADELPHIA — The second big, blustery storm to hit the Northeast in less than a week brought wet, heavy snow Wednesday to a corner of the country where tens of thousands of people were still waiting for the power to come back on from the previous bout.The nor'easter closed schools, businesses and government offices, grounded thousands of flights and raised fears of another round of fallen trees and electrical outages as it made its way up the East Coast.It also produced "thundersnow," with flashes of lightning and booming thunder from the Philadelphia area to New York City."I don't think I'm ready for this to happen again," Caprice Dantzler, 32, said as she walked through Philadelphia's snowy, rainy Rittenhouse Square. She said many trees that crashed into cars and homes and blocked streets during the last storm had yet to be removed.A mix of snow and light rain fell before daybreak in many areas, then began turning to all snow, making driving treacherous.The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning into Thursday morning from the Philadelphia area through most of New England. Forecasters said areas west of the Interstate 95 corridor could easily get more than a foot of snow, with some places in northwestern New Jersey expected to receive up to 2 feet.More than 2,000 flights across the region — 1,700 in the New York metro area alone — were cancelled , a number expected to climb as conditions deteriorated.The morning commute went smoothly in most areas, as the storm had not yet kicked into high gear. But motorists were urged to avoid travel so crews could treat and clear roads. Pennsylvania and New York banned big rigs from some major highways."I'm not looking forward to another round of this, but it is what it is," Chris Martin said as he prepared to leave his Toms River, New Jersey, home and head to work at an information technology firm in Philadelphia. "All in all, it hasn't been a terrible winter."Martin had already arranged to stay in Philadelphia overnight."If Mother Nature wants to give us one last blast of winter, that's up to her," he said.Heavy, wet snow and gusting winds could take down trees already weakened by last Friday's storm and snap power lines, to the distress of customers who have gone days without power.Utility workers took advantage of milder temperatures and sunshine Tuesday in their scramble to restore electricity around the Northeast. More than 90,000 homes and businesses remained without power Wednesday, mostly in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.Ten people were taken to hospitals with symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning after running a generator inside a home in North White Plains, New York, police said. All were expected to survive.Some areas were bracing for as much as 2 to 3 inches of snow an hour. Gusts of up to 60 mph were forecast on Cape Cod, 45 mph at the Jersey shore and 30 mph around suburban Philadelphia.As of midafternoon, some places in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the New York City area had over 6 inches of snow.Depending on the storm's track, the I-95 corridor — which runs through the Northeast's major urban areas — could see heavy rain, heavy snow or a mix of the two.Transportation departments in Philadelphia and Boston loaded up salt trucks and treated roads a day ahead.Amtrak cancelled some train service, and commuter trains in Philadelphia were put on a weekend schedule.School districts and municipal operations around Pennsylvania and Connecticut closed. The governors of New Jersey and Pennsylvania declared states of emergency.Officials warned homeowners of the danger of heart attacks from shovelling heavy snow.One slight consolation: The storm was not expected to bring coastal flooding like the one last week. Some New England and New Jersey shoreline communities were still dealing with the effects of that storm.___Associated Press writers Anthony Izaguirre in Philadelphia and Bruce Shipkowski, in Toms River, New Jersey, contributed to this story.Kristen De Groot, The Associated Press.

Damascus intensifies Ghouta assault in bid to cut rebel enclave in half-[Reuters]-By Tom Perry and Angus McDowall-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2018

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian government forces bombarded eastern Ghouta anew on Wednesday in an effort to slice the rebel enclave in two, intensifying a campaign to deal the opposition its biggest defeat since 2016.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said pro-Syrian government forces had managed to bring the strip of territory linking the north and south of what remains of rebel-held eastern Ghouta within firing range, effectively bisecting the densely populated region on the outskirts of Damascus.There was no immediate confirmation of this from the rebels or Syrian government.The Syrian government onslaught on eastern Ghouta, which began more than two weeks ago, has become one of the fiercest campaigns of a war now entering its eighth year, with bombardment killing hundreds of people.Live footage broadcast by Syrian state TV from the outskirts of the town of Mesraba earlier on Wednesday showed enormous clouds of smoke rising into the sky. The sounds of explosions and jets could be heard.A state TV correspondent said militant defenses in the town were being struck by "preparatory fire" in advance of a planned infantry assault. "Mesraba is under heavy attack today," said Khalil Aybour, a member of an opposition council in Ghouta.Capturing Mesraba would be a major step towards severing the northern half of Ghouta, including its biggest town Douma, from the southern part. Government forces have seized more than 50 percent of the territory so far.On Wednesday pro-government forces advanced, taking the small town of Beit Sawa to Misraba's south, a Hezbollah-run media unit said. The Observatory said this advance deeper into the center of the enclave enabled them to bring the remaining north-south link within firing range.Civilians have been fleeing frontline areas into Douma and hiding in cellars, with aid workers saying many children had told them they had not seen daylight in 20 days. [L5N1QP5D5] "It's bad in the basement, but it's better than the bombing," Adnan, 30, a Douma resident who has been sheltering below ground with his wife and two-year-old daughter together with 10 other families, told Reuters by telephone.The United Nations says 400,000 people are trapped in the towns and villages of the eastern Ghouta, under government siege for years and already running out of food and medicine before the assault. An aid convoy reached the area this week but government officials had stripped out most medical supplies.The United Nations resident and humanitarian coordinator in Syria. Ali al-Za'tari, asked the government to commit to a ceasefire on Thursday to allow more aid in.AT LEAST 850 CIVILIANS KILLED-Russia, President Bashar al-Assad's most powerful ally, has offered rebels safe passage out with their families and personal weapons. The proposal echoes previous agreements under which insurgents, in the face of military defeat, were permitted to withdraw to opposition-held areas along the Turkish border.The Observatory said that at least 850 civilians have been killed by government bombing and shelling in this offensive, with 45 killed on Wednesday.The Observatory said an extra 700 pro-government militia fighters had arrived at the front as reinforcements to join the operation.The U.N. Security Council called on Wednesday for its Feb. 24 resolution demanding a 30-day ceasefire across Syria to be implemented and it voiced concern about the country's humanitarian plight, the council president said.Netherlands U.N. Ambassador Karel van Oosterom was speaking after the Council was briefed behind closed doors on the situation in Syria at the request of Britain and France.Despite the ceasefire resolution, Moscow and Damascus have not halted the campaign to retake eastern Ghouta, arguing that the fighters they are striking are members of banned terrorist groups unprotected by the truce.Russia's defense ministry said some rebels wanted to accept the proposal to evacuate. So far rebels have dismissed it in public. The military spokesman for one of the main eastern Ghouta rebel groups said rebels would defend the territory and there were no negotiations over a withdrawal."The factions of Ghouta and their fighters and its people are holding onto their land and will defend it," Hamza Birqdar of Jaish al-Islam told Reuters in a text message sent overnight.The opposition says such evacuation agreements amount to a policy of demographic change by which Assad has forcibly displaced those who oppose him.In an interview on state TV, a Syrian army colonel expressed confidence Ghouta would fall quickly, saying the people there would return to the "state's embrace ... very, very, very soon".Russian warplanes have taken part in the eastern Ghouta operation, and the White House has accused Russia of complicity in the killing of civilians there.Defeat in eastern Ghouta would mark the worst setback for the anti-Assad rebellion since the opposition was driven from eastern Aleppo in late 2016 after a similar campaign of siege, bombing, ground assaults and the promise of safe passage out.Moscow and Damascus say the Ghouta campaign is necessary to halt rebel shelling of the capital. The Observatory says such shelling has killed at least 27 people since Feb. 18.Syrian state media have given a higher death toll and said at least five people were injured on Wednesday due to rockets falling on government-held Damascus.A commander in the military alliance fighting in support of Assad said he anticipated rebels would end up cornered in Douma and accept a withdrawal deal.(Additional reporting by Ellen Francis, Laila Bassam and Lisa Barrington in Beirut, Maria Kiselyova in Moscow, Stephanie Nebehay in Geneva and Michelle Nichols at the United Nations; Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by Peter Graff/Mark Heinrich)

UK's May defends Saudi ties as crown prince gets royal welcome in London-[Reuters]-YAHOONEWS-By William James-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2018

LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May defended Britain's links to security ally Saudi Arabia on Wednesday as Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman met Queen Elizabeth for lunch on a high-profile visit that drew protests over Riyadh's human rights record.A fiery exchange in parliament between May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn underlined tension in Britain over Prince Mohammed's trip, which was aimed at building a broader economic partnership between the two countries, but has sparked anger about alleged human rights abuses and the war in Yemen."The link that we have with Saudi Arabia is historic, it is an important one, and it has saved the lives of potentially hundreds of people in this country," May said, pausing her answer briefly as opposition lawmakers cried "Shame!". She was alluding to intelligence-sharing on Islamist militant suspects.The debate took place as Prince Mohammed lunched with the British monarch on the first leg of a trip packed with displays of diplomatic affection designed to help widen long-standing defense ties into a more far-reaching partnership.May later met Prince Mohammed at her Downing Street office, extending a warm diplomatic welcome to the conservative kingdom's heir apparent and agreeing a 65 billion pound ($90.29 billion) trade and investment target.Britain is looking for trading partners as it exits the European Union, and energy powerhouse Saudi Arabia needs to convince skeptical investors about its domestic reforms."This is a significant boost for UK prosperity and a clear demonstration of the strong international confidence in our economy as we prepare to leave the European Union," a spokeswoman from May's office said after the meeting.But demonstrators gathered outside May's office amid a heavy police presence to protest at both countries' role in Yemen, where war has killed around 10,000 people. A Saudi-led coalition intervened militarily in Yemen in 2015 and critics say Riyadh has been using British-supplied weapons in devastating strikes."I don't believe that someone like Mohammed bin Salman should be welcomed in Britain," said Hassan Yassine, a 25-year-old customer service worker from London. "It is definitely not ethical, bearing in mind what is going on in Yemen every single day, every single second, even as we speak."Corbyn said British military advisers were "directing the war" in Yemen. May's spokesman said British personnel had no role in carrying out coalition air strikes, and were not involved in Saudi targeting decisions.STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP-Police said a man was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after an egg was thrown at a police vehicle as bin Salman's motorcade arrived in Downing Street.Wednesday's first official engagement was a trip to Buckingham Palace to see Queen Elizabeth - a rare honor usually reserved for heads of state.The Saudi delegation then met May at her offices to launch a UK-Saudi Strategic Partnership Council.The meeting set out the mutual trade and investment target, which would include direct investment in Britain and new Saudi public procurement with British companies. This would be spread across sectors including finance, education, healthcare, renewable energy and defense, May's office said.Britain is vying to land the stock market listing of state oil firm Saudi Aramco, but no decision is expected this week."We would like the Aramco share option to be issued in the United Kingdom and we will continue to suggest the City would be the best place for it," junior foreign office minister Alistair Burt told parliament.Later this month Prince Mohammed visits the United States, which also wants the lucrative listing, although sources said both countries might miss out.British officials were privately delighted at the decision by Prince Mohammed, 32, to choose Britain as the major Western destination on his first foreign trip since becoming heir to the Saudi throne last year.The British government is keen to develop a two-way trade and investment relationship, eyeing both an expanded market in Saudi Arabia for service sector exports, and attracting Saudi cash to finance domestic projects.For his part, Saudi Arabia's ambitious heir wants to show that "shock" reforms have made his country a better place to invest and a more tolerant society.Photographs posted online showed London taxis displaying advertising graphics welcoming Prince Mohammed, and electronic billboards around the capital promoted pro-Saudi messages with the hashtag #anewsaudiarabia.Business deals are possible with British defense group BAE Systems and European weapons maker MBDA, and initial agreements could be concluded on gas exploration, petrochemicals and other industries, according to British and Saudi sources.ROYAL TREATMENT-The three-day visit will include a second Royal audience - dinner with the Prince Charles and Prince William on Wednesday - and a prestigious visit to May's country residence on Thursday.The prime minister intends to use the private dinner at Chequers, a 16th-century manor house 40 miles (60 km) northwest of London, to further press her concerns over the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, her spokesman said.The Saudi-led coalition is fighting the Iran-allied Houthi movement in Yemen in a campaign to restore its internationally recognized government, generating what the United Nations said in January is the world's worst humanitarian crisis.Demonstrators are protesting against Britain for licensing 4.6 billion pounds of weapons sales to Saudi Arabia since 2015.May said all arms sales were strictly regulated, that Saudi Arabia's involvement in the conflict was backed by the U.N. Security Council and her government supported it."The prime minister and crown prince agreed on the importance of full and unfettered humanitarian and commercial access, including through the ports, and that a political solution was ultimately the only way to end the conflict and humanitarian suffering in Yemen," the statement from May's office said.(additional reporting by Hesham Hajali editing by Mark Heinrich)

Britain says former Russian spy poisoned with nerve agent-[Reuters]-By Toby Melville-YAHOONEWS-March 7, 2018

SALISBURY, England (Reuters) - A nerve agent was used to deliberately poison a former Russian double agent and his daughter, Britain's top counter-terrorism officer said on Wednesday, in a case that threatens to further damage London's ties with Moscow.Sergei Skripal, once a colonel in Russia's GRU military intelligence service, and his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia, were found slumped unconscious on a bench outside a shopping center in the southern English city of Salisbury on Sunday afternoon.Both remain critically ill and a police officer who attended the scene is also in a serious condition in hospital."This is being treated as a major incident involving attempted murder by administration of a nerve agent," London Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley told reporters. "I can also confirm that we believe the two people originally who became unwell were targeted specifically."Rowley said government scientists had identified the specific nerve agent but he would not say what it was because it was part of the investigation. He also declined to give any details about how it was administered to Skripal, 66, and his daughter.England's chief medical officer said the incident posed a low risk to the wider public but anyone feeling unwell was advised to seek medical advice.While Rowley would not say any more about the investigation, a U.S. security source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the main line of police inquiry was that Russians may have used the substance against Skripal in revenge for his treachery.Skripal betrayed dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence before his arrest by Russian authorities in 2004.He was sentenced to 13 years in prison in 2006 after a secret trial and in 2010 was given refuge in Britain after being exchanged for Russian spies caught in the West as part of a Cold War-style spy swap at Vienna airport.On Tuesday, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said if Moscow were behind the incident then Britain could look again at sanctions and take other measures to punish Russia, which he cast as a "malign and disruptive" state.Russia denied any involvement, scolded Johnson for "wild" comments and said anti-Russian hysteria was being whipped up intentionally to damage relations with London."It's very hard not to assess this (speculation) as provocative black PR designed to complicate relations between our two countries," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters in Moscow on Wednesday."NEED TO DETER RUSSIA"Malcolm Sperrin, a professor at the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, said nerve agents could cause heart failure, respiratory arrest, twitching or spasms."I’m not aware of a nerve agent having been used in this way previously," he said.Britain has specifically drawn parallels with the 2006 murder of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko who was killed with the radioactive polonium-210 in London.A previous British inquiry said Russian President Vladimir Putin probably approved the murder of Litvinenko, who died after drinking green tea laced with the rare and very potent radioactive isotope at London's Millennium Hotel.Russia denied involvement in the death of Litvinenko, which the British inquiry said had been hatched by the Federal Security Service (FSB), main successor to the Soviet-era KGB.Litvinenko's murder sent Britain's ties with Russia to what was then a post-Cold War low. Relations suffered further from Russia's annexation of Crimea and its military backing for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.Former British defense minister Michael Fallon called for a stronger response if it turned out that Russia had been involved in the Skripal affair."We’ve got to respond more effectively than we did last time over Litvinenko. Our response then clearly wasn’t strong enough," Fallon told Reuters. "We need to deter Russia from believing they can get away with attacks like this on our streets if it’s proved."The British capital has been dubbed "Londongrad" due to the large quantities of Russian money which have poured in since the 1991 fall of the Soviet Union. It is the Western city of choice for many oligarchs from the former Soviet Union.BIG OPERATION-Rowley said hundreds of detectives were now working on the Skripal case to build up a timeline of his movements over the last few days.Officers have sealed off the area of Salisbury where Skripal was found as well as the Zizzi pizza restaurant where they dined and the Bishop's Mill pub where they had a drink. They also set up cordons near Solstice Park, a business park, in the nearby town of Amesbury.Skripal's son, Alexander, died last year aged 43. British media have said his death occurred during a visit to St Petersburg, Putin's home town. Skripal's wife Liudmila died of cancer in 2012.Both Alexander and Liudmila Skripal are buried at the London Road Cemetery in Salisbury.The Skripal case has come shortly before Russia's presidential election on March 18, which Putin is expected to win comfortably, extending his rule by a further six years. The former KGB officer has been president since 2000.(Additonal reporting by Estelle Shirbon and Kate Kelland, Writing by Guy Faulconbridge and Michael Holden; Editing by Gareth Jones)
