2…………> Jihad Money: Al-Awlaki

Ibrahim Zubair Mohammad, 38; Asif Ahmed Salim, 38; and Sultan Room Salim, 43, pleaded guilty this week to one count of concealment of financing of terrorism, for their roles in concealing the provision of thousands of dollars to Anwar Al-Awlaki in an effort to support violent jihad against U.S. military personnel in Iraq, Afghanistan and throughout the world.

The three defendants who pleaded guilty this week acted to conceal supplying funds to Anwar Al-Awlaki in 2009. Al-Awlaki, a key leader of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, advocated violence against the United States and supported and was involved in attempted terrorist attacks against civilians, according to court documents.



3…………> Let’s Investigate, Not Fight: Russia

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov suggested that the suspected chemical attack in Syria was staged with the help of an unspecified foreign intelligence agency, as inspectors will begin an investigation of the alleged chemical attack site in Douma

“Intelligence agencies of a state that is now striving to spearhead a Russophobic campaign were involved in that fabrication,” he said.

President Trump threatened cruise missiles strikes on Syria after a suspected gas attack on a rebel-held town which a Syrian medical relief group said killed at least 60 people, and a Russian envoy voiced fears of a wider conflict between Washington and Moscow.

“God forbid anything adventurous will be done in Syria following the Libyan and Iraqi experience,” Mr Lavrov said to reporters.

Several thousand people from Gaza have gathered along the Israel border to protest for the right to return to the homes and lands their families lost in the 1948 war. Recent rallies have resulted in bloodshed.

Protesters burned tires at the border fence east of Jabalia just north of Gaza City. Palestinians threw stones at Israeli border guards and nine were reported injured as Israeli soldiers fired at them, according to the Gaza health ministry which said a total of 112 Palestinians had been treated for injuries during the protests.

One of the protesters, Sumaya Abu Awad, attended with her three daughters and son: “I am from the village of Hiribya and it is my right to return to it,” she told the news agency AFP. “I am not afraid of death because there is no life in Gaza.”
