Mass grave of Yazidis in Iraq tells horror story

Mass grave of Yazidis in IraqA few thousand people once lived in this tiny Iraqi village 270 miles north of Baghdad. Today, it is a ghost town with few signs of life — and a mass grave nearby where members of the Yazidi sect were slaughtered by Islamic State militants.

It is one of 11 mass graves discovered in northern Iraq by Kurdish residents who fear other undiscovered burial sites exist  in neighboring Syria. Those graves have yet to be unearthed because their locations are under Islamic State control.

Netanyahu denounces EU move to label settlement products

NrtanyahuRelations between the European Union and Israel took a dive on Wednesday after Israel derided a decision by the 28-nation bloc to specially label products made in Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

Israel lacks evidence against extremists in arson attack

Israel lacks evidence in arson attackIsrael is still lacking evidence to charge those responsible for a deadly arson attack on a Palestinian family this summer, Israeli media reported the country's defense minister as saying Monday, in a case that Palestinians say helped fuel the past weeks of bloodshed.

In July, assailants, believed to be Jewish extremists, lobbed a firebomb into the Dawabsheh family's home in the West Bank village of Duma, where four family members were asleep. Ali Dawabsheh, a toddler, was burned to death, while his mother and father later died of their wounds. His 4-year-old brother Ahmad is being treated in an Israeli hospital.


Obama and Netanyahu strike hawkish tone on US military aid to Israel

Obama and NetanyahuBarack Obama and Binyamin Netanyahu met for the first time in a year on Monday, pledging to spend much of their meeting discussing ways to expand US military aid to Israel.

Putting aside recent disagreements over Iran and Palestine, the US president and the Israeli prime minister struck a hawkish tone during opening remarks in the oval office.

“Israel has shouldered a tremendous defence burden over the years and we have done it with the generous assistance of the United States of America,” said Netanyahu, who is thought to be pushing for an existing 10-year deal struck by George W Bush that is worth a total of $30bn to be replaced by a substantially more generous one once it expires.
