Meanwhile, the IDF late Sunday night launched a wide series of air strikes against Hamas targets in an apparent turning up of the heat for a rocket launched from the Gaza Strip Sunday afternoon, which had exploded in the southern Israeli community of Sderot between two homes near the local train station. Earlier Sunday, the IDF took a limited counterstrike, hitting only two Hamas targets in the northern Gaza Strip - one with air power and one additional terror infrastructure site by tank fire. Then, Monday evening the IDF attacked a Syrian missile launch site connected with the Assad regime after a mortar fell on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights. The IDF said it views the Syrian regime as responsible for any attacks emanating from its territory and said it would not tolerate any violations of Israeli sovereignty or danger to Israeli citizens, even as it appeared that the shelling was a misfire from internal battles within Syria in its ongoing civil war.

Headline: Hamas threatens to abuse Israeli hostages, renew fighting
The Hamas terror group threatened Thursday to maltreat Israeli hostages being held in the Strip, saying it would offer them the same conditions its own members are given in the Jewish state’s jails. Hamas is holding the remains of soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, who were killed in the 2014 Gaza war, as well as 29-year-old Avraham Mengistu and Juma Ibrahim Abu Anima, both of whom entered the Strip in 2014 and have not been heard from since. Speaking at a massive rally in Rafah in the southern Strip, Abu Obieda, spokesperson for Hamas’s military branch the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, accused Israel of “racist” and “repressive” measures for Hamas prisoners. Speaking hours after a Gazan rocket struck the Israeli border town of Sderot, Abu Obeuda also threatened that hostilities could renew, after two years of relative calm.

Headline: Israel Harshly Responds to Turkey: Think Twice Before Criticizing Military Actions of Others
Israel responded harshly to the statements of condemnation issued on Monday by Turkey regarding operations carried out overnight by the Israel Air Force in Gaza in response to the firing of a Qassam rocket at the Israeli border town of Sderot. "Turkey would do well to think twice before criticizing military operations of other countries," Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said. Nahshon added that "the normalization of our relations with Turkey does not mean that we will remain silent in the face of its baseless condemnations. Israel will continue to defend its civilians from all rocket fire on our territory, in accordance with international law and our conscience. Turkey should think twice before criticizing the military actions of others." Speaking Monday evening, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said normalization of relations with Israel would never prevent Turkey from expressing its position on the Palestinian issue.

Headline: Yemen ready to open bases to Russia to fight terrorism: Ex-President Saleh
Deadly clashes raged Monday between Yemeni government forces battling to secure an entrance to the besieged city of Taiz and Shiite Huthi rebels surrounding it, military sources said. Backed by a Saudi-led Arab coalition, Yemeni troops launched an offensive last week to break the rebel siege on Yemen's flash-point third city, in the country's southwest. The heaviest fighting Monday was near its western entrance where airstrikes by the Arab coalition and ground battles left 11 dead among Huthi rebels and their allies, loyalist military sources said. An air raid killed two more rebels at the northern entrance to Taiz, which has been encircled for more than year, the sources said. AFP could not confirm the toll from independent sources and the Iran-backed rebels rarely acknowledge their losses. "The blockade of Taiz is almost broken after the retaking of Jabal al-Dhabab mountain" by loyalist forces, Colonel Abdulaziz al-Majidi, a spokesman of pro-government forces in the area, told AFP. "The road is now open between the west of Taiz and southern provinces," he said, adding however that he was referring to a "rugged" route and not the main road.

Syria Headline: Kurdish-backed Jarabulus council warns Turkey of supporting ISIS north Syria
Hundreds of Syrian rebels are preparing to launch an operation to capture a town held by Islamic State at the border with Turkey, a senior Syrian rebel said on Sunday, a move that would frustrate Kurdish hopes to expand further in that area. The rebels, Turkey-backed groups fighting under the banner of the Free Syrian Army, are expected to assault Jarablus from inside Turkey in the next few days, said the rebel official, who is familiar with the plans but declined to be identified. "The factions are gathering in an area near the border (inside Turkey)," the rebel said. Turkey, an important supporter of the FSA groups, is worried that Kurds are using the SDF's westwards expansion against IS to extend their influence across northern Syria. The SDF already holds the eastern bank of the Euphrates opposite Jarablus. On Saturday Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that Ankara would play a more active role in addressing the conflict in Syria in the coming six months to stop it being torn along ethnic lines.

Thousands of people have been fleeing ISIS rule in Hawijah, which lies about 220 kilometres (140 miles) north of Baghdad, in recent weeks. “Six civilians were killed and five wounded by an IED (improvised explosive device),” a colonel in the Kurdish peshmerga forces told AFP. “It happened during an attempt by families to flee areas southeast of Kirkuk and reach peshmerga positions,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Among them were women and children,” he added. Other local officials confirmed the information. Much of the area is littered by bombs and booby traps rigged by ISIS to prevent movements by Iraqi security forces.

The Kurdish YPG militia launched a major assault on Monday to seize the last government-controlled parts of the northeastern Syrian city of Hasaka after calling on pro-government militias to surrender, Kurdish forces and residents said. They said Kurdish forces began the offensive after midnight to take the southeastern district of Nashwa, close to where a security compound is located near the governor’s office close to the heart of the city. The powerful YPG militia had earlier captured Ghwairan, the only major Arab neighborhood still in government hands. The fighting this week in Hasaka, which is divided into zones of Kurdish and Syrian government control, marks the most violent confrontation between the Kurdish YPG militia and Damascus in more than five years of civil war.

Headline: 'IS child bomber' kills at least 51 at Turkey wedding
A suicide bomber as young as 12 killed at least 51 people at a wedding in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Sunday, pointing the finger at the Islamic State group. Erdogan said Saturday's blast in Gaziantep near the Syria border "was the result of a suicide bomber aged between 12 and 14 who either detonated (the bomb) or others detonated it." The explosion was the latest attack to rock the key NATO member in a horrific year that has seen strikes blamed on Kurdish and Islamist militants as well as a bloody July 15 botched coup. The president said the Islamic State group was the "likely perpetrator" of the bomb attack, the deadliest in 2016, that targeted a celebration attended by many Kurds. The remains of a suicide vest were found at the scene, the chief prosecutor's office said according to broadcaster CNN-Turk. Gulser Ates, one of scores wounded in the attack, told Hurriyet the attack took place as the party was breaking up in the mainly Kurdish neighbourhood.

Headline: Russia presses for access to strategic Incirlik air base in Turkey
Russia has approached Turkey to request use of the U.S.-built Incirlik air base. The NATO base, which is home to at least 50 U.S. B-61 nuclear warheads, is 65 miles from the Syrian border and would enable the Russian air force to engage in “constant bombing” of Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) and other anti-Assad forces, a Russian official said, according to a report by the UK’s Times newspaper. “It just remains to come to an agreement with (President Recep Tayyip) Erdogan that we get the NATO base Incirlik as [our] primary air base,” Sen. Igor Morozov, a member of the Russian upper house’s committee on international affairs, said. “You’ll see, the next base will be Incirlik,” he told Izvestia after the Kremlin revealed last week that its bombers had started flying out of Iran to launch attacks on Syria. “This will be one more victory for Putin.” Analysts say Turkey “has drifted towards Russia” in the wake of the failed coup on July 15. Erdogan has even suggested that the United States played a hand in the failed attempt to overthrow his government and is demanding the U.S. extradite cleric Fethullah Gulen, who has been alleged to have been the mastermind of the coup.

Iran said Monday that Russian raids on Syria from one of its airbases had ended for now, shortly after accusing Moscow of “showing off” when it revealed the bombing missions. “It was a specific, authorized mission and it’s over for now. They conducted it and they are gone now,” foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi told reporters in Tehran. He left open the possibility of future Russian combat flights from Iran, saying it would depend on “the situation in the region, and according to our permission.” That came a few hours after Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan made a rare public criticism of Russia for revealing that its warplanes were using Iran’s Hamedan airbase to attack insurgents in Syria. “Naturally, the Russians are keen to show that they are a superpower and an influential country and that they are active in security issues in the region and the world,” Dehghan told Iran’s Channel 2 television.

Headline: Lack of Coordination Resulted in Khanabad's Fall: Soldiers (Khanabad falls to Taliban)
The lack of coordination between security forces is the main reason why Khanabad district fell to the Taliban, said soldiers fighting insurgents on the Kunduz frontline. According to them, they have been fighting Taliban for days – with no coordination among themselves. The Taliban took control of Khanabad early Saturday morning, however by Saturday evening security forces had retaken the district. TOLOnews' Nematullah Ahmadi, the first journalist to access Khanabad after it was retaken by security forces has reported that soldiers had fought insurgents for days without any food. These soldiers have blasted government for not providing them with enough ammunition and food and have said the lack of coordination among the different security branches resulted in the fall of the district, and other parts of the province, to the Taliban. Security forces retook control of Khanabad district on Saturday - after nine hours of heavy fighting. According to security forces, insurgents have burned down army bases and government buildings in the district. Atiqullah, a soldier, said: "It has been three days of fighting for us – on empty stomachs. We do not have food and our supply route has been cut off by the Taliban." Taliban have in the past few days closed off the Kabul-Badakhshan highway and have created their own check points, where they search passengers traveling to Mazar or Badakhshan, said soldiers. Despite having retaken control of Khanabad, the Afghan National Army is still embroiled in heavy clashes against the Taliban in Khanabad, Ali Abad and Qala-e-Zal districts.

Positions captured on Sunday after morning airstrikes include the al-Ribatt mosque, the Sahara Bank and the former Internal Security Agency, which was used as a morality prison by the Islamic State, also identified as Daesh, ISIS and ISIL.

Headline: Sunni extremists infiltrating US with help from South American smugglers, officials warn
Sunni extremists are infiltrating the United States with the help of alien smugglers in South America and are crossing U.S. borders with ease, according to a U.S. South Command intelligence report. The Command’s J-2 intelligence directorate reported recently in internal channels that “special interest aliens” are working with a known alien smuggling network in Latin America to reach the United States. The smuggling network was not identified. Army Col. Lisa A. Garcia, a Southcom spokeswoman, did not address the intelligence report directly but said Sunni terrorist infiltration is a security concern. “Networks that specialize in smuggling individuals from regions of terrorist concern, mainly from the Afghanistan-Pakistan region, the Middle East, and East Africa, are indeed a concern for Southcom and other interagency security partners who support our country’s national security,” Garcia told the Washington Free Beacon. “There are major hubs that serve as entry points into the region for migrants from those areas of concern attempting to enter the U.S. along our border with Mexico,” she said.

North Korea threatened Monday to turn Seoul and Washington into “a heap of ashes through a Korean-style pre-emptive nuclear strike” if they showed any signs of aggression toward the North’s territory during their annual military drills. South Korea and the U.S. began the drills despite the threats. Pyongyang’s fiery rhetoric isn’t unusual, but the latest warning comes at a time of more tension following the defection of a senior North Korean diplomat and a U.S. plan to place a defense missile system in South Korea. The North's "first-strike" units are read to mount retaliatory attacks on South Korean and U.S. forces involved in the drills, according to the statement, carried by Pyongyang's state media. South Korea expressed “strong” regret over Pyongyang’s warning, saying the drills with the U.S. are purely defensive in nature. Seoul and Washington have repeatedly said they have no intentions of invading Pyongyang.

For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due”(Romans) "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them." ~ Leviticus 20:13 “ But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.” (2 Peter 2:1-3)
Headline: No Scientific Evidence That People Are Born Gay or Transgender, Johns Hopkins Researchers Say
Distinguished scholars at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland released a new 143-page report on Monday that argues that there is not enough definitive scientific evidence available to suggest that gay, lesbian and transgender individuals are born with a certain sexual orientation or gender identity. In the three-part report published by The New Atlantis, Lawrence Mayer, a scholar-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University's psychiatry department and a professor of statistics and biostatistics at Arizona State University, and Paul McHugh, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Johns Hopkins, take on prevailing claims that sexual orientation and gender dysphoria are caused by natural traits. Additionally, the scholars challenge the claim that discrimination and social stigma is the sole reason why those with same-sex attractions or transgender identity suffer higher rates of mental health problems. In the first part, the report argues that there is insufficient evidence to claim that heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual attractions are an innate trait that people are born with. The report goes into detail about past epidemiological studies that have found a modest association between genetic factors and sexual orientation and behaviors. However, the report states that such studies have not been able to provide significant evidence "pointing to particular genes." The report also looks at other other evidence of hypothesized biological causes, such as prenatal development and hormones but finds that evidence is also limited.
