Headline: PM heading to Rome to oppose French initiative
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will fly to Rome on Sunday to try to fend off pressure from the United States and Europe over his policies and opposition to a French-led effort to forge peace with the Palestinians. Beginning three days of intense diplomacy, Netanyahu will meet US Secretary of State John Kerry and the European Union's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, in the Italian capital, followed by talks with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Jerusalem. One of Netanyahu's immediate concerns is a forthcoming report from the Middle East Quartet, a mediation group made up of the United States, EU, United Nations and Russia, that is expected to use unusually tough language in criticising Israel and blaming it for the current impasse in the peace negotiations.

Do not hold Your peace, And do not be still, O God! 2 For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; And those who hate You have lifted up their head. 3 They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, And consulted together against Your sheltered ones. 4 They have said, “Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation, That the name of Israel may be remembered no more.” (Psalm 83)
Headline: Jordan police, protesters injured in violent clashes over jobs
Jordanian police clashed with young job-seeking demonstrators south of the capital on Thursday, resulting in injuries on both sides, officials and witnesses said. Police said three of its forces were “shot and wounded during a raid on a group of outlaws in the Dhiban region” of Madaba, 70 kilometers (40 miles) from Amman. Witnesses said the confrontation broke out after police intervened to forcibly dismantle a tent being used for a sit-in by youths demanding jobs, wounding an unspecified number of demonstrators. Police said it used tear gas and “adequate force” to disperse assailants who sealed off roads and hurled stones and fireworks at the local police station. Twenty-two arrests were made. “Some of the trouble-makers and demonstrators used automatic weapons to fire directly” at police before security forces restored order, they said. The demonstrators, on their Facebook page, said calm was restored after an accord was struck with government representatives, but they gave no details.

Headline: Nasrallah: As long as Iran has money, we'll have money
Headline: Hezbollah vows to increase presence in Syria’s Aleppo
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah acknowledged on Friday that his group had lost fighters in Syria, but vowed to continue to be involved in the war there. Speaking in remarks broadcast on the Shiite group's Al-Manar television and quoted by AFP, Nasrallah said that the offensive on the city of Aleppo was the "greatest battle" in Syria. He stressed his group would "increase our presence in Aleppo... because the real, strategic, greatest battle is in Aleppo and the surrounding area." Nasrallah also announced that 26 Hezbollah fighters had been killed in the offensive this month, a rare admission of casualties for the group. He spoke at a commemoration event for Mustafa Badr al-Din, the Hezbollah commander killed in an explosion on May 12 near Damascus international airport. Hezbollah has in the past blamed the elimination of its leaders on Israel, but in the case of Badr al-Din, it said that “Islamist extremists” were behind his killing, without naming any particular group. Nasrallah also admitted his group’s close connections with Iran, denying reports that Hezbollah was low on funds due to sanctions that have been imposed on it by the United States and others. "We say openly that our funds come directly from Iran. As long as Iran has money, so will Hezbollah have money,” he declared, according to a report on Army Radio.

Syria Headline: Syria opposition accuses Russia of using incendiary bombs in Syria
The Syrian opposition High Negotiations Committee (HNC) called on United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday to launch an investigation into its accusations that Russia has repeatedly used air-delivered incendiary weapons in Syria. Russia deployed warplanes to Syria last year to support President Bashar al-Assad against rebels seeking to end his rule. A crackdown by Assad on pro-democracy protesters five years ago sparked a civil war and Islamic State militants have used the chaos to seize territory in Syria and Iraq. "Russian air forces have repeatedly deployed incendiary weapons and cluster munitions to kill, main and terrorise Syrian civilians, including in at least 10 documented incidents," Riad Hijab, coordinator of the opposition HNC, wrote to Ban. "They have violated the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons and breached international humanitarian law," he wrote. Hijab alleged that "thermite, which ignites while falling, has been likened to 'mini nuclear bombs' and was deployed repeatedly by Russian forces in residential areas." He also accused Russian forces of using cluster munitions.

Syria Headline: US-backed Forces Clash With IS inside Syria’s Manbij
U.S.-backed Syrian forces entered a Syrian town near the Turkish border that has been held by Islamic State (IS) militants for more than two years, after a three-week-long battle with the terror group around the town. Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a coalition of Kurdish and Arab forces, advanced towards Manbij on Thursday with aerial support from the U.S.-led coalition, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. “Clashes are taking place on the southern side of the city,” Rami Abdulrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory told VOA via phone from Britain. “Two things are preventing the SDF to take full control of the city — civilians who are being used by Daesh (IS) and booby traps that the group has planted all over the city,” he said.

Syria Headline: Al Qaeda and allies gain more ground in Aleppo province
In mid-June, the Jaysh al Fateh (“Army of Conquest”) alliance began a new offensive targeting three villages south of the city of Aleppo: Khalsa, Bernah, and Zeitan. The jihadist-led coalition quickly claimed success. Since the beginning of June, Jaysh al Fateh’s has widened its grip on the territory surrounding Khan Tuman, which was captured from Bashar al Assad’s regime and Iranian-backed forces in May. A push in early June expanded Jaysh al Fateh’s operating radius around Khan Tuman. This allowed its fighters to overrun the aforementioned villages later in the month. The two most powerful groups in Jaysh al Fateh are Al Nusrah Front, which is al Qaeda’s official branch in Syria, and Ahrar al Sham, which models itself after the Taliban and has its own links to al Qaeda. The alliance includes several other fighting groups as well. Jaysh al Fateh’s enemies in the area include Iranian-backed Shiite militiamen, members of the Syrian Arab Army, and Hezbollah’s jihadists. The Syrian-Iranian axis suffered significant casualties during the clashes. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that 24 members of the Syrian military and allied militias were killed during the first day of fighting. That figure rose to 86 dead, including 25 Hezbollah fighters, according to SOHR. Casualty figures are often impossible to verify, especially in a chaotic war zone such as Syria. But it appears that Bashar al Assad’s loyalists and allies suffered serious blows. Dozens of Jaysh al Fateh’s fighters were reportedly killed as well.

Iraqi Headline: Iraqi forces capture district in province north of capital
Makhool, a district in the province of Salah Al-Din which lies north of Baghdad, has been recaptured from ISIS militants on Friday, the Iraqi government said in a statement. “The Iraqi forces raised an Iraqi flag at the center of the district after making the enemy incur human and equipment losses,” the statement read. Iraqi security forces backed by volunteer forces were able to claim control over Makhool’s surrounding mountains more than four months ago after heavy clashes with ISIS. Salah al-Din is on the border with Nineveh province where Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul is located. Mosul fell under ISIS control since June 2014. Iraqi forces are currently trying to head to Qayyarah Airfield West, a former Iraqi air force base in Nineveh, before embarking a full-fledged operation to liberate Mosul.

Headline: Erdogan threatens to hold EU bid referendum unless Turkey gets visa-free travel
Turkey has once again warned it will hold a referendum on whether to press on for EU accession, unless there is progress in negotiations on vise-free travel with the bloc. "We [get] our power from the nation. If the EU negotiation process [does not move forward], as President Erdogan tried to say, then we may ask the public whether we should continue negotiations," Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told a news conference in Ankara on Thursday. "But we believe that common sense will dominate the meetings," Cavusoglu added. "We want to continue our way with the EU, especially in the visa-free travel deal, we want something that is our right." On Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened the EU, noting that Britain's Brexit vote could prompt Turkey to hold a referendum on the accession bid. The Turkish president said Ankara has been waiting since 1963 to join the Union, despite the fact it didn’t exist at the time.

Headline: First US Airstrikes Hit Afghan Taliban
Fierce fighting has erupted in eastern Afghanistan after militants linked to Islamic State staged coordinated overnight attacks on Afghan security forces’ outposts and civilian areas, officials said Friday. The clashes in the district of Kot in Nangahar province continued into the morning, leaving at least 30 IS militants dead and several others wounded, provincial government spokesman Attahullah Khogyani told VOA. He confirmed three civilians, including two women, were also killed while 12 more were wounded. Residents in the area say Afghan forces have also suffered casualties but officials have not yet responded to these claims. The IS attack in Kot is the first major operation the militant outfit has undertaken outside neighboring Achin district, which is believed to have turned into a main regional base for the Middle Eastern terrorist organization.

Headline: Libyan forces clash with militants in Sirte, 14 dead: official
Libyan forces fighting ISIS in its stronghold of Sirte said Friday that four of their troops and 10 militants were killed in heavy clashes around the port area as militants tried to flee the city under siege. Brigades from the nearby city of Misrata, allied with the country's U.N.-backed government of national unity, launched a campaign to retake Sirte last month. They rapidly recaptured ground west of the coastal city, but their advance slowed as they closed in on its center. ISIS militants, who exploited Libya's security chaos to seize Sirte last year, have been fighting hard to defend territory they still control in the residential center. "Brigades of Bonyan Marsous intercepted a group of ISIS militants Friday attempting to escape from the coastal side of the city," said Rida Issa, a spokesman with the government's operations room. "The clashes were massive and have resulted in four troops killed and 24 wounded. After the clashes ended, our forces found about 10 bodies of militants."

Islamic State has expressed its delight for the expected negative economic impact on the United Kingdom and the European Union following the British referendum - and called for attacks in Berlin and Brussels to “paralyse” Europe. A jihadi Telegram - an encrypted messaging service popular with militants - praised the economic chaos that came in the wake of the EU Referendum and urged followers to strike at the heart of mainland Europe, according to terror threat monitor Site. UK military chiefs have warned there is a "serious and direct threat to holiday resorts across Europe'"from groups like ISIS. The Foreign Office (FCO) says "there is considered to be a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria".

Headline: Spain stakes claim on Gibraltar following Brexit vote
Spain is to press for joint sovereignty of Gibraltar with the UK following Britain's decision to leave the European Union. Acting foreign minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo stated that he hoped "the Spanish flag on the Rock" was now "much closer" to reality. Gibraltar's cabinet was holding a crisis meeting Friday to discuss the implications of the vote. The British territory of 32,000, on a peninsula attached to the south coast of Spain, voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU, with 95.9 percent in favor of "remain." Madrid has threatened to close its border with Gibraltar once the UK leaves the EU, something it has been prevented from doing by European rulers. Garcia-Margallo said in a radio interview that he believed the Brexit vote could prove decisive for Spain's claim to Gibraltar. Spain ceded the peninsula to Britain in 1713 in the Treaty of Ultrecht.

And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.

The Danish People's Party (DPP) and the Red-Green Alliance (RGA) have renewed the demand for a vote on the Scandinavian nation’s membership of the Euro-bloc after the Leave camp’s success. Leader of DPP, Kristian Thulesen Dahl, said Brussels had made its bed by underestimating the looming scepticism in Europe and now the Danish people must be given a chance to follow Britain out of the EU. The right-wing politician said: “This shows that once against the EU completely underestimates people’s scepticism. The EU has made its bed. “I also believe Danes should of course have a referendum on whether we want to follow Britain or stay in the EU.” Mr Dalh’s call for a Danish referendum was echoed by the RGA, as its spokeswoman Pernille Skipper said she hoped the British people’s decision to leave would trigger a reform of the EU. She said: “I hope Danish politicians take [Brexit] as a wake-up call. There is enormous scepticism among the population. “Let us now have a referendum here as well.” Earlier this month a survey found previously Brussels-loyal Danes were now increasingly ready for a referendum on their membership as turmoil continues to plague the 28-strong bloc.

Headline: Dow plunges 600+ points following historic Brexit vote
Investor panic over the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union has been felt across the Atlantic as well. The Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq indices were down by more than three percent by the closing bell. The Down Jones had plummeted 610.25 points, or 3.39 percent, by the time markets closed at 4 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq saw similar nosedives of 3.6 and 4.12 percent respectively. Markets opened Friday morning to a nearly instantaneous 2 percent drop in US stocks after United Kingdom became the country in history to withdraw from the European Union in history. "Markets plummeted in early European trading, with the shares of major UK banks and house builders down 30% at one point. The 10-year UK gilt was yielding 1.06% and the British Pound fell to $1.33. But after the initial panic, the situation has stabilized with more moderate losses. In fact the FTSE 100 index will end up on the week," Boom Bust host Edward Harrison said. Bloomberg estimates that traders bet a total of $59 billion against the pound in anticipation of a Brexit. Those traders are poised to make a profit, since the currency traded at its lowest since 1985 following the referendum. Investors are dumping riskier assets to buy gold, dollars and US Treasury bonds. The yield on the American 10-year bond dropped its lowest level since 2012.

Headline: Heroin use at 20-year high in U.S. drug 'epidemic', U.N. says
Headline: Officials declare health emergency in Connecticut city after string of overdoses
A heroin "epidemic" is gripping the United States, where cheap supply has helped push the number of users to a 20-year high, increasing drug-related deaths, the United Nations said on Thursday. According to the U.N.'s World Drug Report 2016, the number of heroin users in the United States reached around one million in 2014, almost three times as many as in 2003. Heroin-related deaths there have increased five-fold since 2000. "There is really a huge epidemic (of) heroin in the U.S.," said Angela Me, the chief researcher for the report which was released on Thursday. "It is the highest definitely in the last 20 years," Me said, adding that the trend was continuing. The rise could be linked to U.S. legislation introduced in recent years which makes it harder to abuse prescription opioids such as oxicodone, a powerful painkiller that can have similar effects to heroin, Me said. The law meant the texture of the pills was changed to make it more difficult to crush them and inject them into the blood stream, Me said. "This has caused a partial shift from the misuse of these prescription opioids to heroin."

Headline: Worst tornado to hit China province in 50 years
A violent storm in eastern China that packed gale-force winds and hail killed 98 people and injured hundreds as it flattened power lines, overturned cars and ripped roofs off houses in Jiangsu province. The storm, which included a tornado, struck mid-afternoon on Thursday near Yancheng city, a few hours' drive north of China's commercial capital Shanghai, the Ministry of Civil Affairs said. Winds reached 125 kph (78 mph) and battered several townships in Funing county, the official Xinhua news agency said. The death toll stood at 98, with 800 people injured, state-run China National Radio said on its website on Friday. Pictures online showed injured people lying amid destroyed houses, overturned cars and split tree trunks. One showed a man who had apparently tried to shield a woman from falling debris; both were dead in a pile of rubble. The worst of the storm seemed to have hit only a limited area, however. "It looks like the tornado only hit very specific places," said a Reuters reporter at the site. "Even nearby villages were fine."
