Syria Headline: Rebel Forces Retake IS-Held Town
Islamic State militants on Wednesday pushed back U.S.-trained Syrian rebels from the outskirts of a town on the Iraqi border, dealing a setback to a budding offensive that aims to sever the militants' transit link between the two countries, a rebel spokesman said. The Islamic State-linked Aamaq news agency said IS militants repelled the New Syrian Army from an air base which the rebels had briefly captured earlier in the day. IS said it seized 15 hostages and ammunition, and was still advancing against the rebels. Earlier Wednesday, the Pentagon-trained force entered the Hamdan air base -- northwest of the border town of Boukamal -- following intense clashes, rebel spokesman Mozahem al-Saloum said. He said airborne fighters were dropped from coalition helicopters on Boukamal's southern edge, helping the fighters advance. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which relies on local activists, confirmed the account.

Iraq Headline: Iraqi forces say press towards key air base south of Mosul
Iraq's military said it advanced through northern villages held by ISIS on Wednesday, on its way to an airfield which could serve as the staging ground for a future offensive on Mosul, the the biggest city held by the militants. Army and counter-terrorism forces recaptured Telol al-Baj, about 260 km (160 miles) north of Baghdad on the main north-south road on Tuesday, a senior commander participating in the offensive told Reuters. The troops are now around 45 km from the airbase at Qayara, less than two weeks after they set out from the refinery town of Baiji, military officials said. Retaking another refinery near Qayara with a production capacity of 16,000 barrels per day could also hit ISIS' finances. Iraqi forces shelled ISIS positions in Haj Ali on Wednesday in preparation for a ground advance that would allow them to reach the river bank, an army source said. They are expected to link up with the forces from the south near the air base, about 10 km west of the river.

Kurdish Headline: Car bomb strikes Kurdish headquarters in northern Syria; seven dead
At least seven people were killed and about 10 were injured on Wednesday morning when a car driven by a suicide bomber blew up next to a building known as the headquarters of the Kurdish forces in Tel Abyad, located in northern Syria near the Turkish border. They said a suicide car bomber attacked the building run by Kurdish local authorities in the town, which was captured by the Kurdish YPG militia last year from Islamic State militants in an offensive backed by U.S.-led air strikes. Tel Abyad lies north of Raqqa and had been a key supply line for the Islamic State stronghold. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights later said at least 10 people were killed in the blast with nine wounded, some seriously. Amaq news agency, affiliated to Islamic State, said militants detonated a car near a gathering of YPG fighters near the old local parliament building in the city center.

Headline: Istanbul Ataturk airport attack: 41 dead and more than 230 hurt
A gun and bomb attack on Istanbul's Ataturk airport has killed 41 people, at least 13 of them foreigners, and injured more than 230, officials say. Three attackers arrived in a taxi and began firing at the terminal entrance late on Tuesday. They blew themselves up after police fired back. PM Binali Yildirim said early signs pointed to so-called Islamic State but no-one has so far admitted the attack. Tuesday's attack looked like a major co-ordinated assault, says the BBC's Mark Lowen. Ataturk airport has long been seen as a vulnerable target, our Turkey correspondent adds, reporting from a plane stuck on the tarmac in Istanbul. There are X-ray scanners at the entrance to the terminal but security checks for cars are limited. Pictures from the airport terminal showed bodies covered in sheets, with glass and abandoned luggage littering the building. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the attack should serve as a turning point in the global fight against militant groups. "The bombs that exploded in Istanbul today could have gone off at any airport in any city around the world," he said.

Headline: Afghan Ministry of Interior admits 9 districts under Taliban control
Afghanistan’s Ministry of Interior reported yesterday nine districts are under Taliban control, including four in the southern province of Helmand, and more than 40 others are heavily contested. The statement is an admission of the worsening security situation in Afghanistan since the last time the government disclosed such information one year ago. “The districts are in the northeastern, southern and also other parts of Afghanistan. The enemy has increased its activities in those areas,” Ministry of Interior spokesman Sidiq Siddiqi said, according to TOLONews. One year ago, in June 2015, Afghan officials told The New York Times that only four districts were under Taliban control (Nawa in Ghazni, Khak-i Afghan in Zabul, and Dishu and Musa Qala in Helmand). “No other area except those four districts is under the enemy control now,” Major General Mohammad Afzal Aman, the chief of operations for the Ministry of Defense told The New York Times then. However, multiple districts other than the four mentioned by Aman were known to be under Taliban rule at the time. A study by The Long War Journal at this time last year recorded all nine of these districts as being under Taliban command. The nine districts controlled by the Taliban were identified this week as Now Zad, Musa Qala, Bagran, and Dishu in Helmand in the south; Nawa district in Ghazni and Khak Afghan district in Zabul provinces in the southeast; Warduj and Yamgan districts in Badakhshan in the northeast; and Kohistanat district in Sar-i-Pul in the north. The number contested districts, which were described by TOLONews as districts “facing serious security threats,” were not identified.

Headline: ISIS celebrates 2 year anniversary
On the day marking the second anniversary of the establishment of the self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate, ISIS released another of their propagandist high-quality short films. In the 18 minute long video, ISIS issued a “bayan” re-branding the terrorist group’s name from the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham to the Islamic State thereby requesting “baya’a”, or allegiance pledges”, from Muslims living in Arab countries. Showing audiotapes from Jihadist leaders pledging allegiance from Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Libya, and Algeria, ISIS declared war on all Arab states encouraging followers to fight against the governments ruling their respective countries. Throughout this video, ISIS’s Aleppo media branch attempted to portray civil life in areas governed by the terror group showing people leading normal lives in markets, streets, and mosques whilst praising the resilience of the civilians resisting the “crusader airstrikes.” ISIS also claimed to have set up a system of self-sufficiency and welfare asserting that poverty levels in the caliphate are steadily decreasing – in what seems to be an attempt to shrink the outflaw of civilians living under the governance of the caliphate – and that people are governing pious and ordinary lives. After a steady string of defeats in Syria, Iraq, and Libya, ISIS is desperately attempting to render to the public and its supporters worldwide the image of strength, fearlessness, and resolve it has always attempted to maintain. Increasingly desperate, ISIS has called upon its followers globally to carry out terrorist attacks. Though ISIS specifically called for war against Arab governments in this publication, it remains unclear whether terror attacks will escalate in the mentioned Arab countries.

Economic collapse Revelation 6:5-6 & Daniel 2:41-43– Decline of the Euro “ When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” (Revelation) “Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 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. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.” (Daniel 2:41-43)
Headline: The First Casualty Of Brexit: Italy Prepares €40 Billion Bank Bailout
Headline: Leaders warn Britain's Cameron there's no turning back after vote to leave EU
Barely has the market had time to digest last week's Brexit vote by the UK, a vote which may never actually be implemented if the "sturm und drang" campaign unleashed by the EU and the ECB on UK capital markets succeeds in changing the mind of enough "Leavers" to the point that the entire referendum is called off and Boris Johnson never triggers the Article 50 clause, and already Europe's most financially troubled nation, Italy, is using Brexit as a pretext to unleash a €40 billion ($44 billion) bailout of its insolvent banks. As the WSJ reported earlier, the Italian government is considering a capital injection for the country’s banking system, after Italian lenders were hit by a sharp selloff in banking stocks Friday, triggered by Britain’s vote to leave the European Union. Of course, Brexit has nothing to do with it: instead, as everyone knows by now, Italy's banks are beset with €360 billion (and rising) in bad loans, some 18% of total bank balance sheets, chronically poor profitability amid record-low interest rates, thin capital buffers and high costs. It was precisely these concerns that the recently created Atlante "bad bank" was supposed to address until it became painfully obvious that its total war chest of €4.25 was woefully inadequate to put even the smallest dent on Italian bank insolvency. According to Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, the country is the first serious casualty of Brexit contagion and a reminder that the economic destinies of Britain and the rest of Europe are intimately entwined. Morgan Stanley warned in a new report that eurozone GDP would contract by almost as much as British GDP in a "high stress scenario". “When Britain sneezes, Italy catches a cold. It is the weakest link in the European chain,” said Lorenzo Codogno, former director-general of the Italian treasury and now at LC Macro Advisors. So, in the spirit of never letting a Brexit crisis go to waste, Italy has decided to use the British referendum as the scapegoat and demand nearly ten time as much in new capital to be used (and abused) as Italy's banks see fit. As the Telegraph adds, an Italian government task force is watching events hour by hour, pledging all steps necessary to ensure the stability of the banks. “Italy will do everything necessary to reassure people,” said premier Matteo Renzi. “This is the moment of truth we have all been waiting for a long time. We just didn’t know it would be Brexit that set the elephant loose,” said a top Italian banker.

Headline: EU Army on way? EU cannot rely on NATO and needs new defence policy says Brussels chief
According to a new foreign policy document from the Brussels-based institution to be handed to EU leaders next week, a "credible European defense" is also essential to preserve good relations with the US. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini's Global Strategy document states that "as Europeans we must take greater responsibility for our security". The white paper adds: "While NATO exists to defend its members — most of which are European — from external attack, Europeans must be better equipped, trained and organized to contribute decisively to such collective efforts, as well as to act autonomously if and when necessary. "A more credible European defense is essential also for the sake of a healthy transatlantic partnership with the United States." While it stresses that "NATO remains the primary framework for most member states", it goes on to urge EU members to "channel a sufficient level of expenditure to defense". The white paper will be seized on by Eurosceptics as proof of a plot to set up an EU army - a notion that has been widely dismissed by diplomats in Brussels and London. The warning of a European army was at the core of the Brexit campaign and became a hot topic with both sides trading blows over the truth of claims Brussels wanted to create a NATO-style organization.

Headline: Puerto Rico Says It Will Default Even With Congressional Aid
Two days before a potential historical default, Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla made it clear that the commonwealth won’t pay bondholders even as Congress votes on a bill allowing the island to restructure its $70 billion in debt. “On July 1, 2016, Puerto Rico will default on more than $1 billion in general obligation bonds, the island’s senior credits protected by a constitutional lien on revenues,” Garcia Padilla wrote in a editorial posted on a CNBC website. The lapse will mark the first time the U.S. territory has failed to pay what it owes on general-obligation debt, a $13 billion swath that its constitution says has the top claim to the government’s funds. Garcia Padilla previously said the commonwealth couldn’t raise enough to cover what’s owed to bondholders even if he shut down the government. The island has about $2 billion in principal and interest payments due Friday. “All the efforts up until now have already damaged relations with investors,” said Daniel Solender, who oversees $19 billion, including Puerto Rico securities, as head of municipals at Lord Abbett & Co. in Jersey City, New Jersey. “By taking a step to break the constitution, it makes it more definitive.” The default signals the depths of the crisis on the island, which had been tapping whatever funds it could to avoid missing payments on securities backed by the strongest legal pledge.
