Headline: Israel cuts UN funding following 'anti-settlement' resolution
Headline: Netanyahu thanks US Congress for opposition to UN resolution
Israel announced on Friday it would be suspending a significant portion of its annual contributions to the United Nations for 2017, in response to the approval of UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which condemned Israel’s presence in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem. The Israeli Mission informed the UN that the cut, amounting to approximately six million dollars, is an act of protest and represents the portion of the UN budget allocated to anti-Israel bodies. These UN bodies include the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP), the Division for Palestinian Rights (DPR), the Work of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories (SCIIHRP), and the Special Information Program on the Question of Palestine of the UN Department of Public Information. Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, commented on the decision and said, "It is unreasonable for Israel to fund bodies that operate against us at the UN. The UN must end the absurd reality in which it supports bodies whose sole intent is to spread incitement and anti-Israel propaganda." Danon added that "now is the time to implement real change at the UN. We seek to stop the practice where the UN is used solely as a forum for unending attacks against Israel."

Headline: Abbas: 'Settlements' threaten the two-state solution
Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas said on Thursday that the international peace conference to be convened in Paris later this month is an opportunity to settle the Palestinian problem through an international mechanism and a timetable for its implementation. Abbas made the remarks during his meeting with an Israeli delegation that included academics, writers and political activists who signed a petition in support of the Paris conference. The PA chairman claimed that UN Security Council Resolution 2334, which denied the legitimacy of Israeli communities in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem, sent a clear signal that the “settlement policy” will not bring peace, and that the international community stands united against “settlements which tangibly threaten the two-state solution.” “We want to achieve peace through negotiations, reject any other way and we will always declare our opposition to terror, extremism and violence everywhere in the world,” Abbas was quoted as having said by the official PA news agency.

Headline: Amona residents: Government not keeping terms of agreement
Residents of the Amona outpost in the West Bank said Friday the government has failed to implement a compromise deal signed 20 days ago, as the February court-ordered deadline to dismantle the hilltop community loomed. In a letter sent Friday morning to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the residents said the government had not yet begun work on a new site for them, had reneged on allowing them use of a plot, and acted improperly in appointing a project manager. They also questioned whether Netanyahu had ever intended to keep his promises. A tiny outpost of some 41 families on a hillside alongside the Ofra settlement, northeast of Ramallah, Amona was built in the 1990s on what the court has repeatedly ruled was privately owned Palestinian land. A 15-year legal battle culminated in a December 2014 ruling by the High Court that the outpost be evacuated and demolished. At the time, the court gave the state and residents 24 months to prepare alternate arrangements. “Deals must be honored,” they wrote. “We are warning you — 32 days before the date set by the High Court — to carry out your responsibility.” According to the letter, residents were informed that work will begin no earlier than January 18, only 20 days before they will have to leave their homes on a court order.

Headline: Relocating US embassy to Jerusalem a red line — Jordan
Jordan has warned of "catastrophic" repercussions if President-elect Donald Trump makes good on a campaign promise to move the US embassy in Israel to occupied Jerusalem. Minister of State for Media Affairs and Government Spokesperson Mohammad Momani told The Associated Press on Thursday that such a move could affect relations between the US and regional allies, including Jordan, the agency reported. Momani said an embassy move would be a "red line" for Jordan and would "inflame the Islamic and Arab streets". His Majesty King Abdullah is the Custodian of the Holy Shrines in East Jerusalem, which Israel occupied in 1967 and annexed in a move not recognised by the international community. The Palestinians seek to establish their capital in East Jerusalem. The future of the city would be central to any renewed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Most countries, including the United States, maintain embassies in Tel Aviv. Three Republican senators on Tuesday unveiled legislation that would recognise Jerusalem as Israel's official capital and move the US embassy to that city from Tel Aviv.

Headline: Report: Israel spy satellite discovers secret Russian missile cache in Syria
Headline: Russia says it starts Syrian drawdown with aircraft carrier
An Israeli spy satellite has discovered a number of Russian mobile short-range ballistic missiles stockpiled in Syria, Channel 2 reported Friday. In high definition photos taken by the Israeli "Eros B" satellite, the weapons, dubbed "Iskander" missiles, are clearly seen on trucks inside an army base in Latakia, located in western Syria. The pictures seemingly prove what western intelligence agencies have long suspected: Russia has provided Syria with a wide array of the most advanced missiles in its possession. Before Friday, evidence of the missiles had been scarce, given the fact that the Russians and Syrians had cached the weaponry in secretive strategic locations. Strong rainstorms, however, forced the Russians to transfer the missiles to different locations using trucks, leaving them exposed to documentation. The "Iskander" missile, which has a range of up to 500 kilometers, is a medium range ballistic weapon that has the capacity to carry nuclear warheads and is superior to the older "scud" missile model.

Headline: 15 die as blast hits Syrian regime bastion Jableh, Latakia province
A large explosion hit a Syrian regime-held coastal town on Thursday, killing at least 10 people and wounding dozens, according to Syria’s state TV — an attack that undermined a nearly week-old and already shaky Russia- and Turkey-brokered cease-fire. First videos that emerged from the scene in the town of Jableh show charred cars, some turned upside down, and extensive damage to shops lining a commercial street filled with onlookers. The images show pools of blood covering the asphalt as fire engines were scrambling to put out small fires, apparently caused by the explosion.
Qusay Al-Khalil, the head of the local hospital, said the explosion also severely wounded at least 30 people. “The explosion rocked the town,” he told state TV, adding that it prompted a state alert at his hospital. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the civil war, put the death toll at 15. The monitoring group relies on a network of activists on the ground in Syria.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing in Jableh, which lies in the coastal Latakia province, the heartland of Syria’s Alawites, a Shiite offshoot to which President Bashar Assad’s family also belongs.

Headline: Suicide blast in Baghdad, attacks earlier in the day kill 27
Several attacks in and around Baghdad, including a suicide car bombing in a busy commercial area after nightfall on Thursday, killed at least 27 people in a particularly brutal day in the Iraqi capital. The suicide bomber, who targeted shops and food stands near a bus station in the city's busy Bab al-Muadam area, killed 11, a police officer said. He says the bombing also wounded at least 22 people. Earlier in the day, bombings elsewhere in and around Baghdad killed at least 16 people and wounded dozens, officials said. A medical official confirmed the casualty figures. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to release information. No one immediately claimed responsibility for any of the attacks but they bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group, which has carried out a string of bombings in Baghdad over the past week, killing nearly 100 people. Earlier Thursday, a car bomb tore through a Baghdad market, killing nine people while four other attacks — mostly by bombs that went off in commercial areas or targeted security forces — killed at least seven. In the Baghdad market attack, the car bomb was parked near outdoor fruit and vegetable stalls in a mostly Shiite neighborhood. The fatalities included two policemen. The Sunni extremists frequently target Iraq's security forces and civilians in Shiite neighborhoods.

Headline: Iraq launches offensive on Daesh near Syria border – Anbar Province
Iraqi forces launched an offensive against the Daesh group near the Syrian border Thursday, piling further pressure on the militants’ crumbling “caliphate.” A joint operations commander told Reuters that Iraqi forces have retaken around 70 percent of eastern Mosul from Daesh militants and expect to reach the river bisecting the city in the coming days. Lt. Gen. Talib Shaghati, who is also head of the elite counter-terrorism service (CTS) spearheading the campaign to retake the northern city, said the cooperation of residents was helping them advance against Daesh. Baghdad and its allies also turned up the heat on Daesh in its last remaining Iraqi stronghold of Mosul, where the US-led coalition said it had doubled the number of its advisers. “A military operation has begun in the western areas of Anbar (province) to liberate them from Daesh,” said Lt. Gen. Qassem Mohammedi, head of Jazeera Operations Command. He said the operation was led by the army’s 7th division, police, and fighters from local tribes that have opposed the militants, with aerial backing from the coalition. The main targets of the operation are Aanah, Rawa and Al-Qaim, the westernmost Iraqi towns along the Euphrates Valley.

Headline: Iraqi forces surround Mosul's Muthana district in surprise attack
Iraqi security forces launched a surprise attack against Islamic State militants in Mosul's Muthana district after crossing the Khosr River overnight. Brig. Gen. Shukr Nuaimi, commander of the Iraqi forces' 73rd Brigade, said the surprise raid began at 3 a.m. on Friday. "The counter-terrorism forces have begun early today, in the morning, to raid the al-Muthana district, northeast of Mosul with the support of the coalition and Iraqi fighter jets," Nuaimi said at a press conference. The Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service, or ICTF, said its "heroes" crossed the Khosr River, a tributary of the larger Tigris River that splits Mosul from a western section to a larger eastern section. ICTF said troops were able to raise the Iraqi flag above several buildings in the Muthana district but it is unclear how much of the area was under Iraqi control. ICTF said its troops completely surrounded Muthana. "The Iraqi security forces are making excellent strides in liberating neighborhoods in eastern Mosul from" the Islamic State, Air Force Col. John L. Dorrian, the spokesman for the U.S.-led international coalition against the Islamic State, said in a statement on Friday. In northern Mosul, Iraqi forces freed the Hadba district from IS control, Gen. Abdul Amir Rashid Yarallah said in a press conference, Rudaw reported. Dorrian on Wednesday said "time is ... on the side of Iraqi security forces" because the Islamic State is unable to reinforce or resupply its militants in Mosul." The second phase of the battle to retake Mosul -- which is led by Iraqi security forces and aided by the Kurdish Peshmerga, a Shiite-led militia, and the U.S.-led international coalition against the Islamic State -- began last Thursday after the offensive was suspended for weeks.

Headline: Turkey detains 18 people over Izmir attack, sees PKK responsible - minister
Four people were killed, including the two attackers, after a car bomb exploded outside of a courthouse in the western Turkish coastal city of Izmir, according to local officials. The blast was caused by a car bomb, Izmir municipality secretary general Bugra Gokce told broadcaster CNN Turk. A security source told Reuters police had shot dead two attackers following the blast, and the state-run Anadolu news agency said they were searching for a third. Hospital sources said ten people had been brought in wounded. A police officer and court employee were also killed in the attack, which took place at an entrance for judges and prosecutors, the Dogan News Agency reported. Ambulances were seen rushing to the scene and at least one vehicle was burning near a courthouse in the city, local media reported. "Initial evidence suggests the PKK was behind the attack," Erol Ayyildiz, Izmir provincial governor, told reporters hours after the attack.

Headline: Exclusive: Iran capitalizes on OPEC oil cut to sell millions of barrels - sources
Iran has sold more than 13 million barrels of oil that it had long held on tankers at sea, capitalizing on an OPEC output cut deal from which it is exempted to regain market share and court new buyers, according to industry sources and data. In the past three months, Tehran has sold almost half the oil it had held in floating storage, which had tied up many of its tankers as it struggled to offload stocks in an oversupplied global market. The amount of Iranian oil held at sea has dropped to 16.4 million barrels, from 29.6 million barrels at the beginning of October, according to Thomson Reuters Oil Flows data. Before that sharp drop, the level had barely changed in 2016; it was 29.7 million barrels at the start of last year, the data showed. Unsold oil is now tying up about 12 to 14 Iranian tankers, out of its fleet of about 60 vessels, compared with around 30 in the summer, according to two tanker-tracking sources. The oil sold in recent months has gone to buyers in Asia including China, India and South Korea and to European countries including Italy and France, according to the sources and data. It was unclear which companies bought the oil. Iran is also looking to use the opportunity to push into new markets in Europe, including Baltic and other central and eastern European countries, said separate oil industry sources, though it was not clear if any oil had been sold there.

Headline: The U.S. Marines are sending a task force back to Afghanistan's Helmand province
The U.S. Marines will deploy a 300-person task force to southwestern Afghanistan this spring to help local security forces beat back Taliban gains in the restive Helmand province. The deployment will last nine months, marking the first in what's expected to become a series of similar rotations for the Marines, officials said Friday. Security in Helmand, a long-time Taliban stronghold that's home to the abundant poppy crop fueling Afghanistan's lucrative heroin trade, has deteriorated precipitously since U.S. forces largely withdrew from the province in 2014. The Marines will serve as an advise-and-assist force there, said Lt. Gen. William Beydler, commander of U.S. Marine Corps Forces Central Command. Task Force Southwest, as it will be known, is in the midst of a five-month training workup. Once in theater, the Marines will work alongside "key leaders" from the Afghan National Army's 215th Corps and the the 505th Zone National Police "to further optimize their capabilities in that region," officials said. "Afghanistan remains a dangerous and dynamic environment," Beydler said. "And our aim, training and advising the Afghan forces, is to preserve and build upon the gains they've made. Marines will face risk in this new assignment. This new deployment reflects our enduring commitment to the people of Afghanistan, and the country's stability and economic viability."

Headline: Power struggle risks tipping Libya deeper into crisis
Headline: Libya's Dismemberment Begins? Chad Declares Military Operation in Border Region
Escalating tensions between rival Libyan armed forces threaten to plunge the North African country deeper into turmoil only weeks after the fall of the Islamic State group's bastion Sirte. The deeply tribal nation has been sharply divided since the 2011 ouster of longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi, with rival militias vying for influence and control of oil resources. The power struggle pits an administration based in eastern Libya, backed by military strongman Khalifa Haftar, against a UN-brokered unity government in Tripoli supported by militias from the western city of Misrata. "The situation is most likely going to escalate further given that the voices of war are now the loudest" after an air strike by Haftar's forces against the Misrata militias, analyst Mohamed Eljarh of the Atlantic Council said. The Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) is the centrepiece of Western hopes to stem an upsurge of jihadism in Libya, but it has failed to assert its authority across the country. The rival authority in the east has refused to cede power and has its own armed forces, which call themselves the Libyan National Army (LNA) and are led by Haftar.

Headline: Islamic terror cells shift from Mideast to U.S.-Mexican border
A new report by a government watchdog agency says jihadists are partnering with Mexican drug cartels along the U.S.-Mexican border, preparing to carry out precision attacks in American cities. Judicial Watch cites confidential U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sources for the disturbing report, which builds on earlier JW reports shining light on the jihadists’ exploitation of the porous border policies of President Barack Obama. As part of the plan, Islamists have arrived recently at the Monterrey International Airport situated in Apodaca, a city in the Mexican state of Nuevo León, about 130 miles south of the Texas border, JW reports. “An internal Mexican law enforcement report obtained by Judicial Watch confirms that Islamic terrorists have ‘people along the border, principally in Tijuana, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.'” U.S. intelligence sources have also warned that the defeat of ISIS in Iraq and Syria will lead to many of those jihadists escaping and relocating into Western Europe and the United States. But JW reported as early as April 2015 that ISIS had established a training camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, in an area known as “Anapra” just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Headline: Mexico gas protests, looting leave 2 dead, 600 arrested
Anger over gasoline prices hikes in Mexico fueled more protests and looting Thursday, and officials said the unrest had resulted in the death of a policeman and a bystander, the ransacking of 300 stores and arrests of over 600 people. The country's business chambers said the combination of highway, port and terminal blockades and looting this week forced many stores and businesses to close and threatened supplies of basic goods and fuel. Mexicans were enraged by the 20 percent fuel price hike announced over the weekend as part of a government deregulation of the energy sector. Protesters began blocking highways and gas stations and some people have broken into stores to carry off merchandise. Authorities said one policeman was run over and killed and another was seriously injured when they tried to stop robberies at a gas station in Mexico City. Police in the capital said they had arrested 76 people for looting about 29 stores.

Soldiers launched mutinies in three cities across Ivory Coast on Friday, authorities said, demanding higher pay and bringing the threat of unrest back to Africa’s fastest-growing economy.
Gunfire rang out across Bouake, the second-largest city in this West African nation, starting around 1 a.m., according to residents. Similar mutinies erupted later in Daloa, in the central region, and Korhogo in the north. “They are heavily armed and parading through the city of Daloa,” said Karim Sanogo, a student who lives there. “Security forces have abandoned their posts. Everyone has returned home to seek shelter.” The armed men also controlled the main arteries of Bouake that are used by truck drivers to carry merchandise from Mali and Burkina Faso.

Headline: Record 95,102,000 Americans Not in Labor Force; Number Grew 18% Since Obama Took Office in 2009
Barack Obama's presidency began with a record number of Americans not in the labor force, and it's ending the same way. The final jobs report of the Obama presidency, released Friday, shows that the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 14,573,000 (18.09 percent) since January 2009, when Obama took office, continuing a long-term trend that began well before Obama was sworn in. In December, according to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, a record 95,102,000 Americans were not in the labor force, 47,000 more than in November; and the labor force participation rate was 62.7 percent, a tenth of a point higher than in November. The participation rate dropped to a 38-year low of 62.4 percent on Obama's watch, in September 2015. It was only 3-tenths of a point higher than that last month.

Australian health authorities have issued a warning after a sharp rise in cases of a mosquito-borne virus. Ross River virus infected 314 people in Victoria in 2016, nearly a 50% increase on the year before, said the state's chief health officer Charles Guest. Prof Guest suggested stagnant water from recent heavy rain created conditions ripe for mosquito breeding. The virus, found in Australia and some Pacific nations, can cause joint pain, fatigue and muscle aches. Current treatments only target symptoms, which can last for months. "The best protection from these diseases is to avoid mosquito bites," Prof Guest said in a statement.

Headline: California funds 1st US inmate sex reassignment
A 57-year-old convicted killer serving a life sentence in California became the first U.S. inmate to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery, the prisoner's attorneys confirmed Friday to The Associated Press. California prison officials agreed in August 2015 to pay for the surgery for Shiloh Heavenly Quine, who was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole. Quine's case led the state to become the first to set standards that will allow other transgender inmates to apply to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery. It also prompted a federal magistrate to require California to provide transgender female inmates housed in men's facilities with more female-oriented items such as nightgowns, scarves and necklaces. "For too long, institutions have ignored doctors and casually dismissed medically necessary and life-saving care for transgender people just because of who we are," said Kris Hayashi, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, which represents Quine and other transgender inmates. Completion of the surgery not only fulfills a landmark legal settlement but marks a victory "for all transgender people who have ever been denied the medical care we need," Hayashi said.

Headline: A second active shooting incident reported at Ft. Lauderdale airport
A gunman opened fire in the baggage claim area at the Fort Lauderdale airport Friday, killing five people and wounding eight before being taken into custody in an attack sent panicked passengers running out of the terminal and onto the tarmac, authorities said. Authorities gave no details on a possible motive for the shooting inside Terminal 2, which serves Delta Air Lines and Air Canada. "People started kind of screaming and trying to get out of any door they could or hide under the chairs," a witness, Mark Lea, told MSNBC. "He just kind of continued coming in, just randomly shooting at people, no rhyme or reason to it." Lea said the gunman said nothing as he "went up and down the carousels of the baggage claim, shooting through luggage to get at people that were hiding." The killer had a handgun and went through about three magazines of ammunition, Lea said. Then the attacker threw down his weapon and lay spread-eagle on the ground until he was taken into custody, Lea said. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida identified the gunman as Esteban Santiago and said that he was carrying a military ID, but that it was unclear whether it was his. "We don't know a motive at this point," Nelson said. "This could well be someone who is mentally deranged, or in fact it could be someone who had a much more sinister motive that we have to worry about every day, and that is terrorism. We can't conclude that." President Barack Obama was briefed by his Homeland Security adviser, the White House.

Headline: NASA says mysterious object hurtling towards Earth could be an asteroid or a comet
NASA recently spotted two massive space objects hurtling towards Earth. While the American space agency has pinpointed one as a comet, the other has left it slightly more baffled. The comet is set to fly close to Earth this week, but the mystery object isn't expected to make an appearance until February. The object, dubbed "2016 WF9", was detected by NASA's asteroid- and comet-hunting NEOWISE project on 27 November 2016. It is roughly 0.3 to 0.6 miles (0.5 to 1 kilometres) across and is in an orbit that takes it on a scenic tour of our solar system. At its farthest distance from the sun, it approaches Jupiter's orbit. Over the course of 4.9 Earth-years, it travels inward, passing under the main asteroid belt and the orbit of Mars until it swings just inside Earth's own orbit. After that, it heads back toward the outer solar system. However, NASA scientists are not sure whether it is a comet or an asteroid . "2016 WF9 could have cometary origins," said Deputy Principal Investigator James "Gerbs" Bauer at NASA's JPL. "This object illustrates that the boundary between asteroids and comets is a blurry one; perhaps over time this object has lost the majority of the volatiles that linger on or just under its surface."

Headline: Moderate Quake Kills 4 in Rural Area in Southern Iran
A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck a village deep in southern Iran on Friday, killing four people and injuring four others, Iranian state television reported. The TV said the quake struck in the morning hours in the village of Saifabad near the town of Khonj, about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) south of the capital, Tehran. According to the TV, the four fatalities are Afghan nationals, who worked on local farms. It said one of the injured was also an Afghan laborer. The local governor, Mokhtar Abbasi, told the TV that rescue workers are on site, helping the victims in Saifabad and also assessing the damage in neighboring villages. The quake did not affect infrastructure and utilities, Abbasi said. The epicenter of the quake is in a mountainous and sparsely populated rural area. The U.S. Geological Survey described the temblor as a 5.3 magnitude quake, striking at a shallow depth of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) in Iran's Fars province. Magnitude 5 earthquakes can cause considerable damage.

A storm surge has caused the worst flooding on Germany's north-east coast since 2006, leaving streets and cars submerged and causing major damage. Towns and cities along the Baltic coast were flooded, from Kiel in the far north to the resort island of Usedom near the Polish border. Sea levels were recorded in the port of Wismar at 1.83m (6ft) above normal overnight. Severe winter conditions also hit Sweden and Finland. The overnight temperature fell to -41.7C at Muonio in Finnish Lapland, near the north-western border with Sweden, the coldest night of the winter so far. Further west in northern Sweden, temperatures fell as low as -41.3C and road conditions were treacherous in much of the country.
