  • Israel government in turmoil as defence minister quits and calls for elections over Gaza ceasefire

    Golocal247.com news

    Israel appeared to be hurtling towards early elections on Wednesday after the defence minister resigned and accused Benjamin Netanyahu of “surrendering to terror” by agreeing to a ceasefire with Hamas. The resignation of Avigdor Lieberman, a hawkish member of Mr Netanyahu’s coalition, leaves the government with just a one-seat majority that could collapse if other parties also decide to quit.  Mr Netanyahu’s allies said he planned to take over the defence ministry himself, meaning he would simultaneously serve as Israel’s prime minister, defence minister, foreign minister and health minister.  But Naftali Bennett, the leader of the Right-wing Jewish Home party, demanded the defence portfolio for himself and threatened to bring down the government if he was not given the post.  The day of political drama began when Mr Lieberman resigned on Wednesday afternoon over Mr Netanyahu's decision decision to accept a ceasefire with Hamas to end 24 hours of intense fighting.    Mr Lieberman said the Israeli government should confront the Islamist militant group more forcefully even if it meant suffering more rocket fire into Israeli cities.   The resignation of Avigdor Lieberman, one of Mr Netanyahu’s coalition partners, has rocked the Israeli government and could trigger fresh elections in the Jewish state Credit: REUTERS/Ammar Awad "What happened yesterday - the truce combined with the process with Hamas - is surrendering to terror,” he said. "What we're doing now as a state is buying short-term quiet, with the price being severe long-term damage to national security.” Mr Lieberman withdrew his five Yisrael Beiteinu MPs from Mr Netanyahu’s coalition, meaning the government now has only 61 seats in the 120-member parliament. He also called for early elections.  Mr Netanyahu had been bracing for attacks from the Right since agreeing to an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire deal on Tuesday, ending the fighting which left one person dead in Israel and seven dead in Gaza. Residents of the southern city of Sderot, a regular target for Hamas’ rockets, burned tires and blocked the streets in protest at the ceasefire, saying Israel was being held hostage by Hamas. Speaking before the defence minister’s resignation, Mr Netanyahu defended the agreement and said the public could not understand all the reasons for his decision.  #BREAKING: 500 Protesters in the southern city of Sderot after the decision on a ceasefire: "We have become a hostage of Hamas - they will decide when I shower, or sleep" pic.twitter.com/LXMggmM1v0— Amichai Stein (@AmichaiStein1) November 13, 2018 “I hear the voices of the residents of the south. Believe me, they are precious to me, their words penetrate my heart. But together with the heads of the security forces, I see the overall picture of Israel's security, which I cannot share with the public,” he said. Mr Netanyahu offered no public reaction to the resignation but allies in his Likud party said he planned to take over the defence minister job and keep the coalition government standing for at least several months. However, within hours that plan was looking shaky.  Mr Bennett, who is the education minister as well the leader of Jewish Home, presented the prime minister with an ultimatum: hand over the defence ministry or see the government collapse.  It was not clear Wednesday night which option Mr Netanyahu would choose or whether he would try to call his junior coalition partner’s bluff.   Elections must happen by November 2019 but most Israeli politicians expected Mr Netanyahu would call them in the spring. Opinion polls have shown that Mr Netanyahu’s Likud would win an election, despite the ongoing corruption scandal swirling around the prime minister and his wife. However, Mr Netanyahu will be reluctant to go straight into a campaign after the ceasefire deal, which was unpopular with his own Right-wing base.  Hamas immediately hailed Mr Lieberman’s resignation as victory for its fighters. “This is a political victory for Gaza, which caused this political earthquake within the occupation,” the group said.  Mr Lieberman heads Yisrael Beiteinu, a secular Right-wing party which draws its support mainly from Israel’s Russian population.  He has a history of extreme statements - like calling for the assassination of Hamas’ leader and the beheading of disloyal Arab citizens of Israel - but was more restrained when he became defence minister in May 2016 His small party has hovered just above the threshold of votes to win seats in parliament and he may have calculated that his high-profile resignation over security issues would give him momentum among Right-wing voters going into an election.

  • As relationship sours, Macron tells Trump France is not vassal of U.S.

    In five posts sent on Tuesday after a visit to Paris to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One, Trump reminded France of its near-defeat by Germany in two wars, took a swipe at its wine industry, and mentioned Macron's falling approval ratings. Trump had earlier criticized Macron's suggestion that a European army was needed, in part, to reduce reliance on the U.S. military. Asked in an interview on the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier whether he was offended by Trump's tweets, Macron talked at length about the long military alliance between the two countries, from America's War of Independence onwards.

  • Watch California's powerful, relentless winds stoke the state's fires

    Golocal247.com news

    It's the time of year when winds really kick up in California, and firefighters on Tuesday night captured footage of relentless gusts driving a new blaze over the parched terrain.  Firefighters in San Bernardino County — an arid region east of Los Angeles — spent the night combatting the newly-born Sierra Fire amid potent seasonal winds, known as Santa Anas. Though this particular fire (147 acres and well-contained), is quite small compared to the expansive Camp and Woolsey fires, it shows how persistent 50 mph gusts can whip fire over the land — land that has been parched by a confluence of dry winds and a long, scorching summer.  #SierraFire: Footage from earlier this evening. In #SantaAnaWinds, Dozers can often engage where it’s too dangerous for handcrews. A decisive force multiplier in tonight’s firefight. ^eas pic.twitter.com/gtqmJB5pk6 — SB County Fire (@SBCOUNTYFIRE) November 14, 2018 In the video, a bulldozer, which had been clearing vegetation to limit the spread of fire into an adjacent community, can be seen working while the winds blow smoke through the air and stoke brush fires in the background. Santa Ana winds are notorious for stoking fall fires in California. These dry winds, traveling east from the great U.S. deserts, pick up in the fall and eventually peak in December, Sasha Gershunov, a research meteorologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, said in an interview.  But typically by mid-November — and certainly December — some rains will wet the dry California vegetation.  The winds will always blow, but these days they're increasingly gusting over dried-out terrain. This makes for perfect fire conditions.  SEE ALSO: When will this terrible wildfire season in California end? "Now we’re in our traditional fire season, but the fuels are untraditionally dry this late into the season," said Gershunov. "This seems to be getting more common as the climate changes," he added. Some of the most destructive, deadliest wildfires occur in Southern California, a place not defined by pine forests, but shrubs and grasslands.  Here, a confluence of Santa Ana winds, development in fire-prone areas, and climate change have boosted the state's growing wildfire woes. Overall, the amount of land burned in the United States has more than doubled over the last 30 years, and predictably, these fires have been enhanced by a warming globe.

  • X-ray images show tools Khashoggi killers brought to Istanbul, Turkish paper claims

    Golocal247.com news

    The 15-strong Saudi kill team responsible for the murder of columnist Jamal Khashoggi carried luggage containing scissors, syringes and a stun gun, a pro-government Turkish paper has claimed. Sabah, a daily newspaper headquartered in Istanbul, published images on Tuesday purported to be airport X-ray scans of the team's bags as they left Istanbul for Riyadh on October 2, the day of Mr Khashoggi’s murder.  A number of tools and pieces of equipment can be seen, including walkie-talkies, a signal jammer and a pair of scissors.  The bags were loaded onto two private jets but police were not able to open them due to diplomatic immunity, according to the report. The paper, which is close to Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), is one of a number of outlets that has published a steady stream of leaks providing lurid details of Khashoggi’s death, a tactic seemingly designed to keep pressure on Riyadh and its allies. How the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi unfolded Mr Khashoggi, a regular contributor to the Washington Post, was killed in the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate while attempting to secure paperwork that would allow him to remarry.  According to Istanbul’s chief prosecutor, he was strangled and his body dismembered soon after entering the building.  Saudi officials initially denied all involvement but in the face of mounting international outrage admitted that the columnist had been killed as part of a “rogue” operation. The X-ray images were published as the New York Times reported that in an audio recording of the killing, one of the team responsible can be heard instructing a superior to "tell your boss" after the murder takes place, a suspected reference to Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince.  Khashoggi was once close to the royal family but went into self-imposed exile last year and had since been critical of the Crown Prince in his writing. Mr Erdogan described the tape as a “calamity” this week and said it shocked even a Saudi intelligence officer who listened to it, according to local media. The Turkish president added that orders for the killing came from the highest levels of the kingdom.
