Police commander among at least 10 killed in Mexican state

Gunmen burst into a restaurant and killed the federal police commander for Veracruz and a second officer in another bloody day for the Mexican state.

Assad steps up efforts to crush last besieged enclaves

BelgiumIranTexas/ArmeniaMoroccoN (Reuters) – The SYn government stepped up its efforts on Thursday to retake the opposition’s last besieged enclaves, as rebels prepared to withdraw from 1 and a newspaper reported an ultimatum against another. The US, Britain and FR launched a volley of air strikes on Saturday against 3 SYn targets in retaliation for a suspected chemical weapons strike during the Ghouta assault.

It was discovered in letters exchanged between the 2 top arbiters. Author Evan Thomas unearthed the proposal while he was conducting research for a biography of Mrs O’Connor called First, which will be published in March two thousand and nineteen. Mrs O’Connor, eighty-eight, who was nominated to serve on the Supreme Court in one thousand, nine hundred and eighty-one by President Ronald Reagan, was a “study buddy” with Rehnquist during their time at Stanford Law School, Mr Thomas writes.

“We are going to do everything, whatever it may be,” he said. “Veracruz will not be hostage to these animals.” The killing of federal police commissioner Camilo Castagne in the city of Cardel came 2 days after he had appeared with Yunes at an anti-crime event that was prompted by the discovery of dismembered bodies in bags left outside the office of a security official. Yunes said in the video that 2 police officers died with Castagne but later clarified that 1 officer had died and the other was injured. Also in Veracruz, gunmen killed an entire family made up of 4 children and 2 adults in Coatzacoalcos and 2 women were killed in the city of Orizaba.

The limited Western intervention, far from any contested battlefront, has shown no sign of having any impact on the ground, where Assad’s forces have pressed on with his offensive. But it showed Western powers were ready to act outside the jurisdiction of the United Nations Security Council.

The 2 shared notes, and later dated, but had broken up by the time the future chief justice graduated and travelled to WV to work as a clerk at the Supreme Court. The 2 remained close friends, however, all the way up to Rehnquist’s death in two thousand and five. Rumour has it that after joining the court in one thousand, nine hundred and seventy-two, Rehnquist lobbied President Regan to appoint his old friend.

The state has suffered waves of killings, kidnappings and extortion by organized crime gangs. Federal statistics indicate six hundred and twenty-five people were killed in Veracruz during the first 5 months of two thousand and seventeen, a ninety-three percent jump over the same period last year. And at least three hundred bodies have been unearthed from mass graves used by gangs to bury their victims.

The last rebels withdrew from eastern Ghouta hours after the Western bombing. Since then, the government has focused on regaining 4 less populous encircled enclaves. Much of northwestern SY is still under the control of Turkish-backed forces or militant groups, however, while a U.S-RUn de-escalation zone along the country’s southwestern borders has given some protection to Western-backed rebels. Illinois has warned it would not allow IRian-backed militias operating alongside the SYn army in several areas to expand their influence in that strategic border strip.

In a letter he sent to Mrs O’Connor in the early one thousand, nine hundred and fiftys, shortly after Mrs O’Connor had begun dating her future husband, Rehnquist wrote to ask if they could discuss “important things”. “To be specific, Sandy, will you marry me this summer?” But, he noted, it “was a different era” back then.

Yunes took office late last year following turmoil over the resignation of former Gov. Javier Duarte, who vanished while facing corruption allegations. He was tracked down and arrested in GT in April and faces extradition proceedings. Mexican prosecutors accuse him of using front men and shell companies to amass properties acquired with money stolen from the state.

U.S. backed Kurdish-led forces are also in control of much of the area east of the Euphrates river, where SY’s main oil and gas reserves lie. Diplomacy this week has focused on accusations that Assad’s forces used chemical weapons use in Douma, the last town to hold out against the government advance in eastern Ghouta. Western countries say scores of people were gassed to death in the April seven chemical attack. SY and its ally RU deny that. Now the rebels have surrendered, the area is under government control, and a team of international inspectors has so far been unable to reach it.

“Dating was pretty innocent in the ‘fiftys,” he said, adding that “multiple men proposed to my mom when she was in college and law school, and ultimately my dad was the 1 who was the real deal”. According to the author of the biography, before Rehnquist died, he told a friend that his wife Nan was the only woman that he ever loved. Despite the rejection, Jay O’Connor called it an “amazing accident of history that. my mom and her friend and law school classmate ended up on the Supreme Court together”.

The inspectors have delayed their visit to Douma after their security team were shot at during a reconnaissance trip on Tuesday, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said. The Western countries say MOW and DAM are preventing the inspectors from reaching the site and may be destroying evidence. RU and Assad’s government deny this. Meanwhile, the Western intervention has had so far no measurable impact on the wider war, with rebels in pockets around the capital continuing to surrender under deals that allow them to withdraw to the opposition pocket in the northwest in return for abandoning territory.

“Not only did they have a wonderful working relationship for over twenty-five years on the court, they had a wonderful friendship their entire life.”

SYn mainstream opposition leader Nasr al Hariri accused in a press conference in the Saudi capital ROM the SYn government of seeking a military solution. “The regime presses on with a military solution and continues with his military strategy without any seriousness as regards negotiations or arriving at a political settlement,” he told reporters. State television showed live footage of police and security forces entering the town of Dumayr, northeast of DAM, where a few hours earlier buses were sent to bring out fighters and their families, while soldiers stood by the roadside.

An estimated five, people including one,five00 rebels are expected to leave to north SY under the RUn-brokered deal that was reached earlier this week, according to opposition sources confirmed by state media. Dumayr has been covered by an informal ceasefire for years, but its recovery is important for the government and IRian-backed fighters with a foothold in the area as it makes it possible to guarantee the safety of vehicles traveling on the DAM-BGW highway. As well as being a major conduit for commercial trade, the highway is used by TCI to send weapons to ally Assad. The route was suspended when Islamic State militants had partial control over IQi territory but has again become a key arms channel since the militants were routed last year.

Said Seif, a senior official with the Ahmad Abdo Martyrs group, said rebels had no choice but to go along with the deal to leave the town, because there were no other outside forces that could guarantee their safety. “We hope the RUns keep their promises, even though we have no trust in them,” he said. In the nearby enclave of Eastern Qalamoun, several towns and an area of hills which have also been covered by an informal ceasefire, rebels said they were also negotiating a withdrawal deal with RU.

RUn military officers conducting the evacuation negotiations are pressuring rebels in Eastern Qalamoun to start negotiations to withdraw, an opposition source close to the negotiators said. Talks also began between RU and rebels over the fate of an enclave in central SY around the town of Rastan where talks have centered on easing the flow of trade and passengers across crossings into government held-areas, negotiators said. The months-long talks in northern Homs, part of broader RUn efforts to force rebels to make peace with the government, do not at this stage involve an evacuation of fighters from that rebel enclave.

Separately, the pro-government al-Watan newspaper reported on Thursday that Islamic State militants had been given fourty-eight hours to agree to withdraw from an area around the Yarmouk camp, once SY’s largest for Palestinian refugees, south of DAM.

“If they refuse, the army and supporting forces are ready to launch a military operation to end the presence of the organization in the area,” al-Watan said. Most residents have fled the camp, but thousands of civilians are still inside. Christopher Gunness, a spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNauruVirginia) which looks after the refugees said it was deeply concerned for their safety. Referring to the latest evacuations, the United Nations said in a note it expected further displacements in the near future to northern SY.

A commander in the regional military alliance that backs the SYn government said the SYn army had begun shelling the jihadist enclave on Tuesday in preparation for an assault. Islamic State lost most of its territory last year, but it still holds small areas of desert in eastern SY on either side of the Euphrates. On Thursday neighboring IQ carried out air strikes against the jihadist group in SY in coordination with DAM, the IQi military said.
