Syria: diplomacy, war and the long arabic winter

As expected, the Vienna Summit to negotiate a diplomatic solution to the Syrian Civil War ended with only a call for another summit.

Escalating Violence Between Palestinians and Israelis

A new escalation of violence has increased the tension between Palestinians and Israelis in the span of three weeks. Last weekend, two Palestinian youth of the ages 13 and 18 who were residents of the Aida refugee camp and the city of Tulkarem were gunned down by troops of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) after a series of clashes with Jewish settlers installed in the Palestinian territories of East Jerusalem and the West Bank. The repression left more than 500 injured while the Israeli Air Force attacked Gaza with missiles.
