1. Israel fires at missile from Syria; IDF jets said to pound Damascus arms depots

Israel said Tuesday night it had deployed its air defenses against a missile shot from Syria as Damascus attempted to repel an alleged Israeli airstrike against Hezbollah or Iranian targets near the capital.

The Israel Defense Forces said there was no damage or injuries from the surface-to-air missile fired from Syria at Israel.

“An IDF aerial defense system activated in response to an anti-aircraft missile launched from Syria,” the army said in a statement.

2. U.K. orders review of anti-Christian violence around the world

Britain has commissioned an independent review into the persecution of Christians to find practical steps to support followers of a religion that it said has been subject to a dramatic rise in violence worldwide.

Some 215 million Christians worldwide faced persecution for their faith last year, it said, with Christian women and children particularly vulnerable and often subject to sexual violence as a result of their beliefs.

Last year, on average, 250 Christians were killed every month because of their faith, it said.

3. Turkey masses tanks on the Syrian border as Erdogan “prepares to move against the Kurds” after the US leaves - while outgoing Secretary of Defense James Mattis thanks troops for their service

Turkey has begun massing tanks and troop carriers on its southern border with Syria as it prepares to move into the country once American soldiers have left.

Erdogan's forces were pictured arriving in border cities of Kilis and al-Rai after the country's foreign minister said they will push into Syria as soon as possible.

It comes after Donald Trump announced that all 2,000 American troops will withdraw from the country and that Turkey will take over the fight against ISIS.

But Turkey is also likely to direct its attacks against Kurdish forces stationed in northern Syria which helped US troops in the battle against ISIS.

Turkey has carried out limited attacks against Kurdish positions in Afrin province, and has vowed to expand its operations to cover its entire southern border.

4. German Supreme Court rejects anti-child marriage law as unconstitutional

The German Federal Supreme Court has made a new ruling on a child marriage case which could have implications on the way child marriages conducted legally overseas are treated in the country.

The ruling comes from a case involving a Syrian man who was separated from his underage “wife” when the pair arrived in Germany as asylum seekers in August 2015, Die Welt reports. [...]

The case was then sent up to the Federal Supreme Court which has now ruled that the marriage between the pair should be examined on the basis of its legal status in Syria. [...]

Since the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, Germany has seen a huge surge in the number of child marriage cases with at least 1,000 cases being known as far back as 2016.

5. PAKISTAN: NIA busts ISIS suspects in raids across UP & Delhi

Five people allegedly linked to a new module of the Islamic State group were arrested on Wednesday in Uttar Pradesh’s Amroha district in a joint operation by the National Investigation Agency and the state’s Anti-Terror Squad.

6. Pakistan's journalists complain of increasing censorship

Pakistani journalists, who have taken on military dictators and been beaten and jailed in the pursuit of a free press, say they now face a form of censorship that is more subtle but no less chilling, one spearheaded by the security services.

Journalists and press freedom advocates say the military and the powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency, or ISI, are pressuring media outlets to quash critical coverage. The newly elected government is meanwhile slashing its advertising budget, squeezing a key source of revenue for private newspapers and TV stations.

Ghazi Salauddin, a veteran Pakistani journalist who has witnessed successive periods of direct military rule, said today's censorship is the worst it's ever been.

“Today we don't know what will annoy them,” he said of the military. “Today we have to do self-censorship and that is the worst kind of censorship, because it is done out of fear.”

Websites have been shut down, including the Urdu website of the U.S. government-funded Voice of America, after it reported on a tribal movement critical of military operations in regions bordering Afghanistan. Mashaal Radio, affiliated with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, has also been shut down.

8. Sajid Javid defends the government's right to deport convicted grooming gang members to Pakistan and stands by his “sick Asian paedophiles” tweet

Home Secretary Sajid Javid today defended his right to highlight the Pakistani Asian background of grooming gangs.

In an interview on Radio 4 he insisted he was right to speak out about “sick Asian paedophiles”, arguing that ignoring their ethnicity would give a boost to extremists.

He also defended the Government's decision to strip some members of the gang of their British citizenship.

Javid said it was his job was to keep the British public safe even if it meant offenders being sent to a country where they may face fewer checks on their actions.


9. German police find “Islamic State” flag after suspected attack on Berlin railway track

The flag and a text in Arabic were found close to the site where an overhead contact wire was found damaged. It is unclear if the propaganda objects were related to the damage caused to the overhead power cable.

German police said on Tuesday they had recovered a flag of the “Islamic State” (IS) group and a text in Arabic close to a railway track in Berlin where an overhead power cable was found to be damaged on Sunday.

Investigators are trying to ascertain if the propaganda objects were linked to the damage caused to the overhead contact wire. They are also examining if the perpetrators had any political motives.

“Since the beginning of the investigation, several pieces of evidence have been secured,” police said, adding that investigators found a torn steel cable and the damaged overhead contact wire at the train track on Sunday.

10. “Enough is enough, we've got to make a stand”: Vietnamese community rallies together to fight back against Sudanese gangs terrorising their strip of shops

Young Vietnamese people are vowing to take action after video of their elders being attacked by thugs went viral.

The shocking footage shows people, believed to be shopkeepers, defending themselves with chairs against a group of men of African appearance.

Screaming, shouting and smashing can be heard as the group of Vietnamese people try to push back against the group, who allegedly attacked them after asking for a cigarette and being rejected.

The clip left many young Vietnamese people in the area furious, and they have vowed to band together and fight back.

Treka Zn reacts to Trump decision in pulling out US troops from Syria
1. as far as I am concerned, Israel and Syria can work it out on their own. I support Israel’s right to exist, but am done going to war for them.
They are collaborating with the Saudis ( and the U.S. until Trump) to change Syria into a Sunni strong hold in an attempt to keep Iran from threatening Israel from Syrian lands. Growing the caliphate is what Sunni Islam does best and they are only too happy to chase out the secular populations that Assad is trying to protect and turn Syria into an Islamic state.
The dilemma = Assad keeps Iran to help him keep out the Sunni Arab terrorist threat who want to absorb his country. Israel is threatened by this Iranian military presence in Syria and collaborates with the Sunnis as a counter to Iran’s presence. I’m not sure how smart that plan really is for anybody, but it is time to step away.
All the Syrians we have imported want to ruin this:
Lighting of the Christmas Tree in Damascus, Syria 2018

and this:
Nightlife with Treka in the old city in Damascus, Syria 2018
We are stuck with all the orthodox sects who do not wish to get along in Assad’s secular Syrian society, shown above.. That is also why the ones brought here will never go home as long as Syria is allowed to live in peace, protecting the Christian, Alawite, Druze, Shiite, and even some moderate Sunni, as well as other small minorities. We seem to have imported those who want to live in an Islamic state under Sharia rule. Justin has told them that he is going to be sympathetic to that sentiment, because fundamentalist Islam (via some form of Sharia) will make it much easier to control populations. Our sick government sees the benefits of that and so is flooding our country with this extremist type. The peaceful Syrians have no reason to leave the protected city of Damascus Syria. Those are the Syrians we could live with, but they have no reason to leave. Assad is protecting the Muslim and non Muslim minorities. The Sunni want to dismantle that ‘nest of kafir’ and ‘inferior’ Muslims. The Sunni consider all others as ‘less than’, even their cousin the Shiite Muslims.
Its time to mind our own business and worry about the mess our government has made for us here at home or we will end up with the same fate as Constantinople. Please tell me where I am wrong. I am trying to understand. Any input would be welcome especially regarding the Syrian conflict, the west’s running opinion of Assad and the west’s involvement in trying to unseat him. Their logic escapes me. I am glad Trump is pulling out.

Immigrants could pay more benefits for European society………….

Richard, it dose not matter what level of education the Muslims archive, unless you prefer your throat to be sliced open intellectually, or perhaps you would find it more of a thrill to have a Mob Cut….With amused jeers in your ears.

Killing Christians is a major pastime with these savages. Read the Quran.

Richard Miller posted, “Immigrants could pay more benefits for European society.”
How? Enough of them to be a huge burden, are illiterate even in their own language, and unemployable. Karan Singh nailed it. Why bring them in the first place? We must have a death wish. At the very least, those who are making these serious, mostly irrevocable decisions for our western countries are giving little logical thought to what our nations will become. You cannot bring in the third world in such numbers (or maybe at all) and not expect the country to be dragged down. Why do our politicians want to destroy our progress? Not only will progress halt, it will (is) move (ing) backwards. Generations of progress crumbling. Sharia law (in some form or other) here we come. Why bring in the violence and crime in the first place?? Why do we have to fix their dysfunction?

Amidst your PC rant you agree that contrary to our politicians & msm version these illegal immigrants (infiltrators) are uneducated, uncivilized, violent criminals.
So pray tell, why we need to bring in all those illiterate, uncivilized, violent immigrants to our developed, civilized countries in the first place and then educate them try to make them learn some manners leave their criminality & violence behind? Won’t it be better if we leave them to their own means & resources in their countries among their people, culture & religion to develop their countries, while we direct our resources to better educate & care our own population?

#5. PAKISTAN: NIA busts ISIS suspects in raids across UP & Delhi

It should read ‘INDIA’ not Pakistan; as UP (a northern state) & Delhi (capital of India) both are part of INDIA.

No. 10 Australia should teach Trudeau a lesson, that being a Country can bring in great Immigrants that want to work and contribute, then the UN forces the Country to bring in 3rd World people that just want to rape and steal. When the good Immigrants are forced to fight back, the country and both groups of migrants are anti-productive.

No. 2 UK orders review of world violence against Christians!! That’s like asking the PROBLEM to fix the PROBLEM.
A couple weeks ago Theresa May was too afraid to offer ASIA BIBI asylum as she didn’t want to upset the UK’s Pakistani Gangs. The UK’s Muslim problem has been out of control for decades, that’s why tourists have stopped going to that shit-hole Country. Even the Germans feel sorry for the British.
