Gaza fighting flares, UN, Israel debate truce
By Nidal al-Mughrabi and Dan Williams GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Palestinian fighters slipped into an Israeli village from the Gaza Strip and fought a gun battle with troops on Monday as an unofficial truce called for the Muslim Eid al-Fitr festival disintegrated. The clash, in which Israeli television said five gunmen were killed and the Islamist Hamas movement said it had killed 10 Israeli soldiers, appeared to wreck international hopes of turning a brief lull in fighting into a longer-term ceasefire. After the infiltration at Nahal Oz, a kibbutz collective village due east of Gaza City, the Israeli army warned thousands of Palestinians to flee their homes in areas around Gaza City. As night fell over Gaza, army flares illuminated the sky and the sound of intense shelling could be heard.
Ukraine claims more territory as fight intensifies with rebels

Armed pro-Russian separatists stand guard on the suburbs of ShakhtarskBy Gabriela Baczynska and Aleksandar Vasovic KIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukraine said on Monday its troops had wrested more territory from pro-Russian rebels, advancing towards the site where Malaysian flight MH17 was brought down, which international investigators said they could not reach because of the fighting. Troops recaptured two rebel-held towns near the crash site and were trying to take the village of Snezhnoye, near where Kiev and Washington say rebels fired the surface-to-air missile that shot down the airliner with loss of all 298 on board, Ukrainian officials said. Analysis of black box flight recorders from the airliner showed it was destroyed by shrapnel from a missile blast which caused a "massive explosive decompression", a Ukrainian official said on Monday.



Huge blaze out of control in Tripoli battle as Libya slides into chaos

A damaged building is pictured after clashes between rival militias, in an area at Alswani road in TripoliBy Patrick Markey and Aziz El Yaakoubi TRIPOLI (Reuters) - A huge fuel depot in Libya's capital burned out of control on Monday, set ablaze in fighting between rival militias that has driven the country to chaos three years after the NATO-backed revolt that toppled Muammar Gaddafi. Combat over control of the nearby airport forced firefighters to withdraw, abandoning their attempts to extinguish the blaze ignited by a missile strike that hit millions of litres of fuel. Western countries have urged their nationals to leave, shut their embassies and pulled diplomats out, after two weeks of clashes among rival factions of former rebels killed nearly 160 people in Tripoli and the eastern city of Benghazi. The Netherlands, the Philippines and Austria on Monday prepared to evacuate diplomatic staff.



Police find 15 corpses in Baghdad in bloody start to Muslim Eid holiday

An armed Iraqi policeman stands guard outside a Sunni mosque during Eid al-Fitr prayers in BaghdadBy Michael Georgy BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraqi police on Monday found the corpses of 15 people, including three women shot in the head in militia-style killings, a bloody start to the holiday marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, security sources said. Fears have been growing of a relapse to the dark days of sectarian civil war which peaked in 2006-2007 since Sunni militants seized large swathes of the north last month, building on gains by comrades made in the west of Iraq. Iraq's U.S.-trained and funded army unraveled in the face of the lighting advance, and Shi'ite militias now rival government forces in their ability to confront the group formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. Baghdad's morgues are filling up once again with victims of sectarian slayings, kidnappings are on the rise and the bloodshed is forcing families to flee abroad or move to neighbourhoods where they feel less threatened.

U.S., Afghanistan fail to track U.S.-supplied small arms: watchdog
The U.S. government has failed to effectively track many of the more than 465,000 light weapons it has supplied to Afghanistan's army and police, creating the risk that machine guns and other small arms could fall into insurgent hands, a U.S. watchdog said on Monday. A report from the office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), an independent U.S. government watchdog, found that multiple databases maintained by the U.S. government often had missing or duplicate information about weapons provided to Afghan forces. SIGAR said its investigation into weapons oversight found even more serious problems in the Afghan government's system for keeping track of small arms once it receives them. Afghanistan is expected to reduce the size of its police and army from about 335,000 today to around 228,000 by 2017.

Pilots of Air Algerie jet asked to turn back: France

A French flag flies half-mast at the Elysee Palace in Paris on July 28, 2014. France on July 26 said flags on every public building would fly at half-mast for three days from July 28 to mourn the Air Algerie crash in MaliFrance said Monday the pilots of the Air Algerie passenger plane that crashed in Mali, killing all 118 people on board, had asked to turn back in a new development to a complex probe into the tragedy. "What we know for sure is that the weather was bad that night, that the plane crew had asked to change route then to turn back before all contact was lost," Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius told reporters in his latest briefing about last week's disaster. Speaking hours after the black box flight recorders of the McDonnell Douglas 83 jet arrived in Paris from Mali to help investigators, Fabius said air crash experts currently on the remote desert site of the accident were working in "extremely difficult conditions". More than 20 French experts from the country's Bureau of Investigations and Analyses (BEA), which probes air accidents, as well as specialist police forces were on site in Mali's barren Gossi area where the plane came down, he said.



Israel must be ready for long Gaza campaign: Netanyahu

An Israeli soldier adjusts the cannon of a Merkava tank positioned along the border between Israel and the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip on July 28, 2014Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday Israelis must be ready for a long military campaign in Gaza, after mortar fire from the enclave killed four people in the Jewish state. "We must be prepared for a lengthy campaign," Netanyahu said in a speech broadcast live, soon after the news of the shelling of the Eshkol region that also reportedly wounded at least 12 people. "Israeli citizens cannot live with the threat from rockets and from death tunnels -- death from above and from below," he said. Israel began a major air campaign in Gaza on July 8 to wipe out rocket fire, expanding it with a ground operation on July 17 with the aim of destroying the tunnels.



UN takes aim at Islamist oil grab in Syria, Iraq

An image grab taken from a propaganda video released on March 17, 2014 by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)'s al-Furqan Media allegedly shows jihadists in the northern Syrian city of HomsThe UN Security Council on Monday backed a Russian initiative to bar trade in oil with Islamists in Iraq and Syria. The 15-nation Council warned in a joint statement that buying oil from groups such as the Islamic State and Jabhat Al-Nusra fighting in Iraq and Syria could lead to sanctions. Moscow's Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said he was pleased with the stance, saying it was a "reminder" from the top world body that "this amounts to a very serious transgression" of UN resolutions.



EU leaders, Obama agree Russia must face further sanctions
Britain, Italy, France, Germany and the United States agreed that Russia should face further sanctions over its role in the Ukraine crisis, the British government said in a statement on Monday following a phone call between the Western leaders. "The latest information from the region suggests that even since (Malaysia Airlines flight) MH17 was shot down, Russia continues to transfer weapons across the border and to provide practical support to the separatists," the statement, issued by Prime Minister David Cameron's office, said. "Leaders agreed that the international community should therefore impose further costs on Russia and specifically that ambassadors from across the EU should agree a strong package of sectoral sanctions as swiftly as possible."
