SYRIA: IRAN URGES DIALOGUE, END TO VIOLENCE
 

Syrian security forces are keeping up a fierce assault on dissent as the embattled regime faces surprising calls for an end to the violence from its strongest ally, Iran. Activists said there were reports of machine-gun fire and explosions as military vehicles stormed an area near the Turkish border on September 8. President Bashar Assad’s crackdown on the 6-month-old uprising has left the regime increasingly isolated.

HUNDREDS OF IRAQIS PROTEST OVER POOR SERVICES

ISRAEL WARY AT TURKISH NAVAL CHALLENGE
 

Deepening a crisis over Israel’s killing last year of nine of their citizens aboard an aid flotilla that tried to reach the Palestinian enclave, the Turks on September 8 vowed to assign warships to escort such convoys in the future. The prospect of a showdown at sea with Turkey, a NATO power and fellow US strategic partner in the region, rattled Israelis already long on edge given Arab political upheaval and Iran’s nuclear programme.

Confrontation did not appear imminent a... More
