A train packed with tanks and military equipment (click here) has been spotted moving in America sparking rumours President Trump is gearing up for a ground war....

President Abbas and Prime Minister Netanyahu are on the brink of a summit at the same time there is a "Jewish-Arab Settlement" being built in the West Bank. I can't imagine an escalation in a war profile with or without the USA is conducive to a summit.

The Israeli army attacked the positions from which the mortar shells were fired in the Syrian Golan Heights, the army said in a statement.

The Israeli drone strike was reportedly retaliation after two Syrian 2 mortar shells landed near positions controlled by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) in northern Golan.

According to an Al-Masdar News source, a SAA artillery unit came under drone fire at the village of Abu Al-Nada; fortunately for the Syrian government soldiers, the Israeli aerial attack did not result in any casualties and only minor material damage....
