Shared battlefield goals trump ideology among Syria rebels – for now

Civil defense members walk on rubble of a damaged site hit by what activists said was shelling on Tuesday by forces loyal to Syria's President Bashar al-Assad in Aleppo's al-Aryan neighborhoodBy Dasha Afanasieva REYHANLI, Turkey (Reuters) – Hardline Islamists fighting side-by-side with groups backed by the United States have made gains in northern Syria in recent weeks while showing rare unity, which some fear may be short-lived. An Islamist alliance calling itself Army of Fatah, a reference to the conquests that spread Islam across the Middle East from the seventh century, has seized northwestern towns including the provincial capital Idlib from government forces. The alliance, which includes al-Qaeda's wing in Syria, known as the Nusra Front, and another hardline militant group, the Ahrar al-Sham movement, is edging closer to the coastal province of Latakia, President Bashar al-Assad's stronghold. While the Islamist groups appear to be stronger than their Western-backed allies, it is a rare example of cooperation, just weeks after Nusra Front fighters crushed a previous U.S. backed rebel force in a blow to Washington's Syria strategy.


Egyptian president’s Spain trip angers human rights groups

Spain's King Felipe VI (right) and his wife Queen Letizia with Abdel Fattah al-Sisi at the Royal palace in Madrid on April 30, 2015Rights groups slammed an official visit to Spain on Thursday by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, saying he should be shunned for his authoritarian rule rather than courted for business deals. Spain's King Felipe VI hosted the Egyptian leader to lunch at the royal palace after interior ministers from both nations signed an agreement to boost cooperation against illegal immigration, terrorism and organised crime. The visit, the first by an Egyptian head of state to Spain since 2006, comes amid mounting concern in the West over unrest in the Middle East with conflicts raging in Libya, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Spain's economy ministry said it had agreed to cooperate with Egypt on a possible high-speed rail link between Cairo and Luxor.
