Netanyahu renews support for two-state solution with Palestinians

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu holds a meeting of his new cabinet, in honor of Jerusalem day, at the Israeli Museum in JerusalemIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu renewed his commitment on Wednesday to a two-state solution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, after backtracking on that pledge during a heated campaign for a March election. Speaking as he met with European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on her first visit to the region, and a week after his new government took office, Netanyahu said: "We want a peace that would end the conflict once and for all … I don't support a one-state solution, I don't believe that's a solution at all, I support the vision of two states for two peoples." He reiterated Israel's longstanding demand that any Palestinian state established in land Israel captured in a 1967 war should be demilitarized, and said he hoped to discuss with Mogherini "how we can advance that vision forward".

Syria’s Palmyra in peril after IS overruns most of city

A Syrian soldier fires artillery shells towards Islamic State group jihadists in northeastern Palmyra, on May 17, 2015Islamic State group fighters overran most of the historic Syrian city of Palmyra, in a blow to efforts to repel the advancing jihadists after the fall of Iraq's Ramadi. The jihadists, notorious for demolishing archaeological treasures since declaring a "caliphate" last year straddling Iraq and Syria, appeared to have fought their way into Palmyra on foot after breaking through in the city's north. It was unclear if they had reached Palmyra's UNESCO-listed heritage site, including ancient temples and colonnaded streets, and its adjacent museum housing priceless artefacts located in the city's southwest.
