Life Under Islamic State: A 'Secret' Beauty Salon

08 February 2017 23:56:42 WN.com - Mideast News

A month after Islamic State took over her neighborhood, militants stormed 20-year-old Safaa's family salon, shutting it down and declaring the beauty parlor sinful. But under the guise of a tailor shop operating from a room in her home, Safaa continued to cut hair and apply makeup to women for two-and-a-half years, operating illegally, though not entirely in secret. From a rented home in Iraqi-forces-controlled Mosul, Safaa tells VOA her story in Arabic, edited for clarity. They didn't want to close our shop altogether, because someone needed to make up IS wives. But after IS took over our area,...

Trump Administration Considers Ban on Muslim Brotherhood

08 February 2017 23:56:42 WN.com - Mideast News

The Trump administration is considering whether to designate as a terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood, a pan-Mideast Islamist movement that traces its origins back to 1928 Egypt and has millions of followers. The move, some analysts say, carries the risk of roiling already tense relations with some regional allies and could add further to a perception in the Middle East that the new administration is anti-Islam, and views political Islamists and jihadists as one and the same thing. The Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded in the Egyptian city of Ismailia when Egypt was under British occupation 89 years ago, calls for countries to be governed by Islamic law. The group's affiliates...

Turkish-led forces advance into outskirts of Syrian city

08 February 2017 23:56:42 WN.com - Mideast News

ANKARA/BEIRUT — Syrian rebels backed by the Turkish military have captured the outskirts of the Daesh-held city of Al Bab in northern Syria, the Turkish government and rebel sources said on Wednesday. The advance threatens an important Daesh stronghold, whose fall would deepen Turkish influence in an area of northern Syria where it has created a de facto buffer zone. Syrian government forces have also advanced on Al Bab from the south, bringing them into...

Polisario says on alert along W.Sahara sand barrier

08 February 2017 23:56:42 WN.com - Mideast News

TINDOUF, Algeria — Behind a long sand wall winding through the disputed Western Sahara, leaders battling for the independence of the former Spanish colony say they are on alert. Morocco insists the territory is an integral part of its kingdom, but the Algeria-backed Polisario Front demands a referendum on self-determination. "There are 25,000 Sahrawi fighters and any other Sahrawi is recruitable," whether man or woman, says Polisario defence chief Abdullahi Lehbib. His comments come after the president of the Sahrawi Arab Democratic...

‘Erdogan, Trump agree joint action against Daesh in Syria’

08 February 2017 23:56:42 WN.com - Mideast News

ANKARA — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President Donald Trump agreed in an overnight phone call on joint action against the Daesh terror group in the Syrian towns of Raqqa and Al Bab, both held by the militants, Turkish presidency sources said on Wednesday. US-Turkish differences during former president Barack Obama’s administration impeded the US-led campaign against Daesh, and closer coordination could mean faster progress towards freeing swathes of northern Syria from Daesh. Erdogan now hopes that...
