    Surveying the rocky no-man's land on Lebanon's eastern border with Syria, Hezbollah fighters recalled the "difficult" battle they fought to recapture much of the terrain from militants. The Lebanese Shiite movement has waged a five-day offensive across the scraggy landscape known as Jurud Arsal to oust what it says are ex-Al-Qaeda Syrian jihadists. On Wednesday, Hezbollah brought journalists to its positions overlooking the last pocket of enemy territory.

    By Aziz El Yaakoubi DOHA (Reuters) - Qatar said on Wednesday a decision by four Arab states to add 18 groups and individuals allegedly linked to Doha to their "terrorist" lists was "a disappointing surprise" and that it was doing all it could to fight extremism. Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain put another nine groups based in Yemen and Libya and nine people from several Arab countries on the blacklist, saying all were associated with Qatar. "(The new list) comes as a disappointing surprise that the blockading countries are still pursuing this story as part of their smear campaign against Qatar," Sheikh Saif Bin Ahmed al-Thani, director of the Gulf kingdom's Government Communications Office, said in a statement sent to Reuters.

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday welcomed Israel's removal of metal detectors from a highly sensitive Jerusalem holy site but said it was "not enough". Israel installed metal detectors at entrances to the Haram al-Sharif mosque compound, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, after an attack on July 14 that killed two policemen. "Israel took the right step to remove the metal detectors to help lower tension," Erdogan said.

    In a ruling which could have far-reaching consequences for how the European Union deals with migrants in future, the European Court of Justice on Wednesday upheld the right of member states to deport asylum-seekers to the first EU country they enter. The ruling amounted to an effective rejection of Angela Merkel’s controversial “open-door” refugee policy, which saw more than one million asylum-seekers flood into Germany. The court ruled that the EU’s Dublin regulations, under which refugees must seek asylum in the first member state they enter, still apply despite the unprecedented influx of 2015. In doing so, the court ignored the advice of Eleanor Sharpston, its British advocate-general, who warned that the system could leave border states “unable to cope”. The court ruled on the cases of two Afghan sisters and a Syrian man who entered the EU during the 2015 crisis. The Jafari sisters, Khadija and Zainab, entered the EU through Croatia after fleeing Afghanistan with their children. At the time, Mrs Merkel had opened Germany’s borders to migrants and Austria was operating a similar policy. Croatia allowed the sisters and their children to cross its territory in order to reach one of the two countries. Peter Foster talks about Merkel's migrant crisis one year on 01:52 They claimed asylum in Austria, but the Austrian government later reversed its position and returned the families to Croatia, ordering them to seek asylum there. The sisters challenged the decision, arguing they should be given asylum in Austria as they had been allowed to cross Croatia and had not entered its territory illegally. In a second case, an unnamed Syrian man challenged his deportation from Slovenia to Croatia under similar circumstances. The court rejected the challenges, ruling that the fact Croatia had allowed the migrants to cross its territory did not mean the Dublin rules had been waived. The ruling will be welcomed in central European countries like Austria and Slovenia, where there is considerable political resistance to letting in more migrants. But it will cause concern in the countries where most migrants first enter the EU, Italy and Greece, which complain the system leaves them to shoulder too much of the burden. FAQ | Dublin Regulation The court’s decision was unexpected, after the judges took the unusual step of ignoring the advice of the advocate-general. In a written opinion issued last month, Ms Sharpston warned that the Dublin system “was simply not designed to cover such exceptional circumstances”. “If border member states, such as Croatia, are deemed to be responsible for accepting and processing exceptionally high numbers of asylum-seekers, there is a real risk that they will simply be unable to cope with the situation,” she wrote. While the ruling will be seen as a victory by many in central Europe, Hungary and Slovakia suffered a setback in a separate case over EU quotas for sharing asylum-seekers between member states. In an opinion presented to the court, Yves Bot, another advocate-general, said the court should reject a bid by the two countries to have the quota system overturned.

    One of the prominent members of the loose-knit alt-right movement in the US has been given a lesson from a very sassy historian in the UK.  Paul Joseph Watson, editor-at-large of alt-right conspiracy site Infowars, got a free educational tale on ancient Rome by English historian Mike Stuchbery.  SEE ALSO: Meet the guy who pranked Infowars into publishing fake Trump news Watson posted a tweet slamming the BBC for portraying Roman Britain as ethnically diverse: Let's just say that Stuchbery didn't spare words in his long, sassy reply:  He started off explaining why Roman Britain was actually very ethnically diverse: There are several reports of "moors" along with (modern-day) Iraqi and Syrian soldiers on Hadrian's Wall, noted Stuchbery. Also, every camp in the province would have a settlement where wives, kids, slaves and tradespeople lived. Many of the inhabitants would travel with the legion, he added.  Governors deployed to Britannia would take slaves with them from anywhere in the Empire, Stuchbery added. And London was particularly diverse: Stuchbery also reported that people from southern Mediterranean, North Africa, and Rome lived in Britain: It seems that Paul Joseph Watson needs to go back to school to study history.  And Stuchbery got some well-earned praise from the undisputed Queen of Twitter, J. K. Rowling:  WATCH: Filmmakers tried to use hilarious code words to keep 'The Avengers' under wraps

    In the world of dating apps, there's playing the long game, and then there's straight-up procrastinating.  One pair of college students have found fame after dilly-dallying for three long years on Tinder, messaging back and forth without ever actually meeting up. But, at long last, they've met in person. Live on TV.  Michelle and Josh achieved viral fame earlier this month, after Josh tweeted screen shots of their three-year long running gag of late replies to each other. Tinder caught wind of the pair's procrastination and even offered to pay for the pair to go on a date.  The pair have FINALLY met for the first time on Good Morning America in front of millions of viewers and it was every bit as awkward as you can imagine.  As the two hugged, they both giggled nervously. "It is so good to finally meet you," said Josh. "I'm blushing like crazy," he added.  After the show, the pair headed off to Maui, Hawaii, for their casual first proper date.

    By Idrees Ali WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. Navy ship fired warning shots when an Iranian vessel in the Gulf came within 150 yards (137 meters) on Tuesday in the first such incident since President Donald Trump took office in January, U.S. officials said. The last major incident was earlier in January, though there have been instances when a U.S. vessel fired a flare as well as an event in March when a U.S. Navy ship was forced to change course after multiple fast-attack vessels from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard came too close. In a statement, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command said the patrol craft, named Thunderbolt, fired the warning shots in front of the Iranian vessel after it ignored radio calls, flares and the ship's whistle.
