Capturing the MidEast in short soundbites: poignant
reflections by people who understand the complexities of the Middle East. My philosophy is: "less is more."
You won't agree with everything that's here, but I'm confident you will find it interesting!
Excepting the titles, my own comments are minimal. Instead I rely on news sources to string together what I hope is an interesting, politically challenging, non-partisan, non-ideological narrative.
Top Islamic State commander in Sinai Shadi al-Menii met with Hamas officials in Gaza to discuss cooperation, Israel's Channel 2 reported.
Al-Menii fled to Gaza in May 2015 after his organization attacked an Egyptian military base and killed a soldier. Al-Menii's branch of ISIS in Sinai helped Hamas smuggle arms into the strip via tunnels in return for sophisticated weapons.
