Turkey 'opens fire on Syrian regime forces' coming to the aid of Kurds in Afrin

Added: 22.02.2018 16:14 | 0 views | 0 comments


Turkish forces shelled a column of pro-Assad regime fighters as they tried to join with Kurdish forces resisting a Turkish incursion into northern Syria, Turkey’s resident Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. The regime has been saying for days that it would dispatch fighters to support the Kurds as they battle to keep Turkey from taking control of the Kurdish-held pocket of Afrin. The confrontation pits the Turkish army and allied Syrian rebel groups directly against the military alliance backing the government of President Bashar al-Assad, further scrambling northwest Syria's already messy battlefield. Mr Erdogan described the convoy as being made up of "terrorists" acting independently. He said Turkish artillery fire had forced it to turn back, although the Kurdish militia denied this. "Unfortunately, these kind of terror organisations take wrong steps with the decisions they take. It is not possible for us to allow this. They will pay a heavy price,” he said.  Syrian television had earlier shown the group of fighters passing through a checkpoint that bore the insignia of the Kurdish security force, some chanting "one Syria, one Syria", and driving further into Afrin.

The YPG hailed the arrival of the pro-government forces - which included militias allied to Assad but not the Syrian army itself - and said they were deploying along the front line facing the Turkish border. It made no mention of a deal that a Kurdish official said on Sunday had been struck with Assad's government for the Syrian army itself to enter Afrin. Erdogan said he had previously reached an agreement with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, Assad's main international backers, to block Syrian government support for the YPG fighters. He described the pro-government fighters coming to the YPG's aid as Shi'ite militias, and said they would pay a heavy price. YPG media adviser Rezan Hedo denied Erdogan's assertion that the convoy had turned back under Turkish artillery fire, but he gave no details on its size or composition.

Turkey and Russia have supported opposite sides throughout the war, with Moscow the closest ally of Assad and Ankara one of the principal supporters of rebels fighting to overthrow him. However, in recent months Turkey has lent support to a Russian-led effort to end the war with most population centres in the hands of Assad's government. Ankara said last month it sought Moscow's agreement before launching the Afrin assault. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday the Afrin crisis could be resolved through direct negotiations between Damascus and Ankara. Assad's other main ally, Iran, is more closely involved than Russia with the militias that back the Syrian government on the ground, such as those who entered Afrin on Tuesday. The Turkish offensive has made gains along almost all the border area with Afrin, pushing several km (miles) into Syria and seizing villages. But the YPG still holds most of the region including its main town, also called Afrin.

FBI charge British engineer with murdering wife on yacht in Caribbean

Added: 22.02.2018 12:33 | 0 views | 0 comments


  A British engineer has been charged by the FBI with murdering his wife after she disappeared at sea as they cruised around the Caribbean on a belated honeymoon. Lewis Bennett, 41, who holds dual British and Australian citizenship and is originally from Poole, Dorset, was accused of second-degree murder over the death of Isabella Hellmann, 41, on May 15 last year. He was charged in a Miami court where, according to local television station WPTV, he was also sentenced to seven months in jail for transporting valuable rare coins. After his wife's disappearance Bennett told investigators she was lost at sea when their 37ft catamaran, Surf into Summer, was struck by an unknown object near the Bahamas. According to to the FBI Bennett said he had gone below deck and left Ms Hellmann above to keep watch. He described being woken up at 1am by a jolt and the vessel was taking on water. Bennett told investigators he could not find his wife and had to abandon ship on a life raft. In an affidavit FBI special agent James Kelley said the bureau now believed Bennett "knowingly and unlawfully killed" Ms Hellmann. The FBI affidavit ​claimed ​Bennett​ ​​had damaged the inside of the boat causing it to flood. Isabella Hellman and her British husband Lewis Bennett. She went missing during a honeymoon sailing trip. When Ms Hellmann disappeared the couple, who had a daughter now aged 17 months, were sailing back from Havana, Cuba to their home in Delray Beach, Florida. The daughter was not on the boat. Bennett made an SOS call in the early hours and was later spotted by a US Coast Guard helicopter. He was rescued alone from the life raft. The search for Ms Hellmann was called off three days later and her body was never found. When Bennett was rescued nine plastic tubes of silver coins were found in the life raft. They included 158 English “Year of the Horse” one-ounce silver coins and 77 Canadian Maple Leaf coins, worth about £3,200. The coins were among a batch that had been reported stolen from another boat in St Martin the previous year. Bennett had been a crew member on that boat. According to the owner of the boat the total value of the coins stolen in 2016 was around $100,000. After he was rescued Bennett said of his wife: "She is my soulmate. I thought we were going to be together forever. "I understand why they have to investigate and that is fair enough. I have got nothing to hide. They have to do what they have to do.”​
