The U.S. military confirmed that four American soldiers were killed in a suicide bombing in northern Syria this week. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the suicide attack.

  • Despite this most recent attack, the Trump administration is defending its proposed military pullout plan from Syria. Vice President Mike Pence confirmed that the withdrawal will be “orderly and effective.”
  • Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged that Israel has struck hundreds of Iranian targets in Syria, including an attack last weekend on a weapons depot near the Damascus airport.
  • Prime Minister Netanyahu also called out Iran for its aggression and warned the Iranians to remove their forces from Syria, or Israel will continue its attacks.
  • A group of Muslim protestors barricaded themselves inside the Dome of the Rock on the Temple Mount after they saw a Jewish police office on the Temple Mount wearing a traditional religious yarmulke.
  • The U.S. Congress recently passed a bipartisan Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act named after Elie Wiesel, Nobel Prize-winner and Holocaust survivor. The legislation is aimed to improve the American response to threats of genocide around the world.
