An excerpt from, ``Saudi war crimes evidence could be fabricated by Houthis – UK minister`` Veterans Today, January 29, 2016:
Of course it is Britain that has, over the years, been caught fabricating evidence many times...not this time, of course, because Britain has NO evidence supporting their claim...just another wild conspiracy theoryAn excerpt from, ``US Rejects Israeli Claim of Turkish Oil Trade with ISIL`` Asbarez, January 28, 2016:
Addressing MPs in the House of Commons, Ellwood said he took the UN report’s allegations seriously. However, the Tory minister noted that its authors had not personally made their way to Yemen. He argued that the evidence of potential attacks on civilians was predominantly based on “hearsay” and satellite pictures. He also suggested that some of the devastation referenced in the report could have been caused by Houthi rebels, who are fighting the Yemeni government.
The United States has categorically rejected Israeli claims that Turkey has been smuggling oil with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Syria.An excerpt from, ``Kurdish Exclusion From Peace Talks the Result of Turkey 'Blackmailing' West`` Sputnik News, January 28, 2016:
“We reject the premise that the Turkish government is in league with ISIL to smuggle oil. We have seen no evidence to support such an accusation. In fact, ISIL oil smuggling has decreased over time due to efforts of the Turks and other counter-ISIL coalition members to target oil extraction and transportation infrastructure,” U.S. Ambassador to Turkey John Bass said in a written statement on January 28.
“Turkey continues to take steps to improve the security of its border with Syria, working with the United States and other international partners,” he added.
Despite being one of the most effective ground forces in the region, the Kurdish PYD has been barred from participating in Syrian peace. Elif Sarican of the Kurdish Student Union, tells Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear why the PYD has been left on the sidelines.
"They have been heroic, and they have been, I would say, the sole reason why, in Kobane, ISIS was defeated," Sarican tells Loud & Clear. "It’s been shocking for all of us that they’re not being included in these Syrian peace talks in Geneva."
Those talks begin Friday, seeking an end to Syria’s bloody conflict. According to Sarican, Western nations have refused to allow the Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) to join the talks for fear of upsetting Turkey, especially considering Ankara’s role in slowing the flow of refugees in mainland Europe.
