Donald Trump's national security adviser, HR McMaster, said on Saturday that Russian meddling in the 2016 election is "incontrovertible" and "beyond dispute" in the wake of new US indictments. McMaster spoke after Robert Mueller, the special counsel in the Russia investigation, revealed new details about Moscow's sophisticated cyber-meddling campaign on Friday.

Needed in Syria: Disengagement
One is the outbreak of another war between Israel and its neighbors.  A reminder of this danger has come from events that began when Israel said it shot down an Iranian drone that had entered its airspace.  Israeli F-16s then attacked a command center in Syria, during which Syrian air defenses downed one of the Israeli warplanes (a rare event for Israel).  Israel subsequently launched a much more widespread set of aerial attacks within Syria.  The Israelis have conducted scores of attacks in Syria over the last five years, but this most recent assault may have been the largest Israeli attack there since the 1980s. A new war involving Israel would surely also involve Lebanese Hezbollah.  There is no indication that Hezbollah seeks such a war.  The group has incurred significant costs by participating in fighting within Syria and has many wounds to lick.  Its leaders still have regrets about the brinksmanship that last got Hezbollah entangled in a war with Israel.  Even though it could get in some hits with cross-border rocket fire, the group's leaders know that in a new clash it would get badly bloodied by its militarily more capable foe.

Russian mercenaries, a discrete weapon in Syria
The death of Russian citizens in Syria from a US coalition strike last week, which has been played down by both Moscow and Washington, has exposed the role of Russian mercenaries in the multi-front conflict. The incident followed a steady trickle of reports about Russians dying in battle in Syria while employed as guns for hire in a privately-owned outfit whose role may be securing oilfields for President Bashar al-Assad. Russia on Thursday has finally recognised that five Russian citizens, not officially affiliated with the Russian military, were likely killed in the strikes in eastern Syria, in the first admission of non-military combat casualties.

Thirteen Russians charged with US election meddling as shocking detail of allegations is laid bare
The full scale of alleged Russian election meddling has been revealed as 13 people were charged and their alleged crimes recounted in remarkable detail.  The Russians worked for the Internet Research Agency, a pro-Kremlin troll factory in St Petersburg, and were accused of using social media to undermine the 2016 American election.  A 37-page indictment produced by the team of Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the investigation, gives the fullest ever account of alleged Russian interference.  It describes how Russian agents created hundreds of social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube to influence the election.  Some accounts were created through US internet servers and made to look like they were run by American political activists rather than Russians, according to US prosecutors.  Inside Russia's 'troll factory': The agency accused of interfering in the US election Posts were allegedly used to systematically undermine Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, and support Donald Trump, then the Republican candidate, as well as Bernie Sanders, Mrs Clinton's Democratic rival.  So effective were the accounts that some Americans were taken in and convinced to hold up anti-Clinton signs at rallies by the Russians, it is claimed.  Robert Mueller is heading the investigation Credit: AP The Russians were also able to stage pro-Trump rallies by promoting them on social media, offering to p

Another bombshell dropped on Friday afternoon when the special counsel investigating led by Robert Mueller announced indictments against Russian troll group Internet Research Agency and a dozen other individuals for "operations to interfere with the U.S. political system, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election." SEE ALSO: An ad industry group nominated Russia's election hack for all the awards The indictment offers more concrete proof of Russian interference in that election, something that President Trump and members of his administration have been greatly skeptical about despite the mounting evidence.  Trump tweeted Friday after the indictments were announced, once again claiming there was no collusion with the Russians.  Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong - no collusion! — Donald J.

Trump" and "disparaging Hillary Clinton." We already know they managed to use social media under false names to reach voters in the U.S., spread false inform

Let's work together on defense, France and Germany tell Europe
The defense ministers of Germany and France pledged to redouble their military and foreign policy cooperation efforts on Friday, inviting other European countries to participate if they felt ready to do so. In a speech to the Munich Security Conference, German defense minister Ursula von der Leyen said Europe's countries would not be able to respond nimbly enough to global challenges if they were stymied by the need to decide joint foreign policy approaches unanimously. "Europe has to up its pace in the face of global challenges from terrorism, poverty and climate change," she said.

Florida shooting victims: The pupils and heroic teachers who never made it home
As gun shots rang out at a Florida high school on Wednesday, a call on the school's security radio asked if the loud sounds were firecrackers. Aaron Feis, in his capacity as a school security guard, responded: "No, that is not firecrackers." It was the last anyone heard from him. It later emerged that as others fled the gunman, Mr Feis had put himself in harm's way, using his own body to shield his students. "He died the same way he lived - he put himself second," said Denise Lehtio, a spokeswoman for Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.  "He was a very kind soul, a very nice man. He died a hero."  Mr Feis, who a former student of Marjory Stoneman himself, was also an assistant football coach at the school.  Aaron Feis, the football coach at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, jumped in front of pupils as the gunman opened fire In a statement, the team said: "He was our Assistant Football Coach and security guard.  "He selflessly shielded students from the shooter when he was shot. He will forever be in our hearts and memories." Mr Feis was one of at least 17 victims in Wednesday's deadly massacre, along with 13 teenagers and two other staff members who were shot and killed by former student Nikolas Cruz. The massacre has shocked the small, tight knit community of Parkland, Florida.  The middle class town, 50 miles from Miami, was named the Florida's safest town last year with just seven violent crimes recorded.  Scott Beige Scott Beig

U.S. and Turkey agree to mend ties; Turks propose joint deployment in Syria
By Yara Bayoumy, Orhan Coskun and Ece Toksabay ANKARA (Reuters) - The United States and Turkey agreed on Friday to try to rescue a strategic relationship that Washington acknowledged had reached a crisis point, with Turkey proposing a joint deployment in Syria if a U.S.-backed Kurdish militia leaves a border area. U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met President Tayyip Erdogan during a two-day visit that followed weeks of escalating anti-American rhetoric from the Turkish government. While relations between Washington and its main Muslim ally in NATO have been strained by a number of issues, Turkey has been particularly infuriated by U.S. support for the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, which it sees as terrorists.

Gun restraining order might have thwarted Florida shooting: experts
Some gun control proponents and legal experts said Wednesday's school shooting might have been thwarted if it had. Suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz's history of violence in school and disturbing social media posts would have allowed authorities to prevent him from legally obtaining a firearm in California and Connecticut, which have gun violence restraining order (GVRO) statutes, the experts said. The killing of 17 students and staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, could give new momentum to such laws.
