The U.S. military has confirmed to ABC News that there has been a terror attack on a military base in Kenya that houses some U.S. military personnel.
The Somali terror group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack that Kenyan authorities said had been repelled with four militants killed in the fighting.
The Al Qaeda affiliate claimed that their fighters had taken control of a portion of the base, a claim that could not be verified.
Last week al-Shabab carried out a car bomb attack in the heart of Mogadishu that killed at least 80 civilians.
About 500 U.S. troops are stationed inside Somalia assisting and advising that country’s military in its fight against the terror group.
When President Donald Trump gave the order to kill Iran's Quds Force leader Qasem Soleimani, he not only made an arguably proportionate response to the invasion of the U.S. Embassy this week but he also reversed a policy of the Obama administration. According to a report from 2018, Israel was "on the verge" of assassinating Soleimani in 2015, but Obama's officials foiled the plan. In fact, they reached out to Iran with news of Israel's plans
Former Secretary of State John Kerry has fielded dozens of private meetings and phone calls in recent months in an effort to preserve the Iran nuclear deal, as President Trump appears poised to withdraw from the pact.
The Boston Globe reported on Friday that Kerry, who helped broker the 2015 nuclear agreement, met with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif at the United Nations in New York last month to discuss ways to salvage the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — the formal name for the Iran deal.
Kerry also reportedly met with French President Emmanuel Macron, both in New York and in Paris.
During a recent state visit to Washington, Macron lobbied Trump to stay in the Iran deal.
Sūrat aṭ-Ṭūr (Arabic: سورة الطور, "The Mount") is the 52nd chapter of the Quran with 49 ayat. The surah that opens with the oath of the Islamic divine character swearing by the Mount of Sinai, where the Torah was revealed to Moses. It takes its name from "the mount" (ṭūr) mentioned in Ayah#1. The surah which addresses many of the arguments put to the Prophet by the disbelievers of Mecca (ayah#29 ff.). The bliss that will be enjoyed by the believers is contrasted to the torments of Hell, and the Prophet is urged to bide his time, to continue to deliver his message, and to wait with confidence for God's judgement. God swears by, among other things, Mount Sinai, that the Day of Judgement is inevitable.

The psalm begins the second section of the three traditional divisions of the Latin psalms, and for this reason the first words ("quid gloriatur in malitia qui potens est iniquitate...") and above all the initial "Q" is often greatly enlarged in illuminated manuscript psalters
Every measure in the region has been directed against us. There is no doubt about this. No doubt at all. The Americans struck Iraq and Afghanistan in order to strike us. They deployed forces all around us. We were the last ones. The story goes like this: “They schemed, and Allah schemed, but Allah is the best of schemers.” They considered us to be a heavy portion that could not be eaten [in one bite] like Afghanistan. So they said to themselves: “We’d better deploy our forces above and below Iran – from this side and from that side – and prepare our capabilities inside Iran itself, and then strike.” When they came, they were swallowed by the Iraqi swamp. Obviously, we arranged that swamp in Iraq for them, in order to prevent them from reaching us.
