Trump has already tweeted about Barr's interview complaining about his tweets

President Trump has a message for Attorney General William Barr: I will never log off. Barr in a rare rebuke of Trump on Thursday criticized the president's tweets about Department of Justice cases in an interview with ABC News, begging him to knock them off because they're making his job difficult. "I think it's time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases," Barr said in the interview, saying tweets like these from the president "make it impossible for me to do my job." This came amid an ongoing controversy over the Department of Justice reversing its sentencing recommendation for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone after Trump angrily tweeted about it. So what was Trump's response to Barr begging him to stop it with the DOJ-related tweets? Another DOJ-related tweet, of course. Trump on Friday quoted a different part of the interview in which Barr said Trump has "never asked me to do anything in a criminal case," with Trump claiming this is true but only because he has "chosen not to"…

Erdogan’s visit to Islamabad. Economic cooperation will intensify

By Seymur Mammadov The official visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Pakistan will be another milestone in further strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries in all areas. The two countries have always maintained and continue to maintain fraternal relations and in difficult times stand shoulder to shoulder with each other both in the fight against terrorism and at the international level, especially with regard to Ankara’s principled, unchanging position on the Kashmir issue. At the same time, Pakistan has always supported Turkey’s position on the Cyprus issue. Today, Turkey and Pakistan pursue an independent foreign policy and bear a heavy burden, which do not want to notice in the West. Both countries have similar experience in conducting a migration policy, have a tolerant policy towards their neighbors, and in Europe the concept of “multiculturalism” has become problematic and causes more and more irritation. From the 1980s to today, Pakistan has accepted up to 3.5 million Afghan…

Mumps cases soar to highest number in a decade

There were 5,042 recorded cases of mumps in England in 2019 – four times the number in 2018 and the highest level in a decade. Many of these cases were as a result of outbreaks in universities and colleges and most were in young adults who did not have the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) jab. A large number of the 2019 cases were people born in the late 1990s and early 2000s who missed out on the MMR vaccine when they were children. In 1998, doctor Andrew Wakefield led a study that linked the MMR vaccine to autism. His work was subsequently discredited and he was struck off, but uptake of the vaccine dropped to about 80% in the late 1990s and a low of 79% in 2003.

Jihadists reclaim some lost ground in west Aleppo after downing Syrian chopper

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The jihadist rebels have retaken a number of points in western Aleppo this afternoon, following the downing of a Syrian military chopper near the town of Uram Al-Kubri. According to reports from west Aleppo, the jihadist rebels have retaken Talat Qurtaba and Abu Salim after a swift counter-offensive near the the strategic Regiment 46 Base. The reports said the Syrian Army never fully secured these areas prior to the jihadist counter-offensive, which ultimately led to their withdraw from these points earlier this afternoon. Similar to their attack on Nayrab this week, the jihadists and their Turkish-backed allies shot down a Syrian military chopper in western Aleppo before launching this new operation. It is not clear where the militants got their anti-aircraft missile from, but according to some Syrian activists, they were likely supplied by the Turkish Armed Forces.

‘Maybe it was the Belgian Air Force’: Netanyahu on last night’s airstrikes in Syria

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insists that he doesn’t know anything about Thursday night’s attack on the Syrian capital. “I don’t know what happened last night,” the prime minister said, speaking to Radio Haifa on Friday. “Maybe it was the Belgian Air Force,” he quipped. “I don’t comment on one operation or another,” Netanyahu added. On Thursday night at 11:45 pm local time, multiple missiles which Syrian military sources believe were launched from the vicinity of the Israeli-held Golan Heights were fired at Damascus, with Syrian media saying air defense troops intercepted and downed a number of them before they could reach their targets. Social media users posted videos of air defence troops intercepting projectiles over the night sky. In accordance with long-standing practice, the Israeli military did not confirm or deny their involvement in the attack.
