Russia strikes rebel stronghold of Idlib hours after President Trump warns against 'grave mistake'

Russian jets struck the Syrian city of Idlib with a barrage of air strikes on Tuesday, hours after US President Donald Trump warned such a move would be a "grave mistake". At least 23 strikes were reported in several locations around the opposition-held northwestern province of Idlib, in what appeared to be the opening salvo of an expected offensive. Rebels said the strikes had mostly targeted military positions of the Islamist group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the Turkistan Islamic Party in the Jisr al-Shughour district, although at least three civilians were reported to have been killed. Syrian government forces have for weeks been massing around Idlib in preparation for an assault...

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Monday signalled his country could strike Iranian targets in Iraq if they threatened Israel, saying it would hit wherever necessary. "We will face any Iranian threat, no matter where it comes from," Lieberman said in response to a question about reports that Iran had provided ballistic missiles to allied Shiite militias in Iraq in recent months. Israel has pledged to stop Iran, its main enemy, from entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria, where Tehran is backing President Bashar al-Assad's regime in his country's civil war.

McDonald's Corp. (MCD) Footprint Is Shrinking in the U.S

The total number of McDonald's Corp (NYSE: MCD) U.S. locations has been on the decline since 2014, but analysts say there's a good explanation for the decline and McDonald's will once again be expanding its U.S. footprint by 2020. Since that time, U.S. restaurant counts have steadily declined to 14,036 in 2017. Bank of America analyst Gregory Francfort expects that trend to continue through 2019, when he projects total U.S. restaurant count will dip to 13,905.

Russia will flex its military muscles and hold the biggest war games since the Cold War era next month, including almost 300,000 troops and 1,000 aircraft, the defence ministry said Tuesday, leading NATO to warn of a "more assertive Russia".
