CBS News notes that IS is known to position its fighters and supplies near to and even in the same buildings as civilians. Yesterday's air strike comes less than a week after international observers reported that a US strike on a mosque complex in the north-west of the country left at least 52 people dead, which is disputed by the US. "The two air strikes have raised concerns about whether the US military has become less careful, or less selective, in its targeting," writes the New York Times . "President Donald Trump repeatedly said during his campaign that he would loosen restrictions intended to protect civilians during attacks against the Islamic State," the newspaper adds. The northern city of Raqqa is the terrorist group's last major urban stronghold in Syria and its de facto capital. Middle East ISIS Syria

Siemens, Europe's top engineering group, participated in the meetings "to get more information about the project," spokesman Dennis Hofmann said in an email. "The project is at an early stage and questions have to be clarified," he wrote. The discussions, on Tuesday and Wednesday, come after a similar, Chinese-led project build a trans-South America railway ran into roadblocks late last year due to cost and environmental concerns. Bolivian and German officials did not name other companies that attended the meetings, but Bomba said: "The presence of 40 German companies here demonstrates that Germany is not only in the planning phase, but also in the realization phase." Bolivia's Public Works Minister Milton Claros told Reuters Bolivia and Germany had signed agreements for technical assistance and financing for the project. The ministry said the project would connect the Brazilian port of Santos to the Peruvian port of Ilo and had a preliminary cost estimate of $10 billion.

With a number of NATO officials continuing to complain that President Trump is too close to Russia, the White House today announced that Trump will be attending a NATO summit in May , and that the visit will reaffirm his strong commitment to NATO. This will mark the first summit President Trump will have attended, and the announcement comes just days after the announcement that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be skipping a foreign minister-level meeting in early April because of a visit from the president of China. Allegations of contact between the Trump campaign and Russia has been a source of controversy within the US, and that has extended overseas, with a lot of NATO members issuing statements warning Trump against having good relations with Russia. Secretary of Defense James Mattis dismissed NATO concerns, insisting that the Trump Administration had been strengthening the US-NATO relationship, and that the bond is getting stronger.

Neither Washington nor Beijing has confirmed the summit at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate, but news reports indicate the plans call for meetings April 6-7. Despite concerns that the THAAD deployment could widen the rift in Washington-Beijing relations, Trump needs to send a clear signal to Xi that THAAD is "not an issue that is up for debate," said J. Berkshire Miller, a Tokyo-based international affairs fellow with the Council on Foreign Relations. "THAAD is a crucial deployment, and I don't see the U.S. walking back from that one inch," Miller told VOA. "The U.S. should at least have a dialogue [with the Chinese], but at the same time, I think the Trump administration should be quite firm that this is not an issue that is up for debate." Seeing THAAD as a "natural consequence" of an evolving threat from North Korea, Bonnie Glaser, a senior adviser for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), told VOA that Washington should continue to tell Beijing "this system is not aimed at China .

Only 16 percent of items that have been submitted for GRM approval for water and sanitation projects have made it past the Israeli-imposed blockade. As part of the GRM, Israeli authorities can reject or delay projects and specific items entering Gaza based on their claimed security concerns. Around 70 percent of materials needed to build water and sanitation infrastructure are estimated to be classed as “dual-use” items. Most of these essentialdual-use” items wait between 61 to 100 days before their approval is decided. Oxfam Country Director Chris Eijkemans said that for Palestinians living in the territory under tight Israeli control, just 4 percent of freshwater is safe to drink amid a “staggering escalation of the water crisis.” “The UN-brokered system is unaccountable, fundamentally flawed and gives the appearance of legitimizing Israel’s illegal blockade on Gaza, Oxfam wrote in a press release.
