India-Pakistan
Blast outside Israel’s New Delhi embassy damages cars; security raised worldwide
[IsraelTimes] A blast outside the Israeli embassy in New Delhi on Friday damaged cars but did not cause injuries, police said.

Israeli authorities were treating the earth-shattering kaboom as a suspected terror attack aimed at the embassy, The Times of Israel has learned, and was stepping up security precautions at missions around the world.

"The assessment is that this was an attempted attack aimed at the embassy this evening," Ambassador Ron Malka later told Channel 12 News, adding that the blast went off "a few dozen meters from the embassy walls."

Iraq
1 child killed, 4 others wounded in bombing in Jawala
[NRTtv] SULAIMANI — One child was killed and four others were wounded in a bomb blast in Jalawla’s Wahda neighborhood early on Friday (January 29), according to a security source.

The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told NRT that Islamic State (ISIS) was to blame, but that it had likely planted the device years ago.

UNICEF’s acting Representative in Iraq Paula Bulancea on Thursday expressed concern about several recent incidents in Iraq and the Kurdistan Region in which at least seven children were killed or wounded.

“Children and adolescents have the right to safety at all times, free from all forms of violence” under international law, Bulancea said.

In December, 2017, the Iraqi Security Forces, in cooperation with the Peshmerga and the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) and aided by Coalition airstrikes, declared victory over ISIS. Since then, the militant group has resorted to guerrilla hit-and-run tactics, but remains a potent threat in some parts of the country.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Governor of southern Syria town assassinated by unknown assailants
[AlMasdar] Mamdouh Mafalani was heading to work in the eastern Daraa countryside when he was assassinated, the state news agency SANA cited a police source as saying.

The governor was admitted to the Izraa Hospital but succumbed to his wounds, the hospital’s director, Ahmad Ghazali, reportedly said.

Since 2011, Syria has been experiencing a period of instability, with the government of Bashir al-Assad battling a number of opposition groups and terrorist organizations.

At the moment, the country’s authorities are primarily focused on the political settlement of the continuous crisis as well as the reconstruction of Syria and the return of refugees.

Situation in southern Syria deteriorates amid escalation of violence
[AlMasdar] The Daraa Governorate has witnessed a wave of violence to start the new year, amid the mobilization of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops to several areas across this region of southern Syria.

According to the latest reports from the Daraa Governorate, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops are on high alert after a string of coordinated attacks launched by sleeper cells belonging to the Free Syrian Army
... the more palatable version of the Syrian insurgency, heavily influenced by the Moslem Brüderbund...
(FSA) and their allies.

These events in Daraa followed the liquidation of a town’s governor by a group of assailants, believed to reconciled rebels from the Free Syrian Army.

This latest violence has prompted the Russian Armed Forces to get involved in southern Syria, as they attempt to negotiate a peace agreement between the reconciled rebels and Syrian Arab Army.

However,
women are made to be loved, not understood...
all attempts to ease the tensions in southern Syria have failed thus far, with all parties refusing to yield to the demands of the other.

Among the demands from the Syrian government is the expulsion of FSA commanders accused of plotting attacks. According to a report from Daraa, the government is seeking to transport these commanders to the Idlib Governorate, similar to the previous arrangement made with the FSA and Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
(HTS) fighters in the Summer of 2018.
