These are some of the headlines we are tracking for you in this episode of On the News Line:
Tensions between Turkey, Iraq
Tensions continue to rise between the two neighbors over Ankara’s threat to send troops to the Daesh-occupied Iraqi city of Mosul. The Turkish government has insisted that it should participate in the battle to liberate Mosul. Iraq has rebuffed the offer, saying Turkey is not needed inside Iraq. Ankara has also said it plans to send 30 tanks to the border with Iraq as part of the plan.
On November 2, 1917, then British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour issued a letter that set the stage for installing the Israeli regime in Palestine. The letter, known as the Balfour Declaration, pledged to help establish a homeland for the Jewish people on Palestinian territory. A campaign demanding that Britain formally apologize for supporting the creation of Israel in the Middle East more than a century ago is growing in popularity. A new parliamentary petition has already been launched to this end.
FBI zooming in on Clinton
With the US presidential election just around the corner, the controversies surrounding both candidates still remain. The Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, is now facing an open war with the FBI, which is looking into a foundation she has established with her husband. The federal agents want to know whether the Clinton Foundation has been involved in a series of alleged financial crimes or influence peddling. A former FBI official has come out and called the Clintons a crime family. And this could be a promise that trouble is ahead for Trump's rival.
