By Rupam Jain and Qadir Sediqi KABUL (Reuters) - The Afghan Taliban said their three-day Eid ceasefire, which ends on Sunday, proved the unity of their movement and its "wide national support" as the presidential palace extended its own ceasefire with the militants by 10 days. Taliban fighters headed into cities across Afghanistan over the weekend as they celebrated their Eid cessation of hostilities with feasts, hugs and selfies, raising questions about what happens when their ceasefire ends at midnight (1930 GMT) on Sunday. "The announcement (of the ceasefire), implementation and the wide national support and welcome of the Mujahideen by the people proves that the demands of the Islamic Emirate and the nation are identical – all want the withdrawal of foreign invaders and establishment of an Islamic government," they said.

Israel strikes at launchers of burning kites from Gaza Strip

Top Stories - Sun, 06/17/2018 - 08:55

The Israeli military said its aircraft struck a vehicle early Sunday belonging to someone who sent burning kites into Israel from Gaza. No one was injured in the strike, but it marks an escalation in Israel's response to a phenomenon that has wreaked havoc on agriculture in southern Israel in recent weeks. Burning kites set fields ablaze in more than a dozen locations on a hot, windy, dry Saturday. Gazans began flying kites with burning rags attached to them during the mass protests against the Israeli and Egyptian blockade of the territory. Israeli troops have fired on the protesters, killing more than 100 since the weekly demonstrations began in March. The Israeli military says militants have used the protests as cover to carry out attacks and to try to breach the border fence. The Islamic militant group Hamas, which rules Gaza, has led the protests. Israel says it holds Hamas responsible for the fires. While Israel has been mostly successful in thwarting militant infiltration attempts and rocket fire, it has struggled to stop the low-tech kites drifting into its territory. A parliamentary committee last week said the fires have destroyed more than 6,000 acres of land in recent weeks, causing some £1.5 million in damages. Israel says it plans to deduct from tax funds it collects for the Palestinians to compensate farmers. A fire burns in scrubland in Israel near the Gaza Strip, in an area where Palestinians have been causing blazes by flying kites and balloons loaded with flammable material Credit: AMIR COHEN/REUTERS The military says its drones have been able to shoot down more than 90 per cent of the kites and flaming balloons, and that it will continue targeting them. Cabinet Minister Naftali Bennett compared the kites to rockets, and said the response should be the same. "We should not wait until Israeli citizens are hurt and only then wake up," he said. In the West Bank, meanwhile, Israeli police evicted Jewish settlers from 10 homes they had built in violation of Israeli law. Israel captured the West Bank along with east Jerusalem in the 1967 war and today about 600,000 settlers live in those areas. Most of the international community considers settlements to be either illegal or illegitimate. Israel's Supreme Court often rules that structures built illegally have to be evacuated and demolished. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said 11 officers were wounded in scuffles and that police arrested six protesters for violence.
