French President Macron’s proposal for ‘European Army’ is an insult considering US subsidies to NATO: President Trump
Paris: US President Donald Trump expressed strong displeasure upon French President Emmanuel Macron’s proposal for a European army, leaving the United States out. A few days ago, the French President had stated in an article that Europe needed to build a ‘real European army’ to protect itself from the United States, Russia and China.
Since the last few years, the European Union (EU) has made efforts for building an independent European army, and Germany and France have taken the lead for it. Nevertheless, the United Kingdom bitterly opposed their lead and has outright rejected all the proposals presented to the EU in its regard. However, as the United Kingdom is stepping out of the bloc after Brexit, the activities for an independent European army, are gaining momentum.

DR Congo witnesses worst-ever Ebola outbreak, claims more than 200 lives
Kinshasa: – In the second outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus which hit DR Congo this year, the government recorded more than 200 deaths. The health ministry has claimed that it is the worst Ebola outbreak to have hit DR Congo in history. Given the increasing extent of the epidemic in DR Congo, the neighbouring country of Uganda has initiated preventive measures to counter the epidemic with additional screening and stocks of the vaccine doses.
The new Ebola outbreak is on a rampage in the eastern parts of DR Congo and has claimed more than 200 lives. With over 300 confirmed cases of Ebola, the number of probable cases the local officials fear may be even higher. The World Health Organisation (WHO) had raised concerns in the last month, over the situation in the virus-hit region worsening due to the ongoing rebel conflict here.

Hamas launches heavy rocket attacks over Israel; Israel counterstrikes with air raids
Jerusalem/Gaza: On Monday night, Hamas challenged Israel by launching more than 300 rockets, mortars and missiles over the Israeli borders. About 16 people were injured in the attacks. Infuriated by the attacks, the Israel military carried out crushing attacks on 60 Hamas locations in Gaza Strip. Al-Aqsa, the Hamas TV channel, was also destroyed in the Israeli attacks. Following the Hamas air attacks, it appears that Israel has prepared for a massive strike as it increased the deployment of tanks and artillery at the Gaza border.
Two days ago, the Israeli special forces in operation, entered the Gaza Strip and eliminated seven people including a Hamas commander. The Israeli defence chief announced that the operation was undertaken to eliminate the Hamas commander who was a significant threat to Israel’s security. Nevertheless, accusing the Israeli action of violating the ceasefire, Hamas had threatened to make a strong retaliation.

Israeli Defence Minister resigns calling Israel’s ceasefire with Hamas as “surrendering to terror”
Jerusalem: The conflict that was raging for past two days between Hamas and Israel, with the former launching 400 rocket attacks, followed by Israel’s crushing air raids, seems to have quietened down. Although a ceasefire is in effect between the two sides, there is a major political turmoil in Israel over the issue. The Israeli Defence Minister, Avigdor Lieberman has resigned saying Israel’s acceptance of the ceasefire amounts to surrender before the terrorists.
By stepping up the military deployment of ground forces and tanks near the Gaza border, Israel had shown signs of a massive response against Hamas’s rocket attacks. A major conflict was, therefore, being predicted given the developments. However, despite the continuous attacks from the Gaza Strip, the Israeli security committee announced a ceasefire on Tuesday afternoon to everyone’s surprise.

Guided bullets, exoskeleton, killer insects, space warplanes: US military to have DARPA’s sci-fi weapons
London – The US military could soon be possessing science fiction weapons much like the ones appearing in Hollywood movies. The United States has developed guided bullet for the sniper rifles akin the guided missiles, an exoskeleton which enhances the soldier’s physical capabilities turning them into ‘super soldiers’ at the battlefield, insects infected with engineered viruses, drones that can track or target submarines, phantom planes for space wars and systems to detect a nuclear or radioactive strike. These super-advanced weapons and technologies are believed to be soon inducted into the US military.
The US’s highly confidential and controversial defence laboratory, the ‘Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’ or the DARPA has developed and tested the weapons and technologies. DARPA has created guided bullets and killer insects using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The guided bullets hit the target with exact precision. DARPA claims that the bullets successfully hit the target determined by the sniper rifle laser.

North Korea tests new ‘Ultramodern Tactical weapon’ despite denuclearisation promises; strong reaction expected from US
Seoul – After assurances of stopping the development of nuclear weapons and missiles, North Korea has now announced to have tested an ultramodern tactical weapon. The weapon was tested in the presence of the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. The North Korean regime has claimed that the tactical weapons would prove to be a ‘wall of steel’ for the nation. A few days ago, US think tank had alleged that the North Korean underground missile bases were still operational.
In the month of June, the US President had initiated talks with the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for negotiations at the Singapore Summit. During the summit, the US felt confident about North Korea conforming to Trump’s denuclearisation demands. North Korea also responded positively in line to the US statement by destroying its nuclear testing base and lowering its deployment at its borders. Nevertheless, its covert activities have come to the fore in the past few weeks.

Indian PM visits Maldives to attend swearing-in of newly elected President
Male: Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, who won the presidential elections in the Maldives after defeating pro-China former President Abdulla Yameen, was sworn in as the President of the state. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had attended the event. The presence of the Indian Prime Minister indicates a shift in the Maldivian policy from being pro-China, to the Indian democracy, once again. It is one of the significant jolts for China in recent times.
After assuming the office, President Abdulla Yameen had initiated steps to end the democracy in the Maldives. Yameen took vengeful political actions against the opposition leaders as also the decision to place the judges under house arrest. Strong reactions emanated from the people of the Maldives against the decisions taken. A few leaders even went on to make the fervent plea to India for a military intervention to save its democracy. However, China had strongly warned India against military inventions in the Maldives stating the matter was part of the archipelago’s internal affairs. The then President Yameen was believed to have had strong backing from China.

Nearly 30,000 Afghan soldiers killed in war since 2015: President Ashraf Ghani
Kabul: Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani informed that approximately 30,000 Afghan soldiers were killed in the war with terrorists since the NATO and the United States’ militaries handed over the responsibility to the local military and security agencies in 2015. President Ghani’s disclosure endorses the reports which state, the Taliban conflict in Afghanistan is consistently intensifying. The report named ‘Costs of War’, published only last week, claimed that the Afghanistan war in the last 17 years, has taken a toll of nearly 150,000 lives.
During his election campaign, Donald Trump had announced that he would recall the military from Afghanistan if he was elected as the President. Nevertheless, after coming to power, Trump had to change his stance. He said that the picture appears different from the President’s office and that he had accepted the inevitability of the Afghanistan war against terrorists. After that, the US military increased the scope of their operations in the fight against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Even so, a significant rise in the incidents of the Taliban targeting the Afghani military and security agencies was also observed in the same period.
