The Pentagon has responded to a globally-released ‘Kill List’, asking law enforcement to give extra protection for military personnel whose personal information was released.
CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the Pentagon spent the weekend notifying the soldiers who appeared on the list, and urged city police departments and military police to increase patrol in the neighborhoods where the targeted live.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) published the list days ago, a report that contained names, photos, and home addresses of U.S. Armed Forces personnel, causing alarm in cities potentially at high-risk.
Jerusalem (CNN)The Israeli military conducted airstrikes Sunday night in the area between Israel and Syria, targeting a group of militants allegedly trying to plant a bomb on the Israeli border.
The Israel Defense Forces said the airstrikes were carried out in the occupied Golan Heights against four militants who crossed into the area from Syria.
“A group of armed terrorists approached the border with an explosive device, which was intended to be detonated against IDF forces,” the Israeli military said.
The airstrikes prevented the bombing, the military said.

8. I have been giving a lot of thought to a certain process I have seen repeated in Europe and North America and hope to either write an article about it or encourage one of our friends and colleagues to do so. Meanwhile, I would very much appreciate reading reader’s thoughts on this image which speaks to the idea in a general way.
8. Ottawa’s AM talk radio station CFRA had a show with its star host, Lowell Green on the issue of Khadr’s bail approval. There were some interesting calls. Even the people who support Omar were revealing on how a certain portion of the population thinks. Good listening for background when doing dishes etc.
