The US wants to ensure the enduring defeat of IS, counter Iran's influence and help end the civil war.

The Islamic State said its fighters struck a market in Iraq this week, killing at least 27 people in the first major attack since the country declared victory over the terrorist group.

Five Israelis and a Bulgarian were murdered in Hezbollah bomb attack.

The U.N. agency that aids Palestinian refugees is essential to their survival but has long been criticized for perpetuating the problem.

In a speech, the secretary of state said American forces must stay engaged to prevent the extremists’ return and to keep President Bashar al-Assad in check.
