2021.05.29 國際新聞導讀-以色列未來黨與右派黨之輪替執政協議達成,納唐雅胡準備下台去面對司法考驗,亞塞拜然與亞美尼亞軍事衝突再起、敘利亞總統阿塞德連任7年任期 伊朗稱阿薩德獲勝是和平的“重要一步” 俄羅斯稱讚敘利亞獨裁者的“決定性勝利”,拒絕西方對虛假投票的指責 由代理商和TOI工作人員今天,下午 3:46 0 2021 年 5 月 27 日,在選舉前一天,現任總統巴沙爾·阿薩德(Bashar Assad)獲得第四個任期,敘利亞人在首都大馬士革街頭慶祝時揮舞著國旗並攜帶總統的大幅畫像(LOUAI BESHARA / AFP ) 敘利亞政府的主要盟友伊朗和俄羅斯週五祝賀巴沙爾·阿薩德總統在一場被廣泛視為虛假選舉的選舉中取得壓倒性勝利。 週四晚間公佈的官方結果使阿薩德在周三在政府控制地區舉行的選舉中獲得超過 95% 的選票,從而延長了他對權力的第四個任期。 德黑蘭稱這是在十年內戰後恢復和平的“重大一步”。 “伊朗伊斯蘭共和國祝賀阿薩德總統和堅韌的敘利亞人民在這次選舉中取得決定性勝利,”伊朗外交部在一份聲明中說。 “選舉的成功組織和敘利亞人民的大規模投票標誌著在建立和平方面邁出了一大步。” 阿薩德的另一個重要盟友俄羅斯週五也向他表示祝賀,稱讚他的“決定性勝利”是“加強……內部穩定的重要一步”。 外交部補充說:“我們認為選舉是阿拉伯敘利亞共和國的主權事務,是加強其內部穩定的重要一步。” 敘利亞人在阿勒頗街頭慶祝,因為巴沙爾·阿薩德總統於 2021 年 5 月 27 日下旬第四次當選為飽受戰爭蹂躪的敘利亞總統(法新社) 有爭議的投票擴大了阿薩德的控制權,是自長達十年的內戰開始以來的第二次內戰,這場衝突已導致388,000多人喪生,數百萬人流離失所,並使該國的基礎設施遭受重創。 大選前夕,美國、英國、法國、德國和意大利表示投票“既不自由也不公平”,敘利亞支離破碎的反對派稱這是一場“鬧劇”。 俄羅斯一直是敘利亞政權在衝突中的關鍵盟友,其對2015年9月戰爭的干預被視為扭轉了戰鬥的潮流,對阿薩德有利。 2018 年 5 月 17 日,俄羅斯總統弗拉基米爾·普京(左)在俄羅斯索契黑海度假勝地會晤期間與敘利亞總統巴沙爾·阿薩德握手。(米哈伊爾·克里門捷夫、人造衛星、克里姆林宮泳池照片來自美聯社) 外交部將西方對選舉有效性提出質疑的聲明描述為“另一次試圖干涉敘利亞內政以破壞其穩定的企圖”。 “沒有人有權要求敘利亞人在什麼時候以及在什麼條件下選舉他們的國家元首,”它說。 Assad election win hailed by Iran as ‘big step’ for peace Russia lauds ‘decisive victory’ by Syrian dictator, rejects Western accusations of sham vote By AGENCIES and TOI STAFFToday, 3:46 pm 0 Syrians wave national flags and carry a large portrait of their president as they celebrate in the streets of the capital Damascus, a day after an election set to give the current President Bashar Assad a fourth term, on May 27, 2021 (LOUAI BESHARA / AFP) Key Syrian government allies Iran and Russia congratulated President Bashar Assad Friday on his landslide victory in an election widely seen as a sham. Official results announced late Thursday gave Assad more than 95 percent of the vote in Wednesday’s election held in government-held areas, extending his grip on power for a fourth term. Tehran described it as a “big step” towards restoring peace after a decade of civil war. “The Islamic Republic of Iran congratulates President Assad and the resilient Syrian people on their decisive victory in this election,” the foreign ministry said in a statement. “The successful organization of the election and the massive turnout by the Syrian people mark a big step in establishing peace.” Assad’s other key ally Russia also congratulated him Friday, hailing his “decisive victory” as an “important step towards strengthening… internal stability. “We view the elections as a sovereign affair of the Syrian Arab Republic and an important step towards strengthening its internal stability,” the foreign ministry added. Syrians celebrate in the streets of Aleppo as President Bashar Assad was re-elected for a fourth term as president of war-ravaged Syria, late on May 27, 2021 (AFP) The controversial vote extending Assad’s stranglehold on power was the second since the start of a decade-long civil conflict that has killed more than 388,000 people, displaced millions and battered the country’s infrastructure. On the eve of the election, the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Italy said the poll was “neither free nor fair,” and Syria’s fragmented opposition has called it a “farce.” Russia has been a key ally to the Syrian regime in the conflict, and its intervention in the war in September 2015 was seen as having turned the tide of the fighting in Assad’s favor.

(Mikhail Klimentyev, Sputnik, Kremlin Pool Photo via AP) The foreign ministry described Western statements calling into question the validity of the elections as “another attempt to interfere in the internal affairs of Syria with the aim of destabilizing it.” “No one has the right to dictate to the Syrians when and under what conditions they should elect their head of state,” it said. 在以色列國防軍聲稱他感染了新冠病毒後,真主黨副手說納斯魯拉“很好” Naim Qassem 說恐怖領袖只需要 2-3 天就能康復,如果不繼續進行充滿咳嗽的公開演講會引發更多問題 通過TOI人員和亞倫BOXERMAN今天,上午 12:43 0 真主黨領袖哈桑·納斯拉拉(Hasan Nasrallah)在2021年5月25日的地址中咳嗽(Twitter屏幕截圖) 真主黨首領哈桑·納斯魯拉(Hassan Nasrallah)的副手週四表示,在以色列國防軍官員向以色列媒體洩露軍隊對他感染冠狀病毒的評估後一天,黎巴嫩恐怖組織的領導人身體狀況良好。 最初的預測是在納斯魯拉週二通過最近的電視講話中咳嗽和喘息之後做出的,他在講話中威脅說,如果以色列襲擊耶路撒冷的聖地,就會發生“地區戰爭”。 “秘書長很好,讚美歸於上帝,”Naim Qassem 告訴黎巴嫩媒體。“他最近幾天病倒了,需要兩三天才能康復;但因為愛他的人都在等他 5 月 25 日的演講,他不露面就會引起質疑。” 以色列國防軍的評估似乎主要基於間接證據,因為根據以色列第 13 頻道的說法,納斯魯拉實際上尚未接受 COVID-19 的測試。 在以色列國防軍佔領該地區 18 年後,以色列國防軍從黎巴嫩南部撤出 21 週年之際,以及以色列和哈馬斯恐怖組織在加沙地帶及其周圍地區進行了為期 11 天的戰鬥幾天后發表了講話。在以色列警察對聖殿山發生的騷亂作出有力回應後,後者向耶路撒冷發射了多枚火箭。 真主黨副秘書長 Naim Qassem(圖片來源:AP/Grace Kassab) 以色列軍方官員嘲笑納斯魯拉的講話,後者在鏡頭前顯得蒼白無力,稱這是一個錯誤。 在以色列和哈馬斯的衝突期間,真主黨的影子隱約可見,它有可能釋放其導彈庫——比哈馬斯的強大得多——以支持巴勒斯坦人。但伊朗支持的組織基本上保持觀望。 儘管真主黨沒有積極參與戰鬥,但在加沙戰役期間,黎巴嫩南部向以色列發射了三連串火箭彈,以色列認為這至少是真主黨默許的。 為了聲援加沙,在與以色列的邊界沿線每天都發生抗議活動,包括黎巴嫩真主黨成員和巴勒斯坦人的抗議活動。當以色列向試圖突破動盪邊界的抗議者開火以反擊時,一名真主黨成員被打死。 Hezbollah deputy says Nasrallah ‘is fine’ after IDF claimed he contracted COVID Naim Qassem says terror leader just needed 2-3 days to recover and that not going forward with cough-filled public address would have raised even more questions By TOI STAFF and AARON BOXERMANToday, 12:43 am 0 Hezbollah leader Hasan Nasrallah coughs during a May 25, 2021, address (Twitter screenshot) The deputy to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said Thursday that the Lebanese terror group’s leader was in good health a day after IDF officials leaked to Israeli media the army’s assessment that he had contracted the coronavirus. The initial prognosis was made after Nasrallah coughed and wheezed his way through a recent televised address Tuesday in which he threatened “regional war” if Israel attacked holy sites in Jerusalem. “The secretary-general is fine, praise be to God,” Naim Qassem told Lebanese media. “He was struck by illness in recent days, and needed two or three days to recover; but because those who love him were waiting for his speech on May 25, his failure to appear would have raised questions.” The Israel Defense Forces’ assessment appeared to be largely based on circumstantial evidence as, according to Israel’s Channel 13, Nasrallah has not yet actually been tested for COVID-19. The speech came on the 21st anniversary of the IDF’s withdrawal from southern Lebanon, following an 18-year occupation of the area, and days after Israel and the Hamas terror group fought an 11-day battle in and around the Gaza Strip, which began when the latter fired multiple rockets toward Jerusalem after Israeli police officers responded forcefully to a riot on the Temple Mount. Hezbollah deputy secretary general Naim Qassem (photo credit: AP/Grace Kassab) Israeli military officials derided the speech by Nasrallah, who appeared pale and weak on camera, calling it a mistake. Hezbollah’s shadow loomed large during Israel and Hamas’s conflict, with the possibility it could unleash its arsenal of missiles — far more powerful than Hamas’s — in support of the Palestinians. But the Iran-backed group largely remained on the sidelines. Though Hezbollah did not play an active part in the fighting, three barrages of rockets were fired toward Israel from southern Lebanon during the Gaza battle, which Israel believes Hezbollah at least tacitly approved. Daily protests, including by members of Hezbollah and Palestinians in Lebanon, took place along the frontier with Israel in solidarity with Gaza. One Hezbollah member was killed when Israel opened fire to push back against protesters who tried to break through the volatile frontier.

By GIL HOFFMAN MAY 28, 2021 22:50 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu chats with Naftali Bennett in the Knesset (photo credit: RONEN ZVULUN/REUTERS) Advertisement Yamina leader Naftali Bennett agreed to forming a coalition government with Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid, N12 reported. The two sides agreed that Bennett will serve first as prime minister until September 2023, when Lapid will take over until November 2025, according to N12. The swearing-in ceremony is expected to take place in 10 days, following an announcement of the new government either on Saturday night or Sunday. This came following Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's attack on Bennett on Friday, accusing him of rejecting a right-wing government and instead seeking to become prime minister of a "government of the Left." In a three minute video released on social media, Netanyahu revealed that Likud and Yamina negotiators had reached what he called a far-reaching agreement, but Bennett refused to sign it. The agreement would create a coalition of 59 MKs, two less than is needed. Bennett has declined to form a minority government and urged Netanyahu to find two defectors. "Naftali Bennett is running to the Left," Netanyahu said. "This goes against all their principles and promises and everything necessary to guarantee the future of our state." Netanyahu noted that during Operation Guardian of the Walls, Bennett and his number two, MK Ayelet Shaked, ruled out a government of change. He warned that Bennett and Shaked were endangering the country, the land of Israel and the IDF. "Either it was a show or they have no principles," he said. Netanyahu said it was not too late to reject Lapid's offer to replace him. Earlier on Friday prior to the report, Lapid said that despite his meeting the day before with Bennett, he did not know whether he would succeed in building a coalition by the time his mandate to form a government from President Rivlin will expire on Wednesday night. Lapid's meeting with Bennett raised speculation that a government of change that would replace Netanyahu was on the way. "I don't know if we'll form a government or not," Lapid wrote on Facebook. "We're leaving no stone unturned, doing everything we can but it doesn't just depend on us." Lapid said what he did know was that even if he had many more seats than the 17 Yesh Atid won, he would try to form the unity government he was trying to build now with the same partners, from the right, left and center, which he said sends a message that different sectors of society do not hate one another and want to work for the greater good. "Even if Yesh Atid had 40 seats, even if Netanyahu wasn't there, it would still be the government we need," Lapid wrote. "It's the government the people of Israel need and the State of Israel needs, we need it like air to breathe." He said Israel needs a government in which Bennett and [Meretz leader] Nitzan Horovitz work together to improve the healthcare system, [New Hope chairman] Gideon Saar and Labor head Merav Michaeli work together to reduce social gaps and [secularist Yisrael Beytenu leader] Avigdor Liberman and [religious Zionist Blue and White minister] Chili Tropper find solutions together that allow Israel to be a Jewish state that respects the principle that religion cannot be coercive. "I have reservations, of course, including the number of ministers that it looks like we'll have, and the issues we've decided not to touch in the first year or two until we can bring about some stability," he wrote. "But still given all the options, this is the one I'd choose. I'd choose it because we need a government with religious and secular together, where left and right combine with a large national liberal centrist bloc, where Jews and Arabs who think and say loudly that they believe in coexistence, living here together and in the rule of law sit together." To supporters of Netanyahu, Lapid wrote that it was important to remember that in a lively democracy sometimes the leadership changes. "Compromise isn't a dirty word but the basis of shared existence," he wrote. "People who think differently from us aren't enemies and don't want to harm us (and they'll be the first ones to stand by our side against our real enemies – Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran). If we do form this government then in six months there will be people who will be surprised to discover that it hasn't made Israel less Jewish or less Zionist, it's just reduced the level of violence and anger, brought about growth and prosperity and reminded us that we're better than what we have now." Labor and Yesh Atid announced on Friday that they had finalized a coalition agreement. Labor leader Merav Michaeli is expected to be appointed transportation minister and MK Omer Bar-Lev will be public security minister, a post once held by his father, Haim Bar-Lev. The third portfolio given to Labor will be Diaspora Affairs, which Lapid had intended to merge back into the Foreign Ministry that he would head if a government is formed. Labor has not revealed its candidate for the third portfolio, but it could be MK Emilie Moatti or MK Gilad Kariv. A new department for advancing religious pluralism would be created in the ministry. The agreement includes steps to strengthen the police force, stop crime in the agricultural sector and fight traffic accidents. Michaeli would be a member of the judicial selection committee. Six judges are set to be appointed to the Supreme Court over the next four years.

By JERUSALEM POST STAFF MAY 28, 2021 19:11 F-35 aircraft (photo credit: IAI) Advertisement Spy agencies in the United States have expressed concern regarding the sale of the highly sophisticated F-35 fighter jet to the United Arab Emirates due to their ties to China, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday. The concern came following two planes belonging to the Chinese military that landed at a UAE airport and delivered unknown materials to Abu Dhabi, based on intelligence reports cited by American officials. American officials also cited close cooperation between the UAE and China as another reason for concern when speaking to WSJ.  The US agreed to sell F-35s to the UAE in light of the August 2020 Abraham Accords, an agreement brokered by Washington that established normalized relations between Israel and the Arab nations of the UAE and Bahrain, with Sudan and Morocco later following suit. In response to the US concerns, the UAE's ambassador to the US said to WSJ his country has a long track record of ensuring the protection of US military technology. While the deal was originally organized under the Trump administration, US President Joe Biden has indicated that he intends to follow through with the deal, but the exact terms are still being discussed between the parties. Another unnamed official said told WSJ that the US is seeking to influence the conditions by setting parameters on a few issues, namely Israel's qualitative military edge, a longstanding policy of the Washington, in addition to ensuring the non-transfer of F-35 and drone technology to China, as well as restrictions on the equipment's use in the ongoing conflicts in Yemen and Libya. A third official speaking to WSJ said that the establishment of a Chinese base in the UAE would halt the deal. Growing ties between China and the Middle East comes as the US continues to withdraw military personnel from the region as part Washington's strategic shift to focusing on East Asia, raising concerns among traditional US allies, including Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and other Gulf countries in light of Iran's expanding influence. Besides China's recent transfer of unknown materials, Beijing has worked to increase cooperation with the UAE in other areas, such as trade, non-military technology and finance. 阿塞拜疆指責亞美尼亞通宵射擊 阿塞拜疆國防部表示,亞美尼亞軍隊從幾個方向向其在納希切萬的陣地開火,納希切萬是一個阿塞拜疆飛地,被亞美尼亞領土與阿塞拜疆其他地區隔開。 通過路透 2021 年 5 月 28 日 11:13 阿塞拜疆國防部發布的一段視頻中的靜態圖像顯示,阿塞拜疆武裝部隊成員在亞美尼亞和阿塞拜疆之間在納戈爾諾-卡拉巴赫領土上的不明地點發生衝突時發射大砲,這張靜態圖像來自 2020 年 9 月 28 日發布的鏡頭 (圖片來源:阿塞拜疆國防部/路透社提供的資料) 廣告 阿塞拜疆週五表示,當阿塞拜疆陣地在一夜之間遭到亞美尼亞軍隊的砲擊時,其一名士兵受傷,亞美尼亞否認了這一指控。 阿塞拜疆國防部在一份聲明中說,亞美尼亞部隊向其納赫齊萬(Nakhchivan)陣地的多個方向開火,阿塞拜疆飛地被亞美尼亞領土與阿塞拜疆其他地區隔開。 它說,受傷的士兵得到了急救並被送往醫院。 據塔斯社報導,亞美尼亞國防部否認了巴庫的說法。 星期四,阿塞拜疆俘虜了六名亞美尼亞軍人,這是一場醞釀中的邊界爭端的最新轉折。 在去年 9 月至 11 月的六週戰鬥中,阿塞拜疆的納戈爾諾-卡拉巴赫地區及其周邊地區的阿塞拜疆軍隊將亞美尼亞族軍隊趕出他們自 1990 年代以來控制的大片領土。俄國人最終促成了停火。 Azerbaijan accuses Armenia of overnight shooting The Azeri defense ministry said Armenian forces had fired from several directions at its positions in Nakhchivan, an Azeri enclave separated from the rest of Azerbaijan by Armenian territory.

Report: Bennett, Lapid reach agreement on forming coalition to oust Netanyahu Unsourced TV claim says announcement expected in coming days, but Yamina may not have all MKs on board, as Likud attempts to portray right-wing party as propping up left By TOI STAFFToday, 10:50 pm 0 Yamina party leader Naftali Bennett (left) and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid during the swearing-in ceremony of the 24th Knesset, at the Knesset building in Jerusalem, April 6, 2021. (Marc Israel Sellem/Pool) Yamina leader Naftali Bennett has agreed to create a governing coalition with Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid, according to an unsourced report Friday on a deal that could pave the way for the ouster of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after over a decade in power. The report from Channel 12 news came as Lapid and Netanyahu were both scrambling to line up support for a government by a June 2 deadline, with Bennett potentially holding the keys to their political fates. “I intend to enter talks and efforts to form a government that we will both head,” Bennett told Lapid Friday, according to Channel 12, which reported that an agreement had been reached despite the message’s seemingly non-committal nature. Bennett will announce the agreement to the public in the coming days and the government will be sworn in as early as June 8, according to the network. According to the report, Bennett would serve as prime minister for the first two years and three months of the rotation government, before Lapid takes over in September 2023 for the last two years and three months. It said an announcement would come after Shabbat on Saturday night, or on Sunday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks in Caeasaria on May 28, 2021. (Screen capture/Twitter) The channel noted that Yamina No. 2 Ayelet Shaked could still torpedo the deal, fearing a right-wing backlash from voters who prefer a government headed by the conservative Netanyahu than one backed and eventually headed by the centrist Lapid. Channel 13 said that Yamina MK Nir Orbach was also on the fence. Netanyahu appeared to attempt to play into those fears earlier Friday, releasing a video in which he said Bennett had agreed to join a rotational government with him, but had reneged to throw his lot in with what he described as a “left-wing government.” Channel 12 did not give a source for its information. According to the Kan broadcaster, Likud has been pushing the idea that it believes a Lapid-Bennett agreement is a done deal and will be announced Saturday. Yamina and Bennett did not respond to the report, which came out just as Shabbat was beginning in Israel, when many religious Jews refrain from using technology.

Report: Bennett, Lapid reach agreement on forming coalition to oust Netanyahu Unsourced TV claim says announcement expected in coming days, but Yamina may not have all MKs on board, as Likud attempts to portray right-wing party as propping up left By TOI STAFFToday, 10:50 pm 0 Yamina party leader Naftali Bennett (left) and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid during the swearing-in ceremony of the 24th Knesset, at the Knesset building in Jerusalem, April 6, 2021. (Marc Israel Sellem/Pool) Yamina leader Naftali Bennett has agreed to create a governing coalition with Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid, according to an unsourced report Friday on a deal that could pave the way for the ouster of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after over a decade in power. The report from Channel 12 news came as Lapid and Netanyahu were both scrambling to line up support for a government by a June 2 deadline, with Bennett potentially holding the keys to their political fates. “I intend to enter talks and efforts to form a government that we will both head,” Bennett told Lapid Friday, according to Channel 12, which reported that an agreement had been reached despite the message’s seemingly non-committal nature. Bennett will announce the agreement to the public in the coming days and the government will be sworn in as early as June 8, according to the network. According to the report, Bennett would serve as prime minister for the first two years and three months of the rotation government, before Lapid takes over in September 2023 for the last two years and three months. It said an announcement would come after Shabbat on Saturday night, or on Sunday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks in Caeasaria on May 28, 2021. (Screen capture/Twitter) The channel noted that Yamina No. 2 Ayelet Shaked could still torpedo the deal, fearing a right-wing backlash from voters who prefer a government headed by the conservative Netanyahu than one backed and eventually headed by the centrist Lapid. Channel 13 said that Yamina MK Nir Orbach was also on the fence. Netanyahu appeared to attempt to play into those fears earlier Friday, releasing a video in which he said Bennett had agreed to join a rotational government with him, but had reneged to throw his lot in with what he described as a “left-wing government.” Channel 12 did not give a source for its information. According to the Kan broadcaster, Likud has been pushing the idea that it believes a Lapid-Bennett agreement is a done deal and will be announced Saturday. Yamina and Bennett did not respond to the report, which came out just as Shabbat was beginning in Israel, when many religious Jews refrain from using technology. However, Haaretz reported he would make an announcement on Saturday night.
