BEIRUT (AP) — Jordan says it is discussing ways to expedite Egyptian natural gas shipments via its territory and Syria to Lebanon, which is dealing with a grueling energy crisis.
Prime Minister Bisher Khasawneh arrives in Beirut today, the first foreign official to visit Lebanon’s new prime minister who took office earlier this month. Khasawneh says Jordan is committed to support Lebanon’s stability.
“We will not hold back our capabilities, we’ll respond with all we can for our brothers in Lebanon,” Khasawneh says in a press conference with Lebanon’s Prime Minister Najib Mikati. “We discussed ways to expedite Lebanon receiving Egyptian gas to help some of the energy challenges and electricity sector.”
He says there are efforts to provide Lebanon with some electricity from Jordan. He offered no details and said detailed discussions will follow.

MANAMA, Bahrain — Foreign Minister Yair Lapid met with Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa at the royal palace in Bahrain Thursday afternoon, the first public meeting between the king and an Israeli official.
“The leadership and inspiration of the king has led to real cooperation, and this meeting sets the course for the future of our relations,” Lapid said at the meeting.
The sit-down with the king came after Lapid met with Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the prime minister and crown prince of Bahrain, at his palace in Manama.
“Thank you for the opportunity to be here today, and to take this step together in building our relations,” said Lapid, “in a model of coexistence and cooperation between cultures and between faiths.”
It was the crown prince’s first public meeting with an Israeli official.

Lapid’s first meeting of the day was with his Bahraini counterpart, Abdullatif Al Zayani, whom he had met for the first time in Rome in June. They discussed ways of developing bilateral ties further, especially in security, economic, and civil society.

Speaking at a press conference alongside Lapid after their meeting, Zayani stressed Bahrain’s desire to “broaden and deepen cooperation across a range of sectors,” and says that Bahrain has chosen “peace and dialogue as a strategic option.”
“Your visit builds on the considerable progress we have made over the last year, and underlines our joint desire to spread peace and stability across the Middle East,” he said, reaffirming “Bahrain’s genuine commitment to building warm peace and cooperation with Israel.”
Zayani then turned to the Palestinian issue, emphasizing the “crucial importance” of a two-state solution that reflects “the rights, interests and aspirations of all parties.”
“Bahrain continues to call on all sides and the international community to achieve this goal,” he said.
Lapid called for deepening “economic, security, diplomatic, and civilian” ties.
“We will do everything to turn the partnership between Bahrain and Israel into a harmony, of cultures and religions,” Lapid said at the press conference. “And primarily, a harmony between people.”
“We are both tough peoples,” said the foreign minister. “We made life flourish in the heart of the desert.”

Alluding to the shared concern over the Iranian threat, Lapid continued: “Our opportunities are shared. Our threats are also shared, and they aren’t far from here.”
Lapid said the global battle today was between “a culture of life, against a culture of death and destruction,” returning to a familiar theme of his.
“Together with our friends in the Gulf, we are leading a brave coalition of moderates,” he said. “A coalition that is looking forward and creating a prosperous future of stability and tolerance.”
Asked by a Bahraini journalist about Israel’s commitment to a two-state solution, Lapid said he thought it was unfeasible for now but that he is “a devoted supporter of the two-state solution. I think it’s the right solution for the people of Israel and for the Palestinian people as well.”
He said that he supports improving the standard of living of the Palestinians in the meantime, and “doing no harm.”
Lapid landed in Manama on Thursday morning for the first ministerial visit to the island kingdom since bilateral relations were formally established last year.
He also signed framework agreements on water, environment and sports, among other areas, and was set to open Israel’s embassy in Manama.
Lapid was received on the tarmac by al-Zayani.

Lapid is the first Israeli foreign minister to visit Bahrain. In 1994, Environmental Affairs Minister Yossi Sarid traveled to the kingdom to participate in regional talks and meet with Bahrain’s foreign minister.
Since becoming foreign minister in June, Lapid has also visited the United Arab Emirates and Morocco, two countries that Israel has normalized relations with over the past year.
The first commercial flight between Manama and Tel Aviv also took off for Israel Thursday morning shortly after Lapid landed in Bahrain. Passengers include the heads of Gulf Air and a Jewish chef named Alex, who owns a restaurant in Bahrain and is flying to Isael to see his mother and two sisters.
The foreign minister is accompanied on his trip by Foreign Ministry Director General Alon Ushpiz and Deputy Director General for Middle Eastern Affairs Oded Yossef.
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met on Sunday in New York with both Zayani and UAE Foreign Minister Khalifa al-Marar on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly. Bennett told Zayani that he was looking forward to meeting with Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa at some point in the future.

Earlier this month, longtime diplomat Eitan Na’eh was tapped to serve as Israel’s ambassador in Manama. The nomination of Na’eh — who is still serving as an envoy to the United Arab Emirates pending his confirmation — came on the same day that Bahraini Ambassador to Israel Khaled Yousef al-Jalahmah met Lapid in the Knesset and presented the foreign minister with his credentials.
Two weeks later, Jalahma officially presented his credentials to President Isaac Herzog, a day before the one-year anniversary of the signing of the Abraham Accords, which established relations between Israel and several Arab countries, among them Bahrain.

與此同時，在首都喀布爾，塔利班開槍驅散要求平等權利的婦女集會，而紅十字國際聯合會 (IFRC) 地區負責人警告說，阿富汗正滑入一場嚴重的“重大人道主義危機”。即將到來的冬天和嚴重的財政短缺。
塔利班總理哈桑·阿洪德 (Hasan Akhund) 在此之前發布了塔利班官員最近的公開聲明，暗示了改善組織和元帥戰士的計劃。它說，居住在私人住宅中的屬於激進組織國防、內政和情報機構的塔利班成員需要“向全國各地的軍事基地報告”。
阿富汗軍隊在 8 月的閃電戰期間放棄了大部分陣地或向塔利班投降，使塔利班戰士也可以接管軍事基地。
據一位不願透露姓名的目擊者稱，其他參加 Kart-e-Char 社區抗議活動的婦女後來被告知要回家，因為她擔心塔利班會報復。塔利班官員 Mawlawi Nasratullah 後來告訴記者，婦女沒有要求集會許可。

自接管以來，塔利班暴力驅散婦女集會，要求不要剝奪她們過去 20 年在阿富汗獲得的權利。
當他們最後一次統治這個國家是在 1990 年代，塔利班強加了他們對伊斯蘭教法或伊斯蘭教法的嚴厲解釋，將婦女驅逐到自己的家中，並剝奪了她們受教育、工作和公共生活的權利。
紅十字與紅新月運動國際聯合會呼籲提供 3600 萬瑞士法郎（3800 萬美元），以繼續資助阿富汗 16 個省的衛生診所、緊急救援和其他服務。
週三，聯合國發言人 Stephane Dujarric 要求捐助者為一項 6.06 億美元的緊急呼籲快速籌集資金，該呼籲僅獲得 22% 的資金，以在今年剩餘時間內幫助 1100 萬阿富汗人。
自 8 月中旬塔利班接管以來，世界銀行和國際貨幣基金組織已暫停向喀布爾付款，而美國則凍結了阿富汗中央銀行在美國賬戶中持有的數十億美元資產。根據世界銀行的一份報告，外國援助以前佔阿富汗公共支出的近 75%。

Taliban order their fighters to leave Afghan homes they seized
Islamist insurgents fire shots in the air to break up small rally held by women in Kabul calling for equal access to education

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Taliban on Thursday ordered their fighters to leave private homes that they had taken over during last month’s blitz when the group seized control of Afghanistan, an apparent effort to impose order among Taliban ranks.
Meanwhile, in the capital of Kabul, the Taliban fired shots to disperse a women’s rally demanding equal rights, while the regional chief for the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) warned that Afghanistan was sliding into a deep “major humanitarian crisis” with the coming winter and severe financial shortfalls.
The order by Taliban Prime Minister Hasan Akhund followed recent public statements by Taliban officials hinting at plans to improve organization and marshal fighters. It said that Taliban members belonging to the militant group’s defense, interior and intelligence agencies who are living in private homes need to “report back to military bases” across the country.
In recent weeks, the Taliban abandoned their traditional, civilian dress and donned military fatigues to project an air of authority. Bilal Karimi, a Taliban security official, confirmed the directive to The Associated Press.
The Afghan army abandoned most of its positions or surrendered to the Taliban during the August blitz, allowing Taliban fighters to take over military bases as well.
In Kabul on Thursday, the Taliban fired shots to disperse a small rally of six women outside a local school, demanding equal rights to education. They confiscated posters held by the women that read: “Do not burn our books!”
Other women coming to join the protest in the Kart-e-Char neighborhood were later told to go home, according to a witness who spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing Taliban reprisal. Mawlawi Nasratullah, a Taliban official, later told reporters that women had not asked for permission to rally.

Since their takeover, the Taliban have violently dispersed rallies by women demanding that the rights they had gained in the past 20 years in Afghanistan not be taken away.
When they last ruled the country in the 1990s, the Taliban had imposed their harsh interpretation of Islamic law or Sharia, banishing women to their homes and denying them the right to education, work and a public life.
At a press conference in Kabul, Alexander Matheou, IFRC’s regional director, predicted “extremely difficult few months” ahead as temperatures drop, compounding food shortages from drought and poverty. Cuts to health services put many vulnerable Afghans, particularly in rural areas, at risk, he added.
The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is appealing for 36 million Swiss Francs ($38 million) to continue funding health clinics, emergency relief, and other services across Afghanistan’s 16 provinces.
On Wednesday, United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric asked donors to fast-track funding for a $606 million flash appeal that is only 22 percent funded, to help 11 million Afghans for the remainder of the year.
“There needs to be some solution to the financial flows into Afghanistan to ensure that at least salaries can be paid, and that essential supplies, power and water being two of them, can be procured,” Matheou said.
Since the Taliban takeover in mid-August, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have paused disbursements to Kabul, while the United States froze billons of dollars in assets held in American accounts by the Afghan Central Bank. Foreign aid previously accounted for nearly 75% of Afghanistan’s public expenditure, according to a World Bank report.
Cuts to healthcare have resulted in 2,500 health facilities no longer working, and over 20,000 health staff, 7,000 of them women, no longer being paid, said Matheou as he concluded a five-day visit to the country.
The international community is divided over the issue of resuming aid to Afghanistan, as the world waits to see whether the Taliban will again impose their harsh rule.

China, however, has delivered winter supplies to Afghanistan and will soon start flying in food and other supplies as a “friendly neighbor,” the Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said on Thursday. The shipment arrived on Wednesday night.
China, which shares a narrow border with Afghanistan, has mocked the chaotic end to the US presence in the country, and said that Washington was to blame for the intensified hardships now facing the impoverished country under Taliban rule. Beijing has kept its embassy in Kabul open and established diplomatic ties with the Taliban.
Matheou said that the diplomatic missions that have remained in Kabul after the Taliban takeover have taken a pragmatic approach “to the reality as it stands now” on a Taliban-run Afghanistan. The IFRC envoy also met with representatives from Qatar, Pakistan, Turkey and Russia in Kabul.

Iran holds military drill near Azerbaijan border due to ‘Zionist presence’ there
Tehran dismisses Azerbaijan’s concerns and protests over surprise military maneuvers close to frontier, says it is a ‘question of sovereignty’

TEHRAN, Iran — Tehran on Tuesday invoked its “sovereignty” to dismiss Azerbaijan’s concerns over Iranian military exercises near their shared border.
“The drills carried out by our country in the northwest border areas… are a question of sovereignty,” Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said in a statement on the ministry website.
Tehran “will take all measures it judges necessary for its national security”, he said, adding, “Iran will not tolerate the presence of the Zionist regime near our borders” — an allusion to Azerbaijan’s relations with Israel.
Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev had criticized Tehran over the drills, calling them “a very surprising event.”
“Every country can carry out any military drill on its own territory. It’s their sovereign right. But why now, and why on our border?” he said in an interview with Turkish news agency Anadolu published on Monday.
No further details were available on the military exercises.
Fighting broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia in September last year over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region, claiming some 6,000 lives over six weeks.
A secular, Muslim-majority state, Azerbaijan has long had warm relations with Jerusalem. Baku has bought billions of dollars of weapons from Israel and provided the Jewish state with oil.
The arms deals have sparked controversy and diplomatic flareups between Israel and Armenia, Azerbaijan’s neighbor and rival.
Armenia has since 2016 accused Azerbaijan of deploying Israeli-made kamikaze drones against Armenian forces. An Azerbaijani official acknowledged using Israeli-made attack drones, including loitering munitions during fighting last year.
Iran and Azerbaijan share a border of around 700 kilometers (430 miles) and enjoy good relations.
According to some estimates, there are around 10 million members of Iran’s Azeri-speaking community.

A fire erupted in an IRGC facility in Iran on Sunday leaving two dead and one injured. On Thursday, Tel Aviv-based ImageSat International - ISI, a commercial servicer for satellite images - estimated that the facility was not just any military compound - it was a secret missile base.
It is still unclear why the fire erupted on Sunday.
A series of explosions and fires have hit industrial sites across Iran, including a number of petrochemical plants, in recent months and over the past year.
Iranian officials have referred to most of the cases as incidents or accidents, although some reports have claimed that at least some of them involved foul play.
The aging infrastructure in Iran has also been blamed for at least some of the incidents. Frequent blackouts have plagued Iran recently amid a heatwave.

It is safe for people to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and a flu shot at the same time and it does not negatively impact the immune response produced by either, a British study found on Thursday.
Britain and other northern hemisphere countries are bracing for a tough winter and the possibility of a surge in flu cases as COVID-19 restrictions are eased and social distancing measures relaxed.
Booster COVID-19 shots are being given to elderly and vulnerable people and to health workers in Britain, while Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government has also promised the biggest flu vaccination program in history this year.
The study, led by the University of Bristol, found that reported side effects were usually mild to moderate in tests with three flu vaccines and either Pfizer or AstraZeneca's COVID-19 shot.
"This is a really positive step which could mean fewer appointments for those who require both vaccines," chief investigator Rajeka Lazarus said.
"The results of this study have been presented to the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) for their consideration and will aid policymakers in planning the future of these important vaccination programs."

Shots were given on the same day, in opposite arms.
One group had a COVID shot and a flu jab in a first visit, with a placebo given in a second visit, and another had a COVID-19 shot and a placebo given on the same day, followed by a flu vaccine on the second day.
The study found 97% of participants said they would be willing to have two vaccines at the same appointment in the future.
The study involved 679 volunteers at 12 sites across England and Wales, and was released as a pre-print, with full results due to be published in the Lancet.
