Some 30 of the more than 800 hunger strikers had been hospitalised in recent days, raising fears of an escalation of clashes with Israeli security forces in the occupied West Bank.

US probe finds over 100 civilians killed in Mosul air strikeFri, 26 May 2017 12:05 | AFP
A Pentagon investigation has concluded that at least 105 civilians died in an anti-IS strike in the Iraqi city of Mosul in March, officials said Thursday, but they blamed the toll on a secondary explosion of jihadist munitions. A US aircraft delivered a single precision-guided bomb into a building in west Mosul on March 17, with the aim of killing a pair of snipers on the second story of the structure in the al-Jadida neighborhood, which at the time was under Islamic State control. "The secondary explosion triggered a rapid failure of the structure which killed the two ISIS snipers, 101 civilians sheltered in the bottom floors of the structure and four civilians in the neighboring structure to the west," said US Air Force Brigadier General Matt Isler, the lead investigator.
Aries Horoscope for Saturday, May 27, 2017
If you hope to regain your lost vigor, look no farther. Everything you once had is coming back to you, more than you might actually need. Fire flickers in your smile, even as your eyes send bold, uncoded messages across a crowded room. Telephones ring as you pass, and the call is always for you. Email zips into your inbox as you conduct multiple conversations. You can flirt to your heart`s content and still not commit to anything. And if you were thinking of physical vigor instead of all this other stuff, go to the gym and beat your most recent personal best.
Wherever you are, whoever comes to visit you there, you remain the perfect host. Maybe this means you can`t fully relax, but you already had your time off. With luck, you did all your shopping sometime in the last few days. If you still need to hit the stores or go online, you`ll probably go over budget. You can`t help yourself, though. You want to get it right, no matter what the cost. With the genuine article in front of you, read the fine print or the list of ingredients. If you see something you don`t like, exercise diplomacy.
The cosmic focus is on your lungs and mouth. It`s such a short distance between breathing and speaking that you might find yourself talking a lot. Don`t worry, though, because it`s all interesting. Your mental reflexes have never been better. If you hope to impress others, you`re probably doing it in some way even as you read this. Those toying with the idea of a future in politics can see how it might actually happen. You`d be more interested in helping others than advancing your personal fortunes. That in itself is a rare thing. Stay pure.
The world is moving faster than usual. A pileup of events threatens to overwhelm you. Your first instinct may be to hide from all this busy chaos, but this is the wrong time to disengage. If you run for home, the thing that follows you will know where you live. Seek adequate nourishment in new places, using your knowledge and instinct to determine what`s safe. Even as you take care of yourself, remember that you`re still trying to address unfinished business. Double-check any vital information that could slip through your fingers. You`ll need everything you have.
Get out and about in your community. See and be seen. While bright colors may not be your style, you have to admit that you look good in them. Given the choice, you`ll take informal team sports where rules can be waived and every point isn`t a life or death contest. You like small parties because everyone is in on the same conversation. Positive, global thinking comes easily in this encouraging environment. A deceptively simple or silly idea might be the germ of a major plan. Get it all down while the details are still with you. Call your representative early next week.
Keep your nose to the grindstone and your fingers out of the spokes. Wheels, circles and loops play a big part in what you`re doing. Repetition seems necessary, although you might wish for something more enjoyable. Avoid gossip, if only because of a feeling that it could come back to bite you. The last thing you need would be hearing your own words misquoted at the worst possible moment. As the day passes, make it easy on yourself instead of pushing harder. Save something for tomorrow, since you might have to come back here to finish up.
Doubling up and pairing off are natural for you right now. Maybe you`re the matchmaker. Maybe you`re the one who retained his or her networking services. No matter where you stand in this equation, it`s a time of new conversations and meetings of the mind. You`re open to many possibilities, although there`s a part of you that`s already working on a decision. First impressions that ring true might make all the difference later on. You`ll remember someone at their best even after you see them at their worst.
You never know when your world is being radically transformed and when you`ll suddenly sit up and take notice of the smaller, slower changes. That`s why you`re on edge. What you need is an all-consuming hobby, or words of reassurance from someone you trust. He or she would probably tell you that it`s not the end of the world unless you make it so. Watch for positive things, and forecast those trends for a while. This state of flux works both ways.
Make informed choices instead of leaving it all to luck. By now, you probably recognize the patterns that lead to success or the stepping stones lying just beneath the surface of the water. Despite these basic certainties, however, there`s still so much that could go wrong. Avoid borrowing and lending, especially when large sums of money are involved. Don`t breach your practice or compromise your principles just because someone says it will be fun. You`re entitled to a good time, but it has to be on your terms. Anything else just wouldn`t feel right to you.
If you fish for sympathy, your net may come up empty. Even the usual well-wishers are busy with problems of their own. Through this, the stars tell you that it`s time to turn inward for now. Drown your sorrows by taking on your `to-do` list. Once you`re feeling better, look at the special projects you might start. Some of these are obviously collaborative and, as you already determined, your likeliest helpers are unavailable. Maybe you could help them. It would make them more interested in returning the favor.
Losing your temper will only make matters worse, Aquarius. Self-control is the keyword of the day. Distract yourself in any way possible when you feel an outburst coming on. The moment is all wrong for childish tantrums or rash gestures of romanticism, especially if you`re in public. This phase will pass. If you have to get something off your chest, make sure you do so in a private setting.
Everything you see holds a new sense of wonder. The Moon is preparing to leave its current Sign, and there seems to be a new story and a fresh experience wherever you turn. In your opinion, your body is the best place you can possibly be. Whether you spend your day alone or with someone you love, it`s sure to be time well spent. Tonight, fun is the main goal. Be sure to choose something on the menu that you can`t make at home.
