BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) - Unidentified aircraft carried out an air strike on the Libyan city of Derna on Sunday, killing at least three people, an eye-witness in the city and a local television station reported. Air strikes by unidentified jets happen often in Libya, mostly against suspected Islamist militant targets, including fighters loyal to Islamic State who have been present in Derna and have a stronghold in the city of Sirte.

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday called on the world to condemn a suspected arson attack against a makeshift synagogue in the West Bank where Jewish Torah scrolls were burned.
Turkey said it was ready "if necessary" to let in tens of thousands of Syrians fleeing a major Russian-backed regime offensive, as aid agencies warned Sunday of a "desperate" situation. Thousands of people, including many women and children, are stranded at the Turkish border after an exodus triggered by fierce fighting near Syria's second city Aleppo. "If they reached our door and have no other choice, if necessary, we have to and will let our brothers in," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters.
