Iranian tanker not heading to Greece — Greek prime minister

  • The Adrian Darya was detained by Gibraltar after British forces seized it in July on suspicion of breaking sanctions on Syria

PARIS: An Iranian tanker which the United States wants seized is not heading toward Greece as it sails through the Mediterranean, Greek Prime Minister Kyrikos Mitsotakis told France 24 TV on Thursday.
“The ship is not heading toward Greece. We have not received a request for it to dock in a Greek port,” Mitsotakis said.
The Adrian Darya was detained by Gibraltar after British forces seized it in July on suspicion of breaking sanctions on Syria but it was released last week. The United States wants to detain it again on the grounds it has links to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

Palestinian jailed for life for murder of Israeli

  • Fayiz Hamed was found guilty of voluntary homicide and attempted murders
  • The four Israelis were in a car when they came under fire at a crossroads near the settlement of Shvut Rachel in 2015

JERUSALEM: An Israeli military court Monday sentenced a Palestinian to life imprisonment for a 2015 shooting in the occupied West Bank that killed an Israeli and wounded three others, the army said.
Fayiz Hamed was found guilty of voluntary homicide and attempted murders.
The four Israelis were in a car when they came under fire at a crossroads near the settlement of Shvut Rachel on June 29, 2015, the army said in a statement.
The military accused the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, of carrying out the gun attack.
Hamas praised the attack without claiming responsibility.
