_______________________________________________________________________________
Kiev forces retreated from Luhansk airport after battling a "Russian armed forces" tank column on Monday, Kiev said, in what Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko described as the latest stage of Moscow's "direct and open aggression".

The battle came ahead of a key meeting between Russia and Ukraine in Minsk, the Belarus capital, later on Monday.

"In the Luhansk direction, Ukrainian forces have received an order and have pulled back from the airport," Ukraine army spokesman Andriy Lysenko told reporters. He said seven Ukrainian service personnel had been killed in the past 24 hours.

US calls on Israel to reverse planned West Bank land appropriation ::

_______________________________________________________________________________
The US has called for Israel to cancel its plan to appropriate about 1,000 acres of land in the West Bank, close to the spot where three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped in June.

"We have long made clear our opposition to continued settlement activity," a US official told Reuters. " This announcement, like every other settlement announcement Israel makes. is counterproductive to Israel' stated goal of a negotiated two-state solution with the Palestinians."

"We urge the government of Israel to reverse this decision," the official said in Washington.

Declassified U.S. Nuclear Test Film #62 - YouTube

_______________________________________________________________________________
Starfish Prime Test Interim Report by Commander JTF-8 - 7:45 - Sound - STARFISH PRIME, was one of the high-altitude nuclear tests in the Operation Fishbowl series conducted in the Pacific Proving Ground in 1962. It was launched in the Johnston Island area to an altitude of about 400 kilometers by a Thor rocket and had a yield of 1.4 megatons.

The test evaluated the capabilities of an antiballistic missile to operate in a nuclear environment and the vulnerability of a U.S. reentry vehicle to survive a nearby nuclear blast. It also provided information on the ability of a U.S. radar system to detect and track reentry vehicles. Another goal was to discern the effects of a high-altitude blast on command and control systems, which were shown to be vulnerable in earlier high-altitude tests. The final goal was to obtain information on the feasibility of testing in outer space.
