An emerging cease-fire agreement aimed at calming months of violence on the Israel-Gaza border will last for three years and see a significant easing of the blockade on the Hamas-controlled territory, Lebanons Al-Akbar newspaper reported Saturday.

According to the report, the deal being brokered by Egypt stipulates a gradual stop to the ongoing, Hamas-orchestrated violent border protests and maritime flotillas over the next two months. In addition, Hamas will be obligated to punish Gazans caught engaging in violent demonstrating along the border with Israel.

In return, Egypt will permanently open its Rafah border crossing and lift 70 percent of its blockade on the Hamas-controlled territory, the report said, citing officials familiar with the emerging agreement.

Al-Akbar said the deal would require Israel to grant 5,000 work permits for Gazans, and expand the Strips fishing zone from nine to 14 nautical miles.

Israel had no immediate comment on the report.

In addition, the paper reported the Palestinian Authority would pay 80% of the salaries of Hamas officials in Gaza, and would not object to Qatar bankrolling those wages for at least six months, like it has in the past.

More details emerge in Russian police gang rape scandal "IndyWatch Feed World"

A massive scandal has rocked Russian law enforcement after three high-ranking officers were detained for gang-raping their younger female colleague during a booze-fueled party at police headquarters in Ufa. There still no clarity on what actually happened on Monday night in the capital Russia's Republic of Bashkortostan, but the media is digging up dirt on the alleged sex offenders and their victim. The day in question seems to have started quite innocently. Two respected district police department heads, Eduard Matveev, 51, and Salavat Galiyev, 50, decided to get together to share a few drinks, relax and remember their past. Some reports suggest the policemen were celebrating a retirement or the homecoming of a former boss. Russian custom dictates that a drinking party needs at least three people, and they invited 34-year-old migration section head, Pavel Yaromchuk, to join them in order to meet that requirement. The party lasted for several hours and the three men were apparently...

Armenia's PM tells US that it will maintain "special relations" with Iran regardless of sanctions "IndyWatch Feed World"

Acting Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian says he made clear to U.S. national-security adviser John Bolton last week that Armenia will pursue its national interests and maintain "special relations" with its neighbor Iran. Addressing the Armenian parliament on November 1, Pashinian said he told Bolton when he visited Yerevan last week that Armenia is a landlocked nation that does not have diplomatic relations with either neighboring Turkey or Azerbaijan, so it must retain "special relations" with its other two neighbors -- Iran and Georgia -- which he said are Armenia's only "gateways" to the outside world. "I reaffirm the position that we should have special relations with Iran and Georgia that would be as far outside geopolitical influences as possible. This position was very clearly formulated also during my meeting with Mr. Bolton, and I think that the position of Armenia was clear, comprehensible, and even acceptable to representatives of the U.S. delegation," the Armenian...
