In possibly the last military operation ordered by outgoing American President Barack Obama, four B-2 stealth bombers attacked an ISIS camp in Libya. According to reports on Arab social networks, the attack on the camp about 45 kilometers southwest of the city of Sirte destroyed ammunition dumps and killed several dozen people. The bombers took off from a base in the US on Tuesday and were refueled and armed at a US base in southern Europe. DEBKAfile's intelligence and military sources report that Obama wanted a large-scale strike that would help him leave office on a high note, but despite pressure by him, the Pentagon only approved the attack on the targets in the Libyan desert, and the results were described as negligible.()

Incoming White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Thursday at his first press conference, in response to a question from an Israeli reporter, that interested parties should "stay tuned" on whether President-elect Donald Trump intends to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Immediately afterwards, without being asked, he said "The president-elect has been very clear that Israel has not gotten the attention it deserves or the respect in the last eight years. He intends to really show his respect for Israel (and) the importance of it in the Middle East." Spicer said there are ongoing discussions about policy toward Israel between Trump, Secretary of State-designate Rex Tillerson, Ambassador to Israel-designate David Freedman, and the president-elect's special adviser for the Middle East, Jared Kushner. Before moving on to the next question, Spicer added that one of the issues being discussed is how the administration will support and work better with Israel.()

Around 28,000 security officials are on hand to defend the close to one million people – supporters and opponents - gathered in Washington DC for the inauguration of Donald Trump as 45th US President and Mike Pence as Vice President Friday at 7 pm (IST).
In ceremonies taking place on the West Front of the Capitol (7 pm IST), Pence will be sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas followed by Trump, who will take the oath of office administered by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts. Trump will use president Lincoln’s Bible and the Bible he was given by his mother at Sunday school graduation in 1955. He will then deliver his inaugural address.
Former presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George Bush will attend the ceremonies with their wives. Scores of Democratic lawmakers have chosen to boycott the occasion.
The new president will then lead a parade to the White House through streets lined with spectators.
Anti-Trump protests are set to take place from Thursday night onwards, culminating in the Women's March on Washington on Saturday. Before moving into the White House, Trump had to make his personal transition from billionaire real estate mogul to US president by giving up his beloved private plane for an Air Force Jet, and trading his Android phone for a secure, encrypted device approved by the Secret Service.
