FILE PHOTO: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stands by a screen with an image of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh during a news conference at the Ministry of Defence in Tel Aviv, Israel, April 30, 2018. The IAEA and U.S. intelligence agencies believe it had a coordinated weapons programme that it halted in 2003. After Trump entered the White House promising to scrap the nuclear deal, Israel stepped up a campaign saying Iran had lied about the extent of its past nuclear activities. But she said his work in creating an infrastructure to support Iran’s nuclear work meant “his death won’t fundamentally alter the course of Iran’s nuclear programme.”This was echoed by Iranian officials. “He created a network of scientists that will continue his work,” said Fereydoon Abbasi, an Iranian nuclear scientist and former head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation, who survived an assassination attempt in 2010.

A view shows the scene of the attack that killed Prominent Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, outside Tehran, Iran, November 27, 2020. Iran pointed the finger at Israel, while implying the killing had the blessing of the departing Trump. He was the only Iranian scientist named in the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 2015 “final assessment” of open questions about Iran’s nuclear programme. The IAEA’s report said he oversaw activities “in support of a possible military dimension to (Iran’s) nuclear programme”. Michael Mulroy, a senior Pentagon official earlier during Trump’s administration, said Fakhrizadeh was Iran’s most senior nuclear scientist and his killing would set back its nuclear programme.

A view shows the scene of the attack that killed Prominent Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, outside Tehran, Iran, November 27, 2020. Trump, who lost his re-election bid on Nov. 3 and leaves office on Jan. 20, has repeatedly accused Iran of secretly seeking nuclear weapons. Fakhrizadeh is thought to have headed what the U.N. nuclear watchdog and U.S. intelligence services believe was a coordinated nuclear weapons programme in Iran, shelved in 2003. He was the only Iranian scientist named in the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 2015 “final assessment” of open questions about Iran’s nuclear programme.

Delta CEO Ed Bastian is awarding employees with two free travel passes as a thank you for their work this year. Called "Delta Difference" passes, employees can use them to fly anywhere Delta flies with a confirmed seat. Delta employees already have free flight benefits but these passes will be useful during a busy travel period or when using their benefits is less likely to secure a seat. Luckily, the "Delta Difference" passes also don't expire, allowing employees the opportunity to use them once the world reopens. Airline employees already fly for free but positive space passes are more like a paid ticketA perk of the job, Delta employees receive free flight benefits on the airline and can access discounted fares on others.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel sent a first delegation to Sudan to discuss potential economic and humanitarian cooperation on Monday after the countries announced a U.S.-brokered agreement on Oct 23 to take steps toward establishing relations, a source said. The talks focussed on how Israel might shore up Sudan’s agriculture, food security, water supplies and health care, the source, who declined to be identified by name or nationality, told Reuters. The Israeli delegates also met separately with representatives of the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum, the source said. The source familiar with Monday’s mission said those talks did not touch on the prospect of a more comprehensive peace treaty between Israel and Sudan. The Israelis’ Sudanese interlocutors on Monday included “a range of figures” from the Khartoum leadership, the source said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attends the swearing-in ceremony of the 22nd Knesset, the Israeli parliament, in Jerusalem October 3, 2019. Israeli media reported Monday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flew to Saudi Arabia for a clandestine meeting with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, which would mark the first known encounter between senior Israeli and Saudi officials. Hebrew-language media cited an unnamed Israeli official as saying that Netanyahu and Yossi Cohen, head of Israel's Mossad spy agency, flew to the Saudi city of Neom on Sunday, where they met with the crown prince. The Israeli prime minister's office did not respond to requests for comment. However, analysts and insiders suggest his 35-year-old son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, likely is more open to the idea of normalizing relations without major progress in the moribund peace process.
