World roundup: November 17 2021
Stories from Iran, Azerbaijan, Belarus, and more
In today’s global news:
Worldometer is tracking COVID-19 cases and fatalities.
The New York Times is tracking global vaccine distribution.
There is nothing new to say about Wednesday morning’s Israeli missile attack in southern Syria beyond what we already knew yesterday. I’ve seen no information on the nature of the target, though presumably it’s linked to Hezbollah or some other Iranian-backed militia, nor have I seen anything that contradicts the official report of zero casualties.
