Syrian military official
killed in al- Qaida firefight

Maj. Gen. Jameh
Jameh's cause of
death unclear
BEIRUT (AP) - One of Syria's
most powerful military officers
was killed in fighting with al-
Qaida-linked Islamic extremists
in an oil-rich eastern province
largely controlled by the rebels,
Syrian state-run television said
The fighting came amid a new
push to hold an elusive peace
conference for Syria's civil war,
with the government proposing
the talks start late next month,
though there was no sign the
opposition would attend.
Maj. Gen. Jameh Jameh was
killed in the provincial capital
of Deir el-Zour, where he was

state-run TV said. He was the
most senior military officer to be
killed in more than a year.
The report didnot say when
or how Jameh was killed, only
that he died "while he was carry-
ing out his mission in defending
Syria and its people."
The Britain-based Syrian
Observatory for Human Rights
said Jameh was killed by a sniper
bullet during clashes with rebels,
including members of al-Qaida-
linked Jabhat al-Nusra or Nusra
Jameh's cousin, Haitham
Jameh, told Lebanon-based
Al-Mayadeen TV that the gen-
eral was killed when a bomb
exploded as he led his troops in
an operation in Deir el-Zour, site
of more than a year of clashes
between regime forces and rebel
fighters, who control most of the

He was the most powerful
Syrian officer to be killed since a
July 2012 bomb attack on a Cabi-
net meeting in Damascus killed
four top officials, including the
defense minister and his dep-
uty, who was President Bashar
Assad's brother-in-law. That
attack also wounded the interior
Jameh played a major role
in Lebanon when Damascus
dominated its smaller neighbor.
When Syrian troops withdrew
from Lebanon in 2005, ending
nearly a three-decade military
presence, Jameh was in charge
of Syrian intelligence in the capi-
tal, Beirut.
He was amongseveraltop Syr-
ian officers suspectedofhavinga
role in the 2005 assassination of
former Lebanese Prime Minister
Rafik Hariri. Syria denies any
involvement in the slaying.

Lawmakers Wednesday voted to avoid a financial default and reopen the government after a 16-day partial shutdown.
Stock market reaches an all
ime high after debt deal vote

With the debt crisis
averted market on
the incline again
stock market hit an all-time high
Thursday as investors put the
government shutdown and debt
ceiling crisis behind them and
focused on corporate earnings.
The Standard & Poor's 500
index rose 11.61 points, or 0.7
percent, to close at 1,733.15 - a
record close.
The market rose throughout
the day as investors got back to
focusing on corporate earnings
and economic data. American
Express and Verizon rose the
most in the Dow Jones industrial
average after reporting earn-
ings that beat expectations from
financial analysts.
The Dow ended the day down
two points, or 0.01 percent, to
15,371.65. The index of 30 big
U.S. companies was held back by
declines in IBM, Goldman Sachs
and UnitedHealth.
IBM's third-quarter revenue
fell and missed Wall Street's
forecast by more than $1 billion.

The stock closed down $11.90, or
6 percent, to $174.80. Earlier, it
had touched its lowest level of the
past year - $172.57
Goldman Sachs also weighed
down the index. The investment
bank's revenue fell sharply as
trading in bonds and other secu-
rities slowed. Goldman fell $3.93,
or 2.4 percent, to $158.32.
The focus on earnings is a
change of pace for Wall Street,
which had been absorbed in
Washington's political drama
over the last month.
Now that the U.S. has avoided
the possibility of default, at least
for a few months, earnings news
is expected to dominate trading
for the next couple weeks. So far,
only 79 companies in the S&P
500 have reported third-quarter
results, according to S&P Capital
IQ. Analysts expect earnings at
those companies to increase 3.3
percent over the same period a
year ago.
"I don't think we can com-
pletely close the door on the debt
ceiling chapter just yet, but we
can get backto the stuff that real-
ly matters," said Jonathan Cor-
pina, who manages trading on
the floor of the New York Stock

Exchange for Meridian Equity
Other indexes also posted big
gains. The Nasdaq composite
closed up 23,71 points, or 0.6 per-
cent, to 3,863.15.
The Russell 2000 index,
which is made up of primarily
smaller, riskier companies, also
hit an all-time high. It closed
up 9.85 points, or 0.9 percent, to
1,102.27 and has risen nearly 30
percent this year.
Market analysts think the
16-day partial shutdown of the
government caused billions of
dollars of damage to the econ-
omy. Government employees
were furloughed, contracts were
delayed, and tourism declined at
national parks.
Analysts at Wells Fargo said
the shutdown likely lowered eco-
nomic growth by 0.5 percentage
There remain broader con-
cerns that Democrats and
Republicans won't be able to
draw up a longer-term budget.
The deal approved late Wednes-
day only permits the Treasury
Department to borrow through
Feb. 7 and fund the government
through Jan. 15.
