6. Can put headscarf reform to vote: Erdogan

• Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on November 2, 2022 his ruling AK Party (AKP) could put a constitutional amendment protecting women`s right to wear headscarves to a referendum if it was not passed by parliament.
• The AKP was set to present the reform to parliament as soon as parties step up efforts to appeal to voters ahead of presidential and parliamentary elections set for June with polls showing dwindling support for Erdogan and the AKP.
• However, the secularist CHP revived the issue last month with a proposal to enshrine the right to wear headscarves as it reached out to devout Turks, having long opposed the wearing of headscarves in parliament and public offices

South Korea issued rare air raid warnings and launched its own missiles in response.
• The missile landed outside South Korea`s territorial waters, but south of the Northern Limit Line (NLL), a disputed inter-Korean maritime border.
• In response, South Korean warplanes fired three air-to-ground missiles into the sea north across the NLL in response, the South`s military said. An official said the weapons used included an AGM84H/K SLAM-ER, which is a US-made `stand-off` precision attack weapon that can fly for up to 270km (170 miles) with a 360kg (800lb) warhead

8. Arab leaders say Palestinian cause still dear to them, but silent on split

• Arab leaders said on Wednesday that the Palestinian cause was still central for them after their first summit meeting in three years, but they did not directly address their own splits over peace with Israel or its election of a new right-wing government.
• The final declaration after the meeting in Algiers pledged continued Arab support for the Palestinian cause, said Jerusalem must be protected, condemned Israel`s use of violence against Palestinians and urged Israel to lift its blockade of Gaza.
