*The text below is a re-reading of the news, of my own, about the last/recent news.*
Some wouldn´t make distinction between re-reading and rereading, most of the time it doesn´t matter. In academical texts I think re-reading it´s a "releitura", review. Whereas a "rereading" would be "reading for the second time, or more."
So, in informal settings "rereading" can even be fine, just be careful if you have to write academical works/essays.
You could also use "I summarized this recent news on Syria/on Foreign Affairs, on my own words."
