I'm trying to combine two search queries consisted of multiple search operators into one search query, but it's not working.

1st query:

trade war site:bbc.com AND inurl:world-43512098

2nd query:

trade war site:cnn.com AND inurl:2019/07/19/economy

Combined query:

trade war (site:bbc.com AND inurl:world-43512098) OR (site:cnn.com AND inurl:2019/07/19/economy)

2nd query:

trade war site:cnn.com AND inurl:2019/07/19/economy

Combined query:

trade war (site:bbc.com AND inurl:world-43512098) OR (site:cnn.com AND inurl:2019/07/19/economy)

Google Advanced Search Help - no parentheses

Combined query

trade war site:bbc.com OR site:cnn.com AND inurl:world-43512098 OR inurl:2019/07/19/economy

Explanation: (search terms) AND (Site #1) OR (Site #2) + (URL #1) OR (URL #2)

Proof it works:
