Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has cancelled his planned trip to Israel today after news of his arrival was leaked over the weekend.

According to The Times Of Israel, citing diplomatic sources, he is still expected to make the trip, but no date is set at this stage.

An Israeli official said on Sunday: ‘If President Zelensky comes, he will be welcomed with open arms.’

Israel shoots down ‘suspicious aerial target’ from Lebanon

  • The IDF was forced to intercept a ‘suspicious aerial target’ it said was fired into the territory from north of the Lebanese border.
  • “A short while ago, the IDF aerial defence array intercepted a suspicious aerial target that was identified in the area of the border with Lebanon before it crossed into Israeli territory,” a military statement said.

Hamas claims readiness to free 12 hostages, but claims ‘situation of the ground’ is preventing their release

Al Jazeera reports that Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s armed wing, has said on its Telegram channel that it was ‘ready to release’ 12 of the roughly 240 captives who were taken into Gaza on October 7.

However, the group said ‘the situation on the ground is what hinders this from being completed,’ blaming Israeli air strikes and the on-going ground offensive.

The post said Hamas was ready to release ’12 detainees in Gaza who hold foreign nationalities, but the occupation (Israel) obstructed that’.

In pictures taken yesterday, Palestinians are seen in the aftermath of an alleged Israeli air strike on the Al-Maghazi refugee camp, in Deir Al Balah, Gaza.

Gaza’a Hamas-run health ministry said yesterday the death toll in the territory since the war began climbed over 10,000.

Reports suggested more than 40 people were killed in the strike. Israel said it would investigate whether it was operating in the area at the time.

Israeli forces have pushed further into Gaza and engaged Hamas fighters near the Shifa Hospital, is have been reported.

The IDF claims the hospital sits on top of the terror group’s headquarters, and accuses Hamas’s leaders of using it as a civilian shield against Israeli strikes.

Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari said the country’s forces were ‘deepening the pressure’ on Gaza City, with anticipation for a full ground offensive into the city’s narrow streets now building.

IDF troops were reportedly near the enclave’s Shifa Hospital – Gaza’s main and largest medical facility – which sits about 800 yards from the coast.

UN rights chief Volker Turk kicks off five-day visit to Middle East

The UN rights chief is visiting the Middle East amid rising concerns over Israel’s escalation in Gaza, his office said today.

Volker Turk is in Egypt at the start of a five-day visit to the region, and was planning to visit the Rafah crossing to Gaza on Wednesday, his office said in a statement.

Turk will visit Amman Thursday, and has also sought access to Israel, the occupied West Bank and Gaza, it added. The UN has been highly critical of Israel over its bombing campaign in Gaza, and has called for a ceasefire.

‘It has been one full month of carnage, of incessant suffering, bloodshed, destruction, outrage and despair,’ Turk said in the statement.

‘Human rights violations are at the root of this escalation and human rights play a central role in finding a way out of this vortex of pain.’

United Nations (UN) High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Turk answers AFP journalists' questions during an interview at his office, in Geneva, on January 4, 2023. - From Afghanistan and Iran to rampant misogynistic vitriol online, the UN rights chief warned in an interview of organised efforts to counter women's rights, but voiced confidence they would fail. "I am very concerned about the backsliding and the pushbacks," United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Turk told AFP.

Minute silence observed in Jerusalem one month on from Hamas terror attack

Israelis observed a minute of silence on Tuesday morning in memory of the victims of Hamas’ October 7 attack on southern Israel and the 348 soldiers killed since the assault, on its one-month anniversary.

Israelis are marking the anniversary as a day of mourning over the attack, in which more than 1,400 people were killed and 242 were taken hostage.

The one-month anniversary is a milestone in the timeline of Jewish mourning.

Memorial events are scheduled to be held in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem later in the day.

Breaking: Gaza death toll rises to 10,328, Hamas-run health ministry says

At least 10,328 Palestinians, including 4,237 children, have been killed in Israeli strikes on Gaza since October 7, the Hamas-run health ministry has said.

The ministry does not distinguish between civilians and combatants, and Israel says it has killed thousands of fighters.

The new toll marks an increase of around 300 fatalities in the last 24 hours.

IDF fighters ‘continue to locate and destroy terror tunnels’

IDF spokesperson Daniel Hagari has said Israel’s forces are continuing their efforts to destroy Hamas’s network of tunnels under Gaza.

He posted a video on X (formerly Twitter) showing underground explosions, followed by Israeli soldiers operating in the small territory investigating what appeared to be an entrance into a tunnel.

Palestinian evacuees describe ‘dangerous’ escape route out of Gaza City

What was once Gaza’s busiest thoroughfare has become a terrifying escape route for Palestinian civilians fleeing combat on foot or on donkey carts.

On their way south, those running for their lives said they raised their hands and waved white flags to move past Israeli tanks along the four-lane highway.

Some reported Israeli soldiers firing at them and said they passed bodies strewn alongside the road. Many escaped with just the clothes on their back.

One woman, covered head-to-toe in a black veil and robe, cradled a toddler and clutched a black purse. A man walked alongside a covered donkey cart that transported his family. It was piled high with mattresses.

‘The most dangerous trip in my life. We saw the tanks from point blank. We saw decomposed body parts. We saw death,’ resident Adam Fayez Zeyara posted with a selfie of himself on the road out of Gaza City.

During a four-hour evacuation window Sunday, fewer than 2,000 made the move, followed by about 5,000 on Monday, according to UN monitors.

‘Last night was very difficult,’ said Amal, a young woman who declined to give her family name due to safety concerns. She was part of a group of 17 people making the journey Monday. She said tanks fired near the group. Soldiers then ordered everyone to raise their hands and white flags before being allowed to pass.

Nour Naji Abu Nasser, 27, arrived Sunday in Khan Younis in south Gaza. She described an hourslong frightening journey.

‘They fired at the sand around us. They wanted to scare us,’ she said, adding that she saw bodies lying along a road outside Gaza City.

The four-week war has displaced more than 1.5 million people across Gaza, according to UN figures.

Breaking: Evacuation window closes for Palestinians still in northern Gaza to flee south

Israel gave civilians still trapped inside the encircled Gaza City a four hour window to flee to the south of the territory today.

The window has now closed.

Residents escaping said they passed tanks in position to possibly begin storming it.

Israel says its forces have surrounded Gaza City, home to a third of the enclave’s 2.3 million people, and are poised to storm it soon in their campaign to annihilate the Hamas terrorists who attacked Israeli towns exactly a month ago.

Yesterday, it was reported the IDF could move in within 48 hours.

Israel gave residents a window from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm (0800 GMT – 1200 GMT) to leave Gaza City.

Residents say Israeli tanks have been moving mostly at night, with Israeli forces until now largely relying on air and artillery strikes to clear a path.

‘For your safety, take this next opportunity to move south beyond Wadi Gaza,’ the military announced, referring to the wetlands that bisect the strip.

An elderly Jewish protester has been killed in California after a skirmish led to him falling on his head after reportedly being hit with a megaphone.

Paul Kessler, 69, was caught up in rival rallies in Thousand Oaks on Sunday – one in support of Israel and the other backing the Palestinian cause.

Kessler is understood to have been involved in a tussle with another person where he fell backward and hit his head on the ground.

Israeli strike on Gaza kills Palestinian reporter, news agency says

An Israeli air strike on the Gaza Strip killed a Palestinian journalist and wounded another, the official Palestinian news agency has reported.

If confirmed, Mohammad Abu Hasira would be the latest among dozens of journalists killed in the month-long conflict.

He ‘was killed in an Israeli bombing that targeted his house located near the fishermen’s port west of Gaza City,’ WAFA news agency said.

WAFA reported that Abu Hasira ‘and 42 members of his family, including his sons and brothers’ were killed in the strike.

The Hamas-run news press service in the Gaza Strip said the bombardment that killed Abu Hasira took place overnight between Sunday and Monday, but that his body was only found in the rubble on Tuesday.

The Committee to Protect Journalists says 37 journalists and media workers have been killed in Israel and Gaza since the conflict began on October 7.

UN says 569 aid trucks have reached Gaza since war broke out

The UN Humanitarian office has said 569 aid trucks have entered Gaza to date, none of which have contained fuel.

Aid groups say an absolute minimum of 100 trucks per day are needed to sustain the population of 2.3 million people living in the coastal strip.

Today is the 32nd day of the conflict which broke out on October 7 when Hamas terrorists attacked Israel, meaning an average of 17 trucks have entered per day since the war broke out – far fewer than is needed.

In response to the Hamas attack, the IDF blockaded the territory, meaning it has been even more challenging to get vital supplies to the people of Gaza.

While trucks have delivered food, water and other supplies, the UN said none have contained fuel. Electricity into the territory is cut, meaning fuel is required for generators to power hospitals and other vital infrastructure.

Many hospitals have stopped functioning, while others are at their limit.

Space has become the new theater of war after Israel shot down a rocket soaring ‘outside of Earth’s atmosphere.’

The Israel Defense (IDF) revealed last week that its Arrow missile defense system took down an ‘aerial threat’ allegedly fired by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.

While details are sparse, the accepted boundary between Earth’s atmosphere and space is 62 miles above the surface, known as the Kármán line.

IDF secures ‘Hamas military stronghold’ near hospital in Gaza

Israel’s military says it has secured a Hamas military stronghold in Gaza.

In a statement, it said the stronghold belonged to ‘the Hamas terrorist organisation in the northern Gaza Strip’ where it is carrying out a ground offensive.

IDF troops found anti-tank missiles and rocket launchers among other weapons, as well as ‘various intelligence materials’, the army reported.

It said a fighter jet also struck a Hamas cell, killing 10 fighters.

‘Furthermore, IDF troops located a number of Hamas terrorists who barricaded themselves in a building adjacent to the al Quds Hospital, and planned to carry out an attack on the forces from there,’ the statement said.

Israel has long accused Hamas of hiding in or near important civilian infrastructure, such as hospitals, a charge that Hamas denies.

WHO says over 16 healthcare workers have died on duty in Gaza in war’s first month

A World Health Organization spokesperson said on Tuesday that over 16 health care workers had died on duty in Gaza.

They also called for a lifting of restrictions on medical aid, saying some doctors were performing operations, including amputations, without anaesthetic.

‘Over 16 of the healthcare workers have died on duty while taking care of those injured and diseased,’ Christian Lindmeier told a press briefing, without citing the source of information.

‘These are the people keeping the health system going through the dedication they have somehow found a way to keep some level of service going.’

(This has been corrected after an earlier report said the figure was 160. The report was corrected by Reuters news agency.)

IDF reports more clashes over Lebanon border

Israel has reported its forces again fired into Lebanon, responding to an attack.

‘A short time ago, an IDF tank attacked a terrorist squad in Lebanese territory that tried to launch an anti-tank missile towards Israeli territory near the Shatula area,’ IDF spokesperson Daniel Hagari wrote.

‘Also, earlier today IDF forces attacked a position of the terrorist organization Hezbollah, in order to remove a threat.’

‘Thousands’ seen passing through evacuation corridor opened by IDF

Thousands of people are reported to be passing down the evacuation corridor opened by the IDF to allow Israeli citizens in the north of Gaza to flee south.

A video released by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), a unit in the Israeli army that coordinates on civilian issues, shows a large crowd of people walking down what appears to be Gaza’s main road.

According to the Embassy of Israel in the US, three of Hamas’s most senior leaders – Mousa Abu Marzouk, Khaled Mashal and Ismail Haniyeh – have net worths of more than $3billion each.

The embassy also claims that Hamas’s annual turnover is $1billion and suggests the group is second only to ISIS as the world’s richest terror group.

While other estimates of Hamas’s wealth are more conservative, there is no question the group leaders have amassed huge fortunes, and in May 2022, the US Treasury Department sanctioned a Hamas finance official as well as other financial facilitators.

But how has Hamas accumulated its wealth?

Kremlin calls for ‘humanitarian pauses’

The Kremlin called on Tuesday for ‘humanitarian pauses’ during Israel’s military operation in the Gaza Strip.

It described the humanitarian situation there as ‘catastrophic’.

Russia will continue contacts with Israel, Egypt and the Palestinians to help ensure that humanitarian supplies can be delivered into Gaza, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a regular briefing.

He made no mention of Russian atrocities against civilians in Ukraine, where tens of thousands of civilians have been killed by Moscow’s armies.

Breaking: IDF ‘opens evacuation corridor’

The IDF has said it has opened an evacuation corridor to allow civilians in northern Gaza to move south.

Israel has for weeks been urging civilians still in the north of the coastal strip to flee to the south before its forces move into Gaza City.

However, aid groups have warned that thousands of people, particularly the elderly and people who are injured or sick, are unable to make the journey.

What’s more, there have been reports of Israeli attacks on civilian vehicles along the main road that links the north and south of the Gaza Strip, including one incident in which an IDF tank opened fire on a car.

Israel air-drops leaflets and sends texts ordering Palestinians in northern Gaza to flee south

Israel has again air-dropped leaflets and sent text messages ordering Palestinian civilians still in northern Gaza to head south.

Home to 1.1 million before the war, many people have heeded Israel’s warning. But a US official said Saturday at least 350,000 civilians remained in the worst-hit areas.

Military analysts have warned of weeks of gruelling house-to-house fighting ahead in Gaza, from which Israel withdrew in 2005.

‘Hamas has had 15 years to prepare a dense ‘defence in depth’ that integrates subterranean, ground-level and above-ground fortifications,’ said Michael Knights of the Washington Institute think tank.

The group’s defences also include ‘potential minefields, improvised explosive devices, explosively formed penetrator anti-armour mines, and buildings rigged as explosive booby traps,’ he said.

The operation is hugely complicated for Israel because of the hostages, including very young children and frail elderly people, who are believed to be held inside a tunnel network spanning hundreds of miles.

MAP: Israel’s ground incursion

Turkey’s Anadolu Agency has released the below map showing details of Israel’s on-going ground incursion into the Gaza Strip.

It demonstrates how the IDF has cut off North Gaza and Gaza City from the southern part of the territory, and is now surrounding the city. The map also shows what areas of the coastal strip have been damaged by IDF airstrikes.

After the Israeli military vehicles retreated from the northern part of the Gaza Strip on Saturday, they resumed their advance on Sunday in the northern and southern sectors of Gaza City, reaching as far as 'Al-Rashid' Street overlooking the sea. This occurred amid fierce clashes with Palestinian militant factions, resulting in casualties and injuries among the Israeli military. In the past few hours, aircraft, artillery, and naval warships have intensified their airstrikes on Gaza City and the northern part of the Gaza Strip. They targeted roads, agricultural lands, and homes in an unprecedented manner. (Photo by Yasin Demirci/Anadolu via Getty Images)

Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed Israel will take control of the ‘overall security’ of the Gaza Strip after his country’s war with Hamas.

Resisting calls for a ceasefire, Netanyahu said there would be no letup in the war to destroy the terror group, whose attack one month ago today left 1,400 dead in Israel.

‘Israel will, for an indefinite period, have the overall security responsibility,’ he said. ‘When we don’t have that security responsibility, what we have is the eruption of Hamas terror on a scale that we couldn’t imagine.’

UN Security Council fails again to agree resolution on Israel-Hamas war

The United Nations Security Council failed again last night to agree on a resolution on the Israel-Hamas war.

Despite more than two hours of closed-door discussions, differences remained.

The US is calling for ‘humanitarian pauses’ while many council members are demanding a ‘humanitarian cease-fire’ to deliver desperately needed aid and prevent more civilian deaths in Gaza.

‘We talked about humanitarian pauses and we’re interested in pursuing language on that score,’ U.S. deputy ambassador Robert Wood told reporters after the meeting. ‘But there are disagreements within the council about whether that’s acceptable.’

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres earlier Monday told reporters he wanted an immediate humanitarian cease-fire in Gaza and a halt to the ‘spiral of escalation’ already taking place from the West Bank, Lebanon and Syria to Iraq and Yemen.

Guterres said international humanitarian law, which demands protection of civilians and infrastructure essential for their lives, is clearly being violated and stressed that ‘no party to an armed conflict is above’ these laws.

He called for the immediate unconditional release of the hostages Hamas took from Israel to Gaza in its Oct. 7 attack.

China, which holds the Security Council presidency this month, and the United Arab Emirates, the Arab representative on the council, called Monday’s meeting because of the ‘crisis of humanity’ in Gaza.

Hamas leader brazenly refuses to acknowledge terror group killed civilians in Israel

Moussa Abu Marzouk, a senior Hamas leader, has refused to acknowledge that his terror group killed civilians in Israel in the October 7 attack.

He told the BBC that ‘women, children and civilians were exempt’ from the attacks, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Videos filmed by Hamas fighters themselves have shown them shooting unarmed men, women and children, and the bodies of civilians have been recovered from several communities in southern Israel since the attack.

Israel says more than 1,400 people in Israel were killed, mostly civilians killed, in the October 7 incursion by Hamas that started the war.

Israel has vowed to remove Hamas from power and crush its military capabilities.
