Palestinian killed 

A young Palestinian man has succumbed to the wounds he suffered during clashes with Israeli forces. 19-year-old Kamel Abdullah Alawneh came from the northern occupied West Bank city of Jenin. He was shot in the abdomen and right hand after Israeli forces raided the flashpoint city on Saturday. Kamel was named after his brother who was also killed by Israeli forces in 2003. At least 77 Palestinians, including 15 children, have been killed by the regime forces this year, 28 of them in Jenin. Israeli forces regularly carry out raids to allegedly make arrests in populated Palestinian communities, particularly in Jenin. The raids have grown more violent and frequent since a number of deadly anti-Israeli operations in recent months. 

Russia-Ukraine war 

Intense fighting is raging in eastern Ukraine, with Russia saying its forces are now in full control of Lysychansk. The city is Ukraine's last remaining stronghold in the Luhansk region. A short while earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that its forces were fighting Ukrainian troops inside the city, after capturing the surrounding villages. With Lysychansk in their hands, Russian troops will be able to move further into the Donbas region. Just last week, they captured Severodonetsk, another major city in the east. Meantime, in Russia's border city of Belgorod, three people have been killed and several others wounded in several blasts. So far no reactions from Kiev. 

Sydney flooding 

In Australia, thousands of Sydney's residents will have to leave their homes as flooding hits southeastern parts of the city. More than 200 millimeters of rain have been recorded in many areas. As a result, local dams and rivers are starting to spill. The weather bureau is warning of a serious risk of flash floods and landslides. Officials are asking people to avoid unnecessary travel. The government says the emergency services and military troops are on standby to help people. The rainfall will continue for at least the next two days.
