AL-Quds Shooting 

Starting with the latest news in the occupied East al-Quds, where there's been a shooting incident. At least nine people are said to have sustained injuries. Three of them are in critical condition. The pre-dawn incident happened when a gunman opened fire on a bus in the Old City of al-Quds. Israeli officials are branding it a terror attack. Regime forces say the shooter is now in custody after a 6-hour chase. His family members are also under arrest. Gaza-based Palestinian resistance movements have hailed the attack as courageous. Hamas is calling it a natural response to Israeli crimes against Palestinians and holy Muslim sites. The Islamic Jihad says it's part of resistance against the occupiers. Earlier this month, a 3-day Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip killed nearly 50 Palestinians. Israeli forces have also recently stepped up raids in the West Bank, killing nearly 60 Palestinians since late March. Over the same period, attacks on Israeli targets have also killed 19 people.

North Korea denuclearization row 

North Korea criticizes the UN chief's call for the complete and verifiable denuclearization of Pyongyang during a visit to the neighboring South. The North has dismissed the remarks by Antonio Guterres as dangerous, accusing him of supporting the hostile policy of the United States. According to Pyongyang, the UN chief's comments lack impartiality and fairness. North Korea says an irreversible denuclearization of the country would be a breach of its sovereignty. Guterres, who was in South Korea on a two-day visit, expressed his commitment to denuclearization of the North, calling it a fundamental objective to bring peace, security and stability to the whole region. Washington and Seoul have for a while raised concerns about Pyongyang preparing to carry out what would be its seventh nuclear test.
