Israeli regime humiliated in Africa

A senior Israeli diplomat on Saturday (February 18) was removed from the African Union's annual summit in Ethiopia, as a dispute over Israel's accreditation to the bloc escalated.

Images posted online showed AU security personnel confronting the diplomat during the opening ceremony of the summit, before she left the auditorium. The African Union (AU) says Israel's observer status at the 55-nation bloc has been suspended and the regime was not invited to the union's recent summit from which its delegation was kicked out.

Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, made the remarks on Sunday, a day after an Israeli delegation was forced out of the opening ceremony of the AU summit in the Ethiopian capital city of Addis Ababa.

A group of Israeli disinformation contractors hacked into email and social media accounts of senior election officials and President William Ruto’'s close allies just days before the 2022 polls, an investigative report has revealed.
