Israel Syria attacks

Israel has carried out another missile strike on Syria, targeting positions across the central Homs province. According to the Syrian military, the country’s air defenses intercepted Israeli missiles, shooting down some of them. The attacks left five Syrian soldiers injured and also caused material damage. The strike was the third such aggression against Syria in the past four days. The regime targeted positions near the country’s capital city of Damascus in the previous attacks. Syria has repeatedly complained to UN Security Council, calling for an end to such Israeli acts of aggression. Syria says such attacks are a continuation of the fascist approach of the Israeli entity to countries of the region.

Palestinian killed

A young Palestinian has been killed by Israeli forces after a car-ramming attack in the south of the occupied West Bank. The victim was identified as 23-year-old Mohammad Ra’ed Baradiyah. A statement by the regime’s army said the car ramming attack near the town of Beit Ummar left three Israeli soldiers injured. Meanwhile, Palestinian resistance groups have hailed the attack, with the Islamic Jihad saying it’s a natural response to recent killing of a Palestinian man near al-Aqsa Mosque and the storming of the compound. Hamas also said resistance groups are ready to defend al-Quds and al-Aqsa Mosque, adding that the regime’s atrocities will not be left unanswered. Israeli forces have killed more than 90 Palestinians, mostly in the occupied West Bank, so far this year.

US deadly storms

A devastating storm has ripped through southern and central United States, claiming the lives of at least 21 people so far and leaving hundreds more injured. The state of Tennessee was the hardest hit with seven deaths. Other fatalities were reported in Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Mississippi and Alabama. The high winds, heavy rains and tornadoes have caused damage to thousands of buildings, flipped over vehicles, and downed trees and power lines since they began on Friday. The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for states of New York and Pennsylvania, as the deadly storms make it towards the eastern parts of the US. Gusts of up to a 100 kilometers per hour are also forecast for Washington DC. The Weather Service has warned of power outages in some of those areas.
