US-Israel genocide

The Israeli massacre of Palestinians in Gaza keeps unfolding as the regime pounds the blockaded territory with airstrikes and artillery now more than four months into the genocidal campaign. At least 50 people were killed in overnight attacks in the central city of Deir al-Balah. Six others were killed after Israeli troops opened fire on displaced people in the southern city of Khan Yunis. Also in the south, Israeli airstrikes killed at least eight people, including children in Rafah. Meanwhile, the regime continued with its artillery shelling on several neighborhoods of the Gaza city which led to mutiple casualties. The Israeli war on Gaza began in early October. So far, it has claimed the lives of over 29,300 Palestinians, mostly women and children. 

ICJ on Israel occupation

The US continues with its unconditional support for the Israeli regime as the ICJ holds the third day of oral hearings on the consequences of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories. The US says the court should not urge Israel to immediately and unconditionally withdraw from the occupied Palestinian territory. In contrast, the Russian representative slammed Israel’s collective punishment of Palestinians in the Gaza strip. The majority of the speakers have demanded that Israel end its occupation. 52 countries and several International organizations are taking part in the six-day oral proceedings at the Hague. At the request of the UN General Assembly, the ICJ will issue a non-binding advisory opinion on the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands.

EU farmer protests

Farmer protests, throughout Europe, continue unabated. Hundreds of Spanish farmers drove their tractors to capital Madrid to make their voices heard. The convoy of tractors disrupted traffic around the Spanish capital. Some farmers headed for the Agriculture Ministry while some others were prevented from entering the city. Also thousands of farmers entered the Greek capital of Athens. They spent the night outside the parliament to protest high energy prices and production costs. Farmers in Poland also took their tractors to the border with Ukraine on Tuesday and blocked the crossing to protest imports of Ukrainian products. Farmers have been out protesting for weeks across European countries. They are dissatisfied with rising costs and taxes, excessive environmental rules and competition from cheap food imports.
