US-Israeli genocide in Gaza 

In Gaza, it's Day 144 of Israel’s onslaught, which has left a trail of death and destruction. Israeli forces’ live fire has killed at least a dozen Palestinian civilians, including four people waiting for aid, west of Gaza City. Scores of civilians were also killed and wounded in an Israeli drone strike in the central Nuseirat camp. To the south and in Rafah, at least three people, including a woman and a child, were killed in an airstrike that targeted a house. Gaza officials also say the attacks have destroyed the strip’s computing, communications and control system. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Red Crescent Society has announced the complete suspension of its medical missions in Gaza for 48 hours. The PRCS said Israel has failed to ensure the safety of its crews and the wounded. 

Gaza ceasefire talks 

The leader of the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, has slammed, what he called Israel’s war of starvation on Gaza. He says the regime is now stalling ceasefire negotiations to prolong this war. Ismail Haniyeh made the remarks following a meeting with Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. Haniyeh said Palestinians will not allow the regime to use ceasefire negotiations as a cover for its starvation crime against Palestinians. Separately, Hamas slammed US support for the Israeli war of starvation. It said the international community’s inability to stop it is a disgrace to humanity. Hamas added that misleading statements by US officials about the humanitarian situation in Gaza won’t absolve Washington of its responsibility for the situation. 

Israel invasion of Rafah 

As an Israeli invasion of Gaza’s southern city of Rafah looms larger, international warnings of its consequences grow louder and more ominous. Now, the United Nations chief says any such offensive would completely end the UN's assistance programs in the besieged strip. Speaking before the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Guterres said even now, humanitarian aid in Gaza is completely insufficient. He added that International Humanitarian Law remains under attack in Gaza and repeated his calls for a ceasefire. The UN chief said the catastrophic situation in Gaza also shows the ineffectiveness of the Security Council and underlines the need for serious reform to its composition and working methods. Guterres stressed that the Council’s lack of unity on Israel’s onslaught on Gaza has, in his words, severely or perhaps fatally undermined its authority.
