'Gaza catastrophic situation'

The Gaza Strip is enduring relentless Israeli airstrikes and shelling, with more Palestinians losing their lives in fresh attacks. The regime has targeted several areas near the southern city of Khan Yunis. They include Hamad town, where five dead bodies were recovered from under the rubble. Israeli warplanes also struck some neighborhoods in Gaza City and its vicinity. The regime shelled east of the Bureij refugee camp and targeted homes in the Nuseirat camp in central Gaza as well. Those attacks led to the killing of several Palestinians. Israel unleashed its war on Gaza in early October. Over 31,600 Palestinians have been killed so far. The war rages on while Gazans are observing the holy month of Ramadan amid severe food shortages. The UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA says people in the coastal silver are on the brink of famine. Doctors Without Borders also says the current situation in Gaza is catastrophic and indescribable.

Israel targeting Gaza experts

The Israeli regime has systematically targeted information technology experts, as well as programmers and computer technicians as part of its genocidal war on the Gaza Strip. According to Euro-Med Human Rights Monitor, the Israeli military has killed hundreds of people with expertise in the blockaded territory, especially those proficient in information technology as well as other elites such as doctors and academics. The rights watchdog has compiled a list of technology specialists, namely those with expertise in programming and artificial intelligence, who were killed in the regime’s incessant onslaught. The group says it possesses documents showing the Israeli military has launched direct and devastating attacks on headquarters of IT companies as well.

Putin warns West

Vladimir Putin has issued a warning to the West over the Ukraine war shortly after early results of Russia’s presidential election showed he’ll remain in power. Putin says the presence of Western troops in Ukraine can put the world on the verge of World War III. Putin also touched upon peace talks over Ukraine. He expressed Russia’s readiness for talks on a French proposal for a ceasefire during this summer’s Olympic Games. Putin, however, said he will take into account Russia’s interests on the frontline of the war. He added that Russian Armed Forces hold the initiative on the battlefield as they have made advances in Ukraine. On Saturday, the French President Emmanual Macron said his country will ask Moscow to observe a ceasefire in Ukraine during the Olympic Games, where Russian athletes are banned to compete under their country’s flag.
