US-Israeli genocide in Gaza

More deaths and destruction have been reported as the Israeli regime keeps pounding civilian structures across the Gaza Strip with airstrikes and artillery. At least 20 Palestinians were killed in the northern city of Beit Hanoun. Ten more were killed in the Gaza City. In the south, two Palestinians were killed in a refugee camp in the flashpoint city of Rafah. The Israeli military continues its offensive in Rafah despite a Friday order by the International Court of Justice to halt its military operation there. According to the Gaza Health Ministry, 46 people were killed in the past day across the besieged strip. Nearly 36,000 Palestinians have been killed since last October when the Israeli genocide began, mostly women and children. More than 80,000 others have been also injured. 

Israel defies ICJ ruling

A UN special rapporteur has called for sanctions on Israel after the regime ignored the International Court of Justice’s new order to stop its attack on Rafah. Francheska Albanese, the UN special rapporteur on the occupied Palestinian territories, said following the ICJ’s order the regime has intensified its attacks on Rafah. She added that the current situation in the refugee-packed city is terrifying. Albanese urged UN member states to suspend diplomatic and political ties with Israel over its defiance of the ICJ’s orders. She also called for an arms embargo against the regime.

Anti-Netanyahu protests

Israeli forces have once again violently clashed with thousands of protesters in Tel Aviv calling for snap elections and the resignation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Regime forces used water cannons to disperse the demonstrators who slammed Netanyahu’s policies, saying he has failed to secure the release of the captives held in Gaza. They demanded that the Israeli cabinet strike a deal with the Hamas resistance movement to return the captives. It is estimated that around 130 Israeli captives remain in Gaza. Hamas says dozens of them have been killed so far in Israeli attacks.
