 Deadly Incident

Over 100 Palestinians were killed and hundreds more were injured when Israeli troops opened fire on a crowd waiting for food aid in Gaza City. The incident took place on Harun al-Rashid Street, where aid trucks carrying flour were expected to arrive. Israeli soldiers claimed they thought the Palestinians posed a threat, leading to the tragic event. Many people were also run over by the aid trucks during the chaos.

International Response

Outrage and Condemnation

The Palestinian authorities and witnesses described the incident as a massacre, as people were desperately waiting for food aid. The United Nations and various countries, including Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, and France, condemned the attack and called for Israel to respect international humanitarian laws.

Denial and Defense

The Israeli military denied the allegations of intentionally causing harm and claimed that the situation escalated due to a stampede when the aid trucks arrived. They also stated that the risk of famine in Gaza is due to the lack of sufficient food supplies entering the region.

Political Fallout

The incident occurred during negotiations between Israel and Hamas to cease Israeli aggression and allow humanitarian aid into Gaza. Despite efforts from various countries, including the US, to seek answers and condemn the killings, the situation remains tragic with no immediate breakthrough expected.

 

 Tragedies are revealed

In the 146th Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip, a deadly massacre killed more than 112 people and injured more than 250 who were waiting for help in the northern part of the besieged Strip

Despite Israel’s announcement that it is withdrawing the paratrooper unit from the fighting in Gaza, the military has acknowledged that identifying and destroying Hamas’ tactics is proving challenging

U.S. president Joe Biden has said that a ceasefire in Gaza may not happen as quickly as previously expected.

"The dough that killed them."

In the northern Gaza Strip, more than 112 Palestinians lost their lives and another 800 were injured in what is now known as the "Pishta Massacre" when occupying forces targeted them as they congregated for help on the Nabulsi road towards the distance. U.S. the president expressed concern that the incident could complicate hostage negotiations.

Al Jazeera reported that the death toll had risen to 112 due to difficult counts due to heavy Israeli shelling in the area

Distribution of animals

The Jordanian Armed Forces joined forces with Oman and Bahrain to deliver aid and food aid to Gaza twice. In addition, Egyptian and Emirati aircraft dropped aid on the Gaza Strip.

There are uncertainties

The Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigade signaled the fate of Israeli prisoners, indicating that Israeli families imprisoned in Gaza are now heading towards Jerusalem, some of whom may have died as a result of ongoing attacks in Gaza so.

 Violence is widespread

Two settlers were killed in a shootout near Eli's settlement in the West Bank, while Israeli forces reported killing a Palestinian near a gas station

A young man was buried after being killed by Israeli soldiers in Nablus. The number of detainees in the West Bank rose to 7,325, with 20 Palestinians now under arrest.

The actions of Hezbollah

Hezbollah attacked Israeli positions in Lebanon, causing casualties on both sides. There is speculation that Israel may conduct ground operations in southern Lebanon in the near future.

International participation

The United States and Britain launched an offensive in Yemen targeting the coastal province of Hodeida. The Houthis vowed to continue their operations in support of the Palestinians in Gaza.

These new developments highlight the ongoing conflict and tragedy in the region.

  Israeli Aggression Continues

On the 136th day of the Israeli war on Gaza, the aggression against the Gaza Strip is ongoing, leading to more humanitarian crises. At the same time, the International Court of Justice has started hearings on the legal consequences of the occupation of Palestinian territories in 1967.

Palestinian Hospitals Struggle

The Palestine Red Crescent Society reported that the water desalination plant at Al Amal Hospital in Khan Yunis was damaged by Israeli forces, leaving the hospital with only 3 days' worth of drinking water. Hospitals in northern Gaza are also without electricity due to the occupation preventing fuel delivery.

Diplomatic Tensions

Brazil's President withdrew the country's ambassador from Israel after accusing Israel of committing "genocide" in Gaza. In response, Israel summoned the Brazilian ambassador for a reprimand.

Field Updates

The Al-Qassam Brigades targeted an Israeli force in Khan Yunis, while the Al-Quds Brigades bombed Israeli soldiers in the Netzarim area. The Israeli government continues efforts to release prisoners in Gaza, claiming Hamas uses hospitals for military purposes.

Settler Attacks

Israeli forces arrested 25 citizens in the West Bank, and settlers attacked homes and vehicles in Burqa. Palestinians in Ramallah threw stones at occupation vehicles, leading to clashes.

Israel Faces International Justice

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu criticized the International Court of Justice's hearings on the legal consequences of the occupation. The court sessions will continue with the participation of 52 countries and international organizations.

Targeting Lebanon

Israeli forces targeted Hezbollah weapons depots in Ghaziyeh, Lebanon, in response to a drone attack. Hezbollah retaliated by targeting Israeli sites in Lebanon. The European Union launched a defensive mission in the Red Sea to protect ships from Houthi attacks. 

Imprisonment and Hope for Freedom

 Major political figure in Pakistan, Imran Khan, was imprisoned last August and has been facing further challenges. His supporters remain steadfast in their belief that he will soon be released from prison and his record will be cleared. They vehemently assert that all accusations leveled against him are baseless fabrications designed to thwart his political ambitions.

A bunch of legal experts say that the decisions against Imran Khan can still be changed, and his lawyer is working hard to prove that he's innocent. But it might take some time because the military in Pakistan is making things difficult for him. 

Support from the People

When reporters went around Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, they found out that a lot of different people really like Imran Khan. They think he's a hero and a great guy. Even people from other political parties feel bad for him because they think he's been treated unfairly.

Some people believe that the recent elections in Pakistan were rigged to make it seem like Imran Khan's supporters didn't win as many seats as they actually did. They say that the results were messed with at the last minute to make it look like Imran Khan's party didn't do as well as they really did.

Protests and Hope for Justice

There have been protests in Pakistan against the election results that brought Imran Khan down. His supporters are fighting for him to be released from prison and for the truth to come out. They believe that the courts will prove that he's innocent.

Even regular people in Pakistan, not just his supporters, think that Imran Khan will be set free soon. They believe that the accusations against him are all lies and that he will be proven innocent.

Political Rivalry and False Accusations

A lawyer named Arif Chaudhry thinks that Imran Khan will be free soon. He says that all the cases against him are just made up to stop him from being a part of politics. Chaudhry has been a lawyer for a long time and he's sure that Imran Khan will be cleared of all charges.

Chaudhry also says that Imran Khan is really popular in Pakistan because he cares about the people and tries to help them. He built hospitals, schools, and universities to make life better for everyone. People believe in him and support him because they know he's a good leader.

Dr. Sajid Iqbal, a distinguished Professor of Islamic and Civil Law at the University of Business Administration and Technology in Lahore, shared his insights on the recent electoral process during a meeting in Islamabad. He expressed concerns about the numerous manipulations that marred the electoral process, leading to inaccurate results in various constituencies across the country. Dr. Iqbal highlighted the objections raised against multiple results in different regions.

Despite his affiliation with the Jamaat-e-Islami, a political rival to the PTI, Dr. Iqbal voted for its candidate in Lahore. He criticized the authorities for obstructing Imran Khan's supporters, preventing them from achieving favorable results in the elections. Dr. Iqbal emphasized that despite these obstacles, Imran Khan's party secured the highest number of votes, suggesting that fair elections would have resulted in even greater support.

In response to the charges against Imran Khan, Dr. Iqbal dismissed them as politically motivated and lacking legal merit. He expressed confidence that the Supreme Court would dismiss the charges, leading to Imran Khan's release from prison.

Political analyst Asima Wadud echoed concerns about military interference in politics, which she believes has hindered democracy and weakened government institutions. In an interview with Al Jazeera Net, Wadud criticized the army's attempts to influence the election outcome and prevent Imran Khan's supporters from forming the government.

Wadud lamented the army's interference in coalition government formation, which she viewed as a strategy to undermine the will of the people. She emphasized the need to respect the voters' choice and allow for a fair and transparent electoral process.

 

Inflicting Heavy Losses

Abu Ubaida, the spokesman for the Al-Qassam Brigades, recently stated that the Mujahideen of the Brigades are causing significant damage to the Israeli occupation army. Despite efforts to protect them, Israeli prisoners in the Gaza Strip are facing large losses.

Abu Ubaida shared in an exclusive speech on Al Jazeera that the Al-Qassam Brigades are continuously causing heavy losses to the Israeli occupation army. They are destroying armor, setting up precise ambushes, and professionally sniping officers. The fighters are always ready and strike when the enemy least expects it.

Field Achievements

Abu Ubaida mentioned that the Al-Qassam Brigades are not concerned with refuting the enemy's claims. The occupation army's statements are seen as false propaganda that will be proven wrong in the future.

The spokesman emphasized that the political goals of the occupation leaders will lead to their downfall and disgrace. The Al-Qassam Brigades are focused on their mission and will continue fighting until the last soldier leaves Gaza.

Situation of Occupation Prisoners

Abu Ubaida expressed concern for the Israeli prisoners in Gaza, stating that their losses are significant and they are struggling to survive. Despite warnings, the occupation leadership continues to ignore their plight.

The Al-Qassam Brigades have tried to protect and care for the enemy's prisoners to achieve a humanitarian goal of liberating their own oppressed prisoners. The prisoners are suffering, and the responsibility lies with the enemy's leadership and army. It is important to note that Abu Ubaida's last public statement was a month ago, where he discussed the removal of a thousand Israeli military vehicles during the 100 days of the Israeli war on Gaza.

Israel's Attack on Iranian Gas Pipelines

Last Wednesday, Israel reportedly carried out attacks on two main natural gas pipelines inside Iran, disrupting the flow of heat and cooking gas to several provinces. This marks a significant escalation in the ongoing secret war between Israel and Iran, involving air, land, sea, and cyber-attacks.

Impact of the Attacks

The attacks targeted points along gas pipelines in Fars and Chahar Mahal Bakhtiari provinces, causing service outages in residential homes, government buildings, and major factories across at least five provinces in Iran. These pipelines transport gas from the south to major cities in the north, such as Tehran and Isfahan.

Consequences of the Attacks

Energy experts estimate that the attacks halted about 15% of Iran's daily natural gas production, affecting the country's vital infrastructure. The attacks required deep knowledge of Iranian infrastructure and careful coordination, according to Western officials and military strategists.

Disruption of Gas Flow

Iranian Oil Minister Jawad Oji stated that the enemy's plan was to disrupt gas flow in the winter to major cities and provinces in Iran. While Oji did not directly blame Israel, he mentioned that the aim was to damage Iran's energy infrastructure and incite domestic discontent.

Uncertainty Surrounding the Attacks

It remains unclear how the pipelines were struck, whether by drones, explosives, or other means. No party has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but Iranian officials suspect Israel due to the complexity and scope of the operation.

Response and Denials

Iran denied involvement in attacks against American and Israeli targets in the region, emphasizing that it does not seek direct war with the United States. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office declined to comment on the attacks.

Previous Incidents

Last December, Iran executed individuals accused of sabotage and links to Israeli intelligence. This hidden war between Iran and Israel has seen accusations of attacks on nuclear and missile programs, though Israel has neither confirmed nor denied these allegations.
