Tel Aviv


Four hostages kidnapped by Hamas have been reunited with their families, after being rescued in a raid that Palestinian officials say killed scores of people.
  • Noa Argamani, 26, Almog Meir Jan, 22, Andrei Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, were freed on Saturday, eight months since being kidnapped from the Nova music festival on 7 October.
    Israeli forces, backed by air strikes, fought intense gun battles with Hamas in the Nuseirat area, in what the Israel Defense Forces called a "high-risk, complex mission".
  • Palestinian officials say women and children were among those killed in the military assault.
    Two hospitals in Gaza, al-Aqsa hospital and al-Awda hospital, said they had counted 70 bodies between them, while Hamas's government media office said at least 210 people had been killed in Israeli strikes in and around the al-Nuseirat refugee camp.
    Israel estimated there were fewer than 100 casualties, IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari said.
    Images from the area show intense bombardment, and hospitals there said they were overwhelmed with casualties, including children, and that they were unable to treat everyone. Other photos show people mourning the dead.

    The United Nations Security Council has voted to support a US-proposed Israel-Gaza ceasefire plan.[/size]
    The proposal sets out conditions for a "full and complete ceasefire", the release of hostages held by Hamas, the return of dead hostages' remains and the exchange of Palestinian prisoners.
    Fourteen of the 15 Security Council members voted in favour of the US-drafted resolution. Russia abstained.
    The resolution states that Israel has accepted the ceasefire proposal, and urges Hamas to agree to it too.
    It means the Security Council joins a number of governments, as well as the G7 group of the world's richest nations, in backing the three-part plan that was unveiled by President Joe Biden on 31 May. Mr Biden described it then as an Israeli ceasefire proposal.
    The vote is likely to increase pressure on both sides to respond positively to the plan with a view to ending the conflict. It also came shortly after[size=inherit] US Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with foreign leaders[/size], including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in an attempt to build support for the peace deal.
    Just hours before the UN vote, Mr Blinken said his message to leaders in the region was: "If you want a ceasefire, press Hamas to say yes."
    Netanyahu walks tightrope as US urges Gaza ceasefire deal.

    Unfortunately the Israeli hostages are civilians and the hamas  prisoners wanted in return for their release are terrorists and murderers ,

    Honestly,  who are the top advisors some of the leaders have,  it's like giving away an own goal.
    What was the full context of him saying that?

    Honestly,  who are the top advisors some of the leaders have,  it's like giving away an own goal.
    What was the full context of him saying that?

     In an interview with ITV, which he left D-Day commemorations in Normandy early in order to attend, he is pressed on how he is able to stay in touch with the struggles of ordinary people when he is 'wealthier than the king'.


    Journalist Paul Brand asks the PM if he ever had 'go without something' when he was a child, to which he replies: 'I went without lots of things because my parents wanted to put everything into our education and that was a priority.'
      ;D


    Also,


    In the latest instalment of the usual election struggle olympics, in which Sunak has been mocked for saying he didn’t have Sky when he was a child, the Greens have provided their examples for the public to judge. I'm not sure these tear-jerkers will convince the public that the Greens understand what life would be like under their brand of socialism…


    Co-leader Carla Denyer said her family had second-hand cars throughout most of her childhood. A terrible burden that’s shared by 82% of passenger vehicles right now…


    Adrian Ramsay had an even better one: he wasn’t allowed pets until he forced his parents to relent. Anyone have a tissue?

    It appears that most, if not all, of the surviving hostages are being held inside the homes of Palestinian "civilians", and have been ever since the beginning of their ordeal. Of course, we must carry on crying a river for those suffering "civilians", must we not, regardless of the evidence.


    Incidentally, I have no idea if the legacy media have made reference to this information yet, but US soldiers and seamen delivering aid to poor traumatised Palestinians by means of Biden's platform or pontoon harbour (or whatever the hell it is) are routinely being fired upon by Hamas. The limp wristed Nancy boys don't seem to be remotely grateful for the assistance bestowed upon them by the Davos crowd and their puppet regime in the White House. In other words, courageous US soldiers are risking their lives purely for the sake of posing for the publicity photos the controlled media use to propagate their endless stream of lies about Israel and the conflict in Gaza. See Breitbart for details, and I would not be surprised if the Western Journal and the Daily Wire were carrying the story too, for they are usually quick off the mark with important stories.


    I have said it before and I will say it again; there is a reason why no Arab nation will host the Palestinians within their own borders. Can anybody guess what it is.......? 🤔

    The G7 has agreed to use frozen Russian assets to raise $50bn (£39bn) for Ukraine to help it fight invading Russian forces.
    US President Joe Biden said it was another reminder to Russia "that we're not backing down", but Moscow has threatened "extremely painful" retaliatory measures.
