US President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are set to speak on Thursday in their first phone call since an Israeli strike on a humanitarian convoy killed seven aid workers in Gaza. Biden has led a chorus of international anger over the attack on employees of US-based World Central Kitchen, who were distributing desperately needed food to a population on the verge of famine. “I can confirm President Biden and Prime Minister Netanyahu will speak tomorrow,” a US official told AFP on Wednesday. The call comes after Biden said he was “outraged and heartbroken” by the deadly…

Berlin (29/2 – 30) Ukrainian officials are concerned that Russian advances could gain significant momentum by the summer unless their allies can increase the supply of ammunition, according to a person familiar with their analysis. Internal assessments of the situation on the battlefield from Kyiv are growing increasingly bleak as Ukrainian forces struggle to hold off Russian attacks while rationing the number of shells they can fire. Commander-in-Chief Oleksandr Syrskyi said Thursday that mistakes by frontline commanders had compounded the problems facing Ukraine’s defense around Avdiivka, which was captured by Russian forces this month. Syrskyi said he’d sent in more…

Researchers from the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) have unveiled a groundbreaking study with the potential to transform bladder cancer treatment.  Their innovation? Tiny nanorobots, almost science-fictional in nature, which have demonstrated remarkable effectiveness in reducing bladder tumors by a staggering 90% in mice. The team has published their findings in the peer-reviewed science journal Nature Nanotechnology. In this article, we’ll delve deeper into the details. A NEW HOPE FOR BLADDER CANCER PATIENTS Bladder cancer, a prevalent disease especially among men, has long been a challenge for medical professionals. While not as deadly as some cancers, its tendency to reappear makes…

Toronto, Alaska (16/11 – 50) Our lives are being maneuvered and we are being manipulated by unelected, insidious forces, toward objectives not necessarily in the people’s interest. Now that the so-called “pandemic”, declared by the mysterious self-appointed World Health Organization, and followed obediently by governments everywhere, has been decreed “finished”, we should devote a moment to introspection, considering who is running the show and for whose benefit, as governments gaily abdicated their vested responsibility to govern. Pandemic is over? I hope they told those killer viruses who destroyed the population of Europe and North America. What? Oh, just 1% mortality?…

The US has conducted “precision” air strikes in Syria on facilities used by the Iranian revolutionary guard, the Pentagon has said. Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin said the strikes were in response to “continued attacks” on US bases in Iraq and Syria by Iran-backed fighters.

They come amid rising tensions in the region due to the Israel-Hamas war. Mr Austin confirmed the air strikes in a brief statement on Sunday, saying…

If this Gaza war was like all the others, a ceasefire would probably have been in force by now. The dead would be buried and Israel would be arguing with the United Nations about how much cement could come into Gaza for rebuilding. But this war is not like that. It is not just because of the enormity of the killing, first by Hamas on 7 October, mostly of Israeli civilians, followed by Israel’s “mighty vengeance” as its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it, which has mostly killed Palestinian civilians. This war is different to the others because it comes…

As the ripple effects from the war between Israel and Hamas are felt around the world, Palestinian and Jewish Americans describe a growing sense of fear due to a rise in threats and harassment. As hundreds of people gathered for a peaceful rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on 13 October, a man wielding a gun started yelling racial slurs. People scattered, running for their lives, said Omar Mussa, who had helped organise the pro-Palestinian event on the steps of the state Capitol. “He came to this rally to inflict fear and terror onto us,” the 30-year-old Palestinian American told the BBC.…
