CITY OF GAZA, Gaza Strip (AP) – Israel attacked the Gaza Strip by the air force in a dramatic escalation, which covered the bombing of the home of a senior Hamas leader, killing a family of 10 in a refugee camp, most of them children, and grinding. a skyscraper with the Associated Press and other media.

The militant group Hamas continued several rocket launches into Israel, including the night bombing of Tel Aviv. The man died Saturday when a rocket hit his home in a coastal metropolitan suburb.

With the U.S. ambassador in attendance, a ceasefire has been added after five days of chaos that have resulted in the deaths of at least 145 Palestinians in Gaza, including 41 children and 23 women and eight dead on the side. civilians, including a 5-year-old boy. President Joe Biden, who has called for a reduction in escalation but has supported the Israeli campaign, spoke separately over the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

According to the Ministry of Health, there were at least two dead and 25 injured in the latest airstrikes, including children and women. The Israeli military has not received any immediate comment.

On Saturday, Israel bombed the home of Khalil al-Hayeh as a high-level figure in the Hamas political wing, saying the building served as part of the group’s “terrorism infrastructure.” There was no immediate report on the fate of Al-Hayeh or the victims.

The bombing of Al-Hayeh’s house showed that Israel expanded its campaign outside the group’s army commanders. Israel says it has killed dozens in the Hamas army, even though Hamas and a smaller Islamic jihadist group have recognized only 20 dead members.

Since the start of the conflict, Israel has destroyed several of Gaza’s tallest residential and office buildings, claiming they contain elements of Hamas ’military infrastructure. On Saturday, he headed for the 12-story al-Jalaa building, where the offices of the AP, Al-Jazeera television network, and other media are located with several floors.

“The advertising marketing campaign will continue for as long as necessary,” Netanyahu stated in a televised speech on Saturday night. He claimed that there was a Hamas navy intelligence within the construction. Israel automatically cites the presence of Hamas as a motive for focusing on certain air defense sites, including residential homes. The military also accused a militant group of using journalists as human shields but did not provide evidence to support the allegations.

The PA has been operating from the building for 15 years, including the previous three wars between Israel and Hamas, without a direct target. During these and current conflicts, news agency cameras from the top-floor office and rooftop terrace provided a 24-hour live image of militant rockets fired at Israel and Israeli airstrikes. They hit the city and its surroundings.

In the afternoon, the army called the owner of the building and warned that the strike would be in an hour. AP personnel and other citizens had been evacuated effectively.
Shortly thereafter, three missiles hit the building and destroyed it, causing it to fall into a giant cloud of dust.

“The world knows less about what is happening in Gaza today because of what happened,” AP chief executive Gary Pruitt said in a statement.” we are greatly surprised and appalled that the Israeli navy is focused on and destroying the building in which the AP administrative center and awesome Gaza statistics agencies are located.”

“This is an incredibly disturbing development. We narrowly prevented loss of lifestyles, ”he stated, adding that the PA changed into in search of statistics from the Israeli government and became in contact with the U.S. State Department for more information.

India lags behind China and Pakistan in nuclear weapons, but not worried

India lags behind China and Pakistan in nuclear weapons, but not worried

India is confident of its blocking power, which will get more punches with the ongoing launch of Agni-V missiles by Rafale troops, as well as the launch of the INS Arighat submarine this year, although it is still far behind in comparison to China and Pakistan with a number of nuclear warheads.

China now has 350 nuclear warheads, while Pakistan has 165, compared to 156 in India, according to a recent study by the Stockholm International Peace Institute (SIPRI) released on Monday.

Nine nuclear powers have some 13,080 nuclear weapons, Russia (6,255) and the United States (5,550) ahead of the others. Others are France (290), United Kingdom (225), Israel (90), and North Korea (40-50). These numbers are, in fact, inaccurate because countries generally keep their nuclear weapons programs secret.

In addition to Russia and the United States, seven other countries developed or developed new weapons systems. “China is in the midst of modernization and proliferation of nuclear weapons, while India and Pakistan also seem to be expanding their nuclear resources,” SIPRI said.
The report comes at a time when India and China have been locked in a military coup east of Ladakh, which erupted in May last year, with no signs of slowing down. However, Pakistan’s new suspension has been in effect since February.

Indian authorities say demolition systems such as ground-based missiles and submarine-powered submarines (called SSBNs), “capable of secured second attacks”, are a better strategy than the actual number of warheads.

“Nuclear weapons are designed to prevent, not fight. Of course, Pakistan has benefited from the proliferation of nuclear weapons with China and North Korea.” However, India is doing well in developing and stabilizing its own methods of preventing domestic use. “

The Strategic Command Force, for example, now introduces the Agni-V arrow of more than 5,000 kilometers, bringing all of Asia and China as well as parts of Europe and Africa into its strike record behind the small archers.

Similarly, the new Rafale aircraft has strengthened the existing “air transport” to deliver nuclear bombs following the modification of the Sukhoi-30MKI, Mirage-2000, and Jaguars in this role.

However, a third of the “nuclear power” is still unreliable. India currently has only one SSBN in the INS Arihant, with a nuclear artery range of 450 kilometers. Countries like the US, Russia, and China have SSBNs with more than 5,000 km of arrows.

India has three more SSBNs under development, INS Arighat is operational this year after a delay. Testing for the development of K-4 missiles, with a distance of 3,500 kilometers, has also been completed, but installation is still a long way off, as previously reported by TOI.

Pakistan has so far lacked offshore particles, although it has examined the 450-mile-long Babel-3 missiles for standard diesel-powered ships. China, after all, has a fleet of 094 or Jin submarines, equipped with 7,400 km JL-2.

Commenting on the “Naya Pakistan” program, he said the oil donation would increase to 600 billion rupees in the next financial year, so the contribution should be increased from 20 to 25 R per liter, while currently the contribution of 5 liters each.

Asked if Pakistan could withdraw from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) program if the Fund rejected the proposals and complied with its demands, the finance minister said Pakistan would not withdraw from the plan, adding that the IMF had asked Pakistan to present its budget so negotiations would continue.

He also said that Saudi Arabia had agreed to include oil in the deferred tariffs, but did not say how much oil Pakistan would receive.

With unemployment, poverty, and inflation, the Pakistani economy is under pressure and the government plans to take about $ 16 billion in major foreign loans in the next financial year to meet growing foreign public debt needs and to meet budget deficits.

Email addresses of 33 people were shared to Google: Police shared the email addresses of 33 students and two members of the WhatsApp and Google teams.

Alarm rises in India over COVID-19 risks

Alarm rises in India over COVID-19 risks

With just overcoming the second destructive wave of coronavirus infection, India has received a renewed warning Tuesday as crowds at train stations and shopping malls reduce congestion after a day behind major cities.

The capital New Delhi, in the north, and the technical hub of southern Bangalore, were among the cities that have begun to impose strict restrictions, as the number of new diseases across the country has plummeted in less than two months.

After a strict five-week closure, Delhi authorities have completely reopened shops and supermarkets, allowing restaurants to have 50% seats. Urban railway networks can operate at 50% capacity and offices are partially open.

“Delhi’s top reporter saw 19,000 people crash last weekend – they just opened up. Are we completely crazy?” Ambrish Mithal, a doctor at Max HealthCare Hospital in New Delhi, said this on Twitter. “Wait # COVID19- explode and blame the government, the hospitals, the country.”

Epidemiologists have warned that a war of attrition as a whole will jeopardize vaccination efforts, as only 5% of the 950 million eligible adults have been vaccinated.

Doctors say the full opening of Delhi is worrying. City officials said they would impose stricter limits if necessary.

Thousands died in the capital in May as oxygen cuts were cut with families on social media to find unusual hospital beds. Many died in the parking lots and the dead left the area.

However, the city government said immunization centers for people between the ages of 18 and 44 would begin to close on Tuesday, as capacity was low.

India recorded an average of 2.4 million shots a day. Health officials say the vaccine should be at least four times higher to prevent a third wave of disease.

At the height of the second wave in April and May, 170,000 people died.

Delta diversity, first identified in India, has accelerated disease outbreaks. And worrying that the virus has spread to mainland India where two-thirds of the population lives with the vaccine has slowed down.
