The death toll due to Israel’s unnecessary war in Gaza is spiralling

The unnecessary war between Gaza ("Hamas") and Israel continues today. According to CNN, the death toll is rising at alarming rates amid reports that Israel is illegally targeting residential buildings and media outlets in their quest to quash the so-called terrorist organisation. (Legally ("Hamas") has been declared a terrorist organisation by dozens of countries.) But the problems on that front are razor thin in comparison to the sheer destruction Israel is mounting against the Gaza strip and it is costing people their lives. CNN notes that contrary to Israel 's claims it does appear that Israel is intentionally targeting certain areas whilst leading a misinformation campaign to trick "Hamas" militants into going into certain buildings.

Israel braces for war as Trump violates foreign policy naming new capital

ISRAEL --  In a move that has already sparked protests, Israeli forces, are preparing for the worst: yet another Arab-Israeli war that could be the deadliest in history.   This week,  Donald Trump, declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel, breaking with decades of foreign policy.
