Biden: Netanyahu 'hurting Israel' by not preventing more civilian deaths in Gaza President Joe Biden said Saturday that he believes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “hurting Israel more than helping Israel” in how he is approaching its war against Hamas in Gaza. The U.S. leader expressed support for Israel’s right to pursue Hamas after the Oct. 7 attack, but said of Netanyahu that “he must pay more attention to the innocent lives being lost as a consequence of the actions taken.” Biden has for months warned that Israel risks losing international support over mounting civilian casualties in Gaza, and…
WESTERN PERSPECTIVE Pope says Ukraine should have 'courage of the white flag' of negotiations Pope Francis has said in an interview that Ukraine should have what he called the courage of the "white flag" and negotiate an end to the war with Russia that followed Moscow's full-scale invasion two years ago and that has killed tens of thousands. Francis made his comments in an interview recorded last month with Swiss broadcaster RSI, well before Friday's latest offer by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan to host a summit between Ukraine and Russia to end the war. Erdogan made the fresh offer after…
A ship with Gaza aid is preparing to inaugurate a sea route from Cyprus to the war-ravaged strip A ship bearing humanitarian aid was making preparations to leave Cyprus and head for Gaza, the European Commission president said Friday as international donors launched a sea corridor to supply the besieged territory that is facing widespread hunger after five months of war. The opening of the corridor, along with the recent inauguration of airdrops of aid, showed increasing frustration with the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and a new international willingness to work around Israeli restrictions. The vessel belonging to Spain’s Open…
WESTERN PERSPECTIVE Ukraine to receive 6 bln euro from EU in next two months, PM says Ukraine will receive 6 billion euros ($6.6 billion) from the European Union via its four-year Ukraine facility in the next two months, Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said on Friday. The government expects to receive 4.5 billion euros in March and another 1.5 billion euros in April, Shmyhal told a government meeting. "This year, we aim to receive about 16 billion euros from the European Union. Ukraine will have the resources to fight and win. It is our key objective and we will do everything…
Gaza ceasefire talks show no sign of progress, US says onus on Hamas Hamas on Thursday left Gaza ceasefire talks in Cairo where there was no sign of progress just days before the start of Ramadan, while the U.S. said the onus was on the Palestinian militant group to strike a deal on Israeli hostages. Israel and Hamas blamed each other for the lack of agreement after four days of talks mediated by Qatar and Egypt about a 40-day ceasefire amid fears violence could escalate during the Muslim fasting month. Egyptian security sources said talks, taking place without an Israeli…
RUSSIAN PERSPECTIVE No attack perpetrated on Zelensky's motorcade in Odessa — Medvedev No one planned to mount an attack on Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky's motorcade in Odessa, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said. "Everything here is obvious to everyone. Both that there was no attack on the motorcade in Odessa, and [moreover] that if a target had been set, they (Russian forces - TASS) would have hit it," Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel, commenting on the explosion that occurred on March 6 in Odessa in close proximity to the motorcade of Zelensky and his guest, visiting Greek…
Pressure grows on Israel to open more aid routes into Gaza by land and sea as hunger spreads Efforts to get desperately needed humanitarian aid to war-wracked northern Gaza gained momentum Wednesday with the European Union increasing pressure for the creation of a sea route from Cyprus to Gaza and British Foreign Minister David Cameron saying that Israel’s allies were losing patience. While aid groups say all of Gaza is mired in a humanitarian crisis, the situation in the largely isolated north stands out. Many of the estimated 300,000 people still living there have been reduced to eating animal fodder…
WESTERN PERSPECTIVE Zelensky’s convoy narrowly avoids Russian missile A Russian missile nearly hit a convoy carrying Volodymyr Zelensky to a meeting with the Greek prime minister in Odesa. The strike landed “very close” to the Ukrainian president’s motorcade in the southern port city, Kyriakos Mitsotakis told reporters. A Greek official later said it exploded just 300 metres from the Ukrainian president. “We saw this strike today,” Mr Zelensky told an open-air news conference outside the ruins of the Transfiguration Cathedral, which was partially reduced to rubble in a Russian missile attack last summer. “You see who we’re dealing with. They…
Gaza cease-fire talks fail to achieve a breakthrough with Ramadan just days away, Egypt says Three days of negotiations with Hamas over a cease-fire in Gaza and the release of Israeli hostages failed to achieve a breakthrough on Tuesday, Egyptian officials said, less than a week before the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the informal deadline for a deal. The nearly five months of fighting left much of Gaza in ruins and created a worsening humanitarian catastrophe, with many, especially in the devastated northern region, scrambling for food to survive. “We must get more aid into Gaza,”…
WESTERN PERSPECTIVE Ukraine says it has sunk a Russian patrol ship near Crimea Ukrainian sea drones hit and sank a Russian Black Sea Fleet patrol ship off occupied Crimea in an overnight attack, the Ukrainian military said on Tuesday. Ukraine's GUR military intelligence agency said a special unit called Group 13 had fired Magura V5 maritime drones at the Sergey Kotov near the Kerch Strait, which connects the Sea of Azov to the Black Sea. It said on the Telegram messaging app that the vessel had sustained damage to the stern, starboard and port sides, at an estimated cost of…
