Interventions

Russian law enforcement officials said the number of people arrested at the airport in Makhachkala, capital of the Muslim-majority Russian republic of Dagestan, rose to 60 after Sunday’s incidents. The Russian Interior Ministry added in a statement that during the clash with the attackers at Makhachkala airport, nine police officers were injured, two of whom were hospitalized.

“Dozens” of militants were killed

The Israeli military said on Monday that its forces killed “dozens” of militants during nighttime fighting in the Gaza Strip, in retaliation for a bloody October 7 attack by Palestinian Hamas in Israel.

“Troops killed dozens of terrorists who tried to defend themselves in buildings and tunnels,” the army said. A warplane targeted a building “with more than 20 Hamas terrorists inside”.

Blocking Humanitarian Assistance: A “Crime”

The head of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Karim Khan, warned on Sunday that preventing humanitarian aid from entering the Gaza Strip is a crime. “Preventing the delivery of aid is a crime,” an International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor warned journalists on Sunday, visiting the Rafah border region, which connects Egypt with Gaza, where international aid to Palestinian civilians stacks up. “In Rafah, far from the hungry mouths and wounds of Gaza residents, I saw trucks full of goods and humanitarian aid,” he added.

According to the magistrate, “Israel must ensure without delay that civilians in Gaza receive food and medicine”.
