Update on the situation
Here are the highlights of the last 24 hours on the situation in the Middle East.
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”.
AU Dagestan Airport
After yesterday’s attack on the airport in Dagestan, 60 people were arrested and 9 police officers were injured, the ministry said.
In this Muslim-majority Russian republic, anti-Israel mobs hunted down passengers on a flight to Tel Aviv. The incidents were condemned by Dagestan’s authorities, while the United States condemned the “anti-Semitic demonstrations”.
