Israeli handed 3 life sentences for killing Palestinian family
Israel Hayom, the pro-Benjamin Netanyahu daily run by American casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, has repeatedly been accused of publishing propaganda to bolster the Israeli prime minister and his Likud party — and has even been taken to court several times based on these claims. But for the first time, a new study has quantified the paper’s political influence, finding that the daily helped to add at least two Knesset seats to the right-wing bloc during three of Israel’s elections since it began circulation.

Gaza lockdown eased as economy crumbles amid pandemic
More than a quarter of a century after Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat shook hands on the White House lawn, Israel has managed to turn its occupation of Palestinian territory from a burden into an asset. What was for so long a liability – the flagrant violation of international law – has now become a valued commodity. Understanding this development is key to explaining why the Israelis are making peace with two distant Gulf states but not their closest neighbours, the Palestinians – without whom there can be no real peace.
The Israeli police and the so-called Negev Development Authority, the Yoav unit, on Thursday demolished the Bedouin Al-Araqib village for the 178th time. This village is deprived of recognition in the Negev and is under constant threat of displacement and eviction.
Local official Aziz al-Turi said that “Israeli authorities are increasing the village inhabitants’ suffering, and continue to demolish their tents and this time as several times before; they left them homeless and will suffer from the hot weather conditions and the Corona pandemic.”
