Israeli Defense Minister threatens Iran with military action

Published

on

Benny Gantz’s statements come at a time when Israel is urging countries to take action at the United Nations over a drone attack on the Mercer Street oil tanker in the Arabian Sea last week.

The unreported attack killed two people: a British man hired by security company Ambrey and a member of the Romanian crew, according to shipowner Zodiac Maritime, a London-based international company owned by Israeli Eyal Ofer.

Israel, like the United States and Britain, immediately accused Iran of orchestrating the attack, but neither provided evidence to support their claims. Tehran, which has launched similar attacks with allied regional militias, has denied involvement.

Speaking on the Ynet news site, Gantz responded with an emphatic yes about Israel’s willingness to attack Iran.

“We live at a time when we need to take military action against Iran,” Gantz said. “The world must act against Iran now,” he insisted.

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett already expressed a similar opinion.

“I just heard that Iran is cowardly trying to evade responsibility in this case, which they deny. [qualquer envolvimento]… Therefore, I can say with complete confidence that Iran carried out an attack on the ship. […]… There is evidence of this, ”he said at a weekly government meeting.

“We hope that the international community will send a clear signal to the Iranian regime that it has made a grave mistake. In any case, we know how to send a message to Iran in our own way, ”he added, without specifying.

The incident, reported just a week ago against the Mercer Street oil tanker, is the first known victim after years of attacks on commercial ships in the region over tensions with Iran.

In a video posted on social media, Sanna Marin dances and sings with a group of friends. As a result, opposition party leaders are demanding that the 36-year-old government official undergo a drug test, and argue that such an attitude is not appropriate for a government official.

Suitcases containing the remains of two children sold at auction in New Zealand

Published

on

New Zealand police said the remains of two children were found in suitcases bought at an auction in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Waaelua said that the bodies of the victims, aged between five and ten years, were probably hidden for several years in two suitcases of the same size.

“The nature of the discovery makes the investigation challenging, especially given the time that has elapsed between death and discovery,” Waaelua said.

The family found the bags after purchasing a trailer full of items sold in bulk from a warehouse, with an official stating that the family in question was unrelated to the death but “understandably distraught at the find.”

Police, who also called Interpol, are searching the trailer for other household items and personal items to identify the victims.

The warehouse and property where the bags were found were thoroughly inspected by a forensic team.

“We are doing our best to identify the victims” in order to bring to justice the perpetrator or perpetrators of the deaths of these children, Waaelua said.

It is the northernmost permanently inhabited region on the entire globe. And this is also Achilles’ heel of NATO in the Arcticwhat did you once call it Professor of Security Studies.

Formally, Svalbard is under the sovereignty of Norway, but thanks to a century-old treaty, many other countries have the right to exploit its natural resources. In particular, Russia, which has been mining in the region for years, often employs Ukrainian workers, mostly from the Donbass.
