The United States is in contact with Israelis, Palestinians and other partners in the region to restore calm in Gaza after the Israeli offensive.

The goal is “to achieve peace and calm after the bombings,” National Security Council communications coordinator John Kirby said at a press conference held by digital media.

“We urge all parties to avoid further escalation [do conflito]. We maintain our unwavering commitment to the security of Israel and the world. We continue to work to strengthen all aspects of the US-Israel alliance,” the spokesman said.

In this sense, he expressed the “full support” of the United States for Israel’s right to self-defense against “terrorist groups”, which, as he recalled, claimed the lives of “innocent civilians.”

Kirby stressed that Washington remains committed to the two-state solution, one Israeli and one Palestinian, and recalled that this was one of the messages conveyed by President Joe Biden last month during his visit to Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

However, he warned that the US needs to see that both sides are committed to this solution to the conflict.

“Preemptive Strike” and “First Response”

Israel’s “preemptive attack” on the Gaza Strip this Friday killed “number two” Palestinian Islamic Jihad (JIP) and threatens to escalate violence in the region.

The Israeli bombings that followed the country’s army preceded the “imminent threat” of an attack from Gaza and have so far killed at least 10 and wounded 55 people.

A five-year-old girl was also among the casualties, according to the Palestinian health ministry, who, like Al-Jabari, was killed in an airstrike on a residential building in Gaza City that houses media and non-governmental organizations. government

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.
