The Israeli government decided to extend the country's coronavirus lockdown to the end of the month after a spike in infections, despite an intensive vaccination campaign.

  • Israeli PM meets with President Biden amid heightened tensions in Mideast

    Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's meeting with President Joe Biden comes in the midst of heightened tensions with its regional archenemy, Iran, and as Israel grapples with a gradual resurgence of hostilities on its southern border with the Gaza Strip. Deeply concerned over a possible revival of the Iran nuclear deal, "Naftali Bennett wants clear answers from the US president," explains Dr. Emmanuel Navon, Professor of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Tel Aviv. Especially in light of the fact that "the US administration itself has been admitting recently that it has very low expectations from a new deal with Iran." Further complicating matters, Dr. Navon warns, citing Israeli intelligence, "Iran is a couple of months away from the threshold of obtaining the bomb." And for Dr. Navon, this begets the question: "What would be the point of such an agreement as it would not be able to block Iran's path to the bomb." Amid the turmoil in Afghanistan, Dr. Navon suggests the US should now pursue a pragmatic and 'tranformative' remedy towards their Iran nuclear policy. Somewhat akin to the phoeinx rising from the ashes: from tragedy to triumph. And this stark advice comes equipped with a scathing rebuke of the precipitous US withdrawal from a 20-year war and the Taliban's stunning return to power. "If the United States wants to build it's credibility, and it's deterrence in the region, it should transform the humiliation in Afghanistan into a coherent policy towards Iran."

  • Jewish-Arab tensions inside Israeli civil society ‘quite unseen, worrying’ amid escalating violence

    While the conflict between Israel and Gaza could be spiralling out of control, tension has also been rising inside of Israel, where towns with mixed Jewish and Arab populations have been struck by some of the worse communal violence in decades. Hundreds of people have been arrested after mutual attacks. “This is quite unseen and worrying that the tension could be exploding in the very centre of the country”, specialist in Israeli civil society Jean-Marc Liling analyses from Tel Aviv.

  • Palestinians, Israeli police clash amid tensions over east Jerusalem neighbourhood

    Jerusalem, May 9 (EFE/EPA).- Hundreds of Palestinian protesters were wounded on Sunday during clashes with Israeli security forces amid growing tension over the potential eviction of six Palestinian families from homes on land claimed by Jewish settlers. The Israeli Supreme Court had postponed the 10 May hearing into the ruling by an Israeli court in East Jerusalem that ordered the forced eviction of six Palestinian families from their homes in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in favor of Jewish families who claimed they used to live in the houses before fleeing in the 1948 war that led to the creation of Israel. Thousands of Israelis, including right-wing groups, are expected to join the 'Flag March' on 10 May which is considered 'Jerusalem Day', an Israeli national holiday that celebrates the establishment of Israeli control over the Old City in the aftermath of the June 1967 Six-Day War. The Flag March route goes through the old city quarters and Damascus gate, ending at the Western Wall.(Camera: ATEF SAFADI).

  • Ce train est le premier TGV à concurrencer la SNCF en France

    TRANSPORT - Pour un premier voyage sans encombre face au TGV de la SNCF, la compagnie italienne Trenitalia aligne des prix bas, des fauteuils de cuir et des machines à café de compétition. Partie à 7h26 de la Gare de Lyon à Paris, la Frecciarossa (flèche rouge) 9281 est arrivée à Lyon à 9h18 le samedi 18 décembre, avec deux minutes d’avance, avant de poursuivre son chemin jusqu’en Italie. Pas de drapeaux ni de sirènes syndicales au départ pour protester contre l’arrivée sur les rails français du premier train à grande vitesse en concurrence frontale avec la SNCF. Seul problème, technique: les écrans de la gare ne peuvent pas encore afficher le logo rouge de Trenitalia. “Le train est plein”, se réjouit Roberto Rinaudo, le directeur général de Trenitalia France (ex-Thello). Un effet de curiosité, des prix attractifs et aussi la peur de la grève SNCF, finalement évitée in extremis, ont attiré les clients. ----- Abonnez-vous à la chaîne YouTube du HuffPost dès maintenant : https://www.youtube.com/c/lehuffpost Pour plus de contenu du HuffPost: Web: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LeHuffPost/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/LeHuffPost Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lehuffpost/ Pour recevoir gratuitement notre newsletter quotidienne: https://www.huffingtonpost.fr/newsletter/default/
