Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: US-sponsored talks for 2-state solution 'dead in the water since 2009'


U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken urged Israel and the Palestinians to ease tensions following a spike in violence that has put the region on edge. The bloodshed has alarmed the Biden administration as it attempts to find common ground with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's new right-wing government and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.

    In Iraq, water is being used as a weapon of war. We look at how Islamic State militants still control certain key waterways. Next, 50 days of fighting between Israel and Hamas has left 10,000 Palestinians injured, many of whom will remain permanently disabled.
