Russian military facility targeted by gunman



Russian military facility targeted by gunman as Moscow continues to target Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure

A Russian military facility training facility has been targeted by gunman, leaving 11 people dead.

15 others have been wounded.

It’s believed the attackers were from a former Soviet republic and were also shot dead during the altercation.

The targeted group had volunteered to fight in the war and were at a training camp in Russia’s Belgorod region, an area bordering Ukraine.

Rape accusations

This comes as a UN envoy accuses Russia of using rape as a military strategy.

The envoy confirmed rape is is being used as a a “deliberate tactic to dehumanise the victims.”

“When women are held for days and raped, when you start to rape little boys and men, when you see a series of genital mutilations, when you hear women testify about Russian soldiers equipped with Viagra – it’s clearly a military strategy,” the envoy said.

The United Nations has now verified more than a hundred cases of rape or sexual violence in Ukraine since the war began.

The victims are mostly women and girls, but also men and boys.

Civilian infrastructure targeted

Russia’s military is continuing to target civilian infrastructure.

As Zaporizhzhia is pounded, an energy facility near Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv was also hit.

Kyiv says Russia has been increasingly deploying so-called “kamikaze drones” in its attacks.

Meanwhile, Moscow has ramped up its evacuations from the Kherson region where Ukrainian counteroffensive has reportedly intensified.

In the U.S., speaking to Face the Nation on CBS, Ukraine’s ambassador to America stressed the importance of nuclear deterrence.

This is in response to comments from French President Macron who stated he would not commit to making a strike in retaliation if Russia used nuclear force.

“We in Ukraine will resist and we will not give up regardless of what Russian Federation uses against us,” the ambassador said. “We have, I think, proven it. From rockets, to atrocities, to anything that they try to do in Ukraine, it doesn’t break our will. There is no point for Russian Federation using anything else. It will not stop us in defending our homes.”

Israeli soldiers use water cannons to stop protestors from breaking into PM’s house



Dramatic scenes in Israel as protestors take to the streets demanding a controversial judicial reform plan be scrapped

Dramatic scenes are unfolding in Israel following news the nation’s leader Benjamin Netanyahu has fired his defence minister.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired Defense Minister Yoav Gallant on Sunday after Gallant called for a halt to a controversial judicial reform plan.

Gallant, a lawmaker from Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party, broke ranks on Saturday by publicly urging Netanyahu to suspend the legislation.

He said, “The growing rift in our society is penetrating the Israel Defense Forces and security agencies. This poses a clear, immediate, and tangible threat to the security of the state. I will not allow this.”

His dismissal marks the largest public fracture in Netanyahu’s coalition government over the proposed reforms that have sparked mass protests and even dissent from some in the nation’s revered military.

Others in Netanyahu’s party have begun to waver: A top lawmaker echoed the defense chief’s call to pause the contested judicial overhaul on Sunday.

Dissent from the premier’s own party and cabinet has compounded months of unprecedented mass protests by Israelis who fear the package of reforms could endanger court independence.

Netanyahu, who is on trial on graft charges that he denies, says the overhaul will balance out the branches of government.

A key bill effectively giving his religious-nationalist coalition more control over the appointment of judges is expected to be brought for ratification this week in the Knesset, where he and his allies wield 64 out of 120 seats.

But how – or even if – that as-yet-unscheduled vote will proceed has been thrown into question by Likud dissenters. #trending #featured
