Violence ends with a ceasefire in Gaza

A ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants could be the beginning of the end for violence in Gaza

Weapons from both sides were fired minutes before an overnight ceasefire came into effect in Gaza.

The Egypt-brokered deal saw no further violence reported overnight.

At least 44 people have died since the conflict erupted again in May last year.

“Our fight is not with the people of Gaza. Islamic Jihad is an Iranian proxy that wants to destroy the State of Israel and kill innocent Israelis. The head of Islamic Jihad is in Tehran as we speak. We will do whatever it takes to defend our people.”

YAIR Lapid, PRIME MINISTER OF ISRAEL

Meanwhile, the U.S. and United Nations continue to urge both sides to observe the ceasefire and work towards peace.

U.S. President Joe Biden said all parties need “to fully implement [it] and to ensure fuel and humanitarian supplies are flowing into Gaza”.

President Biden is also urging for an investigation into the deaths of civilians.

The leader of the Islamic Jihad’s operations in southern Gaza, Khaled Mansour, was killed over the weekend. Israel believes he is responsible for several acts of terror against Israelis.

“We appreciate the Egyptian efforts that had been exerted to end the Israeli aggression against our people,” a spokesperson for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad said.

However, Israeli officials believe they have “the right to respond strongly” if the ceasefire is violated.

Human error sends the New York Stock Exchange tumbling

We’ve all made mistakes at the office from time to time, but spare a thought for one worker who may have single-handedly brought down the New York Stock Exchange with just one tiny error.

The mistake of one employee has wiped billions of dollars off the charts for some of the globe’s largest companies.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

Bipartisan outrage on Capitol Hill as politicians say the Biden administration is stonewalling their quest for answers

FBI Director Christopher Wray is speaking out for the first time after several batches of classified documents were discovered in U.S. President Joe Biden’s Wilmington home and Washington think tank office.

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.

Currently, both Biden and former President Donald Trump are facing special counsel investigations into their mishandling of classified documents—and just this week, former Vice President Mike Pence turned over classified documents to the DOJ.
