"The Constitution does not authorize the government to lie to the people. When they are caught lying, as they have been, they become illegitimate. It is that illegitimate government which is a threat to Democracy!" -- Michael Rivero

Hezbollah carried out on June 14 more than ten attacks against Israel, targeting military sites, equipment, troops and settlements near the Lebanese border.

In separate statements, Hezbollah said that its fighters shelled three sites of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), al-Ramtha, al-Samaqa and Metula. The group also announced that it targeted a technical system of the IDF in Metula with a suicide drone and struck surveillance equipment in the sites of Miskaf Aam and Jal al-Deir

The United States is once again stepping up support for Ukraine in its conflict with Russia as well as for the Israeli government’s bloody war on the Palestinian enclave of the Gaza Strip.

On June 13, U.S. President Joe Biden and Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky signed a 10-year security agreement on the sidelines of the G7 summit in southern Italy.

Israel has been added to the United Nations' so-called list of shame, which is included in an annual report on children and armed conflict submitted by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ office which documents rights violations against children in armed conflicts.

Data on the number of children killed and injured in Gaza includes 15,000 killed and over 50,000 acutely malnourished.

The State Department under Antony Blinken on Friday designated an anti-Israel registered political party in Sweden known as Nordic Resistance Movement a "terrorist organization."

The "terrorist" designation is the latest move out of Washington aimed at outright criminalizing criticism of Israel.

Around 50 detained Palestinian men from Gaza were released by Israel on Tuesday, the Turkish Anadolu news agency has reported. The released men showed visible signs of torture, as seen in videos and photos.

Several men appeared exhausted, gaunt and thinner than usual in photographs.

Footage has emerged of Israeli soldiers apparently executing Palestinians in an area of Gaza declared a “safe zone” for civilians by the Israeli military.

Three videos broadcast by Al-Jazeera English on Wednesday showed Palestinian civilians being shot dead by Israeli forces on Al-Rashid Street, the coastal road connecting the north and south of the Gaza Strip.

Israel's far-right Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich has called for the dead bodies of Palestinian prisoners to be "put in carts and dragged through the streets" to serve as a lesson for those planning to "carry out operations against Israeli targets".

Israeli authorities have begun freezing work permits for around 80,000 Palestinians from the occupied West Bank, according to Israeli media.

“The Israeli Civil Administration, which is a unit in the Ministry of Defense, has begun freezing nearly 80,000 work permits for Palestinian workers from the West Bank,” the Israeli public broadcaster is cited as saying on Thursday by the Anadolu news agency.

Since the start of Tel Aviv’s genocidal assault on Gaza on October 7 last year, Israel has prevented workers from the West Bank from accessing the Israeli labor market.
