"An unconstitutional act is not law.  It confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office.  It is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed." -- Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425 (1886)

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.

American policy in the Middle East has entered the entropy stage. You cannot fault U.S. President Joe Biden or Secretary of State Antony Blinken for genuinely and honestly trying their best – but you cannot sugarcoat the results.

Israel is at the height of a developing crisis that is far from being over. It's the most serious and dangerous crisis in the country's history. It began on October 7 with the worst failure in Israel's history. And it continued with a war that, despite the courage and sacrifice of soldiers and officers, appears to be the least successful war in its history, due to the strategic paralysis in the country's leadership.
