At least 75 people have been killed in Israel's bombing of central Gaza over the last 24 hours, according to an Al Jazeera correspondent in the Palestinian enclave.

The central refugee camps of al-Bureij and Maghazi were the worst affected, with Israeli forces claiming to be hitting Hamas targets while ground troops operate “in a focused manner with guidance from intelligence” in the al-Bureij area.

Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital, reportedly the only medical facility offering services in central Gaza, is currently “overflowing with wounded people”, many of whom are being treated on the floor, according to a spokesperson from the Gaza health ministry.

Many displaced Palestinians have since fled al-Bureij, which is one of the places hosting Palestinians escaping the southern city of Rafah following Israel’s latest operations there.

Far-right Israelis attacked journalists and Palestinian shop owners on Wednesday, as hundreds marched through occupied East Jerusalem to celebrate Israel's domination of the city.

The annual "flag march", which is part of the Jerusalem Day holiday, commemorates the occupation of the city by Israel in 1967. It passes through Muslim-majority neighbourhoods in East Jerusalem's Old City. 

On Wednesday afternoon, a large number of Israeli settlers began marching in the vicinity of Damascus Gate, the chief entrance to the Old City for Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The settlers confronted Palestinian shop owners, demanding they close their shops ahead of the rally.

The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, along with the Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees, issued criminal referrals for Hunter Biden and James Biden on Wednesday afternoon. Spearheaded by Chairmen James Comer (R-KY), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Jason Smith (R-MO), the referral charges the President’s son and brother with making false statements to Congress, an offense that escalates the scrutiny of the Biden family’s alleged influence peddling activities.

“Our investigation has revealed President Biden knew about, participated in, and benefited from his family cashing in on the Biden name around the world,” said Rep. Comer. “Despite this record of evidence, President Biden continues to lie to the American people about his involvement in these influence peddling schemes. It appears making false statements runs in the Biden family.”

Nuclear war is not something we should be gambling with.  In the event of a full-blown nuclear exchange between the United States and Russia, millions of people would die immediately, and hundreds of millions would die during the nuclear winter and global famines that occur in the aftermath.  So nuclear war should be avoided at all costs.  Unfortunately, both sides just continue to escalate matters in Ukraine, and the Russians keep warning us that if they are pushed too far they will be forced to use nuclear weapons.  But our leaders are not taking such threats seriously.  They seem to believe that they can keep creeping closer and closer to the red lines that the Russians have established because they are convinced that the Russians will never actually risk a nuclear war.  Of course we better hope that our leaders do not miscalculate, because if a nuclear war erupts most Americans are going to end up dead.

Job openings have plummeted sharply today, a steep decline witnessed only three times since 2000, each heralding a severe economic downturn. No wonder yields are dropping—this number is alarmingly bad. We're now at a 26-year low. This isn't just a statistic; it means trucks aren't moving goods and the economy is slowing down noticeably.

Miscreants exploited a zero-day in TikTok to compromised the accounts of CNN and other big names. The app maker has confirmed there was a cyberattack, and that it has scrambled to secure accounts and prevent any further exploitation. We can only imagine the chaos that could be caused by someone commandeering an account with countless followers and using it to spread scams, misinformation, and malware, and even hijacking fans' profiles and their friends in a worm-like fashion.
