Three sons and 'several' grandchildren of Hamas' top leader, Ismail Haniyeh, have been killed in an Israeli airstrike in the Gaza Strip, relatives and official Hamas media said today.

Reports state that Hazem, Ameer, and Mohammed Haniyeh were killed alongside family members in a fatal strike near the Shati refugee camp in Gaza City.The Hamas political chief confirmed the deaths to Al Jazeera.

'I am grateful to God for the honor he has given me in the deaths of three of my children and a few of my grandchildren,' Haniyeh said, from Qatar.

'My sons were awarded this honor. They remained with our Palestinian people in Gaza, did not leave and did not run,' he added.

The promised Iranian retaliation for the Israeli attack on Tehran's consulate in Damascus is likely in the next 24-48 hours, anonymous US officials told Bloomberg on Wednesday.

Two generals of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force were killed in the Israeli airstrike on April 1, which for the first time targeted an internationally protected diplomatic mission.

There has been a widespread expectation that Iran would refrain from reprisal until the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Speaking on Wednesday, as Muslims celebrated the feast of Eid-al-Fitr, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Israel "must and shall be punished" for what it did.

"Major missile or drone strikes" are now imminent, Bloomberg reported citing "people familiar with" the Israeli, US and allied intelligence reports. They will likely be carried out by either Iran directly, or its allies such as the Lebanon-based Hezbollah, the anonymous sources said.

The US is helping Israel with planning and sharing intelligence assessments, the sources said. West Jerusalem is reportedly waiting for the Iranian attack before it launches a ground offensive against the city of Rafah, in Gaza.

Meet Centuria, Ukraine's Western-trained neo-Nazi army

© Unknown
A uniquely Ukrainian strain of Neo-Nazism is spreading throughout Europe, which openly advocates violence against minorities while seeking new recruits. With Kiev's army collapsing and a narrative of Western betrayal gaining currency, the horror inflicted on residents of Donbas for a decade could very soon be coming to a city near you.

Centuria, an ultra-violent Ukrainian Neo-Nazi faction, has cemented itself in six cities across Germany, and is seeking to expand its local presence. According to Junge Welt, a Berlin-based Marxist daily, the Nazi organization's growth has been "unhindered by local security services."

Junge Welt traces Centuria's origins to an August 2020 Neo-Nazi summit "at the edge of a forest near Kiev." There, an ultranationalist named Igor "Tcherkas" Mikhailenko demanded the "hundreds of mostly masked vigilante fighters present," who were members Kiev's fascistic National Militia, "make sacrifices for the idea of 'Greater Ukraine.'" As the former head of the Neo-Nazi Patriot of Ukraine's Kharkiv division, and commander of the state sponsored Azov Battalion from 2014 to 2015, Mikhailenko has professed a desire to "destroy everything anti-Ukrainian."


Pentagon's Ukraine contract for Musk's Starlink expires - Bloomberg

It's unclear whether the deal for the satellite network that was "the communication backbone of Ukraine" will be extended, the outlet wrote...

The Pentagon contract to deploy Elon Musk's Starlink terminals in Ukraine will expire next month, Bloomberg has reported, citing an unnamed US official. The service plays a vital role in Washington's security assistance to Kiev, the report adds.

The source also revealed that the contract, which went into force in June of last year and lasts through May, is worth $23 million, Bloomberg wrote. The US Department of Defense has so far refused to officially disclose the size of the contract. The amount has been described by the publication as "miniscule" compared to the "hundreds of millions of dollars" Musk's SpaceX received from the US for launching some of its national security satellites.

Musk has repeatedly voiced unease about the use of Starlink in Ukraine. The satellite network has been providing communications to the country's military and the government.

Zelensky's Crimea Bridge threat proof of Kiev's terrorist intent - Kremlin

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky's threat to destroy Russian civilian infrastructure demonstrates that his government is using terrorist tactics, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

Earlier this week, Zelensky said he and his government "really want to destroy Russian infrastructure," including the Crimean Bridge. Ukrainian special services have conducted two major bomb attacks on the strategic link over the Kerch Strait, killing several civilians in both cases.

"The Kiev regime is openly stating its aggressive terrorist plans regarding Russian infrastructure," Peskov said, soon after German media conglomerate Axel Springer released a video of its interview with Zelensky, recorded on Tuesday.

The Ukrainian leader's words "prove to us once again absolute correctness and proportionality of the decisions that [Russian President Vadlimir Putin] made regarding the start of the special military operation," Peskov added.

Kiev claims that its attacks on the Crimean Bridge and other infrastructure targets are justified by their military value. Its agents are also engaged in targeted assassinations of supposed enemies of the state, in which they routinely use explosives.

The US dangles Yemen bait, but Ansarallah refuses to bite

The US has secretly offered a stunning array of concessions to Ansarallah to halt its naval operations in support of Gaza - to no avail.
We favor a diplomatic solution. We know that there is no military solution.
โ€” US Special Envoy for Yemen Timothy Lenderking
In a special briefing on 3 April - nearly six months after Yemen launched its far-reaching naval operations to debilitate Israel's ability to conduct war on Gaza - US Special Envoy for Yemen Timothy Lenderking touted the importance of seeking diplomatic solutions in Yemen instead of the military ones his government has been loudly advocating for months.

Lenderking's stance contrasted sharply with Washington's announcement in December of a multinational coalition against Yemen's Ansarallah-led forces, aimed at safeguarding international shipping in the Red Sea and effectively protecting Israeli-linked trade from Yemen's sweeping naval blockade.


Two-thirds of colleges mandate DEI courses for graduation, report finds

A new report released Thursday by the group Speech First finds that nearly two-thirds of colleges and universities reviewed have requirements for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) courses to satisfy graduation requirements.

The report, titled "No Graduation Without Indoctrination: The DEI Course Mandate," investigated 248 colleges from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and found that 67% of the institutions reviewed mandate DEI courses to satisfy general education requirements. Of the 165 institutions identified that enforce DEI requirements, 59% were taxpayer-funded public institutions and 41% were private institutions.

Speech First Executive Director Cherise Trump โ€” no relation to the former president โ€” spoke with FOX Business' Lydia Hu about the report and said that the idea to look into DEI graduation requirements came about through conversations with college students.

"We had heard about some of the trainings through freshman orientations and some of the online modules," she explained. "But we had not heard that you have to take full semester-long courses in order to graduate, so we wanted to look more into this and that's when we started digging."

Russian missiles and drones destroyed a large electricity plant near Kyiv and hit power facilities in several regions on Thursday, officials said, ramping up pressure on the embattled energy system as Ukraine runs low on air defences.

The major attack more than two years since Russia's full-scale invasion completely destroyed the Trypilska coal-powered thermal power plant near the capital, a senior official at the company that runs the facility told Reuters.

Unconfirmed footage shared on social media showed a fire raging at the large Soviet-era facility and black smoke belching out of it.

"We need air defence and other defence support, not eye-closing and long discussions," President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said on the Telegram messaging app, condemning the attacks as "terror".

Comment: Whilst Russia indeed has a strategy that it is adhering to, and modifying, it seems in line with its intent to protect civilians that it postponed seriously cutting off power generation until after the harshest point of the winter season.

In the following interview Scott Ritter details how he thinks Russia is intent of demilitarising the whole of Ukraine and how Ukraine will be tied to Russia and Belarus by way of a political and economic union:


Star wars coming - top US general

Russia and China are rapidly building orbital capabilities, the Space Command head has said.

The possibility of a conflict in space is no longer just theoretical, General Stephen Whiting, head of the US Space Command, said on Tuesday.

Speaking at the 39th Space Symposium at the command's headquarters in Colorado Springs, Whiting painted an alarming picture of Russian and Chinese orbital capabilities.

Comment: From this document from Reaching Critical Will (a project of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom):
The overwhelming majority of UN member states are concerned that the weaponization of outer space will lead to an arms race and insist that a multilateral treaty is the only way to prevent such an arms race, emphasizing that this treaty would not limit space access, but would prevent such limitations. Each year in the UN General Assembly a resolution on the prevention of an arms race in outer space (PAROS) is introduced and adopted by an overwhelming majority of UN member states. In fact, every country in the world votes in favor of negotiating a treaty on PAROS โ€” except for the US and Israel, which abstain.
