In a series of tweets and statements, a developing story in the Middle East reveals that a hospital in Gaza was hit by a rocket. Conflicting claims and accusations have been made regarding who is responsible for this tragic event. Here’s a breakdown of what we know so far:

1. Israeli Defense Force (IDF): In their initial tweet, the IDF reported that a barrage of rockets was launched toward Israel. One of these rockets passed near a hospital and struck it. The IDF pointed the finger at the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization Hamas as the responsible party.

2. Ambassador Michael Herzog: Ambassador Herzog reiterated the IDF’s claims, asserting that intelligence from multiple sources supports the assertion that Islamic Jihad is behind the rocket launch. He also emphasized that Islamic Jihad poses a threat to both Israelis and Palestinians.

3. i24NEWS English: i24NEWS English reported that the explosion at the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza was the result of a failed rocket launch by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. This information was gleaned from the IDF’s analysis of the rocket barrage that occurred at the time of the explosion.

4. Fox News Journalist Trey Yingst: Journalist Trey Yingst cautioned that the region is on the brink of a potentially larger conflict. He highlighted the need for critical analysis of every piece of information. He mentioned that Hamas officials attribute the hospital explosion to an Israeli strike, while the Israeli authorities claim they are investigating the incident.

The situation is fraught with tension, as different parties offer conflicting narratives about the incident. While the IDF, Ambassador Herzog, and i24NEWS English point to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, Hamas, as responsible, there are competing claims from other sources, including Hamas officials.

It’s crucial to note that this incident underscores the volatile nature of the region and the potential for further escalation. We will be closely monitoring developments and awaiting the results of investigations to determine the true cause of the hospital explosion.

Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year

The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.

According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.

ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.

Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries. 

Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.

Surprisingly, ADN reports:

A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.

Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
