  • Seven wounded Syrians: two children, four women and a man waited in pain for darkness to fall to cross into enemy territory. Under the faint moonlight, Israeli military medical corps quickly whisked the patients across the hostile frontier into armoured ambulances headed to hospitals for intensive care. See Metro News coverage.
  • Writing in the Winnipeg Free Press, Sharon Chisvin observes: “In Israel, where the Hebrew people were delivered upon their exodus from slavery, grassroots organizations are even helping Syrian refugees, although their countries are avowed enemies. Other grassroots agencies, such as Buras Finlay’s Right Now, have focused their attention on raising awareness about and showing support to thousands of Eritrean and Sudanese asylum seekers in Israel. After fleeing persecution in their homelands, these asylum seekers have largely been disparaged, ignored and, in some cases, deported by the Israeli government.”
  • Fighting intensifies in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, reports Metro News: “A local Palestinian commander in Lebanon has vowed to crush a small group of extremists in a refugee camp as clashes intensified for a second day and at least one person was killed.”
  • In the Ubyssey, read about “What would happen if the BDS referendum passed?” - “When voting “yes” or “no” to the BDS referendum, students have to choose between two very divisive arguments, with the cases behind both answers diverging pretty heavily on what its effects will be. In this article, we’ll be delving into some of the changes that students can expect to see (or not see) if the question passes in today’s vote.”
