Israel News: ++ Hezbollah fires missiles at Israel ++

DrAn Israeli military spokesman described the military structure of the Islamic Hamas movement in the northern Gaza Strip as disjointed. Hamas spokesman Daniel Hagari said on Saturday that before the war began three months ago, Hamas had two brigades of 12 regiments in the northern coastal sector. “In total there were about 14,000 terrorists,” Hajjari said. Since then, many leaders have been killed and weapons and ammunition destroyed. The soldiers found underground tunnels and demolished them.

Hajari said that in the Jabalia refugee area in the northern part of the Gaza Strip alone, eight kilometers of underground tunnels and 40 entrances were found. Hamas no longer operates in an organized manner in this area. “There are still terrorists in Jabalia, but now they are acting without a framework and without leaders.” But he expects sporadic missile attacks on Israel from this region to continue.

The army is now focusing on destroying Hamas buildings in the central and southern Gaza Strip. Hagari stressed that this will take time and the fighting will continue throughout the year.

British maritime security company Ambrey said it had received a report of an incident in the Red Sea. Ambre says this happened in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, but he did not give any details.

On the same day, the head of the United Nations Emergency Relief Office, Martin Griffiths, described the situation in Gaza as increasingly tragic. He added: „Gaza has become a place of death and despair.” “The past 12 weeks have been traumatic, especially for children,” the UN emergency aid coordinator said. “No food. No water. No school. Nothing but the terrible sounds of war, day after day.” Griffiths explained that the Gaza Strip has simply become “uninhabitable.”

Sell ​​or ban: USA gives TikTok an ultimatum



Sell ​​or ban: USA gives TikTok an ultimatum

As of: April 24, 2024 at 5:28 AM

Short video app TikTok has to separate from its Chinese parent company Bytedance in the USA. The Senate also decided on this matter. The company now has one year – otherwise there is a risk of being banned.

The Senate also approved the US law aimed at forcing a change in ownership of the short video app TikTok. This means that it is now on the table of President Joe Biden, who previously announced that he would sign it.

China-based Bytedance Group will have a maximum of one year to separate from TikTok. Otherwise, the app should be banned from US app stores. It is unclear whether the plan can hold up in US courts. A previous threat to ban it there failed.

Accusation of influence peddling

The Senate approved the bill overnight by a large majority of 79 votes to 18. Bytedance is seen across all parties in the US as a Chinese company that should bend to the will of the Chinese Communist Party. That's why there are warnings that Chinese authorities may gain widespread access to data from American users – as well as use the platform for political influence. TikTok has denied this for years.

“For years, we allowed the Chinese Communist Party to control one of the most popular apps in America, and that was dangerously short-sighted,” said Senator Marco Rubio, the top Republican on the Intelligence Committee. “A new law will force the Chinese owner to sell the app. This is a good thing for America.”

This law, which was passed for the second time in the House of Representatives a few days ago, this time forms part of a package aimed, among other things, at enabling new aid to Ukraine, which is under attack from Russia. That's why it passed through the Senate so quickly on the second try.

TikTok: Not a subsidiary of a Chinese company

The law puts Biden's Democrats in a dilemma: on the one hand, the president wants to take a tough stance on China, and on the other hand, the app is popular among young users, whose votes he needs to be re-elected in November. The Biden campaign team only opened a TikTok account this year.

TikTok confirms that it does not see itself as a subsidiary of a Chinese company. Bytedance is 60% owned by Western investors. The company's headquarters are located in the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean. However, American politicians counter that the Chinese founders, with a 20% stake, have maintained control thanks to higher voting rights and that Bytedance's headquarters are in Beijing, where they cannot escape the influence of the authorities.

TikTok has not yet commented directly after the vote. The company had already announced over the weekend that it wanted to take legal action against the law.

US courts blocked a similar ban attempt

TikTok claims to have 170 million users in the USA. During his US presidency, Donald Trump attempted to force the sale of TikTok's US business to US investors with threats of bans.

But the plan failed primarily because US courts suspected that plans to ban TikTok violated the freedom of expression enshrined in the US Constitution. An existing law in Montana that was supposed to ban TikTok from app stores there has also been suspended. Trump has now backed away from calls for a ban.
