AFPI Israeli soldiers fire a howitzer near the Gaza border
The latest news from Israel, Gaza and Lebanon
Israel is preparing a ground offensive, while the Gaza Strip remains deprived of power, water and fuel. On day 6 of the war we switch again with our reporters Marijn Duintjer Tebbens (from the West Bank) and Zainab Hammoud (Lebanon).
We also pay attention to the Israeli hostages taken to Gaza by Hamas. What is their fate? And what can Israel do to get them back alive? We talk about it with Gerhard Conrad, a German Arabia specialist nicknamed “Mr. Hezbollah’. He received this after a successful prisoner exchange in Lebanon.
And what can Israel do besides negotiating at the diplomatic level? We made a report on commandos specialized in liberation actions.
Does Poland ‘choose’ Europe or Hungary?
Poland goes to the polls on Sunday. According to some, this is the most important election since the fall of communism. The big question is: will the pro-European parties win or will Poland move more towards Hungary?
Poland can go in two directions on Sunday: more pro-European or towards Hungary. The battle is between the nationalist-conservative ruling party PiS and the centre-liberal Civic Coalition. Their supporters are diametrically opposed to each other and mutual hatred is growing.
