West Bank glows with anger over Gaza destruction

RAMALLAH West Bank (Reuters) - While the Gaza Strip burns, the occupied West Bank is smoldering, with violent clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces raising the spectre of a new popular uprising after years of relative calm. In just a three-day period late last week, 10 Palestinians died and some 600 wounded during a spate of angry protests against the prolonged military offensive in nearby Gaza. On Sunday, Israeli police said they foiled a potentially deadly attack when they stopped a car laden with explosives as its driver tried to reach Israel via a West Bank checkpoint, while riots broke out once more overnight in East Jerusalem #France #Middle East #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #Latin America #Mexico #opinion

Russia should lose right to stage 2018 World Cup - Clegg

More fighting breaks out in Gaza after rockets hit Israel

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - A humanitarian truce in the Gaza Strip collapsed on Sunday after a barrage of rockets fired by Palestinian militants was met with fierce Israeli shelling, in a fresh setback to efforts to secure a permanent ceasefire. Israeli tanks and artillery army pounded targets along the coastal enclave, sending thick plumes of black smoke rising into the sky, signalling an end its unilateral, 24-hour truce in the wake of the missile salvoes. Palestinian witnesses reported heavy shelling east of Gaza City, with ambulances immediately racing towards the area #United States #Business #France #Middle East #Israel #markets #Italy #Argentina #Mexico
