In tonight’s top story: Babies in Gaza’s faltering Al-Shifa Hospital have been evacuated to “relative safety” after being left behind in a swift exit by patients and medical staff on Saturday. Though Israel denies forcing the Palestinian people out of Al-Shifa, they were accused of holding personnel at gunpoint, giving them just one hour to leave the institution. The abandoned infants are now being treated, and expected to be transferred onward to Egypt next week. Redmond Shannon has the latest developments.

Though hostilities between the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and Hamas continue in Israel and Gaza, talks between the two sides are reportedly taking place in Qatar — through mediators. As Mike Armstrong reports, Qatari officials, the U.S., and even Egypt, have been involved in the potential peace talks.

In Vancouver, a woman is speaking out after a relative of her husband was taken hostage by Hamas militants. Randi Sommerfield also worked with Israeli-Canadian peace activist Vivian Silver who was killed by Hamas in their brutal Oct. 7 attack in South Israel. As Neetu Garcha reports, Sommerfield is calling for peace, and pause in the middle of so much polarization.

With two ongoing conflicts that have resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands in Gaza and Ukraine, global citizens are beginning to worry about what violent escalation is next on Earth. Heidi Petracek explores a new poll — conducted before Hamas’s deadly attack in Israel— which suggests a large majority of people believe we’re living in more dangerous times.

Over in Rio de Janeiro, a young Brazilian fan of Taylor Swift died at an ‘Eras Tour’ concert on Friday night after falling ill inside the sweltering concert venue. Mike Drolet has the details and expands upon the dangers of immense heat.

And, after years of dedicating herself to years of uniting women of different backgrounds and fostering peace and friendship between them in Israel, Arab activist Amna Kanana says she’s caught in the middle of an impossible plight amid the conflict raging in Gaza. Crystal Goomansingh reports.

  1. its sick how people see this kind of stuff and say "i support this". there are literal BABIES being killed because of these monsters. im happy majority of them were rescued though.

  2. I am sick and tired of Israeli lies and the western governments promoting those lies. Look at the lie about Al-Shifa Hospital. The IDF guys are going around in the basement areas trying to prove Hamas was operating from that basement area. I wish someone should ask them "okay so we believe you, Hamas was operating from that area that seems unaffected by the bombing of the Al-Shifa Hospital now tell us what you did achieve by bombing the hospital"? The area you show they were operating from definitely did not get destroyed. You only ended up killing hospital staff the patients and newborn babies. Does that bother you least bit IDF?!!

  3. A part of Israel's big propaganda campaign. They showed that they were carrying incubators to the hospital to save babies. They obiously forgot that they cut power to the hospital. Incubator will not work without power. What a joke!

  4. Dealing with Israel is so difficult. It is like being in a relationship with a narcissist psychopath; he fu cks you up and then makes you think it's your fault"

    Bassem Yousef

  5. The biggest tragedy is that Palestinian and Israeli little children are taught to fear and hate each other since their tender years, a wedge is drawn between them to ensure they can kill one another later on!! And worse, pain, fear, and death mark their innocent souls probably for the rest of their lives!!

  6. Surprised you have not added the news of World Cup Cricket Final match played on Sunday between India and Australia in Ahmedabad India. It was the biggest event of one of the most popular game also played in Canada at international level.

    For the record, Canada has participated in the World Cup Cricket tournament four times (1997, 2003, 2007 and 2011) and now have also secured a place among 20 countries in the T20 format Cricket World Cup 2024.

    This is a testament to the growth and development of cricket in Canada and that need support and reasonable media coverage for the promotion of the game.
