Global National: May 25, 2024 | Israel continues Rafah operations despite ICJ ruling


In the Middle East, Israeli forces have reportedly carried out new attacks in the Gaza Strip, resulting in the deaths of more than 30 people. Despite a ruling from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) ordering Israel to cease its military operations in the city of Rafah, Israeli officials have indicated that they will continue with their offensive. This decision follows Israel’s dismissal of arrest warrants issued by the International Criminal Court (ICC) against its political leaders and the leaders of Hamas. Redmond Shannon reports.

Canada is urging G7 nations to provide financial aid to Ukraine by using seized Russian assets. Canadian Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland has been leading efforts to encourage G7 finance ministers to adopt the plan, which was discussed during the recent three-day G7 finance ministers’ meeting in Italy.

David Akin reports.

As the specter of last year’s unprecedented wildfire season looms, Canada faces an early start to wildfires in several regions. Currently, a significant portion of the country, particularly the northwest, is under high to extreme fire danger conditions. The Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre (CIFFC) reports a total of 99 active wildfires nationwide. With summer on the horizon, concerns arise about the potential impact of a changing climate on Canada’s tourism industry. Kyle Benning’s has more on this pressing issue.

Meanwhile, South Asia is facing a prolonged, intense heat wave during the world’s largest election, with officials in India using oral rehydrating salts to combat near-50-degree heat. Much of Pakistan is also facing unbearable conditions. Eric Sorensen reports.

In response to the recent drug poisoning death at the University of Victoria, calls have been made for British Columbia to mandate CPR and naloxone training in high schools across the province. The death of 18-year-old in January has prompted her parents to urge the province to take action, deeming the tragedy preventable. Neetu Garcha reports that British Columbia is considering making CPR training mandatory in high school curriculums, following the example of Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.

  1. Its time to stop this war, ridiculous , its like filling a boat full of holes cash hits the bottom fast. Not sure why the west is war mongering. What about the citizens of Palestine , starving to death ,with no means to support life.

  2. Trudeau has condemned us all. Those who bless Israel are blessed and those who curse Israel are cursed. Whether you agree or not with their actions, God remains sovereign.

  3. Do you guys not see what’s going on? This is a world wide issue right now and it will just get more intense. 2020 started it off, and it will be a 7 year down hill slide right into 2027 and what was foretold long ago, so buckle up.

    Everyone is paying attention to all the little things but are missing the big picture!!

  4. I don't do opiates but I have naloxone, "I have found a dead body once, overdoses and have heard people call out if anyone had any in the past, "I live in Toronto and its available everywhere and so are junkies and not so bright teens…!"…

  5. yeah they want Canada putting more money for military and war and make Canadian life more harder. this is our tax money, not NATO. spend it inside Canada not waste for wars in other countries, US is living on wars, don't follow that

  6. I just wonder during the first 5 months of the war, there was no such pressures in the ICC and ICJ courts. Assault in Gaza will result to the extinction of Hamas and Israel and Netanyahu government faced such almost unbearable pressures.

  7. They're vegetables at their markets look better than mine do it my farmer's market in California who's able to farm the dying on the Vine vegetables for Israel while hamas is still bombing them and Hezbollah still bombing them A 130000 Bombs R PG's etc came from my run and pummeled the sky in Israel just because Israel has a dome of defense doesn't make it any less indeed because Iran was not successful at hitting anyone just because Israeli has a good ally in the United States and they have a good defense system doesn't mean that what they did to dot Gaza is any worse than what Tehran did to Israel and fact far the opposite Israel didn't start the war hamasted back by Tehran get it real people you are so bought out by sorrows and all these liberal left democratic Is hippopracies

  8. "Israel is responsible for maintaining the safety and stability of all countries in the world. The national security of the world and the peoples of the region begins and ends with the State of Israel. Therefore, Israel bears great responsibilities and plays a crucial role in maintaining the security and stability of all countries in the world, including confronting Hamas and Iran, which have formed militias, such as the Islamic Jihad and Hamas, that have become a military arm of the Quds Force. These militias have planned to kidnap innocent Israeli citizens, and Israel cannot free the captives except through military force. Israel cannot deal with Hamas and Iran through political dialogue, as they have achieved some of their goals through military force and cannot be deterred except through counterforce. Therefore, Israel has resorted to waging a strategic, preemptive war against Hamas, Iran, and their militias in order to free its citizens, while ensuring the safety of innocent Palestinian civilians, providing them with shelter and food, and placing them in safe areas to protect themselves. Hamas tries to use them as human shields to launch attacks against the State of Israel."
