Israel launches second air strike in December against Syrian port of Latakia | AFP News |

"At around 3:21 am [0121 GMT], the Israeli enemy carried out an aerial aggression with several missiles from the direction of the Mediterranean ... targeting the container yard in Latakia port," the Syrian state news agency, Sana, cited a military source as saying. The strike caused "significant material damage", it added.

Asked about the strike, an Israeli army spokesperson said: "We don't comment on reports in foreign media."

While Israel rarely comments on individual strikes it carries out on its northern neighbour, it has acknowledged mounting hundreds since 2011. According to a report by the Israeli army, it hit about 50 targets in Syria in 2020.

In the deadliest operation since the strikes began, Israel killed 57 government troops and allied fighters in eastern Syria in January this year.

The Israeli military has defended the strikes as a necessary measure to prevent its arch-foe Iran from gaining a foothold on its doorstep.

Israel's head of military intelligence, Maj Gen Aharon Haliva, has accused Iran of "continuing to promote subversion and terror" in the Middle East.

Emma Watson pro-Palestinian post sparks antisemitism row | The Guardian |

Emma Watson, 31, is an outspoken feminist who has used her platform to support a number of high-profile causes, earning her a spot on Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2015.

In 2014 she was appointed as a UN women's goodwill ambassador and delivered an address at the UN headquarters in New York to launch HeForShe, a campaign that urges men to advocate for women's equality. A year later Malala Yousafzai told Watson she had decided to call herself a feminist after hearing her speech.

Watson was appointed to a G7 advisory body for women's rights in 2019, consulting with leaders on foreign policy.

Of course Danny Danon personifies all that is evil in Israel, the occupation, torture and inhumane treatment of Palestinians.
