Wednesday saw intense ground battle between Israeli forces and Hamas terrorists in Gaza as the Israelis broke through the damaged Palestinian enclave and arrived in the center of the southern city of Khan Younis.

Moreover, in one of the most intense battles in the two months since the start of the Hamas-Israel conflict, Israeli jets barraged targets.

Palestinian medical professionals said that supplies were running low and that hospitals were bursting at the seams with civilian casualties, many of them women and children. There were fewer and fewer secure places for the hundreds of thousands of individuals who had been uprooted from their homes.

To destroy Hamas, Israeli forces and tanks have mostly taken control of the northern portion of the Gaza Strip and have now advanced to the southern portion. When a truce broke last week, they unleashed a wave of violence that surrounded Khan Younis.

Israel said on Wednesday that its forces were engaged in intense combat and that they had hit hundreds of targets within the enclave, including a terrorist cell close to a northern school.

Al-Qassam Brigades, the military branch of Hamas, also said that its militants were involved in combat with Israeli soldiers.

On Tuesday, 24 military vehicles were damaged and eight Israeli troops were reported killed or injured by Hamas. Israel said that since the ground assault started five weeks ago, 84 of its troops had died.

Medecins Sans Frontieres said that hundreds of patients at the Al-Aqsa Hospital in central Gaza require emergency care due to severely low levels of fuel and medical supplies.


Since December 1, 150 to 200 war-wounded patients on average have been admitted to the hospital every day, according to Marie-Aure Perreault Revial, the emergency coordinator for MSF.

"There are 700 patients admitted in the hospital now, with new patients arriving all the time," she stated.

Israel has been publishing an internet map to inform Gazans of where areas of the enclave should flee to prevent assaults ever since the truce broke down. On Monday, the eastern part of Khan Younis was demarcated, and many of its inhabitants fled on foot.

However, Gazans claim that there is nowhere safe to go because Israel is still bombing the places where it is ordering Palestinians to go, and the few remaining communities and shelters are already overrun.

Israel investigates Lebanon strike

In an apparent reference to Israeli shelling that left a Lebanese soldier dead and three others wounded the day before, the Israeli army stated on Wednesday that it was investigating a strike that injured Lebanese forces in south Lebanon.

"The strike did not target the Lebanese Armed Forces. The event has been regretted by the IDF. The Israeli military released a statement saying, "The incident is under review."


Since the beginning of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian organization Hamas on October 7, Israel and the highly armed Lebanese militia Hezbollah have been exchanging gunfire across the Lebanese-Israeli border.

The soldier, a sergeant, was killed on Tuesday when Israel shelled an army post in Lebanon, according to the army.

From a "known launch area and observation point" used by Hezbollah, the Israeli army said that its forces had engaged in "self-defense to eliminate an imminent threat that had been identified from Lebanon".

According to the British Council, more than 1600 Nigerian doctors moved to the UK in the past year. The General Medical Council (GMC) of the United Kingdom has made a stunning discovery in its "Workforce Report 2023": 1,616 doctors with training from Nigeria have joined the UK medical workforce in 2022 alone, marking a large migration of medical professionals from that country. This rise has positioned Nigeria as the third highest provider of non-UK graduate physicians, overtaken only by India and Pakistan, which provided 2,402 and 2,372 doctors, respectively.


Additionally, the data shows that Nigeria's doctor migration rate is steadily increasing, and Nigeria is about to surpass Pakistan to become the nation with the second-highest concentration of foreign-trained physicians in the UK. The research highlights the growing significance of international medical graduates (IMGs), particularly those from Nigeria, in the UK healthcare system. These individuals make up over half of newly hired physicians and 63% of the 23,838 new entries to the medical register.


 The Changing Medical Workforce in the United Kingdom But in Nigeria, this tendency has raised concerns. The Nigerian Medical Association is concerned that future medical immigration may be necessary due to the high incidence of medical brain drain. Nigeria's health industry is now dealing with a serious workforce shortage. Due to the migration of physicians and other health workers abroad, hospitals all across the nation are dealing with a decline in outpatients and surgical volume. This has put a strain on the remaining healthcare professionals, resulting in overwork, tiredness, and burnout.


The GMC study also draws attention to a notable change from 2014, when only 181 Nigerian physicians were employed in the UK. According to the data, the fastest-growing category of new hires since 2015 has been non-British nationality doctors who obtained their primary medical qualifications (PMQs) in their native country. These doctors currently make up 48% of the new hires. On the other hand, the percentage of British nationals who are PMQ has decreased, falling from 53% in 2015 to 30% in 2022.

On Tuesday, Arsenal defeated Luton 4-3 thanks to another goal from Kai Havertz. In the sixtyth minute, the 24-year-old was used in center midfield at Kenilworth Road and dashed into the area to finish off a deft cross from Gabriel Jesus. Despite playing left back for his nation, Havertz has already netted four goals in his previous six appearances for Arsenal and Germany.


Havertz was acquired by Arsenal from Chelsea in June. According to Sky Sports, the Gunners had to pay a transfer price of £65 million for him. Three years prior, Chelsea signed a player who had scored 38 goals in his last two seasons in Germany for a staggering £75 million from Bayer Leverkusen. Havertz is renowned for scoring the game-winning goal for Chelsea.


Even yet, a sizable portion of Blues fans still thought he was a bust when he left Stamford Bridge with just 19 goals in 91 Premier League outings.


Havertz was the only player with five shots on Tuesday, even though he was playing in the middle of the field. In addition, he made four crucial passes. Havertz made two tackles and prevailed in six aerial contests against Luton in terms of physicality.

Havertz became the face of Chelsea's frequently brash assault when he lost his way at Stamford Bridge. However, he has been given the freedom to reinvent himself under Mikel Arteta. Havertz received a lot of flak at Chelsea for his shoddy first touch in and around the area.


Although hold-up play and precision finishing were never his strong points, the criticism was frequently warranted. Havertz's final three goals for Arsenal include two goals that perfectly exemplify his attacking strengths. That involves timing his runs to take advantage of space generated by a no. 9 and completing on autopilot before he has a chance to second-guess himself.

It's possible that Chelsea gave Arsenal a bad striker. However, the Gunners acquired a superb goal-scoring midfield player.

The $25 billion Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline (NMGP) is scheduled to start in 2024, according to Ekperikpe Ekpo, Nigeria's minister of energy. On November 27, Ekpo disclosed the building timeline that was scheduled to take place. This came after a Moroccan team headed by Ambassador Moha Ou Ali Tagm visited Abuja.

Construction on the $25 billion Nigeria-Morocco Gas Pipeline (NMGP) is scheduled to start in 2024, according to Ekperikpe Ekpo, Nigeria's minister of energy. On November 27, Ekpo disclosed the building timeline that was scheduled to take place. This came after a Moroccan team headed by Ambassador Moha Ou Ali Tagm visited Abuja. The pipeline is expected to be the second-longest pipeline in the world, after the West-East Gas Pipeline in China, and will cover 5,600 kilometers while passing through 13 African nations and providing service to about 500 million people.


Gas from Nigeria is to be transported to West African countries via the NMGP, with the possibility of expansion into Europe. Nigeria could be able to sell gas to Europe and make a sizable profit in addition to supplying gas to the African continent. Phases of the construction would be completed in three years for the first stage and five years for the other stages. The pipeline is slated to start in Brass Island in Nigeria and go up into northern Morocco, where it may eventually join the Maghreb European Pipeline, which already runs from Algeria to Spain.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Ltd (NNPCL) asserts that the pipeline will increase regional economic integration, create jobs, raise living standards, and drastically cut carbon emissions.


For the gas pipeline project, Morocco and Nigeria signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on September 15 of last year. However, the pipeline agreement was first proposed in 2016 by Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari and Morocco's King Mohammed VI. Nigerian and Moroccan officials signed a funding agreement for a feasibility study in December 2021, following the project's approval by the Islamic Development Bank (IDB).

Zion Carr, who was just eight years old when he witnessed his aunt's horrifying killing by a police officer who was ultimately found guilty of her manslaughter, has received compensation. This is a picture of Zion Carr giving a court testimony. Millions in damages have been granted to Zion Carr. A Texas city has awarded millions of dollars in damages to a youngster who witnessed his aunt being shot dead by a police officer in her house.


When Zion Carr, the youngster, was just eight years old, the event took place in Fort Worth four years ago. On October 12, 2019, Atatiana Jefferson, a 28-year-old Black woman, was shot by white officer Aaron Dean after a neighbor reported that Jefferson's front door was open to the public. During the trial, it was revealed that Zion and Jefferson had been up late playing video games and had left the doors open to let out smoke after the child burned hamburgers. The £2.8 million ($3.5 million) settlement for Zion was authorized by the Fort Worth City Council. Zion testified during Dean's trial in December of last year when he was found guilty of manslaughter in Jefferson's murder and given a nearly 12-year jail sentence.


A savings plan will be initiated to assist in paying for Zion's college education, and a portion of the funds will be used to support his current requirements and living expenses. Here is a picture of Attiana Jefferson. Officer Atatiana Jefferson shot her in her own house. Dean and police Carol Darch stated in court that they suspected the house could have been broken into and discreetly walked inside the rear fence to search for evidence of a break-in. The 39-year-old Dean, whose revolver was drawn, yelled for Jefferson, who was inside, to reveal her hands before firing a single shot through the glass.

According to body camera footage, neither Dean nor the other responding officer identified themselves as police when they arrived at the residence. In his testimony, Dean stated that he was left with no option when he witnessed Jefferson aiming a revolver right at him. However, when questioned by the prosecution, he admitted to making a number of mistakes and that the things he did both before and after the shooting were just "more bad police work". The video shows that Dean discharged his firearm right away after giving Jefferson the order to raise her hands, but prosecutor Dale Smith claimed that Dean did not give Jefferson enough time to obey.


Despite having his back to the window when Dean fired, Darch never reported seeing a gun before pulling the trigger, according to her testimony, and he remained silent about the weapon as they hurried inside to investigate the house. Dean admitted on the testimony stand that he never administered first aid to Jefferson and that he only mentioned the gun after noticing it on the interior of the house, despite the prosecution's claims that the evidence demonstrated otherwise. According to Zion's testimony, Jefferson pulled out her revolver thinking there was someone breaking into the backyard.


The trial's central contention was that, according to defense lawyer Bob Gill, Dean acted in self-defense, making the case more about manslaughter than murder. After more than 13 hours of deliberation over the course of two days, the jury found Dean guilty of manslaughter rather than murder. Amber Carr, Zion's mother, had congestive heart disease until passing away in January 2023.

With nowhere else to escape, Erik Talavera was surrounded by cops and brandishing a knife. He can be seen stooping down and almost touching the ground on body-camera footage as two San Diego County sheriff's deputies open fire on him, hitting him 16 times. Later, deputies would claim that on February 16, 2022, when they shot 33-year-old Talavera from approximately 40 feet away, they thought the victim, Talavera, was clutching a tiny pistol.



Talavera's attorneys claim that the deputies were responsible for the nearly fatal mess that resulted from the entire El Cajon incident. They claim that the deputies shouted contradicting commands at Talavera, were unable to communicate with other officers at the scene, and fired more than a dozen shots while other officers were performing their duties. Man who survived after 16 shots against San Diego County sheriff's deputies After he stole a trailer, Erik Talavera was shot 16 times by police and filed a lawsuit against the San Diego County Sheriff's Department. His attorneys say he had a knife but was not a threat to deputies who were about 40 feet away. On Monday, Talavera’s attorneys filed a federal lawsuit against San Diego County and its Sheriff's Department, claiming that carelessness, excessive force, and assault and battery were the causes of the shooting.


Despite carrying a knife, Talavera did not constitute a threat when the cops opened fire, according to the attorneys. The complaint states that "Mr. Talavera did nothing to provoke the use of deadly force at any time." "Mr. Talavera did not pose a threat to any law enforcement official, nor could a reasonable deputy interpret Mr. Talavera's actions as putting anyone in danger or making a threat of violence." On September 22, 2022, the San Diego County district attorney's office found that Talavera had grabbed a tiny revolver from his waistline and that Deputies David Lovejoy and Jonathan Young, who had shot him, were not criminally responsible for the shooting.

 Erik Talavera 12

The district attorney's conclusions state that Lovejoy shot ten bullets at Talavera at first, and Young fired five. Even after being shot, Lovejoy fired two more shots as Talavera lunged for the knife and drew it to his chest. Talavera's complaint, which requests undisclosed damages, claims he was struck sixteen times in all. Talavera is gradually regaining her ability to walk after spending months in the hospital for rehabilitation. He revealed at a press conference on Tuesday that he now depends on his fiancée, friends, and neighbors for everyday assistance. "My waist is not flexible. I'm still practicing my gait. I'm unable to tie my shoes, consume regular food, or even take regular showers," he said. "However, I managed to survive."


The lawsuit claims that on February 16, 2022, Talavera reportedly stole a "bait trailer" that the Regional Auto Theft Task Force, or RATT, had put up to entice and apprehend suspected thieves. As a result, police allegedly started following Talavera. The task force was not immediately radio-connected to San Diego County deputies who were reacting to the heist. Rather, the suit claims, deputies passed radio talk from the task force to themselves via smartphones over a radio channel. According to the lawsuit, this caused information to be delayed in reaching the deputies, preventing them from speaking with task force members directly.
