A rampage led by illegal settlers against the village of Duma last month has left a “trail of wreckage,” including approximately $1.3 million in damages, epitomizing the dire situation for Palestinians within all the Israeli occupied territories during the Gaza war.

According to the UN,...

As Ukraine’s War Effort Fails, Kiev Embraces Neo Nazi ‘Bad Guys’ Attacking Russia

As a result of fighting Moscow as a NATO proxy for more than two years, Ukraine’s armed forces have depleted their manpower, air defenses, arms, and ammunition.

In a recent interview with Politico, Denis Kapustin, also known as Denis Nikitin, describes his Russian Volunteer Corps’ (RVC) role in Ukraine’s war with Russia.
