You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning.

GETTY

The home secretary has told pro-Palestinian demonstrators to stop their regular Gaza protests because they have “made their point” and are putting a “huge pressure” on policing.

The Biden administration came under fire from lawmakers on Tuesday over the lack of congressional approval to conduct military strikes against Yemen’s Houthis and defend foreign ships in the Red Sea.

“There is no existing law that would permit military action against the Houthis,” Democratic Senator Chris Murphy said at Tuesday’s Senate hearing in Washington DC. 

“For the military campaign to continue, I believe that a tailored, time-bound congressional authorisation isn’t just nice to have. It is required,” he said.

GAZA CITY, Palestine

Two babies died of malnutrition in the northern Gaza Strip amid an Israeli blockade, the Health Ministry in the enclave said Tuesday.

The infants lost their lives at Kamal Adwan Hospital in the city of Beit Lahia, the ministry added in a statement.

“Dehydration and malnutrition threaten the lives of thousands of children and pregnant women in the Gaza Strip,” the ministry warned.

Undersea data cables in the Red Sea have reportedly been damaged, months after Yemeni Houthi rebels threatened to do so.

At least 15 submarine cables pass through the Bab al-Mandab Strait at the southern end of the Red Sea, a body of water just 26km wide at some points. Yemen is the Strait’s northern shore.
