Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has scheduled a vote for Wednesday to advance President Biden’s massive $106 billion emergency spending request that includes military aid for Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan, as well as additional funding for the border, POLITICO reported.

Israel intensified airstrikes in southern Gaza on Monday and bombed areas where it told Palestinians to seek shelter, Reuters reported.

Israel ordered the evacuation of parts of the main southern city of Khan Younis, but residents said areas where they were told to flee were still coming under attack. The Israeli military posted a map on X with arrows pointing from Khan Younis, telling people to head toward the Mediterranean Sea and the town of Rafah, near the Egyptian border.

The IDF is planning to pump seawater into the Hamas tunnel network in Gaza, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

Five large pumps have been assembled north of the al-Shati refugee camp during the last month, with each one capable of pumping thousands of cubic meters of seawater into the tunnels.

Israel informed US officials that they were considering this option last month and needed to weigh feasibility and environmental factors against military necessity.

As the 2024 presidential election looms, President Joe Biden finds himself in a precarious position.

Recent polls indicate a significant dip in his approval ratings, with the leading Republican candidate, former President Donald Trump, outperforming him in direct comparisons.
