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.

The Washington Post on Monday ran a vile hit piece smearing US Airman Aaron Bushnell for self-immolating outside the Israeli embassy in DC in protest of Israel's genocide of Palestinians in Gaza.

In an article titled, "Airman who set self on fire grew up on religious compound, had anarchist past," The Post sought to portray Bushnell as a victim of Christian religious extremism with "white privilege" who was angry not with Israel's US-backed genocide campaign but instead was frustrated "that critics of the war blame U.S. military support for Israeli military actions."

When the slaughter stops in Gaza
I will get to those cobwebs, promise,
and water that monstera,
and clean out that goo in the fridge.

When the slaughter stops in Gaza
I will youtube how to grow strawberries,
and whether dinosaurs ever had feathers,
and what’s the deal with hibachis — 
is it something to do with fondue?

Israel on Monday unleashed a wave of airstrikes on a location in eastern Lebanon which had yet to be targeted in the war. Several attacks were conducted on the outskirts of Baalbek in the Bekaa Valley. This area hasn't been struck by Israeli fire since the 2006 war.

Women in Gaza find themselves on the frontline in a battle for survival. Devoid of shelter, safety, food, water and sanitation, they bear the brunt of a genocidal war.

Around 70 percent of all the people that Israel has killed in Gaza are women and children.

Around 1 million women and girls are displaced. For months, they have been living in a tent or in schools.

Every woman in Gaza is weary and at constant risk.

The countdown has begun for Rafah. Israel repeated on Sunday its threats of carrying out a major ground attack against the southern Gaza city before the start of Ramadan: the holy month in Islam, during which Muslims fast, is expected to begin around March 10.
