The developments in Syria within the last few days have rapidly driven our country to the brink of war. And inevitably, our soldiers have begun to lose their lives.

As the jihadist gangs, which have been located in the Syrian province of Idlib, have increased their activities, the Syrian army advanced in this province.

When, amidst his characteristic bombast, US President Donald Trump festively revealed his “Deal of the Century” last week in Washington, he repeated the terms “peace plan” and “Palestinian state” several times. In response, Peace Now has written, “Despite the seemingly appropriate words and the celebratory atmosphere, an examination of the details of the plan, clearly reveal the degree to which...

Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) appear to be on the brink of a trade war, with the far-right government’s Defense Minister, Naftali Bennett, announcing on Friday, January 31, that Israel would be stopping all agricultural imports from the occupied West Bank starting Sunday, February 2.

What triggered this discord was an October decision by the Palestinians to boycott cattle...

Senior members of the Joint List maintain that, given Blue & White’s support for US President Trump’s “Deal of the Century,” chances are slim that the alliance will recommend that Israel’s president grant MK Benny Gantz, B&W’s leader, the opportunity to form a new government, even if his party attains the highest number of Knesset seats in the March 2 election.
