Israel offensive

On May 4, the Israel Defense Forces announced an air strike on dozens of targets in the Gaza Strip.

The office of the Turkish news agency Anadolu in the Gaza Strip was hit in the course of the offensive.

Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu called the incident an example of aggression on the Israeli side, and an act of violence against innocent people. The minister blamed Israel for “crimes against humanity” and stated that Ankara will continue to support the people of Palestine.

North Korean missiles

North Korea tested several short-range missiles last week. According to the South Korean military, last Saturday, the DPRK launched several tests achieving ranges of 70 to 200 kilometers from Wonsan city on the east coast towards the Sea of Japan in the northeast.

According to Pentagon, they could not officially confirm the launch had taken place but were studying the relevant information.

Venezuela

Juan Guaido’s continued attempts to win over the Venezuelan military were unsuccessful.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro appealed to representatives of the armed forces of the republic with a call to preserve unity and protect the country from the attacks of imperialism.

He also stressed that the Venezuelan army is the “most powerful” in the region.

Maduro also said that Venezuela and the republic’s armed forces should be ready to repel the United States if they decide to launch an attack against the country.

Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was sentenced to 50 weeks in prison by the court in London on Wednesday, in a decision the organization called “shocking.”

On the morning of April 11, 2019, Assange was detained on a warrant issued in 2012.

The US seek Assange’s extradition, accusing him of conspiracy to commit cyber espionage.
