Tensions high in Gaza Strip as IDF footage shows airstrikes on ‘Hamas targets’



Israel claims it intercepted a number of ‘projectiles’ following an aerial bombardment of suspected Hamas targets in Gaza on Saturday. 

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) claim the strikes were in response to earlier missile attacks.

The Israeli Air Force struck 15 targets in three different locations in the Gaza Strip on Saturday. 

The attacks come less than a week after Egypt brokered a ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian militants following a month of unrest arising from the Great March of Return protests and the US decision to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

“This strike was conducted in response to the projectiles which were fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel last night,” the IDF said on Twitter. 

“The IDF views the Hamas terror organization’s actions with great severity and will continue fulfilling its mission to protect Israeli civilians as necessary.” 

It is not yet clear if there were any casualties in the attacks.

Sirens were reportedly heard in various areas along the Israel-Gaza border on Saturday night. 

According to Haaretz, its rockets were fired in retaliation for the death of Razan Al-Najar, a 21-year-old Palestinian medic killed by an Israeli sniper while treating wounded protesters near the border fence at Khan Younes on Friday.

Speaking to RT, Al-Najar’s mother claimed that her daughter was deliberately targeted by Israeli sniper fire. "My daughter Razan was targeted. 

They knew she was a paramedic. She was the first female paramedic in the field," Sabreen Najar said. "She was directly shot by the Israeli forces. 

The bullet deliberately targeted her, it was not a random bullet. It was a sniper."

Following the IDF’s actions late on Saturday, it’s understood that at least two projectiles were fired at Israel from Gaza in the early hours of Sunday. 

The Israeli army says it intercepted both attacks.

Nearly 120 Palestinians have been killed since the beginning of the Great March of Return protests on March 30, mainly by Israeli live fire. 

Thousands of others have been injured as Israel maintains its right to protect the border by all means necessary.

Armenian protesters block traffic, railways & airport as protest leader loses PM bid

Anti-government protesters disrupted traffic in Armenia’s capital, blocking railways and roads leading to Yerevan International Airport, after the parliament voted against opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan’s bid for interim PM.
Protesters managed to block streets connecting downtown Yerevan to residential districts, disrupting transportation in Armenia’s capital, footage from the scene shows. 
Yerevan’s metro system has also been paralyzed as demonstrators sit on the tracks, preventing trains from passing.
Meanwhile, protesters disrupted traffic on a road leading to Yerevan’s Zvartnots International Airport, located just 12km from the center of the city. 
Consequently, some passengers had to go the rest of the way on foot in order to catch their flights, according to Sputnik news agency.
Railway services have also been disrupted all across the country amid the demonstrations, a spokesman for South Caucasus Railways confirmed to Interfax. 
Some other highways, including the one connecting th…

Strange phenomenon under Africa threatens to flip Earth’s magnetic field

Earth’s magnetic field is decaying at such a rapid rate that scientists think the poles may flip. 
New research shows the most significant weakening is happening under Africa, in an area called the ‘South Atlantic Anomaly.’
As well as giving us our north and south poles, the magnetic field blankets the Earth, protecting it from solar winds and cosmic radiation. 
Without it there would likely be no life on our planet today. 
However, the forcefield has weakened significantly in the past 160 years and scientists have suggested that it could be in the process of flipping. 
Effectively this means a switch in magnetic polarity and would see compasses point south instead of north.
Strangely, this has actually happened several times in the history of the planet, occurring roughly every 200,000 to 300,000 years. 
Approximately 40,000 years ago, it attempted to switch before snapping back into place. 
This NASA illustration captures the enormous disruption to the fields during a reversal:

Professor Stephen Hawking Says Knows What Existed Before The Big Bang

According to the latest comments made by Professor Stephen Hawking, Before the Big Bang, time existed in a bent state that was distorted along another dimension.
The famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has an answer to the enigma of what existed before the Big Bang, the beginning of the Universe, 13,800 million years ago.
In an interview with his colleague Neil deGrasse Tyson in the TV show ‘Star Talk‘ broadcasted on the National Geographic Channel, Hawking explained what existed before the universe.
“The boundary condition of the universe…is that it has no boundary,” Hawking said.
According to this theory, the history of the universe is not a flat line but a four-dimensional, curved object, “just as the surface of the Earth, but with two more dimensions,” Hawking said. 
As explained by Professor Hawking, the Big Bang was practically the formation as we today understand as ‘time,’ since this event, 13,800 million years ago, broke the known laws of physics. 
It also means that anyth…
