Ahead of the U.N. report examining the 50-day war with Hamas in Gaza last summer, Israel released its own study of the conflict. During the war, more than 2,200 Palestinians and 73 Israelis were killed. Israel has long held that the U.N. is biased against the Jewish state.
Also this week in Israel in the News:
• Violence is brewing on Israel’s northern border with Syria in the Golan Heights.
• The Palestinian unity government has dissolved, leaving Hamas in sole control of Gaza.
• Russian President Vladimir Putin has responded to criticism over his country’s actions in Ukraine.
This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein on Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
