  • In the streets north of Bethlehem, Palestinian protesters hanged and burned effigies of Trump and V.P. Pence.
  • The world commemorated International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
  • The IDF warned that Iran continues its support of Hezbollah, while also turning Lebanon into a “missile factory.”
