Fighting between Israeli soldiers and Hamas has ceased following a four-day truce agreement. Under the terms of the deal, Hamas released 69 captives while israel released around 150 Palestinian inmates. The truce has been extended for another two days, and both sides are expecting to swap captives. Rachel, an Israeli mother, showed Musk a video on her phone of her son, Hersh, being snatched by Hamas despite being gravely injured during a meeting with Israeli President Isaaz Herzog, Musk, and families of captives.
The white house also charged Musk with "abhorrent promotion" of racism after he embraced a conspiracy theory that claimed Jews were inciting hatred and undermining White majorities. "Unfortunately, we are inundated with antisemitism, or anti-Jewish sentiment." You have a significant role to play. And I believe we must fight it jointly because, sadly, there is a lot of antisemitism on the platforms you run," the Israeli President was reported as saying by AFP.
Shlomo Karhi, Israel's Communications Minister, stated on X that Starlink satellite units will only operate in israel and the Gaza Strip with the agreement of his ministry.
