The Israeli Defence Force (IDF) said on Friday that their soldiers mistakenly identified three Israeli hostages as a threat and opened fire during combat in northern Gaza, killing all three men. Two were soldiers and the third was a foreign national. A spokesperson was also unable to answer the question of whether or not the three men, all in their 20s, had put their hands up or shouted in Hebrew. The Israeli military says this was a tragic error and that an investigation is underway. Daniele Hamamdjian has the details.

In addition, Hamas has released over 100 of the more than 200 hostages that the militants took during the attack on Israel 70 days ago. Israel has vowed to free all the hostages and defeat Hamas. But how is the offensive being carried out as the U.S. pressures its ally to change? Crystal Goomansingh reports.

Canada is capping how much money private broadcasters will get under a $100 million deal with Google. Under the framework, print outlets will receive $63 million while private broadcasters will split $30 million.

In Ontario, a mother's death is raising fresh questions about the standard of care that Indigenous patients receive in this country. November Kelly died earlier this year of a severe infection, which her family says could have been prevented. They're now looking for answers — and action — for the alleged mistreatment. In part two of an investigation, Melissa Ridgen reports from Onigaming, Ont., where many Indigenous people say Kelly’s case is far from unique.

According to the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), there are some troubling real estate numbers that could cause more financial strain for Canadians in the years to come. In November, Vancouver and Toronto saw a nearly 40-per cent drop in new housing starts, while Montreal saw a 30-per cent cut. As Mackenzie Gray reports, the sharp drop is putting more pressure on the housing crisis and the federal government.

In Manitoba, a small town received devastating news six months ago: a bus carrying 25 members of their community was involved in a fatal crash on the Trans-Canada Highway. Seventeen people lost their lives as a result of the collision and eight others were left with life-altering injuries. Now, for the first time, some of the survivors share their pain and journey together. Marney Blunt has their story.

And finally, a New Brunswick couple has paired up to help keep the feet of people without a home safe and warm this winter — one pair of socks at a time. Last year, New Brunswick collected more than half of the 20,000 pairs collected nationally thanks to the efforts of these sock ambassadors. Shelley Steeves has the details.
