Sponsored Post Vitamin D2 Canada Persia
Israel says more than 200 hostages are still trapped in the Gaza Strip. They and the Palestinians who live there face another night of intense Israeli bombardment. Dawna Friesen reports on how nowhere in Gaza is safe, what freelance journalist Aziz Elkahlout and his family are enduring, and how significantly more humanitarian aid is desperately needed.

New details are emerging about some of the atrocities Hamas has committed, as the Israeli government releases bodycam video taken by Hamas fighters who went on murderous rampages. Global News has also spoken with the heartbroken daughter of Nir Oz resident Bracha Levinson, 74, whose lifeless body was captured on a video uploaded to her Facebook profile. Jeff Semple reports from Jerusalem on how much footage Israel says it has collected and why the militants documented the massacres.

While the U.S. has firmly supported Israel and its right to defend itself against Hamas since violence in the region flared up, there are hints President Joe Biden's administration is urging Israel's government to delay its ground invasion of the Gaza Strip. Reggie Cecchini explains what's behind the tactic and America's powerful influence on where the brutal conflict heads.

So far, the Canadian government has helped more than 1,600 Canadians, permanent residents, and eligible family members flee Israel since the country was attacked by Hamas militants. Now, Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly is warning Canadians to "get out" of Lebanon. Crystal Goomansingh reports from Tyre and Alma Al-Shaab, where thousands of residents have been displaced as tensions rise.

The heads of intelligence from the "Five Eyes" alliance are publicly amplifying their concerns about the Chinese government's espionage and hacking. Eric Sorensen explains what Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Australia, and New Zealand are worried about and the warning from CSIS to Canadian universities collaborating with China.

Plus, in Quebec, hundreds of St. Lawrence Seaway workers have walked off the job, bringing one of Canada's most important marine shipping routes to a standstill. Mike Armstrong explains what the union and employer can't agree on, how much this strike is costing the Canadian economy each day, and which industries are greatly affected.
