Gaza animals find new home following deaths at zoo

Fathy Jomaa, owner of the zoo in Rafah, southern Gaza, blamed bad economic conditions and a decade of Israeli-led blockade on the narrow coastal enclave for leaving him unable to properly feed and care for his animals. Jomaa had come under intense criticism by animal care groups after a series of recent deaths and mishaps. Earlier this year he de-clawed two young lions so that zoo visitors could safely pose for selfies with them.

Qatar to pay aid into Gaza, with Hamas approval

The move was widely seen as a compromise between Qatar, which appears intent on increasing its regional influence, and the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, which controls Gaza. Qatar’s point-man for Gaza relief efforts, Mohammed Al-Emadi, said in Gaza: "It was agreed to allocate the Qatari financial grant to pay for humanitarian projects with full cooperation and coordination with the United Nations." He said the first agreement with the U.N. would be signed on Monday next week, setting up a ...

Swim team braves pollution to dive into Gaza waters

Coach Amjad Tantish talks through a warm-up before they race from the trash-strewn beach into the sea as he continues to bark instructions. The Mediterranean hugs the entire 40 kilometre (25 mile) western border of the Gaza Strip, but almost no one enters its waters. More than 95 percent of tap water is polluted, and water-related diseases are the primary cause of child morbidity in Gaza, according to the World Health Organization.

5 Futuristic (And Terrifying) Weapons That Could Change Warfare Forever

The military implications of such developments are self-evident, as “invisibility cloaks” would make it possible for fighters—from ordinary soldiers to special forces—to operate in enemy territory undetected, or at least buy them enough time to take the initiative. Such capabilities would reduce the risk of casualties during military operations while increasing the ability to launch surgical and surprise attacks against an opponent, or conduct sabotage and assassination.

Gaza Bronze Age remains disappearing under concrete

Archaeologists and preservation activists in the Gaza Strip have managed to halt the destruction of a Bronze Age site for now, but the future of what remains may still be in jeopardy. Palestinian archaeologist Moain Sadeq says the mound at Tell es-Sakan near Gaza City is a "unique" site that could offer an invaluable glimpse into the region's ancient heritage. A few weeks ago the earthmoving equipment returned yet again, destroying a large part of archaeological excavations carried out in 1999...
