Two-state solution needed for Palestine, Qatar emir tells Kushner (Al Jazeera)

"Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has told White House adviser Jared Kushner that Doha supports a two-state solution, with East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian state, to end the conflict with Israel."

"Sheikh Tamim told Kushner that Qatar remained committed to the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, in which Arab nations offered Israel normalised ties in return for a statehood deal with the Palestinians and full Israeli withdrawal from territory captured in the 1967 Middle East War."

Three children burn to death in Gaza candle fire (Middle East Monitor)

"Three children were burnt to death in a fire in the besieged Gaza Strip on Tuesday. It is believed that the fire was started by candles being used to provide light in the family home during one of the territory’s frequent and lengthy power cuts. Mahmoud, Mohammed, and Yousef Al-Hazeen, the eldest of which was no more than ten years old, were brothers living in Al-Nuseirat refugee camp."

"The occupation has prevented sufficient fuel from entering the Strip which means that the sole power station is unable to operate anywhere near full capacity. At the moment, in some areas of Gaza electricity is only available for four hours a day, meaning that many residents have to resort to candles to light their homes."
Israeli soldier condemned for putting knee on Palestinian protester's neck (BBC)

"Israel's military says it is looking into an incident in which a soldier was filmed with his knee on the neck of a Palestinian man being handcuffed at a protest in the occupied West Bank."

"The footage shows Khairi Hanoon, a well-known activist in his 60s, being pushed to the ground by the soldier. The soldier then places his knee on Mr Hanoon's neck and head for 50 seconds." 

"He compared the incident to the one in which George Floyd was killed by US police. On 25 May, an officer in Minneapolis knelt on Floyd's neck for several minutes even after he said he could not breathe, sparking a protest movement."

"That's how I felt, and I felt he was choking me," Mr Hanoon said.

Palestine campaigners condemn ‘political silence’ surrounding Gaza (Morning Star)

"At an online rally organised by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign on Tuesday evening, Gazan doctors, trade unionists and activists appealed for the British public to demand an urgent end to the crippling siege."

"Ahmed Mhanna, the director Al-Awda hospital in northern Gaza, warned that the situation was “critical,” with the strip ill-equipped to cope with a Covid outbreak."

"PSC director Ben Jamal condemned the press for reporting on the issue only when 'Israel is killing Palestinians in very large numbers in a small period of time.' Other speakers at the rally, attended by around 1,000 people, included former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, MP Bell Ribeiro-Addy, and Unite assistant general secretary Gail Cartmail."
