Hamas fires missiles at Tel Aviv for first time in months

HAMAS launched missiles at Tel Aviv, setting off sirens in Israel's financial centre for the first time in four months, as the Islamist Palestinian group sought to show military strength despite Israel's Gaza offensive. The Israeli military said eight projectiles were identified crossing from the area of Rafah, the southern tip of the Gaza Strip where Israel kept up operations despite a ruling by the top U.N. court on Friday ordering it to stop attacking the city. A number of the projectiles were intercepted, it said. There were no reports of casualties. In a statement on its Telegram channel, the Hamas al-Qassam Brigades…

Houthi missiles fired at ship in Red Sea, U.S. military says

YEMEN'S Iran-aligned Houthi group fired missiles at a Liberian-flagged container ship in the Red Sea but did not hit the vessel, the U.S. Central Command said.

Pakistan fires retaliatory strike at Iran, stoking regional tension

PAKISTAN said it used rockets and drones to strike separatist Baloch militants inside Iran, in a retaliatory strike two days after Tehran said it attacked the bases of another group within Pakistani territory. Iranian media said several missiles hit a village in the Sistan-Baluchestan province that borders Pakistan, killing at least nine people, including four children. The neighbours have had rocky ties in the past, but the strikes are the highest-profile cross-border intrusions in recent years and come amid growing worries about instability in the Middle East since the war between Israel and Hamas erupted on October 7. "A number of terrorists…

Homes smashed, 34 wounded in latest Russian strikes on Ukraine

RUSSIA unleashed a fresh volley of missiles on Ukraine overnight, causing huge blazes in a city in the east, damaging dozens of homes and wounding at least 34 people. The attack on Pavlohrad, a city and railway hub, came during the second wave of nationwide missile strikes in three days, with Moscow apparently reviving its winter tactic of long-range strikes ahead of a planned Ukrainian counteroffensive. A huge crater had been blasted in the backyard of a house that was strewn with debris on Pavlohrad's outskirts. Homes nearby were badly damaged. In the city centre, the windows of a dormitory…

Russian ‘kamikaze’ drones hit Kyiv, Putin arrives in ally Belarus

TOM BALMFORTH and VALENTYN OGIRENKO RUSSIA hit key infrastructure in and around Kyiv in a "kamikaze" drone attack, hours before President Vladimir Putin arrived in Belarus, fuelling fears he will pressure his ally to join a new offensive on Ukraine. The Ukrainian Air Force said its air defences shot down 30 drones in what was the third Russian air strike on the Ukrainian capital in six days and the latest in a series of assaults since October targeting the Ukrainian energy grid, causing sweeping blackouts amid sub-zero temperatures. Officials said at least three people were injured and nine buildings were damaged…

Fighting rages in east Ukraine, Europe agrees extra military aid to Ukraine

NICK STARKOV and PAVEL POLITYUK RUSSIAN forces pounded targets in eastern and southern Ukraine with missiles, drones and artillery, Ukraine's General Staff said, while millions remained without power in subzero temperatures after further strikes on key infrastructure.

The EU ministers were also due to discuss a ninth package of sanctions on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, while Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy was set to…

North Korea fires 23 missiles, one landing off South Korean coast for first time

JOSH SMITH and SOO-HYANG CHOI NORTH Korea fired at least 23 missiles into the sea, including one that landed less than 60 km (40 miles) off South Korea's coast, which South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol described as "territorial encroachment" and Washington denounced as "reckless". It was the first time a ballistic missile had landed near the South's waters since the peninsula was divided in 1945, and the most missiles were fired by the North in a single day. South Korea issued rare air raid warnings and launched its own missiles in response. The launches came just hours after Pyongyang demanded that the…
