Israel Detects Hamas Terror Tunnels Under UN School
Israel announced on Friday that it had discovered a network of terror tunnels running beneath two schools in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) and demanded that the UN “strongly and unequivocally condemn Hamas” and formally classify the group a “terrorist organization” as it already is classified by the US, Canada, EU and several other governments. UN Middle East envoy Nickolay Mladenov tweeted on Saturday; “Despicable to risk the lives of children! Hamas must end illicit arms buildup and militant activity in Gaza.”

On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared during his remarks to the Cabinet that “I regret that UNRWA, to a large degree, by its very existence, perpetuates – and does not solve – the Palestinian refugee problem Therefore, the time has come to disband UNRWA and integrate it into (the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR.”))

IDF Embarks on Massive Earthquake Drill
The IDF Home Front Command, in cooperation with the Israel Police and various other civil defense organizations and local municipalities began a four-day drill on Sunday meant to prepare for what geologists have said is the inevitability of a massive earthquake which could hit Israel any day. “Statistics show that a severe earthquake happens every 100 years, and so there is a chance we will face one soon,” a senior IDF officer said, adding that the training for responding to an earthquake would be useful for other contingencies as well.

Israel Blesses the World
Researchers at Hadassah-University Medical Center in Jerusalem announced over the weekend that they have discovered a link between Metformin, a drug used to treat type-2 diabetes, and the delay and even prevention of certain types of breast cancer recurrence. The research was published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Elsewhere, Jerusalem’s Hebrew University announced this week that it will soon open a new center for neurological treatment and research. The Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences in Jerusalem will be dedicated on Tuesday, with Foundation chief Lily Safra as the guest of honor.

Iran Claims to Have Eliminated Terror Cell Leader
Iranian security forces issued a statement over the weekend claiming that they had hunted down and killed the mastermind behind last week’s attacks in Teheran, which were claimed by the Islamic State (IS) terror militia. Reports out of Iran indicate that a massive security crackdown is underway, with dozens of individuals arrested in several cities on suspicion of involvement in the attacks.

Qatar Government Retains Former US Attorney General
The beleaguered Persian Gulf Emirate of Qatar retained the services of former US Attorney General John Ashcroft over the weekend, reportedly paying $2.5 million for his law firm to represent it for the next 90 days as it seeks to comply with various US requirements for the reporting of international financial transactions and other areas in which it has fallen under scrutiny by US agencies.

“The firm's work will include crisis response and management, program and system analysis, media outreach, education and advocacy regarding the client's historical, current and future efforts to combat global terror and its compliance goals and accomplishments," according to a letter by Ashcroft firm partner Michael Sullivan included in the filing.

Senior PA Official Donates Money to Rambam Hospital 
A senior Palestinian Authority official, identified only as “M” to protect his privacy, has donated tens of thousands of shekels to Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center after he was treated there for cancer, one of approximately 1,200 Palestinians from the West Bank and Gaza Strip treated at the hospital every year. His donation is slated to be put toward construction of a recovery ward in the Oncology department.

“When I came to Rambam, I saw a medical team caring for patients, but I also saw the suffering of the sick children,” M. recalled at a recent ceremony where he made his donation. “Palestinian, Israeli, Syrian and other children are treated there for serious illnesses and need all the help they can get. Both Israeli and Palestinian societies suffer from the damage of violence. I want a world in which we can all contribute to peace and health, take care of children, save lives, share knowledge and even train Palestinian doctors at Rambam. Medicine is a bridge between people, and I hope that thanks to this donation and those that will come, we will all merit a better tomorrow.”
