International newspapers and websites focused in reports and opinion articles on the genocide and starvation war practiced by Israel on the residents of the Gaza Strip, and on Israeli fears of the release of Palestinian prisoner Marwan Barghouti, as well as international conflicts over the seas.

Michael Fakhri, the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to food, said that Israel is not only targeting civilians but is trying to destroy the future of the Palestinian people by harming their children.

Fakhri added to the British newspaper The Guardian, "Israel is deliberately starving the Palestinians, and must be held accountable for war crimes and genocide. This means that the entire State of Israel is guilty, not individuals or the current government alone."

In the New York Times, an opinion article said, “After October 7, the lie was exposed that Israel can get everything regarding security,” noting that “it is not possible to stifle and marginalize Palestinian self-determination, enjoy regional normalization, and also live at a standard.” Reasonable peace."

In another context, James Shooter wrote in the Financial Times that demands for the release of Barghouti - a member of the Central Committee of the National Liberation Movement (Fatah) - have brought the Palestinian leader back into the spotlight again.

The writer quoted an Israeli official as saying, "The release of Barghouti will be very costly politically, as it is seen as the straw that broke the camel's back when there are no other options to secure the release of the Israeli hostages."

As for the French newspaper "Le Monde", in an opinion article by writer Julien Buisseau, it focused on international conflicts, and said, "Conflicts on land extend to the seas."

The writer believes that from the Bab al-Mandab Strait to the Black Sea via China or the North, the sea will play a major role in the new global political geography.

He explains, "The attacks launched by the Houthis that targeted commercial ships in the Bab al-Mandab Strait, south of the Suez Canal, in an echo of the war between Israel and the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), are the latest example of this. The Black Sea has also become a scene of conflict between Russia and Ukraine."
