Senior Israeli Leader Resigns


Israel’s military intelligence chief announced his resignation yesterday over failing to prevent Hamas' Oct. 7 cross-border raid that left 1,200 people in Israel dead and more than 250 others taken hostage. Maj. Gen. Aharon Haliva is the first senior Israeli leader to resign over the attack.


The news came as Israel maintains it will advance a full-scale invasion of Gaza's southern border city of Rafah, where more than 1 million Palestinians are sheltering. Meanwhile, a report yesterday found facilities for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees have at times been used for "political or military gains" but that Israel has not provided evidence supporting its claim that 12% of the agency's 13,000 staffers are members of Hamas or other militant groups. 


Separately, Columbia University held classes virtually amid sit-in protests calling for divestment from Israel-linked companies. The unauthorized protests led to dozens of suspensions and arrests, as well as accusations of harassment against Jewish students. Dozens of protesters were also arrested at Yale University.
