  • #News A recent incident involving a Saudia airliner, flight SV 805, traveling from Dhaka to Riyadh, grabbed attention due to a medical emergency involving a 44-year-old passenger named Abu Tahir. The situation unfolded as the aircraft approached Mumbai while flying over Indian airspace. The pilot requested permission for a medical emergency landing but was unexpectedly denied by Mumbai airport. As a result, the pilot changed course and headed towards Karachi.

While flying over the Arabian Sea, air traffic controllers directed the aircraft to divert and land in Karachi. The plane, operated by Saudia, safely landed at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport at 7:28 on Wednesday. Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority promptly sent a medical team to assist Abu Tahir.

Despite successfully handling the medical emergency, the reasons behind Mumbai airport's denial of landing permission remain unclear. Some reports suggest that the refusal might be linked to the passenger being a Bangladeshi Muslim. Allegedly, Indian air traffic controllers inquired about the passenger’s medical condition and, upon learning about the passenger's nationality, instructed the aircraft to reroute to Pakistan.
  • #News Recently, the Los Angeles police department released body-camera footage of an incident where officers fatally shot a man who was holding a plastic fork.

Maccani was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Fortunately, none of the warehouse employees or police officers were injured during the incident.
  • US hypocrisy on the Israel Palestine issue

State Department's double standard on UN experts' report on sexual violence of Palestinians women: 

Spox: "I have seen those allegations I can't independently confirm those reports"

Reporter: "Did you ever have [independent] confirmation of what Hamas allegedly did to Israeli women and girls?"

Spox: "There are Israeli medical experts who  testified to that."

Reporter: "You consider those instances to be confirmed but not taking into account the UN experts report" "If not the UN...does it have to be an Israeli medical expert that you would take into account?"

Spox: "A credible medical expert...we would look at."
  • #News A recent analysis conducted by the Global Nutrition Cluster highlights a concerning rise in malnutrition among children, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers in the Gaza Strip. This surge in malnutrition is attributed to the ongoing conflict, now spanning 20 weeks, which has severely limited access to food, safe water, and healthcare services.

The situation is particularly dire in the Northern Gaza Strip, where access to aid has been severely restricted for weeks. Shockingly, screenings conducted in this region reveal that 1 in 6 children under 2 years old suffer from acute malnutrition, with nearly 3% experiencing severe wasting, the most life-threatening form of malnutrition.

In comparison, the Southern Gaza Strip, specifically in Rafah where aid has been more accessible, also faces malnutrition concerns, albeit to a lesser extent, with 5% of children under 2 affected.

The conflict has caused a rapid deterioration in nutritional standards. Previously, wasting among children under 5 was rare, but now, the rate of acute malnutrition among children under 2 in Northern Gaza has skyrocketed to 15.6%. This decline is alarming and unprecedented.

The lack of food, water, and essential services exacerbates the risk of malnutrition across the Gaza Strip.
