Key developments from Thursday, November 9:
French President Emmanuel Macron opened a humanitarian aid conference for Gaza in Paris, stating that there must be a humanitarian pause in the fighting in the Gaza Strip and that countries must “work for a ceasefire” in the Israel-Hamas war.
The Israeli military said its latest hypersonic ballistic missile interceptor had destroyed a “target” headed toward Israel from the Red Sea, highlighting potential attacks from Yemen. The announcement of the landmark launch of the Arrow 3 interceptor came shortly after Yemen’s Iran-backed Huthi rebels said they had fired “a barrage of ballistic missiles” at Israel.
The French foreign ministry accused Russian online networks of attempting to “exploit international crises to sow confusion” in France and in Europe by sharing photos of the Stars of David appearing around Paris, graffiti that has been widely suspected of being an anti-Semitic statement.
