What to Know About the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

How the Conflict Started:

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict dates back to  1947 where the United Nations adopted the ‘Partition Plan’, which sought to divide the British Mandate of Palestine into Arab and Jewish states.

On May 14, 1948, the State of Israel was created which sparked the first Arab-Israeli War.

The war ended in 1949 with Israel’s victory, but 750,000 Palestinians were displaced and the territory was divided into 3 parts: the State of Israel, the West Bank and Gaza.

What are the Main Problems?

These include what should happen to Palestinian refugees.

World Bank, AU to Deploy Vaccines for 400m Africans

The World Bank, and the African Union, covid-19 Africa Vaccine Acquisition Task Team (AVATT), have announced a decision to work together to deploy vaccines for 400 million Africans.

The pledge came after the president of the World Bank, David Malpass, met with AVATT to discuss ways to accelerate vaccine deployment to Africa, according to a joint statement by the UN Economic Commission for Africa.

In a statement on Monday, the organizations said it is essential that countries feel they can get sufficient doses quickly and in an affordable way, especially with over 41 countries at different stages of finalizing their orders for purchasing the vaccine and with vaccination momentum growing.

The vaccine doses are a critical step towards the continental goal of vaccinating at least 60 per cent of Africans, said John Nkengasong, director of the African Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and member of the AVATT.

Under the AVATT structure, AU member states were allocated vaccines according to the size of their populations through a pooled procurement mechanism.

Head of The World's Biggest Family, 38 Wives, 89 Children, Dies at 76

A man named Ziona Chana, known to be the head of the world’s largest family in India has died. He died on Sunday at the age of 76.

Ziona had 38 wives and 89 children, according to a tweet from Zoramthanga, the chief minister of Mizoram, the north-eastern Indian state where Ziona lived.

Ziona was a patriarch who belonged to a Christian tribal sect that promotes polygamy as God’s will.

His father, Chana, founded the sect in Mizoram’s Baktwang village, where Ziona’s vast family lives across a single property.

It is unclear if Ziona, who wed his first wife at the age of 17, was legally married to all the women he described as his wives. Indian authorities often do not prosecute tribal communities for polygamy.
