Have you missed the news a bit in the last two days? We summarize the main information for Saturday November 25 and Sunday November 26.

The releases of hostages held by Hamas in the Gaza Strip, which began on Friday, continued on Saturday and Sunday. In exchange, 39 Palestinian detainees were released from prison each of two days.

On Saturday, Hamas delayed the release until the last moment, claiming that Israel was not fully respecting its commitments. Ultimately, thirteen Israelis and four Thais were released.

On Sunday, fourteen Israelis and three foreigners were released. Among them, a 4-year-old child who has dual Israeli and American nationality, and a man with a Russian passport.

The four-day truce agreed between Israel and Hamas is due to end on Monday.

Since Friday, 248 humanitarian aid trucks have entered the southern Gaza Strip through the Rafah crossing, according to the UN.

The former mayor of Lyon Gérard Collomb, ex-minister of the interior in Emmanuel Macron’s first government, died Saturday evening at the age of 76.

Suffering from stomach cancer, “when it became clear that his illness could not be improved by any anti-cancer treatment, he wished to benefit from deep sedation which allowed him to pass away peacefully with the his” around 9 p.m. Saturday, his wife wrote in a brief message.

His state of health had deteriorated considerably in recent days and he had been taken care of by the oncology department of Lyon-Sud hospital. His death occurred “during a short period of coma,” according to his wife. Gérard Collomb was elected to the town hall of Lyon in 2001, left his post to join Place Beauvau in 2017, then failed to retain his position in the 2020 municipal elections.

The nine suspects arrested after the death of Thomas, a 16-year-old teenager killed on November 19 in Crépol, in Drôme, were indicted on Saturday for murder by an organized gang, attempted murder or intentional violence committed in a meeting, announced the Valencian public prosecutor’s office.

Six people, including two minors, were placed “in pre-trial detention” and three, including a minor, “under judicial supervision” following their hearing by magistrates late at night, the Valencia prosecutor’s office announced on Sunday, which refuses to provide any details on the identities and charges against each of the suspects. The investigation has not yet made it possible to fully elucidate the circumstances of the murder of Crépol, a town in Drôme des Collines. The tragedy sparked violent reactions from the far right.

Several dozen hooded far-right individuals, some armed with baseball bats, marched Saturday evening in Romans-sur-Isère to “fight it out,” according to the prefect of Drôme. Furthermore, the mosques of Cherbourg and Valence were targeted by Islamophobic remarks and threats, following the murder of Thomas. The perpetrators of these attacks remain unknown.

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, thousands of people, many of whom wore a touch of purple, called on the government for additional means to eradicate this violence.

Feminist associations and unions have launched the call throughout France for better protection of women victims of violence, in the workplace, in relationships and in armed conflicts. Alongside the collectives of associations led by

Emmanuel Macron also spoke in a message posted on social networks, in which he defended and congratulated his action in the matter since 2017. For feminist associations, unions and left-wing personalities, we are far from the mark.

“On the night of November 25, 2023, the enemy launched a record number of Shahed-type drones [Shaded-136 drones, Iranian-made] over Ukraine,” the Air Force said Ukrainian Saturday morning on Telegram, adding that it had recorded “around 75 launches” from Russian territory during the night, and specifying that “the main direction of the attack [was] the city of Kiev.”

This is “the most massive drone attack on Kiev” since the start of the war, said the mayor of the Ukrainian capital, Vitali Klitschko, in a message posted on Saturday shortly before 8 a.m. on Telegram. “Russian leaders seem proud of their ability to kill people,” reacted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on X. He clarified that the Ukrainian army had “shot down the majority of drones, but not all.” Five people were injured and dozens of buildings and buildings were left without power.
