Israel and Hezbollah are at it again

Hezbollah and Israel traded rocket fire over the weekend in what the Associated Press is calling a “significant escalation” in tensions. The Shia militant group fired a volley of rockets towards Israel on Friday, and Israeli artillery hit back. No casualties have been reported.

Summer wildfires have burned 10 mn acres of land in Russia's Siberian region of Yakutia, with 175 fires still burning as southern Europe faces its worst heatwave in decades, the Wall Street Journal reported. The wildfires have produced a record amount of carbon emissions in Russia, forcing the evacuation of dozens of villages on one of the coldest spots on earth. The massive fires are also engulfing wide expanses of Greece, France, Spain, Ukraine, Cyprus, Croatia, Sweden, Israel, Romania, Switzerland and Western Canada, with still more weeks of the fire expected.
