  • 5842 - Troops in 'heart of Khan Younis' after bombarding city - Israel

    Israel says it's had "the most intense day" of fighting since its ground operation began in late October. The Israel Defense Force says its troops are in "the heart of Khan Younis" after bombarding the southern city overnight.

    We'll hear from one of Israel's staunchest supporters in the US Congress.

    Also in the programme: As the UK signs a treaty with Rwanda to find a new way to deal with asylum-seekers, can the Rwandan government allay fears over its human rights record?; and the regime-backed phenomenon that's sweeping football in Turkmenistan.

  • 5841 - UN: Gazans facing "even more hellish scenario"

    The World Health Organisation says the situation in Gaza is getting worse by the hour, with bombardments by Israeli forces around Khan Younis and Rafah in southern Gaza. But the head of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defence Committee tell us that Israel is not trying to force everyone out of the Gaza Strip.

    Also in the programme: the Nigerian president has called for an investigation into the deaths of at least 85 civilians after an army drone accidentally struck a village; and we speak to a scientist who is studying the world's biggest iceberg.

  • 5840 - Israeli tanks reported near Khan Younis as civilians urged to flee

    As Israel intensifies its offensive in southern Gaza, the US says it sees an improvement in the way which Israel is narrowing its targets. A resident of a southern Gazan city tells us it doesn't feel that way. We will also hear questions asked about the UN's response to the evidence of widespread sexual violence in the Hamas attacks.

    And why, at the UN climate summit, a poet young is trying to make some noise.

  • 5839 - Hospitals in southern Gaza 'overwhelmed'

    As Israel mounts a ground offensive against Hamas in southern Gaza, a surgeon at a hospital in Khan Younis says it has more than 360 people on the operating list, which is "impossible to deal with", and supplies of anaesthetics and painkillers are running out.

    Also in the programme: a Ugandan climate activist tells us that she is sceptical about change at the COP28 summit in Dubai; and voters in Venezuela have overwhelmingly approved its claim to territory in neighbouring Guyana, although the turnout in the referendum was low.

  • 5838 - Israeli ground operation begins in southern Gaza

    With the collapse of the temporary truce between Israel and Hamas, Southern Gaza has again become the focus of the Israeli military's offensive. As the language from the aid agencies still working in southern Gaza is becoming increasingly desperate, we hear from UNICEF spokesperson, James Elder.

    Also in the programme: Venezuela is holding a controversial referendum, where the government wants voters to support its claim to a large part of neighbouring Guyana; and we hear from a Welsh man who kept a live bomb as a garden ornament.
