This country has been having a nationwide nervous breakdown since 9/11. A nation of people suddenly broke, the market economy goes to shit, and they’re threatened on every side by an unknown, sinister enemy. But I don't think fear is a very effective way of dealing with things—of responding to reality. Fear is just another word for ignorance.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israeli forces have surrounded the home of Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar on Wednesday.


Netanyahu clarified that the IDF did not expect to find Sinwar in the complex, but said it was "only a matter of time" before the terrorist leader was found.


"Two brief updates: Last night I said that our forces could reach anywhere in the Gaza Strip. Now they are surrounding Sinwar's house. So his house is not his fortress, and he can flee, but before we arrive “It is only a matter of time before he does,” Netanyahu said.

Sellafield, regarded as the most hazardous nuclear site in Europe, has developed a leak in a massive radioactive waste silo that has prompted concerns about the facility’s safety measures, as well as potential dangers to the public and the environment, The Guardian has reported.

The two-square-mile (6km sq) plant, located in Cumbria in England’s northwest, is responsible for the storage and decommissioning of waste from nuclear weapons programs and power generation. It was previously used to generate nuclear power from 1956 to 2003.

The measure in question would expand compensation under the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) to cover Idaho, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Guam and Colorado and extending it for a further 19 years.

Several communities that were on the front lines of U.S. atomic testing are not covered by the current RECA, which is set to expire in May. 

However, it’s not clear whether the measure will make it into the annual National Defense Authorization Act and ultimately across the finish line.

Brits will be told to 'go in, stay in, tune in' if the UK is hit by a 'radiation emergency', according to new advice from health chiefs.

The guidance was published today by UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA).

It comes amid rising global tensions involving nuclear powers such as China and Russia.
