We present a compilation of events from the past night. We have gathered a few of the most important ones.

President of the United States Joe Biden made a private call to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisting on reducing the number of civilian casualties in the Gaza Strip. As reported by NBC News, Biden is concurrently working on creating a plan to ensure the safe evacuation of civilians from the war-torn region. The escape was to take place through a southern corridor leading to Egypt. In the phone call, Biden emphasized that the United States will be sensitive to any response suggesting that Israel is using excessive force, causing women and children to die. - We have never seen such cruelty in the history of the state. They're even worse than ISIS and we must treat them as such - Netanyahu said in the conversation. Like every nation in the world, Israel has the right to respond- and even has the duty to respond- to these brutal attacks - Biden asserted in his speech after the phone conversation.

Israeli airlines increase the number of flights. All this is to bring reservists back to the country. Reuters Agency reported, citing Israeli authorities and airlines El Al, Israir, and Arkia, that despite fears associated with staff shortages, the number of flights to Israel has noticeably increased. This move is a consequence of Monday's decision when Israel increased the number of reservists to 300,000, simultaneously appealing to residents of the Gaza Strip for evacuation. As said by the Spokesman for the United States Department of State Matt Miller, the United States was also to conduct talks with carriers to restore flights to Israel in order to assist residents who wish to safely leave the country.

Riots broke out in Paraguay's largest prison, Tacumbu. Prisoners set the building on fire and took 11 guards hostage. As reported by Reuters, citing the words of Interior Minister Enrique Riera, two hostages have already been released, and as a result of the clashes, two others were injured. About approximately 4,000 prisoners are housed in Tacumbu. Paraguay announced that after suppressing the riots, it will work on reforming the prison system.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that the conflict in the Middle East is the responsibility of the United States' policies, which he considers a failure. He also criticized these policies for not considering the needs of the Palestinians. - I think many people would agree with me that this is a prime example of the failure of United States' policies in the Middle East - Putin said during talks with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia Al-Sudani. Reuters, citing Putin's spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, reported that Moscow is in contact with the warring factions. Russia assured that it will strive to resolve the conflict, which may spread to other regions. However, it has not disclosed its tactics.

Finland has reported that "external actions" are to blame for the damage to the underwater gas pipeline and telecommunications cable connecting the country with Estonia. These were supposed to be intentional actions - the Reuters agency reported based on a statement from the Finnish government. - It is likely that the damage to both the gas pipeline and the communications cable is the result of external actions. The cause of the damage is not yet clear, the investigation is ongoing in cooperation between Finland and Estonia - said Finnish President Sauli Niinisto. According to the Finnish operator Gasgrid, the repair may take several months. Despite the incident, Finland's gas supply is expected to remain stable. This raw material constitutes five percent of energy supplies in Finland.
