France prepares for ‘very high terrorist threat’ on NYE due to Israel-Hamas conflict

French law enforcement and intelligence agencies are tightening security all across the country ahead of New Year’s Eve.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin warned Friday of a “very high terrorist threat” caused by “what is happening in Israel and Palestine.”

A tourist was killed earlier this month in a knife attack near the Eiffel Tower, heightening concerns about public safety in Paris.

A New Year’s Eve celebration is expected to draw thousands as the city prepares to host the 2024 Olympics. Dancing, fireworks, and live entertainment is expected at the year-end celebration.

Police will be using patrol drones as part of their security infrastructure, while approximately 5,000 soldiers will be mobilized.

Biden bypasses Congress for second emergency weapons sale to Israel

The Biden administration bypassed Congress for a second time to provide emergency weapons to Israeli Defense Forces in Gaza.

Citing the “urgency of Israel’s defensive needs,” the State Department approved approximately $147.5 million in weapons and equipment sales to Israel on Friday.

“Given the urgency of Israel’s defensive needs, the secretary notified Congress that he had exercised his delegated authority to determine an emergency existed necessitating the immediate approval of the transfer,” the department said.

The designation as an emergency sale allows the administration to bypass normal Congressional review procedures. The department made a similar decision on Dec. 9.

“The United States is committed to the security of Israel, and it is vital to U.S. national interests to ensure Israel is able to defend itself against the threats it faces,” it said.
