A classified CIA report shows the agency could find no evidence to support Israel’s decision to label six prominent Palestinian NGOs as “terrorist organizations.”

Last October, Israel claimed that the organizations were front groups of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a left-wing political party with a paramilitary branch.

Earlier this year, Israel passed on intelligence about the designation to the US, but a CIA intelligence review of the material found no evidence to support the claim, according to two sources familiar with the investigation. The CIA report “does not say the groups are guilty of anything,” a source said.

  • Terror indications ‘unfounded’. Numerous states, including allies of Israel, have rejected the designation of terror as groundless. The United States has not publicly criticized or questioned it, but neither has it placed the groups under a US terror designation.

Stand of the day: Regular exercise can reduce Covid risks

Regular exercise lowers the risk of developing Covid-19 or becoming seriously ill with the disease, with about 20 minutes a day providing the greatest benefit, a global analysis of data suggests. The analysis of the available evidence, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, says that a weekly total of 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity appears to provide the best protection.

The link between regular exercise and the severity of Covid-19 is poorly understood, but likely has to do with metabolic and environmental factors, the researchers say. Overall, those who incorporated regular exercise into their weekly routine had an 11% lower risk of infection with Sars-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid. They also had a 36% lower risk of hospitalization, a 44% lower risk of severe Covid-19 illness, and a 43% lower risk of death from Covid-19 than their physically inactive peers.

Holidaying in Spain at age 16, Emma Gannon, the author and host of the creative career podcast Ctrl Alt Delete writes: “I got so sick of sangria that, say, I never again had anything ‘with bits in it’. Then college came, and those three years passed in a haze of white wine, cheap trebles, bright blue shots, the Snakebite brew of lager, cider, and blackcurrant.

‘Constant low-pitched humming headaches and empty wine bottles rattling under the bed. When you entered the world of work, it was after-work drinks!!!, where you learned all the juicy stuff about your colleagues and your boss. I also drank my way through all those nights without ever stopping to ask: is there an option? not to do this?”
