Quick Glance: Nikki Haley's Decision to Vote for Trump in 2024 Election
  • Former Republican presidential contender Nikki Haley announced her intention to vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming November election, despite her prolonged criticisms of her former rival.

  • Despite withdrawing from the race for the Republican presidential nomination in March, Haley's name continues to appear on the ballot, garnering over 10% of the vote in state primaries, even without active campaigning.

  • Haley's unwavering stance in her criticisms of Trump positioned her as the figurehead of the diminishing anti-Trump faction within the Republican Party, even without a serious challenge for the nomination.

Quick Glance: London Court Rules in Favor of Assange's Appeal Against US Extradition
  • A London court ruled on Monday that Julian Assange can challenge the extradition to the United States on espionage charges.

  • Assange's legal team contended that the assurances provided by the U.S. regarding press freedoms if he were extradited were insufficient.

  • The U.S. government maintains that Assange's actions exceeded journalistic norms by attempting to procure and publish classified government documents indiscriminately.

  • President Biden indicated last month his consideration of Australia's request to end the case and allow Assange to return to his native country.

Quick Glance: World Court Urges Israel to Cease Rafah Military Offensive
  • Judges at the highest UN court observed a deterioration in the situation in Gaza since their previous directive for Israel to promptly address the humanitarian crisis. Furthermore, they mandated Israel to cease the military offensive in Rafah.

  • President of the court, Nawaf Salam, highlighted that the provisional measures ordered by the International Court of Justice in March were inadequate in addressing the current situation in the enclave.

  • A ruling unfavorable to Israel could increase diplomatic pressure on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's administration.

  • Israel has consistently rejected the genocide allegations in this case, asserting in court that its actions in Gaza are defensive measures aimed at Hamas militants who launched an attack on Israel on October 7.
