Tunisia says it will raise security around tourist sites following the recent terror attack on a beach resort there. Meanwhile, a Spanish lawmaker who was onboard a Gaza aid boat plans to sue Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC). 

Tunisia's government says it will start arming its tourism police. This comes after a terrorist, who disguised himself as a tourist, shot and killed holidaymakers on a Tunisian beach. The gunman was a Tunisian student. He killed 38 people, most of whom were British. He reportedly yelled to locals saying, "Stay away. I didn't come for you." Other terror attacks on the same day involved a man beheading his boss and sending photos to members of ISIL; whilst another was an ISIL terror attack on a Shia mosque in Kuwait, killing 26 worshipers. 

Meanwhile in Europe, there is growing condemnation of Israel's refusal to allow peaceful aid flotillas to help the starving population in the Gaza Strip, which has been under Israel's illegal siege since 2007. The recent flotilla aimed to protest against Israel's abuse of Palestinians as well as the blockade. Meanwhile, Palestinians face another threat, but this time from ISIL. A new ISIL video surfaces which issues a warning to the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas.
