In today’s episode of the Daily Round-up we look at the killing of 2 civilians in yet another unprovoked Israeli missile attack on Syria; the announcement by the U.S. defense department of the closure of Red Hill months after the fuel storage facility poisoned the water supply in Hawai’i; a report by the UN on civilian casualties in Afghanistan since August, 2021 amid a deepening economic crisis; and a report on the increasing threat of a mass “dieback” of trees  in the Amazon, and its impact on the climate and biodiversity, as the rainforest loses its ability to recover from droughts, wildfires, and deforestation.
