Post navigation On July 3, 1913, the Earth experienced its highest recorded temperature at a site in Death Valley, California. The temperature hit a sweltering 134°F which is well above the normal 100°F expected of a hot day in the desert. This was a one-time weather anomaly that was held for over a century as the world’s hottest day ever recorded. After a series of attacks by Israeli forces against the Palestinian refugee camp in Jenin, the consequences of their activity have become apparent. The United Nations has released reports of destruction in the camp due to the aerial bombings and bulldozing done by the Israeli forces, leaving homes destroyed, civilians buried in rubble and hundreds of families displaced. As tensions continue to heighten in the region, the aftereffects of this conflict in Jenin remain a major focus of humanitarian concern.
