TERRORIST INFILTRATION
Early today 2 terrorists carrying an axe attempted to cut the border fence and cross into Israel from Gaza. IDF troops arrived at the scene and shot and killed one of the terrorists. The other terrorist was wounded and managed to escape back into Gaza. 
 
Last night, terrorists from Gaza cut through the border fence and infiltrated into southern Israel, where they set fire to a container containing equipment used for the construction of an anti-tunnel barrier along the border. The terrorists escaped back across the border into Gaza. No injuries were reported but significant damage was caused. 
 
Also yesterday, an incendiary kite sent from Gaza started a fire that swept through the Shokeda Forest in southern Israel. PM Netanyahu called for implementing a plan that would allocate compensation taken from Palestinian Authority (PA) funds for Israeli communities bordering Gaza that suffer damage as a result of terror activity from Gaza. 
 
On Saturday night 4 rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza. Three out of the four rockets were intercepted by Iron Dome. The Israel Air Force responded to the rockets by attacking Hamas military targets in Gaza.

U.S. drone strike kills key Taliban leader

U.S. drone strike kills key Taliban leader

The Donald Trump administration and our military just took another fang out of the Taliban.
 
On Wednesday, Pakistani Taliban leader Mullah Fazlullah was reportedly killed by a drone strike.
 
The Strike
Fazlullah has been a high-valued target for some time.
 
In fact, he has been wrongfully reported dead on a prior occasion.
 
And while U.S. command did not specifically name Fazlullah, it did state a senior Taliban leader had been killed in the drone strike.
 
Pakistani officials, however, made the claim public that Fazlullah was the leader killed in the U.S. strike.
 
Continued Pressure
After a brief respite, the Trump administration has once again turned up the heat against the Taliban.
 
There is significant pressure on Trump to remove our troop presence from the Middle East.
 
However, that cannot and will not happen until the Taliban has been eradicated.
 
According to reports, the recent uptick in attacks is an effort to get the Afghan Taliban to come to a negotiating table to bring peace to the area.
 
This latest attack was specifically aimed at an area that is considered a stronghold for the Taliban for both Pakistani and Afghan terrorists.
 
Do You Support the Continued Effort to Destroy the Taliban?
Yes
No
Next
While it does appear that the Pakistani government supported this drone strike, that has not always been the case.
 
After several prior strikes, the Pakistani government claimed the United States was violating its sovereignty by conducting them.
 
But it looks like they need our help now — and we’re happy to give it, if it means eradicating terrorism.

Woman Allegedly Shouts Allahu Akbar, Attacks 2 Individuals Inside Supermarket
Woman shopping in French supermarket
By The Western Journal 
June 17, 2018 at 5:32am
A woman crying “Allahu akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic — injured two people with a box cutter Sunday at a supermarket in southern France before she was detained.
A customer in the store in the maritime town of La Seyne-sur-Mer was injured in the chest and hospitalized. A woman working the cash register was hurt less seriously, French radio station Europe 1 quoted the prosecutor in nearby Toulon as saying.
Prosecutor Bernard Marchal said the suspect may have mental health problems. She has not been identified. Police were searching her home.
“It’s apparently an isolated case involving a person with psychiatric issues,” the prosecutor told Le Monde newspaper quoted the prosecutor as saying. However, that does not exclude the possibility that the suspect was radicalized, Marchal added.
“There is a presumption of attempted murder and … of a crime with terrorist implications,” Marchal was quoted as saying.

Regional newspaper Nice-Matin, which first reported the 10:30 a.m. attack, quoted an unidentified witness as saying that people in the store stopped the woman from cutting anyone else.
A sense of edginess has been with France since a murderous series of killings in 2015 in the name of the Islamic State group.

Attacker tried to assassinate President of Zimbabwe

Attacker tried to assassinate President of Zimbabwe

Political assassination attempts seem to be the norm lately.
 
Zimbabwe Police confirmed a recent bombing was actually as assassination attempt against President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
 
Cowardly Attack
President Mnangagwa was attending a political rally when the attack took place.
 
When the blast went off, President Mnangagwa was quickly removed from the area.
 
He escaped without injury.
 
While President Mnangagwa was unharmed, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga and his wife both sustained injuries.
 
After the attack, authorities released the following statement:
 
“There has been an incident at Bulawayo (White City Stadium) where the president was addressing a rally… This is now a police issue, but the president is safe at Bulawayo State House.”
 
No Joking Matter
This is far from the first time President Mnangagwa’s life has been threatened.
 
In fact, the president often jokes about assassination attempts on him, as they have happened far too frequently.
 
The threats against President Mnangagwa started literally from the moment he came into power.
 
After taking over in November, he had to flee his own country in fear for his life.
 
Those threats will more than likely continue.
 
Do You See More Attempts Being Made Against President Mnangagwa?
Yes
No
President Mnangagwa has vowed to have a truly free election later this month, the first time that will have happened in more than three decades.
If successful, Zimbabwe may finally see sanctions imposed by the United States and other countries removed.

Nerve agents not found in samples from Syria's Douma – interim OPCW report

Nerve agents not found in samples from Syria's Douma – interim OPCW report
No traces of any nerve agents have been found at the site of a suspected chemical attack in the Syrian city of Douma, an interim report issued by the OPCW says. However, traces of chlorine were found at the site, it adds.
“Various chlorinated organic chemicals were found in samples” from two locations in the Damascus suburb of Douma, which were examined by specialists from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) an interim document says. 
At the same time, the report confirmed that "no organophosphorous nerve agents or their degradation products were detected in the environmental samples or in the plasma samples taken from alleged casualties."
 
READ MORE: Containers with chlorine from Germany, smoke bombs from UK's Salisbury found in E. Ghouta – Moscow
The OPCW sent a fact-finding mission to Douma in April, around a week after the alleged incident. During the same month, Russia said that chlorine containers from Germany, which apparently belonged to militants, were found in the liberated parts of Douma.
Later, the Russian military found an entire laboratory operated by militants in central Douma, which was capable of producing chemical weapons. The lab had some sophisticated equipment, including an industrial chemical reactor, which was apparently used by the militants to create toxic agents. The footage, taken by Russian journalists inside the facility, also showed vast stockpiles of various chemicals, some of which were produced in Germany, as well as empty mortar shells that could be filled with poisonous substances.
The purported chemical incident in Douma allegedly took place on April 7. A week later, Washington and its allies launched a massive retaliatory missile strike against Syria, without even waiting for the OPCW to start its investigation of the incident.

Amesbury poisoning: Couple 'handled contaminated item'
5 July 2018

The couple, Dawn Sturgess and Charlie Rowley, fell ill on Saturday
The couple poisoned by Novichok were exposed to the substance after handling a contaminated item, police say.
 
Charlie Rowley, 45, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, collapsed at a flat in Amesbury, Wiltshire, on Saturday and remain critically ill.
 
Home Secretary Sajid Javid said the nerve agent was the same as that used on ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in March.
 
Russia said Theresa May's government was subjecting them "to hell".
 
Mr Javid accused Russia of using Britain as a "dumping ground for poison" after the second incident involving the nerve agent.
 
 
Media captionFootage shows Ms Sturgess in Salisbury days before her collapse
But a Russian Embassy spokesman said all allegations of the country's involvement were "merely speculative".
 
The Met said there were around 100 detectives from the Counter Terrorism Network working alongside Wiltshire Police on the "major incident".
 
Salisbury District Hospital's chief executive Cara Charles-Barks said the couple are "extremely unwell" and remain in a critical condition.

Russian spy: What happened to the Skripals?
BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera said that because the highest concentration of Novichok was found on the couple's hands, police believe the item they handled could be a container or receptacle that was used to carry the nerve agent.
 
He said the most likely hypothesis was the Novichok was left over from an item discarded after the attack on the Skripals.
 
Toxicologist Prof Alastair Hay said it would be possible for Novichok to still be dangerous four months after first use.
 
Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said there was nothing in the couple's background to suggest the pair had been targeted.
 
The BBC's home affairs correspondent June Kelly said it has been suggested the item "could be a vial or syringe because of the couple's lifestyle".
 
Chemical weapons expert Richard Guthrie said it was possible that the couple came across the Novichok after it had been disposed of "in a haphazard way".
 
Debbie Stark, south west deputy director from Public Health England said the risk to the public of further poisoning incidents "remains low".
 
Police have set up a helpline for anyone who needs further advice: 0800 092 0410 or 0207 158 0124.
 
 
Media captionSajid Javid calls on Russia to explain "exactly what has gone on" following Amesbury incident
In a statement to MPs, Mr Javid said: "It is now time that the Russian state comes forward and explains exactly what has gone on."
 
He said the "strong working assumption" was that the couple came into contact with Novichok in a location which had not been cleaned up following the Skripal poisoning in nearby Salisbury.
 
"It is completely unacceptable for our people to be either deliberate or accidental targets, or for our streets, our parks, our towns, to be dumping grounds for poison," he added.
 
He said he could not rule out the possibility that the Novichok found in Amesbury was from the same batch used in the Salisbury attack and that scientists would be "looking into that".
 
'Muddy the waters'
Earlier, Mrs May said it was "deeply disturbing" to see two more people exposed to Novichok in the UK, and the police would leave "no stone unturned in their investigation".
 
Shadow home secretary Diane Abbott said British streets must not be allowed to become "killing fields for state actors".
 
But the spokesman for the Russian Embassy said the government had yet to contact them about the incident
 
He added: "Instead of genuine co-operation, London is doing everything possible to muddy the waters, to confuse and frighten its own citizens.
 
"One can only guess what the reasons behind such a line of behaviour are."

A man, reportedly wearing an explosive belt, has blown himself up at a football field in Verviers, Belgium, the local prosecutor’s office reported. The man was the only victim.
The man detonated explosives on his person between 8:30am and 9am on Tuesday, Belgian outlet RTL info reported, citing the prosecutor’s office. Police do not know his identity, nor have they established a motive for the apparent suicide bombing.
Nearby streets have been closed to traffic, and a bomb disposal crew are at the scene.

The man was around 50 years old, and walked to the center circle of the field before blowing himself up, according to one witness report.
Mayor Hasan Aydin has downplayed speculation that the man wanted to commit a terrorist act. “Suicide seems plausible,” he told Sudinfo.be. “If he had wanted to do more damage, he would certainly have been in a place in town where there were more people.”

Heartbreaking: Police officer allegedly shot by illegal immigrant dies
July 31, 2018 by Jerry McCormick
Heartbreaking: Police officer allegedly shot by illegal immigrant dies
Tomás Del Coro / CCL
An American hero has lost his life at the hands of yet another undocumented immigrant.
 
Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller’s death was announced Saturday afternoon by the Fort Meyers Police Department.
 
The Shooting
Last Saturday, Officer Jobbers-Miller was called to a local gas station to respond to a call over a stolen cell phone.
 
Officer Jobbers-Miller caught up with the suspect, Wisner Desmaret, a 29-year-old undocumented immigrant from Haiti, lying face down on the street.
 
Desmaret can be heard on the video captured on Jobbers-Miller’s body cam first telling the officer to not shoot him, then to “shoot me while I’m not looking.”
 
Desmaret was assured he was not going to be shot and asked to stand up.
 
At this time, the men who had their cell phone stolen arrived in a car.
 
The officers went over to talk to the men when Desmaret stood up and attempted to get into the car.
 
He then attempted to flee the scene on foot and was pursued by Officer Jobbers-Miller.
 
Just as the officer was catching up to the suspect, Desmaret turned around with his hands down, palms up, appearing to surrender.
 
He then lunged at the officer, knocking him off balance.
 
With the officer down on the ground, Desmaret reached for the officer’s gun, removed it from his holster, and shot Officer Jobbers-Miller in the head.
 
Desmaret then fled the scene but was ultimately taken down by another officer when Desmaret reportedly raised the gun to fire on him.
 
Never Turned Over
Sadly, this is yet another case where the alleged suspect should have never been in the country.
 
Do you support ICE?
Yes
No
Next
Desmaret had been arrested multiple times over the past few years and ICE had even placed holds on him twice, in 2008 and 2010.
 
Unfortunately, Desmaret remained on the streets, ultimately taking the life of Officer Jobbers-Miller.

A car has smashed into a security barrier outside the Houses of Parliament in London, injuring several people. Police have arrested a man and cordoned off the area.
Metropolitan Police say that several pedestrians were injured when a vehicle hit barriers outside London’s Parliament around 8am local time on Monday. The driver was arrested at the scene.
Parliament Square was shut down, according to British media, and a large number of police cars descended on the site. Westminster tube station has been closed.
The authorities have not stated whether the incident was terrorism-related or not. A police spokeswoman said that they are “still trying to piece it together,” according to Reuters.

Feign outrage, act surprised, accuse Russia: How Sweden reacts every time after mass car firebombing

Feign outrage, act surprised, accuse Russia: How Sweden reacts every time after mass car firebombing
/ Twitter / Courtesy: @Astor99
Over 1,800 cars have been set on fire in Sweden since January, and a record was set when over 100 were torched within hours of each other this week. After each incident, the same pantomime plays out, as if for the first time.
In this spectacle every actor, from righteous government politicians to confused police officers to concerned academics has their own part, played always with a straight face. While the latest incident provides a good case study, these steps can be transposed from Sweden to almost any Western European country, from a car burning to a mass riot to a gang rape.
 
Here is how the drill goes.
Bombastic outrage from ruling centrist politicians
The more routine something becomes, the more indignant the language deployed by the government to convince the people it still cares.
 
Stefan Lofven visits Gothenburg to inspect the arson site. / AFP
Socialist Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who is facing an election next month, outdid himself this time.
 
READ MORE: Swedish PM ‘pissed off’ as masked youths set scores of cars on fire across country (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
 
“I am angry about this, for real,” the Prime Minister assured the audience during a radio interview. “I ask the perpetrators, What the hell are you doing?” he howled, as if he was personally interrogating them in the basement of his Stockholm palace.
 
Lofven appears to be living quite a tempestuous existence. In the past two years alone he felt “a great anger” over reports of Afghan refugees attacking women at music festivals, “outraged” about an attack on a synagogue in Gothenburg, and “furious” about sharia patrols on Swedish streets.
 
If only there was a productive outlet for this man’s emotions.
 
Media reports appear suddenly very confused about what is happening, or why
Usually so clear and concise, news articles become detective mysteries to be pieced together by the reader.
 
There is talk of shadowy hooded figures, criminologists discussing that most such attacks happen in August before school starts (and?) or that car burning is a form of insurance fraud (this could well be true, but somehow one doubts that anyone is going to be lodging 100 simultaneous claims next week) that the mass arson was organized on social media, which is neither here nor there.
 
 
A representative locally-written New York Times article claims that the “phenomenon has stymied the police and criminologists” and later that it has “left police officers scratching their heads as they struggle to find the root cause of the fires.”
 
Like many others, the article believes that the torchings happen in high-crime areas with a significant proportion of immigrants is a coincidental irrelevance, even if it crops up again and again, and is inevitably the first comment below articles on the subject (albeit not in Swedish media, which doesn’t tend to allow comment sections).
 
Wait, wait, we’ve solved it, it’s the Russians
From the same NYT article. 
 
“Residents cite disparate theories to explain the attacks, including blaming them on Russians trying to foment unrest before the election.”
 
Not only is it interesting that an article that has studiously avoided conclusions might suddenly get so specific, but some might find it hard to believe that among the “disparate theories” propounded by locals, sneaky Russian arsonists came out top. Still, as always, a reassuring use of anonymous and non-specific sources from that publication.
 
Or maybe it wasn’t the Russians, it was a false flag from the anti-migrant nativists. 
 
“I would not be surprised if far right extremists were involved in some way,” tweeted Daniel Riazat, a Left Party MP, apropos of nothing.
 
Perhaps best combine the two. Is Russia firebombing cars to help the anti-EU Sweden Democrats? 
 
After all, the head of the Swedish intelligence called Russia “the biggest threat to our security,” earlier this year, looking to meddle in the election.
 
On the other hand, hundreds of burning cars are not a threat to national security, or political stability (perhaps not having them set on fire would be one way of taming those unruly nativists).
 
Hold on, we’ve caught them! It’s not the Russians, so probably not worth the hoopla
To everyone’s astonishment after all the next-level theorizing, the suspects, arrested on Wednesday, turned out to be three male acquain
