Israeli forces kill 2 Palestinians in West Bank in shoot out

Published

on

Israeli forces exchanged fire with Palestinians barricaded in a house in the West Bank on Sunday, killing two, according to Israeli police and the local rescue service.

Israeli authorities said armed Palestinians were killed during the hours-long predawn clash in the city of Nablus, without specifying the exact amount.

Militant group Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said the two Palestinians killed at the house were its members.

No Israeli forces were wounded, police said.

The two men killed during the clash were identified as Aboud Sobh, 29, and Muhammad Al-Azizi, 22, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent, a humanitarian organization.

Six others were wounded, the Palestinian Health Ministry said.

A neighbor recalled hearing gunshots from inside the house before the Israelis opened fire at the house.

“They were calling the name of one person, asking him to surrender,” said Naser Estitya, 60.

Part of the wall on the top floor had been heavily damaged, pictures from the scene revealed.

“Another crime committed by the occupation forces in the old city of #Nablus, where martyrs have fallen and many wounded,” Hussein al-Sheikh, a senior Palestinian official, said in a tweet. “We strongly condemn this crime, and we hold the occupation [responsible] for its repercussions.”

Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said the suspects were wanted for a series of shootings.

“We won’t sit and wait for Israeli citizens to be harmed,” he said during a meeting of his Cabinet. “We will go out and harm the terrorists in their homes.”

A rep for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the violence, declaring it was a result of Israel’s continued occupation of areas Palestinians want to be part of an independent state.

“The region will remain in a cycle of violence until the occupation is ended and a just peace achieved,” said the spokesperson, Nabil Abu Rdeneh,

The military said a violent protest broke out as troops were operating in Nablus, as protesters hurled explosive devices at soldiers and opened fire at them. The soldiers returned fire, the military said.

The military said it also operated in a separate area of the West Bank, where separate exchange of shots took place.

Israeli forces have in recent months been conducting frequent raids in the occupied West Bank, in what they have said in an attempt to put an end to a series of street attacks by Palestinians on Israelis.

The IDF has faced armed resistance during some of those operations, several of which have turned deadly.

The Palestinian attacks on Israelis earlier this year killed 19, while more than 60 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces since the beginning of 2022, according to an official Palestinian tally.

Many Palestinians want the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem — territories Israel captured during the Six-Day War in 1967 — for their own state.

US-led peace talks aimed at establishing a Palestinian state in those areas broke down in 2014, and have not since been resuscitated.

Published

on

Actress Anne Heche, known for her roles in such films as Donnie Brasco, Volcano and I Know What You Did Last Summer, was involved in a fiery car crash in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles on Friday.

According to TMZ, Heche was driving a blue Mini Cooper and had first crashed into the garage of an apartment complex. Residents of the apartment complex tried to get her out of the vehicle but she backed up and sped off.

Footage of Heche speeding down the streets of her neighborhood had been obtained by TMZ as well as her initial encounter at the apartment complex.

In the first clip, you can hear her car crash towards the end. It has been reported that the actress crashed into someone’s home, causing her vehicle and the house to erupt into flames. Heche suffered severe burns and was resisting being taken away in a stretcher. You can also view footage of this via the TMZ article.

It has not been confirmed whether alcohol has been involved in the incident since her condition prevents doctors from performing any tests to determine if she was driving under the influence. She is currently intubated in the hospital but expected to live.

These are the vulgar license-plate requests the DMV has rejected

Published

on

Stay CL4SSY, New York!

The state Department of Motor Vehicles nixed 3,752 requests for vanity license plates in the last three years because it deemed them too raunchy, radical or simply ridiculous.

New York’s personalized plates go for $60 initially, and then $31.25 annually for renewal. You can get any plate as long as no one else has it and it’s not offensive.

Odds are a request for a plate that marks a wedding anniversary or shows your allegiance to a team — like METS86 — will pass muster with the DMV gatekeepers.

Vulgarity won’t get you to first base.

So plates with the phrase LFGM — the acronym for Pete Alonso’s “Let’s F–king Go Mets” rallying cry — did not make the cut.

And you won’t see anyone driving around with the custom plates MILFDAD, AS5M4N and WLHUNG.

Crude meanings such as “MILFDAD” are unacceptable by the DMV.

The DMV also put NICEBUNS, FATFANNY, GOTAPOOP and BENDOVER in the rear-view mirror.

One player unsuccessfully tried to score the plate YESDADDY, to no avail.

The DMV also shot down such dark requests as DEADGIRL, GENOC1DE, S8TAN, DETONATE and MURDERM3.

Getting political is a dead end too — FJOEBIDN, FDTRUMP and CNNLIES were nixed.

LUDEDUDE, NARCO, GOT METH and BLUNT also went up in smoke.

Staten Island attorney Bill Dertinger said his blue 1995 Jaguar SJS was tagged with ESQLTD after his company and his 2014 Porsche had the plate GHOSTGTS because the sleek sportscar was white.

“The plates can make you stand out — which can be a curse or a blessing,” the 54-year-old Dertinger said. “Make sure you don’t cut anybody off.”

There must be a New York Jets fan playing referee at the DMV because a request for the seemingly innocent plate GASE was sidelined. Ex-Jets head coach Adam Gase had an offensive 9-23 win-loss record during his forgettable two-year tenure.

The DMV would not reveal who gives the final yea or nay.

“The DMV reviews all custom license plate requests and works hard to ensure that any combinations that may be considered objectionable are rejected,” said agency spokesman Tim O’Brien.

“GLOCKS” referring to guns is not accepted by the DMV.

He said guidelines on what plate combinations are restricted can be found on the DMV website: https://dmv.ny.gov/learn-about-personalized-plates. Approximately 50,000 personalized and custom plates are sold per year, O’Brien said.
