US conducts airstrikes against Iraq, Syria after contractor killed, American troops injured in rocket attack

The U.S. military carried out airstrikes in Iraq and Syria on Sunday — days after a U.S. defense contractor was killed at a military compound in a rocket attack.

Military jet fighters conducted “precision defensive strikes” against five sites of Kataeb Hezbollah, an Iran-backed Iraqi militia, Jonathan Hoffman, a spokesperson for the Pentagon told Fox News. Two defense officials added that Air Force F-15 jet fighters carried out the strikes.

U.S. officials have blamed the militia for a rocket barrage Friday that killed a U.S. defense contractor, wounded four U.S. troops and two members of the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) near Kirkuk, in northern Iraq.

Military forces said the attackers fired more than 30 rockets in Friday’s assault — the 11th rocket attack on U.S. and Iraqi forces since late October, according to a U.S. defense official.

Five locations — including three Kataeb Hezbollah areas in Iraq and two in Syria — were targeted, Hoffman said in a statement.

He said the U.S. strikes will weaken the group’s ability to carry out future attacks on Americans and their Iraqi government allies.

Earlier this month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for two separate rocket attacks on the Baghdad International Airport, on Dec. 9 and 11, where U.S. and Iraqi forces are located on the other side of the commercial airport.

Pompeo said if any Americans were harmed in the future, it would “be answered with a decisive U.S. response.”

Shooting At Texas Church Leaves 3 People Dead, Including Gunman

Westlake Legal Group 5e08efa8250000101198f552 Shooting At Texas Church Leaves 3 People Dead, Including Gunman

A gunman killed two people inside of a church near Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday, shooting one of them before being fatally shot by an armed churchgoer, authorities said.

People were gathered inside West Freeway Church of Christ in White Settlement, a city of about 16,000, when the gunman entered just before 11 a.m. and began to open fire, White Settlement Police Chief J.P. Bevering said at a press conference on Sunday afternoon.

The shooter died at the scene while the second fatality, only described as a parishioner, died en route to a hospital. A third victim died in the hospital Sunday evening, Bevering said.

“Unfortunately this country has seen so many of these that we’ve gotten used to it at this point and it’s tragic,” Jeoff Williams, a Texas Department of Public Safety regional director, said at the press conference.

Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn, a Republican, praised the armed parishioners who stood up and fought back.

“Today evil walked boldly among us but let me remind you, good people raised up and stopped it before it got worse,” Waybourn said at the presser.

In a statement posted to Twitter, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott described the incident as an “evil act of violence.”

“Places of worship are meant to be sacred, and I am grateful for the church members who acted quickly to take down the shooter and help prevent further loss of life,” he said.

A witness, speaking to CBS 11 News, said the gunman walked up to a server during communion and opened fire with a shotgun.

A since-removed livestream of the morning church service reportedly captured the deadly attack, according to local station WFAA.

The gunman, who was described as wearing a large coat, reportedly stood up during the service and then pulled out what appeared to be a rifle or a shotgun. The shooter appeared to fire twice before someone shot back at them.

A spokesperson for the White Settlement Police Department, which the Fort Worth Police Department said is primarily handling the case, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

“Today evil walked boldly among us but let me remind you, good people raised up and stopped it before it got worse,” Waybourn said at the presser.

Antonio Brown ‘blew away’ Saints in workout as team awaits for clarity regarding his status: report

Westlake Legal Group Antonio-Brown1 Antonio Brown 'blew away' Saints in workout as team awaits for clarity regarding his status: report Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/nfl/new-orleans-saints fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/person/antonio-brown fox news fnc/sports fnc article 25ff2e58-a9da-501c-ba2e-e586b65f4e1a

Antonio Brown reportedly “blew away” the New Orleans Saints during his workout and the team would like to sign the free-agent wide receiver but are waiting to see if the NFL will punish him over the sexual assault and rape allegations against him.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter provided the update on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.”

ANTONIO BROWN WORKS OUT FOR NEW ORLEANS SAINTS AHEAD OF PLAYOFFS, TEAM DOING ‘DUE DILIGENCE’: REPORT

“The Saints worked out Antonio Brown on Friday, and he caught every single thing that was thrown to him. He blew away the Saints in the workout, we knew he would,” Schefter said.

“The issue is the NFL. The Saints would like to sign Antonio Brown, but they’re waiting for the NFL to issue a ruling, and there’s been no clarity from the NFL as to when the league might make a ruling on the sexual assault allegations that were levied against Antonio Brown in the NFL’s active investigation.

“So as long as the investigation is ongoing, the Saints can’t do anything, but they would be interested in signing him, if only he were free.”

ANTONIO BROWN SLAMS HIS OWN FATHER AFTER RECEIVING CRITICISM OVER HANDLING NFL’S PRESSURE

According to Schefter on Friday, the Saints were doing their “due diligence” ahead of the playoffs.

Brown previously played for the Pittsburgh Steelers before being traded to the Oakland Raiders in the off-season. He failed to play a regular-season snap, however, and was released following a turbulent offseason.

He was then picked up by the New England Patriots for 11 days before he was again released in the wake of allegations that he sexually assaulted and raped his former trainer and sent intimidating text messages to another woman who had also accused him of sexual misconduct.

ANTONIO BROWN REPORTEDLY FACING LENGTHY SUSPENSION AS WIDE RECEIVER PROMOTES RAP ALBUM ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Brown has since been an outspoken critic of the NFL and his former organizations. He has denied the allegations against him and most recently filed a lawsuit against his ex-girlfriend and mother of his three children, claiming she is refusing to leave his home despite being served with an eviction notice.

The Saints have a shot at the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs this season, which would mean a first-round bye, although both the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers would have to lose this weekend. If all three teams win this weekend, the Saints would be the No. 3 seed, which means they would host a wild card game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Huckabee agrees with Gabbard’s prediction that impeachment will ‘embolden’ Trump

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-12-29-at-12.14.53-PM Huckabee agrees with Gabbard's prediction that impeachment will ‘embolden’ Trump Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 4e929c84-a20d-58c1-b646-733473102681

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Sunday that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI., was correct in saying that the House Democrat-led impeachment push would embolden President Trump supporters.

“She’s absolutely right,” Huckabee told “Fox & Friends.” “What she said was 100 percent right. This impeachment nonsense which she did not vote for. She voted ‘present’ and I thought that probably really stirred them up.”

TRUMP HAS ‘RESPECT’ FOR TULSI GABBARD VOTING ‘PRESENT’ ON IMPEACHMENT

“This is only going to not just embolden Donald Trump but, more importantly, I can guarantee it has emboldened his supporters, including me,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee’s comments came after Tusli told ABC News in a one-on-one interview, “I think impeachment, unfortunately, will only further embolden Donald Trump, increase his support and the likelihood that he’ll have a better shot at getting elected while also seeing the likelihood that the House will lose a lot of seats to Republicans.”

Trump lauded Gabbard for voting “present” on the two articles of impeachment approved two weeks in the Democratic-controlled House.

“I give her respect. She didn’t vote the other day. I give her a lot of respect. Because she knew it was wrong. She took a pass,” Trump said during a speech last Saturday to the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Gabbard, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, said she voted against impeachment because it did not have bipartisan support.

Huckabee said Gabbard appeared on his television show recently and credited her for being independent from the House Democrats’ impeachment push.

“She’s one of the smartest people, maybe the smartest one on the stage and the Democrats can’t stand her because she’s not a sheep,” Huckabee said.

Taliban Council Agrees To Cease-Fire In Afghanistan

Westlake Legal Group 5e08def4240000c31c5a47bf Taliban Council Agrees To Cease-Fire In Afghanistan

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The Taliban said Sunday they have agreed to a temporary cease-fire nationwide. It provides a window during which a peace agreement with the United States could be signed.

A peace deal would allow Washington to bring home its troops from Afghanistan and end its 18-year military engagement there, America’s longest. The U.S. wants any deal to include a promise from the Taliban that Afghanistan would not used as a base by terrorist groups. The U.S. currently has an estimated 12,000 troops in Afghanistan.

The Taliban chief must approve the agreement but that is expected. The duration of the cease-fire was not specified but it is being suggested it would last for 10 days.

our members of the Taliban negotiating team met for a week with the ruling council before they agreed on the brief cease fire. The negotiating team returned on Sunday to Qatar where they maintain their political offic

The Taliban officials familiar with the negotiations spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media.

A key pillar of the agreement, which the U.S. and Taliban have been hammering out for more than a year, is direct negotiations between Afghans on both sides of the conflict.

Those intra-Afghan negotiations are expected to be held within two weeks of the signing of a U.S.-Taliban peace deal. They will likely decide what a post-war Afghanistan will look like, and what role the Taliban will play. The negotiations would cover a wide range of subjects, such as the rights of women, free speech and the fate of the the tens of thousands of Taliban fighters, as well as the heavily armed militias belonging to Afghanistan’s warlords who have amassed wealth and power since the Taliban’s ouster.

The temporary cease-fire had been proposed by U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad during the last round of talks.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. AP’s previous story is below.

A Taliban attack in northern Afghanistan killed at least 17 local militiamen, an Afghan official said Sunday.

The attack apparently targeted a local militia commander who escaped unharmed, said Jawad Hajri, a spokesman for the governor of Takhar province, where the attack took place late Saturday.

Local Afghan militias commonly operate in remote areas, and are under the command of either the defense or interior ministries.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack came even as Taliban officials have told The Associated Press that a temporary nationwide cease-fire may be in the works.

The Taliban have previously refused all offers of a ceasefire by the Afghan government, except for a three-day truce in June 2018 over the Eid al-Fitr holiday.

The current cease-fire proposal would last a week to 10 days. During that time, a peace deal with the United States would then be signed, the Taliban officials said. Talks between Afghans on both sides of the conflict would follow to decide on the shape of a post-war Afghanistan.

The Taliban shura, or ruling council, is currently debating whether to accept the U.S. cease-fire proposal, the Taliban officials said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media, but were familiar with the ongoing U.S.-Taliban negotiations.

On Monday, an American soldier was killed in combat in the northern Kunduz province. The Taliban claimed they were behind a fatal roadside bombing that targeted American and Afghan forces in Kunduz.

The following day, a Taliban attack on a checkpoint killed at least seven Afghan army soldiers in the northern Balkh province.

Another six Afghan troops were killed in the same province Thursday in an attack on an army base. At least 10 Afghan soldiers were killed Friday in a complex attack on a checkpoint in the southern Helmand province.

The Taliban frequently target Afghan and U.S. forces, as well as government officials. But scores of Afghan civilians are also killed in the crossfire or by roadside bombs planted by militants.

Winter storm bringing ‘significant’ travel hazards after 470 crashes reported in Minnesota

An intensifying winter storm is forecast to wallop the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest through Monday, creating treacherous travel conditions across the region a day after freezing rain led to hundreds of crashes across Minnesota.

The National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said the winter storm will bring heavy and blowing snow with blizzard conditions at times from northern Nebraska to northern Minnesota, with storm totals in excess of a foot possible in parts of the Dakotas and northwest Minnesota.

“The northern side of this is where we do have some snow. We also have some of the rain,” Fox News Chief Meteorologist Rick Reichmuth said on “Fox & Friends.” “It’s rain right now in Minneapolis, that will transition back to snow. It’s definitely rain in Chicago, throughout all of Wisconsin. Back side of this, some of those spots may be up to six to 12 inches of snow by the time this is all done.”

POLAR VORTEX, BOMB CYCLONE, SLEET: HERE’S WHAT THOSE WINTER WEATHER TERMS MEAN

The axis of the heaviest snow will shift to northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan by Monday, where six to 12 inches of snow is likely to bring “significant travel hazards” as areas of freezing rain also develop into the Northeast.

“A major ice storm is becoming more likely across northern New York and into central New England as warm air advection and moisture flux from the Atlantic Ocean overrides a shallow layer of sub-freezing temperatures near the surface,” according to forecasters. “The potential exists for a quarter to half an inch of ice accretion, and this will likely cause havoc for travelers and disrupt electrical service.”

Ice storm warnings have been posted to areas near Albany, N.Y. and in western Massachusetts and parts of Connecticut. Winter storm warnings have been issued further north, where “heavy mixed precipitation” is expected.

The storm system caused freezing rain across southern Minnesota on Saturday, causing 470 crashes across the region, the Minnesota State Patrol told FOX9.

Of the 470 crashes reported on Saturday, 43 involved injuries, and two were fatal.

In Stearns County, a fatal crash was reported around 4:30 a.m. in Brockway Township when a vehicle went off the road and crash into trees. Investigators told FOX9 the victim was thrown from the vehicle and died.

The second fatal crash happened around 6:30 a.m. on Interstate 35E when an 82-year-old man died after his vehicle went off the highway and rolled over. Minnesota State Patrol told FOX9 the man was not wearing a seatbelt during the crash.

The freezing rain caused another dramatic scene in the Twin Cities on Saturday when a school bus sliding sideways “downhill” down a roadway. No injuries were reported in that incident, according to FOX9.

Several roads were temporarily closed Saturday morning as authorities responded to the numerous crashes and the Minnesota Department of Transportation issued a no travel advisory until 12:30 p.m. due to the conditions.

Ahead of the storm system and cold front, temperatures will be well above normal for the eastern U.S. on Sunday into Monday before cooler air arrives, with record-high temperatures possible in some locations. A few severe thunderstorms could develop across the South ahead of the cold front.

“A lot of very heavy rain showers that are here across parts of the South, some of them potentially severe and as these storms move to the East throughout the day today, we’ll see a little bit of potential wind damage,” Reichmuth said on “Fox & Friends.”
