Riots outside Jerusalem holy site injure several people including police, reports say

Islamic Jihad and the militant group Hamas threatened increased violence on Sunday after a day of riots at a major Jerusalem holy site left at least four Israeli police officers and several Muslim and Jewish people injured, according to reports.

Palestinian medics said at least 14 people were wounded, one seriously, in the skirmishes with police at the site, which Muslims refer to as the Al-Aqsa mosque compound and Jews refer to as the Temple Mount.

Police said at least four officers were wounded and witnesses said at least two people were arrested, in the worst bout of fighting at the contested holy site in months.

Israeli police stormed the site, firing stun grenades and clouds of tear gas swirled as crowds of Muslims protested the gathering of Jewish people at the entrance of the site, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Many Jews wanted to go in to mark Tisha Be’av (the Ninth of Av), a day of fasting and mourning for the destruction of the two Biblical temples which stood at the site in antiquity.

Nearly 18,000 Jewish worshippers went to the holy site on Sunday, the newspaper reported, citing police figures.

Police said tens of thousands of Muslims flocked to the site in Jerusalem’s Old City early on Sunday marking the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha.

The site, which has long been a flashpoint at the epicenter of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is the holiest for Jews and the third holiest for Muslims, after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

The nation of Jordan, which serves as the custodian of the holy site, said in a statement through its foreign ministry that it had sent a formal complaint to Israel and criticized what it called Israel’s “irresponsible provocations.”

Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman Safadi tweeted Sunday, “We condemn Israel’s violations of sanctity of Al Aqsa, especially on this holy day. Its attempts to change the status quo in occupied #Jerusalem & its holy sites will only lead to more violence, threatening security of all. Int’l community cannot remain silent on these violations.”

Many Palestinians had gathered at the gates of the compound early Sunday after rumors circulated that police would allow Jewish visitors to enter the site.

Protesters threw stones at police and chanted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great”) and police reportedly retaliated by charging into the compound while firing stun grenades and rubber-coated bullets.

Police initially blocked Jewish people from entering the site to prevent conflict, according to the Jerusalem Post, which reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had instructed them to do so at first. The newspaper reported that this led to “sharp criticism” and a later reversal, with Netanyahu denying he gave such an order.

Netanyahu said in a tweet that after consulting with security forces on Thursday he made the decision to allow Jewish people to go to the Temple Mount on Sunday even though it coincided with a Muslim holiday.

He added, “The question was not at all if they could go up, but how to best manage it from a public safety standpoint, and that is exactly what we did.”

Toxic algae kills 3 dogs hours after they played in North Carolina pond, owner says

Toxic algae killed three dogs in a matter of hours after they played in a North Carolina pond last week, their owner wrote on Facebook.

Melissa Martin of Wilmington wrote that around noon on Thursday her three dogs, Abby, Izzy, and Harpo, “contracted blue green algae poisoning” after swimming in a local pond.

“We are gutted,” she wrote in the post.

“I wish I could do today over. I would give anything to have one more day with them.”

She added, “What started out as a fun night for them has ended in the biggest loss of our lives. We need your prayers.”

In another Facebook post, Martin wrote that the dogs’ health deteriorated quickly on Thursday. Martin said early Friday morning that she initially thought that her dog Abby had been stung by something.

Her dog Izzy started “seizing,” she wrote, adding that when she had contacted a veterinarian she was told to bring her dogs. She said by the time Izzy arrived, she “was almost lifeless” and “Harpo was just beginning to seize.”

“The Westies were really out of it, constantly seizing and unable to breathe well, so we decided we would let them go together peacefully,” Martin wrote.

“In the process, Harpo started to go down hill soon after.”

She added, “The vet said that he was suffering and his chance of survival with no liver failure and internal bleeding was very low.” She went on to write, “I held him and told him how awesome he was, and reminded him of all the lives he touched. Then we let him go.”

SERVICE DOGS TRAVEL TO EL PASO TO COMFORT VICTIMS AND FIRST RESPONDERS

Martin wrote, “The hardest thing I have ever done is hold these incredible animals and watch their lives slip away.”

She said that her goal since then has been to warn others of the dangers of “this deadly bacteria.”

Some blooms of blue-green algae can produce chemicals toxic to animals and people who drink the untreated water, according to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). The department added that the algae bloom may turn the water neon green, blue-green or reddish-brown, could cause a bad smell and taste in the water and sometimes forms a foam or scum on the water’s surface.

The algae also could kill fish and can cause skin irritation or breathing irritation in people who get in the water or handle the algae, according to the NCDHHS.

On her Facebook page, Martin shared a post from Morgan Fleming of Marietta, Ga., on Sunday, who said she also lost her dog after she brought her to a lake.

In response to Fleming’s post, Martin wrote, “And here we go again! It’s a traumatic, excruciating death. We are heartbroken for them, and unfortunately, we know how they feel, times three.”

Fleming said she took her dog Arya to a lake on Saturday morning and about 30 minutes later on the drive home, she “noticed her making weird noises and she threw up and pooped in the car.”

She called a veterinarian who told her to bring Arya.

“By this point our girl couldn’t even stand,” Fleming wrote, adding that veterinarians told her Arya was in critical condition so she took her to the emergency room.

“By the time we got there, she was brain dead,” Fleming wrote.

She added, “We lost our fun, loving, and crazy girl to what we can only assume was a lake toxin such as blue green algae.”

‘Terrorists’ linked to murder of young Israeli soldier in West Bank arrested, IDF announces

Two “terrorists” accused of murdering a 19-year-old off-duty soldier in the West Bank last week have been arrested, the Israeli military announced on Saturday.

The Israel Defense Forces tweeted, “We have found the terror squad that murdered IDF soldier Cpl. Dvir Sorek.”

Sorek was found dead with stab wounds Thursday outside a settlement in the Gush Etzion region, which is near the West Bank city of Hebron, the military said.

“In an operation—together with Israeli security forces—we located and arrested the 2 terrorists suspected to have committed the attack,” the IDF wrote in the tweet on Saturday, which included a photo of an arrest and another picture of the operation in progress.

“We will continue in our fight against terror,” the tweet went on to say.

The suspects reportedly were linked to a Palestinian terror cell. At least two in that group were brothers from Hebron, Israel’s Channel 13 TV reported. There was no immediate Palestinian comment.

The army said in a statement that the car the militants used in the attack was seized.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced the killing as a terror attack last week.

In another tweet posted on Saturday, Netanyahu wrote that he commended the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and security forces who captured the suspects within 48 hours.

“In the last few years our forces put their hands on all the Palestinian murderers that attacked Israelis and today they did it again,” he wrote in the tweet. “We will continue to fight terrorism intensely on all fronts.”

The Islamic militant group Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, accused the Palestinian Authority, its rival in the West Bank, of cooperating with Israel to identify the militants behind the murder.

Hamas celebrated the murder last week writing in a statement, “We salute the hero fighters, sons of our people, who carried out the heroic operation which killed a soldier of the occupation army.”

The death of the young soldier came just over a month before Israel’s parliamentary elections, with Netanyahu’s right-wing allies calling for further West Bank settlement construction and a tough response.

Armed off-duty firefighter halts armed suspect at Walmart store in Missouri, police say

An armed man wearing body armor sent panicked shoppers fleeing from a Walmart store in Missouri on Thursday, but an armed off-duty firefighter was able to detain the suspect until police officers arrived to make an arrest, Springfield police said.

The 20-year-old suspect was carrying loaded tactical weapons, according to reports.

“His intent obviously was to cause chaos here, and he did that,” Springfield police Lt. Mike Lucas told The Springfield News-Leader.

“His intent obviously was to cause chaos here, and he did that.”

In a Facebook post, Springfield police wrote that officers were dispatched to the Walmart store around 4:10 p.m. Thursday on reports of  “an armed white male.”

The suspect was wearing body armor and military-style clothing, according to the News-Leader, which cited information from Lucas.  He walked inside the Walmart carrying a “tactical rifle” and another gun, the newspaper reported, and carried more than 100 rounds of ammunition.

The suspect grabbed a cart, pushed it around the store and recorded cell phone video of himself walking through the Walmart, Springfield’s KY3 reported, citing police.

The television station reported that the store manager pulled a fire alarm, which prompted people to flee from the store.

The suspect then made his way out an emergency exit where the firefighter held the man at gunpoint, the station reported, adding that police showed up about three minutes later and made the arrrest.

Police said no shots were fired and no one was injured.

Lucas described the suspect as “pretty stoic” during initial police contact, the News-Leader reported.

“At this time, the investigation is on-going and we are working to determine his motives,” police said in the Facebook post.

A fire marshal was reportedly called out to the scene to inspect the suspect’s car in the parking lot, to make sure there were no bombs in the vehicle.  Police said investigators will review surveillance video from the store and also check the suspect’s social media accounts to see if he was live-streaming the events, the newspaper reported.

California gang member in custody after stabbing, robbery spree that killed 4, wounded 2: police

A “documented gang member,” who police said “should have been in prison,” was responsible for a two-hour stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California that killed four people and injured two, authorities said Thursday.

Garden Grove Police Chief Tom DaRe told reporters that Zachary Castaneda “could have injured or killed many other people” had he not been apprehended as he walked out of a convenience store in the neighboring city of Santa Ana, dropping a knife and a gun he had taken from a security guard he had just killed.

Police told reporters the violence appeared to be “random,” with DaRe adding that Castaneda was “violent” with detectives who attempted to interview him Wednesday night and was kept in restraints.

“He never told us why he did this,” the chief said. “We know this guy was full of anger.”

Police said the violence unfolded across eight crime scenes in Garden Grove and Santa Ana, including an apartment complex, a bakery, an insurance office, a gas station and a Subway restaurant. The attacker and four of his alleged victims were described as Hispanic, the other two were described as Caucasian.

The two people who were injured in the attacks, a 44-year-old Hispanic man and a 54-year-old Hispanic woman, had undergone surgeries and were listed in stable condition.

Castaneda has a conviction for possession of meth for sale while armed with an assault rifle, said DaRe, who added that investigators were still putting together his entire criminal history, he said. Officials didn’t specify what crimes sent Castaneda to prison or when he was released, but the chief said the suspect should “never have been considered for early release” from prison based on his prior arrest record.

Garden Grove police Lt. Carl Whitney said police had previously gone to Castaneda’s Garden Grove apartment to deal with a child custody issue. The suspect’s mother had been living with him and had once asked police how she could evict her son, he said.

Whitney said Castaneda stabbed two men to death during a confrontation after he allegedly burglarized their apartment. Police said one of the men died inside an apartment and another was found wounded on the balcony and died at a hospital.

One of the victims at the apartment was identified as Romanian immigrant Helmuth Hauprich, 62. Hauprich’s son, Erwin, told The Associated Press that his father had called him and said his passport, green card, sword collection and even a dining table were taken from the apartment.

Erwin Hauprich said his father never called back and he went to check on him after hearing there had been a stabbing at the complex.

A police officer told him that Helmuth Hauprich had been taken to the hospital, where he died, the son said. He said he was told his father’s roommate was killed in the apartment.

Whitney told reporters a bakery also was robbed where Castaneda allegedly threatened a clerk with either a gun or a knife and took cash.

The bakery owner, Dona Beltran, said she was sitting in her car charging her cellphone when she saw a tattooed man get out of a Mercedes and go inside the business. Beltran, 45, followed him inside to offer help but kept quiet when she saw him trying to open the cash register.

She then ran out of the shop and yelled she was being robbed before taking refuge in a nearby dental office, she said. He ended up taking the entire register with him, which had about $200, she said.

“I saved myself because I was in the car,” she said in Spanish on Thursday. “Thank God I am alive.”

Castaneda also robbed an insurance business, where the 54-year-old woman was stabbed several times and “almost killed,” Whitney said.

“She fought as best she could,” said the lieutenant, who added that Castaneda was armed with “some sort of machete knives” when he confronted the woman and got away with cash.

He then went to a check-cashing business next door, according to Whitney, where an employee “threw cash at the suspect.” He then took off again.

Police said shortly after 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Castaneda drove up to a Chevron gas station, where he attacked a man pumping gas “for no reason.”

“There was no robbery,” said Whitney, who added that the victim was stabbed in the back and “his nose was nearly severed off his face,”

Whitney said undercover detectives tracked Castaneda’s silver Mercedes to the parking lot of the 7-Eleven in Santa Ana and within a minute of their arrival, the suspect walked out of the store, carrying a large knife and a gun that he had cut from the belt of a security guard he allegedly stabbed shortly before.

Police ordered the man to drop his weapons and Castaneda complied.

Whitney told reporters after Castaneda was taken into custody they learned that a man who was about to enter a nearby Subway restaurant also had been fatally stabbed during a robbery.

Whitney said surveillance cameras caught some of the attacks.

Charges have not yet been filed. Police said they are still processing evidence from eight different crime scenes and once they reviewed all the evidence the district attorney’s office will file charges.

Castaneda is scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.

Pipe bomb mailer Cesar Sayoc sentenced to 20 years behind bars

Florida strip club DJ Cesar Sayoc, who pleaded guilty to sending pipe bombs to prominent Democrats and other people opposed to President Trump, was sentenced Monday to 20 years behind bars.

Manhattan Federal Court Judge Jed Rakoff ruled on Monday afternoon that Sayoc would spend two decades in prison.

CESAR SAYOC, WHO PLEADED GUILTY TO MAILING NON-WORKING BOMBS, TELLS JUDGE HE NEVER INTENDED TO HURT ANYONE

Prosecutors had called for a life prison sentence for the amateur body builder from Aventura, saying the sentence is “necessary and appropriate.” Sayoc’s lawyers had argued that a decade in prison was enough.

The onetime pizza delivery man faced a mandatory decade in prison after pleading guilty to explosives charges on March 22 for mailing 16 inoperative pipe bombs days before the midterm elections last fall.

Sayoc admitted the devices he sent were capable of exploding and causing injury.

However, in two letters sent to Judge Rakoff in March after the plea hearing, he maintained that the devices were never meant to explode and he didn’t intend to inflict harm.

Sayoc pleaded guilty to sending 16 rudimentary bombs to targets including Hillary Clinton, former Vice President Joe Biden, several Democratic members of Congress, former President Barack Obama, actor Robert De Niro and billionaire George Soros. Devices were also mailed to CNN offices in New York and Atlanta with former Obama administration intelligence bosses as the intended recipients.

‘The Rookie’ star quits ABC show, citing claims of sexual harassment and racial discrimination

Westlake Legal Group Afton-Williamson 'The Rookie' star quits ABC show, citing claims of sexual harassment and racial discrimination Talia Kaplan fox-news/entertainment/tv fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc dbcfd259-0b12-5c15-bc02-4e151f2bb8cd article

Actress Afton Williamson, who stars in the ABC drama “The Rookie,” announced Sunday she will not be returning to the show, citing sexual harassment and racial discrimination she allegedly experienced during the making of the first season.

She made the announcement that she is quitting the ABC crime series in an Instagram post on Sunday.

“I will not be returning for Season 2 of The Rookie,” Williamson wrote in the post. “I owe it to you my amazing fans to share the Truth.”

FORMER CBS EXEC BLASTS NETWORK FOR CULTURE OF ‘SYSTEMATIC RACISM, DISCRIMINATION AND SEXUAL HARASSMENT’

In the post, she outlined a series of claims against the show, including an accusation that she was sexually assaulted by the show’s hair department head.

Williamson wrote, “bullying from the Hair Dept. Head escalated into Sexual Assault at our Wrap party.”

She added that she was sexually harassed by a recurring guest star and that executive producers allegedly bullied her “throughout the filming of the pilot.”

Williamson was highly critical of how her claims were handled, saying they weren’t seriously investigated by the network.

“The Sexual Harassment though reported directly to the Showrunner/EP (Executive Producer) remained undocumented and was not reported to HR (Human Resources) as promised,” Williamson wrote on Sunday.

She continued: “The Hair Dept. Head was fired ONLY after the sexual assault and NOT for an entire year of outward racism/racially charged language and bullying behavior in and out of the Hair and Makeup trailer.”

Williamson wrote that she was asked to return for season two and was promised that “everything was handled.”

“The investigation hadn’t even begun and Season 2 had already started filming,” she wrote on Sunday. “I turned it down and I walked.”

She went onto say, “Now is the best time in the world to be a woman and I have a platform so it’s time to use my Voice. Strength comes from within.”

Entertainment One — the lead studio on The Rookie — launched an ongoing investigation into Williamson’s claims, The Hollywood Reporter said, citing sources.

The magazine added that it was unclear if the investigation was opened before or after Williamson left the show.

An ABC Studios Spokesperson told Fox News in a statement that they are taking the matter “very seriously.”

“The allegations involve a production from Entertainment One. In late June, eOne made us aware and informed us that they launched an investigation that is ongoing. The safety of working environments is a top priority for us, and we take this matter very seriously.”

Representatives for eOne did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment but a spokesperson released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter stating, “We take claims of this nature very seriously. We have initiated an independent investigation which is ongoing and as such, it would not be appropriate to comment at this time.”

“The Rookie,” which follows a man in his 40s at the Los Angeles Police Department, was picked up straight to series and renewed for a second season, according to the magazine.

A Tennessee Uber driver shot a man who fired a gun at him and his passenger on Wednesday night, according to police.

The Uber driver told police that he drove his passenger to a Nashville liquor store and once there, the passenger held the door open for a man later identified as Jason Johns Jr., who gave him an “odd look,” according to The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

Police said Johns then followed the Uber driver and passenger to a nearby street and when the driver stopped to let out his passenger, Johns fired shots from about 10 feet away.

The Uber driver then allegedly returned fire, striking Johns, who took off on foot then got a ride to a local hospital where he was treated for wounds to his chest and an arm, WKRN-TV reported, citing affidavits.

Affidavits reportedly said Johns first lied about what had happened but later admitted that he was “disrespected” at the liquor store so he followed the Uber and opened fire.

The Uber driver and his passenger were not hit by gunfire, police said.

Johns, 18, left behind a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder that was reported stolen, according to police.

Johns has been charged with aggravated assault and theft.
