RAFAH, Palestinian Territories — One Palestinian was killed and nine others wounded on Sunday in an Israeli air strike that targeted a motorbike in the southern Gaza Strip, Palestinian medical sources told AFP.
“One citizen was killed and five others, including two children, were wounded by an Israeli aircraft that fired on a motorbike in the Brazil neighbourhood in Rafah,” a medical source at Rafah hospital told AFP, later updating the number of wounded to nine.
The Israeli military confirmed the strike, and in a statement said its aircraft “targeted Talaat Halil Muhammad Jarbi, (b. 1989), a Global Jihad operative from Rafah, and Abdullah Muhammad Hassan Maqawai (b. 1988), a member of the Ashura Council of the Martyrs of Jerusalem, a Gaza-based Global Jihad affiliate,” a statement said.
According to the statement, Jarbi was long “involved in extensive terrorist activity, targeting Israeli civilian and security forces, including rocket firing, weapon manufacturing, and other terrorist activities in the Gaza Strip.”
It said he was a “senior operative” involved in planning and carrying out an attack along the border security fence on June 18 in which an Israeli civilian was killed.
“He had also been planning a complex attack intended to take place along the Sinai border.”
Palestinian eyewitnesses confirmed the names but corrected Jarbi to Dirbi.
One of the wounded, a man, was in serious condition, the medical source said.
Trump spokesperson goes down in flames up against progressive reporter: ‘All you do is lie!’
President Donald Trump's spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany went down in flames up against Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks during a CNN panel Wednesday.
McEnany went on to try and spin the president as some sort of great leader for Black Americans. She said that the campaign is very "proud" of the president's record on issues involving people of color.
"He also just said he wouldn't change his position on the Central Park Five," cut in Cuomo.
McEnany tried to cut in, but Cuomo cut in. "Now, he said we'll leave it at that. Come on."
"Chris, you come — come on, you," McEnany shot back. "We've been talking about the Central Park Five and racism and all of these things going back to the 2016 election, problem -- American people didn't believe it."

On Wednesday, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow delved into the latest stunning revelations surrounding Maria Butina, the admitted Russian agent at the heart of a plot to infiltrate the National Rifle Association and the Republican Party — and the connections to a high-ranking State Department official in charge of arms negotiations with Russia.
"Josh Rogin at the Washington Post reports tonight that Maria Butina also turned up at the wedding of Mike Pence's national security adviser," said Maddow. "Mike Pence's national security adviser, Andrea Thompson, got married that summer of 2017, first summer of the Trump Administration. She's got that awesome new job. Getting married and Maria Butina was at the wedding. Why was she at the wedding? U.S. Person One, her boyfriend, Paul Erickson, was officiating the wedding. Oh.

Fox News’ Hannity has to stop and remind Trump to use anti-FBI propaganda in the middle of an interview
The president seemed to short-circuit in his interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday.
President Donald Trump began speaking about the report from special counsel Robert Mueller, repeating "no collusion, no obstruction." He then went off on a tangent about the dossier from Christopher Steele and whether or not he was spied on as a candidate in 2016.
"If they spied on my campaign and they may have, it will be one of the great revelations in history of this country," Trump told Hannity. "I will tell you, it’s going to be very interesting, I think we are going to find out. Can you imagine if it were the other way around and I spied on President Obama’s campaign? Can you imagine what the repercussions would be? Or I spied on cricket Hillary’s campaign. Can you imagine with the repercussions would be?"
