Morning terror attack in West Bank leaves two wounded


A Palestinian rammed his auto into two people, including an elderly man, before getting shot while trying to stab soldiers at a central West Bank junction on Friday morning, the army said.

"A Palestinian ran into an Israeli in the [Jewish-only] Gush Etzion [settlement bloc] in the southern West Bank", Israeli military spokesman Avichai Adarai said in a statement.

1st Test: After rains, it's ruins for India
Lakmal finally conceded a run after 47 deliveries into his opening spell, the longest such instance in test cricket since 2002. It was an agonising end to Rahul's streak of seven successive fifties.

The assailant then proceeded to the Efrat junction, where he ran over a 35-year-old man, who suffered a serious head injury and was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem. The army subsequently closed the area, blocking all access to Palestinians.

He went on to assert that the soldiers had opened fire on the Palestinian, effectively "neutralizing" him.

By Tesla's calculation, the cost per mile for its all-electric Semi would be $1.26, compared with $1.51 for a diesel. Still, manufacturers are mostly focused on medium-duty trucks, not the heavy big rig market Tesla is after.

The two Israeli victims were taken to Jerusalem's Shaare Zedek Medical Center, MDA said.

Despite many such incidences of unprovoked attacks on Palestinian, a culture of impunity with the Israeli military means no one is held accountable.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.

There were no reports of Israeli soldiers injured, the army said. Amnesty International is among numerous human rights organisations that have condemned such policies, which impact families for years after an attack occurs.
