Undercover Agent Draws Pistol During Arrest of Protesters Near Ramallah

Undercover Agent Draws Pistol During Arrest of Protesters Near Ramallah

An undercover Israeli agent tackled a masked protester near Ramallah, punched him multiple times, drew a gun, and took him into custody on December 13. In this footage, a masked protester can be seen standing at the side of the road, holding what looks like a slingshot. A masked Israeli agent in plain clothes tackles him from behind, punching him multiple times. The man on the ground does not fight, instead holding up two fingers in a peace sign to a group of nearby journalists. The Israeli agent’s scarf falls off his face, and he pauses to try to rewrap it. He draws a handgun and points it at the group of reporters. He pulls the protester off the ground, and at least two other people can be seen being arrested by plain clothes agents holding guns along with uniformed Israeli soldiers. Clashes between protesters and Israeli soldiers at the northern entrance to Ramallah and Beira have occurred since US President Trump on December 7 recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Toddler Hilariously Chants For Dad's Rival Baseball Team

Despite his dad’s preference, this toddler knows which baseball team he wants to support! This is what the wife and mother of the two boys told Storyful about the hilarious video: "My husband is a huge Red Sox fan. I grew up in NYC, and my whole family supports the Yankees. We agreed when we started our family in NYC that they would be Boston fans (sort of a compromise) so my son wears a Boston Red Sox hat all the time. One day in the elevator my husband and I heard my 1.8-year-old son singing something under his breath. We finally realized he was saying “Lets Go Yankees.” (It) turned out the doorman in our building had been teaching him to say that as a prank because he always wears his Red Sox hat! My husband quickly tried to rectify the problem as you see in the video, but now my whole family is in on it and determined to make him a Yankees fan!" Credit: Bsnyc1407 via Storyful

Rescuers Use Hammer to Free Puppy Trapped Between Two Brick Walls

A Flemington family had to call an animal rescuer to free a 12-week-old puppy named Pixie on December 12 after she somehow found herself lodged between two brick walls. The Herald Sun reported the English setter was playing in the family’s backyard when she became stuck around midday. Owner Davydd Griffiths told the Sun: “She is a very naughty little pup … she was out playing and having a little adventure when she got stuck. I don’t know how she managed it but she has jumped into this gap and got wedged between two solid brick walls.” Unable to coax her out, Griffiths called animal rescuer Nigel Williamson, who used a hammer and drill to smash an opening big enough for the pooch to crawl through.
