Palestinians stoned a Red Crescent ambulance, mistaking it for a Magen David Adom ambulance after it entered the city of Nablus.

The Red Crescent ambulance driver reacted angrily to the attack. "Even if we were talking about a Magen David Adom ambulance, it would have been here to help people. It is absolutely forbidden to attack an ambulance," the driver said according to a Kan News report.

"In a statement, Twitter spokesperson Ian Plunkett said: Weve seen no evidence to corroborate this claim, including from the article published in the Netherlands today. We proactively implemented account security measures for a designated group of high-profile, election-related Twitter accounts in the United States, including federal branches of government."

This trick used to work everywhere but it still works for the nytimes. Just press the cancel loading (the x by the refresh button) and it gets around the firewall
