Hamas co-founder dies after accidentally shooting himself in face, militant group says

A co-founder of the terror group Hamas died Tuesday, three weeks after accidentally shooting himself in the face while cleaning his weapon, an official said.

Imad al-Alami, 62, was “examining his personal weapon in his home” Jan. 9 when the gun went off and a bullet struck him in the face, Hamas said.

He had been hospitalized in Gaza until his death, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Hamas initially announced al-Alami died of natural causes, dispelling rumors he'd committed suicide or was murdered. However, the group later admitted an accident had actually caused al-Alami's death.

Al-Alami held several key posts as a member of Hamas’ policy-making body and lived in Syria until 2012. He remained a top-ranking official, though not a member of the militant outfit's current staff.

After the 2014 Israel-Hamas war, al-Alami traveled to Turkey for treatment for an injury in which he lost a leg. Hamas said he was wounded in the war.

Wondering if the U.S. - through the criminal organization UN - paid the hospital bill.

Score for one (possibly 3) for the lions!!!!

https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/05/world/south-africa-poachers-killed-trnd/index.html



Suspected poachers sneaked onto a South African game reserve to hunt rhinos, but a pride of lions found them instead.

A guide at the Sibuya Game Reserve spotted what appeared to be human remains on Tuesday near the group of lions, according to reserve owner Nick Fox. It was getting too dark to search the area, so police came back the next day with the reserve's anti-poaching unit and other specialists.

The remains were strewn over an area covered with thick brush and Fox said it was impossible to know how many people were killed.

Investigators did find three pairs of boots and three pairs of gloves.

They also found a high-powered rifle with a silencer, wire cutters and an ax that Fox said would have been used to remove a slain rhino's horns.

"We're almost 100% sure this is connected to rhino poaching," Fox said.

The six lions in the pride were tranquilized while the area was searched.

"Investigators and specialists combed the scene and managed to retrieve remains, which were taken by the Department of Health to conduct forensic testing. Investigation continues and at this stage we are unable to speculate as to how the remains ended up at the scene," South African Police Service Capt. Mali Govender said in a statement.

Fox said he thinks the poachers got onto the reserve on Sunday night or early Monday morning.

An anti-poaching dog signaled that it noticed something during a patrol about 4:30 a.m. and her handler heard a commotion from the lions. Lions are often active at night, so the noise didn't raise suspicions.

"The anti-poaching unit never suspected anything wrong because it was the lions making noise and not the rhinos," Fox said.

The poachers had a rifle, but they did not get off a shot before the lions took them down, Fox said.

"It was a bit of luck for us and not so much luck for them," he said.

The poachers were apparently on foot when they encountered the lions, which is very dangerous.

Fox said reserve staff and guests never go near the lions unless they're in big trucks.

He said they're watching the lions closely and they have shown no signs of being aggressive around vehicles.

Rhinos are endangered and are prized for their horns.

In 2016, poachers killed three rhinos at the Sibuya Game Reserve and hacked off their horns.

Fox said security was increased at the 25 square kilometer reserve in Kenton on Sea and installed more cameras to monitor the rhinos.

Mine too.

Isn't it interesting how the Mossad can make an execution look accidental?  :thumbs:
 Even the Russians can't do that very well, try as they might.  ::)

Pretty happy about the lions eat poachers story ( good kitty!) but I wonder about those poachers. They went in to hunt rhinos (not me, actual badass, 5000lbs rhinos) but all 3 get eaten by lions?  Were they not prepared to encounter dangerous animals at all? Yes lions are badass as well but it's not like rhinos are tame. Sounds like a good candidate for the Darwin awards.

Since their demise was documented we can skip the nominations and and go right to the awards.   :)
