@livecrisisnews @ZellaQuixote The #coronovirus has a somewhat unique trait among the crises that @livecrisisnews reports on: it actually exists, unlike the April 2019 massive radiation cloud over Salt Lake City, UT and the February 2019 Bridgewater, NJ tornado.
@livecrisisnews @ZellaQuixote Other past emergencies @livecrisisnews tweeted about despite them not having happened: an EF5 tornado that hit New York City in April 2019 and a February 2019 eruption of Mount St. Helens. (The volcano was last active in 2008 per Wikipedia.)…

#Breaking: #IDF confirms a major weapons research and development lab belonging to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad located within Syria has been targeted and destroyed. (@Archer83Able)
Israel carried out a similar strike in November targeting a high level Islamic Jihad official, however they missed.. perhaps they went back to tie up loose ends? Guess we'll see.
I'm fairly confident this airstrike purely targeted R&D like the original claim by the IDF stated, just to reiterate.

People in hospitals not provided simple face masks as staff transfer a coronavirus patient.

Iranian officials exported the country's mask supplies to China for massive profits. Now masks are very rare & extremely expensive in Iran.

#BREAKING: Intelligence officials warned House lawmakers last week that Russia is interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get Trump re-elected.

Trump responded by ousting Joseph Maguire from his position as acting director of national intelligence.
"During the briefing to the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Trump’s allies challenged the conclusions, arguing that Mr. Trump has been tough on Russia..."

ie, Republicans are going to let Russia interfere in the election as long as it helps Trump.
Speaking on @MSNBC right now, Adam Goldman of @nytimes says House Republicans were "furious" when intelligence officials said Russia was trying to interfere in the election in favor of Trump.

They weren't furious at Russia. They were furious at the intelligence officials.
