Would any one be able to confirm the location of this bridge? Терракты батальона Матейченко The uploader seems to state that the bridge is located between #gorlovka   #Dzerzhinsk  and #Mateychenko  in #Donetsk . There seems to be one main route: https://goo.gl/maps/GbPvz and this article claims that the explosion disrupted traffic between  Novozolotarevka and Seversk and between Nikitovka and Dileevka

For everyone who cares deeply about social media verification: American Journalism Review just did a feature on Storyful (which moderates this board) and the hard work done by journalists there to verify content: http://ajr.org/2014/07/09/fooled-fake-social-media-step-step-guide/

Thanks to an Iraqi guy, I now can accurately translate it.
The gov soldier asks the victim why he got nearby the soldier's unit, which "was waiting to fight ISSI since yesterday." The victim says he was going out to his work.

The statement was posted on the Islamic Front's YouTube channel. We seeking a translation or even a brief summation of the main points made in this statement. Any assistance appreciated. +Mark Antony

This week Kuwaitis have been rallying for the release of a a former MP and opposition leader Musallam Al-Barrak, after the public prosecutor ordered he be held on accusation of insulting the judiciary. This video shows scenes from the protest on July 2 and we are continuing to monitor the situation.

TV footage shows rebels in Donetsk operating an SA-13 Gopher / Strela 10 SAM system. That' s a very sophisticated weapon system and clearly shows Russia's involvement.

striking footage. Which Russians are involved here? There's 150-odd million of them in the neighborhood.

We're looking into this video of a rocket interrupting a wedding in Israel. (Interestingly, it's also been uploaded to the IDF French channel.) Has anyone seen this footage or know more about it? Thanks.  Rockets from Gaza disrupt wedding Live Israël : des roquettes interrompent un mariage à Ashdod

Versions of this video were shared widely yesterday but we were never able to track down the original. It may have been submitted directly to Ynet - http://www.ynet.co.il/articles/0,7340,L-4540093,00.html - but can't confirm. The location is reportedly Holon

Seeking more information on light in sky seen in this video - is this an Israeli artillery flare? Confirmation/clarification appreciated. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152505374745560&set=vb.503095559&type=2&theater - we are also checking claims via IDF that MANPADS are being used by Gaza militants. Very much unconfirmed.

Thanks +Ido Liven - I guess that's what I want to clarify; is this an interception or a flare. Appreciate it.

Maybe Abbyy Reader is the best. I used it to scan Arabic texts but I had to make numerous corrections.

A new UNHCR report has found that more than 145,000 Syrian refugee families in Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan, or one in four of all households, are headed by women facing poverty, harassment and isolation.  This video provides a review of the findings.

Looking for information on this FB video, supposedly some Israelis trying to save a Palestinian youth from other Israelis on a bus?

#VIRAL: What was that?! New Ukrainian Def Min ‘signs’ his oath… with capped pen

На самом деле, ничего удивительного. Всё украинское правительство - это фикция, клоунада. Посмотреть, какие действия совершают, решения принимают, что говорят, пропагандируют. Более того, совсем не укладывается в голове, там и тут у них говорящие фамилии. Министр Культуры - Кривда (обратное от слова "правда"), это евреи Порошенко (удивительно созвучный с "потрошением") и 'брат' его Коломойский, Кличко с боевыми кличами на Майдане зимой и соплями будучи на посту мера города, министр энергетики Продан (который сыну вице-президента США продал место в совете директоров крупнейшего углеводородного холдинга, экс президенту Польши и прочим политикам), и т.д..
Безумие.

Any ideas on this video, guys? 
 
Seeking more information on this video from the #Ukraine  border guard service, described as showing "terrorists" voluntarily surrendering to Ukrainian forces. However, no context is given - eg date, location. Is there anything in the video that would offer some more details, or does anyone know any more about this incident?
