(Scroll down for video) A little girl who was hospitalized for injuries suddenly caught fire while playing inside her hospital room, according to hospital officials in Oregon.

The cancer survivor, who is 11-years-old, was hospitalized with a head injury and is now recovering from third degree burns after her shirt mysteriously caught fire in a hospital room in Portland, Oregon.

The girl, Ireland Lane, had been painting in her room at Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Suddenly, she ran down the hall screaming, with her shirt on fire.

"I've been in medicine for 30 years and had never heard anything like it. I hope I never see it again," Doctor Stacy Nicholson, chief physician at Doernbecher Children's Hospital, said.

"Our security experts are working closely with the Office of the State Fire Marshal of Oregon in their investigation," Nicholson said in a statement. "We look forward to the results and will certainly make adjustments if the cause was preventable," she added.

Hospital staff extinguished the flames, but the cause of the fire remains a mystery. Ireland said she used disinfectant to clean a table near her bed, where she painted a wooden box as a gift for her nurses.

Authorities are investigating whether the alcohol-based disinfectant and static electricity could have caused the fire, a spokesperson for the Oregon State Fire Marshal, said.

Boy gets new inedible room after being caught eating the walls

Zach Tahir and his mother in his new room 
By: Moses Gold

(Scroll down for video) A British boy who was caught eating up his bedroom walls finally received a new inedible room, according to press reports in the United States.

After Zach Tahir began to chop off the plaster walls of his bedroom in order to eat it, his mother, Rachel Horn, had an idea for a perfect gift for his sixth birthday, an inedible bedroom.

Tahir suffers from “pica”, a condition that is defined as a pattern of eating non-food materials. Besides eating plaster, he has also eaten window shades, stones, moss and paper.

To pay for the new room, Horn got 26,000 pounds from her local board for her child's disability and then raised an additional 10,000 pounds through fundraising and an extensive campaign that featured celebrities on twitter, as well as being featured on a local television news station.

Horn said that Tahir, who is also autistic, enjoys the sensation of eating products that are overly crunchy in texture, but Horn has not succeeded in replacing safe food products for his favorite non-food.

"Bless him because Zach has to eat the real thing," Horn told a television news station in the United States.
The new room features chew proof walls, a non-slip floor that can not be picked off and unremovable window blinds.

For Horn, looking after Tahir has become a full-time job. The 32-year-old had to quit her job as a bank teller in order to take care of Tahir and his 3-year-old sister.

By: Debbie Gross

An overweight woman wanted to get a massage after she ran in a marathon.

Laura Smith went to the Natural Healing Center, in Colorado,
for a massage but she was denied services because of her size. She was told that she is “too fat” for a massage.

Smith wanted a massage to relieve the side effects of a marathon she ran the day before. She was looking forward to a relaxing massage.

Instead of leaving with her muscles relieved, the owner of the Natural Healing Center told Smith: "I'm sorry, but you're too fat for our table. You’re probably going to break it and you’ll have to pay for it.”

Smith, who is 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 250 pounds, was surprised because she had received massages at other spas before.

Although the table is supposed to hold people up to 500 pounds, Penny Wells, the owner of the Natural Healing Center, said that the table has been broken in the past after a 165 pounds man laid down on it, which is why she was worried about Smith breaking the table.

Israeli military drone 
By: David Ross

Reports that claimed that an Israeli drone was shot down at the Lebanon-Syria border was nothing more than a used anti-aircraft missile, according to press reports in Israel.

Conflicting reports from Lebanon and Syria swirled around the announcement of the downing of an Israeli military drone. Wednesday, the press in both countries reported that an Israeli drone was shot down while trying to enter Syrian airspace and crashed in the area of ​​Rashaya, which is in the valley of Lebanon.

But on Thursday morning, military sources revealed that witnesses who reported the incident were wrong and the object was a falling anti-aircraft missile, apparently from Syria.
The announcement has not been verified by Syria, while the Israeli military has denied knowledge of the incident.

At the same time, there are those who insist on the original version. A Lebanese security official said he was in contact with senior officials in Damascus that said that the Syrian army shot down two Israeli drones who had tried to enter the country's airspace. According to reports, the incidents occurred in the mountains of eastern Lebanon, between Der Al-Azhar and Yanta.

A Lebanese newspaper reported that according to the country's military, nine Israeli drones entered Lebanese skies within 24 hours.

The first report of an Israeli drone downing was revealed Wednesday night and was attributed to a Palestinian security source in the organization of the Popular Front For The Liberation of Palestine.

This was followed by a report on the website affiliated with the Syrian government, which reported the same. There were witnesses who were quoted as saying that they saw drone parts falling from the sky.

After his arrest, the assumption was that Yaacoub intended to carry out terrorist attacks against Israeli targets in Cyprus. He denied it, but admitted that his handlers told him find kosher restaurants in Limassol. He also said that he was sent by Hezbollah to other areas where there were a large presence of Israelis and Jews, as Antalya and Amsterdam.

"Although I was asked to participate in a terrorist act, I refused. I could never do that," Yaacoub said. "I'm just trained to defend Lebanon," he added.
Yaacoub was arrested during the summer and according to reports, the Mossad was involved in locating him.

By: Sarah Weiss

Israel has been known for its humanitarian aid to countries around the world when disasters strike.

Now, Israel is at it again and amazingly they are helping those who see them as the enemy. Syria is a war zone where two Muslim groups are fighting each other, leaving hundreds of people dead every day.

Recently, five people from Syria were rescued by IDF soldiers, as they were found injured at the Syrian border. The were transported to the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, Israel, for treatment.

Now, the The Israel Defense Forces is preparing to build field hospitals near the Syrian border in the Golan Heights, to treat wounded Syrian citizens who are affected by the country's civil war.

There were a number of issues involved in the decision of setting up the hospital. First and foremost was the humanitarian aspect.

Amongst other reasons were Israel’s national security. With the hospital near the border, Israel will be prepared to help the wounded Syrian people, without having to take the injured for treatment into Israel.

The United Nations’ 1951 Refugee Convention prohibits any government from forcibly repatriating asylum-seekers.

Therefore, building hospitals on the border would allow Israel to help the wounded Syrians without opening the borders to thousands of refugees trying to get into the State of Israel.

Syria and Israel are still officially at war. President Bashar al-Assad claims that Israel is behind the violence in their country.

Nigeria discovers terror group planning attacks on Jews

Abdullahi Mustaphah Berende 
By: Ryan Lee Hall

A terror cell that plotted attacks against Jews was discovered by police in Nigeria, according to police reports in Nigeria.

Nigeria's undercover police unit said Wednesday that they were alerted about a terrorist group backed by Iran, who wanted to assassinate a former military leader and gather information on places frequented by U.S. Jews and Israelis.

The State Security Service, responsible for domestic spying in Africa's most populous country, gave no details on who actually controlled and funded the group. However, they said they had detained three suspected terrorists, including the group's leader, before they could launch any of the planned attacks.

“The leader of the terror group successfully implemented monitoring and collection of relevant data operations for possible attacks,” secret police spokesperson, Marilyn Ogar, said in a statement. "The leader personally took pictures of the Israeli cultural center in Ikoyi, Lagos, after getting instructions from his handlers," she added.

The police identified 50-year-old Abdullahi Mustaphah Berende, as the leader of the local sect of Shia in Ilorin. Ogar said that Berende was arrested along with two other suspected members, while another remains at large.

Berende first traveled to Iran in 2006 and studied at an Islamic university, Ogar said. He later returned in 2011 and learned to use Kalashnikov assault rifles and pistols as well as make and detonate homemade explosives, she said.
Berende also received about $30,000 in cash to fund planned operations of the group.
