Africa North
Child Soldiers Still Being Recruited in South Sudan, UN Reports
[Bloomberg] Children are still being forced to join armed groups in South Sudan, even as others are released and warring sides make steps toward ending the five-year civil war, a United Nations envoy said.

"We are not seeing any progression," Virginia Gamba, the UN special representative for children and armed conflict, told reporters Friday in the capital, Juba. She said about 1,200 minors were recruited by unspecified groups last year and such activity is continuing in 2018, although about 900 have been freed.

Both South Sudanese rebels and pro-government fighters have forced more than 19,000 children to take up arms since the conflict began in December 2013, according to the UN Children’s Fund. The UN has repeatedly accused both sides of committing atrocities. The main warring parties signed a series of peace deals over the past month.

Arabia
Twenty-Six Wounded as Saudi Intercepts Yemen Rebel Missile
[AnNahar] Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
shot down a ballistic missile fired by Yemen's Houthis on Wednesday, with shrapnel leaving 26 people maimed, a Riyadh-led coalition fighting the Death Eaters said.

Two children were among the maimed from the missile that was intercepted over the southern Saudi city of Najran
a city in southwestern Saudi Arabia near the border with Yemen. It is the capital of Najran Province and a favored target of Houthirocket forces....
, said a coalition statement published by the Saudi state media.

The Iran-backed Huthis have in recent months ramped up missile attacks against Saudi Arabia, which Riyadh usually says it intercepts.

The Huthis' al-Masirah TV said Wednesday's strike was targeted at a Saudi National Guard camp in the border city.

The attack brings the tally to more than 185 rebel missiles launched since 2015, according to the coalition, which that year joined the Yemeni government's fight against Houthis.

Iraq
State Dept. Confirms Mortar Attack Near U.S. Embassy in Iraq
[Free Beacon] The State Department confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon there was a mortar attack near the United States embassy in Iraq on Thursday.

A video captured a series of sixteen explosions which can be seen lighting up the night sky.

U.S. officials confirmed a series of explosions near the U.S. embassy in the Green Zone in Baghdad.

"We are closely ‎following reports of possible explosions outside of the Green Zone in Baghdad," a State Department official said on background.

The embassy has not been impacted and U.S. staff are taking appropriate safety precautions and prioritizing the safety of Americans on the ground.

"‎The security and safety of Americans are among our highest priorities," the official said. "Host nation security and U.S. embassy security officials will take appropriate measures to safeguard personnel and visitors.‎"

Sources say the attack came from Baghdad Area Zayoona which is well known for control of Asae'b Ahlil Al Haq, an Iraqi Shi'a paramilitary group backed by Iran. The group was active during the Iraqi insurgency and in the Syrian Civil War.
From the group’s lengthy Wikipedia entry: “Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq (AAH; Aṣayib Ahl al-Haq, "League of Righteous People"), also known as the Khazali Network, is an Iraqi Shi'a paramilitary group active in the Iraqi insurgency and Syrian Civil War. During the Iraq War it was known as Iraq's largest "Special Group" (the Americans' term for Iran-backed Shia paramilitaries in Iraq), and claimed responsibility for over 6,000 attacks on American and Coalition forces. The group is currently fighting against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant as part of the Popular Moblization Forces. The group is funded and trained by Iran's Quds Force. In 2017, AAH created a party with the same name.”
The mortars used in the attack are identified as 120mm which are considered heavy mortars and could cause extensive damage.

Sources believe the Iranian-backed group is responsible for the attack.

Iranian-backed forces have long been operating in Iraq and have obtained U.S. arms. Iran continues to solidify its presence in Iraq, which it considers a key strategic location.

Russian Air Force strikes jihadist rebels in southwest Idlib

The Russian Air Force continued their heavy bombardment of the Idlib Governorate, today, after taking a short hiatus overnight to concentrate on the Hama province.

Russian Sukhoi jets reportedly unleashed several airstrikes along the Turkish border this afternoon, hitting a number of jihadist targets inside the strategic district of Jisr Al-Shughour.

According to a military source in western Syria, the Russian Air Force primarily targeted areas that had a large presence of jihadist rebels from the terrorist group known as the Turkestan Islamic Party.
...also known as Turkistan Islamic Movement (TIM) and formerly as the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) and other names, it is an Islamic extremist terrorist organization founded by Uyghur jihadists in western China. Its long term goal is to establish an independent state called "East Turkestan" in China’s Xinjiang province, but in the meantime it is based in North Waziristan and practices on the playing fields of Syria, where it is allied with Al Nusra and has some support from the Turkish govrenment of neo-Ottoman Sultan Recep Tqyyip Erdogan I, the much beloved.
Due to the large presence of jihadists in this district, the Russian Air Force has concentrated their efforts on disrupting Turkestan Islamic Party’s main supply route in military bases.

With the Syrian Arab army preparing offensive northwestern Syria the Russian Air Force has intensified their aerial campaign against the jihadist rebels.

According to a military source, the jihadist missiles that targeted Joureen missed the Syrian army’s positions and hit the surrounding farms.

The Syrian Army then retaliated by firing several ground to ground missiles at the jihadist defenses in the area.
