Pakistani terrorist among 2 killed in Paktiya province of Afghanistan: MoD
[KhaamaPress] The Afghan National Defense and Security Forces killed a Pak terrorist and one of his accomplices during an operation in South-eastern Paktiya province.

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) in a statement said the security forces killed the holy warriors during a raid in Samkanai district of Pakitya.

MoD also released the National Identity Card of the slain Pak terrorist who has been identified as Jawad Ali.

The anti-government armed bandidos gunnies including Taliban
...Arabic for students...
have not commented in this regard so far.

Paktiya is among the relatively volatile provinces in South-eastern parts of country, bordering the porous regions along Durand Line. Both Taliban and al Qaeda are active in some remote regions of the province.

#1  Getting ready for a tank-led push into Libya to help the LNA finish off the GNA? Hard for the Turks to match that, short of a really expensive expeditionary force.

Britain
UK police arrest four men suspected of planning terror attacks
[IsraelTimes] Four men were arrested on Thursday in London and central England on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts, British police says.
Clive, Nigel, Owen?
Armed officers arrested three men aged 17, 27 and 31 at two addresses in east London, while unarmed colleagues detained a fourth 32-year-old man in the county of Leicestershire.

The Metropolitan Police says no shots were fired but the 27-year-old was bitten on the foot by a police dog during the arrests and had been taken to hospital.

His injuries were not believed to be serious, it adds.

"All four men were arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism," the force says in a statement.

"Officers are currently searching the three addresses, and a search is also underway at a fourth address in east London as part of the investigation."

The Met says it had been assisted by officers from East Midlands Counter Terrorism Policing and Leicestershire police force in what it called a "proactive investigation."

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
PA says Palestinian man killed by Israeli troops in West Bank
[IsraelTimes] IDF says soldiers shot up 2 men throwing Molotov cocktails at a military post, hitting one of them.

A Paleostinian man died at a hospital in the West Bank city of Salfit after being shot in the neck by Israeli forces, the Paleostinian Authority Health Ministry said Thursday.

The official Twitter account of PA President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
...aka Abu Mazen, a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial. While no Yasser Arafat, he has his own brand of evil, just a little more lowercase....
’s Fatah party identified him as Ibrahim Abu Yaqoub. It said one other person was injured.

The Paleostinian news agency Ma’an said Abu Yaqoub was 29.

The announcement by the PA came as the Israel Defense Forces said troops shot up two Paleostinians who were throwing Molotov cocktails at a military post in the northern West Bank.

An IDF spokesperson said one of the Paleostinians was hit by Israeli fire, while the other fled.

Paleostinian accounts disputed the IDF statement saying the two men were committing violence.

Salfit’s governor, Abdullah Kmeil, said in a statement that Abu Yaqoub was fired upon "without any kind of justification, as he was walking quite normally with his friends."
“It’s quite normal to casually aim firebombs at Israeli soldiers, then forcefully throw the things at them with murderous intent,” he added.
The two were shot "after Israeli forces invaded Kifl Haris," a village in the northern West Bank, "and shot them in cold blood," the Salfit governorate said on its Facebook page.
“Really, if Jews had not invaded this area for the purpose of colonization in 1892, we would not need to respond to the invasion now.”
Abu Yaqoub’s funeral will be held in Kfil Haris after Friday prayers, the statement said.

Iran has Executed 30 Kurdish Inmates since January: Monitor
[THEBAGHDADPOST] A human rights

monitoring group revealed on Thursday that Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both.

s of 123 prisoners. According to the figures revealed by the human rights group, Kurds are making up nearly 24% of the total victims of execution sentences in Iran. The majority of the death penalties were issued on alleged murder charges, Hengaw agency added.
