20 July 2019: For the record. Situation of battle between GNA and LNA in south of Tripoli
– The Libyan National Army after a long time halt in the Ain Zara area, start its advances and after severe engagements entered Yarmuk military camp. It is said Government of National Accord forces have retreated from the camp...
The GNA Ministry of Justice granted former Gaddafi prime minister Al-Baghdadi Al-Mahmoudi a compassionate release.
[France24] Six soldiers were killed and several were wounded in an overnight attack in central Mali, the army said Thursday, in fresh violence in the war-torn West African state.
The troops came under fire late Wednesday from "unidentified armed men" in Dioungani, an area in central Mali's volatile Mopti region near the border with Burkina Faso, the army said on Twitter.
Local authorities and inhabitants have blamed the attack on jihadists.
The army gave a "provisional toll" of six dead and several wounded, without giving further details.
Mali has been struggling to contain an Islamist insurgency that erupted in the north in 2012 and has claimed thousands of military and civilian lives since.
Despite some 4,500 French troops in the Sahel region, plus a 13,000-strong UN peacekeeping force in Mali, the conflict has engulfed the centre of the country and spread to neighbouring Burkina Faso and Niger.
Local Malian troops are frequently attacked. On Tuesday, two soldiers were killed in the Mopti region when their convoy hit a roadside bomb.
Suuuure. Let's have open borders so Donks can add new voters? F*&k them. Build the wall
[Breitbart] American authorities identified and apprehended three Syrian nationals accused of belonging to al-Qaeda in Dallas, Texas, from Colombia, the Colombian news agency RCN reported on Thursday, publishing images of the three individuals’ fake passports.
According to RCN, American law enforcement identified the three individuals as Al Raefee, Tuameh Tuameh, and Al Harari Al Harari. The three are believed to be in U.S. custody, soon to be charged with membership in a terrorist organization. The men appear to have entered Colombia through Venezuela, where they acquired Colombian residency paperwork, a government identification card, and a Colombian passport through an illegal documentation network.
Journalist Luis Carlos Vélez published images of the counterfeit passports on Twitter, noting that the men appeared to have crossed into Colombia through the La Guajira border crossing with Venezuela. Reports have not yet specified how the Syrians entered Venezuela or how long they had spent in the country after leaving Syria. Vélez reportedly stated that the U.S. embassy identified them as al-Qaeda terrorists when they attempted to procure U.S. visas, which does not align with the RCN report that police arrested them in Dallas. The RCN report does not note if Dallas authorities arrested them at the airport, which would suggest the men did receive U.S. visas and got onboard a flight to the country, or if they arrived by other means.
American authorities reportedly suspected criminal activity after inspecting the passports and finding several irregularities. The identification numbers on all three passports, RCN noted, did not match their birthdates. Colombian passports assign numbers to citizens based on when they were born. Although the youngest of the three men is 45 years old according to his passport, the identification number on his passport corresponded to a much more recently born person, at most 25 years old.
All three passports were also produced on the same exact date and stamped "La Guajira," the Colombian state bordering Venezuela where it is believed they traveled to from Venezuela. The passports also stated that all three men were born in Cartagena, Colombia.
RCN reported that Colombian authorities have traced the falsified documents back to an "illicit network" of organized criminals who produce high-quality counterfeit documentation to help criminals evade arrest. While not citing any government officials confirming the existence of the network of an investigation into it, RCN claimed that the network had helped over 1,200 foreign citizens ‐ Cubans, Afghans, Israelis, Iraqis, Chinese, Vietnamese, Africans, and Ecuadorians ‐ obtain fake Colombian documents.

send them straight to the capital and make them listen to the impeachment trail.
The men appear to have entered Colombia through Venezuela, where they acquired [counterfeit] Colombian residency paperwork, a government identification card, and a Colombian passport through an illegal documentation network.
I was wondering how they pulled this off. Probably easy, for the right amount of money, to acquire counterfeit documents from the cash-strapped failed state of Venezuela.
Why then go wandering through the American compound while Al Qaeda-linked jihadis were roaming the grounds with scowling faces?
I'll bite. Why do crowds of third-worlders squat scooping gasoline while the angel of death flaps overhead, cackling and rubbing sparks from his hands? Need and nature. Of course he's guilty as hell (the phone call) or so incredibly unlucky ("I must speak securely with Fearless Leader. Gimme dat phone, O frail, harmless, looting passerby!") that it would be impious not to pile on.
[IsraelTimes] A number of suspicious balloons apparently launched from the Gazoo ...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response... Strip were found Thursday in southern Israel.
Police said that four balloons, three in Kiryat Gat and one in a community in the Shafir Regional Council, had suspicious objects attached to them.
Sappers were dispatched to deal with them.
"In one case the object went kaboom!, with no injuries in the incident," police said.
Hours earlier, a spokesperson for the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council said a suspicious bunch of balloons was found there. "Military forces immediately came to the scene and handled the situation successfully," the spokesperson said.
The balloon launches came a day after Israeli television reported that Egypt is involved in "intense efforts" to get the Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", terror group to end a recent uptick in arson balloon attacks on Israel from Gaza amid fears of a return to violence.
Hundreds of Syrian militants launch attacks against government forces in several parts of Idlib province, killing up to 40 Syrian soldiers, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.https://t.co/KFCpv1N3qM
[IsraelTimes] The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund... ’s foreign minister urges Russia to halt the Syrian government’s attacks in the war-torn Arab country, a day after Arclight airstrike ...KABOOM!... s on rebel-held sectors and the shelling of government-held areas killed at least 17 people, including an entire family.
In his remarks, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu insists it is Moscow’s responsibility to stop the violence as Russia has been a staunch supporter of Syrian Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir Pencilneck al-Assad Supressor of the Damascenes... ’s forces in the civil war.
The Syrian government has been carrying out an offensive on the northwestern province of Idlib, the last rebel stronghold in the country, and the rebel-held parts of nearby Aleppo province. The fighting has displaced hundreds of thousands of people, many of whom fled to areas closer to the border with Turkey.
Dozens of fighters have been killed on both sides in recent days as festivities intensified. The fighting comes despite a new cessation of hostilities agreement between Russia and Turkey that went into effect earlier this month. Moscow and Ankara stand on opposing sides of the conflict in Syria.
"Russia is the guarantor of the (Syrian) regime," Cavusoglu tells a panel at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland ...home of the Helvetians, famous for cheese, watches, yodeling, and William Tell... . "Russia is obliged to stop this aggression. The situation in Idlib is our main focus because the regime has been increasing its aggression," he adds. "Already, 400,000 people have been displaced and moved toward our border."
Idlib is dominated by al-Qaeda-linked groups, but is also home to 3 million civilians. The United Nations ...a lucrative dumping ground for the relatives of dictators and party hacks... has warned of the growing risk of a humanitarian catastrophe along the Ottoman Turkish border.
