Pakistan Denies Firing First in Spin Boldak Clash That Killed 9-15, Injured 50-100
[ToloNews] Pakistain’s foreign ministry in a statement on Friday blamed the Afghan cops for starting a clash on Thursday night at the Spin Boldak crossing in Kandahar that left at least 15 Afghan civilians dead and 80 more maimed.

In the statement, Pakistain's foreign ministry claimed that the Pakistain Forces "did not open fire first and responded in self-defense only."

Afghan officials and eyewitnesses have insisted that Pak forces fired first.

#2  The Trump administration has cut by half its budgetary request for a fund that the US uses to compensate coalition partners for military and logistical support, which could mean Pakistan, the principal beneficiary of the allocation, will get next to nothing from it.
The fiscal year 2020 budget request for Coalition Support Fund (CSF) of $450 million reflects a $450 million (50%) decrease from the FY 2019 enacted level of $900 mn, the US department of defence said in a summary of its budgetary requests released Tuesday.
The reason for the reduction, it said, was “the continuing suspension of US security assistance to Pakistan based on the President’s January 4, 2018, guidance”.

Tunisia navy rescues 70 migrants on boat from Libya
[AlAhram] The Tunisian navy on Friday rescued 70 migrants colonists from sub-Saharan Africa on a sinking rubber boat headed to Italia from Libya, the defence ministry said.

Ministry front man Mohammed Zekri told AFP the boat had broken down in international waters and was taking on water when the navy intervened at around 1:00 am local time.

Five women and four children, including a months-old infant, were among those on board, said Mongi Slim of the Red Islamic Thingy.

The migrants colonists, who had set off Wednesday from western Libya, were taken to Zarzis port, near the Libyan border in southern Tunisia.

They were to undergo tests for COVID-19 and be confined to a Red Islamic Thingy centre, Slim said.

Nearly half of the 11,000 or so migrants colonists who made shore in Italia this year set off from Tunisia, and most of those were Tunisian citizens, according to Rome.

Other arrivals largely set off from war-torn Libya.

Africa Subsaharan
Nigeria president says security problems 'very, very disturbing'
[AlAhram] Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, in a rare interview, on Friday acknowledged the scale of security problems in two troubled regions, saying developments were "very, very disturbing".

Buhari came to power in 2015 vowing to crush a bloody jihadist revolt in the northeast, which has escalated while violence by criminal gangs has spread in the centre and northwest of the country.

Referring to the latter regions, Buhari said, "What is coming up in the northwest and north central is very, very disturbing indeed.

"I believe the military, the police and other law enforcement agencies, from the reports I am getting, I think they could do much better," he said on national TV.

"They could do much better, but we are keeping them on the alert all the time to do their duties."

Buhari, a 77-year-old former general, has typically had close ties with the military, often insisting that the country's security problems were under control.

His criticism of the security forces came only days after armed forces chief Tukur Buratai said he was "proud" that Nigerians "are living in peace, and Nigeria is safer now than... five years ago".

Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
's insurgency in northeastern Nigeria has claimed more than 36,000 lives in 10 years and forced around two million people from their homes.

The jihadists have also stepped up their attacks in the Lake Chad region abutting Nigeria, affecting Niger, Chad and Cameroon
...a long, narrow country that fills the space between Nigeria and Chad on the northeast, CAR to the southeast. Prior to incursions by Boko Haram nothing ever happened there...
Four people were killed late Thursday when rockets slammed into Maiduguri, the main town of Borno state, where Boko Haram first emerged.

Conflict of a different kind has gripped the northwest and north-central of the country, hitting the states of Zamfara, Kaduna, Sokoto and Katsina.

Here criminal gangs have spread terror in rural areas, stealing cattle, carrying out ransom kidnappings and carrying out ruthless raids on villages.

They are not deemed to have an ideological motive, although some commentators have warned that they could link up with jihadists, noting an ambush in Katsina that killed at least 23 troops.

Last week, the Senate passed a resolution calling for military chiefs to resign or be fired over the country's "deteriorating security situation".

The house also asked for an official investigation after a newspaper reported that 356 soldiers had asked "for voluntary retirement" early this month because of poor conditions and high risks.

Caucasus/Russia/Central Asia
Turkey Sends Fighter Jets to Azerbaijan After Threat to Bomb a Nuclear Power Plant
[BREITBART] The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
’s state-run Anadolu news agency confirmed the arrival Ottoman Turkish F-16 fighter jets on Friday to Azerbaijan for joint military drills, aiding a nation that threatened to bomb a nuclear power plant this month.Azerbaijan is currently embroiled in a heightened tension situation with its neighbor and longtime rival Armenia. Both have disputed the Nagorno-Karabakh border territory, legally under Azerbaijani command but claimed by Armenia because the population there is ethnically Armenian, for years. The current tensions follow a military skirmish elsewhere on the border, in the Tavush region, that occurred in early April, leaving 16 dead soldiers on both sides.

It remains unclear which side started the fighting that led to those deaths, but the government of Turkey immediately condemned Armenia for triggering the hostilities and stated it would offer any support Azerbaijan requested.

On Friday, Anadolu reported that Ankara and Baku had organized joint military drills featuring air exercises.

"Ottoman Turkish F-16 fighter jets have arrived in Azerbaijan for joint military exercises, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said on Friday. In a statement, the ministry said the jets will take part in the TurAz Qartali-2020 Joint Exercises, which began on Wednesday," Anadolu reported. "The drill, involving jets and helicopters, will continue in the capital Baku as well as Nakhchivan, Ganja, Kurdamir, and Yevlakh until Aug. 10."

Anadolu noted the context of the Tavush attack and revealed that, of the 16 killed, 11 were Azerbaijani soldiers, including a major general in the Azerbaijani army.

On Wednesday, Anadolu noted that the two states are also planning joint ground exercises next week, including "artillery, armored vehicles, and mortars striking simulated targets."

Turkey’s increased involvement in Azerbaijan follows a threat from that country to bomb a nuclear power plant in the region, potentially causing millions of casualties. Armenia is home to the Metsamor Nuclear Power Plant, a poorly maintained relic of the Soviet era built near an earthquake fault. Following the Tavush incident, a front man for Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry threatened to destroy it.

The Grand Turk
US designates, sanctions key ISIS financial supporter in Turkey
[THEBAGHDADPOST] The United States has recently sanctioned a key financial supporter for ISIS inside The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
, according to a statement from the US Treasury Department.
Washington has accused Turkey of "undermining" the fight against ISIS last year and sanctioned two ministries and three senior Ottoman Turkish government officials for a military campaign against US-allied forces in Syria.

"The Ottoman Turkish Government’s actions are endangering innocent civilians, and destabilizing the region, including undermining the campaign to defeat ISIS," the US Treasury Department said at the time.

This week, the Treasury Department announced the designation of two ISIS financial controllers in Syria and Turkey.

"This action coincides with the thirteenth meeting of the Counter ISIS Finance Group (CIFG), which includes over 60 countries and international organizations, and plays a fundamental role in coordinating efforts to deny ISIS access to the international financial system and eliminate its sources of revenue," a statement from the US agency said.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that the Trump administration was fully committed to disrupting ISIS’s financial activities and networks. "Together, with our CIFG partners, we must remain vigilant to ensure that the global remnants of this terrorist group do not regain a foothold," Mnuchin said.

According to the Treasury Department, one of the ISIS supporters, Adnan Amin Muhammad al-Rawi, was an ISIS controller in Turkey.

The statement also said that the latest US designation was part of a series of actions since 2016, when "ISIS finance emir Fawaz Muhammad Jubayr al-Rawi," was designated. "Since then, Treasury has continued targeting other al-Rawi network members and their associated entities for providing critical financial and logistical support to ISIS," according to the statement.

American citizen accused of blasphemy shot dead in Pakistani courtroom
More on the story from yesterday: Pakistani accused of blasphemy gunned down in Peshawar court
[FoxNews] An American citizen accused of violating Pakistani blasphemy laws was shot and killed in court. Tahir Ahmad Naseem, 57, had been on trial at the Peshawar Judicial Complex Peshawar on charges that he had claimed to be a prophet, when he was shot six times. The shooter was identified by authorities asa local 19-year-old man named "Faisal."

The United States urged Pakistan Thursday to overhaul the harsh law, which critics say often persecutes members of religious minorities, according to the New York Times.

Naseem had been lured to Pakistan from Illinois by people who wanted to entrap him using Pakistan's blasphemy laws, according to the State Department. Conular officers had been working with Naseem and his family since he was detained there in 2018.

"We grieve with the family of Mr. Naseem," said. Cale Brown, a State Department spokesperson. "We urge Pakistan to immediately reform its often abused blasphemy laws and its court system, which allow such abuses to occur, and to ensure that the suspect is prosecuted to the full extent of the law."

Ahmad Naseem had been a member of the Ahmadi sect, which was declared heretical under the Pakistani Constitution, according to the Times, but he left the group and claimed to be the messiah.

Southeast Asia
Philippines: Soldiers, Abu Sayyaf Militants Killed in Southern Clash
[BenarNews] Three Filipino soldiers and six holy warriors from a faction of Abu Sayyaf
...also known as al-Harakat al-Islamiyya, an Islamist terror group based in Jolo, Basilan and Zamboanga. Since its inception in the early 1990s, the group has carried out bombings, kidnappings, murders, head choppings, and extortion in their uniquely Islamic attempt to set up an independent Moslem province in the Philippines. Abu Sayyaf forces probably number less than 300 cadres. The group is closely allied with remnants of Indonesia's Jemaah Islamiya and has loose ties with MILF and MNLF who sometimes provide cannon fodder...
inspired by the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(IS) died Friday during a clash in a remote jungle on southern Sulu island, two days after a major clash in another region of the southern Philippines, the military said.

Members of the 32nd Infantry Battalion were on the trail of Abu Sayyaf members when they were attacked by other holy warriors before noon, triggering fighting near the town of Patikul in Sulu province, according to Maj. Gen. Corleto Vinluan, chief of the army’s Joint Task Force Sulu.

"It is with deep sadness to report that three of our brave soldiers succumbed to death while defending the people of Sulu," Vinluan said.

At least six Abu Sayyaf fighters were killed but only three corpses were recovered after holy warriors removed the others from the battle scene, he said.

The names of the soldiers killed were not immediately available as their next of kin had not been notified, said local military front man Maj. Arvin John Encinas of the Western Mindanao Command.

The gunbattle occurred on Eid-ul-Adha, the Moslem festival known as the Feast of the Sacrifice, one of the two most important holidays on Islam’s calendar.

The Abu Sayyaf is a small gang of holy warriors known for carrying out some of the country’s worst attacks, including kidnappings for ransom and bombings.

An IS-linked faction is led by Hatib Hajan Sawadjaan who is accused of planning and orchestrating the bombing of a Catholic church in Sulu’s capital town of Jolo that left 23 people dead in January 2019. Two Indonesian jacket wallahs were killed in that incident and authorities recently said they averted similar attacks with the arrest of four holy warriors in Manila.

Friday's shootout
comes two days after two soldiers and at least 10 suspected holy warriors were killed during another shootout in the southern Philippines as troops hunted for a big shot of a different bully boy group linked to IS. At least 13 soldiers were maimed, a Philippine Army front man said.

The two-hour shootout on Wednesday with suspected members of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters
...a MILF splinter group aligned with the Islamic State...
bully boy group broke out as the army’s 57th Infantry Battalion launched an operation in marshlands near Datu Salibo, a town in Maguindanao province, officials said. The troops were searching for Ustadz Karialian, a BIFF commander also known as Imam Minimbang.

The two festivities occurred in towns that are about 750 km (465 miles) apart.
