It was a busy day off the Libyan coast. Human traffickers of all sorts swarmed the water, looking for prey.
[AlAhram] Humanitarian groups on Sunday said they rescued 176 migrants colonists on two rubber boats in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Libya while Tunisian authorities reported blocking a smuggling boat carrying 110 migrants colonists from setting off for Italia.
Doctors Without Borders and SOS Mediterranee said their Ocean Viking ship rescued 74 migrants colonists Sunday morning about 50 miles (80 kilometers) off the Libyan coast near an oilfield. The groups said six children were among those rescued. In the afternoon, the groups said they rescued 102 people aboard another rubber boat about 40 miles off the coast. They said 12 women, four of them pregnant, and nine children were on board.
Tunisia's interior ministry said three coasties boats pursued the smuggling boat after it left Friday night from the city of Sfax. Officers shouted through loudspeakers at the boat and passengers threw projectiles that injured two officers and broke windows.
The coasties eventually forced the boat back toward Tunisia and rescued 25 migrants colonists who had jumped into the sea.
Meanwhile, ...back at the pond, the radioactive tadpoles grown into frogs. Really big frogs, in fact... three small boats carrying migrants colonists reached Italian shores on Sunday. ANSA, the Italian news agency, said two boats - one carrying 15 people, the other 11 - landed on the island of Lampedusa. The agency says a third boat with 15 Tunisians aboard landed in southern Sicily.
The new Italian government is doing exactly what it promised to do...
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] At least five officers were killed in a weekend attack by an gang in Niger’s western Tillaberi region, a local politician said on Sunday.
The region, which is close to Mali, has been rocked by recurrent bad boy attacks.
"On Saturday, an attack targeted a patrol of gendarmes in the town of Sanam, killing five of them," a local Tillaberi politician told AFP.
"The assailants arrived on a cycle of violences and targeted the patrol near the village of Abare on its market day."
A security and government source confirmed the attack without being able to provide the corpse count.
No group has grabbed credit for the attack.
Extremists, including those from ISIS ...embracing their inner Islamic Brute... , have a presence in southwestern Niger near the border with Mali - where they have carried out bombings, shootings and kidnappings.
More than 250 non-combatants were killed and nearly 240 others were kidnapped between January and August this year, mainly in Niger’s regions of Diffa, Tillaberi and Tahoua in the west, according to a UN report in September.
Niger’s President Mahamadou Issoufou has repeatedly called on the West and the United Nations ...an idea whose time has gone... to help the country battle the bad boys.
But the presence of French, American, and German forces in Niger as well as the UN in neighboring Mali has not stopped the increasing attacks.
[Dhaka Tribune] Members of Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) arrested 7 suspected members of banned bully boy outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) from Narayanganj, and Pabna on Sunday.
In Narayanganj, RAB 11 arrested two suspected activists of ABT when they were holding a secret meeting in the dead of night at a madrasa under Fatullah cop shoppe in the early hours.
The arrested are Md Mehedi Hossain, alias Murad, 24, and Md Amanullah, 33, confirmed RAB 11 Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Md Alep Uddin.
Mehedi told RAB that he completed his Bachelor of Science degree from a private textile university in Dhaka in 2016, he joined JMB in 2014. He was reaching out across the country to gather recruits up until now. Md Amanullah was a madrasa teacher in Narayanganj who joined ABT through Mehedi. Amanullah secretly held meetings of the JMB members in his madrasa.
The RAB seized a large number of books, and a laptop containing digital data on extremism from their possession.
In Pabna, RAB 14 arrested five suspected activists of ABT from Bera, and Santhia upazila.

[AlAhram] The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a Ottoman Turkish air strike on a convoy in the Syrian town of Ras al Ain killed 14 people including five civilians and maimed 10 on Sunday.
Observatory Director Rami Abdulrahman said the strike had hit a gathering of civilians who had come to Ras al Ain from the city of Qamishli to show support as the town is targeted by Ottoman Turkish forces attacking Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria.
Several foreign journalists were with the convoy when it was struck, according to a news hound from French broadcaster La Belle France 2.
An SDF statement said Ottoman Turkish "invading forces" had targeted a civilian convoy with international media journalists on board that was heading to Ras al Ain accompanied by its fighters to "express their rejection of the Ottoman Turkish invasion".
It said "tens of civilians were dead and injured."
[AA.TR] The YPG/PKK terror group on Sunday set a camp on fire in the Ayn Isa district in northern Syria, where they were holding captured ISIS ...embracing their inner Islamic Brute... detainees and their families.
"Today at 11.00 a.m. local time [800GMT], senior members of the [terrorist] organization came to the camp and took all of the civilian employees out of the camp [...] At around 13.30 p.m. [1000GMT], we saw that a fire started in the camp area and the smoke was increasing. When our friends went to see as to what was happening, they saw that offices were burning. If the detainees and families had set this fire on their own, our offices would not have been damaged. Our offices are separate from a place where ISIS people and their families were held. This fire was set by the [terror] group itself. They took us out before they set the fire and it is a proof that they initiated the fire," a civil servant told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity due to security reasons.
A civil servant added that thousands of ISIS terrorists, their families and other civilians -- who were held in the region -- were fleeing the camp area.
Nearly 5,000 people, including 2,000 ISISbandidosbully boyz and their families, were held in the camp. Another 3,000 people were the civilians who had fled other Syrian districts due to the conflict.
Ayn Isa is at about 35 kilometers (21.7 miles) from The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... ’s border.
Update: Pro-Turkish sources claiming a missle of "barrel bomb" type has just hit a convoy near the village "Kormaza", very heavy casualties reported inside ranks of SNA terrorists and allies.#Twitterkurds#Rojava#SDF#Turkey#TFSA#Syria

The ME, a region of the world with ever-changing alliances and ever-changing terrorist groups. I recall several times when McCain went over to Syria. In 2017, he met with (some say illegally) the Muslim Brotherhood and AQ (most of whom later became ISIS). Nancy Pelosi went over to Syria in 2007 to meet with Assad although George W. asked her not to. There was no outcry by the MSM. So now, the MSM is reporting that Trump is screwing things up in Syria by abandoning the Kurds. No wonder the American people (the ones who send their sons and daughters to fight never-ending wars and pay the price) are not listening to the MSM and siding with Trump. McCain trips. Pelosi trip, the trip where she donned the hijab.
[DAILYSABAH] Syrian regime troops began moving to the north to confront The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor... 's ongoing counterterrorism operation, state TV said Sunday.
State media, which said the troops were moving to face "Ottoman Turkish army aggression," did not say where the regime troops were deploying in northern Syria.
Earlier Sunday, the Lebanese broadcaster al-Mayadeen said Bashir al-Assad's forces would deploy within 48 hours to the town of Ayn al-Arab which is held by the PKK's Syrian affiliate, the People's Protection Units (YPG), and the nearby town of Manbij which is controlled by YPG-aligned forces.
The towns fall within a swathe east of the Euphrates River controlled by the YPG bandidosbully boyz that is currently being targeted in an operation by Turkey and the Syrian National Army (SNA).
