ATF Officer Shot In Face On Chicago’s South Side
[CHICAGO.CBSLOCAL] An officer with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was shot and critically maimed overnight in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
... home of Al Capone, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel,...
Police Supt. Eddie Johnson had a direct message to the offenders on Friday: "Believe me you will not get away with this." Johnson ordered more special units in the neighborhood to ensure the safety of residents and find those responsible.

"We are coming for you," said Johnson, who said four officers have been shot in that neighborhood in the past year.

Authorities said Friday that there is now a $61,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Chicago Police say they were working on a joint operation with ATF when the officer was ambushed and shot in the face and the bullet exited through his cheekbone. The agent was taken to Stroger Hospital where is condition was stabilized. An ATF official said the officer is expected to fully recover.

A Chicago police officer returned fire but did not strike the offenders, police spokseman Anthony Gugleilmi said. Hundreds of officers are not assigned to the case. The gang who ambushed the officer may be the same gang that fired at a Chicago police van last year, he said.

Al-Shabab Kills 3 Kenyan Quarry Workers In Mandera Town
[RADIOSHABELLE] Three miners were killed and one injured by al-Shabaab
... Somalia's version of the Taliban, functioning as an arm of al-Qaeda...
murderous Moslems at a quarry in Mandera county in northeast Kenya on Thursday, an official confirmed on Friday.

Northeastern regional coordinator Mohamud Saleh said the murderous Moslems stormed the Shimbir Fatuma Quarry, about 65 kilometers from the Kenya-Somalia border, where the miners were living, on Thursday evening.

"Reports from the scene of an incident is that three were confirmed dead and one injured person is currently at Shimpir Fatuma health center while some are yet to be established where they are," Saleh said.

He said two of the workers escaped with gunshot wounds. The quarry workers seemed to have defied government orders to vacate the area following increased cases of al-Shabaab attacks in the restive region that borders Somalia

Two miners were killed by the militia in a similar incident a year go after they apparently sneaked back to the quarry in Mandera sub-county following a security operation.

The authorities in 2015 ordered all quarries in Mandera County near the Somali border be closed and all workers to vacate the places due to terror threats. The directive came after the murder of 14 quarry workers.

Clashes on Derna outskirts leave deaths, injuries among east Libya forces
[Libya Observer] Seven fighters have been killed and six others maimed from the eastern forces of the self-styled army led by Khalifa Haftar
...Self-proclaimed Field Marshal, served in the Libyan army under Muammar Qadaffy, and took part in the coup that brought Qadaffy to power in 1969. He became a prisoner of war in Chad in 1987. While held prisoner, he and his fellow officers formed a group hoping to overthrow Qadaffy. He was released around 1990 in a deal with the United States government and spent nearly two decades in the United States, gaining US citizenship. In 1993, while living in the United States, he was convicted in absentia of crimes against the Jamahiriya and sentenced to death. Haftar held a senior position in the anti-Qadaffy forces in the 2011 Libyan Civil War. In 2014 he was commander of the Libyan Army when the General National Congress (GNC) refused to give up power in accordance with its term of office. Haftar launched a campaign against the GNC and its Islamic fundamentalist allies. His campaign allowed elections to take place to replace the GNC, but then developed into a civil war. Guess you can't win them all...
in renewed festivities southern Derna with fighters from Derna Shura Council, local media reported a medical source from the field hospital in Qubba district.

...back at the shootout, Butch started the buffalo stampeding......
sources from Derna reaffirmed that heavy fighting and artillery shelling took place Thursday morning as al-Mukhtar operations room forces tried to advance on the city.

Al-Mukhtar operations room has been tasked by warlord Khalifa Haftar to encircle Derna and conduct attacks on the city's Shura Council fighters.

In the meantime, the front man for the Derna Shura Council, Mohammed al-Mansouri said they were able to foil the attack and to shell locations for Haftar's forces by heavy artillery fire.

"Derna attack has not been given the go-ahead yet. Our forces are well-prepared for it." The front man for the self-styled army in east Libya, Ahmed al-Mismari, said in a presser Wednesday.

He explained that "liberation of Derna" is looming.

UAE forces land in Socotra amid rift with Saudi-led forces
[PRESSTV] Residents and authorities on Yemen’s Socotra island say the UAE is boosting its military presence in the world heritage site as divisions widen among a Saudi-led war "coalition".

Security officials in southern Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of. Except for a tiny handfull of Jews everthing there is very Islamic...
said UAE forces had landed in Socotra along with tanks, armored transports and heavy equipment earlier this week, in what is being billed as a new-colonial takeover.

The deployment comes amid widening divisions between forces loyal to the UAE and those supporting the former Yemeni president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi.

Both camps are based in southern Yemen and mostly in Aden as the capital Sana’a still remains under the control of the Houthi
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The Yemeni government has accused the Houthis of having ties to the Iranian government, which wouldn't suprise most of us. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews ...
Ansarullah movement.

Hadi loyalists have accused the UAE of abandoning an initial cause of fighting the Houthis, saying Emirati forces are instead providing support to those seeking a separation of southern Yemen territories from the north of the country.

Sweden arrests suspect on suspicion of planning terror attack
[IsraelTimes] A Swedish prosecutor says a person has been incarcerated
Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw!
for preparing an act of terror.

Lars Morand says the person, born in 1987, was arrested Friday in the southern Swedish city of Lund. Morand declined to elaborate further.

It is unclear whether the arrest us linked to three men ‐ aged 29, 38 and 45 and holding passports from Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan ‐ who were arrested Monday in northern Sweden and Stockholm’s northern suburbs on suspected terror-related activities.

6 labourers gunned down in Kharan, Balochistan
[DAWN] Six labourers were killed and one injured in an incident of firing in Balochistan...the Pak province bordering Kandahar and Uruzgun provinces in Afghanistan and Sistan Baluchistan in Iran. Its native Baloch propulation is being displaced by Pashtuns and Punjabis and they aren't happy about it...
's Kharan district on Friday.

Levies sources said unknown miscreants on cycle of violences shot up labourers in the Laijay area of Kharan. The labourers ‐ all hailing from Punjab
1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots....

‐ were working on a mobile tower when they were targeted, officials said.

The assailants escaped unhurt from the spot after the attack.

Levies and personnel from other law enforcement agencies reached the site and launched an investigation into the incident soon thereafter. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

Militants have repeatedly targeted labourers from Punjab and Sindh working in various parts of Balochistan. Last year, four labourers from Sindh working on a road project were bumped off in the same area.

Israeli forces shoot, injure 1,100 protesters in Gaza
[PRESSTV] Israeli forces have fired live rounds at Paleostinians during anti-occupation protests and festivities along the border between the besieged Gazoo Strip and occupied territories.

Medical sources said at least 82 people were shot and maimed, three of them critically, and over 800 more were treated for gas inhalation and other injuries along the Gazoo side of the 40-kilometer border fence.

Paleostinian youths reportedly rolled burning tires to within 500 meters of the fence, using the smoke as a screen to counter Israeli sharpshooters on the other side.

Palestinian youths set Gaza’s own gas line on fire at weekly fence protests
[IsraelTimes] 7,000 Gazooks protest along security fence, fly dozens of 'Molotov cocktail kites' into Israel, fail to breach border; Hamas, the well-beloved offspring of the Moslem Brotherhood, claims hundreds injured, no fatalities; two IDF drones go down.

Dozens of Paleostinians broke into the Gazoo side of the Kerem Shalom border crossing between Israel and the Hamas-run Strip on Friday evening, setting fire to the gas pipeline that supplies fuel to the Strip, the army said.

The Gazooks, who did not break through to the Israeli side of the border, trashed their own supply infrastructure, Israeli military officials said.

"Shoot the archer and not the arrow", as the saying goes. This is a win-win tactic. For the Israelis, it stops the kite in the launch phase and provides an example to others of a similar mind. For the Paleos, it gives them yet another opportunity to cry oppression and brutality. Total win-win.

As for the pipeline fires, it is a well-known fact that Juice cooties are highly soluble in non-polar solvents. This leaves the Paleos with the difficult choice between risking an outbreak of Juice cooties which is like a cholera epidemic except the effects are totally imaginary vs having fuel for electricity, cooking and heat. Tough choice.

Syrian govt. forces discover Israeli-made arms smuggled to terrorists
[PRESSTV] Syrian government forces have discovered considerable amounts of Israeli-made munitions, including chemical warfare, digital equipment and drugs, destined for foreign-sponsored Takfiri
...an adherent of takfir wal hijra, an offshoot of Salafism that regards everybody who doesn't agree with them as apostates who must be killed...
Death Eaters and ISIS murderous Moslems in the country’s central province of Homs as well as the southwestern province of Rif Dimashq.

The Arabic service of Russia’s Sputnik news agency reported that Syrian army troopers launched a clean-up operation in the southern part of Homs, located 162 kilometers (101 miles) north of the capital Damascus, and uncovered a huge cache of ammunition and explosives, where were meant to be distributed among anti-government holy warriors groups.

Elsewhere in al-Hajar al-Aswad city, located just four kilometers south of Damascus, Syrian soldiers found Israeli-made weapons stashed inside a network of secret underground tunnels.

This is not the first time that Syrian government forces have made such findings from terrorists' hideouts across the war-ravaged Arab country.

On April 3, Syrian troops carried out operations in the villages of al-Salihiyah, al-Dweir, al-Kishma and Sabikhan in the country’s eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr near the border with Iraq, and discovered Israeli-built chemical substances, kabooms and weapons there.

Syrian soldiers also uncovered several artillery shells produced by some members of the US-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. A collection of multinational and multilingual and multicultural armed forces, all of differing capabilities, working toward a common goal by pulling in different directions...
An unnamed Syrian military source said many rocket-propelled grenades were found inside the ISIS arms cache in Salihiyah, while the depot in Dweir contained rocket launchers as well as mortar shells of different kinds.

Syria Rebels Hand over Arms in New Deal with Regime
[AnNahar] Syrian rebels on Friday were surrendering their heavy weapons after reaching a new deal with the government for a central swathe of territory, a war monitor said.

Opposition fighters agreed with regime forces and their allies to a ceasefire deal earlier this week for parts of Syria's central provinces of Hama and Homs, including the rebel towns of Talbisseh, Rastan, and al-Houla.

"The fighters are handing over their heavy and intermediate weapons to Russian and regime forces for the second consecutive day," said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

It included artillery and machine guns, said Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the Britannia-based Observatory.

"Once the handovers are finished, the rebels who want to leave will be evacuated out with civilians," Abdel Rahman told AFP.

Rebels and civilians will be granted safe passage to the rebel-held town of Jarabulus, in Aleppo province, and the neighbouring province of Idlib which largely escapes government control, according to state news agency SANA.

It said the deal also provided for the return of government institutions to the three towns and the reopening of a key highway.

That highway runs from the capital Damascus, through Homs, and onto second city Aleppo, in the north. Securing it has been a major target for the regime's military operations.

The area in Homs was part of a "de-escalation zone" agreed one year ago by opposition supporter The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund....
and regime allies Iran and Russia.

The four zones initially saw a reduction in shelling but violence has since escalated.

One of them, Eastern Ghouta, was recaptured last month by the Syrian government after a blistering two-month offensive that ended in forced evacuations of rebels and civilians there.

Jaish al-Izza, one rebel faction present in the Homs zone, has said it rejects the agreement and pledged to remain deployed on its front lines.

The agreement comes after several days of intermittent festivities and regime reinforcements to the area.

It is the third such transfer deal for Homs province, after thousands were bussed out in a pair of agreements for the city itself.

Such negotiated withdrawals have brought swathes of territory back under government control during the country's seven-year war, most recently near Damascus.

- Southern Damascus -
Another evacuation deal was underway on Friday in rebel-held areas south of the capital.

SANA reported buses were entering the towns of Yalda, Babila, and Beit Saham to take opposition fighters and civilians north to rebel territory.

It was the second day of transfers for the towns. Around 1,650 people, including rebels and civilians, were bussed out on Thursday and reached northern Syria the following morning, according to the Observatory.

YPG claims killed Turkish ally who was relocating rebels to Afrin
[Rudaw] The YPG announced they have killed a man in Afrin who was working with Ottoman Turkish forces to settle Syrians from elsewhere in the country in homes abandoned by the local Kurdish population.

According to the YPG, the Kurdish armed force in Rojava, Jamal al-Zakhlool "was forcing Afrin residents to flee their homes and was placing [Free Syrian Army
... the more palatable version of the Syrian insurgency, heavily influenced by the Moslem Brüderbund...
] Death Eaters and their families in the abandoned homes."

The YPG said that Zakhlool was coordinating with Ottoman Turkish intelligence (MIT) officials and was responsible for "establishing internal security forces, civilian administration and courts in occupied Afrin."

They allege he had been enforcing Sharia law in the canton.

According to Hediye Yusuf, a founding member of the self-declared Democratic Federal System of Northern Syria (Rojava), Zakhlool was formerly a police chief in Eastern Ghouta and his wife was killed alongside him on Thursday.

Publishing graphic photos on Friday of a deceased man they said was Zakhlool, the YPG said their forces killed him and three others in an operation on Thursday.

"Our forces will target all the elements in the Afrin Canton that are in contact or cooperation with the Ottoman Turkish invasion state," the YPG threatened.

The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund....
considers the YPG and the ruling political party PYD terrorist organizations and branches of the PKK. Ottoman Turkish forces, working with Syrian militias of the FSA, launched a military campaign against Afrin on January 20 with the stated aim of pushing the Kurdish groups back from the Syria-Turkey border.

Turkey declared it was in full control of the canton two months later. The YPG announced they would continue the fight, launching a guerrilla-style war.

At least 137,000 civilians remain displaced and unable to return to their homes. Hundreds of rebels and their families evacuated from the Eastern Ghouta area have been resettled in Afrin.

Turkey has been accused of demographic change.

Turkey, however, has blamed the YPG and PYD for forcing the people out of their homes and has claimed that Afrin civilians are now returning home.

On Friday, Ottoman Turkish President Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
... Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey...
said that 4,379 "terrorists" had been "neutralized" in Afrin. Turkey uses the term "neutralized" to refer to those killed, maimed, or otherwise removed from the battle field.
