Three Saudi bases, over 150 square kilometers taken in 2nd phase of Najran offensive
[PRESSTV] The front man for 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...
i Armed Forces says three Saudi military bases and more than 150 square kilometers of land have been taken during the second phase of a recent large-scale military offensive carried out by Yemeni Army troops and allied fighters from Popular Committees in the kingdom’s southern border region of Najran
a city in southwestern Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
near the border with Yemen. It is the capital of the province of the same name, a favored target of Houthi rocket forces because they can see it, so there's no math involved....
Speaking at a presser in the capital Sana’a on Tuesday evening, Brigadier General Yahya Saree said video footage recorded by Yemeni forces on the second phase of Victory from God Almighty Operation attests to their full control over the Saudi military sites and seizure of considerable amounts of munitions. The offensive also resulted in the death and injury of at least 200 Saudi-led coalition soldiers.

Saree added that the second phase of the operation was launched on September 3, and that more than 150 square kilometers were purged from the presence of Saudi troopers and Saudi-sponsored Yemeni murderous Moslems loyal to Yemen's former pro-Saudi president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. More than 120 armored vehicles were destroyed and seized in the process as well.

He said Yemeni missile defense units carried out six operations in the military campaign, most notably against Najran Regional Airport, while domestically-manufactured Yemeni combat drones struck positions inside Najran on 16 different occasions.

Arrested HujiB leader met Osama bin Laden
[Dhaka Tribune] Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami Bangladesh (HuJI
Founded in 1984 by Fazlur Rehman Khalil and Qari Saifullah Aktar. The Bangla branch was established in 1992 with assistance from Osama bin Laden. Recruits come mostly from Deobandi madrassahs. HuJI and Fazlur Rehman Khalil are signators of bin Laden's declaration of war on civilization.
B) leader Mohammad Atiqullah, an Afghan-war returnee, met al-Qaeda leader the late Osama bin Laden
...... who is now among the dear departed, though not among the dearest......
in Afghanistan during the war that started in 2001.

Atiqullah, who was arrested in Dhaka on Wednesday, had multiple meetings with top krazed killer leaders, including Laden, Mullah Mohammad Blinky Omar
...a minor Pashtun commander in the war against the Soviets who made good as leader of the Taliban. As ruler of Afghanistan, he took the title Leader of the Faithful. The imposition of Pashtunkhwa on the nation institutionalized ignorance and brutality in a country already notable for its own fair share of ignorance and brutality.

He lost major face when he ordered the nascent Islamic State to cease and desist and merge with the orthodox al-Qaeda spring, al-Nusra...
, according to police.

Bin Laden, who ordered the September 11 attacks in 2001, was killed by US forces during a raid in Abbottabad
... A pleasant city located only 30 convenient miles from Islamabad. The city is noted for its nice weather and good schools. It is the site of Pakistain's military academy, which was within comfortable walking distance of the residence of the late Osama bin Laden....
, Pakistain, in May 2011.

On Wednesday evening, the Dhaka Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit picked up Atiqullah, alias Asadullah, alias Zulfiqar, 49, and two of his associates, Mohammad Borhan Uddin Rabbani, 42, and Mohammad Nazim Uddin, alias Shamim, 43, from a playground near Boro Mosque in Nikunja 2.

During interrogation, Atiqullah told them about his meetings with bin Laden and other krazed killer leaders and his ties to al-Qaeda, according to CTTC sources.

Informed that several HuJIB men had gathered at a playground for a secret meeting, a CTTC team conducted a raid there, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Deputy Commissioner (Media) Masudur Rahman,on Thursday.

He also said Atiqullah was an organizing secretary of the committee of HuJIB formed by Mufti Hannan in 1996, and was later assigned to oversee the Baitul Mal and International Relations Department of the organization.

CTTC sources said that during the tenure of the last caretaker government, he went into hiding in Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
and visited Pakistain multiple times for krazed killer activities.

in primary interrogation, police learned that Atiqullah has connections with krazed killer groups in other countries, including Pakistain, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, sources at the CTTC said.

A CTTC official related to the investigation said Atiqullah also told police that he is a bomb specialist. After being exiled abroad for long, he returned to Bangladesh in March this year, and had been trying to contact old members of the krazed killer outfit to reorganize it.

He also had been trying to recruit new members to speed up HuJIB's activities in the upcoming days, he said.

The CTTC official said Atiqullah also made organizational visits to various places across the country, and raised money from both domestic and foreign sources, to mobilize the organization.

Najim, one of two other persons arrested besides Atiqullah, is a secretary of the HuJIB Dhaka Metropolitan South unit, while the other person arrested, Rabbani was given the responsibility of handling Feni district.

Recently, the three, Atiqullah, Najim, and Rabbani, were trying to reorganize the group, focusing on India's Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
and Rohingya issues, said the official.

DC Masudur Rahman said a case has been filed in this connection with Khilkhet cop shoppe under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

#10  Deaf Islamic convert is named as Paris police HQ attacker: IT worker who fell out with supervisor 'after he refused to deal with women' slaughters four colleagues, including female officer, with a knife - as police arrest Muslim wife

[DailyMail] A deaf civilian police worker who had recently converted to Islam was shot dead in Paris today after murdering four colleagues with a ceramic knife following a 'dispute over working with female colleagues'.

Michael Harpon, 45, caused the bloodbath in the French capital's historic Police Prefecture, next door to Notre Dame Cathedral.

Investigators have not ruled out a possible terrorist motivation for the Thursday afternoon attack, which left a woman and three men dead.

All were repeatedly stabbed by Harpon, who had worked in the IT department at the Prefecture since 2003, in the worst loss of French police lives in a single day since World War II.

Harpon had recently been reprimanded by his female boss over his refusal to interact with women, reported.

Within hours of the attack, anti-terrorist officers had raided Harpon's flat in an apartment block at Gonesse, a suburb some 12 miles from the scene of the attack.

His wife, Iham, was arrested, as an investigating source said that the nature of Harpon's attack corresponded with similar ones carried out by terrorists affiliated to Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

'An investigation has been launched into a grudge the assailant may have held against his colleagues, but terrorism cannot be ruled out,' said the source.

'Many of those involved in similar attacks on the police have been Muslim converts influenced by radical terrorist groups.'

Christophe Crépin, spokesman for the union France Police Policeman in Anger, told : 'I know this man. He worked in IT and he had long-running problems with his superior. He stabbed her first and then colleagues intervened and were stabbed as well. I am told he then got hold of a firearm.'

Harpon, who was deaf since childhood, was originally from the Caribbean island of Martinique – a French overseas territory.

He had been married since 2014, and converted to his wife's religion in 2018 before they had their first child together.

An eye witness to the attack, which happened just after 1pm, said: 'I saw a man with a knife in his hand.

'He was running after a policeman. He was told to drop his knife, but he did not stop and the policeman fired.

'At first I thought it was a training exercise, but no. The policeman, who was on a break, shouted out three warnings, but the assailant would not stop. The police officer fired two shots and then the assailant fell.'

Harpon originally attacked three male officers in two offices on the first floor of the Prefecture, and then took his knife to two females – one died, and another was seriously injured.

None of Harpon's victims have been identified by name.

A ceramic knife would not have activated metal detectors, and Harpon would not have been searched.

Harpon worked directly to the Directorate of Intelligence of the Prefecture of Police, or DRPP.

Military intelligence kill IS leader, four aides in northern Iraq
Even in the midst of the more or less spontaneous popular uprising, ISIS still needs to be dealt with.
Salahuddin (IraqiNews.com) ‐ Iraqi military intelligence announced on Wednesday that a notorious leader of 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....
murderous Moslem group and four of his aides were killed during a military operation in Salahuddin province, north of Iraq.

"Troops of the Iraqi Military Intelligence Directorate, in cooperation with the 88th brigade of the Popular Mobilization Forces and the Iraqi Air Force, carried out a military operation in Hamrin Mountains in Salahuddin, leaving an IS leader and four of his aides dead," Alghad Press quoted the directorate as saying in a press statement.

The IS leader was identified as Talib Garw al Azzawy, the directorate said.

The troops also destroyed nine terrorist hotbeds in the operation, added the statement.

Iraq declares curfews as gunfights rage and protests spread nationwide
The shape of Wednesday’s events is emerging from the fog. Scroll up and down through the articles and tweets (thanks, 3dc and Fred!) under the Iraq heading, and also a report of Iran flying in militias from their part of the world, which can be seen here. Yesterday’s report of Tuesday’s events can be seen here.
[Jpost] Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi on Wednesday declared a curfew in Baghdad until further notice after at least seven people were killed and more than 400 were maimed during two days of nationwide anti-government protests.

Curfews were imposed earlier in three southern cities while elite counter-terrorism troops opened fire on protesters trying to storm Baghdad airport and deployed to the southern city of Nassiriya after shootouts broke out between protesters and security forces, police sources said.

"All vehicles and individuals are totally forbidden to move in Baghdad as of 5 am today, Thursday, and until further notice," Abdul Mahdi said in a written statement.

Iraqi police fire in air during new protests in Baghdad
Hit it with every shot, too.
[PRESSTV] Riot police in Iraq have fired live rounds into the air and used tear gas to disperse protesters, who erupted into the streets in the capital, Baghdad, for a second consecutive day against what they describe as unemployment and poor public services.

Police opened fire in the al-Shaab neighborhood of north Baghdad and in Zaafaraniya, in the south, on Wednesday.

At least eight people were maimed during the protest in Zafaraniya, police sources said.

About 200 people took part in the rally in northern Baghdad and blocked a key highway linking the capital to northern cities. Police and the army deployed to the area to disperse them, according to police and eyewitnesses.

This came one day after police used tear gas, water cannon, and live rounds to prevent "groups of riot inciters" from crossing a bridge leading into Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone, which houses government buildings and foreign embassies.

IDF arrests Palestinians who crossed Gaza border fence
