700 Attacks Launched on Lashkargah in 3 Weeks: ANA Commander
[ToloNews] The Taliban
...Arabic for students...
has conducted roughly 700 attacks on the city of Lashkargah in the southern province of Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
over the last three weeks, an army commander said, adding that the group was "helped by al-Qaeda gunnies" in their attacks on the southern city.

The 215 Maiwand Corps Commander, Gen. Sami Sadat, said that nearly '30 al-Qaeda gunnies' were killed in Afghan force operations that were conducted in response to the Taliban attacks and that the military has gathered evidence of their identities along with other documents.

The attacks were mostly focused on Lashkargah City’s District 10 and District 3 — on the outskirts of the city — and parts of these two areas temporarily fell to the Taliban.

"Al-Qaeda gunnies have fought against our troops on the frontlines. At least 30 of them have been killed in the festivities in the last three weeks," Gen. Sadat said.

Helmand officials said that at least 4,500 families were displaced during the festivities and sought shelter in other parts of Lashkargah.

"We have pushed the enemies back from the city and we are pursuing them to take more (territory) back," said Hedayat Rasuli, a battalion commander for the border forces.

"The enemy is beyond those walls. They are seen there sometimes," said Ebadullah, a police soldier.

Turkish agents snatch nephew of Erdogan foe in Kenya
[IsraelTimes] Selahaddin Gulen brought to The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the decaying remnant of the Ottoman Empire...
after being captured overseas; his uncle, US-based holy man Fethullah Gülen
... a Turkish preacher living in Pennsylvania whom the current govt of Turkey considers responsible for all the ills afflicting Turkey and possibly the entire world. Gülen and Erdogan used to be really good friends, but only one of them could be sultan, and Gülen lost...
, is accused by Erdogan of criminal masterminding failed coup in 2016

Ottoman Turkish spies have snatched in Kenya a nephew of a longtime foe of President His Enormity, 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. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than there are in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really most important...
and have brought him back to Turkey, media and family said on Monday.

Ankara accuses US-based Moslem preacher Fethullah Gulen of criminal masterminding a failed coup in 2016 that left hundreds dead and thousands more injured. Since 2016, Turkey has arrested tens of thousands of people suspected to have links to Gulen.

Ottoman Turkish state news agency Anadolu reported that Selahaddin Gulen was brought back to Turkey by agents from Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT), quoting unnamed security sources, but did not say where he had been arrested.

In a video posted on social media on May 20, Selahaddin’s wife confirmed that the couple lived in Kenya and that she had not heard from her husband, who taught at a school in Nairobi, since May 3.

Individuals and media linked to Gulen’s movement said on social media that Selahaddin had been "kidnapped" in Kenya, as they launched a campaign calling for his release.

Selahaddin Gulen is accused of belonging to the "FETO terrorist organization," the description used by Ankara for Fethullah Gulen’s movement.

"We will soon announce the capture of a very important FETO member. He is in our hands," Erdogan said on May 19, a likely reference to Selahaddin Gulen.

The preacher, who lives in Pennsylvania, insists that he is the head of a peaceful network of charities and companies, and denies any links to the 2016 coup bid.

But Erdogan, who once was allied with Gulen, describes him today as the leader of a "terrorist" group which seeks to infiltrate and overthrow his government.

Since the failed coup, Turkey has "repatriated" dozens of people accused of belonging to Gulen’s network, regardless of the repercussions such actions may cause abroad.

The kidnapping of six Ottoman Turkish nationals in Kosovo by MIT agents in 2018 sparked a political crisis in the Balkan country, leading to the sacking of its interior minister and intelligence chief.

Ankara has also put pressure on many countries, especially in the Balkans, Central Asia and Africa, to close schools linked to the "Gulenist" movement.

Kenya refused in 2016 to close six establishments despite Ankara’s insistence.

It was not immediately clear whether Selahaddin Gulen was seized with the agreement of the Kenyan authorities.

In 1999, Ottoman Turkish services arrested the leader of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), Abdullah Ocalan, in Kenya. Ocalan remains imprisoned in Turkey.

The PKK has waged an insurgency against Turkey since 1984 and is blacklisted by Ankara’s Western allies.

The raids continue against alleged Gulen members, with almost daily police operations to arrest suspects across the country.

Since 2016, more than 140,000 public sector workers including teachers and judges have also been sacked or suspended over suspected Gulen ties.

At least 39 dead in two attacks in eastern DR Congo
[AlAhram] At least 39 people have been killed in two new attacks in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo
...formerly the Congo Free State, Belgian Congo, Zaire, and who knows what else, not to be confused with the Brazzaville Congo aka Republic of Congo, which is much smaller and much more (for Africa) stable. DRC gave the world Patrice Lumumba and Joseph Mobutu, followed by years of tedious civil war. Its principle industry seems to be the production of corpses. With a population of about 74 million it has lots of raw material...
, monitors said Monday, as a local official blamed a notorious group linked to 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....

"At least 20 non-combatants were killed overnight in the village of Boga and at least 19 in the village of Tchabi," in Irumu territory in Ituri province, the Kivu Security Tracker (KST) group said.

A local civil society leader attributed the attacks to the Allied Democratic Forces
...the ADF is one of several murderous Moslem groups in NE Congo. In 2019 the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions on them for the usual reasons. They don't appear to be affiliated with al-Qaeda or Islamic State, though ISIS claims their work from time to time — they just like killing infidels...
(ADF) -- a historically Ugandan Islamist group blamed for a string of massacres in the past 18 months.

Two local officials reached in Boga by AFP said the assailants attacked a camp for displaced people. They said 36 bodies had been found so far in Boga, a figure that had yet to be independently confirmed.

The two villages are located about 10 kilometres (six miles) apart on the border between North Kivu province and Ituri, an area that has long had a reputation for ADF attacks and ethnic friction.

The KST, a respected NGO that monitors violence in eastern DRC, said the wife of a traditional leader in Benyali-Tchabi had been killed in the attack on Tchabi.

The ADF is the deadliest of an estimated 122 armed militias that roam the mineral-rich east of the DRC, many of them a legacy of two regional wars that ran from 1996 to 2003.

As of Friday, the KST estimated that at least 1,228 civilians have been killed in Beni territory of North Kivu alone since November 2019, when DRC forces launched a crackdown, splintering the ADF into smaller groups.

The latest deaths brought the toll from ADF-suspected killings to at least 78 in six days. Three other attacks since last Tuesday have claimed 39 lives.

On March 11, the United States said the ADF was linked to the Islamic State group (IS), which is also known by the acronym ISIS. The ADF was called ISIS-DRC, or Madina at Tauheed Wau Mujahedeen.

DRC President Felix Tshisekedi on May 6 proclaimed a 30-day "state of siege" in North Kivu and Ituri in a bid to curb bloodshed by the ADF.

Under the move, military and coppers have taken over from civilian authorities.

Attacks On Nigerian Police Officers Continue - 12 Killed in Past Two Weeks

Over three dozen coppers have been killed in the past two months in assassinations on coppers and facilities. The attacks have occurred mainly in the South-east and South-south regions of Nigeria.

The police and other security agencies have blamed the attacks on IPOB,
...the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is a Biafran separatist organization in Nigeria. Supporters of IPOB are exclusively Igbo...
an outlawed secessionist group, and its security network, ESN. The group has, however, denied any involvement.

Dozens of suspected members of the ESN have been killed or arrested as security agencies move to quell the attacks. The Nigerian Army last week announced that its officials had arrested another top ESN official.

To prevent further attacks and restore peace in the South-east and South-south regions, the acting inspector general of police, Usman Alkali, last week launched a new outfit 'Operation Restore Peace' in the two regions.

More footage on Yemen army looting of Soddy positions in Jizan

The Yemeni army and the fighters from the Popular Committees have released new videos of a major operation carried out on May 28 against Saudi forces and Riyadh’s mercenaries.

More than 70 mercenaries were killed, the report said. At least 32 armored vehicles were also damaged.

#1  The saudi arabian flag contains the shahada, the same shit on the ISIS flag. It is the islamic creed used by most jihaders. I am willing to bet you'll find a quran somewhere in that house, or his office locker or something. And in his computer a trail to a friend he made in the last two months or so.

#5  I don't want to see another bonehead shooting up a Walmart. radical ideology paraphernalia? However, most of this stuff doesn't rise to the level of evidence (and certainly not proof) of a crime. The concentrated THC might be the exception if it is a felony in TX.

However, in today's climate, who knows? Justice and the Constitution have taken severe hits.

2 Palestinians charged with terrorism for rock attack that injured baby
[IsraelTimes] Indictment accuses East Jerusalem suspects of assailing a car carrying a Jewish family due to ’nationalistic-ideological and racist motive’

Prosecutors on Monday filed terror charges against two Paleostinian men for throwing rocks at a car during festivities in Jerusalem earlier this month, lightly injuring a 7-month-old Jewish baby, who was struck in the head.

The suspects, residents of East Jerusalem’s A-Tur neighborhood ages 18 and 20, were indicted on suspicion of a terrorist act of aggravated sabotage, a terrorist act of throwing a rock at a vehicle, and intentionally damaging a car for racist motives.

Police announced the arrest of the two last week and prosecutors requested they remain in jug until the end of the legal proceedings.

According to the indictment, the baby was in the car with her parents as they drove from the Mount of Olives to Mount Scopus on the morning of May 10, when the father had to slow down while driving through A-Tur due to traffic.

The family was spotted by the suspects, who the indictment alleges then pelted the car with rocks "out of a nationalistic-ideological and racist motive."

The rocks broke the windshield and one of them struck the baby in the head.

The incident occurred on Jerusalem Day, when major festivities erupted between Paleostinian rioters and police on the Temple Mount amid escalating Israeli-Paleostinian tensions over the city. Later that day, 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...
-ruling Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", terror group fired volleys of rockets toward Jerusalem and elsewhere in Israel, touching off 11 days of hostilities in the coastal enclave and days of rioting in ethnically mixed localities in Israel.
