23 ANDSF Killed in Taliban Attacks, Security Incidents
[ToloNews] At least 23 members of the Afghan cops have been killed and dozens more were maimed in multiple Taliban
...Arabic for students...
attacks on the first day of Ramadan.
Happy Ramadan!
The attacks were carried out in Balkh, Badakhshan, Pashtun-infested Logar, Baghlan and Takhar provinces.

Ten soldiers were killed in Balkh, three in Pashtun-infested Logar, six in Baghlan, one in Takhar and three in Badakhshan.

Religious scholars said that the continuation of war in Afghanistan, particularly during Ramadan, is against Islamic principles.

On Tuesday at least three non-combatants were killed and 24 were maimed--18 civilians and six police--in a boom-mobile explosion in PD1 of Farah city, Taj Mohammad Jahed, the governor of Farah, told TOLOnews.

"There is fear the casualties will rise," he said.

At least 10 members of the Afghan National Army (ANA) were killed and three more were maimed in a Taliban attack in the northern province of Balkh on Monday night, local sources said on Tuesday. The attack took place on an outpost in Sar Asyab village of the Chimtal district of Balkh province, the sources said, adding that "five other security force members were taken hostage by the Taliban."

Local officials have not commented on the attack.

The Taliban has grabbed credit for the attack.

The 209 Shaheen Army Corps confirmed the death of 5 soldiers.

Security officials said that 7 Taliban fighters were also eliminated.

Based on the statistics by the Ministry of Interior, in the past three weeks, Afghanistan witnessed 1,400 security incidents and Taliban attacks in which 60 non-combatants were killed and 164 more were maimed including women and kiddies.

But the Taliban has denied its involvement.
Local sources in Badakhshan said, three Afghan National Army members were shot and killed by the Talibs on the first day of Ramadan in the Zibak district of the province.

Nik Mohammad Nazari, front man for the governor of Badakhshan told the media that the incident happened on Tuesday morning in "Tizab" village of Zibak district.

According to Nazari, the killed soldiers had come to Badakhshan from Paktia and Kandahar provinces to spend their holidays with their family members.

...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
reportedly captured the ANA soldiers on their way to Warduj district, before getting shot, two of the killed soldiers were cousins.

This comes despite peace efforts, bloodshed in the month of Ramadan is against the values of humanity.

[Garowe] The Somali National Army (SNA) said Monday its elite forces (Danab) killed 25 al-Shabaab
...... Somalia's version of the Taliban, functioning as an arm of al-Qaeda...
murderous Moslems and injured several others during an operation at Gambole about 48 km to Jowhar town, the administrative capital of Hirshabelle State.

Hassan Mohammed Osman, acting commander of Danab said the troops will intensify sting operations in the area to flush out the snuffies blamed for insecurity in the region.

Osman told SNA Radio that the forces carried out the operation after getting intelligence reports about the presence of the murderous Moslems in the Gambole area who were planning to carry out terror activities in the area.

Al-Shabaab murderous Moslems did not comment on the latest military onslaught on its fighters made by the Somali commandos so far, but the operation comes as allied forces have vowed to carry out joint security patrols ahead of the holy month of Ramadan which begins on Tuesday.

Niger Seizes Record Number of Weapons from Libya
[LIBYAREVIEW] On Sunday, Niger security forces said they have seized two cars coming from Libya, carrying 77 Kalashnikov rifles, two pistols, two missiles, and more than 30,000 ammunition rounds.

The security forces in the city of Ingal in northern Niger, chased the two vehicles. One of the cars overturned on the road, with the police managing to arrest four of the smugglers. The search is still underway for two other smugglers.

According to a report disclosed by the United Nations
...an idea whose time has gone...
in February, there were an estimated 29 million weapons proliferated across Libya, making it the largest stockpile of uncontrolled weapons in the world. This has negatively affected its neighbours including Chad, Niger, and Mali.

In February 2020, the President of the African Union
...a union consisting of 53 African states, most run by dictators of one flavor or another. The only all-African state not in the AU is Morocco. Established in 2002, the AU is the successor to the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which was even less successful...
Commission, Moussa Faki stressed that the situation in Libya could make it a center for arms distribution throughout the continent.

Cops declare Minneapolis protests unlawful as they clash with demonstrators outside of police station after the boarded-up home of cop Kimberly Potter who shot Daunte Wright dead was targeted
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Cop Kimberly Potter is said to have confused her gun for a taser when she shot at Daunte Wright Sunday

  • Her home was barricaded up Tuesday after a police source said that they anticipate protests there

  • Curfews are in place for Brooklyn Center, Minneapolis, St. Paul and surrounding areas from 10pm local time

  • About 90 minutes before the curfew deadline, state police announced over a loudspeaker that the gathering outside the Brooklyn Center police station had been declared unlawful and ordered the crowds to disperse

  • Cops used pepper spray and flash bombs to try to disperse the crowd; protesters used umbrellas as shields

  • Wright's killing, just 10 miles from the scene of George Floyd's death last May in Minneapolis, has led to unrest in Minnesota and nationwide; the trial of Derek Chauvin, charged in Floyd's death, is ongoing in the city

  • Protests also broke out overnight Tuesday in New York, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Portland and Seattle

Veteran Minneapolis cop Kimberly Potter 'will be charged tomorrow' for shooting dead Daunte Wright, 20, during traffic stop after she and the Brooklyn Center chief of police both resign as city erupts in protest

BLM's Latest Martyred Saint: Daunte Wright Had A Warrant Out For His Arrest For Attempted Aggravated Robbery Charges After 'choking And Holding A Woman At Gunpoint For $820 In 2019
[Daily Mail, etc]
  • Daunte Wright was shot dead by Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kimberly Potter Sunday after he was pulled over for 'expired license plate tags'

  • DailyMail.com can reveal that Wright, 20, had a warrant out for his arrest for attempted aggravated robbery charges at the time

  • Charging papers allege Wright and a second man, Emajay Driver, attended a party in December 2019 at the home of two women in Osseo, Minnesota

  • The women allowed the pair to crash after they said they didn't have a ride home

  • The next morning, after one of the women went to withdraw $820 in rent money, Wright allegedly held her at gunpoint and demanded she give him the cash

  • His bail was originally set at $100k with orders that he should not contact the victim or any witnesses, refrain from drugs and alcohol and not have any weapon

  • It was revoked in July last year due to his 'failure to not possess a firearm or ammunition' and not keeping in touch with his probation officer

  • DailyMail.com has also learned that online speculation that Wright did not know there was a warrant out for his arrest is false

#3  I wonder how many cops got shot dead because they've (mistakenly) pulled a taser instead of a gun?
Posted by: g(r)omgoru || 04/14/2021 3:16 Comments || Top||


Give this some thought.

Who released the cops address to the protestors?
Usually that's close hold info for this type reason.
A neighbor would have to be a idiot to do so because of the collateral damage likely to occur to surrounding properties. So is it City Hall and HR?

BTW: Whats the "Just 10 miles away" have to do with this?

OTHER than MEDIA trying to tie the 2 incidents together for additional INCITEMENT & Violence.

#10  In other police shooting news authorities still have not identified or pressed charges against the shooter of Ashli Babbit
Posted by: Airandee || 04/14/2021 11:54 Comments || Top||

#12  Well, I think the penalty for "driving away" should be arrest later by a SWAT outfit and piled on charges. I think people who refuse to obey cops need shot, but that's not the society we live in, nor should we want to.

Think about "high speed chases" and how often innocent people are killed during same. Negative ROI, should never happen. The cops do have radios, helicopters, etc.

All that instant, chaotic pushback against police resistance is getting us is George Floyd trials and riots. What's that line about "Same thing over and over, hoping for a different outcome next time?"

Five suspected ISIS militants arrested in Erbil: Security council
More on this story from yesterday.
[Rudaw] The Kurdistan Region’s security council on Monday announced the arrest of five suspected 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....
(ISIS) faceless myrmidons in Erbil for reportedly planning to carry out terrorist attacks inside the Region.

"During the investigations, the Lions of Islam admitted that they were planning attacks by planting (improvised bombs) and using (pistols equipped with silencers)," the security council published on Monday along with what appears to be a video confession of one of the men arrested.

"Investigations concluded that two members of the cell were not able to enter Kurdistan directly in early February 2021, so they were smuggled into Syria illegally. Then they headed to The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
and from there to Iran, and from there they entered the town of Ranya and then Erbil," the statement added.

In the released video "confession", Yasser Ali Ahmed al-Faraji says he joined ISIS in 2014 at the age of sixteen in Anbar. After the fall of ISIS in Iraq, he claims to have fled to Syria and lived at al-Hol camp "nearly a year", where he was enlisted to conduct operations in the Kurdistan Region under the leadership of the area’s head, Abu Walid.

The detainee said he, alongside other members of the cell, were smuggled back into Iraq, where he rented a house on the Makhmour road in southwest Erbil’s Mamzawa, eight kilometers away from the Kurdistan Region capital’s city center.

"He [Abu Walid] asked me to dig a hole by my house. I dug a hole in my garden and put a barrel in there so that when equipment arrived, I hid it there," said Faraji, who said the group was supposed to be sent guns and bombs.

The cell was asked to "investigate" the Makhmour road and plant bombs targeting military vehicles, but were arrested prior to receiving the equipment.

Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Region Masrour Barzani said the arrests came after a "months-long operation," urging allies and the global coalition to "recognize the seriousness of this threat, both here and abroad."

"I am deeply concerned that our intelligence points to ISIS operating from the Al Hol camp, indicating the group is still capable of crossing borders illegally," he added.

Although ISIS was territorially defeated in Iraq in 2017, remnants of the terror group remain active across the country, particularly in areas disputed between Baghdad and Erbil.

In February, Kurdish forces arrested a member of ISIS in Erbil and handed him over to Baghdad, the Kurdistan Region’s counter-terrorism directorate said.

The Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service (ICTS) in March announced that it had arrested six ISIS faceless myrmidons in two Iraqi provinces and Sulaimani province in the Kurdistan Region.

On Thursday, ISIS claimed in its weekly propaganda newspaper al-Naba that it had killed and injured at least 7 people in 4 attacks in Iraq from April 1 to 7.

ISIS revives a strategic camp between Saladin and Diyala and deploys, local officials say
[SHAFAQ] Security officials in Diyala revealed that the terrorist organization of ISIS revived "Aicha Camp" located at the border areas of Diyala with Saladin, calling for intensifying security operations at this loose area between the adjacent governorates.

The Director of Qara Tapa sub-districts, 113 kilometers to the northeast of Baquba, Hasan al-Tamimi, said in a statement to Shafaq News Agency, "Security operations are effective, but it is not sustainable. It allows ISIS operatives and leaders to flee to other remote areas and villages ahead of the operation then come back afterward."

"Preemptive security operations are thinly disguised. As if they know a priori, so they relocate to another area leaving empty headquarters, except for some equipment," he continued, "ISIS is deploying the empty headquarters tactic."

Al-Tamimi accentuated the importance of the security operations sustainability in the loose area extending between Hamrin and the borders with Saladin and Kirkuk to pursue ISIS bandidos Death Eaters posing as civilians or farmers in the villages.

The Commander of Nidaa Diyala, Ziham Ismail al-Jubouri, endorsed al-Tamimi remarks, "the 21 kilometers square area extending from Hamrin mountains in Diyala to Saladin requires comprehensive operations and heavy security presence to prevent ISIS operatives from stationing and organizing their ranks."

"Preemptive and security operations limited their efforts to return to nurturing environment," he added.

The camp is located between the borders of the two sub-districts of al-Azim and Qarah Tapa, north of Diyala. It was the largest outpost of the organization’s bandidos Death Eaters over the past years. al-Qaeda bandidos Death Eaters used to use it before that.

Although it is called a camp, it is, in fact, composed of only small caches, tunnels, and depots of weapons and explosives. It served as a major launching pad for ISIS attacks in Diyala, Kirkuk,
... a thick stew of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and probably Antarcticans, all of them mutually hostile most of the time...
and Saladin before it was destroyed in 2014.
It’s been a while...
It seems that ISIS bandidos Death Eaters have taken refuge in their old sanctuary whenever possible during recent months and then disappear again.

Iraq Upholds Death Sentences against 5 ISIS Terrorists
[ENGLISH.AAWSAT] The Iraqi judiciary sentenced five ISIS turbans to death for carrying out terrorist operations in al-Anbar and Saladin in recent years.

The Supreme Judicial Council media unit issued a statement indicating that al-Karkh Criminal Court sentenced terrorist Ammar Mahdi al-Jubouri to death by hanging in accordance with the Counter-Terrorism Law.

The statement said Jubouri was an ISIS leader in Fallujah and participated in the Albu Nimr massacre, which killed 17 civilians. He also confessed to participating in many terrorist operations.

In November 2014, ISIS carried out a massacre against the Albu Nimr tribe in the Heet district of Anbar, western Iraq, accusing them of collaborating with the authorities.

Jubouri had escaped Abu Ghraib prison in July 2013, after turbans stormed the facility and released about 500 prisoners, most of whom were prominent leaders in the al-Qaeda organization. They killed around 20 security guards.

The Judicial Council explained that Jubouri was assigned a leadership position after the terrorist organizations invaded a number of Iraqi regions in 2014 and that he fled after the liberation using a fake passport until he was arrested by Egyptian authorities and turned over to Iraq.

...back at the argument, Livia grabbed for Jane's hair to make her point. Jane elbowed her in the face in rebuttal...
the Criminal Court of Saladin handed down death sentence
...the barbaric practice of sentencing a murderer to be punished for as long as his/her/its victim is dead...
s against four convicts accused of participating in the detonation of a boom-mobile near a gas station in Tikrit
...birthplace of Saddam Hussein...

The Judiciary Council said the earth-shattering kaboom targeted the commander of Saladin regiments, which led to the death of a citizen and the injury of the commander, and 33 of his security guards.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) and other human rights
...which are usually entirely different from personal liberty...
organizations have condemned the Iraqi government for issuing death penalties.

Last January, President Barham Salih approved 340 death sentences, sparking widespread political and human rights controversy.

International human rights organizations often question the Iraqi judicial system and the political motives behind most of the verdicts issued on terrorism charges.

United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...
High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet said earlier this year that Iraq is witnessing repeated violations of the right to a fair trial and effective legal representation, with accusations of torture and ill-treatment.

Philippines: IS Sub-Leader Killed in Marawi
[BenarNews] A joint army and police team killed a sub-leader of the local chapter 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....
