Afghanistan
8 Security Incidents Reported on Sixth Day of RIV: Officials
[ToloNews] Along with a security incident in Balkh that claimed an Afghan policeman's life, on the sixth day of the reduction in violence plan (RIV) there was also twin blasts in Kabul, three reported incidents in Herat
...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns...
, and the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
claimed two IED attacks on government forces vehicles in Kandahar.

The incident in Balkh occurred when a police convoy struck a roadside mine, according to the MoI: "...A roadside mine in Chimtal district of Balkh province targeted a convoy of police and, as a result, one brave officer was martyred," said Nasrat Rahimi, a front man for the Ministry of Interior.

Also on Thursday afternoon one civilian was killed and 10 were maimed in twin blasts from IEDs placed on bicycles that detonated in PD6 of Kabul city. The Taliban claimed no involvement in this incident.

There were also two Taliban-reported incidents in Kandahar of government forces vehicles striking roadside mines. The group did not give any details about the casualties.

Local officials in Herat reported three security incidents in their province.

"Over the past 24 hours, three security violations were reported in districts in Herat. A retired colonel was kidnapped and there were some attacks and firing on the security forces in Shindand district," said Ghulam Jailani Farhad, a front man for the governor of Herat.

In the northern part of Afghanistan, a number of civil society activists came into the streets and announced their support for the reduction in violence plan.

"We hope that this one week (RIV) leads to a permanent ceasefire in Afghanistan," said Tahmina Aryan, a woman rights activist in Badakhshan.

"Casualties have significantly dropped, the people are very optimistic, now it depends on the politicians and how they want to take advantage of this opportunity so that the negotiations are started next week once the agreement (US-Taliban agreement) is signed," Sayed Qaribullah Sadat, a member of Pashtun-infested Logar provincial council, told TOLOnews.

Turkey activates article 4 of Nato
[Twitter]





Article 4
The Parties will consult together whenever, in the opinion of any of them, the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened.

When you invade another country, it's tough spit if somebody shoots back. Erdogan's cynicism is awe-inspiring.

#1  Your guys were on someone else's turf? (Not sure whose, but not yours.) Not defense. Too bad, so sad, Yipyip. You want the Turkish empire sultanate back, spend your own blood and treasure.

#2  territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the Parties is threatened

territorial integrity? Nope
political independence? Ha ha ha
security? You've got it backwards, Yipster. Your "security" is your neighbors' (and other nations' insecurity.

#9  Turkey and Syria sure seem to be heading toward full scale war. Saw some reports that Turk UAVs destroyed around 100 Syrian armored vehicles/artillery overnight. Also attacking infantry.

#10  I told Erdogan that the Turks and Russkies were traditional enemies, but did he listen? Nooooo!
Posted by: Spot || 02/28/2020 14:57 Comments || Top||

#11  Turkey needs to be kicked out of NATO. They have proven themselves under Erdogan to be no friend of the West, further, attacking another country then crying because they struck back can hardly be considered a valid reason to invoke article 4.

#9  The death of Qasem Soleimani only two months ago by a missile fired from hell was terrible.
Soleimani's death by a hellfire was as bad as the death of Jamal Khashoggi in a Saudi consulate.

US grants sanctions waiver to ease humanitarian trade to Iran
[THEBAGHDADPOST] The United States on Thursday granted a license to allow for certain humanitarian trade transactions with Iran's sanctioned central bank, a move it said was in step with the formalization of a Swiss humanitarian trade channel.

The newly created channel, which the US Treasury Department said became fully operational on Thursday as it granted the license, would allow for companies to send food, medicine and other critical supplies to Iran.

""The Swiss Humanitarian Trade Arrangement will help ensure that humanitarian goods continue to reach the Iranian people without diversion by the regime," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
