Tunisia Arrests 5 over Attack near U.S. Embassy
[AnNahar] Five people have been arrested in Tunisia over a double suicide kaboom that killed a police officer near the US embassy in Tunis last week, the prosecution said Tuesday.

Two jacket wallahs struck outside the embassy on Friday, wounding six other people and again shaking a city repeatedly hit by jihadist violence.

The five detainees were arrested on Saturday and are being held at a cop shoppe in the capital's El Gorjani district specializing in anti-terrorism investigations, front man Sofiene Sliti told AFP.

Tunisian media have reported that the two suicide bombers were men from Tunis who had served their sentences after being found guilty on terror charges in 2014.

The attack on Friday at midday rocked the Berges du Lac district hosting the highly fortified embassy, causing panic among pedestrians and motorists.

A video shared later on social media shows two men in sports clothes and with caps on their heads riding a scooter up to a police van then pausing for a few seconds before a kaboom.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack and authorities have not announced any other advances in their investigations.

Tunisia has been hit by multiple jihadist attacks since the 2011 uprising that toppled longtime dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

A string of deadly attacks in 2015 killed dozens of foreign tourists and security personnel. An attack that year that killed 12 presidential guards prompted authorities to announce a state of emergency that has remained in place ever since.

90 Migrants Found Packed in Tractor-Trailer at Texas Border Checkpoint
[BREITBART] Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents stopped a collection of 90 migrants colonists from being smuggled into the U.S. interior. The cartel-connected smugglers locked 90 migrants colonists, including five unaccompanied juveniles, inside a tractor-trailer.

Laredo North Station agents assigned to the Interstate 35 immigration checkpoint on the night of March 5 observed a gray tractor pulling a white trailer approaching for inspection. During an initial inspection, a K-9 agent alerted to the possible presence of drug or human cargo in the rear of the trailer, according to information obtained from Laredo Sector Border Patrol officials.

The agents directed the driver, a U.S. citizen, to move the rig to a secondary inspection station. There, agents conducted a search of the trailer and found 90 people locked inside. The migrants colonists included five unaccompanied alien children, officials stated.

After removing the illegal immigrants colonists from the trailer, the agents conducted immigration interviews and determined they came to the United States from the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.

The agents arrested the driver, the 90 migrants colonists, and seized the tractor-trailer. All were turned over to Homeland Security Investigations for processing and possible federal prosecution on human smuggling and illegal immigration charges.

The Interstate 35 immigration checkpoint is frequently the scene of failed human smuggling attempts. Agents frequently find large groups of migrants colonists crammed into the rear of tractor-trailer rigs and other cargo trucks where they have no means of escape in the event of a crash or abandonment by the human smugglers.

US carrying out retaliatory strikes in #Iraq in response to a rocket attack on Wednesday that killed two US troops and a British service member

British army also takes part in strikes on Kataeb Hezbollah weapons facility day after missiles fired at base kill 3 troops.

The US launched Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...

US officials said multiple strikes by US fighter jets hit five locations and mainly targeted Kataeb Hezbollah

weapons facilities inside Iraq. A Defense Department statement said the strikes targeted five weapons storage facilities "to significantly degrade their ability to conduct future attacks."

US officials said the locations of the strikes were largely around the Baghdad region. One US official said there were two strikes at Jurf al-Sakher, one in Karbala, one at al-Musayib, and one at Arab Nawar Ahmad. The official said the US expected casualties would be lower than 50, and said the main effort was to hit the weapons.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because some details about the operations had not yet been made public.

An official with the paramilitary Popular Mobilization Units told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named that two Iraqi federal police personnel were killed in Jurf al-Sakher. An Iraqi military statement said the aerial "aggression" occurred at 1:15 a.m. in the areas of Jurf al-Sakher, al-Musayib, Najaf and Alexandria on the headquarters of the Popular Mobilization Units, emergency regiments and commandos of the 9th division of the Iraqi army.

The strikes marked a rapid escalation in tensions with Tehran and its proxy groups in Iraq, just two months after Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979.

carried out a massive ballistic missile attack against American troops at a base in Iraq. They came just hours after top US defense leaders threatened retaliation for the Wednesday rocket attack, making clear that they knew who did it and that the attackers would be held accountable.

"The United States will not tolerate attacks against our people, our interests, or our allies," Defense Secretary Mark Esper said. "As we have demonstrated in recent months, we will take any action necessary to protect our forces in Iraq and the region."

The Pentagon statement said the facilities hit in the precision strikes were used to store weapons used to target the US and coalition forces. It called the counterattack "defensive, proportional and in direct response to the threat" posed by the Iranian-backed Shia militia groups.

Esper told news hounds at the Pentagon earlier Thursday that President Donald Trump
...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US...
had given him the authority to take whatever action he deemed necessary.

I wonder why there isn't some more rigor in targeting high ranking commanders and weapon storage facilities. Why a retaliation strategy? Why not a crushing campaign?

Deployment of armed opposition groups on the M4 highway
[NPASYRIA] The Ottoman Turkish-backed armed opposition groups have been deployed since Wednesday, until today on the M4 highway in the southern countryside of Idlib governorate, north-west of Syria.

A field source in Idlib told North-Press, that the armed opposition groups located in the villages near the M4 highway in the southern and western countryside of Idlib have been redeployed since yesterday on the highway, rejecting the withdrawal agreement.

The source added that the gangs are deploying from time to time on the M4 highway, sending a message to the Ottoman Turkish and Russian forces that they will not withdraw from these areas.

The areas of control of the armed opposition groups in Idlib countryside have been under tension since Wednesday, after the Ottoman Turkish statements about the withdrawal of the opposition groups from areas south of the M4 highway for the conduct of joint Russian-Ottoman Turkish military patrols.

The source said that the armed opposition groups and the residents of Arihah and Jisr al-Shughour in the southern and western countryside of Idlib are preparing to protest on the M4 highway, in order to prevent the passing of the joint Russian-Ottoman Turkish patrols.

The commander in the National Front for Liberation, Jaber Basha posted on his Twitter account: "We will remain attached to our lands, neither surrender nor give up on any inch of our liberated areas."

The Ottoman Turkish President Erdogan and the Russian President Vladimir Putin
...President-for-Life of Russia. He gets along well with other presidents for life. He is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law, which occasionally results in somebody dropping dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substance. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to him. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile or dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substances...
announced a ceasefire agreement that included the construction of a safe corridor at a depth of 6 km in the north of M4 highway and 6 km to the south, with details to be determined within seven days, as the ceasefire agreement has taken effect since March 6.

Iran likely behind attack that killed Americans in Iraq
[FOXNEWS] The head of U.S. forces in the Middle East says an Iranian-backed militia likely launched the attack killing the two Americans and a British soldier in Iraq Wednesday night.

"The Iranian proxy group Kata'eb Hezbollah is the only group known to have previously conducted an indirect fire attack of this scale against U.S. and coalition forces in Iraq," Gen. Kenneth McKenzie told Senate politicians Thursday morning.

Despite adding over 10,000 U.S. troops to the region since May, McKenzie says Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
continues its attacks against U.S. forces.

"What has not changed is their continuing desire to operate through their proxies indirectly against us," McKenzie added.

Iranian-backed Shia militia launched 18 Katyusha rockets at Camp Taji, located 17 miles north of Baghdad -- the largest attack on U.S. troops since Iran fired ballistic missiles in early January, days after a U.S. dronezap that killed Iran's most powerful general Qassem Soleimani at Baghdad's airport. Wednesday would have reportedly been Soleimani's 63rd birthday, the same day as the attack.
