US Airstrikes in Afghanistan Continue Despite Peace Deal Progress
[ToloNews] US Arclight airstrike
s in Afghanistan continued at a steady rate in February, despite reaching a peace deal with the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
, as counter-terror operations targeted ISIS and al-Qaeda.

According to Air Forces Central Command statistics released March 12, in February, US manned and unmanned aircraft dropped 360 weapons‐the lowest monthly total since the same month of 2019, but the second highest February on record since 2009. The total, down from January’s 415 tally, brings 2020’s total to 775 so far.

So far this year, US aircraft have airdropped 62,500 pounds of supplies, and flown 2,340 airlift and airdrop sorties, both at approximately the same rate as 2019, according to a report by Air Force Magazine.

The US and the Taliban signed a peace deal in Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
on Feb. 19 after 18-month negotiations. As part of this, the Taliban will not target international forces in the country.

i army front man Brigadier General Yahya Sarie on Wednesday revealed details of the operation "Amkn Minhum", which resulted in the liberation of Jawf province and strengthened the military position of the army forces and popular committees.

"By liberating Jawf province, we have confirmed our ability to impose new equations in a different geographical reality, on more than one front, and during a record period," Sarei said in a presser held this afternoon.

Fresh fighting in Yemen’s Marib province leaves dozens dead
[al-Monitor] Fierce festivities in 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...
between pro-government forces and Iran's Houthi sock puppets
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The legitimate Yemeni government has accused the them of having ties to the Iranian government. Honest they did. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews They like shooting off... ummm... missiles that they would have us believe they make at home in their basements. On the plus side, they did murder Ali Abdullah Saleh, which was the only way the country was ever going to be rid of him...
rebels on Tuesday killed dozens of people on both sides. The deadly violence in Marib province left at least 38 fighters dead, according to officials who spoke with the News Agency that Dare Not be Named.

After more than three months of relative calm, the Iran-aligned Houthis are advancing on the oil rich-provinces of Marib and Jawf.

Earlier this month, the Houthis took control of Hazm, the capital of Jawf province in northern Yemen, in a major setback to the Saudi-backed government. The festivities in Jawf displaced around 70,000 people to neighboring Marib province, according to the International Red Thingy.

Political analyst and Sanaa-based researcher Abdul-Bari Taher says the fighting has reached a tipping point.

"The situation is heading toward dangerous escalation because the war has now reached a point of explosion," Taher told al-Monitor.

The renewed fighting in north and central Yemen threatens to worsen the humanitarian crisis in the world’s poorest nation, which has been ravaged by war since 2014 when the Houthis, backed by Iran, took control of Yemen's capital and captured large swaths of the country from pro-government forces.

Migrants at Refugee Camp in Germany Riot, Display ISIS Flags After They’re Put Under Coronavirus Quarantine
[SummitNews] Moslem colonists Migrants housed at a refugee camp in Germany began rioting, displayed the ISIS flag and subsequently tried to escape after they were put under a coronavirus
...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men...

After a migrant tested positive for coronavirus at the facility in Suhl, Thuringia, a quarantine was ordered for the other 533 residents and the camp was sealed off.

"But the measure, which in times of Corona seems not at all unusual, apparently drove the asylum seekers to a fury," reports Compact Online. "Some of them started rioting and prevented inmates from entering the dining hall in order to force a hunger strike. They are said to have tried to leave the facility through the sewers to get to the nearby town."

According to police front man Wolfgang Nicola, the migrants colonists then gathered at the front gate and began threatening to burn down the facility while displaying ISIS flags.

Why they even have possession of ISIS flags in the first place is shocking.

50 coppers were dispatched to the scene to quell the riots. The same migrant camp was also the scene of riots back in 2015 in response to a man tearing pages out of the Koran.

"The danger that Corona will also break out in other shelters is omnipresent, a further restriction of public life is to be expected," states the report. "It is hard to imagine that the capacities of the security forces and medical staff are sufficient to keep at bay angry illegal immigrants colonists who do not want to comply with the protective measures against the spread of COVID-19."

"If the Wuhan virus leads to major social unrest in Germany, the country’s multitudinous "refugees" are likely to play a major role," warns Dave Blount.

As we highlighted yesterday, migrants colonists in Naples, Italia are completely ignoring the quarantine order to stay indoors and are roaming around the streets.

4 military personnel martyred during operation on militant hideout in North Waziristan
[DAWN] A lieutenant, two sepoys and a lance havaldar were martyred while seven bad boyz were potted in an operation on a holy warrior hideout near Datta Khel, North Wazoo, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Wednesday.

Those martyred include 26-year-old Lt Agha Muqadas Ali Khan, 36-year-old Lance Havaldar Qamar Nadeem, 24-year-old Sepoy Muhammad Qasim and 23-year-old Sepoy Touseef.

According to the military's media wing, security forces had conducted an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Mama Ziarat after receiving confirmed reports of a holy warrior hideout in the area. An exchange of fire took place between the troops, who had cordoned the area, and the terrorists, who were trying to escape.

One soldier was also injured, ISPR said in its statement.

The armed forces recovered a "large cache" of weapons, improvised bombs and ammunition from the hideout after it was cleared, the statement added.
