Europe
French policewoman badly wounded in attack in western France UPDATE: Schizophrenic Muslim known wolf shot dead by cops
[JPost] - An assailant stabbed and badly wounded a policewoman on Friday in the town of La Chapelle-sur-Erdre in western France, a police source said on Friday.

The attacker was on the run, the police source said, and a search operation was under way.

...The assailant initially fled in a car before a crash forced him to continue his escape on foot, the police source said.

Schools in the area were under police protection, the source added.

According to BFM TV, some 50 GIGN soldiers took off from the Satory base and will join the elite gendarmes and the 15 GIGN soldiers from the Nantes branch already there, bringing the number of GIGN soldiers mobilized to 65.

The attacker stole the officer's weapon, the police source and BFM TV reported.

Update at 12:15 p.m. ET:
French man in 40s killed after attacking 3 police officers

[News4Jax] A man with
Islamic aspirations
severe schizophrenia who had been on a watch list for Islamic radicalism stabbed a police officer at her station Friday in western La Belle France and shot two other officers before police potted him, authorities said.

The slain suspect was a Frenchie in his 40s who had been on a watch list for Islamic radicalism because of his "rigorous" religious practices, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said. The assailant had recently been released from prison and was under monitoring by psychiatric services, he said.

The three officers were maimed but none is in life-threatening condition, the minister said.

The motive for the violence in the Nantes suburb of La Chapelle-sur-Erdre was unclear, but Darmanin told news hounds at the scene that the man "clearly wanted to attack police."

The attacker was born in La Belle France and did not have any past convictions for terrorism-related crimes, Darmanin said.

The assailant, who lived in La Chapelle-sur-Erdre, entered the cop shoppe Friday morning saying he had a car problem, Mayor Fabrice Roussel said.

He then stabbed the first police officer inside the station, apparently took her gun and fled, Darmanin said. The officer was maimed in the leg and hand.

French police deployed helicopters, search dogs and more than 200 officers to find the suspect, and closed nearby schools and stores. When he was located, he fired on officers trying to arrest him, Darmanin said.

The suspect was gravely maimed in an ensuing shootout, and died Friday afternoon of his injuries, according to a police official. The official, who was not authorized to be publicly named, said authorities are not searching for any accomplices.

Police and ambulances blocked roads in the normally quiet, residential area after the stabbing.

Domestic security and attacks on police are a big political issue ahead of regional elections next month and La Belle France's presidential election next year.

Two police employees have been killed in La Belle France in recent weeks. One was an administrative official stabbed to death inside her cop shoppe near Gay Paree in what authorities are investigating as an Islamic krazed killer attack. The other was a drug squad officer shot to death in the southern city of Avignon.

A far-left, anti-capitalism group has claimed responsibility for setting fire to a Tesla factory site in Germany
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

Electrive adds:
After a fire at the Tesla plant in Grunheide on Wednesday night, when power cables were set on fire, a letter of confession was sent to media from the "Vulkangruppe", or ’volcano group’ as they call themselves. The group claims their actions are because Tesla is "neither green, ecological, nor social".
So... any action against Porsche, VW, BMW or Daimler electric car production sites? I am listening but not hearing...
The fire itself was not too damaging, and the fire brigade was able to extinguish the fire near the construction site for Giga Berlin before nightfall on Wednesday. Around 2:40 a.m., the regional control centre was informed about the small fire, which was found burning on an area of about 3 m² about 500 metres from the construction site.

At noon, a letter of confession from the "volcano group" was published on the platform Indymedia.org. "Tesla is neither green, ecological nor social," it says. "Our fire stands against the lie of the green automobile." A spokesperson for the Brandenburg State Criminal Police Office stated that the letter was being checked for authenticity.

The letter itself says: "We cut the power supply to the construction site of the Tesla Gigafactory in Grunheide near Berlin in the night of 25 to 26 May 2021 by setting fire to six high-voltage cables laid above ground. Tesla is neither green, ecological nor social. Tesla is a corporation that practices overexploitation worldwide, destroys livelihoods, and uses and manufactures colonial relations of exploitation. Our fire stands against the lie of the green automobile." The aim was to sabotage the construction site of the Tesla Gigafactory.

The police are currently checking the authenticity of the letter, but initial investigations already assume that it was an attack. According to the German state news broadcaster RBB, the Grunheide citizens’ initiative that critically accompanies the construction of the Tesla factory, condemns violent mostly peaceful actions at the construction site of the US electric car manufacturer but also said that it considers such a thing possible.

The Grand Turk
Eight ISIS members arrested during counter-terrorism operations in Turkey
[Rudaw] Ottoman Turkish counter-terrorism units have arrested eight suspected members 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....
(ISIS) group in a series of operations in Istanbul, Ottoman Turkish state media reported on Thursday.

"Within the scope of the investigation, the [counter-terrorism] team carried out simultaneous operations at 12 addresses in seven districts, detaining eight members of the organization," The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund...
's state media reported Thursday, adding that a large number of documents and digital materials were also seized in the operations.

It is believed that the group was operating in the city on behalf of ISIS and was considering taking action, according to state media.

ISIS members are often arrested in Istanbul as part of counterterrorism operations.

At least 26 ISIS suspects were arrested in Istanbul in April. Eighteen suspects were arrested in March, 16 of whom were foreign nationals.

#3 

A Good Start.

But Realistically, this bust amounts to little more than a droplet of its daily operations. Given the "CDS" numbers are over 10,000 and it moves over $40M a day in the USA.

The Real Question and awaited Headline is:
When will we see a Black Ops to take out "Zambada"

Hopefully the FED's have all of the moles hidden safely. Because the CDS is well known for its "pay back" to include a slow chainsaw dismemberment process.


BTW: I see the Media overlooked mentioning the gang has been in operation since the late 1980's and it was TRUMP's DEA that started this major multi-state bust.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Israel’s top cop extends police operation to nab suspects in Arab-Jewish violence
[IsraelTimes] Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai announces the extension of Operation Law and Order to nab suspects in the recent violence between Arabs and Jews that roiled ethnically mixed communities and other parts of the country.

Police say 348 suspects have been arrested in the operation so far and that 1,938 have been arrested since the recent fighting in 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...
, when the rioting in Israel broke out. There have been 175 indictments filed, according to police.

Southeast Asia
Indonesian Court Convicts Firebrand Cleric, 5 Supporters for Flouting Virus Restrictions
It was just another way they showed themselves not subject to secular law — and therefore another way for the government to show secular law overruling Sharia supremacists.
[BenarNews] An Indonesian court convicted and sentenced a hardline Islamic preacher and five of his associates to eight months in prison Thursday on charges of violating COVID-19 restrictions by organizing Jakarta area events that drew thousands of people last year.

The East Jakarta District Court found Muhammad Rizieq Shihab, founder of the banned but influential Islamic Defenders’ Front (FPI)
...founded by Muhammad Rezieq Shihab for nefarious purposes and headquartered in Jakarta, FPI began agitating for national imposition of sharia law in 1998. The group quickly attracted patronage — including funding and military training for its paramilitary arm, Laskar Pembela Islam (Islamic Defenders Paramilitary, LPI)— from Indonesia’s army and Jakarta’s police. They’re fond of vigilante actions and Antifa-style protests with violence, and have been called a conveyor belt leading from radicalism to terrorism. At the beginning of 2021 they were banned, so changed their name to Front Persatuan Islam (Islamic United Front), which everybody including themselves has already forgotten ...

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
One killed, two injured by unknown gunmen in Deir ez-Zor
[Rudaw] Unknown button men shot three street cleaners in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor province, killing one and wounding two others, the Rojava Information Center (RIC) reported on Thursday.

The street cleaners, who worked for the local municipality, were shot in the city of Hajin by unknown assailants on a cycle of violence.
"It's bad enough I live in Deir-ez-Zor. It's doubly bad I clean the rubble and shit-strewn streets. Now I get shot? F*ck it, I'm done"
One died in the attack, according to the RIC. The two other municipality employees were badly maimed and were taken to a local hospital.

The attack has not been claimed, but there has been an uptick in 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) sleeper cell attacks in the province, according to center.

An SDF soldier was killed and seven others were maimed when unknown button men on cycle of violences opened fire on their bus in Deir ez-Zor earlier this month.

The SDF and Syrian regime forces control Deir ez-Zor but the province is the focal point of ISIS attacks in north and east Syria.

Hajin has been part of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (Rojava) since it was captured by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). It had previously been held by ISIS and was its de facto capital after Raqqa and other strongholds were taken by Kurdish forces.

A military source told North Press that several soldiers were seriously injured during an operation to remove landmines and dismantle explosive devices in the desert near al-Tabni, west of Deir ez-Zor, with the aim of establishing points and checkpoints for themselves in the region.

The wounded were then transferred to the government military hospital in in the town of al-Tabni.
