At least three feared dead in ‘terror-related’ stabbings in England: reports
Sudden Jihad Syndrome.
[NYPOST] Three people are believed dead and at least two were critically injured following multiple "terror-related" stabbings in Reading, England, Saturday, according to reports.

One man is under arrest, said police, who have not officially confirmed the fatalities.

A source told the Telegraph there were three victims declared dead at the scene, and two transferred to the emergency room at Royal Berkshire Hospital.

The attack appeared to be "completely random," amidst a park full of people, a witness claimed.

"... One lone person walked through, suddenly shouted some unintelligible words and went around a large group of around 10, trying to stab them," Lawrence Wort, 20, told the PA news agency, according to The Sun. "He stabbed three of them, severely in the neck, and under the arms, and then turned and started running towards me, and we turned and started running. When he realized that he couldn’t catch us, he tried to stab another group sat down, he got one person in the back of the neck and then when he realized everyone was starting to run, he ran out the park."

Another man who saw the alleged stabber said it looked like the attacker was tapping people on the head, according to a report.

"I thought they were playing duck duck goose and thought someone had been sick, we realized it was blood spraying out," said the man, who gave his name as Dan.

Thames Valley Police said: "A number of people sustained injuries and were taken to hospital. A police cordon is in place in Forbury Gardens as officers investigate. We are asking the public to avoid the area at this time."

The Telegraph said eyewitness accounts on social media have reported "paramedics and police tending to maimed people in the park."
The BBC adds:
A 25-year-old man from Reading has been arrested on suspicion of murder after being detained at the scene.

The attack happened at Forbury Gardens at about 19:00 BST where several people were stabbed.

Police are not currently treating the incident as terror-related, but counter terrorism officers were called.

Security sources have told the BBC a man arrested at the scene is thought to be Libyan.
Libyan? How interesting. Place yer bets, ladies and gents: nutter or connected? We’ve seen quite a few connected Libyans running amok in England over the years...
Thames Valley Police said the incident was not connected to an earlier Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest in the park.

Counter-terrorism police storm a flat after a frenzied stabbing spree by a 'Libyan' man, 25, on middle-aged men drinking in a Reading park left three dead and another three seriously injured before attacker was rugby-tackled by hero lone policeman

[Daily Mail, where America gets its news] Counter-terrorism police last night raided a block of flats in Reading after a frenzied stabbing attack 'by a Libyan man' left three people dead and another three seriously injured.

Witnesses said the attacker targeted a group of middle-aged men 'sitting drinking beer' in Forbury Gardens in Reading town centre at around 7pm on Saturday and systematically stabbed them 'in the neck and under the arms'.

The knife-wielding suspect, 25, was arrested at the scene by a hero lone police sergeant who rugby-tackled him to the floor.
From comments, added for future searchability: our jihadi is 25-year-old Libyan national Khairi Saadallah, who arrived in England as an asylum seeker some years ago.

#12  And he was known to MI-5. "Security sources said the suspect came to the attention of the security services after they received information he had aspirations to travel abroad - potentially for terrorism.
When the information was further investigated, as the first stage of looking into a potential lead, no genuine threat or immediate risk was identified."

#13  When the information was further investigated, as the first stage of looking into a potential lead, no genuine threat or immediate risk was identified."

And *that* is why treating terror as a criminal matter is stupid.
"Yeah, we knew the guy was a bank robber and that he was in town to rob a bank. But since he had not actually robbed a bank yet, we did nothing."
Posted by: SteveS || 06/21/2020 14:52 Comments || Top||

#14  And *that* is why treating terror as a criminal matter is stupid.

There is a second level of stupidity, and we are just as guilty of it in America with regard to illegals: Mr. Saadallah, who was in England on asylum status, had come to the attention of MI-5 for jihadi inclinations, as well, as I recall, as having a record of petty criminality. In my considered opinion, anyone who has committed a crime beyond the level of pocketing a pen or two from the office should be PNG’d immediately. Asylum or ignoring illegal status ought to be only for those so grateful for the privilege that they work to obey every jot and tittle of the host country’s laws and customs. There are plenty of others equally in need and just as deserving who will do so if given a chance, after all — why should those eager to misbehave be indulged?

Kurdish Iranian politician survives assassination attempt in the Netherlands: Local media
[Kurdistan24] Sadegh Zarza, the 64-year-old former leadership member of the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI), survived an liquidation attempt on Saturday in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden, an attack his family has blamed on the Iranian government.

Taher Zarza, his brother, told the Leeuwarden Courant newspaper that Zarza was stabbed multiple times in his head, neck, stomach, and chest, but has survived.

"He was earlier on the kill list of the Iranian secret service," he told the local news agency. "Years ago, the BVD (Dutch intelligence service) also prevented another liquidation attempt against my brother," he said, adding that the attack was a message from Iran.

Protesters in Raleigh drag a Confederate soldier statue through the street and hang it from a pole while Donald Trump slams cops for letting demonstrators rip down and burn a monument to General Albert Pike in D.C.
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Trump criticized Washington D.C. police Friday after protesters toppled a statue of a Confederate general

  • He said police were 'doing nothing' as the statue of General Albert Pike was torn down and burned

  • Some critics claim Pike was instrumental to the establishment of the Ku Klux Klan

  • Protesters in Raleigh, North Carolina, also tore down Confederate statues on Friday night

  • They dragged the statues through the city's streets before hanging one of them from a street sign

  • Statues fell after millions of Americans celebrated Juneteenth on Friday with a series of peaceful protests

  • Juneteenth commemorates the abolition of slavery and originated in Galveston, Texas

  • Juneteenth is recognized as a holiday in 47 states and Washington D.C., but is not an official federal holiday

Prominent ISIS commander killed in drone attack in Turkish-controlled areas
[SYRIAHR] Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: reliable SOHR sources have confirmed that the person who was killed in today’s drone attack near al-Bab city, was a prominent ISIS commander in al-Raqqah. According to SOHR sources, an armed drone targeted the cycle of violence which the commander was riding this afternoon on the outskirt of al-Bab city in the north-eastern countryside of Aleppo.

On May 22, SOHR sources said rescue teams identified one of the fatalities left in the attack on the previous day by a drone, believed to be affiliated to the International Coalition.

A vehicle was attacked on the road to Sheikh Iskan in rural Jendiras, west of Aleppo. SOHR sources said that one of the dead was identified as an ex-ISIS commander who used to move constantly between areas in Idlib and Jendires, while Ottoman Turkish forces detained the maimed man, whose fate remained unknown.

Unknown gunman shoots dead member of ‘Idlib Free Army’
[SYRIAHR] Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that a member of "Idlib Free Army" from al-Mawzarah town in Jabal al-Zawiyah was rubbed out by unidentified gunman, in a neighbourhood in Idlib city.

SOHR sources reported earlier this morning that as security situation was deteriorating in areas under the control of Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
and the factions in Idlib province and surrounding countryside, Syrian Observatory activists documented the death of two displaced young men from Khattab village in the northern countryside of Hama, in uncertain circumstances. The victims’ bodies were found in a farmland near Kafr Nouran village in the western countryside of Aleppo with marks of gun shoots on them. No information has been reported about the perpetrators so far.

As more fatalities were documented, the number of people who have been killed in the countryside of Idlib, Aleppo, Hama, and Latakia since the 26th of April 2018, the start date of the security chaos to be escalated in these provinces, rose to 650. They were assassinated by kabooms, IED detonations, gunfire, abductions and then killing and throwing the bodies in remote areas. The fatalities were distributed as follows.
  • A fighter in Turkestan Islamic Party

  • The wife of an Uzbek commander and another child was with her

  • The attorney-general of the Ministry of Justice of the Salvation Government

  • 186 civilians, including 23 children and 18 women

  • 391 fighters of Syrian nationality belong to Hayyaat Tahrir al-Sham, al-Sham Corps, the Islamic Movement of Ahrar al-Sham
    ...a Syria jihadi group made up of Islamists and salafists, not that there's that much difference, formed into a brigade. They make up the main element of the Islamic Front but they don't profess adoration of al-Qaeda and they've been fighting (mainly for survival) against the Islamic State. Their leadership was wiped out at a single blow by a suicide kaboom at a crowded basement meeting in September, 2014...
    , Jaish al-Izza, and other factions operating in Idlib

  • 70 fighters of Somali, Uzbek, Asian, Gulf, Jordanian, Ottoman Turkish and Caucasian nationalities.
Meanwhile,
...back at the wreckage, Captain Poindexter wished he had a cup of coffee. Even instant would do...
the liquidation attempts have injured tens of people with varying severity.
