Five killed in Al-Shabaab attack on African Union forces in Somalia
[Garowe] At least five soldiers were killed and several injured in a roadside blast targeting African Union

forces in Somalia on Saturday.

A convoy of the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS) hit a landmine on the outskirts of Marka, the thriving provincial capital of the southwestern Lower Shabelle region.

The five soldiers killed were Ugandans serving in the AU mission, according to local media reports.

Officials in the region confirmed the attack but did not specify the number of casualties. The AU mission is yet to comment on the incident.

The al-Shabaab
...... the Islamic version of the old Somali warlord...

Hundreds of Sudanese protesters demanding an end to military rule take to the streets of the capital Khartoum
They protested Omar al-Bashir‘s military dictatorship, they protested the joint military-civilian thing that replaced him, they protested the military coup, the civilian government, the prime minister’s resignation— clearly protesting is the end, not the means.

Islah Party official survives assassination attempt in Taiz
[HODHODYEMENNEWS] A senior commander loyal to Saudi-led coalition in the ranks of Islah Party militia has on Saturday survived an liquidation attempt in Taiz province, western 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...
Local sources reported that an improvised explosive went off in a military car of a commander in the Transport Brigade named Amjad Khaled, when he stopped in 24th Street in al-Turba city in Taiz.

The sources stated that the earth-shattering kaboom led to the killing of a recruit in the coalition ranks and the injury of others, and caused damages in the surrounding.

The Islah militia deployed around the area following the blast, closed it down and raided commercial shops, according to the sources.

The UAE-backed Southern Transitional Council (STC) last week accused the commander in question of being behind the liquidation of military commander Thabit Jawas in Aden.

Caucasus/Russia/Central Asia
Curfew imposed after deadly unrest in Uzbekistan
[RT] A curfew has been imposed in a region of Uzbekistan as the country’s President Shavkat Mirziyoyev responded to unrest, acknowledging that people have been killed in festivities with police this week.

"Government buildings were attacked. Unfortunately, there were casualties among civilians and law enforcement officials," Mirziyoyev told local MPs in the city of Nukus on Sunday, the site of Friday’s riots.

The president did not specify how many people had bit the dust. The authorities had previously said a "criminal group" instigated street protests and attempted to seize power in Uzbekistan’s northwestern region of Karakalpakstan.

A one-month state of emergency came into effect in the region on Sunday, with a curfew fixed from 9pm to 7am. Other measures include a ban on protests and "restrictions on the freedom of movement," according to a document published on the president’s website.

The demonstrations ostensibly began after the government unveiled a plan to revoke Karakalpakstan’s autonomy as part of a package of constitutional amendments. Mirziyoyev, however, argued that the backlash was fueled by "misunderstood interpretations" of the proposed reform.

Mirziyoyev has promised that the status of Karakalpakstan will remain unchanged, and that the final draft of the amendments will be put to a referendum.

At the same time, the president warned of "harsh measures" against "those who try to disturb the peace, calm and public safety."

Two LeT terrorists apprehended by villagers in Reasi — is accused BJP IT chief?


Police on Sunday said that two LeT Lions of Islam were apprehended by villagers in Tuksan village in J&K's Reasi district for which DGP announced Rs 2 lakh reward for the villagers.

A cache of arms and ammunition had been recovered from the accused.

"Hats off to the courage of villagers of Tuksan, in #Reasi district . Two #Lions of Islam of LeT apprehended by villagers with weapons; 2AK #rifles, 7 #Grenades and a #Pistol. DGP announces #reward of Rs 2 lakhs for villagers, " a police front man said.

He identified the accused duo as Faizal Ahmed Dar son of Bashir Ahmed Dar of Pulwama and a "categorised terrorist" Talib Hussain son of Haider Shah of Rajauri.

Lashkar terrorist caught in Jammu was BJPs IT Cell Chief; war of words between BJP-Cong

[OneIndia] A political slugfest erupted between the BJP and the Congress in Jammu and Kashmir after a top Lashker-e-Taiba terrorist, overpowered by locals and handed over to the police, was reported to be an active member of the saffron party who was recently selected as its IT and social media cell in charge of the minority morcha in Jammu province.

As the news about villagers overpowering Talib Hussain Shah and handing him and his associate Faisal Ahmad Dar to the police surfaced, purported pictures of Shah with JK BJP chief Ravinder Raina and his participation in party functions emerged on social media.

The pictures included the one where Raina was presenting him a bouquet and a letter issued by party leader Sheikh Bashir, assigning him the responsibility of new IT and social media incharge of Minority Morcha (Jammu province) on May 9 While Raina dismissed the presence of Shah in his party as a "conspiracy hatched by Pakistan to target him and the party headquarters", Pradesh Congress Committee chief spokesperson Ravinder Sharma said the ruling party should answer to the nation the alleged presence of terrorists in their ranks and holding important party positions.

This is a second incident within two days where it has been alleged that terror accused had links with the BJP. The two people arrested in Udaipur were alleged by the Congress to have links with the Saffron party. Congress leader Pawan Khera on Saturday had cited Facebook posts showing accused Riyaz Akhtari with local BJP leaders and sought to know whether the Centre had moved quickly to transfer the case to the National Investigation Agency (NIA) due to this reason.

The charge was denied by the BJP's IT cell chief Amit Malviya saying the accused were not BJP members and said the opposition party was peddling in fake news. Shah and Dar were in possession of two AK Assault rifles, seven grenades, a pistol and a huge quantity of ammunition when they were confronted by Muslim villagers and disarmed before handing them over to police after tying them with ropes inside a dhok (mud-house) in the higher reaches of Gulab Garh.

While lauding the people for assisting police in capturing the two most-wanted LeT terrorists, JK BJP chief said "they were part of a conspiracy hatched from Pakistan to target him and the party headquarters".

"He introduced himself as a journalist and took my interviews several times at my party office sometime back. He developed close liaison with party activists and leaders after coming to our headquarters (Trikuta Nagar Jammu)," Raina told PTI. Raina claimed that he came to know from the security agencies that Shah was a mole planted by Pakistan-based terrorists to target BJP headquarters and the leadership including him.

"The arrest of the duo is a big success for the security forces as a major conspiracy of Pakistan has been thwarted. I also came to know that he had shared the pictures of the BJP headquarters with his handlers across the border," he said. Raina said terror organisations, frustrated by BJP's expansion in Jammu and Kashmir, have repeatedly threatened him over in the past many years and since they failed to target him, they hatched a conspiracy to plant their activist in the BJP to target him and other leaders of the party.

However, he said BJP is determined to wipe-out Pakistan-sponsored terrorism from Jammu and Kashmir and "we will not be cowed down by threats or conspiracies". The BJP chief claimed he was also told by the security agencies that Shah was keeping a close watch on his movement in the twin districts of Rajouri and Poonch and was passing the information to his handlers in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

"I have full faith in the training, ability and courage of our police and security forces who are determined to root out terrorism. With the arrest of Shah and his associate, the Pakistani conspiracy to target me has failed," he said.

Reacting strongly, the Congress chief spokesperson said "this is for the first time that such a thing had happened (when an office bearer of a party is directly involved in terrorism." "BJP should answer to the nation about the presence of terrorists in their ranks holding important party positions. It is a very serious matter and a threat to the security of the nation," he said. Lt Governor Manoj Sinha and Director General of Police Dilbag Singh lauded the villagers for their courage and announced cash rewards for them.

Palestinian teen dies of wounds day after clashing with army — PA
[IsraelTimes] Military says suspect hurled Molotov cocktail at troops near Jenin, where Israeli forces have concentrated operations since deadly terror wave

A teenage Paleostinian shot Saturday by Israeli soldiers during festivities in the northern West Bank has died of his wounds, the Paleostinian Authority Health Ministry said Sunday.

Kamel Abdullah Alawneh, 17, was shot in the stomach and hand during fighting with Israeli soldiers outside a town near Jenin, PA health officials said.

According to both military and Paleostinian media accounts, Alawneh was shot while clashing with Israeli troops who set up a checkpoint at the entrance to the village of Jaba’.

The Israel Defense Forces said a Paleostinian hurled a Molotov cocktail at the soldiers, who fired at the suspect in response.

"A hit was identified," an IDF statement said. "The circumstances of the incident are being clarified."

No troops were maimed.

Video from Ibn Sina Hospital in Jenin shortly after Alawneh’s death was announced Sunday showed scores of Paleostinian men chanting "millions of deaders are marching to Jerusalem," as they brought a flag-draped body through the hospital’s hallways.

IDF: Troops nab 2 Gaza infiltrators armed with grenade and knives
[IsraelTimes] Military says suspects being questioned over breach at southern section of Strip’s border

Two Paleostinian men, one armed with a grenade, were detained by Israel Defense Force soldiers after infiltrating into southern Israel overnight from the Gazoo

Strip, the military said Sunday morning.

The IDF said the pair were also armed with two knives.

The military did not clarify whether the suspects had successfully passed through the fence, in the southern part of the coastal enclave, when they were captured.

The suspects were being questioned, the IDF said.

While Israel has a series of high-tech fences and walls guarding its frontier with Gaza, both above- and belowground, a number of gaps remain in the steel fencing surrounding the territory.

In times of low visibility, these gaps have been used by Paleostinians to illegally enter Israeli territory, often with hopes of fleeing the impoverished enclave.
If they had a grenade and knives, this was no innocent escape in hopes of finding work.
While attacks on Israeli civilians by those infiltrating from Gaza are rare, a Paleostinian man crossed into Israel last May armed with several knives and attacked a security guard some five kilometers from the border fence, lightly hurting him. The suspect, who was shot and maimed by another guard, has been indicted.

Though Paleostinians regularly attempt to cross into Israel from Gaza, it is highly uncommon for them to make it far into Israeli territory without being seen and detained by Israeli troops.

IDF seizes $2.5 million worth of drugs on Egypt border
[IsraelTimes] Israeli troops foiled an attempt to smuggle some $2.5 million worth of drugs into the country from Egypt early Sunday, the military said.

According to the Israel Defense Forces, soldiers monitoring surveillance cameras spotted four suspects approaching the border from Egypt overnight, and dispatched troops to the scene.

Some 70 kilograms (155 pounds) of cocaine and hashish, estimated to be worth NIS 9 million ($2.5 million), was seized.

No arrests were made, according to the army.

Israel says Egyptian smugglers operate by tossing contraband over the border to Israelis, who then sell the drugs in Israel. The smugglers mostly traffic in marijuana and hashish from grow houses in the Sinai Peninsula, but sometimes harder drugs like cocaine and heroin are smuggled in as well.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Suspected Turkish drone targets Syrian army base in Tal Rifaat: Reports
[Rudaw] A suspected Ottoman Turkish drone on Sunday targeted a base of the Syrian army in Tal Rifaat, northwestern Syria, injuring two regime soldiers, local media reported.

"A suicide drone belonging to the Ottoman Turkish army targeted a point of Damascus government forces in the Tal Rifaat district ... wounding two of its soldiers," Hawar News Agency (ANHA) reported.

ANHA added that the bombing also resulted in material damages.

Local monitor Rojava Information Center (RIC), affiliated with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), said that the alleged Ottoman Turkish attack "targeted a security center of the SAA [Syrian army] and maimed two soldiers."

Tal Rifaat is a small pocket of territory in northwest Syria that along with Syria's northern city of Manbij, is eyed as the next target of Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than there are in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really most important...
in a looming operation aimed at pushing back Kurdish fighters of the People's Protection Units (YPG) from the area and completing a 30-kilometer "safe zone."

The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
considers the YPG to be the Syrian offshoot of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), an gang fighting for increased Kurdish rights in Turkey and designated a terrorist organization by Ankara.

The operation has been condemned by the US, Iran, and Syria itself.

Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Saturday warned that potential Ottoman Turkish intervention in Syria would destabilize the region, and expressed Tehran's opposition to "any kind of military operation in northern Syria."

Syria has also spoken against the Ottoman Turkish military plans, calling them a violation of Syrian illusory sovereignty.

RIC also claimed that Sunday's targeting of Tal Rifaat "is the 49th drone attack on NES [North and East Syria] since January 2022."
