Family of 8-Year-Old Shot in Atlanta: ‘You Killed Your Own’
[BREITBART] The father of 8-year-old Secoriea Turner took part in a presser in which he said, "They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own."

CNN
...formerly the Cable News Network, now who knows what it might stand for...
reports that 8-year-old Turner was killed Saturday night while riding with her mother, Charmaine Turner, who had a friend driving. "The driver was attempting to enter a parking lot at 1238 Pryor Road where a group of individuals illegally placed barricades. Someone in the group opened fire on the vehicle," and Turner was shot. According to the News Agency that Dare Not be Named, the shooting occurred "near Wendy’s restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed by a white police officer on June 12."

The father, Secoriya Williamson, stood and spoke at the presser while the girl’s mother sat next to him.

11 Alive news hound Natasha Lance posted video of Williamson speaking: "They say Black Lives Matter. You killed your own. You killed your own this time. Just because of a barrier? They killed my baby because she crossed a barrier and made a u-turn. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody."

Afghanistan
'15 Insurgents Killed in Baghlan Clashes': Officials
[ToloNews] At least 15 murderous Moslems were killed in Afghan air and ground forces operation in northern Baghlan province on Monday night, said local officials on Tuesday.

The operation was launched on the Pul-e-Khumri — Samangan highway after the murderous Moslems attacked and blocked the highway to traffic for several hours, said Ahmad Jawid Basharat, a front man for Baghlan's police chief.

"A combination of army, National Directorate of Security
...the Afghan national intel agency...
(NDS), police and police special forces have launched an operation in the highway in which 15 murderous Moslems--including their group leaders--were killed," Basharat said.

Qari Juma Gul, a key Taliban
...Arabic for students...
leader is also among the dead, Basharat said, adding that the forces have pushed back the murderous Moslems from the highway and reopened to the road to traffic.

The Taliban have not yet commented over the attack.

On Monday, sources said the festivities were still ongoing in the Chashma-e-Shir area and on the outskirts of Pul-e-Khumri city, the center of Baghlan, leaving the highway closed to traffic.

The festivities started after the Taliban installed a checkpoint on Baghlan-Balkh highway in Chashma-e-Shir area and started "extorting funds from truck drivers," say sources.

Hundreds of vehicles were stranded on both sides of the highway, according to eyewitnesses and passengers.

The commander of a highway unit, Abdul Ghani Mahmoudi, said the Taliban closed the highway after launching an attack on it.

He said that Taliban fighters had hidden in civilians’ homes and there was a need for reinforcement troops to push the murderous Moslems back from the highway.

Fierce, Widespread Fighting Surges to Control Afghan Highways
[ToloNews] Afghans on Tuesday expressed deep concern over what they described as a dramatic surge in security threats on the country’s main highways connecting Afghanistan’s capital Kabul to other provinces.

Travelers on these highways have said that no highway is currently secure from threats.

This comes as Afghan cops are making attempts to repel threats against highways in the north and northeastern parts of the country.

The highway connecting Kabul to Pashtun-infested Logar and Paktia provinces is one of the highways where threats have significantly increased over the past weeks.

"The war constantly prevails there, they (insurgents) launch attacks on the security forces on the highway," said Sayed Sherzai, a driver in Kabul-Pashtun-infested Logar highway.

"We face three or four security incidents on the way to Gardez. There is war," said Mir Afghan, a passenger from Paktia.

"There are problems inside the city, you can't imagine the scale of problems outside the city and on the outskirts," said Naqibullah, a resident in Paktia.

Meanwhile,
...back at the chili cook-off, Chuck and Manuel's rivalry was entering a new and more dangerous phase...
in the northern parts of the country, people have said that they frequently face threats on the highways.

"They (insurgents) appeared on the way and shot all the security personnel, they (insurgents) have established checkpoints and are searching the people," said Farhad, a resident in the northern part of Kabul.

"Attacks have significantly increased in the past month, casualties have been high among the army and the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
," said Parwaiz, a resident of Shakar Dara district in northern Kabul.

Baghlan-Kunduz highway faces the same situation.

"The road is blocked, they said that the Taliban has went kaboom! the road with mines, some other people say that they (Taliban) have established their customs there on the road," said Enayatullah, a driver on Kunduz-Baghlan highway.

"That is a short distance, they say that the government is unable to tackle it. If there is a government, why can't it show its power?" said Naqibullah, a driver on the Kabul-Baghlan highway.

Footage shows that the Afghan cops had a fierce battle with the Taliban on the Pul-e-Khumri--Samangan highway on Tuesday after the snuffies tried to block the road.

"Dead bodies of some of their group commanders were left on the battlefield, our special units also seized one Barrett M82 which is a powerful weapon," said Ahmad Jawed Besharat, a front man for the Baghlan police headquarters.

The Kabul-Jalalabad highway, which was once among the most secure highways, is also facing the same situation.

"They (insurgents) wanted to attack our convoys, fortunately we detected their plan through our intelligence and reconnaissance agencies," said Abdul Wali Qalandar, the commander of the Border Force on the Kabul-Jalalabad highway.

In the south, the Kabul-Kandahar highway is also among the deadliest routes where Afghan forces and the Taliban frequently engage in heavy fighting. The past government made pledges to secure the key highway connecting Kabul to the south, but no progress has been made.

But hey, if she really wants Seattle to be an island of communism then (1) she's got to build a wall around the city, uh, to prevent jealous non-Seattleites from entering and (2) Seattle has to have its own currency. Let's call it "the Sawant" and let it float against all major currencies. By the end of the year the exchange rate will be 10 million Sawants to the dollar.

She probably came to the US on a H-4 visa. Though she was a software engineer in India, there is nothing I can find that she worked as one in the US. She was rotten baggage on her husband's H1-B.

H-1B visa holders can bring immediate family members (spouse and children under 21) to the United States under the H-4 visa category as dependents.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Hezbollah media: Hamas arrests ISIS cells operating for Israel
[Jpost] Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason,' security services allegedly uncovered a "dangerous plan" of Israeli intelligence "working under the cover of ISIS-affiliated cells."

Hamas arrested several Salafi "elements" in the 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...
Strip under suspicion of operating for Israeli intelligence, Hezbollah-affiliated Lebanese newspaper al-Akhbar (The News) reported early Wednesday morning.

According to a "security source" cited by al-Akhbar, Hamas' security services uncovered a "dangerous plan" of Israeli intelligence "working under the cover of ISIS-affiliated cells," aimed at "directing security strikes to government and military infrastructure."

The Salafi cells allegedly planned to carry out suicide kabooms in the Gaza Strip targeting "strategic systems in the resistance." Hamas reportedly entered a "second-degree emergency" after the interrogations of those arrested allegedly concluded the plan to carry out the strikes would "be implemented soon."

The strikes, according to the source cited by al-Akhbar, were to be carried out by operatives on cycle of violences, similar to previous ISIS attacks against Hamas infrastructure in the strip. Last August, Hamas arrested an ISIS cell for directing a series of suicide kabooms against Gazook police.

The IDF denied having had any involvement in the Gazook attacks, according to Walla, as the Hamas-controlled Gazook Ministry of Interior claimed the bombings took place shortly after a Hamas skirmish with IDF troops.

In October, Hamas blamed Israel for "getting to youth with bad boy Salafi thoughts," contacting and directing them to carry out suicide kabooms against Hamas targets in August, according to al-Akhbar.

The Gazook Ministry of Interior reportedly issued a statement over the weekend, saying Hamas forces "discovered suspicious movements of a number of people," beginning "extensive investigations" leading to their arrests over the following days.

The suspects, the Hezbollah-affiliated news outlet reported, were "in the process of carrying out other sabotage actions against the resistance with direct follow-up from the intelligence of the occupation."

On Monday, Arab media reported Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh
...became Prime Minister of Gaza after the legislative elections of 2006 which Hamas won. President Mahmoud Abbas dismissed Haniyeh from office on 14 June 2007 at the height of the Fatah-Hamas festivities, but Haniyeh did not acknowledge the decree and continues as the PM of Gazoo while Abbas maintains a separate PM in the West Bank...
has called on Hezbollah Secretary-General His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah
...The satrap of the Medes and the Persians in Leb...
to "unite ranks" in efforts to thwart Israel's expected annexation of areas in the West Bank.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Work accident explodes near Iran’s capital kills two, damages factory - IRNA
More on this story from yesterday. Possibly the Israelis had nothing to do with it, and possibly American spy squirrels were also not involved. Accidents also happen to Allah’s favoured, though of course only when he so wills.
[Jpost] A large explosion was reportedly heard in areas south of Tehran and in the Kahrizak area.

At least two people were killed and three others injured in a large explosion at the Sepahan Boresh factory in the city of Baqershahr near Tehran on Monday night, according to Iranian and foreign reports.

The explosion was caused by "negligence in filling oxygen tanks," the Kahrizak district governor told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty on Tuesday. The walls of the Saipa Press Company, located next to the factory, were damaged by the earth-shattering kaboom as well.

"Human error was the cause of the blast in a factory ... Two people were killed and three others were maimed," said local official Amin Babai, adding that the earth-shattering kaboom happened in "an industrial zone" at Baqershahr near Tehran.

"The explosion that was caused by some workers' negligent handling of oxygen tanks.... was so powerful that the walls of a factory nearby were also totally destroyed."

A large explosion was reportedly heard by residents of areas south of Tehran and in the Kahrizak area.

The location of the earth-shattering kaboom is not far from the warehouse where Iran's nuclear archive was found by Israel in 2018, reported the IntelliTimes intelligence blog. The Saipa Press Company is located about 11 km. northeast from the area where the nuclear archive was found in the Shurabad commercial area. A warehouse where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that nuclear equipment and material was stored is also located nearby in the Turouzabad area. The ineffective International Atomic Energy Agency found traces of uranium at the warehouse in 2019 and began investigating its origin, according to Rooters.

IntelliTimes reported that the Sepahan Boresh factory belongs to the Iranian automotive manufacturer SAIPA. It cooperates with the Iranian Ministry of Defense; the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps is involved in the company as well.

This is the third explosion reported in the Tehran region in the past two weeks and the most recent in a series of explosions and fires reported in industrial areas and infrastructure throughout Iran.

High concentrations of the gas can start something and once started, other containers under pressure give up their long term plans.
IOW, you don't need to blow the place up by bringing all the energy with you. Just enough to start something.
The question is not whether a couple of guys working on the loading dock got killed. It's what's left of the facility which will tell the tale.

Car bomb explosion in Tel Abyad city and reports of casualties
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

Turkey says six killed in bomb attack near Syria border

[Jpost] A kaboom by the Kurdish YPG militia killed six people and maimed 11 on Tuesday in the northeastern Syrian town of Tel Abyad, near the Ottoman Turkish border, the Ottoman Turkish Defence Ministry said.

The Arab town, from which Ottoman Turkish-backed forces last October pushed out the YPG militia in a major campaign spearheaded by the Ottoman Turkish army, has seen a series of car blasts that have killed dozens of civilians.The attack was carried out with a boom-mobile and maimed civilians were treated in hospitals on both sides of the border, according to a statement by the governor's office in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
's southeastern province of Sanliurfa.

The governor's office said 17 people were maimed in the attack.

The YPG -- which Ankara considers a terrorist group because of its ties to PKK Kurdish murderous Moslems in southeast Turkey -- had for years been allied to the United States in the fight against 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....
