Police called after 300 teenagers destroy family fun center over faulty machines
[FoxNews] Golf and Games Family Park in Memphis was forced to change its guest policy.

A Tennessee mini-golf center was the scene of mayhem on Saturday, after a reported 300 to 400 teenagers began destroying the establishment because management reportedly refused to issue refunds for machines that stopped working.

According to local outlets, parents had dropped off large groups of teens at the family play place without supervision, violating coronavirus orders banning mass gatherings.

Issues began at Golf and Games Family Park in Memphis, Tenn., Saturday evening when some machines began swallowing money. The staff at the center was unable to offer refunds at the time, thus prompting all-out chaos, FOX 8 reported.

According to video shot at the center, teenagers, none of whom appear to be wearing masks, begin knocking items off counters and throwing items behind the counter. One of the girls involved is seen pulling the plastic screen, which is used as part of COVID-19 safety policy updates, from the counter and throwing it at staff.

In the same video, she picks up a metal stand and throws it. She also later spit on an employee, witnesses claimed.

Police were called to the scene. Witnesses reportedly told officers the girl seen in the video had become upset because staff would not issue her a refund when some of the machines ate her money.

Another teenager reportedly set off fireworks inside the building, causing damage to the interior.

The family park is working with authorities to identify those involved.

Due to the destructive incident, the center has updated its policy, banning all minors from visiting without parent supervision.

Rise of Foreign Fighters in Afghanistan's East: ANA General
[ToloNews] The number of imported muscle has increased on the battlefields in the eastern parts of Afghanistan, with most of them Pak nationals who are fighting alongside the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
in areas along the Durand Line, an Afghan Army general said on Monday.

On Sunday, a UN report submitted to the United Nations
...an organization which on balance has done more bad than good, with the good not done well and the bad done thoroughly...
Security Council indicated that the total number of "Pak foreign terrorist fighters" in Afghanistan is estimated at "between 6,000 and 6,500, most of them with Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistain (TTP)."

"Intelligence information shows that there are retired Pak colonels who are training the local Taliban," said Gen. Karim Niazi, commander of the second regiment of Selab 201 Corps.
Are they indeed? How very generous of them.
A captured Taliban member, named Shiran, said Pak fighters are fighting in support of the Taliban in Khogyani district, Nangarhar
The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country..

On Sunday, a UN report submitted to the United Nations Security Council indicated that the total number of “Pakistani foreign terrorist fighters” in Afghanistan is estimated at "between 6,000 and 6,500, most of them with Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP)."
"When we came to this mosque, there was a Pak who was killed by (Afghan) commandos and I was arrested," Shiran said.

The issue was spotlighted by Pak politician Ali Wazir, who raised questions on his Twitter account, asking about why the Pak bodies are brought to Pakistain from Afghanistan and what are Pakistain’s priorities.

Last week, Kandahar Police Chief Gen. Tadeen Khan shared a number of identity cards which, according to him, belong to Pak fighters who were killed in Maroof district, Kandahar province.

"Some bodies were left behind by the bully boys. All of them had Pak identity cards. This proves that they were Pak nationals," said Jamal Barikzai, Kandahar police front man.

"Some international terrorist groups, including al-Qaeda, were formed after the withdrawal of former Soviet forces. They might increase their activities after the withdrawal of US forces (from Afghanistan)," said Rahmatullah Nabil, former head of the National Directorate of Security
...the Afghan national intel agency...

Fifth Column
BLM protesters detain pregnant woman on way to hospital
[PRESSCALIFORNIA] San Luis Obispo, Calif. — After blocking traffic on Highway 101 in Central Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,, Black Lives Matters activists ignored the pleas of a motorist to take a pregnant woman in labor to a nearby hospital.The BLM group, rather than allowing the distressed family pass through the blockade, wanted instead to "have a conversion" about race issues.

The following video, posted this week by Cal Coast News, shows protesters asking the occupants of the vehicle whether the woman’s water broke or not.

"She is going to give birth," another woman in the pickup truck pleads. "Get out of the road."

Protest organizer Tianna Arata, 20, offered the following assessment of the situation: "She’s ignorant," she said, then walked away.

The demonstration, composed of hundreds of social justice warriors on July 21, started in a city park, then moved north on foot to Hwy 101, where the group blocked traffic in both directions for almost an hour.

During the time, they chased down, harassed and prevented drivers from exiting the highway. When demonstrators returned to town, Arata, brandishing an American flag, pursued several cars and hit one of them with a flagpole.

#4  Your baby and the mother's lives are priority 1. Any gang endangering thier lives will be placing themselves at risk. I saw a security camera video of a person backing into their garage and as the garage door was coming down three men ducked into the garage under the door and one of them pointed a pistol at the driver. The driver drove over them and crashed through the garage door crashed into the get away car totalibg it outside the garage, backed up and left the area for safety. To put the safety of a gang over family is crazy.

Major narco-terror module busted
[Daily Excelsior] Security forces today busted a narco-terror module by arresting three persons and recovered huge cache of arms, ammunition and narcotics from them.

Inspector General of Police Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
, Vijay Kumar, told Excelsior that based on a credible input a joint naka of Kupwara police and Army was laid at Sadhna Pass in Tanghdar area of district Kupwara which busted a module of narco-terrorism.

He said that during the operation, two vehicles, Bolero bearing registration number JK01AJ-0219 and Santro bearing registration number JK05B-5471 were intercepted.

The troops pressed Army dogs into services who facilitated to locate the concealed and hidden packages from these vehicles.

Arms and ammunition including one AK 56, a magazine, two pistols with two magazines, 20 grenades and other incriminating materials were recovered from the vehicles. Besides this, huge quantity of narcotics approximately 10 kilogrammes was also recovered.

Police arrested three persons from whose possession the arms and ammunition was recovered and they were shifted to Police Station for further investigation. They have been identified as Ameer Amin Sheikh son of Mohammad Amin Sheikh of Hajinar Tanghdar, Bashir Ahmad Sheikh son of Ghulam Ahmad Sheikh of Bhatpora Tanghdar and Faizan Bashir Sheikh son of Bashir Ahmad Sheikh of Bhatpora Tanghdar.

The two vehicles used in the commission of the crime have also been seized. A case has been registered and investigation into the matter is going on.

And security forces today busted a murderous Moslem hideout in Shopian district of South Kashmir and revered arms and ammunition from it.

Police said that based on a credible input, Shopian police along with 44 RR and 178 battalion CRPF busted a murderous Moslem hideout in the orchards of Dachoo village area of district Shopian.

During search in the area, a murderous Moslem hideout was busted and arms and ammunition including 2 UBGL grenades, 3 Chinese grenades, one AK-47 magazine, 20 AK-47 rounds, one ICOM radio set, two pouches, two blankets and other incriminating materials was recovered.

Police have started the paperwork but haven't done much else and investigation are on.

Militants this morning fired upon 14th Battalion of CRPF deployed at main town Shopian in South Kashmir. However,
corruption finds a dozen alibis for its evil deeds...
no loss of life or injuries were reported in the attack. Security forces cordoned off the area but Lions of Islam managed to escape.

Powerful explosions reported at second Iraqi airbase
[ALMASDARNEWS] For the second time this evening, an Iraqi airbase has witnessed powerful explosions north of the capital, Baghdad.

The latest explosions were reported at the Martyr Majd al-Tamimi Air Force, which is located in the Salaheddine Governorate,

The Iraqi Security Media Cell reported: "At exactly 11:00 P.M. on the evening of July 27th, two explosions occurred at the Martyr Majd al-Tamimi Air Force Base in the Salaheddine Governorate and civil defense units were able to control the fires that resulted from these two explosions."

They added that they are investigating the earth-shattering kabooms, but pointed out that there were no casualties as a result of the blasts.

Early reports indicate that the earth-shattering kabooms were likely caused by internal factors and not by any entity attacking the base.
Note from Rudaw added 29 July 2020:
Speicher military base, which is currently named Majid al-Timimi air base, is located in the town of Tikrit town, approximately 170 kilometers north of Baghdad.

The base was the site of a bloody massacre in 2014, when Islamic State (ISIS) militants stormed the site and captured at murdered at least 1,500 cadets – most of whom were Shiite.

Three Rockets Hit Iraqi Taji Military Base

Rudaw adds:
A spate of Katyusha rockets targeted Taji military base, which hosts US troops, north of Baghdad on Monday night, a US official confirmed to Rudaw English.

The official says that "four Katyusha rockets" hit the base without causing any casualties.

Like other sites hosting foreign troops, the base has been a frequent target of rocket attacks, blamed most commonly on Iran-backed Iraqi militias.

The Iraqi security media cell also released a statement following Monday’s attack, claiming that three Katyusha rockets landed on site.

The rockets landed inside the Iraqi section of the Taji military base, according to the media cell statement, which says that one rocket caused "serious damages" to an Iraqi military warplane.

The second and third rockets landed in an Iraqi security force weapons warehouse and near the Iraqi warplanes section respectively, according to the statement.

"The Iraqi security forces will continue hunting down the perpetrators of such attacks," the Iraqi security media cell added.

Located north of Baghdad, Taji hosts US military personnel to advise and train Iraqi troops in the fight against 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....

Israel 'exchanges fire with Hezbollah' as tensions on Lebanon's border escalate
Followup to Grom's post yesterday with more info
[Sky] Israel’s military says it has exchanged fire with gunmen linked to Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group.

The incident on Monday afternoon represents an escalation of tension along the border shared by the two countries.

According to the Israeli Defence Force (IDF), a "terror squad" crossed the UN administered Blue Line on Israel's northern border with Lebanon on Monday afternoon.

A spokesman for the IDF said that Israeli soldiers had "successfully thwarted an infiltration attempt... a group of terrorists crossed Blue Line. [We] monitored and tracked them."

The spokesman said Israeli forces "engaged... with small arms and tank fire". Artillery was also used to create a smokescreen by the IDF.

Israeli civilians living in the area were ordered indoors for an hour after the clash took place.

The Israeli Army said that the militants had crossed back across the border after the exchange of fire and that there had been no Israeli casualties.

but this reads like an escalated response to 'something that went bump in the night'.

Tank and artillery fire, and a terror squad that withdrew in the darkness from the attempted incursion.
