Afghanistan
Blast in Kabul, Afghanistan kills 8; Daesh claims responsibility
[GEOTV] ISIS on Friday grabbed credit for a deadly blast in a minority residential area in Afghanistan's capital Kabul, the group said.

The Afghan police said at least eight people were killed and 18 maimed in the blast. ISIS said in a statement that 20 people were killed and injured in an attack launched in western Kabul.
That’s where the Shiite neighbourhoods are that ISIS-Afghanistan so like to attack.
"The explosion happened in a crowded place," said Khalid Zadran, the city's police front man.

Video shared on social media purportedly of the blast site showed men rushing to help the injured after the incident.

A senior Taliban
...Arabic for students...
security official, who declined to be named, said primary investigations revealed that explosives were placed in a vegetable cart and the blast resulted in the wounding and killing of more than 50 people, including women and kiddies.

"There is a possibility that the corpse count will increase because most of the maimed people had critical wounds," he said.

ISIS has claimed recent attacks, mainly on the minority community.

The ISIS affiliate operating in Afghanistan since 2014 is seen as the country's most serious security challenge since the Taliban took control of the country in August last year.

#2  From Skidmark’s link:

The bomb exploded in a western district of the city where members of the minority Shi'ite Muslim community regularly meet. Islamic State, a Sunni Muslim militant group, claimed responsibility for the attack, the group said on its Telegram channel.

A senior medical officer at a private hospital said at least eight people died and 22 were wounded.

No up-to-date census data exists, but estimates put the size of the Shi'ite community at between 10-20% of the population of 39 million, including Persian-speaking Tajiks and Pashtuns as well as Hazaras.

Arabia
Islah Party senior figure: Joining Saudi side was serious mistake
[HODHODYEMENNEWS.NET] A big shot of the Islah party (the 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...
i branch of the Moslem Brüderbund) has admitted that the party leadership made a serious mistake, in joining the Saudi-led coalition and in refusing to listen to the advices of those defending the homeland alongside with the forces of Sana’a.

"The party’s remnant leaders deserve to be dismissed from the Saudi-led coalition-backed government, through decisions issued by the ’Riyadh-formed Presidential Council’ because the party’s leadership in Riyadh refused to listen to the advices about making alliance with Sana’a forces and leaving the Saudi capital," said Anis Mansour al-Subaihi, who is also the Head of the Hana Aden Center for Studies.

"Those who are covered by the Saudis will become naked," Mansour said, referring to the fact that Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
let down its allies.

Mansour noted that the fate of the Islah Party’s leaders will be imprisonment next to Saudi religious scholar Suleiman al-Awda, who was arrested by Saudi authorities in 2017 and has remained in prison ever since.

Caribbean-Latin America
San Luis Potosí: Armed confrontation leaves 13 dead
[AnimalPolitico] The Secretary of Security of San Luis Potosí indicated that the people who died, 10 men and 3 women, are presumably members of an organized crime cell.

Thirteen suspected criminals were killed and two detained was the result of a confrontation between security forces and an armed group in the municipality of Rayón, San Luis Potosí.

The Secretary of Security and Citizen Protection of the state indicated that the people killed are presumably members of an organized crime cell in Rayón, which would have been responsible for multiple criminal situations in the region.

The people who died are 10 men and 3 women, who wore ballistic vests.

The agency explained that this Thursday afternoon an armed group was detected on a road in the town of Vaqueros, in the municipality of Rayón. Agents of the State Civil Guard repelled the aggression by subjects who were sheltering inside a home.

Inside the building, five 7.62×39 caliber long guns
(AKs)
and 22 long guns, apparently 308 caliber, were found.

While, outside the home, three Pick Up trucks were located, and inside one of them, with license plates from the state of Tamaulipas, a man was found and a woman was found next to him in the passenger seat, and between the front seat a long weapon of the so-called horn of a goat, as well as multiple tire punches made by hand.

Also located is a Ford Lariat double cab pickup truck with Florida state identification plates.

The secretariat reported that another gray Honda CRV truck without identification plates and a white pickup truck with black stripes were found in the back of the home.

Outside the house, on the dirt road vehicular stream, a gray Ford pickup truck was found, without tires, mounted between stones and metal structures.

Day 2: Gaza: Palestinian militant Tayseer Jabari 'Tango Uniform' as Israel strikes after threats
Follow up to this story from yesterday. See today also here, here, here, and here for tweets as events unfolded yesterday.
[BBC] At least 10 people have been killed by Israeli air strikes in the Gaza Strip, including a top commander of a Palestinian militant group. Local health officials said a young girl was among the dead with dozens of others wounded.

Israel's PM said the operation followed "an immediate threat" by Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) after the arrest of one of its members early this week.

The PIJ fired more than 100 rockets into Israel "in an initial response". Most were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defence shield. Sirens were heard in a number of Israeli cities.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it then resumed strikes late on Friday, targeting militant positions.

In a televised address earlier in the day, Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid said "Israel carried out a precise counter-terror operation against an immediate threat".

The IDF said it struck sites linked to the PIJ. They include the high-rise Palestine Tower in Gaza City, hit in a loud explosion which left smoke pouring from the building. Four PIJ militants - including Tayseer Jabari - and a five-year-old girl were among those killed since the strikes started, local health officials say. They say another 55 people were injured.

An Israeli military spokesman said the IDF was "assuming about 15" militants had been killed.

Israel's Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked told Channel 12 News: "We don't know how this will play out... but this could take time... This could be a lengthy round [of conflict] and a hard one."

Speaking while on a visit to the Iranian capital, Tehran, PIJ secretary general Ziyad al-Nakhala said "we will respond forcefully to this aggression, and there will be a fight in which our people will win".
For a given definition of winning that would look like losing to anyone else.
"There are no red lines for this battle... and Tel Aviv will be under the rockets of the resistance."

Meanwhile, Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, said that armed groups were "united" in battle and would not keep silent.

On Monday night, Israel arrested Bassem Saadi, reported to be the head of PIJ in the West Bank. He was held in the Jenin area as part of an ongoing series of arrest operations after a wave of attacks by Israeli Arabs and Palestinians that left 17 Israelis and two Ukrainians dead. Two of the attackers came from the Jenin district.

Gantz approves draft of over 25,000 reservists after IDF strikes in Gaza

[JPost] Israel takes initiative and launches widescale attack on northern Gaza in Operation Breaking Dawn. Iron Dome batteries deployed throughout Israel.

The IDF launched Operation Breaking Dawn against Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip on Friday evening, striking multiple targets belonging to the group and killed close to a dozen terrorist operatives including the head of the group in the northern part of the enclave. By late Friday night, over 100 rockets had been fired into Israel from the Gaza Strip.

Defense Minister Benny Gantz approved a draft call up order of up to 25,000 soldiers in reserve duty for operational purposes and the IDF began calling up reservists in the Southern Command, Air Defense Units, the Homefront Command and combat troops and officers.

"The goal of this operation is the elimination of a concrete threat against the citizens of Israel and the civilians living adjacent to the Gaza Strip," Prime Minister Yair Lapid said in a statement.

Dozens of targets across the Gaza Strip were hit, with casualties including the head of the group’s northern command Tayseer al-Jabari.
More Jerusalem Post from Frank G:
Seems like the IDF info on retaliation was ...accurate
The rocket attacks were carried out hours after a senior Islamic Jihad terrorist was killed in a targeted Israeli Air Force airstrike in northern Gaza.

More than 100 rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip into southern and central Israel on Friday night, hours after the IDF struck multiple terrorist targets in Gaza, killing a top Islamic Jihad terrorist leader as well as additional operatives.

Sirens were heard across a number of key Israeli cities as more than 100 rockets were fired at Yavne, Be'er Yaakov, Ashdod and Gaza-border communities. Most of the rockets were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system. The IDF was retaliating and striking additional targets said to be affiliated with Islamic Jihad terrorist infrastructure.

The targeting range was soon widened as rockets were fired toward the center of Israel including Rishon Lezion, Bat Yam and Holon.

An hour later, more rockets were fired at Sderot, Ibim and Nir Am.

No casualties were reported. Islamic Jihad took responsibility for the attacks.
And from Skidmark, the Daily Mail has lots of photos of all the things reported above.

The PIJ is saying they launched 100 rockets toward Israel
That was then. Subsequently 140 was claimed, no doubt later it will be even more. The question is how many landed on their fellow Gazans, and how many actually managed to do any damage in Israel. See here for links to all of today’s posts on Operation Breaking Dawn.
