Somali pirates hijack Panama-flagged ship : Regional Official
Business has been slow in the pirate biz of late, for some reason.
[AlAhram] Somali pirates have hijacked a Panama-flagged ship, a regional official told Rooters on Thursday, the first successful hijack since 2017.

The ship was travelling from the United Arab Emirates to Mogadishu port when it appeared to develop mechanical problems. said Musse Salah, the governor of Gardafu region in the semi-autonomous northern region of Puntland
...a region in northeastern Somalia, centered on Garowe in the Nugaal province. Its leaders declared the territory an autonomous state in 1998. Puntland and the equally autonomous Somaliland seem to have avoided the clan rivalries and warlordism that have typified the rest of Somalia, which puts both places high on the list for Islamic subversion...
It was attacked by six pirates on Wednesday night, he said. The number and nationality of the crew was unclear but discussions were under way to free them, he said.

At the height of their power in 2011, Somali pirates launched 237 attacks off the coast of Somalia, the International Maritime Bureau says, and held hundreds of hostages.

Attacks later sharply subsided, mainly because shipping firms implemented better security protocols, including posting look-outs, sailing further away from Somalia, and hiring private security. International warships operating as part of a coalition also helped to drive down the number of attacks.

Ansarallah forces kill high-ranking ISIS leader in Yemen
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Ansarallah Movement announced on Thursday that their forces killed 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....
’s top emir in 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...
.In statement released by al-Masirah TV, the Ansarallah Movement said they killed the Islamic State emir and the arrest of another leader in a powerful operation in the al-Bayada Governorate this week.

The Ansarallah forces reportedly carried out the ambush operation in the Qifah District, resulting in the killing of the ISIS emir, Abu al-Walid al-Adani.

They said their forces also killed a number of murderous Moslems from the Islamic State during the powerful operation in central Yemen this week.

They indicated, "Last Monday, the Sana’a forces were able to cleanse the areas of Hama Awaja and Hama al-Qah at the Qifah front from ISIS elements."

The Ansarallah forces have been advancing inside al-Bayda for several days, as they have managed to capture at least 80 percent of the governorate after intense festivities with the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) and al-Qaeda.

Hashem Abedi, brother of Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi has been sentenced to at least 55 years for murders of 22 people in 2017 terrorist attack
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

Salman’s baby bro and bomb assistant, he was arrested for cause in Tripoli, where he was pretending to have nothing to do with that messy nonsense back home. Scion of the Manchester Libyan jihadi crowd. The parental generation ties back to the al-Qaeda-aligned Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in the 1990s, while the kids pledged to the even more romantic ISIS. Not that it makes much difference in the end — the networks overlap personnel-wise, it’s just a matter of the name on the checking account paying their expenses. And now, after snubbing the sentencing hearing yesterday, the unbelievers went and sentenced him anyway.

Israeli warplanes carried out Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s in Gaza early Friday morning, capping off a night that saw multiple rounds of rocket launches and reprisal raids as simmering tensions threatened to break into the open.

The Israel Defense Forces said at around 6 a.m. that fighter jets and other aircraft carried out strikes on "underground infrastructure belonging to the Hamas, a regional Iranian catspaw, terror group."

The raid was the third of the night, after two earlier sorties targeted a cement facility used to provide materials for tunnels used by Gazook terror groups, and a site where rockets are produced.

The Shehab news outlet, which is linked to the Hamas terror group which rules the enclave, reported at least one person was injured during the strikes east of Khan Younis, in southern Gaza.

The military said the strike was in response to seven rockets fired at Israel some three hours earlier, six of which were shot down by the Iron Dome anti-missile system. Another five rockets were shot at Israel late Thursday, two of which failed to reach Israeli territory and three of which were shot down by the Iron Dome system, according to the military.

The night of fighting capped a day in which at least 42 fires were sparked by balloon-borne incendiary devices lofted from Gaza, according to the Fire and Rescue Service. A statement from the fire service said most of the blazes were small and didn’t pose any danger to people or property.

The apparent uptick in fighting late Thursday and early Friday comes amid truce efforts being brokered by Egypt.

A ceasefire in place for years, which has already been renewed several times, is bolstered by millions of dollars in financial aid from Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
to Gaza. But complaints from Hamas that Israel has failed to live up to its side of the bargain have been accompanied by sporadic flare-ups on the border.

The truce provided for permits for Gazooks to work in Israel and financing for Gaza development projects, both measures that would provide some economic relief in an impoverished territory where unemployment exceeds 50 percent.

Sources told AFP the twin issues were at the root of the latest flare-up.

A source close to Hamas said the Israeli government told the Egyptian delegation it expected a "return to calm" before considering implementation of truce provisions such as "the extension of the eastern Gaza industrial zone" and the construction of a new power line to the territory.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Iran announces seizure of UAE ship
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Iranian Foreign Ministry has announced that the United Arab Emirates regrets the incident and that it is ready to compensate for the damage.

Tehran said that it had captured a United Arab Emirates (UAE) ship and detained its crew over alleged violation of Iranian territorial waters on Monday, according to the Islamic Theocratic Republic’s state TV.

The news outlet also cited the Iranian Foreign Ministry as saying in a statement that the UAE had expressed regret over the incident and is ready to compensate for the damage.

The incident reportedly saw the UAE coasties firing at Iranian boats and killing two Iranian fishermen on Monday.

"On Monday, an Emirati ship was seized by the border guards of Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
and its crew were detained due to illegal traffic in our country’s waters. On the same day, UAE guards rubbed out two Iranian fishermen and seized a boat [...]. The UAE has expressed regret for the incident and in a letter on Wednesday announced its readiness to pay compensation", the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s statement pointed out.

Earlier on Thursday, the Ministry reportedly said that it had summoned an UAE envoy in connection with the killing of Iranian fishermen.

The Emirates’ state-run WAM news agency, in turn, reported on Monday that that several Iranian fishing boats had allegedly entered UAE waters near Sir Bu Nair Island in the Persian Gulf.

After the vessels did not stop when ordered to do so, "rules of engagement were applied," WAM added without elaborating.

The developments came after an incident in the Gulf in late June, when 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...
’s coastguard fired warning shots at Iranian boats that refused to stop, said the country’s state news agency SPA.
