O’Donnell said: "Approximately 30 mortar rounds from two separate, but nearby locations in Kabul's Police District 8. Afghan forces responded swiftly to the attack with coordinated combined arms, which speaks to growing capabilities of the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces under the NATO ...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

With the thud of rockets in the background, Ghani interrupted his speech and said: "If they are thinking the rocket attack will keep Afghans down, they are wrong."
O’Donnell meanwhile said: "Such an auspicious day, Eid al-Adha, should be marked with blessings, not bombs."
Afghan officials meanwhile said six people had been maimed in the attack. According to the Kabul Garrison Chief Gen. Murad Ali Murad only two murderous Moslems had been involved.

[DAWN] Armed assailants injured several coppers in attacks in three locations in the Russian republic of Chechnya on Monday, as the bully boyIslamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference.

They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems.... group grabbed credit.
Russia’s Investigative Committee said it had launched probes into three separate attacks against police, including a failed suicide kaboom.
In the first attack on Monday morning, two men entered the district police department in the town of Shali and maimed a pair of coppers with knives, Sherlocks said in a statement.
The two assailants were rubbed out, Chechnya’s interior ministry said.
In the village of Mesker-Yurt north of Shali, a man with a backpack attempted a suicide kaboom near a police post but "coppers and civilians were not harmed by the blast", the Investigative Committee said.
The third incident occurred on the outskirts of the Chechen capital Grozny, where a man attempted to run over a traffic policeman in his car and subsequently hit two more officers as he was chased.
"The criminals were neutralised," the Investigative Committee said.
IS grabbed credit for the attacks, the SITE monitoring group reported, citing the jihadists’ main propaganda agency Amaq.
"Fighters from the Islamic State attacked Chechen coppers and elements in Grozny and Shali in Mesker-Yurt," Amaq said, according to SITE.

He said the attacks were staged on Monday to "darken" the festivities ahead of Tuesday, when Moslems begin to celebrate the Eidul Azha holiday.

[AlMasdar] A Chechen jihadist was given a lenient sentence by the German courts, Monday, after it was found that he had fought with the Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're 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 the pols talk they're not really Moslems.... (ISIS) in Syria.
According to a report from Kurdistan 24, Aslanbek S. (29), a Chechen jihadist who fought with the Islamic State (IS) in the Kurdish city of Kobani, was sentenced to four years and two months in a German jail.
The Chechen ISIS member was reportedly living with his wife and two children in Bremen, Germany before he was nabbed I ain't sayin' nuttin' widdout me mout'piece! by the local authorities.
The German newspaper, Weser Kurier, reported that the Chechen ISIS member would frequently visit the Islamic Cultural Center in Bremen, which was under tight surveillance by the local authorities.
The newspaper reported that he fought with a Chechen ISIS unit, Katiba Badr, from March 2014 to January 2015, when the terrorist group was defeated at Kobani.
The Chechen ISIS member would then flee to Germany, where he was eventually arrested after the German authorities raided the Islamic Cultural Center in February 2015.

[IsraelTimes] Father praises Wa'ed Tamimi, 22, for being on 'path of resistance,' month after sister and mother released from jail in soldier-slapping incident
An Israeli military court on Monday sentenced the brother of Ahed Tamimi
...the blond, blue-eyed Arab-Israeli maiden who along with siblings and young cousins in the boisterous village of Nabi Saleh has made a hobby of being filmed screaming at and physically attacking Israeli soldiers, urged on by well-known Fatah activist Bassem Tamimi, her papa...
to 14 months behind bars for throwing stones at security forces in two festivities over the last three years.
Wa’ed Tamimi, 22, was nabbed Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw! in May over an incident that took place the previous year, in March 2017, in which he and others from his village of Nabi Saleh hurled stones at an army jeep that had gotten stuck in the town.
According to the indictment against Tamimi, a soldier suffered a hand injury as a result of the rock throwing.
The verdict came less than a month after Tamimi’s sister Ahed Tamimi and mother Nariman Tamimi were released for prison for hitting a soldier in a case that drew international attention.
In handing down its sentence ‐ which was first reported by the Kan public broadcaster ‐ Judge Rani Amar said he took into account a similar clash in which Wa’ed Tamimi took part in January 2016. For that incident, he was given a 12-month suspended sentence.
Amar accepted the plea agreement reached between the defense and the prosecution in which Tamimi agreed to serve 14 months behind bars ‐ eight months for the 2017 incident and six months for the 2016 one.
The 22-year-old was fined NIS 7,500 ($1,914) and given another 12-month suspended sentence over the next five years where he will be expected to not participate in any festivities with IDF troops.
In a final statement after the plea agreement was announced in court, Tamimi assured Amar that "there would not be a third incident."
While the typical sentence for stone-throwing that does not cause injury is six to 18 months behind bars, a spokeswoman for Tamimi’s attorney Gaby Lasky said that the prosecution had agreed to a lighter punishment for her client after inconsistencies arose in eyewitness accounts of the clash.
[AlMasdar] The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their air force unleashed a big assault in southern Idlib, Tuesday, targeting the jihadist rebel positions near the Hama provincial border.
Led by their 11th Tank Division, the Syrian Arab Army heavily bombarded the jihadist trenches that were raised near the towns of Sukeek and al-Taman’ah.
The Syrian Arab Army would then expand their assault to the northern countryside of Hama, where they fired several missiles and artillery shells towards the Jaish al-Izza towns of al-Lataminah, Zakat, and Kafr Zita.
While the ground troops hammered both southern Idlib and northern Hama, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) launched several Arclight airstrikes between the towns of Ma’arat al-Nu’man and Khan Sheikhoun.
The main road between Ma’arat al-Nu’man and Khan Sheikhoun is one of the most important supply routes for Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham in the southern countryside of Idlib.
[AlMasdar] The leadership of radical groups in Syria openly declares the preparation for an offensive against Syrian government forces and refuses to hold any sort of dialogue on political settlement, Maj. Gen. Alexei Tsygankov, head of the Russian Center for Syrian Reconciliation, said Tuesday.
"The command of ’National Liberation Army’ [Organization for the Liberation of the Levant, formerly Jabhat Fateh al-Sham ...formerly al-Nusra, the current false nose and mustache of al-Qaeda in the Levant, now something else... or the Nusra Front, a terror group outlawed in Russia] ’National Front for the Liberation of Syria’ and ’National Front for Liberation’ openly declares preparations for an offensive against government forces and rejects any dialogue on political settlement of the conflict," Tsygankov said at a briefing.
Tsygankov reiterated again that the Russian Reconciliation Center calls on commanders of Lion of Islam groups to abandon armed provocations and choose the path of a peaceful settlement in the areas under their control.
Alexei Tsygankov also said that murderous Moslems had detained more than 500 supporters of the dialogue with Damascus in Syria’s Idlib de-escalation zone in the past two weeks, and that the fate of most of them was unknown.
"Arrests of supporters of political dialogue with Damascus among the local population and opposition commanders on the territory of the Idlib de-escalation zone continue. The number of citizens detained by murderous Moslems from radical groups in the last two weeks has already exceeded 500. The detainees are being taken away to an unknown destination, the fate of most of them is unknown," Tsygankov said.
Right out of WWI and the Iraqi army's recent game plan last century and early this one. With equally horrendous results for the dinosaurs of islam.
Even better than Planned Parenthood in reducing their numbers 'cuz there will be horribly crippled and disfigured advertisements for the recruiting program. Allah willing, of course.
[AlMasdar] The jihadist rebels attempted to advance in the northern countryside of Latakia last night, a military source told al-Masdar News.
Led by Jabal al-Islam, the jihadist rebels attempted to catch the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) off guard near the large hilltop of Tal Ziwaqiyat near the Ottoman Turkish border.
However, there's more than one way to skin a cat... the attack would ultimately be repulsed by the Syrian Armed Forces after a short battle with the jihadist rebels last night.
The Syrian Arab Army was able to prepare for this jihadist attack after one of their reconnaissance drones captured footage of Jabal al-Islam’s movements in northern Latakia.
Jabal al-Islam has launched several attacks like this in the past, with many of them being often successful in the Jabal al-Turkmen region of Latakia.
[AlMasdar] The Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're 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 the pols talk they're not really Moslems.... (ISIS) terror organization has refused to surrender their last positions in southern Syria, despite being fully surrounded by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
Over the course of 72 hours, the Islamic State has managed to repel all of the Syrian Arab Army’s attempted advances at the strategic al-Safa Mountain.
While the Syrian military has the superior numbers and air power, the Islamic State possesses the territorial advantage, which is includes the high ground over east Sweida.
As a result of the Islamic State’s territorial advantage, the Syrian Arab Army has been forced to meticulously move through this rugged terrain in east Sweida.
Below is a video from the Syrian Arab Army’s ongoing attack against the Islamic State in the Badiya al-Sham region of the Sweida Governorate:
Actually, video is at the headline link, where it is indeed below that particular bit of text.

[AnNahar] Targeted killings and kidnappings for ransom have for months rattled Syria's Idlib province, with angry residents blaming dominant rebel and jihadist forces for the chaos.
Even as the regime says it aims to retake the northwestern province on The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire.... 's border, its inhabitants are falling victim to infighting between the rival groups controlling most of it.
