Reporter Discovers 'Thousands' in Kabul Still Attempting to Flee, Including US Citizens and Green Card Holders
[WesternJournal] Thousands of people are still seeking to flee Afghanistan, including Americans, more than three weeks after the Biden administration (aka the Wilmington comorra)
...the gang of subgeniuses trying to pass themselves off as the adults in charge of the series of calamities characteristic of the administration of a mentally challenged geriatric case...

...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
-controlled nation.

"Thousands of people are still trying to flee Taliban-controlled Afghanistan," Fox News foreign correspondent Trey Yings wrote in a Twitter post on Thursday.

"U.S. Green Card holders. People who live and pay taxes in the United States are trapped.

"We met a man today who runs two businesses in Atlanta. He’s stuck with his family right now in Kabul," he added.

"We also talked to a group of former U.S. embassy workers," Yingst added in another tweet.

"They are still in Kabul, despite promises they would be evacuated," he added.

Especially concerning was Yingst’s report that U.S. citizens remain trapped in the country.

"There are still U.S. citizens here as well. The daughter of that man from Atlanta has a U.S. passport," Yingst tweeted.

"We’ve met multiple American passport holders still in Kabul. Some made it out on 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...
i flights, others did not," he said.

Yingst’s latest video featured one man with a green card seeking help to escape Afghanistan.

The report follows news last week of an elderly Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, couple who is returning home after being trapped in Afghanistan for weeks following the U.S. military’s departure from the country, according to California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa.

"This is a cause for celebration and the result of almost countless hours of work under very difficult conditions," Issa said in a statement.

"Our team simply would not give up, and today it paid off and we got them home."

The names of the couple are reportedly being withheld at the family’s request due to fear of violence toward relatives who remain in Afghanistan.

Issa’s office said it has helped 33 Americans and holders of American visas to escape Afghanistan.

"While we have made extraordinary progress, but we’re not stopping until everyone comes home," Issa said.

#1  This is another dart the media is going to shoot at Biden until he lets reporters ask questions again, if ever. But I think his dementia has progressed to where questions are very agitating now. His behavior is now EXTROARDINARILY suspect regarding his cognizance(sp?) for a POTUS.

French soldier killed in Mali in clash with armed terrorist group
[France24] A French serviceman was killed early on Friday in a clash with an armed militant group in Mali, French officials said.

More than 50 French soldiers have died in the region since Paris deployed a counterterrorism force in 2013 to drive back Islamist militant groups that had seized cities and towns in northern Mali.

According to a statement from the French defence ministry, the soldier who was killed, Maxime Blasco, was part of a French unit deployed to a forested area near Mali’s border with Burkina Faso.

One killed, several injured as gunmen attack church in Kaduna
[THECABLE.NG] One person was killed, while several others sustained injuries in an attack at Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA), Gabaciwa in Kachia LGA of Kaduna state.

The button men were said to have attacked worshippers during the Sunday morning service.

In another attack in Igabi LGA, one person was killed by button men in Kamacha community.

Samuel Aruwan, Kaduna commissioner for internal security and home affairs, confirmed both incidents in a statement on Sunday.

Aruwan said security agencies reported the attack to the state government, adding that the injured worshippers were taken to the hospital.

Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna, condemned the attack and said it was an attempt to cause division in the state.

"Security agencies reported to the government that the attack occurred at ECWA Church, Gabaciwa in Kachia local government area," he said.

"According to the report, a life was lost and some worshippers were seriously injured, who have been rushed to a medical facility.

"The security agencies are obtaining further details, on which the government will update the public in due course."

According to Aruwan, the governor described the incident "as an evil act targetting innocent citizens exercising their constitutional and universal rights to religious freedom".

"The governor added that the attack on the worshippers was a divisive
...politicians call things divisive when when the other side sez something they don't like. Their own statements are never divisive, they're principled...
intent of the criminals leveraging religious sensitivity," he said.

"The governor condoled the ECWA Church and the family of the dear departed in particular, and prayed for the repose of the soul of the worshipper.

"The governor, who is awaiting further reports on the incident, has directed the Kaduna State State Emergency Management Agency to assess the area and provide succour to the victims receiving medical attention."

On the attack in Igabi LGA, Aruwan said the governor condoled the family of one Nasiru Abdullahi of Gobirawan Kamacha in Bina general area, who was killed by button men.

"As of the time of this update, government is awaiting other situation reports from security agencies," he added.

But the Houthis have refused to engage in ceasefire talks. The Houthis have rejected a meeting with the UN special envoy for Yemen, escalated an offensive on one of the final government strongholds in the north of Yemen and continuously attack Saudi Arabia with bomb-laden drones and missiles.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Palestinians fly Nazi flag near Hebron; IDF soldiers shoot it down
[IsraelTimes] Incident marks latest use of swastika symbol in protests against Israel amid rising tensions in West Bank.

Paleostinian protesters hung a Nazi flag bearing the swastika symbol in the West Bank village of Beit Ummar near Hebron on Saturday.

The flag was attached to electrical cables near an Israel Defense Forces post.

Video from the scene showed IDF soldiers shooting the flag down.

In August this year, Paleostinians protesting against an illegal Israeli outpost in the West Bank set fire to a Star of David combined with a swastika.

In 2018, Paleostinians at the Gaza border flew a kite marked with a swastika and carrying a petrol bomb into Israel.

Saturday’s incident came amid rising tensions in the region, with a spike in violence in recent months in the West Bank.

A day earlier, a 27-year-old Paleostinian man was killed by live fire during festivities with Israeli soldiers near the West Bank town of Beita, the Paleostinian Authority health ministry said.

Another eight Paleostinians were maimed by rubber-coated bullets, the Paleostinians’ official Wafa news agency reported.

The Israeli army said in a statement that its forces had responded to violent mostly peaceful festivities near the Evyatar outpost where hundreds of Paleostinians participated, including some who burned tires and threw stones at troops.

Hamas cell hit in West Bank raids planned massive Jerusalem terror attack – TV
[IsraelTimes] Well-organized network was reportedly planning a series of kidnappings and murders across the country.

Raids that targeted alleged members of a Hamas, the braying voice of Islamic Resistance®, cell in the West Bank overnight Saturday, and killed five Paleostinian suspects, prevented a major terror attack reminiscent of the Second Intifada, officials told Hebrew-language television networks.

The cell planned to conduct a sequence of kidnappings and murders across the country, defense officials told Channel 13 news. The group did not, however, have the capability to commit suicide kabooms, the network said.

Officials estimated to Channel 12 that the cell had also been planning a major attack in Jerusalem, similar to those seen during the violent mostly peaceful uprising in the early 2000s, without elaborating further.

The arrest operation began after the Shin Bet realized that the group was apparently set to carry out the attack imminently, the network said.

The Israel Defense Forces believes some members of the Hamas cell are still on the loose. In total, some 20 suspected members of the cell have been arrested in recent days, according to the military.

-ruling Hamas terror group, Channel 12 said. The cell was well organized and decentralized, the network added.

The operations against the cell in the West Bank will likely continue in the coming days, officials told the Kan public broadcaster. But still, the IDF believes it largely prevented the group’s attacks, according to military assessments.

According to the IDF, at least seven suspected members of the Hamas cell were arrested during arrest raids overnight Saturday, and at least five other suspected bad boyz were potted after they shot up IDF troops. Five guns were also confiscated in the raids, along with large amounts of ammunition. Several other members of the group had been arrested on the preceding nights.

The IDF is also investigating the circumstances in which two soldiers were seriously injured in a shootout and increasingly believe that they were hit by friendly fire, after a Paleostinian gunman shot up them.

"This is a significant achievement, a night of a series of preemptive raids of the utmost importance that prevented — from our understanding — significant terror attacks. Such attacks could have been carried out in Jerusalem, Netanya, Tel Aviv, Afula or anywhere else," IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi said on Sunday afternoon, speaking from the Israel Defense Forces’ Menashe Regional Brigade headquarters in the northern West Bank, following a situational assessment.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett confirmed that the Hamas cell was planning to carry out terror attacks imminently.

"Security forces acted tonight in Judea and Samaria against Hamas murderous Moslems who were poised to carry out terror attacks in the immediate future," Bennett said in a statement, en route to New York to speak at the United Nations
...an idea whose time has gone...
General Assembly, using the biblical term for the West Bank.

The IDF refused to comment more specifically on what the alleged Hamas cell was suspected of planning to do, but said that most of the members were arrested with weapons in their possession and that some of them had shot up Israeli troops during the raids.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Two inmates found dead in Iranian prison south of Tehran
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Iranian prison authorities confirmed the deaths of two inmates within a week at a jail south of the capital and opened investigations into the circumstances.

"A committee has been set up to probe the death of Amir-Hossein Hatami in Grand Tehran prison," penitentiary authorities in the capital announced in a brief statement issued late Saturday.

The Ghanoun newspaper said Hatami was a 22-year who worked in Tehran bazaar and had been arrested after getting into a fight.

On Thursday, the chief of Iran’s prisons, Mohammad-Mehdi Hadj-Mohammadi, ordered an investigation into the death of Chahine Nasseri, another inmate of Grand Tehran, located some 30 kilometers (20 miles) from the capital.

Hadj-Mohammadi last month acknowledged cases of "unacceptable behavior" after footage of prison guards beating and mistreating detainees was reportedly obtained by hackers who accessed surveillance cameras at Tehran’s Evin prison.

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.

Russia Raids Kill 7 Pro-Turkish Fighters in Syria
[AnNahar] At least seven fighters from a pro-Ottoman Turkish rebel group were killed Sunday in Russian air raids in northern Syria, a war monitor said Sunday.

The strikes hit a "military base" for the al-Hamza Division outside the north Syria town of Afrin which has been under the control of The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
and its Syrian rebel proxies since 2018, said the Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

"Seven fighters were killed and another 13 were maimed in the Russian strikes," said the monitor, which relies on a network of sources inside Syria.

It said the corpse count could climb further amid ongoing efforts to pull victims from the rubble.

Observatory head Rami Abdul Rahman said such Russian raids are rare in this region of Syria, which has been controlled by Turkey and its Syrian rebel allies for three years.

A Russian raid outside Afrin last month targeted a position for Faylaq al-Sham, another Turkey-backed rebel group, he said.

A spokesperson for the National Army, a coalition of Turkey-backed rebel groups, called Sunday's attack a "clear message from Russia" to Turkey, showing that there are no "red lines".

Russia, on the other hand, is a staunch supporter of the Syrian regime and has intervened militarily in support of Assad since 2015.

Although they back opposite sides, Ankara and Moscow have worked together to broker several ceasefire deals in Syria's northwest, including a 2020 ceasefire agreement in the Idlib region, the country's last major opposition bastion.

Iran: Fire at Islamic Revolutionary Guard facility injures 3 - report
[JPost] Odd, that.
A series of explosions and fires have hit industrial sites across Iran, including a number of petrochemical plants, in recent months and over the past year.

A fire broke out in one of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) research centers in the west of Tehran on Sunday evening, state media said.

"On Sunday evening a fire broke out in one of the IRGC ... research centers in the west of Tehran. Three people were injured and the fire has been contained," Iran state TV quoted a statement from the IRGC as saying.

No reason was given for the incident.

A series of explosions and fires have hit industrial sites across Iran, including a number of petrochemical plants, in recent months and over the past year. Iranian officials have referred to most of the cases as incidents or accidents, although some reports have claimed that at least some of them involved foul play.

Aging infrastructure in Iran has also been blamed for at least some of the incidents. Frequent blackouts have plagued Iran recently amid a heatwave.

KENYON: The water and power protests long predate the election of President Ebrahim Raisi. But they present just one of the many serious challenges facing the hard-line cleric and the government he's still assembling. Iran's economy remains deeply depressed, and progress toward getting relief from American sanctions is slow. Although talks aimed at getting the sanctions lifted are expected to resume in the coming weeks. Iranians, long-used to hardships, say relief can't come soon enough. Peter Kenyon, NPR News, Istanbul.
