'Taliban Formed Group to Perform Targeted Killings', 17 arrested: MoI
[ToloNews] A group of 100 people under the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
's command is involved in the assassinations in cities across Afghanistan, said Tariq Arian, a front man for the Ministry of Interior (MoI).

At least 17 of this group’s members who were arrested by the security forces have confessed, said Arian, adding that "the 17 members of this terrorist network, who were recently arrested by the security forces.... have confessed that they are part of the group of 100."

"The Taliban have ordered them to be part of the assassinations," Arian said.

The Taliban said that no civilians have been hurt in their assassinations.

There has been a major increase in assassinations in cities, especially in Kabul, and figures from the MoI indicate that at least 70 non-combatants were killed, and more than 140 others were maimed in the last two weeks in magnetic mine and roadside mine blasts in the country.

Amir Gul, a member of the Afghan parliament, said he believed that the assassinations have increased in the country due to Afghanistan’s peace negotiations that are currently underway in Doha, 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.

"The terror that is happening now is connected to the Taliban. (The Taliban) are always doing something to gain more over there (in negotiations)," he said.

On Sunday, two officers of the Ministry of Defense (MoD) were killed in an attack by unknown button men in the Bagram area of Kabul city.

Hamdullah Arbab, front man and commissioner for the Access to Information Commission, was targeted but survived a magnetic IED blast in Kabul. His driver was killed, and his security guard was maimed in the blast.

"Continuing the terror can also be due to the lack of access of our intelligence to such incidents or due to their negligence," said Abdul Rahman Wardak, another MP.

Most of the magnetic and roadside mine blasts have not been claimed by any group, including the Taliban.

Kabul’s Khak-e-Jabar District Still Dangerous Despite Operations
[ToloNews] Security officials said the Khak-e-Jabar district in the southwest of Kabul has been cleared of the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
, but the group poses threats to security forces by random attacks.

The bandidos holy warriors recently captured some remote parts of the district that are around 48 kilometers from the city of Kabul. The Taliban infiltrated into the district from Nangarhar

TOLOnews’ Anisa Shaheed accompanied by security forces this week visited Khwajakhil outpost in Chakari district in Khak-e-Jabar district that was under Taliban control a year ago. Now, it is the last outpost of the Afghan forces in the district.

"They were here. We established these outposts here and they escaped," Shir Mohammad Sangaryar, commander of an army in the province.

Khak-e-Jabar district police chief Noor Rahman Sarjang said the Afghan forces conducted an operation in Surobi district—in Khak-e-Jabar’s neighboring—that reduced attacks by the group on his district.

"Sometimes they come through the Wochtangi area, they come from Surobi and attack our outpost," Sarjang said.

Sahib Gul, a resident of the village, recalled "improper" treatment by the Taliban when they had it under their influence.

"My two sons were working in Kabul, but they could not come to their hometown due to the threats," Sahib Gul said.

The residents as well as the police chief of the district said the Taliban established a court in Chakari district during their rule in the area where they trialed "suspects" and that even now, they make contacts with tribal elders and ask them to give them their part from some development projects that are implemented in the village.

"They killed soldiers and issued orders from this court," said Hasibllah Chakari, a policeman in Khak-e-Jabar.

The district has an estimated population of 15,000, according to government figures. Some army soldiers in Khwajakhil outpost said they recently witnessed heavy festivities against the Taliban.

"The Taliban’s place is not clear. They hide behind hills or anywhere else, they attack and then they escape," said Nazif Hashimi, an army commander in Khak-e-Jabar.

Violence has increased in the country as the peace negotiations are underway in Doha. The high level of violence was condemned by the US charge de affaires and EU mission in Afghanistan among other diplomatic offices in Kabul. The country has witnessed two huge explosions—in Nangarhar and Laghman

Prosecution says Luxor's El-Rawi killed while resisting arrest; investigation underway
[AlAhram] Egypt's public prosecution said on Tuesday that Egyptian citizen Ewis El-Rawi was killed while resisting arrest at his home in a Luxor village.

In the first official statement concerning the killing, which took place on 30 September and has since sparked controversy on social media, the prosecution said that it is still conducting its investigation into the incident.

"The public prosecution had authorised the arrest of [El-Rawi] and [some of his] relatives to question them on terrorism related charges, which were based on investigations by the National Security Department," the statement said.

The prosecution said that is was notified that El-Rawi was killed while attempting to resist the taskforce, that was dispatched to his home to execute the arrest warrant, with an automatic firearm that found next to his body.
"Habibi, bring out the shuttergun and 4 rounds of bullet for the photos!"
The prosecution added that it has questioned three people over the incident: the officer leading the taskforce, the dear departed's brother, who was arrested during the operation, and his father.

The three parties gave conflicting statements, the prosecution said, adding that it is not providing details about the statements "in order to preserve the integrity of the investigation until its conclusion, and to ensure that the truth is revealed."

The prosecution also said that El-Rawi's father has denied rumours that his son died defending him from an attack by a policeman.

The prosecution’s statement warned of fake news "that harms public peace and affects the integrity of investigations."

Are you wondering, this is an example of what it will be like after a week of the Elections Results are still being dragged thru courts yet?


2 for 1 RANT
and my individual observations.


Attended a Gun Show down here in Middle Ga. over the weekend. I saw 100's of cheaply built AR's and etc all being sold for 3 to 4x's the usual amount. .223 Ammo @ $1 a round with 20 to a zip lock baggy. 12ga OO $1.25 ea., 50cal rds $4.50 to $5 ea.

I also noticed, given the MAGA wearing attire vs. sagging pants/BLM T-shirts. The crowd buying stuff was running about a 60/40 mix.

Note: This is not a White vs. Black observation. Because we had a lot of older Black Citizens and Military there. Roughly about 1/3 of them wearing US Flag stuff and even Pro-Trump items.

Also noted a lot of outside private buys and trades that seem to be running mostly that of the abrasively dressed 40%.

In a few cases this collection was paying premium $$$ for cheap used loose matching parts 9mm's. Even over new weapon dealer retail prices.

My point... It is clear...IF... we have a major issue leading up to and after the National Election, the Anti-USA part of the population has been arming themselves also.

Anyone can be armed and shoot. Can they execute fire and movement? Can they do small unit maneuvers? Can they read terrain? Do they know how to interlock fires and have clear firing lanes?

Now how many of those who do are going to be on the divide?
