[Statement from POTUS] This will confirm for the first time that Ibrahim al-Asiri, a senior al-Qa’ida bomb maker and terrorist coordinator, was killed two years ago in a United States counterterrorism operation in Yemen. Al-Asiri built explosive devices that were used in the failed Christmas Day 2009 underwear bomb attack and the disrupted printer cartridge bomb plot in 2010. He also built an explosive device intended to be used against a passenger aircraft in 2012, and the device used in the attempted assassination of the former Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. Al-Asiri’s death significantly handicapped al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula. The United States will continue to hunt down terrorists like al-Asiri until they no longer pose a threat to our great Nation.

The Underwear Bomber, What fucking ignominy, at least go down with a daring nym. 'Pasha Al-Pubis' or something the guy who actually wore Al-Asiri's greatest hit was Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is in supermax for life.
He was found guilty of attempting to detonate plastic explosives hidden in his underwear while on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253, en route from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan, on Christmas Day, 2009.
[NY Post] As many as five people were stabbed Friday morning inside a Starbucks in the northern English city of Manchester ‐ and counter-terrorism police launched an investigation after a suspect was caught, according to reports.
"We are currently responding to an incident at the Arndale Shopping Centre in Manchester City Centre," a Greater Manchester police spokesman said, according to the Telegraph.
"A man in his 40s has been arrested on suspicion of serious assault. He has been taken to custody for questioning," he added.
There were no immediately reports of any fatalities. The five people who were stabbed were taken to a hospital after the attack.
Video footage and photographs showed heavily armed police around the Exchange Square side of the shopping complex, where officers using a Taser held a man to the ground.
In a statement, police said: "Given the location of the incident and its nature, officers from Counter Terrorism Police North West are leading the investigation as we determine the circumstances."
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The corpse count from Kurdish shelling of Ottoman Turkish towns has risen to six people dead and 70 maimed, Al Arabiya’s correspondent on the ground reported.
Earlier in the day, three people, including a child, were killed on Thursday in mortar fire that was fired from Syria to the Ottoman Turkish border town of Akcakale, hospital and security source say.
Seventeen people were maimed after rockets and mortar shells fired from Syria hit places in towns on the Ottoman Turkish side of the border on Thursday, an Al Arabiya correspondent said.
State-owned Anadolu news agency said the shells, believed to have been fired from areas controlled by a Kurdish militia in Syria being targeted by Ottoman Turkish forces, hit sites in the Ottoman Turkish towns of Akcakale, Birecik, Ceylanpinar and Nusaybin.
Syrian state media also reported that festivities are taking place between Syrian Democratic Forces and Ottoman Turkish forces in Tell Halaf n the Al Hasakah governorate of northeastern Syria.
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Ottoman Turkish police have launched criminal investigations into Kurdish politicians and detained scores of people, accusing them of criticizing the military’s incursion into Syria on social media, state media reported.Police also fired water cannon and detained dozens of activists in the mainly Kurdish southeastern city of Diyarbakir on Thursday at a protest against the cross-border assault.
The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... pounded the Kurdish YPG militia in northeast Syria for a second day on Thursday, forcing tens of thousands of people to flee and killing dozens. Ankara deems the YPG a terrorist group over its links to Lions of Islam who have waged an insurgency in Turkey.
Police in riot gear fired water cannon and then detained protesters at a rally in front of the pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) headquarters in Diyarbakir, the biggest city in the southeast. A HDP party official said police detained 25 members there, including its Diyarbakir provincial leader.
Earlier on Thursday, authorities began investigating HDP leaders and detained 21 people for criticising the military offensive online, state-owned Anadolu news agency said.
While most of Turkey’s opposition parties have backed the operation, the HDP has called for the offensive to stop, describing it as an "invasion attempt".
HDP co-leader Sezai Temelli said on Wednesday the operation was an attempt by the government to drum up support amid declining public backing. Prosecutors launched an investigation against him and HDP’s other co-leader, Pervin Buldan, over their remarks about the offensive, Anadolu said.
It said Temelli and Buldan were accused of "carrying out propaganda for a terrorist organization" and "openly insulting Turkey’s government". Three other HDP politicians were being investigated over similar charges, the news agency said.
The government accuses the HDP of ties to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) Death Eater group and thousands of its members have been prosecuted for the same reason, including its leaders. The HDP denies such links.
Hours after the operation started on Wednesday, authorities also launched investigations against 78 individuals who criticized the offensive on social media, Anadolu said.

[DAWN] A Pakistain Army soldier was martyred as the Indian army resorted to ceasefire violations from across the restive Line of Control (LoC), the military's media wing said on Thursday.
The firing also left one civilian dead and 14 others injured, officials said.
"Indian Army troops resorted to ceasefires violation in Baroh and Chirikot sector along [the] LoC. [As a result] Sepoy Naimat Wali embraced martyrdom," the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement. "Well, not exactly 'embraced'. He kinda grimaced and said 'oh shit!'. But martyrdom embraced him"
Chirikot sector is located in Azad Jammu and Kashmir ...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there.... ’s (AJK) Haveli district.
In response, the ISPR said, Pakistain Army troops targeted Indian posts, damaging them "substantially". There were reports of casualties of Indian troops, the statement added.
It was believed that the soldier was martyred on Wednesday evening, when two civilians ‐ 50-year-old Perveen Akhtar and her 15-year-old daughter Saba Tariq ‐ were also injured in Seerhiyan village of Chirikot sector.
On Thursday, Neza Pir sector of Haveli district came under heavy Indian shelling from 3pm to 6pm, and resultantly two women ‐ Naseeb Jan, 40, and Robina Bibi, 16 ‐ were maimed in Chahjal Bala and Kairni villages, respectively, police official Khalid Mahmood told Dawn from the area.
Also on Thursday, the Indian army resorted to "unprovoked" shelling in Neelum district after sunset, which left an 8-year-old boy, Faizan Mir, dead and his parents, Fayaz Mir and Zahida Bibi, injured in Changan Seri village, said Akhtar Ayub, a disaster management officer based in district headquarters Athmuqam. He added that the family's house was burnt to ashes.
Another six people were maimed in main Changan village along Neelum valley road.
[THEBAGHDADPOST] Five people were killed and seven maimed on Thursday in a gunfire and kaboom by the ISIS ...embracing their inner Islamic Brute... hard boyz in the eastern Iraqi province of Diyala, a security source said.
The attack was carried out by the bully boy ISIS hard boyz in the early hours of the day when an IS sniper rubbed out two brothers and their cousin and maimed four of their relatives in a village in the town of Khanaqin, some 165 km northeast of Iraq's capital Baghdad, Alaa al-Saadi from Diyala's police command told The Baghdad Post.
After Iraqi security forces rushed to the scene, a roadside kaboomwent kaboom! near one of their vehicles, destroying the vehicle while killing two coppers and wounding three others, al-Saadi said.
Despite repeated military operations in Diyala, IS remnants are still hiding in rugged areas near the border with 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 a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... as well as the sprawling areas extending from the western part of Diyala to the Himreen mountainous area.

[DAWN] A suspected IS radical stabbed Indonesia's chief security minister Wiranto as he was stepping out of a vehicle on Thursday, leaving two deep wounds in his stomach and injuring three others in the attack, officials said.
Television images showed security officers wrestling a man and a woman to the ground outside a university in Pandeglang on Java island after the attack on the 72-year-old, who like many Indonesians goes by one name.
"Someone approached and attacked him," National Police front man Dedi Prasetyo, adding that the couple had been arrested.
Berkah Hospital front man Firmansyah said the former military general suffered "two deep wounds" in his stomach and may need surgery, but was conscious and in stable, pH balanced condition.
Wiranto was later rushed by helicopter to the capital Jakarta.
The other three victims ‐ a local police chief and two aides ‐ had non-life threatening injuries, the hospital said.
The suspects were identified as 31-year-old Syahril Alamsyah and Fitri Andriana, 21. Police said Alamsyah had been "exposed to ISIS ...embracing their inner Islamic Brute... radicalism", without elaborating.
It was not immediately clear if either were members of one of the dozens of radical groups that have pledged loyalty to the Death EaterIslamic 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.... (IS) group in Indonesia, the world's biggest Moslem majority nation.
The attack comes just over a week before President Joko Widodo kicks off a second term after his April re-election.
In May, police said Wiranto and three other brass hats were targeted in a failed liquidation plot linked to deadly riots in Jakarta after Widodo's victory.
A group of six people ‐ arrested before they could carry out the killings ‐ planned to murder the officials and an election pollster in a bid to plunge the country into chaos, police said at the time.
Wiranto, the former chief of the armed forces and a failed presidential candidate, is a major figure in Indonesian politics. He has long been accused of human-rights violations and for crimes against humanity linked to violence following East Timor's 1999 independence referendum.
[MAIL] An Iranian oil tanker has been hit by two explosions off the coast of Saudi Arabia.
The National Iran Oil Company said a supertanker called Sabiti was struck by two missiles around 60 miles from the port of Jeddah on Friday morning.
The explosions badly damaged two tanks on board the vessel, causing it to leak into the Red Sea.
'Experts believe it was a terrorist attack,' a source told Iranian news agency ISNA.
The Nour news agency, which is close to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, said the crew was safe and had stopped the leak.
The state-owned National Iranian Tanker Company said that contrary to reports, 'there is no fire aboard the ship and the ship is completely stable'.
Tensions have been high between regional foes Iran and Saudi Arabia since an attack on the Kingdom's two oil facilities on September 14 that caused fires and damage and shutting down 5.7 million barrels per day (bpd) of production - more than 5 per cent of global oil supply.

But without corroboration, how certain are we that this was a genuine attack and not a false-flag operation?
Images released by Iran’s Petroleum Ministry appeared to show no damage to the Sabiti visible from its bridge, though they did not show the ship’s sides. Satellite images of the area showed no visible smoke.
The ministry’s SHANA news agency said no ship nor any authority in the area responded to its distress messages.
They must have been really, really, really small missiles.
[IsraelTimes] The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... ’s Erdogan claims 109 Syrian Kurdish fighters killed in offensive, though reports don’t indicate anything close to that number of casualties.
Turkey’s military offensive on northeastern Syria has displaced more than 60,000 people in less than a day, a war monitor said Thursday.
"Since Wednesday, more than 60,000 people fled border areas," the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, adding that most of the displaced traveled east toward the city of Hasakeh.
Rami Abdel Rahman, the head of the Britannia-based monitor, said the biggest displacement was from the border areas of Ras al-Ain, Tal Abyad and Derbasiyeh.
The Ottoman Turkish military, supported by Syrian proxies, launched an offensive against Kurdish-controlled areas in northeastern Syria on Wednesday, despite widespread international warnings.
After an initial phase of air strikes and artillery fire, troops moved across the border and attacked some of the key towns in the area.
A Kurdish-led group and Syrian activists said that despite the bombardment, Ottoman Turkish troops had not made much progress on several fronts they had opened. But their claims could not be independently verified, and the situation was difficult to assess.
Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First ...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important... said that so far, 109 "terrorists" were killed in the offensive, a reference to the Syrian Kurdish fighters. He did not elaborate, and reports from the area did not indicate anything remotely close to such a large number of casualties.
Ankara aims to create a buffer about 30 kilometers deep in Syria territory in which to send back some of the 3.6 million Syrians who found refuge on Ottoman Turkish soil since the start of the war in Syria in 2011.
Humanitarian organizations warned that this latest episode in the deadly eight-year-old conflict could once again have disastrous consequences on civilian populations.
"An estimated 450,000 people live within five kilometers of the Syria-Turkey border and are at risk if all sides do not exercise maximum restraint and prioritize the protection of civilians," a joint statement said.
The text signed by 14 humanitarian organizations warned thon the lam numbers of civilians could soon be cut off from the vital aid they had been receiving.
"The life-saving humanitarian response will be threatened if instability forces aid agencies to suspend or relocate their programming and staff, as is already happening," said the statement.
Among the organizations that signed the appeal were several of the largest aid providers in the area, including the Norwegian Refugee Council and Mercy Corps.
In a separate statement, the Save The Children charity warned of "an impending humanitarian disaster."
It emphasized the risks facing the children among the latest wave of displacement, which includes thousands of people who had already been uprooted multiple times since the start of the war.
"With winter around the corner, they will face additional challenges as they search for shelter," Save The Children said.

[ALMASDARNEWS] Some new reports have surfaced this evening that claim unidentified warplanes targeted the Iranian forces and their allies near the Iraqi border.
According to the reports, most notably from the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the unidentified warplanes targeted the positions of the Iranian Armed Forces and their allies near an undisclosed location along the Syrian-Iraqi border.
Neither the Iranian nor the Syrian ministries of defense have confirmed these claims.
Last month, unidentified warplanes, which were believed to be Israeli drones, bombed the border city of Albukamal on two occasions.
The attacks were carried out at night and reportedly killed dozens of Iranian and Iraqi troops in and around Albukamal.
Israel has not formally declared that it was their warplanes that carried out these attacks; however, Israeli unmanned aerial vehicles had carried out similar attacks in Beirut’s southern suburbs around the same time as these strikes.
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Ottoman Turkish troops and allied Syrian rebels have now encircled two border towns in northeast Syria held by Kurdish forces after a ground offensive that seized several villages around them, a front man for the rebels said on Thursday.
Major Youssef Hamoud said the two towns of Ras al-Ain and Tel Abyad were now encircled after the Ottoman Turkish army aided by fighters of the Syrian opposition group known as the National Army seized several villages around them.
The two towns where Arab tribes are the majority of its inhabitants are a main goal of the Ottoman Turkish military campaign to oust Kurdish-led fighters who control its area and where Ankara says it wants to set up a so-called safe zone.
[IsraelTimes] A Kurdish news agency and a war monitor say Turkish troops have bombarded a convoy of vehicles taking residents of the northern city of Raqqa to a border town, inflicting casualties among them.
The Kurdish Hawar news agency says the attack on the road leading to the border town of Tal Abyad killed three people and wounded several others.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the Turkish airstrike occurred when a convoy carrying a tribal leader reached the entrance of Tal Abyad. It says several people were wounded but that no one was killed.
[REUTERS] The Syrian Kurdish-led authorities accused The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire... of shelling a prison holding Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference.

(IS) turbans of more than 60 nationalities, calling this "a clear attempt" to help them escape.
There was no immediate comment from Turkey.
The shelling on Wednesday night targeted part of Chirkin prison in the city of Qamishli, the Kurdish-led authorities said in a statement.
"These attacks on prisons holding ISIS ...embracing their inner Islamic Brute... (IS) turbans will lead to a catastrophe the consequences of which the world may not be able to handle later on," the statement said.
The statement did not give further details.
