province.

Reports indicate Police District 4 in Lashkargah, Sayed Abad area in Nad Ali district, and Nahr-e-Saraj area in Grishk district had all fell into the hands of the Taliban.

Some parts of Highway 601 have also reportedly been collapsed to the krazed killers’ hand, press reports.

Militants have carried coordinated attacks over the region. The festivities took place in various parts of the province, and it is reported that the battle has started since Saturday night.

Meanwhile,
...back at the chili cook-off, Chuck reached for the green sauce...
some provincial officials said the Taliban had stormed the fourth security district of the province last night, but a front man for the Helmand governor denied.

Omar Zwak, a front man for Helmand governor, told the media that security forces had carried out Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s against Taliban, inflicting heavy casualties to the krazed killers.

He also said that fresh military troops have been deployed in the Nawa district of Helmand province, where they carried out airstrikes in Momin Khan Square, killing more than 20 Death Eaters.

On the other hand, it is reported that at least 200 Taliban-affiliated members were killed in the last 10 days in Helmand Province.
If that is a real number, it’s quite impressive.
Reports indicate some freed Taliban members upon the Peace agreement had taken part in the battle.

The Taliban have not yet commented on the incident.

Highway Closed, Power Cut Off in Helmand Fighting
[ToloNews] At least "71 Taliban" were killed fighting in Nawa and Nahr-e-Saraj districts of Helmand province, said Tariq Arian, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior (MoI), on Monday. However, Arian did not provide further details about the possible Afghan security forces casualties in the clashes.

Also on Monday, a power substation in Helmand was damaged in ongoing fighting in the province, cutting electric power to Kandahar and Helmand, said the provincial head of DABS, Wahidullah Alizai. Alizai said employees of the substation have been taken captive by the Taliban.

On Sunday night, A military operation involving commandos and air support was carried out in various parts of Helmand province, including the Babaji area and Nad Ali district, said the provincial governor's office.

A member of the provincial council of Helmand said that a number of the security checkpoints around Lashkargah city, capital of the province, have fallen to the Taliban.

The Taliban's designated deputy governor for Helmand, Mawlawi Ghafoor, who reportedly led the recent fighting against govt forces in the province, was arrested by security forces in Nahr-e- Saraj district on Sunday evening, said the Helmand governor's office. The Helmand governor's office said that Mawlawi Ghafoor was among those prisoners recently released by the Afghan govt as part of the peace process.

On Sunday, heavy clashes occurred on the outskirts of Lashkargah, resulting in the fall of city police district 4 to the Taliban, according a member of the provincial council. Local officials, however, said it was a tactical retreat.

The head of Helmand's provincial council, Ataullah Afghan, said that some parts of Highway 601—that connects Lashkargah with Kandahar province—also fell to militants. The highway has remained closed to traffic for the last three days following clashes, according to officials and TOLOnews’ Abdullah Hamim.

Other areas that have witnessed clashes between the Afghan forces and the Taliban over the last three days include the Chah Anjir area of Lashkargah and Nad Ali district.

Ghani: Helmand Battle will Cost Taliban Heavy
[KhaamaPress] President Ashraf Ghani
...former chancellor of Kabul University, now president of Afghanistan. Before returning to Afghanistan in 2002 he was a scholar of political science and anthropology. He worked at the World Bank working on international development assistance. As Finance Minister of Afghanistan between July 2002 and December 2004, he led Afghanistan's attempted economic recovery until the Karzais stole all the money...
told Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
Governor Gen. Mohammad Yasin that the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
would make the fighting in Helmand difficult.

Yasin wrote on his Facebook page that President Ghani had spoken to him a few minutes ago about the situation in Helmand and assured him that he had ordered the security agencies to take Helmand seriously.

"The war in Helmand will be very difficult for the enemies of the country," he posted.

This comes as fierce fighting broke out between Afghan cops and the Taliban in the center and districts of Helmand province on Sunday morning, which is still ongoing and both sides are claiming inflicting heavy casualties on each other.

Europe
Karlsruhe: Gambian slits the throat of 22-year-old German
Hat tip Bright Pebbles.
[FreeWestMedia] Germany is shaken up every day in different ways by new "ethnically diverse individual acts". And it is no longer different in the leftwing SPD-ruled, anti-German Karlsruhe.

On Wednesday morning, a 32-year-old Gambia
... The Gambia is actually surrounded by The Senegal on all sides but its west coast. It has a population of about 1.7 million. The difference between the two is that in colonial days Senegal was ruled by La Belle France and The Gambia (so-called because there's only one of it, unlike Guinea, of which there are the Republic of Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, New Guinea, the English coin in circulation between 1663 and 1813, and Guyana, which sounds like it should be another one) was ruled by Britain...
n attacked a German in the city. The murder weapon was a beer bottle, which the African not only used to strike with, but also to slit open the victim’s throat.
According to the CIA World Factbook, Gambia’s population is 96% Muslim.
The act took place in the bus stop area of ​​Karlsruhe main station. There the Gambian hit the 22-year-old on the head several times until the bottle broke. In the further course of the attack, the victim is said to have been severely injured in the neck area.

Fortunately, the young man survived and was immediately taken to the nearest hospital. The African migrant was arrested and brought before the competent local court. The cause of the dispute was not given.

The war against native Germans has been going on in Karlsruhe for quite some time now and has been very effective. But city authorities remain more concerned about the well-being of foreign "enrichment" than about the fact that this city is no longer safe.

Seven-time Portland riot arrestee deletes videos of herself participating in toppling of statues
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] A serial riot arrestee has deleted her Twitter account implicating herself posing with the toppled Roosevelt statue on the "Indigenous Day of Rage" in Portland.

47-year-old Tracy Lynn Molina—also known by her Indigenous name, Cozacachuatli "Tia" Chicome—was arrested seven times at violent mostly peaceful Antifa
...the armed wing of the Democratic Party...
protests since George Floyd's death in May, The Post Millennial's editor-at-large Andy Ngo reported. Her charges are always dropped by local prosecutors.

Using the since-deleted Twitter account, @AndyNgoSUCKS, Molina posed in a picture with the defaced presidential sculpture after onlookers cheered as the statue of President Theodore Roosevelt riding on horseback was thrusted from its pedestal. "Stolen Land" was spray painted over the 26th U.S. president's "Rough Rider" headstone. Molina propped one arm over the orange pool oozing down the memorial.

"No more colonizers. No more NeoColonizers. F— 12! F— white supremacy
...the pernicious doctrine that laws were intended to be obeyed, that society works better when people don't pour shreiking from their places of worship every Friday for a weekend of rioting over insults real or imagined; and that cannibalism, beastiality, incest, murder, theft, rape, and similar activities are bad. A Dead White European (which invalidates his opinion) philosopher once opined that societies thrive when a person's word can be relied upon, and that a society which puts individual happiness first will invariably fail. Strangely enough, other successful societies, such as China, Japan, Korea, and those kinds of places could also be lumped with white supremacist societies, since they push the same values...
, f— the MAGA who follow the European American rule of these homelands is over! Its time to save the Salmon, save the Chuush, save all Indigenous Peiple Alaska to Argentina
...a country located on the other side of the Deep South. It is covered with Pampers and inhabited by Grouchos, who dance the Tangle. They used to have some islands called the Malvinas located where the Falklands are now. They're not supposed to cry for Evita...
," Molina captioned a removed video of Roosevelt's takedown.

Turkey: 5 Daesh/ISIS suspects to be deported
[AA.TR] Ottoman Turkish authorities on Monday ordered the deportation of five suspects arrested in counter-terrorism operations against the ISIS/ISIS terror group.
Police officers in the central Cankiri province last Friday arrested five suspects, including four of Syrian origin.

One of the suspects was alleged to be handling financial matters for the terrorist group.

In 2013, The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor...
became one of the first countries to declare ISIS/ISIS a terrorist group.

The country has since been attacked by ISIS/ISIS holy warriors multiple times, with at least 10 suicide kabooms, seven kabooms, and four armed attacks which killed 315 people and injured hundreds more.

In response, Turkey launched anti-terror operations at home and abroad to prevent further attacks.
