Afghanistan
ANDSF Mounts Counterattack in Lashkargah
[ToloNews] Afghan commandos with air support launched an operation in Lashkargah, the capital of Helmand
...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan...
province, on Monday night, local officials said on Tuesday.

The operation is still ongoing and involves the 601 highway, Nad Ali district and the Babaji area in PD4 of Lashkargah, officials said. "So far 23 Taliban
...mindless ferocity in a turban...
have been killed and the security forces have created five new checkpoints in Nad Ali district following the Taliban attack three days ago."

"Six other Taliban were maimed during the operation," officials added.

On Tuesday, US Chargé d’Affaires Ross Wilson tweeted: "I strongly second Gen. Miller’s call for the Taliban to stop its offensive in Helmand and reduce its violence around the country" and the violence "is not consistent with the US-Taliban agreement."

"It should stop so that all parties can move toward a lasting and much-needed peace for all Afghans," Ross Wilson said.

The Taliban has not commented on the operation by the security forces.

Chahar Bolak: Homes, Crops Destroyed by Fighting in Balkh
[ToloNews] Residents of Chahar Bolak district, in the northern province of Balkh, on Tuesday called on the warring sides to end the war, saying dozens of families in the area have fled their homes as festivities between the government forces and the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
rages on.

They said that homes were destroyed during recent waves of festivities between the two sides and that farmers in the area are not able to work in their fields.

Meanwhile,
...back at the comedy club, Boogie sadly admitted that he was a better peeping Tom than he was a comedian...
some residents of Chahar Bolak gathered in front of the provincial council in Mazar-e-Sharif city to protest against the conditions in their area.

"They are not allowing us to work, our crops are spoiling, the irrigation water is being wasted--we can’t come out of our homes," said Mohammad Ibrahim, a resident of Chahar Bolak.

The residents said that the warring sides are using heavy weaponry, which also impacts the local people.

Residents of Chahar Bolak said that if the current situations continue, many families will leave their homes.

"Checkpoints in the Gortepa area are causing problems for the people. There are even restrictions on the people under normal situations. This issue impacts their work and fields (agricultural lands)," said Nawab Khan, a resident of Balkh.

But security sources have rejected the claims that civilian homes were damaged in the fighting.

"Thereare measures taken by the security forces to ensure that civilians are not harmed, I must say that these people who have gathered here, their move looks like a charade, maybe they have been put up to it by the Taliban," said Mohammad Hanif Rezayee, a front man for the 209 Shaheen Army Corps.

Chimtal, Balkh, Dawlatabad, Sholgarah, Charkint and Zari and Balkh are among the districts in the province that have seen unprecedented violence in recent months

Kabul Attacks: 3 Security Force Members Killed in Past 24 Hours
[ToloNews] At least three Afghan security personnel were killed in three security incidents, involving a shooting and two explosions, in the city of Kabul over the last 24 hours amid a surge in armed robberies in the city. Armed men shot and killed an army doctor in Kabul province's Bagrami district, a police officer was killed in an IED explosion in Paghman district that targeted his vehicle on Tuesday morning, and in PD12 of Kabul city on Monday evening an IED explosion killed an army officer and maimed another.

"What was my father’s sin? He was a doctor, and he was serving the country," said Omran, son of Shaib Miskinyar, an army officer.

Miskinyar had nine children. His family blamed the security institutions for failing to ensure the safety of the people.

"Why are we living in poverty? Why is peace is not coming to this country? It is regrettable," said Nawid, a relative of the slain army officer.

"It is shameful. I would hang myself if it was me instead of (acting interior minister) Mr. Andarabi and I could not ensure the safety of Kabul," said Safiullah, a Kabul resident.

The explosion in PD12 that targeted the police vehicle in Paghman not only killed the police officer but also killed a bystander and maimed another.

"People’s comfort has vanished due to the lack of security in Kabul," said Nekbakht Fahimi, an MP.

Amid a dramatic rise in violent mostly peaceful mostly peaceful crime, Kabul police have ordered a ban on the illegal distribution of sim cards and old mobile phones in local markets. The police said 10 suspects were arrested for criminal and terrorist activities, but residents and analysts said these efforts are not enough.

"Police will fight against crime networks and criminals who jeopardize Kabul's security and they will be suppressed," Kabul police front man Ferdaws Faramarz said.

Egypt police kill two terrorists in North Sinai shootout: Ministry
One wonders what really happened, given the vagueness of the report.
[AlAhram] Two turbans have been killed in a shootout with police in North Sinai, Egypt’s Ministry of Interior said in a statement on Tuesday.

The National Security Agency had received information about a group of turbans located in a mountainous area in North Sinai where they had been planning to launch a series of attacks against police and Armed Forces checkpoints in the area.

The police located the two turbans in a white pick-up truck while they were observing a security checkpoint in preparation for launching an attack. After realising they had been surrounded by security forces, the turbans opened fire on police.

The statement added that two automatic weapons, two explosives belts, a pistol, ammunition and a walkie-talkie were found in the terrorists’ possession.

#1  if this is correct it is the first time a Houthi missile has been killed while on the ground

the Houthis could of course build camouflaged launch areas or, like Hezb launch from civilian areas

the former costs time and money, the latter might not work as the Saudi coalition might not care about Yemeni civilians very much

Azeri army's executions of own troops 'astonishes' even TERRORISTS
[ARMENPRESS.AM] The audio recording of radio communications between two Syrian mercenaries brought from The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor...
to fight from the Azerbaijani side against Artsakh has surfaced online, shedding light on the current situation in the Azeri military and the growing discontent even among these mercenaries.

The two mercenaries, who identify themselves as Abu Ismail and Abu Hassan, are heard telling each other about the fighting.

"Honest to God, our squad is gone, and now they [Azeris] are forcing us to advance again," one tells the other, mentioning that they have many victims and that the Azeri military is using them as a human shield.
Heh, you've figured out your market value
They start complaining that the Azeri military is not giving them food and not allowing them to go home and instead they are kept at the heated battle sections so that they get killed and the Azeris don’t have to pay them. One of them also says that the Azerbaijani army is standing behind them.

"Sometimes these Azeris don’t feed us, many of our guys have been maimed, these [expletive deleted] don’t send them back and dump them to die so that they wouldn’t pay them," one of the mercenaries says. "Listen, we also haven’t been paid at all. They want us to take pictures of dead Armenians in order to pay us," the other replies. The dead bodies of the mercenaries are shipped to Turkey, he said.

"Are we near 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 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. They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
now?" the disoriented mercenary asks at one point.

One of these mercenaries says he was "astonished" to learn that the Azerbaijani military snipers have rubbed out their own troops who attempted to surrender.

"Honest to God, we have all [expletive deleted] regretted coming here," he says, mentioning that the Azeri troops are "drunk all day."

Fifth Column
Man Who Fired First Shots Behind Kyle Rittenhouse in Kenosha Has Been Charged
[GatewayPundit] The man who fired the first shots from behind Kyle Rittenhouse during the fatal incident in Kenosha has been charged.

Joshua Ziminski, 35, has been charged with disorderly conduct and use of a dangerous weapon for firing his weapon during the incident on August 25.

The police go on to report that when speaking to Ziminski, and his wife who was present at the time, both admitted that he had fired off a "warning shot" into the air.

This strengthens the case that Rittenhouse had reason to fear for his life and was acting in self defense when he shot and killed two rioters.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
IDF Special Forces carry out covert operation, destroy two Syrian outposts
[Jpost] The operation was carried out following Syrian's continued violation of the disengagement agreement between Israel and Syria from 1974.

In a secret operation that took place last week and was made known to the public on Tuesday, IDF special forces crossed the border into the demilitarized zone between Israel and Syria and destroyed two outposts belonging to the Syrian army, N12 reported.

The operation was carried out following Syria's continued violation of the disengagement agreement between Israel and Syria from 1974 that determines that a designated buffer zone between the borders would only be occupied by a special UN force called the Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF.)

Recently, however, the Syrian military returned to the buffer zone in the Golan Heights and spread its forces across the border, leading the IDF to take action and launch an unusual operation.

The operation included combat soldiers from the Nachal Brigade and commando soldiers from Yahalom - a special unit that specializes in combat engineering - crossing the border and destroying two Syrian outposts without being detected.

"You're facing the enemy, you're about 500 meters away," Cap. Michael Zilberg from the Nachal Brigade told N12. "A mission like this requires you to be very focused, he added.

A team commander from Yahalom described the operation and said it included "making our way in a silent and covert manner to the targets, placing a system of explosives on both outposts and blowing them up simultaneously."
