Coast Guard seizes $500M worth of cocaine
[NYPOST] U.S. authorities seized about 18.5 tons of cocaine with a street value of $500 million in the eastern Pacific Ocean, the U.S. Coast Guard said on Friday.

The cocaine was taken off the Coast Guard cutter James in the Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday after it was confiscated from 15 drug smuggling vessels in the international waters, the Coast Guard said.

Multiple U.S. Coast Guard cutters helped seize the drugs of Mexico, Central and South America, it said.

Some 49 suspects were also tossed in the slammer
Drop the rosco, Muggsy, or you're one with the ages!
and will be prosecuted in southern Florida, the Miami Herald reported.

Cocaine remains one of the most popular illegal drugs in the United States, where most of the world’s cocaine is consumed, according to federal officials.

"There are troubling early signs that cocaine use and availability is on the rise in the United States for the first time in nearly a decade," the U.S. State Department said in a global narcotics trade report in 2017.

Potential global cocaine output reached 1,410 tons in 2016, the highest level ever estimated, the United Nations
...an organization conceived in the belief that we're just one big happy world, with the sort of results you'd expect from such nonsense...
said in a report on drugs and crime in 2018.

Houthi militias storm houses belonging to a member of Yemen negotiating team
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The Yemeni government has accused the Houthis of having ties to the Iranian government, which wouldn't suprise most of us. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews ...
coup militias in Sanaa stormed on Saturday, the houses of Othman Mujali, the Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation in the Yemeni legitimate government.

Mujali who is also a member of the negotiating delegation in all rounds of consultations held since the start of the Yemeni war, told Al Arabiya English that: "The armed elements of the Houthi militias stormed on Saturday his houses in Sanaa and broke and looted their contents."

The minister said the raid is a clear message from the militias- as a member of the government’s negotiating delegation- that the pro-Iranian militias pay no attention to peace endeavors and political solutions.

In addition, Mujali linked the continuous defeats of the Houthi militias on various military fronts, with the hysteria they are experiencing, and is expressed by the arrests against the population in Hodeidah port city and by the storming of its opponents’ houses in Sanaa, and the attacks on property and economic facilities.

On Friday night, the Houthi militias targeted a number of facilities in Yemen's Hodeidah.

In a major breakthrough and during a special session on Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of. Except for a tiny handfull of Jews everthing there is very Islamic...
at the United Nations
...where theory meets practice and practice loses...
Security Council, Martin Griffiths, the UN Special envoy said that the Yemeni legitimate government and the Houthis have shown a "renewed commitment" to work on a political solution and have given "firm assurances" that they will attend the Sweden talks.

militias on Marib.

Eyewitnesses said that the sound of violent kabooms shook some neighborhoods of the city as defense forces intercepted the missiles launched by the Houthi coup militias targeting residential neighborhoods in the city of Marib.

The coalition's air defenses last week intercepted two ballistic missiles fired by the militias toward the coalition headquarters in the same province.

Peshmerga abducted in Kirkuk has been freed: local official
[Rudaw] A Peshmerga seized by unknown persons earlier this month in Kirkuk province has been sprung, a local official confirmed.

"Farhan Mohammed, a Peshmerga, was kidnapped by some armed persons on November 2 in the village of Taqtaq, near Dubiz town. He was freed on November 16," Jasim Abdul-Rahman, head of Dubiz Council told Rudaw.

The council head did not yet have further details.

Mohammed, previously reported as named Sarhan Mohammed, was kidnapped along with a civilian, Fahmi Salih, by uniformed gunnies who attacked Taqtaq village.

Salih’s body was found the next day.

Disputes between Kurds and Arabs in Kirkuk have swelled over the past year, since the Peshmerga left and Iraqi forces took control of the disputed province. Kurds have accused the acting Arab governor of resuming the policy of Arabization and failing to control militia groups of the Hashd al-Shaabi.

ISIS has also taken advantage of security gaps between the Peshmerga and Iraqi forces in the area. Militants carry out frequent attacks on villages, especially at night.

PKK armed wing vows revenge for 3 killed by Turkish airstrike
[Rudaw] The armed wing of the PKK accused The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the decaying remnant of the Ottoman Empire....
of deliberately trying to frighten the people after three villagers were killed in a Ottoman Turkish Arclight airstrike on Wednesday night.

Turkey has suffered many casualties from recent PKK activity, "therefore they conducted heavy airstrikes against civilians’ houses," the People’s Defense Forces (HPG) said in a statement on Friday.

Turkey "expresses its enmity against the Kurdish nation in this way and wants to take Dire Revenge on our people," the HPG added.

Ramazan Ahmed, Dilovan Salih, and Ismael Hassan were killed Wednesday night when they were out checking their beehives in the Amedi area of Duhok province.

Turkey frequently carries out cross-border airstrikes against alleged PKK positions in the Kurdistan Region. Locals, however, say this was the first time the area where the three were killed was targeted. They describe the region as a touristy place, popular with hikers.

The HPG said their forces were not in the area recently.

The PKK has actually decreased its activities in Duhok province since the US put multi-million dollar bounties on the heads of three the group’s leaders, according to a local official.

The HPG has vowed it will retaliate.

Relatives of the three victims have called for the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) to work with Turkey to end the airstrikes.

The KRG has not yet publicly commented on the incident.

Southeast Asia
Five Filipino Troops Killed in Ambush by Islamist Gunmen
[AnNahar] Militants have killed five Filipino soldiers and maimed 23 others in a major ambush by members of a notorious Islamist kidnap-for-ransom group, the Philippine military said Saturday.

The soldiers were searching for hostages taken by the Abu Sayyaf
...also known as al-Harakat al-Islamiyya, an Islamist terror group based in Jolo, Basilan and Zamboanga. Since its inception in the early 1990s, the group has carried out bombings, kidnappings, murders, head choppings, and extortion in their uniquely Islamic attempt to set up an independent Moslem province in the Philippines. Abu Sayyaf forces probably number less than 300 cadres. The group is closely allied with remnants of Indonesia's Jemaah Islamiya and has loose ties with MILF and MNLF who sometimes provide cannon fodder...
group when the button men attacked them on the southern Philippine island of Jolo on Friday, regional military front man Lieutenant Colonel Gerry Besana told news hounds.

"The effort is part of our mission to rescue the remaining hostages," Besana said.

The Abu Sayyaf is a loose alliance of several hundred armed gunnies formed in the 1990s with seed money from the late Osama bin Laden
... who is now neither a strong horse nor a weak horse, but a dead horse...
's al-Qaeda network.

Friday's clash was one of the deadliest since an Abu Sayyaf faction joined other foreign and Filipino gunnies in seizing the southern Philippine city of Marawi last year, leading to a five-month battle that claimed more than 1,100 lives.

The Abu Sayyaf is now believed to hold "less than 10" hostages, Besana said.

The group is based in the strife-torn southern islands but its members began in 2016 to kidnap sailors in the waters between Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

The gunnies have also raided and taken hostages from resorts in the southern Philippines and neighbouring Malaysia.

Most of the hostages have been ransomed off for huge amounts of money and several had their heads chopped off, including two Canadian tourists in 2016. A Dutch birdwatcher kidnapped on a nearby island in 2012 is believed to be among those still in Abu Sayyaf's hands.

The Dutchman's Swiss colleague escaped in 2014 after grabbing a kidnapper's machete and killing him.

The soldiers who survived Friday's ambush did not see any hostages during the 90-minute clash near the town of Patikul, Besana said.

Leb Shepherd Escapes Israeli Kidnap Attempt in Eastern Shebaa
[AnNahar] Israeli forces have tried on Saturday to kidnap a shepherd from the neighborhood of ​​Jabal al-Sadana in the Shebaa town who managed to escape the attempt, LBCI TV station said on Twitter.

The patrol confiscated 50 lovers goats belonging to the shepherd.
Nice harem
The Lebanese army began contacts with UNIFIL to find out what had happened and if there was a breach of the withdrawal line, said LBCI.
We see these stories occasionally, and they never make sense. What on earth would the IDF do with a lonely, well-armed herdsman (it never seems to be a goat-girl or shepherdess) never mind an active and unhappy herd of ruminents?

Islamic State loses holdout in south Syria, faces deadly air raids in east

43 civilians killed by anti-ISIS coalition strikes in east Syria
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Air strikes by the US-led coalition Saturday killed 43 people, mostly civilians, in a holdout of the ISIS holy warrior group in eastern Syria, a Britannia-based monitor said.

Seventeen children were among 36 ISIS family members
...the technical term for whom is human shields...
killed in Abu Husn village of Deir Ezzor province near the Iraqi border, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Another seven victims had not yet been identified as either civilians or ISIS fighters, it said.

The US-led coalition has been backing a Kurdish-Arab alliance called the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighting to expel the holy warrior from the pocket around Abu Husn.

"It’s the highest corpse count in coalition air strikes since the SDF launched its attack against the ISIS pocket" in September, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

The coalition has repeatedly said it does its utmost to prevent civilian casualties.

"The avoidance of civilian casualties is our highest priority when conducting strikes against legitimate military targets with precision munitions," front man Sean Ryan told AFP this week.

ISIS overran large swathes of Syria and neighboring Iraq in 2014, proclaiming a "caliphate" in land it controlled.

But the holy warrior group has since lost most of it to various offensives in both countries.

In Syria, the group has seen its presence reduced to parts of the vast Badia desert and the pocket in Deir Ezzor.

The coalition has since 2014 acknowledged direct responsibility for over 1,100 civilian deaths in Syria and Iraq, but rights groups put the number killed much higher.

In another military development, Russia has threatened the Syrian opposition forces after they failed to meet a deadline set up by Russian and Ottoman Turkish troops to enforce a new demilitarized zone in the city of Idlib.

Regime forces seize ISIS holdout in Southern Syria, says monitor
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Syrian regime forces Saturday took back control of ISIS Lion of Islam group’s last holdout in southern Syria after months of fighting, a war monitor said.

Regime forces retook Tulul al-Safa, between the provinces of Damascus and Sweida, "after ISIS fighters withdrew from it and headed east into the Badia desert", the Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Regime forces have been fighting the Death Eaters in the area since a deadly July attack on the Druze minority in Sweida province.

In recent weeks, air strikes on the Tulul al-Safa pocket had increased and hundreds of regime fighters were sent as reinforcements, the Observatory said.

The Lion of Islams’ withdrawal was likely "under a deal with the regime forces" after weeks of encirclement and air raids, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.

State news agency SANA reported regime forces had made "a great advance in Tulul al-Safa" and said they were combing the area for any remaining Lion of Islams.
