Kandahar Residents Harassed by Armed Men
[ToloNews] Residents in the southern province of Kandahar expressed frustration, saying that some armed individuals claiming to be members of the Islamic Emirate forces are disturbing the people.

They called on officials to hold the perpetrators accountable.

"We praise their good actions and criticize their bad actions. We- the people- have the right to make peaceful criticism. Those among the forces of the Islamic Emirate who oppress the public should be punished. They should bring strict reform to their forces," said Sayed Ahmad Zahid, a resident.

"The people who are affiliated with the Islamic Emirate forces and misuse their authority should be kicked out," said Mohammad Amin, a resident.

The reforming commission of the Islamic Emirate said that those who conduct courts for desertion and oppress the people would be punished.

"The reform commission was established to prevent those who bother our people. We are given the authority by the leadership to dismiss those Islamic Emirate forces, who violate the policy of the Islamic Emirate and who disturb the people," said Mufti Latifullah Hakimi, head of the commission.

Over 650 members of the Islamic Emirate forces have been dismissed on charges of various crimes, according to the commission.

Sudan’s military agrees to reinstate ousted prime minister, teen shot dead in Sunday protests
[Garowe] Military and government officials say a deal has been reached between Sudan’s military and civilian leaders to reinstate Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok.

The officials also said Sunday that government officials and politicians arrested since the Oct. 25 coup will be released as part of the deal between the military and political parties, including the largest Umma Party.

Hamdok will lead an independent technocratic Cabinet, the officials said. They said the U.N., the U.S., and others played "crucial roles" in crafting the deal.

The coup, more than two years after a popular uprising forced the removal of longtime autocrat Omar al-Bashir
...Former President-for-Life of Sudan He came to power in 1989 when he, as a brigadier in the Sudanese army, led a group of officers in a bloodless military coup that ousted the government of Prime Minister Sadiq al-Mahdi and eventually appointed himself head cheese. He fell out with his Islamic mentor, Hasan al-Turabi, tried to impose shariah on the Christian and animist south, resulting in its secessesion, and attempted to Arabize Darfur by unleashing the barbaric Janjaweed on it. Sudan's potential prosperity has been pissed away in warfare that has left as many as 400,000 people dead and 2.5 million displaced. Hee was overthrown by popular consent in 2019. Omar has been indicted for genocide by the International Criminal Court but nothing is expected to come of it...
and his Islamist government, has drawn international criticism. The United States, its allies, and the United Nations
...a lucrative dumping ground for the relatives of dictators and party hacks...
have condemned the use of excessive force against protesters.

Sudanese have been taking to the streets in masses since last month’s military takeover, which upended the country’s fragile transition to democracy. The agreement comes just days after doctors said at least 15 people were killed by live fire during anti-coup demonstrations.

The military has tightened its grip on power, appointing a new, military-run Sovereign Council. The council is chaired by coup leader Gen. Abdel-Fattah Burhan.

The Sovereign Council will meet later Sunday before announcing the deal, the officials said.

A national initiative formed after the coup that includes political parties and public figures said in a statement that Hamdok would be reinstated and will form a technocratic Cabinet. It said the deal would be signed later Sunday along with a political declaration. It did not elaborate.

Mohmmed Youssef al-Mustafa, a front man for the Sudanese Professionals’ Association, said there is a deal but the SPA would comment when it is announced officially.

The group called on people to take to the streets Sunday to reiterate their demands for civilian democratic rule and denounce any partnership with the military.

Sudan teen shot dead in Khartoum anti-coup protests

[IsraelTimes] A 16-year-old boy was shot in the head and fatally maimed in the Sudanese capital today in a crackdown by security forces on anti-coup protests, medics say.

The death raises to 41 the number of people killed since the October 25 coup, and it comes hours after Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok was reinstated, in a breakthrough deal to reverse the military takeover.

Somalia: Al-Shabaab says it killed radio director for revenge
[Garowe] An al-Shabaab
...... an Islamic infestation centering on Somalia attempting to metastasize into Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and similar places, all of which have enough problems without them...
jacket wallah in the Somali capital killed himself and a well-known Somali journalist on Saturday, al-Shabaab and the journalist's family told Rooters.

Abdiaziz Mohamud Guled, commonly known as Abdiaziz Afrika, worked with the government-owned Radio Mogadishu and covered al-Shabaab extensively.
Lead wacky DJ on the Shabelle Morning Zoo
"My cousin Abdiaziz was killed by a suicide bomber immediately after he went out to a restaurant... he died as he was rushed to hospital," his cousin Abdullahi Nur told Rooters.

"He always shone a big light on al-Shabaab, may God rest his soul," Nur said.

Al-Shabaab confirmed it was behind the attack. The group, which wants to overthrow the government and impose its own strict interpretation of Islamic law, frequently carries out bombings.

"The mujahideen had been hunting Abdiaziz for a long time. He committed crimes against Islam, he was involved in the killing of Mujahideens," Abdiasis Abu Musab, al-Shabaab military operation spokesperson, told Rooters by phone.

Four people were maimed in the attack, which took place near a busy restaurant, witnesses told Rooters.

One of the injured was a director at the Somali National Television, the station said in a tweet.

Government and police spokespeople did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

75 migrants drown in Mediterranean off Libya: IOM
[AlAhram] The United Nations
...a formerly good idea gone bad...
' migration agency said 75 migrants colonists drowned in the Mediterranean Sea north of Libya earlier this week as they attempted to reach Italia by boat.

The International Organization for Migration reported the latest tragedy in a tweet on Saturday, attributing the information to 15 survivors who were rescued by fishermen and brought to the port of Zuwara in northwestern Libya. It did not immediately provide further information.

Also on Saturday, the Italian Coast Guard rescued more than 420 migrants colonists, including dozens of minors, from boats in difficulty in the Mediterranean Sea,

A coasties statement said 70 people were brought safely by one of its motorboats to the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa, south of Sicily.

Meanwhile,
...back at the Hubba Hubba Club, Nunzio wondered: Where the hell was Chumbaloni? And where was his $600?...
a different coasties vessel was headed to the port of Porto Empedocle on Saturday evening in Sicily with more than 350 migrants colonists aboard after they were plucked to safety from a foundering fishing boat 70 miles (115 kilometers) from the Sicilian coast, the statement said. Among them were more than 40 minors.

That fishing boat ``was in danger, due to the bad weather conditions at sea and due to the elevated number of persons on board,`` the Coast Guard said. After being rescued by two motorboats, they were transferred to a larger Coast Guard vessel.

The statement described the rescue of the larger number of migrants colonists as ``complex.`` Four cargo ships in the area were pressed into service to ``mitigate the impact of the wind'' on the rescue operation, it said, allowing the migrants colonists to be safely rescued.

Each year, thousands of migrants colonists and refugees from Africa, the Middle East and South Asia attempt the deadly Mediterranean sea crossing to Europa
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
on overcrowded and often unseaworthy boats.

More than 1,300 men, women and kiddies have died so far in 2021 trying to cross the Central Mediterranean from Libya and Tunisia to Italia and Malta according to IOM.

Europe
Croatia police say German reporter helped migrants cross
[AlAhram] Croatian police say that a German news hound was briefly detained and fined for illegally entering the country from Bosnia with a group of migrants colonists.

Police said in a statement late Saturday that a court has ordered the 44-year-old German citizen to pay a fine of about 500 euros ($565). The man and seven migrants colonists were caught Saturday in Cetingrad, near Bosnia's border, the statement said.

No other details about the German citizen were immediately known. Croatian police said he told them he was a news hound.

The man was fined for illegal entry but the court dropped police charges accusing him of helping the migrants colonists cross as well, according to the statement. Police will appeal the ruling, they said.

Thousands of migrants colonists remain stuck in Bosnia and other Balkan countries while looking for ways to reach Western Europe. Moslem colonists Migrants in Bosnia seek ways to reach European Union
...the successor to the Holy Roman Empire, only without the Hapsburgs and the nifty uniforms and the dancing...
neighboring country Croatia before moving on.

Croatia has faced multiple accusations of pushbacks and violence against migrants colonists. Officials have denied systematic abuse, saying police have to protect the border from illegal entry.

The group of migrants colonists caught along with the German citizen included three minors. They have asked to be granted asylum in Croatia, police said.

'Multiple people dead' and 23 injured - including 12 children - after red Ford SUV plows into Wisconsin Christmas parade sending 'bodies flying everywhere': Person of Interest in custody
[Daily Mail] 24 hour rule?
Definitely. Possibilities include that the driver was crazy, a jihadi, Antifa/BLM, narco gangster... This follows Snowy Thing’s preliminary post yesterday evening.
  • Video shows the moment dozens of people were rammed into by a red Ford SUV in suburban Milwaukee

  • Incident comes just two days after Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder in case that captivated nation

  • One died and at least 23 were reportedly injured after red SUV sped through and plowed into holiday parade

  • Head of fire department said that 11 adults and 12 children were rushed to six different hospitals in the area

  • Incident took place on Sunday evening in Waukesha, which lies about 20 miles west of downtown Milwaukee

  • Police said reports the driver also fired gunshots were false; Cops tried to shoot driver during rampage

  • Kaylee Staral, an eyewitness, told CNN SUV plowed into the paradegoers 20 minutes after festivities began

  • Police said they have recovered the suspect's vehicle and a person of interest is now in custody; police do not believe the driver was armed

  • The SUV rammed into a crowd of people at 4:39pm local time - 39 minutes after the start of the parade
According to Fox6 Mileaukee last night, courtesy of Bubba Lover of the Faeries8843:
As the SUV broke through barricades, a Waukesha police officer fired his gun in an attempt to stop the vehicle, Thompson said. No bystanders were injured and Thompson said he did not know if the driver was struck by the officer's bullets.

Definitely a Wakandan
Update at 6:30 a.m. ET: Omomolet Phutch9064 also submitted the 4chan Wakandan thread (language and racism warning, because 4chan), commenting:
A good roundup of the data about Darrell Edward Brooks Jr., the BLM terrorist who drove his murder weapon through a children's marching band. Includes his arrest record, the fact he was just released on bail for felony bail jumping two days ago, image of the murder weapon, evidence he's a wife beater, a link to police scanner audio, and *gulp* footage of the attack. The footage is in an expando (No.348854754) so you won't see it just scrolling down. It is there, though.

He's been in trouble since he was seventeen. Prosecutors went easy on him. This selfish BLM piece of shit just ruined Christmas for so many little kids today. Fuck him. Fuck his whole movement. Everyone knew it would end up in a tragedy like this, with the media telling everyone that Rittenhouse shot black men in self defense.


Courtesy of Skidmark, Zero Hedge has more videos of the attack.

At this time, we can confirm that 5 people are deceased and over 40 are injured. However, these numbers may change as we collect additional information. Many people have self-transported to area hospitals. The Police Department has the person of interest in custody.

#15  Once again, legacy media lackeys sit on a breaking story.

It's dreadlocked sometime rapper Darrell E Brooks of Milwaukee. Care to guess his motive and background?

Try this: Anti-Trump anti-police career criminal. Out on cash bail thanks to Milwaukee's Soros commie DA.

The alleged Waukesha car attack suspect Darrell E. Brooks currently has two open criminal cases against him.
He posted bond for two felonies and three misdemeanors two days ago. He also posted bond for three felonies last March. pic.twitter.com/PkZsSZDein

#16  How much longer will we tolerate these attacks upon us?

This is simply a reign of terror, yes. aided and abetted by a cabal comprising the anti-Trump forces that threw the election and put in place a series of communist DAs across over a dozen major cities and installed corrupt leaders at the FBI and DOJ.

No jokes now about ferrets.

This is open war upon us. They're literally killing grandmas en masse, cutting them down at Christmas celebrations. Cheered on by an illegitimate puppet president and an entire vicious bloodthirsty establishment.

How much longer will we tolerate this?

#17  If his handlers don't wake up Biden from his stupor and get this asshole to address the nation before sunrise, we will know which side he's on in this war.

If he once again tries to blame us, or the Rittenhouse jurors, or anyone or anything related to BadWhite America, then Sumter will have arrived.

This phony war cannot continue. We need to settle the matter.

Have it out. One side or the other. To paraphrase A. Lincoln, this nation can no longer endure half-Woke and half-free.

One has to wonder what Social Media Postings are now being quickly cleaned up.

How much of his history being polished and/or rewritten as needed.

What names will MSM protect, that may have supported his Leftest affiliations?

Either way the question I have:
Is this the opening salvo by the Radical Left, the Attack on Family and the Holidays?


May the person that did this, experience things that even Stephen King hasn't come up with yet.

#19  Sorry for repeated posts but this is Jefferson's "Firebell in the Night."

We can deny this, appeal for unity, join hands and light candles etc all we like, but we cannot deny the simple fact any longer: these attacks represent a campaign of official state terror.

Darrell E. Brooks Jr. is yet another in a long line of violent felons unleashed upon normal, peaceful citizens by a communist Dustrict Attorney who came to power the same way Biden and his sick crew did, thanks to the crucial aid and money of our corrupt Woke oligarchs.

So long as we sit back and allow this shit to continue unopposed, we and our families -- our grandparents, our daughters and sons, our entire families and those of our neighbors as well -- our physical safety will be at risk if we are anywhere within a short drive of one of these communist DAs.

What will we do about this? How long before an army of Kyle's springs up and takes as against this plague of terror directed at our nation?

#20  sorry can't type, it's late... corrections of typos above:
* an Army of [multiple] Kyles (not owned by Kyle/"Kyle's")
* take up arms against

The q of q's is how much longer we will allow this open war upon us. The ballot box will not protect us. The violence will escalate.

There are literally 100,000 or more of these violent maniacs roaming across our major cities -- and beyond, as Waukesha shows -- and they are now being egged on by Biden.

He said explicitly that he was angry and concerned about the fact that a mob of violent berserkers -- including a quarter of violent felons, each one either off his meds or jumping bail or recently released -- that his party's paramilitary wing was stomped by a patriotic teenager acting entirely in his own self-defense.

Biden's statement was beyond vile and disgusting.

It was horrifying. He is greenlighting terror. For Biden to say what he did is the equivalent of British PM Margaret Thatcher signaling support for Bobby Sands or other IRA Provos after their wave of terror attacks on the British mainland.

#21  So can we now expect normal Americans to be told by our Woke meat puppet and his Stasi kommissars that we're to have no more holiday parades?

Note that plowing through a holiday parade in an SUV is the kind of copycat terror act that's horrifyingly easy to replicate.

A car is a weapon of mass destruction possessed legally and used round the clock by our country's vast population of violent, out-of-control felons.

The Rosenbaums and Hubers, the Grosskreutzes and JumpKick-men and Darrel E. Brooks Jrs. of this nation number into the hundreds of thousands. Portland alone has arrested and released over a THOUSAND active terrorist-rioters in the past year and a half.

These berserkers represent a potential sleeper-force for the Democrats' provisional armed wing that can and likely will be used to escalate what for now has been limited to sporadic festivities in the Soros-DA shitholes.

Biden and his Stasi have labeled normal Americans "terrorists." They have a strike force ready and waiting, one that operates with impunity wherever Soros DAs misrule. What is to stop them from unleashing a reign of terror on us?

#29  They all, however, called what he was driving a 'SUV' (as in 'Evil Greenhouse Gas Emission Champion®'). It was an older Ford Escape, you know the little vehicle type that tried to look like its larger sibling the Explorer, which in turn tried to look like the Expedition.

It's not a big vehicle and probably weighs about the same as a Toyota Camry.

#31  "some people are deceased"
we have "someone in custody"
reports are that he was "fleeing"

minimization abounds...by the local Chief of Police

Reports are that he was released on bond on a bail jumping charge... is this on the courts or on the PD? Was he an informant? Is that why he was out on bond on a bail jumping charge?

And several of his social media posts now uncovered are of the radical BLM variety.

Heavy has a photo from a witness of what appears to be this guy from the side profile as he drives thru the crowd. The photo shows intent in his face.

This dude has hate in his heart.

#33  Brooks is a career criminal with multiple priors and was released from jail two days prior to the incident after posting a $1,000 bail for three misdemeanors and two felonies. He has a history of resisting arrest, obstruction, battery, statutory sexual seduction, strangulation and suffocation, property destruction, illegal firearm possession, bail jumping, domestic violence, drug related charges and is a registered sex offender.

#34  Also: According to Sam Kraemer of Fox 6, one man told him that "...most of his family are in the hospital." He and his wife were able to walk away. Kraemer wrote on Twitter that "...a woman who lives on Main Street says she saw the SUV barrel through a dance team of girls between 9 and 15 years old. She says the immediate reaction was silence, followed by screaming, running, checking on those injured."

Apparently, along with the usual obscene bilge, Brooks spews hatred of the police and of Trump.

JoJo Rosenbaum - violent berserk serial anaI r@pist of boys aged 9 to 11 and would-be arsonist intending to push a flaming dumpster toward a filling station's gas tanks

Anthony Huber - violent felon who attacked his family and threatened his brother with a carving knife held against his brother's neck, telling him "I'll gut you like a pig"

Gaige Grosskreutz - serial felon and organizer of "People's Revolution" who threatened to beat up his grandmother

Darrell E. Brooks Jr. - violent felon, chiId $ex trafficker and mass-murdering terrorist

How much more of this will we tolerate?

The ballot box is useless at this point. The system is NOT working. There are literally thousands more of these monsters roaming our streets.

Their war on us will continue, and likely escalate now that we have a president and an entire justice establishment that's dedicated to standing up for these monsters.

#44  Lapdog media still, over 15 hours later, after half the country has known the mass-murdering terrorist's identity and motives for at least 5 hours, still refusing to describe or name him. Authorities "continued to investigate why the driver of a red S.U.V. barreled through a Christmas parade the day before..."

The NY Times demurely refers to him as "the driver."
They do the Mr Gun Violence charade as well, with multiple sentences in which the subject and peep is "the SUV."

And now this isn't even the NYT's top story anymore. Knocked off its perch by news of Jerome Powell's reappointment.

So many bad choices, where do you start?

Perp trades up from whatever he was driving away from to multiple counts of wreckless homicide and criminal endangerment.

#54  Use DuckDuckGo. This stuff was posted at a variety of sites last night after people scraped Darrell E Brooks Jr / "Mathboi Fly's" Facebook account before it was wiped.

In fairness to SteveS, it's true that the lines between mob and revolution, between your average sociopathic felon and a political actor, are not always clearly drawn.

The early Nazis included large numbers of lumpen-criminals. Josef Djugashvili was a bank robber before he became Stalin. Bernadette Dohrn, Bill Ayres and the other domestic terrorists also robbed banks.

But our current situation has the unprecedented factor of active assistance by left wing, criminal-friendly prosecutors.

When the State refuses to prosecute or releases such animals on cash bail, and when our national investigative agency refuses to infiltrate and roll up their networks while accusing moms and dads who oppose their agenda of "domestic terrorism" -- at that point we have to stop writing them off as mere "thugs."

More like shock troops.

So he was just fleeing police when he drove a car iinto a large, crowded downtown area full of masses of paradegoers, kids organized in marching bands, costumed dancers, food and drinks vendors?

As a prosecutor, I am committed to substantive reform that affirms procedural justice, proportional outcomes, and true public health and safety. In a paper released last month, MKE Co.'s chief public defender and I propose a paradigm for effective reform:https://t.co/DRYAHYrXmr

AKA, "if you take two of ours, then we take five of yours."

Or, "live by the AR-15, die by the red Ford SUV."

#67  The Detroit Free Press reports our terrorist has a fondness for running people over:

Darrell Brooks Jr., the man suspected of being the driver, has been charged three times in less than two years with recklessly endangering the safety of others, most recently on Nov. 5 as part of a domestic abuse incident for which he was also charged with resisting or obstructing an officer.

In the case this month, a woman told police Brooks purposefully ran her "over with his vehicle" while she was walking through a gas station parking lot after he had followed her there after a fight, according to the criminal complaint. The woman was hospitalized for her injuries, court records show.

#71  Even the Russians have tagged him as a domestic terrorist:

Via Colonel Cassad (Boris Rozhin):

Even before all this, 2 criminal cases had already been opened against Brooks and there were questions about his ability to comply with the law.
Brooks was prosecuted for resisting or obstructing a person's office, creating a 2nd degree security threat, hooliganism, drug possession, domestic violence, beatings, etc. Brooks is also accused https://meaww.com/darrell-brooks-sex-offender-viral-video-waukesha-suspect-sex-crimes-pedophile (not proven) of trafficking children for sexual exploitation (based on some dark deeds in Nevada, where he was featured as a "sex offender of the 2nd degree"). In general, there is no place to brand a character. Whether the attack is related to protests against Rittenhouse's acquittal remains to be seen.

His social media dug up calls for attacks on whites, support for ideas of black racial superiority and discussions on how to avoid responsibility for hitting people.

Of course, this fact will be used in the American internal political struggle, including by accusing the Democratic Party of cultivating internal "black terrorism" in spite of the Democrats' accusations against the Republicans of supporting "white terrorism."

#73  Heavy.com:
There was an incident relating to knives on the police scanner right before the parade incident. Two citizens told an officer there was a possible fight near the boat launch at nearby Frame Park with possible knives involved and you can hear a few officers responding with lights and sirens. Then an officer gets there and says there’s no one there after he checked the boat launch and the baseball field and rotary building. A minute later is when the first officer spots the SUV speeding toward the parade route. It’s not clear, though, whether this incident is related to what happened at the parade.

I was able to find an online recording of Waukesha police scanner traffic in the 10 minutes or so before the incident, and can confirm I heard traffic about allegations of a knife fight near a boat launch, followed by dispatching of more than one police car, about 5 minutes before the incident. Most of the recording was stretches of silence. I wish now I had downloaded that. It's amazing how fast things can be disappeared from the internet.

Despite over SEVEN YEARS of incendiary violence-exhorting tweets, rap songs, and at least a dozen arrests in multiple states for reckless endangerment, battery, strangulation and suffocation etc etc.

#80  BLUF: We don't know why he did it and any speculation at this time as to motive is speculation.

It is interesting to watch people get out over their skis on this.

That was more a comment on human behavior in general than this particular set of datapoints.

I see patterns. I see people jumping to conclusions based on limited information with lots of uncertainties. I see people reveling in the outrage.

I get the outrage and jumping to conclusions. Outrage is fun. You get a huge endorphin rush and you can jump up and down and hoot with the rest of the tribe. The monkey brain loves that stuff.

And jumping to conclusions is adaptive even if it is often wrong. It reduces the cognitive load on your brain and in terms of probability, it can be the best course of action. Is that a leopard in over in that bush? Better to freak out than be sorry/dead. Basic game theory.

We know a bunch of people got run over. The question is motive. Seems to me, amateur that I am, that what we have here is the fundamental intelligence problem: how do we make an intelligible picture from a bunch of dots?

Our choices at the moment are terrorism, misadventure, or thuggish assholery. For terrorism, domestic or otherwise, you need a political or religious motivation. Otherwise, every weekend in Chicago is Domestic Terrorism.

We know:
* He has a Hate Whitey social media profile common to rap stars, thugs, and racial grifters, I don't take that as particularly dispositive one way or another.
* Possibly fleeing from a crime in progress. A reasonable thing if you have open warrants. Fleeing does not make one a cautious driver.
* He is out on bail for running over his baby mama in a domestic beef along with a hefy rap that sheet suggets poor impulse control.
* the event was nearby in time and space to the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. Coincidence?

Bottom line: I don't see the whole picture and based on what we know, you probably don't either. A classic example of Two Movies Playing on the Same Screen.

My personal pet theory at the moment is thuggish assholery, but I am totally willing to update that given more evidence.

At least the perp didn't say "Aloha Snackbar" or his motivations would remain ever murky.

Rationale:
* Perp is not a white guy so the "white supremacy" angle is out.
* No strong BLM connection, so no "black man snaps from racial injustice"
* Given his rap sheet, the guy is a poster child for the currently popular under-incarceration fad. Out on bail for running over girlfriend, guy runs over more people. Sounds like a Bee headline.

I know it is cruel to jail people with violent tendencies and poor impulse control, but it does get them off the streets. So let's not talk about that. Look, squirrel!

India-Pakistan
Gunmen shoot dead three coal miners in southwestern Pakistan
[AlArabiya] Gunmen shot and killed three workers at a coal mine in southwestern Pakistain, officials said on Sunday. No one immediately grabbed credit for the attack.

Suhail Anwar Hashmi, the top administrator in Harnai district in Balochistan
...the Pak province bordering Kandahar and Uruzgun provinces in Afghanistan and Sistan Baluchistan in Iran. Its native Baloch propulation is being displaced by Pashtuns and Punjabis and they aren't happy about it...
province, said the early morning violence took place in the Sharag area where most of the province’s coal mines are located.

Haranai is located about 124 miles (200 kilometers) northeast of Quetta, the bustling provincial capital of Balochistan. Hashmi said counterterrorism and local police teams were searching for the assailants.

Baluch separatist groups have previously grabbed credit for similar attacks on coal miners in the region.

In January, button men kidnapped a group of workers from a coal mine in the district of Bolan and shot them dead in a nearby mountainous area.

Authorities found 11 bodies and three maimed at the site.

The gas- and mineral-rich Balochistan province has been the scene of a low-level insurgency for some two decades. Initially, Lions of Islam demanded a greater share for the local population of the province’s gas and mineral income. But later, Baluch separatist groups started pressing for independence from Pakistain.
They won’t get either, but it will keep the excess population of both sides too busy to create trouble elsewhere.

Turkey says over 800 PKK fighter 'neutralized' in Kurdistan in 7 months
[Shafaq News] The Ottoman Turkish military said it has "neutralized" 831 anti-Ankara fighters in cross-border operations in the Kurdistan Region since April.

According to the Ottoman Turkish Ministry of Defense, Ottoman Turkish soldiers have seized nearly 1,300 weapons and 316,000 ammunitions since Operations Pence-Simsek and Pence-Yildirim were launched in April.

Over 1,400 caves and shelters as well as 1,800 improvised bombs have been destroyed so far during the operations.

Ottoman Turkish authorities use the term "neutralized" to imply the fighters in question surrendered, or were killed, or captured.

The Ottoman Turkish ministry also released new footage of The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
's ongoing operations in Metina and Avasin-Basyan territories.

Turkey has carried out a series of offensives since 2019 against anti-Ankara groups in the Kurdistan Region, particularly the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). The latest operations are Pence-Simsek and Pence-Yildirim launched this April in the Metina and Avasin-Basyan regions. Earlier, Turkey launched Operations Pence-Kaplan and Pence-Kartal in June 2020.

Since 2016, Ankara has launched a trio of operations across its border in the Kurdistan Region: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).

In its over 35 year span, the conflict between Turkey and the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU — has resulted in the deaths of at least 40,000 people. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.

Two ISIS terrorists arrested in Baghdad, senior cop killed by anonymities, senior bureaucrat house attacked
[Shafaq News] The Baghdad Operations Command and al-Hashd al-Shaabi (PMF) announced arresting two ISIS murderous Moslems in Baghdad.

The Security Media Cell said in a statement that a force from the Baghdad operations command managed to arrest a suspect according to Article (4/1) of terrorism in northeastern Baghdad.

In the same context, a force from the Directorate of Security and Discipline in al-Hashd al-Shaabi managed to arrest an ISIS terrorist working within the so-called "Wilayat Iraq"-north of Baghdad axis.

The PMF media department explained that the arrest was carried out after obtaining official approvals from the concerned judge, and in cooperation with the forces in charge in Baghdad.

The terrorist had a high-level administrative position, and the legal measures were taken against him.

Man stabbed, moderately hurt in suspected Jaffa terror attack; Palestinian arrested
[IsraelTimes] 67-year-old stabbed in the back 5 times, taken to hospital in moderate condition; suspect also tried to stab victim’s wife; officials say assailant entered Israel illegally

A man was stabbed and moderately maimed in the central city of Jaffa on Sunday afternoon in what police said was potentially a terror attack.

Israel Police said an 18-year-old Paleostinian from the Jenin area in the West Bank was arrested as a suspect. Officials said he had illegally entered Israel.

Police said indications were increasing that the incident was a terror attack, although they did not rule out other motives.

Security officials had initially believed it was an attempted robbery.

The 67-year-old victim, who was not immediately named, was stabbed in the back at least five times.

He was taken to the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon by Magen David Adom medics.

A law enforcement official said the assailant also attempted to stab the victim’s wife before fleeing the scene.

The suspect was arrested near the scene of the stabbing, and was taken by officers for questioning.

Police said officers were continuing to search the area for possible accomplices.

If confirmed, it would be the second terror attack of the day, after a shooting attack in Jerusalem’s Old City killed a man and injured four.

organization (ISIS) in the southern desert of al-Bukamal, in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor, eastern Syria.

A military source of the Iranian-backed Liwa al-Quds in al-Bukamal, on the Syrian-Iraqi border, said a clash erupted between ISIS and Iranian-backed militias near Ma’izilah dam in the southern desert of al-Bukamal.

The clash resulted in the killing of four members, all of them Syrians, and the injury of two others.

The source, on condition of anonymity, added to North Press that the clash lasted for more than three hours, where ISIS had to withdraw after the arrival of reinforcements for the Iranian militias.

Since the eruption of the events in Syria in 2011, Iran
...They hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
has officially announced its support to the Syrian government and sent its militias to support government forces in their war against factions of the Syrian opposition.

Iran supported and formed military factions, which are working to fulfill Iran’s ambition in Syria, the most prominent of these factions are National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwa Fatemiyoun, Hashemiyoun and Liwa Zainebiyoun.

Iran continues the process of recruiting Syrian murderous Moslems within the ranks of factions affiliated with it through attracting them by offers, and extorting the deteriorating economic conditions that Syria is witnessing.

There are about 30 recruiting centers deploying in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor, west of the Euphrates River, most of them were houses belonging to residents that were seized by Iranian-backed factions under the pretext that their owners are residing in areas held by either Syrian Democratic Forces or opposition factions.

#1  "Deir al-Zor was the main entry point for Islamic State of Iraq into Syria, because of the governorate’s strategic location. IS managed to establish control over large swathes of territory. Subsequently, though, the group gradually lost sway over much of this territory, leaving Deir al-Zor as its last bastion of influence in Syria."

Government’s Fourth Division leaves Syria’s Daraa as stipulated by settlement process
[NPASYRIA] The Fourth Armored Division affiliated with the Syrian government forces withdrew its last members from Syria’s south governorate of Daraa yesterday.

The Fourth Division is led by Major General Maher al-Assad, Bashir al-Assad’s brother.

The withdrawal came to implement a Russian-brokered settlement agreement in early September.

The agreement stipulated a ceasefire following a 78-day siege imposed by government forces and Iranian-backed militias on the area.

"The settlement agreement was according to an international deal and one of its items stipulated to oust the Fourth Division from Daraa because it is loyal to Iran," Ibrahim al-Jabawi, a member of the Syrian Negotiation Body and a dissident officer stated to North Press.

"Russia is committed to fulfill all items of the agreement," al-Jabawi added.

Iranian-backed Division retreated the last members from the Irrigation foundation and Conserves plants buildings it had taken as posts in the outskirts of Mezayrib town, Daraa’s western countryside.

The posts emptied are likely to contain officers affiliated with the government military intelligence branch.

Only few members of the Division are left in the outskirts of Daraa al-Mahatta, which include some residential buildings overlooking Daraa city, according to eyewitnesses.

The Division had taken the outskirts as military points and offices to their leaders like the Colonel Ghzyath Dalla, leader of al-Ghayth Forces affiliated with the Fourth Division.

In mid-November, the Fourth Division evacuated its main military posts in the National Stadium in the city center and outskirts.

Unidentified button men, who were riding a cycle of violence, shot to death Ayman al-Ma’eidi, 24, who was a member of the SDF, near a military point in the town of Sweidan, 75 km east of Deir ez-Zor, an SDF source in the town said.

The source added quoting eyewitnesses that the button men used Kalashnikovs. They were masked and wearing traditional garb (the jalabiya) and fled towards the desert after carrying out the operation.

Recently, the countryside of Deir ez-Zor has been witnessing cases of kidnapping and liquidation of members of the SDF, employees of the Autonomous Administration, tribal dignitaries and civilians for unknown reasons. The Islamic State

Government, opposition exchange shelling in northwest Syria
[NPASYRIA] On Sunday, Ottoman Turkish-backed armed opposition factions shelled Syrian government forces’ positions in the countryside of Idlib and Aleppo, northwest Syria, while the government continued bombing the opposition factions’ sites in the area.

Al-Fateh al-Mubin Operations Room targeted the government forces’ positions near Kafr Battikh, Dadikh, al-Malaja, Kafruma, south and east of Idlib, and Urum al-Sughra, west of Aleppo, with heavy artillery and missiles, North Press reported opposition military sources.

The al-Fateh al-Mubin managed to snipe several members of the government forces near Dadikh and Saraqib, east of Idlib, and Miznaz, west of Aleppo, and it also managed to destroy a military bulldozer near Jobas, east of Idlib, the sources added.

However,
a poor excuse is better than no excuse at all...
North Press could not verify the information with other sources.

The government forces continued bombing the opposition factions’ sites in the villages and towns of al-Fateira, Kafr Oweid, Sfuhen, Kansafra and the outskirts of al-Bara in Zawiya Mountain, south of Idlib, the sources noted.

The mutual bombing coincided with intense flight of Russian drones over Idlib and the countryside of Hama, Aleppo and Latakia, northwest Syria, according to the sources.

For months, areas in Syria’s northwest have been witnessing mutual shelling between parties to the conflict in different areas amid news on government military reinforcements to different areas in the region.

Although the de-escalation zone in northwest Syria is subject to a Russian-Ottoman Turkish ceasefire agreement signed in March 2020, the area witnesses frequent mutual bombardment despite the entry of the ceasefire into force.

Lebanese Army Stops Boat Carrying 90 People Off Coast
[AnNahar] The Lebanese Army has stopped a boatload of 91 people including Syrian and Paleostinian refugees from departing Lebanon Hezbollahstan
...In 2020 Hezbollah blew up a considerable portion of Beirut and many of its inhabitants when its ammonium nitrate facility exploded. They blamed it on... somebody else. It wasn't them though. Trust them on that. And it ain't never coming to trial...
illegally.

Women and children were among the group intercepted by a navy patrol off the coast of Qalamoun in northern Lebanon, the army said.

It said the boat almost sank in bad weather and that all on board were rescued and taken to shore.

The statement did not specify their intended destination.

The Republic of Cyprus, a European Union
...the successor to the Holy Roman Empire, only without the Hapsburgs and the nifty uniforms and the dancing...
member just 160 kilometers away, is a common destination for would-be migrants colonists trying to flee Lebanon, which is mired in economic and political crisis.

On Friday the Lebanese internal security forces said they had thwarted an attempt by 82 people to illegally cross by sea from the Lebanon into Europe.

The Internal Security Forces said they raided a "tourist resort" in the Qalamoun area on Thursday after being tipped off.

They found "82 people, including men, women, and children, who were planning to head to Europa
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
via sea in an illegal manner for a fee of $5,000 per person," without specify their nationality.

The number of people attempting to make deadly sea crossings out of Lebanon has surged since the country's financial crisis began in 2019.

Most of the would-be migrants colonists are already refugees who fled the war in neighboring Syria, but an increasing number of Lebanese nationals are also attempting the perilous journey.

Around 80 percent of Lebanon's population is estimated to be living under the poverty line, as defined by international organizations, and the Lebanese pound has lost 90 percent of its value against the dollar on the black market.

Lebanon says it hosts more than 1.5 million Syrians, nearly a million of whom are registered as refugees with the U.N.

Official estimates put the number of Paleostinian refugees in the country at 180,000 but the actual number could be as high as 500,000.

Russian military patrolling the border of the US zone of control in Syria
Direct Translation via Google Translate. Edited.
[RIA Novosti] LATAKIA - The Russian military in Syria began patrolling the demarcation line between the territories controlled by the Russian Armed Forces and the international coalition led by the United States, said Viktor Kudinov, a spokesman for the Center for Reconciliation of Warring Parties (CPVS).

"This is the border dividing the territory controlled by the international anti-terrorist coalition, the East zone, and the West zone controlled by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. There have been no patrols by Russian troops in these territories," Kudinov said.

Kudinov noted that there may be sleeping cells of ISIS, as well as possible violations of Syrian laws.

The main task of patrolling this territory is to demonstrate the presence of the Russian Armed Forces, explained a representative of the CPVS. It is necessary to show the population that the Russian military is here and ready to provide assistance. In the future, under favorable conditions, humanitarian actions can be carried out here.

"The patrols were carried out as usual," Kudinov concluded.

The armed forces of the United States illegally control territory in the north and north-eastern Syria in the provinces of Deir ez-Zor, Al-Hasaka and Raqqa , where the largest deposits of oil and gas to Syria.

Official Damascus has repeatedly called the presence of the American military on its territory occupation and state piracy with the aim of outright theft of oil.

#1  Issued on: 09/02/2021 Washington (AFP) –
US forces in Syria are focused on fighting the remnants of the Islamic State group and are not guarding oil fields as previously ordered by ex-president Donald Trump, a US defense official said Monday. Since a US firm contracted last year with the Kurds in northern Syria to help exploit northeastern Syria oil reserves, US troops are not involved, said Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.
The 900 US military personnel and contractors in the region "are not authorized to provide assistance to any other private company, including its employees or agents, seeking to develop oil resources in Syria," said Kirby.

Blacklisted Iranian airline targeted in cyberattack
[IsraelTimes] Mahan Air claims it thwarted hack as its website displays error message; group claiming responsibility releases what it says are company documents detailing Quds Force ties

A blacklisted Iranian airline with ties to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps said Sunday that it was recently targeted in a cyberattack.

Mahan Air claimed to have thwarted the attack, which it said happens routinely.

"It has already been the target on several occasions due to its important position in the country’s aviation industry," Mahan Air said in a statement.

The airline said all flights were operating on schedule but that it would update passengers on any future changes.

Mahan Air’s website displayed an error message saying the site couldn’t be reached.

Many customers of Mahan Air across Iran
...The nation is 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...
received strange text messages on Sunday. A group calling itself Hoosyarane-Vatan, or Observants of Fatherland, claimed in the mass texts to have carried out the attack.

The group released what it said were internal company documents showing Mahan Air’s links to the Quds Force, the IRGC’s overseas branch.

"We believe the public deserves to know the truth behind this cooperation and the money wasted on IRGC activities abroad while Iranian people suffer at home," Hooshyarane-Vatan said in a statement on the Telegram messaging app.

It also asserted that even after Mahan detected the hackers on the airline’s computer network, "they never managed to drive us out of there, and our access to their network was never damaged."

On Hooshyarane-Vatan’s Twitter account the group repeatedly invoked Ahvaz, a majority-Arab region in southwestern Iran that has seen separatist violence.

"Until there is justice for the Ahwaz we will continue to expose the corruption of the regime," it said.

Mahan Air has been under US sanctions since 2011 for allegedly providing support to the Quds Force. The airline has been linked to alleged shipments of arms from Iran to Shiite groups in Syria, including the Hezbollah terror group. Alleged Israeli Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s in Syria have been thought to target Mahan Air weapons shipments in the past.

The airline’s announcement came amid a years-long cyberwar between Israel and Iran that has occasionally bubbled to the surface.

Last month, Iran accused Israel of being behind a cyberattack on the country’s gas stations, knocking them out of service for a week. Without naming a specific country, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi blamed the hack on anti-Iranian forces seeking to sow disorder and disruption.

Days later, an Iranian-linked hacking group, Black Shadow, targeted an Israeli hosting company, temporarily shutting down a number of websites and stealing user data from "Atraf," an Israeli LGBT dating site.

Black Shadow also stole a vast trove of information from Israeli insurance company Shirbit last year and then sold it on the dark web when the firm refused to pay a ransom.
