[Fox 5 SD] A person was shot and killed at an entrance to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego Friday, authorities said.
The gunfire was reported near the depot’s Washington Street entrance, off Pacific Highway, according to San Diego Police Department. One person was killed, base officials told police.
The attack happened on federal property and military law enforcement will be leading the investigation, an SDPD watch commander explained, so there weren’t further details immediately available. FOX 5 has reached out to a Marine Corps spokesperson for comment on what led up to the shooting.
Located just north of San Diego International Airport, the MCRD serves as a first training stop for enlisted recruits entering the U.S. Marine Corps on the West Coast.
The Washington Street entrance, Gate 5, is used for visitor traffic, according to MCRD’s website. That area was marked off with crime scene tape and a small SUV could be seen sitting with its doors open in one of the lanes. A tarp covered the body of the person who was shot a short distance away, under the gate’s awning, where there are security kiosks to check in visitors.
As the San Diego Union-Tribune’s Andrew Dyer reported Friday, the depot is celebrating its 100th anniversary as a Marine Corps base this year. A spokesperson told Dyer that a new exhibit is opening at a depot museum to mark the centennial, but that due to the coronavirus pandemic, public access is currently limited to recruit graduation days.
It wasn’t immediately clear if a public event was being held at the time of the shooting.
An updated version of this story adds:
A person suspected of being armed with a knife was shot and killed by base personnel at the main visitors’ entrance to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego Friday, MCRD officials said.
The incident happened around 11:50 a.m., when a vehicle attempted to board the base at the Gate 5 checkpoint, according to MCRD officials.
As base personnel issued verbal commands for the vehicle to stop, MCRD officials said the person exited their vehicle and approached the employees with a knife. Several warnings were given to the person, who MCRD officials said possessed “hostile intent,” and the person was shot by base personnel. Emergency services were called and the person was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:16 p.m., base officials confirmed.
[KhaamaPress] The Taliban ...Arabic for students... coppers have killed a young physician in the western Herat ...a venerable old Persian-speaking city in western Afghanistan, populated mostly by Tadjiks, which is why it's not as blood-soaked as areas controlled by Pashtuns... province of Afghanistan on Thursday, local sources confirmed.
Amruddin Noori, a 33-year-old physician in Herat city was killed by the Taliban security members after he did not stop at a police security checkpoint in Herat, the victim’s family members claimed while speaking to local media agencies.
Noori who used to have a small private medical clinic had newly got married, the source said.
The security authorities in Herat have rejected the killing of the victim by the Taliban members saying such an incident has not been recorded with them.
The recent reports indicate an increase in the crimes rate in Afghanistan, however, most of such incidents are not reported by the media due to lack of access to information.

[REGNUM] The government army of Ethiopia occupied the city of Kasagita in the Ethiopian state of Afar, which was controlled by militants of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Tigray (NPLT). This was reported on November 26 by the Fana TV channel with reference to the statement of the Prime Minister of the country Abiy Ahmed .
According to the head of government, the armed forces continue to attack the positions of the rebels in order to recapture the cities of Burka and Chifra from the NFOT.
As reported by IA REGNUM , on November 23, militants of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Tigray captured the city of Debre Sina (Ethiopian state of Amhara).
[BREITBART] Women searching for the remains of their loved ones announced the discovery of at least 20 bodies in a cartel killing field in northern Mexico. The activists are calling on Mexico City to help validate the identities of the victims. This group often receives threats from criminal organizations.
Known as the Madres Buscadoras de Sonora (Searching Mothers from Sonora), the group’s members have lost loved ones by cartels and are trying to find answers as to their fates. In many cases, the victims had no connection with organized crime but were taken by mistake, as part of ransoms, or for sex trafficking.
This week, the group announced on social media they searched in a rural area known as Miguel Aleman de Hermosillo in Sonora. During their search, the group found seven mass graves with five full bodies and the charred remains of several others. The group believes that more than 20 were buried at the site.
The initial post from that location indicated 13 bodies, however, the group now believes that more than 20 are in the area and possibly more graves can still be found.
During their search, the group posted a photograph of a set of car keys with a shoe-shaped key chain. The post invites people to send tips if anyone recognized it.
The organization is made up of volunteers and claims to not receive any type of government help. In a separate post, the group asked for donations of water, electrolytes, and sleeping bags.
Similar groups have since popped up in other parts of Mexico. Despite government statistics regarding the number of suspected forced disappearances, a true number is difficult to determine due to a concerted effort by officials at all levels to suppress crime statistics for political gain.

[KavkazUzel] A court in Rostov-on-Don found Artur Satemirov guilty of preparing a terrorist attack in the Astrakhan police department and participating in the activities of IS *. Satemirov told the Dagestani journalist Abdulmumin Hajiyev that he was forced to confess under torture.
The 34-year-old resident of the Astrakhan region Artur Satemirov was accused of preparing for a terrorist act (part 1 of Article 30 - part 1 of Article 205 of the Criminal Code of Russia), participation in the activities of a terrorist organization (part 2 of Article 205.5 of the Criminal Code of Russia) and illegal storage of weapons and ammunition (part 1 article 222 of the Criminal Code of Russia).
"It has been established that in April 2020, the defendant, being at his place of residence in Astrakhan, took the oath to the head of the international terrorist organization 'Islamic State,' having written down the text of the oath and sent this audio message for transmission to the head of the terrorist organization.
Satemirov planned to commit a terrorist act in the department police of the city of Astrakhan. For these purposes, until May 2020, he kept hand grenades and firearms at his place of residence," the press service of the Southern District Military Court told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
According to the press service, the arrest by law enforcement officers prevented Satemirov from fulfilling his plans.
The defendant was found guilty and sentenced to 13 years in a maximum security colony with the first four years in prison. He pleaded not guilty, the court said.
The verdict has not entered into legal force and can be appealed by the parties in the Military Court of Appeal.
"Caucasian Knot" has not yet received any comments from Artur Satemirov and his representatives regarding the court's decision.
On October 5, Satemirov's story was published on the Facebook page of the Chernovik correspondent Abdulmumin Hajiyev, who was arrested on charges of financing terrorism, and on October 6 it was included in the Caucasian Knot selection "Top 10 of the North Caucasian Blogosphere."
"I was taken to the FSB building, where I was slightly beaten, demanding to 'confess' that everything seized during the search was mine. I refused. Then I was brought to the ITT and put in solitary confinement. I was taken out of the cell in handcuffs, a white bag was put on my head and I was handed over to some persons.
I saw nothing. The handcuffs on my hands were attached to the radiator, my head was wrapped in cellophane and my ears were sealed with tape. There was no way to open my eyes. To the big toes. They attached two wires and began to torture me with electric current," Satemirov said.
The criminal case against Artur Satemirov came to court on December 17, 2020, hearings on the merits began in March, the process took 12 sessions, follows from the file on the website of the Southern District Military Court.
Earlier, the "Caucasian Knot" has repeatedly written about criminal cases under articles on terrorism, which the defense called fabricated.
Thus, four natives of Dagestan, accused of preparing a terrorist attack at a concert by Philip Kirkorov, insist that they made a confession under torture .
A resident of Chechnya, Abdul-Khalim Abdulmezhidov, who was convicted in 2018 for preparing a terrorist attack at the New Year's celebration in Shali, was unable to bring about a criminal case for extorting evidence under torture.
In Astrakhan, a local resident, Rasul Baysuev, was charged with a terrorism case. The only evidence of his guilt is the testimony of a witness, which he later refused, the lawyer said. Baysuev was sentenced to 12 years in prison, Court of Appeal in April upheld the verdict .
[DW] German jihadist Nils D. has been found guilty of torturing a man to death while serving as guard at an "Islamic 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.... " prison.
A Dusseldorf court has sentenced a German national to 10 years behind bars for murder on Friday. The man, named as Nils D.
...more fully Nils Donath, he joined ISIS in Syria in 2013, then was picked up by police immediately upon his return to Germany in 2015. They’ve been trying him for various kinds of bad behaviour ever since...
under German privacy laws, tortured a man to death at a prison run by the so-called "Islamic State" (IS) group in Manbij, Syria, in 2014.
PROSECUTORS CALLED FOR LIFE SENTENCE
The now-31-year-old was a member of the "Lohberg Brigade", a group of Islamist turbans from the Dinslaken-Lohberg region, north of Dusseldorf. Members of the group had traveled to Syria in order to join the "IS".
Nils D. was guarding one of the terror group's prisons in Manbij, a city located near Syria's border with The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor... . According to the court, he took part in punishing a prisoner which resulted in the man's death.
He had initially been charged with the torture and murder of three prisoners, but was acquitted on two of those cases.
Prosecutor sought a life sentence for murder in conjunction with war crimes and being part of a terror group. However, if you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning... the court took his into account the defendant's cooperation in solving other terror-related crimes.
Nils D. had already been sentenced to four and a half years for being an IS member in March 2016.
GERMAN NATIONALS GUILTY OF ATROCITIES
Hundreds of German nationals traveled to Syria to join the IS caliphate from 2014.
German prosecutors are working to hold German nationals accountable for crimes committed while the IS held sway in large parts of Syria and Iraq.
Last month, the Munich Higher Regional Court sentenced a German woman to 10 years imprisonment after hearing she stood idly by as a 5-year-old Yazidi "slave" girl was left to die of thirst in the sun.

[OneIndia] The National Investigation Agency has filed a chargesheet against a terrorist of the Babbar Khalsa International in connection with a conspiracy to carry out terror attacks.
The NIA charged Hardeep Singh Nijjar
...a plumber who lives comfortably in Canada’s British Columbia, far from the romantic danger endured by the revolutionaries he commands...
, a resident of Jalandhar Punjab. The case pertains to the conspiracy hatched by the accused and others to carry out acts of terror in India. He sed to send funds to India through various channels include hawala.
He was in the process of developing a network of sympathisers and cadres to undertake assassinations in Punjab. He was also trying to arrange arms and ammunition from his Pakistain based associates, the NIA said.
Nijjar is also associated with the Sikhs For Justice and has been trying to radicalise the Sikh community across the world. With an aim of creating a separate state of Khalistan
...Khalistan is the idea of an independent Sikh homeland in the Indian Punjab. The local troublemakers are financed by the Sikh diaspora — who love the idea of the folks they left behind murdering their neighbours before dying romantically for a hopeless idea — with training and additional funding from Pakistan’s ISI as yet another arrow in their quiver aimed at the Indian throat since the 1980s...
, he has been trying to get the Sikhs to go against India and carry out violent mostly peaceful acts. Nijjar who has been designated as a terrorist under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act also posted audio messages and videos on the social media to incite the Sikh community, the NIA said.

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....

[SHAFAQ] On Friday, the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), announced that the Ottoman Turkish army began withdrawing from some areas in Kurdistan Region.In a report, HPG, the military wing of PKK said that during the past six months, PKK fighters carried out 599 attacks against the Ottoman Turkish army and killed 670 soldiers, while the Ottoman Turkish army used chemical weapons ...have not been used since WWI except for in Iraq, by the late, unlamented Saddam Hussein and in Syria, but really, honest, not by the Syrian government. And in Germany in WWII, but that was against civilians. Lots of them, just one of many reasons Hitler's also late and unlamented except among devout Moslems... 232 times."
The report also indicated that 101 PKK fighters were killed in the confrontations in Afshin, Matina, and Zab, 32 other members were killed with Ottoman Turkish chemical weapons.
"the main reason behind the withdrawal of the Ottoman Turkish army is the intensive military operations launched by the PKK forces in the combat zones where the Party prevents the Ottoman Turkish army from achieving its goals." The report added.
The Ottoman Turkish military has regularly attacked PKK positions in the mountains of northern Iraq, where several thousand turbans are believed to be holed up.

[An Nahar] A small group of protesters broke into the Ministry of Social Affairs in Beirut early Friday and removed a photo of President Michel Aoun ...president of Leb, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hizbullah... from one of its main rooms, as the Lebanese pound hit new lows amid a worsening economic and political stalemate.The nearly dozen protesters who entered the ministry said conditions in the crisis-hit country have become unbearable as a result of the rapid economic collapse and ongoing crash of the pound, which reached 25,100 to the U.S. dollar. The previous record was 25,000.
Prices have been skyrocketing in recent weeks as the government lifted subsidies on fuel and some medicines, making them out of reach of many in Lebanon Hezbollahstan ...a strong argument in favor of European colonialism, even French colonialism... . Some three quarters of the population of six million, including a million Syrian refugees, now live in poverty. The minimum monthly wage is now worth about $27.
Protesters have blamed the ministry for sluggishness in issuing ration cards that are supposed to give poor families monthly financial aid.
The protesters broke into the meeting room at the ministry and turned a framed picture of Aoun upside down before removing it. They replaced it with a banner in Arabic that read "revolutionaries of October 17."
"Those who usurped public money cannot conduct reforms," shouted one of the protesters before leaving the building following police intervention. "We have hit rock bottom. Things cannot get worse."
Social Affairs Minister Hector Hajjar said he will visit Parliament Speaker Nabih Knobby Berri ...Speaker of the Lebanese parliament, head of the Amal Shiite party aligned with Hezbollah, a not very subtle sock puppet of the Medes and Persians... today, Friday, to demand an approval to start the registration for the ration card by the beginning of December.
The crisis has been made worse by the coronavirus (aka COVID19 or Chinese Plague) ...the twenty first century equivalent of bubonic plague, only instead of killing off a third of the population of Europe it kills 3.4 percent of those who notice they have it. It seems to be fond of the elderly, especially Iranian politicians and holy men... and the Aug. 4, 2020, port blast that killed 216, maimed more than 6,000 and destroyed part of the capital.
The Cabinet, formed in September after a 13-month vacuum, has not met in more than six weeks amid deep divisions between rival groups over the judge leading the investigation into the port explosion. Comments by a Cabinet minister that triggered a diplomatic row with oil-rich gulf nations has added to the acrimony.
In other parts of the country, protesters placed posters that read "the mafia that destroyed the Lebanese pound" outside some branches of local banks, state-run National News Agency said.
For the past two years, local lenders have imposed informal capital controls that prevent many people from accessing their savings.
