[KhaamaPress] The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said Tuesday, that the Afghan special forces have rescued a number of military and civilians held captive by the Taliban ...the Pashtun equivalent of men... in Pashtun-infested Logar province on Monday night.
MoD stated Army’s SF unit released seven military and 15 civilian prisoners from a Taliban prison in the Charkh district of Pashtun-infested Logar province.
During the operation, the Commando members discovered and confiscated weapons and heavy rounds of ammunition.
It should not be forgotten that commandos have already released a number of military and civilian prisoners from Taliban prisons in several provinces of the country.
Earlier, Afghan security officials say the commando forces have carried out an operation on a Taliban’s prison in Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand ...an Afghan province populated mostly by Pashtuns, adjacent to Injun country in Pak Balochistan... province.

[AnNahar] A 100 jihadists were killed this month in a joint Franco-Malian offensive in the West African country's lawless center, the Malian army said Tuesday.
They’re probably the Group to Support Islam and Moslems (GSIM), or in Arabic Jamaat Nusrat al-Islam wal-Moslemin (JNIM), the regional Al Qaeda in North Africa affiliate. Organizationally they report to Abdelmalik Droukdel’s group, which once upon a time was the Algerian jihadi group Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat. Whether they still do, since he was killed by the French last June, is an interesting question. The other possibility is that the deaders are AQ in North Africa, which also has bases in Mali, belatedly following Mr. Droukdel to Hell...
"A 100 forces of Evil were neutralized, about 20 captured and several cycle of violences and war equipment were seized" during the operation with La Belle France's Barkhane force, which aims to eradicate jihadists in the Sahel region ... North Africa's answer to the Pak tribal areas... , the Malian army said on its website.
[SouthFront] On January 25, a supply convoy of the US military was targeted by an IED attack in the Naseriyah area in the Iraqi province of Dhi Qar. There were no confirmed reports about casualties and most likely the explosion caused material damage only.
Over the past months, attacks on US supply convoys in the country have become a regular occurrence and their intensity has been growing.
Recently, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq – ‘Ashab al-Kahf, one of the groups responsible for attacks on US convoys, declared that it will attack not only supply convoys but US troops also in the provinces of Kirkuk, Saladin and Nineveh. By this move, anti-US forces likely seek to limit the freedom of movement of US troops in the country.
[IsraelTimes] Fatality named as Muhammad Abu Nijm; earlier, 145 people arrested overnight in northern village of Tur’an over suspected involvement in brawls, shootings, arson.
Arab on Arab — though Hamas loudly proclaims this yet another Israeli assassination — but with potential concerns for Israel.
A bigwig in the Islamic Movement
...the Islamic Movement in Israel is the local branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, appearing on the scene in the 1970s, then splitting into the usual militant and political arms: the outlawed militant Northern Branch, based in Umm al-Fahm in the Galilee, and the Southern Branch, based in Kafr Qasim near Tel Aviv, which hopes to achieve the same goals via Israeli politics and is part of the Obama-era Arab Joint List project. It’s been estimated that 10% of Israel’s Arabs are connected to the organization, if only as recipients of its many charities. Raed Saleh is the Northern Branch’s fiery big kahuna, though he fancies the title "Sheikh of Al Aqsa" as more suitable, and openly supports Hamas, Erdogan’s Turkey, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. He cycles in and out of Israeli prisons for all the usual reasons...
was rubbed out and a second man suffered a sucking chest wound moderately injured on Sunday when a gunman opened fire in the central city of Jaffa.
The Northern Branch expanded into Jaffa two decades ago, belatedly attracted by the 40% of the population that is Arab...
Mohammad Abu Nijm, a well-known activist in the political movement,
...in this case alternate terms for fiery emir and Muslim terror group, though no doubt he oversaw the charities as well...
was critically injured in the shooting. He and the second man were taken to Wolfson Hospital in Holon for treatment, where Abu Nijm later departed this vale of tears.
