Libyan Air Force destroys Russian air defense system used by Haftar's forces

In a statement on Thursday, the room said their fighter jets had destroyed Sukhoi 22 warplane at al-Watiya airbase on Wednesday, in addition to howitzer artillery, and a tank and seized some vehicles.

"Our operations will continue and will be intensified until the attacking forces are defeated." The room said.

a Russian newspaper cited Libyan social media activists' photos showing a Russian Pantsir S-1 air defense system arriving in al-Jufra airbase via a UAE transportation jet in order to back up Haftar's forces.

The newspaper says the system was seen on a Germany-made truck, saying that only the UAE has this air defense system.

"The UAE supported Haftar with military vehicles, warplanes, and other combat supplies, which means it has provided him with this Russian air defense system." The newspaper added.

A source from Volcano of rage Operation said earlier they had destroyed trucks and ammo going to Gharyan from al-Jufra, with reports saying the Russian air defense system was among the destroyed items.

Thousands of Malians demonstrate to demand end to massacres
[Al Jazeera] Thousands of people have taken to the streets in Mali's capital to demand an end to attacks in the centre of the country where there has been an increase in ethnic violence.

Police said 3,000 attended the rally on Friday in Bamako, while organisers put the number of the demonstrators at least 5,000.

Ethnic tensions in central Mali have surged since an gang led by preacher Amadou Koufa emerged in 2015.

The group recruits mainly from among the Fulani
... a peculiarly brutal tribe of Moslem herdsmen infesting Mali, Niger, Nigeria, and probably other places that are light on law and order and heavy on tribal identity...
- primarily cattle breeders and traders - and it has clashed with the Dogon and Bambara - traditionally sedentary farmers who have formed their own self-defence militias.

Friday's demonstration was organised by a youth association demanding the disarming of militia and for people to "say no to hate" whatever their ethnicity.

"Too much blood has been spilled. It has to stop or there will be no life left in the centre of Mali," demonstrator Habitatou Diallo said.

There has been a swathe of mass killings in recent months. At least 488 Fulani civilians died in attacks carried out in the central regions of Mopti and Segou between January 1, 2018, and May 16, 2019, according to the United Nations
...a formerly good idea gone bad...
mission in Mali (MINUSMA). In the same period, armed Fulanis had "caused 63 deaths" among civilians in the Mopti region.

In late March, 160 Fulanis were slaughtered, in the one the bloodiest attacks in Mali's history, while fresh ethnic violence erupted like lava from a volcano this week leading to 41 further deaths in the ethnic Dogon villages of Gangafani and Yoro - the latest in a cycle of tit-for-tat attacks between the warring communities despite the army sending in troops.

President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, who rejects the idea of an "inter-ethnic conflict", on Thursday named the former interim president Dioncounda Traore as high representative for the region to report back to him.

The Red Thingy, meanwhile, said on Friday that some 2,800 people fleeing the violence had taken refuge in the town of Bandiagara in the east of Mopti region where aid including utensils and bedding had been distributed.

UN peacekeeping chief Jean-Pierre Lacroix, visiting the country on Friday, said in a statement "the situation has reached what one could call an alert level with the dreadful massacres of the past few weeks and days.

Two Chicago-area men convicted of providing support to Islamic State
[NEWS.YAHOO] Two reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
... home of Al Capone, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel,...
-area men were found guilty on Thursday of supporting 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....
in a federal case in which one of them was accused of saying he hoped to see the jihadist group's flag over the White House, local media reported.

Edward Schimenti and Joseph Jones,
...Joseph D. Jones, also known as Yusuf Abdulhaqq, is a loving family man, former army brat, and convert. Edward Schimenti, a.k.a. Abdul Wali, was banned by the local Black Lives Matter group for being too radical...
both 37, were convicted for providing material support and resources to murderous Moslems in a jury trial in U.S. District Court in Chicago. Schimenti was also found guilty of lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, the Chicago Sun Times reported.

The men could face up to 20 years in prison when they are sentenced at a later date, according to the U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of Illinois.

The men from Zion, Illinois, about 50 miles (80 km) north of Chicago, were accused of pledging allegiance to Islamic State and using social media to back violence in support of the murderous Moslem group, according to court papers.

Jones and Schimenti were also accused of discussing backing Islamic State with two undercover FBI employees and an informant and sharing photographs of themselves displaying the Islamic State flag at a state park, according to court documents.

Schimenti told the informant he would like to see the flag "on top of the White House," according to a 77-page criminal complaint filed against the men.

Attorneys for the men argued that they were entrapped by federal agents and what they wrote and talked about was protected by their constitutional right to free speech.

"It was the government that created this entire case out of thin air," they wrote in a motion filed in court in 2018.

The men's lawyers also wrote in court papers that an undercover agent asked Schimenti if he wanted to "rock it out," which he interpreted to be an invitation to commit a violent act. He refused, walked out of the meeting, and told Jones he never wanted to see those people again.

The men were also accused of providing cellular phones to the informant, believing they would be used to set off explosives in Islamic State attacks, the complaint said.

A week before they were arrested in April 2017, Jones and Schimenti drove the informant to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, believing the informant would be flying to Syria to fight with Islamic State, according to court documents.

’s upcoming controversial plan on the Israeli-Paleostinian conflict.

The protesters rallied in the capital Amman and other cities after Friday prayers, chanting slogans in support of the Paleostinian cause and in condemnation of the plan ‐ which Trump has called the "deal of the century."

The demonstrators also denounced a US-led conference, which is slated to be held in Bahrain on June 25 and 26, during which the first part of Trump’s so-called "peace plan" will be unveiled.

They also stressed that the Jordanian people would prevent the implementation of such a deal, which is widely reported to be highly biased in favor of the Israeli regime.

All Paleostinian factions have boycotted the event, slamming Washington for what they view as an attempt to offer financial rewards for Paleostinians to accept the Israeli occupation.

The Paleostinians have already rejected Trump’s Middle East initiative as "the slap of the century."

The Washington Post said in April that the plan is likely to "stop short of ensuring a separate, fully sovereign Paleostinian state."

The Paleostinians are planning to hold a "popular uprising" later this month in conjunction with the Manama conference.
