[ToloNews] As Taliban ...Arabic for students... attacks continue, an army commander in the north said that "hundreds of troops" have been deployed to protect the Hairatan border town in the northern province of Balkh.
Kaldar district has been contested between the government forces and the Taliban in the last few weeks, something that has threatened trade and transit through Hairatan that shares a border with Uzbekistan.
The forces have been stationed at bases as close as five kilometers to the east and west of the border town, said Sayed Saadullah Hashemi, the deputy commander of Afghan Army’s 209 Shaheen Corps.
He said that no attack has happened by the Taliban in the last two days.
"Right now, security forces, including commandos, the border forces, the special units have created a security belt within a five kilometers area to protect the border town from all sides," Hashemi said.
Officials in Hairatan said no truck has entered the border from Uzbekistan in the last two days while normally 250 trucks cross the border to Afghanistan daily.
"The recent wave of insecurity in the north has reduced the traffic at the border town," said Jamshid Khorasanpoor, head of maintenance and service department of Hairatan.
Residents of the border town said markets are closed and many families have left their homes following the rise of insecurity in Balkh.
"People are worried. One goes to Mazar (the capital of Balkh), while others go to villages," said Abdul Karim, a resident of Hairatan border town.
"The town is closed. People are scared," said Fida Mohammad, a resident of Hairatan.
According to local officials, the Taliban has reached as close as five kilometers to Hairatan after capturing Kaldar and Shortepa districts in Balkh. But army commanders assured that they would use all their resources to protect the area.
"We will use all our efforts and resources, especially at the border forces regiment, to defend and protect the area," said Mohammad Jan Mohammadi, a border forces commander in the north.
Taliban has captured nine districts in Balkh, increasing their pressure on the border town of Hairatan.
"We will soon launch an operation in various parts," Hairatan police chief Mohammad Shafi Faiz said.
Zare, Kushinda, Sholgara. Chimtal, Chahar Bolak, Balkh, Dawlat Abad, Shortepa, and Kaldar districts in Balkh have recently fallen to the Taliban.

Earlier, the CTO regime was introduced in part of the territory of Nalchik and the Baksan region of Kabardino-Balkaria.
Kabardino-Balkaria is one of those North Caucuses republics in southwestern Russia bordering Georgia. The North Caucuses is Caucuses Emirate territory, though the younger generation find ISIS appealing, and many of them have wandered down to Syria to cause trouble.
As stated in the NAC, as a result of the shootout, five bandits were destroyed. No one was injured among the local residents. There are no casualties of law enforcement personnel. At the site of the clash, operational-search measures and investigative actions are being carried out.
[WBUR] A group of heavily-armed men are engaged in an ongoing standoff Saturday with Massachusetts police, prompting shelter-in-place orders in some areas and sparking massive delays on the holiday weekend as a portion of Interstate 95 remains shut down.
The standoff began around 2 a.m. when police noticed two cars pulled over on I-95 with hazard lights on, authorities said at a Saturday press briefing.
Between eight to 10 men were clad in military-style gear with long guns and pistols, Mass State Police Col. Christopher Mason said.
The men refused to put down their weapons or comply with authorities' orders, claiming to be from a group "that does not recognize our laws," police said. They took off into a wooded area, where two men have been arrested.
Update at 1 p.m. ET from links in comments: They identified themselves as Rise of the Moors, a Moorish Sovereign Citizens group.
This is the Mass State Police twitter feed covering the situation. I don't think there'll be much press coverage until they figure out whether the headline is "White Supremacists Run Amok" or "Heroic African-Americans Protest Centuries of Oppression".
The Moorish Sovereign Citizens movement, also known as the Indigenous Moors, have the queer idea that they’re the native people of North America and therefore entitled to ignore U.S. laws and retake title to any property that catches their eye, which they’ve done with distressing regularity since the 1990s. Both the Indigenous Moors and the Nation of Islam split off from the Moorish Science Temple movement that started a century ago. Black Lives Matter intersects with them and Antifa; the Not Fucking Around Coalition has their own peculiar take on the same entitled Black Separatist notions, with a slightly different mysticism.
They show up here with some regularity — Page 1: WoT os definitely the right choice, article moved to Firth Column.
Total gaslighting when listening to the news. All they would say is that it was a militia group, implying white supremacists. Even the state patrol spokesman wouldn't give any description. Cowards all.

trying to get the cops to step on their d*cks. And maybe they did, if these people were not breaking the law.
They didn’t have legal gun licenses, according to the various links. Very probably not legal driving licenses. as well, and even more probably have not been paying taxes, because their website says they’re entitled not to.
But travelling on the highway at two in the morning suggests to me they were hoping to reach their destination without being noticed along the way.
Mass gun laws seem voluminous, but this appears to be the gist: Massachusetts residents 15 years and older who wish to possess, carry, and transport firearms, ammunition, and feeding devices are required to have a firearms license. Firearms licenses are issued by municipal police departments.
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] Antifa ...the armed wing of the Democratic Party... accounts on Twitter are promoting a direct action against a rally outside a Los Angeles spa where a woman complained last week that a transgender individual's male genitals were exposed to women and girls in the female section.
The Koreatown health club became the center of controversy after a female customer confronted spa staff about a transwoman with male genitals being permitted to disrobe in the spa's women section. The confrontation was caught on camera over the weekend, fueling online discourse with threats of a boycott against the spa. Antifa groups are now painting the incident as as a matter of trans rights—opposed to the rights of "cisgender" females to not be exposed to male anatomy.
"Please consider joining us as we stand against rampant transphobia in Los Angeles," tweeted SoCal Antifa, a self-described group of Antifa activists spread throughout Southern Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,. The Twitter account has turned off comments.

Given all the private and Government property destroyed over the last 18 months is nearing $1 Billion. It should be obvious to even the dumbest politician that the citizenry is PISSED TO HELL AND BACK and likely will slap them with it election day.
SO THE QUESTION IS:
When will the Governor declare Political CYA Martial Law?
Or will the Citizenry start addressing the issue?
[BBC] Ten churches have been vandalised in Alberta, Canada, in attacks that police have linked to anger over historic injustices against indigenous people.Investigators in the province said orange and red paint was daubed on the churches in the city of Calgary.
The premier of Alberta said the attacks were "appalling".
It comes after unmarked graves were found around former church-run residential schools that indigenous children were once forced to attend.
The grim discoveries prompted some calls for national celebrations in honour of Canada Day on 1 July to be cancelled.
Alberta's Premier Jason Kenney, said on Thursday one of the vandalised locations was an African Evangelical Church in the city of Calgary.
He said its congregation was made up entirely of former refugees who fled countries where churches are often vandalised and burned down.
"These folks came to Canada with the hope that they could practise their faith peacefully," tweeted Mr Kenney, a Conservative. "Some of them are traumatised by such attacks.
"This is where hatred based on collective guilt for historic injustices leads us. Let's seek unity, respect & reconciliation instead."

[IsraelTimes] Shlomo Noginski, an Israeli citizen, hospitalized in stable, pH balanced condition; attacker apprehended and identified as 24-year-old Khaled Awad.
A Chabad rabbi was attacked and stabbed multiple times outside a Jewish center in Boston on Thursday in an apparent antisemitic attack. He was hospitalized in stable, pH balanced condition.
Rabbi Shlomo Noginski was attacked while outside Shaloh House, a Chabad institute for Russian-speaking Jews in the Brighton neighborhood, Chabad.org reported. The report said a man approached Noginski, who was outside talking on his phone. He drew a gun and told Noginski to take him to his car. When he tried to force him inside, Noginski tried to flee and the man stabbed him repeatedly.
Rabbi Dan Rodkin, the executive director of the Shaloh House, said Noginski was stabbed eight times.
A Boston Police Department spokesperson said the victim was stabbed outside the building that houses the school and synagogue on Chestnut Hill Street in Brighton at 1:19 p.m.
The attacker was apprehended by police, who later identified him as Khaled Awad,
... an Egyptian resident of Brighton who has been in the U.S. for four years. Possibly he is an immigrant, whether legal or not, possibly he is only here temporarily as a student — the internet is remarkably silent in the question...
24. He has been charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a police officer.
Police said they were stepping up patrols at nearby synagogues and Jewish sites.
Police did not provide details of Awad’s motivation or immediately classify the attack as a hate crime. However, a clean conscience makes a soft pillow... local Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley said it appeared to be antisemitic.
"While we await further details & pray for his recovery, let me say plainly that all of our neighbors deserve to live free from fear. Antisemitism is a clear and persistent threat to our communities," tweeted Pressley.
Pressley is a member of the so-called Squad of progressive Democratic politicians, including Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar ...Somali-American Dem representative from Minnesota. She was apparently married to her brother and may be her own grandmaw on her mother's side... , who have been accused of leading an anti-Israel charge in the party. Omar has also frequently been accused of antisemitism.
The incident occurred at a time that a summer camp was taking place in the building.
Chabad said most campers were off-site, while others were safely in the building at the time of the attack. The institution briefly went into lockdown.
A man suspected of stabbing a rabbi several times near a Jewish day school in Boston was held without bail Friday at his arraignment pending a hearing to determine whether he is a danger to society.
Khaled Awad, 24, pleaded not guilty "Wudn't me." to assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and assault and battery on a police officer in connection with the Thursday afternoon stabbing of Rabbi Shlomo Noginski in the city’s Brighton neighborhood.
The attorney who represented Awad on Friday could not be reached for comment. A number for Awad, who’s from Brighton, could not be found.
The hearing to determine whether he’s a danger is scheduled for July 8. Awad has no record in Massachusetts but has faced charges of battery and theft in Florida and was sent to a mental health facility there, prosecutors said.
The suspect approached the rabbi with a gun and a knife while he was talking on the phone, sitting on the steps of the school, according to prosecutors and Rabbi Dan Rodkin, executive director of Shaloh House. The suspect allegedly demanded the rabbi’s car keys, and Noginski ran across the street to a park where he was stabbed.
According to the court documents, when police located the suspect, he pointed what appeared to be a firearm at them. Three officers drew their firearms and ordered the suspect to drop his weapon multiple times, authorities said. The suspect then lowered his weapon and threw it to the ground.
The suspect kicked one of the officers in the stomach as he was being assisted into a transport vehicle for booking, police said.
Noginski, a father of 12, experienced anti-Semitism as a child in the Soviet Union when he was badly beaten in one attack, Rodkin told Fox News. In response, his mother put him in martial arts classes and he is now a black belt in judo, Rodkin said.
The family eventually moved to Israel where Noginski became a successful businessman and was a city councilman at one point. He moved to Boston to serve the city's Russian-speaking Jewish community, Rodkin said.
"He dropped everything in Israel to come here to be a rabbi," he said. "It's hard to find a person who's more kind, more gentle, very sincere, very humble."
Successful businessman in Israel before he became a rabbi, according to Fox News, so probably supplementing his rabbinical salary from his own resources. My synagogue had a rabbinic intern who had been a successful lawyer before feeling called to a new career — neither dressed like students.
Incidentally, I happened by the local Chabad building yesterday, and noticed I had to be buzzed in despite being in a quiet suburb, just like my synagogue.
Prosecutors said Awad has no record in Massachusetts, but has faced charges of battery and theft in Florida and was sent to a mental health facility there. He’ll be held without bail until a dangerousness hearing on July 8.
His former college roommates and friends at the University of Southern Florida, where he studied chemical engineering until very recently, say Awad had showed a propensity for violence.
“He started becoming violent,” said Eric Valiente, a friend of Awad’s.
His roommate Aidan says he and Awad were friends until Awad attacked him in their shared kitchen on day, prompting Aidan to move out and get a restraining order.
“We were friends, to be honest with you. I’m Jewish. And he knew that since I moved in,” said Aidan Anderson, the suspect’s former roommate.
Aidan and Eric say Awad’s beliefs towards certain cultures became evident early on.
“He was very much anti-Semitic. He would say like all types of Jewish jokes. I thought he was joking at first and then I started to see seriousness in his comments,” said Eric.
After the assault in fall of 2020, the friend distanced themselves from Khaled, but still say they’re shocked he would go so far as to assault a stranger with a weapon.
[OneIndia] The National Investigation Agency conducted raids in Hyderabad in connection with the Darbhanga Railway Station Blast Case.
During the raids, the NIA searched the homes of accused Mohammad Nasir Khan and Imran Malik in New Mallepally. The searches led to the recovery and seizures of various incriminating material and multiple digital devices.
The items recovered from the premises of the accused persons contained various documents pertaining to procedure for fabrication of IED and materials used for making of IEDs.
The accused originally hail from Shamli district in Uttar Pradesh. Earlier, the UP police had arrested a father son duo-Mohammad Haji Salim and his son Mohammad Kafil from Kairana, UP in connection with the same case.
The case was first registered in June 2021 following a kaboom on Platform 1 of the Darbhanga Railway Station. The parcel in which the explosive was placed was booked at Secunderabad and arrived by train. The NIA later took over the probe.
The accused persons were arrested from Hyderabad on June 30 2021. Preliminary investigations revealed that this strike was part of a trans-national conspiracy hatched by the Lashkar-e-Tayiba to execute terror acts across the country and cause large scale damage to life and property.
Nasir and Khan had acted on the instructions of their handlers in Pakistain. The two accused who are brothers fabricated an incendiary IED and packed it in a parcel of cloth and booked the same in a long distance train from Secunderabad to Darbhanga.
The NIA learnt that the aim of the accused was to cause a kaboom in the train, which in turn would have led to a fire breaking out resulting in loss of lives and property. It was found that Khan had visited Pakistain in the year 2012 and had received training from his handlers in the fabrication of IED from locally available channels. He along with his brother Imran was in touch with Pakistain based handlers of LeT over encrypted communication platforms, the NIA said.
While credible information about the connection of the accused persons has been found with the ISI, the probe also found that these persons had taken instructions from their handlers-Iqbal Khana and Asif Khana of Pakistain. Both brothers and Khana are natives of Kairana in Uttar Pradesh. Khana had taken shelter in Pakistain and is one of the most wanted terrorists.
Nasir, the investigation found had visited Pakistain three on the pretext of meeting his blood relatives. In Pakistain he was radicalised by Khana.
[OneIndia] Searches were conducted by the National Investigation Agency at nine locations in Barnala, Moga, Ferozepur in Punjab 1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots.... and Meerut and Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh related to threatening and extortion of money by Khalistan terrorists.
...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...
The case was first registered at Mehna district Moga, Punjab after the police received information that Arshdeep Singh, Charandeep Singh, Beehla Barnala and Ramandeep Singh had formed a gang to extort money from people. The NIA had taken over the probe from the Punjab police in 2021.
The NIA arrested three persons in connection with the case. The NIA says that Arshdeep Singh is a close associate of Hardeep Singh NIjjar,
...a plumber who lives comfortably in Canada’s British Columbia, far from the romantic danger endured by the revolutionaries he commands...
Chief of the Khalistan Tiger Force and it was on his directions that the gang was was formed. The module comprised gangsters and sharp shooters based in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh, India. The arrested persons had killed three Punjab based businessmen. Further they had identified several other targets as well.
In the searches conducted, the NIA recovered empty bullet cartridges, one polybag containing 122 grams of narcotic substance, digital devices including, Compact drives, Mobile Phones, Sim cards and many incriminating documents.
[Rudaw] A roadside explosion killed a woman and injured 6 others from a single family who were en route to a village near the border of Tuz Khurmatu on Friday, according to a local official.
Hassan Zain al-Abidin, the mayor of Tuz Khurmatu, told Rudaw that "the bomb was concealed within a jerry can. The bomb went kaboom! as the family was returning from Tuz Khurmatu to the village of Zanjali. The security forces are presently investigating at the scene of the incident."
"The woman who was killed was 40 years old and the mother of four children. Her brother, children and spouse were maimed and are now being treated at Komari Hospital in Tuz Khurmatu," Abidin said.
The blast was carried out by the 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.... (ISIS), according to the mayor of Tuz Khurmatu, given the increased activity of ISIS gunnies near the border. The villagers of Zanjali had been warned to evacuate due to the threat of attack by ISIS. He said they did not heed the warnings and, unfortunately, this incident happened as a result.
A lack of coordination between security forces in areas disputed between Erbil and Baghdad - largely in Salahaddin, Kirkuk, ... a thick stew of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and probably Antarcticans, all of them mutually hostile most of the time... and Diyala provinces - has created a security vacuum that ISIS sleeper cells exploit to carry out ambushes, attacks and kidnappings.
Three farmers were kidnapped near Tuz Khurmatu earlier in March by ISIS
Abidin said that the kidnapped were Sunni Arabs and residents of Hlewa village, located ten kilometers west of Tuz Khurmatu.
ISIS gunnies were killed in a ground and air operation between Kurdish Peshmerga and French forces in areas between the Diyala districts of Kifri and Tuz Khurmatu in June. The offensive was "in Dire Revenge" for the deaths of four Peshmerga troops in ISIS attacks
[IsraelTimes] Red Islamic Thingy says 61 hurt, including six hit by rubber-tipped bullets; under agreement with government, settlers to leave site by 4 p.m. Friday.
Hundreds of Paleostinians gathered outside the illegal Evyatar outpost in the West Bank late Thursday, throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails and shooting fireworks at IDF troops at the scene, the army said.
The violent mostly peaceful protest came on the eve of a partial evacuation of the wildcat settlement set for Friday under an agreement reached between the government and the settlers.
IDF troops responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.
The Paleostinian Red Islamic Thingy reported it treated 61 people, including six hit by rubber bullets. The rest suffered from tear gas inhalation.
The protest came on the final night that civilians will remain at the contested site.
Earlier this week Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Defense Minister Benny Gantz reached an agreement whereby the settlers will evacuate Evyatar by 4 p.m. Friday, but the state will work to legalize control of the land and establish a yeshiva at the site at a later date.
In the meantime, the Israel Defense Forces will establish an "immediate round-the-clock presence" at the outpost.
The Defense Ministry will carry out a survey of the land to establish which parts can be declared state land and which parts are considered to be private Paleostinian property.
"Lands that are found to belong to the state will be declared as such, while those that are private will be evacuated," a statement released late Wednesday by Cabinet Secretary Shalom Shlomo said, noting that buildings will not be demolished until the land’s status is clarified.
Bennett, a former director of the Yesha council settler lobby, was reported Sunday to be eager to avoid the spectacle of the outpost being removed under his leadership, especially given the current political situation in which the coalition is struggling to maintain a majority in the Knesset.
Earlier iterations of Evyatar have been razed several times since Israelis first tried to settle the site in 2013.
The outpost is located on land south of Nablus that Paleostinians say had historically been part of the Paleostinian villages of Beita, Kablan and Yitma, though residents of those towns have been barred access for decades over what the IDF has said were security reasons. The land went uncultivated, opening it up for confiscation by the state for public use, based on West Bank property laws. Before that can happen though, the Civil Administration is required to survey the land to confirm its status, a step that Evyatar settlers did not wait for before moving in.
The area near the outpost has seen repeated festivities in recent weeks as Paleostinians protested the creation of the outpost, in some cases hurling stones at troops and burning swaths of land. Israeli soldiers have responded with riot dispersal munitions and in some cases, live bullets, killing four Paleostinians.
Several Palestinian militant groups released statements praising the nightly 'confusion unit' activities by Palestinian youth near the Evyatar outpost in the #WestBank. The statements also aim to encourage the spread of the activity to other West Bank settlements. #Israelpic.twitter.com/KpYjGiPpl4
A prisoner exchange took place between Syrian government forces and Turkish-backed armed factions in the countryside of Aleppo, north #Syria, and included the exchange of ten prisoners from both parties. https://t.co/dL1ZViE6ah
The exchange took place through the Abu al-Zindin crossing in the countryside of al-Bab city, east Aleppo, where each party handed five prisoners to the other party.
The armed bandidosbully boyz of the Ottoman Turkish-backed Syrian National Army handed each Milad Ashor, Hani al-Youssef, Amar al-Abdullah, Mortada Mahfouz, and Youssef Hamdan over to government forces, a security source from the government forces who requested anonymity said.
The prisoners included officers, two of which have been prisoners for more than four years, he added.
The same source denied the authenticity of what was reported by government-backed security sources regarding the release of 37 prisoners from the opposition in return for their five members, adding, "the government aims to raise the morale of their members and to show itself as caring about them and not leaving them in captivity."
Social media websites of pro-Syrian National Army individuals published the names of those who the Syrian government released, including Hussein Issa, Hussein al-His, Muhammad Diya’ Boulad, Mahmud al-Rifa’i, and Ahmed Shamiya.
The prisoner exchange followed negotiations between the government and military commander of the Mutasim Brigade, Farouq Abu Bakr, the government security source added.
The source pointed out that Muhammad Diya’ Boulad, who was released by the government, is a cousin of Saif Abu Bakr, an official in the Hamza Division, and Hussein Issa, who was also released by the government, is a nephew of an official in Sultan Murad Division.
