It was integrated civilized and natural beauty

of Burlesque dancer, Zorita walking her pet snake,
evoked in me and then considering her time before WWII, and where she might have lived before,
visions of memories of perhaps those places,
lead me to post these images.
Rural, Natural, Wild Life Surrounding, a civilized space... walking your snake in 1937, maybe not that odd...

Afghanistan
Explosion in Kabul killed and injured civilians
Subhead ought to be ISIS-K go after Hazeras yet again.
[KhaamaPress] An explosion killed at least one and maimed three more civilian people in Police District 18, Dasht-e-Barchi of Kabul on Saturday afternoon, November 13.

Spokesperson of the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
Zabiullah Mujahid in a Twitter post confirmed the casualties but said that the incident happened after a car caught fire but eyewitnesses have said that the car was targeted by a magnetic bomb.

Though no group has grabbed credit for the incident, the Taliban officials have acknowledged that they have started investigations about that.

Dasht-e-Barchi in the west of Afghanistan is a residence where mostly the Hazara
...a grouping of Dari-speaking people of Sino-Tibetan descent inhabiting Afghanistan and Pakistain. They are predominantly Shia Moslems and not particularly warlike, which makes them favored targets...
(Shite Moslems) are living who are often targeted by the ISIS-K affiliates.
A bomb went kaboom! on a mini-bus Saturday on a busy commercial street in a Kabul neighborhood mainly populated by members of Afghanistan's minority Hazara community, emergency workers and the bus driver said. At least one person was killed and five maimed.

Workers with the ambulance teams at the scene told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named that the blast appeared to have been caused by a bomb on the bus.

The bus driver, speaking to the AP at the hospital, said that at one point during his route, a suspicious man got onto the bus and a few minutes later, the earth-shattering kaboom went off at the back of the bus.

The driver, who goes by a single name Murtaza, said he saw two passengers with their clothes on fire falling out of the back of the vehicle while other passengers escaped out the front.

The front man for Afghanistan's ruling Taliban
...Arabic for students...
, Zabihullah Mujahid, told the AP that a fire broke out on the mini-bus and caused a kaboom, killing one person and wounding another.

Photos from the scene showed the burning wreckage of a vehicle with a pall of smoke rising into the air. The explosion took place on the main avenue running through Dashti Barchi, a sprawling neighborhood on the west side of Kabul largely populated by Hazaras.

Afghanistan's Hazaras, who are mostly Shiite Moslems, have been the target of a brutal campaign of violence for the past several years, blamed on the Islamic State

Africa Horn
Five killed in crackdown on Sudan anti-military takeover protests
[AlAhram] Sudanese security forces killed at least five demonstrators Saturday in a crackdown on anti-military takeover protests, medics said, after the military tightened its grip by forming a new ruling council.

The pro-democracy protests come nearly three weeks after top general Abdel Fattah al-Burhan ousted the government, detained the civilian leadership and declared a state of emergency.

The independent Central Committee for Sudanese Doctors said five protesters were killed in Saturday's rallies, two in Khartoum's twin city of Omdurman and three in east Khartoum.

Arabia
Yemen strikes kill more than 180 rebels
[Al Ahram] The Saudi-led coalition has been reporting high corpse counts in almost daily strikes since October aimed at repelling a rebel offensive on the city of Marib, the government's last stronghold in the north.

The Iran-backed Huthis rarely comment on the tolls, which have exceeded 3,000 in total. AFP cannot independently verify the coalition's figures.

A coalition statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency said that the latest strikes had focused on the front line west of Marib, near the ruins of ancient Sirwah, and on al-Bayda province farther south.

Cyprus police to probe how docked migrant boat slipped away
[Al Ahram] Police said in a statement Friday that the boat carrying 61 people was intercepted early Wednesday off the Mediterranean island's southern coast and escorted to port in the resort town of Paphos.

The boat had initially set sail from Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
, Lebanon Hezbollahstan
...In 2006 unknown persons blew up Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, the car he was traveling in, the road he was traveling on, and a few innocent bystanders of no account whatsoever. The person or persons unknow weren't Hezbollah, you can bet on that. Really. Even though there was an international tribunal that said it was them...
, and was headed to Italia, but had to stop in Cyprus due to choppy seas.

Police said the migrants colonists expressed a wish to continue their trip to Italia and that none had applied for asylum in Cyprus.

But the boat resumed its journey westward on Thursday evening without apparently anyone noticing. Once the alarm was raised, police patrol boats gave chase and caught up with the boat, but its occupants rejected police overtures to turn back.

Police said they continued to escort the boat until it reached 52 nautical miles (60 miles, 96 km) from Cyprus' coastline.

Police said two separate reports into the incident indicated that there were grounds for a disciplinary investigation against the dozen members of the police.

Belarus, of all places, is making war on Poland, of all places, by forcing them to accept Syrian and other Muslim refugees -- in retaliation for EU sanctions.

Does this make any f--king sense? At all?

The Grand Turk
Israeli Couple Arrested in Turkey on Espionage Charges
More on this story from yesterday.
[PUBLISH.TWITTER]

Anadolu Agency said a Ottoman Turkish national was also arrested. Police detained them after a tip off from an employee working in the Camlica radio and television tower on the Asian side of Istanbul.

The employee claimed they were taking photographs of Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than there are in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really most important...
's nearby home from the tower's restaurant earlier this week.

They were formally arrested pending trial for "political and military espionage" by an Istanbul court.

In a statement issued late Friday, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid denied the couple work for an "Israeli agency." He said his department has been in regular contact with the pair and is trying to organize their release.

Israeli newspaper Haaretz identified the couple as Natalie and Mordi Oknin. Citing their lawyer, it said they were taking photographs of the Ottoman-era Dolmabahce Palace while taking a ferry. Parts of Dolmabahce, located on the city's European side, are used as a presidential working office.
The Times of Israel adds:
The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the decaying remnant of the Ottoman Empire...
is said to be weighing between bringing charges of espionage against an Israeli couple detained in Turkey for taking photographs of the president’s palace or charging them with a lesser offense of engaging in acts that harm the country’s national security, Israeli TV reported Saturday night.

Channel 12 reported, without citing sources, that Ottoman Turkish prosecutors were intent on charging the couple and were still considering between the serious espionage charge or a lesser charge. The news channel also reported that the Israeli government feared that Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First would exploit the crisis to extract some sort of price from Israel for the release of the couple.

Also Saturday, Walla news reported that Israel has not received an explanation from Ottoman Turkish officials for the arrest and detention of the couple, Mordy and Natali Oknin, and officials increasingly suspect the arrests were made for political gain.

The Foreign Ministry still hopes the standoff can be solved through Israel’s consulate, without political actors getting involved. "But right now, it doesn’t look good," a bigwig told Walla.

An unidentified source familiar with Turkey’s legal system told Channel 12, "It is clear that this was a political, rather than a legal, decision... It is clear that elements in Erdogan’s circle exerted pressure and briefed him as if these were Mossad agents on an Israeli mission."

Iraq
Iraqi Security Forces kill prominent ISIS member in Kirkuk
[NPASYRIA] On Saturday, Iraqi Ministry of Defense said, its forces killed the leader of the sniper detachment in 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.

(ISIS), nicknamed Abu Qutada, in Kirkuk.

In an ambush, the Mechanized Infantry Division of the Iraqi army managed to kill Abu Qutada and wound two of the murderous Moslem organization in the al-Bu Muhammad area in Wadi al-Shay in Kirkuk governorate, the ministry stated.

Wadi al-Shay is located southwest of the town of Daquq, about 40 km south of Kirkuk,
... a thick stew of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and probably Antarcticans, all of them mutually hostile most of the time...
where ISIS sleeper cells are still active in that vast area.

Simultaneously, the Iraqi army and the Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF) launched an eight-side operation in the Hamrin Mountain range in Diyala governorate, in the center of the country.

"The operation is targeting more than twenty targets of ISIS deployed over an area of 100 km," the front man for the Diyala area in the PMF, Sadiq al-Husseini, said.

The operation has come to block the void spaces, comb the rough hills, and secure more of the Kirkuk-Baghdad road, which passes in the northeastern part of Diyala," he added.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Turkish backed group log Kurdish farmer’s olive trees in Afrin: locals
Leaving no insult unturned, though they haven’t got as far as the traditional silk strangling cords yet.
[Rudaw] A Ottoman Turkish backed proxy group in Syria has logged more than 50 olive trees of a Kurdish farmer in the city of Afrin in northwest Syria, a local source told Rudaw on Saturday.

The source, who spoke to Rudaw on the condition of anonymity, alleges a Ottoman Turkish-backed Syrian rebel group known as Hemzat logged the trees.

"On the 11th of this month, around 50 to 60 olive trees of a Kurdish local in the village of Meydanke were logged by fighters of Hemzat group," the source said.

Video footage sent to Rudaw by Afrin locals shows partially-cut olive trees in a field. The region is a heavy olive producer, but following the Ottoman Turkish operations to the area in 2018, many of the olive fields were seized by Ottoman Turkish backed groups.

"The olive season is very important in our history and for our people, every year they wait for that season to come because their livelihood depends on these olive trees," Hanif Rashid, an agriculture engineer from Afrin, told Rudaw.

"The Ottoman Turkish occupation and their proxies cut off the olive trees and sell them without any ethics or sympathy and deal a large blow to the people." he said. "The people depend on these trees and some of them age more than 60 to 70 years."

Afrin is a Kurdish-majority region in Syria’s northwest. The People’s Protection Units (YPG) took control of the area after regime forces re-deployed to defend Arab-majority areas against rebels at the start of the uprising in 2011. In 2018, The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the decaying remnant of the Ottoman Empire...
and its allied Syrian militias seized control of Afrin, forcefully displacing much of the local population.

The Kurdish population fell by more than 60 percent in only the first two years of the invasion, according to Afrin’s human rights
...which are usually entirely different from personal liberty...
organization.

"According to the latest statistics that we received, the size of the indigenous population of Kurds in the Afrin region reached 34.8 percent in January, while they previously made up 97 percent of the population," reads a statement from the organization published in April 2020.

According to U.N. estimates, upwards of 150,000 Kurds have been displaced, most of them displaced to Shahba camp in Tel Rifaat, north of Aleppo.

Three Iraqis killed in Syria's Al-Hol camp: Monitor
[AlAhram] Three Iraqi nationals, including a woman, were killed in violence inside the northeastern Syrian camp of al-Hol that houses relatives of suspected jihadists, a monitor said Saturday.

The overcrowded camp is under the control of the Kurdish administration running the region but violence, mostly perpetrated 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.

group, is frequent.

According to the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, a woman originally from the northern Iraqi city of djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
died of bullet wounds on Saturday.

On Friday, two Iraqi refugees were killed by suspected IS button men inside a section of the camp where those who have received threats are usually sheltered, Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

Al-Hol is home to an estimated 62,000 people, half of whom are Iraqi nationals.

Most of the camp's residents are people who fled or surrendered during the dying days of IS's self-proclaimed caliphate.

Relatives of suspected foreign IS fighters are held in a separate high-security enclosure.

Al-Hol is rife with IS sleeper cells and weapons. Breakout attempts, attacks on guards, aid workers and members of displaced families are common.

A massive security sweep of the camp in March had led to he arrest of more than 100 suspected IS sympathisers.

The Observatory's Abdel Rahman said "the latest violence could touch off a fresh escalation in the murder rate inside the camp."

Seventy-eight people have been killed in al-Hol so far this year, 58 of them Iraqis, according to the Britannia-based war monitor.

The Kurdish authorities running the area consistently said they did not have the capacity to organise trials for all the detained foreign suspects nor support their families.

Western countries have been wary of the impact mass repatriations could have on domestic security and public opinion.

The living conditions in the desert camp are dire and many organizations have described al-Hol as a security and humanitarian time bomb.

Direct Translation via Google Translate. Edited.
[REGNUM] Two representatives of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) were liquidated in northern Syria by Turkish special forces.
Golly. The special ones. I am impressed.
This was reported on November 13 by Anadolu Ajansı with reference to the Turkish Ministry of National Defense.

According to the military department, the militants were killed while trying to penetrate into the zone of the anti-terrorist operation "Source of Peace".

"The attempt to destabilize the situation was suppressed thanks to the Turkish military," the Turkish Defense Ministry said.

16 Syrian government soldiers killed by ISIS in Deir ez-Zor
[NPASYRIA] On Saturday, a leader and 15 other members of Syrian government forces were killed in an armed clash with the Islamic State

organization (ISIS) in the Masrab Badia, west of Deir ez-Zor, east Syria.

ISIS attacked a military vehicle of the National Defense Forces (NDF) of the Syrian government near the main road in the town of al-Masrab, with machine guns, and killed 16 members, including a big shot, North Press reported a military source from the government forces in Deir ez-Zor.

"Among the dead was Abdussattar al-Sha’eiti, commander of the Lions of the East Army (Arabic: Usud al-Sharqiya) of the government forces, who came from the town of al-Kishkiyah in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor," the source, who declined to be named, added.

After the attack, the government forces brought in large reinforcements to the place of the incident to comb the area after ISIS turbans fled into the depths of the desert.

It should be noted that the Iranian-backed militias and the government forces control large areas of the countryside of Deir ez-Zor, which have recently witnessed heavy festivities with ISIS.

This morning, a member of the Iranian-backed Liwa al-Baqir was killed and another was maimed, as a result of a dispute between them, near the entrance to the city of Deir ez-Zor.
