Arabia
Yemeni National Resistance Forces launch military campaign on Red Sea Coast
[Gulf News] The Yemeni National Resistance Forces, led by Staff Brigadier-General Tarek Mohammed Abdullah Saleh, today (Thursday) launched a large-scale military operation on Yemen’s Red Sea Coast in the direction of Mocha and Al Barah Area, west of Taiz, to liberate new areas from the grip of the Iran-backed Al Houthi
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The Yemeni government has accused the Houthis of having ties to the Iranian government, which wouldn't suprise most of us. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews ...
militias.

Supported by the UAE Armed Forces operating as part of the Saudi-led Coalition, the offensive fits within the ongoing efforts to liberate and secure the Red Sea Coast and lift the anti-Taiz siege from the western front. The operation is backed as well by Yemen’s Southern Resistance and Tahami Movement.

The operation coincides with across-the-board preparations on the part of the National Resistance Forces to widen the battlefronts in their fights against the Iranian-aligned militias in other parts of the Yemen’s Red Sea Coast.

In the meantime, the Saudi-led Arab Coalition Forces’ jets launched intensive raids against Al Houthi militias in Mocha, Jebel Al Shawka, Mowaz, and Albarah areas, destroying a large number of armoured vehicles, expunging, killing and injuring hundreds of the militiamen, with the Yemeni National Forces inflicting heavy damage on the front positions of Al Houthi militias.
A source of the Yemeni National Forces told WAM that thousands of trained resistance elements are advancing across different areas on the Red Sea Coast supported by the Arab Coalition Forces’ aerial bombardment.

"This decisive and qualitative military operation is aimed at liberating the areas controlled by the coup perpetrators," he said, adding that the countdown has already started to liberate the remaining Red Sea directorates which are still under the control of the Iranian-backed elements.

4 Saudi officers dead in Asir checkpoint attack
[Gulf News] Four Saudi officers were rubbed out and four others maimed Thursday when their check post came under gunfire in southern Asir province, state media said citing the interior ministry.

Three officers were instantly killed when the outpost came under attack, the Saudi Press Agency reported, without specifying who was behind it.

Local authorities apprehended two suspects and a third opened fire as he tried to escape, killing the fourth officer.

Authorities did not name the suspects.

In March 2015, the kingdom launched a coalition of Arab states fighting to roll back Iran-backed Al Houthi

Europe
Berlin anti-Semitic assailant turns self in, said to be Palestinian from Syria
[IsraelTimes] An asylum seeker aged 19, belt-wielding attacker was filmed by his victim -- an Arab Israeli who wore a Jewish skullcap as an experiment; clip has caused outrage

A 19-year-old Paleostinian asylum seeker from Syria turned himself in to German police Thursday after his violent anti-Semitic attack on an Arab Israeli man wearing a Jewish skullcap in Berlin caused outrage across Germany.

Police said the suspect they had already identified from the footage and witness statements had presented himself with a lawyer and would face a judge to be held on assault charges.

Bild daily identified him as a Paleostinian from Syria named Knaan S. who was registered at a refugee home in Brandenburg state outside Berlin but was most recently living "out of a suitcase" in the capital.

The victim, initially thought to be Jewish, told German television on Wednesday night that he wasn’t, but wanted to find out whether it was safe to walk in the street dressed as a Jew. He said he wore the skullcap as an experiment because he didn’t believe a friend who told him it’s too dangerous to wear one in public in Germany.

"I am not Jewish, I am an Israeli and I grew up in Israel in an Arab family," Adam Armush, 21, told broadcaster Deutsche Welle. "It was an experience for me to wear the skullcap and go out into the street yesterday."
Deutsche Welle adds:
A police front man said that the man seen on the video trying to whip two young men wearing kippahs, traditional Jewish head coverings also known as yarmulkes, gave himself up just after noon on Thursday. The man was identified as a 19-year-old from Syria, but police gave no details about when he came to Germany or where he is living.

DW was able to interview the two victims and establish the following:

- Neither of them is Jewish. One, Adam, is an Israeli citizen who comes from an Arab family in Israel and who studies veterinarian medicine in Germany. The other, Salah, is a German citizen with Moroccan roots who describes himself as an atheist.

- The two men were given the kippahs as gifts. On Tuesday evening, they donned them on their way to visit an Israeli friend in Berlin to experience what it was like to wear a Jewish symbol in public, but say that this was not designed to provoke anti-Semitism.

- They were taking selfies when they were abused in Arabic by the attacker, who then tried to whip Adam with his belt. They told the attacker in Arabic and German to stop, and Adam filmed the incident. Two women intervened, while others in a crowd of onlookers did not.

- Adam says he told journalists who asked after the attack that he was not Jewish, but that most news hounds simply assumed he was Jewish because of the kippah.

Police released no information on Thursday about the attacker's possible motivations. He is heard yelling the Arabic word for "Jew" on the video.

Lost in the uproar created by the video on Wednesday, the Antisemitism Research and Information Office (RIAS) released statistics about the number of anti-Semitic incidents in Berlin in 2017. RIAS said it had counted 947 such instances of anti-Semitism last year ‐ a 60-percent increase over 2016.

Better numbers for better prevention
Up to 90 percent of anti-Semitic incidents in Germany are classified as right-wing holy warrior. But Germany's newly appointed Anti-Semitism Commissioner Felix Klein says better data is needed.

"One urgent topic is criminal statistics, according to which 90 percent of anti-Semitic crimes are committed by far-right holy warriors," Klein told Die Welt newspaper. "But I hear something different from Jews in Germany. Above all, Moslem anti-Semitism is greater than the statistics express. But until now, we only have these numbers."

Suspected Brussels Jewish museum killer to stand trial
[IsraelTimes] Belgian judge rules there is enough evidence against French jihadist Mehdi Nemmouche in 2014 attack that killed four, including two Israeli tourists

Frenchie Mehdi Nemmouche
...radicalized in prison and linked to Salim Benghalem, who was the leader of the Buttes-Chaumont terrorist network and France’s chief ISIS recruiter...
was ordered Thursday to stand trial in Brussels for allegedly killing four people at a Jewish museum four years ago in a jihadist attack, his lawyer said.

Judges decided there was enough evidence to try Nemmouche, 33, and alleged accomplice Nacer Bendrer, who is also French, in the Belgian capital for the attack in 2014, lawyer Henri Laquay told AFP.

He did not name a date but the trial is expected to begin later this year or early next year.

The judges decided there was not enough evidence to put Mounir Attalah, a third Frenchie linked to the attack, on trial.

On May 24, 2014 a gunman armed with an assault rifle opened fire in the entrance hall of the museum in the center of the Belgian capital, killing two Israeli tourists, a French volunteer, and a Belgian museum receptionist.

Six days later Nemmouche was enjugged
Drop the heater, Studs, or you're hist'try!
in the southern French port city of Marseille when getting off a bus from Brussels.

Nemmouche had returned from Syria where he had been fighting with Islamist Lion of Islams.

Nacer Bendrer was formally charged as an accomplice in the attack in February 2015 in Brussels, two months after his arrest near Marseille in possession of various weapons.

These included a Kalachnikov assault rifle like the one used at the Jewish museum.

Nemmouche has been linked to Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the ringleader of the November 13, 2015 Gay Paree gun and bombing attacks that killed 130 people and maimed hundreds of others.

Abaaoud died in a police shootout near the French capital days after the massacre.

The Gay Paree attacks were allegedly plotted in Brussels by the same cell that carried out the suicide kabooms in the Belgian capital’s airport and a metro train station on March 22, 2016, killing 32 people.

They're 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 the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
group grabbed credit for the Gay Paree attacks and the Brussels 2016 attacks.

Sweden's deadly problem with hand grenades
[BBC] A stark rise in incidents involving hand grenade explosions has become emblematic of the wider rise in violent crime in Swedish cities, report James Clayton and Caitlin Hanrahan for BBC Newsnight.

Daniel Cuevas Zuniga was cycling home from a night shift in southern Stockholm in January when he stopped to pick up an object on the path.

Police believe the 63 year old, who worked at an elderly people's home, thought the device was a toy.

But it was a hand grenade, which exploded as he touched it and killed him almost immediately.

His wife, Wanna, was riding ahead of him near Varby railway station. She was knocked to the ground by the blast.

Shrapnel marks can still be seen on a nearby lamppost.

"How could a hand grenade be on the bike path?" Wanna said later in an interview with local media.

"My view on Sweden has changed. I really wonder how such a thing could happen... I am completely traumatized."

The number of explosions caused by hand grenades has increased in Sweden in recent years. There were fewer than five in 2014 but at least 20 in 2017, and a further 39 grenades were seized by police.
So, Not Guns killing people but hand grenades. I bet you can't find them at your local sporting goods store. I wonder if the NRA is keying on this. I could see the ads. The DemoRats want to take your guns so that leftists and jihadists with hand grenades can freely kill scores of citizens with grenades mailed home from war zones.
Not just grenades killing people, but grenades deployed by the immigrant gangs that have been taking over more and more Scandinavian communities, not just Sweden’s. Oddly enough, the BBC reporters plagiarized several chunks of their report from a March 3rd report in the New York Times, then expanded with their own work. Worth reading the whole thing.

Southeast Asia
Malaysian police search for four fugitive ISIS insurgents
[The Nation] Malaysian police are hunting for four insurgents suspected of planning attacks on non-Muslim places of worship, as well as to kidnap and murder policemen.

Malaysia's police chief Mohamad Fuzi Harun said in a statement that six militants were arrested between Feb 27 and March 1. But four others are still on the run. Police said the men were dangerous and "capable of launching attacks that could pose a threat to national security".

Two of the suspects listed were named as Muhamad Faizal Muhamad Hanafi and Muhamad Hanafi Yah, both from Kelantan state. A third suspect is Nor Farkhan Mohd Isa, whose address was given as being in Skudai, southern Johor. The fourth suspect is Awae Wae-Eya, a Thai national living in Narathiwat province.

Intelligence sources believe Awae is the group's leader, based on interrogation of the men arrested, and that he is trying to establish an ISIS cell in southern Thailand.

The plot was uncovered after Malaysian counter-terror police, with assistance by their Singaporean counterparts, detained the rebels in a series of raids. The order to kidnap and kill policemen is thought to be the first of its kind.

The six men nabbed earlier included a technician who was initially believed to have masterminded the plans to attack places of worship in Johor Baru. The second suspect was the cell's adviser and responsible for keeping the cell and its plans secret.

Also picked up during the raids was a man who was responsible for acquiring firearms from a neighboring country and scouting for non-Muslim houses of worship to target. Another suspect had been ordered to kidnap and kill policemen.

An Abu Sayyaf militant in the Philippines was also nabbed during the police crackdown in Sabah on March 15. The man is said to be a trusted lieutenant to Furuji Indama, the group's leader based in Basilan. Thought to have connections to Malaysian militant Mahmud Ahmad, he is also wanted by Philippines authorities for involvement in a kidnap-for-ransom syndicate. He is an expert in making improvised explosive devices and had planned to attack several locations in Sabah.funding and refuge in South-east Asia.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Syrian rebels hand over arms, leave another town near Douma
[IsraelTimes] Syrian state media say hundreds of rebels fighters in a town northeast of Damascus have handed in their weapons and started to leave under an evacuation deal.

Under the agreement, the rebels are allowed to move with their families to opposition-held areas in the country’s north, effectively surrendering their turf to Syrian government forces.

The state SANA news agency says the Army of Islam fighters and their families are leaving the town of Dumayr on Thursday. The report says 1,500 rebels and 3,500 of their next of kin are to leave Dumayr for the town of Jarablus, near the Ottoman Turkish border.

Dumayr is in the Qalamoun mountains, near the eastern Ghouta region which came under full government control last week after a weeks-long offensive and an alleged chemical weapons attack.

Iraqi warplanes strike ISIS positions in Syria
[Iraq Sun] Citing murderous Moslem threat across the border, Iraqi warplanes carried out Arclight airstrikes on Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more.

positions in Syria.

An Iraqi military front man announced the airstrikes on Thursday and said that the strikes were conducted with the coordination of the Syrian government in Damascus.

The strikes, carried out by Iraqi F-16 warplanes, came a week after Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said his country would defend itself from murderous Moslem threats across the border.

The Iraqi military posted on Twitter, "Based on the orders from Abadi, the commander in chief, our air forces by using F-16 war planes bombarded ISIS terrorists' positions in Syria on the border with Iraq on Thursday."

Then, it said in an official statement, "Carrying out air strikes on ISIS gangs in Syrian territories is because of the dangers posed by said gangs to Iraqi territories and is proof of the improved capabilities of our armed forces."

Iraqi Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasool said the airstrikes were carried out in coordination with the Syrian government and were launched from within Iraqi borders.

On Thursday, Iraq's Air Force also released a video of an F-16 fighter jet taxiing on what appears to be a military air base.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi confirmed that he gave the orders on Thursday and tweeted a brief statement saying, "Our heroic air force carried out on Thursday in Syria near [the] Iraqi border deadly air strikes against ISIS's (ISIS) terrorist gangs."

Surprise Daesh attack kills 25 regime forces in east Syria
[Gulf News] ISIS launched a surprise attack near a town in eastern Syria they had lost six months ago, killing at least 25 regime forces, a monitor said Thursday.

At least 13 ISIS snuffies were also killed in the attack which was carried out near Mayadeen on Wednesday afternoon, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said.

Mayadeen lies in the eastern province of Deir Al Zor on the western bank of the Euphrates River and is flanked by the vast Badia desert to its west and south.

A military source on Thursday however denied any attack against positions of the Syrian army along the western bank of the Euphrates.

But intermittent bombardment on army positions from its eastern bank had prompted retaliation with suitable weapons, the source said.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, control most of the territory to the east of the Euphrates, where a few villages are still under ISIS control.

Observatory director Rami Abdul Rahman said Thursday morning "ISIS attempts to advance in the direction of the town of Mayadeen are ongoing" from the Badia desert.

He said it was the "largest ISIS attack since they were expelled from the town" by regime forces and their allies in October 2017.
