Taliban shadow district governor killed in Sar-e-Pol province
Security forces have killed a Taliban shadow district governor in northern part of the county and arrested their landmine planters in southeast.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Interior, Mawlawi Baz Mohammad was the so-called district governor of Taliban for Sancharak District of northern Sar-e-Pol province and Mawlawi Qamar-ud-din was the group’s military commander.

“The two important fighters of Taliban were killed in a precise raid in the village of Deh Mordah of Sancharak District yesterday,” states the statement.

With their death, the security situation of Sancharak and other parts of Sar-e-Pol province would get better, the statement adds.
Military operation in Sancharak was launched on Monday after Taliban seized some villages from security forces.

Meanwhile, police have detained four landmine planters of Taliban with landmines in southeastern Paktia province.

The group planned to furnish landmines on public highway in Machalgho area of Ahmad Abad District on Monday.

Mass Grave Found in Balkh's Shortepa District
Deminers on Sunday found human remains buried in a mass grave in Taza Umid village of Shortepa district in northern Balkh province, officials confirmed.

According to them, the remains of about 13 people were found – ten of whom had turbans on when buried.

"This is the area where we work. We were on our way to Mazar-e-Sharif when a resident informed us about the existence of a mass grave," Abdul Hadi, a deminer said on Sunday.

However, it is unclear how the deceased died or what the circumstances were. But officials said early indications point towards them having been killed by the Taliban.

Meanwhile, the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) has expressed deep concerns over the discovery of the mass grave and called on government to ensure an investigation into the matter is carried out and those responsible are brought to justice.

"Elements who are involved in such crimes must be removed from the government structure. A documentary needs to be prepared about the events. We have general information about such things, but we face a lack of information which is authentic," head of AIHRC site office in Balkh, Taqi Wahidi said.

Meanwhile, the deputy head of Balkh provincial council has said that the discovery of the mass grave shows the level of violence the country has been subjected to over the past thirty years. He called on government to ensure those responsible pay for their crimes.

"Unforgivable crimes have been committed over the past three decades and the mass grave proves this fact. These crimes are unpardonable," Shujauddin Shuja, deputy head of Balkh provincial council said.

"We expect government to take effective steps in this respect to detect the perpetrators involved in such crimes," he said.

Three decades of violence and war has dominated the country and devastated Afghanistan's economy. It has also taken its toll on the infrastructure and claimed the lives of thousands of people.

HOR member grabbed in Tripoli
Tripoli, 1 December 2015:

Unidentified gunmen have seized Nabil Aoun, a member of the House of Representatives from his Tripoli home .

Fellow Representative Ayman Saif Al-Nasr said on social media this morning that Aoun, who was elected for Azziziya, was grabbed early this morning by armed men who broke into his house and bundled him off to an unknown destination.

However, it is reported that members of his family are claiming he has been taken to Mitiga.

Mitiga is the base for the Rada “Deterrence” force commanded by Abdul Raul Kara, which runs a prison there.

Like Nasr, who was elected by Janzour, Aoun has been one of the standout HoR members who have refused to take their seats in the parliament in Tobruk

Africa Subsaharan
Boko Haram Jihadists Torch 50 Homes, Kill Four People in Niger
[AnNahar] Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
activists raided a border village in Niger, killing four people and torching some 50 homes, a local official said on Monday.

Two other people were maimed in the assault on Saturday evening, said Fougou Boukar, an official from the restive Diffa region, adding that the attackers then fled to Nigeria.

"There has been enormous damage with about 50 houses burnt," he told state television
... and if you can't believe state television who can you believe?
, putting the number of assailants at about 10.

"The Boko Haram members were armed with Kalashnikovs and came across the Komadougou Yobe" river that divides Niger and Nigeria, Boukar said.

State television showed hundreds of distressed villagers, praying in memory of the victims. Some of them showed scores of empty cartridges they had gathered after the attack.

Boko Haram, the radical Sunni jihadists who want to create a hardline Islamic state in northeast Nigeria
... a particularly crimson stretch of Islam's bloody border...
, have spread their attacks to neighboring Niger, Chad and Cameroon
...a long, narrow country that fills the space between Nigeria and Chad on the northeast, CAR to the southeast. Prior to incursions by Boko Haram nothing ever happened there...
Their six-year insurgency has left at least 17,000 people dead and made more than 2.6 million homeless.

In Niger's Diffa region alone, hundreds of people have died in Boko Haram raids and suicide kabooms since February.

Last week, Boko Haram killed 18 people and injured 11 others during a raid in the village of Wogom located near the southeastern town of Bosso. Three of the victims, including the local imam, had their throats slit.

The United Nations
...an organization originally established to war on dictatorships which was promptly infiltrated by dictatorships and is now held in thrall to dictatorships...
has registered around 50 attacks and festivities between Islamist fighters and Niger troops since February.

Arabia
Dozens of Houthis killed in major offensive across border from Yemen
Dozens of Houthi fighters were killed during an assault on the border with Saudi Arabia, residents and Saudi state television said on Tuesday, in what they described as a major push to try to capture territory inside the kingdom.
Yemen wasn't big enough for them?
The Houthis have been trying to push into Saudi territory since an alliance led by Saudi Arabia intervened in Yemen's civil war in March, trying to drive back the Iran-allied group and restore exiled Yemeni President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi.
Houthi Lebensraum?
"There was an attempt, as usual, to breach the border and sneak into Saudi territory but the ... armed forces as a whole, were watching them and this attempt was thwarted," Brigadier General Ahmed Al Assiri, spokesman of the Saudi-led coalition, said in comments broadcast by Saudi state television on Tuesday.

"Those who tried to infiltrate were killed and the situation is stable, thanks be to God," he added.
Not sure I'd give thanks to Allan but I'm pleased to see it happen...
The channel said Assiri put the number of those killed at 180 Houthis and allied fighters loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

That number could not be independently verified, but local residents said dozens of Houthi fighters had been killed in what they said was a major assault by hundreds of Houthi fighters on the border. Saudi forces used helicopters as well as rockets to repel the Houthis, they said.

The Houthi-run Saba news agency said that fighters had seized three Saudi military outposts near the city of Najran, destroying several armoured vehicles, including two US-made Abrams tanks and three Bradley vehicles.
They were able to do what Saddam could never do...

group. A ministry statement said the 32-year-old man used his restaurant in the northern city of Pamplona to show and distribute IS videos and photographs. He also worked to recruit bandidos Death Eaters to travel to Syria for the group. The statement said police suspicions of the man's radicalization were raised when he recently began changing his behavior, appearance and circle of friends.

Italy, Kosovo police arrest four jihadist suspects

[Ynet] MILAN - Italian and Kosovan police have placed in durance vile

four Kosovars suspected of being part of a jihadist cell that spread Islamist propaganda and made threats against Pope Francis, justice officials said on Tuesday. The four, three of whom were arrested in Italia and one in Kosovo, are all suspected of "condoning terrorism" and "inciting racial hatred", Italian police said in a statement. A police official said the four were very active on the Internet, promoting their pro-jihadist cause, but did not appear to have been involved in any specific plots.

"They were threatening the pope, celebrating the recent attacks in Gay Paree and threatening the former US ambassador to Kosovo," said Carmine Esposito, a police chief in the northern Italian city of Brescia, where the investigation was based.

Georgia arrests 4 for suspected Islamic State ties

[Ynet] TBILISI - Georgian security services have announced the arrest of four men suspected of having ties to the Islamic State group. The deputy head of the security services, Levan Izoria, said Tuesday that the four were locked away

after searches of their homes on Sunday turned up hand guns, grenades, audio and video discs and flags of the Islamic State. He said Sherlocks were now working to establish the extent of their involvement with the Lion of Islam group operating in Syria and Iraq.

The suspects are from the western Guria region near the Black Sea, home to many Muslims in the predominantly Christian former Soviet republic. Most previous arrests in Georgia for suspected IS ties and recruitment efforts have involved people from the northeastern Pankisi Gorge, the home of many ethnic Chechens.

in southern Tunisia and flown to La Belle France on November 13, the day of the Gay Paree attacks.

It is the first time French citizens have been held trying to join jihadists in Libya, where an IS affiliate group holds the city of Sirte, the hometown of the country's deposed leader Muammar Qadaffy
... who had more funny outfits than Louis XIV...
The two men, one from Lyon and the other from the southern port of Marseille, did not know each other before meeting up in Tunisia, a source said. The 20-year-old girlfriend of one of the men, a convert to Islam who authorities said had at one stage intended to join her partner in Libya, has also been charged with terrorist offenses.

Security officials in the north African country believe that the jihadists who carried out the bloody attacks on the Bardo Museum in the capital Tunis in March, and on tourist hotels in Sousse in June, were trained in Libya.

I think on days when a lot of small arrests happen, yes, Ebbang Uluque6305. On (hopefully rare) bad days, like the Paris attacks when there were frequent updates over the course of the day, we'll handle it as we have, Shipman -- a post for the beginning of events, then updates in the thread as we go along and cross-links to other articles as appropriate. And on days when only one or two things happen, each can have its own post. Thanks to our uniquely clever president, 70 post days have become common; I find dealing with that much information overwhelming if I can't organize it into fewer chunks.

France's 'chief Islamic State group recruiter' goes on trial
[FRANCE24] The trial for La Belle France's alleged top recruiter for the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi.

(IS) group started Tuesday in Gay Paree. Salim Benghalem's trial will be conducted in absentia, as the suspect is believed to be in Syria.

Six other alleged gunnies accused of being part of Benghalem's terror network will also stand trial in Gay Paree. The trial will last until December 7, 2015.

French authorities said Benghalem, 35, was the leader of the so-called Buttes-Chaumont terrorist network that included Said and Cherif Kouachi, the brothers responsible for the deadly Charlie Hebdo

terrorist attack in January. He has also been linked to Mehdi Nemmouche, the gunman suspected of opening fire at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels, killing four people in May 2014.

His wife, who left Syria with their children, has told Sherlocks that he would return to La Belle France only to carry out an attack. She has said he believed bombs were not enough, that "a series of killings is recommended."

The US State Department said in 2014 that he was an executioner for the IS group and listed him as a 'foreign terrorist fighter'.

Cannabis smoker
Benghalem's descent into extremism has shocked his friends and family.

As a young man, Benghalem reportedly went out most nights with friends to meet girls, drink alcohol and smoke cannabis.

One of his childhood friends said: "He liked to crack jokes and was fun-loving."

Benghalem spent his formative years drifting from one job to another: supermarket cashier, electrician, and supervisor in a dining hall.

His family acknowledged back in 2014 that he had travelled to Syria to pursue "an ideal of justice", but was "definitely not an executioner".

Jailed after gang killing
Benghalem life seems to have taken a turn for the worse back in 2001, when he fled La Belle France for Algeria, from where his family originates, after being accused of murder and attempted murder for a gangland fight.

He remained in contact with his family before finally returning to La Belle France in 2002, when he was tossed in the clink

The Kilis Govenor's Office said in a written statement that 11 foreign nationals were detained in the Cildiroba village in the province's Elbeyli district on Nov. 29 as they attempted to illegally cross into Syria to join ISIL.

"On Nov. 29, 2015, 11 people of non-Turkish origin who were suspected of being Daesh [Islamic State] members were captured by security forces in Cildiroba in the Elbeyli district of our province. Legal and administrative investigations have been launched against the captured suspects," the governor's office said, using an Arabic acronym to refer to ISIL.

More than 2,500 ISIL members have been captured across the country over the past three years, with 837 of them from non-Turkish origin, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

Having added ISIL to the official list of terrorist organizations in 2013, Turkish security forces have since detained 2,627 suspected ISIL members in anti-terror operations.

Explosion Near Istanbul Metro Stop Was a Bomb, Local Mayor Says
[BLOOMBERG] A pipe bomb that went off near an Istanbul metro stop injured five people on Tuesday, Atilla Aydiner, mayor of the Bayrampasa district where the blast occurred, said in an interview with AHaber television.

Bomb disposal units have been sent to the site of the kaboom, Yeni Safak newspaper reported on its website.

State-run Anadolu Agency cited Istanbul Governor Vasip Sahin as saying the cause of the blast was still unknown, and all possibilities were being investigated. One person was lightly injured, he said, contradicting reports from private news agencies including Haberturk that one person was killed.

The kaboom took place on a overpass near the Bayrampasa metro station, Yeni Safak reported, without saying how it got the information. The blast was heard as far as the central business district of Sisli and the entertainment district of Beyoglu, according to reports in local media.

Metro services throughout Istanbul were halted after the kaboom, according to the Istanbul Municipality, and roads around the area were blocked. Passengers were evacuated from a metro carriage in the area whose windows were broken by the blast, according to Yeni Safak.

Senior Arab politician gunned down in Iraq's Kirkuk
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The most senior Arab member of the Kirkuk provincial council was bumped off Tuesday in the northern Iraqi city, officials said, a killing likely to stoke tensions in the province.

Gunmen sprayed Mohammed Khalil al-Juburi's car with bullets in central Kirkuk,

the scenic provincial capital, killing him and wounding his wife, a police colonel said.

Khalid al-Mufraji, a member of the Iraqi federal parliament, also confirmed Juburi's death and the wounding of his wife.

Oil-rich Kirkuk is claimed by Iraq's three-province autonomous Kurdish region, which currently holds a large part of the province, and by the federal government in Baghdad.

Federal forces were deployed in Kirkuk until June 2014, when they abandoned their positions when faced with an offensive by the Islamic State

cell in the West Bank caught transporting explosives intended to be used in attacks on IDF soldiers.

According Paleostinian sources, PA forces found an improvised bomb, several grenades and firearms inside an emptied gas tank being transported by the group, which was based in the northern West Bank town of Tubas, Israel Radio reported.

PA forces have carried out several major arrests of Hamas, always the voice of sweet reason, and Islamic Jihad operatives in recent weeks in what is said to be an effort by PA President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
... a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial...
to curb the wave of Paleostinian terror attacks and almost-daily festivities between IDF soldiers and rioters.

Unnamed Paleostinian sources told Channel 10 that Abbas instructed the security forces to crack down on Hamas activities in the West Bank, including preventing attacks and encouraging violence, before setting out for Gay Paree earlier this week.

#1  the PA actions against Hamas and Islamic Jihad are actually done to protect Abbas from Hamas and Islamic Jihad

when it is convenient to do so, the actions can also be portrayed as general law and order

Given that Hamas has repeatedly planned to assassinate Mahmoud Abbas while overthrowing the PA, it's understandable he'd take it personally, lord garth.

Two wannabe stab attackers killed, one woman carrying knife arrested
[IsraelTimes] A Paleostinian woman was shot Tuesday morning as she tried to stab an IDF officer at a checkpoint adjacent to the Einav settlement in the northern West Bank, the army said. The officer responded with fire in her direction and she was killed. There were no injuries to IDF troops.

The attacker was later identified as Maram Ramiz Hassouna, 19, from Nablus, Paleostinian media reported.

The incident came some two hours after an attempted stabbing at the Gush Etzion Junction, just south of Jerusalem. Soldiers rubbed out a knife-wielding attacker who approached people waiting at a hitchhiking stop, the army said. One Israeli man was lightly injured by shrapnel from the bullets directed at the attacker, police and the army said. The Magen David Adom first-aid service evacuated him to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.

The attacker was later identified as Mahmoud El-Khatib, 16, from the nearby Paleostinian village of Beit Fajjar.

Several minutes after the incident at the Gush Etzion Junction, an Israeli man was stabbed in Jerusalem's Beit Yisrael neighborhood. Although the man claimed to have been stabbed by an Arab, police later dispelled the notion that it was a terror attack.

Meanwhile,
...back at the barn, Bossy had come up with a new idea, one that didn't involve kerosene...
security forces received reports of a Paleostinian woman carrying a knife at the Efrat Junction in Gush Etzion. She was tossed in the slammer
... anything you say can and will be used against you, whether you say it or not...
by soldiers who arrived at the scene.

A recent rash of Paleostinian attacks in Israel and the West Bank has killed more than 20 people since the beginning of October. Over 80 percent of the perpetrators have come from the West Bank. Some 100 Paleostinians have been killed, most of whom were targeted while they were allegedly attacking Israelis. Others were killed in festivities with Israeli security forces.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Tribal leaders ask ISIS to withdraw from Shaddadi
ISIS will get right on that...
[ARA News] QAMISHLI – Arab tribal leaders in the northeastern Syrian province of Hasakah have reportedly proposed an initiative to the radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) urging the group to withdraw “peacefully” from its last stronghold in the province, namely Shaddadi city, local sources reported on Tuesday.

The initiative aims to avoid a possible military operation on the ISIS-held city by the Kurdish-Arab alliance of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) –who were able to recapture the key town of al-Hawl and more than 210 other towns and villages in Hasakah province from the terror group over the past few weeks.

“The tribal initiative comes after the SDF has made significant progress in the southern countryside of Hasakah at the expense of Daesh, seizing al-Hawl town, which was considered a key bastion for the terror group in the region, beside many other areas,” an informed source in Shaddadi told ARA News, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

The Kurdish-Arab alliance announced last week the liberation of the al-Melebiya military base in Hasakah countryside from ISIS.

Activists reported on Tuesday that the initiative comes in order to avoid civilian casualties or the collapse of the economic infrastructure of the Shaddadi city as a result of possible devastating battles between the joint forces, backed by warplanes of the U.S.-led coalition, and the radical group.

An informed source said that ISIS extremists started evacuating some of their locations in Shaddadi and its environs.

“The group withdrew from the Hasakah Dam (also known as al-Basel Dam) and several other points in preparation for the upcoming military operation by the SDF and the US.-led coalition.”

“ISIS militants began to transfer their families along with some military equipment from Shaddadi to the province of Deir ez-Zor in eastern Syria,” the source told ARA News on the condition of anonymity.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) haven’t issued any statement concerning a possible compromise with ISIS over Shaddadi.

Gunmen kill a Sharia judge in Manbij
What? No Tea Party protests? No petitioning the government, hat in hand? Is that how we want to fight Sharia Law?
[ARA News] ERBIL – A prominent Sharia judge of the extremist group of Islamic State (ISIS) was shot dead in the ISIS-held city of Manbij in Aleppo province, northern Syria, local sources reported on Tuesday.

Speaking to ARA News in Manbij, civil rights activist Adnan al-Halabi said that a group of gunmen on Monday midnight raided the house of the judge Abu Farouq in the city of Manbij and shot him in the head.

Farouq used to administer daily activities in the ISIS-linked Sharia Court in Manbij.

“He was found dead at his home on Tuesday,” the source said.

“In the wake of the accident, the ISIS-led Islamic Police arrested more than 30 people for interrogation,” al-Halabi quoted eyewitnesses as saying.

In mid-November, a Syrian young man killed another judge from the radical group along with two of his escorts in the city of Manbij, according to local sources. After killing the ISIS judgej, the man has reportedly committed suicide by shooting himself.

“The young man has shot dead a Tunisian national, who served as a judge at the ISIS-linked Sharia Court in Manbij,” an eyewitness told ARA News on the condition of anonymity.

In the meantime, dozens of people took to the street in Manbij to protest against ISIS atrocities, but the group opened fire on the protesters, killing at least two and wounding several others. The rest of the protesters were arrested, activists told ARA News in Manbij.

Subsequent to fierce battles with the Syrian opposition forces, the hardline group has captured the city of Manbij more than a year and a half ago.
