#1  Milwaukee Police Capt. Mark Stanmeyer said the man killed by police had a “lengthy arrest record,” but didn’t report any details of the past crimes. Investigators said the man’s gun came from a burglary in the neighboring town of Waukesha. The owner of the gun said 500 rounds of ammunition were also stolen.

“He was a nice good person, he was really respected. That’s why everyone came out. They’re angry,” YetNefataria Gordon told the Journal Sentinel.

#12  A real Charmer:
Today the Journal-Sentinel reports Sylville Smith, the man killed by police Saturday, had been charged in a shooting incident last year, though he was not convicted:

The man shot and killed by a Milwaukee police officer Saturday was charged last year in a shooting and then charged again, with trying to intimidate a witness in that same shooting, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has learned…

Smith was charged with first-degree recklessly endangering safety, a felony, on Feb. 3, 2015. Details of the shooting were not immediately clear from the documents.

While that case was pending, Smith was charged with felony witness intimidation after prosecutors said he was intimidating the victim in the first case.

The officer-involved shooting happened within blocks from the scene of a murder on Friday and a double homicide on Saturday morning.

11 Afghan soldiers, 92 militants killed in past 24 hours, MoD claims
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] At least 11 soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces and 92 Death Eaters were killed amid soaring violence across the country, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said Saturday.

According to a statement by MoD, the latest casualties to the Afghan army and the anti-government armed Death Eaters were incurred in the past 24 hours in various provinces of the country.

The statement further added that the operations were conducted with the support of the artillery unitys of the Afghan army and the Afghan Air Force.

At least 40 of the Death Eaters were killed in Khoshamand Zerok and Khairkot districts of Paktiak province and at least 30 others including 9 Death Eaters were killed in Samkanai and Janikhel districts of Paktia province, MoD said.

MoD in its statement also added that 17 Death Eaters were killed during a separate operation in Dahana-e-Ghori district of Baghlan and 5 more Death Eaters were killed in separate operations conducted in Laghman and Faryab provinces.

At least 11 soldiers of the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces also bit the dust during the same operations, MoD said, although there are no reports regarding the casualties of the security personnel belonging to other security institutions, including the Afghan National Police (ANP) forces.

The anti-government armed krazed killer groups including the Taliban hard boyz have not commented regarding the reports so far.

US-trained commandos capture Shaboob bomb expert in Galkayo
US-trained Somali commandos, Danab (Lightning), have captured five Al Shabaab militants including a Sudanese explosive expert in central Galkayo city, Garowe Online reports.

Somali security officials have confirmed the operation carried out by Danab, five days after Puntland refuted reports disclosing commando troopers on ant-terrorism mission. On August 6, Galkayo Airport General Manager, Saed Abdirahman Yusuf (Dhagaweyne), said, they were firmly in charge of airport security.

Somali National Army (SNA) Commander, Ali Bashe Mohamed, told state-run station, Radio Mogadishu that the five were nabbed in anti-terror raid. He did not specify where the five were captured, but insisted that they were tipped off on the cell.

It is yet unclear where the seized Al Shabaab members are being held.
Ice Station Zebra?
Trained by the US, the counter-terrorism force, Danab largely operates in central and southern Somalia.

Shaboob #3 killed in Hiran attack
Pro-government militias have killed senior Al Shabaab official in central Hiran region according to Somalia’s federal government.

Al Shabaab operations head in Hiran region Mohamed Al Dhegaweyne was targeted during clashes between villagers and Al Shabaab militants in Luuq Jeelow, 20km west of Beledweyne. Deputy Governor of Hiran region Mohamed Ibrahim Abdullahi has confirmed the death of the senior militant to the media on Saturday.

At least three other Al Shabaab fighters—believed to be his bodyguards—were also reported dead in ensuing gun-battle.

Somali National Army (SNA) commander Gen. Omar Adan Hassan told state-run station, Radio Mogadishu that government troops will assist locals in securing their vicinities.

Africa North
Terror suspects being rounded up in Benghazi
Benghazi, 13 August 2016:

Security forces in Benghazi appear to have begun to arrest people suspected of terrorist connections. Police reported that they had detained one man whose phone was said to contain the phone numbers of “extremists in Tripoli”.

It is unclear how many other arrests have been made so far nor whether the operation is intelligence-led. A group of the city’s police is being sent to Cyprus to train in electronic surveillance.

On Friday Benghazi council was ousted and a city military commander appointed by Major General Abdul Razzaq Al-Nazhuri, since June the military governor of northern Cyrenaica.

There have long been concerns that when IS and Ansar Al-Sharia terrorists, along with their allies in the Benghazi Revolutionaries’ Shoura Council, are finally defeated in Gwarsha, Ganfouda and their Sabri and Souk Al-Hut outposts, the Islamists will revert to a more tradition terror campaign, using sleeper cells and hermetically-sealed networks.

If a general campaign is indeed being mounted against suspected terrorist sympathisers, it will add to the concern that the east of the country is becoming increasingly militarised.

Meanwhile the military advance against the terrorists appears stalled. IS claimed today that it had hit an army assembly point in Gwarsha with artillery and heavy-machine gun fire. They said that their counter attack had forced the soldiers to withdraw. It was not possible to obtain a comment on the firefight from the army.

The army moves into Zuetina
Benghazi, 13 August 2016:

The army’s 153 Infantry Brigade today moved into Zuetina but stopped short of entering the oil terminal which is controlled by the Petroleum Facilities Guard headed by Ibrahim Jadhran.

A long four-lane-wide convoy of assorted military and civilian vehicles moved slowly into the town. Footage posted by the army showed flag-waving locals apparently giving the soldiers an enthusiastic welcome.

There were no reports of any response from PFG forces in the terminal.

On Thursday, the French, German, Italian, Spanish, UK and US governments issued a joint warning that they were increasingly concerned at the rising tensions at Zuetina.

They called on all parties to refrain from hostilities and avoid any action that could damage or disrupt the country’s energy infrastructure. They also insisted that Zuetina, along with all other export terminals, should be handed over to the Government of National Accord.

In a move that surprised those who thought he was dedicated to an autonomous Cyrenaica, the former federalist Jadhran this March announced his support for the GNA. His guards shut the terminal last November and apparently repelled a seaborne attack by IS in January.

The export terminal is a key source of employment in the town. There has long been tension between locals and the PFG and other outsiders who have often mounted protests that stopped tankers from loading. Three years ago, townspeople became so fed up with yet another disruption that they stormed the port and forced it to resume operations.

Sirte radio station retaken from IS
KIIL, where the hits used to happen
Tripoli, 13 August 2016:

An IS judge was among the dead found when Bunyan Marsous forces overran the Ouagadougou Centre, as today the radio station was also seized from the terrorists who are being squeezed into a largely residential area in the north of the town bordering Sirte’s sea shore.

The body of the judge, named by Lana as Abu-Mohamed Al-Ferjani was found with other terrorists near the centre on Thursday. BM media have posted pictures of the interior of the Ouagadougou which show the wreckage caused by the fighting, as well as the badly damaged Ibn Sina hospital which the terrorists seized in February 2015.

Triumphant fighters are show holding up captured IS banners while, despite the continued presence of snipers, the Libyan flag has been hoisted on make-shift flagpoles and from building high points.

Sirte’s radio station was one of the first locations to be taken over by IS in February last year and was used to broadcast IS propaganda. In the fighting in June the station briefly went off the air for a reason unknown but returned after a week.

There are unconfirmed reports that a cache of documents, only partly burnt, was discovered in the centre, giving details of IS personnel and also of planned terror operations in Italy.

Despite their evidently desperate military position, IS social media continues to put out positive messages. Perhaps in a deliberate echo of a Bunyan Marsous report last month on how civilian volunteers are keeping fighters fed on the front line, IS today posted pictures of the food that had been prepared for their men.

The terrorists do not appear to be running out of ammunition, nor food, even though the BM commanders maintain that they are completely surrounded. Support from the sea, which would seem to have kept terrorists in Benghazi in the field, is said to be impossible in Sirte. The Miratans have converted one of their Freezone port tugs into a gunboat. Last month a coastguard commander said there were other vessels patrolling off the coast to stop terrorists from escaping or receiving supplies and reinforcements.

Among the more than 30 air strikes launched by US warplanes, the targets reportedly destroyed included a tank, a truck bomb and various other vehicles and defensive positions. There has been no report of any significant ammunition dump being hit.

Saudi army foils massive Houthis infiltration
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Joint Saudi forces foiled an infiltration attempt on Saturday carried out by the 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 near the Najran district in the kingdom, according to security sources.

Saudi forces managed to kill dozens of Houthi and deposed Ali Abdulla Salah militia elements, as well as destroying five of their military vehicles.

...back at the argument, Livia grabbed for Jane's hair to make her point. Jane elbowed her in the face in rebuttal...
five residents were maimed by two shells fired from inside Yemeni territory in the Samtah border province, in Jazan region on Saturday afternoon.

The residents, four Yemenis and an Egyptian were in their house when the attack took place.

Samtah has occasionally been a target of shelling from Yemeni territories.

Saudi military carried out heavy bombardments of Houthi militia positions and hideouts on Friday off a village close to the border in Jazan, while Apache helicopters were conducting patrols along the border in Jazan region.

Yatris among 18 injured in grenade attack at Poonch
[Daily Excelsior] Eighteen persons including nine yatris of Shri Budha Amarnath Ji pilgrimage were maimed, six of them seriously, when a suspected myrmidon lobbed grenade at Bagh Deodi near Akhara Mandir in the heart of Poonch town tonight, where the yatris had just entered for night halt after reaching there from Jammu, at about 8 pm tonight.

"The grenade was directly targeted at Budha Amarnath Ji pilgrims at Bagh Deodi near Akhara temple in Poonch town, where 1246 pilgrims had reached around 8 pm tonight from Jammu and other places and had just few minutes before entered the premises for night halt before leaving for Budha Amarnath Ji shrine tomorrow morning,’’ police sources said.

The pilgrims had boarded off from buses at Government Degree College Ground in Poonch, about 50 meters short of Bagh Deodi, and trekked to the night shelter set up for them by the administration when a myrmidon threw a grenade targeting the pilgrims and fled away.

The grenade went kaboom! with a bang at around 8 pm causing injuries to 18 people including nine pilgrims, who were entering Bagh Deodi, an ASI and rest local people.

SSP Poonch Jatinder Singh Johar, Deputy Commissioner Poonch, Haroon Malik, DySP Sagra Singh Slathia, DySP Mohan Lal and SHO Inspector Jatinder Raina and other officials from civil and police administration reached the spot immediately and started rescue operation. Police and para-military personnel joined by the locals shifted the injured to District Hospital, Poonch from where six injured were referred to Rajouri by road and then were in the process of being further referred to Jammu for specialized treatment in the Government Medical College (GMC), Jammu in view of their serious condition when the reports last came in.

Condition of a woman, whose identity hasn’t been established so far but she hailed from Jammu, was stated to be critical.

Police and para-military personnel carried out searches in the area but the myrmidon responsible for the grenade attack remained untraced. The grenade had fallen on the stairs of Bagh Deodi. A TATA Sumo, which was returning towards Bus Stand was damaged in the blast.

Sources said TATA Sumo contained impact of the grenade, which first hit the vehicle before landing at Bagh Deodi.

The Budha Amarnath Ji yatra, which had started on August 9, was due to culminate on August 18 along with Shri Amarnath Ji yatra coinciding with the pious occasion of Shravan Purnima and Raksha Bandhan.

Sources said the Yatra would proceed as per schedule to Shri Budha Amarnath Ji shrine tomorrow morning from Bagh Deodi, which serves as base camp and night halting point for the pilgrims. The yatra from Jammu and other places will also proceed to Poonch tomorrow.

Sources said a total of 1246 pilgrims had today reached Poonch base camp for Shri Budha Amarnath Ji yatra including 421 from Jammu and 825 from other places including enroute Jammu-Poonch.

100 ISIS Terrorists Trapped in Ramadi Underground Tunnels
[Iraq Sun] According to a report by Mizan, as translated by IFP, before the terrorists' hideout was discovered, fierce festivities broke out between Iraq's security forces and the murderous Moslems who were lurking in the tunnels.

Most of the murderous Moslems were foreigners and a few of them were Arab.

Earlier last weekend, Major General Ismail al-Mahlawi, the commander of Anbar Operations Command, told al-Sumaria that security personnel had fully regained control over Khalidiya Island, which lies nearly 90 kilometres (55 miles) west of the capital, Baghdad.

He said tens of bad boyz were potted in the liberation operation.

Lieutenant General Raed Shaker Jawdat, the Federal Police Forces' commander, separately said that Iraqi security forces had killed nearly 200 ISIS murderous Moslems and disarmed 250 bombs in the operation to free the Khalidiya Island.

ISIS Member Beheads His Father in Mosul
[Iraq Sun] Sharing the details, the source said, "One ISIS member on Thursday [August 11] evening beheaded his father at Ghazlani region in western Nineveh. The attack was made as the dear departed approved the exodus of his family from Agrarian Reform neighbourhood to Makhmour district in south of djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
. "
"The killer collected a number of his close associates and members of the organization and filmed the entire execution," further added the source seeking anonymity, as reported by Iraqi News and covered by Kayhan.

Earlier in June, two ISIS-linked Saudi brothers had also beheaded their mother and maimed their brother and father. Saudi social media users argued at the time that the twins believed their parents were apostates for opposing ISIS (also known as ISIS or ISIS)

Iraq: Isis executes five men for smuggling people into ‘lands of disbelief’
[ALMASDARNEWS] Members of the 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. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(Isis/ISIS) terror group have killed five men accused of smuggling people out from the territories controlled by the group. Furat Province, a division of Isis in western Iraq, killed the men for allegedly smuggling people from IS-held territory into "lands of disbelief", the SITE Intelligence Group said.

Isis has been fighting against a military offensive that has driven bully boyz out from most of the territories they previously controlled and has resulted in the arrest of hundreds of holy warriors.

Iraqi forces recaptured the city of Fallujah,
... the City of Mosques, which might have somthing to do with why it's not called Center of Prosperity or a really nice place to raise your kids...
an Isis stronghold, in June.

The military fight has also prompted hundreds of ISIS snuffies to flee the city amid reports they were disguising themselves as refugees as they tried to leave.

Iraqi forces have been screening men and teenage boys leaving Fallujah, while the Iraqi military confirmed some of the snuffies were also posing as female refugees to get out of Fallujah.

Malaysia arrests ISIS suspects for bar grenade attack
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Malaysian police have jugged
Drop the rosco, Muggsy, or you're one with the ages!
nine Lion of Islams, including two suspected of carrying out a grenade attack, claimed by ISIS, at a nightspot on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur in June, the country’s police chief said on Saturday.

A known Malaysian ISIS fighter in Syria, Muhammad Wanndy Muhammad Jedi, had said in a posting on his Facebook page that the group had carried out the June 28 attack on a bar in the Puchong neighborhood that maimed eight people.

If the claim was genuine it would have been the first attack by ISIS on Malaysian soil.

Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar said in a statement the two men who carried out the attack had been caught in the northeastern state of Kelantan, where they had been awaiting instructions from Wanndy to carry out further attacks.

"Following on from their arrest, police managed to seize a grenade, and it was suspected it would have been used in a planned attack," Khalid said.

He said two other people had been arrested for helping to hide the suspects.

Police had also tracked down a suspected ISIS member, whose cell had received orders from Wanndy, and had threatened attacks on the police headquarters in Kuala Lumpur and on government buildings in the country’s administrative capital of Putrajaya, Khalid said.Malaysia arrests ISIS suspects for bar grenade attack

Others arrested included a 17-year-old in the eastern state of Sabah, on the island of Borneo, who was believed to have been planning a ’lone wolf’ attack on non-Moslems after communicating with another Malaysian ISIS member in Syria.

three foreigners, who were ex-military, were arrested in Kuala Lumpur for allegedly using the country as a transit point to secure fake travel documents and plan an attack on a Middle East nation, Khalid said.

Authorities in Moslem-majority Malaysia have been on high alert since IS-linked gunnies carried out an armed attack in the capital of neighboring Indonesia in January.

Police said last week 230 people, including 200 Malaysians, have been arrested since 2013 for involvement in Lion of Islam activities.

In June, ISIS released a video of its fighters from Southeast Asia calling on its supporters to unify under one umbrella group and launch attacks in the region.

Southern militants or anti-junta forces behind Thai bombings?
[Straits Times] Though no one has claimed responsibility for a series of bombings in the past two days in southern Thailand, police chief Chakthip Chaijinda said the bombs found were similar to those used by separatist insurgents in the southern border districts. But General Chakthip said it was too soon to draw a clear conclusion.

The bombs that went off in Phuket, Surat Thani, Phang Nga, Prachuap Khiri Khan and Trang provinces were hidden in public places and detonated by mobile phones. At the same time, firebombs were used in arson attacks in Krabi and Nakhon Si Thammarat provinces.

Security analyst Anthony Davis of IHS Jane's was convinced of a southern separatist link. While the conflict has largely been confined to Narathiwat, Pattani and Yala provinces, in the"deep south", there are signs that the militants are reaching beyond the region.

Last year, seven people were wounded when a car bomb went off in the basement of a mall on Samui Island, a tourist haven. Fires were reportedly started at the same time as the blast. Two years before that, police on the resort island of Phuket found and defused an improvised explosive device in a pick-up truck.

Thailand held a referendum on Sunday on a draft Constitution that institutionalizes military oversight over the future elected government. The draft charter was endorsed by over 60% of valid voters nationwide - but rejected in the deep south. The period leading up to the plebiscite was marked by an upsurge of insurgent bomb attacks.

Chulalongkorn University political analyst Thitinan Pongsudhirak, however, thinks it unlikely that the southern militants were behind the attacks. He wrote, "If they had wanted to send a message to the junta, the insurgents would more likely have attacked Bangkok, or major cities such as Chiang Mai or Phuket city. Domestic political unrest, a major source of small-scale bomb blasts over the past decade, since the ousting of the former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra (in 2006), is therefore the most likely explanation."

Since the coup, Thailand has been thrown into political turmoil, with demonstrations by both sides of the political dispute "marred by periodic gunshots and small explosions". "The anti-junta forces who lost out in the referendum have an incentive to show bold defiance and lay down a challenge against the regime," Thitinan wrote.

Manbij residents smoke and shave to celebrate freedom from ISIS
[Iraq Sun] The residents of Manbij, a stronghold of the Islamic state (ISIS) holy warrior group, were freed after U.S. backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) wrested control over the area.

Nasser Haj Mansour of SDF said that Manbij "is under full control," adding that combing operations were on to search any remaining ISIS holy warriors in the town.

Reports stated that as the ISIS holy warriors were retreating from Manbij, they had seized 2000 citizens to be used as shields against the ongoing Arclight airstrikes. With SDF capturing the town, the ISIS freed some of the citizens while others managed to escape themselves.

When the Islamic holy warriors were finally pushed out, the city erupted into spontaneous celebrations. People came pouring out on the streets, men and women danced, sobbed, some men shaved their beards, a woman burnt a niqab and another smoked a cigarette.

Video footages also showed citizens cursing the Islamic state and crying out in disbelief that the ISIS had been overpowered.

U.S. backed Kurdish Syrian forces had launched an attack on Manbij in May but were only able to capture the city after 73 days of festivities with the holy warriors.

With Manbij under control, the SDF is looking to capture Raqqa, the self-proclaimed capital of the ISIS.

Reclaiming Manbij is being dubbed as a major victory in the fight against ISIS as the city was its link with the rest of the world, additionally, it was the point through which the group recruited foreign soldiers and traded in arms.

ISIS ‘on the ropes’ in northern Syria: Pentagon
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Coalition-supported local forces fighting ISIS in northern Syria have recaptured large areas around the city of Manbij and put the extremists “on the ropes,” a Pentagon official said Friday.

Since the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) began an operation to capture Manbij on May 21, they have wrested control of more than 1,000 square kilometers (385 square miles) of territory from ISIS.

Manbij is a key town in the anti-ISIS struggle because the extremists were using it as a waypoint between the Turkish border and Raqqa, the extremists’ de facto capital.

SDF forces, backed by US-led coalition air power, have now retaken much of Manbij, though pockets of resistance remain in the city’s north.

“Although fighting in Manbij continues, ISIS is clearly on the ropes. It has lost the center of Manbij, it has lost control of Manbij,” Pentagon deputy press secretary Gordon Trowbridge said.

ISIS fighters fleeing the city on Friday seized around 2,000 civilians to use as “human shields,” the SDF and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

Trowbridge said US officials were aware of the reports but unable to confirm them.

ISIS “has consistently shown a willingness to put innocent lives at risk, in blatant violation not only of the laws of armed conflict but of common human decency,” he said.

Since fighting for Manbij began, US-led strikes have taken out more than 50 of ISIS’s heavy weapons and destroyed more than 600 fortified fighting positions, Trowbridge said.

But the job of clearing the city will be complicated after the extremists left behind hundreds of mines and booby traps, he added.

More than 2,000 Isis hostages freed from Manbij
The Islamic State stronghold of Manbij, in northern Syria, has fallen to allied Arab and Kurdish fighters, who freed more than 2,000 hostages held by the terrorist group. A spokesman for the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces said they had taken over the city after the last Isis militants fled on Friday. According to the SDF and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the freed hostages had been used as “human shields”.

Sharfan Darwish, of the SDF-allied Manbij military council, told Reuters: “The city is now fully under our control but we are undertaking sweeping operations.”

The Pentagon deputy press secretary Gordon Trowbridge said: “Although fighting in Manbij continues, ISIL is clearly on the ropes. It has lost the centre of Manbij, it has lost control of Manbij.”

The Arab-Kurdish alliance had expelled most of the Isis fighters from Manbij by last week but dozens continued to put up a tough resistance until Friday.

Veteran Syrian Army units stationed on the fringes of the Palmyra Silos thwarted the attack after a few hours of intense firefights killing the aforementioned emir along with 60 of his fighters. Russian helicopters played a significant role in foiling the disastrous offensive.

Reportedly, the Syrian Army grouping in Palmyra was massing in preparation for a huge offensive on Deir El Zor. However,

Also in Deir Ezzor City, the Russian and Syrian air forces conducted joint Arclight airstrikes that targeted the Islamic State’s positions inside the Al-Rashidiyah District.

A military source told Al-Masdar News on Friday night that the Syrian and Russian Arclight airstrikes destroyed a dozen vehicles that belonged to the Islamic State, including a handful of trucks mounted with anti-aircraft machine guns.

The Russian Air Force would conclude the day by striking an Islamic State gathering at Ayyash village in northern Deir Ezzor; this attack forced the aforementioned terrorist group to retreat towards safety in order to avoid accumulating more casualties.
