-War on Police-
Suspect in shooting of St. Louis police officer killed in shootout
A man being sought as a suspect in the shooting of a St. Louis police officer Sunday night was shot and killed in a shootout with police early Monday.

Undercover officers had found the suspect's car abandoned at a parking garage at Laclede's Landing, police said. A woman had picked him up there and officers tracked their vehicle to the intersection of Smiley and Leola avenues in St. Louis. The suspect, about 19 years old, apparently realized he was being followed, jumped out of the car and fired a shot at the officers, striking the windshield of their pickup truck.

The suspect ran and officers pursued. He was killed in front of a house about 100 yards up the street, police said, about 12:45 a.m. The suspect's identity was not immediately released. The woman was in custody.

He was being sought for questioning in the shooting of a St. Louis police sergeant about 7:30 p.m. Sunday near Hampton and Pernod avenues. A driver had pulled up next to the sergeant's SUV and opened fire.

“He was targeted because he was a police officer,” Mayor Francis Slay said at a press conference at Barnes Jewish Hospital. “He didn’t stop anybody. He didn’t point a gun at anybody."

Police said the sergeant, 46, had been shot twice in the face and was conscious. He was in critical but stable condition and expected to live. He is a 20-year veteran of the department.

The shooting in St. Louis comes on the same day that a police officer in San Antonio was shot to death while writing a ticket. Also, a police officer in Sanibel, Fla., was shot and wounded as he conducted a traffic stop Sunday evening. And late Sunday, a police officer and a suspect were shot during a traffic stop about 10:30 p.m. in the Kansas City suburb of Gladstone, Mo. That officer is expected to recover; no information on the shooter was available.

When police arrived at the shooting scene in St. Louis, the sergeant was sitting in his SUV, his seatbelt was fastened and his gun was holstered.

“He didn’t have time to react to this threat,” Police Chief Sam Dotson said.

A source told the Post-Dispatch that the sergeant said a car had pulled up beside his SUV and the officer thought the driver was going to ask him a question. Instead, the person in the car fired at the officer. The sergeant did not get a good look at the shooter, the source said.

“The officer says he saw the muzzle flashes and felt the glass breaking in his window as the shots came through and struck him in the head,” Dotson said.

The police sergeant has two bullets lodged in his face, one near his nose, the other in his cheek, a source told the Post-Dispatch. The officer has three children and works out of the Second District.

When other police arrived at the scene, the sergeant’s SUV was in the left lane on Hampton facing south. Shattered glass from the driver’s side window could be seen on the street.

Police thought the car involved in the shooting may have been connected to a car taken in a carjacking Saturday in the Affton area, a source said. Police said the suspect in the Affton case also was being sought for questioning in a homicide Saturday in St. Louis. In that case, firefighters responding to a car fire found a man who had been shot in the head in the 500 block of West Poepping Street. Dotson said it was too early in the investigation to say whether this shooting was related to the Affton case. The car in that case was tan; the police sergeant said the car that had pulled up next to him was silver.

Police were looking for a silver vehicle that may have gone east on Pernod. They also were scouring the area near Pernod for surveillance video, Dotson said.

“Fortunately, and for the blessing of God, the officer is going to survive tonight,” Dotson said. “But he was shot twice in the head, twice in the face.”

He, too, asked for the help from the public.

“It’s not [just] a threat to our police department, it’s a threat to our community, our city,” Dotson said. “This officer was driving down the road and was ambushed by an individual who pointed a gun at him from inside of his car and shot out the police officer’s window. This just shows the dangers of policing, not only here in St. Louis but around the country.”

All officers are now patrolling two officers to a car, he said.

The site of the shooting was by St. Joan of Arc School and a half block north of the St. Louis Police Officers Association Union Hall.

San Antonio Police Officer Executed Outside of Police Station
Authorities in Texas remain on high alert after a black man driving black car is suspected of murdering a San Antonio police officer in a targeted attack.

"It's always difficult, especially in this day and age when police officers are being targeted across the country," said San Antonio Police Chief William McMAnus during a interview streamed by the police department.

The murder took place on Sunday afternoon when one of the officers, described only as a 20-year-police veteran pulled over a vehicle just outside of the police station and was writing a traffic citation.

"A person pulled up behind the patrol car in a black vehicle, got out walked up to the passenger vehicle and fired one round into the vehicle shooting the officer in the head," McManus said during the interview. "He reached in and fired a second round shooting the officer a second time."

The officer died approximately 30 minutes later.

Authorities had not been able to determine a motive, but have been able to describe the suspect as a clean shaven black man between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet in height who was wearing a gray shirt and black pants.

"This is everyone's worse nightmare," McManus said. "It has happened here in the past ... it's been a few years ... but now like Dallas, Like Baton Rouge, it has happened here."

Texas House Speaker Joe Straus (R-San Antonio) tweeted a message of support to the police department and the officer's family. "Our community grieves today for the tragic loss of one of our brave San Antonio Police officers," Speaker Straus wrote.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also tweeted a message of support. "Our condolences are with family of this slain San Antonio police officer," Governor Abbott tweeted. "Texas won't tolerate police targeting.

"Cecilia and I extend our deepest condolences to the victim's family and harshly condemn this horrific act of violence. We ask that all Texans join us in praying for the officer's loved ones as they deal with the aftermath of this unimaginable tragedy. Attacks against law enforcement officers will not be tolerated in Texas and must be met with swift justice, which is why I look forward to signing my Police Protection Act into law making targeted attacks against law enforcement a hate crime."

The San Antonio police officer is the 127th law enforcement officer to die this year in the line of duty, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page. He is the 58th officer to be killed in hostile gunfire this year.
In Central America, etc., the communist revolutionaries went after the last line of defense which was the municipal police. Now the President of the United States, his cop hater friends such as Bill Ayers, the BLM supported by Valerie Jarrett, and Islamic terrorism will go on long after Trump becomes President if nothing is done regarding these criminals in power and in post power positions.

...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi.

Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group was killed in a US dronezap in eastern Nangarhar
The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country..
province of Afghanistan.

The provincial police commandment said the top ISIS leader Mullah Bozorg was killed along with his 7 fighters in the dronezap.

The security officials further added that the Arclight airstrike was carried out late on Friday in Kot district, targeting the holy warriors in Lagharjoi area.

According to the officials, several weapons, ammunition, and explosives belonging to the loyalists of the terror group were also destroyed in the raid.

The loyalists o the terror group have not commented regarding the report so far.

Both the Afghan and US forces conducted regular strikes against the loyalists of the terror group in this province.

The increased raids, usually involving dronezaps, by the US forces followed a broader role granted by the B.O. regime earlier this year.

The broader role was granted amid concerns that the loyalists of the terror group are attempting to expand foothold in the country and turn the eastern Nangarhar province into a regional operational hub for its fighters.

The deputy house speaker in the Afghan parliament, Haji Zahir Qadir, earlier warned that the loyalists of the terror group will become successful in establishing the Khurasan Caliphate if they managed to take control of Tora Bora mountainous terrain located close to Pacher Agam district.

Afghanistan accuses Iran of supporting Taliban
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Afghanistan security forces have formally complained of Iran logistically and militarily supporting the myrmidon activities of the Afghan Taliban group.

An Afghan official told Kabul
...the capital of Afghanistan. Home to continuous fighting from 1992 to 1996 between the forces of would-be strongman and Pak ISI/Jamaat-e-Islami sock puppet Gulbuddin Hekmayar and the Northern Alliance, a period which won Hek the title Most Evil Man in the World and didn't do much for the reputations of the Northern Alliance guys either....
Television that Iran supports the myrmidon group by hosting training exercises inside the country.

A former foreign ministry official told German media outlet Deutsche Welle: "This is the first time that Iran has confessed to supporting the Taliban. In the past, they always blamed Pakistain for this."

Late in October, Al Arabiya English reported on how one Afghan Taliban leader revealed details of his group’s relations with Iran.

"The movement is trying to benefit from all legitimate means to reach a regional agreement as part of the war against the American invasion; therefore, the Imara holds ongoing networks with a large number of regional and neighboring states," he said at the time.

He said to the London-based Asharq al-Awsat in an email 19 months ago, that the movement had received drone planes from Iran, which help film suicidal operations.

Kenya Police Kill Shaboobs at Somali Border
A Kenyan official says police officers killed four suspected extremists at the Somali border, a region hard-hit by recent attacks by the Somali extremist group al-Shabab.

North Eastern Regional Coordinator Mohamud Saleh said Sunday that police killed the men while ambushing a group of about 20 suspected members of a cell of al-Shabab militants on Saturday. Saleh says the group allegedly was planning an attack on a police station. He says police recovered four rifles and Somali army military jackets.

Al-Shabab, the al-Qaeda affiliate in East Africa, has vowed retribution on Kenya for its troop presence in Somalia.

Militias shoot it out over bank branch protection
[Libya Herald] Rival militias have fought each other in 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...
’s Hay Andalous in a dispute over who should be guarded the local branch of the National Commercial Bank. The frontages of the bank and neighbouring stores were damaged but there were no reports of any injuries.

It is understood that a militia calling itself "The Rapid Intervention Force" had for some time taken upon itself the protection of this NCB branch. Their control was challenged by a Misratan group who locals said is headed by two individuals known as "Muza" (Goat) and "Asfur" (Sparrow). It is unclear which of these gangs is now protecting the bank branch.

Earlier this month, a similar dispute in Seyahia, thought to be between the same groups, left five people dead outside a black market money changers which was torched.

Since the Revolution banks have become regular targets for gangs. In August the Central Bank said that beginning in 2012, there had been 56 attacks on banks. These ranged from armed robbery, murders, staff kidnapping, armed threats, destruction of bank property, armed blockades as well as attacks on vehicles moving money to and from branches.

Wife of Mokhtar Belmokhtar captured in Cyrenaica
[Libya Herald] The wife of Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the Algerian-born head of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), is reported to have been tracked down and locked away
Keep yer hands where we can see 'em, if yez please!
near the desert town of Mechili, some 100 kilometres south of Beida. She and another Tunisian woman, together with their driver, were caught heading towards Jufra, south of Sirte, according to the Libyan news agency LANA.

It quotes the front man of the Beida government’s anti-terrorism and subversion directorate, Sami al-Matrih, saying that the women were ambushed following a tip-off.

It is being suggested that they were on their way to meet Belmokhtar in southern Libya. There is no other confirmation of the report, however.

A number of reports claim that Belmokhtar was the prime target of the air raid on Gurdah al-Shatti six days ago in which a number of AQIM fighters were said to have been killed.

Although the anti-terrorism directorate has said that the one of the two Tunisian women arrested is Belmokhtar’s wife, it has not named her.

It was not previously recorded known that he had a Tunisian wife. He is known to have had four but they were supposedly all from Mali.

Belmokhtar has used southern Libya as a base on numerous occasions. His notorious attack on the January 2013 seizure of the In Amenas gas facility in Algeria in which 40 people died, almost all foreigners, is believed to have been organised from Libya.

Moroccan Police Arrest Al-Qaeda Extremist in Azrou
[MOROCCOWORLDNEWS] The National Brigade of Judicial Police (BNPJ) have recently tossed in the clink

...formerly al-Nusra, the current false nose and mustache of al-Qaeda in the Levant...
", formerly known as the "Al-Nusra Front".

The interrogation with the suspect, a computer engineer, showed that he used his knowledge in this field to disseminate the turban ideas of the "Al-Qaeda", through the setting up of applications and electronic programs to serve the agenda of the supporters of this terrorist organization, said Saturday a statement by the Interior ministry.

The investigation also revealed the alleged involvement of the suspect in piracy of bank accounts of persons abroad, which allowed him to seize large sums of money.

He will be brought to justice pending the completion of the investigation led under the supervision of the competent public prosecutor’s office.

Spanish police arrest Moroccan ISIS 'recruiters'
Spanish police arrested two Moroccans suspected of forming part of the Islamic State (ISIS) group's propaganda and recruitment network. The two were detained in Madrid and Roda de Ter in the northeastern region of Catalonia, and the interior ministry said they had joined the group voluntarily "and acted as individual terrorist cells, decentralised and pre-activated for the commission of terrorist acts in Spain."

They were "focused on recruiting young Muslims with the ultimate aim of forming an 'army of followers' invisible to police control," it added. A police spokesman, however, was not able to say whether they had actually recruited anyone.

They also "did work of propaganda and extolling of Daesh's military victories and gains, all of which was presented in an attractive visual format to gain the largest possible amount of followers," the ministry said, using an Arabic acronym for IS.

According to police, they were quickly radicalised, to the point that "they offered themselves up to Daesh as 'martyrs', completely available to act at any time, place and in any situation."

Police in Spain have long focused on prevention -- including nipping propaganda in the bud -- in its strategy to fight jihadism, with the adoption in 2015 of a law allowing authorities to detain people who merely consult jihadist websites. According to the ministry, 163 alleged jihadists have been detained since 2015, when Spain increased its terror alert to four out of five.

But unlike France or Belgium, the country is less exposed to the return of nationals who went to fight abroad and plan to commit extremist acts on home soil. Only around 200 Spaniards are estimated to have gone abroad to fight, compared to thousands from nearby France and Belgium.

Yes, Trump Can Screen Visitors From Terror Hotbeds Immediately
[PJ] PJ Media's own J. Christian Adams was on Megyn Kelly's show to discuss the possibility of Trump immediately enhancing the screening of visitors arriving from hotbeds of terror.

Foreigners are not granted the same constitutional rights as American citizens -- an obvious point, as no nation on Earth grants foreigners all of the same protections as residents.

As Adams explains, the president-elect could easily sign enhanced screening of visitors from certain areas into law, and that it would be fully constitutional.

Megyn Kelly seemed horrified -- but Adams explains that this measure is one that can keep Americans safe.

23 ISIS militants killed in airstrikes west of Anbar

Anbar – (IraqiNews.com) US-led international coalition air forces killed 23 Islamic State fighters west of al-Anbar province, an Iraqi army official said on Sunday.

The airstrikes were targeting two ISIS havens at the towns of Anah and Rawa, according to Qassem al-Mohammadi, head of al-Jazeera Operations.

Security forces and popular militias have recently concluded preparations to liberate both towns from Islamic State militants.

Iraqi forces, assisted by popular militias and international air forces, have been engaged in a more decisive battle in Mosul, ISIS’s last bastion in Iraq.

Salahuddin officials deport a complete neighborhood for collusion with ISIS

Salahuddin – (IraqiNews.com) Officials at Salahuddin governorate decided Saturday to deport the residents of a whole district to another location for colluding with the Islamic State and hiding the dead bodies of its militants.

Security leaderships decided to deport the residents of al-Askari district under tight security measures for their collusion with the militant group, said Ali al-Dawdah, head of al-Sharqat precinct.

“There are ISIS accomplices in the neighborhood…the district’s residents are part of the group’s accommodators,” said Dawdah. “A group of ISIS militants had killed five members of al-Hashed al-Shaabi…security forces killed five of those, two of them in the Askari district, but people hid their dead bodies and we could not find them.”

Dawdah said the incident was the only security violation that took place on that day, adding that the whole region was under security control.

“Whoever cooperates with ISIS is one of them, and we will never accept that someone collaborates with that terrorist group,” Dawdah stated.

International politicians and human rights organizations fears have been increasing lately as for possible retaliatory actions against the people of towns liberated from ISIS by Iraqi government forces or popular militias. The Iraqi government and militias have, however, assured on civilians safety after the end of operations.

ISIS remains in control over the western coast of Sharqat, using that location as a launching point for attacks on government facilities.

Iraqi troops push into new Mosul neighborhoods under cover of air strikes
[RUDAW.NET] Clashes between advancing Iraqi forces and ISIS gunnies in djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
’s Intisar and Aden neighborhoods continued on Sunday as the troops carried out a house-to-house search for remaining gunnies and explosives in liberated quarters.

Iraqi Counterterrorism Forces (ICTF) had reached the edges of al-Qahira and al-Zuhur neighborhoods, northeastern Mosul by Sunday morning, Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, a commander of the forces told Rudaw.

The quarters of al-Tahrir, al-Moualimeen, and Oulama were liberated Saturday after days of intense festivities.

Al-Saadi downplayed ISIS strength and described the confrontations as "light festivities".

He added that "coalition aircraft also carried out Arclight airstrikes and killed 15 ISIS turbans,"

Many civilians in liberated neighborhoods have remained in their homes instead of heading to some refugees camps built for them by aid agencies ahead of the Mosul operation.

Rudaw news hounds in Mosul have noticed long queues of men, women and kiddies lining up before Iraqi soldiers and UN agencies to receive food.

Iraqi defense ministry releases video of ISIS-held western Mosul

[RUDAW.NET] The Iraqi defence ministry released a video Sunday that it claims was taken in the ISIS-occupied part of western djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
, to show that its intelligence agents have infiltrated neighborhoods still held by the bully boys.

"The heroes of the directorate of military intelligence were able to infiltrate the ISIS (ISIS) Lions of Islam inside their defense lines and inside the heart of Mosul and the city center," said the Iraqi General Directorate of Intelligence in a statement posted on the Iraqi defence ministry.

The video shows some roads inside Mosul, with a voice saying the film is being shot by Iraqi intelligence agents.

At one stage the male voice says they have arrived at the fifth bridge on the Tigris River, or Jisir al-Khamis. It then shows footage of a mosque, believed to be the Great Mosque of Mosul, or the Nuree Mosque as it is also called, where ISIS leader Abu Bakir al-Baghdadi announced the foundation of his so-called Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria in July 2014.

The voice on the video says that Iraqi intelligence agents carry out surveillance, track down ISIS Lions of Islam and kill them.

It also threatens that those who have adhered to ISIS or have cooperated with it the group "will not survive," unless they start to cooperate with the Iraqi security forces.

Iraqi forces have liberated parts of Mosul’s east bank, where fighting continues as the military tries to push into more neighborhoods.

ISIS big turban among militants killed in Mosul district

by Iraqi Counterterrorism Forces (ICTF) on Sunday, as troops conduced house-to-house searches in areas of the city they have liberated.

"The counterterrorism forces killed a wali (governor) of ISIS, the criminal Marwan Hamid Salih al-Hayali, and a number of murderous Moslems in the Aden neighborhood on the left bank" of Mosul, the Iraqi War Media reported.

Earlier in the day, Rudaw correspondents in Mosul reported festivities between advancing Iraqi forces and ISIS snuffies in the city’s Intisar and Aden neighborhoods, as the Iraqi troops carried out house-to-house search for remaining snuffies and explosives in liberated quarters.

The ICTF had reached the edges of the al-Qahira and al-Zuhur neighborhoods in northeastern Mosul by Sunday morning, Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi, a commander of the forces, told Rudaw.

He added that "coalition aircraft carried out Arclight airstrikes and killed 15 ISIS bully boys."

Iraqi forces have liberated several eastern districts of the city which lies on the left bank of the Tigris River that dissects Mosul but are facing stiff resistance as they try to push deeper inside.

Iraqi military reports progress on five fronts

[RUDAW.NET] The Iraqi military announced Sunday that forces involved in the djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
battle against ISIS were advancing on multiple fronts, clearing ISIS bombs and booby traps from roads and homes.

The offensive, called ’We Are Coming Nineveh," said that forces were operating on five fronts around Mosul.

In southwestern Mosul, where the Iraqi Federal Police is in charge, bomb disposal teams "have cleared the area of planted bombs and booby traps," the military said in a statement.

In southeastern Mosul, the army’s 9th Armored Division has "cleared the neighborhoods of Intisar, Jadida, Mufti, salam, Younis Sabaawi and Paleostine of bombs," it added.

On the third front in the eastern part of the city, the Iraqi Counter-Terrorism Forces were cleaning the districts of Bakir, Zahabiya, Khazza Qadisiya1, Tahrir and Wala of bombs planted by the Lion of Islams.

"At the same, several other buildings and the Khaza complex apartments, together with its water project, have been cleaned," the statement read.

In the northern part of Mosul, the army’s’ 16th division defused bombs and booby traps left behind by retreating krazed killers.

On the final fifth front, where the forces of the Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi are in charge, "the Tal Afar airport is cleared" of ISIS krazed killers, the statement said.

Iraqi troops fortify positions in freed Mosul areas

[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Iraqi troops on Sunday fortified their positions in djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
neighborhoods retaken from ISIS as their advance toward the city center was slowed by sniper fire and suicide kabooms, as well as concern over the safety of civilians.

"The biggest hindrance to us is the civilians, whose presence is slowing us down," Maj. Gen. Sami al-Aridi of the special forces told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named. "We are soldiers who are not trained to carry out humanitarian tasks."

A few hundred civilians emerged from rubble-strewn front-line neighborhoods on Sunday. They included women and kiddies, some of them carrying bags, small suitcases or waving white flags. Mosul is still home to more than 1 million people.

The government sent half-dozen trucks loaded with food aid into the recently liberated areas. Chaos broke out in one neighborhood, where residents climbed on top of the trucks and began helping themselves. Women extended their hands in desperation, trying to get a share of the aid. Young boys chased the trucks and jostled and pleaded for food packages.

"It’s hunger that makes people behave like this," said Mohammed Farouq, a 27-year-old resident. "Some families took many boxes, while others did not take any. This is unfair."

Fethi Mahmud Abdulla, another resident, pleaded for people to keep the lines. "People are tired, so tired. Some of them take aid five or seven times," he said.

Counterterrorism units
Counterterrorism units entered into the left coast of Mosul in Iraq amid fierce festivities against members of ISIS.

The unit’s forces fighting in the eastern axis of the city managed to liberate the neighborhoods of al-Moharebeen, al-Moalmeen and al-Oalmaa.

According to a statement issued by the commanders of the "We are coming Nineveh" operation, forces fighting ISIS continue liberating the neighborhoods of al-Bakr, al-Zahabiya, al-Khadra, al-Qadisiya al-Oula, al-Tahrir and al-Walaa.

...back at the desert island, Irene was indignant at the thought of doing such a thing without benefit of clergy...
the army’s ninth division continues to progress south east of Mosul in the neighborhoods of the left coast and continues to liberate the neighborhoods which it stormed in the past few days.

5 gunmen who wounded a Peshmerga in Halabjja killed, 1 on the run
[RUDAW.NET] Five gunnies who maimed a Peshmerga in Halabja and maimed him lightly, were killed on Sunday while one remains on the run.

Acting Halabja Governor Ali Othman told Rudaw that the identities of the gunnies, who attacked the Peshmerga on Saturday, still are no definitely known.

"Three of the gunnies were killed and another two blew themselves up. The search is on for a sixth man," Othman said.

A Peshmerga soldier who was on holiday and was spending some time off with three of his friends in the mountainous areas of the Giryana village, 20 km northeast of Halabja, was injured slightly by the gunnies on Saturday afternoon.

Mariwan Mohammad, the maimed Peshmerga, had said that he and his friends had seen five gunnies near a pond in Halabja and had called the security forces.

"Then, the gunnies saw us and fired on us and I was maimed," Amin earlier told Rudaw from his hospital bed.

The identity of gunnies remains unclear as of now. But one local official from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) said they belong to the so-called 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....
Halabja is a stronghold of the PUK, and the party maintains influence among the security forces.

"It has been sometime since we had received information that there are a number of ISIS forces of Evil in the area of Giryana village of Halabja," Ahmad Qadafari, the head of the PUK’s branch in Halabja told Rudaw earlier in the day, before the announcement from the Halabja governor.

The maimed Peshmerga said the attackers "were speaking in Kurdish and one of them had a long beard," indicating that they could have been Islamic murderous Moslems.

Qadafari said the attackers must be from Halabja.

He said that if not all of the gunnies come from the Halabja, "then certainly a number of them are, because the area has a difficult terrain, and if you are not familiar with it you cannot escape," he said, referring to the gunnies’s ability to flee after the shootings, before being tracked down.

In late August, Kurdish security forces rubbed out four gunnies identified as ISIS forces of Evil in the Azhdagh mountain in Sangaw in southern Sulaimani.

The military source added that the Syrian Armed Forces engaged the Islamic State Death Eaters for nearly four hours at the southern perimeter of the airport, killing more than 20 snuffies during the battle.

This latest attack on Sunday was the terrorist group's 3rd attempt this week to breach the Syrian Arab Army's defenses at the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.
