15 militants killed, 5 wounded in Laghman airstrikes: MoD
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] At least 15 Lions of Islam were killed and 5 others were maimed in a series of Arclight Arclight airstrikes conducted in eastern Laghman province of Afghanistan.
...It has a population of about 445,600, which is multi-ethnic and mostly a rural society. During the invasions of Alexander the Great, the area was known as Lampaka, wich is apparently Olde Macedonian for Laghman.The city of Mihtarlam serves as the bucolic capital of the province. The population is half Pashtun, the remainder Tadjik and Pashai. It had a repution of great wealth until it was conquered in the tenth century by Abu Mansur Sabuktigin.
He conquered it and set fire to the places in its vicinity which were inhabited by infidels, and demolishing the idol-temples, he established Islam in them, He marched and captured other cities and killed the polluted wretches, destroying the idolatrous and gratifying the Musulmans. After wounding and killing beyond all measure, his hands and those of his friends became cold in counting the value of the plundered property.
The Ministry of Defense (MoD) said the Arclight airstrikes were carried out in Alishen and Alingar districts.

No further details were regarding the Arclight airstrikes and it is yet not clear if the raids were conducted by the Afghan Air Force or the US forces based in Afghanistan.

Both the Afghan and US forces are conducting regular Arclight airstrikes against the Lions of Islam based in Afghanistan.

The increased raids followed amid rampant Taliban-insurgency across the country as the group is busy conducting attacks as part of its spring offensive.

The US forces based in Afghanistan resumed Arclight airstrikes against the Lions of Islam in Afghanistan after the B.O. regime granted them broader role to suppress the growing insurgency in the country.

Africa North
Malian Soldiers, Civilian Killed in Election-Linked 'Jihadist' Attacks
[AnNahar] Twin attacks blamed on jihadists during weekend municipal elections in Mali left six people dead, security sources said Monday.

The violence came as the country held its first election since 2013. Turnout was low however due to continuing fears over security despite the presence of international peacekeepers.

In the first incident, security sources told AFP that five Malian soldiers died after being ambushed while transporting ballot boxes in the restive north.

"After the voting on Sunday, an army convoy taking the ballot boxes for counting was attacked in the north by jihadists. Five Malian soldiers were killed," a security source said.

Another Malian security source said the assailants "wanted to sabotage the elections" and were unable to make off with the ballots.

In the second attack, in the town of Dilli in southwestern Mali overnight Sunday to Monday, a group of alleged jihadists nabbed several vehicles and killed a civilian .

"They arrived early Monday in Dilli. They attacked a council building. The jihadists then took off with two ambulances and a vehicle, after which they killed a civilian and made off for the Mauritanian border," a local official said, requesting anonymity.

A security source said the assailants were probably hoping to find ballot boxes in the building where counting was under way.

Voters are electing 12,000 councilors across Mali as the government wrestles with implementing a 2015 peace deal and warding off the stubborn jihadist threat in the north.

French troops were deployed in 2013 to repel al-Qaeda-aligned jihadists who had overrun several northern towns, joining forces with Tuareg-led rebels.

Some 11,000 U.N. military and police have followed, attempting to maintain security, but the jihadists remain active in the north while also spreading to the west African country's central regions.

Sunday's election -- held two years later than scheduled -- coincided with the first anniversary of a jihadist attack on the Radisson Blu hotel in the capital Bamako that left 20 people dead, many of them foreigners.

U.N. chief the ephemeral Ban Ki-moon called Saturday for a peaceful vote in areas "where political and security conditions allow" in a nation still under a state of emergency.

The twin attacks were among a string of disruptions to voting in northern and central Mali.

In Timbuktu on Sunday, unknown attackers seized and burned electoral papers in multiple raids.

Benghazi children blown apart by car bomb near school
[Libya Herald] A boom-mobile outside Jalaa Hospital has today killed at least four people and injured 26 including eight children who were leaving a nearby primary school when the kaboom occurred.

Eye-witnesses described body parts strewn around. Pictures showed nearby windows blown out and at least ten vehicles around the boom-mobile completely destroyed.

Children comforted each other as the smoke and dust cleared, amid the wail of car alarms and the tinkling of shattered glass. The injured were rushed the few metres to the hospital accident and emergency department. A hospital front man said some were in a critical condition and might not survive.

Yesterday evening the people of Benghazi had been celebrating what they believed was an end to the random rocketing from Gwarsha, after the army captured to Grad launcher.

But the authorities had warned of an increased risk of boom-mobiles. Security has supposedly been tightened with police road blocks and vehicle checks. Nevertheless, one bomber managed to get through.

Two of the dead today were brother and sister Saif al-Warfali 19 and Sara al-Warfali 23. Among the maimed was at least one seven year old boy.

Yesterday was the United Nations

nor did it name him. It said he was of Algerian origin and from the east of La Belle France.
So he's named Rachid, not Jean-Pierre.
Questioned by a French news hound, the man said he had been a second-hand car salesman and that was he had gone to Libya planning to move on to Syria and join the Nusra Front, the jihadist organization previously part of al-Qaeda. He had not intended to join IS.

He refused to send a message to his family on the basis that French intelligence would then know who he was.

There have been reports of European nationals fighting with IS in Libya but this is the first time a suspect has been arrested. Last year two Frenchies were arrested in the south of Tunisia, near the Libyan border, apparently planning to cross over and train in Libya before likewise heading to Syria. They, however, wanted to join IS.

Egypt confiscates assets of 46 Muslim Brotherhood members
[Iran Press TV] A committee affiliated with Egypt’s Justice Ministry has ordered the confiscation of assets belonging to 46 members and supporters of the Moslem Brüderbund, the latest in a widening government crackdown on the banned movement.

The committee issued the order on Monday, seizing companies involved in trade, construction, and pharmaceuticals.

Reports said notable individuals were among the owners of the companies and businesses confiscated, including Mohammed Abdel-Gawad, who served as the head of Egypt's pharmacists’ union during the rule of Mohammed Morsi, a senior Brotherhood leader and former Egyptian president who was ousted in a coup in 2013.

The Moslem Brüderbund was once Egypt's largest opposition group and still enjoys a huge public support. However,
denial ain't just a river in Egypt...
the government of current president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi outlawed the movement when the former army chief took power more than two years ago. Thousands of Brotherhood members and supporters have been enjugged
Please don't kill me!
while key figures have been sentenced to death or life in prison.

Sisi’s government has also confiscated assets of scores of Brotherhood members as part of the massive crackdown. The assets include schools, hospitals, and companies across the country.

On Sunday, Brotherhood officials rejected claims by some members that the movement was ready for reconciliation with Sisi.

In a statement, the group said it could not compromise on "the rights of the deaders and injured, the detainees’ right to freedom and the people’s right to honorable life."

#3  "On April 17, [2012] Egypt’s electoral commission permanently disqualified el-Shater and nine other prospective [Muslim Brotherhood] candidates from the race, declaring el-Shater ineligible because of a prior criminal conviction. El-Shater says he will back the candidacy of Mohamed Mursi [Morsy]... Regardless of the election wranglings, men like el-Shater and Malek, both millionaires, are likely to form the leadership core of the Muslim Brotherhood."

In 2012 Egypt's Brotherhood was (and in the USA is) a very wealthy organization.

...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 Arab coalition supporting Yemen’s government against the Houthis said a 48-hour ceasefire ended at midday (0900 GMT) Monday due to repeated violations by Houthi militias and their allies.

"There is no respect (for the truce), only violations," the coalition front man Major General Ahmed Assiri said, adding that there were "no orders to extend the ceasefire."

Assiri stated that the number of breaches committed by the militia since the beginning of the truce exceeded 500 breaches, 80 percent of them in Yemen, Al Arabiya news channel reported.

Europe
French police foil terror plot following arrests in Strasbourg and Marseille
[DeutscheWelle] Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed on Monday that police detained seven people of French, Moroccan and Afghan origin on Sunday. All of the suspects are aged between 29 and 37. Six of them were not previously known to intelligence services, and one had been flagged to La Belle France by a foreign government.

The raids were linked to a series of arrests in June during the European Championship soccer tournament that was held in cities across La Belle France, Interior Minister Cazeneuve said.

"An attack has been foiled ... The scale of the terrorist threat is enormous and it is not possible to ensure zero risk despite everything we are doing," Cazeneuve said.

Arrests in south and east
Two of the arrests were made in the southern port city of Marseille, while most of the others were made in Strasbourg neighborhoods of Neuhof and Meinau, where authorities dismantled a jihadi network in 2014. Included in the group was the brother of an Islamic State

(IS) bomber who attacked the Bataclan concert hall in Gay Paree last November.

Strasbourg - a tourist hotspot on the French-German border - is particularly popular in the winter months when it holds one of the oldest and largest Christmas markets, due to open on Friday. The historic city, which is also the official seat of the European Parliament, was previously the target of a failed krazed killer plot in 2000.

Target 'Gay Paree region'
Although Cazeneuve did not dislclose the target of the attack on Monday, Strasbourg's mayor said the focus of the plot was "the Gay Paree region," Rooters reported. The French capital has already been hit by two deadly attacks within the last two years, killing more than 140 people. A further 86 people were killed in July, in a separate attack in Nice.

According to the interior ministry, French police have detained 418 people this year in terrorism investigations following deadly Islamic State attacks.

Brooklyn man arrested for plotting truck attack in Times Square
Article contains additional details:

Federal authorities arrested a Brooklyn driver early Monday on charges of attempting to support ISIS just days before the annual Thanksgiving parade in New York that was the subject of a recent threat in an Islamic State magazine.

A criminal complaint alleges that Mohamed Rafik Naji, 37, a legal permanent U.S. resident and citizen of Yemen, discussed a plot to try to conduct a Nice-style attack using a garbage truck to mow down people in Times Square.

Naji was seized at his apartment on Clarendon Road in Flatbush in a multi-agency arrest. Authorities said he worked as a driver for Uber, though the company told NBC4 that he didn't work for them.

Yemeni charged in US with trying to support ISIS
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] A Yemeni man living in New York City was incarcerated
Drop the rod and step away witcher hands up!
on Monday and charged by US prosecutors with attempting to provide support to ISIS, including by expressing support for an attack in Times Square.

Mohammed Rafik Naji, who authorities say last year travelled to The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire....
and Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of. Except for a tiny handfull of Jews everthing there is very Islamic...
in an effort to join the Death Eater group, was charged in a criminal complaint filed in Brooklyn, where he lives.

He was arrested earlier Monday, according to a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He is expected to appear in court later in the afternoon.

A lawyer could not be immediately identified.

Naji, 37, is one of more than 100 people to face US charges since 2014 in cases related to ISIS, which has seized control of parts of Iraq and Syria.

According to the complaint, in March 2015, Naji flew to Turkey to join ISIS in Yemen, where it operated in certain parts. He returned to New York in September 2015, flying from Djibouti, the complaint said.

While abroad, he frequently emailed with his girlfriend, who he later called his wife, asking her for money and sending her a "selfie" of himself in black clothing in which a tactical vest and large knife could be seen, the complaint said.

Beginning in August 2015, a paid law enforcement informant made contact via Facebook with Naji, who the complaint said described ISIS as "spreading like a virus" that non-believers "can’t stop it no matter what they do."

Naji remained in contact with the informant once back in the United States, meeting on numerous occasions in which their conversations were recorded, the complaint said.

Those conversations included one on July 19, 2016, five days after an attack in Nice, La Belle France, that ISIS had grabbed credit for that killed 84 and hurt hundreds, the complaint said.
That's the one where the half-mad (according to his father) Tunisian rented a large truck and drove it at full speed through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day, shooting at those he didn't run down until the police killed him.
In that conversation, Naji expressed his support for staging a similar attack in New York’s Times Square, according to court papers.

"They want an operation in Times Square, reconnaissance group already put out a scene, ISIS already put up scenes of Times Square, you understand," Naji said, according to court papers. "I said that was an indication for whoever is smart to know."
CBS News adds a detail important to Americans, but clearly not to Al Arabiya:
Mohamed Rafik Naji is a citizen of Yemen and legal permanent resident of the U.S..

Iraqi forces search for suicide car bombs, cut supply routes to Mosul
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Iraqi troops fighting ISIS gunnies in the eastern outskirts of djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
regrouped on Monday in neighborhoods they have recently retaken from the myrmidon group and conducted house-to-house searches looking for vehicles primed for use in suicide kabooms, according to a top Iraqi commander.

Maj. Gen. Sami al-Aridi of the Iraqi military’s special forces told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named his men also foiled two attempted suicide boom-mobileings early Monday, firing from a US-made tank on the approaching vehicles, which went kaboom! before reaching their intended targets.

He said a civilian woman was maimed in the blasts.

Suicide boom-mobileings and sniper fire underline the difficulty of the campaign to retake Mosul - even in eastern parts where Iraq’s most combat-seasoned troops are operating.

Cutting supply route
Iraqi Shiite militias were massing troops on Monday to cut remaining supply routes to Mosul, ISIS’ last major stronghold in Iraq, closing in on the road that links the Syrian and Iraqi parts of its self-declared "Caliphate".

Six weeks into the US-backed offensive on Mosul, ISIS is fighting in the area of Tal Afar, 60 km (40 miles) to the west, against a coalition of Iranian-backed groups known as Popular Mobilization.

Cutting the western road to Tal Afar would seal off Mosul as the city is already surrounded to the north, south and east by Iraqi government and Kurdish Peshmerga forces.

Iraqi forces make further gains north and south of Mosul

[RUDAW.NET] Iraqi forces on Monday made further advances into northern and southern djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
, while the state-backed Shiite paramilitary was able to "fully clear up" Tal Afar airport, the Iraqi War Media Office said in a round-up on the day’s achievements.

On the al-Zab Front, the 9th armored division and the Nineveh Operations Command were able to liberate the al-Salamiyah area, al-Salamiyah water project, the villages of al-Hamirah and the al-Tawatinat al-Jadida on the Kirkuk-Mosul road. They were also able to open the road between Hamdaniyah towards the Mosul-Kirkuk road and freed the road between Kubar-Hamdaniyah intersection.

On the northern front, the 16th division was able to liberate the villages of al-Salam, Orta Kharab and Abbasiyah, north of Mosul’s al-Qahirah neighborhood on the left bank of the Tigris River.

On the western front, the state-backed Shiite Hashd al-Shaabi paramilitaries fully cleared up Tal Afar airport and cut the road between the airport and Tal Afar district.

On the eastern front, the Iraqi counterterrorism forces continued to clear the buildings and roads currently under their control in several neighborhoods.

PMU will block ISIS-held Tal Afar as part of its fourth phase of combat operations

... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
's west, as part of its fourth phase to liberate the city, the militias spokesperson, Abdu Ghani al-Assadi, told IBN news.

"As the Tal Afar airport was completely purged, as well as a number of villages located between the precinct and the airport, security forces are preparing for the fourth phase of western Mosul liberation," he stated.

"The troops are 4500 meters away from the administrative borders of northern Tal Afar," Assadi said, adding that his militia’s role would be to "consummate a blockade on Tal Afar to isolate it from external supply routes preparing for its invasion by the forces assigned for that mission."

"The liberation of Tal Afar will be carried out by the army, federal police and local mobilization units consisted of the town’s people," Assadi said.

The liberation of Tal Afar is essential to blocking any ISIS escape from Mosul to Syria.

Mass grave containing over 200 bodies found near Mosul

[ALMASDARNEWS] Sky Press have reported that a mass grave containing at least 200 bodies executed by ISIS were discovered near djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
on Monday.

" A security force noticed a group of stray dogs scavenging the ground in Hammam al-Alil. Moving to that spot, the forces ran into dead bodies pulled out by the dogs," Sky Press reported.

As the Mosul liberation operations continue, more and more mass graves are being found, revealing the true extend of ISIS atrocities.

It is not known at this moment who those that were executed are.

ISIS photo-documentation officer killed in Mosul: ministry

Baghdad – (IraqiNews.com) The photo-documentation officer at the Islamic State extremist group was killed in security operations at Mosul, the Ministry of Defense said on Monday.

The militant, operating within ISIS’s Amaq News Agency, was killed in operations by the 9th armored division as part of the “We Are Coming, Nineveh” operations,” according to a statement by the ministry.

“Security forces will proceed to chase other elements that appeared in snaps taken by the deceased photographer and were found on the three cameras in his possession.

ISIS has been sustaining severe losses in equipment as well as in leaderships and vital cadres since Iraqi government forces and popular militias launched a major campaign mid October to liberate Mosul, the extremist group’s last foothold in Iraq.

On Sunday, Anti-terrorism forces said they had killed the group’s so-called “Wali (governor) of Aden”, Marwan Hamed Saleh al-Hayali.

2427 refugees back to liberated areas in Nineveh: ministry

Baghdad – (Iraqinews.com) More than 2400 refugees escaping battles between security forces and Islamic State militants have returned to their liberated residences in Nineveh, the Ministry of Migration and Displacement said on Monday.

Ministry official Diaa Sallal said in a statement that 2427 people left the Jadaa camps in Qayyara, Mosul, and Debka, Erbil, and returned home after obtaining security clearances.

The ministry had said earlier this month that the number of refugees escaping violence in Nineveh’s Mosul, the stage of decisive battles between Iraqi security and ISIS, surpassed 56000. Observers say the numbers continue to soar due to the ongoing battles.

Security officials and observers have blamed occasional slowdowns in the operations to liberate Mosul to the existence of civilians at the city’s centre and the fear of using them by ISIS as human shields. Recent reports have also confirmed that ISIS began to bombard the recaptured areas, posing a danger to civilians there.

On Sunday, The UK government’s Middle East and North Africa spokesperson, Edwin Samuel, said in a statement that there are currently international efforts to set up new refugee camps in Iraq to admit 450.000 refugees.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Lebanon builds wall near Ein el-Hellhole
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Leb is building wall near the country’s largest Paleostinian refugee camp to prevent holy warriors from infiltrating, a military source said Monday.

The overcrowded and impoverished Ain al-Hilweh camp near the southern coastal city of Sidon has gained notoriety in recent years as a refuge for Moslem holy warriors and runaways.

It also saw deadly fighting last year between the Jund al-Sham Islamist group and members of Paleostinian president the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas

’s Fatah movement.

And in September the army said security forces had tossed in the calaboose

...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....
group who was in the camp.

"The construction of the wall began some time ago and the aim is to stop the infiltration of forces of Evil inside Ain al-Hilweh from nearby orchards," the military source told AFP.

"It’s a security measure" that was taken after the arrest of "runaway terrorists" who had taken shelter in the camp, he said.

Pictures were posted online showing cranes lifting huge concrete blocks on the western side of Ain al-Hilweh then setting them side by side, as well as watchtower.

Social media users compared the wall to a controversial separation barrier which Israel has been building in the occupied West Bank since 2002.

"Soon, the children of Ain al-Hilweh will draw pictures depicting Paleostine and freedom on the wall of shame," one person said online.

A camp official, Fuad Othman, called the wall a "provocation".
All walls are provocations until completed, at which point they become enclosures, or at least tactical obstacles.
Major General Mounir al-Maqdah, the head of the Paleostinian security forces in Leb, criticised the construction of the wall.

"The wall, parts of which have been erected, is causing psychological pressure for the Paleostinian refugees," said Maqdah.

"We wouldn’t have needed a separation barrier and watchtowers if the Lebanese authorities had, years ago, found a solution to the Paleostinian presence in Leb," he added.

The military source said Leb "is not building a prison or a separation wall, but a wall for protection", adding residents would be able to go in and out from the camp, except from the western side.

By long-standing convention, the army does not enter Paleostinian refugee camps in Leb but holds positions outside of it, leaving the factions to handle security inside.

More than 61,000 Paleostinian refugees live in Ain al-Hilweh, including 6,000 who recently fled the war in Syria, according to the UN’s agency for Paleostinian refugees, UNRWA.

6 Syrian soldiers surrender themselves to ISIS near Deir Ezzor Airport
[ALMASDARNEWS] During a fierce battle in Syria's eastern city of Deir Ezzor yesterday, six Syrian soldiers were taken captive by ISIS despite the latter being unable to yield any territorial gains.

The video above was originally posted by Amaq Agency, an outlet affiliated with the Islamic State

. The claim of captured soldiers could not be independently verified by al-Masdar News' military source in the city.

Recently, the Islamic State slaughtered dozens of people in Deir Ezzor, hanging them by meat hooks and letting them bleed to death.

Syrian Army disrupts rebel supply route in new ambush

The ambush, which also killed the truck driver, was carried out in an area called Wadi al-Azib; a longtime supply route for jihadi groups fighting the Syrian Army in al-Salamiyah city.

The predominantly-Ismaili city is repeatedly attacked by ultraconservative fighters from Jabhet Fateh al-Sham as well as ISIS terror organization.

(FSA) factions shifted their attention on Monday and began attacking Kurdish-held villages in the northeastern part of Aleppo province.

Preceded by a massive primarily Turkish artillery bombardment and at least 26 Arclight airstrikes by the Turkish Air Force, the FSA stormed Sheikh Nassir village in the early morning hours.

Skirmishes continued until noon when the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) withdrew from the village. As the FSA swarmed through Sheikh Nassir, rebel forces captured three Kurdish fighters who were unable to escape the battle in time.

Then, on Monday afternoon, Kurdish forces went on the counter-offensive, retaking Sheikh Nassir just hours after it was lost. During the battle, 21 FSA fighters were killed and 3 Turkish soldiers injured; the latter due to the destruction of a Turkish armored vehicle.

On Sunday, rebel forces had otherwise launched two consecutive assaults on nearby Qabasin, a highly embattled town under ISIS control. Both attacks were repelled although an Islamic State VBIED was destroyed during the festivities.

The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire....
has legitimized its attacks on the SDF under the guise that the Kurdish YPG - the primary contingent of the SDF - had failed to withdraw to the east of the Euphrates River despite promising to do so last week.

The YPG - a sister party of the outlawed PKK - is considered a terrorist organization by Ankara.

Meanwhile,
...back at the desert island, Bert was realizing to his horror that he'd had only one bottle for one message, and he'd forgotten to include a return address...
a SDF spokesperson said the group would seriously consider abandoning the campaign to liberate Raqqa if the U.S. did not pressure Turkey to halt its attacks on the SDF.

#1  The US must call for extraterritorial Turkish aggressions on the Kurds to stop, and must impose consequences. I wonder if President Trump might want to let his buddy Putin have some airstrike target lists that would be politically difficult for US forces, but not so for the Russians... hmm.
