Over 70 rockets fired on Kunar from Pakistan in past 24 hours
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] The restive eastern Kunar province
... which is right down the road from Chitral. Kunar is Haqqani country.....
of Afghanistan once again witnessed artillery shelling from the other side of the Durand Line as dozens of shells landed in its two districts in the past twenty four hours.

According to the local officials, the artillery shelling took place on Sarkano and Khas Kunar districts.

Provincial police front man Faridullah Dehqan confirmed that more than 70 artillery shells landed in the vicinity of the two districts.

He said no human loss or collateral damage was reported as a result of the shelling.

This comes as the Afghan government earlier this month wrote a formal memo to the United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...
Security Council to file a complaint regarding the growing artillery shelling by the Pak military in eastern provinces of the country located along the Durand Line.

The Afghan government in its memo mentioned regarding the 1,266 artillery shells fired on eastern provinces since the month of January that has inflicted casualties to the residents besides causing collateral damage.

The memo also contained information regarding the displacement of more than 400 families due to the shelling.

Tensions between Kabul

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....
and Islamabad intensified following a series of deadly terrorist attacks in both the countries.

Taliban imposing tribute in Zabul
A number of truck drivers said this week that the Taliban has started imposing illegal taxes on them in the Shamalzai district of Zabul province and when they cross the Durand Line and enter the district, they give 8,000 to 15,000 (Pakistani) Rupees to the Taliban and receive a customs receipt.

“They have built camps there and are always there. We cannot tell them anything,” said Rahimullah, a driver.

The drivers also said border police and local police in the Shamalzai – Qalat road force them to pay money.

“We cannot say no to the Taliban or government. They stand in our way and ask for money,” said Abdul Shokor, a driver.

Zabul provincial police chief, Mirwais Khan Noorzai confirmed Taliban takes money from the drivers, but Taliban have not officially commented on the issue.

“Taliban have not established a custom, they are thieves and sometimes come there and stand on the road,” Noorzai said.

Zabul provincial council meanwhile said Taliban takes money from 3,000 trucks that use the road through Shamalzai district.

“In the regions out of government control, Taliban have established a custom and take 15,000 Rupees from every truck,” said Assadullah Kakar, deputy head of the council.

Shamalzai district is the most insecure district in Zabul province, which shares a 64km border with Pakistan. According to local officials, 34km of the border of the district is controlled by security forces, while the remaining 30km is controlled by Taliban.

The 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan National Army in Eastern Afghanistan said the operations and Arclight airstrikes were conducted in the vicinity of Kot district.

The district was once one of the main strongholds of the loyalists of the terror group from where they launched their operations in Afghanistan.

In the meantime, the 201st Corps of the Afghan Army said the Afghan forces and the local residents did not suffer any casualties during the operations.

The provincial police commandment earlier reported that 24 Taliban turbans including four big shots of the group were killed in an Arclight airstrike in Ghani Khel district last night.

This comes as the Afghan forces are busy conducting clearance operations under the name of Shaheen-25 operations which were launched more than one ago to suppress the growing insurgency of ISIS terrorist group in Nangarhar province.

The operations led by 201st Silab Corps of the Afghan National Army (ANA) forces were launched after receiving approval from the national security council of the country.

murderous Moslem on the country's "most wanted" list who allegedly helped send recruits to Libya and Somalia, police said on Thursday.

Police seized Ali Hussein Ali, who is nicknamed "Trusted One", and two accomplices in the coastal town of Malindi on Monday.

In a statement, the police said Ali had helped smuggle recruits to Islamic State in Libya where he has ties with a human trafficking ring, and to the al-Shabaab
... the personification of Somali state failure...
murderous Moslem group in Somalia.

He also moved money around East Africa and beyond for Islamic State, police said.

Kenya has in recent years suffered a series of attacks by al-Shabaab, which is waging an insurgency against the U.N.-backed government in Somalia, where Kenya has deployed peacekeepers.

Islamic State has also claimed at least two low-level attacks in Kenya.

Kenyan police said Ali was born in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, and moved to Kenya in 2010 under the guise of being a tourist. He then moved to Libya, via South Africa and Sudan, where he joined IS, before returning to Kenya last November, police added.

The two men he was arrested with are also suspected of having links to Islamic State and al-Shabaab, the police said.

Africa Subsaharan
Uganda: Another Kony Rebel Surrenders
[All Africa] A former senior signaller in the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a perennial thorn in Africa's side led by elusive rebel leader Joseph Kony
... The Lords Resistance Army is a religious and military group formed in 1987. It is led by Joseph Kony, who proclaims himself the spokesperson of God and a spirit medium, and who is periodically possessed by demons, Beelzebub and Legion prominent among them. Kony advises his soldiers to draw crosses on their chests as a protection against bullets. This does't work, but nobody outside the LRA minds. The group is based on a hodge podge of apocalyptic Christianity, mysticism, and traditional Acholi religion, and claims to be establishing a theocratic state based on an odd interpretation of the Ten Commandments. The LRA is famous for systematic criminal conduct, including murder, abduction, mutilation, sexual enslavement of women and children, forcing children to participate in hostilities, and occasional cannibalism. The LRA operates mainly in northern Uganda and also in parts of Sudan, Central African Republic and DR Congo...
has defected from the rebel outfit to the Uganda People's Defense Forces (UPDF).

Lt Michael Omona, 33, defected on January 20, from the jungles of Central African Republic (CAR) after spending 23 years in captivity.

He was airlifted to Gulu on Monday and welcomed by religious leaders led by Gulu Archbishop John Baptist Odama, security officials and cultural leaders amid ululation from relatives at Gulu Airfield.

Mr Omona joins two other former ex-LRA fighters; Sgt Peter Kidega, a former radio signaler and Julius Obira. They both surrendered to the UPDF in October last year and February last month respectively.

He was kidnapped by LRA rebels in 1994 at his ancestral home in Alero Sub-county in current day Nwoya District while still in Primary Five at Alero Primary School. According to Ugandan security officials, Mr Omona, a father of two, first surrendered to the Seleka
...a 'mainly' Moslem rebel force in the Central African Republic that overthrew the govt, imposed a regime of rapine and looting on the country's non-Moslem population, and was then tossed by France. They still exist, getting funding and weapons from somewhere or other, licking their wounds, complaining about the oppression of Moslems, and occasionally raping and looting someone...
rebels in Central African Republic before being handed over to the UPDF and American security agents in Obo. Speaking to Daily Monitor in an interview on Monday, Mr Omona said his plans of defection followed an order by Mr Kony, who summoned his group comprising 30 rebels, to meet him at an undisclosed venue in CAR.

"We had lost touch with other LRA commanders and Mr Kony himself for two months. We were being commanded by Maj Okot Owila but we later got reports that Kony wanted to meet us and I thought to myself I wasn't going to go back to him, so I escaped on my way from Lukoto river," Mr Omona said.

He added: "I wandered in the jungle for ten days before entering the Seleka rebels' held territory in Sam Ouandja. I surrendered to them and their commanders later took me to the UPDF who treated me well."

"I want to thank my parents, religious and cultural leaders for the prayers. I want to thank God that I escaped and reached home safely because it wouldn't have been possible without Him," Mr Omona said.

Archbishop Odama applauded the UPDF and the American government for their efforts in bringing home ex-LRA fighters and urged those still in captivity to take the opportunity and surrender.

Lt Hassan Kato, the 4th Division infantry spokesperson, said the continued pressure UPDF has put on LRA remnants in the jungles of CAR has made life unbearable for Kony and his men.

"Kony can no longer administer his men and they are left with no option but to defect to UPDF," Lt Kato said.

The LRA war that lasted for nearly two decades led to the displacement of more than 1.5 million people with tens of thousands losing their lives while women and kiddies were kidnapped and turned into child soldiers and sex slaves.

Arabia
Al-Qaeda claims responsibility for Yemen terrorist attack, photos released
[ALMASDARNEWS] Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula claimed responsibility on Friday for the recent Lahij suicide attacks.

Despite Al-Qaeda in Yemen using ISIS logos and flags to make their announcement, confusingly it was Al-Qaeda who claimed responsibility, and not ISIS.
That would seem to imply that the two are one.
The attack by Al-Qaeda on 27 March by four suicide bombers killed six soldiers and five civilians.

Three Suspected Al Qaeda Members Killed in Yemen Drone Strike
[USNEWS] Three suspected al Qaeda members were killed overnight in what local officials believed was a U.S. dronezap in southern Yemen.

Residents and local officials said on Friday the attack took place in Mozno in al-Wadie district of Abyan
...a governorate of Yemen. The region was a base to the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army terrorist group until it dropped the name and joined al-Qaeda. Its capital is Zinjibar. In March 2011, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula declared the governate an Islamic Emirate after seizing control of the region. The New York Times fastidiously reported that those in control, while Islamic hard boyz, are not in fact al-Qaeda, but something else that looks, tastes, smells, and acts the same.

province. The three killed included the local leader of the Lion of Islam group, Waddah Muhammed Amsouda, who was meeting the others in a house in the area, they said.

Residents also reported a separate attack on a suspected al Qaeda vehicle, in the same province, but said the number of casualties was unknown.

The United States has repeatedly attacked AQAP, using aircraft and unmanned drones in what U.S. officials say is a campaign to degrade the group's ability to coordinate attacks abroad.

AQAP has exploited two years of civil war in Yemen to recruit followers and cement its dominance in central and southern parts of the poor Arabian Peninsula country.

The Pentagon has said that a March 2 strike against AQAP killed Yasir al Silmi, also know as Mohammed Tahar, a former detainee from the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay.

Bangladesh
Militants by inheritance?
[Dhaka Tribune] Members of law enforcement agencies were shocked at the horrifying scene when they entered the Nasirpur den after they ended the 33-hour-long Operation Hit Back on Thursday.

The bodies of four children, all under 10 years of age, were strewn around in the krazed killer den in Nasirpur village in Moulvibazar.

The bodies were so badly disintegrated that it was only after a scene of the crime unit went through the place, it was determined that there were two females, one male and four children there.

Police believe that the three adults in that bungalow, who were suspected members of the New Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (New JMB) terrorist group, blew themselves up along with the children in the face of a raid.

This brings up the number of children killed by New JMB to five ‐ all of whom were children of one or more members of the group ‐ and there is reason to fear that another four young lives may be lost soon.

DMP’s Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime Unit chief Monirul Islam said: "There was a big kaboom at the beginning of our operation. That was when they blew themselves up, including the children."

Locals of Nasirpur are unable to understand what compelled the bandidos bully boyz do this.

Khalilpur Union Gay Pareehad Chairman Arbid Poddar said: "What was their benefit from this atrocious act? What did the bandidos bully boyz accomplish by killing their own children?"

Mukaddesh Ali, imam of a local mosque, would only say: "What kind of Islam is this? How are they establishing Islam through such acts?"

There are now increased concerns about the other den in Moulvibazar, a duplex-residence in Borohat that is being raided. By account of locals, there were 10 people including four children inside the house.

Moulvibazar Municipality Ward 6 Councillor Jalal Ahmed, whose house is located near the Borohat hideout, said that the death of four children in Nasirpur had created anxiety among locals about the four in this den.

"People of Sylhet condemn such misdeeds. This is murder and nothing else," he said.

On March 16, a child was found dead in the Premtola krazed killer den in Sitakunda, Chittagong where four snuffies including a woman blew themselves up during a police operation.

Before that, a four-year-old girl named Sabina, suffered splinter injuries when a female New JMB member, that was her mother, came out of a krazed killer hideout with her and blew herself up during police raid in Dhaka’s Ashkona on December 26 last year.

The kaboom broke her left arm, and splinters pierced her belly and made some holes in the oesophagus. She underwent a surgery at Dhaka Medical College Hospital and was brought back from the edge of death.

Afif Qadri, whose father Tanvir Qadri, a New JMB leader, did away with himself during a raid on September 10 last year on a krazed killer hideout in Azimpur, refused to surrender during the raid.

His twin brother Tahrim Qadri alias Russell, who was placed in durance vile
Drop the rod and step away witcher hands up!
two weeks later, confessed before the court that their parents- Tanvir Qadri and Abedatul Fatema Khadiza- were involved in krazed killer activities and they got involved with the militancy by inheritance.

Mawlana Farid Uddin Masud, who is leading a campaign of Islamic scholars against militancy, said: "Children are beyond sides in any war, conflict and ideology in the eyes of Islam and Shariah."

Masud, who is the imam of the Sholakia Eid congregation, told the Dhaka Tribune: "Our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SM) always instructed keeping children and woman away from any unrest or humiliation. Hadith says in many places that children would get Jannat (heaven) if they are killed in any situation. They have no sin.

"If anyone uses children as shields in such a heinous manner, they will be punished. This practice of snuffies is unacceptable. Militancy is not recognised by the holy religion," he added.

Bangladesh Islamic Foundation’s Director General Shamim Mohammad Afzal said: "This is not Islam. Islam always respects and protects Moslems and other believers. Killing children is unacceptable in our religion."

Psychologist Dr Mehtab Khanam said the snuffies who were arrested alive needed to be examined to find out what drives them to do this.

"We must carry out campaigns against such activities," she suggested.

Operation Maximus suspended due to low light, militants still inside
[Dhaka Tribune] ‐ CTTC Chief Monirul Islam says that the operation is ongoing and has been halted for the night due to low light.

‐ Operation will be resumed from tomorrow morning, weather permitting.

‐ Explosions that have been heard were IEDs set off by snuffies whenever SWAT tried to approach the building.

‐ The number of snuffies inside the building is still unknown.

‐ The snuffies are suspected to have a huge cache of explosives.

‐ The operation is proving difficult as the hideout has a number of different rooms wherein snuffies may be hiding.

late Thursday before boarding a flight in Charleston, the U.S. Justice Department said on Friday.

Zakaryia Abdin of Ladson, South Carolina, appeared in federal court on Friday in Charleston on the charge of trying to aid a designated foreign terrorist organization, the department said in a statement.

The charge is based on Abdin’s suspected attempt to travel overseas to join Islamic State, whose fighters seized control of large areas of Syria and Iraq but have been losing ground in both countries.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrested Abdin at Charleston International Airport, the statement said. It did not give details about the evidence against him.

It was not immediately clear if Abdin had a lawyer to comment on the case against him.

province.

Mehmoodul Hasan alias Khwaja Madni was said to be an important member of the TTP.

According to sources, the security forces conducted the search operation in Tor Mazdak area of the agency, close to the Balochistan border, after receiving information about the presence of Lion of Islam leaders there.

They said a clash erupted when the security personnel were searching houses in the area, leaving the two men dead.

The sources said Khwaja Madni had remained affiliated with TTP chief Baitullah Mehsud. He joined Waliur Rehman after Baitullah died in a drone attack.

They said Khwaja Madni stayed back in Waziristan after all leaders of the TTP escaped to Afghanistan in the wake of military operations.

Pakistani Taliban claims bombing at mosque
[NEWS.AU] A powerful boom-mobile has went kaboom! near a minority Shi'ite Moslem mosque in the northwest town of Parachinar, killing at least 24 people and wounding over 70 others, officials say.

Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a breakaway faction of Pak Talibs, grabbed credit for Friday's attack.

Spokesman Asad Mansoor said in a statement that the suicide kaboom was carried out by one of the group's members, Abul Durda, using a boom-mobile to target Shi'ites who the snuffies consider heretics.

The blast was so powerful it also damaged vehicles and nearby shops, according to government administrator Zahid Hussain.

Parachinar is a key town in the Kurram tribal region bordering Afghanistan and has been wracked by sectarian violence in the past.

The region was also once a stronghold of Pak Taliban and Sunni myrmidon groups.

Although the army says it has cleared Kurram of myrmidons, violence has continued in the region.

Sabir Hussain, a hospital official, said the Pakistain army used helicopters to transport 40 maimed to hospitals in the northwestern city of Beautiful Downtown Peshawar
...capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly known as the North-West Frontier Province), administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistan's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire.
Later, the mourners marched again carrying the blast victims in caskets and staged a sit-in near the office of the area administrator.

Earlier, the Mighty Pak Army said it dispatched a helicopter along with a team of doctors to help the victims and evacuate maimed persons.

Iraq
6 ISIS leaders die in airstrike in Kirkuk
Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Airstrikes killed six Islamic State leaders southwest of Kirkuk on Friday, according to Kurdish military sources.

The six members were killed when an airstrike targeted their gathering on an IS-held road between al-Riyadh and al-Khaled regions west of Kirkuk, military sources within Peshmerga troops were quoted saying.

Iraqi government forces have been backed by fighter jets from the U.S.-led international military coalition in its campaign running since 2014 to clear Iraqi cities from Islamic State militants.

IS has been holding a few strongholds in southwestern Kirkuk since it emerged in 2014 to proclaim an “Islamic Caliphate”. IS has been losing personnel and ground since a campaign launched in October to retake areas held by the group, most notably the city of Mosul, its largest bastion in Iraq.

The Iraqi government, once finished with its campaign in Mosul, is expected to launch further offensives at other areas held by IS, including Kirkuk.

IS has executed hundreds of civilians in Kirkuk’s town of Hawija over accusations ranging from fleeing its strongholds and collaborating with security forces.

Iraqi militia shoots down ISIS drone in Salahuddin
Shirqat (IraqiNews.com) Pro-Iraqi government paramilitary forces downed a drone guided by Islamic State militants in Salahuddin province on Friday.

Al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Units) said through its media service they brought down a drone guided by the militant group in Ein al-Baida village, south of the town of Shirqat.

IS militants still pose a security threat in Salahuddin though security forces had recaptured large areas of the province since the group emerged in 2014 to proclaim an “Islamic Caliphate”.

Islamic State members have increasingly relied on weaponized drones in bombing civilians and security troops in Mosul, where IS has been losing ground and personnel since a security campaign launched in October to retake the city.

PMUs have been actively fighting IS in Iraq alongside the Iraqi government troops since 2014. They won official recognition as a national force that responds to the Prime Minister last November.

5 ISIS militants die in Mosul


Mosul (IraqiNews.com) U.S-led coalition airstrikes have killed three senior Islamic State leaders in western Mosul, while two suicide bombers were killed before carrying out an attack.

A statement by the Defense Ministry said late Thursday that coalition strikes pounded IS locations in al-Islah district in western Mosul, killing three senior leaders of the militant group.

According to the statement, those killed included one nicknamed Abu Gamal al-Baljiki, a military area commander, ahmed Suhaib al-Takriti, the group’s “economy official” and Mohamed Elwan al-Takriti, who was in charge of IS camps in western Mosul.

A separate statement by the Interior Ministry also said security forces killed two suicide attackers from IS putting on explosive vests at Hammam al-Alil, an area in southern Mosul recaptured late 2016 by security forces, which also hosts refugee camps.

Iraqi government forces recaptured eastern Mosul in January, and have been struggling since mid February to retake the western side of the city that fell to IS in 2014.

Iraqi and coalition generals have reiterated that IS combat powers were waning and many senior leaders had been killed or fled the city since operations launched to liberate the western region.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Palestinian teen suspected of throwing rocks shot by IDF near Ramallah
[IsraelTimes] Earlier Friday, soldiers arrest resident of a village near Hebron carrying knife at Tomb of the Patriarchs.

IDF troops shot a Paleostinian teen Friday night who was suspected of hurling rocks at vehicles on a highway west of Ramallah in the West Bank.

The teen was shot and moderately injured outside the West Bank village of Nil’in, Paleostinian media reported.

Paleostinian media identified the teen as 15-year-old Utbah Jiad Amirah.

Amirah received medical treatment on site and taken to a hospital under arrest, Hebrew website Ynet reported.

Earlier on Friday evening, a Border Police officer was lightly maimed when he was hit by a rock thrown at him by Paleostinians during a protest against the security barrier near Nil’in. The officer was taken to the Sheba Hospital for treatment.

Border Police officers also stopped a Paleostinian Friday evening near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron who raised their suspicions. A search of the man’s person found he was carrying a concealed knife. The suspect was taken into custody.

Police are investigating the incident and suspect that the man, a resident of the Paleostinian village of Yatta, was planning to carry out a stabbing attack against security forces or worshipers at the site.

(FSA) factions have helped to reduce the risk of Islamic State fighters regrouping in areas near Damascus and the Jordanian border as they face major defeats in Syria and Iraq.

in Iraq could find a safe haven in the vast areas of the Syrian Desert bordering Jordan.

The rebels fighting in southern Syria have received military aid funneled via Jordan in a program overseen by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.

Their sudden gains are a culmination of months of covert operations in which they have ambushed and cut communications lines to weaken the Death Eaters' stronghold in the southeastern border area close to Iraq, the rebels say.

"Extensive areas have fallen into our hands. (Islamic State) has been pushed out of them in heavy festivities in 16 days of battles," said Talas al Salameh, the commander of the Osoud al Sharqiya, the biggest of the FSA groups in the area.

"(Islamic State) had cut roads and were in control and had been positioned in former Syrian army bases with a strong presence and with heavy armor. We cut links between their areas and as a result they began to retreat," al-Salamah said.

In northern Syria, Islamic State has come under growing military pressure in recent months from separate campaigns being waged by the U.S.-backed Arab and Kurdish fighters, by the Russian-backed Syrian army and by The Sick Man of Europe Turkey

The U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State is backing an alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters - the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) - in the campaign to isolate and capture Raqqa city on the other side of the country.

Islamic State propaganda outlet Amaq targeted by computer hack
[WASHINGTONTIMES] 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....
’s propaganda arm, Amaq, issued a warning Wednesday after its website was compromised in a manner that made visitors susceptible to cyberattacks.

Amaq took to its Telegram account on Wednesday after learning that individuals who attempted to load its website were being asked to download a covert piece of malware.

"Warning! Amaq’s website has been penetrated and requests downloading a virus file disguised as a Flash installer. Please exercise caution," the propaganda outlet warned Wednesday, according to a translation shared by independent researcher Raphael Gluck.

Vice.com’s tech news website Motherboard obtained a copy of the bogus Flash installer from Mr. Gluck this week and said the file appeared to be a widely-known piece of malware designed to give an attacker backdoor access to a victim’s computer.

"This remote-access-tool (RAT) has the capability to steal credentials, take screenshots, take pictures or video through the webcam, log keystrokes and transfer files. This tool has been around since at least 2013 and is very common due to a leaked builder and server freely available on low-level criminal forums that allows the attacker to create their own customized RAT," Willis McDonald, a threat researcher at Boston-based IT firm Core Security told Motherboard.
