Pakistani Militia Backed Daesh in Tora Bora Offensive: NDS
The ISI has been using trained jihadis since the 1950s as a tool of policy. Why change now, just because the group is connected to a world-wide conquest effort?
Update at 9:45 a.m. EDT: My apologies. I forgot that the Taliban (Afghan branch) were a tool of the ISI first, making this even more interesting.
[Tolo News] Abdul Saboor Sabet, the head of the National Directorate of Security
...the Afghan national intel agency...
(NDS) in 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..
claimed on Thursday that Pak militia fully supported ISIS in their offensive against the Tora Bora region this week in eastern Nangarhar province.

In a trip to Nangarhar’s Chaparhar district on Thursday, Sabet said that Pak militia are still backing ISIS Death Eaters in the region.

"ISIS Death Eaters sustained heavy loses, whenever they suffer a toll, they get reinforcements from the other side of the border who are the Pak militias. The (Afghan) public uprising forces are bravely defending all districts against the enemies," said Sabet.

Meanwhile,
...back at the shouting match, the spittle had reached unprecedented levels...
General Zaman Waziri, the commander of 201 Selab Army Corps has ordered the government forces to eliminate ISIS Death Eaters in Tora Bora region and in Chaparhar district within 24 hours.

This new development takes place a day after ISIS operatives took control of the strategic region of Tora Bora located in Pacheragam district of Nangarhar following a week-long battle with Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
hard boys.

"At least 700 ISIS Death Eaters had been killed including their leader and they suffered major loses in Kot and Achin districts. They chose another way and attacked Sulaimankhail, then they relocated from Pacheragam to Chapalyar region, however ... now they are moving toward Pacheragam and then towards Tora Bora," said Waziri.

The fresh wave of violence in the region has left dozens of families homeless with many others trying to evacuate the area to save their lives.

ISIS takes control of Tora Bora region after Waziri stated that up to 700 ISIS operatives had been killed in Nangarhar as a result of a military operation by security forces over the past three months.

Tagab District Cleared But Taliban Threat Remains
[Tolo News] Local officials in Badakhshan said on Thursday that after a seven-day operation, security forces have cleared the Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
from Tagab district’s insecure areas.

Badakhshan Police Chief Abdul Khaliq Aqsaee said the Taliban had stationed themselves one kilometer from the district center for the past two years.

According to him, government forces slowed down their military operations with the arrival of Ramadan but when the Taliban attacked three districts ‐ Arghanj Khwah, Khash and Tagab ‐ a joint military operation was launched.

"We started a joint military operation one week ago to clear Tagab district in Badakhshan. Fortunately, we succeeded to clear the district. Eight of the murderous Moslems were killed, 15 maimed and three of them were locked away
Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw!
," the police chief said.

Local officials said the Taliban has now fled to Warduj district after they were pushed back from Tagab.

Meanwhile,
...back at the pound, the little lost dog backed into the corner and showed its teeth. And what big teeth they were!...
a number of Badakhshan residents said Badakhshan’s districts will remain under threat by murderous Moslems until Yamgan and Warduj districts are cleared of the Taliban.

"Taliban will retake the cleared areas if outposts are not established by government forces," said Sher Ali Qasim, a civil society activist in Badakhshan.

"The clearance of other districts will be meaningless unless government clears Yamgan and Warduj districts of Taliban," said Mujtaba, a resident of Badakhshan.

Responding to this call by residents, the police chief said the security forces will start clearing the two districts next month.

"We have an operational plan after Eid. We will clear Yamgan and Warduj districts hopefully," Aqsaee said.

Despite the Taliban having control over Yamgan and Warduj districts; the myrmidon group is active in parts of Badakhshan’s nine districts as well as in parts of PD8 and PD9 of Faizabad city, the bustling provincial capital.

Deaths as suicide bombers hit Shia mosque in Kabul
[Al Jazeera] An attack at a Shia mosque in the Afghan capital of Kabul killed at least four people and maimed eight more on Thursday, security officials said.

Two suspected attackers tried to enter the city's Al Zahra mosque but were blocked by police, setting off a shootout, Interior Ministry front man Najib Danish said.

The attackers then took refuge in the mosque's kitchen before detonating a bomb.

The Islamic State

of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS, also known as ISIS) grabbed credit for the deadly attack via its news agency Amaq.

Among the dead were at least three civilians and one police officer, while four civilians and four coppers were maimed.

The attack happened as mosques around the city were crowded for a night of religious observances as part of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Tora Bora captured? Taliban dispute ISIS claim
[FoxNews] The Islamic State terror network claimed its fighters captured Usama bin Laden’s Tora Bora hideout in eastern Afghanistan, but the Taliban disputed the claim on Thursday.

ISIS released an audio recording on Wednesday saying its signature black flag was flying over the mountain range.

A Taliban spokesman denied ISIS was in control, claiming instead that the Taliban had pushed ISIS back from some territory the rival militants had taken in the area, The New York Times reported.

Meanwhile, a Taliban spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, told The Associated Press the Taliban had pushed ISIS back from some territory the rival militants had taken previously in the Tora Bora area.

Mujahid claimed more than 30 ISIS fighters were killed in the battle. He also added that U.S. airstrike on Taliban positions on Wednesday that killed 11 of its fighters had benefitted ISIS.

Earlier, Afghan officials said that fighting between ISIS and the Taliban, who had controlled Tora Bora, began on Tuesday, but could not confirm that ISIS captured the hideout.

Afghan Defense Ministry’s spokesman, Daulat Waziri did not say if ISIS was in complete control of Tora Bora but said Afghan forces killed five ISIS fighters in the Chaparhar district of eastern Nangarhar province and pushed them out of the region.

The area’s remote location makes it difficult to verify any of the claims.

Somali troops end deadly Al-Shabab restaurant siege
[SHABELLENEWS] Somalia’s security forces have ended a night-long siege by al-Shabaab
... the personification of Somali state failure...
fighters at a popular Mogadishu restaurant where 20 people were taken hostage, police said.

At least 19 people were killed when a car driven by a jacket wallah rammed into the Posh Hotel insouth Mogadishu on Wednesday evening before gunnies rushed into Pizza House, an adjacent restaurant, and took 20 people hostage.

Soldiers surrounded the building and used guns mounted on the backs of vehicles to kill all five attackers, officials said.

The building was secured after dawn on Thursday, said senior Somali police office Mohammed Hussein.

Bodies of five girls and a Syrian man who worked as a chef were found inside the restaurant, said police.

"We are in control of the hotel but it was mostly destroyed by the suicide bomber," Abdi Bashir, a police officer, told Rooters news agency.

Meanwhile,
...back at the pound, the little lost dog had finished eating the rat terrier...
survivors recounted harrowing stories of hiding under tables, as armed attackers continued firing in the restaurant on Wednesday.

Attackers moved from room to room, looking for people, said a survivour.

"I never thought I would have the chance to see the sun again. They were killing people on sight," said Saida Hussein, a university student who survived the attack by hiding behind a large table on the ground floor.
Al Ahram adds:
Many of the 31 victims were killed at point-blank range, Hussein said. Nearly 40 other people were maimed.

Algerian troops kill 2 militants near Malian border
[NEWS.XINHUANET] Algerian counterterrorism troops on Thursday killed two armed Lions of Islam in the southernmost province of Tamenrasset, near the border with Mali, said Algerian Defense Ministry in a statement.

"As part of the fight against terrorism and following a patrol carried out near the province of Tamanrasset, army troops shot down two Lions of Islam in the afternoon of Thursday," said the source.

Two FMPK machine guns, a large amount of ammunition and a four-wheel drive vehicle were retrieved during the operation, specified the source.

"This new operation, which is added to the series of positive results obtained on the ground by the National People's Army forces, shows permanent vigilance and availability of the troops throughout the Algerian territory to thwart any attempt aiming at undermining the security and stability of the country," concluded the statement.

Located in a region plagued by unprecedented security and political instability, Algeria faces ongoing terrorist threats.

UAE Armed Forces say Houthi rebels targeted a medical aid ship off coast of Yemen

...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth.

"The rebel Houthi militias fired a missile at a United Arab Emirates aid ship carrying medical equipment while departing from the Yemeni port of al-Mokha," the General Command of the UAE Armed Forces said in a statement on Thursday.

The attack caused no damage to the vessel, but left one crew member injured, added the General Command, affirming that it is following up and tracking down those behind the attack.

The UAE command reiterated its warning against "the danger posed by the Houthi belligerent activities and arms smuggling on the safety of international navigation in this vital part of the world."

The statement called upon the international community to exercise more pressures on the Houthi militias to comply with UN Security Council Resolution No 2216 on prevention of such "criminal activities."

#1  Am I allowed to mention Islamic Values? Or is that not considered PC here?

Am I racist if I point out that Moslem Values actually are Moslem Values? Or is that too radical a concept for rantburg to allow or Conscience?

Islam is not going to have what we consider normal self evident Values. So if they target a Hospital ship or a Hospital per se...they don't feel any shame or disconnect. They feel perfectly at ease in their Islamic reality with setting up a rocket emplacement next to a Daycare center. They are Moslems.

We expect them to have OUR Values. They are actually Moslems and they don't have our values You can erase this post now for telling you the sky is Blue.

#2  Sorry, Hemingway - but it isn't "Moslem Values". At least not as a primary reason.

Using your simplistic logic, 291 homicides (that's murders - try to follow me here) in Chicago are "OUR values" Baltimore's race to match them? Moslem values. Some guy shooting up a bunch of politicians on a ball field in the glorious state of Virginia? Our, or Moslem values. Two prisoners from that bastion of Southern Values, Georgia, killing two guards and carjacking their way to Tennessee? Whose values.

Sounds ludicrous, Hemingway? Sounds kind of stupid, doesn't it?

Maybe it's something else. Maybe you could come up with an answer if you did some real thinking. If you don't want to think, look at History. Pol Pot and Cambodia is an easy example. The Holocaust is even easier. If you're really stumped or reading is too damn hard, maybe you could ask a cop or an emergency room doc for an answer when they've dealt with a badly beaten toddler. Surely you know a couple - maybe even on friendly terms. Or find a good newspaper reporter and buy 'em a drink.

Or if that sounds like too much work - ask yourself, why the Protestant Irish still hate the Catholic ones and vice versa. Or if that's really hard to do, why, after 150 years, why the US Civil War still lingers, especially in your neck of the woods.

Moslem Values. Right?

Go on, Hemingway. Give it some thought.

#3  Hemingway doesn't do thought. He throws together some salacious text that he thinks we will swallow, hoping to point it out to his progressive friends as an example of how racist and simple-minded we are. He is like that writer who joined the Army and got as far as Kuwait, then wrote purple prose for one of the liberal magazines purporting to show that his comrades in Iraq were vicious simpletons... only it was entirely a figment of his imagination. He was court martialed for it, as I recall, and fired from the magazine as well. I don't remember if his girlfriend was fired as well, though she deserved to be for selling the series to the editor.

Moudasser Taleb was arrested by counter-terrorism officers at Sydney Airport. Taleb, of Middle Eastern background, was known to police for minor matters.

To make it more appealing to Daily Mail readers, the lad's mother, hijab and all, is confined to a wheelchair with multiple sclerosis and thinks he is a good boy who would never do such a thing.

Home Front: WoT
US adds 3 Islamic State group leaders to terrorism blacklist
[MILITARYTIMES] The Trump administration on Thursday added three senior 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....
group to a terrorism blacklist, including the group's leader and chief recruiter in India and a recruiter for attackers who carried out two deadly assaults in Europe.

The State Department and Treasury said the trio have committed or pose a significant risk of committing terrorist attacks that threaten Americans or U.S. national interests. The move adds them to a list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists, freezing any assets they may have in U.S. jurisdictions and barring Americans from any transactions with them.

Authorities in La Belle France and Belgium have identified one of the men, Oussama Atar, as an organizer of both the November 2015 attack in Gay Paree and the March 2016 attack in Brussels that together killed 162 people. The Belgian-Moroccan national is believed to have played a major role in setting up the cell that is blamed for the two strikes.

The designation also applies to Mohammad Armar, who was identified as a leader and head recruiter for the Islamic State in India. The State Department said Armar has recruited dozens of IS sympathizers throughout India who are plotting attacks, acquiring weapons and scouting locations for training camps.

The third man added to the list is Mohammed Al Binali from Bahrain, who has appeared in numerous propaganda videos encouraging fellow Bahrainis, particularly police and soldiers, to join the Islamic State, according to the State Department.

US arrests nearly 200 Iraqi immigrants in massive deportation sweep
It's interesting. Even as President Trump's executive orders pausing immigration from key Moslem countries are stymied in the courts, two things have been happening:

1) the number of those choosing to actually coming to the U.S. -- both legally and illegally -- has reportedly fallen to almost nothing, and

2) repatriation deals have suddenly become possible, allowing those we mistakenly accepted to be sent back.

It's almost as if the executive orders were the first steps of a multifaceted negotiation with the endgame of reducing the number of bad guys in our country, rather than a fixed desire that would be either won or lost. Not to mention the probability that many who previously casually misbehaved in the way of their people are suddenly anxious to be seen as upright, law-abiding citizens.
[NYPost] U.S. immigration authorities have tossed in the slammer

’s travel ban, officials said on Wednesday.

In the Detroit area, 114 Iraqi nationals were arrested over the weekend, and 85 throughout the rest of the country over the past several weeks, Gillian Christensen, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman, said in a statement.

The actions came as part of the Trump administration’s push to increase immigration enforcement and make countries, which have resisted in the past, take back nationals ordered deported from the United States.

The crackdown on Iraqi immigrants colonists followed the U.S. government’s decision to drop Iraq from a list of Moslem-majority nations targeted by a revised version of Trump’s temporary travel ban issued in March.

The overwhelming majority of those arrested had criminal convictions for crimes including murder, rape, assault, kidnapping, burglary, drug trafficking, weapons violations and other offenses, Christensen said.

As of April 17, 2017, there were 1,444 Iraqi nationals with final orders for removal, she said. Since the March 12 agreement with Iraq regarding deportees, eight Iraqi nationals have been removed to Iraq.

Dozens of Iraqi Chaldean Catholics in Detroit were among those targeted in the immigration sweeps, some of whom fear they will be killed if deported to their home country, immigration attorneys and family members said.

"It is very worrisome that ICE has signaled its intention to remove Chaldean Christians to Iraq where their safety not only cannot be guaranteed, but where they face persecution and death for their religious beliefs," Martin Manna, president of the Chaldean Community Foundation, said in a statement on Wednesday.

Kurdish Iraqis also were picked up in Nashville, Tennessee, attorneys, activists and family members said.

At least some of those arrested came to the United States as children, got in trouble and already served their sentences, according to immigration attorneys and activists. Some have lived in the United States so long they no longer speak Arabic.

An Iraqi official previously said Iraqi diplomatic and consular missions would coordinate with U.S. authorities to issue travel documents for the deportees.

Army takes over Mosul’s Old City entrance, IS trapped
[Iraq News] Iraqi government forces managed on Thursday to take over a main entrance to western djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
’s Old City, 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....
Death Eaters’ last refuge in the city, the Joint Operations Command said.

Lt. Gen. Abudl-Amir Yarallah, commander of the JOC’s Nineveh Operations, said in a statement forces had taken over the Bab Sinjar area, effectively severing all routes to the Old City and putting turbans under a consummate siege.

Due to the impassable streets of the Old City, the 9th division’s armored vehicles will stop at besieging the area, leaving the invasion to infantry forces from the army, the Counter-Terrorism Service and the Rapid Response forces, Brig. Gen. Saleh Harz, commander of the 34th brigade of the army’s 9th division, told Almirbad website.

Iraqi commanders have recently said that a few hundred IS fighters remained in the Old City, the group’s last refuge in western Mosul from where the group first declared the establishment of its rule over a third of both Iraq and Syria in 2014.

Iraqi government forces recaptured eastern Mosul in January and pushed towards the western side of the city in mid February.

Forces are also sweeping through neighboring al-Shifa district, an area with major health and medical facilities.

the War Media Cell reported.

"Iraqi jets launched on Thursday several Arclight airstrikes northwest of Haditha lake, destroying two hideouts and killing dozens of snuffies inside," the WMC said in a statement, adding that a weapon stash was also destroyed.

The jets also "launched Arclight airstrikes in Abbassi district in Hawija, which left four hideouts destroyed and several myrmidons, most of whom were foreigners, killed," the statement added.

Hawija, located 55 KM west of Kirkuk, has been held by IS since mid-2014.

Southeast Asia
Philippine troops capture Maute brother in Marawi seige
[Straits Times] Philippine security forces yesterday arrested one of seven brothers behind the Islamist insurgents that have held parts of the southern city of Marawi for more than three weeks.

Mohammad Noaim Maute, described as a trained bomb-maker, was nabbed at a checkpoint in Cagayan de Oro, just after dawn. Maute, said to be an Arabic teacher, was found with a fake Mindanao State University identity card.

Military spokesman Restituto Padilla said, "The subject was involved in bombing incidents in Mindanao previously… He is the youngest of the Maute clan. They have seven children by the matriarch, and he is the youngest."

He said Maute was also involved in the killing of two of six sawmill workers abducted by the militant group in April.

Maute denied that he was a "bomb expert", and said he was a cousin, not a brother, of Omarkhayam and Abdullah Maute.

Most of the other six Maute brothers are believed to still be in Marawi. Their parents were taken into custody last week. The subject was involved in bombing incidents in Mindanao previously. They have seven children by the matriarch, and he is the youngest.

The mother, Romato Maute, also known as Farhana, was charged with rebellion yesterday. Believed to be a financier of the Mautes, she was arrested on June 9 as she was being spirited out of Lanao del Sur province.

Mr Zia Alonto Adiong, a politician helping in rescue and relief efforts, said residents fleeing Marawi had seen dozens of bodies in an area where intense fighting has taken place. Adiong said, "Dead bodies, at least 100, scattered around the encounter area."

The army has said 290 people have been killed in the more than three weeks of fighting - 206 militants, 58 soldiers and 26 civilians.

"They have planned for this for a long time and may have laid caches of arms in certain areas that will sustain them as they move into the interiors when they make a retreat or consolidation," said Brigadier-General Padilla.

Lieutenant-Colonel Jay-Ar Herrera, spokesman for Task Force Marawi, said that soldiers had begun moving into districts held by some 100 to 200 militants. He said, "As you observed, there are no air strikes, so we have neutralized several defensive key positions. In terms of territory, the battlefield right now constitutes 10 per cent of Marawi, specifically in four barangays (districts)," adding that snipers remain a problem.

He said skirmishes were still happening near three bridges that government forces had secured.

Two NPA leaders surrender in Luzon
[Manila Bulletin] Two ranking members of the New People’s Army surrendered to Philippine government forces last week, based on a belated report.

Lieutenant Colonel Eugenio Julio Osias said the identities of the names of the rebels were temporarily withheld for security reasons. He said, "Through our persistent efforts, we were able to convince the NPA rebels to surrender."

Both surrenderees were team leader of the NPA's Kilusang Larangang Guerilya (KLG) Montes that operates in the tri-boundaries of Abra, Mountain Province and Ilocos Sur.

One of the surrenderees said that what drove him to give up was the ‘purposeless’ battles and wars which have affected the lives of thousands of young people for the past five decades.

Village official gunned down in southern Thailand
[Bangkok Post] An assistant village leader in Pattani province was gunned down about 100 meters from his home after finishing security duty on Thursday morning.

Local police were informed of the shooting at about 7:30am. They found the body of Mahamaporee Bato, the assistant chief of Ban Pratu Chang village, in Yarang district.

Witnesses said Mahamaporee was riding his motorcycle back home after finishing his security duty at the house of a local administrator. About 100 meters from his home, four people on two motorcycles rode up from behind and opened fire. After he collapsed onto the road, he was shot in the head at point-blank range and died instantly.

Police attributed the murder to the insurgency. Two years ago the assistant village head supervising security affairs was ambushed and shot in the leg after finishing his security duty.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Iranian boat shines laser at US aircraft in Strait of Hormuz
Playing little dominance games.
[Ynet] An Iranian naval patrol boat shined a laser at a US Marine Corps helicopter flying over the Strait of Hormuz in what officials said was an unsafe encounter.
I say we go with the BB-62 option.
US Navy Cmdr. Bill Urban said Wednesday that the Iranian vessel also turned its spotlight on two Navy ships that were moving through the strait on Tuesday. Urban, a US Fifth Fleet front man, said the Iranian boat came within 800 yards of the USS Bataan, an amphibious assault ship, and scanned it from bow to stern with the spotlight. It also shined the light on the USS Cole, a guided missile destroyer.

The Marine CH-53E Super Stallion heavy lift helicopter automatically fired flares in response to the laser. No one was injured and there was no damage to the ships.

A third American vessel, the USNS Washington Chambers cargo ship, was accompanying the others but was not affected.

Urban said the action was considered unsafe because "illuminating helicopters with lasers at night is dangerous as it creates a navigational hazard that can impair vision and can be disorienting to pilots using night vision goggles.

Jihadist militants attack Kurdish forces in northwest Syria
[ALMASDARNEWS] Supported by The Sick Man of Europe Turkey

’s military, Syrian Islamist groups launched on Wednesday an offensive against Kurdish villages in the district of Afrin, northwest of Aleppo province.

Islamist Death Eaters of Ahrar al-Sham
...a Syria jihadi group made up of Islamists and salafists, not that there's that much difference, formed into a brigade. They make up the main element of the Islamic Front but they don't profess adoration of al-Qaeda and they've been fighting (mainly for survival) against the Islamic State. Their leadership was wiped out at a single blow by a suicide kaboom at a crowded basement meeting in September, 2014...

Front) attacked the villages of Basoufan and Bashmere in the Sherawa area of Afrin.

The radical groups shelled the two villages with dozens of mortar shells, followed by Turkish artillery bombardment on the same villages.

"The shelling led to the destruction of several residential buildings, causing the death and injury of dozens of civilians," a local media activist told ARA News.

Afrin district, also known as Efrîn, is held by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The bombardment was reportedly launched from the nearby Samaan citadel (Saint Simon Citadel), that has been recently taken by Turkey-backed Islamist groups as a base for their operations against the YPG in Aleppo province.

It was not immediately clear how many people were killed in the bombardment. In the meantime, local rescue teams continued to search for victims under the rubble.

[ALMASDARNEWS] Scores of ISIS turbans have been killed and injured as a huge kaboom rocked one of the group’s ammunition depot in Deir Ezzor amid continuous festivities with the government forces.
