Libyan eastern air force air-attacks Derna suburbs for second day in a row
[Libya Observer] Dignity Operation MiG23 warplanes conducted an Arclight airstrike on Hajaj heights district on the east coast of Derna in eastern Libya.

The Arclight airstrike led to material damage in people's properties as the bombs hit an area nearby residential areas. No casualties were reported, local sources from Derna said.

A delegation from the High Council of National Reconciliation announced that it had delayed a visit to Derna after Haftar told them to do so to leave a space for holding a meeting between Dignity Operation and Derna Shura Council to review the conditions for a truce.

However,
the way to a man's heart remains through his stomach...
later after that, the delegation was assaulted by pro-Haftar gang as they were in an al-Bayda hotel, which obliged the delegates to leave to 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...
Meanwhile,
...back at the palazzo, Don Smilzo looked for an avenue of escape. The only window opened a hundred feet above the moat. The nearest of the hired assassins hold a bloody axe.
The window was looking better all the time....

the front man of Derna Shura Council, Mohammed al-Mansouri, denied the news circulated on media outlets about the communication between them and pro-Dignity Operation military and political parties in order to disband the council and surrender its fighters and their weapons.

"That news is untrue and is being promoted by proDignity Operation parties for different intentions." al-Mansouri remarked.

Earlier, the House of Representatives' member, Khairallah al-Turkawi, said Derna Shura Council fighters have collapsed and are willing to surrender themselves and their weapons to Dignity Operation, which has been laying a tightened siege on the city for about two years.

Kuwait accuses Hezbollah of training Shias suspected of forming 'terror cell'
[DAWN] Kuwait has protested to Leb over the alleged training by Hezbollah of 21 Shias that were convicted on charges of forming a "terror cell" in the Sunni-majority emirate last month.

It demanded that pressure be put on the Shia bully boy group, which has ministers in the Lebanese government, to ensure there was no repetition.

The protest follows Kuwait's expulsion of 15 Iranian diplomats on Thursday over Tehran's alleged links to those convicted.

The letter delivered by Kuwait's ambassador in Beirut late on Friday said the emirate's supreme court had found that "Hezbollah took part in contacts, coordinating meetings, paid funds and provided arms and military training in Leb" for the defendants.

It called on Leb to take "necessary measures to curb these disgraceful practices" by Hezbollah as it is a partner in the government, ambassador Abdulaal al-Quenai told the official KUNA news agency.

Saudi Police Kill Three Alleged 'Terrorists'
[AnNahar] Soddy Arabia

's police have rubbed out three men wanted for "terrorist" attacks in the country's Shiite-majority east, the interior ministry of the Sunni-ruled kingdom said Friday.

The men -- two Saudis and a Bahraini -- were killed in an exchange of gunfire with police in the city of Saihat in the district of Qatif on July 14, the ministry said.

Police seized three machine guns, a pistol, ammunition and more than 10 kilos (22 pounds) of explosives, official news agency SPA reported a ministry front man as saying.

He said the men were wanted for their involvement in deadly attacks against the police, as well as an attack on a vehicle used to transport cash, abductions and weapons trafficking.

Al-Jazirah newspaper on July 15 reported the death of one of the Saudis, Jaafar al-Mobireek, killed in Qatif, which has seen a string of attacks on security forces in recent weeks.

Most of Saudi Arabia's Shiites live in the oil-rich east, where they have long complained of marginalization.

The area has been rocked by unrest since 2011, when Shiite protests erupted to demand equality in the Gulf kingdom.

Authorities have blamed the violence on "terrorists" and narcos.

German refugee office falling behind in processing asylum requests
22 July
[DW] Employees at Germany's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) are failing to meet set targets for the number of asylum requests that must be processed per day. Workers managed to process an average of just 2.5 asylum requests per day during the first week of July, well below the 3.5 target set by the office, according to German media reports on Saturday. In total, around 13,000 requests were processed during the first week of July.

Earlier this year it was revealed that the BAMF was dealing with a backlog of almost 500,000 unprocessed requests. While the number of people who entered Germany seeking refuge in 2016 was markedly lower than the year before, many people who arrived during the 2015 migrant crisis only made their applications the following year.

'Enormous rise' in girls threatened with genital mutilation in Germany: report
18 July
[TheLocal.de] There are currently more than 13,000 girls in Germany whose families plan to have them circumcised - an increase of 4,000 over last year - women's rights group Terre des Femmes claims.

"Due to the arrival of migrants from countries such as Eritrea, Somalia and Iraq, we have recorded a huge increase in the number of affected women and threatened girls," Terre des Femmes spokeswoman Charlotte Weil told DPA on Tuesday.

Weil, who has authored a report on unrecorded female genital mutilation (FGM) in Germany, estimated that there are 58,000 women in the country who have been victims of female circumcision. The mutilation of the female sexual organs is practised in many African countries, as well as a few in Asia. It is illegal in Germany.

"We don't know of any cases where a girl was mutilated in Germany. It either takes place on a holiday back in their homeland, or during a visit to a practitioner in a city such as Paris or Amsterdam," said Weil.

[DAWN] The Pakistain Army has cleared the "highest and craggiest" mountaintop near the Pak-Afghan border, killing "many" murderous Moslems and forcing others to flee to Afghanistan, a statement issued by the army's media wing said Saturday.

Baghdad Bomb and Bullet Bulletin
IED attack wounds 3 kops

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Three civilians were wounded in an IED blast northern Baghdad, a police source has said.

“A bomb, placed on the side of the highway at al-Taji region, north of Baghdad, exploded on Friday leaving three civilians injured,” the source told AlSumaria News.

“Security troops arrived at the accident spot and transferred the injured to a nearby hospital for treatment,” the source, who asked to be unnamed, added.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State Sunni extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.

More than 700 Iraqis were killed and wounded during the month of June as result of violence and armed conflicts, according to a monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI) which excludes security members deaths. Baghdad ranked the second place with 22 deaths and 88 injuries.

Bombings and armed attacks are seen on on almost a daily basis against security members, paramilitary groups and civilians since the Iraqi government launched a wide-scale campaign to retake IS-occupied areas in 2016.

According to observers, IS is believed to constitute a security threat even after the group’s defeat at its main havens across Iraqi provinces.

In May, Hadi al-Amiri, head of Badr Organization, which works under the umbrella of the PMUs said troops reached to Iraqi-Syrian borders.

The target behind expanding the control of borders, according to PMUs officials, is to prevent infiltration of of IS militants from Syria to Iraq.

Previously, the troops liberated the remaining villages in the vicinity of Qairawan, a main Islamic State bastion which links between Tal Afar town and the Syrian borders, and Baaj, after the troops announced full liberation of Qairawan.

PMUs, an alliance of more than 60 mostly Shia militias, are recognized by the government as a national force under the Prime Minister’s command.

Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi has recently vowed to keep the PMUs for several years and announced increase of their budget to raise the fighters’ wages.

The group has been actively engaged in the Iraqi government’s war against IS, and has recently claimed full control over Iraq’s borders with Syria, but has been operating only on ground with air support from the Iraqi army warplanes.

More Mosul Moslem Mayhem


3 ISIS Big Turbans die in firefight with Iraqi militia

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) Three senior Islamic State leaders were killed in Tal Afar town, west of Mosul, the Shia-led paramilitary troops said on Friday.

A statement by Saraya al-Jihad militia, affiliated to al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Units) said troops “identified the bodies of IS members, who were killed on Thursday while infiltrating behind the troops in Tal al-Zalat region, west of Mosul.”

The militants included “Abu Iman, in charge of Islamic police, Abu Abd Zu’aizei’a, in charge of recruitment, and Naser abdullah Khedr al-Badrany,” the statement said. “They were in charge of planning to attack the PMUs from the back.”

Despite declaring victory over IS, the group have reportedly carried out attacks against security forces over the past few days.

Earlier this month, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi congratulated Iraqi forces and citizens on the victory over IS militants who had held the second largest Iraqi city since 2014. More than 25000 militants were killed throughout the campaign.

The town of Tal Afar and few surrounding areas are still held by the group in Nineveh province.

Diyala Devastation Digest


Kop's wife wounded in bombing attack near Baqubah

Baqubah(IraqiNews.com) A policeman’s wife was injured in a bomb blast that exploded in western Baqubah, a local source from Diyala said.

Speaking to AlSumaria News on Saturday, the source said “an IED placed outside a house of a policeman in al-Jahiza region, west of Baqubah, exploded in the afternoon, leaving the policeman’s wife wounded and the house damaged.”

IS holds pivotal regions that link between each of Diyala, Salahuddin and Kirkuk, posing threats to the liberated regions.

Some areas in Diyala have seen a surge over the past months in bombings and armed attacks against security members, paramilitary groups and civilians, which urge Iraqi forces to prevent the militants infiltration between Salahuddin and Kirkuk provinces, especially the regions stretching along Hamreen mountains and Al-Azeem town.

Violence in the country has surged further with the emergence of Islamic State Sunni extremist militants who proclaimed an “Islamic Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria in 2014.

More than 700 Iraqis were killed and wounded during June as result of violence and armed conflicts, according to a monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI), which excludes security members’ deaths. Baghdad ranked the second place with 22 deaths and 88 injuries.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Palestinians clash with soldiers near Halamish stabber’s village
[IsraelTimes] Earlier, IDF mapped family home of 19-year-old terrorist Omar al-Abed in preparation for its likely demolition.

Dozens of Paleostinian rioters on Saturday hurled stones at IDF soldiers near the central West Bank village of Kaubar, home to the terrorist who stabbed three Israelis to death a day earlier in the settlement of Halamish, close to the city of Ramallah.

The soldiers responded to the violent protests with riot dispersal means. There were no immediate reports of injuries

Earlier Saturday, the IDF raided the home of the Paleostinian terrorist who murdered the three Halamish family members, and tossed in the clink
Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw!
his brother. Troops were searching the village of Kaubar for weaponry and suspects.

They also mapped the family home of 19-year-old Omar al-Abed, in preparation for its likely demolition. An army official told Ynet the terrorist’s parents were known to be affiliated with the Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", terror group. Hamas hailed the attack late Friday as "heroic."

Security forces have enacted a closure on Abed’s village, and only humanitarian cases were being allowed through as the operations inside continued.

Abed’s brother Monir, 21, was arrested. Officials said they suspected Monir aided his brother in carrying out the attack. Security forces said they were looking for any additional suspects in the Halamish attack.

Also Saturday, the army said shots were fired overnight at a synagogue in the settlement of Avnei Hefetz in Samaria, west of Tulkarm. Residents reported hearing gunfire overnight. A search conducted in the morning revealed a bullet hole in a wall of the synagogue. The military was investigating.

The army also said it would further boost forces in the West Bank, in addition to the reinforcements already provided due to tensions surrounding new Temple Mount security checks.

Halamish terrorist was arrested 3 months ago by PA for allegedly planning attacks

[IsraelTimes] The Paleostinian terrorist who stabbed to death three members of an Israeli family while they were eating Shabbat dinner at home Friday night, was tossed in the calaboose
... anything you say can and will be used against you, whether you say it or not...
three months ago by security forces of Paleostinian Authority President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
... a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial...
, his uncle said Saturday.

Ibrahim al-Abed said his nephew Omar al-Abed spent two weeks in PA detention and was violently interrogated about alleged plans to attack Israelis before he was released.

The terrorist’s father said that his son was upset over the loss of Paleostinian lives following violent festivities over escalating tensions at the Temple Mount and wanted to protect the "honor" of the Jerusalem holy site.

"The honor of Moslems is only the Haram," Mohammed al-Abed said. "If it’s gone, the Moslems’ honor is gone. This was the motive for my son."

Al-Abed said in a pre-attack Facebook post that he expected to be killed in the attack. He wrote that he wanted his body to be covered by a banner of the Hamas, the well-beloved offspring of the Moslem Brotherhood, terror group and a photo of Abbas’s predecessor, Yasser Arafat.

Israel has repeatedly accused Abbas and his Paleostinian Authority of permitting anti-Israeli incitement in the public Paleostinian discourse.

Palestinian teen with a razor blade arrested in Hebron

a Paleostinian teenager in the West Bank city of Hebron on Saturday night after finding a razor blade hidden on his person, police said.

The 17-year-old was walking through a checkpoint near the Tomb of the Patriarchs holy site when he "aroused the suspicions" of the officers stationed there. They pulled him aside and searched him more thoroughly, finding a razor blade tucked in his clothes, "with which he planned -- according to assessments -- to carry out a terror attack," police said in a statement.

"The suspect was arrested for further investigation by security forces," the statement said.

Palestinian killed in West Bank clashes over Temple Mount
[Ynet] Israeli Arabs and Paleostinians clash with Israeli security forces in east Jerusalem neighborhoods and elsewhere in West Bank; masked men block roads, burn tires, launch fireworks and throw Molotov cocktails and rocks; At-Tur resident: 'We're ready to fight to the death.'
Given the report yesterday that West Bank president Mahmoud Abbas had allocated $25 million to support this kind of activity, it's no surprise there is such enthusiasm today.
A Paleostinian man was killed during festivities in the West Bank on Saturday night, the fourth to die this weekend in violent protests against Israel's decision to set up metal detectors at the entrances to the Temple Mount, following a deadly terror attack at the site.
According to The Times of Israel, he died when the Molotov cocktail he was holding went off in his hand prematurely.
A 24-year-old Paleostinian was killed in uncertain circumstances in the village of al-Eizariya east of Jerusalem.
According to the same article, he had been wounded and subsequently died of his injuries.
Following a relatively quiet day, violence resumed late Saturday near the epicenter of the current crisis in the Old City of Jerusalem. After hundreds of Moslem worshippers defiantly held their evening prayers outside the Jerusalem holy site, resuming their protest against security measures Israel imposed after a deadly attack there, festivities unfolded with police firing tear gas and water cannons to disperse protesters.

Violent festivities raged in Jerusalem's Old City by the Lions' Gate on Saturday evening--with protesters throwing stones, bottles and other objects at security forces--as rioting continued elsewhere in the capital and in various hotspots in the West Bank. On route 444 near Tayibe rioters burned tires. Protesters set a tire on fire in Kafr Kanna as well and then pelted police forces that arrived at the scene with stones. There were also festivities Saturday afternoon and evening in Qalandiya, At-Tur, Shuafat, Isawiya and in the village of Kabor, the home of the terrorist who killed an Israeli grandfather and his two adult children in the nearby settlement of Halamish on Friday.

Rioters also threw stones and glass bottles at Israeli forces near the Mount of Olives. An IDF officer was lightly hurt when a stone hurt his upper body during festivities in Kafr Qaddum in the Samaria region of the West Bank.

The police also reported that four other suspects from the Old City were jugged
Keep yer hands where we can see 'em, if yez please!
overnight, including a young man, for participating in Friday's disturbances.

Following the deaths of the three Paleostinians on Friday, a general strike was declared in east Jerusalem neighborhoods, and a partial strike was declared in the Old City.

Demonstrations were also taking place in Arab communities throughout Israel, among them the Arab city of Tayibe, with another demonstration planned there for Saturday evening. Additional demonstrations are planned in the Arab cities of Nazareth, Umm al-Fahm and Qalansawe.

The Paleostinian Red Islamic Thingy said 41 Paleostinians in total were taken to hospitals or clinics with injures from live ammunition, rubber bullets and beatings Friday. About 150 Paleostinians were treated for tear gas inhalation. The IDF and the Border Police also arrested 17 people in the West Bank, as dozens of Paleostinians were maimed in several incidents on the Gazoo Strip border, with participants burning tires and throwing rocks at the fence and IDF forces.
In conclusion, fewer than 200 were injured, not the 400 the Arabs initially claimed.

Hezbollah makes gains in Syria-Lebanon border assault
[Al Jazeera] Syrian troops and members of Leb's Hezbollah have advanced against Syrian rebels on the second day of an assault to drive them from their last foothold along the Syria-Leb border, pro-Damascus media reported.

The government-controlled Syrian Central Military Media (SCMM) said Shia Hezbollah fighters and Syrian troops captured several strategic hills on Saturday in areas between the Lebanese town of Arsal and the Syrian village of Fleeta.

The offensive began on Friday and targets Sunni Moslem fighters from the former Nusra Front, a group that was aligned to al Qaeda.

It is now known as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and controls the barren zone of Juroud Arsal in the Qalamoun Mountains.
