Taliban continues attacks in Paktia
Taliban insurgents have again attacked Janikhail district of eastern Paktia province on Tuesday night and clashes with the security forces continue, security source said on Wednesday.

The clashes took place after the insurgents attacked security check posts in the district and “reinforcements are needed urgently,” according to the source.

Janikhail fell into hands of the insurgents two weeks ago but security forces were able to recapture the district on Friday.

Before the latest attacks, local officials had said that the lack of sufficient forces last week led to the collapse of strategic district and have called on the central government, particularly the Ministry of Interior (MoI), to address the shortcomings of police in the volatile region.

Police officials in Paktia were warned that if more forces were not dispatched to the area, there is the possibility that Janikhail would once again fall to the Taliban insurgents.

However, the source said that to date no reinforcement have been deployed to the district.

Taliban release 235 civilians held in Afghan village
More on this story from yesterday.
[DAWN] Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
murderous Moslems released 235 civilians held since seizing control of an area in northern Sari Pul province five days ago, provincial officials confirmed on Wednesday.

Zabi Amani, front man for the provincial governor, said the civilians were released after negotiations between the Taliban and tribal elders. The murderous Moslems were still holding an unknown number of civilians, he said.

Most of the civilians are staying in area mosques and some are with their relatives in the city and provincial officials are trying to provide them food and other necessities until finding a solution for the problem, he said.

Fifty two civilians including women and kiddies have been killed in Mirzawalang in Sayad district since murderous Moslems took control of the area, Amani said.

Qari Yusouf Ahmadi, a Taliban front man, grabbed credit for seizing the area, but he denied that non-combatants were killed in Mirzawalang.

According to provincial officials, this is the first time that Taliban and bully boy Islamic State

Hazaras are mostly Shiite, but they're of Mongol descent, so they're both religiously and racially impure.

Africa North
Top Tunisian terrorist Titzup
TUNIS: Tunisian armed forces killed two Islamist militants including a senior commander in a mountain raid near the western border with Algeria late on Tuesday, security sources said.

“Two terrorists were killed and weapons were seized during an ambush that National Guard units set up against a terrorist group,” in Kasserine region, National Guard spokesman Col. Major Khelifa Chibani told state news agency TAP.

Tunisian radio station Mosaique FM identified the commander as Mourad Chaieb, the Algerian leader of Okba Bin Nafaa, a group that has skirmished for years with security forces in Tunisia’s mountainous interior.

Its members are mainly aligned with Al-Qaeda’s north African branch, Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, which has a presence over the border in eastern Algeria. Some fighters have switched their loyalty to Islamic State.

Chaieb is a brother of the former leader of the group, Khaled Chaieb, who was killed by security forces two years ago.

Tunisia has been on high alert since 2015, when Islamic State gunmen killed dozens of foreign tourists in two attacks at a museum in the capital, Tunis, and on a beach in the resort city of Sousse.

The country also faces a potential threat from Tunisian militants returning from abroad. More than 3,000 are thought to have left to fight for jihadist groups in Syria, Iraq and Libya over the past four years.

Arabia
Yemeni forces attack Soddy forces in Taiz
[AlManar] The Yemeni army and popular committees managed on Wednesday to strike the sites of the Saudi-led mercenaries in Yakhtal area in Taiz, inflicting heavy losses upon them.

The Yemeni forces also struck Saudi military sites near Mesyal and in several other area.

Yemen has been since March 2015 under a brutal aggression by Saudi-led coalition. Thousands of Yemenis have been injured and martyred in Saudi-led strikes, with the vast majority of them are civilians.

The coalition has been also imposing a blockade on the impoverished country’s ports and airports as a part of his aggression which is aimed at restoring power to fugitive former president Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi.

However, the revolutionary forces of Ansarullah and the popular committees have been heroically confronting the aggression with all means.

50 refugees drowned off the coast of Shabwa
JEDDAH: A human smuggler, in charge of a boat, forced more than 120 Somali and Ethiopian migrants into the pitching sea on Wednesday as they approached the coast of Shabwa, a Yemeni governorate along the Arabian Sea, the Internation Organization of Migratgion (IOM) said.

The migrants had been hoping to reach countries in the Gulf via Yemen, the UN migration agency said.

Shortly after the tragedy, staff from IOM found the shallow graves of 29 migrants on a beach in Shabwa, during a routine patrol. The dead had been buried rapidly by those who survived the smuggler’s deadly actions. IOM is working closely with the International Committee of the Red Cross to ensure appropriate care for the deceased migrants’ remains.

IOM’s medical staff also provided urgent care to the 27 surviving migrants, both females and males, who had remained on the beach. IOM provided initial health checks and assistance, including food, water and other emergency relief. Some of the survivors had already left the beach before being assisted. 22 migrants are reportedly still missing and unaccounted for. The approximate average age of the passengers on the boat was 16.

The migrants had been hoping to reach countries in the Gulf via Yemen.
“The survivors told our colleagues on the beach that the smuggler pushed them to the sea, when he saw some ‘authority types’ near the coast,” explained Laurent de Boeck, the IOM Yemen Chief of Mission. “They also told us that the smuggler has already returned to Somalia to continue his business and pick up more migrants to bring to Yemen on the same route.

This is shocking and inhumane. The suffering of migrants on this migration route is enormous. Too many young people pay smugglers with the false hope of a better future,” continued de Boeck.

Since January 2017 to date, IOM estimates that around 55,000 migrants left the Horn of Africa to come to Yemen, most with the aim of trying to find better opportunities in the Gulf countries. More than 30,000 of those migrants are under the age of 18 from Somalia and Ethiopia, while a third are estimated to be female.

This journey is especially hazardous during the current windy season in the Indian Ocean. Smugglers are active in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, offering fake promises to vulnerable migrants. IOM and its partners operate across the region to support these migrants and provide lifesaving assistance to those who find themselves abused or stranded along the route.

Britain
Gang convicted of sex offences against vulnerable girls in England
[AlAhram] A gang of 18 people has been found guilty of trafficking and sexually abusing vulnerable teenage girls and young women for several years in northern England, prosecutors said on Wednesday, in the latest shocking case of its kind in Britannia.

The men raped or assaulted the victims after drugging them or threatening them with violence at specially-convened "parties" ‐ often referred to as "sessions" ‐ where they were supplied with drugs and alcohol.

Some were so inebriated they were abused while unconscious.

The offenders were predominantly Asian and aged in their 30s and 40s, raising echoes of a number of similar cases in Britannia which led to accusations the authorities had feared to get involved in case they were accused of racism.

"There has been no political correctness here," said Northumbria Police Chief Constable Steve Ashman. "These are criminals and there has been no hesitation in arresting them and targeting them using all the means at our disposal."

"It is for individual communities to ask themselves whether they are doing all they can to eradicate such attitudes and behaviour."

A major inquiry into historical child sex abuse, one of the largest and most expensive ever undertaken in Britannia, began in February and is due to last five years.
Prosecutors said the gang, 17 men and one woman, had targeted 13 white girls and women, aged from 15 to their early 20s, in the city of Newcastle in northwest England between 2010 and 2014. The offenders were found guilty following four trials, the last of which concluded on Tuesday.

Three have been nabbed
Keep yer hands where we can see 'em, if yez please!
and the others are awaiting sentence.

Operation Sanctuary
Ashman said the wider police investigation into sexual exploitation in the area, known as Operation Sanctuary, was the largest and most intricate operation his force had ever undertaken. In total officers had placed in durance vile
Drop the gat, Rocky, or you're a dead 'un!
461 people, leading to 93 convictions, he said.

"Most of the offenders are not white. They are from a really diverse section so we have people from Bangladesh, from Pakistain, from Iran, from Iraq, people who are Kurdish, Ottoman Turkish, Albanian, eastern European," he said.

Ashman also defended the decision, heavily criticised by a child protection charity, to pay a convicted child rapist about 10,000 pounds to act as an informant, saying he had helped police to prevent and detect serious crimes.

Newcastle City Council said more than 700 victims had been identified as part of Operation Sanctuary.

"We do not believe that what we have uncovered in Newcastle is unique," said Pat Ritchie, the council's chief executive. "Sadly, there is evidence of sexual exploitation in just about every other town and city in the country and anyone who says they do not have it are not looking for it."

Britannia has been rocked by a series of child sex abuse scandals in recent years, the most shocking taking place in the northern town of Rotherham where a 2014 report concluded that as many as 1,400 children were sexually abused by gangs of mainly Asian men over a 16-year period.

A major inquiry into historical child sex abuse, one of the largest and most expensive ever undertaken in Britannia, began in February and is due to last five years.

Death Eaters, US prosecutors said on Tuesday.

Nelash Das, 25, of Landover Hills, was jugged

by federal agents in September 2016 as he was preparing to attack a US military service member.

He was accompanied by a person who was a paid FBI informant, court records show.

Nelash, a Bangladeshi citizen who is a legal US resident, was indicted for attempting to provide support to the Islamic State from October 2015 to September 2016, the Justice Department said in a statement.

The statement and the indictment gave no details about the charge of attempting to murder an agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Nelash also was indicted on a firearms offense.

Officials were not immediately available to comment.

The three-count indictment supersedes a charge filed shortly after his arrest.

Nelash told the informant that he was committed to attacking a military service member, adding, "That’s my goal in life," according to an October 2016 affidavit.

Nelash remains in jug and if convicted faces up to life in prison. His attorney, federal public defender Julie Stelzig, did not respond to requests for comment.

It serves as a general command center for favored turban groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad, tries to influence the politix of neighboring countries, and carries out a (usually) low-level war against India in Kashmir...
Police sources said it appeared to be a case of murder.

7 arrested in raid on Karachi seminary suspected of facilitating TTP
[DAWN] Sindh Police's Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) on Wednesday conducted a search operation in a Bloody Karachi
...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous...
seminary allegedly linked with the outlawed Tehrik-e-Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
Pakistain (TTP) and detained seven persons for interrogation, CTD Senior Superintendent Police Omar Shahid Hamid said Tuesday.

Speaking to the press, the CTD official said that a team, along with district administration and district police, had conducted a search operation in the al-Kareem Islamic Academy located in Karachi's SITE area.

Shahid claimed that the seminary had been established by Mufti Shakir, a "dangerous terrorist and TTP commander".

"Mufti Shakir is responsible for a number of police murders in District Central and West in 2013-14, and is suspected of involvement in the murder of Police Superintendent Chaudhry Aslam," added the officer.

Mufti Shakir was revealed to be the criminal mastermind behind a group that was "neutralised" by the CTD on August 7 after three suspected holy warriors were killed in an encounter in the Machhar Colony area of the city.

"The killed holy warriors had been planning large-scale attacks in Karachi," Hamid claimed.

"He [Mufti Shakir] is also suspected to be behind at least one group that is involved in police killings in Karachi," he said.

Four coppers were bumped off in an attack in the SITE area in June, while July also saw at least two deadly attacks on police in the metropolis.

Iraq
More Mosul Moslem Mayhem


ISIS leader struck by mortar attack

Tal Afar (IraqiNews.com) An Islamic State leader was killed, along with his companion by a mortar missile in Tal Afar town, west of Mosul, a local source from Nineveh was quoted saying.

“IS leader in charge of the the defense lines, who is an Iraqi national, was killed along with his companion as a mortar missile was shot while inspecting some of the group’s checkpoints,” the source told AlSumaria News on Wednesday.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the source added “IS established several defense lines in Tal Afar to confront the security troops and the pro-government Popular Mobilization Units over the past few months after losing control on the Tal Afar airport.”

An Iraqi army official was quoted as saying on Tuesday that seventeen IS militants, including leaders, were killed in artillery shelling in the town. Earlier on the day, news reports said that army’s ninth armored division arrived to boundaries of the town ahead of anticipated battle to free it from IS.

Defense Ministry declared, earlier this week, conclusion of arrangements ahead of military invasion of the town. An army official was quoted as saying that an army division was ordered to leave Mosul toward Tal Afar within preparations to retake the town, which has been set as the next target of operations after victory was declared in Mosul on July 10.

ISIS shifts forces in Tal Afar

Tal Afar (IraqiNews.com) Islamic State began evacuating the so-called ‘security squares’, which the group established after gaining control on Tal Afar town, a local source said.

Speaking to AlSumaria News, the source said, “the frequent shelling on IS headquarters and targeting of rest houses of prominent leaders urged the group to begin evacuation of the ‘security squares’ established in the wake of controlling the towin in 2014.”

The squares, according to the source, “is a tactic employed by the group to enhance its control on Tal Afar through opening headquarters that are surrounded by houses for the members’ families.”

The source, who preferred anonymity, added that “evacuation of these squares is an evidence that the group is aware of its loss in the battle, thus it tries reducing the losses to transfer the members and their families to areas far away from the shelling.

Earlier on the day, an IS leader in charge of the defense lines was killed alog with his companion by a mortar missile in the town.

Iraqi kops shoot ISIS judge in Mosul

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) Iraqi Federal Police forces killed on Wednesday a senior Islamic State judge in a raid in western Mosul’s Old City as troops continue to comb the city for remnant cells.

Federal Police chief Shaker Jawdat said in statements that troops killed Abdul-Sattar Mohamed Ali, aka Abi al-Hakam al-Aawar, when they raided a basement he was hiding at in the Old City district.

2 ISIS members die in IED attack near Shirqat

Shirqat (IraqiNews.com) An Islamic State leader was killed along with his brother in an IED blast, north of Salahuddin, a local source said on Wednesday.

“An IS member in charge of one of the security committees in the western coast of Shirqat town was killed along with his brother as a bomb planted under his vehicle exploded near his house,” the source, who asked to remain anonymous, told AlSumaria News.

The source blamed the murder of several leaders and members of the group in western Shirqat over the past few months on presence of opponents of the group and infighting among the militants.

On Tuesday, an IS leader known as abu Dajana al-Muhajir, in charge of the group’s intelligence in the so-called ‘Al-Jabal State’, located between Salahuddin and Diyala provinces, was killed in an armed attack in Shirqat.

At least 170 IS militants were reportedly killed earlier this week in airstrikes launched by the Iraqi army jets in the town.

In September, Iraqi army said its forces recaptured the western coast of the town, located south of Mosul lies on the west bank of the Tigris river, after being surrounded for months by Iraqi troops and the pro-government Shi’ite militias. The eastern coast of Shirqat, is still under the IS control.

Pivotal regions that link between each of Diyala, Salahuddin and Kirkuk, are still held by the militants posing threats to the liberated regions. IS havens are expected to be targeted by the Iraqi government, after security achieved victory in Mosul, the group’s biggest stronghold in Iraq.

Iraqi militia man die in IED attack in Baghdad


Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) An improvised explosive device (IED) exploded near a house of al-Hashd al-Ashaeri (Tribal Mobilization Forces) fighter north of the capital Baghdad, according to Ikhnews.

A source from local police told Ikhnews that the explosion caused material damage and no casualties were reported.

“A security force cordoned off the explosion scene and carried out search and raid operations in the region,” he 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.

Bombings and armed attacks are seen 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.

More than 500 Iraqis were killed and injured during the month of July due to violence and armed conflicts, according to a monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq (UNAMI).

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Dozens of Islamic State (IS) militants were killed as Iraqi Air Force bombed six headquarters in Al-Qa’im town, west of Anbar, the War Media Cell (WMC) said on Wednesday.

“Iraqi Air Force warplanes have conducted airstrikes targeting six headquarters in the town of Al-Qa’im,” WMC said in a statement.

“Several IS elements were killed in the airstrike as they were holding a meeting in one of the destroyed headquarters,” the statement added.

IS has held the towns of Qaim, Rawa and Annah, on Anbar’s borders with Syria, posing threats to the liberated regions. IS havens are expected to be targeted by the Iraqi government, after security achieved victory in Mosul, the group’s biggest stronghold in Iraq.

10 ISIS Turbans Tango Uniform in airstrikes near Rawa


Anbar (IraqiNews.com) Ten Islamic State militants were killed in an airstrike in western Anbar, Jazeera Operations Command announced.

“The U.S.-led coalition shelled IS rest houses and two booby-trapped vehicles in the towns of Anah and Rawa,” Maj.Gen. Qassim al-Mohammadi, commander of the Jazeera Operations, told AlSumaria News on Wednesday.

“The shelling left ten militants killed,” Mohammadi added.

On Sunday, an army source was quoted saying that coalition jets bombed the group’s so-called Hisbah (vigilantes) office in Anah, west of Anbar.

Fighter jets from the Iraqi army and the international coalition regularly pound IS locations in the province.

Anbar’s western towns of Anah, Qaim and Rawa are still held by the extremist group since 2014, when it occupied one third of Iraq to proclaim a self-styled Islamic Caliphate. Iraqi troops were able to return life back to normal in the biggest cities of Anbar including Fallujah, Ramadi and others after recapturing them.

Lt.Gen Abdul-Amir Yarallah, commander of the Nineveh Operations, ordered to besiege IS havens in western Anbar preparing to invade them, a military source said in late July.

Iraqi fighter jets reportedly dropped millions of leaflets informing locals that liberation offensives for the province were nearing.

Iraq militia stop ISIS attack near Syrian border

Anbar (IraqiNews.com) The pro-government Shi’ite militias of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) has repulsed an attack by the Islamic State (IS) north of al-Waleed border crossing in western Anbar, Alsumaria News reported on Wednesday.

A source from the government told Alsumaria News that the IS launched an attack on a headquarter of al-Hashd al-Shaabi north of al-Waleed border crossing.

“Violent clashes took place between al-Hashd al-Shaabi forces and IS militants,” the source added, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Al-Hashd al-Shaabi repulsed the attack and caused losses among the attackers”.

Al-Hashd al-Shaabi, an alliance of more than 60 mostly Shia militias, has been actively engaged in the government’s campaign against the Islamic State that ran since mid-October, and contributed to the campaign by regaining control over IS holdouts near the Syrian borders.

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.

Bombings and armed attacks are seen 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.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
IDF arrests father, brother of Halamish terrorist
[IsraelTimes] Security forces continue campaign to pick up relatives of Omar al-Abed suspected of praising or assisting in his attack

Israeli security forces, in an operation overnight Tuesday in the Paleostinian village of Kobar, north of Ramallah, tossed in the clink
Maw! They're comin' to get me, Maw!
the father and a brother of a terrorist who stabbed to death three members of the Salomon family in the Halamish settlement last month.

Hours after the July 21 attack, the IDF raided Omar al-Abed’s home, mapped it for demolition and arrested another one of his brothers, whom officials suspect aided his brother in carrying out the attack.

In the ensuing days, the army also arrested Abed’s mother, Ibtisam, for "aggravated incitement," after she appeared in a widely shared video praising her son’s actions.

Abed’s father, Abd al-Jalil, who was arrested in the Tuesday night raid, told the Haaretz daily last month that his son’s actions were understandable.

On the eve of July 21, 19-year-old Abed descended from his village, climbed over the Halamish fence, and knocked on the door of the Salomon home.

The family had been celebrating the birth of a new grandson and thought that Abed was the first guest to the party. Shortly after walking in, the young Paleostinian took out his knife and stabbed to death Yosef Salomon, 70 and his two children, Chaya, 46, and Elad, 36. Yosef’s wife, Tova, sustained several stab wounds to her back but survived.

An off-duty IDF soldier heard the screams, grabbed his gun and shot the terrorist through the Salomon’s kitchen window, wounding him.

Although there has been considerable political support, notably from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, for seeking the death penalty against Abed, the Military Advocate General’s office, which will try the case in an IDF court, said that the punishment is not Israeli policy, despite it being permissible under law.

In addition to detaining Abed’s relatives, security forces arrested 25 Paleostinians in overnight raids across the West Bank. Twenty-two of the suspects were said to have been involved in violent disturbances against civilians and soldiers.

The IDF said it was investigating the incident.

The Israeli military added in a statement that 25 Paleostinian suspects were tossed in the calaboose

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Kurd rebel forces kill 29 ISIS Bad Guys in Raqqa
[ARA News] The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Wednesday killed at least 29 ISIS jihadists and freed 264 civilians from the Nazlat Shehadeh neighbourhood, southern Raqqa, the SDF Media Centre reported.

“Among the main tasks of the SDF troops is to maintain the safety of civilians. The SDF factions have therefore opened safe corridors and rescued hundreds of people who had been trapped in Raqqa,” the SDF said.

“In Nazlat Shehadeh, south of the city, a group of civilians tried to reach the points liberated by our forces. However, a landmine planted by ISIS terrorists in the neighbourhood killed a number of civilians and injuring eight others, including two women,” the SDF said.

“Immediately afterwards, the SDF-led Special Forces for the Liberation of Civilians intervened, liberated 264 civilians and transported the wounded to hospitals for treatment, while two of the wounded were reported to be in critical condition,” the SDF said.

Special teams were also able to retrieve the bodies of civilian victims who lost their lives due to mines.

In the meanwhile, heavy clashes continued between the US-backed SDF troops and ISIS militants in Raqqa city.

“The four fronts in the city witnessed heavy battles and clashes today. The fighters of the Syrian Democratic Forces made significant progress and killed 29 ISIS terrorists,” the SDF-Media Centre reported.

The Syrian Democratic Forces made a progress in the neighbourhood of Nazlat Shehadeh south of the city, and killed seven ISIS terrorists there, one of them was a sniper.

Furthermore, on the southern side of Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik neighborhood, six ISIS militants were killed in clashes with the SDF. Also, in Al-Barid district northwest of Raqqa, the SDF killed at least five ISIS fighters.

“The SDF inflicted heavy losses on ISIS, destroying a car bomb before it reached its goal, and shot down a reconnaissance drone of ISIS,” the SDF leadership said. “In the Rawda neighborhood – northeast of the city, there were also heavy clashes on Wednesday, where at least seven ISIS terrorists were killed,” the SDF said.

The clashes are still continuing on all fronts in Raqqa city. So far, the SDF has liberated 50 to 55 per cent of the city.

Fighting in Homs turns into a meat grinder
Dozens of regime forces and militants have been killed in central Syria as the ISIS group strives to hold off a regime advance there, a monitor said Wednesday.

With Russian backing, Syria’s army has been waging a months-long offensive to recapture the vast desert region that stretches from the country’s center to the Iraqi and Jordanian borders.

It has captured swathes of territory from ISIS in the central province of Homs, but the militants have ramped up their counter-offensives there.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said ISIS had dispatched at least five suicide car bombs and had laid mines throughout several frontline towns in Homs.

At least 39 government forces were killed and another 25 wounded since Tuesday, the Britain-based Observatory said.

“The regime has spread itself across a long frontline, and now ISIS is intensifying its counter-attacks,” said Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman.

According to Abdel Rahman, 30 IS fighters were also killed over the past 24 hours in clashes with regime fighters and in Russian air strikes.

Syrian state news agency SANA confirmed Wednesday that air strikes had targeted IS positions, including an ammunitions depot, in Homs province.

The Syrian “Badiya” is a large stretch of desert that extends over some 90,000 square kilometers (35,000 square miles) of territory.

Since 2015, much of the Badiya has been held by the militant group, but Syria’s army has been chipping away at it since May.

On Saturday, the Observatory said regime forces had ousted ISIS from Al-Sukhna, the last militant-held town in Homs province.

There has been no official confirmation of Al-Sukhna’s capture from Syria’s government.

More than 330,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict erupted in March 2011 with anti-government protests.

It has since morphed into a complex war involving regional and international players.

ISIS executes 27 in Kirkuk

Hawija (IraqiNews.com) Islamic State militants have executed 27 civilians in their Kirkuk stronghold, the last of a series of occasional executions of Iraqis in their grip.

A local source told Alsumaria News Wednesday that the execution took place at al-Bakkara military base in Hawija, southwest Kirkuk.

The source, who said the militant group had set on a series of executions of non-compliant prisoners recently, did not explain the reason for the latest incident.

Since IS militants took over large parts of Iraq in 2014 to proclaim an Islamic “caliphate”, they executed thousands of civilians for a variety of reasons ranging from collaboration with security forces to escaping group havens and violating the group’s religious directives.

Hawija is one of the future targets of Iraqi military offensives. The government declared early July it regained control over the city of Mosul, the militants’ former capital.

Local tribal leaders and politicians from Kirkuk have mounted pressure on the Iraqi government to hasten with invading Hawija, suggesting that its people were experiencing a humanitarian crisis under the group’s rule as the group continues to massacre civilians attempting to flee the town. The government and military commanders have set Nineveh’s town of Tal Afar as the next target for operations.

3K corpses remain in Old Mosul

Mosul (IraqiNews.com) Rubbles from more than eight months of battles between Iraqi forces and Islamic State militants in Mosul are still holding 3000 dead civilians’ bodies beneath, a relief team commander said.

Mohamed Abdul-Sattar al-Hamadani, a commander of the third division of the Iraqi Civil Defense forces, was quoted Wednesday saying that 3000 corpses remain under the rubble in the Old City district. He said 839 new bodies had been extracted from different Mosul areas in three days.

“Some corpses have been run on by tractors during removal of debris, and that is due to volunteers’ ignorance of the correct way of searching for civilians under the rubble,” Hamadani stated.

“We believe there are at least 3000 dead bodies under the rubble, especially in the western side of the Old City. Bab al-Toub and Rajm Hadid neighborhoods had been levelled, and nobody came alive from there,” he added.

The medieval Old City was the birthplace of the Islamic State. It was from its Grand Nuri Mosque that IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the establishment of the group’s rule in Iraq and Syria.

The Iraqi government said early July it retook full control over Mosul from IS. The military command said more than 1000 civilians were killed in the campaign.

ISIS executes one of its politicians in Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor (Syria News) The self-proclaimed Islamic State has executed, yesterday, one of its elite Legislators in the city of Mayadin, east of Deir Ezzor.

Local sources told Qasioun News, today, that the Islamic State group executed its prominent Legislator Abu Bakr al-Qahtani, due to a dispute between him and one of leaders, in an attempt to turn on the radical group.

The strongholds of the Islamic State in the city of Albukamal, east of Deir Ezzor, have previously witnessed vague security operations, resulting in the killing of several members of the Islamic State group, and forced the latter to impose a security cordon on the area.

It is noteworthy that the Islamic State group lost a wide range of areas in the Syrian Badiyah and the countryside of Raqqa.

ISIS punishes 4 wimmin for using cell phone

Hawija (IraqiNews.com) Islamic State militants punished four women at their Kirkuk stronghold with biting and whipping for using cell phones without their knowledge, a local source said Wednesday.

The source told Alsumaria News that IS’s so-called “women police” raided one house in central Hawija (55 km southwest of Kirkuk) searching for “communication tools locals use to contact their relatives and check on them”.

Finding an SIM card at one part of the house, the female vigilantes arrested four women from the household, and referred them to the group’s judges who sentenced them to three lashes and the fourth, an elder, to ten “bites” in the hands and the back, according to the source.

Biting had been a common punishment for civilian women who violate IS militants’ daily life directives.

The Islamic State has executed hundreds of civilians for contacting security forces and collaborating with them at areas under its control, and has always been stringent regarding the use of communication equipment.

IS has held Kirkuk since 2014, and the town is one of the next targets for Iraqi forces which managed in July to retake the group’s former proclaimed “capital”: Mosul.

6 arrested in Iran for teaching Zumba

TEHRAN: Four boys and two girls have been arrested in Iran for teaching “Western” dance moves including Zumba, a Colombian fitness routine, a local Revolutionary Guards commander said.

“The members of a network teaching and filming Western dances have been identified and arrested,” said Hamid Damghani, commander of the Guards in the town of Sharhoud in Iran’s northeastern Semnan province, according to Jamejam Online website late on Tuesday.

“The team attracted boys and girls, taught them Western dances and published their video clips on social media apps like Telegram and Instagram,” he added. “They were arrested by the Guards’ intelligence forces while teaching and creating video clips... as they sought to change lifestyles and promote a lack of hijab,” he said. They were charged with dancing and failing to wear proper clothing.

Women in Iran are banned from dancing in front of men outside their immediate families, but in recent years Zumba and other dances have been banned even in women-only gyms, even if the rules are widely flouted.

“The promotion and teaching of dancing in the name of sport in women’s gyms is a serious issue,” Damghani said. In 2014, seven young Iranians were arrested for dancing to Pharrell Williams’s hit “Happy” in a homemade video that went viral on the Internet. They were given suspended jail and lashing sentences.
