Afghan forces drive back attack on Kop Shop in Wardak
The Afghan Security Forces (ANSF) on Tuesday night foiled a complex attack by the Taliban on an Afghan National Police (ANP) training center in volatile Maidan Wardak province, police officials in the area confirmed.

This came just hours after Daesh carried out an attack on Shamshad TV in the nation’s capital Kabul that left at least two people dead and 20 others wounded.

Maidan Wardak police chief said that at least 15 militants attacked the base, but that the security forces killed all attackers. No casualties were reported among Afghan forces.

Initial reports from the area indicate that the insurgents stormed the center from a hillside using heavy artillery and explosives.

Furious protests after senior BRSC figure dies in Misrata
[Libya Herald] There were angry protests today outside Misrata’s anticrime office following the death in detention of leading Benghazi Revolutionaries’ Shoura Council member Mohammed Bakr al-Yedri.

Photograph’s of Yedri’s body in Misrata hospital mortuary showed signs of bruising and foaming at the mouth. Supporters claimed he had been subjected to electric shocks. The cause of death has not yet been determined.

Yedri, whose nickname was "Nahala" (Bee), lost the lower half of his left arm in a previous incident. He had fled Benghazi reportedly last year as LNA forces closed in on murderous Moslem positions. He had moved to Misrata, from which supplies and reinforcements were being sent by boat via the quay at Libyan Iron and Steel Company (LISCO).

It is understood that Yedri disappeared some weeks ago.

Africa Subsaharan
Two Women Killed as Nigerian Soldiers Repel Boko Haram
[AnNahar] At least two non-combatants were killed when dozens of Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
fighters tried to storm a town in a remote area of northeast Nigeria
... a particularly crimson stretch of Islam's bloody border...
but were repelled by troops, locals said on Tuesday.

The attempted raid on Gulak, in the Madagali area of the far north of Adamawa state, happened at about 7:30 pm (1830 GMT) on Monday and involved about 50 jihadists.

"There was a shootout that lasted for almost half an hour," said Maina Ularamu, a former chairman of the Madagali local government area.

"One of the (Boko Haram) pick-up trucks, which was laden with explosives, tried to get past the military checkpoint. Soldiers opened fire on it and it went kaboom!.

"That caused a lot of casualties on the part of Boko Haram. One soldier was killed and two other women nearby also died from stray bullets."

There was no immediate confirmation of the deaths from the Nigerian Army when contacted by AFP.

Monday's assault is the latest in the Madagali area, which lies on the border with Borno state and near where Boko Haram had camps in the Sambisa Forest former national park.

Last week, twojacket wallah'> exploding trollop female suicide bomber
s died in Dar village near Gulak but there were no other casualties. Locals said they believed they may have been trying to target a church.

Nigeria's military said late last year it had forced Boko Haram out of its camps in the Sambisa Forest but there have been reports the Lions of Islam have moved back in.

They are also known to be hiding in the Mandara mountains to the east of Madagali, which form the border with Cameroon
...a long, narrow country that fills the space between Nigeria and Chad on the northeast, CAR to the southeast. Prior to incursions by Boko Haram nothing ever happened there...
Suicide bombing is a constant threat to civilians. On Tuesday, up to eight people were maimed when four female bombers tried to get into the Borno state capital, Maiduguri.

One detonated her explosives in a crowd on the outskirts of the city near Kaleri village. Two others blew up on farmland while a third was shot, civilian militia and police said.

Europe
Nine held in anti-terror raids across France plus one in Switzerland as 'attack is thwarted'
[TheLocal.fr] Nine suspects were tossed in the calaboose
Drop the rod and step away witcher hands up!
in a series of anti-terror operations carried out around La Belle France on Tuesday, with French media reporting a planned attack on the city of Nice had been thwarted.

The raids took place in the greater Gay Paree region of Île-de-La Belle France and the Provence-Alpes-Côtes-d'Azur region of the south east.

According to reports some nine individuals aged between 18 and 60-years-old were arrested in the raids carried out by La Belle France's specialist counter-terrorist police.

The arrests were reportedly made in the Val-de-Marne department to the south west of Gay Paree, Seine-Saint-Denis to the capital's north, the city of Aix-en Provence, north of Marseille and the town of Menton, on the border with Italia.

Those held included two brothers who were known to have been radicalised, sources told AFP.

An arrest was also made in Switzerland
...home of the Helvetians, famous for cheese, watches, yodeling, and William Tell...
which brought the total number of suspects held to 10.

The 27-year-old man arrested in Switzerland was in contact with a 14-year-old French boy who was "about to carry out the attack," one of the sources said.

The teenager was arrested in the Gay Paree region on June 20 and charged by an anti-terror judge, the sources said.

A photo of the boy holding a paper vowing his allegiance to 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 was found on social media, they added.

The Swiss man was "particularly active on social networks... and he had contacts with individuals living in La Belle France with whom he notably discussed violent actions," a judicial source said.

According to BFM TV those arrested are suspected of planning and preparing a terror attack.

The suspects exchanged "disturbing remarks" on the Telegram encrypted messaging app, the sources said, adding that Sherlocks were seeking to "determine what they were plotting".

It is not clear at this stage what their intentions were nor how far down the line their plans were, but according to Le Gay Pareeien newspaper, which first broke the news of the raids, the suspects planned to target the Riviera city of Nice, where 86 people were killed in the Bastille Day truck attack in 2016.

Quoting its own sources close to the probe Le Gay Pareeien said the intentions of the suspects had "become firm".

Authorities in La Belle France have not confirmed Nice was indeed the target.

La Belle France remains on high alert for terror attacks and last week the Minister of Interior Gerrard Collomb claimed that 32 attacks had been foiled since the State of Emergency was declared the night of the November 2015 shootings and bombing in Gay Paree.
Ynet adds:
Swiss officials said a 23-year-old Colombian woman was taken into custody after police raids there. A Swiss man aged 27 was among those tossed in the calaboose
Drop the heater, Studs, or you're hist'try!

Indian man jailed 27 years for funding Al Qaeda, plotting to kill US judge
[DAWN] An Indian man who came to the United States to study was sentenced Monday to more than 27 years in prison for sending funds to Al Qaeda and plotting to kill the federal judge in his trial.
Good.
Yahya Farooq Mohammad, 39, was one of four men including his brother enjugged
Yez got nuttin' on me, coppers! Nuttin'!
in September 2015 and charged for sending $22,000 to US-born holy man Anwar al-Awlaki
... Born in Las Cruces, New Mexico, zapped in Yemen, al-Awlaki was a dual citizen of the U.S. and Yemen. He was an Islamic holy man who was a trainer for al-Qaeda and its franchises. His sermons were attended by three of the 9/11 hijackers, by Fort Hood murderer Nidal Malik Hussein, and Undieboomer Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. He was the first U.S. citizen ever placed on a CIA target list...
, a leader of Yemen-based Al Qaeda on the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).

Mohammad and two others travelled to Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of. Except for a tiny handfull of Jews everthing there is very Islamic...
in 2009 in hopes of hand-delivering the money to Awlaki, one of the most influential recruiters for Al Qaeda. They did not meet him, but had the money delivered to him by a third party.

After they were arrested in 2015, Mohammad also tried to hire someone to kill the judge in his case, the Justice Department said.

"He threatened the safety of our citizens, a judge and the independent judiciary. Now he is being held accountable," said US Attorney Justin Herdman.

Mohammad came to the United States to study at Ohio State University in 2002. He married a US citizen in 2008.

A year after the his arrest, Mohammad offered another inmate in the Lucas County, Ohio jail $15,000 to kidnap and kill US District Judge Jack Zouhary.

The inmate connected Mohammad with an assassin who was in fact an undercover FBI agent. A member of Mohammad's family paid a $1,000 down payment to the "assassin."

He pleaded guilty in US federal court in Toledo, Ohio to one count of conspiracy to provide and conceal material support or resources to Lions of Islam and one count of solicitation to commit a crime of violence.

In a plea deal, Mohammad agreed to 27.5 years in federal prison, after which he will be deported.

The three other men arrested still face trial. All pleaded not guilty
"Wudn't me."
to the charges.

India-Pakistan
JeM chief Masood Azhar's nephew killed in IHK operation
[DAWN] Jaish-e-Mohammad
...literally Army of Mohammad, a Pak-based Deobandi terror group founded by Maulana Masood Azhar in 2000, after he split with the Harkat-ul-Mujaheddin. In 2002 the government of Pervez Musharraf banned the group, which changed its name to Khaddam ul-Islam and continued doing what it had been doing before without missing a beat...
(JeM) chief Masood Azhar's nephew, Talha Rashid, was allegedly killed in an encounter with security forces in India-held Kashmire's (IHK) Pulwama district on Tuesday, according to Indian media reports.

Two other suspected bully boyz and an Indian soldier were also killed in the encounter in Aglar Kandi village, the reports claimed.

A JeM spokesperson confirmed Rashid's death, according to Asia News International (ANI).

"Three bully boyz killed during an encounter at Kandi Aglar village of Pulwama district includes nephew of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar
...One of the major players in Pak terrorism. In early 1994, India incarcerated him for his terrorist activities. In 1995, foreign tourists were kidnapped in Jammu and Kashmir. The kidnappers included the release of Masood Azhar among their demands. One of the hostages managed to escape but the rest were eventually killed. In 1999, he was freed by the Indian government in exchange for passengers on hijacked Indian Airlines Flight 814 that had been diverted to Kandahar. The hijackers were led by Masood Azhar's brother, Ibrahim Athar. Once he was handed over to the hijackers, they fled to Pak territory despite the fact that Islamabad had earlier stated that any of the hijackers would be jugged at the border. The Pak government had also previously indicated that Azhar would be allowed to return home since he did not face any charges there. Shortly after his release, he made a public address to an estimated 10,000 people in Karachi, firing up the rubes against America and India...
and outfit's divisional commander," the JeM statement said.

The bully boyz were identified as Divisional Commander Muhammad Bhai and Waseem, a resident of Pulwama's Drubgam.

A civilian was also said to be injured in the encounter between Indian security forces and the krazed killers.

A firefight between bully boyz and security forces broke out as personnel of the 182 and 183 battalions of India's Central Reserve Police Force, the 44 Rashtriya Rifles and IHK police were carrying out a cordon and search operation in the area.

According to the Hindustan Times, a police spokesperson said the operation was conducted after receiving credible leads.

"While the cordon was being laid, the bully boyz opened fire in which one army jawan and a civilian got injured," the spokesperson said.

Two AK-47s and a pistol were recovered from the site of the encounter.

IHK Inspector General of Police Munir Khan said it was "an excellent operation, nicely coordinated between the Jammu and Kashmire police, the army and the CRPF."

"We will ask Pakistain to collect the body because they [JeM] owned it," he alleged. "The matter will be taken up through proper channels."

Iraq
Iraqi troops drive back ISIS attack in Diyala
Diyala (IraqiNews.com) Iraqi troops have repulsed an Islamic State attack against security checkpoint in north of Diyala, a local official said on Tuesday.

“Several IS members attempted in the evening launching an attack against joint security checkpoint of al-Hashd al-Shaabi [Popular Mobilization Forces] and police on the borders of the liberated al-BouEissa village, located in the vicinity of Udhaim town, from Salahuddin direction,” Mohamed Daifan al-Ebeidi, head of the town’s local council, told Alghad Press.

“Security personnel at the checkpoint managed to repel the attack and follow the militants with no casualties reported,” he added.

Ebeidi urged the troops to expedite the military operation at Mutaibija, located near Udhaim, to comb it from IS militants and preserve security at the province.

Mutaibija has complicated terrain, with numerous hills that serve as a good hideout for militants. Occasional attacks have been witnessed there by Islamic State against government and paramilitary troops deployments since Iraqi forces, backed by a U.S.-led coalition and PMUs, launched a major offensive to retake areas occupied by IS since 2014.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
PA official claims 7 terror attacks thwarted by Palestinian forces
They've been busy.
[Ynet] Paleostinian security official tells Ynet his forces foiled planned stabbings, shootings and bombings against Israelis in the West Bank; eager to prevent Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", from exploiting reconciliation deal as means to dig in inside West Bank, official outlines crackdown on terrorists, including arrest of 46 Hamas affiliates and dozens more hailing from other terror groups.

Seven terror attacks against Israelis in the West Bank were thwarted by Paleostinian security forces in October, a Paleostinian official claimed Tuesday in an interview with Ynet.

According the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the Paleostinian security apparatus prevented planned stabbings, shootings and bombings.

Information obtained by Ynet and published at the beginning of the week also illustrated that last month the Paleostinian forces nabbed
Drop the rosco, Muggsy, or you're one with the ages!
scores of Hamas murderous Moslems in the West Bank, despite the reconciliation deal signed in early October between the Gazoo-ruling movement and Fatah.

A total of 46 Hamas murderous Moslems were arrested, while dozens more activists affiliated with other myrmidon factions were also handcuffed, the Paleostinian official claimed.

In addition, the official claimed that Paleostinian security forces carried out various operations in which weapons and accessories were confiscated, along with ammunitions intended to be used in terror attacks and money earmarked for their funding.

The extensive security activity of the Paleostinian security forces carried out against Hamas infrastructures embedded in the West Bank comes shortly after the terror group began ceding control of the Gazoo Strip's border crossings with Israel and Egypt to Paleostinian Authority (PA) President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
... a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial...
as part of the reconciliation agreement brokered by Cairo to end a decade of internal schism.

The intensified efforts to clamp down on Hamas in the West Bank however, is also intended to send a clear signal to Israel and the United States that the PA is not willing to permit Hamas to exploit the freshly planted seeds of reconciliation from which a civil and military terror infrastructure could bloom.

With the PA tightening the noose, Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", has publicly demanded from the Paleostinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah to instruct the security forces to immediately cease its arrests, which the movement dubbed as "criminal."

Artillery dual leave 9 dead in Damascus
BEIRUT: Shelling by the Syrian regime on an opposition-held enclave on the outskirts of Damascus killed seven civilians, while retaliatory fire killed three people on Tuesday, a monitor said.

Six civilians, including two children, were killed by shelling on Saqba, in the Eastern Ghouta area that an opposition group controls but is besieged by regime forces, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Another child was killed in the nearby town of Douma, said Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Britain-based monitoring organization.

A total of 18 people were also wounded in the besieged area, he said.
Shelling by the opposition forces on central Damascus later killed three people, including at least two civilians, and wounded at least 15, said Abdel Rahman.

“The shelling was in response to the attack on Ghouta,” said the director of the observatory, which relies on a network of sources on the ground in Syria for its information.

A “de-escalation zone” deal agreed by regime allies Iran and Russia and Turkey, which backs the opposition, has been in place in Eastern Ghouta since July, but it has been repeatedly violated.

In addition to an uptick in regime shelling on Eastern Ghouta, humanitarian workers have warned the conditions inside the enclave were increasingly dire.

Up to 400,000 people are believed to live in Eastern Ghouta, which has been under government siege since 2013.

The blockade has caused serious food and medicine shortages, and pushed the prices for what remains beyond the reach of impoverished residents.

Air strikes continue in Deir Ezzor
Deir Ezzor (Syria News) Local sources informed, on Tuesday, that more than four civilians were either killed or wounded in an air strike, carried out by unknown warplanes, on the towns and villages of the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, Enab Baladi News reported.

The sources revealed that four civilians, including two children and a woman, were killed in an air strike carried out by warplanes on al-Sayal area, near the village of al-Shaghfa, in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, amid the ongoing battles against the Islamic State group.

“Heavy air strikes were conducted on the the cities of al-Qawreiya and al-Ashara, in the village of al-Shaghfa and many other areas in Albukamal City, southeast of Deir Ezzor,” the sources explained.

Moreover, the sources did not identify the identity of the warplanes that bombarded the area; however, social media activists affirmed the air strikes were carried out by the Russian warplanes, accompanying the Syrian regime offenses on the city of Albukamal.

Yesterday, informed sources told Enab Baladi that the Russian warplanes committed a massacre in al-Harye Town, in the countryside of the city of Albukamal, leaving eight casualties.
