Egypt’s ISIS affiliate kills 10 people in Sinai convoy attack
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Militants from an ISIS affiliate ambushed a convoy of cement trucks late Thursday from an army factory in the central Sinai Peninsula, killing eight civilian employees and two soldiers, security officials said.

Lt. Col. Ibrahim Hussein Mohammed was killed in the nighttime attack near the town of Nakhl, the officials added. The Lion of Islams, from the group formerly known as Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, stole the men's weapons and burnt seven trucks.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to news hounds. ISIS did not immediately claim responsibility for the attack.

Egypt is also facing a growing number of attacks by holy warriors in its Western Desert, the latest of which killed 16 coppers according to an official tally issued by the Interior Ministry. Security officials, however, have told journalists that dozens more, including high-ranking counterterrorism officers, perished in the Oct. 20 attack some 135 kilometers (84 miles) southwest of the capital, Cairo.

Africa Subsaharan
U.S. soldier in Niger ambush was bound and apparently executed, villagers say
[WAPO] NIAMEY, Niger ‐ The body of Sgt. La David Johnson, one of four U.S. soldiers killed in an ambush by Islamist militants in Niger last month, was found with his arms tied and a gaping wound at the back of his head, according to two villagers, suggesting that he may have been captured and then executed.

Adamou Boubacar, a 23-year-old farmer and trader, said some children tending cattle found the remains of the soldier Oct. 6, two days after the attack outside the remote Niger village of Tongo Tongo, which also left five Nigerien soldiers dead. The children notified him.

When Boubacar went to the location, a bushy area roughly a mile from the ambush site, he saw Johnson’s body lying face down, he said. The back of his head had been smashed by something, possibly a bullet, said Boubacar. The soldier’s wrists were bound with rope, he said, raising the possibility that the militants ‐ whom the Pentagon suspects were affiliated with the Islamic State ‐ seized Johnson during the firefight and held him captive.

The villagers’ accounts come as the Niger operation is under intense scrutiny in the United States, with lawmakers expressing concern that they have received insufficient or conflicting information about what happened. The Pentagon is conducting an investigation into the attack in Niger, where the U.S. military is helping the Nigerien government confront a threat by militants associated with the Islamic State and al-Qaeda.

Boubacar, a resident of Tongo Tongo, said in a phone interview that he informed the village’s chief after seeing Johnson’s body. "His two arms were tied behind his back," he said. The chief called Nigerien military forces, who dispatched troops to retrieve Johnson’s remains.

Arabia
4 dead in fighting in Yemen's al-Shabwa
ADEN: Two soldiers and two terrorists were killed in clashes Friday as Emirati-backed Yemeni forces seized an Al-Qaeda foothold in the country’s south, security sources said.

Militants fled to nearby mountains after the clashes in Al-Hawtah district of Shabwa province, said a Yemeni officer.

He said Apache helicopters belonging to the UAE — a key member of a Saudi-led Arab coalition in Yemen — then strafed the mountains where the terrorists had fled.

“We entered Al-Hawtah after clashes with the terrorists and now we’re stationed in several locations... We are in total control of the area,” the officer said.

The UAE has been playing a key role in the Saudi-led campaign in Yemen, launched in 2015 to roll back Houthi militia gains but which has expanded to counter militant advances.

Al-Qaeda has flourished in the chaos of Yemen’s civil war and in August, Emirati-trained Yemeni special forces launched a US-backed operation against the group, also the target of a long-running US drone campaign.

Yemeni forces have brought Shabwa province largely under government control, though Al-Qaeda is known to make tactical retreats to mountain refuges, only to resurface.

Houthi militias still occupy one district of Shabwa as well as the neighboring province of Baida, the capital Sanaa and most of northern Yemen.

Saudi-led strikes hit defense ministry in Yemen capital
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The Saudi-led coalition carried out two air strikes on the defense ministry in Yemen's myrmidon-held capital Sanaa late Friday, witnesses and rebel media said, without reporting casualties.

Warplanes continued to circle in the skies above Sanaa after the strikes, the witnesses added.

The Houthi
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The Yemeni government has accused the Houthis of having ties to the Iranian government, which wouldn't suprise most of us. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews ...
militia media outlet al-Masirah also reported the two air strikes.

The coalition has targeted the defense ministry in the past, leaving it heavily damaged, but the fresh strikes come amid a ratcheting up of tensions between Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
and its rival Iran, which backs the Houthi myrmidons.

The coalition shut down Yemen's borders earlier this week after Saudi forces on Saturday intercepted a ballistic missile fired by the Houthis near the Riyadh airport.

The Death Eaters have threatened additional attacks on Saudi Arabia and its coalition partner the United Arab Emirates.

Saudi Arabia and its allies intervened in neighboring 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 March 2015 with the stated aim of rolling back Houthi militia gains and restoring the government of President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi to power.

The Houthis continue to control the capital Sanaa and much of Yemen's north.

The Grand Turk
Turkey Detains 82 Foreigners Planning to Go to Syria
[AnNahar] Ottoman Turkish authorities have detained 82 foreigners in Istanbul suspected of having links 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 and planning to go to Syria, as The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire....
's crackdown against the jihadist group widens.
Why on earth would wannabe jihadis want to join ISIS in Syria when it has already been defeated there? Truly these are not the sharpest knives in the block.
Police officers have been conducting raids almost daily against IS cells across the country, with increasing intensity in the past few weeks.

The state-run Anadolu news agency said the suspects had previously been involved with IS fighters in "conflict zones", and were planning to try to reach Syria "in the coming days".

Separately, the privately owned Dogan news agency reported that nearly 800 alleged IS members had illegally crossed into Turkey from Syria, though it did not say over what period.

Police raided 14 addresses in Istanbul, and also detained 11 other suspects of Syrian origin in the southern city of Adana, Anadolu reported.

The detentions were reported a day after a series of anti-IS raids in Ankara during which at least 173 people were detained in operations conducted by 1,500 coppers.

Most of those detained were of Syrian origin, Dogan reported.

The agency added that authorities had carried out Thursday's raids over fears of an attack on November 10, the date on which Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, father of the modern Ottoman Turkish republic, died in 1938.

Dozens of people had already been detained in Ankara late last month, some of whom were suspected of planning an attack on Republic Day on October 29.

According to the interior ministry, around 450 suspects were detained on suspicion of helping or being in contact with IS in October.

- Fleeing imported muscle -
With IS fighters on the run and losing territory in Syria and Iraq, including major cities like djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
in northern Iraq, there are fears that foreigners who came to fight will pose security risks if they return home.

At least 5,600 citizens or residents of 33 countries have already returned, the Soufan Centre, a nonprofit security analysis group, said last month.

Despite a lull in attacks in Turkey since January, tensions remain high as authorities hunt turban cells across the country.

In the Aegean city of Izmir, seven suspected IS members were detained while nine suspects were seized in the northern city of Trabzon, Anadolu said on Friday.

During the Trabzon operation, two guns were found with 159 rounds of ammunition.

- Syria operations -
Turkey came under attack from IS beginning in late 2015 after Ankara allowed the US military to conduct air strikes on IS targets in Syria via Turkey's Incirlik air base.

Turkey had long been one of the main points of passage to Syria for foreigners, especially Westerners, trying to join jihadist groups.

Ankara was previously accused of turning a blind eye and was criticised by its Western allies for not doing enough to fight the Islamic State group.

But in August 2016 Ankara launched operation "Euphrates Shield" to support rebels in northern Syria trying to clear the border region of IS fighters.

The authorities claimed the operation was a success and ended it in March.

And last month, Turkey entered northwest Syria's largely jihadist-controlled Idlib Province to form a "de-escalation zone" in the fight against jihadists.

Idlib has been controlled for the past few months by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a group led by al-Qaeda's former Syria affiliate.

India-Pakistan
3 suicide bombers killed as Rangers foil 'terror attack' in Rohri
[DAWN] The Sindh Rangers on Friday killed three "jacket wallahs" in Rohri who were planning to target the Bab-e-Karbala Imambargah
...since Pakistain is very religiously correct, Shia Moslems can't call their houses of worship 'mosques,' which are reserved for Sunnis. It's not clear if imambargahs are used for explosives storage like mosques are...
, read a statement issued by the paramilitary force.

The "suspicious men" were signalled to stop by Rangers personnel at a checkpoint. "An exchange of fire took place when the suspicious men tried to escape," read the statement, adding that the three men were killed in the gunfire.

Rangers found suicide jackets on the men, which were diffused with the help of the bomb disposal squad.

Initial investigations revealed that the "turbans were associated with a banned outfit" and their target for the "terror attack" was the Bab-e-Karbala Imambargah. The process to ascertain their identities is underway.

Iraq
Cyprus says it could send more light arms to Iraqi Kurds
Bless you for standing up when others are stepping back.
[Ynet] Cyprus' foreign minister says the island nation could send more light arms and ammunition it no longer needs to Iraqi Kurds to assist in their fight against 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.

group.

Ioannis Kasoulides said Friday that Cyprus has already dispatched two shipments of Serb-made Zastava assault rifles and ammunition to Kurdish fighters, delivered by US authorities.

Kasoulides says any further assistance would be sent in consultation with Cyprus' partners in the anti-IS coalition. He notes that Cyprus fully supports Iraq's territorial integrity.

Cyprus' top diplomat says La Belle France helped to deliver unused Cypriot light arms and ammunition to Leb's armed forces to thwart attacks from holy warrior groups on its northern border. Jordan received similar assistance.

#1  Cyprus? Curious. Are they acting as a cutout for someone who doesn't want the heat from arming the Kurds? Or maybe they are just tweaking the Turks for that invasion business a few decades back. Either way, it's a good thing.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
IDF launches new reserve unit to fight Jordan Valley terrorism
Happy hunting, guys.
[Ynet] The IDF has established a new reserve unit trained and fitted to the first responders to terrorist attacks in the Jordan Valley‐the home of the very people this unit is composed of.

Dozens of veterans of combat units and elite patrols from the Jordan Valley established, together with the IDF, a new unit that is supposed to provide the first response to any terror incident in the area.

The need for the new unit, which received the acronym RRU‐Rapid Response Unit, increased following the expansion of the Jordan Valley's border, which now stretches over 250 kilometers.

Members of the RRU‐salaried employees and self-employed persons who work in a variety of professions, including hi-tech, tourism, agriculture, etc., all graduates of the IDF combat service‐identified the security gap.

Following their request to the IDF, the idea of establishing a unit deployed throughout the sector was born in order to provide a quick response to any event.

The person who was recruited to build the unit is Command Sergeant Major (res.) D, who took part in the construction of several elite units, including the IDF's Duvdevan Unit and the Israeli Prison Service's Metzada unit.

"Almost a year after it was decided to establish it, it can be said that the unit is on its feet," said D., who was also appointed commander of the unit. "We trained in counter-terrorism, shooting and weapon usage. The guys are ready."

In the past year, as part of the unit's readiness, its members have held many days of reserve duty‐often four days in a row each month‐and practiced raids on schools and public buildings, while taking over hostage-holding terrorists.

The unit, which on Tuesday completed its final exercise and became operational, is on standby 24 hours a day and is suited to terrorist threats as analyzed by intelligence personnel in the IDF.

"The strengthening of Paleostinian Islamic Jihad
...created after many members of the Egyptian Moslem Brotherhood decided the organization was becoming too moderate. Operations were conducted out of Egypt until 1981 when the group was exiled after the assassination of President Anwar Sadat. They worked out of Gaza until they were exiled to Lebanon in 1987, where they clove tightly to Hezbollah. In 1989 they moved to Damascus, where they remain a subsidiary of Hezbollah...
on the northern border is not hidden from us, and we are constantly taking steps to provide a proper response to the next threat," a senior security source said Tuesday, stressing its importance by adding that terrorist cells from Jordan could enter Jordan Valley settlements and perform devastating terror attack with dozens left dead.

"The unit's goal is to get to the scene as soon as possible and give an immediate response," D. summarized. "In order to overcome the problem of the vastness of the area, the unit was built from the residents of the settlements in an informed manner and was divided into teams according to the residential areas.

"That's why we can reach any event in this area within minutes. These guys came to this unit out of a sense of mission. They enlisted for a national mission, to maintain security in their area."

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Hezbollah media: IS leader Baghdadi was reported in Syrian town
[AlAhram] A Hezbollah-run news outlet said on Friday that Islamic State

was reported present in the Syrian town of Albu Kamal during the Syrian army and its allies' operation to clear it.

The report did not say if Baghdadi was captured in the town, which the Syrian army and its allies said they had captured this week.

Saudi citizen kidnapped in Lebanon; million dollar in ransom demanded
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] A Saudi citizen was kidnapped in Leb and a million dollars in ransom was demanded for his release.

The Saudi Embassy in Leb has been working with the security authorities at the highest level to release the kidnapped citizen unconditionally as soon as possible.

Abd al-Shamrawi, 32, the Saudi national married to a Syrian woman called Fasila Azir, was kidnapped near his home in al-Aqiba, Keserwan, in Mount Leb governorate.

The Lebanese police are searching for him near his home.

Al-Nahar, the Lebanese newspaper, mentioned that the police is searching for the Saudi abductee after his wife reported his disappearance.

A Lebanese security source said that the wife contacted the security forces today and reported the disappearance of her husband, pointing out that the investigations are going on to find out his location. The kidnapped Saudi citizen originally hails from Qatif in the Eastern Province of Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
Lebanese media sources said that the family of the Saudi national received a call demanding $1 million to release him.

"We are investigating the kidnapping of a Saudi citizen case and we will not allow anyone to exploit the political crisis to disturb the atmosphere", the Lebanese Interior Minister said.

The safety and security of Saudi nationals, and all Arab and foreign nationals, is a priority for the Lebanese authorities, and tampering with security and stability is a red line, and the security forces have been mobilized, he added.

Earlier, the Saudi Foreign Ministry asked its nationals residing and visiting Leb to leave as soon as possible, and also advised its nationals not to travel to Leb from any international destination.
