Al-Qaeda-linked Syrian group rejects Idlib agreement, vows to continue fight
2018-09-24
[AlMasdar] (4:50 P.M.) ‐ A Syrian bully boy group linked to the al-Qaeda terror organization released an official statement rejecting the recently-concluded Idlib agreement between Russia and The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund....
Guardians of Religion Organization (Tanzeen Hurras al-Din) is made up of former Nusra members who had defected their former group only to form a more krazed killer faction.

The ultraconservative group also vowed to carry on fight against the Syrian government and its allies until the end.

In the same context, the FSA-affiliated Ansar al-Deen, chaired by Abu Abdullah al-Shami, said it is not committed with the RussiaTurkey-brokered deal.

Both factions are mainly active in al-Ghab Plains, west Idlib and northern Latakia countryside.

and the United Arab Emirates announced the launch of a large-scale military operation to liberate the Yemeni port city of Al Hodeidah on the Red Sea from Shiite turbans from Ansar Allah movement, the commander of coalition forces on Yemen’s west coast Gen. Ali Taniji said Tuesday.

"The attack of troops on the side of President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi with the support of the military Arab coalition on Al Hodeidah began from several directions," Taniji said, as quoted the WAM news agency.

According to the commander, the Houthis lost their ability to resist. Coalition aircraft are bombing their positions on the outskirts of Al Hodeidah. The coalition reported that it had cut off the channel of supply of rebels in Hodeida from the city of Saada. According to Taniji, thousands of trained fighters of the Yemeni resistance will stop the Houthis’ attempts to regain the areas of Al Hodeidah that were repulsed from them.

In turn, the Al Masirah broadcaster, which is controlled by the holy warriors, reported that the Arab coalition had inflicted a strike on the building of the naval faculty in Al Hodeidah.

rebels for several years. The Saudi-led coalition of mostly Persian Gulf nations has been carrying out Arclight airstrikes against the Houthis at Hadi’s request since March 2015.

The situation in the war-torn country has tanked sharply since June, when the Saudi-led coalition launched an offensive to seize Al Hodeidah, a key port city for humanitarian aid, from the Houthis.

On Saturday, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar had conducted a ’raid’ on a room of Dr Ziauddin Hospital in Clifton, which was declared a sub-jail by provincial authorities, where Memon was staying, and reportedly found "liquor" there.

Soon after the bottles were confiscated, the PPP leadership had insisted that the bottles did not contain alcohol but honey and olive oil.

The chemical report signed by Director of Laboratories and Chemical Examiner to the Government of Sindh Dr Zahid Hasan Ansari confirmed that one bottle contained honey while the other contained olive oil.

it appeared that Memon's blood also did not contain any traces of alcohol, DawnNewsTV said while quoting the test report.

The blood samples were taken at Ziauddin Hospital on Saturday and the report from Aga Khan Hospital is dated Sunday.

Memon had been under treatment and in judicial custody at the Ziauddin Hospital's Shirin Jinnah branch, where his room had been declared a sub-jail.

He was parcelled off to Karachi's Central Jail soon after the alleged discovery of liquor bottles in his room, as police and hospital authorities scrambled to save face.

After the CJP's 'raid', the Sindh chief secretary and DIG Prisons Aftab Pathan reached Ziauddin Hospital in an effort to "record evidence and take action".

Jihadist rebels assemble largest force since 2015 Idlib offensive
2018-08-30
[ALMASDARNEWS] The jihadist rebels in the Hama, Idlib, and Latakia governorates have assembled a massive force in response to the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) large-scale military buildup in these provinces, a source in northeast Latakia told al-Masdar News tonight.

According to the military source, the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham
(HTS), Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP), et al. have mobilized thousands of fighters in northwest Syria to defend their areas from the Syrian Arab Army and their allies.

In particular, the source said that jihadist rebels have mobilized a massive force inside the al-Ghaab Plain region and the northern countryside the Hama Governorate, which is reminiscent of Jaish al-Fateh

Huge 4th Division convoy heads to northern Latakia for upcoming offensive (video)

[AlMasdar] A huge military convoy from one of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite divisions was filmed heading towards the northern countryside of the Latakia on Thursday.

According to a military communique from Latakia, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Division sent another large convoy to this imperative front near the Turkish border this week.

The 4th Division sent their 39th and 41st brigades to the Latakia Governorate, with another large batch to come in the next few days, a source from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar News on Thursday evening.

Below is the video of the 4th Division heading towards the Jabal Al-Akrad and Jabal Turkmen regions of northern Latakia:

In the coming weeks, the Syrian Arab Army is expected to begin their long-awaited offensive to retake all of the territories controlled by the jihadist rebels in northern latakia.

Trouble in paradise: HTS attacks rebel allies in northern Latakia as Syrian Army’s offensive nears

[AlMasdar] In a bizarre move on Thursday, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham
launched a big attack on their Free Syrian Army (FSA) allies in the northern countryside of the Latakia Governorate.

According to opposition activists via social media, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham stormed the bases of the Free Syrian Army’s (FSA) Ansar Al-Sham Regiment in the ‘Ayn Bidah area on Thursday morning.

Intense clashes would ensue between the former allies, as Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham attempted to gain the upper hand against the Free Syrian Army faction near the Turkish border-crossing in Latakia.

The opposition activists allege that Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched this attack in a bid to seize Ansar Al-Sham’s weapons; however, others claimed that the latter was preparing to join the ranks of Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham, which HTS currently has a dispute with.

This latest infighting between the rebel forces comes as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) prepares to launch a large-scale offensive in the northern countryside of the Latakia Governorate.

In 2014, the defendants were charged with establishing and running the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist group, attacking police and army personnel and institutions, as well as targeting governmental facilities and Christians and their places of worship.

The court set 14 October for issuing a final verdict for all 23 defendants in the case.

A final verdict can be still appealed.

Yemen’s Hodeidah ‘one airstrike away from unstoppable epidemic’ -- UN

has been under a powerful attack by the Saudi-led Coalition since April; this has resulted in the death of several civilians.

According to a UN report, at least 75 percent (22 million people) of the country requires some form of humanitarian aid or protection, including 8.5 million people who do not know where their next meal is coming from.

Since the Saudi-led Coalition restarted their military operations in Hodeidah, at least 50 people have been killed and 328 others have been maimed.

Ansar al-Islam operatives training with India’s Kuki rebels, CTTC finds
2018-07-28
[Dhaka Tribune] Members of Bangladeshi Death Eater outfit Ansar al-Islam are now secretly training with the separatist Kuki rebels in India, Bangladeshi counterterrorism officials have learnt.

The Death Eater operatives are also trying to collect weapons from the separatist group based in the north-east states of Nagaland, Mizoram and Manipur in India, reported Bangla Tribune.

Officials of the Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crimes (CTTC) unit of police gleaned this information from Ansar al-Islam operative Sheikh Abdullah alias Zubayer alias Zayed alias Babed alias Abu Omair, during interrogation.

The Kuki separatist group is mainly active in the north-eastern parts of India, but Kuki people are also present in the Chin state of Myanmar and the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh.

Ansar al-Islam law enforcement agencies say is made up of the old members of Death Eater outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team banned in 2015, that targeted secular activists, writers and bloggers, as well as LGBT activists. The group was also banned in 2017.

Zubayer was tossed in the calaboose
... anything you say can and will be used against you, whether you say it or not...
by the CTTC in Chittagong on July 17 as the prime suspect in the 2016 murder of LGBT activists Xulhaz Mannan and Mahbub Rabbi Tonoy, who confessed to being involved in the double murder.

CTTC Sherlocks say Zubayer liaised between the Kuki rebels in India and the Ansar al-Islam in Bangladesh on behalf of the Death Eater group’s top leader, sacked armed forces Major Zia ul Haque.

Zubayer, who joined Ansar al-Islam in 2013 and was gradually promoted to run the intelligence wing of the Death Eater group, sent its operatives to India to the Kuki rebels for training, the officials said.

Being a trusted accomplice of Zia, he was also in charge of collecting funds and the Death Eater group’s management, the Sherlocks said.

"Zubayer is an important member of Ansar al-Islam. He has confessed to being involved in the Xulhaz-Tonoy murder before court. We have collected some vital information about the organization from him during interrogation; we are now verifying the information," said CTTC Deputy Commissioner Mohibul Islam Khan.

Officials working on the case said Zia was currently hiding in the greater Chittagong area, but his exact location has yet to be identified.

During the interrogation, Zubayer told the CTTC that he travelled to Dhaka once a month to collect funds ‐ amounting from Tk2 lakh to Tk6 lakh ‐ from designated individuals on Zia’s instruction.

A portion of that fund would be sent to Zia, and the rest would be sent to the heads of different units of Ansar al-Islam.

CTTC Additional Deputy Commissioner Md Saiful Islam said Zubayer gave names of Ansar al-Islam sympathizers.

"These sympathizers provide the funds to the Death Eater organization. We are looking for these people to find out more details," he told Bangla Tribune.

Bangladesh
2 suspected JMB members arrested near New Delhi
2018-07-25
[Dhaka Tribune] Two suspected members of Death Eater outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh
The JMB is said to be the youth front of Al Mujahideen, the parent organization that began working toward establishing Bangladesh as an Islamic state in the mid 1990s, which remains obscure and probably defunct today. Other organizations, such as Jama'atul Jihad, JMB, Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh (JMJB), Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HUJI), Hizbut Tawhid, Tawhidi Janata, Islami Jubo Shangha, Islami Shangha, Al Falah A'am Unnayan Shanstha and Shahadat-e al Hiqma are believed to be part of the Al Mujahideen network. The JMB at its peak was reported to contain at least 100,000 members, and an alleged 2,000-man suicide brigade, few of whom actually exploded. JMB allegedly received financial assistance from individual donors in Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Libya. Reports have claimed that funding of JMB by international NGOs like Kuwait based Society of the Revival of Islamic Heritage (RIHS) and Doulatul Kuwait, Saudi Arabia based Al Haramaine Islamic Institute and Rabita Al Alam Al Islami, Qatar Charitable Society and UAE-based Al Fuzaira and Khairul Ansar Al Khairia. The top leadership of JMB was captured in 2005 and hung in 2007, which pretty much shot their bolt.
(JMB) were tossed in the clink
Book 'im, Mahmoud!
from Uttar Pradesh’s Greater Noida area.

The duo- Bangladeshi nationals Musharraf aka Musa, and Rubel Ahmed- were arrested from the Surajpur cop shoppe area, on the outskirts of the New Delhi, during a joint operation by the state’s Anti-Terror Squad (ATS) and the West Bengal police, reports India Today quoting senior Indian law enforcement official Ajay Pal Sharma.

The report does not mention when the two suspected bully boyz were arrested.

Musa and Rubel are being interrogated by officials of the UP ATS and intelligence department, Sharma said.

According to sources in Indian law enforcement, the two JMB members were planning to carry out a major Death Eater attack in the National Capital Region (comprised of National Capital Territory of Delhi and several surrounding districts from the states of Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan).

A source in the Indian intelligence department had received a tip-off that some JMB members were collecting funds for their outfit.

When contacted, police's Anti Terrorism Unit (ATU) chief Additional Inspector General Mohammad Shafiqul Islam told the Dhaka Tribune that they are yet to hear from Indian authorities regarding the matter.

The JMB, founded in 1998 by Sheikh Abdur Rahman, was banned in 2005 after setting off about 500 bombs simultaneously across Bangladesh.
