US launches airstrikes on Taliban training camps
[LWJ] The US military launched a series of airstrikes on Taliban training camps located in Afghanistan’s remote northeastern province of Badakhshan, which borders Tajikistan. The camps were used by the East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM) and other terrorist groups.

“Over the past 96 hours, US forces conducted air operations to strike Taliban training facilities in Badakhshan province, preventing the planning and rehearsal of terrorist acts near the border with China and Tajikistan by such organizations as the East Turkistan Islamic Movement and others,” Resolute Support announced in a press release.

According to Resolute Support, the airstrikes also “destroyed stolen Afghan National Army vehicles that were in the process of being converted to vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.”
The secondaries must have been glorious.
The strike took place in the district of Warduj, a US military officer told The Washington Post. FDD’s Long War Journal has assessed Warduj to be under Taliban control. The district has changed hands several times over the past 4 years. The presence of camps in the district is further evidence that the Taliban controls the district.

Badakhshan, once a peaceful province, has become a Taliban hotbed since the US withdrew the bulk of its forces after the troop surge ended in 2012. Of Badakhshan’s 28 districts, LWJ assesses three to be Taliban controlled and another nine to be contested.
Another of President Obama’s achievements about to be erased by his successor, one hopes.
The East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), which is also known as the East Turkistan Islamic Party, is an al Qaeda-affiliated jihadist group based in Afghanistan and Pakistan and operates throughout Central Asia.

ETIM’s emir has served on al Qaeda’s shura, and it has operated a training camp that was sponsored by Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda. After the Taliban lost control of Afghanistan in 2001, the ETIM established training camps in Pakistan.

ETIM fighters have fought alongside the Taliban and other jihadist groups against Coalition and Afghan forces since the US first invaded Afghanistan in 2001.

The US has previously targeted ETIM leaders inside Pakistan in its drone campaign. In Aug. 2010, the US thought it killed Abdul Haq al Turkistani, the emir of the ETIM, in a drone strike in North Waziristan, Pakistan. Turkistani later re-emerged in a video in 2015, and said he was severely wounded in the 2010 drone strike. Abdul Haq issued another in 2016 that took al Qaeda’s side in its dispute with the Islamic State.

The US was also thought to have killed Emeti Yakuf (a.k.a. Abdul Shakoor Turkistani), in a drone strike in Pakistan in Aug. 2012. Yakuf took control of the ETIM as Turkistani was recovering from his injuries, and also took control of al Qaeda’s network in Pakistan’s tribal areas in 2010.

...Assembly of Islamic Clergy, or JUI, is a Pak Deobandi (Hanafi) political party. There are two main branches, one led by Maulana Fazlur Rahman, and one led by Maulana Samiul Haq.

Report: Congress 'Misled' About Taliban Five to 'Settle a Campaign Promise'
[PJ Media] As the House Armed Services Committee released a lengthy report on President Obama's swap of five Taliban detainees for Bowe Bergdahl, one former Guantanamo detainee took a bow this week as a new spokesman for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

The House report covers the transfer of Taliban communications chief Mohammad Nabi Omari, deputy minister of intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq, interior minister Khairulla Said Wali Khairkhwa, deputy minister of defense Mohammad Fazl, and senior military commander Mullah Norullah Noori in May 2014 to Qatar.

Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) noted that since that moment, the committee has been conducting an investigation into the actions of then-Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and senior Pentagon officials.

Taliban rejects Qatar's extension of travel ban for ex-Guantanamo detainees
[Khaama (Afghanistan)] The Talibs group in Afghanistan rejected that the authorities in Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates...
have extended travel ban for the group's big shots who were freed from Guantanamo last year.

A statement by the Taliban group said the released Taliban leaders "will live freely anywhere the Islamic Emirate deems necessary in accordance with the agreement."

"Reports circulated by the media about extension of conditions are untrue while the Islamic Emirate considers all further action by America concerning the stipulations as a violation of the principles of the agreement and international law," the statement added.

This comes as a US official said earlier this week that the authorities in Qatar have agreed to temporarily extend travel bans on five senior Taliban leaders released last year from the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

The official further added that the ban would remain in place until diplomatic talks for a longer-term solution are completed.

The five senior Taliban leaders -- Khairullah Syed Wali Khairkhwa, Mullah Mohamad Fazl, Mullah Norullah Noori, Abdul Haq Wasiq and Mohammad Nabi Omari, who were in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

Hizbullah, Syrian Army Seize Control of Strategic Tallet Moussa Hill
[AnNahar] Hizbullah
...Party of God, a Leb militia inspired, founded, funded and directed by Iran. Hizbullah refers to itself as The Resistance and purports to defend Leb against Israel, with whom it has started and lost one disastrous war to date, though it did claim victory...
and the Syrian army seized control Wednesday of the strategic Tallet Moussa hill in Syria's Qalamoun, as they pressed on with a major offensive against hard boy groups in the border region.

"The Syrian army and the fighters of the resistance (Hizbullah) have taken the strategic Tallet Moussa hill in Qalamoun," Hizbullah's al-Manar television reported.

The peak provides a line of sight over the border area.

Al-Manar said the allies have also made "major advances in their pursuit of takfiri
...an adherent of takfir wal hijra, an offshoot of Salafism that regards everybody who doesn't agree with them as apostates who most be killed...
groups in the mountains of Qalamoun, east of the Lebanese border."

Syrian forces and Hizbullah fighters are now in control of "more than 50 percent of the outskirts of Ras al-Maara," al-Manar added.

It said the advancing forces continued their onslaught Wednesday on the heights of the strategic Mount al-Barouh, where "tents belonging to the gunnies were torched and two military vehicles were destroyed, which left several of them dead or maimed."

Syrian state television
... and if you can't believe state television who can you believe?
said "army forces in cooperation with the Lebanese resistance (Hizbullah) pursued the remnants of terrorist forces in the Tallet Moussa area."

Hizbullah and the Syrian army also seized control of "strategic" Southern Aqabat al-Faskh hill west of Ras al-Maara, the Tallet al-Harf and Dahr al-Hawa hills, and "the entire al-Khashaat heights which lie in Lebanese territory on the border with Syria," al-Manar said.

It noted that the al-Khashaat area lies east of the outskirts of the Lebanese town of Nahle and "overlooks several border crossings and a large chunk of Arsal's outskirts."

Sky News television meanwhile said five Hizbullah fighters were killed in Wednesday's festivities in Qalamoun.

According to LBCI TV, Hizbullah is now in control of "40 square kilometers of Lebanese territory east of Nahle's outskirts, from Aqabet al-Bayda in the south to Qornet Abdul Haq in the north."

Last week, Hizbullah and Syrian forces controlled the strategic heights of Assal al-Ward in Qalamoun.

Some 3,000 Islamist-led gunnies are in the Qalamoun region, a Hizbullah commander recently said. He said Hizbullah and Syrian troops surround the Qalamoun from the north, the east and the south, as well as part of the west, squeezing the gunnies who remain there.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Wednesday that 18 Hizbullah fighters, 31 pro-regime troops and 36 rebels had died since battles restarted in Qalamun on May 4.

In April 2014, regime and Hizbullah fighters took control of most of Qalamun, but hundreds of rebel fighters remain entrenched in the mountainous region.

Jihadists have also launched attacks inside Leb from bases in the area, and Hizbullah chief His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah
The satrap of the Medes and the Persians in Leb...
said last week that the situation there required "radical treatment."

Hizbullah cites fear of gunnies sweeping through Shiite and Christian villages in Leb's Bekaa as one of the main reasons for its involvement in Syria.

The group's critics, however, argue that the group's intervention has acted as a magnet for the Lion of Islam groups that have launched deadly kabooms inside Leb.

Syrian Army, Resistance Fighters Capture New Key Posts in Al-Qalamoun
[ALMANAR.LB] Syrian army and resistance fighters seized three hilltops Tuesday from terrorist gunnies in Al-Qalamoun, the latest of a series of gains.

Mashrou' Haql Zeaiter hilltop and Jour Beit Abdul Haq are located west of the outskirts of the Syrian village of Ras al-Maara and east of the outskirts of the Lebanese town of Nahleh. These are the most recent hilltops to be captured adding to Abdul Haq hilltop which was captured earlier.

These gains in Al-Qalamoun region will prevent gunnies from launching attacks at the Bekaa Valley.

Militants who withdrew from hills and villages in Qalamoun are now positioned in Talit Moussa, the highest hilltop in the Qalamoun mountains. They also receded towards the outskirts of the Lebanese border town of Arsal and parts of the outskirts of Flita.

This victory adds to previous ones made by the Syrian army and resistance fighters, driving gunnies from about a dozen outposts and several towns, including Assal al-Ward and Al-Jibbeh. It also comes as forces of Evil were battling each other in western Qalamoun.

Musharraf summoned over cleric's mosque siege death
[ARABNEWS] A Pak court on Saturday said former military ruler Pervez Perv Musharraf
... former dictator of Pakistain, who was less dictatorial and corrupt than any Pak civilian government to date ...
must appear at a hearing in December over a holy man's death during a bloody mosque siege, rejecting his fears over security.

Musharraf faces a string of court cases dating back to his 1999-2008 rule, including over the death of radical holy man Abdul Rashid Ghazi, one of more than 100 people killed after Pak troops stormed the Red Mosque in Islamabad on July 10, 2007.

The mosque was the scene of a week-long military siege against murderous Moslems that unleashed a wave of Islamist attacks across Pakistain.

Musharraf's legal team has fought to avoid a court appearance over the case being pursued by Ghazi's family, citing ill health -- he has been receiving treatment for heart problems -- and security fears.

The former president narrowly escaped an apparent liquidation attempt in Islamabad in April as a roadside kaboom went off shortly before his convoy was due to pass.

"The court has rejected the exemption plea of General Pervez Musharraf in the case regarding killing of Abdul Rashid Ghazi and ordered him to appear on the next hearing of December 6," Abdul Haq Malik, the lawyer representing the holy man's son Haron-ur-Rashid Ghazi, told AFP.

Musharraf's lawyer said the former leader had not been satisfied with the security arrangements for the hearing, adding that the court has now ordered police to provide details for the ex-army chief's appearance in the court.

"We had requested the court to exempt General Musharraf for appearance in the court on medical grounds and security fears, because Islamabad's police have not responded to our request about security arrangements," said Musharraf's lawyer Akhtar Shah.

state.Miangul Aurangzeb joined army in 1948 and served as aide-de-camp (ADC) to the then president Ayub Khan.

He quit army after marrying the daughter of Ayub Khan in 1955 and joined politics.

Miangul Aurangzeb represented the princely state of Swat in the West Pakistain Assembly from 1956 to 1958. During the martial law of Ayub Khan, he was nominated to National Assembly in 1962.

He represented the princely state in National Assembly for another term when he was nominated again as member of the assembly in 1965. He was declared crown prince in 1966.

After the merger of Swat state into Pakistain in 1969, Miangul Aurangzeb continued his political activities and became Member of National Assembly from Swat in 1970 general elections. He had contested the election on Mohammedan League's ticket and defeated the candidate of National Awami Party.

Two brothers killed in 'sectarian attack'
[DAWN] KARACHI: Two young brothers were rubbed out in a suspected sectarian attack in Nazimabad on Monday evening, Gulbahar police said.

They added that Mohammed Bashir, 35, and Mohammed Nazir, 28, were riding a cycle of violence when armed motorcyclists attacked them close to the 'Matric Board Office' near a fuel station. The maimed brothers were taken to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where doctors pronounced Bashir as dead on arrival while Nazir died soon after arrival, said additional police surgeon Dr Abdul Haq.

The murder of the brothers appeared to be an outcome of sectarianism, said Gulbahar DSP Aijazuddin.

Bashir was a teacher at the Iranian Cultural Centre, where his brother was an employee, said a spokesperson for the Majlis-e- Wahdat-e-Moslemeen.

Condemning the 'assassination' of the brothers, the MWM official said the bodies were being sent to their native place in Gilgit after funeral prayers here.

The city police chief 'suspended/reverted' the Gulbahar SHO for his failure to curb 'sectarian killings' in the area, said a police spokesperson.
