Bid to smuggle 2kgs of heroin from Kabul to Delhi foiled, smuggler arrested
[KhaamaPress] The security forces arrested a smuggler who was attempting to smuggle 2 kilograms of heroin from Kabul to Delhi, the capital of India.

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) in a statement said the Border Police forces on Wednesday arrested the smuggler from Hamid Maybe I'll join the Taliban Karzai
...Former president of Aghanistan, part of the problem not part of the solution...
International Airport.

The statement further added that the smuggler had placed the heroin inside a hand bag in a professional manner and wanted to smuggle it to Delhi.

However,
the way to a man's heart remains through his stomach...
the interior ministry said the Border Police forces recognized the smuggler before he manages to smuggle the drugs to India.

This comes as the Indian police forces have arrested a number of smugglers in India and confiscated drugs worth billions during the recent weeks.

#1  Some smuggler. He brought the same face he did last three times he was caught, processed and deported. Somebody tell the losers sending him, this particular consignment ain't NEVER reaching.

There are three levels of activity to final sale, involving different types of criminal:

  • Players - the owners/pushers. They own nothing, not the land, not the labor, not the risk, invest only in muscle and are related to taliban or raise their own militias.

  • Poor farmers, mules working off debts, husbands and fathers forced to earn ransom, by kidnapping/threatening their families. Most of the poor f↺ckers we catch. After investigating their stories, we usually let them go.

  • Local mafias. Dons in India and Pakistan who then distribute the product through drug addicts and local enforcers.


One gram of heroin leaves the first point of sale for Rs.2K-3K ($29 - 44), and ends up all cut and packed, in the markets for $45 to $520, depending on who's buying. Several entry points exist on the border depending upon the source of product.

The Punjab route has remained compromised for years, because that's a liberal Congress stronghold. Same everywhere, hunhh?

The maritime route from Afghanistan to the Makran coast, where the coastlines of Pakistan and Iran meet is becoming increasingly popular. From there, the consignments can be taken across to western markets via east Africa. Small quantities of product As much as can be held up the ass or in a digestive tract. Ughh ! now reach Delhi either by air or even postal services where it has to be collected over months before being distributed further to other cities like Mumbai.

Since May this year, due to surprising cohesion between police and military, 350 Kilos have been destroyed, and several entry points and associated auxiliaries deepsixed. Also, unlike in the previous administrations, the incumbent politicians do not have friends and cousins swimming in the trade, so we can safely destroy the shit. In the past 45 days alone we have managed to eliminate twelve major networks of the third kind. Their assets were all seized, some of were... uhh, 'permanently absconded'.
Indians don't usually have a problem with intoxication. But Gawd help people profiting off of us.

Arabia
Rebel missile attack, suicide bombs kill 51 in Yemen's Aden, Saudi sez Iran is hidden hand
[AlAhram] Rebels in 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...
fired a ballistic missile Thursday at a military parade in the southern port city of Aden and coordinated suicide kabooms targeted a cop shoppe in another part of the city. The attacks killed at least 51 people and maimed dozens, officials said.

The missile hit in the city's neighborhood of Breiqa where a military parade was underway by forces loyal to the United Arab Emirates, a member of the Saudi-led coalition that has been fighting the Iran-backed Iran's Houthi sock puppets
...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 legitimate Yemeni government has accused the them of having ties to the Iranian government. Honest they did. 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 They like shooting off... ummm... missiles that they would have us believe they make at home in their basements. On the plus side, they did murder Ali Abdullah Saleh, which was the only way the country was ever going to be rid of him...
rebels since 2015 in support of Yemen's internationally recognized government.

The missile attack killed at least 40, a health official said.

The parade was taking place at the pro-coalition al-Galaa camp in Aden, said a security official, without give a breakdown for the casualties. Since the rebels seized the country's capital, Sanaa, in 2014, Aden has served as the temporary seat of the government.

The website of the Houthi rebels, al-Masirah, quoted front man Brig. Gen. Yehia Sarea as saying the rebels had fired a medium-range ballistic missile at the parade, leaving scores of casualties, including military commanders.

The security official told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named that UAE-backed commander Monier al Yafie, also known by his nickname Aboul Yamama,
Yes, we know. Go on, get it out of your system, dear Reader.
was among those killed. He was delivering a speech during the parade, the official said.

A short while earlier, a car, a bus and three cycle of violences laden with explosives targeted a cop shoppe in the city's Omar al-Mokhtar neighborhood during a morning police roll-call, said Abdel Dayem Ahmed, a senior police official. Four jacket wallahs were involved in the attack, which killed 11 and maimed at least 29, Ahmed told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named.

No group immediately grabbed credit for the cop shoppe bombings but both Yemen's al-Qaeda branch and an Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really 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 western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
group affiliate have exploited the chaos of the country's war between the Houthis and the government forces, backed by the Saudi-led coalition.
Hopefully this time an American drone or satellite feed tracked them back to their base...
A Yemeni health official said that along with the 51 killed, as many as 56 were maimed in Thursday's attacks. Both the security and health official spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to news hounds.

Charred remains of the attackers' vehicles were seen at the scene of the cop shoppe attack, next to a meter-deep crater caused by the bombings. Doctors Without Borders tweeted that dozens of maimed were transferred to the aid group's surgical hospital in Aden, where families of the victims had gathered.

Thursday's attacks were the deadliest in Aden since November 2017, when the IS affiliate in Yemen targeted the city's security headquarters, leaving 15 dead, mostly coppers.

Deputy Interior Minister Ali Nasser Lakhsha told news hounds as he inspected the site of the bombed-out cop shoppe that it was unclear who was behind the assault.

``This is a horrific terrorist attack targeting our police,'' the minister said.

Thursday's attacks in Aden came just weeks after the UAE began withdrawing thousands of its troops from Yemen, leaving behind what it says are some 90,000 trained local forces. The UAE also has high level commanders and forces in Yemen, but has pulled back 50-75% of its forces, insiders have said.

Europe
German City Rocked After Kazakh Man Hacked to Death by Syrian Migrant in Broad Daylight
Sudden Jihad Syndrome caused him to leave home carrying a sword.
Either that, or his daughter's pregnancy. Or his wife's.
[BREITBART] A local news bureau reported "shock" in the German city of Stuttgart after a 36-year-old man was hacked to death with what appeared to be a katana-type sword in the middle of the street on Wednesday afternoon.

The attack took place in front of dozens of witnesses and was filmed by passers-by on mobile phones from multiple angles, and saw a man, a 36-year old German resident of Kazakhstan origin, lying on the floor and being repeatedly hacked at and stabbed with a sword, reports German newspaper Bild.

Video recordings from the scene seen by Breitbart London show the victim lying helpless as the attacker raises the weapon above his head, reportedly bringing it down on the head and upper chest of the victim repeatedly while witnesses can be heard screaming and calling for police in the background.

The perpetrator expeditiously departed at a goodly pace on a bicycle and was given chase by coppers supported by a helicopter. The suspect was reported by regional newspaper Neue Ruhr Zeitung to be a 28-year-old man of Syrian migrant origin who arrived in Germany in 2015. He has been arrested and will appear in court on Thursday afternoon. The suspect is being interrogated by police with the assistance of an interpreter.

The paper further reports the suspect and the Kazakh-origin victim were known to each other, having previously been roommates. A police front man appealed to members of the public to stop sharing videos of the attack on social media, warning it could have "criminal consequences".

The savage attack hit the headlines as Germany remained in a national discussion triggered by another shocking act of migrant violence which took place on Monday. Forty-year-old Eritrea
...is run by the People's Front for Democracy and Justice (PFDJ), with about the amounts of democracy and justice you'd expect from a party with that name. National elections have been periodically scheduled and cancelled; none have ever been held in the country. The president, Isaias Afewerki, has been in office since independence in 1993 and will probably die there of old age...
n migrant Habte Araya was arrested after attempting to push three people underneath a moving express train at Frankfurt central station. An elderly woman fell on the station platform and received light injuries, but a mother and her eight-year-old son fell onto the tracks where the child was killed instantly.

The migrant allegedly responsible for the attack had previously been hailed as an example of successful migrant integration into Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...

India-Pakistan
Pakistani Booby Trap to Slaughter Hundreds of Hindus Found
[TimesOfIndia] SRINAGAR: Pakistan-based terrorists are planning to target the Amarnath Yatra
Pointless pilgrimage made by idiots every year, who have to be protected more from themselves and nature than jihadis.
in the Kashmir Valley but security forces are up to the task to foil any such design, the army said on Friday.

General officer commanding of Army's 15 Corps Lt General KJS Dhillon's statement came after searches in the past few days by security forces led to the recovery of a Pakistan-made mine and a huge cache of arms from along the Amarnath Yatra route. The Corps commander said Pakistan and its army were desperate to disrupt peace in Kashmir Valley.

"Last three to four days, we were getting specific and confirmed intelligence inputs that terrorists led by Pakistan and Pakistan Army are trying to target the Shri Amarnathji yatra which is going on," Dhillon told a joint press conference with Jammu and Kashmir Police chief Dilbagh Singh here.

What was found stashed in the cave : IEDs and related equipment, an AP mine with a proud 'Pakistani Ordnance' etched on it, serials indicating the manufacture is recent. An M-24 rifle with Leupold scope, several rounds of ammo. Additionally, a makeshift hide had been set up on an elevated position overlooking a pilgrim route. There were indentations in the rock skirting along the route itself in places, where it appeared dirt and rock had been dug out, so as to make space for big bangs later. If a thorough inspection of the route had been skipped, unsuspecting crowds of people would have been blown up and the stragglers picked off before the plastic and stamped steel wielding security forces could react.

TTP warns against playing music, women going out alone in Miramshah
[DAWN] MIRAMSHAH: The banned Tehrik-e-Taliban
...Arabic for students...
Pakistain (TTP) has warned people against playing loud music, polio
...Poliomyelitis is a disease caused by infection with the poliovirus. Between 1840 and the 1950s, polio was a worldwide epidemic. Since the development of polio vaccines the disease has been largely wiped out in the civilized world. However, since the vaccine is known to make Moslem pee-pees shrink and renders females sterile, bookish, and unsubmissive it is not widely used by the turban and automatic weapons set. Currently the disease is only found in Pakistain and Afghanistain...
vaccination and women going out without being accompanied by a man, saying people defying the warning will face consequences.

The one-page message in Urdu seen by people in Miranshah
... headquarters of al-Qaeda in Pakistain and likely location of Ayman al-Zawahiri. The Haqqani network has established a ministate in centered on the town with courts, tax offices and lots of madrassas...
, the headquarters of North Wazoo tribal district, on Wednesday cautioned the people: "We remind you [residents] that similar statements issued by Taliban several times in the past had fallen on deaf ears, but this time we are going to take to task those who violate the Taliban order."

The message further said: "There will be no use of DJs, neither inside the house nor in open fields and those ignoring the warning will be responsible for consequences."

Polio workers have been asked to do finger-marking of children during the vaccination campaign, but told not to administer polio drops to children or be ready to face dire consequences for defying the instruction.

The pamphlet prohibited playing loud music on computer and other shops with a warning that any place from where songs were heard could be blown up any time.

"Women shouldn’t go out of their homes alone as it is harmful for our society. There is one informer of Mujahideen in every three people and it was misconception on the part of the people to think we will not get information about non-compliance of our order. Follow the order or be ready to face worst consequences," the message concluded.

#1  The people who endorse controlled annihilation and depopulation seem right at times like this. What good is life under a daesh like regime ? You're better off dead, than dragging your family through a fate worse than hell everyday.

Life, everywhere wants to live, be free... these offspring of demons want to reduce it to a mockery of the freedoms God gave man, and bring despair to humanity. In trying to fight them, when we exceed their viciousness, we find ourselves farther from God.

Evil wins both ways.

Iraq
Six Dead in IS Attacks on Security Forces in Northern Iraq
[AnNahar] Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really 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 western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
group attacks on security forces north of the Iraqi capital killed six of their members overnight, officials said Thursday.

Three coppers and two members of the Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary force died in an attack on a checkpoint south of the city of Tikrit, a security official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity
... for fear of being murdered...
The attack sparked a three-hour gunbattle, he said.

Some 300 kilometres (180 miles) to the east, in the Khanaqin area, the jihadist group fired mortars at a post held by the Asayish security force of Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region, a Kurdish official said.

An Asayish member was killed in an hour-long battle before the assailants fled, local commander Naucherwan Ahmed said.

(ISIS) snuffies killed four Kurdish security members and maimed eight others in an assault on a checkpoint near Kifri south of Kirkuk Wednesday night.

A group of ISIS fighters attacked the checkpoint manned by Kurdish security forces known as Asayesh in Kolajo in the Garmiyan region at 11:00 pm. Commander of Garmiyan operations Aso Jalal, as well as an Asayesh member named Haidar Fuad, were among those killed, according to Khalil Khudada, head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) office in Jalawla.

"ISIS launched the attack in the beginning with mortar shells, firing some mortars on the center of Kolajo town," Khudada said. "They later attacked the Gulala Asayesh base with snipers."

Khudada added that after ISIS attacked the Asayesh base, Kurdish Counter-Terror Group (CTG) forces rushed to repel them. Then, a landmine which the snuffies had laid targeted a vehicle of the counter terror forces and killed two of its members.

Among the maimed are two civilians, four CTG members and two Asayesh members, according to Khudada.

"Two of the maimed are at death's door," and were rushed to Sulaimani for treatment, he said.

Kifri is in the Diyala province and is 188 kilometers southeast of Erbil between Kalar and Tuz Khurmatu. Diyala is disputed between both the Kurdistan Region and Iraqi federal governments.

ISIS remnants have maintained a presence in the Hamrin mountains in the area, despite Peshmerga and Iraqi Security Forces' operations.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Two Gazans arrested after crossing into Israel with knife
[IsraelTimes] The Israel Defense Forces says troops have arrested two Paleostinian boys who crossed the border fence separating Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
and Israel.

The two, aged 15 and 11, are found carrying a knife and taken for questioning, the military says in a statement.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Syrian state media: Israeli missile hits in Quneitra
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] An Israeli missile hit a village in the Quneitra countryside in Syria’s southwest near the frontier between the two countries on Thursday, Syrian state media said.
Also known as the Syrian part of the Golan Heights.
State news agency SANA described it as "an Israeli attack" that caused only material damages.

During Syria’s eight-year war, Israel has carried out strikes in Syria which it says have targeted regional arch rival Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
and Tehran’s ally Hezbollah.
The Times of Israel adds:
The Al Arabiya network said the alleged Israeli missile strike in Syria followed movement by members of the Hezbollah terror group in the area.

Hebrew-language reports said residents of the Golan Heights heard explosions.

Video allegedly from Caspian ports of Iran shows possible electronic warfare equipment on trucks, seemingly of Russian origin
[TWITTER]

Yes, this machinery is mounted on Russian Kamaz trucks. But we don't know what's in them: Communications, electronic warfare, radio direction finding. Could be anything.
