Afghan commandos launch coordinated raids against Taliban hideouts in Dasht Archi
[KhaamaPress] The Special Forces of the Afghan Military have launched coordinated raids against the hideouts of the Talibs in Dasht Archi district of Kunduz province.

The 209th Shaheen Corps of the Afghan Military in the North said the operations are being conducted in the district and so far at least 13 snuffies have been killed.

According to a statement released by 209th Shaheen Corps, at least 7 snuffies have also sustained injuries during the same operations.

The statement further added that the operations were conducted in the vicinity of Qarloq district with the support of the Air and Artillery forces.

The commander of the 10th Kandak of Afghan commandos Gen. Mohammad Ali said the operations have been launched to eliminate the hideouts of the murderous Moslems and their fighters.

He said the operations are still being conducted and will continue until the district has been fully cleared of the Death Eaters.

This comes as the Office of the National Security Council said last week that the National Defense and Security Forces have been instructed to increase raids against the Taliban

[IsraelTimes] The US military announces the latest of several deadly Arclight airstrikes this week against al-Shabaab
... an Islamic infestation centering on Somalia...
bully boyz in Somalia, as it targets a region well north of where the al-Qaeda-linked fighters control large parts of the country.

The US Africa Command statement says two new strikes killed six fighters and destroyed a weapons cache yesterday near Harardere. That al-Shabaab-controlled community last month was targeted by the deadliest US airstrike in almost a year, with dozens of jihadists killed.

The US has now carried out 35 airstrikes this year against al-Shabaab, Africa’s deadliest Islamic murderous Moslem group.

Two airstrikes on Monday killed 37 bully boyz and one on Tuesday killed seven.

This week’s airstrikes have been carried out in Mudug region, well north of the capital, Mogadishu.

Attacks kill 100 Nigerian troops; IS offshoot suspected
[Dawn] Attacks blamed on West Africa branch of the Death Eater 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 have killed around 100 soldiers in northeast Nigeria
... a particularly crimson stretch of Islam's bloody border...
since Sunday, five security sources said on Thursday.

Islamist Death Eaters had already killed hundreds of soldiers in the region in recent months, forcing a turnaround in the course of a war which President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has frequently claimed to have won. Buhari will seek a second term in February 2019.

Earlier on Thursday, the Nigerian senate suspended its session in honour of what it said were 44 dead soldiers after an attack in Metele in the northeastern state of Borno on Sunday.

A presidency front man said the military would issue a statement.

Military spokesmen did not respond to repeated attempts to reach them for comment.

Four of the security sources said around 100 had died in that attack alone, though the corpse count was not final.

The fifth said 96 had died in the northeast in recent days, mostly in the Metele attack, but also in others.

Karachi attack: Four killed as gunmen try to storm China consulate
[BBC] Gunmen have killed at least four people in an attack on the Chinese consulate in the Pakistani port city of Karachi.

Gunshots were heard at about 09:30 local time (04:30 GMT) outside the consulate in the upmarket Clifton area. Police shot dead three attackers.

Separatist militants who oppose Chinese investment projects in western Pakistan say they carried out the attack.

In another incident on Friday, at least 20 people were killed in a bomb attack in north-west Pakistan.

The blast occurred in a mostly Shia neighbourhood in Orakzai district. Police say a suicide bomber on a motorbike drove into a crowded marketplace.

Pakistan's Shia minority has often been targeted by Sunni extremists.

Three gunmen tried to enter the consulate but were stopped by security guards at a checkpoint, reports said. Two of those killed in the attack were police officers.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing a blast, and local TV channels broadcast images of a plume of smoke. There is a heavy police presence in the area which has been cordoned off.

All the staff inside the consulate are safe, China said. The Foreign Ministry in Beijing called for extra measures to protect Chinese citizens in Pakistan.

"At the same time we mourn the deaths of the Pakistani police and think of their families at this time," a spokesman said.

A separatist group, the Balochistan Liberation Army, said it carried out the attack. It is one of a number of separatist groups operating in the restive province, which has seen a long running nationalist insurgency.

"We have been seeing the Chinese as an oppressor, along with Pakistani forces," a spokesman for the group told the AFP news agency.

Over the years construction projects and Chinese workers in Balochistan have been repeatedly targeted by militants but this is one of the most prominent such attacks to date.

Balochistan is at the heart of an ambitious Chinese project, the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which is a string of huge investments by China in Pakistani infrastructure seeking to link its western Xinjiang province with the Arabian Sea port of Gwadar in Balochistan.

As China is such a close ally to Pakistan and has poured billions into the nation, this incident will deeply concern authorities who have described this investment as a "game changer", says the BBC's Secunder Kermani in Islamabad.

Balochistan itself is a sparsely populated region, rich in gas and coal reserves, as well as copper and gold.

Yet it has remained Pakistan's most impoverished area and Baloch nationalists have long accused the central government of exploitation and denying the province its due rights.

[Dawn] Two police officials have bit the dust in an exchange of fire near the Chinese Consulate in Bloody Karachi
...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous...
's Clifton area, DawnNewsTV reported on Friday.

Deputy Inspector General (DIG) South Javed Alam Odho confirmed the death of the two coppers.

According to DawnNewsTV, the exchange of fire started around 9.30am. An kaboom, the nature of which has not been determined as yet, was also heard in the area.

One person, whose identity has not been ascertained, has also been admitted to the hospital at death's door, DawnNewsTV said.

Additional Inspector General of Police Dr Amir Ahmed Sheikh said that the firing has ended and the area is now being cleared by police and Rangers.

"I will be able to give you [the media] a clearer picture about what happened later in the day," AIG Sheikh said while acknowledging the efforts made by the law enforcement agencies in containing the attack.

"Police, rangers were all on duty when the attack happened. The attackers... weren't able to enter the Chinese embassy compound. Three were killed. A Bomb Disposal Squad team is checking the area for kabooms." the AIG said while reiterating that the details of the case will be shared with the media later in the day.

Defence contractor and analyst Ikram Sehgal ‐ whose guards have been posted at the consulate ‐ said that the attackers first exchanged fire with police.

"After the coppers were martyred, they proceeded towards the gate of the consulate. However,
a good lie finds more believers than a bad truth...
the guards quickly closed the gate, civilians with consular business were ushered inside and the Chinese staff were taken to a safe location," Seghal said while speaking to DawnNewsTV.

Shortly after the incident, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Wormtongue Qureshi condemned the incident and praised the way the attack was handled by the law enforcement agencies.

"This was a sad incident. The two hard boyz involved in the incident have been killed. We are in contact with the Chinese consul general," the foreign minister said.

He added: "Pakistain and China together will defeat the forces that wish to halt development [in the country]."

Governor Sindh Imran Ismail has taken notice of the incident and called for a report on the matter from the Sindh inspector general of police, DawnNewsTV said.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has also taken notice of the incident. He contacted the Chinese consul general and assured him that the situation will be taken under control.

According to DawnNewsTV the area is considered a red zone and is already heavily guarded. The schools and eateries located in the area have been locked down until the area is cleared.

This is a developing story that is being updated as the situation evolves. Initial reports in the media can sometimes be inaccurate. We will strive to ensure timeliness and accuracy by relying on credible sources, such as concerned, qualified authorities and our staff news hounds.
Update at 1:30 a.m. ET:
Two coppers and a civilian bit the dust during an exchange of fire between security forces and the attackers. Three bad boyz were potted in the operation, according to Sindh Police and the army's media wing.

The heavily-guarded E-Street neighbourhood, which is considered a red zone, is home to a number of upscale restaurants, diplomatic missions and schools. The schools and eateries have been locked down until a clearance operation is concluded.

Pakistan rejects India's allegation of its involvement in Amritsar blast
[Times of India] ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday rejected allegations of its involvement in the Amritsar terror attack in which three people were killed amidst Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh's accusation that the grenade used was similar to the ones being manufactured by the Pakistan Army.

Singh said that the grenade attack, in which three people were killed and over 20 injured, seemed to carry Pakistan's signature.

Initial investigations indicated that the "grenade used was similar to the ones being manufactured by the Pakistani Army Ordinance factory," he said.

Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal rejected Singh's allegations in his weekly press briefing.

"Pakistan categorically rejects these allegations. India is a serial alleger and it has become its second nature to blame Pakistan for any negative development without blinking an eye," Faisal said.

Israel says it uncovered West Bank Hamas cell planning major bombing attacks
[IsraelTimes] Paleostinians with permits to enter Israel for medical care conveyed messages from terror leaders in Gazoo to operatives in the West Bank, Shin Bet security service says

The goal of the West Bank cells was to conduct large terror attacks against Israeli military and civilians targets at the same time as rockets and mortar shells were being fired from the Gazoo Strip, in order to challenge Israel on two fronts simultaneously, the internal security service said.
The Shin Bet security service on Thursday said it recently uncovered a Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", terror network in the West Bank that was acting on orders from the group’s leaders in Gazoo, with plans to conduct large-scale bombing attacks against targets in the West Bank and Israel.

According to the Shin Bet, members of the various terror cells prepared to manufacture explosives and were instructed to "select crowded sites as targets for the attacks."
