[ShabelleMedia] Somali troops and their allied clan militia have vacated Qayib, a small town in the Galmudug ...a semiautonomous region in central Somalia, bordering Puntland on the north. Galmudug is not trying to obtain international recognition as a separate nation, but rather considers itself autonomous within the larger Somali federalism, for what that's worth... state of Somalia, in what could be a major setback to the ongoing military operation against al-Shabaab ...... Somalia's version of the Taliban ...Arabic for students... , functioning as an arm of al-Qaeda... .
The troops set up a defensive position in a nearby Ali Wayt, 17 kilometers away from Qayib, as al-Shabaab tries to retake the area without a battle.
The retreat comes days after al-Shabaab launched a major attack on the military bases in Qayib last Friday that killed dozens of people from both sides.
Galmudug is one of the regional states that joined the FGS’s offensive against al-Shabaab and it regained control of locations, including Qayib since September.
[BREITBART] Marcy Landolfo, who owns the Rains PDX store in Democrat-run Portland, Oregon, is fed up after experiencing break-in number 15.
Landolfo told KATU she decided to shut it down because, "The products that are being targeted are the very expensive winter products and I just felt like the minute I get those in the store they’re going to get stolen," the outlet reported Saturday.
She is also concerned for her employees’ safety and acknowledged, "The problem is, as small businesses, we cannot sustain those types of losses and stay in business. I won’t even go into the numbers of how much has been out of pocket."
A notice on the shop’s door said the location was permanently closed and told visitors to use the website instead.
The notice also told customers:
Our city is in peril. Small businesses (and large) cannot sustain doing business in our city’s current state. We have no protection or recourse against the criminal behavior that goes unpunished. Do not be fooled into thinking that insurance companies cover losses. We have sustained 15 break-ins. We have not received any financial reimbursement since the 3rd.
It is a Liberal Socialist Democrat run operation now.
So why are they bothering to lock the doors?
Put up an Honor Box, so that their fellow comrades, who have been oppressed by the White Capitalist Class, can pay what they can afford.
Or, wouldn't their ANTI-FArt / BLOM comrades look out for them?

[IsraelTimes] Military says suspect hurled Molotov cocktail at troops, hours after Paleostinian attacker killed following ramming, and three others killed in festivities with military
A Paleostinian man was killed during festivities with Israeli troops in the central West Bank on Tuesday afternoon, Paleostinian health officials said, marking the fifth fatality in a day. The Paleostinian Authority Health Ministry said the man was shot by Israeli forces in the village of al-Mughayyir, near Ramallah. He was identified by Paleostinian media as Raed Ghazi Naasan, a member of the Paleostinian Authority security services.
The Israel Defense Forces said Paleostinians had hurled stones at soldiers who arrived in the town to notify residents of illegal construction. Some parts of al-Mughayyir are considered Area C, where Israel maintains civilian control. A suspect hurling a Molotov cocktail at troops was shot at, the IDF said, adding that "hits were identified."
One Israeli soldier was also lightly hurt by the stone-throwing, and taken to a hospital for further treatment, the IDF added.
Hours earlier, a Paleostinian attacker was killed after he carried out a car-ramming attack, and early Tuesday, three Paleostinians were killed in separate festivities with troops.
In the Tuesday morning attack, Rani Mamoun Fayz Abu Ali, 45, from the town of Beitunia, seriously maimed an Israeli soldier near the settlement of Migron, north of Jerusalem, before fleeing the scene. He was rubbed out by coppers after a brief chase.
Earlier that morning, the Paleostinian Authority Health Ministry said brothers Jawad Rimawi, 22, and Dhafer Rimawi, 21, were killed when Israeli troops opened fire on them in the town of Kafr Ein. The IDF said festivities had erupted in the town during a routine military operation.
In the pre-dawn hours of Tuesday, a Paleostinian man — identified as Mufid Khalil — was killed in festivities with troops, after two military vehicles broke down in a town near Hebron. The IDF said the two jeeps, on a routine patrol, got stuck in the city due to "technical malfunctions."
Paleostinians opened fire, and others threw stones and bombs at the soldiers, who responded with live fire and other riot dispersal means, the military said.
