Commander Alipur released after two days of protests in Kabul and elsewhere
See here for politics and background on the good commander.
Commander Alipur released a day after his controversial arrest in Kabul

[KhaamaPress] The commander of the public uprising forces Alipur alias commander Shamsher has been released from the custody of the Afghan intelligence.

The Office of the Second Vice President in a statement confirmed that commander Alipur has been released from the custody of the National Directorate of Intelligence.

Commander Alipur was detained by the National Directorate of Security forces from Qala Qazi area of the city on Sunday morning.

The Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS), earlier had confirmed the arrest of a local uprising commander Alipur alia commander Shamsher in Kabul.

According to a statement released by NDS earlier this afternoon, commander Alipur was arrested from Qala Qazi area of the city on Sunday.

The statement further added that commander Alipur has been arrested on charges of illegal armed activities, extortion, and attacks on Afghan security forces.

Alipoor Supporters Protest For The Second Day In Kabul

[ToloNews] Supporters of local commander Alipoor, also known as Commander Shamsheer, who was arrested on Sunday, have again taken to the streets in Kabul on Monday after a day of protest action on Sunday.

By early Monday morning a few hundred people had already gathered on the streets, calling for the release of Alipoor, who was arrested by the National Directorate of Security (NDS).

Alipoor is a local commander in the central provinces, who according to protesters, has been fighting the Taliban in recent weeks in at least three provinces.

On Sunday afternoon, the Dasht-e-Barchi protest, in Kabul city, turned violent when demonstrators started stoning police. Police in turn fired into the air to disperse the crowd but armed protesters reportedly returned fire.

On Monday, Alipoor’s supporters came together in Pul-e-Sokhta area in PD6 in Kabul and called for his immediate release.

The angry protesters said Alipoor has not been fighting government forces, but had been fending off the Taliban in parts of Maidan Wardak, Ghor and Daikundi provinces - under the structure of the local uprising forces.

The protesters also said they will not end their protest until government releases Alipoor.

“We want to know why Alipoor has been arrested,” one protester said.

“We will not stop our protest if Alipoor is not freed,” another protester said.

“He has not committed any crime, he was just fighting Taliban,” another protester said.

Kabul police chief Sayed Mohammad Roshandel told TOLOnews on Monday that protesters had set fire to police check posts in the area and were clashing with police forces.

Roshandel said a number of protesters had been armed and that over 20 security force members were wounded during apparent shooting incidents.

According to Roshandel, Alipoor is an illegal armed commander and was arrested on the orders of the Attorney General’s Office.

“He has been arrested on the orders of the Attorney General’s Office. He will be released after the investigations if he is proven innocent,” said Roshandel.

By late Sunday afternoon, protesters were prevented from marching to the city center by security forces, who closed off roads in the Pul-e-Sokhta area.

By 6pm, protesters were still in the area and shooting in Dasht-e-Barchi was still heard.

A number of security forces were also positioned in Dehmazang area, to prevent protesters from breaking through the security belt in western Kabul and getting through to the Presidential Palace.

Many roads leading from the western part of Kabul towards the city center have been closed since Sunday.

After the Kabul demonstration started, protesters also took to the streets in Bamiyan and in Mazar-e-Sharif, in Balkh province. They were also protesting against Alipoor’s arrest.

By early Monday, dozens of protesters were also marching through the city of Mazar for the second day.

Wahdat Islami demands unconditional release of commander Alipur

[KhaamaPress] The Wahdat Islami party has reacted to the arrest of a local uprising commander Alipur alias commander Shamsher in Kabul.

Wahdat Islami party in a statement has said the party condemns the arrest of the local uprising forces commander of Midan Wardak commander Alipur, calling it a provocative and irresponsible move.

The statement further added that the party demands unconditional release of the commander from the custody of the security forces.

Coalition forces reject involvement in commander Alipur’s arrest in Kabul

[KhaamaPress] The coalition forces have rejected refuted rumors suggesting that the U.S. forces were involved in the arrest of the uprising commander Alipur in Kabul.

A spokesman for the U.S. military in Afghanistan Colonel David Butler has said neither U.S. Forces nor Resolute Support had anything to do with the arrest Alipur.

Col. Butler further added that National Directorate of Security will also confirm this information.

This comes as rumors started to surface following the arrest of commander Alipur suggesting that the U.S. forces were involved in his arrest.

Africa Horn
Militants kill cleric, 14 others in Somalia car bomb
[PRESSTV] al-Shabaab
... Somalia's version of the Taliban, functioning as an arm of al-Qaeda...
button men and a boom-mobileer have struck a religious center in central Somalia, killing a holy man and at least 14 of his followers, a police officer says.

The group was forced from Mogadishu in 2011 and most towns and cities but it retains a strong presence outside the capital and launches frequent bombings and other attacks in a campaign to topple the federal government.

"The (security) operation is now over. al-Shabaab killed 15 people including the holy man, his wife, his followers and his guards," Captain Nur Mohammed, a police officer, told Rooters from Galkayo by phone.

"Three bully boyz who stormed the center were also rubbed out."

The group took responsibility for the attack and put the number of dead at 26. It said some soldiers who responded to the first attack also died as they tried to remove a second boom-mobile.

"We killed 26 people, including the owner of the center, his followers, his bodyguards and soldiers," Abdiasis Abu Musab, al-Shabaab’s military operation front man, said.

Abdirashid Hashi, the governor of Mudug region, told Rooters that al-Shabaab had threatened Abdiweli on numerous occasions.

An elder in Galkayo said Abdiweli had provided free boarding to former pirates, street boys and jobless men and they became his followers.

"He used to tell teenagers: "If you were a pirate, or a bandit, stop it and come and eat food and sleep here. God will forgive your sins. Some other ignorant teenagers thought he was as saint ... and so joined him," local elder Ismail Abdirahman told Rooters.

"We understood there was something wrong with him but we could not take him to court because the man was well-armed."

In a separate attack in Mogadishu on Monday, at least three people died when a boom-mobile went kaboom! in front of shops in the Wadajir district of the capital, police and witnesses said.

ISIS claims attack on police station south of Libya
[Libya Observer] ISIS has grabbed credit for the attack on a cop shoppe in Tazirbu town north of Kufra on Friday, which left dead and maimed, in addition to others kidnapped, threatening that more attacks are to come.

In a statement issued on its mouthpiece news outlet Amaq, on Telegram, ISIS said that its fighters attacked Tazirbu cop shoppe and left 29 casualties between dead and injured.

It also said that it had captured others while searching for desperados in the town.

ISIS has staged out several attacks in Libya since losing its main stronghold of Sirte at the hands of al-Bunyan al-Marsous Force in late 2016.

Europe
5 Egyptians accused of smuggling migrants direct to Sicily
[AlAhram] Italian police say they have detained five Egyptians accused of smuggling a boatload of 264 migrants colonists from Libya to Sicily.

The overloaded fishing boat pulled into the Ragusa port Saturday, its third day at sea, and the migrants colonists disembarked and were registered.

Police said Monday that the migrants colonists, most of them from 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...
, identified the five Egyptian crew who charged them 1,500 euros apiece for the passage.

While most migrants colonists are rescued at sea before reaching Italia, some do occasionally make it if their original boat is sturdy enough.

Overall, migrant crossings to Italia began decreasing in 2017, after Italia's previous government negotiated deals with Libyan leaders and militias. The numbers have dropped further after the current government cracked down on humanitarian groups operating rescue missions in the Mediterranean.

Somali Muslim Arrested for Attempting to Mow Down Jews With Car in Front of L.A. Synagogue
[PJMEDIA] Los Angeles police are investigating an incident Friday night as a potential hate crime after a Somali man, 32-year-old Mohamed Mohamed Abdi, attempted to run down worshipers standing outside a Hancock Park synagogue.

Security video from Friday night shows the driver making a hard U-turn.

CBSLA interviewed one of the victims, who says he and his friend were the target.

"We both scrambled in different directions so he slammed on his brakes and missed us thank God," the victim, who asked to remain anonymous, said.

A second security video shows the driver reversing and trying to hit them again.

"He clearly was going at us and it was even more clear on round two," said the victim.

It happened on La Brea in Hancock Park, on a corner with a couple synagogues and on the Sabbath where many walk around in traditional attire.

"Why he chose us? Probably because of the yarmulkes on our heads," the victim said.

Abdi is currently being held on $55,000 bail.

This incident occurred less than a month after the horrific Pittsburgh synagogue attack that left 11 dead.
Update from the LA Times at 3:00pm ET:
A native of Mogadishu in Somalia, Abdi is a U.S. citizen who emigrated to the Seattle area several years ago, Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Horace Frank said. He rented a car and drove to Los Angeles sometime last week, though it was not clear if he knew anyone in the area or why he came to the city.

Investigators did not say if Abdi specifically targeted Congregation Bais Yehuda.

Frank said Abdi’s chosen method of attack ‐ driving toward a crowd of pedestrians ‐ and the fact that he was carrying a knife were "very concerning." He noted that Abdi’s actions mirror those of other terror attacks in recent years, where so-called lone wolf assailants have used a rented vehicle rather than a firearm or bomb to cause carnage in open spaces.

#1  Abdi is currently being held on $55,000 bail.

So if someone gives the police $55k then Mohamhead(x2) gets out to try it again since he has nothing to lose. Great.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Israel arrests 32 East Jerusalem residents for serving in PA security forces
[IsraelTimes] Police say suspects violated Oslo-era law banning Paleostinian Authority from operating inside Israel; Top Ramallah official detained for apparently similar reasons over weekend.

Israeli police tossed in the calaboose
... anything you say can and will be used against you, whether you say it or not...
32 East Jerusalem residents overnight Sunday on suspicion that they had illegally enlisted in the Paleostinian Authority’s security forces.

According to a police statement, the suspects were Israeli residents and some were receiving social benefits from the state while also serving in the PA’s armed forces.

The statement said the activities were illegal under the 1994 Gazoo-Jericho agreement, a follow-up treaty to the Oslo Accords.

The arrests came at the end of a covert investigation into the Paleostinian Authority’s operations inside Israel, the statement said.

During searches of the suspects’ homes, police said officers uncovered tens of thousands of shekels in cash, weapons, ammunition, uniforms and various PA security forces documents.

Police said the suspects were engaged in activities that "directly affect the personal safety of Israeli Arabs."

The suspects were taken for questioning and were expected to be brought before a judge for a remand hearing later on Monday.

The arrest raid came a day after police arrested the Paleostinian Authority governor of Jerusalem for the second time in as many months, apparently due to a PA investigation into an East Jerusalem land sale.

Israel, which annexed East Jerusalem in a move not recognized internationally, almost entirely does not allow the PA to operate within Jerusalem.

3 soldiers hurt in suspected car-ramming attack in central West Bank
[IsraelTimes] Paleostinian driver rubbed out after hitting servicemen with his vehicle near the Karmei Tzur settlement.

Three Israeli soldiers were maimed when a Paleostinian man rammed his car into them along a central West Bank highway in a suspected deliberate attack Monday, officials said.

The driver of the vehicle was rubbed out by another soldier.

One of the soldiers sustained moderate wounds to his arms and legs, while the other two were lightly injured, with scrapes and bruises, medics said.

They received medical treatment at the scene and were taken to hospitals in Jerusalem for additional treatment, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.

The three servicemen were performing construction work along the side of the road when they were hit by the car as it traveled down the Route 60 highway near the Karmei Tzur settlement, south of the Gush Etzion Junction, the army said.

According to the military, another member of the patrol shot up the driver, killing him.

The Route 60 highway has been the site of many terror attacks in recent years, as it is regularly frequented by both Israelis and Paleostinians.
The Jerusalem Post adds:
The driver, identified by the Paleostinian Red Islamic Thingy Society as Ramzi Abu Yabes from the Dheisheh Refugee Camp, died at the scene after being shot by an IDF reservist on duty.

According to Paleostinian Maan News Agency, Yabes was on his way to work as a nurse at the Arab Rehabilitation Association in Bethlehem along with his wife, Manal, who was also injured.

Four killed in series of attacks in southern Thailand
[Bangkok Post] Two paramilitary rangers, a deputy village leader and an elderly villager were killed and another ranger wounded during a series of attacks in Thailand's southern border provinces beginning Sunday evening.

Early Sunday evening, gunmen fired at officials guarding a market in Thepha district in Songkhla province. Paramilitary rangers Krisada Ti-iadyor and Jaran Chanthamunee and Adulloh Yeeman, deputy chief of Ban Huay Pling, were killed. Later that evening, Muhama Ma was gunned down at his wife's house in Sai Buri district in Pattani province.

Also on Sunday night, gunmen shot at a pavillion being used by paramilitary rangers near a school in Rangae district of Narathiwat. No one was wounded. About 30 spent pistol and assault rifle cartridges were found nearby.

On Monday, a paramilitary ranger was wounded when a bomb hidden in a traffic cone was detonated as a 12-man security foot patrol was passing, in a village in Yaha district of Narathiwat.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Alleged Syria Chemical Attack: Is the Idlib Deal in Peril?
[An Nahar] A 10-week-old truce deal in northern Syria looked as precarious as ever Monday after an alleged chemical attack, which has already drawn retaliatory raids despite its origins being unclear.

The exact circumstances of the purported attack on three districts of the government-held city of Aleppo Saturday are murky and bitterly disputed.

In little doubt, however, is the strain the incident will put on an already fragile agreement reached in mid-September to fend off a fully-fledged assault on Idlib.

WHAT HAPPENED ON SATURDAY?
Syrian state media accused "terrorists" of carrying out a "toxic gas" attack in Aleppo late Saturday, using a term that it uses to mean both rebels and jihadists.

State news agency SANA said 107 people were hospitalized with breathing difficulties, after what health official Ziad Hajj Taha said it was a "probable" chlorine attack.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights put the number of people affected slightly lower at 94, and said over half had been discharged by the next morning.

The Britannia-based monitor, which says it gathers its information from people inside Syria, said its sources reported "the smell of chlorine".

An AFP news hound saw dozens of civilians carried or helped into a hospital, appearing to be dizzy and breathing with difficulty. Staff gave them oxygen masks.

The regime has been blamed for the most deadly chemical weapon attacks in Syria's seven-year war, but official media has recently accused fighters in Idlib of planning a chemical attack.

East Syria Death Toll Soars after Massive IS Attack

group, a war monitor said Monday, as holdout jihadists kept up a fierce defense of their last Syrian redoubt.

It said a total of more than 200 people have been killed since around 500 IS fighters burst out of the fog shrouding the area in eastern Syria near the border with Iraq to launch their deadly assault on Friday.
