Putin warns that militants are flowing into Libya from Syria's Idlib
[AlAhram] Russian President Vladimir Putin
...President-for-Life of Russia. He gets along well with other presidents for life. He is credited with bringing political stability and re-establishing something like the rule of law, which occasionally results in somebody dropping dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substance. Under Putin, a new group of business magnates controlling significant swathes of Russia's economy has emerged, all of whom have close personal ties to him. The old bunch, without close personal ties to Putin, are in jail or in exile or dead from poisoning by polonium or other interesting substances...
said on Thursday he was worried that holy warriors were flowing into Libya from Syria's Idlib province and warned that the Libyan situation was deteriorating.

Putin, who was speaking at a news conference in Rome after holding talks with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, said Moscow wanted Libya's warring sides to agree a ceasefire, to hold talks, and to enter into a proper political process to sort out the country's problems.
Have some respect for their traditional process, dude. Eventually all contenders but one will lie dead, at which point serious negotiations can begin.

Tunis bombings death toll rises to two
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The corpse count from twin suicide kabooms that rocked the Tunisian capital last week has risen to two after a civilian died of his injuries, the interior ministry said on Thursday.

A policeman was killed on the spot when one of the bombers went kaboom! as a police vehicle passed on the capital’s main through fare.

Among the seven other people maimed in that attack and a second on a cop shoppe in the outskirts of Tunis, six have been discharged from hospital while a police officer has been kept in for observation, ministry front man Sofiene Zaag told AFP.

The June 27 bombings brought back memories of deadly 2015 attacks on foreign holidaymakers and security personnel that dealt a heavy blow to the country’s vital tourism industry.

The suspected criminal mastermind was killed when he went kaboom! during a police manhunt outside the capital, the ministry said on Wednesday.

Dozens of migrants feared dead after boat capsizes near Tunisia
[DW] More than 80 refugees were feared dead after a boat capsized in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Tunisia, the Tunisian coasties said Thursday.

The International Organization for Migration said that the vessel had foundered near the city of Zarzis, and that 82 of the migrants colonists on board were missing. Four were rescued from the water, one of whom had died overnight.

The migrants colonists were fleeing Libya, where an Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
hit a migrant detention center a day earlier, killing 44 people and wounding 130.

Ongoing violence in Libya, a gathering point for many refugees from throughout Africa, has prompted many people to attempt the crossing to Italia despite the risks.

There is a weak, UN-recognized government in the Libyan capital, Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
, vying for power against militias allied with warlord Khalifa Haftar
...Self-proclaimed Field Marshal, served in the Libyan army under Muammar Qadaffy, and took part in the coup that brought Qadaffy to power in 1969. He became a prisoner of war in Chad in 1987. While held prisoner, he and his fellow officers formed a group hoping to overthrow Qadaffy, so it's kind of hard to describe him as a Qadaffy holdover. He was released around 1990 in a deal with the United States government and spent nearly two decades in the United States, gaining US citizenship. In 1993, while living in the United States, he was convicted in absentia of crimes against the Jamahiriya and sentenced to death. Haftar held a senior position in the anti-Qadaffy forces in the 2011 Libyan Civil War. In 2014 he was commander of the Libyan Army when the General National Congress (GNC) refused to give up power in accordance with its term of office. Haftar launched a campaign against the GNC and its Islamic fundamentalist allies. His campaign allowed elections to take place to replace the GNC, but then developed into a civil war. Guess you can't win them all...
The Tripoli government has blamed Haftar's troops for Wednesday's airstrike. The UN partly blamed the tragedy on the Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an Union's policy of supporting Libyan militias to prevent refugees from attempting the dangerous Mediterranean crossing.
Al Ahram adds:
The Red Islamic Thingy and the navy told AFP that three Malians and an Ivorian were rescued off Zarzis in southern Tunisia on Wednesday by the coasties who had been alerted by local fishermen.

The Ivorian, however, died in hospital and one of the Malians has also been hospitalised in intensive care.

Those rescued had told Tunisian officials that 86 people were on board their inflatable boat when it left from the Libyan town of Zuwara, west of Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...

Arab Coalition intercepts Houthi drone targeting Saudi Arabia’s Jazan airport
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] The Arab Coalition said its forces were able to intercept and destroy a bomb-laden drone launched by the 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...
militia towards the airport in the southern Saudi city of Jazan.

The traffic at Jazan airport was normal after it being targeted by the Houthi projectile.

In a statement, the Arab Coalition front man, Col. Turki al-Maliki, said the drone was launched by the Houthi militia from Sanaa.

"The Houthi gunnies continue to launch drones to carry out hostile and terrorist acts by targeting civilians and public facilities," al-Maliki said.

Britain
Armed assailant threatens to behead Jewish man in London
[IsraelNationalNews] An Orthodox Jewish man was threatened with beheading after he was confronted by a knife-wielding man in London Monday.

The incident occurred in the Whitechapel section of London Monday morning, when a 34-year-old man accosted an Orthodox Jewish man in his 40s who was walking down the street to his place of work.

The suspect shouted anti-Semitic epithets at the Jewish man, including calling him a "f***ing Jew".

When the suspect drew a knife, the Jewish man began to run, with the suspect chasing behind him, shouting "I’m going to kill you, I’m going to chop your head off."

The Jewish man "saw that he took out a knife and he started running away, he was just running for his life," Barnet Councillor Nizza Fluss told the Evening Standard.

According to a statement tweeted by the Tower Hamlets Police Department, the suspect was later arrested and the knife he used to threaten his would-be victim was recovered.

"At around 10am on 1 July a Jewish man was threatened by another man in Dunbridge St, E1. The suspect was carrying a knife. Police responded + arrested a 34yo man nearby for a racially aggravated public order offence. A knife was recovered from the suspect who remains in jug."

On Sunday, another anti-Semitic incident was reported in London, this time outside of an Orthodox Jewish school in the Hackney district.

Police say a man approached a group of young boys and their mothers outside of a school affiliated with the Satmar Hasidic movement, shouting "I will kill all you Jews."

The suspect attacked one person, the local Shomrim neighborhood watch group reported, before police arrived and arrested the assailant.
Pamela Geller points out:
Half the population of Whitechapel is Moslem ‐ sounds like another no-go zones.

Europe
Wave of Shootings in Sweden as Gangs Settle Scores
Most of the shooters and victims are unemployed young men with immigrant backgrounds, under 30 years of age, living in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and often without a high school diploma.
[AnNahar] Honour, debts, and prestige are serving as the pretext for an increasing number of deadly shootings that challenge the ideals of equality and social harmony on which modern Sweden was built.

"You strengthen your own gang by eliminating an external threat and you gain prestige," Eddy Paver, a reformed former member of a biker gang, told AFP.
Now that the conquest is pretty much complete, the question of who gets all the spoils must be resolved in the traditional manner.
Paver was long willing to pay the ultimate price in order to "belong" to a criminal gang which required absolute loyalty from its members.

A nominal, indigenous organized crime element can be quite useful, the 24/7 bleedin' heart media circus and bureaucratic buggery tying your hands. There's no stopping some trades anyway, why not make it work for you and have strict boundaries for it ? Also keep the numbers to a minimum, keep rotating the primacy to gangs over time (also encouraging new.. talent), so as to avoid a monopoly and excessive capital accumulation by any one player.

#12  Not to be critical, as opposed to unhinged political lunatics, we really enjoy dog and wildlife fotos, paperboys, scenic vistas, trains and planes, vintage autos, small boats, the occasional German beer garden wench. That sort of thing. Again, not to be critical.

The Grand Turk
Three French women arrested in Turkey for ISIS links
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Three French citizens suspected of belonging to ISIS bully boy group were detained along with nine children as they tried to enter The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
from Syria, Ottoman Turkish media reported on Thursday.

Ottoman Turkish authorities stopped the three women, sought by Interpol and identified by their initials JC, CA and MD, in the border province of Kilis, according to state news agency Anadolu.

A security source told AFP that JC referred to Jennifer Clain, niece of the brothers Fabien and Jean-Michel Clain,
...Fabien Clain was also known before he kissed a missile as Brother Omar and Abu Adam al-Farans. The Reunion Island native was estimated to be one of the top ranked French jihadis in ISIS — among those not yet killed — along with his brother, Jean-Michel Clain, wounded in the same attack and left to suffer until a mortar caught up with him. After recruiting jihadis to fight the Americans in Iraq for the Artigat cell in Tolouse, they emigrated to ISIS in 2015. The Clain boys are accused of planning to send child soldiers to Europe disguised as asylum seekers, among other clever ideas...
who grabbed credit on behalf of ISIS for the attacks that hit the Bataclan nightclub and other Gay Paree locations in November 2015.

She is also married to Kevin Gonot, a French citizen sentenced to death in Iraq last May for his role in ISIS.

Anadolu said 12 people had been arrested and were being transferred to immigration authorities awaiting their expulsion from Turkey.

In the first years after the Syrian conflict began in 2011, Turkey was the main point of entry for imported muscle seeking to join bully boy groups.

Accused of turning a blind eye to the problem, Ankara later tightened border controls and began widespread arrests and extraditions, especially after a spate of devastating bully boy attacks in Turkey.

#1  Now we can use the passport game to advantage. If passport makes you a citizen, you need a passport to claim citizenship. Didn't lefties make a big deal about how many Americans (rednecks who don't want to see the world) don't have passports. Go get, go get...

India-Pakistan
CTD arrests 5 suspected terrorists in Rajanpur after foiled bid to bomb train
[DAWN] Five suspected Death Eaters were arrested by the Punjab
1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots....

Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) after a failed bid to carry out a kaboom on a train in Rajanpur on Thursday.

A bomb disposal squad (BDS) had earlier in the day expertly defused explosives affixed to railway tracks.

According to BDS official Ghulam Abbas, "the bomb weighed 5kg and was attached to the railway tracks along with a remote-controlled device."

The target appeared to be the 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...
-bound Khushal Khan Khattak Express, which had left from Beautiful Downtown Peshawar
...capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistan's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire.
and was due to pass by in a few hours. It was temporarily halted at the DG Khan station after police sealed off the area and began a search operation.

Later in the evening, the CTD notified the arrest of five suspected Death Eaters from Rajanpur's Giamal area.

The CTD said that additional explosives and some ammunition was recovered from the suspects' possession.

They said that a case had been registered against the suspects on charges of terrorism. Further investigation is underway, and "important disclosures are expected".

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Islamic State Claims June Attack That Killed Four In Lebanon's Tripoli
[Jpost] 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....
grabbed credit on Thursday for an attack that killed two coppers and two soldiers on patrol in patrol in Leb's Tripoli
...a confusing city, one end of which is located in Lebanon and the other end of which is the capital of Libya. Its chief distinction is being mentioned in the Marine Hymn...
last month, the group’s al-Nabaa newspaper said.

Islamic State said in its weekly newspaper that the "attacker is of the caliphate soldiers." It provided no evidence to support its claim. The attack occurred on June 3.

Syrian regime strikes kill four civilians, hit hospitals
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Regime air strikes Thursday on an anti-government bastion in northwest Syria killed four civilians, two of them children, and hit three hospitals already damaged in previous raids, a monitor said.

A fifth person, another child, was killed in a separate air raid by regime ally Russia also in the Idlib region, the Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights war monitor said.

The Idlib region is supposed to be protected from a massive regime assault by a September buffer zone deal, but the area housing three million people has come under increased regime and Russian fire since April.

The region is administered by Syria’s former al-Qaeda affiliate Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, formerly al-Nusra, before that it was called something else
...al-Qaeda's Syrian affiliate, from which sprang the Islamic State...
, but other jihadist and opposition factions are also present.

"Regime warplanes again targeted three hospitals in the south of Idlib," which had been hit and damaged in raids in previous weeks, the Observatory said.

There were no casualties in these raids on the village of Hass and the town of Kafr Nabl, it added.

Obeida Dandouch, who heads a rescue group in the area, said the strike in Kafr Nabl damaged a large part of what was still standing at the local hospital.

In May, Amnesia Amnesty International accused the Syrian regime and Russia of launching "deliberate and systematic" assaults on hospitals in the northwest.

At least 25 hospitals and clinics have been destroyed or damaged by air strikes and shelling since the end of April, according to the United Nations
...a lucrative dumping ground for the relatives of dictators and party hacks...
Five rescuers were also killed in the last two weeks of June in air strike on the Idlib region.

Thursday’s strikes killed four civilians, two of them children, in Kafr Nabl, Hass and the town of Khan Sheikhun in Idlib region, the Observatory said.
