-Lurid Crime Tales-
Russian-born Florida man, 22, is arrested after he threatened to stab 'as many children as possible'
  • [Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] Andrew Ivan Aman, 22, reportedly planned to ’stab as many children as possible’ at the Bellamy Elementary School in Tampa, Florida

  • Aman, with a kitchen knife hidden in a handbag, was also intending on stabbing any adults who got in his way as well

  • He has a history of several mental disorders, apparently decided to target the school because he despises the US and the school’s ’obnoxious pride’ of it

  • His plan was foiled by a chance encounter with his roommate on the way to the school. He was later found with a large kitchen knife hidden in his bag

  • According to his Facebook page, Aman’s is originally from Abakanets, Russia.
    ...which appears to be somewhere in Siberia...
    It’s unclear how long he’s been living in the United States

Which is probably why this thing's family came to Florida.

residents and have been granted anonymity by the court, raised the case, saying that they were tortured and displaced by the al-Qaeda affiliate.

In the court document, Doha Bank is accused of failing to stop the transfers of money to the bully boyz by two Qatari businessmen who are originally Syrian.

"The Khayyat brothers financed and/or assisted in financing al-Nusra Front, including through accounts held by them and/or entities associated with them at Doha Bank," the lawsuit alleges.

Moataz and Ramez al-Khayyat own a construction company called Urbacon, among other businesses in Qatar.

British newspaper The Times has seen documents which state the claimants were subject to "severe physical and psychiatric injuries" by the krazed killers.

"The details contained in the recently received claim are limited and Doha Bank Limited is taking legal advice. However,

it considers the allegations asserted against it are groundless and without merit," said the bank’s chief representative in London, Richard Whiting.

Mexico to deport U.S. citizen suspected of supporting 'violent jihad'
[Jpost] Mexican authorities arrested a U.S. citizen suspected of supporting krazed killer Islamists in an example of Mexico's security cooperation with the United States even as the two neighbors grapple with sharp disagreements over trade and migration.

The unidentified American man sought by Interpol was under investigation for supporting terrorist groups and will be deported to the United States later on Friday, the Mexico's attorney general's office said in a statement.

The man was detained at a migrants colonists office near Mexico's border with Guatemala in the town of Huehuetan with the help of officials from Mexico's National Migration Institute.

The statement highlighted information from U.S. security officials stating that "the foreigner has probably expressed support for violent jihad and radical Islam on digital platforms."

Mexican authorities did not disclose when the arrest was made or any other details of the man's activities in the country.

The case comes as tens of thousands of mostly Central American migrants colonists have been crossing through Mexico in an attempt to reach the United States, with President Donald Trump

pressuring the Mexican government to do more to reduce the flow.
Ynet adds:
Mexican prosecutors have detained and extradited a U.S. citizen suspected of posting on social media platforms in support of radical Islamic and jihadi movements.

The federal prosecutors' office identified the suspect only as Mohammed, without providing his last name, a usual practice under privacy protection rules.

The office said Friday the FBI had issued an alert for the man, who was detained by immigration agents in the southern state of Chiapas near the Guatemala border.

The man was deported Friday on a flight to Washington D.C.

Europe
Germany charges man with spying for Iran
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Prosecutors in Germany say they have indicted an army employee with spying for an Iranian intelligence service.

The federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement that the German-Afghan dual citizen is charged with "a particularly serious case" of treason and of breaching official secrecy laws in 18 cases.

The suspect, identified only as Abdul Hamid S. in line with German privacy rules, had worked as a translator and adviser to the German army for several years. He was arrested Jan. 15 and has been detained since.
Deutsche Welle adds:
German media outlet Spiegel Online reported at the time of the arrest that the man had access to "sensitive information on troops in Afghanistan."

The German government lodged an official complaint with Iran when the 50-year-old was arrested in January. Iran denied the allegations.

The man is expected to go on trial soon.

The Bundeswehr has about 1,300 soldiers deployed in Afghanistan as part of the NATO-led noncombat mission Resolute Support.

According to German intelligence, Iran, Russia, China and Turkey are the main countries engaged in espionage in Germany.

Leader of Kenyan drug organization sentenced to 25 years in U.S.
[Jpost] A leading Kenyan narco, Baktash Akasha, was sentenced to 25 years in prison by a U.S. judge on Friday after he pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy to import heroin and methamphetamine and other crimes.

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero in Manhattan sentenced Akasha, 42, who U.S. prosecutors have described as the leader of the Akasha organization, a major smuggling operation connecting the poppy fields of Afghanistan to Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
an and U.S. cities.

His brother, Ibrahim Akasha, has also pleaded guilty in the case and is scheduled to be sentenced by the same judge in November.

George Goltzer, Akasha's lawyer, said after the sentence that the judge had been "very thoughtful" but declined to comment further.

The case stemmed from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration probe into the Akasha organization, leading to the extradition of the brothers to the United States from Kenya in January 2017 along with Gulam Hussein, a Pak national charged with heading a drug transportation network, and Vijaygiri Goswami, an Indian businessman accused of managing the organization's drug business.

The four defendants were arrested in Mombasa, Kenya, in November 2014 in a U.S.-led sting operation, in which authorities said the Akasha organization provided 99 kilograms (218 lb) of heroin and two kilograms of methamphetamine to DEA informants posing as narcos.

A fifth defendant accused of working with the Akasha organization, Muhammad Asif Hafeez, was arrested in London in August 2017. The United States has requested his extradition.

The Akasha family has been involved in the drug trade for years, according to U.S. diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks. The Satao Project, a private company focused on fighting poaching, has said the Akasha network was also linked to around 30 tons of ivory seizures.

India-Pakistan
Hundreds of protestors clash with police in occupied Kashmir
[DAWN] Hundreds of protesters in Indian-Indian Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir". They have fought four wars with India over it, the score currently 4-0 in New Delhi's favor. After 72 years of this nonsense, India cut the Gordian knot in 2019, removing the area's special status, breaking off Ladakh as a separate state, and allowing people from other areas to settle (or in the case of the Pandits, to resettle) there....
e clashed with police on Friday, even as New Delhi said it would begin restoring phone lines after a 12-day communications blackout.

With the central government fearing protests and unrest, the Moslem-majority region has been under lockdown since the first week of August, when the Indian government stripped the region of its autonomy.

Police fired tear gas and pellet-firing shotguns to disperse residents who tried to march down the main road in the main city of Srinagar after Friday prayers.

Protesters hurled stones and used shop hoardings and tin sheets as improvised shields, as police shot dozens of rounds into the crowd. No injuries were reported.

"We are trying to breach the siege and march to the city centre but police is using force to stop us," one protester told AFP, adding that three people were maimed in Thursday's festivities with coppers and reservists.

Two killed in Pakistan mosque bomb blast
(mosque+blast) ~ (cheese+crackers)
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] At least two people were killed and more than two dozen injured after a blast at a mosque in southwestern Pakistain during Friday prayers, officials said.

Provincial police chief Mohsin Hassan Butt said the earth-shattering kaboom - the latest violence in a string of attacks in restive Balochistan
...the Pak province bordering Kandahar and Uruzgun provinces in Afghanistan and Sistan Baluchistan in Iran. Its native Baloch propulation is being displaced by Pashtuns and Punjabis and they aren't happy about it...
province - was caused by a remotely detonated bomb in the town of Kuchlak.

"Two people including the prayer leader of the mosque have been killed and 25 others were maimed in an IED blast at a mosque," he said.

A second police official, Abdul Razzaq Cheema, confirmed the incident and casualty figures at the mosque, north of bustling provincial capital Quetta.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attack.

Balochistan, Pakistain’s largest and poorest province bordering Afghanistan and Iran, is rife with holy warrior, separatist and sectarian insurgencies, even as incidents of violence have significantly dropped elsewhere in Pakistain.

Militants still retain the ability to carry out attacks, including on major urban centers and tightly-guarded targets, and analysts have long warned that Pakistain is yet to tackle the root causes of extremism.
Khaama Press adds:
An explosion in Quetta city of Pakistain has killed the brother of Mullah Haibatullah, the supreme leader of Taliban
...Arabic for students...
group.

Informed sources have told Rooters that the Hafizullah Ahmadullah, the brother of Mullah Haibatullah was killed in the earth-shattering kaboom along with three others.

A Taliban source has confirmed to Rooters that Ahmadullah was the younger brother of Mullah Haibatullah.

The Taliban group has not formally commented regarding the incident so far.

The explosion took place this afternoon inside a Madrassa in Kuchlak area located in the outskirts of Quetta city.
Update from the Jerusalem Post at 11:00 a.m. EDT:
Taliban leader Haibatullah Akhundzada
...Former deputy to Taliban supremo Mullah Akhtar Mansour, now The Big Man Himself...
was not in the mosque when the bomb went off. The Taliban leader's son was maimed, one of the sources said.

The mosque was known to be visited by members of the Afghan Taliban, the sources said.

"It was a timed device planted under the wooden chair of the prayer leader," said Abdul Razzaq Cheema, chief of police in Quetta, capital of Balochistan province.

One of the sources, who visited the site after the blast, said security at the mosque was always very tight.

Separatist Lions of Islam and Islamist bully boyz are active in Balochistan but many in Pakistan are likely to suspect the Afghan government, which is battling the Taliban over the border in Afghanistan, of the blast.

Iraq
Turkish airstrikes burn orchards, farms of villagers in Kurdistan Region
[Rudaw] Farms and orchards went up in flames today as Ottoman Turkish jets struck apparent Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) positions in the Kurdistan Region’s border area.

"Ottoman Turkish warplanes flew over the areas at 9:35 am and bombarded the villages of Qirnata and Pshtashan, as well as Bermta mountain," Nahro Abdullah, administrator of Sangasar sub-district in the Sulaimani province, told Rudaw.

The jets also hit the villages of Sarda, Bermta, Sargali, Qalatukan and Gali Badran about an hour later. There were no casualties in the towns in the northeast Kurdistan Region near the Ottoman Turkish border, according to Abdullah.

The Ottoman Turkish defence ministry confirmed its Arclight airstrike
...KABOOM!...
s targeted alleged PKK positions in the Kurdistan Region.

"In coordination with Operation Claw, the PKK terrorists’ weapon caches and shelters were targeted through airstrikes in northern Iraq’s Zap, Gara, Qandil and Asos regions," read a statement from the ministry.

The airstrikes are part of The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor...
’s Operation Claw against PKK fighters in the Kurdistan Region’s border area with Turkey. Turkey launched the second phase of the operation on July 12, and it includes operations in the Khakurk area where the villages hit Friday are.

Thursday marked the 35th anniversary of the first conflict between the PKK and Ottoman Turkish Army. Over 40,000 people from both sides and civilians have died since 1984.

The PKK conducted a number of operations inside Turkey on Thursday in memory of the decades-long festivities, claiming the death of 10 Ottoman Turkish soldiers, according to the PKK-affiliated ANF news outlet. Turkey has not confirmed the casualties.

The PKK also confirmed that Turkey struck targets in the Khakurk and Zap areas.

Turkey claims to have "neutralized" hundreds of PKK fighters in its fresh operations since starting Operation Claw in late May, but the PKK denies this.

Turkey uses the term "neutralized" to denote captured, maimed, or killed.

CALL FOR PEACE
Imprisoned PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan said Turkey’s operations will not bring about peace.

"The operation means war. This issue is not one that could be resolved through bloodshed," ANF reported Ocalan as saying.

The PKK founder met with his brother Mehmet Ocalan on Monday. In detention for more than 20 years, Ocalan has rarely been allowed to see lawyers or family members. This is his third meeting with Mehmet since 2016.

Ocalan transmitted his comments on issues in the region through his brother. He called for peace in relation to the Turkey-PKK conflict.

Regarding Ottoman Turkish operation in Kurdistan Region, the PKK leader said that this will not resolve issues, calling for peaceful means.

"We are always there for peace. We will always stand against war," Ocalan reportedly told ANF through his brother. "There must be peace against war."

Oil flows to Iraq’s Haritha power station after pipeline repair
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Oil supply to the al-Haritha electric power station in southern Iraq resumed on Thursday after repairs to a pipeline damaged by a kaboom, the oil ministry said on Friday.

Pumping had stopped on Wednesday, after a kaboom on a dry gas pipeline, the ministry said in a statement.

Oil ministry officials said on Wednesday the earth-shattering kaboom was caused by scorching summer heat.

Most oil exports from Iraq, OPEC’s second-largest producer, come from Basra, in southern Iraq.

2 Israeli teens injured in car-ramming attack in West Bank
More on this story from yesterday.
[IsraelTimes] Driver rubbed out by security forces; maimed treated at the scene next to the Elazar settlement and evacuated to hospitals; doctors fighting to save life of boy, 17

Two Israelis were hit by a car and injured on Friday while standing at a bus stop outside Elazar in the central West Bank, just south of Jerusalem, in what the military said was a terror attack.

A 17-year-old teenager was very seriously maimed and a woman, 19, was moderately hurt, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said.

The two were identified as siblings Nahum and Noam Nevis from Elazar.

They were treated at the scene; then the boy was evacuated to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital and the woman was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, both in Jerusalem.

The director of Hadassah, prof. Yoram Weiss said Nahum was in surgery fighting for his life, with a skull fracture and a brain injury.

Doctors at Shaare Zedek said Noam was conscious, but suffering from injuries to her limbs.

The car rolled over after the attack, and when the suspected attacker tried to emerge from it, he was rubbed out by police at the scene, reports said.

Etzion Regional Council head Shlomo Ne’eman said the incident "looks like a terror attack" despite the fact that the car bore Israeli license plates.

Israel Radio said the car appeared to have been a stolen vehicle.

Elazar is a settlement adjacent to Migdal Oz in the Etzion Bloc, where yeshiva student Dvir Sorek was stabbed to death last week in a suspected terror attack. Also nearby is the Etzion Junction, which has seen multiple fatal terror attacks in recent years.
Ynet has photos and adds:
The attacker, 26-year-old Ala Harimi from the Bethlehem region, was a known felon and drug addict associated with the Islamic Jihad and the Fatah movements. He was jailed in Israel for terror offences between 2014-2015.

He was shot dead by an off-duty policeman who was on the scene.

The drone "dropped flammable material over several points on the border, triggering a huge blaze along the border opposite the al-Abbad military post that faces the Marjeyoun town of Houla," NNA said, adding that the flames have spread into Israel.

The fire also detonated 15 landmines left over from the Israeli occupation era, the agency added.

Air strikes kill 15 civilians in northwest Syria, says monitor
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Air strikes on Friday by Syria’s regime and its Russian ally killed 15 civilians, most of them in a camp for the displaced in Idlib province, a war monitor said.

Four children where among 13 civilians killed in a Russian air strike on a camp for the displaced near the town of Hass in southern Idlib, said the Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Two other children were killed in regime air raids in different parts of the region controlled 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...
(HTS), the monitor said.

The strikes came as regime forces battled HTS jihadists and allied rebels in the region, where fierce fighting Friday claimed the lives of 13 loyalists and 18 jihadists and allied rebels, the Observatory said.

Over the past week, pro-regime fighters have advanced on the southern edges of Idlib province, with the aim of capturing the town of Khan Sheikhoun, which lies on a key highway coveted by the regime.

The road in question runs through Idlib, connecting government-held Damascus with the northern city of Aleppo, which was retaken by regime forces from rebels in December 2016.

HTS has since January controlled most of Idlib province as well as parts of neighboring Hama, Aleppo and Latakia provinces.

last year was supposed to protect the Idlib region’s inhabitants from an all-out regime offensive, but it was never fully implemented.

Regime and Russian air strikes and shelling since late April have killed more than 820 civilians, according to the Observatory.
