Local residents said the house was rented by the two suspects two months ago.

The statement said that a large number of weapons was seized during the operation.

Sources said that at least five members of the Afghan forces were killed and maimed in the operation.
Khaama Press adds:
The National Directorate of Security said in a statement that the NDS special Forces conducted the raid in the 17th district of the city after receiving information from 3 dangerous members of the group, whom the NDS forces arrested a day earlier.

The statement further added that the NDS Special Forces killed Mohammad Haneef, one of the planners and organizers of the terror group and a Pak jacket wallah.

Furthermore, the National Directorate of Security said a Pak woman who was living in the compound with her 4 children also sustained injuries during the operation.

Six Nigerian soldiers dead in Islamist Militants' attacks
[AlAhram] Islamist Militants killed six soldiers and a civilian militia leader as they hit three towns in Nigeria's conflict-torn northeastern state of Borno, security sources and residents told AFP on Friday.

Several troops and forces of Evil are also missing, they said.

Suspected fighters from 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....
West Africa Province (ISWAP), affiliated to the so-called Islamic State group, attacked the town of Gubio around 1630 GMT on Thursday, unleashing a battle with security forces.

"The bodies of six soldiers and the (local) head of the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) were recovered outside the town with bullet wounds," a security source said.

The Islamist Militants stormed into Gubio aboard a dozen pickup trucks mounted with machine guns, according to local resident Idrissa Kaka, who confirmed the corpse count.

They also made off with three military vehicles and a van belonging to the CJTF.

"The whereabouts of the remaining soldiers is unknown. Our fear is that they were captured along with the vehicles," he said.

The Islamist Militants then attacked the towns of Gajiganna and Gajiram, where they torched buildings and sent soldiers fleeing, residents said.

Gubio, which lies 80 kilometres (50 miles) north of Borno state capital Maiduguri, has been repeatedly targeted by the jihadists.

Last month six people including three soldiers were killed when ISWAP attacked military base in the town.

Since July last year ISWAP has intensified attacks on military targets, raiding bases and ambushing military patrols.

Boko Haram

-- who are notorious for killing civilians -- have also carried out attacks on the military.

The decade-long Islamist Militants insurgency in northeast Nigeria
... a particularly crimson stretch of Islam's bloody border...
has claimed more than 35,000 lives and left more than two million people displaced from their homes.

Arabia
UAE says 6 troops killed in 'military collision'
[DAWN] The United Arab Emirates (UAE), a key member of the Saudi-led coalition fighting 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...
rebels in Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...
, said on Friday six of its soldiers were killed in a "collision of military vehicles" while on duty.

It did not specify if the men died in Yemen, where tens of thousands of people ‐ most of them civilians ‐ have been killed in the country's years-old conflict between pro-government forces and the Iran-aligned rebels.

The armed forces announced "the martyrdom of six of its valiant soldiers as a result of a collision of military vehicles while carrying out their national duty in an operations field", state news agency WAM reported.

Roadside bomb kills at least 4, injures 13 in Diyarbakir province: official
[Rudaw] An improvised bomb (IED) detonated by a roadside killed at least four villagers and injured 13 others in the Kurdish province of Diyarbakir (Amed) in southeast The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
on Thursday night, according to the provincial governor’s office.

A statement from the governor’s office blamed the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) for the incident.

"A vehicle carrying our villagers from the rural district of Kulp in our province - who had gone out to collect wood - was subjected to a hand-made bomb by the separatist terrorist organization [of the PKK] at 18:00 [Thursday], resulting in the martyrdom of four villagers and the heavy injury of 13 others," read a statement from the office of Diyarbakir governor Hasan Basri.

The PKK has yet to claim or deny responsibility for the earth-shattering kaboom.

However,
nothing needs reforming like other people's bad habits...
PKK-affiliated media outlet ANF put the blast’s corpse count at seven.

Ottoman Turkish President His Enormity, Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan the First
...Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him. It's a sin, a shame, and a felony to insult the president of Turkey. In Anatolia did Recep Bey a stately Presidential Palace decree, that has 1100 rooms. That's 968 more than in the White House, 400 more than in Versailles, and 325 more than Buckingham Palace, so you know who's really more important...
called the governor, who briefed the President about the earth-shattering kaboom.

Blaming the PKK, Erdogan said that "all capacity" of the security forces will be used to catch the perpetrators, according to a statement from the Presidency .

Ottoman Turkish forces are currently conducting two wide-scale operations against the PKK: stage three of Operation Claw in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, and Operation Kiran within its borders.

The PKK has said repeatedly that it does not target civilians, but Ottoman Turkish security forces and their accomplices.

The incident comes amid a recent clampdown against the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), which Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) claims is the political wing of the PKK.

Left in limbo, they represent the complex legacy of the IS sweep across Iraq, which is keen to move on two years after ousting the jihadists but apparently unable to reconcile its traumatised communities.

US jets smashed an island ISIS was using 'like a hotel' and troops found rockets and bombs stashed in caves
[BusinessInsider] On September 10, US Air Force F-15 Strike Eagles and F-35 Lightning II aircraft dropped 80,000 pounds of ordnance on 37 targets on Qanus Island in Iraq's Tigris River. Approximately 25 Islamic State

(ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
) fighters were killed in the operation, according to Sabah al-Numaan, a spokesperson for the Iraqi Counter Terrorism Service (CTS).

Al-Numaan told Insider that US aircraft hit 37 targets, "trenches and caves," on the island ISIS fighters were using as a stopoff on the way into Iraq from Syria. The island, which has thick vegetation, was "like a hotel for ISIS," Lt. Gen. Abdul Wahab al-Saadi, commander of the Iraqi CTS told Insider, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS.

Lt. Gen. al-Saadi's team made a sweep of the island after it was partially destroyed by US strikes. He told Insider that his team found rocket-propelled grenade launchers (RPGs), several rockets, and improvised bombs (IEDs). A spokesperson for Operation Inherent Resolve confirmed on September 10 that a weapons cache was found on the island after the air strike.

Lt. Gen. al-Saadi said that US drones had provided surveillance data for the secret operation, and that there were no civilians on the island.

One of the reasons the island was an ideal hideout for ISIS gunnies on the move was the absence of Iraqi troops nearby, Lt. Gen. al-Saadi said. According to a Pentagon Inspector General report on Operation Inherent Resolve, the US operation in Iraq, Iraqi security forces on the whole don't have the infrastructure to consistently counter ISIS.

ISIS has ramped up its presence in Iraq and Syria since the US drew down troop presence in Syria and decreased its diplomatic presence in Iraq. Although President Donald Trump
...The man who was so stupid he beat fourteen professional politicians, a former tech CEO, and a brain surgeon for the Republican nomination in 2016, then beat The Smartest Woman in the World in the general election...
proclaimed that ISIS's caliphate was completely defeated at a July cabinet meeting, there are still an estimated 14,000 to 18,000 ISIS fighters. Combatants in Iraq and Syria continue to carry out suicide kabooms, crop burnings, and liquidations.

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
4,000 Gazans assemble along border fence for weekly protest riot
It’s Friday, when the desperate and the devout earn their pittance from Hamas the easy way.
[IsraelTimes] Several thousand Paleostinians protested along the Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
border Friday, hours after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that war with terror groups in the Gaza Strip could break out "at any moment."

Some 4,000 Paleostinians took part in demonstrations with several hundred rioting and throwing rocks and bombs at IDF troops who responded with tear gas and occasional live fire.

The Hamas, the well-beloved offspring of the Moslem Brotherhood,-run Gaza health ministry said 30 people had been maimed, including 15 from live fire. The IDF had no immediate comment.
According to the Jerusalem Post, it was 5,000 protesting, with Palestinian sources claiming 10 injured, six from gunshot wounds.

New round of clashes breakout between Kurdish forces and Turkish-backed militants in northern Aleppo
[ALMASDARNEWS] For the third night in a row, a fierce firefight has broken out in the Aleppo countryside between the Kurdish-led forces and Ottoman Turkish-backed krazed killers.

According to tonight’s report, the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Ottoman Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army
... the more palatable version of the Syrian insurgency, heavily influenced by the Moslem Brüderbund...
(TFSA) began clashing at the southern axis of Azaz city, prompting both sides to exchange heavy gunfire.

No casualties have been reported by either side.

Since the implementation of a safe zone in northern Syria, the festivities between the Ottoman Turkish-backed Death Eaters and Kurdish-led forces have mostly taken place in the Aleppo Governorate, where the U.S. has a small presence in the northeastern region.

The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...Qatar's satrapy in Asia Minor...
views the YPG as a terrorist group because of their affiliation with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which was involved in a violent war with the Ottoman Turkish Armed Forces for several years.

The Ottoman Turkish authorities have rejected any type of agreement with the YPG and they have pressured the United States to expel them from the border region.
