[KhaamaPress] Taliban fighters in a viral video claimed that they have seized up to six million dollars and about 15 bricks of gold in Panjshir province in a residence of Amrullah Saleh, the former vice-president.
Amrullah Saleh and the resistance front have not commented on the issue yet.
Resistance movements cost money. Clever of VP Saleh to have arranged for it without choosing the Talib methods of kidnapping, extortion, and forcing the peasants to grow opium.
Did these women have beards and Adam’s apples under their burkas?
[KhaamaPress] Tens of women erupted into the streets of eastern Jalalabad city of Nangarhar The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country... province to support the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and condemn the previous all-women protest in Kabul and other provinces.
They reacted against those who protested against the Taliban ...Arabic for students... and called them to be doing so for their self-interests.
This is the second protest of the same kind in the past three days. The first demonstration was arranged by university students and lecturers in Kabul on Saturday, September 11.
Women in Jalalabad city asked IEA to be given their rights to education and work under Islamic principles.
Provincial officials of the IEA assured women to be given their rights and all women can study and work under Islamic principles.
Not only inside the country but the international community also reacted to the all-men caretaker cabinet of the Taliban in which the ministry of women affairs is excluded from the government.
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News] The Taliban ...mindless ferocity in a turban... is carrying out reprisal attacks against former soldiers and government workers, the UN has been told - as video emerged showing Islamist fighters forcing young men into car boots in the capital Kabul.
So in addition to the round-up in Panjshir. And probably elsewhere as well.
Michelle Bachelet, speaking at the Human Rights Council on Monday, said she has seen 'credible reports' that Taliban fighters are searching house-to-house to track down anyone who helped the former government or US.
'Officials who worked for previous administrations and their family members [are] being arbitrarily detained,' she said. 'In some cases, the officials were released, and in others, they were found dead.'
As she spoke, footage appeared online showing men - some of whom appear to be Taliban fighters - forcing at least four men into car boots.
According to Iran ...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... International correspondent Tajuden Soroush, the footage was filmed in the Salang Wat district of Kabul and the men are ethnic Panjshiris.
The Panjshiris have a long history of fighting against the Taliban, and are one of several Tajik minorities who are frequently persecuted by the group.
It is unclear exactly why these young men were being detained, but it comes just after the Taliban claimed to have conquered the Panjshir Valley - where an alliance of warlords was holding out against Islamist rule.
UN staffers have also reported increasing attacks and threats, she added, without providing specifics.
Ms Bachelet also highlighted 'deeply troubling information' about Taliban raids on offices of some advocacy groups.
'In contradiction to assurances that the Taliban would uphold women's rights, over the past three weeks women have instead been progressively excluded from the public sphere,' she told the 47-member council as it opened its autumn session.
She said girls aged over 12 have been barred from attending school in some places in Afghanistan, and Women's Affairs departments had been at times dismantled.
The Taliban has publicly insisted that its rule of Afghanistan will be more moderate than it was during the 1990s, when its brutal interpretation of Sharia law saw women stripped of their rights along with public floggings and executions.

[LIBYAREVIEW] On Sunday, the Libyan Public Prosecutor, al-Sadiq al-Sour, announced the arrest of a person, nicknamed "Hajj Hakim" involved in the kidnapping and torture of Egyptian workers in Ajaylat city.In a statement, the Public Prosecutor’s Office explained that the arrested man confessed to kidnapping Egyptian workers, torturing them, and sending their pictures to their families for ransom.
It added that the investigations proved the suspect’s involvement in other criminal practices linked to human trafficking across several countries.
Notably, Libya’s Prosecutor General and his Egyptian counterpart, Hamada el Sawi, in July signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote cooperation between the two countries’ prosecutions.
The MoU is concerned with strengthening cooperation to combat all forms of crimes, especially terrorism, transnational organized crimes, corruption, human trafficking and cybercrimes.
In addition, Libya, in partnership with the European Union ...the successor to the Holy Roman Empire, only without the Hapsburgs and the nifty uniforms and the dancing... (EU) and the United Nations ...boodling on the grand scale... (UN), announced the launch of a project entitled "dismantling human trafficking and migrant criminal networks in North Africa".
Funded by the EU, through the EU Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF), and implemented by United Nations Office on Drugs and Crimes (UNODC), it aims at strengthening the capacities of Libyan authorities to prevent all forms of organized crime, including human trafficking and migrant smuggling.
Libya has been plagued by corruption and turmoil since a NATO ...the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. A collection of multinational and multilingual and multicultural armed forces, all of differing capabilities, working toward a common goal by pulling in different directions... -backed uprising toppled and killed longtime leader Muammar Qadaffy ...who single-handedly turned a moderately prosperous kingdom into a dictator's fantasyland and was then murdered by his indignant subjects 42 years later... in 2011.
It was split into two administrations. One in the West, including 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... , is ruled by the Government of National Accord (GNA), while the East-based government is supported by powerful military commander of the Libyan National Army (LNA), Khalifa Hafter.
Oil-rich Libya has emerged as a major conduit for people from Africa and the Middle East fleeing wars and poverty and hoping to reach Europe.
Human rights groups say that migrants colonists in Libya face widespread violence and abuse.

[EN.ALGHADEERTV.NET] Nearly 70 students who were kidnapped from their school in northern Nigeria have regained their freedom after two weeks in captivity, Zamfara state Gov. Bello Matawalle said Monday.The students from the Government Day Secondary School were rescued with the help of some of the button men who had repented, he said. They were reunited with their families late Sunday.
Heavily gunnies had descended on the school on Sept. 1, the latest attack in a wave of school kidnappings in northern Nigeria that prompted the government to shut down all primary and secondary schools in Zamfara state.
Police have said that 73 students were kidnapped and that five were rescued a day later.
According to UNICEF, Nigeria has seen at least 10 abductions over the past year in which 1,436 students have been taken. About 200 students are still being held and 16 children have died in the attacks. School kidnappings have taken place in nine different states, and targets have included everyone from preschoolers to university students.
Authorities have blamed the abductions on bandidos who are believed to be motivated by the ransoms paid for the children’s release. However, Caliphornia hasn't yet slid into the ocean, no matter how hard it's tried... some students held by the bandidos have said they also have been threatened to not return to school when they are freed.
That has raised fears that they may be linked in some way to the Islamic Death Eater group Boko Haram ...not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality... , whose name in the Hausa language translates as "Western education is forbidden."

[NATION.PK] Joint military drills between Pakistain, The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor... and Azerbaijan started in Baku on Sunday, the first such drills between the three countries.
The "Three Brothers - 2021" exercises kicked off with a solemn opening ceremony. While national anthems of the participating countries were played and their flags raised, a minute of silence was also observed to commemorate their "deaders".
Speaking at the ceremony, Lt. Gen. Hikmat Mirzayev, Azerbaijan's special forces commander, said he was pleased to see the representatives of Ottoman Turkish and Pak special forces in his country.
"Azerbaijan, Turkey and Pakistain have entered the history of mankind as close friends and brothers. At the heart of these relations is the close ties between our peoples. Evidence of this can be seen in the solidarity and support of Turkey and Pakistain to Azerbaijan from the first day of the 44-day counter-offensive operations launched by Azerbaijan against the Armenian armed forces on Sept. 27, 2020," Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry quoted him as saying.
He was referring to the second Karabakh war, which began last September and ended six weeks later following a Russia-brokered truce in November.
Azerbaijan liberated several cities and some 300 settlements and villages after a nearly three-decade occupation.
"Today, cooperation between our countries in all areas is at the highest level. Important measures are being taken to further strengthen and develop our relations to ensure the region's and peoples' security," Mirzayev said.
He hoped that the exercises, which will be held until Sept. 20, will provide an extensive exchange of experience and views between servicemen of the three countries and will "greatly contribute" to further improvement of the professional training.
The heads of Ottoman Turkish and Pak delegations, Lt. Col. Kursat Konuk and Lt. Col. Aamir Shahzad, said the existing bond of friendship between the nations and armies "would stand the test of time" in a rapidly changing global environment.

[JPost] The incident followed just hours after terrorist attempted to stab soldiers at Gush Etzion junction.
Two Israeli men were moderately injured in a stabbing attack at a store next to the Jerusalem Central Bus Station in Jerusalem on Monday. Two female Border Police patrol officers at the scene shot and wounded the terrorist.
The attacker was identified as 17-year-old Basil Shawamra from the village of Deir al-Asal al-Fauqa near Hebron in the southern West Bank. Two additional suspects were detained.
“We will continue to act resolutely against any attempt to harm Israeli citizens,” said Defense Minister Benny Gantz after the attack. “The vigilance and rapid and professional action of the forces on the ground prevented a much more severe result.”
The victims were evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center where doctors said they were conscious and stable.
The attacker underwent surgery at Shaare Zedek after resuscitation attempts.
IDF soldiers thwarted a terrorist attack earlier in the day at the Gush Etzion junction.
The attack came just hours after an attempted stabbing attack at the Gush Etzion junction, in which IDF soldiers stopped a terrorist who attempted to stab them. That attacker was also taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center with gunshot wounds to his hand. No soldiers were injured in the attack.
[IsraelTimes] Israel Prisons Service Commissioner Katy Perry tells Knesset panel she’s established a team to inspect the engineering and design of every prison in the country Katy Perry? Miley Cyrus unavailable?
Perry said prison officials have worked to "eradicate crime within prisons, collect intelligence information, and thwart" prison breaks. Perry, who was sworn in as commissioner of the Israel Prisons Service in January, said there are approximately 14,000 prisoners — around 4,000 security prisoners and approximately 10,000 criminals — in 30 facilities across the country.
The prisons chief addressed the hearing a week after the escape of six Paleostinian security prisoners from the high-security Gilboa Prison, one of the worst such incidents in Israel’s history. The escape was facilitated in part by a series of blunders by the Prisons Service. Four of the prisoners were captured by police over the weekend, but two remained on the lam as of Monday afternoon.
Perry said that since the prison break occurred, she has taken a series of steps in reaction to the incident, including boosting security at prisons and dispersing security prisoners linked to the Islamic Jihad ...created after many members of the Egyptian Moslem Brotherhood decided the organization was becoming too moderate. Operations were conducted out of Egypt until 1981 when the group was exiled after the assassination of President Anwar Sadat. They worked out of Gaza until they were exiled to Lebanon in 1987, where they clove tightly to Hezbollah. In 1989 they moved to Damascus, where they remain a subsidiary of Hezbollah... In addition, she said, she established a team together with the military and other officials, "which is going cell by cell and wing by wing" in each prison in order "to check the engineering of the buildings, to see the blueprints and to check what is underground" beneath the facilities.
Security services foil large terror attack in #Israel today, @MaarivOnline reports; gag order issued to prevent publication of any details for now (this suggests that investigation is still ongoing and possibly hunt for terrorists or associates)

[EN.ALGHADEERTV.NET] The Syrian army has entered the town of al-Yadudah in the southern province of Dara’a after 10 years following an agreement with local tribal elders brokered by Russia, reports said on Monday.
Syrian military officials were accompanied by Russian forces as they made their way to the southern Syrian town previously held by foreign-backed mercenaries, al-Mayadeen television reported.
On Sunday, following the mediation of Russia, an agreement was reached with tribal elders in the town, which required the gangs in al-Yadudah to surrender their weapons to the Syrian army and hand over control of the town to the government in Damascus in return for amnesty.
After the Syrian army entered the town on Monday, a center was set up for the formal handover of weapons and control of the town, under the supervision of Russian military officials and tribal elders.
The troops have set up checkpoints for the faceless myrmidons still refusing to implement the Russian-negotiated agreement that went into effect last week, ending weeks of intense fighting.
It comes days after people started arriving in the town of Dara’a al-Balad as authorities removed roadblocks and opened roads while bomb squads combed areas previously held by Takfiri ...an adherent of takfir wal hijra, an offshoot of Salafism that regards everybody who doesn't agree with them as apostates who must be killed... terrorists.
The strategic area in the city of Dara’a came under full control of the Syrian army last week.
According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the number of internally displaced people (IDPs) in Dara’a province as a result of foreign-backed militancy stands at 38,600, including 15,000 women and over 20,400 children.
The Syrian army units also raised the national flag in the al-Arbaeen neighborhood, within the framework of a truce agreement brokered by the Russians last month.
The government’s full control over Dara’a is significant because it borders the occupied Golan Heights, where the Israeli regime has armed faceless myrmidons fighting against the Syrian government since 2011.
The territory’s return to government control could cut the much-reported collaboration between Israel and murderous Moslems and deal a blow to Tel Aviv’s plans to annex the Golan Heights.
