Afghanistan
Telecommunications Attacked In North
[ToloNews] Sources say turbans attacked telecommunication centers in Baghlan, causing damage of more than several million dollars.

On Sunday, sources say that infrastructure in Baghlan province used by multiple telecommunication companies was targeted by Death Eaters. The attacks resulted in damage amounting to more than several million dollars and affected communications in Baghlan, Kunduz and Balkh provinces.

Insurgents shutdown the network by starting fires at the two Baghlan centers within the last 24 hours, sources say.

The estimated combined cost is over several million US dollars.

No group has grabbed credit, but the Taliban
...mindless ferocity in a turban...
in a statement in August threatened to target employees and installations of telecommunication companies for aiding government and foreign forces with "intelligence activities." Installations, offices and vehicles of the company will be treated as military targets, the Taliban said.

Daesh claims attacks on soldiers in northeast Nigeria
[PRESSTV] Militants in northeastern Nigeria killed at least nine people in an attack on Sunday, sources told Rooters on Monday.

It was the latest in a series of attacks in the northeast that has coincided with the Nigerian military's implementation of a new strategy of withdrawing to "super camps" that the military says can be more easily defended against krazed killer krazed killers.

Some security experts have expressed concerns that the areas vacated under the strategy announced by President Muhammadu Buhari in July are being filled by krazed killers, leaving civilians vulnerable in a region that is grappling with a decade-long insurgency that has killed more than 30,000 people.

One military source and one resident in the town of Gubio, in Borno state, said the attack on the area began around 4:30 p.m. (1530 GMT) and lasted until 9 p.m.

On Monday, ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
grabbed credit for the attack via its Amaq news agency, saying it killed and maimed 18 Nigerian soldiers and took vehicles and weapons before fleeing.

The group said the attack was carried out on Nigerian army barracks in Gubio where Death Eaters clashed with soldiers before the gunnies withdrew from the town.

ISIS widows in deadly clash with SDF guards at Syria’s notorious al-Hol camp
[Rudaw] A widow of an Islamic State

(ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
) fighter died and several others were maimed in an armed clash with women security guards from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) at al-Hol camp in the northeast Syrian province of Hasaka on Monday. About 50 others were detained as a result of the clash, according to local sources.

"A group of women of the Organization [ISIS] inside the camp who were secretly working as Hisba, tried to whip a woman," reported the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) on Monday.

Security guard (Asayesh) intervention in the attempted whipping led to an armed clash between both sides, SOHR added, in which the ISIS-affiliated women used light weaponry against the camp guards.

Hisba refers to ISIS’ inquisitors religious police, who took it as their duty to punish violators of their interpretation of Sharia (Islamic) law during ISIS reign in Syria between 2014 and 2019.

"Two women from the Organization’s families attempted to assassinate an Iraqi refugee, by stabbing him in the abdomen ... which seriously injured him," the UK-based watchdog also said of Monday’s violence.

SDF-affiliated Hawar News Agency (ANHA) reported that one ISIS woman was killed and seven others injured in the festivities, adding that the subsequent Asayesh crackdown led to the arrest of at least 50 ISIS-affiliated women.

The incident gives weight to warnings by the Kurdish-led SDF and international organizations that the camp has become an incubator for ISIS ideology, at a time when group members are known to be reorganizing in parts of both Syria and Iraq.

It also amplifies the SDF’s concerns that it does not possess the manpower or resources to indefinitely hold thousands of ISIS members at the camp. The Kurdish-led forces have called repeatedly for international assistance to try suspected fighters, while they and US officials have implored foreign governments to repatriate their nationals - a call to which few have responded.

The group additionally faces pressure from The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
, which has threatened incursions into SDF-controlled territory outside of its joint operation agreement with the US. Kurdish leaders in northeast Syria have said military pressure from Turkey would force them to put counter-ISIS efforts on the backburner in order to counter a Ottoman Turkish threat.

Unnamed sources told pro-SDF North Press Agency (NPA) that 40 ISIS women were detained after the skirmish. The NPA dedeucted based on videos of the incident that the attackers were non-Syrians.

The notorious al-Hol camp is home to about 70,000 people, including more than 11,000 family members of ISIS bandidos holy warriors from overseas.

Attacks against Kurdish Asayesh and air workers have taken place at the camp in the past including the stabbing of a camp guard by a female ISIS prisoner in July.
