Industry Talk: Taliban Attack G4S Compound In Kabul
[Matt at Feral Jundi] Man, for a first post coming back home, this one is a tough one to write about. My heart goes out to the friends and family of those that were killed, and this is a difficult time for the G4S family. This is the second attack on G4S folks (March of this year) and this kind of thing can definitely impact the morale of folks on the ground and especially during the holidays.

With that said, I wanted to write about this and give folks a chance to correct the record or add to the story. There is no AAR on this incident and everything I have on it is from open source or from folks on Facebook that have brought forth information. So with any of this stuff I have posted, please feel free to comment below to correct the record.

My other intent is for other security folks to use this for research and learn from it. The value of incidents like this is that other folks that are performing similar type duties elsewhere in the world, can learn from what happened in incidents like this.

The attack happened November 27, 2018 at 0630 PM. This is from Tolo. For timing and cause, the Taliban said it was in retaliation for an air strike that killed some civilians. It was also timed right after a conference in Geneva where President Ghani spoke of appointing a team to seek a peace deal which would take five years to implement. There have been numerous attacks recently, and in my view, they are a sign that the Taliban wants leverage in the ongoing peace talks.

The coalition have also dropped a record number of ordinance throughout the country in an effort to help Afghan forces stop the Taliban. The Taliban have definitely taken more territory in 2018 and hold a pretty good chunk of Afghanistan.

The method of attack was pretty simple. The suicide bomber drove a water tanker packed with explosives to the gate, outside of the G4S compound in Pul-e-Charkhil, in Kabul’s Police District 9 area. They also call this the Anjuman base and it has other stuff nearby like the Green Village. Once the bomb was detonated and the front gate guards manning the entry control point were taken out, an assault force stormed the compound. The blast was big, and TOLO showed the damage in this video.

...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...
's Khadda Market last night ‐ was caused by a vehicle-borne improvised bomb (VBIED).

The DIG revealed that seven to eight kilograms of VBIED was planted in the car along with six LPG cylinders that were meant to explode with the device. However,
today is that tomorrow you were thinking about yesterday...

Gaza officials: Four hurt by IDF fire in border protest

Hamas court sentences 6 to death for ‘collaborating’ with Israel
[IsraelTimes] One of the condemned is an Israeli resident sentenced in absentia; 5 others are residents of Gazoo

A Hamas, a regional Iranian catspaw,-run military court has sentenced five Paleostinians and an Israeli resident to death for "collaborating" with Israel, the Hamas-controlled Interior Ministry announced on Monday in a memo on its official website.

Five were sentenced to death by hanging and one by firing squad, the ministry said. The Israeli resident, identified by her first name, Amal, was sentenced in absentia, it added.

One of the five Paleostinians sentenced to death, identified by his first name, Ali, was first connected to the Israel intelligence services in 2000 and had since provided it with information on operatives in Gazoo, their residences and their means of transportation, the ministry claimed.

Ali, 48, provided Israel with information on the area where Mazen Fuqha, a senior Hamas official who was mysteriously assassinated in Gazoo in March 2017, lived, it said.

The court also sentenced eight Paleostinians to various degrees of hard labor for "collaborating" with Israel, according to the ministry.

The memo did not say when the Hamas authorities in Gazoo plan to carry out the execution sentences.

Hamas authorities have held public executions in the past of those it accuses of collaborating with Israel.

Hamas, a terror group which seeks to destroy Israel, has controlled Gazoo since 2007, when it ousted the Fatah-dominated Paleostinian Authority from the territory.

Iyad al-Bozm, the front man of the Hamas-run Interior Ministry, vowed that Paleostinians who collaborate with Israel would not escape punishment.

"The collaborators should realize that the occupation will not be able to protect them and that the hand of justice will reach them," Bozm said in a statement posted on the ministry’s website on Monday.

Since 2007, Hamas authorities in Gazoo have carried out 25 execution sentences; in the same period of time, the PA has not enforced any death sentences, according to B’Tselem, an Israeli human rights
One man's rights are another man's existential threat.

A front man for the PA government did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The PA has long criticized Hamas authorities for carrying out executions without the approval of PA President the ineffectual Mahmoud Abbas
... a graduate of the prestigious unaccredited Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow with a doctorate in Holocaust Denial...
According to Paleostinian law, the PA president must approve the enforcement of any execution sentencing. Since 2006, Abbas has not given his official blessing for the implementation of a single death sentence.

International rights groups have also rebuked Hamas for carrying out death sentences.

After three Gazooks were executed for "collaborating" with Israel in 2017, Human Rights Watch, an international human rights group, lambasted the terror group.

"The death penalty
is a barbaric practice that has no place in a modern state," Sarah Leah Whitson, executive director of the Middle East division of Human Rights Watch, said at the time.

"The abhorrent executions by Hamas authorities of three men in Gazoo deemed to be collaborators project weakness, not strength," she said. "Hamas authorities will never achieve true security or stability through firing squads or by the gallows, but rather through respect for international norms and the rule of law."

Iran arrests fertility expert accused of spy links
[DAWN] An Iranian fertility expert accused of working with foreign "espionage networks" to downplay the country’s population crisis has been tossed in the slammer
Youse'll never take me alive coppers!... [BANG!]... Ow!... I quit!
, state news agency IRNA confirmed on Sunday.

It did not give details of the charges, but quoted a lawyer who named the expert as Meimanat Hoss­eini Chavoshi.

She is listed by the Univ­ersity of Melbourne as working at its School of Population and Global Health, published widely on Iran’s once-lauded fertility and family-planning policies.

On Saturday, hard-line new­­­­s­paper Kayhan reported the arrest of several population "activists ... who, under the cover of scientific activities, had infiltrated state bodies".

It said they manipulated statistics and handed sensitive information to Iran’s enemies as part of efforts at "cultural and social invasion".

Iran was once considered an international success story in population control, bringing birth rates down from seven per woman in the 1980s to 1.66 in 2016, according to World Bank figures.

Then-health minister Alir­eza Marandi received the United Nations
...a formerly good idea gone bad...
Popul­ation Award in 2000 for his family planning initiatives.

Chavoshi has written ext­e­nsively about these efforts, which she described as the "fastest fall in fertility ever recorded" in a 2009 book.

But lately there has been concern that Iran overshot its target, with the number of births falling well below the level needed to keep the population growing.

In 2012, supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said it was a mistake to have continued the family planning policies of the 1990s, and called for new measures to double the population to 150 million.

"There is evidence these individuals are connected to Western espionage networks," Nasrollah Pejmanfar, a member of parliament’s cultural commission, told the newspaper.

Jihadist rebels obtained 100 drones from Turkey -- report
[ALMASDARNEWS] The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham

Jihadist rebels caught sneaking towards Syrian Army post for new ambush
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) caught a group of jihadist rebels attempting to sneak towards their lines for a new ambush in the northern countryside of Hama on Monday.

According to a military communique from the Hama province, the Syrian Arab Army was able to foil the attempted by ambush by the jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham
after they were spotted moving towards the SAA’s positions in Tal Bizam.

The communique said that the Syrian Arab Army was able to kill and wound most of the jihadist fighters before they could return to their lines in the northern countryside of the Hama Governorate.

The jihadist rebels have been carrying out several attacks like this in the past three weeks, prompting the Syrian military to increase their security in northwest Syria.

US-backed forces allegedly enter Daesh’s new capital
[ALMASDARNEWS] The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) allegedly entered the Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're 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 the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
’s (ISIS/ISIS/IS/ISIS) new capital in Syria after a fierce battle this afternoon.

According to reports from local activists, the Syrian Democratic Forces entered the town of Hajin from its northeastern axis after overrunning the ISIS defenses at this flank.

Neither the Syrian Democratic Forces nor the U.S. Coalition have confirmed these reports as of yet.

a lie repeated often enough remains a lie...
if these reports prove true, this could be a major blow to the ISIS terrorist organization, as Hajin has served as their de-facto capital in both Syria and Iraq since they lost Raqqa, djinn-infested Mosul
... the home of a particularly ferocious and hairy djinn...
, and Mayadeen.

Hajin is a strategic town that is located in the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
