Daesh launches first attack on Afghan government forces

KABUL, Afghanistan

Daesh launched its first attack on the Afghan security forces early Sunday with hundreds of fighters attacking police posts in eastern Nangarhar province, officials said.

Daesh, which emerged in Afghanistan in 2014 and has grown by imposing itself on the Taliban’s recruiting ground, attacked up to 10 posts in Achin district, around 150 kilometers (93 miles) east of capital Kabul.

District chief Haji Ghalib Mujahid said the attacks were launched simultaneously at 3 a.m. local time (2230GMT).

“Our forces managed to repel their attack but the fight is underway,” he told Anadolu Agency. Several militants have been reported killed and wounded while three Afghan soldiers were killed and eight others injured.

The attacks came just after the UN warned of Daesh’s growing presence in Afghanistan as a U.S.-led international security force looks to withdraw at the end of 2016.

Nicholas Haysom, UN’s envoy to Afghanistan, warned the group had established a “toehold” in Afghanistan.

Daesh has fought the Taliban repeatedly over territory in Nangarhar and targeted young men for membership in areas previously under the sway of the Taliban. The new group claims to have usurped the Taliban in five districts.

There are concerns that the emergence of Daesh could change the nature of the insurgency in Afghanistan, where 13,000 foreign troops remain following the withdrawal of most last year.

Muslims Killing Muslims-Yemen mosque bombing kills dozens during Eid prayers. 

Sanaa, Yemen (CNN)A bombing in a crowded mosque in Yemen’s capital killed at least 29 people attending Eid prayers Thursday.

Officials fear the death toll from the attack at the Al Bilaili mosque in Sanaa will rise, because dozens of worshippers suffered severe injuries.

The terrorist group ISIS claimed responsibility on social media for the bombing. ISIS posted the statement on Twitter and said the bombing came as “part of a series of military operations to revenge Muslims against Houthis.”

Houthi rebels are acting as the government in Yemen, having driven the internationally recognized government out of power.

Video taken after the attack showed the power of the blast.

Rubble covered the streets. A hole was blown through what appeared to be a thick cement wall. Bits of stone and plaster littered the prayer floor inside the mosque.

Blood appeared to have stained the carpet where the faithful would have been praying. And shoes, which Muslims take off before entering a mosque, remained unclaimed outside.

5 things to know about Eid al-Adha

The attack is the sixth in three months in which a mosque has been targeted.

The early morning prayer service was meant to mark the beginning of Eid al-Adha, which commemorates the prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son for God. The holiday is one of two major ones in Islam.

Assad Speaks Truth to Power: Stop Supporting Terrorists!

Russia’s military build-up in Syria has grown to include the shipment of a half-dozen highly sophisticated battle tanks — and more troops — a defense official told Fox News, in what the source called the “first clear sign of offensive weapons arriving in Syria.”

The Pentagon has now tracked a total of 15 Russian Antonov-124 Condor flights into Syria, reflecting a steady stream of military cargo into Syria. According to the latest intelligence, this also includes the arrival of two more Russian cargo ships, containing the tanks.

Up to this point, the official said, the Russian cargo and weapons that have been delivered to Syria could be viewed as defensive in nature. The arrival of tanks cannot be viewed this way.

The official said that Russian offensive operations could launch from Bassel Al-Assad International Airport “very soon.” Source: Fox News

DAWN OF WAR: Russian Tanks, Artillery Massing Near Syrian Airfield

USA to drown Russia in sea of fire for supporting Assad

US threatens to expand the international isolation of the Russian Federation for the support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. According to White House spokesman Josh Earnest, if Russia does not join the US-led international coalition that conducts a counter-terrorist operation in Iraq and Syria and will support Assad instead, the move with isolate Moscow from the international community even more.

Josh Earnest also accused the Syrian leader of the humanitarian tragedy, having obviously disregarded the humanitarian catastrophes that the United States has been causing in many countries of the world.
The Kremlin believes that interfering into internal affairs of Syria is unacceptable. As President Vladimir Putin believes, it is up to Syrians to determine their own future. Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there is still no clear understanding of what could be an alternative to the incumbent legitimate government of Syria in ensuring security in the country.

AND EVEN MORE DEAD MUSLIMS!!!

The ISIL Takfiri terrorist group executed at least 30 of its own members due to their plan to carry out an operation against the group’s leadership in the rebel-held city of Mosul, a local official said.

”The ISIL executed 30 members of its own by firing squad in the old prison in Mosul,” said media official of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Mosul Saeed Mamouzini.

“The executed ISIL members were accused of planning operations against the group,” He further added.

“The ISIL has executed more than 120 of its armed men on charges of planning a coup against ISIL leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the last few days,” Manouzini went on to say.

Gruesome violence has plagued the Northern and Western parts of Iraq ever since ISIL Takfiri terrorists launched an offensive in June 2014, and took control of portions of Iraqi territory.

The militants have been committing vicious crimes against all ethnic and religious communities in Iraq, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and others.

Units of army soldiers joined by volunteer fighters are seeking to win back militant-held regions in joint operations.

The replacement of al-Nusra Front-affiliated terrorist group, Ahrar al-Sham’s top commander is a plot hatched by Turkey to pave the ground for creating a buffer zone in Syria, an informed source said.

Mohaned al-Masri Aka Abu Yehia al-Hamawi was appointed as Ahrar al-Sham’s new leader last week to replace Hashim al-Sheikh Aka Abu Jaber.

“Abu Yahia has close relations with Turkey’s intelligence agency due to Ahrar Al-Sham Mufti Abol Abbas Shami’s ties with the agency since the 1990s,” an informed source told the Lebanese al-Safir newspaper on Tuesday.

“Turkey needed a trustworthy partner to create a buffer zone in Northern Syria and Abu Jaber was not able to settle the internal differences of Ahrar al-Sham and had a negative stance on the creation of a buffer zone,” he added.

According to the report, before Abu Jaber, two other religious leaders of Ahrar al-Sham, including Abu Shuaib al-Misri and Abu Mohammad al-Sadiq, had left the group for their opposition to Turkey’s buffer zone plan.

Ahrar Al-Sham is affiliated to the Al-Nusra Front, the al-Qaeda’s official branch in Syria. The 2 groups are members of Jaish al-Fath coalition, which is backed by Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and aims to seize Idlib.

Certain media reports had claimed in August that the Turkish forces were ready for military intervention in Syria under the pretext of creating a buffer zone to protect the Turkish borders against the threat of the terrorist groups.

In October, Syria’s Foreign Ministry rejected foreign powers’ talk about imposing a buffer zone on Syrian soil.

“The Turkish attempts to establish a buffer zone on the Syrian soil is a flagrant violation to the charters of the UN and international law,” the ministry said in a statement.

It added that “Syria totally rejects the establishment of a buffer zone on any part of its terrain under any pretext and also rejects the foreign military intervention on its soil”.

The ministry stressed that the Syrian government would take all necessary measures to protect its national sovereignty and the unity of its territories after consulting with other countries.

The statement came as Turkey had been floating the idea of setting up a buffer zone on the Syrian side of the borders under many pretexts, mainly to solve the issue of the Syrian refugees on Turkish soil.

Thats a lot of Dead Muslims.

Prepare for the Battle of Baghdad: ISIS hold victory parade after taking key city of Ramadi just 60 miles from capital in an orgy of violence and beheadings | Daily Mail Online

I guess our bombers missed this???

ISIS militants have held a twisted victory parade after taking the key city of Ramadi in an orgy of violence and beheadings – and the extremists could march on the Iraqi capital Baghdad within the next month.

Mutilated bodies scatter the streets of the ‘Gateway of Baghdad’, where Islamic State slaughtered around 500 and forced nearly 25,000 to flee their homes over the last few days.

Now ISIS has released images of militants celebrating, children wielding automatic weapons and a fleet of pick-up trucks carrying its jubilant fighters through the blood-stained streets of Ramadi.

Shi’ite fighters have already launched a counter-offensive to recapture the city, but these kinds of tactics play straight into Islamic State’s grand plan to spark all-out war in the region, according to the Middle East director of counter-terrorism think-tank RUSI.

Islamic State militants are already marching east towards the Habbaniya army base – around 20 miles east of Ramadi – where a column of 3,000 Shi’ite paramilitaries are amassing, witnesses and a military officer has said.

And if ISIS manage to reach Baghdad, it would be ‘utter carnage’, Professor Gareth Stansfield told MailOnline.

Show of strength: ISIS flags line the streets of Ramadi as a procession of militants - riding on the backs of Toyota Land Cruisers - parade through the city

Surrounded: ISIS already has control of Fallujah which is on Baghdad's doorstep and has now conquered the strategically-important city of Ramadi further west

Parade: After slaughtering 500 people and forcing over 8,000 from their homes in Ramadi (pictured), ISIS triumphantly drive through the city in a fleet of pick-up trucks

Sick: One twisted image released through Islamic State's social media channels shows a small child carrying what appears to be a mortar shell in Ramadi -  after their victory in the city

Insurgency: The city where ISIS militants fired rocket propelled grenades contains sacred Shi'ite shrines which - if destroyed - would force the militia to take on ISIS head on, experts have said

Innocence lost: ISIS has released pictures showing its militants - and young followers (pictured) - celebrating the capture of Ramadi as Shi'ite militias prepare a counter-offensive to retake the city

 He said: ‘If ISIS turn up in great numbers in Baghdad, it will be an absolute slaughter between Sunni’s and Shia’s there.

‘They [ISIS] are now having so many successes, and moving so quickly, that Baghdad is under very real threat from ISIS forces outside Baghdad and also the ISIS terror cells inside Baghdad as well.
