Taliban Civil War

[The CIA/Mi6 is behind all of this “Taliban split” news, including the
fake negotiations and the fake replacement for Mullah Omar. Most of the
key Taliban leaders involved in these charades, either the split, or the negotiations, have been CIA guinea pigs at Guantanamo, where they all received CIA ‘reconditioning.’

RAW involvement is incidental, other than its contribution to the CIA
programming (SEE: The Indian Art of Turning Jihadis Into Anti-Jihadis
and the War On Pakistan). 

Once again, we see the anti-Taliban faction, Fidai Mahaz Mujahideen the remains of the loyalists who followed Dadullah (SEE: Mullah Dadullah Faction Exposes All the Fake Taliban Negotiations), fighting the new CIA Taliban under Mansour.  This time, they not only fight in the south on their home turf, they hit the forces of coalition-supported, Gen. Dostum (SEE: Taliban kill 25 militiamen loyal to first vice president Gen. Dostum).  The real Taliban loyalists are willing to fight a civil war within the Taliban in order to stop the US-created fake Taliban.

This will be another war without borders, fought by the first Islamic Caliphate.]

5 dead in gunbattles between rival Taliban factions

  • AP, Kabul

At least five were killed in gunbattles between rival Taliban factions in southern Afghanistan, a top official with the insurgent group said on Saturday. The clashes took place at a time when members of the Taliban meet in Pakistan to resolve a leadership crisis following the death of its former leader Mullah Mohammad Omar.

It was the first confirmed report of deadly Taliban infighting after an announcement last month that Mullah Omar had been dead for more than two years. Mullah Omar’s family objected after his former deputy Mullah Akhtar Mansoor was named the new Taliban leader and rivalries have spilled into violence, said Ahmad Rabbani, head of a committee trying to reunify the group.

Rabbani spoke from the Pakistani city of Quetta, where hundreds of Taliban loyalists are meeting in an effort to resolve the split.

The five deaths came after Taliban commander Mullah Mansoor Dadullah, loyal to Mullah Omar’s family, led hundreds of gunmen against Mansoor supporters in the southern Afghan province of Zabul, where the Taliban have long had a fighting presence, Rabbani said.

Rabbani said his committee hoped to reach a decision on who should lead the Taliban whose leaders have been based in Pakistan since their regime was overthrown in a US-led invasion in 2001 by Tuesday.

Meanwhile, at least 13 police were reported killed in separate attacks in eastern and southern Afghanistan.

Col Asadullah Ensafi, the deputy police chief in eastern Ghazni province, said at least eight officers were killed and 15 wounded in separate Taliban attacks on police checkpoints on Friday in Andar and Qarabagh districts.

Insurgents have intensified attacks on police checkpoints in recent months, as they typically have few men and are vulnerable. Casualties have soared.

Separately, Ensafi said an Afghan forces airstrike killed 16 insurgents and wounded 17 late on Friday in Ghazni’s capital.

The war with the Taliban has been particularly tough this year for Afghan forces, who are fighting without international combat troops backing them up after the US and NATO pulled out last year.

Separately, in the Chora district of southern Uruzgan province, five police officers were killed when their vehicle hit roadside bomb, said Abdul Qawi, the Chora police chief.

Austria’s OMV sues Turkey for pulling out of Nabucco pipeline project

Austria’s OMV sues Turkey for pulling out of Nabucco pipeline project

FOX NEWS LATINO

 

Austria’s OMV, the largest oil and gas company in Eastern and Central Europe, is suing Turkey and its prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, for pulling out of the Nabucco gas pipeline project, the Austrian business weekly Trend reported.

OMV is seeking damages for Turkey’s decision to back out of the project, which was supported by the European Union and would have built a pipeline to carry natural gas from Azerbaijan to Europe, reducing dependence on Russian gas.

Ankara withdrew from the project and agreed in May to a deal with Russia for an alternative gas pipeline, the TurkStream.

OMV, which filed suit with a World Bank international arbitration panel in June, refused to comment, Trend said.

The Austrian energy company liquidated OMV Nabucco Gas Pipeline International GmbH, a unit created to build Nabucco, at a loss of 177 million euros ($197.9 million), the business weekly said.

OMV said during the release of its quarterly results that it was developing a strategy for expanding cooperation with Russia to shore up revenues amid the collapse of oil prices on the global market and production cuts in Libya and Yemen, two countries where it operates.

The Austrian energy company’s revenues plunged 38 percent in the second quarter, compared to the same period in 2014, despite higher production.

OMV signed a memorandum of understanding with Russia’s Gazprom, as well as with Anglo-Dutch supermajor Royal Dutch Shell and Germany’s E.ON, to double the capacity of the Nord Stream gas pipeline, which links Russia and Germany via the Baltic Sea.

Gazprom and OMV also have an agreement in place to bring the South Stream pipeline, which will carry Russian gas via the Black Sea through the Balkans to Europe, avoiding Ukraine, to Austria. EFE

Egypt Gets Its Own “Supergiant” Natural Gas Deposit In the Med

Italy’s Eni Finds ‘Supergiant’ Natural Gas Field off Egypt 

abcnews_logo_v2

The Italian energy company Eni SpA announced Sunday it has discovered a “supergiant” natural gas field off Egypt, describing it as the “largest-ever” found in the Mediterranean Sea.

The news came a day after Eni CEO Claudio Descalzi met in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the Egyptian leader’s office said.

Eni said the discovery — made in its Zohr prospect “in the deep waters of Egypt” — could hold a potential 30 trillion cubic feet of gas over an area of 100 square kilometers (38.6 square miles).

The discovery well is 190 kilometers (about 120 miles) from the Egyptian coast, and is at a depth of 1,450 meters ( 4,757 feet) in the Shorouk Block, the company said.

“Zohr is the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea and could become one of the world’s largest natural gas finds,” Eni said in a statement. “The discovery, after its full development, will be able to ensure satisfying Egypt’s natural gas demand for decades.”

“Eni will immediately appraise the field with the aim of accelerating a fast-track development of the discovery,” the energy company said.

Descalzi was quoted by Eni as saying that the discovery reconfirms that “Egypt still has great potential” energy-wise. He said “important synergies with the existing infrastructures can be exploited, allowing us a fast production startup.”

Eni has been in Egypt since 1954 through its subsidiary IEOC. It is the main hydrocarbon producer in Egypt, with a daily equity production of 200,000 barrels of oil equivalent, the company said.

Israeli, Jordanian Officers Killed among Tens of Other Al-Nusra Commanders in Airstrike in Southern Syria

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian air force killed a large number of Takfiri militant commanders, including senior Israeli and Jordanian officers, in airstrikes on terrorists’ positions in the Southern province of Dara’a.

At least 42 Al-Nusra Front Takfiri terrorist commanders, including 3 Israeli and Jordanian officers, were killed in the Syrian warplanes’ air raids in Dara’a.

Military sources said that the Syrian airstrikes on al-Nusra Front positions incurred heavy losses on the Takfiri terrorists.

In similar operations on Friday, over 100 militants of al-Nusra Front were killed in the Syrian fighter jets’ operations in Dara’a.

The sources said that, over 100 terrorists, most of them from al-Nusra Front, were killed in a series of army airstrikes that targeted their gatherings in Dael town in the countryside of the southern Dara’a city.

On Thursday, the Syrian army troops killed 46 terrorists in military operations in Aleppo city.

The terrorists were killed in al-Sayyed Ali area.

Meanwhile, the army killed terrorists of al-Nusra Front, and destroyed their arms at the Western neighborhood of Bosra al-Sham in the Eastern countryside of Dara’a.

2 Dalit Women Sentenced To Be Raped for Brother’s Indiscretions With Brahmin Woman

Sentenced to rape?! 1,000s call for action as Indian community council ‘orders’ abuse of 2 sisters

Over 60,000 people signed an Amnesty International UK’s petition demanding the government intervene in the case of two Indian sisters sentenced to rape and humiliation for their brother’s deed by a local council dominated by a higher caste.

An unelected all-male council from a village in India’s Baghpat district handed down the ruling on July 30, ordering Meenakshi Kumari, 23, and her sister, 15, to be raped as well as paraded naked with blackened faces.

The council deemed this an appropriate punishment for their brother’s elopement with a married woman from the higher Jat caste. The brother, known as Ravi, is reportedly from the Dalit caste, which is India’s lowest, formerly known as the “untouchables.” He ran away with his beloved despite fears of retribution.

“Nothing could justify this abhorrent punishment. It’s not fair. It’s not right. And it’s against the law. Demand that the local authorities intervene immediately,” Amnesty International said, calling on people worldwide to sign their petition to persuade the Indian government to intervene.

Fearing for their safety, both sisters fled their village along with their family back in May. Their house was looted soon thereafter.

The Jat caste is very powerful in the village, Amnesty quoted Sumit Kumar, another of Meenaksh’s brothers, as saying. “The Jat decision is final.”

Amnesty UK’s Urgent Action Coordinator, Rachel Alcock, told the Mirror that such “disgusting” punishments are common in the villages all over India. “These Khap courts routinely order vile sexually violent punishments against women. India’s Supreme Court has rightly declared such orders illegal.”  

The Supreme Court has labeled such local councils “kangaroo courts” and branded their decisions as illegal. However, this has not halted such local trials in various states.

Meenakshi has filed a petition with the Supreme Court, asking for protection. Harassment complaints have also been launched against locals and the police from her village.

As for the supposedly runaway lovers, there have been conflicting reports over their whereabouts and whether the woman consented to elope.

According to Amnesty’s version of events, there are concerns over the safety of Ravi’s lover. Zee Media reported that the couple were allegedly in love with each other prior to the woman’s marriage. After she was married to another man in February, she reportedly fled and eloped with Ravi in March.

The Times of India says the runaway couple “had to return, due to pressure from the girl’s family and the UP [Uttar Pradesh] police,” citing the text of Meenakshi’s petition. The petition reportedly claimed that the “elopement invited the wrath of the Jat community and UP Police and as a retaliatory measure her family members were abducted and tortured by police.”

Meenakshi’s brother was allegedly accused in “a false narcotics case” and arrested.

According to the New Indian Express, the couple was found in the city of Meerut, two months after they eloped, and the woman accused Ravi of abducting her. Local police denied the existence of a council “diktat” altogether, saying that the man has been jailed in Meerut, awaiting trial on charges of abducting a married woman.

The widespread problem of rape in Indian society was brought into the global spotlight in December 2012, when a brutal gang rape case in Delhi prompted thousands of people to protest in the streets and hold candlelight vigils. Six men, including one underage teenager, took part in the horrific attack, raping and killing a 23-year-old physiotherapy student. Four adult attackers were eventually sentenced to hang, while one hanged himself in prison. The court, however, has stayed the executions to allow for appeals.

The public outcry persuaded the Indian government to double prison terms for rapists to 20 years. New legislation was also introduced, making it a crime for police officers to refuse to open cases when allegations of rape are made.

The National Crime Records Bureau estimated that one woman gets raped every 22 minutes in India. In May 2014, two teenage cousins were gang-raped and murdered in the small village of Katra Shahadatganj, in Uttar Pradesh.
