Among the dead was a child and an Islamic State fighter.  Violence is not new to...

Infant Mortality Spikes in Afghanistan as Officials Say 13,000+ Newborns Have Died Since January

The Afghan government has estimated that more than 13,000 newborns have died in the country so far this year – just six months after the US withdrew humanitarian aid, seized official bank accounts and sanctioned the new regime in Kabul.  Health Ministry spokesman Jawid Hazher “expressed alarm” over the growing crisis last week, saying there have been about 124,800 premature births in Afghanistan since the beginning of 2022 alone.  “Normally 10 percent of these children die,” he added, “so, as an estimate, 13,700 of these children died” since January.  While Hazher said economic factors...

Al-Quraishi blew himself up during the erupted clashes. According to the White Helmets, thirteen people were also killed in the explosion, including four children and three women.   It is worth noting...

A Complete List Of Individuals Targeted By Pegasus Spyware

2022 01 20 07 52

The targets are journalists, activists, opposition party leaders, human rights lawyers, 11 unnamed U.S. officials in Uganda, Palestinian activists. The Israeli-made Pegasus spyware, sold by the cyberoffense firm NSO to state intelligence agencies around the world, has become infamous in recent years. Exploiting unknown loopholes in WhatsApp, iMessage and Android has allowed the group’s clients to potentially infect any smartphone and gain full access to it – in some cases without the owner even clicking or opening a file. Digital forensics groups such as Amnesty International and the...

Salafis Throwing Bombs: How American and British Planners Partnered With Al-Qaeda Affiliated Groups At the Start of the Syrian Civil War

2011 syria protests.svg

Introduction In the mainstream view, al-Qaeda did not play a role in the Syria conflict until Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi dispatched his deputy, Abu Muhammad al-Jolani, to Syria in August 2011 to establish a wing of the group there, called Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front. Additionally, al-Qaeda allegedly did not carry out any military operations until December 2011 and did not announce its establishment until January 2012. However, there is evidence that al-Qaeda affiliated militants were involved in the Syrian conflict much earlier. Saudi intelligence...
