Two drug cartel leaders were killed Saturday in separate clashes with Mexican authorities in the northern state of Tamaulipas, the Associated Press reported.
Julian Loisa Salinas, dubbed "Comandante Toro" was gunned down by Mexican marines in Reynosa, a city across from McAllen, Texas where he was reportedly the Gulf cartel’s local leader.
His rival, Francisco “Pancho” Carreon of the Zetas cartel was shot further south in the Tamaulipas state capital of Ciudad Victoria, according to authorities.
“The government of Tamaulipas and federal forces will not relent against crime," the local government said in a tweet following the separate incidences that left vehicles aflame on highways.
Earlier this month, Alfredo Beltran Leyva, another former Mexican drug cartel leader and once an ally of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, was sentenced to life in a U.S. prison.
Mexico’s over decade-long drug war is estimated to have claimed approximately 120,000 lives from 2006-2012, not including disappearances.
A report by the Council on Foreign Relations blames the country’s weak judicial and police institutions, as well as its proximity to the world’s largest consumer economy for harboring sophisticated drug networks.
Despite diplomatic tensions, U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to join forces with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto to battle drug cartels and the flow of narcotics into the U.S
Wow, TV in Iraq is pretty intense!
An Iraqi TV crew went along with Peshmerga forces as they Attacked 7 villages under ISIS control and retook all of them while killing around 120 ISIS fighters.
This was the moment when a pinned ISIS fighter got served his 72 virgins LIVE on TV.
Looks like these boys just came up with a primetime series. Any name suggestions?
A new ICM poll has discoveredtwo out of three Muslims in Britain would not give the government any information if they knew details about a terror plot.
These disturbing poll results seem to indicate the government’s counter-terrorism program, named Prevent, is unlikely to provide much usable information on active threats, if it passes along any information at all, The Express reports.
The results also suggest the existence of a society deep inside Britain that is fundamentally opposed to its values and will actively subvert the government to protect its own members. Further questions in the survey revealed even more evidence that Muslims diverge entirely from British norms.
For example, over 50 percent of Muslims think homosexuality should be illegal. A total of 23 percent of Muslims want Sharia law to become the dominant legal system in the country. Exactly 31 percent are completely comfortable with one man having multiple wives.
Trevor Phillips, former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, said the results showed “the unacknowledged creation of a nation within the nation, with its own geography, its own values and its own very separate future.”
This future, evidently, is opposed to what’s left of British values.
Phillips, who originally popularized the term Islamophobia, now understands Muslims, unlike previous waves of immigrants, are totally unwilling to assimilate and have aspirations instead to fundamentally transform Britain.
“For a long time, I too thought that Europe’s Muslims would become like previous waves of migrants, gradually abandoning their ancestral ways, wearing their religious and cultural baggage lightly, and gradually blending into Britain’s diverse identity landscape.”
Apparently the Isis terrorist group is still using MapQuest in order to find the best route to launch of VBIED attacks on Iraqi troops, because they clearly took a wrong turn right into an Abrams tank packed with a shit load of firepower ready to send them to Allah.
The slow-motion explosion is nothing short of spectacular as you see both body parts and pieces of the transportation being sent flying miles high into the sky.
An outpost of ISIS fighters comes under intense direct fire attack. They are unable to return fire accurately and know they are about to be overrun. They decide to use a suicide vehicle borne improvised explosive device to cover their retreat from the position.
The deadly fight between Somali pirates and a Private security guard on board a cargo ship. when pirates were trying to board the ship.
while it is not visible on the video, return fire from AK-47s on the skiffs barely missed the head of one of his guards.
All four ship guards had fired warning shots, and that barrage of gunfire may have provoked a firefight that masked the sound of return shots from the skiffs on the video, he said. Trident has changed its procedures and now permits only the team leader to fire warnings.
The Palestinian from Nablus who stabbed 4 people today at a Tel Aviv hotel, got a permit to enter inside Israel as a member of a special tour for Palestinians to get to know people in Israel. The tour was organized by the NPT group who works for co-existence and good relations between the two people. The Palestinian entered the Herodes hotel but was driven out, he then entered the Leonardo hotel on the Tel Aviv promenade, and stabbed 3 men and a woman, including 70 yrs old man. He then fled the scene but was caught and arrested by police.
Every day we seem to come across numerous videos proving just how stupid those in the terrorist group Isis actually are.
Today, we have yet another example of why every decent insurgency should read the manuals on their weaponry as of one of these fighters, who attempts to shoot mortars in rapid succession, which subsequently swells the metal and infringes upon the mortars actually firing as they should. Needless to say, this terrorist is off to see if the myth of 72 virgins is accurate or not.
A B.C. fashion model-turned-freedom fighter is speaking out about her decision to rejoin the fight against ISIS in Syria.
Hanna Bohman, 48, has travelled to Syria twice. She returned to Vancouver in June, 2016 after rejoining other foreigners in a faction of Kurdish fighters.
"I needed to do something with my life. I was bored. I didn't feel like I had done anything that I felt was really important," she told CTV Vancouver.
She shrugged off the thought that it seems an odd decision for a Canadian citizen, with no connection to Syria, to pick up a gun and join a conflict in the Middle East.
Bohman said she joined the YPJ – the female brigade of the Kurdish People's Protection Units– after getting smuggled into the country.
"They were fighting for women's rights in the Middle East and they're an actual fighting army," she said about her desire to join the YPJ. "I never joined the Canadian army because the women don't really get to fight. They mainly get to do logistical things."
Bohman is planning to head back to the area soon.
"I'm going to the region again, whether I can go back to Syria again, I'm not sure," she said.
She emphasized that she made her decision to join Kurdish fighters after first deciding against participating in the Crimea conflict, and that she was able to do so because she had both the time and money needed for the travel.
A suspected ISIS sleeper cell launched an attack on Iraqi Federal Police south of Mosul Sunday morning.
The Australian Defence Force has published extraordinary images of its planes dropping bombs on Islamic State targets in Iraq and Syria.
It includes dramatic footage of missiles destroying a former agricultural compound in northern Iraq which ISIS used to make bombs.
Footage of the exploding weapons-manufacturing site illustrates the contribution Australia is making to the American-led war on terror in the Middle East.
The Australian military has publicized the capability of its fighter Hornet jets in the Middle East, two weeks after U.S. President Donald Trump ordered airstrikes on Syrian air force bases to thwart President Bashar al-Assad.
Australian F/A-18A fighter jets have been deployed as part of Operation OKRA's fight against the Islamist terror group, ISIS.
The ADF has tweeted vision of its jets 'striking targets to disrupt and degrade Daesh' - the Arabic term for Islamic State which the terror group violently objects to.
The Australian military's Air Task Group has flown been increasingly active in the former ISIS strongholds since the start of 2017, when Mr Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.
The Department of Defence has confirmed that about 780 ADF personnel have been sent to the Middle East.
Of those men and women in uniform, about 300 are part of the Air Task Group, about 80 linked to the Special Operations Task Group and about 300 to Task Group Taji, the Herald Sun reported.
The footage also shows aircraft being refueled midair by a KC-30a multi-role tanker.
The vision was shared on the official Twitter account for HQ Joint Task Force 633, which exercises command and control over the ADF in the Middle East region.

In the wake of a Detroit-area physician being arrested and charged for mutilating two young girls’ genitalia, two more people were arrested in conjunction with the case on Friday, including another doctor. Dr. Fakhruddin Attar was arrested by federal agents for allowing Dr. Jumana Nagarwala to utilize his clinic to perform the mutiliations. Dr. Attar’s wife, Farida Attar, was also arrested and has been accused of assisting Nagarwala with the mutilations. Per the criminal complaint, it is alleged that the three are involved in a conspiracy to perform the mutilations as part of a religious and cultural practice. All three are part of the Dawoodi Bohra religious community within the area. (Dawoodi Bohra is a sect of Shia Islam based out of India.)
Dr. Attar’s defense attorney, Mary Charter, told reporters that he “is not aware of any crimes committed at his clinic… This is frightening for them and terrifying.” Currently, Nagarwala is being held without bond after being charged in federal court on April 12th. She potentially faces life in prison. The Attars have been charged with conspiracy to commit female genital mutilation and aiding and abetting.
Shocking footage taken on the Champs Elysees reveals the moment the first two loud shots can be heard, sending shoppers scattering across the street.
Further shots can be heard being fired in the gun fight after at least one attacker pulled up next to a stationary police van on the busy Paris street before opening fire, killing one officer immediately.
Two further officers and a female tourist were injured in the scuffle, before authorities opened fire – killing the attacker.

Hi everyone, I was sitting down minding my own business on my phone when a muslim woman confronted me telling me I took her pic. Told her to fuck off basically and that I did not care what she felt or thought. She then started saying Muslim this and that. So I decided to bring up Jesus and let her know that her group of wild women should go to church and ask Jesus for forgiveness. I also let them know they are going to go to hell for not believing in Jesus and not going to church. Then some guy who was with them confronted me for preaching and knocked phone out of my hand.cops 👮!
Syria still has up to 3 tons of chemical weapons, Israeli defense officials said Wednesday in the first specific intelligence assessment of President Bashar al-Assad's weapons capabilities since a deadly chemical attack earlier this month.
A dispute between two Arab residents of Kafr Manda in the western Galilee led to a mass disturbance involving fireworks and rocks, which injured two people and damaged nearby homes and vehicles.
Police arrived at the scene and were forced to disperse agitators using stun grenades and tear gas. A number of families were forced to leave the village until the end of the quarrel, which lasted about an hour and a half.
"We woke up from the noise of fireworks. My children were terrified and began to cry. It sounded like war," a resident told Ynet. "After we saw that the fight was becoming a danger, I decided to leave the village together with my family and spent the night with relatives. "This is not the first time that such serious acts have occurred here. There are irresponsible people here that shouldn't have a place in our village."
Police forces spent the night in the village and started an investigation into the incident.

This is quite a clip and has a couple of cultural references that need adding. First, the man on a rant, Farid Smahi, who was hauled away from Anne Hidalgo yesterday as she left the Marks & Spencer store where terrorist Karim Cheurfi was gunned down by police, referenced the most famous case of malpractice of French jurisprudence.
From the translator, Ava-Lon:
Farid is using the expression J’accuse which entered in the French language about 120 years ago during the cause of Dreyfus.
Dreyfus was a Jewish officer in the French army who was tried for treason (in favor of Germans, who France was fighting at that moment) in 1894 in an atmosphere of prejudice and where evidence against him was fabricated.
“J’accuse” was an open letter of French writer Emile Zola, published in January 1898,concerning the case of Dreyfus, where Zola was accusing French government of antisemitism, bias, and unlawful jailing of Alfred Dreyfus. For that letter Zola was himself prosecuted for libel and found guilty in February 1898. He had to exile himself to England to avoid imprisonment. He returned to France the following year and continued his defense of Dreyfus, who was retired the same year, found guilty again, but was pardoned (all seems to point to the government trying to save face).
Only in 1906, on appeal, Dreyfus obtain annulment of his guilty verdict and even awarded the Legion d’honneur the highest French media (with mention “for a soldier who has endured an unparalleled martyrdom”).
The expression “J’accuse” since became the call of everyone who is fighting greater power. Even if Farid wasn’t aware of the exact case he sure used the expression well.
A 23-year-old woman, Paola Ramirez, died after being shot in the head in the western city of San Cristobal, the state prosecution service said later in a statement.
Non-government rights group Provea said the woman died “in the context of the demonstrations.” Prosecutors said they were investigating both killings.
Authorities had already reported five other people killed, including a boy of 13, in protests around the country earlier this month.
Abdurakhmon Uzbeki, a crony of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi who was tied to the deadly New Year’s nightclub bombing in Turkey was killed by US forces in Syria, the US Central Command announced today. Troops killed ISIS “facilitator” Abdurakhmon Uzbeki on April 6, said Col. John Thomas, chief spokesman for US Central Command. Uzbeki was tied to the New Year’s attack on a nightclub in Istanbul that killed 39, the military said. “He was involved in plotting external terror plots,” Thomas said. “We’ve clearly linked him with the Istanbul” attack.
The ground operation was conducted by US Special Operations forces near Mayadin, Syria, according to a defense official who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the operation, the network reported. Mayadin is located in Deir Ezzor province in eastern Syria.
It’s a rare use of US Special Operations ground units for combat inside Syria.
A longstanding expeditionary targeting force made up of Special Operations troops has been tasked with these types of missions.
A protester joining the thousands calling for an end to Venezuela’s socialist regime on Thursday approached an armed military vehicle wearing nothing but a knapsack and holding a Bible, demanding law enforcement stop attacking protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets.
The man’s body sported countless wounds that appeared to be the product of a spray of rubber bullets, which continued as he climbed onto a military tank yelling, “stop throwing bombs,” referring to the tear gas canisters used against civilians.
“Please stop lobbing bombs, brother,” he repeatedly told the soldiers and members of Venezuela’s Bolivarian National Guard (GNB).
Videos of the man’s protest (warning: graphic) circulating on social media show him approaching authorities slowly, climbing on the tank and being immediately hit with a barrage of rubber bullets. Close-up images of the man show the book in his hand was, indeed, a Bible. On Thursday night, CNN quoted the man speaking to local media, stating that his rubber bullet wounds hurt less than the hunger facing Venezuela.
Venezuela is facing a severe food crisis following years of socialist mismanagement that has included strict price controls, rationing, and giving the military full control of the nation’s food supply. The average Venezuelan lost nearly 20 pounds in 2016 due to food shortages, and 15 percent of Venezuelans rely on eating industrial garbage to survive. Polls show a majority cannot secure three meals of food a day for themselves, with basic food items such as flour, vegetable oil, and milk in short supply.
Dictator Nicolás Maduro has blamed the shortages on the “economic war,” a term used to decribe a conspiracy theory in which the United States is attempting to weaken socialist Venezuela in order to execute an Iraq-style invasion on the country, and has arrested bakers unable to produce the quantities of bread the government has deemed appropriate on a daily basis.
Watch as a Venezuelan woman attempts to plead with the policeman to stop shooting innocent protesters and ends up being shot directly in the face herself. The type of weapon used may or may not be lethal, however we do know the woman was in fact shot in the face as you can see in the video.
Wonder if those 72 virgins appreciate their stupidity? Because this is one of the dumbest attacks on an airplane you're ever going to find.

The focus in the investigation into the latest Paris attack, which claimed the life of a police officer and left two others wounded late on Thursday, is turning towards the identity of the attacker.
ISIL have already claimed him as one of their own, using his military pseudonym, but the 39-year-old was known to French police under another name and was being watched.
This man was known to be highly dangerous since a car chase and gun battle with police in 2001 led to a 15-year sentence in 2005 on three counts of attempted murder of police officers.
“The identity of the attacker is known, it has been verified. I will not give it to you as investigations and searches are already taking place to determine whether or not he was making use of accomplices,” said Paris prosecutor Francois Molins.
Police are searching the attacker’s house in Chelles, an outer eastern Parisian district, from where he took his own car, used in the attack, along with an assault rifle.
“Solitary. Very solitary. Perhaps (he had) schizophrenia, I don’t know. But in any case, the guy was very solitary and he treated everyone properly. So to do this it means he lost his mind,” said a neighbour.
France 2 television reported the man had recently been released due to lack of evidence after being suspected of trying to buy firearms.
A video surfaced of police officers shooting a man in the leg on Hobbemaplein in The Hague. The police confirmed that it involves an incident on the square on April 12th, AD reports.
According to the police, the man was waving a knife and would not listen to police officers' instructions to drop the weapon. A warning shot was fired. When the man still refused to listen to the police, the officers decided to shoot him in the leg.
The video shows the man walking towards the officers with an object in his hand. There is the bang of a warning shot, then another of the targeted shot. The man falls to the ground, grabbing his leg. He shouts: "Aallahu Akbar" - God is great. Four police officers detain him.
The video was filmed from a home near the square in Schilderswijk. Another video showing the same incident seems to have been filmed from the street, close to the shooting
A top official from the Palestinian Authority (PA) told reporters Thursday that convicted Palestinian terrorists who receive cash benefits from the PA are "victims of Israeli terrorism."
Riyad Mansour, the "Permanent Observer of the State of Palestine [sic] to the United Nations," was asked to comment on the PA's payment of benefits to the family of the terrorist who murdered an American tourist last year.
The Taylor Force Act, a bill under consideration in Congress that would cut U.S. aid to the PA over the payments, is named after the U.S. Army veteran and Vanderbilt graduate student who was killed.
The PA spends approximately $300 million a year on payments to convicted terrorists and their families, money that originates largely from aid donations by western countries. The terrorism benefits program, which comprises around eight percent of the PA budget, has emerged as a significant point of contention in U.S.-Palestinian relations.
"I don't know exactly what you're referring to," Mansour responded, before claiming that the PA is against the killing of civilians. The reporter repeated his query about Taylor Force.
"Who? Who is?" Mansour asked.
"Taylor Force, an American who was killed in Jaffa last year, March 8, and the family of the terrorist who killed him are receiving payments from the PA. What do you have to say about that?" the reporter asked.
"Listen, this issue is, that is now, uh, in circulation for discussions," Mansour said, later asking rhetorically, "Who is the killer and who is the terrorist?"
"There are a large number of Palestinians who are receiving compensation," Mansour acknowledged. "They are victims of Israeli terrorism."
