LIBYA: ‘ Al-Qaeda Battling Islamic State after one of their leaders are Killed ‘

#AceNewsReport – LIBYA:Post Update:June.10: Al-Qaeda-linked militants are battling an Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) affiliate in eastern Libya after one of their leaders was shot dead, AP reported.

Nasr Akr, an Al-Qaeda-inspired militant, was assassinated along with his aide in the eastern town of Darna. The Shura Council of Darna’s jihadists announced his killing on Wednesday, blaming it on Islamic State militants.

The killing sparked heavy fighting, leaving at least nine IS militants dead, according to witnesses. The so-called Islamic State seized control of Darna last year.

The IS group began as an Al-Qaeda affiliate, but later fell out with the jihadist network.

INDIA: ‘ Maoist Rebels Killed in Gun-Battle with Security Forces ‘

#AceNewsReport – INDIA:June.09: Twelve Maoist rebels were killed in a gun battle with security forces in a remote forest in eastern India, police said Tuesday.

The fighting broke out when policemen tried to intercept a group of suspected guerrillas late Monday in eastern Jharkand state, a rebel stronghold, AFP reported.

The Maoist insurgency began in the 1960s and has cost thousands of lives, as rebels say they are fighting against the authorities for land and other rights for poor tribal groups.

WASHINGTON: ‘ TSA employs 73-Airport workers with Terrorist links ‘

#AceNewsReport – WASHINGTON:June.08: The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was unable to detect 73 commercial airport workers who had links to terrorist activities, but were given access to secure airport areas, US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) said in a report released on Monday.

' TSA Employ Airport Workers with Terrorist Links '
‘ TSA Employ Airport Workers with Terrorist Links ‘

The review also found that thousands of workers’ vetted records contained incomplete or inaccurate details.

“TSA did not identify 73 individuals with terrorism-related category codes because TSA is not authorized to receive all terrorism-related information under current interagency watch-listing policy.”

TSA had limited oversight over commercial airports and relied on the airport operators to perform workers’ criminal history and work authorization checks, according to OIG.

“Without complete and accurate information, TSA risks credentialing and providing unescorted access to secure airport areas for workers with potential to harm the nation’s air transportation system.”

TSA has been the subject of renewed criticism after media reported on June 1, 2015 that the Agency failed to identify explosives and weapons in 67 out of 70 tests at airports across the United States.

Following the disclosure of the TSA screening failure to the public, DHS revised TSA’s operating procedures and reassigned TSA Administrator Melvin Carraway.

SYRIA: ‘ Muslims Defy ISIL & Open New Mosque Named After Virgin Mary ‘

#AceBreakingNews – SYRIA:June.07: Muslims in the Syrian city of Tartous have inaugurated a mosque named after the Virgin Mary, the Syrian Arab News Agency has reported.

 Speaking at the inauguration, Syrian Minister of Religious Endowments Mohammad Abdul-Sattar al-Sayyed noted that this was the first time in the Muslim world when a mosque has been named after the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ. He added that the mosque embodies calls for amenity and fraternity between Syrians of all faiths.

Al-Sayyed noted that Syria is one of the places where Islamic culture and architecture originated, adding that Syrians of all confessions deplore and condemn the barbarity with which ultra-extremists from ISIL and other terrorist groups operating inside Syria demolish and deface places of worship.

Tartous and Lattakia Maronite Patriarchate representative Antoine Deeb noted that the symbolic gesture of naming the Mosque after Mary shows that Islam and Christianity share the messages of peace and love.

SYRIA: ‘ Lebanese Troops Kill 16-Al-Nursa Front Terrorists ‘

#AceNewsReport – SYRIA:June.06: Lebanese servicemen eliminated 16 militants of the al-Nusra Front terrorist group near the border with Syria, a source in Lebanon’s army said Saturday.

“Sixteen Jabhat al-Nusra militants were killed. The artillery of Lebanese army straddled the [al-Nusra] detachment, which tried to break into the al-Uyun gorge in the south-east of Arsal town [near Syrian border],” the source told RIA Novosti.

Arsal was the epicenter of fierce clashes between the Lebanese forces and the Islamic State and the Nusra Front rebel groups in August 2014. The extremists captured some 30 Lebanese servicemen, of whom they have since released eight and executed four.

 After the Lebanese army liberated the town, the terrorists fled to the mountains, organizing rear bases there. They occasionally attack Lebanese villages and the army checkpoints from remote mountainous areas.

AUSTRALIA: ‘ Islamic State has gained Potential to Build Chemical Weapons – Reports ‘

#AceNewsServices – Featured Report:AUSTRALIA:June.06: Australia’s foreign minister, Julie Bishop, has voiced concerns over an alleged possibility of the Islamic State group to build chemical weapons.

There have been several reports of ISIS using toxic chlorine gas in homemade bombs in Iraq and Syria.

“The use of chlorine by Daesh [an Arabic term for ISIS], and its recruitment of highly technically trained professionals, including from the west, have revealed far more serious efforts in chemical weapons development,” Bishop said late on Friday in Perth.

“Daesh is likely to have amongst its tens of thousands of recruits the technical expertise necessary to further refine precursor materials and build chemical weapons,” she said.

Chlorine gas is a strong oxidizer, which may react with flammable materials. The toxic gas, which was first used as a weapon during WWI by Germany, is on the banned list of chemicals under the 1997 Chemical Weapons Convention.

Kurdish officials said its peshmerga fighters, busy reinforcing their positions on a highway between Mosul and the Syrian border, came under attack from an IS suicide bomber driving a truck filled with toxic chlorine gas late January. Authorities say their forces destroyed the truck with a rocket before it had a chance to detonate near soldiers.

Shortly after the attack, the Kurdish fighters began to complain of “nausea, vomiting, dizziness and weakness” – all common symptoms of chlorine poisoning. Soon they found “20 empty canisters” in the back of the attacker’s vehicle.

The Kurds, who have been battling against Islamic State militants since last year, sent the remains of the suicide bomber to a laboratory, which said “the samples contained levels of chlorine that suggested the substance was used in weaponized form.”

The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the chemical weapons watchdog, conducted a fact-finding mission in neighboring Syria last year, where ISIS has been fighting against the Bashar Assad government.

According to the OPCW probe, chlorine was used “systematically and repeatedly” in Syria in 2014.

According to the OPCW probe, chlorine was used “systematically and repeatedly” in Syria in 2014.

The report stated that chlorine was used in attacks on the villages of Talmanes, Al Tamanah and Kafr Zeta, all located in northern Syria.OPCW said that “the descriptions, physical properties, behaviour of the gas, and signs and symptoms resulting from exposure, as well as the response of patients to the treatment leads” lead it conclude with a high degree of confidence that “chlorine, either pure or in mixture, is the toxic chemical in question.”

@AceBreakingNews ‘ Gas cylinder bomb caused blast at Turkish election rally – sources ‘

#AceBreakingNews – June.06: DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) – A bomb made from a gas cylinder packed with ball bearings caused one of the deadly blasts at a Kurdish election rally, Turkish security sources said on Saturday, a day after the attack killed two and wounded more than 100.

Two blasts, which President Tayyip Erdogan described as a “provocation” designed to undermine peace ahead of Sunday’s parliamentary election, tore through a rally where thousands had gathered in support of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) in Diyarbakir, the largest city in Turkey’s mainly Kurdish southeast.

Ball bearings, nails and other metal parts from the device were gathered as evidence under the supervision of prosecutors but no suspects have been identified, security sources told Reuters. Security camera footage was being analysed, the chief prosecutor in Diyarbakir said.
